[13:09:11] <aria> http://youtu.be
[13:19:13] <Apsup> Is it just me or does it seem like I would have more cargo carrying capasity with my bicycle and backpack rather than with that thing.
[13:25:41] <aria> I don't think that's true
[13:25:47] <aria> Although it would probably be close
[13:26:09] <aria> Though you do have leg room to put your backpack in
[13:27:10] <Apsup> It seems like it has little room anyways. For me car is for two things. On trips that are too long for bicycle or for trips where you need to carry lots of stuff. Moderate amount of cargo room is needed for both. Also ability to carry passengers is plus.
[13:27:13] -!- Bronzdragon [Bronzdragon!bronzdrago@hide-48E615F.adsl.xs4all.nl] has joined #geeknights
[13:27:31] <Bronzdragon> Hello
[13:27:54] <Apsup> Ho
[13:30:11] <aria> I dunno, I'd say it has enough room for a moderately long trip. It doesn't fill the second criteria though
[13:30:24] <Bronzdragon> Hey Apsup!
[13:34:35] <Bronzdragon> Fun fact, todays XKCD describes how I do 90% of my scecurity
[13:34:38] <aria> http://youtu.be
[13:34:41] <Bronzdragon> http://xkcd.com
[13:35:11] <Bronzdragon> Huh, I've seen that short before, though I'm not sure where.
[13:37:57] <aria> American ISP Cablevision has started taking away your internet access for 24 hours every time they confirm you pirate something
[13:38:34] <Bronzdragon> ...
[13:38:39] <Bronzdragon> Soooo... 24/7?
[13:38:52] <aria> Yup
[13:40:34] <aria> =O
[13:40:40] <aria> Assassins Creed 4 is about pirates!
[13:40:42] <aria> Finally
[13:41:06] <Bronzdragon> Seems obvious, right?
[13:41:11] <aria> It does?
[13:41:20] <aria> I dunno, I wanted it to be about pirates since the second game
[13:41:26] <Bronzdragon> Open world game set in history = Sid Meir's pirates
[13:41:37] <aria> Yes
[13:41:39] <aria> but its old
[13:41:43] <aria> And not all that great
[13:41:48] <Bronzdragon> *Meier
[13:41:54] <Bronzdragon> =P
[13:44:03] <aria> The editing and acting in this documentary-type thing is terrible
[13:45:25] <Bronzdragon> Oh no!
[13:45:35] <Bronzdragon> What is the documentary type thing about?
[13:45:59] <aria> Electric unicycle
[14:50:32] <Bronzdragon> You guys (not Aria) are boring
[14:52:43] <Apsup> Well sorry about that, but I have stuff to do.
[14:53:04] <aria> Stuff is fun
[14:53:07] <aria> share your stuff with us
[14:53:12] <Bronzdragon> ^
[14:53:19] <Apsup> I'm planning this weeks Burning Wheel session.
[14:53:24] <Bronzdragon> I hope it's some of the good stuff
[14:53:30] <Bronzdragon> I need a good hit, man.
[14:53:31] <Apsup> Kinda hard when I don't have believes to work with.
[14:53:39] <aria> Does it have drawf dragons?
[14:53:44] <Apsup> No.
[14:53:56] <Bronzdragon> I believe that I exist in the matrix, and will try everything to prove so.
[15:15:58] <aria> What is postcyberpunk?
[15:18:25] <Apsup> It's like when you go little futher than cyberpunk which usually is like liittle bit into the future. I guess?
[15:19:15] <aria> But isn't cyberpunk already in the future?
[15:19:27] <aria> Wait, so is it..
[15:19:35] <aria> if you have really bad imagination
[15:19:43] <aria> and set your story in the year 5000
[15:19:49] <Apsup> Yes, but it's little bit into the future, post cyberpunk is like past the future of cyberpunk.
[15:19:55] <aria> and there is no like distant apocalypse that we survived
[15:20:04] <aria> But somehow, technology isn't very advanced?
[15:20:06] <Apsup> I think that's just scifi.
[15:20:39] <Apsup> It's more like if cyberpunk is around 2020-2050 postcyberpunk would be like 2100.
[15:21:25] <aria> But 30 years in the future is enough to be sci fi, usually
[15:21:47] <Apsup> Well yes, cyberpunk is kinda scifi maybe, but that's not what I mean.
[15:21:49] <aria> Like Back to The future 2 being set in 2017
[15:21:54] <aria> and 2001 in 2001
[15:22:29] <aria> Cyberpunk is when some things are futurey, but most things aren't, right?
[15:22:44] <Apsup> kinda but not really.
[15:24:44] <Apsup> As I see it some of the most typical themes in cyberpunk is all about the growing power of corporations and the issues that come from developing technology like cyber parts in humans.
[15:25:51] <aria> So postcyberpunk is like..
[15:26:34] <aria> Actually I don't know.
[15:27:44] <Bronzdragon> :3
[15:27:50] <Apsup> Well I'd guess that it could deal with the question of what then after those issues have been dealth with or something.
[15:59:28] <nine> aria, Cyberpunk is not when "most thing aren't futurey".
[16:17:11] <Bronzdragon> Then what is it, nine?
[16:23:42] <aria> Nine
[16:24:07] <aria> how much money is the minimal I can live off in a month?
[16:24:24] <aria> Mums telling me this job which makes 3k euros a month pays way too little
[16:24:32] <aria> But it seems perfectly resonable to me
[16:26:21] <nine> 3k a month should be enough but it depends on where you life.
[16:26:36] <nine> In NYC it can likely be too little.
[16:26:47] <nine> But living small let's you go a long way with little money.
[16:27:09] <nine> Just add all your monthly expenses together and judge from that.
[16:28:52] <Bronzdragon> Hey, you got live and life mixed up.
[16:39:49] <aria> Well I wanna live as cheaply as possible, outside the city
[16:39:57] <aria> But I kinda need to pay for 2 people
[17:01:13] <nine> Bronzdragon: I always get them mixed up.
[17:01:45] <Bronzdragon> I, too, do that.
[17:01:54] <Bronzdragon> As well as mixing up too and to, and then and than.
[17:03:05] <nine> ... then and than don't sound the same and are used in distinctly different situations.
[17:03:15] <nine> Live and life sound the same in some cases.
[17:03:26] <nine> And living off is correct btw. So fuck you.
[17:03:27] <Robobuntoo> ...
[17:03:37] <Bronzdragon> ... I was empathising!
[17:03:42] <aria> ..
[17:03:51] <aria> Live and life sound the same sometimes?
[17:03:51] <nine> You were accusing me of fucking up!
[17:03:52] <Robobuntoo> ...
[17:03:53] <aria> When?
[17:03:57] <nine> Shoving blame unto my shoulders!
[17:04:02] <nine> Life and going live.
[17:04:16] <aria> One is with an f
[17:04:20] <aria> the other with a v
[17:04:36] <Bronzdragon> Well, live has the i pronounced like an e.
[17:05:08] <nine> Yes aria, astute observation.
[17:05:32] <nine> One is indeed spelled with an 'f' and the other with a 'v'. This does not change the fact that they are pronounced the same way.
[17:05:41] <Bronzdragon> They aren't
[17:05:45] <aria> No they're not
[17:05:50] <aria> One in pronounced with an f

[17:07:14] <nine> IPA FOR LIFE: /laɪv/
[17:07:33] <nine> IPA FOR LIVE: /laɪv/
[17:08:03] <Bronzdragon> See, that's the verb "live"
[17:08:21] <nine> No.
[17:08:28] <Bronzdragon> Wait, sorry, I mean adjective, live, which is differently pronounced from the verb
[17:08:30] <nine> You fucking linked the pronounciation for the verb live.
[17:08:31] <Robobuntoo> ...
[17:08:37] <aria> What's your source for that?
[17:08:37] <Bronzdragon> (I got the two worsd mixed up)
[17:08:38] <nine> Yes, and I SAID GOING LIVE.
[17:08:42] <nine> I.e. NOT THE VERB.
[17:08:46] <nine> Lrn2read.
[17:08:59] <Bronzdragon> "Where you live"
[17:09:15] <Bronzdragon> Which is pronounced differently from life (and live).
[17:09:33] <nine> "Were you live?" is different from "Where you live".
[17:09:33] <Bronzdragon> You don't say "I will now go and /laIv/ here".
[17:09:39] <nine> I'm talking about the former case.
[17:09:43] <nine> The adjective case.
[17:09:43] <aria> But "performing live" is also different from "I will create life"
[17:09:59] <nine> < Bronzdragon> You don't say "I will now go and /laIv/ here".
[17:10:03] <nine> JESUS FUCK, NO YOU DON'T.
[17:10:04] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[17:10:10] <Bronzdragon> Exactly.
[17:11:54] -!- derpman69 [derpman69!~derpman69@hide-99D89EA2.dr02.roch.ny.frontiernet.net] has joined #geeknights
[17:12:08] <derpman69> It's getting freaky in here.
[17:12:29] <Bronzdragon> hay derpman... 69?
[17:12:55] <nine> Bronzdragon: Do you agree that live, as an adjective, sounds the same as life?
[17:13:10] <Bronzdragon> Yes.
[17:13:12] <nine> Unlike how then and then NEVER sound the same and are used in trivially remembered cases?
[17:13:19] <nine> Good, then STFU.
[17:13:55] <Bronzdragon> Additonaly, when you used living correctly, you said "let's" instead of "lets".
[17:14:25] <aria> Live and life still never sound the same
[17:14:31] <aria> Then and than are closer
[17:14:31] <derpman69> They sound close but not the same.
[17:14:55] <nine> :¬|
[17:15:08] <nine> aria, go to school.
[17:15:36] <nine> "When you used living correctly" Wut?
[17:16:11] <Bronzdragon> I ommited quotationmarks around living, because I thought it would be more clear in this context
[17:16:35] <Bronzdragon> I was talking about when you said " But living small let's you go a long way with little money."
[17:16:59] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[17:17:02] <nine> JESUS FUCK MAN.
[17:17:03] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[17:17:13] <Bronzdragon> I'm not arguing that.
[17:17:23] <nine> I don't believe you.
[17:17:32] <nine> You're just digging farther now.
[17:17:32] <Bronzdragon> I'm currently arguing your use of "let's", which is wrong.
[17:17:45] <Bronzdragon> ... "Farther".
[17:17:56] <Bronzdragon> Not sure if that's intentional... I'll let it slide.
[17:18:13] <aria> But the adjective from of live doesn't like life...
[17:18:23] <derpman69> Fuck.
[17:18:24] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[17:18:34] <Bronzdragon> Good time to join, derpman.
[17:18:37] <nine> What in your mind is wrong about 'farther'?
[17:18:48] <nine> Aria, it does.
[17:18:54] <nine> It has the same fucking IPA for crying out luod.
[17:18:55] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[17:18:56] <nine> loud*
[17:19:02] <aria> It also doesn't sound the same
[17:19:03] <derpman69> Don't mind me, playing with this shitty bot.
[17:19:05] <Bronzdragon> It's not further, which is the word you were thinking of.
[17:19:06] <derpman69> Ubuntu.
[17:19:07] <Robobuntoo> oo-BOON-too!
[17:19:13] <nine> Aria, learn what fucking IPA is.
[17:19:14] <Robobuntoo> ...
[17:19:22] <nine> Bronzdragon: No, it's farther.
[17:19:27] <nine> I was not thinking of further.
[17:19:41] <nine> You're going farther down the road to utter nonsense man.
[17:20:42] <aria> But the IPA you posted was wrong, and you didn't provide a source.
[17:20:46] <aria> http://en.wiktionary.org
[17:20:53] <aria> "lIv"
[17:21:00] <nine> That's the VERB YOU FUCKING TWAT.
[17:21:01] <Robobuntoo> ...
[17:21:35] <nine> Yes, it is indeed [liv] when used as a verb.
[17:21:38] <nine> I was talking about the ADJECTIVE.
[17:22:00] <nine> Whose IPA is /laɪv/
[17:22:18] <Bronzdragon> http://en.wiktionary.org
[17:22:22] <nine> Go read fucking etymology 2 on wiktionary.
[17:22:22] <Robobuntoo> ...
[17:22:25] <Bronzdragon> http://en.wiktionary.org
[17:22:39] <Bronzdragon> /laIv/ vs /laIf/
[17:22:56] <Bronzdragon> Wiktionary does make a distinction.
[17:23:10] <nine> Wiktionary does.
[17:31:11] <derpman69> 6 IPAs.
[17:31:58] <nine> Six IPAs?
[17:32:09] <nine> Does the bot still do 6 things?
[17:32:22] <nine> I can't find 10 IPAs.
[17:32:23] <derpman69> What a shitty bot.
[17:32:23] <Robobuntoo> You can't find ten IPAs!
[17:32:23] <aria> 6 Geodudes or something else?
[17:32:24] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[17:32:24] <Robobuntoo> 6 geodudes, can't lose!
[17:32:29] <Bronzdragon> Bot broke

[17:33:31] <nine> Seems it only responds to geodudes now.
[17:33:50] <nine> 16 geodudes.
[17:33:51] <Robobuntoo> 6 geodudes, can't lose!
[17:33:58] <nine> Bot so borked.

[17:34:25] <nine> Really.

[18:38:46] <aria> Does anyone know a good keyboard that has a meta key?
[18:39:00] <aria> Actually, I want as many modifiers as possible
[18:39:21] <aria> Does anyone know a keyboard with a bunch of keys? Proper keys, not those tiny weird looking custom keys
[18:39:27] <aria> Just a bunch of extra keys
[18:39:34] <aria> And not having the Windows logo on it is a plus
[18:39:45] <aria> half a plus is having the newer windows logo, the one that isn't a flag
[18:43:27] <aria> http://www.thinkgeek.com
[18:43:57] <Bronzdragon> Those earbugs look... well, cheap
[18:44:18] <aria> Well I mean..
[18:44:30] <aria> They are MLP branded earbuds
[18:44:35] <aria> What did you expect?
[18:44:58] <Bronzdragon> A less than $18 dollar pricetag.
[18:45:21] <aria> They'll be $1 at walmart
[18:45:29] <Bronzdragon> Exactly
[18:45:30] <aria> Thinkgeek just knows they can get away with a preimum
[18:45:40] <Bronzdragon> If it was just the rubber thingie and a bottle of glue...
[18:45:46] <Bronzdragon> I'd play 20 bucks for that =P
[18:58:36] <nine> < aria> Does anyone know a good keyboard that has a meta key?
[18:58:42] <nine> That's pretty much every standard keyboard.
[18:59:58] <aria> nah, usually it's a "windows key"
[19:08:49] <nine> Which is the meta key.
[19:09:47] <aria> Sure, but differnet icon
[19:09:49] <Bronzdragon> Actually, there is a difference
[19:11:18] <nine> Keycode difference is the only actual difference, if that's the case.
[19:12:51] <nine> So Bronzdragon. What's the keycode for meta?
[19:15:07] <aria> I want this keyboard http://xahlee.info

[19:58:01] <Bronzdragon> Hai Apsup.
[20:00:07] <Apsup> Heya. My group started it's journey to hell today.
[20:01:47] <Bronzdragon> fun!
[20:02:42] <Bronzdragon> Wait, are they actually going to hell?
[20:02:48] <Apsup> Yes.
[20:02:50] <Bronzdragon> Or is the game just gonna suck for them?
[20:03:48] <Apsup> It won't be the classical catholic hell, but it's hell. It's the palce where dead souls go and where the god of the death works.
[20:04:02] <Bronzdragon> I see, so it's the underworld
[20:04:16] <Bronzdragon> They get punished in hell.
[20:04:33] <Bronzdragon> i'm pretty sure (though not 100%) that hell means punishment, while underworld is a more generic term
[20:04:47] <Apsup> Well we call it hell.
[20:05:18] <Apsup> Occasionally using other terms that I don't have direct translations for. Underworld works too.
[20:05:20] <Bronzdragon> Fair enough.
[20:06:06] <Apsup> Heck half of the time the god of dead is called Satan, even when he has proper in game name.
[20:06:20] <Apsup> Familiar proper nouns are familiar.
[20:07:07] <Bronzdragon> Fair enough.

[20:18:48] <aria> New game
[20:18:52] <aria> possibly a movie tie in
[20:19:04] <aria> So new movie is probable
[20:19:41] <aria> Also, that trailer might give you some idea of what the movie is like
[20:26:03] <Bronzdragon> Well, it's downloadable..
[20:26:10] <Bronzdragon> So this might be a "
[20:26:23] <Bronzdragon> Well, let's see how it does" sort of deal
[20:26:43] <aria> They're testing with a video game?
[20:27:57] <Bronzdragon> yes, if there's any interest amont non-adult groups
[20:28:52] <aria> Then that video game which requires a credit card
[20:29:05] <aria> and yknow, is a turtles game
[20:29:14] <aria> is probably a pretty bad measurement
[20:29:32] <aria> Perhaps if they use the new cartoon to advertise it
[20:32:17] <aria> This is pretty cool http://youtu.be
[20:32:20] <aria> Skip a bit in
[20:33:27] <Bronzdragon> I've seen that as a gif
[20:33:38] <Bronzdragon> On reddit with him dodging a downvote, and giving an upvote.
[20:34:34] <aria> I like that.
[20:41:43] <aria> The theme from Skycrawlers is really good
[20:42:01] <aria> My brother is watching it ATM, so Im hearing the music out of context

[20:49:10] <Cybylt> Hello
[20:49:13] <spacejam> hey
[20:49:15] <spacejam> what's up here?
[20:49:23] <aria> Yey for tall boyfriends https://pbs.twimg.com
[20:49:25] <Bronzdragon> Apsup sent his players to hell.
[20:49:36] <Bronzdragon> X3
[20:49:43] <Bronzdragon> Y'know what? accurate.
[20:56:33] <Bronzdragon> http://i.qkme.me
[21:13:13] <GauntletWizard> good morning, chaps
[21:15:52] <Bronzdragon> 'ello
[22:19:04] <GauntletWizard> I'm impressed by how quickly science has become a religion
[22:19:53] <Bronzdragon> ... how do you mean?
[22:19:54] <GauntletWizard> with Carl Sagan and Neil DeGrasse Tyson as it's prophets
[22:20:05] <Bronzdragon> Oh, I see.
[22:20:15] <Bronzdragon> yeah, I /guess/.
[22:20:22] <GauntletWizard> The surprising number of people who simply quote them, even when they are wrong/underinformed
[22:20:43] <GauntletWizard> the amount of bullshit that gets strewn about because one notable scientist reported it
[22:20:44] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[22:20:48] <Bronzdragon> Wait, who's wrongunderinformed in this scenario?
[22:20:50] <GauntletWizard> "We're running out of helium!"
[22:21:04] <Bronzdragon> Oh yeah, I saw something about it.
[22:21:11] <Bronzdragon> Sounded weird to me, didn't know what to make of it
[22:21:27] <Bronzdragon> thought 'eh well, whatever's the story behind that, it'll work itself out'.
[22:21:51] <GauntletWizard> We had a pork-belly project in the 30s to maintain a strategic helium reserve
[22:22:08] <GauntletWizard> they finally got rid of it in the 90s, and for 10 years, that made helium dirt-cheap
[22:22:09] <Robobuntoo> You can't for ten years!
[22:22:24] <GauntletWizard> now it's finally equallizing, and people are predicting doom
[22:22:56] <GauntletWizard> meanwhile, it's literally thrown away as a by-product of natural gas production, in ~ the same quantity as we consume yearly
[22:23:10] <GauntletWizard> (At the low prices)
[22:23:31] <Bronzdragon> Because it's too expensive to repackage and sell?
[22:23:43] <GauntletWizard> because it's not worth it to repackage and sell
[22:23:54] <Bronzdragon> Taht's what I said!
[22:26:45] <GauntletWizard> there's a subtle difference in connotation:
[22:27:03] <GauntletWizard> "Not worth it" is now, but will be worth it when the price goes up
[22:27:09] <GauntletWizard> "too expensive" sounds final
[22:27:18] <Bronzdragon> ... but it's not.
[22:27:19] <GauntletWizard> (but yes, we're in agreement)
[22:27:55] <Bronzdragon> I think your arbitrary judgement that too expensive sounds final is silly. I, personally, feel that is in no way the case.
[22:28:07] <Bronzdragon> Also, are we losing helium to space?
[22:28:21] <spacejam> 
[22:29:36] <GauntletWizard> we are
[22:29:57] <GauntletWizard> and it's hard to filter out of the atmosphere
[22:30:39] <Bronzdragon> Why is it not just sitting still on top of the rest of the atmosphere?
[22:30:49] <Bronzdragon> It's still subject to gravity, right?
[22:40:44] <nine> It is.
[22:40:48] <nine> It's too light though.
[22:41:36] <GauntletWizard> yes, it has, believe it or not, escape velocity
[22:42:13] <GauntletWizard> It rises to the top of the atmosphere due to it's density, and then has enough residual heat that it is able to escape
