mod6: Ah, thanks asciilifeform.
mod6: No clue, tbh.
asciilifeform: mod6: iirc he moved coupla yrs ago, it was in the log
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: iirc in usa they traditionally use sugar, rather than salt, for these.. ( why -- i do not know )
mircea_popescu: o look at that, us-istan reads just like 1989s romania.
mircea_popescu: o check it out, jurov moving. i wonder where to ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i was digging for that 1 trilema piece where 'the housewife... waits until wolf's hour of night to cook the food, that's when gas pressure' but didn't in o(1) find
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform http://trilema.com/2009/comunismul-capitalismul-si-oprimarea-femeii/#selection-59.493-59.579
asciilifeform: aa!
asciilifeform: yes that one
mircea_popescu: this shared search thing works quite well huh.
asciilifeform: tho for somereason i thought i read it in an engl one
mircea_popescu: possibru it exists also in translation
asciilifeform: was apparently here http://trilema.com/2017/%D0%9A%D1%82%D0%BE-%D1%82%D1%8B-%D0%BF%D0%BE-%D0%B6%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BD%D0%B8/#selection-151.0-185.218
asciilifeform: for bonus lulz, the gas infrastructure of these people (gringostan, not shoemaker's ro, i cannot comment re the latter) is a lul. not even to mention the fact that they pretend to also ~export~...
asciilifeform: leaks on erry other street intersection ( and for years at a time, folx call'em in, diggers dig, 3days later again leak )
asciilifeform: or the pumping stations ( unmarked on maps, cuz 'strategic', but quite visible from street ) ☟︎
asciilifeform: 1 , not far from asciilifeform , used to have 3 concentric concertina fences ( dunno whether minefield b/w or not ) , then coupla yrs ago all but 1 removed , i suspect they got tired of painting 3
asciilifeform: or when they switched from iron pipe to corrugated aluminum + rubber hose ( yes exactly like one sees on sovok kitchen stoves, but ~buried~ and km-length )
asciilifeform: and whoknows what else, i'm not even aficionado of subj
mircea_popescu: pretty sad.
mircea_popescu: truth of the matter is, natgas is actually ~quite abrasive~, esp in climates where it cools significantly.
mircea_popescu: how the fuck they expect to make those pipes work is anyone's guess. "rubber", as fucking if.
asciilifeform: slow zimbabwefication. ( with the diff that ~this~ zimbabwe has winter )
trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-01-30#1890704 << only where it matters. human hands in, human hands out. within bot, go to town. even if the approach isn't perfect, it makes exploits a pain in the ass to monetize, so why bother. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-01-30 16:10 asciilifeform: imho the only possible arg against it is if you have e.g. 2 hands but 500 worth of process. but evidently jurov , trinque , et al had <= 2 hands worth
trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-01-30#1890817 << brother flies; I grab controls only to amuse myself ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-01-30 18:29 asciilifeform: e.g. trinque
trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-01-31#1891133 << this is correct, and where cuntoo lacks proper trb deps (if it does) cuntoo is wrong ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-01-31 02:14 asciilifeform: i dun recall whether trinque specifically tested this, but as i understand it oughta work precisely like-so.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I suspect the Italians hated the boat and don't subsidize hawaiian cane sugar
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> how the fuck they expect to make those pipes work is anyone's guess. "rubber", as fucking if. << If I went back to old country I don't think I could ever buy a house after seeing the local concrete glory.
jurov: I have already moved, just few kilometers, still living in Slovakia, but it took better part of year to clean up the old flat for sale, the building has been renovated too.

BingoBoingo: And in other news, CIA stooge interim president rejects dialogue and diplomacy https://archive.is/hYdP3
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i seem to recall a trilema article about stealing a country, by creating an imaginary alt-country and just pretending that's it ; i can't quite find it now, and it's a shame, considering how prophetic it turns out to be.
BingoBoingo: Will look, think I remember a title snippet
mircea_popescu: there's of course http://trilema.com/2016/and-they-wont-fucking-yield/#selection-215.0-223.427 also in the vein, but there was an exact one ;/
mircea_popescu: mebbe alf has it indexed.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-08-01#1511945 ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-08-01 00:44 mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-08-01#1511937 << oh, "color revolutions" dun work ? tell you what, we'll steal your country's exports and with the proceeds finance an alt-country we'll pretend is realy your country. ha-ha!
asciilifeform: ^ was a log item.
mircea_popescu: oh it was huh!
mircea_popescu: ty
asciilifeform: np
asciilifeform: (in fact had it indexed.)
mircea_popescu: pretty shameful that this human stain still exists, incidentally.
mircea_popescu: i'd readily trade a few endangered species or w/e, an australia or two glassed, for its erradication.
asciilifeform: it's 1 of those brit-empire algos the current derps 'inherited' (brits packed it in india but left behind a pakistan; usg , then, in germany (standing), korea (standing), vietnam (oops), taiwan (standing), etc
BingoBoingo: NO, pretty sure there's a trilema
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo a rly ?
BingoBoingo: http://trilema.com/2014/how-to-start-your-own-country-adnotated/
asciilifeform: dun seem like this one's in there
BingoBoingo reading
mircea_popescu: i mean... it's a great read and all, but doesn't happen to be what i had in mind. pretty sure the logline was it.
BingoBoingo not seeing that in their either
asciilifeform: for completeness, oughta include the laughably failed attempts -- the london-based 'alt-gov'-s of poland, ukrs, etc
mircea_popescu: lotta failed attempts, and the success of the successes extremely fucking dubious.
mircea_popescu: they're the sorta "fix that works while not needed" nonsense "elected representative governments" tend to come up with
mircea_popescu: or, in the immortal words of a ~very typical~ (if coincidentally naive enough orc as to be plain about it), http://trilema.com/2014/the-disadvantages-of-living-among-idiots/#selection-59.2-59.124
mircea_popescu: that's what THEY ALL SAY. "i deeply regret nothing else and nothing besides having had the misfortune of being in the white house when our taiwan turned out to be a paper wrap on burning fire and no more -- all the OTHERS had it much better, because then the paper wrap LOOKED solid enough"
asciilifeform: these are the folx for whom e.g. tyre fire of libya is a 'success' ( ghaddafi dead? check. no unified arabistan ? check. etc )
mircea_popescu: keks.
mircea_popescu: libya is why they lost syria.
mircea_popescu: russkis bothered with it ~specifically~ to exploit usg's shocking cuntitude as a superlative of weakness and for no other imaginable reason.
BingoBoingo: The only people for whom libya was a success are the cucks who enjoy Germany getting "BlaKKKED (TM)(R)"
