asciilifeform: if you (org.) want to keep secrets, the menu is roughly: a) employ incorruptible fanatics b) keep all henchmen incommunicado, in 'шарашка' prisons c) there is no 'c.' tertium non datur.
asciilifeform: notably absent from menu is 'retain army of thugs who know that spheres are interestingly secret'

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: how do you suppose most people would react to 'taking it slowly' for that one? << what are weddng rings if not a system for slow-cooking tattoos ?
asciilifeform: a bitcent a day << more than i'm willing to spend on lotto
mircea_popescu: turns out this process is a lot more fundamental to bitcoin than originally thought. your exact argument can be brought by person at the brink of the wot, "i'll get in the wot if you guarantee me good deals" he may say.
asciilifeform: being in wot doesn't void yer starfish warranty.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i just took some arbitrary numbers. you can make it 10 bitcents a day, in which case it costs 0.1
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well now that's obviously all subjective neh ?

mircea_popescu: the mortgages made them wealthier.

mircea_popescu: ha that's funny.
ben_vulpes: back to this "what is the value of a bitcoin" thing again
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: closer to 'what is the value of a gram of soil'
asciilifeform: if you have a gram - you have dusty fingers
asciilifeform: a few teratons - you have a potentially-habitable planetoid

mircea_popescu: this is how the glorious lie was born in the first place.
asciilifeform: yes but who engineers the mechanics of what is to be hidden, inside what.
mircea_popescu: see, all romans know how the law works.
mircea_popescu: none of the germans do
mircea_popescu: they can even send ovid to live in the pontus, what'll that do. start a rome there, with the savages ?
asciilifeform: this presumes that either - no roman will turn coat, and explain to a german - or - no german born can understand were it told to him
mircea_popescu: if the differential is large enough
asciilifeform: much the same way we keep arithmetic secret from dogs
mircea_popescu: no german can understand it. period.
mircea_popescu: pretty much, yes.
asciilifeform: but we don't normally talk of keeping arithmetic secret from dogs
mircea_popescu: keep the germans interested in who dumped who and what's the most recent popsong/sex tape
mircea_popescu: and there you go.
asciilifeform: the name of the exercise 'keeping secret' presumes an opponent capable of knowing
mircea_popescu: well of course. SEE what a well kept secret it is ?
mircea_popescu: the germans are human just as much as the romans.
mircea_popescu: their incapcity is circumstantial and culturally constructed.
mircea_popescu: it should qualify.

mircea_popescu: suppose i gave you an applesized cow that ran around the desk.
mircea_popescu: wouldn't you cater to the ubercute desk cow ?

BingoBoingo feels he has to disclose now to the Feds watching that yes I am drunk.
BingoBoingo: Which is why tonight I've priced air land and sea prices for travel to hardware BA
RagnarDanneskjol: think you need a passpuerto first
BingoBoingo: Once I clear up the neighboring county mounty issues I'll deal with that.
RagnarDanneskjol: I'm at your service to help you locate a job fit for a renegade. its what I do
BingoBoingo: Have a court date for that Thursday. Thing's been going on for over a year now. Allegedly I did a thing that was totally not a crime even if I did it because it was speech that supposed no transfer of value.
BingoBoingo: RagnarDanneskjol: What sort of work do you hook people up with.
RagnarDanneskjol: any. i have been a corporate recruiter for 15 years
RagnarDanneskjol: primarily life sci, aerospace, pharma, semiconductor and enterprise software, finance
BingoBoingo: Know any corporations that need Librarians? Preferably with health benefits because I haven't seen a psychiatrist since I got my Library science degree 25 months ago?
RagnarDanneskjol: other stuff to. recruitment is the same anywhere you go. sorting through the garbage is all i do
RagnarDanneskjol: you serious?
BingoBoingo: Pretty sure previous discussion on this subject are in the logs
RagnarDanneskjol: hmm. let me look into it. not off the top of head, will chek lawgs and ask around for you
BingoBoingo is currently medicated with copious ETOH several times a week. It isn't no lamotrigine (which was beautiful in its effectiveness without cognitive effects, and I'm pretty sure my dick was bigger while I was on it)
BingoBoingo: Mostly it helps my avoid the manias though
BingoBoingo: When I'm depressed I'm miserable but safe.
RagnarDanneskjol: you have a dog?
BingoBoingo: My brother does, with his wife. It's adorable.
RagnarDanneskjol: nothing better for mental health imo
BingoBoingo: I was a TA at a pharmacy school for 2 years. Pretty sure anticonvulsants are they way to go, but they vary so much from person to person.
BingoBoingo: I like domestic dogs though and stray cats. I also dislike domestic cats and stray dogs.
assbot: Picasa Web Albums - shannon morrisey - Prince and Tank

RagnarDanneskjol: yep, me too. they are little monsters. mean too
BingoBoingo: My brother has a corgi mix named Frank. Frank is adorable. Frank would not make a good guard dog. Frank is great at giving elderly relatives hope though.
RagnarDanneskjol: mhmm. pups add years to lifespans
BingoBoingo: Well, my estimation on the elderly is more empiricle though. It's been a while since grampa tried to drink a bottle of pesticide.
BingoBoingo: It's dark but true. The pesticide he tried was basically a concentrated nicotine and being old enough to have smoke a lot... he went to the hospital nauseous after trying to crash his truck.
BingoBoingo: He's well into his 90's though.
RagnarDanneskjol: wow. that's punk rock

BingoBoingo: The clinically crazy being part of the "smart" or the "elite", I'm also fortunate to have a very seasonal sort of bipolar in that summers I get a mania that is always unfamiliar and winters I get a very familiar depression.

mircea_popescu: Two former Los Angeles Police Department officers, along with 13 others, have plead guilty to running a robbery ring, which used fake no-knock raids as a ruse to catch victims off guard. The defendants would then steal cash and drugs to sell on the street. This tactic led Radley Balko, editor of Reason Magazine, to complain "So not only can you not be sure the people banging down your door at night are the police, not
mircea_popescu: only can you not be sure they’re the police even if they say they’re the police, you can’t even be sure it’s safe to let them in even if they are the police."
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo you know, people who live in decent places tend to assume the us is similarly a decent place, and readily forget the sort of rogue shithole it actually is.
mircea_popescu: Tracy Ingle was shot in his house five times during a no-knock raid in North Little Rock, Arkansas. After the police entered the house Tracy thought armed robbers had entered the house and intended to scare them away with a non-working gun. The police expected to find drugs, but none were found. He was brought to the intensive care, but police pulled him out of intensive care for questioning, after which they arrested
mircea_popescu: him and charged him with assault on the officers who shot him.
BingoBoingo: Indeed
asciilifeform: most people in usa will read this and ask 'but was he an untermensch ?' and go back to sleep
mircea_popescu: well, in what sense ?
mircea_popescu: yes, he wasn't a police officer.
asciilifeform: in the sense that wasn't 'office plankton'
chetty: <asciilifeform> most people in usa will read this and ask 'but was he an untermensch ?' and go back to sleep// who said they were awake to go back to sleep

mircea_popescu: xmj: RagnarDanneskjol: "It's not what you know, it's whom you know" - said no smart person ever. << i've said it.
mircea_popescu: outside of "whom you know", "what you know" simply reduces to "what you think you know" and nobody got time for that.
asciilifeform: generally, plankton response is 'this fellow couldn't have been a good upstanding plankton'
mircea_popescu: as far as the police state is concerned, nobody else is good anything. just listen to one of the fuckwits go.
asciilifeform: police state is never wholly the polizei themselves, but also all such that 'it would never do, polite society!' for them to drag out in the night

asciilifeform: so he described the hilarious talmudic gymnastics he and his colleagues insist on to justify various things.

mircea_popescu: At around 5 am, on the morning of July 18, 1981, six weeks after getting out of prison, Jack Abbott and two women, Veronique de St. Andre and Susan Roxas, went to a small cafe called the Binibon, located at 79 Second Ave in Manhattan. Richard Adan, a 22-year-old aspiring actor and playwright, was there working as a waiter in his father-in-law's restaurant. Abbott got up from his table and asked Richard Adan to direct h
mircea_popescu: im to the toilet. Adan explained that the toilet could be reached only through the kitchen, and because the restaurant did not have accident insurance for customers, only employees could use the bathroom. Abbott argued with him. They took their dispute outside, where Abbott stabbed Adan to death.
mircea_popescu: dude, srsly ? mahattan coffee house with no urinal ? in 1981 ? what the fuck is wrong with this somalia.
BingoBoingo: Manhattan is the urinal
TheNewDeal: BingoBoingo they somehow take over a website, use it to deploy malware, and that defeats tor how?
mircea_popescu: see, this is why taking two girls to a cafe isn't such a big deal.
mircea_popescu: taking two girls eager to swallow if you need to take a leak however..
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal you familiar with the concept of "parallel construction" ?
TheNewDeal: I'm just saying, tor wasn't supposed to prevent any of those things from happening (in my limited knowledge)
mircea_popescu: ;;google "parallel construction"
gribble: Parallel construction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: <>; Parallel Form - Guide to Grammar and Writing: <>; How to Use Parallel Construction Correctly - Quick and Dirty Tips: <>
TheNewDeal: it's as if the website owner himself started hosting malware on his site, then people downloaded
mircea_popescu: that's why the fbi untruthfully claims to have happened.
mircea_popescu: you know it's untruthfully because it's a usg agent.
TheNewDeal: I'm confused here. You don't think they were smart enough to deploy malware that would give away information?
mircea_popescu: not the contention.
mircea_popescu: they used their numerous tor holes and exploits, then claimed to have done what what you seem to believe.
BingoBoingo: It's no secret that the biggest open tor flaw is that anyone with enough tor nodes is going to often going to get some users traffic for all three steps
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal lemme put this in more readily digestible terms for you.
mircea_popescu: you and a dozen friends all marry super-knockout trophy wives, living in a gated community called "the garden of eden", doing all sorts of fun shit.
mircea_popescu: one day a bunch of dudes come in, start raping the women and make the lot of you slurp the cum right out of their battered snatches.
TheNewDeal: this is getting incredibly off-topic, but feel free to continue
mircea_popescu: this last for a week or so.
mircea_popescu: what really happened is that a) they had the keys all along and b) had been tailing you all over town, listening in on your phone conversation, instant messaging and late night cuddle sessions
mircea_popescu: then they leave the door open on their way out.
mircea_popescu: at trial, it is established beyond reasonable doubt that your negligence in locking the door allowed "some bad people" to come and rape the lot of you, a week after it actually hapepned
mircea_popescu: and the police will more than happily try and find those bad people. sometime.
mircea_popescu: the actual events (police broke in and rape your fambly) are replaced by the parallel construction (someone came in and did it) on the turning point of "the door being left open".
mircea_popescu: an event that factually happened, but at the END of the police-led abuse, not at the beginning of the "unknown" led abuse posited in court paperwork.
asciilifeform: there is also the tired, old, mundane 'there is a kilo of cocaine in your toilet tank' theorem.
TheNewDeal: I think the first explanation is much more digestible
mircea_popescu: sure but that's too much effort.
asciilifeform: i.e. - on whose word are we to believe that mr. pedo is a pedo ?
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal don't confuse digestion for simply passing things through the system untouched.
asciilifeform: that the packets left his machine as described, or, if they did, that his head had anything to do with it
asciilifeform: or that the contents of his confiscated disk were placed there by his hands
asciilifeform: or, for that matter, exist even in the evidence room, and not merely loaded for the occasion from the prosecutor's private collection.

asciilifeform: the funny part is - consider, if it were generally known that, e.g, fbi, owned a cocaine teleporter (purpose-built) that specifically sends to toilet tanks - the arrestee could bring this possibility up as a defense
asciilifeform: and might stand a chance
