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.
