01:40:59 ben_vulpes: thats downright poorly engineered

01:41:51 ben_vulpes: poor guy has nothing to do and so derps in public when the forum's out

01:43:46 BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: It's all about the stuffing. Stuffing is always better than the Turkey. This year picked up an extra pound and a half of hearts to go in it.

01:45:01 ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: oooh hearts

01:45:40 ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: actually its all about not doing anything

01:45:55 kakobrekla: but who is shopping then ?

01:46:20 kakobrekla: actually log is kinda shortish today

06:22:28 nubbins`: you can get napa cabbage anywhere

06:22:33 nubbins`: some places call it "chinese cabbage"

06:22:53 nubbins`: well. i mean, you can pickle and ferment anything, but i doubt regular cabbage would be any good

06:22:59 punkman: I don't think I've seen it here

06:23:14 Vexual: asian grocer perhaps

06:23:22 punkman: no such thing

06:28:13 nubbins`: it's this cheap, pungent, thin brown liquid

06:28:29 nubbins`: made from fermented anchovies

06:28:37 nubbins`: it's like 1200mg sodium per tsp

06:29:12 Vexual: anchovies will do

06:29:24 Vexual: from a jar or can

06:49:15 mats_cd03: I'm giving up my remaining vices - TV and pot - as my thanksgiving resolution

06:50:18 mats_cd03: I know its not a thing. whatever.

06:50:34 punkman: what you gonna do without any vices

06:51:59 mats_cd03: learn asm and c until my brain melts

06:51:59 BingoBoingo: What the fuck is a thanksgiving resolution. Thanksgiving is the holiday where you embrace your vices!

06:52:27 mats_cd03: and some sysadmin skills to relieve the mind fuck

06:53:54 BingoBoingo: mats_cd03: What ever happened to food coma and not giving a fuck?

06:54:12 Vexual: yeah, what are you gonna do with all the money?

06:54:34 mats_cd03: imma buy some buttcoins

06:55:31 *: BingoBoingo has yet to stop alternating cycle of sleeping and gorging himself on a mixture of corbread and chicken hearts

06:55:55 BingoBoingo: mats_cd03: So the procedure for that is you but up a bid and see who bites.

06:56:11 BingoBoingo: If no one bites you go to more and more desperate venues

06:56:24 BingoBoingo: And eventually someone meets your price

06:56:51 BingoBoingo: This is how buttcoins went from 10 BTC to less than a tenth of a BTC

06:57:19 mats_cd03: i suspect the price will remain low for another year as the waterfall continues

06:58:02 BingoBoingo: Buttcoin price can only go lower unless you have some sort of urgent marketing need

06:59:06 mats_cd03: im bored and i want to leave boston

07:08:13 Vexual: how are you gonna brush up without tv?

07:08:17 mats_cd03: dunno if ill ever try to be fully literate in chinese though...doesn't seem worth it...i can live with verbal mastery of mandarin and cantonese

07:08:50 Vexual: go visit bejing

07:08:59 mats_cd03: i was thinking pimsleur mp3s but that's a good point

07:09:04 BingoBoingo: Chinese is like english, soft, squishy... Mastery is very elusive

07:09:17 Vexual: learn it on the menu

07:10:02 BingoBoingo: And not because the language is hard, but because the way the language has been twisted are so stupid.

07:11:18 mats_cd03: i can understand mandarin at a sixth grade level and generally fill in the gaps with educated guesses

07:12:10 mats_cd03: the tricky part is speaking it, i often sub in canto words by abusing tones and i don't realize im doing it

07:13:24 BingoBoingo: Well, how else are pidgins born?

07:14:59 BingoBoingo: I mean can you find a single Texan capable of speaking the Queen's English?

07:15:03 BingoBoingo: !up Vexual

07:15:27 BingoBoingo: Or a Queen capable of speaking Shakespeare's English?

07:17:11 mats_cd03: i ought to have taken some linguistics courses in univ

07:17:37 BingoBoingo: I never did

07:17:41 mats_cd03: and on that subject, can anyone recommend a good primer for IPA?

07:18:07 BingoBoingo: Any Vocal music textbook that doesn't suck a bag of dicks should be fine

07:18:52 mats_cd03: i don't know shit about music either

07:19:16 mats_cd03: i think ill get to that when im retired, though...

07:19:43 BingoBoingo: The best time to retire was Yesterday...

07:23:26 mats_cd03: i wonder if im the youngest asset-er

07:25:10 BingoBoingo: I doubt it

07:25:24 BingoBoingo: Depending on defintion of asset-er

07:25:47 mats_cd03: inside L2 i suppose

07:27:13 BingoBoingo: Maybe?

07:32:42 mats_cd03: <25 over here.

07:35:24 BingoBoingo: Still, there's prolly younger.

07:35:38 BingoBoingo: I mean how old is assbot?

07:39:17 mats_cd03: assbot's pretty young, we try not to sexualize her

07:41:25 BingoBoingo: Wait, just because assbot has an ass you assume girl???

07:42:06 BingoBoingo: For Srs though there's people who pop in here who have yet to finish High school

07:43:12 mats_cd03: i refer to all bots in the feminine

07:45:28 mats_cd03: they're smarter than me, remember everything, and i have persistent nightmares one will kill me someday

07:46:08 BingoBoingo: lol

07:49:44 hanbot: mats_cd03 prudent :D

07:51:57 *: BingoBoingo assumes inevitable death regarless of bot attitude, because the avians will eventually depose the reptilians

07:55:15 *: BingoBoingo predicts that even if crocasaurus defeats Anne Hathaway more avians will come motivated by vengance.

07:58:51 mats_cd03: interstellar was p disappointing

08:01:08 *: BingoBoingo about to return to food coma, will be pretty disappoint if this whole bitcoin thing was a Turkey induced halucination

08:02:07 BingoBoingo: Then again if it was a turkey induced halucination Bitcoin wouldn't exist and I could learn C to become Satoshi.

08:02:26 *: BingoBoingo dunno how he feels about contracting Lou Gehrig's disease...

08:02:50 mats_cd03: watch out for gavin in the second iteration

08:06:16 BingoBoingo: I'll make sure commits from names begining in g lead to memory leaks

08:07:25 BingoBoingo: Maybe I'll look for a signature curve less vulnerable to brute force and MORE vulnerable to shitty random nonces.

08:07:44 BingoBoingo: Or maybe this is real life.

08:08:26 BingoBoingo: Should find out in 12 hours

15:46:05 adlai: mircea_popescu: but this is a level beyond, this is "I'll pay you to work for me. Here, you see this bill in my wallet? It's yours already, I promise!"

15:46:24 mircea_popescu: so ? isn't this how the usg works already ?

15:46:59 mircea_popescu: people are just doing what they're used to, and then they're surprised when it doesn't work. it didn't work before, either, but hey, still in denial about that part.

15:47:09 adlai: true, at least danny b doesn't execute shareholders without due process

15:47:19 mircea_popescu: (you see this money in "your" 401k in my wallet ? it's yours i promise!)

15:47:22 adlai: (that we know of)

15:47:49 decimation: works the same way with the FDIC and us banks

15:48:36 mircea_popescu: quite. and with germany's gold.

15:49:19 decimation: heh. in that case germany 'tried' to actually take the 'bill' from the 'wallet', turns out they couldn't and just gave up

15:49:47 mircea_popescu: right ?

15:49:56 mircea_popescu: so it works EXACTLY the same, they're just doing what they're used to

15:50:05 mircea_popescu: except bitcoin makes it plainly obvious in its stupidity.

15:51:47 adlai: we'll see how things work out for germany in a decade. who knows, maybe all that gold being bought on the open market will pay off nicely for germany by the time they receive it

15:52:53 mircea_popescu: ...

15:53:09 mircea_popescu: you srsly just went "we'll see how it goes for employees, maybe 50 btc in danny's wallet is a great thing for them" ?

15:53:29 mircea_popescu: what is this, persistent braindamage ?

15:56:04 mircea_popescu: decimation here's the thing with scammers, in bitcoin or otherwise : to the chump, a "claim" is worth as much as it can be pretended into being worth. and so, to chump-germany or to random tardstalk "investor", it is actually better to credit the scammer ("oh, they'll repay eventually) than to enforce the loss.

15:56:33 mircea_popescu: in the entire history of that fucking thing, there's like, one case where the "i'll pay a little sometime when i can" thing blew up, and that was when mpoe-pr prosecuted harnett's "bank

15:56:55 mircea_popescu: other than that, germany is always happy to think that a claim, no matter how unlikely, to "its gold" is more valuable to it than blowing the scam open.

15:57:27 mircea_popescu: and so the scammers of all stripes and colors, under the high patronage of the united states government, keep doing great business.

15:58:02 mircea_popescu: "market discipline" being you know, just this boogaboo to scare argentina with

16:00:16 mats_cd03: mircea_popescu: 22.
