mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: '...for your convenience we have packaged the defective 8% of transistors you asked for, separately!' (tm) (r)
mircea_popescu: depends to. the problem here is that high value males are interested in owning females, not interested in producing litter. consequently, western world has fertility crisis.
mircea_popescu: if society were actually sane, i'd prolly reproduce, so the cost issue is iffy.
asciilifeform: ~nobody cares to breed muppets for hitler's army.
mircea_popescu: quite.
mircea_popescu: even without shoehorning "hitler" in here, the only sane way reproduction works is that i have life and death power over any offspring until they go on their own.
asciilifeform: aha!
mircea_popescu: then the female drive to reproduce is finally balanced, and i frankly wouldn't care if they want or don't want to get pregnant, make your own choices.

asciilifeform: for offspring you need sane world + economic surplus (at least at the not-being-in-labour-camp level)
mircea_popescu: demographically it's rather lulzy, tho. take europe : it went through three to twelve generations of this negative selection, 0 reproduction from higher value individuals, depending how you count the generations. and, woe of woes : BEFORE, the better tatars came raiding, and raped. so it fixed things, for a century or two.
asciilifeform: or, alternatively, being stray dog who doesnt giveafuq
mircea_popescu: but now, the higher value arabs are ALSO sitting home with the bitches, and sending the runts over.
mircea_popescu: there is ~no way europe doesn't turn into africa.

asciilifeform: 5mn snackbat cox tho
asciilifeform: snackbar
mircea_popescu: well, it cares, because that 500mn europe has a 1.x children per woman, and 90% of them are made with idiots, and the 5mn are... also idiots. once you start looking at the actual demographic breakdown, it couldn't really take 50k of the derps.

asciilifeform: and if i ask a fella what he had for dinner, his reponse also dies with the question, no ?
mircea_popescu: mno. the policeman looks at the item, and asks question. the psychotic thief looks AT THE POLICEMAN and "answers" question.
mircea_popescu: there's no meeting there, one's lost in his own mind.

asciilifeform: wtf is an amulet comment
mircea_popescu: what's your definition of an amulet ?
asciilifeform: a device of sympathetic magic ?

asciilifeform: having more or less same status as, e.g., #8=======>
mircea_popescu: once they become necessary and "necessarily effectual", it gets iffy
mircea_popescu: in any case - lunacy is not here contemplated. lunacy is actually in practice a very high bar of achievement. you're just weird, which is boringly common, especially in accomplished folks.
asciilifeform: i can only aspire to the high bar.
mircea_popescu: (technically speaking, the mp license is actually an anti-amulet, in the sense that it makes life impossible for a certain sort of lunatic. inasmuch as its effectiveness is not predicated on metaphysical but on quite physical considerations, it's just a virus.)
asciilifeform: but is this property not itself amuletronic ?
asciilifeform: it cannot all by itself 'make life impossible' for anyone.
mircea_popescu: no, but we do know how idiots think.
asciilifeform: and the old amulet was also calibrated for a certain kind of idiot
asciilifeform: whose thought processes were reasonably well known
mircea_popescu: mind, selling amulets is a trade like any other trade. wearing them is what was being discussed.
asciilifeform: anyway i don't do amulets, much as mircea_popescu is convinced of this. i ~might~ entertain laughably inaccurate hypothesis about whatevers, when i have no access (unlike to the inside of a computer) to the priors.
mircea_popescu: that's not the proper approach there. consider that you'd "entertain laughably innacurate hypothesis" about a) things that really make no difference to you ; b) with which you have absolutely no experience and c) that have exactly nothing in common with a hypothesis and everything in common with an article of faith.
asciilifeform: who is to say what makes a difference to me.
mircea_popescu: you could trivially test this swift hypothesis of yours you know - wire a grand to the next nigerian to visit your inbox then write to your bank to reverse it.
asciilifeform: ~i~ don't get to reverse it !
asciilifeform: never said this.
mircea_popescu: oh i see.
asciilifeform: the system's owner gets to.
asciilifeform: which is neither me nor the other schmuck.
mircea_popescu: is he the elite ?
asciilifeform: whoever he answers to, is sorta definitionally elite, no?
mircea_popescu: ex post facto.
mircea_popescu: it's a trope of fiction, all this.
mircea_popescu: which whatever, everyone needs a hobby.
asciilifeform: care to possibly give a brief picture of the reality ?
asciilifeform: or what, 'your puny brain cannot digest it ' ?
mircea_popescu: the reality of what ?
asciilifeform: of swift.
mircea_popescu: why not read the documentation ?
mircea_popescu: it's remarkably open and well documented for a fiat banking thing.
asciilifeform: why not read to learn which hdd firmwares are buggered ?
mircea_popescu: it's a protocol you know.
asciilifeform: or what, swift operators swore to vishnu to tell the truth and only the complete truth ?
asciilifeform: but yes, i will actually go and read.
mircea_popescu: so there's a meta-documentation that's secret and a faux documentation that's published ?
asciilifeform bbl.
mircea_popescu: same could be said about fucking css.
mircea_popescu: (actually, amusingly enough, swift docs date from just about the era ada was fashionable. there was such a time - just like that time in the 90s when everyone was eager to implement linux-y things and you didn't really have to sell it at all, whole cities just switched for no reason)
mircea_popescu: << epic line.

mircea_popescu: i suppose in another decade there won't be a way to buy soap.
mod6: have to make our own.
mod6: al la fight club.
mircea_popescu: it's this fashion thing, i guess every third unemployed/able chick is making artisanal soap these days.
mircea_popescu: in a sense i can see it, must be satisfying to actually MAKE something in postsociety.
mircea_popescu: but you really have to be retarded to imagine a ploy to claim industrial production is bad isn't obviously transparent and deeply ineffectual.

mircea_popescu: there's a graph, it doesn't touch 1bn.
mircea_popescu: i suppose the site's totally borked, huh.
granny: hmm, yes, that graph is totally wrong
mircea_popescu: either totally wrong or totally right or w/e. i guess mods will see to it.
mircea_popescu: if derpy site is going to print numbers, might as well print the same ones. one'd think.
granny: Well, it's over a billion at coinmarketcap, so I know the number's I'd trust there.
