mircea_popescu: she'll prolly lose both + pennsylvanioa, and so...

mircea_popescu: i dunno what they're talking with 87%. unless 99.87% is what they mean.

mircea_popescu: she's entirely out of ammo.
mircea_popescu: also gop swiped senate something fierce.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: also i dunno that the fella goes in ~each day~
asciilifeform: if he does - yes, won't possibly work.
mircea_popescu: the point being that it's not as reliable as car, not even close. if you gotta show up in the morning unexpectedly (meaning, you partied with two hos till 3 am) and then the weather's bad, your survival rate dropped to like 60%.
mircea_popescu: in a car it's never under 99%
asciilifeform: i was actually considering the flying death-capsule for my own arse. because my physical presence in the swamp is called for maybe once or twice in a month, and with many days of warning.
mircea_popescu: liek that may work. if the weather cooperates.
mircea_popescu: but only if. you can't fly those if it's icing for instance. period.
asciilifeform: well yes, it becomes brick.

pete_dushenski: iirc j-lo did a few private gigs for gaddafi. or was that mariah carey.
mircea_popescu: was it ?
pete_dushenski: !~google mariah carey gaddafi

mircea_popescu: anyway - tesla is likely bankrupt by 2020.
pete_dushenski: ^ one of my first 'market reaction'-related thoughts this morning as well
pete_dushenski: looks like tsla shed 2.5% today.
mircea_popescu: if anyone is looking to sell long term puts on the thing, i'm buying, let me know.
pete_dushenski: though all major indeces up >1% overall on the day. quite contrary to all the 'futures' bullshit msm was spewing last night. down '800 points' my left foot.
pete_dushenski: gotta love how vix got crushed today too. down 23% compared to +50% after brexit. markets not so surprised by trumpreich after all.
pete_dushenski: the banks and defense contractors were the largest beneficiaries. most +5-7%
mircea_popescu: hey, banks etc would actually benefit from a delousing.
mircea_popescu: lotta suckers on them since 1990s.
mircea_popescu: anyway, in other tales from the mortuary, who takes over the remnants of the "cathedral" aka democratic "establishment" ? pelosi ?
mircea_popescu: i'm rooting for pelosi, would be the lulz of all time.
mircea_popescu: she;s only 66 so uncharacteristically young, could even run in 2020.
mircea_popescu: ambitious enough, stupid enough, what else is there.
mircea_popescu: oh, also iirc richest woman in congress, worth ~80k btc. ☟︎
pete_dushenski: in other ambitions, just reviewing top search keyphrases for contravex and 'why is zcash crashing' and 'vitalik buterin autistic' are topping the list
mircea_popescu: lol.
mircea_popescu: dude in-system is a fascinating thing. so the guy from above, who does in point of fact understand the situation in the field pretty well, proceeds to reason on the basis of the facts. what's he come up with ?
mircea_popescu: "Whoever takes over what’s left of the Democratic Party is going to have to find a way to appeal to a broader cross section of the country. It may still be true that in the long term, Republicans can’t win with their demographics, but we found out Tuesday that the long term is still pretty far away. Democrats have to win more white voters. They have to do so in a way that doesn’t erode the anti-racist or anti-sexist pla
mircea_popescu: nks of the modern party, which are non-negotiable. If only there were a model for this."
mircea_popescu: dude... EVERYTHING in there is fucking wrong.
mircea_popescu: first and foremost, that the notion white men are going to be washed away into irrelevancy by a flood of brown cunt is nonsense ofthe first degree.
mircea_popescu: the whole fucking point is that people do NOT want for "republicans to can't win with their demo". that's the one fucking point. but he misses it.
mircea_popescu: and then... sexism ? really, that is a thing ? a plank-thing ? racism, that's another thing ?
mircea_popescu: these planks are rotten, holy shit, how can anyone miss this ?
mircea_popescu: forget sexism, it's a non issue. nobody cares, it doesn't matter, it's about as important or relevant as ether
mircea_popescu: racism, ditto.
mircea_popescu: move on to things someone gives a shit about already.
mircea_popescu: "not waking up in the middle of the night to eat six buckets of icecream (aka "Sexism") and never lifting butt of couch (aka, "racism") are... "non-negotiable". if there only was a model to lose weight! hurrr"
mircea_popescu: the brightest of the bright can't see past blindfolds if they were the ones who put the blindfolds on in the first place. so i'm guessing this is the end of bipartisan system, democrats go to hell in a handbasket, which drives gop to split into pro-trump and anti-trump sides, which makes us a 4-way system with the greens or whatever others being the 4/5th.
mircea_popescu: will be interesting to watch us "experts" manage electoral coallitions etc.
mircea_popescu: but then again, this is an unavoidable stop on the maturation trail. like growing tits.
mircea_popescu: ahahaha trump compares rnc chairman to famous triple crown winner (ie, a horse) in victory speech.
mircea_popescu: classy.
mircea_popescu: TRUMP: Thank you very much. And I can only say that while the campaign is over, our work on this movement is now really just beginning. <<< and threeeere it is. new party.

shinohai: only $200!
mircea_popescu: i dont' get it, what's this, "advertisement" on reddit for reddit run as a sort of kickstarter ?
mircea_popescu: "pay us to pay reddit to show you the reddit link you paid us at" ?
mircea_popescu: “I am betting that tomorrow you will reject fear and you’ll choose hope,” Barack Obama said. “I’m betting that the wisdom and decency and generosity of the American people will once again win the day. And that is a bet that I have never, ever lost.” << bwahahahaha!
mircea_popescu: fucking busker.
mircea_popescu: but hey, at least he admits it / has no qualms with it.
mircea_popescu: “Would anyone who isn’t like you have a place in your America, Donald Trump?” Khan asked. “Well, thankfully Mr Trump, this isn’t your America.” << this khan being the despicable shithead who "rebuked" donald trump so that the progre press could pretend like it's outraged that some shithead who spoke out of line got told off.
asciilifeform: lel i am theeeeere
asciilifeform: in the crowd
mircea_popescu: lol ?
mircea_popescu: is md throwing a revolution party / occupy hillstreet ?

asciilifeform: aaaha
asciilifeform: brb.
mircea_popescu: any bare tits ?
mircea_popescu: oh btw : looks like le pen will take france, too.
mircea_popescu: i suppose nigel farage gets crowned as next king in uk and all is well on teh western front lmao
mircea_popescu remembers the days when obama told da to pick up some random hooker turning tricks in hotel, claim she was a maid, have her tell that strauss-kahn assaulted her, then lie about the whole thing so that france would end up with a president the us likes (which, of course, like every other bahamas scandal, backfired miserably and cost the us taxpayer a helluva lot more than the nigger's "education" cost them) ☟︎
pete_dushenski: http://www.cnn.com/election/results/states/michigan#president << priceless squirming from the leftards that couldn't possibly imagine defeat in their union stronghold. these maps don't archive but nor are they changing. yet still no 'official' call on mi or nh.
mircea_popescu: the brits are in a pretty great bind too lol.
mircea_popescu: but perhaps the choicest lolz come from paul ryan - who's now explaining how much the gop owes trump and how grateful they are are - the same man who "reacted" to civil servant manufactured "scandal" by cancelling all his appearances with trump and isntructing the party to not support the upticket.
mircea_popescu: politics eh.
pete_dushenski: ryan : the new kerry. so much flip-flop you can make a sandal out of his leather.
mircea_popescu: well, he's young and other than taking cock he has no marketable skills.
mircea_popescu: so what's he to do.
mircea_popescu: he's congratulated everyone in sight, all the way to the wisconsin police chief.
pete_dushenski: lel
pete_dushenski: i guess there's that or joining the new trumpreich partei
mircea_popescu: i don't think he gets to keep the whip tho.
mircea_popescu: but my dear pete - THAT's what taking the cock means.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-09#1564569 <<=>> "Last night, as returns were coming in, it was when the Speaker;s home state was called that the Clinton side began to be sure that the night for them would end in defeat." ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-11-09 04:26 mircea_popescu: that's it, she's losing wisconsin, and with that the election.
mircea_popescu: check it out, we agreed on so many things!
pete_dushenski dutifully takes notes for the day when he too will seek public office. after suffering brain damage in a high-speed car crash, ofc.
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski i dunno how it goes in canada, but in the us you must be at least 145 yo
pete_dushenski: bwahaha
pete_dushenski: mayor in edm was ~my age when first took office.
pete_dushenski: pm trudeau is about mp's age iirc
trinque: gotta have at least two vids of you plowing a toddler, too.
mircea_popescu: lmao
pete_dushenski: blech
mircea_popescu: https://static01.nyt.com/images/2016/11/10/us/10shock-2/10shock-2-master675.jpg << how is this not a cult ?
mircea_popescu: seriously now. what the fuck is it ?
mircea_popescu: "Asked how they would feel about a Trump presidency, more than a third of Americans said they would be frightened, exit polls found. Among those who voted for Hillary Clinton, the feeling was almost unanimous and reflected a deep divide: 92 percent said Mr. Trump scared them."
mircea_popescu: other than the lulz implicit - let's do some math here. so - hillary won, as the progretards don't fail to mention, the popular vote. hence... 92% of 50.5% = 1/3 of 100% ?
mircea_popescu: where did some of the scared people go!
mircea_popescu: but hey, at least it's only the niggers & leeches who are afraid. generally speaking vermin should be petrified, or else wtf.
asciilifeform: i walked in the, i sheett thee not, protest
asciilifeform: 10,001 'millenial' cunts and cuntettes

phf: "was hangover, didn't submit vote on time, can i submit the vote on thursday?"
mircea_popescu: ahahaha phf has seen these before yes ?
mircea_popescu: anyway, odds are first move of new "unified" govt is repeal of affordable care act, aka the tax-thats-not, aka obamacare. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: ryan moar than happy to, even unasked. trump gets a shitload of stalin halo effect, as it turns out.
mircea_popescu: the trump in being.
