a111: Logged on 2019-03-02 23:34 mircea_popescu: diana_coman btw, can i get you to "update posts set post_content = REPLACE(post_content, '', '')" ? [04:05]
feedbot: << Bimbo.Club -- Philosophical Transactions. For the months of July, August and September, 1716. - Part III. [11:49]
feedbot: << Qntra -- World's Top Bridge Player Suspended Over Doping??? [12:36]
BingoBoingo: Meanwhile, found in the mines: [12:39]
mod6: thanks mircea_popescu! [12:56]
mircea_popescu: ty diana_coman ! [14:07]
BingoBoingo: In local developments the growshop across the street which made a big point of paying and having a booth at the expocannabis appears to either be shuttering or moving. Conference monkeying for the win! [14:14]
mircea_popescu: maybe it's moving to be closer to the conference grounds. [14:14]
mircea_popescu: for child porn completitude, [14:16]
mircea_popescu: (you will indulge me in observing that forcing 13yo girlies one's fixated on to [][read certain things] is not substantially different from forcing them to do certain things especially if the fixation has entirely nothing to do with the particular little girl in question, but stems from more general [14:20]
mircea_popescu: considerations.) [14:20]
asciilifeform: re balls, [14:28]
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: replied [14:30]
BingoBoingo: He's got balls attached. Their just dormant. [14:31]
mircea_popescu: #metoo lol [14:31]
asciilifeform: rly the old chinese system was moar honest, where they took their balls off right off the bat, when they signed up to serve the reich, and put in a jar, 'proof of work' [14:32]
mircea_popescu: quite, yes. [14:34]
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: replied^2. [14:34]
mircea_popescu: lotta things chinese did lot more honest. the black lotus retirement plan way the fuck more effectual, secure, reliable AND PLEASANT than not to mention the chinese didn't give it to children. [14:35]
asciilifeform: << oblig blacklotus [14:37]
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Replied again, but it isn't the game engines killing anything. It's that every "federation" and "governing body" that's captured competitive pursuits is femstate uterine scar tissue. [14:39]
BingoBoingo: Ever since Madame Kenesaw Mountain Landis took the business out of baseball, its been downhill everywhere. Olympic fappery is simply toxic. [14:41]
asciilifeform: for their part, the dope makers also drop the ball : it's perfectly possible to make a usable dope that does its thing and breaks down into unremarkables the assassination poisons people had the right idea in the 1920s [14:45]
mircea_popescu: this kipling piece's quite good! [14:46]
asciilifeform: ikr [14:46]
asciilifeform: 1 of his best, imho [14:47]
mircea_popescu: incidentally, now that they've made pot "legal", the chandoo-khanas where the niggers go when ? [15:18]
mircea_popescu: evidently best way out for most of extant dreamers, PLUS IT WOULD SUPPORT THE TAX REVENUE!!!1 [15:18]
mircea_popescu: wouldn't it be ironic if that's the future, chinese-sponsored usg-"law"-immune extrateritorial teahouses in every county. [15:19]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: today. ( but naturally not classic opium, given as it cannot be patented, but usg.strange, and 'prescription' ) [15:19]
mircea_popescu: not bad. [15:20]
mircea_popescu: evidently our colonial experiment failed. depopulation, and recolonization manifestly necessary. [15:20]
asciilifeform: ( iirc we had thread, re how ~100% of usg.psychopharma 100y consists of 'let's reimplement 2000 y.o. plant dopes in patentable form' ) [15:21]
mircea_popescu: add a methyl, take a methyl, it's all in good fun. [15:22]
asciilifeform: and BingoBoingo has a reportage re how double-digit % of usa proles are hooked on various synthetic opium [15:22]
* asciilifeform did depressing tour of duty in 'add a methyl, take a methyl' for the reich, but fortunately on the theoretical end, not the eating end [15:24]
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> incidentally, now that they've made pot "legal", the chandoo-khanas where the niggers go when ? << They've had theirs. The next step is something similar for the dreamers though the dreamers seem to be breaking towards approximating the same in their own squalor holes. [15:24]
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the 'dreamers' have been living in their ganja dens since '60s, what [15:25]
asciilifeform: srsly asciilifeform lives in a nowhere uni town, and there are no fewer than 4 shops on 1 street selling hooka, hoses, etc [15:26]
mircea_popescu: problem with pot is that it doesn't kill them nearly fast enough. [15:26]
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: The sixties didn't have contemporary ganja nor the contemporary mass of dreamers, though the baby boomer generation was pretty dreamer fucked [15:26]
asciilifeform: it's the evening's entertainment for these folx. plug in the hoses, fire up the coals, turn on tv for background [15:26]
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> problem with pot is that it doesn't kill them nearly fast enough. << True [15:26]
asciilifeform: the opium was banned specifically cuz kills the 'dreamer' too quickly. they wanted live konsoomer / mortgage monkey gotta live at least his 30y of mortgage etc [15:27]
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> it's the evening's entertainment for these folx. plug in the hoses, fire up the coals, turn on tv for background << The hookah/hose thing is a poor delivery device for pot. mircea_popescu's centerpiece that shoots deep into the lungs is the tool for pot. The hookah's more of a high margin impulse purchase trap that doesn't draw the shops aggro like most consumer US stuff is. [15:29]
mircea_popescu: well, some people like the eastern tobacco. [15:30]
BingoBoingo: Well, this is the US [15:30]
* mircea_popescu found a one inch cut of vanilla bean in his UAE-made "best shisha tobacco in the world". it tasted as fresh and great as one from here, even joked with the girls, "full circle for this guy" [15:30]
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: my (admittedly nonexpert) understanding is that hooka is used for what in asciilifeform's alcoholic orcistan is referred to as 'kvasing', i.e. slow intake over whole day/night [15:31]
asciilifeform: rather than 1shot brain blow [15:31]
mircea_popescu: very far cry from the "only I wish [15:31]
mircea_popescu: Tsin-ling wouldn’t put bran into the Black Smoke." [15:31]
BingoBoingo: Eastern tobacco involves ritual and some trivial amount of work. Most US hookah purchases I've seen end up on a shelf as another piece of kitsch after just a few uses. [15:31]
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: hooka worx best with ~servant~ who fills/empties, i suspect [15:32]
BingoBoingo: Another thing the US is short of [15:32]
mircea_popescu: topless, chimed, it's a fine luxury item. [15:32]
asciilifeform: it is lulzy, in this here shithole they banned 'smoke in restaurant'. but folx still want hooka. so effect was, the hooka dens no longer serve food, nao only smoke [15:33]
asciilifeform: you walk in, and smoke thick enuff to walk on [15:33]
asciilifeform: folx on cushions, brains liquifying, quite kiplingesque picture aside from the lappies/pnojes [15:34]
asciilifeform: ( Officially , in the hookas, only tobacco + various flavour crud. but possibly on west coast, also ganja ) [15:35]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: you won't believe what else UAE-made : (if the crate is to be believed) -- that xray film. [15:37]
mircea_popescu: i'll believe. more sense than qatar, for sure. [15:37]
asciilifeform: i still have difficulty swallowing that they can make anyffin moar complicated than camel saddle. [15:38]
asciilifeform: ( supposedly even scimitar for beheading, is suffering shortages, the last troo smiths died ) [15:38]
BingoBoingo: Well, ecuador is allegedly running out of the people who can make hats for mircea_popescu. This is a problem in every field. [15:39]
