Sysop[edit]

I regret to inform you that having spent over two weeks here, you cannot escape the numbing inevitability of life demotion to sysop. Here's the guide, feel free to ask about anything. Cheers. Uke Blue 03:36, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Hiya--article you wrote.[edit]

"No pages link to Vulgar libertarianism." Can you find or create some germane links when you've a sec? Much obliged!P-Foster (talk) 03:57, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Your userboxes[edit]

Are awesome. Тиранесcrackle polytunnel, coach plastic? 02:57, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Glad you like my boxen. Blue, I am surprised by that -- I'd think this is an INTP haven. Although I also think MBTI is kinda bullshit. — Unsigned, by: Nebuchadnezzar / talk / contribs

I thought so too. But it seems INTPs are a rare bunch, even here. And imnsho, MBTI is the educated man's astrology. Uke Blue 04:25, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Hah! The I-E axis is valid, and I think the S-N axis is kind of like latent inhibition, but the other two are worthless. — Unsigned, by: Nebuchadnezzar / talk / contribs
It was interesting, though, how the test sliced me very neatly into the four categories (I was 97-100% certain for all of them). I don't think the test is inaccurate, per se, but it is rather meaningless. Uke Blue 04:49, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

minor edits[edit]

While I don't think there is an official policy, minor edits are pretty much spelling, grammer, wikilinks etc.Тиранесconfuse ripple, employ cold sore? 17:20, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Jewish atheist?[edit]

How is this possible, when being Jewish denotes that one has a religion? ConfickerInternational womon of mystery 16:30, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

It's not necessarily a religious identity. Many secular Jews like me view it as an ethnic and/or cultural identity. Some secular Jews who view themselves as agnostic atheists might have a naturalistic view of god when they consider whether they'd accept one. I hazard to guess that lots of Reconstructionist, Conservative, and Reform Jews are atheists. Have a look at wp:Mordechai Kaplan and wp:Jewish atheism.
Yep, we are in pretty good company too: Jewish atheists. As a Jewish atheist, I'm not just part of a mass conspiracy to undermine the Christian ValuesTM of the nation's children, I'm also stealing your money through the use fractional-reserve banking and brainwashing you through the use of the librul-Jewish media. It's a living. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 17:04, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
We at the Meta-Site would also like to know if you could clarify whether you are in grad school or an undergrad.ТyTalk. 23:06, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Article flood[edit]

Well done! What's generating the list of topics to work from? - David Gerard (talk) 00:24, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Nothing in particular, really. My semester has barely started, I'm kinda sick, and there's like 3 feet of snow outside and the city hasn't plowed a lot of it, so I have a shitload of time on my hands. It'll probably slow down exponentially by next week or so. :D Also, a lot of my contributions have been on libertarianism and economics, which were kind of content-dry when I signed up.Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 00:35, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

You may find this interesting, or at least funny. Тиранесhurt cinderblock,quantify scroll? 18:09, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Is this an attempt at a Constitution by some Christian militia nuts? If so, at least it's better than "God's law is higher than man's law. Period." Not sayin' too much, though. :D Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 00:31, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
This... thing as well ТyTalk. 03:47, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
Meh, I prefer Sealand myself. There was this awesome article called something like "The Tyranny of Public Libraries" I saw once, definitely a libertarian Poe. I have to find that one again.Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 03:53, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
I have heard an idiot on the local radio station, who calls himself a libertarian whenever the GOP does something he doesn't like, say that libraries are unfair competition for book stores. ТyTalk. 03:56, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, Instapundit-style libertarianism, or "glibertarianism." Damn that gummint for being able to do something the free market couldn't. And damn freely available information as well. Everyone knows you should have to pay $12.99 a book if you want to learn things. It's the 'Merican way! Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 04:02, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
Got it: It's called The Scourge of Public Libraries, good stuff.Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 03:53, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Nebby[edit]

I hope you do not mind me calling you Nebby, as I am too lazy to type out your full username. ТиранесAn moronic, yet expunge flan? 16:34, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

That's "Mr. Nebby" to you. :P Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 16:46, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
I don't know. "Nebby" is Pittsburghese for "bothersome, getting in one's business". Aboriginal Noise Oh, what a lovely tea party! 16:53, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Props[edit]

dude, you're making the rest of us look bad. Your contributions are greatly appreciated. P-Foster (talk) 04:38, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

And sexy. Uke Blue 04:43, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. :) Real LifeTM will encroach soon enough. RW is a good timekiller during "work" as a psych lab assistant too, i.e. when I run subjects in the computer lab, I have a computer, internets, and nothing to do for a good chunk of time.Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 04:53, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

Sorry 'bout that[edit]

I relocated Rich Iott incorrectly, thinking it was supposed to be a capital L, not a capital I. I hope I've reset things back to normal. Aboriginal Noise Oh, what a lovely tea party! 18:13, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

No prob, didn't even notice. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 18:14, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Some stuff[edit]

  1. You are doing a phenomenal job. You have made many many quality main-space edits.
  2. I have started reading Mencken's Damn!
  3. Could you please write an article on Enron? We had one once but it was a poem.

ТyTalk. 15:37, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

  1. Thanks again. 'Nother snow dump here means I'm still cooped up. Normally I love the snow (for skiing purposes especially) but it's getting ridiculous at this point.
  2. Nice. The first Chrestomathy is a good overview/collection of his stuff.
  3. Was actually meaning to get around to that. Enron was probably the most beautiful financial scheme in US history. Gotta do it proper justice.Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 22:32, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Since you seem to be the econ guy[edit]

Hypothetical, you find out you are invested in companies of dubious moral nature. When you achieve financial independence, what do you do? The amount you have invested is sizable, and you are "secretly" being observed.ТyTalk. 19:46, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Meh, I'm not really qualified enough to be "The Econ Guy." So in this "hypothetical" scenario, you are financially independent? You could always just slowly drain the money out. Or find some hit piece by a trader who hates the companies and use that as an excuse to pawn them off.Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 20:05, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
Hypothetically, yes. ТyTalk. 20:17, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Blue and something else I guess as the Star of David is usually in blue? I've been thinking of doing templates for Judaism and global warming, but it's fairly low on my priorities list since I'm really shit at any visual design stuff.Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 23:01, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Persecution[edit]

*Messily devours the Neobabylonian Emperor* Z-Rex (talk) 16:04, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Don't you usually want to keep your victims of persecution alive, y'know, for more persecution? Nebuchadnezzar(talk) 16:06, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
Only if they are female. The I eat them slowly, or I swallow them whole. You however are not female. And, as the Jewish branch of my family lives in New York somewhere, possibly related to me. Eating relations is bad form. Z-Rex (talk) 16:08, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Okay, will keep that in mind. I was going to move some of the links over but when I skimmed through them, they were all second-hand citations of the resources already in the confabulation article. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 02:02, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

I got one for you[edit]

I remembered this one at the family gathering I was at. The idea that the recession is entirely the fault of the media, because the media could not stomach the economy booming under bush, that they talked us into a rescission! This was was pretty big around here back in '08. Did you guys get that kinda stuff up there in icy rust land? ТyTalk. 22:45, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

I have to say that's a new one on me. The hardest brand of gibbering lunacy I've heard is the inevitable Jewish bankster conspiracy theories. It does sort of make sense in the wingnut versions of the stab-in-the-back legend, i.e. the hippies and the shadowy liberal cabal in control of the media made us lose Vietnam and Iraq, so they obviously must have the power to undermine the entire economy as well.Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 23:03, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
I don't here much about the Jews down here. Muslims yes, and how Obama is a Muslim Mob boss, and of course the evil atheists, but rather quiet about the Jews. Must be cause Duke left. ТyTalk. 23:07, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
It's not really that popular, it mostly comes from the local 9/11 troofers and the assorted cranks they attract, but their numbers have severely dwindled in recent years and everyone hates them anyway. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 23:22, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

I expect my check in the mail. :P Though I guess I do get indirectly paid for writing on RW -- i.e. part-time "work" on campus "security" (read: sitting behind a desk making people show you their ID cards while dicking around on your laptop, or, as they say, nice work if you can get it).

IP Bins[edit]

I think we're generally trying to block IPs, not bin them. Binning is permanent, and blocking usually suffices.--ADtalkModerator 04:03, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Gold[edit]

As our resident economic go-to person, do you think you could do an article about investing in gold? We've got bits of it here and there insound money, gold standard (economics), and Goldline, but we don't really have a centralized article on investing in gold. ThunderkatzHo! 17:10, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Shady gold stuff is generally done through high yield investment programs and advance fee fraud. Besides that, it's usually stuff like Goldline or just outright fake gold. If you add gold-related stuff to the first two articles, I think you'd have much of it covered.Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 18:17, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Question[edit]

How hard was the GRE? ТyAhoy! 22:51, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

The math is a joke, really. There's nothing above high school/low-level college math on it -- I don't think there's even any calculus. The reading/writing parts are more difficult, but I didn't think they were too bad. There always seems to be at least one question in those sections that doesn't make a damn bit of sense and there's the occasionally really esoteric vocab question, but not terribly difficult overall. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 22:57, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
Well, I'm CS, and I got a 790 on the SAT verbal, so I just have to panic about the writing section and subject test. Yay studying.ТyNo 22:59, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
Oh yeah, I forgot you're CS -- in that case, your biggest challenge on the math section will probably be not falling asleep.Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 23:03, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

Good for the Lite FM circuit, but not much else. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 04:03, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
Well, Best of Sade it was one of the first non-Christmas music cds I was given, so I have a bit of attachment for it. It beats MOAR BURL IVES! ТyTalk 04:10, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Why psychology? Тytalk 03:02, 27 August 2011 (UTC)

I didn't choose it...it chose me. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 03:05, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
Interesting response, people often tell me I should be psychoanalyzed. Do you wish to teach, go into the professional world, or something else? Тytalk 03:08, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
Destined for further academic slave labor, likely. I also don't touch abnormal psych -- those of us in cognitive psych tend to see it as the quackiest branch of the field. Psychoanalysis makes me cringe -- Freud may have been important in terms of popularizing talk therapy, but I think there's a good argument to be made that he actually set research psychology as a whole back. Fortunately, it's mostly regarded as quackery these days. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 03:17, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
Good. I was sent to a psychologist as a child, I didn't care for it. Тytalk 03:21, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
A lot of the research in the field is much closer to biology andcomputer science than Dr. Katz.Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 03:27, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
Dude, I know more about CS and Bio than I do about pop culture or modern television. So, my scheme to be psychoanalyzed has been foiled.Тytalk 03:30, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
That it has. One thing I find particularly interesting is where psychology and history overlap -- conspiracy theories are a gold mine for that. Unfortunately, the last time a major attempt was made to combine the two it was utter bullshit, so many are reluctant to tread in that territory. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 03:50, 27 August 2011 (UTC)

YouTube is not my life[edit]

You suck. That was five minutes of my life, an entire twelfth part of an hour, that I will never...

Oh, wait; not only was that was a fun little romp, but it validated my YT avoidance and gave me a smug sense of knowing all about it. Grin factor about equal to that of Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along video blog. Thanks! Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 12:42, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

email[edit]

You should enable it. Тайговорить20:21, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

But then they would know how to find me. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 20:43, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
You can just enable it, email me, and disable it. Hell I think I once posted a link here to a page with my full name on it. Тайговорить 20:51, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
Is there something I should know? Well, there are a lot of things I should know, but you know what I mean...you know?Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 02:21, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
