diana_coman: - thanks; re that hook, I haven't seen it really and I doubt it exists as such; thinking of it, it's more likely to be something of a side effect again of how the water plane, terrain and character sprite interact; for the time being I'll let it be as it doesn't seem a high priority really.
ossabot: Logged on 2020-02-06 19:19:05 mircea_popescu: diana_coman, tbh, the reflection looks pretty cool ; there's prolly a hook there to specify "no reflection past heightmap" or somesuch to get rid of the ultramarine legs
mircea_popescu: i guess this over-optimistic "people are reasonable" tack on my part betrays innocence and little more.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in "oh, it's easy, whatever it might be, adulthood, culture, public speaking, opening a can of tuna. JUST COLOR BY THE NUMBERS!!!" postcards from ustardia :
mircea_popescu: "Trumpeter and composer Avishai Cohen’s sophomore release on ECM is a reflective journey that grapples with the existential crises facing the world today. At barely 38 minutes, the album’s five tracks present a delicate interplay between temporal precision and intuitive improvisation. Cohen deftly utilizes drummer Nasheet Waits, pianist Yonathan Avishai and bassist Barak Mori to communicate the raw emotions of his musi
mircea_popescu: c. A somber vibe and universal consciousness are the common threads that tie each piece together"
mircea_popescu: there's self-evidently no reason such a thing as an alleged Matt Micucci should exist, and definitely no good cause for it and similar nothings to aggregate, and for the resulting sadness to be labelled anyway other than "garbage".
mircea_popescu: da fuck is a "JazzIz" anyways.
BingoBoingo: Whatever it might be, it sounds inclusive
mircea_popescu: incidentally BingoBoingo do you recall wtf it was, some derpy website for copy/paste "software" or somesuch, that proudly announced how it's for professional experts by professional experts WITH OVER ONE YEAR OF COMBINED EXPERIENCE ?
BingoBoingo: Off the top of my head, I do not though it sounds incredibly familiar.
mircea_popescu: and i ask because... wtf, fucking ridoinculous nonsense! Look for them online, it's an ad at the top (for, "Jazziz Magazine - Check Out Our New Low Price"), one on the side (this one for "", "JAZZIZ “Redemption”" by JAZZIZ " -- yes, including the BROKEN crapsoft quotes -- "Millions of unique stickers ready for laptops, water bottles, helmets, and more. Get up to 50% off. Glossy, matte, and
mircea_popescu: transparent in various sizes." cuz totally, that's what I'll do with a... water bottle.).
mircea_popescu: And then, of course, the first hit, JAZZIZ Magazine [Search domain] "For more than three decades, JAZZIZ Magazine has been covering the music scene, documenting innovations, charting industry trends and following the artists whose lives so colorfully inform our own. The award-winning JAZZIZ Magazine is your one-stop destination for entertainment in

mircea_popescu: the music world."
mircea_popescu: what the FUCK, jazz in the past three decades ? this is like mc cain's love of his life (for the past 9 months). dude's been dead for a year.
mircea_popescu: << and then the objectionable jewtard himself. how fucking hard could you even be trying, judas fucking christ, with the faux beard and everything, they don't know what a cabotine is in the new york jewish community ?
BingoBoingo: The Jazz zombie today's a sort of extension of the higher ed bubble's "follow your passions" derpery.
mircea_popescu: just about etsy for well to do jewbois, aha.
mircea_popescu: fucking intolerable. this, and the pretense 2010s "conaisseur of foods" revival, with their vomit of wine and cheese and whatnot.
BingoBoingo: Yeah, community colleges, US military bands, etc do these tours telling kids there are careers in the field of making noise in "cafes"
mircea_popescu: cigars suffered some under the onslaught as well.
mircea_popescu: and, of course, bdsm. and all combinations -- including the typical 50yo moron with a "slave" who's a 20something female doing "rituals", such as inane bullshit where she "swallows the ashes". and so on in this theatrically tedious vein.
mircea_popescu: i dunno who the fuck it's supposed to even fool ; then again, apparently the last people to have ever had any money, taste, sense or experience died with the millenium. so i guess the fucktards impress each other. it's gotta be, because otherwise the insanity is inexplicable enough -- it's fucking evident they don't ENJOY any of it, protestations to the contrary notwithstanding (or rather, pleading against their case)
BingoBoingo: I don't know that they even impress each other. Too solipsistic, they seem to just be trying to win tourmament markets that don't even have prizes.
BingoBoingo: Just going through motions for social media.
BingoBoingo: Nevermind Myspace lost all of their shit during one of its zombie reboots, Instagram Immortality!
mircea_popescu: fucking self-falsification, is the infuriating part.
mircea_popescu: by the time the "oh, fu-xi could mean anything, shrimp fucks the cowboy leg is on the menu because literally, our chinese mother tongue does not have any actual meaning" dorks of the future turn their drones to "recreate true europe", it'll be the faux ustaridian "nobody can accuse it of not being europe" ersatz that's all that's left.
mircea_popescu: a beard, "you mean this thing overprocessed to look like groucho marx glued something on ?"
mircea_popescu: yeah bitch, totally, that's exactly what i mean, you waterskyiing with the photographer's girlfriend on your back.
ossabot: Logged on 2017-10-02 15:09:36 mircea_popescu: sadly the story behind that is that denni parkinson was there with HER BOYFRIEND, who's some photog there to shoot some bs about branson's hobby (some kind of new and improved surfing)
mircea_popescu: the pestilence even reached romania ; these fucktards who really have no good cause to survive managed to squeeze a few "OLD STYLE barber shops" in between the slot machine/"sportsbets" nonense and the "fuck my wife, two for one" establishments/courtyards.
mircea_popescu: ah there we go, meanwhile actually found the piece i was looking for. niciodata...

mircea_popescu: in other historical news, the strangled salassie's one helluva sassy.
mircea_popescu: so the italian dorks are playing empire in his ancient land ; dude fancies himself a descendant of the fucking queen of sheeba in a direct line. therefore he issues a proclamation :
mircea_popescu: "If you withhold from your country Ethiopia the death from cough or head-cold of which you would otherwise die, refusing to resist (in your district, in your patrimony, and in your home) our enemy who is coming from a distant country to attack us, and if you persist in not shedding your blood, you will be rebuked for it by your Creator and will be cursed by your offspring. "
mircea_popescu: and further,
mircea_popescu: "Hence, without cooling your heart of accustomed valour, there emerges your decision to fight fiercely, mindful of your history that will last far into the future
mircea_popescu: how not to like him ?!
hanbot_abroad: whoa.
hanbot_abroad: mircea_popescu i guess medical tourism is a main appendage ofze devil then
mircea_popescu: dude's fucking endearing.
hanbot_abroad: did it work out?
BingoBoingo: hanbot_abroad: Some cult formed around a cardboard cutout of him. They smoke weed and listen to Bob Marley.
mircea_popescu: hanbot_abroad, incomprehensibly he got strangled as an 80yo during some famine.
BingoBoingo: That's the whole of the Rasta thing. "An African beat Italy which is totally European. We've won"
hanbot_abroad: oooh right, this guy!
hanbot_abroad: why strangle an 80 year old!
BingoBoingo: hanbot_abroad: Africa
BingoBoingo: Socialists had a coup. The depose 80 year old had health problems as folks his age tend to. Still too much of a perceived threat to their more equal Africa and...
mircea_popescu: survived the italians which are totally european, didn't survive the redditards, which are just as totally european as the redditalians
hanbot_abroad: how bitter can it get...
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, in practice they kinda got defeated in all engagements, just wore down the flimsy italians through sheer numbers. very unlike the boer fucking up the brits right and proper a half century prior.
mircea_popescu: anyway, they rather sound like the serbs ; which would be surprising except of course for the part where they're deeply orthodox. just like the serbs.
BingoBoingo: Kinda the only winning strategy for Africa. Throw bodies at the problem, keep taking losses which are actually a win until the other side exhausts. Solve two problems.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, this'd be a good theory, except of course ethiopia is very small by african standards. about the same population as the region of lazio at the time, like 10mn.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I don't know that absolute or relative bigness is a necessity for exhausting Italians.
mircea_popescu: hm.
BingoBoingo: His stature indeed appears to have supported his high claims of Solomonic descent.
hanbot_abroad: << top shelf withering gaze!

mircea_popescu: hanbot_abroad, that's for sure one of them. however, there was a more recent, not directly bitcoin related, egregious example which literally claimed ONE year.
mircea_popescu: iirc some really idiotic copy/paste construction like "more than {x} years" resulting in "more than 1 year"
