12:10 AM
Luckily I did not eat a horse just now.
 
@RegDwigнt Disgusting.
Why not eat poop?
@terdon I happen to be listening to Kεμάλ by Αλκίνοος Ιωαννίδης now.
And Βοσπορος.
I can even understand half of the lyrics of Βοσπορος in the (Greek) subtitles!
 
@Cerberus No talking about poop in this chat!
 
Tell that to Reg.
 
12:27 AM
Tsk.
 
Someone told me my colour is maroon.
But when I used GIMP to create it, it said 'brown'.
 
It kind of is.
Or just "red".
Haha.
 
Well, I guess colours are not well defined.
@Cerberus How are you and Mario?
 
Good.
I am talking to him as we speak.
 
I wonder where my Maria is now. Who would she be?
 
12:36 AM
On Tinder.

12:56 AM
@JasperLoy That's the best ever!
@JasperLoy Maroon is good. Brings out the color in the hat.
 
1:25 AM
I didn't know smokers were exposed to that much radioactivity.
 
1:38 AM
rolls eyes
1 hour ago, by Cerberus
On Tinder.
lol
graciously awards the prestigious Pompidou Star Award
 
@Cerberus yeah, that needs justification. is that from the xkcd chart originally?
 
2:03 AM
@Mitch Probably not; it is from a documentary.
The polonium and the lead in tobacco smoke are apparently quite radio-active.
Even so, it is quite likely that the other harmful effects of smoking are far greater...
It is in English.

3:51 AM
I'm trying being invisible.
Except the waffles
 
I'm trying being a horse
except I'm a hippo
with a big patriotic hat
close though, I suppose hippos are the river horses.
 
A hippo is a horse
Oh yes, so you say
 
Flußpferde
 
Hippopotamuses are river horses - hippos are just plain old horses.
To the pedant, anyway.
Yours is a hippie hippo
 
I am not an appreciator of Greek, but it works in German well.
I am just a hippo. no potatoes or anything else.
 
3:57 AM
I don't really know anything but English
 
best get working on your Korean.
 
I know smatterings of Greek and Latin.
 
ah, yes, the left behind building materials of western language.
 
Hey that's really cool.
Watch
this
The waffles envelope my name and reputation
 
watches carefully
 
3:59 AM
Oh wait, not the reputation
I can only say three things at once
There
 
click clack
I need to get rest before my 10 hour drive, but I cannot
fall asleep
and if I leave late, I will not make it to Chicago in time for dinner at Graham Elliott Bistro.
which is a thing I really want.
and if that happens, I will have no other choice but to murder everyone around me and then burn everything to the ground.
and then start a genocide.
Welcome to Pedant Club
actually, the sign outside said The Pedant Club
 
I am sorry for you.
The Pedant Club?
 
"phooey"
 
Sometimes I am a pedant. Sometimes I am not.
 
I am a mean, snarky, pedantic hippo
 
4:11 AM
I used to be more of one. But ELU discourages conventional pedanticness. Now I am smugly an over-pedant.
 
when I yawn, all of the small fauna runs or flies away.
because they think that I am going to eat them.
alas, I cannot make friends with birds.
 
You yawn a lot.
Oh yes, you are tired. That's right...
It's weird, you're in the middle of a yawn every time I glance over
I think the medium-size fauna should be the scaredest.
The large fauna would stand strong, while the minute fauna would readily evade your lumbering orifice.
Go to sleep. I will now do two things.
Firstly.
OK, it's 10.21 pm where you are.
Not bad.
 
11:21
I am in eastern time traveling to central time.
 
Or else you are not there. Oh yes, my dear watson, you are 10 hours away
That would explain the time disparity. Still not bad
I am at 11:21
How do you pronounce your last name?
 
Georges Jean Raymond Pompidou (French: [ʒɔʁʒ pɔ̃pidu]; 5 July 1911 – 2 April 1974) was Prime Minister of France from 1962 to 1968, holding the longest tenure in this position, and later President of the French Republic from 1969 until his death. == Biography == He was born in the commune of Montboudif, in the department of Cantal in central France. After his khâgne at Lycée Louis-le-Grand, where he befriended Senegalese future poet and statesman Léopold Sédar Senghor, he graduated from the École Normale Supérieure with a degree of Agrégation in literature. He first taught literature at the lycée...
 
4:25 AM
I wish I knew French, but not enough to actually stop doing the things I am doing, and learn it...
I've just put the cap on the first hat-getting spree of the season, which is why I'm up.
I will play a few bullet games on chess.com and go to bed.

Thanks @Cerberus
Very informative.
 
8:03 AM
I am a cornish hen.
 
@skullpatrol - CUTE avatar! Very Christmasy!
 
Thanks pal @medica :D
@medica how are you?
Now that^^ video is justification clearly against smoking @Mitch
 
8:28 AM
there's no possible valid argument against smoking because plenty of people do it all the time and it's clearly not such a big deal.

9:11 AM
@medica signed up for Health yet?
 
 
1 hour later…
10:18 AM
Suddenly feels very cold here.
 
We have had enough heat in here
@JasperLoy did I enlighten you at all with all of my heated arguments yesterday?
Honestly of course.
 
@skullpatrol Not really, but thanks.
 
What did you not find convincing @JasperLoy?
 
10:34 AM
@skullpatrol Well, there was nothing special about it to enlighten me, that's all.
 
What @JasperLoy do you mean by "special"?
 
@skullpatrol Powerful? Maybe. Anyway, never mind, I think you are overthinking it.
 
What I went through, and am still going through, is the most powerful life changing experience I can possibly imagine. I'm sorry I can't share the details of it on the internet.
 
@skullpatrol I see. OK.
 
10:56 AM
The most powerful thing that can happen to you @JasperLoy comes from inside of you.
A powerful belief in yourself is what I'm talking about my friend.
Nobody can make you believe in yourself but you.
