mircea_popescu: the TWIST however, is that the bad guys (uk govt) are trying to protect not "officials" but private individuals, from a crazed online campaign by the usual pantsuit. at stakle is the culling of badgers, which are common pests, and as animals have no rights.

mircea_popescu: perhaps, even, if you say it re 2020.
mircea_popescu: but if you try for "never" you are certainly wrong.
asciilifeform: i dare say not true in 20, considering that saharov-style compressive flux generator ( i.e. linear dynamo powered by trotyl ) can almost certainly substitute for those 20ton-equiv of pu
mircea_popescu: conceivably.
mircea_popescu: i've no idea, i never worked on a nuclear bomb.
mircea_popescu: solid state physics though, it dun stand still.
asciilifeform: esp. if you make clever use of the magnetic pulse for confinement, while the electric does the work
asciilifeform: the whole 'art' of the n00k, is the hold-it-still-long-enuff
mircea_popescu: let's put it this way : if you took the people who did the original centrifugal separators and had them made ping-pong playing drone instead, they'd have failed.
mircea_popescu: "but why, it's just spinning things precisely". ya, well...
asciilifeform: traditional fissiles are dead end, from crackpot pov
asciilifeform: takes toomany joules.
asciilifeform: ( esp if you count the joules sunk into the oddball metallurgies, to make the pipes )
mircea_popescu: 3d printing!!111
asciilifeform: from asciilifeform's reading of the histories, much of what usg did since '45 has been to create exaggerated impression of difficulty; and it was done at the cost of wasting ~own~ resources whenever possible, in stupendously massive way
mircea_popescu: anyway, the point being that many unsurmontable tech problems of the 1940s are hardly worth the mention today. "it's called a servo, duh" etc.
asciilifeform: fissiles per se, in particular, have not been strictly necessary since perhaps 1970.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's all part of the http://trilema.com/2015/i-think-you-drastically-overestimate-the-military-importance-of-nuclear-weapons/
asciilifeform: and whole 'separation plant', 'go and machine perfect sphere out of pyrophoric poison', etc -- red herring.
mircea_popescu: how better to be convincing that snake oil works, than by pretending it is very very expensive ?
mircea_popescu: it IS snake oil after all, as opposed to schmaltz.
asciilifeform: the snake aspect is in the 'apocalyptic' meme
asciilifeform: n00k worx perfectly fine to annul the advantage of columns of tanks, expensive jets, etc.
asciilifeform: this Would Be Wrong from inca's pov, naturally.
asciilifeform: so we get the memewars.
asciilifeform: su happily played along, incidentally, for the obvious reason.
asciilifeform: the myth of the 'but otherwise, nukefest, apocalypse' is one of the glues holding incatronic empire together.
mircea_popescu: there is no such thing as "columns of tanks".
mircea_popescu: how useful atomic detonation is against a jet, remains dubious.
asciilifeform: quite useful, 0 meaningful shielding
mircea_popescu: but it DOES destroy the convention of "all good things flow to city", which has been the rallying cry since the times of parmenides.
asciilifeform: and dynamically unstable, thing will fall like brick.
asciilifeform: and city, and whatever other fortification.
mircea_popescu: you couldn't have such a thing as "bay area" if every elliot around there could just donate a few peta bequerels to the general area.
asciilifeform: would last as long as the medieval castles did against gunpowder.
mircea_popescu: which is the point. elaine wants to live in city, elliot hasn't the sense to fuck her over.
mircea_popescu: has been the mo of humanity for what, 3k years.
asciilifeform: elliot likely could not produce even 18th c. cannon with own hands, much less n00k.
asciilifeform: joe stack, on other hand..
mircea_popescu: and elaine likely could not produce 1800s warsaw ghetto with her own hands, let alone san francisco.
mircea_popescu: what of this ?
asciilifeform: 1 is cumulative fungus, other is not.
asciilifeform: no shit midden ever detonated.
mircea_popescu: 1 is cumulative fungus, other is non-cummulatiove lottery ticket.
mircea_popescu: if we're talking odds...
asciilifeform: i dun see how odds enter into it.
asciilifeform: the odds for elliot are not epsilon, but 0.
mircea_popescu: this is the point here : elaines accumulate, havin babies, but their upper bound is epsilon (having babies). elliots do not accumulate, being incapable to even communicate.
mircea_popescu: however, their upper bound is unknown at best.
mircea_popescu: so it's : to blow up, either pile enough epsilon elaines until it sums to blow up ; or else keep pulling pins out of elliots, until one does it.
asciilifeform: is it possible that we disagree what means 'an elliot' ?
mircea_popescu: perhaps.
asciilifeform: i picture that it means 'illiterate luser, unable to so much as change a tyre'
mircea_popescu: an elliot, modelled after and in homage of historical elliot rodgers, is individual who deems world is at the bar to justify its continued existence to him.
mircea_popescu: an elaine, modelled after no one in particular really, is individual who deems connecting with her sisters is a definitive strategy.
asciilifeform: 'female wail' (tm)(r) ?
mircea_popescu: if you will. usually, it's called "mankind", for unclear reasons.
mircea_popescu: "the continuance of life on land", if viewed from zootehnist/slave ower perspective.
mircea_popescu: to elaine, the city is a paramount construction, which is why it was the first invention. this is not avoidable. as it happens, elliot to date hasn't well figured out ways to destroy the city.
mircea_popescu: locally, temporarily, but nothing significant.
mircea_popescu: except, of course, for the nuclear bomb, which is why all the apoplectic femlit on the topic since 1940s.
mircea_popescu: anyway. that's the original pussygrab. "will (((we))) ie, men, finally ruin (((the world))) ie gynecaeum ???"
asciilifeform: the tale with koschei's needle etc. inescapably comes to mind.
mircea_popescu: the problem is ~nobody wants to live without women if they can help it. as exemplified by say the nazi jew airbnb ; and as explained by say shaw.\
asciilifeform: that, and mircea_popescu's ro joak with the running hen
mircea_popescu: so elliott doesn't stand very good prospects.
mircea_popescu: besides, there's a reason young males are the expendable biomass in all sexuate species.
asciilifeform: somewhere in the back of the hindbrain, the gynecaeum inmates want this ruin to wait for'em, for the fortress to be... pregnable
asciilifeform: it wasn't clear that the original, named elliot's problem was with the chix
asciilifeform: it was 'with system'
mircea_popescu: well yes. "how dares this world not justify its continued existence to me"
asciilifeform: sorta like mircea_popescu's jar mouse , only superficially 'hated the glass'
mircea_popescu: nah, mouse had a much flatter problem.
asciilifeform: mouse did not, i suspect, devote rest of his days to smashing glass wherever found.
mircea_popescu: animals don't hate.
mircea_popescu: kinda why they've no rights.
mircea_popescu: if the item will not play over multiple meets, it is not a subject of legal protection.
mircea_popescu: only things that will hate, which is to say, punish you in this game for your misbehaviour in previous games, can possibly be protected by a law.
asciilifeform: q is whether elliot is mouse, not whether mouse is a man
mircea_popescu: seems to me he set out some standards for the world to meet, ie vehemently delicious pork chops and cali blonde private whore ; and when world failed to live to them he "terminated" it as best he could.
mircea_popescu: the key part in the atomics-of-the-masses discussion is that "best he could".
asciilifeform: ( does mircea_popescu much hang out with folx who see mouse as man ? it isn't a thing that'd normally occur to asciilifeform , say . where does he get the vegetarians )
mircea_popescu: he's ineffectual because why the fuck would we help him.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i strive for variety.
mircea_popescu: and in other news, holy shit reading the "venture capital" blogospam is A LOT like going through clinical notes on schizos with systematised delusionary processes.
mircea_popescu: fucking tiresome.
asciilifeform: nigerian prince spam moar interesting.
mircea_popescu: interesting perhaps not the right word. nigerian prince a lot more like bangbros porn ; these idiots a lot more like jane fonda trying to pretend she's srsly acting in a srs film.
mircea_popescu: she's a fucking workout trainer, but whatevers, can be anything amirite.
