Cuck koo, humans! :D
11:37 AM
Meh... No humans, no fun. :(
11:49 AM
@Wildcat There's a chemical here \o
12:26 PM
and a ghost
scared them all - it is what us ghosts do
@Loong @Wild cat is looking for a human to play with.
Oh, boy! We have a new pretender for the highest number of downvotes in a day prize! :O
humans, nah, they are just toys for us ghosts
@Wildcat ?
12:33 PM
Here you go! 5 post, -5 rating. XD
-1 for each.
holy moly!
Could easily be -5 for each to the end of the day. :D
well he does not have the informed badge
Weird, since I think I've seen that avatar before.
Well, he is a member for 8 months...
12:40 PM
why does his rep read +1 when it should be -5?
rep does not go into negatives
you can't have a negative = bad reputation?
the lowest your rep can go is 1
12:44 PM
@skillpatrol Yes, the minimum rep is 1.
@Wildcat this will probably lead to automatic answer ban
his account should start to fade
like the negative answers
@Loong Serves him right.
@skillpatrol What's the point?
SE focuses on the content (usually), not the person.
@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M consistency
@skillpatrol (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M what is that??

> The other terror that scares us from self-trust is our consistency; a reverence for our past act or word because the eyes of others have no other data for computing our orbit than our past acts, and we are loath to disappoint them. ... A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do.
He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every
@Ghost Take a look at the tags of the room.
aaah - table flipping?
ah got ya
hey what happens when an account reaches 200 for the first time?
12:52 PM
@Ghost +100
on that account only?
Well, all accounts made after that or before that will earn 100 rep.
oooh nice... am 12 rep away!
@Ghost Ouch, I don't have an account in Academia.
@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M that's no problem!
12:54 PM
Anyway, @Ghost they call it association bonus, assoc. bonus for short.
very cool - will be getting that soon enough
it appears we have 3 sites in common
actually, 4 - forgot Area 51
Is Area51 a site? :P
I wonder.. i wonder
an experimental site
Which has been experimental for 6 years.
1:02 PM
actually its a site which has proposed sites within it
I know.
I used to participate there.
me too pal
i still do
hey, i am only 2 off the assoc bonus
Assoc. bonus is really useful, since you'd be able to literally comment/upvote everywhere in SE with just making an account there.
For instance, take a look at my TeX account.
Hehe Area51 is ancient, I can't even retract my CV there.
@Ghost you should have the bonus now pal :-)
1:15 PM
not seeing it yet - caching probably
it looks lik I am still 2 off (on Academia), but my Physics went up nicely - am doing not too badly
holy moly.... I think I just got the assoc bonus
1:32 PM
have fun

Any computational chemist around that can help me understand link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs00214-013-1443-8 or wants to write up an answer themself?

Q: Purification Problem in Darzens Method?

Prachurjya BiswasWe know that the Darzens method of substitution works on $S_n i$ and is considered the best method in terms of yield of product. Also the side products are $\ce{SO_2}$ and $\ce{HCl}$ so the equilibrium shifts in the forward direction. But we know the lower haloalkanes are gases so if the molecula...

@Jan you killed the poor OP!

4:50 PM
@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M I had a gun. It was aimed at you, but backfired D=
@Jan See, that means twistboat conformation is stable.
It just means I had a cheap and bad gun.
Such a shame for a chemist.
Go hang yourself ! ! ! ! ! ! ! 111 !!! one one!!oneone
By my current luck, if I go hanging myself, the rope will rip ,)
Talk of unintended puns on that 'rip' =D
do ropes "rip"? :-)
I thought cloth rips...
perhaps, a rope made of cloth :D

5:00 PM
What else would you suggest, @skill?
@skillpatrol Enjoy a valuable repository of emoticons.
@skillpatrol Kit-kat?
But break sounds more like a plate breaking.
Hmm, not sure about snapping ropes either.
5:03 PM
Oh, is this some game? Oooh tell me how to play!
5:24 PM
Yes @inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M which verb would you use for the action of a rope becoming two ropes?
@Jan Mitosis
@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M beat me to it
I will say "binary fission".
So if I go hanging myself, the rope will mitosis? ;)
Guys, verbs.
@orthocresol inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M beats everyone to it. ᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ

5:32 PM
@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M @inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M did @Wildcat just walk across your keyboard?
@Jan My fingers did, but good point. I'll check.
Speaking of checking, let me check how much I isolated today.
@Jan How long is your half-life?
Dunno. All I can say is that half of me didn't decompose yet.
So you're stable. That's boring. Yawns
5:42 PM
@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M Why, did half of you already decompose? If so, which half?
@Jan It didn't. That's why I said it's boring.
We're both boring? How boring.
@Jan While you're boringly stably boringly boring, I'm not boringly boring, but just boring with regard to the not-boring fact that I boringly am awesome at not being boringly boring.
@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M You're bored.
6:01 PM
That's even more than ಠ_ಠ!
When should the next TRE be guys? IOW, fill in the blank: Friday, at --:-- UTC
but that includes all "o" and "O"
No search functionality online is case-sensitive these days.
Firefox can do case-sensitive searches.

6:13 PM
Why not same time, same day?
Just playing around with the time to see what time is best for people.
For instance, @Mart couldn't be there in 15:30.
And we need him to repeatedly remind us that Mathjax ≠ LaTeX so that we'll have enough energy to continue.
We could always get ourselves a jumpy record to remind us …
That isn't as sausage-efficient as @Mart.
It's all because there are no white sausages in the North Y,...,Y
6:29 PM
Why did a bio question over at biology just show up in the feed?
@Jan Because it has the tag .
Though I completely agree that biology is inferior.

Q: What do significant figures think of significant figures?

inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.MWe have a number of questions that are asked here solely because they're problems people face in chemistry classes. Examples are: Significant figures used to imply stated error? When expressing a quantity, do the non-significant figures determines whether you round up the last significant figur...

@StackExchange ᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ
8:22 PM
@StackExchange Shouldn't you add a significant figure to that question?
9:06 PM
@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M May I add some significant figure to your post?
