20:39:41 kakobrekla: no more kicking of 'Spot'!
20:39:56 asciilifeform: not unless you can kick 'his' compensationdao out of his arse.
20:42:15 kakobrekla: and so the Fords of various industries will go 'oh well back to human labor'

20:42:49 kakobrekla: i doubt
20:43:39 kakobrekla: beatings are free or how does that go
20:45:26 asciilifeform: in shanghai, humans - economical. in eurocracy, mouthbreathing derps with 'rights' - not so.
20:45:46 kakobrekla: eh? go ask the greeks.
20:46:05 asciilifeform: greeks are attractive factory workers now?!
20:46:21 kakobrekla: who said anything about attractive lol
20:46:29 asciilifeform: +ev, i mean

20:47:15 asciilifeform: they pretend to work, get pretend-pay...
20:48:08 punkman: they work just fine, the derpy managers are more of a problem
20:48:33 kakobrekla: compared to the mps 'will pay 1 cent for artwork' the greek results are excellent
20:50:19 asciilifeform: punkman: cursory look at my desk reveals nothing stamped 'made in greece'
20:50:51 kakobrekla: hey, olives i had for dinner were from greece!
20:51:00 asciilifeform: mmm
20:51:08 kakobrekla: and blueberries were from portugal
20:51:11 asciilifeform: which is why i said 'desk' not 'fridge'
20:51:31 *: kakobrekla loves blueberries
20:51:39 *: asciilifeform also.
20:51:50 punkman: asciilifeform: so if the workers were better you'd expect to see monitor "made in greece"?
20:52:08 kakobrekla: for the monitor, they had to be 'cheaper' not 'better'
20:52:30 asciilifeform: punkman: i'd expect ~something~
20:52:55 asciilifeform: i even have had 'made in romania' items.
20:54:08 kakobrekla: you prolly dont have anything from slovenia, however that doesnt mean much
20:54:28 punkman: "In 2015, the Greek Merchant Navy controlled the world's largest merchant fleet in terms of tonnage with a total DWT of 334,649,089 tons and a fleet of 5,226 Greek owned vessels, according to Lloyd's Lis"
20:54:33 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: what's exported from slovenia ?
20:54:43 kakobrekla: potica?
