mircea_popescu: did you have a copy ?
mircea_popescu: me either. i suspect it's high time to copy everything one might ever need. because...
mircea_popescu: it's all going away.
asciilifeform: and holy shit WHY IS ALL OF GCC IN THERE
asciilifeform: and -- i shit thee not -- 373M of src.
asciilifeform: meanwhile, in the beobachter,
asciilifeform: but meanwhile, elsewhere in vast monkeystan, >> 'The indictment against Tverdokhlebov is based entirely on the years-old chats, with no hard information about specific thefts, suggesting that the feds are using it as a wedge to try and pry more evidence from Tverdokhlebov’s arrest and the search of his computers. Over government objections, a magistrate judge set Tverdokhlebov’s bail at $100,000 last week
asciilifeform: but stayed the man’s release pending a government appeal, set to be heard in Virginia on Friday. The feds are urging that Tverdokhlebov be held without bail, claiming that he has few ties to the U.S. and enough underworld contacts to flee to Mexico and from there to Russia.'
asciilifeform: d00d apparently stowed it all in benjies. in BANK BOXES.
mircea_popescu: pretty naive.
asciilifeform: apparently the only evidence used in the arrest was the mention of this schmuck's name in logs stolen from some other dekulakization candidate.
asciilifeform: in other oddities, apparently picked up by the 'pantsuit' folk, >> '...and the nation sometimes needs them to check the president. James Schlesinger’s loyal act of disloyalty...'
a111: Logged on 2017-01-26 19:28 ben_vulpes: what is this "nixon-shaped box"?
asciilifeform: loyal acts of disloyalty. didjaknow.
mircea_popescu: so far they're losing pretty badly.
asciilifeform: i dun see where is this 'losing'. nao, winning-slightly-slower-than-usual -- sure.
mircea_popescu: in your terms, anything can be said to be anything else.
asciilifeform: << in related winningz
mircea_popescu: they're not even going to try and defend obamacare ; or global warming. that's pretty much it. they're being outflanked on education $$$, there's literally nothing left. desperation moves from umd or the conclave of "tech giants" are just that, beaten dog sqealing because stepped on.
mircea_popescu: i still can't believe they actually opted to engage the judicial system. that was supposed to be the reserve. they've no reserves now.
asciilifeform: it was that or wagner+cyanide
mircea_popescu: but nevertheless.
asciilifeform: if judiciary spins mr.t on its cock like propeller, however, it is not hard to picture obummercare, warmism, the whole orchestra, staying exactly where it is because 'customer has come to expect!' and 'they HAVE RIGHTZ!!!'
mircea_popescu: scarce hope of that.
mircea_popescu: way this works is as an empowerment engine. all trump has to do is keep a steady stream of loud but idiotic fixes coming ; for the judiciary to reject.
mircea_popescu: they're building up his cred, "hey, tried x, tried y, tried z, clinton wouldn't let me!"
asciilifeform: i can see how the spreading worx, mircea_popescu --- but how does the eating work
mircea_popescu: how do you mean ?
mircea_popescu: he doesn't actually need to do anything. all he needs is a good excuse as to why he isn't. so far - they're providing him it.
asciilifeform: well what's the ??? step between 'they wouldn't let me!!' and the proverbial 'profit'
mircea_popescu: !~google mineriada
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: Mineriad - Wikipedia: <>; June 1990 Mineriad - Wikipedia: <>; Mineriada din iunie 1990 - Wikipedia: <>
asciilifeform: ^ is in the l0gz, was quite a read
mircea_popescu: standard procedure. yeltsin bombarded the parliament building yes
asciilifeform: this is obviously possible. note that however nixon did not bombard anything.
asciilifeform: and mr.t has not one schlesinger but, if we are to believe, 1,001.
mircea_popescu: nixon didn't run on a "i will tear down washington dc" ticket.
mircea_popescu: anyway, that's kind-of the hope, i guess, with all the "loyal disloyalty" and "leaks from wh" bs, that maybe he's doing something. except -- he isn't.
mircea_popescu: his winning strat is to watch tv in bathrobe all day, and underline press reports. which is what's literally eating their hearts out.
mircea_popescu: whole machinery's geared up to obstruct a naive nixon, trying to get shit done. it has exactly 0 solutions for the stark opposite.
netmonk: hello
mircea_popescu: heya netmonk
mircea_popescu: how goes ?
netmonk: fine
asciilifeform: in other 'neinneinneinneinnein!'s, >> 'Fake news is “killing people’s minds” according to Apple boss Tim Cook, who is urging the Government to launch a public information campaign to counteract the problem. Mr Cook called for a an awareness campaign similar to those which alerted people to health epidemics such as AIDS in the 1980s and environmental issues including the ozone layer in the 1990s.'
asciilifeform: didjaknow.
asciilifeform: 'Just as major tech companies have accepted they have a social responsibility to combat piracy online and the illegal sharing of content, they also need to help address the spreading of fake news on social media platforms.' << didjaalsoknow.
asciilifeform: RESPONSIBILITY!
BingoBoingo: Tech companies have a responsibilitit to STFU and Labcoin already
BingoBoingo: *Amazing companies
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform cook has a point. trump wh should launch a campaign (paid with public funds) denouncing the ~foreign propaganda~ pushed by the guardian and urging people not to read the libertard fishwraps, nyt&co.
mircea_popescu: specifically because fake news is killing people's minds.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo "tech companies". basically all that's left of the us economy these days is inept dorks playing the "many web users matter!!11" roulette.
mircea_popescu: technically speaking the us economy is ~= egypt economy. the us has silicon valley, egypt has the luxor center for businessmen. fair crop.
BingoBoingo: Well, there's still ass to mouth welfare cycle that feeds walmart and lowers farmers to pederasty
mircea_popescu: there is.
BingoBoingo: From which a bit leaks to feed SV iTunes-isms
mircea_popescu: yeah basically, let's draw this engine.
mircea_popescu: so, the chinese are willing to pay for real estate ; either in the form of actual land, or in the form of distilled land as soy, mineral rights, etc. there's basically an infinite demand for this, they'll buy it all up, whole planet, no problem.
mircea_popescu: the chinese are also willing to pay ~a little~ for umd services, namely, the stamping of "this chinese guy is as good as the best white man" on foreheads of their second sons.
BingoBoingo: Ag subsidies supply Walmart. Walmart harvest SNAP and WIC food programs. SV collects opportunistic purchases of iTunes giftcards at walmart register.
mircea_popescu: the chinese are at the same time pumping out manufactured goods. this is infinite quantity, as much as you can take, no problem.
mircea_popescu: and the whole of the "us" ie really all nato ie really all white world - russia (and - the muslims, if you think they're wwhite) works a cycle which consists of two spinners
mircea_popescu: the "real" spinner, which consists of turning the soil into dust to produce chinese real estate ; this is "farming" and "real estate development" and "mining" and etcetera. such as the soy production in argentina, now and again lulzed at in the logs. dudes totally gutted this place.
mircea_popescu: and the "fake" spinner, which consists of turning the minds of the populace into dust, doing bizarro hollywood-like tournament markets.
mircea_popescu: the latter spinner is spun from the former, but only as much as absolutely strictly needed.
mircea_popescu: that's the whole "who could really imagine the earth could open up to swallow the immense resources of ingenuity of the us".
mircea_popescu: the earth did open up, did swallow.
mircea_popescu: given all this : a) war with chinese must start today ; b) internment camp for us lefties should have already been a thing. the japs had no business being there in ww2. the us left has no business being alive.
asciilifeform: lel, war with the folx having planet's ~only remaining general-purpose industrial base. will go great
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Mexico still exists!
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: pygmystans where foreign devils set up conveyors, made of imported devilstuff, for pygmy to slave at, are not 'industrial base'
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It's a sort of refugarium were US companies that are too white to rassle Chinesium maintaim production under their own management.
BingoBoingo: *where
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you drop the hand the moment you know it can't win, not the moment you feel you can afford to do so.
mircea_popescu: we're not fucking women. feelings don't enter into it. war before winter, and the wholesale of california 20yos to saudi princes.
mircea_popescu: sadly, the chinese are too smart to take them. that'd have been the historical way out of this predicament, and how venice survived eg, charles.
mircea_popescu: or for that matter what sustained the jews through their 5k years. no, it wasn't "the sense of humor", LEL! no, it wasn't "the covenant"
mircea_popescu: it was that rachel wouldn't shut up and wouldn't stop riding the cock.
mircea_popescu: at which juncture, mp warmly recommends
asciilifeform: china is 'black box' -- i for instance have genuinely nfi whether they nixed their equiv. of 'elbrus', or merely hid it. (and i know of nobody showing any symptom of publicly having half a clue re subj)
deedbot: << Qntra - Amid Increased Leftist Violence In US, Local Resistance Leader Disappears In Missouri
mircea_popescu: dat moment when one asks for a timestamp and it comes out 13:37
mircea_popescu: so apparently we've progressed from imaginary lag-on-demand to simply disconnecting every coupla hours or so.
mod6: :<
mircea_popescu: how's tricks mod6
mod6: pretty good!
mod6: We've moved into the testing phase of the changes for V. So that's nice.
mod6: I talked to my tailor today about getting some linen suits made for this upcoming summer. Guy was shocked.
mod6: He said that it's very nice to hear someone wants one, he says that almost no-one even thinks about them or wants them. Which he thinks is crazy too, since it's so HUMID in the summer.
mod6: Last summer I thought I would boil a few days with wool. So, high time to get something ligher. :]
mircea_popescu: linen is a pretty cool fabric altogether.
mod6: Yah, looking forward to that.
