asciilifeform played trilemaroulette, and got http://trilema.com/2014/i-saw-and-was-saddened/ vintage lul
asciilifeform: wonder what happened to subj d00d
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: uy1 temps in-range, for 8th day; and so at all times other than when that battery's charging
mircea_popescu: wasn't he here last year with the "media company" with no dns resolvers ?
asciilifeform: iirc that was weev
mircea_popescu: this is weev also.
asciilifeform: ( or are they same.. )
asciilifeform: aa
asciilifeform: aite then
BingoBoingo: They are the same
asciilifeform: puzzler -- solved.
mircea_popescu: went by "rabite" back then (if memory serves, before discovering "white supremacist" via usg's free housing services)
asciilifeform: iirc his lettre de cachet got cancelled on a technicality, somehow
asciilifeform: at least Officially. naodays gotta wonder whether was 'technicality' or not
mircea_popescu: it's kinda how ~any decision in http://trilema.com/2013/the-sops-or-what-might-you-expect-from-government-clerks/ goes.
asciilifeform: given that he's done ~0 but to harmlessly 'rezistenta prin cultura' since
mircea_popescu: i don't know that there ever was a "conviction" that stood other than by sheer disinterest of the convicted.
mircea_popescu: otherwise, much as the conviction rate is 100%, the reversal rate is also 100%.
asciilifeform: iirc that ulbricht d00d appealed endlessly
asciilifeform: ( last i knew , still was )
asciilifeform: nsa decree 'unhappened' his what to appeal with.
mircea_popescu: give it a few years, what "endlessly"
asciilifeform: ( tried to present the obv. fact of tor diddlage, was thrown out on 'national seekoority grounds' etc )
asciilifeform: not to mention the other '9000' d00dz sitting on 'parallel constructed' evidences.
mircea_popescu: to quote the prophets, "Fortunately, your chances of being awarded SSI are 100%. ("Not for me!" Again, it's not for you.) You may be awarded it on the first try; you may be denied and then get it on appeal; you may need an SSI hearing before the judge; or you may apply five or six times and finally get it after ten years. But if you are persistent, you will get it."
mircea_popescu: also ""You"= your doc who fills out a packet with specific questions; and maybe a lawyer who processes the massive amounts of other paperwork, and argues your case, and charges about 20% of a year's award.
mircea_popescu: "show" has a very specific legal definition: whatever the judge feels like that day. I have been involved in thousands of these SSI cases, and to describe the system as arbitrary is to describe Blake Lively as "fair.""
asciilifeform: tlp eh
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: iirc he was discussing rando hobos, rather than miscreant cacheted by personal decree of obummer tho
mircea_popescu: that was 2003 or so. in the intervening 15 years the principle expanded out of the empire of inner city mammies / "social workers".
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you ever heard of liver tissue eating out tumour ?
asciilifeform: sure
mircea_popescu: on planet backwards, or what.
asciilifeform: possibly i read it backwards?
asciilifeform: y'mean tu
asciilifeform: mour eating liver ?
asciilifeform: that -- heard. and of dog biting man.
asciilifeform: man biting dog, not heard
mircea_popescu: ...
mircea_popescu: right.
asciilifeform: how does it plug in tho
mircea_popescu: cuz of course pseudo-rational process of fat female niggers stomped out rational process of traditional law, rather than the other way around,
mircea_popescu: and thus therefore of fucking course the manner in which tlp described welfare courts working in 2003 is how general court works in 2019
mircea_popescu: over timeline, liver becomes more like tumour, not vice-versa.
asciilifeform: the mamies win their appeals cuz there's 100mil of'em and system aint set up to send ~all~ of'em downriver, there aint enuff clinks to house'em all. whereas 'terrorists' in the 'supermax' there's a coupla dozen of, and i've yet to heard of 1 being cut loose on appeal
mircea_popescu: give it time, it's definitely happening.
mircea_popescu: heck, most of bush's "never-releasable" kidnap victims were meanwhile released.
asciilifeform: iirc about half yea
mircea_popescu: twas half back in i dunno even, 2015 maybe.
mircea_popescu: the case where "forever-and-ever" promise beneficiary actually brings action against the promiser, "they;'re supposed to feed and clothe me, porca vaca" isn't far off.
asciilifeform: there's precedent -- e.g. the fella who tried to plug brezhnev, actually got out when su ran out -- after doing 30yrs in phonebooth-sized oubliette
asciilifeform: so i guess could.

mircea_popescu: if you construct a "regime" out of the thin veneer of pop-socialism, myopic as all get-out and with all the intellectual prowess of earthworms, what the fuck do you expect permanence.
mircea_popescu: yearence is a wonder.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in other great accomplishments of the scots, "the highland schottische is a partnered country dance that apparently originated in Bohemia."

BingoBoingo: Mocky: Will do
BingoBoingo: In other news one of several competing "Presidents" of Venezuela (Think Iraq's Chalabi) is going to be holding a rally across from the Tres Cruses Shopping and National Bus Terminal here in Uruguay

mircea_popescu: a
BingoBoingo has seen other less acute USG.BLUE productions here
mircea_popescu: they're so lulzy, with their little dress-up cons.
mircea_popescu: usg.cosplay ~= usg.*
BingoBoingo expects something like http://bingology.net/2018/12/17/the-expocannabis-an-executive-report/ minus the vendor booths and condensed into an hour or so
mircea_popescu: meanwhile at the lulzfarm,
mircea_popescu: MRExtreme 52M Dom "Hi LordMP, I will be travelling to Costa Rica with my slave. Do you have any (kinky) tips ? Have a nice day MRExtreme" LordMPofTMSR "You can start with the customary six months of log reading ; other than that specific channel I have nothing to say to uppity plebs."
BingoBoingo: But I'll get the updates. Dude's apparently not even setting his pulpit up in the Pope's designated spot in Tres Cruces
mircea_popescu: universalism is not an xtian sect!!!1
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in lulz : trilema gets referral spam from "esif22.zcodesys.hop.clickbank.net" ; the unpacking is : https://zcodesystem.com/affiliates.html (some "betting" scam) is being pushed via clickbank (principal affiliate clearhinghouse) by some guy whose code is esif22. the idea is that if (naive) webmaster clicks (or publishes his referrer list for others to click) the clickbank item will count a click "sent by" this esif22
mircea_popescu: dood whoever he is.
mircea_popescu: so the dood's businessplan is, 1. get a list of websites ; 2. while $list do curl -e "esif22.zcodesys.hop.clickbank.net"; done.
mircea_popescu: first fucking thing on the scam's landing page being "* Note: The base commission is set to 50% to reduce affiliate fraud from newbie affiliates. After 90 days and 10 sales you can request to be moved to 60% commission tier."
mircea_popescu: beeecause... well... esif22 isn't the first http://btcbase.org/log/2018-08-01#1838623 in the history ~of this particular scam~. nor the 100th. ☝︎

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah, some bum/dockworker "being a blogger" back in ye olde days before trilema.
asciilifeform: aaa
mircea_popescu: good enough in open spaces, but intolerable indoors.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what did he write about ?
asciilifeform: (i.e. why memorable ? )
mircea_popescu: memorable because he came to trilema conference before #trilema/tmsr/bitcoin even, and impressed the girls with his "manly" odours.
asciilifeform: lol!!
mircea_popescu: you realise, there were eg http://trilema.com/2009/nsfw-meet-trilema-editia-ii/
mircea_popescu: in 2009.

Mocky: will do
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform meanwhile found it : http://trilema.com/2009/visurat-s-a-dat-de-goala/ (notable for saying "yesterday at [film festival] i saw two films. one was "the happiest girl in the world" and i found myself in there. i laughed, i felt a bitter taste in the mouth, and i realised i might end up like that", and then FAILING to make the connection with http://trilema.com/2017/alexandru-osvald-pastorel-teodoreanu/#footnote_17
mircea_popescu: _75674 when mocked for it.)
mircea_popescu: just, you know, illiterate simpletons in no sense romanian, because you can't be romanian without ready access to cultural reference, the entire nation exists of naught else.
mircea_popescu: there was a whole bunch of these, incidentally, http://trilema.com/2010/extemporal-la-venerologie/ tells the story of some other rando "blogger" (they seriously went about pompously http://trilema.com/2011/cred-ca-pe-alocuri-se-exagereaza/#selection-67.167-67.602 -ing all over the place ) who failed to make the distinction between contraception and venereal disease prevention, and then "got upset" when mocked for it.
mircea_popescu: "getting upset" is this specific behaviour, a la : http://trilema.com/2009/krossfire-sau-vlad-stoiculescu/#comment-127467 (practically a sort of sand-meet-head, i guess).
BingoBoingo: In clarifications, the Tres Cruces rally is to support other president, other Vzla president is in Caracas doing color revolution
mircea_popescu: how many of these are there ?
BingoBoingo: Apparently Trump's cabinet has picked one
BingoBoingo: Se llama Guaidó
BingoBoingo: I'm seeing photos of freeways full of people in Caracas, but it is hard to tell how many kilos of dry noodles they are getting for showing up
mircea_popescu: well, either it turns lulzy or fizzly.
BingoBoingo: Either way, those noodles came from somewhere
mircea_popescu: china, lol.
BingoBoingo: lol
BingoBoingo: And in old stories, http://qntra.net/2015/08/hearns-blacklist-shenanigans/#comment-123318
mircea_popescu: "TOR is a software that with a utter enormous vivid concealed allows you to latibulize from prying eyes the exemplary shooting go together you do and did on the Internet." ?!
mircea_popescu: lol, what is hidden internet. congrats to the orcs!
BingoBoingo: I promise, all I did was kill the links. Yes its spam, but lulzy.
mircea_popescu: i can see that word making a republican career. "buncha latibulizers!!!"
BingoBoingo: Indeed

BingoBoingo: Anyways, the recent history of Vzla is informative with respect to the US's future, competing with Argentina. As recently as the 1990's Vzla was a rich Germany. Chavez cut it down into a starving Ukraine. Maduro heard the people asking for more socialism and is giving them exactly what they want. Now USG is set to make a Somalia.
asciilifeform reads 'vzla' , immediately thinks 'vuvuzela'
mircea_popescu: seems about right
BingoBoingo: Anyways middle class housing in uruguay means maybe a garage. In Vzla middle class housing means a six car garage. The country gets poorer, but can't eat garage.
BingoBoingo: 80s-90s Vzla had the money to build what they saw n the VHS tapes
mircea_popescu: qatar smoking nervously in a corner.
mircea_popescu: this is their exact future, decade or two down the road, now that they've blown their chance.
asciilifeform: how does 'poor with petro' work anyway
mircea_popescu: like so : impudent while it flows and confused when it stops.
asciilifeform: aah
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Surprisingly quickly. Not all Petro is equal as Vzla shows
BingoBoingo: Every petrol has a skillset it needs to be brought to market.
BingoBoingo: Chavez and Canadian oil sands took Vzla's skill reservoir
BingoBoingo: But, now Canada loses money on the oil sand anyway
asciilifeform: ye olde 'petrostans are macroscale version of bankrupt lottery winner derp' hypothesis
asciilifeform: seems to fit.
mircea_popescu: rather.
BingoBoingo: Anyways, CNN is hearing "Sí, se puede" in chants and translating it to "Yes we can". I am hearing "Si se puede" more of an "if he can..."
mircea_popescu: hahaha
mircea_popescu: right, si is ambiguously yes and if, therefore "if it's permissible" is perfectly valid translation.
BingoBoingo: Seriously, conjugation! Sí nos podemos, no fucking WE in that chant

BingoBoingo: I'll have to dig
BingoBoingo going to be digging anyways because the CNN "yes we can"-ism is begging for a blog post
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo honestly i'd expect the least ambiguous rendering of "yes we can" would be "si que podemos!"
mircea_popescu: no explicit we either, but at least puts all the accents in the intended places, it's just how you communicate the notion in spanish.
BingoBoingo: TBF, when Obama got stood up in the "Yes, we can" meme in English, I doubt anyone meant "yes we can" to actually that instead of "Yes he can", but English has been broken for a while
mircea_popescu: i thought it was more a case of "yes we can [push affirmative action victim from http://btcbase.org/log/2014-07-19#761494 sadness to presidency]" ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2014-07-19 03:16 mircea_popescu: so, this poor unfortunate soul found herself living her parent's dream : an assistant professor! at the prestigious ubb no less!
mircea_popescu: that poor guy, incidentally. first they told him he can be university professor! and he believed. and, unending misery, can barely read, yet has to "teach" constitutional law.
mircea_popescu: then they told him he can be president! and he believed. and... unending http://qntra.net/2015/11/obama-at-asean-money-overwhelms-ideas/ misery, cockpuppet for every passing putin.
