mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah, iirc 30 seconds during superbowl (ie, most expensive) is like a coupla mil.

rarepepeforever: I would like to use one of these but alas NSFW is not allowed currently http://trilema.com/2014/ill-pay-for-your-tits/
rarepepeforever: I'll go with the horse and pyramid then :)
mircea_popescu: what's "not allowed" mean ?

mircea_popescu: so then you just make cards ? and they approve them or something ?

mircea_popescu: juicy.
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski i expect she hates him which is how she got to be a nanny in canada in the first place. "he gets in way of unipolar us world!!" in alt-statement. ☟︎
BingoBoingo: Why can't she hate the previous guy instead?
BingoBoingo: http://oglaf.com/memory/
mircea_popescu: i suppose also possible. but i was guessing pete_dushenski fucks teenaged nanny not you know, 49+
BingoBoingo: Eh, came over a few months ago is still teenaged.
mircea_popescu: oh he only made president in 2015
mircea_popescu: somehow i tohught he was there for a while, but he was just mayor
BingoBoingo: But BEST Mayor
mircea_popescu: aha
mircea_popescu: speaking of duterte : it is quite evident what sort of trumpian "strong leader" china prefers to run its barbaric neighbours. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: the libtards are also evidently aware. that they prefer to then clothe this awareness in the ridiculous "trump works for russia" rhetoric is so so fucking telling in so many ways.
mircea_popescu: for one thing, all their inept rags try to paint russia as a "local power at best", "gdp" of italy bla bla. how, then, is this magical thing possible where they decide who wins the fucking election ? obviously the libtard has a reputation for dealing well with cognitive dissonance, but that they'd prefer this nonsense to actually naming the rapist makes you think they liked the tiny, slanted cock.
mircea_popescu: then for another thing, the mechanism. it's so neatly stupid, with its strict content-and-label disparity, like a retarded kid trying to invent "his own" geography, calling all the items in common geography by different names and that's it.
mircea_popescu: the procedure doesn't evoke thinking, or even aware subjects.

mircea_popescu: dum dum dum dum dum
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform aha. hard to do performant high voltage transformers without coolant ; hard to do coolant under gunfire
mircea_popescu: i suppose as we speak the idiots with the return-fire thingee are pitching utility comps.
mircea_popescu: in any case there's jack shit they can do, "physical security" my foot. the radiators are big by necessity, a hole anywhere counts as a score as much as any other hole anywhere, dude could take them out with a decent scoped rifle from a mile away
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the thing is, this is -- iirc -- 3rd or 4th time since 2012
asciilifeform: btw washington region is a notch ahead, with infinite payola, they have full brickwork, with iron slant vents, around maybe 1 in 5 stations.
mircea_popescu: brick won't do much. all guy has to do is fire a grenade first.
asciilifeform: no grenades yet.
mircea_popescu: it's an engineering nightmare, the gunfire proof hv transformer. much like the helisubmarine.
mircea_popescu: for this and many other reasons "civilisation" is a self limiting disease.
mircea_popescu: stuff like "domestic tranquility", "high density" and "handheld power tools" - pick exactly two. ☟︎
asciilifeform: somehow worked for su.
mircea_popescu: worked until it didn't.
asciilifeform: everything works until doesn't.
mircea_popescu: mno. for instance - 2nd law works until you don't.
asciilifeform: kindergarten thermodynamics.
asciilifeform: fwiw the last few incidents weren't even antitank rifle but ordinary kalash, at ~100 metres.
mircea_popescu: doesn't scale worth a shit either. spend 10k to encase it in metal shell, gunman spends $20 extra for his bullet, you're back to leaking. spend 1mn to encase the shell in brick, gunman spends $500 extra on ordnance you're back to leaking.
mircea_popescu: it's like a power of 2.5 or some shit to your disadvantage.
asciilifeform: as to why, and why, i suggest the armour/brick/whichever subcontractors.
asciilifeform: *who and why
mircea_popescu: you would lol.
asciilifeform: brick isn't wholly pointless, you are forcing the attacker to use a shorter-range weapon with considerably louder/flashier shot
mircea_popescu: none of it is wholly pointless, just altogether inefficient is all.
mircea_popescu: take the matter in the following terms : today you have 10k transformers, doing stepping of 1TW each for a loss of 1MW each. these 10 GJ are being pumped into the atmosphere.
mircea_popescu: tomorrow, you build a six inch brick encasement. the extra heat load due to the added insulation is, say, 50 MW.
mircea_popescu: you're basically operating with 50 extra transformers for no reason whatsoever.
mircea_popescu: gunman-in-being
asciilifeform: why not natural cover, e.g., bottom of a lake. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: because servicing becomes expensive.
mircea_popescu: anyway - the numbers aren't exact ; but the principle is inescapable. the more you insulate the more you pay to dissipate.
mircea_popescu: and in the bad news department, even handgun fire will cut through six inches of brick. a proper assault rifle with AP round will do what, two walls and a sheet of steel.
asciilifeform: at some point they will have to move to 'expensive transformer - under ground, cheap radiator - above'
mircea_popescu: evne then, the hydraulics are vulnerable.
asciilifeform: vulnerable but you can detect hole and shut down.
mircea_popescu: they could detect holes and shoot down as it is. that's the more rational approach, than brick
mircea_popescu: put a pressure sensor
asciilifeform: that this was not done leads me to suspect that these marvels already leak
asciilifeform: from shoddiness
asciilifeform: at 'tolerable' rate
mircea_popescu: anyway. REALLY hard to defend from "hunting rifle". 30-06 soft charge (say like the M2 ball) will cut through 1cm of steel
asciilifeform: btw betcha sewer system would make a workable coolant.
mircea_popescu: transformers are usually found in rural areas.
asciilifeform: the gigantic ones - yes.
asciilifeform: these - put under water.
mircea_popescu: that's the issue - losing distribution transformers is mere nuisance.
mircea_popescu: losing the major interchanges can fry your whole system
mircea_popescu: this is what they're not saying, not that it isn't evident.
asciilifeform: and it is at least part of the reason for the desperately -ev windmill, photo, etc. crackpotteries
mircea_popescu: depends on the design etc. lots of places - including romania - are built on ring pattern interchange. this has the obvious weakness.
mircea_popescu: but star pattern, here as everywhere, is more expensive less efficient etc
asciilifeform: lizards dun particularly care that these can, at best, supply 1% of the current mains current. point is that they cannot be shot out. lizard current - stays on.
asciilifeform: i was looking out of an airplane a few days ago and saw rows upon rows of windmill.
