15:34:14 punkman: or honeytrap

18:05:21 assbot: K foundation burn a million quid - YouTube ... ( http://bit.ly/2yF1JBz )

18:12:53 punkman: should have launched an altcoin with proof of burn

18:13:56 funkenstein_: :D ahead of their time

18:14:01 asciilifeform: snoar, same as mailing crate of donation to centralbank

18:14:36 funkenstein_: lol that might also still generate conversation 20 years later

18:15:09 punkman: "It's a hard one to explain to your kids and it doesn't get any easier. I wish I could explain why I did it so people would understand."

18:15:26 asciilifeform: in usa , the mint shreds, rather than burns, old benjies, and ( at least last i saw ) you could buy the confetti in the souvenir shop

18:15:58 punkman: "I remember once, one of my children came home from school and said 'somebody told me in the playground that you once burned a hundred quid - is it true?' "I said, 'I wish that was true!'"

18:17:03 funkenstein_: apparently it took some serious effort for those blokes

18:18:21 asciilifeform: one interesting hypothetical puzzle re usa mint is, how many bags of this confetti you would have to buy, to become guilty of cocaine possession ( which has threshhold of 'machine-detectable', iirc, rather than 'palpable dose' )

18:20:19 funkenstein_: that's up to the local fascists as always

18:24:51 funkenstein_: anyway a few britons brought that to my attention at the local pub tonight, made for interesting conversation

18:29:05 funkenstein_: sill only 13 btc over at 1bitcoineater

18:30:09 asciilifeform: 1 ) make a vanity '1bitcoineater...' 2) get idjits to believe that privkey for it doesn't exist, they send coin 3) profit!1111

18:57:00 punkman: asciilifeform: I don't think that's possible https://blockchain.info/address/1BitcoinEaterAddressDontSendf59kuE

18:57:01 assbot: Bitcoin Address 1BitcoinEaterAddressDontSendf59kuE ... ( http://bit.ly/2wS2kT2 )

18:57:25 asciilifeform: punkman: where in the linked page is the proof of the impossibility ?

18:58:30 asciilifeform: it's a , what, DUP HASH160 PUSHDATA(20)[759d6677091e973b9e9d99f19c68fbf43e3f05f9] EQUALVERIFY CHECKSIG

18:58:48 asciilifeform: got the magic bitstring ? can spend. like anything else.

19:00:02 asciilifeform: original sender to 'eater' could very well have it. and nobody will know until the coins move ( could be next century, whenver. )

19:02:37 asciilifeform: note that the usual discussions revolve around cost of brute-forcing hash -- which is entirely irrelevant

20:29:55 *: jurov just stumbled upon this incredible feature: https://vi.stackexchange.com/questions/4613/why-does-vim-allow-integer-division-by-zero
