We might have to work around some visibility and presentation issues, but have you read yatto's work?

Two seperate factions fighting to rule the same Soveriegn state or territory. . Still a bit of a misnomer though, because by that point, civility has gone right out the window.
The territory is earth, my rule is autonomy, and all my bloody civilians are motherfuckingnfreedom fighters. Want some chips with that serano :evil:

Sid would insist that the pool drain part is very important, to be performed at all costs, permits or relics notwithstanding.  The high pitched ringing in his ears suddenly became perspicuous again as it rapidly precipitated in frequency. Like an infernal turbine winding-down through the harmonic spectrum of being, boring beyond the Mohorovicic Discontinuity of his soul, past repair it touched the limit that had finally outstripped and stretched too far his capacity to return in one piece.  Pop.
 
Turns out those memory leaks are built into the architecture to serve as drain taps for some kind of well, or whathaveyou.  Some of the finer shit gets sloughed off the top of the stack.  This churning is instantiated by a push followed by release.  Calling for a pool pushes that stack to the top, and release causes that pool to pop from the stack.  This assumes operations are performed in a garbage collected environment, therefore, those leaks are only collected if the task is specifically called after storage thresholds have been exceeded. 

Meanwhile, proper coding for that objective was becoming difficult to obtain, legally or otherwise.  The overflow had to go somewhere, and we were running out of space.  Most obstacles had been surmounted: anchors seamlessly in place, plenty of rope in the spool, and a decent amount of headroom.  Things were looking good. Then he remembered autorelease.  The thread had not been wrapped.

Yea, it was the eyebrow thing that struck me like they were trying to leave a message.  Not to be outdone, I was just brainstorming some degenerate possibilities :lulz:

Any "message" they were trying to send was RECEIVED when that one flew up my shorts a year or two ago.
Plan B:  in Biological warfare, bee-friend the enemy of your opponent

.. they say, more than 500 bees engulf each hornet in a ball and raise their body temperatures to levels so high that the hornet dies in about 20 minutes. Some defenders die in the struggle against an enemy that is four times the length and 20 times larger than an individual bee. But their bodies are pushed out of the ball and they are replaced by others as the bees turn up the heat of their attack.

With the hornet entrapped, the bees vibrate and quickly raise the temperature of the ball to 116 degrees Fahrenheit, above the laboratory-measured lethal temperature range for the hornet of 111 to 114.8 degrees, the report said. Tests show that the bees, which display unagitated body temperatures of 95 degrees or less, can survive heat of up to 122 degrees.

Native Japanese bees know how to do that, not American ones, and that's only when a scout comes to the hive. Also I'm not sure Roger said it was an east Asian waspzilla. Arizona has its own native arthropods of doom.

Arg.  I knew that Shinto bees were particularly efficient against the Goliath's, and some domestic bees also knew the tactic.  Arizona, however, now that complicates things :eek:

Hi.

I've actually got a lot going on right now but I would love to help out in a bunch of ways.

I do all kinds of stuff with art, none of it professionally.  I don't play music though (a little tambourine and triangle).  I really like to write, mostly fun
   stuff and I am trying to get back into drawrings/painting.  (current projects are PBR design the can 2015 contest and a Lil Bub canvas portrait)

Somehow I've got some woodworking projects going on too. That's sure to be a mess.

I'm also a good "idea" guy. Today's good one involved a very large (10ft or so) inflatable 20 sided die.  I suggested that one of the superfluous uses for this contraption could be as a "beach ball" substitute at concerts/festivals.  If there's a band playing (picture someone fun like phishish) they could beforehand select 20 tracks and place each on a marquee above the crowd, corresponding with a number from 1-20. The crowd hits the die around until it reaches a platform near the stage where the number it settles on is the next song played!  :lulz:

I also study the occult and am a superhero.

Design an appropriate integrated circuit to register and determine which number resulted.  Compare data to results of pools using more than 1 die, different numbers of faces and combinations of numbers.  Contrast to using odd versus even sided polyhedrons

Bonus Question:  why was the die red?

But your idea is better, because mine would just hover next to the couch anyway.

And drones roam, they don't stroll...

So I was out BBQing with my dad over at his place, and another fucking hornet got me.  It starts floating around, so I'm all like "I'll just ignore him and he'll go away".  Except that what the little shit DID was to fly right into my face and sting me twice on the right eyebrow.  Now I look like Rocky at the end of the 4th movie.;

Time for more revenge on the hornet/wasp world.

They feel you are being supercilious and try to make a point?
I bet  there's a quicker solution, to permanently solve their feelings.

There's a reason it say "Visionary" on my business cards.
First I was like  :lulz: Then, hmm, :lulz: :lulz: :lulz: LMNO put wheels on it!

Yea, I wonder what they're trying to prove with all that disclosure.  There is a possibility she's just waiting to hear something like - "oh, that's so hot".  Otherwise, I generally ave to learn some still about "expert knot tying", imagination notwithstanding  :lol:

Yeah, I don't know. What does she want? Validation? Approval? For me to join her? In general my attitude towards that kind of thing is "Good for you, have fun!". I just don't really care how other people get their monkey on, if they're having a good time then I'm happy for them but hearing the details reminds me most closely to listening to someone go on and on about how cute their cats are and all the funny things they do.

Unfortunately, she may not even be oblivious to your being taken-aback.  Perhaps she is intimidated by you and this is how she tries to re-assert being in control.  Because she can't actually get you, she simulates the act by involving your imagination in the recreation of her fantasy.  By proxy, she feels one step closer conquest.  Probably borderline personality. 

I feel dirty just for saying that :horrormirth:

Is joke?

I don't think she's borderline. Unfortunately, I have fairly extensive personal experience with borderlines and she doesn't fit the bill.

I don't know if she really has any real pathology, just a lot of generalized neuroticism and maybe some really ineffective mechanisms for processing her personal shit.

Okay, yes, joke per strict definition, still, the question remains about her inability to register that this is making you feel uncomfortable.  Is she "plain or just playin'"(TM).  Over time, she should have the necessary mirror neurons to process your reaction.  Even if you were really tactful and elegant in your dissimulation,  the "correct" way to recognize and reciprocate such tact would be to comply.  Is she plain or playin'?  :?

If I may hazard, N.P.D., would be next runner-up (all based on extrapolations of my own conditions).  Not definitive determinations, just lenses to look through [I am not licensed psych-anything]

I just told you that I don't think she has any real pathologies. I have known her for seven years and this annoying thing she's doing right now is a recent development.

Why are you so intent on internet-diagnosing my friend?
Compartmentalizing helps me sleep at night :lulz:

That makes me sad...  Let me know if you want me to reign fire over something, anything, specific or general.  I don't know if I can water the plants from here, however, this devil is on command :punchballs:

It's time to offer online feedback on the school cafe!

"Do you have any other feedback about cafe or cafeteria food options that you would like to share?"
Me: "Just more variety. Also, the pizza is unsatisfying. Its tomato layer may as well be not existent and the cheese layer doesn't stick to it very well, but rather has a tendency to slough off as a cheese sheet, leaving an unappealing bit of crust. A salad bar is a great idea, and maybe a few more soups. It's also hard to see what sort of hot food is available- it's behind the cashiers, and condensed water vapor in the containers obscures what you're looking at so you can't see what you're looking at other than some sort of food like blur in a clear plastic box, so there's the process of blocking the door to see what's in there, not seeing anything, getting into line and then holding up the line to ask what's in there. Put the food somewhere else so we can make a decision without holding up the line. Also, see if you can do something about the layout. The door is a pain in the ass for people trying to get in and out when it's busy, and if a cashier needs to get out and do something, he or she can't without having to deal with the same pain in the ass. Keep up the good work with the coffee though."
:lulz:
Yea. And I think the cafeteria would benefit from my not having to seat myself.  If customers are having difficulties getting their orders in order, perhaps, instead of just spinelessly countenancing their their egregious unpreparedness, address the situation by offering orientation sessions.  Just not on my dime.  Mnkay :argh!: :lulz:
