mats: i suppose the one interesting thing from the confirmation hearing is the stated intention to put the National Guard and various branch Reserve components in a state of readiness as it was in the decade following 9/11
mats: which makes sense, they've proven their effectiveness especially as DoD's operational tempo continued to go up in those years

mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes i have words from mp's free critique services : 1. too big font, too much whitespace => way too few words in right column ; 2. single utility column => too much scrolling to get articles ; 3 no good structuring of history (and i dun care about your categories enough to want them listed) ; 4. bad idea to put whole article in archive listing, because then you have to paginate the months which defeats the whole point
mircea_popescu: of having an array (which is what "archive" means, it's not a fucking list)
mircea_popescu: http://cascadianhacker.com/2016/02 << check out your pagination (i'd show you exactly where but there's no way to select position in text ; scroll down to first place where there's a hash)

mircea_popescu: and in other things you had nfi about, "Northern Light Group, LLC is a company specializing in strategic research portals, enterprise search technology, and text analytics solutions."
mircea_popescu: and in other lulz : the news on china today is : the guardian pretending like china's telling trump what's what ; fox news pretending like china's telling trump what's what ; abc online sanely representing the situation ; cnn pretending like china's telling trump what's what ; nbcnews pretending like china's telling trump what's what ; washington post pretending like china's telling trump what's what in new words rather than
mircea_popescu: by copy/paste like everyone else AND SO FOLLOWING.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile "trump is with putin". why, because he gets in the way of the fake news being with china ?

mircea_popescu: This is unlike any inauguration we’ve seen,” said Ben Wikler, Washington director of the progressive group MoveOn.org. “We’ve never seen a counter-inauguration that dwarfs the crowd at the inauguration itself.

mircea_popescu: well logically, wouldn't you go hold your inauguration in either a) the state where you got the highest % or else b) in the state where hillary got the greatest margin below what she expected ? say something like "there's some people in this country who think they're better than everyone else, and i don't want to hang out with them"
mircea_popescu: maybe send pence's secretary to send your regards to the washington thing and thatssat.
mircea_popescu: why even fucking entertain a bad restaurant where the waitresses (with singer-songwriter aspirations) and busboys (rappers!) didn't even vote for you ?
mircea_popescu: fuck you washington dc, i get 4% of the vote you get 96% income slashed off.
mircea_popescu: so as per a) it'd be west virginia (dude got 68.63% o.o) or else the 3rd district of nebraska. as per b) i guess pennsylvania. hold it in harrisburg ftw.
mircea_popescu: in any case the DC must be strangled, wtf is this, 90% hillary ? really ? that's the deep reason for all the fake news, all the unemployable idjits working as "staffers" and moonlighting as "journalists".
mircea_popescu: coupla hundred thousand dorks who imagine dc is their own personal github, to write "codes of conduct" for and come up with "restricitve political stances" and whatnot.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it was ~90% obummer, iirc, also
mircea_popescu: yeah well, look at the results, they go 60/40 to 40/60. the 90/4 thing is an outlier, evidently it'll ahve to be crushed.
asciilifeform: not for the reason mircea_popescu suspected tho. being a city, in usa, it is mostly black, and they vote the democrat ticket.
asciilifeform: bmore, et al, similar.
mircea_popescu: the ~only way a "professional" bureaucracy may survive is if it has no particular strong preference.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nobody in the 250k dc residents who vote there are slaves, gtfo. it's 100% middle class jewish with unwarranted aspirations and a drug habit.
mircea_popescu: the pink collars vote in maryland or wherever.
asciilifeform: they don't operate by voting, no. they bus the inner city professional sad sacks 'helpfully' to the polls, and let'em know for whom to vote.
asciilifeform: y'know, just like in 1860s with irish.
mircea_popescu: there is some substance to what you say in the sense that it gains like 10k per year.
asciilifeform: fwiw the practice is conspicuous enough to be visible to the naked eye.
mircea_popescu: but it was under 50% white in 2011 for the first time, mind.
asciilifeform: (there are ads everywhere re 'we will help you get to the polls!' etc)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: bureaucrat caste swelled under obummer, while the train system declined. so a decision was made to clear out some 'habitable' zones for'em in dc.
mircea_popescu: myeah
asciilifeform: this led to cries of 'oh noez, racists retaking their historic motherland from diversefolx' etc.
mircea_popescu: in other lulz, "A Robert Emery 2007 report found that about one-third of Washington residents are functionally illiterate, compared to a national rate of about one in five."
mircea_popescu: stalin would not be impressed.
asciilifeform: this btw is very low bar. it means: they cannot read even street sign.
asciilifeform: nor fill out own welfare form.
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: and it also hides the fact that half of those under 30 aren't qualified to be dressed in public under the "one in three" all ages bs.
asciilifeform: dunno, under 30 the rotgut hasn't kicked in yet.
asciilifeform: so maybe slightly less vegetable overall.
mircea_popescu: nope.
mircea_popescu: o look, the wikipedia article on "white flight" manages to somehow be all about "environmental racism" and other bullshit.
phf: the whole point of "no child left" is to skew literacy rates through standardized multiple choice. "by the end of this course you will recognize the words dog, cat and food. this will also be in the test"
mircea_popescu: yes, but it also produces a 90% majority of people who nevertheless can't "influence the elections"
asciilifeform: phf: dog training for people, aha.
mircea_popescu: somehow the idiocy of self-hat-stealing is never evident. and it's not just a matter of politics. single-wife marriages are generally exercises in "trying to keep the woman as stupid as possible". why, exactly ? not like she's not your woman, if you make her dumb who the fuck is going to defend you when you run into a guy with a dozen women and a fleet of battleships ?
mircea_popescu: you don't fucking want to gain approval in the herd at the cost of diminishing herd quality. who the fuck runs a herd like this!
asciilifeform: folx who think their 'mandate of heaven' is a permanent fixture of the universe.
asciilifeform: that's who.
mircea_popescu: somehow exactly nobody in the idiocratic party stood up at the convention and said "the reason we couldn't get our girl elected is that for 30 years while we had the resources, we squandered them on sucking black dick instead of spending them on whips for the same blacks"
asciilifeform: notion is that it 'could not possibly matter' whether half of usa can or cannot read, because it isn't as if chimpanzees will learn to make jets.
mircea_popescu: it has to be mp in #trilema, there's nobody among all those according-to-them important thinkers to have added these twos together.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the bankruptcy of this approach would be evident to anyone functionally literate. or for that matter vaguely numerate.
asciilifeform: recall the old observation about how 'communism must expand and destroy healthy tissue, or die' ?
mircea_popescu: same thing with fucking apple, "we'll make tools that make the users dumb but happy". really ? and who will defend you, when the guys who made their users smart but uncomfortable come seeking your head ?
mircea_popescu: dude they don't have to be stupid just because they're stupid.
asciilifeform: europe was (theoretical) threat, so now it will be converted into exact copy of usa.
asciilifeform: with ~50% violently illiterate halfwits, etc.
asciilifeform: and real estate racket in the now-so 'valuable' exclusion zones.
mircea_popescu: i very much doubt it needed any help with that ; by churchill's time england was entirely that already. started in manchester cca 1800s.
mircea_popescu: at a time the usian methodists etc were trying hard to resist that tide all over east coast mill towns
mircea_popescu: what with all the nunneries.
mircea_popescu: phf it's interesting how un-alphabetic their approach is, also. "you will learn these three hieroglyphs ; and shame on mp for using longer words than 4 letters, it's not really writing when you do that!"
phf: "multiple choice" is sop for everything here
mircea_popescu: i can 60% a 4-choice test on any topic in klingon.
mircea_popescu: so can most everyone.
mircea_popescu: worst fucking cypher ever.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: at one point they tried to abolish the obviously-comical 'multiple choice', in favour of... worse thing, can you picture:
asciilifeform: machine-scored freeform essay !
asciilifeform: (i shit thee not)
mircea_popescu: actually (evidently nobodyu's done this, because hurr, experts, hurr, cryptographers, hurr durr) but it would be amusing to run simple word length averaging on random selection of multiple choice tests, see how often you can crack it with no other measure
mircea_popescu: "we created ai that can pass any college exam. it... counts letters."
asciilifeform: aaactually
asciilifeform: this was done for the old entrance exam ('sat') in 1990s, and turned into a 'THEY dun want YOU to KNOW!!111' b00k, and fixed.
mircea_popescu: heh
mircea_popescu: i take the nobody back then. impressive enough.
asciilifeform: in the old dayz, there was a somewhat more 'turkish' system in usa, when the snake had not yet shed its vestigial legs, and 'merit' still had to be faked into existence for the children of the anointed.
asciilifeform: so the exams had 'magic tricks' built in, like this.
asciilifeform: then -- fixed, because nobody gave any longer half a shit about exams.
asciilifeform: 'holistic', see, admissions, nao.
mircea_popescu: holy sticks.
asciilifeform: 3 types of meatstock are bred for the college racket in usa: the slum bunnies ('diversity admit', they bring in usg payola), the eloi (actual future mandarins, small numbers, they zuckerberg around, you will find'em on rowboats, yachts), and the peasants (most of the chumpers. their purpose is to service nondischargeable debt for the rest of their natural lives.)
phf: missing the quarterbackers from your list
asciilifeform: where i went, they were mostly in first category.
mircea_popescu: hey, for as long as the fathers of peasants buy into the nonsense dissected in http://trilema.com/2014/a-practical-exercise-for-people-who-cant-afford-airfare/#selection-89.0-93.622 that arrangement is sustainable, i guess.
mircea_popescu: phf i was thinking, wtf, college for any other purpose than slut magnet ? where's he live.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: they fall into the 3rd category -- they exist so that male chumper has TWO sets of nondischargeable loan to service, vs 1.
mircea_popescu: us college exists principally to make young women comfortable with being naked in public and such basics, as far as anyone can tell.
mircea_popescu: nudist beaches would do ~same service, but whatevs.
asciilifeform: i am looking at this farm through the lens of the farmer, rather than the cow.
phf: well, umd campus is large, and tech buildings are, as is usually the case, are in the remote corner. you have to track all the way past the student center, to the other side, where poliscy and sociology are
asciilifeform: to the cow -- yes, farm exists to supply tasty snacks and warm place to moo.
mircea_popescu: and "communications" and "arts" and "multimedia" and "drama" and the list goes on
mircea_popescu: wtf is communications anyway.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: phf is quite right, the place was astonishingly physically segregated
asciilifeform: almost like 2 separate unis.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: intro to journawhoring
phf: right, there's a very distinct continuum, with compsci building on one end and rhsmith of business on the other
mircea_popescu: label entirely bereft of any meaning, it's like going to cooking school called "alchemy"
mircea_popescu: and the ~only "media" they study in this "multimedia" is youtube shorts.
mircea_popescu: which are worse than ads ffs.
phf: actually, this is pretty hilarious. because you can walk a reasonably straight line and get: compsci, electric engineering, chemistry, math, student center, political science, cultural studies, arts, business buildings in that order
mircea_popescu: and where's the best parties ?
phf: left of the line
mircea_popescu: immediately outside campus ?
pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: yup, ready to rock in 60 mins for the auction.
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski nice, your stuff is all laid out for you.
pete_dushenski: cool thx
phf: left of the line it runs on campus housing, the three bars where everyone gets shitface and then sororities (i suspect fraternities are also there, but no idea)
pete_dushenski is such a noob at eulora...
phf: so yeah, it's immediately outside campus
mircea_popescu: is the "charitable" pretense that was going on in the 90s still going strong or is it starting to go away ?
phf: "charitable" pretense?
ben_vulpes: and in other ai herpderps: https://www.inverse.com/article/26054-google-home-bots-falling-in-love-on-twitch-is-the-best-romance-of-2017
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: ack
mircea_popescu: you know, sororities supposedly existed not to get the members deflowered but to "service the community"
mircea_popescu: so it kept pushing teenage ditzes into old people's homes and whatnot.
phf: i'm pretty sure that whole angle is never going away, at least it was as strong while i was there. one sort of complements the other.
pete_dushenski: http://www.tinhouse.com/blog/45211/ask-a-librarian-whats-the-strangest-thing-youve-found-in-a-library-book.html << heh, can BingoBoingo top a whole cooked shrimp ?
mircea_popescu: at some point in the 60s/70s it was mostly about personal achievement
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski well there is that nice video of the girl sticking dildos inside etc
mircea_popescu: anyway, this shift from "spend your free time getting better and let the others acquire that as best they can" to "spend your free time giving yourself for free and forget improvement" is very much the reason america even needs to be made great again. r&d ended up cut out of the loop as it were ; who wants the time of some dork "as she is".
mircea_popescu: "somebody who has no other options, evidently" "oh yeah, and HOW did they end up not having other options ?" "ikr! SOCIALISM FOREVAR!!1"
phf: umd is a public school, there's not necessarily "tradition of excellence" when it comes sororities/fraternities. it's the least common denominator herding kind of thing, with corresponding activities
mircea_popescu: but in the late 60s there was :)
phf: i have two or three friends who were proud of their ivy fraternities, and i checked, umd had a chapter for one of them, stopped qualifying sometime in the 80s
phf: other two would never even consider
phf: so it's a divergent process, you have mediocrity taking over, while excellence retreating
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: retreating where exactly is an open question, but sure.
phf: i want to believe that there's a dusty attic somewhere on upenn campus, grandfathered in of course, with a library and a secret liquor store, where boys wearing ascots meet to discuss their progress at becoming men
mircea_popescu: this somewhat in the vein of "i want to believe these eggs weren't actually shat by the dumbest thing on the farm."
phf: actually funniest "charitable" pretense is some years ago kate michaels raising money for underprivileged kids so that they can play polo. every time i remember it i crack up
mircea_popescu: cargo cultism all the way.

Framedragger: unrelated to anything, just a nice writeup by djb about his conference trip to st petersburg: http://cr.yp.to/conferences/russia.html
Framedragger: " The phone rang shortly after I drifted off. No more jet lag; I jumped out of bed and picked up the phone. Now I'll find out who's been calling, I thought. ``Would you like beautiful Russian sex girl?'' a woman asked. ``No, thank you,'' I said. Couldn't you just hand out forms at the front desk? I thought. I went back to sleep. "
mircea_popescu: who doesn't want beautiful russian sex girls ;/
phf: the kind of people who think that the only better way to say no to a beautiful russian sex girl is to do it over a form
mircea_popescu: for srs.
Framedragger: that's a good point. why not a good late night chat with beautiful russian girl.
mircea_popescu: i certainly spent way more time chatting with whores than fucking them. no regrets.
Framedragger: another film recommendation by association - documentary: "whore's glory" - by one glawogger (who died from malaria or somesuch while filming in liberia or somewheresuch), a bunch of interviews with whores in bangladesh, thailand etc
Framedragger: nice rapport, nice camera work.
mircea_popescu: well an interview may be too formal, but yeh
Framedragger: (it's more like them just talking in the film, i must say it is really a nice watch)
Framedragger: some of his films are available as media download on archive.org iirc

indiancandy: no one asked u sir

shinohai: I do wonder how some of these girls keep their sanity. I guess I count blessings I have no boobs and merely offer behind the scenes services.
indiancandy: i couldnt use toys
indiancandy: i duno i see some girls
indiancandy: with big totys
indiancandy: toys
indiancandy: im like wtf
indiancandy: everyday
indiancandy: omg
indiancandy: nasty
mircea_popescu: and with the one word per line!
asciilifeform: 'Even in March 2016, when a full IT modernization had already started (see below), Obama said that the pop-culture depiction of presidential-grade technology and the real world are far apart: movies and TV shows "make it appear as if I’m in the [Situation] room and moving things. [We] have half a finger print and a half an hour later I’m tracking a guy on streets of Istanbul. Doesn’t work that way, no. Sometimes I’m just tryi
asciilifeform: ng to get a connection."'
shinohai: One girl I know on xhamster has a regular that plops down 1000 tokens at a time for her to print out pics of him and piss on them.
shinohai: had to help her set up a goddamned printer.
ben_vulpes: how much does a token cost?
indiancandy: not sure
mircea_popescu: lmao
indiancandy: 500 is 45pound
indiancandy: is xhamster good
indiancandy: i might join
shinohai: 1000 tokens is roughly $100
mircea_popescu: actually at 100 bux or whatever this isn't the worst way to get at people. have woman print dude's pic, take a shit on it, then keep rickrolling him with the video.
mircea_popescu: cost of a half-decent meal.
indiancandy: idont doo insertion
indiancandy: or anything
indiancandy: i rarely cum
indiancandy: jus tease
indiancandy: make 2000 a month
indiancandy: for few hours a day
indiancandy: not bad
shinohai: The only old part for me was translating filthy messages from English to Spanish and back again
mircea_popescu: indiancandy wouldn't you be better off if you simply went to every house in london, knocked on door, asked them if they want to move you in the closet and use you sexually for a coupla grand a month ?
mircea_popescu: you could call it "au pire"
indiancandy: ahahah
indiancandy: yea
indiancandy: i dont like physical
indiancandy: i havent had sex in 4months
indiancandy: im off it
mircea_popescu: you don't eat beef, don't take the cock, what do you do, play wow all day ?
mircea_popescu: if you shot a guy they'd put you away, in ~the same conditions, for free. why even hussle, just go shoot a neighbour and be done.
indiancandy: i know im weird
indiancandy: i go to the gym
indiancandy: thats fun
indiancandy: and sit on mfc
indiancandy: i have social anxiety
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that;s the lulziest part of it all, that somehow "nobody knows" just how naked the emperor is. meanwhile i have better connectivity than obama, and i mean that literally. and from a security perspective foremost.
indiancandy: hate meeting new people
shinohai: you met me today :(
mircea_popescu: you don't count cuz online.
indiancandy: exactly
mircea_popescu: (+ 2 2) shinohai

shinohai: What is Bitcoin? DO you manage websites and accounts?
shinohai: I heard you know where to xchange tokens for giftcards,coins, etc
mircea_popescu looks... social media bots handled 41k messages this week.
shinohai: Any mixture of that
mircea_popescu: shinohai sounds like a consultancy biz right there.
asciilifeform: 'President Obama talks on the phone with president Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine about the Malaysia Airlines plane crash in eastern Ukraine, July 17, 2014. Here we see the new phone in gray, and as Obama's finger is covering the red light, and the green light is off, it seems a secure call.'
shinohai: Yeah I think the universe has been trying to tell me to work with camwhores ever since I found trilema
mircea_popescu: there's worse bunnies.
shinohai: I'd really like to have a few nice girls for more long-term profitable relationships. I hate the one-off emails.
mircea_popescu: that's where the problems begin.
shinohai: I still do work for Paula sometimes, she's great to work with.
mircea_popescu: postmodern age === age of insanity. average individual is incapable of either forming or maintaining relationships much like a decerebrated pigeon is incapable of building a nest.
mircea_popescu: which one was paula ?

indiancandy: social media is terrible

shinohai: twitter is a very, very useful hunting ground if you collect .... slaves indiancandy
mircea_popescu: o ?
indiancandy: is it how
indiancandy: teach me o wise one
shinohai: What's my end if I turn you into a successful findom queen? I mean, that's quite a lucrative gig I'd just be turning over ....
mircea_popescu: anyway, there's definitely a living in... well, pimping the girls, i suppose. most cam talent is utterly incapable of about half the stuff it has to do and entirely unmotivated to do the rest. if you do for them what shop management does for mcdonalds ewelets a la http://trilema.com/2013/compliance/ you can in principle increase their income 10 to 100 and eat half to two thirds of that.
