@orlp 420?
 
hahahaha
hahahahaha
 
@orlp nope, but since it is calculable, I'll add it
 
9:01 PM
I somehow perform half as bad as the random player
kinda puzzled why

@AlexA. I joke that it's what the squirrel said, but it's actually a mashup/abbreviation that one of my friends came up with of two other aliases I used to use
 
@Mego Looks like you're calling b on k/(m-k+1) rather than on k itself.
 
> "Read" doesn't rhyme with "lead," but "read" and "lead" do. And "read" doesn't rhyme with "lead," but "read" and "lead" do.

@AlexA. Yes, Ronda Rousey
 
@TimmyD the existence of bad pronunciation doesn't justify the existence of additional bad pronunciations
 
I'm getting the stinkeye. It was an honest question :-/
 
@Rainbolt not everyone's real name is as unconventional as yours
 
@NathanMerrill So true
 
9:04 PM
Well it sounded like he has heard leggo my eggo more than most people. I was wondering why, so I figured his name had something to do with it.
 
But no English rules are justified
 
Rainbolt? because thunder bolt was already taken by Zues?
 
Same with imperial units
 
Winter bash is coming all!
 
My Algorithms professor in college was Dr. Rainwater

Took him half the semester to notice me

@Rainbolt story behind Rainbolt ?
 
@orlp Added
 
wait your name is actually Rainbolt?
 
9:05 PM
@Rainbolt As a reformed waffle thief, I have probably heard "Leggo my Eggo" more than most.
 
@Optimizer Mispelling of a German last name like Reindall or Randalf.
 
@FlagAsSpam it's a letter (greek one)
 
@usandfriends Thanks for making CJam 101!
 
reindall is misspelled to Rainbolt? o.O
 
hey @anOKsquirrel

9:05 PM
@Rainbolt One of the two aliases I used started with "Lego" (I was like 10 when I made it)
 
@anOKsquirrel It's pretty terrible ATM.
 
@ev3commander ohai
 
@Rainbolt John Rainwater? The University of Washington math department has a running joke about a fake person named John Rainwater, who they use on publications.
 
@ev3commander Hello
 
@usandfriends It's great having a reference right next to your code tho
 
9:06 PM
That is true.
 
By the way any more strawpolls?
 
@Optimizer I assume that some time ago, US immigration laws were looser, and my family made it in with a minimal amount of paperwork, and the people helping them become "official" couldn't understand their German accent.
 
Anyone know if a challenge like append "¿" or "¡" at the beginning of a sentence?
 
It's just a guess. Their all dead now so I can't ask them
 
@usandfriends nope
 
9:07 PM
@Rainbolt I see.
 
@Rainbolt That's how my grandpa and his brother ended up with different last names.
 
@AlexA. Really???
Haha
 
@AlexA. His name was Stephen Rainwater uttyler.edu/cs/faculty/srainwater.php
 
My grandpa was Rustem Aruslan and his brother was Vakkas Arslan.
 
That is hilarious=)
 
9:08 PM
@AlexA. starts doxxing Alex ;-)
 
Maybe he changed his name from John to Stephen because your math department made fun of him.
 
My grandpa liked his brother's name better so in the 1980s he, my grandma, and my dad (who was already married to my mom so her too) all went from Aruslan to Arslan.
 
But why haven't they been asked to write their name down?
 
lets keep the chat a happy place :)
 
@flawr Because my grandpa's English and handwriting are terrible. He probably wrote it آﺮﺴﻠﺎﻦ and Ellis Island was like "uh what"
 
9:10 PM
who's up for some Barney and friends?
 
I hate you, you hate me
Let's team up and kill Barney

Irony makes people happy, right?
 
9:11 PM
@Rainbolt you can zap him with your bolt

It'd probably just make him wet
It is a rain bolt, after all
 
Too bad my name isn't Rainbolts. I only get one.

electricity conducts better when wet
@Rainbolt killing barney is worth it
 
@CSᵠ I know it is. But ugh, so is NUL.
 
@NathanMerrill how come the scores jumped an order of magnitude?
 
9:13 PM
Sorta.
 
Speaking of last names, when a gay couple gets married how do you decide who changes the last name? Or do you just both keep it?
 
Whaaaaaaaaaattttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt
 
@FlagAsSpam you're null
 
@Rainbolt Decided by the couple.
 
9:13 PM
@TimmyD I recall someone mentioning what doxxing is at some point...
 
@Rainbolt best is to find same sir name
 
@FlagAsSpam what you changed usernames?
 
@Mego I cannot get your memoization to work
 
@Optimizer So like I'll be Sir Rainbolt?
 
I'm the same as I've always been.
 
9:14 PM
@Rainbolt laws usually state in a marriage any can take the other's name
 
@FlagAsSpam uh nope
 
More strawpolls
 
or join them
 
@Rainbolt well, both will be Sir Rainbolt only
 
9:14 PM
@Votetoclose RIP
 
@Rainbolt Whichever. You can both take one name, use different names, or make up your own new last name.
 
Anonymous
@TanMath Python 3
 
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
 
@Rainbolt just like any other marriage you choose what you want
 
Same as any other couple
 
9:15 PM
I'm pretty sure you can change your name to whatever you feel like changing it to. I was just wondering if there was some sort of precedent for it.
Like hyphenation or whatever
 
@AlexA. any other couple don't make up new last names
 
You can
 
note to self: change name to AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
 
that the woman always took the man's name is outdated for decades
 
@ev3commander Always first!
 
9:15 PM
Doxing (from dox, abbreviation of documents), or doxxing, is the Internet-based practice of researching and broadcasting personally identifiable information about an individual. The methods employed to acquire this information include searching publicly available databases and social media websites (like Facebook), hacking, and social engineering. It is closely related to internet vigilantism and hacktivism. Doxing may be carried out for various reasons, including to aid law enforcement, business analysis, extortion, coercion, harassment, online shaming and vigilante justice. == Etymology...
 
any one can, but while marriage, any other couple will choose one of the last names
 
@Mego oh
 
@ev3commander strawpoll.me/6153680
@ev3commander do it!
 
@ev3commander Why.
 
done
 
9:16 PM
@Rainbolt I'm pretty sure the commonly agreed upon method is you thumb wrestle to see whose name to keep

@anOKsquirrel
 
@ev3commander you changed it?
 
@CSᵠ I noticed that scores were pretty variable from run to run, so I added an extra 0. I edited my post to reflect that change
 
oh :P
 
9:16 PM
@Optimizer Not necessarily. Geoff and Griffon Ramsey when they got married changed their last names to Ramsey. His was Fink and hers was some other weird thing, I forget what.
 
although
i might chagne my username
to that
 
ah
 
Anonymous
@AlexA. Don't forget his middle name is Lazer
 
@PeterTaylor what an edit
 
I have 4 names
what now
 
9:17 PM
@Mego I know XD
@orlp O R L P?
 
@AlexA. yes
orlp are my initials
 
Orange Rain Lemon Peeling
 
Oh okay. I knew the O and P.
 
Anonymous
@AlexA. Also he changed his last name for reasons unrelated to the marriage. His father's last name was Fink and his mother's maiden name was Ramsey. He changed it to his mother's maiden name because his father abandoned them iirc.
 
i have a friend with 7 names
 
bytheway @anOKsquirrel you know i created a tool for getting strawpoll results
 
I need a little help real quick.
 
@Mego Oh damn. That's more than I knew.
 
@ev3commander did you know you could click results?

@Mego Sounds like a good combo
 
@TimmyD wowe
 
I want to get off mr. Merrill's wild ride
 
Okay, so me and some guys in my Physics class are having some problems. Basically, we used the kinematics equation to find acceleration (2s/t^2 = a) and a try fit, then multiplied the "A" value by 2 (second derivative) and we got that the latter was half the magnitude of the former. Any valid explanation for this?

Q: Tips for golfing in Go (Golang)

sysreq Yes, I'm aware of this question, which got exactly 0 answers because nobody used Golang for golfing back in 2014. However, now, I have seen at least a few users (not including myself) using Golang for golfing (though it's not exactly optimal). I say, if Java gets a Tips for golfing in Java, th...

Hey ho
I have an idea for a fastest-code challenge. Here it is: fuz.su/~fuz/pi-challenge.md
 
@TanMath No, I'm pretty sure it's "slurp."

You get hats!

So Team Fortress lite?

Hats, clearly
Were you around last winter?
On the Stack Exchange network, that is
 
@flawr you earn hats that you get to put on your profile pic

Is there a meta post containing basic Code Golf rules that question-makers can copy/paste?
 
@usandfriends They're in the code golf tag wiki
 
its on main itself
its called Matin's questions
 
9:32 PM
@usandfriends most of our rules are applied by default
 
They don't need to be pasted into every challenge
 
@usandfriends all you really need to do is determine the scoring, and if you are still worried, post it on the sandbox

Eminem's 2013 music video for the song "Rap God" features imagery from Dante's Inferno, including a picture of Arachne. (This is most likely a metaphor for the rappers who try to compete with the self-proclaimed "Rap God").
