ben_vulpes: i have yet to meet a teacher i'd entrust the whole of any educational program to outside my wot
ben_vulpes: perhaps a slice here or there, like latin or ballroom dancing
ben_vulpes: but never fucking ever will i readily consent to stick my offspring in a daycare for an amount of attention outside of my control to be paid to them.
mircea_popescu: oh i thought you were contemplating a mistress.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: narrative scrolling through my head is "tbl made htmlz, smart ppl thot waz cool, rest of internet piled on, shartups demanded cc processing over webz, tls/ssl became defacto"
mircea_popescu: here's the thing : not your call to make. by the time they need or can benefit from that sort of thing, they're old enough to pick their own/
ben_vulpes: tutoring is decent work for a mistress, neh?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes that's actually pretty accurate. except smart ppl did not think it was cool. "smart" people had visions of a wikipedia-bayesian world.
mircea_popescu: amusingly enough, the facts fell in, but their interpretation of "what it'll be like"... heh heh
ben_vulpes: well i did think about it for a few weeks before bringing it up. 'was cool' is a simplification of the whole 'semantic web' trip.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: old enough to pick, old enough also to have the wot to select from?
mircea_popescu: nah, it's not even that. it's ... you know how the sort of fucktard that writes sf and like... lives off juices and shit [we're talking 70s here] always represents "the future" with these robed floating aliens of "twu ewolwed" ?
mircea_popescu: well... they figured that's it.
mircea_popescu: ironically... it did bring them the coveted fucking star trek touch panels
mircea_popescu: ie, all the factual bits DID fall into place.
ben_vulpes: heh
ben_vulpes: but on the other thread, from what pool are 'they' to 'pick their own'? must i not provide?
mircea_popescu: there is no pool.
mircea_popescu: if they're worth a shit they'll find and if not, a well. most stuff developing in an uterus is meant to abort sooner or later anyway.
BingoBoingo: <ben_vulpes> but on the other thread, from what pool are 'they' to 'pick their own'? must i not provide? << The pool that knows wheeties actually isn't the breakfast of champion, because that is two scoops of whey and a scoop of dry instant coffee in an shaker.
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: you are going to get too swole
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Well, I'm still cutting to the point where I can start getting swole without also getting fat at the same time.
ben_vulpes: > cutting
ben_vulpes: IT BEGINS
BingoBoingo: Well, how else to you handle alcoholic fatty liver than by... chasing the fat out of the liver?
mircea_popescu: lol
BingoBoingo has already lost a substantial amount of liver weight since the sobriety experiment began as measured by poking the upper right quadrant of my abdomen and contemplating the size of the organ I just pissed off.

BingoBoingo: "On Sunday afternoon, as rain continued to pummel much of the St. Louis region, 2015 officially became the wettest year on record. It came amid reports of widespread flooding, a plea by officials in West Alton to evacuate and the closure of Interstate 70 through the heart of St. Charles County. And with rain continuing Monday, river levels throughout the region are expected to hit near-record crests by New Year’s Eve."
BingoBoingo: Actual flood season usually doesn't start until April, or at least March
BingoBoingo: "Mississippi river levels at Alton are expected to reach nearly 39 feet by Thursday, only 3.7 feet lower than the 1993 record. In St. Louis, the water is expected to crest just shy of 45 feet, which would rank only behind the 49.6 feet recorded during the flood of ’93."
BingoBoingo: "Down river, the Mississippi was forecast to reach or surpass the 1993 record of 49.74 at Chester, Ill., on Friday. That level would impact Menard Correctional Center and comes within inches of the top of the levee protecting St. Genevieve, Mo."
