<Nitya> also i know a decent amount of physics and i'm pretty sure that learning physics is no guarantee that you're going to know physics
* Charlatan aims the LHC at Nitya
<Nitya> for example, the LHC is several kilometers across, and also a circle
<Nitya> hard to aim

<Fiora> Jokes about ballistics are just so derivative.
<Fiora> These puns are accelerating in terribleness.
<saladofstones> that's beautiful Fiora, I think
<saladofstones> I need to turn it into a message about not going ballistic, though
<Fiora> (Sorry, calculus puns are obligatory!)
<GMH> Calculus puns are integral to every collection of nerdy puns.
<zeroplusalpha> I can't really differentiate between them, I'm terrible at maths.
<Fiora> I think I'm reaching my limits >_<
<Fiora> I don't think these puns can remain continuous for long.  Soon they're going to have to leave our domain.
<Juan> oh god i don't know math and yet these puns are hurting me
<GMH> That's a very clear sine of their power.
<Fiora> Don't go off on a tangent!
<Juan> You seem to be going in a tan...seriously
<Fiora> I liked the angle we had going there.
<zeroplusalpha> I would choose to not remain in this locus.
<Juan> It was quite acute angle, indeed
<GMH> You're just being obtuse.
<GMH> These puns are the right way to do things.
<Fiora> I'm not sure it's a real good idea; they can get pretty complex!
<Fiora> But I guess my fears might be imaginary.
<zeroplusalpha> You never know, the inverse might be true: they could be friendly.
<GMH> On secant thought, they might not.
<FlyingChaucer> You guys are in-sine
<zeroplusalpha> Opinion is divided on that.
<GMH> Our irrationality seems to be driving some people away.
<Fiora> Maybe the puns would be better if they were more natural?
<Fiora> Some of them are too negative.
<FlyingChaucer> at least we're real :V
<GMH> They're just adding to my amusement.
<zeroplusalpha> This is becoming exponentially sillier.
<Fiora> I think we should log some of these for later review.
<Fiora> I mean, it's only natural.
<Fiora> Then, I can eeeeeeee~ over them later!
<GMH> That's not a common idea at all.
<FlyingChaucer> that was a well-calculated move
<Fiora> It is the base of the idea, after all!

<Arha> this torrent has said it's a day away from completion for a good three days now
<Arha> I'm beginning to suspect that maybe the ETA is not entirely accurate
<IllFlower> Arha: No, your torrent's just travelling at relativistic speeds. For the information in the torrent, it's a day. For poor old you, it's 365,284,285,192,746 years.

<Barcode> Surely SOME part of a Muslim's direction vector is towards Mecca!
<Jack> Little do they realize that prayers actually are affected by gravity
<Jack> Christians have it harder, their prayers have to make escape velocity.

<Barcodrawing> The realization that Tribes brought me regarding these projectiles actually made me very uninterested in shooters that weren't Tribes, for a while.
<Nitya> FPSs: misleading physics students since 1992
<Nitya> ("wait, so you can have two things at the same place but at different heights?")
<Barcodrawing> That was one of the proofs the Church had that the world was flat
<Barcodrawing> nobody had ever been found above someone else in the same place! how could the world be round
<Nitya> "are you implying there could be a race of mole-men, Gallileo??"
<Barcodrawing> "Why, of course! Haven't you played Gears of War?"
