"because we went to trouble of making 50 types of sausage and printing this leaflet to let you know" "ah ok then" ☝︎☝︎

mp_en_viaje: 1980s ro complained that "poor quality", as in, "ceausescu puts soy in salami, chickory in coffee and corn flakes in chocolate". yet 2010s ro paid extra for outside terms, and the middle term item of hipster interest.
mp_en_viaje: meanwhile, 1980s ro were actually upset because ~nobody could be arsed to advertise to them~. subjectively perceived ego wound.

asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: 'west reich' 100yrs ahead in zombiefication tech vs. 'east', evidently. 'soy salami' there, undreamed of in sovok, and 0 'mass' complaint, importers of genuine food from e.g. europistan struggle , rather than make mega-bank.
asciilifeform: ameri-sovok achieved the 'dream' of 'soy man', who ~demands~ soy salami.
mp_en_viaje: as long as vanity is catered to, turns out mooman can suffer anything.
asciilifeform: not even suffer. joyfully scarfs up.
asciilifeform: ever open a tin of ameri-'coffee' , out of curiosity ?
BingoBoingo: California, land of the exquisite soy sausage and petrocheese picada
asciilifeform: i knew a fella who could not. i.e. could not be in same hallway with opened can. cuz allergic to cockroach...
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, there's a pic with a can of folgers' somewher
asciilifeform: re 'vanity', not sure the usual word even applicable. can haz 'vanity' after destruction of the self ?
mp_en_viaje: well yes.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: They don't destroy the self. They preserve it in derealized selfy comfort bubble
mp_en_viaje: can only has vanity after destruction of the self. of what use before ?
mp_en_viaje: vanity ~= phantom pains of the self.
mp_en_viaje: "i know there must be a person somewhere in this person-shaped hole in the air"
asciilifeform: zombiefication system worx pretty well tho to distract the shaped holes from looking inward.
asciilifeform: ( and when fails, shrink with neuroleptic prescription is ready to 'help' )
