00:00:50 mircea_popescu: unrelatedly, i tried to re-read dostoyevsky for my sins.

00:01:06 mircea_popescu: oh-my-fucking-god is this guy boring&stupid.

00:01:19 *: asciilifeform had same reaction as a young man

00:01:24 mircea_popescu: that fucking letter to the bum from his IDIOTIC mother about how that slut of a sister of his lied to everyone and wouldn't fuck

00:01:29 mircea_popescu: jesus christ i threw it away.

00:01:41 mircea_popescu: how did this shit pass for literature again, it has all the drawbacks of cancerous womanhood.

00:02:05 asciilifeform: literature of decaying cultures is a matter for pro archaeologists

00:02:10 mircea_popescu: nothing but nagging and an insistence of posing the likes of which isn't yet encountered on instagram!

00:02:11 asciilifeform: who go in for that kind of thing.

00:02:35 mircea_popescu: i'm supposed to admire how dounia "Can endure" ? fuck her stupid head ?

00:02:37 mircea_popescu: jesus.

00:03:12 cazalla: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=25-09-2015#1285972 <<< any idea if he actually was an informant?

00:03:12 assbot: Logged on 25-09-2015 23:42:07; mircea_popescu: what, the bulger crime family never happened, right ?

00:03:13 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=25-09-2015#1285778 << if we're doing crackpot evil inventions, i much prefer the 'drm chair'

00:03:13 assbot: Logged on 25-09-2015 21:50:04; assbot: Logged on 25-09-2015 14:51:18; pete_dushenski: "Camera Restricta is a speculative design of a new kind of camera. It locates itself via GPS and searches online for photos that have been geotagged nearby. If the camera decides that too many photos have been taken at your location, it retracts the shutter and blocks the viewfinder. You can't take any more pictures here." << notbad for an 'artist' (philipp schm

00:03:39 mircea_popescu: cazalla prolly was, in the sense of "i'll tell you about the italians so you can tell your boss im an informant and then tell me when they wanna hit my org."

00:03:40 asciilifeform: http://www.creativeapplications.net/objects/drm-chair-chair-that-self-destructs-after-8-uses << not this one. although it, too

00:03:43 assbot: DRM Chair - Chair that self-destructs after 8 uses ... ( http://bit.ly/1Wo8vBa )

00:04:03 mircea_popescu: why 8 ?

00:04:19 mircea_popescu: and how come they're not working to make a woman that self-destructs after fucking.

00:04:26 mircea_popescu: prolly make violent rape go away.

00:04:36 asciilifeform: http://wearcam.org/seatsale << THIS one.

00:05:43 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1Wo8Ofi )

00:05:56 asciilifeform: incidentally all this was, afaik, ~before~ self-destructing printer cartridges and other mundane implementations of this crud became common

00:06:10 mircea_popescu: let me guess punkman, thats a graph of bitcoind

00:06:31 punkman: possibly

00:07:14 punkman: cute website there too

00:09:23 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 38350 @ 0.00074053 = 28.3993 BTC [+] {4}

00:09:49 asciilifeform: the 'enforced obsolescence' thing is sop even in something as boring as yard tools. not long ago, i bought an electric grass-cutter thing. works great, but battery holds a charge for perhaps 10 min! vendor used to sell the 36v battery pack for ~200 usd. extortionate, in there are 3 12v lead acid cells. which are 50mm wide, precisely, and no replacement sold anywhere in the world fits in the container! they, turns out, contract

00:09:49 asciilifeform: ed with chinese SPECIFICALLY to make this.

00:10:02 asciilifeform: perhaps BingoBoingo has encountered such items, in his work.

00:10:46 asciilifeform: i went today to a specialist who deals in rare batteries, and he just gave me a pitying look.

00:11:19 mircea_popescu: https://cinetext.wordpress.com/category/soviet-film/page/2/ << if anyone's truly bored, curious about the topic of cinema and doesn't read russian.

00:11:21 assbot: Soviet Film « Early & Silent Film ... ( http://bit.ly/1Wo9D7U )

00:11:29 mircea_popescu: guy's broadly inept but decently documented.

00:12:07 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform when i bought a grass cutter i bought one with plug. fuck me if im going to buy any battery anything.

00:12:37 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: cord is a bitch on this hilly terrain. tends to get run over.

00:13:00 asciilifeform: and the thing was cheap, lunch money. let go for pennies by the last fella who tried to get the battery.

00:13:03 mircea_popescu: i just cut in lines away from the house. cord was at no point past wherer i cut.

00:13:55 mircea_popescu: but i guess you'll have to hitch a car battery to it.

00:14:00 asciilifeform: 3 of them.

00:14:03 asciilifeform: 36v motor.

00:14:06 mircea_popescu: oh.

00:14:08 mircea_popescu: get a rack ?

00:14:15 asciilifeform: l0l

00:14:17 mircea_popescu: :D

00:14:49 asciilifeform: gotta appreciate the pure genius of the chumpatronics here

00:14:59 asciilifeform: a lead-acid cell is good for perhaps 10-20 'deep' cycles

00:15:03 mircea_popescu: i somehow doubt a 36 v motor is actually in there. what, this thing weighs 60 lbs ?

00:15:08 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it does.

00:15:12 mircea_popescu: best cut off the 36 to 12v transformer

00:15:12 mircea_popescu: oh

00:15:30 asciilifeform: it indeed has dc 36v windings.

00:15:35 mircea_popescu: nuts.

00:15:42 mircea_popescu: so it's more like a motorized woodchipper ?

00:15:49 asciilifeform: nearly.

00:16:10 asciilifeform: theoretically very spiffy for folks like me who despise this chore.

00:16:12 mircea_popescu: my thing was a very respectable 600W DC thing, never had a problem cutting right through thistle and whatnot.

00:16:27 asciilifeform: dc ?

00:16:34 mircea_popescu: ac i mean.

00:16:34 asciilifeform: i thought it was plugged into mains

00:16:36 asciilifeform: ah

00:16:46 mircea_popescu: anyway sharp blade counts ^2, motor power counts like ^.8 or something.

00:17:01 asciilifeform: aha, learned this experimentally.

00:17:10 mircea_popescu: cuz you didn't bother to think about it.

00:17:10 asciilifeform: the last owner fitted a very expensive and nice new blade

00:17:28 mircea_popescu: why the fuck do you think scythe grass cutters insist on skill an d sharp scythe, rather than bulging biceps.

00:17:46 mircea_popescu: how do you even call this in english,

00:17:58 mircea_popescu: haymen ?

00:18:12 mircea_popescu: "haymaker"

00:18:14 asciilifeform: aha

00:18:31 mircea_popescu: no nm, that';s more the tool. scytheman!

00:19:08 mircea_popescu: onbe of the foremost lost arts. there's an entire story to the job, including how to build waterproof hay piles.

00:20:22 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i guess unless you make your own order for 36v batteries that's not getting fixed, who the fuck wants to charge 3 items one by one etc

00:20:38 asciilifeform: nobody

00:20:47 asciilifeform: and guess what, even the charger was ~built in~ to the container

00:21:02 mircea_popescu: i suppose you could install one of those electric bike things

00:21:09 mircea_popescu: iirc was 36v like 30-50 Ah

00:21:23 asciilifeform: not a single one ever made and publicly sold, apparently, fits.

00:21:31 mircea_popescu: well that's for sure. but, plastic, right ?

00:22:16 asciilifeform: steel.

00:23:29 mircea_popescu: lmao!

00:23:36 asciilifeform: ikr?

00:23:41 mircea_popescu: if you're gonna make it heavier than a fuckable woman and steel and whatnot

00:23:48 mircea_popescu: why the fuck not put an actual engine in there ?

00:23:55 asciilifeform: fuck actual engine

00:23:57 asciilifeform: i had one of those

00:24:04 asciilifeform: the vibration stripped the skin off my hands every time.

00:24:04 mircea_popescu: exhaust ?

00:24:06 asciilifeform: even with gloves on.

00:24:07 mircea_popescu: oh

00:24:20 mircea_popescu: nobody forces you to make a shitty engine!

00:24:35 asciilifeform: here in zimbabwestan, that's all there is.

00:24:45 asciilifeform: http://imgur.com/a/QPjfr << uploaded for posterity.

00:24:46 assbot: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet ... ( http://bit.ly/1WoayoK )

00:25:47 mircea_popescu: and it charges at 1.5 ? how long does this take, whole night ?

00:26:01 asciilifeform: aha

00:26:42 *: mircea_popescu is suddenly very appreciative of all the problems he never had.

00:28:59 asciilifeform: grass is a plague.

00:29:10 asciilifeform: if it were my lands, i would have concrete poured.

00:29:20 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform << http://fraudsters.com/2011/marea-afacere-cu-tuns-iarba/#selection-49.0-53.287 i have history!

00:29:24 mircea_popescu: because the fucking blog!

00:29:32 asciilifeform: (or alternatively some form of vegetation that doesn't need trimming)

00:30:08 mircea_popescu: https://www.bosch-garden.com/gb/en/garden-tools/garden-tools/rotak-34-r-3165140746472-199956.jsp

00:30:15 mircea_popescu: and turns out i was wrong, it was 1.3kw

00:30:36 asciilifeform: spiffy!

00:30:55 asciilifeform: if i ever encounter one of these sold at a street corner for twentybux i will certainly buy it..

00:31:39 mircea_popescu: and i even have the exact moneyary counts. 450 lei for the item, =~ 150 bucks. 90 lei for two chord extensions (40m total), 30 bucls.

00:31:57 asciilifeform: astonishing

00:32:00 mircea_popescu: i have over you the advantage that hey, corporate purchases. tax writeoff.

00:32:02 asciilifeform: helps that you had 220v there

00:32:06 mircea_popescu: so i didn't ACTUALLY pay anything on them.

00:32:15 asciilifeform: neato

00:34:08 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah grass is great. grasshoppers!

00:35:25 *: asciilifeform is not certain he ever once saw a grasshopper in this part of the globe

00:35:49 asciilifeform: perhaps they were once there.

00:35:51 mircea_popescu: one of the best parts of cutting grass in like may/june was, after you cut it, the next day or w/e, you go for a stroll

00:36:02 mircea_popescu: and there's this cloud of little 2mm guys jumping from where yo ustep

00:36:04 mircea_popescu: kickass.

00:36:24 mircea_popescu: and i do mean cloud, 100s in the air at any time.

00:36:41 asciilifeform: here we sorta have the opposite - as you cut, you liberate mosquitoes and earth wasps (or what are they called?) and they go straight for your flesh.

00:37:00 mircea_popescu: i never saw this.

00:37:12 asciilifeform: perhaps only in the dc swamps.

00:37:24 mircea_popescu: i did have a wasp once. i... bought it a drink.

00:37:46 mircea_popescu: http://fraudsters.com/2011/viesparium/ << mugshots.

00:37:47 assbot: Viesparium on fraudsters - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( http://bit.ly/1Wobtpm )

00:38:26 asciilifeform: here we have many kinds of wasp

00:38:43 asciilifeform: they like to burrow into the (made of almost nothing, typically) 'siding' of houses and nest in the very walls.

00:38:48 asciilifeform: sometimes, a room or two in !

00:38:57 asciilifeform: put your ear to the wall, 'bzzzzss'

00:39:04 mircea_popescu: scary.

00:39:22 asciilifeform: i bet overseas folks here think i am describing a prison planet straight from robert sheckley or the like

00:39:24 *: mircea_popescu knows some women that are wasphobic

00:39:25 asciilifeform: but we actually have these.

00:40:12 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: these macro shots are glorious

00:40:16 asciilifeform: what optic was used ?

00:40:32 mircea_popescu: handheld potato.

00:40:40 asciilifeform: very good hand, then.

00:40:48 mircea_popescu: supposedly i coulda been a surgeon.

00:41:04 mircea_popescu: but it's more to do with the fact that i understand how the fucking focus thing works and just time it in my head.

00:41:36 mircea_popescu: (digital cam autofocus thing is NOT able to resolve the n/p problem of "correct focus". it just tries. and fails, predictably, after missing some optimums)

00:41:43 asciilifeform: the 'vulvarium' link is also interesting

00:41:46 punkman: manual focus is a must for macro shots

00:41:57 mircea_popescu: apparently it isn't :)

00:42:16 mircea_popescu: autofocus works just fine, just gotta be sane.

00:42:52 mircea_popescu: (sane = not expect it to succeed, understand how it tries.)

00:42:54 punkman: there is nothing for autofocus to target when the subject is very close to the lens

00:43:04 punkman: gotta lock it, and manual focus by moving around

00:43:18 mircea_popescu: i suppose if you count such procedures as manual then yes.

00:44:11 punkman: (for some kinds of autofocus at least, like the ones that shine an IR light)

00:48:57 asciilifeform: http://qntra.net/2015/09/eyewitness-people-walking-out-of-bitpay-office-in-tears/#comment-61115 << lol, ~the~ TaT? shakespeare, or another man by same name ?!

00:52:06 mircea_popescu: "Teh romanians entertain the mistaken view that one can't die of hunger. One can. Not only can, will. A certain count of Romanians (as large as necessary) will die of hunger, in the closer or more distant future, because otherwise the populace does not seem capable to comprehend that the only reason Trompi dropped them in the world is so they work. They're not here to enjoy themselves, they're not here to be happy, the

00:52:06 mircea_popescu: y're not here to state their oppinions, eat doritos or drink bear. They're here to work and only work, a lot, hard and for very little money. Until they fall over."

00:52:18 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i just read that, aha

00:52:28 asciilifeform: how many of hunger so far ?

00:52:33 mircea_popescu: cazalla this is romania. we have 100 lb women and tiny polen wasps here.

00:52:41 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not really enough.

00:53:04 mircea_popescu: and what the fuck is that scary shit.

00:53:22 mircea_popescu: monsanto should ge au wasps to build houses in new mexico.

00:53:47 asciilifeform: betcha this will be tried.

00:53:58 asciilifeform: it is almost certainly easier than getting homo redditicus to build a house !

00:54:14 mircea_popescu: o yeah. wasp is very disciplined.

00:54:50 asciilifeform: which is why 'They're here to work and only work, a lot, hard and for very little money. Until they fall over.' is hilariously optimistic. most of these people, i doubt could even be made useful at butugychag, where 'fall over' is a matter of 3 months or so

01:07:02 asciilifeform: they actually run (what remains of) the living tissue of the place.

01:07:51 *: mircea_popescu is skeptical. and will continue to be so, because time ticks behind him. in a decade i'll pretend that not only am i right now, but was right all along : no better stock in that place.

01:08:04 asciilifeform: l0l this sorta worked in su.

01:08:08 mircea_popescu: aha.

01:08:28 asciilifeform: but it is not entirely a useless observation because it explains why the 'lights stayed on as long as they did'

01:09:21 asciilifeform: now, when these people are gone - THEN yes, zimbabwe.

01:09:22 asciilifeform: full bore.

01:09:25 mircea_popescu: an exercise not unlike explaining why "the green stays left in the mandelbrot set for as long as it does"

01:10:19 mircea_popescu: you might find that most of the windows with lights in them are painted cardboard in the shape of a window with a light in it.

01:10:49 mircea_popescu: the us got a random guy from kenya to pretend like he's a law professor ; anhd some random derp from pakistan to pretend he's a district attorney.

01:11:01 mircea_popescu: who's fooled ? was rice a secretary of state ? was fiorina a ceo ?

01:11:07 mircea_popescu: no lights.

01:11:10 asciilifeform: laugh but this is not entirely fiction. i discovered recently that it is customary where i live for the city to continue to cut the grass in the yards of empty houses

01:11:18 asciilifeform: (to ward off squatters, presumably)

01:11:20 mircea_popescu: aha.

01:13:01 asciilifeform: most of usa likely ~does~ think fiorina was ceo, or obama - law professor

01:13:18 asciilifeform: or rather, lacks the referents for these words that would let them say 'no'

01:24:23 asciilifeform: oh but no, they don't try to maintain the ~inside~

01:24:45 asciilifeform: it normally does not last very long, and the thing drops to below-value-of-land (buyer must pay for demolition)

01:25:06 asciilifeform: instead, just appearances.

01:25:50 asciilifeform: an empty house, from usg's standpoint, still does 90% of its job - keeping 'property values!111!!111!!1' sky-high.

01:26:01 asciilifeform: by not being sold 'under' price.

01:26:01 mircea_popescu: im sure they're trying to stuff the bill into SOMETHING. an acquisition of some sort, vc capital somewhere, a credit card balance movement to a larger credit card. it hasta.

01:27:06 asciilifeform: commercial buildings, where i live, have been known to rot for years, even a decade, before finally being demolished and replaces with condos that NOBODY BUYS

01:27:47 asciilifeform: but to the folks who ordered this, they still 'work', yes

01:27:54 asciilifeform: nobody needs to live in it, for it to 'work'.

01:28:08 asciilifeform: just keep prices at 400-500K for the remaining chumpers

01:28:22 asciilifeform: it does it just as well by being empty and decaying.

01:28:47 asciilifeform: (so long as this is not immediately obvious to passers-by)

01:29:35 asciilifeform: you can drive around and see this, towers of 'condos' with one or two windows out of every dozen, lit up

01:29:51 asciilifeform: (often these, on close examination, are stairwells, no one lives there)

01:30:06 mircea_popescu: well sure, for as long as a usg-pretense exists to keep bankrolling everyone's pretense, everyone's gonna keep on pretending.

01:30:27 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the physical manifestations of this bezzle are surprisingly public and visible

01:30:48 asciilifeform: perhaps these, too, will 'go the way of the snake's legs' eventually

01:30:53 asciilifeform: like the physical fighter jets did

01:31:18 mircea_popescu: afaik they still pretend re the jets.

01:32:59 asciilifeform: a handful of machines after $trillion is not much of a presence

A functioning grassland prairie produces more biomass each year than does even the most technologically advanced wheat field. The problem is, it's mostly a form of grass and grass roots that humans can't eat. So we replace the prairie with our own preferred grass, wheat. Never mind that we feed most of our grain to livestock, and that livestock is perfectly c

15:24:31 asciilifeform: The reason it is notable, is that someone at or near the location in Sterling, VA is performing a MITM attack on Cryptome visitors, and this image out of the slidedeck with the two GPS coordinates is the U.S. Government performing a MITM attack against Cryptome and sharing the collected intelligence with the Brits, or the U.S. Government giving the British government backdoor access into the U.S. (illegal) collection systems.'
