00:15:03 asciilifeform: so it turns out that i spoke too soon:

00:15:26 asciilifeform: some time near after 208000, a block is rejected!

00:16:10 asciilifeform: re: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=30-06-2015#1182007

00:16:10 assbot: Logged on 30-06-2015 20:01:39; ascii_field: for what it's worth, all the blocks i got from mircea_popescu are successfully eaten by my 0.5.4

00:16:21 asciilifeform: presently running the entire experiment again, to verify

00:16:46 asciilifeform: the best-case scenario is that this is a 'cosmic ray'

00:16:55 asciilifeform: thing was running on a portable, in a knapsack, in a car...

00:17:12 mod6: will this have any impact on the hashes that are posted here? http://www.loper-os.org/pub/turdsums/sums.txt.gz

00:17:54 asciilifeform: will run those again also

00:18:04 asciilifeform: on the output of the present 'eat'

00:18:18 mod6: ok cool

00:18:32 asciilifeform: it'll be hilarious if we're hitting the limits of non-ecc ram or the like

00:19:42 asciilifeform: sha256(blk0001.dat) for this run: 7aac5826b91b4f87a2e9534e0e38e8d64ed21aff8a4eb8ff8dde4e726e67fe1a

00:19:49 asciilifeform: (same as for all my synced 0.5.3's)

00:25:18 mod6: i have 3 full-sync'd chains from between January and March, all have the same blk0001.dat hash: sha256sum blk0001.dat \ 7aac5826b91b4f87a2e9534e0e38e8d64ed21aff8a4eb8ff8dde4e726e67fe1a blk0001.dat

00:25:43 trinque: BingoBoingo: I thought it was gonna be somebody being face-sat

00:28:24 asciilifeform: https://bitcointa.lk/threads/reduced-final-state-blk0001-dat-with-pruned-index.59545

00:28:35 asciilifeform: ^ he got 7aac5826b91b4f87a2e9534e0e38e8d64ed21aff8a4eb8ff8dde4e726e67fe1a as well

00:28:50 asciilifeform: claims 188529 blocks

00:28:54 *: asciilifeform has not verified the latter

00:30:38 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu ^^^^

00:39:02 *: asciilifeform has the same ill feeling an astronomer might have were 'seti' signal to appear

00:39:20 asciilifeform: 'is it my instruments? lsd in the water?'

00:40:23 asciilifeform: ~3 hours from now, will know...

00:40:50 asciilifeform: and this is just about my copy, not even starting with mircea_popescu's

00:43:36 BingoBoingo: * asciilifeform has the same ill feeling an astronomer might have were 'seti' signal to appear << We've outgrown everything but Z80+ECC and somehow that is too slow

00:43:49 asciilifeform: z80 never supported ecc

00:44:14 asciilifeform: (technically, one ~could~ retrofit it, with some glue logic)

00:46:46 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=30-06-2015#1181921 << the experiment in question, for anyone who missed

00:46:46 assbot: Logged on 30-06-2015 19:12:49; ascii_field: in other nyooz, 'dumpblock' for the sums.txt.gz mircea_popescu set 0..n and subsequent 'eatblock' in brand-new stator - works

00:48:15 asciilifeform: the only thing i'm pretty sure of at this point is that nothing peculiar happened - at least on this machine - through block 188529.

00:48:50 asciilifeform: (checksum spoken of earlier agrees with every copy of blk0001 i've been able to locate, other than the one cited by mircea_popescu)

00:51:16 phf: is it possibly non-determenism from a dozen or so places where size_t is read into int?

00:51:48 asciilifeform: phf: it is difficult to rule anything out at this point

00:52:14 asciilifeform: one might naively imagine that obvious bugs cirta '12 will not turn up today

00:52:19 asciilifeform: but devil only knows

00:52:31 asciilifeform: *circa

00:54:45 asciilifeform: original purpose of this experiment was to gather 'pmap -XX <pid>' stats for plotting

00:55:05 asciilifeform: it did not even occur to me that the 'eater' might barf

00:56:01 asciilifeform: i set it up earlier today and mostly forgot about it

00:56:53 asciilifeform: (recall, in a 'bastard-free' bitcoind - which is what i have - no block can be 'eaten' unless it squarely agrees with its immediate antecedent block)

00:57:51 asciilifeform: in the 'longest chain' sense

00:59:39 *: asciilifeform is trying and failing to think of a benign explanation for the anomaly

01:00:42 phf: right, eatblock/dumpblock lets you construct any arbitrary correct chain, block by block, including the known blockchain, in a fully deterministic way. seem like important building blocks of proper engineering.

01:01:24 asciilifeform: phf: why these were absent from the original bitcoin is still an enigma to me

01:01:28 *: shinohai applauds

01:14:17 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 29050 @ 0.00046004 = 13.3642 BTC [-]

01:17:44 *: BingoBoingo would really like box powered by 3GHz Z80 with ecc and 64 bit address space bolted on

01:23:36 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1307/4681642407_3537daf466_b.jpg

01:23:37 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1R35pDn )

01:24:27 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Exactly. That is one beautiful machine fulfilling its destiny to do REAL work. Not this pansy shit 'Murican pickup trucks do.

01:49:20 decimation: asciilifeform: do you have the complete blockdump file?

02:00:27 asciilifeform: of course

02:01:24 decimation: can share?

02:01:45 asciilifeform: will, once i find a place to drop these where i'm not paying per byte

02:01:49 decimation: hehe

02:01:53 decimation: how big is it?

02:02:24 asciilifeform: the dataset in question - blocks pulled from mircea_popescu's node on the night of june 28-29 - is ~5.5GB

02:02:58 asciilifeform: the sha512 checksums were posted earlier

02:03:17 decimation: pity, that's a big too large for a cutout dropbox account

02:03:19 asciilifeform: it should not be difficult to find out, right now, if you have the same blockchain

02:03:28 decimation: good point.

02:04:03 asciilifeform: if i replicate the anomaly, i will post the 'interesting' region

02:04:48 asciilifeform: thing is just about past 177000 now

02:04:58 asciilifeform: but the blocks are starting to get fatter there

02:05:50 asciilifeform: the 'magic moment,' whatever its nature, happened well into blk0002

02:08:19 decimation: ?? block 2 is bad?

02:08:43 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=01-07-2015#1182166

02:08:43 assbot: Logged on 01-07-2015 00:28:50; asciilifeform: claims 188529 blocks

02:08:47 asciilifeform: ^ in blk0001

02:09:01 asciilifeform: blk0002 - a certain number, certainly smaller, after that

02:09:11 decimation: oh you mean the bdb files?

02:09:13 asciilifeform: aha

02:09:19 decimation: interesting.

02:09:20 asciilifeform: these aren't bdb though!

02:09:23 asciilifeform: they're raw blocks

02:09:29 asciilifeform: bdb only stores indices

02:09:37 asciilifeform: which are derived from blocks

02:09:45 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu made same mistake earlier

02:10:12 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=30-06-2015#1182036 << see thread

02:10:12 assbot: Logged on 30-06-2015 20:26:24; ascii_field: these aren't bdb files!

02:10:30 asciilifeform: this is an important point

02:10:49 asciilifeform: they have nothing to do with bdb and should not vary at all (once they reach full size, ~2GB) between nodes

02:11:44 asciilifeform: (well, certainly not after longest-chain is established)

02:14:42 decimation: lol he dumps to disk directly

02:14:52 asciilifeform: http://btc.yt/lxr/satoshi/source/src/main.h#0932 << required reading

02:14:53 assbot: Satoshi 0.5.3.1/src/main.h ... ( http://bit.ly/1JrxIEC )

02:15:13 decimation: yeah I was looking at that

02:15:55 asciilifeform: http://btc.yt/lxr/satoshi/source/src/main.cpp#0643 << and.

02:15:56 assbot: Satoshi 0.5.3.1/src/main.cpp ... ( http://bit.ly/1Jry6TC )

02:18:25 decimation: what does he use the database for then? faster lookup?

02:18:39 asciilifeform: aha

02:18:46 asciilifeform: otherwise you'd have O(N)

02:19:05 asciilifeform: same reason anybody uses a db for anything..

02:19:38 decimation: yeah, but why also save flat file

02:20:31 asciilifeform: because ultimately it is the canonical blockchain.

02:20:47 decimation: 7aac5826b91b4f87a2e9534e0e38e8d64ed21aff8a4eb8ff8dde4e726e67fe1a blk0001.dat

02:20:51 decimation: same as yours

02:21:36 asciilifeform: well, anomaly didn't happen in that one

02:21:41 asciilifeform: (except possibly on mircea_popescu's box...)

02:21:46 decimation: 796f65be10ef2e5fc27b97b09f312c9f8ddd7d1c3ab0f27f356a5b1dbf5a8963 blk0002.dat

02:22:06 decimation: these were made with your thermonuke patch

02:23:07 asciilifeform: ^ is the same on the ~original~ (that is, received on that night from mircea_popescu) copy

02:23:48 decimation: okay, that's good I guess

02:24:03 decimation: what happens at block 188529

02:25:05 mod6: all three of my chains from Jan-Mar 2015 have: 796f65be10ef2e5fc27b97b09f312c9f8ddd7d1c3ab0f27f356a5b1dbf5a8963 blk0002.dat

02:28:41 decimation: blk0001.dat and blk0002.dat have the same size as this thread (at the bottom) https://bitcointa.lk/threads/reduced-final-state-blk0001-dat-with-pruned-index.59545/

02:49:51 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 36900 @ 0.00045477 = 16.781 BTC [-] {2}

02:50:14 asciilifeform: ^ not a single one of these lines up with mircea_popescu's

02:50:14 mod6: yeah, i don't have any of those.

02:50:45 decimation: ^ mine match them all

02:50:52 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7200 @ 0.00045013 = 3.2409 BTC [-]

02:50:54 mod6: mine were sync'd with some pre-v0.5.3.1-RELEASE [ v0.5.3 + some patches ], sync'd the old way from irc.

02:51:14 mod6: *seeded via irc

02:51:17 decimation: I'm afraid it's gonna take going over with a fine-tooth comb

02:51:24 asciilifeform: now my current understanding is that mircea_popescu has an excuse:

02:51:32 mod6: decimation: yours match mine, or mp's lis?

02:51:33 mod6: *list

02:51:52 decimation: matches yours

02:51:53 asciilifeform: if his blk** are ~original~ - as in, they were formed ~as the blocks happened~ - they can contain orphaned (in the traditional sense) blocks

02:52:01 decimation: yeah that's true

02:52:10 asciilifeform: but any subsequent sync against his node is expected to match the canonicals.

02:52:14 decimation: gonna have to 'reingest' them to sort them out

02:53:02 asciilifeform: notice that there is no mechanism in bitcoind for ~erasing~ anything from the raw block files.

02:54:25 mod6: huh, now i have one chain that has 2 that match and one that differs: f7ab989febce649e49f8373f1c5a5fbd44008dd21eaf16ce0d1b73e1070421f0 blk0008.dat && b1d0da3ff6b2b2d6da096f06cf7359ca98e08490ab61202f94468587f51aaee5 blk0008.dat

02:54:30 decimation: no, but you could antimate a node, peer with it, force it to shit out

02:55:06 asciilifeform: mod6: differs ~while being complete~ ?

02:55:09 mod6: and all 3 of my blk0009.dat's do not match

02:55:19 asciilifeform: that is, the differing files are followed by another ?

02:55:35 asciilifeform: (because if sync is not complete, then naturally last blk**** will differ)

02:56:09 decimation: yeah if it's the last file, it's incomplete

02:56:13 asciilifeform: aha

02:56:19 mod6: these were fully sync'd up to ~320`000 blocks or so. they were shutdown after full sync was achieved. each goes upto like blk0017.dat

02:57:01 mod6: fa97f9f51bd130758910563ad7976014736b8b8ec021ed9f5dbc3c4b87d3703a blk0009.dat | 2f7acbd7b5603a845a5d380ffb6ff3be051ab8b192ae143b0916a07564d5cbc5 blk0009.dat | 1631edac873633135b9eb9b8214d6d2b30d708d00ec4dd1db6a9bf09f384551b blk0009.dat

02:57:18 decimation: mine stops at blk0008.dat

02:57:40 mod6: on a fully sync'd node?

02:58:26 mod6: whats the full size of your blockchain? mine's like ... ~38Gb

03:03:15 mod6: huh. yours dont match ours or mps

03:03:19 asciilifeform: with ecc ram, no less

03:03:23 asciilifeform: and raid5

03:03:48 asciilifeform: (the latter with nightly parity checks!)

03:05:13 decimation: with orphans?

03:05:21 asciilifeform: almost certainly

03:05:33 asciilifeform: (for the same reason as mircea_popescu's)

03:05:56 asciilifeform: they were moved from an earlier disk, where the thing was going from late 2010

03:05:58 asciilifeform: iirc

03:10:49 *: asciilifeform observes that the 'eater' has completed blk0001

03:10:59 asciilifeform: is presently past 189070

03:11:06 asciilifeform: anomaly has not recurred yet

03:11:12 asciilifeform: (but is not expected for a while)

03:12:01 asciilifeform: sha256(blk0001.dat) is equal to the expected value.

03:14:16 asciilifeform: mod6: where are the 3rd items in these triples from ?

03:14:24 asciilifeform: anything peculiar about that node ?

03:16:12 mod6: so one of them seems to be more screwed up than the others. but there were blocks like blk0009.dat & 10 where all were different.

03:32:09 phf: fwiw dumpblock is expensive, because walks blockchain in order. a "dumpdb" that iterates over mapBlockIndex and does ReadFromDisk/<< for each block might be a reasonably fast way to split .db into separate block files

03:32:31 asciilifeform: phf: by far the simplest possible way is to simply walk the binary

15:48:41 mircea_popescu: some of the healty, sane boys will put a lot of work into it, and get good enough to compete with us.

15:49:11 mircea_popescu: some of the anal children will instead make a "different" version of yachthing, which will consist of, for instance, birling.

15:49:56 mircea_popescu: why ? because intelligence and ambition are unrelated, and the ambitiously ungifted have absolutely no incentive in recognizing their shortcoming. it's not that it's cheaper to pretend. it's that literally no other alternative is present.

15:50:21 mircea_popescu: and so... they "are crypto entusiasts" and "You can go much stronger than that" and so on.

15:50:47 mircea_popescu: all the avatars of orphaned boyhood, kids who grow up without a father have no idea what games to play are there.

15:55:09 mod6: lol birling

15:56:52 mircea_popescu: it's a thing.

15:58:31 mircea_popescu: anyway, the broadly fraudulent proposition that "you can make yourself better through X Y Z" be they hard work or prayer or anything else fundamentally exists as a direly needed social control mechanism. because the social cost of the ambitiously ungifted is plainly immense, societies have universally and often independently constructed this method to deal with the afflicted.

15:59:22 mircea_popescu: now, it existed as a cleaner, more useful thing before being coopted for this purpose, of course. much like anything else that's now being used to make large population densities possible was a lot nicer before being shat on

17:43:07 jurov: Jautenim: problem was here, all three came through

17:43:09 mircea_popescu: anyway, it is interesting to point out that the first 2 gb blockindes fit a whopping 188k blocks

17:43:17 mircea_popescu: these days they're still fitting 3-5k blocks.

17:43:37 mircea_popescu: soon it will be a new 2gb file each two weeks.

17:44:13 ascii_field: aha, that's about right for 10min, 1MB blocks

17:44:17 ascii_field: (upper limit)

17:44:40 decimation: you know with these 'blockchain bitrates' I would be concerned about bitrot on disks

17:44:45 decimation: not like pogos have ecc

17:44:57 ascii_field: decimation: i'm pretty certain that i experienced a bitflip last night

17:45:15 decimation: actually, this is an excellent case for putting ecc in bitcoin

17:45:28 ascii_field: decimation: ecc cannot be implemented in software

17:45:32 decimation: or at least, in the disk-storage gismo

17:45:34 decimation: why not

17:45:38 ascii_field: (to an extent, sure, but ~any bit~ can flip)

17:45:45 ascii_field: including arbitrary code bit

17:46:04 decimation: yeah, but I don't give a shit if a pogo's code bit flips, probably will crash

17:46:10 ascii_field: mno

17:46:18 ascii_field: this is very much a mistake

17:46:25 decimation: I do give a shit if none of the pogos have a coherent record of the blocks

17:46:53 mircea_popescu: decimation very much so.

17:46:53 mircea_popescu: there are many considerations here. for instance, as an exercise to the trainee : calculate the minimum storage space required to GUARANTEE bit=wise identity over X bytes of information.

17:47:11 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: that one's easy - infinity

17:47:25 decimation: in noisy channels there are no guarantees

17:47:30 ascii_field: ^

17:47:57 mircea_popescu: obviously, for t = infinity the size -> infinity.

17:47:57 mircea_popescu: wait, wut ?!

17:48:00 ascii_field: best one can hope for is to get it an order of magnitude below 'asteroid hits your computer' probability

17:48:23 decimation: ascii_field: the problem: try finding reliable statistics on your consumer grade hard drives

17:48:35 mircea_popescu: myeah.

17:48:51 mircea_popescu: because we live in the best possible world built on top of !!!science!!! so nothing is ever sold by any sort of spec.

17:49:28 ascii_field: (mask rom for known blocks from the past, antifuse for future ones)

17:49:52 ascii_field: both are immune to anything short of room-melting level of radiation

18:11:04 mircea_popescu: because yes, the point of life is to preserve that most valuable delusion - that "nobody could have foreseen..."

18:11:07 decimation: well, as far as bitcoin exchanges are concerned

18:11:18 mircea_popescu: essentially the adult version of "but daddy, all the kids in class got this question wrong too!"

18:12:01 mircea_popescu: but to get back to jurov's more interesting thread

18:12:07 mircea_popescu: netstat wut ?

18:12:29 jurov: netstat -tnp

18:12:30 *: mircea_popescu is trying to bootstrap the public interest in the matter into getting a networking education for himself.

18:12:40 mircea_popescu: sudo ? or just plain ?

18:12:48 jurov: and it shows all open connections, with kernel buffers

18:12:51 jurov: usually sudo

18:13:17 decimation: yeah, find ascii's connection and see what the sendQ value is

18:13:36 jurov: with general conclusion that if SendQ buffer is empty then it's application fault

18:14:09 decimation: assuming that this is the last machine that touches it before it goes to your isp

18:14:10 jurov: otherwise either kernel stalls or pipe is congested(dropped packets, whatever)

18:14:49 mircea_popescu: stuff like 422816 k in the sendq

18:14:50 decimation: the stereotypical 'buffer bloat' problem is that you find packets become extremely lagged when there is heavy bandwidth use

18:15:05 mircea_popescu: but atm i don't even see stan's client connected.

18:16:03 mircea_popescu: <jurov> otherwise either kernel stalls or pipe is congested(dropped packets, whatever) << i thought this may well be it previously, as load was uncharacteristically high for this application. but solved that problem and apparently no improvement.

18:17:21 mircea_popescu: decimation i know, but this is a major server doing all sorts of other things. it could not stand for five minutes if that were the problem.

18:20:16 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: the latter we now call 'bastard'

18:20:33 mircea_popescu: alright. but the former's still stale rather than orphan

18:20:42 mircea_popescu: as it does have a daddy, just, daddy got married with a wanton slut

18:20:48 ascii_field: l0l aha

18:20:54 mircea_popescu: romaian would be "dezmostenit"

18:20:58 mircea_popescu: not sure english comprehends.

18:21:36 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: the terminology 'orphan' is used in the source, hence why i referred to it

18:21:48 ascii_field: ('stale' is a better term, but does not appear in src)

18:22:02 mircea_popescu: aha. but anyway : yes all my blks are original in that sense, this bneing the whole point of the exercise.

18:28:48 assbot: File formats -- blkindex.dat and blk0001.dat ... ( http://bit.ly/1f1Vm0F )

18:30:25 mircea_popescu: ascii_field eh. proceeding from the other direction : not only is the need for a bdb datastore directly indicative of allignment problems, but moreover its presence virtually guarantees them. so no, i don't think you can actually rely on "block after block" thing, but then again i can't be arsed to emacs a .dat

18:31:17 mircea_popescu: honestly the only sane arrangement would be either a) store each block as a file, or else b) store blocks in arbitrary sized files, each starting at offsed 1Mb * block_count

18:31:21 ascii_field: the bdb thing is for tx (and block-by-header) indexing

18:31:29 ascii_field: as so the thing doesn't end up running in O(N) time

18:31:45 ascii_field: 'each block as a file' strains filesystem

18:31:49 mircea_popescu: no fucking idea why it hasn't implemented a from the get go incidentally.

18:31:52 ascii_field: (and kills winblowz dead of course)

18:31:56 mircea_popescu: yeah but filesystem is who is supposed to deal with this.

18:31:59 mircea_popescu: NOT MY JOB OMFG

18:32:06 mircea_popescu: let the problem be solved once and solved well.

18:32:09 ascii_field: filesystems (other than reiser) don't like dir full of millions of turdz

18:32:17 mircea_popescu: so make it a dir tree.

18:32:18 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 49923 @ 0.00051175 = 25.5481 BTC [-] {2}

18:32:26 ascii_field: it is easy to solve. just define custom fs for blockchain

18:32:29 ascii_field: we spoke of this ages ago

18:32:34 mircea_popescu: myeah.

18:32:38 ascii_field: let it have own block device.

18:32:43 mircea_popescu: yet another place where bitcoind and kernel merge.

18:32:59 mircea_popescu: because if you run bitcoin on that system, ALL the tradeoffs the kernel makes MUST be organised around its needs.

18:33:04 ascii_field: it is what i wanted to do in the mythical msdos port

18:33:22 mircea_popescu: maybe not msdos, but i think cp/m would actually suffice for everything involved.

18:33:37 ascii_field: (msdos, as we know, won't eat a +2G fs - but doesn't give a damn what you say to the disk controller. so roll your own.)

18:33:53 ascii_field: the only thing that even needs an os in the usual sense is the threading

18:34:16 ascii_field: and not, as naive might suppose, the tcp/ip !

18:34:25 decimation: you could make a dirtree

18:34:25 ascii_field: there are ~working~ tcp stacks for 'bare bios'

18:34:27 ascii_field: i have one here

18:34:28 mircea_popescu: in any case i regard the blkxxx scheme as a hare brained, buggy slow and stupid reimplementation of a filesystem in a kernel that's trying to be an app.

18:34:37 ascii_field: aha

18:34:39 decimation: I used one for 80806

18:34:42 decimation: 8086

18:34:49 decimation: called 'ka9q nos'

18:34:59 decimation: ran in dos

18:35:11 jurov: iirc there's vfat driver for ms-dos.. some 200k

18:35:18 ascii_field: fuck fat32

18:35:30 ascii_field: it's how we got the blkxxxx turd in the 1st place

18:35:34 ascii_field: with its 2g blobs

18:35:37 mircea_popescu: ahaha wait

18:35:42 mircea_popescu: THAT is how 2gb got picked ?

18:35:49 ascii_field: how did you think

18:35:53 decimation: I do agree that converting blkxxx to dirtree would be an improvement

18:35:54 *: mircea_popescu reels at the realisation it never occured to him before

18:36:08 mircea_popescu: i dunno dude, how the fuck should i know how people who use magic numbers pick the magic numbers to use./

19:25:56 mircea_popescu: seems coherent enough.

19:27:31 midnightmagic: So? Opinion doesn't mean action; and it doesn't follow that I'd waste my time reporting, or even communicating with an inverted totalitarianist state, given the literal costs of doing so in terms of freedom and money.

19:27:50 ag3nt_zer0: interesting - have never heard of Mirandola referred to as a core "traditionalist" writer - Guenon, Schuon, Evola, Burkhardt and others - but not Mirandola. From a nothing read I can see a similarity in their attempt to legitimize these modalities of thought but I read that his ideas were influential in renaissance humanism which guenon appears to be highly critical of... ?

19:28:10 mircea_popescu: midnightmagic you know not everyone you ever run into will like you.

19:28:27 midnightmagic: Yes, I know.

19:30:58 ascii_field: but it hardly gets deader than the thing that made him

19:31:05 ascii_field: there is none of it to be had now.

19:31:35 ag3nt_zer0: no i guess not

19:32:26 mircea_popescu: i suppose the problem here is that to the children of today the women are grandmothers, but to they that rolled them on all their sides in the hay they'll stay about 20.
