ascii_lander: but to get back the unobtainium - aha, gynacaeum, sure
ascii_lander: signmeup.
ascii_lander: let's the dirigible too
mircea_popescu: that'd be one hell of a murder trial. "why did you kill your own children!!11" "they... weren't all that impressive"
ascii_lander: !s dumplings
assbot: 14 results for 'dumplings' :
assbot: Logged on 16-02-2014 22:04:18; asciilifeform: they pass an old man who says, 'don't drown this fellow. i'll feed him dumplings, he won't have to do any work but to dip them'
mircea_popescu: but alf, what if they happen to excel at something you just don't happen to recognize as a thing ?
ascii_lander: then i suck and hopefully they poison me 1st
mircea_popescu: and then later you figure out you murdered turing for being gay and are all regretful and gotta poke out your eyes ?
ascii_lander: for the sake of phyooture(tm)
ascii_lander: then clearly.
mircea_popescu: this should be a play, if we got any playwrights in the audience :D
ascii_lander: but at any rate, we can play the unobtainium game, great phun. yes, if had starship, would travel to proxima centauri, would xxxxx, yyyy.
BingoBoingo: ascii_lander: You are too valuable to been poisoned by cunt snot like that. Go for adoption and multi-continent ascii proliferation

ascii_lander: none of it seems the least bit applicable to my actual meatengineering constraints
mircea_popescu: i dunno dood. even ncos manage to get azn chicks pregnant.
ascii_lander: ncos are three 'ph.d.'s ahead of
trinque: to be fair, the east coast is pretty dystopian
mircea_popescu: you looked at pay grades ?
trinque: I dunno that I'd want to raise a kid there
ascii_lander: the only formula i'd sign up for is mircea_popescu's gynacaeum
BingoBoingo: Middle west isn't so bad other than Ohio and Kansas
mircea_popescu: ascii_lander maybe mine doesn't fit ?
mircea_popescu: guy walks into tailor's, "gimme a suit just like that guy's!"
ascii_lander: obviously every man - own emacs config!
ascii_lander: mircea_popescu would not use my emacs
ascii_lander: or vice-versa.
ascii_lander: not without some serious work under magnifying glass, at least.
ascii_lander does see emacs as most intimate item, more than eyeglasses
ascii_lander: there probably liveth somebody who could see pretty well with mine on
mircea_popescu: eyeglasses aren't that intimate yo.
ascii_lander: but my emacs? fuhgettaboutit
mircea_popescu: try anal hooks.
ascii_lander: precisely
ascii_lander: but yes, mircea_popescu can feel victorious, l0l, he satisfied the system of simultanous equations which point to a solution, far from physical space, where i'd want offsprint.
ascii_lander: *offspring

ascii_lander: solution to just about everything

ben_vulpes: it twitched, you didn't notice
BingoBoingo: It's slammed to the right, too late
ben_vulpes: more likely, suborned from get-go right?

BingoBoingo: Lizards are over, all hail our Avian overlords
ben_vulpes: aves uber alles
ascii_lander: 'He does, but as he's walking out the door, he yells his parting words loudly enough for half the food bank to hear, "YOU NOTHIN BUT A SEXY PIECE OF ASS. USELESS FOR ANYTHING ELSE. JUST A USELESS, SEXY PIECE OF ASS."'
ascii_lander: 'you nothing but a fast cpu, useless for anything else' he said to the pentium
ascii_lander: pentium: '....'
BingoBoingo: ascii_lander: How close is your ghetto to Baltimore?
ascii_lander: close enough
ascii_lander: i wander in there on occasion
ascii_lander: see the fishes.
BingoBoingo: Because Baltimore is having its own "Ferguson" moment that started in your absence
ascii_lander: (for free-world folks: that's where they keep the mega-aquarium)
BingoBoingo: Tread lightly, tan, and work on that Rioplantentanese.
ascii_lander hasn't been there in a good long while.
BingoBoingo: Your region jsut recently had a ferguson. Pick up a jerzy of a darker baseball player and wear it when transiting dark places. Embrace the foreigner card.
ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: i don't do much movement on foot there, at any rate
BingoBoingo: Still, if like Fergonson pedestrians will try to jump on motor carriages.
ascii_lander isn't to be found often in urban zones at all, in usa
BingoBoingo: You'd be surprised how far out of the Urban core a 'Ferguson' affects a certain subspecies of Homo Spaniens.
ascii_lander: eventually - all of it
ascii_lander: axe-time, sword-time.
BingoBoingo: ascii_lander: Baltimore incident was spinal injury in City holding cell. I'd recommend pricing empenada stands in #b-a
ascii_lander: i'm pricing garbage sorter stand
ascii_lander: (apparently this is a mega-business here, like in ussr)
ben_vulpes: lol ascii_lander they don't have stands
BingoBoingo: I am totally unaware.
ascii_lander: ben_vulpes: they have… turf
BingoBoingo: just... Ferguson style protestors when they can't hang the cops become a regional blight.

ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: mostly in the past
BingoBoingo: ascii_lander: Check your local news. It looks like your croppers are full Ferguson mode.
ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: they were in d.c. proper, during ferguson proper
ascii_lander: it was an interesting sight
ascii_lander: all the cops in the city standing around, in boredom, collecting overtime pay
ascii_lander: waiting for the wildfire that never came
BingoBoingo: ascii_lander: But now they have a local injury. Does your foot get red when your thigh has an abcese?
ascii_lander: incidentally d.c. proper is an educational museum of how orc riots are quite precisely centrally organized and decreed
BingoBoingo: Of course.
ascii_lander: various streets can be distinguished as 'permissible for orc burn' or not, to the naked eye
BingoBoingo: Unfortunately US-50 connects StL and DC
ascii_lander: ones not 'permissible' - are, to date, impregnable
ascii_lander: wake me up when they overrun the armory.
BingoBoingo: The StL varietal has a history of burning buildings to sell bricks to Atlanta and Florida subdivisions
ascii_lander: until then, it's 'yi yi zhi yi' (orc incursions organized by usg for own pleasure)
BingoBoingo: ANd of course there is US-50
BingoBoingo: <ascii_lander> until then, it's 'yi yi zhi yi' (orc incursions organized by usg for own pleasure) << I only worry because I've pointed local orcs to qntra posts
ascii_lander wonders if even in mircea_popescu
ascii_lander: 's formula,
ascii_lander: offspring are still a liability, because one might conceivably grow attached to them
ascii_lander: and then hostages
ascii_lander: consider why there was successful uprising at treblinka
ascii_lander: but scarcely anywhere else among the camps
ascii_lander: (because, elementarily, was full of unattached young men. who understood their proper natural function, that of kamikaze)
BingoBoingo: The brewing Chicom problem
BingoBoingo hopes ascii_lander lives long enough to see burned out ruins on the U Maryland campus nearly as glamorous as I saw at MIssou
BingoBoingo: *Mizzou
BingoBoingo: !up ascii_lander
ascii_lander: umd actually has some (lame) ruins
ascii_lander: from old fires
ascii_lander: properly speaking, most of it is a ruin as it is. simply, an inhabited one.
BingoBoingo: Mizzou only needed one big fire to get big ruins that are still the campus centerpiece

ascii_lander: who burned ba ?
ascii_lander: 'respekt the wurkerz' ?
mircea_popescu: ascii_lander attached, sure. doesn't prevent one making more. there's a line between attachment and mania.
ascii_lander: making more << again with atomic dirigible
ascii_lander: yes, with it - turn on 7Hz blaster, cities fall
ascii_lander: can make 'more' of anything
ascii_lander: without it - dig in mud, with other ants
mircea_popescu: <ascii_lander> 'respekt the wurkerz' ? << basically.
ascii_lander notes for folks who missed the 'fool's gasout' thread that: atomic dirigible isn't 'money'
ascii_lander: it's this thing that mircea_popescu flies around on
ascii_lander: mighty spiffy
mircea_popescu: pregnant virgin angel wings ?
ascii_lander: morphs into these when parking's tight
ascii_lander: at other times, normal zeppelin
ascii_lander: but atomic.
mircea_popescu: << myeah, if average donor had an idea what the beneficiaries are like, they'd donate warm lead.
assbot: Working in a food bank: I am a "useless piece of sexy ass" : fatpeoplestories ... ( )
ascii_lander: mircea_popescu: as it is, the warm lead (and jizzm) is donated by the beneficiaries, not vice-versa
mircea_popescu: backwards world.
ascii_lander: as with any thermodynamic atrocity, this one is maintained at tremendous expense.
mircea_popescu: "And on through eeeeeevery item. "I'm just gunna take two milks." "No, you aren't, unless that second milk is worth being thrown out of this food bank." And on. And on. Really, people end up with several bags of food anyway. Provided they take the "wimmin food" like fruit and peanut butter."
mircea_popescu: it's basically, the same children that needed to be beaten 50 years ago,
mircea_popescu: still begging for that one beating that'd have sorted them out.

ascii_lander: 'hunchback is straightened by his grave'
ascii_lander saw some truly kick-ass graves today
ascii_lander: spiffier than any flat i've ever lived in
ascii_lander: some probably more sq. m. than my current pad
ascii_lander: if you add up the levels
ascii_lander: (one appeared to go 4 stories down, and then to water)
mircea_popescu: "I'll post this in my next story, but a line said by a lady I very much admire that has stuck with me: "Those who are the least likeable are also the most in need of your help."
mircea_popescu: Sometimes I give an extra item to people I especially dislike, or go out of my way to compliment them. Many people, given a chance, will be friendly, even if they're often quick to anger/lash out otherwise."
mircea_popescu: imbeciles.
BingoBoingo worries ascii_lander is unprepared for changes in local climate
mircea_popescu: hunting the image. "were friendly". as if the appearance of friendliness is worth two shits.
ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: as prepared as the next schmuck
ascii_lander: mircea_popescu: wonder what said organism would answer if told that 'friendly' means 'open to spreading legs'
ascii_lander: all of a sudden - not so friendly
ascii_lander: easy to throw bone that costs nothing
ascii_lander: now throw own hip bone
BingoBoingo: ascii_lander: If you can find historical "sundown town" of similar inconvenience to yourself may be worth investment to move rent beams
ascii_lander: as in mircea_popescu's rhyme
mircea_popescu: ascii_lander as the tango dancer put it, "the man pushes so the woman knows to spread her legs and let him get in"
ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: funnily enough, i live in a sector of suburb full of south amer. in particular, argentinians...
ascii_lander: (as far as can tell)
ascii_lander: mainly artisans (mechanics, builders, plumbers, etc)
BingoBoingo: Oh, dunno if those would past muster last century
ascii_lander isn't in their wot, expects to be killed for supplies
ascii_lander will disappoint the cannibals. hasn't much of any use to anyone
BingoBoingo offers screening towns by when they got rid of breaking wheel in town square
ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: historical… inconvenience… << if could move, would move here. as it is, gluetrap.
ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: but to put things in perspective: you and i won't be moving to the b-a mircea_popescu, hanbot, mthreat et al live in
ascii_lander: but to the one the stray cats in the cemetary live in
mircea_popescu: wait, meta-bsas ? already ?
ascii_lander: they are, one might correctly presume, somewhat different places.
ascii_lander: in one, for instance, folks sleep ad libitum.
ascii_lander: now, the cat-b-a is still lightyears ahead of, e.g., wash., d.c.
ascii_lander: but important to keep a handle on the picture.
BingoBoingo: ascii_lander: I'll probably move to boring Expat B-A, after financial center of plain 3rd world country. Does not alleviate your need to get a Nyjer Morgan Washington Nationals Jersey for driving cross town.
ascii_lander: ben_vulpes this especially is written for you ^ compadre.
ascii_lander: incidentally, the cemetery cats are of the highest quality.

mircea_popescu: so, a guy and his best friend. ok, this happens. they're friends for the usual stupid reasons : lived nearby, and never contradicted each other.
mircea_popescu: only fucktarded teens think this way, but then again i guess that's what they are.
mircea_popescu: then one's family is a military man and his pliable wife. but no, not for shithead. "B&P (Booze&Pills) : Ahabs good for almost nothing, rehab bound mother. Major Asshole : Ahabs equally absent and physically abusive military father."
mircea_popescu: you know, if THAT woman had an equally uncharitable view of the speaker, he'd probably read "good for almost nothing but shitting diapers idiot"
mircea_popescu: now why exactly would someone decide that their home life is miserable ? oh, because that's how fucktarded adolescents think. okay.
mircea_popescu: viva la reddit, but at least learn teh fucking rhetorics, rather than deluge the interwebs in chicken scribblings.
mircea_popescu: but the kicker : the other family is a successful man and his ambitious wife. THIS IS ALSO NOT GOOD.
mircea_popescu: what the fuck would it take for these idiots to think their parents ~their superiors~ ?
mircea_popescu: cuz i suspect this is the deep reason asciilifeform doesn't want offspring. i tell you if the 19 yo snot that imagines he's better than me (like you know, every single fuctkared 19 yo snot "being famous in the bitcoin community" etc that we see here periodically bubble up his idiocy and then six months later fail abjectly and disappear) actually grew up in my house, i'd shoot it to death with blunt toothpicks.
mircea_popescu: which i suppose makes me the perfect storm of a horribru father (as per reddit) : the cross between "absent and physically abusive military father." and "coke snorting, random hooker banging, land development dealing father."
mircea_popescu: fucking hell, they hold whoring against the man that does it but not in favour of the man that doesn't do it ? ball beatings already.

mircea_popescu: trinque gotta be more than that.
ascii_launchpad: cache is useful, sure
trinque: I don't think that was a complete run
mircea_popescu: ascii_launchpad this is a particularly good one.
trinque: he's got a twitter somewhere that farts 'em out
trinque: couldn't find it
ascii_launchpad knows of 'varnish'
mircea_popescu: orly ? so hoiw do you install it ?
assbot: 404 Not Found ... ( )
ascii_launchpad has not the faintest idea how to install it today
mircea_popescu: the web is so fulla win.
ascii_launchpad left this behind in a galaxy far away, long ago.
trinque: gentoo's ebuild doesn't look too heinous
mircea_popescu: centos 6.6
ascii_launchpad: 'Feels like downloading Windows shareware in the 90s to me.' << l0l aha. pretty much everything but a very finely cultivated gentoo or bsd box feels like ^
mircea_popescu: people who finely cultivate women do not have the time to spend on cultivating boxes.
ascii_launchpad: there is to be a solution to this
ascii_launchpad: (or not. i didn't make this universe, i just werk here)
trinque: solution's paying someone for a goddamn OS imo
mircea_popescu: You can start that process by grabbing the repository:
trinque: this is what free looks like
ascii_launchpad: trinque: check your sofa cushions
mircea_popescu: srsly ? apt-key add - ?
ascii_launchpad: trinque: see a spare $maxint or two, perhaps
trinque: ascii_launchpad: lol, no $maxint in there boss
ascii_launchpad: it was worth a try.
assbot: How To Install nginx on CentOS 6 with yum | DigitalOcean ... ( )
mircea_popescu: get that final link in there.
assbot: nginx: Linux packages ... ( )
mircea_popescu: Alternatively, a repository configuration can be added manually without installing the nginx-release package. Create the file named /etc/yum.repos.d/nginx.repo with the following contents:
mircea_popescu: name=nginx repo
mircea_popescu: gpgcheck=0
mircea_popescu: motherfucker.
ascii_launchpad: l0l mircea_popescu is surprised ?
ascii_launchpad: this -is- sop.
mircea_popescu: im not surprised, i am displeased.
mircea_popescu: w/e, im just gonna buy more bw / burn more electricity.
mircea_popescu: i'm not goiing through this shit.
ascii_launchpad wonders how many of these 'beautiful surprises' it would take to make mircea_popescu a candidate for same nuthouse as ascii_launchpad
mircea_popescu: (btw, this is exactly how gentoo failed. ran out its time budget)
ascii_launchpad: mircea_popescu: actually gentoo failed (in the usual sense of the word) long ago when its head dev sold soul to microshit
ascii_launchpad: on account of, iirc, getting moietied
mircea_popescu: what can i tell you.
mircea_popescu: software itself runs great, packaging is the shit.
mircea_popescu: women in tech really dropped the fucking ball.
ascii_launchpad just walked by a 'women in tech' poster
mircea_popescu: there's about ten square miles of packaging needlework that needs doing, and the doers are all derping about consent or some stupid shit like that.
mircea_popescu: pronouns, whatever.

assbot: Poo Machine by Wim Delvoye | Amusing Planet ... ( )
ascii_launchpad: it is the whole definition of such a collapse, actually.
ascii_launchpad: no one can carry water in buckets within order of magnitude of how quickly the flames spread.
ascii_launchpad: for a while - it seemed possible, yes.
ascii_launchpad: 1980-2000 let's say arbitrarily.
ascii_launchpad: (from when it was mostly clear, to dijkstra et al that -this- would come, to, well, when the symptoms became impossible to ignore for anyone half awake)
pete_dushenski: "Delvoye stated that everything in modern life is pointless. The most useless object he could create was a machine that serves no purpose at all, besides the reduction of food to waste." << these intellectually poor artists and their purposes.
pete_dushenski: i'd love to know who funded this guy's eight years of 'research'
pete_dushenski: i want to guess that it was a government

mircea_popescu: ascii_launchpad> because it is not physically possible to breed and teach needleworkers fast enough to keep up with a complexity collapse. << it's not a complexity collapse. i know how to manage this problem, i've done it before.
mircea_popescu: if you got some needle work being done youy can use that fixed point to control "development" around it.
Pierre_Rochard: pete_dushenski: haha yes, but this non-biologist doesn’t see why not! seems like the ideal controlled experiment machine
mircea_popescu: but if you got zero because women are fucktarded (because "men" are fucktarded boys) every ordinary anything looks like a fucking pulsar colliding with a supernova.

liquidassets: MP can you elaborate on how you don't see bitcoin being retail anything? It seems your thoughts work more in eons, won't there will be an in between time where things might not be end game yet
mircea_popescu: bitcoin works for say trilema credits retail, whatcha talkin' aboot ?
liquidassets: when you see it...
liquidassets: I can't remember when or where you said it, but it seems like you're pretty down on bitcoin being used for retail purchases
liquidassets: ...the plug..
assbot: Bitcoin prices, Bitcoin inflexibility on Trilema - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( )
liquidassets: the more I get into retail the more I want to incentivize bitcoin payments
mircea_popescu: nothing wrong with that.
mircea_popescu: the idea was that bitcoin isn't going to change to accomodate the retail market, principally because the retail market is (necessarily) much too small.
mircea_popescu: othere than that... if it works for you use it.
liquidassets: "People try to, because of the misguided belief that Bitcoin value is somehow related to or deriving from its crossection in the retail market" <<ok I"m starting to grok
trinque: liquidassets: what kind of retail are you considering?
liquidassets: it's a hobby store
liquidassets: mostly drones and rc cars for now
liquidassets: but cardanos in the future
mircea_popescu: incidentally, kinda lulzy for me to read the "concerns" of the bitcoin derpistan cca q4 2014 / q1 2015 in trilema writings two years prior.
liquidassets: retail anything really, I'm want to help businesses succeed after the next economic adjustment happens
liquidassets: Ha! link?

mircea_popescu: not bad.
trinque: liquidassets: I'm sure super-fast-buy-a-starbux can be built atop bitcoin just fine
trinque: might not end up being bitcoin itself
trinque: it will probably involve payment companies and some kind of account you fund
mircea_popescu: considering the actual tx pressure is ~0 atm, blocks not even half full etc, he can prolly get away with just using btc for at least a year.
liquidassets: I'd rather bring in as much btc as possible before spending it
liquidassets: that would make more sense then trying to cram in into what we have already <<not sustainable

trinque: mircea_popescu: I've yet to hit upon a devops process I actually like. On gentoo at least it appears to be an emerge varnish; rc-update add varnish default; /etc/init.d/varnish start
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: i only actually use nginx.
mircea_popescu: i have nginx.
ben_vulpes: and still need varnish?!

ben_vulpes: it's the latest and greatest in php performance tekmology!
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes php has 0 to do with it. for one thing, it's compiled. for the other, it's apache that gets hammered, purely a html problem.
ben_vulpes: just trollin u boss
ben_vulpes: like i said, above my pay grade
mircea_popescu: i don't really understand the magic, but when running varnish hits ~= pages.
ben_vulpes: <pete_dushenski> "are self-funded and self-motivated" << the actual footnote you want here is the reference to the deficits that serenissima runs
