BingoBoingo glad satoshi called it the wallet and not the purse. Imagines "How to cut the purse strings" on Trilema.
mircea_popescu: lol for srs
BingoBoingo waits for inevitable Trilema of that title now.
mircea_popescu: it's evitable.

mircea_popescu: pretty cool

ben_vulpes: and you're doing this with a laser why?
asciilifeform: it was a helloworld!
ben_vulpes: ok ok
ben_vulpes: what /are/ you cutting with the laser?
asciilifeform: this will be described later.
asciilifeform: btw since ben_vulpes asked, what's the cheap way to make gear ?
ben_vulpes: what kind of application?
asciilifeform: because afaik laser is the easiest + cheapest, supposing you can live with material that it cuts
asciilifeform: there are, sadly, not so many uses for wooden or plexiglass gears.
ben_vulpes: well, no, and "depends"
asciilifeform: but if you have gigantic laser..
ben_vulpes: no you stop with that
trinque: lol
ben_vulpes: what application, asciilifeform

asciilifeform: these were 2 in. tall.
ben_vulpes: that is most definitely not a plinth.

ben_vulpes: i'd crucify the architect who tried to tell me that an ionian column could sit aesthetically o 2 inches of plinth.
ben_vulpes: > plinth shop
asciilifeform: no architects were harmed in the making of this production.

mircea_popescu: 1. if you're the sort of man worth the mention in the first place, then you must be able to entertain twelve at the morning's notice. consequently you will need a "great" hall of at least 100 sqm, more like 150-200 where to seat them around a table, + a kitchen half that at least + 2-3 servants so another 50 in living space for them.
mircea_popescu: 2. if you're the sort of man worth the mention in the first place, then you must have 2-4 of what's commonly named "wives", except without the annoying in permanent residence. this means they get a bedroom, and you also need a great bedroom to play with them in, which ideally should be separate from the hall, and they'll want 100 sqm of bathroom including complicated waterholes and whatnot. plus closets and various other hidi
mircea_popescu: ng places. so you're at 3-500 sqm from this.
mircea_popescu: 3. if you're the sort of man worth the mention in the first place, you also engage in some sort of activities. i am not speaking here of an "office" where to sit and engage in bureaucracy, because really, government-made men aren't ever worth the mention. but alf at the extreme could prolly soak up 10`000 sqm, so there is that. call it 500 and let it be.
mircea_popescu: now let's add up : on the conservative side, you need 150 + 250 + 500 = 850 sqm ; on the expansive side you can call it 15`000 and be good.
mircea_popescu: add to this the usual technological 15% (you'll need hallways too, right ?) and suddenly you're talking 1k sqm / 10`000 sqfeet as an absolute minimum. going all the way up to multiple acres of floorspace.
mircea_popescu: what house is "very large" and where is it ?
phf: they don't really know what to do with "large houses" here. i've been to a few, and i can never discern a cause to any of the rooms. it's basically "place we sleep, place we shit and place we hang out", everything else is a filler, a place to put "artwork". on the other hand not even being "man worth the mention" i can put to use very large spaces. own bedroom, shared bedroom, library room, computer room, workshop (i don't have a lathe,
phf: but even electronics equipment takes up a lot of space, not to mention that workshop needs own exhaust, large work surface area, etc.), exercise room, entertaining a company room, guest room, etc. etc. etc. ☟︎
phf: up in Connecticut where they have remnants of that culture still around they actually know what to do with spaces, and it becomes very obvious how even moderately well to do people here are poor. that's how you end up with bathroom serving as a library (because if you play a piano, where do you put a grand piano? if you put it in the library how they do in american beer commercials, the books are going to dampen the sound, you want a ☟︎
phf: whole room for that thing, preferably with plenty of light)
thestringpuller: That's cause Connecticut is the size of a shoe
thestringpuller: iirc to get same sqft I have now in my home town of CT i'd pay 3.5x minimum
phf: outside of reasonably nyc commute range there are parts of ct that are underdeveloped, new haven has the typical ivy arrangement: university controlled downtown surrounded by ghettos on all four sides. you have bridgeport with whole streets "for sale", i don't imagine they are the only places like that
phf: now i grok where you got your airs from, you're a ct person, that explains it :p
