BingoBoingo: So looks like Floridians are getting a visit from Carma following gloating about "we R bettr @ storm recovery"
BingoBoingo: Also the media noise today is full of "dreamers" as though that's what anchor bebes were always called.

BingoBoingo had a pretty awesome dream last sleep period. Was chilling with the Trumpreich at the Trumpstag and saw unveiling of TrumpKorea response in the form of resuming US atmospheric nuclear tests, but in KKKalifornia this time.
BingoBoingo: Another gem found in the wild: "I literally had my high school sociology teacher argue that "if the illegals aren't here, who will pick our crops?" He was black, too. It baffles me that he, of all people, couldn't see the argument he made was literally the same argument the Democrats used to enslave his ancestors."
mircea_popescu: maybe he sees it all too well.
mircea_popescu: "if the illegals weren't here, guess who'd be picking the crops."
BingoBoingo: LOL
BingoBoingo: Hence the gem'ness
BingoBoingo: Can't spell jool without joo
mircea_popescu: :)

a111: Logged on 2017-09-05 23:33 asciilifeform got a chinese arm board going, 'mx28', after it was quite near the rubbish bin. tip for future folx trying to get one of these things up, but it resets itself every second or so : look for 'watchdog' in the schematic, and try to find and kill
spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-09-06#1710923 <-- nah. it's exactly that: members of the congregation don't have physical access to reset buttons in their prayer beads; so hardware vendor inserts an automated reset for when prayer bead crashes.☝︎

mircea_popescu: a kiss is a contract!

mircea_popescu: this is true. metaphorically true, but true nevertheless.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> a kiss is a contract! << The sacred ones are just there witnessing
mircea_popescu: girls whose kiss was spermctified rarely split up irl.
mircea_popescu: anyway, re s.nsa report : working on it, will be published today im pretty sure. sorry for teh delays.
shinohai: I'm wondering if I should go back to bed: "Woman On Tinder Date Gets Stuck In Window Trying To Retrieve Her Own Poop"
BingoBoingo: OMG it's there: "“ ‘I went for a poo in your toilet,’ she told me,” Smyth wrote on his GoFundMe campaign site. But when the toilet wouldn’t flush, she lost her head a little: “I reached into the toilet bowl, wrapped it in tissue paper, and threw it out of the window.”
BingoBoingo: Unfortunately, her poop didn’t make it out the window at all. Due to a design quirk, the bundle instead fell inside the wide gap between the window’s two panes.
BingoBoingo: With the night already ruined, the pair went into the bathroom to try to solve the crappy problem. The windows open from the top, so Smyth’s date — an amateur gymnast — got a boost from Smyth, then went upside down into the gap from above, grasping for her turd."
mircea_popescu: totally not "creative" writing trying for attention ploy, or else it wouldn't be on his fucking busking myspace.
asciilifeform: 'where i should put this!?' (tm)(r)('borat')
shinohai: Because if your date tosses her poo and winds up breaking your window, should totally fund that.
shinohai: Who needs insurance?
BingoBoingo: Who needs windows if this is the shit you blog
shinohai: ^
shinohai imagines some random girl pulling this on mircea_popescu .... would likely wind up in the trash ala my favourite Trilema header

asciilifeform: iirc that was from shittube et al cooperating

mircea_popescu: the argument wasn't "a firewall implemented so and so for purposes this and that". it was "a firewall".
mircea_popescu: so much is satisfied.
mircea_popescu: that they suck at it is not a mediating circumstance.
asciilifeform: actual looks like http://www.loper-os.org/?p=208 .
mircea_popescu: "the 5yo boy isn't a criminal because while he lay in wait in the little girl's closet for her to fall asleep and then tried to force a plastic knife in her eye, he didn't have enough force to actually reach the brain. he did leave behind a work on "most efficient ways to kill people" open at the stab-to-eye page in the library, but nevertheless!"
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> imho the remarkable bit is that there ~isnt~ yet a 'great firewall of' eu (usa, etc) << Eh, not enough for me to feel like newsing on it's own. May support a later newsing
mircea_popescu: "there isn't an euro firewall" is very much a constructive "there isn't a great bureaucratic conspiracy to kill every man". sure, there "isn't" in the sense it's not working, but strictly due to them being inept. if they could they would and if they could do it any better they'd do it.
asciilifeform: q would be -- wai so inept, wai plasticknife.

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo re http://qntra.net/#fn2-7835 : this is both correct and well grounded. pantsuit exists by and for a certain section of us corporatelandia ; which entirely exists of and for "job creation" as the racket through which to launder "public funds" ie fake money printed by fed on the basis of chinese indiscriminate crediting of the us foreign account.
mircea_popescu: that whole pyramid strictly depends on "illegals".
mircea_popescu: it's very vulnerable to border strangulation in a way the republican corporatelandia is not (their scam is "high tech" instead of "job creation")
BingoBoingo: AHA
mircea_popescu: just goes to show the libertards are actual retards. who the fucking hell picks "headcount" over "metaphysics" as a tool to bezzle, if given the choice. and they did have the choice.
mircea_popescu: chose the wrong thing because "it's what mother cunt would have wanted". except what mother cunt would have wanted is ~always the wrong fucking thing.
BingoBoingo: Well, it goes with "BE NICE! NO PUNCHING!"

mircea_popescu: wait, which is the us tv station again ? disney is not for people, nature is not for people... news stations are for ohio blondes... which is the us tv again ?
mircea_popescu: (speaking of subtle differences : wikipedia has a mention of televisa's income (700mn profit over 5.3 billion gross, 2012 figures) but not of nbc's. this is of course not a meaningful omission, IF you're the sort of mentally dull retard that actually takes wikipedia seriously. the word fucking "income" is not on the nbc page.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, comcast made 8bn on about 80bn in 2016.
