00:01:23 Mats_cd03: people are unreasonable when it comes to musk

00:01:27 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 13 @ 0.06373112 = 0.8285 BTC [-] {3}

00:01:28 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 1025 @ 0.0008 = 0.82 BTC [-]

00:01:42 benkay: they just get a whiff and *blammmo* can't keep 'em off me

00:02:03 Mats_cd03: you'd think he was jesus preparing to take the believers to live on mars

00:02:47 Mats_cd03: from the way people pile on TSLA

00:03:29 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 21 @ 0.06340475 = 1.3315 BTC [-] {4}

00:03:39 TheNewDeal: hahaha

00:03:54 TheNewDeal: benkay totally confused me for a second there

00:04:55 TheNewDeal: imagine if he let people purchase his cars with bitcoin

00:05:01 TheNewDeal: reddit would go craaazy

00:05:31 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 28 @ 0.0610754 = 1.7101 BTC [-] {4}

00:05:32 benkay: and nothing would change.

00:05:48 benkay: anyone with the btc to lay on a tesla can lay the cash on it, and probably more easily.

00:05:51 kakobrekla: afaik you can buy tesla with btc (buttstamp guys didit)

00:06:10 benkay: huh

00:06:23 TheNewDeal: did reddit go crazy?!?

00:06:24 benkay: i guess that's what you get when you sell directly - the freedom to take whatever

00:06:32 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 32 @ 0.06006885 = 1.9222 BTC [-] {3}

00:06:40 Mats_cd03: in practical terms it ends up converted to fiat anyway

00:06:53 kakobrekla: http://cdn.kme.si/public/images-cache/640xX/2013/12/18/36025dbe8663ff565475ac75d251530e/52b1bf4763e1f/36025dbe8663ff565475ac75d251530e.jpeg

00:06:55 kakobrekla: there ya go

00:07:24 TheNewDeal: http://mashable.com/2013/12/09/tesla-bitcoin/ this dude bought it for 91.4 BTC. Probably could return it for just as much right now

00:07:24 assbot: Man Buys $103K Tesla Model S With Bitcoin

00:07:27 Mats_cd03: http://www.autoblog.com/2013/12/09/tesla-model-s-bitcoin-purchase-false/

00:07:29 assbot: Tesla not bought with Bitcoin currency after all? - Autoblog

00:07:38 Mats_cd03: TheNewDeal: ^

00:07:45 benkay: wow there's a fucking hack

00:07:49 benkay: buy a tesla with btc

00:07:52 benkay: let it depreciate

00:07:56 benkay: recoup btc

00:07:59 Mats_cd03: you think dealerships have the freedom to hold btc?

00:08:01 *: kakobrekla paid 500btc for his golf cart

00:08:14 Mats_cd03: they get fucking bent over by manufacturers, mate

00:08:19 TheNewDeal: I don't think the dealeship would allow your to return it for the same amount of btc

00:08:53 benkay: hang on i may be a few too beers deep to keep track of my +/- axes

00:09:35 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 10675 @ 0.00079982 = 8.5381 BTC [-]

00:09:37 benkay: buy car, btc appreciates, car depreciates, get fucked.

00:10:27 TheNewDeal: yes but this would have been a different situation, as bitcoin was $1000+ at the time

00:11:38 BingoBoingo: mike_c: This is a troubling increase in hash

00:11:48 benkay: TheNewDeal: mhm.

00:12:21 mike_c: yeah, we lose. it's ok, we had good odds.

00:12:28 TheNewDeal: last two changes effed you guys

00:12:44 TheNewDeal: I guess the 12.44 wasn't that bad

00:12:51 TheNewDeal: this current potential change and the last

00:15:41 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 2505 @ 0.00080059 = 2.0055 BTC [+]

00:17:43 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 10 @ 0.0600106 = 0.6001 BTC [+] {4}

00:19:29 TheNewDeal: I wouldn't mind if the hash jumped off a cliff right now

00:19:38 TheNewDeal: or took a big stumble

00:20:18 TheNewDeal: tried to make a little hedge bet on with the next change and it backfired in my face

00:20:40 benkay: don't bet against diff, boss

00:21:10 TheNewDeal: why does everyone say that?

00:21:43 TheNewDeal: part of the bet requires an actual decent estimate on what the diff will be at that point

00:23:56 benkay: hey nerds redis or memcached?

00:24:59 punkman: redis has more useful data structures

00:27:24 benkay: decision made thank you punkman

00:28:26 punkman: benkay: maybe of interest: http://aphyr.com/posts/307-call-me-maybe-redis-redux

00:28:27 assbot: Call me maybe: Redis redux

00:31:15 benkay: thanks again punkman

00:31:33 benkay: i'm not facing lots of writes but rather reads

00:31:58 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 2780 @ 0.00080059 = 2.2256 BTC [+]

00:32:07 punkman: guy's doing some good there with that Jepsen thing

00:32:14 punkman: *some good work

00:34:00 benkay: aaaand i may not even use a cacheing layer at the end of the day

00:35:00 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 15 @ 0.06491932 = 0.9738 BTC [-] {4}

00:36:09 TheNewDeal: wondering how many food stamps have been purchased with bitcoin

00:39:04 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9645 @ 0.00080333 = 7.7481 BTC [+] {2}

00:40:32 Mats_cd03: what universe do you live in

00:43:08 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 4100 @ 0.00079845 = 3.2736 BTC [-]

00:44:42 TheNewDeal: it was a joooke dude

00:45:10 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 22 @ 0.06209101 = 1.366 BTC [-] {6}

00:46:18 moiety: amiga?

00:47:38 benkay: hola aiga

00:47:39 benkay: amiga

00:48:04 moiety: hola!

00:48:51 moiety: firefox just lost five pieces of work that ive been doing for past two days, so pissed off

00:49:59 moiety: well not really pissed off, but it wasnt fun. how are you benkay?

00:52:25 benkay: brutal, bruja

00:52:34 benkay: i'm well

00:52:50 benkay: doing some exploratory hacking. it's coming along nicely.

00:53:03 moiety: sounds interesting

00:53:49 benkay: i'm sure you'll see something about it before i die

00:53:57 benkay: but also probably after the cardano ships

00:56:56 moiety: not the smallest window of time XD but i'll wait patiently :]

00:57:22 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 11 @ 0.06 = 0.66 BTC [+]

00:58:55 benkay: http://bitbet.us/bet/859/cardano-to-ship-in-2014/

00:58:55 assbot: BitBet - Cardano to Ship in 2014 :: 1.08 B (96%) on Yes, 0.05 B (4%) on No | closing in 6 months 1 week| weight: 85`913 (100`000 to 1)

00:59:24 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 28 @ 0.06 = 1.68 BTC [+]

01:00:02 benkay: TheNewDeal: that TSLA bet is interesting - aren't we p.close to 250 already?

01:00:41 mike_c: TheNewDeal: everyone says that because 1) you can't draw a line from previous diff changes to future (see moore's law), and 2) despite this it just keeps marching up.

01:01:29 benkay: lol ya diff is watching bitbet just to fuck people who bet against it

01:01:40 TheNewDeal: mike_c , what I'm saying is that some people don't know how to calculate a good difficulty

01:01:41 mike_c: diff is mean-spirited asshole.

01:02:04 TheNewDeal: April, May, and :June were all Nos

01:03:44 mike_c: ok, so with your superior prognostication, what weight did you get on the may bet?

01:03:45 TheNewDeal: guess it was just april and may

01:04:31 TheNewDeal: never said I had superior prognostication

01:04:48 mike_c: hehe. it was implied by "some people can't calculate"

01:04:48 TheNewDeal: I bet at the end of march

01:04:53 TheNewDeal: bet was started at the end of january

01:05:26 TheNewDeal: here's the thing

01:05:29 mike_c: k. betting that difficulty won't double in a month is not "betting against diff"

01:05:43 TheNewDeal: The majority of those that bet Yes on May bet early

01:05:48 TheNewDeal: when it's much harder to tell

01:06:17 TheNewDeal: regardless

01:06:58 TheNewDeal: look at the majority of bets there

01:07:04 TheNewDeal: not just my late bet

01:07:10 TheNewDeal: I'm typically a conservative better

01:07:23 mike_c: the majority were late when it was obvious.

01:07:26 TheNewDeal: I would rather earn a sure, small portion, versus risk a lot

01:07:32 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 14372 @ 0.00080006 = 11.4985 BTC [+]

01:08:14 TheNewDeal: after 84'000 weight, there were only 2 Yes bets

01:08:26 mike_c: all i'm saying is, if you think you have an edge, whip up some IDIFF.SEP contracts.

01:08:28 TheNewDeal: and those people were probably just looking at pot odds

01:08:40 TheNewDeal: I don't have the capital to trade on mpoe

01:08:50 TheNewDeal: would love to, but just not my reality

01:08:51 mike_c: coinbr is full featured these days.

01:09:15 TheNewDeal: staying far from coinbr for the time being

01:09:22 TheNewDeal: no offense, just not my cup of tea

01:09:25 mike_c: why?

01:09:43 TheNewDeal: I trading what I own and owning what I trade

01:09:47 TheNewDeal: i like *

01:09:59 mike_c: you think coinbr is too much counterparty risk?

01:10:27 TheNewDeal: I have no problems with jurov

01:11:03 mike_c: i'm not trying to bust balls, i'm honestly curious.

01:11:29 TheNewDeal: let me throw out a hypothetical here

01:11:49 TheNewDeal: let's say I am comfortable investing 10 BTC through coinbr ( I'm not)

01:12:05 TheNewDeal: to me, a healthy return over one year (in BTC) would be 10%

01:12:15 TheNewDeal: that makes 11 BTC

01:12:27 TheNewDeal: subtract account management fees, and thats 10.76

01:12:44 mike_c: ok, i'm with you

01:13:09 TheNewDeal: with NO withdrawls, that has just taken 1/4 of my profits over a year

01:14:45 mike_c: ok. so point #1, you think it's too expensive. but why wouldn't you be comfortable putting in 10 btc?

01:14:57 TheNewDeal: that's over 1/2 of my ownership

01:15:06 TheNewDeal: not an early adopter

01:15:15 mike_c: but you would be comfortable putting that much on bitbet?

01:15:20 TheNewDeal: most definitely

01:15:21 TheNewDeal: for instance

01:15:43 TheNewDeal: if I put down 10 BTC on this bet http://bitbet.us/bet/635/1btc-10-000-usd/

01:15:43 assbot: BitBet - 1BTC >= $10,000 USD :: 75 B (15%) on Yes, 415.18 B (85%) on No | closing in 5 months 22 hours | weight: 42`696 (100`000 to 1)

01:15:54 TheNewDeal: the return is sitting at ~9% over a 5 month period

01:16:00 TheNewDeal: and it's a hedge

01:16:13 mike_c: interesting. jurov, you need more WoT :)

01:16:21 TheNewDeal: it has nothing to do with trust

01:16:34 mike_c: well, it does if you're comfortable putting 10 btc in bitbet and not coinbr

01:16:41 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9528 @ 0.00080251 = 7.6463 BTC [+]

01:17:12 TheNewDeal: coinbr is restricted to MPOE stocks, and I'm very unfamiliar with them compared to those who trade

01:17:23 TheNewDeal: on bitbet, I can pick and choose what I feel comfortable with

01:17:45 mike_c: ok. lemme ask this then. if you thought you could get a 20% return on coinbr in a year, would you invest 10 btc?

01:18:22 TheNewDeal: perhaps less

01:19:25 TheNewDeal: what I would really like to do is start off with 2 or so BTC until I feel comfortable with it

01:19:29 TheNewDeal: but that would be a waste of money

01:20:05 mike_c: how would you feel if the monthly fee were lower and the trading fees higher?

01:20:35 TheNewDeal: dislike

01:20:50 mike_c: well.. something's gotta cost. brokers aren't free.

01:21:00 TheNewDeal: I would prefer that he were like a hedge fund manager, making % off your winnings

01:21:16 mike_c: hm. hedge fund managers get a fee too.

01:21:24 mike_c: besides performance fees

01:21:34 kakobrekla: depends.

01:21:36 kakobrekla: :D

01:21:36 TheNewDeal: usually is a tiny percentage of what they manage

01:21:37 punkman: tweaked bitbet strategy: 10 BTC for 500x 0.02 bets, net gain 3.92 BTC

01:22:03 TheNewDeal: punkman, have you done this successfully?

01:22:14 punkman: I think I will try

01:22:20 punkman: just testing over past bets

01:22:34 mike_c: except kako, who won't take any money unless he thinks he earns it (very un-hedge fund like)

01:22:52 kakobrekla: lol, less scammy.

01:26:07 TheNewDeal: the thing I also like about bitbet is that you can pick off bets that are almost for sure winners, and look for a certain return

01:26:17 moiety: nothing wrong with that, i'm same

01:26:37 mike_c: right up until you're wrong :)

01:27:39 moiety: how can you be wrong wanting to earn your money XD

01:27:39 punkman: well if this retarded strategy can do 46% I think I got some margin for error

01:28:04 TheNewDeal: that doesnt make sense to me

01:28:13 TheNewDeal: arent you just picking and choosing past bets that would make money?

01:28:18 punkman: no

01:28:23 TheNewDeal: you're betting on everything?

01:28:26 kakobrekla: 46% what ?

01:28:45 punkman: 10.16 BTC in, net gain 4.59 BTC

01:28:52 punkman: betting on no, skipping certain bets

01:28:58 TheNewDeal: lol

01:29:02 TheNewDeal: how would you know which to skip?

01:29:11 mike_c: punkman: you should look into some of the theory about backtesting. like, you can't use the same data you develop your hypothesis on to test your strategy.

01:29:33 kakobrekla: yeap

01:29:39 kakobrekla: well you can

01:29:44 kakobrekla: but it will be shit prolly.

01:29:51 mike_c: heh, yes. "can't" is a strong word.

01:29:54 kakobrekla: :D

01:33:12 TheNewDeal: is there a minimum for password protected bets?

01:33:24 mike_c: TheNewDeal: last comment from me, i'm really not trying to sell you. But that 'tiny percentage' you were talking about from hedge fund managers is usually 2%. which is the same fee as coinbr in your 10 BTC example.

01:34:10 TheNewDeal: 2% is more like a fee for an index fund

01:34:30 kakobrekla: the retarded standard is 2/20

01:34:53 TheNewDeal: 2% fee and 20% of profit?

01:35:12 kakobrekla: yes 2% mgmt fee, 20 profit allocation

01:35:35 *: kakobrekla will burn your money for free.

01:35:37 TheNewDeal: mike_c if you read what I said, I told you that I was NOT comfortable risking 10 BTC on coinbr/mpoe

01:35:45 TheNewDeal: I said something more like 2 BTC to begin with

01:35:54 mike_c: yup, i got that. just talking about the fees.

01:36:13 TheNewDeal: ;;calc .02*12/2

01:36:14 gribble: 0.12

01:36:14 punkman: mike_c, wanna make some synthetic data for testing?

01:37:03 TheNewDeal: punkman, are you betting both sides, or are you just picking winners :p

01:37:07 mike_c: punkman: you can cut up the data you have into pieces. but I really don't think there's enough for much confidence in results.

01:37:49 mike_c: strategy like MPIF's is really based more on a belief about how the system works rather than statistical analysis.

01:38:59 mike_c: but even that was better tested. hypothesis was formed before the analysis, not as a result of the analysis.

01:43:03 TheNewDeal: mike_c my reason against coinbr is more of opportunity cost versus harboring any malice against the site or jurov

01:43:58 mike_c: understood. i just see you as a good potential customer for coinbr, so I was trying to dig into why you were hesitant. i think i get it.

01:44:58 TheNewDeal: quiz question. If I were on coinbr, and then bought a MPOE account, what would he charge to transfer shares

01:45:22 mike_c: i believe withdrawal/asset transfers are the same

01:45:31 TheNewDeal: gotcha

16:37:50 mircea_popescu: people read taki's column for him being taki and so on.

16:37:56 Cosmos: Hmmm

16:38:20 Cosmos: anyway the ppl who put websites in their sig's in forums..get paid by said websites....... for the free publicity/exposure......

16:38:27 Cosmos: those people are almost all anon...

16:38:42 Cosmos: and w/ relatively low / obscure unknown rep, too

16:38:56 mircea_popescu: sure. my girl paid people once in the same way.

16:38:57 Cosmos: excluding the 'personalities' and hero members etc

16:38:59 nubbins`: "paid" is almost not the right word

16:39:08 Cosmos: that's why I called it 'tipping'

16:39:10 nubbins`: someone tosses you a couple of pennies, you don't call it a paycheque

16:39:13 Cosmos: just as a token of appreciation

16:39:45 BingoBoingo: I think you misunderstand the root of tipping.

16:40:11 BingoBoingo: The word tip cleanly refers to a bribe of sorts... To Insure Prompt service.

16:40:24 nubbins`: BingoBoingo: you mean tipping isn't when you give someone money because you pity them for wasting everyone's time?

16:41:13 BingoBoingo: nubbins`: Well, tipping is a present you give somone you pity to save you from inconvenience

16:41:23 Cosmos: LOL

16:41:43 Cosmos: well I'll take your 'looking-down-on' & accept it gladly in my wallet address

16:45:18 Cosmos: ok its a donation, not a bribe

16:45:27 Cosmos: you donate because I will change the world for good

16:45:31 mircea_popescu: whereas tips fall squarely in the charity thing

16:46:55 Cosmos: Because they know too well, it would corrupt them even more, very quickly

16:47:00 mircea_popescu: power is taken, not given, little grashopper. and your humble nonsense makes you both the most dangerous and the least likely to succeed character.

16:47:05 nubbins`: ^

16:47:54 Cosmos: ahh you use 'Western'! my gf wants to slap me everytime i use that word, she identifies with it too much

16:48:06 Cosmos: That's fine

16:48:31 mircea_popescu: yes really.

16:48:32 Cosmos: I thought they'd be dressed

16:48:40 mircea_popescu: ghandi didn't like to do laundry

16:48:45 mircea_popescu: so he mostly didn't dress.

16:48:46 nubbins`: who does?!

16:48:55 Cosmos: Btw almost everytime I talk, I'm half-trolling, but I always mean well

20:14:19 benkay: <mircea_popescu> decimation: now, why do you suppose those who work in the bezzle economy are showered with special favors while those who work in the "real economy" are treated as serfs? <<< here's the thing : real estate agents are certified, and have to be bondend in many places, and have to follow best practices, and can and are put to the coals ifthey do not.

20:14:27 benkay: reminds me of a great hustle a neighbor got put through recently

20:15:12 benkay: house immediately downhill from the 'rents went on sale for 900k, reasoning being "well it was built by and inhabited by Dr. Hawthorne of this grand street a few blocks over who also built the insanitarium at the top of said street which is now a seminary"

20:16:25 benkay: the people doing the sale failed to do it on their own at 900k, so this vulture swooped in, started ratcheting the price down and as all the buyers trickled in said something along the lines of "I know that this isn't really what you're looking for, but how about I give you a call sometime next week and I'll show you some houses that might fit your budget and expectations a little bit better".

20:16:52 benkay: two months later, the house has been dragged down from 900k to 700k, and that broker has straight ghosted with all the leads she generated via excellent hustle.

20:17:50 benkay: so while best practices are a thing and brokers do get put to the coals, as with all regulated things only the dumb and most obviously rule-breaky are going to get their feet torched. i can't imagine it being any other way with programmering - the smart ones will shift the blame to the dumb ones, who will take the fall. age old story.

20:18:29 benkay: and what is this "not liable for errors" crap y'all are spouting? i have to fight for that clause in every contract I take on.

20:30:50 mircea_popescu: benkay> two months later, the house has been dragged down from 900k to 700k, and that broker has straight ghosted with all the leads she generated via excellent hustle. << dumbass approach imo, but hey

20:31:16 mircea_popescu: but that aside, the openssl recent string of bugs WOULD have been of the coal kind

20:31:48 mircea_popescu: which is exactly how it was argued for software responsibility immunity in the 80s : that ALL software failures are clearly of a coal-abl etype, and so not granting immunity would make software "impossible"

20:32:07 benkay: nah, torch anyone who implemented it in their own codebasen. no crime in releasing shit to the world, only a crime to put that shit in your cliquot

20:32:08 mircea_popescu: rms and co really meant "bad software" but just said "software", and "plain language" being what it is, who's to know the difference.

20:32:24 mircea_popescu: as if bitcoin'd suffer from a complete ban on all the tard venues, or computers from a complete disappearance of bad software

20:32:41 mircea_popescu: benkay methinks you might have to brush up on corp law :)

20:32:49 benkay: indubitably.

20:32:50 mircea_popescu: nobody'd put it in without specific representations and certifications

20:33:00 mircea_popescu: an' warranties an' indemnities

20:34:06 mircea_popescu: anyway, i wish i recall who wrote the example with the locks, in favour of software tort immunity

20:34:32 mircea_popescu: it went something like, "if a lock fails that lock can be replaced, but if software failed ALL a company's products fail at the same time so there's nobody to absorb the costs"

20:37:53 mircea_popescu: he also merged heartbleed into the codebase.

20:38:19 mircea_popescu: all in the name of the "needed" pki, which was never needed by us, it was needed by nsa.

20:38:51 benkay: does this go for all open source mistakes?

20:39:01 mircea_popescu: the notion that derps imagining themselves involved and part of and etc still treat hearn as anything but vomit behind a bar is perhaps the best argument against democracy.

20:39:15 mircea_popescu: well there's mistakes and there's "mistakes"

20:39:29 mircea_popescu: little girl taking a drink from suspicious man in overcoat is not making a mistake

20:39:33 mircea_popescu: is simply enacting a death wish.

20:42:26 benkay: but he's not wearing an overcoat, he's got a nice pair of slacks and a collared tee, and everyone except the weirdos in the corner are drinking with him.

20:43:24 mircea_popescu: right. and hearn isn't 12.

20:43:43 mircea_popescu: fancy that, adult world has like two or even three tiers of complexity on top of what you find in coloring books.

20:43:45 benkay: i thought hearn was handing out potions in this example.

20:59:53 decimation: My point about lack of liability has to do with why microsoft hasn't gotten sued for writing crapware that certainly has done demonstrable harm to users

21:00:43 benkay: i always figured that was the insane war chest they have and the mountain of paper under which they'd bury anyone.

21:00:58 benkay: i guess tho that's an artifact of operating in an environment where they're not held liable for their work?

21:03:06 mircea_popescu: basically, "self-seeking" addicted college kids being given the reins of the country.

21:08:13 mircea_popescu: well, security was not the first priority. it rarely is, when going over new space.

21:08:24 mircea_popescu: security wasn't high on the list of gold seeking miners, or of cowboys,

21:08:32 mircea_popescu: or of early seafaring explorers

21:08:36 mircea_popescu: magellan died of fucking stupidity.

21:09:21 mircea_popescu: we'll finally be in a position to put some fences up and make sense of the damned thing.

21:09:23 decimation: yeah but the difference is that those first 'explorers' were generally unable to dominate the world's market

21:09:23 asciilifeform: security is only one casualty of the crud flood

21:09:41 mircea_popescu: decimation this is a false impression, artefact of your context

22:33:48 mircea_popescu: "And more to the point here, it is the reason why women often feel that men have "the upper hand" in relationships. That feeling doesn't exist because men are dominant over women or have some kind of real advantage; it is just because men are strongly motivated by sex, and therefore get into relationships with girls they don't really care about - or at least, they get into relationships with girls who care more about t

22:33:49 mircea_popescu: hem than they do about the girls, even if only by a small amount. In other words, men only have the upper hand because they have this tendency to play below their league."

22:35:28 benkay: going back to yesterdays conversation about the dearth of leadership and stones etc

22:35:34 mircea_popescu: sure. and he goes into full retard mode right after, proposing that somehow "not givingit up easy" helps a woman's position.

22:36:00 mircea_popescu: it so happens that i won't even consider women that don't, i'm pretty sure the top generally doesn't, and so it's a quite dangerous strat.

22:39:50 benkay: well if we can rathole on the evolutionary psychology thing playing hard to get raises the bar for potential impregnators.

22:40:02 benkay: "gotta work for it", or raep.

22:40:52 mircea_popescu: if she doesn't have thesense to realise she's accidentally run into the absolute best, she can't be all that smart in the first place.

22:40:55 mircea_popescu: who wants dummies ?

22:41:47 benkay: judging competence is hard, though. ergo heuristics like playing hard to get.

22:42:25 benkay: but...0.01% oslt

22:43:06 mircea_popescu: well yeah. but by playing hard to get you may get +10 on your average catch, but also get the guarantee you're never getting in the bed of that 0.whatever%

22:43:09 thestringpuller: sluts who play hard to get: oxymoron or profound truth?

22:43:12 mircea_popescu: this also isn't a very good strat.

22:46:13 thestringpuller: instagator how? Like "you should get some hugs from them cute girls" ?

22:46:44 mircea_popescu: thestringpuller the idea being that an utter whore denying the pack leader any fucking has a decent chance to drive him mad and end up in some sort of "that obscure object of desire " situation.

22:47:18 mircea_popescu: basically her refusal to give him what she gives the whole pack is a slight, but one he has no redress for : she's already an outcast.

22:48:09 benkay: thestringpuller: more like she gets the girls primed
