[12:47:58] <Bronz|work> Hi Apsup
[12:48:04] <Apsup> helloo
[12:49:26] <Bronz|work> I wanna buy "some" plasticine, so any amount is fine. But everyting that's less than £10 is an add-on item =(

[13:38:53] <Bronz|work> Hi Aria.
[13:39:09] <Aria> Morning
[13:39:22] <Aria> I see it's quite a bit later than when you woke up
[13:39:34] <Aria> I don't even remember waking up in the morning
[13:39:39] <Aria> Are you doing good?
[13:41:00] <Aria> I woke up to my phone buzzing over a text saying Tesco will be late
[13:41:45] <Bronz|work> Ah well, at least he wasn't already at your dor.
[13:41:47] <Bronz|work> *door
[13:41:58] <Bronz|work> I wanted to get some plasticine for at work.
[13:42:01] <Bronz|work> To keep my hands busy
[13:42:20] <Aria> That doesn't sound terrible though. Then I would've woken up with breakfast available
[13:42:23] <Bronz|work> And then I thought, "I wonder if you could do motion capture with clay"
[13:44:14] <Aria> I think that would work alright, but a action figure where you can plug in joins in places would work better I think
[13:45:24] <Apsup> Keeping action figures balanced is hard. Clay isn't trivial ether, but little bit easier.
[13:46:01] <Aria> Doesn't need to be balanced. It's not reporting root orientation to the computer
[13:46:36] <Apsup> Oh, right, I misread. You didn't talk about stop motion.
[13:46:57] <Aria> Also you canuse a stand like other action figures
[13:53:30] <Aria> Are one finger gloves a thing outside of music videos/RPGs/fashion shows?
[13:54:17] <Aria> Like, is there some trade where you need your index finger protected, but the rest of your fingers need to have full range of motion?

[13:57:09] <Bronz|work> Bow shooting has two fingers.
[13:57:19] <Aria> Yeah I know about that one
[13:58:06] <Apsup> If you are really fond of flipping the bird for dangerous people?
[14:03:06] <Aria> Hey Bronz|work, you are master bowman
[14:03:22] <Bronz|work> Aye.
[14:03:23] <Aria> What's the best bow?
[14:03:31] <Bronz|work> Best bow?
[14:04:00] <Aria> The modern compound bow doesn't have any powered or networked parts, right?
[14:04:01] <Bronz|work> I mean, I guess the compound bow hits the hardest/is the most accurate.
[14:04:08] <Bronz|work> (Not counting crossbows)
[14:04:16] <Bronz|work> No, compound bow works with pullies only.
[14:04:19] <Aria> So why weren't they used in history?
[14:04:46] <Bronz|work> Hard to build, mostly.
[14:04:55] <Aria> Do they have to be plastic?
[14:05:05] <Bronz|work> Bows were made from a single piece of wood, and a lot of force is put on them.
[14:05:22] <Bronz|work> If you split it wrong, the bow will explode as you shoot it, and you don't want bow splinters in your face.
[14:05:36] <Bronz|work> Modern compound bows usually have seperate arms and body.
[14:05:43] <Bronz|work> And the arms are usually made of fiberglass
[14:06:02] <Bronz|work> You can make them from wood, but even then it's usually multi-layer glued wood.
[14:06:08] <Aria> What's the best bow used during the 100 year war?
[14:06:27] <Bronz|work> For war, it'd be a long-bow, probably.
[14:06:40] <Bronz|work> The English were famous for having longbowmen which were deadly
[14:06:52] <Aria> For hunting?
[14:07:09] <Bronz|work> You'd use a hunting bow, which was a lot smaller/manageble.
[14:07:11] <Aria> And using modern engineering, but not materials or production methods, are there any improvements on the English longbow?
[14:07:46] <Bronz|work> I guess you can add stabalizing arms.
[14:07:49] <Bronz|work> They had rubber back then, right?
[14:08:15] <Aria> I don't think, like, good rubber
[14:08:16] <Bronz|work> What they're for is to remove the shake from the bow when you shoot it. It makes the bow heavier, but you do get the benefit of less recoil/more acuracy.
[14:08:26] <Aria> So Dark Souls says composite bow is straight up better than longbow. Is that false?
[14:08:59] <Aria> Also look at this shit https://staticdelivery.nexusmods.com

[14:09:31] <Aria> I keep hitting ctrl W while looking at the wrong window
[14:09:38] <Aria> I really want focus follows mouse like in Linux
[14:09:38] <Bronz|work> Yup, that's the guy that really likes anime
[14:10:08] <Bronz|work> Anyway, composite bow works kind of on the same principle as the compound bow.
[14:10:19] <Bronz|work> But there it's more to make the bow lighter/smaller
[14:10:27] <Bronz|work> You don't get the hold bonus.
[14:10:46] <Aria> Ok so now comes my real question
[14:10:48] <Bronz|work> Compound bows, because of the way the wheels at the top turn, are comparitivly light to hold streched out.
[14:11:05] <Aria> If I take a stock composite bow. Like glossy dark wood texture
[14:11:17] <Bronz|work> Aha?
[14:11:18] <Aria> ANd then I put tacky gold eagles on it like it was the Destiny version of that same bow
[14:11:25] <Aria> Will it no longer work?
[14:11:32] <Aria> Or work poorly
[14:12:11] <Bronz|work> like this? https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com
[14:12:34] <Aria> Nah, that one is alright, two sec
[14:12:39] <Bronz|work> It shouldn't impact the bow too much, unless it gets very heavy. Even then, it shouldn't impact it too much.
[14:12:51] <Bronz|work> Sorry, remove the first "too much".
[14:13:02] <Bronz|work> My main worry would be the decoration getting flung off.
[14:13:06] <Aria> http://orig06.deviantart.net
[14:13:24] <Bronz|work> Oh, that's not on the arms at all.
[14:13:28] <Bronz|work> That's fine.
[14:13:44] <Bronz|work> Might get in the way of the arrow though, which would be bad?
[14:13:56] <Aria> https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com
[14:15:12] <Aria> Ah here we go. If you look at this picture, do you see a fancy bow, or a unrealistic bow? https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com
[14:15:44] <Bronz|work> C'mon, how would you shoot that? Those arms can't bend with that wood in the way.
[14:15:51] <Bronz|work> The bow has to actually deform, you know.
[14:15:58] <Bronz|work> Espeically with that harp attached there
[14:16:09] <Bronz|work> Same, to a lesser extend, the previous one before that.
[14:16:47] <Aria> Wait it has a harp? I figured those where just weird gridlines
[14:17:22] <Aria> Metal bows weren't a thing?
[14:17:38] <Aria> Aluminum or something soft
[14:18:06] <Bronz|work> You need something that has sprinyness, without actually bending.
[14:18:17] <Bronz|work> Not sure if they had the accuracy in medeival times to be consistant
[14:19:06] <Bronz|work> Because you need to be consistent to a very large degree, otherwise the strength of the bow can vary wildly.
[14:20:27] <Aria> So it should be wood, and decorated on the middle and sides, but the bit that bends whould be left unimpeded
[14:24:53] <Aria> X shaped bow make sense?
[14:45:40] <Bronz|work> X-shaped?
[14:45:47] <Bronz|work> Like, having 4 bow arms?
[15:15:16] <Aria> Yes
[15:15:19] <Aria> Also food arrived
[15:15:31] <Aria> They didn't have my bagutte
[15:15:52] <Aria> And black friday is today?
[15:15:54] <Aria> But its a Monday..
[15:16:09] <Bronz|work> It's 'cyber monday'
[15:16:23] <Aria> The deals on Amazon aren't very good
[15:16:33] <Aria> Except for some of these TVs
[15:16:36] <Bronz|work> Cyber monday Amazon deals are never good.
[15:18:11] <Aria> So I found this great picture on google image search
[15:18:33] <Aria> did reverse image lookup, found a blog that had it, where they said the original source was this guy on Drawcrowd.com
[15:18:43] <Aria> But that picture isn't in there, and nothing else he draws is very good
[15:18:55] <Aria> But its all high quality drawing skills, so I could belive its the same guy
[15:23:18] <Aria> What is this, seriously? https://drawcrowd.com
[15:23:27] <Aria> That is not science fiction, that's a butt.
[15:24:12] <Bronz|work> Yeah...
[15:24:16] <Bronz|work> that's bad.
[15:29:18] <Bronz|work> Bye
[15:30:41] <Apsup> Papersizes are bullshit!
