00:35:35 <oerjan> @tell Slereah <Slereah> Is there a way to implement combinators using C# delegates without getting stack overflows <-- i suspect this is when you need a trampoline.
00:35:36 <lambdabot> Consider it noted.
00:46:25 <hppavilion[1]> OK, the wikipedia Philosophy trick is freaking me out right now
00:46:27 <hppavilion[1]> Why does it work?
00:46:38 <hppavilion[1]> And is it possible to have a chain where it does not?
00:47:04 <oerjan> mainly because articles about concrete things tend to start with a link to something slightly more abstract
00:47:32 <oerjan> and philosophy is about the most abstract there is.
00:48:08 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: But is there, like, an inalienable reason? Like, MediaWiki code?
00:48:14 <hppavilion[1]> Or is it just random?
00:48:14 <oerjan> so unless you have a _short_ loop (which probably exist), you'll probably keep going up.
00:48:45 <oerjan> there's no intrinsic necessity there - after all, the trick _excludes_ the most mechanical links.
00:49:54 <oerjan> i think people in the channel searched for an exception once, and i think we found one.
00:50:06 <oerjan> unless it was a variant game.
00:50:28 <hppavilion[1]> FUUUUUUUUUUU
00:50:36 <hppavilion[1]> God, it works every time
00:50:57 <oerjan> well sure, it _usually_ does.
00:52:09 <hppavilion[1]> I love how https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linguistics needs a citation that it is, indeed, science
00:52:18 <oerjan> heh
00:52:37 * hppavilion[1] . o O ( Does Uncyclopedia have something like this? Or even just The Wiki? )
00:52:56 <oerjan> i dunno about our wiki
00:53:10 <oerjan> we have the bf derivative game, of course.
00:53:15 <hppavilion[1]> Also, wikipedia vandalism idea: Make all the loops have a distance of 1 (so in EVERY article, the first link is DIRECTLY to philosophy)
00:53:21 <hppavilion[1]> Haven't heard of it
00:54:22 <oerjan> i'm not sure i remember the rules, but you are basically clicking random until you either get a language you made, or a bf derivative. +1 for the former, -1 for the latter. or thereabouts.

00:55:28 <hppavilion[1]> "In classical [[philosophy]], Adolf Hitler is the archetypical [[Assholery (philosphy)|asshole]]..."
00:55:44 <oerjan> is there a misspelling there
00:55:47 <hppavilion[1]> Oooh
00:55:49 <hppavilion[1]> Where?
00:55:55 <oerjan> philosphy
00:56:03 <hppavilion[1]> No?
00:56:09 <oerjan> the second one.
00:56:12 <hppavilion[1]> philosphy is just a branch of philosophy
00:56:13 <hppavilion[1]> hth
00:56:18 <oerjan> O KAY

00:56:58 -!- byteflame has joined.
00:57:24 <oerjan> that's because you don't have the german spirit (Deutsche Volksgeist)
00:57:53 <hppavilion[1]> Dammit, even https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_views_of_Adolf_Hitler applies
00:58:18 <oerjan> applies to what?
00:58:31 <hppavilion[1]> Philosophication
00:58:52 <hppavilion[1]> I kind of want to mathematicize ethics, but I fear that Godellery poses a problem
00:59:38 <oerjan> mathematicizing ethics killed godel
00:59:58 <oerjan> (by making not eating seem ethical, i guess)
01:00:20 <hppavilion[1]> ...nope
01:00:40 <oerjan> i fail to see how your objection applies hth
01:01:24 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Question: When mathematicizing ethics, should one take the axiom of choice?
01:02:03 <oerjan> <zzo38> Are there any languages that are LL(1) but are not LR(1)? <-- iirc no.
01:02:36 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: one should either take it or leave it, no third option hth
01:29:06 * hppavilion[1] . o O ( Shouldn't eligibility to hold office start at 18? )
01:29:58 <oerjan> pretty sure that varies by country hth
01:34:53 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Yeah, but, like, everywhere
01:35:06 <hppavilion[1]> (Well, if the age of majority is different, then change 18 to that)
01:36:52 <oerjan> well, why should it be tied to age rather than skill, anyway
01:37:10 <oerjan> 18 is no guarantee of anything...

22:24:22 <hppavilion[1]> I was hoping to add ɳ to the alphabet

22:25:12 <hppavilion[1]> ...
22:25:13 <hppavilion[1]> -_-
22:25:21 <hppavilion[1]> Someone needs to bug the unicode consortium about this
22:25:54 <zzo38> You could add it anyways even if it isn't part of Unicode, if you want to do so
22:26:06 <hppavilion[1]> Ah, yes
22:26:16 <hppavilion[1]> And eventually they'll have to add it >:)
22:26:28 <hppavilion[1]> (Until then, computer representations will be based on X-SAMPA)
22:27:02 <hppavilion[1]> (X-SAMPA ɳ is n`, so capital ɳ will be written N` until further notice)
22:27:51 <zzo38> You don't have to, you could just make your own code for it
22:28:13 <fizzie> `unidecode ⥥
22:35:14 <hppavilion[1]> Hm... If we call '.' a "point", ',' a "pause", '!' an "exclamation stop", and '?' an "interrogation stop" (and, of course, '‽' an "exclamatory interrogation stop" or "interrobang" informally), then we can also have exclamation pauses, interrogative pauses, and exclamatory interrogation pauses ("interrobang pauses")
22:35:23 <hppavilion[1]> (and, of course, the inverted variants)
22:36:37 <zzo38> I have read someone has made up such thing before, I think

22:42:22 <zzo38> Now my RDF parser program in JavaScript has a few bug fixed and now supports hexadecimal integer literals (this is a nonstandard feature, and furthermore it does automatically convert to decimal in the returned RDF data).
22:48:28 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: I'm pretty sure Unicode already has inverted interrobang, because if anybody were to start using interrobangs it'd be spanish-speakers (as they already decided proper punctuation is important enough to make sure you know they did it at the beginning), so of course there's an inverted one because they need it
22:48:55 <hppavilion[1]> But I like the exclamation pause and interrogation pause
