Chaos

Funny stuff that happens in the chatroom

183 posts in this topic

I haven't made a topic like this in years, which is a gross oversight on my part.

It's self-explanatory. Post transcripts of hilarity from your IM conversations. Try to keep them pretty short and sweet, unless it's especially awesome.

As always, keep it as clean as possible.

I'll begin.

(Note, Morgan's girlfriend is name Ashley)

[23:21] Morgan Smith: I had a prophetic dream last night

[23:21] Morgan Smith: of Ash and I living together and being happily married

[23:22] Eric: god, you know you're on a pokemon binge when instead of ashley, i immediately interpreted that as Ash Ketchum.

Facebook Status:

Friend- It really bugs me that very little people today know who Groucho Marx is...

Me-You know, I don't think I want to be any club that accepts him as a member.

He does. That's probably one of the reasons zas is referencing the exchange here, of all places. ;)

Me: There are 10 kinds of people who understand binary.Those who do.

And those that don't.

FriendA: groan!

friendB: Why don't you just say "I'm smarter than you" and be done with it. 0101

friendC: {friendB} said it all. What is binary?

friendC: binary of or based on the number 2 or the numeration system - numerals are represented

as sums of powers of 2 and numerals can be written using just 0101010101010101

I looked it up but still confused. Good luck to you on your homework.

Me: tongue.gif not homework. 10 in binary equals 2. Each one represents addition and

each zero represents a null. starting from left to right the digits are worth 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32... so 10 actually means (1*2)+(0*1).

Me: So, the number in binary that {friendB} put in her post is 5. (0*8)+(1*4)+(0*2)+(1*1).

FriendC: Thanks I think I get it

(I wasn't intending to be smart-alecky when I made the original post)

Topic Revival, because of our awesome chat channel!

This makes more sense when you realize earlier said "[00:49] <lyssie95> I have a crush on every boy".

[01:20] <Chaos2651> of course at least I don't have a crush on all the boys :P

[01:20] <Chaos2651> cough lyssie.

[01:20] * Chaos2651 laughs maniacally

[01:21] <lyssie95> Haha

[01:21] <lyssie95> Including eero?

[01:21] <Chaos2651> who knows.

[01:21] <Chaos2651> you'd have to ask yourself

[01:21] <eerongal> of course including eero!

[01:21] <eerongal> what are we talking about now?

[01:21] <Chaos2651> lyssie has a crush on you.

[01:21] <zas678> me too.

[01:21] <zas678> Bah- lyssie has a crush on me!

[01:22] <eerongal> zas has a crush on me? sweet

[01:22] <zas678> That's what I meant to say!

[01:22] <zas678> I'm going to bed now.....

Zas has does not have a crush on Eero. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST.

The loss of 17th shard has interesting psychological effects upon its minions

[22:25] <Windrunner17> So 17th Shard stopped working

[22:25] <Windrunner17> right now

[22:25] <zas678> By asking each other questions?

[22:25] <Windrunner17> Si

[22:25] <emeralis00> I was about to ask if anyone else had problems

[22:25] <Sweetness> Oh Stormfather! It's gone!

[22:26] <zas678> Ah!

[22:26] * Sweetness panics

[22:26] <emeralis00> AHHHHHH! 17th shard! WHy have you abandoned us!

[22:26] <Sweetness> It has forsaken us!

[22:26] <Sweetness> We are not worthy!

[22:26] <Windrunner18> Noooooooo!

[22:26] <emeralis00> nvm it back

[22:26] <Sweetness> Oh, okay

[22:26] <Windrunner17> Is it back?

[22:27] <Sweetness> Yes

[22:27] <Windrunner17> yes!

[22:27] <LanceAlvein> Too many threads running on the server... That's not good to see...

[22:27] <Sweetness> Oh no

That was awesome and confusing.

(And for the record; Not actually Brandon Sanderson. It was me. Nothing I said while using that name should be attributed to him in any way, shape, or form. All me.)

12:08 AM Alice: Disc 6? ;-)

12:09 AM Vin and Kelsir just went to meet their fake nobleman dude (R-something) for the first time

can't spell any of the names

And Vin is eating fruit and being impressed by cleanliness

My sister, describing where she's at in Mistborn, which she's reading for the first time (yay!). For some reason I find it very amusing. (oh, and she's listening to the audiobook, hence the name-spelling issue)

We just figured out the entire plot of the Stormlight Archive.

[00:09] <Sweetness> Anyways. Cultivation.

[00:09] <Shivertongue> What is she Cultivating?

[00:10] <Sweetness> People?

[00:10] <Sweetness> Roshar?

[00:10] <Sweetness> Space?

[00:10] <Sweetness> Potatoes?

[00:11] <Shivertongue> Potatoes.

[00:11] <Sweetness> Of course!

[00:12] <Sweetness> It makes so much sense!

EDIT: 100th post, FTW!

[21:40] <Shivertongue> Like, a year ago, me, Eric, Kerry, and Matt were up way, way too late.

[21:40] <Sweetness> Oh. Right. You're a dork. That's why.

[21:40] <Shivertongue> And we started doing a chatroom session as each of the Shards, and gave the Shards chat room names.

[21:40] <Sweetness> :P

[21:40] <Sweetness> Haha

[21:40] <Windrunner17> Gosh haha

[21:40] <Shivertongue> Aonamatopoeia, Reach_for_the_Skai, RayseOfSunshine...

[21:40] <Shivertongue> That sort of thing.

[21:41] <Sweetness> fun

[21:41] <Shivertongue> At the time, Aona and Skai's intents weren't known, though, so they were hard to portray.

[21:41] <Sweetness> I bet

[21:41] <Shivertongue> Eric did Endowment, who only ever said "That ____ is well-endowed.

[21:41] <Shivertongue> "

[21:42] <Sweetness> hahahaha

[21:42] <Windrunner17> Tanavast_ye_landlubbers

[21:43] <Sweetness> ...

[21:43] <Sweetness> I love you for that, Windrunner.

See what you're missing?

I realize that this is a double post, but I think this is too important to wait for. Stephen Colbert just used "REDACTED" on his show, during the Word!!!

This isn't IM, it's twitter, but it's still pretty awesome.

So in order to reach the awesomeness, you have to wade through some less awesomeness. Basically it's about a Self-Pub author who says he's not a Self-Pub author, even though he publishes his own books.

The Original Topic

Fantasy Factions' post about Mathias

Some highlights:

I am not a small press. I am an author with 18 titles for sale. That is more titles that some big publishing houses. I have advertising currently running in Locus, Publishers Weekly, Fantasy and Sci Fi, and Revolver magazines. I have blog advertising across the entire blog-o-sphere. I am not a small press or even self published. M. R. Mathias' books are PUBLISHED by Michael Robb Mathias Jr. and should be treated no differently that any big named publishers title. WHY? Because I do my job as a publisher too. Please quit sending my posts into the self published/small press thread. My titles are neither. I have 92k twitter followers @DahgMahn and 10 titles in their genre bestselling list. There is nothing self pubbed, or small, about books written by M. R. Mathias.

Thank you,

M.R.Mathias' publisher, Michael Robb Mathias Jr.

When people posted shock at his reaction, he posted this:

The only ill tone you find in my original post stems from your jelousy. I did not swear, threaten, or even do anything other than state facts. So why is my post offensive? I was even polite. Please tell us why this bothers you. Is it because I have sales? Reviews? Followers? Success? My 92k twitter follwers want to know.

And from his twitter account:

@mdlachlan @FantasyFaction Only industry people CARE about commas. Everyone else is enjoying the story. You could learn a lot from me.
@DahgMahn: Drafts do not make an author. There thousands of perfectly edited books that suck.
[Reply to above post] @mdlachlan Do you mean ‘there are’?

So Brandon Sanderson apparently sees all of this. And being Brandon, does something about it. The following are from his twitter account:

@FantasyFaction @Autumn2May All of this makes me want to make a thread in the self-pub section about a book I'm self-pubing in July.
@FantasyFaction @Autumn2May Then you'd have an example of an author who could be #1 on the NYT, and still belong in the self-pub section.
@FantasyFaction @Autumn2May Of course, I don't have 92k twitter followers, so maybe I'm not a big enough deal to count.

Oh Brandon. How you make me laugh. He then posted his publication schedule there, where he opens with:

Hey, all.

Brandon Sanderson here. I have been known to write some fantasy stories now and then. I have some self published and small press books coming out this year, and I thought people might not get a chance to hear about them.

[17:23] <Sweetness> The cosmere rap? No. It's still funny, though

[17:24] <Sweetness> haha

[17:24] <Windrunner17> Down on Yolen

[17:24] <Windrunner17> Where the Skullmoss grows

[17:24] <Windrunner17> Back to Roshar

[17:24] <Windrunner17> I dare not go

[17:24] <Windrunner17> For if I do, my spren will say

[17:25] <Windrunner17> "Have you ever seen a Seon, swinging a Shardblade?" down by Yolen

[17:25] <lyssie> we/I didn't write the whole thing, but it was mentioned at like 3 am that one time, along with the "go, go chaos" stuff

[17:25] <Sweetness> Oh yeah!

[17:26] <lyssie> That is pretty win, wind

[17:26] <Sweetness> Totally win.

[17:27] <Windrunner17> I'm totally setting it to music

All the cool fanbases have theme songs (or so I'm told :P)

Baha! There's an update!!

So this guy, heymickey posts in the Fantasy-Faction Forum under the topic "Why are my blog comments missing? Re: Mathias"

love M.R. Mathias novels. Me, my sisters in Texas, and my two brothers from LA , all posted comments on Mathias's behalf. None of our comments have been approved. I'm sure there are more than ours that have been censored. According to Mathias's FB page , there are a dozen or more comments from people who's post weren't approved because they were in his favor . I think this falls completely in line with his assessment of nazi censorship. His books are great if you don't read them it's your loss. Please deactivate my account . I don't associate with people who post such a blog as you have. You should really be ashamed .

To which the head admin says:

We done an ip check. Guess whose ip yours matched? smiley.gif

Nightblood stopped by early this morning to say hi, sign autographs, and of course kill Shivertongue.

[01:04] <@Shivertongue> I felt Vasher was the weakest character in Warbreaker.

[01:04] <@Shivertongue> Weakest viepoint character, I mean.

[01:04] <@Shivertongue> viewpoint*

[01:04] <Mistborn_Jedi> Vivenna annoyed me.

[01:04] <+Windrunner17> He'd like you to say it to his face :P

[01:05] <@Shivertongue> kay

[01:05] <@Chaos2651> vivenna also annoyed me but i appreciated her character growth

[01:05] <@Shivertongue> HEY, VASHER!

[01:05] <@Shivertongue> I THINK YOU'RE LAME!

[01:05] <@Shivertongue> He's a god, he can hear me.

[01:06] <@Chaos2651> lol

[01:06] == Nightblood [[email protected]/web/freenode/ip.50.52.3.68] has joined #cosmere

[01:06] * Nightblood stabs Shivertongue

[01:06] * Mistborn_Jedi drops pre-Ascension Sazed into the Court of the Gods to study their religon and introduces him to Lightsong

[01:06] == Nightblood was kicked from #cosmere by Shivertongue [Nightblood]

[01:07] <+Windrunner17> I guess you got schooled Shivertongue

[01:07] * Shivertongue taps his goldmind

[01:07] <@Chaos2651> oh snap

[01:07] <+Windrunner17> You can't recover from that kind of injury.

[01:07] <@Chaos2651> (allomancy)

[01:07] <+Windrunner17> :P

[01:08] <@Shivertongue> Clearly, I just did.

[01:08] == Nightblood [[email protected]/web/freenode/ip.50.52.3.68] has joined #cosmere

[01:08] * Nightblood stabs Shivertongue twice for good measure

[01:08] <@Shivertongue> Missed

[01:09] <Nightblood> But you are evil! I destroy evil

[01:09] <@Shivertongue> Besides, that's Nightblood, not Vasher.

[01:09] <+Windrunner17> Vasher obviously threw him at you

[01:09] <@Shivertongue> I have no beef with Nightblood.

[01:10] <Nightblood> I have a beef with you! You are evil!

[01:10] <@Shivertongue> Nope.

[01:10] <@Shivertongue> Evil has to care. I'm indifferent.

[01:11] <Nightblood> **** I'm out

[01:11] == Nightblood [[email protected]/web/freenode/ip.50.52.3.68] has quit [Client Quit]

[01:11] <@Shivertongue> That's how you deal with a sentient sword.
