pete_dushenski: + public health
pete_dushenski: “The human mating system is extremely flexible,” Bernard Chapais of the University of Montreal wrote in a recent review in Evolutionary Anthropology. Only 17 percent of human cultures are strictly monogamous. The vast majority of human societies embrace a mix of marriage types, with some people practicing monogamy and others polygamy.
mircea_popescu: that much is true.
mircea_popescu: there's probably a population somewhere in history that actually reproduced by flies carring sperm from splooge puddles into fetid snatches.
pete_dushenski: lol but of course, the retardosearchers go on to make unwarranted conclusions:
pete_dushenski: “Once monogamy has evolved, then male care is far more likely,” Dr. Opie said.
pete_dushenski: Once a monogamous primate father starts to stick around, he has the opportunity to raise the odds that his offspring will survive. He can carry them, groom their fur and protect them from attacks.
pete_dushenski: In our own lineage, however, fathers went further. They had evolved the ability to hunt and scavenge meat, and they were supplying some of that food to their children. “They may have gone beyond what is normal for monogamous primates,” said Dr. Opie.
pete_dushenski: The extra supply of protein and calories that human children started to receive is widely considered a watershed moment in our evolution. It could explain why we have brains far bigger than other mammals.
mircea_popescu: as far as the fabled 17% strictly monogamous cultures go... i very much doubt this ever happened. no culture in history was strictly monogamous for a strict definition of strictly.
pete_dushenski: Brains are hungry organs, demanding 20 times more calories than a similar piece of muscle. Only with a steady supply of energy-rich meat, Dr. Opie suggests, were we able to evolve big brains — and all the mental capacities that come with it.
pete_dushenski: Because of monogamy, Dr. Opie said, “This could be how humans were able to push through a ceiling in terms of brain size.”
mircea_popescu: absolute nonsense.
pete_dushenski: this is what taxdollars get you
mircea_popescu: actually i've not paid any tax dollars, but i appreciate teh intent.
mircea_popescu: in any case ; meat is not particularly energetic. fat is, but fat is widely available outside of animals : one could for instance eat nothing but aguacate and become really really smart - except it doesn't work in practice.
pete_dushenski: at least not for south americans
mircea_popescu: so... this guy is discussing interesting and otherwise important matters with all the astuteness of a virgin 15 yo girl from nantucket.
pete_dushenski: but maybe if we keep trying!
mircea_popescu: actually... i guess bernard chapais actually is a 15 yo from nantucket.
mircea_popescu: in any case there's no way to tell the difference.
mircea_popescu: for that matter, brain size per se is not well related to energetic consumption, nor to cognitive function for that matter. whales have some of the largest brains in the animalia kingdom, and somehow they're not writing stupid papers about 15yo virgin prisses.
pete_dushenski: it's not at all clear that larger brains are the function of a social behaviour, nor why they should be
pete_dushenski: right. size isn't the difference.
mircea_popescu: speaking of which, http://40.media.tumblr.com/e3908b614075918afd6d8f4e5ee1d839/tumblr_mu89pmypXh1rjh6r0o1_500.jpg

pete_dushenski: In some situations, ruthlessness may be necessary. “To be prime minister, you can’t be namby pamby – you need to cut corners and hurt people, and even be nasty to achieve your moral causes,” he says. After all, the dark personalities often have the impulse and the confidence to get things done –even Mother Theresa apparently had a steely side, he says. “You’re not going to help

cjc: mircea_popescu, The node I connect to in Chicago has been down inconveniently quite a bit in 2014, morgan.freenode.net. My observation of #freenode staffer availability in the past two months has been it is hit or miss for new users requesting cloaks and such.
mircea_popescu: meant more like over the past half decade.
cjc: Yes, when I started coming here before I registered my nick in 2003 --
cjc: There were developers here and like minded people seeking collaboration.
cjc: We now find many more casual users with a "multi-chat" Facebook type desire to use the network.
cjc: Its not really held up to the focus as established, perhaps due to insufficient moderation or self enforcement.
cjc: What are your thoughts?
mircea_popescu: seems to me kinda drifting without rudder, hoping it won't meet any serious icebergs.
cjc: Frankly, Freenode would be akin to one of the last standing freenets of the early 90s. If there was ever a problem with regard to insufficient support for the network monetarily --
cjc: I do not believe there would be a problem soliciting donations from users who find this the place to host their projects and to meet and talk with others about the same.
cjc: Channel population hasn't changed too dramatically in the last decade in #gentoo where I spend most of my time.
thestringpuller: lol gentoo
mircea_popescu: there was recently a problem with a nsa infiltration that's still being "investigated".

danielpbarron: heh "google charles lee"
pete_dushenski: google employee
pete_dushenski: a la hearn
pete_dushenski: danielpbarron: lol
asciilifeform: the 'cynical' answer would be that he didn't give a flying fuck about asic resistance in the general sense, but planned to build own asic.
danielpbarron: "no, charles lee googles you!"
asciilifeform: but did not do this, because could not steal enough.
asciilifeform: or sumthinglikethat
pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: the cynical answer could also be that he's a bad actor who tried to detract energies away from bitcoin at a pivotal moment
asciilifeform: or that
pete_dushenski: iirc litecoin was a 2011 thing
asciilifeform: but normally those are not merely malicious idiots, but avaricious malicious idiots
asciilifeform: by all rights he should have attempted the asic
asciilifeform: rather than waiting for the chinese
pete_dushenski: if he had the skillz
pete_dushenski: it's not clear that he did/does
pete_dushenski: or mebbe charles lee is a chinese mole!
cazalla: he is malicious because he contains to appear at conferences to tell people how a coin is all about the marketing regardless of whether what you say is factual or not. he's just the first iteration of garza
asciilifeform: i can't honestly say that i care very much why.
asciilifeform: it's dead.
pete_dushenski: cazalla: pumpers gotta pump and all that
asciilifeform: the original point of my objection to the qntra piece was that, afaik, 'litecoin' was different from every other altcoin in the sense that it was not simply an existing source tree with a dozen constants changed.
pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: at least litecoin didn't have a phoundation crudding it up to its gills over a period of years
cazalla: asciilifeform, i'm pretty sure every altcoin always launches with the idea of being different to every other altcoin
asciilifeform: idea.
asciilifeform: but not practice.
cazalla: pete_dushenski, it has had one for the last year along with a *talk.org forum.. it's pretty much the blue print for altcoins at this point, launch your altcointalk.org, have a foundation and premine under the guise the foundation will use the coins in some fund to spread adoption
asciilifeform: i mean, i get it, it's become scarcely distinguishable from other pumpcoinz
asciilifeform: but initially there was a vaguely-plausible reason for thinking people to go 'hmm' when reading about litecoin.
ben_vulpes: pete_dushenski: best electric tranny is ICE powered.
cazalla: of course, which is why i got into it to begin with but in hindsight, just sour grapes at missing cheaper bitcoin
asciilifeform: at the minimum, it was a 'spare' in case of a catastrophic break in sha2
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> the 'cynical' answer would be that he didn't give a flying fuck about asic resistance in the general sense, but planned to build own asic << There was drama about a collaborator of his GPU mining this GPU unminable coin from the start
asciilifeform: (if that seems like a 'martian' concept, look up 'satcoin')
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i did not know this, but it isn't very surprising.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Collaborator was also one of the first, notorious BTC GPU miners
pete_dushenski: cazalla: a, a newer thing then, another "but it worked for the us" scenario
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: even tesla's have to get leccy from somewhere
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: and what was that miata bit? is this your dream car or.. ?
cazalla: BingoBoingo, i've heard that as well and i suspect he used his brother's exchange to offload his early coins to chinese suckers, that's what that whole bitcoin/litecoin brothers reunited bullshit was about, the fucking gall of that guy http://media.coindesk.com/2014/03/Banner_en_BTCChina.jpg

assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 21350 @ 0.00035373 = 7.5521 BTC [-] {2}
cazalla: no proof of course but i wouldn't put it past a guy to do that.. a guy that is willing to get up in front of a room and admit what he says isn't true but that it's OK because "marketing"
pete_dushenski: and now lee is presumably sipping mai tais somewhere because i swear he hasn't made a peep in 12 months
cazalla: still a coinbase despite telling the faithful that coinbase will add litecoin and that he'll leave if they don't

mats: er, not tax filings, but financial documents -- also, what about electronic storage devices?
