BingoBoingo: In other news, people are dying on Mt. Everest because lines are too long for conditions
BingoBoingo: !Qlater tell trinque http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/kRyU4/?raw=true
lobbesbot: BingoBoingo: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: fucking idiots. "The very real risk of dying while trying to climb the world’s highest peak is part of the deal when attempting to summit Mount Everest. If the endeavor was foolproof and safe, it wouldn’t have the allure that it holds over so many people.'
mircea_popescu: no dude, the ONLY "allure" is that... NOT MANY PEOPLE DO IT. that was fucking it. back when everest was interesting, to british subjects, it was interesting because british empire, first and foremost, and because, like "find nile source" or "go to north pole", there just weren't that many people who dun it.
mircea_popescu: and by "that many" we mean EXACTLY ZERO.
mircea_popescu: somehow the zombie horde of muricans picked one of the three as their witlessing point. it's fucking unseemly ; the only thing "i climbed mount everest" does in a social context is communicate you gotta be fucking punched. like "being a nobel laureate" or "having won the oscars" or whatever other such zombie glory.
mircea_popescu: shoulda won the oscars in 1952, what the fuck is this lame-ass post-party shit, "for my kids' 5th birthday we hired michael's 3d reconstructed ghost to touch them on the dolly" / "we went to woodstock 2019 re-enaction" / "i sniffed the seat on which a hot woman sat six hours ago" etc.
BingoBoingo: I have met way too many people who have been to Machu Pichu since December 2017
BingoBoingo: Most of the tourists I met at the hostel whose mothers spoke English seem to have gone there, and Uruguay was just another checkmark somewhere before or after Iguazu depending on the whims of airline ticket prices
mircea_popescu: you know ?
mircea_popescu: buncha fucken wankers, "if i check these checkboxes..." what then ? "mp can't accuse me of being a wanker" ? gimme a fucking break.
BingoBoingo: Then again USG does college loans and not Machu Pichu loans. Now there's the situation where comparatively cheap Machu Pichu is a more reliable class signifier than college degree. Should have done it the other way around.
mircea_popescu: if only. what next, air guitar as a class signifier ?
BingoBoingo: Well, if 1950's USG said "Fuck College financing, GI bill's gonna send our veterans of foreign wars on foreign vacations"... Maybe education wouldn't have been so pantsuited
mircea_popescu: empire of impernanence, "you know what, instead of giving veterans forty acres and a mule, we'll sent them to florida".
BingoBoingo: Put it that way, the proposal isn't novel at all. Simply grew fast.
mircea_popescu: the only way to run a fucking army is a) you sign up for 25 years ; b) you rape and pillage -- get the equivalent loot share as precious metal medal after every fight ; c) when retiring you get plot of land and you are obligated to marry at least two local teenagers and fucking live there with their children.
mircea_popescu: nothing else even fucking qualifies as "war making" what the fuck, men lite.
BingoBoingo: Just can't make the the Italian mistake of letting them skimp on the armor because it's heavy.
mircea_popescu: the very weird thing with this set is that they don't even wanna skimp on the armor. ustardians suffer of ~0% of the classical euro failurem mode, of being too smart. they'll go to the fuckign gym just to instagram their abs.
trinque: mircea_popescu: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/EQgwi/?raw=true
lobbesbot: trinque: Sent 1 hour and 40 minutes ago: <BingoBoingo> http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/kRyU4/?raw=true
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: If that was the portion of the US they were recruiting. Instead they are having a single moms jobs program eat it all.
mircea_popescu: that's another thing, the army is ~specifically~ not for providing the stupid cunts back at home with a cushy dependoplan.
mircea_popescu: if they wanted those, they'd stay home.
mircea_popescu: in other lulz : bubblegum pop was a studio & producer driven attempt at re-couperating the change pumped into the poor and the stupid. not music in any sense, much like youtube crap today ; but it was marketed to teens, and holy shit look through the charts -- whole thing reads like a "bumpkin discovered sugar" testament.
mircea_popescu: 1910 fruitgum company ? the lemon pipers, the ohio express , "sugar, sugar", "dizzy"... need i go on ?
mircea_popescu: shit came on plastic-covered cardboard in back of "cereal" (ie, sugar delivery devices) boxes
BingoBoingo: That's another problem. Once the easy protein got ate the US pivoted quickly to packaging the same couple grains as variety
mircea_popescu: oh and speaking of http://trilema.com/2019/counterfit-romania/#comment-129195 : michael jackson, "king of pop", "one-man rescue team for the music business", icon bla bla bla etcetera etcetera married... his doctor's nurse. just liek any other made-a-litte-money-now-what ustard out there.
mircea_popescu: the more i think about it the more it becomes obvious that a) there's no class in the us, as everyone MEETS THE ~SAME NUMBER OF WOMEN ; b) that number was ALWAYS extremely tiny, a few dozen and obviously c) it's dropped significantly past coupla decades and might continue dropping.
BingoBoingo: From what I understand according to the traditions of his tribe, he was chemically castrated to treat his acne
BingoBoingo: Died prepubescent in middle age
mircea_popescu: i would dare say that the ~average~ trial rate for ESL males was UNDER TWO at any point in the past century (trial rate is where the woman is naked on her knees begging and you're making her call whether to keep her or get rid of her).
mircea_popescu: and i furthermore suspect this went UNDER ONE with the "smart"phone
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, it's starting to come into focus in my mind, the problem is none of them perform. explain it away if you will, "this one was castrated, that one was busy, this other one bla bla bla", but in point of fact they're completely ineffectual.
mircea_popescu: i suspect this is deeply related to how quickly they go nuts. mj made a little money in the early 80s, was well detached from reality by '86 ? well duh.
BingoBoingo: Why would they perform. They've already been recorded? It's USica
mircea_popescu: if nothing else, because it's fucking fun.
mircea_popescu: what the fuck are you gonna do with your time, read twittewiki ?
mircea_popescu: but exceptions should perhaps also be noted. meet say tommy mottola -- untalented if ambitious average moron. he tried to break into money & fame with his absent talent ; when that failed he went into the administrative side, which matured into his running sony's music publishing for 15 years. at first he did derpy moves like promoting diana ross ; but then the next decade he ~invented~ mariah carey much like those ru pedo
mircea_popescu: s invented the tatu "lesbians" or that ro retired gangster invented "inna" (and yes he married her) ; then he woke up, smartened up, and simply sampled the goods : shakira and j-lo ever shared a bed while sucking his dick as yet-unknown stags.
mircea_popescu: then he retired into a marriage with thalia (this kinda-fat latino-interest "star").
mircea_popescu: (very strong manager in any case, "king of pop" nothing, music industry came back from the dead in the 80s rather because mottola than because michael)
mircea_popescu: even passes the sisters test ("dixie chicks", no claim to fame besides "vehicle for providing genetically-similar fuckholes to mottola", which is in fact enough)
mircea_popescu: hanbot, incidentally, his latina/inane ohio blondie (jessica simpson etc) sexual preferneces are ~why you're plagued with spanish-language dilutedpop all over the world now. scar tissue dicklets left behind are just you know, following the motions.

mircea_popescu: and in things alf will prolly love, https://www.hotnews.ro/stiri-arhiva-1246917-nicu-gheara-sechestrat-umilit-politistii-care-urmareau.htm
mircea_popescu: gotta put this shit on record before it "disappears", it's just too fucking lulzy stylistically : https://crji.org/?idT=88&idRec=5069 (source is this wanna-be respectable usg.blue character assassination project, made in the usual amerikanski fashion -- on the cheap by local orcs. very fashionable among the ro pantsuit crowd)
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in other femstate internet lulz : given that achille delmaet was principally famous for his (numerous, and some quite good) pictures of la goulue nude, why don't you... find some.
BingoBoingo: Meanwhile in the spamtrap http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/kAi47/?raw=true
mircea_popescu: keks wut
BingoBoingo: Apparently it's the latest wordpress spam floating around. Ransom demand with no specifics on how to differentiate ransom. Nothing seeded to address for credibility
