ben_vulpes: rip lc
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: re. http://trilema.com/2015/trilema-burns/ : you write that "Apparently the EU is about as impotent in practice as its fame for impotence promises in theory" in response to you being able to search for that person on google.com.ar ; whereas that letter plainly states that "Only results on European versions of Google are affected."
Framedragger: I am of course not disagreeing with the spirit of the matter, incl. regarding impotence etc.
mircea_popescu: i don't get it, they lack the letters a and r on eu keyboards ?
mircea_popescu: are you proposing that there's some sort of substance to an url, like "searching on google.com.ar" is somehow similar to "fucking girls in the alley behind the bar IN ROUEN rather than Bekescsaba" ?
Framedragger: i'm sure that google did not want to do more than was required, so they made the effects visible on the "european" version of google, for european users (the latter identified by ip address or, if logged into google accounts, selected country there; or somesuch).
mircea_popescu: there's exactly no relation between url and geolocation is there ?
Framedragger: so yes it's super trivial, but then - .eu can't dictate google's search results for non-european customers
mircea_popescu: in the end i'm not sure what you're saying.
Framedragger: hmm
mircea_popescu: "but mp, in the game they're playing this makes sense to them" "okay ?"
Framedragger: i got confused. basically, i think a european customer would get the same (doctored) results if they ran a search on .ar.
Framedragger: basically.
mircea_popescu: nonsense.
mircea_popescu: this is like saying a frenchman would see the internet in french even if he called trilema.com
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: fuck, you're right. "Some results may have been removed under data protection law in Europe" when running from google eu; both trilema URLs when running from .ar. what is this nonsense
Framedragger: okay, this is ridoinculously ineffective. lol.
jurov: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-11#1565865 layering "expressive" abstractions is not the only way to fit thigs into head.
a111: Logged on 2016-11-11 01:17 asciilifeform: the flow charts add 0 to the expressivity
mircea_popescu: the most important point here is that you for some god forsaken reason ACTUALLY THOUGHT, in your head, that if you write "whore" in lipstick on the back of your wife you're now fucking a whore.
Framedragger: look i didn't have much hope for this eurolaw thing on google etc, i did however assume that to circumvent it, one would have to spend at least a few minutes (masking IP whatnot), not a few seconds
mircea_popescu: this is what they mean when they say reddit makes one stupid : "social media" tends to drive this name-object confusion in young'uns.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger no, you're gettin' it now :D
Framedragger: my whole worldview is an array of name-object confusions. half of my mental life is like that "hesperus is phoshorus" problem
Framedragger: "but if the first star is planet venus and the second star is planet venus, then.. WHO WAS PHONE"
Framedragger: 'prenatal child gets introduced to semantics' kind of mental blur >.<
mircea_popescu: well, it goes away as you age.
mircea_popescu: anyway, frege's own example is much better than the latter retellings in english. he used der Abendstern and der Morgenstern.
mircea_popescu: you see what the anglotards did ? they replaced the names ; but not innocently. they replaced to serve the two things anglotards are all about : a fake loftyness (oh noes, really, classical names by the classically educated ? except medieval fakes ? ohoho how very cheers-vilised we find ourselves, that frasier crane will eat his heart out!) and a practical confusion. Now you need ~them~ to explain to you what the names mean,
mircea_popescu: it's no longer evident like in that Nazi's naive packaging. It's good for the economy! It creates jobs!
mircea_popescu: stay away from translations ; especially in philosophy (which is everything besides plumbing) ; especially when translated into english ; and especially when translated from german.
mircea_popescu: stay away from translation, for translation is treason.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: good point. a fair note though, some translations use 'morning star' and 'evening star', which convey the meaning well, i think.
Framedragger: though, then it's not clear that 'morning star' and 'evening star' are *proper* names (like Jacob), so...
Framedragger: ugh, translation.
Framedragger: (they're supposed to be proper names, not just 'table')
mircea_popescu: the problem with trason isn't that you can't find a faithful translation.
mircea_popescu: the problem with treason is that you can't identify which it is
mircea_popescu: as per macbeth, you know.
mircea_popescu: treason drives insanity.
Framedragger: :)
Framedragger: hm. yeah
Framedragger: i wonder, maybe some of frege's stuff can be read in english in 'relative' (i'm naive yes) safety. for example his foundations of Arithmetic
Framedragger: i've never read the latter, and my deutsch is bad (but in principle passable with a dictionary at hand, possibly)
mircea_popescu: there's a reason the perfidious islands produced nothing in their entire history. that reason has to do to how there isn't even the words to translate properly, so either they hide behind some greek statue located in a french garden, or else they make with the common nouns.
mircea_popescu: english is a fine language to do your accounting in.
mircea_popescu: (and yes, i'm saying that the typical reasoning, "he said grab them by the pussy therefore he disrespects women" is not simply due to the speaker being stupid, or lazy. it's also how english happens to work, internally.)
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: incidentally, any recommendation on which of the following to pick to learn as a new tongue? (sample at hand is due to some future pragmatical considerations, in terms of possible living places etc. - maybe not he last entry): french (i can't french at all), german (some knowledge), portuguese (none), russian (very rudimentary, call it none)
mircea_popescu: what's your process for learning as a new tongue ?
Framedragger: i haven't decided. last time it happened i was in high school. healthy dose of conversation + good textbooks, though that is not really a concrete process at all.
Framedragger: i'd like to be able to read some god damn decent literature in something else than english or lithuanian (the latter is an OK language, too bad it's language of proles)
mircea_popescu: languages are to be learnt from women. so go out with girls you like, pick the first one who also has a lot of booksat home, learn her language.
jurov: Framedragger: if literature, then defo go for german
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: nice, that sounds.. not like a chore. some very nice advice to be tried.. thanks.
mircea_popescu: or french. or portuguese. or russian. but yes.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger i never learned a language any other way, and this includes fucking latin.
Framedragger: wowza
Framedragger: that's pretty cool.
mircea_popescu: (yes, the reason mp doesn't lisp may have a lot to do with the absence of hot lisp chicks.)
Framedragger imagines mircea_popescu learning declensions by writing with ink on a girl's back
mircea_popescu: lol. you know, if you drive to the starbucks it doesn't follow you actually stopped the car inside the booth.
Framedragger: jurov: curious why german in particular. but hm! fair enough i guess
mircea_popescu: possibly cuz that's what he read ? you certainly won't starve in any of the ones mentioned.
jurov: Framedragger: was interested into psychology, went to read in original
Framedragger: ..yeah i'm not going for sindarin or w/e language(s) tolkien invented. could be fun, but.. eh
jurov: ebonics ftw!
mircea_popescu: hey, at least learning it will go easy.
mircea_popescu: rather related, http://trilema.com/2013/the-wonderful-powers-of-make-believe/
mircea_popescu: incidentally, after all the blather about how russia influenced the elections (hey, check it out, russia can do that!) where's the articles about how sweden organised protests against trump ?

asciilifeform: 'I'm getting that for 5.96 currently. .com .net 15 each ? Is this some kind of a joke that's funny in your culture ?' << i'd be curious, then, what is mircea_popescu getting for the 5.96 $, and why not continue to buy it.
jurov: gandi.net needs to join tmsr. then we can have domains for phree :D
asciilifeform: ( and how many other necessary things does mircea_popescu buy at-cost, and really, there's no catch..? )
asciilifeform: jurov: there is an upstream cost, given as all dns regs are sub-leases from hitler.
jurov: I see you got the joke.
asciilifeform: at one point i worked for a co that supplied dns reg as part of a larger package of high-roller services (rather than, as usually seen with registrars, to public) -- the 'crown concession' was quite costly
asciilifeform: (mid 6-figs at the time iirc)
asciilifeform: (they also collected fat moneys for the service, i shit thee not, of watching that the domain reg does not 'walk away', because not-winblowzing, not-using-guessable-pw, etc. is Too Much To Expect from multi-$B 'tbtf' orgs)
asciilifeform: this is one of those affairs bitcoin oughta be delightfully perverting to all hell, as per mircea_popescu's prophecy

asciilifeform: i cannot tell, from this pic, how thing was made.
asciilifeform: perhaps - from papier mache.
mircea_popescu: it seems to me the rail came with holes, and the "blades" came with steel spring which got forced into the hole.
asciilifeform: or rivet, aha.
mircea_popescu: inside rivet ?
asciilifeform: keyhole rivet.
asciilifeform: like the chicago pigeon system.
mircea_popescu: it wouldn't be visibly loose. there's like 2mm space between "blade" and its seat on the side of the attachment.
mircea_popescu: that's a good sign they're just loose there
asciilifeform: strange thing to make.
mircea_popescu: (you can see the sun shine through, so you know)
asciilifeform: but i can easily imagine demented pope buying this, like he bought the rest of it, 'looked SOOOO K000000L!1111'
asciilifeform: homes of american 'rich & famous' tend to have this flavour, or at least the parts visible from outside
mircea_popescu: myeah. still, back at reality ranch, poor quality low value fence 3/10.
asciilifeform: betcha it does the job tho.
asciilifeform: chixx - stay in.
asciilifeform: (slowed in escape for the 10 minutes or so that the chix-retention battalion needs to pick'em back up, throw in truck bed, and return to their pit)
asciilifeform: fences per se are a largely decorative item in modern world -- the item which actually does the work is the microwave perimeter sensor
BingoBoingo: Still does little to keep determined invader from seizing ranch and nekkid chix.
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: "lynced"?

mircea_popescu: dude what chix even.
asciilifeform: nfi! mircea_popescu did suggest that it was an epsteinarium..
mircea_popescu: that place looks like you'd be hard pressed to find fresh veal. let alone anything you'd want to fuck.
mircea_popescu: yes, but not in the high performance sexual sense.
asciilifeform: in which, then, sense ?
mircea_popescu: there's just a bunch of dorks doing what every single servant class american SHOULD be doing, which is to say "yes sir no sir thank you sir oh how great you look today".
mircea_popescu: travolta goes there to decompress, when he gets fucking sick of smartass cab drivers, ironic waitresses and whatnot other "i'm only doing this until" idiots.
asciilifeform: sounds like a viable business model for northkr!11111
asciilifeform: 'travolta service'

mircea_popescu: then they cut it to bits and put it in doggy bowls.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i lost the transmission past "room with mother"
asciilifeform: probably per customer request !! some might prefer, e.g., that the 'snickers' be on a fishing hook, on a line.
mircea_popescu: lol
asciilifeform: or in mousetrap.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Well I'm guessing Herr Lafond who presents Baltimore does not have television of own and for a change decided to take refuge outside of city limits rather than shelter in place.
mircea_popescu: i guess.
asciilifeform: i thought he lived in an old broken clay amphora!
mircea_popescu: so is sanders gonna split his own faction, what's the prediction market say ?
BingoBoingo: Sanders likely not long for this world seeing as he is oldest of the olds.
mircea_popescu: Call it American Socialist Party, prolly get about a tenth to a third of current dem + all the "radicals" and whatnots. since the democrats are utterly fucked with all-minorities PLUS they're going to lose 5-10 more senators in 2018 (look at the map lol, it's a carnage, 6 sens up for reelection in freshly red states) so it'll be forever a case of "we are better than the dnc, we suck but they fail".
mircea_popescu: it's his moment, if he'll take it.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo all he has to do is put the cornerstone.
BingoBoingo: Possibru
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: perhaps he can take the mummy of cpusa out of the museum and resurrect
