25-11-2014 04:39:55 <asciilifeform> see also mircea_popescu's article 'on your way out of the gravity well, this awaits you'
25-11-2014 04:34:38 <asciilifeform> !s gravity well
15-11-2014 18:14:22 <asciilifeform> some people don't react well to a (perceived) collapse of fantasy of escape from gravity well.
15-11-2014 17:17:03 <pete_dushenski> meh gravity well is 75% in your own noodle
15-11-2014 17:16:25 <ben_vulpes> planes don't escape the gravity well.
15-11-2014 17:05:10 <ben_vulpes> but it's kind of an estes scale thing, and i want a giant tower of hydrocarbons atop which to ride out of this gravity well.
30-10-2014 20:21:44 <asciilifeform> i will answer the secret question which i can answer. 1) i personally can't pay rent with btc without giving up every other one to usg. 2) cost of extrication from gravity well is inconceivably high. 3) no one crowned me hero to begin with, why even ask.
26-10-2014 22:56:26 <mircea_popescu> asciilifeform it IS a way out of gravity well.
14-10-2014 21:38:29 <asciilifeform> jurov: recall my gravity well analogy. one gram of rocket fuel gets you nowhere nearer to escaping, e.g., earth or moon. a hundred tonnes - does. the gram brings you nearer to blowing out from the well only in the sense that it's one gram less that you must collect.
14-10-2014 20:03:38 <asciilifeform> deep inside the gravity well, probably not getting out alive; but will carry out project no. 1 and hopefully no. 2 as well before obola calls my name.
30-09-2014 19:21:13 <hanbot> never been stuck in a gravity well, but i find escape from most anything hinges on ability to recognize and part with things that aren't needed. escape based on what one'd rather keep/is fond of mostly consists of waiting afaik.
30-09-2014 19:17:23 <asciilifeform> basic mechanics of escape from a gravity well - and of escape from a country - are very similar, i dare say. you need sufficient energy (usually in the form of hard currency, but can be some unusual substitute like familial, mob, or military 'in
27-07-2014 02:16:37 <DreadKnight> Kushed, just because they're from a different place doesn't mean they're not affected by polarity / gravity and yin&yang as well
06-06-2014 14:23:48 <*> asciilifeform sits dourly in gravity well
06-04-2014 05:03:10 <asciilifeform> i have to, after all, concede that folks who have escaped from gravity well, while i sit in, are more clever than i
