mircea_popescu: that said, pretty great article.
Framedragger: already sent to some 'trump is evil' friends
mircea_popescu: i'm pretty impressed at how well it goes with
mircea_popescu: almost as if we shared talking points on a napkin. which we haven't, but there it is. the iyi/jews in question'd be excused if they thought "massive right wing conspiracy", because hey.
mircea_popescu: HOW ELSE could you POSSIBLY get such coherence!!1
mircea_popescu: and since taleb's twitter is full of "simpson's paradox", let's add it to the record. it is universally the case that low birth weight is a predictor of infant mortality. this has been observed across centuries and across cultures/geographies. even if the exact value that contitutes "low birth weight" varies, the effects of the classification are ubiquitous.
mircea_popescu: once people become interested in smoking, it was observed that smoking mothers' babies of normal weight fare no better or worse than the general population ; whereas smoking mothers' babies of low weigh fare ~significantly~ better than the general population (of low birth weight babies).
mircea_popescu: on the basis of this much statistics, one could conclude (wrongly) that smoking in the mother is protective for the neonate.
mircea_popescu: however, ignoring the distinction, one can also make the observation that children born to smoking mothers fare significantly worse than the general population.
mircea_popescu: the reason for this apparent paradox ("how can kids do ok in A and better in B yet still do worse in A+B ?!) is that smoking CAUSES low birth weight ; but there are also other causes of low birth weight which also have a much more severe impact on life/survival expectancy than smoking.
mircea_popescu: because low weight babies have much poorer prospects than normal babies, and because smoking mothers cause a significant migration of their babies from normal to low weight, they "drown out" the other causes, getting apparent "better" prognosis (hey, the kid's not afflicted by trisomy with a 90% death before puberty prognosis ; but merely by smoking mom, with a 1% death before puberty prognosis)
mircea_popescu: and as taleb correctly points out, the jews' misunderstanding of this fundamental point is what drives a lot of their inept policy. such as you know, "how to make ghetos better ? BANKRUPT MIDDLE CLASS WHITE PEOPLE!!! then they'll move in the gheto and smoking mothers are protective for the baby!"
mircea_popescu: also as taleb correctly points out, this example is just a very good example, but not the whole story. what it exemplifies is the ineptitude of a class of people, whom we call jews, and whom we wish to see in camps. these people understand some - enough to be harmful - but not enough, so as to be useful. they are worse than stupid, because of this familiarity with first order but incapacity for higher order reasoning.
asciilifeform: << why not the parsimonious hypothesis -- they do it for the easy moneyz, bankrupt the idiot 'goys', not as if they were people etc

BANKRUPT MIDDLE CLASS WHITE PEOPLE!!! then they'll move in the gheto and smoking mothers are protective for the baby!"
asciilifeform: why does a flea drink blood.
mircea_popescu: i think parsimonious hypothesis here is they stupid
asciilifeform: flea ain't esp. clever either. but he knows how to flea.
mircea_popescu: note that it's not "why does flea drink blood", it's "why does mosquito female eschew nectar diet which WOULD allow it to deliver eggs that are viable ; and instead risk its life trying to suck blood out of people, which results in 100% mortality in plenty of cases".
mircea_popescu: and the conclusion "because it's fucking dumb" is perfectly reasonable.
mircea_popescu: that its mechanisms "think" bloodsucking pays has no bearings whatsoever on the reality of the matter. as it happens - it doesn't pay.
asciilifeform: spam also dun pay
mircea_popescu: and mosquitoes are very good exemplars for jews in this discussion - it has been my long held view they must be exterminated, as a species, permanently, as a minimal requirement of calling the human species civilised. and they ARE being exterminated. we will die in a world with no mosquitoes.
asciilifeform: yet it lives.
mircea_popescu: it dun live like it used to, alfie.
asciilifeform: maybe after this hellhole i live in is finally thermonuked
mircea_popescu: if it takes glassing washington, i'm in line to press the button.
asciilifeform: re the smoke babies, there was another well-known instance of the effect -- the incident with the steel helmet of ww1 britain
mircea_popescu: it's ubiquitous, really. kind-of why "segmentation" is so beloved by the garglers of my week-old cum (who prefer to call themselves "web analytics experts").
asciilifeform: ( their introduction led to massive apparent increase in brain injury. which was really reduction in concussion deaths... )
jhvh1: shinohai: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: amateur statisticians (such as i dunno, horse bettors, fantasy league players etc) constantly run into this problem where an entity outperforms another two years running but not the two years together.
mircea_popescu: it's really not that far removed from human experience as to excuse ignorance. except of course the idle are idle, not as a label but as a thing, and so never encountered anything in their life.
mircea_popescu: i'm satisfied by now they're actually bereft of language/thinking skills, so they'll simply carry on being jews until we gut them.
mircea_popescu: (in the case of the global warming scam - the whole moneygrubbing angle is particularly defensible. sure, the jews themselves may be stupid. but the people who benefit from this particular fraud aren't generally.)
phf: huh, there's a protest outside my window
phf: literally all the usual suspects
shinohai: Pour boiling oil on them phf
Framedragger: 'GO TO WORK'
phf: well, it's 50 people, but, there's at least two police cars on each intersection coming up and a helicopter
phf: specifically i can count 8 cop cars just oustide my window, 2 umarked cars with blinkers, sirens from elsewhere, an EMS car in the distance, and a helicopter somewhere very nearby
phf: there's some irony in the current chant being "no more hate"
asciilifeform: Framedragger: they ~are~ at 'work', herr soros is payin'
asciilifeform: (though apparently only herders are paid, i showed up to one of these, 0 pay was offered)
mircea_popescu: so just about more cops than "protesters"

Framedragger: curious: when looking at dns round robin, i found out that some nameservers - of those who do round robin, i.e. permuting list of say dns A records - sometimes do not shuffle them around, if dig'd in quick succession.
Framedragger: can this be used to approximate the frequency of dns requests to that nameserver? :p
Framedragger: the working assumption would be that if necessary does permute, it will necessarily set a new order for each request to follow. dangerous assumption, sure.
trinque: sounds like it calls for reading some DNS server code.
Framedragger: and here i thought i could exploit other people's knowledge :p
BingoBoingo: << Farmers having some fertilizer run off bad. Nutcases intentionally dumping fertilizer into the ocean good.
Framedragger: yes indeed..

mircea_popescu: by and large extant dns is a large pile of dried crap
asciilifeform: it needs only two things, petrol, and match.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: oh you can't even imagine how many 'additional' data fields domain needs to be actually usable by current dns clients. everything from start of authority to multiple TTLs etc. and that's the saner part of things...
Framedragger: trinque: thank you! will check.
trinque: bring your gas mask
Framedragger: yeah....
mircea_popescu: why does everyone just assume i don't know what i'm talking about. just because i sound like a clueless grandfather doesn't mean i am one omygerd.
Framedragger: array resizing and network code all in one place. no wonder buffer exploitation bugs aplenty
BingoBoingo: How sure are you that you aren't a grandfather, at least biologically...
Framedragger: BingoBoingo exactly
BingoBoingo guesses about 70-80% confident

mircea_popescu has ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS had young women introduced by old friends with the equivalent of "and this is my daughter. she's old enough now."
Framedragger: (..and of course bind has at least one "basically completely undocumented" config option, "order random_1", which modifies the round robin process, or the eventual reply. "didn't you get the memo, peter?")
BingoBoingo: But seriously, the butthurt "Y u no interested in 90 year old women!"

Framedragger: mircea_popescu: i'm curious, why don't you do ? or would that link the two explicitly and hence would not be favourable?
mircea_popescu: looks altogether more likely it's never actually getting conquered. if they last out the 70 days that's that for "peacekeeping" bs there.

ben_vulpes: classic, yes
ben_vulpes: i'm probably not going to build outbound
asciilifeform: i dun recall it ever having outbound.
asciilifeform: (why??!)
ben_vulpes: apparently not, classic misrecollection
ben_vulpes: why what? why not build outbound? why did mailinator not?
asciilifeform: so that all-comers send spam ?!
ben_vulpes: no, /'why' what/?
asciilifeform: it was an anyone-can-use gadget. so no outbound, or anyone could spam with it.
ben_vulpes: ah i see.
asciilifeform: whole appeal was 'no making account' etc.
ben_vulpes: yes yes
asciilifeform: the more interesting detail is that eventually it became ~useless, the sort of derps who demand 'email confirm' started blacklisting @mailinator addrs.
asciilifeform: they then offered payware 'secret domain' addrs, but i have nfi how well this worked, because it defeated THE WHOLE FUCKING POINT , with money-chargin', account-makin', etc.

mod6: "awwwwe"
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: solid riddle, "why can a fan not produce supersonic choked flow"
ben_vulpes: "given a large enough fan, and small enough nozzle throat..."
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: what do you suppose produces it in jet engine ?
ben_vulpes: in jet engines, the nozzles release combustion gases and expand them through a turbine to drive the fan shaft
ben_vulpes: there is also the upstream compressor driven off the same shaft but a) that's a compressor not a fan and b) that compressed gas is reacted with hydrocarbons to throw off oodles of gas cfm
ben_vulpes: to achieve the same effect with fans you'd need to dissipate at least the same amount of energy through the fan motors as you'd liberate from the fuel, no?
