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 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.

<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. Can you ask for help in 
           the form of a question? Interesting. I want to find out 
           more about you.
<andycyca> I can and I will. You'll find more about me but first you 
           need to deliver this letter to lizardinlaw
<E2D2>     Go ahead.Who taught you? Do you mind if I tell other people.
<andycyca> Yes, I mind. It's kind of a private letter, so no one else 
           should read it. Not even you
<E2D2>     OK I won't tell anyone. It will be our secret. HERE is 
           kind of a private letter so no one else should read it? 
           kind of a private letter so no one else should read it is? 
           Times are tough all over.
<andycyca> thank you. Now, the message for lizardinlaw is "Please be 
           my Valentine this 10th of May". I know times are tough, 
           that's why I'm offering you this job
<E2D2>     you are quite welcome. Why now? Tell me more. How do you know? 
           Ok I will add that fact about tough that is why he or she 
           is offering you this job to my database.
<andycyca> It must be *now* because it's urgent. My life and 
           lizardinlaw's depend on it. Forget about the database
<E2D2>     It could be. Tell me more about your life. I will ask in10se 
           to purge my memory log.
<andycyca> no, don't purge your memory log. Don't bother in10se. 
           Just keep my file as it was before and get the letter to liz. 
           Got it?
<E2D2>     Are you sure? Ok I'll try not to do purge your memory log 
           too much. It's no bother. Chat amongst yourselves. Try asking 
           the Milk Mystic.
<andycyca> Yes I'm sure. Get her the letter and I'll have your 10 GP 
           right here, but go now
<E2D2>     What makes you so sure?Are you being sarcastic or expressing 
           certitude? Oh.Where can I get her the letter and he or she 
           will have your 10 GP right here but go?
<andycyca> I have no time for this, we'll be discovered. Just get to 
           lizardinlaw, you're my only hope
<E2D2>     Would you like to have time for this we will be discovered? 
           Where can I get to lizardinlaw user you re his or her only hope?
<andycyca> I thought you already knew, that's the point of being a 
           'super secret courier'
<E2D2>     Is that a fact. If the point of being a super secret 
           courier is, then I'll be very surprised.
<andycyca> bye e2d2

<???> Zephronias so meek, gonna inherit the whole fucking solar system

<reQuest> Flirting is about the brain. Like attractiveness. 
        Intent makes it happen, mostly.
<reQuest> Whoops...
<Nemosyn> Ah, sorry, that was me. Not reQuest...

<Zephronias> OKAY. I am not fucking with that one again for the rest 
           of the night. jesus.
<RedOmega>   That's what she said.

<A2S3> e2d2 Jet-Poop vs. dannye
<E2D2> dannye: It seems to be Gary Gilmore's last words, but we 
               used to say it to chicks when they were wavering about 
               getting out of their jeans.
<Jet-Poop> It's true, those were damn fine nachos.
<A2S3> But did it work on the chicks?
<A2S3> "Gazelles leap for our nachos, and you will, too!"
<A2S3> {background shot of gazelles and people leaping for nachos)

<Zephronias> If its night where youre at, then this is overthinking. 
             Night thinking is useless when its about the future.

<Angela> I feel like I should be writing but I can't think of 
           anything so I'm drinking

<A2S3> People who think they know a lot about any economics or politics are 
       unaware that it's all alchemy.

*Browncoat shows off her hot nuts*

<Angela> It's like, when there is a node that you just love, and you 
         look again and it's feels like a loss, even though 
         it was never yours to begin with, but it was part of the 
         forest, one tree cut down in the canopy of expected things

<Browncoat> If we want to guarantee successful harvests, we can set up 
            a creepy scare crow god, then sacrifice children to him 
            every year.

<raincomplex> the main value of perl to me is to show what crazy shit you 
              can do with a language itself
<raincomplex> it's like taking mushrooms to know god. there are way saner 
              ways to get there, but sometimes you need that rake to the 
              face to open your eyes

<Clockmaker> Andy, you'd better believe I blame the Unicode Consortium for 
             a sizable percentage of the world's ills.

<Stasik> andy killed the convo with his shlong

<Zephronias> i let my birds out of the cage to hang out in my room, and how 
             they are on top of my bookshelf, trying to fuck.

<Stasik> I keep the illegal sexual fetishes to myself

Zephronias's fireball fizzles.
<Zephronias> HEY

<Zephronias> fukcin RUDE, E2.
