My dad got angry once.
I never made him angry again.
@202324 ouch
I have 0 memories of my dad.
Me too, he keeps them all himself ;)
He left the country when I was 3, got back to a year when I was 6, and died when I was 8. Heard stories and saw pictures, but no memory of my own.
Bit weird since most people have memories from childhood... meh.
@Tinkeringbell lol
@ShadowThePrincessWizard I was about to say that...
4:18 PM
@Tinkeringbell officially it's due to the trauma of losing him (mental defense system), but I don't understand why, since I barely knew him anyway. :/
At some point in my younger days (as teen) I started to think I'm adopted and all the stories and pics are fake, lol.
This might still be true, but at this point.... I don't really care. :P
I woulda known.
@ShadowThePrincessWizard yeah, that makes sense anyways. Even 'barely knew him' can be a bit of a false memory armchair psychology warning
@Tinkeringbell hmm.... but when? In that one year he was around when I was 6?
I remember small bits from that time, all those bits are with friends or by myself.
I don't know :) I haven't really studied humans or their minds ;)
hiring @Tink for psychological treatment
How much you charge? ;)
4:24 PM
@ShadowThePrincessWizard Please don't. I'll do more damage than good ;)
@ShadowThePrincessWizard enough that you can't pay it :P
Can't damage me more, believe me. :P
@Tinkeringbell hmm.... I can pay in chocolate!
Let's just not try ;)
4:25 PM
What would I need a 1000 bars of chocolate for?!
I could perhaps build a chocolate bar bar.
@Tinkeringbell well if it's baking chocolate... making 1000 lava cakes
This is all chocolate bars, for @Tink. ^^
@ShadowThePrincessWizard #ShipIt?
@ShadowThePrincessWizard mom would kill me. We don't have enough storage space!
4:27 PM
@Tinkeringbell put it outside with a sign "Don't touch, it belongs to the Red Parrot!"
Neighborhood will appreciate that, I'm sure ;)
use the menacing parrot as further deterrent
@Mgetz ship already sailed
4:28 PM
"these 250.000 tons of chocolate belong to ME and ME ALONE "
- Tink
@mag yes! Attach that pic on the box. :D
This reminds me... @Kevin I need to order another 100 capsules of Espresso.
I do remember my first coffee... sort of.
I would totally do that with mint tea
it's all mine
Hmm.... I got DM on Twitter from someone claiming to be United Nations peacekeeper. Is this some known scam?
So far she only asked for me email, and I refused.
Never heard that before, but sounds suspicious.
Well, I'll play the game for now...
Weird thing, the profile appears totally legit.
4:34 PM
might even be genuine and they're interviewing, but I wouldn't take any chances
interviewing for a story or conducting a poll or something
@Tinkeringbell I had to work on a chocolate bar packaging design at some point. Of course I insisted the client provide examples from the competition. I got sent back with a big bag bursting of all sorts of goodies and had a chocolate bar bar thing going on at work for a while.
@mag hmm.. good point. She says she's in Syria, and it's clear I'm from Israel. Still, the way her messages are written is weird, as if written by machine/script.
You end up having all sorts of new friends :P
> Thank you so much for accepting me as your friend, I will like us to be a very good friends and see what future holds for us
Doesn't sound very..... real? ^
@ShadowThePrincessWizard O_o
4:37 PM
Anyway.... will keep you updated.
I think.
Some sort of social experiment?
@curious no idea....:/
it's a scam.
It's always a scam
@curious wow, that's awesome! Must have gotten some new friends at work during this.... :D
@djsmiley2k-CoW nah, you're confused with cache.
@curious yeah! I know a guy that markets chocolate products for a living ... It's always a pleasure meeting him ;)
imagine working in a chocolate factory
you can bribe all your friends with chocolate
A friend of mine works in a chocolate factory. In the (corporate) PR department.
4:56 PM
@ShadowThePrincessWizard Our electricity companies are generally run pretty well here. In my area, though, there have been some outages in the name of public safety when there has been a wildfire.
Wildfires are common here at this time of the year

Welcome to November’s installment of Stack Overflow research updates! This month marks one year since my colleagues in UX research and I started sharing bite-size updates about the quantitative and qualitative research we use to understand our communities and make decisions.

In recent months, we have invested time and energy in improving the question-asking experience on Stack Overflow, one of the most fundamental interactions on our site. In August, I outlined what we learned from the question wizard, our first major change to the question-asking workflow in a decade. In September, Lisa  …

@Tinkeringbell I would call it "practical", but okay. :p
6:44 PM
@Bart On a male level, perhaps :P

I'm absolutely not looking for upvotes here or anything, but can anybody explain why this answer is getting downvoted? I've heard a couple of theories in the comments (though one of them is not how the system works at least). Is it just normal to downvote an answer to an on-topic low effort question? I don't really care about the rep here, it just has me bemused.
Some people are pretty adamant on not encouraging answering duplicate questions.
Makes sense, I suppose. I'm not a fan of it when it happens usually myself.
Probably should have assumed it was already answered, but it was easy enough and it didn't occur to me to look.
[shrug] oh well.
Of course normally I'd just delete an answer on an accidental dupe, but obviously can't do that here.
@Rubiksmoose Why not? Oh, because it's accepted?
Want me to do it?
Or would that be mod abuse? ;)
You can also hope OP figures out that if they unaccept, they can delete their own question.
8:27 PM
@Tinkeringbell hah! I've done that for people for sure. Might as well get rid of the answer if you don't mind.
@Rubiksmoose poof!
Awwww, I didn't get to downvote it.
@Bart I'll let you know next time I post and you can get that sweet sweet first downvote ;)
@Tinkeringbell thanks :)

@Tinkeringbell The answer no longer shows as accepted; did that automatically go away when you deleted it?
@Rubiksmoose your avatar still elicits a sensible chuckle whenever I see it :D
10:03 PM
@mag :)
I love that you specify "sensible chuckle"
