mp_en_viaje: aha.
asciilifeform: iirc subsidiary of germany
asciilifeform subscribed for coupla yrs nao; seems to be the only 1 that worx in orcistans (as modem) at 0 extra cost. and overall 'cheap & angry'
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-19#1914711 << lol! variant of the phone thing?! 'old sow looks in mirror, magically transforms to beauty' ? mega-bizmodel ☝︎

Beauty brands and hardware manufacturers can choose any mirror hardware of their choice and can instantly run ModiFace AR technology adopted to their mirrors."
mp_en_viaje: ikr.
asciilifeform: all that's missing is an electric attachment that'll fuck'em also
mp_en_viaje: afaik most people don't want to get laid
mp_en_viaje: they want to could have gotten laid. ☟︎☟︎
mp_en_viaje: that electric attachment already internets.
diana_coman: I thought those mirrors/apps/whatevs were about showing how makeup/whatever would look like on the looker's face i.e. with a camera/pic taken not on model; anyways, supposedly if the "could have" was enough, everyone has it, what's to say they could not have gotten whatever at any time.
mp_en_viaje: it's altogether about replacing precious cuntlet as-she-is with a virtual imago that's more in line with her self-expectations.
mp_en_viaje: "making improvements" on http://trilema.com/2019/diviziuna-sexual-a-muncii-fetele-la-gym-io-la-vidya-%d0%9a%d0%b0%d0%ba-tot-acolo/#comment-129134 ; much stronger claim of representativity if "made by ai" than if "found on net"
diana_coman: myeah, I can see it; "ai and science sez it".
asciilifeform: diana_coman: the inevitable association in my head re subj , is how in national museum of natural history in washington, there was at one point a coin-operated thing that 'see yourself as chimpanzee' . ☟︎
asciilifeform: i guess they built one that worx in 'reverse gear' nao...
asciilifeform suspects that they took out the chimptron after certain users complained that the 'before' and 'after' pics were not sufficiently distinct...
asciilifeform: i suspect that mp_en_viaje is right, and even the 'ai beautifier' thing is redundant, all the machine needs to do is to work like the mirror in brothers grimm, whisper 'you are the fairest of them all' to the sow, will suffice. ☟︎
asciilifeform: meanwhile, in the oddities lint trap, 1 in 2^32 , elementarily, chance of this longfp 'naturally'. (did he 'mine' it?! lol)
diana_coman: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-20#1914735 - lolz, low and old tech! but yes, essentially the same thing, "see yourself as..." ☝︎

diana_coman: re fp no idea, some people are very unlucky, too!
BingoBoingo: So the headlines in Pantsuit press today almost all relate to http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-18#1914630 coming to an end. Turns out they did a modern democracy and made Sir Elliot of exquisite tastes king. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-05-18 07:42 mp_en_viaje: meanwhile the capitalists can claim to be marketing quality fiction, they've bridged the gap, see, they have both large herds of moomoos watching and also (plausibly-deniably) a good story being screened! and they even paid the author lotta money!
BingoBoingo: Such is the derealization of socialisms today
diana_coman: funnily enough I got the impression that ~nobody actually likes the ending (whatever it is, I have no idea re the whole "film")
BingoBoingo: Derps derping about it is ABOVE THE FOLD on all the outlets
BingoBoingo: On many of them today it is the only thing above the fold. Derps derping as analysis!

BingoBoingo: So a local kiosko underwent a change in ownership. Went from being a husband and wife operation to a father son operation. Soon afterwards they hire... security! ☟︎
BingoBoingo: Anytime they are open they have a big guy sitting out front dressed like a thug (to the extent folks can here) doing security
