mod6: i dunno, i guess i could. my understanding was that most of these greenhouses start the seeds in like march time-frame. but maybe i'm way off there.
mod6: i've seen it snow here on June 1st before.
mod6: in your fridge?!
mod6: huh. i'll have to do that next year and see how it goes.
mod6: i think the real trick is to collect the seeds from the plants.
shinohai: Yeah soak those fuckers then trick seeds into thinking spring
mod6: not sure exactly how to do that on some of them. like tomatoes and cukes are obvious, but what about the cabbabe and dill, etc?
mod6: shinohai: aight, cool. will give that a shot next year.
BingoBoingo: Just get some jiffy pots and put the seeds in the window sill them?
mod6: that's the one problem. not a lot of window-sill real-estate for that shit. plus: cats.
mod6: they fuck up all plants.
mod6: anyway, thanks for the advice. will test that next year for sure.
BingoBoingo: Send them to vacation with alf in chicago for a few months until the frost threat leaves?
mod6: he's going to chiraq?
shinohai: asciilifeform if you get bored call: http://chicago.backpage.com/FemaleEscorts/call-773-527-7631-beautiful-and-busty-chinese-girl-suki-new-in-town/27691475

asciilifeform: spamolade
asciilifeform: was obvious instantly from photo
asciilifeform: unless yer blind
shinohai: I'm drunk so imma call her pimp and ask if they want a railroad job.
asciilifeform: shinohai: collect nigerian million first
asciilifeform: it will help.
shinohai: This is Nigeria. If I don't get new 1 Trillion bill I'm going home.
shinohai: *100 trillion
mircea_popescu: mod6 rain planting works for the plants :D
mod6: yeah, they certainly got a new home.
mod6: i was up to my gd eyeballs in mud lol
mod6: i told the girls that we'll try by seed germ. next yaer, but they agreed that'd be a pita.
mod6: a good test either way tho
shinohai: Here no rain but still 28°C - sweating balls
asciilifeform not looking forward to reswamping
mod6: its like 16C here
mod6: er, 18
mircea_popescu: mod6 you could try making a hard transparent plastic foil lean-to
mircea_popescu: basically put a wooden frame like an old screen door or w/e upright, and the plastic from it.
mod6: ah, like a little greenhouse ?
mod6: that'd be rather awesome if that's what you mean, and it might come to that tbh.
mircea_popescu: yeah, it should be enough to get the seedlings up
mircea_popescu: just make sure you orient it for sun/wind
mod6: *nod* would take care of the cat problem too.
shinohai: .22 LR also takes care of cat problems.
asciilifeform: shinohai: savage
mod6: haha, so will bathtub with water.
mod6: but, eitherway, i happen to like these fuckers.
asciilifeform: cat is a useful and ornamental animal
asciilifeform: i cultivate them wherever i live
mod6: they are amazing hunters.
shinohai: Yeah I have a cat I adore, jut those feral ones that tear up stuff
asciilifeform: i cultivate those specifically.
shinohai: One cannot simply make pets of them
shinohai: Or perhaps asciilifeform has method previously unknown to hoomans
mod6: one cat that used to be an "outdoor" cat in my radius would bring me mice like everyday. i felt bad because i couldn't bring him one. :/
asciilifeform: my method is to not demand anything of wild critters
asciilifeform: let'em be, enjoy watching
shinohai: Enjoy watching what, my garbage strewn all over driveway?
asciilifeform: shinohai: if you feed'em something nice, they won't look for garbage.
shinohai: Here kitty, kitty. Come eat this nice steak that asciilifeform paid for.
shinohai: You no longer must eat garbage!
asciilifeform: lel
asciilifeform: a dose of kibble is a few cents
shinohai: I tried putting the housecat kibble out, still they persist.
asciilifeform: what's in your garbage anyway
asciilifeform: raw fish?
shinohai: Perhaps tuna cans at best.
asciilifeform: so feed'em the scraps.
shinohai: I'd be more than happy to feed the lot of them, tuna, kibble, whatever.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you'd be fuckinbg happy in istanbul.
mircea_popescu: i think 1mn people of the same mind live there. i've never seen as many cats.
mircea_popescu: prolly 1bn cats live within a 200 mile radius
asciilifeform: meow!11
mod6: meow is right
mircea_popescu: on the upside, pigeons aren't much of a problem
mod6: lol
asciilifeform: can't picture a rat lasting long there
mircea_popescu: yeah, they do, because they gang together in wet spots
mircea_popescu: cat's aren't that persistent.
asciilifeform: hm interesting
shinohai: Anywho, please don't think I'm evil because I suggest a varmit gun. I do love my cat because no other good reading companion.
phf: they literally build cat houses in public parks with elaborate architecture, i've seen four or five of those
mircea_popescu: we think you're evil just for sport.
mircea_popescu: phf ah, right, you been there. tell 'em about the catmania!
phf: but on the flip side every side street smells like a russian apartment complex back stairs
mircea_popescu: myeah.
phf: they address their cats "citizen cat" in turkish
asciilifeform: lol phf had same back stairs i did apparently!
mircea_popescu: or they sold same vodka
asciilifeform: ahahahah
shinohai: lolz
mircea_popescu: you know the joke with the assburning btw ?
phf wants to hear the joke with assburning
mircea_popescu: in this alternate universe, the comrade general secretary of the central committee of the romanian communist party, comrade nicolae ceausescu isn't shot
mircea_popescu: but instead just sorta... sent out to bum the rest of his days
mircea_popescu: and he's kinda depressed, and haunts this lowest of the lowest dive,
mircea_popescu: where this one eyed lame bartender asks him religiously what he wants to drink ? vodka ? samogon ? gasoline ? solvent ?
mircea_popescu: and he picks vodka, gets plastered, goes out and falls in a ditch where he falls asleep
mircea_popescu: a local faggot, seeing the man sleeping in a ditch, pulls down his pants, fucks him in the ass,
mircea_popescu: then when done stuffs a 30 cent bill in his pocket and departs.
mircea_popescu: ceausescu wakes up eventually, rifles own pockets, disocvers money, drags self back to bar
mircea_popescu: vodka ? samogon ? gasoline ? solvent ?
mircea_popescu: drinks another vodka, gets plastered, goes to same ditch falls alseep.
mircea_popescu: faggot fucks him again.
mircea_popescu: ceausescu wakes up again, rifles own pockets again, disocvers money again, drags self back to bar.
mircea_popescu: vodka ? samogon ? gasoline ? solvent ?
mircea_popescu: gimme some of that brandy, this damned vodka's making my asshole burn.
asciilifeform: l0l11
shinohai: >.<
phf: heh
mircea_popescu: (samogon, for the innocent, is a "anything you got" sort of brandy that long predates vodka)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: moonshine in engl
mircea_popescu: i guess. not really the same item at all.
mircea_popescu: http://russiapedia.rt.com/files/of-russian-origin/samogon/samogon_4-t.JPG << this.
asciilifeform: moonshine.
asciilifeform: they have a word for it.
asciilifeform: like prolly everyone.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform moonshine is this tenessee cvasi-whiskey.
asciilifeform: brb airplane
mircea_popescu: (ie, corn or generally cereal mash distillate)
mircea_popescu: heh they give him plane money ? i'd have expected he has to walk. ☟︎
mod6: lol, see ya in 3 months.
mod6: aight, there's another few things this lead to
mod6: i'll have to try again tomorrow. but the site updates are correct anyway.
mod6: this is just little shit like the help menu.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Nah, he'd enjoy the walk until he hit Ohio which would likely make him miss swamp ☟︎
BingoBoingo: Judging by the parts of Chicago alf enjoyed I believe his favorite place in Illinois would be either pinckneyville, Roodhouse, or Benton for their "frozen in time" natures. ☟︎
BingoBoingo: Prolly Roodhouse though.
BingoBoingo: Alf may have to settle for Macomb though for University Library
BingoBoingo: $up felipelalli
deedbot: felipelalli voiced for 30 minutes.
BingoBoingo: alf can at least console himself in having only been to Chicago. Now if alf had been to Missouri...

a111: Logged on 2016-05-28 04:51 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Nah, he'd enjoy the walk until he hit Ohio which would likely make him miss swamp
BingoBoingo: Ohio is a shitpit. Now Roodhouse is a happening place with many, many train tracks.
asciilifeform: happening how ??
BingoBoingo: Trains are happening there!
BingoBoingo: It's a railroad town.
BingoBoingo: Mega railroad there
asciilifeform: we have trains here..
BingoBoingo: Not like roodhouse does.
asciilifeform: and i need this for..?
BingoBoingo: Gossipd over freight car graffiti
asciilifeform: hobo chalk!
BingoBoingo: seriously
asciilifeform: sorta existed already
BingoBoingo: Fine, apparently the pale zimbabwestans aren't for you. Maybe Cairo, Illinois is you town.
asciilifeform: what's in there?
BingoBoingo: Has historic buildings. Black people abandoned by Whitey.
BingoBoingo: Also riverboats for Gossipd on the water.
asciilifeform: jazz black or crack black ?
asciilifeform: lol going by ftmeade
BingoBoingo: BOTH!
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It's like James Lafond presents baltimore in minitature with all the James Lafonds on strike.
BingoBoingo: Fun times.
asciilifeform: smoke crack from saxophone??
BingoBoingo: Nah, they are more segregated than that.
BingoBoingo: Makes East St Louis look like 1600's England. BUT one of the better functioning cities in the state. Even has massive floodwalls
BingoBoingo: Because two Rivers want to erase it.
asciilifeform: i met a gurl who used to live there. disrecommends it even to visit.
asciilifeform: st louis i mean
BingoBoingo: You just have to stay south of Delmar and you'll be fine.
BingoBoingo: Mega Zoo
BingoBoingo: As in Cats and bears zoo, not James Lafond zoo though there is that too.
asciilifeform: neato
BingoBoingo: Cats and bears zoo in stl is free, which is much cheaper than Lafond zoo in stl
asciilifeform: dc zoo also phree
BingoBoingo: DC Zoo has less real bears. Panda cows don't count.
asciilifeform: iirc last one croaked here
BingoBoingo: St Louis also has a miniature Yugoslavia in South City, Mega recommend.
asciilifeform: it is funny, theoretically i could live in these places now.
BingoBoingo: And yet swamp and USG
asciilifeform: hey last i heard usg flag was flying in these lands also.
BingoBoingo: AHA, but in Stl you are a short drive from places Legit USG battle flag flies in the Ozarks. Where War of Northern Aggression is still active.
asciilifeform: lolwut
BingoBoingo: Also very large feral cats are seen occasionally
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Not everywhere surrendered in 1865.
asciilifeform: lolk
BingoBoingo: Says the person who was surprised by girls in Chicago having faces.

vc: mircea_popescu: a guy named kakobrekla queried me telling me this is a scammer channel
vc: and gave me some story about a company called bitbet
vc: mircea_popescu: logs are here, I'm interested in your take: https://spit.mixtape.moe/view/b6b45e94#Gd9Ijg33PbVYNDQc9HWvJmCqOWymoXPW ☟︎

shinohai: Reads like concern trolling xD
mircea_popescu: vc not particularly interested. but, some dude contacted me giving me http://somethingsensitive.com/index.php?topic=7688.15
mircea_popescu: the moral being that on teh internet you gotta figure out what to believe yourself.
mircea_popescu: shinohai check out the wonders of fiatism and "modern science" though. the derp never fucking pm'd anyone, ANYONE, about bitbet back when say, i was doing the warren buffett thing. NOW he finds the time and the interest. not before.
mircea_popescu: 90% of everything he said past 12 months he said past 2, but this isn't something to inwardly consider.
vc: mircea_popescu: I'll read into it later, I'm streaming for now
shinohai: I simply make popcorn for the drama parts of logs and move on. Time is too precious a resource to waste dwelling on same butthurt over and over.
mircea_popescu: the drawback of hanging out with people is that motherfucker i caught some sort of doom bug, i'm like coughing and shit wtf.
shinohai: Perhaps some samogon and honey would sooth the cough.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: pertinently,
