00:12:54 bounce: !up ADutchGamer

00:13:11 bounce: !up ADutchGamer

00:13:16 ADutchGamer: thanks

00:13:38 ADutchGamer: is anyone working on the log and bash yet?

00:14:07 ADutchGamer: I'm trying to catch up but all they show is flush dns

00:14:31 ADutchGamer: as in: just htis text: 'flush dns'

00:19:16 *: bounce reloaded named and it still shows up with the same thing. possibly a SOA problem. oh well.

00:19:28 bounce: can stick 178.62.225.203 in hosts for a temporary solution

00:20:59 kakobrekla: not all dns records were updated yet but i put that on anyway so it looks like its not my fault

00:21:19 assbot: Last 1 lines bashed and pending review. ( http://dpaste.com/34QF9NN.txt )

00:21:19 BingoBoingo: !b 1

00:25:38 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5700 @ 0.00075165 = 4.2844 BTC

00:26:50 ADutchGamer: So it's just a matter of waiting a few hours and then it will work?

00:27:10 kakobrekla: or edit hosts file

00:32:45 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 22100 @ 0.00075113 = 16.6 BTC [-] {2}

00:33:30 ADutchGamer: it works now, thanks :)

00:33:43 kakobrekla: yw!

00:38:45 bounce: until the next record change

00:39:01 kakobrekla: :)

00:39:11 bounce: tablet-optimised layouts, how I loathe thee

00:39:25 kakobrekla: doesnt change that often - this is the first time.

00:40:35 bounce: may want to drop ttl a bit beforehand

00:41:32 mircea_popescu: <kakobrekla> changed the engine only to figure out brake was on. << loller

00:42:52 kakobrekla: or proxy it or whatever else but its not like you guys cant take a couple of hrs off

00:45:12 bounce: clearly not

00:47:23 BingoBoingo: Basically Mpex's week+ summer vacation is the equivalent of assbot being down a few hours.

00:47:51 BingoBoingo: Well not assbot, but the logs, bash and other bot ass output

00:47:53 thestringpuller: !ticker m s.mpoe

00:51:20 BingoBoingo: ;;rated assbot

00:51:20 gribble: You rated user assbot on Fri Apr 11 14:42:06 2014, with a rating of 10, and supplied these additional notes: !up Periscope.

00:51:36 BingoBoingo: ;;rate assbot 10 friend

00:51:37 gribble: Rating entry successful. Your rating for user assbot has changed from 10 to 10.

00:54:48 BingoBoingo: This is a way to handle a troublesome District Attourney http://www.alternet.org/outrage-mans-health-insurance-holding-his-liver-transplant-hostage

00:56:28 BingoBoingo: Sent out to sea on the same sort of red tape they put in front of decent people who simply disagree with them on matters of justice

01:02:32 mats_cd03: i'll be your friend. :)

01:06:42 bounce: then this is the end

01:07:14 mats_cd03: there's no end where we're going.

01:28:41 asciilifeform: from navajo link: http://www.latimes.com/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-pennsylvania-eric-frein-update-20140924-story.html

01:28:42 assbot: Trooper-ambush suspect spotted several times in manhunt, police say - LA Times

01:29:11 asciilifeform: this is the n-th desperado, of only the public ones, in kn years, for some pos. int. k.

01:29:24 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: This shutting down an entire Geographic area is what they practiced in Boston, yes?

01:29:29 asciilifeform: SOP by now.

01:33:57 mats_cd03: i wonder if hes enjoying himself

01:34:08 asciilifeform: probably.

01:34:20 asciilifeform: although the arse grenade (if he has any brains, has one) probably chafes.

01:34:46 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 24700 @ 0.0007481 = 18.4781 BTC [-] {2}

01:36:51 TheNewDeal: pardon my ignorance, but logs are in reboot stage?

01:37:22 BingoBoingo: TheNewDeal: DNS is repropagating

01:37:43 BingoBoingo: kako put on his surgeon's gown today

01:39:56 asciilifeform: 'Frein may see the manhunt as a game, police said, and likely has supplies and a bunker hidden in the woods. Police have found soiled diapers, Serbian cigarettes and other clues that he remains in the area, but are proceeding with caution in part because they believe he may have explosives.'

01:40:15 asciilifeform: mega-lulzies

01:42:46 asciilifeform: 'Authorities said Friday that the hard drive of a computer used by Frein provides evidence he had been planning an attack for years. They said Frein's Internet searches included sites on how to avoid police manhunts.'

01:43:19 asciilifeform: menu: herr frein is 1) an imbecile 2) elementarily framed 3) fictional persona

01:43:55 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5111 @ 0.00074774 = 3.8217 BTC [-]

01:43:58 bounce: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Matthew_Frein nice list of toys they're throwing after him

01:43:58 assbot: Eric Matthew Frein - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

01:47:04 asciilifeform: after someone.

01:47:58 asciilifeform: http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/topten

01:47:58 assbot: FBI — Ten Most Wanted

01:48:02 asciilifeform: ^ third place. nice.

01:49:47 BingoBoingo: "Authorities speculate that Frein, driving with his lights off on Pennsylvania Route 402, failed to see a T-junction and drove into the swamp, then may have traveled 15 to 20 miles on foot to Canadensis, Pennsylvania, where his parents live." << Lesson here

01:51:27 asciilifeform: lesson << ditch a car, confuse idiot bureaucrats ?

01:52:40 BingoBoingo: Lights might make a car visible, but crashing it because you kept them off, suspect!

01:52:56 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: care to hazard a guess re: the diapers?

01:53:31 asciilifeform: u.s. army snipers have been known to wear them, now that i recall.

01:53:49 bounce: didn't that stalking astronaut get caught with diapers due to long drive?

01:54:25 BingoBoingo: the diapers are probably a cargo cult thing, because the pros do it that way

01:54:37 TheNewDeal: So on bitbet, I know if you send a tx to an address for an open bet, the address is reserved for you for the entirety of the bet. But is the addr supposed to hold the btc until the bet closes, or no?

01:54:38 asciilifeform: that's the intended implication, at any rate.

01:55:20 BingoBoingo: But if you are driving a car around the backwoods under the cover of night, use the fucking headlights

01:55:35 asciilifeform: 'The Monroe County District Attorney's Office filed 15 search warrants since the hunt for Frein began about two weeks ago to search various buildings, but Bivens declined to comment on the warrants.'

01:55:39 asciilifeform: aha now some meat.

01:56:32 asciilifeform: 'The Monroe County District Attorney's Office filed 15 search warrants since the hunt for Frein began about two weeks ago to search various buildings, but Bivens declined to comment on the warrants. He acknowledged the substantial, and growing, cost to state and federal agencies.'

01:56:48 asciilifeform: anyone here ever read eric frank russell's 'wasp' ?

01:57:00 asciilifeform: damn broken paste

01:57:08 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 12813 @ 0.0007472 = 9.5739 BTC [-] {2}

01:57:13 asciilifeform: 'Bivens estimated that the force hunting Frein has included the "high hundreds to 1,000" members of law enforcement agencies.'

01:57:36 BingoBoingo: For all we know Frein is just a Richard Jewell who has simply retreated to jack off in the woods for a few weeks and has no idea what is going on.

01:58:09 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 4690 @ 0.00074826 = 3.5093 BTC [+]

01:58:29 bounce: they're having a field day, then

02:00:01 bounce: I suspect an expert would gather a few good trackers and catch the guy in a week with ~30 people or so.

02:00:12 decimation: asciilifeform: so I tried to install gentoo in a vm last night, was disappointed that it wanted me to install systemd. apparently one should install 'minimal' and then bootstrap software stack

02:00:33 asciilifeform: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/26/diaper-sniper-eric-frein_n_5887694.html

02:00:34 assbot: Eric Frein Manhunt: 'Diaper Sniper' Reportedly Phoned Parents (LIVE UPDATES)

02:00:37 asciilifeform: ^ svd!

02:00:54 asciilifeform: decimation: the fortress falls!

02:01:42 asciilifeform: decimation: although - wiki indicates is optional. did you ask for 'gnome' and forgot?

02:02:03 decimation: no I installed 'kde' profile

02:02:17 decimation: in retrospect I should have installed hardened/minimal

02:02:35 asciilifeform: quite a few things have been trying to suck it in under the cover of 'dependencies'

02:02:48 decimation: if the guy is such a brilliant woodsman why is he leaving trash for others to find?

02:02:58 TheNewDeal: ;;bc,stats

02:02:58 asciilifeform: decimation: because he's fictional.

02:02:59 BingoBoingo: I might have to read 'Wasp'

02:03:01 gribble: Current Blocks: 322863 | Current Difficulty: 3.466142592397694E10 | Next Difficulty At Block: 324575 | Next Difficulty In: 1712 blocks | Next Difficulty In About: 1 week, 5 days, 7 hours, 35 minutes, and 49 seconds | Next Difficulty Estimate: 33502089229.0 | Estimated Percent Change: -3.34475

02:03:08 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: wasp << highly recommended.

02:03:17 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: especially for you.

02:03:28 decimation: asciilifeform: yeah that appears to be the situation. I don't understand how a gui desktop 'requires' a particular init system

02:03:38 asciilifeform: decimation: because... and this reminds me:

02:03:53 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu, others who know who flondor was

02:03:55 BingoBoingo: decimation: systemd temps the desktop systems with login handling

02:03:59 asciilifeform: perhaps it is time for a lustration list.

02:04:02 decimation: although according to the boycottsystemd webpage, it sounds like systemd 'wants' to take over much of unix userland

02:04:04 asciilifeform: kept, possibly, in the deeds register

02:04:39 asciilifeform: of all the sniveling shilling shits who took part in hearbleed insertion, propagation of 'systemd', the like.

02:05:17 asciilifeform: these people are walking around, alive, and worst of all - continuing to churn out code. which unwitting chumps will actually use.

02:05:21 decimation: I nominate http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lennart_Poettering

02:05:21 assbot: Lennart Poettering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

02:05:38 decimation: pulseaudio, systemd, avahi, all turds

02:05:41 asciilifeform: it's time for the 'nazi playing cards'

02:05:45 asciilifeform: with names, faces.

02:06:37 asciilifeform: lennart p. isn't even a top candidate for the playing cards, because just about everyone already knows what he is.

02:06:46 mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> although the arse grenade (if he has any brains, has one) probably chafes. << why ?

02:06:58 mircea_popescu: what's the most they're going to do ? pay 20k a year for his support ?

02:07:08 asciilifeform: the hidden little shitgnomes like author of heartbleed - they are the ones who needs the lethal sunlight rays the most.

02:07:38 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: notice i said 'arse grenade' not 'cyanide tooth.'

02:08:01 bounce: you think heartbleed was intentional?

02:08:02 asciilifeform: specifically in light of the historic re-enactment role he's supposedly playing.

02:08:18 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> what's the most they're going to do ? pay 20k a year for his support ? << Incarceration, especially at the federal level is rarely so inexpensive for the jailers

02:08:19 asciilifeform: bounce:

02:08:21 asciilifeform: !s miracles

02:08:21 assbot: 46 results for 'miracles' : http://search.bitcoin-assets.com/?q=miracles

02:08:31 decimation: asciilifeform: the next step: somehow get a unix distribution that completely excludes contributions from the lustration list

02:08:37 asciilifeform: decimation: yes.

02:08:58 kakobrekla: and then we can start pretending.

02:09:19 asciilifeform: bounce: i posit that it must be presumed intentional. the shitgnomes hide behind the impossibility of logically proving their guilt.

02:10:40 decimation: the problem is that nearly all hardware vendors would be on the list too

02:10:52 asciilifeform: decimation: gotta start somewhere.

02:11:22 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 12960 @ 0.0007495 = 9.7135 BTC [+]

02:11:38 bounce: we could use better hardware, too

02:11:47 asciilifeform: decimation: at the moment, proven, proud, unrepentant вредители are 'respected faces of the komyooniti', doing as they please.

02:12:16 bounce: but an overly large list would be counter-productive; a valid concern.

02:12:19 kakobrekla: nah. basically everyone should just drop their keyboards and stop coding until there exists a platform where not guilty by default (of using it)

02:13:07 kakobrekla: dare to continue as is, you will, sooner or later, find yourself on the list.

02:13:32 decimation: kakobrekla: a worthy dream, but the problem is that if everyone did that, then nobody would make such a platform

02:13:42 *: bounce didn't catch on to hiding behind lame excuses with the openssl folks, but if so that ought to be enough to get the s/w booted entirely, not just revamped.

02:14:14 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: if the item i am presently working on is not easily provable honest to an educated reader, then i will deserve to be placed on the list.

02:14:45 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: and, in fact, should be presumed dead, and the fellow walking around with my key - ought to go on list.

02:14:49 bounce: tangentially, shouldn't it be feasible to get decent performance out of a suitably open-and-accessible-microcode cpu running on some fpga or other these days?

02:15:05 asciilifeform: bounce: all the extant fpga have tightly closed architecture

02:15:17 decimation: yeah there's a spectrum between 'honest mistake' and 'massive fuck-up'

02:15:19 asciilifeform: bounce: search channel logs re: at least three separate discussions of how this came to be

02:15:47 kakobrekla: and heres the fourth.

02:15:50 bounce: you'd at least have access from the gate design on up, already a bit more than COTS CPUs give you

02:16:22 decimation: bounce: ultimately you are still trusting the fpga maker

02:16:36 asciilifeform: bounce: nope. most fpga work is carried out in units considerably larger than 'gate', from considerations of efficiency.

02:16:46 asciilifeform: you get a supply of adders, shifters, multipliers, etc.

02:17:08 decimation: they have little 'units' of logic glued together, with a little look-up table to determine how each one functions

02:17:33 bounce: boo. oh well. back to ttl then (magic-1.org)

02:17:53 asciilifeform: the vendors (there are exactly two worth mentioning, 'xilinx' and 'altera' - the others sell miniscule turdlets, most often with zero linux toolchain support) also play fast & loose with the word 'gate'

02:18:02 asciilifeform: counting a shifter as 'xxx gates' worth

02:19:42 asciilifeform: fpga is still interesting

02:19:52 asciilifeform: partly because, the amount of damage a dishonest vendor can do is actually minimal

02:19:55 asciilifeform: as far as i can tell

02:20:07 asciilifeform: let's say you purchase an fpga from satan.

02:20:11 bounce: printable electronics getting closer, should be an interestin proof-of-concept though I wouldn't expect to even get full mipsen out of it.

02:20:19 bounce: s/tin/&g/

02:20:35 asciilifeform: bounce: 'printable' is a word you can safely place in your spam filter.

02:21:11 asciilifeform: it's a leper's bell for grantsmanship and chumpatronics of the most tedious sort.

02:21:54 asciilifeform: none of the 'printing' brouhaha places integrated circuit any closer to manufacture in your kitchen.

02:21:59 decimation: satan's fpga could have a bugged embedded cpu

02:22:03 asciilifeform: let's say it does.

02:22:06 asciilifeform: now what.

02:22:33 decimation: satan would have to know a great deal about you design

02:22:37 asciilifeform: yes.

02:22:48 decimation: satan would give up and bug the toolchain

02:23:01 asciilifeform: in fact, even if satan lifts the entire netlist of your design, he will have to sweat a great deal to understand which bits to flip.

02:23:17 decimation: thatnisntrue

02:23:30 asciilifeform: if satan is merely listening to your i/o, this is a listening device in the ordinary sense, and not really fpga-specific diddling

02:23:33 decimation: heh s/n/ /

02:24:59 asciilifeform: likewise, when people ponder 'chip boobytraps' they are normally thinking of a one-transistor turdlet that creates an 'evil instruction' or whatnot

02:25:21 asciilifeform: an unexpected cpu in the middle of fpga LUT fabric would stand out even under optical microscope.

02:25:26 asciilifeform: so the turd has to be subtle

02:25:45 asciilifeform: what can one accomplish on fpga, knowing nothing about your opponent's future purpose for it, with a small turd ?

02:25:59 asciilifeform: (i don't insist there is no interesting answer to this question, just confess that i don't know one)

02:26:37 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 46803 @ 0.00074671 = 34.9483 BTC [-] {2}

02:27:00 decimation: yeah point taken. presumably satan will have your netlist anyway, if you want your part to be open to inspection

02:27:00 asciilifeform: i can take an educated guess, however.

02:27:07 asciilifeform: it is virtually impossible now to buy a pure fpga.

02:27:17 asciilifeform: almost always there are 'convenient' things rolled in - like pci-e support

02:27:21 asciilifeform: or sdram controllers

02:27:27 decimation: or serdes or cpu

02:27:30 asciilifeform: or.

02:27:59 asciilifeform: it would be fairly simple to include a pattern match for 'magic bus cycle' or 'magic instruction' on built-in-cpu that will, e.g., short supply to ground.

02:28:01 asciilifeform: release magic smoke

02:28:39 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7647 @ 0.00074656 = 5.7089 BTC [-] {2}

02:28:45 asciilifeform: to make long story short, there are exactly two vendors of 'high-density' fpga, and their products are almost exactly alike - more so even than 'coca cola' and 'pepsi.'

02:28:56 asciilifeform: both, afaik, market primarily to usg and subsidiaries

02:29:17 asciilifeform: 'xilinx' in particular brags of 'nsa certified' whatevers.

02:29:40 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 23253 @ 0.00074645 = 17.3572 BTC [-] {2}

02:29:48 decimation: http://press.xilinx.com/2011-08-31-NSA-Approved-Defense-Grade-Spartan-6Q-FPGA-in-Production-for-Highest-Level-Cryptographic-Capabilities-Strengthens-Xilinx-Secure-Leadership

02:29:49 assbot: NSA Approved Defense-Grade Spartan-6Q FPGA in Production for Highest Level Cryptographic Capabilities Strengthens Xilinx Secure Leadership - Aug 31, 2011

02:29:54 asciilifeform: neither is 'open' in any sense whatsoever.

02:31:49 decimation: "Key to the NSA's approval is the ability of the Spartan-6Q device to isolate user functionality within a single device while maintaining tamper proofing. The NSA completed a fail-safe analysis effort on the Spartan-6Q family to confirm that the individual regions of the FPGA are isolated from each other in the event of failure. "

02:32:34 asciilifeform: decimation: understand that this had no bearing on usg-triggered surprises.

02:33:22 decimation: no, and I think that particular chip isn't available to regular humans

02:33:33 asciilifeform: decimation: yes, bureaucrats demand some electrical tests to show that 'black' won't short to 'red' by accident.

02:33:54 asciilifeform: decimation: available. 'ebay' for example.

02:33:58 asciilifeform: buy as many as you want.

02:34:36 mircea_popescu: soiled diapers, Serbian cigarettes <<< dude wtf.

02:35:09 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: Official Truth holds that he's a ww2 reenactor gone off the spools

02:35:19 decimation: wow you can buy cheap fgpa dev boards on ebay

02:35:29 asciilifeform: decimation: i've never bought them anywhere else.

02:35:51 mircea_popescu: i don't get it. so you just take a piss.

02:35:58 mircea_popescu: why would you wear devices to make the piss cling to you ?!

02:36:03 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: u.s. army issues diapers. ask them - not me

02:36:29 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> why would you wear devices to make the piss cling to you ?! << This is why I suspect a bit of cargo cult happening

02:36:33 asciilifeform: mats_cd03 << did you wear them ?

02:36:54 decimation: it is amusing that ebay has effectively become 'amazon for shenzhen'

02:37:01 mats_cd03: yes

02:37:23 mircea_popescu: so there's this theatre right outside my windo, where a derpy guy does i dunno what dances.

02:37:32 asciilifeform: mats_cd03: what's the rationale for diapers ?

02:37:34 mircea_popescu: there's been teenage girl wailings pretty much non stop for an hour

02:37:39 mats_cd03: diapers + baby wipes are god's gift to men in the field

02:37:40 mircea_popescu: what the fuck, minor celebrity

02:37:42 kakobrekla: 'amazon for shenzhen' < isnt that aliexpress or smth

02:37:48 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8900 @ 0.00074881 = 6.6644 BTC [+]

02:37:51 mircea_popescu: mats_cd03 why would you wear diapers ?

02:37:53 mircea_popescu: the wipes i ee.

02:37:55 decimation: I guess I haven't used either of those

02:38:17 mats_cd03: my usual undergarments were soiled and crusty after 2 weeks in the field

02:38:20 decimation: whenever I load an alibaba page it makes me feel certain I'm about to be scammed

16:28:40 mircea_popescu: which ?

16:28:46 mats_cd03: i guess there are going to be a lot of gay chinese men in that generation

16:29:40 mircea_popescu: you're using some sort of prior here im not privy to. say wut ?

16:30:07 chetty: lots of 'extra' men makes for good wars

16:30:25 mircea_popescu: it could.

16:30:48 mircea_popescu: china is traditionally a sort of dog vomit (the fungus). it doesn't really war.

16:32:32 chetty: dont think the issue of lots of extra menn has come up before, might twist traditions a bit

16:32:38 mircea_popescu: true

16:36:10 chetty: wow, there might actually be something new under the sun

16:36:15 mats_cd03: a society designed for rigor mortis, in some ways

16:37:04 bounce: meh. I thought that china /wanted/ a smaller population which naturally includes a smaller workforce. so how that's now a problem eludes me. unless "economic growth" is part of your religion, perhaps.

16:38:22 mircea_popescu: bounce you will have to appreciate idiot western peoples, even without any help from the propaganda machine, automatically interpret phenomena in a certain key.

16:38:56 mircea_popescu: so you know, arab women are unhappy because they don't live in the downtown on foodstamps, which has to be better than what they got because what else is the speaker doing there ?!

16:39:15 mircea_popescu: and certainly the chinese have "problems" they never heard of. similarly to how putin "doesn't understand how reality works".

16:43:53 chetty: well the age spread of the population may cause some issues, even if you ignore economic growth

16:44:08 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 18550 @ 0.00075141 = 13.9387 BTC [+]

16:44:51 bounce: on another note, we've had quite a lot of skillfully-hidden-in-the-numbers inflation that's well above the official growth rates. thus depleting both savings and hiding an effective economic decline

16:46:19 bounce: also, we are running headlong into the aging workforce problem now; china has a while to fix it and by that time can steal all those smart carebots the japanese are building

16:46:41 chetty: lmao, not so hidded, unless you tend to believe usg published numbers

16:46:54 bounce: I think china's sitting prettier than we are.

16:47:02 chetty: s/hidden

16:47:19 mircea_popescu: bounce china is sitting prettier than everyone for the very simple reason that it has the absolute lead in all technology.

16:47:31 mircea_popescu: it doesn't cost THEM fifty trillion to try and fail to build a new airplane.

16:48:01 bounce: if by "lead" meaning "has a copy of the plans and can cherry-pick the ones that work", yes

16:48:03 mircea_popescu: moreover if it does, it can pay cash.

16:48:29 mircea_popescu: no, i mean the us has transferred all its technology there in exchange for cheap labour but under condition it shares the tech

16:48:35 mircea_popescu: whereas china has not nor will ever do the same.

16:48:55 mircea_popescu: if you pour from a to b but never from b to a, you can bet your ears b's gonna be fuller.

16:49:30 mats_cd03: an interesting theory

16:49:36 mircea_popescu: quite far from a theory, this.

16:49:57 mircea_popescu: observable phenomena for > 30 years by now.

16:50:27 bounce: at the same time they have a serious plaggiarism problem (they copied "publish or perish" too, bwahahaha) so long term they're risking stagnation

16:50:30 mats_cd03: you perceive the flow isn't imperceptibly happening in the other direction, too

16:50:38 mircea_popescu: and china is liable to continue on the course that brought it success, humbly begging for what it wants, rather than suddenly swich to the course that sunk the us.

16:50:55 mircea_popescu: even if the us imagines that now that china has the better car it should drive it the same way it drove its own, right into a wall.

16:51:13 mircea_popescu: china's parents woudn't approve, and moreover china doesn't want to be either stupid or in possesison of a car wreckage.

16:51:45 mircea_popescu: bounce perhaps not very creative, yes. perhaps that may matter. if it will, it won't be this century.

16:51:57 mircea_popescu: the romans lived a millenium out of carefuly implementing the greek ideas.

16:52:12 chetty: inventiveness is not a high point of china, doubt they will come up with any new ideas

16:52:16 mircea_popescu: careful management and patient attention is good enough for a lifetime.

16:52:59 mircea_popescu: chetty i will tell you one new idea they came up with. they made the astoundingly daring move of organising their defense on sane grounds. china is surrounded by about a million rockets.

16:53:18 mircea_popescu: there's no way to effectualy destroy these, and there's no way the us aircraft carriers could survive an hour in a hostile china sea.

16:53:23 bounce: it'll be a while but it'll be stuck a goodly while too. a thousand years of stagnation they've already had.

16:53:25 mircea_popescu: that's novel enough for their needs.

16:54:07 chetty: well I wouldnt call it novel, but it does seem they read history better than most

16:54:18 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 13650 @ 0.00075146 = 10.2574 BTC [+] {2}

16:54:22 mircea_popescu: (and europe pushing china out of their galileo thing was incredibly stupid, but then again europe is chiefly remembered in history for astounding stupidity)

16:54:34 mircea_popescu: chetty see ? what's in a novelty.

16:54:43 mircea_popescu: people can get by for a while just making good use of the history book.

16:55:19 mats_cd03: the memory of your enemy on your shores is something that stays vivid for a long time

16:56:41 mircea_popescu: bounce stagnation isn't as bad as you may think.

16:57:39 mats_cd03: ive been thinking about space exploration. are we going to carve up mars into nations? or, perhaps further into the future, every nation gets its own planet

16:57:52 bounce: in the current set-up with deliberate inflation it's... not a good idea.

16:58:00 mats_cd03: think of the experiments we could perform over millenia.

16:58:01 mircea_popescu: mats_cd03 are you aware mars is inhospitable ?

16:58:23 mats_cd03: yes

16:59:23 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 14850 @ 0.00075141 = 11.1584 BTC [-]

16:59:25 mircea_popescu: so then why mars specifically ? why not real estate 5000 feet underground.

17:00:54 bounce: "off-site backups"

17:01:40 bounce: also, "reaching for the stars" is much more appealing than digging hobbit holes

17:02:23 chetty: people wont go 'to the stars' until they stop squabbling over pieces of pie on earth, ie never

17:02:25 mircea_popescu: that may well not matter hm ?

17:03:29 asciilifeform: off-planet is appealing precisely because of the cost, for enemy, of following you there.

17:04:06 mircea_popescu: stotting behaviour ?

17:04:15 asciilifeform: at least.

17:04:25 mircea_popescu: unless there's a hospitable planet somewhere,

17:04:39 mircea_popescu: or unless earth goes to shit to the degree of making mars look like freshly shaved virgin pussy

17:04:43 mircea_popescu: there's no stars bs.

17:05:10 mircea_popescu: you could live on the antarctic right now, if you fancy paying 2k for a bottle of fizz.

17:05:11 mats_cd03: close enough to menace earth and there might even be resources

17:05:23 asciilifeform: antarctic - not automatic sovereign.

17:05:25 mircea_popescu: fuck, you could live in that "gulch" real estate scam.

17:05:29 asciilifeform: within range of derps' weapons.

17:05:39 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform tell you what, you know what an indentured servant is ?

17:05:46 asciilifeform: certainly.

17:05:49 mircea_popescu: no way in fuck you're going to be a "sovereign" on a planet you just colonised.

17:05:59 mircea_popescu: unless you make your own crops and your own space stations...

17:06:04 mircea_popescu: think early us. what sovereign ?

17:06:04 asciilifeform: naturally

17:06:22 mircea_popescu: yes well, people don't undergo centuriesd of expense to fulfil a cartoon dream.

17:06:34 asciilifeform: interestingly, no one, afaik, has mentioned the solid prerequisite of fixing RuBisCo enzyme.

17:06:34 mircea_popescu: unless the planet is naturally hospitable, unless there's an angle somewhere, not happening.

17:07:26 *: asciilifeform has eyes, sees that it isn't happening, quite a few missing pieces with nowhere to come from

17:07:54 *: asciilifeform but definitely grasps the appeal

17:08:16 chetty: unless of course some friendly aliens drop in and give us a ride :D

17:08:59 bounce: notice how india got there for less budget than that movie. and less than a third of a single "cheap, reusable" shuttle launch

17:09:21 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the inescapable moral of story is that it is much cheaper to launch the rockets - horizontally - and clean up earth from pests

17:09:33 mats_cd03: i wonder if they used duct tape.

17:09:35 mircea_popescu: bounce right, "<mircea_popescu> it doesn't cost THEM fifty trillion to try and fail to build a new airplane."

17:09:58 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no need for rockets. you don't kill cockroaches with a .5

17:10:01 mircea_popescu: even if you have one.

17:10:12 bounce: nobody's complaining that dollars are buying so much less in the developed world, though

17:11:15 mircea_popescu: orly ?

17:15:12 mats_cd03: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/vatican-paedophilia-scandal-archbishop-jozef-wesolowski-stored-over-100000-child-porn-videos-1467410

17:15:12 assbot: Vatican Paedophilia Scandal: Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski Stored Over 100,000 Child Porn Videos

17:15:59 mats_cd03: highest ranking pedo ever

17:19:12 bounce: there's some outsourcing (and grumbling the work coming back is sub-par) and some grumbling about "jobs lost" and such. but the spacex thing is relatively recent, and I haven't really noticed much drive to cut the costs of the various wars being waged, for example. it's just... lower taxes, spend more, run up a bigger debt bill.

17:20:34 mircea_popescu: so nobody is complaining. like, i can hire someone for 2k a month because they won't complain.

17:20:43 mircea_popescu: i'll just say hey, 2k a month was plenty 20 years ago

17:20:47 mircea_popescu: and they'll say sure, ample.

17:23:50 bounce: what does the walmart employee make, across their three separate jobs minus the transport costs to get from one job to another? also, why do they have three jobs and still need food stamps?

17:23:52 chetty: http://dailysignal.com/2014/09/27/michelle-obama-wrong-trash-america-un/

17:23:52 assbot: Why Michelle Obama Was Wrong to Trash America at the UN

17:25:20 chetty: The next time Michelle Obama stands before an audience of countries where women are truly discriminated against?some forced to cover their entire bodies or have a male guardian with them in public?and complains that America struggles with ?harmful cultural norms that tell women how they are expected to look and act,? forgive me if I?m a little embarrassed.

17:25:27 mircea_popescu: how could michelle obama have been wrong ?!

17:25:33 mircea_popescu: don't these people know she';s black ?

17:25:35 mircea_popescu: AND a woman ?

17:25:41 mircea_popescu: fucking mysogyracists

17:54:10 mats_cd03: nothing really, just curious if you've tried it
