01:52:43 <\oren\> It occurs to me that the rules to my gridless go are sufficiently general to apply to any manifold with a metric
01:53:36 <\oren\> so it could be played on a sphere, infinite plane, or the projective plane.
01:54:05 <\oren\> well, only two-dimensional manifolds
01:57:19 <\oren\> manifolds with uneven curvature could be interesting

04:20:38 <\oren\> hmm, but how would liberties be defined in 3d go?
04:20:52 <izabera> same way?
04:21:00 <\oren\> er, 3d-ungridded go
04:21:23 <izabera> i don't know how ungridded go works at all
04:21:34 <\oren\> http://www.orenwatson.be/ungriddedgo.htm
04:22:37 <izabera> is that interesting?
04:23:05 <izabera> there's something similar for tetris
04:23:17 <\oren\> it means ko fights should get pretty interesting
04:23:59 <\oren\> because you can recreate a previous position, but with a few stones shifted slightly, possibly allowing nearby stones to intefere
04:25:16 <\oren\> I should try to write a computer version of ungridded go
04:25:47 <\oren\> also, the branching factor is a lot higher
04:26:15 <izabera> a computer version wouldn't work
04:26:21 <\oren\> why?
04:26:51 <izabera> because rationals vs reals
04:27:04 <\oren\> well I suppose it would be limited to the precision of rationals on the hardware-- yeah.
04:27:32 <izabera> in a computer it's like a gridded go with larger stones
04:29:09 <\oren\> right, but it should still have a much different tactics than regular go.
04:29:16 <\oren\> well, sort of
04:29:42 <izabera> i think 3d go would be interesting
04:29:45 <\oren\> obviously until people start playing it we can't know[C

15:13:07 <b_jonas> wait what
15:13:10 <b_jonas> this seems strange
15:13:37 <b_jonas> how can they award AlphaGo a dan rank after just two matches with two people? shouldn't they wait to see how he fares in more matches against other opponents?
15:14:38 <b_jonas> what a farce! It's like giving the peace Nobel to Obama
15:14:52 <b_jonas> they're giving a rank in advance, hoping it would motivate Alphago to improve
15:18:16 <FireFly> I think it's a honorary rank in this case
15:18:23 <FireFly> or that's how I gathered it
15:18:31 <FireFly> what I gathered*
15:18:46 <b_jonas> aren't all _high_ dan ranks (like, above 5 dan or something like that) honorary?

15:20:04 <FireFly> I'm not sure how much I should trust Hikaru no Go on this matter
15:21:46 <b_jonas> there… might be a difference between China and Korea about the dan rank stuff that I'm not aware of, or some other subtlety.

20:12:06 -!- prooftechnique has joined.
20:12:28 <prooftechnique> hppavilion[1]: I'd be into it
20:13:29 <hppavilion[1]> prooftechnique: Cool! Follow the repo at https://github.com/hppavilion1/github-lambdanomic and I'll add you to the list
20:13:57 <hppavilion[1]> prooftechnique: I just need one more person (and the last person starred it instead of following, so I'm not sure if they'll get an alert when something goes up)
20:13:57 <prooftechnique> It is done
20:14:09 <hppavilion[1]> (I've been looking for them on IRC every day)
20:15:49 <prooftechnique> I'm already planning a rule that all rules must be provided in a machine readable format, so that bots can be entities :D
20:16:23 <hppavilion[1]> prooftechnique: I was thinking that the format should probably be mathematical- some sort of predicate logic
20:16:24 <hppavilion[1]> :P
20:16:44 <prooftechnique> Sounds machine readable to me
20:16:54 <hppavilion[1]> Yep, probably, other than (a -> b) -> c
20:17:02 <hppavilion[1]> Still readable, but harder-to-read-able
20:17:18 <hppavilion[1]> prooftechnique: And note in the rules that it says any rule-following entity can serve as 0 or 1 players
20:17:32 <hppavilion[1]> prooftechnique: Though also note that the rules only allow you to add rules currently >:)
20:18:08 <hppavilion[1]> So the first rule change I'm planning will be an overriding rule that requires that broadens rulechange scope
20:18:37 <hppavilion[1]> prooftechnique: Of course, you'll have to provide the machine-readable format
20:18:53 <prooftechnique> Even better, design by committee :D
20:19:02 <hppavilion[1]> >:D
20:19:27 <hppavilion[1]> prooftechnique: Will that rule say that the machine readable format is the canonical rule and the english is simply an interpretation?
20:20:02 <hppavilion[1]> NOT the canonical rule?
20:20:08 <prooftechnique> That's probably the most convenient way, though then we get into the issue of rules that can be expressed in English but not the canonical form
20:20:18 <hppavilion[1]> Yep
20:20:40 <prooftechnique> So really we need a supplemental rule to establish that rules must be reducible to some canonical form to be proposed in the first place
20:21:04 <prooftechnique> It's a real chicken and egg situation
20:21:06 <hppavilion[1]> prooftechnique: I recommend we have a file called "predfuncs.txt" that provides a list of builtin predicates and functions that a rule-following machine must support
20:21:19 <hppavilion[1]> In english, as they have to be added by the botmaster
20:21:29 <prooftechnique> Oh, that would work.

21:01:06 <hppavilion[2]> lambda-11235: I might've asked you already, but do you have any desire to play Nomic?
21:01:31 <lambda-11235> hppavilion[2]: What is Nomic?
21:01:44 <hppavilion[2]> lambda-11235: It's a game where you change the game's rules as you go
21:02:06 <ais523> lambda-11235: the short way to explain nomic is "a game in which changing the rules is a move in the game"
21:02:20 <hppavilion[2]> lambda-11235: Here's the initial ruleset I'm using for my game: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hppavilion1/github-lambdanomic/master/rules.md
21:02:28 <ais523> although in practice, it normally turns into "a game, together with a codified method of changing its rules to improve it as you play"
21:02:47 <lambda-11235> Sounds like a Calvin and Hobbes kinda game.
21:03:13 <hppavilion[2]> lambda-11235: Yes, but it's regulated
21:03:16 <prooftechnique> The rules of Calvinball are sacred
21:03:29 <hppavilion[2]> lambda-11235: prooftechnique is playing, btw
21:03:39 <ais523> calvinball has a lot in common with nomic
21:03:46 <hppavilion[2]> It does
21:03:50 <ais523> (actually I've seen someone claim it's not a nomic because the rule "you can't use the same rule twice" can't be changed)
21:03:52 <hppavilion[2]> But nomic is more structured
21:04:20 <ais523> not always
21:04:21 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: And calvinball has no voting
21:04:25 <prooftechnique> And the unspoken mask rule
21:04:32 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: Nomic could be calvinball if you tried hard enough
21:04:40 <ais523> the Fantasy Rules Committee is pretty unstructured, and theoretically has voting but it hardly ever comes up
21:04:45 <ais523> hppavilion[2]: nomic can be anything if you want it to be
21:04:50 <ais523> including a non-nomic
21:04:56 <hppavilion[2]> Yeah
21:04:58 <hppavilion[2]> True
21:05:36 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: Fun nomic rule: This rule is only valid if the halting problem for whether it can be played returns FALSE
21:05:42 <hppavilion[2]> It's paradoxical AND uncomputable
21:05:47 <hppavilion[2]> It's an uncomputable paradox
21:05:58 <hppavilion[2]> (Dear lord, please let my logic be correct. Amen.)
21:06:00 <ais523> hppavilion[2]: many nomics have a rule that if you construct a paradox, you win
21:06:05 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: True
21:06:21 <ais523> although Agora got rid of that eventually because people managed to scam the paradox rule much more often than they produced an actual paradox
21:06:33 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: Did you have to study hexadecimology to get your doctorate?
21:06:54 <ais523> no, hexadecimal is pretty unrelated to what I did in my PhD
21:07:00 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: xD
21:07:05 <ais523> really, numbers don't come up all that often
21:07:08 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: I thought of a new title
21:07:13 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: cdr (codoctor)
21:07:33 <hppavilion[2]> You are a codoctor if and only if your spouse is a doctor
21:07:47 <hppavilion[2]> Which seems at best useless, at worst a way to get a fancy title without putting effort into it
21:07:48 <hppavilion[2]> BUT
21:08:20 <hppavilion[2]> Codoctor has equal precedence as a title to doctor (prec(dr) > prec(mr), prec(mrs), prec(ms); prec(dr) = prec(reverend)
21:08:21 <hppavilion[2]> )
21:08:27 -!- sewilton_ has quit.
21:08:33 <hppavilion[2]> Which means that you can be doctor-codoctor John Smith

21:09:01 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: OK, it is
21:09:04 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: But it's fun
21:09:31 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: It's fun to be able to say "Not only did I get a doctorate, so did the man/woman/other I married"
21:09:36 <prooftechnique> Why codoctor? I'd think that'd make you at best a doctor by proxy.
21:09:48 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: Your spouse is your "other half"
21:09:51 <hppavilion[2]> Your complement
21:09:52 <hppavilion[2]> Your dual

21:10:16 <hppavilion[2]> It's a math joke

21:10:38 -!- sewilton has joined.
21:10:46 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: Yes, but "mister" is the default title, so nobody would care
21:11:20 <hppavilion[2]> Just because you're reverend-doctor smith, doesn't mean you /have/ to always include both reverend AND doctor, or even either at all (you could just call yourself mister if you felt like it)
21:11:28 <shachaf> this is not a good meaning of duality
21:11:36 <shachaf> what if you have more than one spouse?
21:11:48 <ais523> I feel that copumpkin would take issue with hppavilion[2]'s definition of duality too
21:11:49 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: Your dual is the set of your spice
21:11:52 <prooftechnique> Is marriage an involution?
21:11:58 <hppavilion[2]> But if you're male and didn't get any fancy degree, you're mr. no matter what
21:12:02 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: Sure
21:12:11 <shachaf> in general spouse is an arbitrary and not good thing to choose here
21:12:25 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: Wait, no, the function that takes a person and returns the set of their spouses is the involution
21:12:33 <shachaf> ais523: whoa whoa whoa, is that what the story of cinderella is about?
21:12:35 <hppavilion[2]> Marriage is a thing that binds to people into a dual relationship
21:12:52 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: Well who would be better suited as the co- of a person?
21:12:53 <prooftechnique> What about polygamists?
21:13:05 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: "set of your spouses"
21:13:07 <shachaf> The set of every other person in the world?
21:13:23 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: No, the universe is your family at your generational level
21:13:25 <prooftechnique> codoctor seems like it should just mean "not a doctor", and that could be anyone
21:13:26 <ais523> shachaf: ?
21:13:37 <ais523> a codoctor /should/ be a time-reversed doctor
21:13:43 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: How so?
21:13:44 <prooftechnique> Oh, that's better
21:13:45 <ais523> perhaps they turn theorems into coffee?
21:13:51 <shachaf> ais523: The prince turned into a copumpkin at midnight.
21:14:08 <prooftechnique> shachaf: Surely at noon
21:14:09 <ais523> shachaf: ah I see
21:14:17 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: It's not a math joke that is 100% rigorous. Can we just leave it at that?
21:14:29 <hppavilion[2]> Your spouse (or spouses) is (are) your dual
21:14:45 <hppavilion[2]> By definition
21:14:46 <prooftechnique> Is it really a math joke without rigor? Sounds like a conjecture joke to me hth
21:14:48 <hppavilion[2]> You know why?
21:14:49 <shachaf> but marriage is a scam
21:14:54 <shachaf> so i don't accept your definition
21:15:05 <hppavilion[2]> Because the spouse of your spouse is yourself
21:15:12 <hppavilion[2]> sps^2(x)=x
21:15:21 <shachaf> What if my spouse is the empty set?
21:15:24 <prooftechnique> Like, "what's purple and commutes?" is a math joke
21:15:25 <shachaf> What's the spouse of that?
21:15:47 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: The empty set is the spouse of all bachelors/bachelorettes
21:15:59 <ais523> it's not really an empty set, more like an empty monad
21:16:07 <shachaf> The spouse of my enemy is my friend.
21:16:23 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: Even better, the domain of sps is exclusively people in a marital relationship.
21:16:28 <hppavilion[2]> And sets of said people
21:16:30 <hppavilion[2]> There.
21:16:36 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: You are not in sps's domain
21:16:43 <shachaf> How do you know that?
21:16:51 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: Because it's the definition of sps
21:17:02 <hppavilion[2]> sps : MarriedPeople -> MarriedPeople
21:17:06 <prooftechnique> I have two spouses, A and B. How do I define sps?
21:17:12 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: It returns the set
21:17:25 <shachaf> And it takes a set as input, of course.
21:17:25 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: So that above definition isn't 100% correct
21:17:35 <shachaf> So P(M) -> P(M)
21:17:39 <shachaf> But how do you know I'm not in M?
21:17:53 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: Are you married?
21:17:59 <shachaf> none of your business hth
21:18:13 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: Then I don't know if you're in the MarriedPeople type
21:18:33 <hppavilion[2]> s/in/an element of/
21:18:34 <prooftechnique> sps looks a lot like id, with that definition
21:18:41 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: It isn't ID
21:18:57 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: It's just has a domain and codomain that are the same type
21:19:02 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: That's allowed
21:19:04 <prooftechnique> sps {me, A, B} = ?
21:19:07 <hppavilion[2]> succ : Nat -> Nat
21:19:13 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: Empty set
21:19:24 <shachaf> look
21:19:28 <hppavilion[2]> sps : {MarriedPeople} -> {MarriedPeople}
21:19:28 <shachaf> the whole premise is flawed
21:19:39 <shachaf> marriage is an arbitrary thing
21:19:40 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: Well we DID take the axiom of choice
21:19:49 <shachaf> it's not fundamental like duality
21:19:51 <ais523> hppavilion[2]: there are only finitely many people
21:19:56 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: Yes, and?
21:20:01 <ais523> so the axiom of choice seems irrelvant here
21:20:05 <hppavilion[2]> Oh right
21:20:07 <hppavilion[2]> Forgot about that
21:20:19 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: It is
21:20:24 <prooftechnique> Why is it the empty set?
21:20:29 <prooftechnique> I have two spouses, A and B
21:20:49 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: And you're taking the spouse of an entire marital set
21:21:09 <hppavilion[2]> Which is equivalent to the intersection of the spouse of all items of the marital set
21:21:15 <prooftechnique> You said I had to do that :/
21:21:38 <shachaf> What's the spouse of {A,B} if A and B aren't married?
21:21:47 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: That is not a defined operation
21:21:57 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: A and B have to be married
21:22:07 <prooftechnique> Then why would I need sps? :P
21:22:15 <hppavilion[2]> sps({Me, A, B}) = sps(Me) I sps(A) I sps(B) = {}
21:23:12 <hppavilion[2]> (I like doing abstract math on concrete things)
21:23:24 <hppavilion[2]> I is intersection, btw
21:24:05 <prooftechnique> All right, so sps me = ?
21:24:17 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: {A, B}
21:24:29 <prooftechnique> Okay, but now what's sps^2 me?
21:24:41 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: sps^2(x) = sps(sps(x))
21:24:46 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: That's pretty standard notation
21:24:54 <hppavilion[2]> Sort of like sps^-1
21:25:00 <prooftechnique> I know what the notation means, I mean what's the value of it?
21:25:13 <prooftechnique> Oh, wait, I follow, now
21:25:17 <prooftechnique> You do intersection for sets
21:25:18 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: Oh, sps^2(Me) = Me
21:25:25 <hppavilion[2]> sps returns a set, remember
21:25:37 <shachaf> No, it still doesn't work.
21:25:44 <hppavilion[2]> And it accepts a set, though shorthand permits the input to be written just as a set
21:25:50 <shachaf> The spoue of the empty set isn't defined.
21:25:52 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: What's the issue now?
21:26:08 <shachaf> But the spouse of {A,B} can be the empty set.
21:26:14 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: sps({}) = People-MarriedPeople?
21:26:20 <shachaf> You only made it uglier by ruling out one-person marriages, you didn't fix it.
21:26:22 <hppavilion[2]> sps : {MarriedPeople} -> {People}
21:26:29 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: There
21:26:40 <shachaf> If {A,B} are married, then you want sps(sps({A,B})) to be {A,B}
21:26:46 <shachaf> And sps({A,B}) to be {}
21:26:49 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: ONE PERSON MARRIAGES ARE AN ABOMINATION (ax. 3)
21:26:58 <hppavilion[2]> That's a good point...
21:27:00 <hppavilion[2]> Hm...
21:27:36 <shachaf> What you should do is define the complement of a set of people to be the set of everyone else in the universe.
21:27:52 <hppavilion[2]> I think we might be able to remediate this by replacing the set of MarriedPeople in the input with a labeled digraph
21:28:22 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: xD
21:28:30 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: I think we overdid this
21:28:50 <prooftechnique> Underdid, we haven't solved marriage, yet
21:28:59 <hppavilion[2]> I just wanted to be "doctor codoctor hppavilion[1]" someday
21:29:01 <shachaf> If you really wanted it to work, you'd probably want a family of spouse functions, indexed by marriage set.
21:29:09 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: That's a good idea
21:29:17 <shachaf> Maybe it's even a natural transformation.
21:29:23 <prooftechnique> shachaf: Try telling that to my wife~
21:29:37 <prooftechnique> *wives
21:29:44 <lynn> "I now declare you... a non-empty marriage set."
21:29:52 <hppavilion[2]> sps[ms] : ms -> ms
21:30:05 <prooftechnique> "You may unify your constraints"
21:30:10 <hppavilion[2]> sps[{}](x) -> undefined
21:30:19 <hppavilion[2]> Mostly because x is impossible
21:30:29 <shachaf> Just say x
21:30:43 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: OK
21:30:51 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: But the empty set has no elements
21:30:57 <hppavilion[2]> p < 0.5
21:31:16 <hppavilion[2]> (not s/0.5/0.05)
21:31:25 <lynn> hppavilion[2]: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empty_function
21:31:55 <hppavilion[2]> lynn: Huh
21:32:23 <shachaf> OK, so don't define it at all.
21:32:31 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: Fair enough
21:32:32 <shachaf> Anyway you should make it a natural transformation.
21:32:41 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: How do I do that?
21:32:47 <hppavilion[2]> I'm still working on my category theory
21:32:59 <hppavilion[2]> sps[{x}](x) = {}
21:33:08 <shachaf> I don't know.
21:33:25 <hppavilion[2]> So sps[x](y) is basically just x\y
21:33:31 <shachaf> Yes.
21:33:34 <hppavilion[2]> OK
21:33:46 <hppavilion[2]> Now here's the definition
21:34:15 <shachaf> By the way, marriages might not be cliques.
21:34:24 <shachaf> I guess I should say transitive.
21:34:30 <shachaf> Maybe A is married to B and B is married to C but not A to C.
21:34:37 <shachaf> Maybe marriage is a directed graph.
21:34:39 <ais523> why would you expect marriages to be transitive
21:34:51 <hppavilion[2]> doctor(x) -> forall y[y in sps[marset(x)](y)] : codoctor(y)
21:34:52 <shachaf> ais523: Well, hppavilion[2] is using equivalence classes.
21:34:57 <ais523> in the case of heterosexual marriage with two genders, they're antitransitive
21:35:11 <shachaf> Why?
21:35:14 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: So you want digraph marriages?
21:35:17 <shachaf> Presumably a person is always married to themselves.
21:35:33 <ais523> shachaf: if A is married to B and B is married to C, then (with these assumptions) A and C have the same gender and B has a different gender
21:35:47 <ais523> and no, it is quite unusual, with standard definitions, for someone to be married to themselves
21:35:50 <hppavilion[2]> Where sps(x) = {y, z} does not imply sps(y) = {x, z} or sps(z) = {x, y} (index excluded)
21:36:01 <lynn> shachaf: I feel like that doesn't really match everyday usage of the term
21:36:05 <ais523> although given the relaxation on definitions of marriage recently, it might be possible to pull it off
21:36:07 <shachaf> ais523: Only if there are two genders.
21:36:14 <ais523> shachaf: that was one of my assumptions
21:36:22 <hppavilion[2]> Wait, now that we have a marset(x) function, we don't need the index, do we?
21:36:22 <ais523> now, ofc these assumptions aren't true in practice
21:36:24 <shachaf> Oh, yes.
21:36:31 <hppavilion[2]> Wait, no, marriage sets aren't exclusive
21:36:40 <ais523> they are both true more than half the time, but not 100% accurate
21:37:00 <hppavilion[2]> x in marset(y) -/> ~(x in marset(z)) where marset(z) /= marset(y)
21:37:11 <ais523> hmm, surely there's got to be some jurisdiction somewhere that was relying on gender as the only prevention of someone marrying themselves
21:37:12 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: There, there's your nontransitive marriage
21:37:12 <prooftechnique> Maybe it's better to formalize "Marital status" rather than marriage itself
21:37:23 <shachaf> ais523: I think a "heterosexual marriage" with more than two people is a somewhat strange idea.
21:37:24 <prooftechnique> Since then the singleton case is defined
21:37:28 <ais523> it seems like marrying yourself could be good for, say, tax purpsoes
21:37:34 <lynn> Is marriage ever irreflexive?
21:37:38 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: But that defeats the point
21:37:46 <hppavilion[2]> ~married(x, x)
21:37:47 <lynn> I mean. Not reflexive
21:37:59 <shachaf> ais523: Isn't that the main purpose of marriage anyway?
21:38:14 <ais523> shachaf: for some people yes, for other people no
21:38:18 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: OK, what's the current question? In small words?
21:38:46 <hppavilion[2]> Is coppro the dual of ppro?
21:38:56 <shachaf> coppavillion
21:38:57 <ais523> hppavilion[2]: what I'm thinking about is "is there any jurisdiction in which it is legally possible to marry yourself, and would there be any benefit in doing so?"
21:39:12 <lynn> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-marriage
21:39:21 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: There certainly are jurristictions where it's allowed, according to cdr. Ripley
21:39:32 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: Are there any other titles we need to invent?
21:39:38 <shachaf> ais523: It seems to me that it should either be impossible to marry yourself or everyone should automatically be married to themselves.

21:41:04 <hppavilion[2]> shachaf: No, I mean our system of defining marriage
21:41:06 <prooftechnique> Surely sologamy isn't right. Autogamy would more Greek
21:41:15 <ais523> lynn: hmm, that article covers a different side of the subject than what I'd hoped :-(
21:41:24 <hppavilion[2]> prooftechnique: Antimonogamy: Being married to -1 people
21:41:40 <hppavilion[2]> I'm in a nullogamous relationship
21:42:10 <prooftechnique> I think antimonogamy is a marriage that kills the priest
21:42:20 <shachaf> ais523: http://www.selfmarriageceremonies.com/faq/ says there are no tax benefits.
21:42:26 <ais523> according to the linked sources, the sologamous marriage mentioned near the top wasn't legally recognised
21:42:30 <lynn> shachaf: Well, if you're married to yourself, and hppavilion[2] also is...
21:42:34 <shachaf> But that seems like hardly a marriage at all.
21:42:45 <shachaf> lynn: Oh, is the rule that everyone is married to myself?
21:42:53 <ais523> shachaf: gah at the pronouns there
21:42:58 <lynn> Yes. HTH
21:43:04 <ais523> I understand they want to be gender-inclusive, but changing pronouns at random is not a good way to do that :-(
21:43:18 <prooftechnique> Yeesh, who wrote this terrible article? Wiki editors should be all over this
21:43:33 <ais523> it has a couple of cleanup tags
21:43:41 <lynn> Do I have to marry myself to love myself?
21:43:43 <ais523> it could do with another one but I'm not entirely sure what it should be
21:43:44 <shachaf> ais523: There should be a <blink> tag for pronouns.
21:43:47 <lynn> ^ This question is very cute
21:43:53 <shachaf> So they're consistent at any point in time but change every second.
21:44:00 <ais523> shachaf: that's beautiful :-)
21:44:12 <ais523> does it also work on gender-specific words?
21:44:19 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: Well duh
21:44:25 <ais523> that aren't pronouns?
21:44:29 <hppavilion[2]> Yes
21:44:39 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: Of course, it would also include "xe" in the cycle just to bug people
21:44:58 <ais523> hppavilion[2]: at Agora we use e, em, eir, eirs, eirself
21:45:04 <ais523> but this is not just gender-neutral but sentience-neutral
21:45:05 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: Yes, I heard
21:45:10 <hppavilion[2]> ais523: Interesting
21:45:11 <ais523> "e" includes not just "he" and "she" but also "it"
21:45:37 <ais523> this is important because occasionally we have situations where inanimate objects or even concepts are capable of participating in the game
21:46:08 <hppavilion[2]> Whoa...
21:46:25 <lynn> "e" sounds so much like "he"
21:46:39 <shachaf> Does e?

22:23:37 <lambdabot> Consider it noted.
22:24:34 <Phantom__Hoover> lynn, wait are you nooodl
22:25:13 <lynn> yeah! My handles: slowly moving backwards in the alphabet
22:27:59 <boily> hellynn!
22:29:04 <lynn> boinjourly~
22:31:40 <Phantom__Hoover> boily is well ahead of you tbf
22:33:39 <shachaf> whoa whoa whoa
22:34:13 <shachaf> `` sed -i 's/is/is not/' wisdom/mauri
22:34:16 <HackEgo> No output.
22:34:23 <lynn> Phantom__Hoover: yes, I'm amazed imo
22:34:41 <ais523> Phantom__Hoover: I'm ahead of boily on that basis
22:34:52 <Phantom__Hoover> aloril_ remains distant and enigmatic, above us all
22:35:38 <ais523> hmm, and I'm first out of the people who start with an alphabetical character?
22:36:01 <Phantom__Hoover> yes you completely ruined an excellent joke
22:36:42 <Phantom__Hoover> did you know that aloril has been here constantly for well over a decade and has never, as far as i can tell, uttered a single word
22:37:03 <lynn> :D
22:37:10 <ais523> might be a bot in that case
22:37:14 <ais523> but in that case, why the underscore?
22:37:31 <Phantom__Hoover> they're using xchat
22:37:35 <Phantom__Hoover> so definitely not a bot
22:37:43 <ais523> time to go home, anyway

22:43:38 <myname> solved problems are boring
22:51:00 <boily> Alcest is also quite mysterious. and I never saw APic speak.
22:51:41 <boily> /^[aA].*/ nicks are very intriguing people.
22:52:41 <boily> Phantom__Hoover: there's an Aloril in that page.
22:52:48 <Phantom__Hoover> exactly
22:52:51 <boily> the mystery thickens.
22:54:03 <b_jonas> it does
22:54:23 <shachaf> How about b_jon as the correct spelling?
22:54:27 <APic> boily: Then You just do not idle in here long enough ;=P
22:54:42 <APic> And what is the Problem with Bots anyhow?
22:55:29 <boily> An A-nick Spoke!
22:55:37 <boily> fungot: are you problematic?
22:55:37 <fungot> boily: i last saw mukunda on mar 01 at fnord am utc, saying: i don't run into anyone i know.

23:08:47 <myname> like, one line before the last?
23:09:44 <Phantom__Hoover> well, those were the positions aloril_ solved it for
23:09:48 <Phantom__Hoover> someone else solved the rest
23:10:04 <lynn> I once had to implement the 4x5 "Microchess" on that page as a Python exercise
23:10:52 <lynn> It was almost interesting!!
23:13:03 <boily> programming class?
23:13:15 <lynn> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minichess#4.C3.974.2C_4.C3.975_and_4.C3.978_chess The middle one. 1. Nb3+ Kb4 is a funny opening move.
