00:01:09 <oklofok> it's the partitive case of "shallow and spot"
00:01:22 <oklofok> where spot means the dog
00:01:48 <oklofok> sorry
00:01:48 <oklofok> shallows
00:02:21 <oklofok> (shallows meaning shallows spots in a body of water)
00:04:21 <oklofok> it's a popular finnish game where you get on a boat with our family and throw the family dog and your kids in the water. the game is that you try to shoow the family dog before your kids find a shallow spot. if they can't find one fast enough, they drown and you shoot the dog, otherwise everyone's safe
00:04:32 <oklofok> i know it sounds cruel but it's actually a lot of fun
00:04:45 <oklofok> if you hate your life and are a sociopath with a shotgun
00:04:55 <oklofok> i'm very sleepy.
00:05:17 <oklofok> *shoot
00:06:05 <oklofok> also pun not intended with shallow spot vs. dog name spot. didn't even notice that, i'm very tired.
00:06:32 <oklofok> also we use the partitive because you cut them into pieces if they lose
00:07:16 <oklofok> if they win, you cut them into peace easy, which sounds like a good thing
00:07:21 <oklofok> *peace ease
00:07:35 <oklofok> so this one time there was cheese
00:10:03 -!- nortti has left.
00:10:24 <oklofok> i feel partially responsible for that
00:11:23 <oklofok> wonder what i should say next
00:11:26 <oklofok> something about clocks
00:11:29 <oklofok> nah that's too easy
00:11:35 <oklofok> maybe i'll talk about feelings
00:12:06 <oklofok> feelings are interesting because while they don't really have physical form, you can still "eat them", i'm sure you know which idiom i'm referring to
00:12:22 <oklofok> this probably stems from some sort of conspiracies in history when i was going to sleep
00:12:24 <oklofok> night
00:32:44 <elliott> hi
00:41:35 -!- PiRSquared has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
00:53:25 <zzo38> Has the Bible ever been translated into Egyptian hieroglyphics?
00:54:12 <Friendship> I doubt it.
00:55:16 <Friendship> Probably much of the Torah is.
00:55:19 <Friendship> *has been
00:55:44 <Friendship> Or more likely into hieratics, but same idea.
00:55:45 <elliott> The bible was written in Egyptian hieroglyphics, man!
00:58:38 <Friendship> (That was a bad joke by the way, I don't think the Torah has been translated into ancient Egyptian ;) )
01:02:53 <zzo38> Some of the texts probably did have origins in Egyptian ideas. However, what I mean is the modern text, including the New Testament as well. There are probably are Ehyptian texts with similar ideas to texts in the Bible; but that is not what I meant.

01:29:01 <elliott> pikhq_: Ping
01:33:12 <pikhq_> Pong; just got home from work.
01:35:40 <elliott> I forget, do you have to do anything special to get Quod Libet playing gapless?
01:42:32 <zzo38> I would like to know if there is ephemeris software which includes rotation of objects other than the Earth.
01:43:30 <calamari> zzo38: stellarium includes jupiters great red spot.. is that what you mean?
01:43:31 <elliott> pikhq_: Pingping.
01:43:48 <calamari> zzo38: (so you can figure out when it'll be visible)
01:44:26 <zzo38> calamari: That would be one example, I suppose.
01:44:50 <calamari> zzo38: and it might do other planets as well, but I don't know their surface features well enough to say for sure
01:48:21 <pikhq_> elliott: Nothing special.
01:49:02 <calamari> zzo38: well I was curious so I fast-forwarded on mars.. it spun the planet, so I'm assuming yes
01:49:53 <calamari> zzo38: what project are you planning?
01:50:34 <elliott> pikhq_: Yay, thanks.
01:51:31 <pikhq_> If you're unlucky, though, GStreamer will have a bug preventing gapless FLAC.
01:51:50 <pikhq_> (fixed in latest GStreamer, though)
01:53:49 <elliott> I suspect Arch has a new enough GStreamer to avoid that.
01:53:53 <elliott> But it is indeed FLACs I'm playing.
01:58:45 <Jafet1> You could delete quotlibet and install xmms!
01:58:56 <pikhq_> Eeeew, xmms.
01:59:12 <pikhq_> It'd probably be saner to install Winamp 2 in WINE. Surprisingly.
01:59:31 <Sgeo_> What is the computational class of Common Lisp FORMAT strings?
01:59:35 <Jafet1> Sanity is for wussies
01:59:44 <Jafet1> TARPIT-HARD
02:00:05 <Jafet1> Actually by this channel's standards, probably tarpit-medium
02:00:30 <Sgeo_> I asked in #lisp if it's TC, they said no
02:00:37 <Sgeo_> Or, one person said no.
02:00:55 <pikhq_> I'd imagine it's at minimum a FSM.
02:00:59 <Sgeo_> I should note that I'm excluding ~/
02:01:53 <zzo38> calamari: I do not need a picture of the planets. I intend something superior to Astrolog, with more coordinate systems, and more other stuff too including custom orbital parameters (Astrolog has these but in a very limited way), and a few features Swiss Ephemeris also appears to lack. However, apparent diameters would be useful, but photographs are unnecessary.
02:02:13 <elliott> pikhq_: Hey, xmms2 ain't bad.
02:02:17 <elliott> xmms1 otoh...
02:02:45 <zzo38> (Such things as refraction are also useful to have here; as well as switching on/off various things such as annual aberration of light, and finite speed of light, etc)
02:03:47 <zzo38> (Swiss Ephemeris has some of these features, but not all.)
02:04:00 <pikhq_> elliott: If you omit a number, I assume xmms1.
02:04:09 <calamari> zzo38: well maybe it's just me, but if it can produce a pic of the planet spinning then it did the calculation in the stellarium code somewhere
02:04:10 <pikhq_> Thus my response.
02:04:20 <pikhq_> XMMS wasn't too bad. In 2000.
02:04:37 <pikhq_> That's over half my lifetime ago.
02:05:26 <zzo38> calamari: Yes that may be the case. However, is there any standard zero longitude defined on the planets other than the Earth?
02:05:55 <calamari> zzo38: guess you'd have to look and see
02:06:11 <pikhq_> zzo38: Don't think so. We'd need to get the British to set up shop on each one for that to happen.
02:06:23 <pikhq_> And then we can have Martian Greenwich Mean Time.
02:07:07 <zzo38> And I mean not only the planets, but also the Moon and Sun, and also dwarf planets.
02:09:09 -!- Jafet has joined.
02:10:11 -!- Jafet1 has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds).
02:11:25 <zzo38> If we know the objects and the rotations of each one, we can make up coordinates for locations on the surface of the planets, and local ecliptic and local equatorial celestial coordinates relative to those planets, and timezones, and houses relative to those planets.
02:11:54 <zzo38> (As well as where the local tropics are)
02:12:05 <zzo38> (And a few other things too)
02:12:39 <elliott> pikhq_: Question: Who thought it was a good idea to put any user interface (e.g., dials) on the back of a device which is intended to be operated facing forwards?
02:12:45 <elliott> And how can I reeducate them?
02:13:14 <pikhq_> Beats me. The only form of UI that makes sense there is the sort that you literally do not need to look at at all.
02:13:28 <pikhq_> Say. R and L *buttons* on a controller.
02:13:47 <zzo38> Nintendo 64 has the Z button on the back.
02:13:54 <elliott> I imagine it's because they believe the configuration is a rare task, or the back will be readily-accessible even if it involves going 'round to the cables.
02:14:00 <elliott> They are dumb.
02:14:10 <pikhq_> Oh, wait, you mean something that's not even hand-held?
02:14:13 <elliott> Yep.
02:14:15 <pikhq_> Retarded!
02:14:15 -!- Jafet has quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds).
02:14:32 <elliott> Bonus: if you just turn it around to do it, you won't be able to tell if you set it right or not, so you just have to lean over it.
02:14:51 <elliott> Bonus to the bonus: It has sharp corners.
02:14:59 <elliott> I would like my hands back.
02:15:07 <zzo38> The other thing I was looking for, is glyphs for all the dwarf planets in our solar system; some of them do not yet have glyphs (one does not yet have a name; and it should probably be named first before a glyph is assigned)
02:20:17 <zzo38> (2007 OR10 lacks a name.)
02:21:57 <Sgeo_> elliott, why do you have to actually see the dial itself?
02:23:54 <elliott> Sgeo_: Who said I do?
02:24:40 <Sgeo_> Oh, I guess physically reaching it is difficult?
02:25:25 <calamari> zzo38: do you have a telescope?
02:25:27 <elliott> Well, not impossible, but I do have to move it slightly and lean over, leading to awkwardness and aforementioned sharp corner nicks.
02:26:39 <zzo38> calamari: No, I don't. But even if I did, that wouldn't help me to name 2007 OR10 or assign glyphs or anything.
02:27:01 <calamari> zzo38: just trying to understand your interest in celestial mechanics
02:27:20 <zzo38> For the purpose of writing computer programs.
02:27:49 <zzo38> (I do sometimes look at the stars and moon and so on outside; but I have no telescope)
02:28:33 <calamari> I'd like to write a program to use a wii remote to help me aim my scope
02:28:51 <zzo38> Do you have Bluetooth in your computer?
02:28:55 <calamari> but I still need to figure out the math
02:29:11 <calamari> yes, but I was envisioning using my phone
02:30:03 <zzo38> Astrolog does have many features; but some features are lacked, such as GPS input, and negative harmonic factors.
02:32:46 <zzo38> (The reason I want glyphs for the dwarf planets is for purpose of including them on diagrams. There are many kinds of diagrams which you might want them on)
02:33:12 <zzo38> (However, it is only the certain and nearly certain ones which I am interested in.)
02:34:11 -!- elliott has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
02:34:14 <Sgeo_> zzo38, have you ever tried a Lisp?

03:13:29 <Sgeo_> Polynomial?
03:13:53 <tswett> esolangs.org/wiki/Polynomial or summat.
03:17:05 <tswett> Man. The page "Pure BF" looks sort of familiar. Almost as if I had written it or something.
03:17:06 <Sgeo_> register += 0 is not representable in Polynomial?

04:42:24 <madbr> why?
04:42:44 <elliott> madbr: Well, because that just has concurrent communicating processes (~ threads).

05:02:35 <elliott> Guess I'll AUR me some Takao.

05:03:56 <pikhq_> ilari was a regular here...
05:04:11 <pikhq_> He seems to have been in #x264 regularly, though.
05:04:19 <elliott> Ilari was a regular here but stopped being here ~two years ago.
05:04:33 <pikhq_> Thought it was more recent than that.
05:04:39 <elliott> Might have been one year.
05:04:51 <elliott> You can tell by the lack of IP attrition updates.

05:05:12 <Sgeo_> IP attrition updates?
05:05:47 <elliott> Y'know, IPv4 run out and all that.
05:05:52 <elliott> And IPv6 sort of had tiny little nibbles taken out of it.
05:06:08 <pikhq_> Incidentally, RIPE depletion estimated at 2013-03-16. APNIC depleted nearly a year ago.

05:09:35 <pikhq_> And we're still going through 1.34 /8s per month.
05:09:51 <elliott> Which, you know... "Act" is right.
05:09:56 <elliott> So they're not *completely* wrong.
05:10:15 <zzo38> And the first letter of each word is also correct.
05:10:32 <elliott> That's true!
05:10:38 <elliott> That's very true.
05:10:41 <elliott> They were actually quite right indeed.
05:10:52 <zzo38> No, they are still wrong in general.
05:10:54 <elliott> Unfortunately, the large amount of wrong they also were drowned out recognition of this.

07:04:16 <elliott> how the FUCK do you spell tennessee
07:09:48 <elliott> oerjan: i think the problem with sleep is that you can revise a decision to stay awake on a minute-to-minute basis, which isn't possible with a decision to go to sleep. thus the decision to stay awake seems to be less risky.
07:10:08 <elliott> qed
07:10:09 <elliott> as they say
07:10:11 <elliott> in the busienss
07:10:22 <oerjan> i agree with the logic but sleep isn't logical.
07:10:58 <elliott> well, i was using sleep as a shorthand for "the decision-making process when tired at a bad time"
07:11:13 <elliott> not the most intuitive abbreviation i have ever made.

20:32:23 <lambdabot> <no location info>: parse error on input `type'
20:32:35 <Phantom_Hoover> Purely offhand, isn't that non-equivalent to R?
20:33:12 <oerjan> the cantor set has the same cardinality as R.
20:33:15 <elliott> No, it's equivalent.
20:33:20 <elliott> Consider the function "binary digit at position N".
20:33:28 <elliott> It's an infinite stream of bits.
20:33:35 <Phantom_Hoover> Yeahyeahyeah, I get that, but something something something computability.
20:33:51 <elliott> Well, Haskell can't prove that all functions are computable.
20:34:01 <elliott> That's a property of the source encoding we use for Haskell programs.
20:34:17 <Phantom_Hoover> ...what do you mean "Haskell can't prove".
20:34:19 <elliott> We can prove there are a countable number of Haskell programs, but not that there are a countable number of Haskell functions.
20:34:37 <Phantom_Hoover> What is a Haskell function if not a Haskell program?
20:34:38 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: As in, from inside Haskell, not all functions are necessarily computable.
20:34:58 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: For example, you can use Cantor's diagonal argument in Coq.
20:35:06 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, yeah, but where is "inside Haskell"? (I'm not trying to be obtuse here.)
20:35:08 <elliott> Even though the sets in question are "countable" from the outside.
20:35:27 <elliott> "In Haskell" makes more sense if you think of like "In Coq"; "inside" the system.
20:35:45 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Like, e.g. Godel's theorem says you can't prove consistency and completeness "inside" a system.
20:35:54 <Phantom_Hoover> But I can read "in Coq" as "in the C-H logic corresponding to Coq".
20:36:08 <Phantom_Hoover> The logic corresponding to Haskell isn't a very interesting thing to be inside.
20:36:57 <elliott> You might not be being deliberately obtuse, but you are being kinda dense.
20:37:08 <elliott> I never claimed Haskell's type system is a consistent logic.
20:37:47 <elliott> The fact is, (Nat -> Bool) has a greater cardinality than Nat, even if you can prove otherwise based on external factors like program encoding.
20:37:57 <elliott> Obviously a Haskell function is not a Haskell program.
20:38:00 <Phantom_Hoover> I didn't say you did; I said why I was having trouble going from Coq to Haskell.
20:38:01 <elliott> Primitives, for instance, aren't Haskell prorgams.
20:38:31 <mroman> Haskell is the reason I study :)
20:38:55 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: diagonalise :: ((Nat -> Bool) -> Nat) -> (Nat -> Bool); diagonalise counter = counter (\n -> not (counter n n))
20:39:13 <mroman> But my study does not start until in three years.
20:39:18 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Give this function a proof that (Nat -> Bool) is countable, and it'll give you a (Nat -> Bool) it can't count.
20:39:30 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Yes, the "proof" could easily be _|_ or whatever, but in that case diagonalise just returns _|_.
20:39:52 <elliott> The point is, you can prove that function, given an appropriate input, defeats the counter; and so |Nat -> Bool| > |Nat|.
20:39:58 <mroman> Because to study what you actually want to study, you have to study a lot of bullshit.
20:40:20 <Phantom_Hoover> This reminds me of the thing whereby you can diagonalise the computable reals, but the diagonalisation is itself not computable so you can't use it to construct a new CR.
20:41:08 <Phantom_Hoover> Which, yeah, is the proof being _|_.
20:41:36 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Backtracking to Coq again (hopefully you understand what I mean by "inside" now): Consider that Coq's axioms are a *subset* of classical logic.
20:41:51 <elliott> So, obviously, you *couldn't* prove that (nat -> bool) is countable, Coq-wise.
20:42:13 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Similarly, if you construct the computable reals in Coq, you won't be able to prove that all functions on them are continuous.
20:42:57 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: See also: http://r6research.livejournal.com/19619.html
20:47:20 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover has now abandoned his career in mathematics and is going to become a farmer.

20:54:27 <ais523> hi Phantom_Hoover
20:54:35 * Phantom_Hoover remembers that period where he thought ais523 was a mathematician.
20:54:43 <ais523> Phantom_Hoover: I was!
20:54:45 <ais523> I just amn't any more
20:55:04 <Phantom_Hoover> I mean a REAL mathematician.
20:55:24 <ais523> is there such a concept?
20:56:32 -!- MoALTz_ has joined.
20:56:58 * elliott notes that Phantom_Hoover thinks going from doing a degree in electrical engineering to a Ph.D. in computer science makes you less of a mathematician.
20:57:19 <Phantom_Hoover> Nonono, but it doesn't make you a REAL mathematician.
20:57:26 <Phantom_Hoover> Wait, I think you mispinged there.
20:57:44 <Phantom_Hoover> Anyway dude, at least EE involves calculus.

21:02:17 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: No, I didn't misping.
21:02:37 <Phantom_Hoover> Nonono, I mean I thought he was an actual, academic mathematician.
21:02:43 <Phantom_Hoover> *pure mathematician
21:02:57 -!- MoALTz_ has joined.
21:03:29 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: So calculus is more pure-mathematics than logic?
21:03:47 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes.
21:04:00 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Your definition sucks.
21:04:02 <Phantom_Hoover> Logic is a foundational thing.
21:04:40 <Phantom_Hoover> And doesn't ais523 research formally-verified compilers?
21:04:42 <elliott> ...yes, which is *very* pure, as far as matheamtics goes.
21:04:45 <elliott> And no.
21:04:48 <elliott> *mathematics
21:05:02 <ais523> Phantom_Hoover: not really; I do prove that the algorithms behind the compilers are correct
21:05:13 <ais523> but I don't prove that the compilers that are intended to follow those algorithms actually do
21:05:18 <Phantom_Hoover> ais523, yes, which is hardly more "pure" than proving $theorem is correct.

21:05:52 -!- MoALTz has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds).
21:07:05 <ais523> Phantom_Hoover: would you call this a pure maths result?: given a set of equalities/inequalities, each of which is of one of the forms (a = b, a <= b, a <= b+c, a <= b*c), and all the unknowns are known to be nonnegative integers, it is decidable whether a given set has a solution or not
21:07:56 <Phantom_Hoover> ais523, well, TbH, pure maths is a pretty useless concept; I was joking before.
21:08:25 <ais523> you didn't answer my question
21:08:43 -!- oklopol has quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds).
21:09:38 <Phantom_Hoover> It's definitely maths, yes; as I just said, pure maths is just an arbitrary line drawn for largely historical reasons.
21:09:57 * elliott can't understand why someone wouldn't find foundations interesting.
21:10:02 <elliott> Especially someone interested in esolangs.
21:10:27 <Phantom_Hoover> I find them interesting, but not as interesting as the things built upon them.
21:10:40 <ais523> elliott: "foundations" = ?
21:10:52 <Phantom_Hoover> ais523, logic.
21:11:09 <ais523> well, I'm pretty happy that linear and affine logic were invented
21:11:17 <ais523> or Verity probably wouldn't exist
21:11:18 <elliott> ais523: logic, set theory, type theory, etc.
21:11:29 <elliott> literally, the foundations of mathematics
21:11:31 <ais523> yep
21:11:41 <ais523> I'm not convinced that they're useless at all
21:12:15 <elliott> to me, finding them uninteresting compared to other concepts in mathematics is like the people who say that every programming language is the same because they all have libraries :)
21:12:53 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: leaving).
21:15:10 <Phantom_Hoover> ais523, they're obviously very useful, because you can't build without foundations, and they're interesting in their own right; I (personally) don't enjoy studying them as much as other things, but elliott seems to be veering towards declaring that they're the One True Path.
21:15:40 <elliott> No, I just think it's weird to exclude them.
21:15:56 <elliott> What would you think of a programmer completely uninterested in the programming languages they use?
21:16:02 <Phantom_Hoover> I don't think I excluded them once this turned serious?
21:16:28 <elliott> FWIW, you can build without foundations, as evidenced by the fact that mathematics existed before logic and set theory.
21:16:33 <elliott> It's just sloppy.
21:16:44 <Phantom_Hoover> You can't build solidly, then.
21:16:46 <elliott> Then the house falls down and you remember to build foundations first this time.
21:18:38 <Phantom_Hoover> I said that they're distinct from maths, because the general experience is different.
21:19:40 <Phantom_Hoover> There are a lot less *words*, for one thing.

21:35:31 <mroman> Aren't people using languages ONLY because of the library?
21:36:27 <elliott> Often.
21:58:06 <ais523> one of the best reasons to use Perl
21:58:14 <ais523> because it has libraries that nothing else has

23:14:50 <zzo38> nortti: I have not done much at this time. When I have resources to do so, I will be able to do more. But for now they are mostly just ideas and plans and stuff, all of which is liable to be changed.
23:15:17 <zzo38> (I do have a few drawings which are publicly available, if you want to see it)
23:15:41 <oklofok> Friendship: you are pretty optimistic about the future of human civilization
23:16:35 <nortti> zzo38: what kind of cpu are you going to use in it? x86-16? x86-32? x86-64? ARM? MIPS32? MIPS64? m68k?
23:17:10 <zzo38> nortti: I don't know yet; probably ARM. Whatever is used, there should be free C compilers and free specifications (even if not the official ones).
23:17:18 <oklofok> today's morning lecture was about how you can program your own DNA strains and buy them online, and how easy it is to write programs that destroy cells.
23:18:12 <oklofok> (i asked the guy if i could actually do this stuff in my backyard (even though i naturally couldn't observe what's going on), and he said sure, although you do need some salt.)
23:18:27 <oklofok> (in addition to the DNA strains you can buy)
23:19:29 <oklofok> they have basically cured cancer in petri dishes with these, and the program is sort of trivial
23:20:00 <oklofok> a basic toeholding argument
23:20:03 <nortti> zzo38: I'd like to see the drawings
23:21:04 <zzo38> nortti: http://zzo38computer.cjb.net/powerxy/images/Game_Control.png http://zzo38computer.cjb.net/powerxy/images/Remote_Control.png (USB keyboard will also be supported)
23:21:33 <oklofok> also it's basically trivial to do things like wang tiles, and they have sofar made boolean functions and a stackmachine with the small caveat that you need to have exactly one copy of the stack strain
23:21:57 <oklofok> the guy told that they wrote this program, and they did some simulations
23:22:04 <oklofok> and on the 50th run, they had a race condition
23:22:10 <oklofok> which grew a tumor.
23:22:42 <oklofok> so awesome :D
23:22:49 <oklofok> but we're all dead in a decade
23:23:35 <oklofok> also why haven't you people told me DNA computing is something you can ACTUALLY do
23:23:44 <oklofok> i'm not supposed to be the one that BRINGS something here
23:24:15 <ais523> oh, I've known about it for a while
23:24:24 <oklofok> well duh
23:24:39 <oklofok> that's my point
23:24:53 <oklofok> i thought this was all still theoretical
23:25:27 <oklofok> but you can just start programming right away by putting straings of catg in a test tube
23:25:48 <oklofok> and they do exactly what you'd expect
23:25:51 <oklofok> and it's magic
23:27:14 <oklofok> (computation happens by pairing two strains up with the natural involution, and you can easily do tilings like that. to have dynamic behavior, i just know the toehold technique, and that's probably much harder. but building is easy.)
23:27:26 <oklofok> you can buy strains of length 70 online
23:27:45 <oklofok> hmm
23:27:52 <oklofok> i probably mean strand now that i think about it
23:28:11 <oklofok> although DNA strain also sounds great.

23:38:29 <Friendship> I implied that humanity will exist in three hundred thousand years.

23:40:43 <elliott> Friendship: Whencewards
23:40:49 <elliott> (This incredibly literate phrase means: Where)
23:41:17 <Friendship> elliott: Last question.
23:44:14 <elliott> Depends how you interpret "us" I suppose
23:44:40 <Friendship> Hence "implied" rather than "said"
23:44:41 <oklofok> well the solar system itself might survive a couple of years
23:45:06 <oklofok> humanity maybe like 5 and the earth at most 20
23:46:24 <oklofok> the universe will go on for hundreds of years ofc, but it gets bored eventually, and nothingness replaces somethingness. and me and my buddy jesus deem this unfortunate but understandable and recreate it.
23:47:03 <coppro> don't forget the mothingness
23:47:07 <elliott> I conclude that lightspeed in oklofok's reality is at most 200 miles per hour.
23:47:54 <oklofok> i don't think there are distances strictly longer than a kilometer

23:55:35 <oklofok> ethical brain teaser: would you kill everyone and destroy everything if you could have EVERY cake
23:56:05 <Friendship> It's a trick question: If I destroyed everything, there would be no cake!
23:56:31 <oklofok> i'm trying to start a serious philosophical debate here
23:56:49 <oklofok> you think you know everything about cake do you
