> There are some changes on the horizon - and soon - for the Hot Network Questions
I wonder if SE will announce the change publicly, not silently adjusting the switches...
I guess too early to speculate...
 
I'm not too sure. That said, It could go either way.
 
compromise: we publish the changes in the HNQ list
...under the title, "how to eat a dead body"
 
I'll keep that in mind...
 
No clickbaity enough
if it dosen't cause people to freak out...

Q: How can I tell if a corpse is safe to eat?

Larry WangI am a human wizard, and I just killed a monster, leaving a corpse on the ground. How do I tell whether it is safe to eat this corpse? I leave the monster unspecified because I am interested in "how can I figure out whether this is edible," rather than whether any particular monster is edible. L...

did ok

Rob
6:55 AM
Ketchup makes it safe.
 
A view like that doesn't need ketchup
 
Rob
7:32 AM
It wouldn't be safe to eat.
 
@Rob I wasn't planning on eating it XD
 
8:23 AM
Blacklist items automatically expire if they are never triggered for some amount of time. It's possible no one tried to use it for too long. — animuson ♦ 14 hours ago
TIL :/
 
8:43 AM
@JNat thanks!
@JNat no problem, and thanks for the answer! :)
That's the kind of answers I wish we'll always get. Honest, not trying to cover anything, and with hope for the future. :)
@Rob hehe, my daughter (8 y/o) always splashes the ketchup if she tries to put it by herself. lol
@Rob it's not begging for money, at least not the way I see it.
 
9:01 AM
Chief supervisor meta.stackexchange.com/questions/324596/… @Bart @rene @Glorfindel
 
Rob
@Tinkeringbell That was the premise of Shog's post above, how do we know if it's safe to eat, so eating is an expected action.
 
Mod doing RO job!
So noble.
 
@Rob Oh. Well. Ketchup only makes things worse.
 
I'm slacking
 
9:03 AM
@Tinkeringbell but it's red.
 
@ShadowWizard it has tomatoes
 
@Tinkeringbell only 10% or so
The rest is sugar and added color, likely.
 
It has pictures of tomatoes on the bottle too.
 
Tomators cost money.
 
Rob
@ShadowWizard Avoid any mess with this kind of bottle:
 
9:04 AM
@Tinkeringbell soft drinks have pictures of fruit and 0% actual fruit content. ;)
 
@ShadowWizard That's why I prefer home made apple sauce :)
 
@Tinkeringbell sauce?? Or juice?
 
@Tinkeringbell Arnhem?
 
Apple pie is yummy
@Rob invisible bottle?
 
@rene Zutphen. I think.
Train to Arnhem though :P
 
9:06 AM
Ah, I was pretty sure it wasn't Zwolle or Deventer, I would have recognized that..
 
I've not cleared any messages all feb ;p
 
Rob
 
@Tinkeringbell Doha, Qatar?
 
Rob
Doesn't accept webm
 
Same sky! ^^
 
9:06 AM
@ShadowWizard better condiments.
Get a bottle of Lingham's chilli sauce
 
@rene Yeah, it's not Zwolle or Deventer. Those aren't as pretty :P
 
the normal stuff, not the extra hot. Garlic is ok...
give it a good shake.
Ketchup is... weaksauce...
 
@JourneymanGeek a new archiver script has been released, it is pretty effective.
 
@JourneymanGeek well you're a mod :D
@Rob accepts yes, oneboxing no
 
@rene I had no computer access.
 
9:08 AM
@Rob yeah, we got it in Israel too, they were forced to change name and remove the word "Ketchup" from it due to low actual tomato contents.
 
Rob
That's why the delay, image conversion.
 
Was literally running everything off my phone
 
Ah, yeah. Forgot that.
 
Rob
The bottle style is what reduces the mess, put mustard in it if you like ....
It has a suck back self cleaning hole that works wonderfully.
 
Was alright, but I don't think anything went to plan
 
9:11 AM
@Rob Most stuff comes in bottles like that nowadays over here.
 
@Rob here's a gif.
 
Rob
In NA glass bottle is most common. Plastic squeeze bottle less so, but this type has a non-clogging nozzle that uses the bottle"s vacuum to pull the excess back in and clean itself.
 
Oh, glass ketchup bottles are bad... My grandma used to have those.
 
Rob
Shadow, notice no need to wipe out the top; just close the lid.
We do have Ketchup in glass too, for the purists, or if you need the exercise.
 
@Rob agreed
 
9:17 AM
ugh.
 
Thing is, plastic is bad for environment.
 
Personally prefer glass.
 
Glass can be recycled easily, I think.
 
Rob
💪 see, I used to use the traditional style.
 
We've got bottles that are somewhere around 30-40 years old in active use. The old round horlicks bottles are a kinda legendary
 
10:14 AM
3 1/2 hours of messing around with erroneous datamatrix barcode
kill me now and take all of php with you
 
@Magisch Would chocolate help? I don't like killing people :(
 
!!/chocolate @Magi

@Bookends No such command 'vanille'.

@ShadowWizard No such command 'jquery'.
 
mumble...
 
mumble again? when will the watch arrive?
 
10:39 AM
what happens if I try a zalgo command? Does the bot explode?
 
hehe
bolts away

And now it breaks @Magi in half
 
10:42 AM
GM_addStyle(".content { overflow: hidden; }");
GM_addStyle(".content:hover { overflow: inherit; }");
 
@SmokeDetector perhaps this need to be unstarred to prevent more annoyance...
 
diacritic abuse was old when it was new.
puts the cone of shame on @ShadowWizard
 
:(
!!/blame
 
@ShadowWizard It's rene's fault.
 
10:54 AM
See? Not my fault! :D
 
wait a minute !
 
waiting
wondering for how long should I wait

is the smokey command spam really necessary
disappointed cactus
 
@Magisch It's ShadowWizard's fault.
 
12:18 PM
an user on meta is asking for spam flags on this question
 
@Derpy tis' already gone
 
12:37 PM
@Magisch kinda wasn't when I posted.
Anyway, unrelated.
lucky enough they have dropped the Go mechanics. Thanks Celestia they did.
 
12:54 PM
and as predictable, first fake posters have already appeared.
 
That one is good :P
 
110% sure nintendo would never do pokemon "gun"
 
@Tinkeringbell but the third game is no longer a trend.
lately they are more akin to make a remixed version.
 
@Derpy Okay, it's good because it's funny :P Not because it matches the theme so well :P
 
@Tinkeringbell If a third game gets made, you can bet that it will be "Pokemon Scepter/Wand/Staff"
 
12:58 PM
I don't know. I might buy a switch this year though :P
 
I feel like pokemon has been practising superlative exhaustion lately
we went from "mega evolutions" to "ultra evolutions" to "ultra meganite-X" items to ultra moves
at some point they'll run out of stakes to raise
 
or just go back to basics
and make remakes
 
there's also a lot of powercreep
between arceus and mega-rayquaza and the moody dreamworld stuff
 
@JourneymanGeek Remakes would be cool for me. I missed a lot of the older ones :P
 
@Magisch sword / shield.....
 
1:05 PM
@JourneymanGeek your concern on the recent MSE topic is actually valid. People are forgetting how to deal with spam because almost none is around
 
pretty sure we will get Armor Evolution this time.
 
you can go a year of active participation without organically seeing a spam post because they usually gone in 20s or less
 
@rene still waiting! :D
@Magisch only on SO or if caught by Smokey. Otherwise I can totally understand how spam can last for hours and even days in smaller sites without active mods or users.
Heck... think I once saw a spam answer nuked only after years, when I bumped into it by mistake.
 
@Magisch So is it counterproductive to look for a cure for common cold?
@T.J.Crowder The flag queue volume has been quite manageable lately, so this is less of a concern than it used to be several years ago. Regarding the magic word "plagiarism", some of the moderators use user-scripts that allow filtering flags based on key words, but this is not a built-in feature. I wouldn't worry too much about specific verbiage to optimize for keyword searches, but it is difficult to imagine a clear flag on plagiarized content that didn't use the word "plagiarized"/"plagiarism" in some shape or form. — Cody Gray ♦ 19 hours ago
Get to work, slackers
Mods seem to be able to breathe
 
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ meaningfully sharpens custom serial voting flag
 
1:12 PM
Nope, never seen that. That's indeed very wrong, we should comment back to such people and explain what they should be doing. — Shadow Wizard 6 mins ago
@Sha you've never seen people do it?
 
I wonder how many days of 100 of those before I get told to back off :p
 
Tsk, noob
. . . at . . . um, getting annoyed.
@Magisch Back on
 
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ niet
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Front on
 
@ShadowWizard Back offf
Oh, three fs. That's a real back off
 
making a backup of offf
 
1:24 PM
@Magisch Actually its a concern I've expressed a few times
Its unpopular, and I don't think there's a good solution to it.
Smokey's effective - it does what its supposed to do realllllly well
 
imo the solution is to make smokey even better
 
Its a bit like a oldschool water pump. Its easy to do, but people get out of practice cause there's better ways to do it that pumps more water.
 
to reduce the amount that sips through the cracks
 
@Magisch well, eh.
better how?
 
I don't know how to manually manage memory anymore since I've been working with languages that do it for me, but that doesn't mean I should revert to that when faced with auto-allocation issues
 
1:26 PM
cause the sort of optimisations we've seen so far wouldn't fix it.
 
iirc these cases like OPs are there because the post got improperly reported to smokey. So if SE took the charcoal stuff and made a system level thing out of it or gave a special API for it to use that'd help some
SE API limitations, basically
 
(cough I suggested something vaguely like that ;p)
@Magisch people still need to know what to look for
and where to send it
and what to do
 
The dream would be a way to get an API feed of raised spam flags
so that anything spam flagged could be auto reported to smokey and checked out
 
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ done what?
 
@Shaymin custom vtc as spam, rather than flag
 
1:33 PM
@Shaymin the comment above that message. ;)
 
@JourneymanGeek huh?
 
> (as an aside, I wonder if having a visible or queryable way to see spam flags with sufficient rep would be useful)
;p
 
@ShadowWizard looks out of context
 
@Shaymin nope. I said I've never seen people voting to close questions as "spam" in a comment. @M.A.R. oneboxed that comment, calling me out for that and claiming it's hard to believe. And the rest is history. :D
There's never a context in Tavern.
It's raining here today.
See? No context. @Sha ^
:P
@Sha did you consider the side effects of using a name starting with "Sha"? ;)
Or was it on purpose, so you can steal my pings?!
ugh... think I had too much rice for lunch. 300 gram is too much, for one meal? :/
 
1:43 PM
@Derpy lol I know, still... so many others she could choose from. :)
 
@ShadowWizard wonder when @Sonic will finally change his username to Sanik
 
@Derpy this one?
@MagnifiveSANIK, United States
be nice and enjoy life , life is short
391 tweets, 741 followers, following 809 users
But nah... looks like Sonic is the "core", as "Sha" for me: name might vary, but always start with it. So he'll never change. ;)
 
was a meme, somehow managed to became "canon"
 
@ShadowWizard I'm starting to xd
@ShadowWizard oh ^^"
@ShadowWizard I'm just too lazy to get context :')
 
lol
throwing cake on @Sha
@Derpy Sonic is the real thing, not meme. ;)
 
1:55 PM
@ShadowWizard you... didn't read the link, did you?
 
@Derpy I did. :)
Even when meme is adopted as official, it's still a meme.
e.g. SE staff might use the "6-8 weeks" in official posts, but it's still a meme.
Well, it started with Jeff so guess it's different, still... hope you see my point. :D
 
@ShadowWizard then why you replied with "Sonic is the real thing, not meme" ?
 
@Derpy meant that @Sonic the person most likely prefers the real thing, not a meme, even if that meme became "real" at some point.
 
@ShadowWizard I fear it is too late: Sonic itself kinda became a meme after Sonic '06
 
I don't feel that's a particularly nice thing to say, @Derpy.
 
@Tinkeringbell don't get it, but as you wish.
 
:7580967 oy
 
Didn't see it :(
puts popcorn back
 
if you care to explain, ping me at the cube. In the meantime, I will gladly remove myself
 
2:18 PM
I wont kick you, but oh man. Please dont
 
2 mins ago, by Derpy
@Tinkeringbell don't get it, but as you wish.
 
@Derpy You can stay... just be a bit careful with the fun. This sounded more like a personal grievance than a joke...
 
do as you wish. Think I will be the one saying goodbye.
 
Maybe coffee will clear things up?
 
@Tinkeringbell saying that someone may get depressed because a post about "can we please be a little nicer" didn't get any feedback? Yep, right, personal grievance.
 
2:20 PM
!!/coffee g3r v4
 
@ShadowWizard brews a cup of Latte for @g3r
 
No v4? :(
 
Sorry, @Tinkeringbell, still not getting it. Bye.
 
@Derpy Bye for now!
 
if you're g3rv4 clap your hands :D
 
2:23 PM
@ShadowWizard why would you throw a cake at yourself? O_o
 
user310756
@Magisch well I've missed your flags. I've been waiting
 
user310756
@Magisch oooh I'm going! Thanks :D
 
Ouch
 
@Shaymin fun!!
 
2:30 PM
@ShadowWizard but did you bring enough for everyone?!
 
In this case, he doesn't have to share
I don't want cake thrown at me :P
 
throws a rebellious cake at @Tinkeringbell
 
Of course.
I could have expected that.
 
How do you like them apples cakes?!
 
today is not a food fight day though.
 
2:32 PM
chucks a chicken at @Tinkeringbell nope, it's an ingredient fight!!!
 
@Tinkeringbell puts the custom potato gun away reluctantly
 
@Magisch Good. Now we only need to catch that rogue shaymin ;)
 
@Tinkeringbell Try me uwu
I'll change into my sky form and fly away ;)
Because here at Evolution On Demand, we give Pokémon on-demand evolutions in any direction!
... I need a life xd
 
Wait.. something just occurred to me! Tim Post twitter id is tinkertim... so @Tinker is attempt to be like Mr. Post? :P
 
@ShadowWizard unless @Tinkeringbell IS Tim Post!!!
 
2:35 PM
@ShadowWizard I'll change nicknames tonight. Immediately
 
@Tinkeringbell too late, your cover is blown. :p
 
@Shaymin can be fun!
@Shaymin no, it's a small cake, for two. Or was. :D
 
2:48 PM
@ShadowWizard don't make me send Giratina on you >~<
 
64 flags raised today, thats enough
 
@Magisch you're missing 36 there :p
 
@Shaymin Yeah but these are all high-investigation level custom flags
dont want to do the full 100
 
Oh
 
I know from hearsay one of these takes about 10 minutes on average to fully investigate
 
2:52 PM
@Shaymin I'm not afraid of dragons! :D
 
3:03 PM
Question with "nudity" in its title is HNQ. Why I'm not surprised? :D
 
@SmokeDetector o/
@Magisch clap clap
 
subtle ref to your chat.MSE profile description :D
 
@ShadowWizard Giratina isn't a dragon >~<
 
@Shaymin no? Looks dragon-ish to me...
With lots of sharp stuff, but still.... ;)
 
isn't it dragon + ghost type too?
 
3:13 PM
Still, partly dragon. With dragon gold badge, I have control over them. :P
closing @Giratina as duplicate of something
 
@ShadowWizard Pokemon != dragon >.>
@Magisch type != species <.<
 
@Shaymin dragons can come in many forms, in many genres. They're still dragons. :D
 
@ShadowWizard >.>
 
@Shaymin <.<

BAG => Basisregistratie Adressen en Gebouwen ... fun stuff if you're into GEO ...
 
@rene You didn't know that?!
:P
 
Yes, I know everything about it....
 
It's esri though, so I can't help out. :(
 
4:34 PM
@ShadowWizard Nuu, I need my roof >~<
 
@Shaymin too late! @rene just broke it! :D
 
Dang it rene!! Now I'll get rain on me when I sleep!! >~<
:p
 
rene makes rain
 
@Tinkeringbell so what GEO tool can I ask you about?
 
@Shaymin isn't shaymin a plant based organism. In theory that + sunlight could be useful for photosynthesis.
 
4:38 PM
@Magisch Sunlight and Norway.. Hah, you're funny :D
 
It's always Sunny in Norway.
 
Nej
 
So apparently little is known about shaymin's method of sustenance. But it does have grass and 2 flowers as part of its body, so the photosynthesis hypothesis is sound.
 
It's cold, dark, and it's raining on top of snow >.>
@Magisch I can't confirm, nor deny, that statement.
 
@rene Smallworld ;)
(If we're talking the programming bit..I suck at drawing lines!)
 
4:42 PM
@Tinkeringbell Did you try the line tool? ;)
 
@Shaymin Yes :P
 
@Tinkeringbell And?
 
@Shaymin I still wasn't very good at it ;)
 
@Tinkeringbell Are you sure you used the line tool and not the curve tool? ;P
 
@Shaymin Yes...
I'll just program them in, no worries ;)

All gone :)
 
Spam is the main source of happiness here today.... when I get an email notification and find out that it's only spam :) instead of some incidents and accidents, hints and allegations :(
 
7:36 PM
@Shaymin (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ How am I supposed to ping the real @Sha now?!
Sha the WizDowArd
 
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ @sha works
 
@Shaymin I know, but it also (spam)pings you
 
I like pings tho

Oh that settles it then
Yay
Unihedron actually ignored me over that, probably
How do I remember that?
 
daily ping for @M.A.R. so he won't feel neglected
 
7:39 PM
Hey someone else was in charge of that scratches head
Are you a sock Book?
Of course that's the only conclusion I can infer
 
I have been suspected as a sock of 2 different accounts, and because I can't be the same sock, so... no :)
 
Maybe SO was feeling left out over all those "my manager wants me to cause global warming" TWP questions
@Bookends WHOA the missing link
You must have both raptor claws and pigeon wings
 
8:36 PM
He began answering in the last ~30 minutes.... mostly with links to his blog.
But not always.
> The new shiny is always overrated. Be skeptical! Think UNIX! Old and dumb, but it works, that's the ticket! ;)
 
Daily ping for @M.A.R. because reasons ಠ_ಠ
 
9:18 PM
oh wow the SO mods are on a roll today
 
y
 
9:32 PM
@KevinB I hinted that he can go ahead and start vote ring hunting because it seems the flag queue isn't all that big
I think a couple hundred Arjun Singhs will be unhappy tonight
