asciilifeform: chet was from the era when people were people.
asciilifeform: y'know, when chix flew biplanes over german lines and dropped frags

mircea_popescu: was funny, too, with all the airports and shit. "is that a screwdriver ?" "yeah" "you can't take screwdrivers on the airplane!" "no, it's ok, see, it has fittable heads" "ah... uh... i see. well it's ok then."
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> asciilifeform but it IS cluelessness. << AHA, and it transforms it to more finessed cluelessness with actual education and practice. "Is this fasterner best attacked with ratchet, breaker bar, or impact gun"
mircea_popescu: anyway, i don't score cluelessness for stupidity. it's structured and self defending/perpetuating cluelessness that triggers.
mircea_popescu: most of the girls had no idea eg, thermodynamics puts strict limits and firm relations between movement and energy, including as it pertains to their eating. or that all things that exist can be made and are in fact made. or how to evaluate anything, a distance, a cost, a length or a volume. or so on.
mircea_popescu: they come out of it.
BingoBoingo scores it as indicator of environmental defect
mircea_popescu: just had lulz on a walk with girl yest, in that we saw a larger than common cement mixer on a construction site, and i said it's they're normally like a coupla galon's worth, and she agreed, and then she guessed the present one at 30 and i said it's like 120 yeah and she was totally blown out, no way it's 120 galons ? no, liters. this girl, two years ago, misjudged the volume of a hangar she was physically present in by three
mircea_popescu: degrees of magnitude ; and now found a 4x factor inconceivably off for an item half mile in the distance.

BingoBoingo suspects there's less physical pathology in the ex-dumb

BingoBoingo just likes dropping "conversion therapy works" bomb in log for the point that it is toxic to socialists
mircea_popescu: a is it ?
BingoBoingo: It doesn't feed Inca is one point where it is toxic, but the other point I observe is people when recovering appear to become more ideologically sane as part of transformation.

mircea_popescu: for instance : if i were solving this for military purposes i would have the machine list all targets it can visit such that it can still reach one landing spot, and then choose one to visit RANDOMLY. this offers some very strong guarantees : a) each machine will touch one target ; b) the algo can be recursed at ANY point (such as power failure) ; c) if you make a fleet of them you get coverage at no communication expense.
mircea_popescu: i suppose this being what you meant by moving parts.
mircea_popescu: undiscovered externalities moar like it.
phf: well, your basic algorithm is nearest neighbor, but then you can assign random weights to sites of interest, to ensure that different machines prioritize different walks (even if they get dropped from same location)
mircea_popescu: fwiw balloon-glider is a solution to this problem in the sense straight razor and barber's bowl is a solution to flebotomy. it does work, as it did long ago, but it does also kinda ignore the more recent past.
mircea_popescu: if you are destroying the targets the solution is rocket engine, which by now are cheap and easy to make. if you are merely diddling the target the solution is flying lawnmower. (although if you only want to do it monentarily, such as picture taking as opposed to eg van ecking the solution really is satellite).

andreicon: :)) who coined that term?
mircea_popescu: just as the black worker on the plantation thought he is a slave because god made him stupid ; just so the redditard of today thinks he has easy equal access to everything.
mircea_popescu: phf word.

andreicon: i mean sha256 and ripemd160 were already available, just hacked into doing something else
mircea_popescu: andreicon yet consider : when the pantsuited hilarity was aiming to somehow establish herself as actually real and existent as opposed to merely imaginary fiction (in the face of trump's onslaught) her argument was ... "i was in the situation room!!!". she was saying, basically, that while she formally appears a redditard like any other, let them not forget that nevertheless she has... priviledged access to... special technol
mircea_popescu: that was the whole thing. that's all she had to communicate, when all is said and done.
mircea_popescu: so what are you talking about ?
andreicon: then some russki said she runs win2003 on her exchange server and from there it all went to shit
mircea_popescu: the time when people with better access to superior technologies ruined her inept shit precedes this event.
mircea_popescu: (ie yes, the boneheaded fucktard is also incapable of learning from her own experience, but whatever, it's what the us politruk class is all about)
andreicon: so she thought she had the same shit everyone else had
andreicon: she couldn't possibly lose
andreicon: but then it turns out there's hidden tech, some stuff you never knew existed
andreicon: i'm not willing to be a public face for that
andreicon: yea, i'm a skiddie

mircea_popescu: if your definition includes an or it is not a definition.
andreicon: okay, i don't know the formal definition
mircea_popescu: look here : in physics (which is a practical matter), you can have such a thing as a set with a measure and yet thereby not obtain an ordering. in mathematics, your ring (set + idempotent/unit items) also thereby has an ordering.
mircea_popescu: this is your error here : when you say "they still have years of catching up to do" you imagine a theoretical construct that has no bearing to reality. just because you're far away doesn't mean you're far ahead. as it happens, you aren't, western women will survive much better than western men.
mircea_popescu: as per tradition.

erlehmann: bonus: only affected program is systemd
trinque: erlehmann: the logs would benefit greatly from a proper writeup of these, so the next time someone goes "hurr durr $shitlang" the blog post can be linked
