00:01:58 cazalla: mircea_popescu: i didn't find the pics save worthy tbh, curious about the stretch marks on fulloffantasies though, never seen a woman with many on her legs yet none on belly

00:02:27 cazalla: seeing that i'm not paying, didn't make sense to open my mouth while she was here

00:04:03 kyuupichan: That EBA document is good for the lulz. They're so cocksure of the advantages of fiat that they can't see the steamroller headed their way.

02:59:59 mircea_popescu: kyuupichan kinda how the shit works.

03:01:12 mircea_popescu: cazalla afaik women mostly get that around puberty and during pregnancy. maybe her thighs grew suddenly.

03:04:22 asciilifeform: http://imgur.com/umUcoSE

03:04:22 assbot: puzzle - Imgur

03:04:49 asciilifeform: ^ photo taken several hours ago at the washington 'independence day' fest. find the three interesting things.

03:05:22 punkman1: good logs today

03:06:12 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 23 @ 0.03699999 = 0.851 BTC [+] {3}

03:06:58 punkman1: asciilifeform: what's that pan under the car

03:07:15 asciilifeform: we have one winner.

03:07:23 asciilifeform: army truck leaks oil, clearly.

03:08:24 mircea_popescu: jesus

03:08:35 dignork: no license plate on army vehicle?

03:08:50 mircea_popescu: o look, the red star came back ?!

03:09:02 asciilifeform: dignork: over here they only have to have one on the boot

03:09:49 cazalla: is the windscreen broken or is that something else

03:09:59 cazalla: cracked i should say

03:10:11 asciilifeform: plastic.

03:10:28 dignork: asciilifeform have a horrible camera?

03:10:36 asciilifeform: that goes without saying

03:12:15 mircea_popescu: it's not the camera, it's the operator :D

03:13:25 dignork: HF/VHF radio?

03:13:45 asciilifeform: how'd that be interesting

03:13:49 thestringpuller: the good tjhleaga.lel,df,de,hnf.ne

03:14:20 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5295 @ 0.00081802 = 4.3314 BTC [-]

03:15:09 dignork: asciilifeform: I'd assume in the city they'd use UHF

03:15:39 asciilifeform: that thing comes with the truck. almost bought precisely this truck once, at a surplus shop - it was advertised at 700 usd.

03:16:28 dub: theres a guy in the back talking to the crackhoes

03:16:38 mircea_popescu: they';re expensiuve to upkeep tho

03:16:43 asciilifeform: aye

03:16:54 asciilifeform: prehistoric machine, for aficionados.

03:17:03 mircea_popescu: dub you know, not any poor/minority people you see are autpmatically on drugs.

03:17:21 asciilifeform: in entirely unrelated news,

03:17:22 asciilifeform: http://daserste.ndr.de/panorama/xkeyscorerules100.txt

03:17:27 dub: look at homie on he left, his mind = blown

03:17:54 mircea_popescu: he was just born thay wat

03:18:21 dub: is it actually army? googling the tag on the front doesnt bring anythign current

03:18:49 asciilifeform: dub: those aren't hoes, that's what actual gurlz look like in this town...

03:18:54 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform are these people basically running php ?

03:19:44 dignork: mircea_popescu: looks like some rule-based grammar

03:19:50 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not exactly. custom gizmo.

03:20:12 mircea_popescu: dignork designed by fucktards. all the explicit switches in the code, "these ips for fvey" "these ips for non fvey" "hey i just coded this shit one weekend"

03:20:29 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes. my point being, that it's ... basically... php.

03:21:23 asciilifeform: this was clearly written by a sysop. or a similar figure, who sits around and waits to be asked to add in case-by-case gibblets.

03:22:04 mircea_popescu: im just looking at your "these are mingblowingly smart people" thesis paper.

03:22:18 mircea_popescu: and drawing small fs all around

03:22:27 dub: probably evolved out of carnivore or earlier

03:22:32 asciilifeform: if usg employs thinking people, they did not write this.

03:23:03 asciilifeform: what, if anything, they are paid to do - remains an enigma

03:23:18 mircea_popescu: how about "they are paid to support their famblies and the american way"

03:23:29 asciilifeform: lol

03:23:45 asciilifeform: to be fair this is precisely the kind of turd i would order 'leaked' as a hangout op

03:23:51 punkman1: that looks like C++

03:23:53 dub: this smells like bs

03:24:17 dub: right at the top so there is no mistaking, the bits about how its not targetign five eyes partners

03:24:23 mircea_popescu: dub precisely.

03:24:34 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform right

03:25:04 mircea_popescu: for that matter, the crap is probably written in lisp

03:25:08 mircea_popescu: and i don't mean golang.

03:27:04 asciilifeform: this snippet is oddly reminiscent of the wretched truck

03:27:19 asciilifeform: with its chalk-marked regiment number

03:27:49 asciilifeform: leaking engine, b0rked parking brake (note the block under front wheel)

03:30:33 kakobrekla: just put it into gear?

03:31:13 asciilifeform: you'd think.

03:31:43 kakobrekla: what, gears dont work as well?

03:31:58 punkman1: irc logs from 1991: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/academic/communications/logs/Gulf-War/desert-storm/

03:31:58 assbot: Index of /pub/academic/communications/logs/Gulf-War/desert-storm/

03:32:02 mircea_popescu: ya srsly wtf is that.

03:32:08 asciilifeform: probably the 3-ring binder says 'if parking lever is b0rked, use block under wheel...'

03:32:28 mircea_popescu: the transmission of that thing is so heavy should keep it bolted down

03:32:36 mircea_popescu: hm

03:34:34 mircea_popescu: #banshee# On a lighter note. IRC record. 251 users. :)

03:34:35 mircea_popescu: lolk

03:35:39 mircea_popescu: TAILs (The Amnesic Incognito Live System) software program, a comsec mechanism advocated by extremists on extremist forums.

03:35:49 mircea_popescu: ok, so what's the tails backdoor ?

03:36:04 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it's a bog-standard 'linux live cd' with a copy of tor.

03:36:10 mircea_popescu: a so tor.

03:36:41 asciilifeform: idea being, tor for the morbidly lazy

03:36:44 mircea_popescu: and word('linux'

03:36:44 mircea_popescu: or ' USB ' or ' CD ' or 'secure desktop' or ' IRC ' or 'truecrypt' or ' tor ');

03:36:47 mircea_popescu: lol ok.

03:37:01 mircea_popescu: ' CD ' and ' IRC ' but 'truecrypt'

03:37:11 mircea_popescu: because space padding is now... half a thing

03:37:26 mircea_popescu: you telling me i just found a bug in teh code ? me ?

03:37:45 asciilifeform: ' IRC ' is to avoid matching 'mircea', lol

03:38:45 *: mircea_popescu pulls dagger from his back

03:47:34 mircea_popescu: !up aabtc

03:48:08 aabtc: :)

03:49:21 mircea_popescu: "That's great, I love your show Max Stacy, you're changing how people think and hence changing the world.

03:49:21 mircea_popescu: I'm just a young Canadian maintenance professional buying a little gold and Bitcoin every month getting ready for the market crash to happen within 5 years. Then I'll buy a nice Audi R8 from a desperate kleptocrat"

03:50:01 mircea_popescu: yeah dude, totally. an exterminator from misisiauga is going to buy an audi r8 from a "desperate kleptocrat" through the magic of max keiser's.

03:51:22 aabtc: max lost a lot of his relevance pumping shitcoins :/

03:51:36 aabtc: mircea_popescu: what happened to your twitter?

03:52:12 mircea_popescu: afaik a buncha redditards bitched at twitter which suspended it.

03:52:58 aabtc: loool

03:53:03 aabtc: over that andreas thing?

03:53:39 aabtc: hahaha 'we did it reddit!'

03:57:03 mircea_popescu: twas getting stale tbh.

12:04:08 cazalla: topkek

12:04:27 ninjashogun: lol yeah, luckily they're nice people and changed it for me rather than troll. can't imagine what would have happened in tihs channel.

12:05:06 ninjashogun: it's kind of weird how you guys have all the money, and they're the ones who are serious.

12:05:33 dub: nice password

12:05:44 chetty: actually someone did the pw thing yesterday and it was nicely pointed out they should now change their pw

12:10:30 FabianB: !up Dekker3D

12:10:39 Dekker3D: Thanks, FabianB

12:10:53 FabianB: np

12:11:09 moiety: hello all

12:11:18 moiety: quite scared to look at the logs

12:11:39 FabianB: why?

12:11:42 Dekker3D: Why are the logs scary? Strange things going bump in the night?

12:12:11 FabianB: don't think so

12:12:21 ninjashogun: who wants to make a multiple return on $30K. You're welcome to bid or ask questions. Low multiple bids likely to win. http://pastebin.com/gMF5WRuP

12:12:21 assbot: Ninjashogun prospectus - 04-07-2014 Key facts: Through Saturday, July 5, 2 - Pastebin.com

12:12:27 cazalla: today has been quiet

12:12:36 ninjashogun: cazalla, welll, here you go then :)

12:13:06 cazalla: where do i send the money?

12:13:08 ninjashogun: I mean "low-multiple bids", e.g. not something crazy like a very high number of x. However, I realize that the istuation may be seen to include some risk, so bid whatever you want.

12:13:43 ninjashogun: cazalla - we can talk about it. We can actually escrow it, you can send it straight to some of the legal services involved, when I meet with VC's (you can come!) you can pay for some of the costs, and legal review of the closing docs we're given. These are the major expenses.

12:13:59 FabianB: 1 dogecent for 20%

12:14:26 ninjashogun: Oh, no the bid is on $30K, what multpile covers your risk (and a timeframe). I can tell you more about both comapnies of course - and feel free to PM.

12:15:14 ninjashogun: For some reference, to set expectations, in the other channel (-otc) I've gotten bids on part of the money as low as 1.6x. However, the starting bid for the whole thing was something crazy.

12:17:38 Dekker3D: Could someone voice indiancandy1 again?

12:17:43 Dekker3D: She's the same one from last time.

12:19:06 Dekker3D: FabianB, could you voice her?

12:19:34 cazalla: !up indiancandy1

12:19:45 Dekker3D: As far as I know, mircea's "anyway, drop your address" means that she should put her bitcoin address in here, anywhere. I'd write it for her, but it's more trustworthy if I just vouch for her and she writes it

12:23:45 indiancandy1: 1C2GHDcNxzZfnVBD9EyY95WPuhXtatJDfa

12:26:39 Dekker3D: By the way, if I may ask: is the whole "0.1 btc for a pic of tits" thing like a promotional stunt to get hot chicks in here, or is it just what it says it is?

12:28:46 chetty: Dekker3D, I think only MP can answer about the true purpose of what he does

12:29:18 FabianB: Dekker3D: maybe reading http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-07-2014#744652 helps

12:29:19 assbot: #bitcoin-assets log

12:30:00 indiancandy1: yh

12:30:08 indiancandy1: ask chetty

12:30:09 indiancandy1: shes chool

12:30:35 Dekker3D: Ah. She knows more about mircea's shenanigans then?

12:31:36 chetty: ninjashogun, I cant see why anyone would put money into "Both businesses are stealth, however a bit can be discussed publicly:"

12:31:52 FabianB: asciilifeform: did you have a look at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/mycelium-entropy ?

12:31:52 assbot: Mycelium Entropy | Indiegogo

12:35:27 punkman: !up ninjashogun

12:35:56 Dekker3D: It seems I can register on the web of trust using a bitcoin address instead of a gpg key?

12:36:03 FabianB: yes

12:36:28 Dekker3D: How would I do that? Do I need to extract my private key from my wallet to sign something? because I'm using Mycelium.

12:36:29 FabianB: if you have bitcoin-qt for example and can sign with the address

12:36:35 Dekker3D: Ah.

12:36:47 FabianB: dunno mycelium

12:36:59 Dekker3D: It doesn't do message signing

12:37:18 Dekker3D: But at least I suppose it can make things easier for indiancandy1. She has a blockchain.info wallet

12:37:53 cazalla: are you her pimp or something?

12:38:00 Dekker3D: I'm her tech dude

12:38:04 ninjashogun: thanks. They're both high-tech startups, albeit of two different kinds. The public pastebin doesn't include too much informatoin but of course I expect you to learn about both. They're both just doing their seed rounds now - the first acutaly already has assigned IP, etc, and has developed (the basics of) interesting technology. As it's hardware, it's quite hard to seed and we need to keep vigilant about stealth but I c

12:38:04 ninjashogun: an tell a bit more to anyone who's interested.

12:38:06 Dekker3D: Here on the internet, the difference is tiny :P

12:38:40 ninjashogun: The second one is in a really huge market - even before it had a NAME it had offers at high six-figure valuations, however I wanted to be able to pursue both of them.

12:39:02 ninjashogun: The second is a services / consulting company in the field of jobs. cf. hired.com

12:39:11 Dekker3D: She'll need to exchange bitcoin for gbp at some point, which would likely require #bitcoin-otc. Which requires registration in the web of trust, afaik. And if she wants to earn more with shenanigans, as this other girl did, then she'll also likely need to be in the web of trust.

12:39:22 Dekker3D: So I'm trying to find an easy way to get her into the web of trust.

12:39:22 cazalla: ninjashogun: can you call me to discuss further?

12:39:41 ninjashogun: cazalla - yes, absolutely. For cost reasons we could start by skype first. (You'll also see the name of one!)

12:40:00 ninjashogun: PM me your skype name and we can talk in 5 min.

12:40:15 cazalla: i don't have skype but i have a landline for you to call

12:40:45 FabianB: !up Dekker3D

12:40:49 ninjashogun: cazalla, have you ever invested in anyone/anything? if we proceeded, would you be able to give a reference?

12:41:16 ninjashogun: (Assuming you became interested.)

12:41:30 cazalla: ever heard of a lil company named labcoin?

12:42:10 ninjashogun: I have now. Google results don't look great :-D :-D

12:42:11 FabianB: Dekker3D: gpg is probably easier if you're not already using bitcoin-qt

12:42:18 ninjashogun: Check Google :-D

12:42:22 cazalla: if you're unable to afford to call me i'll assume you're not a serious player

12:42:32 ninjashogun: I didn't need a reference now.

12:42:39 Dekker3D: True.

12:42:40 ninjashogun: I was just asking if you would be able to furnish one.

12:42:47 ninjashogun: assuming you became interested.

12:43:01 ninjashogun: If this would be the first time you invested in anything/anyone then we might still proceed but I'd like to know this ahead of time.

12:43:22 cazalla: my money is no good?

12:44:13 ninjashogun: cazalla - the issue is, I don't know. You could waste weeks of my time. (It's happened before - that's post-closing documents. meaning, everything has been agreed and closed.)

12:44:40 ninjashogun: cazalla, I might still be able to work with you. Maybe if this would be a first investment for you, you can team up with someone from here and do it together.

12:45:10 cazalla: i'm gonna need that phone call before we proceed

12:45:13 ninjashogun: cazalla, I have a lot going on including raising this bridge from my exisitng network and VC network.

12:45:35 ninjashogun: cazalla, OK. PM me your number, I'll call you soon.

12:46:21 cazalla: 61+ 02 6131 3000

12:53:16 ninjashogun: chetty - money is easy. Finding people who are interested in building something together and have the connections to help is harder.

12:53:52 chetty: if I want to give money without refs there are plenty of beggars on the street corner

12:54:12 ninjashogun: chetty - yes, I agree. If you want to give money but have no references, they're the only ones who will take it from you.

12:54:46 ninjashogun: cazalla - btw the above - linking "Contact - Australian Federal Police" - is exactly why I call this channel useless trolls. It takes about 15 seconds of talking with me to determine who I am and what I'm doing.

12:56:56 FabianB: indiancandy1: and of course use a different password

12:57:06 ninjashogun: chetty - I will also say this. How come VC's (venture capitalists) don't get scammed - when they write six, and seven-figure checks? If you Google "vc's scammed":

12:57:08 ninjashogun: https://www.google.com/search?q=vc+firm+scammed

12:57:09 assbot: vc firm scammed - Google Search

12:57:29 indiancandy1: where and who

12:57:29 ninjashogun: you get only stories about founders (like me) being the ones to get scammed by the people who supposedly hvae the money. Why is that? Because due dilligence is actually quite easy to perform.

12:57:31 indiancandy1: is nickserv

12:57:34 indiancandy1: where i find out

12:57:37 FabianB: indiancandy1: you can start a pm with nickserv by /query NickServ

12:57:48 indiancandy1: where is he

12:57:53 indiancandy1: lol

12:57:54 ninjashogun: nickserv is just an automated system, you send it messages via "/msg nickserv"

12:57:56 indiancandy1: ths is joke

12:58:09 indiancandy1: so i type it

12:58:11 indiancandy1: in here

12:58:20 ninjashogun: indiancandy1, go to #freenode for help

12:58:30 ninjashogun: they will help you

12:59:15 indiancandy1: so i type that here

12:59:19 indiancandy1: and it wil take me there

12:59:20 indiancandy1: ?

12:59:29 FabianB: indiancandy1: type "/query nickserv" wherever

12:59:47 FabianB: indiancandy1: you'll be in a tab with nickserv where you can procede with registering

12:59:51 chetty: ninjashogun, I dont think VC lets it make the news when they get scammed ...they get even

13:00:21 ninjashogun: chetty - no, it just doesn't happen. I know VC's. I know founders. Scams just don't happen after you do due dilligence.

13:00:59 ninjashogun: chetty, why do you think I have to spend my own money to get six-figure investments from them? Couldn't I just send a prospectus and have them wire some cash? It doesn't work like that. You need to do a TON and have a ton of meetings with them, sohw them EVERYTHING in minute detail.

13:03:12 ninjashogun: You absolutely can talk in absolutes.

15:50:43 Dekker3D: "white knighting". Ow, right in the ego. But, I'm legally considered to be handicapped so I don't really have a job.

15:51:00 Dekker3D: It's a psychological thing where I quite literally can't get started on certain types of stuff.

15:51:29 Dekker3D: Not without some outside help, anyway. It's going to be difficult to have an actual job with that.

15:53:23 mircea_popescu: punkman yes.

15:53:32 Dekker3D: A psychologist and a neurologist agreed that I won't be able to find a job because of that psychological thing. So, they declared me "unfit for work".

15:53:36 Dekker3D: Hard to translate.

15:54:08 mircea_popescu: Dekker3D not that hard. let's see here.

15:54:12 Dekker3D: I get 70% of minimum wage. If I take up a job, it fills in the reminaining 30% until I get more than 100% minimum wage, at which point the ... allowance thing drops away

16:04:05 Dekker3D: mircea_popescu, I've read almost all of it by now. The main distinction here is that SSI is assumed to be poor people who receive money because otherwise they'd riot, and SSDI is assumed to be people who have worked and who simply can't anymore.

16:04:18 mircea_popescu: "The Post is making a bet that you won't know the difference between SSDI and SSI, and you wouldn't, no one does, it's deliberately obfuscated and frequently conflated. They are totally different in terms of origin, budget and consequence, but both rely on "disability." The only person who does know the difference is a guy actually on SSDI, so that when you ask him, "how long have you been on SSI?" he will freeze, pu

16:04:18 mircea_popescu: ll out a knife, place it calmly on the table, and say, "listen lung transplant, I'm not on SSI, I'm on SSDI. I worked.""

16:05:43 Dekker3D: mircea_popescu, I've actually met someone quite like you before.

16:07:16 Dekker3D: While I was working on yet another one of my projects. It failed like so many others.

16:07:22 mircea_popescu: complexity creates plausible deniability, generally.

16:07:28 Dekker3D: Anyway, he got the impression that I'm pretty damn good at what I do

16:07:30 Dekker3D: brb.

16:07:45 mircea_popescu: i still don't know what that is.

16:08:21 Dekker3D: Back.

16:09:00 Dekker3D: Well, there was an MMORPG that I liked. Extremely casual, simple looking and the game itself was pretty stupid, but the community was pretty awesome.

16:09:12 mircea_popescu: called ?

16:09:13 Dekker3D: There had been 6 attempts at making an unofficial remake already.

16:09:15 Dekker3D: Blade Mistress.

16:09:23 mircea_popescu: o i recall this shit lol

16:09:26 Dekker3D: Heh.

16:09:28 mircea_popescu: god it was awful :D

16:09:28 Dekker3D: Are you BMG?

16:09:33 mircea_popescu: no idea bout the community

16:11:10 chetty: good god MP, kid has been sold a bill of goods on being uselss. :(

16:11:12 Dekker3D: But one team member started becoming more of a burden than a boon, and he was an old friend so I found it hard to cut him loose. We also lacked programmers, as I was spending too much time just managing stuff.

16:11:20 mircea_popescu: chetty almost seems that way dunnit.

16:11:25 Dekker3D: Me?

16:11:26 Dekker3D: What?

16:12:35 mircea_popescu: an' you bought it.

16:13:29 Dekker3D: Heh. Okay. I still can't quite tell whether you're saying "aw, poor kid, he got handed a bad hand" or "damn kid, go make yourself useful". Knowing your type a tiny bit, I'm guessing the latter.

16:13:36 mircea_popescu: im not saying either.

16:13:48 Dekker3D: So what are you saying?

16:14:04 mircea_popescu: that it looks like has a point.

16:14:14 Dekker3D: Like.. who has a point?

16:14:49 mircea_popescu: "i still don;t know what the idea is!"

16:14:52 Dekker3D: I honestly have no idea what the "bill of goods" means in this context

16:14:59 Dekker3D: I am trying to get that information out of one of you

16:15:04 mircea_popescu: right.

16:15:05 Dekker3D: Heh.

16:15:32 mircea_popescu: let's try it with women. it always works easier with women.

16:15:36 mircea_popescu: like they're lubricated or something.

16:15:59 Dekker3D: I suppose

16:16:13 mircea_popescu: she's curious like any kid. so she... actually let me get it, i have a reference.

16:16:14 chetty: ok its just a idiomatic saying, basically I was saying that you had been tricked into believing you were useless

16:16:22 Dekker3D: Ah.

16:16:46 Dekker3D: Well yeah. I have. I know I have skills and can get stuff done, but so many things around me have fallen apart that I can't help but blame myself at some level.

16:19:29 Dekker3D: Yeah.

16:20:27 mircea_popescu: basically, the boxen that are people... not many know what's inside, and especially not the people in question.

16:20:58 chetty: sooo back to the question, do you code? what language and all that Dekker3D

16:21:11 Dekker3D: C++, some Java and C#

16:21:25 mircea_popescu: cool.

16:21:27 Dekker3D: I've been doing a tiny bit of Python lately, though I absolutely loathe everything about it.

16:21:33 mircea_popescu: why ?

16:22:47 Dekker3D: It lacks curly braces and instead uses indentation. That's the main thing I hate.

16:23:17 mircea_popescu: i think most everyone here loves python and loathes perl

16:23:32 mircea_popescu: except for the weirdo frenchies into ruby and other appalling shit.

16:23:44 Dekker3D: you can't visually tell the difference between spaces and tabs, in sufficient amounts, and it complains if you use tabs in a piece of code that uses spaces elsewhere. For obvious reasons, but some people use tabs and some use spaces.

16:24:10 mircea_popescu: well python is trying its best to be like lisp

16:24:16 Dekker3D: It's interpreted and weakly typed, afaik. You can even add stuff to classes on the fly. That allows a lack of structure

16:24:16 mircea_popescu: and that means copying all the idiocy.

16:24:20 Dekker3D: Meh.

16:24:34 Dekker3D: I haven't even tried perl. It looks like line noise, but we all know that.

16:24:35 benkay: <moiety> hey my benkay has rearry improved! // your which now?

16:25:10 Dekker3D: Anyway, I studied the Bitcoin code a bit to see how the bloom filter is implemented.

16:25:18 mircea_popescu: artifexd one day we shall have to make a wot backed tech map

16:25:28 mircea_popescu: who's with who. then just see what techs get the best votes

16:25:39 Dekker3D: chetty, I used to be Windows/Linux, but then EUFI happened and my old mobo got fried. Haven't been able to reinstall Linux since.

16:25:53 mircea_popescu: just you know, put up a page, with 20 questions or so. have people verify a string in here to allow their results.

16:25:54 artifexd: With kakobrekla in the python camp, that's probably an automatic win.

16:25:56 mircea_popescu: and then graph it

16:25:59 Dekker3D: And I stopped bothering. Now I found some possible hint on how to get it to work, but can hardly be arsed.

16:26:05 mircea_popescu: no because you only use the graph.

16:26:18 mircea_popescu: not the values, just the graph, like google pr works.

The buyer has a secret code to keep to himself. Once you have the money, you can text/release funds from web at which point you receive the buyer's secret code, which you can show him as confirmation that the funds were released.

21:45:37 Dekker3D: Myeah..

21:45:43 mircea_popescu: the rational approach is to stay where you got the nibble, not to leave.

21:45:48 Dekker3D: Heh. I was just starting to catch on to that. I'm slow

21:46:03 Dekker3D: Well, often when there's something juicy to nibble, you've got to watch out for the hook.

21:46:07 Dekker3D: But then again, we're not fish

21:46:08 mircea_popescu: exactly.

21:54:15 assbot: Get Educated About Homosexuality - YouTube

21:54:51 mircea_popescu: so the argument towards homosexuality not being subjective is that well, twins are both homosexual in 70% of cases (unaudited, just what it claims) which then they compare with "being left handed".

21:54:52 Dekker3D: "christian" thinks homosexuality is a choice. Yep. This is starting perfectly.

21:55:01 mircea_popescu: except... being left handed is not a behaviour. homosexuality is.

21:55:12 mircea_popescu: if one of two twins eats at mcdonalds, 90% odds are the other does too.

21:55:18 mircea_popescu: so mcdonalds is thus genetic ?

21:55:41 mircea_popescu: no, it's just pervasive cultural norm. behaviours spread from trusted sources, and a twin has better thances than a guy on youtube to persuade.

21:56:10 Dekker3D: Well, if it were a choice.. why wouldn't everyone choose to be bisexual? More options!

21:56:23 chetty: left handiness can be cured, just ask the nuns with rulers

21:56:38 mircea_popescu: oddly enough, this is supported by practice. slavegirls are bisexual.

21:56:40 Dekker3D: That's sarcastic, right?

21:56:46 Dekker3D: Heh.

21:56:49 mircea_popescu: Dekker3D no, it actually can be cured. it's just painful.

21:57:18 mircea_popescu: but anyway, let me in passing register my displeasure with "scientists have". is it so fucking hard to say " McGee and Jonk have " ?

21:58:02 chetty: but consensus is a new law in science, hadnt you heard?

21:58:11 mircea_popescu: yeah right.,

21:58:22 mircea_popescu: anyway this female antibody theory has got to be the laugh of all time

21:58:45 Dekker3D: Yeah, the antibody thing looked silly

21:58:53 mircea_popescu: chetty get a load of this : female body perceives male foetus as foreign, and generates unspecified "antibodies". the more boys a woman has, the more adept she is at this

21:59:02 mircea_popescu: and so the more she "feminizes" the fetus. intrauterine-ly.

21:59:18 chetty: omg, thats ridiculous

21:59:37 mircea_popescu: nothing to do with sexualisation pressures among groups of boys, or anything.

21:59:56 mircea_popescu: here's a simple solution : in any large population of males, some will be gay because the other want something to fuck.

21:59:59 mircea_popescu: someTHING to fuck.

22:00:01 mircea_popescu: problem solved.

22:00:27 chetty: well since women have fewer children these days the number of gays should be going down if this is true, pretty easy to check :P

22:00:31 mircea_popescu: definitely works a lot better to explain prison homosexuality, unless prison buildings ALSO secrete hormones.

22:00:52 mircea_popescu: chetty funny how many ways there are to show broken "scientists agree" is broken.

22:01:17 chetty: if it wasn't so easy it would be fun

22:01:18 test532451243214: "scientists agree" is pretty useless if you can't link to actual results

22:01:46 test532451243214: I mean.. two rocket scientists could agree that homosexuality is or isn't a choice.

22:01:55 test532451243214: Scientists would be agreeing, but it would prove absolutely nothing :P

22:01:55 mircea_popescu: test532451243214 even more useless if those "scientists" are people being paid a salary by a government, as an idle exercise in trying to create jerbs.

22:01:59 test532451243214: Whoops

22:02:09 Dekker3D: Wanted to find out some nickserv stuff

22:02:27 Dekker3D: I suppose so.

22:02:53 Dekker3D: "creating jobs" seems like the wrong goal anyway. More and more jobs are being replaced by robots. We should be focusing on a society that can handle mass automation

22:03:08 mircea_popescu: that society is selective.

22:03:15 Dekker3D: Oh?

22:03:24 mircea_popescu: democratic structures wish to promote inclusive societies.

22:03:29 mircea_popescu: there's no solution to this problem.

22:03:37 chetty: buggy makers found ways

22:03:56 mircea_popescu: chetty automotive society is inclusive. that part was easy.

22:03:58 Dekker3D: Ah. You're saying that those who aren't smart enough to be irreplacable would always find themselves left out, in a world where automation runs rampant?

22:04:08 mircea_popescu: chetty the idea was "everyone a car" see ?

22:04:15 mircea_popescu: Dekker3D exactly.

22:04:23 chetty: everyone a robot :P

22:04:24 mircea_popescu: selective. must be this tall to ride.

22:04:27 mircea_popescu: inclusive. everyone's invited.

22:04:51 mircea_popescu: the wild west was selective.

22:04:57 mircea_popescu: and guess what ? it fucking selected to all hell.

22:06:49 Dekker3D: So we're going to have to find a way to live with it, I'd guess.

22:06:52 mircea_popescu: everything always "threatens to destroy us all"

22:08:10 Dekker3D: People always say things threaten to destroy us all. And yeah, it's a favoured tool of anyone trying to convince the masses.

22:08:34 Dekker3D: But people actually believe the CO2 thing because it makes some sense. People aren't similarly convinced that robots will fuck up our lives.

22:09:03 Dekker3D: The same argument applies to bitcoin: nobody really believes it'll kill off half of humanity if left unchecked.

22:09:18 mircea_popescu: people were similarly convicned the 2k year bug was going to destroy us all

22:09:20 Dekker3D: So people don't put in an organized, honest attempt to stop it

22:09:23 mircea_popescu: and more recently, a day in may 2012.

22:09:43 mircea_popescu: but yes, bitcoin will definitely kil off half of humanity.

22:09:49 mircea_popescu: that half is mostly english speaking currently.

22:36:52 mircea_popescu: and they don't think they will in any case.

23:26:30 thestringpuller: you can pay off a miner in about 140 days (given consistent difficulty increases and no extra capital investment)...

23:26:49 Dekker3D: High price = lots of miners buying equipment = lots of hashrate; low price after that = lots of miners who can't afford to run their equipment = lowering hashrate

23:32:17 thestringpuller: Dekker3D: "equal opportunity" << this isn't socialism...

23:32:28 kakobrekla: weird. i cant even produce that sign with my keyboard.

23:32:31 thestringpuller: hustle for the fruits of your labor

23:32:37 Dekker3D: True, but it beats having a worse opportunity than the rest.

23:32:38 thestringpuller: ```````````````

23:32:49 thestringpuller: why because of "fairness"?

23:33:13 thestringpuller: that's knocking the hustle because you can't make the same connections other people make...

23:33:15 Dekker3D: If I can choose between having the same opportunities as everyone else, or being behind a group of others, I'll choose having the same opportunities

23:33:20 Dekker3D: Hence why I mined Scrypt, not SHA

23:33:31 nubbins`: kakobrekla, it's shift-` for me

23:33:55 kakobrekla: no, i know where it is suppose to be, i just have it remapped.

23:33:57 Dekker3D: I have no connections in ASIC producing companies, no. Making connections has always been one of my weaker points.

23:34:00 nubbins`: o

23:34:07 indiancandy1: dekker

23:34:11 indiancandy1: congz

23:34:14 indiancandy1: holland are through

23:34:18 indiancandy1: in the world cup

23:34:28 Dekker3D: Neat.

23:34:44 indiancandy1: yh

23:34:47 Dekker3D: One more team to beat and they're the world champion for the first time in.. 4 decades or so? I don't really even keep track of football.

23:34:54 thestringpuller: Dekker3D: that's cause you aren't chinese and have access to workers who will fab chips for < $2 / hr

23:35:03 thestringpuller: and don't have*

23:36:30 Dekker3D: Yep

23:36:38 thestringpuller: but as well Dekker3D people have found away around the memory wall on SCRYPT and alas are producing parallelized chips for that algo...

23:36:47 Dekker3D: I know

23:36:50 thestringpuller: are they not entitlted to their hustle?

23:36:53 thestringpuller: their hardwork?

23:36:55 indiancandy1: HUP HUP HOLLAND !!

23:36:57 Dekker3D: I used to mine Scrypt. I don't anymore

23:37:19 Dekker3D: I'm not saying they're not. I'm just saying I'm getting the fuck out, and mining something that hasn't been ASIC'd yet

23:37:46 thestringpuller: haha I'm trying to find a way around that, hustle with the asics

23:37:46 Dekker3D: ... Well, as soon as I get around to replacing a water pump. I did some silly things in setting up my mining rig. It wasn't all that serious anyway.

23:38:02 Dekker3D: Cool. If you find a way and don't mind sharing, I'd love to hear about it

23:38:28 thestringpuller: i dunno how mature the market is: people liek lunaminer and petaminer are making it a bit...difficult

23:38:30 Dekker3D: But until then, I'm going with GPU/CPU-only coins over ASIC-minable coins.

23:38:35 thestringpuller: like the days of GIGAMINING

23:39:01 Dekker3D: Hm. You were planning to actually make connections, targetting a specific company?

23:39:08 thestringpuller: seems within mining infrastructure there is always a scam on some level...

23:39:21 kakobrekla: <thestringpuller> are they not entitlted to their hustle? < no., cause http://bash.bitcoin-assets.com/?quote=194

23:39:21 assbot: #bitcoin-assets bash

23:39:53 thestringpuller: point taken kako ~_~

23:40:08 thestringpuller: when you're hustlin' to scam, it ain't really hustling now is it?

23:40:13 Dekker3D: Yep, thestringpuller

23:40:21 Dekker3D: Always some scam

23:41:45 mircea_popescu: <kakobrekla> you get ticks there. << i think you only get ticks if does live thre.

23:42:14 kakobrekla: not by my experience.

23:43:57 mircea_popescu: i don't think i ever had a tick

23:45:11 kakobrekla: luck you

23:45:16 kakobrekla: maybe you just dont go out much.

23:45:26 benkay: internet is so slow at the mountain home that the camgirl imgur galleries take too long to load

23:46:03 benkay: loving the bittits tho

23:46:53 assbot: Bitcoin assets - Imgur

23:47:11 kakobrekla: close it before she downloads it all.

23:50:46 thestringpuller: there is a bittits.us?

23:52:41 mircea_popescu: Dekker3D> I'm not saying they're not. I'm just saying I'm getting the fuck out, and mining something that hasn't been ASIC'd yet << this is like saying you'll farm a product that's not globalized yet.

23:52:42 mircea_popescu: glwt.

23:52:55 mircea_popescu: the only reason it's not been globalised is that it sucks.

23:53:44 mircea_popescu: <thestringpuller> seems within mining infrastructure there is always a scam on some level... << quite.

23:53:58 Dekker3D: Or because it takes a while to develop ASICs and would only be started when it looks profitable enough?

23:54:16 mircea_popescu: which means...

23:55:20 Dekker3D: That you can use the gpu you already have to make a bit of profit mining some new algorithm before ASICs show up

23:55:34 thestringpuller: dogecoin anyone?

23:55:38 Dekker3D: And when ASICs show up, you can just go to the next big thing.

23:55:39 *: mircea_popescu shrugs

23:56:13 Dekker3D: Litecoin was before Dogecoin. Dunno about other Scrypt altcoins before that

23:56:34 Dekker3D: Darkcoin attempts to do the same thing again, though I know another altcoin had the same algorithm earlier

23:56:37 benkay: turtles turtling turtles turtling turtles all the way into the future

23:56:58 benkay: who the fuck makes money mining when the fiat govts are willing to print to do it

23:57:12 benkay: its like people can't fn in2 mafs or somethign

23:57:19 mircea_popescu: benkay word.

23:57:34 benkay: arghag

23:57:40 benkay: ragequits are cheap at the cabin

23:57:47 benkay: there's girls and booze n shits

23:57:50 *: benkay ragequits

23:57:53 mircea_popescu: got a hard cock and some time to kill, what diff does it make it's all in a cage ?

23:57:58 mircea_popescu: kids gonna have fun

23:57:59 thestringpuller: girl*** ftfy

23:58:22 benkay: hey my imagination counts

23:58:47 benkay: despite all my rage, i am still just a derp in a cage

23:59:11 mircea_popescu: 'Yes! I have!' Ruska groaned in agony, lying on his back tightly clutching the pillow to him. He breathed into it, and the pillow returned the warmth of his own youth, condemned to spend itself in the bitter sterility of bringing to a white heat his young, caged body which begged for release and found none. He wanted to believe that he had a girl, but he had nothing at all to go on - not even a kiss, or a promise. Ther

23:59:11 mircea_popescu: e had been nothing more than a look of sympathy on a girl's face as she had listened to him, earlier that evening, telling his story. And for the first time, seeing himself mirrored in the girl's eyes, Ruska felt there was something heroic and out of the ordinary about his life. There was nothing between them yet, but he felt something had happened that gave him the right to say he had a girl.

23:59:13 Dekker3D: !up indiancandy1

23:59:14 mircea_popescu: 'Who is she?' Gleb asked.

23:59:16 mircea_popescu: Raising the blanket just a little Ruska answered from the darkness: 'Shhh - Clara-'

23:59:18 mircea_popescu: 'Clara? The prosecutor's daughter?'
