03:08:23 trinque: it will be a fascinating thing if the US attempt to align the Middle East with itself - via some naive "we'll make them all South Korea and Japan!" notion - results in alignment with Russia, and even more amusing if the thing actually results in some semblance of "peace in the Middle East" down the road

03:17:42 mike_c: I think rubio is warming up for the next one.

03:19:59 BingoBoingo: mike_c: He prolly is. Wants to resurrect the McCain/Romney train since Santorum had to be skipped.

06:42:32 mircea_popescu: "a woman that can not use her own body to extemporaneously exemplify grace has scant changes to sexual fulfillment".

06:43:01 punkman: chick was pretty good, most derps on youtube try to hold on using only their hands

06:43:06 mircea_popescu: yup.

06:43:28 mircea_popescu: the reason she's so good is because she puts no work into it whatsoever. just absorbs the bull with minimal friction.

06:43:46 mircea_popescu: this happens to be a perfectly fine (if negative) definition of gracefulness, and thus a fine way to measure it.

06:44:57 punkman: plenty of friction between bull and vulva

06:45:07 mircea_popescu: notrly.

06:45:29 mircea_popescu: (the reason the thigh gap exists, anatomically, is exactly to provide insulation from work friction as seen there. her cunt's in the air throughout)

06:47:41 mircea_popescu: also the mechanical bull is specifically designed to defeat men, which is to say, humans who use force to compensate for a lack of gracefulness.

06:47:58 mircea_popescu: the thing with using force is that your muscles are dual controlled, there's a fine and a gross motor innervation.

06:48:10 mircea_popescu: as the muscle grows tired it becomes unresponsive to fine control

06:49:09 mircea_popescu: (whosoever fucked a woman properly could readily verify this by laying on back and trying to slowly move knees up. the jerky motion is due to lack of fine control)

06:49:25 mircea_popescu: and as the rider becomes unable to exercise fine control, he becomes unable to maintain balance.

06:49:31 mircea_popescu: as errors compound.

06:57:30 mircea_popescu: & Vanzetti". On 26 November 1927, Di Giovanni and his comrades duly bombed Bernardo Gurevich's tobacco shop Combinados on Rivadavia 2279."

09:06:55 mircea_popescu: i'm ... mefiant of too automated systems.

09:07:01 davout: the point is i really shouldn't have to ask

09:07:23 davout: i'm not saying it has to be automated

09:07:54 mircea_popescu: i can't in good conscience propose that the contract may be renewed when i've not even heard from you.

09:08:04 mircea_popescu: this may even be ridiculous, but it's still what i'm stuck with.

09:08:53 mircea_popescu: there must be a minimum of attention available. it is perhaps true that if you didn't even have to show up once a mnonth for it you'd have more attention available to promote the thing. it is an unpersuasive theory.

09:10:52 davout: nobody is proposing the contract should be renewed, the contract itself is here, stands and describes the instrument, that's how i read it

09:11:45 davout: "2.3. Settlement. Upon the Settlement Date, which shall be the 15th day of every month at noon GMT,"

09:11:58 davout: "(a) The Exchange will compile a list of all contract holders, identifying their registered GPG signatures and the number of contracts held, encrypt this list and forward it to the Market Maker."

09:13:04 mircea_popescu: you seriously propose that going "oh hai" once a month is too much service here ?

09:14:19 davout: is that what i'm proposing?

09:15:10 mircea_popescu: best i can tell.

09:17:19 mircea_popescu: for instance : last month, the stuff went unrenewed for about two weeks. two weeks during which you didn't complain about the matter. this, not because I didn't notice. i had noticed. i was actually getting ready to announce that the x.eur thing is discontinued.

09:17:46 mircea_popescu: the moral of that experience isn't to complain at me that you weren't around for a while. the moral of that experience is to be around. it is after all your flagship product as far as i can tell. treat it like it were.

09:18:37 mircea_popescu: and yes this includes scheduling your vacations, divorces and funerals around the 15th of the month. it's that important.

09:24:49 mircea_popescu: and since we're talking about things : http://www.newsbtc.com/2015/09/07/bitcoin-startup-paymium-raised-e1-million-in-seed-funding/ << this i read about in "newsbtc" ? because why ?

09:24:51 assbot: Bitcoin Startup Paymium Raised €1 Million in Seed Funding - NEWSBTC ... ( http://bit.ly/1KR8dLN )

09:27:34 davout: what i'm proposing is that the contract is pretty clear, and that me hanging around #b-a and keeping up with it, is important, but nonetheless absolutely orthogonal with it.

09:28:25 davout: if you want to make me requesting x.eur holders list a part of the process that's fine, we'll update the contract

09:29:18 mircea_popescu: i don't want anything specific. but i will be keeping track of a large ammount of tiny indicators, because anything else results in exam-taking-training.

09:30:25 mircea_popescu: so if you're wondering where the X is, as you should be wondering at any point after noon on the 15th, and it occurs to you we've prolly not heard anything from you in weeks, one of the simplest solutions is to fix it ad hoc, and one of the better solutions is to fix whatsoever fundamental problems that led to your misallocation of time towards reddit or w/e the fuck. because otherwise the rift this allows is bound to

09:30:26 mircea_popescu: grow, and eventually tear things apart.

09:30:40 mircea_popescu: maybe i got special mental needs or something, but to me all this seems obvious.

09:32:04 mircea_popescu: and i still dunno why if im friends with the cto of some company i gotta read from random spamsite about financing events at some company.

09:32:30 mircea_popescu: i can't even follow how or why this seemed like a good idea.

09:38:56 davout: thought i had talked about it in-chan, guess i didn't

12:18:10 davout: in direct contradiction of 4.1 of said contract, btw

12:20:12 davout: anyway, the fact that deliveries actually occur in much less than two weeks(tm) is what ultimately matters to me

12:20:46 jurov: i think mp was talking about 2.4 d .. that "tacit agreement" means you being around and alive

13:07:52 funkenstein_: like, what would that even mean, "women-centric"? Perhaps that as a man you would move in at your mother-in-law's place and take their name.

13:08:06 funkenstein_: An arrangement that doesn't sound too bad to me, having a house given to you as well as babysitters and cooks

13:09:17 funkenstein_: meanwhile chiefs, warriors, politicos, doctors - still were most always male gender

13:10:24 funkenstein_: houses being passed on to the daughters is the main reason anthropologist use the word "matriarchy"

13:10:34 funkenstein_: anyway the idea that any of this would have an affect on whether your kids were slaughtered by retarded orcs is oblique at best

13:11:10 funkenstein_: people don't have to give a shit, nor crack a book. but then bringing it up as if they did give a shit doesn't seem productive does it?

13:16:20 mircea_popescu: and ftr, what i mean by "women-centric" is that the sorts of concerns of women (pain avoidance) are priviledged as societal goals. this is both harmful to society's prospects of survival as it is harmful to ALL individual members, overall, of both sexes.

13:26:19 funkenstein_: aha, perhaps something like a "the world is a loving mother and will take care of you" attitude?

13:28:08 funkenstein_: doesn't always work out that way does it

14:02:42 mod6: I might be able to throw that together. my version should be out for testing in the next week or so though if you just wanna wait. it'll build the whole graph for you with wild patches.

14:03:13 mod6: i'm trying to wrap up all these automated cucumber tests & loose ends on some stuff.

14:07:20 mod6: at this point, what it'll do is build a whole graphviz dotfile and output that to stdout or a file. the only part that it wont do (because you have to install `dot' separately) is for example: `dot -Tsvg <dotfile> > graph.html`

14:08:13 mod6: i guess i could add a method that'll check if dot is installed, and if it is, then will generate the svg html file for you... but *shrug*

14:18:01 mod6: then yours will be added after that.

16:36:59 mircea_popescu: this is universal. if the hrt team gets blown to bits, they run off. what fucking "aerial bombardment", you think that's how it goes, someone feels like it one day and that's it, go ?

16:37:02 ascii_field: strong state does not degenerate to a point where you can ask this question.

19:04:31 mircea_popescu: hey pete_dushenski, what do you do in your spare time ?

19:04:41 mircea_popescu: by which i mean, when you're not here/writing on your blog etc.

19:05:57 mats: payment processing networks are rolling out updates for 'emv' support at midnight in usa

19:07:24 ascii_field: 'Starting Thursday, merchants will be held fully liable for any losses due to credit card fraud if they are not geared up for the new, more secure, chip cards. And consumers will need to change their habit of swiping their credit cards to pay: Instead, they "dip" their new cards into terminals and leave them there until the transaction is complete. That is, if the retailer they're shopping at has the necessary equipment.'

19:07:24 ascii_field: << mega-snore.

19:07:30 ascii_field: 1) merchants were ALWAYS liable

19:07:46 ascii_field: 2) the new cards are BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE for www purchases and equally scammable

19:07:53 ascii_field: (can use the cc # to buy)

19:07:55 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu property manager of a small, older commercial building that my father owns. 6 tenants, 100 occupants, fun little project. also manage two residential properties. also manage a small start-up in the construction materials space, we make the first/only/bestest fibreglass composite curtain wall framing. and then there's the little one. le petit monstre...

19:08:02 mats: if you have plans to buy things with your credit card tomorrow, should prob do it today, processing networks will be intermittently down

19:08:33 mircea_popescu: here's the thing in my head : b-a is by now at a stage where it kinda needs its own pr agency. and you might be just the asshole to do that, if you swing that way. do you swing that way ?

19:08:36 thestringpuller: mats: is this national?

19:08:48 mats: yes

19:09:02 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: pr agency, l0l! isn't that what moiety starved doing ?

19:09:11 mircea_popescu: no.

19:09:21 mircea_popescu: she starved doing the very scared of bombs secretary brit girl.

19:09:29 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu how do you imagine this agency working ?

19:09:41 pete_dushenski: i'm at essentially no risk of starvation, ftr.

19:09:47 mircea_popescu: and the process of her starvation was that she starved on her own devices, b-a got her a place to stay and then she ran off.

19:09:58 ascii_field: iirc pete_dushenski even sleeps ad libitum

19:10:21 pete_dushenski: even with infant, i do indeed

19:10:31 ascii_field: just the man for a 'Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in event of success.'

19:10:38 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski a pr agency is in this day and age a very simple affair, but somewhat time consuming. in principle, it can be reduced to a lone dude with an internet connection and two lists. one, longer, of useful social media derps. the sort that are willing to do the hard work of upvoting, derping on reddit, etc. the other, sadly shorter, of actual important people can talk to directly. like say "all newspaper column

19:10:39 mircea_popescu: ists in so and so".

19:11:21 mircea_popescu: building these is not particularly difficult,. but it takes time. more importantly, it takes determination. and the sort of attitude of the guy that hey, the managers don't wanna see, but since the phone is here...

19:11:33 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: can't resist the question, what is the point of having the first of the lists ?

19:11:46 mircea_popescu: faux "consensus" building.

19:11:58 mircea_popescu: you know, like reddit all agreed that XT is gonna take over.

19:12:13 *: ascii_field was under the impression that this is a waste of time

19:12:34 ascii_field: at least as per mircea_popescutronic theory

19:12:36 mircea_popescu: depends for whom. why allow the pinoys to make this money ?

19:12:39 mircea_popescu: starve the enemy throughout.

19:12:48 mircea_popescu: denial is a valid strategy.

19:14:31 thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: how is this any different than marketing?

19:14:45 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu i believe i grok the first list - straightforward enough really, compile those on 'social media' on 'our side' and focus their energies accordingly - it's the second list i'm less clear about.

19:14:58 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski arrington's success, you have to understand, is very little more than this. it's not a difficult recipe to read or follow. it just takes the hard worker to execute.

19:15:10 mircea_popescu: one could argue that jobs genius is altogether not much above this either.

19:15:44 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski no, it's more like, spend all your time on fiverr and craigslist and wherever the hungry congregate, spend a little money buying their ample time.

19:16:05 mircea_popescu: nobody gives a shit about extant social media accounts. their value is not even a fractrion of the work they put in

19:16:25 ascii_field: notice how dog sleds exist, but not rat sleds.

19:16:26 mircea_popescu: what you want is shannonizing meatrobots, capable of pouring out more nonsense. they're cheaper than the electric type, as of yet.

19:16:26 pete_dushenski: aha. so basically #1 is fighting fire with fire.

19:16:28 ascii_field: or chicken sleds.

19:16:44 mircea_popescu: ascii_field every circus worth its name has a flea sled.

19:16:45 BingoBoingo: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=30-09-2015#1288460 << Ferguson is in a Considers arresting USG state

19:16:45 assbot: Logged on 30-09-2015 15:09:25; ascii_field: ferguson, for instance, is not in md.

19:17:10 ascii_field: flea sled is great so long as it is not expected to go anywhere in particular.

19:17:14 ascii_field: or carry anything.

19:17:15 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo yeah, i figured he had me when he said that :p

19:17:42 mircea_popescu: ascii_field which it isn't.

19:18:08 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu and #2 is a list of journalists who may require quotes from time to time, which i would then provide directly or send them here to ask b-a directly ?

19:18:09 ascii_field: then beautiful.

19:18:35 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski as to the 2nd list : you want to build raport with those people. make a habit of taking one to lunch every week, if at all possible.

19:18:43 mircea_popescu: (very fucking possible, they travel on starvation budgets)

19:20:44 pete_dushenski: not to put too fine a point on it, but when and how is 'finance' or 'tech' journalist coming to buttfuck edmonton ? afaik they stay at home, work in nyc, or go to 'conpherences'

19:22:52 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu but that's really just a practical matter, there are other ways to build rapport. the bigger question is 'why a pr agency' and 'why now?'

19:23:15 pete_dushenski: it's surely more than just a make work project for me in your mind

19:26:31 mircea_popescu: you familiar with all the alf parachute talk ?

19:26:57 pete_dushenski: don't wait until you're falling from plane to build parachute ?

19:27:13 mircea_popescu: that stuff. and besides, YOU travel now and again don't you ?

19:27:21 mircea_popescu: you'll be going to a lot more conferences i guess.

19:31:37 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu i certainly traveled plenty pre-monstre, though this will be decidedly diminished for at least 6-12 months. also, such trips only once coincided with a conpherence. going forward, as most traveling i do is personal touristing, these are unlikely to coincide again.

19:31:52 mircea_popescu: because why ?

19:31:53 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7100 @ 0.0006799 = 4.8273 BTC [-]

19:31:56 pete_dushenski: furthermore, the expense of just taking trips to conpherenes seems prohibitive

19:32:09 mircea_popescu: besides, i wouldn't expect this to get anywhere within 12 months. if it does within 36 i'll be impressed.

19:32:23 pete_dushenski: well that's all you needed to say :)

19:33:34 pete_dushenski: if 36 months is mp='impressed', then 48='so-so' and longer than that is 'pete wasn't the right man for the job'

19:33:40 asciilifeform: !up ascii_field

19:33:46 *: ascii_field wonders what interesting things may become part of the picture once enemy can no longer pretend to live in parallel '#b-a never existed' world

19:34:10 mircea_popescu: haha time doesn't scale. but anyway, for it to exist in three years you'll be spending a lot of time on it throughout

19:34:46 mircea_popescu: this is one of those things "anyone" could do except anyone is a socially awkward fuck and anyone lacks the focus and discipline for doing thigns more complex than microwaving.

19:34:57 mircea_popescu: but other than that, anyone could do it!

19:36:01 pete_dushenski: this may well be the right kind of b-a 'contribution' for me, given that i can't code worth a damn.

19:36:25 pete_dushenski: ima mull it over and research a little further into this 'pr' business

19:36:39 mircea_popescu: the only true drawback is that unlike real estate, this is a constant maintenance racket. everything you have at any point won't be useful in 5 years, or even 3. things move too fast. so its not one of those "do this right once it's done forever" stories like alf likes. it's more of a "hold this lamp up".

19:37:12 pete_dushenski: that does sound a bit annoying

19:37:43 pete_dushenski: i quite enjoy my time for reading, writing, etc... hmm.

19:38:06 mircea_popescu: don't use up old age activities while you're young.

19:38:19 mircea_popescu: you don't have the same options once you're in a retirement home.

19:38:22 pete_dushenski: and ftr i'm nowhere near as speedy at these enjoyable activities as mp

19:38:36 pete_dushenski: they take considerable time

19:38:45 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu this is a point.

19:38:46 mircea_popescu: i'm not speedy, i'm just existing on multiple planes at the same time is all.

19:38:57 ascii_field: mircea_popescu's advice is good except in the cases of folks who don't expect to live to retire

19:38:59 pete_dushenski: l0lk

20:38:38 thestringpuller: pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu maybe for contact sports. But the runners are like one step from being a robot.

20:39:52 mircea_popescu: they're still pushing it too hard. not as dangerous in running, sure. but school performance is running the 100meters in fifteen seconds, not trying for eight.

20:41:46 pete_dushenski: well it's our first date afternoon/evening, both free from le petit monstre, so i'm off. cheers !!

20:43:17 BingoBoingo: <ascii_field> i have always seen american football as emblematic of usian anti-intellectualism. glorifying concussions, yes. << It's a tournament, or more a lottery market deal. It's for the poor kids to fight for the chance to make all the money they'll be able to for four years after the drop out of college in teir senior year

20:43:36 BingoBoingo: "Opportunity" and all those buzzwords

20:44:38 BingoBoingo: Then they build a mythology about how Maximum Concussion Sport is the epitome of Opportunity and the chance to earn your own social justice.

20:45:24 BingoBoingo: Canada does this too with Hockey.

20:49:42 BingoBoingo: The big problem with American Football is that it is actually a combat sport, but a polite consensus has developed around not referring to it as such

20:51:27 mircea_popescu: lafond has a pretty good point re the "yo mamma's gonna cash out on being the mother of a got-shot".

20:51:39 mircea_popescu: this is like that except with less shot. technically a step up

20:55:39 BingoBoingo: At least boxing was more honest about the crippling yourself for others amusement there. If you work hard enough and get good enough your head doesn't get hit as much. American football hitting your head against things is kinda mandatory.

20:56:49 BingoBoingo: Recently they've been introducing new rules to football to penalize you from hitting otherpeople's heads in certain ways, but hitting your head is still mandatory.

20:58:31 mircea_popescu: the head being actually a more advantageous place to be hit in than the liver, yeah you get hit.

20:58:34 trinque: mircea_popescu | trinque we need that jobs board yo, teh cup runneth fulleth. << indeed! I estimate having something usable by the end of next weekend
