(asciilifeform) asciilifeform: 'ricers'.
(trilema) BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: There seems to be a racket where a loading with get a weird ricer name like .50 BEOWOLF or .300 BLACKOUT get some USG test firings and go on to market the round as things normally get marketed to jugalos,etc based on edgy/cool name
(trilema) asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: probably one could write entire b00k on 'ricer hardware'. i.e. where enthusiast could (and often does) fill an entire lifetime of nights an' weekends with fiddling, and spend any amt of money, but will still end up with basically same thing, if 'heavy with shit stuck to the side'.

(trilema) asciilifeform: see also this old thrd. consider the most popular piece, the m16 & variants. popular specifically because comes apart into two dozen parts, for each of which there are 'ricer' aftermarket 'shit bolted to side!111' replacements, for fiddlers to fiddle with.

(trilema) mircea_popescu: so i re-watched la grande belezza for like the twelfth time. it's possibly the greatest film ever made. or maybe i'm just slow -- for instance, only now did it finally occur to me that the giulio moneta, "uno dei dieci latitanti piu ricercati del mondo" was in fact a straight reference to m m denaro.

(trilema) trinque: ahaha, this is excellent due to the gentoo-as-ricer-car mockery
(trilema) phf: new ricer fad, how loud your system is, neighbors call cops, "bro, i'm compling gentoo with -O10"
(trilema) phf: funkenstein_: when gentoo came out it had a reputation of being a "ricer" os, like how people put spoilers on cheap cars to make them "racing cars". all you need to know is how to tweak a few flags, and then spend a night watching a compilation log. of course these days ~even that~ is an arcane skill
(trilema) ThickAsThieves: and command market pricer
