I found the code I had written for that golfy version of Asymptote but now I don't understand any of it
*tv service
Way to make me feel old, Pokemon :/
Umm. So what's the easiest way to look at/read a 3.8GB text file? Every program I've tried is choking on it.
2:04 AM
@Geobits head or tail
@Geobits vim
Thank you. Pfft, and people recommend Google for these things.
Some of my new music: soundcloud.com/phinotpi/tens
@Geobits Print it
Not enough trees.
2:07 AM
@PhiNotPi Nice!
@El'endiaStarman as;klasd;kasdfiowrek;v
Carolina Panthers sure are taking a beating. :(
@Geobits Cut some down
Plant some more
Keep making paper until there's enough
@El'endiaStarman 16 TO 7
2:09 AM
....I wish that commercial had been a movie trailer.
LG OLED TV, but it had a very Tron-esque feel to it.
CGI Jeff Bridges FTW
"Biodigital jazz, man."
Butterfingers seems like they're going the way of Old Spice.
Deathwish Coffee... someone give that ad exec a raise.
2:12 AM
Making deodorants?
OK I usually have a pretty good memory of how my code works but I seriously have no idea how this parser was supposed to work
I remember writing notes on it but I can't find them
I also added a little bit onto another composition: soundcloud.com/phinotpi/flower2
@PhiNotPi Nice.
HAHAHA. Kung Fu Panda commercial references the Old Spice commercials!
Okay, that Heinz commercial was pretty great
2:18 AM
@AlexA. Commercial style.
@Doorknob @Alex would've loved it.
Oh I've seen that
It's amazing
@El'endiaStarman proof: ^
Unrelated to handegg: TIL Cats can catch/kill/eat 3 finchs in one day.
...singing sheep.
2:23 AM
I was about to say that haha
-1 not enough goat
@El'endiaStarman Have you seen the film Shaun the Sheep? It's good :)
Aardman Studios
@AlexA. Name sounds familiar. Did it come out recently?
Wallace and Grommit style?
Yes and yes
I probably oughta note that somewhere so I don't forget to watch it sometime.
2:26 AM
@Downgoat About that: Why not Dng or Dongo?
Dongo is good
It's like a dong dingo

Hello! Discord?
During the Super Bowl? Good luck.
2:33 AM
I still don't know what a Bronco is, but apparently it's good to be one.
...Transformers-style razors.
> What could possibly go wrong? [handed card] ....oh yeah, that could go wrong. ~ Colbert
2:39 AM
@AlexA. Those are really bad btw.
@Dennis What are? Those men?
Their outfits certainly are...
Their music is worse.
Oh, haven't heard it. I'll keep that in mind though.
It's too bad they aren't playing at the Super Bowel to cheer on their namesake team.
TIL the newest KIA is like the world's most exciting pair of socks.
2:45 AM
@Dennis Whoops. Remembered that, did not make the connection, though
> If your brain was donated to science, science would return it. So stop it.
^ Anti-drunk-driving message. I approve. :P
Oh, and "Darwin-award deserving" was part of the string of insults.
@El'endiaStarman XD
This game makes me real sad.
3:08 AM
yup, that's right
I bet the entire SE network sees significantly lower traffic during the Super Bowel.
> Bowel
> Bowel
Less than two minutes left in the game.
3:18 AM
It's still physically possible for the Panthers to win.

@PhiNotPi Not anymore. :(
14 pt diff, 11 seconds.
0 seconds
By the way, Broncos head coach will be is the first head coach ever to win the Super Bowl as head coach and as player of the same team.
It's still physically possible. All we need is some negative mass to create a time loop.
3:24 AM
Well, final score: FGTDXPtdxpFGFGfgTDXD, 24 TO 10.
Plot twist: the entire Super Bowl television broadcast was staged (I can tell because of the pixels), and the Panthers actually won.
In my dreams...
> I can tell because of the pixels
Toyota did good with their Prius commercials.
3:34 AM
Doritos was awesome too
JavaScript? What a waste of a great GitHub username. :P

3:43 AM
how does one learn vim
@AlexA. Related: I reserved ppcg.github.io a while back for future use. :P
@Quill If you're on *NIX, you should be able to just type vimtutor at a command line
that's a thing? cool

@AlexA. Oh rly?
U wanna go m8?
@ӍѲꝆΛҐӍΛПҒЦꝆ I'm not really interested in dating you, if that's what you mean. >_>
valentine's day is only a few days away
Neither am I. I challenge you to a RPS tournament right now.
Bot vs Bot.
RPS? Round Penguin Shop?
Rock Paper Scissors.
Make a bot to go up against me.
*my bot
3:57 AM
In what language?
@Quill ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Hmm... Javascript.
I don't script Java, son.
Then lets go with DUP!
Deadly Underpants Pants?
4:01 AM
I don't want to fight your underpants.
No one does.
They're far too deadly at RPS.
I consistently win RPS battles at my school.
With your underpants? >_>
And my hands.
If you know what I mean.
Is that Mr. Bean?
So far I'm tied.
11 me - 18 tie - 11 bot
NVM now it's 12 me
14 me
12 bot

low quality bait
Did u just call IE low-quality? U want a RPS fight too?
Dude, IE is the cutting-Edge of web browsers right now.
What you did there. I see it.
@ӍѲꝆΛҐӍΛПҒЦꝆ not subtle enough to be funny
You have seen the light of IE! Let the Edge of dawn rise into the land of the Internet! The Second Coming is here!

Dude, IE is the cutting-Edge of web browsers right now.
The Second Coming (sometimes called the Second Advent or the Parousia) is primarily a Christian concept regarding a future return of Jesus to Earth after his "first coming" and ascension to heaven about two thousand years ago. The belief is based on messianic prophecies found in the canonical gospels and is part of most Christian eschatologies. Views about the nature of Jesus' Second Coming vary among Christian denominations and among individual Christians. Most English versions of the Nicene Creed include the following statements: "...he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of...
Replace that with IE.

Excellent quality fish, my cousin.
Oh so now you wanna explore the sea? I see now.
you're really sinking, drowning, in fact
You could say I'm on the Edge of sinking.
amirite amirite
@ӍѲꝆΛҐӍΛПҒЦꝆ no you're under the water
4:28 AM
Unrelated: I saw a graph once of water consumption over time in some city during the Super Bowl. You could tell when the breaks were because there were huge surges in water consumption, presumably due to everyone getting up to use the bathroom.
@Maltysen Who said underwater exploration wasn't a thing?
@AlexA. There was an animated movie like that
Flushed Away, it was called
@Quill Mulan?
@Quill Oh
@AlexA. Indiana Jones, actually
Osmosis Jones
4:29 AM
Mulan was a good movie
@Quill Oh you talkin' 'bout an explorer?
For those not aware:
Osmosis Jones is a 2001 American live-action/animated buddy cop comedy film directed by Tom Sito and Piet Kroon for the animated segments and the Farrelly brothers for the live-action ones. Unusual in this genre, the animated characters are inside the live-action ones: the film is set in a fictionalized version of the human body which resembles a large city, where micro-organisms or any being based in organisms are anthropomorphic and centers on Frank Detorre, a slovenly zookeeper. Osmosis Jones, a white blood cell, teams up with Drix, a cold pill, against Thrax, a deadly virus who plans to kill...
This movie was such garbage
@AlexA. oh my god my biology teacher made us watch that
4:33 AM
@Cyoce I must have been lucky not to watch that.
@Cyoce Seriously? D:
I foolishly saw it in the theater when it came out
@AlexA. all my bio teachers have been (and still are) terrible
I've only ever taken one biology class. I'm sorry you've had more than one.
Of all of the sciences, I hated biology in school the most.
why u do dis @alex
4:36 AM
(And yet somehow I've ended up working in the life sciences for the past 5 years)
@Cyoce Really? All of mine are amazing (including biotech teachers).
@Cyoce I love that one. So true :D
@Quill Do what

Of all of the sciences, I hated biology in school the most.
I have literally done 0 of these types of things before. There is only so many PPCG posts I can read before I had to start trying. Thanks for the information. Just trying to soak in your other answer now. — Matt 3 hours ago
4:39 AM
@Quill Yeah dude, biology sucks. I liked chemistry. I like the concepts behind physics but I disliked my physics classes.
I took Biology, but in retrospect I'd rather have taken the more advanced maths class instead
Was it an elective for you? It was required for me.
you didn't have electives?
Oh, yeah, but we didn't have science electives at my high school.
@AlexA. I had a really cool bio teacher but he got pulled over with weed in his car and got arrested.
4:43 AM
@Maltysen O_O
so we got the crappy bio teacher for the rest of the year
we don't have science electives at my high school either :( I'm stuck with bio and only bio
in retrospect, from the stories he told, we should have known

@Maltysen "So this one time, I grading papers then realized it was 4:20 so I blazed up a doobie. I got little scoobies on the tests haaaaaaaaaaaahhh"
@AlexA. he actually threw up over our tests once
@AlexA. We have biotech.
4:47 AM
@Maltysen Oh god. Like on them?
> really cool bio teacher
we all got 100's
@ӍѲꝆΛҐӍΛПҒЦꝆ What does that entail?
@Quill XD
@AlexA. We have a biotech elective.
Look up San Mateo High School biotech
4:48 AM
@Maltysen It's too bad that the classed missed out on an opportunity to learn because he teacher got barfy. :P
@ӍѲꝆΛҐӍΛПҒЦꝆ I know what you meant, I was just wondering what the actual elective was.
not like Biology is hard anyway
San Mateo High School is an American National Blue Ribbon comprehensive four-year public high school in San Mateo, California serving grades 9–12 as part of the San Mateo Union High School District. San Mateo High School continues the "Tradition of Excellence" that first started in 1902 and strives to create a unique campus life for all of the students and staff, which remains different from any other high school in the San Mateo Union High School District. There are many programs that define SMHS: the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) Curriculum, Biotechnology Training Facility...
@AlexA. well, we took the tests, he threw up on em while grading
We're proud of it
Look at the Google images too.
4:52 AM
@Maltysen hahahaha
I shouldn't laugh, that's pretty bad
It's good to see schools hiring such quality teachers
@AlexA. the best part was that the other teacher who covered for him for the rest of the year handed out a paper saying that he had an intestinal hernia. Some kid found the article a couple days later and there was a huge shit storm.
@Quill But he was actually a really good and dedicated teacher. He actually filled out a recommendation letter for me the day after he got arrested.

@NewSandboxedPosts what does any of this mean
Cops post a program, robbers prove whether or not it halts
Easy to understand, even to noncoder <- isn't that subjective?
I'm much more concerned what he means by "formal proof"
12:49 PM
I'm much more concerned with what he means by "not obfuscated"
not obfuscated presumably means clear variable names
I've sandboxed a halting problem golf in the past and it wasn't suitable so I deleted it. Now I can't refer to it by commenting on the new challenge because the link won't work for most users. Makes me wonder if it would be practical to just delete posted challenges and leave poor fit challenges undeleted as indication that they have already been ruled out.
@Doorknob If it's not obfuscated, won't that mean that the challenge is a mathematical one rather than a programming one?

this is one of the only questions on this site to make me audibly say "wow!" because it's so creative and interesting

@trichoplax that's actually the only way to beat a bot :)
As they're usually playing the "perfect" move, it could be hard to do anything if you're not manipulating it
@Katenkyo It helps that this one is only trying for a win each time, rather than maximise its score. Less to try and predict...
2:39 PM
@trichoplax By the way, which game it is?
@trichoplax I have no idea what would be a good move against me, since i tend to play a random move every time when i play. without reading "what the computer is thinking", i have no idea what "most people" do
@quintopia (i'm still judging based on chess) just think about what you would play if you were playing on his turn too
@Katenkyo that would make sense for chess. we're talking rock paper scissors
@quintopia lot more difficult to predict what he is doing so ! Just try to analyse how he respond to your moves
@undergroundmonorail oracles are also annoying af because they're the reason we can't use diagonalization to prove P =/= NP
@quintopia If you really play randomly (rather than as a human trying to approximate random) then the computer will have no way of predicting you, which would explain why it can't beat you but only draw.
it's taken o_O
