VioletFox: so lets say you have been married for 10+ years and you are still in love with your wife.  theres a disaster of somer kind, zombies or something. and you also recently had a baby. its at most 1 year old. And something happens, there is only enough time to save one. who do you choose?
lewdicus: Wife, for the following reasons:
lewdicus: 1) Society has invested a LOT in making her functional. The baby is comparatively worthless
lewdicus: 2) She can walk
lewdicus: 3) Infant mortality has only been low for the last 200 years - probably the baby would have been dead had I been born in a different time anyway
lewdicus: 4) Babies are pretty easy to make
lewdicus: 5) The societal infrastructure for making new adult humans is probably gone, but the reproductive infrastructure for making new babies is always there
lewdicus: 6) Sex
lewdicus: 7) Love
lewdicus: QED babies suck uninstall life.exe
VioletFox: lol

<yamar> note: you would have to throw a hotdog at 1800mph to cook it with air friction
<qazwsx> yamar: how did you arrive by that answer
<qazwsx> Ah shit, brain's at it again
<yamar> qazwsx, it was on r/askscience
<yamar> which is like a nirvana for me
<qazwsx> Gotta take into account drag coefficients, cooling due to convection
<yamar> they did
<qazwsx> Easiest and simplest way
<yamar> was a <massive> explanation with lots of math
<yamar> including multiplying the velocity by 2 or so to account for heat lost to the air etc
<qazwsx> And wrongest way would just be to work out the specific heat needed to raise temperature by x degrees then use 1/2mv^2,
<adpaolucci> sup
<qazwsx> And use that as a lower bound
<adpaolucci> ewww math
<qazwsx> Holy shit it's nearly 00:30
* adpaolucci shoots himself
<qazwsx> Need sleep
<qazwsx> Night y'all
-few mins later-
<qazwsx> Godamnit, yamar
<yamar> hmm?
<yamar> got you stuck on the hotdog problem did I?
<qazwsx> I'm thinking about how to do this with drag coefficients and differential equations
<qazwsx> differential
<qazwsx> right
<yamar> hahah
<qazwsx> I'm going to assume a spherical hot-dog
<qazwsx> so, meatball then
<brjannc> lmfao
<qazwsx> oh damn, I haven't thought about conduction yet
<brjannc> "assume a spherical horse"
<yamar> the meatball would flake apart well before reaching any suitable speed

<Knifa> guys i wanna take my tab of acid now

<Ethan> I find that kind of odd
<StabbySpazzOut> why ?
<Ethan> linux users pay more than mac users
<StabbySpazzOut> mac users have no money left
<StabbySpazzOut> they spent it all on their computer

<dn5> I have int start = 1476620495; and int end = 1476620495 (unix timestamp), but if I have int res; and then res = end - start, res returns 0 when printf with %d
<dn5> why?
<izalove> because it's the same number?
<fstd> duh
<dn5> okay thats not supposed to happen haha

<MoikeLap> the E7450 was never designed with datacenter work in mind
<MoikeLap> apparently they can't withstand the rigors of being jammed under a 4U Sun server and used as a lever to line up rack-mount earholes

<Stormgren> She's sorta hitting on him
<Stormgren> but she's a known oddball
<Stormgren> like if you broke up with her, you'd find squirrel skulls hanging on your doorknob crazy
<Jesus> cleaned skulls, or still bloody?
<Jesus> also, does that crazy translated into depraved sexual acts?
<muchomas> depraved or not, it'll end in tears

<braddock> someone called in a bomb threat today. everyone in the office had to be cleared out so we got the day off.
<dat_dam> wtf
<braddock> we think we all know who did it, but we're not saying anything because now we all get a long weekend.

<G-Flex> a scammer just called my cell phone. Let's see where this goes
<G-Flex> lmao "Mr. Johnny Wilson"
<G-Flex> he's the "general manager"
<G-Flex> of the publisher's clearinghouse.
<G-Flex> I won a cherry red Mercedes! And a check for $1.5 Million!
<Shydow> lol
<Firestarter> Can I lend $5
<G-Flex> wow
<G-Flex> I tried playing along and he still thought I was messing with him
<G-Flex> he told me to get a pen and paper, and a few seconds later I was like, yeah, what do you want me to copy down
<Firestarter> Haha
<G-Flex> so he accused me of playing games because nobody could get a pen that fast!!!
<Sme> no one would ever answer their phone at their desk right
<Mrgary> what is notepad
<Keenan> I've always wanted to get one of those and flip it around.
<G-Flex> yeah I was like "I'm sitting at my computer, I can write down anything you want"
<Keenan> Be like "You know, it's a good thing you called. I'm Bob from Microsoft and your computer has a virus!"
<G-Flex> he wanted me to get a moneygram made out to a Kenneth Jones in Wichita, Kansas
<G-Flex> for $100
<G-Flex> so I could get a receipt, to show to the publisher's clearinghouse guys
<Sme> you should get right on that
<G-Flex> after a few more minutes I told him that it was nice I could waste that much of his time, and asked if there was any way I could possibly waste more of it
<Shydow> "Unfortunately, all my money is tied up right now. If you can advance me $100 right now, I could get access to my nigerian fortune"
<G-Flex> and that if he manages to scam anyone, it's probably going to be some old lady who doesn't know better, and that's kind of sad
<G-Flex> I love the idea that I'd have to send a $100 moneygram to someone in order to /claim/ over a million dollars.
<G-Flex> he hung up on me :(
<Keenan> I have a friend who is still sour with me because I didn't lend him money for that very same scam a few years back.
<G-Flex> the sad thing is, people fall for this stuff
<G-Flex> a customer of ours was talking to "Microsoft" who wanted her to pay them in iTunes gift cards.
<G-Flex> she bought the freaking cards before someone told her "yeah that's probably a scam"

dglambert: Any senior developers around?
Arild: define "senior"
dglambert: I am just trying to get a poll on how many years it took to become a senior dev
Arild: not sure how such a poll matters; each company has a different definition of what "senior" means
dglambert: yeah I am just looking for a more average definition
Lemony: dglambert, its subjective
dglambert: I am about to start my first dev job, how quickly can I become a senior dev, at any company
Lemony: are you smart?
dglambert: yes
Lemony: are you motivated?
dglambert: yes
Lemony: then it could still take you 10 years, your question sucks, sorry.

MichaelXX2_: College is great
MichaelXX2_: Just don't fuck yourself
MichaelXX2_: Then things get really really bad
BlueProtoman: Fuck myself?  In what way?  You mean "don't neglect coursework"?
MichaelXX2_: Well there's that
MichaelXX2_: Very much so
MichaelXX2_: And also be sure not to masturbate in the middle of class during a wild hallucination brought on by a lack of sleep
MichaelXX2_: That's not good either
BlueProtoman: Noted.
