Topic: The FIYH Chatbox Gems Archive

I have yet to ponder whether this thread is useful or not, but I needed a place to keep these two lines.

Regan: I don't understand the American health system.
Teague: nobody understands the american health system.

Ha. Hell yeah, I approve of this idea for a thread. (Largely because I've given up on all the pop cultural stuff that we usually talk about in threads, so the chat window is my primary thing these days.)

Re: The FIYH Chatbox Gems Archive

Turns out there's a simple online tool to reverse lines in a text.

This week, Teague struggles with an existential mathematics crisis.

Teague: anybody know a good method of deriving an answer like "-6" to describe a difference between two numbers?
Teague: if the first number is 6, and the second number is 0, I want a mathematical operation to arrive at "-6," indicating the distance and direction to travel away from the second number to arrive at the first.
Teague: not quite like modulo; modulo's the shit, but I don't know how to rig it to do this.
Teague: I'll always be comparing two numbers, I'll always want to know what additive/subtractive operation I would need to do to the second number to arrive back at the first.
Teague: first number: 7. second number: 4. answer would be +3, because to make the second number into the first number I'd need to add 3.
Teague: any ideas?
Teague: huh. holden wins.
Teague: the answer is very simple, and it makes me feel like a total idiot. I mean, I do feel kind of vindicated, because I had the good sense to suspect there'd be an answer. that's something, right?
Teague: anyway. no. yeah, you just do (second number - first number) * -1.
Teague: (Y - X) * -1
Teague: X = 5, Y = 2; answer I'd want would be +3. run through, we get +3.
Teague: X = 2, Y = 5; answer I'd want would be -3. run through, we get -3.
Teague: actually. ... ... ...
Teague: ...
Teague: ...
Teague: ...
Teague: you could also just do X - Y.
Teague: *sees self out in complete shame*

Yeah, X-Y= is pretty much what you'd need there, genius.

Never learned no maff.

Never passed pre-algebra.

I'm somehow saying this intending it to be my defense.

EDIT: To be clear, I will learn maff before too long, I just didn't in school and have other subjects on my mind at the moment. (History, mainly.) I'm not worried; I need to do maff before I do chemistry, and chemistry isn't gonna wait too long for its turn, so. It's all in the mix. :-P

Know your guitar tunings, kids.

Teague: in unrelated news, I just came up with a handy mnemonic device for remembering guitar tuning.
Teague: I mean... I myself don't benefit from it, because I already know standard tuning. but.
Teague: the strings are tuned to EADGBE.
Teague: usually the mnemonic you hear is something like "eddie ate dynamite, good bye eddie" or something. no sir.
Teague: I nominate "eat a dick, get bent, etc."
Writhyn: Well obviously the first one doesn't work because Eddie can damn well eat dynamite and be fine.
Teague: true fact.
Regan: To throw in a topical one... Europeans All Despise Great Britain's Exit.
Teague: hahaha.

Re: The FIYH Chatbox Gems Archive

An essay in literary witticism.

DeepThought: Don't judge a book-skin human by their leather
Saniss: 11/10.
Writhyn: I have a book-skinned friend. Good guy, but he's a little hard to read
Writhyn: textbook introvert, is all I'm saing
Writhyn: *saying
DeepThought: He's probably filled with drama
Writhyn: maybe, but I like his ideas. Very novel.
Writhyn: he's into politics, and he even served as a congressional page.
Writhyn: While his alignment isn't something I totally agree with, his opinions are justfied
DeepThought: Don't go reading into ideas yet. He'll probably edit them within a day or two
Saniss: He once told me he likes manual labor, but don't take it literally; what he did with his car speaks volumes.
Saniss: I think he's just not my type.
Saniss: That kind of character is a piece of work, I tell you.
Writhyn: give him a second chance, guy's a real font of knowledge
DeepThought: It's hard when he's up for interpretation
DeepThought: His words seem to everywhere
Teague: HE IS BOOKISH
Teague: AM I DOING JOKE
Writhyn: HELVETICA
Teague: HAH HAH HAH
Teague: *eats go-gurt on the slide*
Saniss: Your jokes lack impact.
Boter: (nomination for Best Of Chatbox thread or whatever)
Writhyn: We all know teague's jokes are a little........sans comic
Saniss: You know who this forum's lacking? Italian dudes. Because in this kind of times, new roman people might renew our humor a bit.
Writhyn: my grandma always said those italics are a little bold
Saniss: ... damn, that kid's good.
Saniss: Heard she was in a comma, btw. Sorry to hear it. She was always good at underlining social issues.
Writhyn: yeah, she always had great quotes. Every time we talked, I had a mind-blowing apostrophe
DeepThought: I heard she she only had a semi colon
Boter: oh actually i think i know your friend, tried to talk to him about how he'd hurt his footer but he'd just sorta glossary over it
Writhyn: Yeah injuries don't really phrase him
DeepThought: His outline is top notch
Boter: Sticks and stones and all that, though he does actually get pretty hurt by words - witnessed the rising action myself as he was getting ready to layout someone
Writhyn: fortunately the paranthetics were nearby and kept anyone from dying
Saniss: It's a tough period for him. At some point, next time someone asks him a question - mark my words, he'll make a dash for it and punch him.
Saniss: STRIKE, I MEANT STRIKE. Completely missed the occasion here.
Writhyn: Yeah you brought this thing to a full stop
Regan: What have I missed? I got here as fast as I could. Sorry I can't stay but I've got to, em, dash!
DeepThought: Slash your way on out of here
Boter: and here i was taking "punch him" as a slant rhyme/pun for "punctuation"

(God bless Notepad++'s search and replace)
