mod6: So that should conclude the collections for now. I'll be putting some effort into some fg-anal sometime soon -- maybe nothing more than some basic facts extrapolated from the test results per collection and links to the raw results.
mod6: Anyway, we'll see. :]

mircea_popescu: lmao wtf did they do, retrofitted air-ground missiles on medical helicopters ?
mircea_popescu: "Hostilities erupted last week when the military and the police moved to arrest Isnilon Hapilon, the Islamic State’s anointed leader in the Philippines and head of an Abu Sayyaf faction."
mircea_popescu: cool. state gotta learn this "arrest" business ain't all it's cracked up to be.
ben_vulpes: globalization, also not all it's cracked up to be
mircea_popescu: in other lulz, "Taboola adheres to the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising, a program run by the Digital Advertising Alliance and the Digital Advertising Alliance Canada with the goal of providing Internet users transparency and control."
mircea_popescu: i am somewhat confused to see there's no consensus in there.
ben_vulpes: ah, america. do you remember when you believed that 'terrorism' was a geographically constrained thing you could wage war on in a conventional fashion?
ben_vulpes: shoulda listened to robb when you had the chance.
mircea_popescu: robb stark ?
ben_vulpes: john robb, pet dissenter in the 'small wars strategy' orbit of washington
mircea_popescu: oh the early internet research dude
ben_vulpes: i don't really know what you mean by early internet research dude
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes this john robb guy, kept a blog for a while about guerilla warfare whatever ; but before that he was with forrester research, kept doing pieces that were more cogent that most. re browser wars, re social me,dia, etc
mircea_popescu: 90s.
mircea_popescu: i think now he's turned towards a slightly more self-empowered version of lafond-ism, "structured communities" or somesuch.
ben_vulpes: ah yeah. mhm, that's the one.
ben_vulpes: "resilient" and "antifragile" are the shibboleths
mircea_popescu: right right.
mircea_popescu: not altogether a stupid idea in theory.
mircea_popescu: an incredibly stupid idea in practice, because ~all it does is allow cheap double defection, which is pretty much suicidal in context.
ben_vulpes: elaborate on cheap double defection?
mircea_popescu: consider the more obvious / discussed in the logs case of "nuclear war preparedness". if you model the us cca 1960 as the existence of two tribes, type a which didn't believe there's imminent risk of nuclear winter and type b which did believe there's imminent risk of nuclear winter, the fact that type b doctrine included "no need to separate from type a, we can just have some shit bolted on" allows random population member X
mircea_popescu: the space to CLAIM appartenence to type b without actually incurring any of the cost.
mircea_popescu: do you recall that ridiculous "bunker" with 30% dedicated to "motorcycles" and a few fish tanks "For food" ? that sort of cvasi-religious nonsense is the end result -- resources are diverted towards making a show of compliance with designs that are dysfunctional by their very nature. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: basically, the agent defects from a to b and then defects from b back to a sort of "skeptical a".
mircea_popescu: ~how the whole "ironic" bs got started.

Framedragger: :(
mircea_popescu: wtf happened here, the site's still on, still SELLING the shit. what, they saw it linked from logs, and deleted it ?
Framedragger: attempting to grok "causal structure" of "modern web" is recipe for madness, best to avoid!..
mircea_popescu: "Our proprietary-engineered design makes our underground bunkers the strongest and safest on the market. We have revolutionized the underground bunker industry by placing our main structural frame on the inside to protect your family and belongings from moisture on the outside. Ghe exterior 1/4-thick steel skin is coated with Epoxy Coal Tar to guarantee your new 10 x 20 Underground Bunker will last a lifetime." this, of cours
mircea_popescu: e, found on http://ultimatebunker.com/product/30-x-50-custom-underground-bunker/
mircea_popescu: anyway, the ridiculous item in question reserved an immense space for "motorbike garage" and a tiny space for "aquaculture" in the shape of cubic foot fishtanks ; in same room, rabbit cages, same size.
mircea_popescu: it's a level of superficial idiocy that can't be matched outside of these double-defection situations, for which it is typical in the exact way stench is typical of filth. ☟︎
Framedragger: !#s aquaponics
a111: 7 results for "aquaponics", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=aquaponics
Framedragger: never bothered to find out if there's any merit to that ^
mircea_popescu: to what ?
Framedragger: aquaponics - having a (umm) self-contained plant growth and fish system for food? i'm not even sure what it is. "save lots of space" is one of the arguments iirc
mircea_popescu: well i mean what, in the general ? of course there's merit to it, that's how... earth works.
Framedragger: (one example i've been sorta following is https://automicrofarm.com/ - they don't have much to show tho, not sure if ever will)
Framedragger: heh, yeah, okay
mircea_popescu: let me ask you this. what is the objective limit to the height of the roof ?
Framedragger: how objective? like, armstrong limit objective?
mircea_popescu: yes.
Framedragger: so that, then. :) right, quite a bit of space for stacking, heh.
mircea_popescu: point being : there's these inflection points, yes ? is there any merit to this "atmosphere indoors" notion ?
mircea_popescu: depends how tall you build!
Framedragger: hrm, yeah.
mircea_popescu: now, is there any merit to armstrong roof ~in your closet~ ? no, there fucking isn't.
mircea_popescu: "but what if i put it sideways"
mircea_popescu: "i'm gonna construct an angle fiddler, it's clearly to do with the angle"
mircea_popescu: etc.
mircea_popescu: (for the innocent -- the reason armstrong limit is an abolute limit on the height of the roof is because by the time it rains in your room you can no longer claim to have a roof above it.)
phf: asciilifeform: i picked up that harakiri book, enjoying it so far
phf: (actually i'm not sure if it's the right book, but i got "hara-kiri: japanese ritual suicide" by jack stewart) ☟︎
mod6: anyway, incase anyone cares, on openbsd once I connect my FG via USB-TTL, i was able to use device 'cuaU0' to read from the FG:

mircea_popescu: how do you mean ?
asciilifeform: well, d00dz who don't bother to figure out, how many joules of light even hit the 'garden', even supposing more than a few % ended up in food... ☟︎
asciilifeform: ( this re the indoor gardening bit. it is not difficult to try it, the surest cure for 'bunker garden' notion is to try the indoor tomato thing )
asciilifeform: now if somebody coughed up a doctored ~efficient~ mod of RuBisCO...
mircea_popescu: ah, yes. but the thing is -- the clueless could in principle be clueless about anything in any way, and on the basis of such simple model you'd expect normal distribution, with most not doing anything in particular. whereas the theory here is that ellaborate nonsense is always driven by this situation when a broken ideology encounters a weak reformist group and then idiots end up double-defecting, once into the reformists and
mircea_popescu: once out.
asciilifeform: i have nfi whether this applies to the bunker aficionados
asciilifeform: afaik they could be earnest believers in the postapocalyptic value of the harley.
asciilifeform: because watched 'mad max'.
mircea_popescu: but the point is that their temple will never be put to the test.
asciilifeform: how much this even changes when it ~is~ put to test ? e.g. the folx during the plague who carried around paper talisman, word 'arsenicum' (because obtaining actual arsenic for talisman costs a little more..)
mircea_popescu: similar example, say, "homeopathy", is a level of complexity in nonsense inexplicable on the basis of simple dynamics. but the necessary requisite for its appearance is very good general health services -- then people can afford to "not trust doctors" and "practice alternative medicine" but in the sense of... not really practicing anythinbg in particular.
asciilifeform: (or fast forward to modern ameristan and antiterrorist talismans)
mircea_popescu: they have that ?
asciilifeform: aha, in every airport
mircea_popescu: "don't bomb me, i have two wives" ?
mircea_popescu: ah lol.
mircea_popescu: to my eyes that's still a match : inasmuch as there's no actual terrorists actually bothering with it, the "dept of homeland security" may continue to departmentr of homeland securitize about.
mircea_popescu: if there were actual selective pressure, it'd change or disappear. but there isn't.
asciilifeform: aaaah yes this
mircea_popescu: so basically, in that example, people defecterd from vhs-america, through creating "tough on terrorism" pantsuiterica. but then ALSO defected from that, because really.
mircea_popescu: leaving behind the present situation, meaningful to no one and effectual in no way.
asciilifeform: or consider the elaborate dog&pony show of ameri-courts. also works strictly in absence of much serious organized uppitiness.
asciilifeform: ( in the contrary, there would be 'troikas' instead of courts presided over by preet )
mircea_popescu: right, the law became complex as interest in legality plumeted.
mircea_popescu: basically, to the original point, this "soft alternative" approach to a present problem is a transcription of the bikeshed approach to decision making.
asciilifeform: believe or not, i do not know the story behind the infamous 'bike shed'
asciilifeform: why is it called so
mircea_popescu: "are you with the mainstream or with the resilient communities ?" "oh, we're ~seeing past that~". etc.
