I've still lost.

That moment you realize at 2200 that you have a 5 page essay due the next day and you haven't started and you're all like 'f*** my life'.
 
@FlagAsSpam I feel so sorry for you ;-;
OH SH*T I HAVE AN EXAM TOMORROW
Lol XD
 
\o/ I'm not the only one!
 
We can commiserate ^̮^
 
I do not think this word means what you think it means. o-o
Any who. Poetry essay calls.
Night all.
 
10:11 PM
Only 14 more upvotes until the gold code golf badge! Must... post... answers...
 
@FlagAsSpam Good night!
@AlexA. I will make the sacrifice.
:P
 
What?
 
@FlagAsSpam It means to share in misery? Right?!
@AlexA. Nothing ^_^

A: Output the Current Time

FlagAsSpamVitsy + bash, 13 11 bytes This language feature was made after this question, but not for this question. <w1Z,'date' < Loop leftwards in the code. Rest of code is written in reverse for "readability". 'etad' Push 'date' to the stack. , Do the shell script for what's in...

Shelling is fun.
 
Indeed! Work on your essay.
^_^
 
10:23 PM
@BrainSteel Do you use Homebrew on your Mac?
 
I do.
Not that that was directed at me.
 
No. I've been meaning to look into it, but every time it's come up it seems like the least convenient thing to go through :P
 
@FlagAsSpam I thought about pinging you but I remembered that you should be writing an essay. ;)
 
Eh.
I'll probably call "busy"
I had zero time this weekend.
 
@BrainSteel I thought it was weird at first but I've recently embraced it. It's insanely easy to use.
 
10:25 PM
@FlagAsSpam That's odd. I got my usual 24 hours.
 
I attended 6 carol services, 4 of which I sang in, and a secular concert in which I played saxophone and had to hide my gf from my father.
@BrainSteel ಠ_ಠ
 
@BrainSteel They ripped me off. I only got 23 and 3/4
 
@FlagAsSpam Why did you have to hide your gluten free from your dad
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Oh dear. I'd demand my money back.
 
@AlexA. I am uncomfortable with my non-wheat diet.
My dad's an aglutophobe.
 
10:26 PM
I'm sure he'd understand.
 
I feel like this conversation is about to hint at something much deeper.
 
@BrainSteel That's the darnedest thing! I tried to call them, but every time I did, they just removed the time of the phone call.
 
@FlagAsSpam What is a secular concert?
 
@AlexA. A Christmas service without Christ.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Who is your time provider? I'll tell everyone not to go to them!
 
10:27 PM
@BrainSteel Horizon.

@FlagAsSpam Like Christmas for atheists? I'm still confused.
 
Never use it .... shudders
 
clap clap clap
 
@AlexA. Secular = non-religious
 
Right
 
10:28 PM
So, yes.
You're right.
Well done.
 
@AlexA. It's for people who want gifts and all that crap but don't want Jesus. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
 
^ This exactly. And some carols.
 
Haha
 
I'm curious why atheists want a christmas service at all.

That's a Christmas celebration, not a Christmas service.

(we don't talk about the orange vegetables anymore... not since the incident)
 
@AlexA. I meant to say concert, not service. :P
@BrainSteel parsenip.jpg* giggle
 
Did... Did I miss an incident?
 
10:31 PM
TNB devolved into a hellish carrotscape
 
I... I thought it was just that one time...
 
Luckily the fad seems to have largely died out
 
@AlexA. see my message
 
OH GAWD WHAT HAVE I DONE
 
Oh damn.
Ouch.
It disappeared.
That was flagged as spam very quickly.
So why did my carrot poof?
(I missed this too. c:)
 
10:33 PM
I saw a carrot, and then I didn't.

> Carrotberg Uncertainty Principle: "Did I see a carrot, or did I not...?"
 
Apparently stealth pings got banned and subsequently patched in my absence, too. It's a whole new, slightly less noisy place.
 
@BrainSteel This is true.
 
@FlagAsSpam *berg
 
10:39 PM
Damn, I can't edit it.
 
@FlagAsSpam ftfy
 
@AlexA. What happened to carrots?
 
I, too, like orange vegetables.
 
What happened to them in general? They're in every supermarket. They were even in season recently.
 
@FlagAsSpam Ah, someone fixed for you. Be glad. :D
 
10:40 PM
@BrainSteel Sweet potatoes?
 
Anyone know how I can cite this in an essay?
 
Are you sure you want to cite Reddit in an essay? :P
 
You can't XD
But wait nevermind
It's on a cultural source
 
@AlexA. With sweet potatoes, it's all about the preparation. A little cinnamon, baked, maybe some syrup, they can be gold. Most sweet potatoes aren't very great.
 
10:42 PM
Which source-type? MLA, APA...?
 
@AlexA. It is the only source.
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ MLA.
 
:D that's easy
 
I do hope you're writing an article for Buzzfeed.
 
@BrainSteel ಠ_ಠ
 
@BrainSteel Yeah. I like yam fries on occasion but in general I don't like yams. Asian sweet potatoes, the ones that are yellow inside and purple outside, are awesome.
Reddit is an acceptable source for Buzzfeed articles.
 
10:43 PM
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
 
Buzzfeed is journalism at its finest.
 
@AlexA. Ah, yes, I've had some very good yam fries in my time. I've never heard of these purple yams. You should, uh, send me some.
 
@FlagAsSpam ...
 
^^^ I wish I could star that
 
10:44 PM
 
That face creeps me out.
 
Same
 
Okay, okay, I'll stop. xD
I'm crying.
This is beautiful.
 
There, there.
 
@BrainSteel By "yam" I meant American sweet potato specifically. Idk if all sweet potatoes are called yams.
 
10:45 PM
 
@AlexA. I don't see how this impacts your ability to send me some. :D
 
Those look like some ordinary potatoes. Is there a plot afoot? I'll have no truck with plots!
 
Just look at that page.
Beauty incarnate.
 
blech
 
10:47 PM
@BrainSteel This plot has no feet.
 
> google.co.uk/iuqw4vq8nrvh98ujaiwhfupwa8ytowiauejrvnoawiuer2...
 
@AlexA. Play about a dude with no legs?
 
@AlexA. Does it have a truck?
@FlagAsSpam I hear there's a nice little book with a fella named Humpty who would like a word with you.
 
Such fun. No collision detection yet, but other than that, basically everything else has been implemented.
 
> All the king's horses and all the king's men tore off the legs of Humpty again.
 
10:49 PM
^^
And the AI
 
@El'endiaStarman Oh, that's actually really neat. Did I miss a sandbox post?
 
Well, other people will be writing the AI... :P
 
Yeah, but we should have our own test ones

A: Sandbox for Proposed Challenges

El'endia StarmanSpacewar! king-of-the-hill If you've ever played Spacewar!, you know it was a fun game. If you haven't, know this: it was (and is) one of the very first and most important computer games. And it's still fun! The clone I grew up on is this one, which is, apparently and unfortunately, Windows only...

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ True.
 
@FlagAsSpam You're such an ampu-tease.
 
10:51 PM
@El'endiaStarman I'll finish up the Backend for the AIs
 
YAY! :D
 
@Doorknob I got teh vim upgred
 
You probably could write at least two AIs yourself, or just write one and play against it yourself.
 
Gravity is really odd with the toroidal game field.
 
@AlexA. yey
 
10:52 PM
@El'endiaStarman Yup!
 
@BrainSteel Definitely. And part of what makes it fun. :D
 
Gravity is such an oppressive force.
 
Heyyyy I got both ships into tightish orbits, and Blue orbits entirely inside Red! :P
@AlexA. No, it's an attractive force.
Incidentally, it's very easy to make it repulsive. Flip a sign. :P
 
@El'endiaStarman No argument there. I think it may be a bit strong, but I haven't played with this enough to get a good feel for it. I like it. Are there going to be collisions with the central object?
 
10:53 PM
@El'endiaStarman Seems a little pushy if you ask me.
 
@BrainSteel Yup. The sun is fatal (and will gobble up missiles too).
 
Turn this into an electromagnetism experiment with positive and negative charges :D
 
I've done that before. :P
Years ago, with Blitz 2D.
What's really cool is to have gravity and charge repulsion.
The dots settle into a roughly hexagonal pattern.
 
Out of curiosity, what's the reasoning behind allowing bots to exploit others?
 
I think it'd be neat to see a metagame.
 
Bots will only have read-only information of everything in the field.
I'll also specify that you can't simulate other bots within your own.
 
I think it's interesting. I await a fully functional game :D It'll be nice to have a with a really mathematical edge.
 
Woot! :P
 
On my screen the second line is significantly shorter D:
 
10:58 PM
You have an inferior font, then.
 
Beat me to it, Scooby @Doo.
 
@BrainSteel whoa
 
@Doorknob lel
 
Exactly one hour until Winter Bash
