BingoBoingo: Meanwhile, found in the mines:
mod6: thanks mircea_popescu!
mircea_popescu: ty diana_coman !
BingoBoingo: In local developments the growshop across the street which made a big point of paying and having a booth at the expocannabis appears to either be shuttering or moving. Conference monkeying for the win!
mircea_popescu: maybe it's moving to be closer to the conference grounds.
mircea_popescu: for child porn completitude,
mircea_popescu: (you will indulge me in observing that forcing 13yo girlies one's fixated on to [][read certain things] is not substantially different from forcing them to do certain things ; especially if the fixation has entirely nothing to do with the particular little girl in question, but stems from more general
mircea_popescu: considerations.)
asciilifeform: re balls,
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: replied
BingoBoingo: He's got balls attached. Their just dormant.
mircea_popescu: #metoo lol
asciilifeform: rly the old chinese system was moar honest, where they took their balls off right off the bat, when they signed up to serve the reich, and put in a jar, 'proof of work'
mircea_popescu: quite, yes.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: replied^2.
mircea_popescu: lotta things chinese did lot more honest. the black lotus retirement plan way the fuck more effectual, secure, reliable AND PLEASANT than ; not to mention the chinese didn't give it to children.
asciilifeform: << oblig blacklotus
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Replied again, but it isn't the game engines killing anything. It's that every "federation" and "governing body" that's captured competitive pursuits is femstate uterine scar tissue.
BingoBoingo: Ever since Madame Kenesaw Mountain Landis took the business out of baseball, its been downhill everywhere. Olympic fappery is simply toxic.
asciilifeform: for their part, the dope makers also drop the ball : it's perfectly possible to make a usable dope that does its thing and breaks down into unremarkables; the assassination poisons people had the right idea in the 1920s
mircea_popescu: this kipling piece's quite good!
asciilifeform: ikr
asciilifeform: 1 of his best, imho
mircea_popescu: incidentally, now that they've made pot "legal", the chandoo-khanas where the niggers go when ?
mircea_popescu: evidently best way out for most of extant dreamers, PLUS IT WOULD SUPPORT THE TAX REVENUE!!!1
mircea_popescu: wouldn't it be ironic if that's the future, chinese-sponsored usg-"law"-immune extrateritorial teahouses in every county.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: today. ( but naturally not classic opium, given as it cannot be patented, but usg.strange, and 'prescription' )
mircea_popescu: not bad.
mircea_popescu: evidently our colonial experiment failed. depopulation, and recolonization manifestly necessary.
asciilifeform: ( iirc we had thread, re how ~100% of usg.psychopharma 100y consists of 'let's reimplement 2000 y.o. plant dopes in patentable form' )
mircea_popescu: add a methyl, take a methyl, it's all in good fun.
asciilifeform: and BingoBoingo has a reportage re how double-digit % of usa proles are hooked on various synthetic opium
asciilifeform did depressing tour of duty in 'add a methyl, take a methyl' for the reich, but fortunately on the theoretical end, not the eating end
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> incidentally, now that they've made pot "legal", the chandoo-khanas where the niggers go when ? << They've had theirs. The next step is something similar for the dreamers though the dreamers seem to be breaking towards approximating the same in their own squalor holes.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the 'dreamers' have been living in their ganja dens since '60s, what
asciilifeform: srsly asciilifeform lives in a nowhere uni town, and there are no fewer than 4 shops on 1 street selling hooka, hoses, etc
mircea_popescu: problem with pot is that it doesn't kill them nearly fast enough.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: The sixties didn't have contemporary ganja nor the contemporary mass of dreamers, though the baby boomer generation was pretty dreamer fucked
asciilifeform: it's the evening's entertainment for these folx. plug in the hoses, fire up the coals, turn on tv for background
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> problem with pot is that it doesn't kill them nearly fast enough. << True
asciilifeform: the opium was banned specifically cuz kills the 'dreamer' too quickly. they wanted live konsoomer / mortgage monkey gotta live at least his 30y of mortgage etc
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> it's the evening's entertainment for these folx. plug in the hoses, fire up the coals, turn on tv for background << The hookah/hose thing is a poor delivery device for pot. mircea_popescu's centerpiece that shoots deep into the lungs is the tool for pot. The hookah's more of a high margin impulse purchase trap that doesn't draw the shops aggro like most consumer US stuff is.
mircea_popescu: well, some people like the eastern tobacco.
BingoBoingo: Well, this is the US
mircea_popescu found a one inch cut of vanilla bean in his UAE-made "best shisha tobacco in the world". it tasted as fresh and great as one from here, even joked with the girls, "full circle for this guy"
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: my (admittedly nonexpert) understanding is that hooka is used for what in asciilifeform's alcoholic orcistan is referred to as 'kvasing', i.e. slow intake over whole day/night
asciilifeform: rather than 1shot brain blow
mircea_popescu: very far cry from the "only I wish
mircea_popescu: Tsin-ling wouldnÂ’t put bran into the Black Smoke."
BingoBoingo: Eastern tobacco involves ritual and some trivial amount of work. Most US hookah purchases I've seen end up on a shelf as another piece of kitsch after just a few uses.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: hooka worx best with ~servant~ who fills/empties, i suspect
BingoBoingo: Another thing the US is short of
mircea_popescu: topless, chimed, it's a fine luxury item.
asciilifeform: it is lulzy, in this here shithole they banned 'smoke in restaurant'. but folx still want hooka. so effect was, the hooka dens no longer serve food, nao only smoke
asciilifeform: you walk in, and smoke thick enuff to walk on
asciilifeform: folx on cushions, brains liquifying, quite kiplingesque picture aside from the lappies/pnojes
asciilifeform: ( Officially , in the hookas, only tobacco + various flavour crud. but possibly on west coast, also ganja )
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: you won't believe what else UAE-made : (if the crate is to be believed) -- that xray film.
mircea_popescu: i'll believe. more sense than qatar, for sure.
asciilifeform: i still have difficulty swallowing that they can make anyffin moar complicated than camel saddle.
asciilifeform: ( supposedly even scimitar for beheading, is suffering shortages, the last troo smiths died )
BingoBoingo: Well, ecuador is allegedly running out of the people who can make hats for mircea_popescu. This is a problem in every field.
