diana_coman: meanwhile the sock fell off the internets and the bike moved or something so almost none of the links in there work anymore
BingoBoingo: Meanwhile in Qntraments
feedbot: << Qntra -- Canada Begins Process Of Extraditing Abducted Huawei CFO To US
mircea_popescu: diana_coman isn't it how it always goes... most of the "internet population" populating (by its own lights) the place sports a life expectancy insufficient to justify the genetic outlay of the average mouse.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo o ya, empire lost monetary control decade+ ago.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: We've flirted with that fact in the logs, and the story making the headline isn't earth shattering news, but... Gotta have something to link for that fact
mircea_popescu: keksy comment, too.
BingoBoingo: That there are more C-notes than singles and almost all of them are abroad
mircea_popescu: i meant on qntra.
BingoBoingo: Well sure
BingoBoingo: Jamie Dimon's master plan
mircea_popescu: "i haven't been doing my reading back in 2013-2014. this totally means the shit i don't understand in 2019 is fascinating to everyone else and important, rite guise ?!"
BingoBoingo: ">USG uses printed money to dump Bitcoin" never mind that does the other thing
mircea_popescu will now write moar scandalous things, since the "civil society" choked long ago, and on "socks and cocks!!!" of all things.
BingoBoingo: Don't forget the cock socks which they ignored in 2015 when the fork wars were derping up
asciilifeform: i suppose loch ness monster also choked (perhaps on cock?) long ago, and hence absent..
BingoBoingo: I though Nessie died from anti-freeze poisoning because British cars leave piss puddles like puppies
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform point being, if "the powers that be" burn their powder on little things, what will they do when teh big guns come out.
asciilifeform: << possibly i'm thick, but i dunget why beijing doesn't catch a coupla dozen usg daughters and send'em to washington 1 finger at a time until the matter's resolved.

mircea_popescu: hence the "HOW DO YOU LIKE ME NOW!!!!" meme
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform because ~nobody wants to be stuck with the cost of "administering" the shithole.
BingoBoingo: Well so far they have been catching a lot more Canadian drug traffickers this year
mircea_popescu: also i suspect BingoBoingo has it, the chinese have no notion of individual.
asciilifeform: 'cockroach civilization' eh
BingoBoingo: Well they have the socia credit thing which acknowledges that there are enumerable bipedal units, but... how do you do soft power from such a position? You start enforcing against once tolerated foreign nuissances until the white worms stop being so acutely pestillential
asciilifeform: imho the correct pill was to take e.g. intel ceo and coupla board members to beijing and publicly ling chi.
asciilifeform: but possibly i'm thick.
asciilifeform: ( the 48-cut variant of ling chi. 1 cut per day of white devil intransigence . )
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: You are thinking mohs surgery. Start thinking Chinese medicine instead.
asciilifeform: ling chi is best chinese medicine.
BingoBoingo: There's ritual involved. Can't start cutting right away.
asciilifeform: ( 'human pig'(tm)(r) close runner-up )
BingoBoingo: Gotta manage spirits first
asciilifeform: << not any kind of news, neh, >>

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well, for instance -- a clear display of usgistani impotence could perhaps put an end to the paper charade.
mircea_popescu: the chinese are the world's largest holders.
mircea_popescu: basically, the difference between you asciilifeform and chinese bureaucracy is that you're psychologically very dependent on teh usg.
mircea_popescu: to you, showing them their place, putting mommy naked on her knees, carries a very high subjective value.
mircea_popescu: to the chinese... meh.
feedbot: << Trilema -- Sieg heil...
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i admit, mine is entirely a 'exterminate the brutes' pov
mircea_popescu: well, it is conceivable the little yellow men have other priorities.
asciilifeform: entirely other, and much above my paygrade to say what
mircea_popescu: mice similarly don't seek out teh elephant nests of do bloody murder.
mircea_popescu: the one important point, to my eyes, is that they don't seem to have much of the "face" problem. somehow. thirty years ago the whole fucking country'd have been up in arms, "give back our cunt!!!"
mircea_popescu: usg ~still~ has issues in pakistan over that doctor chick.
asciilifeform: this is much in line with historic asian pov tho. 'there's $maxint of us, what's 1 less'
mircea_popescu: how the hell sinocommie party manages to have such excellent control is a mystery, but really, brejnev had less smooth a reigh,
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform absolutely not at all, lotta problems historically with kidnapped cunt & associated "losing face"
asciilifeform: with chinese ? i guess i missed
mircea_popescu: yeah.
asciilifeform: Fotze Konzentrationslager << a+++
asciilifeform: just when i thought the genre died with usenet, mircea_popescu resurrects!
mircea_popescu: ehehe
mircea_popescu: i think it's one of the better pieces ever penned in the style ; feel free to put up some of your usenet selections, i'm curious.
feedbot: << Qntra -- Forbes Catches The RIPple Scam Six Years Later
BingoBoingo: ^ In the news of the slow
mircea_popescu: ethereum next, then mit, then "mission district", then ...
BingoBoingo: They might even catch up to 2019 by 2034
mircea_popescu: go a-team!
mircea_popescu: diana_coman btw, can i get you to "update posts set post_content = REPLACE(post_content, '', '');" ?
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in wanna-be half-republics,
feedbot: << Bingology - BingoBoingo's Blog -- Prototype Pizarro Marketing Payloads
feedbot: << mod6's Blog -- A Cuntoo Adventure Part Two
mircea_popescu: mod6 well done on fixing it! and yes it makes sense, first sata is sda, 2nd is sdb and so following.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo you're polishing the wrong end of the spear. with 0 experience it's impossible to meaningfully improve this "payload". make two even if they're made throwing darts ; a/b rtest them ; pick one, make a.1 / a.2 in response whichever you picked, test those, and so following.
mircea_popescu: it's an ~empirical~ process ; !!!!NOT!!! a theoretical one.
mircea_popescu: in fact -- almost NOTHING is EVER a theoretical process.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> in fact -- almost NOTHING is EVER a theoretical process. << I'm going to decorate with this point so it gets through the skull case
