Am I the only one thinks that google's new car looks somewhat like a unicorn?
It's an ugly car.
true ... & will probably cost a lot too - if it does eventually hit the market some day
I like as much to be manual as possible.
except engine torque
Me fur is cut
Me like auto auto.

@bjb568 nice trim.
I wish you had run for mod. — Jeremy 47 mins ago
Random remark from a user I never interacted with...
Math election ends in 19 hours.
You should've run.
You appear to be a shoo-in for LH mod, based on meta votes.
12:23 AM
Destroying users! Nuking posts! Editing comments after 5 minutes! Think of the perks...
@Behaviour That surprised me.
@Behaviour Editing any user comments and yours after 5 minutes!
@Behaviour Getting yelled at and still remaining calm! Being called a Nazi! Having to handle users who will insult anyone in a 5 mile radius, while simultaneously trying not to rip your keyboard in half! ... yeah, it's not all fun and games. :P
(Admittedly, Puzzling has been a... decidedly more difficult site to moderate than would be expected.)
Difficult is an understatement.
12:42 AM
History of S&M is getting renamed as Historia Philosophiae Naturalis et Mathematicae. But not really.
I really should come up with some questions to ask there. The site is a good idea, but lacks questions... Wikipedia covers popular topics well, and to ask something more specialized one has to study the thing first.
@Behaviour History of S&M = History of Sadism and Masochism? WTH?
Just a little joke, but coming from real life. At my school, a college division is "Natural Sciences and Mathematics", and the abbreviation gets used in phrases like "S&M chairs meeting".
@Doorknob冰 you should volunteer to mod LH. Promise to disallow LifeHacking in your stump speech.
12:54 AM
@Shog9 ... how do you disallow lifehacking? That would mean you'd have to control people's lives, and when a mod intervenes into real life...
Aug 26 '10 at 18:14, by Shog9
Mods can also come into your house at night and leave your milk out. Some mod abilities aren't talked about much.
How did I forget?
Clearly, you haven't been fulfilling your mod duties
Eeek. My memory is going about mod abilities.
transfers hichris's diamond to LH
12:56 AM
@Shog9 Clearly. As a result, I will go destroy 5 users, the first of which being a person named Shog... Nine?
Oh please, not there. I think I've only cast one upvote.
Yeah, 1 upvote, 4 downvotes.
oh, come on - you'd love it. You could try to find my sockpuppet.
@hichris123 you better don't lie... Shog knows everything
(you better not lie)
Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth. And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.
That's just my good friend.

A: Do the top answerers have secondary accounts to post questions?

Shog9Yes. Indeed, this is the dirty little secret of SO... As you're well aware, the question/answer ratio for human beings is fixed at 283/7. It is physically impossible for anyone to answer more than seven questions without having first asked at least 283. Therefore, any user with a smaller ratio i...

@Shog9 Well, y'know it was "good friend Nog Shine" at the beginning of the post, but "my evil twin, Nog Shine" towards the end. What happened to change from a good friend to an evil twin?
We're on good terms, me & that bastard
1:08 AM
Oh, a complicated love-hate relationship? I see.
Alright, the gig is up. Jon Skeet is my alternate account. Please merge my Jon skeet account into my Adam Davis account on SO. I'm tired of living the lie. — Adam Davis Nov 5 '09 at 16:15

Yes, obvious spam. Every user with 1 rep and female avatar is a spammer.
@bjb568 strikes me like Final Fantasy
Femtofarad? Fortissimo?
Fatal Frame
1:34 AM
Fortissimo should be more like ƒƒ
but maybe not
perhaps DreadOut
Femptofarod is fF.
A femme fatale (/ˌfæm fəˈtɑːl/ or /ˌfɛm fəˈtɑːl/; French: [fam fatal]) is a stock character of a mysterious and seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations. She is an archetype of literature and art. Her ability to entrance and hypnotise her victim with a spell was in the earliest stories seen as being literally supernatural; hence, the femme fatale today is still often described as having a power akin to an enchantress, seductress, vampire, witch, or demon, having power over men. The phrase is French for "fatal woman"...

There's a thread stating that, somewhere.
1:46 AM
The drop down list on the bottom of the page is interesting too
@Behaviour Heh, DD doesn't do that!
@AnnaLear Is the "You shall not pass" page the start of responsive design? :D
Did I ping the right person?
@bjb568 er, what? where?
on dev.se
oh thank god. I pushed some login changes earlier, so I was like "oh god did I break login for everyone" :P
Dev meta is in private beta.
And is in some weird language.
1:55 AM
yeah, that sounds about right.
that's a veeeeery wide screen....
Why are you accessing dev.se over https?
Why are you accessing dev.se? ;)
1:57 AM
@JanDvorak IDK, it did that by default or something.
dev.a51 is borked
It's not an iframe tho. Weird.
hmm... it's not *thu, but why is the pronunciation different?
@AnnaLear did you touch handleSuccess? DON'T YOU DARE!
runs in panic
@Braiam I did! God help me I'm starting to understand how it works.
FSM might need to pitch in some help too.

May I be touched by His noodly appendage.
I read part of it as double membrane and paused.
Nope! Disposable.
for exactly how long is that "you've had three flags declined" thing going to stick around?

Why would clicking "more login options" disable the username and password fields...?
How do you earn the hairboat hat?
@Frank There's a Q&A full of spoilers like that, go check it if you want to know :p
one more vote needed
@AnnaLear Hey, at least before the Multicollider was shown!
Also: Steam?
2:14 AM
closed finally
Also: Facebook?
@JanDvorak Spam, I think. Daft, certainly.
404 page is blank. Changing language gives 404.
Steam is big
ads.stackoverflow.com/… is linked, Y U NO EXIST
What is "← Back to Stack Overflow Dev" supposed to do?
Huh. Dev Meta Stack Overflow is Dev Stack Overflow.

@Frank Post a comment on one of Abby Hairboat's posts
@InfiniteRecursion ok
And Hi @InfiniteRecursion, been a while since we were both in this room at the same time.
Just realized that Solstice hat only required to post/comment on 21st, but can be upvoted later (not a must to be same date) got this hat 6 hours ago
@Frank Yes, you are doing an amazing job on LH...busy I guess
@Frank she wants to know if you'll steer her sailboat , she needs a Captain! She is getting stuck with the 5mph winds hovering near @bart's pond.
@InfiniteRecursion It's actually tamed quite a bit lately.
2:53 AM
@Sompuperoo Hey, it's my pond!
Now everyones voting that I be moderator, so there I go. I'll be even busier.
@Frank Yes, it's better. I think you will get a lot of trolls to nuke if you get a diamond :)
@Frank you can easily take top hatter on G&L , see this thread for how to earn secret hats!
please don't let the tavern down @Frank!
@Sompuperoo Why isn't hatter #5 good enough?
@Frank no! Taverners are #1!
2:56 AM
@Sompuperoo hmmm.
Nuke @Sompuperoo's account if you get mod powers. He is troll #1
nice , LH in public beta, cool!
... how?
but I lost review priv's :(
3:04 AM
@Sompuperoo Hey troll #1
@Sompuperoo You have work to do. :P

CM disagreement!
I saw.
It is almost ... almost like CMs are real people.
Don't let them fool you.
@Anna go be the first of the dev team to join the fun

@Frank this user lifehacks.stackexchange.com/questions/288/… left a trollish comment.. Also had to recommend deletion on another site for one of his/her answers that was like trollish
@Sompuperoo soic
@Frank you just summed up most of the comm team meetings :P
I can't help ya, srry
@AnnaLear haha
@Sompuperoo I expected it to link to my comment, because I fit the description of "requested profile deletion of his/her account"
3:17 AM
@InfiniteRecursion I noticed that.
It's too bad though
LH is a nice site, but it's not for me @Frank :)
@InfiniteRecursion That's what I guessed.
It is for me.

Something about speakers this time. But the same username as always. Old friend.
Drupal moderation has improved.
Either that, or it's one of the locals
pretty sure it's one of the people with network-wide superpowers lurking here
too much power
3:25 AM
I wonder why they use bagprada. Prada sales have dipped all around the world, they are going out of fashion, but OP seems to be an ardent prada fan.
They're not gonna gain much by spamming drupal.
Maybe they are a troll spammer?
Being a troll and a spammer must be a lot of work :P
I wonder how trolls get so much time to troll. The StackBot guy seems to spend hours trolling, looks like he has incredible patience and leisure.
Prolly out of school and no work.
3:30 AM
Like some of us here.
I thought y'all were still in school.
The mods are still in school, the others are out of school :D
@Undo You can guess it's a wild Anna, but we'll see. ;P
Mods have more tools and less time, spammers have less tools and more time. Who wins?
@hichris123 prolly
3:34 AM
*fewer tools
meh, grammar
@JanDvorak Mod tools are uncountable, so less is correct.
^ Jan runs a school (for grammar)
not a
@Frank why should tools be uncountable?
3:35 AM
@JanDvorak count them then.
In the past, we were seeing less and less stars on the sky each year. Now we see fewer and fewer of them.
@JanDvorak Speak for yourself (and consider getting an eye exam)
for yourself
(consider getting a pair of glasses as well)
Or eye transplant!
Or nanobots.
3:41 AM
Or baby wipes!
@Frank I meant out of school temporarily, between semesters. Many kids work, but not all. So, free time, internet, trolling.
@InfiniteRecursion Meh, that's for babies.
one does not simply

transplant an eyeball
One can try though
and fail
Do you think he is a grown-up @bjb568? :P
3:43 AM
and kill someone by accident
through blood loss?
@InfiniteRecursion If he is a baby, I don't want to see a grown up. Since I see almost everything since I attempted to hack into Shog's account, he's probably a baby.
@InfiniteRecursion grown-up as compared with what? Many thing grow, often upwards.
Compared to !grown-up.
@JanDvorak through wrong blood types entering the system from the new eyeball
3:45 AM
@bjb568 Trees never stop growing up. They get very grown up.
They do get cut down.
not me tho - too important.
Most important tree on SE
And should be a mod!
3:47 AM
@bjb568 prolly will it seems
literally everyone's voting for me. Don't ask me why, lol
I liked the fun fact that you are the lowest rep marshal on SO. I upvoted, but couldn't comment that you help flagging on all the sites, as well as organize lots of topic-challenges
@Frank tends to happen to good candidates.

It's . . . Because I'm Batman!
@Undo Not really

Some users have more rep on Meta.SE than on any "real" SE site... I wonder how many.
there's me
and Bart
I have four times the reputation!
Oh, that's no longer true, I forgot I have extra reps on SO now. It's more like three times.
3:56 AM
Where did the extra reps come from, a holiday bonus?
You need to get to work on Meta.SE now!
Maybe I'll finish off a few Data Explorer features.

Your bio is boring
Yes, do like I in my profile. You get badges! OMG! — bjb568 Aug 6 at 3:52
^ That was pre-tavern. I thought you were a troll after reading that comment.
@InfiniteRecursion Mine's about the same.
@InfiniteRecursion And the tavern confirmed it?
Does anybody not think I'm a troll?
@Frank I like yours.
4:10 AM
It differs slightly but is about the same.
@Behaviour Beyond any speck of doubt
@Frank Not even close
Read them both out loud, and not any differences.
I'm not a thank-you note expert, I don't know . — bjb568 Aug 5 at 21:29
Huh. 12 upthumbs.
Ok, your MSE bio is similar. But on other sites, your bio is nice @Frank. bjb has the same bio on all sites.
@InfiniteRecursion true.
4:16 AM
That, combined with the other fields make his profile look trollish.
@InfiniteRecursion He did that on purpose...
I know. But it's boring.
also true.
does it matter?
not really, imo
Man I look evil with this hat on.
Evil tree.
