asciilifeform: 'activists' who kick moar wasp hive than their arse can handle, have problems, i did not think this were surprising observation

ben_vulpes: it's so pleasing to watch all of these golden toilet tekmologies fall to basic 'wasp'tech.

asciilifeform: lol! 'eating cake is just like eating a live wasp nest, except with no cake and with wasps'
mircea_popescu: it should be noted that i have at least a dozen different wasp nests actively maintained all about.
BingoBoingo occasionally get bitten by mosquito and less frequently collides with Cicada killer wasp
asciilifeform: complete with wasp
mircea_popescu: how am i gonna get a wasp nest in orbit.
mircea_popescu: if its a paper wasp colony, destroing the nest is usually enough.
asciilifeform: duct tape is not mega-obstacle for wasp.
mircea_popescu: wasp stings are actually a health benefit, within bounds.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it is mistake to compare to thin air and distilled water. compare to, e.g., mosquito's malaria, wasp stings.
phf: it's one of the reasons i started looking in this direction. obviously gps is inadequate for wasp stack
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

mircea_popescu: vespa for the wasp.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: examples like your ant abound. consider the infamous sphex wasp
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.
mircea_popescu: well, nobody's wasp proof. including the derpy archduke.
asciilifeform: if yer wasp-proof -- fuck away
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: and i have exactly same sympathy for 'stotters' who deliberately provoke the idiot cop as for those dudes who fuck wasp hives.
asciilifeform: ru prison has miniature version also, upturned glass with single wasp/fly/whatever stings
asciilifeform: a while ago i briefly considered showing up at the 'pgp conference' but decided against. there is a difference between entomologist and those fellas who fuck wasp hives
mircea_popescu: defenseless. a fucking wasp colony can take out the defenseless.
mircea_popescu: wasp is a very heavy type of gnat.
mircea_popescu: ie, they need a sort of state like the wasp's parents. dead corpse to be eaten. still etatist though.

asciilifeform: we even have something called a 'ground wasp' here
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..?
mircea_popescu: it keeps women from devolving into the wasp nest dvorkin'd live in, of her own devices.
mircea_popescu: o yeah. wasp is very disciplined.

BingoBoingo: <decimation> if you are wondering the southwest and find a gigantic blue wasp dragging around a freshly-paralyzed tarantula, leave it alone << Fuck. 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
BingoBoingo: wasp/hornet is a hard distinction to make in north America. Most things we'd refer to in NA as hornets look more like European wasps than North American wasps

mircea_popescu: the common polen wasp as found in yurp doesn't really sting worth a shit.

BingoBoingo: ;;google yellowjacket wasp
BingoBoingo: So yardwork story from today. This year we've had a bumper crop of what I though were bumblebees move it, turns out they are carpenter bees. Rather harmless things I'm trimming trees the squirrels planted in the flower beds and the big bees are just buzzing around pollinating the shit out of the columbine... Yellowjacket wasp gets the jump on one of the bees near me and as I retreat because fuck yellow jackets, all of the carpente
mircea_popescu: he is simply making stuff out of masticated wood pulp, like a wasp
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> get stung by nutso us wasp o may gawd... << There's a burrowing and colonizing Vespid species endemic here. When they nest in the yard it is time for the serious chemicals. Eradicating a nest will scar that part of the yard for years.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform depends on the wasp, but not very well known really.
asciilifeform: what's in a wasp, anyway? formic acid ?
mircea_popescu: get stung by nutso us wasp o may gawd...

mats: i think the WASP is a more economically feasible approach
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> mircea_popescu: i got a piece of junk mail once, advertising specially-made capsules (for folks who have no idea how to use a saw or glue?) for buring rifles. << Obvious hypothesis, they found a Wasp cache and kept the rifles
kakobrekla: aha the wasp danced him do death
mats: the wasp wins, actually
mats: there's one where a scorpion lookin thing flips a wasp, pins it, and then kills it by eating his butt
asciilifeform: a 'wasp' could sow some very thick confusion via replay, even if he cannot decode.
mircea_popescu: a you're ok then. ever stepped on a dead wasp ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 3rd snowden is then, logically, invited to 'go wasp'
