I was about to say
 
7:10 PM
@Rubio No, I deserve this :P
 
no, what you deserve is some real stinkers.
fear not. they're coming. :)
 
well I can confidently say that 221' & 221" are the same
 
Ah probably. Whoops
 
but you probably shouldn't say that
 
7:12 PM
eh, I could have revoked my own
 
221' BAKER STREET?
 
@feelinferrety ... or just contact both
 
and saying one number "..." is equivalent to its sibling doesn't give much
 
I've always wondered if coke life tastes more like Brazilian coke having sugar from sugar cane, but the green can puts me off from trying it
 
@MikeQ and that is correct

221'' is BAKER STREET
 
(221'' Baker Street) also, assuming ff is correct

ok let's hold off on clues.
what is currently contacted?
 
42,1,8
 
42 is (FLIGHT OF THE) BUMBLEBEE
 
42 ✔️
 
I contacted 221''' as well
 
7:16 PM
46 is a Homestuck thing and those are all made-up words
 
Yeah, fair enough
 
I could do 40', 8, 1
 
8 is BIRD
 
8 is BIRD is the word
 
@ppperry I hope there's a very good reason for these numbers.
 
7:17 PM
there is
 
-13,000,000,000,-13,000,000,000' : BIG BANG

1,000,000,000: ...
 
oh, clever
 
contact 1,000,000,000
 
7:18 PM
1,000,000,000 is BILLION
 
1,000,000,000 is correct
 
5: ...
 
111: Actually a grass
 
20 could be BRAYERS, is that a team?
 
20 is not BRAYERS
 
7:20 PM
contact 33
 
That's an ice cream, isnt it
 
that's Breyers :)
 
@Sconibulus I think it's been done
 
Could someone star 111?
 
So what's the oldest contacted clue?
 
7:21 PM
40'?
 
Pass 40'
 
@Rubio ...is it burlap??
 
Oh, 2''' is contacted
 
eh. no.
any other contacts for 40' ?
 
If not, then pass 2'''
 
7:23 PM
Not that I found
 
2''': BATTLE?
 
I assume you mean 221'''
?
 
2''' predates 221''' by just a little
2''' is not BATTLE
 
I don't see it on the board
 
i don't even see 2''' heh
 
7:23 PM
Yeah, I was about to bring it up
 
18 mins ago, by Sherlock9
2''': A war
 
It's just above 6
 
oh
contact that
 
Is there any "easy" way to see what's already been guessed for given numbers?
 
Wait, what was 40' then
 
7:24 PM
@barrycarter search in the bar :\
 
nope. you kinda gotta read the transcript, or search it
40' was BRAID
 
QUIBBLE not a weave
 
contact 20
 
oh pish :)
 
Unless you're talking "A weave"
 
7:25 PM
Pass 20
 
(it actually showed up in the search but over 2 months ago)
 
oh. if you found the answer for 20 that way you can't really contact it
 
Since Rubio contacted 2''' after Mike passed, should I say what 2''' is or do I let Rubio guess?
 
Rubio, no, I searched for what I knew the answer was
Just to make sure it hadn't been said in this chat alreay.
 
I'm really confused right now. Did anyone else contact 2'''?
 
7:26 PM
ah ok then
 
I'd say go ahead and guess
 
So, do I say it, or does someone have to call on me? :)
BORAX
 
I can't validly contact 2''', I didn't see it'd been passed already
 
Attackers' problem if they don't star properly :o)
 
2''' is BOER
 
7:27 PM
20: BORAX ✔️
 
Mule team = Borax? Why?
 
I don't star since the ability to unstar goes away very quickly unless you're an RO or a mod, so someone else is stuck doing it anyway
 
Old advertisement
 
specifically, "20 Mule Team Borax" is like their product slogan. go figure.
 
7:28 PM
HAH what
 
Okay, give me a moment to remember what I was defending
 
yah. hehe

Did Barry guess 6? I think he's the only contact
 
6 BALLAST was my guess
 
someone uncontacted it, so there may not be any remaining
 
Okay... so pass 2&1'n1
 
6 was BARQUE
 
I guess BALL for 2&1'n1
 
7:52 PM
it is not BALL.
 
Darn
 
It is ... reserved. this is too good to waste. :)
 
I thought 1 in 1 = all
 
oh woops sorry
 
I think you have to reveal...
 
7:53 PM
@feelinferrety Also nice one
 
nope.
 
Nobody else contacted it, what was it?
 
for the record, Deus reserves all the time for the sake of his stringed clues
but yeah if it's a standalone, it DIES
 
usually when they die, rather than are wrongly contacted
 
You can withhold if it dies, but not if a contact fails. At least according to meta.
 
7:54 PM
meh.
very well.
 
eh, in that case I think it goes BAND[...]
 
it is B AND A N A
 
Ahhhh
 
... oh
 
Why the apostrophe?
 
7:55 PM
that ' then was NO BUENO
either it reads 1' or 'n, neither of which are valid for that answer
 
VTC extra apostrophe
 
VTC VLQ
 
it was crypticish. punctuation can be ignored, except when it can't.
 
Then where's the letter count?
 
there isn't one.
 
7:56 PM
VTC because I said so
 
Then what's the cryptic
 
it doesn't have to be a perfectly valid cryptic for Contact. :)
anyway. moving on ...
 
All is fair in Contact and code golf
 
I thought it was from an esoteric language where character literals are 'a
 
Hey, my cryptic clues may have been war-crime levels of bad, but at least they were mostly valid
 
7:57 PM
haha not compared to mine
 
Alright, what do we have left?
 
Mine are making-reparations-a-century-later bad
 
What is the next oldest contacted clue
 
40?
 
I contacted 40.
 
7:58 PM
51 i think
 
I've got 80
if not, contact 80
 
Pass 80
 
BAVARIA[N]?
