mircea_popescu: jus' same old.
mircea_popescu: You’d think this would be paradise for the males. Wrong. Every male chimp is a cuckold. Chimp alpha males are in a tizzy, running around trying to stop secret copulations between females and lower-ranking males, but the female drive for sexual variety outwits the male chimps while they are busy fighting. Alphas can only control one or two of these nymphomaniacs at once, who throw themselves on male penises every time
mircea_popescu: the alpha male’s back is turned. Males can only strategize for a higher percentage of copulations, never for faithfulness. When a chimp female in heat presents her posterior to a male, there could be any number of different guys’ sperms already swimming around in there.
mircea_popescu: This is why primatologists never watch TV. When females go into estrus, the chimp-offs are pure entertainment. It’s funny, violent, full of chases and trickery, and it’s X-rated—imagine a pornographic Three Stooges– and the researchers get to claim that counting erections is scientific research.

nubbins`: KRS-One nod
jurov: they really put faux egg/vegetables there?
nubbins`: jurov those were added after the fact
mircea_popescu: a so it's the spice packs that are supposed to do the pickling huh
nubbins`: generally you just get spice and a few freeze dried bits
nubbins`: but it's popular to put spring onion and an egg in the boiling water
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 303 @ 0.00599899 = 1.8177 BTC [+] {2}
moiety: sometimes palm oil
jurov: yep , same here, called "vifon"
moiety: i like to make mine with an egg
KRS-One: hmm i should try that
nubbins`: it's much nicer with an egg
nubbins`: and fresh green onion
moiety: i don't really mix it in though
mircea_popescu: this should be #bitcoin-frugality henceforth

nubbins`: delicious hot homemade soup delivered to your door in a stone bowl with metal cutlery and 2-3 side dishes: $3.50
mircea_popescu: nubbins` you should have lived in egypt.
asciilifeform: nubbins`: korean food is nothing if not frugal << 1 bear trap, 1 street dog ?
nubbins`: when you're done, you put the dishes outside your apartment door and they come back to collect them
mircea_popescu: i had this > 1lb dish that cost 5 lyra (a shade under a dollar)
moiety: basically, i don't like cooking just for me. noodles is quick. i don't see the point in making other things when there isn't anyone to feed them to
mircea_popescu: best shit i ever ate.
nubbins`: asciilifeform they breed the soup dogs, they don't catch strays ;D
nubbins`: mircea_popescu, moroccan food, same thing
moiety: nubbins`: actually its illegal in korea. vietnam the do pick up any dog going
nubbins`: moiety: it's a fairly common practice, i had a few offers to take me out for it
mircea_popescu: i dunno what they put in it, but it's basically a noodle in vegetable sauce
mircea_popescu: i suspect a lot of chickpea
mircea_popescu: and lentils
nubbins`: mmm
nubbins`: i should start sprouting lentils again.
mircea_popescu: no meat whatsoever, but also no unsavory chemicals
nubbins`: nod
nubbins`: that's the big difference
mircea_popescu: it's what most of cairo's 10mn population lives on, for the record.
mircea_popescu: 7 to 9 mn pounds of that stuff a day.
nubbins`: most "food" in the western world is full of sodium benzoate and shit
mircea_popescu: canned shit. yeah it's unedible.
moiety: a woman just had her son taken off her for feeding him 9 litres of goats milk a day for 6 months
moiety: he might have permanent kidney damage
mircea_popescu: moiety that's not so bright
nubbins`: heh.
nubbins`: oh, a friend has some goat meat that he wants to sausage
nubbins`: duck, too
nubbins`: i suggested making a blend of duck and moose
moiety: no, she wasn't well. poor wee boy is only 12 hasnt had solid food for half a year
mircea_popescu: duck doesn't sausage
mircea_popescu: maybe with a lot of liver.
nubbins`: no?
nubbins`: have never tried fowl, altho i've had store-bought turkey kielbasa
mircea_popescu: generally fowl and game mixes are frowned upon, but i couldnt tell you why exactly
mircea_popescu: tho i suspect it's legit.
nubbins`: interesting
mircea_popescu: you can make some excellent pheasant with foie gras "sausage" tho.
nubbins`: maybe the flavors just don't go well
nubbins`: i was only thinking to add moose because it's so dry and duck is greasy
mircea_popescu: obviously you render it first.
mircea_popescu: anyway, do you have truffles where you live ? or too cold /
nubbins`: i don't think so.
nubbins`: plenty of edible mushrooms tho
nubbins`: chanterelles in particular
mircea_popescu: still this is something i want to try now, get a pheasant, plum and gut it, boil down the carcass until everythin comes off
mircea_popescu: then select the meat, concentrate the juice, add foie gras patee'd and thin black perigord truffle
mircea_popescu: and stuff the thing.
nubbins`: interesting
mircea_popescu: smoke lightly (mostly to dry it) on something like hickory
nubbins`: i'd love to have a smoker
nubbins`: maybe this summer
mircea_popescu: it's not hard to make really.
nubbins`: nod
nubbins`: you can buy basic ones for ~$50 too
mircea_popescu: just give it enough space to dry the o no no
mircea_popescu: a smoker is a concrete building.
nubbins`: ah heh!
kakobrekla: kielbasa?
nubbins`: i was thinking something this size: http://www.topicalsalve.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/diy_smoker_parts_large.jpg
kakobrekla: is that a thing?

mircea_popescu: nubbins` think of the letter h
nubbins`: well what do i know about it :D
nubbins`: kakobrekla, sure
mircea_popescu: the right side has a fire pit
mircea_popescu: the upper left side holds the meats to be smoked
nubbins`: kolbassa, kielbasa, as many spellings as there are types
mircea_popescu: there's an air intake on to the right where the h curves
nubbins`: nod
nubbins`: that's the style i'm familiar with
mircea_popescu: right.
kakobrekla: kolbassa? really. we call it klobasa.
mircea_popescu: these pot things... meh.
nubbins`: just found that image after a "diy smoker" search
Mats_cd03: i like pecan for smoking everything
mircea_popescu: Mats_cd03 pecan'd work great for this yeah
Mats_cd03: better than hickory imo but it can be expensive if theyre not local
mircea_popescu: or maybe pistachio shell
nubbins`: how about cedar?
Mats_cd03: no
nubbins`: shame
Mats_cd03: dont use cedar or pine
nubbins`: they almost give that shit away
mircea_popescu: yeah awfl idea.
nubbins`: i've had cedar planked salmon
mircea_popescu: cedar is for making masts
Mats_cd03: i don't know exactly why, but it has to do with 'planking' v 'smoking' and theres resin in those woods

Mats_cd03: ive only been to one bad bbq ribs place in my life (<6 on a 1-10 scale) and they used cedar for their meats... tastes like smoked soot ass

ThickAsThieves: why on earth did Netflix make House of Cards available to Comcast?
ThickAsThieves: how dumb can you be...
mike_c: wow. going to be interesting to see if hbo kicks their butt in the next 5 years.
ThickAsThieves: netflix should be signing up with hbo and the like
ThickAsThieves: not comcast
ThickAsThieves: hbo should be leaving comcast
mike_c: well, hbo and netflix want to kill each other
ThickAsThieves: altough, comcast seems to be inadequately concerned about monopoly
Mats_cd03: Comcast is dying, netflix is just fucking the corpse
ThickAsThieves: well that gives comcast life
ThickAsThieves: hence the stupidity of the move
ThickAsThieves: the only acceptable future for comcast is as a vanilla internet access provider
ThickAsThieves: anything else is less than ideal for consumers
ThickAsThieves: even that is questionable
mike_c: maybe comcast agreed to stop throttling them in exchange for house of cards

ThickAsThieves: krs-one, if you dig you can find stuff
ThickAsThieves: they just need better suggestion ai
ThickAsThieves: better social integration would help too
moiety: KRS-One: exactly why i didnt keep it, i couldn't find much world cinema either
ThickAsThieves: but they fucked that up back when they got rid of Facebook integration the first time
mike_c: interesting, they did that other deal just a few weeks ago. HOC must have been part of the negotiation.
ThickAsThieves: there's more foreign films on netflix than any other option
moiety: ThickAsThieves: i didn't know they did that... why? thats dumb
moiety: ThickAsThieves: not good ones
ThickAsThieves: legal reasons
ThickAsThieves: it's back now, but limited
mike_c: ah, no. apparently it had nothign to do with netflix.
moiety: ah
mike_c: "Though Netflix holds the streaming rights for "House of Cards," Sony is in charge of distribution internationally and through home video."
ThickAsThieves: my guess is they fucked up and too many wives saw husbands autoposting that they just watch Meatballs 3
