loufghyslaufey: Notice how untitled goose game technically didn't have an interactive box in it? I'm just guessing. My headcanon wants geese to fear boxes.

DigitalSeahorse: mushrooms are more edible
Critterbot: O-okay...
jacqui_lantern234: huh fascinating
FarleyF: huh - the more you know
margieargie: I guess that's getting into a philosophical question about what "eating" is

ANeMzero: gunhed

spawnofhastur: excellent work on the monikers stream yesterday alex

Nigouki: Jigabachi, which does actually mean digger wasp
Thefluffiestguineapig: Alex is having a big week for weird things he's intaking. Snorting the bits on Wednesday and the glue today
Nigouki: you can get a 1/72 scale model kit of those from Kotobukiya
Thefluffiestguineapig: I know last time Cam was on I probably asked this, but I know Phobos and Deimos are the two sons of Mars, is Phobos the god of fear or the god of terror?
Raincoast_Bear: I'm hoping for more KIll Team soon on the mighty LRR channel...
HasturTheYellow: Oh hey, Models
spawnofhastur: @Thefluffiestguineapig correct.
spawnofhastur: Phobos is what gave us the word "phobia".
princess_intell: I keep expecting him to pull something completely sick out of his pocket, like a handmade pocket knife or a copper ingot
HasturTheYellow: I'm waiting for paint to dry and brain to get back into painting mode to finish off some Chaos Warriors turned into Pathfinder (TTRPG) Hellknights
princess_intell: Does GW *like* its playerbase
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur Right! I always forget that word origin
Thefluffiestguineapig: @princess_intell Honestly, no
Raincoast_Bear: @princess_intell They are utterly indifferent. They only care if you buy their minis.
InsaneVioletMage: Official Statement "Get good"
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Raincoast_Bear They care in the same way the Lovecraftian leviathans care. Not at all and barely even notice they exist
princess_intell: Except God help you if you use their copyright, is my impressive
princess_intell: *impression
Thefluffiestguineapig: The cover for those snips is very cool
spawnofhastur: i wish i had a thagomizer.
benv0li0: Hello, Jax and I are watching. Spudgers are awesome. Hi Alex
MistahFixIt: A thin nonmetal, non-destructive prying implement
flatluigi: who up dibbling they garlic
DigitalSeahorse: xD
Thefluffiestguineapig: @princess_intell The LGS I used to work at nearly had our permission to sell any GW product revoked because we copy and pasted the info from their website into our webstore. Apparently you are not permitted to use the lore in your descriptions, only exactly what is in the box, and no images aside from what is on the box because the painted ones are some kind of protected nonsense
benv0li0: this is the third time Dibblers have come up today. too many gardening shows
DigitalSeahorse: PrideLaugh
betweenmyself: Garlic Dibbler has to register with the state on a yearly basis pennyWhat
princess_intell: Hello HR someone was dibbling their garlic at work today
FarleyF: Garlic Dibbler - Ie Dracula's S&M Product Kappa
jacqui_lantern234: poggifers! have my garlic dibbled, would you?
Thefluffiestguineapig: A Most Decadent Man Crapshot about Dibbling the Garlic
spawnofhastur: i've managed to fall into the firearms design rabbithole which is fun.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Where he has a crossover with Gardening Greg
DigitalSeahorse: needle nose pliers?
Nigouki: it would, i have actually killed a pair of Wave single-edge nippers when I forgot I reinforced a part with a brass pin
Thefluffiestguineapig: Paul brings up a good point that Mail Time had received many, many miniature construction supplies
Thefluffiestguineapig: The issue would be locating it in a timely manner
princess_intell: Called god hands and yet break when used things not designed for, tsk tsk
TehAmelie: on funny names for tools, i like the word in swedish for awl, "pryl". it means thingy
spawnofhastur: i love the dumb names things have in woodworking. like "kerf".
TehAmelie: "plane" and "level" are pretty good too.
DigitalSeahorse: LOL
spawnofhastur: I like the woodworking tools called holdfasts. Because they hold things. Fast.
DigitalSeahorse: xD
MistahFixIt: Frangible Toolkit
Arclight_Dynamo: I like "spud bar."
FarleyF: i mean there was that stephen king story about the toy soldiers that were actually alive and fired real weapons. Spoiler for the ending there was something like a claymore in the box
TehAmelie: i remember it was a tiny ICBM
Arclight_Dynamo: "Latish"
spawnofhastur: Alex have you seen the pinnacle of Australian engineering, the Field Ration Eating Device? It's a spoon, a can-opener and a bottle opener all in one.
Bugberry: the more obtuse the better
FarleyF: @princess_intell ok that would be an awesome video game - like instead of classes you have different races/factions
FarleyF: @TehAmelie tiny nuke yeah
Arclight_Dynamo: I'm a tax trooper!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @FarleyF I think this might exist but I am struggling to come up with the name
TehAmelie: about as powerful as a claymore probably
Bugberry: Ahsoka is also really good.
SmashTCG: the dreaded Waste disposal Trooper
Thefluffiestguineapig: I love that they have to do that
princess_intell: @arclight_dynamo like... collecting taxes under threat of baseball bat?
Thefluffiestguineapig: And by love I mean hate
FarleyF: *lalalalala*
Bugberry: Luthen does have a Kyber Crystal and mentions the Rakatan empire from Legends.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @princess_intell Isn't that just mob enforcer work?
betweenmyself: riffGasp LALALA
goombalax: they probably had to give Andy Serkis a robe and a saber for when the executives walk in and then get rid of his shoes when they leave
Arclight_Dynamo: @princess_intell And a blaster pistol!
princess_intell: I thought Andor was a planet
Arclight_Dynamo: @princess_intell It is a planet... in Star Trek.
arkham1981: Are the spoilers over yet?
Juliamon: Yep
princess_intell: Oh you sci fi geeks
DigitalSeahorse: lol
FarleyF: and we are back
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: In the old EU, there's a bit about how Luke looks at Han through the force cause he assumes he has to be fired sensitive. Nope, just stupid lucky
DigitalSeahorse: they are done with spoilers
loufghyslaufey: Oh, spoils-free? Nevermind. Eyes says nothing
Bugberry: The Force played a part in Rogue One despite no Jedi being in it.
DaxStrife: I like Star Wars media that acknowledges there are faor more non-Jedi/Sith people in this universe too.
Thefluffiestguineapig: I hate they have used the force to break any rules they established
spawnofhastur: My favourite Star Wars thing is the Aing-Ti from Legends.
Thefluffiestguineapig: The rules are what make a world interesting
Bugberry: save for Vader
betweenmyself: “And/Or” is the most indecisive of Star Wars media riffYeti
spawnofhastur: Where they're like "light and dark side? we see the entire spectrum of light guys."
Thefluffiestguineapig: My favorite thing is the Timothy Zahn Thrawn trilogy
Serpens77: Force ta'veren
MistahFixIt: "A space-wizard did it"
DaxStrife: @betweenmyself LUL
Bugberry: @Thefluffiestguineapig what rules are broken?
FarleyF: Boooooo Boooooo
iris_of_ether: @Serpens77 ...why are you right omg
princess_intell: SPACE wizard. The SPACE wizard did it.
Astramentha: Midicholorians ex machina
DigitalSeahorse: PrideLaugh
spawnofhastur: it amuses me that the design of the millenium falcon is based off of a hamburger with a bite taken out of it.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Bugberry In the original trilogy not much, but in the new Disney movies I'll just say Luke in the third movie and leave it at that
Serpens77: @iris_of_ether I love the description from TVTropes "According to Moiraine, the three were "ta'veren" (an Old Tongue word meaning "Main Characters")"
Bugberry: @Thefluffiestguineapig that doesn't really deviate that much from the nonsense the Force has done throughout canon, including Legends.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur One of my favorite production things is one of the costume designers and the actor who was the original Chewbacca discussing in some special features what they had to do in order to keep him cool enough to work
spawnofhastur: The Cantina music is canonically referreed to as "jizz music".
Arclight_Dynamo: Huh. Makes sense, given Lucas' Metropolis influences.
Bugberry: I hope Andor season 2 shows more aliens, considering the Empire also is very anti-nonhuman.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Bugberry I don't want to do spoilers if people don't want them for the Force Awakens trilogy but Force healing breaks the established limits for what you can do with the force
Arclight_Dynamo: Phil Tippett.
saucemaster5000: there are structures at the Port of Oakland that were the inspiration for the AT-AT walkers and to this day it's all I see when I drive by
Thefluffiestguineapig: The major show of Force power Leia does in that trilogy is also bonkers
Bugberry: @Thefluffiestguineapig but that is also in Legends.
Thefluffiestguineapig: But anyways!!
spawnofhastur: Reagan was worse though.
Juliamon: Hahaha, good thing we learned from that though... . . . .
iris_of_ether: x_x
spawnofhastur: Only Nixon could go to China.
DigitalSeahorse: EPA?
iris_of_ether: Environmental Protection Act
Thefluffiestguineapig: The thing about Legends is it was similar to SCP in that there was no one firm canon. Things were roughly agreed on but you can say almost anything happened in Legends somewhere
Juliamon: DigitalSeahorse Environmental Protection Agency
DigitalSeahorse: ooooh
FarleyF: ala Dont hurt the trees
DigitalSeahorse: ty
Arclight_Dynamo: Ninja Turtles.
TheAinMAP: I heard Reagan got a villain named after him.
spawnofhastur: TNMT too yeah
DigitalSeahorse: voxlunRad
iris_of_ether: And politicians keep trying to defang the EPA even *now*....
DigitalSeahorse: voxlunRad voxlunGeiger
Bugberry: @Thefluffiestguineapig sure, but I was responding to the claim that it was a Disney canon specific issue.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Yeah, there have been politicians who talked about how before about 1990 the people in Congress would all hang out together outside of sessions and were friends
spawnofhastur: @iris_of_ether BUT THE FREE MARKET
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Bugberry Ah, ok, that's fair, sorry I misunderstood
FarleyF: funniest thing about the toxic avenger is that they made a cartoon of an R rated movie
Nigouki: Drums. Drums in the deep.
DigitalSeahorse: uhoh
TheMerricat: "The Love Canal area was originally the site of an abandoned canal that became a dumping ground for nearly 22,000 tons of chemical waste (including polychlorinated biphenyls, dioxin, and pesticides) produced by the Hooker Chemicals and Plastics Corporation in the 1940s and '50s"
Thefluffiestguineapig: And now the Republicans and Democrats don't speak to each other really
Arclight_Dynamo: In law school, we read a case where someone set the harbour of Sydney, Australia on fire in the early 1900s. Like... the *water* caught on fire.
DigitalSeahorse: openseBeeps voxlunGeiger voxlunRad
Thefluffiestguineapig: I love that radioactive waste is basically all in limbo
TheMerricat: "From 1942 to 1953, the Hooker Chemical Company, with government sanction, began using the partially dug canal as a chemical waste dump. At the end of this period, the contents of the canal consisted of around 21,000 tons of toxic chemicals, including at least twelve that are known carcinogens (halogenated organics, chlorobenzenes, and dioxin among them). Hooker capped the 16-acre hazardous waste landfill in clay and sold the land to the Niagara Falls School Board, attempting to absolve itself
Thefluffiestguineapig: Because they won't build a place for it because no politician wants to be accused of having that
Thefluffiestguineapig: In their district
yuan42: HUH, that is an expression that ive never heard
TheMerricat: I will say again. They sold the toxic dump to a SCHOOL BOARD.
Bugberry: @Thefluffiestguineapig It kind of ties into why I find the Wars/Trek rivalry silly. SW is fantasy and not true scifi.
DigitalSeahorse: openseBeeps voxlunGeiger voxlunCarp
Juliamon: Love how when my mom was pregnant with me she would swim in our pond, which was fed by a superfund site

DigitalSeahorse: cooooool

Thefluffiestguineapig: Like has different schools of clowning to study
CopperAstronaut: Nifty
Thefluffiestguineapig: NO
Thefluffiestguineapig: Unguided nuclear is terrifying
DigitalSeahorse: Alex's grandpa was so cooool
Arclight_Dynamo: The point is to set off nuclear bombs over Canada rather than over the US.
Arclight_Dynamo: Yay.
MistahFixIt: "Don't worry about it"
spawnofhastur: Don't forget the Davy Crockett
SquareDotCube: the Crockett missile?
shurtal: 1964
Thefluffiestguineapig: @MistahFixIt That's the same policy that they have about the horrifying number of mussiles that have been lost over the US
DoodlestheGreat: The Davy Crocket remains the most WTF weapon of the Cold War.
rosesmcgee: Man portable atomic artillery, let's go
CopperAstronaut: I am sorry I had asked twice already, but is their anyway to ask Alex what documentary he was referencing? (If not no worries)
FarleyF: i mean to be fair C&C Generals Chinese had the Nuke Artillery
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: Genie apparently had the code name Ding Dong at one point. Can you imagine being the guy to order the uranium for project ding dong
spawnofhastur: It was a Recoilless Rifle.
rosesmcgee: I used to work where they tested those
MistahFixIt: I believe it's maximum range couldn't exceed its own blast radius
ghyllnox: Oh kinda like Fallout nukes
Thefluffiestguineapig: @rosesmcgee That seems like a high stress workplace
DigitalSeahorse: voxlunFoam
Bugberry: it may have been a cold war but that doesn't mean insane weapons weren't being developed.
rosesmcgee: @Thefluffiestguineapig You couldn't be more wrong. Just don't go past the radioactive hazard signs out in the desert.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Honestly the insanity of weapons developed post atom bomb are rivaled in their bonkersness only by things developed during WWI when they were first mechanizing warfare
spawnofhastur: They developed a program to use the Davy Crockett in peace-time applications. It didn't really work out.
DoodlestheGreat: Can't imagine why.
CranstonSnord: France: hold my wine
MistahFixIt: L'fuque
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur Is that where the atomic infrastructure projects/mining came from?
Juliamon: fire ze missiles
TheAinMAP: "Warning shot"?
spawnofhastur: The SLAM/Flying Crowbar is my favourite batshit insane cold war thing
NotCainNorAbel: nuke warning shot is an attention getter
Arclight_Dynamo: It's the "Air-sol moyenne portée"
Arclight_Dynamo: "In French nuclear doctrine, it is referred to as a "pre-strategic" weapon, the last-resort "warning shot" prior to a full-scale employment of strategic nuclear weapons launched from the Triomphant-class ballistic missile submarines."
ghizmou: it s called a deterrent shot
Thefluffiestguineapig: WHAT
Arclight_Dynamo: Pre. Strategic. Weapon.
Thefluffiestguineapig: When the Russians are telling you "hey, simmer down"
rosesmcgee: Like the town of Springfield being designated Nuclear Whipping Boy
CopperAstronaut: WAT?
MistahFixIt: We're all very confused
FarleyF: suddenly the simpsons episode regardng the french and the atomic bomb makes sense
DigitalSeahorse: reminds me of North Korea
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah. Dead Hand.

DoodlestheGreat: O.P.E.
3 raiders from McGurganatorZX have joined!
MistahFixIt: The Dead Hand iirc
Thefluffiestguineapig: Welcome raiders!
Arclight_Dynamo: Meanwhile, the British developed a nuclear landmine that had a live chicken in it.
FarleyF: why have nukes when you can have Planet Busters - Just strap a Quantum Singularity onto a nuke and go nuts
DrakoniteDev wonders what he just came in to
McGurganatorZX: beep beep gunbrella is neat
Master_Gunner: @Arclight_Dynamo I love the chicken mines
ShaneLeeAtk: Hello, Raiders!
spawnofhastur: What about BF Skinner's Pigeon Missiles?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @DrakoniteDev The Alex and Cam talk about terrifying Cold War stuff show
shurtal: @Arclight_Dynamo WAT
Master_Gunner: in 9 timelines out of 10, humanity never survived the cold war.
Arclight_Dynamo: @shurtal The chicken's body heat would keep the mine from freezing.
DoodlestheGreat: Not so much automatic as it releases the individual missile silos so that their commanders can decide whether or not to launch.
CopperAstronaut: Agreed
Bugberry: it may not be the best of all possible worlds, but at least it still exists.
FarleyF: Side note - this is a really great format, just two friends talking about random stuff while building things
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur Pigeons are actually potentially great at assisting with locating people lost at sea because of their color vision
shurtal: @Arclight_Dynamo Well, time to go out and feed the nuclear mines
MistahFixIt: Correct.
CopperAstronaut: I’ve had those days.
Thefluffiestguineapig: They are trying to figure out how to implement it consistently
CopperAstronaut: Yep
spawnofhastur: Apparently it was more economical to train pigeons to guide missiles than to develop computerised things.
SnackPak_: that dude jumping on the mcdonalds counter ruined it
Thefluffiestguineapig: Same principle as Portal
RebekahWSD: My husband watches Rick and Morty and doesn't go anywhere about it online in any form, it saves the brain
DrakoniteDev: The sauce BS was apparently a stunt pulled by a guerilla marketing company
MistahFixIt: Some of the hardest lines I've ever heard came from R&M
Bugberry: As a fan of Steven Universe and Undertale, people blaming shows for the fandoms is very familiar.
spawnofhastur: Rick could be walking around with a sign over his head that says "DO NOT BE THE ASSHOLE" and the fans would take it the wrong way.
MistahFixIt: "Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what makes you cheer", etc.
princess_intell: I just want a no-belch cut of the show
princess_intell: I can't with the belching
betweenmyself: It’s like with some people who watch ‘The Boys’ and are unable to understand that being a main character does not equate to “being the good guy”
DigitalSeahorse: I thought it was between the musical bars for a sec
spawnofhastur: That happened to my dad once. He went home, changed his clothes, and tried to get back into the samee bar.
DigitalSeahorse: on paper
FarleyF: well with the changing of the guard that might change re belching
princess_intell: The pilot of the boys is one of the best episodes of television I've ever watched
princess_intell: It's just so raw and unflinching and unapologetic
Thefluffiestguineapig: @betweenmyself ^For real
princess_intell: With or without the fandom politics
CopperAstronaut: But in a good way. :)
princess_intell: OH that one
DigitalSeahorse: Hell of a Boss
CopperAstronaut: Fair
Thefluffiestguineapig: For me this is similar to the idea of Westworld being very difficult to recommend because there is no pithy way to market it and no one is really good
DoodlestheGreat: No, HELLUVA Boss.
Arclight_Dynamo: GOD, the first season of Westworld is so good, though.
spawnofhastur: Hazbin Hotel is the one I'm interested in rather than Helluva Boss
flatluigi: helluva boss is very invader zim era hot topic
princess_intell: It is extremely Tumblr. If you don't like Tumblr, don't watch the show
Lysander_salamander: hello everyone!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur Did that get a full first season?
drane10 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 74 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, drane10! (Today's storm count: 135)
DrakoniteDev: @Arclight_Dynamo shame there was only ever one season
TheWanderingNomad: And even then didn't they ahve to redub the song with another singer?
ghyllnox: Oh, this is where some fanart I thought was from Hazbin came from
spawnofhastur: y'all spoken about Fiona and Cake yet?
DoodlestheGreat: No, they had to redo the episode to have another person sing the song. Ke$ha did the speaking voice for the character.
princess_intell: It's genuinely the most cartoon network-looking show to ever be extremely not for children
TheWanderingNomad: Singer was pretty spot on tho
CopperAstronaut: It is very bombastic
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Arclight_Dynamo You can tell they spent 10 years just in development tuning that first season to an atomic level where every single decision from writing to production served the story. Then they made them do the entire thing for season 2 in less than a year to have it ready for the next "television season"
Thefluffiestguineapig: And you can tell
SnackPak_: lrrWOW
Arclight_Dynamo: @Thefluffiestguineapig Yuuuup.
DoodlestheGreat: Driving along, stimming.
spawnofhastur: i have seen many people very excited about fiona and cake
princess_intell: Cam, please describe the exact taste of model paint
loufghyslaufey: The Helluva Boss did okay in the pilot. I oddly didn't have the attention span to follow up the rest of the show after the pilot.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Arclight_Dynamo Then when people were angry and stopped watching they gave them more time for season 3. By which I mean 18 months
CopperAstronaut: Gotta use the thick rod for the industrial applications.
DigitalSeahorse: yeah
DigitalSeahorse: I'm funding it
yuan42: i love this shot of cam's side and the side of the glue just saying "poison"
ghyllnox: Oh really? Awesome! That's a great story
spawnofhastur: Lackadaisy is great yeah
emberBecky: I loved the comic and I still haven't watched the cartoon I'm so bad. I will!
CopperAstronaut: Oh yeah, I love the pilot
DigitalSeahorse: with the help of the rest of backerkit donors
TheMerricat: And it's set in Saint Louis!!!!!
Thefluffiestguineapig: And they finally gave them breathing room for season 4 but it suffers from the rushing of the previous 2 which dumpstered alot of their careful orchestration
niccus: when's the kill six billion demons syndication
Juliamon: Tracy went *so hard* on research for Lackadaisy
DoodlestheGreat: Lackidaisy is great. They did a funding drive and ended up with enough for a half dozen episodes.
flatluigi: kill six billion demons is such a great comic
DigitalSeahorse: Tracy Butler is awesome at research
Thefluffiestguineapig: I have heard that Murder Drones is a decent new show
DoodlestheGreat: Seraphina uses a cut down BAR simjilar to what Bonnie Parker used to use. And Freckle did use a Thompson in the pilot.
DigitalSeahorse: I think I remember Freckle with a tommy in the comic but I could be misremembering
spawnofhastur: yeah, i recalled Freckle using a tommy gun
Thefluffiestguineapig: That sound EXHAUSTING
Master_Gunner: yeah, machine guns tended to break a lot of things.
RebekahWSD: We had one Tommy Gun in our Call of Cthulhu game, the guy was a gangster. And he also fled at all opportunities, which solved that problem for us!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Master_Gunner See the WWI casualty records for example
spawnofhastur: iirc chicago gangsters mostly used a Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless
SquareDotCube: also Thompsons have pretty bad muzzle climb so it's hard to keep on target
princess_intell: So everyone had pistols and shotguns is what you're saying
DigitalSeahorse: piped
Master_Gunner: IIRC, the most common place you'd find Tommy Guns in the 20s/30s were postal train guards.
CopperAstronaut: Lol
DoodlestheGreat: And the Americans went and developed the M-3 Grease Gun.
spawnofhastur: The Grease Gun is wonderful.
Thefluffiestguineapig: The actual reality of the Thompson is not nearly as powerful as the Chicago Typewriter meme/mythology would have people believe
Arclight_Dynamo: Sten guns and Hurricanes - marvels of necessity.
princess_intell: @master_gunner that makes so much sense
spawnofhastur: Down here in Australia we had the Owen Gun
Arclight_Dynamo: Ugly, functional.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Tell Dale!
HasturTheYellow: Pathfinder is fantastic
BrowneePoints: 1 or 2's misfire
Master_Gunner: turns out a slug of steel inside a tube attached to a smaller tube is easy to make and works perfectly fine.
spawnofhastur: The Russians had the PPS-43
CopperAstronaut: I love how slow the grease gun is. You can actually re-aim it between shots.
HasturTheYellow: Early Firearms are 1-2 with some especially shoddy ones being 1-2
HasturTheYellow: 1-3*
BrowneePoints: same for the Fighter Subclass in 5e I think
Arclight_Dynamo: IRL, we had gunpowder for a *long* time before we had guns.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @BrowneePoints The firearms equivalent in 5e has some fascinating things to balance it out but it is not a class for inexperienced players. And a player can run circles around an inexperienced DM or one who can't be mean to people
Bugberry: Glass Cannon podcast had a Gunslinger character and made the gun a unique thing that most people had never seen before.
rosesmcgee: Reminds me of Arcanum, which was a great CRPG from Troika
DigitalSeahorse: crossbows are cool
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Arclight_Dynamo See fireworks. The chinese tried weaponizing them and decided it wasn't worth it
yuan42: reminds me of early game guns in terraria, super expensive for high fire rate
HasturTheYellow: Fun thing, Firearms on Golarion (Pathfinder's home world) Firearms are limited to about *three* countries on the entire planet, everywhere else it's incredibly rare to find
spawnofhastur: You didn't need to start with someone's grandparents to make a crossbowman
Arclight_Dynamo: @Thefluffiestguineapig Exactly!
HasturTheYellow: And one of those three places
Thefluffiestguineapig: Longbow deformations in skeletons are bonkers
HasturTheYellow: Is Cowboy-Genreville
spawnofhastur: iirc the arbalest (steel crossbows) were made illegal by the pope
HasturTheYellow: Because Wizards blew away all the magic in an old Magic wa
Thefluffiestguineapig: They keep finding more and more of them are endemic to the longbowmen
princess_intell: Wait skull deformations?
FarleyF: "Any idiot could crank it then hit someone with relative accuracy" - sounds like the modern day american Kappa
HasturTheYellow: war*. Meaning all Magic was hard to deal with in the lands of Alkensar, so they made science and bullets
DigitalSeahorse: LOL
shurtal: two hande them
spawnofhastur: Yep, the arbalest was banned by Pope Innocent II as a weapon of mass destruction.
CopperAstronaut: Lol
Thefluffiestguineapig: @princess_intell I don't know about skull deformation but I know they started training so young their arms were distinctly different with very different evidence of muscle mass
SquareDotCube: and then pirates figured out "powder bag? Why not pistola instead?"
BrowneePoints: Alex! They aren't called Feral Hogs anymore, they're Orcs
DigitalSeahorse: with their pe- *boom dead*
loufghyslaufey: I'm meh at crossbows. They're fine. In character creation or sheeting, I'd probably avoid crossbows if possible.
BrowneePoints: you're right. The Dutch
princess_intell: The knock back must be pretty stellar on a crossbow
Thefluffiestguineapig: @SquareDotCube I don't know how much of this was real but the stereotype is they would use almost anything not valuable for survival in a cannon because cannonballs were so ruinously expensive
BrowneePoints: "Guns were introduced to Japan by Portuguese adventurers who were shipwrecked near the shore of Tanegashima, a small island south of Kyushu, in 1543" @LoadingReadyRun
BrowneePoints: Alex is spot on
Thefluffiestguineapig: Yup
spawnofhastur: I think Alex and Cam will appreciate this
princess_intell: Well when you see a good idea, why wait
princess_intell: Or at least an effective idea
DrakoniteDev: Have you ever read the material components for fireball in D&D? It's a recipe for a type of gunpowder
Thefluffiestguineapig: Paul being the good MC as always
CopperAstronaut: They they kind of remind me of the jezail
Thefluffiestguineapig: That's TTSF during hobby night
ContingentCat: sounds like a Cam and Alex stream lol
FarleyF: i mean im in that
Thefluffiestguineapig: Dolls and doom!
princess_intell: These are always so chill
HasturTheYellow: @DrakoniteDev Yep, Bat Guano and a pinch of sulfur
DigitalSeahorse: popcicle time!
Juliamon: Thefluffiestguineapig DID YOU SEE THE NEW KITTEN
princess_intell: I just had a Popsicle
MistahFixIt: @DrakoniteDev It's like, a whiff of saltpetre and a small bead of bat guano or something like that, right?
princess_intell: The kind that comes as a little plastic tube
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon No!!!!! I've been dealing with the vet assistant training paperwork
Thefluffiestguineapig: I need to go check that right now
Arclight_Dynamo: @princess_intell Ah. A freezie.
princess_intell: @juliamon what kitten and where can I see them
neisan2112: KITTY
DrakoniteDev: @MistahFixIt Something like that, though IIRC three ingredients
spawnofhastur: oh damn, they *scrungly*
MistahFixIt: Tiny Screm
princess_intell: OMG ANGU
Thefluffiestguineapig: That is unacceptably cute
princess_intell: *ANGY
Juliamon: he SO SCRUNGLY
Sorator13: Kitty!
Sorator13: So spiky!
Sorator13: so screm!
Thefluffiestguineapig: And when that kitten grows up I predict he will be utterly gorgeous
princess_intell: But why angy
FarleyF: linab1Peek
Juliamon: he angy bc he probably full of worms
Thefluffiestguineapig: For anyone in chat this is the website
emberBecky: *gasp* oh just looked, that's a very good kitten
ContingentCat: @Juliamon omg so small and so mad
princess_intell: Whose kitten
spawnofhastur: my kitty is currently angy coz she's got fleas and her new batch of flea repellent hasn't arrived yet.
emberBecky: good level of fuzziness
ghyllnox: "Would you love me if I was full of worms"
Thefluffiestguineapig: @ContingentCat As someone who is short and petite sometimes having a small amount of mass exponentially increases the possible rage
DrakoniteDev: I remember reading several D&D spells material components and having a laugh realizing they were all the ingredients to do the effect for real, as though it is implied wizard spells in the world of D&D are just science tricks
DigitalSeahorse: openseBeeps PrideFloat openseBeeps PrideFloat
Thefluffiestguineapig: The worms probably also mean the fur is not good quality
ghyllnox: Omg the first thing I see on that website is "Recent News"
ghyllnox: *Mews
ghyllnox: Do not autocorrect me
Thefluffiestguineapig: So once the worms have been expelled and many calories consumed I think this kitty will be FLUFFY
ContingentCat: @Thefluffiestguineapig as someone on the short side I get that too, it becomes concentrated
Juliamon: he will be a v good floofer eventually, also his name is Bill
Juliamon: the jokes have been *numerous* in their discord
Thefluffiestguineapig: @ContingentCat It's the same principle for why ponies are so full of utter hatred
princess_intell: Please tell Bill he is very cute
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon Is this transitioning them out of the money names? Or just because people names for kitties are funny
princess_intell: @contingentcat and then tall people think you being angry is somehow funny and that makes you more angry
SymphonicLolita: Bill, short for Full Of Billowing Rage
Juliamon: it's still a money name (dollar bill)
Juliamon: he gets along with the Petty Cash so far
Thefluffiestguineapig: Glad they are having a good time adjusting
Juliamon: he's apparently ~4wks
princess_intell: You have a cat named petty cash
Thefluffiestguineapig: I really want Dubloon to get along with them too
Thefluffiestguineapig: @princess_intell These are cats at a kitten foster home
princess_intell: Ahhhhh
Thefluffiestguineapig: The website publicizes them and they have a live stream
Juliamon: Dubs was the first to go investigate him
Arclight_Dynamo: Dubloon is a *great* name for a cat.
princess_intell: Are they friends yet
Thefluffiestguineapig: The money names are all very good
Juliamon: Quid seems the most intrigued though
Juliamon: he finally has another floof
Juliamon: also Custard barged in to meet him and he wasn't fazed at all, brave lil guy
Thefluffiestguineapig: Do they have a list of current residents?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon Bill seems like he will be Very Brave
LoadingReadyRun: @Juliamon is Custard a unit of currency somewhere? I want to go to there
princess_intell: With that much rage, it's not bravery so much as a total lack of fear
Thefluffiestguineapig: Because my brain is weird my immediate thought is "next kitten should be Capitol Hill to transition to School House Rock"
FarleyF: maybe the next kitten should be Kroner
Juliamon: Currently awaiting adoption is Raindrop, Sprout, Drizzle, Wellingtons, Squall, and Serenity, Teaspoon is awaiting surgery, the faculty are Custard, Loganberry, Aries, Magnolia, and Edmund
Thefluffiestguineapig: @LoadingReadyRun One that sounds amazing and two the litters of kittens are themed. So you have the money ones
Thefluffiestguineapig: And the Cutensils
Juliamon: and the April Meowers
Thefluffiestguineapig: Right
DigitalSeahorse: hehe
princess_intell: Cam am u ok
Juliamon: Teaspoon's the only Cutensil left
niccus: did you eat the delicious ink
SnackPak_: lrrFINE
TheNerdWonder: I feel like Knuts is a good kitten name, but as I have no cats around, I cannot verify this
Juliamon: uh oh
Arclight_Dynamo: Alex's micis off?
TheAinMAP: lrrFINE
ContingentCat: lrrFINE
shurtal: "product became agitated"
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon She just isn't available because of the medical needs, right?
princess_intell: Describe the exact taste of model paint cameron
HasturTheYellow: For a second I thought Cam meant he almost spilled Nuln Oil all over the desk
Raincoast_Bear: Welcome back to by monitor.
Juliamon: Thefluffiestguineapig Yeah, surgery is in October iirc
FarleyF: lrrCAMERON_BW
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon The fact they take such care to get them all the medical stuff they need is amazing
yuan42: i love vallejo paints, but god they're such a pain to get a hold of lately
princess_intell: RIP Cameron, he was a good dog
Thefluffiestguineapig: The vets that work with them should earn so many good things in life
loufghyslaufey: National Park Rangers, right?
TimWinGame: what chapter will they be?
itsaysTRUENO: red and gold, hello
TehAmelie: we can call it the White Stripes' color scheme
CAKHost: Is Graham in the room? I keep thinking I hear him.
LoadingReadyRun: @CAKHost he is not
spawnofhastur: I was looking into investment casting recently. it's neat!
niccus: fun sentences to find in wikipedia: "This ignited the pyrophoric plutonium, producing a cloud that was dispersed by a 30-knot (56 km/h; 35 mph) wind."
princess_intell: Is the moonbase haunted already?!
ShaneLeeAtk: Phantom Graham
Arclight_Dynamo: @CAKHost Look behind you.
ContingentCat: @CAKHost only in our hearts
FarleyF: The spirit of Graham is in all of us
CAKHost: @LoadingReadyRun Thanks!
CAKHost: My brain continues to cause me phantoms
LoadingReadyRun: maybe you are hearing Graham on your end :p
Raincoast_Bear: I dunno, Alex. I built a 2022 Bandai Gundam kit and the tolerances and registration were damn near perfect.
DigitalSeahorse: rad! voxlunGeiger openseBeeps
Thefluffiestguineapig: @CAKHost Same! It's annoying to deal with them I make the social gaff of respondign to a thing only in my brain
CAKHost: That would be a heck of a feet of Graham being behind me. And also having to deal with a sudden 3 hour diff. XD
DigitalSeahorse: neato
DigitalSeahorse: awesome
Thefluffiestguineapig: Like that one guy who decided that store bought model train parts were not "to scale" enough
Raincoast_Bear: You see those marks on tank armor panels.
Thefluffiestguineapig: It is only for your own satisfaction and is really impressive
DigitalSeahorse: riveting!
Raincoast_Bear: Riveting commentary.
7gorobei: riveting stopped because tank round impact would pop the rivets
spawnofhastur: I learned recently that a bolt or a rivet is basically acting like a really really really stiff spring. and that's neat.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Tangentially related the manufacturing for WWII war infrastructure was so classified that a married couple was not aware they both worked on airplane manufacture until the 1980s
Master_Gunner: more like stapling than nailing
DrakoniteDev: it is like sewing, but metal plates instead of fabric
MistahFixIt: Nowadays we use blind or 'pop' rivets
saucemaster5000: if only there was a word to describe how interested I am in this information.
DigitalSeahorse: like fabric or leather rivets but those have holes or are part of buttons
spawnofhastur: They probably had thermite welding too
Lord_Hosk subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 97 months!
Lord_Hosk: This conversation is... Welding CRAP I mean... rivo... never mind
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Lord_Hosk! (Today's storm count: 136)
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur My guess is probably and the burns must be even more savage than the already horrible welding injuries
Thefluffiestguineapig: The Soviets used the strategy of "throw people at it and some must succeed" for manufacturing, war, basically all things
MistahFixIt: You can control the penetration TO AN EXTENT with voltage.
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: my understanding is that you wanted big things riveted, because welds would crack and separate under strong impacts, like artillery shells or torpedoes
TehAmelie: finding the fine line between arc welding and arc smelting must be tricky
spawnofhastur: I really love the use of stamped metal in firearms it's hella neat.
7gorobei: friction stir welding is used for full penetration welds of large/thick surfaces
MistahFixIt: Shielded Metal Arc Welding - the filler metal is covered in a coating that vaporizes as the rod melts.
DigitalSeahorse: science!
Raincoast_Bear: That continued well after WW2. After the end of the cold war, a number of ex-soviet submarines were sold for exhibit in the West. We had one in New Westminster for a time. The fit and finish on them was described as "Looking like they were made in shop class."
Arclight_Dynamo: Do you get better penetration with oxy-acetylene welding than arc welding?
spawnofhastur: I really like cold welding coz it turns out that in the absence of gas metal doesn't know that it's two pieces instead of one.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also hey sauce! I hate my fridge because one level below maximum my dairy products are actually warm and at max I have had mushrooms, entire heads of bokchoy and containers of cream cheese freeze solid. Like need to sit out for many hours in order to be just frosty
Raincoast_Bear: The flux vaporizes and displaces the Oxygen.
MistahFixIt: You need a deft hand to do it, but it can be done
DigitalSeahorse: or like doing stained glass but with stained glass you don't need to stop oxygen from getting at it, it's just melting and solidifying
Thefluffiestguineapig: For me this relates to the weird stuff I know people have done as an alternative to tattooing. Cold branding seems horrific
spawnofhastur: I've had stuff frozen off of me. Would not recommend if you can avoid it
DigitalSeahorse: stained glass welding is fusion with filler
betweenmyself: Just slap Sponge Bob bandaids on the join and let everyone know a five year old will cry if you try to remove them.
DigitalSeahorse: and sometimes leaf covering
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur Yup, and there it is a small area ideally where most of it is coming off. In my example it is a larger surface area as well
planeswalkagogo: a friend of mine did a Friction Weld at school once by not paying attention while using a zeroing tool
DrakoniteDev: Argon is completely non-reactive, while CO2 does react but in a beneficial way for some types of welding
Thefluffiestguineapig: @betweenmyself Similar to the idea of "my kid is at least dressed, doesn't matter that it's a spider man costume"
spawnofhastur: Electrochemical machining is hella cool.
Morrigan9: silly oxygen, who needs ya
Thefluffiestguineapig: @DrakoniteDev Is Argon one of the gases that Alex mentioned being used in the vacuum in geiger counters?
MistahFixIt: Certain materials like stainless steel and aluminum will react with nitrogen gas apparently.
Raincoast_Bear: Tell us about explosive pressure welding, Alex.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Raincoast_Bear this something done on purpose?
TehAmelie: what do you call the welding method of putting together metal with like molecularly flat surfaces so they just bond?
TheNerdWonder: in space/vacuums you get fun things like contact welding where the pieces of metal forget that they're supposed to not be separate
Raincoast_Bear: @Thefluffiestguineapig Indeed it is!
Orlantia: Turns out, nitrogen breaks down at the 19K degrees C that happens in tig welding
spawnofhastur: That's the issue with casting in stuff like firearms - unless you really know what you're doing you have to x-ray stuff to make sure it's not got... bubbles and stuff in it which would make it explode.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TheNerdWonder I know!! Weird phenomena like that are fascinating
TheNerdWonder: er, forget to be separate. added a "not" in there for some reason
fastlane250: Was going to ask if that came before or after TMI
Thefluffiestguineapig: That's weird
fastlane250: couldn't remember
DigitalSeahorse: dusting time
princess_intell: Someone did their research I guess
Thefluffiestguineapig: Fiction can be eerily precient
betweenmyself: THPOILERTH! riffGasp
DigitalSeahorse: openseBeeps voxlunGeiger voxlunCarp voxlunRad oh no!
DigitalSeahorse: SCRAM
MistahFixIt: "SCRAM the sumbitch" lol
Lord_Hosk: Welding explination
spawnofhastur: Did you see that an aircraft manufacturor used parts that had effectively "fallen off of a truck"?
DrakoniteDev: @Thefluffiestguineapig I don't know what gas is in geiger tubes. I could easily be wrong (and probably am) but I thought it was a reactive gas. I do know Argon is used in a lot of science applications because of how non-reactive it is.
HasturTheYellow: oop
MistahFixIt: @spawnofhastur ...well that's terrifying.
spawnofhastur: coz that's what you want in your boeing airbus: parts with faked certification.
Thefluffiestguineapig: I missed it, is this repair being done while the other glue is setting?
Raincoast_Bear: For broken pegs, I drill them out and replace with piece of paperclip wire.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur O.o
DigitalSeahorse: headgun on gunhead
Orlantia: @drakonitedev Aaron with bromine
SnackPak_: boo
goombalax: C-
princess_intell: Booooo
rosesmcgee: Get that gong back in here
princess_intell: Paul do the thing
saucemaster5000: I support paul
Thefluffiestguineapig: Booooooooooo
DigitalSeahorse: lol
Orlantia: That's more of an AO3 joke, Paul
Raincoast_Bear: Don't boo Paul. Paul is a treasure.
josh___something: The uncle grandpa cross over episode, yeah
loufghyslaufey: Ah, the rental.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also we are hitting many squares on the Cam and Alex stream. We just had the Aliens reference
DigitalSeahorse: my ship isn't being shipped anymore!
princess_intell: I wanted more space war from Steven universe
betweenmyself: It also posts self-insert fanfic… *NOW* who’s the villain? (not Paul)
Bugberry: There's lots of deep references though.
Musicsquid: It’s for people who 14 a decade ago lol
Bugberry: Experiencing the first season's finale was an amazing experience.
DigitalSeahorse: it's better from the beginning
emberBecky: yeah I know what you mean Paul
arkham1981: Fiona and Cake has been pretty good!
Arclight_Dynamo: SU wasn't for me, and that's okay.
Raincoast_Bear: My son and I really like Adventure Time. Neither of us liked Steven Universe.
Juliamon: It's more slow-burn slice-of-life than you normally expect for a kids' show, for better and worse
princess_intell: Same with doctor who
Thefluffiestguineapig: It is like certain fiction podcasts where you have to go back so far to understand it that it is difficult to recommend
DigitalSeahorse: true
Bugberry: I watched it from the beginning after the pilot dropped, because I had heard Adventure Time people created it.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Like Old Gods of Appalachia. It is SO GOOD. But you need all the worldbuilding to truly have the best experiences
josh___something: The best moments are payoffs
princess_intell: Eleven's stuff is so much better when you watch SPOILER, but getting to SPOILER is kind of a huge slog
Thefluffiestguineapig: Same with Westworld honestly
Master_Gunner: My preferred way of watching Babylon 5 was coincidentally being in the same room as someone else watching it.
DaxStrife: The cat-fingers episode is perfect pre-"The Thing" body horror.
NotCainNorAbel: Arrested Development was similar if you wanted it to be super funny
Master_Gunner: Then by the good stuff I had a vague understanding of what's happening.
TehAmelie: i put together an introduction to LRR playlist for my dad the other day. it's like 3 hours of videos not counting Road Quest
drewm1022: Just finished a rewatch of Babylon 5 season 3 last night!
ThreeMemesInATrenchcoat: Part of the thing with Babylon 5 is JMS went in with a whole five-year arc planned out, and it takes a while to set things up early on.
Bugberry: Steven Universe is also great at having silly episodes that hold secret future relevance.
QuixoticZ: i knew that episode would come up. haha
DigitalSeahorse: o.O
betweenmyself: Watch the pilot of Babylon Five, then watch episode one where 60% of the characters are replaced with very similar, yet technically different characters
Arclight_Dynamo: "...why is there a B-plot about this alien building a motorcycle?"
Orlantia: Season 1 of TNG is rough
Fruan: Farscape is the same way. Absolutely fantastic show, impossible to introduce people to.
Master_Gunner: Wiggins Chat has being doing a TNG rewatch. Season 1 is... rough.
saucemaster5000: I'm kinda surprised Strange new worlds has been straight bangers
spawnofhastur: At least Bojack Horseman got good after 5 episodes
Master_Gunner: Moopsy!
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: DS9 starts pretty strong
princess_intell: New Who arguably took about 3 seasons
Camthelion: @Master_Gunner havent seen it recently it really is.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Yeah, the first about 10-12 episodes of Welcome to Nightvale are essential context but boy
Lord_Hosk: I recently watched the entirety of Star Trek the original series and woooooh boy... it doesn't hold up. It has A LOT of junk.
Arclight_Dynamo: I'm going to be watching the most recent episode right after this stream.
josh___something: It's great, despite knowing 0 star trek
Thefluffiestguineapig: They are definitely from early podcasting

Fruan: s4e1 of Lower Decks is so fantastically stupid. I love it so much.
DrLigmaPhD: make our ship go
Arclight_Dynamo: Armus.
Darth_Litigious: Armas
Vargen_HK: Lower Decks is Red Dwarf good.
Thefluffiestguineapig: It's a similar principle to one from a Talking Sim a few weeks ago where the take away was the idea of demonstrating love and knowledge through parody
DigitalSeahorse: Red Dwarf wins
Vargen_HK: Not just funny and good scifi, but often funny because it's good scifi
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: today's episode let a kzin crewmember be on the away team to a ringworld so I'm glad someone over there's on my side
planeswalkagogo: Lower Decks even did a CROSSOVER with Strange New Worlds
Thefluffiestguineapig: Armas the disquieting oil pit
Arclight_Dynamo: I love that they got Jeffrey Combs to voice a [redacted].
Thefluffiestguineapig: Right
DrakoniteDev: @planeswalkagogo so good
Arclight_Dynamo: But, yeah, Lower Decks was my favourite trek since DS9... until Strange New Worlds came out, which I like even better.
spawnofhastur: Dragon Ball Z Abridged for example, which dropped new stuff recently!
loufghyslaufey: That was me when one time, I tried to show someone an episode of cH to a contextually distinguished acquaintance, the Overwatch one. And they didn't understand after Cameron allegedly passed out dazed over grinding hours of Overwatch & Paul is just standing right next to him with the POTG track on playback for the bit.
DigitalSeahorse: xD
drewm1022: Until Strange New Worlds I would have said that The Orville was the best Star Trek show of the present.
Thefluffiestguineapig: It is the same thing as the head desk that happened when JJ Abrams came out and said he didn't want to make a Star Trek movie but made one
saucemaster5000: I haven't watched lower decks but the Strange New World Crossover ensured I'ma watch it next
planeswalkagogo: and Star Trek Prodigy is decent, too
Arclight_Dynamo: "I had her cleaning all the jizz out of the holodeck cum filters!"
loufghyslaufey: They played Overwatch too then, I remembered.
betweenmyself: Just waiting for someone to chime in with “Naruto doesn’t really hit it’s stride until episode 425, but you HAVE to watch everything that comes before it”
jessicaengle: Hi chat. Where's the commode?
princess_intell: Well Naruto doesn't hit its stride until....
Orlantia: Wolf 359
spawnofhastur: Naruto? Isn't that Boruto's dad?
Arclight_Dynamo: I think that was a Nebula0class ship, not a California-class.
Master_Gunner: I don't think it was, but there were a couple very similar ones in there
Arclight_Dynamo: They look similar.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @betweenmyself *glasses pushed into face so hard it creates a depression* you know the original Naruto run is essential to understanding any of Shippuden
drewm1022: Huh. I wonder if the Wolf system in Starfield is a reference. Probably.
princess_intell: Im so happy moffat got to do a soft reboot of new who
Thefluffiestguineapig: @drewm1022 Chances are high
DigitalSeahorse: The Borg made of all sprus
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: Wolf 359 is actually just a real star in real life
Arclight_Dynamo: ^
princess_intell: His style is a much easier sell than RTD for most people
Thefluffiestguineapig: There are many production things that became iconic that were just random nonsense
drewm1022: Oh. Well then. :D
fastlane250: Hearing the name Ertl mentioned outside the context of farm toys is always startling to me
Arclight_Dynamo: There's a great cetacean gag in an episode from this season. No spoilers.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa And is also an amazing finished early fiction podcast
princess_intell: Cam owns a star trek book? NERD.
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: it's in case the Star Trek 4 probe shows back up again!
spawnofhastur: I want there to be a war between the cetaceans and the cephalopods
Arclight_Dynamo: I do wish Lower Decks were a little less fan-wanky. But I get it.
Jorsh029: I can wholeheartedly recommend the entirety of Strange New Worlds for anyone with a passing interest of wanting to get into Star Trek. I'm utterly impressed with how well they captured the nearly 60-year spirit of the show lrrSHINE
Thefluffiestguineapig: @princess_intell If it's discovered he owns more than one he gets upgraded to dork
Darth_Litigious: That's Shax the Bajoran security officer
Master_Gunner: Aha, Cheyenne class was the wrecked ship with marker nacelles.
Raincoast_Bear: Star Trek 4 probe shows up in Lower Decks Season 4 opening credits!
saucemaster5000: yeah I am at the point that Strange New Worlds might actually be the best star trek show, But I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.
DigitalSeahorse: xD
Arclight_Dynamo: I do appreciate they decided "Let's take all the stupidest, silliest stuff from Trek and use it." Spock 2 is in the dang show!
DigitalSeahorse: PrideLaugh
Thefluffiestguineapig: For all that Prodigy was designed to get new people into the show it really didn't work and Lower Decks was designed to get a different audience neither worked nearly as well as SNW
princess_intell: @thefluffiestguineapig that sounds like something someone who owns a star trek book would say
Arclight_Dynamo: I think also that Lower Decks is the first time poutine showed up in Trek. Twice in the first season.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @princess_intell Hey, I am the owner of a Next Gen communicator tattoo, I am a three pip dork
princess_intell: @thefluffiestguineapig NERD
spawnofhastur: i too am fueled by whisky
DigitalSeahorse: woops
Raincoast_Bear: And, Lower Decks is animated here in Vancouver!
niccus: that can work maybe once
TheAinMAP: RPGFireball lrrSPOOP
Fruan: Intimidate the fires and make them feel inadequate
brainbosh: I mean Back burns work
DigitalSeahorse: a strong birthday cake blower
Nigouki: physically disconnect the flame front from the fuel
spawnofhastur: Reminds me of the story of Soviet soldiers who kept getting drunk in a dry operation. They'd replaced the radiator fluid in their APC or some shit with alcohol.
Raincoast_Bear: If you burn up all the fuel, the fire goes out.
princess_intell: Make a wish kids!
betweenmyself: Spray it with fire to deprive the fire of oxygen!
saucemaster5000: Recently saw Sorcerer since William Friedkan died. Such a good movie folks have completely forgotten
brainbosh: Why not do the russian method lol
DrakoniteDev: hellfighters
brainbosh: Just nuke it
princess_intell: @betweenmyself Sergeant, the fire has made more fire
niccus: huh, apparently netflix is working on a remake
DigitalSeahorse: pew pew off your fingers expired
betweenmyself: @princess_intell *cigar falls out of mouth* My god!
ContingentCat: oh noooo
Thefluffiestguineapig: OH NOOOOO
Thefluffiestguineapig: NOOOOOOO
ContingentCat: Nooooooooo
DigitalSeahorse: voxlunCarp
Thefluffiestguineapig: NOOOOOOOOOO
MistahFixIt: Dynamite 'sweats'
spawnofhastur: Nitroglycerin soaked sawdust
Arclight_Dynamo: Dynamite is nitroglycerine stabilized with diatomaceous earth, or other similar substances.
Nigouki: nitroglycerin in a very fine clay?
DigitalSeahorse: wooo
Thefluffiestguineapig: Nitroglycerin is the prototypical maximum instability compound

MistahFixIt: extremely porous, inert and lightweight
spawnofhastur: Nitrocellulose is neat too.
niccus: diatomaceous earth is a substance of pure surface area
DigitalSeahorse: diatmaceous earth is so awesome, it kills tiny bugs too
brainbosh: SOORY
princess_intell: You have a bomb
goombalax: Missed opportunity to call it "Nobelite", guess there will never be anything named after him
brainbosh: sammit caps
fastlane250: lrrCOW hazard
HasturTheYellow: Just throw another, more juicy, stick of dynamite at the crate
Camthelion: my dad worked for nasa and one time found a shed that was full of dynamite that was leaking.
Thefluffiestguineapig: This is one of the reasons that a lot of bomb disposal people hate dynamite
HasturTheYellow: From a very far distance, behind some shielding
DigitalSeahorse: food grade diatomaceous earth is put in grain silos
princess_intell: You leave and you tell everyone else to stay away, and you hope they listen
brainbosh: Is it safer to nuke an oil fire lol
Arclight_Dynamo: I bet they don't even make dynamite anymore. No need.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Any dynamite without intense paperwork is basically a bad day
betweenmyself: “It’s fine. I left a series of crude pictograms of bad things happening to warn off the next tenants.”
MistahFixIt: The thing about diatomaceous earth is, at the microscopic level, its basically thousands of tiny razorblades, which cut into the carapaces of bugs and effectively bleeds them to death
Raincoast_Bear: Now I have Macross Dynamite7 song Dynamite in my head.
spawnofhastur: Didn't the US deparment of weather or whatever it's called have to make a pamphlet explaining that no, you can't use nuclear bombs on hurricanes?
princess_intell: Or a weird song about glowing cats
shurtal: a half stick of dynamite was discovered at my work. We were told "don't go over there for the next hour or so" and after like 45 minutes, a guy showed up with a bucked of diesel fuel, went into the shed the stick was, and walked out about 5 minutes later, told us "you're all good" and walked off
Thefluffiestguineapig: @betweenmyself You joke but literally there is a group of linguists trying to figure out how to transmit knowlege about what is dangerous (like nuclear waste) to a civilization that has a language that we cannot even imagine
Thefluffiestguineapig: It's a real weird field of study
goombalax: @shurtal at lest he maintained the timeframe
princess_intell: That's why a guy made a song about glowing cats. Apparently they made real cats that change color?
betweenmyself: @thefluffiestguineapig i was referencing that precise thing, yes
spawnofhastur: @princess_intell didn't they genetically modify the glow-in-the-dark stuff into 'em?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @betweenmyself Ah, sorry, I was overly literal again
shurtal: @goombalax he said he was with the ATF, which if true, taht was the fastest government job i've ever been a part of
HasturTheYellow: Fortunately hot water and some gentle persuasion can get the droopiest of spears back into their correct, turgid, postition
goombalax: Bendy spears > Broken Spears
princess_intell: @spawnofhastur something like that. I think the idea is a little dumb, but I'm also not an expert.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur The list of things that have had the jellyfish glow in the dark gene spliced into them is disquietingly long
DigitalSeahorse: ew
shurtal: Flavor
princess_intell: I have learned so much about historical weaponry this evening, this is fascinating
Raincoast_Bear: That's why we wargamers often replace spears with piano wire.
shurtal: that's the real Spice
Thefluffiestguineapig: @goombalax But is bendy spoons>bendy spears or bendy spears>than bendy spoons
DrakoniteDev: @Thefluffiestguineapig my favorite part is the end result is the best solution is to bury it deep and leave it completely unmarked
kali_dehumanization: What we building
Rhynerd: Hello! I see I haven’t completely missed the Cam + Alex hobby night
DigitalSeahorse: common wire
princess_intell: Still going for an hour
Arclight_Dynamo: Patrick Stewart goes into battle holding a pug.
spawnofhastur: guys can i sell you a really high output nuclear generator? unfortunately harnessing it isn't particularly efficient and you can only use it on average 12 hours a day.
kali_dehumanization: Alex what glue is that with the purple label
Thefluffiestguineapig: @DrakoniteDev The idea they think if you hide it well enough no one/nothing/no future civilization will find it is basically just the kick the can down the road with a long walk of justification
Rhynerd: I just got back from playing the Infinity tabletop game.
betweenmyself: @thefluffiestguineapig all good.
Bugberry: I watched it right after finishing the books so I didn't see it favorably.
itsaysTRUENO: Dune is David Lynch retelling his own life, its good
princess_intell: I didn't read the book, but I liked part 1 a whole lot
goombalax: I love those articles for the new dune that talk about them "saving the galaxy"
Master_Gunner: Joderowski's Dune not being made is the best thing to happen to Sci-Fi cinema
Master_Gunner: because all we got out of it
Nigouki: concept/pre-production is often quite different from final products
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Arclight_Dynamo Is this a reference or just aspirational? And if it's the second one I would love him and Ian McKellan to just go into battle armed with their adorable friendship
Bugberry: I hope some day we get a live-action depiction of God Emperor Leto
TehAmelie: was it the real Dune movie or Joderowski's that Salvador Dali walked away from cause he didn't get a giraffe on fire?
DrakoniteDev: @Thefluffiestguineapig Well, it is more that anything we can come up with to try to scare people away ends up being more likely to attract attention. Just think of how markings of plague on pyramids is ignored.
Arclight_Dynamo: @Thefluffiestguineapig It literally happens in Lynch's Dune.
kali_dehumanization: lrrBEEJ lrrBEEJ lrrBEEJ lrrBEEJ
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Nigouki Looking at the documentation from the beta of HL2 is wild
DigitalSeahorse: voxlunBabhed
goombalax: get vaccinated folks
asddsa28: get your shots
itsaysTRUENO: David Lynch hired the wrong Patrick Stewart. He wanted a different guy lol
Raincoast_Bear: Giger designed a very weird bar. One built in Switzerland, another in Japan.
spawnofhastur: I've had influenza A that shit sucks
NervousHair: and kurt vonnegut tripped on a doorstep
Rhynerd: That sucks for both of them
Thefluffiestguineapig: Flu vaccines are free most pharmacies
DigitalSeahorse: get boosted
TheNerdWonder: houdini died cause a kid punched him in the gut
Fruan: I'm starting to think the human body is maybe not a very well engineered machine!
betweenmyself: And Bob Marley died of a melanoma under his toenail
NervousHair: @thenerdwonder didnt help that he was punched hundreds of times before that
goombalax: the more complex, the easier to break @Fruan
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Fruan No! Humans are of course the pinnacle in every way! And the Earth must therefore be the center of the universe
princess_intell: "why am I drinking in a chair instead of a scale recreation of a spleen?"
goombalax: Alien ate people? Spoilers?!

1 raiders from lord_kuro_1992 have joined!
betweenmyself: Nope, just intended to be a ball of cables that sits to the side of the finished model… For verisimilitude.
Thefluffiestguineapig: There is a book I love which is called "Staring" that analyzes why certain design decisions make people feel unwelcome
spawnofhastur: I almost died from cellulitis once. I can't say I recommend it.
Thefluffiestguineapig: It is called "Staring: How we Look"
DrakoniteDev: It was Streptococcus pyogenes, which originally they falsely thought was pneumonia.
DigitalSeahorse: Thefluffiestguineapig like the new design of
Thefluffiestguineapig: I almost died of blood loss from a long term ulcer
Nigouki: the runners in the luna gans box should be a combination of old Nitto runners and newer Wave ones
NervousHair: peter lynch?
goombalax: Brad Dourif
saucemaster5000: Brad dourif
Morrigan9: brad duruf
NervousHair: yeaaah
itsaysTRUENO: "its is by will alone i set my mind in motion" *drinks mind control potion*
spawnofhastur: Wasn't Piter de Vries specifically named after a literary critic that had said mean things about Frank Herbert once?
Arclight_Dynamo: Brad Dourif was the best part of Star Trek Voyager, too.
saucemaster5000: it's like making a lovecraft movie without jeffrey combs
TheWanderingNomad: I also loved Dourif on Deadwood
Thefluffiestguineapig: @DigitalSeahorse Or literally sidewalks. Like the fact things that are supposed to make them accessible are actually often very bad feeling
Thefluffiestguineapig: He is a treasure

Arclight_Dynamo: it's like how Tom Cruise is the best at being filmed running. Some people have weird talents.
princess_intell: What a workmanlike acting gig
betweenmyself: What are the odds he’s a a method actor and just constantly screams and shakes while on set to make sure he’s in the right mindset?
princess_intell: "call time is 8, here's the line, do the thing"
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Arclight_Dynamo Or Brad Pitt being weirdly good at being filmed eating
Arclight_Dynamo: @Thefluffiestguineapig Huuuh...
SymphonicLolita: or like casting Doug Jones to be a weird monster thing
Camthelion: @SymphonicLolita thank you, i was wracking my brain trying to remember his name
Nigouki: suit actors
Arclight_Dynamo: Leland Orser has been in several episodes of Star Trek, too, per iMDB. :p
Thefluffiestguineapig: @SymphonicLolita "Does it have non human anatomy? He can do it"
itsaysTRUENO: the behind the scenes for Lynch's dune is so brutal. everyone low-key making fun of Herbert's weird nerd book
saucemaster5000: yeah speaking of jeffrey combs being in every lovecraft movie, how many star trek races was he?
Bugberry: Doug Jones is the legend at being in full costume.
brainbosh: Listening to the Delta Flyer podcst almost half of the time they had an alien in makeup it was someone from a previous series
princess_intell: I wonder if Doug Jones ever gets recognized at the grocery store
Camthelion: @brainbosh the what podcast?? :O
DigitalSeahorse: xD
Thefluffiestguineapig: The amount of time Doug Jones has spent getting into and out of make up is probably an entire lifetime for someone else
Arclight_Dynamo: @saucemaster5000 I can think of four roles off the top of my head.
Bugberry: Dee Bradley Baker is also really good at voicing animals, in addition to voicing every member of the Bad Batch.
DigitalSeahorse: grawr
NervousHair: and then you have doug jones
princess_intell: His name is Doug Jones, he sounds like "some guy"
Master_Gunner: Laura Dern going "pew pew pew"
Raincoast_Bear: Weird that Shape of Water won an Oscar, but Doug Jones wasn't nominated for playing the creature.
DigitalSeahorse: bwaa
DigitalSeahorse: hehe
saucemaster5000: I like the clip of Ewan McGregor not believing the next movie is to be called attack of the clones and losing his shit
Thefluffiestguineapig: I love people who are thrilled to be working on things
NervousHair: @princess_intell doug jones is a loveable lanky weirdo covered in latex
spawnofhastur: Watching people gush about things they like is fun.
Bugberry: @Thefluffiestguineapig reminds me how basically everyone from Scott PIlgrim are returning for the animated series.
Thefluffiestguineapig: I also love the behind the scenes of Sir Christopher Lee being psyched to be on the LotR set and the other actors describing how into it he was
Raincoast_Bear: @Bugberry Like Michael Cera has something better to do?
Bugberry: @Raincoast_Bear he was in Barbie.
princess_intell: Christopher Lee was a tolkein nerd before they were called "tolkein nerds"
Bugberry: @Raincoast_Bear he's doing something right
itsaysTRUENO: superman mustache removal
TheNerdWonder: yes
brainbosh: CG off a mustach
DigitalSeahorse: or wear bald caps for the movie
spawnofhastur: Didn't Ian McKellan break down in tears on the LotR set because so much of it was green screen and that's not why he became an actor?
NervousHair: also the whole thing about the toilet being covered in chocolate
Morrigan9: yes, mission impossible
Lord_Hosk: Mission impossible
Serpens77: for Mission Impossible
saucemaster5000: cavill needed the stache for mission impossible yeah
Sorator13: They CGI'd it, yeah, it was weird
Phailhammer: @spawnofhastur I think it was the Hobbit, but yeah.
saucemaster5000: Yeah that was Skyfall
SnackPak_: oofa
Thefluffiestguineapig: Which is a stupid contract caveat
Bugberry: I recall John Krazinski had a hair cut for Leatherheads and the Office had to make a joke explaining his change in hair.
NervousHair: didnt they have to cg the pubic hair off sigourny weaver?
Arclight_Dynamo: Spectre?
saucemaster5000: Spectre
gualdhar: Christophe Waltz
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Phailhammer Yeah, he talked later about how different it was than the LotR because they did everything possible practical in the original ones
DigitalSeahorse: minute my newt damage
TehAmelie: funny story, i've only watched Trainspotting once in like 1999. didn't think about it once in maybe 10 years, and then without any context i saw the trailer that starts with a shot of a train and a voice going "choose life", and i immediately thought "Trainspotting 2? what?"
saucemaster5000: (that movie kinda sucks yeah)
DigitalSeahorse: he got better!
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: god, Spectre was a mess of a movie
DigitalSeahorse: xD
Thefluffiestguineapig: And it was for the mandatory studio reshoots that Henry Cavil had the CGI'ed out mustache
Thefluffiestguineapig: It was one of the things that led to the myth of the Snyder cut
DrakoniteDev: Didn't it get stopped part way?
LostThePirate: XD
spawnofhastur: That much booze consumed that his brain is just immune
rosesmcgee: Every neuron is mapped to violence
Thefluffiestguineapig: Because that was part of the massive things that people were up in arms about
betweenmyself: Oh yeah, final season of Archer os currently running.
Rhynerd: @rosesmcgee and unfortunately the neurons destroyed were for a very specific type of weapon that wasn’t used at all.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa And not even a fun mess
princess_intell: Archer is ending?
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: the wildest part about Spectre was that Skyfall's *whole thing* was about examining his past and childhood, and then the next movie is just all "oh yeah he had a secret brother"
Raincoast_Bear: He was monologuing.
Arclight_Dynamo: "I personally dissolved a man in acrid this morning!"
Arclight_Dynamo: 8acid
TheNerdWonder: Archer is still going on?
Thefluffiestguineapig: Is do what is necessary being kind?
betweenmyself: @princess_intell they’re marketing it as the final season, but who knows these days
oneupthextraman: I liked dalton
Raincoast_Bear: New season of Archer coming,
princess_intell: Is it any good?
Raincoast_Bear: Judi Dench?
Thefluffiestguineapig: And respecting women as humans?
saucemaster5000: hot priest from fleabag
Rhynerd: Oh, that was also Spectre then
Thefluffiestguineapig: Righ!!
niccus: hot priest, hot priest coming through
princess_intell: I wish I could see him as Hamlet SO BAD
DrakoniteDev: fair description
Thefluffiestguineapig: The prototypical English beuraucrat
princess_intell: Got them sued too
Lord_Hosk: He was John Adam's son in law in the HBO show John Adams, and John Adams HATED him and would not let him get a job in the US government.
DigitalSeahorse: Enola Holmes digita435LOVE
Thefluffiestguineapig: He plays that so well
josh___something: Isn't "Hot Priest" not named theoughout that
DigitalSeahorse: not so far
Meyari: Andrew Scott?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @princess_intell What got who sued?
itsaysTRUENO: discombobulate
Lysander_salamander: It's great that all of Sherlock Holmes has finally gone into public domain
josh___something: Yeah, Andrew Scott.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Lord_Hosk Really??? That show was awesome and I did not make that link
saucemaster5000: I thought enola holmes was charming and Cavill as sherlock wass pretty good casting
DigitalSeahorse: yup, second movie
princess_intell: Enola homes got the studio sued for copyright infringement by the Arthur Conan Doyle estate
Arclight_Dynamo: I've seen the first one, and I enjoyed it.
Raincoast_Bear: Three movie so far?
Arclight_Dynamo: Three.
TheMerricat: Third
Rhynerd: Which Poirot films are those?
saucemaster5000: third one just came out yeah
spawnofhastur: I really want to see a B movie called Wifewolf.
corefluxx: Third one on the way
TheNerdWonder: they're perfectly enjoyable. Apparently they change a crapton from the books
DigitalSeahorse: princess_intell :O
Toxxick: A haunting in venice
Rhynerd: I haven’t seen the latest Death On the Nile yes.
DrakoniteDev: Third one next month I think
Lysander_salamander: I want to watch those movies, but it feels a little weird to see a Poirot without David Suchet
Raincoast_Bear: OCD
TheMerricat: The new one is just out or is coming up it's being advertised heavily and reddit in the reviews are already out
Rhynerd: They’re making a Haunting in Venice
corefluxx: He has the little grey cells
NervousHair: being fancy and well connected
Arclight_Dynamo: His gimmick is extreme Belgianness.
spawnofhastur: His gimmick is speaking English badly and that he can use his brain better than Sherlock
princess_intell: Apparently Sherlock Holmes is always a jerk in media because the stories where he's a good person are still technically under copyright
Thefluffiestguineapig: @saucemaster5000 Agreed, I think it was very much the fun side of the original stories that got lost in a lot of adaptations. The fact Cavil was quietly figuring things out was also a thing that Holmes would do people tend to not maximize
saucemaster5000: Agatha Christie HATED poirot funnily enough
Thefluffiestguineapig: Yeah
Rhynerd: Polite Belgian with an eye for detail.
NervousHair: also good with a penknife and a mango
Lysander_salamander: He does the "makes people underestimate him by being very Belgian"
Thefluffiestguineapig: Poirot, Holmes and even Miss Marple are really, really austistic coded
spawnofhastur: Has anyone done a Nero Wolfe adapatation?
Thefluffiestguineapig: Poirot is also possibly deep in the closet
Rhynerd: The last Nero Wolfe adapation was in the early 2000/
DrakoniteDev: I look forward to seeing the new Poirot movie
saucemaster5000: I still weirdly found the Robert Downey Jr. Portrayal to be the most book accurate sherlock
Thefluffiestguineapig: In one of the last Poirot stories Christie added a female love interest just to shut people up
spawnofhastur: Poirot has a gag based on Moriarity in which he shaves his moustache and pretends to be his non-existant, even smarter older brother.
princess_intell: Am I the only person who still likes BBC sherlock

bigpearlentertainment: wheelerOok wheelerOok wheelerOok wheelerOok wheelerOok wheelerOok
Thefluffiestguineapig: @saucemaster5000 In the movies for sure. Jeremy Brett's BBC one is also very good. The fact people disliked that version shows that for a lot of people the stories are no longer what is wanted out of a Holmes interpretation
corefluxx: David Suchet was amazing as Poirot, but Branagh also did a very good job... It is like getting to learn about and fall in love with the character all over again
Thefluffiestguineapig: Welcome raiders!
saucemaster5000: @Thefluffiestguineapig I mean, what they want is Basil Rathbone. And I like that sherlock, but it's very sanitized
spawnofhastur: Flagellants
TehAmelie: i wonder if confusing Moriarity and Mycroft is a more or less common mistake than calling Saruman Sauruman
DigitalSeahorse: bonk
Phailhammer: *bonk*
Rhynerd: Not wrong
DigitalSeahorse: voxlunBabhed
Raincoast_Bear: Death on the Nile was alright. For the plot to work, you have to believe a man would not pick Gal Gadot over any other woman.
NervousHair: moaning with every strike
spawnofhastur: THAT REMINDS ME Alex have you played Blasphemous 2?
princess_intell: The only thing that really bugged me about DOTN was the wardrobe department
Rhynerd: Oh, love secret traitor geneseed chapters.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @saucemaster5000 Absolutely, I would love someone to do a brett esque interpretation in the modern era where there isn't bleach being poured all over the property
spawnofhastur: his name was literally Angron
yuan42: yup, they stuck nails into his head
MistahFixIt: Always Angry, All The Time
DigitalSeahorse: can confirm, the Marine I knew was angry a LOT
Rhynerd: “He can still fight. Give that man a legion!”
Phailhammer: "Just point him in the right direction and everything will be fine."
Thefluffiestguineapig: For me a lot of the modern Christie adaptations have the issue of wanting things to be on screen/be on screen exactly like they are in the books rather than recreating the feeling of reading htem
ContingentCat: phineas gage is really cool
Thefluffiestguineapig: His story is so weird
princess_intell: The time we accidently discovered that you don't need all of your brain to live
Master_Gunner: made him a right asshole, apparently, but otherwise fine.
NervousHair: "sneezed and a teacup of brain feel out"
ContingentCat: He lost "a teacup" of graymatter
Thefluffiestguineapig: He lived for YEARS
Raincoast_Bear: Pithing
mjiig: Very off topic, but the point at 3AM when the automatic theorem prover finally accepts your proof is a truly unique feeling
Thefluffiestguineapig: He walked back to his house and didn't realize the horror show of his head
spawnofhastur: Everyone's got a plan until they see the blue flash.
NervousHair: he saw god and god removed the bit that saw him
Thefluffiestguineapig: It was the thing that made them realize that part of the brain was responsible for shame and anger regulatio
Rhynerd: @nervoushair that’s a helluva line
lucha_libro: "Are we the baddies?"
HasturTheYellow: Is it a Skull, or is it an Eye?
Raincoast_Bear: It's axe! But it's made from skulls!
HasturTheYellow: How many pointy arrows are in there?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @NervousHair And they discovered that seeing God does what it said in the old testament/that one legend involving Zeus and a woman wanting to see his true form, it destroys you
lucha_libro: A skull eating a skull... eating a skull...
betweenmyself: I still prefer the story of Mike the Headless Chicken who lived for 18 months without a head and died by choking on the food that was being poured down his throat by his owner.
Morrigan9: these guys never want ponies or something
princess_intell: And not heresy
Thefluffiestguineapig: The reason he wasn't completely destroyed was it was brief
spawnofhastur: iirc the blue flash is cherenkov radiation occuring from neutrons moving faster than the speed of light in your eye jelly
DigitalSeahorse: eagles carrying skulls tattoo art
NervousHair: @thefluffiestguineapig and makes you smell burnt toast
spawnofhastur: Reminds me of the Weapons crapshots
lucha_libro: I bet H.R giger would have been big with the Adeptus mechanicus :P
DigitalSeahorse: eagle skeleton
Raincoast_Bear: Adeptus Artes Imperialis
Thefluffiestguineapig: @DigitalSeahorse Just Sailor Jerry. Honestly that might be an existing tattoo design or something very close to it
Rhynerd: Don’t forget the iron halo
NervousHair: and there is one priest mechanicus who is just SUPER STOKED to add skulls and eigles
Thefluffiestguineapig: Blowing out the back of my skull
MistahFixIt: "You're challenging my perception of what skulls and eagles can mean." [BLAM]
betweenmyself: We gotta fractalize these impaled skulls!
DigitalSeahorse: I guarantee it is cause both things are very very common tattoo includes
spawnofhastur: i think more things should have ducks as logos.
princess_intell: And the innovation is somehow also heresu
lucha_libro: these skulls don't conform with standard skull guidelines! HERESY!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @DigitalSeahorse And that seems like the kind of thing that enlisted people would want as a regiment symbol
NervousHair: what vintage is that sniffin glue?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @lucha_libro Isn't that just really aggressive phrenology
spawnofhastur: Ah, retrophrenology.
lucha_libro: XD
NervousHair: @thefluffiestguineapig reverse phrenology. let me get the little hammers
lucha_libro: So when citizens of the imperium die, and before they are turned into soylent green, are there just guys who show up and come grab the skull?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @NervousHair Might as well get the boards at the same time because we only try the hammers so we can check the box
spawnofhastur: Kinda reminds me of the survivorship bias thing in airplanes
Arclight_Dynamo: Take out every second gear.
DigitalSeahorse: IKEA mech
Thefluffiestguineapig: Um
spawnofhastur: "put armor on where there are bullet holes."
NervousHair: the driver is also disposable

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, PhorrestGaze! (Today's storm count: 141)
Lysander_salamander: just sort of crouched there
TheNerdWonder: on the ammo box, of course
Morrigan9: in soviet russia, floor is for everyone
Master_Gunner: germans are coming to the factory, don't need to drive much
spawnofhastur: Didn't you have to change gears in the T34 with a hammer?
NervousHair: and the british had tea making equipment
Phailhammer: "When the man in the tank dies, you get in and drive the tank!" Kappa
Thefluffiestguineapig: It seems like a similar principle to the in universe reason the TIE fighters have to wear respirators. It's because the fighters were made cheaper and life support was one of the casualties
MistahFixIt: "What the compartment's got four walls and a roof waddya want?"
Arclight_Dynamo: The internal kettle on British tanks was actually militarily necessary. The crews kept stopping and getting out to make tea, and were getting shot.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Arclight_Dynamo That is one of my favorite "Maximally British" facts
MistahFixIt: I dfigured they'd just bring their own kettles and rest them on the exposed exhaust piping
spawnofhastur: I've been looking into stuff like that in firearms design and turns out Colt just cut out a notch in the frame of the 1911 because it was a stress accumulation point.
spawnofhastur: and the fix was to just. remove it.
DigitalSeahorse: the kit is her boyfriend?
TehAmelie: remember how space marines in Starcraft are stated to have a life expectancy in the field of 20 seconds, with medic support? and they're basically wearing tanks. maybe should have gone for some more durable parts in that case
Thefluffiestguineapig: @MistahFixIt I don't know if there would be exposed exhaust piping stable enough in motion to do that and it would cool once stopped
Nigouki: beeeg boom
DigitalSeahorse: FatBoy?
Bugberry: tzarbomba?
Thefluffiestguineapig: Tsar Bomba?
spawnofhastur: Iirc the seismic wave it created was detectable the third way round
Lysander_salamander: dang
SnackPak_: lrrSPOOP
DigitalSeahorse: cute
Lysander_salamander: wild
Thefluffiestguineapig: Yuuuuuuup
MistahFixIt: free candy!
Thefluffiestguineapig: It really messed with seismic readings EVERYWHERE
Thefluffiestguineapig: Isn't that crater one of the places that has all the diamonds? Or is that just the tanguska crater
TehAmelie: i hear the Krakatoa explosion was audible after three turns around the earth but that's a bit of different scale. . .
MistahFixIt: "Slavpunk" lmao
spawnofhastur: Reminds me of how there was an issue in some Soviet tech where they needed to delay a signal by around 20 milliseconds. So they just added like 20 extra feet of wire.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Oh man
Thefluffiestguineapig: That's so weird
Thefluffiestguineapig: The cognitive dissonance of that image is wild
Master_Gunner: The soviets kept a *large* number of steam locomotives around, because they just work and can run on anything flammable.
spawnofhastur: We recently found the largest confirmed asteroid crater in the world!
MistahFixIt: @spawnofhastur That might just be the most Soviet thing I've ever heard
DigitalSeahorse: little wrench shapes
spawnofhastur: @MistahFixIt fixing the board is expensive. Copper wire is cheap.
rosesmcgee: One key is the ignition, the other key arms the bomb
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Master_Gunner Everything about Russian climate is already hard on everything so if it works keeping it around makes sense to me
Nigouki: that's where the plastic come it and it gets cut off
DigitalSeahorse: ah
DigitalSeahorse: digita435Octo
azureHaights: 👀
gawag_: its so russian slim pickens can see in the dark
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur Was this bigger than the one that is a good portion of the Gulf of Mexico?
spawnofhastur: "The Deniliquin structure, yet to be further tested by drilling, spans up to 520 kilometres in diameter."
DigitalSeahorse: and goldilocks was somehow still there!
Thefluffiestguineapig: Australia continues to have just wild stuff
Thefluffiestguineapig: Ah, so it's subterranean
spawnofhastur: As an Australian I am proud.
DigitalSeahorse: the bears don't like her now
Thefluffiestguineapig: That makes sense to me, I think I was confusing it with the largest visible from the surface ones
LordZarano: @spawnofhastur There's a financial exchange somewhere in america that does that with rolls of fibre optic cable. To ensure fairness between remote traders
quillilian: @spawnofhastur There's a US stock exchange (IEX) that implements a delay using a massive coil of fiber optic cable
DigitalSeahorse: voxlunNut voxlunNut
Arclight_Dynamo: IIRC, modern US warheads are sub-megaton, since they're more accurate.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur Honestly this and the cave paintings which are revolutionizing Australian paleotology are rad
LordZarano: @quillilian High five!
kenny_roberts84: PFFT instructions.....who needs them
quillilian: @LordZarano Five high!
spawnofhastur: I've got a degree in anthropology here in Australia. My old lecturer found the (former) oldest outside of africa example of cave paintings @Thefluffiestguineapig
MistahFixIt: Hah I get that joke
Arclight_Dynamo: Mythbusters tried to test that. Twice.
MistahFixIt: It was one of mythbusters very first ever episodes iirc
Thefluffiestguineapig: @kenny_roberts84 My dad had a shirt that was about how real men don't need instructions from some Goofy illustrations
Thefluffiestguineapig: I want that shirt again
kenny_roberts84: LOL nice
Raincoast_Bear: JADO car Covered thoroughly on Mythbusters.
Raincoast_Bear: JATO
DrakoniteDev: It is a myth, but a fun one
MistahFixIt: JATO = Jet-Assisted Take-Off Module?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur That's amazing!!! I wonder if they are involved with the current analysis of the viability of using the illustrations of ice age marsupials to figure out the animals
Thefluffiestguineapig: Is that one of the cars that just vaporized on impact?
asthanius: And also it’s vertical
spawnofhastur: @Thefluffiestguineapig Bryce does a lot of work in the Northern territory and PNG - iirc he's seen cave paintings of what we believe to be geryornis.
Thefluffiestguineapig: The one they put on a track with a wall at the end to stop it? Since it is basically an automobile augmented missile?
DeM0nFiRe: nothing personell kid *teleports behind you*
azureHaights: pfffffVOOM
ghyllnox: Sshhhhhh FEW (gone)
TehAmelie: yesterday i saw a video of a high speed train passing by a regular one and it made me jump back even though it was several hundred meters away from the camera
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur That's so cool!!!!!!!!
neisan2112: I miss doing model rocket stuff
blip2004: this is why mythbusters was so good. They used rocket sleds to disintegrate lots of stuff
LordZarano: Rockets go supersonic, straight up, within like 2-3 minutes
Sorator13: My brother had a model rocket go off in his pocket on his birthday once., That was Not Pleasant.
Thefluffiestguineapig: One of the most disorienting demonstrations of the dopplar effect
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Sorator13 O.o
LordZarano: *Orbital rockets
brainbosh: "Yeah, well she's my myth!"
ghyllnox: I miss doing rocketry at summer camp in a small room with closed, teeny high-up windows with 10-12 5th graders using 2-part glue
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: oh yeah, the episode where the car just kind of turns into a cloud of paint
fastlane250: reminds me of how they strapped a jet to a Budd RDC railcar
DigitalSeahorse: lrrHAM ster
Thefluffiestguineapig: The one episode of Feed Dump (which was on the Desert Bus set with Johnny and Kate and Alex) had the rocket powered bicycle which also was just bonkers
DrakoniteDev: Rocket cars have their own category for land speed records
betweenmyself: Really puts Hamtaro into perspective riffYeti
Thefluffiestguineapig: @ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa Or the biggest explosion by their reckoning which was the cement truck where even the explosives officer who would work with them was nervouse about?
SymphonicLolita: additionally: sheep spend their entire lives trying to find a way to kill themselves
47 raiders from El_Funko have joined!
asddsa28: my hamster did die horribly i felt so bad
saucemaster5000: My hamster kept rolling their ball down the stairs.

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, wikisome! (Today's storm count: 142)
LordZarano: Both Hammond and the Thrust SSC land speed record car were jet powered, not rockets
spawnofhastur: It is almost impossible to get a hamster drunk. If you give a hamster a choice between water and everclear they will take the everclear.
El_Funko: elfunkDab elfunkDab elfunkDab
Phailhammer: elfunkPopcorn elfunkPopcorn elfunkPopcorn elfunkPopcorn
Thefluffiestguineapig: @SymphonicLolita Animals can get very creative about maiming themselves. Sheep are especially good at it
DigitalSeahorse: aww
Thefluffiestguineapig: Welcome raiders!!!!
betweenmyself: So Hamsters are like TNT?
El_Funko: Evening folks, hope the hobby is going well
Arclight_Dynamo: What *is* the critical mass for ham?
spawnofhastur: Apparently the only way to get a hamster actively drunk is to inject alcohol into their bloodstream.
DigitalSeahorse: PrideLaugh
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: I'll keep that in mind in case I never need to get a hamster drunk
Thefluffiestguineapig: @spawnofhastur Their systems are incredibly efficient weirdly
saucemaster5000: @spawnofhastur how do you know this
DigitalSeahorse: now picturing exploding hamsters
Thefluffiestguineapig: @DigitalSeahorse This is basically one step away from the Astro Mouse which was taxidermied after going to space
spawnofhastur: Turns out that hamsters bury rye seeds and the like and they ferment over time so they've evolved an incredibly efficient way to process alcohol.
saucemaster5000: lmao, this is the best fact I've gotten this week
El_Funko: How are the Phobos coming along Cam?
Thefluffiestguineapig: This has been a good stream for extremely good facts from disparate areas
TheNextPaige: Something similar to that happened in Houston
fastlane250: CSB?
TheNerdWonder: they have the best videos
El_Funko: Cheers Paul
TehAmelie: clearly acid is the way to go if you wanna give a hamster a good time. they are very sensitive to LSD compared to humans
froggysparkles: this stream is so chill
NotCainNorAbel: I can never make it fully make it through one of those videos
fastlane250: the CSB channel is great stuff
LordZarano: Thoses are SO GOOD
Thefluffiestguineapig: The differences in species sensitivies to different intoxicants is very wild
Sorator13: I have absolutely watched some of those, yes
spawnofhastur: Yeah apparently if your hamster is going into hibernation because it's too cold you can give it a shot of whisky and it'll perk right up
DigitalSeahorse: hotwork and popcorn sediment come to mind
Thefluffiestguineapig: @froggysparkles The chillest discussions of massive weapons and scary nuclear things
NervousHair: the opossite of "well theres your problem"
fastlane250: reminded of how a bunch of people stood in a cloud of gas at a filling station which later exploded, and they somehow lived.
TheNerdWonder: it's kinda depressing how often the accident is "management didn't give a shit about safety"
spawnofhastur: my favourite things that you wouldn't expect to explode but do: flour mills
blip2004: or because they wanted a smoke break
Arclight_Dynamo: "Regulations are written in blood."
Thefluffiestguineapig: The popcorn polymer seems similar to the Molasses incident in Boston
Thefluffiestguineapig: Where the initial description seems funny and then you realize how horrific it is
LoadingReadyRun: I saw a photo set of the effect of different dugs on spider webs. Caffeine really messes them up
DigitalSeahorse: voxlunFoam
Thefluffiestguineapig: OH NO
ghyllnox: My dad, a safety officer in his company, was on-site this week. His coworker wanted him to go close the door that turned the machine back on while he was inside so he could test something without getting the little battery power supply about 12 feet down
ghyllnox: My dad just had to give him a particular look and he knew what he'd done wrong
fastlane250: I've been pronouncing "kludge" wrong?!
Arclight_Dynamo: @fastlane250 Both pronunciations are acceptable.
Fruan: @fastlane250 I also have been pronouncing it with a hard D
Thefluffiestguineapig: @ghyllnox Your dad must have the most withering collection of varied disapproving looks
Fruan: @Fruan Wait... wait... I should have worded that differently.
spawnofhastur: There was an issue with the L96A1 where the people they contracted out to make it cut the locking lugs at a 45 degree angle. Turns out that that... doesn't contain the bolt thrust from a bullet cartridge.
DigitalSeahorse: reminding me of the Paper Burster I used at The Sun Times way back
fastlane250: @Arclight_Dynamo I've been pronouncing "kludge" only one way instead of both?!
Phailhammer: @fastlane250 Maybe it's like "decal" and varies depending on where you are; I pronounce it differently as well.

Arclight_Dynamo: @fastlane250 There you go. :D
Fruan: I always assumed it rhymed with grudge
froggysparkles: what a rabithole and I am HERE for it
betweenmyself: @phailhammer I pronounce it “sticker” riffYeti
DigitalSeahorse: like a giant typewriter
spawnofhastur: but yeah it turns out bored workers cutting corners is almost uniformly bad. except perhaps in guitar manufacturing.
DrakoniteDev: I know I want a curta
Thefluffiestguineapig: @froggysparkles Subtitle for TTSF: what a rabbit hole and we are on this ride
asddsa28: what
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah. Adobe Pagemaker, but hardware.
asddsa28: omg yess
DigitalSeahorse: neat
NervousHair: just had a pool of vaporising hot lead near the keyboard
DigitalSeahorse: linotype machine
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Arclight_Dynamo And also that works without needing constant stupid updates
spawnofhastur: Oh man I wish Graham was here since we're talking about fonts.
SnackPak_: neat
Arclight_Dynamo: @Thefluffiestguineapig Funny story... :p
TheNerdWonder: I can spell, honestly...
NervousHair: that is so good
NotCainNorAbel: That's fascinating
SnackPak_: sergeJustRight
ContingentCat: that's so cool
DigitalSeahorse: fascinating
froggysparkles: My ADHD fact hungry brain GOGGLED that up
froggysparkles: Gobbled*
spawnofhastur: Graham's enthusiasm for graphic design is infectious.
TheNerdWonder: the industrial machines of old are fascinating
betweenmyself: The discussion of scan lines and “racing the beam” as it has been called is really interesting
spawnofhastur: ah yeah, like writing an essay. 90% of it is doing the research and then there's "actually writing the damn essay".
Snowcookies: ty for the stream
Alger_Waterlow: Bye
ContingentCat: Thanks Cam, Alex, and Paul this has been really nice
spawnofhastur: very much enjoyed going down many rabbitholes. warrens?
Lysander_salamander: have a good evening! Thanks for the crafts and commentary!
niccus: they're assembling the demon corelet
LostThePirate: Thanks for the stream!
fastlane250: It's always great to listen to Alex just go off on some topic
LaconicLad: Very informative. Good show.
JonnyGlitched: Hello to my two favorite people in that room! (I know Paul is in a different room now)
ReachW: Paul's an Eva?
TheNerdWonder: I would not put it past the LRR crafters to magic up a mock demon core
DigitalSeahorse: That is why he's Paul.
NervousHair: you hear sirens in the distance and singing
ContingentCat: and none of us want to see Paul in berserk mode
JonnyGlitched: I'm always just in time for the end
Rhynerd: I went to Lancer and figured that Paul would immediately unshackle
Snowcookies: Give money to LRR so we don't engage Paul's berserk mode
Rhynerd: Which I suppose wouldn’t be too far from Paul goes Berserk like an Eva
JonnyGlitched: Who would make the most dangerous mech in LRR? My bet is Kathleen
josh___something: Nelly, Showing great improvement
ghyllnox: If you like training montages, you'll love OOFC
ContingentCat subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 74 months!

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, ContingentCat! (Today's storm count: 144)
saucemaster5000: come hang out! oki oki is super fun!
Rhynerd: Actually, what would be worse? An eva going berserk or an NHP unshackling?
Jorsh029: Thoughtful self-improvement through video games jorsh0Tap
JonnyGlitched: No Beej seems very Beejlander thing to do
ImmortalLen: Beej will see this trail through
asddsa28: it good
fastlane250: Can't have Beejlander without the lrrBEEJ ... otherwise it's just 'Lander'.
JonnyGlitched: Oh, Dark Urges run?
ImmortalLen: How dare you!
josh___something: CAM
FarleyF: oy - Shadowheart is a goth treasure
ContingentCat: LUL CAM
DoodlestheGreat: No, but Asterion was seen on thwe grassy knoll...
JonnyGlitched: Turns out I like it when women talk down to me
Serpens77: Yes Shadowheart is a gatekeeper and a hater, but she's also God's favourite princess and the most interesting girl in the world
DigitalSeahorse: lrrAWESOME
TheAinMAP: Thank you for streaming.
Nigouki: Thanks for the stream!
ReachW: Thanks for strim, bye all!
JonnyGlitched: byeeeeeeeeeee
