00:00:05 BingoBoingo: Fall back to MPOE's OIX

00:00:07 ThickAsThieves: just build a better bet

00:00:26 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 11955 @ 0.00082389 = 9.8496 BTC [-] {2}

00:00:28 ThickAsThieves: or even say, if Bitstamp is no longer trading 500btc per day, then this bet resolves as No

00:00:33 ThickAsThieves: two bets in one!

00:01:05 BingoBoingo: Most good Bitbets have at least 5 or 50 secret subbets tucked into them though

00:01:41 BingoBoingo: I.e. "Who could anticipate that S.Dice would cease to be a tradable thing"

00:02:13 ThickAsThieves: erik?

00:03:45 BingoBoingo: ThickAsThieves: See the Yes bet on February 23rd http://bitbet.us/bet/113/bitbet-will-we-worth-more-than-satoshi-dice/

00:04:07 BingoBoingo: Twas one of my better drunk bets

00:04:31 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [RENT] 20 @ 0.0055 = 0.11 BTC

00:46:12 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 9 @ 0.06700049 = 0.603 BTC [-] {2}

00:46:57 kakobrekla: if you are talking about bitbet, mods resolve bets, not some random strangers

00:47:22 BigBlox: hi, yes mods, they sent me here

00:47:34 BigBlox: hello strangers

00:47:56 BigBlox: are there any bitbets mods here?

00:48:13 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 400 @ 0.00082707 = 0.3308 BTC [+]

00:48:24 kakobrekla: perhaps, or maybe someone else will be able to help

00:49:21 BigBlox: k, well basically i entered the altcoin bet, that was to overtake litecoin, i said yes, i emailed and was told it was a scam, i said i didnt agree, specifically said i didnt want to cancel my bet, and it was still cancelled

00:50:15 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 19 @ 0.00574998 = 0.1092 BTC [+] {3}

00:51:29 kakobrekla: which bet is that can you give a link pointing to a bet in the list of accepted bets

00:51:59 BigBlox: yes, http://bitbet.us/bet/621/any-altcoin-will-surpass-litecoin-in-market-capitalization/

00:52:17 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 347 @ 0.00446999 = 1.5511 BTC [-]

00:52:18 kakobrekla: how was it canceled, its is resolved as yes

00:52:27 BigBlox: the auroracoin bet :/

00:54:06 kakobrekla: yes what about it

00:54:54 Duffer1: perhaps you tried to send btc after the result was known but bet wasn't closed yet

00:55:55 BigBlox: i doubt it, it was still open a few days after i sent it

00:56:17 Duffer1: odd

00:56:21 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 55 @ 0.00447 = 0.2459 BTC [+]

00:57:05 kakobrekla: time closing != time when result is known

00:57:36 kakobrekla: sorry, i should say !====

00:58:06 BigBlox: heres the date: 03-03-14 05:55

00:58:11 BigBlox: and it was resolved today

00:58:23 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 96 @ 0.00574997 = 0.552 BTC [-] {2}

00:58:39 mike_c: what was your bet? link to it

00:58:57 BigBlox: mine is the last one, on the 3rd for .08

00:59:38 BingoBoingo: BigBlox: Yeah, you bet after things were know it seems, but before they had yet to be resolved. Tis a dangerous time to bet

00:59:39 BigBlox: i sent it before aurora beat litecoin, then i wrote to ask if they were resolving it

01:00:12 BigBlox: i actually didnt know if it was going to but i believed in aurora from the get go so i was pretty sure :)

01:01:29 BigBlox: i mean i'm glad i got my refund, not trying to be a drama queen, but i was surprised i didnt win since i was the one asking, since the 3rd

01:01:35 kakobrekla: then provide the necessary evidence that aurora indeed aurora had not yet crossed litecoin mkt cap at 03-03-14 05:55 (it doesnt matter when you send it, it matters when you are confirmed)

01:02:14 kakobrekla: and -aurora once.

01:02:27 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [RENT] 200 @ 0.0055 = 1.1 BTC

01:03:08 BigBlox: k, where do i send it

01:03:21 kakobrekla: this box is ok

01:03:32 BigBlox: i took a screen shot to show my friend :)

01:04:35 ThickAsThieves: http://www.scribd.com/doc/210845161/SEC-vs-pirateat40-1

01:04:37 ozbot: SEC vs. pirateat40 1

01:04:40 ThickAsThieves: http://www.scribd.com/doc/210845205/SEC-vs-pirateat40-2

01:04:41 ozbot: SEC vs. pirateat40 2

01:04:54 ThickAsThieves: highlights here http://buttcoin.org/pirateat40-became-bill-cosby-coins

01:07:36 ThickAsThieves: "The Fed is using curent exchange rates (3/3/14) to say investors were defrauded of $149 million"

01:08:54 BigBlox: oh before, i have shots of the time after it passed, how can i get that?

01:10:03 kakobrekla: http://buttcoin.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Screen-Shot-2014-03-05-at-1.34.57-PM.png

01:10:07 kakobrekla: smickles ?

01:10:14 BigBlox: i mean the bet showed up on the ledger, then the next day on the 4th i emailed, does that count or can i show you an email with the time and date?

01:11:08 kakobrekla: ok so what does an email help to prove exactly?

01:11:13 asciilifeform: wait - it's a civil complaint?

01:11:42 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Of course this is the SEC

01:12:07 BingoBoingo: I believe that point had been mentioned here before...

01:12:28 BigBlox: the site says the bets are resolved hours after, if i bet on the 3rd and it was resolved today, then isnt that automatically legit?

01:12:43 kakobrekla: no

01:12:56 BigBlox: BitBet Mod 03-03-14 at 07:38 It has to be a coin, not a scam. Aurora is a scam, not a coin.

01:13:09 ThickAsThieves: Gibson named!

01:13:20 kakobrekla: where

01:13:26 BingoBoingo: ThickAsThieves: As a beneficiary?

01:13:27 ThickAsThieves: you just linked it

01:13:31 ThickAsThieves: no

01:13:32 BingoBoingo: kakobrekla: Your buttcoin link

01:13:32 kakobrekla: i did?

01:13:36 BigBlox: on the comments

01:13:38 BingoBoingo: Link just mentions meeting

01:13:48 ThickAsThieves: i havent parsed whole doc

01:13:50 kakobrekla: oh right, i does.

01:13:58 BingoBoingo: Need to read moar to see if Gibson is beneficiary

01:14:20 kakobrekla: BigBitz EVIDENCE

01:15:00 Duffer1: big one and number two.. anyone taking bets one of those was goat?

01:15:10 BigBlox: what can i provide? my bet went live on the ledger on the 3rd? you guys kept the bet live until today, not sure how that isn't enough

01:15:33 Duffer1: prove you bet before the outcome was known, regardless of when bet closed

01:15:39 mike_c: in that i am feeling generous tonight, and i think he's right:

01:15:42 mike_c: http://i.imgur.com/gssmMI7.png

01:15:48 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Pirateat40 does indeed have an outstanding criminal complaint, but that is related to domestic violence

01:16:21 ThickAsThieves: his middle name is "T"

01:16:23 ThickAsThieves: hehe

01:17:17 kakobrekla: oh, much wow mike_c

01:17:25 mike_c: i know..

01:18:05 mike_c: oh wait! it's wrong

01:18:06 kakobrekla: ;;later tell mircea_popescu get the whip out.

01:18:07 gribble: The operation succeeded.

01:18:16 BigBlox: i took this right after it hit: http://imgur.com/mXt6XUa

01:18:25 mike_c: ;;calc (4 + 1) / 2

01:18:25 kakobrekla: ;;later tell mircea_popescu put the whip back in.

01:18:25 gribble: 2.5

01:18:26 gribble: The operation succeeded.

01:18:30 ThickAsThieves: How long have you been married?

01:18:31 BigBlox: other than that i'm not sure what i can give you :/

01:18:36 ThickAsThieves: Oh, man, seven yeras.

01:18:46 mike_c: the line is at the wrong time.

01:19:05 Duffer1: Thickasthieves thanks for that, pretty amazing stuff

01:19:05 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

01:19:14 Duffer1: the buttcoin article i mea

01:19:16 Duffer1: n

01:19:18 BigBlox: i bet before aurora hit 300

01:20:14 kakobrekla: BigBitz as useful as a default windows xp background

01:20:17 dexX7: fyi: blockchain.info is broken, https://blockchain.info/block-height/288788 misses 225 transactions (ids: http://pastebin.com/gsa0c3iQ)

01:20:52 Duffer1: so Shavers is proceeding without representation?

01:20:57 BigBlox: thanx mike_c

01:21:01 BingoBoingo: Duffer1: Yeah, it seems

01:21:02 mike_c: no, don't thank me

01:21:16 asciilifeform: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=502952.0

01:21:17 kakobrekla: dexX7 http://blockr.io/block/info/288788

01:21:18 ozbot: The first line of defence is taken

01:21:23 BigBlox: lol

01:22:03 dexX7: yup, blockr is correct

01:22:16 mike_c: but if you want to try and prove, use those charts on coinmarketcap. from what i can tell, when your bet was registered, aurora was at around 4.5

01:22:25 mike_c: well above litecoin

01:24:21 BigBlox: how about my btc transaction, doesnt that show the time i sent the bet?

01:24:29 BigBlox: or ID

01:24:31 BigBlox: i sent from my wallet

01:24:34 mike_c: well, sent doesn't matter, confirmed matters.

01:36:32 kakobrekla: whut

01:37:17 peterl: who's giving out passwords?

01:37:52 BingoBoingo: Wait, is there trouble in veggie prison?

01:38:05 Duffer1: it's the shavers testimony

01:40:45 punkman: such deposition, no lawyer, wow

01:44:48 kakobrekla: http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=290799.msg5537766#msg5537766

01:50:09 ThickAsThieves: he did not return all of gigavps coins

01:52:21 BingoBoingo: "No, it is just a certification company where you have to take the tests to become certified"

01:55:41 ThickAsThieves: "I really wouldn't consider it an exchange. It was really more of a bucket shop" (bitcoinica)

02:09:03 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: also only a moron - or someone trying to shift blame - leaves readable strings in a trojan.

02:09:44 BingoBoingo: Prolly best to leave the strings out and fill the Trojan with Spartans

02:11:24 copumpkin: smickles: dude, he says you were in vegas when you weren't

02:11:31 copumpkin: unless you were hiding

02:12:13 kakobrekla: maybe someone pretended to be him

02:29:36 ThickAsThieves: wow they go thru every single pirate account holder one at a time...

02:29:48 copumpkin: fun

02:29:52 copumpkin: I haven't gotten there yet :P

02:29:54 copumpkin: this thing is long as fuck

02:30:51 ThickAsThieves: he mentions he used your account for other things

02:30:58 ThickAsThieves: but that the records are generally accurate

02:31:11 copumpkin: see, that does not ring a bell with me at all

02:31:17 copumpkin: we did fuck around a fair bit

02:31:28 copumpkin: but I don't give my passwords out and would be weirded out by someone else giving me their

02:31:28 copumpkin: s

02:32:32 ThickAsThieves: no this is referring to your savings account

02:32:44 copumpkin: oh

02:32:44 ThickAsThieves: he used people's accoutns to mask tx's

02:32:50 copumpkin: I see

02:33:04 copumpkin: why mine? :(

02:33:05 copumpkin: :P

02:36:16 ThickAsThieves: stuff*

02:36:19 benkay: "Bitstamp, you're now the replacement to MtGox. Don't screw this up."

02:36:23 benkay: mystical bitcoins, guys

02:38:05 BingoBoingo: I just can't believe Number 2, is this fucking Austin Powers?

02:38:47 ThickAsThieves: so many pages

02:39:02 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 10 @ 0.07000001 = 0.7 BTC [+] {3}

02:39:04 Duffer1: does he give any indication of who big one and number2 are?

02:40:19 ThickAsThieves: no

02:41:03 ThickAsThieves: an interesting thing that seems to be happening is he expresses full intention to make everyone whole, something he feels he could achieve, but SEC froze his accounts

02:41:04 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 14150 @ 0.00082427 = 11.6634 BTC [+] {2}

02:41:20 copumpkin: sweet, I'm rich!

02:41:21 copumpkin: >_>

02:41:22 ThickAsThieves: in a sense i wonder if he would have

02:41:26 copumpkin: lol

02:41:33 copumpkin: how could he have?

02:41:41 copumpkin: you can't just pull money out of thin air

02:41:46 ThickAsThieves: well how much would it have cost him back then

02:41:59 copumpkin: it was still a lot of money

02:42:05 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 28 @ 0.06710001 = 1.8788 BTC [-] {8}

02:42:08 Duffer1: if he stopped accepting deposits and wasn't holding fiat at all.. and got lucky on justdice..

02:43:12 Apocalyptic: <ThickAsThieves> in a sense i wonder if he would have // I'm pretty sure he wouldn't

02:44:20 benkay: "subfora"

02:44:27 ThickAsThieves: i wasnt around so i have no sense of it

02:46:53 ThickAsThieves: "Q: So a year after BST collapsed, you sent 202000 bitcoin to somebody who walked with it?"

02:46:56 ThickAsThieves: "Correct"

02:49:02 BingoBoingo: lol

02:49:04 Apocalyptic: copumpkin, so much for you anonymity heh

02:49:09 copumpkin: lol

02:49:14 copumpkin: have you tried googling my nick?

02:49:18 copumpkin: I don't try to stay anonymous :)

02:49:36 copumpkin: kind of annoyed that he keeps saying I have his password, although it doesn't seem harmful

02:50:24 BingoBoingo: Well, Moustakiswas the one to Bring up Gibson's last name, and the cubby white kid known as Goat is only refered to as Chaang Noi as far as I have made it so far.

02:51:30 benkay: "If you can adjust the price of bitcoin on your own through some market manipulation after you get them back from Big One, what do Big One's promises about what the price of bitcoin is on Mt. Gox matter?"

02:51:43 copumpkin: lol, pirate doesn't believe for a minute that goat's real name is chaang noi

02:51:44 benkay: "He's returning you bitcoin. He's not returning us dollars."

02:53:33 BingoBoingo: No one believe's Goat's name is Chaang Noi, but he proceeds as certain as does only remembering James of James Gibson

02:54:17 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 26 @ 0.00446999 = 0.1162 BTC [-]

02:56:49 ThickAsThieves: page 269 gets pretty funny

02:57:27 ThickAsThieves: they start antagonizing him over why he didn't perform days worth of computing analysis on the blockchain to provide more useful data

02:57:37 artifexd: "I lent 202000 bitcoins to Mr. Big Man and never got them back" <- LOL

02:58:48 BingoBoingo: I should have got a bigger bottle of Vodka for tonight.

02:59:27 ThickAsThieves: it's almost believable this wasn't technically a ponzi

02:59:33 ThickAsThieves: the wya he tells it

03:01:05 BingoBoingo: ThickAsThieves: He was clever enough to get three quarters of a million BTC under his control. It would make sense that he could try to frame things such that he admits to being a turd, but not that ponzi wop kind of turd

03:02:26 BingoBoingo: Thermos is mentioned on page 39

03:02:54 Apocalyptic: as Thermos with the "r" ?

03:07:05 BingoBoingo: Thermos because when you fuck up that much, you don't get the privilege of presenting yourself as an exemplar of Classic Greek values like sodomy

03:09:35 ThickAsThieves: "I tell you what. I'll give you a very detailed explanation of how the Tor Network works and how Tor mail works, and you can understand what I mean ... It's designed to not be trackable, not be traceable by any form of government."

03:10:12 asciilifeform: lol

03:11:47 BingoBoingo: Page 45 clarifies that Patrick Harnett did indeed have pirate exposure (page meaning sheet and not the quarterleaf the transcriptionist for some god awful reason assented to)

03:12:10 copumpkin: BingoBoingo: full account info is online, btw

03:12:16 copumpkin: so yes we know that patrick had a large account :P

03:12:44 benkay: where is full account info?

03:13:22 BingoBoingo: copumpkin: I know, but the scenario submitted some hours ago where asciilifeform clears the entire court docket because of poor signatures isn't a think we might as well read what is entering the court records as they presently exist

03:13:35 copumpkin: oh

03:14:23 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: either too much vodka, or not enough

03:14:40 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Far from enough to finish these filings

03:15:05 BingoBoingo: The modified anthem is an engineering problem

03:15:41 asciilifeform: sorta like atomic submarine was engineering problem for old jules verne

03:16:18 asciilifeform: i should note that the idea is lifted from neal stephenson's mega-backbreaker 'anathem'

03:16:29 asciilifeform: where people compute using song

03:16:49 BingoBoingo: Yet anothing thing to read

03:16:51 ThickAsThieves: done with doc 1, not a lot to highlight...

03:17:09 BingoBoingo: Fucking Penrose wasting years 2-3 of my undergrad

03:18:05 asciilifeform: if you folks only ever read one book i mentioned, read that one.

03:18:42 BingoBoingo: Fine, I'll pause Land of Lisp and get to it.

03:21:38 BingoBoingo: But does Stephenson have beautiful prose like "It is still unresolved in an 'absolute' sense. Kurt Godel and Paul Cohen were able to show that the continuum hypothesis (and also the axiom of choice) is not decidable by the means of standard set theory." Chapter 16 page 5

03:22:38 benkay: Anathem over Gravity's Rainbow?

03:22:56 asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: reamde was, imho, total garbage. i was about to lose respect for neal s, but then heard that it was actually written by a chum of his

03:23:02 asciilifeform: and published under his name for some reason

03:23:05 *: BingoBoingo wishes he learned to beat machines into doing math instead of learning to do math personally

03:23:27 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: piratebay, then 'mathematica'

03:23:45 artifexd: Huh. I enjoyed Reamde. Especially the discussions of in-game economics.

03:23:49 ThickAsThieves: great...

03:23:58 ThickAsThieves: i'm not crazy at least

03:24:05 asciilifeform: it was an ok 'airport detective shooter' but very poor stephenson.

03:24:10 ThickAsThieves: been wondering why the fuck everyone loved the guy so much

03:24:22 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I actually have a copy of Mathematica from this Dubious "Edx" thing. Apparently it is some sort of mook for pushing software?

03:24:24 asciilifeform: because, afaik, it wasn't stephenson at all.

03:25:31 ThickAsThieves: Anathem ordered

03:29:32 BingoBoingo: Duffer1: Penrose's Road to Reality

03:29:52 BingoBoingo: Duffer1: Great math book with some maybe wrong physics editorializing

03:31:20 Duffer1: looks interesting, I have added it to my list

03:31:30 BingoBoingo: I seriously forgot I even had this x that fell out, and kind of forgot what the x was...

03:31:37 ThickAsThieves: "realizing net proceeds of $164,758 from his net sales of 86,202 bitcoins"

05:08:47 ozbot: BitBet - James Gibson aka gigavps to be named as Pirate ponzi scheme fraudulent beneficiary

05:08:47 benkay: hey mircea_popescu is Vandroidy still around?

05:08:49 mircea_popescu: that should be quite interesting.

05:08:53 mircea_popescu: benkay sort-of.

05:09:08 benkay: sort-of?

05:09:08 mircea_popescu: ;;later tell jborkl shocking, i tell ya.

05:09:08 gribble: The operation succeeded.

05:09:18 mircea_popescu: ;;later tell gigavps how's it going scammer boy ?

05:09:18 gribble: The operation succeeded.

05:09:23 BingoBoingo: lol

05:09:25 mircea_popescu: idiot.

05:10:08 BingoBoingo: Just think, time machine and you could have killed BTCST in November 2011

05:10:24 mircea_popescu: you mean april.

05:10:27 BingoBoingo: Maybe even April 2011 for 500BTC

05:10:29 mircea_popescu: o 2011. heh.

05:10:38 mircea_popescu: you know i wasn't even there ;/

05:10:41 BingoBoingo: But then you'd miss Harnet

05:10:56 mircea_popescu: what do you want from me, i only showed up that summer

05:11:08 mircea_popescu: takes someone A FEW MONTHS to catch up and spread the roots you know ?

05:11:25 mircea_popescu: kinda how i ended up with "6 months". if it took me ~3...

05:12:10 BingoBoingo: Oh, if only S.TimeMachine was a thing

05:12:43 mircea_popescu: anyway, BingoBoingo : if i HAD done that, for all the laurels and glory (which no noobs can be bothered to even know about, so... it doesn't help THEM) the "community" of fucktards would have actually fallen for a much bigger ponzi much later,

05:12:53 mircea_popescu: that i'd have been equally powerless to do anything about

05:13:08 BingoBoingo: Eh, much later ponzi might have taught more

05:13:08 mircea_popescu: because the scammer would have said "this time it's different", and the way the primate brain works that'd have been enough.

05:13:21 mircea_popescu: so... ironically it'd have been a lot worse for everyone.

05:13:30 BingoBoingo: These are the reasons I drink to consult my lizard brain

05:13:39 mircea_popescu: heh

05:13:44 benkay: oh, there won't be any more ponzi's in bitcoin?

05:14:00 mircea_popescu: benkay yes, there will be. just copumpkin won't be whitenighting them.

05:14:17 mircea_popescu: which obviously i mean in a general manner. well meaning but naive geeks will know to defer that time

05:17:54 mircea_popescu: which, as you pointed out, is real fucking smart. and now he actually responds.

05:18:06 mircea_popescu: possibly worst legal strategy of the century award.

05:19:15 mircea_popescu: benkay wait what ?!

05:19:31 mircea_popescu: o o nm i read it backwards. yes, it is. and yes, he is. so...

05:20:34 mircea_popescu: ahahahaah o jesus god, "do you know reeses_ name ?" "art. a-r-t" "and last name ?" "i have no idea"

05:20:57 mircea_popescu: "and do you watch seinfeld ?" "yes i do!" "do you understand anything ?" "well as much as anyone on the forum ever understands of what's going on before their eyes

05:20:59 mircea_popescu: "

05:21:36 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: It took the SEC dude to throw out Giga's last name

05:22:26 BingoBoingo: lol

05:22:53 benkay: didja get to "business cognition"?

05:25:19 mircea_popescu: but they customarily hide their stupidity from family and esp senior male relatives

05:25:40 mircea_popescu: in the us tho, it's backwards, they do it as a joint venture. so are there no males in that country over the mental age of ~17 or what the fuck ?

05:26:21 mircea_popescu: i mean i used to think it's only the case for poor black people, lil wayne and whatnot. then i thought it's only the case for poor people generally. now i'm starting to think its simply what the murican male is. the us culture, if you will.

05:34:15 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo by the way, an important point : the reason the "media" sucks is not that they've sold out or follow external policies or w/e. it's that they are writing WITH THEIR READER IN MIND. the former then flows from this naturally, but it does not make a difference if you write with the reader in mind so as to advertise to it, or save its soul or merely inform it. it's all the same, and it's wrong.

06:55:36 mircea_popescu: A: No.

06:55:36 mircea_popescu: Q: What stands out at you as being incorrect?

06:55:36 mircea_popescu: A: I'll just know I used it a lot.

06:55:36 mircea_popescu: Q: For what?

06:55:37 mircea_popescu: A: For moving transactions.

06:55:39 mircea_popescu: Q: Meaning for Bitcoin Savings & Trust Investment transactions?

06:55:41 mircea_popescu: A: Yes. And he had a separate account that was a hidden account.

06:55:43 mircea_popescu: Q: A hidden account?

06:55:45 mircea_popescu: A: Yes.

06:55:47 mircea_popescu: Q: What do you mean by that?

06:55:51 mircea_popescu: A: Just an account used for basically his own lending account. They borrow coins real quickly to make cash transactions and stuff.

06:55:54 mircea_popescu: Q: From you?

06:55:56 mircea_popescu: A: Correct.

06:55:58 mircea_popescu: Q: What was his user name on that account?

06:56:00 mircea_popescu: A: I guess Gigavps, but it wasn't on Bitcoin Savings & Trust.

06:56:02 mircea_popescu: Q: Why doesn't it appear in this raw data?

06:56:04 mircea_popescu: A: Because it wasn't on there. It wasn't on this database or on this website. It was tracked through a - what was that - not Sales Force. I can't remember the name of the website. It was something we just worked out together. And it has a lot of his transactions. This account looks mostly like my stuff.

06:56:08 mircea_popescu: Q: Meaning --

06:56:12 mircea_popescu: Q: What do you mean by "my stuff"?

06:56:16 mircea_popescu: Q: What do you mean "my stuff"?

06:56:18 mircea_popescu: A: Core stuff. This isn't all --

06:56:22 mircea_popescu: Q: You mean Bitcoin Savings & Trust investment activity?

06:56:24 mircea_popescu: A: This isn't all of the transactions there.

06:56:26 mircea_popescu: Q: Next account, Goat.

06:59:25 BingoBoingo: Oh, and copumpkin was the doxxed one

06:59:46 mircea_popescu: what, you didn't know his name ?

06:59:56 *: copumpkin knew his name

07:00:07 mircea_popescu: he fucking sends email with his name on it, what's not to know.

07:00:12 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I knew it, but not in a court filing.

07:00:12 copumpkin: get with the times

07:00:30 copumpkin: lol, you google my nick my name is the first result

07:00:32 mircea_popescu: i guess.

07:00:35 copumpkin: I'm not exactly secretive

07:00:39 BingoBoingo: I mean Pirateat40 know copumkin's full name, but only James for GigaVPS

07:00:49 mircea_popescu: yes, but then pirate was an idiot.

07:00:50 copumpkin: he's also muddying things by lying

07:00:59 copumpkin: all over the placE :)

07:01:03 mircea_popescu: copumpkin no ?!

07:01:08 copumpkin: believe it or not!

07:01:13 mircea_popescu: i thought fraudsters never lie in court.

07:01:18 mircea_popescu: all this comes as news to me.

07:01:19 copumpkin: there was no way for pirate to think that goat's name is chaang noi :P

07:01:28 BingoBoingo: lol

07:01:28 mircea_popescu: right.

07:01:29 copumpkin: that's just retarded

07:01:47 copumpkin: I was amazed at how much crap he spewed in there

07:01:48 BingoBoingo: Pudgy white kid named Chaang Noi

07:02:00 mircea_popescu: actually... he only came up with chaang noi after his 6 months of laying low for the bst to blow over.

07:02:00 copumpkin: I think he got himself into more trouble there than he would be in if he'd just admitted it

07:02:22 mircea_popescu: well actually... i think in his case the meth defense cuts in

07:02:50 mircea_popescu: (ie, there's an absolute lowest limit a judge'll allow for self-critting idiocy, otherwise anyone from the inner cities would be doing >9k years)

07:03:06 BingoBoingo: Well this is just a civil case

07:03:25 mircea_popescu: this is really the reason prosecutions are so successful in the us. it's not really some sort of nefarious police stat

07:03:36 mircea_popescu: e/nasizm thing as some suggest. it's simply that most defendants are too stupid to live

07:03:37 copumpkin: and the guy is getting the SEC to drive him there in a car cause he doesn't have a car anymore

07:03:39 copumpkin: kind of sad

07:03:51 mircea_popescu: and if they were taken seriously they'd be just... you know, off to soylent plant

07:04:00 mircea_popescu: wait, no lambo ?

07:04:04 mircea_popescu: sec should buy a lambo.

07:04:08 copumpkin: apparently not!

07:04:25 copumpkin: they should ask the FBI for some of those SR coins and buy that mclaren that went up recently

07:04:33 copumpkin: fuck lambos

07:04:41 mircea_popescu: mclaren HONDA ?

07:04:49 BingoBoingo: Oh, the reasons I found a drive through miracle maker for my disorderly conduct misdemeanor, allegedly

07:05:15 copumpkin: mircea_popescu: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=499965.0

07:05:17 copumpkin: you should get it

07:05:26 mircea_popescu: i don't drive

07:05:31 copumpkin: high five

07:05:37 copumpkin: I get driven

07:05:52 mircea_popescu: i also don't care for sportsters.

07:06:10 *: copumpkin crosses arms smugly

07:06:16 copumpkin: mircea_popescu is too cool to drive, walks around with an open shirt on the street

07:06:26 mircea_popescu: definitely.

07:06:33 mircea_popescu: (and my zipper's not done in that shot, either)

07:06:50 BingoBoingo: Eh, I'll keep driving the shitty family sedan. No one suspects...

07:07:04 copumpkin: oh I wasn't checking

07:07:26 B007: how do you have money and not drive?

07:07:40 B007: or at least own cars

07:08:07 BingoBoingo: B007: Well Mircea has slaves, and copumpkin something?

07:08:25 copumpkin: I don't have a license

07:08:30 copumpkin: I get by without :)

07:12:18 BingoBoingo: lol

07:12:21 copumpkin: I liked the bit where they said "so wait, your company folded and you're in trouble now because someone screwed you out of 202k coins, and you forget who that someone is?"

07:12:28 BingoBoingo: Document one was the lulzier doc

07:12:48 mircea_popescu: i pity that moustakis guy.

07:12:54 copumpkin: that was a long-ass interview

07:12:59 copumpkin: must've been exhausting for both of them

07:13:02 mircea_popescu: it's like you sign up to be a chiropractor, and you end up sent to practice in the loony bin

07:13:20 copumpkin: moustakis had to stay focused to catch all the crap the guy was saying, and I'm sure pirate was in overdrive trying to crank out more crap

07:13:30 BingoBoingo: Eh, looney bin ain't bad

07:13:32 mircea_popescu: copumpkin no, not for both of them. romanian expression is "nu te pune cu prostu' c-are mintea odihnita"

07:13:42 mircea_popescu: which says, don't mess with the stupid, his brain's well rested.

07:13:43 BingoBoingo: Get crayons

07:14:04 copumpkin: mircea_popescu: I dunno, there were several pretty awkward moments when it was clear he'd been caught in a lie

07:14:18 mircea_popescu: so i take it you read this whole thing ? carefully ?

07:14:21 copumpkin: I'm sure he was freaking out and trying to come up with more convincing crap

07:14:28 copumpkin: well, I read the whole thing, not sure carefully fits

07:14:40 mircea_popescu: how about you make a full length treatment of the whole thing, with notes ?

07:14:42 mircea_popescu: i'd read it.

07:14:48 copumpkin: lol

07:14:48 mircea_popescu: are you under counsel to stfu or anything ?

07:14:51 copumpkin: I'd rather sleep

07:14:54 copumpkin: no, not at all

07:14:56 mircea_popescu: fuck sleep.

07:15:01 mircea_popescu: srsly, it's the best thing you can do right now.

07:15:06 mircea_popescu: for "the community", or w/e you call it.

07:15:09 copumpkin: lol

07:15:11 copumpkin: fuck that

07:15:14 copumpkin: sleep :)

07:15:16 mircea_popescu: irsrs tho.

07:15:25 joecool: store your passwords with him

07:15:27 copumpkin: I'm sure you can find someone with less valuable time to summarize the shit

07:15:30 BingoBoingo: copumpkin: The veggies need their prison tomorrow. When you wake...

07:15:35 copumpkin: joecool: you've made that joke before, it's getting old

07:15:49 mircea_popescu: copumpkin you're in a very good position because you have the skill and the experience.

07:16:03 mircea_popescu: what, you think i just sprout this shit randomly cause i'm bored on irc

07:17:01 BingoBoingo: copumpkin: DO a writeup in the next couple weeks, GPG sign it

07:17:10 copumpkin: I don't see what the benefit would be

07:17:18 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo for this purpose publishing beats signing.

07:18:00 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Given the nothingness published pre-August2012 publishing means little. "Shall be delivered"

07:18:11 mircea_popescu: copumpkin the usual benefit. a furthering of human knowledge on a topic.

07:18:32 BingoBoingo: Volume of text versus affirmed text

07:18:55 mircea_popescu: seeing how rthis topic is bitcoin, it kind-of trumps any other topic, even if some other topic may offer the illusion of importance.

07:19:13 copumpkin: mircea_popescu: I'm not opposed to it, but am not in a huge rush to spend my time on it either :) and would rather it be done in a formal setting so someone else can take care of summarizing/transcribing it :P

07:19:15 BingoBoingo: Of course.

07:19:21 copumpkin: lol

07:19:32 copumpkin: it doesn't trump that I have to get up for work in a few hours and need my beauty sleep

07:19:37 mircea_popescu: if you note, i said "full length treatment, with notes"

07:19:42 mircea_popescu: that does not map on "summarize"

07:19:47 copumpkin: pfft

07:19:58 BingoBoingo: I honestly am beneath this project

07:20:07 mircea_popescu: anyway. sleep well.

07:20:22 copumpkin: but anyway, as I said, I'm not opposed to doing that at some point :) thanks

07:21:07 BingoBoingo: I got the /. twice, but I am beneath the background necessary to treat this right

07:21:56 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i just went through the list of names there, which remarkably i had pretty accurate to begin with. crossing out the outright liars, like psychological compulsive sort, and the idiots, you're left with maybe 2-3 names

07:22:07 mircea_popescu: and i don't think reeses_ is even paying attention anymore.

07:23:05 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: My list is comprable, but I the weight the "testimony" offer weighs so little on names I've assumed more guilty.

08:26:48 mircea_popescu: so it's habit, but it's also that once you know things, stupidity appears quite different from how it appears back when you don't know things.

08:26:55 mircea_popescu: you gain what's called metacognitive ability.

08:27:35 mircea_popescu: and so you understand both why you had to be beaten, and why you'll be beating the shit off your kids, too. so they don't end up like the retarded us scum.

08:29:18 jurov: well, once you keep yourself clean other people can start to smell horribly (applies to stupidity as well)

08:30:28 mircea_popescu: indeed.

08:31:02 mircea_popescu: which is why society naturally segregates. it's not that the upper class hates the lower class. it's just that the lower class... stinks.

08:31:24 chetty: I wonder if much of the animosity between tea party and occupy could be simply smell?

08:32:00 mircea_popescu: chetty most of it. politics is a sexual matter.

08:32:51 midnightmagic: children do better, perform better, respond better, and grow better when they aren't beaten.

08:33:01 mircea_popescu: you mean irl or in dreamland ?

08:33:22 midnightmagic: irl. There is virtually no evidence at all that beating children helps.

08:33:39 midnightmagic: There is virtually all the evidence that says that *not* beating them but maintaining discipline helps.

08:33:40 chetty: depends on the child, some actually need it

08:33:44 mircea_popescu: no, actually, there is an endless record of evidence that it does. what there's no evidence for is that not beating them is sustainable.

08:33:49 mircea_popescu: quite the contrary evidence abounds.

08:33:51 midnightmagic: No, there isn't.

08:33:53 mircea_popescu: right.

08:33:57 midnightmagic: Right.

08:34:07 mircea_popescu: we can move on to discussing how temperatures form a golf club pattern next

08:34:33 mircea_popescu: but as an exercise : consider whether you're randomly lumping together beating children with simple abuse, as a sort of strawman argument.

08:34:51 mircea_popescu: some random drunk randomly hitting some kid is absolutely not within the scope of this discussion.

08:35:07 mircea_popescu: children have to be beaten systematically, in which case most don't actually even need pyshical contact.

08:36:12 midnightmagic: I understand what you mean. Virtually all infant and child development research disagrees with you.

08:36:41 mircea_popescu: virtually all data fugded by post 1950 us pseudoscience on the topic says random stupid shit.

08:36:56 mircea_popescu: it's about as good as us epidemiological data, that crap.

08:37:55 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 60 @ 0.00385001 = 0.231 BTC [-] {2}

08:38:27 mircea_popescu: well, either that or magically all kids suddenly need ritalin.

08:38:52 midnightmagic: No, ritalin is over-prescribed. That's evil on its own.

08:39:12 mircea_popescu: but it is over prescrived on the basis of " virtually all infant and child development research"

08:39:19 mircea_popescu: the same pseudoscientific process created both notions.

08:39:40 midnightmagic: I'm just saying, as much as it's possible to know such things, physical pain or even physical discomfort versus non-physical discipline tactics: the physical discipline is not as effective.

08:39:50 mircea_popescu: indeed. but do you know why ?

08:40:00 mircea_popescu: because the group that responds to the former well is SELF SELECTED.

08:40:03 midnightmagic: No it's not. Research is not the basis of ritalin over-prescription. In fact the research states that it is over-prescribed.

08:40:07 midnightmagic: :)

08:40:07 mircea_popescu: ie, theyre the smarter kids anwyay.

08:40:24 mircea_popescu: problem is the entire system collapses once kids know nobody can ever get beaten.

08:40:35 mircea_popescu: much like the us nuclear weapons, which the us refuses to declare will never be used.

08:41:06 chetty: fear is a wonderful motivation

08:41:33 midnightmagic: fear is not the most effective motivation. fear is not a direct motivator, it is a motivator to game the cease of fear.

08:41:34 mircea_popescu: basically you're externalising a cost. when "kids get beaten" subset A1 gets actually beaten and subset A2 learns from their experience.

08:41:43 mircea_popescu: you then run studies showing that A2 responds better than A1

08:41:55 mircea_popescu: once "kids don't get beaten" everyone's ~A2.

08:42:12 midnightmagic: That is fundamental study design. They don't make those kinds of selection bias mistakes in the research on which consensus is formed.

08:42:25 mircea_popescu: midnightmagic only in uncontrolled environments. in controlled environments, fear is a motivator exactly for education.

08:42:30 midnightmagic: Else someone else trying to make a name for themselves comes along and destroys it.

08:42:32 mircea_popescu: it's how the child brain works, for this purpose.

08:43:01 mircea_popescu: midnightmagic nobody is going t omake a name for themselves in the current us showing that not beating kids is a wrong thing.

08:43:06 midnightmagic: Yeeaaahh.. no. Sure it's a motivator. I'm just saying it's not the most effective.

08:43:24 mircea_popescu: it's not the most effective huh ?

08:43:31 mircea_popescu: it's the one to which kids can pose no resistence.

08:43:35 midnightmagic: I would say about half or more of the US actually agrees with you that beating children is the best way.

08:43:37 mircea_popescu: it's ultimate, not effectual.

08:43:45 mircea_popescu: it presents guarantees of success.

08:44:02 mircea_popescu: midnightmagic yes, but not the 14% aspirational crowd that "makes" names

08:45:05 midnightmagic: Anyway, just pointing it out. If you have access to a research institute with fulltext, you should check it out. It's really fascinating and, for me at least, counter-intuitive.

08:45:22 mircea_popescu: yeah, i think the most we can arrive to is stating the respective positions.

08:45:32 midnightmagic: Here, yeah for sure.

08:45:33 chetty: no 'academic' would admit things like that, anymore than admit global warming is off. the wouldn't get their grants.

08:45:59 mircea_popescu: chetty presumably the free market still exists in the us, both financially and with regard to ideas, so such an academic would "make a name for himself"

08:46:00 mircea_popescu: somehow.

09:14:38 mircea_popescu: this does not look toogood.

09:15:15 kakobrekla: they had an orphan in the list instead of the real block

09:15:20 kakobrekla: cause they were doing upgrades

09:15:26 kakobrekla: and were down for a bit

09:15:31 kakobrekla: and that happend.

09:15:32 dexX7: true, people were complaining about strange behavior for a few days now

09:15:44 dexX7: oh really? but the blockhash etc. was correct?

09:16:00 mircea_popescu: ah

09:16:09 mircea_popescu: ok than

09:16:09 dexX7: well, good then that it's known

09:16:14 kakobrekla: well i dunno, thats the word i got and i dont think its made up

09:16:27 kakobrekla: except if this is a different thing.

09:16:45 mircea_popescu: dexX7 wait, what blockhash ?

09:17:06 mircea_popescu: you mean the hash of the block as reported then matches the hash as reported now ?!

09:17:28 dexX7: there is this overview for example: https://blockchain.info/block-index/472689/000000000000000020cc76f78a24a6bc1c6d55e5514ee9b900ba08b3f97bc4a6

09:17:42 kakobrekla: anyway, whatever it is its blockchain.info related, not bitcoin

09:17:54 dexX7: and everything was correct except the number of transactions + the missing ones were indeed not listed

09:18:37 mircea_popescu: dexX7 the logic here is as follows :

09:18:52 mircea_popescu: the validity of a block is not established until later. which is what orphans and chain reorgs are.

09:19:18 mircea_popescu: if a service like blockchain.info goes down (ie, stops listening to the chain) it may end up with the impression a meanwhile discarded block is still valid

09:19:34 mircea_popescu: this would necessarily result in them listing a different set of txns from the actual set as found on the actual chain

09:19:36 dexX7: a discarded block would have another hash

09:19:40 mircea_popescu: which'd be caught up once it reorgs

09:19:48 mircea_popescu: but yes, said block would have to have its own hash

09:19:50 mircea_popescu: so did it not ?

09:19:57 mircea_popescu: cause if it did not then the orphan theory is blown.

09:20:30 dexX7: the hash and merkleroot was the same

09:20:45 mircea_popescu: well then i suppose you'd better blog about it, or post or somthing.

09:21:23 mircea_popescu: (i don't keep much of an eye on blockchain.info since there exists blockr)

09:22:20 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla: thats what you get when retarded webdevs make exchanges, for the seventy fifth time << mpoe-pr sez https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=290799.msg4924847#msg4924847 but retards know better. as per usual.

09:24:02 mircea_popescu: re smickles : fwiw i knew he wasn't in vegas too.

09:25:42 dexX7: maybe blockchain receives the complete blocks from it's backend in some way and had a small blackout while post-processing and adding the txs to their db ... well, who knows. they seem to be aware though.

09:26:23 kakobrekla: afaik the txes listed there were from an orphan

09:27:11 mircea_popescu: dexX7 maybe, let cary explain it.

09:27:41 mircea_popescu: so far, the "orphan" theory has a prblm.

09:27:44 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 4050 @ 0.0008336 = 3.3761 BTC [-]

09:28:15 kakobrekla: i havent checked anything but whats the problem

09:28:31 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla that if they had an orphan it would show its own hash and root, not the correct block's.

09:29:06 mircea_popescu: if you go "block 200344, here's the hash (from block 200344') and here's the txn, from block 200344" you got a problem

09:29:08 kakobrekla: not necessarily, you dont know what the bug was

09:29:28 dexX7: there is no orphaned block listed for 288788, but i only have blockchain.info as source

09:29:54 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla which is why i say let cary explain it, how the fuck would we know.

09:32:47 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo did it actually say "Michael Marquardt" or theymos or what ?

09:37:43 chetty: just Theymos I think

09:40:14 kakobrekla: two block appeared with same blockheight on blockchain info

09:40:31 kakobrekla: they had a fail and had to manually fix it thats why its not in the standard orphaned blocks page

09:40:43 kakobrekla: nothing to the story, move along.

09:42:01 mircea_popescu: same blockheight, same hash, diff txn set ?

09:42:33 kakobrekla: YES

09:42:46 mircea_popescu: some fail.

09:45:05 dexX7: but there was only one block in the network and two on blockchain.info due to the fail, right?

09:49:53 kakobrekla: afaik no

09:49:58 kakobrekla: 2 blocks on the network

09:50:23 kakobrekla: one is gone from bc records

09:51:04 mircea_popescu: so was this an evil block in some sense ?

09:51:47 kakobrekla: in the sense any other orphan would be an evil block to bc.info at the time

09:51:55 kakobrekla: as well

11:59:23 mircea_popescu: Andresen responded: "Yeah, I'm not happy with the 'wacky pirate money' tone, either."

11:59:23 mircea_popescu: Then he told Nakamoto he'd accepted an invitation to speak at the Central Intelligence Agency headquarters. "I hope that by talking directly to them and, more importantly, listening to their questions/concerns, they will think of Bitcoin the way I do - as a just-plain-better, more efficient, less-subject-to-political-whims money," he said. "Not as an all-powerful black-market tool that will be used by anarchists to ove

11:59:23 mircea_popescu: rthrow the System."

11:59:23 mircea_popescu: From that moment, Satoshi Nakamoto stopped responding to emails and dropped off the map.

12:14:21 mircea_popescu: yet he somehow magically doesn't understand why satoshi ain't talkin' to him no more.

12:14:26 mircea_popescu: i wonder. what could it be ?
