Log from #Classroom on Sunday, April 28, 2013 at 7PM EDT: “Pinging, Part 2: The Experiment”, hosted by Jonn:
[19:24:45] <Jonn> alright. i will start now.
[19:25:02] <Jonn> how many of you attended the first part on pinging?
[19:25:07] <DJ_Ephraim> me
[19:25:20] <E[X]ILED> Not me, nor Keltia
[19:25:27] <jtbill> i wasn’t :/
[19:25:31] <Keltia> Not I, sorry.
[19:25:53] <Little_Dragon> ok, now I am active. The person has finished pulling me away form the computer and changing my mood from calm to stressed the hell out and I am able to destress in the next few minutes.
[19:25:54] <simica> Nope wasnt here but I am just here to observe
[19:26:03] <Jonn> okay. how many of you are familiarized with pinging
[19:26:15] <jtbill> i went over the post
[19:26:17] <TashRikil> i know how it works.
[19:26:37] <Little_Dragon> anyway, feeling better now :3
[19:26:43] <DJ_Ephraim> i do based on last week
[19:26:52] <E[X]ILED> i’m still not 100% sure what pinging is.. other than to ping someone on irc :/
[19:26:55] <Keltia> I’m not, again, I’m sorry.
[19:27:08] <Jonn> okay
[19:27:28] <Jonn> pinging works like pinging on irc
[19:27:33] <DJ_Ephraim> brb, being nagged -.-
[19:27:42] <Jonn> but as a telepathic mean
[19:28:28] <Jonn> is that enough to understand the concept of ping?
[19:28:42] <Jonn> i want to be short on this as i already covered it
[19:28:53] <E[X]ILED> so basically to grab someone’s attention
[19:29:09] <Jonn> however, i will gladly answer all questions not relevant to todays class in the end.
[19:29:46] <Jonn> it is the equivalent of tapping someone on the shoulder to get someones attention using telepathy
[19:29:54] <Jonn> a simple “hey”
[19:30:55] <Jonn> okay.
[19:30:59] <jtbill> okay
[19:31:26] <Jonn> i will juno straight to what is relevant today. i can explain methods later in case of doubt
[19:31:28] <DJ_Ephraim> back
[19:31:52] <Jonn> i will propose here a short simple experiment
[19:32:38] <Jonn> first of all, each of you who want to participate need a partner
[19:32:56] <Jonn> please pair up with anyone you want, and one of the formed pair pm me
[19:33:14] <Jonn> with the name of your partner
[19:33:30] <Jonn> 5 minutes. please partner up.
[19:33:40] <DJ_Ephraim> LD, wanna partner up again?
[19:34:18] <Little_Dragon> I am going with jtbill
[19:34:26] <DJ_Ephraim> ok
[19:34:40] <Little_Dragon> Him and I have a better chemistry overall and as such will be more likely to want to tap into each other’s minds.
[19:34:47] * DJ_Ephraim nods
[19:35:08] <jtbill> o.o
[19:35:10] <Little_Dragon> In fact, I am now engaged to him. See the ring? *KIDDING*
[19:35:14] <jtbill> creepy choice of words xD
[19:35:16] <jtbill> XD
[19:35:25] <jtbill> again! stop thinking what im thinking XD
[19:35:36] <jtbill> tis creepy
[19:35:41] <DJ_Ephraim> i take it that E[X]ILED and Keltia are paired, so, Jonn, wanna partner up?
[19:35:44] <Little_Dragon> not really, it’s a known fact that people who seem to be more interested in each other tend to do better with telepathy.
[19:35:53] <E[X]ILED> good guess eph
[19:35:55] <Jonn> sure thing, DJ_Ephraim
[19:36:09] <Jonn> TashRikil: what about you?
[19:37:51] <TashRikil> i think i will just watch this one.
[19:38:22] <Aerys> Are we starting?
[19:38:41] <Jonn> aerys needs a partner
[19:38:47] <Jonn> cheer up
[19:39:48] <Jonn> aerys, can you find a partner?
[19:40:00] <Aerys> Does everyone in this room already have one?
[19:40:46] <Aerys> If so it would take too long for me to explain to somebody how to connect
[19:40:57] <Aerys> I can just watch and wait for someone to come along though
[19:41:01] <Keltia> I can just watch, I’ve never done this and you can partner with x.
[19:41:32] <Aerys> Are you sure?
[19:41:34] <Jonn> Keltia: this requires no previous experience
[19:41:43] <Keltia> yes I am.
[19:41:55] <Aerys> I mean I don’t have a long history with telepathy either
[19:42:36] <Keltia> x has found me, but I’ve never found him
[19:42:53] <Jonn> okay. anyone is welcome to join at a later time in the experiment records
[19:43:03] <Jonn> so, here is how it will work
[19:44:17] <Jonn> the idea of the experiment is to ping each other and keep a record of the time you believe you got pinged
[19:44:38] <Jonn> the rules are simple
[19:45:14] <Jonn> 1. the experiment will start on tuesday. you are free to practice until then
[19:45:51] <Jonn> 2. during the experiment, you will take note of the precise time you were pinged.
[19:46:29] <Jonn> 3. you will NOT share such record with anyone until the end of the experiment, which ends on sunday
[19:46:53] <E[X]ILED> we pinging only once? or multiple times?
[19:46:54] <Jonn> lets try to keep it as much as a blind test
[19:47:13] <Jonn> thats the next rule
[19:47:51] <Jonn> it is up to you partners to decide how many times you can ping each other and during which times
[19:47:52] <DJ_Ephraim> >.<
[19:47:53] <DJ_Ephraim> lol
[19:47:58] <Jonn> my suggestion
[19:48:42] <Jonn> i would go for three pings a day: one in the morning, one in the afternoon, and one in the evening
[19:49:00] <DJ_Ephraim> hrm, when nomming, ping
[19:49:16] <Jonn> this might sound like a giveaway, but to start, it will keep you alert
[19:49:52] <Jonn> but again, it is up to you to schedule things.
[19:50:19] <Jonn> any questions so far on the methodology?
[19:50:24] <E[X]ILED> oh wait
[19:50:34] <E[X]ILED> i’ll be out of town from thursday till monday
[19:50:56] <Little_Dragon> what if you work an afternoon shift and sleep during the morning?
[19:50:59] <Keltia> I’m sorry, I got kicked.
[19:51:37] <Jonn> E[X]ILED: you can still be pinged and take notes.
[19:51:40] <DJ_Ephraim> no, you got pinged >.<
[19:51:47] <DJ_Ephraim> [19:48:01] * Quits: +Keltia (~Keltia@PI-C395D91E.sub-70-208-1.myvzw.com) (Ping timeout)
[19:52:09] <Jonn> Little_Dragon: its up to you to sync schedules with your partner
[19:52:39] <Jonn> in my case, most of the times ill be taking note during work shift
[19:53:28] <Jonn> any questions?
[19:53:53] <jtbill> none at the moment @.@
[19:54:16] <Jonn> is the methodology clear tuen?
[19:54:28] <Little_Dragon> Why yes…if we are pinging off each other, how should we form the paddles to better direct the ping pong ball?
[19:54:30] <Little_Dragon> 😛
[19:54:38] <Little_Dragon> sorry, could not resist
[19:54:49] <Little_Dragon> Still think there is no such thing as a stupid question? 😛
[19:55:08] <jtbill> ill figure something out
[19:55:20] <Jonn> because there might be no instant pong?
[19:56:10] <jtbill> should we record the time and the ping when we SEND one?
[19:56:20] <Little_Dragon> ok, seriously…what are the main symptoms one usually feels when pinged?
[19:56:23] <Jonn> yes
[19:56:38] <Jonn> thats a good question
[19:56:56] <Aerys> It varies from person to person
[19:57:39] <Little_Dragon> ok, then what are the most common signs?
[19:58:22] <Jonn> in my experience, i feel like someone is staring at me. other times it feels like a knock sound in my head. all this comes accompanied (sp) or associated with a mental picture of someone or a memory of someone
[19:59:43] <E[X]ILED> in my experience, its like someone poked me.. but i’m just different i guess 😛
[20:00:10] <simica> At times for myself its the energy signature that links me to them. Like someone is pulling a string in my head
[20:00:24] <Little_Dragon> ok
[20:00:27] <jtbill> someone staring at me? damn that happened today o.O
[20:00:41] <Jonn> is your question answered?
[20:02:12] <Little_Dragon> yes, and I can not question the answer. I was just curious, really.
[20:03:06] <Jonn> ok
[20:03:18] <Jonn> any questions?
[20:03:55] <E[X]ILED> i got one, but pm okay?
[20:04:09] <Jonn> ok
[20:05:10] <Jonn> then this is it for tonight. those participating i will be answering questions during the whole procesa
[20:05:14] <Jonn> process*
[20:05:21] <simica> Thanks jonn

[20:06:25] <Jonn> i will quote and make coauthors those with interesting experiencrs
[20:06:30] <E[X]ILED> real quick.. we have to keep track of when we ping our partner and when we’re pinger, correct?
[20:06:31] <Jonn> experiences*
[20:06:37] <Jonn> yes
