asciilifeform: 404
mircea_popescu: that'd be the joke, yes.
asciilifeform: some folx, when they croak, all they get is a stone marked '404'.
mircea_popescu: (no, the "archive" wikipedia links to also doesn't have any content. the pantsuit will carefully link to dead pages of things)
asciilifeform: who, outside of the l0gz, remembers, e.g., erik frein.
mircea_popescu: but whatever, moron opted to make it a pdf, i don't care.
asciilifeform: i dun expect itd've made much diff if he stuck to godly 80col .txt .
mircea_popescu: it would be here.
asciilifeform: ( and chances are that it wasn't born pdf, the ustards tend to repackage errything they get their sticky hands on, in pdf , for obv reasons )
mircea_popescu: and then link to dead pages of http://btcbase.org/log/2018-08-01#1838633 puppets, and to imperial ersatz-archives of same, that are just as dead.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-08-01 03:07 mircea_popescu: just like the weev morons, writing "advertising" irc bots to advertise inept usg alt-agenda to me. because yea, totally, THAT'll work, and is the way to spend a youth.

I had, however, done a tour of duty in south Florida’s public schools where the teachers taught us guilt and self-hate, where drugs and violence were the norm. I no longer trusted the System.

mircea_popescu: amusingly, post ww2 lots of ro army officers rejected the russian-sponsored pretense to relevancy of local "socialists" (exactly like us socialists, 1950s ro socialists were indistinct jobsworths, jailbirds and assorted faggots)

mats: same group (campaign legal center) made complaints that hrc campaign paid out to fusion gps for the famous mi6 dosier
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: was out in the boonies, next to the litle zoo thing they had
mircea_popescu: aha.
mats: seen here https://www.courthousenews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/DOSSIER-LAWSUIT-1.pdf
asciilifeform: there was a woman there, looked to be 80-90 y.o., crying on bench.
mircea_popescu: there were originally thousands and thousands of groups. a few famous ones lasted into the 60s, thereby delaying the "victory against fascist elements".
asciilifeform: not errybody likes being colonized, noose at 11...
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, there was a good 30-40% female population in these.
mircea_popescu: goes to show that the "oh, treblinka, had women" is not quite that useful a heuristic. it also depends WHAT women. useless polish jews or what.
asciilifeform: sure does
asciilifeform: will add, belarussian partizans also ~20-30% chix, didn't hurt
asciilifeform: mine under track still goes off when laid by chix.
mircea_popescu: i lost interest in this "tactical choice of my part" pile of crap within two pages. who goes unarmed ? "I used to wear a handcuff key around
mircea_popescu: my neck for just such an occasion. But that was a long time ago; seemed like ages almost" ? srsly ? who the fuck runs towards the ambush, unarmed ?
asciilifeform: eliot.
asciilifeform: iirc rudolf ended as some sort of armed desperado tho, so maybe read backwards ? ( then again, so did eliot... )
asciilifeform: neither shows symptoms of being any kind of 'man of letters' tho.
mircea_popescu: this was the discussion of his capture i thought.
mircea_popescu: aaaanyway.
asciilifeform: possibly includes one. but is 'autobio' written from prison, supposedly.
mircea_popescu: the fascinating adventures of men alone.
asciilifeform: whothefuq knows what % any relation to fact.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: iirc rudolf wasn't ~exactly~ alone, has buncha derps in countryside helpin' him hide out and draw out the agony
asciilifeform: y'know, like the carpathian folx.
asciilifeform: *had
mircea_popescu: looky, the mechanics of him being arrested were, from the pastebin : 1. dood saw a box of bruised bananas in dumpster, decided store will dump 100s of lbs, on the basis of experience ; 2. dood told self "i dodged that police cruiser hundreds of times, can do it again" ; 3. dood decided to cross after first pass of cruiser, rather than wait AS PER USUAL see if it comes back ; 4. when spotted, dood decided to run into blind all
mircea_popescu: ey, instead of back the way he came.
mircea_popescu: which sounds like "i'm sick of eating dumpster, this ends now", except for the part where he packed no weapons.
asciilifeform: ( it was never clear to asciilifeform what the ro, baltic, ukr, etc anti-sov partizans were hoping to accomplish, beyond a good 1st class ticket to honourable valhalla. they could not have glued the world of 1939 back together, and given as they weren't redditards, prolly understood this. so i'm left with 'acted from cause not purpose'(tm)(r) and no better hypothesis. )
mircea_popescu: what the fuck was wrong with waiting for the cop to get out, shooting him in the fucking head, urinating in the hole, getting into the cruiser, calling emergency "officer shot" bla bla, then picking the respondents from behind with shotgun ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform imo that was exactly what was going on.
asciilifeform: valhalla always open for biznis.
mircea_popescu: contrary to popular belief, no system ever in history could afford to field militarily relevant policemen. it's impossible.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ~erry arrest story i ever read featured some variant of 'then i slipped on banana'
asciilifeform: seems like statistics favour this.
mircea_popescu: killing a dozen cops or so per encounter comfortably within limits of training ; and this isn't even counting what they'll do to each other in crossfire.
asciilifeform: recall the ex-cop black d00d in california
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform where is the "slipped" ? "i went into berserker mode without my axe", this is not slipping. if you don't take a gun, you are aware you're not into that mode, yes ?
mircea_popescu: he... FORGOT he didn't take his guns ?
asciilifeform: lol maybe listened 1 too many times to 'dun take yer guns to town'..
mircea_popescu: but i mean, logically. man wakes up in morning. "do i wish to die today or live another day ?" if answer comes out 2, he goes with no guns, AND ACTS ACCORDINGLY
mircea_popescu: what, he forgot what answer had come to ?
mircea_popescu: very poorly organised thought process, in the freeranged derp. hence my "man alone" comment.
mircea_popescu: it's not that he was or was not in the physical presence of other biobatteries.
asciilifeform: i'll admit, puzzled, with what then did he shoot the cops he was supposed to have shot
mircea_popescu: it is that he never had anyone in his life to fucking tell him QUESTIONS FOLLOW IN A TREE!!!!
asciilifeform: ( am i mixing the eliots in my memory ? )
mircea_popescu: if we decided 1, then we act as 1 throughout the respective tree, wtf is this random mix and matching.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i vaguely recall weirdo caught dumpster diving, dunno what cops he shot or w/e.
asciilifeform: oh hah shot 0 cops
asciilifeform: i had'im mixed with somebody.
mircea_popescu: possibly with the http://trilema.com/2015/strategy-for-the-antisocial-struggle/ fellows.

asciilifeform: or confessed to same, at any rate
asciilifeform: ( could have also made him confess to shooting kennedy, i have nfi why they didn't )
mircea_popescu: stupidest fucking red herring to ever fixate on. really, they'll fight "the ideals of global socialism" by opposing the natural process of culling the herd ?

phf: one of the move ladies runs a "raw foods" shop in west philadelphia, she don't talk about it much though. i had an amusing conversation with one of her locals, who, unprompted, went on a long rant about how bitcoin is a weapon against babylon, and how fbi is going to start killing bitcoin people, etc.

mircea_popescu: you're what, proposing injuns are killing the pilgrims in trade ?
asciilifeform: this does not closely align with the reality experienced by d00dz who aint mircea_popescu ..
mircea_popescu: what the injuns have everyone has ; what the pilgrims have, shiny beads and all, nobody, not even the gods, ever saw before.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, but in order to achieve this effect, those d00dz sit on truly tall tower of chairs.
asciilifeform: dunno, i thought mircea_popescu were adherent of (imho reasonable..) 'most males good only for mutton' pov
mircea_popescu: these conflict ?
Mocky: mircea_popescu, why curious about that?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: possibly, or possibly i'm missing a link in the logic circuit
mircea_popescu: Mocky i mean of the whole adventure, not the item specifically
Mocky: ahh. me too!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the 'tower of chairs' item implies 'if only they'd open their third eye, would swim in cunt' hypothesis
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform seems to me that "there's 0.95 peni for every cunt and while the latter works continuously, the former only works minutes/day" is not dulled but aggravated by coda "and on top of this most peni connected to apparatus only fit for mutton"
asciilifeform: well for 1 thing the former dun work 'continuously', it works for 2, maybe 3 decades of organism, with rare exception. while latter good for ~40-50

mircea_popescu: "record" events do things like fluffers etc, which...
