mircea_popescu: hanno boeck ( http://trilema.com/2016/psa-hanno-bock-still-a-deceitful-shitbag/ ) definitely hoax. turkish "coup", not hoax - major usg.dos success. as far as those go these days.
phf: enough for doom and serial terminal :)
mircea_popescu: call it "we got rid of assad" v2.0 with block chain technologies.
asciilifeform: latest word is, they blew up tr parliament ?
asciilifeform: or sumthing.
mircea_popescu: heh nah.
mircea_popescu: last word is, turkey kinda collectively shrugged.
mircea_popescu: anglo derps keep pushing their usual "the embattled president" and "the military/{insert collective nouns}" etc.
asciilifeform: why would usg wish to dethrone erdogan ? did he threaten to leave nato, or wat
mircea_popescu: he made peace with putin ~3 days ago.
asciilifeform slept through this.
mircea_popescu: this is what hillary & friends at state perceived as their "nuclear option".
mircea_popescu: it's ridoinculously fizzlefull.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform had an agreement over closing nato out of black sea sometime tues.
asciilifeform: l0l! incl ro ?
mircea_popescu: quite possibly.
mircea_popescu: constanta is no match for ru ports ; and turkey holds the straits. strategically the position of nato in black sea is much worse than its generally tenuous standing on land in europe.

mircea_popescu: did ru space have something like this ?
phf: in a sense that it's a catch phrase from media that everyone is familiar with, yes, but i'm blanking on print media, i was not sufficiently someone back then
asciilifeform: my archaeological work turned up no such thing.
phf: i feel like that's more of a su thing, 90s in russia were handheld camera times, so it was more likely someone will start own tv station or try and get a spot on a fringe one like 2x2

mircea_popescu: cheap vinyl too.
mircea_popescu: not like you couldn't have proper thermoplastics if you wanted to. the old item foot for instance is quite resistent to heat.
shinohai: Ihave seen a few space heaters here with thermoplastic cases, but they seem reasonably robust.
mircea_popescu: well nobody forces you to use the wrong plastic for your application, you know.
shinohai: Look t the money we saved!
mircea_popescu: clearly.
mircea_popescu: anyway. the item is made locally principally because i suspect it'd be illegal to ship internationally.
