BingoBoingo: brb, Ludo and cooking tuna for the tuna
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo ahahahaah omfg that was hysterical
BingoBoingo: tyvm
BingoBoingo: Seriously though a more detailed update on the state of Casa Boingo is indeed baking
BingoBoingo: In other news, pete_d's new blog header has him with a Elon Musk branded weeding torch http://www.contravex.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/contravex-not-a-flamethrower-header.jpeg
mircea_popescu: in other news, "nudo" is how you say knots in this country. because obviously nudity and tries go together!
mircea_popescu: it occurs to me, here's a good idea for a film : this woman loses a child, like it disappears. and then a year or so later it is found!
mircea_popescu: however... it is not her child.
mircea_popescu: in fact, there's this group of weirdos on reddit who train children to pretend they're the missing children of other people.
mircea_popescu: basically a platform to explore the woeful mismatch between the inadequacy of ye olde fiat institutions and the far reaching powers of the network.
mircea_popescu: obvious she "goes to friends for advice". what fucking friends ? what fucking "advice" ? the world hasn't worked that way in two centuries, if i want a shirt i want 1 in 1000 shirt shops, if i want a woman i talk to candidates selected through three to five passes with two to three degrees of magnitude lossage each...

asciilifeform: holyfuq that drainpipe stove. they have better stoves in gulag.
asciilifeform: consider : http://trilema.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/jap-deva-11.jpg << vs >> http://www.kolymastory.ru/wp-content/gallery/dneprov/109555743.jpg
phf: asciilifeform: that's not a fair comparison, if nothing else gulag still was _men_ wrestling raw matter from the earth in extreme environmental conditions, and succeeding. whatever limited technological support they had had to work reliably and achieve some kind of objective
asciilifeform: i dungetit , why not fair comparison
asciilifeform: the cr folx have 2 arms and 2 legs, neh
asciilifeform: they could make oildrum stove like anybody else.
asciilifeform: phf: or didja mean the http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-08#1748753 thesis. then sure.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-12-08 15:02 asciilifeform: the 'good climate makes folx lazy and slowly climbing 'back up to trees' ' item is an old saw, but i'm not aware of any major hole in the theory
phf: asciilifeform: it's not a fair comparison to gulag folx
phf: they were still men, doing things. this is, like your quoted item, half way up a tree
phf: you know how when somebody says "she's like a pig" and somebody says "that's not fair to the pig, pigs are noble creatures"
asciilifeform: aa
asciilifeform: asciilifeform's puzzler is , re how mircea_popescu gave verdict 'argentines are subhuman' but then moves closer to equator, where monkeys , and somehow there - 'not subhuman'
asciilifeform: ( not even clear, to my untrained eye, why 'ticos' need stove. to make tea, primus would suffice, neh )
phf: can't burn trash and flotsam in a primus
asciilifeform: troo
asciilifeform: gotta admit, the 'charm' of the squalor, is lost on asciilifeform .
phf: i think mircea_popescu benefits the more virginal the peasants are around him. easier to source untainted (?) bulk meat of four legged and two legged kind
asciilifeform: i recall his theory that it generates better chix, somehow. but still strikes me as ugh.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, fwiw my reading of the matter is "less pretense"
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i can see this pov. fwiw my emulated mircea_popescu says : 'if ameritards were given their just deserts per their actual productivity, they would then lack not only their gas stove, but would not even have primus'
phf: asciilifeform: while idly researching camping stoves, i recently saw a lulzy video of an american trying to light a polish camping primus and failing miserably (the manual dexterity (???) required for the pre-heat phase was apparently too much for this particular specimen)
phf: ^ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bh9ijtC8LLk
phf: *ukranian
asciilifeform: lol!!
asciilifeform: 'we can't get kerosene, let's use diesel' even
asciilifeform: the sheer wtf...
asciilifeform: and all over hands.
mircea_popescu is actually quite curious if esthlos managed to do two days yest :D
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i think the zinc'd sheet item is 100% made by hand with hand tools. hands of people not even particularly strong.
mircea_popescu: it's what i'd expect an industrious 9yo with unlimited materials & time at his disposition would turn out.
asciilifeform: sheet metal scissors, ha.
mircea_popescu: also i'll point out, 49k colones is almost a whole benjie
mircea_popescu: this isn't somalia 1-dollar-a-day level of starvation poor. costa rica is relatively economically developed, about on par with say ohio.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-29#1838160 << this is very much the salient point here. the new world tribesmen, be they of the spanish-mediated variety as in "whatever survived onslaught" or the dutch&english mediated varieties, as in "we withrew to mancave leaving the stupid women behind to revert to irqouisism reinforced with some somaliland shamanic sentiment" are very much children, fundamentally and irrecoverably intelle☝︎

mircea_popescu: ctually simple.
mircea_popescu: kinda like the revered mirvniki of legend, takes 100 of them to make cvasifunctional approximation of human agent.

mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-29#1838170 << argentines are literally and without exageration a bunch of soy farmers who pretend FOR NO REASON conceivable, a circumstance of which they are aware AND PRETEND IT DOES NOT MATTER! AT ALL!, pretend they say they're something in the vein of "third power in europe". and that they might have such things as submarines, and so on. it's literally pig going through girls' charm cabinet a☝︎

mircea_popescu: nd insisting there's no difference between vamp in her make-up and the very pig with lipstick.
mircea_popescu: this is offensive to the senses.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile the ticos are ~coffee farmers~, ie, you realise, mountain fucking people, and this is NOT the same, i've never met plainsdwellers i could stand. and they pretend to nothing whatsoever, but they are specifically and openly dedicated to todo bien.
mircea_popescu: ie, they're cows, minding their own fucking business of cowsing. how can one take offence with that ? and how could one, even if momentarily offended by whatever matching of circumstance capable of tricking his eye, how could one not, on the second pass when one always thinks about things, not realise it's really his fucking problem, trying to affix veils to veals and whatnot ?
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-29#1838175 << this is absolutely not true. after months during which i had my girls scour the place (and seeing how the population isn't all that much, i do believe they touched personally every single individual female that could perhaps be worth my consideration) the net result was epsilon. most of the bootcamp population is imported here, and for very fundamental reasons : it takes ~a lot~ of☝︎

mircea_popescu: intellectual sophistication to cut it as a slavegirl in my harem. i said before, "There's not who'd compete and there's not how to compete with her, it's a laughable proposition, like a samurai at a kindergarten." and yes that is after training. but all the training in the world can't help the instant kindergartner.
mircea_popescu: on the basis of extensive experience i'd guess there's high five to six figures females potentially interesting to me alive at any given moment. and yes i intend to see them all before i die.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: so the appeal of cr -- the climate, the iguanas ?
mircea_popescu: yes, as to the climate, it's perfect and eternal spring. yes, as to the land, it's fucking beautiful, and the pineapple is fabulous and the coffee is best-in-the-world and so on.
asciilifeform: makes sense.
mircea_popescu: it delivers the things you ~want~ from the general population, eg, grocery bag boy who is, genuinely and thoroughly, deligted to bag my ~500 worth of imported french wine and whatnot. and he'll take the time to roll each bottle nicely in thick paper, if i want him to. and he'll hitch it all to a cart and follow me to the car, and be so fucking thrilled he got a fiver for it.
mircea_popescu: and people who will stop traffic to pull your car out from the mud because you stopped to take pics. and in general, you don't want to fuck your neighbour specifically, the little you fuck (and it IS little, boyish fantasies notwithstanding, one competent, well trained woman can exhaust and keep exhausted a dozen or more men) can very well be imported.
mircea_popescu: it helps though if your neighbour harbors no airs or delusions of self importance. it helps IMMENSELY.
asciilifeform: i thought mircea_popescu brought own servant hands errywhere
asciilifeform: what's the use of the bottle wrapping boy
asciilifeform: ( iirc there was a trilema where 'restaurant waiter is a kind of ersatz servant for those who can't afford own, like that jacket they keep for the occasional d00d who wanders in without jacket' )
mircea_popescu: how do you reconcile this with http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-24#1837586 ?☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-07-24 16:31 asciilifeform: it went approx like this, iirc some time in 2016 : asciilifeform : 'if quality slavegurlz can be trained to do anything , mircea_popescu couldja spare 1 or 2 for ada battallion ' mircea_popescu : 'hell no, why would i waste any on such a thing; what next, i will ask asciilifeform to do field work detail in their place ? '
asciilifeform: i dun see contradiction -- they're already with you in restaurant, neh, it isn't as if wrapping bottle will subtract from the spywork
mircea_popescu: how would you know ?
mircea_popescu: maybe she's tailing the soviets. maybe she's picking up random dutch tourist girl. maybe she's just having a snooze.
mircea_popescu: there's no shortage of work to be done, and nothing wrong with relief from the menial.
asciilifeform: speaking of 'no relief from the menial', i'ma bbl.
mircea_popescu: heh.
mircea_popescu: anyway, i for one am amused by his easy slide from "why do you like" to "why do you need". obviously i don't fucking need a waitress, yes i can have my own sluts do it for me, and on (rare!) occasion i do just that. but why the fuck would i trade slavegirl time for minwage time, for one, and why the fuck would i have to ~like~ having to do it.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-29#1838183 << and then you wanna talk about "halfway up tree". these are the people with "we can't get penis, let's use bit of plastic" right.☝︎

mod6: ah, nice. big step back up in difficulty, +14.88%
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i have nfi in what shithole the d00d in the clip lives, even here there is kerosene.
asciilifeform: ( sold errywhere, lotsa folx have kerosene heaters in sheds, terrible malodorous thing )
