Darwin_Fish: If I understand your question, the answer is no. This is God's purpose: And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,
mircea_popescu: logically, if you don't step on their face, they're going to go about "having ideas" and "making choices" and so on.
mircea_popescu: DID NOT work out for them ; and in typical fashion of imbecilitard, they WILL NOT confront it. ever. 100% dedicated to this, until i personally fucking grind their face in the dirt, they'll go on "lalala we know shit":\
BingoBoingo: Well, the Saudis aren't the Turks. They have oil and their borders are protected by hot sand. Turks are surrounded and have the Mediterranian's back door in their face.
davout: their ability to face the consequences of the risks they're undertaking is not something i can meaningfully argue, i have nfi how rich they are
BingoBoingo: More for the posteriority: "“It’s indiscriminate, intentional poisoning of wildlife,” says Brian Rowe, who recently retired as pesticide section manager at the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development in Lansing. “Some of them die with their face in the pan that they’re licking out of. I mean, it kills them that quick.”"
AlfredAlfer: You don't know how they're forcing the DS to literally be wiped off the face of the internet? They've gone to several domains, all have been shut down. Even tor is blocking their traffec
mircea_popescu: lilpbutterfly i think i'll have to see your face. otherwise people could just do this forever, not like you can distinguish girls by their boobies.
mircea_popescu: anyway, this endless lulz of socialism whereby they come up with a dumb "solution" to a non-problem which sane people ignore ("code pages") and THEN they come up with an "improved" solution to the same nonproblem and expect sane people to not piss on their face because hey, IMPROVED!
mircea_popescu: see, because currently the george costanzas of the world are stuck : either they go work for nbc, which does pay ok but makes women in bars laugh in their face shrieking "imagine! he writes sit coms! and he tried to USE IT!11"
mircea_popescu: once chitlin get to look into the face of their own irrelevance, things get going in a jiffy.
davout: when these monkeys get their shit rubbed in their face their answer is, I shit you not, "this isn't a bug, but we'll update our documentation to match the actual behaviour"
pete_dushenski: tis possible. tis also possible that the world won't be worse off if they car-crash themselves off the face of it, be it by their own hand or that of their robot overlords.
asciilifeform: what face value. their only consistent line for past century was 'what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine' etc.
BingoBoingo: https://encyclopediadramatica.se/Smugglypuff << "They are known by their yellow Eric Cartman style beanie, their impressively bloated whale like appearance and their smugly looking butter face." << OMG look how language evolves. Butter face went from meaning hot except for the face to instead mean Obeast with an oily sheen (like melted butter) to their fat piece of shit face.
shinohai: thestringpuller: and do you like how he is now unwittingly officially the face of their ponzi
mircea_popescu: "Men ask women to dance by trying to make eye contact and nodding towards the dance floor in a gesture called the cabeceo. In theory this is a discreet way for men to save face in the event of a refusal; in practice it means men cross the darkened room, stand three steps in front of their intended partner, and wag their head gravely until she either gets up to dance or tells them to go away." <<< bwahahaha. fucking idiots. th
mircea_popescu: anyway. the scheme is both correct and very, VERY fucking scary to "start-ups", because within 12 to 18 months, ~100% of all their capital turns to "sweet parties we have thrown". which is a sad reality they dun wanna look in the face, especially not while trying to get someone/anyone to give them moar money.
mircea_popescu: The bad thing about television is that everybody you see on television is doing something better than what you're doing. Did you ever see anybody on TV like just sliding off the front of the sofa with potato chip crumbs on their face? Some people have a little too much fun on television: the soda commercial people - where do they summon this enthusiasm? Have you seen them? "We have soda, we have soda, we have soda", jumping,
mircea_popescu: a few of them, recently called the "hopefuls" but otherwise simply the incarnation of evil, are capable of handling the statement of their assumptions, but are unwilling to separate themselves from what "they want", which is usually stupid but that's not something they're prepared to face.
mod6: The one staring me in the face is this: If we place them in trb's tree, we'll be adding vpatch after vpatch to the source base to update the makefiles as they require to be updated. Having them in their own tree could elimiate cruft in trb.
a111: Logged on 2016-06-27 20:29 asciilifeform: from phf's link, commentz: '...it's nice that run down neighborhoods get a face lift, and I love craft beer and good food and coffee as much as the next guy (er, gal)-but what happened to the factories and the people that used to work in them?

asciilifeform: from phf's link, commentz: '...it's nice that run down neighborhoods get a face lift, and I love craft beer and good food and coffee as much as the next guy (er, gal)-but what happened to the factories and the people that used to work in them? Their lives were largely destroyed by "free trade" and deindustrialization. We were once a producer society, and we were an economically and culturally healthier country (and medically). Now we
mircea_popescu: in other dubious news, this country is fucking incomprehensible. so i made mayo out of the greatest fucking eggs. clearly corn fed, happy chickens. same shop, tomatoes... the mealiest most retardedly disgusting ship-grown tomatoes. wtf! it's like they only shave half their face.
phf: well, conference scene's been taken over particularly hard by the usual suspects. it was mildly useful back in 2005, because you could get a face to face, or a beer session, with useful people. for example at pycon i got to spend time with the entire twisted team, which was at a rear end of me trying to grok their stack, so i had a lot of very productive learning sessions
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform honestly i think it's not exactly "don't be naked" but moreover part of the "head conception". you know, like streetwalkers / actresses "gotta put their face on". the conception of what a head looks like includes the scarf and that's that.
asciilifeform: 'The fallacy is to believe that under a dictatorial government you can be free inside. Quite a number of people console themselves with this thought, now that totalitarianism in one form or another is visibly on the up-grade in every part of the world. Out in the street the loudspeakers bellow, the flags flutter from the rooftops, the police with their tommy-guns prowl to and fro, the face of the Leader, four feet wide, glares from e
asciilifeform: phf: the 'idiot mode' thing is a clanging cymbal to distract reader from the brick-in-your-face-obvious fact that nsa et al openly brag about their actual ('societal control') work and are shedding the pretense of 'defense against foreign devils'
mircea_popescu: that whole narrative is something like "look at these people who gave us syphilis, it finds itself in biological equilibrium in their country and so they don't get it all that much and it's mostly under control - but here, lord! every face is covered! how much better we have it than they do!"
mircea_popescu: "get off my lawn you damn dirty apes. i think there will be arguments for years about the wisdom of emboldening these white power, white privilege self serving outlaws or letting them disperse on their own to be picked up later for prosecution. i think the worst case scenario would be letting them off with a guarantee of no criminal charges they should face a range of charges from littering to treason."
mircea_ahoy: Things your mom would have your rear end for saying, things that though you’re no expert you feel that you are clearly the most intelligent on the forum and have to interject. Things you would NEVER say to their face or at least that directly… in my blog I really want to expose just how a simple Facebook comment has torn my life apart about horses and how unfortunately I witnessed a Facebook friend receive the same cruel attack just last w
adlai: face it fatcheeks, men like their women like jagger
mircea_popescu: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/27/business/dealbook/the-unsung-tax-agent-who-put-a-face-on-the-silk-road.html?_r=0 <<< ahaha check it out, the cover-up story is shaping up! it wasn't the usg using the holes in tor to try and steal some bitcoin, after which their agents stole most of it from them in turn. oh, no! it's a heroic guy that bla bla bla, just like in thye old soviet movies!
mircea_popescu: who was the classical general that busted his own face, pretended his king did it, went to the enemies who bought it and then raped them in their sleep ?
pete_dushenski: haha mkay. low-class whiteys don't have enough 'long-term perspective' and fear for their own survival in the face of a DIMINISHING trough from which MORE cattle are to eat. and this is what passes for 'harvard research' ?
mircea_popescu: "Intelligent people, like racists, are fluent in describing themselves in opposition to what they are not, but ask them to define themselves by what they are, tell you what they do believe in, and they're lost. They have opinions on issues, sure, but ask for an overarching ideology and their face botoxes. Overarching ideology? Only people with manifestos have ideologies, not having an ideology is the whole point of
mircea_popescu: anyway, in the general, this is the closed form life equation of people doing something worthwhile : they have a terrible time as kids because their parents are idiots ; they get fucking stampeded as adults, because people are lazy ; they get all the accolades, moneys and bitches when they're old, because it doesn't do anything for them anymore (thus it's finally safe) ; once they're dead they get to be the face sellin
assbot: Logged on 25-10-2015 22:26:01; mircea_popescu: (and, note, colber's power has EXACTLY NOTHING to do with "TV" in the sense of "system". the franchises use actors in masks now, because they want to keep the copyrights, it's their "Character"| and why should an actor get to own the face of their character. but colbert is not that. so, no, it's not the system.)

mircea_popescu: ". There's a legitimate concern that sauntering into a polling booth dressed like something out a low-budget nightmare might actually be trivializing or mocking the experience of those Canadian women who face regular harassment (or worse) as part of their religious devotion"
mircea_popescu: Do not mention how their use was pioneered by the Israeli Air Force in 1948, and how they were used by the US Air Force in Vietnam in Operation Inferno in 1968. Keep repeating, “barrel bombs, barrel bombs” and stating with a straight face that the Syrian regime is using them “against its own people.” Against its own people. Against its own people. Against its own people.
mircea_popescu: "i was an integral part of the gnu sellout, and i feel kinda bad about it so i'll just pretend i didn't do anything and hey, the communitards are too dumb to know shit from their face."
mircea_popescu: (/me has known enough of the sort by noiw, to the degree he mostly points at their face and laughs)
mircea_popescu: the soviets tried the inflatatron, but by making shitstick cellphgone. it blew in their face)
assbot: Logged on 11-08-2015 12:10:01; mircea_popescu: the unholy alliance of the pretty airhead and the horde of self-loathing hamplanets where the latter convince the former that they should grind their face on sandpaper and cut off her nipples because the ugliest she gets, the "better"

pete_dushenski: and spoil the look on their face when i tell them that something in the world might be more important than their wedding ?
ascii_field: s last name, and the teacher had typed it in in full view of the students. The student said many other students used these administrators' passwords (their teachers' last names) so they can screen-share and video chat with other students. The student was briefly held in a nearby detention center, and the county Sheriff warned that other teenagers caught doing the same thing will "face the same consequences."'
nubbins`: that said, there are plenty of people who cut off a fingertip, tattoo their face, cut their nuts off, w/e... and then just go on to lead a normal, happy life
BingoBoingo: * asciilifeform got up to check on... deer trying to get in << Left side of their face seems to be more receptive to blunt trauma if it comes to that... if your deer are anything like ours
mats: "They have been persisting in their misrepresentations, lies, whatever you want to call them, about their activities there to my face"
asciilifeform: exempt folks in wot, these must face actual judgement of their peers
mircea_popescu: sentiments make no appeal. Nevertheless the high sentiments always win in the end, leaders who offer blood, toil, tears and sweat always get more out of their followers than those who offer safety and a good time. When it comes to the pinch, human beings are heroic. Women face childbed and the scrubbing brush, revolutionaries keep their mouths shut in the torture chamber, battleships go down with their guns still firin
asciilifeform: their opponents, if too vocal and not independently wealthy - face starvation.
mircea_popescu: Their Face When Trilema
mircea_popescu: the correct solution is to whip out the cock, jack off, send the film to every girl in junior high, then when the troopers show up whip the cock out, jack off on their face and beat them until they lick it off and thank you for it.
danielpbarron: i've done quite a few face-to-face trades via localbitcoins; never used their escrow. just used it to post my phone number
mircea_popescu: the us... heck, they're so fucking cowardly you can piss in their face and they'll likely limit themselves to complaining sottovoce.
nubbins`: 5 minutes later, wiping tears off their face
decimation: the us is ruled by the ruthless; they just never show their face to the public and never appear on camera
mircea_popescu: plenty of people manage to juggle a wife and a job and an insane government and still be here. i'm not one of them, as it happens, but that's neither here nor there : to condone jeffidiocy would be more of an insult to their otherwise unguilty face than i can stomach.
mircea_popescu: "A lot of people follow their own faiths. Most were indoctrinated since birth. That makes it very easy to believe the dogma. Yet, how in anybody’s right mind could they, as an adult, suddenly be told that the magic man in the sky says you need to start wearing a dress (even though you’re a dude), put your face on the ground five times a day and pray, and oh yeah, kill all the non-believers? Not happening to anybody
asciilifeform: then arguably their external 'face' is the fellow in their private net who -will- talk to strangers.
asciilifeform: i'd say, half of it is 'the boot stamping on the human face forever' - sheer pleasure in herding the peasants, sticking finger into their anthills,
mircea_popescu: on turns into grabbing a stranger’s face in a club and trying to plant one on them, totally uninvited. In speaking with foreign-born male friends, the ambiguity of “no” comes up as the most oft-repeated frustration, as most have spent their lives understanding, rightly so, that “no” means to retreat."
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves: it's not a real man, it's face morph of all the men in their target audience <<< this. it's probably the real point of facebook.
ThickAsThieves: it's not a real man, it's face morph of all the men in their target audience
asciilifeform: both of these are quite their own animals, and most users would make a face if you called it 'a lisp' - but they are as much 'a lisp' as newton and leibniz both had the 'calculus.'
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it mostly works for the target audience. to most folks in usa, who are literate in no foreign languages, never travel except on official orders, etc. - if not thrown in their face, fact does not exist.
BingoBoingo: Or their ego being unable to accept that their research subjects might be making jokes about them in front of their face
BingoBoingo: And frustrating when their face is partially obscured because you know they are making great faces
kuzetsa: HeySteve: the "had it coming" defense about agressing on somebody verbally or otherwise, to their face or otherwise isn't one I consider to be valid
punkman1: did any other girls show their face or just saffron?
mircea_popescu: then they'll go everywhere without a cloth on their face but NEVER NUDE OMG
ThickAsThieves: mp bitches no one will show their tits, then bitches they won't show face, I see where this is going
BigBitz: This, too, is antithetical to Bitcoin, but also flies in the face of all logic. Why layer the fees on to ordinary users that could be sending Bitcoin to their mom or their sick cousin? Why not let the merchants carry the cost, since they can write the fees off as a cost-of-doing-business?
benkay: rip 'em to their face.
blackwhite: Reputable exchanges with large institutional holdings could help stem such panics by advertising a willingness to sell their Bitcoins to meet liquidity demand. Yet because Bitcoin reserves are finite, users may not find the promise credible. By contrast, central banks with the inexhaustible resources of the printing press face no such inconvenient constraints."
MisterE: I look around me and everyone's face is buried in their phones I think its sad
benkay: every derp face crafting their derpy 140 char dropping for the internet
mircea_popescu: “As any industry matures it will face growing pains and there will be individuals who believe they can use the fog of uncertainty to cover up their follies. When it comes to policy, it is the responsibility of the federal government to steer the boat, not row the boat. Our Committee will continue to work closely with relevant U.S. government entities to steer the boat away from nefarious actors - and it’s up to l
benkay: It was on occasion of the annual celebration in honor of Latona and her offspring, Apollo and Diana, when the people of Thebes were assembled, their brows crowned with laurel, bearing frankincense to the altars and paying their vows, that Niobe appeared among the crowd. Her attire was splendid with gold and gems, and her face as beautiful as the face of an angry woman can be. She stood and surveyed the people with haughty looks. "What
MisterE: oh that's just the latest face of their printing presses running at full speed
mircea_popescu: well technically bills these days are more expensive to make than their face value, so it is a sort of pillage
nubbins`: "Everybody needs loving and understanding. People get their courage to live from loving and understanding. Understanding means listening and compassion. Rape victims have to gather their courage to live in order to stand on their dignity and to face future."
nubbins`: (nobody would mail-order drugs with a picture of their face on the bag)
diametric: asciilifeform: yeah, but I can actually use my 3D scanner (that does full body now), and scan someones face, union it onto their own dick if they even want, and then cast it
Bugpowder: Your hedge fund client is using a retail checking account. Rather than use a business bank account, Madoff’s hedge fund put billions of dollars from thousands of investors into a retail account, and didn’t bother to segregate it with sub-accounts. His accounts “exhibited, on their face, a ‘glaring absence of securities activity.’”
dub: the look on their face when they find out you weren't joking when you said 'cosmic rays'
mircea_popescu: yeah, it's not like they've not had an example shoved in their face for > 1 year now
mircea_popescu: "Members of parliament may be arrested or otherwise deprived of their freedom, or face restrictions thereof, only with the permission of the desk of their assembly. "
arij: on their face?
Diablo-D3: Im totally use to coins that are worth far more than their face value
ThickAsThieves: maybe i'll be able to tell someone they are an idiot to their face for you
Hollywoodundead: 2. Direct Redemption: Bonds may be redeemed at any time at 95% of face value, 0.00095 for each bond.

mircea_popescu: instead of pissing all over their face at every turn, as he should.
mircea_popescu: "His large number of articles on the genre have garnered mainstream attention:[6] The Chap Magazine dubbed him "America's authority on the movement"[7] in one of their discussions of Steampunk, Marie Claire Italy described him as "a specialist in this field,"[8] and Papermag has called him "the unofficial face of Steampunk."[9] His opinions on the genre are frequently quoted in discussions of steampunk in a variety of
mircea_popescu: t don't come true and nobody prints your name in the paper 'til you die...The truth is, you never grow'd up. Grown-ups don't hang up on their friends...and they don't hang up on their wives...and they don't hang up on life. Now that's the truth and that's what you can't face!
