asciilifeform: how's that
mircea_popescu: what do you mean how. yes all puppies eventually die, but that's not what we're talking about.
mircea_popescu: you have a maximal puppy density that allows the biomass in question to stay puppy-shaped
asciilifeform: hard to argue with this
asciilifeform: but how does it tie to the thread..?
asciilifeform: am i thick?
ben_vulpes would appreciate slightly less heavyweight metaphors too
mircea_popescu: well no, it's unrelated. hence the "infinitely more interesting news"
asciilifeform: ah!
asciilifeform: l0l
asciilifeform: and here i was breaking my brain.
mircea_popescu: anyway. maximal density is the killer. yes, obedient slave takes whipping. there's a maximal % of her time she can spend being whipped.
mircea_popescu: "In a rare bid for sanity, the Harford County School District had cancelled all field trips for students into Baltimore, as it is clearly an unsafe environment. The mulattress mayor [the same whore who let the city burn and then requested that 1,000 Somali refugees be settled in Baltimore] was outraged. Phone calls were made, and the school authorities waffled, and will now be sending their children into harm's way, wh
mircea_popescu: ere else, but in Harm City."
mircea_popescu: such hate speech.
asciilifeform: i can only assume that if this 'engine redline' is held for long enough, mircea_popescu will throw the chick back into the wild, or otherwise expel
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i don't believe in externalities. so, no.
mircea_popescu: or mebbe we're not talking about the same thing. hm.
mircea_popescu: the idea is! that the picture there linked is trying to mesh two unmeshable things. notice the dude is all like "business as usual, whatever". whereas in fact, it's nothing but!
asciilifeform: if she requires more whipping than is readily available
mircea_popescu: ah ah. but i was discussing recreational whipping not educational whipping.
asciilifeform: ah!
asciilifeform: i can't even tell, what is she doing
asciilifeform: to what is the brush attached ?
asciilifeform: and why is the dude sitting there idly
mircea_popescu: what dop you mean, attached ? she's holding it
mircea_popescu: but the idea is see, he's hanging out, the mistress sleeping (as if any woman sleeps in garter belt and high heels) and the slave doing doing houseworkl
mircea_popescu: with a fucking wrecking ball attached.
asciilifeform: i immediately thought that this picture was not intended to represent 'typical day in the life' but rather is a boschian thing
mircea_popescu: leaving aside the cramped environment : yes, woman can be made to do either. but it wouldn't be fucking sleep or fucking work. it'd be THIS. and this is not life, this is THIS.
mircea_popescu: it is very mujch a boschian thing, specifically because of this tension.
asciilifeform: aha, that much was clear
mircea_popescu: it has the unmistakable immaturity of virginal youth, unaware that pegs are round, holes are square.
mircea_popescu: you know, people who never kept slavegirls could conceivably dream up this alt-reality where slave girls go like this.
mircea_popescu: i suppose if we must have an aesop, someone who wasn';t ever gavin might imagine things about how being gavin is.
mircea_popescu: but still ... the pegs and the holes.
asciilifeform: it did not even occur to me that anyone would think this.
mircea_popescu: i know plenty of people who think exactly this.
mircea_popescu: ~exactly~ this. and very much don't want to think otherwise, either.
asciilifeform: if i show a picture of, e.g., chess players, what , viewer will assume that they play from dawn to dusk until they drop, and while cleaning the house, eating, shitting ?
mircea_popescu: it is possible.
mircea_popescu: if shown a cheesecake picture, they DO in fact imagine that the woman looks like that from dawn to dusk, while shitting, etc.
asciilifeform: i don't even sadomasochate but i always assumed that it was a hobby like any other
mircea_popescu: what shitting! cheesecake chicks don't even fart.
asciilifeform: you do it for some time and then do other thing
mircea_popescu: not quite.
asciilifeform: well sure, there is a certain amount of 'like sledding? like pulling sled too!'
asciilifeform: gotta set up household for the pets, etc?
mircea_popescu: not what i meant. depends on what variant one entertains etc, but there is such a thing where the slave's the slave throughout the day, do what she may.
asciilifeform: aha but still this involves more housework than walking with weights, i'd imagine ?
mircea_popescu: yeah i dunno why you'd be walking with weighs, big calves aren't particularly in demand.
asciilifeform: but i think i see where mircea_popescu is going, this is the old 'thirsty man thinks he can drink the sea' theorem
mircea_popescu: well... i guess. more akin to "boy sees no use for veggies, they're getting in the way of cake"
asciilifeform: more of how the boy might have problems grasping why his parents do anything other than eating cake ☟︎
mircea_popescu: quite!
mircea_popescu: that does it.
mircea_popescu: i suspect every youthful generation's conviction the previous people are dumb and generally suck has a lot to do with this.
asciilifeform: and it does not take a heroic amount of introspection to find oneself int his picture
asciilifeform: i, for instance, am fixated on free time and escape from workschwitz
asciilifeform: can't imagine what i might possibly want, if had that
mircea_popescu: that's not bad caker.
asciilifeform: imagine if all the cake you ever got to eat was, say, 20 grams max
asciilifeform: so you know what it tastes like and that's it.
mircea_popescu: aha
asciilifeform had not done what most folks think of as 'vacation' since 2011
mircea_popescu: i never did that.
mircea_popescu: vacation fucking sucks. ☟︎
jurov: when i was a kid i have imagined adults fulfill their desires in some secret magical way, so that they don't eat cake all the time
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu was never a slave, so probably can't even conceptualize it
mircea_popescu: no but seriously... spend some time doing SOMETHING OTHER than what you're doing ? dude, if i thought this is a good idea... i would just stop doing what i;m doing. that day. forever. wtf.
mircea_popescu: jurov not a bad working model for a preteen huh
asciilifeform: aha because mircea_popescu has a choice !
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know the monty python "there are two kinds of people" sketch ?
asciilifeform: no but i can easily picture where this goes
asciilifeform: 'there are mircea_popescus and there are offal, off to the fermentation vats, offal'

asciilifeform: all of the 'stop caring' theory really resolves to it, as i understand
mircea_popescu: because wtf do i care about rsa ?
jurov: for example i'm recently considering to close coinbr, it would simplify my life considerably as it tends to desync from mpex at the worst possible times

BingoBoingo: The lawyers?
mircea_popescu: and for that matter long before.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo 1 in 1000 if that.
mircea_popescu: most software is never fucking read.
BingoBoingo: Depends where you are how many doctors notes get read by lawyers
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu is still thinking like a normal person in some honest non-soviet economy
asciilifeform: where things such as doctors and accountants exist
mircea_popescu: i did say civilisation.
asciilifeform: i'd like to visit civilization.
mircea_popescu: for the record, the us is an example of nothing and a measuring stick for nothing,
mircea_popescu: ghana is more relevant to any discussion than the united states.
asciilifeform: iirc ghana, like many abject shitholes, is 100% usgtronic
mircea_popescu: ghana existed long before the british were invented.
asciilifeform: iroquois also existed
asciilifeform: but modern usa is not them.
asciilifeform: ditto ghana.
mircea_popescu: well technically... the arabs conquered them.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, one of the few and far between actual cultures in africa.
mircea_popescu: (ftr, the camel is not native to africa. was introduced, with an effect similar to the introduction of metalworking in europe)
asciilifeform: but mircea_popescu is right, the sheer phantasmagoric disconnect from physical reality in usaschwitz has no analogue anywhere else in known spacetime
mircea_popescu: a dream, no matter how shared, is not a thing, nor could be a thing, and so does not matter to any actual thing.
asciilifeform: interestingly, camel was introduced to the americas in early 19th c
asciilifeform: and even took hold
asciilifeform: but for some reason nobody rides them
asciilifeform: (i am told that there are places where they can be.. hunted)
mircea_popescu: camel needs a lot of training to be ridden
asciilifeform: more than horse ?
mircea_popescu: think bronco busting, and then think camel is roughly 2x the size.
asciilifeform: ah this yes
mircea_popescu: much more than horse. for one thing, horse loves people.
mircea_popescu: camel, like mule, doesn';t really give a shit.
