Agh, and Vector wins the prize! That's close enough to the intent* that I might be able to stretch it. I'm tempted to go back and change it from "ramble" now. But then I'd have go to create a trend like that for physical movement, to maintain symmetry... If I can make that happen, I might just do it. I'll devote some effort tomorrow.

*You go on a long tangent in the hopes of distracting your opponent from what you were actually talking about, like how we derail threads around here.

EDIT: Yeah, pontification seems more rambling about how right you are (on a meta level, as opposed to rambling about the things that actually make you right), so it'd be a bit of a stretch.

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

Improvisation?

Is the bits we were trying to fix.

We had most of the Asian languages, British, Scottish, Australian and South African. And a few other handraises before the guy who put himself in charge of coding came back and was all like 'Oh hell no'.
What was the reasoning behind abandoning that plan?

Firaxis just made the game very difficult to mod.

Yeah, he's a banned spammer. Normally we'd delete this thread too, but people were having too much fun with it by the time we got here.

I have natural yoghurt. I have used god-tier tomfoolery in order to make this yoghurt taste like a biscuit. Fucking amazing what a bunch of spices and some honey can do for you.

I do not understand.
Why not eat a biscuit?

Something's wrong with the oven, I'll need to have an electrician take care of this if that's even possible.
Therefore, no more biscuits. They're carefully rationed for consumption alongside tea.

Just beat Super Metroid for the first time since I was, like, 14, and beat it for the first time without the reset glitch for the first time ever.

1:34 hours, 50%. Boo. Kinda sucks, especially since I completely skipped Spore Spawn and that huge backtrack you're supposed to do to get the power bomb and got the ice beam early.

This may be the finest hamburger I've ever eaten. The secret is that skeletal muscle is lame, and should have no place in my diet. So I don't think it will anymore, at least not as long as there's a friendly butcher within easy driving distance.

Well his heart is in the right place.

Also: you really want to remain on good terms with your local butcher.

Yes. Yes, I do. I will see next time if they will accept extra money. They deserve it for this.

I will not dignify the puns with further puns.

Butchers are universally awesome. The one on my street corner has offered to import meats he doesn't usually order, just because I asked if he had any.

My grandfather was a butcher at one point :P

Theeeen became a pastor.

That's about all I know about my grandfather's working life.
