BingoBoingo: decimation: USG has been sending rednecks overseas since tripoli
BingoBoingo: Tripoli was prolly the West's last decisive victory over Abdullah
decimation: back then they had the sense to take them home at least
assbot: Terminal Lance - Terminal Lance #302 “Pirate Sword”
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Cousin actually after leaving broke his pirate sword testing it against a $15 Walmart machete on honeysuckle in the back yard
decimation: if augustus were transported into our time, he would wonder why the us spends blood & treasure to "occupy" lands without expecting tribute or gold mines
BingoBoingo: decimation: Well, it might have made sense if Blood for Oil was an actual thing and not a hippie chant
assbot: Terminal Lance - Terminal Lance #328 “Avengers Assemble”
decimation: my point is ... why isn't iraq New Texas with Bush City as its capitol?
BingoBoingo: Cause suckitude.
BingoBoingo: Arabs could have been the new Mexicans, but... Progressivism
assbot: AirBNB Logos. : Photo
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 6 @ 0.17800014 = 1.068 BTC [-] {3}
BingoBoingo: benkay: Wait airBnB ignores fags nao?
benkay: who's a what now?
BingoBoingo: benkay: Well, apparently airbnd is all about the pussy nao
BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: What is the BTC/Meat price?
danielpbarron: one sec, I'll put up some new orders
BingoBoingo digs KoL account out of the abyss
danielpbarron: it's about 3`180`927 MEAT per 1 XCP
BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: Translate that to BTC or ATC
mircea_popescu: <decimation> my point is ... why isn't iraq New Texas with Bush City as its capitol? << same reason the eu didn't take on turkey when it had the chance.
BingoBoingo: Or I'll comprehend XCP if you quote spectral pickles as the underlying
danielpbarron: my equation is {meat/mr. a}*{btc/xcp}*{usd/btc}/10
decimation: turkey would be a much better deal than greece
danielpbarron: i get the btc/xcp price from which quotes the latest trade on the DEX (I think)
BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: WTF is this marketmaking based on precise calculations???
BingoBoingo: No, seriously sounds like a way to lose a lot of money
danielpbarron: well, the market cap of MEAT is less than 10 XCP so I'm not too worried
BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: How much ATC or BTC is 10 XCP?
BingoBoingo: Can't find a good quote
danielpbarron: 10 XCP is about 0.04127 BTC
danielpbarron: if the DEX is even accurate
dub: fuck is xcp
danielpbarron: counterparty money (it's like mastercoin)
BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: So how many meat for 0.05 BTC?
danielpbarron: BingoBoingo, 38`538`008 MEAT per 0.05 BTC
BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: I'll take all the meat then, post address
danielpbarron: well I don't have that much meat; are you saying you'll pay extra for it?
danielpbarron: I wouldn't mind donating for some mr. a's to get that much meat for you
danielpbarron: thereby converting my USD into BTC :D
BingoBoingo: Well, I want to help put this thing out of its misery.
BingoBoingo: But avoiding putting BTC into USD
BingoBoingo: How many BTC to kill this asset?
benkay: aw now you've gone and hurt danielpbarron's feelings!
danielpbarron: 0.05 is more than enough to buy the 24`541`500 MEAT that I have ready to go
BingoBoingo: Well, Sounds like the cap on this then is well under 0.05
danielpbarron: I'd rather do it on the DEX so it gets tracked on the top assets graph, but I'm not gonna turn down BTC if you send it here: 1MbPpiePrxuQLMeGZZJiYPbuta5farHyto
danielpbarron: I can send the MEAT to any BTC address, but it's probably best if you get an address from if you want to trade them easily
danielpbarron: unless you're already running counterparty on one of your machines
BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: Send the meat to Atruk 947952eaf8724b41837f490a6e8049810399651cb2725c383a28f822b2350929 I want the actual meat
benkay: <BingoBoingo> How many BTC to kill this asset? // doesn't sound like there's much trading in MEAT's future.
BingoBoingo: All of it
danielpbarron: alright well i'm just gonna donate for some more meat to cover it again
danielpbarron: that's a deal if you want; I'll send you 27`000`000 actual KoL meat for 0.05 BTC
benkay: the misery persists!
BingoBoingo: Imma just spend it on spectral pickles anyways

hanbot: ty kindly BB. was going to pester mike_c for the reasoning behind closing wol betting @ 21 blocks to game closure, as opposed to whatever, 50, 10, etc. anyone else know?
BingoBoingo: Maybe number correlates to buttplug size?
hanbot: lol whose?
BingoBoingo: Well, whoever is a size 21
hanbot: reasonable enough, i'm satisfied.

BingoBoingo: VanCleef: Were you the NYDFS van cleef

gribble: cedivad was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 3 weeks, 1 day, 12 hours, 18 minutes, and 53 seconds ago: <cedivad> Barber claimed that they were payments to suppliers, but he has still to prove that.

nubbins`: ;;later tell BingoBoingo we've never printed on rugs, can't imagine it'd be very nice
gribble: The operation succeeded.
nubbins`: we do, however, cut rugs on the regular
jurov: maybe he meant to use knitting machine instead of print
nubbins`: i think rugs are hooked
nubbins`: i admittedly have no idea but it seems like a fairly industrious process

assbot: BBC News - Microsoft set to axe 18,000 jobs
dub: if only they used actual axes
diana_coman: if it's of any interest to anyone, a bit of playing with the logs:
assbot: “Get one just like bitcoin people” in Ossasepia
mircea_popescu: No better test to see text mining fail, it seems, than applying it to irc logs on bitcoin-assets: a careful calibration of state of the art tools yielded only a clear case of “by the time you figure out and implement everything needed to obtain even reasonable results, you surely did the “automated” work at least 5 times if not 10, if not 100.”
mircea_popescu: this is proof of intelligence i say
mircea_popescu: given the enthusiasm of text mining people << this is the enthusiasm of the doomed - it doesn't reflect anything on the direct avenue, but is merely the nervous laugh of someone who just got cut in half.
chetty: well to mine anything you sort of need to know what you are looking for
mircea_popescu: text mining people are among the few who appreciate the problem of text deluge close to its actual size, which is another way to say they actually know we're surrounded by uncontrolled wildfire. that they pretend like you know, pissing on it works is more the result of their psychological need to fit in with the rest of the crowd, that blisfully ignores the problem, than anything else.
mircea_popescu: in any case the end of civilisation is here simply because we've lost control of text.
mircea_popescu: chetty yeah. it becomes problematic when you provably can't know, yet you still have to. this is a macroproblem of "nobody knows wtf the tax code says"
diana_coman: mircea_popescu yeah, I kind of expected that, but as I said - it was more for the fun and getting to read all that + there is proof now out there
pankkake: shouldn't common words be excluded? I used to do that to IRC stats
diana_coman: pankkake, I excluded the most common ones
diana_coman: I guess it depends on what you consider common
diana_coman: I excluded stuff like "the" "a" etc
diana_coman: obviously, excluding some more could make it a bit better, but from what I saw, it doesn't get it too far still
pankkake: right
ThickAsThieves: as i read diana's post, it occurs to me how much this channel is like the Howard Stern show
diana_coman: simply because of the fact that the discussions really are pretty much about everything and in all forms and shapes
ThickAsThieves: mp is Stern, providing most content
ThickAsThieves: while friends like Robin and baba incite it
ThickAsThieves: nubbins, me, ascii, etc
ThickAsThieves: we even have the sexual bent
ThickAsThieves: in the content
ThickAsThieves: Stern also had similar standards for guests of the show
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves what standards are those ?
diana_coman: ThickAsThieves it clearly is driven mainly by a few people
mircea_popescu: o nm, i misread
ThickAsThieves: like he'd try to get certain people on
ThickAsThieves: and wouldnt allow some
ThickAsThieves: and enjoyed company of sluts
chetty: haha the b-a reality show, comming soon
mircea_popescu: lol. and had wild hair.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves can you summarize them standards ?
ThickAsThieves: shit i havent watched/listened in years
ThickAsThieves: surely google can help
ThickAsThieves: his movie is pretty good too, if you havent seen it
mircea_popescu: pankkake actually if i had to somehow do what she's trying to do, i'd cheat : get the words put into !s and ;;ud, look three lines prior for the sentence they appear in, build the sentence tree and then use that grammatical pattern on the whole log.
mircea_popescu: extract all words which work syntactically in the same manner as the searched terms.
dub: all I remember is the awful scene with that chick raping a woofer
mircea_popescu: because what the search does is it says "this is an important AND OBSCURE" term.
mircea_popescu: whereas you want to see important and anti-obscure words.
ThickAsThieves: dub it was indeed memorable
mircea_popescu: dub you know that's what i know of stern too ?
mircea_popescu: o wait, he also had a girl that fucked her mother on once ? or what was it ?
ThickAsThieves: he had all kindsa shit like that
ThickAsThieves: geez, Stern is 60?
dub: that and he's weird al's doppleganger
diana_coman: mircea_popescu uhm, the structures did not seem so uniform, but it could be worth a try
mircea_popescu: dub nah, weird al is all fat. stern looks more like zappa imo
assbot: FCC fines of The Howard Stern Show - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ThickAsThieves: !s diana_coman
ThickAsThieves: what brings you here diana_coman?
mircea_popescu: lmao wait, wikipedia has a page dedicated to "fcc fines stern" ?! ahahah.
ThickAsThieves: you are behind MP, you need an SEC fine page
diana_coman: ThickAsThieves curiosity mainly; I've been around for a while, but I don't talk much
ThickAsThieves: or, hell, FCC too
ThickAsThieves: cool cool
mircea_popescu: !up andreas__
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves nah, i don't. i'd much rather google spit out trilema than wikipedia.
ThickAsThieves: true, i guess we can always detail your exploits in the b-a wiki
mircea_popescu: hm i guess this is actually open for some comparison.
mircea_popescu: hey everyone that is awake : please put in a list of five words that you'd estimate are the key terms for [your interest of] b-a
mircea_popescu: then we can actually score how well the computer did.
dub: scam scam scam scam and scam
chetty: people have 'fixed' interests like that?
ThickAsThieves: i cant do it without losing context
mircea_popescu: chetty yeah, as i said that i was sitting here going wtf i have nfi what i should write now.
mircea_popescu: this is what i get for being impulsive.
ThickAsThieves: like i could just say bitcoin, or mircea_popescu
pankkake: surprising that scam wasn't one of the top words
mircea_popescu: i mean something like ipo ceo scam mpex bitbet i guess, but wtf. i have no idea i'll be interested in what ppl say BEFORE they say it.
pankkake: scam, troll, tits, slander, ?
diana_coman: ThickAsThieves that's what the computer said!
pankkake: scam, troll, tits, slander, AMAZING
dub: computer says no
chetty: thats the whole thing, data is nothing without context
mircea_popescu: AMAZING COMPANY!
ThickAsThieves: but really it's mor elike: bitcoin current affairs & discourse
mircea_popescu: someone should send dub a viking hat anyway.
dub: it wouldnt fit over my batman mask
mircea_popescu: Viking-Batman Dub.
mircea_popescu: now that's a comic i'd check out.
los_pantalones: repartee peers encyclopedic knowledge logs
mircea_popescu: !s repartee
mircea_popescu: you lose :D
mircea_popescu: <<< the most notable thing i see here is that "first" and "last" have the same motherfucking weight.
mircea_popescu: do that on twitter/reddit/btctalk/coindesk w/e, it's all FIRST and LARGEST and etc.
mircea_popescu: and wtf is "mbuy
los_pantalones: why is "well" on here but not "welp" ?
ThickAsThieves: cuz no one says welp
mircea_popescu: imo it's the best popcorn pic ON THE INTERNETS
mircea_popescu: los_pantalones you understand, this is based on the logs, it's not meta.

mircea_popescu: diana_coman users-by-lines is already in users-by-words and per-user-mean-wordlength'd have been moar interesting.
assbot: #bitcoin-assets stats
mircea_popescu: which also brings us to a disparity : "users by lines, last 12 months 2.) mircea_popescu 92547" according to kako
mircea_popescu: 's stats ; logs between 26 March 2013 and 12 June 2014. mircea_popescu 91479 according to diana_coman. well which is it ? cause these can't both be right
chetty: navel gazing
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform drops from 18964 in 12 months to 16627 in 15 months.
mircea_popescu: chetty hm ?
chetty: just noticing the self absorbtion of a channel mostly talking about itself, perhaps b-a is becoming enlightened?
kakobrekla: mircea_popescu at least one day got thrown out from the log data so there wont be 100% match
mircea_popescu: first, they mocked others, but i didn't say anything because they weren't mocking me. then they started talking about themselves but i didn't say anything because i wasn't there. and now there's nothing to talk about.
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla you mean cuz assbot didn't see it ? how did it put it in the stats then ?
kakobrekla: no, its in the logs it just that we couldnt make sense of it
mircea_popescu: you are making sense right now.
kakobrekla: on i side not, i figured it out now whats the problem but whatever doesnt matter.

mircea_popescu: it's a fucking fixed volume deflationary currency. it can't even jokingly contemplate such an arrangement.
mircea_popescu: so what, this is the strat, "prevent bitcoin from raping the usd by making it unable to work like a currency" ? lulz. people will just move to connecticut.
mircea_popescu: this is roughly the equivalent of a license to build boats provided they're oar powered and leak.

mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves i like the part where someone tipped him three fiddy

mircea_popescu: which i bet you will result in a criminal complaint cca 2015ish.
assbot: Survey Results | Bitcoin Survey : Bitcoin
mircea_popescu: that's the funny thing with the usg bureaucracy, the entire "make the laws too complex and then add regulation" thing used to work in their favour cca 1980-1990. but once that starts moving it doesn't stop, and now they're left behind.
mircea_popescu: i don't think i've ever had an encounter with any sort of govt employee where i couldn't have sued him into the dirt if so inclined.
mthreat: mircea_popescu: what a great "DOS" type attack - do things such as tip them small amounts, so they have to file paperwork or be guilty of something
mircea_popescu: mthreat this is the problem of half baked systems. just like sm sites are structurally vulnerable because they misimplement the wot, just like the phone corps & banks are vulnerable because they misimplement crypto,
mircea_popescu: everyone in the old world is very, very vulnerable to a long long list of new attacks.
mircea_popescu: stuff like goatse and rick rolling are merely playful swings around the margins of the gaping hole.
mircea_popescu: take something as simple as swatting : nothing in the old world is designed or capable to handle distributed coordinated effort.
cazalla: swatting a bitcoin conference
chetty: hmm wonder if you could swat an IRS office ..
cazalla: now that'd be lulzy
chetty: dragon should be occupied eating its own tail
mthreat: ya but swatting is presumably illegal. tipping is not, so thousands of people could conceivably do it without breaking any law
mircea_popescu: mthreat it only became illegal after they caught on.
chetty: plenty of stuff they havent gotten around to making illegal - yet
mircea_popescu: but before they caught on... it wasn't. so what is this, bayesian spam filtering ?

ThickAsThieves: what about video game currencies?

diana_coman: mircea_popescu yes, it counts urls, but that's not the top by wordlength, the title was misleading I guess; updated now
diana_coman: it's a bit of a hack so not terribly precise - I count non-words and then add 1 - I've used basic string processing rather than all the text mining shit
mircea_popescu: ah words per line. okay. also meant letters per word i guess
diana_coman: uhm, think that would be of interest?

diana_coman: if you throw a wall of text once, that's it
mircea_popescu: lol i guess so yeah
diana_coman: yeah, that's why I did not put the top 10 initially
diana_coman: it's mainly spammers at the top based on pure length of line
mircea_popescu: can it be "out of the top 100 by lines" ?

mircea_popescu: Today, the Internet brings every imaginable form of pornography to every home. The Internet is too valuable for too many things to just ban, and we can't even regulate spam that nobody wants, much less a product such as porn for which enormous demand exists."

mircea_popescu: suppose this manger now goes to work for me, and i'm "whatever, fuck them all in chains for all i care."
mircea_popescu: you're telling me he's not going to do it, becase "it's not done" or something ?
jurov: so he bribes the pilot instead?
mircea_popescu: the pilot doesn't have to know.
asciilifeform: jurov: what's there to see << passenger plane deliberately flown over SAM fire zone. shot. 'oh noez eeevil rebels!'
jurov: how does the pilot not know?
jurov: where he's flying over?
mircea_popescu: "mr jurov, we have a very important mission for you. it's to fly here : X"
mircea_popescu: (we're giving the people over at X your radio id, and they'll shoot you down. omitting to mention this part.)
jurov: that's the stupid part and risky as hell. if the pilot had half a clue, he'd leak something
chetty: and while everyone is watching this Israel is sending troops into Gaza
jurov: if that was military plane, okay, happens all the time
jurov: but relying whole plot on on civilian pilot???
mircea_popescu: jurov people take unreasonable risks as part of their employment ALL THE TIME
mircea_popescu: especially if the employers represent them as "standard"
asciilifeform: for one thing, we have no idea who piloted. another - pilots can also have problems.
mircea_popescu: this is why there has to be a fucking board of employment in th first place, otherwise people would happily STILL be sucking down phosphorus
mircea_popescu: and licking radon paint.

asciilifeform: interestingly, british gov. still forbids any serious exploration of the lusitania wreck.
mircea_popescu: jurov they had about the same clue.

dignork: asciilifeform: is hashing random input is inherently a bad idea?
asciilifeform: dignork: consider what a hash (any algo) actually does.
dignork: assume the following scenario, I'm generating random data by throwing dices, but I expect some bias: dices are non-ideal
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: << flight plan shenanigans
BingoBoingo: dignork: You don't machine and balance your dice at each corner?
asciilifeform: dignork: the correct answer is von neumann's 'fair coin' algorithm.
asciilifeform: gives unbiased output at the potential cost of never terminating (in that case you know for a fact that your entropy source is defective)
dignork: asciilifeform: so compensating bias by hashing a bit more of the dice raw data is a bad idea I guess
asciilifeform: dignork: hash is a good way to close your own eyes on problems with the rng
BingoBoingo: dignork: Turn the six sides into two outcomes 0 and 1, but first make sure the dice balance at the eight corners
asciilifeform: consider sha2(0, sha2(0, sha2(0, ... )))
dignork: BingoBoingo: I'm assuming usage of cheap off-the-shelf dice
asciilifeform: the sequence will pass 'diehard' and whatever tests of 'entropic' you like
asciilifeform: without being the least bit useful cryptographically
asciilifeform: just as, e.g. the digits of 'pi' will.
dignork: asciilifeform: I get it, but if the data is really random with "small" bias, how hashing makes it worse?
BingoBoingo: dignork: The way hashes break is "collisions"
BingoBoingo: You don't get to pick what weaker value might collide without your tronger input
asciilifeform: dignork: two separate issues. one - by papering over the problem. two - hashing introduces a correlation between bits, that may be useful to enemy who devoted serious effort to studying the hash in question.
dignork gone away, a bit smarter
asciilifeform: note that that last part is (afaik) discussed - nowhere, by no one.
asciilifeform: don't look for it in the textbooks
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Roughly spring 2005 that was in a discrete mathematics class I took. Don't remember if in the since resold textbook or not.
dignork: i thought about it, kind of partial reversal in case hash input size is smaller than hash output
BingoBoingo was roughly beginning the process of rotting his brain with booze at this point
BingoBoingo: The professor/underDean teaching also had a ~10 year CV black hole...
asciilifeform: rng designers very often succumb to the temptation to 'inflate' their output using a hash
asciilifeform: which is precisely this scenario - input is considerably smaller than out
asciilifeform: even assuming equal sized input and output - consider the set of all possible outputs of, e.g. sha2.
asciilifeform: for a given width of input
BingoBoingo: Professor in question was roughly a reverse Mircea, man dominated by wife
asciilifeform: it is quite possible (for want of a proof, i cannot declare definitively) that certain bitstrings can -never- get spat out
asciilifeform: thus, the set of possible outputs has a 'hole'
asciilifeform: likewise, given that (by design!) a 'cryptographic' hash will be computed in such a way that every bit of the input affects every bit out the output,
asciilifeform: the enemy now knows something about bit N by knowing bit N-k.
asciilifeform: exactly what he knows - i can't say
asciilifeform: but there is a nonzero amount of information conveyed.
asciilifeform: simply by the fact of the hash being in use
assbot: Last 7 lines bashed and pending review. ( )
asciilifeform: don't accept the above as 'gospel', study the design of a popular traditional hash and see exactly what i'm getting at
asciilifeform: as to how an enemy might proceed to put this hypothesis to actual use, see example of 'satcoin'.
asciilifeform: !s satcoin
asciilifeform: (frame the hash operation as a logical 'sat' system, work backwards to exclude regions of possible input state space based on known output bits)
BingoBoingo: So considering the partial UCL tear "No" on either of these bets is very probably free money up to the house edge collision

decimation: asciilifeform: to quote Knuth on the subject: "There is a fairly obvious objection to this technique [using arithmetic operations to acquire random numbers]: How can a sequence generated in such a way be random, since each number is completely determined by its predecessor? The answer is that the sequence isn't random, but it appears to be. In typical applications the actual relationship between one number and its successor has no
decimation: physical significance; hence the nonrandom character is not really undesirable"
BingoBoingo: For anyone contemplating higher than kitchen oven temperatures, but less than barrel fire temperatures:
decimation: laster: "Sequences generated in a deterministic way such as this are often called pseudoranom or quasirandom sequences in the highbrow technical literature, but in most places of this book we shall simply call them random sequences, with the understanding that they only appear to be random. Being "apparently random" is perhaps all that can be said about any random sequence anyway."

asciilifeform: decimation: the suitability of a number sequence for use as 'cryptographic entropy' is not a mathematical property of the sequence. it is a property of the aggregate of the sequence and the world in which it lives - i.e. whether the sequence is, or can easily become, known to the enemy.
