asciilifeform: in other historic lulz, 'In May 1967, "Co$t of Living's" M24-A 20mm cannon vibrated loose causing the weapon to rotate upward and fire into the forward rotor system. The blades separated and the aircraft tumbled to the ground killing all eight crewmembers on board. Then in February 1968, "Birth Control" suffered the destiny of her sisters. "Birth Control" received some bad hits from a gun run and had to auto-rotate into dry rice padd

asciilifeform: pilin' on the crapolade
asciilifeform: anything to keep folks from talking about That Which Shall Not Be Talked About.
mircea_popescu: somehow the "184 servers were probably planted by you on the interwebs" line forgot to be mentioned in response, i assume ?
mircea_popescu: da fuck, you can probably find 100 servers that fedex you banana peels.

mircea_popescu: "Lindsay is candid about how she makes her career choice work. It’s about grafting, and having a heavy social media presence. She runs a busy Facebook, Twitter and instagram page, and has held a Reddit AMA that received 796 comments."
mircea_popescu: 796, you realise. almost enough to be the 3rd elected alderman in shitown stickville.
ben_vulpes: > grafting
ben_vulpes: actual bribery?
mircea_popescu: by now these idiots are so infatuated with their own "SOCIAL MEDIA!!! HUGE!!!" gargle they don't even comprehend numbers. "it's a number, so it's huge, righht ?"
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes i suspect they meant the grift not the graft.
mircea_popescu: kids today, not only illiterate but also deaf.
asciilifeform: iirc we even had this grandiose 796 beat...
mircea_popescu: yes, but we're men with jobs, jerry. and secretaries!
mircea_popescu: "Most cosplayers are shy about revealing their exact numbers, so we sourced some from industry experts. Cosplay Photographer Don McCaskill said that a low day rate is $75 to $300 for a cosplayer."
ben_vulpes did not realize that griftering was a noble calling these days!
ben_vulpes: must be horrendously out of the time.
mircea_popescu: jesus fuck. a set is an hour and a half, and while not the multi-k figures, it still pays 4-500 ish.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes it's an actual professional calling, unlike all this shit. respectable if done well.
ben_vulpes: phf: i will kick your bot over while you're at the burn if nobody else has/will step forward
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: just like scamzoring!
mircea_popescu: nah.
asciilifeform: waiwat, i thought 'cosplay' was a hobby thing?
mircea_popescu: the grift works towards a specified target. scamzoring is just low effort whaling, trying to eat the copepods that socialist state redistribution produces.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so is programming.
asciilifeform: well when pro it is called 'actor' neh?
mircea_popescu: "And a lot of income comes from merchandise sales. McCaskill estimates that “top tier” cosplayers might make around $70-125,000 a year. Breaking this down, if a cosplayer attends 26 conventions a year and sells 100 prints (a low number) per weekend for $20, that’s $52,000 a year. Minus costs (makeup, equipment, photography shoots) that sounds pretty sweet. And this is North America. The Asian market is much larger and s
mircea_popescu: ome of its stars – like Alodia Gosiengfiao (5 million plus facebook fans) might easily pull in a high six-figure income." << THIS.
mircea_popescu: this is it. game over.
mircea_popescu: the definitive statement ; "and this is romania - in moscow they must be having it better!"
mircea_popescu: "tell you what, pack of cards counts 52, so call it 52 THOUSAND. and this is america."
mircea_popescu: somehow they don't even notice this. "why aren't you in asian then ???" "oh, from ohio to la was long enough a trip for me!"
asciilifeform: 'ameeerikka! cocacola, sometimes war!' (tm) (r) (rammstein)
mircea_popescu: if that ever existed outside of local popular imagination, it's long gone.
asciilifeform: it existed on vhs!
mircea_popescu: yeah well the city of amazon alien mutant dinos also.
asciilifeform: that mircea_popescu watched, and asciilifeform watched
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: "Lindsay’s costs are mostly for costumes. Prices vary, depending on complexity. Her favorite costume, Game of Thrones Cersei Lannister cost $200 (and didn’t sell many prints). For this she used upholstery fabric at $30 a yard." << im trying to recall when it was i bought a woman an outfit for less than $200. wtf.
mircea_popescu: what the fuck is going on in this america, they dress out of an hour's work ?
mircea_popescu: what do they do with the other 199 hours in a month
asciilifeform: rent
mircea_popescu: nuts.
asciilifeform: &tax.
mircea_popescu: https://www.twitch.tv/lindsayelyse
mircea_popescu: dude... i'd pay a mn a year to just not be her.
mircea_popescu: wtf, someone somewhere actually believes someone could conceivably want this ?!
mircea_popescu: look at that fucking schedule!
mircea_popescu: is she on tour or some shit ? no fucking rock band made their own costumes out of $200 to go on tour. ffs.
asciilifeform: is this one of those chix who films whole life with webcam?
asciilifeform: incl. bathroom, fuck room, etc ?
asciilifeform: or what am i seeing
mircea_popescu: i suspect she's a super-soft camho. non-nude.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i have nfi, i'm trying to make sense of nonsense over here and it spills.
asciilifeform: i watched many hours of ru blokes cutting metal on youtube, at least i learned sumthing
asciilifeform: (incidentally 0 - afaik - extant footage of a chick doing it..)
mircea_popescu: all i see so far - is that softening the grip on IP is actually more harmful to human life than keeping it tight. this entire cosplay thing exists essentially because the various "ip holders" aren't nearly as vigorous as they were in the 70s (good fucking luck doing "your own version of mickey mouse/donald duck" because "you think you look like them" and then - horror of horrors!!11!!1 - selling fucking tschotchkes)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: l0l! for some reason i pictured them paying royalties to mpaa or the like
mircea_popescu: i think not.
ben_vulpes: bwahaha teh naivte really asciilifeform ?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: hey i am still half an hour into digesting this very idea, of 'pro cosplayer'
ben_vulpes: anyways notion of IP outside of wot and outside of "i will negrate you if you rip me off" is fundamentally broken.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes how about "your parents will lose the house"
mircea_popescu: course with the current derps ... "haha they already lost it - i went to college"
ben_vulpes: in context of fiat enforcement regime or wot?
mircea_popescu: in context of "why there weren't a buncha derpy 20yo chicks running around dressed as minnie in 1976"
ben_vulpes: that's so far removed from sensible contextualization to be a worthless question
ben_vulpes: dude there was no internet
mircea_popescu: yeah ok.
mircea_popescu: so ?
ben_vulpes: ergo no fandom
ben_vulpes: well, "web"
mircea_popescu: and your dad didn't fuck ?

ben_vulpes: i lack the context to understand the link
mircea_popescu: yeah.
mircea_popescu: let's just say the internet didn't invent the fandom. it moreover killed it.

ben_vulpes: point taken
mircea_popescu: marylin monroe ? no, earlier! bettie page ? EVEN EARLIER! mata hari ? EARLIER STILL!
mircea_popescu: they had it in revolutionary france. it's been around for a while.
ben_vulpes: huh
ben_vulpes: what /did/ happen.
asciilifeform: there are still folx ready to fuck the dessicated mummy of mata hari.
mircea_popescu: this trope is older than dirt.
ben_vulpes: what, samantha fox enforced her ip 'rights' and the other girls didn't?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes we're discussing two things. one is the idol, such as the girl herself, corporeal. the other's the ip, such as "princess leila".
mircea_popescu: because of a weakening of corporate grip on ip, the two are mixing, to the detriment of everyone involved
mircea_popescu: is the observation.
ben_vulpes: hm
asciilifeform: what weakening, copyrasty is stronger than ever, mass warez beheading just last week...
ben_vulpes: no more slutty mcsluttersons then because they're all being coy while seeking fame prancing around as fiction characters?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform in your dreams, white boy.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes not even that ; i see nothing here but george costanza's retort to the observation he did no work : "but consider, i am in the smaller office". the chick's not hot, she's average at best. her face's all weird etc. BUT! she makes her own costumes! out of construction paper!
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: just the geniuses who accepted payment via natobank
mircea_popescu: she's ~the chick that gives sorry excuses of teethy blowjobs and buys you beer
asciilifeform: hey it was in völkischer beobachter, must be fact!11111
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: there is still 2 or three years of these wunkderkids for the mpaa to chew through before cockboxmaster or ($seen) Framedragger get their butts off the couch and make a wot-blessed tracker
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes as to the other point - fetishism is still unhealthy. samatha fox was, sex toy or no, still samatha fox. and if someone cornered her in a dark alley and stuck it in her, the rape happened to samantha.
mircea_popescu: but princess leila ? poor her.
ben_vulpes: leila's rape being the ip infringement?
mircea_popescu: do you perceive the difference between "im raping you because i think you're fucking hot" and "i'm raping you because i'm fixated on a character i've decided you represent" ?
mircea_popescu: pro tip : the former don't usually figure in serial killing files. the latter rarely don't figure in serial killing profiles.
ben_vulpes: hm.
asciilifeform: does it make substantial difference to the rapee?
asciilifeform: this why
ben_vulpes: that's kind of where i'm stuck too
mircea_popescu: i think so, yes.
ben_vulpes: maybe the latter is more likely to actually get knifed at the end?
ben_vulpes: by mircea_popescu's claim
mircea_popescu: for one thing. but even without that...insanity is never a good thing in the mix.
ben_vulpes: yeah but homegirl /just got raped/
mircea_popescu: still not the same.
mircea_popescu: i posit a good comparison is "tb patient spit in your mouth. does it make a difference if you have aids ?"
ben_vulpes: what same, few girls conniseurs of the act.
mircea_popescu: "ewww, spit in mouth" "yes, yes... but..."
ben_vulpes: "you got raped. does it make a difference that you were dressed in your leila costume?"?
mircea_popescu: take one single point of reference, i think it works pars pro toto : "She says that entrepreneurs need to have a thick skin. “Just don’t care” is her advice. She says you need to just keep going – remember, the internet is a cruel and malicious place for a girl in a bikini top and elf ears."
mircea_popescu: the previous set were all about "love and open up to the world and blablabla"
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes but she's not merely DRESSED in the costume.
ben_vulpes: what praytell is she
mircea_popescu: nothing. that's the problem. "but the vast majority who have aligned their psychology with this vector will pursue an impossible fantasy at the expense of their labor and their lives." is the ballas quote.
mircea_popescu: there's no difference between girl who's not hot squeaking her way into modelling job because she's willing to make her own costumes, and that misfortunate math assistant professor i mentioned yonder long ago in the logs and alf prolly still remembers.
asciilifeform: aaah

phf: i don't think it's the same beast as openpgpjs, since the later does seem to support keys

asciilifeform: but if you're using a key exported from phuctor, you never need to do this
asciilifeform: (or from sks, or any sane place)

asciilifeform: see, each key is what came out of sks or whoever dumped it in.
asciilifeform: in this case, you can replace the header only
asciilifeform: and it will work.

mats: i wonder how much meth you can dissolve into 240ml of water
PeterL: LD50 about 50 mg/kg, only need 5 g for a 100 kg person, seems reasonable
mats: but how much product was he carrying if it was two 240ml containers?
BingoBoingo: small town "police sergeant" so figure 125-375 kg
BingoBoingo: Oh, different case
ben_vulpes saw tactical suspenders on his ride in the other day
PeterL: about .9 mg/mL, so 216 mg each? seems kinda low
ben_vulpes: subject of "police" and "sergeant"s

a111: Logged on 2016-08-11 20:21 PeterL: about .9 mg/mL, so 216 mg each? seems kinda low
PeterL: but it should be more soluble in acidic solution, so depending on how it was prepared it might be more concentrated than that
asciilifeform: so long as it is in the bottle, and got out
asciilifeform: (consider a bottle of powder, 0 fluid)
PeterL: who is going to claim a powder is apple juice? but yes, would not nescesarily all be dissolved
asciilifeform: fella who would rather croak than go to american jail? will claim.
PeterL: actually, I wouldn't be suprised if meth would dissolve better in apple juice than plain water, so maybe he was telling the truth?
asciilifeform: seems likely that >5g would fit in there, one way or another.
asciilifeform: who the hell would even want to smuggle <5g in a bottle, and why.
asciilifeform: (to sip on the way to work??)
PeterL: right? I guess he didn't realize that it was poisonous in large quantities
asciilifeform: it would be quite fitting if the cartel caught a dea guy, tied him to a pole, and forced to drink whole barrel of whisky
asciilifeform: or coffee. whichever.
PeterL: 6.25 gallons of coffee would do it

mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-08-11#1518539 << 2aminopropane is water miscible ; amphetamine is very slightly soluble. moreover is competitively-soluble with all the sugar crap, so i'd be rather surprised if you can get 5g to stay unprecipitated in a bottle of off the shelf soda/juice/whatever.☝︎
