3:34 AM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda our day is going perfectly smoothly so let's have a heated political debate about this.
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda elections are messed up.
Why can't the world just elect the people I want?
It makes me suspect the world doesn't care about me
designing a doomsday device

@Marco I never bothered to think about it too much or check, I considered myself as "central winged", something Israel once had but lost years ago, sadly. Anyhow, I took online quiz now, and the result is that I'm "Ambivalent Right". :-)
 
Sounds right
 
:D
@M.A.R. OK, shoot!
taking cover
(@Marco in case you didn't get it yet, @M.A.R. is from Iran. (explaining those inner jokes you might miss. ;)))
@M.A.R. no doubt, and sometimes I think that dictatorship can be better than democracy, especially when seeing the mess we're now in. But... in the long run, really really long run.... it's not.
@M.A.R. easy, just take one H from water, worldwide.
 
7:39 AM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda and nothing says friendship like annoying everyone else :D
hides
 
7:55 AM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda What are you going to do with the other H you got from that water molecule?
 
8:13 AM
@rene If you follow the instructions literally you have just eliminated all water available on Earth. Not much left to do for a doomsday device.
 
True that.
 
@JourneymanGeek I see you behind that bush!
 
We left the oxygen bound to one H, right? So we can still breath non-toxic air, just die thirsty.
 
Just don't look too closely
OH seems a bit radical
 
@rene create a chain of H's, to the moon, and move there.
Spammer can't even copy and paste the spam properly. :D
 
8:22 AM
@rene I said LITERALLY
In physiology, body water is the water content of an animal body contained in its tissues, blood, bones, and elsewhere. The percentages of body water contained in various fluid compartments add up to total body water (TBW). This water makes up a significant fraction of the human body, both by weight and by volume. Ensuring the right amount of body water is part of fluid balance, an aspect of homeostasis. == Location == By weight, the average adult human is approximately 60% water, and the average child is approximately 65% water. There can be considerable variation in body water percentage based...
there is no "you" left.
 
Clearly you'll never live to regret it
You'll probably be a pile of alkaline ash but...
 
@JourneymanGeek Isn't that the basic of every Doomsday device?
 
Well it depends.
I've been watching fallout so... :D
 
@JourneymanGeek Lucky you. You could have played Fuga and know what the Soul Cannon is.
on the other hand, you could have been one of the few souls knowing that before Urusei Yatsura, Katte Na Yatsura existed.
 
8:37 AM
@JourneymanGeek you too? /cc @Mithoron ;)
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda Its pretty good
though I'm only 5 episodes in

welp, I'm too lazy to figure out how to do it correctly, and if my hunch is right, shadow will teach me when they see my failed attempt :P
 
10:39 AM
oh, "nice"
write-host "First message";
$comandBuilder.Append("....");
write-host "Second message";
now, why in the world do I see 4 white lines in the powershell console between the first write-host and the second one? (commandBuilder is indeed a stringBuilder) ?
 
@SPArcheon Four dots, four lines. Coincidence?
 
11:05 AM
@starball you forgot "quotes" :D
 
The ellipsis ... (; also known informally as dot dot dot) is a series of dots that indicates an intentional omission of a word, sentence, or whole section from a text without altering its original meaning. The plural is ellipses. The term originates from the Ancient Greek: ἔλλειψις, élleipsis meaning 'leave out'.Opinions differ as to how to render ellipses in printed material. According to The Chicago Manual of Style, it should consist of three periods, each separated from its neighbor by a non-breaking space: . . .. According to the AP Stylebook, the periods should be rendered with no space between...
 
@SPArcheon I know what an ellipsis is.
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda thanks ":D"
 
@starball You "mean" "Thanks"

@JourneymanGeek "o" "h" " " "y" "e" "a" "h" " " "t" "h" "a" "n" "k" "s"
 
@starball k and remember no need for that when giving feedback that's the confusing part. :D
@JourneymanGeek That does not look like a valid post URL.
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda It is infact not a "valid" "post" URL
 
But it does make sense, when you report posts, you can give several, when giving feedback, it's only on a single post.
(unless using the format I don't understand myself yet, e.g. sd 2k which is the simple form)
@JourneymanGeek localhots
huh surprising enough, no NSFW contents for that. :P (checked after a second look. ;))
Just some who appear to use the typo on purpose.
 
12:05 PM
two for the price of one, noice.
 
@JourneymanGeek naa++
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda f
 
12:33 PM
@JourneymanGeek wow this chat is so multimedia now
cyberpunk music
 
1:24 PM
@JourneymanGeek Rest is fine too.
 
@Mithoron Its noooot a binge watch show
 
That's arguable ;p
Was quite bingeable for me.
But I guess I was in a mood for a polite organ-harvesting robots :D
 
Its more of a "sit down at the TV, and not have any distractions" kinda thing for me :D
 
1:38 PM
@Petəíŕd The Spring Wizard MUHahaha!
 
grows 100x in size
shrinks @Mithoron 100x smaller
 
@Petəíŕd The Spring Wizard Harvests Petəíŕd's little toe ;>
@JourneymanGeek Yeah, but it may be better to get distracted in particularly nasty moments.
 
Personally I didn't find it too nasty
 
But it's not for the faint of heart ;p
 
oh no! main SE chat doesn't load! what did I do?
 
1:47 PM
hm
works for me?
@Mithoron but that's also why I'm pacing it out lol
I think I binged the first 2, then watching an episode every alternatish day
 
maybe it's not me but the ISP on my side messing up something with the routing. they do that sometimes.
 
2:00 PM
@b_jonas it works for me. I'm in western-europe in case that matters.
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda ok, nice!
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda I already knew!
 
@Marco ah, nice. How?
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda you had commented, but before that I had already seen it on his profile.
 
@Marco ah, forgot you're a Top Spy. :D
 
yeah!
 
@b_jonas Loading new rooms also isn't working for me, but rooms I have open look to work fine.
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda in your opinion what are the chances of @PetəíŕdTheSpringWizard 's country entering in your war?
 
@Marco Russia, as in direct attack on Israel? Low... luckily.
 
hmmm... how good!
 
Don't think that's even an option our army consider... though maybe we should.
I mean... in case it does happen... not much we can do.
 
2:15 PM
well, in that case the only way to protect yourselves would be with help from the USA.
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda sure!
 
Yeah it's just in a different league.
 
@Marco how you know my country? ;)
 
@Petəíŕd The Spring Wizard I'm a top spy!
 
@Marco don't believe ;)
Checkmate!
 
@Marco They're far too busy in Ukraine.
 
2:16 PM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda ?
 
in Wizards Den, Mar 22 at 9:34, by Petəíŕd The Linux Wizard
@Maveňツ Russia
Busted! :P
 
@Mithical maybe!
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda still not easy to find.
 
2:17 PM
@Petəíŕd The Spring Wizard no problem!
@Petəíŕd The Spring Wizard I think no
 
@Marco Russia is in the league of USA and China, the "Big Nations". Israel is just not there, we're used by them, perhaps, but they won't attack us directly.
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda ahh yes, of course, now I understand what you meant.
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda I wouldn't be so sure they wouldn't attack directly
 
@Marco well as long as USA is on our side, they won't.
As it's like attacking USA, in a way.
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda I know that!
 
But things might change, in the long run.... Israel might piss off USA enough to really lose its protection, then we can really say bye bye.
 
2:21 PM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda no way!
 
@Marco I hope!
 
And when will China invade Taiwan, huh?
 
@Marco when nobody expects it.
 
And after all, is the WW III near?
 
It would be surprise attack, and before anyone can do anything, it will be over. Well, that's the way I see it. :/
 
2:24 PM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda sure!
 
@Marco ah, that's the Big Question. Want to hope it's not, but my pessimistic side keeps yelling "yes it's near!".
We might be in the middle of it, actually, depends how you define "world war".
Doesn't have to be nukes and global devastation.
 
Then the USA, Russia and China will take action!!
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda yeah
 
@Marco you mean if China takes over Taiwan? I think if it's over in a single day, then no, USA won't react.
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda would hardly have
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda I don't think everything would be resolved so easily
 
When something is final and can't be reversed it's very different than when you can still do something and change it.
 
2:28 PM
sure
 
If Russia would have won Ukraine in few days or a week, world would have done nothing, military speaking.
Well, let's hope things would be better, anywhere... somehow... :)
 
well, but USA could be fighting in Ukraine, but they are not!
 
@Marco yeah there are red lines they can't cross, i.e. that would indeed lead to actual new world war.
 
yes, in the same way that if China doesn't take just one day to invade Taiwan, the same thing that happened in the invasion of Ukraine could happen and the USA does nothing directly!
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda yes!
 
@Marco yeah, but China still need the support of USA and Europe, so they wait.
 
2:34 PM
Why does China need this support?
 
main chat is back for me, so looks like it was an intermittent error
 
> I GUESS I COULD GIVE YOU ONE OF THE COMPANY STARS FOR COMING HERE.
JUST FILL OUT ONE OF THE FORMS AND WAIT FROM ONLY 6 TO 8 MONTHS!
YOU MIGHT EVEN GET A JOB AROUND HERE!
^ so guys, be honest. Who is the staff member that worked on Mario B3313 here?
 
always nice to pop in and see how SO's doing... stackoverflow.com/posts/78341859/revisions
@AaronBertrand wasn't aware SEDE was getting active development. That's good :)
 
2:51 PM
@canon can't see it
 
what, the revision history on the deleted post?
well, this was the question title: "there's so many guidelines why can't i just ask a fucking question?"
fml I can't format a block quote
 
ah
you need 10k for that, I'm very unlikely to get that or become a SO mod :D
 
Not sure why I thought you'd be 10k for sure. Title aside, the question didn't have any tags or enough context to diagnose the issue either. I responded with something like, "The guidelines are in place so that the site can be a high-quality, searchable repository of questions and answer pairs which will be of use to future visitors, not just the original poster, i.e.: you."
#welcomewagon
 
3:03 PM
@Marco good question, there's nice explanation here, for example.
 
Nice, thanks, and does Russia also depend on support from the USA and Europe?
 
TL;DR; or just my own view of it: they need the world to keep developing and give their people decent lifestyle, to keep them happy and under control.
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda hmm, interesting
 
@Marco nope, that's the big difference.
 
and why not?
 
3:05 PM
Good question as well, will look for something later. ;)
 
hahaha
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda no problem, you don't need to worry about it!
 
worrying about it
:D
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda SIR, THIS IS A WENDYS
also, there's literally a little note in the answer box telling people not to post gen AI answers.
OP... both did that, and got the site completely wrong
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda haha
 
I'm almost impressed
 
3:21 PM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda so ask it in politics.stackexchange.com or economics.stackexchange.com! :D

Iran attack live updates: Tehran warns of 'severe' retaliation to any new Israeli attack

The U.K.’s top diplomat met with Israel’s president this morning and said it was “clear the Israelis are making a decision to act.”
:(
 
 
1 hour later…
7:50 PM
@Marco yup sounds right, but as for "warns of 'severe' retaliation", well, they said it for years, as we bomb their weapon shipments, bases in Syria, and officers. And I still think they see the attack this week as the "peak" of their retaliation and won't escalate it further unless they'll really have to, e.g. like I said before, have many civilians killed. (i.e. if Israel "only" destroy something military, or secret, they won't retaliate a lot.)
@Marco yeah you have to ask for that in SOCVR.
Or was it Charcoal chat? I never remember those things... :/
 
Charcoal
 
@rene any template, or just get in there asking to get the privilege? I don't remember how I did it. lol
 
let me check
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda charcoal-se.org/smokey/Privileges /cc @Marco
 
ah @Marco has less than 300, but I can vouch for him if that would help.
 
8:07 PM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda note that access to SOCVR is guarded by the RO team. So you have to be vetted by the RO team before privileges are granted there. Users often start in CHQ before they request reporting from our transscript.
 
Thanks, but you don't need to worry about that, I just tested it (and I'm sorry if I couldn't have done that haha)!
I don't want to be part of this, anyway haha
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda hmmm, I got it!
 
@Marco ah, fair.
 
@rene thanks!
