Looks like SE/SO is moving in on Quora territory with the new Teams feature.
 
user163250
I wonder if Quora pooped in their pants with the announcement.
 
Seems a lot like AMA to me
 
user163250
Well, basically, yeah.
 
user163250
Quora gets lots of AMAs.
 
user163250
12:08 AM
Companies will field them.
 
user163250
There used to be one guy at GitHub who fielded a lot of questions on Quora.
 
Hmm, I thought Quora was just SO without any discernible focus, but I guess I don't spend much time there.
 
user163250
Every question that wouldn't make the cut on SO makes it to Quora instead.
 
Ah, interesting.
I miss the good 'ol days of aardvark
 
user163250
You have people asking that female Facebook COO questions about the company and her work routine all the time.
 
user163250
12:12 AM
It has a very personal feel to it.
 
Hmm, cool.
 
user163250
It's a venue for asking questions from important and influential people that you normally wouldn't be able to otherwise.
 
Huh, so it really is a lot like AMA. Interesting
 
The question we should all be asking right now is: "Will @PeterMortensen be able to copy-edit team questions?" Because if not, we should just pack it in now. — Shog9 ♦ 2 hours ago

I'm disappointed that the text from a starred quote doesn't make it onto the star wall, instead of the link.
 
user163250
12:16 AM
A link is not interesting to look at, there's no context.
 
Would you like to try that again, then? ;)
bah, too much work.
Doesn't @MiceElf have a script for that?
 
user163250
Yeah :P

user202362
how's the deer in your backyard? still there when you are asleep?
 
yes
they've consumed most of my tomato plants :/
next year, I'm investing in some coyote urine
 
user202362
you don't have some kind of fence around your tomato plants?
 
1:24 AM
deer laugh at fences
 
user202362
True
 
user202362
even my chooks laugh at fences
 
user202362
why humans so retarded? ~_~
 
user259867
Solving problems by driving out THE WRONG SORT OF ANIMALS is always appealing.
 
user202362
maybe you should feed the deer, so they bring the babies around
 
1:26 AM
they're already doing that
But that's a reasonable idea.
I think I'll plant some lettuce in front of the tomatoes next year
give 'em something else to eat once the grass gets scarce
 
user202362
poor dear deer, it's only early October and your tomato plants are almost gone ...
 
user202362
what would they be eating for the next 4 months??
 
I can't complain; last year we'd had a couple hard freezes by this time
@chmod711telkitty trees, of course
they ate about half of my pear tree before I put wire around it
 
user202362
You are leaving the other half for them this year? How thoughtful of you :p
 
It's hard for me to imagine Shog9 working in a garden, putting up wire around trees, planting lettuce or tomato's...... It's cognitively dissonant, I'd find it more believable for him to be typing sudo apt-get upgrade peartree-wire
 
user202362
1:32 AM
If you start feeding them, eventually they would take food from your hand
 
user202362
it might take a while, but with friendly neighbours it will happen
 
@chmod711telkitty they need something to sustain them over winter...
@JamesENL odd. What gives you this impression?
Also, I hate package managers. Build it from source or GTFO

user259867
If one's full-time job is arguing on the internet, working in a garden makes a lot of sense.
 
user259867
And conversely: Frank became a mod.
 
enough time spent gardening will make a job arguing while comfortably indoors seem rather appealing. And, vice-versa.
 
user202362
1:36 AM
@Shog9 So next time you would have 2 times amount of the deer chewing on your tomato plants, isn't it lovely? :p
 
we need more wolves.
or careless drivers
 
user202362
wolves? what happened to your idea of coyotes?
 
they're clearly not doing it

coyotes stir up a racket but don't actually do much for the deer beyond chasing them into my yard
 
user202362

maybe I need a bigger dog

A: How does soaking liver in milk work?

j.peterson.my late ex mother in law soaked live in milk before cooking and it was delicious. and i say that as someone who would never eat liver before i tasted hers.

 
user259867
So gruesome
 
it does improve the taste
still want for strong mustard, IMHO
oh... I see what you mean
 
user259867
Soaking mother-in-law live in milk... then tasting her liver.
 
that's awful
This doesn't really explain the effect though, which is what the question was asking. (Also... phrasing...) — Shog9 ♦ 9 secs ago

I wonder at what point eating offal became "gross" in some cultures...
 
user163250
1:48 AM
Offal /ˈɒfəl/, also called variety meats or organ meats, refers to the internal organs and entrails of a butchered animal. The word does not refer to a particular list of edible organs, which varies by culture and region, but includes most internal organs excluding muscle and bone. As an English mass noun, the term "offal" has no plural form. Some cultures shy away from offal as food, while others use it as everyday food, or in delicacies. Certain offal dishes—including foie gras, pâté and sweetbread—are considered gourmet food in international cuisine. Others remain part of traditional regional...
 
user202362
anyways got to rush, all the best to your tomato plants and baby deers :p
 
probably depends on how it's plated
cheers
 
user163250
Like, I'm sure back in cave man days, you ate anything that you could get your hands on, so why are people grossed out now?
 
probably multiple reasons
 
user259867
Separation of labor.
 
user259867
1:50 AM
No longer having to butcher own animals, etc.
 
I mean, there are good reasons not to eat some organs very often, particularly if you're getting them second-hand
also, preparing stuff like tripe can be... pretty off-putting. The smell, man.
But yeah, the reason Mice cites is probably a big one
For instance, beef tongue is delicious and not particularly unpleasant to prepare
but I know a few folks who simply won't touch it because... Well, it's recognizable
if you can forget where meat comes from, I guess why wouldn't you?
 
user163250
Honestly, having my tongue touch something else's tongue is pretty creepy.

user163250

It's not the size that matters, it's the ferocity.
 
@Cupcake now, bears are a different matter. Haven't had any since we've had the dogs running around.
 
So today I get tagged in an event at my old Uni, that I am supposed to be speaking at. The last I heard from the person organising this was 2 months ago. I've heard nothing since, didn't get invited to the Facebook event, and wouldn't have heard about it if I wasn't tagged in a friend sharing the event. Am I crazy to be a little annoyed, and unable to attend?
 
@JamesENL Well, it's at least very disorganized to not follow up with your speakers...
 
I'd say you're crazy to agree to speak in the first place, but... To each their own.

@Shog9 I was flagging some spammy answers promoting a profanity filtering service (webpurify.com), and I came across the following question that you recently reopened: stackoverflow.com/q/273516/3093387. Do you recall the logic for re-opening? It seems to be four questions bundled into one, at least three of which are off topic (a request for an off-site resource and two API requests). I would imagine the oldness of the question and high view count played a role?
