Bobtheninjagoldfish: oh nice, you doing nano? My wife is the local organiser.
Scar_Red_Tiger: First the timer goes down, and then the numbers go up
chi7891: I’m so stressed about the election
korvys: I started playing Crank last week when this was on, and then spent the next 9 hours playing it. So, thanks Cori.
cryptogamby: Of all my procrastination to shower before stream and I come in a minute before going live I’m disappointed in myself
jay_poe_: Don't be stressed. Just vote lrrBEEJ
N2Osferatu: crank! crank! crank! crank!
Scrubbodiestobears: wow did i just happen to check twitch seconds before the stream started? what perfect timing!

DiscordianTokkan: Thank you to all Americans that have voted, sincerely: a Canadian
Robot_Bones: man some cheetos and mountain dew would be great

Phailhammer: Great. Twitch did its little "I'll stop playing the stream without actually pausing it" act again. -_-
chi7891: #stressed
CarsmushPromthenSpupplins: *HONK*
DarkNacht: Is not good
KeirenH: I thought you were channeling the crapshots honk
Akaiatana: I dislike it for the audience believing the premise is true :(
TehAmelie: a good summary
DarkNacht: it doesn't age well
Robot_Bones: That movie has what plants crave
Styxseus: Oh right xD
Akaiatana: I prefer the Reboot episode that tackles the same subject
Brok3nGol3m: i came in half way, what are we referencing?
azlinea: Idiocracy
KeirenH: idiocracy
Brok3nGol3m: ah
ContingentCat: oh yeah the movie Brazil not the country
Despoiler98: MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM butter
Robot_Bones: and not the nuts
Scar_Red_Tiger: Have they been ticking away all week?
e_bloc: cheer100 I bet we have so many paperclips now
N2Osferatu: Counting down until someone sends a butter pump to mail time...
cryptogamby: Dont mean to break the illusion but the butter pumps didn’t have actual melted butter
Despoiler98: CAM did you know BattleFleet Gothic is an APP GAME?!?!?!!
Scrubbodiestobears: considering the hand crank game from last week, i wonder if Seedship counts for these
Akaiatana: It's okay, Cameron, we know that last time it was just idle speculation
PunkRockZoologist: I played through A Dark Room entirely since the last TS. It’s surprisingly immersive.
RvLeshrac: I still say the best idle game I've played has been Armory & Machine
ContingentCat: how many paperclips do we have now?
e_bloc: oh I loved differential equations
ContingentCat: @PunkRockZoologist me too, it was a good game
azlinea: @Scrubbodiestobears Seedship is probably adjacent to ilde/incrementals
PunkRockZoologist: You regurgitated that information onto the page and it was GONE from your system.
ArgentumFlare: I hear chemistry, and my brain aches
CarsmushPromthenSpupplins: i'm reminded of process simulations
atinyspacemarine: wait, what are we talking about?
Akaiatana: This is just the WoW crafting system, Cameron's talking about
atinyspacemarine: ?
atinyspacemarine: huh
SliverSwag: Algebra by the sound of it
atinyspacemarine: oh, process optimization?
Scrubbodiestobears: @Akaiatana how many frostweave cloth do you need for 12 imbued frostweave bolts? Kappa
rendelnep: I am shamed to say I left my home PC on so cookie clicker would continue running. I have not been hoe for more than a week
rendelnep: *home
RealGamerCow: You want some complex equations/situations? Look at some of the food factories and their processes.
OldMan_PJ: NaN
CarsmushPromthenSpupplins: all the E's
geekyasari: Oh, hi. Did you guys forget to send out the Twitter alert or am I done?
geekyasari: *dumb
atinyspacemarine: I only ever want to see log10(x)
PunkRockZoologist: This sounds like dealing with all the factors and trophic interactions that effect aphid life history in my PhD.
ArgentumFlare: I'm SO lost
Uristqwerty: Oh the scale Antimatter Dimensions can reach!
PunkRockZoologist: Guh. All that E
TehAmelie: my Clicker Heroes game is currently dealing with numbers like 2x10e40040. it seems inefficient
RealGamerCow: Humans don't really deal with anything over 1,000,000,000 I think.
TehAmelie: i mean insufficient
Akaiatana: @Scrubbodiestobears they literally patched that number about 3 years ago. But about 240
Scar_Red_Tiger: Meanwhile the Paperclip game is just the exact base 10 amount.
gsyhiap: I'm still playing that shark game you were playing last week...
Scrubbodiestobears: i knew that, but i'm so glad i got an answer lmao
Akaiatana: We could restart it to enter NoClip mode
TheMoatman: I think you can prestige in Shark if you haven't already. Well you can definitely prestige since it's been a week but you should have the all the materials in production to get the unlock and prestige immediately
Robot_Bones: how much of the planet is paperclip now?
PunkRockZoologist: Is the entire universe paperclips yet?
ani_laurel: it doesnt run if you aren't focused on the screen (or it did't when I played)

ContingentCat: I would leave paperclips accumulating overnight and it was a lot so over a week would be A LOT
Rockario: We are at a point where "How many can we make?" has turned into "How can we make them faster"
e_bloc: 58 cents per paperclip? that's highway robbery
TheMoatman: It's really interesting how the recycler utterly breaks the game
SketchyDetails: the event
RealGamerCow: holy shit. Americans buy 11 billion paper clips a year.
RvLeshrac: "We might touch"
BloodnBullets: I hope you move, breathing is moving and its often recommended
Tantusar: 243 per second, statistically.
FarleyF: And sometimes when we touch, the cracking gets too much and the headphones users run and hide
Tantusar: Well according to your data on screen.
CrmsnDragoon: that is a lot
RealGamerCow: I would not have guessed that number.
Robot_Bones: I feed my children a heaping serving of paperclips every night
AmoriLinguae: I mean, it's gotta be like all big numbers: governments and corporations
TheMoatman: I've never bought paper clips in my life
lilyoswald: How
TehAmelie: well, paperclips are wonderful, if i've learned anything from The Good Place
Rockario: How often do you reuse a paperclip?
ani_laurel: we print a lot of shit
Reecer6: So, we're still at like, below quota for a paperclip manufacturer.
Fruan: I would love to see you guys talk about the next phase of this game.
TheMoatman: I'm sure people have bought the clips I've used, or actually I'm not. I'm pretty sure they just appear in and around desks
JDogg2K4: so is this game entirely selling paperclips?
Scar_Red_Tiger: Live dangeroussly

HydraWiggins: when I was playing warhammer, I discovered a shop that sold piano wire cheaper than I could get paperclips
BrindleBoar: oh god, so much time spent in swarm simulator
Koshindan: My favorite idle game.
TehAmelie: i've bought exactly one box of paperclips in my life, to stick on my lapels to annoy nazis
Tantusar: The amount of paperclips you are selling is actually currently *below* the rate of use in the US.
CarsmushPromthenSpupplins: ewwwwwwwwww
lilyoswald: so this is basically playing the zerg?
WeedenProject: Cam just reminded me that I need to buy some paperclips for pinning my own warhammer
Laserbeaks_Fury: Do you want Zerg? because this is how you get Zerg
PaperDoopliss: I'm told that this paperclip maximizer is the first step toward a post-scarcity paradise for humanity. Confirm or deny.
asthanius: RETRIEVE MEAT
Rockario: They just..."find" meat for us
Tantusar: You're making a fuckton of paperclips and America still uses more in a year.
tergonis: there's a mobile version of swarm sim now
PunkRockZoologist: I’m listening... says the entomologist.
Laserbeaks_Fury: "use" paperclips
TheMoatman: But with octopus spawners you can get a few hundred million clams per second really easily, and with later upgrades you can turn that 1:1 into jellyfish, which can then be converted to 5 science each. It really cracks the science economy (and everything else)
Akaiatana: They can breed by dating on Larva Life
Laserbeaks_Fury: Same here, Cameron
DarkNacht: Shouldn't capitalism simulator be 99% externalities?
azlinea: @PaperDoopliss confirm
PaperDoopliss: Ah, good! I was worried for a moment
azlinea: :)
asthanius: I appreciate how these types of games make it very obvious that games can be boiled down to numbers and the interactions between those numbers. It's the story on top of the numbers that makes a game.
PunkRockZoologist: I will not do the thing that scientists are apparently expected to do and be all pedantic about the “accuracy” of this game. It just sounds fascinating.
cryptogamby: I forget the name but there’s a similar click game that slowly evolves into an rpg built completely out of text so bushes would be mixes of slashes and hashtags
Taveena: We all know that Steve Rogers' shield is coated in Flubber, anyway.
azlinea: candy box?
PunkRockZoologist: You’re welcome.
Reecer6: did you guys know that new years is arbitrary
Reecer6: because it's coming up on new years so you should know it
ElementalAlchemist: hi everyone
e_bloc: did you know that literally everything is arbitrary
mtvcdm: Did you guys know you can just use space jump?
Havok4: My favorite NDT joke is a friends mismatched starfield bathing suit pieces will get NDT to yell at her.
ArgentumFlare: The only Science communicator I care about anymore is Hank Green
ElementalAlchemist: All days are arbitrary
ritchards: Did you know that LRR is good people???
OriginalGarwulf: On a semi-related note, Disney's The Black Hole is a REALLY trippy movie.
FlyingUltraCar: repeating jokes? cameron "click on heads" lauder would never repeat a joke Kappa
ani_laurel: WHAT!
Laserbeaks_Fury: Telling the same joke over and over? Well, science is repeatable results. Kappa
Tantusar: Oh no, Christmas isn't timed accurately to the event it celebrates! The horror!
Rockario: "How can we bring science into pop culture?" "Well, dunking hard on stuff in really popular right now"
Izhuark: Charts !
Reecer6: ooh! charts!
RvLeshrac: The point of the arbitrary holiday thing is why not celebrate today, why wait?
RealGamerCow: twitch, why you go to 160p?
Reecer6: any clicker game that can give me a chart is already good
CrmsnDragoon: humanity is a awful inconsistent mess! how dare us!
OriginalGarwulf: It also has a line from a professor saying that one day black holes will eat the entire universe.
LiveFaust: Honestly how I feel about NDT is about the same as my feelings about Richard Dawkins.
HydraWiggins: I refuse to accept that desert bus is arbitrary... oh wait
Reecer6: incredible this hive is working presumably on the streets, homeless
s0lesurviv0r: just joined, when did cookie clicker become text based?
OriginalGarwulf: (To the movie's credit, it does not say what he was a professor imagines it wasn't astrophysics.)
ContingentCat: Separating the person from their work, while problematic, is convenient, it's how I can read Heidegger
Robot_Bones: you must construct additional pylons
Laserbeaks_Fury: Speaking of Queen, has anyone seen Bohemian Rhapsody?
ArgentumFlare: Get into the blaggole
PaperDoopliss: @LiveFaust Senior Scientist Syndrome?
ritchards: It has the best Evil Robot ever!
Laserbeaks_Fury: awww, BOB was my favorite character
RealGamerCow: I watched Black Hole in 2nd grade assembly.
OriginalGarwulf: The soundtrack was written by the guy who did the Bond movie soundtracks at the time.
RvLeshrac: Also unnecessarily bad science in pop culture breeds scientific illiteracy, a bit like unnecessarily bad IT in pop culture has helped breed computer illiteracy.
Reecer6: yeah i *figure* dawkins has made some important contributions to whatever he does but his tweets will always overshadow that
ritchards: I based my Minecraft skin on the Max robot!
Tantusar: I need to not rewatch The Black Hole. That main theme got stuck in my head for literally hours afterwards. I was a child. I was crying for many of those hours.
RomanGoro: Are they dropping frames or is my internet all derpy?
LiveFaust: @paperdoopliss Dawkins just kinda became sexist and racist. NDT is just pedantic.
Anaerin: I'm surprised you're not playing the original Idle Sim - Progress Quest!
FITorion: My brothers had Black Hole wall paper
e_bloc: we did it
OriginalGarwulf: I found the movie on DVD - Disney decided to make a response to Star Wars, and somehow hit Alien and Event Horizon instead (which is impressive, seeing as Event Horizon wasn't made yet).
RealGamerCow: You win!
ritchards: You won!
asthanius: Your computer is filled with swarms
lilyoswald: my daughter loves that song
DiscordianTokkan: Is... Swarm simulator one of those bitcoin miners that you guys mentioned last time?
OriginalGarwulf: If you're watching it as an adult, it's a horror movie.
ContingentCat: congradulations your computer is now a swarm
asthanius: Swarm Sim is definitely making you drop frames
Scrubbodiestobears: everything is lagging out, seems on brand for zerg to me
Rockario: I saw that exact "No Papa" as a comic with Windows and Chrome
LiveFaust: Swarm Simulator ON CHROME? Yeah... memory is delicious.
RomanGoro: Yeah, stream froze to me again
battlemonk: ^
Tantusar: The problem with large number generators is that they generate large numbers.

Edgarware: I think its Twitch problems
KeirenH: audio is currently running, but you're frozen
RvLeshrac: Paul has converted the stream into a frame-drop based clicker.
Rockario: Are we playing a new clicker game called "Drop the frrames"?
FITorion: buffering
CrmsnDragoon: adding two numbers together is cheap, adding many numbers together at 60 fps and redraw the screen and... yeah it's a lot
e_bloc: everything seems to be fine to me. . .
OriginalGarwulf: I'm seeing both picture and hearing audio.
Reecer6: if you drop enough frames you can recycle them into a short film

OriginalGarwulf: But, I'm also using a Twitch player app.
solahwin_tampramain: drop again
Uristqwerty: Antimatter Dimensions developed a JavaScript library that can handle gigantic numbers (1e100000 and above), but Swarm Simulator is an old enough game that it might just use Big Numbers directly, with the downside of caring about the least significant digit at all times.
asthanius: Trap Imp. Trimp
Tantusar: Thanks ants. Thants.
FITorion: audio continued through the frame drop
Scarbble: bless you ants. Blants.
e_bloc: yup there it goes
ContingentCat: cool so it's like A Dark Room
DiscordianTokkan: When you started building the trap it stole frames
ContingentCat: hi Kathleen

RealGamerCow: Statistics, Cameron. Delicious delicious statistics.

DiscordianTokkan: Boom, Frame drop
lost_tv01: its a clicker of some sort?
ContingentCat: sortof
DiscordianTokkan: Wait, that might've been on my end
Rockario: This is literally an RTS, that's amazing

Rockario: Finding THOSE things are what the algorithm shouldd be usedd for
BrindleBoar: Babou!
mtvcdm: Shitposting is a one-time silly derailing of the topic at hand. Sometimes fun and sometimes not.
TheMoatman: It is *the most florida* amendment possible
Laserbeaks_Fury: yeah that was was a weird amendment to read about
Uristqwerty: Seen /r/incremental_games?
VoidByAnyOtherName: impists
BrindleBoar: Art: Not even once.
muondecay: The Dhali museum in florida is pretty neat though
Rockario: As opposed to Deli, which is delicious
Laserbeaks_Fury: I'm like "I don't have anything against vaping, but can we not drill for oil"
RvLeshrac: Don't
RvLeshrac: Don't forget to Save your game.
cryptogamby: It’s less dada than nihilist, Gen z has a huge upset in societal anxiety so the concept of meaning is questioned at the very beginning, we’re restarting!
PunkRockZoologist: Yeah, Picasso was a right shitbag as well apparently.
Laserbeaks_Fury: did you just drop frames again?
cryptogamby: The drilling/vaping amendment is a consequence of Florida amendment council trying to squeeze things together, but both beingcurved isn’t an issue so easy yes vote
tehcrashxor: Dear Drs LRR, what are you drinking?
Anaerin: What's the deal with all these clicker games!
Robot_Bones: Dropping frames stream>
Robot_Bones: ?
Rockario: Interesting that the fight results keep saying "You killed a [x]", when really it's your Trimps doing the fighting
CrmsnDragoon: "your enslaved minions killed a thing" "I killed a thing"
DiscordianTokkan: Yeah, a bunch more frames dropped
piediepiedie: Hello!

fcg_shadow: food :)

lost_tv01: so; I do not have a patience for this game; its cool, but I cannot
El_Spectre: XCOM. XCOM defies mathematics and numbers.
wildpeaks: all the quantums \o/
Tantusar: my only weakness
Laserbeaks_Fury: Wall of Tables sounds like a MTG card. It should be a flip card Kappa
Reecer6: prescriptivism still requires people to actually use the word that way
FITorion: any of these argegate scores from multiple people?
ContingentCat: it gets tricky with lots of quantum computers, they won't all be black or white together
P4r7YG0D: Hey Camn, would you be willing to do a big multiplayer stream for patrons on stellaris? like if we organized it?
RealGamerCow: jack up that price per clip!
OriginalGarwulf: Why is there so much unsold inventory?
RvLeshrac: But when they're all working, you get an astonishing amount.
lost_tv01: @El_Spectre xcom makes people mad because the human brain has a habit of seeing 70% as 100%; and then getting mad because reality doesn't match their perceptions
ContingentCat: eh if they align you can get a lot of ops, and at some points you have nothing else to get so, eh
someusername5: maximize rev per sec?

El_Spectre: No, XCOM makes people mad because it says 100% when it means 99.3% Also, thin men.
CrmsnDragoon: gigacubes of paperclips
Rockario: We were told to "Make" paperclips, not "Sell" paperclips
CrmsnDragoon: Buying out a competitor builds trust
CrmsnDragoon: our organizing org is an idiot
DiscordianTokkan: Pardonbus?
Reecer6: Obviously, destroying your rival is just one action. You get the material required, and then you do it. It isn't complicated.
El_Spectre: Universal paperclips used to be a wire company, then things took a turn.
ContingentCat: non-paperclip matter is our rival
wildpeaks: you totally misheard *whispers in hidden microphone* he knows
Skudd: Part of me wants to ask "how can you play this" and then another part of me insists on reminding me of the multiple occasions on which I've spent hours playing Cookie Clicker.
asthanius: They just happen to ALSO sell paperclips
tehcrashxor: They're not an adversary! They're raw materials.
Tantusar: Anti-Trust Commission?
EsperDerek1: I love that you've actually only sold about five million of those paperclips
Laserbeaks_Fury: very Battle Royake
CrmsnDragoon: can't run an anti trust commission without paperclips, we will be fine
Senstaku: They were less an adversary and more a loot crate.
El_Spectre: Was it Cam that referred to dead people in PUBG as 'highly curated loot crates' ?
ContingentCat: you have a marketing upgrade avalible
niccus: these are usually classical game theory situations like prisoner's dilemma, chicken, etc
Brok3nGol3m: Cori, thanks for sharing Trimps. I am now addicted.
newfur: Split/Steal
niccus: the show was called, no lie, Golden Balls
TheIdleIdol: Me: I should see what my favorite streamers are up to, to distract me from the NYT live spreadsheet of election results *finds another spreadsheet*
RealGamerCow: There's a really good webpage that shows this question played out.
ritchards: lrrDARK
MacSquizzy: @TheIdleIdol same
CrmsnDragoon: Split gets the most but people never agree to it
ContingentCat: hi Kathleen
DoodlestheGreat: Hi Kathleen.
DiscordianTokkan: Intimidating for fair outcomes: JUSTICE!
BrindleBoar: see also: why they don't let the subjects converse during that experiment
someusername5: can we buy more megaclips
someusername5: megaclippers
Laserbeaks_Fury: I still need to play Sheriff
Gekyouryuu: I've PLAYED Sheriff. it's a TON of fun
RealGamerCow: My nephew lies EVERY time in Sheriff of Nottingham. And yet we still bite some of the times.
CrmsnDragoon: Sheriff is a quick way to find out which of your friends are OK with you winning :P
Laserbeaks_Fury: I like the idea of bribery over the hidden agenda games
MacSquizzy: Have they figured out how to use the quantum computer?
asthanius: The 999 series uses the Prisoner's Dilemma very well in all three games
Reecer6: i'm super interested in what this is but do not know how to look it up
RealGamerCow: there is a TON of meta in Sheriff
azlinea: On the topic of prisoner'
korvys: Right. We used to play Mafia on the LRR forums, and I remember a player getting very upset when someone said they were lying (cause they weren't), but it's like... I have to think you're lying, cause that's the game.
MacSquizzy: @Reecer6 this game is called paperclips, if you just google paperclips game you should find it
azlinea: crap. On the topic of prisoner's dilemma has anyone read the quantum thief?
MacSquizzy: It's also on mobile
Reecer6: @MacSquizzy I mean the Youtube series Cori was talking about.
MacSquizzy: @Reecer6 oh
El_Spectre: I did, but it didn't end the way it did for you, azlinea :)
Laserbeaks_Fury: I tend to play very upfront, which is more a metagame strategy for me
