@Cerberus Apples turn to shit. That's why there are so many broken iPhones.
 
Right.
 
It’s raining again. And the NCAR people have discovered that we actually hit the 1,000-year flood mark. (Read: 0.1% chance of it happening in a year.)
 
is there a ppm symbol?
 
Our coastal areas need to be protected against floods that happens every 10,000 years.
Some inland areas, only once in 500 years.
Some smaller areas that are really outside the dikes, next to rivers, once in 250 years, but probably also even more frequent floods.
I don't think all dikes are entirely up to the standards, though; but most will be.
The white areas are either to high to need protection, or they're just allowed to be flooded.
Mainly the former.
Hmm I think most of those inland area are 1250, not 500.
 
9:25 PM
Bleh.
 
1. Got the job from Craigslist three years ago.
2. Yes, I have accidentally tasted it.
3. He pays me $2,000 a batch, which I only make once every six months.
4. He puts it on his breakfast to prevent Alzheimer's.
5. There is only about 10% sperm in each of those bottles. The rest is sugar and corn syrup.
 
Yer gross.
 
The Internet really is like, I dunno.
That's what happens when you create Craigslists, children.
Or invent computers.
 
Put people back in their cave, bitte.
 
Yeah I've seen some weird shit in my life, but on the Internet I can see twice as much any given minute.
 
9:31 PM
Like two Apples?
 
That's a bingo.
 
Hey, do you say "bingo" in German when someone makes a correct remark?
Or when you have found the solution to a problem?
We do.
 
we do
 
I think it's universal at this point.
Even in countries that don't have bingo.
 
Ah OK.
Alas.
Well, it's actually funny.
So it's OK.
 
9:41 PM
yeah no fun
 
...
I suppose you do.
 
I like how the AMA guy's name is meester_snoeklepel.
 
What?
AMA?
 
Ask Me Anything.
 
9:42 PM
@JohanLarsson It was fairly funny.
@RegDwighт No.
 
That is not a question.
 
And we can still see it in the History of your line!
 
You have to frame it as a question.
 
You know you can remove lines?
 
Wait, you can see histories?
 
9:43 PM
Click on the arrow, press delete.
 
@Cerberus yes
 
I thought only mods could access them.
 
@RegDwighт You thought you were keeping all of that stuff you were doing a secret, hmm?
 
owners can see deleted messages
 
@Cerberus No, of course not.
 
9:44 PM
Anyone can see histories except when a line is deleted.
 
I think edit history is google indexed or what it is called

I might be the owner of most rooms on SO
 
That's the joke. You funny.
 
@JohanLarsson The history, even? You think so?
 
9:45 PM
@Cerberus I think I read it
 
- I joined the army to see the world, but all I see is this lousy kitchen.
- Don't complain! Here's turkey, here you have china, and there's grease all over it!
 
@JohanLarsson OK.
 
* Joined the army
 
Haha.
Welcome!
I see we have a Swedish invasion going on...
 
@MårtenW just you wait till Bangkok invades Djibouti.
 
9:46 PM
@MårtenW you can edit your message for two minutes
 
ok, will do
 
@MårtenW I did not mean it like that :D
 
@RegDwighт Then you know someone is fucked.
 
@Cerberus No, I always know that.
@Cerberus It's because of the Maus.
 
No need to share your personal experiences with us out of the blue.
You think so?
 
9:48 PM
 
What do you think about the word "inexorable"? It usually means something like "unstoppable" or "relentless", but could it also mean "unable to apply XOR to"?
{| style="background:#f9f9f9; border:1px solid #ccc; float:right;" |- | |- | Venn diagram of \scriptstyle A \oplus B but not is |- | |- | Venn diagram of \scriptstyle A \oplus B \oplus C ~\oplus~ ~\Leftrightarrow~ |} Exclusive disjunction or exclusive or () is a logical operation that outputs true whenever both inputs differ (one is true, the other is false). It is symbolized by the prefix operator J and by the infix operators XOR, EOR, EXOR, ⊻, ⊕, and ≢. The opposite of XOR is logical biconditional, which outputs true whenever both inputs are the same. It gains the nam...
 
@MårtenW maybe complement or what the opposite is called in math?
 
@MårtenW Haha. No, but good thinking.
That's inxorable.
 
@Cerberus: Ah :) but phonetically it will be the same I guess?
 
Do you pronounce XOR like "ex or"?
 
10:00 PM
@JohanLarsson: no, the complement is a unary operation while xor is a binary operation
@Cerberus: I do, but practice may differ..
 
Right!
I'm going for a run now, it's midnight...
 
watch out for wooden poles in intersections
 
The ones in the middle of the road that cars crash into?
Will do.
 
the type that is driven into hearts
 
10:26 PM
> "I think not since Katrina have this many people been rescued by helicopter"- officer Utterback of Nat Guard
> Boulder OEM: Number of unaccounted for now at 230.
And that’s just in our one county. There are 14 disaster counties total.
 
what is a county really?
 
Eh?
You don’t have counties?
 
I don't know as I don't know what the word means
 
Gorsh, now I gøtstä learn me some Swede to splain.
> A county is a geographical region of a country used for administrative or other purposes .
 
I could google it
 
10:33 PM
> A county may be further subdivided into hundreds, townships or other administrative jurisdictions under the county's control. The boundaries of a county usually, but not always, contain cities, villages, towns, townships or other municipal corporations. Depending on the particular nation, municipalities might or might not be subject to direct or indirect county control.
 
@tchrist We have kommun, landskap and län
 
It’s how we organize things.
 
how big is it?
 
Which one?
 
A state has X counties?
 
10:33 PM
No.
State X has Y counties.
It is unique per state.
 
ok but it is a tree like that
State is divided in counties
 
A county is a geographical region of a country used for administrative or other purposes in certain modern nations. Its etymology derives from the Old French term, conté or cunté and could denote a jurisdiction in mainland Europe, under the sovereignty of a count (earl) or a viscount. The modern French is comté, and its equivalents in other languages are contea, contado, comtat, condado, Grafschaft, Gau, etc.) (cf. conte, comte, conde, Graf). Counties work very similarly to a skeleton, in that they hold up a state together. When the Normans conquered England, they brought the term w...
 
I'm questionbanned by google again btw
 
Huh?
What does that mean?
You aren’t allowed to google?
> As with the shires of Anglo-Saxon England, counties in U.S. states are administrative divisions of the state in which their boundaries are drawn. 3,143 counties and county equivalents carve up the United States, ranging in quantity from 3 for Delaware to 254 for Texas.
> Depending on the individual state, counties or their equivalents may be administratively subdivided into townships, or towns in the New England states, New York, and Wisconsin. In these cases, the township is generally subordinate to the county, which is generally subordinate to the state.
A country has states, a state has counties, a county has townships, and a township has cities and towns and villages and hamlets.
 
@tchrist no, get a screen where it says my network generates automated queries, lemme find the screenshot
 
10:37 PM
Or boroughs. Some places have boroughs.
Loosianner has parishes.
Ett county (uttalas kâonti) är en administrativ enhet i Storbritannien, Irland, USA, Liberia, delar av Kanada och tidigare i Nya Zeeland, d.v.s. främst i engelskspråkiga länder. I Australien är countyn fastighetsindelningsenheter. County är det engelska ordet för grevskap (efter count = greve), och det brukar också översättas så för Storbritannien och Irland, men inte för USA och Kanada. Det svenska ordet län brukar översättas till county på engelska, i varje fall i Sverige och Storbritannien. Brittiska grevskap liknar Sveriges län men är mindre till ytan. USA:s countyn liknar mer Sverige...
 
Wow.
 
@JohanLarsson Do you use userscripts?
 
trying to make sense of Wireshark
@Cerberus not sure, don't know what they are
have adblock and something else I think
 
Ah, so Wireshark is the cause?
 
10:41 PM
No, started Wireshark to try to figure out what is going on
but have never used it really so mostly just scrolling around in the log
 
The people trapped up in the mountains are managing to get videos out.
Really shows why there is no hope of getting vehicles up there.
That was yesterday.
BTW, my landline came back today.
 
11:04 PM
Oh man @Robusto. I can't wait for the next episode. Lucky you will know tomorrow. What a buildup. So much buzz. I overheard that the next episode got leaked on Reddit via YouTube. NO SPOILERS ahead, obviously I knew better than watch it. I only checked if the first three words in the top comment were "what a scam" or "this is fake". But they were "I like how", and that was my ticket out of Reddit for the next three days. But what a buildup. It better be good, damn.
I will leave this here, though.
Allegedly Aaron Paul posted this to his instagram.
 
Who?
 
The guy on the right.
He plays Jesse on the show.
 
Ah.
And "I knew better than watch it" or "I knew better than to watch it"?
 
That is actually one show you'd really like, Cerberus.
@Cerberus Good question. Next question.
 
Is it?
 
11:15 PM
It really is.
 
What is it about?
Is it about Latin and/or dog sex?
 
A high-school chemistry teacher who gets diagnosed with cancer and in order to provide for his family after he's gone, he starts cooking meth.
 
Ah, that one.
I have heard about it.
 
@Cerberus have you heard about dogging?
 
But that was years ago.
@JohanLarsson No?
 
11:17 PM
Yeah. Honestly. You should watch it. Even my wife is hooked now. She refused for so long. But now she just can't stop.
 
So what's so good about it?
 
Well, forgive me the dumb answer, but everything.
It really is true.
 
OK got it.
My brother was once addicted to Lost...
 
From the cinematography to the music to the acting.
I don't even need to mention the writing. It is stellar.
 
@Cerberus I did not like it that much
 
11:18 PM
If it were a medieval book, you'd be studying it back and forth, drooling.
 
Dogging, or Reg's series?
@RegDwighт So it's not?
 
@Cerberus the series, only heard about dogging
 
Yeah really, Johan is the only person so far who didn't like it. But it appears he doesn't like it for the reasons I like it for.
 
What genre is it?
 
Drama.
Dark comedy.
 
11:18 PM
@JohanLarsson Ah OK.
 
Suspense. Tension.
The genre is pure, distilled goodness.
You wouldn't expect it.
 
As long as it's not patriotic or heroic?
 
Not from the description, not from nothing. It will sweep you away.
@Cerberus hah fuck that. No way.
 
I did not hate it, easy to find a worse series. I classify it as time meh spent watching it.
 
@JohanLarsson but only starting with the second season, right?
 
11:20 PM
I have to say the story doesn't sound super interesting.
 
Yeah it does not.
 
@JohanLarsson Why didn't you like it?
 
@RegDwighт think so, started to get annoying at some point
 
And does it have a lot of cliffhangers or unending sub-plots, like the Game of Thrones?
 
Here's the actual thing, Cerberus. It's a show where the protagonist slowly, very slowly turns into the antagonist. And you start questioning who you're rooting for and why. It's peculiar. One of a kind.
 
11:21 PM
I see.
 
@Cerberus no. It has a cliffhanger here and there, but not for the sake of having a cliffhanger. It all makes sense.
 
Good.
 
And again, since the general story arc is sort of the premise, it doesn't go on forever.
Only three episodes left, in fact.
And then it's gone. Forever.
It will shine briefly and then vanish.
 
@RegDwighт I don't know whether that is an entirely new plotline, but sure, it can be interesting.
Then what will you do?
 
@Cerberus It's not entirely new, of course. But really superbly executed down to the minutest detail.
 
11:23 PM
Huddle up and cry?
 
@Cerberus I will be very satisfied. Happy.
 
@Cerberus I don't remember really but it felt like this Jesse character was constantly screaming and there was stress etc. It got old for me.
 
Won't they make a second season with a different character with a similar theme?
@JohanLarsson Noted.
 
@Cerberus no. And there are five seasons. But only a dozen episodes each.
 
Pourquoi pas?
 
11:24 PM
And each season has its own arc within the general arc.
I can't praise it too much. Impossible.
Rob recommended it to me and I was meh.
 
@Cerberus did you like GoT?
 
I then recommended it to my wife and she was meh.
 
@JohanLarsson Meh.
 
And now here we are all, watching.
 
Someone recommended it to me years ago. How old is it?
 
11:25 PM
They do like one season a year, so five or six years.
 
OK.
 
But the entire show is only two years. The story arc.
 
@Cerberus good way of summing it up imo.
 
Haha. You felt the same way about the GoT?
 
And it's not too much action or suspense for the lack of suspense. In fact many episodes are seemingly about nothing. Very slow. But then you look back and realize how incredibly much has actually happened.
 
11:26 PM
@Cerberus yeah, looked good but got boring
 
Aug 19 at 13:13, by RegDwighт
Breaking Bad is pure, distilled, concentrated, relentless, breathtaking, inevitable, vile, mindblowing, subtle, discreet, meticulous, elegant, slow character development.
 
Same here.
 
Also don't like when the product is showing in American stuff
 
@RegDwighт Is it like the characters in this chat room?
 
Teehee.
 
11:28 PM
@JohanLarsson Haha, they have "product placement"?
 
Breaking Bad? Not once.
 
All the Starks were always drinking Pepsi and the Lannisters Coca Cola.
Then what does Johan mean?
 
I couldn't name one brand of anything on that show, at gunpoint.
 
The meth?
 
@Cerberus like this Breaking Bad, when the first season is successful it becomes sellable and new seasons are written.
 
11:29 PM
Actually that's sort of the opposite of what happened. The first season fell prey to the writer's strike. So it's only nine episodes. 40 minutes each.
 
The series itself is a product and when it shows it is not nice imo, not art.
 
At this point I really have no idea what Johan is talking about.
 
Especially since, again, the whole story was laid out from the start.
It can't be extended.
 
ok I was wrong!
 
11:31 PM
I'm not saying that since I don't know what you're saying.
 
to me it felt like it was being extended
 
Anyway. My only point here is, if you ever fire up a TV again, if you had to watch just one show, it better be this one.
@JohanLarsson I've now watched it start to almost finish, thrice, and if anything it was rushed in places.
Though in the context of Breaking Bad, "rushed" takes on a whole different meaning. It's not LotR rushed.
Ima go AFK now. Gave you enough food for thought.
 
@Cerberus give it a watch and tell us what you think, there are worse things to watch for sure.
@RegDwighт did you like GoT?
 
@JohanLarsson I understand what you mean.
I lost connection, somehow.
@RegDwighт I wouldn't watch it on a television, but OK, noted.
I'll put it on my list.
Thrice is a lot!
 
@Cerberus I remember so little from Breaking Bad so it is a bit scary to write about it. I remember feeling annoyed though.
I liked The Wire
 
11:42 PM
Why annoyed?
Even during the first season?
 
don't remember when it started, first season was probably ok
 
@Cerberus yeah I'm watching it online.
@Cerberus BTW, now that the show is done and finished, even a cliffhanger or two don't make a difference since you just go on to the next episode right away.
@JohanLarsson I haven't watched GoT.
No spoilers. I will.
 
@RegDwighт It really sucks when that important girl dies.
 
I don't spoil, I forget things :D
 
Oops!
 
11:47 PM
The military rescued 1200 by air today in Boulder County alone. Biggest airlift since Katrina.
 
Major spoiler: in GoT, every dies all the time, no biggie.
 
@Cerberus Martin never kills important girls.
At least, not for long.
 
Oh, that important girl. Well okay the case is settled now I don't even need to watch it anymore and can spend the time watching BB from the very beginning a fourth time.
 
In The Game of Thrones, dead main characters don't count as spoilers.
 
They do if they smell.
 
11:48 PM
Did I mention I was outta here?
 
@tchrist Uhh how about the ending of the third season, or what was it? I haven't see it.
Really?
Hmm that's kind of nice.
And also a huge spoiler.
Thanks!!
 
Well, yes.
 
@tchrist are you a GoT fan?
 
But otherwise you’d’ve been right.
 
Better delete that line.
 
11:49 PM
What line?
 
Good.
The waterline.
 
Don’t talk to me of waterlines.
 
How does your cat like the basement?
 
Moist.
 
He likes it moist, okay.
 
11:50 PM
I try not to have him camping out down there, and he isn't.
But the choppers bother him.
 
He wouldn't want to.
 
Very low, very loud. Shakes house.
 
@RegDwighт Want me to tell you thumbs up or down after I see it?
 
So they have an estimated cost to repair our missing roads and bridges: $150 million. Just in this county.
 
Yeah, infrastructure is expensive.
 
11:53 PM
I can google again, was an issue with logging in to google account, chances are google spammed themselves
 
Not having it is even worse.
 
Especially if the job goes to the councillor's friend's company...
@JohanLarsson Yay!
 
It had better. There is so much work to do that anybody who isn’t doing the work that can is a slacker.
 
Like those chatting on the Internet?
 
I did a lot of work this morning clearing out the basement.
Burly men get here at 7am. Just couldn’t get them today.
And I can’t rebuild missing bridges.
 
11:56 PM
What will they do?
 
They will cut out the waterlogged carpet and carry it out.
 
Ah.
So soon?
So the worst is past you?
 
Probably. They will see if they can save it.
Yes, the worst is past, but it rained today again and will rain tonight and tomorrow probably too. Just not biblically this time. Maybe.
 
> [NSA chief Alexander is] fond of corny jokes and puns and likes to play pool, golf, and Bejeweled Blitz, the addictive puzzle game, on which he says he routinely scores more than 1 million points.
 
But it’s starting to mildew and that is a health hazzard.
 
11:58 PM
Impressive.
@tchrist You mean mould in your cellar?
So the water is gone already from there?
 
We have 100–150 miles of roads destroyed.
Yes and yes.
 
OK.
> When he was running the Army's Intelligence and Security Command, Alexander brought many of his future allies down to Fort Belvoir for a tour of his base of operations, a facility known as the Information Dominance Center. It had been designed by a Hollywood set designer to mimic the bridge of the starship Enterprise, complete with chrome panels, computer stations, a huge TV monitor on the forward wall, and doors that made a "whoosh" sound when they slid open and closed.
