00:29:49 mircea_popescu: mthreat lol can one marry them yet ?

00:30:53 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Gotta remember it is 'Murica so Arm ripping chimps, not blowjob chimps.

00:31:21 mircea_popescu: "On Monday, Manhattan supreme court justice Barbara Jaffe granted a writ of habeas corpus on behalf of two non-human plaintiffs"

00:31:24 mircea_popescu: this is so fucking stupid...

00:31:32 mircea_popescu: how exactly does the us expect to ever be taken seriously ?

00:31:40 BingoBoingo: !up ascii_lander

00:34:15 ascii_lander: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=21-04-2015#1105894 << $64KBez question, why mircea_popescu gets precisely same spams as i do

00:34:15 assbot: Logged on 21-04-2015 18:58:13; mircea_popescu: Subject: Your FED TAX payment (ID:11HIRS244242490) was Rejected

00:34:26 ascii_lander: (who else? raise hands?)

00:34:44 mircea_popescu: probably someone bought a list of "business"

00:35:07 ascii_lander: i wonder if it includes, say, my garbage man

00:35:28 ascii_lander: ( if it can fit both mircea_popescu and i )

00:35:34 mircea_popescu: we prolly all ended up on it because someone or other did a harvesting run of ba stuff

00:35:49 *: BingoBoingo finally filed his annual IRS papers this week. Another 0 tax year.

00:36:00 ascii_lander: the lulzy part is that the addr where i get these isn't even the one in my wot key

00:37:29 ascii_lander: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=21-04-2015#1105915 << ahhaha. i have this thing going with pet, where in some sf universe there are differing, say, sugar chiralities for males and females to eat

00:37:29 assbot: Logged on 21-04-2015 19:24:03; mircea_popescu: but you can't make "woman flour", so just fuck up everyone.

00:37:45 ascii_lander: implications would make for a good yarn

00:38:11 ascii_lander: (e.g., folks eating wrong-handed foods to diet and shitting selves as per 'olestra' , etc)

00:40:52 ascii_lander: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=21-04-2015#1105935 << sop. the 'usaschwitz' thing is merely becoming formalized into written law

00:40:52 assbot: Logged on 21-04-2015 20:31:48; chetty: http://www.wired.com/2015/04/dmca-ownership-john-deere/

00:41:08 ascii_lander: (no one owns anything, not even own pathetic carcass)

00:41:49 BingoBoingo: I honestly could see the Tractor Pull lobby and John Deere coming to blows over this

00:42:04 ascii_lander: the basic precedent is nailed down long ago.

00:43:11 BingoBoingo: Things change when dealing with people who throw additional motors on a chassis more enthusiastically than AMD throws more core on a die

00:44:36 BingoBoingo: Tractor Pull is a phenomenon like Hamas that attracts an strong overlap of people with engineering talent and a love of firearms.

00:46:38 BingoBoingo: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/86/Tractor_pull_02.JPG << Sample of the small end of serious pulling tractors https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/86/Tractor_pull_02.JPG

00:46:40 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1HSomSM )

00:46:41 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1HSomSP )

00:46:41 ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: tractor is a strategic good

00:46:56 ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: esp. the type that matters, the robotic/self-driving one

00:47:25 ascii_lander: hence the importance, to the buggers, of nailing down 'no, you don't get to examine or change the fw'

00:49:20 BingoBoingo: I want to understand that, but have trouble taking that seriously when this happens 200-400 yards from my front door http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-359hBzEV4

00:49:21 assbot: Combine Demolition Derby, 2010 - YouTube ... ( http://bit.ly/1aQieNH )

00:49:49 ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: two worlds. one that is palpable with unarmed eye, and the one that matters.

00:50:47 BingoBoingo: It's interesting the ways that sports men and women weaponize these things that evade the inspectors and referees until the machines break

00:53:35 ascii_lander: mod6, ben_vulpes, mike_c: note to usaschwitz inmates: 10x the usual frequency of scam callz to my u.s. phone, during voyage. somewhere there is a db of folks who went off the reservation. don't be surprised if phones in your social graph were similarly targeted.

00:53:45 BingoBoingo: hopper full of telephone pole segments was my favorite. I have no idea what serious advantafe they were aiming for there

00:54:00 ascii_lander: betcha somebody got the traditional 'ransom scam' for instance.

00:55:01 ascii_lander: point being, that not only do things widely known to leak - leak, but also other things

00:55:11 mircea_popescu: lol john deere selling "licenses to operate" tractors now ?

00:55:16 ascii_lander: and one ought not to expect to hear any 'official' discussion thereof.

00:55:52 ascii_lander: mircea_popescu: in precisely the same way as crapple sells license to operate iPnohe, toyota - to operate toyota, etc. and the rest of the firmwarederpological world

00:56:06 mircea_popescu: so illegal, all of this.

00:56:11 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: ECU firmware license with purchase of tractor apparently

00:56:16 ascii_lander: started -at least- with ibm selling permission to use that 31st cpu etc

00:56:52 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7472 @ 0.0003244 = 2.4239 BTC [+]

00:57:11 ascii_lander: l0l, 'illegal' is a concept only meaningful to commoners, in usa

00:57:21 ascii_lander: it does not apply to anything usg or its tentacles might do.

00:57:48 mircea_popescu: i was speaking of the proper term, illegal as deemed by the most serene republic.

00:57:52 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 16428 @ 0.00032525 = 5.3432 BTC [+]

00:57:59 mircea_popescu: not pale fiat scamversions of the concept.

00:58:13 ascii_lander: might as well go straight to 'epidemiological hazard, nominated for glassing'

00:58:21 mircea_popescu: http://fraudsters.com/2015/pgp-keyserver/#comment-113787 << check that guy out

00:58:22 assbot: Page not found on fraudsters - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( http://bit.ly/1HSpYfh )

00:58:22 ascii_lander: rather than merely 'illegal'

00:59:45 *: ascii_lander just noticed the steady drip of derpcomments on fraudsters re: the fetlife thing

01:00:05 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu that commenter sounds pretty... simple.

01:00:11 *: ascii_lander wonders when the swarm will tire

01:00:45 mircea_popescu: even the longest journey...

01:00:46 ascii_lander: 'Or any recommendations in general for someone who is quite tech savvy, but whose programming skills and experience don't go beyond writing some basic scripts.' << what does 'tech savvy' mean?

01:00:58 mircea_popescu: maybe he works a cnc mill

01:01:12 pete_dushenski: he owns an ipod

01:01:12 ascii_lander: that'd be a bit further than 'basic scripts'

01:01:25 mircea_popescu: maybe he runs an engine mod shop

01:01:26 ascii_lander: (cnc is a fairly legit variant of what we understand as 'programming')

01:01:32 pete_dushenski: and he can sync it to itunes. his grandma cannot do this.

01:01:49 mircea_popescu: ascii_lander yes but like jourdain speaking in prose, he might not realise that's what it is.

01:01:55 pete_dushenski: so he was called 'tech savvy' once

01:01:59 mircea_popescu: if it were the only thing he does

01:02:48 pete_dushenski: !up ascii_lander

01:03:26 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu so how did the first conference in bsas stack up with the romanian editions ?

01:03:55 mircea_popescu: i would say steady improvement

01:04:03 mircea_popescu: i dunno, what do folk that went to both/all think ?

01:04:11 mircea_popescu: davout, which was best conf to date ?

01:05:18 BingoBoingo: ascii_lander seems to be lingering longer this time

01:05:31 ascii_lander: l0l aha still here

01:05:59 ascii_lander: and for most of tomorrow even.

01:06:08 mircea_popescu: so is the consensus that one can't be tech savvy without being a programmer ?

01:06:29 ascii_lander: mircea_popescu: idk but i still remember when that -meant- - if meant anything - that one could program

01:06:34 pete_dushenski: well are you not tech savvy then ?

01:06:48 BingoBoingo: One probably at least needs be know of programming.

01:06:49 pete_dushenski: ^mircea_popescu

01:07:01 mircea_popescu: i can code in whatever language you feel like,

01:07:06 mircea_popescu: i just can't be arsed to.

01:07:10 ascii_lander: ^

01:07:26 pete_dushenski: aha

01:08:03 mircea_popescu: i used to read diskedit printouts looking for Stoned B as a kid, i CAN do it.

01:08:20 ascii_lander: ^ m3m0ri1z

01:08:22 pete_dushenski: i can see it. savvy basically meaning that you can make the machine do what you want

01:08:34 *: ascii_lander nostalgic for clever virii

01:08:42 mircea_popescu: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/be/Stoned-virus-hexacode.png << dude check it out

01:08:43 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1aQk9lp )

01:08:46 mircea_popescu: many people remember, apparently.

01:09:12 ascii_lander: of course we remember.

01:10:26 ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: re: earlier thread: you would, i think, like this place.

01:10:59 pete_dushenski: ;;ticker

01:11:01 gribble: Bitfinex BTCUSD ticker | Best bid: 234.15, Best ask: 234.46, Bid-ask spread: 0.31000, Last trade: 234.32, 24 hour volume: 33051.75287713, 24 hour low: 224.2, 24 hour high: 236.99, 24 hour vwap: None

01:11:12 *: ascii_lander 's least favourite part is...

01:11:14 ascii_lander: ...

01:11:23 ascii_lander: … going home.

01:12:12 ascii_lander: i'm convinced that if most u.s. folks knew what kind of jail they live in, they would go full bore apeshit.

01:12:51 BingoBoingo: When I make it out I'd like to avoid that part. Probably not stay in hardware B-A too long first visit, but definitely temped to spend decade+ outsid of Illinois.

01:13:03 mircea_popescu: and if earthworms knew what their fate is they'd miss being the emperors of china, and the throne.

01:13:25 ascii_lander: mircea_popescu: they would if they could.

01:13:56 BingoBoingo: Maybe earthworms are wired to like living in the shit?

01:14:28 ascii_lander: 'We are worms, we're the best, and we've come to win the war. / We'll stand, we'll never run; stay until it's done.' (™) (R)

01:14:36 mircea_popescu: "She got the dogs safely out of the house, just as multiple armed agents rushed inside. Some even barged into the bathroom, where her partner was in the shower."

01:14:38 ascii_lander: ^ davout might recognize the source

01:14:45 mircea_popescu: lol derps timed it to bother the woman post-coitally?

01:15:44 ascii_lander: wai wat

01:16:12 pete_dushenski: they probably enjoyed the entertainment before busting in

01:16:12 mircea_popescu: some link in the logs.

01:16:16 mircea_popescu: to do with wisconsin.

01:16:31 ascii_lander: found it aha

01:16:39 mircea_popescu: anyway, people just need to start shooting.

01:16:57 mircea_popescu: put up signs "groups of police not allowed on this property. come alone or get shot."

01:16:57 BingoBoingo: Wisconsin was too polite, It's almost pete_dushenski land

01:17:15 mircea_popescu: and then start shooting at any groups of cops larger than one.

01:17:53 pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo apparently the border is increasingly blurry

01:18:27 pete_dushenski: now us border guards can patrol canadian rail stations and airports and if they kill someone, be subject only to us law

01:18:40 ascii_lander: nato colony.

01:18:47 BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: Wisconsin has culturally been the land of you fuckers forever. The new stuff is all things that should concern you

01:19:02 pete_dushenski: so ascii_lander quite that.

01:19:12 pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo that didn't parse ?

01:19:32 pete_dushenski: 'us fuckers' being canuckians ?

01:19:35 BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: Wisconsin's basically been Canadian since... the 1920's

01:19:52 BingoBoingo: As soon as there were enough people there to commune with yall

01:20:04 mircea_popescu: that'd explain the cheese.

01:20:05 ascii_lander: '… next came ominous warnings. Don’t call your lawyer. Don’t tell anyone about this raid. Not even your mother, your father, or your closest friends.' << l0l

01:20:13 mircea_popescu: otherwise us cheese is like tall chinese strippers.

01:20:40 mircea_popescu: ascii_lander meanwhile i'm like, "yeah totally, go read fraudsters tomorrow."

01:20:40 pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo well then wisconsin has been part of canada longer than (half) my family!

01:21:09 pete_dushenski: is wisconsin cheese actually decent? not sure i've tried any

01:21:34 ascii_lander: 'And she realized, “Every aspect of my life is in their hands. And they hate me.”'

01:21:36 BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: Yeah, but it's also an avenue for contagion. US badgov goes to Canada through Green Bay

01:21:56 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski it's actually not bad. well,m the better stuff anyway

01:22:43 pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo 'then straight on till morning'

01:22:44 ascii_lander: the only answer is something like total cultural dismantlement (see carthage) and the proverbial 1000 years of colonial ball-crusher.

01:22:48 mircea_popescu: in other news, http://33.media.tumblr.com/2e4abde700722943b58acc7eb4b2b8a9/tumblr_ncmjn3Ymmz1tmc6gao6_r1_400.gif

01:22:49 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1aQlDff )

01:23:21 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu i'd have to figure that everywhere has at least some variant of edible, even enjoyable cheese.

01:23:35 pete_dushenski: whether this is normal or not..

01:23:37 mircea_popescu: not necessarily.

01:23:49 ascii_lander: 400.gif << somebody isn't eager to take in the american cheese emitter

01:24:14 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu btw i didn't fully grok your comment on my infanticide article. sarcasm or no ?

01:24:41 pete_dushenski: not sure that being in favour of baby killin' makes one more or less attractive to opposite sex, but would guess the latter

01:24:45 BingoBoingo: California cheese pretty shitty, dunno why they are burning so much water on that and Alfalfa

01:24:51 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski i don't think any woman is going to score the male propensity to infanticide positively.

01:24:57 mircea_popescu: for that matter, any female, of any mammal species.

01:25:05 mircea_popescu: is the fundamental disagreement between the genders.

01:25:29 pete_dushenski: females want their children to survive, males want their children to perform

01:25:52 mircea_popescu: females strongly wish the offspring to survive. males weakly wish the offspring to perish.

01:25:58 mircea_popescu: performance is a byproduct.

01:26:24 pete_dushenski: a byproduct of what?

01:26:40 ascii_lander: of the opposite death ray beams

01:26:53 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski of that imbalance.

01:27:11 pete_dushenski: hmm

01:27:31 mircea_popescu: this is how everything works, incidentally.

01:27:47 mircea_popescu: the sun wants particles strongly energized, thermodynamics wants particles weakly de-energized.

01:28:05 mircea_popescu: as a result, coriolis storms, rainbows, deep throating and daisies.

01:28:32 mircea_popescu: all epiphenomena of the fundamental imbalance.

01:28:54 pete_dushenski: deep throating being when the father doesn't wish his offspring to perish strongly enough ? or too strongly ?

01:29:05 pete_dushenski: s/being/resulting

01:29:15 mircea_popescu: unrelated. it's a false bridge between the two example cases.

01:29:34 pete_dushenski: ok

01:30:20 pete_dushenski: i can see it.

01:30:23 mircea_popescu: point being, the strong push weak pull device drives all performance, but performance is a byproduct.

01:30:36 pete_dushenski: thankfully most contravex readers have dongs

01:31:08 mircea_popescu: if it doesn't make sense to women, it doesn't make sense to men, either. whether they're poorly equipped to figure it out or not, notwithstanding.

01:32:15 pete_dushenski: how so ? are there not differing perspectives ? differing inclinations between the sexes ?

01:32:23 BingoBoingo: Anything younger than 10 is probably too early to cull anyways

01:32:24 ascii_lander: cheapest infanticide is simpy: not making'em in the first place

01:32:30 ascii_lander: *simply

01:32:38 ascii_lander: just like the 'best car'

01:32:50 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski different perspectives of what ?

01:33:13 BingoBoingo: At least for cases not obviously cullable in womb

01:33:15 mircea_popescu: ascii_lander notrly how this works. cheapest computer is not "no computer". that's cheapest noncomputer.

01:33:15 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu towards the value of a child, particularly if handicapped

01:33:38 pete_dushenski: !up ascii_lander

01:33:47 mircea_popescu: eh, "value of a child" is like iq.

01:34:09 pete_dushenski: ok, value of your own freedom and independence

01:34:09 ascii_lander: mircea_popescu: whatchatalkingabout, works great. just like the 'noncomputers' running my knives, forks, shoes work great.

01:34:13 ascii_lander: best computerz.

01:34:21 mircea_popescu: lol k

01:34:35 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski that's like the value of god.

01:35:07 pete_dushenski: or of heaven and hell, ya

01:35:42 ascii_lander: how do you even comment on the 'value' of something which pretty much no one has anything like a reasonable reason to want.

01:35:45 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu i guess i'm still wondering why the 'making sense' equation has women leading and men following

01:36:04 ascii_lander: what is the 'value' of being dragged behind a truck until nothing remains on the rope but a small flap of skin ?

01:36:04 mircea_popescu: anyway, this "natural" thing... shitting in the bed is also natural. something being natural offers little ethical indication.

01:36:13 BingoBoingo: http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2015/04/21/michele_leonhart_resigns_dea_head_steps_down_after_prostitution_scandal.html << Mega lol, leaving when the opportunity for side income dries

01:36:14 assbot: Michele Leonhart resigns: DEA head steps down after prostitution scandal, disagreement over marijuana. ... ( http://bit.ly/1aQncK7 )

01:36:26 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski it doesn't. if something makes sense to only one gender, specifically, it's probably stupid.

01:36:30 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9550 @ 0.00032437 = 3.0977 BTC [-]

01:38:17 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu that's general enough that i can't argue with that

01:38:54 mircea_popescu: and kids are drastically distinguishable from animals, at any age.

01:38:57 mircea_popescu: for one thing, they grab.

01:39:07 ascii_lander: cat grabs

01:39:13 mircea_popescu: kitten doth not.

01:39:18 ascii_lander: one grabbed me at the old cemetary just today

01:39:18 ascii_lander: hm

01:40:15 mircea_popescu: monkeys do not, either. they eventually learn to, but if you watch it specifically, the difference is striking.

01:40:39 BingoBoingo: Racoons grab, play hockey

01:40:46 mircea_popescu: adfults, yes.

01:41:13 BingoBoingo: With a life expectancy of 2 years hard to call any racoons adults

01:41:20 mircea_popescu: haha ok

01:42:43 BingoBoingo: I have seem a great many short flat citronella candle in tin leave the bounds of the picnic table in the backyard due to those masked bandits

01:42:49 mircea_popescu: anyway, this entire discussion of interests and bs... i dunno that there's any value in trying to re-write the protestant ethics-as-capitalism.

01:43:13 mircea_popescu: it's been amply documented and vastly shown to not work, one's probably better served by reading the past three centuries of various attempts.

01:43:14 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu this a romanian article you're referring to ?

01:43:22 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski which this ?

01:43:33 pete_dushenski: the 're-write'

01:43:38 mircea_popescu: no, yours.

01:43:53 pete_dushenski: lol aok

01:44:07 ascii_lander: just what is it that was shown not to work ?

01:44:22 mircea_popescu: "it can?t possibly outweigh the interests of " etc

01:44:36 ascii_lander: it is like saying that meteorite does not work. for the man whose head it falls on - it 'worked.'

01:44:39 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8800 @ 0.00031306 = 2.7549 BTC [-]

01:44:51 mircea_popescu: ascii_lander the idea that you can calculate the sum-value-in-the-future for alternative courses of actions and pick like you pick an investment

01:44:56 ascii_lander: aha that

01:45:09 mircea_popescu: ie, protestant ethics-as-capitalism

01:45:20 ascii_lander: rawls being the most well-known offender here

01:45:24 ascii_lander: but others, aha

01:45:33 mircea_popescu: at least in fashionable contemporary english, sure.

01:45:33 ascii_lander: revolting gasbags

01:46:40 *: ascii_lander sat for a while in the tango place after mircea_popescu and hanbot went home, and reread favourite parts in ben_vulpes's copy of 'asylum', and contemplated lessons thereof

01:46:50 mircea_popescu: it's squarely irrelevant "where this leads". lead it where it may, do it or don't do it on some basis other than you know, "expectations".

01:47:06 mircea_popescu: all the derps pushing gaw, for instance, neglected proper causes of action because of their retarded dreams as to the future.

01:47:10 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu ok so 'can't possibly' is too strong.

01:47:13 mircea_popescu: it's not a very sane approach to action.

01:47:26 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski no, just, the approach is meaningless. who cares what outweighs what.

01:47:38 ascii_lander: mircea_popescu: it is the logic of hunger. or, more to the point, of thirst. what is the logic of a stranded sailor deciding to drink sea water ?

02:51:21 *: ascii_lander wonders who will be the first fella to get a 'dear john' telegram while at a fraudsters meetup

02:51:25 ben_vulpes: hey kakobrekla talk to mike and get the appropriate links dialed into assbot pwetty pwease? eg http://www.btcalpha.com/wot/trust/?from=assbot&to=williamdunne

02:51:52 BingoBoingo: recon_eric: Honestly holds as little interest of mine as a zoo animal. Josh is only interesting at the points where he almost touches real persons.

02:52:31 williamdunne: recon_eric: Thread might be worth reading that I linked

02:52:42 ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: imho garza et al are about as interesting as, e.g., buruli ulcer.

02:52:50 ascii_lander: which is to say very, if you're afflicted

02:53:10 ben_vulpes: ascii_lander, mircea_popescu: you know, wot solves the buenos aires black market labor problem too

02:53:50 ben_vulpes: i am probably late to this party as well

02:54:14 BingoBoingo: ascii_lander: Chives that escape containement do not mortally endanger yards in my care, but they interest me.

02:54:15 ascii_lander: ben_vulpes: i think he was looking for (or at least didactically portraying) conveyor men, not programmers.

02:54:30 ascii_lander: ben_vulpes: as i understand there are no programmers here

02:54:36 ascii_lander: we will have to learn new profession.

02:55:10 BingoBoingo: Oh shit, and I was starting to python decent without dead trees next to computing monitor

02:55:14 ascii_lander: and l0l, i don't even remember how to program any more (at least in the traditional sense where someone gives you a spec & pays)

02:56:00 williamdunne: ascii_lander: Use Node and 7 frameworks, apparently

02:56:23 ascii_lander: williamdunne: this is only vaguely meaningful in my head.

02:56:38 *: BingoBoingo would like to see a WordPress 2.X replacement in SBCL

02:57:05 ascii_lander: BingoBoingo: would you also like to see a vietnamese water buffalo replacement that runs on jp-A ?

02:57:21 BingoBoingo: ascii_lander: actually... yeah

02:57:38 ascii_lander: not everything is a category that ought to be replaced and live

02:58:37 ben_vulpes: no, fuck "needs".

02:58:39 ascii_lander: and if you have it, and it isn't obvious, then it doesn't work.

02:59:47 williamdunne: ben_vulpes: Alternatively people need to start shooting so that its too risky for them to continue running into houses

02:59:56 ascii_lander: if it becomes known that you've cemented a toiletcam into every brick in your house - you will be beaten and arrested/'shot on escape' elsewhere

02:59:59 ben_vulpes: williamdunne: kind of a nonstarter.

03:00:09 ben_vulpes: ascii_lander: they go after der boxen.

03:00:23 ben_vulpes: house entry is a terror tactic, not actually performing research.

03:00:39 ascii_lander: ben_vulpes: if you have something of actual value on these - pull the pin.

03:00:49 ben_vulpes: how would they know though

03:01:00 ben_vulpes: they are the most derpy of derps.

03:01:06 ascii_lander: i mean, when the battering ram crashes through

03:01:14 ascii_lander: then - pull the pin, what else.

03:01:22 *: BingoBoingo would like girls with Yugo SKS, nato grenade combo

03:01:30 ben_vulpes: pulling the pin does nothing to humiliate everyone involved.

03:01:34 ben_vulpes: in painstaking detail.

03:01:51 BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Pin activates thermite, thermite brings liberty

03:01:57 ascii_lander: how does ending on on 'youtube' humiliate the thugs?

03:02:08 ascii_lander: they love exposure. can terrorize 1000 people instead of 1

03:02:25 ascii_lander: the only useful application would be to avoid 'nailgunning'

03:02:26 ben_vulpes: in courtroom.

03:02:34 ascii_lander: l0lr00m

03:02:34 ben_vulpes: also pill against nailgunning.

03:02:43 ben_vulpes: 'pill'

03:02:53 BingoBoingo: COurtroom is zoo pen at best, county far at worst

03:03:19 ascii_lander: at any rate, if anyone here does not have -some- variant of this in place, now would be the time to make arrangements.

03:03:21 ben_vulpes: and if the things are incredibly low cost and easily hidden, the unknowability of where its deployed makes people start to think multiple times.

03:03:56 ascii_lander: tip: avoid powering with obvious wires.

03:04:03 ben_vulpes: especially if their names end up rather publically attached to such actions.

03:10:37 BingoBoingo: Oh, kittens didn't die. A -redacted- met the spade

03:10:44 ben_vulpes: you recall the scottish kitten?

03:10:53 BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: moiety?

03:10:57 ben_vulpes: aha

03:11:36 ascii_lander: yes. that one.

03:11:40 ben_vulpes: [01:19] ascii_lander meanwhile i'm like, "yeah totally, go read fraudsters tomorrow." << precisely my point

03:11:42 ascii_lander: RIP moiety

03:11:48 ben_vulpes: RIP moiety

03:11:54 BingoBoingo: RIP moiety

03:12:11 ascii_lander: i picked up and played with a small moiety earlier today, in the cemetary

03:12:25 ben_vulpes: i'll buy her a great big fuck off box in recolata after victory

03:12:25 ascii_lander: they have them running around, there are dishes with food.

03:12:37 ben_vulpes: redactoleta i mean

03:14:20 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes no, it does not, because the locals are either mentally retarded or mentally ill.

03:14:46 mircea_popescu: before you can have good tools, you need the orcs developed enough to use them.

03:14:59 mircea_popescu: imagine arming the mongol horde with ak-47s only to discover they use it as a club.

03:15:06 ben_vulpes: i suppose implicit is the importing of staff

03:15:15 ascii_lander: mircea_popescu: mosin was a club quite often.

03:15:16 ben_vulpes: (st4ph)

03:15:34 mircea_popescu: yeah but mosin sucked.

03:15:52 ben_vulpes: [01:31] just like the 'best car' << "cultures that do not cherish the young mother perish", and we want this for la serenissima?

03:16:22 ascii_lander: ben_vulpes: only pointing out that i, for example, would rather eat nagant than raise offspring

03:16:29 mircea_popescu: there's really no further point for most of ba's population. alf likes the women, some light industry (cooks, etc) are salavageable,

03:16:45 mircea_popescu: but by and large these derps are about as needed as any black african from africa.

03:16:52 mircea_popescu: the sooner they go the way of malaria, the better.

03:17:03 ben_vulpes: kind of my point

03:17:18 ascii_lander: come now, who is to be the worker bee in the hive ?

03:17:34 mircea_popescu: like nuke deterrent. << no, he has a point. the footage is valuable.

03:17:37 BingoBoingo: the sooner they go the way of malaria, the better. << falcipram?

03:17:46 *: ascii_lander really does like them

03:18:01 ben_vulpes: so go out and talk to them!

03:18:07 mircea_popescu: but by and large im with williamdunne on this : if what it takes to force the usg into abject surrender is turning suburbia into iraq, fucking turn suburbia into iraq.

03:18:21 ascii_lander: ben_vulpes: too high tech for my illiterate mind

03:18:34 ben_vulpes: fistful of tacks, i know

03:18:38 ascii_lander: ^

03:18:54 ben_vulpes: all tech though is learnable

03:19:01 ben_vulpes: you're just lazy and i think possibly scared

03:19:01 mircea_popescu: that simple policy : no groups allowed on this property. enforced with guns.

03:19:09 mircea_popescu: let them try and get around it. as the costs baloon they will give up.

03:19:12 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: The men bursting through doors are men like any other, if they think they will be met with a chestful of lead they are going to want a little more compensation for doing their job..

03:19:28 ben_vulpes: ascii_lander: i understand, the actual nuke-carriers chased me off the floor tonight.

03:19:38 ben_vulpes: but someday(!) i'll have their ears 'pon me necklace

03:19:47 ascii_lander: ben_vulpes: 'lazy' is not quite the word. imagine you grew up without ever interacting with cars in any way other than jumping out from under the wheels of a speeding semi every other day.

03:20:05 BingoBoingo: Who wouldn't want to give process servers a bit of disincentive, right recon_eric ?

03:20:29 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes there's a subtle difference re "young mothers". serenissima is an elective thing. you don't get born into it, quite specifically.

03:21:17 ben_vulpes: no clearly, but the young can be set upon the road much more early can they not?

03:21:25 ascii_lander: williamdunne: … if they think they will be met with a chestful of lead they are going to want a little more compensation for doing their job.. << this is part of the process of how we got the 'no-knock warrant.' the next step is, of course, the 'shoot-first' warrant.

03:21:29 ascii_lander: we will get there.

03:21:41 BingoBoingo: all tech though is learnable << Not to all people. The engineering students who failed at video conferencing as the other part of my pharmacy school TA pairing.

03:21:45 BingoBoingo: Maybe the beatings were too few?

03:21:54 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes i have no idea. maybe. you think ?

03:21:59 ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: 'twas directed at ascii_lander

03:22:11 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: i do intend to run the assperiment

03:22:23 ascii_lander: assperiment ?

03:22:25 BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: But applies everywhere

03:22:33 mircea_popescu: how does it go ? "honey, you're sixteen now, time to go be a whore in hong kong" ?

03:22:36 ben_vulpes: i suspect the odds are something abhorrent like 1/10 in each event

03:22:46 williamdunne: ascii_lander: There cannot be infinite escalation, and I would bet on the police being on the losing end. Shoot first warrants would end up with the neighbours making potshots at the police

03:23:02 mircea_popescu: ascii_lander nothing wrong with the "no knock" warrant. the point of escalation is escalation.

03:23:05 mircea_popescu: fucking shoot them.

03:23:11 ascii_lander: williamdunne: pot shots at the police are not compatible with glass-house civilization.

03:23:22 mircea_popescu: obviously.

03:23:26 ben_vulpes: if whoring is what she's bound to do she'll go into it well knowledgeable of the various optimizations to be made

03:23:27 ascii_lander: folks who need daily deliveries of $everything - won't be shooting at anyone.

03:23:36 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes how is this bound thing go ?

03:23:52 ben_vulpes: peonage?

03:24:04 ben_vulpes: you tell me, you actually do the binding

03:24:12 mircea_popescu: use numerous words rather than have me guess. uh...

03:24:27 mircea_popescu: wait, so basically your plan is "whatever, i'll feed her, maybe she meets some guy that trains her" ?

03:24:30 ben_vulpes: why though is going off to whore necessary?

03:24:40 mircea_popescu: for teh experience, i imagined.

03:24:45 *: BingoBoingo offers that coyote hindquarters grill out to between 2-3 times the size of roid'd up 'Murican chikken thighs

03:24:49 ascii_lander: ben_vulpes: the essential thing to realize is that mircea_popescu-ine methods only work with mircea_popescu-ine tech leve

03:24:50 ascii_lander: l

03:25:10 ascii_lander: and that attempting them elsewhere may disappoint, like trying to create doped diamond semiconductor in edison's lab

03:25:17 mircea_popescu: i certainly do not propose i am in possession of answers to the world's problems.

03:25:30 mircea_popescu: HOWEVER! I do have some pretty good questions.

03:25:31 ben_vulpes: one does not train daughters in the way one trains wives and girlfriends.

03:25:43 mircea_popescu: so then what's an assperiment ?

03:25:47 ben_vulpes: while there are parallels, they as all must pick their masters.

03:25:50 ben_vulpes: a derpy pun!

03:25:58 ben_vulpes: #bitcoin-assets

03:26:07 mircea_popescu: anyway, the "i'll feed her and we'll see" plan is not really all that bad.

03:26:12 BingoBoingo: How much malbec is ben_vulpes's score tonight?

03:26:21 *: ascii_lander knows of no other algos that make any sense for this

03:26:31 *: ben_vulpes shrugs

03:26:35 ben_vulpes: worked for me

03:26:55 ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: do you want to count the whole day's titration?

03:27:06 *: ascii_lander actually had nothing alcoholic today

03:27:06 ben_vulpes: anyways, at no point did my BAC approach anything interesting.

03:27:18 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes anyway, the problem of women, by and large, is that they're naturally afraid and most environments encourage this and bring them up cowardly.

03:27:20 BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Total + hours is how I usually self-assess

03:27:25 *: ascii_lander was keeping brain working in reserve for… something.

03:27:32 mircea_popescu: a whore's just that : a symbol for "fearless woman".

03:27:35 ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: shouldn't it be total/hours?

03:28:00 BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Nah, + because alliteration with party

03:28:08 ben_vulpes: #bitcoin-parenting

03:28:39 mircea_popescu: they love exposure. can terrorize 1000 people instead of 1 << this is false, ftr.

03:28:45 BingoBoingo: The / is a differnet metric ben_vulpes

03:29:01 ascii_lander: mircea_popescu: how's that

03:29:03 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: "fearless" is what i seek to instill.

03:29:22 BingoBoingo: The / is how drunk you are, The + is cumulative party value

03:29:37 ben_vulpes: [01:49] !up SquirtPrincess << she's probably going to get more out of this than that indianchocolate

03:29:46 ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: aha

03:30:04 *: ascii_lander realizes that he still has a full bag of hundies

03:30:04 ben_vulpes: well call it 1.25 liters and 8 hours

03:30:07 mircea_popescu: ascii_lander do you suppose the german concentration camps "terrorized" anyone ?

03:30:19 ascii_lander: mircea_popescu: nope because wasn't build for it

03:30:36 BingoBoingo: Now there are derived metrics ben_vulpes that can be used to score time, value, and Xtreme of party ben_vulpes

03:30:40 ascii_lander: it wasn't a public impalement in the proper eurasian tradition

03:30:47 ascii_lander: *built

03:31:29 mircea_popescu: ascii_lander but they were put on the youtube of that time

03:31:38 ascii_lander: umm wat no.

03:31:40 mircea_popescu: who in the reich went "great, now terrorizes 1000 instead of 1"

03:31:55 ascii_lander: no they weren't

03:32:03 mircea_popescu: how do you then know of them ?

03:32:11 ascii_lander: come on, 'nacht und nebel' etc

03:32:16 mircea_popescu: no, after.

03:32:18 ascii_lander: we know from the post-war derpage

03:32:21 mircea_popescu: exactly.

03:32:27 mircea_popescu: this is what this is : the usg has been defeated.

03:32:33 mircea_popescu: now we are doing the post-war derpage.

03:32:41 ascii_lander: for a dead horse, it still gallops rather well.

03:32:49 mircea_popescu: the reich did too.

03:33:02 ascii_lander: or is the algo 1) get killed messily by usg 2) while camera rolls 3) ??? 4) profit

03:33:17 ascii_lander: i think i can probably manage 1 and 2

03:33:19 mircea_popescu: actually, if it hadn't had all its industry destroyed and a desperate want of money, it'd have continued practically unabated.

03:33:23 ascii_lander: but someone else will need to do 3 and 4

03:33:25 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 22900 @ 0.00033245 = 7.6131 BTC [+] {3}

03:33:30 mircea_popescu: the usg has similarly had all its industry destroyed and is entirely out of money.

03:33:41 ascii_lander: it isn't out of slaves yet

03:33:48 mircea_popescu: neither was the reich, in 1949

03:33:53 mircea_popescu: heck, the even built a wall!

03:34:01 ascii_lander: the one genuinely convertible wealth

03:34:24 ascii_lander: that wall would still be standing if there weren't a 'pepsi' competing reich to poke at it

03:34:29 BingoBoingo: this is what this is : the usg has been defeated. << Last I checked Will Smith was still president

03:34:32 mircea_popescu: but as to the subject of "slaves" : turns out the dea agents exist to go to parties in columbia and steal the stashes of bitcoin the usms was "auctioning"

03:34:37 mircea_popescu: ya know ? doesn't sound like much slaves to me.

03:34:41 mircea_popescu: more like odoacer slavery.

03:35:08 ascii_lander: the folks with the keys are the actual rulers, 'news at eleven'

04:47:11 ascii_lander: making more << again with atomic dirigible

04:57:19 ascii_lander: all of a sudden - not so friendly

04:57:29 ascii_lander: easy to throw bone that costs nothing

04:57:37 BingoBoingo: ascii_lander: If you can find historical "sundown town" of similar inconvenience to yourself may be worth investment to move rent beams

04:57:41 ascii_lander: as in mircea_popescu's rhyme

05:04:25 ascii_lander: they are, one might correctly presume, somewhat different places.

05:04:44 ascii_lander: in one, for instance, folks sleep ad libitum.

05:05:17 ascii_lander: now, the cat-b-a is still lightyears ahead of, e.g., wash., d.c.

05:05:30 ascii_lander: but important to keep a handle on the picture.

05:06:01 BingoBoingo: ascii_lander: I'll probably move to boring Expat B-A, after financial center of plain 3rd world country. Does not alleviate your need to get a Nyjer Morgan Washington Nationals Jersey for driving cross town.

10:54:02 mircea_popescu: what the fuck would it take for these idiots to think their parents ~their superiors~ ?

10:55:27 mircea_popescu: cuz i suspect this is the deep reason asciilifeform doesn't want offspring. i tell you if the 19 yo snot that imagines he's better than me (like you know, every single fuctkared 19 yo snot "being famous in the bitcoin community" etc that we see here periodically bubble up his idiocy and then six months later fail abjectly and disappear) actually grew up in my house, i'd shoot it to death with blunt toothpicks.

10:56:26 mircea_popescu: which i suppose makes me the perfect storm of a horribru father (as per reddit) : the cross between "absent and physically abusive military father." and "coke snorting, random hooker banging, land development dealing father."

10:56:54 mircea_popescu: fucking hell, they hold whoring against the man that does it but not in favour of the man that doesn't do it ? ball beatings already.

11:00:41 mircea_popescu: "a girl whose sense of worth was so over-inflated it could lift a fleet of Zeppelins." yeah, totally. this is probably the iconic reddit comment. what, buoyancy ? words are words and the world consists of pictures. blips are big, so this simile works!

12:00:04 mircea_popescu: because a zepellin has 0 apparent weight, so it lifts itself ?

The self described peaks of physical fitness can observe the fat logic, but are nearly incapable of realizing most of them are entirely unsocialized. Lulz on both sides.
