[00:03:18] <Churba> Wat
[00:03:32] <Churba> I think I accidentally started an educational pun thread about logical fallacies on reddit
[00:14:02] <nine> What.
[00:14:08] <nine> WHY THE FUCK YOU SAY THAT HERE?
[00:14:13] <nine> DID SKYPE CRASH?

[01:02:32] <Churba> Ironically, the reason I didn't respond for a little bit is because I was watching some of the Terminator TV series
[01:04:24] <Bronz> The plot thickens!
[01:04:55] <Bronz> 45 minutes ago, Domaro said he'd be here shortly...
[01:05:41] <Churba> Good lord
[01:05:53] <Bronz> Indeed.

[02:29:29] <Churba> Oh fucking hell
[02:29:42] <Churba> Pax Australia Facebook page, there's some dude asking if he needs to buy tickets to attend
[02:30:39] <Churba> Then asking if he needs tickets to attend any particular parts of the event (clearly having assumed that he could just walk in free), and when he was told that a ticket gets you in everywhere, but they're sold out, he starts calling them crazy for selling limited amounts of tickets to an event
[02:30:48] <Churba> WTF bro
[02:31:44] <Churba> This isn't the fucking local market, mate. You don't just have people stream in and out as they please, gandering at the knick-knacks before they fuck off, having seen everything in an hour or two.

[03:04:19] <Churba> FIFA
[03:06:22] <Apsup> I've seen at least one, brobably multiple videos full of fifa bugging out.
[03:15:14] <Churba> Fifa's one of the best games to watch bugging out like that
[03:16:14] <Churba> because it's something so simple - a bunch of dudes kicking a ball around a field - and something we're so familiar with (motion of the human body), So any glitch immediately becomes more impactful with that subversion of the entirely familiar
[03:16:28] <Apsup> It combines pshysics and ai into something beatiful when one or both of them fail.

[15:23:42] <ruffas> greetings future people
[15:23:53] <ruffas> and perhaps pasters
[15:24:04] <Bronzdragon> HEY RUFFAS
[15:24:22] <Aria> Hello Ruffas
[15:24:29] <Aria> I will move an hour into the future tonight
[15:24:49] <ruffas> oh?
[15:24:52] <Bronzdragon> *past
[15:24:59] <ruffas> your daylight savings thing?
[15:25:18] <Aria> Walter says Im moving to the past
[15:26:05] <ruffas> i assume he knows better?
[15:26:06] <Bronzdragon> He's moving to Ireland
[15:26:11] <Bronzdragon> Ireland is west
[15:26:15] <Bronzdragon> West is past.
[15:26:22] <Bronzdragon> My logic is sound.
[15:26:57] <ruffas> that does follow
[15:27:03] <ruffas> what you doing in the eire?
[15:27:27] <Aria> Tech support
[15:27:39] <Aria> To people in Norway
[15:27:45] <Aria> because that's apperantly done in Ireland.
[15:27:50] <Aria> (In Norwegian)
[15:28:50] <ruffas> wait, what?
[15:29:05] <Bronzdragon> He works for IBM
[15:29:05] <ruffas> so you're moving to ireland
[15:29:13] <ruffas> to do tech support for norwegians
[15:29:19] <ruffas> when did IBM happen?
[15:29:56] <Aria> Tomorrow
[15:30:29] <Aria> They don't have a office in Oslo
[15:30:31] <ruffas> so this is new then
[15:30:34] <Aria> they do in Dublin, I'm going to Dublin
[15:30:42] <Aria> Yes, quite
[15:30:58] <Aria> (I don't want to be in a non-city)
[15:31:11] <ruffas> grats
[15:36:47] <Aria> Thank you. Not in Ireland yet though
[15:36:57] <Aria> Also not sure how to Ireland
[15:37:02] <Aria> or how to Irish
[15:37:24] <Aria> The things I hear about public transport (as in, looking at the map) are not super promosing
[15:37:34] <ruffas> drink :P
[15:38:21] <ruffas> you did get a job, and that's grats worthy
[16:03:09] <Aria> Ruffas
[16:03:26] <Aria> Bronz says Austin Martin cars are not outragously priced and the metal is just expensive
[16:03:39] <ruffas> ...
[16:03:42] <Bronzdragon> That is called selective paraphrasing
[16:03:48] <Bronzdragon> Or taking things out of context
[16:03:54] <Aria> Is this true? Is the price/car ratio compareable to a Toyota?
[16:03:58] <Bronzdragon> I said there are people that can afford Austin Martin cards
[16:04:01] <Aria> Please add context.
[16:04:15] <Bronzdragon> And that for cheap cars, metal is a significant investment
[16:04:28] <Aria> You did say that.
[16:04:29] <Bronzdragon> And making a cheap car look like an Austin Martin would cost more
[16:04:33] <Bronzdragon> Because the metal isn't cheap
[16:06:03] -!- Neito has quit [Ping timeout]
[16:06:10] <ruffas> okay...
[16:36:21] <Aria> So... he's wrong then?
[16:36:32] <ruffas> i have no idea
[16:36:55] <Aria> =(
[16:37:07] <ruffas> i think a big part of the price is the badge
[16:37:26] <ruffas> you're buying an AUSTIN, not some shitty fiat
[17:15:52] <Bronzdragon> Shitty fiat is best fiat

[17:58:06] <Churba> An Austin
[17:58:54] <Churba> Do you mean an Austin, or an Aston Martin?
[17:59:19] <Churba> The former might be a bit of work
[17:59:30] <Churba> Old british cars have a bit of a reputation, and it's not undeserved
[17:59:40] <Churba> My first car was an Austin, sort of.
[18:01:08] <Churba> An Electric blue Leyland Mini 1275-LS
[18:01:24] <Churba> Beyond wonderful of a car, but fuck me it was a lot of work
[18:03:46] <Churba> And not very safe. Old man Issigonis had the comment of "I don't design my cars to crash. I give them good steering, good brakes, so if it crashes it's your fault"
[18:04:19] <Churba> Great fun, though. That modified 1275 racing engine was WAY too powerful for that tiny little fuckin' car.

[18:55:58] <Bronzdragon> Churba
[18:56:05] <Bronzdragon> You said "Sort of" an Austin"
[18:56:24] <Bronzdragon> Aston Martin, I mean
[18:56:27] <Bronzdragon> Shush, but do tell
[18:57:03] <Aria> He actually did say Austin
[18:58:14] <Churba> Well, Not all Minis were made by Austin, but they were all the same Austin design, within reason.
[19:00:38] <Churba> My Mini was made by an arm of the same company that owned Austin motors, an Australian company called Leyland, or British Motoring Corporation Australia.
[19:01:02] <Churba> It was - well, when it was built - a slightly modified version of the original mini design, but with a giant fucking engine in it
[19:01:20] <Churba> And Aston makes a small cheap car too, called the Aston Martin Cygnet.
[19:01:45] <Churba> It's alright. Bit expensive, though. You should buy something else.
[19:03:40] <Bronzdragon> I'm not sure if we'll be owning a car in Ireland
[19:03:46] <Bronzdragon> We are in the capital, after all
[19:03:54] <Churba> Dublin?
[19:04:07] <Bronzdragon> That is still the capital, indeed.
[19:04:29] <Churba> I'd advise getting your licence, and access to something small you can run about in or on
[19:05:01] <Churba> English public transport in the north is excellent, and I didn't have many places to go, I still owned a motorbike to get around.
[19:07:44] <Churba> It's not urgent, but consider it.
[19:09:48] <Aria> EU drivers lisence no good?
[19:09:56] <Aria> I know they have opposite roads and such
[19:10:22] <Bronzdragon> They are, usually
[19:10:27] <Bronzdragon> I can drive in Ireland

[20:55:57] <ruffas> i'm fighting everyone in Civ again
[20:56:06] <ruffas> this seems to be a recurring pattern
[20:56:17] <Bronzdragon> Maybe you're coming on too strong?
[20:56:31] <ruffas> it's quite possible
[21:00:55] <ruffas> but someone always tries to fuck with me
[21:01:03] <ruffas> and i have to get my war on
[21:01:25] <ruffas> and then after the dust settles, i've got all these sticks just itching for someone to point at
[21:02:18] <Bronzdragon> Wait, will this someone point at the sticks?

[21:13:34] <Bronzdragon> So, how have you advanced stick technology?
[21:13:41] <Bronzdragon> Have you created pointier sticks yet?
[21:23:51] <ruffas> my sticks are pretty damn pointy
[21:29:16] <Bronzdragon> How long are your sticks?
[21:29:20] <Bronzdragon> Can they point a long way?
[21:29:38] <ruffas> most of them go 3 hexes
[21:29:50] <Bronzdragon> Oh my.

[23:08:15] <Churba> OH JESUS I EXIST AGAIN
[23:08:18] <Churba> WHYYYYYY
[23:08:34] <Churba> Anyway, yeah, if you're in dublin, you can drive on an EU licence.
[23:08:55] <Bronzdragon> Good.
[23:09:02] <Bronzdragon> Wait, you're Jesus?
[23:09:07] <Churba> Oooor you can just drive around without the appropriate licence and simply avoid being caught, like nobody I know at all ever did when they were riding their motorbike around england
[23:09:08] <Bronzdragon> Y'know... not that surprised, to be honest
[23:09:30] <Churba> Jesus? Nah. I'm Jack Harkness.
[23:09:53] <Bronzdragon> Just a pretty face, eh?
[23:10:30] <Churba> Not even that much, some might say
[23:12:33] <Churba> Been playing some of the new tomb raider. It's not bad, pretty well made so far, even though it's almost psychotically determined to beat the shit out of Lara at every opportunity
[23:13:21] <Churba> She's also carrying around a handicam that doesn't show up on her model, and she just puts behind her back and it dissappears, but she doesn't have a bag.
[23:13:38] <Churba> So I guess she's just stuffing it up her ass or something.
[23:13:43] <Bronzdragon> At one point, she gets a bow, and then "puts it in her bag"
[23:13:52] <Bronzdragon> It's... she's pretty good
[23:14:12] <Bronzdragon> Also, I'm heavily disappointed that she picks up 2 guns mid-way through the game, shoots a guy, then throws one away
[23:14:27] <Bronzdragon> Then, at the... end...
[23:14:36] <Bronzdragon> She ends up with 2 guns, and then credit roll, right?
[23:14:49] <Bronzdragon> But when you continue to search for collectables, she only has one gun again!
[23:17:42] <Churba> Yeah, that's a bit dodgy
[23:18:27] <Bronzdragon> It's the perfect oppertunity to upgrade lara's gun.
[23:18:38] <Bronzdragon> Most disapointing part of that game.
[23:23:08] <Churba> I seem to be picking up most of the collectables before I leave an area, now

[23:35:50] <Bronzdragon> Do you need to get up tomorrow?

[23:39:52] <Apsup> Games of video it is then.
[23:42:05] <Apsup> Saw a forum thread titled "Help! My son wants to kill me and I can't stop him" I was worried for a moment until I rememberd that I'm looking at Crusader Kings 2'a forums.
[23:43:39] <Bronzdragon> ...
[23:45:30] <Churba> Ah, CK2
[23:45:43] <Churba> Asnabel is super into CK2
[23:46:07] <Churba> Dude has more hours in that game than I've spent wanking, and let me tell you, that's no small amount of time
[23:46:48] <Bronzdragon> Which makes me wonder... does he pull double duty?
[23:47:08] <Apsup> I play it occasionally. I've tried to create the Kingdom of Finland, but my minions are too lazy to fabricate me some calms so I can rightfully take the lands.
[23:51:07] <Bronzdragon> Who would wanna play as the Finnish anywya
[23:51:10] <Bronzdragon> they're boring.
