I love that someone somewhere funded a real fucking study to explore a glib aphorism.

Hey, the bull in a china shop is still one of my favorite Mythbusters.

(Though in fairness, they didn't actually do anything to enrage the bull. I think the expression implies that the bull is already pissed off about something before being set loose in the china shop.)

Well a Mythbusters episode, that's not quite the same thing as academics with far too much money.

Found it

Real monkeys[edit]
In 2003, lecturers and students from the University of Plymouth MediaLab Arts course used a £2,000 grant from the Arts Council to study the literary output of real monkeys. They left a computer keyboard in the enclosure of six Celebes crested macaques in Paignton Zoo in Devon in England for a month, with a radio link to broadcast the results on a website.[10]

Not only did the monkeys produce nothing but five total pages[11] largely consisting of the letter S, the lead male began by bashing the keyboard with a stone, and the monkeys continued by urinating and defecating on it. Mike Phillips, director of the university's Institute of Digital Arts and Technology (i-DAT), said that the artist-funded project was primarily performance art, and they had learned "an awful lot" from it. He concluded that monkeys "are not random generators. They're more complex than that. ... They were quite interested in the screen, and they saw that when they typed a letter, something happened. There was a level of intention there."[10][12]

Ha, nice.

I think the one I'm thinking of is more recent, but yours is better. Thanks for sharing.

Given what I read on MyFace or most anyplace else on the internet these days, I'd say that's a valid way to approach a computer.

[prior to this exchange I was talking about the sleepless guy who lives below us losing his mind]

<KingRamz> How many floors?
<KingRamz> He might actually be hearing the people below him.
<Mongrel> We're on the sixth floor, he's on the fifth.
<Mongrel> I'm assuming he thinks he's hearing it from the ceiling though.
<KingRamz> He must think that or he wouldn't be complaining to you.
<KingRamz> But it's probably pretty hard to tell whether some random thumping noises are coming from above or below.
<KingRamz> Especially if the acoustics are such that he's hearing it echo off the ceiling in his apartment somehow.
<Cannonball Fun> Sometimes when someone next to us jumps on the floor a lot it vibrates into mine and feels like it's coming up from below.
<Cannonball Fun> Could be something like that.
<Glocks4Interns> sometimes when the dwarves below me delve too greedily and too deep they wake durin's bane and let me tell you that is a huge PITA

[20:04] <Aoko> New GDQ idea: Who can speedrun Morrowind the fastest
[20:05] <Nodal1> lyrai thats literally what speedrunning is
[20:05] <Nodal1> you invented speedrunning but also used the word speedrun in the sentence
[20:05] <Aoko> Yeah but I mean, which glitch or way that morrowwind is broken will come out on top
[20:05] <Nodal1> right thats what speedrunning is
[20:05] <JD> the world record is 3 mins 14 seconds
[20:05] <Aoko> Like just in this conversation you've outlined that there's so many different ways to just break the game in half, I want to see people actually math out the absolute /fastest/ way to do it
[20:05] <Brentai> World record is still 3:14.
[20:05] <JD> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gON5k2kw3as
[20:05] * Upthorn has quit IRC (Ping timeout: 384 seconds)
[20:06] <Aoko> So you're saying it's easy as pi to break morrowwind.
[20:06] <Nodal1> right they do
[20:06] <Nodal1> thats speedrunning
[20:06] <Nodal1> thats what that is
[20:06] <Aoko> YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH
[20:06] <patitwo> there is actually a morrowind speedrun
[20:06] <patitwo> that's been mathed out to take advantage of the most optimal glitches
[20:06] <Aoko> Okay patitwo has answered my question and not sounded like a jerk about it
[20:06] <Brentai> JD's link is the WR, where you basically jump over the world and clip into the final boss's area.
[20:07] <Brentai> JD linked you right to it!

<Skelonaut> I'd be pretty excited if it was just a tablet with precision controls and Nintendo games on it.
<Glocks4Interns> Agreed but this is pretty far from the tablet form factor
<Mark> Similarly to the stone tablets that the 10 commandments were etched on, the Switch breaks into multiple pieces, and some folks mistakenly worship it

<@Romosome> I dunno, I stopped being able to figure this shit out around the time Fate went from doujin games to real actual games without any increase in quality or sanity
<Brentai> Yeah I kinda go crosseyed when confronted with the whole subgenre of "Name Random Things Random English Words, Also Porn".

I was streaming at the time so I didn't get to say but
A) They were watching me play Fate/Extella, the Fatestaynight Musou game
B) Brentai's description is....disturbingly close to what's actually going on in the game?

A bit long, but Mothra might appreciate this one:

<Jack> I saw Godzilla Resurgence btw.
<Jack> It was an entertaining film and I enjoyed it but also holy shit pro-fascist subtext. Like bordering on just text.
<Doug> Is Godzilla Hitler?
<Monty> That sounds like an idea.
<Monty> Here's $75 million. Come back with a movie in time for Summer 2018.
<Jack> No the hero is Hitler. Like the entire film is about why democracy doesn't work and you need a strong man to make the tough decisions.
<proleps> Shin Godzilla was refreshing in that the hero is the government bureaucracy where everybody just does their individual job and then they defeat the monster
<Jack> Yeah I mean I like that it's actually just framed as a government response but
<Jack> The sub-message was definitely that to really solve problems the government needs to stop listening to legislatures and polls and international bodies and just do what the charismatic young strongman says.
<Jack> Or his stony-faced nerd chick sidekick. Or his hot-headed half-American cool chick sidekick.
<Jack> Wait is this just Evangelion but Shinji is replaced with young Hitler.
<Monty> Slow down, we have to release Godzilla Hitler first.
<Monty> If we get the awards buzz we're expecting, your movie can come out in 2020.
<Jack> In the stinger for Godzilla Hitler, can we reveal that the real Hitler was humanity
<Monty> Absolutely.
<Monty> The movie ends with Godzilla Hitler being defeated, everyone high-fives, and the Linkin Park comeback jam plays over the end credits.
<Monty> Partway through the end credits, there's a shot where the mustache falls off Godzilla.
<proleps> I'm looking forward to the GHCU
<Monty> After the end credits, there's thirty seconds of silence, and then we pull back from Earth to show that all of humanity is standing so they make Hitler's face.
<Monty> (The nerds in research claim that the Earth is a globe, so we can't show all of humanity at the same time, but no one listens to them anyway)
<Jack> <3<3<3
<Vodalian Stallion> Did you know that Gojira is Japanese for Japanese Godzilla?
<QED> that's racist!
<Grant> Ok, so a team of Nazi scientists has managed to steal Mechagodzilla, and put Hitler's brain in him.
<Grant> In the process, the brain is corrupted, so Mechagodzitler kills the scientists and rampages toward Japan.
<Grant> Godzilla, having taken on the role of Japan's protector, tries to stop him, but Hitler's brain's indomitable spirit makes Mechagodzitler even more powerful than ever.
<Grant> Godzilla is thrashed and left for dead.
<Grant> BUT, Hitler's ghost sees what's happening and is unhappy.
<Grant> He had a deal to not attack the Japanese, and his brain is breaking that deal.
<Grant> Hitler's ghost refuses to see his good name sullied, and partially possesses Godzilla - enough to increase Godzilla's power, but still get booted back to hell when the job is done.
<Grant> Godzilladolph and Mechagodzitler fight it out, Japan is saved, the end.
<Grant> Also some annoying Japanese children run around government installations getting in the way.
<Grant> now let's do a few rails and bang out that screenplay!

[19:56] <Lila> I love his prayer today
[19:56] <@Sede> all this time having to hide behind the front of that politically correct arab guy and his cross, waiting until they were free to say what was really on their mind
[19:56] <Lila> by which I mean no that's fucking wrong what is wrong with you.
[19:57] <@Sede> he prayed? to which corporation?
[19:57] <@Sede> "He added that “freedom of religion is a sacred right, but it is under serious threat.”" now more than ever. from you.
[19:58] <MetalSlime> There has to be something in the bible about it being a severe fuck up to use prayer to mock someone
[19:58] <@Sede> how the fuck is he uttering these words out loud without bursting into fire?
[19:58] <@Sede> Oh did he pray that Arnie's ratings on the New Apprentice stop tanking so hard?
[19:59] <MetalSlime> I wonder if anyone is keeping track of occurrences Trump diverges at an event to attack someone
[19:59] <MetalSlime> Yes Sede
[19:59] <MetalSlime> Yes he did
[19:59] <@Sede> ..seriously?
[19:59] <MetalSlime> http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/02/politics/ ... breakfast/
[20:00] <@Sede> oh my fucking god i was joking
[20:00] <MetalSlime> sede.exe has encountered a fatal error.
[20:02] <MetalSlime> That's right. Trump is becoming so crazy that he is manifesting Sede Rambles into reality
