@steelersquirrel The Naughty Professor? Sounds dirty. ;)
@NapoleonWilson Why would anybody want to escape from New York? ;)
@AJ because the US turned it into a prison
it ended looking like crap......and it smelled bad
@DForck42 Cool! CAN YOU HEAR ME?!?!?! ;)
@AJ The Nutty professor! it sounds squirrely!! ;)

3:56 AM
So...can we take a poll about when ID questions can go away? Is there any reason why we can't just start the new year being ID free? That gives the meta post plenty of time doesn't it?
@DForck42 that’s not a good thing, always take health issues serious, always.
@Memor-X I can :p
@AJ it’s nutty
@steelersquirrel yes yes yes \o/
Woot! Woot! Woot!
@steelersquirrel so long as there plenty of time for people to voice their opinion so they don't bitch about it later because they were lazy
hell a week seems more than enough to me
Yeah...I agree.
I would think that a month would be more than enough time. If someone wants to complain that they didn't see it after that long, then that's nobody's fault but their own, imo.
Hello everyone!
Guy Fawkes still question in HNQ!
That adds another question which I skipped to answer and made HNQ! :/
4:12 AM
That same user asked the Jaws question that I answered that made HNQ :)
@NogShine Hello!!
I totally knew answer to that question.
@steelersquirrel Shouldn't it be "HELLO MY INTERNET FRIEND" ? ;P
I expect excitement from you.
@NogShine Hehehe! Sorry, that's my usual standard greeting when I actually enter the chatroom. Unless I'm responding to a ping from someone and I forget ;)
@Memor-X for me 1 hour is enough if it’s about ID 😂
Brews a cup of coffee for @steelersquirrel
@steelersquirrel hmmm
@NogShine because V for Vendetta is awesome
4:18 AM
@NogShine I'm going home in 1.5 hours and taking a nice long bubble bath and going to bed. No coffee for the squirrel tonight :)
@AnkitSharma then you'd get alot of these
A: What we'd like to do about those gosh darn "identification requests" questions

OceanJust my 2 Cents. 1 - This was a ridiculous small time frame. For a matter of this magnitude you should have allowed at least six months discussion 2 - ID requests are basically all I'm interested in answering on this site, since the rest of the questions seem of even lower quality, like questio...

Stairmaster has kicked my butt.
@steelersquirrel what is even this straignaster
@steelersquirrel What do you want then?
@NogShine Hmmmm... a million dollars? ;)
4:20 AM
Hahaha. To drink or eat..
@steelersquirrel hahahhaha
@AnkitSharma It's an exercise machine that my sister has that I'm using until I can swim again on Friday.
The pool that I normally go to is being re-lined and won't open up again until Friday.
I see @Memor-X pinged me in amen other room, will check that later
4:23 AM
And I have to workout. I just have to!
Running around and chasing nuts just doesn't cut it for exercise :P
@AnkitSharma i can bring it here
in Maid Café (メイド喫茶), 2 hours ago, by Earl Grey
movies.SE doesn't have tag either. Don't know if they banned it
in Maid Café (メイド喫茶), 2 hours ago, by Memor-X
@EarlGrey to my recollection they don't allow asking about porn
in Maid Café (メイド喫茶), 2 hours ago, by Memor-X
no porn id requests. no porno movie discussions
in Maid Café (メイド喫茶), 2 hours ago, by Memor-X
@AnkitSharma can confirm *sets the trap*
porn id is off-topic.
@NogShine that much i was certain
@AnkitSharma Yesss
4:27 AM
@Memor-X porn ID is off topic, rest in grey area
Q: Are adult movies (as far as industry, actors, etc... are concerned) on topic?

DVKI asked the question in a way that I think should avoid offending anyone (e.g. "no links to adult sites or names of porn movies in answers, please"). Who was the first actor/actress who made the move from Adult to Non-Adult movies full time? However, I'm worried if even having adult movies them...

Q: Are questions requesting that pornographic films be identified on-topic here?

senshinI am curious to know what this site's policy on identify-this-movie questions about pornographic films are. I have read the discussion at Are adult movies (as far as industry, actors, etc... are concerned) on topic?, but that question is 2+ years old now, and doesn't quite address this specific i...

4:42 AM
@Memor-X How long did that site keep the meta discussion open?
> asked Apr 21 '16 at 9:39 | The question owner accepted this as the best answer May 9 '16 at 4:30.
9 + 1 + 9 = about 19 days?
see even after over 2 weeks someone bitched about not getting time
That user had like 30 rep and it didn't really matter that they bitched it seems ;)
@steelersquirrel because they were a month late after the fact
like if you guys keep it open until the end of the year so you start the new year with the decision made that's more than enough time
@Memor-X Oh, gheez. Yeah...I don't have sympathy for that user.
> we have issue opened for over a month. not our fault you were too lazy to give your 2 cents then
4:50 AM
@Memor-X Yeah. Totally agree!
@Memor-X hmmm
Wow nice question about the blur sceenshot of video
What? Where? When?
PaulieD did a total copy + paste job on the answer ;)
Q: Why are paused frames of DVDs blurry?

Tyler DurdenSometimes when I pause DVDs the image is sharp, but in most cases, it is blurry. Obviously the film itself isn't blurry. Is the blurriness actually in the film strip or is it an artifact of the DVD pause process? In the strip below only one of the frames has any blur:

@NogShine ^^
5:08 AM
@steelersquirrel I expected little more input from his own side but it did answer the question well
@AnkitSharma Sure. It answered the question :)
5:28 AM
@steelersquirrel and after following napolean’s advice it improved so +1ed
Q: need help IDing a movie

skat999I cannot remember much of this movie so please bear with me. I think the movie is focused on this one guy who is befriended by another man despite him being awkward. The awkward guy kind of becomes obsessed with the friend. The friend gets enagaged and he goes with them to Europe/possibly Italy...

@AnkitSharma Don't worry. I was just being a smartass with my copy + paste comment ;)
6:04 AM
@steelersquirrel hmm

Q: Of all the movies and TV shows ever made, which of them is set furthest in the future?

CharlesLately I've been comparing how futuristic-set TV shows & movies have evolved over time, and while doing so, I became curious of the following... What's the most futuristic time period that's ever been depicted, in either a TV show or movie?

On topic? ^

10:34 AM
@NogShine unfortunately yes
It will be in HNQ for at least 2 days
Q: Movie where everybody had a microchip implanted

NihalI'm looking for a movie I saw more than fifteen years ago. I vaguely remember the plot but I can't find it! In this movie everyone has a microchip implanted that does everything for them: they don't need to count or to read, everything is done by the chip. The protagonist, however, refuses to hav...

139 hot points
ohhh :/
My trope question was there for more than a day with 18 points.
10:36 AM
@NogShine Is it 139.something decimal? I always thought it would be 139.000 (Like in the hundred thousands)...
Just imagine
@Tinkeringbell 139.118 to be precise
@NogShine Yeah... but is that decimal or just for hundreds of thousands?
@NogShine Sort of disappointing :P
somehow hundreds of thousands sounds more like an achievement :P
I thought of giving an answer too but it was only 25000 years in future.
@Tinkeringbell Hahaha
The current answers give trillions of years already
10:39 AM
@NogShine Yeah, and there's 2 from 2 different series that each go to 'beyond the end of the universe' ;)
@NogShine I hope mine stays there for as long as that too then, it's currently got (only) 21 points...
I'm missing many Hot questions!!!
@Tinkeringbell Which is your question?
on IPS?
@NogShine The IPS one about a brother drinking alcohol ;)
But there's like 6 IPS questions or so in HNQ? Is there a maximum number of questions from 1 site that can reach HNQ at a time?
I don't think so. It is based on votes the Q&A got.
IPS are totally dominating HNQ
@NogShine Yeah... and I don't really know if that's a good thing... It sorta seems unfair to other sites that may have very good quality questions...
But they aren't getting the attention they deserve?
@Tinkeringbell Congrats on 10k on IPS
10:51 AM
@NogShine Thanks :D
It was like perfect too :P
Now, the moderators over at IPS need to wake up and approve my comment flags... then I'll get my marshal badge today too :D
11:28 AM
@Tinkeringbell lol
@Tinkeringbell That's why I don't like question like that anymore
Maybe I need to press "protect" button soon
@AnkitSharma Won't do any harm I think... ;)
@NogShine I need one more HNQ to get 50K
@Tinkeringbell no idea, I have seen 5 form here in HNQ in past
@Tinkeringbell agreed
@Tinkeringbell congratulations
@JarkoDubbeldam why so silent lately
@Tinkeringbell I never got marshal badge :'(
@AnkitSharma Don't worry about it. Come over to IPS, flag every comment not asking for clarification or suggesting improvements... You can have on in about 3 months I guess :P
@Tinkeringbell lol
I think in Winterbash I need to pick more then one site for getting most of the hats, so I will pick IPS this time
@AnkitSharma Hmm... I don't think I'll have time to participate much... I have so many hobbies to do :P
11:35 AM
@Tinkeringbell ohhh but winetrbash is life
Next Wednesday \o/
@AnkitSharma internet life maybe... but I have a real life as well! :P I'll see how far I can get, but I won't be trying very hard ;)
I want to lead here again, watch out @AJ @steelersquirrel
11:55 AM
@AnkitSharma sorry :x
Busy, and 4 chats is a bit too much to juggle
@JarkoDubbeldam 4? I'm already way too distracted keeping up with 2 :P
Awkward Silence, Quill and Tankard, Screening Room and Charcoal HQ
@JarkoDubbeldam Oh yeah, Charcoal... I got privileges to report things there, and never returned to it afterwards :/ I really should open that tab.
12:39 PM
@JarkoDubbeldam ohhh, no worries
12:53 PM
@JarkoDubbeldam Charcoal is bleh :P
@JarkoDubbeldam no need for sorry either :)
free flags though
1:27 PM
@JarkoDubbeldam I need one, over at IPS. Can you make a spam post? :P
@Tinkeringbell that's not right
@AnkitSharma I know, and I hope you realize the smiley meant I was just kidding?
Otherwise, feel free to remove it ;)
@Tinkeringbell Patience, my young apprentice. Flag things and you will be a Jedi Marshal soon. ;)
@AJ I've got 6 pending comment flags, I only need 1 to get approved.... but Catija is still asleep :P
I got 572 flags here and no Marshal :D
1:43 PM
yeah, mods can't earn Deputy/Marshal when they're still serving
I think I already got Deputy
Now my next top bet can be scifi.se where I got 90 helpful flags
Can't ping Rand here to warn ;)
I have... 1925 on Science Fiction & Fantasy
and 100 here on Movies.SE I think
98, actually
Holy moly, my whole SE flags will be lesser then that including rejected ones
I have 10,000 flags network wide :D
I don't flag much and my networkwide participation is less
I get busy with stupid real life :P
1:47 PM
tsk tsk, who needs a real life
@Randal'Thor you have been warned, I want marshal soon ;P
I thought you weren't going to ping him.
can't as in he's not pingable if you type @rand
but he's superpingable, naturally ;P
Did you seriously do that? O_O
I was bored :(
1:53 PM
oh cool, I passed 11,000 helpful flags and didn't notice
11001 helpful, 139 declined, 39 disputed, 3 aged away, 77 retracted, 16 pending currently network-wide
^flagging is fun ;P
The phrase "get a life" comes to mind ...
8 mins ago, by Mithrandir
tsk tsk, who needs a real life
gingerly refreshes flag queue on SFF
...just went scifi/review and got a 503 error
oh, there we go
@Randal'Thor I did nothing yet :p
1:58 PM
@AnkitSharma I know ;-)
Wow, so many blue names in here, it feels like TL #2.
usually that's Charcoal HQ :P
We need Tinkeringbell or Memor-X to say something.
@Mithrandir What is? The place where the phrase "get a life" comes to mind?
nah, TL #2
@Randal'Thor ping ping ping @Tinkeringbell @Memor-X
we've had to prune because of acting like it was the TL sometimes :/
and wow, that HNQed hard
it had 34 hotness points when I checked o_o
2:00 PM
Stop eating other people's wedding food and come here, real life sucks and not important @AJ
now it's at 50
@Mithrandir What did?
The furthest-in-the-future question?
@Mithrandir which post
Q: Short story about "the monster under her bed", where the monster protects the girl from abusive parents

SecespitusI remember reading a short story on the internet, maybe a year or two ago, that was about a monster under the bed of a little girl. The story took about 10 minutes to read I think. Can you help me remember what the name of this story was and where I can find it? The story was written from the mo...

@Mithrandir I see you've picked up a few answering tips from 14111 ;-)
2:01 PM
@AnkitSharma Who dares disturb my slumber?
@Randal'Thor I did indeed :D
@Tinkeringbell Methought I heard a voice cry 'Sleep no more! Ankit does murder sleep'.
@Mithrandir +1
@Randal'Thor O.o
@Tinkeringbell we wanted non blues to talk, @Skooba can work too ;)
6 mins ago, by Rand al'Thor
We need Tinkeringbell or Memor-X to say something.
2:05 PM
@AnkitSharma thats colorist
@AnkitSharma The innocent sleep, sleep that knits up the ravell'd sleeve of care, the death of each day's life, sore labour's bath, balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course, chief nourisher in life's feast, ...
@Mithrandir Btw, there is one going around the internet about a man too.... in that story, the girl hides with the monster underneath the bed....
That's a version I read before....
@Randal'Thor something more dark will happen after "..."
@AnkitSharma You were supposed to say, "What do you mean?" :-P
There a joke about that too.... it applies to sports...
2:07 PM
@Skooba we are giving equal opportunity to non-blues to rant
@AnkitSharma but what if i want to rant about blues?
imgur.com/gallery/YV4ex @Mithrandir this is the one I read ...
@Skooba Hint: Rand is quite similar to Rant ;)
@AnkitSharma Rant-o-Rand-o-Rama
yeah, I think the one I found fits the question better - specifically the "Because she's mine!" / "Because I am the monster under her bed!"
2:09 PM
@Skooba You're lucky to be on that side; it would sound reeeeeally inappropriate the other way round.
they both look like they could have spawned from the same prompt, though
@Randal'Thor mods ranting about users? Isn't there a whole private chat for that :P
@Skooba sound fun
@Skooba I mean "ranting about blacks" as opposed to "ranting about blues".
@Randal'Thor OH
2:11 PM
Why's that the other way around, though?
@Mithrandir I somehow think the one you linked to is more of the original story, and the one I read was a rip-off?
missed that cause regular user names are black.... DUH
Oh. Drgh!
@Tinkeringbell quite possible
Although in SFF chat it'd be "ranting about whites" instead, because of the colour scheme.
2:11 PM
@Randal'Thor that esclated too quick, I hope no rant about pale yellow people
@AnkitSharma Nobody has pale yellow usernames on SE.
Unless you use whoever-it-was's userscript to make doppelgreener green again.
pale yellow usernames with no one inside them!
@Randal'Thor well that is socially acceptable these days, but I'll stop there.
@Randal'Thor CalvT IIRC
@AnkitSharma I might, but my work life also sucks so I can't chat during office hours.
2:12 PM
@AJ ohhh sorry
@Randal'Thor that can't work either else right wing people will come and catch you
I didn't mean to start a political fight :-/
@AnkitSharma also my appraisal time is coming up so can't take a risk.
Did something just break on SFF or is one of my scripts acting up?
The latter.
@AJ I can understand
2:15 PM
@Mithrandir looks everything fine to me, even nothing to flag :D
happens in private browsing too, so not a script
@Mithrandir What, you lost the top bar?
no, the white is too far right/left
Or is that just a cropped image?
@Mithrandir ?
2:16 PM
@Randal'Thor sound like a good news, top bar sucks
It should look more like this:
The white is covering up the right/left parts of the background when viewing a question.
@Mithrandir I just refreshed the tab.... it's broke, I went from right to all white too :P
@Mithrandir Oh, huh, you're right.
Post a bug report on meta?
It's getting weird for me but on refresh fixes
On main meta, since it seems to be an issue on other sites too.
2:19 PM
Ohh it's broke on question detail page only
@Randal'Thor not here or we can't even detect here :p
@Randal'Thor hmm, didn't even notice that.
@AnkitSharma also might not participate fully in the hat thing.
feel free to migrate; I gotta run
@AnkitSharma Did you never have coloured margins on M&TV?
@Randal'Thor I don't think so
nap can confirm, he got better memory
2:21 PM
It's happening on Puzzling too: puzzling.stackexchange.com/q/57671/5373
Time to leave stupid office \o/
@AnkitSharma I still have 40 minutes to go
It's not. But how would you even notice anyway?
Should have coloured margins like this:
2:26 PM
@AJ shit, I needed more competition for hats
@Tinkeringbell I hope you can tolerate 40 more minutes
@AnkitSharma Conception?
@AnkitSharma Yeah, I'll survive ;) It's a boring day though. Nearing the end of the sprint, so no new stories. I spent the day reviewing, writing documentation and adding comments to code :/
@Randal'Thor this stupid auto correct
Oh, and I made a wonderful powerpoint slide
That was definitely the high-light of the day
@AnkitSharma What kind of autocorrect changes your words to things that aren't words at all?
2:29 PM
Like Conception?
@NapoleonWilson No, like "conepetion".
Conepetition - a petition to the Highways Agency to use more traffic cones.
@Randal'Thor I don’t care about alphabets much in chat and spell correct try to make as much sense as it can but sometime it go gaba
@Tinkeringbell nice
@Randal'Thor lol
Q: Teenage Boy gives Counselling Sessions in the Bathroom

Peter SchumacherI'm looking for a movie where the main protagonist is a highschool boy from a rich family. I think he transfers from private to a public school at the start of the Movie and is not well liked because he stills wears his private school uniform. He has regular appointments with a shrink. But instea...

You don't say. ;-)
It’s a chat few alphabet here and there are fine speically on mobile
2:32 PM
For example this sentence. I don't entirely understand what it says.
What do you think is an alphabet?
@NapoleonWilson yeah me neither
An alphabet is a standard set of letters (basic written symbols or graphemes) that is used to write one or more languages based upon the general principle that the letters represent phonemes (basic significant sounds) of the spoken language. This is in contrast to other types of writing systems, such as syllabaries (in which each character represents a syllable) and logographies (in which each character represents a word, morpheme, or semantic unit). The Proto-Canaanite script, later known as the Phoenician alphabet, is the first fully phonemic script. Thus the Phoenician alphabet is considered...
'S what I'd thought, too.
Doesn't help too much, though.
2:51 PM
Okay, lemme guess... The latin alphabet we use in chat is different from the alphabet Ankits native language uses.

And the buttons for using this alphabet on his mobile are too small :P
3:05 PM
3:51 PM
@DForck42 Almost bedtime here, but I hope your day goes better than mine :P
@Tinkeringbell oh? something bad happen?
@DForck42 Nah... it was just boooring :P
@Tinkeringbell ahh ok
4:11 PM
Q: Identify this Anime

a.bennettI watched this anime with my uncle when I was a little kid and I cannot find it for the life of me. The only thing I remember are portals that people would go into and pop up out of. They wore armor like suits and I also remember a bridge that came up often. And the ending credits had a purple hu...
