Mårch Röck Såbbåth 3:18:30 PM
Nice! Todd Solondz tells the truth about Jersey
Mårch Röck Såbbåth 3:18:57 PM
I am surprised he is still alive after doing so
Captain Ahab (host) 3:18:58 PM
I'm doing pretty well despite annoying travel on Monday! A bit behind on writing but gonna catch up this week
Rofflestomp 3:21:52 PM
Geebbers, I would not like you writing schedule if you are in course work now. Dunno, but I wish you luck for sure..
Captain Ahab (host) 3:22:33 PM
I'm not in classes, just finishing up my dissertation :)
Captain Ahab (host) 3:22:47 PM
But thank you! I need all the luck I can get haha
Rofflestomp 3:25:26 PM

Rob F 3:28:05 PM
Hi Captain, what's the dissertation on?
Captain Ahab (host) 3:29:07 PM
It is a cultural history of time in 15th-16th century of Istanbul :)
Captain Ahab (host) 3:29:26 PM
How people understood time, how they shaped their day, how they thought about the future etc
Captain Ahab (host) 3:29:36 PM
Calendars, etc
Mårch Röck Såbbåth 3:29:38 PM
Ahab is writing about how Ozzy sings w/ the riffs and Dio across them.

Temptress 👍
Rob F 3:32:38 PM
I just asked chatgpt about it. Interesting
Rofflestomp 3:33:38 PM
Time is so personal. To look at our perception of it all and our interpretation of the records is.well, quite personal. All good, it's what we do.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:35:06 PM
For sure, but there are important large scale historical differences between then and now that we can analyze, like the absence of precise clocks, and the fact that all cultures had their own calendars rather than agreeing to use the same one like we do today. The fact that we can eat certain fruits and vegetables year round rather than only in their season, as it used to be, are all things we can reflect on
Mårch Röck Såbbåth 3:35:09 PM
Godzilla Too Drunk should cover DK's Too Drunk to Fuck
Rob F 3:36:10 PM
adoption of the Islamic lunar calendar. The day was divided into two 12-hour periods, further divided into six equal parts, with the length of each part changing throughout the year to reflect the changing length of daylight
Rofflestomp 3:36:49 PM
Stone clocks indeed.
Rob F 3:37:06 PM
I think subdividing a day can be more productive in a way
Captain Ahab (host) 3:37:50 PM
"The day was divided into two 12-hour periods," This is true, was the case for lots of Mediterranean societies, and is called seasonal hours
Captain Ahab (host) 3:38:09 PM
"further divided into six equal parts," dunno what this is a reference to!!
Mårch Röck Såbbåth 3:38:50 PM
Subdivisions. - Rush
DSM 3:40:43 PM
Heyo Captain and all chat house dwellers
Rob F 3:40:49 PM

Captain Ahab (host) 3:41:03 PM

Rofflestomp 3:41:05 PM
Sun and Moon and seeding, harvesting, but I guess the latter was more hey yo, it's time. lol

Just getting on chat. Hearing some skipping/glitches on FM.
Andy Wing 3:57:35 PM

Rofflestomp 4:00:46 PM
Thanks for stuff Ahab! Gonna listen off in the wonderful darkness. Or what ever I think it is at the moment. Hard jam imperative? Oh yeah. Best of the best to your study challenges. Be true and you win. :) Love you dear. Later
Brian D 4:02:10 PM
Can you translate all time on your dissertation to metric time please? No rush. Couple megaseconds is fine
Rofflestomp 4:02:48 PM
Math Brian? lol
Captain Ahab (host) 4:03:19 PM

Captain Ahab (host) 4:03:29 PM

Brian D 4:09:55 PM
Person who invented the clock: There will be 12 numbers on it. Friend: So the day will be divided into 12 segments? Inv: No, 24. Friend: Oh so the day will start at 1? Inv: The day will start at the 12 which is at night. Friend: ....... Inv: The 6 means 30.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:10:51 PM
lol! pretty much
Brian D 4:19:01 PM
Kid: Is 50 enough? Parent: No, I don't think so. Kid: What about 125? Parent: No that's not enough either. Try 90. Kid: So 90 is more than 125? Parent: Yes. [<-- what are they referring to here? ]
Rob F 4:20:06 PM
Heard a podcaster talk about he divided his waking hours into 2 days of sort. So sleeping 8 hours, then 2 8 hour days.
Brian D 4:21:51 PM
Getting those pause blip / skip glitches today ya. But better than audio stopping completely.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:22:10 PM
Interesting riddle Brian, something tells me it has to do angles, but I'm not sure
Captain Ahab (host) 4:22:44 PM
Darn! Well I'm not gonna try and finagle things in the middle of the show unless it gets really bad, I did a clean restart and everything today, that's disappointing
Andy Wing 4:23:01 PM
