coderwill: it's amazing how private companies have effectively firewalled freedom of thought/speech through broadcast frequencies
assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!
asciilifeform: same choice as everyone else.
asciilifeform: coderwill: ~100 yrs ago.
decimation: coderwill: it's so effective nobody even thinks in those terms
phf: the question at the end of the day is, what to transmit. pirate in question had a pretty fixed, pkd-ish narrative. how many people would tune in and go "huh, that's so fucking cool, a crazy anarchis broadcast." just to tune out few minutes later
decimation: when was the last time you heard someone advocate the local tv station justify their monopoly on the supposedly public spectrum?
decimation: or verizon?
BingoBoingo: If pirate radio why not AM?
asciilifeform: how many people even own an am tuner
decimation: am has more unused frequency space
decimation: but it takes even more power to be heard
BingoBoingo: At least one in car
decimation: and has lots of noise
decimation: plus the same problem with the fcc van
BingoBoingo: The one in car normally tuned to AM rather than FM

assbot: Logged on 11-06-2014 01:10:57; asciilifeform: a tale was once told to me by one fellow 'in the know': russia sold gps jammers (serious ones, not the chinese pocket gizmos off ebay) to iraq, shortly prior to '03 american invasion. but iraq didn't pay the full invoice. so, the vendor neglected to remind the buyer that they must be arranged in a ring pattern and operated in unison
decimation: yeah it takes a special idiot to use strong gps jammer in a usg free-fire zone
asciilifeform: 'Berrett also used his company credit card to spend $131.08 with Interactive Life Forms, parent company of sex-toy maker Fleshlight, and listed the purchase as exam test prep questions, the indictment says. Berrett paid $226.50 for a wine shipment from the Gold Medal Wine Club, listing the purchase as a “Bribe for the UNIX guys.”'
asciilifeform: ^ mega-l0l
asciilifeform: decimation: clever man uses sixteen of'em in a circle around the american general, let him shoot himself with own rocket
decimation: yeah, would first have to surround said general
asciilifeform: only with radio
asciilifeform: or let the pencilnecks try to explain to him why the rocket ought not be fired
asciilifeform: (who wouldn't pay to watch this)
decimation: perhaps this will be tried one day
asciilifeform: thing is, americans helpfully 'surround' themselves whenever they land in orcland
decimation: the iraqs seemed incapable of organizing the day's post
asciilifeform: just by virtue of building their 'green zone' in the middle of the jungle/desert
decimation: asciilifeform: yeah a particularly lulzy strategy
decimation: see yarvin's rants about 'pc coin'
asciilifeform: 'In 2006, then-Savvis Inc. Chief Executive Robert McCormick earned the nickname “lap dunce” from the New York Daily News after being accused of charging a $241,000 topless-club bill to his corporate credit card.' << i seriously dun get it
asciilifeform: wtf is the appeal of this
asciilifeform: pay serious coin, as if for whores, but no sex
asciilifeform: or is 'stripper' merely another word for whore in modern parlance ?
asciilifeform mystified
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> or is 'stripper' merely another word for whore in modern parlance ? << It often is.
asciilifeform: and what kind of whoring costs six figures ?
asciilifeform: seems like somebody is 'buying retail'
trinque: can't be the whole picture
decimation: it would have been cheaper to hire the strippers as secretaries
asciilifeform: one could run a very serviceable harem for 250k
BingoBoingo: Likely issue is with $maxint money it becomes easy to forget what reasonable prices are, end up with human golden toilet
coderwill: why, in the lottery of life is one born to be able to spend $241K at a club, and another, by solely being born in a different lat/long only perhaps earning $241 after working for 6-9 months
asciilifeform: and e.coli bacterium earns even less
asciilifeform: sad, no
decimation: because zipf's law
phf: i've seen a some american univ arabs burn 20-30k a night at k street clubs on bottle service, and that's dc. i can imagine you can do some serious damage in new york clubs
asciilifeform: 'some are born to sweet delight, some are born to endless night' (tm) (r) (blake)
phf: a bottle of stoly will cost you $200 just to get a table, and then $500 for dom perignon and things like that. 2007 or so it was chick to order top shelf, open them, and then not drink them, i.e. have a bunch of bottles barely touched, just because you could

asciilifeform: phf: the ultimate pleasure is perhaps to pay a servant to pour the bottle directly into a (field-portable, in the back of limo) golden pissoire.
asciilifeform: this is the idiot 'normie''s idea of 'rich'. not taleb's library, no.
asciilifeform: we all laughed at rpietilla, but his antics were based on what actual $maxintillionaries do.
decimation: asciilifeform: I was reading about volkswagon and there's an amusing connection there
phf: asciilifeform: these were mostly sons of minor arab families, sent to american university, because "america" in name to get western education. couple of them had kids of same age, parents at home "full expenses paid", kids education paid, but otherwise slave to prince in question
decimation: hilter campaigned on the idea that car makers were intentionally ignoring the poor masses with their products
asciilifeform: ditto ford
asciilifeform: (who spent virtually whole life battling the patent cartels, in court and otherwise)
phf: but i've personally not seen a single instance of "taleb's library" in anywhere around capitol hill
asciilifeform: phf: what would saudi prince do with library? wipe arse?
asciilifeform: stoke furnace for bath, as the halif did with library of alexandria?
phf: asciilifeform: hey, i grew up in moscow, what do you expect? *i* expect saudi prince to drink fine wine and have learned debates supported by ibn-sina quotess and such :>

asciilifeform: the prophet forbade wine!
asciilifeform: (but not hashish)
trinque: that's just good taste if you're going to pick between.
decimation: the original name of volkswagen (people's-wagen) was "strength through joy"-wagen
phf: drink wine. this is life eternal. this is all that youth will give you. it is the season for wine, roses and drunken friends.
decimation: anyone who lives within walking distance of capitol hill is spending their waking hours attempting to maintain their position

decimation: " Albert Speer, said in his final speech at the Nuremberg trials:
decimation: “ Hitler's dictatorship differed in one fundamental point from all its predecessors in history. His was the first dictatorship [...] which made the complete use of all technical means for domination of its own country. Through technical devices like the radio and loudspeaker, 80 million people were deprived of independent thought. It was thereby possible to subject them to the will of one man."
decimation: if only hitler had made iphones with nasdp app!
asciilifeform: 'j00z around me'

assbot: Logged on 25-02-2015 16:31:47; asciilifeform: this is, by some indications, a non-renewable resource that's getting burned up rather quickly
asciilifeform: it is also important to note that it is a ~heat engine~
asciilifeform: i.e. requires both 'hot' and 'cold' parts
asciilifeform: 'hot', in this case, being the world of the coolie, and 'cold' being the world he aspires to enter (or at least send his children to, oxbridge and harvaprinceyaleton)
asciilifeform: if the fluids equilibrate, engine - stops.
decimation: yeah in the case of france it was 'derpy peasants' and 'austro-hungarian wealth'

mircea_popescu: that last one is especially indicative, she's made a career such as it is out of depicting herselv, which is to say, aging stupid woman with delusions of "intellectual", a sort of julia a moore of the current generation. except that in 1930 the opriginal was a laughingstock, and today every other female is basically wiig in a slightly varied color scheme.
mircea_popescu: in any case, that's denton's unforgivable crime : that he pointed out to the anal children that their self-delusions are not only impossible, and not only ridiculous. they're actually NOT FOOLING ANYONE. such an ego wound is intolerable, and you can fully expect "the entire blabla" to walk out in a fury. because they were only "working" for gawker to protect this particular egotastic trip, nothing ewlse. which is why t
mircea_popescu: hey can go on pretending like they're making a salary when they're not actually being paid.
mircea_popescu: ego trips being of course an economic surplus phenomenon, and the us being pretty much wrung out of any sort of surplus whatsoever, expect a lot of such arguments to come.
mircea_popescu: (ps - it's not incidental all the examples are women. this is very strictly a female mental issue)

mircea_popescu: and it also explains the various hangers ons stuffing the channel here, got their sig registered and trying to scrape as much support and connectivity without doing any sort of actual work.

shinohai: I have webspace that isn't being used at all, other than my contact info page.

But he says even a refurbished motor looks cheap compared with the $500 000 cost of replacing the elevator, not to mention the months of involuntary stair climbing during the upgrade.
nubbins`: “Usually people just go for the motor,” says Bleyle.
nubbins`: i like this guy

nubbins`: fairly unlikely at this point tho.

asciilifeform: because there are virtually no other coffee shops, as such, where i live
nubbins`: as someone who knows far too much about the science of coffee, starbucks is actual shit
asciilifeform: it tastes like shit
asciilifeform: because they mandatorily overcook
nubbins`: that's because they roast all their fucking beans too dark.
nubbins`: |0|
nubbins`: starbucks roasts all beans to "second crack", which is the entry point to "dark roasts"
nubbins`: they claim this is so they're not selling you pesky water-containing beans but fully-dried coffee goodness
asciilifeform always suspected that 'starbucks' is dominant for reasons which have nothing whatsoever to do with food, or with consumers choosing x over y
nubbins`: but really it's so they can swap out bean X for bean Y in Holiday Blend and nobody notices.
nubbins`: starbucks is dominant because people want the experience of buying coffee more than they want coffee.
asciilifeform: i don't grasp this, and won't, regardless of how well mircea_popescu explains it. why the fuck would anyone want ritual over the real thing ?

nubbins` shrugs :D
nubbins`: phun phact, beans are shipped green from source and roasted at destination
asciilifeform: aha
phf: nubbins`: oh, that was re asciilifeform's comments. there's plenty of good coffee in philadelphia
asciilifeform thought this was well-known
nubbins`: asciilifeform actually not!
ben_vulpes: true for good chocolate as well.
ben_vulpes: my buddy goes through a TEU of raw cacao beans every year or so.
nubbins`: :o
shinohai: Hey there is always Kopi Luwak
asciilifeform: point being, the only coffee i or anyone i know can readily access in <10 min., is office pot or shitbux
nubbins`: shinohai Kopi Luwak is 100% for rubes
asciilifeform: because that's what's in every street corner.
ben_vulpes: you know me, alf!
shinohai: indeed
nubbins`: 0/10, would not buy
asciilifeform: know in meatspace
ben_vulpes: i have 2 top-notch joints within 5 minutes stroll.
ben_vulpes: you and your usaschwitz.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes lives in some very other country
asciilifeform: which i've never been to
nubbins`: kopi luwak = let's take some weasels, cage them, force feed them shit-quality coffee
asciilifeform: and could no more move to than france or argentina
nubbins`: pick the intestinal worms out of the diarrhoea
nubbins`: and sell the beans for $150/lb
asciilifeform: nubbins`: when i learned about this coffee, as a boy, i immediately wondered why they use this animal and no other
ben_vulpes: eh, optimize performance for elemental
nubbins`: the animal naturally likes coffee cherries
asciilifeform: why not feed it to horses, cows
nubbins`: picks the choicest ones
ben_vulpes: pull in 120k, live on 80k.
asciilifeform: pigs
asciilifeform: they'll eat whatever
shinohai: I always feel like reddit started that trend or something
nubbins`: nowadays, the animals are force-fed so you might as well feed the beans to a cow.
nubbins`: i guess the intestinal juices / fermenting impart a flavour
BingoBoingo: <nubbins`> nowadays, the animals are force-fed so you might as well feed the beans to a cow. << I have the feeling a ruminant's multiple stomachs could defeat even a bean.
nubbins`: but i've never seen a serious coffee cupper give kopi luwak more than a 7/10
asciilifeform: i bet pigs would work just as well
asciilifeform: esp. if bred for the task
nubbins`: jamaican blue mountain, same shit
nubbins`: people buying a name
nubbins`: too stupid to realize that coffee is produce
nubbins`: and just because a farm had a great crop one year
nubbins`: doesn't mean all coffee from that region is great
nubbins`: or even that next year's batch will be fit to drink
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> i bet pigs would work just as well << May need an obligate carnivore for musk from the anal glands. Perhaps physical Doge may have a use.

nubbins`: (was at friend's house one hung-over morning. his wife places chocolate chip pancakes on table in front of him. he starts chewing, massive crunching sounds. i raise eyebrow; "coffee beans", he says)
BingoBoingo: "Roundup Ready" can probably be introduced into Doge via certain primate CYP450A1 alleles
asciilifeform: let's package'n'sell ~his~ turds?

nubbins`: ^
ben_vulpes: which, trivial.
nubbins`: i used to buy beans from sweetmarias.com
nubbins`: top quality
ben_vulpes: beans over the internet?
ben_vulpes: o.O
asciilifeform: see, i want something much more realistic - drink which is not ~deliberately~ shit-flavoured
nubbins`: green ones.
nubbins`: roast 'em at home.
ben_vulpes: ah.
ben_vulpes: aha.

nubbins`: Yirga Cheffe is hands-down my favourite coffee origin
phf: asciilifeform: it was a reasonable guess :)
phf: nubbins`: i always thought blends are like multigrain breads, a way to have a brand separate from the product, so you can easily substitute your sources
asciilifeform: aha, mcdonaldization
nubbins`: ah, yep.
nubbins`: precisely so
nubbins`: this is done different ways in different places.
nubbins`: kenya, for example: all coffee is sold through government auction, where the beans are sorted not by quality, original, processing method, etc but by SIZE.
nubbins`: colombia: all coffee sold through government ("juan valdez"), always blended to produce well-rounded, nice, but uninteresting cups
nubbins`: compare with most of central america, ethiopia, and others, where you can go to an actual farm and say "i want THESE beans" and receive said beans
nubbins`: (sweet maria's often makes deals direct with farmers, bypassing "fair trade" and the requisite fee structure while also giving farmers more of the money for themselves)
nubbins`: phun phact, you have to pay TransFair $0.10 for each coffee bag you print the "fair trade" logo on
asciilifeform would like to be able to drink a ~decent~ cup of coffee without having to personally import, roast, and grind the beans
asciilifeform: y'know, like everybody in, e.g., buenos aires, can
nubbins`: heh
nubbins`: and nobody in bogota can ;)
asciilifeform: i get it, it is possible to 'gentooize' just about anything
phf: oh i was wondering why i never see kenyan beans from roasters. ethiopia, rwanda
asciilifeform: even coffee
nubbins`: asciilifeform there are plenty of small-batch gourmet roasters that sell online
nubbins`: "coffee subscriptions" are a thing, even.
asciilifeform: yes

asciilifeform: yes, i can gentooize it and get real coffee
asciilifeform: but what i actually want is to live in the civilized world.
nubbins`: where specialty coffee is not delivered to your door twice monthly, but within walking distance
