decimation: deciding what not to spend mental cycles on is a valuable skill
mircea_popescu: "The Pioneer has before declared that our only safety depends upon the total extirmination of the Indians. Having wronged them for centuries, we had better, in order to protect our civilization, follow it up by one more wrong and wipe these untamed and untamable creatures from the face of the earth."
mircea_popescu: l f baum (wizard of oz), cca 1890.
decimation: we did worse - we made them depend on the bezzle for welfare - now most of them exist in a drunken half-stupor

mircea_popescu: For Mencken, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was the finest work of American literature. Much of that book relates how gullible and ignorant country "boobs" (as Mencken referred to them) are swindled by confidence men like the (deliberately) pathetic "Duke" and "Dauphin" roustabouts with whom Huck and Jim travel down the Mississippi River. These scam-artists swindle by posing as enlightened speakers on temperance (to ob
mircea_popescu: tain the funds to get roaring drunk), as pious "saved" men seeking funds for far off evangelistic missions (to pirates on the high seas, no less), and as learned doctors of phrenology (who can barely spell). Mencken read the novel as a story of America's hilarious dark side, a place where democracy, as defined by Mencken, is "the worship of jackals by jackasses".
mircea_popescu: such change wow progress.
mircea_popescu: "I admit freely enough that, by careful breeding, supervision of environment and education, extending over many generations, it might be possible to make an appreciable improvement in the stock of the American negro, for example, but I must maintain that this enterprise would be a ridiculous waste of energy, for there is a high-caste white stock ready at hand, and it is inconceivable that the negro stock, however caref
mircea_popescu: ully it might be nurtured, could ever even remotely approach it. The educated negro of today is a failure, not because he meets insuperable difficulties in life, but because he is a negro. He is, in brief, a low-caste man, to the manner born, and he will remain inert and inefficient until fifty generations of him have lived in civilization. And even then, the superior white race will be fifty generations ahead of him."
mircea_popescu: check out mencken being spectacularly wrong.
mircea_popescu: The larger the mob, the harder the test. In small areas, before small electorates, a first-rate man occasionally fights his way through, carrying even the mob with him by force of his personality. But when the field is nationwide, and the fight must be waged chiefly at second and third hand, and the force of personality cannot so readily make itself felt, then all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most
mircea_popescu: devious and mediocre—the man who can most easily adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum.
mircea_popescu: The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
mircea_popescu: and then right.

mircea_popescu: RagnarDanneskjol that's a fine example of why one doesn't really want to offr live betting.

mircea_popescu: but you can't talk sense into these overgrown children with their delusions of independence.
fluffypony: where's Kyle when you need someone for an abject lesson
mircea_popescu: Just don't place arbs which gives you less than 5% of your "under" stake. If you place 100 EUR on under at Europeans , it means that you must place only arbs which give you more than 5 EUR. This way, you need only 20 arbs to recover the losses from " 1 goal" for the 30 (might even less) sec you need after you first bet is accepted probably is less than 1/20. This rule of 5% profit from you under stake is reasonable. So
mircea_popescu: me statistics of collected data from such bets could reveal more, but this 1/20 goal scoring assumption seems to be close to reality. Base on my own stats the probability of the goal is 1,8% , which means that 1,8 goals are scored in 100 bets. My net profit is smth like 65% of my total profit, the rest (35%) is the loss i have suffered from goals being scored in pending time. You must never place bets less than 5 EUR
mircea_popescu: (5% of your under bet, which we are assuming it is 100 EUR) unless it is HT where there is no danger. If you place bets for 2 EUR profit, you need now 50 arbs to recover the losses and i doubt that you will make any money.
mircea_popescu: based on his own fucking data o.O

mircea_popescu redirects ben_vulpes to the hermetic
assbot: Let’s pretend… pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.
ben_vulpes: yeah, i get it i read it, but whence the source? there was the usms sale which is theoretically trickling into the market, and the ether sale which may or may not be trickling into the market. the former, clearly usg. the latter as well?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: usg << one possible explanatory hypothesis for why they bought straight from the vendor instead of mircea_popescu's short
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes pretty much every single major sucking of chumps change you will see from about q1 onwards will be and has been a psyops riding on top of a usg-backed institutional lending for shorts
mircea_popescu: here's the scheme : whatever usg affiliate, be it goldman sachs or herpy q derp that holds any sum of btc will lend it to the usg btc policy bureau in exchange for fiat guarantees.
mircea_popescu: any usg affiliate or more likely, herpy q derp that looks like he may acquire any btc sum through any means will receive all the soft backing possible, from business insder news articles to an invitation to the fucking white house. anything whatsoever as long as it loks natural rather than spammy
mircea_popescu: all these loan contracts are promised to unwind in fiat eventually, and will be in fact profitable for all parties if and only if bitcoin actually fails.
mircea_popescu: they are no major concern for the usg in either case, because man who hangs for a goat might as well hang for a goat and a chick
mircea_popescu: no matter how cool the chick was.
mircea_popescu: and so here we are. part ii of the game is, how much do you ~actually~ like this thing, once money actually is on the table.
mircea_popescu: unremarkably, the worthless shitheads that joined late have nothing to contribute.
mircea_popescu: but suddenly, the large early holdings that all the shitheads-with-a-megaphone were decrying as dangerous to bitcoin
mircea_popescu: turn into a major point of support for bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: which is how things work in moronia, down is up, etc.
asciilifeform: the large early holdings << these moved ?
asciilifeform: so isn't it rather like saying 'volcano was a major point of support for pompei until day x'
mircea_popescu: if the volcano never erupts, the fertile land on its slopes is actually enough to make the village own the other villages and build an empire.
asciilifeform wonders if the dump wasn't the work of an impatient man, but of a thinking one - trying to induce 'stress fracture' (what's the correct term?) via stampede effects
mircea_popescu: anyway, this whole charade'd have worked a damned sight better if the various y-combinator bezzlers, the foundation hearn, gmaxwell and co would have actually had what they thought they had and everyone thought they should have, ie, actual respectability and bitcoin cred.
mircea_popescu: thankfully, uncommon sense prevailed. so far at least.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what i think on that topic is perhaps apparent from what i do, namely, that i'm even talking about all this.
mircea_popescu: but yes, for momentum shorts soft landing is the worst fucking news imaginable. so far, we're beating the shit out of a soft flubbery substance the size of a continent.
asciilifeform infers that, should a peculiar effect be seen and mircea_popescu is silent, then it must be truly interesting
mircea_popescu: or imaginary (ie, powerless)
mircea_popescu: it's kinda funny how this works in qm terms. basically, an oracle of the wave function, but just on the real part. is this actually useful ?

nubbins`: there was one of these cases here in nl
nubbins`: the accused was "educated" on the ways of being a freeloader-on-the-land by a mentally ill woman who grew up 4 houses away from me
nubbins`: prior to becoming a life advisor, she'd done stints impersonating a doctor, among other things
asciilifeform: these folks - a classic illustration of how it is not enough to 'say no'

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform kinda why the credit bubble is required for usg : because all extraction only works if it costs more than it extracts
mircea_popescu: this being the fundamental of rooslvelt's new deal.
asciilifeform: costs more? backwards?
mircea_popescu: every dollar the usg extracts from anything costs it more than a dollar as a precondition of its continued existence.
asciilifeform: and still not seeing it. a few mil. people in usa evicted, how many shot at the sheriff? ten?
mircea_popescu: they can only get evicted provided their eviction costs more than it's worth.
chetty: got to keep pumping that debt
asciilifeform: considering that this is rather opposite of the thermodynamics we learned in kindergarten, perhaps deserves explanation ?
mircea_popescu: yeah, the whole story works fine for as long as the expansion of debt remains unrestricted.
asciilifeform: e.g. oil well that needs more joules to pump than you get out - is abandoned
mircea_popescu: this creates "assets" for everyone involved, and so...
asciilifeform: why would opposite rule apply here
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ask roosevelt.
mircea_popescu: i didn't come up with it.
asciilifeform: roosevelt (or stalin, for that matter) just subscribed to a somewhat baroque school of biodiesel manufacture
mircea_popescu: nah, the cripple came up with it all on his own.
asciilifeform: that is, it doesn't matter that the well is -EV if expendable slaves are pumping by hand
asciilifeform: you're converting their fat to fuel
mircea_popescu: "how great would it be if we cut off everyone's legs, and hired someone to push them around"
mircea_popescu: stalin's thing was reality bound. roosevelt's thing was not.
asciilifeform: roosevelt started with considerably more fat
mircea_popescu: this is why the soviet union collapsed cleanly, whereas the libertard union will not.
mircea_popescu: that's not where it lies. stalin's externality was belly fat

nubbins`: this image came to me as a psd with, no joke, over 150 layers

nubbins`: as i can't fit 150 screens on the press, this is reduced to 4 layers
thestringpuller: well you could use 150 screens
thestringpuller: but that'd be insane
nubbins`: anyway, clearing through the backlog. 150-ish two-sided cards and another hundred shirts and i'm in the clear for digging into the bitcoin posters
nubbins`: thestringpuller it'd be cumbersome
nubbins`: there were only like 6 or 7 colors in there to begin with. it's just that for some reason she put each stroke in its own layer

thestringpuller: the "mythical" 150 screen press serves as a better motivator ;)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform let's model this with a game of chess. suppose there's ten of us in a room. nine are amateurs, i am a rated pro.
mircea_popescu: first game starts. i tell my opponent "listen, if you let me play with an extra queen, i
mircea_popescu: ll let you play with two extra queens on the rematch"
mircea_popescu: now this is actually +ev for the opponent : he probably can't beat a pro on even figures, so giving an extra gueen is not much to give.
nubbins`: in the philippines, they do a lot of peg-and-hole printing, you could theoretically do 150-color designs no sweat
mircea_popescu: however, no pro in the world can beat someone with three queens on the table. and so he consents.
mircea_popescu: i won a game.
nubbins`: set up like 200-500 shirts at a time on these huge long tables, each shirt has 2 wooden dowels sticking out of the board above it
mircea_popescu: the problem is, it cost me more to win than it's worth. but i won it.
nubbins`: printer takes a squeegee and screen w/ 2 holes on top, slips screen onto first set of dowels, prints, steps to the right, repeat
mircea_popescu: which you know, in some approaches to politics, such as would for instance be favoured by temporary figureheads elected by a democracy, and supported by an unmovable bureaucracy, is the whole of my job.

BingoBoingo: Hello dpb_reddit
dpb_reddit: Hi! CryptyLabs LLC will be creating a suite of services to make the use and accessibility of Bitcoins easier for everyone. The first product being created in our suite is trading software, commonly known as bots. We plan to launch in 5 weeks under they CryptyBots brand. We are looking for person(s) who can fill one or both of the following position(s): 1. Software/bot trading developer 2. Backtest Developer Best candidat
BingoBoingo: dpb_reddit: Why are you offering us best Candida? I don't want to itch!
BingoBoingo: dpb_reddit: What is your role in this CryptoLabs business?
dpb_reddit: I am one of the 2 co-founders, currently a 5 man operation - we are launching in 5 weeks
BingoBoingo: That was some seriously unfortuante text clipping on your message though because it seems you are wishing us all nasty fungal itches...
dpb_reddit: So, I set up the business, finances, marketing, put the team together, etc.
BingoBoingo: What kind of history do you have?
BingoBoingo: And why start with trading software if your target audience is the everyman?
Blazedout419: thoughts?
dpb_reddit: I have worked at a financial investment group, and have started startups freelanding around - currently have a lot of free time and this is one of my serious projects.
kakobrekla: so, nothing with bitcoin?
dpb_reddit: The reason we are starting with the trading software is because if someone is new to bitcoins, we are providing the easiest, and best profiting bots out so far - our product is done, but we are looking for more developers and backtest feature
dpb_reddit: Yes, I know how to program, I am also currently creating my own coin as a project. I am involved in cryptos and trade on exchanges.
kakobrekla: i think _you_ are new to bitcoin.
dpb_reddit: I have also written my own bot, but the bots we are selling are created much more professionally than I can make
dpb_reddit: I am not new to bitcoins
dpb_reddit: If anyone is interestd, send an email to
kakobrekla: so, having some fx experience, i can tell you there just one kind of bots for sale on this planet. the ones that dont work.
dpb_reddit: I will tell you our bots work, and we have about 300 happy customers already.
dpb_reddit: Anyways, I am not here to explain myself, or prove anything, simply trying to hire for a good startup company.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the chess example, or its life version with debt, etc. is really a play on 'hilbert's hotel'
BingoBoingo: dpb_reddit: Still, why not for example make a fork of Armory that isn't spyware or something, what is this with trading bots
asciilifeform: if you could actually move judgement day off by a day without limit, it'd work
kakobrekla: BingoBoingo thats not selling dreams.
dpb_reddit: What do you mean, BingoBingo?
assbot: This is the Bitcoin Empire's Yasa: these are its Lords:
BingoBoingo: dpb_reddit: Like sell software that makes using and storing bitcoin a better experience
dpb_reddit: Well there are wallets, pretty easy to store bitcoins. Our bots will be very easy to use, interface is super clean.
BingoBoingo: dpb_reddit: But I mean why introduce risky trading bots as a first product to new users?
kakobrekla: its 100& guaranteed profit prolly.
dpb_reddit: They are not super risky. They profit very consistently. Of course I cannot guarantee 100% of the time, but it generally does profit well and gets your money back. Backtests can show this. Kakobrekla, please do not be disrespectful, I am being honest here.
kakobrekla: you are honestly not having a clue.
dpb_reddit: I am not going to argue with you. I know what I am doing.

mircea_popescu: dude. jesus. omfg.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it's a normal unix box
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: but apple's first version of os didn't support user task switching
mircea_popescu: then why does everything stop the moment it goes to background ?
decimation: the capability to shrink dies has far outstripped the capability to design logic to exploit the new possibility space
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: as i recall, it uses an evil semi-cooperative task scheduler for user apps (vs system daemons) where 'non-essential' threads are suspended
asciilifeform: this, according to the dev manual, is to save battery charge.
kakobrekla: this thing was introduced in the later models only ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so basically... it doesn't have multi-tasking.
asciilifeform: running more than one user app simultaneously was introduced in ver. 4 i think.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it does, but app has to explicitly ask for it
decimation: I'm sure the hand of steve was in this
BingoBoingo: kakobrekla> this thing was introduced in the later models only ? << This thing was introduced when they "introduced" "multi-tasking"
mircea_popescu: sooo basicalllllllyyyyy....

asciilifeform: what's the app in question
mircea_popescu: various random games. i got a tablet to check out what's going on in that space.
asciilifeform: if it ought to do something useful in background and doesn't, it is the author's fault, yes
mircea_popescu: turns out... everything downloads in a patch-needed state
mircea_popescu: and everything takes > 10 minutes to patch
mircea_popescu: and everything wants to be front-up while doing this
mircea_popescu: and i think i am going to buy a hammer.
BingoBoingo: I'd be interested in partnering with someone to startup S.MASH
asciilifeform owns one of virtually every basic type of portable tablet/reader gizmo, they each have some use

mircea_popescu: and this leaving aside the problem that every shithead from vietnam to shangshitland is making the same dumbass 3 or 4 games, with the most ridiculous mechanics,
decimation: plus 'ipad gcc' (xcode) only runs on a mac, and you have to tell apple why you want it (not that it would help without the app source)
mircea_popescu: but that notwithstanding, it's apparently impossible to get any of these aspiring "software houses" to even pick up the phone.
asciilifeform: 'nexus 10', for example, is just right for reading vintage djvu scans of 'наука и жизнь'.

BingoBoingo: I imagine most of them can't afford phones
decimation: ascii do you have one of those huge sony e-ink readers?
asciilifeform: decimation: amazon's 'kindle dx'
asciilifeform: used exclusively for russian war3z
decimation: yeah, sony was going to be paper sized
mircea_popescu: i literally was confronted with obviously the same one (stupid) thing, once with a scantily clad "mobster" girl, then later with a scantily clad "medieval fantasy" girl.
decimation: or bigger actually, I think they bailed on that business
BingoBoingo: The Sony readers were basically warez text only, it was great
asciilifeform: sony did the original 'prs' box (sold mine for less than cost of shipping years ago)
asciilifeform: but has fallen down since
asciilifeform: dx, if i recall, is sadly out of production
assbot: Sony's 13-inch 'Digital Paper' is just like paper, except it costs $1,100
asciilifeform hates epaper touch screens as a concept
decimation: my bid for such a device is $100
nubbins`: <+decimation> plus 'ipad gcc' (xcode) only runs on a mac, and you have to tell apple why you want it << you have to tell apple why you want xcode?
asciilifeform: can't finger-scroll on it, so only thing that happens is dirt
decimation: nubbins`: at least in the past you had to get a developer account
nubbins` shakes head
nubbins`: you need a developer account to load apps onto your idevice, sure
asciilifeform: decimation: afaik you still do if you want to actually run your code on (uncracked) apple portable gizmos

dignork: RagnarDanneskjol: it's on preorder :(
RagnarDanneskjol: i made one w/ my bare hands
decimation: yeah, those are neat, except the most interesting part is the fact that you can capture a decent band
decimation: what are you going to do with the band, once you have it?
BingoBoingo: RagnarDanneskjol: You really aren't playing with RF until you are measuring power in at least tens of watts
RagnarDanneskjol: I work on radar/IR jamming stuff w/ fpgas, electronic warfare
RagnarDanneskjol: I know what I'm doing, have lots of burns to prove it
BingoBoingo: Ah, I'm more familiar with DX'ing as a sport
BingoBoingo: How far can you get on X power budget in Y Band?
decimation: I guess it goes down to 10 mhz so you could do HF
decimation: at least the upper end
decimation: it barely puts out 1 watt
BingoBoingo: That's what AMPs are for

mircea_popescu: the us war dept just enlisted 2-500k eager valley sluts and packed them off.
mircea_popescu: "come back in two years"
decimation: with or without guns?
mircea_popescu: no guns, and not so much clothing either.

dreamstring: While I have a voice, I'd like to put out for any developers interested in a possible position in a start up based around creating a mobile mining oriented cryptocurrency. The company is the Dreamstring platform, aiming to create a crypto that distributes supply and time using the fibonacci, as well as creating an equal distribution to each cellular phone user to download the mobile application.
dreamstring: The app aims to distribute the currency to each person to download the free app equally, as well as offer different teirs/levels of accounts for shopping, buying/selling, and trading goods and services.
BingoBoingo: Lower left corner
dreamstring: im getting trolled arent i.
BingoBoingo: dreamstring: nah, the red stuff is whale shit, not menstral painting
dreamstring: damn man im all about that shark week but idk what this is getting at
BingoBoingo: dreamstring: Well, what makes "mobile mining" special and desirable?
dreamstring: Nothing besides the fact that by using a PoW/PoS hybrid you can group people into different teir groups based on their cell phones to make sure everyone is getting the same distribution of the currency.
dreamstring: in theory the hashrate doesnt mean anything besides securing from a 51% and determining who contributed what amount of work
BingoBoingo: And what does that offer anyone who has money that could give such a currency value?
dreamstring: but that still ads to the rich get richer kinda aspect bitcoin is fighting against
dreamstring: a deflationary currency
dreamstring: and a global decentralized trading platform on every phone through a centralized security outlet
dreamstring: it creates a whole new market really
dreamstring: introduce peolpe in india/kenya/africa that use MPESA rn
BingoBoingo: <dreamstring> but that still ads to the rich get richer kinda aspect bitcoin is fighting against << Who said this is a part of Bitcoin, Bitcoin fights the stupid getting richer...

dreamstring: in the sense that those with money can afford more asics can afford to make more
dreamstring: expotential profit
dreamstring: this allows everyone to start off on an even note
dreamstring: and then based on how you use your money that you are distributed, well the smart use it well/open their own stores on the market, the poor just get paid for having a phone
