00:00:40 assbot: Logged on 04-07-2015 16:41:04; asciilifeform: ;;later tell kakobrekla my current understanding of the ph0rk situation is that your hypothesis re: miners being dumb as bricks is essentially correct...

00:01:03 mircea_popescu: because yes, we're fucktarded enough to not notice what's proposed here is a closed f2pool - antpool loop. they're over there in their own parallel universe.

00:01:17 mircea_popescu: i dunno when it became fashionable to be infantile, but i'm getting pretty sick of it.

00:02:39 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-07-2015#1187220 << so are they :D

00:06:24 mircea_popescu: "Note that the roughly 50% of the network that was SPV mining had explicitly indicated that they would enforce the BIP66 rules. By not doing so, several large miners have lost over $50,000 dollars worth of mining income so far."

00:06:36 mircea_popescu: leaving aside the inept spin they published, why the fuck are we pricing things in dollars.

00:06:38 shinohai: I finally got it set up correctly this evening, it pays to look at things when you aren't fantastically drunk

00:06:44 mircea_popescu: have the decency to use zimbabwe pula or something

00:13:25 mircea_popescu: bout 35

00:14:02 williamdunne: Oh that makes sense.

00:14:08 williamdunne: Lovely potato monument celebrating it

00:14:29 mircea_popescu: huh ?

00:15:07 shinohai: >mfw I see a guy named "popescu" on the fbi wanted list.

00:15:36 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185320 << incidentally, twelve generations of peasants died in a pool of their own blood to get ownership over the fucking tools, as a precursor to over the land and eventually their life.

00:15:37 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 17:45:53; pete_dushenski: punkman: ah yes, how farmers don't own the tools of their trade. sad story, that.

00:15:48 mircea_popescu: these idiots gave it all back because they gotta be jwz.

00:16:25 mircea_popescu: no place on earth was ever such an openm insult to the human spirit as north america is these days.

00:16:31 mircea_popescu: except, perhaps, for africa. again.

00:17:24 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185329 << except cheaper to adapt the yard to the robot, as in all examination markets. so you get those round cultivated fields with a pillar in middle etc.

00:17:24 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 17:48:44; decimation: actually I would pay good money for a robot that could wonder through a yard and pull weeds

00:19:56 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185391 << they were, after all, jews

00:19:56 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 17:57:51; ascii_field: this is amply described in the literature

00:21:05 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185395 << ceausescu did exactly this. if police found you oin the street and you had no place of employment, you'd get a beating and get force-sent to either vocational prison-school if underage or work camp if overage.

00:21:05 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 17:58:57; trinque: pete_dushenski: I had this notion regarding the bums all over portland, that someone should take them to nearby farms for day labor in exchange for meals, showers, and somewhere to be warehoused at night.

00:21:37 mircea_popescu: this horrible trampling of rightrs and liberties resulted in a romania with absolutely no bums, and moreover, in the anedcodtic situation where i picked up a cab from the train station

00:21:45 mircea_popescu: and the cab driver was looking at this bum laying down

00:22:06 mircea_popescu: and he told me that he was an orphan, and that he got put by the commieus through the above grinder, and now he has a family and owns his car.

00:22:15 mircea_popescu: and i agree it's a pity nobody cares enough to beat up that bum.

00:22:19 mircea_popescu: so there we go.

00:23:01 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185400 << he got you there you know.

00:23:01 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 18:00:02; pete_dushenski: ascii_field: you buying a case of z80s or pogos is reallocating capital

00:23:35 mircea_popescu: even not counting the nsa etc ; pogo is a capital good.

00:24:01 mircea_popescu: !up ascii_modem

00:24:52 ascii_modem: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=05-07-2015#1187759 << mno, capital (tm) shits money

00:24:52 assbot: Logged on 05-07-2015 00:23:01; mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185400 << he got you there you know.

00:25:00 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185407 << plox to review the original discussion on the original list. http://fraudsters.com/2013/digging-through-archives-yields-gold/#selection-113.0-113.416

00:25:00 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 18:04:12; funkenstein_: only in so much as farmers and homeowners accept their counterfeits

00:25:01 assbot: Digging through archives yields gold on fraudsters - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( http://bit.ly/1NEBNpS )

00:25:14 mircea_popescu: ascii_modem you're not going to redefine terms of art now, are you ?

00:25:33 ascii_modem: iirc classic sense ?

00:25:47 ascii_modem: i.e. my pants arent capital

00:25:47 mircea_popescu: capital goods produce value. all there is to them.

00:25:58 mircea_popescu: pogo is not your pants.

00:26:31 mircea_popescu: as much as running your own server is controlling a capital good. not a very significant one, but that's a quantitative discussion

00:27:14 mircea_popescu: arguably intelligence is similarly of a capital good, and you have enough control of it to, for instance, contribute here. other people do not have this luxury - for instance because they agreed some employer owns it all.

00:27:17 mircea_popescu: so... no.

00:27:26 ascii_modem: sorta like gravity. yes, sufficiently far from solar system, anyone can become a 'stellar body' if you shove him out airlock

00:27:52 mircea_popescu: i thought you reasoned in categories.

00:28:00 ascii_modem: aha

00:28:02 mircea_popescu: what's this "quantity is the determinator of quality" approach then ?

00:28:43 ascii_modem: original thread was re 'who is wageslave and who - capitalist'

00:28:47 mircea_popescu: see ag3nt_zero, syllogism. reductio ad absurdum. present the op with a dilemma, so he can either explain what was misunderstood or correct what he misunderstood

00:28:59 mircea_popescu: well sure, original thread.

00:30:56 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185411 << they aren't always performing. most of them can't perform worth a shit. nevertheless, the sexual exploitation of women is an important element of mental health, including for the women in question, for women in general, for men in general...

00:30:56 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 18:06:43; mats: BingoBoingo: 'There's no regulation', '... and it's really difficult to believe that the girls who were crying when they're being "raped" are always acting and performing'

00:31:03 mircea_popescu: so i fully expect this to get "regulated".

00:33:27 ascii_modem: pogo & the other junk is in different category than 'capital proper' in my mind because none of this stuff 'pays for itself'

00:33:27 ascii_modem: as, e.g., fisherman's boat does

00:33:38 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185445 << to hear him say it, he's like that beat up chimp in the experiments

00:33:38 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 18:14:11; ascii_field: what family i've left is in it too

00:33:52 mircea_popescu: ascii_modem so far seemingly phuctor does ?

00:34:52 ascii_modem: it's a pet, apparently

00:35:42 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185497 << what's the job mostly, looking at deep frozen pork bellies ?

00:35:42 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 18:25:12; pete_dushenski: public health inspector :)

00:36:11 ascii_modem: for those who don't know - mircea_popescu contributed the bix phuctor runs on

00:36:27 ascii_modem: box

00:36:29 mircea_popescu: comes out of nsa accts tho. eventually.

00:36:34 ascii_modem: aha

00:36:48 ascii_modem: so not clear how 'pays for self'

00:36:55 mircea_popescu: thus ?

00:37:07 ascii_modem: rather, running on battery like other things

00:37:52 mircea_popescu: take the other side. i approved expenditure of ~7.5 btc on advertising as ceo of s.mg ; and of ~.25 (unreported, maybe next month i remember to put it in) on s.nsa.

00:38:00 mircea_popescu: the roi for the first was 0, the roi for the 2nd not 0.

00:38:05 mircea_popescu: how then, not "pay for self" ?

00:40:30 ascii_modem: in other nyuz, i'm sitting under the megaphallus in washington, and blinking eye of sauron

00:40:52 mircea_popescu: send our most heartfelt regards

00:41:36 ascii_modem: traditional holiday here. and there is a spybot in the cloud. which is lulzy because there is a huge sign, 'no smoking'-style, with crossed-out chopper

00:41:45 ascii_modem: 'no droning'

00:47:56 mircea_popescu: eh, these hirign someone to work on things deals never work out.

00:48:55 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185643 << this works ?

00:50:34 punkman: all that scrolling takes a toll

00:50:54 mats: probably.

00:51:00 ascii_modem: ditto

00:51:13 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185658 << this is not merely a difference of workflow, but a difference of philosophy. we are not interested in automation, we are interested in review and responsibility. the only concern that thing is adressing is that we find a critical bug tomorrow, i want to know who to negrate.

00:51:13 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 19:51:29; phf: mod6: sorry, i wasn't really prepared to explain what i mean, i thought you would just grok the request as an obvious one. we probably just have very different workflows

00:51:28 ascii_modem: if you have megatonne of code, yerdoingitwrong

00:51:52 ascii_modem: i don't even care what domain

00:52:02 punkman: I've never even learned to touchtype properly

00:52:06 mircea_popescu: this follows in the wake of a few threads mostly brought to a head by the opnessl idiocies you might wish to review phf if you've not seen them before.

00:52:19 ascii_modem: me neither

00:52:24 mircea_popescu: ascii_modem harem, actually. "if you have a ton of babes, doing it wrong"

00:52:27 mircea_popescu: (truth!)

00:52:36 punkman: ascii_modem, oh good, thought it was just me

00:52:45 mircea_popescu: i don't touch type either, not usually.

00:53:09 williamdunne: How comes?

00:53:09 ascii_modem: now i dont look at the buttonz, no

00:53:10 mircea_popescu: touch typing is good if you're going to do straight typing for mintues at a time. i normally do not. i suppose you do not either, need a mouse, a this, a buffer, a that etc.

00:53:40 mircea_popescu: most of the benefit of touch typing comes from not moving your "frame" above the kbd.

00:53:57 mircea_popescu: hands on/hands off touch typing is nonsense.

00:54:39 mircea_popescu: ascii_modem that's how i end up with stuff like ;; and xse in my history file :D

00:55:33 williamdunne: The main issue I have with touch typing is occasionally my fingers landing in the wrong order or similar derpery

00:56:40 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185688 << either that on a website-y thing or have an option for a new subscriber to get whole shebang ?

18:18:23 mod6: gernika: it makes sense that you can not dump 168`001. keep it posted at that url for a few days. I wanna see if I can replicate with obsd on my side (as soon as I can get it built statically), or when I free up my aws environment from its current sync process (if that should come first). I can use the aws one to cut out block 168`000 and compare the two.

18:18:48 mod6: Maybe try to make sense of it somehow.

19:38:09 decimation: jurov: why hate ac?

19:38:44 mircea_popescu: i bet you it's because all he had were cheapo units that always demoisturize to a certain % as result of their function, rather than actually CONDITION the air

19:38:50 mircea_popescu: ie, put it out at a specified tem and humidity.

19:38:54 jurov: it's seldom used here, so everywhere there's only that which just cools and recirculates bad air

19:39:50 jurov: and everyone is setting them too cool, am getting headaches of that

19:40:04 decimation: like miasma bad air?

19:41:23 mircea_popescu: bring girlies along next time. or, you know... boygirlies i guess.

19:41:29 mircea_popescu: play tit-tag.

19:41:37 jurov: aha

19:42:27 decimation: airplane air is typically very dry http://www.askthepilot.com/questionanswers/cabin-air-quality/ " At around 12 percent humidity, it is drier than you will find in most deserts. This is chiefly a by-product of cruising at high-altitudes, where moisture content is somewhere between low and nonexistent."

19:42:31 assbot: The truth about cabin air ... ( http://bit.ly/1NJIuaI )

19:42:42 mircea_popescu: i had no idea when i was young i'll live in such gender role confusion times.

19:44:11 decimation: interesting: "The Boeing 787 has the healthiest air of any commercial plane, thanks to filters with an efficiency of 99.97 percent. Humidity too is substantially higher. The plane?s all-composite structure is less susceptible to condensation, and a unique circulation system pumps dry air through the lining between the cabin walls and exterior skin."

19:44:17 jurov: yea we were supposed to have warp drive and mind upload by 2010

19:44:20 decimation: having a non-metal skin would probably reduce condensation

19:44:31 jurov: but gender confusdion? never!!!1

20:38:58 mircea_popescu: tbh it's not a bad innovation

20:39:14 asciilifeform: generally, barring pathological cases, shorter -> better in maths notation

20:39:31 mircea_popescu: it does have significant similarities with actual congruence, so it's correcrtly oriented intuitively, and a word is prolly needed

21:29:41 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla how about you do this specifically : a) make assbot make an hourly report with prices and volumes for each traded commodity ; b) make assbot spot a line trade for each time trade in a commodity goes > 100 btc ; c) make assbot keep a wallet for every person in l2 ; d) allow me to order buys and sells on bit4x via assbot, just gives me a hash to unpack like rating works now.

21:29:52 mircea_popescu: and how about you do all this this week. i know i would trade on this system

21:29:57 mircea_popescu: and i bet you i would not be the only one.

21:30:37 williamdunne: I'd be an infrequent user

21:31:03 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski ah that. yes, like this always happens : chinese navy gets ordered to camp out between galveston and florida keys, us navy gets warned to stay the fuck out of their way. what are they going to do, fight ? the us is not fight worthy.

21:31:21 mircea_popescu: and next thing you know it chinese soldiers are on the ground looking to arrest obama to take him before miloshevich's tribunal

21:31:39 mircea_popescu: and to protect the citizens of baltimore from the criminal "federal government" with its long list of human rights abuses.

21:31:58 trinque: that recent chinese assessment of USian human rights was pretty lulzy

21:32:20 williamdunne: trinque: Source?

21:35:22 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: two outcomes from u.s. citizen perspective : a) "all hail the chinese, our lords and saviours" leading into much cock sucking, or b) "git off our turf yellow niggers !" leading into much guerilla warfare a la afghanistan

21:35:37 trinque: gonna be B

21:35:41 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski dude gtfo, there is no b.

21:35:46 mircea_popescu: what b ?

21:35:56 pete_dushenski: kakobrekla: will look into it. thx !

21:35:56 trinque: I can see no way in hell the south would deal with a chinese occupation

21:36:17 pete_dushenski: ^

21:36:21 pete_dushenski: huge country

21:36:21 mircea_popescu: yeah, im sure there's gonna be some guerilla.

21:36:26 mircea_popescu: guess what ? there's some guerilla in the ukraine too.

21:36:31 mircea_popescu: who ever interviews them ?

21:36:35 trinque: oh yeah, not saying it'll *matter*

21:36:43 mircea_popescu: well ok then.

21:36:44 pete_dushenski: even 300 mn fat tards leaves, what, 30 mn fighters ?

21:36:52 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski you're off your rocker

21:37:04 mircea_popescu: there are not 100k people able to fight a war in the us currently.

21:37:24 pete_dushenski: so there's 80k, that's a lotta guerillas

21:37:26 mircea_popescu: war means, i fear i have to remind, spending the next 5 years without a woman eating your belt and shitting in a hole you dug yourself.

21:37:34 ben_vulpes: trinque: ain't gonna be b.

21:37:43 mircea_popescu: 80k is not a lot of mobsters.

21:37:47 mircea_popescu: what lot of guerilla.

21:37:51 trinque: ben_vulpes: you people never leave the cities, do you?

21:37:59 trinque: there are still rednecks with assloads of weaponry

21:38:03 trinque: whether they'll amount to anything, sure

21:38:06 trinque: but people will get shot

21:38:06 pete_dushenski: 80k suicide bombers ?

21:38:10 mircea_popescu: trinque dude, the gritted dissent of the peasantry was never a notable historical fact

21:38:14 mircea_popescu: which is why it was never recorded.

21:38:28 trinque: I just expect shitty times in between now and then, whenever then is

21:38:32 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski right. except atm those people whio would suicide bomb hate obama more than the chinese

21:38:44 mircea_popescu: because inept governance has managed to alienate all the people who matter to cater to the people who vote.

21:38:56 trinque: mircea_popescu: but they hate obama mostly because they're having the reaction to "strange" you've noted

21:38:56 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: anyways, not like i'm defending the toughness of the americans, i'm just saying that b exists, not same as it being probable

21:39:00 trinque: not for any rational reason

21:39:05 trinque: he's just black and smiles too much

21:39:12 mircea_popescu: i very much doubt this.

21:39:24 ben_vulpes: trinque: the rednecks will be the reason china gets involved.

21:39:51 pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: how so ?

21:40:10 ben_vulpes: texas needs either zetas or chinks to hold its border to the north.

21:40:43 ben_vulpes: and china's the only one of those two groups today with ships and ship-launched rockets with significant distance capabilities.

21:40:49 mircea_popescu: <trinque> I can see no way in hell the south would deal with a chinese occupation << they seem to be dealing with a northern occupation just fine.

21:41:06 BingoBoingo: I could see a mixture of A and B with the Chicoms tolerating B in the areas uneconomical to occupy.

21:41:12 mircea_popescu: quite exactly.

21:41:21 trinque: that's basically what I'm saying.

21:41:23 mircea_popescu: and if you wanna b-talk, go to the b-tard reservation

21:41:26 trinque: chaos everywhere that doesn't matter

21:41:31 mircea_popescu: just like the us works now, so it won't even be strange.

21:41:35 jurov: and i guess chicoms will be happy to leave all the desert to mexico

21:41:50 mircea_popescu: what, you think maryland's not chaos everywhere "that doesn't matter" ?

21:41:55 mircea_popescu: go walk the streets at night.

21:42:18 trinque: I've been, not hungry enough yet though

21:43:24 BingoBoingo: I mostly curious if the Chicoms farm Iowa or mine the uranium under Iowa

21:44:16 trinque: ^ this seems wishful to me

21:44:22 mircea_popescu: that's really the tension here : usians currently use the us like inept argentines: they huddle around the coast and pull their cocks.

21:44:27 trinque: russia is not gone though the soviet union dissolved

21:44:30 mircea_popescu: the chinese would farm the shit out of that thing, to the bare bedrock.

21:44:43 mircea_popescu: in general disputes over land utilization resolve in favour of the more intensive.

21:44:54 mircea_popescu: and so... is no doubt in my mind the chinese are getting the us.

21:45:40 ben_vulpes: i can see them either filling a power vacuum or backing an secession.

21:45:44 ben_vulpes: a*

21:45:52 trinque: ben_vulpes: now there's a theory that works a bit better imo

21:46:08 trinque: something like the US is doing now in western ukraine

21:46:12 mircea_popescu: (you may think "oh, wouldn't it be more logical to do africa first ?" and no, it wouldn't. africa's inhabited by monkeys currently, so it doesn't matter. same pattern played out in 1705 - napoleon went after europe not after the us. because in 1705 the us was africa)

21:46:14 ben_vulpes: same thing i said before, really.

21:46:16 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> that's really the tension here : usians currently use the us like inept argentines: they huddle around the coast and pull their cocks. << Seriously big chunks or Arable land in Kansas went from farmed to feral in the past two decades.

21:46:26 mircea_popescu: i know.

21:46:34 trinque: ben_vulpes: far more plausible than china's going to land on the coast like normandy

21:46:38 mircea_popescu: fallow not feral. feral's about animls.

21:47:05 ben_vulpes: trinque: ah, i only meant to suggest that they might park an armada offshore to provide fire support.

21:47:11 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Commercially I think there will be fairly rapidly increasing Chinese investment in parts of Africa. Although that is a different matter.

21:47:29 mircea_popescu: williamdunne sure. and the us was built on european gold, look into the various panics culminating wit van buren

21:47:30 BingoBoingo: Oh, no. Completely feral. No one knows who the last title holder was on chunks of the place. I'm not talking unfarmed because it is out of the rotation. I'm talking retired from the being farmed business.

21:47:32 ben_vulpes: and with the work they're *doubtless* doing on autonomous flugenatoms that's going to be some impressive air support

21:47:35 mircea_popescu: but that's a diff story as you say

21:48:17 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes two things about chinese material research : a) american folk go "chinese have it so much better because their financing is secure" and b) they're spending about 10x more than the us

21:48:35 mircea_popescu: (real terms, nobody cares you paid your neighbour ten cents to claim you paid him ten trillion billions so you're rich now)

22:00:46 mircea_popescu: people gotta know why their ears are nailed to which board.

22:00:47 williamdunne: "The number of Romanians and Bulgarians working in the UK has risen by 15% year-on-year, Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures show. In the last three months of 2014 there were 172,000 people working in the UK who had been born in one of the two eastern European countries"

22:00:52 williamdunne: Can't be taking the piss that much

22:00:56 decimation: actually an enterprising young man from the uk ought to move to romania and start a factory

22:01:38 mircea_popescu: williamdunne do those statistics distinguish romanians and gypsies ?

22:02:09 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: They say born in Romania, so yeah I guess it includes Romani born in RO

22:02:11 decimation: do pikeys count as gypies too?

22:02:15 mircea_popescu: gypsies are a migratory sort, they're not anymore romanian than austrian, french or british

22:02:22 mircea_popescu: decimation i think so.

22:02:43 jurov: they are no longer migratory

22:02:52 mircea_popescu: yeah, so said the sultan, cca 1400

22:02:52 williamdunne: decimation: Generally people don't differentiate between Romani and the Irish traveller sort - all come under the name 'gypsy' in the common tongue

22:03:38 mircea_popescu: williamdunne they're not really irish either lol. just called irish in england like they're called hungarian in some parts of romania

22:04:20 williamdunne: Just throw it into the stew, why not

22:05:15 decimation: it's interesting that they didn't really come to the us

22:07:09 williamdunne: decimation: I was lead to believe there was a growing "Irish" traveller population in the US

22:08:00 decimation: I've never seen one that was obvious

22:08:10 trinque: there are stinking punk kids that call themselves "travelers" here

22:08:19 cazalla: the irish have been flooding aussie shores for the past few years

22:08:30 decimation: then again there's enough land in the us that you could live in bumfuck nowhere and not bother folks so much

22:08:34 punkman: trinque: lol I can picture that

22:09:19 trinque: punkman: just losers in their 20s panhandling because as mircea_popescu said, nobody cares enough to beat them up for it

22:09:46 decimation: those we got plenty of, but I never saw any evidence that they had families and culture

22:09:52 trinque: no, nothing of the sort

22:10:01 mircea_popescu: actually gypsy culture would stand out like the second coming in the us

22:10:25 mircea_popescu: stuff like burning man etc stand for the peak of it there, but it's just about life 101 in gypsyland

22:10:35 jurov: l0l

22:11:45 mircea_popescu: anyway. actually genetic gypsy people don't drink well. this, they have in common with the hungarians. hence the entire thing in romania.

22:12:30 mircea_popescu: contrairiwise, the irish drink quite well, russian-like

22:12:30 pete_dushenski: ;;later tell BingoBoingo "This incident highlight" << missing 's'

22:38:51 mircea_popescu: obviously if you restart the process of 5k years ago with the means of 5k years ago you will get the comensurate results. this is a fact, because the processors still work, and in the same way.

22:39:03 mircea_popescu: nevertheless... this isn't, actualy, a big problem. hasn't been, for five millenia.

22:39:15 mircea_popescu: god fucking help us if we have to fork human thought that deep.

22:39:48 mircea_popescu: the general fate of "o noes, we will be poor" decay-of-civilisation ~small thinkers~ envisage is nothing compared. romania went through three of these in a century, was fine, will be fine. so will the us, if that's all it is.

22:39:57 mircea_popescu: once you have to start forking the thoughts tho... that's gonna be hard.

22:40:27 decimation: yeah I think I follow. it's kinda the root of ascii's complain about computing stuck in the 70's

22:40:34 mircea_popescu: i suspect so.

22:43:31 mircea_popescu: (the three, for the studious : 1929 ; 1945 ; 1989. the ww1 was not on the list, but instead a great time for romania. unexpectedly enough. young cvountry)

22:45:07 williamdunne: cazalla: Comment deleted, just as I was about to make a witicism

22:45:23 shinohai: > Did Gavin sleep with Mircea's wife or something? This article #9281 from qntra claiming that Gavin is incompetent.

22:47:19 mircea_popescu: wasn't the guy married to some chick people were more or less jokingly proposing to be satoshi in early say 2010-2011 ?

22:48:26 mircea_popescu: cazalla ahaha wait, BingoBoingo is mpoepr ?!?!

22:48:32 mircea_popescu: bb show us your tits!

22:53:34 mircea_popescu: cazalla here's a funny : one view shows the article at 5 votes and 8 comments. the other, 6 votes, 6 comments

22:53:40 mircea_popescu: obviously these can't be both true.

22:55:34 mircea_popescu: and yet qntra is supposed to be censoring stuff. go fig.

23:17:35 BingoBoingo: ;;later tell pete_dushenski fixed

23:17:35 gribble: The operation succeeded.

23:20:24 BingoBoingo: Where is this comment calling me MPOE-PR?

23:21:50 BingoBoingo: Apparently reddit ate those allegations/compliments

23:32:22 BingoBoingo: Does anyone have the actual text of the comment?

23:38:22 cazalla: it was just a oneliner that you are probably mp

23:39:24 BingoBoingo: Ah, I thought you were MP

23:40:21 BingoBoingo: And anyways I thought you said they said I was MPOE-PR

23:41:13 BingoBoingo: This is a crisis of existential proportions! I don't know who the Buttcoin public thinks I am.

23:41:40 *: asciilifeform is pleased to not have this problem

23:42:08 williamdunne: You're all MP

23:42:12 cazalla: nah, mircea_popescu said that, must've misread or we've gone inception or something

23:53:20 asciilifeform: or that other thread, which i can't seem to find, where we spoke of how 'maths wot is not essential for being published, but for even having publishable ideas instead of burning your life on fibonacci sequences or some other solved/irrelevant dead end'

23:55:00 asciilifeform: as mircea_popescu points out, 'thought forks' are ruinously expensive

23:55:17 asciilifeform: makes global thermonukefest look like a cheap carnival ride

23:55:27 asciilifeform: if fork is deep enough.

23:55:59 asciilifeform: look how much of the 'thoughtchain' the folks flying the mohammedan flag ended up having to ditch

23:57:47 asciilifeform: (the cost is not apparent while the spoils of war - american tanks, ru/cn-contributed ammo, asian electronics - are plentiful. but try after!)

23:59:10 asciilifeform: the fella we keep bringing up, who directed his followers to use caesar's cipher, was actually being the very example of intellectual consistency here.
