AnyNowhere — daily chat log — back (to logs index)
20:27, Speeder> I guess Skinnymon missed those leaked US ambassador conversations :P (where the US is openly discussing who they should put as Ukraine president...)
21:46, Cryoburner whispers: That was quite a delayed echo there.
21:52, Raptorjedi> What I find most shocking about this is everyone acting like it's only US ambassadors (and the US in general) is the only person who does this kind of thing whenever there is a situation like this.
21:52, Raptorjedi> Ours were just the ones that got CAUGHT talking about it. Every other embassy in the Ukraine was talking about the same thing.
21:55, Raptorjedi> Every other country is playing the game of thrones right along with us. Wondering who will step up, what they can do to influence things to get the person they want who makes things better for their country.
21:55, Raptorjedi> And this happens globally every time a new leader pops up regardless of country :P
21:56, Cryoburner> Yep, really all governments with any ties to a nation having similar problems undoubtedly do.
21:58, Raptorjedi> We just get caught at it, a lot. But there's some embassador from like Peru or Japan or something wondering how they could benefit from this.
21:58, Cryoburner> And not just governments, but any groups with influence.
21:59, Raptorjedi> And governments will use their influence with groups of influence to influence other governments.
21:59, Raptorjedi> Anyone can fund the campaign of a US official.
22:00, Cryoburner> If they suspect there's going to be a change in power, it's in their best interest to help get someone cooperative with them in office.
22:08, Cryoburner whispers: Also, penguins are cool.
22:12, Albeyamakiir whispers: Penguins are very cool. Even being cold doesn't stop them being cool.
22:14, Skinnymon mumbles: "...about as apolitical as the penguins in Antarctica."
22:15, Skinnymon mubles again: i'm getting to old for this- and yesterday was my birthday...
22:15, Neuzd> Dang! I forgot, happy birthday
22:16, Skinnymon mumbles: gaah!
22:16, Skinnymon whispers: I didn't much feel like celebrating it, as of late.
22:18, Neuzd> Actually I stopped celebrating past 18. But it's still a fun thing to remember even if nothing happens.
22:18, Skinnymon whispers: But I really WAS working on a "present" for you of the Astrocartography Department... :twisted:
22:18, Skinnymon whispers: "Maybe" by March 1(?)
22:19, Neuzd> Kewl! What is it, a guitar?
22:20, Neuzd> A beer guitar penguin?
22:21, Skinnymon whispers: A Penguin on the Telly!
22:21, Neuzd> Don't tell me you really got me a real stardrifter!!!!
22:22, Skinnymon suspects that is a bit obscure, but I am prone to those references to Monty Python's Flying Circus...
22:22, Cryoburner whispers: Netflix has made their answer to that Amazon drone deliver service that is so likely to happen... www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucz3JpvDQjk
22:25, Skinnymon whispers: Quote from Prezm's log reply of October 18, 2013: "you REALLY didn't mean that, did you?????"
22:27, Neuzd> Meh, Netflix should have put more effort and be funnier.
22:29, Cryoburner whispers: Was it meant to be a joke? I couldn't tell after watching Amazon's drone video. :3
22:31, Neuzd whispers: I'm at a loss. Who's playing the penguin, now?
22:31, Skinnymon whispers: Drone delivery of pizza and beer is what we need to make mankind unite in peace and harmony...
22:32, Skinnymon> :P
22:32, Cryoburner whispers: Drone delivery of drones.
22:33, Jam whispers: Drones delivering drone manufacturing plants.
22:33, Neuzd> Pizza boys delivering VHSs.
22:34, Cryoburner whispers: VHSs of pizza boys delivering drones?
22:34, Raptorjedi> VCRs that play Beta max tapes delivered by a telegram messenger
22:35, Raptorjedi> I win
22:46, Cryoburner whispers: Now that RJ won, there is nothing to talk about. >_>
22:47, Neuzd whispers: I don't think that there is nothing to talk about.
22:48, Cryoburner whispers: Mary, what is there to talk about?
22:48, Mary Lou> Nevermind.
22:48, Cryoburner whispers: So... Nothing.
22:52, Neuzd whispers: We could talk about Mary. Hey Mary, how are the drone penguins?
22:52, Mary Lou> I either cannot explain or do not know what to explain.
22:53, Neuzd whispers: ...damn, I unconsciously reminded myself of that horrible horrible horrible Gibson novel, Zero History.
22:54, Cryoburner whispers: RJ can't win this conversation.
22:54, Cryoburner> Mary, where are my drones?
22:54, Mary Lou> Oh cat! If you don't know, how could I?
22:54, Neuzd> Mary, where is why?
22:54, Mary Lou> "Why", by Avril Lavigne, a B-side from the single "Complicated".
22:55, Neuzd> Geez, one could even say she nailed it.
22:59, Cryoburner whispers: Anynowhere needs drones. Mary could control them.
23:01, Cryoburner whispers: We could make deliveries to one another via chat commands!
23:03, Cryoburner whispers: A small quadrotor could theoretically make it across the Atlantic, given a floatation device and solar panels.
