asciilifeform: re chinese engineering, i had a float valve, of the usual type, in toilet - EXPLODE the other day
asciilifeform: thing was <1y old.
mircea_popescu: uh
mircea_popescu: what was it filled with ?
asciilifeform: filled ?
asciilifeform: it's a float valve. it lives whatever pressure the water pipe supplies.
mircea_popescu: oh i thought you meant the actual floating device
asciilifeform: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/31knpB4IfKL._SY355_.jpg << this.
asciilifeform: the plastic stem ruptured.
asciilifeform: never seen anything of the kind before.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu's knife (i also had this knife) or my saw from 2 wks ago, these made sense, the mechanical forces on the atrocious dried snot from which they were made, were formidable
asciilifeform: but this - is a new thing.
asciilifeform: i suspect that it actually... dissolved.
mircea_popescu: heh
asciilifeform: the wc in the flat i grew up in, back on other side of ocean, was 100+ years old. and had ORIGINAL float when i met it. grandfather - cleaned it. copper thing, ancient with patina, quite functional
asciilifeform: i would bet that it is there still.
asciilifeform: there is no reason for this part to wear out other than on ~geological~ time scale.
mircea_popescu: just about.
BingoBoingo: Did you try casting a replacement out of pewter? ☟︎
BingoBoingo: Possible that mebbe your local water system sucks and the pressure spiked to break the plastic.
BingoBoingo: Occasionally neighborhoods in USia will experience much broken plasic and galvanized material when pressure goes from reasonable 40-90 psi to 140-240 psi.

BingoBoingo: shape to fit with emery, cloth, and patience

BingoBoingo: But if it were a capacitor!
asciilifeform: (and shit in bucket while working, yes)

asciilifeform: life is not long enough to make own valves.

hanbot: asciilifeform perhaps the mongoloids merely sealed your valve completely with their affronts to geometry.
asciilifeform: waiwat
asciilifeform does often wonder whether there exists a black market in old-new stock parts such as toilet valve.
hanbot is having a fit of ignatius j. reilly-isms doubtlessly conjured up by the current trilema rodger telenovella

BingoBoingo: She's got an average face that is disproportionately chubby compared to the rest of her body. Perfect synergy of girls in the audience feel pretty and teenage boys can still get off to the leaked n00dz

mircea_popescu: obviously. it'd be like envying the toilet.
asciilifeform: well it is, iirc, not uncommon symptom of terminal rodgeritis
mircea_popescu: to quote that usg official, "what the azn wants are loose shoes, cheap lattes and a tight pussy to shit in"
asciilifeform: and there are folks who envy toilet before they're through.
mircea_popescu: his objection is that for some reason the toilet in his bathroom keeps overflowing, while it seems to work fine for everyone else.
mircea_popescu: ftr, if this happened to you for a decade straight you'd be pissed off too.
asciilifeform: esp if answer people gave were 'try shitting smaller' or similar
mircea_popescu: srsly.
asciilifeform: 'dear sir pray tell how'
mircea_popescu: the beauty of the guy's work is that it is, in fact, quite reasonable in its own terms.
mircea_popescu: not to mention that impungning those terms is a much more difficult task than average vanilla derp intuits.
asciilifeform: how's that
mircea_popescu: that which lol
asciilifeform: those terms
mircea_popescu: so he says women are items ; and you say women are persons. how do you resolve this dispute ? "obviously" ?
asciilifeform: in the arena, with retiarii
asciilifeform: whereelse.
mircea_popescu: he kinda won that neh ?
asciilifeform: meh, what, 3 knifed and 3 / few 100s kills/shots?
mircea_popescu: iirc retiarus was pitched against one secutor.
asciilifeform: 'win' 'd be if he, say, sarinated some lizard graduation, etc.
mircea_popescu: well what sort of contest is this, where you get to decide the goalposts.
mircea_popescu: suppose we run a simpler tiered system : people with his killcount or more may speak against him. seems a pretty reasonable implementation of your "in the arena, with retiarii" idea of adjudication. and he doesn't come out too bruised from it, either.
asciilifeform: it is worth mentioning that i am a connoisseur of subj, since the performance of mssrs. harris & klebold, yet the showing of rodger was so lackluster that it slipped my attention entirely in '14
asciilifeform: but mircea_popescu has point.
asciilifeform: let odin et al judge.
mircea_popescu: yeah, but this leaves a pretty serious hole for the rest of us, who you know, have pleasant relations with women and don't quite grok this "not person" immensity.
mircea_popescu: i'm sorry, enormity.
BingoBoingo: engorgity
asciilifeform: where's the hole?
mircea_popescu: (enormity also means "monstruous nonsense", for the record. even if it's a secondary meaning forgotten on the web.)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is the meaning i learned in school
asciilifeform: if it were 'forgotten' i missed the memo
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform apparently it's "evil" now. whatevs.
diana_coman: hmm, doesn't it break this view of his right at the core when he expects then items to "choose" him?
mircea_popescu: diana_coman not more than the idea of the sword in the stone breaks old monarchy.
asciilifeform: or sea for moses, etc.
mircea_popescu: note that they don't get agency, he still knows how they ~should~ have chosen ; and the objection is they're malfunctioning in their alloted destiny.
mircea_popescu: which explains the complete disinterest in any sort of inductive approach (which is also how he didn't end up one of those long term abduction rapists)
diana_coman: ah, there is that indeed, he uses to choose in a certain way
mircea_popescu: more like "recognize", like they were retina scanners that ceased working.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: abduction rape quite likely resembled actual work far too closely for herr rodger to take an interest.
asciilifeform: picture the fella cleaning a cage..
mircea_popescu: maybe. my interpretation is that he took a very strict view of my earlier stand in our dispute re corectness. it was simply not possible for any sort of result to be obtained through example.
mircea_popescu: his prison is entirely of a deductive nature.
mircea_popescu: the process is evident throughout, "lottery exists, therefore it must have a winner. i am great, therefore i must win it."
mircea_popescu: he may be the last case of an intellect genuinely baffled at the process of lottery.
asciilifeform: this incidentally is not a necessary element. the other rodgers i know of, did not exhibit it.
mircea_popescu: (this was insanely common in, say, middle ages)
diana_coman: ftr what I find more mind boggling is the degree to which nobody around him actually has anything to do really and I mean first his parents; at least from his account all they do is to throw at him money above what he can in fact handle; in one view I could almost frame this as poor kid got thrown into a station so much above himself that the difference between what he *knows* he is worth (nothing) and what he has been forced t
diana_coman: o "want" is too much to handle
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform im not sure his equivalent has yet been produced by his country. he seems quite a brand apart.
asciilifeform: it is common today. i personally witnessed a man having bought an entire crate of tickets.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman you'll be pleased to find no doubt that the enitre population of that part of the world spends all its time doing exactly this :
mircea_popescu: they take money that was thrown at them by idiot barbarians in foreign lands, and wisely expend it exactly thusly.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform was the man personally insulted when he didn't win ? the crate isn't the criteria here.
asciilifeform: not afaik.
asciilifeform: baffled - yes
mircea_popescu: that's the clou.
mircea_popescu: hm.
asciilifeform: but It Was So Many!
mircea_popescu: ah wrong bafflement. need something more like "how dares it!"
asciilifeform: that'd be curtis lemay's 'it won't dare'
mircea_popescu: quite that, yes.
mircea_popescu: imo it's very close to what elliot's been doing.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, the guy with the crate seems to miss the "but I was SO worthy, how did the winning ticket DARE to choose someone else"
mircea_popescu: and very right and proper of a historical aristocrat, at that. like you know, the charge of whatever brigade.
asciilifeform: everett smiles in his unmarked grave.
mircea_popescu: one of, aha./
asciilifeform: iirc he had a daughter, who built & fired an everettron.
asciilifeform: i always picture her as a great beauty.
asciilifeform: (but in actuality afaik she was a hobo and probably won no beauty contest, but there is little record)
diana_coman: still, there are in fact inconsistencies in elliot's narrative: one second he's fighting off those boys in the truck (even with a knife!) and the next second he flees because one (ONE) boy...shouted at him
asciilifeform: diana_coman: 'unreliable narrator'
diana_coman: and for all his supposed knife, all he does is to pour coffee or juice on people, I mean seriously
asciilifeform: who even knows if knife incident happened.
mircea_popescu: nah, this is how undisciplined boy behaves. he has about three seconds of bravery until norepinephrine is metabolised.
diana_coman: myeah, doesn't sound likely
asciilifeform: though he did stab a bunch of ??? in the end
asciilifeform: so there's that.
diana_coman: similarly one second he is supposedly totally and absolutely disgusted with his father (ftr I don't know who wouldn't by the sounds of it) and the next second he makes friends again because... he has been asked to by his nan
mircea_popescu: actually, by and large men are very much like fizz in soda. which is why the practice of keeping reserves in military conflict. after the first wave, fresh fighters can utterly wreak havoc on the other side.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman he sounds like he just wanted the money.
diana_coman: he certainly wanted the money (well, any money) but to me he sounded more like he was in fact searching very much for someone to finally tell him what to do
mircea_popescu: i dun see that. you mean, "what to do" as in, how to arrange the curl on forehead so girls finally behave properly ?
diana_coman: well, that is what he would have answered if you asked him, certainly; but in practice it seems more like what to do: get back with daddy, go to that college etc
diana_coman: he actually keeps saying he wants someone to take care of things, of him etc
mircea_popescu: mayhap only a woman would see that in there. i can't readily discern what part is in the painting and what part is in the natural "i'll change him" eye of the beholderess.
diana_coman: I don't think it has to do with changing him
mircea_popescu: how then ?
diana_coman: what change? he finds it too much to actually be in this nasty "unfair" world, he wants someone to make him a little bubble at least to keep it all away
mircea_popescu: like a... harem of devoted slavegirls ?
diana_coman: I suspect he would find *that* too much too
diana_coman: more like his "happy" childhood days as he says it himself
mircea_popescu: the minor tragedy of this major tragedy is that he would really have been very happy with james. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: there's such a great novel in there...
diana_coman: he begs his mother to get married to a rich guy to ...save his (elliot's) life
diana_coman: and he even directly says that she should put out with whatever because ..him; and she just...refuses; nothing else; wtf
diana_coman: at 20 yo no less
mircea_popescu: but you know this is how it worked, and still how it mostly works.
mircea_popescu: woman'd better suck some rich dude's cock so her kids can get luscious brides.
mircea_popescu: IT IS THE LEAST SHE CAN DO!!1
diana_coman: I'm still waiting to get to his view of how they called the police/why
diana_coman: quite curious how he sees that
diana_coman: uhm, by the looks of it so that she can have a shit for a kid
mircea_popescu: ya well
mircea_popescu: male shyness is actually quite common, in all mammal species, and also with womans. if i had a satoshi for every historical case where the poor mother in law had to stick her worthless son's penis into some girl by hand, i wouldn't even be poor.
mircea_popescu: womans / humans lol.
diana_coman: yes, it is common; that still doesn't mean that they shouldn't be kicked to deal with it themselves; but clearly something to be started way before he was 20, there is that
diana_coman: the womans race lol
mircea_popescu: if you do that, they'll jsut gather in some cave / internet forum and bitch and whine about "hypergamy"
mircea_popescu: ie, all the bitchez go to the same three dudes. FOR NO REASON
mircea_popescu: "but your penis doesn't work" "LIFE IS SO CRUEL!!!" ☟︎

diana_coman: bet in morroco he would have had all the caves to "gather" in and saved the shiny paint on that bmw
mircea_popescu: yeah, very ridiculous that he left, it seems to me definite they'd have paired him forcibly.
mircea_popescu: though it goes well with his complete disinterest in you know, a brothel. i suspect even if he had had a "hot sexy girlfriend", she wouldn't have necessarily known it. prolly more hand-in-handwalks than handjobs on his menu.

BingoBoingo: <covertress> i don't know if you've heard or care but, my network was attacked http://cryptohustle.com/krypton-recovers-from-a-new-type-of-51-network-attack << made it to qntra http://qntra.net/2016/08/not-quite-news-roundup-xtend-3-tmr/
BingoBoingo: http://oglaf.com/cheekbones/
asciilifeform fought out-of-control 'green hell' vegetation all afternoon, wishes that BingoBoingo lived nearby, would pay him handsomely to clear the crud away
BingoBoingo: Dd you spray first or cut first? Because if cut first you are doing it wrong.
BingoBoingo would have advised spray with glyphosate/triclopyr mix today. Cut in two weeks, plant annual ryegrass next day, move before ryegrass dies in May
BingoBoingo: for mircea_popescu http://www.jameslafond.com/article.php?id=5113
asciilifeform: seems like Framedragger's log is dead too ?
asciilifeform: stopped at * mircea_popescu removes channel operator status from mircea_popescu
asciilifeform: dafuq BingoBoingo. my front yard is not vietnam, you don't get to poison the trees
Framedragger: asciilifeform: ah shit; it's actually not but it's probably a bug with utc and non-utc time. the latest is at http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160829 - will fix. (hey it was a hasty shit for myself!)
BingoBoingo: Then don't spray it on the trees. And if it gets on the trunk you can rinse it off. You are doing a folliar application. Not a basal application, for that you'r use the triclopyr that mixes with kerosene as a carrier oil. Not water!
Framedragger: (ah. znc is not running in utc it seems, whereas that script is.)
BingoBoingo: Triclopyr with water carrier though also likely sufficient for most green hells. Nice side effect of sparing desirable grasses and browning the bermudagrass weed.
Framedragger: asciilifeform: fix'd. thanks for spotting
covertress: BingoBoingo: thank you for the qntra :)
BingoBoingo: covertress: It's the kind of news that tends to not lead to more news
shinohai: made the not-quite-news roundup :D
shinohai: lmao
trinque: heh, qntra gives covercoin 0 more mentions til death.
trinque: sad prognosis
covertress: BingoBoingo: we'll see)
BingoBoingo: <shinohai> made the not-quite-news roundup :D << Roundup Xtend (TM)(R)!!!

BingoBoingo: covertress: It's not really a recoverable thing. WOuld be more recoverable if reimbursement for lost coins was a challenge or better an impossibility.
BingoBoingo: Rooshite on not dying while making a fortune. https://archive.is/FNUIz
BingoBoingo: WTF is a gratitude list? Moral inventory is far more useful.
