* diana_coman stops own draft and goes to read the new article. [09:49]
mp_en_viaje: sorry [09:52]
diana_coman: not at all, I can certainly do with more clarity on the whole thing (hence drafting in the first place) [09:55]
mp_en_viaje: my pleasure then :p [09:57]
diana_coman: :) [09:57]
* mp_en_viaje shall bbl. [12:01]

BingoBoingo: Wb mp_en_viaje [20:23]
mp_en_viaje: sooo... did i miss anything ? [20:23]
diana_coman: the silence! [20:24]
BingoBoingo: Not particularly. Did IRL'ing. The damned's counsel tried to call my counsel when he was out of the office. [20:24]
mp_en_viaje: they don't do the whole secretary thing down there huh [20:25]
BingoBoingo: Well, they didn't want to talk to the secretary. [20:25]
mp_en_viaje: im reminded of this ancient paul newman thing, he's a drunk lawyer, picks up some tort case. [20:25]
mp_en_viaje: not a great film, but holy god did old new york breathe through the background. [20:25]
mp_en_viaje: anyways, my voyages are now concluded! [20:28]
BingoBoingo: Aren't you a little young to be ending the voyages plural? [20:28]
mp_en_viaje: well... hm. what i mean is, i'm back at eurocastle mp, rather than on the road. [20:28]
mp_en_viaje: 3 layers of voyage! [20:28]
BingoBoingo: Ah. The layering, it works! [20:29]
BingoBoingo: As long as it isn't too rounded [20:29]
mp_en_viaje: erryone here very fucking exciting to hear from me for some reason, shall be doing a buncha rounds of coffees and adventuretellings in the coming days. [20:29]
BingoBoingo: Nice. The meat networking here is ongoing, but far more productive than when I got off the plain with the wrong language loaded. [20:30]
mp_en_viaje: florimund did 20k kilometers in ~month. i'm talking to like, pro cabbies etc, "how much did you do since you saw me off ?" "umm... 11k or so" "pfff....lightweight!" [20:32]
mp_en_viaje: fun with pairs of girls. it pays! think, i can drive perpetually, there's always someone resting! [20:32]
BingoBoingo: lol [20:33]
mp_en_viaje: i'm totally spoiled for any kind or manner of car usage hence. [20:34]
mp_en_viaje: !!up sensiblemn [20:35]
deedbot: sensiblemn voiced for 30 minutes. [20:35]
mp_en_viaje: and who might you be sensiblemn ? [20:35]
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, you realise, you'll have to read all this weird crap in like a decade or w/e ? [20:47]
mp_en_viaje: well, not have-have, i suppose, but... [20:47]
feedbot: << Bingology - BingoBoingo's Blog -- Peso Watch October 2019 Edition [20:51]
mp_en_viaje: anyway, to put at least one rng'd insanity to rest explicitly : i work women rather than men not because women are weaker than men, but because women are stronger than men. if this weren't the case i'd simply be gay, no question about it. [20:52]
BingoBoingo: Going from the muted human sexual dimorphism in Angloland to Urug land where the dimorphism is more pronounced... The greater strength of women is clear. [20:58]
BingoBoingo: Even pichis carrying everything they own everywhere don't come close to the routinely heft payloads the tiny mommies tote around. [21:09]
mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, so paul scofield (as a most excellent sir thomas more) talks to his daugther : [21:09]
mp_en_viaje: "Father, there's a new act going through parliament. And by this act, they're going to administer an oath about the marriage." [21:10]
mp_en_viaje: "On what compulsion is the oath?" [21:10]
mp_en_viaje: "High treason." [21:10]
mp_en_viaje: "But what is the wording?" [21:10]
mp_en_viaje: "Do the words matter? We know what it means." [21:10]
mp_en_viaje: "Tell me the words. An oath is made of words. It may be possible to take it." [21:10]
mp_en_viaje: "Take it?" [21:10]
mp_en_viaje: "And if it can be taken, you must take it, too." [21:10]
mp_en_viaje: "No!" [21:10]
mp_en_viaje: "Listen, Meg. God made the angels to show him splendour. As he made animals for innocence and plants for their simplicity. But Man he made to serve him wittily, in the tangle of his mind. If he suffers us to come to such a case that there is no escaping, then we may stand to our tackle as best we can. And yes, Meg, then we can clamour like champions, if we have the spittle for it.But it's God's part, not our own, to bring ourselves to such a pass. [21:10]
mp_en_viaje: Our natural business lies in escaping. If I can take this oath, I will." [21:10]
diana_coman: ahaha. [21:11]
diana_coman: it would also be rather boring otherwise. [21:12]
mp_en_viaje: simple yet boring. [21:12]
diana_coman: there's all sorts of simple and not all of it boring that there though would be the boring-simple, more like the simple remains of a cut-out than the simple path to the core of an intricacy. [21:14]
feedbot: << Qntra -- Chile Cancels APEC Summit Over Transit Fare Rebellion [21:14]
mp_en_viaje: in any case more never looked as splendid as when scofield dressed up in him. [21:14]
diana_coman: quite. [21:15]
mp_en_viaje: o btw, i nearly forgot! hey trinque , are alf's funds confiscated yet ? partay ? [21:31]
mp_en_viaje: but seriously : asciilifeform has over ~all the other morons of his ilk (though they prefer to call themselves "engineers" or w/e) the significant superiority that he wants out of his idiocy at least to the degree of talking about it, contrasted to the more customary "keeping to themselves". [21:31]
mp_en_viaje: i had no intention to negrate him at the onset i still have no intention to, notwithstanding he's spewing all sort an' manner of insanity -- this not because it's laughably ineffectual an' self-defeating, but because i don't believe in damnation by quality. [21:31]
mp_en_viaje: i admit that he doesn't sound altogether sane, an' if you wish to take it as a poor reflection on my judgement that i permit insanity to stand in the light i'll have to bear it the alternative strikes me as outright perversity and i dun wanna. [21:31]
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: it is difficult to resist a good ol'fashioned gloves-off flamefest , but i give my word re to not spam your chan ( in fact will be mostly afk for next coupla d. ) [21:34]
mp_en_viaje: all the better. [21:34]
mp_en_viaje: an' now, time for a nice long bath with a bottle of pelin rosu de urlati (man... that's something everyone gotta try sometime). [21:51]
mp_en_viaje: so.. bbl [21:51]
BingoBoingo: Enjoy [21:52]
mod6: trinque: Since you -1'd me, am I able to get my coins out of deedbot still? [21:55]
