When Yahtzee and Graham Collide

Matt could do a very good imitation in terms of the verbiage, speed, and flow. The accent isn't so much an issue... everyone says certain words a little differently, so the Candian accent could be just as humorous to people unfamiliar with it.

However, when Matt gets frusterated or angry, it seems his voice gets a litte pitchy, almost to the point of annoyance in my ears. That wouldn't flow so well as a good imitation of Yahtzee, which I would see as the make or break point with Matt. That said, I'd still love to see (hear?) a trial run.

Unrelated note: Sorry I haven't been around so much lately, folks. My job transitioned, so I'm working 14 hour days 4 days a week, and I don't have LRR access in the new department. Sucks, but atleast I still have a job.

hehe. thios means I coule theoretically have access to these files should I decde tofollow through on the overwhelming demand for an angry-matt ZP.

Are you drunk, Matt? :P

In all seriousness, though, this was amazing. Graham, you blew me away--AGAIN.

I have drawn a couple of Feynman diagrams for Grahams (G) scattering off Yahtzees (Y) by the exchange of internets (I). The top diagram is elastic scattering, the middle one inelastic scattering producing a single video and the bottom diagram is inelastic scattering producing two videos.

Further work in Quantum Humour on Internet Humour Theory (QHIT) will allow the cross sections of these interaction to be computed. While the internet propagators are well understood - they are a series of tubes - determining the nature of the vertex factors remains a challenge as the coupling constant is non trivial in this theory.

Early work with QHIT has shown that the YouTube showers caused by strong interactions involving balls to be highly favored.

Lord Chruser always makes me feel inadaquate. Evening 2stepz, 14 hours a day sucks, but I think I'd rather work four days a week.

I'm a physics major, and Lord Crusher still makes me feel inadequate. But I'm only in first year, so it makes sense. :P

Dear lord, these forums may implode if you and Crusher begin to throw physics at us. I love Physics myself but I was never good enough with the mathematical workings out to continue it into anything serious, so I'll just sit back and grin as the physics nerds slowly begin to creep into forums.

:D

:) I'm moving over to UVic for the next couple years, so I'll also be the 2nd Physics major based in Victoria.

I was considering going into physics, thus anchoring the country with LRR-Physics-geeks on both coasts. However, I have since decided to go into a comp-sci/business degree. I could always try to get enough courses to minor in physics though....or go back for another degree.....

Crusher, if we are doing calculations on Pipe flow, you might want to consider using the Constant mass form of the Stokes equations to calculate forces generated by changes in direction and speed of the particles, as well as differences in pressure due to widening and spreading of tubes.

I just realized something whilst listening to the LRRCast for "Xavier", and how Andy wanted to make a script for a video that started with X, thus completing the alphabet for LRR: Yahtzee recently said something about wanting to review a game for every letter of the alphabet - will he count "X-Blades"? Was this all a sinister plot for Yahtzee's alphabet domination? Do Yahtzee, Paul, and Graham sit around in an evil mansion made entirely out of solid gold Ferraris eating alphabet soup and alpha-bits cereal, laughing maniacally as they devour the helpless consonants and vowels, killing so many U's and leaving so many Q widows lonely and depressed? WHY WON'T YOU STOP THIS HORROR? WHY? MR. STARK, TEAR DOWN THIS BOWL!!!!!!

Of course not. Some of the Ferraris are platinum.

Why would you want a farrier made out of platinum? He wouldn't be up to much, and he certainly couldn't work any metal.

I enjoyed it. At first I was thinking "Who is this guy? This isn't Yahtzee..." A few moments later, it became "Who is this guy? I'm liking this and he does make some very valid points."

I was a little surprised to hear someone else's voice unannounced and it made me a little introverted, but I soon opened up when I realised I was actually enjoying what was being said regardless of who was saying it.

Yahtzee had to tell me who it was after being a LRR fan for years! The shame!

Okay, now you have to make a ZP-styled crew pic :D


Though you said you aren't going to be using those files for anything after this, Graham,....

I think he is. He's made several posts tonight I saw only briefly and then they were deleted. Some were really snarky.
