BingoBoingo: And quality leather workboots cost $400 to $maxint, similar success
pete_dushenski: we're talking dress shoes like the ones i had on today. hugo boss. made in italy. c$700 (~usd$500)
pete_dushenski: work boots will be made in usa or china or hecho in mexico
pete_dushenski: unlikely to get blundstones or whatever from italy
BingoBoingo: Well, who the fuck would want Italian leather boots for working? Italian cows likely reflect Italian people, lazy. The hardworking ones left. What you want is made in US by Mexican immigrants for maximum quality.
pete_dushenski: "waiwut pete paid 700 for SHOES??!" ha. hardly. i dun pay retail for clothes n shoes anymore than i pay retail for mcm furniture. plus, i actually negotiated a 1500 gift card to high-end meanswear store a few months back so had to spend it on schmany attire accordingly.

phf: when i was growing up my parents would by my italian shoes for $200 or so, which was an exuberant amount. i have one pair still. i went hunting for the same kind recently, and not only is it impossible to find similar quality, once i had a friend of a friend recommendation it was in the $2000's. and it's not even proper dress shoes, more of loather kind, with incredibly soft caoutchouc soles.
phf: (i actually don't know if those $2000 ones are even the same, i vaguely suspect it's just a "high end brand" scam)
jurov: My best shoes were adidas zappans, very soft and pliable soles but lasted about 5 years... would hate to buy new ones only to find out they "optimized" them
mircea_popescu: phf it's actually a very smart move, that 200 bucks will both encourage the kid to act sanely, which in itself is priceless, and otherwise cover the ground of a dozen pairs which would have been 20ish each anyway
mircea_popescu: but yeah, turns out this entire "progress" bullshit is not even limited to software.

phf: top kek
phf: in related news i don't understand punkd. it's a very expensive feature phone. yet one of the top FAQ is "how to reset the software when it hangs". i'm using this guy right now, https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-T139-Flip-Phone-T-Mobile/dp/B00387FAC0 it's $30 used (i think it was $25 from t-mobile store, i'm not sure how amazon is selling it for $90) and it never had to be "reset"
asciilifeform: hangs!
asciilifeform: l0l!!
thestringpuller: asciilifeform: i don't want to expose my actual IP to the world, cause...yea. But the only IP i can forward is an AWS one to my house.
mircea_popescu: phf i been using whatever dumbphone i put in the logs last we had this. it's never hung either. or in general done anything remarkable.
mircea_popescu: rather reminiscent of the old spindial phones.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's funny, especially seeing how the addition of soy to salami practiced by the commies was widely unpopular, and a significant case of the revolution.
mircea_popescu: ceausescu got shot in part because of the fucking soy.
BingoBoingo: Ceausescu lacked marketing. 'Murican soy is new age, asian (cool Yoga aszn not dweeby starcraft azn), and hip.
mircea_popescu: they actually tried to market it, believe it or not.
mod6: thanks for the nice titty pics last day or so
mod6: o7
mircea_popescu: their problem was that society was sufficiently connected, and so in spite of the state "empowering" women in their usual way, family endured, even strengthened because of it.
mircea_popescu: they tried to ruin gender relations by forbidding anticonceptionals, but it failed to actually sour men on women or women on men.
mircea_popescu: mod6 :p

mod6: so when you say 'soy to salami', you're saying they tried to make salami out of soy product?
mircea_popescu: there's two kinds of deli products / cold cuts / salami / what you call them.
mod6: yeah, but, holy shit.
mod6: i'd fight!
mircea_popescu: kind one, like the two hundred bucks a kilo soppressata i buy, or the romanian molded horse salami, or etcetera, are actually ~improvements~ on the component meat.
mod6: wow, she's easy on the eyes 'eh
mircea_popescu: this all has to do with http://trilema.com/2016/ferments/ and the fact that rotten meat, if properly rotten, is actually way the fuck better than fresh meat.
mircea_popescu: kind two, however, like spam, or baloney, or whatnot, is simply a technological answer to the "five people want to eat a pound of meat each but we only have six ounces of the thing".
mod6: I love pickles btw. I'd probably enjoy having them every meal.
mircea_popescu: so they add hydrogenated vegetal oils, starch, soy paste, whatever can be found to you know... expand it.
mod6: hmm. ok
mircea_popescu: so you know .salami is great and romanians are huge salami makers/eaters.
mircea_popescu: but like you say, turn it into a scam and they'll fight.\
mod6: yeah, for sure. don't scam a man on his fuckin salami.
mircea_popescu: you know ?
mircea_popescu: it's one of those things where it's hard to check so if you fuck it up you should hang.
mod6: yeah, these are artisan things, can't be fucked with.
mod6: i buy salami like ~weekly. its wonderful. if they started replacing it with some sort of soylent substitute... rage.
mircea_popescu: and in europe, esp central europe (but a generous central expanding all the way into france and northern italy) it's a 10-15 century tradition.
mircea_popescu: so much so that it influences village life, like at pig cutting time everyone'd make their stuff and then they put it to dry in the church bell tower, which was only opened on day x ☟︎
mircea_popescu: stuff like that. a whole culture of cured meat.
mod6: also, i feel like i've got some interesting things to try from the idea of non vinegar pickles.
mircea_popescu: mod6 do your woman(z) make home bread ? ☟︎
mod6: not super often. i do like homemade bread tho.
mircea_popescu: that's the thing. step one in all "proper" ie ceuropean foodmaking is, you must have a room, which a) never freezes and b) bread is made in regularly.
mod6: church bell tower has better air draft/breeze?
mircea_popescu: this selects a mold of the place. then you can start making all sorts of other things without a care in the world. like proper pickles.
mircea_popescu: mod6 it's high enough and easy to lock i suppose were the criteria.
mod6: ahh
mod6: this is instructional. thanks :]
mircea_popescu: :p
mod6: haha, now im hungry. better get some cured meats...
mircea_popescu: backed by the history of skillful women collected in a room, many impossible tasks are trivial. salt pickles a fine example of this.
