    [marto] : I write software for the Nuclear and banking industries at the moment.
    [clinton] : nuclear and banking - interesting combination
    rhesa hopes marto never confuses interest rates and decay rates
    [imp] : atomic transactions++

    [ jdporter ] : for P anti-D3-branes the probe approximation is not good, there is a competing effect which can overcome the desire of the anti-D3s to embiggen: their attraction towards the wrapped D5s. Hence, the non-supersymmetric states would naively be meta-stable.
    [ dewey ] : boy did I ever come into this conversation at the wrong time...

    [ thezip ] : thezip moondances
    [ injunjoel ] : injunjoel hands thezip a belt and tells him to pull his pants up.
    [ thezip ] : thezip points out that it is quite impossible for his trousers to be down, since he is holding his crotch already
    [ injunjoel ] : injunjoel points out to thezip that holding ones crotch does not imply that ones pants are up... the possibilities are left as an exercise for the reader :)

    [ SFLEX ] : what should a perl programers resume look like?
    [ Petruchio ] : Like line noise, of course.

    [props]: castaway is a bot ?
    [tye]: s/is a/has a/; inheritance--

    planetscape coils into a ball and goes to sleep
    tye . o O ( dragonball zzzzz ? )

    [Corion]: Corion rejoices. My new phone has arrived :) Except that it has a singapore power adapter ...
    [Anno]: that'll be some extension cord

    [Unforgiven]: alarm(0);
    [tye]: Unforgiven has an additive identity crisis?

    [Nalababu]: how do I compare one column of array to another and print those values that match?
    [jkva]: We use 2 people. If we go down into a cellar we have a third person 'feed' it.

    This was a case of a hilarious juxtaposition arising from the collision of two independent simultaneous conversations.

    [castle]: I am a new user ... and I've posted a perl doubt
    [planetscape]: oh no, a doubt!?
    [planetscape]: despite this being a Monastery, we do not actually deal in matters of faith, castle. Questions, OTOH...

    [ambrus] shakes fist towards computer
    [tye]: just roll the dice

    Voronich feels oddly soiled, having just typed man touch at a prompt.

    [Voronich] has decided that his next lathe project is chopsticks.
    [marto]: you're going to play a piano with a lathe?
    [Voronich]: it's either that or a tesla coil,
    [jdporter]: you're going to play a piano with a tesla coil?

    [clinton] apologises to all and sundry for his base humour
    [Corion]: clinton: You should know that the humor here is purported to be more acidic, so pouring base humor here makes for an explosive mix ;)
    [clinton] bubbles over

    [moritz]-> lunch
    [LanX] prefers lanx <- lunch

    [moritz]: if you need to hide some code to keep it "secure", you have a problem anyway
    [theorbtwo]: moritz, yes, and we do have a problem anyway.

    perl.j: How was PerlMonks made.
    Your Mother: perl.j: In six days. The details are fuzzy to this day.
    perl.j: Is there a node with some kind of answer?
    runrig: Many nodes have some kind of answer
    Your Mother: tye is the node with the answer but sadly there is no standard interface.

    Xiong: Laugh if you like. My tool is firming up. I feel ready to prematurely release.

    thezip: So why do they call it the "God" particle?
    thezip: Is that the one that went faster the than speed-of-light a few weeks ago?
    Voronich: nope. That was tomorrow.

      [jedikaiti]What the goofball do now, YM?
      [jedikaiti]jedikaiti works on how to write "Shiney!" in Gallifreyan
      [Your Mother]
      [Your Mother]Hard core. Hard. Effing. Core. To quote Kubrick.
      [shmem]Your Mother, you know the statistics of people killed by firearms in the US. Celebrity doesn't appeal to me.
      [Your Mother]
      [Your Mother]The US is only 24th for murder in the world FWIW. So not even top 10%. :P
      [Your Mother]We could be #1 if we all pitch in!
      [talexb]Whoa. Ugly.
      [shmem]ok. Then lets subsume all those not being murdered by gunfire in the US as colateral damage, or happy enders.
      [shmem]s/all those/all those killed by gunfire but/
      [shmem]I'm so sick of the US officials hypocrisy. Obama, to start with. Nobel peace price. Signs off killing requests with drones, no investigation, no trial, no nothing. Went wrong? Oops *shrug*
      [Your Mother]Wow! Just did the math. We'd have to have 290,000 murders a year to become #1.
      [shmem]Your Mother, please post that math on your scratch pad. Thank you.
      [shmem]Your Mother: and who is #1 now, exactly?
      [Your Mother]perl -le 'print 319_000_000 / 100_000 * 90.4'
      [Your Mother]Honduras is apparently #1 and their rate is 90.4 per 100K.
      [shmem]what's that data, what sources?
      [Your Mother]US is about 9/100K so 10 times more. US has about 30K murders, bit less I think.
      [Your Mother]Just wikipedia/google. I used stats master or something to come up with the 24th. That was a while back. Don't have that link handy.
      [jedikaiti]And with that I am taking my rum and wandering off. Ciao, Monks!
      [LanX]LanX U.S. Has More Guns, But Russia Has More Murders
      [LanX]YM are you proposing an exchange program? :)
      [tye]so it is hypocritical to win a nobel prize and then kill people? or to accept a nobel prize and then kill people? I agree with the criticism of drone madness, I just don't get how it is hypocritical.
      [Your Mother]Oh, I'm sorry, murder rate was 9 in the 90s. Much lower now.
      [LanX]shmem, did you move to the states or why do you care about their population control policy? :-D
      [Your Mother]Exchange, eh? I think the US has learned a lot from Russia. Like how to go to Afghanistan … and bury your empire in debt and int'l hatred. Wait… did I say that out loud… Damnit!
      [shmem]tye, I suppose that the leader of the US has got at least 2 brain cells to rub together in order to experience sparkling evidence.
      [LanX]FWIW I've been told that since t the fall of the Berlin wall 1% of the former Soviet population was killed.
      [Your Mother]Meh, Stalin would ask what the hold-up is.
      [LanX]sad story ...
      [Your Mother]Sorry, getting cynical today without Spock.
      [tye]It surely doesn't help that we've instituted a policy where the CIA getting to present "its side" to the President at the start of every single day.
      [shmem]tye: so, that sparkling should tell him that terror begets terror, and that murder begets murder. That simple. If this guy doesn't grok that, ... ah well. no. I won't debate.
      [Your Mother]shmem: FWIW, I’ll go full tin foil hat with you on this topic.
      [LanX]Russia under Jeltsin was wild west...
      [tye]oh, yes, I completely agree on that!
      [LanX]Nobel prize was ridiculous, but I've already seen proven murderers getting one, so what...
      [tye]"drone madness" and lots of other military nonsense just adds fuel to the terrorism fires.
      [tye]I still haven't gotten around to reading, but I still plan to.
      [Your Mother]The prize was strange though. The largest military in the world actively engaged in two wars and a dozen secret ones with torture and black site prisons… a prize in the midst of that was the biggest slap in the face peace could ever receive.
      [tye]but I don't see why you are singling about the President when 66% of the US populace wants ground troops now. (or something like that)
      [tye]yes, I also agree that the nobel prize was strange.
      [Your Mother]Not singling anyone out. Except maybe Cheney. :P Plenty of willing participants.
      [shmem]tye, well... sort of "yes we can" and expecting of him being a Zaphod Beeblebrox
      [tye]not you, Your mother, shmem.
      [Your Mother]He campaigned on a platform of accelerating Afghanistan so the people heard what they wanted not what he was saying.
      [shmem]you know, knowing and not knowing and sneaking that "yes we can" through
      [Your Mother]There were three anti-war candidates back then, the first time. Two dems. No one made it through primaries.
      [shmem]Your Mother: why? lack of... what?
      [Your Mother]Votes ostensibly. Part support in point of fact.
      [Your Mother]Sorry: Party support.
      [tye]well, Obama was *relatively* anti-war. And now he's flipped and gotten more pro-war (which I think is a mistake and is disappointing as well).
      [Your Mother]He was entirely pro-war with regards to Afghanistan, saying we needed more troops etc. Everyone only heard the Iraq noise and ignored his history.
      [Your Mother]Afghan civilian deaths are record numbers now.
      [Your Mother]AND they are probably undercounted since any male 14+years-old is considered a combatant.
      [shmem]tye, military-industrial complex. That's all there is.
      [tye]and the drone stuff is morally worse than the wars and perhaps feeds terrorism more, though is probably fiscally less stupid.
      [Your Mother]Yeah, probably…
      [shmem]shmem waves to the audience. faling asleep... good night
      [Your Mother]Though I'm not drawing any measures. Wrong is wrong.
      [Your Mother]The fact that everyone has a comfort level for how many children the US military slaughters… that's … what can even be said?
      [tye]yep. the wars and the drones are both wrong and stupid.
      [Your Mother]SORRY!!! Too politik. Going to write code.
      [shmem]Your Mother, even your code is a political issue. cu
      [tye]but the people to criticize for pushing such goes way beyond Obama. It is easier to call who to not criticize on that point.
      [tye]and I find it less stupid and less wrong than torture
