TheMerricat: Afternoon chat! have we Ganted Yuri yet?
RockPusher: gabyHi Sarah_Serinde
TXC2: Hello wynternyghtynggale welcome
frnknstn: more kids like crust than like garlic
xantos69: cheer50 Hey Ian how goes the Zoom Zoom Crunch?
Snowcookies: I was the opposite kid who liked the crust more than the mushy soft part
wynternyghtynggale: I just made loaded potato soup and now I want croutons
TXC2: the worst food crime I saw on twitter was the woman who washed ground beef and drained into the sink :p
Jeezy56: zoom zoom crunch, the brand new cereal from Mazda
ryllo7: what plateform are you on
RockPusher: I wonder if Ian ever fought in the NZ spaghetti pizza wars lrrBEEJ
TacitusVigil: Bisque is the way to go. ;)
wynternyghtynggale: oooh nice
TacitusVigil: Mmm, mushroom bisque...
TXC2: better then long, pork Kappa
wynternyghtynggale: my soup = 5lb potatoes 3lb bacon 2lb cheese..... so unhealthy but so good
xantos69: See I take my queue from you on pulled pork. I go with Sous Vide or not at all.
wynternyghtynggale: oooh bourbon on pork <3

TacitusVigil: We did a pulled chicken taco night last night. Twas lovely. :)
ryllo7: i can imagine the smell
DemonScratch: try using the blue shell
TacitusVigil: In a teriyaki sauce. :D
TXC2: it's 9pm here, I'm gonna need us to move on from food talk :p
ryllo7: i think i will go cook my ribeyes
theblakdeth: I've only dropped in once in a while during this series, but Ian has really improved quite a bit from where he started.
RockPusher: tqsLol okay, I just encountered a most excellent sentence - "New Zealand has no rules for pizza construction, leading to an eclectic and varied approach to toppings." benginChaos
ryllo7: how many laps are going to do
RockPusher: No Rules!!!
TXC2: ryllo7 timed race, not number of laps
Xavorin: NZ likes to live dangerously.
DarkMorford: I've got a package of chicken thighs in the fridge that I need to vacuum-seal and stick in the freezer, now that I think about it.
PixelArtDragon: If you don't mind me asking, what is your day job?
TheMerricat: Am I reading this right? is Ian in 1st?
theblakdeth: good thing race cars don't allow you to money shift
Snowcookies: You should look at Brazil's pizzas. They have so many toppings
RockPusher: Ian is a cog in the educational machine! lrrHEART
TXC2: Ian Effects the minds of young children for his job Kappa
TheMerricat: One of the same minds behind Love Doctors and the "Fishing from the Cat Anus" is responsible for shaping the minds of small children in BC, I'm warmed.
TheMerricat: LOL :)
RockPusher: tqsLol benginLol gabyLul
xantos69: @TheMerricat Um...The Love Doctors was amazing
PixelArtDragon: They really like that perfectly manicured grass, don't they.
qwr1000: greeting and salutations!
TheMerricat: You'll notice I made no complaints chat :P
graal_smith: A nice relaxing qualifier?
theblakdeth: marshalls are very picky about T1 it seems
TXC2: Race control needs to settle down
VmKid: The Race Director's all like "Who's driving that ca- oh crap it's Horner."
TXC2: hello qwr1000 welcome
VmKid: Don't chat and drive, Ian

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, TheFickleCat! (Today's storm count: 5)
Snowcookies: The law says nothing about chatting and driving tho
TXC2: we need a slow time button like in GTA5 so Ian can read chat
theblakdeth: i can barely operate my wipers and drive in WRC at the same time, so i cant imagine trying to read twitch chat while racing
Jeezy56: that was the line in T1
TheMandrew: darkest dungeon
TXC2: Darkest Dungeon is the game
TheMerricat: chat I'm having problems parsing the hud, on the left it looks like ian is position 1/22 but on the right it has him in 4th, what am I missing?
theblakdeth: turns all other coasters into Mountains
ehsteveG: 'Death is patient, it will wait."
PixelArtDragon: @TheMerricat The left is PB time
theblakdeth: @TheMerricat the right is relative cars around Ian
ryllo7: or severly hamper your ability to drive
Snowcookies: Death is for the npc drivers
TheMerricat: thanks chat, that clears it up for me :)
TankWraith: Killing the cones like a pro
RandomTrivia: *bonk*
PixelArtDragon: One of the scariest things that's ever happened to me was when I zoned out in while driving, and suddenly had no recollection of the past 30 seconds.
VmKid: boop
TXC2: need more braking into that corner me thinks
theblakdeth: it was never about the cones
PixelArtDragon: I was fine, but it's scary AF
RockPusher: ♫ See my vest, see my vest, no you can't, it's gone and left … ♫
theblakdeth: RIP FL tyre
TheMerricat: @PixelArtDragon you don't know how many times when I was still working for the hospital of hell that I'd be driving home after a 16-20 hour stint and suddenly realize I had no memory of most of the 30 minute drive. I'm just goddamn lucky that due to my situation I was driving on roads that were mostly empty. I''m so glad I
TheMerricat: I'm not working for them any more.
RockPusher: Hot tires in your area!
DemonScratch: I can't believe you have to race the rest of the tournament without front left tyre
RandomTrivia: LUL
Pteraspidomorphi: :|
VmKid: Damn it Ian
felipe_modesto: vroom vroom
TXC2: "fool, I'm telling you it's hot and wet, that's great if you're a racing tire, not if you are the jungle!"
Jeezy56: even when cold these soft tyres seem better than the hards
TacitusVigil: Pretty sure Ian meant to say Tokka and Rahzar Kappa
CaptainSpam: @TheMerricat I've had that situation, too, when driving through Ohio to visit my family in Michigan. I'll grant that a lot of Ohio looks the same, but the fact that I couldn't remember the past X minutes of the drive at times was scary.
TheMerricat: @Jeezy56 my limited understanding of tire hardness is that soft hold better overall and wear out way quicker.
theblakdeth: are there brake temps in PC2?
VmKid: All I know about cars is Honda Civic make me go. Sometimes car not go. Then you call the magic car-make-go people and they make car go.
Mark_D_Stroyer: Ian, looks like you need to trail-brake more with that car
62MGcobra: soft tires also heat up faster than hard tires
Jeezy56: oh wow by 0.016s
TXC2: some razor thin times in this race
lode1: Ooo, Hockenheimring!
Jeezy56: ANT! dammit ANT
RealGamerCow: Hi chat, what track are we on today?
TXC2: hello RealGamerCow we're on hockenheimring
lode1: @RealGamerCow Hockenheimring.
PixelArtDragon: What is this, a race for ants?
Mark_D_Stroyer: Yeah Hockenheim has a stunning track
VmKid: @TXC2 @lode1 Gesundheit
Jeezy56: rude
graal_smith: So if cold tires are problematic, how come pit crews haven't figured out how to pre-warm tires?
PixelArtDragon: You got clipped from behind there
TheMerricat: I really wish they would invent a peripheral to simulate the g-forces of games like this, I think it would really help in handling to being able to 'feel' yourself slipping.
TXC2: graal_smith they have, it's just VERY expensive
Mark_D_Stroyer: @graal_smith That’s been F1 tech for a long time, but there’s still a sharp cool off getting into track
Jeezy56: graal_smith you're generally not allowed to
RandomTrivia: It's difficult to clip things from in front, given the linear flow of time lrrBEEJ
VmKid: Imagine this but on a KUKA Arm
graal_smith: Probably costs less to get a racing car at that point
Mark_D_Stroyer: @themerricat Motion rigs are quite expensive.
CaptainSpam: I would imagine a g-force simulator could get rather dangerous.
Jeezy56: soon it'll only be... WEC with tyre warmers I think
SnowBuddy18: @graal_smith they do, but they're cold again by the time you hit the end of the pit lane
Vulfe: give your tires a loving warm bath before their big day on the race track
62MGcobra: didn't F1 just ban tire warmers?
VmKid: Racing simulator on Epcot's Mission Space
lode1: Yep.
johnalogue: Getting an old MX-5 has gotta be cheaper than a slide simulator rig
RockPusher: There is only so much you can do to simulate a physical experience without actually replicating the physics
Jeezy56: I think F1 still has tyre warmers this year but gets rid of them next year when they go to 18 inch rims
Mark_D_Stroyer: F1 has been in a race back towards the bottom for a while though
PixelArtDragon: Epcot's space mission is one of the best space experiences
TXC2: it's hilarious how stuff F1 has banned when it's meant to the top teir of racing :p
TXC2: *how much
VmKid: @PixelArtDragon Tell that to me the last time I went on the More Intense Mission and came off feeling like I'd just had a concussion
lode1: @johnalogue Going to race in the 24 Hours of Lemons would be cheaper then that.
graal_smith: Who is this jerk who keeps on clipping you?
RedPhoenixCasts: afternoon Ian
RedPhoenixCasts: how goes
Saunabath: Yeah a simulator rig wouldn't really have running costs
TXC2: hello RedPhoenixCasts welcome
johnalogue: @lode1 by design, but I imagine the cost is made up for in the required technical skill
RedPhoenixCasts: Oh I know, I saw yesterday
PixelArtDragon: A simulator rig also probably won't need the same kind of insurance
RedPhoenixCasts: ah
RedPhoenixCasts: nurb
VmKid: Just win the race, just win the race, just win- just win- just win the race
RedPhoenixCasts: unfortunately im a little occupied to give in race help
johnalogue: (personally I hope after getting a new job to save up for a Genesis Coupe V6 8-speed auto)
TheMerricat: no idea how good these are but they aren't 'that' expensive. All things considered, but really my wish is more 'cyberpunkish' being able to give you the feeling without actually having to be DOING the thing for the feeling.
TXC2: just win the race forehead
VmKid: Just go on YouTube and search for "Win the Race" and click on the one with Robotnik on it
ContingentCat: !advice
LRRbot: Moisten your bones.
CaptainSpam: The Race Director worked hard on that pavement.
lode1: @RedPhoenixCasts Actually Ian's racing at Hockenheimring, and not the Nurburgring
Saunabath: No he hates you touching his curbs
PixelArtDragon: The scenic Nburgring?
PhoebeTheGrey: I can't not read that as "Nuremberg"
johnalogue: @Saunabath never touch their curbs without permission
DemonScratch: How petty can the race director get? I want to see "No fries in the cafeteria for your next meal" pop up
CaptainSpam: The scenic Numberwang track.
VmKid: I'm sure that Graham and Paul won't mind you repurposing the Live studio for a motion simulator.
Saunabath: @PhoebeTheGrey Neither couldn't James May in a Grand Tour episode
RedPhoenixCasts: Kinda sad that Nurb lost a lot of the land, the big ring was nice
lode1: The nsburgring would have to compete with the Jewelsburg Motor Oval.
Jeezy56: that front left is getting a bit hot
RedPhoenixCasts: watch your left front, its wearing more than the others
CaptainSpam: That front left tire is getting hot in a big hurry.
CaptainSpam: lrrFINE
VmKid: lrrFINE
RandomTrivia: lrrFINE
TXC2: Front lefty is the Radical tire, it does it's own thing
Saunabath: The tire only needs to last 12 minutes anyway
RedPhoenixCasts: ah okay, how much fuel in car rn?
CaptainSpam: Still holding 4th, good, good...
TXC2: RedPhoenixCasts 11.7 units
RedPhoenixCasts: okay... how much are we using per lap?
adambomb625: I'm not familiar with this game, what makes it different from an average racing game?
lode1: @RedPhoenixCasts The Südschleife is gone but the Nordschleife is still kicking.
Jeezy56: it's fine we've got plenty of fuel for the race - we're not cutting it fine
Jeezy56: just less than before
TheMerricat: I sorta like that the game used DOF to blur the dash when we are turnning.
TXC2 is watching the fuel like a hawk
TXC2: I'd say around 1.5 units of fuel per lap
VmKid: Thornhill NotLikeThis
CaptainSpam: Well, gooooood for Nick Thornhill.
Jeezy56: oh wow he went a lot faster
TXC2: well bully for him
RedPhoenixCasts: @lode1 RIP Sudschleife
RockPusher: simulating the change in pressure on your eyes when you are accellerating/decellerating … cool
Jeezy56: shame the race director doesn't care about them
PixelArtDragon: I've noticed that the AI is really good at the tight turns, which this track has a lot of
CaptainSpam: Race Director: "Nick Thornhill, speed up and cut corners or you won't beat Quattro Bagina."
Jeezy56: really thought the race director was gonna ping you for T1 :D
TXC2: I wonder if we can power slide in this game?
Jeezy56: yeah, but you'll have to change car probably
TheMerricat: I'm sure you could @TXC2 if you want the race director to take your lunch away.
CaptainSpam: That last turn is getting you every time. Hrm...
3 raiders from DaveyDavie have joined!
Jeezy56: or at least turn the traction control off
TXC2: hello Raiders
NoSkillJoe: get raided
DaveyDavie: GET RAIDED!
TheMerricat: Welcome raiders!
TXC2: hello DaveyDavie welcome
DaveyDavie: theres literally 4 of us
NoSkillJoe: theres 3 of us but we'rekinda loud
RandomTrivia: Welcome raiding friends! lrrHEART
DaveyDavie: but get raided
DaveyDavie: <3

TXC2: DaveyDavie and the raiders, good name for a band
NoSkillJoe: srt
DaveyDavie: dibs
NoSkillJoe: skrt
Jeezy56: you might not have enough fuel for this whole session
TheMerricat: Would be a mix up of the Monkees and Indian Jones for costuming.
NoSkillJoe: how tf did i misspell skrt
DaveyDavie: well have the crystal skull guy from the bad Indiana jones movie
TXC2: english is a tricky thing
NoSkillJoe: true
DaveyDavie: and hatted band members
double_stuffed_orio: no old Hockenheim :(
NoSkillJoe: my band name wouldbe "awkward noise"
DaveyDavie: dan ackroyd will be in my band
RockPusher: tiltyhPLS tiltyhEXTREME
RandomTrivia: IAN
RandomTrivia: Dammit
TheDailyMapleSyrup: The bottle is better then the vodka
TheMerricat: "Our original Crystal Head Vodka is crafted from locally sourced, Canadian corn. It is distilled four times into a neutral grain spirit and blended with pristine water from Newfoundland, Canada. The vodka is filtered seven times, of which three are through layers of semi-precious crystals known as Herkimer diamonds. Our iconic skull-shaped bottle is produced in Europe, where bits of crystal are melted into the glass to ensure absolute clarity" :D
DaveyDavie: dan akroyd can play a xylophone of glass skulls
johnalogue: it has absolutely NO POISON in it
DaveyDavie: for daveydavie and the raiders
ContingentCat: I imagine some amount of their sales is for the skull bottle
johnalogue: except for the alchohol
TacitusVigil: I remember that episode of Stargate SG1 Kappa
DaveyDavie: 50% dan akroyd 50% skull bottle
CaptainSpam: Willie hears ye, Race Director. Willie don't care.
PixelArtDragon: @TacitusVigil That episode is really good
TXC2: CaptainSpam :D
RandomTrivia: Wooo, not zero!
VmKid: gdqFAST
CaptainSpam: Aaaaaaaand gassed.
Snowcookies: Rage Against the Race director
RedPhoenixCasts: Uh
TacitusVigil: @PixelArtDragon I wish they had brought back Daniel's...uncle? grandpa? and Quetzelcoatl
RockPusher: jamieOopsie
TXC2: every episode of SG1 is really good, except for Cold Lazarus of course Kappa
RedPhoenixCasts: Gas out of your gun?
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy! I see I tuned in an interesting time :D
Saunabath: Where in the HUD is the fuel gauge actually?
DaveyDavie: outgassed and outmanned
RandomTrivia: That went perfectly fine!
double_stuffed_orio: no hairpin either :(
TXC2: Now we know
Territan: Is he still having that problem where the left front overheats and right rear is still kind of frigid?
Jeezy56: a bit, but it's not really a problem
TXC2: a car without fuel stops? has science gone to far? Kappa
ContingentCat: Just drive backwards for a bit to even it out lrrBEEJ
Jeezy56: huh there's only 0.001s between P1 and P2
TheMerricat: Chat do I be responsible and make myself dinner or give in to the urge to order wingstop for delivery....
Territan: And that reminds me: Where should we send the proposals for the Eggmelt logo?
NotCainNorAbel: Make food for tomorrow while waiting for delivery?
TXC2: TheMerricat I'd say be responsible
Jeezy56: nice lap!
TacitusVigil: Ian Horner, in care of Eggmelt logos, Victoria, BC, Ottawa, Canada.
GerrardUK: Fresh tyres and a repaired car seems to have done the job there
CaptainSpam: Siiiiiiiiiiick lap.
CaptainSpam: 3rd place now!
TXC2: fresh tires baby
TheMerricat: Yeah, I was thinking I should really be responsible.... adulting sucks. :P thanks @TXC2
CaptainSpam: You're getting better at both driving and not paying attention to us. :)
GerrardUK: There was damage to the front of the car that probably lost time in the last twisty section
SnowBuddy18: smoother Ianing is helpful
johnalogue: as a former tire service tech, I feel obligated to say that it is absolutely the tires and you should pay my former employers more money
Jeezy56: awww
PixelArtDragon: Goddammit Race Director!
TXC2: Fudge, that was gonna be a fastest lap
CaptainSpam: Well, to hell with you, too, Race Director, that was a spectacular lap.
PixelArtDragon: Robbed
SnowBuddy18: not robbed, the edge of the track is where it is for a reason
SnowBuddy18: staying within the outside bounds of the track is part of the course
adambomb625: If streamer doesn't win, it is robbed. This is known
TXC2: Lewd Kappa
Saunabath: Plus there was that XBow
NotCainNorAbel: The track always seems to be in front of us
johnalogue: yeah not on stream ian
RandomTrivia: lrrFINE
TXC2: !addquote (Ian) [now] I'm powered by toffee and speed.

TXC2: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer, means break time for YOU, so get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet. Don't forget to wash your hands!
RandomTrivia: !quote 7467
LRRbot: Quote #7467: "I am powered by licorice and speed!" —Ian [2021-01-23]
Jeezy56: I think there was a very similar quote added yesterday... yeah that
RandomTrivia: Ian is powered by a lot of things
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 Well surely that quote will never get taken out of context Kappa
Jeezy56: not that I'm complaining
Armyguy0: @RandomTrivia And speed
johnalogue: Ian needs a lot of power
RandomTrivia: I think it's great that we have 2 similar ones, it will help to keep people on their toes
TXC2: PharaohBender27 indeed Kappa
TXC2: right chat I'm off
PharaohBender27: Good night, @TXC2 !
Snowcookies: Night TXC2
TXC2: goodnight everybody, and thanks for streaming Ian
ehsteveG: o/
LordZarano: Licorice candy or Liquor-ish candy?
adambomb625: yes
RandomTrivia: Goodnight TXC2, take care!
SnowBuddy18: liquor-ish licorice candy and licorice liquor-ish cande
PixelArtDragon: There's a liquor that tastes like licorice, it's called arak
PharaohBender27: As I recall, absinthe has a bit of a licorice flavor
Bobtheninjagoldfish: I MADE IT
Lord_ZYRK: Anise, PharaohBender27
PharaohBender27: @Lord_ZYRK Right, that's what it is
SnowBuddy18: sambuca
Territan: Know the feeling. Meanwhile I'm having a pineapple-cocoanut soda myself.
Bobtheninjagoldfish: eh three of our players ghosted lol
MagisterMystax: Nice, I arrived just in time for the race
PharaohBender27: @Bobtheninjagoldfish Ooof
yalc321: Race time!
MagisterMystax: You reaching first place yesterday was amazing
VmKid: Talk to you later, Ian!
Bobtheninjagoldfish: Meh means I got here to watch, I'll live ;)
Territan: Have fun storming first place!
Saunabath: Now I really want licorice
Jeezy56: lol ok
Bobtheninjagoldfish: @PharaohBender27 eh. it was just a weird online thing, I'm not worried, tbh
RandomTrivia: That was easy!
VmKid: LUL
Territan: As long as the Race Manager doesn't comment, you should be fine.
adambomb625: 1 car destroyed, 20 more to go
Jeezy56: but they don't have the ponies of the GT86!
PixelArtDragon: Oh we Mario Kart now!
TacitusVigil: Now *this* is podracing!

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, teavian! (Today's storm count: 6)
Tiber727: On the one hand, the game could have called you out on your lovetap. On the other, it's stupid that he rear ends you into the wall and you get a penalty.
VmKid: Uhhhhhhh... one more?
VmKid: *Daytona voice* Rolling STAAAAAT
ky0dar: wait, i look away for a moment and we've started again?
Jeezy56: the over-under!
RaklarLS: good job AI, good job
Tiber727: Totally fair race.
Jeezy56: now with those pesky KTMs out of the way...
Saunabath: IMO, the KTM is not a GT car and it should not be in the class
Jeezy56: because it doesn't have a road version?
Saunabath: Yes
MagisterMystax: BOOM
RandomTrivia: *bonk*
Jeezy56: well it wasn't your fault
RealGamerCow: One more, that cluster at the beginning was not your problemn
PharaohBender27: I really hate when Twitch won't let me publish a clip and won't explain WHY katesRage
VmKid: Take a mulligan on the mulligan mulligan
adambomb625: Mull to 4?
RandomTrivia: In racing games one doesn't tend to think about save-scumming, buuuut.....
MagisterMystax: I feel like you can still make it to a decent place. This track is basically the Hornerheim ring
VmKid: Never Look at Chat seems like good advice in general
LordZarano: !chat
LRRbot: Seriously, just never listen to chat.
Juliamon: rayfkDont rayfkDont rayfkDont
Despoiler98: casual bonk into other racers
draxov: Does this support VR? that would be pretty cool combined with wheel and peddles
Jeezy56: quite the divebomb
johnalogue: @draxov pedals, to "peddle" is to try selling things
Jeezy56: yeah it does support VR
adambomb625: How can you get a penalty for going too fast? This is a race isn't it?
draxov: @johnalogue ah yes haha, we must peddle the VR 😂
txzen_: now thats pod racing
txzen_: so what's different than last week? gtr still?
Territan: It's a race, but it's still possible to operate the vehicle at speeds unsafe for the track.
RandomTrivia: Oh dear
txzen_: 2 wheel action
Jeezy56: it was fun carving through the field
Territan: Sometimes almost literally.
txzen_: project stunt car
Territan: Well, there's that fallback goal of "not last"...
txzen_: top 20 is achievable
draxov: project cars 2 much speed
Territan: How does Twitch's clipper choose the names for these things? Because that one seems almost prophetic.
RandomTrivia: @Territan You put in the name for it when you publish the clip
Juliamon: Territan I think they're in cahoots with LRRbot
Territan: Ahhh. That's a skill I've never mastered.
Jeezy56: yeah Aston Martin

PixelArtDragon: Oh no, my internet cut out for most of this race, what happened?
ky0dar: Oh, you say BIM and i think of that film The Apple
NotCainNorAbel: I just got Prime so I'm excited to watch it for the first time
elah806: Bim was the name of the henchman bat in the shockingly compelling direct to video Barbie Nutcracker
draxov: BIM is a file format to me :D
VmKid: Bim is the name of an occasional Wait Wait Don't Tell Me panelist OpieOP
TheMerricat: Barbie.. Nutcracker... Bat named Bim... I think I'm thinking of a completely different type of movie than what it must be....
txzen_: these turns al look so good
RandomTrivia: Welp
Jeezy56: loose yorri
62MGcobra: sad yorri
PaleGreySky: They used to call me Wiggly Front End in high school.
RandomTrivia: Fire that teammate!
VmKid: Not Last Place! DING!
Jeezy56: two of those crashes weren't your fault
TheMerricat: so how many points have we accrued this season?
bits4bytes subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 13 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, bits4bytes! (Today's storm count: 8)
txzen_: yeah just can't give SO much line to pass
txzen_: the course doesn't change just because someone in passable :)
ky0dar: i was about to say 11th isnt terrible
RealGamerCow: 6th here
txzen_: 1.37 was like a top 8 speed
txzen_: laptime I mean
draxov subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 30 months!
draxov: 30 months! So tense watching Ian take those corners so well! Good job!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, draxov! (Today's storm count: 9)
Jeezy56: I don't recall liking Oschershleben much
RealGamerCow: Oh that left into the long hairpin looks horrible
Saunabath: looks like a street circuit
Territan: Still need to see the egmelb logo again so I can get the eggmelt one right.
MagisterMystax: This music is so weird for this game
TheMerricat: Hot newcomer Quadro Baggins has managed to make #6 ranking in his first season, we are excited to see where he goes from here!
Thagnok: That is some surprising music right there.
ContingentCat: just win forehead
MagisterMystax: It sounds like it belongs in Hitman or something
PharaohBender27: Where are we now racing, again?
VmKid: Just don't lose 4Head
Saunabath: yeah the music is something else in PC2
Thagnok: Right!
Bobtheninjagoldfish: have we filled up on eggmelts?
Jeezy56: T1 and T2 are so tricky
RandomTrivia: @Bobtheninjagoldfish We filled up the pit crew with Egmelts, at least
Bobtheninjagoldfish: wait.. did I miss qualifying and the race? BEANS.
Lord_ZYRK: Or, alternative idea: DONUTS BAYBEEE
TheMerricat: wow that wasn't a tight corner.
PharaohBender27: Huh, so Oschersleben is in what used to be in East Germany, and this course has only been there since 1997.
PixelArtDragon: Wow, the track gets very narrow on some of those turns
RedPhoenixCasts: Track?
VmKid: The track managers are in kahoots
RedPhoenixCasts: what track is this?
TheMerricat: You know, I have to wonder, how does one 'design' a new race course? Is there a spec you have to adhere to? Or is it just "as long as it make a loop eventually"....?
Saunabath: first lap of the race is going to be a fustercluck
Jeezy56: I'm so medium on this track, it's fine but it's just not a lot of fun like Hockenheim
RandomTrivia: @Saunabath Isn't it always? :D
Arium26: Oschersleben, iirc
Jeezy56: there's a decent bit on the long course but this version is meh
TacitusVigil: Feline dirigible you say...
RockPusher: tiltyhPLS tiltyhEXTREME
TacitusVigil: Tax avoision.
Saunabath: @RandomTrivia Well yes, but this seems like it's going to be in its own league
TacitusVigil: Some say evasion. I say avoision.
ContingentCat: @TacitusVigil Ian isn't like most people
TheMerricat: the best part of a shell corporation is you get to play the shell game with the tax man. "Are my illegal gains in THIS shell or THAT shell?"
TheMerricat: I don't want to demoralize Ian, but given how the AI handle curves I see them massacring him on this track.
TheMerricat: lol
RandomTrivia: pls
VmKid: Ian
NotCainNorAbel: ysbrydPunjail ysbrydPunjail
Rogue_07: Ian, that's not irony-based uplifting, that would be pun-based uplifiting
Rogue_07: It's the same reason we should have sentient grizzlies serving in the armed forces
Rogue_07: They can bear arms
Bobtheninjagoldfish: does that mean ninja turtles can only start half-shell corporations?
draxov: octopus is the true corporate overlord, they cover themselves in shells as a defenfe
NotCainNorAbel: I'm now having that Paul/Graham conversation in my head about the puppet and their hurting of Ian.
draxov: *defence
TheMerricat: I still challenge anyone to face a mounted Calvary using bears.
Jeezy56: I thought partridges already had the monopoly on pears Kappa
ContingentCat: thankfully there's 4 so nobody gets left out
Jeezy56: I think the corners on this track are generally just too long and too slow to be fun
Jeezy56: and the same radius
Jeezy56: so it's just waiting on the throttle
Lord_ZYRK: TheMerricat do you mean human soldiers riding bears, or bear soldiers riding horses?
Jeezy56: the end of the lap isn't too bad
Saunabath: I bet the track used to be an airfield
Territan: Or beartaurs riding reverse centaurs?
draxov: Warhammer probably would have an answer for that
Lord_ZYRK: Frankly a horse that could have a bear mounted on it would be terrifying. That thing could probably kick a tank apart.
draxov: @lord_zyrk ah yes, the fabled anti tank horse
MagisterMystax: Had some of those in Civlization
Lokolos: Completely random question: what do you think of buying a bunch of land just outside of a rapidly expanding city and using it to pick up hobbies (I want to start a large garden to start, but there are a lot of options from there) and then sell that land when it almost certainly goes up in value a decade or so from now. That opportunity may have just landed in my lap.
Territan: Or at least an anti-infantry horse. Just dismount, smack its backside, and let it breakdance among the enemy troops.
TheElrad: wait, are we in 3rd?
Jeezy56: yup
Territan: Yep. 3rd. And this lap is looking clean and nice.
TheMerricat: @Lokolos A lot of folk around here in St. Louis made their money that way but you gotta be willing to accept that it might never actually be that valuable if stuff changes in the intervening years. Won't speak to the ethics of it, we all gotta live.
Saunabath: @Lokolos Depends what plans the city has for the area. In city the value of the land is defined by its neighbours
Territan: Seconded.
TheElrad: and which course are we doing today?
Jeezy56: this is Oschershleben
Jeezy56: but I might have spelled that wrong
TheElrad: Ostersleben?
MagisterMystax: Oscherleben
TheElrad: Oschersleben
Lokolos: @TheMerricat Yeah, always a risk with investments, the upside is that the land, and the house will be about what a pay per month for this 1 bedroom apartment I have in the city now.
Saunabath: The race will be Oh Scheisse Leben
Territan: Or Osterschlechen.
MagisterMystax: It's in Sachsen-Anhalt, most of which does look like the scenery we're seeing around this track in my experience
TheElrad: ah, so we're in the Eastern part of Germany today
DrLandmine: the forbidden sausagelol no penalty for that pit maneuver?
Lord_ZYRK: No better time to practice PIT maneuvers than mid-race lrrBEEJ
TheElrad: I've actually been in Sachsen-Anhalt, but in Dessau
BrandtGTS: Have you tried the game i VR?
Territan: And this track has a lot of tight corners.
TheMerricat: @Lokolos are you planning on living there or just using the land for investment and 'hobby' purposes, if you are planning on living there I would definitely make sure it's close enough for all the amenities you want and jump for it if so. If you are just planning on holding it and using it 'randomly' for stuff till you resell it I'd be a bit more cautious.
Territan: And yeah, VR could be fun with this, but keep a bucket handy.
ky0dar: i should dust off my psvr
draxov: using a modern headset would be best, like a tethered quest 2
NotCainNorAbel: Ian, still have the Mini? How has that been treating you?
RedPhoenixCasts: is this racing or practice?
draxov: the HTC vive is dated in its resolution
Saunabath: practice
Lord_ZYRK: Put an LED matrix on the front with animated eyes
TheElrad: have you considered you might get sick cause you're not actually moving but the VR makes your brain think you are moving?
draxov: ah yes the Facebook issue
draxov: that does really suck
BrandtGTS: I tried Project cars 1 in VR vive only uncomfortable when you spin out
TheMerricat: I thought that racing games were one of the 'better' type of games to play in VR because the visuals of the car interior help your head 'anchor' itself.
Lord_ZYRK: Especially companies like Facebook you shouldn't trust in general
DarkMorford: @Lord_ZYRK So you want to turn Ian into this? lrrBEEJ
RockPusher: Oh the company won't go away - they'll just terminate the support and infrastructure they have tied the 'hardware' to
TheElrad: wait, did that car just make a mistake and we overtook him caue of it?
Lord_ZYRK: DarkMorford I'm not saying we have to cover his nose and mouth. . .
Lord_ZYRK: but the skirt is a must
DarkMorford: LUL
TheMerricat: I still have to bite the bullet and build a PC capable of running the Valve index. I have the money and the time atm just not the confidence of picking the right parts at the moment.
RockPusher: The company going away in the FB case would have the loss of the VR as acceptable collateral damage
felipe_modesto: The fuzzy rearview mirror is so strange
draxov: I work in VR and it's a pain in the ass that we have to use Facebook for our development on it
ContingentCat: the cryptocurrency craze has died down
LordZarano: Startups go out of business or get acquired. Big companies discontinue support seemingly at random
VmKid: I have a Vive and was thinking of upgrading, but the $1000 price tag is probably not worth it for me. Not even the $279 for the controllers seems worth it.
TheElrad: now now Ian, some of them are strictly pyramid schemes that don't actually mine anything :p
RandomTrivia: That does seem excessive
RockPusher: I'm just hanging out for the resolution of the headsets to get to sufficient effective DPI that you can do virtual monitors with close to real world fidelity
RandomTrivia: in KWH? Fuck
kalecruch: bitcoin is able to process an astonishing 6 transactions every second though
NotCainNorAbel: This is why I bitcoin specifically is a scam at this point. Either you needed to get in early or get them other ways
TheMerricat: I understood the reasons why cryptocurrency became a thing and sorta agree that they probably need to be a thing, but I really don't like the implementation of "random calculations that do absolutely nothing" mean money.
VmKid: I think Crypto is cool from a technological standpoint but in practice, yeah the currencies can eat poo.
draxov: yeh the index is super expensive, I've had the privilege of trying most of the headsets, quest 2 is by far the most comfortable and affordable, the index is the best pure PC VR and the Vive Pro is good too
TheElrad: did you tell them how much fuel you want?
Pteraspidomorphi: I do not regret upgrading to the index controllers
Lord_ZYRK: The only thing more aggravating than my brother spending a stupid amount of money on a graphics card when building his PC so he could use it to mine when he's at work/asleep, but he bought a big budget curved monitor that's Freesync compatible WHEN HE BOUGHT AN NVIDIA CARD
TehAmelie: cryptocurrency is like someone went "what if we had money but for nerds?" and then reality went "sure but then you have to pay both income tax and the electricity bill"
Pteraspidomorphi: They track better and are lighter
PendelSteven: ndaThink
TheMerricat: I'm sorry @Lord_ZYRK
PharaohBender27: @TehAmelie I'd replace "nerds" with "insufferable libertarians" there myself :p
PendelSteven: 'Ello
RockPusher: The problems cryptocurrency solve don't outweigh the problems you have when you eschew the controls regular currencies had to create over history
CaptainSpam: Wow, that is a MEAN pit exit.
VmKid: TBF some FreeSync monitors do work with NVIdia cards now.
PendelSteven: Nürburgring?
NotCainNorAbel: enthusiasts.
Snowcookies: Ian "not sorry about what he does to your car" Horner
TehAmelie: maybe a little reductive but not as much as the people who bought what is currently millions of dollars in bircoin that they cannot access because they saved their passwords for it five hard drives ago
TheMerricat: @PharaohBender27 Insufferable nerd libertarians. Default Libertarians would generally not be capable of creating cryptocurrencies.
draxov: can I just say, sorting my laundry and why are all my socks not on pairs! :p
RockPusher: You'd be better leveraging the resources spent of cryptocurrency into regulating out from regular currency the issues you wanted to solve
Saunabath: Any of the cars or the bikes. Who in their right mind thinks that a premium brand can look ugly
Lokolos: @TheMerricat I'd be living there as well. My work approved permanently working from home and for some reason high speed internet has expanded faster than the water grid. Land comes with a well (with pump) and water rights.
TheMerricat: Where was it that I heard about a guy who is willing to pay something like $500,000 to a city if they let him dig through the city dump for a harddrive he through away almost a decade ago wiht bitcoins on it?
TheMerricat: threw away wevne
TheMerricat: even
NotCainNorAbel: The latest BMWs were made by in a vacuum and no one wants to say WTAF
MennoKnight42: eyes on the road, Horner!
TheMerricat: @Lokolos you are speaking of a dream I have. I'd grab it and hold on tight to it then :P
CaptainSpam: You've definitely been improving, Ian.
Lokolos: @TheMerricat I've arranged for my parents to set up a video call at the property tomorrow and we'll go from there.
draxov: I'm glad too! it's very fun to watch!
TehAmelie: i sometimes have dreams where i have only a limited time to stuff my backpack with money from some forgotten cache. cryptocurrency is like those dreams
chickenace11: Ithink that this proves almost any type of game could be a play it forward game
MennoKnight42: is this a qualifying session, or is the race just a qualifying session?
chickenace11: also hello everybody
TheMerricat: @Lokolos good luck :)
RandomTrivia: Hello chickenace11
couldntpickausername: man, anytime I watch a racing game it just makes me long for Burnout 3 to be ported to PC
Jeezy56: MennoKnight42 this is just practice
TehAmelie: except for using computing power to create the dream of money, i guess
SnowBuddy18: @MennoKnight42 this is practice before the qualifying session
MennoKnight42: ah
PendelSteven: Hockenheim
Saunabath: Have you played Art of Rally, Ian?
MennoKnight42: i have the other half of the setup that Ian is missing, the VR headset
RandomTrivia: That's easy for you to say!
RandomTrivia: lrrBEEJ
chickenace11: What I like about this is that I don't need to have watched the other streams to understand the game. I can come in and enjoy it with other people
Jeezy56: couldntpickausername YES! Please!
PendelSteven: with o?
couldntpickausername: I really don't like Burnout Paradise. and that crash simulator game that came out a while ago just doesn't feel the same.
DrLandmine: your front tires are looking pretty rough
Saunabath: It's a great little arcade rally game. Top down retro graphics and everything
PharaohBender27: You mean Oschersleben, lrrIAN ? It'd be pronounced along the lines of "oh-shaers-lay-ben"
Lord_ZYRK: Lokolos just make sure you understand what you're getting into with an onsite well.
PendelSteven: Motorsport Arena Oschersleben
PendelSteven: Found it
RandomTrivia: Oh no, we summoned Irish Ian!
TehAmelie: mm Burnout had such possibilities before they went for online
PharaohBender27: Second time was better, minus the accent :D
JadedCynic: thank you for the pron. guid @PharaohBender27
PharaohBender27: No problem, @JadedCynic - Studied German in college and spent a year abroad in Munich
PendelSteven: yes, Moh-tohr-spohrt Ah-ray-nah Oh-shure-s-lay-bun
MennoKnight42: maybe we should do a community game night for this game
MennoKnight42: i'd lose, but it'd be fun
Lord_ZYRK: Ian, just pretend you're speaking French with a bit of a slack-jaw and you're constantly trying to clear your throat while speaking MiniK
TehAmelie: Burnout Dominator i guess was the peak. would that all racing games had the option to blow your car up to kill your competitors
PendelSteven: 500 km from Utrech, middle of NL
Saunabath: If I'd have to choose between Art of Rally and the latest Dirt, I'd pick AoR
PendelSteven: Utrecht
PendelSteven: Well now
JadedCynic: Yeah, that's deutshe ;)
imgpw: LUL
TehAmelie: that's some good windscreen shatter, tbh
nemosyss: <message deleted>jdpsjpjjjsp00gåzpxxzcxcc''""xxxzxxxxnxxnxkzxxxX"""""""!"""""!"""!""!"!"""!!"!"!"""x! ZX znxn!zzn!"x"z: mm
Jeezy56: uh
TehAmelie: um
draxov: ouch
Lord_ZYRK: Somebody's cat just laid down on the keyboard
TehAmelie: thanks mods?
TheMerricat: Chat, this just popped up on my news feed, why am I not surprised: "Only 4% of Missourians have received their first COVID-19 vaccine shot, lowest rate in the US." :(
theblakdeth: just picked up WRC8 on steam sale, and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Didn;t really like the earlier WRC games, but it's certainly worth the $5 on sale
Jondare: i think someones kitty just took a stroll
Jeezy56: anyway Burnout 3 does work nicely on an emulator if you're willing to go that route
TehAmelie: if they're lucky they did not manage to post their password there
TheMerricat: hunter18
Lord_ZYRK: TheMerricat it is my understanding that Missouri is exactly as it sounds
odhtate subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 33 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, odhtate! (Today's storm count: 10)
PendelSteven: the smaller Oschersleben circuit, bypassing the Triple & McDonald's corners
Juliamon: None of it looked remotely like a password... hopefully
theblakdeth: do lefties also read backwards?
TehAmelie: hopefully
TheMerricat: @Lord_ZYRK There are a few bright spots in Missouri, but very few. Most of it is still living in 1950.
draxov: @juliamon that's what they want you to think!
JadedCynic: @Lord_ZYRK it's called "The Show-Me State" for a reason... :\
Lord_ZYRK: JadedCynic lewd
Juliamon: They also aren't following the channel, so it could just be random spam
JadedCynic: @theblakdeth no, we read correctly, y'all do it backwards Kappa
PendelSteven: so Hotel, Hasseröder, shortcut, Shell, Amman, Bauer & Zeppelin are the curves in the circuit
TehAmelie: let's hope so for all our sakes
JadedCynic: @Juliamon that's my assumption
PendelSteven: And now I guess somebody in chat didn't know that corners in circuits have names
JadedCynic: broken spambot maybe
PharaohBender27: I sure didn't, @PendelSteven
JadedCynic: hey since Ian won at Silverstone (and we're gonna rename it "Hornerstone") - that one bad corner is going to be renamed "Horner's Horn" :D
LordZarano: Looked too repetitive to be a generated password like U5=op4$i{6tU/Ef[
TehAmelie: Silverstone sounds pretty decadent, but then, what if we had a Goldstone?
TehAmelie: okay miss the Decadent Man
PendelSteven: Oh, sure,
PendelSteven: laybun
PendelSteven: Those are actually all English words
PendelSteven: Oh, sure, lay, bun
PendelSteven: close enough
JadedCynic: leben
JadedCynic: Oscheslaben - the track is named for the town it's next to
PendelSteven: Well, guess how the last syllable is pronounced?
PendelSteven: we spell e, but...
JadedCynic: dang, I left out an 'r' :(
PendelSteven: it's pronounce u
PendelSteven: like in English and in German
JadedCynic curses his dyslexic hands
Rogue_07: It's honestly too small for its job
Rogue_07: We have 26 letters and waaay more sounds
Rogue_07: We could use about 6 more vowels, for example
TehAmelie: we should use the celtic alphabet
Tiber727: @Rogue_07 As well as letters that are completely redundant. For instance, "c" is a "K" that's sometimes an "s".
TheWooglie: Rogue_07 it sounds good, but who's paying for all the new keyboards?
CaptainSpam: Okay, THAT was a fair penalty.
TehAmelie: where FF and LL are their own letters just like W and wovels are more plentiful
MennoKnight42: Ian "Almost a Disaster" Horner
Rogue_07: I learned about the origin of Bluetooth and it's runic symbol on the PPR!
PendelSteven: yeah, so many vowels
zolidaire: Cyrillic is good from what I've seen
Rogue_07: Also, waaaay harder to change English than just keyboards
PendelSteven: but on that this is why first and formost English should spell a where it's ah
PendelSteven: and not eh
PendelSteven: since eh is clearly spelled as some sort of e
Rogue_07: Ehhh....
zolidaire: I don't know much but I think it's all phonetic
Rogue_07: It can change organcially
Dog_of_Myth:'re not wrong
strebenherz: you're not wrong
Rogue_07: *organically
TacitusVigil: You would say that, with all your useless British u's
TehAmelie: Cyrillic has like 64 letters, it may be too much to foist on everyone
margieargie: I don't think Britain gets off scot free on that either <_<
JoannaTastic: It's never too late to get into the Shavian alphabet
Rogue_07: But English is far too widespread and decentralized for any top-down change
LuveenW: Hebrew?
TacitusVigil: Color needs no u!
PendelSteven: but if I were to spell end instead of and...
PendelSteven: so yeah
elah806: If we didn't change the language then King James couldn't have been divinely inspire to create the one true version
Tiber727: It's not just the U.S. ruining English.
Rogue_07: I can see a new punctuation mark happening, tbh
Rogue_07: again, organically
PharaohBender27: @Rogue_07 I remember once reading how Dewey (of the Dewey Decimal System) tried to make spelling match actual pronunciation, so like "Lodge" would be spelled "Loj"
strebenherz: the penny will never die as long as america takes breath
Dog_of_Myth: We need more Interobang usage
JadedCynic: Interrobang 4eva!!!
NotCainNorAbel: I think that is due to digitizing everything more than the US
RandomTrivia: Oof
Ivalenz_: Aren't emoji the new punctuation?
strebenherz: interobang usage?
elah806: Ian your auto-replaces are next level. I genuinely aspire to them
SAJewers: what about ⸮
CaptainSpam: How about using a compose key‽
TehAmelie: at this time i would like to point out a question only ever needs one question mark, and multiple question mark doesn't make it more questiony
zolidaire: what?! Wow!?
JadedCynic: @NotCainNorAbel would be put the blame for that at the feet of the Unicode Consortium!?
JadedCynic: @strebenherz - !? (interrobang)
PendelSteven: ?! is correct English, I'm pretty sure
abyssaldm: vroom vroom
strebenherz: apologies for the mispell
CaptainSpam: I do appreciate how there is a version of the interrobang for Spanish-derived languages. ⸘ ‽
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie haven't you ever screamed a question at someone? ;)
PendelSteven: and I know that in Dutch ! or !!! is correct, but !! not
TehAmelie: ?! is how we write it in sweden, at least
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun I disagree, with the internet and social media there have been huge changes to the English language, as a child the # was either a symbol that was on those 'foreign foods' that mom refused to buy at the grocery store and on phones and the @ was almost completely unknown to me. Now a days?
PendelSteven: I like the ! or !!!-rule
PendelSteven: since !! is used in programming
PendelSteven: in case you wonder
Tiber727: If anything, I'd say auto-correct and spell check will be the death of the English language. As long as it looks like a valid word no one cares if it's wrong.
LordZarano: "Today, most keyboards use one of three different physical layouts, usually referred to as simply ISO, ANSI, and JIS"
Rogue_07: My least favorite thing about English is "read/read"
TehAmelie: yes, but screaming is the purview of exclamation marks
strebenherz: Oh, it's a symbol by itself. ‽
Tiber727: I still get irrationally at mad at how many people don't know the difference between 'lose' and 'loose.'
strebenherz: totally didn't cheat and copy paste steal that from google.
xantos69: Except that NOBODY cares about "proper" English.
TacitusVigil: I will die on the hill that is the Oxford comma.
Tiber727: *I still get irrationally angry
PendelSteven: I'm confusing !! and || though
PendelSteven: || = or
TehAmelie: imagine a row of interrobangs. that's screamy nonsense
JadedCynic: @Tiber727 nah, your second statement cancels out the first - people ignore 'spell check' and go "ppl will get my meaning anyway" - also that sentiment is the LIFE of the language and it's future evolution
ky0dar: I'm really coming to appreciate the oxford comma
RandomTrivia: I care deeply about proper English when I'm speaking it
PendelSteven: inb4 chat uses this || that
Snowwraith: Look at how much of a struggle it's been that singluar "they" is "proper English".
RandomTrivia: But I understand completely why many people don't
xantos69: That is just a great way for me to tell which people I don't need to maintain close friendships with. Kappa
Capt_clown: Frankly, grammar I feel has taken a backseat to other subjects and I'm not sure how I feel about that
Juliamon: Like how people will casually use the singular they until someone asks them to
TacitusVigil: The singular they is a good argument of how the language *is* accepting it though.
kalecruch: I realy enjoyed Gretchen McCullogh's "Because Internet" on how language has changed in the internet eras
Snowwraith: And yet the same thing was said about singular you centuries ago.
elah806: I mean........there are some thorny justice issues wrapped up in what "proper" means in regards to language
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie welcome to how some people communicate, sadly - we STILL have to represent their speech
Rogue_07: Proscriptivism in language is pretty inherently conservative
Rogue_07: I'm not a fan
nyquister_: We are our own Tower of Babel situtation
LordZarano: Webster's main work, before his American Dictionary, was a book for schools. To teach (indoctrinate) the kids the "proper" American spelling
Saunabath: The most spoken English is broken English. As in, English as a foreign language
TheMerricat: I remember a video game for the Atari ST that was a mix between space sim and text based RPG that took me two years as a child to get past the custom officials at the space port because the programmer expected you to use two spaces after a period and a space after commas when typing responses.
RandomTrivia: As far as I'm concerned, singular "they" should actually be considered "Proper English", given that it is the most accurate pronoun for those who wish it
LordZarano: It is ALL Webster's fault
PendelSteven: I did fnd the so-called English disease in a Dutch book from the 60's yesterday
PharaohBender27: Going to be honest, I get irked by the use of "myself" instead of "I" or "me," though that seems to be the way the language is evolving katesShrug
ky0dar: how about all those people who try to invalidate AAVE?
TacitusVigil: Shakespeare used the singular they, so...good enough for me!
Rogue_07: Singular "they" is the best, and one of my favorite things about being an ESL teacher is that I get to teach people about it
KodeMage: Pokemon TCG coming up?
ContingentCat: My favourite thing about the "singular they" argument is how our "you" used to be the plural there was a singular you that was dropped because the plural was the formal (like in modern french) and people just used the formal to avoid insaulting people
Territan: English Pronunciation - "The Chaos" by Dr. Gerard Nolst Trenité
TheMerricat: @KodeMage I thought that was yesterday
PendelSteven: The English disease is spelling keuken machine instead of keukenmachine - which is a kitchen machine
Territan: (Wish I could paste the link too.)
JadedCynic: nicely done, ian!
TacitusVigil: @KodeMage That was yesterday.
PendelSteven: lit.
KodeMage: @TheMerricat lrr bot just tweeted it was happening now
Juliamon: It didn't though?
TheMerricat: @KodeMage mistweet I think. Ian goes till 6 for this then rhythm café.
KodeMage: @TheMerricat well, at 3:00
TehAmelie: of course nobody cares about singular "they". the idea to have to modify their language is just the most reasonable issue they have to which to attach their post hoc arguments with which they justify their fear of trans people
TheMerricat: !lasttweet
LRRbot: ~lasttweet

Tiber727: I understand and accept that language changes. For me though, I hate that that argument ignores whether any particular change is for the better.
ky0dar: gods, The Chaos is such a good poem
PendelSteven: and as you might have notice I often reverse it and do the Dutch disease with English: if it's a teapot, it's surely a coffeemaker and thus also a kitchenmachineplug
KodeMage: I'm looking at the bot's channel in Discord BTW: [3:01 PM] BOT LRRbot: LoadingReadyRun is live with Pokémon Trading Card Game on Play it Forward (Bonus Stream || Pokemon Trading Card Game)!
RockPusher: The one that still breaks my brain is the North American "on accident" over "by accident"
TheMerricat: wat u mean mate? u no like dis? @Tiber727
Juliamon: KodeMage That's because Ian didn't change the title soon enough
Juliamon: Notice that it says Play it Forward
PendelSteven: @Tiber727 you're not wrong there
JadedCynic: Wot u mean, mate? u no' like 'dis?
Territan: Also, left front is looking angry.
KodeMage: @Juliamon I see it says that I just don't know what it means that would exclude pokemon tcg :p
PendelSteven: I don't like dissing, no
Territan: Or it was...
Capt_clown: Can we all agree that "uwu" is not a word LUL LUL
Tiber727: For instance, the word "bemused" used to mean "confused" but people thought it meant "amused" so that became an accepted definition. So now when you read that some is bemused, it could mean they are confused or amused or confused and amused, and there's no good way to tell from context.
Juliamon: KodeMage With the switch to remote streams there's a problem with getting LRRbot to correctly sync information on the current stream
Rogue_07: @TehAmelie I actually disagree. Most folks opposed to changing their language don't want to make an effort to accommodate trans & NB folks. They prioritize their own laziness over the comfort of others. It's not *better*, but I don't think it's a post hoc reasoning.
TheMerricat: either way, no Pokemon TCG today :)
KodeMage: k, ty
PendelSteven: I think we've past that point capt
MennoKnight42 subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 49 months!
MennoKnight42: look at us all getting old
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, MennoKnight42! (Today's storm count: 11)
PendelSteven: yay
JadedCynic: oh don't worry, soon we'll reach the singularity, expand beyond this inhibiting cradle of a planet we've outgrown and are now harming with our presence, and we'll all be speaking Esperanto and it'll be perfect Kappa
PendelSteven: Bah Esperanto
margieargie: "Esperanto" and "perfect" never belong in the same sentence...
Juliamon: it's true tho
adamjford: I've literally never heard of "bemused" as anything else than "smugly amused"
PendelSteven: I think it even was invented by a Dutch
KodeMage: @JadedCynic we're not hurting the planet, the planet is mostly rock and DGAF, it will survive. It's us we need to worry about.
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic katesLol
PendelSteven: which would make sense given our situation
Juliamon: We are all getting old
TheMerricat: BTW chat, I know probably zero of you give a huff about Skyrim modding but in exciting news for inclusivity someone released a mod last week called "pronouns" that lets you assign your pronouns to your character and have the game treat you as those regardless of your body model/gender.
TehAmelie: i'm sure there are people who are just lazy. but they aren't going to make arguments to justify not modifying their language
LordZarano: @Capt_clown It's in at least 1 dictionary, even if it's just the Urban one
JadedCynic: oh good, at least SOMEONE got the sentiment of my troll :D
Ace__of__Hearts: dear doctor Ian are you driving a Saab?
PharaohBender27: @PendelSteven I thought it was an Austrian who came up with Esperanto? Pretty sure I saw a monument for him in Vienna once
Territan: And if you can't trust a dictionary in which one quarter of the words means "penis," then what will you trust?
RockPusher: TheMerricat nice - now if only every game did that natively
PendelSteven: It was Polishman, called L. L. Zamenhof
margieargie: Zamenhof was Polish
Dog_of_Myth: @TheMerricat Skyrim mods are the mods that keep on giving.
PendelSteven: Zamenhof could be Dutch, but yeah
MennoKnight42: does SAAB not make cars with this much gofast
PharaohBender27: Right, he was actually Polish, just looked it up
CaptainSpam: Also, no, we are not driving a Toyota Camry.
Juliamon: This race isn't purely about gofast, so jets aren't strictly necessary
PendelSteven: That's probably why I had his name in the back of my head which get it?
Ace__of__Hearts: are you guys streaming Destiny this week?
Dog_of_Myth: An Auspicious Toyota
Juliamon: !schedule
LRRbot: Want to know what's coming up? Check out for an interactive schedule, or for a Google Calendar version.
Ace__of__Hearts: one of those racing Jettas
Snowcookies: Whenever I hear TOyota I also hear Ian say Camry
Ace__of__Hearts: this is actually Ian's old Dodge Shadow he worked on it for years
Rogue_07: @TehAmelie I mean, the way I see it, they don't respect Trans folk enough to take a step that's super-easy to do. And they need to justify it in a way other than "trans folks are icky" or "I just don't want to" since we largely see such thought as rightly unacceptable excuses. So the justification of "that's the way it's always been" comes out, even thought that's blatantly untrue
ContingentCat: sounds good
Dog_of_Myth: Ian, you do you boo.
KodeMage: well, Ian, I must say your driving skills have improved since I last saw you playing long, long ago. Good job.
RockPusher: the extrav-Ian-ganza must continue!
MennoKnight42: we'll be offended but we'll do it in sync
TacitusVigil: Will you be staying in the office for it or switching out?
LordZarano: Anyone else here watch jan Missali? His video about spelling reforms is great
TehAmelie: Rogue_07, i think we're saying the same thing
TacitusVigil: Makes sense.
KodeMage: Do you know how many hours of driving you have in this game?
62MGcobra: at least 24 hours
Dog_of_Myth: Smooth
KodeMage: @62MGcobra he's done more than one lrrmans though, right?
JadedCynic: Oh Ian - I tuned in late, so never asked at the start (I'll check the vod) - did you get driving gloves after? LUL
TehAmelie: 10,000 hours is the general requirement of becoming a master of anything right
MennoKnight42: one more practice lap and then you get to forget it all before the race
62MGcobra: i don't know how many with PC2. last year was assetto corrsa
Ace__of__Hearts: I really hope race car drivers still make the sounds when they race
Rogue_07: @TehAmelie roughly translated, what I'm saying is "folks who refuse to make small changes in their language to accommodate others are assholes". I think we agree on that point lol
TehAmelie: oh yes
TheMerricat: I am god tier at procrastination and TF2 then :P
JadedCynic: @Ace__of__Hearts now that's my headcanon and the reason they REALLY wear the fire-retardant balaclavas under their helmets - to hide them going "brrrrr" LUL
TehAmelie: i'm just saying they refuse to make those changes BECAUSE they are what we in sweden call "boots filled with shit"
margieargie: Rain, rain, go away...
RockPusher: pre-wet tires
PendelSteven: goa goa goa
PendelSteven: talk about writing vowels
KodeMage: is the track actually we enough for wets? Is there an option for intermediates?
Territan: Wet, COLD tires. That can't be comfortable.
Rogue_07: Ultimately, debating what flavor of asshole is, in my mind, an unfun discussion, let's watch Ian drive cars
PharaohBender27: katesLol
Rogue_07: Toyota go brrr
Dog_of_Myth: I mean, who wouldn't.
JadedCynic: oh yeah - I remember reading about that
strebenherz: That's fantastic
PendelSteven: Don't get me wrong, I say goa instead of go, but
txzen_: water... uh oh
RockPusher: that's a good crapshot - pull into the pits "I need the wet tires", crew memeber pulls out hose and wets the tires
JadedCynic: bet Sam Jackson did too :D
Territan: "Flavor of asshole" seems more unpleasant to discuss than usual, really.
PendelSteven: Or rather, I make Americans often talk English whilst reading comic books
TehAmelie: hmm how useful would it be to a racecar to have a button that wets the tires?
Snowwraith: Holdo's actress in The Last Jedi could not stop making laser noises when she fired her pistol. It's eventually just left in the final cut.
Rogue_07: Sorry, Ian
elah806: RIP
KodeMage: Wait, was it not? because...
SnowBuddy18: my favourite two prequel facts are that Ewan McGregor kept making the lightsaber sounds, and Ewan McGregor's brother's RAF callsign was Obi-Two
PendelSteven: 2020 could have been a great year
TacitusVigil: Now it's the year of the Sea Shanty
KodeMage: that's what it felt like
mr_yarget: Cool. Good statement to come in on.
elah806: Well I mean Ian you did take that croissant photo in 2020
YurikosWife: wear mask, eat ass
JadedCynic: it'd need a water reservoir and a pump and hoses leading to the wheel wells and nozzles.... @TehAmelie I dunno about adding that..
Territan: Hey now, the sea shanties can be about eating ass.
KodeMage: @YurikosWife other way around?
TehAmelie: should we clip that for the highliights?
Territan: Also, they're not specifically "sea shanties."
KodeMage: eat mask wear ass
YurikosWife: @KodeMage Wear ass, eat mask?
ContingentCat: These are not mutually exclusive moods for the year
Jeezy56: oh look it's a KTM being an asshole
mr_yarget: Sir! Sir! Quit booping Ian.
txzen_: that dude just saved that corner lol
RandomTrivia: IAN NO
Rogue_07: Ian why
RockPusher: tiltyhPLS tiltyhEXTREME tiltyhPLS tiltyhEXTREME
TheMerricat: @PendelSteven tbh, the seeds of the horror show that 2020 became were in place long before it started, I don't think there was any way to save it.
graal_smith: I think Ian has been playing a bit too long
PendelSteven: in Esperanto
txzen_: pirates love booty
LordZarano: !TOS
RandomTrivia: A bit?!
Territan: Look up "Adam Neely tiktok sea shanty" on YouTube. Otherwise, I'm not posting the link.
TheElrad: we should probably pit

RockPusher: !findquote jail
LRRbot: Quote #6665: "Put me in forklift jail!" —Ian [2019-12-29]
elah806: I will quote today's highlights and remind you that you need to be put in jail for the words that come out of your mouth
Ace__of__Hearts: playing a lot of Destiny lately and I bet guardians make gun sounds in the crucible that's why you can't see through their helmets.
Darleysam: nah, it's a trad, you can do as much as you like
RandomTrivia: I'm not clipping that
Territan: I still don't know how to make a clip.
TacitusVigil: "Ian, uh...why did we get this strike from Twitch and YT?" - Graham, probably.
RandomTrivia: Cori knows better than to let Ian get that in the Reel
JadedCynic: Colin 'Obi-Two" McGregor retired in 2007, tho; he reached the rank of Squadron Commander in 2002 (I was hoping he got Air Marshal or similiar so we could techincally call him "General Kenobi" ;) )
PendelSteven: @TheMerricat I know what you mean, but well, I mean... It could have been great, viewing from I dunno 2015
Ace__of__Hearts: is this against PC or other players?
KodeMage: Soon may the crapshot comes bringing us comedy, memes and fun
SnowBuddy18: maybe the 2020s should be the decade of eating ass
TheElrad: aren't you still on slicks
MennoKnight42: he changed
MennoKnight42: almost didn't but did change
RockPusher: !quote 7454
LRRbot: Quote #7454: "I need to be put in jail for the words that I say." —Ian [2021-01-16]
BirkaBirkowski: @snowbuddy18 why stop after this decade?
mr_yarget: you changed, man. You used to be on slicks.
RockPusher: I need to memorise that quote number
PendelSteven: Also, why all this talk about arse?
txzen_: pinball action
TacitusVigil: @JadedCynic This means that his brother has to salute him. I'm sorry, that's just rank.
KodeMage: one day when the laughing is done we'll take our bits and go
txzen_: is the steering messed up?
Kumakaori: hard slicks != intermediates/ wets <<;.
TheMerricat: @Territan there/should be a clapper board icon on the video UI when you hover the mouse over the stream. Click that, then a window pops up with the past so many minutes of stream and a timeline below it with a 'view window' move the view window to cover the part of the clip that you want to save and name it in the appropriate box, then click the publish button.
JadedCynic: @TacitusVigil I kinda imagine he might every now and again, just for laffs
Snowcookies: Driving in the Rain
TehAmelie: Hard Slicks is my porn star name (not really)
Ace__of__Hearts: set it to freezing rain and just watch everyone just start spinning everywhere
Rogue_07: He was definitely General Kenobi
Kumakaori: we seem far too skaty to be on the right tire.
TacitusVigil: The masters were generals and padawans were commanders, right?
Rogue_07: No, they had army/navy divisions
KodeMage: Yeah, he was the grand commander of the army of the republic wasn't he?
JadedCynic: Ewan got General, but Colin only made ....Sqn Leader - raf is weird - guess it's Major?
Ace__of__Hearts: Kenobi was a general Aniken was a commander
I_Am_Clockwork: the rep def had an Army and a Navy
Rogue_07: Jedi just sorta did everything
PendelSteven: He's an Officer of the Order of the British Empire
mr_yarget: it could be like the People's Republic of China. The People's Liberation Army Navy
TacitusVigil: And they had ground, navy, marines, and special forces I want to say?
PendelSteven: McGregor that is
KodeMage: There's a navy only. Since it's a space army, they have troops, obviously, but the space ships are the most important part.
Rogue_07: Anakin was also a General, I believe
Jeezy56: those tyres just don't want to warm up
Rogue_07: Ahsoka was a Commander
TacitusVigil: I think all Jedi outrank clones?
Territan: Just to make sure it doesn't work: Here's that link on the music theory behind Tiktok's newest craze:
Ace__of__Hearts: He was a Knight not a Master like Kenobi
PendelSteven: Ewen McGregor is an Officer of the Order of the British Empire
KodeMage: Obi-wan our ranked Cody serveral places.
PendelSteven: IRL
JadedCynic: @PendelSteven moot
TehAmelie: wait, the Jedi have a recognizable military command structure? everything i knew about space wizards is wrong
KodeMage: out ranked*
TheMerricat: "Jedi General—Jedi Knights and Jedi Masters Jedi Commander—Jedi Padawans, superior to clone officers and subordinate to Jedi Generals. They had authority to lead a regiment."
Territan: Okay, no, remove the &t=826s and you'll have a good time with that link.
mr_yarget: Having all Jedi be generals makes me nervous. Like the Napoleonic British Army.
I_Am_Clockwork: Even the padawan's seemed to have command authority over the clones
LordZarano: @Jeezy56 They're water-cooled
elah806: I'm sure there's a 20-minute scene we all collectively blacked out of our minds from Attack of the Clones where someone stands before the Jedi council and says "as you know, the command structure of the Republic armed forces is as follows"
TacitusVigil: @TehAmelie No, it was just sort of a defaulting of "I guess they're in command" and part of Palpatine's plan to put them in the field and the responsibility of the war on them.
Gen2Gengar: Honestly, if the road is as slippery in real life, I have no idea why they would let any race happen during rain
TheMerricat: bleh my copy and paste didn't work right.
ContingentCat: oh ok Kenobi was a general, I thought you meant McGregor was a general in like the British(?) army
SnowBuddy18: Anakin was also a Jedi General
JadedCynic: I'll have to go watch that 2010 doc Colin & Ewan did about the Battle of Britain, and watch for them reacting to each other ;)
TheMerricat: Jedi General—Jedi Knights and Jedi Masters
TacitusVigil: Palpatine basically highlighted every failure of the Jedi in command of the GAR and downplayed their successes in the press.
TheMerricat: Jedi Commander—Jedi Padawans, superior to clone officers and subordinate to Jedi Generals. They had authority to lead a regiment."
Ace__of__Hearts: I'm pretty sure Asoka gave Rex orders at some point?
Territan: Because the box is full they're just going to take you straight through, aren't they?
mr_yarget: What the crap?!
mr_yarget: It just yeeted you
RandomTrivia: lrrFINE
PendelSteven: I should become a Patreon of LaserTime and listen to Sick of Star Wars :)
JadedCynic: nope-car.gif
TacitusVigil: "But I *just* stopped in!"
Ace__of__Hearts: yeah imagine if once the Pit Crew was just like "Nah"
Phailhammer: Ah, the return of Nega-Japan. lrrBEEJ
mr_yarget: Box this lap! Pit crew: I dun wanna.
TacitusVigil: The "moist" warning just turned on.
SnowBuddy18: @Ace__of__Hearts Jedi Commanders outrank everyone except Jedi Generals, and Padawans are Jedi Commanders
RockPusher: Moderately Moist
Territan: Driving in this dampness in a bunged-up car just makes it worse.
Territan: And ditto @TacitusVigil's moistness.
Territan: Wait, no, that's terrible.
TacitusVigil: The pit is very moi-
Snowcookies: As they say on James' stream: back to the pit
Duven60: I find racing games' snow/ice condition/weather races the most fun
PendelSteven: lrrFINE chainbGO
Ace__of__Hearts: UMM
RockPusher: lrrSPOOP
RandomTrivia: Huh
RandomTrivia: Interesting
strebenherz: You are now a ghost car
mr_yarget: That just happened. You became one with the competitor.
PendelSteven: I'm tired of chaning tyres
TacitusVigil: Can we just replace the entire car?
JadedCynic: ♫slip-sliding away....slip-sliding away♫
TacitusVigil: You get out, walk to a new one, keep going?
Territan: "I see non-hit-boxed people."
Ace__of__Hearts: "That Car's been dead for 10 years"
TacitusVigil: Time to get some driving gloves. :D
TehAmelie: in the movies, the jedi operate somewhat like the knight templars in real history. actually a lot like them, what with the moral precepts and enforced poverty exclusiveness and stuff
PendelSteven: Just watch lots of old films and you'll see enough dead people
Ace__of__Hearts: also the Jedi own Cyprus
PendelSteven: And Cyprus talks Esperanto
PendelSteven: sure
ContingentCat: it's ok, time isn't real
TacitusVigil: @Ace__of__Hearts And Malta
Territan: Is it wrong that I want to see the Star Wars/Christine crossover? Narrator: Yes. It turned out it was VERY wrong.
Lord_ZYRK: Ian, stop getting displaced in time. It's bad for your heart.
Ace__of__Hearts: right I meant Malta
PendelSteven: Guernsey?
PendelSteven: Jersey?
Ace__of__Hearts: no I did mean Cyprus
mr_yarget: The worst car I ever drove was a 1998 Ford Escort with bald tires. The thing would spin its wheels at 65 on the interstate the second it touched a rain drop. I feel like Ian feels that kind of pain right now.
TacitusVigil: @Ace__of__Hearts Oh, you were right, I was just throwing in Malta too
PendelSteven: Right, Guernsey and Jersey are owned by the Sith. Must be.
PendelSteven: (European tax heavens)
PendelSteven: ("heavens")
TheMerricat: The thing I don't like about the Jedi is if they were as incompetent and blind as they were in the prequels, how the hell did they manage to become a force in the Republic before that. I know someone had to hold the idiot ball for Palatine to step in and be there for the OG three but the level of "we are so rooted in the ground we completely played ourselves" the council represents....
JadedCynic: @PendelSteven "haven"
PendelSteven: myeah
TacitusVigil: It's too bad that George Lucas doesn't own Star Wars anymore, Ewan McGregor is getting old enough to be CG'd into episodes IV, V, and VI Kappa
mr_yarget: The AI just ignores rain? Thats...really poor gameplay balancing.
Jeezy56: apparently only if the weather changes, it should be ok with consistent rain
TheElrad: @loadingreadyrun I think despite changing you were still on slicks till the pit
Mysticman89: Ai notoriously cheats in basically every racing game
PendelSteven: somehow I feel that could have been a joke once: ha. A CG'd Scotsman, who'd want to see that? :)
TehAmelie: there are so many books that could be written about each of the things in Star Wars that make no sense except they're cool
PendelSteven: sowwy
Lord_ZYRK: I swear to grod Tacitus I will beat you with a garden gnome
TacitusVigil: :D
Tiber727: My final project in college for game programming was making a racing game. Good racing AI is hard.
TacitusVigil: I will say that McGregor seems to genuinely love Star Wars while Guinness was more "Listen, it was a few paychecks, leave me alone."
TheMerricat: Hey, to be fair Disney did bring back LucasFilms for video games, we George could always get back involved with SW assuming he wants that level of pain from his fans again.
PendelSteven: Disney also brought Star Wars back to Mahvel
TacitusVigil: I mean, Harrison Ford did, he was a carpenter. Kappa
JadedCynic: Sir Alec thought it was just a flash in the pan...
TacitusVigil: He *made* Star Wars.
JadedCynic: @TacitusVigil nah, he was a carpenter in American Grafitti - got promoted to cast for a 'cameo' :D
Lord_ZYRK: Which is why a brother and sister getting VERY TOO CLOSE happened
TacitusVigil: @JadedCynic Oh right. :D
TacitusVigil: I assume Christopher Lee was glad to be remembered as Dooku and Saruman and not just Dracula.
RandomTrivia: It was the same with recording the soundtrack. At the first session they sat down with music from this guy called John Williams who did Superman and nothing else.
TacitusVigil: And of course...Scaramanga!
PendelSteven: talk about things that don't make sense, yes, ZYRK
RandomTrivia: And then..... it was iconic
SnowBuddy18: this weird ass sci-fi movie that Sir Alec didn't like, but thought it would do well, so he got a cut of profits
Jeezy56: that felt like it was a pretty good lap but the time wasn't there
TheMerricat: Guinness really didn't hate it as much as he really didn't see why it was so big. If he hated it he wouldn't have negotiated for as much of a percent of the movie profits as he had. That's how he made his riches IIRC
PendelSteven: Star Wars is like a 60's... Alright, 70's comic book
mr_yarget: Christopher Lee could have been remembered a thousand different ways and he would have still been amazing.
TacitusVigil: Christopher Lee basically got emotionally blackmailed into doing more Dracula movies than he wanted to. He was afraid that he was forever typecast b/c of it.
TacitusVigil: "Sure, you don't have to do the movie, but we'll have to fire the crew and cast, so..."
serramarkov: Obi Wan is more likable than Yevgraf.
Tiber727: Even I think that Star Wars is good, but not as good as the size of its audience would suggest.
Jeezy56: somehow didn't get pinged for that one
PendelSteven: Right, that make sense @TheMerricat
Lord_ZYRK: Not knowing they were making Star Wars is also why the first one is basically the only one that's a complete film on its own.
mr_yarget: In his 80s Christopher Lee makes a metal album where he has spilled the blood of the saxon men.
Dog_of_Myth: Yeet that lap
RockPusher: Thank you Ian - see you in a moment lrrHEART
ContingentCat: thanks Ian
TheMerricat: And to be fair to Alec, his 'dislike' was more for the fact that he though George's writing was shitty and was getting tired of getting rewrites all the time. Both of which are extremely valid complaints about the production of New Hope
PharaohBender27: Thanks for the stream, lrrIAN ! lrrHEART
mr_yarget: Hey, sounds good. Ian, man. I love watching you play racing games.
PendelSteven: Right. And we will see you in a few minutes.
Texan_Reverend: Whooo more racing!

PendelSteven: So take a break, but stay here
TacitusVigil: @TheMerricat That's fair, too.

TehAmelie: i still like this observation what Bram Stoker's Dracula was set at the time just about after Coca-Cola unleashed the original re Cope, cocaine coke

PendelSteven: Glad I missed that
