mircea_popescu: landau group, pc actually signed off on this idiocy ?
asciilifeform: 'Not every wiretap request is granted. Only 313 federal wiretaps were installed in 2014, far fewer than the number requested, Landau pointed out. Each one costs the federal government about $41,000, most of which is spent on “minimization”—that is, someone to monitor the wiretap and assess its content.' << lulzy: the universal dragnet thing dun count, evidently, as 'wiretap'

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'm approximately as interested in inhabiting a world without landau as you are in inhabiting world without cunt.

phf: asciilifeform: right, i'm not arguing your original statement, just trying to understand this part of thread. if i wanted to grok electrodynamics, can get scan, or easier to just walk to friend and get landau of the shelf. doesn't matter that he has millions of other books, or that there's an archive of book scans somewhere. mp's point seems to be that the activity should be treated as tomb raiding either way, rather then "i have a

asciilifeform: what would, e.g., herr landau, have accomplished, if he had to occupy himself with teaching arithmetic.
asciilifeform: putting footnotes in there so even the clueless can follow may work ? << lol! what next, footnotes for linux kernel so illiterates can understand? bitcoind? lev landau's 'mechanics' ?
asciilifeform: the landau film has precedent. when they filmed the infamous nazi atrocity pic 'come and see', they fired real bullets over the heads of the actors
