mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: '...for your convenience we have packaged the defective 8% of transistors you asked for, separately!' (tm) (r)
mircea_popescu: depends to. the problem here is that high value males are interested in owning females, not interested in producing litter. consequently, western world has fertility crisis. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: if society were actually sane, i'd prolly reproduce, so the cost issue is iffy.
asciilifeform: ~nobody cares to breed muppets for hitler's army.
mircea_popescu: quite.
mircea_popescu: even without shoehorning "hitler" in here, the only sane way reproduction works is that i have life and death power over any offspring until they go on their own.
asciilifeform: aha!
mircea_popescu: then the female drive to reproduce is finally balanced, and i frankly wouldn't care if they want or don't want to get pregnant, make your own choices.

asciilifeform: as it is i'd rather eat nagant.
asciilifeform: for offspring you need sane world + economic surplus (at least at the not-being-in-labour-camp level)
mircea_popescu: demographically it's rather lulzy, tho. take europe : it went through three to twelve generations of this negative selection, 0 reproduction from higher value individuals, depending how you count the generations. and, woe of woes : BEFORE, the better tatars came raiding, and raped. so it fixed things, for a century or two.
asciilifeform: or, alternatively, being stray dog who doesnt giveafuq
mircea_popescu: but now, the higher value arabs are ALSO sitting home with the bitches, and sending the runts over.
mircea_popescu: there is ~no way europe doesn't turn into africa.
mircea_popescu: it's like, "take the lowest quartile of this population, let it reproduce with the lower quartile of that population, see what you get"
mircea_popescu: i dunno, flying mice ?
asciilifeform: subsahara aha
asciilifeform: coming soon to an africa near you.
mircea_popescu: that's the thing various derps dun wanna say. sure, numerically, 500mn europe, what does it care about 5mn immigrants.
asciilifeform: 5mn snackbat cox tho
asciilifeform: snackbar
mircea_popescu: well, it cares, because that 500mn europe has a 1.x children per woman, and 90% of them are made with idiots, and the 5mn are... also idiots. once you start looking at the actual demographic breakdown, it couldn't really take 50k of the derps.
asciilifeform: incidentally i wonder if tatar rape therapy even works any moar - many (most?) of the prospective 'patients' take steroidal bc pill...

BingoBoingo: If you're quarentining the wireless network to play with toys on the discontinued "airrouter HP" will offer rather good range at cheapish price. Just do srs networking on something else.

BingoBoingo has an airrouter not the HP version serving some toys here. Playing with iptables over ssh is nice, but can not run whole set of AWS blocker rules on its own without crashing.
