pete_dushenski: "no reason"
mircea_popescu: "But what you need to get out of these stories is how this generation and forwards will deal with guilt: externalizing it, converting it to shame, and then taking solace in the pockets of support that inevitably arise. Everyone is famous to 15 people, and that's just enough people to help you sleep at night.
mircea_popescu: It is, in effect, crowdsourcing the superego, and when that expression catches on remember where you first heard it."

mircea_popescu: da fuck is this "we all agree" insanity device. there is NOT ONE SINGLE OUGHT "we" all agree on.,
mircea_popescu: never was.
pete_dushenski: "The world’s most powerful two-phase immersion cooling (2PIC) project, which will be deployed in a 40+ MW data center being constructed by BitFury Group, is currently underway in the Republic of Georgia."
mircea_popescu: not bad.
pete_dushenski: not quite the cooled gas immersion you'd recommended, but on the way
mircea_popescu: "That unpleasant moment when "principles" you were supporting ~strictly~ because "of the principle of the thing" and pointedly not because of the convenient manner in which they worked upon a restricted set of circumstances decide to move on to another set of circumstances and work consistently but against your (inconsistent) preference. The only thing to do is look away."
mircea_popescu: ^that happens to be the title of the next trilema article.

pete_dushenski: a couple comments on jack baruth's site lit off quite the vitriolic firestorm.
pete_dushenski: quelle fun !
pete_dushenski: some more gems pointed in my direction of late:
pete_dushenski: "the point is Latin hasn’t been in common use for a long time outside of the Holy See. using a Latin phrase for which there is an exact equivalent English term is little more than the intellectual way to talk down to someone."
pete_dushenski: "I would not be surprised to find out that you work as a plant security guard for just above minimum wage, on a night shift, where you use your time reading to try to be able to impress others with your intelligence, or that you live in a basement apartment, or drive a 2o year old junker."

mircea_popescu: quelle funne!
mircea_popescu: for the record, using the original latin phrases over their vernacular "just as good" later "equivalents" is not merely and not just talking down to some (the "intellectual" equivalent is nonsense, but let's ignore it).
mircea_popescu: they are the sign of a commitment, that is very much alligned with what v is, and with why we have the bitcoind we have, and the foundation we have, and everything else.
mircea_popescu: they are also the sigh of a disavowal, the manifestation of how we desipse the ruminants.
mircea_popescu: no, no matter how "accepted" your vernacular gets, it will NEVER supersede Latin. because it's not a "consumers have come to expect" thing. nothing is.
mircea_popescu: voting doesn't change the world.

mircea_popescu: "Shame will never be enough-- when your identity is "strong" enough nothing shames you, not a sex tape or a prison term, you'll take that scarlet letter and put it on a tight tank top and wear it ironically, not to mention hotly." << he happens to be exactly rtight, by the way.
mircea_popescu: the reason we insist females be "bashful" ie, ashamed to desnude in public is that an overactive shame IMPLIES a weak personality
mircea_popescu: and we like our women the consistency of loose stool.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile a guy that's ashamed of going to football practice / army bootcamp / school in the buff is... not really a man.
mircea_popescu: which is why alley flashers are all ~marginal~ men. the device works exactly like the homeless dragging around broken ipads works. "hey, i might be refuse, but at least X!"
asciilifeform: i thought it was more of a 'sympathetic magic' (term of art re: shamanology) item
mircea_popescu: (and obvioujsly, the most enraged by the shameless hussies are the old household women. because they know that her weakness is the only prayer they got.)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform they'd collect wallets, then.
asciilifeform: nono the 'flashers'
asciilifeform: this is 'collect wallets' for sex, no ?
mircea_popescu: i dun think so.
mircea_popescu: if it were sympathetic magic they'd be in the strip club
mircea_popescu: (with sex, unlike money, sympathetic magic works. can for instance fuck a girl's friends to fuck her.)
mircea_popescu: for that matter, the more sex you have, and the more exposed to it they be, the more likely. and so on.
asciilifeform: but there is a minimal takeoff velocity below which the magic is powerless.
mircea_popescu: like all magic
asciilifeform: by the time you can talk about 'fuck a girl's friends' you are no longer marginal nobody
mircea_popescu: in fact the most important "why did you fuck ?" answer on porn set is "well, wanted to try it out"
asciilifeform: sorta like how $ 100M can 'make money' but $1 won't, not even at 100M slower rate.
