00:00:50 <oerjan> ah right
00:01:30 <oerjan> my first version had a freestanding (a:) section but i got better
00:02:19 <Lilax> how does one
00:02:30 <Lilax> Create their own language
00:02:46 <Lilax> Like it doesn't have to be an alt of some other language
00:02:52 <Lilax> But just a new one
00:03:05 <int-e> it's easy. you take brainfuck and change the syn... *looks around* *runs*
00:03:12 <zzo38> Lilax: There is many possible ways
00:03:29 * oerjan throws the saucepan after int-e and hits with a *CLANG* ===\__/
00:03:44 <Lilax> no I mean
00:03:56 <Lilax> Not taking a language and changing it
00:04:09 <oerjan> Lilax: i think a good first step is to have _one_ really novel idea to base it around. that's also a hard part.
00:04:38 <Lilax> Well, Ill first need to study up
00:05:06 <Lilax> But I guess I can make a new one -3-
00:05:09 * oerjan fetches his saucepan
00:05:35 <Lilax> :0
00:07:03 <Lilax> I uh.. Got really hyper and made an entire turkey dinner today
00:07:24 <Lilax> And idk what to do with all this food
00:10:56 <oerjan> my mom would have divided it up and stored in the freezer
00:11:05 <oerjan> she was a practical woman
00:11:12 <Lilax> 'was'
00:11:16 <oerjan> yep, was
00:11:18 <Lilax> that's sad ;-;
00:11:24 <Lilax> Anywayd
00:11:27 <Lilax> s*
00:12:55 <Lilax> x.x == [| ] ?
00:13:07 <Lilax> Why would someone send this to me
00:13:49 <int-e> was it because they were inspired by smalltalk?
00:13:50 <oerjan> looks like weird syntax
00:13:54 <oerjan> oh
00:14:03 <int-e> looks like a zero-argument method with empty body.
00:14:32 <Lilax> indeed
00:16:03 <MDude> I would think to make a language it'd help to learn how it's going to be interpreted or compiled and executed.
00:17:00 <MDude> Or how such things are done for whatever you want to run the language you want to make.
00:18:05 <MDude> > x.x == [| ] ?

01:26:21 <boily> zzo38: hezzo38. can I ask you a riichiquestion?
01:29:39 <boily> fungot: maybe I can ask you the riichiquestion?
01:29:40 <fungot> boily: dream or not, for no such amount was needed to keep a lone old man and woman took pleasure in trapping and slaying every cat which came near to their fnord for i recalled that in its experimental stage it had sputtered and purred when in action. in reply to questions hart said he though the escaping truck had headed up fnord avenue, though he knew not why.
01:29:45 <zzo38> boily: What question?
01:30:22 <boily> we were arguing if oya should remain oya even if she's noten during South.
01:31:03 <boily> apparently, it's not an official ruling, and many people always dislodge oya, regardless of the current hanchan.
01:31:13 <zzo38> Both ways are played. I prefer that during south round (and only during south round), oya always remains oya after an exhausive draw even if noten.
01:31:38 <zzo38> However, you can decide what variant you want to play by.
01:32:00 <boily> okay, so it's not just a club fantasy.
01:32:23 <boily> I like it when we can slowly suck oya's points away :D

07:38:08 <b_jonas> zzo38: in http://zzo38computer.org/textfile/miscellaneous/magic_card/cards.txt s/at least one not having cover, /at most one not having covering, / ?
07:41:42 <zzo38> Thank you I fixed it. (I also reworded it a bit more too in order to make it clear.)
07:42:04 <b_jonas> zzo38: how does that interact with banding though?
07:42:29 <zzo38> I should probably clarify that too.
07:43:07 <zzo38> Well, it seems clear to me how it interacts with banding at least.
07:43:42 <b_jonas> zzo38: but at this point, if you have both forming bands AND damage order AND damage distribution stuff in the ability, I don't see what it gains over banding. in fact, banding seems _simpler_.
07:44:20 <b_jonas> so I preferred when it didn't allow you to form bands
07:45:26 <b_jonas> I wonder if you could make a similar ability that somehow works by redirecting damage to it from another creature in combat.
07:45:37 <b_jonas> but I'm not sure that could work well
07:46:06 <zzo38> It doesn't allow you to form bands; it is similar but for blocking. (Bands won't do much for blocking, but here it does something. It could be changed of course, such as by redirection or whatever)
07:46:50 <b_jonas> I see
07:51:02 <b_jonas> zzo38: if an attacking or blocking creature of an opponent assigns damage to both a creature with banding and one with covering (which may be the same creature or different ones), what are the requirements for how I have to distribute the damage to my creatures?
07:51:05 -!- MoALTz_ has joined.
07:51:24 <zzo38> You have to distribute all of it to one with covering.
07:51:48 <b_jonas> zzo38: ok.
07:52:48 <zzo38> However, because you have banding, you can choose which one with covering if you have more than one.
07:53:43 <b_jonas> zzo38: you should mention this in the description somewhere, because it's not clear to me.
07:53:53 -!- MoALTz has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
07:53:58 <zzo38> OK
07:54:11 <b_jonas> I mean, why couldn't I just assing damage to the non-covering creatures, as the banding lets me ignore the damage order anyway?
07:54:30 <zzo38> Yes, I should clarify that.
07:56:04 -!- Patashu has joined.
07:57:17 <b_jonas> zzo38: Do these blocking groups work like bands in that the "when becomes blocked by" and "when blocks" triggered abilities don't trigger/
07:57:35 <b_jonas> Or, um, I'm not really sure how banding works either really.
07:57:40 -!- chaosagent has joined.
07:57:59 <zzo38> Then you must learn.
07:59:30 <shachaf> I'm not sure either. Must I learn?
07:59:32 <b_jonas> Yes, probably. Though those triggers are mostly green and banding is mostly white, so it comes up only if I build a green-white deck.
08:03:11 -!- chaosagent has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds).
08:03:14 <b_jonas> About that, is it just me, or have wotc really stopped printing creatures with simple abilities that give a p/t bonus triggered when the creature is (blocking | blocking more than one creature | becomes blocked | attacking), since about 10th ed?
08:03:46 <b_jonas> Giant Badger is such a creature fro example
08:04:15 <b_jonas> Cave Tiger is another
08:04:26 <b_jonas> and Deepwood Wolverine
08:04:54 <b_jonas> oh, there is one in 10th Ed too, so I'm wrong: Elvish Berserker
08:05:05 <shachaf> I thought there was at least one in RTR?
08:05:12 <b_jonas> and Goblin Elite Infantry
08:06:28 <shachaf> Maybe I'm thinking of Fortress Cyclops
08:06:41 <b_jonas> shachaf: dunno. TSP has multiple creatures with flanking, which is somewhat similar
08:08:08 <shachaf> There's Charging Griffin
08:08:12 <shachaf> From M14
08:08:15 <b_jonas> ah, Fortress Cyclops, nice
08:08:39 <b_jonas> shachaf: oh, nice
08:08:44 <b_jonas> interesting
08:09:27 <shachaf> I guess Guardian of the Gateless also counts.
08:09:39 <shachaf> Maybe it's not a "simple ability".
08:09:51 <shachaf> Also Netcaster Spider?
08:09:59 <shachaf> I guess that's less simple too.
08:11:32 <zzo38> As far as I can understand, the "when becomes blocked by" and "when blocks" triggered abilities will trigger, both for banding and for covering; I don't see why either would prevent it.
08:11:57 <b_jonas> shachaf: oh, Guardian of the Gateless rewards you for multi-blocking, that's like Lairwatch Giant
08:12:13 <b_jonas> (Rightousness doesn't count of course)
08:13:18 <zzo38> Therefore it is possible that a card with covering might be able to block a card that it wouldn't ordinarily be able to block (as long as you have another card that can block it), just as it is possible for a card with banding to be blocked by something that wouldn't ordinarily be able to block it.
08:14:52 <zzo38> Banding is described in rule 702.21.
08:19:16 <zzo38> There are times when "Brainwash" is much better than "Oppressive Rays", "Arrest", or "Guard Duty".
08:20:02 <APic> Yes.
08:20:09 <APic> There are Times for every Action.
08:20:11 <zzo38> Especially when putting it on your own card.
08:20:55 -!- adu has quit (Quit: adu).
08:22:30 <zzo38> It allows you to choose not to attack even if you would otherwise be forced to attack, and it allows you to use mana abilities while declaring attackers. Although, if you are playing blue, you might prefer War Tax (assuming you happen to get that card in your card pool).
08:23:24 <zzo38> War Tax is good because you can use one card on both yourself and on your opponent, instead of requiring two cards.

08:30:47 <Sgeo> THIS AGAIN
08:35:25 <b_jonas> zzo38: if I have a creature with covering and you resolve Master Warcraft, can you make my creatures form covering groups for blocking?
08:35:54 <Sgeo> Scared to sleep now
08:38:43 <zzo38> The answer is the same as whether or not you are allowed to make the attackers to form banding groups. I guess so, but I don't know so I will try to look it up and/or ask elsewhere and/or whatever.
08:39:13 <zzo38> Or maybe that isn't right.
08:40:20 <b_jonas> yes, it might not be the same, because Master Warcraft doesn't let you choose what player or planeswalker a creature attacks
08:40:24 <zzo38> OK so it doesn't allow you to decide bands; the active player still does that.
08:40:59 -!- FreeFull has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds).
08:41:02 <zzo38> But apparently it allows you to make all choices involved for blocking, so in that case yes you can decide covering groups.
08:46:01 <b_jonas> I don't know how Master Warcraft even interacts with costs for attacking or blocking
08:48:38 <zzo38> Neither do I.
08:49:10 <b_jonas> I guess I should find out because Master Warcraft is both a cool card and has nice art
08:49:15 <zzo38> I was also wondering about that, and other stuff about Master Warcraft.
08:49:28 <b_jonas> however, costs for attacking or blocking aren't that common
08:55:50 <zzo38> My guess is that for attacking at least, if it is your opponent's turn, you can choose which creatures attack but then the active player (your opponent) can decide how to pay the costs (and if they include mana, which mana abilities to use and in what order); if they do it wrong it is rolled back and you have to try again; you can choose the same attackers and they have to do it properly this time; if that is not possible you have to choose differe
08:56:01 <zzo38> For blocking it is less clear.
08:57:02 <zzo38> What do you think?
08:58:59 <b_jonas> zzo38: I don't know. It's possible that Master Warcraft can force me to sac islands to attack with a Leviathan if I have two islands, but I don't thikn it can force me to activate mana abilities.
08:59:52 <b_jonas> zzo38: on a different note, have you succeeded downloading the Khans set faq? because I tried again and the website just doesn't serve it.
09:00:51 <shachaf> b_jonas: Didn't I send you a working link the other day?
09:00:57 <shachaf> Maybe I misunderstood what you meant.

09:02:08 <shachaf> Is this thing not a set faq?
09:02:35 <b_jonas> yes, that seems to be the correct link, and I think it's the same, but it's hard to be sure
09:03:08 <b_jonas> I really hope there isn't a separate release notes and set faq
09:03:31 <b_jonas> (except maybe for un-sets)
09:03:47 <shachaf> http://archive.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/faq/jou is also called "release notes"
09:17:36 <shachaf> Does () in Haskell correspond to the Sierpiński space?
09:18:49 <zzo38> I don't know what that is but I can try to look in Wikipedia
09:19:33 <zzo38> I still don't know the answer.
09:20:12 <zzo38> Also, if you can only decide what a card blocks and absolutely nothing else, then you cannot decide covering groups either.
09:20:47 <Jafet> The FSF wants... your old car http://www.fsf.org/associate/car
09:21:33 <b_jonas> zzo38: can't you also decide on which side of the Raging River you're trying to block?
09:21:58 <zzo38> b_jonas: I don't know? Ask that too on other IRC
09:22:47 <shachaf> zzo38: It's a topological space with two points 0 and 1 where only {1} is open.
09:23:25 <zzo38> shachaf: I can see that! It doesn't tell me if () in Haskell is correspond to the Sierpiski space.
09:24:21 <shachaf> zzo38: Well, if I give you a value x :: (), you can observe that x is () but you can't observe that x is _|_
09:24:38 <shachaf> And it's the same way for 1 and 0
09:25:09 <zzo38> Ah, yes I can understand you, but I don't know a lot about topological spaces.
09:25:48 <shachaf> I was looking at http://www.paultaylor.eu/ASD/sobsc.pdf
09:28:07 <oerjan> shachaf: a finite partial order is also a topological space, and i think the CPO of () gives that topological space
09:29:19 <shachaf> why finite?
09:29:34 <shachaf> (and why partial rather than pre? are you talking about the alexandrov topology or something else?)
09:29:37 <oerjan> oh
09:30:04 <oerjan> it's the other way around, a finite topological space is a partial (pre-)order
09:30:36 <shachaf> ah, sure
09:31:06 <shachaf> it's only a partial order if all the points are topologically distinguishable
09:31:12 <oerjan> yeah
09:31:20 <oerjan> i.e. T0 separation axiom
09:31:39 <oerjan> and if it's T1 it's fully discrete
09:31:57 <shachaf> right
09:32:01 <shachaf> not a lot of wiggle room :'(
09:32:18 <shachaf> how much do order-theory/topology concepts translate back and forth?
09:33:11 -!- FreeFull has joined.
09:33:13 <oerjan> hm i think monotonicity may be the same as continuity
09:33:13 <shachaf> e.g. inf/sup, galois connection, total order
09:33:26 <shachaf> yes, that's the idea of this isomorphism
09:33:54 <shachaf> a monotonic function between preorders is a continuous function between their alexandrov spaces
09:34:23 <shachaf> (and vice versa if your space is alexandrov)
09:34:31 <shachaf> but do all these other concepts translate?
09:35:01 <shachaf> i suspect that in a sense most of topology isn't interesting in the finite cases
09:35:03 <b_jonas> this channel is crazy
09:35:15 <shachaf> certainly things like compactness are only interesting in the infinite case
09:35:42 -!- Tritonio has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds).
09:37:07 <oerjan> compactness is a kind of co-discreteness (see harmonic analysis)
09:37:23 <oerjan> and if you're both compact and discrete, you're finite
09:37:27 <shachaf> what should i read in order to understand that statement twh
09:37:39 <oerjan> dual group theory
09:38:05 <oerjan> the dual group of the integers is the unit circle
09:38:15 <oerjan> the first discrete, the second compact
09:38:23 <shachaf> i heard that compactness is co-overtness hth
09:38:28 <oerjan> ok
09:38:44 <shachaf> that was a bad use of "hth"
09:39:18 * oerjan doesn't know about overtness

09:39:53 <shachaf> i guess you're talking about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pontryagin_duality ?
09:40:02 <oerjan> sounds familiar
09:40:36 <b_jonas> hmm, let's set up a combo to infinite mindslave this channel and take it over
09:40:38 <shachaf> i'll have to investigate
09:41:10 <shachaf> but how would you topologically describe properties like "total order" and "supremum"
09:41:14 <b_jonas> I'll grab my Pemmin's Aura
09:41:23 <shachaf> i guess supremum would only be only unique in a T0 space
09:42:35 <oerjan> total order means that given any two points, one is in the closure of the other?
09:43:49 <shachaf> makes sense
09:44:24 <shachaf> i guess you run into trouble soon enough because you don't have a notion of duality in topology in general?

09:46:33 <oerjan> probably

10:04:26 <shachaf> i guess it makes sense that monotonic functions : X -> {0,1} would correspond to upper sets in X
10:10:24 <shachaf> hm, how many functions :: Bool -> () are there?
10:11:24 <elliott> non-strict: 3; strict: 3^2 = 9; total: 12
10:13:04 <oerjan> you know, i fear we may be succeeding in delaying GHC 7.10 http://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/9858#comment:14
10:14:32 <shachaf> funny that the bug has been around for 6 weeks and no one noticed
10:16:08 <elliott> | A_|_ -> B_|_ | = | B_|_ | + (| B_|_ | ^ |A|), I guess.
10:16:19 <elliott> (A and B being flat/discrete/whatever)
10:17:04 <elliott> = 1 + |B| + (1 + |B|)^|A|
10:17:24 <elliott> wait, I was thinking Bool -> Bool
10:17:47 <elliott> it's 6. non-strict: 2; strict: 2^2 = 4
10:18:35 <shachaf> isn't there only one non-strict one?
10:20:32 <int-e> oerjan: Well, it's a serious type system bug, now that SPJ is aware of it he will want to see it fixed (probably by himself but since typeable is involved it may split up into several subtasks) :)
10:22:50 <shachaf> i only count 5 functions :: Bool -> ()
10:23:12 <elliott> non-strict: f _ = undefined; f _ = ()... oh, that first one is strict.
10:23:26 <elliott> okay, | A_|_ -> B_|_ | = |B| + (1 + |B|)^|A|
10:25:06 <int-e> Oh, A_|_ is A_\bot... hard to read.
10:25:15 <int-e> or perhaps ^\bot
10:30:57 <elliott> sorry :p
10:31:45 <shachaf> wait, so what's the topology for Bool
10:32:03 * shachaf should probably go to sleep
10:35:07 <shachaf> {} {⊥,F,T} {F} {T} {F,T}, i suppose
10:36:08 * shachaf goes to sleep
10:53:34 <b_jonas> zzo38: ok, now try some manifest+cytoshape questions
10:53:47 <mroman> hm
10:53:51 <mroman> can't you do case c of { };?
10:54:17 <mroman> oh hm.
10:54:21 <mroman> case c of {} works though
11:03:36 <mroman> http://codepad.org/xMESZWvA
11:05:40 <mroman> which neatly compiles to http://codepad.org/soIMKlDB
11:10:51 <mroman> (The language itself dosen't actually specify what operators do)
11:11:08 <mroman> + is just translated to a call to "bOp"++ ord op

16:50:51 <Jander> mitchs suggested that my efforts to build a Lego EV3 based Brainf*ck interpreter may go down well here :-)
16:51:13 <vanila> so you're building it with hardware?
16:51:17 <Jander> kinda
16:51:29 <vanila> I lke this yes
16:51:41 <Jander> The program is on coloured paper tape and the I/O is done thro' an 8 bit register that is physical
16:51:56 <b_jonas> Jander: how about the data tape?
16:51:58 <Jander> The interpreter will be on the EV3 itself however.

16:53:17 <Jander> To end the program there will need to be an extraneous ] however.
16:53:37 <Jander> That is kinda met if the tape runs out as it's grey blocks behind the tape :-)
16:53:54 <int-e> common implementer's trick
16:54:15 <b_jonas> Jander: why paper instead of colored lego bricks? is it easier to print?
16:54:22 <int-e> (read file, add ] at end, parse a ]-terminated block, and run)
16:54:23 <b_jonas> Jander: and where do you store the data tape?
16:55:42 <Jander> I don't have enough different coloured bricks :-) And I fancied building a paper tape reader.
16:56:13 <Jander> Are URLs okay in here ? I have a pic on G+ page.
16:56:29 <vanila> yes

16:57:49 <vanila> what is the tape/
16:57:50 <vanila> ?
16:58:13 <Jander> Strips of A4 paper cut to the right size. I have no tape spools in this build.
16:58:23 <Jander> Couldn't work out a clean/neat way of doing it.
16:58:24 <vanila> this is really cool :D
16:58:55 <Jander> The I/O bits are on top - the grey toggles. They are all set to 0 in the pic. Bit 7 bottom left, bit 0 top right.
16:59:25 <Jander> The arm on the tracks/rack is used to both sense the state for input and to push/pull them for output.
17:00:00 <Jander> I've still to implement [ and ], but that should be done tonight.

21:27:08 <pikhq> Sgeo: Huh.
21:27:32 <Sgeo> pikhq: http://hpmor.com/notes/progress-15-01-01/
21:27:53 <Sgeo> "General Biotics is a recent startup that is producing a pill-based probiotic that may help to replenish gut flora aka the intestinal microbiome. They intend to donate 10% of profits to effective charities. If you are currently unhappy with your digestive system, this is a quick way to test whether your gut microbes might be the cause. (If you don’t have a current pain point but are interested in trying general improvements, you might
21:27:53 <Sgeo> want to wait for v2.)"
21:32:57 <Gregor> Judging by the stream of information on it, I suspect that probiotics are 5% useful and 95% bullshit.
21:33:03 <Gregor> I might be exaggerating their utility.
21:34:02 <Sgeo> I don't think it's necessarily a good sign that GB was supposed to release a study on the 15th, but delayed it
21:35:09 * pikhq would imagine it's quite helpful for a small portion of the population, and has a lot of associated bullshit
21:36:33 -!- Tritonio has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
21:37:52 <Sgeo> Are there any tests that could be done on a person to determine whether or not it would be helpful?
21:37:55 <oren> "The first commercially sold dairy-based probiotic was Yakult," -clicks on link-> "Official claims state that the name is derived from jaĥurto (with a circumflex over the h), an Esperanto word for "yogurt"."

21:44:40 * Sgeo hopes MealSquares aren't as wooish... although I don't think I would actually go ahead and replace all food with them
21:47:49 <J_Arcane> scientifically speaking my understanding is that save for certain very particular situations (such as having recently been subject to prolonged antibiotic treatments), probiotics are pretty much crap, and unlikely to make the slightest difference whatsoever.
21:49:16 <oren> This mealsquares thing looks good, although i don't see the need to put the orange juice in the square itself. Why not an oatmeal cookie-like thing with a glass of orange juice based drink on the side

21:54:57 <J_Arcane> I still occasionally get horrifying gut cramps and other IBS fun, but it's got better over time
21:54:59 <pikhq> And are probably loads less terrible than Soylent.
21:55:06 <Gregor> The most woonatic thing about MealSquares is that they clearly market to nutters.

22:00:10 <Gregor> No gluten, no wheat, "99% lactose free" whatever that means (so, what, it's 1% pure lactose? That's a lot).
22:00:14 <Sgeo> Real people do have peanut allergies and celiac... although they say they're not necessarily suitable
22:00:27 * Sgeo is lactose intolerant, but they say they put lactaid in it
22:00:32 <olsner> pikhq: eating is fun, deciding and cooking is the chore
22:00:43 <Gregor> Real people have celiac, but 99% of people who seek out gluten-free food are dipshits.
22:00:49 <pikhq> ^^^ This.
22:00:53 <Gregor> (The other 1% have celiac)
22:01:21 <J_Arcane> Bear Valley bars are great, very thorough nutrition content, literally makes you feel like you've eaten a full-course meal, but still tastes something like actual food.
22:01:31 <Gregor> I prefer curry.
22:01:38 <J_Arcane> Mmmm. curry.
22:01:48 <J_Arcane> I'm having a korma on Wed.
22:01:58 <Sgeo> "health benefits of non-gmo soy"?
22:02:51 * pikhq lulz at one thing here
22:03:15 <J_Arcane> Sgeo: Well, it's still hippie shit, of course. But it's pretty good despite.
22:03:37 <pikhq> MealSquares are being made of "whole foods". That is to say, they are trying really hard to avoid anything that's not derived from a plant or animal.
22:03:38 <J_Arcane> (it's also a tiny company who've been around for years; I don't they ever used GMO anything to begin with)
22:03:58 <pikhq> And strongly justifying anything they do use.
22:04:19 <Sgeo> pikhq: better than not using something that should be used, I guess
22:04:34 <Gregor> Hmmm.
22:04:40 <pikhq> I especially love how they're justifying the use of iodized salt.
22:04:42 <Gregor> So, salt is bad, MSG is fine.
22:04:59 <pikhq> Gregor: Hah.
22:05:41 <Sgeo> Hmm, I understand adding salt if this is the exclusively-eaten food. Is it as necessary if it isn't?
22:05:43 <pikhq> Though of course, MSG contrary to woo beliefs is actually utterly mundane.
22:05:57 <pikhq> Sgeo: Probably depends on other dietary factors.
22:06:20 <pikhq> A lot of people probably get too *much* salt.
22:06:24 <Sgeo> "Vitamin C powder: MealSquares include over 100% of the vitamin C RDA without any added supplementation. However, vitamin C is the most chemically fragile vitamin, being degraded by exposure to heat, light, or basic mediums. To be on the safe side, we've added a little extra. We hope you’ll agree that a little extra vitamin C is a good thing."
22:06:31 <J_Arcane> Yes. MSG is perhaps the single most overhyped ingredient of all. XD
22:06:36 <Sgeo> Is Vitamin C overdose possible?
22:06:38 <pikhq> But yeah, if you're eating this exclusively you *better* have salt in it.
22:06:39 <Sgeo> I know A is possible
22:06:57 <elliott> there are people who take astronomical doses of vitamin C
22:07:00 <J_Arcane> bloody 50 years of ragging on poor MSG, even though it's been in 90% of processed food for at least as long as it's been identified.
22:07:01 <Sgeo> So.. does this mean this might not be healthy if I eat it as a snack + other food as normal?
22:07:16 <pikhq> Vitamin C overdose is possible but hard.
22:07:27 <J_Arcane> Sgeo: Massive bombs of Vit-C basically does nothing. You just wee out the excess.
22:07:53 <pikhq> The major risk of too much vitamin C is indigestion and iron overdosing.
22:07:54 <J_Arcane> Those Emergen-C tablets are almost literally pissing money down the toilet. ;)
22:08:16 <pikhq> (vitamin C is a bit rough on the stomach, especially on an empty stomach, and vitamin C increases iron absorption)
22:08:59 <pikhq> So yeah. If you have a little too much vitamin C it'll do basically nothing.
22:09:21 <pikhq> J_Arcane: And it's just the salt of two nutrients.
22:09:41 <Sgeo> I would buy these, but I need a fridge
22:10:12 <pikhq> (sodium + glutamic acid. Sodium is, of course, utterly essential, and glutamic acid is just a non-essential amino acid that you digest perfectly fine.)
22:10:22 <J_Arcane> pikhq: Yup. You more or less make accidental MSG every time you cook soy sauce, meat, or mushrooms.
22:11:06 <J_Arcane> My favorite thing is that MSG is like the ultimate of 'processed food ingredient' scary, but in every health store you'll find bottles of Bragg's Liquid Aminos, which is essentially just a big bottle of the stuff in tasty brown liquid form.
22:12:38 <pikhq> Yep, cause an amino acid concentrate from soybeans is *definitely* something worth doing.
22:12:54 <pikhq> Rather than just, y'know, soy sauce.
22:13:42 <Sgeo> I woonder if these taste good

22:22:57 <Sgeo> Preferably in small quantities
22:23:48 <oren> You can in Toronto with Grocery Gateway but it sucks
22:24:25 <J_Arcane> I will confess that grocery shopping is not a favorite.
22:24:47 <J_Arcane> i suffer from some kind of weird decision anxiety.
22:24:47 <elliott> online grocery shopping is very much a thing, yes
22:25:36 <Sgeo> elliott: as far as I can tell, these things seem to have minimum orders
22:25:38 <J_Arcane> so sometimes a trip is easy as pie and I'm home in a flash, and sometimes I find myself wandering a store for hours while I spiral into guilt and shame and internal weeping.
22:25:44 <Sgeo> This site seems to be $30 minimum
22:26:09 <elliott> what are you trying to buy that you can't pad out with other stuff you'll end up needing anyway to make $30...
22:26:09 <Sgeo> If I had a fridge, I might just buy a bunch of food or something
22:26:19 <pikhq> I advise a fridge.
22:27:22 <Sgeo> I haven't had pomegranates in probably over a decade, I want to try one
22:29:47 <J_Arcane> They're tasty, but a pain in the ass.
22:29:57 <J_Arcane> i recommend just getting some pom juice.

22:35:03 <oren> I am designing a tonal programming language
22:35:54 <Sgeo> Work has a fridge. I could have MealSquares sent to work
22:36:06 <oren> Tone will be indicated by varying the capitalization of the word
22:37:07 <Sgeo> lol "Teamwork OP"
22:37:13 <J_Arcane> unworkable idea of the day: a flavor-based programming language, which code checks based on the taste preferences of the specific compiler installation used to build it.
22:37:16 <oren> E.g. high tone KIN low tone kin, rising tone kiN falling tone KIn

22:50:10 <J_Arcane> h0rsep0wer: I used to be able to do that.
22:50:17 <J_Arcane> probably still could if I tried.
22:50:37 <h0rsep0wer> wow! Nice!

22:52:04 * h0rsep0wer continues singing (OooooooooOOOooooOOOO)
22:52:44 <pikhq> Overtone singing is *hard*.
22:52:54 <pikhq> I've pulled it off, like, once.
22:53:34 <J_Arcane> I learned Tuvan style from a friend, though I never practiced it much. It's really about hitting the right tone to get the nose whistling.
22:56:06 <h0rsep0wer> Tuvan seems to be more subconscious.
22:57:14 <J_Arcane> You basically start with a low drone, and kind of work the vibration up until you hit the sweet spot and then sure enough, in comes the nose whistle.
22:57:43 <J_Arcane> I think it helped that I had experience doing that kind of tone because the friend and I used to do an act where we did the human bagpipes.
22:58:48 <h0rsep0wer> ->> <J_Arcane> You basically start with a low drone, and kind of work the vibration up until you hit the sweet spot and then sure enough, in comes the nose whistle.
22:59:10 <h0rsep0wer> It's true, I tried it now. :D
23:00:18 <J_Arcane> The nonsense word I would sing to hit the zone was, essentially 'Ooowaaareeee' or somesuch like that (can't try it now, 1 in the morning here)
23:00:34 <h0rsep0wer> Like ......ººººººººººººooooooooooooo0000000000000000OCCCCCCCCCCCCC
23:01:46 <h0rsep0wer> I've got a good overtone teacher :D
23:02:51 <h0rsep0wer> Ooowaaareeeeeeeeeeeeouiooooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuiooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
