BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> other than that, "studying" monkeys to "understand" people is not unlike bugging the neighbour's appartment to "understand" why your wife cheated on you. << Makes the basis of a number of pulp murder mysteries.
mircea_popescu: sure sure, and king kong.
mircea_popescu: i never saw it.
BingoBoingo: My narrative of the split is that brother chimp was happy with just taking the jungle fruit welfare, and brother man decided fuck that and made the ground his bitch inventing agriculture.
mircea_popescu: there's a huge gap between the split and agriculture. you're missing the voice, pastoral life, a lot.

BingoBoingo: Then again Romanian education presented to mircea_popescu the blowjob slut bonobo as the "chimp" and cannibal violence machine is presented in Anglophone culture as the chimp.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo it's the way of over there. ro notion of bear is mostly "this cute thing".
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> there's a huge gap between the split and agriculture. you're missing the voice, pastoral life, a lot. << A lot, but fuckers didn't write shit down
BingoBoingo: Here bear alternates. Bear you can punch and Bear you can't punch co-exist.
BingoBoingo: But still here all cats of a certain size are still on the walk away and buy a big dog list.
BingoBoingo: Then again in parts of south Asia Elephants are friendly tractors until they need to get their nut off and turn into murder machines
mircea_popescu: from what i gather the latter behaviour is mostly human-reactive.

shinohai: Nothing duct tape can't fix.
ben_vulpes: duct tape can't fix steel beams.
mircea_popescu: where's that engineering fixkit
mircea_popescu: "does it move ? should it ?"
shinohai: Vagina is dry, little wd-40 mebbe.
ben_vulpes: i just glare
ben_vulpes: shinohai: a woman recently told me that "caring for her family was the most rewarding job [she'd] ever had"
ben_vulpes: why is that attitude so uncommon?
mircea_popescu: does it move ? yes -> should it ? yes no problem / no -> duct tape | no -> should it ? yes wd40 no - >no p[roblem
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes because it makes zero fucking sense. it is not a job.
mircea_popescu: the only people who go "sitting quietly in the car is the best car driving they ever did" are mentally ill 15 yos.
mircea_popescu: who a) should not be driving ; b) want to be driving ; c) can't find a sane way out of this.
ben_vulpes: what the work of cooking and cleaning and throwing dinner parties isn't work somehow?
mircea_popescu: it is not.
mircea_popescu: if you think it is, train a slave to do it at home, try to hire a brutha to do it at your diner.
mircea_popescu: see how they compare, see why.
ben_vulpes: sounds like quite a lot of work to me
mircea_popescu: work != job.
mircea_popescu: labour != value
mircea_popescu: etc etc.
ben_vulpes: i value the place's cleanliness, tidiness and general quality of things and food around
mircea_popescu: good for you!
mircea_popescu: but the POINT of jobs is for the employees to be fungible. the point of house slaves is for the slaves to be the opposite of fungible.
ben_vulpes: aha, this
mircea_popescu: among other many things. they're really orthogonal things.
mircea_popescu: why the fuck would the woman have to apologize for not being retarded by calling what she does ia job is beyond me.
ben_vulpes: *parser error*
mircea_popescu: "caring for her family was the most rewarding job [she'd] ever had" aka "my domestic slavery is a much more fulfilling, pleasant and empowering personal situation than your job will ever hope to get". that's what it is.
mircea_popescu: "o but we decided slavery is bad". yeah, like ballas decided killing is never right.
shinohai: Sounds like my ex wife for sure.
ben_vulpes: perhaps (iiuyc) it's the american tic of 'job'.
mircea_popescu: deeper than that. it's the american tic of raceysm.
ben_vulpes: wuthao
shinohai: Fulfilling because her fat American ass wasn't going to do any of that.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: how does 'raceysm' figure into this
mircea_popescu: because "raceysm" is the shorthand for a social convention, that's on one hand nonsensical, and on the other precludes people who are slaves from addressing their slavery as such. it must be called something else. because lo and behold, a person who does work for no pay at the behest of her masters is now "in a job" hurr durr.
mircea_popescu: what's wrong with just introducing yourself as "domestic slave" ? oh, i saw that in a film once. better call it "housewife"
mircea_popescu: o wait no, that's bad also. gotta call it what, motherjob now ?
ben_vulpes: aheyheahuhea
ben_vulpes: tis one of the jobs alf would kill for
mircea_popescu: except it's not a job and so he can't have it.
ben_vulpes: "i don't care how long you sleep or how long it takes you but this place better be clean and my underwear rolled in that drawer"

mircea_popescu: see how the culture subtly ensures people are unhappy ?
mircea_popescu: he can't see all this because reasons, of the TYPE of the reason that's "raceysm" even if not exactly identical.
ben_vulpes: he's a russian, they're genetically already ensured to be unhappy
mircea_popescu: no, they're genetically ensured to be wistful.
mircea_popescu: they gotta be unhappy on their own dime.
ben_vulpes: mother, another unfungible role.
mircea_popescu: "oh but being a slave is bad!11". sure. except if you believe this someone will extract value out of you by calling it something else. "but i already do that, you think this brand name medicine is worth the difference from generics ?" right-o.
ben_vulpes: yeah but i also don't care to have that conversation every single day
mircea_popescu: exactly.
mircea_popescu: "son, your mother has cancer. here's a line-up of applicants for the job."
ben_vulpes: "wife" works around here.
mircea_popescu: i have the blessed chomsky advantage. apparently this is rare, but, i don't mind bothering people.
ben_vulpes: chomsky advantage?
mircea_popescu: yeah. not giving a shit about having the same conversation with different dumb people every day.
mircea_popescu: (more precisely : not giving enough of a shit to cave - mowing down the dumb people doesn't count.)
ben_vulpes: strikes me as a colossal waste of time, but then again i'm not a fantastically wealthy financier.

ben_vulpes to the mines
mircea_popescu: and getting back to slavery (as a historical consturct this time) and the subtle perversion of culture : in the ten billion discussions of how badly antebellum slaves had it that point out that they were being educated (misrepresented as "beatings" and horror, of course), how many stop to point out that a) they didn't starve periodically like their northern counterparts and b) if they behaved had lifetime, even GENERAT
mircea_popescu: IONAL security ?
mircea_popescu: "oh, slavery meant immunity from foreclosure ?" "be a good non-slave jobsman and don't thionk about that!"
mircea_popescu: "wait, for them and their grandkids ? my family was foreclosed on five times in three generations! " "don't you have it so much better ? FORTY ACRES AND A MULE!!1"
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes it is a collosal waste of time. the problem with time however is that it can be but wasted - whatever you do with it can not be traded for the time it took. not at a profit, not at all. so... waste, all of it anyway.
mircea_popescu: but yes, i agree, it's a waste.

mircea_popescu: it was clear to me that the amount of money he made off seinfeld (~zilch) is actually a very correct evaluation of his actual contribution to the show.
mircea_popescu: which in and of itself is an unexpected result - when you think soaps you don't think "judicious remuneration of contributors" first and foremost.

mircea_popescu: "I'll add that the majority of the people I email are male; the few women I've emailed haven't been any different. I've confirmed this by waiting a long time (month) and re-emailing a different (but still simple) version as a woman.
mircea_popescu: The conclusion I went to first was that there is some unconscious sexual element; not that the academics thought they were going to seduce me, of course, but that they derived some greater pleasure in answering the women than the men.
mircea_popescu: But perhaps there's a different explanation: there may be an assumption that if a guy asks such a basic/stupid question, then he's an idiot and not worth bothering with; but if a girl asks it, well, a college girl isn't held to the same standard/ expected to know as much."
mircea_popescu: how about the alternative explanation being "society as a whole thinks young males should die horribly in droves and fuck you already."
mircea_popescu: were THAT true, it would ironically make a move away from pervasive, entrenched gender inequality in favour of the males a deeply populist move.
