aitsu100: sports kilt
mynameisie: It’s like not wearing pants but you can still fetch the mail
ShifuDaxiongmao: what you need, is adding a fan to the kilt
MungoDude: meanwhile in NZ, it's 8°C
ContingentCat: Just wear a skirt Beej, fuck gender norms
ragederuin: it really is
TheMerricat: tights.
SaiaseiGM: Nothing saying a guy can’t wear a skirt.
Radyin: Utili-silk.
rocketjohn: that's just a spandex miniskirt
Raiz0k: Yup.
ShifuDaxiongmao: "Form fitting kilt".. that's a new phrase :D
TheMerricat: or maybe some sort of green body suit.
Scarbble: men-cil skirt
TXC2: so a black pencil skirt
SaiaseiGM: @themerricat I mean tights are my secret tech
Tr3nzyyy: @contingentcat yeah fuck gender norms
KronicDeth: I started with Utilikilts. They are hot. But, people still confused them for skirts, so I said fuck it and just started wearing skirts as they are softer and thinner.
ShifuDaxiongmao: go silk :D
Raiz0k: In fact historically there were plenty of guys that wore things that would be currently classified as "skirts".
TXC2: a high waist hides your love handles
GapFiller: I am a man who rocked the EGL look for 10 years
Orgmastron: Hell yeah @contingentcat
TwoMenInAHorseCostume: Queue Beej posing and saying "It's like I'm wearing nothing at all!"
GapFiller: lotta frilly skirts
wench_tacular: always a classy look
Creideiki_SE: The point of a Utilikilt is that it has all of the pockets. I think such a skirt would be hard to find.
cuttlefishman: You really don't Beej
ani_laurel: A linen skirt is pro-strat in the summer
HavenJunde: heck gender norms, more men should wear skirts

SaiaseiGM: I can’t do anything without pockets.
Henshini: Can you wear suspenders with jeans?
Kaizoman2: Or you have to be very round.
Raiz0k: Yeah, Terry Crews is a clothing category in on himself.
cuttlefishman: I've a pair of high viz suspenders, good looking
Kaizoman2: Ping pong ball shaped
Jondare: Yeah that man could make ANYTHING look good
Manae: Downside to suspenders are almost having to have sleeves on your shirt. Right against the skin or tank-type shirt? Going to get itchy
KronicDeth: @Creideiki_SE yeah, getting those outside pockets are hard, some amazon vendors sell pocketed skirts, but it's hard to search for
KronicDeth: "cargo skirt" is a thing though, but heavy fabric again on those
ContingentCat: Just do it, Women weren't allowed to wear pants for a long time until they said fuck that and did it anyways.
GapFiller: small deets can be amazing!
TXC2: Destroy gender
SaiaseiGM: It’s like how cH Ominous Heather is the same as irl Heather

Juliamon: If you're nervous about trying a skirt, being stuck at home is the perfect time to try it.
KronicDeth: If you need sockets with kilts/skirts when it is colder, I like Sock Dreams, they have long socks that work for bigger thighs, which works for men too.
ZeroArcana: it is still too cold
Scarbble: @SaiaseiGM i have some on the way that are black with rainbow hearts down the side. i am excite
SaiaseiGM: Nice!
Scarbble: also seconding sock dreams for literally all your sock needs
Juliamon: Seconding Sock Dreams for plus-size socks (even thigh-highs)
kusinohki: goldilocks dumbness level
TXC2: the exact right amount of dumb
Orgmastron: Nice @scarbble
DoodlestheGreat: It's not entertainingly dumb.

Brozard: The enemies at the very end that aren’t a problem were nerfed
GapFiller: how many straws are on this camels back right now?
Brozard: Just let the Almoghty
ashteranic: it was kinda hilarious how almost immediately after the event, within hours, it was possible to tell that it wasn't going to hit its metrics
Brozard: *Almighty crash
GapFiller: surely theres a point where yr start to wonder if Bungie are trying to drive people away on purpose
Raiz0k: There's also the fact that the dev team working on that, so they want go give the thing.
Graham_LRR: The community *could* fail this. But also they don’t even WANT to succeed because they’re sick of this activity.
ShifuDaxiongmao: they will do a follow up event
kkrasm: The last few times they have had a community event that looked to be heading to fail they chickened out and auto completed it
Zaz___: "skinning" ?
ShifuDaxiongmao: "you get a SECOND CHANCE!"
GapFiller: Graham_LRR evening G
TheMoatman: "I feel like this almost could've worked", the Bungie story
ashteranic: not to mention the story post community event opens up a chunk of a map no-one's ever properly seen
thundershot879: destiny story!
Foxmar320: Graham_LRR I was only able to run the tower event twice when it first came out and it was terrible
thundershot879: seraph tower is really boring
Foxmar320: Im glad I can't play anymore
ShifuDaxiongmao: @Graham_LRR The "animated" video was one I didn't know I needed to watch. Thank you for that informative bit. :)
ashteranic: also, bungie were asking us to do another pve activity for a pvp weapon reward
Brozard: There’s 3 destinations, 3M on each destination
ashteranic: like, no? i don't give a crap about a new weapon for pvpers, screw them
Scarbble: i've enjoyed seraph tower enough, it is a bit repetitive, but also people just don't seem to get 'throw ball at thing'
ashteranic: let them do their own grinding
TheMerricat: I mean I remember back in Asheron's Call the devs had to God Mode a group of players to enable them to push past the players who were fighting to prevent an event from being completed.
kusinohki: almost sounds like a kick starter campaign...
kusinohki: "final week push"
Mal2mad: this reminds me of the first launch of the MTGA Season Pass
kkrasm: Destiny Players also just came off a multi week event where the classes were pitched against each other to complete the most bounties, burnout is real
GapFiller: seems legit
liono76: Is that the sky whale?
Raiz0k: It pretty much sounds like a job?
ragederuin: ew work
LordChrusher: cheer100
ashteranic: yep, that definitely kicked in a lot this week
ashteranic: I noped out immediately
Foxmar320: The grind is real
thundershot879: yeah people are burnt out after guardian games
TXC2: ugh, FOMO
Ivalenz_: I would like to see the Excel sheet that determines the fate of Destiny.
LordChrusher: Destiny 2 is a bit too grindy
kkrasm: The calculations people were making is that if the progress from when the event started was replicated that it would take longer than the season has left to finish the event
seismiclawns: destiny 2 seems to attract a lot of people with fomo
Foxmar320: I opened Pocket Camp just to unlock the New Horizons stuff :P
liono76: I much prefer the classic sunk cost fallacy
NimrodXIV: I dropped PC the day I got NH
GapFiller: FOMO is the blight of our times
GapFiller: well no there are other things thatre even more of a blight on our times but still the point stands
mtvcdm: Destiny and AC, same basic issue: Only so many hours in the day.
Raiz0k: I've learned about FOMO only this month, and I've found it interesting that I immediately, instinctively, felt anger at the concept.
kkrasm: @seismiclawns less it attracts them and more its been designed to encourage it
TXC2: it's a blight, one of many
djalternative: Beej is off of MGTPQ?!?!?!
Raiz0k: Beej plays "Stars!" confirmed.
mtvcdm: You have X amount of game time and all these games, you have to allocate.
Dog_of_Myth: I think I've played the first two week of the new season of Destiny 2 and then I stopped. Got to be to much and none of my friends play anymore.
ashteranic: well, sunk cost feelings kick in
MungoDude: I've dropped pretty much every phone game now except Neko Atsume and some chess puzzle thing I forget the name of
TwoMenInAHorseCostume: But, but, the Island needs me!
couldntpickausername: I'm so glad I quit playing arena
kusinohki: paul audio is a bit lower than beej or kathleen btw...
couldntpickausername: that 1-2 hours a day can be devoted to other wastes of time
shamrocksheik: Destiny 2 has felt like "a job" for the last season
Arium26: Theros BD has some neat PQ cards and mechanics, but I agree
TXC2: I play arena everyday, and damn does it make me angry some times :p
Foxmar320: The last season of Destiny 2 I found to be boring and grindy, then this season started and the new net changes made it unplayable.
Scarbble: speaking of animal crossing: my wife set one of our villagers' catchphrase to "my dude" and it's *the best*
ashteranic: @foxmar320: those still aren't completely fixed, it's absurd.
Foxmar320: ashteranic I gave up and uninstalled
Raiz0k: Damn, just like those videos of warhead-piloting pigeons.
ashteranic: they rolled out an incomplete networking stack that just straight left out mountains of workarounds for weird networking issues
LordZarano: I do Duolingo as my daily-game activity. I have a 1169 day streak now
ashteranic: that they'd had working fine for two years
ashteranic: problems that didn't even exist at launch
Foxmar320: Destiny is just Beaver errors now thats it
GapFiller: lol

RaklarLS: so you pay for the game, to then pay for a subscription, and then there's more paying?

DandyGeek: Seems bad, but the power switches on the games do basically the same thing
TXC2: that's a power surge waiting to happen
im_in_love_with_a_goat: Breakers really aren't supposed to be used as switches
Foxmar320: Hello DandyGeek
Sgt_mentos: Problem: Eventually the people who are so good don't have to pay for it but people who are bad don't wanna, so who are those people who are good gonna play with?
DandyGeek: hihi
GapFiller: DandyGeek evening Ben
ashteranic: do you have a way to give tokens to friends?
RaklarLS: so, it's like the tekken f2p from ps3, but you pay more? i'm confused.
Radyin: Weren’t there 9 people playing the game yesterday?
ashteranic: because i could see buying 20 tokens and letting 4 of us play
Loonatic93: @TheMerricat Yeah... But I wasn't that smart at her age. At least, I didn't understand the things she does. But then, she has now skipped two years and is still at the top of her class. Plus she's super social.
Raiz0k: I mean, they were probably aiming for a value inflation effect.
Radyin: You pay money for PUBG, but then all your games are free. This is not free and there is this token malarkey.
ShifuDaxiongmao: It's still not as expensive as skins for Dead Or Alive games... or if you want the "full" Sims experience XD
MungoDude: oh man, I miss tekken revolution, that was pretty good for a f2p game
Raiz0k: But to do that, you need specific circumstances outside of "there's a game".
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, like that what Beej said.
kusinohki: "all you can eat for $1.99, but $1 worth, was all that I could stand"
ShifuDaxiongmao: after 4th time - this was a mistake..... after 20th time - yep, still a mistake
Foxmar320: Oh! I heard about this!
Mal2mad: minigolf is still better
mtvcdm: They move to the subocean!
RaklarLS: @MungoDude eh... that level up system was kinda broken. you could go all in as a glass cannon and almost always trade and win
GapFiller: THE VOID
TXC2: #TheVoid
mowdownjoe: T H E V O I D
ShifuDaxiongmao: Animal Crossing : The Twilight Zone
Raiz0k: AC found religion?
dialMforMara: t h e v o i d is just someone else's computer
Aylig: V O I D
JonTheGoose: you mean....they're not vacationing in the south of france??
Invitare: wait, how is it "inescapable" if they end up on a new island?
Foxmar320: Can THE VOID hurry up and take Louie from my island?
kusinohki: does cosmic encounter call it "the void" or something else?
Raiz0k: Gotta' say, that story's framing is gold.
Foxmar320: If I catch Louie Naruto running in my flowers one more time...
Tuples: Yeah, I had that. A friend of mine got my Phil, and he remembers me! Just barely though.
ShifuDaxiongmao: please, your villagers go to... a village up-stream...
Radyin: How did this work in New Leaf?
Raiz0k: The Wheel of Nookma.
Loonatic93: Wasn't Nowhere a planet in Guardians of the Galaxy?
MungoDude: Knowhere
ShifuDaxiongmao: Paul, now you know what Nintendo uses all those spare pokeballs for ;)
Sgt_mentos: Schrodinger's Villager? So have they gone or have they not???
TXC2: the void is purgatory, and going to a new island is reincarnation Kappa
Tuples: I wonder what happens if I try to get the villager back with an Amiibo.
muondecay: Would you say villager are.....Void where prohibited? :P
Raiz0k: Or, more modernly, The Nookegg.
stoicsquirrel78: Had it happen to a villager I kicked out. Someone in my FB group got them later. The villager specifically said they came from my island.
PhoebeTheGrey: Animal Crossing Over: Purgatory
tctrain: It's a really neat feature, unless you're aggressive in getting the ones you want
RaklarLS: man, this would make for an awesome sci-fi novel
BlueMechanic: there's nearly 400 villagers but if you listen to the internet you'd think there's only about 30
RaklarLS: it's like the River, but even more fucked up
TheMerricat: So here's the real question, how many islands can a villager remember having lived on?
RaklarLS: riverworld*
Foxmar320: Oh interesting
vegetalss4: Why assume "void" rather than "the world of animal crossing is bigger than the parts that appear in this game"
tctrain: I'm pretty sure they only remember their last island
Raiz0k: @BlueMechanic : loot tables yo. At least by the sound of it.
Foxmar320: I want Louie to move but he just won't go!
TStodden: I'll take Sprocket... You can have others talk to them once they start packing.
kusinohki: um... are villagers viruses??
theunknownpoetb: So have AC villagers become stds?
DarkAbyssKeeper: The animals travel to the main land for a while.
ContingentCat: or their cat followed you
DarkAbyssKeeper: Get some affairs in order.
BlueMechanic: I met someone on a friend's island then I ran into them on someone else's island and they remembered me and said they lived here now
Raiz0k: That's a famous mathematical though experiment Paul!
Dog_of_Myth: Your house in the middle of the VOID.
DoodlestheGreat: So one minute, you're visiting your friend's island, next minute you come back to a sheep in clown makeup while you scream "WHAT FRESH HELL IS THIS?"
TXC2: vegetalss4 players don't have object permeance Kappa
GapFiller: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 42:17.
Raiz0k: (Hilbert's Hotel for anyone wondering)
Foxmar320: oh good another D2 story :P
shamrocksheik: "ongoing"
shamrocksheik: "all the time"
Dog_of_Myth: @Foxmar320 HAHA
DandyGeek: oh, yes, this thing
GapFiller: Foxmar320 D2 the gift that keeps on giving eh
ashteranic: haha, this was a hilarious conspiracy theory
Foxmar320: ummmm
theunknownpoetb: Talk to your partner about getting O’Hare today!
ShifuDaxiongmao: "There is no problem. Ignoring the ticking clock"
Foxmar320: Makes that rumor from a month ago more ominous
Brozard: Oh, I thought this was going to be about Hunters not making Iron Banner progress if they are wearing their Guardian Games cloak
Sgt_mentos: Is this just a UI glitch?
kusinohki: earth is already at 4 min till midnight...
Dog_of_Myth: @Foxmar320 Nothing bad will happen right. LUL
Raiz0k: Ah, so there's a precedent.
Foxmar320: lol
GapFiller: YES
GapFiller: this story
ShDragon: I'm so glad that exists
Raiz0k: Aaaand we've gone full circle.
ContingentCat: katesLol of course
sk8sam24: Easy breezy beautiful
Orgmastron: YES
Amentur: He's very cute in that dress PrideGasp
GDwarf: The eternal dress mod is great, because the cutscenes are in-engine with physics so they largely animate right
TStodden: We're back at 4 til midnight? I though we were at 1 til midnight...
incslayer: does it work in combat?
kusinohki: that dress looks like it involves a corsett... I wouldn't call it comfortable
Graham_LRR: It’s a PS4 game, so it’s Save File editing, which is... not as straightforward
TheMerricat: So stupid question, what story was the "Tony" part of the headline from? Did I space out for a story?
GapFiller: we shd be glad Cloud didnt end up inna merrywidow
cuttlefishman: It'll be out on PC... at some point
TStodden: We're at 11:58:20 pm on the Doomsday Clock (100 seconds from Midnight)
TXC2: TheMerricat I'm not suer we've got there yet
GapFiller: cuttlefishman PS4 exclusive only for a year apparently
Foxmar320: I would pay for DLC Cloud dress
Sgt_mentos: Wow, that's unheard of
TheMerricat: Thanks @TXC2 :)
Orgmastron: ????
KinoGami: TheMerricat i presume they'll be talking about THPS1+2 remasters eventually
TXC2: Civ6 is somehow over $100 still
mowdownjoe: It's really the 3rd Expansion split up peacemeal. Priced the same as an expansion.
ghostvalv: :/
GapFiller: Foxmar320 that is totally gonna be DLC later isnt it
Sgt_mentos: That's super unheard of considering Firaxis and Civ....
DoodlestheGreat: @themerricat, it's prbably the "Coming Up" segment.
Foxmar320: GapFiller I hope so
TheMerricat: I'm still playing Civ 5, partially because 6 never dropped in price.
KinoGami: just put the FFVIIR dresses in FFXIV
CaptainSpam: Overcooked 2 released a "Season Pass", too, just for their existing DLC.
cuttlefishman: If they're releasing as much as they say in it, it's a bit more than the prior 2 expansions
cuttlefishman: not huge amount, but a bit more
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : pretty sure it did, but maybe only outside the US.
CaptainSpam: That is, Overcooked 2's new "Season Pass" is just three previously-released DLCs.
LordZarano: Season pass is a pre-order for DLC, usually
cuttlefishman: "Season Pass" is a kinda unhelpful term
TXC2: the concept of the season pass is just such BS
djalternative: @TheMerricat I'm still waiting for the $13 for the whole thing
WrightJustice: I'm curious how civ 6 pass will work for console
ashteranic: Diablo 3 bred itself a neat cycle with a quarterlyish season cycle
Raiz0k: That's why Paradox's model works.
ashteranic: they didn't even really add much, it just coincides with major patches, and a seasonal theme
Amentur: Just one more week of Civ, then I'll sleep
djalternative: @Raiz0k it has but not for the whole game. just base and not nearly as steap as civ 5 cuts
Raiz0k: I.e. free patches + Paid DLC adding actual mechanics.

Dog_of_Myth: Sweet
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k @djalternative according to my steam extension info, it hit $15 on sale in 2019 but the normal price is still $60 for just the base game.
TXC2: is it keeping the OG music?
Dared00: This is the whole game...s
Foxmar320: I hope it keeps the music
BlueMechanic: Superman by Goldfinger intensifies
ShifuDaxiongmao: Insert joke about how old TH is.. and how old the playerbase will be :D
sk8sam24: Can it compete with Skater XL?
KinoGami: but with modern age for the skaters
Dog_of_Myth: @TXC2 Yes
Foxmar320: Good!
KinoGami: not all
Graham_LRR: Yes now it’s both games. Previously it was a selection of levels from both, and not amazing.
djalternative: @LoadingReadyRun Most*
TXC2: ooooh
Qvdv: most
Dared00: Not all, but almost everything
KinoGami: they said "most"
Amentur: Not all afaik
RvLeshrac: Crazy Taxi was godawful because it had Wrong Music.
Graham_LRR: Not all soundtrack but most
Graved: Before it was a basic remaster, now it is a full remake :P
Raiz0k: It really kicks the lllamas ass!
ShifuDaxiongmao: When your PARENTS were gamers!
RvLeshrac: So we'll see what this includes.
GapFiller: OH just imagine the licensing arguments to went into that one
CommiePuddin: Gimmie dat Sum 41
Myrniss: it was good! lrrFRUMP ..... i'm not old. > . >
djalternative: Ska is BACK!!!
RvLeshrac: If it doesn't have the *vast majority* of the original music, meh.
StarlitGhost: they're also scanning all the skaters as they are now, in their 50s

Kaizoman2: When did Blink 182 become classic rock?...
SamsSkunkworks: @Myrniss fup yeah it was!
ghostvalv: :(
Kaizoman2: That’s the real question
ashteranic: whelp, i feel old, thanks beej
GapFiller: RvLeshrac lets be honest benefit of hindsight what else did Crazy Taxi REALLY have going for it apart from the music?
Jondare: But that's the music of my childhood, so that would mean i'm... oh no... nonono
Orgmastron: The 90's were 20 years ago
leebenningfield: I agree with Paul on that
ShifuDaxiongmao: Kathleen, you know it's old when it has become background music in the supermarkets :D
RvLeshrac: Oldies is like "up to 20 years ago"
GapFiller: 2000 was 20 years old
Myrniss: @SamsSkunkworks fup yeah!
theunknownpoetb: Sweet, I’ll get to listen to Ring of Fire on repeat for 3 hours again!
TXC2: the 60-80s yeah
stumpinaut: yesterday?
ContingentCat: what if our parents were never cool enough to do drugs?
Digigoner: so... today?
Radyin: Did we ever call music from the 30s and 40s "oldies"?
Graved: today
Dared00: Oh cool, early 2010s
ShifuDaxiongmao: feel old yet? :D
ghostvalv: time marches on
GapFiller: the 21st Century has been going on for 20 years now
ZeroArcana: my problem is that the local "classic rock" station plays anything from th 70's to the 00's
MungoDude: ok so anything from the last 50 years, got it
Raiz0k: But modern parents do "drugs" even now, soooo.
cuttlefishman: my dad has that story also!
TheHaCoFo: sh** i have to get the epic store for tony hawk..
TheMerricat: @Radyin we? Probably not, but our parents....?
DoodlestheGreat: @radyin, yes, they used to be called that in the 60's/70's, along with 50 R&R.
SievertSchreibr: Barf!
StageMgrRob: Oldies for me are from the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s.
djalternative: also, GTA V is free on Epic today
ashteranic: about all i know about my parents when they were young was that they had 70's hair and mustaches.
DiscordianTokkan: Because my mom has told that story a bunch of times
TheMerricat: @djalternative is the store back up?
RvLeshrac: "Nah, it's fine." [Beej wlil remember this]
Kaizoman2: @discordiantokkan Drinking and driving...
ashteranic: but they were both on the old side when i was born
GapFiller: phunnily enough it feels we're getting to the point where communal drug taking becomes a family pastime
GapFiller: esp weed
Amentur: Does incense count? My parents are very catholic
ashteranic: well past their wild ages.
TXC2: it was Traumatising for me when my "dad" did that :P
DiscordianTokkan: (At least my mom wasn't the driver...)
djalternative: @TheMerricat that's the million dollar question
Dish_KP: Smarter than puking inside the car
far2muchsarcasm: i barfed out the side of a rental car once
cuttlefishman: Pretty sure it wasn't drugs, just was him being under the weather for my father
Raiz0k: That's.... impressive.
far2muchsarcasm: to be fair it was carsicknes
Raithencore235: My mom at my uncles 40th birthday, it involved a claculator and her playing with it and comparing it to a Star Trek communicator
DoodlestheGreat: It's AMAZING.
ShifuDaxiongmao: "Tony Hawks pro skater - for people whose dads barfed out of the car window"
Dared00: better than Detroit
Raiz0k: But seriously 'though, I think the "oldies" categorization is going to extend as more as more people participate in current mass culture, especially couple with the aging of "Western" societies.
Orgmastron: Oh sick
Creideiki_SE: And it's out on Mac. So maybe soon it'll be out on Linux, and then I get to play it!
Graved: Sick
Sgt_mentos: Gee, that's impressive
TXC2: halving the RAM is big
Amentur: I would contend that most things are better than Detroit, Dared00
devil_dan: It will run on an abacus now.
aerohydra: what game?
ContingentCat: oh cool, my dumb computer might be able to handle it
SievertSchreibr: Wow! That’s impressive!

ArcOfTheConclave: Run Doom in Doom
RvLeshrac: As a reminder, Zachtronics produced a version of Shenzhen Solitaire, from Shenzhen I/O, which will fit on a floppy, and runs in DOS.
MungoDude: I had a 286, couldn't run doom but could run wolf3d
Raiz0k: I used to run Quake on my 486 on a screen the size of a malnourished postcard.

Juliamon: There's a reason "Christians" and "born-again Christians" are two different things.
TXC2: I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume most Christians couldn't give a putney fuck about Persona games :P
ShifuDaxiongmao: that was a high tier shift, paul :D
GapFiller: hey Kathleen dyr ever play the early Personas?
ani_laurel: Yeah, the "Born Again"s are a whole other flavour of Christian
gnome_friend: @TXC2 Persona has a lot of interesting imagery for all sorts of religious people
Shrengar: pokemon is a megaten game
Manae: Was P2 the one being accused of causing kids to shoot themselves in the head?
TheMerricat: There are Christians and then there are the folk who spent a summer buying Harry Potter books just to burn them.
seismiclawns: I'm thankful for some Born again christians to give us hilarious content like this
Kathleen_LRR: I did play the early personas, but I didn't enjoy them as much as 3, 4 or 5

Kathleen_LRR: P1 is a slog
Amentur: lrrHORN ?

TXC2: big yikes
ContingentCat: gee I wonder why there's those kinds of gender discrepancy

Thandres: the eternal tide of the interwebs
richard_ermen: @darrtimus I can. People will fuck up at every age of humanity.
Raiz0k: Ah yes, the sloshing storm of sh*t.
Tiber727: I'm in the, "this is no big deal" camp.
GapFiller: Paul that implies theres a non hamfisted way of doing this stuff
SirMorek: "Horny on main" is some weird twitter thing i've missed out on it entering the common lexicon
darrtimus: lrrHAM lrrHAM lrrHAM
Tiber727: From what I've heard, the tweet is still up in Japanese.
TheMerricat: @darrtimus it's the reverse of the lucky 10,000 from XKCD. As much as we would love for everyone to be born 'woke', till our culture as a whole is 'woke' you are always going to run into someone who doesn't realize what a creep they are being.

accountmadeforants: Probably Draftpod, yeah. Amentur. That's what Adam was talking about lately.
GapFiller: Crisis of Infinite Bens
Raiz0k: @ContingentCat : just got it. I'm not sure Kathleen's idea of pounding grass (presumably using Ian's back as the mortar) for TTSF sounds viable, 'though ;).
TXC2: GapFiller yeah they'll do that :P
RvLeshrac: One Or More More
Foxmar320: Yay Island Tour!
GapFiller: The Real One More
Raiz0k: @TXC2 : yeah, I would laugh, but at my age, it hurts too much ;).
Foxmar320: YES
TXC2: Kathleen's Island Tour: the stream ALL the mods watch Kappa
ContingentCat: oh yeah a flower breeding special!

Ba_Dum_Tish: Steal peoples ideas the stream
richard_ermen: Oh Blue ROSE....I heard Velvet and was really confused Oo
Raiz0k: I found it interesting that AC is slowly evolving into a higher-pixel-density Minecraft will all those mechanics.
ContingentCat: I think they bred blue roses in real life recently, and yeah it's really hard so I like that it's hard in AC
GapFiller: Ba_Dum_Tish shhh yr saying the quiet bit loud Kappa
Creideiki_SE: I don't play AC, but I saw a Twitter thread recently where someone described the surprisingly realistic reverse-engineered virtual flower genetics...
CaptainSpam: And then someone found tempra paints and presto! Blue roses! Kappa
Sgt_mentos: GMO that stuff, huehue
Foxmar320: Oh yeah super breeding that stuff
ContingentCat: real flower breeders are yet to make Gold roses I think

Dared00: ah yes, more Watch+Cafe
Ba_Dum_Tish: Andymator
mowdownjoe: ANDY-MATOR?!
ContingentCat: oooo Andy DMing
GapFiller: ANDY!
TheMerricat: "A blue rose is a flower of the genus Rosa (family Rosaceae) that presents blue-to-violet pigmentation instead of the more common red, white, or yellow. Blue roses are often used to symbolise secret or unattainable love. However, because of genetic limitations, they do not exist in nature. In 2004, researchers used genetic modification to create roses that contain the blue pigment delphinidin."
richard_ermen: Will it be the Phantom of the Barn?
SniHjen: AC: assassins crossing, or animal creed
