mircea_popescu: nevertheless, it's plenty applicable, if one talks forks.

mircea_popescu: the same's true throughout.

asciilifeform: 'usg employees don't even get fiat' << this is true in a strictly technical sense. but in fact senior nomenklatura ('ses' and up, but also grey-usg folk like uni professors) bring in very decent dough via 'contracting' and pseudo-industrial gigs.

mircea_popescu: you can buy about 100k and it stays at 5bn

asciilifeform not convinced that this works as described

asciilifeform: sooo i was out walking by the uni, and found a thumb drive
BingoBoingo was surptised when joining #bitcoin-asset-trades just how much stuf didn't make the cut for arriving here
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Interesting trap in thumbdrive?
asciilifeform: full of 'business school' homework from unpronounceably-named chinese exchange students
BingoBoingo: lol
asciilifeform: they were assigned 'digital currencies'
asciilifeform: and the required reading dir is full of 'whitepapers' concerning 1990s-style centralized shitpal-esque 'coins'
thestringpuller: asciilifeform: i'ma let you finished but what level of hotness are the sorority girls at said uni?
asciilifeform: some chick cries now for lacking her powerpointz
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: all levels
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: but very commonly they (at least the native ones) have 'agricultural face'
asciilifeform: or whatever it is called here
mod6: haha
thestringpuller: diversity at its finest.
thestringpuller: mod6 def knows the type.
asciilifeform: it's not even an ethnicity, but more of a state of mind

gernika: BingoBoingo: something's wrong with this sentence I think: "Vaizey instead want to part the buyer and his purchase to part in a sale as has happened previously when 'cultural' export bans have been applied to artifacts."
BingoBoingo: gernika: thanks, fixed
