Here we see the true face of the reddit foodie - the bugman - revealed. I mean, it is quite obvious that these people are bugmen. They humble brag about the craft beers they are drinking by very conspicuously including them in their food pictures, they shower praise on "cool" corporations whose branding has been specifically designed to dupe them, and they are autistically obsessed over things like the correct steak temperature and the makeup of sandwiches (a painfully inauthentic attempt at authenticity). But all of these are surface level bugman traits. What makes the bugman so insidious, so repulsive, is his underlying character. And in this last thread on automation we see that revealed.

The bugman does not understand, much less appreciate, social interaction. The bugman finds humans to be inefficient, but machines will never get his order wrong. The bugman considers what is best for the markets, without regard for his own community (to be fair, he doesn't have one). Underneath his carefully groomed beard, expensive clothes, and layer of fat grown on IPA's and homemade "'zas", the bugman is a broken person. Lacking - due to his complete immersion in, and submission to, the neoliberal system - the basic capacity to appreciate anything that does not have a market value. They are the perfect consumer, nothing more, nothing less.

Or rather, nothing else.

I want to punch people in the face when they say "Dilly Dilly."

180 poast.  The quoted parts provide a great summary/description of small-souled bugmen for people studying Bugmen 101.

One aspect of the bugman I have long noticed is that they are indeed the consumer drones they posit other less enlightened people to be. The bugmen consider themselves immune to marketing because they scoff at advertising and campaigns not aimed at them, at their demographics - and think highly of themselves for doing so, citing their 'bullshit detectors' or whichever - but will fall for companies that manage to turn their financial success or failure into a revolutionary doctrine, as seen with various outfits over the years with different levels of success - back in the days outfits like Napster, Netscape and Adobe and et cetera et cetera, yadda yadda yadda did it and Apple is the emperor of this. I've seen plenty of people in the past couple of decades who in retrospect fit the bugman archetype pick their pet corporation and cheer it on in the market wars, as though it truly mattered to them one bit.

meta^0: being a consumer drone steered by marketing
meta^1: being "immune" to marketing but "ironically" enjoying it
meta^2: analyzing this trait in bugmen but insisting it's "never something I do"
meta^3: pointing out this chain of escalation while thinking I'm not subject to it
...
meta^∞: weev gets fat on miniature ZOG latkes

:beergoon:

Dude McDonalds does fried potatoes like nobody's business. i've had damn near every potato configuration in the world and McDonalds hashbrowns would rank in the top 25 any day. Yes, I can make all sorts of food, I've read Larousse and Escoffier. That doesn't mean I am going to prepare every single meal I eat. I'm gonna stuff my face with those glorious hashbrowns with sausage patties and cheese in between them and your condescension will never make it less delicious.

You reminded me of a high school story. My APUSH teacher was one of those old-school Silent Gen guys, liked to lecture without slides on the chalkboard. Bit of a leftist, bussed into the South as a Civil Rights Activist, but this was a hard left town so he was center-right by our standards. (He let us skip the Howard Zinn all the other history teachers were reading from.) Trail of Tears, Slavery, Industrial poverty, Imperialism, Japanese Internment camps, he stayed pretty objective and unemotional through it all. But he also had a real fondness for McDonald's as a symbol of American management and technical achievement. Went on about it more than once. So imagine, if you will, a short, lanky, turtleneck Jew giving a lecture on American-Cuban relations, when he stops, sighs, tears welling in his eyes, and says "You know, after the revolution Americans still owned Guantanamo Bay, which was the center of many operations against the Cuban government. And there had a McDonald's on base. So just to taunt the Cubans they used fans to blow the smell of McDonald's French Fries over into Cuba. And I love the smell of McDonald's French Fries." :gooncry:

Relax, yids just took katoffelpuffer and renamed them latkes, like they claim German spelled with Hebrew characters is Yiddish. I thought the difference between potato pancakes and hashbrowns was the egg in the pancakes. Historically, other roots vegetables with onions were popular as potatoes hadn't arrived in the old world yet.

OK, according to the folks in chat, and no less an authority than Tim Dang (!), this does not suck too much to poast in this thread.  I seriously need a better/higher-rez background pic for the cover.  Tips for formatting are appreciated (I'm not going to be hired by anybody for magazine layout anytime soon):

Touching on the "bugman foodie" theme:

Posted Image

Oh, gosh, I feel like such a trog now; this cultured gentleman has not only heard of something called pisco, but he knows the difference between the piscos of two different countries! Tan countries, even. Obviously this guy has done some cosmopolitan traveling.

The bugman response to this would be to outdo this reviewer by

1. doing pisco "research" (consisting of internet search via Amazon Echo ["Alexa, what is pisco?"])

2. using language app to learn Spanish for tangential reason barely, but somehow, related to pisco research--mb thinking he'll ask a South American person about it or something but not really

3. visiting the restaurant from the above review and maybe one other for comparison--but just for the selfie, with eating as a secondary goal

4. (newly expert) writing a review ham-handedly indicating he knows the difference among piscos of various regions within the countries based on what Alexa told him, then hoping the original reviewer reads his review and feels outdone.

This is the bugmen's battlefield; they  cannot outcompete one another in a traditional, human way such as a fistfight or in-person verbal beatdown. Funny part is, they actually see themselves as above such things.

As discussed in many threads here, bugmen also don't know how to be real. Their substitute for authenticity therefore consists of nerdily micro-dissecting everything in the universe

1. to appear cutting-edge and worldly (something they see as positive)

2. to seem to have personal knowledge of a topic (as touched upon by TOG and others in another thread)

3. to seem too refined and unique for potential mates to take an interest in them (if they are even interested in such interaction; probably not, would interfere with tequila tastings).

Here's the reviewer's Google+ page description:

These two (disgraced FBI agents Strzok and Page) don't present as typical bugpeople - they have a more gaunt, predatory aspect - yet I offer them for consideration nevertheless. I'm interested to see if anyone can classify them.

This obsessive need to label oneself and others is a hallmark of the small-souled. The bug-man lacks the confidence to simply be himself. He sees himself only through the eyes of the other. Validation is his only sustenance. Thus the need for labels and in-group identifications and signaling. "No true foodie..." Everything is a "lifestyle choice" from an endless buffet of bullshit. It's just role-playing. Nothing matters. "These people are nihilists, Donnie, there's nothing to be afraid of."  

And f**king "android enthusiast," Jesus Christ, is that something to be proud of? Who gives a f**k what your phone does?

I'll tell you what I am afraid of: wasting my life. Being a vagina. Missing out. Drowning my soul in endless trivialities. I don't want to be a f**king "foodie," I want to eat delicious things until I get sick. I want to get drunk on champagne and liquor.
