[11.05.59] < ejp> I think we all read that as ‘stimulate’
[11.06.21] < esch> man that sentence is the greatest achievement in English

Watchdongs

19:43 < xeno> Along with her GPU, mrs_xeno got a code for a free copy of Watch Dogs
19:43 < xeno> trying to convince her she won’t like it and should give the code to me :D
19:44 < solios> irta watch dongs
19:44 < solios> which makes your followup a bit funnier
19:44 < solios> >.>
19:49 < mdxi> i dunno about you guys, but the image search results i get for “watchdongs” are just flat-out baffling
19:49 * solios looks
19:49 < solios> no I did not mean watch dogs
19:49 < solios> er.

watchdongs

19:49 < solios> mdxi: what.
19:50 < solios> mdxi: IDI AMIN
19:50 < solios> wtf.
19:50 < solios> I don’t even
19:50 < mdxi> i have absolutely no idea. Red Spy. A lady picking her nose. Several ICs. Ellen deGeneres with an eyepatch.
19:51 < mdxi> is it a secret code?
19:51 < ejp> that’s some impressive random

Boss

16:22 < solios> xeno: Boss has a certain vitriol to it that house of cards hasn’t even heard of and doesn’t even try for
21:54 < solios> xeno: also they apparently resurrected Dave and got him to write the sex scenes for Boss.
22:08 < ejp> you hate sex in TV/movies though
22:08 < ejp> I’m pretty sure you hate sex as a concept
22:08 < solios> I do
22:08 < solios> but there’s inoffensive sex and offensive ex
22:08 < solios> SEX even
22:08 < solios> also exes
22:08 < ejp> uh huh
22:09 < solios> coerced oral has in fact Ended relationships. I fucking hate that shit and have no tolerance for it as a fictional device for obvious reasons.
22:13 < ejp> there’s safe, sane, and consentual power play, there’s encouraging, and there’s non-consenual.
22:13 < ejp> the lines between them of course are blurry as shit
22:13 < solios> yes
22:13 < solios> and any thing that looks like any of it goes in the NO box
22:13 < ejp> ah.
22:13 < solios> this means my sex life is cautious and boring :P
22:13 < ejp> indeed. :)
22:14 < solios> it also means I have to repeatedly explain to people into BDSM (apparently THE REST OF THE FUCKING POPULATION) that I don’t need it explained to me, I’m not interested in it, I won’t engage in it, KEEP THAT SHIT AWAY FROM ME etc.
22:14 < ejp> that’s totally fine BTW. lots of girls have no issue with vanilla, or prefer their kink of the physical or non-mental species
22:15 < ejp> it *is* possible to seperate with S&M from the D/s, but very few do
22:16 < ejp> speaking of
22:16 * ejp toddles off
22:37 < solios> heh
22:37 < solios> I’m not into any of it
22:37 < solios> the outfits are just shorthand for the rest of it
22:37 < solios> makes it real easy to avoid
05:16 < ejp> solios: if you think that everyone into kink goes around dressed at al differently you’re going to have a bad time
07:22 < xeno> ejp: solios just has a bad time, in general.
07:23 < xeno> being asexual,or At Best, quasisexual, in a very sexual world, is a large part of what has damaged his brain so badly for the past 35 years
16:31 < solios> ejp: oh; re: outfits. Ever been to goth night? The dress code is like star trek uniforms. You can tell what a person’s into just by looking at them.

Community

07:41 < xeno> “Now for the bad news: alongside Community, NBC also canceled Revolution, Growing Up Fisher, Believe, and Crisis.”
07:43 < ejp> I see no bad news there
08:00 < mdxi> i wish someone would cancel tv
08:25 < solios> Community was good
08:25 < solios> Revolution never should have made it past the pilot
08:29 < solios> I seem to have resolved the display issue
08:29 < solios> turn o nthe primary first and it comes up correctly
08:30 < xeno> solios: from what i’ve seen of fan reactions, community got really crappy in the last two seasons
08:31 < xeno> I’ve watched it a few times; it’s on at 10pm weekdays on one of the channels
08:31 < xeno> Sometimes it’s hilarious, most of the time it’s funny, occasionally it’s crap and i turn it off
08:31 * xeno goes outside
08:31 < solios> I didn’t hate s4 but it wasn’t as good as 1-3
08:32 < xeno> solios: are neither of us bothered that both of us like the show
08:32 < solios> no
08:32 < xeno> a show that really we should Loathe?
08:32 < xeno> it’s, like, everything we hate
08:32 * xeno blames the flag
08:32 < solios> it was OM only with a gay dean instead of diane
08:32 < xeno> alskdjfha;sljdhfgiauwseorhgaerdjfshbga
08:32 < xeno> holy fuck
08:32 < xeno> It totally is!
08:32 < solios> see?
08:32 < fagbot> FUCK YEAH
08:33 < xeno> fagbot: botsanka
08:33 < xeno> o_o
08:33 < solios> :D
08:33 < xeno> fagbot: botfolgers :P
08:33 < fagbot> P is for Plan 9. or for PegasOS or for pink or for people’s or for pants or for wangs or Pabst
08:33 < xeno> O_O
08:33 * xeno actually goes outside for real

The post about vehicles in Team Fortress 2.

10:40 < xeno> The problem is the people, really.
10:40 < xeno> Stalker Online would be awesome if everyone playing was there to play Stalker Online
10:40 < xeno> But most of them are going to be there to be assholes
10:41 < solios> yeah
10:41 * solios whistfully whistfuls about WET for a moment
10:42 < xeno> WET++
10:42 < xeno> I missed vehicles, but it was great nonetheless
10:42 < xeno> Then there was ET:QW :|
10:42 < solios> ftn
10:42 < xeno> And it *had* vehicles.
10:42 < xeno> It was utter crap.
10:43 < solios> yeah, well
10:43 < solios> the in-game bits were based on q4
10:43 < xeno> Really, the last good online shooter afaic was bf1942 with the Eve of Destruction mod
10:43 < solios> so.
10:43 < xeno> everything since has sucked
10:43 < solios> heh.
10:43 < xeno> tf2 notwithstanding
10:43 < xeno> that’s a different type of game, more an arcade than anything
10:44 < solios> I guess this is the part where I paste “I’d enjoy multiplayer if it were possible to play against people that played it as often as I do (eg almost never) instead of fat suburban neckbeards that don’t do anything else.”
10:44 < xeno> and tf3 should have vehicles too dammit
10:44 < xeno> even with the corny atmosphere of tf2
10:44 < solios> tf2++
10:44 < xeno> The scout would get a mountain bike.
10:44 < solios> even if I haven’t played it in forever
10:44 < xeno> With scythes on the sides like old chariots
10:44 < solios> spy would get a vespa
10:44 < xeno> als;kdfj;as
10:45 < xeno> YES.

TOAST REPORT

Following up:

20:57 < mdxi> TOAST REPORT: Laura: the bread was homemade, it was DELICIOUS, better than any bread you can get from most bakeries
20:58 < mdxi> Laura: they toast the bread in a regular slot toaster
20:58 < mdxi> Laura: and then they absolutely FROST the top with butter, and then dump a sahara of cinnamon on top
20:58 < mdxi> Laura: they also take the knife and poke holes in the bread after slathering it with butter, to get the butter to melt
20:58 < mdxi> Laura: was it tasty?
20:58 < mdxi> Laura: yes
20:58 < mdxi> Laura: would I go back? yes
20:58 < mdxi> Laura: would I order the toast? yes. but maybe light on the butter.
20:58 < mdxi> Laura: the bread totally made up for it
21:02 < ejp> \o/
21:04 < ejp> good cinnamon toast is a marvelous thing
21:06 < mdxi> now we can tell esch that while hipsters may be all over it, it’s quite good toast
21:06 < mdxi> also, the coffee is good

Day changed to 23 Mar 2014

07:58 < esch> thanks guys, now I have a toast-on.

Ted Cruz

18:53 < solios> fagbot: Cruz is also a four-letter word for gayness
18:53 < fagbot> OK, solios
18:53 < xeno> ejp: I also have pickled cipollini onions
18:53 < xeno> they seemed like a good idea at the time
18:53 < solios> fagbot: Ted Cruz is also a 7-letter word for small, squeezy boobs
18:53 < fagbot> OK, solios
18:53 < xeno> solios: since the federd;lakjfsdlkajhsdf
18:53 < xeno> asasdkflhgnedjn
18:53 < xeno> fdjhk
18:54 < xeno> sfo
18:54 < xeno> l
18:54 < xeno> .
18:55 < solios> xeno: go on, finish your thought.
18:55 < xeno> ,
18:56 < xeno> aaaaaand, tits
18:56 < xeno> *badumdum*

Helix

18:54 < rjbs> Helix. We gonna watch it?
21:33 < solios> It may get better.
21:33 < solios> I saw the first three episodes.
21:33 < solios> “boring” is an inoffensive description for it
21:35 < solios> Alien does the bits they took from Alien better; Regenesis did the bits they took from Regenesis better; The Thing does the bits they took from The Thing better, and The Andromeda Strain (the original) does epidemiology better
21:35 < solios> in short its influences are obvious and superior
21:35 < solios> though it beats the crap out of the remake of The Andromeda Strain
21:38 < solios> It’s also got the politician from The Killing in it
21:38 < solios> which made me want to watch that again
21:38 < solios> (The Killing is pretty good)

04:16 < rjbs> I forget that they remade Andromeda Strain.
05:19 < esch> ugh was it good
05:21 < rjbs> sounds like no, since solios said a lousy scifi show “Beat the pants off” it

< esch> I’m going out there to drink their beer and hate their toasts.

11:44 < ejp> http://www.psmag.com/navigation/health-and-behavior/toast-story-latest-artisanal-food-craze-72676/
11:51 < mdxi> this is a parody, right? like the How To Sharpen Pencils video?
11:53 < ejp> I’m pretty sure this is entirely real
11:54 < esch> are those tattoos on her cheeks
11:55 < ejp> yes they are
11:56 < xeno> fagbot: doot people, and “people”:
11:56 < fagbot> Sentences Never Heard On Earth Before: I’m sorry I got your D&D character laid last night.
11:56 < xeno> indeed
11:57 < esch> Why all the toast? “Tip of the hipster spear,” he said.
11:57 < esch> I’m going to piss.
11:58 < esch> this toast looks like shit toast-3
11:58 < esch> fuck that toast.
12:00 < solios> hah
12:00 -!- solios changed the topic of #loc to: < esch> fuck that toast. | < mdxi> without getting into the issues of the porn barrel and such
12:05 < ejp> that’s not toast. that’s half a loaf and a blowtorch
12:05 < solios> awesome.
12:06 < solios> ejp: I ignored your link and it popped up on facebook.
12:06 < solios> fucking toast.
12:09 < mdxi> “No one can be mad at toast.”
12:09 < mdxi> she hasn’t met esch, clearly
12:09 < solios> indeed
12:10 * solios evacuates #arrakis, nukes SF from orbit
12:11 < ejp> solios: YOU CAN’T STOP THE TOAST
12:11 < solios> I CAN TRY
12:11 < esch> I’m going to SF in a couple weeks
12:11 < ejp> TRY THE TOAST
12:11 < esch> I’m gonna go to this toast place and get toast and then drop it and stomp and spit
12:11 < solios> kick them in the nuts and take their toast money
12:12 < ejp> esch: you’ll piss off the hipsters. and then they’ll, uh, something
12:12 < solios> Just tell me one thing, esch.
12:12 < solios> You’re going out there to destroy them, right?
12:12 < solios> Not to study.
12:12 < solios> Not to bring back.
12:12 < solios> But to wipe them out.
12:12 < esch> I’m going out there to drink their beer and hate their toasts.
12:13 < solios> All right, I’m in.

12:24 < xeno> #loc++
12:25 < esch> I want that on my headstone.
12:25 < esch> RIP, here lies esch: he drank beer and hated toasts.
