00:05:10 BingoBoingo: reeses: Protestor with the confinscated head bullet http://www.kmov.com/special-coverage-001/Officer-who-threatened-to-kill-protester-in-Ferguson-suspended-272073421.html together with http://www.tacticalsol.com/ar-22-series-uppers/ar-22-sb-x seem like interest wild conspiracy stuff.

00:05:11 assbot: Officer who threatened to kill protester in Ferguson suspended | KMOV.com St. Louis

00:06:14 BingoBoingo: ( .22LR is sometimes talked on in police circles as an acceptable "escalation" from rubber"

00:07:09 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo wlel they don't really do anything.

00:07:52 mircea_popescu: ?It was havoc at that time. He also got urine thrown on him, having to deal with that is obviously disgusting,? Jiminez said. ?However, when he?s trying to protect the public and asking people to back up, under no circumstances do I, or our department, condone his language.?

00:08:01 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo gotta admire the mindframe these grunts get into.

00:08:26 BingoBoingo: Oh, Imma working on a blog post

00:08:32 mircea_popescu: i bet you if you asked the whole complement of us police it'd be their honest estimation that in their absence the whole population would simply die overnight.

00:09:02 mircea_popescu: he was "protecting the public".

00:09:21 BingoBoingo: Sounds like the mindest on their blogs

00:09:57 BingoBoingo: .22lr can do interesting things, but also explains why headshot protester girl lived http://www.longrangehunting.com/forums/f33/polar-bear-kill-54763/

00:09:58 assbot: Polar Bear Kill - Long Range Hunting Online Magazine

00:10:02 mircea_popescu: would be kinda cool if the next few crowd shooters adopt this strategy as the maximal damge game theoretic solution.

00:10:08 mircea_popescu: "your honor, i was protecting the public"

00:10:10 mircea_popescu: and just go with that.

00:10:29 mircea_popescu: "just say what a policeman would say"

00:10:47 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo she got shot with a bb pellet ?

00:11:16 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Well no updates on the confinscated bullet

00:11:57 BingoBoingo: But if those assault rifles are mostly for looks and fitted with .22lr uppers could contribute to the explanation for why the cop got trigger happy

00:13:55 BingoBoingo: The small rimfire calibers though still kill plenty of people in the city (cheap effective enough if trying)

00:17:33 thestringpuller: !s bitreserve

00:17:33 assbot: 3 results for 'bitreserve' : http://search.bitcoin-assets.com/?q=bitreserve

00:18:03 thestringpuller: hmm

00:19:24 jurov: "bitreserve" ... maybe one day it will be popular booze

00:19:28 jurov: *name of

00:20:10 mircea_popescu: aged in mulberry ?

00:20:12 kdomanski_: BingoBoingo: they're actually popular for gang hits, because it's trivial to make an effective supressor for them

00:20:46 BingoBoingo: kdomanski_: In Missouri you can buy them without an NFA provided it was manufactered in Missouri

00:20:49 mircea_popescu: dude im missing out on the party. i thought gangland was mostly 45

00:21:05 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: It was in the 20's

00:21:28 mircea_popescu: no wait, in the 20s it was bb pellets. what do you think thompson fires ?

00:21:40 BingoBoingo: 45

00:21:44 kdomanski: thompson was 45 ACP

00:21:49 mod6: yup it is

00:22:25 mircea_popescu: fine fine.

00:22:27 mircea_popescu: i got nothing.

00:22:30 mod6: i shot a thompson once, was great :)

00:22:39 kdomanski: today they gold-plate .45 guns and carry them around for show

00:23:59 kdomanski: "yo nigga, look at my 1911 el Presidente Edition"

00:24:11 mod6: haha, i was just about to say, i want this one: https://www.lesbaer.com/PresGrade.html

00:24:12 assbot: Les Baer Custom Inc.

00:24:46 BingoBoingo: Right, but the large caliber stuff looks cool and costs money.

00:28:55 mod6: i shot one of those rugers with the integrated supressor once, it was hilarious, made no sound at all other than the action.

00:29:09 mod6: click-clack.

00:29:34 mod6: (.22 rimfire job)

00:32:15 *: mod6 ponders a hardware wishlist

00:32:58 mod6: hang on, lemme see if i can crowdfund my gun wishlist..

00:33:06 mod6: :D

00:34:48 mod6: i need an hk417

00:35:17 mod6: when the usg falls, i'll be buyin!

00:35:50 mod6: just think of all the toys that'll be avaliable. =D

00:41:19 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 10450 @ 0.00064075 = 6.6958 BTC [-] {2}

00:43:46 mircea_popescu: isn't the recoil pretty bad on that ?

00:44:25 mod6: the 417? na, its got a recoil sprint in the stock-tube.

00:44:51 mod6: shoots pretty much like the 16 or ar15/m16

00:45:00 mod6: or ar10

00:45:08 kdomanski: mod6: when the usg falls I hope it's caches of chemical weapons are secure

00:45:22 mod6: everything will be up for grabs.

00:46:13 mod6: or sold off by .mil guys trying to cash in

00:46:37 mod6: either way. same thing happened in the ussr iirc.

00:48:04 mod6: you'd think they would want to destroy those and the nukes. but they won't, because they can't see the forest through the trees.

00:48:12 mircea_popescu: kdomanski what's your definition of secure ?

00:49:58 kdomanski: mircea_popescu: claimable by someone who knows exactly what they are doing, but not by a bunch of hillbillies

00:50:27 mircea_popescu: that's probable.

00:50:51 mircea_popescu: hillbillies with chemical weapons are a self limiting problem anyway

00:51:15 kdomanski: if you don't live too close

00:52:26 BingoBoingo: I'm and the places in the US I consider traveling before my eventual exodus all seem to be upwind of those problems

00:52:51 BingoBoingo: If there is one thing Southern Illinois has over Southern Indiana its that.

00:53:33 *: BingoBoingo offer merely rumours and inuendo in supposing S IN might have such things

00:56:26 kdomanski: the Internet tells me Westboro Baptist Church is in neither of these states

00:56:53 mod6: its in KS

01:02:06 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not actually sold any bitcoin, still << naturally one buys an atomic dirigible -with- btc.

01:02:53 thestringpuller: mod6 and BingoBoingo MW'er 4lyfe

01:02:56 thestringpuller: dat snow

01:03:08 BingoBoingo: lol

01:03:12 asciilifeform: Hindenburg << would've probably died 'natural' death of most other dirigibles (wind. wonder where the u.s. ones went?) if not for the nitrocellulose envelope.

01:03:35 BingoBoingo: !s big prison

01:03:35 assbot: 0 results for 'big prison' : http://search.bitcoin-assets.com/?q=big+prison

01:04:03 asciilifeform: helium... welding tools and rocket fuel << in welding, processes like TIG, etc. in rocket? what was author smoking?

01:04:51 BingoBoingo: ;;ticker --market all

01:04:58 mod6: <+thestringpuller> dat snow << i basically piss ice cubes

01:05:26 asciilifeform: .22LR is sometimes talked on in police circles as an acceptable "escalation" from rubber << old tradition in usa. e.g. http://world.guns.ru/smg/usa/american-10-e.html

01:05:27 assbot: Modern Firearms - American-180

01:06:25 mod6: 290-round flat pan magazines << hahaha

01:06:42 asciilifeform: the .22 (for non-usians, the familiar 'olympic' caliber) rifle is also explained by cost: roughly 1/2 - 1/3 of a 'proper' m16. low pressure round, can use garbage metals.

01:06:49 asciilifeform: popular 'girls' rifle

01:08:27 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> the .22 (for non-usians, the familiar 'olympic' caliber) rifle is also explained by cost: roughly 1/2 - 1/3 of a 'proper' m16. low pressure round, can use garbage metals. << In police department purchasing general practice is buying actual M-16 type and them getting .22LR uppers to go with them

01:08:59 asciilifeform: if i recall, these are a plug-in part (no machining required)

01:09:00 BingoBoingo: More total purchases = Greater Bezzel

01:09:09 BingoBoingo: Completely plug in

01:09:26 asciilifeform: caliber being same.

01:10:11 mod6: yeah, you got nothin over 100m with that though. fine for qcb, but how are you supposed to reach out and touch someone in the field?

01:10:40 asciilifeform: mod6: police snipers (like any other) traditionally use bolt-action rifles of the 19th c. variety

01:10:49 asciilifeform: so the above isn't really about them

01:11:14 asciilifeform: rather, 'crowd control' mitrailleuses.

01:11:21 mod6: well, im saying, in case you left your bolt action remmington at home...

01:11:24 asciilifeform: as in 'pour la canaille la mitraille.'

01:11:32 BingoBoingo: Nothing to do with caliber, in the AR/M-16 style rifle the entire upper switches out with the removal of pins and replacement of bolt carrier springs. As long as the new caliber round is no longer than 45mm it works.

01:12:00 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i vaguely recall these were advertised as using the old barrel

01:13:18 mod6: <+asciilifeform> as in 'pour la canaille la mitraille.' << haha!

01:13:53 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: But the chamber in the standard 5.56x45mm barrel is wider to accomodate all that case. Unless the very cheap want a sleeve to solve that dimensional disparity at risk to limb...

01:15:45 asciilifeform: .22 seems to be a caliber wildly popular in usa - likely, solely on account of cost. a few cents each.

01:16:07 mod6: yea, cheap & easy to shoot.

01:16:24 asciilifeform: folks who spend a good deal of time at target practice complain about the fouling (no jacket.)

01:16:45 mod6: bah, just gotta scrub harder ;)

01:17:12 BingoBoingo: You can get copper plated, but yeah. Fouling is an issue. Thankfully the solution instills good habits

01:18:15 *: asciilifeform was informed re: the ubiquitous photos of gurlz posing with 'fancy m16' - typically it is the .22 cheapo variety.

01:19:08 BingoBoingo: Oh there are cheapos in the actual caliber

01:19:29 BingoBoingo: Pricing resource http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/

01:19:30 assbot: Home Page

01:19:39 asciilifeform: cheapo as in 'reddit' budget

01:19:52 BingoBoingo: What was that word for "the big jail"

01:19:52 mod6: includes a roll of ducktape

01:20:17 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: большая зона ?

01:20:27 BingoBoingo: Yes, thank you.

01:21:03 mod6: b-a has some decent weapons discussions.

01:21:27 *: asciilifeform is armchair general, if ever contributed to decent military discussion - purely by accident.

01:21:51 mod6: :]

01:24:14 BingoBoingo: I find reading about these things interesting because of the engineering and implementation issues raised. Like last night's electrolytic machining discussion.

01:25:09 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i find it interesting that nothing principally new happened in small arms for almost a century. (curios like 'gyrojet' excepted)

01:25:58 asciilifeform: departures from tradition - e.g. 'caseless shell' - were suggested, but no one bothered to reduce to practice afaik

01:26:56 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well, a lot happened in terms of "market trials" on subjects such as "Full" v "intermediate" power rounds and ideal caliber at any power

01:26:57 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform similarly no improvement in vinyl discs.

01:27:04 asciilifeform: lol

01:27:06 mircea_popescu: small arms are a dead trope as it were.

01:27:56 asciilifeform: small arms are a dead trope >> i recall a thread re: armour and the obsolescence of small arms

01:28:18 asciilifeform: but one nitpick - the 'self-aiming rifle' (one variant recently exhibited) could be an interesting gotcha

01:28:21 penguirker: New blog post: http://fraudsters.com/2014/sometimes-i-miss-romania/

01:28:24 mircea_popescu: sure.

01:28:38 asciilifeform: enemy might be covered in magical armour, but he still has, presumably, a visor

01:28:39 mircea_popescu: it's just... you know that no modern war will be won by small arms fire. like if the uys and china went at each other

01:28:49 mircea_popescu: it won'tr come down to who has many people that can and will fire a rifle.

01:29:02 asciilifeform: there's the 'city meatgrinder' style of warfare

01:29:09 mircea_popescu: this is like saying "the performance people moved away from vinly". it's dead.

01:30:12 asciilifeform: collapse of mega-empires and even pre-collapse deterioration of industrial base tends to favour a return to classical arms, however.

01:30:28 mircea_popescu: sure. and vinyl discs.

01:30:39 asciilifeform: wax phonograph, hell.

01:30:44 mircea_popescu: ayup.

01:31:17 mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> enemy might be covered in magical armour, but he still has, presumably, a visor << this reminds me, you know the horny bear joke ?

01:31:23 asciilifeform: ?

01:31:44 mircea_popescu: mkay. so in th forest there lived this very horny, huge schlong bear. sort of like one eye pete of the beardom.

01:32:10 mircea_popescu: one day he got really spunky, and his three bear wives ran off in this peculiar manner of females whose cunt is sore.

01:32:25 mircea_popescu: and the bear took to the road to find something to stick his hard cock into, repeatedly.

01:32:41 mircea_popescu: all animals took to flight, earthworms hid in the ground as deep as they could go.

01:32:53 mircea_popescu: just the poor hedgehog, with his tiny feet couldn't really keep up

01:33:01 mircea_popescu: so eventualy gave up, curled in a ball and hoped for the best.

01:33:27 mircea_popescu: bear of course finds it, and spining it all around like a hot potato on his paws mutters with great urgency

01:33:34 mircea_popescu: "where is your hole where is your hole"

01:33:49 mircea_popescu: eventually the hedgehog loses it and peeps "i have no hole, let me be!"

01:33:58 mircea_popescu: AHA! YOU SPOKE! THROUGH WHERE DID YOU SPEAK!

01:34:01 mod6: haha

01:34:05 asciilifeform: lol

01:36:43 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: That was posted at the exact right time to get linked in blog post I'll finish tonight or maybe in the morning.

01:39:32 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: re: electrochemical machining: if you do the obvious thing and run it backwards, you can deposit metal. but you'll have to temper the finished product.

01:39:33 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo isn't the +iq effect of ba impressive.

01:40:26 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I've actually done that before, ghetto electro plating to build thickness

01:40:51 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: It is indeed, especially considering all of the stuff I planned on addressing and culled

01:41:00 asciilifeform: a traditional joke on a n00b in a machine shop, i'm told, is to send him off for a 'putting-on tool' when he cuts his first undersized piece.

01:41:15 asciilifeform: chroming has been pressed into service as 'putting on tool' in some places.

01:41:41 asciilifeform: but this here is a different idea - actually build the entire thing via moving nozzle (a la plastic printer.)

01:42:49 BingoBoingo: In the boy scouts, people at camp their first year were sent to the quartermaster to retrieve the illustious "left handed smoke shifter"

01:43:04 asciilifeform: every profession, i suspect, has its 'any key.'

01:46:56 BingoBoingo: Well, some professions instead of hazing the n00bs haze the olds. See "retail pharmacy"

01:52:31 mircea_popescu: It is said, if you try, you can bugger the fly, or the swallow as it skims so skilfully by

01:52:33 mircea_popescu: ok that's poetry.

02:45:55 asciilifeform: once plug is pulled.

02:46:10 BingoBoingo: I dunno, I imagine some of the refrigerators might handle better than the mains box when disconnected

02:50:12 asciilifeform: might handle better than the mains box >> to the extent that the fridges largely consist of deliberately-crafted thorns in the side of the old sovblok, bad bet.

02:50:50 *: BingoBoingo still has blown glass fuses

02:50:59 *: asciilifeform did, two flats ago

02:51:48 BingoBoingo: I like how they fail beautifully, before you realize you have to traverse the county in a disorderly manner to replace them

02:53:33 asciilifeform: at the time, mine were at the top of a stairwell to nowhere (wall) - in the cellar (which the owner usually kept locked, to keep tenants from switching on the heat.)

02:54:12 *: asciilifeform still remembers the inscription on the fuse case - '1932' - in chemical pen.

02:54:36 *: BingoBoingo has never had a rental with locks worth more than a soda

02:56:36 asciilifeform: usa proper is arguably the ultimate 'fridge'

02:57:28 asciilifeform: even in the past, did not hold the frost very well (who burned, e.g., detroit, and why...)

02:57:51 BingoBoingo: Ah, that freezer burn

02:59:11 asciilifeform: and unlike, say, yugoslavia or ussr, there are no conveniently-drawn ethno-geographic bantustans for it to cleanly collapse to.

03:00:27 BingoBoingo: Well, my pet theory is that much of the continued racial separation in the US is related to treating race as an inventory management problem

03:01:57 *: asciilifeform wonders if the ferguson uprising folks like the logical conclusion of their work - bantustan behind concertina wire

03:03:15 BingoBoingo: Well, the St Louis County PD and by extentsion the Ferguson PD work mostly for their pay which comes from West County

03:03:55 BingoBoingo: And West County wants to know, what if these people follow their oppressors wallets

03:05:56 BingoBoingo: The much promoted "outside agitators" still largely hail from St Louis County.

03:05:57 asciilifeform: the 'opressors', as i understand, feed/house the 'oppressed'

03:06:11 asciilifeform: which is the mind-boggling part

03:07:11 BingoBoingo: Nominally, but I'm not really sure feed/house is covered in the actual budget.

03:07:41 BingoBoingo: Unlike LRAD

03:08:11 asciilifeform: people who insist on being shot by police of own, vs. opposite, color, end up in bantustans.

03:08:11 BingoBoingo: The great bezzel problem is no one can be sure if anything was actually paid for

03:09:44 asciilifeform: along side the bezzlatron, there exists the system whereby actual food is delivered, water, fuel, mains current, etc. is piped.

03:10:09 BingoBoingo: I actually think the endgame a portion in Ferguson seeks is a police department like East St Louis's which see falling crime in spite of near complete inactio

03:10:24 asciilifeform: inhabitants of a newly-minted bantustan are usually invited to handle these matters on their own.

03:11:32 BingoBoingo: Well, the Illinois State police recently started policing East St Louis so there is prolly a point to that

03:13:50 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: try another hypothesis re: rationale for ferguson. engineered creation of 'open sores' for military action on the cheap. as described in http://cluborlov.blogspot.com/2013/04/the-rationale-behind-boston-psy-ops.html

03:13:51 assbot: ClubOrlov: The Rationale behind the Boston Psy-ops

03:14:32 BingoBoingo: Bantustans aren't an unfamiliar creation in the region as many "coal city"'s existed which were named not for their coal mining.

03:14:46 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I've been thinking that point

03:15:53 BingoBoingo: Today though was too soon for me to wave the Orlov was right flag. Last night was "mostly peaceful"

03:16:07 BingoBoingo: And I still have a bowl full of dates to snack upon

03:16:40 asciilifeform: general principle - if usa cannot maintain full employment for career trigger-pullers - collapsatron revvs up in record time.

03:16:50 nubbins`: america is a complicated place

03:17:03 asciilifeform: how to maintain full employment on the cheap? how about jacqueries.

03:17:19 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Did you see the guy I assigned the "Big Jail" link to?

03:18:00 asciilifeform: policeman?

03:18:26 ben_vulpes: <BingoBoingo> Well, my pet theory is that much of the continued racial separation in the US is related to treating race as an inventory management problem << out in the burbs recently, noticed while walking by a softball game while emptying the dogs tanks how the white folks sat on the left side of the field and the black folks on the other. this being in one of the few neighborhoods with actual black folks in portland, the ration was

03:18:26 ben_vulpes: ~7:1

03:18:55 BingoBoingo: Yes, State Trooper in Illinois. Many accidents, many incidents, finally shipped to wander the big jail for killing two cute white girls in a traffic accident

03:22:42 BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: You can't believe what an asset not reflexively being afraid of black people is in this region.

03:23:52 ben_vulpes: i'm sorely out of practice since leaving new york.

03:24:30 asciilifeform: most russians in chechnya, pre-collapse, weren't instinctively afraid of their neighbours either.

03:24:40 asciilifeform: these folks are now: dead.

03:25:41 asciilifeform: ethnic war works quite like ordinary war, except that uniform is glued on.

03:25:55 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Imma trying to polish my spanish for a reason...

03:26:33 nubbins`: im trying to spanish my polish

03:34:44 nubbins`: you don't even need knots :0

03:36:15 BingoBoingo: nubbins`: Problem with a hammock isn't setting it up, but waking up

03:36:34 nubbins`: no advice for you there 8)

03:37:16 BingoBoingo: In hung over hypnagogic terror might as well be a trap to the lizard brain, and I am not letting the spiders win

03:37:44 nubbins`: first time pascale ever slept in a hammock, i suggested we leave the tarps off so we could see the stars

03:38:22 nubbins`: we get settled in, she clicks on headlamp to get oriented, illuminates huge spider dive-bombing directly towards her face

03:38:55 nubbins`: then we put the tarps back on ;D

03:39:11 BingoBoingo: Times 1-5 sleeping in a hammock I awoke safely on the ground, knife in hand

06:03:19 ben_vulpes: *yawn*

06:04:23 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes how does it werk ?

06:05:14 ben_vulpes: when a request comes in to van-ads.com/venues/drinkingrecord/* i log the time to the db

06:05:36 ben_vulpes: nominally this db is designed for this sort of webby logging stuff.

06:05:37 mircea_popescu: so then adblocking doesn't rly do much, unless it kills iframes i guess

06:06:32 ben_vulpes: if it blocks the request, i never know. if the request goes through but the user's never shown the content, that'll log.

06:07:09 ben_vulpes: i'm leaning towards moving the venues list to the front page, and making a faq page

06:08:19 ben_vulpes: anyways, now we get to see who's actually serving content.
