danielpbarron: >> Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.
danielpbarron: see also: http://atruechurch.info/homosexuality.html >> In its decision to declare homosexual marriage a "fundamental right," the Supreme Court has completely missed its God-given purpose. Instead of being "an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil," they have exalted vileness among the sons of men. And, as the Scripture says, the wicked will prowl on every side (Psalm 12:8).
mircea_popescu: i suspect the supreme court is very unadherent to the theory it has any missions from god.
BingoBoingo: <phf> well, if you assemble a car out of chinese parts in alaska it still wouldn't be an alaskan car, but the line gets blurry << Many proud "USA!!!" mower made in USA, even varied manufacters (even when accounting for companies collecting "badges"). Motors usually now made by Loncin motor company of China. But USA!!! made the mower!!!

ben_vulpes: wiley hackers, i tell you! they could be trying to get in, right this minute, through the window! or maybe just by talking to their wife, they can learn enough to put into their artificial intelligence hackery machines to make guesses at your password! you need this thing! that we sell!
asciilifeform: ( homeopath, astrologer, alchemist, perpetuum mobilist, can quite easily get 'nsf grant' if he sticks to the Official terminology, and -- importantly -- has the right pedigree / institutional cocksuckery )
mircea_popescu: hey, it works because there's a large contingent of morons who "want to move on with their life". what fucking life ? "make money on auto-pilot". bitch... do do what ? i wouldn't make money on auto-pilot if you paid me to!
mircea_popescu: what the fuck do they do in all that time they saved ?
mircea_popescu: and it's universal, "oh, buy the wife white goods so she has more time to grow bitter in!"
mircea_popescu: fuck that shit, grind my coffee by hand every morning and be happy to be naked.
mircea_popescu: there;s no fucking life to "get on with" outside of all the shit you don't do but should have.
asciilifeform: people with 'no theorems to prove' rot, whether grinding coffee is motorized or with pestle.
asciilifeform: my current understanding is that mircea_popescu subscribes to this philosophy re women?
mircea_popescu: do you recall the threadf where rich people ate white flour, which made poor people want to eat white flour, which made idiots misdirect some of the power of industrialization to give it to them, which made them sick, whichj continued the vicious cycle until someone figuredf it out and now people mostly eat brown flour ?
asciilifeform: 'devil makes work for idle hands' being the engl. proverb
mircea_popescu: what that most productive activity is depends on the woman, or man, or dog. to replace others may be a good idea (or not -- how smart is it to not walk because car and then gym because no exercise ?) but entirely replacing the poor sod out of productive activity and thereby world relevancy is psychological poison.
mircea_popescu: let her ENJOY the fact that she actually is a thing of this world and contributes with her hands to this world. why shouldn't she.
mircea_popescu: let the woman be a thing as often as practicable, it sure as fuck beats her being a figment of someone's imagination. and other alternatives DO NOT EXIST.
asciilifeform: how does working with a power tool preclude 'contribute with hands, be a thing of this world' etc ?
mircea_popescu: does not preclude. but in most cases, woman who no longer has to cook daily because fridge works with the reddiTV.
mircea_popescu: which is why i say -- depends on woman. if she can be useful with a tank buy her a fucking tank, why not.
asciilifeform: asciilifeform's pet for instance has a full complement of power equipment. and cooks daily.
asciilifeform: which is why i suspect that it ain't about the tools.
mircea_popescu: whole thread is a restatement of "machinery is to enhance not to replace human"
mircea_popescu: (i will for the record point out that the bread example is uniquely adequate because the centurial idiocy that is by now the only meaning of "american" started in this exact manner -- upper class bitches got white goods from westinghouse so they could have their precious butts and worthless heads freed from the chores of everyday so they could focus on... on what ? ON CHARITY!!111. review the "a one woman mission for your own
mircea_popescu: then the lower classes wanted it too, except who the fuck was going to be on the receiving end of all this mass industrialized chairty ?
mircea_popescu: so noncreatures like obama were created for the purpose, and the middle east still bears the burden of this typically usian retardation)
mircea_popescu: by 2010s it's literally a case of "watch tv and vicariously participate in the salvation of imaginary creatures". the keywords are of course "raise awareness" and "educate the public". fruits of a long shriveled vine, that nevertheless the trained eye can readily distinguish.
mircea_popescu: these are the lower middle class women that made it! living the dream of middle class 1910s!
mircea_popescu: somehow the point that "those misfortunate products of teratogenesis were so fucking sad not even their husbands could be paid to fuck em!!1" is never made. but no, ~nobody could be bothered with 1910s "socialite", ie, rich girl with no skills, no utility and no tits.
mircea_popescu: they went into charity because those were the only people who couldn't say no.

phf: i decided to check out one of those communal work coffee shops, and you get every single stereotype here: startup bros, tinder date in progress, political feminists discussing next protest, but what takes the cake is a guy with a typewriter.
asciilifeform: ( the FUCKGOATS schematics you get in the parcel, came out of it )
phf: but yeah a communal work coffee shop is a space that advertises itself as a coffee shop, but mostly consists of permanently parked people with laptops. i'd say about 7-10 years ago it suddenly was hip to work from coffee shop?
asciilifeform: gotta wonder, why would anybody drag a typewriter to a cafe
asciilifeform: ... demonstratively, loudly show off 'see me write!111' ?
phf: i have a writer friend who claims typewriters keep him focused on task at hand, but in this case he purchased one of those radioshack devices, keyboard with 64k of text storage

a111: Logged on 2015-09-21 21:39 phf: mostly amusing, at the local coworking i've probably seen all the stereotypes in flesh. girls with social sciences ph.d. doing research projects, guys pushing feminist rhetoric in every conversation, black transgender talking about white oppression, all manner of "you can do anything" mentality. it's like irl tumblr out there
phf: i think you had office share for a long time (places like Regus), then around early hackernews you had the whole "working from coffee shop" fad. some places started recognizing the fad and catering to that crowd. at some point somebody had an "idea" to update office share image by adding the necessary signaling of the work from coffee shop "culture". actually this coffee shop i'm at (http://www.trystdc.com) predates recent iteration of coworking s
phf: paces. i worked from here in 2005 or so "building startup"
ben_vulpes: there is a wework right down the street
ben_vulpes: it has stapled shameful brass brand plates onto the beautiful old customs building
phf: i've never been to wework, but 1776 is lulzy. last time i was there they had a talk "difficulties facing female CEOs" to a roomful. they also have regular classes like "learning how to program, with ruby on rails" etc.
