::Hears Math guy say "Infinity"::
 
user228700
::Runs away::
 
I think it could be cool for some group invention/research article...
 
rob
@Kaumudi.H If it's infinity that worries you, shouldn't you run away for ever?
 
@EmilioPisanty What do you mean 'signaling top'?
 
user228700
@rob Nope, that doesn't seem like a good idea at all.
 
4:02 PM
"the site's twitter account" <== but this doesn't make sense
 
user228700
I'm gonna run away for a little bit and then just stop and settle down over there.
 
@Hey-men-whatsup whether it makes sense or not, it exists: twitter.com/stackphysics
 
i means as ads
 
@DanielSank A pair-of-black-boxes at-but-just-below the 'signalling top' would be one for which any increase in the correlations would make it signalling.
i.e. under special relativity it would break causality.
 
@EmilioPisanty ah, I wonder if that's why questions suddenly go viral ...
 
user228700
4:04 PM
OK, I'm off. Byebye :-)
 
@JohnRennie no, I think the blame for that can be squarely pinned on the Hot Network Questions sidebar on the right of the page
 
user228700
(Hope ur laptop gets to u soon, @JohnR! :-)
 
@Kaumudi.H Me too! Bye :-)
 
@JohnRennie Unfortunately that's very hard to diagnose

Q: Please open the Hot Network Questions to auditing via the Data Explorer

E.P.One of the contentious issues on today's Stack Exchange is the Hot Network Questions sidebar, which can drive a lot of traffic to junk-food questions that can be very poor fits to the sites that host them (and, because of that, it can land a ton of rep on askers and answerers that by normal site ...

 
The tweets are filled with some "Can you answer...." while it could be interesting for things such "Do you know that ...." lmao
 
4:07 PM
But if you think it's a problem then I still think this is the correct solution:

Q: Breaking the HNQ feedback loop on bad questions

E.P.The Hot Network Questions sidebar is a bit of a contentious issue, because it tends to promote questions that are often perceived as 'cheap', of relatively low quality, or on the fringes of topicality for the site that hosts them. One reason for this is that they're subject to a feedback loop: t...

@DanielSank 8-|
> In 1994 two physicists, Sandu Popescu and Daniel Rohrlich, formulated an explicit set of correlated measurements that respect the "non-signalling" principle, yet give $S_\mathrm{CHSH}=4$: the algebraic maximum.
In theoretical physics, quantum nonlocality most commonly refers to the phenomenon by which measurements made at a microscopic level contradict a collection of notions known as local realism that are regarded as intuitively true in classical mechanics. Rigorously, quantum nonlocality refers to quantum mechanical predictions of many-system measurement correlations that cannot be simulated by any local hidden variable theory. Many entangled quantum states exhibit such correlations, as demonstrated by Bell's theorem, and as verified by experiment. Experiments have generally favoured quantum mechanics...
 
4:22 PM
@EmilioPisanty Why 8-| ?
 
@DanielSank I just didn't know what to make of your comment
figured you'd expand it a bit
 
@EmilioPisanty Well, I asked for a definition, you provided it.
 
@DanielSank hah fair enough
btw how diggable do you find this?
 
@EmilioPisanty I dig it.
Oooh, it gets better as it goes!

I could dance to this.
 
@DanielSank I'm struggling to not dance at my desk
 
4:28 PM
Ho damn it gets even better!
 
@DanielSank, That will work. Question/discussion about my post [here](http://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/307808/probability-of-two-vibrating-beams-touching) when you have the time:

One of your concerns on my problem formulation was on using the Gaussian distribution for the amplitude. It admittedly was pretty ad-hoc. All I could find in literature on using the Equipartition Theorem to determine the deflection due to thermal noise gave me the mean square deflection. Whether that mean square is of the amplitude of the vibration or of all its points in time as it's vibrating back
 
@dbassett The link didn't autoformat because you have a line break. For some reason, if you use line breaks in chat, all formatting just dies.
@dbassett The gaussian distribution is correct, but you have to understand what it means.
The position of the beams is Gaussian distributed but that's a distribution over realizations of the experiment or over time.
But you can't take a distribution over time for both beams and compute the overlap and say that this is the probability that they collide.
At least, I don't think so.
It might work out that way, but I'm pretty sure you need to think about the time dependence.
For example, if I start the two beams with deflections very close together, the probability that they collide soon is high.
The only case in which they will never collide is if they're so far apart that their deflections cannot cause them to overlap.
Otherwise, given enough time, they will eventually collide.
 
@DanielSank Hm, OK. But if I know that the position of the beams in time follows a Gaussian distribution, I should be able to work out what the probability of any amplitude is, right? And if I know the probability of the amplitude of both adjacent cantilevers and their phase angles, then I can work out a collision probability, right?
 
You can probably solve this problem exactly in the large damping limit where the harmonic motion kind of doesn't matter.
@dbassett I don't understand what you're asking, I'm sorry.
"...position of the beams in time follows a Gaussian distribution..." <--- huh?
All you can say is that if you measure a beam's position many times over a very long time, the histogram of measurement results is Gaussian.
 
@JohnRennie At 16, I might still qualify for teenagerness.
 
4:33 PM
@DanielSank I thought I was just restating what you said.
 
@dbassett Yes but I can't tell if we're communicating clearly.
Let me as something, as you in a weak or strong damping limit?
 
@dbassett I'm going to beat a hasty retreat from the hordes of teenagers while I'm still able :-)
 
@EmilioPisanty I can't follow the lyrics :-(
My parser is too slow.
 
@DanielSank yeah, some of it goes pretty fast
the one at 12:00 onwards is pretty damn fast
 
@EmilioPisanty The problem is the sound-to-discrete-words parser.
I'm bad at that even in English.
 
4:36 PM
@DanielSank yeah, but it's easier if you're fully fluent in the language
 
@EmilioPisanty Yeah. I can follow lyrics in Spanish if I read them first or if they're really slow.
For example, this is totally doable:
 
@DanielSank That's a good question. I would think a weak damping limit. This problem is based partly off of AFM cantilevers that vibrate due to thermal motion, and tend to vibrate quite freely. In fact the vibration is critical for how the AFM works, because they interpret the interruptions of those vibrations to understand what the cantilever tip is touching.
 
@DanielSank track 5 has some awesome relatively slow lyrics if I recall correctly
@DanielSank yeah, well, those are some sloooooooooooooooow lyrics
naw, even that is slow
 
@EmilioPisanty What is this devilry?
 
@DanielSank what, ska?
 
4:39 PM
You don't just show up, unannounced, and ska-ify Ibrahim Ferrer!
It's just not right!
 
@DanielSank lol
 
vzn
@EmilioPisanty interesting thx for sharing. (PR box named after the authors Popescu-Rohrlich). also as pointed out by various authors the bell threshhold seems to have a natural connection to quantum cryptography suggesting something fundamental about it. etc
 
@dbassett Ah. You wouldn't happen to know the Q value of those cantelevers?
 
@DanielSank so I take it you don't find this amusing
 
4:41 PM
El Carretero is one of my favorite songs.
I like this very much.
Just don't f--- with Ibrahim Ferrer's angelic voice ;-P
 
@DanielSank Q value? The spring constant? I.e. the distance the tip deflects for a known perpendicular force on the tip, in the limit as the force goes to zero?
 
funny, I think this one's been changed a good bit more than the gardenias
 
@EmilioPisanty Yeah, but Ferrer isn't the vocalist on the famous Buena Vista recording.
@dbassett Q is the number of free oscillations an oscillator undergoes before it's energy is gone.
In physics and engineering the quality factor or Q factor is a dimensionless parameter that describes how under-damped an oscillator or resonator is, and characterizes a resonator's bandwidth relative to its center frequency. Higher Q indicates a lower rate of energy loss relative to the stored energy of the resonator; the oscillations die out more slowly. A pendulum suspended from a high-quality bearing, oscillating in air, has a high Q, while a pendulum immersed in oil has a low one. Resonators with high quality factors have low damping so that they ring or vibrate longer. == Explanatio...
The way to think about your problem is very different depending on whether Q is high or low.
I have to go to work. We can discuss more later :-)
 
@DanielSank in which case I imagine it's this that you will object to
ooooh, yeah, that's got some nice pace to it
 
@DanielSank OK. I'll post a couple more questions as follow-up, you can take a look at them when you have time.
 
4:47 PM
@dbassett If you post questions on the main site, ping me here and link.
ACK! Mods! Run!
::swims into den and closes door::
 
@DanielSank Since when does a octopus' den have a door?
@DanielSank lol, nice title
 
@ACuriousMind erm, "door" = "movable rocks".
 
@DanielSank Yeah, I think it was this track that I liked the most from that Cumbiakistán record. It's got pretty slow + pretty awesome lyrics.
 
5:03 PM
fellas
I feel bad for closing questions about supersymmetry by new users :-(
I want them to stay...
my back is killing me
i should buy a new chair
 
Hey @AccidentalFourierTransform btw, do you know anyone in the Sants or Poble Sec areas looking for a flatmate?
(only location constraint is relatively easy access to Pl. Espanya, Pl. Catalunya, or Sants Estació)
 
@EmilioPisanty no, but I can ask in my class' whatsapp group
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform excellent ;-)
 
give me a sec
 
come around to ICFO any time, btw
though there's not that much supersymmetry here tbh
 
5:21 PM
@EmilioPisanty I've asked already. When/if someone knows something they'll tell me and I'll ping you
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform excellent, thanks
Also, @AccidentalFourierTransform, a really mundane question: where can I find lined notebooks and A4 pads?
and/or a really large OfficeMax / OfficeDepot kinda store
I looked in several stores and they just had plain white and really strong squares
=(
 
@EmilioPisanty you can rest assured I'll go, i really want to. Im kinda busy for the next few weeks bc of my master's thesis, but when things have calmed down I'll go, it'll be fun :-)
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform yeah, no pressure ;-)
 
@EmilioPisanty huh, anywhere I guess
 
there's an open day being planned but I don't know the date yet, will tell you when I do
 
5:26 PM
I only use plain white paper, but you should be able to find lined notebooks in most stores
you can try carrefour maybe
@EmilioPisanty cool, thanks
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform that's what I thought, but I looked in three separate ones and lined paper was strongly discriminated against =(
 
@EmilioPisanty so, you're in Barcelona already
how do you like it?
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform it's nice =)
 
where do you live?
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform I'm staying at a friend's in Poble Sec
 
5:31 PM
that's a nice area, I live in Hospitalet de Llobregat
five minutes from my uni
cant complain :-)
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform you're at UB, right?
 
@DanielSank OK, I see what you mean by Q factor. That wasn't a term I'm familiar with (I come from a chemical engineering background). My case is definitely under-damped, in fact for all practical purposes the Q factor could be considered to be infinite, or in equivalent terms the damping coefficient %D% would be vanishingly small.
 
vzn
@DanielSank think you have good pts but think (poppers) falsifiability is more of an abstraction for new theories, a bit too stringent at beginning, and also "simpler theory" criteria may be incompatible with falsification. (eg) it is not obvious to begin with that copernican ellipses are simpler than epicycles. also relativity is not simpler than the newtonian universe. etc. as for EPR, yes now aged and dusty at over 8 decades old. but still think they will "eventually have the last laugh"...
 
5:47 PM
anyone knows whats the deal with zaq?
zaq, next door to Alice
150 3 4 13
is it a bot?
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform Why do you think so?
 
idk, very active voter
has no answers/questions
never comments anywhere, has raised many flags
 
Ah, it's Normal Human. Yes, I believe some actions from that account are automated, or at least they find what they want to flag/vote on with some scripts. [this is not moderator knowledge, I simply recall some of their meta posts on another site]
 
vzn
6:05 PM
@AccidentalFourierTransform hi whats your thesis on? plz let me know if you might have any interest in this meta.physics.stackexchange.com/questions/7783/…
@AccidentalFourierTransform yep robotics is quite the field these days. increasingly wild headlines monetarywatch.com/2017/01/… ... :o
 
@vzn hi. To be honest, Im not really sure what my thesis is about :-P something about the symmetries of asymptotically flat spaces (BMS symmetry). Right now, all Im doing is playing around with the spherical harmonics in 4d
kinda boring
i didnt choose the topic, my adviser did
about the AMA, i fear that I have absolutely nothing to offer
i havent done anything interesting yet
im just an average student
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform yeah academia/ physics/ science etc can be challenging...
 
I dont think people will want to ask me questions
also, im here in the chat all the time, so if someone wanted to know something about me, they would have asked already
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform invitations are mainly based on affinity to physics & showing up in the chat room...
@AccidentalFourierTransform exactly so it wouldnt be any big deal to schedule an hour sometime then right? :P can assure you will for (1) ask you questions... dont think getting into a Msc program is "average student"... also practice in public speaking etc...
 
@vzn sorry but ill have to decline your offer. I like the idea of having AMA's here, and if I did one the whole thing would lose credibility. I want serious AMA's. Mine would be a joke.
 
vzn
6:22 PM
@AccidentalFourierTransform (sigh) self-deprecation, somewhat surprisingly, one of our biggest obstacles wrt the prj/ effort. am sure it would be no more a joke than your Msc...! youd be in excellent company... its your choice, no need to respond immediately, plz consider it
 
well, maybe when ive finished my masters thesis
for now, it just makes no sense
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform you seem to like chat. youve got great site rep. think youre qualified. there is very strong community support for the project. however we have no other volunteers/ suggestions right now. :( meta.physics.stackexchange.com/questions/9068/… let me know if theres anything that might change your mind. think of it as practice for your defense, wink... & plz upvote the meta posts at least if you like the idea in general...
 
well if I change my mind I'll let you know :-)
 
I am thinking on this question:
-2
Q: Show that the supersymmetric yang-mills theory is invariant

Ozorio NettoProve that under the supersymmetry transformations: $\delta_\xi A_\mu = \bar{\xi} \gamma^\mu \Psi$ $\delta_\xi \lambda_\alpha = -\frac{1}{2} F_{\mu\nu}\gamma^{\mu\nu} \xi$ the lagrangian $\mathcal{L}_{SYM} = -\frac{1}{4}\mbox{Tr} F_{\mu\nu} F^{\mu\nu} -\frac{1}{2}\mbox{Tr}\bar{\Psi} \gamma^\...

It was written probably by a physics student.
He is hardcore in physics.
Why he can't formulate a round question?
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform ok. thx for considering it. admittedly it seems to bring out a lot of mixed emotions in invitees, youre certainly not the 1st on that. to me it can be low key. not much different than regular chat. hanging out with supportive cohorts in the hbar. "show and tell". hey, if nobody else does it am gonna have to ask 0----7 next, 1st chance! everyones hereby been warned! :P
 
6:36 PM
@vzn sure, I'll keep that in mind
@peterh yeah, I didn't like closing that question :-/
2 hours ago, by AccidentalFourierTransform
I feel bad for closing questions about supersymmetry by new users :-(
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform I voted to reopen, but I am surprised. This writing style is coming mainly from the deeply undergrad region.
 
@peterh i dont know... reopening that question would be kinda unfair to the rest of users
feel free to edit it though. Maybe you can help make it on-topic
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform btw need favor, do you have a little )( time to edit the meta post on the subj? to add secrets talk? think it reqs 2k rep, dont have it, have asked repeatedly, nobody else around to do it, can dig up info if youll do it :|
 
which meta post?
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform the one just linked above announcing the talks by DS. is there an "edit" button on it for you?

Q: guest chat session top guest wishlist/ call for desired speakers

vznthe new Physics SE guest chat sessions have gone generally well this summer (some brief summary/ history); we now have 3 basically successful events with talented/ qualified speakers and am personally pleased/ happy with the outcome so far which for me is mostly "better than expected" overall. it...

this one?
yes, I can edit it
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform no this meta.physics.stackexchange.com/questions/7783/… ... can you edit it? need to add a talk by secret that was carried out but never added yet, same fmt as others
 
yes, I can edit that one too.
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform ok just need to add his name & 2 links, 1 to his meta post announcing talk, 2nd to the chat transcript. ok w you? if so let me dig up links
 
yes, sure
post here whatever you want me to include
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform plz put it in the current fmt of the post. name, meta annoucement link, final chat. heres his meta intro. let me dig up link to transcript next meta.physics.stackexchange.com/questions/9056/…
 
6:50 PM
whats the fmt lol
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform see post its easy. plz link to their SE profile as their name. add him at end after slereah (prior guest to him)
 
@vzn ok i think i did it
please check that i didnt mess it up
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform ok perfect thx much man! looks great! (ok yeah oops closer look latest guest goes at top like you did it) :) ... ps if you do a session it wont be much harder wink :P
 
@JohnRennie The amp sounds great with the new speakers!
 
vzn
@BernardoMeurer hi, if you like big speakers... are you in lisbon? do you ever go to clubs around there? it can be fun, some of the best equipment around, esp base-thumping :) o_O
 
7:04 PM
@vzn In Lisbon, yeah
No clubs, I'm claustrophobic
I'm also not a base fan :P
I like mids and highs
I got a pair of B&W 686 S2
But I'm finding them too aggressive on the highs
 
vzn
@BernardoMeurer wow surprised! dude try it out, live a little, you might have some fun, meet some girl(s) etc :P
 
@vzn Relativity doesn't have to be simpler than Newtonian mechanics because relativity gets the right answer where Newtonian mechanics does not.
 
@vzn No, you don't get it, I can't go to clubs
 
vzn
all about the bass, bass, bass, no treble metrolyrics.com/all-about-that-bass-lyrics-meghan-trainor.html
@BernardoMeurer why not
 
I can't stand up for too long without damaging my ankle, and I can't be in crowded closed spaces without feeling like I'm going to die
 
7:09 PM
@vzn Phobias are not things you can overcome by "living a little".
 
@dbassett Ok, I'll have to think about this a bit later.
 
Because I got hit by a car that destroyed my right ankle
Which is why I limp like an old man every other day
 
@vzn Anyway, who am I to tell you not to make wild unfounded speculation? :-)
 
vzn
@DanielSank anyway it shows that mere simplicity (aka occams razor) is not a very great/ general criteria in physics for new theories etc ... has some )( validity but needs some nuance... just got into a argument on that on reddit with someone so have a great link on that handy :) :P scienceblogs.com/developingintelligence/2007/05/14/…
 
@BernardoMeurer ouch, that sucks
do you have any expectations of full recovery?
or you'll have problems in your ankle for all your life?
 
vzn
7:12 PM
@DanielSank lol you & ACM tell me that all the time :( :P ... (ah, admittedly with good reason!)
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform Iff I did a surgery on it it could get better, but $$$. If I chop it off and get a robot one it would be more likely for it to work fully normal again
So yes, I'll have problems with it all my life
 
@BernardoMeurer and probably cheaper >_<
 
vzn
@BernardoMeurer you dont have to dance, they are fun places, just hang out by the bar & look cool, wink ... did you go to clubs before you got injured? they are for "young ppl"... :)
 
@vzn Uh, yes it is.
A theory has to first make correct predictions, and second be as simple as possible.
 
@BernardoMeurer where did that happen? here in Portugal or back there in Brazil?
 
7:14 PM
@vzn I'm more of a bar kind of guy
@AccidentalFourierTransform Back in Rio
 
vzn
@DanielSank how many physicists talk about occams razor? are they aware of its (ancient) history? you who snif at 80yr old physics papers by einstein?
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform Hahahahahaha
 
@BernardoMeurer so... I guess you got no money from the insurance?
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform Nope, my insurance only pays if I die
 
vzn
@BernardoMeurer think you should (encourage you) just go to hear the music/ sound systems occasionally. it seems like clubs have some of the best. sometimes sounds/ feels even better than amphitheatres with more $$$ because its small/ enclosed.
 
7:15 PM
@vzn I "snif" at the paper because you were using it as evidence that "quantum mechanics" is wrong, while the paper's description of quantum mechanics is out of date.
 
@BernardoMeurer well not your insurance, but that of the guy that run over you
 
"Quantum mechanics" does not mean what it meant 80 years ago. Simple as that.
 
vzn
@DanielSank their (prescient!) concerns are not out of date and not (fully) resolved 80 yrs later. there are cases in science history of very long scientific debate that take long to resolve. it took 2K YEARS to validate the atomic hypothesis by greeks. etc!
 
Your entire argument that QM is wrong is based on the fact that you're using a notion of quantum mechanics that is wrong, but that's not interesting because physicists already know that it wrong and have updated it.
@vzn You're going to have to give detailed, specific evidence to support that claim.
 
@vzn Dude, don't you understand that I can't? It literally makes me unable to walk the next day if I stand up too long. It gives me an inexplicable panic to be in a place that is small and enclosed. I would love to go clubbing with my friends. I can't.
@AccidentalFourierTransform Hit and run
 
vzn
7:17 PM
@DanielSank announcement/ newsflash! QM IS WRONG!!!
 
You used the term "occam's razor", not me. I said theories should be as simple as possible.
I don't think occam's razor is really the right metaphor here.
 
@BernardoMeurer jeez, that really sucks :-(
 
vzn
@BernardoMeurer fyi there are chairs in clubs :) ... didnt go to clubs much when younger, think they are cool, think it was something of a waste! up to you man
 
@BernardoMeurer tbh, going to a bar is usually much more fun than going to a club
 
vzn
@DanielSank its the std concept for what youre talking about. if physicists have some other formulation, would luv to hear it
 
7:19 PM
@AccidentalFourierTransform Yeah it's a pain in the ass ankle tbh
 
vzn
@DanielSank am not disagreeing however it takes years to formulate new theories, sometimes decades, sometimes centuries...
 
I like bars, my neighbour says I'm an alcoholic
Not true though ::sips beer::
 
By the way, @vzn, Occam's razor is attributed to a gentleman from the 1200's. That's hardly "ancient".
 
@BernardoMeurer ^
 
vzn
7:20 PM
@DanielSank lol so then only about 10x! older than EPR :P
 
@vzn Yes, you are "disagreeing" with me in that you're making unfounded claims about physics that are incorrect.
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform That's cuba libre for me
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform Meh, that depends on the bar and the club you're comparing ;) I also think it's more about the people you're with than the location you're at
 
If I smell cuba libre it reminds me of that one time I almost drowned in a toilet
 
vzn
@DanielSank yikes thats a hanging crime around these here parts :o o_O
 
7:21 PM
I swear the toilet was attacking me
 
@vzn Yes. This is a physics chat room.
4
In physics, we do not tolerate unfounded assertions.
 
@BernardoMeurer that's all spirits for me
I can only enjoy beer and wine
and gin tonic
 
vzn
@DanielSank lol thx for the info there (looks like you defn moved the rocks away from your cave) :P
 
Sure. Any time ;-)
 
@ACuriousMind sure, it is always about the people youre with. But in a bar you can get to actually enjoy with them. In a club most people get lost, you cannot talk, etc
im not saying its not fun
 
vzn
7:24 PM
@BernardoMeurer reminds me of this song check out the (wild!) video & tell me what you think wink metrolyrics.com/i-took-a-pill-in-ibiza-lyrics-mike-posner.html
 
I have this thing, I'm not very good in one-to-one conversation unless I'll get sex out of it
generally I'm better at talking in a group
 
vzn
@BernardoMeurer lol & notice all that has absolutely no relevance to clubs :P
 
@BernardoMeurer youre nailing this 1to1 conv with me, and the chances of sex are rather low
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform Never "lost" someone in a club :D
 
I mean, sex is not off the table
 
7:25 PM
@AccidentalFourierTransform You'll be passive FYI
 
but its unlikely
@ACuriousMind to be fair, it is usually me who gets lost
the irish goodbye
 
@vzn Seems like a song about first world problems to me
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform You're...worryingly inclined to talk to Bernardo about sex :P If this goes any further I'll request that you take your cybering to some non-SE channel.
 
@ACuriousMind He keeps bringing up sex with me
Even though I have a voluptuous foopa right now
 
vzn
@BernardoMeurer lol exactly (luv that expr), & we all live in 1st world :P
 
7:27 PM
@vzn I've been in the first world for <6 months
Europe is like those tampon ads, everyone is happy and free
3
I'm more used to having to fight off a rabid monkey for cheese
 
vzn
@ACuriousMind guess you havent been to a really good one yet :P
 
What the fuck
 
vzn
@BernardoMeurer & now youre fighting rabid cyber-monkeys in chat. 1st world problems
 
@BernardoMeurer That's...an unusual association :D
 
7:31 PM
@ACuriousMind Perfectly accurate
@vzn I'm fighting my chemistry professor on his insane syllabus
 
vzn
@BernardoMeurer lol hes probably used it before...
 
Damn, this is a good turntable
 
@BernardoMeurer ah, I wish a had a turntable
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform didnt know youre a blonde :P
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform Today I finished 6 months of saving for my audio setup :)
Got speakers and a turntable, John Rennie helped and gave me an Amplifier he had :)
I got it to celebrate having passed all my subjects
 
7:37 PM
@vzn and the carpet matches the drapes ;-)
 
Oh god
 
@BernardoMeurer Id love to have very good audio equipment
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform It's all I use my money on :)
Literally
 
All my money goes into audio
Yes
and booze
 
vzn
7:40 PM
@BernardoMeurer not following is that a bad thing?
 
all I have is these cheap sennheiser headphones and half a bottle of cheap wine
 
vzn
@AccidentalFourierTransform ah so you are also into interior decorating
 
@vzn That means I'm the one doing the work so to speak
 
update: a quarter of a bottle of cheap wine
 
@AccidentalFourierTransform I have, well, do you really want to know? :P
 
vzn
7:41 PM
@BernardoMeurer lol welcome to masculinity
 
::looks at assorted booze on the balcony::
@BernardoMeurer Can we...not continue this train of thought? :P
