00:01:24 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> basically if you drink more than a coupla liters in six hours (saturated) you're done. << Seems like a safe way to thin out some hamplanets, while preserving people who aren't quite HCFS addicts

00:05:38 punkman: drinking is not breathing it though

00:06:08 asciilifeform: let's call it... einsatzkola.

00:07:44 punkman: I do wonder what heliumkola burps sound like

00:07:48 asciilifeform: 'Self-help duo Lynne Rosen and John Littig, known for their monthly radio show "The Pursuit of Happiness," were found dead in their Park Slope apartment, suffocated with plastic bags and helium. Each left behind a note, the Daily News reports, but their bodies were not discovered for up to a week. The soft-spoken couple owned a life-coaching business called Why Not Now and preached a mission "designed to help foster and encour

00:07:48 asciilifeform: age your inner strengths, identify hidden and untapped resources, and put you confidently on the path to designing the life you've always wanted to live." Their websites are littered with quotes like "The secret to getting ahead is getting started"​ and "It's always too early to quit."'

00:07:50 asciilifeform: ^ win

00:08:07 asciilifeform: Why Not Now!

00:08:16 mod6: haha

00:09:11 mod6: s/The Pursuit of Happiness/The Pursuit of a Bag Over Your Head/

00:09:31 mircea_popescu: punkman this is true but in the particular case of co - it is very permeating.\

00:09:38 mircea_popescu: your gut will uptake most of it.

00:10:53 mircea_popescu: they look kinda like "that mainstream ugly bitch and that mainstream insecure hipster make a porno" cast.

00:11:51 mircea_popescu: Zack & Miri Make a Porno

00:14:25 asciilifeform: funnily enough, i just answered phone from an old phriend who needed phase diagram of $redacted. apparently libraries now lack basic reference dead tree, and the net - worthless

00:14:28 asciilifeform: for something so basic.

00:14:53 asciilifeform: go and find a heat of enthalpy !

00:16:20 asciilifeform: and speaking of the helium people, it is - think about it - a pretty high-tech suicide weapon

00:16:28 mircea_popescu: aha.

00:16:39 asciilifeform: (need hoses, pressure regulators, at least. not a spur-of-the-moment thing, like eating your nagant)

00:16:49 mircea_popescu: tho really, nox much better to asphyxiate with.

00:16:56 asciilifeform: laugh to death.

00:16:59 mircea_popescu: heck, people mostly do it by mistake

00:17:08 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, by then it's laugh AT death.

00:17:08 asciilifeform: like kary mullis (discoverer of pcr!) almost did

00:17:23 asciilifeform: (assistant found him with lips frozen solid. he was getting it straight from the tank!)

00:17:46 mircea_popescu: heh

00:17:51 asciilifeform: anyway imho the chick is hot

00:18:07 asciilifeform: more or less illustrative of the opposite of what i mean when i say that the chix in mircea_popescu's photos 'have no faces'

00:19:03 mircea_popescu: you only think this because she's 45

00:19:14 asciilifeform: http://www.lynnerosen.com << what's the story here? you have to be alive now or they pull your box from the rack ?

00:19:15 assbot: lynnerosen.com - Registered at Namecheap.com ... ( http://bit.ly/1jQSyFt )

00:19:16 mircea_popescu: back when she was of sexing age you'd have thought her faceless too

00:19:19 asciilifeform: (or did they let it lapse)

00:19:30 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: possibly. all i have is this data point.

00:19:57 mircea_popescu: nltawwt

00:20:25 mircea_popescu: but all things consider, i'd rather the adult woman carry the lines i give her.

00:20:36 asciilifeform: paging pygmalion...

00:21:46 mircea_popescu: aha

00:22:04 mircea_popescu: 'fraid this is more a case of narcissus, but anyway.

00:22:17 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=19-10-2015#1303054 << paging your kindergarten chemistry teacher !

00:22:17 assbot: Logged on 19-10-2015 23:41:21; BingoBoingo: Maybe put Nitrous Oxide in the fizzy drinks, sure makes most people a bit giggly, but worth it for the 1-0.3% of the population that becomes rage monsters on it. Much lulz potential there.

00:22:25 asciilifeform: no wants to dissolve in nonpolars !

00:23:06 asciilifeform: e.g. lipid

00:23:31 mircea_popescu: so make the cola oil rather than water based.

00:23:34 asciilifeform: and not no either

00:23:35 asciilifeform: but n2o

00:23:38 asciilifeform: dafuq

00:23:52 asciilifeform: and so you want something like cream

00:24:08 asciilifeform: (which is where you will typically find n2o in the kitchen shop !)

00:24:14 asciilifeform: see old thread re: same.

00:24:36 asciilifeform: (NO you will find in the gasenwagen.)

00:24:46 asciilifeform: right next to CO.

00:36:17 BingoBoingo: Auto shop though tends to adulterate it to prevent "abuse"

01:07:21 mircea_popescu: lmao. the end of the fufcking world, when the empire's TAIL starts using imperial HEAD tricks

01:07:42 mircea_popescu: "these words don't say what you thought they did, they say what we want them to say, eat it up Washington!"

01:12:33 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> not to mention that 'decriminalize' is an idiot newspeakism << A lot of this. Basically code for enforce with greater arbitratity and seize moar funds.

01:13:26 asciilifeform: it is merely the introduction of a new layer of chumps, 'lawful personal users' - who do not even need to physically exist to support new layers of 'moar studiez needed' mandarins, enforcer thugs, etc

01:15:01 asciilifeform: how 'lawful personal users' are to get their dope without contact with 'lawless impersonal' dope-dealing caste, remains undefined (because whole shebang is a joke)

You call a function expecting a simple result, but then libc runs off and opens a bunch of sockets to remote servers and chats them up.

04:02:41 asciilifeform: not entirely relatedly, there is apparently a broadway musical about alexander hamilton.

04:03:12 mircea_popescu: Shawn Corey Carter (born December 4, 1969),[2] known by his stage name Jay Z (formerly Jay-Z),[3][4][5] is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur. He is one of the most financially successful hip hop artists and entrepreneurs in America. In 2014, Forbes estimated Jay Z's net worth at nearly $520 million.

04:03:17 mircea_popescu: awww. that's not so much, is it ?

04:03:28 mircea_popescu: He is one of the world's best-selling artists of all time, having sold more than 100 million records, while receiving 21 Grammy Awards for his musical work, and numerous additional nominations.

04:21:14 mircea_popescu: no see, im starting to understand a lot of things, or moreover : the tlp wash has put pieces in my head into a sense.

04:21:22 mircea_popescu: so : it's not narcissism that's the problem, not per se.

04:21:29 mircea_popescu: it goes deeper : coherence is the problem.

04:21:52 asciilifeform: 'consistency is the hobgoblin of the small mind' thing ?

04:21:59 mircea_popescu: yes, deeply coherent people APPEAR to be narcissists, and then it's easy to mistake THAT as driving the whole show. but it is not. narcissism is merely a defense mechanism.

04:22:07 mircea_popescu: keeping the over-coherent thing from explosion.

04:22:28 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform even deeper than that. the guy is so smooth, so flat, there is no possibility for a woman to get caught in anything.

04:23:00 mircea_popescu: it's not subjective (hobgoblin small mind etc), it is outright objective. he's so smooth you can drop him in the ocean and pick him up dry.

04:23:42 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> so how do we know the smooth << When one spends too much time in MS .NET they become it

04:24:14 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform this is a legitimate if complex question. i'll approach it from very, very far away.

04:24:34 mircea_popescu: why does the classical hero have to be flawed ? why not superman-perfect ?

04:24:41 mircea_popescu: to explain the love interest, that's why.

04:25:14 mircea_popescu: it never, to my knowledge, EVER worked on the silver screen as such. but the idea, even if never passibly implemented, still is valid

04:25:20 mircea_popescu: a sort of narrative bitcoin if you will.

04:25:45 mircea_popescu: so, why does t williams' pollitt junior drink ?

04:25:48 mircea_popescu: he could as well not drink.

04:25:55 mircea_popescu: ah, but you see, he drinks to forget. forget what ?

04:25:58 mircea_popescu: his father was gay too.

04:26:03 mircea_popescu: but the woman loves him. why ?

04:26:52 mircea_popescu: ah, that crazed fag hag liz taylor. sure. nevertheless, the story works BECAUSE the kid's not coherent.

04:27:38 asciilifeform: fanfic aficionados have a term, 'mary sue', for character who appears flawless and inspires loathing thereby

04:28:22 mircea_popescu: priscilla lane snubs eddie bartlett in the roaring twenties, and this is perceived as a visceral crime by the audience. why ?

04:28:47 mircea_popescu: why ? because the insipid lawyer is smooth ; cagney is clearly the one she was meant for. and we have no difficulty understanding panama smith's fixation.

04:28:52 asciilifeform: but how is the fungus man 'smooth' ? as far as i can see, he is one gigantic wrinkle, like a von koch snowflake

04:28:55 mircea_popescu: of course she'll die with him, she's caught.

04:29:25 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform explain to me the topology of the wrinkle in 1-dimensional space with a quantified rule =1.

04:29:37 asciilifeform: 1?!

04:29:40 mircea_popescu: yes.

04:30:10 mircea_popescu: (is this how you say it in english ? "function that measures distance", the geometric equivalent of the sorting function, rule)\

04:30:45 mircea_popescu: it should be, after all there's ruler

04:31:09 asciilifeform: metric

04:32:49 mircea_popescu: see, let's go on a tangent.

04:33:08 mircea_popescu: tlp observes "what the fuck is with the kids today, they all wanna be black ?" "they don't wanna be black, thgey wanna be masculine".

04:33:13 mircea_popescu: this is correct, exactly.

04:33:24 mircea_popescu: why is black = masculine ? why, because black needn't wrinkle.

04:40:00 mircea_popescu: the churchly doctrine has always been that absent the possibility of sin, and the wilful rejection of sin, salvation is impossible.

04:40:35 mircea_popescu: the REASON they said this, and stuck to it, is the correct observation that absent a very certainl possibility you'll fucking kill her, from which you wilfully abstain, the woman's not even slightly interested.

04:40:58 mircea_popescu: (chiefly because you'll probably not give her children, which has its own knot of evolutionary logic behind it)

04:41:32 mircea_popescu: and now : how the fuck is superman going to provide the manifest possibility he's killing the woman ?

06:00:54 BingoBoingo: The concise explanation of why parents who aren't poor and even some who are don't let their kids play 'Murican football

06:04:35 BingoBoingo: Because why put your kids in the position to suffer likely murder to people doping with shit that works when... you can tell them no for at least a few years.

06:07:44 BingoBoingo: The point people are chemically engineering themselves routinely to be better at the sport in school is the point where the sport had went beyond what makes sense as a school sport.

06:09:39 mircea_popescu: from what i could gather, the sort of kid that plays football comes from the same pool of kids that "sing rap" or get shot in turf wars.

06:09:51 mircea_popescu: if you're gonna go, might as well go whatever way it happens

06:10:32 BingoBoingo: Of course.

06:11:17 BingoBoingo: It is the exact demographic now. The demographic that used to produce boxers like Ali now produces 300-400 pound sprinters

06:13:04 BingoBoingo: Just now the demographic's parents are either Denzel Washington in Training Day or Madea sitting on the school board

06:14:54 BingoBoingo: The thing is he has to consider getting on gear because the sport he chose inevitably means he will be smashing heads with people who did

06:15:56 BingoBoingo: "If you can you must"

06:16:03 ben_vulpes: > sings rap

06:17:00 BingoBoingo: I know alf has an aversion to the American Football talk, but the sad thing is that was likely one of the saner people getting into the game

06:17:17 mircea_popescu: can you ?

06:17:52 mircea_popescu: and what is it, "recites" ? he does with the mouth.

06:18:35 BingoBoingo: I just gotta say Jay-Z's girl Beyonce better consider a calorie deficit before she ends up like Kim Karsashian who bloated up.

06:19:16 mircea_popescu: there's no saving the 30yo black woman. she'll balloon, tis the genes.

06:20:10 BingoBoingo: She can keep it in her ass. Older black Women manage that. That is good. Kim though was not black and just went full FUPA.

06:21:42 mircea_popescu: diff story there.

06:21:46 BingoBoingo: Yeah

06:23:28 mircea_popescu: This is how famous people die: they take stimulants to party all night, and sleep very little. Finally, on day 3 they're too wired to fall asleep naturally, so they take a few extra sedatives (because they feel so wired.) However, the full dose of the pills doesn't happen until after they fall asleep; the sedation is worsened even further by stimulant withdrawal; and, of course, the natural exhaustion that comes with

06:23:28 mircea_popescu: partying for three days and not sleeping.

06:23:29 BingoBoingo: Just if Jay-Z was doing really good he'd be able to cycle them out

06:23:35 mircea_popescu: aaaand again ballas is exactly correct

06:23:39 mircea_popescu: that's precisely how famous people die.

06:24:15 BingoBoingo: Like Elvis

06:24:24 mircea_popescu: i'd guess about half of them.

06:24:45 BingoBoingo: Though hints in his papers suggest he aspirated on the vomit too

06:28:42 mircea_popescu: "Mass murder is the violent expression of being a pussy. The people killed are almost never the people who actually hurt you-- they are the nameless collateral damage of your fear of confrontation. Every person who Sodini felt hurt him is still alive. Every person he shot was nothing but polite to him, if they had any contact at all. This is almost universally true about mass murderers. In other words, the people w

06:28:43 mircea_popescu: ho you think hurt you most got punished the least."

06:28:58 mircea_popescu: word eh.

06:29:27 mircea_popescu: the problem with this safe, sanitized, society-first view of individual action is that it deliberately avoids the problem of class.

06:30:09 mircea_popescu: what if you mass murder accountants ? irs accountants ? black women ? people working at the southern poverty law center ? congressmen ? etc.

06:30:25 mircea_popescu: but let's not talk about that.

06:32:00 BingoBoingo: Can't talk about that. "Ideation" in psych lingo.

06:41:27 mircea_popescu: anyway. tlp's idea about how to report the stuff in the media to prevent its repeating is entirely correct (and also exactly what china does, which he doesn't notice - tho he notices correctly that it's what the dod forced everyone to do for the wtc bombings)

06:42:11 mircea_popescu: the probolem with THAT is that it only works for as long as the press is firmly attached to the public mind, but the more it works the more tenouous it makes that attachment. so... notrly.

17:37:18 mircea_popescu: i guess so

17:37:18 ascii_field: (or cigs)

17:38:05 mircea_popescu: notably, the 10k fuckholes aren't "more valuable" in either scenario. they ARE however LESS UTILIZED in the second.

17:38:13 mircea_popescu: so in the only sane paradigm, the latter is actually more impoverished.

17:38:27 mircea_popescu: nevertheless, in the "value is what people want" paradigm, the former is incredibly poor.

17:38:39 ascii_field: thing is, a situation like this is impossible without barbed wire & guards (in one form or another)

17:38:44 mircea_popescu: not so.

17:38:54 ascii_field: who prevents the utilization ?

17:40:28 mircea_popescu: you understand this ? it doesn't DO anything. it's there so the fucktards can BLAME IT for who they are.

17:40:38 mircea_popescu: like the people who "stayed in statal employment" cca 1992.

17:41:02 mircea_popescu: "best be safe". sure. "barbed wire" aha.

17:41:29 mircea_popescu: barbed wire, like "nuclear weapons" scl is a TOTEM.

17:41:38 mircea_popescu: infantry cuts through it faster than infantry can deploy it, think about that.

17:42:19 ascii_field: this works because infantry is a machine (yes) not man. i.e. soldier hasn't the choice of 'i don't feel like it'

17:42:33 mircea_popescu: more importantly - soldier doesn't havfe the choice of "i'm too good for this"

17:42:38 ascii_field: so he is really still boxed in by 'barbed wire' - just not the wire you see in front of him

17:42:52 mircea_popescu: the notion of freedom you carry most closely approximates death.

17:42:55 ascii_field: soldier is in no sense the example of 'man impervious to wire'

17:43:02 ascii_field: if he were, he would shoot own officer & go pirating.

17:43:10 mircea_popescu: but pirating is no different.

17:43:27 thestringpuller: I was under the impression a soldier is nothing more than a political tool.

17:43:40 thestringpuller: That is, a soldier's only purpose is to "complete the mission".

17:45:03 mircea_popescu: anyway, it is strictly possible soldier actually believes in the war and his side. there's nothing wrong with this.

17:46:00 ascii_field: obligatory...

17:46:01 ascii_field: 'One of the essential experiences of war is never being able to escape from disgusting smells of human origin. Latrines are an overworked subject in war literature, and I would not mention them if it were not that the latrine in our barracks did its necessary bit towards puncturing my own illusions about the Spanish civil war. The Latin type of latrine, at which you have to squat, is bad enough at its best, but these were

17:46:01 ascii_field: made of some kind of polished stone so slippery that it was all you could do to keep on your feet. In addition they were always blocked. Now I have plenty of other disgusting things in my memory, but I believe it was these latrines that first brought home to me the thought, so often to recur: ‘Here we are, soldiers of a revolutionary army, defending Democracy against Fascism, fighting a war which is about something, an

17:46:03 ascii_field: d the detail of our lives is just as sordid and degrading as it could be in prison, let alone in a bourgeois army.’ Many other things reinforced this impression later; for instance, the boredom and animal hunger of trench life, the squalid intrigues over scraps of food, the mean, nagging quarrels which people exhausted by lack of sleep indulge in.'

17:46:16 ascii_field: (mr o)

17:46:27 mircea_popescu: mr o never was a soldier,\

17:49:16 mircea_popescu: sense of humor. aka faux hipster irony. in other words, a facility with the faux.

17:49:25 ascii_field: ^ now this never made any sense to me

17:49:45 ascii_field: i suspect there is a 'cargo cult' aspect - they can see other people laugh, and say 'i could also laugh!'

17:49:56 mircea_popescu: it is generally hoped that in this they also BECOME

17:50:27 mircea_popescu: yes.

17:50:48 ascii_field: this is why we disagree on 'them fools think they're too good'

17:51:02 ascii_field: mr o did not think he were 'too good.' he tried to become a limonov. and failed.

17:51:29 ascii_field: ergo honesty is better - if you are constitutionally unsuited to being limonov, be someone else

17:51:31 mircea_popescu: the irony here, true, unadorned irony of the greek sort, is that the champion of the faux, out of a misguided desire for authenticity metastasized out of his own problems with the faux and handles thereof, stuck to the infantile version instead of individuating into the adult.

17:52:09 mircea_popescu: the big secret being that juveniles have no soul. they're not individuals, they're the zerg creep.

17:52:27 mircea_popescu: they individuate out of this, maybe, into adulthood. ironically, adults are apparently a lot more similar than the adolsecents are.

17:52:36 ascii_field: (although limonov is prolly not the metric here, as he was almost entirely the same animal as orwell - complete with 'ritual' visit to a war, even got to fire a rifle, yes! cummed in his pants)

17:52:42 mircea_popescu: this could, apparently, be misinterpreted as a reduction of individuality. but it'd take a teen to make the mistake.

17:53:32 ascii_field: how is this a mistake?

17:53:58 ascii_field: when ben franklin wrote that 'most people die at 25 but aren't buried till 75' he was describing a very real thing.

17:57:27 ascii_field: how ?

17:57:31 mircea_popescu: in point of fact, individuality is not a matter of appearance.

17:57:31 ascii_field: there are not so many cigars

17:57:41 mircea_popescu: because to the adolescent it seems like the same thing.

17:58:22 ascii_field: everyone pushes same buttons, but for different reasons...

17:58:30 ascii_field: this seems blindingly obvious

17:58:40 mircea_popescu: quite. and how much of one's passion with rare keyboards is driven by a fear of this issue ?

17:58:51 ascii_field: personally - zero

17:59:01 mircea_popescu: but you see how this'd work.

17:59:06 ascii_field: to the point that just about everyone i know in meatspace bought what i had...

17:59:20 ascii_field: and you'd say i am supposed to react to that ..?

17:59:21 mircea_popescu: so imo, franklin was speaking of a different thing.

17:59:49 mircea_popescu: <ascii_field> how is this a mistake? << see there. i don't say such.

18:00:14 ascii_field: (i am told there is actually a subculture of 'hipster keyboards' but they are not collecting 1980s workhorses but actual oddity art objects, of mahogany, ...)

18:00:31 mircea_popescu: what franklin spoke of was a different time. a time when adulthood was unavoidable, and as such lazy people simply succumbed to the hollow form. "hey, if no kid can tell me from any other adult, why bother."

18:00:55 mircea_popescu: "i just work here."

18:00:59 ascii_field: and now it is avoidable ?

18:01:42 ascii_field: but for plebe?

18:02:17 ascii_field: he 'grows up', which means he no longer wakes up and thinks 'what shall i do to amuse myself' but 'off to the salt mine' and when comes home 'what do i eat and have i enough spare change?' and then tired, and then again a day of living death

18:02:51 ascii_field: or is there something under the stripes

18:03:06 mircea_popescu: adolescence is not childhood. the child wakes up with what SEEMS "what shall i do to amuse himself", except to him it';s a dealdy grind.

18:03:20 mircea_popescu: but the adolescent wakes up with "i wonder what insane demands will my chosen identity put on me THIS TIME"

18:03:30 ascii_field: i never did or saw either

18:03:32 mircea_popescu: there's good reason adolescents hate waking up

18:04:27 mircea_popescu: obviously everyone at auschwitz thought it temporary.

18:05:30 ascii_field: the folks who came to think that 'this is the real me now' threw themselves on the wire

18:05:43 mircea_popescu: ironically, auschwitz has a LOT more in common with the "boost self esteem" version of us schools than with actual education.

18:05:53 mircea_popescu: it was in fact exactly the same : an exercise in esteem engineering.

18:06:12 mircea_popescu: as a result, no amount of pain suffering or violence could have matured the individual. on the contrary - it drove infantilization.

18:07:01 mircea_popescu: meanwhile you don't even need much caning to get a willing slave into a sane head space.

18:07:17 mircea_popescu: caning. what's that even ? barely noticeable biologically.

You think you see something more real than she does, but you aren't supposed to see more deeply-- she is. You are supposed to be infuriated-- that's why she looks more deeply.

23:50:05 assbot: The Last Psychiatrist: Wolf Blitzer Is Not An Idiot ... ( http://bit.ly/1OH1jyV )

23:50:05 mircea_popescu: "What happened is that Wolf was in the middle of a story some people suspected was a hoax, but was still being reported as a "thank god he was hiding in the garage" drama. So he tried to protect the story. He tried to pretend he missed the comment so that everyone could go on with the story as it was being told.

23:50:06 mircea_popescu: If you agree with this, then you have to also face the fact that Wolf didn't consciously plan, "no matter what happens in this interview, I'm going to cover it up"-- it was a reflex, an instinct. Get a drink, think about this: a reporter's instinct wasn't to go for the truth, but to go with the scripted story.

23:50:06 mircea_popescu: You may think that I'm too much with the rum or too hard on Wolf-- "he seems like such a nice man" but it's not Wolf's fault. He's a cog in the Matrix. The next day Meredith Vieira interviews the family live on the Today show. While the father is denying to her it was a hoax, the boy suddenly says, "mom, I need a cup" and vomits. Vierra's response to this is nothing. Forget about the implications of the boy's vom

23:50:13 mircea_popescu: iting, she does not even acknowledge that he vomited. Is she heartless? No. She's flustered: her instinct is to preserve the show, like a stage actress, keep the scene going no matter what else happens."
