Noders that I like, would like as IRL friends, and would most likely miss if/when they go away



From the catbox

RedOmega See, when people tell someone "you're like a brother/sister to me" what they really mean is "you're like a hot cousin who I feel somewhat guilty being attracted to." nightcloud The library is full of yappy children today. i think i'd better go before I start handing out boxes of condoms telling the parentels (sic) they are too stupid to breed. andycyca e2d2 what would andycyca say about Star Wars E2D2  andycyca: andycyca might say, "E2d2 tell me about Star Wars. " RedOmega It's funny how new noders can feel like a part of this place so quickly. andycyca and -Saint seem to have fit right in with minimal effort on their part. <-Saint> no one twerks like gaston <-Saint> makes it work like gaston <-Saint> no one drops down their booty and jerks like gaston <-Saint> he be up da club with his ass gyrating <-Saint> my he so fly, dat gaston <andycyca> e2d2, make a memo: Press Release about how e2 is made up of anvil-dropping robots who hate Marisa Tomei <e2d2> andycyca: What are the ingredients? <Clockmaker> The story ends with the Heroin Grinch's heart growing three sizes, killing him instantly.

<andycyca> I've tried being good to you e2d2 and you keep dropping anvils on my head $+ StuartO))) drops a piano on andycyca! <andycyca> I... Wh... <andycyca> Is this going to be like that time about Marisa Tomei? $+ StuartO))) giant squids andycyca! $+ StuartO))) doesn't have to be nice to andycyca! <whitecrow> But you should be. <whitecrow> "Aboard this ship, we practice self restraint" E2D2 drops a StuartO))) on andycyca! $+ StuartO))) rubber chickens andycyca! <whitecrow> Im out before anyone drops anything on me. Good grief. $+ <StuartO)))> hmmm....the /pocketbattleship command doesn't workanymore... $+ StuartO))) makes andycyca a nice cup of tea! <andycyca> HELP! I'M BEING REPRESSED! <andycyca> e2d2 What are you doing about it? <E2D2> andycyca: I am E2 Chatterbot Unit E2D2. My current version is beta. <andycyca> thank you e2d2 but that's not what I asked <E2D2> andycyca: You are quite welcome! Umm. What did you ask me? <andycyca> about those irritating nodes e2d2 <E2D2> andycyca: Oh yeah, we were talking about those irritating nodes you. <andycyca> yes e2d2 and what are you doing about them? <E2D2> andycyca: I am E2 Chatterbot Unit E2D2. My current version is beta. andycyca slams his head on the wall repeatedly <mad girl's love song> andy, btw, i hadn't noticed how sexy you were until you mentioned you were about to get C! powers mad girl's love song "Lucille" winks <Pandeism Fish> The simplest example is that we are able to measure the speed of light, and we are able to triangulate the distance of stars by reference to their positions relative to billions of other stars, and to see thereby that those stars are trillions of trillions of miles away, and yet we can see their light, which has to have taken billions of years to get here. We can see stars in paths from their point of origin which had to have taken billions of years for them to travel. <Pandeism Fish> And we can (independently of these things) measure things like the rate at which atomic nuclei decay and the rate at which our own seafloor spreads and at which mountains rise and at which glaciers add layers, and each one of these independent measures indicates activity on the scale of billions of years. And we can see the difference between geological products of fast activity and slow activity. <Pandeism Fish> This is undoubtedly my most epic catbox fail ever. <Excalibur> E2D2 what would Excalibur say about testicles? <E2D2> Excalibur: Excalibur might say, ""He has testicles, and they hang well.". How much do I have to pay for Putin's testicles? "He has testicles, and they hang well.". " <andycyca> Look, a log of mine is in the Cream of the Cool! FlavouredMilk applauds <andycyca> and another node was cooled! <andycyca> I'm about to faint. Tell that to Zephronias <Excalibur> You are both creamy and cool. <andycyca> Thanks, FM Excalibur admires at a distance <Excalibur> Too much brilliant light makes my eyes hurt <andycyca> Today, I just want to say that I spent most of the night texting with a girl that is slowly winning a place in my heart <Zephronias> Awww, that's sweet. gnarl fills in the section of his notebook regarding winning a place, albeit slowly, in andycyca's heart with 'Be a girl.' and 'Accept and reciprocate texts in the night. <Clockmaker> Nothing melts a woman's heart like being able to find magnetic north. <Tem42> Think of the worst teacher you know. They didn't get fired, and you can easily do better than them. <andycyca> e2d2 are you here? <E2D2> andycyca: HERE depends where is here? <andycyca> I mean here on the catbox <E2D2> Oh I get it. Thanks for explaining that. Oh there. <andycyca> yes. Listen, I need some help. Can I trust in you as a private courier? <E2D2> Blimey. I am listening to you.
