[11:41] Put: go over there and slap his ass

Right... No, I don't think so, Put.

[03:05] <Brandonazz> Gau!
[03:06] <Kratok> Why would he respond to that
[03:06] <Kratok> Gauphastus
[03:06] <Brandonazz> Well I figured he put his nicknames on ping like any sensible person would.
[03:07] <Kratok> His nickname isn't Gau though :F
[03:07] <Brandonazz> Then what is it <_<
[03:07] <Kratok> Gauph
[03:08] <Brandonazz> Well he still isn't responding
[03:08] <Brandonazz> =|
[03:08] <Gauphastus> Why doesn't Gau or Gauphastus ding me?
[03:09] <Gauphastus> ****ing IRC sometimes.
[03:09] <Kratok> So Gauph got you?
[03:10] <Gauphastus> Test the other forms for me now. I might have fixed it.
[03:10] <Kratok> Mmh? Whats going on
[03:10] <Oviraptor> Gau
[03:10] <Oviraptor> Gauph
[03:10] <Gauphastus> And..
[03:11] <Kratok> Gauphastus
[03:11] <Gauphastus> Yay.
[03:11] <Oviraptor> Moo!
[03:11] <Gauphastus> Well, they all work now.
[03:11] <Gauphastus> You can't have spaces in the highlighter.
[03:11] <Gauphastus> Just the commas between the words.
[03:11] <Kratok> I thought you didn't like Gau :U
[03:11] <Gauphastus> I don't but sometimes people call me that.
[03:11] <Gauphastus> Actually, I don't really care.
[03:11] <Gauphastus> But I do have a preference.
[03:12] <Gauphastus> Still, the full name is a bit ridiculous to type sometimes.
[03:12] <Gauphastus> It'd be like me calling Ovi Oviraptor all the time.
[03:12] <Oviraptor> Hehe
[03:12] <Kratok> Now you see Bran?
[03:12] <Gauphastus> Let's see how fast I can type it, leaving in any errors I make.
[03:12] <Gauphastus> Oviraptor ovitraptor ovic oviraptor ovitrp
[03:12] <Gauphastus> Damn it.
[03:12] <Kratok> ovirpater
[03:12] <Gauphastus> I don't even know how I hit c.
[03:12] <Gauphastus> What the hell.
[03:12] <Gauphastus> Oviraptor ovit
[03:12] <Gauphastus> ****.
[03:12] <Gauphastus> Haha.
[03:13] <Kratok> ovvireparr
[03:13] <Oviraptor> :D
[03:13] <Kratok> I always go for rapter
[03:14] <Oviraptor> *raptor
[03:15] <Brandonazz> Yes I see Kratok
[03:15] <Brandonazz> That he also considers Gau a nickname
[03:15] <Brandonazz> And I am therefore correct :P
[03:15] <Kratok> Well then Bran raisin, the problem is solved isn't it
[03:15] <Gauphastus> Oh, wait. Back to the point.
[03:15] <Gauphastus> Why did you need me?
[03:15] <Brandonazz> Oh right

I, for one, endorse this thread.

[22:25] <Celdur> i dont need half
[22:25] <Celdur> its not one or the other

I don't know what was up with everyone's math there.
In a pure three way election you wouldn't need over 50% of the vote, but 34% wouldn't mean an automatic victory.
Of course, needing 80% of the vote doesn't make much sense either.

Imagine you had Candidate A, Candidate B and Candidate C running for office somewhere.
Candidate A runs a solid campaign and ends up with 34% of the vote.
Candidate B makes about twenty-five different gaffes the weekend before the election and drives away much of his potential constituancy, ending up with about 17% of the vote.
Candidate C turns out to be charming, quick, politically wise and the day of the election reveals she has in fact been Lily Tomlin the whole time. The move goes over well. She ends up winning the election with 49% of the vote.

Electorally probable? No.
Mathematically possible? Yes.

YAY MATH!

We weren't talking about politics, we were talking about winning the diplomatic victory in Civilisation. I was telling them you need more than 50%. (In my mind you needed 66% but apparently it's 80%, boo memory.) And everyone else was saying you only need one third or whatever of the votes to win. So I was right all along and everyone called me a moron until Celdur actually found out I was right, at which point they continued saying I was wrong for whatever backwards reason. Go figure. ::)
