mircea_popescu: ah, nm, it was apparently in http://trilema.com/2016/cia-factbook-the-most-serene-republic/#footnote_2_68314
mircea_popescu: anyway, i had no idea anyone actually read bobbitt. for the sake of likbezing -- the last gasp of the western academic tradition (rip 1999, "bologna declaration") was this pile of cvasi-blog publications, trying to bring together what (scant) was left of scholarly knowledge and the limited forms of public consumption still vaguely functional. they're rather immediately evident for their structure, reference tree, even the tit
mircea_popescu: ular conventions ("simple english" titles that admit a direct and somewhat meaningful interpretation while also referencing literary cannon, generally layeredly [there's both a modern poem as well as an item of that name in the instant case]), but not universally terrible.
mircea_popescu: the most positive light to shine upon political hacks such as curtis yarvin would be that they "continue" this decay.
mircea_popescu: the whole thing is basically "hey, middle earth worked for the oxford gang, nothing else worked in the post-war period, might as well apply it. what choice do we have ?"
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-02#1762219 << his obvious counter is thart it's insane to arrange things such that progeny would come -ev.
a111: Logged on 2018-01-02 04:08 ben_vulpes: why is it insane to not waste the resources on the quite likely -ev project of progeny?
mircea_popescu: (this is mostly needed for the illusion of the female state to be maintained -- you can bet your sweet ass, literally speaking, that if there's money to be made in childbearing there's no "right of choice", nor does "no means yes, yes means yes, anal means we'll burn you at the stake" need any stating for how obvious it is)
ben_vulpes: tangentially related, i was browsing the pantsuit history of victory in eradication of child labor just last night!
ben_vulpes: but afaik you are correct in that the formulation hasta be "if you can't raise them as a +ev proposition, you didn't have any business doing it in the first place" and just like everything else of +/- ev in this world, there is only one way to know if you can pull it off
mircea_popescu: ahaha child labour was erradicated ?
mircea_popescu: when the fuck did that happen. or rather, WHERE ? same alt-universe where "isis was defeated ; war in afghanistan won ; war on drugs victories" etcetera i expect ?
mircea_popescu: for the record -- it's deeply idiotic to try and prevent children from working. about as stupid as trying to prevent them from fucking adults, actually.
mircea_popescu: human culture is entirely dependent on these transmission processes, if you don't work & fuck the kids they'll exterminate you when they come of age, and for the proper reason : you're little more than a bug to them.
ben_vulpes: soi-disant victory i shoulda said
ben_vulpes: because "not done in usa, and we don't shop at target because child slavery!"
ben_vulpes: this is victory, ysee
mircea_popescu: of course it's done in usa, are you kidding me ?

mircea_popescu: o wait, alabama not in usatoday, i forgot a little.
mircea_popescu: good thing same exact thing's not entirely just as true in southern cali or the outskirts of seattle then.
ben_vulpes: look i'm not saying that this is so, merely that it is claimed to be so.
ben_vulpes: what you think i don't shop at target because some confusion of hairshirt ethics and economics? no, they sell plastic trash, that's why i don't.
mircea_popescu: i thjought white guys shop at the gap

mircea_popescu: btw, shouldn't chocolate be illegal in the us ?
mircea_popescu: it's kinda like a drug...
ben_vulpes: no need, real chocolate is prohibitively expensive for more folks than cocaine

mircea_popescu: "what do you mean you're not hungry, and even if you were you wouldn't eat the shit we peddle ?!? here, have a bowl!"
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes ftr most chocolate i eat has no milk in it. amargo, it's a thing.
ben_vulpes: all cocoa solids or what all is in it
mircea_popescu: basically you use cocoa butter instead of milk fat for emulsification
mircea_popescu: anyway, hershey, nestle and the rest of the scum have been lobbying to be permitted to replace the milk fat with margerine for what, decades now.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: how does that work ?
mircea_popescu: "different skillsets" are needed for either approach, which is a polite way of saying that your doods have no ballsacs.

BingoBoingo: Un poquito relatit... Many of the streets here are named after dates on the calendar. Routinely the dates mark military victories against the empires won by anywhere from a dozen to three dozen men and their assembled serfs
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo and which as a general rule were no kiond of victories.

mircea_popescu: eg, argentina celebrates the day of its defeat in the faulklands as "victory over whatever" day.
mircea_popescu: i've no doubt soon the day the ocean ate their sub "manned by very competent idiots in our own estimation" will get similar treatment, "day of victory over the marine element"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the products of modern woman can not plug anything, because "what if there's a better use of their priceless person later on"

asciilifeform: 'it takes a brave man to be a coward in red army' (tm)(r)
mircea_popescu: but meanwhile the secretions got thicker and stickier.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i have no doubt that red army is exactly what happened to the jews in warsaw.
asciilifeform: at which end
mircea_popescu: they -- more advanced on path to ustardianism than cossacks.
mircea_popescu: so no jew army resulted, just pile of bodies.
mircea_popescu: similarily if you went with machine guns into campus of your choice, the output will be pile of bodies, not red army.
mircea_popescu: need a certain sort of rural for that to work, for the exact reason that "used to be easier when all it took was water which could be applied at birth."
mircea_popescu: ie, no dumb cunt had the opportunity to tell rando mirvnik that "you baby are precious and bla bla bla".
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu has a quite selective reading of the warsaw incident. 1000+ of the warsaw pile -- were german
mircea_popescu: the заградотряд process doth not promise 0 losses among the guards ; merely ~manageable~ (as opposed to womanageable) losses.

mircea_popescu: not like all the men were away threshing in lusitania.
asciilifeform: it was a remainder from the j00z not yet nailed elsewhere
mircea_popescu: that's too meta for this conversation.
asciilifeform: that's the key, them folx were never 'complete country'
mircea_popescu: you confuse country and state.
mircea_popescu: the jews weren't a state ; but very much country.
mircea_popescu: much like the aztecs were a complete country when the spanish state showed up.
asciilifeform: evidently not complete
mircea_popescu: that's not how that works.
asciilifeform: just as mouse without white cells ain't complete mouse.
mircea_popescu: you being lazy doesn't mean "evidently i'm not complete body"
asciilifeform: if so lazy that won't bother to 'dip them' -- then yes, not complete
mircea_popescu: not true.
mircea_popescu: this is tulpa talk, no more,.
asciilifeform: i had nfi this was controversial. folx 'so lazy' that won't feed selves -- end up today typically in nuthouse
mircea_popescu: physiology is no criteria upon anatomy. that your arm "dun work" especially in the "as well as neighbour's" flavour is very strictly no proof of "broken arm".

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform just about.
mircea_popescu: so now to answer the orig. question : this miner from the french german lands was no particular religious fellow. his wife however -- was.
mircea_popescu: so, yes. i can very much picture rockefeller kids named whateverjin, but in the sense meaningful cca 1817 rather than in the 2017 sense.

asciilifeform: buried under ice in antarctica ?
mircea_popescu: consider one point -- russians, romanians, germans all went "la america" in the 1800s. the russians and germans -- stayed. the romanians -- returned.
mircea_popescu: i will readily grant that the "russians" ~only stayed because actually, they were jews.
asciilifeform: i have nfi why returned
asciilifeform: and why stayed
mircea_popescu: the sad counter to thyis is to observe that the actual russians -- too dumb to even go.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i'm proposing a heuristic here, no moar.
mircea_popescu: the ~other~ available heuristic, likely weaker but reaching further into the past, is to observe that the moor ~strangles~ desdemona, doesn't raise her princess little venetian-aspirant daugthers.
asciilifeform: the traditional picture is that folx went for land. and it ain't as if you can bring it back to old europistan.
asciilifeform: gold , yes, can bring ( tho witness what happened when spain brought. ) land - nope
mircea_popescu: but does land come with women ? is this a construct, landwomen, upon which to find a place for yourself ? or does land come without anything or anymore, and is woman another sort of cow for you to work upon it ?
asciilifeform: i'ma guess that in mircea_popescu cosmography , well-oiled, early rome was sabine-powered; later - 'cow'-powered ?
mircea_popescu: because that's the fundamental difference across the northern ocean -- left, landwoman, right, cowoman.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the greek world was mostly "land, cowoman separate". the early roman world similarily, but consider : the roman law knew two (principal, we'll omit the half dozen or so special, patrician only, priesthood styles) kinds of marriage :
mircea_popescu: in the hand, and out of the hand.
asciilifeform: aha i recall this
mircea_popescu: marrying into the hand of the husband signified that the woman became his property, like any other slave (with some exceptions, such as can't be given in lieu of the damage like common slave), and was achieved through continuous cohabitation (one year with no break longer than two days)
mircea_popescu: out of the hand signified that the woman remained (no dude, no fucking free agent women, wtf is this) the property of her father.
mircea_popescu: there were some special rituals for this.
mircea_popescu: now, which was prevalent in antiquity and decayed over time, and which grew over time and was prevalent by the late republic ?
asciilifeform: not mega-prize puzzle, is it
mircea_popescu: so then. as the demographic pressure increases, the conceptualization (the MALE conceptualization, as the only kind there is) of the environment switches from land, cowoman separate to landwoman.
mircea_popescu: the latter is also known as "how cucks see the world"
mircea_popescu: consider this major point : in ancient greece, people were depicted with small penii ; large ones were considered bestial, comedic and insulting.
mircea_popescu: today -- opposite.
mircea_popescu: do you see the logic of "well -- if landwoman better perform, lest it finds a better performer ?", aka trilema's "wtf, ~I~ should work to entertain the slaves ?!"
mircea_popescu: and let's breadcrumb http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-20#1571682 as it's quite apropos.

mircea_popescu: (the matter is often specifically lampshaded -- yes the lady owns the land, but watch de funes interact with her in, say, hibernatus. yes the accountant is there for HER to sign the expense sheets, but "ou, selon vous, est votre grand pere!!!11")
asciilifeform has nfi whether claim is factual
asciilifeform: re 'rowhammer', for some reason when i first found out about it, the immediate picture was ye olde legend re how zeks supposedly at least once overturned a train, from the inside, in a stolypin car , 'let's all heave-left' then 'right' etc
asciilifeform: it isn't a physical impossibility, petrol trucks have overturned from 'slosh' effect
asciilifeform: and ditto sailing ships in 18th c
mircea_popescu: very much physical impossibility.
mircea_popescu: petrol trucks have whiplash, mansacks do not.
asciilifeform: and romans broke cadence on a bridge, why exactly
mircea_popescu: if you study the dynamic equilibrium of liquid you notice first off that most kinetic energy is transferred to wobbly vessel at the peak ends not at the center of movement, and by the fringe liquid not the central mass
mircea_popescu: clip those, you lose disproportionately in the effect.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that bridge was marginal ; train car is not marginal.
asciilifeform: would depend on the car, neh
asciilifeform: if it's already resonant -- can pump
asciilifeform: like child's swing.
mircea_popescu: no, because if train car was as marginal as bridge, you couldn't drive it with fucking grain.
asciilifeform: consider the infamous 'galloping gertie'
mircea_popescu: ie, one comes "not from a good life" unlike the other, so higher de facto standard baked in
asciilifeform: train car is built to resist noncoherent bumps. not idjits pumping its resonance.
asciilifeform: ( and it is build nonresonant at the rail sleeper 'freq'. not arbitrary. )
mircea_popescu: nah. train car that doesn't have major safety factor over resonance is taken out within first 10 miles.
mircea_popescu: bridge that doesnt -- can sit undisturbed for century.
asciilifeform: train that doesn't -- can also work undisturbed for century
mircea_popescu: moreover, resonance is not exactly the problem here. whiplash, slightly different item
asciilifeform: whiplash problem in petrol truck yea
asciilifeform: in train, story went -- pumping.
mircea_popescu does not believe.
asciilifeform: i dun fully buy it, but unlike mircea_popescu would not categorically rule out.
asciilifeform: orc tech does 'wonders'.
mircea_popescu: i suppose they could have had a shitty curve for instance, train went off track half the time anyway, zek thought "button -- connected!"
asciilifeform: for completeness i'll mention the denoument:
asciilifeform: joke was on the zeks
asciilifeform: in classical (stalin) su, the iron law was 'prison transport may not be opened outside of prison or courthouse grounds, for ANY reason'
asciilifeform: not even if on fire and off the rails etc.
mircea_popescu: so they left them i nthere
asciilifeform: so goes the story.
mircea_popescu: seems reasonable. "Dear zek, do your part in building of this great state as we define it".
mircea_popescu: pretty republican outlook.
asciilifeform: hence reprinted here.
asciilifeform: ( much has been written re other aspects, re 'no work, no eat' labour quotas in zekland etc. so i won't repeat. )
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-02#1762517 << this is too juicy to leave alone : you can actually rederive it from the child's experiment where you put a pingpong ball through the ceiling

asciilifeform: ( didja ever do that one ? )
mircea_popescu: "in my country celing already had enough holes"
asciilifeform: great experiment in gym
asciilifeform: you find 3-4 types of ball
asciilifeform: arrange large to small, bottom to top, and drop ( this is the tricky bit )
asciilifeform: momentum transfers...
asciilifeform: can embed in wooden ceiling quite easily.
mircea_popescu spent a while in junior high getting girls to spin legs extended and then pull them in. "o noes!111"
asciilifeform: that was actually part of 'official' curriculum at asciilifeform's school
mircea_popescu: in retrospect the whole fucking point of the "game" is evidently "take girl outside of her own safety margins as she herself imagines them" ie fundamental maturation step.
mircea_popescu: but at the time it was just fun.
asciilifeform: then again we had a 25 y.o. physics d00d . and i'd bet he was eventually sacked
asciilifeform: he had various demos that would show gurlz were bottom-heavy
asciilifeform: at any rate, the 'bulk of the liquid' ~= 'largest ball'
mircea_popescu: ~only 25yo male we had in the crew was ro lit dork, who refused to explain what "oftica" (= tuberculosis, but in ro folklore "disease of unfulfilled love") meant, and when pressed "you'll see in the army".
asciilifeform: lol in english world was called 'pining away'
a111: Logged on 2017-12-29 16:01 asciilifeform: but moar like victorian typhoidal 'nedeflorena' or who was it
mircea_popescu: 50yo women much better at the... roman, shall we call it, approach to education.
mircea_popescu: especially the tiny dop of a woman that took over when he was sacked (ie, next year), and who "ce pizda ma-sii!!!1" then noticing completely frozen/silent bunch of 13yo went "what, you never heard that before ?!"
asciilifeform: чо пиздите lol
mircea_popescu: but talking of whiplash, https://media.8ch.net/file_store/0f9c7cae8d4b5c5891288651deadb8e0fc08abaecc5c92365fdda00b03b5c572.gif
mircea_popescu: anyway, to revisit the upstack problem : the solution to rowhammer, 3.0 as 1.0, is not to "make kernel flush all the time, 50% performance penalty" nor the original "solutions" nor any of that crap.
mircea_popescu: the correct solution is http://trilema.com/2016/please-stop-using-dns-already-and-other-considerations/ and so on, ie -- no multiuser box. yank "ssh", yank the rest of the empire-on-your-box crapola and ignore the "problem" that dun exist.
mircea_popescu: what THEY are trying to solve, "how to perpetuate empire-on-your-box???" is not a problem that needs any solving.
asciilifeform: and if you must build a public toilet ( i.e. box where allcomers get to affect the memory addressing sequence ) build it from sram.
mircea_popescu thoroughly ignored "cloud" since the day it was invented. the fact that they failed to address this for a decade does not somehow enact a special sovereignity for them, and make cloud a thing. it is still not a thing, as it NEVER FUCKING WAS. hurr.
mircea_popescu: and in fucking general -- idiot's failure to register with the republic "for a really long time" doth not somehow enact idiot into anything else, what the everloving fuck.
asciilifeform: item aint strictly about 'clouds' tho, quite broad, includes errything from www browsers with scripting, to , potentially, trb's commandprocessor
mircea_popescu: what next, "african proverb", what is this, the pantsuited hilarity radio show ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes ; just picked a point at the core of the cloud of idiocy.
asciilifeform: i.e. anywhere that an allcomer gets to make the thing branch, or affect an array index
mircea_popescu: absolutely was not proposed that imperial idiocy is now "limited to cloud". no, imperial idiocy is imperial idiocy.
asciilifeform: that particular idiocy isn't even new , existed more or less as-is in 1970s ('timesharing')
mircea_popescu: nah, 1970s timesharing is an outgrowth of "zeks are not persons", was fine.
asciilifeform: the use of dram where you can stolypin it off the rails -- new
asciilifeform: but general presense, not
mircea_popescu: not tenable today because "zek + cellphone" is more like "nsa contractor" than zek
asciilifeform: btw worth revisiting http://btcbase.org/log/2017-08-24#1702815 in re why cache-timingleak cannot actually be fixed on dram
a111: Logged on 2017-08-24 14:41 asciilifeform: ( why to do this ? just as in other cases of 'i can't believe it's not X!', dram is not actually random-access -- all currently sold drams only achieve their rated speed in 'burst mode'; and from that it follows that they are only ever read to fill a cache line; and from this, trivial timing leak etc. and the joys of 'rowhammer', bonus. )
asciilifeform: i.e. the 'R' is a lie
asciilifeform: it ain't a randomaccess device. any moar then cassette.
mircea_popescu: in entirely unrelated news, here's a simple idea on how to leverage computing power to generate "game" content : create a hexagon filled with hexagonal cells ; cut an arbitrary number of partitions to it, present the pieces to human to "solve" the problem.
mircea_popescu: combinatoric explosion -- always on your side. that's fucking how.
asciilifeform: iirc 'panzer general' looked like this
asciilifeform: and buncha others of the period
mircea_popescu: yeah, hex grid was a "strategy" thing for a while
asciilifeform: originally from tabletop
mircea_popescu: funny, nobody to my knowledge leveraged multi-cell plane fills.
mircea_popescu: "if you go into octagon you get X, but in square you get Y".
mircea_popescu: because, i guess, socialist poison, "in all things we do must be one thing where all things are equal!"
asciilifeform pictures a hextetris
mircea_popescu: that was done
asciilifeform: yea gotta be
mircea_popescu: back in dos days was even pentix, if you recall, and then that arbitrary tetris generator in space, you saw it ?
mircea_popescu: where you could actually define your piece sets.
asciilifeform: 4 was really the golden # , pentix pieces have trouble 'sliding past'
asciilifeform: same thing with hexatiled pieces
mircea_popescu: BLOCKOUT! holy shit
mircea_popescu: god the time i spent with that thing...
mircea_popescu: imo still very much playable today, at that.
asciilifeform: aa i played a clone, 'welltris' iirc
mircea_popescu: not sure which is the clone ; but emulated today.
asciilifeform: or hm, not same
asciilifeform: i think 'blockout' also.
asciilifeform: somebody even had a '4d' tetris.
mircea_popescu: not so useful for humans, that, is it
asciilifeform: moar of a 'because we could' than actually-playable, aha
mircea_popescu: well, moar of a "if you can't use time band for signalling you're stuck with a stitched together in-band signalling monstrosity"
asciilifeform: upstack re dram , in particularly in its role as 'cheap simulacrum chocolate made of liquishit' item -- in august asciilifeform exhaustively researched available sram, and found that most of it ALSO does not get anywhere near rated speed except in sequential burst !
asciilifeform: and when you impose the condition that it MUST -- you end up with...
mircea_popescu: shit's hard, what.
asciilifeform: ... same parts as were sold in 1996.
asciilifeform: literally, same items we put in those 486 mobos with user-inserted cache.
asciilifeform: 'hard' is not the word. item could be trivially made in existing 14nm or whatnot
asciilifeform: with current-day densities
asciilifeform: but it ain't. because 'dun help c-machine any'
mircea_popescu: the sram you mean ?
asciilifeform: sane, i.e. random-access , sram.
asciilifeform: no burst nonsense.
mircea_popescu: i guess.
asciilifeform: and in the narrowed set, found that : you can get 7-10ns sram at something like human cost. below : goes up exponentially
asciilifeform: ( and, on top of this, most of the offerings at 'high' end turn out to be 'pseudostatic' , i.e. internally has dram + refresher )

mircea_popescu: did anyone ever write something not-idiotic on that medium idiocy ?
ben_vulpes: look at wannabe-hacker-oriented linux distros like Arch and Gentoo, which refuse to supply an installer and instead require users to retype the source code of an installer script from the manual
ben_vulpes: dude's a wannabe alan kay, writing on a smaller shittier blogspot which is about to implode due to implementing the "three free articles per month" idiocy
ben_vulpes: time for that died ~2014
