< abablabab> so, you get hold of irrifutable proof the democrats actually rigged the election and without their interference trump would have won it by a landslide... what do you do?
< Gargravarr> take to Twitter, of course
< Gargravarr> that's where you break all the important stories
< abablabab> so you'd let him be right, become the emperor and destroy democracy forever?
< abablabab> cos you KNOW he'd never allow another election...
< Gargravarr> not in the slightest
< abablabab> but you just said...
< Gargravarr> i said Twitter
< Gargravarr> where actual news would be lost in the noise
< Gargravarr> and only people who are genuine morons would believe it
< abablabab> that's a technicality
< abablabab> you can't escape a thought exercise dilemma on a technicality
< Gargravarr> bet you i can
< abablabab> although 'post it to 8chan as qanon' would be a hillarious use of it
< abablabab> can you even fucking imagine
< Gargravarr> indeed. that was the vein i was going for
< Gargravarr> throw it in with all the other conspiracy shit and watch it get completely glossed over
< abablabab> well the point is it's proof, it's evidential
< Gargravarr> the last 4 years have proved that evidence doesn't matter
< abablabab> like whatever it is, anyone upon examination of it is going to determine the election was rigged
< Gargravarr> it's completely beside the point
< abablabab> LOL
< abablabab> orange man... good?
< abablabab> lol
< Gargravarr> you don't need to provide evidence to assert something, and in fact the presence of evidence that completely disproves what you're saying is irrelevant
< Gargravarr> #postTruth
< abablabab> so what you're saying is
< abablabab> if you had proof
< abablabab> it wouldn't matter
< Gargravarr> essentially
< abablabab> cos it's actually irrelevent if you have proof or not, everyone who's gonna beleive it already does, and everyone else already doesn't
< abablabab> fuck, that's miserable
< Gargravarr> welcome to the modern era abablabab
< abablabab> i thought i had a fun thought exercise joke
* Gargravarr bows
< Gargravarr> you're welcome
< abablabab> and you've reminded me this planet is doomed
< twigathy> So, how long until President Covfefe credits himself with the stock market raises today?
< Gargravarr> i'm surprised he hasn't already
< Gargravarr> beautiful irony that the market probably rose directly in response to Biden. him taking credit would be superb
< abablabab> the market is fickel, it went up after it went down when trump got elected. any change is good as far as they're concerned
< abablabab> does it look like it can perpetually show growth? sure why not
< Gargravarr> capitalism requires it
< abablabab> right, so...
< abablabab> it follows it doesn't actually matter who's in the whitehouse
< abablabab> the stonks will go up... cos they have to
< abablabab> world collapses (on paper) when they don't
< abablabab> ... this is fine
< Gargravarr> until the world ultimately collapses anyway because capitalism has stripped the planet dry
< Gargravarr> https://edition.cnn.com/2020/11/08/investing/global-stocks/index.html <-- this might have more to do with it
< Exobot> Title: Global stocks are soaring on hopes of a coronavirus vaccine - CNN
< abablabab> 'hopes of'
< abablabab> "they'll cure it eventually, why not today" said a spokesman between lines of coke
< abablabab> yeah nice that dudes random call made me £800 today
< twigathy> wat
< abablabab> that's my portfolio daily change lol
< twigathy> stonky
< abablabab> yeah i'm okay with that, i'd cash out but it's only gonna get better cos EnDlEsS gRoWtH
< twigathy> RIP
< abablabab> (to: the sound of silence) hello this is 1%, we would like you to save pret
11:13:42 < Gargravarr> >API returns HTTP 400 trying to request an OAuth token despite a week of trying different things >contact support >"the user wasn't permissioned on your account, we'll set that up"
11:13:53 * Gargravarr wonders if they're aware of HTTP 403
11:35:53 < Andee> (I assume that everyone except Eek here is Hetero)
11:38:42 <@Dark-Side> A bold assumption
11:38:52 <@Dark-Side> I wonder what Exobot identifies as
11:39:19 < Andee> AH-64 apache attack helicopter
15:13 < Vroomfondel> I once smashed a live wasp straight into my earhole.
15:13 < Vroomfondel> I was six
15:13 < bunu> did that go well for you?
15:13 < Vroomfondel> There were so many tears.
15:13 < Gargravarr> bunu: it made him the man he is today
15:14 < bunu> it made him so bitter and twisted he could love SDS?
15:14 < bunu> that sort of man?
15:15 < graymalkin> lol
15:15 < graymalkin> bunu++
20:06 < bunu> I think amazon have bought to many Bosch IXO Cordless Screwdriver with Integrated 3.6 V Lithium-Ion
20:06 < bunu> because apparantly its perfect for a "gift for her" on valentines day
20:06 < bunu> and for data night
20:07 < bunu> s/data/date/
20:21 < Vroomfondel> well, it might be
20:21 < Vroomfondel> depends what she likes
20:25 < bunu> and its use on date night is?
20:26 < Vroomfondel> putting up shelves.
20:31 < bunu> an insight into Vroomfondel's date night
20:39 < Vroomfondel> Vroomfondel doesn't have date nights. Vroomfondels are a lonesome species.
20:40 < Vroomfondel> probably because Vroomfondels think putting up shelves might be romantic
20:42 < bunu> i guess this can be considered progress
< zenith> do you know what really grinds my gears?
< zenith> cogs
