00:00:53 mircea_popescu: cazalla "Error: Network error." lol archive no werk

00:04:19 cazalla: who knows who or if it was explicitly done or deleted along with other stuff as part of usms routine

00:04:52 cazalla: so if anyone can enlighten me.. what typically happens to those that find themselves in prison during the collapse of a nation?

00:13:46 mircea_popescu: depends. one counterfitter was freed from bastille.

00:14:08 mircea_popescu: gheorghe gheorghiu dej went from common criminal to head of romanian state in a decade

00:14:16 mircea_popescu: generally, the actual criminals do quite well.

00:14:25 mircea_popescu: deedbot- http://fraudsters.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/usms-scammers-foia.txt

00:15:25 deedbot-: Bad URL or network outage.

00:15:25 mircea_popescu: ah come on!

00:15:25 trinque: I've asked numerous times for a list of URLs people want whitelisted.

00:15:25 trinque: I assume I should add fraudsters :D

00:15:25 mircea_popescu: trinque no but just don't check url

00:15:25 mircea_popescu: the idea being, ifsomeone absuses it we just negrate him.

00:15:25 trinque: I suppose I can dial back the paranoia

00:15:28 mircea_popescu: ty.

00:15:42 mircea_popescu: gotta give people enough room to fail, otherwise people can't be good.

00:15:51 trinque: that's reasonable

00:16:03 trinque: when I build new things I tend to err towards caution

00:16:12 mircea_popescu: understandabru

00:19:08 trinque: mircea_popescu: ok give it another go

00:19:41 mircea_popescu: deedbot- http://fraudsters.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/usms-scammers-foia.txt

00:20:41 deedbot-: accepted: 1

00:20:41 mircea_popescu: yay

00:20:52 cazalla: check it out, some people are stress testing the network to make the argument for a blocksize increase https://blockchain.info/new-transactions

00:21:52 mircea_popescu: how's this supposed to work.

00:21:52 mircea_popescu: Summary Status: Disconnected lolk

00:21:53 cazalla: apparently you bloat unconfirmed tx so that it's great than 1mb and then you point and say see, we need an increase cause i gotta wait 20m instead of 10m for 1 confirmation

00:22:10 mircea_popescu: uhhh

00:22:15 mircea_popescu: except this doesn't work lol.

00:22:37 mircea_popescu: old coinbases still get priority.

00:22:53 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 47900 @ 0.00031931 = 15.2949 BTC [-] {2}

00:23:20 mircea_popescu: not to even mention... fee paying txn

00:23:28 cazalla: well they probably don't have anything older than a few days anyway

00:23:56 mircea_popescu: the beauty of this being that if you have say 1000btc in one chunk

00:24:11 mircea_popescu: spending anything out of it makes BOTH the little you spent and the 999.x remainder NEW coinbases.

00:29:49 cazalla: some coincidence a bunch of folk on /r/bitcoin get together to stress test the same day gavin threatens to take his ball/bat and go home with hearn

00:30:14 mircea_popescu: imagine the "stress test" if the blocks ACTUALLY WERE 20mb.

00:30:28 mircea_popescu: one can always spin up an arbitrary number of spammy txn.

00:30:30 midnightmagic: Likely whoever it is who's paying the /r/bitcoin shills has an agenda, just like everyone else..

00:32:24 mircea_popescu: "Kipnis was not allowed to have an attorney present during her interview with Title IX investigators, she writes, but she was allowed to bring along another faculty member as a "support person" provided that the person she brought did not speak. That support person later discussed Kipnis' situation at a "Faculty Senate" meeting?and has subsequently been accused of, yes, committing a Title IX violation."

00:32:27 mircea_popescu: pretty lulzy.

00:32:40 mircea_popescu: i think ima start "tit 1337" investigations of random people nao.

00:32:43 mircea_popescu: why the fuck not even.

00:33:30 williamdunne: midnightmagic: I think its most likely just stupid people, nothing nefarious

00:33:32 williamdunne: Well

00:33:37 williamdunne: Outside of the stupidity that is

00:34:33 mircea_popescu: danielpbarron http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-05-2015#1147706 logz ?

00:38:10 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-05-2015#1147755 << seems adequate. "you mean kid in a dorm somewhere dared do something we disagree with on an ideological level ?!!!1?!?!?!"

00:38:59 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-05-2015#1147766 << pretty much the entirety of the us claims in this case are puff.

00:38:59 assbot: Logged on 29-05-2015 21:17:31; trinque: http://www.forbes.com/sites/katevinton/2015/03/30/two-former-federal-agents-charged-with-stealing-bitcoin-during-silk-road-investigation/ << claims 20k were stolen by the agents

00:39:03 decimation: yeah but life in prison?

00:39:51 mircea_popescu: they got money burnin holes in their pockets absolutely must buy guy's meal and doctor visits.

00:40:07 cazalla: t-bone and chorizo and then a couple persimmons for breakfast.. i am so snake full

00:40:11 mircea_popescu: what do you suppose is the difference between this life in prison and that life in prison anyway ? not like he was gonna buy himself a house.

00:40:28 decimation: he could 'buy' 'a house' though

00:40:33 mircea_popescu: so he did.

00:40:54 cazalla: don't forget the 180m he owns USG despite em selling his proceeds

00:40:56 mircea_popescu: honestly, if i was seriously contemplating living in the us, i'd seriously consider getting a life sentence. that way they're stuck paying for it all

00:41:03 mircea_popescu: you can just paint or w/e it is you wanted to do.

00:41:40 mircea_popescu: become a literary critic.

00:42:00 cazalla: but the food..

00:42:10 mircea_popescu: eh, it's about on par with what people generally eat.

00:42:21 cazalla: he'll be eating grilled cheese off the radiator

00:42:30 williamdunne: cazalla: Owes 18m, they removed what they gained from selling the coins

00:42:48 decimation: apparently in the us the strain of e.coli that eats your colon is considered to be an 'adulterant' in beef

00:42:56 mircea_popescu: williamdunne and the part they didn't sell because their own agents stole ? removed that too ?

00:42:57 mircea_popescu: lmao

00:42:58 decimation: but in chicken, simonella (which can eat your brain) isn't

00:43:09 mircea_popescu: salmonella ?

00:43:19 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> honestly, if i was seriously contemplating living in the us, i'd seriously consider getting a life sentence. that way they're stuck paying for it all << Get yourself Bariatric, then get the life sentence for maximum cost infliction

00:43:21 cazalla: williamdunne, where do you get that from? justice.gov says "In addition to the life sentence prison term, ULBRICHT was ordered to forfeit $183,961,921."

00:43:52 williamdunne: Can't remember which article I read it on

00:43:54 williamdunne: But yeah

00:44:02 trinque: does this come out of his deodorant and titty magazine account in prison?

00:44:11 mircea_popescu: lol

00:44:14 williamdunne: Said that while he was ordered to forfeit that much they consider what they sold to contribute towards it

00:44:34 decimation: yeah salmonella

00:44:40 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Its not like that is the USGs responsibility </sarc>

00:44:49 mircea_popescu: decimation very unfair contrast, this. e coli is natural gut fauna. salmonella is never found in healthy humans.

00:44:54 decimation: apparently this comes from a court case in the 1970's

00:45:26 decimation: where the chicken lobby argued that it would be insulting to the housewives of america if the government said that they couldn't handle some salmonella contamination

00:45:31 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> salmonella ? << It Birds and reptiles it is part of their normal flora. Can't be considered an adultrant

00:45:43 mircea_popescu: but we're feeding us, not them

00:45:53 decimation: BingoBoingo: but e.coli is in beef

00:46:16 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 72250 @ 0.00033304 = 24.0621 BTC [+] {2}

00:46:23 BingoBoingo: decimation: Depends on the strain of e. coli

00:46:33 mircea_popescu: the idea is, that e coli is commensal or symbiotic, depending on your perspective, whereas salmonella is pathogenic

00:46:45 mircea_popescu: these are about as unlike as steel and arsenic.

00:46:53 mircea_popescu: notwithstanding you can make a steel sword and behead someone

00:47:36 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> the idea is, that e coli is commensal or symbiotic, depending on your perspective, whereas salmonella is pathogenic << unless you are a chicken or turtle... then salmonella is just normal poop bacteria

00:47:49 mircea_popescu: well sure, i guess chicken fda has a diff take

00:49:19 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 11350 @ 0.00033584 = 3.8118 BTC [+]

00:50:43 BingoBoingo: Most people who self diagnose salmonella usually actually test positive for campylobacter anyways when chikken makes em sick

00:51:15 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-05-2015#1147779 << goes right back to yesterday, and before's discussion re starving in the street.

00:51:15 assbot: Logged on 29-05-2015 21:22:42; decimation: another point to note - if the former speaker of the house/k street lobbyist can't access cash in an anonymous way, what chance to regular people have?

00:51:24 mircea_popescu: check it out alfie, guy is starving in the street. good enough yet ? :D

00:54:45 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-05-2015#1147788 << this is exactly irrelevant for anyone in the past. obviously, if trotsky ended up with a pickaxe in the head, it then follows that trotsky ended up with a pickaxe in the head. what of this is germane to any discussion of trotsky in any positive approach ?

00:54:45 assbot: Logged on 29-05-2015 21:25:41; ascii_field: <decimation> another point to note - if the former speaker of the house/k street lobbyist can't access cash in an anonymous way, what chance to regular people have? << if he is on trial, then it follows that he first fell from grace

00:54:59 mircea_popescu: is it related to his tooth brushing habits ? is it a function of being loose with women ?

00:55:12 mircea_popescu: that is the point. to fall from grace there must be a grace first. there isn't.

00:56:02 BingoBoingo: lol http://qntra.net/2015/05/gavin-threatens-to-quit-bitcoin-development-and-join-hearns-fork/#comment-25130

00:57:39 mircea_popescu: https://i.imgur.com/OEqzSmC.png << bwahahaha.

00:58:39 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, cazalla and i : bringing wtf to fb normies since a while ago.

00:58:40 cazalla: normies get out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AAO92foBwA

00:59:40 BingoBoingo: best thumbnail

00:59:40 mircea_popescu: dude can't even screem wtf.

00:59:40 mircea_popescu: sounds liek a prison rape.

01:00:03 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-05-2015#1147807 << quite exactly.

01:00:03 assbot: Logged on 29-05-2015 21:45:33; trinque: it also brings to mind the way these things develop, where first intent may be something which increases or decreases the legal severity of some other crime, but over time becomes a crime all its own

01:00:31 mircea_popescu: once something gains legal relevance, there's no way to keep it from becoming severed.

01:01:47 BingoBoingo: So it seems we have a young stray cat in the neighborhood that really likes it's dinner still screaming.

01:02:43 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 50100 @ 0.00032301 = 16.1828 BTC [-] {2}

01:02:55 cazalla: keel it! fuck i hate cats

01:02:58 BingoBoingo: All last night, every 15 minutes, squeak squeak squeak as it plays with another mouse for quite a while liek it is eating a korean octopus dish

01:03:43 BingoBoingo: cazalla: I didn't even interupt it. As much as I hated the noise, better it gets the mice than the mice get inside

01:03:44 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 88174 @ 0.00031694 = 27.9459 BTC [-] {3}

01:03:59 cazalla: what harm is a field mouse?

01:04:13 BingoBoingo: if it gets inside it shits everywhere and dies

01:04:25 mircea_popescu: "As I've written before, Silk Road was undoubtedly a net positive for the health, safety, and liberty of most of its customers and sellers. "

01:04:34 mircea_popescu: random commentator on internets has an excewllent point

01:04:44 mircea_popescu: that the defense failed to call out the moral-panic powered prosecution

01:04:57 mircea_popescu: and to point out that the only person being helpful to the community in that room is the accused,

01:05:14 mircea_popescu: whereas the rest of the derps are essentially going on a "holy shit something we never heard of before- BURN THE WITHCq!1"

01:05:30 mircea_popescu: is perhaps the major-est failure in known legal history.

01:05:55 mircea_popescu: whenever anyone tells you that fucktarded "he who represents himself has a fool for a client", do remember : at least it won't be as bad as the silk road defense.

01:06:01 williamdunne: The lawyers derped there, big time

01:06:19 mircea_popescu: nothing one can do accidentally or untinentionally can ever be as bad as the deliberate, calculated poison the officers of the court masquerading as "defense counsel" put forth.

01:07:28 BingoBoingo: Dratel was the worst. Even Matlock would have done better and he's dead nao.

01:07:33 cazalla: BingoBoingo, but cats shit every where too

01:08:34 BingoBoingo: cazalla: Feral cats tend to not make it inside and outside of winter they don't really try to either

01:09:29 cazalla: i can't say i've ever had a problem with mice or know of anyone that has down under.. cats though? huge problem, huge shits, lots of noise

01:11:37 cazalla: fyi http://i.imgur.com/sr1rQaa.png

01:14:23 BingoBoingo: Well, for what it is worth this cat sucks at being feral. I went out for a cig and it was just sitting under a tree. Might be someone wanted an outdoor cat as a pet.

01:14:41 mircea_popescu: and that goes to the rest of you fuckheads. 1) i know who all of you are. this because your overlords can't keep secrets worth a shit. 2) my people are intangible or you get fucked.

01:14:41 BingoBoingo: cazalla: You forget we have farms, woods, and native wild bunnies

01:14:43 mircea_popescu: should be simple enough.,

01:15:54 BingoBoingo: Oh, -otc basically a trap nao?

01:16:01 danielpbarron: defo

01:16:23 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo -otc has all teh "relevancy" one could ever wish for.

01:21:04 BingoBoingo: I kinda thought as much

01:36:49 midnightmagic: williamdunne: No, there are actual groups of people with years-long accounts who are paid. Coindesk or coinfire, or $random_lame_news_outlet "broke" the story a while ago including screenshots and lists of reddit accounts (which they kept private)

01:36:57 midnightmagic: And they get paid by people they never met.

01:38:09 williamdunne: Sure, I know shills exist, I was offered some myself

01:38:21 williamdunne: I just thing the vast majority of the people are just derping

01:38:49 mircea_popescu: this is broadly true, but much like the guy with the red stapler, that vast majority doesn't actually take the time and effort to prop conde nast's numbers while derping

01:38:54 mircea_popescu: they just derp to themselves.

01:44:59 danielpbarron: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=30-05-2015#1147922 << i noticed this on my two nodes; my pogo has been lagging behind by at least a few blocks and my bigger machine was also getting its memory pool jammed up

They've done a few excellent stories in their history, but the way they operate is just so fucking... odd

01:46:31 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo afaik it's just a hard working guy that is completely misguided as to what constitutes business etc.

01:46:41 mircea_popescu: "professional"

01:47:04 williamdunne: Won't even own any bitcoin because it could make him 'biased'

01:47:10 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: That and he's got a few fresh off the reddit faces he finds to help throw up occasional extra stories

01:48:00 mircea_popescu: williamdunne yeah that's exactly the sort of thing. what clueless derp would think of the press bias in these terms ?

01:48:18 mircea_popescu: fresh off a community college course in "introduction to journalism" from wichita ?

01:48:44 midnightmagic: I'd heard of that guy. That's the coinfire guy is it? Huh.

01:49:36 williamdunne: Financial Times writers no longer allowed to hold any commodity, currency, or other tradable asset.

01:50:01 mircea_popescu: yeah, because they were going to. all bought on the generous pay their prestigious position with the times allows them.

01:50:18 mircea_popescu: they can buy either 0 shares of any stock or no less than 0 contracts in any future.

01:53:13 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> williamdunne yeah that's exactly the sort of thing. what clueless derp would think of the press bias in these terms ? << Whichever Timothy go hooked into working for Vox faced this dilemma. Staid with Vox to his peril

02:13:34 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: ty very much for the timing of that one

02:13:52 mircea_popescu: sure o.O

02:14:33 BingoBoingo: decimation: You can hire a lawyer, but you gotta make sure they understand they are the hired help. They deal with the clerks and the bitchwork. You do the reading and make the decisions.

02:15:17 scoopbot_revived: Some Other People Sentenced This Month in US Courts http://qntra.net/2015/05/some-other-people-sentenced-this-month-in-us-courts/

02:15:43 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo if you can find someone like this, it'll usually be a paralegal.

02:16:13 *: BingoBoingo presently has a "good christian lawyer"

02:16:15 decimation: A friend told me about how a local inspector came to examine his house (which he was building himself). The inspector told him that he should have hired a professional to do the plumbing (he did, but represented his own house to the inspector)

02:16:48 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: but yeah you hire them for their license and make em paralegal for you

02:16:51 decimation: the inspector failed the plumbing on many counts. meanwhile the plumber who did the work had similar work passed by the same inspector on a different job

02:16:56 mircea_popescu: "Danish Syed (archived) was sentenced to 18 months in prison for helping his half brother move to Pakistan." o.O

02:17:29 decimation: My point is that if you represent yourself you are going to be 'presumed guilty of failing to genuflect before the government appropriately'

02:17:45 mircea_popescu: well, in cases which are essentially this to begin with...

02:17:50 decimation: exactly.

02:18:12 decimation: well, this calls to mind the 'trial' of georges danton

02:18:31 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: On that one basically the half brother milked some fiat fails and went to Pakistan when charges hit. Syed helped some of his cash return to him.

02:18:59 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo wow check it out, woman betrayed teh pakistani ring!

02:19:11 BingoBoingo: Tends to happen.

02:19:56 mircea_popescu: "Chrisopher Serna (archived) was sentenced to 50 years in prison by a Florida court for cutting off his girlfriend's head and sticking it on a pole."

02:19:57 mircea_popescu: o.O

05:43:35 liquidassets: hmm maybe not, but you look pretty familiar, I'm almost certain we were at a few of the same tourneys

05:44:08 liquidassets: I've played in Montreal and Calgary if I remember correctly, I know for sure I was in Quebec

05:51:17 liquidassets: I thought for sure we played doubles at some point. Haven't been into it for awhile

05:51:57 liquidassets: no big tournaments..actually I won one mixed doubles international tournament. My partner I was set up with was from Taipei

05:51:58 pete_dushenski: liquidassets well, the "p" surname doesn't really give me much to go on.

06:06:39 liquidassets: Haha nice

06:06:47 pete_dushenski: though my joints don't have the endurance to play 10 games in a day anymore so i just play for fun once a week or so.

09:54:37 cazalla: not consciously but hey whatever pleases you

09:54:58 cazalla: you do all sorts of crazy shit on that sherm eh

09:55:11 mircea_popescu: apparently.

09:55:31 cazalla: watched that last night, at least for the first time in full, not a bad movie

09:55:52 mircea_popescu: true romance ? it's great, provided you have the director's cut

09:56:29 mircea_popescu: what the studio released is piss. and the comparison an interesting exercise in how "management" can fuck up a movie even when having everything needed for greatness in a neat package.

09:57:04 cazalla: well shit, i'm not sure which copy i have

09:57:24 mircea_popescu: does it end with them on a beach ?

09:57:32 cazalla: yeah, with a kid

09:57:34 mircea_popescu: piss.

09:58:44 cazalla: what's the difference, just the ending?

09:59:42 mircea_popescu: some bits here and there, and the ending, yeah.

10:10:10 mircea_popescu: or vice-versa >D

10:11:14 cazalla: yeah that too.. other idea is that the writers are shitposting about their show to drum up some viral marketing type shit knowing that /pol/ will and has run with it

10:11:29 mircea_popescu: anyway, in fairness what i'm saying is that i don't believe that chan is impressive enough in bodycount to constitute a market anyone would wish to cater to, creating the tv version of hot topic, nor intellectually impressive enough to constitute anyone's thought leadership.

10:11:36 mircea_popescu: but i could be wrong on either score, obviously.

10:12:25 mircea_popescu: if you feel like giving me a top 5 or whatever most relevant ideas coming out of /pol/ i'd read it.

10:13:09 cazalla: 5 might be a little tough

10:13:47 mircea_popescu: i'll take anything.

10:16:34 cazalla: well i guess the multi-culti immigration might be a start, not that i mind immigrants but i think they are somewhat right in that it undermines social trust in a community

10:17:08 mircea_popescu: this is by no means a novel point, or all that aptly expressed there, is it ?

10:18:22 cazalla: i just see my own anecdotes mirrored there.. grew up in a homogeneous society where everywhere knew everyone.. 25 years later that is no longer the case

10:18:59 cazalla: but then the argument usually veers towards this being the fault of jews

10:19:08 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 43600 @ 0.00032781 = 14.2925 BTC [-]

10:19:13 cazalla: but then that is sorta like blacks blaming whites for their predicament

10:19:40 mircea_popescu: well at least it's not blaming the freemasons.

10:19:50 mircea_popescu: or loose women

10:20:00 cazalla: they blame both of those too

10:20:20 mircea_popescu: (actually, there IS a trend of angry older men trying to make these issues about "whores", but general social discourse's keeping them well repressed atm)

10:20:26 mircea_popescu: ahga.

10:21:07 cazalla: they blame loose women for the down fall of the family unit

10:21:26 cazalla: don't get me wrong.. i like the idea of a strong family unit.. but i also like the idea of loose whores provided the strong family doesn't find out

10:22:17 mircea_popescu: anyway i suspect there isn't a way out. historically, the "civilised world" was rich and powerful because it enjoyed a monopoly on trade, built out of scientific and military effort. the twerps in question, joe average, decided to quit supporting the industrial-military complex (chiefly because they got burned twice in 16-18 and then in 39-44, and it hurt badly, esp the 2nd time, and so it's understandable)

10:22:29 mircea_popescu: as a result, it collapsed, and as a result there is absolutely no reason they should make more than a dollar a day.

10:22:43 mircea_popescu: which is where everyone's headed, from alabama to tasmania.

10:23:02 mircea_popescu: which i don't see any problem whatsoever with, but then again i'm privileged, or as alf put it, "rootless kosmopolitanski"

10:23:03 cazalla: so i still read /pol/ daily but i can easily point out where i am hypocritcal on just about everything discussed there.. do as i say, not as i do sort of thing is really what it comes down to

10:23:12 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 56036 @ 0.00033196 = 18.6017 BTC [+] {2}

10:24:13 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 14464 @ 0.00033814 = 4.8909 BTC [+] {2}

10:24:31 mircea_popescu: the question of "what exactly is so speshul about joe doe that he should live other than in a hovel like random nigerian" is paramount, and none of the anti-imigration types seem inclined to address it.

10:24:36 mircea_popescu: so... why is he special ?

10:25:17 mircea_popescu: once we get an answer to that we can start discussing how to oppress the nigerian again, at which point "immigration policy" may be on the agenda. not befoar.

10:26:46 mircea_popescu: and the family unit is more of the same. why should 85% have any access to women at all, and why should the 1% not get 94% of all the pleasantly nubile stoyas out there, with the remainder 6% going to the 14% aspirational betas ?

10:27:55 cazalla: well he's not special and in saying that, i'm not special, but i like but can't explain my desire of social cohesion, which is why i like the hitler videos with endless crowds

10:28:18 mircea_popescu: that's the natural distribution in a 2 million strong society : 10k blokes with a harem averaging high 80s headcounts, 140k blokes double-tagging 60k hos and the rest watching the previous on instagram.

10:28:21 cazalla: i don't have egalitarian values so that the minority get the majority of anything does not bother me

10:29:10 mircea_popescu: cazalla there is something to be said for social cohesion, the problem with it is that it tends to flow towards all-germany / all-russia sort of constructs.

10:29:21 mircea_popescu: either trench warfare or "great leap forward" sorta crap.

10:29:55 mircea_popescu: society (as an immanent beast in human affairs) is scared to death of it, these days. i can see why.

10:30:10 mircea_popescu: i suspect for a while yet the only real social cohesion to be head will be in mmorpg raiding parties.

10:30:15 mircea_popescu: had*

10:31:12 mircea_popescu: previously it was rock concerts, but that kind-of died somehow, which i find very weird.

10:32:39 cazalla: i would guess because the last thing that matters is the music.. it's all seating arrangements etc now

10:33:23 cazalla: tickets, cds, tshirts.. it's an expensive hobby these days

10:34:49 mircea_popescu: maybe so

10:34:59 cazalla: mmorpg raids is an interesting thought.. i wonder what race demos of that is

10:35:17 mircea_popescu: i personally care a lot more about the fact that there are no movies/bands/anything worth going to see

10:35:33 mircea_popescu: than the fact that some random immigrant's drooling over random 16yo neighbour.

10:36:09 cazalla: my problem with immigrants is that i grew up knowing my neighbours, my community, it was homogeneous and everyone knew everyone (also was a small town)

10:36:34 mircea_popescu: broadway's fucking dead, think about it - it was born out of the need to provide entertainment on the cheap for the hordes of stated insland escapees

10:36:35 cazalla: in the suburbs just outside the city there is none of that and the idea that you know who lives around you is a foreign idea to everyone i've met down here

10:36:42 mircea_popescu: and now... what ? da fuck does it do.

10:37:55 mircea_popescu: cazalla well the idea of community based on geographic proximity / random accident like that is certainly taken a beating on account of the internets. used to be you had a shot at random neighouring cunt just on the grounds of being neighbouring, at some point.

10:38:14 mircea_popescu: nowadays location's nigh on irrelevant.

10:38:16 cazalla: yes i remember a fraudsters article along the lines of this

10:38:39 cazalla: or maybe it was discussed in logs but made sense in any case

10:38:45 mircea_popescu: prolly was.

10:40:27 cazalla: pol also made it clear that prior generations always had one that came after it which was seen as worse than the one before it, at least until now

10:40:44 mircea_popescu: not true.

10:40:50 cazalla: it's sorta agreed there that this might be the first generation which is more of a pussy than the last

10:40:52 mircea_popescu: human civilisation fails periodically.

10:41:18 mircea_popescu: russia and central europe had a generation of failures that got kicked out in the 90s.

10:41:43 mircea_popescu: china had a generation of failures that got kicked out in the 30s, that's what the entire revolution was about. china actually has lots of these.

10:42:19 mircea_popescu: pick a country and i'll tell you at least one example.

10:42:39 cazalla: i believe you, just sorta reveals the size of the timeline you and i think on

10:42:48 mircea_popescu: austria had one during friedrich's reign and most of europe had one in the 1790s / 1800s

10:42:54 cazalla: the world began in 1982, didn't ya know? :P

10:42:59 mircea_popescu: ah, there is that.

10:43:56 mircea_popescu: heck, woodstock is exactly this "you suck" moment of the us. much blander than historically the norm.
