jurov: unlike silicon it isn't so sensitive to impurities

brendafdez: I'll be seeing a journalist from the NYT today, I was thinking of telling him about b-a
brendafdez: it's the second time he's in Argentina interviewing the people he *thinks matter in bitcoin here
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> i wonder how much money that nets them << You probably missed this because winblows free, but for the longest time it was impossible to get computer with winblows that did not have factory installed malware. Popular advice of the time was "reinstall winblows onto new computer"
BingoBoingo: <brendafdez> it's the second time he's in Argentina interviewing the people he *thinks matter in bitcoin here << Thet tend to suck at identifying that, but it could just as much be the orders they recieve from their political commisar
BingoBoingo: <jurov> and use cnc machine with spool of thin wire to make IC out of it with point-contact transistor? << Now that I'm more sober laser etching saphire to flow a conductor over doesn'r sound so bad.
brendafdez: I didn't ask him what move him. He's very interested in 'seeing the black market in action'. They see it in an amusing light, as if that's a bad thing or something, like going around the city with stacks of cash. And that's actually the closest it gets to bitcoin in fiat.
brendafdez: Last time was also Pete from Coindesk, he interviewed all the poeple claiming to run 'exchanges' here. There are a huge numer of such 'exchanges', most of which don't even exist like coinmelon (refered to by mp as coinmuon bc of the sign at the doorbell). Then there's Latincoin, which is also there athe 'embassy' and also doesn't even exist and is only piching to 'investors' to get money with no product. Last time they were asking for $7
BingoBoingo: brendafdez: Ah, so he was ordered by his poltical officer to slander Argentina's image
BingoBoingo: brendafdez: You have to understand that today's NYtimes is more soviet than pravda could ever have hoped to be
brendafdez: Having the adware preinstalled sort of spares the user the time and ensures they get a consistent experience with a box compromised from the get go. It's an integral part of the user experience, they wouldn't feel right without the bloat and the ads.
BingoBoingo: brendafdez: Sony actually used to have an option (extra $50 US or so) to not have factory adware on your computer when they ship it

brendafdez: we're meeting now in an hour at a local 'Subway' and then they are coming with me seeing how people buy and sell bitcoins for stacks of cash, which always amuses them, they love seeing the 'stakcks of cash', which is not uncommon here with the largest denomination bill being 8 USD
BingoBoingo: Ah
brendafdez: they love anything that can be portrayed in a bad light as the shady things that happen in this third world country. Like using bitcoin to avoid selling the usd to the government and then selling the bitcoins in the street
BingoBoingo: Sounds a lot like how they covered the rebellion in North St Louis
chetty: third world eh?
BingoBoingo: You just have to remember that New York has become more third world than even Nuevo Laredo. They don't even has cash in New York anymore.
brendafdez: and they are convince the "president of the Argentine Bitcoin Foundation" really matters. It's amusing that said foundation doesn't even exist. But I get asked all the time if i'm part of it, they take me more seriously when I say yes xD
chetty: lmao
BingoBoingo: brendafdez: Just say you are liking the shadow foundation more lately

NewLiberty: XBT will kill USD regardless of what Gavin may or may not do
danielpbarron: that is true, because gavin has nothing to do with bitcoin
NewLiberty: USD will kill USD, even without XBT
NewLiberty: Its self defeating
NewLiberty: A made to fail ponzi
danielpbarron: and stop trying to teach us new terms; we don't care that you prefer 'xbt' to 'btc' or that a dollar used to mean silver

NewLiberty: But having minted a fair share of silver, I have some opinions on the use of "dollar" as that paper drek
danielpbarron: silver isn't money; anyone who says otherwise is likely scamming you
NewLiberty: I've used it for money
NewLiberty: and gold
danielpbarron: i've used cannabis as money; doesn't make it not stupid
NewLiberty: relatively it is stupid
danielpbarron: it's practically the same thing
NewLiberty: yes practicality is largely why is is stupid.
BingoBoingo: cannabis and silver are largely the same thing monetarily, inflation a huge problem. Gold less so. Bitcoin far less so.
thestringpuller: cannabis is perishable tho
thestringpuller: hue hue
NewLiberty: Silver also, gold isn't
danielpbarron: in CT, cannabis is way more fungible than silver; just trade it before it goes bad :p
NewLiberty: Or before it goes up in smoke
thestringpuller: hue hue
thestringpuller: CT also decriminalized cannabis
thestringpuller: dunno how they are able to keep up with demand given...snow and stuff
danielpbarron: yeah that's why i specified CT; i'd wager it's a lot less fungible in oklahoma
NewLiberty: CA somewhat decriminalized. Most strip malls have a dispensary.
thestringpuller: danielpbarron: i was born in hartford btw

chetty raises hand
cazalla: boy wanting to be girl i mean, tom boys are a given

chetty: why do you suppose tom boys are a given, but boys wanting to be girls is wierd?
mircea_popescu: and to help everyone interested evaluate the above numeric claims : at the time in romania, housing was "allocated", to first time parents. so basically, you'd marry, play with the wife, once she missed a period you made a claim with your place of employment and ~1 year later they'd give you the keys to a new apartment. the density was maybe 1k / sqkm. i was a first born, but most families had two or more children - pl
mircea_popescu: enty as many as four or five.
mircea_popescu: consequently, in the 1sqkm area that's the hunting grounds of one healthy boy, i literally knew, by sight, thousands of kids.
mircea_popescu: and then in school, three 4 year cycles of 1-3k kids each.
mircea_popescu: 10k is a fair outer bound.
cazalla: chetty, i guess because i grew up knowing of some whereas the idea that a boy would think he is a girl was foreign to me until more recent years.. just an anecdote, but i see most of the boy to girl shit coming from sjw types, that's all
trinque: cazalla: seems that's part of a larger category of "identity fuck"

trinque: this idea that one can identify as anything, plant, mineral, sports mascot
mircea_popescu: chetty i suspect it's one way but not the other for purely biological reasons. specifically : 9 yos can do the same number of pull-ups.
