asciilifeform: that's only +ev if $1/day is money somewhere you come from

mircea_popescu: decimation they';re not capable of it. there's this very insistently nursed delusion among white useless usians that somehow some types of work are "below" them in the sense that OF COURSE they could do it. not so. alf has it : fuck you for "being able to" put the fries in the frier once. do it every day forever.
mircea_popescu: so no. they are not capable, of any kind of work.
mircea_popescu: not capable of intellectual work because not smart enough.
mircea_popescu: not capable of labour because not patient enough.
mircea_popescu: the only work they're capable of is reddit shitslinging, and there's a ton of dudes doin that cheaper and better already. easily 100x what's needed anyway.
mircea_popescu: also - programmer is not a craftsman. "programmer" is the boy equivalent of the "artsy" chick. one does stupid shit and "sells it" on etsy, the other does stupid shit and "sells it" on github

mircea_popescu: seriosly, i'd like to point out the pattern of it. clearly the guy is buying tailings, ie, overflow traffic/whatever's available to fit his budget. ends up with what overflows.
mircea_popescu: i'm quite flattered, honestly. to think someone hates my shit enough that he's willing to spend to mess with it for part of a day likely more than what people paid to read it in its entire history...
mircea_popescu: it's its own, special brand of compliment.
mircea_popescu: sorta like the situation of a spy, really - the enemy is willing to spend millions to nail him, whereas his own team has to be fought for a 10k allocation sort of deal.
asciilifeform: usg 'drop ten million rocket to nail a camel' is generous !
mircea_popescu: something like that, but really this looks more like butthurt noob "with connections"
asciilifeform: and 'his own team has to be fought for 10k' is for the same fundamental reason that a programmer who saves a $maxint reactor gets a $smallint bonus for his trouble
asciilifeform: or perhaps is simply fired slightly later
asciilifeform: or why the food-lever-operator chimp gets a slightly weaker beating as his 'salary'
mircea_popescu: dumb way to run things.
asciilifeform: i know of nothing which was ever run in any other way.
asciilifeform: could exist, perhaps!
mircea_popescu: i never ran things in that dumb manner.
asciilifeform: like island of stability somewhere ten metres below the known mendeleev table
mircea_popescu: also, japan didn't.
asciilifeform: no?
mircea_popescu: you save reactor - you get it. it's yours now.
asciilifeform: only if blue blood
mircea_popescu: has its failings, but at least it's fun to be in.
mircea_popescu: nah. if "blue blood" i nthe sense of, willing to put up a fucking banner.
mircea_popescu: or w/e they use.
mircea_popescu: it's also a dumb system, for the record. tho perhaps less dumb and certainly dumb for different reasons.
mircea_popescu: (to understand why it's dumb - imagine your prize for rescuing drowning damsel is the damsel. what if you don't want damsels, just enjoy swimming ?)
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: american system is even more 'interesting':
mircea_popescu: it broadly sunk the shogunate at any rate.
asciilifeform: your 'reward' is the damsel's menstrual output

mircea_popescu: shinohai but you're the only one wioth mesa < 10. so that'd likely be it.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: to pound in the last nail (for now) in the subject: razi, avicenna, et al had it easy compared to modern folk: they could at least charge the rich folks of their time for providing something superficially like working medicine
asciilifeform: but no one will pay for, e.g., de-drepperization of bitcoin
asciilifeform: because 'who the fuck pays for sunlight'
mircea_popescu: you're model of how these guys' lives worked is really very bad you know.
asciilifeform: my model is based on the same almost-nonexistent record as everybody else's ...

pete_dushenski: Venkatesh Rao is some kinda troll.
mircea_popescu: he was "being ironic", in current pop-parlance. had plato in fact and earnestly "bemoaned progress" played straight, he'd have complained about the innovation of allowing teen boys not be raped (mostly championed by socrates, for that matter).

pete_dushenski: though they each earned a contravex article in their respective heydeys.

pete_dushenski: gernika: i'll give it a peek here.

mircea_popescu: wait a second. you're not seriously trying to understand "what executives do" by reading bloggers' commentary on tv shows ?!

mircea_popescu: actual best timne is never.
asciilifeform: like engl.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform russian is 95% derp by weight too
mircea_popescu: that's not the criteria.
mircea_popescu: the criteria is, whether the remaining 5% are entusiastically sucking the cock or not.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not as strong a tradition there - yet - of 'everybody gets to write'
mircea_popescu: that may seem like the driver of language shittyfication but it is not.
mircea_popescu: languages go to shit for two reasons. the main one is, elite being humble. the secondary one is, no nation.
mircea_popescu: languages spoken by proud elites of actual nations do greatr. whether the pride is justified or not, and irrespective of what it does to the country otherwise.
chetty: nation as a thing is rapidly turning into history
mircea_popescu: not that rapidly.
mircea_popescu: the once great french nation is going the way of all other failed experiments - austro-hungarian, united-statesian, whatever.
mircea_popescu: the chinese are doing fine, the russians are doing fine, even the fucktarded greeks or romanians are doing fine.
mircea_popescu: nationo-language wise at least.
mircea_popescu: heck, idish died but hebrew fucking survived! fancy that.
chetty: greeks wont last long, neither will Romania since they are in eu
mircea_popescu: i don't know the greek situation well enough to quote chapter and verse past the general impression, but as to romanian i can sign you a warrant. robotzi is strictly sufficient proof, for decades, perhaps a century.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> heck, idish died but hebrew fucking survived! fancy that. << It didn't survive. They found a corpse and built around it.
mircea_popescu: "de ce ?" (why ?) "de tot (forever). debarcader (drydock). de verde ce-i iarba (for grass is green). de treci codrii de arama (if you pass the bronze forrest (literary reference)). deranjat la ficat. (upset liver)."
mircea_popescu: that's it.,
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo what did you think survival was ?
BingoBoingo: I was under the impression survival didn't require resurection after dying on the cross
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: tone poemz ?
mircea_popescu: (actually the correct quote is "Foca:De ce? Mo:De tot, debarcader, de verde, ce-i iarba, de maine incepand, de treci codrii de arama, de departe, vezi aproape, destoinic, deranjat la ficat." but anyway)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform spontaneous tone poemz by two kids making a random cartoon show out of their bedroom.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: we have this beat:

mircea_popescu: ahahaha
asciilifeform: ^ these are all poems. in the style indicated above each (e.g., pushkin's)
mircea_popescu: but myeah. i am not the cunt's slightest fuck worried about assrussian.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo it just so happens it died like 8 times to date.
asciilifeform: incidentally, anyone can learn to pronounce - with flavour! - these poemz
asciilifeform: good exercise for folks who like languages but don't know ru yet
mircea_popescu: (anyway, lest the esl reader acquires the wrong impression from the logs - at issue is not that the thing was done, per se. at issue is HOW the thing is done. which is to say : shockingly unexpected, which requires a) a large body of work against which to expect pre-existend and b) a language strong enough to shock against that. these are plain impossible requisites in "reasonable" languages, and they can't be met by p
mircea_popescu: eople who stick together for "reasonable" reasons.)
asciilifeform: see also orlov re: english being a technical pidgin
asciilifeform: used by precisely the folks 'together for reasonable reasons'
mircea_popescu: this is why poetry worked back in the day the english aristrocracy imposed it on the masses, but esperanto and ebonics do not nor will ever work.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform aha.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo it just so happens it died like 8 times to date. << So did actual Greek, as did actual Fortran.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: to be clear, i won't recommend esperanto as a literary language. but will point out that it plays somewhat of the same role morse plays for 'hams', or sign language for the literate deaf. i.e. a ~shield against mainstream cultural poison~
mircea_popescu: wrong kind of shield.
asciilifeform: lets you have a little 'usenet' going. for a spell.
mircea_popescu: corporate job is idem "a shield" for usian fucktards, like working "for the govtr" was a shield that still got germans hung and soviets spat on.
mircea_popescu: i suppose the greatest mysetery of life is that there are shields you want and shields you do not want.
asciilifeform: castle != jail
asciilifeform: (though a jail can be inside a castle, yes)
mircea_popescu: all castle contains a jail.
mircea_popescu: and for that matter versailles (which is how and why french died) was not a castle, but a jail.
mircea_popescu: i suppose phillipe equalite is the patron saint of dead languages.
mircea_popescu: once he appears, it's the end.
asciilifeform: some shields may cost more than they are worth. but i argue that not-having-britney-spears-in-your-language is worth ~something~ culturally
mircea_popescu: nononon
mircea_popescu: not a matter of cost.
asciilifeform: just like not having had tumblr pheminism in a language yet, is a great cultural asset
mircea_popescu: some shields are simply not worth having. period. for any cost. they mostly cost "0" anyway.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not so.
mircea_popescu: tumblr pheminism is a great strengthener. for a live one.
asciilifeform: recall the old thread about north kr?
mircea_popescu: bout 12 of em,...
asciilifeform: the world's only nation without mcdonalds
asciilifeform: and this may almost make up for everything else
asciilifeform: they will eat own shoes, yes. but not mcd
mircea_popescu: i do not see this.
asciilifeform: like a nature preserve
asciilifeform: see the point of those ?
mircea_popescu: nature preserves are for dead animals.
mircea_popescu: and no i do not.
mircea_popescu: let them die.
asciilifeform: north kr (at least as seen from my distant perch) is a backup copy
asciilifeform: of civilization prior to mcd.
mircea_popescu: hahaha no.
mircea_popescu: not unless you imagine the stale sandwich 3 months in your fridge is a "backup copy" of a sandwich
mircea_popescu: tell you what - if we ever lose sandwiching, ima reinvent it
mircea_popescu: and iom not using your pile of dog vomit.
asciilifeform: and prior to 'worth of individual' and other crocks of shit which have spilled since- everywhere
asciilifeform: it is an old, worm-eaten backup, yes
asciilifeform: but somewhere in it could be a usable kB or two.
mircea_popescu: you can't backup live things.
mircea_popescu: you know what ? there's a usable kb or two on github too
mircea_popescu: go. use.
asciilifeform: it's a culture without reddit and 'worth of indiviiiiidualz'
asciilifeform: gotta be worth something.
mircea_popescu: no, it is not.
mircea_popescu: it is a culture with a fucktarded, buggy, slow implementation of these
mircea_popescu: done by hand out of rice husks.
mircea_popescu: i'd rather see the best in all fields, including poisons.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu brings up interesting point. entirely possible that north kr will binge to death on reddit, like the red skinned man did on liquor, when the time comes
mircea_popescu: what ELSE ?
asciilifeform: and on else
mircea_popescu: for them reddit IS the west, much like for yours truly, outlet store catalogues was
mircea_popescu: i was 10 at the time, but still.
asciilifeform: for me it was... the house in 'tom & jerry' !
asciilifeform: (among others)
mircea_popescu: same idea i guess.
chetty: I wonder if being on the internet so much only makes you guys now see the 'west' as reddit and there just might be actual civilization out there if you get off the computers.
asciilifeform: chetty: there sure is! it lives in the library.
asciilifeform: and smells of mildew and horse glue
asciilifeform: because stopped happenening around 1960 or so
asciilifeform: can't speak for others, but ~i~ still visit it.
mircea_popescu: chetty you'll probably get asked what asciilifeform got asked yesterday re "industry".
chetty: funny, I recall life before I lived on the computer, and it wasn't that long ago.
mircea_popescu: there still is this civilisation ? where ?
mircea_popescu: retirement homes, maybe. while that lasts.
asciilifeform: thing is, if something is alive inside an impenetrable bubble, it is not alive.
asciilifeform: the 'real programmerz' are not in such a bubble, in that you are interacting with them every time you flip the light switch or turn on the tap, or get into a '747'
mircea_popescu: cop out of major degree.
mircea_popescu: ~I~ am not in a bubble, because i actually take untold hours each quarter to talk here.
asciilifeform: or run therealbitcoin, etc
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, everyone else in fucking finance pretty much is
mircea_popescu: some, the brighter ones, are sort-of trying, twitter, what have you. maybe it works, who knows.
mircea_popescu: and if you wish you can say the same re programmers, and i'll buy it
mircea_popescu: but it also illustrates just how strained the melted cheese is
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: they aren't - as far as i can tell - talking
asciilifeform: 'spartan speaks with his sword
asciilifeform: '
mircea_popescu: risky argument.
asciilifeform: because talking with the 'fresh grads' (much less the public at large) is increasingly a pearls/swine proposition
mircea_popescu: spartan may well speak with his sword, but this does not promise an easy translation.
asciilifeform: and this is felt, in the gut, by just about everyone
mircea_popescu: for one thing, computing is language.
mircea_popescu: so let them wot.
asciilifeform: they wot
asciilifeform: it just doesn't include anybody under 50
asciilifeform: analogue wot.
mircea_popescu: understand
assbot: ... ( )
mircea_popescu: i made this point, vaguely, when we were discussing our own survival, in the form of "lordship lists" etc. but it stands - if you have a systematic closure you're in a bubble.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: wat
mircea_popescu: "nobody under 50" means bubble.
asciilifeform: aha
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Cake

mircea_popescu: governments - do.
mircea_popescu: they're the first ones that do.
mircea_popescu: and wtf name is "Clyde Frog"

ascii_field: ^
mircea_popescu: bullshit.
mircea_popescu: and ftr, the nist ec crapolade was ALWAYS regarded as suspiciouys at best "by people in the business"
mircea_popescu: not "since snowden"
ascii_field: the question of 'what prng to use' has never differed from the question of what kind of animal's shit to smear in wounds
ascii_field: yes, medieval doctors may have debated, horse vs cow
mircea_popescu: anyway. i don;t know who this guy is and don't care what he [thinks he] may have to say on the topic.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: looks to me like he's trying to unearth names/faces
ascii_field: how well - can't say
mircea_popescu: there's going to be none of this "two bit idiot" A/B-and-spam approach to "credibility"

mircea_popescu: ascii_field he is starting in the wrong place and therefore may never succeed.
ascii_field does not know where 'right place' is, so won't comment
mircea_popescu: let me formalize this for reader's benefit.
mircea_popescu: 1. take a complex situation C about which propositions may be formed Pi which are decidably correct or false through a T(Px) function.
mircea_popescu: 2. take a list L of actors Lj , who decide (D) on which P to rely, and are scored by function S(Lx), according to the impact of their reliance on false P (which is uncomputable at all points before running S)
mircea_popescu: 3. create a set S of twobitidiots Sk, who put forth statements Q about various P, so that the actual T(Q(Px)) is normally distributed over the list S.
mircea_popescu: in this model, the fact that Sy displays any score on the basis of his past emitted Q is no proof of anything.
mircea_popescu: in particular no trust or crediblity may attach to that record, for the simple reason that THAT IS HIS FUCKING JOB.
ascii_field: 'stopped clock'
mircea_popescu: the entire list S exists so that "credible" S's can appear so that selected Ls can be fucked over.
ascii_field: like our german ?
mircea_popescu: which one ?
mircea_popescu: in any case : i am not valuing nor even reading "opinions" of anon folk ie Qs.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: the 'phuctor debunked' german
mircea_popescu: specifically because if one of these is not open to challenge, he is ipso definition an S. and anons are ipso definitio not open to challenges
mircea_popescu: ascii_field like the whole swathe of "bitcoin experts", and also like "cryptography experts" of the ilk of some nobody in particular running ""
mircea_popescu: anyway. this argument is both too complex to be readily "intuited" by the children and also its results are deeply inconvenient to their wants and expectations (mostly of playing the spy and generalsly speaking "mattering" in their own head), and so i don't expect the S process to go away. it's prolly going to be productive enough to become a mode of "culture" on the interwebs.
mircea_popescu: at the very margin, this discussion reduces to the discussion of al schwartz' lack of access to measuring processes, if you recall it.
mircea_popescu: because yes, if science were "open to all comers" in this sense, it'd just get ddos'd into the shit by S's.
ascii_field: see also the maths profs shredding unsolicited fermat 'proofs' unread
ascii_field: (also in same thread iirc)
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: anyway. makes for great tumblr stars, goes splendid for an ama, can prolly retire to doing voice-overs for "did you know" factoid tv/nature show.
mircea_popescu: so it's a living, best of luck.
mircea_popescu: but derived from it, a decent pseudo-AI project would be to make a long list of propositions, sort them in a thousand or so lists (ie blogs) and "publish" "articles".
mircea_popescu: probably can live off the subscriptions.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: the one twist is, as far as i can tell, most of these 'plowing flies' disinfo agents are... unpaid
mircea_popescu: which is why i propose to do the job with a computer. it's plowing, there's no reason to pay for it.
mircea_popescu: let the tractor plow.

ascii_field: also alan sokal
mircea_popescu: imo the entire menagerie, orlov, yarvin, whoi have you are simply doing this by hand
ascii_field: o & y don't really belong in the picture
ascii_field: (not that they are honest people, necessarily - but not shannonizers)
mircea_popescu: ascii_field if you recall, i challenged orlov and he came out with "I am a robot doing the above".
mircea_popescu: literally.
ascii_field: wai when
mircea_popescu: when we discussed the "inflation in romania" factual error in one of his articles.
ascii_field: link ?
mircea_popescu: and i also challenged yarvin, who... kept silent.
mircea_popescu: which i color to mean the above.
ascii_field: he's been silent entirely
ascii_field: for some years now
mircea_popescu goes to dig the link up
ascii_field: they started paying yarvin to shut the fuck up
ascii_field: recall ?
decimation: it didn't help
ascii_field: 'helped' in the basic sense of 'no more mold buggered'
decimation: specifically I'm thinking of him being booted from that conference

ascii_field: 'you promised, no more sedition, recall?'

mircea_popescu: dear peoiple : seriously, stop with the google blogs. you're indistinct.
mircea_popescu: but otherwise, i have to strike the foregoing. i never challenged orlov.
ascii_field: they keep blogs in public toilets, yes
ascii_field: for similar reason as to why mircea_popescu doesn't want to buy his isp trunk line
decimation: in yarvin's case I always thought it was attaching irony to

ascii_field: two basic but imho entirely separate problems with mr mold - a) he wasn't entirely mentally clean of usg to begin with ( most of mircea_popescu's observations fall into (a)) b) he was approached, as early as 2010, and told 'your crackpot os will be funded and you can sleep ad libitum, but there is a price'

ascii_field: it is my working hypothesis, at any rate
decimation: ascii_field: and if b happened it almost certainly was at the foot of peter thiel or one of his cronies
ascii_field: decimation: we more or less know it was thiel
mircea_popescu: what did he get anyway ? 20 billion ?
ascii_field: iirc is was south of 15m
mircea_popescu: if that bunch of watsap scammers got 20bn, i have no idea why anyone would take less than 10 bn a head from usg.
ascii_field: just enough to sleep ad libitum
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: he took what was given
mircea_popescu: gotta keep up the prices.
mircea_popescu: i never heard of anyone sleeping as you say through "Taking what was given"
mircea_popescu: ya know ?
ascii_field: the alternative package probably involved feeding his wife and children to pirannhas
mircea_popescu: heh. if only.
decimation: nah, just let inflation eat
ascii_field: he was, if anyone recalls, freshly broke
decimation: he did beg
ascii_field: after ~8 yrs of sleep-ad-libitum
mircea_popescu: wanna bet this one won't take 4 ?
ascii_field: already 5
mircea_popescu: those 8 years were started in a much better time for usg.
mircea_popescu: o ? well then!
decimation: well, given that his project has a gigantic red target painted on the side for all amateur-political enforcers
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: he's part of the annointed caste now. if the dough runs out, can dilute the shares, etc
ascii_field: more or less ad infinitum

mircea_popescu: so i take it the leaky submarine's still being worked on ?

danielpbarron: (i met a LOT of people this way)
danielpbarron: i had tracked one of my targets down and found him in the main assembly space, and was prepared to follow him out (as you cannot kill someone under the roof of an offical event) but then I saw Fare walk in and I didn't want him to see me following the guy, so I walked up to him instead, and in so doing, lost my actual target :/

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: you may also discover the little 'secret' re: how ham folks keep usg from selling their spectrum to the highest bidder (or most favourite son)
BingoBoingo: Sure, but on the used market there seems to be some actually interesting rigs made for it with broad listening spectrum.

BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> BingoBoingo: you may also discover the little 'secret' re: how ham folks keep usg from selling their spectrum to the highest bidder (or most favourite son) << The part where cellular is worthless?
asciilifeform: as for shortwave, virtually nobody owns their band properly speaking - the crackpot stations lease a time slot (typically, weekly)
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the part where they work as amateur stoolies for usg
BingoBoingo: Ah
asciilifeform: ratting out spectrum violators
asciilifeform: to the point where usg proper barely ever has to hunt for'em
decimation: my understanding is that the fcc doesn't give a fuck unless it interferes with broadcast radio or aircraft

decimation: I can't imagine that these lights are installed safely
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> poor idiots, broadcasting 'i am growing weed!' for miles << I remember freshman year of undergrad being high as fuck reading about infared indentification of marijuana and not realizing till I sobered up that they were talking grow lights and not smoke.
asciilifeform: l0l
BingoBoingo: <decimation> ah apparently they use 1000w high pressure sodium lights << Best part of spectrum for plant growth.
BingoBoingo: Then change color temperature to maximise flowering
decimation: sure, but to handle that kind of power you really should use 220v circuits
decimation: and non-shit magnetic ballasts, cost $$
BingoBoingo: Depends on scale? Maybe scale demands 660 volt or 1.3kilovolt?
decimation: well, I'm assuming most installations use several of these 1000w units
decimation: but if you are going to do it industrially, than 480v three-phase
decimation: using 208v single phase strings
BingoBoingo: Honestly by now I'd expect them to embrace the LED efficienty or build their own reactors.
decimation: I think they do make LED grow lights but then you are talking $$$$
decimation: < 800w for $2.34k
assbot: PhytoMAX 800 LED Grow Lights | Black Dog LED Growing Lights ... ( )
BingoBoingo: There's always $$$ involved in industry.
decimation: yeah but high pressure sodium is less than $500
decimation: granted, it's less efficent, but you gotta invest for the long term to make back that kind of money
BingoBoingo: Lighting really doesn't need that much time to roi.

asciilifeform: (cheapest still when there are armies ~defending~ your fields - e.g., u.s. army in afghan)
asciilifeform: the common belief in ru, i will note, is that usg involvement in afghan is ~strictly, solely~ so that ru cities are rotted with heroin
asciilifeform: i will not say that this is factual
asciilifeform: but i will also not say that it is an unfounded belief
decimation: I suspect that usg isn't too heartbroken over it
asciilifeform: they did help afghan restart opium
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> (cheapest still when there are armies ~defending~ your fields - e.g., u.s. army in afghan) << Medical poppy in India, Culinary poppy in Eastern Europe, and Recreational poppy in Afghanistan
decimation: well, what else are they gonna grow? dirt?
asciilifeform: dirt.
asciilifeform: pushing opium at the untermenschen is a long, proud anglo tradition.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> the common belief in ru, i will note, is that usg involvement in afghan is ~strictly, solely~ so that ru cities are rotted with heroin << US pretty rotten with heroin too. DEA pressure on doctors and economy will do that.
asciilifeform: u.s was rotting with it in 1910

assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 19986 @ 0.00051451 = 10.283 BTC [-]
BingoBoingo: Back in 1910 US was rotting with tincures of opium. Now Zohydro is stocked to the gills in most pharmacies.
asciilifeform: the internashnal komyoooonity helped to change this.

BingoBoingo: Winter doesn't really matter much in the scheme of things outside the California desert.
decimation: not as far as food productiong goes, no
decimation: florida too
BingoBoingo: Dry summers kill crops. Hot wet summers kill crops. The best a we winter does here is offers crops a marginal head start.
BingoBoingo: This year though with the water so far has been awfully bad for orchards.
BingoBoingo: Peach trees are splitting left and right.

BingoBoingo: They knew it was a desert fuck them
BingoBoingo: Just like the rest of Aztlan
BingoBoingo: In a month and a half it will be interesting to see if edible apples happen this year.
BingoBoingo: If the apple trees start breaking up like the peach trees when they put out fruit this year that will be a double whammy rare, takes a decade to catch up damage.
BingoBoingo: Winter 2013-2014 we got weeks of subzero weather, but no lasting damage. Summer 2012 mega-drought (by midwest standards) best peaches ever no lasting damage. This year with a bit cooler than normal summer and lots of rain... it looks like shit is going to be expensive for a while
