asciilifeform: ( unlike in arabistan, usg has ~ok record of wins in banana continent )
mircea_popescu: true ; also kinda old record, but yeah.
asciilifeform: perhaps idea is to stuff maduro into the recently-emptied hole where noriega sat
BingoBoingo: Noriega wasn't really sitting on much other than CIA friendship before getting stuffed into a hole
BingoBoingo: The problem with Incan topology is how hard it is to see the lost teeth for the people wagging dogs

But... unlike republican spain was not in the gold extraction business... empire running away and all that, Vzla is.
mircea_popescu: problem is, you can only shoot hostage once.
mircea_popescu: anyway, should be lulzy to see if china moves in to buy the oil.
BingoBoingo: I see no reason they and Mexico wouldn't
mircea_popescu: anyway, since there's ~0 results FROM ACTUAL FUCKING VENEZUELA on any kind of google/bing/duckduckgo/whatever the fuck for a search of venezuela, let's link here some actual venues :

mircea_popescu: http://www.liderendeportes.com/noticias/baseball/otorgan-a-panama-sede-de-la-serie-del-caribe/
mircea_popescu: there's certainly no better reason to read whatever http://trilema.com/2017/i-think-they-might-be-overdoing-it-in-places/#selection-35.0-35.52 esltards on the topic. exactly like that ro kid, they've got nothing to say an' no particular skill in sayin' it.
mircea_popescu: point in case : Maryhen Jimenez Morales ("is a PhD candidate in politics at University of Oxford.") : " the system of personalised power and governance which the country has experienced for decades did not begin with Hugo Chavez ; The charismatic aristocrat Simon Bolivar ; He was a man in search of glory and a military officer who believed in top-down decision-making. ; The caudillo rule did not disappear with Bolivar's death
mircea_popescu: . His successors, including Jose Antonio Paez, Antonio Guzman Blanco, or Juan Vincente Gomez followed in his footsteps towards personalised power. ; they were more preoccupied with personal aggrandisement than building strong institutions in the the nascent Venezuelan state. ; Personalised power, elitism and authoritarianism continued to dominate the Venezuelan political arena ; His only focus should be on building alliances
mircea_popescu: and public consensus around the idea of restoring broad-based institutional democracy in Venezuela." bla bla bla bla bla in that inept vein untill she falls over.
mircea_popescu: in other words, it's perfectly fucking clear ~what exactly~ the talking cunthead dun like about venezuela, and the world in general.
diana_coman: yay, m-r on ffa; now I'll really have to schedule ffa feast during breaks from work, lol
BingoBoingo: Well, that does explain why the CIA picked such a manicured numale in the tradition of Canada's princess, and France's Ms. Blakkked. Ty for feeding the local media outlets.
asciilifeform: https://archive.is/Rn0Gp << for thread-completeness, orlol on ukrazuela.
asciilifeform: '...Bolton did one better and called him “guiado” which could be Spanish for “remote-controlled.” (Was that a Freudian slip or just another one of Bolton’s senior moments?)' etc
BingoBoingo: Meanwhile in local news, trash drama continues in other barrios https://www.elobservador.com.uy/nota/crisis-en-adeom-los-radicales-renunciaron-a-sus-cargos-y-varela-no-es-mas-el-presidente--201912819954

asciilifeform: meanwhile as of ch16a: libffa : 5142 loc ; ffacalc : 1279; for total 6421 (incl. readme, manifest, comments.)
asciilifeform: the only 'heavy' component remaining to weld on, is keccakism.

asciilifeform: animatedgif!111
asciilifeform: ( shrink'em to 64x64 pixels and... )
mircea_popescu: bahahaha what is this, brasil ?
asciilifeform: lol
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu et al : anybody have a handy piece of bash to count ~nonempty~ lines in a dir ?
mircea_popescu: in all files in a dir you mean ?
asciilifeform: aha, recurse
mircea_popescu: find . -name '*.php' | xargs wc -l or w/e it is you want
asciilifeform: that dundoit
asciilifeform: it counts empties
mircea_popescu: empty line is what, nothing but 0x04 on it ?
asciilifeform: 0a yea
mod6: I think something like `grep -v "^$"` will give you all the non-empty lines from a file.
mod6: Just combine that with your find/xargs and you should have it.
asciilifeform: nope
asciilifeform: gives entire file.
mod6: aight.
asciilifeform: grep -P '\S' file apparently does tho.
asciilifeform: cat * | grep -P '\S' | wc -l in ea. dir does the job.
asciilifeform: this gives 4013 (libffa) , 1047 (ffacalc) .
asciilifeform: approx. what i estimated.
asciilifeform: comments ( grep -P '^\s*--' ) turn out to be 1835 ln in libffa and 390 in ffacalc.
asciilifeform: ada does not permit multiline comments a la cpp, so this was easier than expected.
BingoBoingo: So 4013 lines of which 1835 are comments and 1047 of which 390 are comments?
asciilifeform: correct
BingoBoingo: tyvm
asciilifeform: total mass of the sores, to complete the thread, stands at 256kB.

BingoBoingo: Apparently they want the Chicoms accomodate the white worm desire for an English Single Language bubble
asciilifeform: at asciilifeform's local uni, even decade ago engineering, maffs, etc. were ~solid china ( + a bit of india ). these days even moar solid -- evidently they didn't get the memo yet, that miami is full
BingoBoingo: Do the Chinese and Indians even want Miami? I suspect they have their own favored cities for capture.
asciilifeform: the greater miami.
asciilifeform: y'know, that thing they think they're going to when they buy ticket.
BingoBoingo: aha
BingoBoingo: For a sample of the local memes https://i.redd.it/sy0ltggru9d21.jpg The larger pink area in the overlay is "Departamento 21 de Uruguay"
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: elaborate ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Given Argentina's long sink into irrelevancy, the locals tend to think of Argentina as a diseased extension of Uruguay.
asciilifeform: aa lol
BingoBoingo: A lot of the current Uruguayo malaise is being blamed on Mujica/RaulSendic/Kircher/Macri Kirchner and Macri can flip places, but that's roughly the order of blame assignment
BingoBoingo: Though this week the big fount of discontent is the heatwave and blue freshwater of Montevideo's beaches.
BingoBoingo: (To be clear the blue problem is Cyanobacteria)
BingoBoingo: My chunk of the Rio de la Plata has a problem which is the bane of retention ponds and small creeks back in old country
asciilifeform: re argintines, somehow i entirely escaped finding out about 'villa-31' ( http://ru-ar.ru/villa31 notbad www re subj ) , rio-style favela right inside b-a
BingoBoingo was under the impression most cities containing over 250,000 bipeds were majority favela by land area
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: seems like it'sa right & proper favela, complete with zero signs on Official maps & 100% pinched mains current
BingoBoingo: On this side of the river they keep the streets labeled while doing 100% pinched mains current. At least until the police do one of their post-dawn raids on a local "boca de pasta" and the electricity police accompany to "regularize" the pinched mains.
asciilifeform: the ru d00d's www is interesting, he makes living in buenosaires by giving ru folx guided tours. and his descriptions of the place moar or less concur with mircea_popescu's : 'unprofessionalism in all possible venues: quality of service in restaurant; lawyers who have nfi about law; clerks who cannot count; cabbies that ask you to show'em the way; barbers who cannot shave... you will wonder why argentines in the airport coming back f
asciilifeform: rom eu are carrying vacuum cleaners, tv sets, computers... country of deficits, like ye olde su'
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: apparently 'villa-31' standing for half century+ with 0 raids
BingoBoingo: The Uruguayo raids are a new phenomenon
BingoBoingo: Apparently at some point the local socialists called up Rudy Giulianni for advice on countering petty crime. But... the pichis still get their pasta base and the number of rapiñas keep climbing.
BingoBoingo: And the kids from Cerro keep coming into Pocitos and Buceo to spray the name of their Barrio on my Rambla
BingoBoingo doubts spray painting "Pocitos" on everything in Cerro would deter them instead of encouraging the behavior. Most of the graffiti from my earliest walks in Montevideo survives, including and especially the low effort tagging.
