BingoBoingo: If you wanna work put together some pieces for qntra. Otherwise you can play in your kitchen with whey protein and beef tallow to find a palatable but less hippie vegetarian alternative to peanut butter.

liquidassets: wait wut? is partial food the 'cause'? or is there some reason for this ? lol
BingoBoingo: Or maybe try Olestra for the same purpose

BingoBoingo: If you go to Walmart a kilo of powder is right about $20, but can be had for more or less.
punkman: olive oil doesn't go rancid like tallow btw
BingoBoingo: I bet it can. Anyways right now I'm thinking about the low calorie version with Olestra/Sefnose/Astroglide as the lipid
punkman: why not pure whey if you are going for low calories?
BingoBoingo: Because expensive and lipids are needed to produce a nut butter consistency
BingoBoingo: Prolly also add Theobromine for the habit forming
liquidassets: oh god my side hurts
liquidassets: ok ok, it doesn't actually contain any bromine, I suppose that's a good thing
punkman: well you also get the bonus anal leakage with teh indiegestible lipids

BingoBoingo: <punkman> well you also get the bonus anal leakage with teh indiegestible lipids << It means at the gymp people will really think you are putting your all into your squats
punkman: yes, that is why I don't buy peanutbutter, too tasty, too much fat
punkman: I got the idea of pistachio butter stuck in my head last few weeks though
BingoBoingo: Also gotta remember I'm not necessarily thinking about something I'd want to eat. I'm imagineering a product that could be marketed to great success and high margin
punkman: I don't see the margins, unless you can get dirt cheap whey. maybe another source of protein.
punkman: cockroach protein perhaps?
BingoBoingo: Collagen, it's what people already use to pad their protein in testing now that they know doing that with melamine gets them caught when death follow

asciilifeform: it is entirely possible for an old (to a point) man to shoot better, take more physical punishment, run faster, even - than disposable cannon fodder. to a point. but the one thing that doesn't grow back is... WANTING TO. i.e. thinking that, in greenspun's words, 'the group is worth impressing' via suicidal stupidity
mircea_popescu: being white.
mircea_popescu: being white is, by and large, "not wanting to be alive anymore".
mircea_popescu: which chtonic inclination is both understandable with cultural age and certain to meet its satisfaction.
asciilifeform: this'd be possibly the one place where everybody eventually gets what he wants.
mircea_popescu: anyway, greenspun in this interpretation embodies the affliction, in how he falsely if conveniently paints a will-to-live in the terms of "impressing the group"
mircea_popescu: if you think the stotting buck is stotting "to impress the she-herd" you've spent a little too much time i nschool.
mircea_popescu: yes, the behaviour has that effect. but the buck stotts because it can, not "so as to".

mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes they should, yeah
ben_vulpes: also what constitutes expenditures?
ben_vulpes: not that anyone cares, but things i'd like to see pre-ipo:
ben_vulpes: - monthly reports
ben_vulpes: - description of expenditures
ben_vulpes: - tax payments
ben_vulpes: not that i'm even going to look at the blockchain on the latter, but they should at least show up on the balance sheet, even if they are going directly into naphex' pocket
mircea_popescu: that's actually kinda the idea.
ben_vulpes: ofc but for logreaders.
kakobrekla: i rather confused reading this statement but i may be thick
mircea_popescu: questions help.
mircea_popescu: for me for instance it is quite informative that a reasonable timespan for public consultation is ~2 mo.
mircea_popescu wonders if monthly reports aren't too frequent.
kakobrekla: fees are taken on withdrawals? how much is that fee?
ben_vulpes: monthly is an adequate frequency for inspecting operators commitment to the project.
mircea_popescu: !up whiterock
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes yeah, that's true.
ben_vulpes: see davout and x.eur
ben_vulpes: too late, whiterock, mircea_popescu beat you to it.
kakobrekla: what are these private investments? do those investors get same shares as (will be) on mpex?
whiterock: haha thanks
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla that's just the guy putting money in from his pocket.
kakobrekla: dividends are 9 from 35?
ben_vulpes: board can authorize divs of whatever size they want to?
mircea_popescu: anyway, i dun recall what they charged, a few % but sliding scale
kakobrekla: yeah these numbers dont make any sense to me still.
whiterock: hi guys i cant back read the topi. if its ok, may i know what is being discussed?
ben_vulpes: shareholder equity implies a previous investment round as well.
ben_vulpes: whiterock: find the topic with /topic
mircea_popescu: whiterock try the log eh.
ben_vulpes: but that has nothing to do with the topic
kakobrekla: > as fees are calculated on withdrawal >Dividend to shareholders9.6487 > Withdrawals*35.7354 >
whiterock: oh great thanks
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes no, it's an accumulator value. everything not otherwise accounted is shareholder equity.
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla and where's the problem ?
kakobrekla: 9 btc on 35 btc ?
mircea_popescu: they're not really related tho. so the site paid 35 btc in withdrawals (by performers) and 9 btc in dividends
ben_vulpes: like i said kakobrekla the 'board' can pay whatever in divs apparently
mircea_popescu: it can pay whatever it wants in dividends, up to its entire cash balance.
kakobrekla: but site generates div from fees on withdrawals
mircea_popescu: no, it generates dividends on board say-so out of its cash
mircea_popescu: just as long as they're paid fairly (ie, by share ownership proportion) they can be any arbitrary value between 0 and entreprise value
kakobrekla: so he paid 9to himself if i understand this correctly?
mircea_popescu: logically he put 23 in got 9 out, seems to me
ben_vulpes: ;;calc 23.8804/7.16412
gribble: 3.33333333333
whiterock: is punkman around btw?
ben_vulpes: ;;calc 7.16412/23.8804
gribble: 0.3
kakobrekla: and 'platform dev' ? is he charging the actual work needed with the site?
ben_vulpes: 30% depreciation in server value over four months and some days?
ben_vulpes: aaa fractional months
mircea_popescu: the one problem i see in there is that if there's 73 deposited and 35 withdrawn, the difference is unearned income, and improperly reported as shareholder equity.
mircea_popescu: should really be under viewers i suppose.
ben_vulpes: yeah also what is platform dev
ben_vulpes: and why is that reported as an asset value increase
whiterock slaps punkman around a bit with a large fishbot
mircea_popescu: that i recall the discussion of. i asked if it has resale/license value, and he said yes.
ben_vulpes: !down whiterock
mircea_popescu: so in principle, it could be sold.

mircea_popescu: and i guess more people.

mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes afaik their major weakness is an inability to run in anything but chrome atm
ben_vulpes: that has nothing to do with depreciation schedule.
mircea_popescu: no, but it has a lot to do with future cost.
ben_vulpes: and think what you will, constraining the operating environment to just chrome is a pretty sensible cost-reducing move.
mircea_popescu: i didn't veto it or anything.
mircea_popescu: jus' saying.
ben_vulpes: you can make the consumers "come to expect" anything, unless mgmt insists pigheadedly on cross-browser support chasing "lift" or "conversion" or some such, chrome should be adequate.
ben_vulpes: ofc this buys also the risk of google ripping the sheets out from under one.
mircea_popescu: i dunno that anyone's downloading a browser to run your spunk app.
mircea_popescu: moreover, unless google;'s paying for this, why the fuck am i dirving their dumbass product on my dime.
