mircea_popescu BingoBoingo you have to appreciate i don't do bezzle. that "couple mil" per year was about 20k actual deductibles and the rest fluff. [00:32]
mircea_popescu i wonder if this is how history will remember gawker << it's certainly how i'll remember it. "that wanna-be news-livejournal thing that got destroyed by hulk hogan" [00:33]
mircea_popescu or similar 'leak' with unambiguous physical consequences. << the "unambiguous" in there is a no true scotsman. you know for a fact that leaks to date have had physical consequences of the worst kind for the twerps in question, and you know they know, and you can observe them act in consequence of that knowledge. they digested the fact they are informationally defeated. [00:35]
BingoBoingo mircea_popescu: Sure, but you have to consider Denton only does Bezzel, Blow Jobs, and Loss leading social engineering. From what I understand he hit his peak wealth before Gawker got close to popular. Much like i hit peak fitness a decade ago befor I had internet connected terminal at "werk" [00:35]
mircea_popescu yeah well. sucks to be him, [00:36]
BingoBoingo Sure, but his gay is more accept nao than Turing's was then. Even though he also had to bankroll fat acceptance, Kardashians, and lets hate athletic success to make it happen. [00:38]
mircea_popescu So, LED bulbs... really excelling at exterior lighting. << so they are. also they bother the fauna, so less racoons [00:38]
BingoBoingo The stray cats adore them [00:38]
decimation mircea_popescu: 'has physical consequences' seems like a solid criteria, not 'no true scotsman' [00:39]
mircea_popescu the kardasshian part in there is understandable. [00:39]
mircea_popescu decimation everything's ambiguous if you wish it to be [00:39]
BingoBoingo Sure, the Kim subtype has an ass. [00:39]
BingoBoingo The other's are too hammy [00:39]
decimation in the case in question though, I think it does do damage to usg where it hurts [00:40]
mircea_popescu the others didn't have the gumption tro spend a coupla years as paris hilton's foot slaves [00:40]
mircea_popescu this makes a difference. [00:40]
BingoBoingo No they didn't [00:40]
mircea_popescu decimation look at it this way : [00:40]
mircea_popescu !s we know where you live [00:40]
assbot 7 results for 'we know where you live' : [00:40]
mircea_popescu and for that matter [00:40]
mircea_popescu !s from:mircea you get killed [00:40]
assbot 11 results for 'from:mircea you get killed' : [00:40]
mircea_popescu generally, early discussion of later to be publicly known stuff is considered unambiguous enough. [00:41]
scoopbot_revived BitPay Continues To Falter [00:41]
decimation not to minimize your reign of terror, but I think usg servants fear chinese agents even more [00:41]
mircea_popescu but obviously unambiguity standards vary. [00:41]
mircea_popescu why would they be able to distinguish ? [00:41]
BingoBoingo Kim has an ass that can only be built from Armenia, Squats, and slavish dedication. Kim's sisters... Have bodies built by lazy and spandex tressing. [00:42]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: let's rephrase. ever heard of a fella named sergey motorin? adolf tolkachev ? [00:43]
cazalla fwiw i don't even think she's that attractive (bisfh obviously) [00:43]
asciilifeform su folks who turned coat and worked for usg. outed, and shot [00:43]
mircea_popescu and who the fuck apologizes for women that look good in bikinis [00:43]
asciilifeform that's 'physical consequence' [00:43]

mircea_popescu cazalla it's no alternative sort of deal. the "us in south china sea" story is coming to an end this decade. [05:28]
mats usg is notoriously stubborn so please share intel with the class [05:33]
mircea_popescu no usable jet, not like carriers would be usable even if they had a jet, no money to back it all up with anyway even if they had a miracle cure for rocketry, and no brains to work the entire thing even if money were somehow to be found, as it's always found when there's brains involved. [05:34]

* assbot gives voice to wyrdmantis [05:40]
mircea_popescu were the philippines in the beijing accord btw ? [05:41]
mats im not sure what you're specifically referring to [05:43]
mircea_popescu Noynoy Aquino said that the Philippines is still considering to join AIIB. "We have not indicated that we are ready to join also. We are actually at the stage of studying the proposal to join this particular new entity." [05:43]
mircea_popescu that. [05:43]
mircea_popescu whore be milking the gringo for all he's got. [05:43]
mats oh, AIIB [05:44]
mircea_popescu japan was also considering it but then... somehow they changed their mind. [05:44]
cazalla well if it all goes to shit.. might finally find out what the yanks have been doing at pine gap all these years [05:45]
mircea_popescu eh, you might discover that chinese honeymoon much more pleasant than usg dregs. [05:45]
mircea_popescu it'll suck when your kids come of age, not next decade. [05:46]
* joshbuddy has quit (Quit: joshbuddy) [05:46]
mats i am pretty curious to see what happens to china over the next century [05:46]
mats the one child policy has serious cultural ramifications [05:47]
mats chinese females are predictably holding out longer and raising their standards, but thats still a lot of extinct lines [05:48]
mircea_popescu you got women don't ya ? [05:48]
cazalla alotta chinese women with aussie men these days [05:48]
mats this predicament is why i have no sympathy for all the SJW whiners in USA [05:49]
mats folks have no sense of scale [05:49]
mats imagine being a chinese male with no prospects [05:49]
mats (you can't) [05:49]
mircea_popescu back in 1992 all ukrainian girls were dancing in leipzig. [05:49]
mircea_popescu give it a little, all ohio girls be dancin' in shanghai [05:49]
cazalla yellow man, white pussy, big $$$ [05:50]
mircea_popescu best swindle ever. [05:50]
mircea_popescu recently the airlines managed to lose more money than was made in the history of flight. [05:50]
mircea_popescu meanwhile prostitution... i suspect whores are going to make more money this century than total up to date. [05:50]
mats how did they manage to do that after making 3x usu profits because cost of fuel going down? [05:51]
mircea_popescu this was 2000-2010 [05:51]
mats my understanding is that operating an airline has always been a losing proposition [05:52]
mircea_popescu ayway, whoredom's gonna be great business. the chinese bezzle looks like it's going to be this, a lot of small yellow beta males swarmin' around. except they won't try to go to college and get a mortgage to please the old folks. [05:52]
mircea_popescu they'll just carry dept to stick coins in the stereoscopic machine with the girl taking her pants off [05:53]
cazalla airline industry is aus is pretty bad, so bad that QANTAS has a debt guarantee from the government [05:53]
mats IIRC US-based airlines have consistently reported 1% or 0 profit since being privatized [05:53]
mats hedging against cost of fuel is a bitch [05:53]
mircea_popescu even train traverl was aspirational at some point [05:53]
mircea_popescu and railroads raked it in [05:53]
mircea_popescu and re the "imagine being a drone"... why do you think it's so impossible to imagine ? [05:55]
mircea_popescu in any case : the best thing that could happen is for a whole lot of lines to go extinct. like... most of them, really. [05:56]
mats its a dramatically different thing to be a white WalMart greeter [06:04]
mircea_popescu sure [06:04]
mats than it is to be a manual laborer for Wu Gang's Mining Emporium [06:05]
* menahem has quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds) [06:05]

* NewLiberty ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [06:06]
mats the cultural context is entirely different, and whether its true or not, [06:07]
mats there's a lot more implicit potential social mobility involved in being a white dude in us [06:07]
mircea_popescu social mobility is a nice way to say it. the other way to say it is "swimming in a shitswamp" [06:08]
mircea_popescu as empirically observed, there's not any cause or any way to build anything in a swamp. [06:08]
mircea_popescu and everything stinks [06:08]
mats whereas, if you're a chinese dude, [06:08]
mats literally 1 in 4 dudes you meet will never procreate [06:08]
mats sucks to suck [06:08]
mircea_popescu i had no idea having kids is the summum bonum [06:09]
mircea_popescu when did that happen ? [06:09]
* assbot gives voice to chetty [06:10]
chetty only in Amerika can you just decide to be black even if you skin is white [06:10]
cazalla mats, are you asian? [06:11]
mats yes [06:11]
cazalla plenty of white people aren't procreating either, different reasons though (career women) [06:12]
cazalla there's what.. a billion or more chinese? i think they're good numbers wise [06:13]
mircea_popescu numbers really are worthless. [06:13]
mircea_popescu used to be, for most of human history, numbers mattered. [06:14]
mircea_popescu they don't, now. [06:14]
cazalla why's that? [06:14]
chetty it still takes 2 to tango [06:14]
mircea_popescu only thing another hundred twerps does for you is more inane demands. [06:14]
cazalla so we're at the point we're it's sorta like bezzle but for people? [06:14]
mircea_popescu yep. [06:15]
mircea_popescu originally, people pinned women down and stuck it in them because the kids cost nothing, either fed themselves off offal or died, and then could be used, for purposes. [06:15]
mircea_popescu then, steam power replaced muscle power, and people started playing talent lottery. [06:15]
cazalla well i must say, it comes to a shock that i have been printing bezzle [06:15]
cazalla as a shock even [06:15]
mircea_popescu one million schmucks had to kill themselves raising kids in new jersey so there could be a miss new jersey on television [06:16]
mircea_popescu nobody gives a shit about rockstars and genius scientists now. [06:16]
mircea_popescu consequently... really, no further point. if tomorrow you wake up and there's not ten billion people but ten thousand, there won't be a notable difference. [06:16]
mircea_popescu minus, of course, your not being there to notice. [06:16]
cazalla could be if the remaining 9,999 are all women :P [06:17]
mircea_popescu prolly about 6k of em [06:17]
mats i don't care about reproduction, but there is the issue of those others [06:18]
chetty would be noticeable when stuff starts breaking down [06:18]
cazalla mats, maybe they don't care either? [06:18]
mats i suppose the tentative plan is to recolonize oceania and us [06:19]
mats pretty hard to ignore biological imperatives, cazalla [06:19]
mats even when you enjoy the taste of cock [06:19]
cazalla well if/when america topples over, down under is shit out of luck, chinese will come flooding out of the water and on to the land [06:19]
cazalla and i can't imagine the chinese men will have much mercy for the aussie men banging their chinese-australian women [06:20]
cazalla mats, i doubt they do ignore them which is why pornotubes are the top sites [06:21]
mircea_popescu who knows, maybe they pay to watch [06:21]
cazalla pay in what? dollars? doubtful, iron ore? chinese own it all already [06:22]
mircea_popescu uniques lol [06:25]
cazalla meh chinese farmed em already [06:29]
mats the problem i'm faced with now is where to flee [06:33]
mircea_popescu actually there's a decent sf story in there, title it something like "986" [06:33]
mircea_popescu the premise being that in that future of barely a thousand people, you don't really need names, and moreover, you can trivially ennumerate the list of everyone [06:33]
mircea_popescu mats what's wrong with china ? [06:34]
mats clean air, water, and food [06:34]
mircea_popescu ah [06:34]
mircea_popescu large country, they cvouldn't have fuxcked up all of it [06:34]

cazalla but tbh, they've prob been doing it for much longer than they admit anyway [06:48]
cazalla data retention supposedly lasts 2 years but more likely forevar or until their hdds are full [06:49]
copypaste well in the US at least [06:50]
copypaste they do it [06:50]
copypaste oh sure they do it. but they can't admit to it [06:50]
copypaste so they have to at least attempt parallel construction [06:50]
cazalla i half expect to see your face on tv and in newspapers here in the next few days [06:51]
copypaste i suppose i'll never be headed to australia then [06:52]

copypaste i think they are attempting not to mention me and 8ch [06:52]
copypaste because they dont; want people to find it so easily. [06:52]
cazalla i don't see the big deal tbh, australian school girls have always been huge moles [06:53]
mats ;;ud mole [06:54]
cazalla agriculture class provided my first clasp of the titty [06:54]
gribble | mole. a really sexy animal that lives mainly underground. dad: ahh no, look at that lump in the lawn, we must have moles me: ooooo great! *runs out to molest ... [06:54]

mircea_popescu so what's an aussie mole ? [06:55]

cazalla but sheilas can be molls or prudes [06:57]
cazalla not sure.. i read one about black dicks and some other weird shit, was a bit too far out there for me (sorta reminds me of the kid at school who never stfu about sex and knew far more than he should in all honesty) [06:58]

mircea_popescu ahhh, another 2. at this rate i'll be rich! [12:11]
mircea_popescu oh yeah, and while at it alf, compute the cost of raising ten children off three different women, also sight unseen. [12:11]
funkenstein_ pure diamond ok ascii? [12:11]
asciilifeform jurov: i can do without hard vacuum (hard enough to get it here) [12:12]
asciilifeform but not without the entire orchestra [12:12]
mircea_popescu because if we're doing the entire "here's some random shit i came up with, do planning for it", might as well. [12:12]
mircea_popescu you know, naggum had a very unflattering piece re this approach, alf. [12:12]
asciilifeform the given example was anything but random. [12:12]

asciilifeform why not i move to beijing straight to the jail? [12:13]
mircea_popescu "opaque 10skm bubble" is not random ? [12:13]
asciilifeform answer: i can sit in the american jail now! [12:13]
asciilifeform closer to home [12:13]
mircea_popescu forget that part. [12:13]
mircea_popescu you're not liable to get anywhere by simply following your own mental narrative in circles. [12:13]
mircea_popescu did you or did you not say 10 sqkm opaque bubble, and is it or is it not 15yo cocklet-ism [12:13]
jurov mircea_popescu: it comes out that if you ever decide to relocate alf, will need to manage it and provide usg-level amenities [12:13]
asciilifeform cartoon example, ferphuxxsake [12:14]
mircea_popescu no. [12:14]
mats lol [12:14]
mircea_popescu that's the exact problem in discussion here. you're freely mixing cartoons and footage, for a very lsd-looking example. [12:14]
mircea_popescu stick to one or the other. [12:14]
asciilifeform entire discussion isn't firmly grounded in reality. no one asked for me in shenzhen, or will. [12:15]
mircea_popescu yes, the best dreams start with a twisted version of reality. [12:15]
mircea_popescu the worst dreams never end. [12:15]
kakobrekla jurov> alf now requires hard vacuum to live? < lmao [12:15]
asciilifeform live/exist [12:15]
mircea_popescu i wonder if aiming to be a spherical chicken makes one transfat ? [12:16]
asciilifeform i have lived in cities. in crappy soviet dwellings, with little room to move, even. in order to do this again voluntarily i would want something very valuable in return. such as not having to work for a living ever. [12:18]
asciilifeform would have to stick to mathematics, probably. (can one even get unfiltered internet in shenzhen ?) [12:18]
mircea_popescu the notion that future you asks past you anything at all is very 16yo-ish female in kabul sort of thought. it's not how it works. [12:19]
mircea_popescu "oh in order to put up with what my mother puts up with i will want blabla" [12:19]
asciilifeform no one asked me, aha. [12:19]
asciilifeform which is why the whole thing is an acid trip [12:19]
mircea_popescu nobody ever gave a shit. least of all the girly in discussion once she's 17.5 [12:19]
asciilifeform the only thing i might be asked is if i'd like to be shot in the head or chest [12:19]
mircea_popescu dubious [12:19]
asciilifeform and that's only if interlocutor is feeling charitable. [12:19]
mircea_popescu i remember some guy paying a lot of money for that sort of thing [12:19]
mircea_popescu and still not getting it [12:19]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: aha! [12:19]
asciilifeform jack ketch took tips, famously! [12:20]
asciilifeform remember him [12:20]
funkenstein_ vpn is slow over there but works as you'd expect [12:20]
asciilifeform as pictured in the well-loved 'baroque cycle' by n. stephenson [12:20]
asciilifeform little boys would earn pennies by pulling on legs of hanging men at tyburn [12:20]
asciilifeform (they paid on the gallows in advance) [12:20]
asciilifeform idk if i'll pay. what'll i do if the kid refuses to pull? negrate him as i swing ? [12:21]
asciilifeform at any rate, if the thread were about things that are ~likely to~ happen to me, vs 'what i'd like', it'd be much shorter and even more boring. [12:22]
asciilifeform as it is, i fully expect to envy the '16yo-ish female in kabul [12:23]

assbot Logged on 17-06-2015 13:17:59; asciilifeform: you can pick up a textbook and write a dram controller for fpga from first principles - and it won't work. because, for starters, only a small number of output cells in the chip can function on both rising and falling edge of clock cycle (what 'ddr' means) and only xilinx's closed turd knows where they are in the routing fabric; [12:54]
mircea_popescu i am not for a moment arguing against the closed turdness approach ddram is wrapped in [12:55]

mircea_popescu yes, that so far is right. the thing it fails to account for is that roads create traffic, not the other way around. it's not need that creates advance, as the idiots writing schoolbooks claim. the other way around. [13:04]
mircea_popescu and consequently this whole story is moot other than for the similarity with the past. it took the magical box allowing you to talk to people over the ethers a few decades to arrive starting in the 70s, or a few millenia to arrive starting pre caesar. in the interval, cellphones were mostly magic rings. [13:05]
mircea_popescu now we understand that retrospectively, the chord in phones is not a requirement but an anachronism, and we expect everything be available as wired or wireless at our option. but the wired/wireless dichotomy was not even meaningful to bell, or marconi. [13:05]

funkenstein_ which requires, logging into server or something? [14:57]
ascii_field and if you want, e.g., a 100BaseT nic, or sdram controller, it has to be laid out mainly by hand using floor plan of the particular chip and explicit coordinates. which vendor can do, and you (user) cannot. [14:57]

ascii_field (and only a paid-up, to the tune of 100K+ usd, or well-cracked, xilinx toolchain, will even talk to the $200-300 ones) [15:01]

trinque ascii_field: they just wanna give the web a nice hug [22:46]
ascii_field just when we thought 'flash' had finally died [22:46]
trinque and google's clearly taking a page from old microshit 90s tactics [22:46]
