thimbronion: PeterL: this patch should apply cleanly to the genesis you have:
thimbronion: Hopefully can get dedupe and forwarding working before I'm extradited to Argentina.
signpost: << hue, thought I recognized the name.
punkman: "BREAKING: Saudi oil giant Aramco has denied all rumors and reports of company's intent to mine #Bitcoin"
punkman: so... Saudi's be mining now
punkman: another one for the pile of bodies: Risto Pietila. apparently died in car accident last year.
punkman: "At the heart of Pietilä’s empire was the Dragon Cult, where he was its dragon. That is, an absolute dictator that everyone had to obey immediately. The most loyal then received surprise gifts, usually bitcoins or moneros worth hundreds of euros and sometimes even thousands of euros. However, you could never know if money was coming or not.
punkman: Thus, the members of the cult were always kept on their toes poking."
punkman: "The more submissive you were to the dragon, the more money you got. You also had to take part in his online dragon game and learn its code language. If you believed in the dragon enough, then your dreams would come true. True believers would get everything they ever wanted."
punkman: he was trying to do a "nationalism" in Finland, alt-right/alt-media, "Fixit" (ala Brexit)
punkman: "In fact, it was Pietilä that caused a wide range of mentally ill, drug addicts, alcoholics and other lunatics to flood the alternative media and nationalist activities in general. Normally, such a gang is quickly eliminated from political activity, but not if they are supported by a millionaire.
punkman: "Pietilä himself often wondered how easy it is to buy people. He stressed that it is never worth giving very large sums. Reportedly, a few dozen per person can go a long way, especially if you occasionally give a few hundred."
punkman: "Risto Pietilä was a tragic figure in many ways. On a personal level, he was pleasant to those he respected, but really raw and outrageous to the “ordinary” people. He was a real extremist."
punkman: "Despite all his shortcomings, Pietilä could really have saved Finland by supporting genuine nationalists. However, he never agreed to it, but on the contrary, together with the power elite and polpo, sabotaged and rotted genocidal activities. Without Pietilä's support, Korhonen, Huuhtanen and the violent drunken straps would never have been able
punkman: to rot the nationalist field."
punkman: "Then this autumn, Pietilä died unexpectedly in a very strange car accident. Death looks strongly like suicide. Pietilä was very bipolar in the sense that he spent a couple of months getting excited about something and worked very effectively. Then, however, I was depressed again and everything stopped. He often went on “vacation” to a mental
punkman: hospital."
punkman: only for expert entomologists: Dragon Keynote in Barcelona (August 2019)
signpost: punkman: man, why didn't I join the cult with a rewards program?
thimbronion: Possibly joined only cult that explicitly banned rewards.
asciilifeform: punkman: d00d even grew a reasonably mp-like beard! apparently!
signpost has a mighty beard himself.
signpost: clearly I'm in the wrong profession, just need to go find some bitches that like to be made to lick the toilet seat or w/e
shinohai: signpost: If you need help in finding toilet licking bitches I might be prepared to help is the BTC price is right.
signpost: nah, I am a simple man.
shinohai: Of course hanbot and Nicole are single now probably ......
asciilifeform: not sealed up in pyramid?!11
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-04-23 16:54:58 trinque: still with the one, but found the last one that bakes pies for his father's birthday unsolicited, apparently.
shinohai: Yeah would have thought they would have thrown selves on funeral pyre.
signpost: never got the "manufacture misery as a good in itself" line.
signpost: damn, still getting used to a new keyboard, lol
punkman: << apparently what to do with leftover mpex is "genuine problem"
asciilifeform believe or not, has not been following subj in realtime..
punkman: I wonder if any schmuck bought piece in private when mpex delisted itself
asciilifeform: punkman: bought what ?
punkman: piece of mpex
asciilifeform: punkman: not per mp iirc.
punkman: I remember such thing being implied at the time
asciilifeform admits: treats all mpex source material as works of fiction
asciilifeform: 'Your attempt at passing personal political issues as "curiosity" over a genuine problem is particularly unwelcome.' << lollomatic
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo you know full well you aint getting anyffing but 'dead donkey's ears' there.
asciilifeform: punkman: wassat?
punkman: fluffypony's wife
mats: odds are pretty good mp bought all the outstanding public shares to take it private
asciilifeform: mats: iirc was what he said, at any rate
mats: thought he said an unspecified investor did it
asciilifeform goes, reads the sad chix comment threads, as expected, 0 of interest
asciilifeform: 'inject their malicious nodes into valid node peer lists and consists of only sending malicious nodes via their own peer lists when requested by valid nodes while spamming very large peer lists' << lolwat only nao usg-spamola in that shitcoin ?
thestringpuller: fluffypony gonna end up like Assange at this rate
asciilifeform: 'link the IP address of a node with particular transactions. This is done by spamming peer lists as we discussed above, and then attributing transactions to the node that first shares the transaction via p2p with the spying nodes' << what part of 'plaintext packets are public' do morons not grasp, lol
thestringpuller: mats just like a "private investor" bought S.DICE (was actually voorhees trynna not get raped by the SEC)
asciilifeform: anyways the arrest of the monero derp is not simply to refill the waterfall. but also to boost 'cred' of that particular, and other, 'privacy'(tm)-flavoured shitcoins.
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-08-02 22:54:09 asciilifeform: 'IRS-CI has noted an uptick in criminal syndicates using privacy coins. ' rright, rright, errything to discourage use of actual bitcoin by the gullible/roomtemp iq typical usa 'dissidents'.
asciilifeform: 'see, usg really hates! learn the 45 weird tricks irs doesn't want you to know! monero! tor! signal!' etc
asciilifeform: cattle -- to the stall.
punkman: I stumbled across the "flu comes from space" theory few months ago, fun
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-07-26 12:17:50 asciilifeform: << textbook example of successfully applied discreditation spray.
punkman: did ya know flu completely disappeared worldwide since last March
asciilifeform: punkman: not reappeared yet? at some point i'd expect they'd revert the relabel, s/covid/flu again
punkman: not for lack of testing, at least in EU and most other countries I looked at
punkman: they are saying some flu variants might have gone extinct
punkman: best theory they have (pulled from arse) is that travel restrictions, social distancing and mask are the reason
punkman: but also disappeared from countries with barely any "covid measures"
asciilifeform: punkman: the shuttering of hospitals under banner of covidiocy can similarly magically disappear almost all disease. straight from bed to funeral parlour, now they go, and the mortician doesn't diagnose or increment e.g. flu stats
punkman: yeah that was my line of thinking, but here take a look at EU stats:
punkman: anecdotally, I haven't caught the flu since 2019, and same for friends I've asked. Also met a guy that works in lab and is responsible for reporting flu cases, hasn't had a single one since March 2020
punkman: of course, a LOT of the flu experts have moved on to being covid experts, so pretty much nobody looking into this
signpost: yeah, I'd credit the "those particular bureaucracies are currently clogged, hence 0 metrics" hypothesis
thimbronion: One theory is that the covid-19 test can't distinguish the two
signpost: watch as various other treatable ailments suddenly become much more dangerous as hospitals clog with people of walmart succumbing
signpost: eh, I've got enough meatwot medical to doubt any specific conspiracy theory about covid not existing.
signpost: now... hospitals killing people by not knowing how to treat last time, yes. probably.
signpost: and now, at least in texas, why would we expect ICU capacity to be at a reasonable level in a place that can't run a power grid?
thimbronion: Personally convinced it's real. I tested negative for the flu around March 2020 after being sicker than I've ever been. There was no covid test available at the time.
signpost: frankly I think those dumb fucks were playing with gain-of-function research and let something out.
signpost: I also think that one of the reasons it has been so bad for some is their underlying deplorable health.
signpost: now, what the process of evolution leaves us with is anyone's guess.
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-07-19 11:29:53 asciilifeform: << very interesting subj (possibly more interesting to asciilifeform that other folx, because for a time worked in usg's 'peacewashed' hidden-in-plain-sight 'defensive' bugspray-for-humans program)
signpost: asciilifeform: btw logs going up/down, possibly something going on
asciilifeform: signpost: loads here 10/10
signpost: could be dns issues on my end, getting connection refused
thimbronion: In my case not overweight, but I definitely had vitamin D,B deficiency.
asciilifeform: signpost: didja see packet loss ?
signpost: no packet loss on ping, resolving to
asciilifeform: not to mention that yer talking into it, lol
signpost: oh for fuck's sake, browser has decided that it's https
asciilifeform: lolwat.
signpost: for safety!
asciilifeform not changed anyffin on that box's apache since 1st powered up yr+ ago
asciilifeform: and ftr there is nuffin sslistic on that box.
signpost: nah it's the stupid chromium
asciilifeform suspects typo on signpost's end, which ended up in cache
signpost: anyhow, re: linked thread, definitely likely to get milder with time, with the caveat that we may be introducing protein-spike selection pressure with the highly specific mRNA vaccines
asciilifeform had the 'good, old' original covid. was unpleasant, and contracted random headaches which recurred for nearly year afterwards. but otherwise snoar.
thimbronion: asciilifeform: I also had such headaches!
asciilifeform: thimbronion: iirc not uncommon.
signpost vax'd, but was similarly down with mystery flu in dec '19
signpost: wife also, severely
asciilifeform: asciilifeform's pet went down 1st, and similarly, but somewhat like accounts of being gassed in ww1, lost stamina and 'winded quickly', only recently more or less back to prev.
asciilifeform: it aint the virus, per se, that's bogus.
signpost: certainly, it's the "what's left of small business is ours to destroy at will" and so on.
signpost: "we can require arbitrary mRNA injections" etc
punkman: I believe covid's real, but got too many questions, like any sane person
punkman: "antivax denier terorrists"
punkman: might try ivermectin if I catch teh pox
dulapbot: Logged on 2020-04-04 16:20:04 asciilifeform: lizard system relies on periodic engineered 'crisis'. well-known fact for 100+y.
asciilifeform: '1) start fire 2) buy errything at fire-sale price 3) profit!11'
dulapbot: Logged on 2020-04-04 16:25:43 asciilifeform: if you owned e.g. restaurant, bakery, etc. free & clear, guesswat, nao what remains of it is mortgaged to the parasite class.
signpost: seems like the period of the cycle has been reduced to yearly, too
signpost: curious how the tightening of it plays out.
asciilifeform: not to mention, rentiers laffed all the way to the bank as real estate, 'stonks',etc. doubled, tripled; meanwhile savings of plebes confiscated via inflatism
asciilifeform: precisely like in '90s ru
signpost is for example curious how the 2020 stonk correction was clearly "caused by covid", yet few mention they went almost as deeply at the turn of 2019
signpost: seems like time to press the reset button again and see what shakes out.
punkman: asciilifeform: btw did you go through mononucleosis when young? saw a paper finding correlation between "long covid" and latent Epstein–Barr virus
asciilifeform: punkman: not afaik
asciilifeform: meanwhile:
