mircea_popescu: asciilifeform thinking about it, it occurs to me that locklin's maudlin piece about reals is exactly typical of him and his "i am not intelligent, nor creative, but here's a bunch of hood ornaments i stole from other people's cars so you may think me intelligent and creative if you've never seen a car before" stance.
mircea_popescu: what an actually intelligent, creative person would have said would have been that the sad, sad excursion in reals on mid-early machines was an utter disaster, the scars of which we may only hope one day to outlive ; that the move away from that stupidity and to purely int machines and appliations is the heart of sensibility,
mircea_popescu: and that finally there is absolutely no reason to implement arbitrary division in the machine, nor does such idiocy exist in nature ; that the correct machine representation of numbers is FRACTIONS not fucking "decimals", and that computers that natively support bignum up to the size of memory and execute gcd in hardware aren't either particularly hard to make nor their absence to date excusable. ☟︎☟︎
mircea_popescu: but pi is not motherfucking "3.141592...". pi is 355/113, or whatever the fuck polygon you decide to use.

asciilifeform: unfortunately this was not practical for 1950s hbomb model and hence we have floatingpoint crapola.
asciilifeform: but yes, exposing native machine fixints to operator is lunacy.
asciilifeform: their only purpose ought to have been setting address bus for mem access.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform orly ? do this experiment. "has wasitline" is defined as " waistline < (tits + hips) / 3". pick up a tape and measure!
mircea_popescu: i suppose alternatively it could be "waistline in human females goes from 22 to 24 inches", if you want an absolute value. the problem is it'll admit all sorts of nags + most children. this is a debatable stance.
mircea_popescu: o btw alf you ever saw http://trilema.com/2011/biroul/ ?

mircea_popescu: it's ever fascinating what the internet knows or doesn't know.
asciilifeform: 'Pig farmers use halothane cones in swine yards to expose piglets to halothane. Those that die were MH-susceptible, thus saving the farmer the expense of raising a pig whose meat he would not be able to market. This also reduced the use of breeding stock carrying the genes for PSS.' -- pediwikia

asciilifeform: 'swat' originally referred to 'special weapons' but is also a very pointed double entendre , 'swat, like fly' - which is all that the lone unorganized malcontent with pea shooter is. insect, effortlessly crushed by gestapo.
shinohai: I remember having a chuckle this Halloween past, a few stores had child size swat outfits to dress kids in.
asciilifeform: hitlerjugend.
asciilifeform: on the other end of thing, police firing ranges now have child-shaped targets. someone found that most n00bs hesitate when shooting children and this obviously will not do!
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform needs be reminded of http://trilema.com/2015/strategy-for-the-antisocial-struggle/
asciilifeform: aha.
asciilifeform: swat was the usg answer to ^
mircea_popescu: well no, swat was mostly the source of bodyes for bags there.
mircea_popescu: iirc it was 2/3 of the coupla dozen dead.
asciilifeform: why would usg care how many bystanders are bagged?
mircea_popescu: we're not discussing bystanders.
asciilifeform: modern cops have proper armour.
mircea_popescu: "proper armour" is like "battleworthy aircraft carrier".
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu himself linked to perfectly usable coats hat stand up to 7.62 fmj.
mircea_popescu: so you don't fire 7.62 fmj. you fire he/incendiary.
asciilifeform: what to shoot them with? crew-served aa gun ?
mircea_popescu: yes.
asciilifeform: ahahahahaha sure.
mircea_popescu: it omes in .5 caliber you know.
asciilifeform: why not with hbomb while yer at it.
mircea_popescu: there's a reason we like the de. get a decent tungsten/zirconium powder mix, glwa.
asciilifeform: wake me up when mircea_popescu is airdropping these goodies to supply partizans in usa.

mircea_popescu: or more generally : there is no stable solution in war.
asciilifeform: there is stable solution in pig-farmin' tho.

mircea_popescu: these people came up with the brilliant idea of mounting an autocannon in lieu of a proper cannon on a tank chassis. which is dumb enough ; but... instead of a belt feed, they came with the even briliant-er idea of having it manually loaded, with 3 round clips.
mircea_popescu: this is a tracked autocannon with a 6 round burst!
