mircea_popescu: phf` not that little known, spent half hour trying to syncronize watches with uk resident engineers coupla weeks back
phf`: i'm mostly just find it fascinating how everything is broken in subtle ways
mircea_popescu: lemme tell you a story.
mircea_popescu: so, girl discovered this very promising place. in charge of it, this stunning beauty of an actress/real estate agent. you understand me ? this girl did understand you can't make it as an actress without money, but she didn't go into prostitution, or waitressing, like all others. she got herself real estate firm.
mircea_popescu: she got a nice place on the cheap no doubt -- hey, what else is the point of being in real estate ? -- and spent a year furnishing it into a concept restaurant.
mircea_popescu: she has a kitchen, an art exhibition where a young painter who was not even untalented! was working on his (really, not bad) stuff, a wine whatever, everything.
mircea_popescu: girl does not speak english, did not steal the idea. she came up with it on her own. hired actual actresses for waitstaff, they throw fits and rant around, to the unspeakable confusion of (all other) patrons.
mircea_popescu: pretty sweet set-up, wouldn't you say ?
phf`: it's nifty, i think i've seen variations on the idea, but this sounds like a solid execution
mircea_popescu: ok. now, wanna guess the subtle ways or shall i just say ?
mod6: are the guests somehow integrated into some sort of daily script?
mircea_popescu: mod6 all improv, it's the 2010s after all.
mod6: ahh.
mod6: cool
mircea_popescu: but i belittled and insulted the mousy brunette playing the ocd type, we had a lot of fun.
phf`: i'm not sure how you can subtly fuck up that one
mircea_popescu: ha!
mircea_popescu: 1. the restaurant was unvented. if you went on the loft above of it, you could thouroughly smell it. so would your clothes if you spent enough there -- such as, time for a meal.
mircea_popescu: utterly noob mistake. i've owned restaurants enough to know you build the whole fucking kitchen around the vent, first you put that in then you places the stoves. how's she to know and how's she to guess ?
mircea_popescu: 2. the new-age-y dood handling the wine was offewring wine icecreams. fabulous, really. all vegan, he informed us insistently -- coconut base. they really did taste good.
mircea_popescu: what did he do ?
phf`: opened a bottle, used it a little bit, corked it again, to use again later?
mircea_popescu: lol. no see, he's not fucking braindamaged. he's just excited and means well.
mircea_popescu: he put salt in. chunks, not flakes or anything. i fished out half dozen pea sized rocks of salt.
phf`: ugh, i'm not sure which one's worse
mircea_popescu: i pointed out to him he's not supposed to do that, salt is terrible for your health. he explained it's hymalayan rock salt, has no fluoride, is all good for health.
phf`: ahaha
mircea_popescu: i asked him why he put it in though, he explained "to neutralize the bla bla bla".
mircea_popescu: see ?
mircea_popescu: this is my point, wrapped up : it's not even conspiraci , not in the general sense.
mircea_popescu: it's the well meaning ignorance that conspires to fuck people's shit up.
mircea_popescu: yet another aspect of that endless "your own head is your first and only enemy".
mircea_popescu: subtle flaws, because nobody has any books and the masters all went to boring island and are sitting there fishing all day or i dunno wtf.
phf`: there's too many places to name that fuck up the whole vent thing. there's a small cafe next to my apartment that i can't go to because they don't have exhaust. but i think it's a general "oh we need to cook? i'm going to replicate my mom's kitchen". at least they now all get proper stoves, probably after watching cooking shows where fire goes "woosh" when it's cooking
mircea_popescu: heh
mircea_popescu: moreover, they get proper stoves because they can't get shitty stoves anywhere.
mircea_popescu: that's where the whole "upgrade or die" software nonsense comes from/
mircea_popescu: if the eu hadn't made it illegal, people'd still drive 1950 cars around the eu. like you know, smog filled paris. what, his car did the smog ?
mircea_popescu: but since bad venting you needn't get anywhere specifically, they still have it.
diana_coman knows people who LIKE the smell/to smell of food; I'm quite sure they know also what hunger means - firsthand as it were, even if in their past rather than present
mircea_popescu: if supermarkets offered the old, hand cranked washing machine, there'd be households with the handcranked washing machine. and blogs dedicated to how it's better. and so forth.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman let's distingush "smell of food" as in ie mp cooks for three and "smell of kitchen", as in, restaurant. it's not the smell of any specific food just like the sewer is not the smell of any specific ass. yes some people like some asses, but that's as far as it goes.
phf`: diana_coman: i think smell of food is different in home kitchen vs industrial kitchen like at a restuarant
mircea_popescu: right.
phf`: oils and other particles are carried by constant steam, accumulate on surfaces, start catching dust and dirt particles, etc. it's straight up unhygienic.
diana_coman: makes some sense; to me though "smell of food" is fine as long as it's more like flavour of thing on the plate, NOT smell from the kitchen ; those people like that smell from the kitchen; admittedly it's still not industrial so yeah, there is something there
mircea_popescu: yeah. basically it's large scale fat distillation. might as well sit atop a refinery tower.
mircea_popescu: phf` is there a ru equiv of the "ciorba de spalatoare" ro concept ? dishcloth borscht ?
phf`: ahaha, that's a great metaphor. i think somebody, possibly Gogol had some similarly visceral imagery, but i don't remember it as a phrase
mircea_popescu: eyah, somehow teh socialist masquerading as co-op-ist isn't quite prepared for a) his nonsense to be readily identified, "rock soup, rly?" and b) the obvious "just make sure it's not dishcloth borscht" ready counter.
mircea_popescu: i guess somehow the obvious got unhappened in all languages because why would they wanna think of such things!
asciilifeform: hey, americans rediscovered it : dishwasher ( i shit thee not ) fish.
mircea_popescu: koi ?
asciilifeform: no, as method of preparation
mircea_popescu: (i have azn friend who likes trying to bother me. feigned surprise at how we here in the decadent west let the toilet water go to waste, when we could raise a koi in there. jsut think alf! millions of toilets! tons of carp!)
mircea_popescu: significantly helped by the fact that carp is, in romanian, crap. literally. you can buy "icre de crap" ie crap roe.
shinohai: That sounds disgusting.

mircea_popescu: sure.

asciilifeform: ( leaked slide circa 2014 )
mircea_popescu: eh, tjwatson.
mircea_popescu: wtf is that "us citizens only" bs anyway.
asciilifeform: ad hoc classification marking ( private corp in usa does not use official ones when not working in Official compartment )
asciilifeform: analogous to 'official use only' usg marking.
mircea_popescu: ~equivalent to tumblr ho scribbling "for hot males only" on her snatch pix. rly ?
asciilifeform: all it means is that leak is in breach of nda, but not seekrits act (or whatever they called it)
asciilifeform: and that (theoretically) any middle manager who hooks up indian slave to $project, is to be sacked
mircea_popescu: what, they give usians a nda to sign at birth, along with all the ssn papers and whatnot ?
asciilifeform: ibm employees, presumably
asciilifeform: thing was purportedly an internal doc.
mircea_popescu: lmao, wait, wait, they dun want any actually productive zeks touching it ?
mircea_popescu: wtf, the "this will never be finished" designation ?
asciilifeform: aryans only!!
asciilifeform: fwiw, unlike 20yrs ago, ~everyone who slaves in these corps is citizen, they made it very easy to get
mircea_popescu: afaik
mircea_popescu: course, everyone who is citizen has little interest to actually put in any work, can jsut get the freebies and coast.
asciilifeform: ~all you need is to hang around in usa for 5y, and not in jail
mircea_popescu: ~same as argentina.
asciilifeform: ( in contrast with, e.g., jp, or ch, where you gotta get letters of introduction, endorsement from president, etc. ritual )
asciilifeform: ( in usa you can also pay $maxint and get passport same day. but not really applicable to workerbees. )
mircea_popescu: in other lulz, apparently the last foreigner to obtain chinese citizenship was some russian broad in 1964
asciilifeform: see also thread http://btcbase.org/log/2014-06-19#724294 . ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2014-06-19 02:30 asciilifeform: chinese 'WoT' (like in other asian nations) is very heavily tilted in direction of blood relation

mircea_popescu: but kid needs >1 for the obvious reason.
asciilifeform: also whoever heard of kid ~buying~ slingshot
asciilifeform: did mircea_popescu ever ~buy~ his ?
mircea_popescu: well there is that.
mircea_popescu: what we did was inflitrate army depot, cut off rubber belts off gas masks, attach to wood Y.
mircea_popescu: epic slingshots, prolly drew 50N
asciilifeform: asciilifeform had rubber from tourniquets ( medical folx in family, had ~infinite supply )
mircea_popescu: aaa
mircea_popescu: nice.
mircea_popescu: anyway, reason i didn't buy is because the commies didn't sell. otherwise -- money, had.
asciilifeform: imho boy oughta make things with own hands, when possible
mircea_popescu: tourniquet'd have prolly been even better. that thick orange-ish tube huh ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not so. if you do with own hands whenever possible, how are you to ever meet any girls ?
asciilifeform: 'measure in all things' (tm)(r)
asciilifeform: and yes the orange tube.
