<Tanaphor> I like how in veterinary booklets they make you write the name of the pet
<Tanaphor> Writing MITTENS in this very serious document
<@pharazon> today we honor the noble dog who gave his life in saving 5 children from a burning building
<@pharazon> mr floofers
<Tanaphor> Back from zee doctor
<Tanaphor> I now have
<Tanaphor> SICK DAYS
<Cevv> what do you have
<Cevv> you too?
<Cevv> I'm gonna end up being the only cis in this channel in not too long
<Whimemsz> why, what's the deal with the father?
<Tanaphor> He is dull apparently
<Tanaphor> a man with no passion
<Smaug> my theory is that he signed his soul away to a demon but didn't realize that he had to surrender it immediately

<Whimemsz> Aiamie Tipadjimo8in Masinaigan, Ka Ojitogobanen Kaiat Ka Niina8isi Mekade8ikonaie8igobanen Kanactageng, 8ak8i Ena8indibanen = Ayami'e-dibaajimowin-mazina'igan, Gaa-ozhitoogobanen Gayat Gaa-nii'inawizi-mekadewikonayewigobanen Kanashtaageng, Waakwi Enawiindibanen "A Book of Christian Stories, Which Was Made Long Ago by a Missionary to the Indians at Oka, ‘Waakwi, Heaven’ As He Was Named"
<Whimemsz> (this is actually hard to translate perfectly because it repeatedly uses the preterit-dubitative which essentially means, "the action happened in the past and I wasn't there for it" and "the guy I'm talking about is dead and I never knew him")
<@H13> these words are entirely
<@H13> too long
<@H13> really if you spell out the fact that e is always long
<Whimemsz> gaa-nii'inawizi-mekadewikonayewigobanen = "one who was a missionary [lit. one who has black clothing] to the Indians but is now dead and I never knew him"
<@H13> morphology was a mistake
<Tanaphor> books more like boobs
<Ser> I'm trying to find an image of a girl with her breasts resting on a thick open book
<Ser> can't find any
<Ser> let's say I paid some girl to take a picture of herself with her tits out resting on a book
<Ser> what would be a good choice of book
<Tanaphor> A tale of two titties
<Tanaphor> it was the breast of times
<Tanaphor> it was the worst of times
<Ser> seriously though, no suggestions for the book other than Dickens?
<Tanaphor> Finnegan's Wank
<@Cev> Which is why I think the whole "arranged marriages in hunter-gatherers" thing is a red herring
<@Cev> when it comes to instinctive human female mate choice preferences
<@Cev> The instinct is clearly *there* and it didn't just spring out of nowhere
<@Cev> Those elephants must be using those tusks for SOMETHING
<tiramisu> maybe they're just for being pretty!
<tiramisu> like boobies.
<tiramisu> and massive penises that don't fit inside you.
<@Cev> You underestimate me
<@Cev> oh apparently there is a line in The Prisoner of Azkaban that explicitly says Hermione is white?
<Whimemsz> what's the line?
<@Cev> "Herminoe's white face was sticking out from behind a tree."
<Tanaphor> is there a line about Dumbledore's straight face, too?
<Yatalac> holy shit
<Yatalac> i feel like i've seen the loch ness monster
<Rhetorike> we are all the loch ness monster
<@Cev> rhetorica was just quoting J Robert Oppenheimer
<@Cev> after the atomic bomb he said "Now we are all the loch ness monster"
<Rhetorike> we are become loch ness, destroyer of f-stop
<@Cev> oh wait wikipedia says that it was Kenneth Bainbridge who said that
<Rhetorike> yeah, oppenheimer said the line i just quoted
<Whimemsz> oh, apparently Oppenheimer didn't say it at the time
<Whimemsz> I didn't know that
<Whimemsz> he just thought about it
<@pharazon> do you think he regretted not saying it
<@pharazon> i mean you don't get a chance like that very often
<@Cev> I bet he was going to but then Bainbridge stepped on his dick before he had the chance
<@Cev> and ruined the moment
<Whimemsz> yeah probably
<Whimemsz> what a jerk
<@pharazon> it was probably kind of awkward
<@pharazon> like they all had some line prepared
<@pharazon> and everyone tried to say theirs at the same time
<@Cev> yeah like I bet Fermi was all ready to quote the line from the Bible where it talked about God punishing the unbelievers with loch ness monsters
<Smaug> I'm reading a book about Minas Gerais during the first republic
<Smaug> it turns out that the state was very boring.
<Smaug> in other states you had communists and anarchists running amok
<Smaug> blood feuds
<Smaug> civil wars
<@pharazon> First republic
<@pharazon> Was that after the line of Gondor failed
<Smaug> phar it gets even worse
<Smaug> Brazil's first republic is also known as the Old Republic
<Izmabri> Minas Anor, Minas Ithil and Minas Gerais. The three great cities of the Elder Days.
<@Legion> Bach has a lot of famous compositions but, it's only a tiny bit of all the stuff he composed (over 1000 known compositions)
<CUM_SIURAN> what's the worst thing bach composed
<Tanaphor> CUM_SIURAN : Fart Noises in A minor
<@Legion> you're thinking of Mozart
<@Legion> *historical joke*
<CUM_SIURAN> I'm glad that you, a queer man, agree with me about whether a cartoon rat in a children's tv show seems like he would be plausibly gay
<Play> tomorrow itll say "Did You Know .... the Voynich manuscript has been deciphered? And it only took 2 hours!"
<Tanaphor> Someone noticed that we've been holding it upside down the whole time
<Tanaphor> and it was actually plain English
<Tanaphor> I made too many macaronis
<Tanaphor> I may die
<Tanaphor> of pasta poisoning
<Radius> you'll be pasta point of no return
<Whimemsz> man Piraha is such a fake language
<Whimemsz> there's no way it's real
<Whimemsz> one of these days we're gonna learn it was all an elaborate hoax
<@cev> I don't feel that way about Piraha
<@cev> I feel that way about the ridiculous fucking, like
<@cev> Secret Phoneme
<@cev> it has
<Whimemsz> the raspberry phoneme or whatever?
<@cev> "The language has a secret phoneme that I never once heard in 30 years living among them because they all restrained themselves from saying it when I was within earshot all the time, every day." "Really, what is it?" "*makes ridiculous farting noise with mouth*"
<@guitarplayer> ofc our doors are also different from those in America
<@cev> they don't open from the inside?
<Smaug> hinges are on the top
<Smaug> you secure it with a hook
<@guitarplayer> the door leaf doesn't close into the frame
<@guitarplayer> because the hinge is outside of the frame
<@guitarplayer> not built into it
<@cev> This is what gp has to go through each time he wants to enter or leave his house:
<Tanaphor> This is the most boringest conversation of all times
<Tanaphor> I may have to commit suicide
<Tanaphor> to escape discussing door hinges
<Whimemsz> I agree with Tanaphor, let's talk about something else
<Tanaphor> Oh look
<Tanaphor> the two jews agree on something
<Laptop_Cev> btw for real it wasn't until like 2 weeks ago that I learned that the knights Templar and the knights Hospitaller were named because they were associated with a temple and a hospital respectively
<Laptop_Cev> I'm really dumb, man.
<Laptop_Cev> Like really dumb.
<@pharazon> wait til you find out they were knights
<Tanaphor> that was a spooky hour
<Tanaphor> PC wouldn't boot back up
<Tanaphor> had to remove a RAM bar
<Tanaphor> mb it's shot I dunno
<Ser> Tanaphor: time to save all the porn files
<Tanaphor> That is slander but also accurate
<@Legion> Izambri > those aren't dildos, those are external vibrators
<@Legion> (unless you're very brave)
<Tanaphor> Well I mean
<Tanaphor> you can use it internally
<Tanaphor> (I have done so)
<@Legion> (you're very brave)
<Whimemsz> "A joke dated c. AD 400, recently translated from Greek, shows similarities to the Parrot sketch. It was written by Hierocles and Philagrius and was included in a compilation of 265 jokes titled Philogelos: The Laugh Addict. In the Greek version, a man complains to a slave-merchant that his new slave has died. The slave-merchant replies, "When he was with me, he never did any such thing!""
<Whimemsz> that's a quality ancient joke
<@guitarplayer> Hierocles & Philagrius, Greek stand-up comedians of c. 400 AD
<@Tanaphor> What's the deal with trireme food?
<@Cev> I just sailed in from Cyprus and boy are my arms tired!
<@Cev> Because I was a galley slave!
<@Tanaphor> Ever notice how Athenians walk like this
<@Tanaphor> But abderites walk like *this*
<Smaug> I once threw an open container of apple sauce at someone as my bus was leaving in a Friday afternoon in high school
<Smaug> it hit a kid right in the face as he was walking to his mom's car
<Karch> poor guy
<Smaug> oh boy karch
<Smaug> I would throw rocks and batteries
<Smaug> spit gum at passing cars
<Smaug> I feel bad, because I remember that kid was looking really happy
<Smaug> he was having a great day, and the weekend had just started
<Karch> and them BAM!
<Smaug> precisely :)
<Smaug> on the other hand, it was the most perfect throw I've ever done
<Smaug> thrown with my right hand, on a moving bus, at a moving target
<Smaug> obviously God wanted that to happen
<Whimemsz> man, I need to, at some point, make Hikoomayii less of an Algonquian ripoff
<@Cev> Don't feel bad about making a conlang that's a natlang ripoff.
<@pharazon> every word i've ever said in this channel has been in a natlang-ripoff conlang and no one has noticed
<@pharazon> so don't worry about it
<Play> i have decided to derive the person markers in Poswa & Pabappa from evidential
<Play> so "i feel" becomes 1st person, "i see" becomes 3rd person, i forget what the 2nd person is
<@Cev> "i forget"
<@Cev> the best evidential
<@H13> i became incel long after i first had sex
<@H13> hashtag fuck the rules
<CUM_SIURAN> how fucked are you money-wise?
<pthag> how would i know how fucked i am
<pthag> the future contains unknown fuckers
<yng> I hope you are unfucked
<yng> that the penis of misfortune
<yng> removes itself
<pthag> oh, another penis of misfortune may well be dicking me soon
<@Cev> phar you lived in Michigan
<@Cev> whats ur take on racist porn?

<Whimemsz> thank you for doing so much science, Cev
<@pharazon> Whimemsz: but what about the replication crisis
<@pharazon> i had better try to duplicate these results
<Izambri> Naima this year Easter falls on
