<lorimer> new subject: boobies
<Eidolos> I seriously doubt Rodney would use a constant rng seed.
<`Masque> The source would doubt that too.
<Eidolos> I didn't feel like loading up the ole browser. :)
<lorimer> BOOBIES
<lorimer> firm, round boobies the size of canteloupes
<Eidolos> Lorimer makes an interesting point.
<ZenMasterJG> shouldnt it use the length of @arg in rand() instead of just @arg?
<lorimer> going bugejabugejabugejabugeja
<GreyKnight> Your ideas intrigue me and I wish to learn more.
<lorimer> ZenMasterJG: boobies

<Rodney> yhelothar3 (Bar Hum Mal Cha), 1148 points, quit
<GreyKnight> yhelothar is quitting again >:-(
<yhelothar> what do you mean again
<yhelothar> i accidentally #prayed when i meant #offer
<yhelothar> messed up the game
<ChrisS67> so?
<yhelothar> so?
<yhelothar> good question
<yhelothar> you just hit me square in the heart with a reflective soul-searching question
<yhelothar> because it's easier to just reroll
<GreyKnight> Absent fouling up the Quest, every game is ascendable
<GreyKnight> (Well, you can get yourself into certain doom with no means of escape too, but in that case it's better to let nature take its course)
<yhelothar> not if you're cornered by an angry archon with nothing but a pair of kicking boots it isn't
<yhelothar> that archon really fucked up my day
<ChrisS67> you mean, the Archon that you wished for?
<ChrisS67> that Archon?
<yhelothar> yea
<GreyKnight> Well, good luck figuring out the statistics of which sort of situation kills you the most, if all records just read "quit"
<yhelothar> i don't quit that much
<yhelothar> where you gettin' that anyway
<ChrisS67> !gamesby yhelothar
<Rodney> yhelothar has played 326 games, between 20081127 and 20111102, highest score 444917, died 249, quit 23, escaped 54 times

<Rodney> yhelothar4 has played 3 games, on 20121021, highest score 1777, died 1, quit 2 times
<GreyKnight> -_-
<yhelothar> see my record ain't so bad
<ChrisS67> hmm this doesn't look good
<GreyKnight>'ve quit over a hundred times and it "ain't so bad"?
<yhelothar> in my defense, most of those quits were when i rolled a wizard and didn't get a spellbook of identify
<yhelothar> ain't so f-in way i'm playing wizard without my identify
<ChrisS67> not much of a defense
<GreyKnight> Startscumming is a "defense" now
#65 (-49) X February 28, 2013
<yhelothar> yea i've been playing on and off since 2002
<yhelothar> never got around to ascending but i've read all the spoilers
<wrabbit_> 'never got around'
<yhelothar> hey
<GreyKnight> No time like the present
<yhelothar> i could if i wanted to >:O
<GreyKnight> Don't let us hold you back
<yhelothar> back in '04 i had a valkyrie that was on its way up from the sanctum and my comp crashed
<yhelothar> it was a local game and wasn't recovered
<stenno> local wouldn't have counted anyway
<yhelothar> that was my first time at near-ascending and i was so scarred that i didn't play for another 7 years
<yhelothar> also i didn't use elbereth
<yhelothar> because i thought elbereth was cheap
<yhelothar> i protection racketed tho
<yhelothar> which is kinda cheap i guess
<stenno> admit it, you pudding-farmed and got bored with it
<yhelothar> i am pretty bored with nethack
<yhelothar> my last wish was the blessed rustproof +2 Tsurugi of Muramasa
<yhelothar> i like watching more than playing
<stenno> a bad wish
<stenno> fair enough
<Malpercio> I like both
<Malpercio> but I don't tend to watch people I don't even know.
<stenno> i like playing, watching only in exceptional cases
<yhelothar> i also wished for a statue of Master Kaen once and tried to die by kicking it
<GreyKnight> I like making terrible puns and writing bits of code
<stenno> i like turtles
<yhelothar> code in what?
<GreyKnight> A computer usually
