[00:00:22] <Apsup> ...
[00:00:27] <yoshokatana> I…I don't know
[00:00:36] <Apsup> Dice love you tonight.
[00:00:42] <yoshokatana> I guess, heh
[00:00:52] <Apsup> 4 - 0 no doubling now.
[00:00:57] <yoshokatana> you had really good positioning for bearing off though
[00:04:33] <yoshokatana> oh damn, you might have blocked me
[00:07:36] <Apsup> God damn your luck. Or your elite haxor skillz.
[00:07:48] <yoshokatana> you're gonna win this one, I'm sure
[00:09:15] <yoshokatana> blerg, food's at the door
[00:13:57] <yoshokatana> whaaaa?
[00:15:46] <yoshokatana> gg, that was disappointingly quick
[00:15:48] <yoshokatana> brb food
[00:15:51] <Apsup> 5 - 0
[00:17:23] <yoshokatana> mhmm
[00:17:47] <yoshokatana> I feel like high-level gameplay is effectively random, since there are only a few useful strategies
[00:19:23] <Apsup> Well probably in high-level play yes. I think the most interesting place in the game is when to try to double. Finding that perfect spot where you are pretty sure of your own wictory, but not too much ahead that oppnet instantly gives up.
[00:20:00] <yoshokatana> mhmm
[00:21:07] <Apsup> Although I made quite a lot of clear mistakes, so there definitely is a skill element in the game. Lack of undo button on that didn't help. Many times I realized how bad a move was only after I had madeit.
[00:21:42] <yoshokatana> ah

[08:12:35] aria is now known as Bronz
[08:12:50] <Bronz> Hey, it's me!'
[08:13:03] <Bronz> Keyboards is hard =(
[08:13:19] <woodchuck> How hard?
[08:13:28] <Bronz> It has an ø key
[08:15:21] <Bronz> So, what's up with woodchuck?
[08:16:02] <woodchuck> not much; not studying.
[08:16:40] <woodchuck> I should get a job to fill up my time but then I would have to sleep at normal times.
[08:17:23] <Bronz> Oh god, tell me about it!
[08:17:31] <Bronz> I woke up at six today
[08:17:34] <Bronz> AM...
[08:17:36] <Bronz> UUUUUGH
[08:17:55] <woodchuck> It will be 6am for me in 2 hours
[08:19:12] <Bronz> You remind me of me from a week ago
[08:19:53] -!- Peka has quit [Ping timeout]
[08:20:26] <woodchuck> Is there a medical disease for not wanting to sleep at night?
[08:20:53] <Bronz> Yes, Insomnia
[08:21:08] <Bronz> I'm sure it has some sort of name, but the problem is lamps
[08:21:28] <Bronz> See, there's been studies, and the average human day is 25 hours.
[08:21:33] <woodchuck> No, I do sleep; roughly 6-11am.
[08:21:54] <Bronz> So left alone, the sleep will drift further and further into the night, until you come out the other end.
[08:22:15] <Bronz> Back in the day, the sun went under, and this normally makes us tired.
[08:22:21] <Bronz> But lamps! Damn them!
[08:23:03] <woodchuck> maybe...
[08:23:11] <Bronz> Maybe?
[08:23:24] <woodchuck> Last week I never saw the sun.
[08:23:45] <Bronz> I do not wish to prescribe your life to you, but...
[08:24:19] <woodchuck> I know I have problems...but
[08:24:37] <woodchuck> Like a sane person I choose to not deal with them.
[08:25:51] <Bronz> Hey, I'm wiht you!
[08:34:13] <woodchuck> Think how har it will be in space.
[08:34:24] <Bronz> How har?
[08:34:39] <woodchuck> no cle.
[08:35:56] <Bronz> I assume you meant clue'
[08:36:15] <Bronz> You canæt just ommit letters like that, it becomes awefully hard for me to read.
[08:36:26] <Bronz> *Can't
[08:36:41] -!- Peka [Peka!anas@6DB26DE7:CA2818E:C2D07680:IP] has joined #geeknights
[08:36:59] <woodchuck> it is a typo; me bad.
[08:37:17] <Bronz> I see.
[08:37:32] <Bronz> I'm hungry, but it's not lunch time yet.
[08:38:52] <woodchuck> are you mountain time or central time?
[08:39:46] <Bronz> hahaha, no
[08:39:53] <Bronz> I'm in Ireland
[08:40:06] <Bronz> Ohhhhh, this computer clock is off!
[08:40:10] <Bronz> It's not even 10 yet!
[08:40:11] <Robobuntoo> You can't even ten yets!
[08:40:15] <woodchuck> I tought you were around Texas because of your server.
[08:40:28] <Bronz> My 'server'?
[08:40:48] <Bronz> I see
[08:41:03] <Bronz> I think it's because this IRC network doesn't have European servers
[08:41:11] <Bronz> Or maybe you get connected to random servers
[08:41:37] <woodchuck> I could be in the UK.
[08:42:59] <Bronz> Could be
[08:43:33] <Bronz> Though you did mention you were 'coming up on' 6 AM, right_
[08:43:40] <Bronz> So you have to be at least 4 timezones south of me.
[08:43:54] <Bronz> NY is 5.
[08:44:20] <woodchuck> Nope; FL is 5 too.
[08:46:22] <Bronz> Well, the entire east coast is
[08:46:34] <Bronz> I was just giving a global context
[08:46:51] <Bronz> You could be in Puerto Rico, or Hawaii, right?
[08:47:00] <Bronz> (Or, y'know, Florida)
[08:48:29] <woodchuck> Hawaii is 11(haven't lived ther for 5 years) but they don't do the daylight savings thing.
[08:48:52] <woodchuck> On freenod I am in Italy.
[08:49:51] <Bronz> Right, I forgot which side Hawaii is on.
[08:50:17] <Bronz> (The Russian/comunist side)
[08:50:38] <Bronz> Do you enjoy being Italian?
[08:51:17] <woodchuck> The pizza isn't everything; and arduinios cast more; VAT is horrible.
[08:51:44] <Bronz> I could eat some cold pizza...
[08:51:50] <Bronz> We do have some.
[08:53:49] <woodchuck> why do Europeans tip shitty; they tip in Europe too?
[08:53:50] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[08:54:11] <Bronz> I didn't know what to tip my taxi driver, so I didn't tip
[08:54:25] <Bronz> Though because our minimum wage is, y'know, sane...
[08:54:32] <Bronz> We don't need tips to make a living
[08:54:48] <Bronz> So a tip is what it's supposed to be, an extra when the patron thinks you did an above average job
[08:55:25] <woodchuck> minimum wages are about half that for servers.
[08:56:30] <Bronz> Indeed, because they expect to get tips
[08:56:46] <Bronz> Here, tips are sort of included in the bill already, if you want to look at it that way.
[08:57:54] <woodchuck> Lots of places are adding the 18% auto tip.
[08:58:56] <Bronz> yeah, because tips are not rewards in America, they're a way of punishing people by denying them food
[08:58:59] <Bronz> (Ironically)
[09:01:20] <woodchuck> I went to a burger joint; walked up got my food; it is fancer than McD; but still fast food.
[09:01:48] <Bronz> You usually don't tip fastfood, right?
[09:01:55] <woodchuck> 18% they spent 45sec talking to me crazy.
[09:02:30] <Bronz> They get paid by the word?
[09:02:43] <woodchuck> No you don't; I am never going back; my roomate lost his mind.
[09:03:20] <Bronz> But the burger was good, right?
[09:04:27] <Bronz> ... email sound
[09:04:29] <Bronz> But no email
[09:05:27] <woodchuck> I was average; better than fast food; but not steak and shack/dennys
[09:06:14] <Bronz> And the price was alright_
[09:07:08] <woodchuck> nope; $21 for burger, frys, shack: is that expensive in your woods?
[09:07:42] <Cybylt> Why are you paying more than $9 for that?
[09:07:44] <Bronz> Hang on, converting that into SANE METRIC currency
[09:07:57] <Cybylt> or maybe $12-$14 at a nicer place
[09:08:07] <Bronz> =O that much_
[09:09:00] <Cybylt> http://2.bp.blogspot.com
[09:09:02] <Bronz> Micky-D has a cheeseburger for 1 dollar 30 here.
[09:09:08] <Cybylt> That's the only acceptable menu for a fast food place
[09:09:36] <Bronz> Yes, these prices are more sane.
[09:10:05] <Cybylt> I was also talking about it's simplicity
[09:10:07] <woodchuck> Pirces were a little higher last time i was in CA for me.
[09:10:08] <Cybylt> its*
[09:10:14] <Cybylt> depends on area
[09:10:27] <Cybylt> I know around LA the price starts getting a bit of a hike
[09:10:57] <woodchuck> how much is a NYC burger?
[09:11:10] <Cybylt> but I was able to get 2 double doubles, a three by thee, three orders of fries and drinks for just over $15
[09:11:34] <woodchuck> 5-7 for flordia.
[09:11:38] <Cybylt> I am not familiar with this place
[09:12:15] <Cybylt> but since I've been in california just about my whole life I am rather bias towards In & Out
[09:12:20] <Bronz> Btw, 'sup Cybylt?
[09:12:23] <woodchuck> Bronz is; if they come back.
[09:12:36] <Cybylt> Reading Steel Ball Run and playing Monster Hunter
[09:13:00] <Bronz> So same 'ol same 'ol?
[09:13:05] <woodchuck> INnOUT is good; I loved it when I lived there.
[09:13:21] <Cybylt> I love the ridiculously specific stands so much, JoJo's beats all shonen by not having a universal power metric but instead require a lot of creativity
[09:13:53] <woodchuck> You still have Pollo Loco?
[09:13:56] <Cybylt> One guy had the power to stop rain, that was the entirety of it, to hold it in place
[09:14:06] <Cybylt> we do, but I don't know why people go there
[09:14:14] <Cybylt> the meat is dry and the tortillas suck
[09:14:36] <Cybylt> Albertos and all of its knockoffs have taken over as the goto mexican fast food establishment
[09:15:21] <Cybylt> http://s3-media4.ak.yelpcdn.com
[09:15:31] <woodchuck> Need to check out this Alberts next time in the area.
[09:15:31] <Cybylt> they have the "Super Carne Asada Fries"
[09:15:46] <Cybylt> meat and cheese and fries with guacamole
[09:15:57] <woodchuck> that vomit look great.
[09:16:09] <Cybylt> each restaraunt is mildly different as well
[09:16:11] <Cybylt> http://image2.dishtip.com
[09:16:23] <Bronz> 5/10 would eat same food again.
[09:16:24] <Robobuntoo> You can't 5 ten woulds!
[09:16:41] <Cybylt> like the one by my house has more traditional style cheeses and such instead of the orange cheddar-ish stuff
[09:16:52] <woodchuck> that is beter. 10
[09:17:07] <Cybylt> http://www.albertosweb.com
[09:17:11] <Cybylt> best mascot ever
[09:17:13] <Bronz> Cheddar gets a bad rap, but only because they make bad cheddar
[09:17:40] <Cybylt> I like the butteryness of the quesa fresca in mexican food
[09:17:57] <Cybylt> the cheddar gets nicely melty but it's not quite right
[09:18:48] <Cybylt> I typically get the burritos, but ever since I moved I haven't gone to them as much
[09:18:52] <Cybylt> not when I have Primo
[09:19:37] <Cybylt> it's a little mexican grocer and deli that was built from an old drive through place, so they put up a counter at the old drive through window and sell food there, stuff like 50 cent street tacos
[09:19:52] <Cybylt> also they get awesome soda like Leninade
[09:20:12] <Cybylt> http://www.realsoda.net
[09:20:13] <Bronz> Leninade?
[09:20:18] <Bronz> Sounds communistic
[09:20:21] <Cybylt> it's pink lemonade soda
[09:20:26] <Bronz> =0
[09:20:32] <Bronz> I need some now
[09:21:12] <Cybylt> the slogan is "Get hammered and sickled"
[09:22:13] <Cybylt> I need to go back to san diego too, I want more sarsaparilla
[09:22:20] <Cybylt> it is the best form of root beer
[09:22:36] <Cybylt> birch beer was okay
[09:22:45] <Cybylt> ginger beer was too bitter
[09:23:39] <Cybylt> and these include the older styles with the pull tab cap and you have to hold it upside down and spin it a bit because there isn't something in there to keep it completely mixed
[09:24:02] <woodchuck> I only do the boot beer; cream soda is good too; the girls like.
[09:24:24] <Cybylt> http://www.sanza.co.uk
[09:24:48] <Bronz> You guys! Why don't we have awesome sodas
[09:24:50] <Cybylt> Sarsaparilla is like root beer but creamier, birch beer is like root beer but more... "minty" I guess is the word
[09:24:53] <Bronz> The best I can get here is stout beer
[09:25:00] <Bronz> (Which, granted, is pretty good)
[09:25:22] <woodchuck> that is real beer, not soda.
[09:25:43] <Cybylt> which we have as well, though I'm told ours isn't as good as any of europe's
[09:25:44] <Bronz> Our Cocacola only has one flavor
[09:25:47] <Bronz> 's not vanilla
[09:26:49] <Cybylt> your cocacola is better for having sugar and not corn syrup
[09:27:19] <Cybylt> after trying the kind they make in mexico, which is what they ship to the rest of the world, the american kind tastes like concentrate
[09:27:27] <Bronz> ... why would you put corn in soda?
[09:27:29] <woodchuck> Mexico is for that.
[09:27:39] <Bronz> Also, I think this sugar is from beets, not cane.
[09:27:40] <Cybylt> corn syrup
[09:27:53] <Bronz> Corn syrup is still corn
[09:28:02] <Bronz> But... more syrup-y
[09:28:06] <Cybylt> it's supposed to be artificial honey, basically, but it's not
[09:29:24] <woodchuck> we needed something to do with all the corn; we subsidized the making of corn syrup.
[09:29:27] <Cybylt> I might have to do this some time, I can get 24 bottles of sarsaparilla for $40
[09:29:42] <Cybylt> that's actually not a bad price, most glass bottle sodas are expensive
[09:30:00] <woodchuck> the soda companies use it beacuse it is cheaper; but only if it stays subsidized.
[09:31:35] <Bronz> So... why is it still subsidized?
[09:31:43] <Bronz> Why not subsidize cane sugar production?
[09:31:52] <woodchuck> To keep it cheap.
[09:32:08] <Bronz> Okay, why not subsidize both?
[09:32:37] <woodchuck> It makes more sence the the amount of money congress spens to have food not grown/spoil.
[09:32:47] <Cybylt> probably takes longer to farm the sugar cane and the syrup is coming from something they're already making over here
[09:33:11] <woodchuck> There arn't as many suger growers as the is corn.
[09:33:26] <Cybylt> and other businesses put a lot into mass corn farming for other uses
[09:33:57] <Cybylt> which I find odd, we put a lot into a plant that isn't even edible unless it soaks in lye
[09:34:23] <Cybylt> or is ground into near powder and boiled to make grits
[09:34:32] <Cybylt> which are damn tasty with sausage gravy
[09:34:39] <Bronz> Let's put it this way; the entire world, except for America uses sugar to sweeten. Probably because it's cheaper to grow sugar cane.
[09:34:53] <Bronz> So clearly, sugar cane is cheaper. It also tastes better.
[09:34:59] <Bronz> So... why subsidize corn?
[09:35:55] <Cybylt> because we have the best conditions for growing it en masse for all of its uses and exporting it to the rest of the world
[09:36:22] <Cybylt> its biggest use is as a starch in cooking
[09:36:42] <Cybylt> as well as livestock feed
[09:36:58] <woodchuck> the syrup is made after the starch.
[09:37:16] <woodchuck> http://www.youtube.com
[09:37:22] <Bronz> But America is really really big, and climate from different parts differs a lot.
[09:37:24] <woodchuck> bra controller.
[09:38:38] <Cybylt> not as much as others because our size is in the width of the continent from east to west, you change climate more as you go north/south
[09:38:56] <Bronz> True...
[09:39:10] <woodchuck> US has all climates.
[09:39:53] <Bronz> Exactly
[09:39:59] <Cybylt> yeah, but areas with similar climates are very large
[09:40:24] <Bronz> Surely you have a little patch of land for Sugar cane?
[09:40:52] <Cybylt> Probably, but not in the mass they want the sweetener in, and again goes back to the subsidies
[09:41:12] <Cybylt> corn growing areas - basically the whole midwest
[09:41:25] <Cybylt> areas where we can grow sugar cane, small areas of california and florida
[09:41:28] <woodchuck> we do; some is grown in Floida; there used to be some in Hawaii and Cuba(when we had it).
[09:41:43] <Bronz> Ok!
[09:42:32] <Cybylt> we probably get something from Puerto Rico and Costa Rica too, I don't know enough about east coast things to know for sure though
[09:42:54] <Cybylt> I probably should, but I don't
[09:43:36] <woodchuck> the US as awesome; we have sunner; boobs; and guns.
[09:44:26] <Bronz> You have sinners_
[09:44:32] <Bronz> Well, I suppose you do have Las Vegas
[09:44:40] <Cybylt> also some of the most vocal idiots around
[09:44:45] <Bronz> Also, I really dislike the position of this dash on this keyboard
[09:45:00] <Bronz> Dash and questionmark are swapped for some unknown reason
[09:45:08] <woodchuck> I ment summer, sory.
[09:46:07] <Cybylt> Well question marks are used more than dashes
[09:46:43] <Bronz> I do, but I find the questionmark easier to hit
[09:52:15] <Cybylt> Apparently Father's Day was invented in 1908, because... I don't know
[09:52:52] <Bronz> Probably by some father
[09:53:30] <Cybylt> a woman, actually
[09:53:44] <Cybylt> she just went around one day telling stores to put up father's day signs
[09:54:24] <Bronz> ... oh, really?
[09:54:29] <Cybylt> and then after WW1 advertising companies got in on it and used the returning troops as an excuse to bring it up again
[09:55:20] <Bronz> Because this keyboard is weird, I hit ' instead of <enter>, which gave me time to correct the underscore which was supposed to be a questionmark.
[09:55:40] <Bronz> also, this keyboard seems to not have square brackets...
[09:55:49] <Cybylt> [ ]
[09:56:01] <Bronz> Yes, those.

[09:56:45] <Cybylt> Fun
[10:00:22] <Bronz> I should really run by the store.
[10:00:31] <Bronz> I'll catch y'all later
