@Tinkeringbell Apparently, they're granting me a gift card for it. mhm, no need.
 
10:34 AM
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact Well, gift cards are always nice (unless they're for totally useless shops/things) XD
 
@Tinkeringbell Don't know yet.
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda Not with me.
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda Quotes are subjective. Quote quality can not be quantified
@SPArcheon But the Center Party approves of it.

The Four Evils campaign (Chinese: 除四害; pinyin: Chú Sì Hài), was one of the first actions taken in the Great Leap Forward in China from 1958 to 1962. Authorities targeted four pests for elimination: rats, flies, mosquitoes, and sparrows. The extermination of sparrows – also known as the smash sparrows campaign (Chinese: 打麻雀运动; pinyin: dǎ máquè yùndòng) or the eliminate sparrows campaign (Chinese: 消灭麻雀运动; pinyin: xiāomiè máquè yùndòng) – resulted in severe ecological imbalance, being one of the causes of the Great Chinese Famine of 1959–1961. In 1960 the campaign against sparrows ended and...
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact Oooh, exciting :P
 
@SPArcheon Signed by Mao, your great leader boasting with common sense.
> The party is known for [...] their proposal to shoot all wolves in Norway.
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact they too seem quite ahead in the race for the Idiot of the Century award...
 
@SPArcheon They just hate all nature and wildlife. A few days ago, their leading politicians (currently in the government), praised themselves for destroying nature.

~ Can't we be a bit moar talkative?
 
Whaddawannaknow?
 
12:44 PM
@Tinkeringbell All your secrets.
 
I don't think I have any...
Loads of things I don't share with random internet strangers but that aren't secrets (as real life people do know them?)
 
We aren't random. We are real people.
 
You're a random internet stranger. Always will be.
 
Kenny is no stranger after all these years.
 
Kenny is a bot. That's an even lower rank than 'random internet stranger', barely above "AI".
 
12:51 PM
Secret noted: The parrot doesn't like her friends that much.
 
No, I do like my friends very much. That's why random internet strangers are nowhere close to friends.
It's kinda preposterous to think that some text-based interaction in a chatroom can ever count as a friendship... A friendship is so much more than that!
 
1:16 PM
It is?
 
In my opinion, yes. I also find it kinda insulting to my real friends if some online internet stranger calls me 'their friend'.
As if the bar is that low...
 
You are their friend.
 
No, that's not how that works. You can't just 'claim' a friend like some object from lost-and-found.
I've put loads of work into cultivating the friendships I have, as did my friends. It's dismissive to discard all that and just say that a few typed characters on a screen constitute a friendship.
Then what are my friends supposed to be? Lovers? Family? That's not how ranking social relationships works...
 
1:32 PM
@Tinkeringbell We're no strangers to love
 
I didn't say that. Random internet strangers have life outside of the internet too, in which love can exist, that's not weird.
 
@Tinkeringbell I take it you know the rules, and so do I
 
I am now confused. Thank you, @Zoe.
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact You don't recognise the ballad I'm referencing?
 
1:38 PM
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact no, youtube.com/watch?v=yRKh34Ofg50
 
@Zoeisonstrike Disappointing.
Expand your catalogue.
 
> "I never stole no oxe nor cow
Nor never murdered any
But many wolves I did kill
Of a Valheim obsolete gameplay."

"For which I am condemnd to reforming,
Though guiltlesse I stand watching;
Deare gracious God, my soule receive!
For around me pink ponies are dancing."
 
@Zoeisonstrike Sure. When bothered by hormones, eat chocolate :P
 
@Tinkeringbell you should remove the "IF" clause, it is not needed.
 
1:47 PM
There is no if. only when.
 
@Tinkeringbell Hormones of love?
@SPArcheon lox, not ox.
And there are no cows in Valheim.
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact Yeah, that's practically what love is. Unless you want to get philosphical about it.
 
Best not fall in love with random internet strangers.
 
I don't see how that's possible...
Unless you're thinking of the kind of person that falls for scams XD
 
@Tinkeringbell yeah, they made that into a reality show too...
90 Day Fiancé is an American reality television series on TLC that follows couples who have applied for or received a K-1 visa, available uniquely to foreign fiancés of U.S. citizens, and therefore have 90 days to marry each other. The series debuted on January 12, 2014, and has run for 10 seasons.The series has over twenty spin-offs, including 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, which documents past 90 Day Fiancé couples after their marriage; 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, which follows couples who met online but have not yet started the K-1 visa process; and 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, a...
 
1:57 PM
@SPArcheon OOooh ugh. I much prefer watching 'Monsters Inside Me' and 'My 600lb life' if I have to watch TLC XD
 
@Tinkeringbell Average plot is "50+ years old rich guy find 20 years old girl on chat site that is totally not trying to get free living and money". I don't get why anyone would want to watch that.
 
@Tinkeringbell Then you have a limited understanding.
American TV is very exhausting.
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact Of love? Sure. Never had to suffer the hormonal imbalance, luckily :D
 
Either they shout for the entire show, or they never shut up. Or speak with a stupid «I am so cool, look at me» accent.
 
I mean, there's a bit of child-parent love but that's mostly just oxytocin so that doesn't count? :P
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact I mean, that's more than half of Dutch TV too :P
 
2:02 PM
@Tinkeringbell Remind me to never watch Dutch TV.
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact Worked out well for me :p
 
@Zoeisonstrike Not for me.
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact There are some rare gems. Mostly 'Even tot hier', which does a great job of being funny about the news of the past week.
 
Not that any way would’ve worked out. Anyway.
 
And there is a reboot of 'Ter land, Ter zee en in de lucht' in the making, which still would have to prove itself but the old episodes are mightily entertaining :D
 
2:03 PM
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact Sounds like a skill issue
 
@Tinkeringbell So like Nytt på nytt? From the 90s? Based on the BBC show?
@Zoeisonstrike Good for you, then.
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact Not really I think. Wikipedia tells me it's a spin-off of a BBC show. The Dutch spin-off of that same show is called 'Dit was het nieuws' ;)
And that's a very different format :)
 
This is two comedians who both make jokes about the news, but also funny songs, and there's usually some kind of 'quiz' with the audience where the winner gets to be 'almighty' and do something good for one of the unlucky guests they interviewed...
So they might make an item with a short interview with someone that can't celebrate the holidays for whatever reason (for example, poverty, so no money to buy gifts) in response to news that more people are visiting 'toy banks'. Then one of the comedians is also 'Head Pete' and goes to visit the family with toys at the end of the show, after the 'almighty' said 'I wish this family could celebrate Sinterklaas'...
 
5080 Nyhetskanalen?
No.
 
2:15 PM
I don't think the format has 'foreign versions'. ;)
Also darn... it's getting hot here. Sun is shining for the first time in ages and heating up the place XD
Few more days and it's time to get out the sunblockers again and put them on the windows.
 
I won't. I'm morbidly obese, my knees can barely handle a morning of gardening. If I want to end up permanently disabled, I should go ski.
(Spoiler: I don't want that).
 
Then you should lose weight. :)
 
Working on it. Slowly. But getting there. I managed to loose around 8kg over a year. Only 10 years to go.
Oh yay! Release date for Stardew Valley update is in. March 19th :D
Drat... that's PI Planning week. So more office days, less gaming time.
 
I lost 13 kg in 1 month.
 
2:22 PM
Yeah well we can't all be perfect.
 
Nobody is perfect.
 
Perhaps, though didn't he have his flaws too? Kinda hard to make a whole Odyssee about a perfect person...
 
Outis (a transliteration of the Ancient Greek pronoun Οὖτις = "nobody" or "no one") is an often used pseudonym that appeared famously in Classical Greek legends. Modern artists, writers, and others in public life have adopted the use of this pseudonym in order to hide their identity and it has been used for fictional characters as well. == Ancient Greek origin of the pseudonym == The Homeric hero Odysseus used the pseudonym "Outis" when he was fighting the Cyclops Polyphemus and the monster demanded his name. Odysseus replied instead that the pronoun was his name in order to trick the monster....
 
2:40 PM
The solution is no more food.
No more candy.
No more water.
I have a headache.
 
Yeah, if you don't drink water I can imagine the headache XD
I will go for good food, no candy, lots of water.
(for now at least, as it helps to prevent cravings for candy)
Also, 30 minutes of moderate movement a day :)
 
No, seriously. That's how I lost 13 kg. 10 kg in 4 days, then 3 more in the following days until a month had passed.
@Tinkeringbell 2 hours.
In BMI, I have only ever been overweight, but there was a time I had so little muscles the only way I could get out of the sofa was to roll out of it.
And if I ever fell on the ground, I really struggled to get back up from it. So better not fall outdoor... Which I did.
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact No. Government guidelines say 30 minutes, so I'm not doing a second more.
 
@Tinkeringbell 2 hours.
Minimum.
 
I do have muscle strenght, luckily :P I can get out of the sofa and get back up of the ground XD
I have to have muscle strength, I like to take baths XD Have to be able to get up out of those too :P
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact Says who? Because like I said, guidelines here are just 30 minutes for a healthy lifestyle.
 
2:47 PM
@Tinkeringbell Are you healthy?
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact No, because I haven't had a healthy lifestyle for ages :P
I'm changing that now though! :D
 
@Tinkeringbell Exactly. 2 hours.
 
No, that's not a healthy lifestyle.
 
30 minutes is required to maintain a minimum healthy lifestyle. If you want to become healthy, you will need more.
 
Well I guess I'm giving up then. 30 minutes already takes ages.
No skiing ever for me.
 
The poor seat would crack before I'd even get started.
 
@Tinkeringbell Doesn't have to be 2 hours uninterrupted.
Just 2 hours in total. Over an entire day.
Getting up from the chair to do a few jumps every second hour, would be beneficial.
 
Hmm. I'd have to start timing my walks to the toilet, fridge and coffee machine then.
Still, not going to make it XD
 
No more sitting toilet.
Only squatting toilet from now on.
 
Yeah no
That may be easy if you have parts that can be moved to aim, mine won't work like that XD
 
2:54 PM
No more sitting. Standing desk from now on.
 
Nope, no room for that.
 
Doesn't it seem fun?
 
Oh I know how to squat and go toilet, I've done it a few times when the portapotties at a digsite were too gross XD
Still, I have this perfectly fine porcelain throne and I will use it without defiling it.
 
Why, don't you want this?
 
2:58 PM
Strange.
 
I never claimed to be normal
 
So nice. People don't have toilets in their houses, so they go use the neighborhood's shared toilets. Maybe it's an arena for meeting new friends and partners.
Reminds me it's been so many years since I used an outdoor toilet.
 
Oh same here. I got an office job XD
 
There's an outdoor toilet on the neighboring island to where I grew up. It's close to the bay where we gathered for various events, or just went to swim. Although there's a closer beach on the same island.
My aunt and uncle's cabin in Eastern Norway also didn't use to have any water, so we used an outdoor toilet there, and brought a pickaxe down to the river to cut loose ice that we then melted to drink, cook with, and wash ourselves with.
 
I only ever had to use them on dig sites, in emergencies. No fancy outdoors here :P
 
3:06 PM
I have discovered the true reason why Russia saw it necessary to invade Ukraine.
 
Eh...
 
"Get it back on the rental market in the next couple of weeks"..............
 
Well that doesn't sound too impossible.
 
Some things should just burn.
That house is one of them.
 
Oh, I guess I'd never wanted to live in a place with that kind of history either... but I guess if it's properly cleaned and you don't know, it won't hurt :P
 
3:17 PM
It would stink.
 
@Tinkeringbell and I would do the same if I were in your shoes.
 
So, I looked for disgusting toilets, but YT found me this:
That's something for @Shadow.
@SPArcheon What's wrong?
 
@SPArcheon You can just not play the video's Andreas sends. He never knows :P
 
@Tinkeringbell Wait, does anybody even look at them?
 
I don't... can't speak for everyone else ;)
 
3:35 PM
@RocketNikita !
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact two way under_score! Awesome!
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact eww
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda ChatGPT (?)
 
lol
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact done it during army as I had to, not that bad but no fun either.
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact yay! looking for those toilets
 
@Tinkeringbell Sadly, the thumbnails for these are still visible and they are already kinda annoying.
 
3:45 PM
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact still? As in they always used to do that? respect for China growing
:D
 
@SPArcheon What thumbnails?
 
🤯
ZOE!!!
OLIVIA!
!!flush
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact hm?
 
@Zoeisonstrike I have been violated.
 
3:57 PM
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact ok
 
@Zoeisonstrike mol (?)
 
I'm bored to death.
 
4:37 PM
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact Watch MLP:FiM
 
@SPArcheon No...

I wasn't planning to vote in the election, but maybe I should? What do you think, @Zoe?
in 2024 Stack Overflow Moderator Election Chat on Stack Overflow Chat, 16 mins ago, by VLAZ
Each vote also comes with a free donation of one licorice to Zoe.
@Zoeisonstrike No...
 
phew
Thought my internet was being a pain in the ass
Turns out it's just chat.SO being, well, one of Stack Overflow, Inc.'s many abandoned children
 
4:54 PM
Then start an orphanage.

@Zoeisonstrike no, wait, this time it is the whole network.

No associated word found for Baaz.
 
8:03 PM
pity
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda That belongs to the sewer, not trash cans.
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact ah, but no sewer here, trash can is the closest thing we have.
This reminds me, I have a lost ping... let's find it...
@user1271772 yes you did! Shame on you! And you also missed Dror's birthday! :D
 
8:59 PM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda Or we could do the less work-intensive option and throw them in the trash :p
 
@Zoeisonstrike Throw @Tink in the trash?
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact The messages
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact whut why?
 
9:15 PM
Throw me in the trash?
 
@Zoeisonstrike only with paper
 
10:10 PM
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact probably too heavy to lift :P
Also, relevant to what we talked about earlier, hopefully translate does it justice :P nu.nl/wetenschap/6303156/…
Oh wait it has a link to the original in English! sciencealert.com/…
30 minutes is more than enough for me : P
 
@Tinkeringbell Just 80 kg.
No, I think I’m back up at 86 now. Need to stop eating entire pizzas.
@Tinkeringbell We have more muscles naturally. ;) I can lift more than many women tvat excercise hard every day. I never excercise.
Well, I did some basic excercising at home 3 months ago.
Anyway. Headache. Sleep.
Migraine.
