"Clearly Superior Technologies is a family business." aka a dork manaloning somewhere with the support of a dedicated wife does NOT constitute life ; much in the manner "perhaps some bacteria on mars" does not mean "extraterrestrial civilisation". ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-01-07 20:11 asciilifeform: and the latter in particular counts in favour of the hypothesis that yes, there's life somewhere, inca not exterminated errything.
asciilifeform: yaya only olympus is life
mircea_popescu: the capacity for life of menalone is ~potential~. it is not actual.
asciilifeform: and only ambrosia, food
mircea_popescu: men alone are not actually alive ; they are suspected of being perhaps capable of coming alive. that's all.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you see some problem with distinctions in general or just some of them ?
asciilifeform: i've nfi if even equipped to comment, per the scheme, possibly never been alive
mircea_popescu: eh.
mircea_popescu: dude's not publishing patches for anyone to sign, and your kind if ineffectual attempts to sign them anyway don't enact patches out of a void.
asciilifeform: i dun know how to sign a pipe wrench either
asciilifeform: yet i dare say i've got a pretty good one here
mircea_popescu: if the standard is low enough for stco to pass, then 1941s france contained 10mn resistence fighters : 9.9 mn of which carefully preserved a room somewhere in the house "where no german set foot", through the procedure of no german happening to want to.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform same way you signed a fg, which is the exact same fucking thing.
asciilifeform: you may recall that the impossibility of signing a concrete, physical fg, continues to give asciilifeform headache
mircea_popescu: imagine this wonder, "we're winning world war 2, llc", manufacturer of extremely effectual shove handles. THEY NEVER SPLINTER!
asciilifeform: i aint invented a means to sign physical objs yet (and afaik nobody else has either)
mircea_popescu: maybe i'm naive, but i'm satisfied with the extant methods as they stand.
mircea_popescu: "a) here's signed ideal ; b) here's concrete -- c) check"
asciilifeform: i aint about to argue with a satisfied customer
asciilifeform: but the particular problem is imho real.
mircea_popescu: why not ? the true mark of the true engineer! :D
mircea_popescu: remember that time corp imploded through engineers invovled telling anyone not to buy product, it sucks, they're making way better one ?

a111: Logged on 2019-01-07 20:23 asciilifeform: this was the thrust of asciilifeform's arg in the orig thread -- yes there are still people-who-are-people. even inside reich. and no they havent yet all hoisted the republic banner ( each for own reasons, whether ignorance, or 'gotta pay bills NOW', or whatnot.) but they do make things worth having. and sell ( i suspect largely to one another.. )

mircea_popescu: even the handcuffs are now zip ties.
mircea_popescu: and no, you can't ressurect a dead argument on the tail end of having been hammered into the ground. there's nobody alive ; there's no berths ; you can pursue this fantasy at a terrible cost anyway.
asciilifeform: it's impossible to 'win argument' against 'tanana cant hear you', yes

mircea_popescu: doesn't seem to me it's how it went, but aaalrighty.
mircea_popescu: in any case, it's the (heavily promoted, of course) fantasy of the "geek" in mainstream ustard culture, "oh, i'll be SO GOOD IN CLASS little slut rosa's defo gonna get wet for me". as cameron diaz well points out : never gonna fucking happen.
mircea_popescu: there ~isn't~ a way to be good ~at your chosen field~ such that you're a successful chowdry in incadom.
mircea_popescu: yes, it was an extremely popular delusion in the 90s even, which is to say "within living memory", hence "entrepreneurial culture" and all that wank. nevertheless, delusions, howsoever popular (and therefore osmotically persuasive) they may get, stay delusions.
mircea_popescu: for as long starvation / being eaten alive by wild animals while very fucking cold is not on the table, little slut rosa has other shit to attend to ; outside of deliberate and constructed exclusion of the stupid poor from the workings of society, the stupid poor have no incentive to respect same. and so on.
asciilifeform: it's what 'vhs 1980s' was shorthand for, neh, 'work on salary and afford 3 houses and boat'
asciilifeform: went away long ago, if existed, i never saw it
mircea_popescu: and since we're here, let's go on an archeological detour.
mircea_popescu: the (batshit insane, in modern terminology) claim of the xtians that their fsb controls "life everlasting" was ~meaningful~ in times past, and built out of the following articulation of logic :
mircea_popescu: as the life habits [they stole from "those pagans" the stoics] promoted longevity, it was a trivial observation (for they inclined to observe, of course) that xtians ~live longer~ than non-xtians. THIS was the substance of the entirety of the supernatural claim, for a thousand years or so, and yes, to the orc mind it makes sense that the bearded dood in the sky who makes these weirdos die 70s not 50s perhaps has more of the s
mircea_popescu: ame in store ofr later.
asciilifeform: the hindu did this even better iirc
mircea_popescu: as rational inquiry divorced longevity from religiosity, the claim lost its meaning, but it is ever present in strangeola like "smoking is a sin".
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the reason there were three religions in the mediteranean was that specifically all three delivered this.

mircea_popescu: well yes. the socialist trade is always a case of "substitute vinyl siding for brick wall".
mircea_popescu: "substitute moses for zeno" same exact deal.
mircea_popescu: now then : all these fantasies, "i'll worship so purely i'll never die", "i'll get a paycheck so huge i won't have to go on dates anymore", "i'll be that kurchatov" rely on something specific : there's gotta be a stalin. there's no stalin of long living, nor is there a stalin of rooseveltian socialism -- the thing's built ~specifically~ (and ~purposefully~, deliberately) as a "stalinism without any stalin".

mircea_popescu: well, in all fairness to the http://trilema.com/2016/welcome-to-baluba-island/ cuck in question -- if your wife fucks a dozen or so "bulls" before they do you in the ass per week say, and it's been a hundred weeks, you're looking at five or so thousand of these having spent a day with you within the past half week, which is the "relation" standard contemplated.
mircea_popescu: that one in x thousand black gay-for-pay tards (who are also drug users, nqa) will od a year... gimme a break.
mircea_popescu: in short : it's a wonder there weren't two dozen.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo the ridiculous notion " Gemmel Moore, a 26 year old male twink" was ~keepin a journal~. srsly ? with what ?
BingoBoingo: His community college art school supplies?
mircea_popescu: oh, you mean the ipad ? i think they cut off what he was trying to say.
BingoBoingo: Anyways, first incident was dismissed after pantsuit outrage over the investigation as an attack on the old dude's lifestyle
asciilifeform: hey, 'universal literacy'(tm)(r), neh
mircea_popescu: "Edward Bernard Peter Buckmelter began his career as a fashion model in Europe" keks.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you may think what you wish ; i've seen the fetards and i know better.
asciilifeform: no i get
mircea_popescu: the odds a 20something ~black~ ~male~ actually keeping a journal are 10ppm or so ; having the capacity to even in principle do so 0.1% sorta deal
asciilifeform: it's a lul tho, the incas actually think they have 'literacy'
asciilifeform: ( 'can read stop sign? here's yer school diploma' )
mircea_popescu: He formerly served on the steering committee of the Stonewall Democratic Club. He has donated "nearly $30,000" to Democratic candidates like Hillary Clinton, Ted Lieu, Pete Aguilar and Raja Krishnamoorthi as well as the Getting Things Done PAC. << dude give me a fucking break ?
mircea_popescu: since when the fuck is 30k a sum of money.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: they have this custom, iirc you can donate 1 orcbuck and still show up on 'list of donor'
BingoBoingo: Other sources report ~500k still small. More interesting is the information brokerage he sold in his 30's.
mircea_popescu: pretty ridoinculous all around.
mircea_popescu: aaanyways.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform my point is rather that the democrats ~are very fucking poor~.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: pretty sure most of their dough comes from bezos
asciilifeform: ( and saud et al )
mircea_popescu: precisely the "russian oligarchs" pseudo-economic model, yes.
BingoBoingo: Except cut a couple figures off for the US version
mircea_popescu: somehow this doesn't bother them, "hey, our entire understanding of money is, let's get some schmuck a bunch of taxchest so he can http://trilema.com/2012/dan-voiculescu-acest-gunoi-abject/ all over."
BingoBoingo: Anyways, it seems the reason he didn't pile up 2 dozen stiffs over the years is that same poverty
mircea_popescu: yeah, they ~party~ ie, don't keep a ready supply of the stuff (chemicals, biologicals) for whenever feel like, but rather whenever the "pipe" leaks something run out and buy some of each, twice a eyar or w/e.
mircea_popescu: the unsteady approach being in itself a great catalyst of both the paroxistic problem encountered and the incapacity for management displayed.
mircea_popescu: (that article, btw, remarkable because i told ro bezos "Si, draga Varanule, nu-i clar ca mai ai cinci ani" ie, "dear reptile, it's not clear you have five years left" in 2012 -- by 2014 he was in jail. because hey, mp is right now and again accidentally which is to say 1024/1024 occurences on his blog etc etc)
BingoBoingo: Well, middle class fellow constantly held up by his peers as a party elite
asciilifeform: it's how they od, also
asciilifeform: ( observe, goering -- morphinist from ww1 to '45, and never od )
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: was that the ro berezovsky or who
mircea_popescu: just about yeah. dood ran off with the commies accounts receivable in 1989, so that isarescu was stuck inventing acreditives for fuel ships to unload rather than leave that winter.
mircea_popescu: that was something else, that january.
mircea_popescu: anyway, twas a mere coupla billion. which, at the time, was an IMMENSE sum, that ceausescu had gathered together over decades of hard fucking work for his 20mn slavecrop.
mircea_popescu: now it's like... hey, remember when bitcoin had JUST breached 1k and "mp is a billionaire" still "controversial" / difficult to swallow for the tards talking ?
mircea_popescu: it's one hell of an object to contemplate, this evolution, for someone who was there in the 80s. "you mean every penny saved off every old schmuck that died in soviet-style economical health care system / every bled out 1950s style (in the us, heh, http://trilema.com/2009/comunismul-capitalismul-si-oprimarea-femeii/#selection-71.0-71.8 ) woman because contraceptives cost money whereas her slavespawn is worth money, ALL THAT,
mircea_popescu: every night spent in the cold to "save fuel" by whole neighbourhoods, the inaccessible meat or bananas or whatever -- ALL OF IT!!! went into one "humongous" pile of "the people's wealth" that was, looking in own pockets, not retrospectively that worth the mention ?
mircea_popescu: what the fuck more is there, if this dun suffice re vanitas vanitatum what does.
mircea_popescu: alas, poor yorick. i knew him, horatio...
mircea_popescu shall bbl.
asciilifeform: it's exactly scale-model ver of the ru 'privatization' afaik.
asciilifeform: ( and for all i know, ro actually involved moar 'turkeydollar', as by mircea_popescu's and other accts was 'tighter ship' )
asciilifeform: meanwhile, in paleo-entomology, https://archive.ph/ot5UK#selection-6697.0-6705.198
asciilifeform: 'There were people working behind the scenes trying to get the Symbolics VLM stuff legitimately released in some way to the hobbyist community - and this is likely to throw a wrench into that effort'
asciilifeform: ( 11 yr.-vintage wank re asciilifeform's orig warez link )
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-01-08#1885903 << 'pile' wento to washington/eurpoistan coffers, kept the reich going 30yrs past its expiration date ☝︎

mircea_popescu: in other sad lulz : etsy moved into the new york building where a scottish immigrant invented the prefab packaging box during the gilded age. who knows, maybe it rubs off ? maybe perhaps http://trilema.com/2016/the-%d0%ba%d0%b2%d0%b0%d1%81-bdsm-party/#comment-118604 ?
asciilifeform: and hey, iirc google (or was it crapple?) occupies the old sgi campus
asciilifeform: similar
mircea_popescu: myeah.
