GreatWahooney: oh look I pushed the storm count to half my resub number. cool!
beowuuf: nice
TheMerricat: So we've got a school simulator. What I'd really like is to be in school again and have a work simulator.
Rourke9: Oh heck yea, we love a Dwarffortresslike.
GhostValv: morning
Rourke9: light?? the enamy
TehAmelie: hiya
Rourke9: *enemy
Lysander_salamander: hello everyone
LordZarano: !time
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 1:35 PM
beowuuf: blinking simulator
GreatWahooney: what! new crappo?!
LordZarano: Good morning!
Rourke9: i do like when people wear hats
Rourke9: Dwarf Fortress-y it looks like?
Lord_Hosk: The Philadelphia experiment is where they turn everyone into rectangular blocks of cream cheese right?
goombalax: what is a school if not a prison for children
Manae: If this school goes Full Dwarf Fortress there might be an issue
niccus: so a normal school
beowuuf: can we date a real pigeon?
CururuGuasu: Prison School…wait, don’t google that
ghyllnox: Delegation >> Indemnity
Simriel: Is this one of those schools where the principle seems to answer to the student council?
Rourke9: As with always with these, I'm really interested in how it surfaces stories to the player. That's like one of the hardest parts of social sims
Simriel: Did Beej commit warcrimes
Texan_Reverend: Prison Architect School is too accurate. A couple high schools local to me as a kid in Texas were literally designed by prison architects. It showed.
Rourke9: for visiting reasons or for war crime reasons
Earthenone: 2326 sprites?
CururuGuasu: That is several sprites
ghyllnox: The important part is getting to leave the Hague
jessieimproved: Ah we play with Fisher Price Little People
Earthenone: !venga
LRRbot: You'd better watch out, you'd better not cry. You'd better like to party, I'm telling you why. The Venga Bus is coming to town.
GhostValv: the individual buses
TehAmelie: it does look like a friendlier kind of Prison Simulator. so it should be rather feel good, right
goombalax: literally sitting with my omnibus of lotr in my lap, fite me
TheMerricat: For you, or us?
Firewhiskers: Main screen turn on
jessieimproved: That would be amazing, headless and tailing a log only
Rourke9: gotta mod the game to ascii art
GreatWahooney: I bounced hard off Prison Architect when it made me micromanage the fire brigade in the tutorial, where nothing else seemed to require micromanagement
TehAmelie: mm, Philadelphia cream cheese
ghyllnox: I mean
Rourke9: all games should have a goons setting
GreatWahooney: what is this, Cromartie High?
jessieimproved: Gender: yes please, or no thank you
Firewhiskers: @Lord_Hosk Highly recommend the sequel because it is terrible and Gerrit Graham gives an amazingly camp performance
CururuGuasu: Hired goons?
TehAmelie: does it loop around so we can't be sure if Angelic is the easiest or harder than Devilish?
ghyllnox: Caviar in the cafeteria here we come
Earthenone: quebec flag?
Invitare: Wales has a dragon
Rourke9: yea that's a great line
korvys: Squeaky Wheel?
Lord_Hosk: You can only be from Bhutan if you scroll up
TehAmelie: we can be Switzerland and look neutral
CururuGuasu: It’s in Greece
Nigouki: is that not the studio name?
niccus: no isle of man?
Invitare: dragon!

Earthenone: welcome to vexilology power hour
gualdhar: next show: VexiLRRRogy

GreatWahooney: I give you permission to clown on the Polish flag
itsaysTRUENO: the rest of canada is getting dumpstered rn go off
TehAmelie: and a latin motto

SnackPak_: sergeJustRight
ghyllnox: Hey! ....yeah...
Lord_Hosk: Listen, When I look for Canada, I look south
dumbo3k: I see, we only accept rich kids, to teach them in Antarctica xD
GreatWahooney: Antarctica's flag is, quite appropriately, pretty cool
TehAmelie: we can make a school with every window facing north
jessieimproved: Hey let's go Matilda vibes
bytecaster: We get to choose the school pet?! Perfect game!
LordZarano: That's not the antarctiacan flag
TehAmelie: Slawter is such a good bad cop name
itsaysTRUENO: game says a punitive system works? kinda sus
Firewhiskers: Detention is just a nice quiet place for the neuroatypical kids to get homework done.
GhostValv: :O
Rourke9: i love her already
Juliamon: My elementary principal was a former drill sergeant. He was really cool though, and a better principal than any other I had later.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Good afternoon my dudes what are we talking about today
Juliamon: School!
Lord_Hosk: Pop Quiz! The enemy gate is which way?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Oh man, school! I’m good at school!
Firewhiskers: Gendered uniforms stink for the enby folks - go casual
dumbo3k: @Lord_Hosk Left!
Boiler_bot: Japanese seems good tbh
beowuuf: @Lord_Hosk like a duck's back, it's down
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: They made me stop going to school though and it sucks. I ran out of school.
GreatWahooney: that is indeed a solid cat
jessieimproved: wow I just looked up Russian school uniforms. just wow
TehAmelie: Major Major
Coloneljesus: John Schoolboy
Meltalar: Prin See Pal
bytecaster: Can chat be the principal?
Cptasparagus: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou I was asked if I wanted to do a 2nd phd recently...
gualdhar: sign up for a PhD program for a quarter and never go back, done
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @cptasparagus lucky
Cptasparagus: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou nooooooooooooooooo, thats a black hole of time I will never go back into lol
Firewhiskers: Who is buying the black market objects - the school or the teachers?
Lord_Hosk: Black boards, Black Pens, Black shoes, Blackberries?
Juliamon: Trunchbull
Rourke9: trunchbull?
Chronomagistrate: Miss Trunchbull
ghyllnox: Trunchbull
ghyllnox: Ms
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I want to go back! My retirement plan is to be that professor emeritus who wanders around and goes to every colloquium and thinks all the students are someone who defended twenty years ago.
Manae: Agatha
TehAmelie: more rebellious students seems like a perk
GreatWahooney: no Supernintendo Chalmers?
v_nome: I love a good Trunchbull Mix
GreatWahooney: I cannot unsee the bread head
itsaysTRUENO: rectangle style physique
bytecaster: Principal Toast is gonna be our nickname from the student body.
Earthenone: for what its worth i think trunchbulls name was agatha?
Boiler_bot: One of those outfits looks like Mr Bean's.
TehAmelie: The Cool School
Invitare: Penguins?
v_nome: Albedo
Firewhiskers: Moonbase Academy
itsaysTRUENO: omg lmao
Rourke9: i love it
SnackPak_: oofa
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I want to go back to school where it’s okay to wander into someone else’s office and say, “do you think I could bodge in a new vehicle to the mission analysis toolkit to simulate some Transformers?”
Juliamon: Not dark, just futuristic
Chronomagistrate: Lol
bytecaster: A Tradition of Having Penguins
jacqui_lantern234: lmao holy shit cam XD
SnowBuddy18: a tradition of penguins
Meltalar: Stay frosty as a motto
Wicker_Guide: Nicholas Flamel Memorial Academy
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: harp! But for HAARP.
Invitare: mountain works
Rourke9: perfect
Coloneljesus: "I went to RIMA"
Lysander_salamander: Is there a penguin?
bytecaster: @Coloneljesus Go Penguins!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Fun fact: Howard J Danforth is the grad student who gets dragged along on that expedition and ends up going insane
jacqui_lantern234: i DO approve of lanterns :p
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: He’s just a grad student!! He didn’t want to be there!
Rourke9: you could have a satellite campus at miskatonic
Invitare: the Antarctic Pineapple
Firewhiskers: I want to take non-Euclidean Geometry 201 here
jacqui_lantern234: ESPECIALLY if theyre lanterns made of pumpkins :p
niccus: is this school right over mt. erebus
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: We had a Minecraft lab called the Miskatonic University Satellite Campus Annex B that had a Howard J Danforth Memorial Conference Room. Grad students vent in unusual ways.
Firewhiskers: Visiting school teams can't comprehend the gymnasium
DoodlestheGreat: Oh, nobody will make that mistake of you folks.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I would not want a hall pass to a school with Lovecraftian geometry
TehAmelie: we must take the good ideas from Lovecraft's work and remove it from them
LordZarano: "Delivetrees"
bytecaster: Room, schools have room
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Does that say “Delivering Garbage”?
bytecaster: Also chair
Rourke9: My guess is this is probably more of a management sim than a social sim?
korvys: Oh wow, this really is a Prison Simulator knockoff (affectionate)
Firewhiskers: We have to hire Jeffrey Combs as a teacher here.
bytecaster: To be precise, it is Delive Tree Tree Tree Tree Garbage
itsaysTRUENO: Antarctica is way more green than i remember
TehAmelie: looks nice. can we have class outdoors?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Garbage zone is usually Wednesday though isn’t it?
Firewhiskers: How many of our students are The Thing?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @itsaystrueno well, it is the Ross Ice Shelf *Memorial*, so…
bytecaster: Versailles?
BrowneePoints: It's not Delivery it's DiGarbage
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @firewhiskers does the Thing count as many students or one student in many discrete units
Rourke9: do students need dorms, or is it not that type of school?
iris_of_ether: I'm now remembering a line from the MMO The Secret World: "No running in the halls! They are quite slick with gore!"
bytecaster: @Rourke9 I don't think our students want to commute to Antarctica.
Firewhiskers: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Hive minds should count as a single student for grading purposes
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: But they’ll totally mess up the classroom occupancy averages
Firewhiskers: Wait, have the parents just dumped their students in a field and expected a school to show up at some point?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: What’s the Escher school from Utena called again
bytecaster: Ohtori?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Sounds right. Let’s build that. Build a regular school and then explode it and hit pause mid-explosion.
bytecaster: Even the Versailles one?

DoodlestheGreat: BIG SALE! ALL FLOORS ONLY $20!
LordZarano: @Rourke9 Hmm, I wonder if there has been any children born in Antarctica
bytecaster: As a maths person, you can never have enough board sapce!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @doodlesthegreat Piff’s Semiannual Floor Sale (planar geometry not guaranteed)
Firewhiskers: @LordZarano I think people have flown to Antarctica specifically to have their kids there?
UnusuallyLargeMoth: wait sorry is this Rimworld University or something???
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I don’t think there have been kids born in Antarctica. There have been sanctioned Magic tournaments though.
Rourke9: but have any children been conceived *and* born there
DoodlestheGreat: @UnusuallyLargeMoth Ya know, I think that might be a fair assessment.
bytecaster: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Are you only allowed to play snow permanents there?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @bytecaster you know, I’m not sure what format it was. I hope it was Ice Age block draft.
Zu_o: @bytecaster no, but you do put your cards in the freezer to warm them up.
Firewhiskers: @Rourke9 That's a big commitment to a bit
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: One of my great draft highs and also disappointments was Modern Horizons getting to 9 out of 10 snow permanents needed to flip Marit Lage. One day! One daaaaay.
LordZarano: @Rourke9 I guess if a researcher got pregnant they'd probably fly out pretty early into the 9 months
Firewhiskers: @Firewhiskers Thought I should say "Antarctic doula" would be the best thing to put on your resume
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I think if you’re pregnant in Antarctica they probably airlift you out
Firewhiskers: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou The main issue is the lack of medical services for pregnant folks.
bytecaster: Important!
Gekyouryuu: Upside to being born in Antarctica: you're legally allowed to call each and every other person on the planet a "damn yankee"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Yeah I don’t think that’s a situation where they’re gonna be like “eh it’ll be fine.” They probably send you home at that point.
margieargie: Huh, I wonder how high-maintenance a bowl is as a pet. Do you need something for it to eat out o- wait...
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: i think thats the same engine as that prison game
Rourke9: the trick with schools is no windows or clocks so the kids stay inside gambling
bytecaster: Children don't need natural light!
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: and prisons dont need natural light
Lord_Hosk: Really reminds me of the prison game
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I bet it does use the same engine
Firewhiskers: Alas your academy is too new to have legacies for Basically Free and Plentiful Cash
Firewhiskers: (This is not an endorsement of legacy students.)
LordZarano: This seems like a game that LGIO would play
Lord_Hosk: Masters degrees are for chumps!
bytecaster: Can we get someone with a PhD but is terrible at teaching?
Firewhiskers: @bytecaster But then we'd be a college
Simriel: I mean does anyone?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Pretty sure nobody knows how to hire teachers
SnowBunSarah: Hiring a teacher for $2000? What is this, the US?
bytecaster: Who needs teachers in a school anyway
Firewhiskers: Jiggle some grants out the front door and see how many teachers show up
Rourke9: its !Fun!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: What if instead of teachers we developed an AI tool :3
RealGamerCow: Cori has clearly not watched any of Cameron's Civ 6 streams
Simriel: Ah, Cameron has engaged his 4X brain
Lord_Hosk: Not being able to hire teachers? what is this a Detroit public school HEYOOOOH cutting commentary!
DarthRagnar815: I feel that in my soul, Cam.
GreatWahooney: Greg Universe taught me it's always ok to bail
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: And then we had the teachers teach the AI! Foolproof plan!
Astramentha: Clearly Cori doesn’t know the ADHD failed gifted kid trauma we have
DoodlestheGreat: You haven't been watching him play Civ 6 in his channel, Cori. ConcernDoge
Tangsm: So, the kids just use the teacher-less classroom as a bathroom?
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: how is this school funded?
GreatWahooney: I don't know either, which is why I never bothered getting one
midnightcurryjazz: Im almost 70 hours into BG3. Help
Firewhiskers: I assume that without a schedule our teacher will hang out in the teacher's lounge all day, reading and drinking the substandard coffee
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @midnightcurryjazz has it even been out for 70 hours??
LordZarano: @midnightcurryjazz You can do it! You can get to 70! I believe in you! PrideRise

TehAmelie: in my eight year we had a kitchen in the classroom. now that was convenient

Rourke9: and this is *with* the 30% black market discount?

aquinas_0: no teachers lounge?
aquinas_0: where will the coffee come from
aquinas_0: ?
bytecaster: Not overworking that one teacher at all
margieargie: They can share, it's fine
bytecaster: It's a disciplinary measure, the most disruptive student has to stand!
Tangsm: Just give that one extra student a chair, but it faces the rest of the class.
TehAmelie: TIL doctor offices are designed so the doctor is closer to the door than the patients in case they need to run. wonder if that'd be useful to schools
GreatWahooney: I have never once seen a doctor's office like that
GreatWahooney: ok, maybe some of them were like that
Thefluffiestguineapig: Sorry Professors lrrCORI lrrCAMERON , my shadowing went late, are we doing a school optimization lesson or just a school success lesson?
bytecaster: There is still grass under the entry door
Juliamon: Thefluffiestguineapig It's a totally-not-a-prison sim
Tangsm: @aquinas_0 There is a pet bowl in the principal's office. that might be it.
TehAmelie: the opposite of a door mat
bytecaster: Perfection
TehAmelie: a door foot enfilthener
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon Ah yes, just like US Healthcare is totally not weed out the poor sim
Thefluffiestguineapig: What age are the prisoners?
GreatWahooney: basic facilities? a novel idea! let's get our best people on that
Thefluffiestguineapig: And why is there the word Garbage on the lawn?
105 raiders from Seabats have joined!

bytecaster: Today, we are teaching the students basic combos!
Omthebox: I dont wana go back
bytecaster: Lots of people should research social skills, I reckon
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: lol. you can hypnotize your students??
Thefluffiestguineapig: @bytecaster Hope none of them are gluten intolerant!
TehAmelie: or, who are we playing as? the school shareholders?
Skajetolaf: Is this a mod for Prison Architect? If so should we interpret that as a commentary on the modern school system?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @kaliuniqueusernamesaredum Is that the first step to indoctrination? Hypnotize and lull into acceptance?
SnowBunSarah: Teaching the students basic combos? I suppose they'll need to know the value menu for where they're ending up.
Cptasparagus: serge was looking at a game like this recently where you decide the fate of people in a town and pair them up... decided it was too close to eugenics
RealGamerCow: woo, first period free time!
TehAmelie: something school to Prison Architect pipeline
TehAmelie: something
iris_of_ether: @tehamelie I was thinking it
RealGamerCow: Classroom 1 is an animal house
TehAmelie: no, we're pretty sure it's its own game but probably using the PA engine
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Are there set tracts? One prison architect, one warden etc
Bratmon: For a class where no teacher ever showed up, Classroom 1 is less destroyed than I expected.

Bratmon: "I bought a garbage can with the hope that someday I'll be able to afford to empty it. Anyway, this school is going great."
bytecaster: @kaliuniqueusernamesaredum It's the great atmosphere, with all the trash on the ground and all.

TehAmelie: wait, do we have windows?
bytecaster: I worry about the bladder stat
Rourke9: tag yourslef im a mature nerd
bytecaster: Wait, where?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @bytecaster What age group are the students?

TehAmelie: that girl had a "very comfortable" pee. . .and we don't have bathrooms
Thefluffiestguineapig: @incredulouspasserby I mean, where do you think?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: We have to research bathrooms? I feel like “bathroom” was one of the first subjects researched by humankind.
maxthefourth: The art of sculpting the porcelain throne
EricTheOrange: yay?
TehAmelie: here i was gonna guess diapers
bytecaster: Good thing we didn't sell all the bushes
gsyhiap: Oh my miiliOhno

bytecaster: Wait, aren't you supposed to not leave anything behind in Antarctica, especially not poo
TehAmelie: you know how much human waste there is in real Antarctica. . .
Thefluffiestguineapig: "This is how we terraform Antarctica"
GreatWahooney: so uh, how are we on researching toilets?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Can we adjust the cafeteria diet to get more nitrogen and phosphorus into the soil?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Also probably mastadon shits
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Gotta get those micronutrients
bytecaster: Maybe we should reestablish the vending machine?
RealGamerCow: *goes to the bush where that kid pooped* Look, a burger!
gsyhiap: Only thing you'll find in the bushes is logs.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Pull a Martian here and grow potatoes?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @RealGamerCow Dude, if your poop looks like a burger, that is not ideal
incredulouspasserby: I feel like that’s when inadvisable bank loans become advisable.
bytecaster: At the very least the hand sanitizer would be nice after the children come back from the bushes
Juliamon: Everyone knows bathrooms are just smoking/vaping rooms anyway, might as well have them use the bushes
LordZarano: "If you can call this living"
TehAmelie: i just remembered, you know how they only get canned food in Antarctica? apparently, all of it is also expired
EricTheOrange: vending machine is basicly a cafiteria right?
shendaras: I feel like I now have a better understanding of the state of education.
iris_of_ether: Burger to Bush Pipeline
Dragonality: Wow, exactly like my high school
bytecaster: The most unrealistic thing is that there aren't constantly complaining parents in the principal office.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @incredulouspasserby Predatory loan shark or shit bushes?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: One of my friends in undergrad ate a cheeseburger in a can from a gas station on a dare and ended up not being able to complete his second major. Don’t eat burgers from vending machines.
emberBecky: you'd think there be like outhouses as an option at least =[
TehAmelie: move that brown
RealGamerCow: "Mom, my new school made me poop in a bush, and my lunch was Funions!"
Rourke9: school bell not as loud as i expected!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou That should be added to advice. "Don't eat burgers from gas stations, especially vending machines"
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: those poor construction workers
Juliamon: everyone's favourite game, Burger or BM
Invitare: and this is in Antarctica too
CptMurphey: this school smells great
bytecaster: At least the bushes are getting fertilized
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: But are they at least learning
Thefluffiestguineapig: @bytecaster Is that fertilized or are they dying from the overload?
TehAmelie: i fear what will happen if we designate a toilet zone indoors and don't build on it
GreatWahooney: can we take a bank loan for toilets?
RealGamerCow: zone an empty corner as a toilet?
CururuGuasu: There will be a line of much epicness
iris_of_ether: This game is magnificent and you should both be proud
Dragonality: Hello bank, I would like money so these children stop crapping in my bushes
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GreatWahooney What is the level of compound interest that is unacceptable for a toilet loan?
bytecaster: If only our students were richer, we could afford toilet and or cleaning
EricTheOrange: every bush is basicly a toilet
gsyhiap: Au naturel
shendaras: There's a spot right by the vending machine.
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: I wonder if the teachers are giving out bush passes
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: We may not be monsters. Maybe this neighborhood is such that these students were already crapping in bushes. Now they’re at least learning as well.
TehAmelie: they're learning chemistry very well, it seems
bytecaster: How are the stats of our teachers, has anyone have a panic attack yet?
bytecaster: *had
Thefluffiestguineapig: @shendaras Wait, I missed the stats thing, was there actually someone shitting next to the vending machines?
bytecaster: Great, the teachers are cogs in the machine
Dragonality: Wow, this game really DOES see teachers like the school district does!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Wait, we can rename the teachers? That feels like too much power for the school administration
TehAmelie: teachers make $400 a DAY? put me inside this game
GreatWahooney: so speaking of missing facilities, apparently there's been some development in using e.coli in bioplastics production
bytecaster: Do you think the students are coming back tomorrow?
TehAmelie: poop bacteria can learn to poop out plastic? amazing
incredulouspasserby: I wonder what the developers intended the research priorities to be
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Heck, I already have panic attacks for free, I'll totally do that for $400
LordZarano: @GreatWahooney I like how twitch thinks e coli is a link
GreatWahooney: @LordZarano it's certainly linked to *something*
bytecaster: No bush pooper category though
TehAmelie: it's ready for when .coli becomes a top domain

Anubis169: 116 months of sub on the wall, 116 months of sub! We're in the schools, breaking the rules, and throwing the teachers into the pools!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Anubis169! (Today's storm count: 40)
Thefluffiestguineapig: Is that a female student?
Rourke9: can we see who that student is. can they be our favorite
draxov: Is there a kid called Tanner? If not can we make one? 😂
Thefluffiestguineapig: The one who was brave enough to go?
DoodlestheGreat: Sooo... add bathrooms?
Anubis169: 'ello chat!
EricTheOrange: that's one way to look at it
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: @draxov sorry kid, the principal decided you needed a new name
TehAmelie: is this still day 1?
Anubis169: Didn't you know all the teachers left the building at 3:30pm?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: You know, depending on the age group, there are probably some kids who would be happy using the foliage as a bathroom full-time. Kids are animals.
TehAmelie: enter the green inferno
SnackPak_: throwup and sawdust
matthaus_c: distressing Rimworld vibes
RealGamerCow: Nah, there's no disinfectant happening there yet
Bratmon: We WISH the school smelled like rotting lunches and disinfectant.
EricTheOrange: I don't think we have the disinfectent yet
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: No, Cameron. You have to research disinfectant first.
gsyhiap: More like infectant
maxthefourth: so just infectant
Firewhiskers: Who needs tutorials
SnowBunSarah: Wait, whoa whoa, we can afford disinfectant?
bytecaster: The school pet was sleeping on a pee bush.
draxov: The disinfectant is just vinegar
Thefluffiestguineapig: @SnackPak_ As someone who did stall stuff in a high capacity barn I can say sawdust can be highly effective but not without a shovel, a few minutes to absorb and a second layer
Bratmon: Ahh, Pee E.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @draxov Why not vodka?
korvys: I'd worry more about the P, than the P.E.
bytecaster: But we can build a single toilet, right?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: What if we planted some bushes in the “Garbage” area and had the kids go there?
draxov: @thefluffiestguineapig vodka works, maybe xxx hooch
matthaus_c: three tiles big, two for the toilet, one for the student :p
Thefluffiestguineapig: @draxov That is a stronger disinfectant if only by percentage alcohol
korvys: Just put it outside, and wall around it once you can afford to
bytecaster: Why not make it a man's romance?
Firewhiskers: Does the, uh, toilet flow into the Antarctic public sewer system?
gsyhiap: @bytecaster A schoolboy's romance?
maxthefourth: it's something!
bytecaster: Better than the bushes!
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: the toilet needs doors
RealGamerCow: Poop races!
LurkerSpine: apparently that used to be a thing
Thefluffiestguineapig: This is literally the start of the bathroom bunker from Powerwash simulator
LurkerSpine: the toilets next to each other
draxov: No toilet seats, no doors, sink taps don't turn off fully and flush takes about 10 times
oddmeg: wow, just joined, suprised by how much this game looks to prison simulator, but then again, as an academic, i am not at all suprised :D
matthaus_c: you know, some aristocrats in history probably thought that hygiene was having a servant sweep their poop off the corners of their rooms once a week
bytecaster: Can we sell enough bushes?
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: sorry kids, we couldnt afford a sink, you have to go outside again
OldUncleDan: So is this Prison Simulator 2? lrrBEEJ
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I had a dorm that had multiple toilets per stall. The bathrooms were single-occupancy but state law required a certain ratio of plumbing to building inhabitants.
bytecaster: Two stalls for about 50 people, that should work out
RealGamerCow: my dorm had one toilet that had WARM water in it. So decadent.
oddmeg: @OldUncleDan i am sure foucault would have something t say on that :D
gsyhiap: As clean as school bushes, apparently
bytecaster: The bathroom not having any windows seems like a mistake
oddmeg: like it looks so much like prison simulator, this must be intentional?
Firewhiskers: Learning/drawing in the margins your your notebook
They_Are_Alyx: @bytecaster WIndows cost money
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @oddmeg probably uses the same engine
OldUncleDan: @oddmeg *sigh* I had to look that name up. Good joke.
GreatWahooney: hey chat, what's the green number on top next to the money?
OldUncleDan: Stock value?
bytecaster: Stonks
Rourke9: income
matthaus_c: now the real play is to add one of /those/ mirrors, so the students in the washroom can see the classroom while doing their business
GreatWahooney: oh ok!
oddmeg: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou yeah i mean it strikes me not just as a matter of engine simularity, it seems to be like a deliberate peice of commentary. lots of academics have commented on the simmilarities between schools and prisons,
GreatWahooney: that does sound very stonks then
Firewhiskers: It sounds like we're a charter school
oddmeg: @OldUncleDan thankyou, i am so sorry :D
draxov: Because the purpose of education is absolutely to make profit 😂
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: what is it supposed to be when the teacher runs into the back of the classroom and waving their hands?
matthaus_c: I bet the rival school hasn't even researched plumbing yet
oddmeg: @draxov always has been (astronaut gun meme)
Gekyouryuu: Clearly, as our rivals, they're proarctica
bytecaster: How?
bytecaster: In a single day
SnowBunSarah: Your rivals are a school of fish
matthaus_c: sharks
LurkerSpine: file cabinets are normally sturdy as hell
LurkerSpine: they last forever
Rourke9: @oddmeg there are also structural similarities within management sims. It might be less an intentional commentary, and more that games where you manage the schedules and activities of a group of people for profit describe both schools and prisons, and thus the structure of the genre highlights the similarities, intentionally or not
saucemaster5000: can we train our students to fight the rival school students. Invest in knives..
oddmeg: i mean the file cabinate in my office has always been broken, sometimes they just become that way :D
RealGamerCow: entropy!
matthaus_c: @saucemaster5000 too expensive, shivs will have to do
draxov: Our students will face the rivals in a dance off on the wrong side of the tracks
saucemaster5000: bring your number 2 shivs
bytecaster: Wait, can students die?
GreatWahooney: I can't imagine why anyone would get sick here
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Hey if you need filing cabinets I’ve got two in my office I’ve been trying to get the facilities team to remove for FOURTEEN MONTHS
oddmeg: @Rourke9 yeah it might be unintentional, or a product of how the management sim genre necessitates seeing people, it facilitates the same sort of "management" used in authoritarian total institutions
shendaras: UTI?
shendaras: Oh noes.
wildpeaks: so this school's haunted is what you're saying
Rourke9: @oddmeg exactly, I was trying to say that I think it is the latter
Firewhiskers: Do they need showers too?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Also what’s this school’s mascot? The Floatin’ Bergs?
Bratmon: This is a very pee-focused game.
korvys: What's with all the workers loitering outside?
matthaus_c: we're gonna get a whole alphabet of TIs
oddmeg: @Rourke9 could be, any commentary may become apparent as we progress.
RealGamerCow: Ross Ice Shelf Memorial Fighting Pissburgs
Cptasparagus: roll bergs
matthaus_c: Die Welle
Bratmon: "Every part of my body that can be described as a 'tract' got infected."
Rourke9: ultimately, its probably a combination of both!
matthaus_c: how is our shitter full already
BusTed: oh no
Rourke9: children no!!
bytecaster: Not enough toilets, lets go to the bushes
RealGamerCow: oh no the wall
Driosenth: The Ross Burgs have a bitter rivalry with the Scott Shelves
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: insert “shitter’s full” meme here
saucemaster5000: that one student is just going outside and will be some time
Gekyouryuu: oh, BERGS. I thought you said Birds and was gonna make a joke about Penguins. "this is what happens when you trigger the Fight or Flight of a flightless bird."
CaptainSpam: Aaaaaand straight out to the bushes!
BusTed: That stall has been christened.
wildpeaks: "instructions unclear"
SnackPak_: Let's Nope is gonna have trouble topping this horror
Cptasparagus: you forgot to buy flush handles
Thefluffiestguineapig: I mean, children are a font of shit and germs
CururuGuasu: These students are sooo backed up
draxov: The horror
matthaus_c: that stall has been DEFILED
saucemaster5000: that stall has seen god
Thefluffiestguineapig: Someone needs antibiotics and probiotics and an exorcism
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Climate strikes at Ross Ice Shelf Memorial Academy? It doesn’t get any better.
RealGamerCow: I'm having flashbacks to when someone *FILLED* a toilet then put a cherry bomb in it.
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: oh, shes a FED
gsyhiap: That's 8 person's-worth less poop though...
emberBecky: ahhh if you're truant go home stop using our limited toilets
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: “We need a school janitor” “No we need an old priest and a young priest”
BusTed: WutFace
SnackPak_: lrrFRUMP
Rourke9: oh
NotCainNorAbel: benginNope
wildpeaks: "a gently slope of poop" is quite the image
Driosenth: Best thing to hang on a bathroom stall, "This is not a place of honor, no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here."
saucemaster5000: we call that the birthday cake
Thefluffiestguineapig: Cam.... your storytelling is vivid
MWGNZ: valid response tbh
draxov: That is the appropriate reaction
bytecaster: I guess our toilets are for poop and the bushes are for pee.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I’m not sure I would have even stopped to quit. I would have punched the “eject” button and rocketed Looney-Tunes-style out through the building’s roof.
SnackPak_: the amount of dread that would make
loufghyslaufey: WEH!? Where's the rule of 3!?
Dragonality: This is the poop hill we quit on
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: The building dread of the first three clean stalls is the kind of narrative tension writers would kill for.
bytecaster: Tomorrow, children, the poop will be gone
Thefluffiestguineapig: That sounds almost correct, just add 5% sink
CururuGuasu: Two toilets for every student!
Driosenth: 60% toilets by mass or volume?
LordZarano: A toilet in every classroom!
TehAmelie: @bytecaster yeah i've sat at that school address
Wicker_Guide: @Driosenth by liquid holding capacity
oddmeg: that sounds like an election promise :D
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I’m pretty sure “this building is 60% toilets” is just the law for preschools. Kids are animals.
oddmeg: a toilet in every classroom, a chicken in every toilet... i mean pot
RealGamerCow: what happens when the kids run out of bushes?
Firewhiskers: Why no paper towels or blow dryers next to the sink?
CururuGuasu: So far we have learned that education management is mainly toilet logistics
Wicker_Guide: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou less a law, more a praxis
bytecaster: @RealGamerCow Bushes are a renewable resource.
xantos69: So, how's this going?
Juliamon: We did have classroom toilets in my elementary school. I don't know why I'm just now remembering it and questioning how common that actually is.
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: maybe you can have bunk toilets, to optimize for space
jessicaengle: Animals use toilets?
TehAmelie: this toilet has begun locking its own door to keep people out
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: How do we teach students to knock at the door instead of entering and discovering the toilet in use.
bytecaster: Only a matter of time before that toilet enrolls with the other freshmen.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou I mean, I feel like that's more of a statement about the building no matter what the composition of the structure
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: @Juliamon did anybody use them?
draxov: It just gurgles "please stop"
TehAmelie: just one?
Rourke9: reminds me of the architects who were designing a Jesuit seminary. The priest running the seminary just wrote 'Are they angels?' on the plans, because they had forgotten to include bathrooms.
oddmeg: @CururuGuasu it kinda is realy, like most of schools is meeting the basic needs of childeren, , food, shelter from the weather and somewhere to poop, learning is after all that
Dragonality: Soon, the toilet itself will quit and walk out
Thefluffiestguineapig: @jessicaengle Rhinos keep a single poop pile
Juliamon: kaliuniqueusernamesaredum We weren't allowed to leave the classroom unattended, so yes
Firewhiskers: Where's the nurse's office?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Dragonality No, it will rise up and detonate to remove all evidence of this attrocity
CaptainSpam: So... more hand sanitizer, then?
Gekyouryuu: "HAVE" to?
Gekyouryuu: Cori, they WANT to
TehAmelie: when Michael in The Good Place tries to design a house he does forget bathrooms, so yeah, it's totally an angel thing
jessicaengle: A child's romance?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I feel like most of your day being taken up by poop logistics is probably accurate to the child management experience
bytecaster: Those toilet passes are very time limited, no time to wait for a stall.
Rourke9: no washing huh
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: this reminds me of american vandal season 2
RealGamerCow: some of them.
Rourke9: *some of them are washing
xantos69: Seems like you really... Really need additional bathroom space.
SnackPak_: I can't tell if this game is more or less draconian than prison architect
RealGamerCow: if the sink is occupado, they walk out
oddmeg: @TehAmelie .... how much of the goodplace have you seen? :D
bytecaster: What a difference a daaaaaay... err toilet makes.
jessicaengle: Nearby toilets also helpful for vomiting. Kids haven't learned to tell when it's coming.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It’s better than it was yesterday, and really isn’t that all any of us can hope for? No. We can also hope for custodial staff.
oddmeg: yeah thats a point, how old are these kids?
kusinohki: meows
NotCainNorAbel: if it isn't coming out of one end it is coming out of the other
matthaus_c: I miss being a kid and having an uneventful time vomiting
bytecaster: I wonder if the parents are starting to notice the smell yet
draxov: I think kids make a much big a deal of vomiting from my experience
oddmeg: i mean i had a real bad eating disorder as a teen, so my vomit experience may be atypical, but it was very high :D
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Based on what I hear from my friends with young children, emission management does indeed take up a lot of your time.
Driosenth: Kids somehow are like tesseracts, they somehow have the ability to hold more contents in their GI tract than their exterior volume
Cptasparagus: "student, what do you have in your mouth?" "hmm?"
oddmeg: i mean childeren do seem to be randomly sticky for no apparent reason an alarming ammount of the time?
draxov: What's our principal called?
matthaus_c: they might converge, but then you're beginning to form some sort of Ur-Kid
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Sticky kid is just curious. And bad at getting the straw into the juice box first try.
bytecaster: Does our school pet have stats?
TehAmelie: i don't know why inventing the glue for post-it notes was so hard, they could have just studied sticky kids
oddmeg: does the game give them a name? or can we name them? i have never gotten to name a principal before, i feel like that would be a milestone in my academic career :D
TheAwkes: Similar habits cause them, but sticky is a problem of externalities, and smelly is a problem of internalities.
bytecaster: The pinnacle of research: The good toilet paper
GreatWahooney: wait, so the game has you start off without toilets by design? rough
Juliamon: oddmeg Both, there are preset principals and you can also make a custom one
Spencer1519 subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 11 months!

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Spencer1519! (Today's storm count: 41)
DiamondMX: Is it intentional that this looks a LOT like Prison Simulator? If so...bleak but not inaccurate.
bytecaster: Maybe a stall or two, as a treat?
TehAmelie: we all want bigger bathrooms
oddmeg: @DiamondMX i just mentioned this! i think its intentional given the amount of literature on the subject
Thefluffiestguineapig: The silence is telling
TehAmelie: a regular whiz palace
Driosenth: I'm sure I could get a Tribology dissertation from "Sticky Kid, Conditional Adherence Testing"
oddmeg: schools and prisons are VERRY linked in a bunch of ways and i would be suprised if the game wasnt commenting on that
emberBecky: I think the resemblance to Prison Architect has to be intentional - it is truly almost identical in certain graphics.
jessicaengle: @TehAmelie :D holy moly jlrrFacepalm
oddmeg: then again, i have never played rimworld, but when i see my friends playing it i often mistake it for prison architect, so maybe the devs were just inspired by rimworld?
matthaus_c: who needs hand sanny in 2023
xantos69: @oddmeg Bad food, high fences, you can't leave early, you have no authority over your own schedule...
GreatWahooney: maybe if we're feeling fancy we can have sanitizers in the hallway
oddmeg: but i think a reading comparing this to prison architect is way more interesting
DiamondMX: Indoor toilets are oppression, how can the students truly experience peak pooping - a man's romance?
bytecaster: Great for when the students come back from the bushes
iris_of_ether: Here they coooooome
matthaus_c: kids love hygiene, that's why they keep eating tide pods
Dragonality: Welcome back to school, now with twice as much toilet
jessicaengle: I've been a janitor in a hotel before, given the choice I'd much rather clean up after small children than adults tbh
shendaras: Doubled the capacity, even.
korvys: Oh, can we afford a janitor yet?
bytecaster: @korvys We are still working on the research
oddmeg: @xantos69 so much more than that, for example a lot of commentary on both being what sociologists call "total institutions" which controll so much of your life, which cause people to adapt to this controll in certain predictable ways
Driosenth: Is it cheaper to vitrify old bathrooms and build new ones rather than hire janitorial staff?
matthaus_c: hadn't occurred to us to clean the school before
korvys: meditating upon *not* being filthy
DarthRagnar815: Is it next to godliness on the tech tree?
oddmeg: also there is the well doccumented school to prison pipeline, simmilarities in archetecture because they both have simmilar design needs due to simmilar needs to controll their population...
Thefluffiestguineapig: @oddmeg In a depressing thing this is also a thing exploited by abusive people (partners, parents, siblings, bosses etc)
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Maybe by “research” they mean “come to the sudden realization that you need.” Maybe we’re just an idiot who started the Fire Festival of schools.
TehAmelie: based on the one school i've seen in detail, i believe you need no more than 1 toilet per 16 students
sarsum33: no
oddmeg: @Thefluffiestguineapig yep, a lot of our society is abusive / coercive, its disapointing but an opportinity for change
oddmeg: i checked it is not
emberBecky: no not the same people
matthaus_c: Foucault would have a field day if it was the same people
Bratmon: Apparently, same artist but different studio.
emberBecky: ohhh is it the same artist? that would make sense.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I mean am I the only person who enjoyed school and did not think of it as a prison or abusive authority? Some days I feel like I’m the only one.
Roger_Job329: So what happens when a flu breaks out.
oddmeg: this is made by a different dev, based in the phillipnes, previous games the made include political animals, so i would be suprised if there was no political awareness in this game
Kaorti: Foucalt lives on in our society every day
Thefluffiestguineapig: @oddmeg Yeah, I have a really hard time seeing that in anything other than theory because of current circumstances but I acknowledge the possibility
bytecaster: Maybe they were looking for Cat #3
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I realize the larger social similarities, and also probably that I was lucky enough to go to very good schools, but still I feel like no one really sticks up for school.
matthaus_c: rigid truant was my nickname in high school
jessicaengle: We have a cat???
Thefluffiestguineapig: So I don't remember what ideas Foucalt was specifically responsible for, for some reason I keep thinking of Satre instead
wildpeaks: cat: a worker with a tail
jessicaengle: This is the best school ever.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: BartholoMEOW
bytecaster: Foucault?
matthaus_c: sidewalks upon which to slam
jessicaengle: Sidewalk's for regular walkin', not fancy walkin'
shendaras: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou I think it's a difference between a particular school (maybe great) and the idea of schools as an institution
TehAmelie: i liked school, but then i went to a tiny old fashioned school with 200 students split up on a dozen wooden houses painted in pleasant earthy colors and wide nature areas between them
oddmeg: i mean im an academic, i teach professionally, i definitly think there are positive roles for schools, its just the way they were set up, and indeed when they were popularized (or atleast their current prevelent mode was) is very simmilar to prisons, due to the prevailing social attitudes at the time
Firewhiskers: Not even vaping. How old school
oddmeg: as i teach in a university, it realy sucks for me how much of my work is undoing harmfull stuff schools do, particularly to students with learning differences
bytecaster: I don't think it's fair that we can favorite students.
GreatWahooney: are we sure one is enough
Roger_Job329: Little "Brownsville Station" happen round here ehhh
jessicaengle: FBtouchdown
bytecaster: Maybe the trash cans need to come back?
tyrsredritehand: I went to two different high schools in TX that were supposedly designed by a prison architect.
oddmeg: i like how we have a gender neutral bathroom, i hope the game dosnt simulate current political cliamates, lest we get parents yelling at us in schoolboard reasons cause they saw some nonsence on a recently renamed social media site / hive of scum and villany
Dragonality: I kinda hoped the janitor would just start screaming and leave
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: There are probably certain things common to any institution that has to manage the flow of thousands of humans with no motivation to listen to you.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @oddmeg I absolutely agree, I love teaching and helping people to see all kinds of things in a different way but I live and was educated in the US so I never even considered going into the profession because it's just standardized testing proctors with brief pauses
Thefluffiestguineapig: Right, designed to churn out boys fit to fill the roles that were empty
oddmeg: its true from certain perspectives, its a reasonable reading of history, but it focuses on certain things etc, like any narrative account
bytecaster: Mop those bushes
BusTed: Oh man, that is not in his job description.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Schools were not designed during the Industrial Revolution? We had the concept of schools way way before then. They follow shift work and agricultural schedules because that’s the schedules parents live by, not to brainwash students somehow.
oddmeg: its a bit more complicated, there were classical and millitary influences
CaptainSpam: Maaaaaaaaybe we need two janitors. Maybe.
TehAmelie: wow it's like a yellow swamp in the eastern woods
Thefluffiestguineapig: I would say that school ending up purely as a result of the past is a simplification
oddmeg: schools worked differently, but our current mode of implementation was popularized during the industrial revolution
BusTed: He is cleaning the larger toilet room.
bytecaster: Breaking news: "Kid got into accident while crossing the street in search for poop bush"
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou I think they meant the public school system and younger children's education especially
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: School runs for the amount of time it does because that’s when parents are expected to be at work.
gualdhar: piss pushes: a part of our heritage
GreatWahooney: are they... mopping the grass?
oddmeg: i mean even that is not totally true, for example i went to a montesuri school, which is based on a totally different model
GreatWahooney: oh I know exactly why
TehAmelie: we probably have to remove all the topsoil to get this place clean
oddmeg: also there are religious influences, modern prisons started as religiously inspired penetentiarys, and many schools were a part of churches
bytecaster: We might need someone to take care of all the UTIs
xantos69: @TehAmelie We can always try nuke and pave.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Because I study Early Modern Europe I know what school and study were before the Industrial Revolution and they were not for the masses or even for general education
GreatWahooney: maybe if the toilets didn't look like an active warzone
bytecaster: Eh, the teacher doesn't seem to mind
Thefluffiestguineapig: @oddmeg Yeah, the Reformations have a lot to answer for
Dragonality: Nurgle would be proud
iris_of_ether: They're like cats: once they go in a place, that's the toilet now
Thefluffiestguineapig: Is this where the Eldrazi titans began?
oddmeg: also, i teach a whole module called critical perspectives on imprisonment so it is taking so much efffort to not just infodump a thesis into chat :D
CaptainSpam: These animals did this in UNDER THREE DAYS.
xantos69: Please, do not crap in other people's shoes.
Firewhiskers: @Thefluffiestguineapig The University of Heidelberg in Germany used to have its own separate student prison!
oddmeg: @CaptainSpam interestingly enough thinking of childeren as animals is also another influence on modern schooling systems
bytecaster: You know the old proverb: "If there is still pee on the bushes, the toilets are insufficient"
Thefluffiestguineapig: @oddmeg That sounds fascinating, it's not something I delved into deeply because I had enough horrors going on in modern day to deal with that
Dragonality: Oh, it definitely got on the handles, yes
Thefluffiestguineapig: Take a break to destroy your own bathrooms!
Thefluffiestguineapig: Cam said that just as I hit enter!
oddmeg: @Firewhiskers an increasing ammount of schools have little jails or brigs, or special behavioural refereal units
EvilBadman: no, that's someone else's bathroom!
bytecaster: @oddmeg If solitary doesn't work for prisons, why wouldn't it work for schools
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I think it’s a little backwards to say school schedules were designed to make kids good factory workers somehow when it’s more reasonable to assume they were designed around when parents were expected to be at work.
jessicaengle: jlrrNo jlrrNo jlrrNo jlrrNo
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Firewhiskers Yeah, there was a whole thing and I seem to remember something about not allowing corrupting influences to spread but I may be conflating that from somewhere else
EvilBadman: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Both can be true
oddmeg: @bytecaster it depends what you mean by work, solitary works to do a lot of things, like it works realy well if your objective is to mess up someones mental state for life
Thefluffiestguineapig: @oddmeg Its a horror show that some formerly dystopian creators have said "I genuinely don't know what to do with this"
jessicaengle: Turns out human society is complex and resistant to overly simplistic explanations and solutions.
GreatWahooney: time to watch that new crapshot
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Didn’t it used to be that schools were mostly for gentlemen and it was utterly unreasonable to imagine a gentleman would go to the same jail as the unwashed masses, so of course a school would have its own special jail
oddmeg: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou its a lot of things, like i said, any one single answer may be both a usefull way of thinking about it but also very much incomplete, history is complicated, cause humans are

oddmeg: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou sortof, in the UK for example we had two essentually paralell schooling systems, one for childeren of the great and the good, and then comprehensives for everyone else
Firewhiskers: @Thefluffiestguineapig When I was visiting there, they said that students would just have a big party, get arrested, and then continue the party in the school prison.

Firewhiskers: @Thefluffiestguineapig Pretty much :(
bytecaster: The duality of chat, on the one hand, pee bush jokes, on the other hand, the sociopolitical history of the school system
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @oddmeg I know I know. It just bugs me when people grab for conspiracy/malicious explanations first rather than “society is complicated and most large-scale systems are the way they are for dozens of intersecting reasons.”
Thefluffiestguineapig: @oddmeg Yeah, sorry, that was too simplistic a way to phrase that, from the little I've learned (much less than oddmeg) a lot of it was different ways to enforce social order as they saw it
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: In my experience the number one way to make a social system not achieve something is to design it to do that.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Turns out human brains suck at designing social systems
TehAmelie: me, i just remember the smell of the big city school i went to my first three years. an overwhelming, constant smell, thick in the air. sort of like dreams being slowly strangled
oddmeg: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou unfortunatly chat dosnt realy lend itself to super complex discussions. and the economic history of schools, and the critical theory perspective etc can be usefull explanations to think about but also woefully incomplete. they all have something to contribute, and prblems they point out, but hunfortunatly at the moment our best way of talking about histroy is a bunch of partial explanations rather than one big one
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Yeah, I don't know you much from chat but I am someone who naturally sees complex systems as understandable and often I have to jump down people's interpretations of what I have said to shake them and say "no you idiots!" So it's understandable
LordZarano: Nuance PrideRise
GreatWahooney: new crappo is fantastic. 5/5 no notes
jessicaengle: I went to a pretty good school district, and had a pretty good experience in school. I had caring teachers and was given a place to try new things and feel good about myself for the most part. It was a public school. I did not have a stable home life. It meant a lot to me to have school. FWIW
TehAmelie: had reason to visit another of these city-run schools in another part of town 27 years later. it smelled exactly the same
oddmeg: i meyeah its why when i teach students i talk about these ideas as theoretical lenses. looking through the lenses is usefull, but every lense will distort things a bit, or make you miss something. anyone who claims to have one grand theory or explanation for something is normally trying to manipulate you or just so profoundly ignorant they cant see their own ignorance
Firewhiskers: Not to get into what schools don't teach but I never learned local Indigenous history until I was out of school :(
Thefluffiestguineapig: To jump off of oddmeg's point: history is truly a bunch of fragments that should be viewed as a rotating 3d whole rather than flattening the narrative to serve a purpose. That has been a horribly systematized thing in recent American history. I know it was present before, but not to the level it is now
oddmeg: anyway, good night chat, thanks for the.... chat :D, nice talking with you GCU and fluffiest guinneapig
Thefluffiestguineapig: @jessicaengle This is an important point to highlight, just because a system has historical roots that are problematic doesn't mean that good people can't force through and help someone with those tools
TehAmelie: yaay!
bytecaster: So, how are everybodies toilets doing?
oddmeg: ah janus like nature of this stream, pis and historical analysis :D
Thefluffiestguineapig: @oddmeg Sleep well, dead pan slow clap for the chat joke, also great talk!
saucemaster5000: plant licking 101 is a popular class
Bratmon: That reminds me! I have to clean my bathroom today.
TehAmelie: it never rains in Antarctica
Clench_Eastwood: we just stopped serving neer in the caf for lunch
bytecaster: We have developed the Jan-Iiit-Or 2000
Clench_Eastwood: beer*
Thefluffiestguineapig: @bytecaster I mean, I haven't done much to it but it clearly needs work and has done since before I moved in
Nigouki: wouldn't pee actually kill the plants if there was enough of it?

Thefluffiestguineapig: @Clench_Eastwood But it was the only thing that wasn't contaminated
Firewhiskers: It would help if the game did something funny or clever or insightful.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: ughhhh well I just realized the thing I didn’t understand is a result of maybe a totally new error I didn’t previously discover sooooo I’m going home. This will be tomorrow GCU’s problem. Afternoon folks, thanks for stream guys.
saucemaster5000: depends what the lunchlady serves
Thefluffiestguineapig: They were drinking beer for the same reason that sailors did
TehAmelie: plants don't crave electrolytes
GreatWahooney: a crapload, even
Clench_Eastwood: never breaking eye contact
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Hey, don't be hard on yourself about a misunderstanding, we appreciate being challenged and exploring ideas deeply

Thefluffiestguineapig: @GreatWahooney If I could weaponize a dead pan stare your screen would explode
bytecaster: There are still so many soiled bushes left
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @thefluffiestguineapig oh no it has nothing to do with chat I just discovered this software simulation isn’t accurately reporting results
Firewhiskers: Are we seeing the resurgence of the Fallout Tunnel Snakes?
TehAmelie: 47 separate dookers
Thefluffiestguineapig: Is the urine and shit killing the bushes yet so the road sees their horrible shame?
saucemaster5000: that's 46 that wasn't me!
xantos69: Why so they can poop in there too?
Clench_Eastwood: but hey, only one cigarette, so........healthy!
GreatWahooney: @Thefluffiestguineapig I regret to inform you that I am in fact the deadest pan in the west
korvys: Vincent Price is your janitor!?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Ah, that also sucks and I hope it can be fixed
matthaus_c: as is their right
bytecaster: Or one student a lot of times!
saucemaster5000: shitting outside is an elective
saucemaster5000: 2 credits
Thefluffiestguineapig: @bytecaster One student whose parents didn't get more lactaid on mac and cheese day
matthaus_c: extra credits if you can spell an essay with your poop
Clench_Eastwood: Is this the Man's Romance? Where's Beej
TehAmelie: a man's romance has never been so. . .earthy
emberBecky: like my cat
korvys: So, an interesting feature of games like this is the ability to fast forward time
BusTed: WutFace
matthaus_c: to the windoooow, to the wall
xantos69: Did she miss?
BusTed: oh no
RealGamerCow: just shotgunned it
Cptasparagus: you've never shit up the wall before?
saucemaster5000: they didn't miss
Thefluffiestguineapig: Are the kids spraying like tom cats to express stress?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @saucemaster5000 That's what I'm afraid of
gualdhar: wait, you DON'T make separate trips?
TehAmelie: maybe we can squeeze another toilet or two in the middle of the bathroom floor
Bratmon: Can you assign a janitor to just the bathroom?
maxthefourth: at least her pee was comfortable
bytecaster: Maybe each student should have a personal janitor?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Fountain urinal?
gualdhar: you've never gone to do a #1, and realized after waashing your hands you're overdue for #2?
Akaias: reminds me of the one time i tried to go on a toilet at a festival and as i opened the stall "it" was dripping from the ceiling. not gonna lie, i was a bit impressed how ppl manage that.
ogier300: That toilet is in constant use.
Qalten subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 53 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Qalten! (Today's storm count: 45)
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: They shit on the floor, and then washed their hands. I don’t…I don’t know how to process that.
Qalten: Why is this so compelling
bytecaster: I wonder how long that one vending machine is gonna feed our 42 students
GreatWahooney: I think urine a lot of trouble
Fe1ix66: what is the worse option, shitting on the floor or upper decking the school?
emberBecky: I'd prefer to think the brown stuff is dirt. visual shorthand for 'dirty stall'. I wish to believe this.
Thefluffiestguineapig: For some reason this chat has me laughing so hard I'm crying
ogier300: There's no one in the class.
bytecaster: Maybe throw in another, just for fun?
matthaus_c: @gualdhar is that better of worse than going in for a shower and realising you need a #2 after you turn the water off
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Fe1ix66 Worse for who?
Bratmon: My prison architect prisoners are so much more hygienic than this.
Fe1ix66: @Thefluffiestguineapig the janitor?
GreatWahooney: @Thefluffiestguineapig I too find myself laughing more than on most streams
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: If the janitor shits on the floor we’re nuking and paving
GreatWahooney: heh heh, streams
TehAmelie: adults get in much more trouble for pooping on the floor
Thefluffiestguineapig: This janitor is going to be able to buy an island with this overtime
bytecaster: How can they still eat after this?
jessicaengle: jlrrDang jlrrDang
AveryCorvus: Where's the option to make students clean their own classroom, Japanese-style, thus learning to stop pooing themselves so much?
RealGamerCow: Scruffy is unmitigatedly disconcerted at the utter vileness of the youth
graal_smith: Why am I getting Pico vibes?
KV1NN4: I know several custodians and working at schools is... kindda the worst
iris_of_ether: lrrGARBO lrrGARBO lrrGARBO
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Fe1ix66 Then the floor. If it was the plumber/students/teachers/parents it would be the upper deck
matthaus_c: some day these plants will evolve to subsist on ammonia
saucemaster5000: maybe he has a little "spoonful of sugar song" to make his duty more fun
KV1NN4: Had one friend have to clean a (thankfully unused) tampon that was imitating ceailing-egg (but less charming)
Bratmon: lrrGARBO
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It is a big improvement. That’s the worst part.
korvys: You could fast forward time?
GreatWahooney: Poop jokes are not my favourite kind of humour, but they are a solid number two
KV1NN4: aaargh XD
Thefluffiestguineapig: @RealGamerCow What is Scruffy? I missed creation of the school
jessicaengle: oye
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @greatwahooney BOOOOOO
bytecaster: We need to research cat bed, that's the most important
saucemaster5000: @GreatWahooney god damn you
emberBecky: @GreatWahooney eyyyy
LordZarano: @GreatWahooney escher3PUN
maxthefourth: sergePun sergeCrimes
graal_smith: @Thefluffiestguineapig Scruffy's the Janitor.
Bratmon: I like how Classroom 3 looks like that, and it's clearly not our highest priority.
bytecaster: They are getting immunized FOR FREE!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GreatWahooney Hopefully not too solid. That get's unpleasant fast
GreatWahooney: you're welcome everyone
EldarLuin: Play structures?
RealGamerCow: Scruffy is the janitor from Futurama
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Janitor routing. For when a janitor switch just won’t do the job.
bytecaster: What about better food?
TehAmelie: school bathroom horror stories, is it? i worked as a janitor for a little while. . .
Thefluffiestguineapig: @graal_smith Yeah, i feel like the horror of his daily existence has given him PTSD like from WWI style trench warfare
bytecaster: We can already hire a cook, right?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I wonder if this game is smart enough to have food quality affect bathroom troubs.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GreatWahooney Are you saying we are plants because you expect your shit to nourish us?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Okay no for real I’m going home. GCU out.
Bratmon: If this is like Prison Architect, you need a Kitchen and a Cafeteria.
bytecaster: More space for our students to litter!
matthaus_c: some sort of construction worker pool ladder scenario
Bratmon: If you only have one, the game will break in an annoying way.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @bytecaster I think you mean more space to shitter Kappa
saucemaster5000: they're construction workers, make them built their own way out
bytecaster: That new room removes so many bushes, where will the students go to pee?
TehAmelie: cleaning up a school a few days before the end of summer break, i found a stall that had been locked from the outside, with a gift left inside from 10 weeks earlier. maybe i should leave it at that
EldarLuin: eldarl1Shocked
BusTed: A new strata.
xantos69: You found the ancient dookie horde!
matthaus_c: these are probably fossilized
AveryCorvus: Well, see, installing floors is one union, and cleaning shit is another
gsyhiap: lrrFRUMP
Juliamon: We're only on day *FOUR*
Juliamon: that's still pretty fresh
matthaus_c: clearing the bushes is like a game of minesweeper
Akaias: isn't nature beautiful? fairK
bytecaster: See that new room? That's the poop room!
EldarLuin: wow. smoking in the washroom.. it IS like real life
Thefluffiestguineapig: @xantos69 Call the local archaeologists because there is a group of them who seek out outhouses to excavate
bytecaster: The poop is mostly in the cafeteria now
gsyhiap: Cleanliness is merely a temporary state of being
saucemaster5000: what this school needs is "The Pokey"
EldarLuin: Another washroom?
Thefluffiestguineapig: I would say even a little beyond capacity
noSmokeFire: JIT toilet solutions
matthaus_c: wouldn't need that many toilets if we had a single student centipede
bytecaster: Maybe we should have researched the better mop
Thefluffiestguineapig: Does this qualify that bathroom to gain the title of Thunder Box?
betweenmyself: Hopefully this will steer clear of Cult of the Lamb territory and we won’t having the students ask the principal if they can eat poop. pennyWhat
Bratmon: Toilets do grow on trees. That's the problem!
bytecaster: I mean, at least the kitchen is clean!
maxthefourth: @matthaus_c will long student require long toilet?
bytecaster: Skipping class in the poop room!
LordZarano: Janitors are the MVP
matthaus_c: @maxthefourth only if they take a real long shit
Nigouki: skipping class to go to the shit arena
korvys: Skipping class to hang out in the poop room
EricTheOrange: skipping class in the poop room
Thefluffiestguineapig: @korvys Where else would she go? The piss bushes?
matthaus_c: unload this guano pit on someone else
bytecaster: Our school comes with bonus fertilizer, that ought to rise the price!
maxthefourth: sometimes I come here to think
bytecaster: Next time we know how to build toilets from the start
Thefluffiestguineapig: I don't like the idea of synergizing here
bytecaster: But very wise!
AtomicAlchemical: Have you seen the economy? Kid's got no future and knows it
Thefluffiestguineapig: I mean, they are stress relieving from the studies I've seen (I don't smoke)
Bratmon: !addquote [now] Cameron "This kid is, like, smoking two lighters a day."
SnowBunSarah: It's not the admin's fault that the students can't learn
Nigouki: The janitor will now DNA test all the poop and deliver it to the desks of the offenders
Thefluffiestguineapig: @AtomicAlchemical This is depressingly real
GreatWahooney: have we considered stocking the vending machine with cigs?
EldarLuin: THen it's a good thing that he does, cause with those grades... don't think he'll last long
C_DOS_KEZ: stressful enough to be smokin through a factory an hour? this must be a british school
bytecaster: So what do our poop stats say?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Nigouki As is his right and appropriate vengence
bytecaster: You can have toilets, food or karate, students, you gotta choose here
Thefluffiestguineapig: Is that kid green from sickness or sleep?
matthaus_c: student centipede!
xantos69: Oh no way we cleaned up all the poop yet.
bytecaster: @xantos69 There's still lots in the bushes
Thefluffiestguineapig: Hopefully not coccidia, that is so difficult to get rid of
EldarLuin: No! Not the dreaded an/or!
TehAmelie: she's creating hybrid cold viruses
matthaus_c: with incredible precision is how
xantos69: Cam, I want to say the answer is "bad aim".
Trahas: Kids are disgusting
adambomb625: Are you gonna do anything with all that extra space that is now poop free?
matthaus_c: @xantos69 she hit what she was aiming for
bytecaster: Role model
Thefluffiestguineapig: This school is actually a place to incubate new viruses and bacteria for CDC hazard labs to use
iris_of_ether: Bathroom Manager Simulator
bytecaster: A taste for bush?
matthaus_c: toilets are for pissing, bushes are for shitting
MWGNZ: janitor needs their pay tripled
Wolfstrike_NL: I hope our janitor doesn't get sick
xantos69: So.... like at least 5 more toilets?
GreatWahooney: so the janitors are not concerned by toilet ocupancy? damn
Bratmon: God, I wish I could pee on a bush if the bathrooms were full between classes in High School.
korvys: Oh, I see the poop arena is no longer full of poop - have we got it all yet?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @MWGNZ I think this janitor needs a sound proofed room and whatever he wants to smash at whatever price
Bratmon: @korvys It's a marathon, not a sprint.
TehAmelie: it's probably like nuclear plant workers, the janitor has enough safety procedures to make them less sick than the average
Wolfstrike_NL: That specific toilet has been cleaned 6 times already, today
matthaus_c: time to get schwifty in here
Thefluffiestguineapig: Same odds as Cori winning at PvP games
Dragonality: We're going to have to permanently assign a janitor to only clean the bathroom, aren't we
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Dragonality And designate a therapist who will be able to buy a boat
EldarLuin: He wanted to feel cool
Bratmon: Maybe we should be potty training our students.
MWGNZ: janitor has earned the right to poop on the floor
TehAmelie: a bathroom attendant just standing guard with a dripping wet mop
TehAmelie: giving stink eye to every student
xantos69: I mean... if you had to spend all of your day cleaning crap off the floor, wouldn't you get curious?
C_DOS_KEZ: St. Shwifty's Academy for Wayward Poops
Thefluffiestguineapig: @MWGNZ Not just, but directly on the principal's car
matthaus_c: @TehAmelie at least just the stink
BusTed: Nice pristine floor.
bytecaster: Yeah, lets look at the bushes, surely those are nice
TheMandrew: the herringbone!
BusTed: Such tessellation.
possummtg: Love me some bricks
matthaus_c: a serene pattern
LordZarano: Can we afford more janitor?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TheMandrew Don't let James in here
Bratmon: I notice no one is clipping any of this. That seems like a missed opportunity.
gsyhiap: Aah, the absence of poop. What a treat.
TehAmelie: of course their health is poor, they're pooping five times a day
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Bratmon I'm honestly laughing too hard
Bratmon: We need watchers of other streams to know what happened here.
bytecaster: What are the trash stats?
TheMerricat: So what I am getting from this stream is this game is a very realistic and accurate simulation of school life.
empyreon: they know the secret pooping technique of the "triple decker"
TehAmelie: be like Jake Peralta, never poop
Thefluffiestguineapig: They are all perpetually and increasingly dehydrated. The way you die of dystentary
Juliamon: Be the change you want to see in the world. Make the clips you want to see in the highlights.
KeytarCat: @Thefluffiestguineapig sounds like school!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Now I want to rewatch Brooklyn 99 again and don't have that streaming service
BusTed: That one was a two janitor job.
korvys: "What a nice school - minimal trash on the floor, and only a handful of students pooping in the bushes"
TehAmelie: maybe there's a mod to reduce bathroom visits by like, 90%
C_DOS_KEZ: "i'm making jobs for you" 'thank you?' "this isn't the job yet"
gsyhiap: @Juliamon Honestly I'm not sure that I want the highlights to be full of pooping...
Thefluffiestguineapig: Cam I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has an immagination that sometimes gets away from me and horrifies even me
bytecaster: Maybe we just need to rush the good toilet paper tech
xantos69: Is there a way to tie a janitor to just stay in the bathroom 24/7?
matthaus_c: grace, poise and feculence
Thefluffiestguineapig: @bytecaster How will that help the volume issue?
bytecaster: @xantos69 Yeah, but we don't have the technology yet
DoodlestheGreat: @gsyhiap Is it REALLY that different than the past?
Thefluffiestguineapig: And detention is cleaning the engine
bytecaster: I want to remind everybody, now windows!
betweenmyself: “When popping a squat, be sure to fully extend your pinkies to show how refined you are.”
RealGamerCow: "Make sure to keep constant eye contact with anyone that is occupying the stall next to you. Foreceful, uninterrupted eye contact."
korvys: Oh yeah, research Janitor routing, and just have one spend the day in the toiler
C_DOS_KEZ: just need to get a flush so righteous it'll suck the mildew from a deer's eyelash
Bratmon: I like how at the beginning of this we were worried about, like, the financial viability of the school, and maybe even if our students were learning.
Thefluffiestguineapig: I am visualizing Graham doing a crapshot of the miming a flight attendant does while Kathleen speaks like in a plane PA system
Bratmon: We're a bit beyond that now.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Kitty!!!!
KeytarCat: I once threw up at school and ran into the janitor on my way out of the bathroom. At least it didn't surprise him...
MWGNZ: smart cat, staying outside where there's no poop
bytecaster: @MWGNZ Have you forgotten the bushes?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @MWGNZ I'm sorry to tell you.....
iris_of_ether: escher3MEOW escher3MEOW escher3MEOW
Nigouki: When I said "shotgun blast the bowl" I meant you need to go Kurt Cobain on that bong, NOT do whatever you did in the bathroom!
Thefluffiestguineapig: You can pet the CAT?????
Thefluffiestguineapig: GotY
MWGNZ: ok, outside with less poop
Juliamon: The construction workers can pet the cat, anyway
TehAmelie: so, Bill. how much time on a given day would you say you spend on these TPS reports? (here TPS stands for toilet performance stability)
Thefluffiestguineapig: Suddenly a new and horrifyingly familiar level pack appears in PowerWash Simulator
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: just one more toilet will fix bathrooms
bytecaster: We have not thought about improving learning outcomes for our students for days at this point.
RealGamerCow: I think we've learned that the principal's office is too big
C_DOS_KEZ: replace the toilet paper with tin foil. that'll desuade cacking in front of the janitor xD
Alephred: Is each of these grid squares five feet on a side?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie And did that specialist in Schroedinger call you back to give his opinion on closed vs open doors and progress?
TehAmelie: ooh, when we get that full time bathroom janitor they should have a power washer. it'll speed up the toilet visits
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Dual purpose as a bidet?
GreatWahooney: how do we export this school as a powerwash sim level
TehAmelie: and showers
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GreatWahooney I mean if any group can surprise the LRR crew with this it would be this and discord
Thefluffiestguineapig: I also have no idea how to do any of that exporting
C_DOS_KEZ: i feel the need to get this game now just to make the worst possible thing
Bratmon: For a one-off, it would probably be easier to figure out how to make modded powerwash-sim levels, and just make this that way.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Also once word of this gets out a baptismal font to cleanse the horror
RealGamerCow: Child Effluvia
EldarLuin: Yogurt on the wall from the foodfight
bytecaster: Is drop a slushy a euphemism?
C_DOS_KEZ: @RealGamerCow name of my new powerviolence band
TehAmelie: basically, we just want a constant high pressure water stream through the bathroom
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Is a power washer or riptide more accurate here?
tyrsredritehand: Replace toilet with cloaca maxima?
TehAmelie: yes
EldarLuin: Might need more tables?
bytecaster: Do we wanna keep some money for events?
korvys: Adding food feels like an own goal in the fight against poop

Thefluffiestguineapig: This is like the Shining in the Stephen King universe where it is activated by trauma. That cafeteria worker has had their Shining activated
C_DOS_KEZ: the smart play would be to put the kitchen the other side of the toilet and the cafeteria the other side of that. and by smart... i mean deeply funny
Bratmon: Students are like "Eating lunch indoors? But then how am I going to poop right where I'm eating?"
Thefluffiestguineapig: We can repair them
bytecaster: 5000$!
Thefluffiestguineapig: Better
Thefluffiestguineapig: Faster
Thefluffiestguineapig: Cleaner*
Bratmon: We didn't find the ghost.
bytecaster: I assume the ghost hunters aren't here yet
TehAmelie: well at least the Ghostbusters will be able to pay rent this month
EldarLuin: Five stalls broken.. when you only had four... neat trick!
Bratmon: lrrFINE
GreatWahooney: it was a 20% chance and nothing happened
Thefluffiestguineapig: @EldarLuin Wait, that's a good point
amasshallucination: i love how the construction workers aren't an outside firm or anything so they just loiter around
Bratmon: lrrGARBO lrrGARBO lrrSPOOP lrrGARBO lrrGARBO
tyrsredritehand: 20% of the time it works all the time.
Wolfstrike_NL: Are we allowed to have windows in walls?
TehAmelie: ooh, maybe we can sell three toilets before they break
bytecaster: Is the school actually "clean"?
TheAwkes: Wait... does there need to be a separate person serving that food?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Like what people do with nintendo switch stuff? Sell it on FBMarketplace and say it's not my problem?
TehAmelie: you know, cleanness is a spectrum
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TheAwkes Like I said, more evidence for the person having their shine activated
Bratmon: Remember when we worried about the students, like, flirting with each other?
Bratmon: I miss the days when that was our biggest problem.
TheMerricat: Wait... I just looked at the top of the screen are we actually only in day five?
TehAmelie: are they too sick to flirt now?
bytecaster: @TehAmelie It's the smell
Bratmon: God, this has all happened in one school week.
BusTed: Just leave your dirty plates there.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Or maybe not physically sick, just numb
RealGamerCow: Some food courts do two holes, one bucket
Bratmon: Only the cool kids get to sit at the lunch table. Everyone else just has to stand.
RealGamerCow: No recess?
bytecaster: What are our toilets if not "special"?
RealGamerCow: wait, this is high school
RealGamerCow: You need to buy a convenience store to put at the corner that sells red bull and cigarettes
GreatWahooney: the commonest of rooms

matthaus_c: does this vending machine have marlboros
Thefluffiestguineapig: @RealGamerCow During the day, at night it absolutely is where the janitors drink to be able to go on
Thefluffiestguineapig: @matthaus_c No name brand, too expensive
RealGamerCow: Anyway here's shitterwall
bytecaster: Oh no, I bet this will only increase the crushes!
Gekyouryuu: "we created an awful place." so a regular high school?
bytecaster: I'm sure Bartholomew is happy!
Thefluffiestguineapig: Is the cat happier? If so worth the cringey crushes
Bratmon: We at whatever school this is are pleased to announce our new common room: one table with four chairs that's completely in the way!
matthaus_c: we /have/ indisputably improved conditions
bytecaster: The cat is camping out in front of the food, very appropriate!
RealGamerCow: there is significantly less piss in bushes
Thefluffiestguineapig: @matthaus_c Kitty is happier so yes
bytecaster: And not a few of the bushes, all of the bushes!
xVoxtric: the tedium of life isn't worth considering
matthaus_c: we thought the Man's Romance would be more popular with the kids
TehAmelie: "we have to sanitize like 500 liters of piss from these woods. like, can you make the ground not go squish?"
bytecaster: We can still expand!
OldUncleDan: Having to mop the bushes... What is the soil made of?
OldUncleDan: Doesn't the piss just get soaked up by the soil?
bytecaster: That one table is very popular
RealGamerCow: Those two tables are CHOICE spots
Thefluffiestguineapig: @OldUncleDan Good question, next question
GreatWahooney: @OldUncleDan see, you'd think so, and yet
Juliamon: Soil can only hold so much moisture
Icy_Jane: gotta optimize the fluid in fluid out rates
bytecaster: Everybody knows kids love table
betweenmyself: “If only there was some way we could harness the urine output of our students… But in a way that isn’t incredibly problematic or illegal.”
OldUncleDan: He's a grooomer!
TehAmelie: what is he even doing in school
Gekyouryuu: flat earthers are only OK if they're Tolkien elves
Bratmon: Okay, we MAY need to focus on education again.
Thefluffiestguineapig: I didn't have that, I had one kid who would pick whatever would piss off another kid in class the most and pick it as his position in that class for the day
saucemaster5000: look the kids told me the toilet water was clean!
Bratmon: (I totally had that kid in my school)
Thefluffiestguineapig: Because of course he was high up in debate club
bytecaster: Everybody knows, there is a lot less poop in the bushes on the second try.
OldUncleDan: No school library? What is this? Houston, TX?
TehAmelie: my fear is that if you've played Prison Architect it shapes the way you play this along the same lines
TehAmelie: a prison to school pipeline, if you will
Basic_Human_Decency: is this not a prison?
Bratmon: I never quite understood the point of a school library. We have to be in class all day; when would we ever go to the library?
bytecaster: Yet
SnowBuddy18: only if you pick the US
Thefluffiestguineapig: Valuable has many subtle nuances
EldarLuin: Open-air school
OldUncleDan: The joke is that there are schools in Houston, TX that are planning on removing libraries and replacing them with "Disciplinary Centers."
bytecaster: We are a freshman only school!
Dragonality: You didn't go to MY school. Definitely had metal detectors and a permanent police presence.
LordZarano: @Bratmon We had classes in the library sometimes
Juliamon: Library classes were best classes
OtherEdgeworth: @Bratmon Well, in Australia, when it is summer and you want to spend break in the air conditioning rather than getting skin cancer under the hell-sun
bytecaster: Also students love table, and library has table!
betweenmyself: “Our school is very specialized. We only offer instruction for the second semester for Sophomores, and only in Math, Shop and German.”
Basic_Human_Decency: a class in the library is just to play oregano trail
OldUncleDan: The best part of the Library, it was a sanctuary from the school bullies. I liked that!
GreatWahooney: I used to play ADOM off a flash drive at the library which confused other students
TehAmelie: we'd play games and read books in the library most every break. public readings of Jean M Auel was a recurring gag
iris_of_ether: FBtouchdown
Bratmon: I guess my school didn't really have "You have no class so just wander around and do whatever" time.
bytecaster: I feel like toilets should be unlocked at the beginning
OldUncleDan: @Bratmon There is also before and after school hours.
Juliamon: Bratmon It's typically called "recess"
OldUncleDan: All video games are just "Dwarf Fortress."
Basic_Human_Decency: based
RealGamerCow: hit tha bricks
xantos69: @OldUncleDan All video games are just pong.
OldUncleDan: @xantos69 Except for Pong.
OldUncleDan: That's just Tennis.
TehAmelie: hey, i'm not sure even Dwarf Fortress has separate stats for needing to pee and poo
bytecaster: Yeah, why DID you?
wildpeaks: the principal just had one of those days
TehAmelie: Supernintendo Chalmers would be proud
Bratmon: This game would be well served by having an outhouse or something that starts unlocked.
saucemaster5000: that is a woman who has given up. Vodka on the desk in plain sight, not even in a mug
empyreon: asserting dominance?
Juliamon: Who's gonna tell Mx Trunchbull to NOT shit on the floor?
v_nome: That's what we hired janitors for, we're a busy person and don't have time for toilets
bytecaster: If the students are allowed to, so am I!
GreatWahooney: open the door, shit on the floor, do the dinosaur?
betweenmyself: Principal just trying to show the students that they’re hip.
korvys: Adding a way for kids to get food feels like an own goal in the fight against poop
iris_of_ether: Look, I have a digestive disease and even I don't shit on the floor
xantos69: @korvys I have never seen a more wise comment.
MWGNZ: depends on the bodies ability to prcess lectose and gluten
iris_of_ether: The floor is for *vomit*
Juliamon: Principal is too poor to afford a new package of Depends
TehAmelie: we like to exaggerate a bit but how much of the time are we really spending on bathroom issues, like 25%?
Fe1ix66: I mean toilets aren't "necessary"
wildpeaks: no pooping until grades improve
OldUncleDan: So a school run by Hypatia?
xantos69: Like a studio apartment!
betweenmyself: Three things high school students respond well to: comparing Shakespeare to gangsta rap, sitting in a seat backwards, and shitting on the floor in full view of the student body.
Chrysoprase: What is that janitor doing? He entered the toilets with the students still on it?
GreatWahooney: a tough esports moment
A_Dub888: @Chrysoprase Trying to prevent the mess before it happens
SnowBuddy18: that student was an alien, that's why
sbuiko: the ghost made em unsave
sbuiko: but you chose the other option hmm
GreatWahooney: @Chrysoprase hygiene over privacy
ElektroTal: heya friends, are you folks gonna do Venba for talking sim?
wildpeaks: ohh yes, Venba is adorable
GreatWahooney: janitor, crawling over cubicle: did I hear shittin noises in here?
CaptainSpam: Next week, Two Point Campus!
Alephred: Logically, the students are the danger.
betweenmyself: This is clearly one of those high class schools where the students aren’t constantly trying to shiv each other.
TehAmelie: in the same way Cities Skyline is really a game where you build a support system for traffic, this is a poop management simulator
SnowBuddy18: internal poop volume implies external poop volume
matthaus_c: just like Cult of the Lamb
loufghyslaufey: A what Managerial Simulator?
korvys: Some of them *ask* you to make them poop food
loufghyslaufey: lrrSPOOP NotLikeThis TableHere NewRecord StinkyGlitch
Bratmon: I would love to read an essay about how Cities Skylines' design was influenced by the studio's previous game.
GreatWahooney: @SnowBuddy18 internal poop volume contributes to external poop volume
Bratmon: (Although that may be because I'm the only human being on the planet who played Cities in Motion)
Mazrae: Different cliches
TehAmelie: is school in 7 days a week or are we skipping over weekends? who knows
loufghyslaufey: A weekly time dilation of 9 weeks?
xantos69: Cheer50 Bits
CaptainSpam: Well, I played CiM2...
matthaus_c: hopefully less poop
korvys: Probably less poop in hand of doom
loufghyslaufey: I meme- 9 days?
matthaus_c: or one stream getting through the tutorial
wildpeaks: dear god BG3, i'm already at 130 hours x.x
TheMerricat: We lied disco Elysium
DoodlestheGreat: This was fun today. School is hell.
TehAmelie: 4 months, in 3 hours a week increments?
Fe1ix66: It is co-op
TheMerricat: Liked
Fe1ix66: there would be a lot of talking
Bratmon: Right, it was CiM 2.

SkylerRingtail: BG3 as a long-term 4-person playthrough would be A Thing
matthaus_c: tugging some lrrms
GreatWahooney: BG3 for The Long Game maybe
loufghyslaufey: I wish 9 days for a week sounded good; of enough!?
DoodlestheGreat: We've had a lotta poo this week.
Juliamon: BG3 would be a ...One More? probably
LordZarano: @GreatWahooney The Long Gate
Bratmon: Play Vintage
Juliamon: also you could make the case that BG3 is *kinda* Dice Friends, if you try to stay in character

wildpeaks: baii
matthaus_c: coproludens
GreatWahooney: lrrGARBO
LordZarano: @Juliamon Right! ...One More? is the "we just want to play this a bunch" show
GreatWahooney: bye!
empyreon: lrrSHINE lrrSHINE lrrSHINE
loufghyslaufey: It kind of hurt lrrCAMERON for him both hear & say that...
TheMerricat: Chat, I haven't actually been following BG3 much at all, I remember the older Bg's had a pseudo coop, anyone know if 3 does too?
LordZarano: lrrGARBO
loufghyslaufey: That's probably why he's going to lie down.
EvilBadman: @TheMerricat it do
KeytarCat: @TheMerricat It's like Divinity 2
TehAmelie: just remembered there is a school with the motto "i learn through suffering"
TehAmelie: Disco inferno, in latin
TehAmelie: might have been hilarious for us
TehAmelie: (and now chat thinks about how Disco Elysium translates)
Thefluffiestguineapig: Sorry, weird pedant just got back from putting delicious leftovers in the over with new cheese on top, isn't Elysium Greek and not Latin? The Elysian fields are a part of the Greek underworld
TehAmelie: i was just thinking that
Seagulyus: @Thefluffiestguineapig yeah, Elysium is Greek
TehAmelie: the -ium sounds latin
Seagulyus: the Greek is Elysion
Seagulyus: *shakes fist in the air* darn Romans and us remembering things because of them rather than where they came from!
TehAmelie: fun fact, Caesar didn't say "et tu, Brute" because in that time, in that social class, t
Thefluffiestguineapig: You could say the same about the British Empire
TehAmelie: in Rome, they spoke Greek
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also Shakespeare was a very successful propagandist
TehAmelie: yeah that's all on him
Seagulyus: @Thefluffiestguineapig *shakes fist in air* darn British Empire and us remembering everything through their reliquary of stolen treasures and heritage artifacts!
Thefluffiestguineapig: There are a lot of things that fall squarely on his shoulders. As someone who is fascinated by the Cousins War the amount of things that were allowed to live warped in cultural memory while the documents were destroyed is infuriating
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Seagulyus Also refusing to give them back
Thefluffiestguineapig: I could go on about the museum system being horrific but I will just say to go watch the Last Week Tonight bit on museums and prepare to be super angry, and if you are like me, even angrier when you read their sources directly
