phf`: i have a very what's the word straight? romanian coworker. i like to periodically send some of the things i glean through mircea_popescu about romanian this guy's way. just to watch his reaction.
mircea_popescu: lel
mircea_popescu: there is no romanian in there, though. fat guy is a popular gypsy singer, the ~only actual word in his speech would be "carolina" which is only romanian inasmuch "o iubesc pe carolina, e o fata din carpati, are ochii ca si marea si-i frumoasa ca o stea, o carolina lina lina carolina cha cha cha" etc 30 yo kid rhymes.
phf`: apparently something called manele. i was wondering why it sounded vaguely iranian, vaguely turkish
mircea_popescu: ~because it is.
mircea_popescu: but, since we're doing romanian gypsies : here's what the equivalent of that us army strategist dude has to say about things and matters : http://earonovich.blogspot.com/ ( http://www.cs.tau.ac.il/~eddiea/ )
mircea_popescu: anyone recall the dude ? square jawed dork, committed some amusing points re "interdicting uninterdictable comms" and other "us army ra ra ra!!" lulz.
phf`: i'm going to play this at the office, to confuse both romanians and the iranians https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjLSZ-K0kog
asciilifeform: dafuq is that nonsense
asciilifeform: ~contentfree
mircea_popescu: this is how the civillians think, alfie.
asciilifeform: think?!
asciilifeform: i can't distinguish subj from shannonizer output
mircea_popescu: phf` tbh, there are two items very popular in mp household. 1 is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-unZ6sUEio the other's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ulinu-_FYc
phf`: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXO2QtjixaM
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yet he's ~in charge of the idf sikrit projects to maff and stuff.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: american tradition -- generals who can't count to 7, even moar 'in charge' aha
mircea_popescu: not a general. check out his tau homepage, even has pic.
asciilifeform: 1 level below : are found the folx who can count.

asciilifeform: !#s chowdhry
a111: 14 results for "chowdhry", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=chowdhry
asciilifeform: ^ the prototype for these
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform amusingly, the dude's not even stupid. but this notion that not being stupid suffices to think is not unlike the notion that... well... everything else.
phf`: i'm not even sure my office is ready for this. i kind of want to open a hookah bar with really bad rail drinks and bottle service just so that i can play that stuff on TVs
mircea_popescu: eh, why'd you open something in shittyland. come to cr, open here.
phf`: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTQGNxK7FUE
mircea_popescu: o hey check it out, "rakata" actually caught lexical value somehow.
phf`: it's like a mixture of all the oh-i-remember-this-was-popular chav styles from across the world
phf`: *genres
mircea_popescu: the reason being that there's a whole troop of intellectuals who missed their web development calling and instead of sitting on compuer all day checking out what's new in rust they just collate crap from across the youtube.
mircea_popescu: the piine si pizda crew.
mircea_popescu: very much 90s/2000s item though. the following generation found the normal path to ibm alcatel oracle etc.
mircea_popescu: phf` fwiw styles is actually right. arguaby chavery is a genre.
mircea_popescu: ou sont les mantas d'antan!
phf`: ahaha, computer has been taken over, girl learned a new dance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5VqQjVExTU
mircea_popescu: lmao
mircea_popescu: what is, goat flapper ?
mircea_popescu: the lyrics include gems such as "so the whole world sees you're the most unique" &c
mircea_popescu: uniquated, i guess. what he says dun actually exist.
mircea_popescu: there's also something about 1k hp producing a lot of pleasure or somesuch.

ben_vulpes: god bless mandatory minimums. incarcerate 'em all and let dementia sort 'em out.
mircea_popescu: heh
mircea_popescu: prisons have this very interesting fermentive effect for democracies. basically, it's easy enough to pretend like "our democracy" while the bread's still flowing ; once that stops, as it always does -- suddenly it's impossible for the "our democracy" pretense to insulate itself from the authoritatian restructuring the prison drives into society.
mircea_popescu: maintaining "our democracy" compatible prisons is too expensive ; not maitaining them produces the sops problem, which is a surer "democracy" solvent than austrian painters named adolf.
mircea_popescu: and yes, "democracy" is in quotes because it has no substance, can at most ever be a varnish and no more.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile at the baths, https://68.media.tumblr.com/4a437b867b57301a545f83f9bba377fc/tumblr_n5ewhvgrop1qbszyeo1_500.gif
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i won't be surprised if the prisoners become 'pioneering volunteers' for 'assisted suicide'
asciilifeform: though so far even this obvious pill is ,in typical usg style, being done in reverse -- srsly, they banned smoking in prison!
asciilifeform: ( iirc one d00d even sued, declaring that this ban amounted to an extrajudicial prolongation of his sentence. but unsurprisingly 0 result )

mircea_popescu: usg.nsa business is not the sane.
asciilifeform: the simon and speck thing was egregiously funny because they were published 'for lulz', 'maybe someone will pick up this toy', rather than mandated somewhere

mircea_popescu: obama pretty much nationalized the economy.
