mod6: evenin'
asciilifeform: hiya mod6
mod6: how goes?
asciilifeform: slowly and painfully
mod6: i hear ya.
mod6: workin on ada stuff?
asciilifeform: 0 useful docs anywhere on division in constant time
asciilifeform: grunting it out from scratch
mod6: ahh. ok. yah, i suppose it requires a bunch of on-paper - try it yourself until blue in face.
asciilifeform: worse than that, because it has to be proven to actually work
asciilifeform: as opposed to 'worked on the 1,001 cases i came up with'
mod6: ah
asciilifeform: it boggles my mind that i gotta do this, rather than there being where to crib.
asciilifeform: because this is screamingly elementary piece.
mircea_popescu: hey, at least you don't have to scroll horizontally.
mod6: haha
mircea_popescu: >D
mod6 falls over
asciilifeform: and hey, dun have to hang upside-down, like odin!111
mircea_popescu: as the one, the only, the forever carlin said, "the man himself was philosophical about it : it's that much less skin to wash."
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2014-09-18#834203 << see also.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2014-09-18 19:37 asciilifeform: 'happy is the man who has one leg, one sock doesn't tear, one boot isn't needed.'
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in officeware, https://68.media.tumblr.com/82344367d161785313c37088511fc97a/tumblr_myj5e3Pc6z1qkpun8o1_1280.jpg
asciilifeform: in other near-term lulz, a 'pbot' is in the worx, so that folx can play with various input->output pairs in-chan
mod6: ah, neat
shinohai: implying asciilifeform actually codes in perl
mircea_popescu: nice.
asciilifeform: given line length limit, it will be of limited practical use; strictly educational.
mircea_popescu: i imagine he's gonna use trinque's tree
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform can have it return pastes.
asciilifeform: that'd defeat entire purpose
asciilifeform: which is to have the ins AND outs in-conversation.
asciilifeform: in clickless dialogue.
mod6: are you looking at some variant of mult reduction?
asciilifeform: mod6: not even yet
mod6: or something like SRT with a lookup table?
asciilifeform: only constant-time shift-and-subtract division
asciilifeform: no tables.
asciilifeform: period. anywhere. they are banned.
mod6: aha.
asciilifeform: no if-statements, either.
asciilifeform: basic principle of constant-time proggy
mod6: cool. that's good anyway, we don't need revenge of the floating-point bug.
asciilifeform: same instructions gotta execute no matter what bits are set or not set in the operands. every time.
asciilifeform: sorta elementary.
asciilifeform: ideally we would also be doing all arithmetic ops on a cpu that executes both the op and its exact register-wise bitcomplement
asciilifeform: but sadly i don't have one.
asciilifeform: ( and so, conceivably adding 0 + 0 radiates something different from ff + ff . )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes well, 250 digit numbers then
asciilifeform: all numbers have W digits.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform in principle you could just do mirror ops of all things anywya neh ?
asciilifeform: not same thing
asciilifeform: they gotta happen ~simultaneously~
mircea_popescu: use two cores.
asciilifeform: pc (even multi-processor pc) doesn't give it to you
asciilifeform: because pipelines.
mircea_popescu: myeah.
asciilifeform: ( and you certainly could not do it under any such thing as an os, even if there were no pipeline. )
asciilifeform: on chip level, a non-radiating ALU is quite trivial to make, however
mircea_popescu: obviously, you just build a mirror.
asciilifeform: in each place where you would otherwise have 1 bit register, you instead have 2
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: so 1 is now 10, 0 is 01.
asciilifeform: ( or opposite, dun matter. )
asciilifeform: you also now get carryless adders, for phree.
mircea_popescu: aha. principal advantage.
asciilifeform: if i were drawing up such a thing, i'd even have the sram work in such a way that 10 is a 1 on odd clock cycles, 0 on even
asciilifeform: this'd annihilate such a thing as ram remanance
asciilifeform: (iirc discussed in ancient thread, this method. afaik no one has ever used it, publicly.)
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: pretty easy to implement, also. just make the flip-flop that forms sram cell, connected to clock.
asciilifeform: now you store bit as ~phase~ of the square wave, rather than absolute steady state of the flipflop.
asciilifeform: theoretically power draw of this device will be exactly the same , at all times, as if it were resistive load
asciilifeform: because same number of transitions on every clock cycle, regardless of what it is doing.
asciilifeform: for bonus 'ourdemocracy' decapitation, bake it out of ECL logic
asciilifeform: where transistor is run on razor's edge of saturation at all times
mircea_popescu: certainly worth prototyping at the least.
asciilifeform: sadly not prototype-able at reasonable cost afaik.
asciilifeform: ( you can't do it on fpga. )
mod6: do i follow if i store 10 on rising-edge for odd, and 01 at the same time for falling edge even?
mircea_popescu: every piece of shit intel crapware was prototyped. reasonable cost is an entirely conventional notion. malia obama gets to keep her head for another month, how's that for reasonable.
asciilifeform: mod6: it simply means that you store a bit as ~phase~
mod6: yeah, just was trying to grasp that concept.
asciilifeform: so, e.g., 010101010101.... is a 0, and on this same machine, in parallel time, 10101010101... is a 1
asciilifeform: for the purpose of arithmetic
mod6: ah. gotcha.
mod6: <+asciilifeform> ( you can't do it on fpga. ) << needs actual crystal?
asciilifeform: mod6: needs transistor-level layout.
mircea_popescu: mod6 basically, a digital machine has no real reason to store a 1 as a 1 rather than any other arbitrary time-pattern
mircea_popescu: historical convention no more.
mircea_popescu: storing data xor bus cycle in particular is ~free.
mircea_popescu: and talking of nigger spawn, http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/03/party-girl-malia-obama-freaks-accosts-white-house-correspondent-lucian-wintrich-exclusive-ny-club/
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'reasonable cost' in this context is ' asciilifeform's experimentation budget.' which presently does not stretch to ic fab.
mod6: ah. thanks for the input. this is interesting.
mircea_popescu: there is that.
mircea_popescu: it wasn't done originally because it'd have made core dumps much less readable.
mod6: asciilifeform: someday.
mircea_popescu: but ~nobody reads them anyway.
asciilifeform: ( we had, some time last year, a thread, where asciilifeform learns that a number of 'crackpot' fabs will make you a few dozen dies for the cost of a toyota, rather than aston-martin. but various problems remain -- it typically takes 5 or 6 rounds; and they want nda, and the use of winblowz liquishitware tools, etc, and extensive hand-holding )
asciilifeform: it isn't really much like getting, e.g., circuit boards, made.
mod6: maybe someday nsa makes it's own mgft plant/process, etc.
asciilifeform: market of idiots is not exactly busting down the door to buy sane hardware.
asciilifeform: at this time.
mod6: for now.
mircea_popescu: eh, young lenin was also poor.
mod6: later, they come.
mod6: speaking of which, i have new results to post.
asciilifeform brb
mircea_popescu: meanwhile at the whipping post, http://68.media.tumblr.com/f0d4eb2dbb99fe6d9ddc018774b6b73f/tumblr_n3ubtmX66P1sc3xtso1_500.gif
mod6: Here's the results from the first entropy collection of FG #5: http://www.mod6.net/fg/fg-test/fg5.ent_run1.txt http://www.mod6.net/fg/fg-test/fg5.dieharder_run1.txt
mod6: interesting this time. collected ~1.5Gb. All tests passed the dieharder.
mod6: I'm pretty sure that's the first time. But will do follow up analysis after 3rd run against this 5th FG>
mircea_popescu: ha! nice.
mod6: yah,thanks! this is awesome ftr. having fun doing it.
mircea_popescu: yeah lol
asciilifeform: neato mod6
asciilifeform: mod6: incidentally didja ever get a chance to read fg.v ?
asciilifeform: did it make sense to you, how and why the thing worx.
mod6: i've read through it ~twice. so far, it makes sense to me, but I need a more careful going-through. part of why I'm learning verilog.
mod6: stuff is impressive
mircea_popescu: by the time you're done with logs, you'll have like 5 diff careers mod6
mircea_popescu: in other lulz, qualcomm-apple battle heats up. iphone 8 might be banned from us market &c
mod6: mircea_popescu: aha, im getting an education. trying to relentlessly get better/learthese disciplines
mod6: *learn these
mircea_popescu: on the upside, really can't be fired anymore.
trinque: http://www.houstonpress.com/news/houston-homeless-brace-themselves-as-anti-encampment-ordinance-goes-into-effect-9436174 << h-town heard the republic, is making poverty illegal inch by inch.
mod6: altogether, i'm trying to stay focused on trb too. and learn these other topics as I go.
mircea_popescu: o.O
mod6: some of the topics reach far and wide. gotta stay on task. but always will try to pick up what I can, where I can.
mircea_popescu: sounds like the plan!
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> on the upside, really can't be fired anymore. << probably not. i don't worry about it. if one door closes, another opens. besides, someday not too far off, this will be the thing.
mircea_popescu: trinque teens also can't take gf into woods to fuck her intensively no mo ?
mod6: i've always wanted to do my best, or be as good as I can be at something that interested me. im not as smart or as clever as many, but I put in the work. i find that putting in the work pays dividends later.
trinque: no woods to speak of inside city limits
trinque: plenty of woods with camping outside, which is where anybody camping does.
mircea_popescu: apple story being apple got ftc to sue the chinos, ftc got lapdogs (intel, samsung) to join in. the chinos might actually slap an ic export ban on us.
trinque: this is highway barnacle removal
mircea_popescu: ah ah
mod6: heh 'highway barnacle'
mircea_popescu: should be interesting to see if china permits qualcomm be http://btcbase.org/log/2017-03-29#1633992 ie japan'd.☝︎

mircea_popescu: mod6 i find that the people putting in the work end up actually being the smarter among the many.
mod6: fair enough. there is the separate case of enbracing the beatings too.
mircea_popescu: "move into the slap, baby, move into the slap"
mod6: i told some administrtion people at the mines recently something very much the same.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-16#1656836 << holyfuq trinque , that hobo's bed is bigger than asciilifeform's☝︎

mod6: "I'm here because of the beatings I've taken."
mod6: they just looked at me like: O.O (wtf is this dude on about...)
trinque: nice teddy and errethang
trinque: they also can't block a walkway or entryway to panhandle. next year they can ban the panhandling outright.
mod6: it's different now tho. back in the day, if you did something retarded, you would be dressed-down for your failures. these days, mines are ~safe-spaces where no blame can be placed or else lawsuits.
mircea_popescu: tsk
trinque: I dunno; I worked for folks that had their own lawyers, when working in mines.
trinque: can always drag you through them longer than you can manage.
mod6: i mean, how is one to learn if one doesn't know he did incorrect action/whatevers?
mircea_popescu: the lazy and the stupid ganged together and convinced "everyone" ie themselves that placing blame is bad, evil, counterproductive et all.
mircea_popescu: more power to 'em :D
trinque: I think people vastly overestimate this "the gendercommitter shall sue"
mircea_popescu: trinque people vastly overestimate the importance of social media howling, also. and this is entirely borne out of stubbornly ignoring the numerous cases of it being raped to shreds.
mircea_popescu still chuckles at the "indignant community" back when fetlife turned out to be a shithole.
mod6: ya. i was just talking about this today, in fact. long story, but at the end, he fucked up, and how's he supposed to learn that he fucked up if no one slaps his dick and says "you fucked up, don't do it again" ?
mircea_popescu: nfi.
mod6: lol. indeed.
mod6: mines churning out cucks like Sam.
mircea_popescu: o damn, i gotta pick that up again.
trinque: mod6: you were in new england right?
trinque: iirc
mod6: heheh, i dig it mp.
mircea_popescu: no, mn
trinque: ah maybe that was mats or something.
mod6: trinque: yah, minnesota.
trinque: ah ok, can't say I've been there.
mircea_popescu: me either. most obscure state! but apparently great hunting.
mod6: imagine texas in the summer. then imagine texas in the winter -90 degrees.
trinque: probably has its charm. I like when the environment tries to kill me.
mircea_popescu: keyword being "tries" i guess.
trinque: folks must not go outside; you'd think that'd toughen them up
trinque: yeah, that tornado on the highway recently, good try.
mod6: dang. yah.
mircea_popescu: tornado be like "bitchez, didn't you want flying cars ???"
mod6: haha
mircea_popescu: WELL NOW YOU GOT THEM!!!
trinque: ahaha
mod6: my ancestors lived in a covered wagon for like 2 years.
mod6: (i'm told)
trinque: oh? actually settled the place?
mod6: apparently.
mod6: they came from germany or whatever, bought/steaked a claim; took 'em 2 farming seasons to get enough money to buy the supplies to build the house.
mod6: house is still there.
mod6: O.O
mod6: meanwhile, all 6-8 of 'em or whatever lived through 2 minnesota winters in a covered wagon.
mod6: staggers the imagination - the sheer determination of a generation long since gone bye.
mircea_popescu: well no because back then they had anthropogenic minnesota warming see.
mod6: but shit, i figure, if they could do it, I could do it too. not that i look forward to that, but it's not impossible. hell, it might be downright necessary.
mod6: mircea_popescu: haha
trinque: look if the cows all fart at once it sets off a positive feedback loop
mircea_popescu: anyway, cold hardness is very much developed trait. i think i told the story of the pubescent girls at the black sea playing around in the freezing water like fucking sirens.
mircea_popescu: at the north sea*
mircea_popescu: fucking cape cod style winds, i was cold in my winter gear. they were the color of liver.
mod6: i think you did, ya.
trinque: never jumped in the water, but I've hopped in a few snowbanks naked. it's a riot.
mircea_popescu: snow is not so terrible because very insulating.
mircea_popescu: wet + wind however is how you say death in arabic.
mod6: once, i was walking on a frozen lake. fell through some thin ice (~january-ish time), by the time i walked ~2.2km home, my pants were frozen and my legs were blue.
trinque: ah true.
mod6: like, my pants stood on the own.
mod6: frozen damn near solid. lol
mircea_popescu: no frostbite ?
mod6: probably some. i think i've had it quite a bit. not to the point of decay or amputation or anything. but there've been many times I remember playing hockey outdoors as a kid in 10 or 20 below f weather.
mod6: by the time i took my skates gloves off... feet/hands really painful. i used to put them in very luke warm water to thaw them out.
mod6: feels like your hands/feet getting hit with a hammer
mod6: once you get frostbite, they say that it's pretty easy to get afterwards because your capillaries never heal fully. making you susceptible.
mod6: not a year goes by that I don't read about some person who got drunk, fell asleep on their porch mid-winter, and loses some digits due to frostbite.
mod6: i suppose they should consider themselves lucky.
mod6: anyone else playing with ffa?

BingoBoingo: In other threads completed: The best late model consumer vehicle is likely the pre-2017 model year Honda Rebel. 4-stroke combustion is a bummer to see on it, but air cooled and carbeurated. Better would be humble bicycle with "echo CS-800P" chainsaw swapped in to replace pedals.
BingoBoingo: 5 cubic inches of fury!
BingoBoingo: and automatic chain oiler as a bonus
BingoBoingo: (Primary advantage of 2-stroke motor is lubrication in any rotational configuration such that gravity glove shennanigans need not deprive motor of friction protection)
BingoBoingo: Secondary advantage being exhaust smell
BingoBoingo: Advantage of chainsaw as powertrain is having a chainsaw to clear road obstructions provided rest of chainsaw is kept in saddle bag.
BingoBoingo: Only disadvantage I am seeing here is that reconfiguring chainsaw to be chainsaw instead of bike mover takes time. Time that could be used to clear obstructions like hamplanets had one been simply traveling as a pedestrian with a chainsaw.
BingoBoingo: And unlike turbine, trivial fuel is required to spin up motor
BingoBoingo: In further trivia at apex on technology, chainsaw maker also produces appliance called "Bed redefiner"
BingoBoingo: And still further finds, a cordless drill that might meet alf standards http://www.echo-usa.com/Products/Engine-Drills/EDR-260

mircea_popescu: shinohai its position as 5th altcorn yo. not it's. its.
danielpbarron: the damage from frostbite happens in the warming up. i've had it happen more than a few times where my feet would get cold and then i'd hop in the shower and get that "hit with hammers" sensation. also feels like bones are itchy.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> chainsaw bike eh. why not microwave tv and tower laundry machine dildo, while at it. << Microwave tv would be great for solving problem of people immersed in tv.
BingoBoingo also though laundry machine dildo was already a thing.

mircea_popescu: lmao.
mircea_popescu: and, of course, air india is consequently losing its subsidies, because they'll get hold up in parliament.
pete_dushenski: i dun think so. firebrand indian mp just has to helicopter or drive in car now. it's some fubar shit.
mircea_popescu: i totally would. the name of the game is disproportionate retribution. let your $100 seat savings cost you $10 mn in financing, why the hell not.

asciilifeform: dirigible!

BingoBoingo: But do turbines harness lubricating explosions like wet farts?
ben_vulpes: how about we compromise on a gas turbine powered air compressor backed drivetrain
ben_vulpes: it's the only reasonable thing.
BingoBoingo: Nah, unless it's burning petroil mix, the exhaust won't smell right
BingoBoingo: And air compressor means hoses
ben_vulpes: even if burning petroil, gas turbine will get hot enough to break down the lube oil
ben_vulpes: oh wait we need a total loss lubrication gas turbine
ben_vulpes: could cool it with liquid fuel and recirculate the evaporate into the combustion chamber
ben_vulpes: claaaaasic rocket tech

Framedragger: hm right.
ben_vulpes: will pay for solar panels, community gardens for the poor, and jaeorbs for women/people of color!
asciilifeform: the fritz chip starts from mask rom, the contents of which are unknown (and potentially unique per-batch at factory) and it in fact brings up the remainder of the cpu
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes hey, i have various cos paying 3% of gross in ro. works great for high margin operations.
mircea_popescu: (no, it's not "on top of everything". it's either of net or of gross, your option._
asciilifeform: why would anybody ~want~ to pay of-gross ?
mircea_popescu: because cheapewr.
asciilifeform: how's that work ?
asciilifeform: 3% of X > 3% of (X-y), where y>0, neh ?
mircea_popescu: suppose you have 1mn gross receipts. if you pay 3% of gross, you're paying 30k. if you instead pay 16% of net, you'll have to produce expenses worth 850k before it's cheaper that way.
mircea_popescu: discount cost of expenses is about 6-7% depending, meaning it's not worth it to buy them straight.
ben_vulpes: there is no 'either' on the table here.
ben_vulpes: femfuhrer simply wants 1% of the largest pile in sight.
mircea_popescu: yes, but you were discussing the thing in general, so i gave you specific example of exception.
asciilifeform: if you're , e.g., 'uber', or some other bezzleco, and your net 'is' 0, you pay 0, neh ?
trinque: pdx income tax has been otw since that arts tax thing
asciilifeform: i dun see, still, how %-of-net can possibly be greater or equal to %-of-gross
trinque: asciilifeform: because they can argue a greater percentage of "omg they were just going to pocket it" than of "and we also have to pay things you don't know about"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, but then you have to actually have the expenses. and then the inept game of "oh, disallowed extemption, we decided you owe money retrospectively plus penalties etc"
asciilifeform: naggumization lol
mircea_popescu: and so now you have to maintain accountants + hitmen, and neither one is sufficient, to keep enough pressure on the crown so it can't come up with bullshit.
mircea_popescu: half the time it does anyway.
mircea_popescu: irl, paying tax out of net is a sucker's game. you want to pay the talent out of net, like they do in holyingwood, and the criminals out of gross.
mircea_popescu: but the alternative is to shoot the "democratically elected" and take over. and the sad truth of the matter is that it's actually AN EVEN WORSE DEAL.
mircea_popescu wouldn't take over eg romania if they paid. i can't imagine oregon or w/e is any better
mircea_popescu: though i've not seen the numbers.
ben_vulpes: and he asks why i don't burn down city hall.
asciilifeform: which romania, though. the current demooocracy one, or a re-created 18th c. one, consisting of current minus the moocows (sell to dairy farmers, berbers, whichever specialists)
trinque: asciilifeform: think of the expense of holding that territory, and then you have all these underlings who don't want to pay you!
mircea_popescu: the runway is not worth the bomb, asciilifeform
mircea_popescu: nor is the "person" worth the bullet.
asciilifeform: hm speaking of the bomb, iirc great U deposits in ro
mircea_popescu: myeah.
asciilifeform: if you want to hold territory, i could think of less useful one to hold.
mircea_popescu: 2/3 of ru nuclear programme comes from re quartzes.
asciilifeform: and gdr aha
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i could think of less useful myself, or of more useful also. but i can think of no ~useful~.
mircea_popescu: less clean sewage, more clean sewage, just no potable water s'all.
asciilifeform: i suspect that the 'ju-jitsu' kit, 'club enemy with his own arm', 'sit on river side and wait for corpses to float by', has limitations; and for some things you probably need a physical castle. but then again i'm not in the mircea_popescuation business.
mircea_popescu: anyway. i personally know two ... groups, let's say, that triedf the whole take over game. leaving aside the petty private satisfactions [of jailing the other trailer park trash they grew up with], economically it's been improductive.
mircea_popescu: romania incidentally has a long history of just this, it's called fanarioti period. hundreds of groups over 3-4 centuries did just this, kept taking over because pissed off with insolence of ex crown. discovered worse deal to be king.
asciilifeform: 'Тяжела ты, шапка Мономаха!' (tm)(r)(pushkin)
mircea_popescu: aha
mircea_popescu: anyway, heuristic remains : pay anyone you can fire out of net, anyone else out of gross.
mircea_popescu: trinque the adventure of say rhodesia is instructive. suddenly the imbecile twitter horde is trying to play counterstrike around your borders "for democracy", while the idiots are cheering them on. god fucking forbid black dudes with machine guns start pouring over border in us, at the rate of a few thousands a year.
mircea_popescu: TERRORISM!!!! and THE WHOLE WORLD MUST GIVE A SHIT!! AND THEREFORE DOES!!!
mircea_popescu: and the netflix scum nod along, "oh yes, terrible, terrorism, moo, moo"
mircea_popescu: then again, the us of today would pretty much collapse in a year of rhodesia treatment, supposing anyone could be arsed to apply it.
mircea_popescu: its continued existence signifies the absence of interest and exactly no more.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform remember when teh politburo shat it because they imagined the chinese'll start pouring over the border ?
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: usa has the extra-lulzy feature that it ~relies~ on porous borders in order to work (~100% of agriculture, construction, etc. business in various places is mexican)
trinque: god who wants it
asciilifeform: so closing borders, even supposing this were somehow desired by the lizards, ain't happening
trinque: all these fat women, and sidewalks filled with human shit and shit humans.

asciilifeform: *zyklon
mircea_popescu: everything's fixable in this sense.
mircea_popescu: we could all be young and the walls could be ivory.
asciilifeform: perhaps not, but the sidewalks ~could~ be shit-free.
mircea_popescu: and they're not worth the cleaning.
mircea_popescu: you say you worked in biolab. you must've encountered the phial not worth the washing, yes ?
mircea_popescu: "this set, straight to incinerator".
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ~nobody ever washed ~anything
asciilifeform: in fact.
mircea_popescu: but why! could have washed! good as new!
trinque: there was perhaps some land worth ruling, who knows. but wtf, somebody's going to be father-janitor to these people.
mircea_popescu: fact is, the crap growing in agar bottle manages to soil the bottle. permanently.
asciilifeform: chinese experience in africa suggests otherwise. rm -rf / the locals, ship in worker bees.
mircea_popescu: chinese have the bees.
trinque: the future being at all worthwhile is going to involve massive ratios of man to drone and drone to bodycount.
mircea_popescu: while that lasts. god knows the scum are trying their best to scumify china as well ; and sadder still -- the ~only reason it exists is that it's really just an alternate pathway to scum. slightly different sort of cockroach, that's all and no more.
mircea_popescu: the ~only reason it resists* i mean.
mircea_popescu: though the two are just about synonymous in context.
asciilifeform: which is why north kr was priceless treasure -- the ONLY remaining experiment with industry sans konsoomer-spending-britneyizes-all

asciilifeform: ( incidentally : https://archive.is/RcYWV << a very rare bit of sane description of subj in english )
mircea_popescu: this is not true. myanmar, fine example
asciilifeform: what industry there ?
mircea_popescu: notice how silent the "crowd wisdom" is about all that ?
mircea_popescu: ~same as best korea.
asciilifeform: how many migs they make in a year ? from what mines, the ore ?
asciilifeform: how many men under arms ? who made the arms ?
asciilifeform: no comparison.
mircea_popescu: wait, pyonyang makes migs per year ?
asciilifeform: supposedly! ( i dun work there , cannot confirm )
mircea_popescu: i'm telling you. ~same.
asciilifeform: at this point i'd doubt that they make anything at all in north kr. it is on deathbed.
asciilifeform: but at one point -- made.

asciilifeform: 1960s.
asciilifeform: *caused much
mircea_popescu: anyway. the reason i point out burma is because the coup was successful, and the country is industrializing at chinese pace.
mircea_popescu: whereas korea... whatever. it's gone, has been gone for decades.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what do they make in burma ?
mircea_popescu: by now, pretty much everything, all the way to diesel trucks, tractors etc.
asciilifeform: local ore ?
mircea_popescu: chinese help. you know, just like n korea had ru help.
mircea_popescu: but ~just~ like. on schedule to "spit it out" 2025 or so.
asciilifeform: yes but q is re what will happen if help goes to 0
asciilifeform: and borders -- close.
mircea_popescu: borders are quite closed, to eg, esl precious cuntlet.
mircea_popescu: otherwise, same as in korea - 20 years of slowly fading away.
mircea_popescu: but the general point being : the anglotard narrative is fundamentally broken. it's not you know, "broadly correct, needs adjustment". it can't be fixed. whatever you read in english newspaper makes you dumber, and you can't fix this.
mircea_popescu: where by newspaper we mean the whole gamut of fake news, from redditwittetardopedia to "the new socialist" or w/e it's called.
