08:23:37 BingoBoingo: kingking190: I've only been sober for jsut under 3 months now. I'm still getting used to this whole deal that goes with not being a blackout drunk. Serious lifestyle changes involved.

08:24:30 kingking190: BingoBoingo, oh i'm sorry wish you the best of luck. stay sober! ( goes and grabs a beer)

08:24:37 BingoBoingo: Also discoveries made. Like coffee does a much better job promoting wakefulness when it isn't just used as a delivery vehicle for Irish cream.

08:26:33 pete_dushenski: kingking190: y'know, given your unsolicited professions of love for your wife earlier, that she hits you isn't the least bit surprising.

08:26:38 pete_dushenski: ;/

08:43:51 kingking190: i will just go play with my wife some more.

08:44:15 *: pete_dushenski tried deadlifting for the first time this month. did 1.4x body weight.

08:44:29 cazalla: BingoBoingo, been doing em, already added 50kg to my squat since november (90kg then, 140kg yesterday)

08:44:43 *: BingoBoingo does not yet trust back enough to try deadlifts.

08:44:56 BingoBoingo: sweet cazalla

08:45:05 cazalla: not in the squat rack though, this sliding one where u stand in it like a space man

08:46:46 cazalla: like this, but more vertical and less black dudes http://i.imgur.com/6szKPkT.png

08:47:34 pete_dushenski: l0l!

08:47:50 cazalla: yeah sorta doesn't count eh, not hitting dem stabilisers, but using the machines to avoid injury, i always end up with some nagging injury from free weights

08:48:05 cazalla: still, butts to the floor, none of that half squat shit

08:49:16 cazalla: so, all this drama over hearnia, when i thought he said he left already?

08:50:18 kingking190: hmmmm

08:50:29 kingking190: nothing to say about this lol

08:51:16 cazalla: kingking190, hearnia or weight lifting?

08:51:45 kingking190: cazalla : nothing on that stuff

08:52:00 cazalla: both? oh ok

08:52:12 cazalla: maybe you should lift so your wife doesn't think you have low t or something

08:52:43 kingking190: LOL i pick up my wife just about every night and take her to bed.

08:53:05 cazalla: does she fall asleep in front of the tv?

08:53:50 kingking190: >_< no she plays video games untill she falls asleep :P

08:54:02 cazalla: a gamer girl? fuck, i hate them (no offense)

08:54:13 kingking190: LOL why is that ?

08:54:27 cazalla: well, you know the likes of kaceytron?

08:54:35 kingking190: who ?

08:54:50 *: pete_dushenski to bed. bon soir

08:55:36 cazalla: kingking190, she's a cam whore masquerading as a gamer girl, problem is, porn is easily accessible, so i don't really need to see all these cam whores on sites like twitch.tv

08:55:54 cazalla: great tits though

08:56:04 kingking190: lol i play games not watch people play them lol

08:56:15 assbot: Who is Kaceytron - YouTube ... ( http://bit.ly/1Q4J1pF )

08:56:35 kingking190: anyways why would i watch a gamer girl play when i have one to grab right here ?

08:57:06 cazalla: because i have a missus and i know that grows boring after the x month

08:57:17 cazalla: watching games is OK, depends on the game

08:57:43 punkman: Twitch really missed out on a solid revenue stream when they banned topless gurlz

08:57:50 kingking190: meh i love my wife so i can't get board

08:58:06 BingoBoingo: But does time love your wife?

08:58:25 cazalla: the whole girls play games thing though is really just women playing games aka advertising apps on their iphone

08:58:29 kingking190: BingoBoingo, yes :P

08:58:51 BingoBoingo: kingking190: 3 decades from nao?

09:00:22 kingking190: BigBitz, she will look lovely to me

09:06:08 kingking190: anyways why are you giving me so much shit about this anyways ?

09:06:44 cazalla: tbh, this is how much australians talk to each other in conversation

09:06:47 cazalla: most*

09:12:14 punkman: you must have rocks in your head to be using btcjam << lending money on btcjam is stupid, taking their money, eh, why not

09:12:41 *: BingoBoingo more worried about... giving BTCJam any information at all

09:12:45 BingoBoingo: !up op_null2_

09:13:10 cazalla: punkman, if he's borrowing, i'd bet he's lending too

09:13:24 cazalla: otherwise his account would've been shitcanned for scamming already

09:13:54 kingking190: i did for a bit but not anymore

09:15:18 op_null2_: Wonder when the community will learn that threatening hard forks crashes the price and leads nowhere ?

09:15:23 kingking190: i made good money on there.

09:16:22 kingking190: Theres a trick to getting loans out and make good money on them.

09:16:24 BingoBoingo: op_null2_: This one seems less liek a legit crash and more like a broomstick firing http://fraudsters.com/2015/so-the-broomstick-fired/

09:16:25 assbot: So the broomstick fired. on fraudsters - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( http://bit.ly/1J3duik )

09:16:25 punkman: op_null2_: the "community" can't rub two bitcents together so what do they care about price

09:18:44 kingking190: but they don't let us do that anymore .

09:20:08 kingking190: you could pull out like 5 btc on a 5% loan for 30 days

09:20:37 punkman: kingking190: and what if the guy runs with your 100btc

09:21:19 kingking190: punkman, not talking about lending. talking about pulling a loan out >_<

09:21:38 cazalla: kingking190, i hear asian women make good wives, is that true?

09:21:58 cazalla: in that they are more subservient, treat you like a real man without actually having to be one

09:22:42 kingking190: cazalla, depens what you want? if you want a girl who treats you good yes but if you mess with them there not like USA girls where they walk out....

09:25:43 kingking190: and ate romen noodles for 2 months

09:28:33 cazalla: ya know, that you and ya missus went from negative to positive, and it's all good!

09:28:55 cazalla: what assets to refos have?

09:28:58 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 10997 @ 0.00049922 = 5.4899 BTC [+] {3}

09:29:27 cazalla: from that article it would seem the refos have more savings than the locals

09:29:37 punkman: cazalla: not all the refugees are dirt poor

09:30:16 cazalla: times like this i'm glad to be down under.. good fucking luck swimming that distance to get here

09:31:30 kingking190: i sitting on about 1k

09:35:10 kingking190: lol

09:35:23 kingking190: i made some really good money on XMR

09:35:42 kingking190: made about 5.7 btc alone on that one

09:36:51 op_null2: What ever happened to mircea_popescu 's bet that Ethereum wouldn't launch?

09:37:21 cazalla: op_null2, none of you cunts put your money where your mouth is, at least until after the fact like now

09:37:37 op_null2: so nobody took him up on the bet?

09:37:38 cazalla: kingking190, hoping litecoin goes up doesn't seem like a sound strategy that's all i'm saying

09:37:42 BingoBoingo: op_null2: One person took it and never returned with a private key to claim it

09:38:06 punkman: there were some bitbet bets too

09:38:13 BingoBoingo: op_null2: Multiple morals from that story

09:38:13 op_null2: interesting. I thought it was a joke. seemed like he was giving himself bad odds

09:38:23 cazalla: why didn't you bet then op_null2 ?

09:38:46 op_null2: lack of trust, i suppose. "if its too good to be true..."

09:39:42 kingking190: cazalla, i have done the math and everything. but i just hope i am not wrong by some dumb luck

09:39:47 op_null2: He should port bitbet.us to Ethereum -- Groupgnosis and Augur will proabbly be more popular when launched

09:40:38 cazalla: no-one is gonna use that op_null2

09:40:39 kingking190: cazalla, plus the market could turn bad really fast one big market goes offline than Bang market drops ( well i will buy more but) still like shit!

09:41:02 op_null2: He could have done the same thing with MPEX -- could have been a huge altcoin trading site and made 1000's BTC in fees. he was an early mover.... I guess he alrady had too much BTC and didnt care about making more lol

09:41:07 cazalla: kingking190, i tried that trading game in early 2013, didn't work out for me, much better approach has been to buy and just hold bitcoin

09:41:34 cazalla: all these things mircea_popescu could've done, how about what you could've done op_null2 ? nothing at all eh?

09:41:47 kingking190: ok well wifey says it bed time!

09:41:49 kingking190: ^_^

09:41:56 kingking190: you know what thet means YAY!!!!!!

09:42:02 op_null2: cazalla: $9 million in Augur from thousands of users. They'll use it.

09:42:29 op_null2: cazalla: I do lots of things. Like consulting for people when they're making bad decisions

09:42:36 cazalla: didn't augur scam the early investers anyway? changed it from investor to donations or something later on

09:42:40 cazalla: kingking190, have fun

09:42:56 op_null2: cazalla: no, its all accounted for

09:53:12 op_null2: converting 50% to fiat is smart

18:23:39 ben_vulpes: phf: it's not "low car concentration" it's high people concentration. the concentration of cars in an area is nigh-meaningless given that a car takes up > 8 m^2 of space for typically one user, and this imposes a hard upper bound on a) the number of cars in a space and b) the number of people you can cram into a space.

18:23:52 noobsRus: is there any value in maintaining a true narrative across reddit/twitter/hackernews/etc.?

18:38:34 adlai: copypaste: fwiw, last time somebody said reddit nonsense to me i just told them "sounds like you've been spending too much time on reddit." and it turned out dude had enough sense to agree

18:39:02 ben_vulpes: so then why are we engaged in this exercise at all? some future derp will just flip out over the bit being flipped in the opposite direction.

18:39:30 mircea_popescu: because we live in the world rather than in the crystalline tower of pure thought that by rights should have been our inheritance ?

18:39:39 *: adlai is not in favor of moronic voicings, villages have room for many idiots but courts need precious few jesters

18:39:39 mircea_popescu: somethinglikethat anyway

18:40:22 thestringpuller: adlai: i've been saying the same thing to redditors, and they usually flip their shit.

18:41:59 adlai: thestringpuller: this was said outside of reddit, to somebody who mods a large sub; he already respected my opinion on matters btc, and i respect his on matters of his expertise, so it went over alright

18:42:50 thestringpuller: adlai: same. but most of these people are pure-socialists, "the everyone is equal" sorta deal.

18:43:41 adlai: all this talk of reddit made me check see whether it still existed... now i'm overrun with PM spam about some crappy method of hedging against btc failure

18:43:58 mircea_popescu: something to do with eth ?

18:44:01 thestringpuller: ethereum scammers herp derp

18:44:06 thestringpuller: hmm

18:44:12 copypaste: yes, i got that too adlai

18:44:42 copypaste: "bitcoin is doomed to fail due to block size. luckily vitalik buterin is totally cool and stuff so buy eth now" or something of that nature.

18:45:32 *: adlai notes that this alt does pass the "original codebase, distinct bugs from btc" qualification... but is not qualified to compare it to other hedges (ping fluffypony ?)

18:47:47 fluffypony: adlai: we'll probably move to annual later on, but yes

18:47:47 mircea_popescu: sure. the first year, two

18:47:51 copypaste: what happens if you just do nothing? you lost all your moneroj?

18:47:51 mircea_popescu: the next year, four.

18:47:52 mircea_popescu: and so on\

18:48:12 fluffypony: copypaste: how would that work

18:48:19 copypaste: i don't know, i'm asking you

18:48:31 fluffypony: that's physically impossible

18:48:36 fluffypony: or improbable

18:48:46 adlai: fluffypony: might want to discuss this amongst yourselves... being promoted to capital B status might be grounds for its cancellation

18:48:58 mircea_popescu: more properly put : what happens if someone actually takes monero seriously, and decides to disallow your future forks.

18:49:14 mircea_popescu: people keep loving this idea where they can "change" things. unless money follows you can't change jack.

18:49:22 mircea_popescu: !up ascii_shmoocon

18:49:24 *: adlai does think there's tangible value in a blockchain that's ready to be capitalized, even if Bitcoin never actually does fail

18:49:42 fluffypony: mircea_popescu: they're welcome to want whatever they'd like, and we're welcome to disregard their "feelings"

18:49:48 mircea_popescu: quite.

18:49:57 adlai: "hard fork whenever we feel like it, forever" = unready for capital-B-ization

18:50:00 mircea_popescu: and so if somehow monero became the one, it would simply be the one.

18:50:02 mats: i had a chance to scoop a shmoocon ticket

18:50:03 mircea_popescu: because there can only be one.

18:50:19 mircea_popescu: dun dun dun.

18:50:45 ascii_shmoocon: lulzy cryptocrackpottery talk

18:50:49 mircea_popescu: anyway. forks are utterly not at the disposition of any mortal. and there's no lesser mortal than a dev.

18:50:59 ascii_shmoocon: 'algebraic eraser'

18:51:36 mircea_popescu: so in the end, what any dev group thinks on the timing of forks is of interest to pretty much their biographers.

18:51:43 mircea_popescu: ascii_shmoocon any hot chicks ?

18:52:17 fluffypony: let's be fair, though, the chances of Monero ever becoming the largest cryptocurrency is about the same as the chances of mircea_popescu secretly being a woman all along

18:52:19 ascii_shmoocon: mircea_popescu: 2 'trans' for every biochik

18:52:56 mircea_popescu: fluffypony yeah but this is the spawning ground of long tail events. the chances of the us ever mattering were about the same as argentina's.

19:41:29 jurov: how would a tiny group of people cover the costs for mining and roads with smooth surface necessary?

19:41:41 punkman: small car-factory is not that expensive, it's not cpu fab

19:41:48 jurov: it would struck them as deeply uneconomical and they'd just revert to horses

19:42:20 jurov: punkman: because raw materials are mass mined and manufactured

19:42:49 mircea_popescu: what's size got to do with anything ?

19:43:04 mircea_popescu: the original buyers of cars weren't the 150mn derps, but the 15k people with means.

19:43:40 jurov: would they want to split the fixed costs?

19:43:51 mircea_popescu: this pretense whereby "everyone is equal" covers the very abrupt distribution curve where 99% owns jack shit and 1% has no fucking idea what to do with the world. needs to be flattened out.

19:44:49 mircea_popescu: and that flattening begins with "fuck you, salaries between 20k and 100k. how about from 120 to 12k a year instead"

19:45:18 jurov: no political bickering will change the fact that engineering has huge fixed costs that are best split to as many chumps as possible

19:45:24 mircea_popescu: not so.

19:45:36 mircea_popescu: headcount only matters in socialism.

19:45:51 jurov: you could have had a computer in fucking victorian britain. no one wanted to pay the fixed cost for the 1st item.

19:45:54 mircea_popescu: stop making the chumps have money they can't earn, problem goes awaqy

19:46:00 mircea_popescu: bullshit.

19:46:21 jurov: why babbage machine was not doen then?

19:46:25 mircea_popescu: in victorian britain people were more than willing to pay the fixed costs for parties in excess of the sustenance needed by one lancastershire neighbourhood.

19:47:01 jurov: irrelevent

19:47:05 jurov: *irrelevant

19:47:23 jurov: so they wanted to party, not pay for technology. and this changed how?

19:47:27 mircea_popescu: so they'd pay for ice scuplutrs enogh to buy the same weight in poor mill girls,

19:47:32 mircea_popescu: but they won't pay it for a car because... reasons.

19:49:05 jurov: the 15k people with means will pay for a computer or a car only if they foresee a possibility to recoup it from the chumps later

19:49:10 mircea_popescu: heck, maybe they won't. in which case they prolly have a good reason.

19:49:17 mircea_popescu: hah this is exactly not how it works.

19:49:41 mircea_popescu: i dunno why you think the world is chump-backed. it ain't. usg is, sure, but whatevs.

19:50:11 jurov: i am just explaining it to you, ooks like we miss each other

19:50:20 mircea_popescu: yeh.

19:50:30 mircea_popescu: no explicitly shared priors. what do we agree on ?

19:50:32 jurov: you think that fixed engineering costs for new technology does not exist or what?

19:50:59 jurov: moreover if it exists, you expound that 15k of people with means are interested to pay it themselves?

19:51:09 mircea_popescu: why not ?

19:51:22 mircea_popescu: or moreover : what do you think is structurally differfent between 15k and 15mn ?

19:51:30 shinohai: https://twitter.com/hashbreaker/status/683653768358019072 "I like tor for all mah regular web browsing"

19:52:30 mircea_popescu: the only difference i can see (that with selected 15k you can actually communicate, whereas the 15mn you can only herd, which is why copywriting instead of literature, pr instead of logic etc) argues against your position.

19:52:36 jurov: structural difference is that it's marginally easier to mine and smelt quality steel for 15mn than 15k.

19:53:22 mircea_popescu: not relevantly so. newton's laboratory had fixed costs, just like alf's laboratory does. guess who pays those fixed costs ?

19:53:53 mircea_popescu: let's not voice him :D

19:54:26 mircea_popescu: !up ascii_shmoocon

19:54:26 jurov: you do. and you don't want to sell 15m cardanos, instead of 15k?

19:54:49 ascii_shmoocon: l0lwut

19:54:51 mircea_popescu: jurov uh hardly, i don';t. he does. like newton did.

19:55:23 mircea_popescu: and i don't give a shit how many cardanos get sold. what interests me is for them to be good.

19:55:38 mircea_popescu: guess whether the 15k or the 15mn model promotes this view.

19:57:37 mircea_popescu: nothing "inherent" exists in this world.

19:57:58 mircea_popescu: and note that you're basing your mind on an idiotic "1 person = 1 computer" view.

19:58:23 mircea_popescu: nonsense. between selling 8mn crapples to 15mn cows and selling 1.5mn actual computers to 15k actual people, the latter prevails.

20:16:27 ascii_shmoocon: what, exactly, can't they do ?

20:16:39 mircea_popescu: wire ten dollars to isis.

20:16:48 mircea_popescu: arrest a judge.

20:17:00 mircea_popescu: say "nigger".

20:17:01 jurov: and how do you propose to have 15k independently wealthy? dependency is better strategy

20:17:03 ascii_shmoocon: ted turner could

20:17:10 mircea_popescu: jurov dependency is a miserable strategy.

20:17:25 jurov: says owner of most of our bitcoins

20:17:41 ascii_shmoocon: l0lz

20:17:42 mircea_popescu: how teh f do you depend on me ?!

20:18:04 mircea_popescu: for one thing, i've been spending so much effort trying to prevent exactly that sort of thing it's nigh on taxing friendship.

20:18:05 jurov: i have stash locked in S.NSA

20:18:11 jurov: for example

20:18:19 mircea_popescu: how's that make me the owner ?!

20:18:45 jurov: there are not enough bids

20:18:52 mircea_popescu: for one thing i'm a fucking minority partner in that venture!

20:19:09 jurov: who has the coins then?

20:19:18 jurov: the private keys?

20:19:26 mircea_popescu: in that sense i suppose.

20:19:37 jurov: hence, dependency

20:20:01 mircea_popescu: i dun see it, honestly, but hey.

20:20:11 ascii_shmoocon: fact is, decentralization is a fantasy

20:20:22 mircea_popescu: psshhhh

20:20:43 mircea_popescu: next you're going to say love is a fantasy, and so is liberty, and then ima say knowledge is a fantasy and you'll what, agree ?

20:20:45 ascii_shmoocon: every single one of us is on a cpu made in 1 of 3 places.

20:21:08 mircea_popescu: this "made" bs. every woman i eve rfucked was made by a woman i wouldn't have fucked.

20:21:13 mircea_popescu: what of it ? i still own them.

20:21:16 mircea_popescu: and use them happily.

20:21:45 ascii_shmoocon: not how cpu works, woman rules do not apply.

20:21:49 mircea_popescu: phhh.

20:26:23 mircea_popescu: jurov yes well, generallty the way investing works is that you can either fix the margin or the timescale.

20:26:42 mircea_popescu: this has nothing to do with me.

20:26:46 mircea_popescu: ascii_shmoocon i do not see why not.

20:27:00 mircea_popescu: other than, of course, "easier to be lazy and there's welfare anyway".

20:27:06 jurov: how do i fix the timescale? by abducting ascii_shmoocon to north korea?

20:27:15 mircea_popescu: !up christophe

20:27:27 ascii_shmoocon: nature doesn't make'em often and they tend to kill one another..

20:27:43 mircea_popescu: ascii_shmoocon da fuck, i only killed idiots to date.

20:28:24 ascii_shmoocon: that's 'cause nature doesn't make often

20:28:32 mircea_popescu: but hey, if you have some way to speed up alfie i'm all ears :D

20:28:38 jurov: i can sell 100k or 200k shares at 0.000089? where?

20:28:45 ascii_shmoocon: lol ditto

20:28:54 mircea_popescu: i see 50`000 0.00008888 ?

20:29:13 ascii_shmoocon: actually it is very easy but expensive sadly

20:29:51 mircea_popescu: ascii_shmoocon i'm pretty firmly dedicated to having spectacular sex with any and all mps. why kill each other ?!

20:30:05 ascii_shmoocon: i meant speedup

20:30:17 *: BingoBoingo wasted too much of my life reading a piece by Simon Edhouse of David Thorne fame. Copholarchaeologist can find it themselves

20:30:30 mircea_popescu: i gather'd.

20:30:46 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo lol was it all plaintive ?

20:31:13 BingoBoingo: You can find it yourself.

20:31:27 BingoBoingo: I just want to mention it exists.

20:31:38 ascii_shmoocon: and holyfuq are these talks snorefest

20:31:46 BingoBoingo: I'm already trying to unlearn it as best as I can without relapsing

20:33:50 mircea_popescu: anyway, to get back to things : 1. a thriving middle class means very strictly, ruined-usg-everything as well as scandalously oppressed orcs. this is what it means, this is what'll happen because middle class is not negotiable.

20:34:27 mircea_popescu: 2. decentralized world, and powers of varying magnitudes coexisting productively is an ~ecological~ problem. of exactly the nature of "don't shit in the soup bowl".

20:36:33 mircea_popescu: so ?

20:36:34 jurov: how is my relationship with s.nsa "coexisting productively" ? i can either negrate alf, or cause price to plummet yet further

20:36:40 mircea_popescu: plane's going down.

20:36:55 ascii_shmoocon: in fact there is a reason this is a recurrent motif in afterlife myths!!

20:36:57 mircea_popescu: jurov why is either of these not productive ?

20:37:07 jurov: and the coins aren't going to be used prioductively anytime soon

20:37:21 jurov: what is the product?

20:37:33 mircea_popescu: well as described in monthly letters, all sorts of things

20:37:39 mircea_popescu: admittedly yet vague and far from very usable.

20:38:16 mircea_popescu: and im not sure what is a more productive use of bitcoin than holding on to it, but ymmv.

20:38:25 mircea_popescu: from experience, few beat that strategy yet.

20:39:33 ascii_shmoocon: i often wish that we had not taken in the coinS

20:39:41 jurov: is "holding coins" in the s.nsa contract?

20:39:48 mircea_popescu: eh, trade'll slowly unwind.

20:40:07 mircea_popescu: jurov well company sells shares, until it puts them to some use it holds on to them. what else can you do ?

20:40:07 ascii_shmoocon: (the pot is almost uselessly small)

20:40:40 jurov: so, i'm dependent on it in any practical way

20:40:51 mircea_popescu: in the sense that it doesn't buy a si fab or what ?

20:41:06 mircea_popescu: jurov dependency and investment are orthogonal concerns.

20:41:13 adlai: !up ascii_shmoocon

20:41:15 mircea_popescu: sez so right in the merchant of venice!

20:41:29 ascii_shmoocon: not only no si fab

20:42:02 ascii_shmoocon: but would not even feed me for a whole year, if it came to it

20:42:31 ascii_shmoocon: not even half

20:42:52 mircea_popescu: why would it feed you ?!

20:43:41 ascii_shmoocon: if there were 1000x moar of it, you would still barf at the idea?

20:43:53 mircea_popescu: yes ?

20:44:04 mircea_popescu: who eats off capital for crying out loud.

20:44:21 ascii_shmoocon: everyone but me?

20:44:27 mircea_popescu: nuts.

20:44:31 mircea_popescu: do you eat your car ? your horse ?

20:44:35 mircea_popescu: capital you save with your life.

20:44:40 mircea_popescu: you eat off its product.

20:45:01 ascii_shmoocon: time is also capital

20:45:07 mircea_popescu: there's no merchants left in thsi world are there. whole fucking raft of culture and its knowledges, gone from the world.

20:45:24 mircea_popescu: it is not capital until you add it to capital!

20:45:30 mircea_popescu: by buying shares or capital goods or whatever.

20:45:35 ascii_shmoocon: as it is, snsa is somethng i do on the train to and from 8h of garbage

20:46:01 mircea_popescu: and from the looks of it investors are starting to have had enough, eh.

20:47:12 phf: "raise capital to pay developers"

20:47:25 ascii_shmoocon: possibly i'll have to reach into sofa cushion and give the coinz back

20:47:43 mircea_popescu: ascii_shmoocon what coins ?

20:48:11 mircea_popescu: speaking of which, is phuctor back online ? it'd have been a very convenient answer for me to give a few lines above.

20:48:14 ascii_shmoocon: what we spent- ~15? to date

20:48:28 mircea_popescu: i dun think you understand how accounting works lol.

20:48:43 ascii_shmoocon: mno, blew last weekend on the tx crapola

20:48:52 ascii_shmoocon: no phuctor yet

20:49:02 jurov: well the situaiton is that "person who will handle the operational, research and technical aspects of the venture" does it in his own time and own money anyway and whole s.nsa is scarcely needed

20:49:15 jurov: or am i wrong?

20:49:31 mircea_popescu: you are wrong in the part where you presume to decide whether what other people do is needed or not.

20:49:50 mircea_popescu: you're also wrong in imagining that anyone does anything other than in their own time.

20:49:58 jurov: lol i comment, not decide

20:50:12 ascii_shmoocon: jurov if you need it, you can buy me as well as anybody

20:50:33 mircea_popescu: you'll notice that while it took a very long time, s.nsa did not spend a lot of money.

20:50:40 ascii_shmoocon: but i don't expect anybody to

20:50:47 mircea_popescu: you're more than welcome to prefer a different time/money ratio, and even start a competitor.

20:50:48 jurov: except you would not accept any money cuz you don't want to pay taxes etc.

20:51:05 mircea_popescu: heck, i'd even list it, i dun see the problem.

20:51:06 jurov: what is the ratio?

20:51:08 ascii_shmoocon: the investors spoke at ipo

20:51:11 jurov: atm?

20:51:18 mircea_popescu: so far, ~15 btc and ~2 years.

20:52:06 jurov: oh, i am already doing it as foundation treasurer it has much better ratio :D

20:52:06 mircea_popescu: there's a lengthy list of various fiat-based stuff that tried the "low time, high money" approach. they all failed and had to be rolled up in ever-larger failed ventures, usg style.

20:52:18 mircea_popescu: so i don't terribly favouring the "quickly! spend!" approach. but that's just me.

20:52:25 mircea_popescu: what's the hurry anywaqy, the republic has infinite times.

20:52:47 mircea_popescu: jurov did the foundation ever spend anything, i forget.

20:52:49 ascii_shmoocon: but yes, it could easily happen 10x faster, and i'd be lying if i said that I didn't know how...

20:52:54 ascii_shmoocon: that's all

20:53:21 ascii_shmoocon: bbl

20:53:30 jurov: how much $$$ you need monthly?

20:53:33 mircea_popescu: ascii_shmoocon you'd also be lying if you didn't say you specifically hate it.

20:53:51 BingoBoingo: It seems that the answer to the S.NSA problems is getting alf food stamps and section 8 housing.

20:54:12 mircea_popescu: jurov lettuce not be naive. the alternatives here aren't the alternatives we perceive we would prefer. it's either he's a free man and does it as such, or else he's a peon like al schwatz describes in that very well written piece.

20:54:42 mircea_popescu: i dun happen to want to run yet another of those ventures, myself. but others do, and i'm sure if you're one of them you can go open an office in sf, hire head hunters and proceed apace.

20:55:15 mircea_popescu: and if alf specifically won't show up in the employment line, an exactly fungible equivalent surely will.

20:55:56 BingoBoingo: Methoxsalen might help with section 8

20:56:29 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo except he doesn't seem to want them ; and besides, what confidence does a bum inspire to be a chief engineer ?

20:57:33 *: adlai wonders whether the problem is "investors have come to expect", reminiscent of: "if this is not what you have come to expect, please adjust your expectations"

20:57:35 BingoBoingo: Aha, this really gets to the meat of the problem. Impatience with fiat not dying fast enough for any of us to buy Nevada on a whim yet.

20:57:47 ben_vulpes: foundation spend << not to date

20:57:48 jurov: mircea_popescu: i am actually trying to hire someone, but for that need to shift part of s.nsa stash

20:58:13 phf: i find the framing odd, i thought purpose of s.nsa capital was to assist ascii in his b-a aligned, but essentially personal endeavor, which might potentially have a return. somehow it turned into "pay ascii by the hour". if ascii doesn't want to work on cardano, it's not a b-a way to coerce him, but if the project still exists, is being worked on, then money will be spent when there's something to spend it on, and there will be a

20:58:13 phf: return, if there's value in s.nsa output

21:00:41 mircea_popescu: lol

21:01:02 ben_vulpes: this margin/time/spend way of looking at things is very illuminating

21:01:04 mircea_popescu: phf well yeah, in principle i agree.

21:01:15 *: BingoBoingo honestly would consider taking on extra projects if fig bags started appearing

21:06:24 mircea_popescu: anyway, alf's position is particularly unfortunate i guess, on one hand not one of "mps' 15k", on the other not one of the 15mn, is there no spot in the sun for an alf!

21:06:33 ben_vulpes: but also the startup short requires tending to the egos of those being shorted.

21:07:34 ascii_shmoocon: no spot but here, watching a bloke give a talk on thermite, wearing a firesuit

21:07:47 mircea_popescu: no thermite present ?

21:17:54 jurov: and i'm no mircea_popescu to get execution on my projects for $0.1/hr :(

21:18:41 mircea_popescu: anyway. my in-between-the-lines reading of the situation was that alf found, unexpectedly, that he had been doing dope for a long time, and while is working to get himself off the stuff, nevertheless due to the lenthy time spent on sudden solutions aren't practicable. so he's working on it.

21:18:59 mircea_popescu: course by now he's taken longer than conceivable for this purpose, but then again... his lyf.

23:09:37 pete_dushenski: jurov: in 15k world, gasoline still has other uses

23:09:58 pete_dushenski: the gasoline infrastructure that exists also has no reason to go anywhere as long as there's a market to support it

23:16:27 ben_vulpes: lovely highway driver, though.

23:16:30 jurov: tourbillons, cessnas, and ferraris vastly benefit from mass production infrastructure

23:17:03 pete_dushenski: the nissans, the mazdas, the porsches, the lambos... all need perfect roads. this is exactly why all these "sports car" firms are ~tripping~ over themselves to makes SUVs (aston martin, bentley, lambo, etc. etc. vomit etc.)

23:17:20 pete_dushenski: jurov: in what way ?

23:18:16 pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: sports cars generally suck in town at the best of times. fine for pulling up to restaurant and looking sharp, but everything else sucks until you're on the wide open road

23:19:13 jurov: pete_dushenski: established production lines for all the materials, metal alloys, glass, rubber, plastic composites

23:19:49 jurov: and electronics

23:19:57 pete_dushenski: this improves reliability, yes.

23:20:36 pete_dushenski: but these firms can't share too too many components with others (lessers) or else their customers will be ticked off

23:21:10 pete_dushenski: you better have a unique turn signal stalk in your 599 gtb. or else.

23:22:36 pete_dushenski: ^not off the shelf, not shared with anyone.

23:22:41 jurov: i did not say ALL materials

23:23:01 pete_dushenski: "all the materials" <<

23:23:23 jurov: sigh. okay let burn me on sigle word

23:23:37 pete_dushenski: that's all it takes ;)

23:23:54 jurov: they do use majority of stuff off the shelf from reliable suppliers, and these suppliers rely on stable overall volume in mass market

23:24:32 pete_dushenski: and without those mass-market suppliers, they'd still use suppliers, just ones that catered to a smaller market

23:24:50 punkman: /me wonders how much a small steel mill costs

23:25:19 jurov: well, say titanium mine used for specialized stuff runs out and new one has to be developed. who pays for this?

23:25:27 pete_dushenski: jurov: i don't deny that there might be engineering solutions transferred within there larger firms, but it tends to be a trickle down from the high-performance customers to the low, not the other way around

23:25:51 ben_vulpes: hard to make a small steel mill. the things tend to be huge and dominate the area or go out of business.

23:25:55 pete_dushenski: jurov: titanium company pays for this

23:26:05 pete_dushenski: and if they can't, supplier finds a new one.

23:26:06 jurov: but they have small volume

23:26:22 jurov: it will lead to disruption in any case

23:26:25 ben_vulpes: even $robofab i worked for one time had their castings done by a casting company.

23:26:26 pete_dushenski: so that titanium company goes bust

23:26:37 pete_dushenski: new one takes its place, maybe this takes time, maybe not

23:27:13 pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: hard to make a small steel mill ? yes. impossible ? no.

23:27:20 jurov: well, i don't see the "trickle down" as optional

23:28:07 jurov: you can't have custom "special" "high performance" whole supply line from mine up to the product

23:28:18 pete_dushenski: that's the whole point. some things might be "easier" with mass market consumers in the picture, but there are costs to this ease. arguably, excessive costs. and costs that would readily be borne if the mass market went byebye

23:28:56 pete_dushenski: jurov: sure you can. of course you can.

23:34:26 jurov: pete_dushenski: why would a person pay for such an one-of-a-few computer?

23:35:33 pete_dushenski: because it's useful ? because it's unique ? because fuck you (not you, but "you") ?

23:35:34 punkman: "In 2007, Nucor recycled nearly 10 million cars in its production processes, the equivalent of one SUV every four seconds."

23:36:07 jurov: and would be the computer even feasible when only anough vacuum tubes/xsistors will be developed only for top 15k to have radio receiver?

23:36:52 ben_vulpes: so they're a glorified waste-processing plant.

23:37:22 pete_dushenski: jurov: they were when computers filled the basements of university buildings, and there were only dozens or hundreds then. so again, why not ?

23:37:46 jurov: because there were mass produced relays/tubes/transistors available

23:43:23 pete_dushenski: punkman: classic

23:45:41 jurov: *shrug* i can understand, the world is overcrowded, it's tempting to dream of putting stupid people "to their place". whether that comes to pass, i doubt.

23:45:44 pete_dushenski: jurov: i can see it. and while i agree there would be trade-offs (less reliability, more difficulty find parts perhaps), i think that the benefits would more than compensate and that product designers would adapt themselves accordingly (eg. making repairs possible without specialised equipment and using more readily available parts)

23:48:06 pete_dushenski: with the amount of fiat sloshing around, it's hard to imagine this niche-or-nothing/15k-only approach coming to dominate industries and manufacturing sectors any time soon, but the thermodynamics do point to this as a far more (whisper it) sustainable solution

23:48:09 jurov: funny that communism actually achieved this.

23:48:43 jurov: so not at all hard to imagine.

23:49:08 jurov: what is hard to imagine, how to achieve this together with profit as a motive

23:49:53 pete_dushenski: aha. that's where the "the future isn't hyper-capitalism, it's feudalism" thread comes in.

23:50:25 jurov: and my reply was that dependence is best strategy

23:50:40 jurov: so not really feudalism, but one schelling point

23:50:45 jurov: one ruler

23:50:49 pete_dushenski: within feudalism, of course profit is still ~a~ motive, but it's not the only (not can it really ever be)

23:51:32 pete_dushenski: jurov: seems impractical for one ruler to manage that much complexity

23:51:43 jurov: feudalism in the past was decentralised only because of distances and communication problems

23:52:00 jurov: pete_dushenski: of course he will delegate

23:52:09 jurov: but then it's hierarchy

23:52:17 pete_dushenski: aha. dunbar number

23:53:06 jurov: people always try to overstep dunbar number

23:53:11 jurov: what's to stop them?

23:53:22 pete_dushenski: biology, time.

23:53:53 pete_dushenski: still, while communication has obviously flattened the world, and geography matters not on the internet, distance still matters for supplies, food, equipment, etc

23:54:43 pete_dushenski: so having geographic divisions still makes sense, even across cultural lines if people can't be persuaded to get along via market forces

23:54:57 jurov: pls explain that to every russian ruler in past 200 years

23:55:21 pete_dushenski: which part ?

23:55:34 jurov: "distance still matters for supplies, food, equipment, etc"

23:55:52 jurov: by your theory vladivostok should be self governed, or by japan

23:56:36 jurov: nope. what can expand, it does. beyond supplies, food, equipment,.. etc limits

23:56:52 pete_dushenski: i honestly have no idea how much autonomy vladivostok has.
