mircea_popescu: i dunno what this is ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Some spam asperzing site that wants to be BTC news is hosting "awards"
mircea_popescu: "What is Proof of Honor? The turbulence in our cryptosphere has made it difficult at times to spot out the real leaders – the true innovators. We have introduced the Proof of Honor as an award to acknowledge the achievement of those who have brought to this environment something new and exciting."

ben_vulpes is still benefiting from decades of others good decisions buried in emacs - this week, proper connection and cloaking behavior in the irc client
kakobrekla: btw BingoBoingo the thing is automated, and just like there is no searching the log for old ips, there is also no check if nick contains 'ddos' letters
ben_vulpes: does anyone have experience compiling bitcoin from source on free or open bsd?
BingoBoingo: kakobrekla: Ah, I wasn't sure they'd advanced to automating. Thought they'd still be mating with their hand.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: << in case you missed
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I saw, was overwhelmed. I'm still benefiting from great design decisions made in who knows the fuck what anymore.
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Dignork does
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: danielpbarron also does
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: There is evidence I've done it on sun OS, but no memory of having done so, so unproductive tree to bark up.
ben_vulpes: lol sun os that's pretty good
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: The useful versions are basically classical era BSD.
BingoBoingo: Before divergence set in
mircea_popescu: babbys_first_bit: i have a shitty laptop that I've devoted to my cold storage, disabled wifi etc <<< check out noob with solid plan.

ben_vulpes: v -> w -> x
ben_vulpes: really?
kakobrekla: ddos cuts after 30min
BingoBoingo: I spread it around at library school. The Linux people liked it. The system Z and Mac people who though Mac was *nix hated it
BingoBoingo: The windows folk just weren't people
mikaeldice: I reinstalled Windows as a dual boot after a couple years of solely Debian so I could play a game.. It felt dirty.
BingoBoingo: mikaeldice: I run a windows instance as a game console, no shame as long as you protect the rest of the internet from it
mircea_popescu: <kakobrekla> ddos cuts after 30min << yeah, cheapo least effort sorta thing
asciilifeform: cheapo least effort << think this way: there are not many chumpnets that can be sliced into N slices (one for each of us, 24/7) and still be of any use.
asciilifeform: so gotta take turns.
ben_vulpes: could one spam the spammorz? flood the channel with reasonable-ish nicks?
kakobrekla: could as well be unreasonable.
ben_vulpes shrugs
ben_vulpes: flood the channel with connections?
kakobrekla: as i displayed earlier
ben_vulpes is only sort of paying attention over here

ben_vulpes: whatsa deal with the notary?
mircea_popescu: soooo... who wants to make an actual scoopbot ?
punkman: ben_vulpes: it needs hosting
mircea_popescu: punkman yeah waht was that hack all about ?
mircea_popescu: what do you need, to host it ?
ben_vulpes: what was the story on the hack?
punkman: I got no idea, didn't find anything
mircea_popescu: ugh so then how did it happen ?
ben_vulpes: what was the result of the hack? flood from your IP?
punkman: again, no idea. Hetzner sent email about kako's digitalocean instance. supposedly some network scan/attack originating from it.
mircea_popescu: is that the only indication ?
ben_vulpes: but db intact, btc safe
ben_vulpes: gpg keyring unmolested
punkman: yep
ben_vulpes: were you doing full backups for comparison?
mircea_popescu: ah so forgetr it then, they're idiots.
punkman: mircea_popescu: well the b/w logs etc supported the theory
kakobrekla: it could be someone fucked up the incoming and outgoing traffic again. would not be the first time. not even the second. probably not even the third. in a month.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu lol shooting from the hip
mircea_popescu: punkman so what do you need to host it ? an aws ? or what ?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes he is literally correct incidentally. we have email where "isp expert" confused the incoming with the outgoing
BingoBoingo: ;;ticker

punkman: mircea_popescu: well someone could further inspect the supposedly "hacked" instance, can keep using that
mircea_popescu: i don't care what you use, but it's not online is the problem.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo: He prolly ate them. << lawl.
kakobrekla: this thing is a ba subdomain, its 'hot'. not for do. needs a different home.
mircea_popescu: ah. yeah makes sense. "least effort hosting" specialists.
kakobrekla: well its ok if you dont plan to offend the idiots. at least too much.
mircea_popescu: punkman do you have any providers you like ?
punkman: mircea_popescu: not really
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla im kinda against giving any money to "least effort" sorta providers, because it narrows the pie for the legitimate guys. if i want 10 items of which one is rare, i WILL NOT buy the 10 from any of the shops that don't carry the 10th. that way that guy gets some nice business and the idiots get a valuable signal.
mircea_popescu: punkman what do you need to run it, root on linux ?
mircea_popescu: if you can live with a cpanel account i can spin you one up rightnao.
punkman: don't need root, except for binding HTTP server to :80
mircea_popescu: lol. okay, what's the domain ?
mircea_popescu: or did it even have one ?
mircea_popescu: !up ShaneDCC

ben_vulpes: yes actually.
ben_vulpes: not gpg signed, but w/e.
kakobrekla: mircea_popescu it just has to do with the fact they are very over provisioned
kakobrekla: for some things this is ok

assbot: Patrol car set on fire, rocks thrown at City Hall in second night of protests | St. Louis ... ( )
BingoBoingo wonder why still civil unrest in Ferguson and not CLayton or Town and Country.
BingoBoingo: Even Maryland Heights.
BingoBoingo: No, civil unrest in Ferguson and Dellwood again.
mircea_popescu: what they're still going ?
BingoBoingo: Well, they paused for daylight.
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic: I was kind of wondering about it recently, it could make sense <<< i said i suspected so, now he's haunting me with it.
BingoBoingo: Less stuff to burn tonight, but still ongoing
ben_vulpes: any suggestions on openbsd hosting?
BingoBoingo: The "city" they were in as understood by a poor american is gone, but...
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: physical box, cheap rack
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: usg ships afghani opium directly into ru. <<< opium wars 2.0 ?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes generally, get a dedicated/colocated box, run w/e.
BingoBoingo: Virtualizing OpenBSD is still not very pleasant or economical compared to colo-rack with boxen
BingoBoingo: OpenBSD is slowly getting better at tolerating VMware and Qemu, but devs still primalirly target Iron
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: you capitalize like a german.
ben_vulpes: and maybe i can justify some steel and a rack for 2015.
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: I grew up in a town that is white, but Kraut rather than Anglo trash
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: literally, piles << quite. for a while in the 90s the way to get a cessna or local clone was to go to the pile.
mircea_popescu: if you could make it work it was yours.
BingoBoingo thought about moving to dedicated hardware, but probably leaching Dreamhost forever so DDoS is their problem
BingoBoingo reminds now that I have not flown ON an aeroplane much less flown an aeroplane
BingoBoingo reminds exploring the Darien as a land route to freedom...
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: have to understand, jet fighter is not really a complete machine. it is a tentacle of the larger industrial slave empire which produced and employed it. much like your finger cannot function for long or very usefully unless attached to the rest of you << so very aptly put.

mircea_popescu: why not .ba
ben_vulpes: so conventional!
mircea_popescu: anyway, im not spending a million dollars to buy into what's fundamentally a dead tech.
mircea_popescu: i'd rather buy 1mn dollars' worth of betamax gear.
ben_vulpes: ba's just so tightly bound to this particular irc instantiation
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: But the best videos are on Betamax
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo ikr ?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes i sersiouly see more future for irc than for the web.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I mean Betamax has more porn with white girls who want to do pron.
mircea_popescu: i dunno.
mircea_popescu: porn of the period is ridiculous fail.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: How is it fail. They do porn. You get off. They try not porn at all, you recover, and then they do porn again.
mircea_popescu: any clits on betamax ?
BingoBoingo: Sure, under the bush
mircea_popescu: my point.
mircea_popescu: i dunno how i could fuck an 80s woman without a three week prep course.
ben_vulpes: for her or you?
BingoBoingo had a girlfriend in High School who routinely wore shoulder pads
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes for her.
mircea_popescu: they've not yet invented "forgetness education"

ben_vulpes: <Vexual> here we go, it;s 20yearmoney to tell u sabout growth << some days i really can't tell if markov
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: If you want true markov revelations, you really need to give templeOS a spin
ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> (moreover my point was that growing shit is taking care of the small problem, most of your energetic needs aren't "what to eat") << so seaweed in giant nets?
mircea_popescu: what if no seaweeds ? what if "seaweeed tax" introduced ? etc.
ben_vulpes: holy shit how am i still 1k under
mircea_popescu: 1k under what.
ben_vulpes: log lines
mircea_popescu: im almost caught up myself.
ben_vulpes: what sort of scenario leads to no seaweeds? could one not grow them oneself? and who's to tax the tiny barge floating many many miles from nowhere?
ben_vulpes: well you don't have a job anymore that's unfair and i'm going to call the communists on you
mircea_popescu: by the way, the dark meadow is probably the best ipad game ever made. it's so good in fact it's definitely giving the platform a reason to exist.
mircea_popescu: this is the first time
BingoBoingo knows exactly why he exists, because 11kg bird and pre-Thanksgiving family fracture. I am going to up on 15lbs of weight in under an hour
BingoBoingo offers 15lb figure based on an estimation that anything less than twice the bird's weight in stuffing is jsut impolite.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: (not a misprint! there were once intelligent, educated woman programmers in usa. but when the profession became 'blue collar' - akin to, e.g., cement mixer operator - they mostly disappeared.) << chetty being one of them.
mircea_popescu: << why exactly does any of this have anything to do with sexism, discrimination or gender ?
assbot: Fire and forget, or sexism in software engineering ... ( )
mircea_popescu: idiot manager. no further explanation necessary.
mircea_popescu: undata: which runs counter to the point of hiring her << fwiw my read is exactly opposite. chick was fine, dude was inept.
mircea_popescu: you seriously can't tell me one walk every coupla weeks is overcommunicating.
mircea_popescu: fuck, back in the day if guys didn't hear a "walk with me" for a week or two straight they'd start worried they got fired and everyone forgot to tell em.
ben_vulpes: i do this with walks to the coffee shop
BingoBoingo offers that aluminum filings do a lot to stiffen up concrete
ben_vulpes: also firing decisions get made on day n and executed on n+1, but i understand that this is far more rigorous than my 'peers' could ever imagine pulling off.
ben_vulpes: because...raised by single mothers i guess.
fluffypony: fuck labour law
ben_vulpes: <babbys_first_bit> trilema and the convalex << lol convalexent
ben_vulpes: fluffypony: what does labor law have to do with anything?
fluffypony: I have to give my domestic worker a written warning today for washing (and screwing up) leather pillows
fluffypony: because the Basic Conditions of Employment Act won't let me fire her on the spot for that
ben_vulpes: your fault for hiring her officially i guess.
fluffypony: you don't have a choice
fluffypony: the BCEA says that she's an employee even without a contract
ben_vulpes: no, *you* don't have a choice.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: real question is whether mr o actually drinks the 'kool aid' re: riots being 'popular anger', or merely pretends to. <<< fwiw, i also happen to think they're based on popular anger.
mircea_popescu: just, not the sort of anger they like to ee there.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes afaik that's standard practice.
mircea_popescu: fluffypony aahahhaha gtfo.
mircea_popescu: why live in a country you can't fire the help
BingoBoingo actually thnks Micheal Moore circa 2005 was right, anger is mistargeted geographically
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: because the help is cheap :-P
mircea_popescu: how cheap ?
fluffypony: we pay her $13 a day
mircea_popescu: ok, that's cheap.
ben_vulpes: ah come man
mircea_popescu: course... how much were the leather pillows ?
ben_vulpes: you've invested more in training.
fluffypony: yeah and we're paying more than our neighbours
fluffypony: about $150 each
mircea_popescu: tbh, i wouldn't fire a 13 a day woman that fucked up something through not having a clue.
fluffypony: well that's the thing, she didn't know better
fluffypony: so a written warning should fix that going forward
mircea_popescu: yeah, srsly. fuck the act, why do you want to fire her.
ben_vulpes: fluffypony wants to complain about socialism
fluffypony: I don't - but having to write the warning down and get her to sign it irritates me
ben_vulpes: "mu labur"
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes if he does it backfired lol
mircea_popescu: fluffypony why lol
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: laziness :-P
mircea_popescu: eh get out, be the master you wish to see in the world.
fluffypony: I am the master of my own laziness
undata: fluffypony: take the massive discount you're getting on her standard of living and get another pillow
ben_vulpes: dude if you have multi hundo pillows you gotta instruct the staff w/r/t caretaking
undata: then say "if you aren't sure whether something can be washed, ask me"
undata: solved?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes he's new at this entire being rich thing.
fluffypony: heh heh
ben_vulpes: lol 13 dollar a day help is rich nao?
ben_vulpes: in south africa?
mircea_popescu: hey, you pay going rate, what.
fluffypony is rolling in the deep
mircea_popescu: so anyone invited rachel by the bay over here yet ?
ben_vulpes: undata: get it all derployed?
mircea_popescu: decimation: how does usg so utterly dominate the masses? <<< you can't be serious ?
ben_vulpes: <babbys_first_bit> "ARMORY BACKUP FOR EXTREME BITCOIN WEALTH" << lol get this character back in here
undata: ben_vulpes: yep, nothing broke. fiddling with http-kit atm
mircea_popescu: "the masses" exist thermodynamically because the government is giving them free stuff.
mircea_popescu: what "rebel"
ben_vulpes: nah fuggit's too late.
fluffypony: is 9am too early for beer?
ben_vulpes: plus there's not enough of this bottle left to properly share.
ben_vulpes: fluffypony: HELL NO
BingoBoingo: fluffypony: Never too early for beer. If you want to put a serious offer in on a butler though...
ben_vulpes: i mean if you're willing to drink that gut ruining obesity inducing shit
punkman: wine's better in the early hours
BingoBoingo: Vodka forever
ben_vulpes: wine is just better.
ben_vulpes: always.
undata: I prefer wine, cider, or liquor
BingoBoingo: ANd by vodka I mean grain alcohol + Distilled water
fluffypony: I only have red wine, and that's more an evening thing
ben_vulpes: undata: american cider is just fortified fruit juice.
BingoBoingo: BEst to mix one's own vodka
ben_vulpes: scrumpy tho
undata: ben_vulpes: this reverend nats is 6.9%, not too bad
ben_vulpes: residual sugars: rotyourteeth%
ben_vulpes: <babbys_first_bit> Why haven't the devs or the general userbase demanded we switch from BTC to micro BTC or whatever << okay okay i repent
fluffypony demands it
fluffypony: demand all of the things
ben_vulpes: <asciilifeform> this is a top reptilian priority. << this lizard hitler thing requires too much competence to be plausible. i prefer by miles and acres the "bureaucracy controlled by their enemies" interpretation.

mircea_popescu: With all of my music on there, suddenly I no longer needed to fight with whatever screwball music player was on my Linux box at the office. I just moved my headphones over to my laptop and kept them there. iTunes took over my music playing needs.
mircea_popescu: That's pretty much how it went. Soon, I found myself sitting on the couch at home chatting with people from the laptop instead of sitting at my desk where the "real" computer (Linux box) was. It slowly wormed its way into my life, and before long, I was using it to browse my usual haunts
mircea_popescu: that's EXACTLY what the plan is.

saifedean: serves you right for ruining a perfectly good bit of lamb with sacrilegious dough!
mircea_popescu: the dough is integral. it makes the meat softbake in steam.
mircea_popescu: it's like, steambaked tenderlon.
saifedean: yes, but with good grilling techniques, you don't need the dough... you're in argentina, get someone to build you a proper chulengo

mircea_popescu: told you to get a cloak like 5x. this'd be the sort of reason why.
saifedean: i tried getting a cloak, but it doesnt work from webchat. I downloaded two irc clients, but neither of them really works for whatever reason
mircea_popescu: lol the blessings of technology
mircea_popescu: anyway, it should work from webchat just as well, provided you've registered the name.
saifedean: I did register the name but the folks at freenode kept telling me a cloak wont work from webchat...
mircea_popescu: ah well then they proll know best ?
saifedean: my theory of isis is that they're better understood not as islamic fundamentalists, but as a byproduct of a socialist regime and diversity
saifedean: anywhere socialism goes, it spreads destruction and death... but when it goes to places with significant population diversity, it must also start civil wars
saifedean: for all the scaremongering about the evils of isis, they are still a tiny little sliver of what the glorious socialist regime of syria has achieved
mircea_popescu: to me it just looks like normal nationbuilding. same shit that happened in yugoslavia. same shit really that happened in every nation, except the westerners were quicker with it.
saifedean: wherein socialism was nation-destruction...
mircea_popescu: i dunno. the larger parts of isis are not actually nationally represented in the extant european-sponsored map of the region.
saifedean: well, empires and city-states were a much better workable model for everyone, westerners and occidentals,
mircea_popescu: no kurdish state, for instance.
saifedean: then the british decided to rule the world and found that spreading socialism and democracy is the ideal way to do so... first, give foreigners glorious revolution, then rule over the rubble
saifedean: if you folks haven't, you must check out the work of Antony Sutton, particularly about the Bolshevik Revolution
mircea_popescu: i think the pernicious influence of british "ideas" is well understood here lol.
saifedean: this is the 'Bruce Willis was dead all along" a-ha moment of twentieth century history. The Bolsheviks simply worked for the British and American banks, to bring down the Romanovs and destroy Russia
saifedean: And here's an interview with the author:
saifedean: the twentieth century was the century of spreading this model worldwide, burning all other human civilizations with the fatal acid of socialism, destroying their culture, society, religion and traditions, and then bringing in modern liberal democracy and its fiat central banks and IMF membership

mircea_popescu: adlai i wasn't being serious eh.
saifedean: how else could china turn into the west's dirty workshop, but through first burning its society with socialism
mircea_popescu: saifedean the world doesn't seem to have been putting up that much of a fight, mind.
saifedean: well, the tragedy is that the people who think they are putting up the fight are in fact the first line of attack of the enemies they imagine
adlai: mircea_popescu: well then, time to get serious, and demand of your personal media megaphone that it host denser content than mere snarky commentary :)
saifedean: fucking Hugo Chavez was selling his bonds to Goldman Sachs and Trotsky was getting paid by NY's bankers to launch revolution
mircea_popescu: but i like snarky commentary!
nubbins`: so buy a mad magazine
mircea_popescu: Speaking of Yazidi women captured by ISIS, Nazand Begikhani said, "These women have been treated like cattle... They have been subjected to physical and sexual violence, including systematic rape and sex slavery. They've been exposed in markets in Mosul and in Raqqa, Syria, carrying price tags."
mircea_popescu: heh. i imagine the porn based on this will last forever.
adlai: speaking of personal media megaphones, something quite interesting is happening in israel
mircea_popescu: i wonder how much 19yo prime (1.80, 80/60/80 or better) goes for in raqqa.
adlai is trying to find a commentary on this issue written in english, rather than google translate of hebrew articles
nubbins`: 1.80
nubbins`: height in cm : weight in kg
mircea_popescu: 1 meter 80 cm.
nubbins`: but that'd put her at 100kg
adlai: tl;dr: tycoon has a freely distributed "news"paper that gets handed out by the formerly homeless at bus and train stations... and now there's a bill passing through parliament to outlaw subscription-free distribution of newspapers
nubbins`: at a 1.8:1 ratio
adlai: it's a little subtler than that, but that's the general gist
nubbins`: i kid. anyway
nubbins`: i actually don't know my own height in meters

mircea_popescu: false dilemma.
mircea_popescu: tall voluptuous was the standard.
saifedean: what is the point of life if not for trade-offs!
adlai: problem is, this law doesn't kill newspapers, it just adds a few legal hurdles which likely make it harder for "legitimate" actors but are easily avoided by the propaganda machine
saifedean: which would you prioritize: height of voluptuousness?
mircea_popescu: i don't prioritize. my tradeoff is like this : i trade off your tradeoff for no tradeoff.
adlai: and the root problem is that literate monkeys just sponge up whatever they read
mircea_popescu: what do you prioritize in cars, that the brakes don't work or that the engine doesn';t work ?
nubbins`: broken engine is better
mircea_popescu: adlai i find the pretense of the israeli middle class so amusing. AS IF they being exceptional, they'll manage to keep teh at bay.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform incidentally, i think i may have made a breakthrough here. your idea of a "program that fits in head" and my displeasure at the backwards way linux has been going have a common spot.
mircea_popescu: "when in doubt, dike it out". this is the golden rule of all computer programming. logically, interfering with it is then evil.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: dike it out ?
mircea_popescu: you know, cut it out
mircea_popescu: like with a wire clipper.
mircea_popescu: so, if an absolute guarantee can be offered that any portion can be cut off, this probably satisfies both of us.
mircea_popescu: the problem is that in any current shitstack, if you cut ANYTHING out it "stops working".
mircea_popescu: ie, altogether.

asciilifeform: i learned of the man from locklin, incidentally
asciilifeform: went most of my life 'muntzing' without knowing it had any name.
mircea_popescu: anyway. yes. muntzing is the correct debugging approach.
mircea_popescu: any software/stack/platform/anything interfering with this is evil, for that reason.
asciilifeform: though i must say, a correctly-designed system (minimal) is likewise unmuntzable.
mircea_popescu: nah, this doesn't actually work. i recall this guy, the salesman dude. this isn't what's happening here.
asciilifeform: in that removal of anything whatsoever - kills.
mircea_popescu: he's an early exponent of the "80% of service with 20% of cost and try for 50% of price" thing,
mircea_popescu: which i decried as the evil that it is earlier.
asciilifeform: but one could argue that it should be readily apparent why kills.
asciilifeform: i'm no great fan of what he did. but the basic act (if not the result) deserves remembering.
mircea_popescu: anyway, i won't call this muntzing, but i will say that if i cut off include stdio.h from a program i expect it to a) compile and b) function ; without stdoutput.
mircea_popescu: The story around the industry was that he would wander around to an engineer's workbench and ask, "How's your new circuit coming?"
mircea_popescu: After a short discussion, Earl would say, "But, you seem to be over-engineering this - I don't think you need this capacitor." He would reach out with his handy nippers (insulated) that he always carried in his shirt-pocket, and snip out the capacitor in question.
mircea_popescu: Well, doggone, the picture was still there! Then he would study the schematic some more, and SNIP... SNIP... SNIP. Muntz had made a good guess of how to simplify and cheapen the circuit. Then, usually, he would make one SNIP too many, and the picture or the sound would stop working. He would concede to the designer, "Well, I guess you have to put that last part back in,"
mircea_popescu: ok, ok, maybe it's what it should be called.
ben_vulpes: ./ bitcoin

ben_vulpes: but what is our "picture"?
asciilifeform: 'Every program has at least one bug and can be shortened by at least one instruction — from which, by induction, it is evident that every program can be reduced to one instruction that does not work.'
mircea_popescu: this thing goes extremely deep, because honestly, what i don't like about i dunno, take your pick ? thins.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the part where it concludes "but it shouldn't" is under dispute here.
mircea_popescu: if it can, it should.
asciilifeform: variant on the ancient 'things should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler'
mircea_popescu: i guess i'm going to take a moment to pangloss all over myself, because imagine this! we live in the best world possible : just as the muntzing of the world is necessary, the collapse of the political is unavoidable.

decimation: "fair share"..."progress"... these are religious sentiments

kakobrekla: bad time to join cloakless
BingoBoingo: decimation: My favorite part is where nothing the Senator says supports the Author's claim in the way he thinks
decimation: ;;later tell ben_vulpes re: explain "usg has generally used the power of printed dollars to make it such that most people don't pay taxes" << Well, I was thinking of the very straightforward sense in which the majority of humans on us territory receive more dollars from usg than give to usg.
gribble: The operation succeeded.
decimation: note that these 'payments' are mostly not direct transfers (checks from the treasury). They are mostly things like implicit guarantee to banks that usg will 'force solvency', health 'insurance' (free health care), and 'free' roads.
decimation: One might protest: but they pay taxes too! Except - the eitc rebates much of the tax.
decimation: BingoBoingo: yeah the way I read the letter it's pretty clear that the writer flipped the 'crazy bit'
BingoBoingo: decimation: Either that or the lazy bit...
BingoBoingo: Or the "Oh noes, my 401k" bit
decimation: mircea_popescu: "all through 2015 we will be seeing a shitton of 50-somethings with so-so credentrials going all weirdo on bitcoin." << no they just realize that bitcoin == no free money for 'retirement'

assbot: AR-15 rifle stolen from St. Louis County police car torched by rioters in Ferguson : News ... ( )
decimation: BingoBoingo: I like the story about the black folk who protect the white-owned gas station
BingoBoingo: decimation: I thought that story was a gun store, not a gas station
decimation: "One exception - a Conoco gas station and convenience store."
BingoBoingo: Ah, Story
BingoBoingo: 's more boring than I thought
decimation: one wonders why more folks in Ferguson don't have a similar attitude - if for no other reason than the "don't shit where you eat" principle
mircea_popescu: ahh the weather here is so pleasant
decimation: in general, franchise businesses avoid setting up shop in us ghettos for exactly this reason
BingoBoingo: decimation: Well you have to consider North St Louis COunty ghettos aren't THAT compartamentalized. Most people looting weren't hitting where they eat
mod6: decimation: from the other night, this is what sticks out in my mind:
assbot: Logged on 25-11-2014 04:00:03; mircea_popescu: asciilifeform if the rats set fire to the lab, what'd you expect they'd burn ? the cages or the files ?
mircea_popescu: Bruce Fenton @brucefenton · 7h7 hours ago @kenhess Do I own Bitcoin? I see your research into me is about as weak as your article.
mircea_popescu: Ken Hess @kenhess · 7h7 hours ago @brucefenton I don't bother researching rancid Twitterati. And I don't care what you believe that you are. Again, do you own any Bitcoin?
mircea_popescu: ahem. how come all poor research is always defended in the same manner,
mircea_popescu: and with the same mannerisms ?
mircea_popescu: relatedly, how would one distinguish ken from tim ?
decimation: mircea_popescu: maybe this ken guy knows mr. flood
decimation: they appear to have a similar attitude toward civilized behavior
BingoBoingo: !up Vexual
Vexual: assbot talks to me now
mircea_popescu: <decimation> that zdnet "ken hess" story is amusing. In their hind-brain, the "guardings of the revolution" who are the shock-troops of the left recognize the clear danger bitcoin poses to their entire world << hence
assbot: Valiant prince MP explores the mother of all echo chambers. A saga of our times. pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu. ... ( )
mircea_popescu: what else did you think the something awful interest in bitcoin is and has been powered by, all these years.
mircea_popescu: roughly speaking, the progre's relation to bitcoin is fat ugly chick in your class that keeps calling you up and passing you notes in class, dozens of times a day. the content is all about how "women like to be treated" and "what makes a good man", but...
decimation: mircea_popescu: the reaction to bitcoin (by non-bitcoin holders) seems to fall into two camps: 1 - bitcoin sucks because I don't have any or 2. bitcoin sucks so I need to steal some
mircea_popescu: the hope is that you may give a shit.
mod6: haha
decimation: mircea_popescu: yeah that sums it up nicely
mircea_popescu: <decimation> mircea_popescu: "all through 2015 we will be seeing a shitton of 50-somethings with so-so credentrials going all weirdo on bitcoin." << no they just realize that bitcoin == no free money for 'retirement' << the problem there is that they actually DID work, and should have some money. problem is, in typical tardstalk fashion, they got scammed and having nothing left, are now siding with the scammer.
BingoBoingo: decimation: Number 1 tends to be incredibly popular amongst people who have other things
decimation: BingoBoingo: yeah pretty much as mircea just outlined
Vexual: so 10 and twenties have more to worry about?
decimation: "I got scammed so we are gonna scam you"
mircea_popescu: decimation just look at all the glbse fanbois who TO THIS DAY prefer to derp instead of admitting that mpoe-pr was right and they were stupid.
Vexual: surely the scamming wont continue forever, due to satoshi being a wizard
BingoBoingo: Nah, 2 seems more popular amongst people who never had anything except through scams of their own
mircea_popescu: then there was a period of ken slaugther powered nonsense, where the losers made threads about how mpex is teh scientology.
mircea_popescu: and on it will go, for as long as there's something standing the zombies will try to crowd it out while pretending it ain't standing.
BingoBoingo: I think the Ken SLaughter nonsense crowd moved on to GAW apologias, almost to a person
mircea_popescu: the "i want to believe" crowd.
mircea_popescu: the only spawn of democracy, really. they fit with the electoral cycle really well. today, derp goes "i shall make money out of cockroaches, just have to have a pile large enough". they spend a year piling up cockroaches. no money appears, but just in time for...
mircea_popescu: 4 years from now, "different" derp, "i will make money out of frogs"
mircea_popescu: they collect frogs for a while... whatever, if it works free money and if itdoesn't at least it wasn't work.
mircea_popescu: this can keep on for as long as how did it go "evil people refuse to pay their fair share".
decimation: When I read something like that I think of that little rat Marat
mircea_popescu: fuck em, who cares. they can starve chanting whatever they please to chant.
mircea_popescu: "fair share" or "hail mary", same difference.
decimation: at least "hail mary" doesn't generally end with "let's break out dr. guillotine"
mircea_popescu: ;;google "My law firm represents GAW Miners, LLC"

mircea_popescu: dude this is broken somehow.
mircea_popescu: a) none of those pages contains the string and b) as far as i can determine, the only site on the internet containing it is the qntra article.
assbot: "My law firm represents GAW Miners, LLC" - Google zoeken ... ( )
