BingoBoingo: People way off in insanity and people still level 1 insanity might percieve a bond until their insanities collide
mircea_popescu: the only vaguely concerning point was that i thought hilary's presidency a foregone conclusion since about i dunno, 2008 or so.
mircea_popescu: but shit like this don't bode well.
mircea_popescu: senator hurrdurr (who really seems an exact mirror image of ron paul in left colorings) is certainly out of the question, but omfg don't tell me trump takes over and does a postmodern rendition of reagan
pete_dushenski: if anything can upset that woman's dreams, it's the donald
BingoBoingo: The race right now is fucked. The left press called Rubio the winner of the first GOP debate before any poll numbers and Rubio close to platonically stupid.
pete_dushenski: if u.s. politics is a tv game show, which it so often seems to be, how could trump (or someone equally outrageous) lose ?
mircea_popescu: jeez.
mircea_popescu: you know, romanian "press" and "social media" got very much similarly humiliated in 2008 when a romanian sort of donalt trump trampled all over their girlbits.
mircea_popescu: it was kinda the point it became obvious the alt-planet lost the battle, there.
mircea_popescu: and it was beautiful, five years of 10-20% shrinkage in "advertising spending" were followed by a 80% and two 50%s.
mircea_popescu: to the point 100s of romanian taylor swifts got recently arrested for prostitution (they were doing it for 1-200 euros, rate price)

mircea_popescu: mats seriously, publications detailing the process ?
mircea_popescu: tell you what. unless i can personally break it, it does not meet my definition of "open".
mircea_popescu: that's what open is : something that continues only inasmuch i do not break it.
mircea_popescu: if it can protect itself, it's closed.
asciilifeform: ^
mircea_popescu: so yes, my slavegirls are open processes.
mats: as you suggest, open-ness is subject to personal definitions
mircea_popescu: that'd be about it. claims to the contrary are an exercise in directed disingenuity.
mircea_popescu: and there's nothing wrong with it being a closed process, either. other than - don't expect folks whoi aren't politically alligned to give a slightest fuck.
mircea_popescu: not like the us police implements the rules dreamed up byu the supreme soviet of north korea
mircea_popescu: and this without any discussion of the merits. as great as they may be. and without even reading them.
mircea_popescu: because they make very strictly no difference whatsoever.
asciilifeform: it always boggled my mind how anyone could have ever seen 'fips' etc. as representing anything other than 'breakable by usg with reasonable cost'

BingoBoingo: If I recall SHA-3 draft FPGA outdates Bitcoin mining FPGA
mats: well, hand-waving aside, "SHA-3 has no known security issues, whereas SHA-1, MD5, and SHA-512 are susceptible to length-extension. SHA-1 and MD5 are vulnerable to collision attacks, which are expensive for SHA-1, but which are cheap and allow chosen-prefixes for MD5."
asciilifeform: md5 long buried, and cement poured over the grave
mircea_popescu: sha 512 length extension was demonstrated ?
asciilifeform: length extension is an operator error thing strictly.
asciilifeform: can be entirely ruled out in a correct design.
wilbns: excerpt: "We are told that the OBEY sign, with or without the GIANT sign, is anti-authoritarian. But is the fact
wilbns: that a lot of young people are wearing shirts with the words OBEY on them—without knowing

mircea_popescu: sooo, i got a rather amusing internal report from reddit. it would seem that
mircea_popescu: a) very few entries actually get > 100 upvotes. as in, it's happened twice so far this year. b) the number of negative votes exceeds the positive by a degree of magnitude or more on average, and regularly by two degrees on "popular" items. when this doesn't happen it's always obscure stories with one or two votes.
shinohai: O.o
mircea_popescu: c) to cope with this situations the admins universally make up random vote counts ; d) to cope with the shortage of manpower this causes all sorts of exponential factorizations are used, which means that in practice a story is first "fast tracked" which means some admin ticks a box and from there on it gets all sorts of factors and additions
mircea_popescu: e) the system is pretty byzantine so that admins regularly can not predict what the results of their choices will actually be

mircea_popescu: and finally g) they've been bleeding people from engineering at an ever accelerating rate since 2010 (or earlier) and by now it's so bad people leave during the first three months as a regular occurence. they briefly and unsuccessfully tried the "pay more" approach, it didn't do much, currently they've practically given up on the problem altogether.

shinohai: reddit is doomed to go the way of digg
mircea_popescu: amusingly enough, no, because apparently all sorts of people (who otherwise have no money and no influence, which is to say - their inept choices ands valuations have stranded them irl) think it's incredibly important and valuable!
shinohai: Conde Nast I guess feels the need to dump resources into it.
mircea_popescu: these'd be all sorts of self-described activists, which in any other place'd be known as "political arivists" except this doesn't apply because they're actually too fat/lazy/lost in self to even have ambitions.
mircea_popescu: i suspect it's alltogether more layered laziness, such as, "if i give up the delusion that my activity on the rickety house of cards we call reddit matters, i will have to find other work to do as part of my being politically important, which is hard and risks requiring me looking up from the tablet or going out of starbucks. so let's instead pretend."
mircea_popescu: in any case, reddit's gonna die its own, livejournal-y sort of death. digg iirc died when it crashed against a thick brick wall of "nobody cares".

mircea_popescu: the most relevant part of all this to bitcoin being that price stickiness (principally, the stubborn refusal of old people to admit that real estate they once bought is not now worth what they paid for it) may very well require inflation as the best social solution.
mircea_popescu: by a damned sight better than say, beatings. and it's altogether unclear an alternative to these exists.

mircea_popescu: mno.
mircea_popescu: not at all.
asciilifeform: why not
mircea_popescu: this is beyond naive.
mircea_popescu: because the context has changed. in 1971 a lot of schmucks knew their place.
mircea_popescu: that do not know it today.
mircea_popescu: chiefly through the process of, the world of 1971 not being worth two shits in the terms of today.
asciilifeform: thought it was the reverse ?
asciilifeform: (how many current 'engineers' could pass 1971 exam? etc)

mircea_popescu: but i mean... sure, he's uppity. i have yet to see a sign of intelligence.
asciilifeform: hence the combo of 'brain' but 'wtf'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform how's that relate to hm.
mircea_popescu: i dunno, i kinda don't look at that part, because plenty of orthodox nuts otherwise very intelligent.
mircea_popescu: also a few jews with the same odd behaviour.
asciilifeform not a shrink. but, on reflection, has seen this before.
asciilifeform: 'You did virtually nothing to create the conveniences you enjoy. The retirement plan 300 years ago was: get up, go to work, come home, go to bed, repeat. Then one day, you didn't get up because you were dead. ' << mega-clairvoyant! knows my retirement plan!

mircea_popescu: i beg to differ.
mircea_popescu: i am not a person in the sense of this rootless, hopeless lotus floating on a sea that somehow is owned byu "the state".
asciilifeform: then to herr dutch you are a dragon and don't exist
asciilifeform: naturally.
mircea_popescu: i am the proud result of an endless line that predates all states, and the fucking lake, the lake's bottom, and the core of the earth are mine.
mircea_popescu: so... take teh "oh you didn't create" talk an' dangle.
mircea_popescu: no state ever created anything. it was another mircea that carried the fucking head of the turk pasha after that one failed crusade when all of europe ran off and the us wasn't invented yet.
asciilifeform: dutch (damn it why do i have to run this fella under emulation..) would prolly answer 'you and what nuke'
mircea_popescu: and so there.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah, but i care what he asks like i care what the mosquito buzzes.
mircea_popescu: he'd better buzz out of range, if it knows what's good for its retirement plan.
asciilifeform is reading these words to the tune of a million actual mosquitoes. somehow appropriate
mircea_popescu: you know they don't seem to exist here ?
asciilifeform: we have'em here: large, small, all sizes
mircea_popescu: fucking insane, river, swamp, the works.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: and the ones that did exist, could not bite me!
asciilifeform: srsly wtf
asciilifeform: folks kept swatting'em but apparently nobody - iirc - bitten
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes ? mod6 ? any of you went home with mosquito bite ?
mircea_popescu: they are kinda incredibly derpy.
mircea_popescu: Conservatives oppose abortion but are okay with war and capital punishment. (So am I - I think everyone in the capital deserves to be punished)
mircea_popescu: better watch out alf, he's coming for you.
asciilifeform already in pretty good punishment just by living here
mod6: <+asciilifeform> ben_vulpes ? mod6 ? any of you went home with mosquito bite ? << heheh. i might have gotten a bite or two. i paid them back ~10x iirc.
nubbins`: nah i don't crochet
nubbins`: i think that was a lens flare
mod6: where i live these things are not just a nuisance like in .ar, but ubiquitous
asciilifeform: almost thick enough to walk on, here.
mod6: heheheh
mod6: 'tis one of the reasons i enjoyed camping in the west so much, back east the mosquitoes try to carry you away.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform install filtyers, make diesel ?
mircea_popescu: "More specifically, nobody wants a meritocracy based on actual accomplishment. What both camps really want is a meritocracy of values, that is, an aristocracy in which position is dictated by attitude and conduct."
mircea_popescu: heh. usians don't want to work no more. news at 99:99
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: for all i know, my tank is full of precisely mosquito petrol even now.
mircea_popescu: "hola nos quedamos sin trabajo mi esposo y yo y busco ayuda economica a cambio de sex para asi poder ahorrar algo y poner un negocio soy ama de casa no modelo ni profecional en esto soy bajita 36 años"
mircea_popescu: definitely a new one.
asciilifeform: ^ brendafdez ?
mircea_popescu: (housewife wants money to get sex change operation to earn money to start a business)
mircea_popescu: nah
asciilifeform: mega-inv3stm3nt.
mircea_popescu: this has got to be some sort of very specialised praying on aging usian expats.
mircea_popescu: it makes no sense outside of "a collection of fetishes liable to drive a 60 yo protestant dude with money"
asciilifeform: oughtn't it be in the king's inglisch then ?
mircea_popescu: maybe that's a giveaway

asciilifeform: 'You eat food you didn't grow and in many cases have no idea where it came from or what it looks like in nature. You rely on elaborate machines to get you places, but have no idea how they work. If your car stops, you have no idea what went wrong or what to do to fix it. In many cases, there is nothing you personally can do. To travel long distances you get into a big flying tube that leaves you completely at the mercy of othe

The productive view them not so much as loathsome insects, as puppies who will eventually go to the pound if they pee on the rug too often.'
asciilifeform: (dutch)
mircea_popescu: in this vein : went to pharmacy here, told pharmacist what i want, he went and fetched. cox-2 inhibitor, no prescription needed becasuse the criteria in argentina is "do you speak the language ? if not, get someone who does to write what you need down for you"
mircea_popescu: but i happen to speak that language.
asciilifeform: iirc banned by usg
asciilifeform: who still makes them ?
asciilifeform: (india?)
mircea_popescu: msotly banned because the idiots prescribed them like they prescribe anything, "forever", and they don't work forever.
mircea_popescu: but still unparalleled for extemporaneous intervention.
asciilifeform: how will pharma execs snort coke from golden toilets if prescribing were not forever, aha
mircea_popescu: and this was produced by merck. for "export", ie, "to be sold in sane countries"
asciilifeform: how will predatory castes of lawyers, 'social workerz', etc. eat
mircea_popescu: 30 bux, 28 pills.
asciilifeform: spiffy
mircea_popescu: for their effectual purpose, good for a decade or more.
asciilifeform: like most pharma
mircea_popescu: meanwhile usians with the same sort of problem get substandard care in the shape of cox-1&2 inhibitors in massive dossage.
asciilifeform: (the exceptions are few and generally well-documented)

mircea_popescu: (if anyone is curious - yes the pharmacist tested me. he asked "what dosage ?" and i said uh... 100... maybe 50, no, not really. 80 ? turns out he had 60, 90 and 120. because 50 is not really quite enough and 100 is maybe a little too much, but if those are the options go for 100
mircea_popescu: and once i knew that, he had no further questions)
asciilifeform: what of classical dopes, of the 'down' or 'up' kinds, either
asciilifeform: also sold for the asking ?
mircea_popescu: not usually carried.
mircea_popescu: they're petrified of "insecuridad" these folks. like they live with the vikings or something.

asciilifeform once visited a shop, not far from home, which sold gigantic safes. most of the pre-owned units were from pharmacies, and some had catalogues of the contents still glued to inside of door
mircea_popescu: safe, like fighter jet , is not the whole story.
asciilifeform: naturally.
mircea_popescu: and the people who actually have the whole story do not reaslly employ safes
mircea_popescu: or at least a story on my blog tends to support this theory.
asciilifeform: the safes existed to begin with on account of usg fiat
asciilifeform: (the drugs are cheap and their theft is no serious loss to the shop)
asciilifeform: story?
mircea_popescu: you recall, the whores.
asciilifeform thinks
asciilifeform: which whores
mircea_popescu: http://trilema.com/2011/spargatorii-si-curva/ there.

asciilifeform: 'One of the juicier scientific scandals of recent times involves Dutch psychologist Diederik Stapel, who admitted to fabricating many of his research results. A full list of Stapel's falsified articles hasn't been published, but the titles of some of his articles (some of which may not be tainted) offer insights. The article that outed him was "Coping with Chaos: How Disordered Contexts Promote Stereotyping and Discrimination.
asciilifeform: " ... ... Lots of emphasis on stereotyping, how we construct reality, and so on. Nothing that challenges the basic assumptions of social scientists at all. And that's really how he got away with it. He reported what his colleagues expected to see. ... There are probably tons of articles in the scientific literature based on faked data, and undetected because the results were uncontroversial. There are many more where data were
asciilifeform: filtered or fudged but which remain undetected because the end results were correct. Still more contain honest errors that went undetected because the overall results were valid or the error was peripheral to the main point of the paper.'
mircea_popescu: where "uncontroversial" = fit the political agenda
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: how else.
mircea_popescu: like "global warming" flavour of "uncontroversial". like lysenko "uncontroversial"
mircea_popescu: like psychological school of moscow "uncontroversial". asshats.
asciilifeform: (there is also the 'impenetrably obscure' flavour of 'uncontroversy')

mircea_popescu: anwyay, lest we be too harsh on the social pseudoscientists that gotta eat,
mircea_popescu: one must remember the fabled charge of the electorn measurements.
mircea_popescu: people are just assholes, is all.
asciilifeform: that's kinda the one i think of automatically
mircea_popescu: myeah.
asciilifeform: and incidentally just about every serious field has own millikan
asciilifeform: or three
asciilifeform: almost a pons asinorum for basic literacy in $subject - 'name the millikans.'
asciilifeform: (one can debate whether it is proper to speak of a millikan in a subject without experimentals, like mathematics. but overall anybody who fogs brains with his auctoritas while even in the grave, is a millikan)
