@Inf Hats!
 
You better get some sleep.

Ooh, I better check chat.SO for abuse around mistletoe time.
 
If the tavern distracts you, lemme know. I can fix that.

!comp how much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood
 
A woodchuck would chuck all the wood he could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.
(According to the tongue twister, although the paper "The Ability of Woodchucks to Chuck Cellulose Fibers" by P.A. Paskevich and T.B. Shea in Annals of Improbable Research vol. 1, no. 4, pp. 4-9, July/August 1995, concluded that a woodchuck can chuck 361.9237001 cubic centimeters of wood per day.)
 
!comp What's the difference between a duck?
 
user231792
@bjb568 should you make the bot make the response be a reply?
 
One leg is both the same.

Q: Will there be hats on Meta Stack Exchange?

nicaelThey were on Meta Stack Overflow previous year, but since the split occurred, I would expect them to appear here, on Meta Stack Exchange, this year. Will it happen (or any discussion on it)? I want hatz!

Please help me to choose the answer to bounty (by voting).

@OneWay Very nice. Each click needs a bigger effect imo.

user259867
Dmitry Yurievich Malikov (Russian: Дмитрий Юрьевич Маликов) (born 29 January 1970) is a Russian composer, singer, and a recent record producer. He was also an actor in one movie. == Early life == Dmitry Malikov, who goes by his nickname Dima (Дима), was born in Moscow, Soviet Union. His mother, Lyudmila Mikhailovna Vyunkova, was a dancer, and his father, Yuriy Fedorovich Malikov (Юрий Федорович Маликов), was part of a band called Samotsvety (Самоцветы). This combination of parental talent had a large influence in his becoming a musician. In the early '70's, Samotsvety became one of the most popular...

Q: No hats on mobile

ricksterI've scarcely touched my laptop over the winter break, satisfying my SO addiction entirely through the iOS app. (And occasionally the mobile website.) Apparently I'm earning hats, and interacting with folks who've achieved even greater feats of haberdashery, but I don't get to see any of it. T...

10:43 PM
YEAH!! Bloat up that mobile site and those apps!
<grin>
 
Mobile site sux. I use desktop.
 
I use desktop also.
 
@bjb568 Stay out of Lightness's way. Seriously. It's not helping if you're bothering him all the time.
 
Bothering? Where?
 
Oh come on you know where I'm talking about.
No, you just want to hat whore more. — bjb568 2 hours ago
 
10:45 PM
Where?
Oh.
So?
 
@bjb568 ... if you don't want someone to be mad at you, don't instigate it perhaps?
 
I don't care what LRiO feels.
 
@bjb568 People still have to moderate it.
And believe me, it's not fun.
 
Whatever. No negative reaction yet.
 
while(!reaction) { poke(); } ?
 
10:47 PM
Pokey!
 
almost time for me to turn into a pumpkin.
 
@bjb568 ... there has been a reaction. And that's not a good attitude to have. Because you might at that point be "in too deep".
 
Can you… stop lecturing?
 
@bjb568 ... if you stop this actively harmful behavior, sure.
 
It should be a harmless comment that doesn't do much. If it's more, that's not my problem.
 
10:51 PM
@bjb568 Okay. Let's take two steps back here. You & Lightness have developed arguments before, correct? And you have posted an accusing comment.
What do you expect will happen?
 
I don't recall any severe arguments before. There was the short chat conflict, but that wasn't much. I removed myself from the situation and neither one of us pursued.
The comment is more of a hehe comment than a U IZ AN AWFUL PERSON comment.
 
@bjb568 Yeah, that doesn't come across. It's the internet. Wherein no one knows what you meant by anything.
 
Doesn't matter.
 
Shell-scripting... off-topic for SO, or not?
 
10:54 PM
sigh I'm giving up here.
 
45k
so probably not.
@hichris123 Egcellent!
 
@bjb568 k
 
@bjb568 No, not excellent. That means I couldn't get across to you... and you might end up in a dispute, predicament, or perhaps suspension soon if you don't stop. And I don't want that to happen.
