Stygian Syzygy: “[The GOP are] the ones who promised their constituents they would do some simple things like repeal and replace Obamacare, get real tax reform and tax relief for their constituents, put ISIS in retreat if not full-on defeat, and keep us safe and prosperous,” Conway said Wednesday during an appearance on Fox News.
Stygian Syzygy: simple things.
Stygian Syzygy: ... simple
old-fashioned hurgusburgus: ...
Stygian Syzygy: something here is simple, that's for sure.

Stygian Syzygy: Wow. Flint just sent out notices for tax liens to 8000 residents, for their unpaid water bills
eggplant with benefits: glkjsfd;jg;adfjgafdg
eggplant with benefits: WHAT water
eggplant with benefits: when you say "flint", who exactly do you mean? city management? whatever their water district is?
eggplant with benefits: and how are those people even still alive, i'm sort of wondering by this point. in a vigilante justice sense
Stygian Syzygy:
arethinn: stars on a black background (celestial (16 bit stars))
sass chicken: girl at the water fountain just complemented me on my hair and said it was like some kind of "intergalactic space thing"
sass chicken: i guess because my greys are shiny
sass chicken: (space hair?)
Stygian Syzygy: you are some intergalactic space thing

(My grey hairs tend to stick out among my purple dye, since I don't bleach my medium-slightly-reddish-brown and the rest of my hair thus looks pretty dark, especially if not backlit. The silver ones, on the other hand, turn !PURPLE!. As for the video footnote to understand what I was getting at with that last remark, uh, sorry for the earworm?)

Somewhat pursuant to this entry from February puzzling over the grammar in dialog boxes in Word 2013:

evasive noodle: "Would you like to keep the last item you copied? If so, it may take us a bit longer to exit." -- when I close Word very quickly after copying something to the clipboard
evasive noodle: I still wonder who the "we" is and why it's speaking in the plural first person
evasive noodle: clearly i am not exiting so I think it must be an exclusive we internal to the program
evasive noodle: especially since it addresses me in the second person
evasive noodle: it is imps [referring to the imps inside iconographs in Discworld]
Stygian Syzygy: That's... a scary concept
evasive noodle: the first person singular would be twee. the first person plural is just baffling
Stygian Syzygy: Imps. And Clippy.
evasive noodle: their dark lord Clippy
arethinn: Google search for the droids we're looking for (random links (droids))

7:23:12 PM - Chekhov's banana: oh dear
7:23:18 PM - Chekhov's banana: cnn? that's a bit odd
7:23:36 PM - Chekhov's banana: i suppose so is verizon, since neither of these are exactly internet content providers
7:23:55 PM - Chekhov's banana: or is that not what you mean?
7:26:45 PM - Stygian Syzygy: yeah, it's odd for that.. I suppose they're both looking for something out of it that isn't the expected, maybe.. but either way, yahoo is probably dead
7:28:33 PM - Chekhov's banana: i wonder if that means The Way Of All Things for all the mailing lists they host

...eep. It would be a frightening prospect, if so. I have no idea how one slurps an archive from a Yahoo group.

enchawntment!: 2010 says "x replacements were made"
enchawntment!: 2013 says "We made x replacements"
enchawntment!: I dunno if they just wanted to move away from the passive voice, or what, but I find myself thinking, "who we, Billy G?"
Stygian Syzygy: heh
enchawntment!: it's the ghost of Clippy
Stygian Syzygy: .... no
enchawntment!: well, then who is the other party to the "we"?
enchawntment!: if not some kind of embodiment of the software?
enchawntment!: actually, since English doesn't distinguish between exclusive and inclusive we, maybe I should be picturing imps or something
enchawntment!: like, not it and I made the replacements, but two or more of them, whatever they are
enchawntment!: "We made x replacements. NOW GIVE US THE SACRIFICE"
arethinn: Bastian from the Neverending Story with book, text "can't talk, dorking" (geeky (bastian dorking))

...i hope

Shenanigator: Oh.. was that wrong?

Celebron: So, apparently Megatron came to earth to transform all of our technology into weapons to fight the autobots
Arethinn: ... wouldn't he already have better tech at his disposal?
Arethinn: being, you know, a giant living robot from beyond the stars
Celebron: he does, but basically needed parts
Arethinn: LOL
Arethinn: oookay
Celebron: but... he's been frozen on earth for... well, at least 100+ years.. and was looking to turn our electronics into decepticons
Celebron: and "all our modern technology is made from reverse engineering this giant icecube here"
Celebron: so... he came here to make use of technology that we only have because we studied his frozen body.
Celebron: ...
Arethinn: ah
Arethinn: wait
Arethinn: what?
Celebron: exactly!
Arethinn: so, he originally wanted our tech 100+ years ago?
Arethinn: decepticons are made from vacuum tubes?
Arethinn: maybe he wanted to kidnap Tesla.
Arethinn: just get to the part where someone stands under a scrotum

[yes, I know that's a later movie]

Arethinn: oh
Celebron: already fixed bugs since then!
Arethinn: i didn't see any toast [alert in the system tray from Pidgin], so
Arethinn: you know, that's a funny way of putting it
Arethinn: i know it pops up like toast, but no toast I've ever had went back down into the toaster all by itself
Arethinn: and the smooth motion, it's like it's trying to be sneaky
Arethinn: peering out over the rim and then retreating
Celebron: maybe not ninjas
Celebron: at least, not all of them
Arethinn: toast cat burglars?
Celebron: sometimes you see them
Celebron: those are the apprentices
