    Default Mercenary Pen's Meticulously Planned Machine of Prose Random Banter #182

    Well, I've been meaning to do this for a while and here we are.

    The Previous Random Banter can be found here:
    Dimonite's Decidedly Draconic Devious Discussions: Random Banter #181

    The Not-So-Random Rules of Random Banter:
    Spoiler
    Show
    1. Spam. For the purposes of RB, one word posts are generally considered spam. Likewise, posts that are nothing but *actions like this* are also be considered spam. Remember that the quality of the post's content is much better than the speed of your response.

    2. This isn't the Play by Post or Town forum, nor is it the Silly Message Board Games or Structured Games forum. Please avoid continuous roleplay or mock battles and fights such as the "competition for control of the universe".

    3. If it's already a thread, don't bring it to RB. RB has such a huge range of subject matter even restricted to the little snippets that probably don't warrant their own thread, it doesn't need legitimate thread topics cluttering it up as well. The exception to this is to bring something that is off-topic from one thread, but on-topic for RB and the subject doesn't warrant a thread of its own.

    4. Don't advertise other threads in RB. Just because these new threads move at speeds more appropriate to a message board than an IM session doesn't mean you need to come over to RB and brow beat people into posting in your latest brainchild.

    5. Please don't post single line posts alerting us to your current status -- as in "I'm back." This is Random Banter, not "How to stalk Random GitP forum members."

    6. Don't poke, kick or bump the thread. It will move at whatever pace it wants to. Also, please refrain from Captain Obvious comments akin to "My, the thread is fast today."

    7. Random Banter can only be as good, or as entertaining, as you make it. Demands to be entertained will fall on deaf ears unless you can add something more meaningful to the conversation.

    8. As this is a public forum, where the current topic is nicely recorded for you, and not a conversation where you could have missed the beginning, please refrain from asking something to the effect of "What's the topic?". Please take the time to read up a bit first.

    9. Thread Creator must include the words "Random" and "Banter" as well as the thread #. Try to be concise as well.

    10. Every post should contain two visible, legible complete sentences, Subject and Predicate. C'mon, make your old English teachers proud.

    11. Remember, Random Banter is not your IM client. If you want to have a back and forth discussion with just one person, look in their contact information for IM details.

    12. Whenever a new thread is created, all "first post", "first page", and all posts of that nature will be deleted by the administrators. Please avoid doing this, as it is frustrating for them to deal with one-lined posts like this.

    13. Double-posting is not your friend. We have edit buttons for a reason.

    14. Once you have made a Random Banter thread, you must wait 50 threads before making another one.

    15. If you can avoid dibs calling on making the next thread, that will avoid people needing to wait if the thread hits 50 pages while the dibs-caller is asleep.

    But the previous random banter was Dimonite's Decidedly Draconic Devious Discussions! Not Serpentines Secretly Sapphic Sacrarium of Salaciousness!

    And naturally, you've edited your post already.

    Oh well...


    Anyway... Anyone got advice for dealing with the tiny insect that keep flying around my monitor?

    Yep. Was trying to edit it beforehand, but Cloudflare wasn't delivering the site so I had to wait.

    As regards the bug, assuming you have no reason to believe it harmful and/or endangered, I'd say to just swat it with something and clean up. Much as it may sound callous, the few that you might kill should be far less than the reproductive rate of any insectoid species...

    They always are- patience is going to be important here (even though it may be in short supply)

    Also, in the event of illogically placed commas, tap the monitor slightly in case they,fly away...

    Well, Deadpool was a surprisingly nice thing to wake up to, haha!

    Which is odd as you'd usually think it was disturbing to wake up to him.

    Reposted from last thread, because I somehow always manage to miss the new one. By two hours. I'm a slow writer at times...

    Perhaps it was smulpaj (or not, because smulpaj is delicious and certainly not made with choclate).

    ION:
    Got too little sleep, lost track of time and realised that I'd be late for school. We've been caught in a freaking tropical storm as well (moderate wind, mostly rain), so I didn't feel like going, and determined from the course webpage that the lab we'd have today (automata theory) seemed easy enough to do on my own later. I actually tried downloading the source code for the software that we're supposed use and compiling it on my own, but after failing to include one header file despite giving the correct search path, missing another entirely, having to install the third set of third-party software and getting a string that's too long for the system to handle (over 65025 characters of auto-generated code), I just gave up and removed all traces of my efforts.

    That said, I still managed to get quite far in installing something intended for a UNIX machine on a Windows computer, so I bear my failure with pride nevertheless.

    Guys, stop telling me I'll be ok. I know I'm going to be fine, that doesn't stop me worrying about a big vague mess of undefined potential crises

    My ideal coffee shop music would be ambient, like Starfade. Maybe some soft electro, such as mind.in.a.box or the lighter side of VNV Nation. These suggestions may or may not actually be helpful

    Anyway, concerning the "Killed it for me" comment last night, I'm thinking it would of been better to say "what killed me" instead. That would of gotten my point across more better.

    Yeah, that's kind of the gist of it. It apparently made an amazing job evading the entirety of North America, and decided that it'd be a nice idea to go over and harass some Scandinavians instead for a change of pace. It's currently strong squalls and overcast, but no rain and and the clouds are fairly thin.

    Yeah, but since you started off by disbelieving the whole concept of a crumbly crust, I'd already gotten the idea. And since LaLa didn't specify if it was savoury or not (until afterwards), I still felt it was appropriate, given that the name literally translates to "crumb pie".

    I suddenly considered making a post concerning language evolution and the divergence of the spoken tongue from the written text...
    Is that what awaits English? Rampant bilingualism as the written language atrophies and the spoken language continues to evolve to a form unintelligible to today?
    We may never know for certain... But whatever it is, I'm sure the results will be very interesting...

    My writing is half written have spoken. Sometimes I use qualities of written dialoge (ie, brackets like this and what not) and sometimes I use qualities of speaking dialoge (like yha, would of could of should of instead of have, and so on).

    And yes, yes, I'm terrible at this whole english thing

    But if you don't tell them they'll never know!

    (Although I suspect you're right).

    It actually took me a couple of minutes to parse that (did you do that on purpose?)

    The thing is, "would of" is wrong even in spoken language. "Would've" is fine, but as soon as the "-ve" turns into "of", it loses grammatical sense.

    Actually, technically, based on the accepted pronunciation of the word of and the contraction would've... When someone thinks they're saying "would of", they're actually saying "would've", but with more emphasis on the 've.

    Yes, but once it is written, then it is a grammatical error.

    Yha, that's basically my problem. My head internalizes the internet as a given factor of real, so some words get spelt the way they sound, like would've being "would of"
