Idea Explosionifier

<mouser> please make a NANY 2009 web service, even just a tiny one!!
<Allen> I would love to, but I don't have an idea!
<mouser> lets think of one for you
<Allen> The thing is, you aren't good at coming up with Tiny ideas.
<mouser> :(...
<mouser> my ideas are like those sponge capsule animals
<mouser> they start tiny
<mouser> and explode
<Allen> It's true.
<mouser> before they even leave my mouth
<mouser> my idea explosionifier kicks in
<Allen> You should have an identity change. Become "Spong Capsule Laying Bird"
<mouser> maybe dc needs a more unique mascot
<mouser> cody with a coin in his mouth
<mouser> and some cds coming out of his rump
<mouser> standing on a computer keyboard
<mouser> with a stovepipe hat
<mouser> and a monacle
<Allen> Maybe sponge capsules. CD's would *hurt*. He'd need a blood trail. And anal ointment.
<Allen> Monacles are always good.
<EhtyarWRK> (13:10:37) <Allen> The thing is, you aren't good at coming up with Tiny ideas. <-- ROFL
<Allen> It's true!
<EhtyarWRK> omg
<EhtyarWRK> so much funnyness
<Allen> I can't count how many times he and I have brainstormed on initially simple ideas, only to have them explode to un-codable proportions.
<EhtyarWRK> three quotes worth easy
<EhtyarWRK> so alllen
<EhtyarWRK> how come i don't see you?
<EhtyarWRK> r u like joto and have an hour a day?
<Allen> I wish I had a good excuse.
<Allen> Really, I'm just awful in communities--offline and off.
<Allen> I tend to get excited, then somehow slip off into lurkerdom for no good reason.
<mouser> lets think up an idea for allen!!
<Allen> Silence ensues.
<EhtyarWRK> im eating
<EhtyarWRK> nomnomnom

JavaScript: Not always what you expect

<Krishean> i found out something about arrays not too long ago
<Krishean> if you pass an array as an argument it only passes a reference to the array
<Krishean> as a function argument
<Krishean> hold on i'll get a example
<Krishean> function change(a){a[0]=2;}function main(){var a=[1];change(a);alert(a[0]);}main();
<Krishean> run that code and figure out wtf its doing
<app> not now ...i am busy being lazy
<hollow87> yo
<Krishean> heya hollow
<hollow87> sup
<Krishean> function change(a){a[0]=a[0].split('').reverse().join('');}
<Krishean> var arr=new Array();
<Krishean> arr[0]='doof';
<Krishean> change(arr);
<Krishean> alert(arr[0]);
<Krishean> thats a little more fun
<Krishean> not much
<Krishean> trying to teach an old app new tricks
<Krishean> 'doof' -> [???] -> 'food'
<Krishean> function obama(a){a[0]=a[0].split('').reverse().join('');} // its change, but not as you may expect
<Gunrunner_Gray> lol
<Krishean> its life jim, but not as we know it
<Krishean> gray have you learned any js?
<Gunrunner_Gray> Nope, not yet
<Krishean> huh
<Krishean> i'd think by being around me long enough it would catch like a bad case of the flu
