cue a grand soundtrack
 
I mean, burning eye in the sky? Check! Mortal Peril? Check...
 
Yeah, that eye hurts my eyes...

@JourneymanGeek - Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore casualty strolls in the morning. [Video].
 
2:43 AM
@Rob I don't know what's worse...
that the video is unavailable, or that I know exactly what you're talking about
 
Rob
LOL
Ride of the Valkyries is the music prior to that scene. Here's another YT, but if YT is out there's: knowyourmeme.com/memes/… 👃⛽🌅
 
3:08 AM
I'm not a meme lover, but I'd love for the phrase "I'm not a meme lover" becomes a meme...

Can I delete a question if it has an answer that is +1/-1?
 
@forest No. If it has an upvote even with a score of zero you can't delete it. See here.
 
Damn
Thanks.
 
Your Welcome.
 
@forest depending on the circumstances, you might be able to flag and ask nicely for it to be deleted
if there's no answers, depending on the mod handling it, it might be possible
 
7:34 AM
Or K. Can't decide
 
What does N or K mean?
 
Daily riddle for @Mithrandir. What's in the box?
(Others here don't really have a chance to know ;))
 
@ShadowWizard chess board
 
@forest N = naa-, feedback for answers meaning 'mark it as NAA and don't bother me with a response'. K = tpu-, meaning 'nuke from teh orbit and don't bother me with a response'
 
@forest K is shortcut for tpu- which is True Positive User, which means the report was indeed spam or offensive, and user should be blacklisted, and the minus means silent, i.e. no feedback from Smokey as result
 
7:36 AM
c.f.
 
buh @M.A.R. is faster
 
@ShadowWizard food
 
@ShadowWizard I'm guessing... a bunch of baryons and fermions?
 
@ShadowWizard N
 
@rene lol... that's obvious. :P
No points for you!
 
7:38 AM
@ShadowWizard Schrodinger's cat
 
So . . . we didn't have a chance to know food because we . . . photosynthesize?
 
@andmyself K
 
Not baryons and fermions, huh! Must be some kind of exotic matter!
Hope you're storing it well outside of our atmosphere. :D
 
7:41 AM
 
You need to learn Hebrew to know, but you still won't know for sure, e.g. even @Mithrandir might not know what's that food. ;)
 
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Oh that is just evil.
 
Well if there's anything I know about wizardry is wizards think gross food is normal
 
lol
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ true! And all my coworkers agree with you! lol
 
7:44 AM
@ShadowWizard well, if no one else guesses it, I win for the close enough answer
 
was the answer "close enough food"?
 
@rene contest ends in 6-8 days :D
 
It's אנתרופוגיה אסימפטוטית
 
rofl... where on earth you brought that one from?! :P
also.. typo... it should be אנתרופולוגיה אסימפטוטית, which still makes little sense. lol
So it means you didn't copy and paste from some translator...
Closest match: academia.edu/3360574/…MA_Thesis_Hebrew
huh? URL borked?

Q: Inconsistency in display of animated avatars

trichoplaxIt has been discussed previously that animated avatars are disliked because they cause a distraction from the content. However, currently animated avatars are not treated consistently. On desktop, animated avatars are displayed as a still image, both in posts and on the profile page. On mobile,...

It was given as example here ^
If the bug persists for some days now, I'll edit my answer, or delete and write a new one.
(they switched it, from mobile web supporting animation to full site supporting it.)
 
Hey @ShadowWizard new haircut? you look different...
Almost didn't recognize you
 
7:59 AM
@Tinkeringbell see my profile... I'm finally alive.... :P
But actually yeah that dude looks bit like me. :D
@Tink you can also have animation... here's a nice one for you:
:D
 
8:16 AM
Nah. I'm sticking with the static one ;)
 
@ShadowWizard Anthropogeny not -pology
 
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ yeah saw the source of the mistake, Google got a typo.
Anyway, the Hebrew word is אנתרופולוגיה, that's for sure. :)
oh wait
buh
I was wrong
The Hebrew word for Anthropogeny is אנתרופוגניה. Not what you found, but also a word I never heard about until now. lol milononline.net/…
 
8:33 AM
@ShadowWizard @M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ
 
@Mithrandir @M.A.R. in a box? Nah.... he's better than that. :P
Hint: it's yellow!
Well, going to eat it for lunch in couple of hours, so will take unboxing pic to reveal the secret. :D
 
If I change my avatar to Pokemon Shock, 99% I'll be suspended...
 
8:51 AM
Is that the flashing screen thing?
I don't think it'd be a problem in an avatar. In order to trigger seizures, it needs to fill up a significant portion of an epileptic's visual field (e.g. a TV screen or at a rave).
 
@andmyself this?
 
@ShadowWizard This.
I'm not epileptic myself, but I still wouldn't want to watch that on a big screen.
Anyway, it turns out it was mostly a myth.
It didn't actually trigger epilepsy on a mass scale.
 
Yeah, that. Anyway, just for safety disclaimer: (Warning, might induce seizure for both above and below video)
I like this song.
 
It would be very unlikely to induce a seizure. :P
At least, not much more likely than a common fluorescent lamp.
It was found that it was a case of mass hysteria, not actual seizures.
 
@forest you mean when it's near its end, and start to blink?
 
9:02 AM
@ShadowWizard You ever see an old fluorescent lamp that makes the entire room seem like it's violently flickering tens of times a second?
Most newer ones don't do that, but many older ones that have lasted longer than they should have flicker quite visibly, especially in your peripheral.
 
off topic answer meta.stackexchange.com/a/322486/152859 @rene (huh? Why @Glorfindel appears to not be pingable??)
hmm... only explanation I can think of he's ignoring me? :(
Let's see something...
 
How do you know he's not pingable?
 
@forest he's not in the auto complete
 
The name autocompletes for me.
 
And yeah, he's pingable to my sock.
Oh well so now I can ping @Glor 10000 times and it won't bother him. :P
I was somewhat aggressive towards him yesterday, so can understand.
 
9:07 AM
I think I haven't been in here for too long.
 
@Glorfindel nah, you were here yesterday and we even talked
oops. I mean you and my master. lol
 
last time I remember was replying to iBug
 
oh, that's true.
 
And now you are pingable to me. So weird.
 
The chat is cursed.
 
9:08 AM
well, FWIW putting people on ignore is not my style
 
Glad to know :)
 
I might not reply, that's certainly a possibility.
 
@Glorfindel so did you get my pings from before?
 
yes I did
 
oh nice
 
9:09 AM
 
lol
oops
Glad I didn't ping you 1000 times then. :D
NAA needs one more vote...
Or one parrot, or one dog. ;)
 
@ShadowWizard Let people do it from the queue. Some people like boosting those stats ;)
 
@Tinkeringbell oh, I always forget MSE got VLQ review... hardly visit it. lol meta.stackexchange.com/review/low-quality-posts/62343
 
@ShadowWizard Don't worry, you have the shield of activity. If someone ignores you they would no longer understand half the conversations in the Tavern
So you'd automatically win
Also Glor is pingable for me, so throw that computer out
 
fin
 
9:18 AM
del
 
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ lol turns out it was some temp glitch in auto complete
@Glor was pingable all the time and never ignored me. :D
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ bell
throwing WAG on @M.A.R

Why are answers that are protected by Community due to spam not automatically un-protected after a certain amount of time has passed?
 
Hmm.. how many times I have mentioned about broken MetaEcons.SE favicon on SE.com? ._.
 
11:52 AM
@forest you mean questions, and reason is because nobody asked for it, I guess.
 
Yeah I meant questions.
 
Anyway, as promised...
Persian rice with beans, raisin and carrots.
@Mithrandir could have guessed at least the persian rice part since it was written "persian" (in Hebrew) on the cover. ;)
 
I did, that's why I said it was @M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ
 
@andmyself many
Sep 10 '17 at 21:18, by Elias
Unless you see it right, mine's don't have the "EC" text :(
@Mithrandir ohhh lol. But you failed with rice. :D
Usually "פרסי" is for rice, no? lol
@JNat another cross site spammer for your gentle care. Thanks! :)
 
12:35 PM
@ShadowWizard very very gentle care... :P
 
@EKons oh, indeed. He's becoming better with each spammer he's nuking. :D
 
does he press the destroy button gently? :P
 
@EKons with extra care!
 
1:02 PM
@Mithrandir ur face iz rice
 
1:20 PM
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Can't argue with that.
 
@Mithrandir Can't argue with that.
 
Nothing to argue about then. That's no fun.

Q: Does YouTube delete video dislikes?

MiClOn some YouTube videos, particularly highly downvoted ones, I often see comments asserting that their dislikes on the video are being deleted, either by YouTube or the channel itself. From the Gillette "We Believe" ad: Fake dislike count: 761k of dislikes.. Real (but censored) dislikes count...

Does Stack Exchange delete downvotes?
TYRANNY
 
it actually does in certain circumstances... ;)

Q: Why are actions on deleted questions not shown in my activity list?

NineBerryI made a comment on a question in Stack Overflow. Then some minutes later I wanted to navigate to the question again for making another comment. So, I went to my profile / Activity / all actions / comments. But my comment was not there. I found the question via my browser history and saw that i...

'cause they're deleted. Wild guess
I guess if we take that away there won't be any real meaning for deletion for 10k

@ShadowWizard's new avatar:
 
closes Rob's post as a duplicate
 
Rob
You don't find that an improvement ...
 
I almost punch the monitor...

Being on a crappy WiFi, I literally can't see a difference :P
(I actually couldn't, when I first saw it)
 
Rob
It's quite different, you'll have to take our word for it.

Q: Tell answer-author when the question is being voted to close

Robert CartainoWhen I am in the editor writing an answer to a question, the system will notify me (in real time!) when another answer has been posted. This is presumably so I can see if the new answer may have rendered my post somewhat redundant. Can we extend that same feature/courtesy to authors when a ques...

that might have been rehashed quite a few times
 
6:08 PM
@andmyself Looks nice :)
 
Rob
6:40 PM
@Tinkeringbell Yes, a recent answer had VTCs coming in and I was rushing to answer because I felt it was a good question (possibly misunderstood, partly due to the author's confusion about a difficult subject - black holes). I answered simply and quickly, scoring an upvote and choosen answer.
 
@Rob Okay you win.
 
Rob
7:39 PM
I agree with the three of you. It's tough when the rug gets pulled out from under you.
 
@Rob I'm safe. No rugs here
 
@Tink how are you?
 
rug-less, apparently
 
@ShadowWizard Meh. And you?

He must have punched his monitor
