hanbot: meanwhile i accidentally stumbled on TLP's return as it might look through the brainpan of elliot rodgers, oodles of cringe for anyone in need of a little sharpening for the ol' misanthropic awl: http://archive.is/AIaGN
mircea_popescu: ahahaha what the FUCK is that!
hanbot: if we're to believe him, a -~*college teacher*~-
mircea_popescu: they found him dead in a ditch, sewed him back together and ran reanimative storm-powered electricity through the pile ?
hanbot: it's aliveh!!1
mircea_popescu: frankensballas.
asciilifeform: waiwaat wat's this to do with tlp
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform some superficial formal similarity i guess ?
asciilifeform: aa i misread.
asciilifeform back to bed
asciilifeform: hanbot: that d00d is a riot. having trouble dispatching himself, in ameristan, where 300buxorz buys you a 'mossberg'
asciilifeform: ( in the coupla states where it doesn't -- 10bux still buys you a box of shells, and another 10 -- iron pipe at the 'home despot' and old nail... )
asciilifeform: 5bux at toy store buys you a 'oh noez he was armed!11' and a phree police firing squad, for the pathological coward. etc
BingoBoingo: douchebag: That is the case. The shares trade on the market so the price can move. Style guide is here: http://trilema.com/2015/lacessiveram-editor/
mircea_popescu: !!rate douchebag -1 as it turns out, the more elaborate effort one puts into distinguishing gold from sand, the more elaborately sandy sand the one ends up with. gold is irrespectively evident on the first pass.

a111: Logged on 2018-06-17 00:25 lobbes: douchebag: at least keep reading the logs. I wager that if you do, within 5 years time you may start seeing the value of building reputation with the world's only sovereign
lobbes: Sure. Best case as I see it is: mebbe d00d reads in silence for couple years, then, once not-20-years-old and able to grok, comes back and does productive things. Probably won't happen, but ya never know.
mircea_popescu: this or any other,\
mircea_popescu: at issue isn't whether yes-or-no, but whether specific-identity-or-not-particularily, see ? even if what you describe happens, the item coming back won't meaningfully be douchebag.
lobbes: Hm, this makes sense. 20 yo lobbes was not in any sense the lobbes of today
mircea_popescu: moreover, an attempted nominal continuity with your 20yo self would rather hinder you today.
mircea_popescu: so... win-win, as they say.

mircea_popescu: maybe he starts a church.
mircea_popescu: anyway, nfi why thailand is famous for its ladyboys. they're a minority there, while united states consists of nothing but.
hanbot: afaik because in thailand the ladyboys work at it, diligently and purposefully. where as Joe vonCan'tStackIt here prolly goes around in lumberjack plaids religiously checking the "M" box
mircea_popescu: i suppose so.

douchebag: mircea_popescu: I just got back, what was the exact reason I was negrated?
BingoBoingo: In other news, Mexico whooped Germany and the few Brazillians here are substantially louder and more excited than the Uruguayos were
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i can't imagine why, they 1-1'd with switzerland.
BingoBoingo: Before the game tied, Brazil scored their goal. For that on goal about a theird of the way into game time the handful of Brazillians for more audible for more time.
BingoBoingo: I am guessing they assumed more would follow?
mircea_popescu: i guess so huh.
BingoBoingo: But, I can't be arsed to watch anything other than the last 10 minutes of the games as they happen. I hear what I hear.
BingoBoingo: Colombia plays tomorrow, but thus far Uruguay is the only South American team with a win.
mircea_popescu: it's a terrible spectator sport.
mircea_popescu: it happened to be on screen @whorehouse earlier, but otherwise...
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: here's where i admit that i also can't bring self to watch 1st 10. or for that matter, the in-between
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-17#1826240 << oh hey finally drummed out
a111: Logged on 2018-06-17 18:54 douchebag: mircea_popescu: I just got back, what was the exact reason I was negrated?
mircea_popescu: up there with golf, or male tenis i guess. who the fruck would want to ~watch~ this
BingoBoingo: Absolutely awful. If I make it to my 70's I want to retire then in a baseball Latino country.
asciilifeform was off in the sunlit world, picking cherries with relatives

BingoBoingo: I might watch all of Wednesday's midday Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia game, because everything else will be closed.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: That's why it is 'the zone' he is packed and not loose
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i'll even admit that it could be made an interesting sport, if, let's say, they armed the saudis with scimitars, the egyptians -- with that sickle thing; etc
asciilifeform: but as it is i can't summon any interest
mircea_popescu: iirc saudis have one of the worst teams in the world.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> iirc saudis have one of the worst teams in the world. << This is the interest.
BingoBoingo: I want to watch a double digit blowout
mircea_popescu: i somehow doubt it.
BingoBoingo: It'll probably still be a bore, but I will have seen the exception to 1-1 ties that proves the sport is a bore
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-17#1826235 << the thai, if one were to believe them, insist 'they're all cambodians'

BingoBoingo: Argentina drew to Iceland, Spain drew to Portual... Russia put up five points against the Saudis... If Uruguay can't break 12 against they Saudis what is they world coming to.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform khmere, whatever.
mircea_popescu: who even knows, i can't distinguish the angled eyed.

deedbot: http://blog.esthlos.com/fuckgoats-some-thoughts-and-minimal-tests/ << esthlos - FUCKGOATS: Some Thoughts and Minimal Tests
mircea_popescu: esthlos the atempt to weave practical thought and ideology isn't even fruitless ; i believe the symmetry described is truthful and informative.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, it's false to claim violence is usually the driver of submission. the slave's need to submit, or more specifically https://78.media.tumblr.com/d926fbf7f8b20c715946d9477fbbc555/tumblr_p85oiw4jb91x1qecto1_1280.jpg ; the slave's drastic incapacity, inadequacy and insufficiency are the driver.
mircea_popescu: nobody trusts implicitly "or else". idiots trust implicitly because they objectively lack the capacity for anything else, so it's a strict "either trust implicitly or not at all" dilemma they face.
mircea_popescu: nobody buys an ipad because "otherwise they'll get shot by LAPD". they buy the ipad because "i am so fucking stupid, i literally can't tell the difference between this piece of shit and a working programmable machine".
mircea_popescu: in this context, "if you're going to trust implicitly, either trust the republic or it's the lime pits for you" is a direct continuation of "if you're going to believe in god, you'd better fucking believe i am that god", ie some minimal mental hygiene.
esthlos: aha. so no ultimate threat of violence is needed in slave mind; the knowledge of inadequacy is enough to drive the submission? and then violence works to direct the submission?
