asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i must confess that i do not see the appeal of poisoning my hedges instead of trimming.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: You should have referred to them as hedges. Instead you called them "green hell" and as you live in a swamp I assumed the worst.
BingoBoingo: Something like vine honeysuckle, pokeweed, or ivy
asciilifeform: these also.
BingoBoingo: Well pokeweed demands and responds to glyphosate, or repeated applications of diquat. Other beg for triclopyric death, accelerated by snergy with glyphosate.

Framedragger: and (seems so far) zero comments about subject matter "studied" at "college"
Framedragger: really, dafuq.
Framedragger: oh btw, saturday night while walking around town (vilnius) with two other peeps i stumbled into a scene:
Framedragger: kinda scrawny guy running not far from us, a cop chasing him from a distance. guy turns a corner, then suddenly stops, turns around, throws his hands in the air, and maybe thrice shouts clearly: "i'm sorry", "i yield". we wait.
Framedragger: cop arrives, shouts something like (i think) "where's the watch?!!", there's maybe half a sec of a pause (guy's arms still in the air), then the guy is thrown onto the ground, cop takes out a device and tazes the fella who in turn bellows in pain. i start filming (but all too late as it is with these things).
Framedragger: cop then asks for "reinforcement", we wait, another cop arrives, and they take the guy away, in handcuffs.
Framedragger: we consider, then put a can of beer left in the bag somewhere in a corner just in case, and proceed to the police station to file a complaint because why the fuck not.
Framedragger: arrive at small station which is nearby. a kind of kusturica scene unfolds: the victim of the robbery - or a friend of the victim, it was not ever clear as there was too much shouting and the guy was drunk - sits at a desk. three cops in the room.
Framedragger: three of us enter and my friend asks the cop behind the counter whether it would be possible to get a complaint form and file a complaint regarding police behaviour / misuse of force.
Framedragger: the cops react slowly and uncertainly; not so with the poor fella sitting and obviously overhearing. "dudes! you what - what the fuck now. i was *attacked*! five hundred euro watch! [something, etc.] and you want to *defend* this guy??"
Framedragger: no we don't, this is a separate matter, [interjections with drunken shouts], the guy was arrested after all [interjections], the arrest was improper, etc.
Framedragger: meanwhile the most senior cop is chatting with my friend who has trouble discerning words due to said shouting. at one point i hear "wasting our time" (of course). the youngest of the three cops there comes to us, says "men, thank you very much for your help", and kinda extends hands to push us away (but no physical contact).
Framedragger: my friend continues to chat with the senior cop calmly. said cop asks "so did the guy really not resist [as in, maybe he did resist a bit]" - "no he really did not resist". ok.
Framedragger: i recognize the middle of the three cops there who is (of course) the dude who did the tazing. he tells the shouting poor fella to calm down and that "they will change their mind when this happens to them". then grunts something and is dissatisfied obviously.
Framedragger: meanwhile the fella in question starts saying "he was too *tame*", and (sic) "in soviet times the guy would have had it so much worse!!" (with glee, etc.) (i don't know, this is kinda kusturica-like to me)
Framedragger: the fella then approaches us (and my friend in particular who is insisting on raising a complaint with the other cop), half a metre now maybe, and says "you take your watch off", "what are you thinking defending him", etc. the cops slowly react by gently pulling the fella away. not without a pause first
Framedragger: finally the senior cop says that there is a procedure but ideally it should be raised with a neutral policeperson and he'd be "biased" here. he says this can be done online (and it indeed can). after some more back and fourth and with the fella still full of angst we decide to file the thing online and bid goodbye.
Framedragger: ;;later tell phf you may consider https://www.scaleway.com/pricing/ instead of digitalocean, or at least give it a try as one of them "bot mirrors" that you'd mentioned. there "BareMetal" (didn't try) and VPS (down below - works as advertised, no formal benchmarks tho). cheap.
gribble: The operation succeeded.
Framedragger: (they're part of online.net, their peering is decent (though i've not used them much) http://map.online.net/ )
mircea_popescu waves at Framedragger
mircea_popescu: GET A BLOG, sinner.
shinohai: lel
mircea_popescu: :p
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: i think i'm finally... about to... get the point ://
mircea_popescu: lol.
mircea_popescu: in other lulz, the story of poor covertress is something else. so the woman comes here to you know, interact with the republic on her own terms. because she's a woman and a person ("an officer and a gentleman"!) and therefore may even have her own terms. everyone may! what's this, rape ?
mircea_popescu: then the republic proceeds to tell her the future. just like that, nude. but she's too busy keeping up the pretense of existence to notice this. besides, who's ready to interact with such ontologic monstrosities ? really, immediate access to fate, this is a thing ?!
mircea_popescu: then her future comes to pass. and she's still too busy with the pretense to notice. because the one thing usianism does is give people something to be busy with. it's not particularly effectual at the direct effect, you know, doing something for them. but it is damned effective at KEEPING THEM BUSY so they don't notice. which is... just as good ?
mircea_popescu: they're not, technically speaking, other lulz, but aaaaanyway.
shinohai: señor popescu is lulzy on blogotron
Framedragger: she does seem insist on some form of deliberate unconciousness huh. the words of the people telling her things just kinda wash away
Framedragger: this particular type of lack of self awareness in a broader context of "where am i" really ties well with the elliott dude, i dunno, some kind of deeper similarity imo
Framedragger: s/insist/to insist/ && s/unconciousness/unconsciousness/ i hate typos
mircea_popescu: Framedragger there's really very little optionality involved. everyone has to approach everything on their own terms ~because that's all they have~. only god and anthropologists can approach things on THEIR own terms.
mircea_popescu: take the general "entrepreneur", take paul biggar as a much better example. the kid is definitely intelligent. he wants to be an entrepreneur. which is a word, which has a meaning. he proceeds to usianize. this FAILS TO DELIVER, but a decade later he is STILL doing it. and apparently hasn't noticed ANYTHING about any of this. why not ? ☟︎
Framedragger: false belief in existence of optionality of how to approach things "on my own terms", i guess you could say?
mircea_popescu: maybe.
Framedragger: (in unrelated lol, a remittance solution / bank transfer service just emailed me with the words "Yeah! We’ve just sent your money!" in the subject line. i dunno, something about the tone resembling "fuck yah bro i just finished the vodka!!" doesn't inspire confidence)
mircea_popescu: it's more than that. it's also a lengthy list of "technology". it goes like this : "to make the earth banana shaped, buy this and bury it in the desert. then the next full moon measure the parallax of neptune with this tool. then depending on that paralax go into any of these states...." and then there's an endless list of further instructions.
mircea_popescu: basically they can keep busy forever and never notice they're not doing anyting.
mircea_popescu: the usg invented the non-halting program.
Framedragger: heh! usg is undecidable. and keeps giving its people tools to try more things
mircea_popescu: yep
mircea_popescu: and i can try to breach it any way i want. trilema is full of it. there's a "oh, you'e in online marketing ? here's how i got millions of ''clicks'' worth whatever you pay for them, free". mayn't notice. "can't say nigger ? here." mayn't!!11 "oh you think so and so about education/rape/whatever ?" MAYNT!!111
mircea_popescu: there's at least two dozen articles on trilema of which any single one would be sufficient to end the world as it is among a thinking set.
mircea_popescu: i have no idea how one can seriously bayesianize after http://trilema.com/2016/multivariate-calculus-for-experts/ for instance.
Framedragger: trilema as tool to cause epilepsy in dogmatized "free democratic" people does seem to be a thing, hm
mircea_popescu: BUT! the dissonance field is strong. safely keeps each egg slowly rotting by itself in its own wrapper.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger watch that not one single luminary of the "modern democracy" derpage is going to engage the elliot story. there's at least a million of these "officer & gentleman" idiots who think themselves intellectuals and with something relevant to say, and you know, understanding of nature and society.
mircea_popescu: but all that is predicated on never actually engaging the real problems, of course.
mircea_popescu: ah da fuck, log is dead ?
mircea_popescu: STILL ?
shinohai: bwahahahaha
mircea_popescu: so how am i going to read it and reference things now.
shinohai jhvh1 lurks
mircea_popescu: phf is out of the fucking band.
mircea_popescu: shinohai you got it to !~ yet ?
shinohai: no i decided to vacation too. mine bitched too much
mircea_popescu: sigh.
shinohai: lobbes wins on that count
mircea_popescu: Framedragger did you have a working log thing ?
trinque: before we go reimplementing bots the rest of our lives, remember that I published one that logs
Framedragger: everyone's on fuckin vacation it seems
trinque: writing $seen for it is trivial.
mircea_popescu: i'm gonna have to fucking change all my references on trilema AGAIN ? what the fuck already.
trinque: I'd prefer just feeding phf logs in some manner
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: i have the web side of things, more or less, though it *was* a quick hack. http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/today ; you can select ranges, too, like http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160829/from:15/to:26#15
mircea_popescu: no dude no more of these quick hacks sorta-kinda-i'm not really involved bs.
Framedragger: yeah giving phf logs from multiple places and having a mechanism for this would be nice
mircea_popescu: wtf is wrong with you people.
Framedragger: hey i wrote this for myself for when phf is out in his desert ;)
mircea_popescu: naturam expellas v, tamen usque recurret.
mircea_popescu: it is the nature of the boy "interested in computers" to no do anything useful with his hands, what.
trinque: http://trinque.org/2016/08/11/logbot-genesis/ << speaking of v
shinohai: pogotron is capable of hosting bot + serv logs
trinque: I did not take this on because phf volunteered his thing.
mircea_popescu: are you aware that this inane behaviour is why everything you don't like about the world ? this is why you don't get the same tax breaks as actual professionals. this is why the entire field is dominated by "management" that pisses on your heads. this is ALL OF IT, here. right fucking here.
mircea_popescu: "oh i can't commit because what if i did!"
mircea_popescu: trinque can ye get a www log thing that actually works ?
trinque: yup.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: did you try mine though? the web side of thing. it *does* work, fwiw
mircea_popescu: please do. i'd like to read Framedragger novella.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger i won't try yours, because i just said i'm not interested in this "it works, no promises though" approach to anything. it's not a way to live. i'm not committing downstream to your napkin doodle.
Framedragger: here it is "range-selected": http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160829/from:76/to:90#76
Framedragger: god damn it. i shouldn't have said "hack". should have said "elegant in its simplicity". 'cause it's simple. and i do fix bug reports. o well
mircea_popescu: well ?
Framedragger: antiadvertised myself
mircea_popescu: the point is, do you have any self-respect or don't you ?
Framedragger: sure i do.
mircea_popescu: alright, then i'ma inhibit trinque for the i dunno, fifth time and give your thing a try.
mircea_popescu admires trinque for his mental resiliency.
Framedragger: look, it sounds like an excuse, but i assumed that phf's btcbase will remain the canonical viewer. making extended effort at redundancy *is* sometimes inefficient, even if educational.
mircea_popescu: i assumed so, but i've had it with this "oh, you can't process the logs when you have time to process the logs because logviewer software is made by argentina."
Framedragger: fair enough.
trinque: Framedragger: what are you using to feed it?
Framedragger: trinque: znc (znc's logs)
Framedragger: super simple. no db
Framedragger: works, tho
mircea_popescu: and if you lose connection ?
Framedragger: znc autoreconnects. empirically tested
mircea_popescu: god damned it, now i'm gonna have to fish out old logs for a yet another time ? grrr.
trinque: I propose we get a domain going elsewhere which we cname to whichever current log viewer.
trinque: logs.trilema.com ?
Framedragger: but if people decide to actually use it then i should implement "previous day browser / buttons" asap because the current (choose from list of days) thing is really too simplistic.
mircea_popescu: heh. yeah, see ? exactly what i said above : this is why management pisses on heads etc. because the only solution to unreliable knaves is centralism.
asciilifeform: <mircea_popescu> god damned it, now i'm gonna have to fish out old logs for a yet another time ? grrr. << the cure is that infrastructural items oughta be published.
mircea_popescu: trinque published.
asciilifeform: incl. old logz balls, viewer, etc.
asciilifeform: aha.
asciilifeform: trinque had the right idea all along.
Framedragger: would be nice. talking of it, makes sense to put more CNAMEs under .trilema.com.
mircea_popescu: the curse is that "software boys" dun like to read.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger it makes absolutely no fucking sense whatsoever.
mircea_popescu: if i was going to play with little plastic figurines i'd buy those!
Framedragger: well, just as an alias system, no implied centralization?
trinque admits the knaves growing up is the better case
mircea_popescu: Framedragger the universal problem with the alias system is that no two identical things exist in this world.
asciilifeform: if phf had published his thing, it ~might~ suddenly be conceivable that his eternal bug would be fixed. and at any rate a spare bot could be fired up on short notice.
trinque: at any rate, I'm going to dedicate my time to peeling the wot mechanics into their own lisp system, such that I can publish that next, rather than log viewer. that is, provided Framedragger delivers.
mircea_popescu: trinque sounds like a plan.
Framedragger: okok, enough with the not-committing shit. i agree, and apologize for getting on people's nerves, possibly. i will extend the thing's features. complaints and requests welcome
mircea_popescu: Framedragger does your url system follow the same structure as present log ?
Framedragger: you mean permalinks to any given irc line? no. i don't know how phf's numbers work but can probably dig it out
mircea_popescu: god damned it. so really, aliasing won't fucking work here no matter what.
Framedragger: if it's a deterministic system and not based on some internal db id increment thing then it can and probably should be replicated.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger ok, don't bother, i'll just re-redo the fucking references. and you'll have to re-redo them in the log itself also. but that'll be it.
mircea_popescu: please make sure that this third is also last time.
Framedragger: alright.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: wait, you mean rewriting references to log lines in your (e.g.) blog? understand, i didn't retrospectively import *past* logs into the viewer yet. (but i will, now.)
mircea_popescu: yes that's what i mean. and yes.
mircea_popescu: i'm not doing it THIS INSTANT, you got a week or w/e
asciilifeform: how long is phf's vacation anyway
mircea_popescu: odds are he's gonna check in about an hour to vacation-ruining news. WHCH SHOULD BE A FUCKING LESSON TO ALL!!11
asciilifeform: perhaps this'll be enough to cure him of cmucl.
Framedragger: too many parentheses!!! (*ducks*)
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-08-25#1529352 , http://btcbase.org/log/2016-08-25#1529356 ☝︎☝︎
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: should i then proceed to implement the bot-part of the logs, too? if phf's bot part can be reused, then that's great, too. i guess i can investigate
asciilifeform: cmucl is, as i now know, a stinking pile of shit, that pisses away the main upside of using common lisp in the first place: it reintroduces segfault
Framedragger: or if phf wants to handle that part, or w/e
trinque: god damned it
mircea_popescu: Framedragger which bot part ?
asciilifeform: he did ^
asciilifeform: publish a log bot!
mircea_popescu gives trinque more dakka
trinque: dude lets just be the fucking republic of irc bots
asciilifeform: http://trinque.org/2016/08/11/logbot-genesis
Framedragger: i mean, irc bot that *quotes* log lines.
trinque: no shit huh?
Framedragger: trinque: ah fuck, sorry, i'm used to my state explaining what there is in the world, i guess ://
mircea_popescu: http://trilema.com/2011/i-need-moar-dakka/ < there.
trinque: ahaha
trinque: Framedragger: so if you take a look at that there logbot... new logs are shat into postgresql. lines to be spoken by bot are read from another table.
mircea_popescu: the most important point : and if you make changes to it, V THEM
mircea_popescu: and don't even fucking "oh i'll v them later". the whole point of v is to teach you how to code like a sane person.
trinque: right. in this case I challenge anyone to find a need for a second patch on those modules themselves, rather than creating a genesis vpatch for their own module which talks to the db in postgres. ☟︎
trinque: idea is that wotbot functions have a genesis vpatch, google whatever, its own v tree, so on
trinque: they're completely decoupled
trinque: so unless I made a mistake in ircbot (maybe I did) it's *done*
trinque: logbot, idem
mircea_popescu: the strong, quiet type.
Framedragger: trinque: great, and that sounds like a very sane design.
Framedragger: just ftr / in truth, when i mentioned "implementing the bot part", i only meant implementing the particular "cite irc lines etc" functionality on top; because the rest is done. in particular, the best solution (before checking out trinque's) seems to be limnoria, which is an updated and maintained extension of supybot (which gribble uses).
Framedragger: limnoria is written in python. of course there is incentive for teh republic to use republic's own inventions, no doubt.
mircea_popescu: there... isn't.
trinque: there is no incentive for acting sanely here
Framedragger: trinque: thanks and will take a look
mircea_popescu: see line above re centralism.
Framedragger: i mean a simpler thing: if people here trust each others' code more, that's a good thing, and *all other things being equal* (crucial assumption), that code should be preferred. no?
mircea_popescu: but to the more general point, the system provides no incentives for acting sanely for any peculiar definition of sanity, and provides shocking, oversized downside for fucking up. this is exactly as it should be : sanity as an emergent behaviour out of defined limitations of the world. it is exactly opposite of how the empire tries to work, of course, and in the process turns everyone into a version of elliot.
Framedragger: cf. other open sores stuff maintained by open sores people in no-one's wot here.
trinque: no. trust because it's good code, then know who to blame for the good code
trinque: or conversely
trinque: and not trust then get your dick out and dive in blind
Framedragger: right, sure, of course.
Framedragger: aha, a different initial preference, and i see the danger in the converse - sure
mircea_popescu: trinque you're defactoing postgress as data interface ?
Framedragger: trinque: out of curiosity, have you tested how well ircbot reconnects to irc? i see there exists `ircbot-reconnect`. logbot itself only exports that symbol but does not seem to use it itself?
Framedragger: (aha, the reconnect method gets called in a separate ping thread, it seems)
trinque: mircea_popescu: for all my bot functions, yes. this is however why ircbot preceeds logbot. ircbot simply establishes and maintains connection, and one can attach to cl-irc hooks for whatever he wants.
Framedragger: very nice design, from first looks
trinque: Framedragger: when you deploy, disable the sbcl debugger and put it in runit, a process manager
Framedragger: (scratch that comment about logbot, it's not supposed to use it itself)
mircea_popescu: trinque i meant more as a philosophical point than necessarily in this implementation.
mircea_popescu: we will have to have a dxi standard anyway.;
trinque: yes, it's what I use for just about everything I build
asciilifeform: it's the 1 remaining working sqltron.
Framedragger: trinque: i'll test it, cool thanks.
mircea_popescu: let's call this a de-facto postgres-as-republic-data-exchange-interface rfc.
asciilifeform: it's postgres or 'let's now write our own db'
Framedragger: asciilifeform: seconding that. the devs seem to know what they do, too (postgres-hackers is a nice ML)
mircea_popescu: iirc it was vaguely discussed befoar.
trinque: asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform trilema uses mysql, of course. but i'm thinking migrating wp to postgres may actually be a good idea.
Framedragger: does wp *finally* postgres? last i used it i had to use mysql :/
Framedragger: *finally* support, meant
mircea_popescu: Framedragger there's a mp-wp ancient script thing shinohai was massaging.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: i use wp, and have never used mysql, and don't intend to.
Framedragger: ah! nice.
mircea_popescu: all software names should start with my
mircea_popescu: mycrosoft!
asciilifeform: hey, mykotronx.
Framedragger: god damn it. i wanted to check how limnoria does irc reconnect, and it starts out with a nice SupyReconnectingFactory(ReconnectingClientFactory, drivers.ServersMixin). which doesn't necessarily mean a bad thing, but is in sharp contrast to trinque's short code. lol.
asciilifeform: (they made crypto iron for usg, incl. the infamous 'clipper'. but i always picture a malodorous alien mushroom)
mircea_popescu: http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160829/from:51/to:51#51 << o dude nice, so basically instead of a total index you do a day/and-index split so this way these log references will stay correct later too, once you import the past ? not bad.
trinque: Framedragger: cultural superiority.
Framedragger: ikr.
trinque away for about an hour
mircea_popescu: Framedragger oh, you gotta make search box yes ?
Framedragger: ^ regarding quoting log, so btw would anyone *else* appreciate being able to link to *multiple* lines of irc at once? because i really wanted that. you can click on different timestamps to create ranges. http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160829/from:49/to:51#49
mircea_popescu: yeah it's not bad.
trinque: Framedragger: https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.5/static/textsearch.html << re: search
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: yes, very much so, and yes it's just been added to todo list...
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo "limp penis WITH collapsed"
Framedragger: trinque: thanks :) (i've battled with search in postgres and screwing around with indices etc - but will prolly end up asking for advice at some point, cause, you know, i'm young)
adlai: ;;later tell BingoBoingo http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/5105014b-a26e-4a5a-a4c4-4844ea9b9773/?raw=true

asciilifeform: where'd you get the 'waking up' ?

mircea_popescu: http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160829/from:71/to:71#71 << i dunno that most teen girlies have the sense to ask for a fisting.
mircea_popescu: http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160829/from:75/to:75#75 << no, literally, he has absolutely nothing to do with any academic anything whatsoever. back when i was going to [high]school it was considered a waste of your time, fit only for the marginally retarded, to spend your time tickling the tits instead of paying attention in class.
mircea_popescu: yet this kid fails at the fail! he can't even do the thing you're not supposed to be doing because "it's easy, you'll do it later, got better things to do now"
mircea_popescu: http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160829/from:76/to:88#76 << eh he's right. you gotta beat up thieves what.
mircea_popescu: i mean good for you for standing up to things and so on ; but in general seems the effort was misplaced. not like they killed the guy. there are two important strands :
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo "limp penis WITH collapsed" << fck ty fxd
mircea_popescu: one that submission ~shouldn't~ be encouraged. so what if he didn't resist ? fuck him. if you make a difference by "did he resist", the life lesson you teach thieves (ie, everyone poor, which is how this goes) is that submission is a valuable trait. then you get unfucked women and usg-style government.
mircea_popescu: the other is that it is the job of the police to distribute violence. if you don't let them beat up thieves, and cover them in red tape, they'll just get frustrated ; that frustration will keep boiling and boiling and eventually you'll end up with the us situation, which is to say no real cops (a cop is always and everywhere a BEAT cop! that's police work. naught else.) and a bunch of derps hoping to be SWAT. and again you ge
mircea_popescu: t usg-style government.
mircea_popescu: you want neither of these, presumably, so the right move'd have been to cheer the policeman, and insulate him from his boss/derpy kids. ie, what the drunken guy did.
mircea_popescu: the world is SO unfair, but often enough in practice experience unthinking beats naivite even should it be allied with all the wit in the world.
deedbot: http://qntra.net/2016/08/slight-bump-in-bitcoin-network-difficulty/ << Qntra - Slight Bump In Bitcoin Network Difficulty
BingoBoingo: "Do those buildings even lift ? " << No
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: regarding first strand, no objection, in principle. that is, encouraging submission in itself my breed larger problems and usg-like structures. regarding latter, yeah i have a problem with cops as such. knowing that this will only solidify my "wannabe naive anarchist kid" image, i should point out that if we had a more responsible, (actually) individualist and conscious populace, there would be less need to defer violence
Framedragger: the drunk dude would have tried to swing back, and neighbours would have come to help, and punch the thief. i do of course realize (or so i think) the *vast* naivete of this kind of frame of mind, but note that this is possible in some specific communities which take a piss on "global awareness projectz" and just function on a (very) limited geographical scale.
Framedragger: besides, the cops as force decoupled from very shitty state != the cops as they currently exist. i don't trust the fucking state to manage them, and next time i write about how shit it is i don't want to expect a buncha these dudes to break in and "teach me a lesson in being putin spy by criticizing our great country".
mircea_popescu: the notion that "x precondition would make violence less relevant" is exactly equivalent to saying "if we had more pious women we'd have less need to defer to fucking"
mircea_popescu: dude, what ? it's not how it works!
mircea_popescu: moreover, the neighbours do not come to punch people in the street because they have work to do. raising a militia was expensive even in 1700. today it's very fucking expensive. hence the police, ie, standing militia.
mircea_popescu: and finally : your acts as described build towards that future. you HELPED the state gain larger control over the cops at that small preceinct. because now, whenever the state compes up with some dumb shit, the middle cop will be "we ain't gonna do this are we ?" and the older cop, thinking of you sad lot, will say "yeah we gotta, otherwise there'll be some ipad kids in here complaining".
mircea_popescu: generally, thinking back to the whole "giant sitting in chair" discussion of supermarkets - the state always and everywhere tries to drive a wedge between you and its instrument. specifically, it tries to leverage the scale issue (see http://trilema.com/2009/de-ce-nu-mi-place-capitalismul/#selection-49.0-49.163 ) : you are many and impredictible ; its instruments could kill it.
mircea_popescu: what the state always tries is to leverage the impredictability of you to befear its instruments. hence all the charade of "elections". they're not there for YOU to do anything. they're there because a) you're the sort of idiots who would think they're doing something when in fact you're brownian-motioning around and b) this sickening display strikes fear in the hearts of the pretorian guard. who could otherwise easily walk i
mircea_popescu: n and hang the lizards by their guts one day. which they know - from bitter experience, this has happened before.
mircea_popescu: therefore actual anarchism, in the sense of "anti-statism" is exactly not what you do (ie, act in the direction and on the rails the state provides to you for its own purposes), but exactly the opposite : insulate the instruments from the alleged power center.
mircea_popescu: the behaviour is universally called "corruption" in the state-owned press. because they loathe it. but whenever you close an economic circle with the tools of the state against or in spite of the state, you win. which is why i always bribe trafic cops, and don't even live in places where people generally don't.
mircea_popescu: those people are idiots.
mircea_popescu: what you';re stuck doing in those places is what happened to eg poor lawsky, and others : you are stuck proving to the tools that their state can't protect them. which is why the mexican cartels spent a while beheading "high ranking police officials".
mircea_popescu: or as alf put it, "discomfort the comfortable"
mircea_popescu: note that much like the elections, the bribes themselves are a null value : yeah the average american is too fucked up in the head to bribe traffic cops. yet both in america and in india, the same % of gdp travels as bribes for traffic cops. except in india it is personal ; whereas the us derps JUST TAKE YOUR CASH.
mircea_popescu: so : stop looking where the hand points, start looking at the hand's sleeves.
Framedragger: http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160829/from:341/to:342#341 << that's of course a good point - using state's own tools to bring more power to the state *is* lame, and not optimal...

asciilifeform: 'Marvin Heemeyer was a professional welder living in the quiet Colorado town of Granby, just trying to make a living for himself running a small muffler repair shop. Unfortunately, he was also in the business of getting royally fucked over by everyone in town, ranging from the paperboy to the asshats in City Hall who wouldn't compromise with him on some crazy fucking wacky zoning issues he was trying to work out. Eventually, after
asciilifeform: years of petitions, appeals and negotiations that proved about as fruitful as smashing his face into a cinderblock, the bastards at the Granby Zoning Commission basically told Marv that he could go fuck himself gently with a chainsaw. They were going to build a concrete plant adjacent to Heemeyer's muffler shop, cut off his business' sewer line, slap him with a bunch of increasingly-massive fines, and ultimately run his ass out of t
asciilifeform: own on a fucking rail. But Marvin Heemeyer wasn't the sort of mewling pussy coward who was going to sit there and let a bunch of stuffed-suit bastards fuck him over like a little bitch. He was an insane badass motherfucker with an arc welder and a mad desire for vengeance at all costs, and he decided he wasn't going to take it anymore. Heemeyer paid his $2,500 fine to City Hall, scribbling the word "cowards" in the memo portion of

asciilifeform: '"God built me for this job," Heemeyer said in the first recording made on April 13, 2004. He even said it was God's plan that he not be married or have family so that he could be in a position to carry out such an attack. "I think God will bless me to get the machine done, to drive it, to do the stuff that I have to do" he said. "God blessed me in advance for the task that I am about to undertake. It is my duty. God has asked me to
asciilifeform: do this. It's a cross that I am going to carry and I'm carrying it in God's name," he said. Heemeyer's actions were apparently a political statement. In the audio tapes, he states "Because of your anger, because of your malice, because of your hate, you would not work with me. I am going to sacrifice my life, my miserable future that you gave me, to show you that what you did is wrong".'
asciilifeform: and, more interestingly,
asciilifeform: 'Heemeyer took about a year and a half to prepare for his rampage. In notes found by investigators after the incident, Heemeyer wrote "It's interesting how I never got caught. This was a part-time project over a 1 1/2 year time period." In the notes, Heemeyer expressed surprise that three men who visited the shed last fall did not discover the bulldozer work, "especially with the 2,000 lb. lift fully exposed." "Somehow their vision w

asciilifeform: the tracks are the problem. which is why to unleast 100 of'em.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no dude. if he had 20 years he'd have built nothing.
asciilifeform: this also possible.
mircea_popescu: anti-aircraft gimme a break. why not submarine jet.

mircea_popescu: moreover, if your battlefield is ground+air, the weapon suddenly morphs from killdozer to rocket launcher field.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: wasn't speaking of anything complicated, just something to prevent the routine police chopper from taking him out from above like sitting duck.

mircea_popescu: the difference between man, such as heemeyer, and institution, such as "the palestinians", "the government" etc, is that the latter is dedicated to what it could do, and the preservation and expansion of that pretense.
mircea_popescu: whereas man, especially if sane, is interested in doing not in canning the deeds.
mircea_popescu: "the palestinians" don't want to level tel aviv anymore than temper tantrum child wants to stop breathing. they just like to pretend this want to get mommy-intl community to want to spring for a new bmw.

Beautiful buildings are no longer built, just ugly, modern, so-called utilitarian ones, and
