LOL Mikey

Apparently a schizophasic woo-addled mind is in a higher state of consciousness than one in touch with reality. I'll grant that's the case if drugs are involved.

Also, I love how CSTDT has tons of posts like this one that aren't even conspiracies, but they still feel like they belong here. There is no conspiracy whatsoever in this, yet if I saw it in FSTDT, I'd most likely refile it here in CSTDT. That's where it feels like it belongs in my gut. I can't really put my finger on why that is. Perhaps I need to work on my consciousness.

I wish my modly minions would actually use their ability to give quote awards. I love awards.

@shy:

I did not know we were allowed to. Very glad to hear this.

The Continuum Hypothesis proposes


The continuum hypothesis is already a thing and this isn't it. Also, this drivel isn't a hypothesis, it's something that was pulled out of in-between your glutes.

For example on a personal level we could discuss just what it is that we have been doing for the past million years.


I have been very busy not existing for the past million years.

And possible make plans for what we are going to be doing for the next million years.


Once again, I'm going to be very busy not existing. My remains will be decomposing for a comparatively short amount of time, and fossilization would be cool so I'd need to call up a geologist while I'm alive so I can choose a good place to curl up and die.

I think it's the writing style and the topic that does it for me. It has the sort of craziness that I associate with conspiracy theorists, new agers, and cranks.

Maybe we should rename all the categories?

FSTDT (fanatics say the darndest things): if it sounds like "WHARBGARBL!!!" or "Blood for the blood God", it goes here.

WSTDT (woo-pushers say the darndest things): if it sounds like "the pulse of the cosmic consciousness can heal your thirteenth chackra," then it belongs here.

BSTDT (bigots say the darndest things): if it sounds like "men are animals, women are plants, atheists are inorganic material, and black people are congealed grease," then it belongs here.

In other words, if I was admin and had unrestricted room to experiment, I'd categorize by the way it's presented instead of the actual subject matter. Or just use tags and categorize by both.

@Pharaoh: Just don't put awards on every quote. Then it wouldn't be fun anymore. Save the awards for the extra witty and funny things you come up with that can fit in a small number of words.

@pyro: I've thought about changing the name of it. I might put it up for vote. Woo-meisters Say the Darndest Things really is a more accurate name for this section. I wouldn't even have to change the cover image! I like the little green alien presenting that... whatever it is he has there. Anyone want to have a guess at what that thing even is? It looks like an amoeba in some kind of alien-crystal-ball-thingy to me.

That doesn't really work though because not all conspiracies involve woo.

Yes, it's a hypothesis.

Waiting for confirmatory evidence... What, you thought a hypothesis was sufficient? Idiot.

@Shy, since you're here... I can't enlarge FSTDT on the iPad any more (used to be able to), so the only way I could read this was to save image, go into my photos, and blow it up. The same "too small" problem exists with any text in block quotes. The whole thing has an inch of dead space each side, thus the whole site is small. Why can't I pinch-and-expand any more on iPad? Any solutions?

Thanks.

@Kanna I'm gonna blame jQuery. I strongly suspect it's to blame, because Firefox tells me images are scaled to 0 x 0. Uhh, no?? I've also seen that on other pages that use jQuery to work with images. I've noticed this problem pop up recently on my phone and Thaine's iPad. It seems to only affect mobile devices so far as I'm aware. I'm working right now on manually writing the JavaScript to do image-sizing myself. It should be complete in a couple hours at the most.

Should be working now. I tested scaling pages and images on FSTDT using both my old and current phone, and I can confirm both work perfectly on:

- The default browsers on Android and Ubuntu Touch
- Recent versions of Firefox Mobile
- Opera Mobile 12
- Opera Mini (albeit with a bit of lag)

Barring any device- or OS-specific bugs, this means scaling images and pages should, at least in theory, also work on any smartphone or tablet running a WebKit-, Gecko-, or Presto-based mobile browser and isn't absurdly ancient: Opera Mobile 13+, UC Browser, NetFront, Maxthon, the default browsers on Tizen, Firefox OS, most Nokia devices, etc. It probably includes mobile Safari, but it uses a custom JavaScript engine, so I can't confirm that for sure until I can test it on my husband's iPad when he gets home from work. I can confirm it at least works in regular Safari on my MacBook Pro. However, it doesn't include mobile Internet Explorer or Edge, and I don't have anything to test those with.

Howdy. I've been hunting down woo-mongers for the past million years and introducing them to 3-dimensional, non-metaphysical bats possessing consciousness-ceasing volume and mass.

@shy @everyone
things are working in mobile safari on my ipod touch. i never had trouble tapping images to enlarge them. zooming the page in and out with my fingers did something, but i wouldn't call what it did "working". seems fixed now. :3

@Shy

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

@Mikey, @Kanna: You're welcome. :3 That was actually something I could easily fix myself without doing major changes that would be a total waste of time and effort because the site's moving to another server this fall, and that's going to be accompanied by that elusive rewrite I keep talking about. At this point, doing a lot of work to fix long-standing bugs in the current codebase is like rearranging chairs on the Titanic unless whatever it is actually breaks the site.

jQuery can curl up and die.
