mircea_popescu: in general, if you aim to raise children it's a bad idea to pick the nation of idiots.
ben_vulpes: oh, now we like to compete in crowded markets?
mircea_popescu: no ?
mircea_popescu: children don't compete. that's the thing with childhood,

asciilifeform: let's have the coordinates of the shangri-la without idiots
mircea_popescu: no, that's not it. "you want kids, you live with the niggers. that's where the kids factory is. i commute to mine, you commute to yours."
mircea_popescu: that way the manner she's accustomed will be correctly calibrated.
mircea_popescu: it's unhealthy to raise kids in YOUR means anyway. especially daughters, but in general.
mircea_popescu: let them earn their own.
asciilifeform: imperial ru army
asciilifeform: (but they didn't do daughters)

mircea_popescu: kyra kyralina does hold some valuable etnofolkloric information.
mircea_popescu: "Let me tell you a little of "traditional marriage". The traditional marriage of the Greekxiii works like so : the married woman, and her children, keep house in the castle. The married man, with his apprentices, keeps a workshop somewhere in the workshop quarters, outside the walls. He has an older woman there who cooks, because the apprentices are entitled to be fed by the master. The man visits the woman occasionall
mircea_popescu: y, to beat her, to fuck her, to talk to her. Depending on how close they are, and marriages go through phases anyway. Some husbands may sleep with the woman, some may sleep at the workshop, some may alternate. And marriages go through phases anyway. The woman may not visit her husband. The kids do not generally get to, except boys of sufficient age, if the father even likes them at all. Which isn't that much of a given
mircea_popescu: . Girls in no case do." of interest here.

asciilifeform: and they'd have to
mircea_popescu: as tlp wel lpoints out, it's not that "work" invades the home. is that you need the blinker for existential support.
mircea_popescu: or as george points out, "you take tv out of this relationship, it is just murder"
mircea_popescu: but hey, "mancave", right ?

asciilifeform: anyway the whole pit/cave system never quite made sense to me
