I remember when I was like Nomad and I could do
the same thing and name EVERY country in the world.

Then I started drinking.

    Thrax dispenses health advice to AirbornFlght

    You seem to be under the impression that I meant right now. Monday is tomorrow. You'll live. Stop consulting PC nerds for medical advice.

    CB and GHoosdum discuss difficulties with rental cars:

    GHoosdum: Holy crap the rental I got is the most uninspired car of all time
    CB Droege: Just a car...
    GHoosdum: A car with flaccid handling
    GHoosdum: Like driving a walrus
    GHoosdum: A dead one
    CB Droege: I think that might be much more difficult than you're thinking it would be.

    Me: Because you love Australia
    She: Oh, I love australia, but never been...
    She: The accent makes my panties wet...
    Me: That's ok if you're a girl...

    They're HELIUM PIRATES. They come from below with their HELIUM BALLOONSHIPS and drill into your storage tanks. Then they siphon the helium using hand-pumped bellows into their shoddy tanks quickly, leaving you in a lurch.

    The problems are twofold: You lost your treasurelode, AND you lose the buoyancy boost that comes from the added helium. Return trips are always FASTER because of the helium, you see.

    Light conversation in IRC

    BlackHawk: I'm buying helium. That's gonna be the next gold bullion.
    Keebler: can i buy helium on the commodities market? maybe it would have a -wait for it- ~lifting~ effect on the market
    the_technocrat: I think you're full of hot air
    Keebler: but im a gas
    the_technocrat: The market's under too much pressure
    Keebler: it's going to boyle over
    the_technocrat: Keebs, you're a star. Are you looking for some kind of reaction?
    Keebler: it was a noble attempt at further humor.
    BuddyJ: Keebs is inert.
    Keebler: ugh, i had too much for lunch. i feel like a blimp.
    the_technocrat: you need to release some gas. It's ok, it's natural.
    Keebler: i feel a little deflated after that one.
    Keebler: i once read a book on helium. i couldnt put it down.
    BuddyJ: I know that book. It floated to the top of the NYT Best Seller list.
    the_technocrat: so... this line of humor is purely atomic
    Prime: well this makes for some good light reading
    the_technocrat: hmm?
    the_technocrat: aw, you got me
    Prime: * zing * what a Bohr.

    GHoosdum: Lately I've come to interpret the letters "CB" as a sort of eye-roll emoticon in itself. :P

    Real-life conversation between the owners:

    Keebler: So, do we have backups of the file share?
    Primesuspect: No, it's RAID5.
    Keebler: But what if i accidentally hit delete?
    Primesuspect: Why would you delete something?
    Keebler: Because I don't need it anymore... and I've done it to the wrong thing in the past.
    Primesuspect: Don't organize my files.
    Keebler: ...I already did. :D
    Primesuspect: {facepalm}

    <shwaip> in utterance regions where the utterance lattices are very bushy (indicating the utterance phone detection is not confident), require a higher threshold to say "keyword detection" frame by frame lattice confidence measures based on density. phone confusion based confidence measures for the lattice confidence
    <shwaip> hmm
