]<Brellion> I wonder why Soap doesn't come here anymore
]<Nessari> it's only been a few months since he was last here, I thought
]<Nessari> but that might not be exclusive to that, so nvm
]<@pharazon> he is here
]<@pharazon> who did you think clawgrip was
]<Cev> I thought he was King.
]<Brellion> clawgrip is Soap!?
]<@pharazon> yeah ...
]<Cev> What with how often clawgrip goes on about weightlifting and Pflugerville.
]<Brellion> how did you find that out?
]<Brellion> I never knew this
]<Brellion> I never see clawgrip talk
]<@pharazon> Brellion: put the pieces together
]<Brellion> what part
]<@pharazon> clawgrip's whois is in japan
]<Brellion> Soap is in Japan now?
]<Brellion> see I had no clue about him being in Japan
]<@pharazon> me neither
]<@pharazon> until now
]<@pharazon> apropos of nothing does it ever happen to you that you tell a lie not expecting to be believed at all but then the other person totally falls for it and you aren't sure how long to keep it up
]* Brellion is now known as Brel
]* ChanServ sets mode: +o Brel
]* pharazon was kicked by Brel (pharazon)
]<Slereah> Naeddyr stop appropriating my culture
]<Naeddyr> Slereah you are a frenchman living in the 20th century
]<Naeddyr> you can't even write hebrew
]<Naeddyr> or aramaic
]<Cev> Oy vey!
]<Slereah> Or am I a judean merchant in 200 BCE Jerusalem
]<Naeddyr> too late
]<Slereah> I could read hebrew
]<Naeddyr> literally, put it a bit earlier
]<Slereah> When I was 6
]<Naeddyr> ok then i will stop
]<Slereah> My dad tried teaching me
]<Slereah> But it did not stick
]<Slereah> b/c who cares
]<Slereah> This was 1992
]<Slereah> I had some Ninja Turtles to watch
]<Slereah> And I had to Do the Mario
]<Slereah> Also possibly Do the Bartman
]<Slereah> This is what rabbis talk about when they talk about assimilation
]<Slereah> They mean doing the Mario
]<Slereah> Instead of learning hebrew
]<pthagnar> Just saw a speech given by the Latvian ambassador to the US. It was very interesting since Latvia holds presidency of the EU right now.
]<Slereah> this brings up troublesome questions
]<Slereah> Like "what is Latvia"
<Anguipes> finally, finally ready to play skyrim! *spends another three days deciding what kind of character to play*
<Cev> Download the mod zompist used that let him play as a topless chick
<Anguipes> what is it with playing as topless chicks
<Cev> He likes tits and then acting like he's able to say it's some problem with YOU when you point it out
<Cev> "blah blah hunter-gatherers blah blah asymmetry of taboo areas blah blah I put tits on everything"

22:44 < nort> backgammon player
22:44 < nort> lmao
22:44 < Legion> backgammon is pretty cool
22:44 < Legion> and pretty fucking old
22:45 < Legion> like, the oldest attested boardgames are sorta backgammon???
22:45 < Legion> and it seems to be the only board game to have been invented independently several times???
<Cev> I wonder how one would get a copy of an MA thesis from University of Toronto
<Legion> you go there and threaten to kill a hostage every hour until they give it to you
<Slereah> "Despite the fact that the only people who don't know Spider-Man was bitten by a radioactive spider are also people who don't have access to clean water, housing, vaccines, or walls that prevent cheetahs from eating them, Hollywood will insist on telling us how Parker got those powers over and over again."
<Cev> I don't mind origin stories
<Cev> I find they tend to be the most interesting entries
<Smaug> Cev everyone knows Spider-Man's origin story, though
<Smaug> Spidey, Superman, and Jesus have the best known origin stories in the world
<Smaug> no one needs to see them on screen for the hundredth time
<Smaug> there is no one on earth going to see a Spiderman movie who doesn't already know the broad strokes and just wants action
<Slereah> Batman was bitten by a radioactive bat
<Slereah> Iron man touched some radioactive iron
<guitarplayer> and Dr. Manhattan was touched by a radioactive Manhattan~
<Slereah> a radioactive Hattan*
