[06:26:18] <Bronz|work> Hello.
[06:39:17] <Demisedulous> After evening, Bronz|work
[06:55:28] <Bronz|work> Indeed.
[07:24:29] <Bronz|work> So, how do you do, Demisedulous.
[07:24:46] <Demisedulous> pretty alright
[07:26:45] <Bronz|work> Good, good.
[07:31:24] <Demisedulous> Playing dark souls 2 right now
[07:31:43] <Bronz|work> That's like, twice the Dark Souls 1!

[10:01:42] <Bronz|work> Holy crud, so many calls.
[10:03:41] <Apsup> Ringringringring
[10:03:46] <Apsup> bananaphone
[10:04:39] <Bronz|work> Anyway, I'm glad you chased them all away
[10:04:42] <Bronz|work> What are you upto?
[10:08:41] <Apsup> I'm upfrom bed, but not sure what I'm upto
[10:14:20] <Bronz|work> Probably a chair, I'd say.
[10:16:06] <Apsup> let's assume so for now.

[10:56:23] <Bronz|work> I'm pretty dang well, thanks Churba
[11:07:30] -!- Demisedulous has quit [Quit: Sleeping]
[11:16:47] <Apreche> Duck the Internet today. Should all stay in here and hide where it's safe.
[11:17:24] <Apreche> Fuck stupid autocorrect.
[11:20:03] <Apsup> I've said this before, I'm not too bothered.
[11:20:23] <Apsup> With the international lie day.
[11:20:57] <Apsup> Also, it's a good day to watch the newest episode of the Flash, featuring Mark Hamill.
[11:21:11] <Bronz|work> What if that's also an april's fool joke?
[11:21:21] <Bronz|work> Also, I liked the Google Maps pacman
[11:21:45] <Bronz|work> it's like, infinitely different number of maps pacman.
[11:32:03] <Churba> Have Pity - Ours ends in three hours, but we still have about 22 hours of bullshit ahead of us.
[11:33:41] <Churba> There was one good joke today, though
[11:33:56] <Churba> https://www.sexparty.org.au
[11:34:41] <Churba> Obvious fake, but at least it was somewhat funny.
[11:39:13] <Bronz|work> Indeed. I just find it funny that you have a sex party in Australia
[11:43:04] <Apsup> Mark Hamill is so good. But also so hammy.
[11:47:21] <Churba> I can at least promise you that /r/gunsoficarus is april fools free. Unlike many other subreddits which have become irritating.
[11:48:39] <Bronz|work> /r/aprilfools on the other hand...
[12:33:20] <Churba> I might have dug to deep for that pun on jalopnik, I think
[12:38:16] <Churba> On an article about Iran's control over a particular chokepoint between the red sea and the Persian gulf, I pointed out that I've traveled around the world, and while I don't speak the language, Djibouti don't need explaining.
[12:38:51] <Churba> Capcom have missed the point by announcing an Ace attourney game where all the characters are dogs, because I really want that fucking game.
[12:40:09] <Bronz|work> ... yeah.
[12:40:27] <Bronz|work> That's the worst april's fool joke where you go "But that's exactly what I want!"
[12:45:21] <Churba> also annoying - some manga scans groups release fake chapters on april first, which clogs up my reader with bullshit. Especially annoying for chapters I'm looking forward to.
[12:47:04] <Churba> The entire internet today, in one picture: - http://i.imgur.com
[12:51:25] <Apsup> You made me check my mangas. There was a new chapter of Nozaki-kun. An actual one, not a joke.
[12:51:39] <Apsup> Or it was a joke, but it's a comedy manga, so that's given.
[12:54:08] <Churba> I've had six or seven pop up, but about half got taken down within a few hours.
[12:57:35] <Churba> I'm just glad they didn't toy with my heart by having a joke chapter of shiori experience
[12:58:21] <Churba> And that the new chapter of Doctor of the North Star aka Super Doctor K was genuine, too.
[13:01:35] <Churba> Ha, now this is a genuinely good prank on New Zealand radio - https://www.youtube.com
[13:03:43] <Churba> They tricked their workmates to come in and cover for them, pretending to be ill, and had their workmates get up at o-dark-hundred, come in to work, and do a radio show...to nobody. The feeds were linked right back into the other studio, where the pranking hosts were, and they were just playing with them, having the public call in and mess with them.
[13:23:50] <Churba> I still can't get over the fact that the shadow excheqer in England is named Ed Balls.
[13:24:52] <Churba> Oooh, this game looks interesting - http://www.rockpapershotgun.com

[15:04:11] <Churba> Oh look, another week, another uber driver arrested for committing a crime. I can't wait to see what the Tech-Bro uber defence squad come up with this time, assuming it won't just be another blatant misunderstanding of how statistics work.

[15:47:02] <SuperPichu> Is everyone in here idling?
[15:52:39] <SuperPichu> wow

[15:57:27] <Churba> Nah, I'm around. I'm just ducking in and out. Harder to keep track of it without my second monitor

[17:59:37] <GauntletWizard> http://techcrunch.com
[17:59:43] <GauntletWizard> I am surprised it is that low
[18:00:03] <GauntletWizard> Churba: The stats for taxi driver assault, perhaps?
[18:00:15] <GauntletWizard> Every uber driver arrest is headline news
[18:00:43] <GauntletWizard> taxis, which were actually a smaller market than uber in SF last year, still accounted for about 10 assaults a week
[18:05:41] <GauntletWizard> i am utterly failing to back up my claims; I swear I read a report showing 700 incidents reported by taxi drivers sometime in 201X
[18:07:25] <GauntletWizard> Here is a business insider article which outlays my case, http://www.businessinsider.com
[18:07:28] <GauntletWizard> though it cites nothing
[18:08:38] -!- hitstun has quit [Quit: ZNC - http://znc.in]
[18:13:11] -!- hitstun [hitstun!hitstun@444D67A4:53B65258:1D1270BE:IP] has joined #geeknights
[18:46:30] <Churba> That doesn't make any sense. SF has about 2000 taxis, which take about 4-5 drivers per cab to fill shifts. That's 8000 drivers for a slightly conservative estimate, whereas there's only about 3000 vehicles between Lyft, Uber and Sidecar, all of which tend extremely strongly towards one driver per vehicle.
[18:48:35] <Churba> Also, business Insider isn't a good source - they'll publish anything that they think will get the views. They're practically upworthy at this point.
[18:49:31] <Churba> The only way they can come up with the idea that there's more uber drivers than taxi drivers in SF is by pretending that taxis operate like Uber does, in terms of drivers, which they definitely don't.
[18:51:36] <Churba> Also, if you think every incident with an uber driver makes the news, you are wildly mistaken. I've personally seen about a dozen since the start of the year that I or colleagues have simply deemed not newsworthy for various reasons, and that's just in my city.
[18:54:29] <Churba> Also not including incidents where Uber drivers were arrested just for being uber drivers - that's not news, since it's illegal here.
[18:55:54] <Churba> Though, I do wish they'd do as the french did - and just raid the local Uber headquarters with cops. The uber CEO whinged about it, but he'd also been warned multiple times that they were breaking the law, and that "Fuck your laws" isn't a valid defence. The french response was basically just that scene from Liar Liar, where Jim Carey screams into the phone "STOP BREAKING THE LAW, ASSHOLE"

[23:53:39] <SuperPichu> W00T this app I'm writing is actually working
[23:54:56] <Demisedulous> Plot twist: You change the font of the UI and the app triggers dormant ICBM's from the cold war
[23:55:42] <SuperPichu> Ha. I doubt it... that would require the government to have bad security.......Oh
