01:15:05 <zzo38> For some categories, can you have, a fully faithful functor from that category to the free category of a subset of that category's quiver
01:15:35 <zzo38> Does this have a shorter name?
01:16:38 <zzo38> And then, if you have the variant with cancelling, does that have another name?

01:30:51 <shachaf> hi zzo38
01:30:55 <zzo38> Hello
01:31:13 <zzo38> Do you know what I am meaning?
01:31:34 <shachaf> Nope.
01:31:52 <zzo38> Do you know about category theory?
01:31:57 <shachaf> Any idea why the BWTed version is significantly less compressible than the input in <http://sprunge.us/AiIC>?
01:32:03 <shachaf> zzo38: Not much.
01:35:00 <zzo38> shachaf: Does it depend what compression scheme?
01:35:24 <shachaf> In this case it's PNG (DEFLATE).
01:35:33 <shachaf> But every compression program I tried did better with the input.

02:22:31 <zzo38> What is the most number of times you have ever retreated in a single turn in Pokemon Card? (not counting cases in which your active pokemon is confused)
02:34:25 <zzo38> As far as I remember, the most I have done is two times, although I have made a puzzle requiring three times.

03:36:07 <ais523> zzo38: I think I've retreated hundreds of times in a turn, using two Pokémon with zero retreat cost, just because I could, not for any good reason
03:40:05 <zzo38> ais523: OK; but how many have you done for some good reason?
03:40:17 <ais523> probably only one
03:41:30 <zzo38> I have done twice sometimes in order to remove the energy from some other card, which was sometimes useful. Have you ever played an evolution card but then never used any of the evolution card's attacks or powers?
03:42:09 <zzo38> ais523: Can you make up any Pokemon Card puzzle? I made two but I would like to know if you have any, too.
03:42:43 <ais523> zzo38: not really, I'm not used to which cards are which and you wouldn't know the modern cards anyway
03:42:51 <ais523> and I don't really play the card game, I'm more used to the video game
03:44:33 <zzo38> ais523: To make up the satisfactory puzzle, the cards don't matter as long as the old rules are used and all card texts are included. (Make up your own cards if you wish; I recommend naming them CUSTOM 1, CUSTOM 2, DARK CUSTOM 1; and then add levels if necessary for multiple different cards of same name)
03:44:50 <const> does a Aperiodic finite state automaton mean that the graph is cycle free ? because any cycle would in theory create a period wouldn't it ?
03:45:34 <zzo38> ais523: Also, I made two puzzles only so far have you seen them or solved them yet?
03:45:42 <const> oh, from wikipedia Equivalently, a graph is aperiodic if the greatest common divisor of the lengths of its cycles is one;
03:45:48 <const> I don't understand why
03:46:12 <ais523> not sure quite what "aperiodic" means in this context
03:46:25 <const> ais523: the transition function is aperiodic
03:46:39 <const> (a subset of DFAs)
03:46:58 <ais523> aperiodic with what input?
03:47:06 <ais523> given that it's finite, it's got to repeat eventually
03:47:36 <const> ais523: tbh, I'm not fully certain
03:47:43 * const is going based off of wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aperiodic_finite_state_automaton
03:49:25 <ais523> oh, follow the "aperiodic" link; it's talking about aperiodic monoids
03:50:00 <const> right
03:50:09 <const> I'm trying to understand that in terms of the graph of the DFA
03:50:56 <const> ie, the wikipedia article is in term of group theory and I'm trying to understand in terms of a graph
03:51:14 <ais523> the definition in terms of regular languages is interesting
03:51:25 <const> sure, I'll take that
03:51:56 <const> as far as I understand it, its 'any regular language that can be expressed without a *' but I have a feeling that isn't very technical
03:52:49 <ais523> yes, because it allows the complement operation, and you can get infinite sets that way
03:52:57 <const> ah
03:53:09 <const> ais523: what is the definition in terms of regular languages ?
03:53:32 <ais523> basically, any regular language that can be defined using only concatenation, alternation, and complements
03:53:53 <const> ah
03:54:50 <const> ais523: that is basically what I got from 'star free'
03:55:03 <const> but good to know I understood it correctly :)
03:55:07 <ais523> yep
03:55:13 <ais523> I'm not sure complements are normally allowed in the definition
03:55:44 <const> actually, they can't be
03:55:57 <const> because union + compliment -> a much larger set
03:56:00 <const> oh wait, thats for PDA
03:56:05 <const> meh, they might be
03:56:07 * const can't remember
03:56:21 <const> alternation = ?
03:56:56 <const> normally we have union, concat, and star
03:57:06 <ais523> union
03:57:13 <const> ah
04:07:11 <zzo38> ais523: Do you know the answer to my question relating to category theory? Also, are you able to solve either of my Pokemon Card puzzles?
04:07:24 <ais523> zzo38: I looked at them earlier, don't really want to look at them again

06:56:43 <coppro> /win 23
07:18:15 <oklopol> ais523: what do you mean by alternation?
07:18:24 <zzo38> coppro: What is that?
07:19:36 <Sgeo> zzo38, the thing starting with / is probably the command in coppro's client to switch to another ... thingy (channel or other thing, "window" I guess)
07:20:01 <Sgeo> Seeing coppro use irssi and having a vague recollection that irssi does that seems to reaffirm my belief
07:20:17 <fizzie> /win some, /lose some.
07:20:30 <pikhq> It's short for /window
07:20:42 <oklopol> complements are usually not allowed in regexps, because the whole beautiful point is that out of building operations, intersection and concatenation emerge by magic.
07:21:14 <pikhq> irssi lets you type unambiguous prefixes of its commands.
07:21:26 <pikhq> Erm, no, that doesn't quite explain it.
07:21:42 <pikhq> Cause /n is /nicks, but there's more commands starting in n.
07:21:53 <fizzie> That's because /n is a (default) alias.
07:21:55 <pikhq> Erm, /names
07:22:15 <fizzie> But /win isn't one, presumably because it doesn't need to be.
07:22:45 <pikhq> So, unambiguous prefixes plus some aliases.
07:22:49 <pikhq> Kay, actually makes sense.
07:23:42 <fizzie> Sadly, you can't use unambiguous prefixes of aliases. (Well, maybe it's not that sad.)
07:23:45 <zzo38> But there is a ASCII DELETE sign before the slash
07:25:40 <pikhq> Shame that's not getting rendered nicely here.
07:25:57 <pikhq> Utterly invisible, in fact.
07:26:02 <shachaf> hi pikhq
07:26:10 <Sgeo> I see a something there
07:26:11 <pikhq> Hi, shachaf.
07:26:17 <Sgeo> 007F?
07:26:27 <zzo38> Sgeo: Yes
07:26:29 <Sgeo> Either that or 667F, anyways
07:26:37 * Sgeo wonders what 667F is
07:26:41 <zzo38> The ASCII DELETE code is 007F
07:27:18 <pikhq> And U+667F is 晿
07:27:46 <shachaf> Why doesn't my listofUnicodecharacters have U+667F?
07:27:53 <shachaf> As well as a bunch of others.
07:28:08 <shachaf> Also, why are my fonts broken?
07:28:14 <pikhq> Probably omits the CJK space for convenience.
07:28:15 <shachaf> They don't show important characters like ಠ.
07:28:34 <shachaf> Well, it has *some* CJK characters.
07:28:47 <shachaf> Ah, looks like it's mostly radicals and strokes and such.

07:29:19 <ais523> oklopol: alternation = A or B
07:29:23 <pikhq> I am sleep deprived. It is 1:30. I see no connection between these two facts. :P
07:30:45 <shachaf> i,i,i
07:32:02 <shachaf> kmc: Now I want to start a store selling various mind-altering substances just so I can call it the Psychedeli.
07:32:11 <shachaf> Hmm, apparently that name is taken. Never mind.
07:34:31 <shachaf> I like to think of "I,I" as an owl face.
07:36:42 <kmc> me too!
07:37:34 <shachaf> Which one?
07:37:41 <kmc> owl
07:37:45 <shachaf> Oh, excellent.
07:37:56 <shachaf> Does it still work with lower-case 'i's?
07:38:00 <shachaf> I guess it sort of does.
07:38:09 <kmc> i'm not sure about an owl specifically
07:38:11 <kmc> but it's a face anyway
07:40:08 <pikhq> ı,ı
07:41:06 <zzo38> pikhq: Is it daylight saving time in your area?
07:41:17 <pikhq> zzo38: Unfortunately!
07:41:58 <zzo38> pikhq: That is why you are sleep deprived, then.
07:42:26 <pikhq> DST initiated weeks ago.
07:42:45 <pikhq> I still hate the misanthropic bastards who keep it alive, mind you.
07:43:01 <zzo38> I also don't like daylight saving time
07:43:56 <Sgeo> What would happen if everyone just used 12:00 to mean GMT midnight
07:44:14 <Sgeo> No more fiddling with timezones, I mean
07:44:48 <pikhq> We'd see a sudden influx of unicorns farting rainbows, and manly men weeping tears of joy.
07:44:58 <zzo38> Sgeo: Then it may correspond approximately to the hour angle of the sun, I guess (hour angle of sun is 00:00 at solar noon)
07:45:21 <pikhq> Assuming by GMT you actually meant UTC.
07:46:11 <zzo38> It corresponds to the Greenwich hour angle, not the local hour angle anymore
07:46:12 <pikhq> I'm afraid my computer hates mean solar time, regardless of the meridian used.
07:46:28 <Sgeo> pikhq, I'm somewhat uncertain as to the difference? Something to do with leap seconds?
07:46:56 <pikhq> Sgeo: GMT is defined as the mean solar time at Greenwich.
07:46:57 <zzo38> Timekeeping on computer should be signed 64-bit UNIX time in my opinion.
07:47:09 <Sgeo> Ah
07:47:26 <Sgeo> Uh, wait
07:47:34 <Sgeo> What's UTC then?
07:48:08 <pikhq> UTC is defined by TAI, International Atomic Time, with leap seconds to keep it within a second of the mean solar time at 0° longitude.
07:48:38 <Sgeo> Ah
07:49:09 <pikhq> Unlike GMT, UTC has the nice property that one second is an SI second, not a 60th of a 60th of a 24th of the day, whatever the hell that ends up actually being at the time.
07:49:35 <Sgeo> Makes sense
07:49:47 <Sgeo> And I am aware that a second is defined in terms of ... some atomic thing
07:49:52 <zzo38> Yes, the SI second is better
07:49:57 <Sgeo> Something to do with cesium, iirc?
07:50:03 <zzo38> SI units are usually better in general
07:50:08 <zzo38> Sgeo: Yes
07:51:15 <pikhq> It's the period of time from some number of cycles of the light emitted from cesium during one of its electron transitions.
07:57:25 <zzo38> Were you looking for setup program for Visgopher? I do have it available now.
08:11:08 <fizzie> If "listofUnicodecharacters" equals UnicodeData.txt, "[t]here are nine special ranges of characters that are represented only by their start and end characters, since the properties in the file are uniform, except for code values (which are all sequential and assigned) -- CJK Ideographs (U+4E00 - U+9FA5)"

09:02:57 <shachaf> whoa, dude
09:03:00 <shachaf> "sighs" = "size"
09:04:34 <kmc> zzo38: what do you think of Random Standard Time? it's a local dialect of EST where 00:00 through 05:59 are spelled as 24:00 through 29:59
09:05:09 <kmc> (I am not sure if RST switches to EDT or if it's called Random Daylight Time then)
09:05:12 <zzo38> kmc: What is the purpose of that?
09:05:33 <kmc> to shift the day rollover to a time when people are less likely to be awake
09:05:57 <zzo38> I was thinking that might be a reason
09:06:12 <kmc> to avoid confusion between "day" as an aligned 24h interval and "day" as a contiguous period of wakefulness
09:06:39 <kmc> sighsof(shachaf)
09:07:09 <zzo38> Well, use it if it helps you; because of the way the time is written, it is clear what is meant and should not result in anything ambiguous. You simply add hour after midnight same way both ways

15:04:21 <oklopol> elliott: why would you learn the syntax of a language when there's forums though
15:04:40 <elliott> oklopol: that's not the worst part, the worst part is that the exact same person reposted the exact same question /after getting answers/
15:04:48 <elliott> and after responding to those answers
15:05:01 <oklopol> oh i assumed i was seeing things
15:05:12 <elliott> i do that a lot
15:05:26 <oklopol> do or think you do?
15:06:21 <elliott> no
15:06:40 <oklopol> okay.

15:16:44 <oklopol> :D
15:16:45 <oklopol> awesome
15:16:52 -!- augur has joined.
15:17:16 <oklopol> do you do that a lot? it could be a sign of you being a sleepyhead.
15:22:12 <oklopol> so these duddes want this duddes proof of the riemann hypothesis so they could factorize large numbers and break encryptions.
15:22:26 <oklopol> i love how silly that is
15:24:22 <oklopol> i guess the fact that they now know that things based on the riemann hypothesis actually work means they can convince their hacker bosses to start using these algorithms instead of the known ones
15:24:52 <Phantom_Hoover> oklopol, someone proved it?
15:25:02 <oklopol> yes
15:25:06 <Phantom_Hoover> Or did someone "prove" it.
15:25:09 <oklopol> although there is some relevant context
15:25:12 <oklopol> that you may be missing
15:25:25 <Phantom_Hoover> Oh.
15:25:27 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes, there is.
15:25:59 <Phantom_Hoover> What if the proof is in a proof checker and it does efficient factorisation as a crucial step?
15:27:07 <oklopol> and he tells a guy at american journal of number theory that he has an "almost finished" proof, the journal guy is all like omgomgomg i have to see this, finally we have the answer by this dude who couldn't finish his phd, I HAVE TO SEE THIS.
15:27:59 <Phantom_Hoover> Does he actually outline the proof or anything.
15:28:20 <Phantom_Hoover> Or is he just like "guys guys guys I totally have a proof you can trust me I'm from TV".
15:28:25 <oklopol> well the journal guy didn't mention getting any concrete proof
15:28:53 <oklopol> ...that there's proof
15:29:37 <Phantom_Hoover> "Mathematician announces proof that he has a proof of the Riemann hypothesis"
15:30:15 <Gregor> lol
15:30:50 <Phantom_Hoover> "Proof of proof of Riemann hypothesis declared 'flawed', 'bullshit'."
15:31:06 <Gregor> A ZKP of the Riemann hypothesis would be kind of a dick move X-D
15:31:18 <elliott> X = mathematician announces proof that he has a proof of X
15:31:39 <elliott> Gregor: don't you just mean a non-constructive proof
15:32:11 <oklopol> ZKP?
15:32:24 <Phantom_Hoover> No, he doesn't, because only constructivists would care then.
15:32:28 <elliott> zero-knowledge proof i think
15:32:28 <Gregor> elliott: No, I mean if said mathematician had a way of proving that he had the proof, without providing the proof (which is probably not meaningful)
15:32:33 <elliott> Gregor: oh
15:32:34 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: uhhh
15:32:35 <Gregor> Yeah, zero-knowledge proof is what I meant.
15:32:42 <ion> oklopol: Never happened before.
15:32:46 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: you realise constructive proofs are useful for more than ideology right
15:32:46 <elliott> i.e.
15:32:49 <elliott> they give you an algorithm
15:32:55 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes.
15:33:15 <elliott> a non-constructive proof of P=NP would be so anticlimatic
15:33:18 <Phantom_Hoover> An algorithm is... hardly useful for the Riemann hypothesis.
15:33:19 <oklopol> we were reading this article where we prove that some things are decidable
15:33:23 <oklopol> and the proof is fine and well
15:33:28 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: you can use it to factorise numbers!!
15:33:29 <oklopol> and then i ask, erm so what's the algo
15:33:33 <Gregor> elliott: Idonno, it would spark a hunt for a constructive proof.
15:33:34 <Phantom_Hoover> We can /already/ calculate non-trivial zeroes to our satisfaction.
15:33:35 <elliott> *numb3rs
15:33:35 <oklopol> and we had no idea.
15:33:50 <oklopol> although we then extracted it ofc
15:34:05 <Gregor> elliott: Also, "anticlimatic" means "against the climate"
15:34:18 <elliott> Yes.
15:34:32 <Phantom_Hoover> Also what about my nonconstructive proof of the existence of a proof or disproof of the Riemann hypothesis?
15:34:40 <Gregor> elliott: So, a non-constructive proof of P=NP would destroy the environment?
15:34:47 <elliott> Yes.
15:35:11 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: that's useful nonconstructively
15:35:16 <elliott> it proofs ~(~proof /\ ~disproof)
15:35:18 <elliott> *proves
15:35:28 <elliott> erm
15:35:30 <elliott> *useful constructively
15:35:40 <oklopol> omg, his proof of riemann hypothesis was wrong
15:35:45 <elliott> realism
15:36:00 <Phantom_Hoover> Should've totally used my proof.
15:36:06 <oklopol> apparently it's too hard to even claim to have a correct proof in a tv show :D
15:36:09 <Phantom_Hoover> (FWIW I'm not totally sure that it's valid.)
15:36:24 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: uh what is your proof then
15:36:33 <elliott> what are you even proving, is it just "RH isn't independent of ZFC"
15:36:37 <elliott> because even i can prove that
15:36:45 <Phantom_Hoover> (It basically relies on zeta(z) = 0 being decidable for all z.)
15:36:52 <Phantom_Hoover> (I don't know enough analysis to be sure of that.)
15:36:57 <elliott> is decidability relevant?
15:37:11 <elliott> you don't need decidability to condition on an equality in ZFC
15:37:14 <Phantom_Hoover> Existance of a proof or disproof is equivalent to decidability?
15:38:11 <oklopol> Phantom_Hoover: how do you enumerate the complex numbers?
15:38:14 <elliott> decidability of what
15:38:37 <Phantom_Hoover> A thing (wait this is decidability I'm talking about right not something else).
15:38:46 <Phantom_Hoover> oklopol, do you have to?
15:39:15 <oklopol> Phantom_Hoover: hmm perhaps just a dense subset since it's analytic
15:39:30 <Phantom_Hoover> Again, what does density have to do with it?
15:39:47 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: a thing??
15:39:54 <elliott> i don't see what you're talking about at all
15:39:58 <oklopol> well aren't you talking about checking numbers z and evaluating zeta of z to some precision?
15:40:35 <Phantom_Hoover> Well no, I just don't actually /know/ how you decide whether zeta(z) = 0 for arbitrary z.
15:40:38 <elliott> i mean
15:40:43 <Phantom_Hoover> I assume there's some fairly consistent procedure.
15:40:44 <elliott> assume RH is independent
15:41:09 <oklopol> how do you give the z as input
15:41:11 <oklopol> ?
15:41:15 <elliott> a non-trivial zero in ZFC+RH must be a zero in ZFC+~RH because the zeta function is the same in both, q.e.d.
15:41:16 <elliott> actually
15:41:26 <elliott> that doesn't hold, because the value of the zeta function at that zero could be independent
15:41:34 <elliott> which would be fun
15:41:58 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes, this is what I'm talking about.
15:42:11 <Phantom_Hoover> oklopol, I don't know, throw a dart at a dartboard and map its position to C??
15:42:27 <oklopol> sounds like you'll get a computable number?
15:42:50 <Phantom_Hoover> Oh yeah, I forget how the reals ruin everything.
15:42:55 <oklopol> proving the hypothesis in a measure 0 set.
15:42:57 <oklopol> yay.
15:43:22 <Phantom_Hoover> I KNEW IT
15:43:47 <elliott> well
15:43:54 <elliott> just take the reals as countable
15:44:00 <elliott> job done
15:44:08 <oklopol> take a countable model of ZFC
15:44:21 <elliott> There exists a model of ZF¬C in which real numbers are a countable union of countable sets.
15:44:26 <elliott> just do the proof in ZF~C
15:45:00 <elliott> (the countable sets are {3,4}, {4,5,6,7,8}, {nullity, 2nullity, 3nullity}, and {8})

20:44:25 <tswett> I don't know if you're potty-trained yet.
20:44:39 <tswett> But yeah, congratulations on the walking thing.

22:38:13 <Phantom__Hoover> BSODed...
22:38:45 <Phantom__Hoover> I'd've booted into Linux but it won't boot at all.
22:39:16 <elliott> just reinstall for christs sake
22:39:54 <elliott> monqy: hello
22:40:00 <Phantom__Hoover> I have useful data? Or does reinstall not mess with that these days, im stupid
22:41:13 <elliott> get the data first obviously
22:41:18 <elliott> if you don't know how to do that i disown you
22:42:14 <Phantom__Hoover> The people in #arch suggested downgrading the kernel package from a live disk.
22:42:14 <ais523> elliott: the problem often isn't getting the data, but finding somewhere to store it while you reinstore
22:42:17 <ais523> *reinstall
22:42:32 <elliott> #arch?
22:42:35 <elliott> that's not the arch channel
22:42:38 <elliott> ais523: he has a windows partition
22:42:51 <Phantom__Hoover> Yes elliott obviously I didn't go there.
22:42:55 <elliott> Phantom__Hoover: get the latest live medium, boot it, pacman -S irssi on the second terminal, log in here, report to me
22:43:19 <shachaf> elliott: That's a pretty neat representation.
22:43:20 <Phantom__Hoover> Also how do you expect me to get it onto the Windows partition.
22:43:35 <elliott> shachaf: the lambda calculus one?
22:43:41 <shachaf> Yes.
22:43:47 <elliott> Phantom__Hoover: with one of the writable ntfs drivers?
22:43:48 <shachaf> Or the few snippets I saw of the conversation.
22:43:48 <elliott> or
22:43:50 <elliott> via USB media
22:43:54 <elliott> shachaf: Right.
22:44:08 <shachaf> It sounds horrible to use in practice. :-)
22:44:10 <Phantom__Hoover> 'Useful data' here means 'data it took large amounts of time to download'.
22:44:11 <shachaf> But it's pretty neat.
22:44:17 <elliott> shachaf: I'm... not sure why.
22:44:26 <elliott> You need some rank-2/existential for parsing it.
22:44:32 <Phantom__Hoover> Anyway, rebooting.
22:44:34 <elliott> Well, that's not strictly true. But it practically is.
22:44:36 <elliott> Phantom__Hoover: Don't.
22:44:39 <elliott> Phantom__Hoover: How big is the data?
22:44:59 <Phantom__Hoover> Um... several gigs, in all probability.
22:45:06 <elliott> Phantom__Hoover: Do you have live media that can contain it?
22:45:07 <elliott> Erm.
22:45:09 <elliott> *portable media
22:45:23 <shachaf> potable media
22:45:29 <shachaf> Cheers!
22:45:36 <Phantom__Hoover> No, portable nor potable.
22:45:49 <shachaf> elliott: Is saying "cheers" in an American accent the worst crime one can commit?
22:45:52 <elliott> Phantom__Hoover: is it really that important
22:45:53 <elliott> shachaf: yes
22:46:09 <shachaf> It's a good thing my accent isn't very American, then. :-)
22:46:14 <ais523> what's the worst crime the other can commit?
22:46:24 <shachaf> Although it's similarly rhotic.
22:46:30 <shachaf> Which I guess is the point.
22:46:51 -!- cswords_ has quit (Quit: Leaving).
22:46:52 <shachaf> elliott: What if I had a South African accent. :-(
22:46:53 <Phantom__Hoover> Well that and the general inconvenience of rebuilding all the configuration means I'd rather fix rather than reinstall.
22:47:10 -!- cswords has joined.
22:47:27 <Phantom__Hoover> shachaf, ah, but with which rhotic consonant?
22:47:34 <Phantom__Hoover> It's Very Important, is that.
22:47:54 <shachaf> Phantom__Hoover: You mean which 'r' I use?
22:48:00 <Phantom__Hoover> Yes.
22:48:06 <pikhq> shachaf: Isn't South African English generally non-rhotic?
22:48:18 <shachaf> pikhq: I think so.
22:48:30 <shachaf> (My accent isn't South African or anything.)
22:48:54 <shachaf> (Well, it's anything.)
22:49:05 <pikhq> What *is* your accent? "Hard to classify"?
22:49:13 <shachaf> (∃a. accent(shachaf,a))
22:49:16 * elliott takes a guess
22:49:18 <Phantom__Hoover> There are ten different rhotic consonants; different accents use different ones.
22:49:48 <shachaf> pikhq: I'm not sure how I'd classify it, but I'm bad at accent classification in general.
22:50:07 <elliott> shachaf: I've never used that LC representation in practice. Maybe I should.
22:50:28 <shachaf> A Hebrew speaker figured out that I speak Hebrew from my accent once, but I don't think it's a very typical one.
22:50:50 <shachaf> pikhq: If you want you can call me and I'll accent at you!
22:51:03 <shachaf> Although I'm slightly sick right now, so that changes it further.
22:51:28 <pikhq> Non-native accents are pretty hard to classify.
22:52:13 <shachaf> pikhq: I once spoke with shapr on the phone.
22:52:19 <pikhq> If you're lucky it'll be one featuring mostly patterns from the native language because of, say, learning the language from someone else with the same native language.
22:52:24 <Phantom__Hoover> I was once told I had an Irish accent.
22:52:27 <pikhq> If you're unlucky it'll be a weird, mismatched mess.
22:52:42 <Phantom__Hoover> This was after my accent had morphed into pan-RP.
22:52:45 <shachaf> pikhq: "my native language" is also a hard one to place.
22:52:53 <pikhq> If you happen to, say, be a Hebrew speaker learning English from a German speaker. :P
22:53:08 <shachaf> I'm told that the first language I spoke was English, but then I decided to forget it when I was ~3 and didn't relearn until I was ~10-11.
22:53:28 <elliott> <English> :(
22:53:57 <pikhq> Phantom__Hoover: If it was an American, don't be surprised.
22:54:03 <ais523> shachaf: what are the official languages of the country in which you spent most of your childhood living?
22:54:05 <Phantom__Hoover> It was not.
22:54:14 <elliott> ais523: German, Swahili and Lojban
22:54:26 <ais523> elliott: I choose not to believe you
22:54:28 <Phantom__Hoover> It was another Scot (who himself had a pan-RP accent, it's more common than you'd think in Edinburgh).
22:54:34 <elliott> ais523: :(
22:54:36 <shachaf> ais523: I think Hebrew and Arabic?
22:54:49 <pikhq> We don't hear many *different* sorts of accents from the UK, so consider yourself doing well if they can identify the constituent country it's from.
22:55:06 <shachaf> pikhq: _Pygmalion_ is a good play.
22:55:23 <shachaf> Much better than e.g. _My Fair Lady_.
22:57:00 <Phantom__Hoover> `quote pygmalion
22:57:04 <HackEgo> 618) <Phantom_Hoover> It's like Pygmalion and Galatea but more weeaboo. <Phantom_Hoover> Also lesbian.
22:58:59 <Phantom__Hoover> pikhq, what about distinguishing Ireland and Scotland, you guys can do that, right?
22:59:29 <ais523> shachaf: that's an interestingly religiously charged combination
22:59:48 <Phantom__Hoover> And then ais523 found out about Israel.
23:00:15 <ais523> Phantom__Hoover: I am aware of its existence, and thought that that would be the most likely place in the world to have that sort of combination
23:00:33 <elliott> Hebrew is basically a dialect of Lojban anyway
