BingoBoingo: hanbot: There's a team with one profoundly fat person working deep in the hot aisle putting filling up a rack. The hamplanet's moving about makes keeping a terminal plugged into the machine a precarious proposition. Will dive again later.
asciilifeform: lolwaat
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: he's the size of a hippo ? why would this block work in the rack?!
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Roughly the size. It blocks setting up the keyboard and monitor for an extended period of time without the risk of his ass propelling the setup into the rack because he imagines he can move like a dainty princess.
BingoBoingo: His side of whatever he's contributing to their build is in the hot aisle. But he's ~350 pounds, so he can only stand to be in the hot aisle ~90 seconds at a time. That's a lot of purposeless movement I would rather not deal with when the hippo workday has to end sometime.
BingoBoingo: In other stuff, apparently Pat Buchanan is still alive and kicking
asciilifeform: so is zhirinovsky, lol

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: imho pretty sad , actually : the (afaik) last 100% mcd-free reservation on hemisphere, totters.

asciilifeform: i have nfi how anyone can escape the conclusion that 'western civilization' of the past-50y model is in any way diff in effect than eating pb paint chips.
BingoBoingo: Stockholm syndrome is a thing
asciilifeform: soon enuff , when no moar castros, those bananistani will be living in mortgaged cardboard, eating mcd, and watching 'netflix', shitting out 'blogs' fulla malapropisms , an' ~nobody will remember any other time.
BingoBoingo: Well, Maduro's folk have mcd, netflix, and Pnohes
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: as i understand, maduro is on the chopping block; and i dun think these are unrelated
asciilifeform: e.g. how come erry man of fighting age in vz aint on the boarder, pumping lead into the 'humanitarian convoy', manning ack-ack batteries, etc ?
asciilifeform: *the border
asciilifeform: for contrast -- recall how 'bay of pigs' went.
asciilifeform: or why, for that matter, not stormed pantsuit 'parliament' and dragged guiado out by the heels to the public stake ?
BingoBoingo: Well, border closed. Convoy torched by "protesters" on Colombian side
