mp_en_viaje: they're not all that great capital goods. obviously immensely better than usgistani paper wasp atrocities, yes.
asciilifeform: wasp, when nests in his corpse, would laff right back, if he knew how.
asciilifeform: very easy for zoologist to laff at wasp, when he's a 'k' shaved ape
asciilifeform: wasp's natural env, incidentally, does not contain stealthy removers of caterpillars, afaik (they deposit'em in quite well concealed place)
asciilifeform: given that the wasp is still around , evidently worx out.
asciilifeform: it is interesting that wasp seems to lack 'rng'. asciilifeform does not know why, or what sorta evolutionary sense it makes.
mp_en_viaje: was another thing, some other preditorial wasp, where it 1. drag to nest ; 2. inspect nest ; 3. deposit in nest.
asciilifeform: dunno that so diff. recall the sphex wasp ? the 1 that will still run the 'walk to caterpillar, see if eggs in its spine hatched' even if entomologist removes the caterpillar.
asciilifeform: moar like 'i'ma not stick cock in wasp nest'
mircea_popescu: cursory familiarity with the state of the computing stack (and, implicitly, the utter ridiculousness of any wasp-remnant notions of "the public oppionion" and "wouldn't permit" etc) would have saved that white haired tard a lot of unplesantness down in ecuador embassy.
trinque: right, so economics alone are keeping them from the wasp nest neighborhoods, which is my point.
trinque: asciilifeform: was hilarious when harvey came through and ripped these brick facades off the suburban wasp nests
mircea_popescu: well, this is where the wasp analogy breaks down -- because there is no way to distinguish between the speshul snowflake "engineer" and the speshul snoflake douchebag.
asciilifeform: the wasp himself however can certainly distinguish b/w own species and other.
mircea_popescu: ie, not merely "just says wasp". i am actually saying there is no way to distinguish between the two.
asciilifeform: m mircea_popescu's olympus they are indistinguishable, the way untrained human cannot distinguish 2 types of wasp necessarily, will think 'wasp'
BingoBoingo: Not everything in print can be Popescu's work on the Urban-Rural dispute or Russel's 'Wasp'
asciilifeform: where they gotta actually forage for wasp hives etc
asciilifeform: 'activists' who kick moar wasp hive than their arse can handle, have problems, i did not think this were surprising observation
asciilifeform: even in wasp hive, not errybody smells the pheromone right away, and recalcitrants 'won't yield', keep on laying 'illicit' eggs etc for a spell

mircea_popescu: not a single one, you understand me, out of dozens examined, proved upon examination to be more than wasp spit and dung.
mircea_popescu: at least the russians used it to make bombs. these fucktards grind perfectly fine pine down to mix it with glue and make their stupid paper wasp nests, it's gross on top of being stupid.
mircea_popescu: also kinda biased by living in jungle nao. yesterday scraped off some gregarious antsy-wasp nest off one window, within hours flies were sucking the life out of the larvae fallen on the window sill ; later that window found different sort of wasp nest hidden in between sliding doors, with hunting wolf spider treating the cells like so many cans of preserve. and it rained for a month and everything needs a machete.
mircea_popescu: the variety of wasps they have here is staggering. i got TWO kinds nesting, one's a perfectly harmless paper wasp, they eat the polen off a vine growing ion the fence. the other's a mud hut building guy, i think he eats spiders. then a third really fearsome type showed up evidently praying on the first type... then later a fourth super tiny kind was discovered when one fell in my drink....
mircea_popescu: i haven't yet seen one. or i think i might've seen one, that may also have been a misidentified wasp
asciilifeform: aah ~that~ wasp
mircea_popescu: phf what's "wasp lifestyle" ? white protestant ?!
phf: i'm weary of things that require Wasp lifestyle though, can be done, good to be able to do it, but it's not something you can bootstrap from normal state

asciilifeform: lethal to all bees but a species somewhere in jp, that knows the pill against the wasp (surround it, and kill with own head)
mircea_popescu: they still built housing out of concrete not chewed wasp nest.
asciilifeform: note, i didn't paint wasp-fucking as a sin. simply another hobby, that requires adequate preparation and equipment.

asciilifeform: ( can anyone find, in the logz, that iconic photo of the fella spinning wasp hive on his cock ? try as i might, it refuses to turn up )

asciilifeform: l0l! largest wasp i've ever seen. barely fit through the vac hose!
mircea_popescu: this is the wasp pretense. to my eyes a direct equivalent to nixon's delusioned in place "silent electorate". i don't think it ever held any water.
mircea_popescu: make a fake wasp nest ?
mircea_popescu: no wonder and no explanation needed that darwin became such a religious lightning rod. theory of... "evolution". there's no evolution involved in darwinism, per se. a wasp today has "evolved" just as much and for just as long as jane austin "evolved".
mircea_popescu: typical behaviour of spider unaware that what it's trying to catch is a wasp. that eats spiders.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform aha. best usg wasp!
mircea_popescu: also denotes vespa carbo, large, loud forrest dwelling wasp
mircea_popescu: no, that's not the issue. the issue is that a dumbass feminist who ate enough so you can't distinguish her wasp bites from man boobs imagines herself a "homosexual male".
ben_vulpes: a wasp, a wasp, my 401k for a wasp
asciilifeform: see 'wasp' - how many maniacs does a city need running loose to stop all meaningful commerce..?

No tarantulas here, but that coloration is new this year among some of the assorted wasps I've ignored as variations on the paper wasps. Will have nore concern for
decimation: if you are wondering the southwest and find a gigantic blue wasp dragging around a freshly-paralyzed tarantula, leave it alone
