[00:05:57] <Apsup> Batman Under the Red Hood was pretty good. But it had way too much crowbar, I cringed everytime crowbar went "Bamf".
[00:06:25] <Bronzdragon> Crowbar?
[00:07:29] <aria> Wait, is that a batman where batman puts on a different outfit, but with the batman outfit under it?
[00:07:44] <Apsup> Nooo...
[00:08:18] <Bronzdragon> C'mon, that's EVERY batman!
[00:08:24] <Apsup> Also Crowbar. Big(ish) metallic thing, famous for being Gordon Freeman's best buddy.
[00:08:49] <aria> I think he was questioning why batman uses a crowbar rather
[00:09:29] <Apsup> Well I never stated that Batman used the crowbar.
[00:09:42] <Apsup> There are other characters in Batman film than Batman.
[00:09:47] <aria> How does crowbar against batman do anything?
[00:09:57] <Apsup> Batman film with only Batman would be too artsy for me.
[00:10:06] <Apsup> Also crowbar was not used against Batman.
[00:10:41] <aria> Well, there is batman, dudes with bats and knifes and dumb punk outfits with too many belts, and an cartoon villain
[00:10:49] <aria> You don't need anyone else
[00:11:18] <Bronzdragon> ... Batman Vs Kenshiro
[00:11:21] <aria> I guess if you wanna explain why villain is evil besides the fact that villain is being punched by batman, so he must be evil, you can have him crowbar some random person I suppose
[00:11:25] <Bronzdragon> Who would win?
[00:11:32] <aria> Kenshiro
[00:11:41] <aria> Cmon, thats not even exiting
[00:11:42] <Bronzdragon> Wouldn't Batman outsmart him?
[00:11:49] <Bronzdragon> Kenshiro isn't super clever...
[00:11:53] <aria> How do you out-- see
[00:11:59] <aria> Kenshiro isn't super dumb
[00:12:02] <aria> he's just a regular dude
[00:12:04] <Apsup> A vs B "discussions" are meaningless without context, reasons for fight, and the publicher of the story.
[00:12:10] <aria> He's not gonna eat a nuke
[00:12:12] <aria> or walk into lava
[00:12:45] <aria> So there is no way for batman to kill him
[00:12:46] <Bronzdragon> Fine, Kenshiro walks into Arkham city, beats up random thugs, right?
[00:12:53] <aria> Aha
[00:12:57] <aria> Sounds like him
[00:12:58] <Bronzdragon> But Batman sees it from a distance, and doesn't realize thugs
[00:13:08] <aria> Or does, but doesn't like the exploding of thugs
[00:13:13] <Bronzdragon> So he plans to stop the new villain who's exploding thugs
[00:13:19] <Bronzdragon> Yup, sure!
[00:13:29] <aria> Right, so he drives into him with the batmobile
[00:13:36] <aria> That doesn't work
[00:13:38] <aria> Where goes after that =P?
[00:13:39] <Bronzdragon> ... how is that a good plan?!
[00:13:51] <aria> Cause no one can survive being driven over by a car!
[00:13:56] <Bronzdragon> First off, he'd use the bat-jet
[00:14:08] <aria> Alright, bat-jet missle, which I'm sure it ahs
[00:14:10] <Bronzdragon> And secodly, he's the world's greatest detective
[00:14:14] <aria> where goes after that =P?
[00:14:21] <Bronzdragon> he knows about hokuto shin-ken
[00:14:32] <aria> So he's gonna try and learn hokuto shinken?
[00:14:45] <Bronzdragon> ... Actually, Batman probably could...
[00:14:51] <aria> But only Kenshiro (and Raoh, Toki) can teach him Hokuto Shinken
[00:14:57] <aria> and Nanto isn't gonna do shit against Kenshiro
[00:16:03] <aria> This isn't a fair fight, because there is no way for Batman to be able to damage him
[00:17:04] <aria> If you instead say, do Batman vs Golgo 13
[00:17:15] <aria> Then sure, Batman could probably take Golgo 13 in a fist fight
[00:17:16] <Bronzdragon> Batman Vs Kenshiro
[00:17:18] <Bronzdragon> Wait no
[00:17:29] <Bronzdragon> Golgo 13 Vs Kenshiro
[00:17:35] <Bronzdragon> I don't think Kenshiro can stop a bullet...
[00:17:42] <aria> What?
[00:17:45] <aria> No, he can
[00:17:59] <aria> Kenshiro takes a shotgun to the face and doesn't blink! =P
[00:18:02] <aria> Jagi had a shotgun
[00:18:12] <Bronzdragon> ... I forgot that part.
[00:18:19] <aria> He also puts his finger into the barrel of a handgun
[00:18:19] <Bronzdragon> Fine, Jagi Vs Batman
[00:18:34] <aria> Batman
[00:18:39] <aria> Jagi is weak against bullets
[00:18:48] <aria> and not very mobile, or very clever
[00:19:22] <Bronzdragon> Batman doesn't use guns though
[00:19:32] <Bronzdragon> Hey, I feel like noodles...
[00:19:37] <Bronzdragon> [----] this much.
[00:19:42] <aria> But Batman discussions!
[00:19:52] <aria> You can get behind Jagi and battarang the shotgun out of his hand
[00:20:01] <aria> you'll still have the problem of Hokuto Shinken
[00:20:07] <aria> Batman can't take Jagi in a fist fight
[00:20:14] <Bronzdragon> Nope
[00:21:41] <aria> Still though, in almost every version of that fight that anyone would ever make, jagi would be standing under a spiked chandelier, or over a trap door, or something that batman could use against him
[00:21:49] <aria> Or like, in a puddle of flammable liquids
[00:22:30] <Bronzdragon> ... You mean 2 giant gas towers?
[00:22:52] <aria> Hm?
[00:23:47] <aria> Anyway, I'm sure batman has faught multiple Jagi-like people in the past
[00:24:13] <aria> Dude who's not the most clever, you can't win against in a fight fight, and also they have a shotgun and little else
[00:24:43] <Bronzdragon> Jagi also has a rocket launcher though
[00:24:58] <aria> He's not gonna hit batman with his rocket launcher =P
[00:25:22] <Bronzdragon> But...
[00:25:29] <Bronzdragon> He could hit civillians!
[00:25:42] <aria> That is true..
[00:26:00] <aria> But Jagi's goal with hitting civillians is to summon Kenshiro
[00:26:16] <aria> If Batman starts fighting him, he's not gonna go after anyone other than Batman until batman is dead
[00:26:29] <aria> cause to Kenshiro, Batman might as well be an civillian
[00:29:18] <aria> How do you think a fight between Kenshiro and Toki would go?
[00:29:24] <aria> I meant Batman
[00:29:26] <aria> not Kenshiro
[00:29:41] <Bronzdragon> ...
[00:29:52] <Bronzdragon> Toki would let himself get captures
[00:29:54] <Bronzdragon> *Captured
[00:30:03] <Bronzdragon> And Batman might realize he isn't a villain
[00:30:20] <Bronzdragon> Toki might serve some small ammount of time, get out, and start a clinic
[00:30:30] <Bronzdragon> I don't think there's pretty much any situtaion where they fight
[00:30:32] <Bronzdragon> Situation
[00:30:56] <aria> Really? You don't think Toki would just leave or put Batman in a timed paralysis?
[00:31:25] <aria> Oh if Toki actually did something wrong?
[00:31:26] <Bronzdragon> I don't think Batman would let Toki leave
[00:31:36] <Bronzdragon> He can't outrun Batman...
[00:31:46] <Bronzdragon> and Batman wouldn't let that go without reason
[00:31:46] <aria> Toki can outrun Batman =P
[00:31:59] <aria> I'm not talking about hiding
[00:32:02] <aria> just yknow
[00:32:03] <aria> running really fast
[00:32:26] <aria> If Toki did anything wrong, he'd just let himself be captured and serve time
[00:32:28] <Bronzdragon> Toki doesn't run...
[00:33:05] <aria> But if Batman went after him because he was a muscly badass, just assuming he's a villain because of the badassery
[00:33:12] <aria> then Toki would have to get out of there
[00:33:20] <Bronzdragon> I dunno...
[00:33:27] <Bronzdragon> I think Toki would just be passive
[00:33:29] <aria> and most likely not hurt the fellow dressed in a bat costume who may or may not be a bad guy
[00:34:31] <aria> You think he'd just take punches to the face because bitch, I'm Toki. =P?
[00:34:55] <aria> Batman jumps down from the cieling and does a glide kick to his face, he just stands there
[00:35:07] <Bronzdragon> Nah, he blocks it with his hand
[00:35:16] <Bronzdragon> but he will just stand there, blocking everything
[00:35:19] <Bronzdragon> And try and talk to Batman
[00:35:25] <aria> "Ah, hello. I see you fell on my face. Better be more careful next time!"
[00:36:06] <aria> Fair enough. I can imagine Batman listning in that situation
[00:36:23] <aria> Who are some of the weaker characters in HnK?
[00:36:26] <aria> Rei?
[00:36:28] <aria> Yo yo lady?
[00:37:02] <aria> Oh mans I'd pay money to see Batman hunting down Blackjack!
[00:37:56] <Bronzdragon> Oeh, good call
[00:38:02] <Bronzdragon> he's even a fugutive!
[00:38:10] <Bronzdragon> Perfect!
[00:38:29] <Bronzdragon> ... imma make noodles
[00:38:31] <Bronzdragon> Ciao~
[00:38:31] <aria> Yeah, Blackjack is just straight up a criminal
[00:38:35] <Bronzdragon> =P
[00:38:37] <Bronzdragon> Yup
[00:38:49] <aria> and would probably try and kill Batman if he got the chance
[00:41:06] <Apsup> Nighty night everyone. (Everyone being pretty much only aria and Bronz, it seems)
[00:41:23] <aria> I guess people in here just don't like Batman
[00:41:25] <aria> Or Hokuto no Ken
[00:41:29] <aria> Or Black jack
[00:41:31] <aria> .. =(

[12:28:34] <Bronzdragon> =O
[12:28:58] <Bronzdragon> My mom claims to have fried egg. I will see about this claim, and see if it'll fit in my mouth
[12:29:02] <Bronzdragon> Cya in a few~
[12:29:11] <aria> good luck =)
[12:30:38] <lukeburrage> I can'r see the difference.
[12:33:12] <lukeburrage> On Youtube, that is.

[12:46:47] <aria> I looked at it in two different browsers
[12:46:49] <aria> They have different icons
[12:47:01] <aria> And the shadows/highlights are different
[12:47:14] <aria> But thats just a rendering thing, the actual gradient background looks to be the same
[12:47:18] <aria> http://i.imgur.com
[12:48:09] <Bronzdragon> Oh, that bottom
[12:48:31] <Bronzdragon> Interestinlgy enough, the bottom video player is larger
[12:48:47] <aria> That's the more recent one
[12:49:06] <Bronzdragon> I guess that could be because different aspect ratios for the videos
[12:49:06] <aria> That probably is why I thought the gradient was different
[12:49:12] <aria> Because I can see it more clearly! =P
[12:49:31] <aria> It's not, it's just how it looks now
[12:49:59] -!- VentureJ has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[12:50:01] <aria> I'm sure they'll make the gradient less subtle in a few days
[12:50:09] <aria> More subtle**

[15:49:56] <apreche> It's FRIDAY, time to get down.
[15:50:17] <apreche> wanna go home play NS2 so bad
[15:52:59] <Bronzdragon> ... I should play some NS2
[15:53:02] <Bronzdragon> because I bought it
[15:53:07] <Bronzdragon> Because you told me to
[15:53:18] <Bronzdragon> (I'm impresionable)
[15:53:26] <aria> You should play a game for men instead. Like the manly ones
[15:53:37] <apreche> NS2 is not for men, it's for aline
[15:53:39] <apreche> aliens
[15:53:46] <Bronzdragon> ... I'm not an Alien
[15:53:51] <apreche> CS:GO is for men
[15:54:08] <Bronzdragon> Oh, wanna play some CS:GO after you get back home?
[15:54:16] <apreche> no, gonna play NS2
[15:54:41] <Bronzdragon> But I don't know how to press E on power noooooodes
[15:56:28] <Bronzdragon> Aria suggested we build a wall of alien corpses so the marines can't get through.
[15:59:30] <Apsup> apreche: I want to go home to play NS2 also. I just have to wait the whole weekend for that.
[16:02:10] <Apsup> Bronz: You don't need to know how to press E on power nooodes, as long as you know how to press Left Mouse Button on Power nooooodes.
[16:02:22] <Bronzdragon> Wait, you shoot power nodes?
[16:02:29] <Bronzdragon> <-- confused
[16:02:33] <aria> *punch*
[16:03:37] <apreche> I think he's saying that if you don't know how to press E, you can't play marine
[16:03:41] <apreche> but if you know how to left click, you can play alien.
[16:04:01] <aria> But playing Alien is dumb and for dummies
[16:04:16] <Apsup> Also if you wear wielder you can fix/build powernode by pressing Left Mouse button, so no E required.
[16:13:00] <apreche> welder is also much faster

[16:28:01] <apreche> I'm trying to do some actual work to make the day go by faster
[16:30:40] <creamsteak> that works for me... sometimes
[16:40:42] <nine> "I'm trying to do some actual work to make the day go by faster" Unlike usual where you just take your employer's money while doing nothing or so?
[16:55:37] <creamsteak> slowest day for me is meetings days
[16:55:56] <creamsteak> quickest day for me is I'm really writing a million code and not having to get distracted

[17:06:36] <apreche> meetings are usually fastest days.
[17:06:41] <apreche> but are very rare
[17:10:57] * creamsteak hates meetings... they never accomplish anything here...
[17:11:34] * originalme8 agrees.
[17:13:22] <aria> Is Lightworks free?
[17:13:32] <Bronzdragon> Gun go set the table
[17:16:17] <creamsteak> Gun! Go set the table!
[17:16:46] <originalme8> I'm confused.
[17:22:13] <aria> Ah, 60 bucks
[17:22:18] <aria> Ima get that then
[17:22:25] <aria> It doesn't do webM
[17:22:28] <aria> that's a shame
[17:27:00] <originalme8> Anyone know of a decent free/cheap RTS game?
[17:27:13] <apreche> Starcraft 1?
[17:27:28] <aria> Why not pirate starcraft 2?
[17:27:31] <originalme8> Yea, been there. :P
[17:27:54] <originalme8> I was thinking something more off the beaten path.
[17:28:27] <apreche> Sacrifice is $3 on gog.com
[17:28:49] <apreche> controls are a little weird
[17:28:56] <apreche> and it's a 3rd person RTS
[17:29:00] <apreche> you are actually a wizard that runs around
[17:29:04] <apreche> summoning guys and ordering them
[17:29:15] <originalme8> interesting
[17:29:39] <apreche> FTL is technically RTS
[17:29:44] <apreche> with pausing
[17:29:53] <originalme8> Yea, I thought about FTL too.
[17:29:57] <aria> http://www.gog.com
[17:30:26] <originalme8> Ah, this will get me started! Thanks guys
[17:30:44] * creamsteak ponders a tentacle vending machine...
[17:31:19] <originalme8> o.O
[17:31:48] <creamsteak> like a regular japanese vending machine, with a selection of various tentacles in a can or something
[17:32:48] * originalme8 is intrigued.
[17:43:07] <apreche> The cans should say they have tentacles in them
[17:43:16] <apreche> but actually, they just have springy snakes
[17:43:19] <apreche> and the vending machine has a camera in it

[18:09:12] <pence> because I thought he was setting up for "women"
[18:09:21] <aria> Me too
[18:09:29] <aria> Which is why I was confused
[18:09:39] <aria> also, no way a third of Americans are gay males =P
[18:10:32] <originalme8> Yea, at least 20% of Americans have to be gay females.
[18:11:09] <Bronzdragon> Not to mention the part of americans that are neither male nor female!
[18:11:39] <originalme8> We don't count Walmartians.
[18:12:10] <aria> Apperantly the new Bond is good
[18:12:15] <aria> But it still has Daniel Craig
[18:12:17] <Bronzdragon> We should watch that then
[18:12:18] <aria> so I doubt that
[18:13:08] <Bronzdragon> ... I don't get how "so there's female porn" = "Gay men watching porn is a problem"
[18:16:24] <okeefe> "Struggle with". Heheh.
[18:25:39] <originalme8> I read that as "snuggle with". Thought, what the hell does that have to do with porn?
[18:26:49] <Bronzdragon> snuggling?
[18:34:02] <Apsup> aria: You have something against Craig. His first Bond film was ok imho.
[18:34:35] <aria> His face
[18:35:32] <Bronzdragon> Casino Royale?
[18:35:47] <Bronzdragon> Meh

[20:22:34] <apreche> Ponies in about 18.5 hours
[20:22:35] <apreche> OH SHIT
[20:23:07] <apreche> NS2 in about 2 hours
[20:23:09] <Bronzdragon> When i wake up? Sounds awesome.
[20:23:09] <apreche> ALSO OH SHIT
[20:23:25] <Bronzdragon> Wait, what happens to NS in 2 hours?
[20:23:45] <apreche> I go home and play that shit!
[20:24:42] <farragar> I still haven't played it, is it good?
[20:24:57] <apreche> WTF you people even need to ask?
[20:24:58] <okeefe> farragar: Do you listen to the podcast?
[20:25:00] <farragar> Friend of mine was kind enough to spend me a spare copy
[20:25:13] <apreche> And why haven't you all been playing NS1 since 2002?
[20:25:28] <apreche> Yeha, I think I actually have a free gift copy also because I pre-ordered.
[20:25:33] <farragar> I was playing UT and MMOs in 2002
[20:25:40] <farragar> I now regret it.
[20:25:45] <apreche> UT is for babyz
[20:25:56] <Bronzdragon> =O
[20:26:07] <farragar> Nah, the 1v1 was actually very similar to Q3A 1v1
[20:26:37] <farragar> no team area equivalent though
[20:27:33] <farragar> I also have a spare copy of dota 2 for whoever wants it
[20:36:21] -!- creamsteak has quit [Quit: plague]
[20:36:59] <aria> ...
[20:37:09] <aria> Because by 2004, NS1 wasn't any good anymore
[20:37:24] <aria> I'm sure everyone here tried NS1 when it was new
[20:37:34] <okeefe> aria: Waiting for apreche to jump in with "You shut your whore mouth!"
[20:38:03] <apreche> Except NS1 is still good even today
[20:38:11] <farragar> I was a bit too young for ns1 when it came out, those were my console days.
[20:38:24] <aria> Where you played NS1 in 2008?
[20:38:48] <apreche> I have played NS1 at least a little every year it has existed.
[20:38:57] <apreche> maybe 2013 I won't play it.
[20:39:06] <farragar> Is the libsyn down? I can't got to any of the podcasts
[20:39:10] <apreche> or maybe I'll load it up once for a reason
[20:41:36] <farragar> libsyn is not down, my connection is being weird.
[20:42:10] <aria> Libsyn is slow
[20:42:42] <farragar> Nah, it's just not loading from my host for some reason
[20:42:51] <farragar> tunnel through my server works just fine
[20:44:08] <Bronzdragon> Get a better DNS?
[20:44:17] <apreche> Google DNS
[20:44:19] <apreche>
[20:44:23] <farragar>
[20:44:31] <Bronzdragon>, can't lose.
[20:44:46] <farragar> I'm on the uni dns, it's resolving everything else
[20:45:12] <aria> Google DNS with local backup > straight up slow ass google DNS
[20:50:21] <apreche> aria speaks truth
[20:50:33] <apreche> that setup also allows you to add some local domain
[21:00:14] <aria> I always speak truth. It also is faster.
[21:04:05] <pence> I just found out existed last week when I told a coworker I always ping to see if my internet is working
[21:06:07] <Bronzdragon> What's at
[21:08:49] <pence> all I ever knew about it was that it was a DNS
[21:10:24] <pence> apparently I'm not alone: http://www.tummy.com

[21:49:37] <apreche> I swear, sometimes I feel like the only person whoa ctually reads Internets.
[21:49:42] <apreche> How could you people not know NS2?
[21:49:45] <apreche> this late in the game
[21:49:50] <apreche> what other stuff don't you know?
[21:50:01] <apreche> Anyone here not know about Super Metroid?
[21:50:06] <apreche> Yeah, there was a Metroid game on SNES.
[21:50:06] * originalme8 doesn't game often. Especially with work lately.
[21:50:09] <originalme8> What's that?
[21:50:12] <originalme8> :P
[21:51:51] <aria> Coming from the person who has replayed Zelda 1 multiple times, but not played Dark Souls
[21:51:53] <Apsup> To be fair, Natural Selection 2 is indie game and it's coverage in video game media has been limited.
[21:52:17] <apreche> Limited? It's everywhere I look!
[21:52:57] <apreche> You know
[21:53:06] <apreche> I just realized, I don't read any game media anymore at all
[21:53:20] <apreche> "everywhere I look" is twitter/reddit/forums/etc.
[21:53:30] <Apsup> Exactly, where you look. We still don't live in the perfect world of Scott Rubin where every person on the planet is Scott Rubin and until that happes stop assuming it's so.
[21:53:39] <aria> And Kamen Riders are everywhere I look, but I know I'm seeking that shit out =P To be fair, Im not sure how popular NS2 is, it's also many places I look
[21:54:19] <apreche> Perhaps the solution is for everyone to build a social network that is big enough to get them all necessary info such that they won't go to stupid sites either.
[21:54:56] <Apsup> Then it would be so big that amount of noise would drive out meaningful information.
[21:55:10] <apreche> well, mine is certaintly the right size
[21:55:22] <aria> I like descovering new things. Like yknow, what's happening in the world of politics and other global news things
[21:55:35] <apreche> news.google.com
[21:55:51] <aria> How is that not in the stupid site catagory?
[21:55:59] <apreche> it's an aggregator
[21:56:06] <apreche> and is customized
[21:56:17] <aria> So is every blog that takes user contributions
[21:56:21] <aria> Like say Slashdot
[21:56:38] <apreche> the only sites I go to are google news, reddit, boingboing
[21:56:42] <apreche> collegehumor
[21:56:44] <apreche> youtube
[21:56:49] <apreche> twitter
[21:56:53] <apreche> our forum
[21:56:58] <apreche> umm
[21:57:05] <aria> Collegehumor counts as stupid site, as it's not YouTube
[21:57:14] <apreche> i only go to the videos section
[21:57:28] <apreche> I read a bunch of web comics
[21:57:38] <apreche> I think that's it
[21:57:41] <apreche> but with just those sites
[21:57:45] <apreche> nothing escapes me
[21:57:47] <aria> Do they all get linked to you episode by episode on twitter?
[21:58:04] <apreche> what do you mean?
[21:58:19] <apreche> oh, the web comics, I have bookmarks
[21:58:31] <apreche> every morning I "load all in tabs"
[21:58:34] <originalme8> I typically just use Google Reader
[21:58:35] <apreche> on the web-comic bookmark folder
[21:58:44] <apreche> stopped using google reader long ago
[21:58:46] <apreche> then started again
[21:58:48] <apreche> then stopped again
[21:59:04] <originalme8> I like it. It's simple and clean.
[21:59:23] <aria> Speaking of Google reader, the feed that's the longest since it has updated in my Google reader is apreche.com
[21:59:26] <aria> You should get on that
[22:00:01] <apreche> that makes sense since apreche.com doesn't exist
[22:00:11] <aria> Is it net?
[22:00:18] <apreche> it is net
[22:00:28] <apreche> and I update it whenever I feel like it
[22:00:31] <apreche> which is not often
[22:00:35] <Apsup> "nothing escapes me" Let's take that thought Scott - English translation. "I don't know about the things I miss so they don't exsist."
[22:00:49] <aria> Yup =P
[22:02:50] <apreche> almost all of the time I am the person who is telling people things they do not know of that they should know.
[22:03:01] <apreche> Any time someone tries to tell/show me something, I have almost always already seen it.
[22:03:23] <apreche> but I guess there are two levels of telling
[22:03:25] <aria> Are these people above the age of 40 and non-geeks who happen to work at the same palce as you?
[22:03:28] <apreche> like if someone tweets something, and I read it
[22:03:32] <apreche> then I SAW it
[22:03:36] <apreche> but if someone tells me about it in person
[22:03:40] <apreche> they they are trying to TELL it
[22:04:04] <apreche> if you find it on teh Internets you take credit like you found it, even though another person broadcast it.
[22:04:14] <apreche> think about that
[22:04:16] <apreche> while I go home
[22:04:41] <aria> I usually tell people about it starting with "Someone linked it on X"
[22:04:56] <aria> Depending on what it is I suppose
[22:05:06] <aria> If I find it through googling, I take credit
[22:05:11] <aria> Or if Im subscribed to a feed
[22:06:43] <aria> Holy shit I just descovered a secret hallway with 3 crystal lizards!
[22:07:03] <aria> I thought for sure I knew everything there is to know about DkS
[22:09:38] <Apsup> There is one problem in apreche's statements. He might be the one that tells other peoplr "important" stuff rather than being the one who recieves information about such stuff, but that's just because of the subjective nature of what's "important".
[22:10:56] <Apsup> If ten people tell Scott (for example) about interesting game they just found out about, Scott dismisses 9 of them and considers one to be interesting and "something one should know", but when Scott tells to 10 people about game he found out about 9 of those people might be interested of the game.
[22:10:57] <Robobuntu> you can't if ten people!
[22:11:38] <aria> See, that's fine
[22:11:44] <aria> If his thing is interesting to more people
[22:11:59] <aria> then his thing is should win, cause majority vote, right?
[22:12:17] <aria> But it might just be that 9 of them dismiss it
[22:12:35] <aria> But because it's important to him, he just assumes since they heard him out, they care about it
[22:13:39] <Apsup> Well to be fair Scott's tastes might be limited, but good.
[22:13:53] <aria> Yeah, I usually like the same shit as him
[22:14:57] <aria> Well, he usually likes X, and says it's super unique and nothing else has gotten X-like things right. But I think Y did X-like-ness better and prefer that, still enjoying X, but less than Scott does
