BingoBoingo: !~later tell douchebag ^ the above logline has some interesting history
mircea_popescu: o yeah speaking of which, hey douchebag whatever happened to that tea chick ?
mircea_popescu: imagine the waitresses of today. loose hundred dollar bills and trips to costa rica are such a common everyday occurence in their lives, they don't even have to go chasing. let opportunity chase after the broad instead, is it postmodernism or innit?!?!?!
BingoBoingo: Kinda like going to the Ozarks when you already live in St Louis
mircea_popescu: or they despise themselves so much (as the direct and also necessary result of spending all their time involved with absolutely nothing else) that they automatically discount anything that happens to them by like 99.9999999%. because, as the wise timuruc once said, "if you were a millionaire you wouldn't be talking to me"
a111: Logged on 2018-03-31 16:40 mircea_popescu: i would really like a list of "all personal blogs older than a decade" right about now.
mircea_popescu: (guy, notably, is the ~only ustard "literary critic" to have actually read joyce's manuscripts. and you have to hear of this from me because the pantsuit is busy discussing the pseudoachievements of black chicks or w/e the fuck they do.)
mircea_popescu: jesus christ why is peterme.com orange ;/ and what the fuck is this, one self-promotion item from jan 2017, another pushing a book from august 2016 and a third from april ? jesus christ these people lack any insides already.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the fact that none of the early bloggers were actually literate minds shows. to give up the power of literature for the lure of "oral history" ? madness.
mircea_popescu: http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~awb/linux.history.html << early history of linux is probably important since we're doing so many start-of-world things. note how it was never intended to be an os, it was intended to be a "a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones" in order to... "it was a project to teach me about the 386".
mircea_popescu: considering also "Simply, I'd say that porting is impossible. As already mentioned, it uses a MMU, for both paging (not to disk yet) and segmentation. It's the segmentation that makes it REALLY 386 dependent (every task has a 64Mb segment for code & data - max 64 tasks in 4Gb. Anybody who needs more than 64Mb/task - tough cookies)." i'd say it actually broadly lives up to the original design -- linux is a fine non-professiona
mircea_popescu: l approach for one hobbist in finland to lift into his own head the gnarl of 386.
mircea_popescu: precious little ELSE it does, but then again my screwdriver also doesn't juice oranges.
douchebag: It's mainly an issue of the whole mentality where people think they're entitled to success
douchebag: Every black just seems to think their only chance for success is to become a famous rapper, and if they're not a famous rapper they choose to sell drugs instead of working a real job
mircea_popescu: well, net access compressed the space of perceived possibility. 1949 people read about a murder done for 50k and thought it made sense. today's kids think a job that doesn't pay 1mn a year isn't really worth getting out of bed ; let alone good enough to commit murder.
mircea_popescu: and from the other side of the double whammy, there.is.literally.nothing.to.do.
douchebag: mircea_popescu: I know people around here who would kill for $800
douchebag: Considering murder is glorified by modern rap music
mircea_popescu: who could have predicted (tm) that "we'll make an economy out of doing each other's laundry" nonsense will soon devolve of "we're stuck here, crabs in a pot, trying to sling an array of pointless dopes on each other".
douchebag: I don't know a single person who doesn't use drugs here. Whether it be weed or shotting heroin up your arm
douchebag: Most people I know, especially college students seem to think that they're going to be famous - and if they're not famous they keep reaching towards unachievable goals
douchebag: Some of them even admit to having no skill - yet still feel entitled
mircea_popescu: douchebag you ever saw tlp btw ? i guess you might enjoy. iirc he also lived somewhere great-lakes-ish. even got held up by a "patient" once
douchebag: mircea_popescu: I've got bullet fragments lodged in my leg due to a driveby shooting at a gas station
mircea_popescu: in other "motherfucking hell" : linux got " US/German/French/Finnish keyboards" in v 0.11! along with other boneheaded idiocies like "code/data sharing between unrelated processes". wonder of wonders, there was actually NO philosophical community here, since the get-go. pure incidentals.
mircea_popescu: now look here you nutjobs. mysql run once per user is WORSE a situation than the kernel run once per user. both apache and mysql are made to be one-for-all. this is not something you can negotiate by yourselves on the quiet in a day.
mircea_popescu: mysql has a permissions structure, why not fucking use it.
mircea_popescu: and moreover, when you tell me it's gonna be a day a week ago and then send your people on an insane mission through the jungle to build you a mountaintop aircraft submarine, you'd better fucking say something.
BingoBoingo: zineKing: Who is your daddy, what does he do, and how does he unpack the gnu symbol in your head today?
BingoBoingo: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-01#1791878 << On this point the Northern Latinas, Venezolanas y Peruanas (And Chileñas though they aren't too much more Northern) know what they are doing. As long as the response is playful they remain worshipful. Uruguayas and it seems most Argentinas... whatever triggers their Laughs-Estrogen-Fun cycle seems to be broken. Deeply.
a111: Logged on 2018-04-01 17:18 mircea_popescu: i think they know what they're doing.
BingoBoingo: True. Still not sure where all the children come from here, but they sure do love making a show out of torturing their parents.
BingoBoingo: Last Sunday I had the priviledge of seeing one of the little monsters dive into the foot of a male probably relative (can't tell if cuck or father) and got himself good and kicked in the head while tripping the victim.
a111: Logged on 2018-03-26 16:06 mircea_popescu: anyway. boston managed to make "the defining question" be "what does america want to see ?" and then managed to convince the midwest that what california people think is hip is bostonolade ; then took those numbers and showed california that "what america wants to see!!" is bostonolade.
mircea_popescu: boston told them it's impossible to travel, no such thing as learning languages or handling non-pantsuit fiatola currency is possible for human hands and minds.
mircea_popescu: and they believe, because that's what it means to be a retard : you trust your parents. even the ones that whore you out since you were 3yo.
BingoBoingo: It's no small irony that the Make Alt-Alt Again folks... Or USian rebels in general will come so close to getting things right... Then they drink the Bostonolade that keeps them home.
BingoBoingo: Identify the empire is collapse, sure they can do it.
mircea_popescu: not more than the "rebelious" preteens that still go home to eat.
BingoBoingo: Contemplate GTFO? Nah they have a zombie apocalypse to wait for.
