This is why I love #xkcd

19:31 < darthFerret> the title of an actual porno film:  "There's a Black Man in my Wife's Ass!"  Seriously, that sounds more like the frantic 911 call that ensued.
19:31 < Scouto2> Bucket, porn movie suggestion
19:31 < Bucket> Men in Black Women
19:32 < darthFerret> hahahaha
19:32 < Scouto2> ROFL
19:32 < cuddlefish> hah
19:32 < darthFerret> Bucket, you're awesome!

This is why I love #xkcd. Bucket is the most awesome bot ever.

    19:47 < darthFerret> πŸ™‚
    19:47 < anaximander> yeah, most of my wireless stuff has been with zigbee-type stuff controlling amateur UAVs πŸ˜›

    09:31 < mike> It's also simple.                                                                                         
    09:31 < mike> 1. Did stuff happen?                                                                                      
    09:31 < mike> 2. Yes: zombies!                                                                                          
    09:31 < mike> 3. No: zombies!                                                                                           
    09:31 < darthFerret> haha                                                                                               
    09:32 < darthFerret> A decent compiler would optimize that whole thing down to just zombies!                            
    09:32 < darthFerret> πŸ˜›                                                                                                                                 
    09:34 < darthFerret> gcc -O0 would be all like movl $stuff,%edx; xorl %eax,%eax; test %edx; jz zombies; jmp zombies;    
    09:34 < darthFerret> gcc -O2 would just be jmp zombies;

    15:10 <@Stereo> it's the anthropomorphic principle!  the entire universe was created so humans could become furries.

    LOL – in #xkcdfurs we were discussing our favorite anthro characters. You all know mine. I terminated my mink infodump with “Yeah, I kinda have a big thing for her.” Then I realized how that sounded and added “And that’s not what I meant to say but is, sadly, no less correct.” At which point everyone lol’d. Two furs even share my favorite character. She’s apparently quite popular. </sarcasm>

    The weird part is that, like other comic and cartoon characters, I actually do have strong feelings about her. A big result of that is that I have a lot of respect for her canon purity and even just for her as a character. To prevent me from flying into a homicidal rage, I don’t read fanfics and I skip past any Rule 34 I find of her. My tiny shrine(y?) is 100% family-friendly. (There are two exceptions to my no-pr0n rule and they aren’t in my FTP archive. One is by EWS (who is allowed to do anything he wants with a character he had a (invisible) hand in designing) and the other is fanart that’s not only tasteful but one of the best renderings of her – including her canon animation. :P) BTW, I have favorited the author of said fanart on DeviantArt. He’s got a lot of other nice non-mink related stuff, too.

      OOH! And I found two other dudes, one with graphics expertise, who not only know of the tragedy that befell ~5,500 frames of her animation during the late-night censorship panic, but are willing to help out in the effort to restore them to their pre-whiteout condition. One of them has even seen a single cel of the ‘toon in question before it was mutilated so he knows the proportions. He sent me a sketch of what he could remember and when I compare it to the model sheets and to the other known models (Amy the Squirrel being a major one), I find his memory to be highly plausible. With any luck, we may be able to undo the damage that was done. Believe it or not, this is actually pretty exciting. It goes beyond individual efforts – we feel like we’re fixing something that was broken and giving back to the world something that’d been taken from them. And that’s pretty cool. πŸ™‚

        Top priority, by unanimous agreement, goes to fixing the scene in Moon Over Minerva where she retrieves the key to her diary from its hiding place. The key actually clips through the whiteout and it just looks horrible. I have 5 frames of that done so far. I have yet to compare notes on them with the others, though.
