asciilifeform: in other lulz, https://blog.exodusintel.com/2017/07/26/broadpwn >> 'Broadpwn is a fully remote attack against Broadcom’s BCM43xx family of WiFi chipsets, which allows for code execution on the main application processor in both Android and iOS.'
asciilifeform: 'During the early 2000s, self-propagating malware – or “worms” – were common. But the advent of DEP and ASLR largely killed off remote exploitation, and Conficker (2008) will be remembered as the last self-propagating network worm. We will revive this tradition by turning Broadpwn into the first WiFi worm for mobile devices, and the first public network worm in eight years.' supposedly.
asciilifeform: comes with enough code snippet to, i suspect, reproduce, if there is something to reproduce.
asciilifeform: they do not, for some reason, display on archive.is, so here is full txt, http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/c0qo5/?raw=true
mircea_popescu: not bad, a mobile phone recall. saved the auto industry from bankruptcy for almost a decade.
mircea_popescu: i suppose, by that guiderline, next there's going to be a phone emissions standards agency ?
asciilifeform: 'Running an Alfa wireless adapter on monitor mode for about an hour in a crowded urban area, we’ve sniffed hundreds of SSID names in Probe Request packets. Of these, approximately 70% were using a Broadcom WiFi chip ...'
mircea_popescu: sounds probable.
asciilifeform: most newer laptop etc also.
asciilifeform: and unsurprisingly 0 'mainstream' noose re subj
asciilifeform: ( last i saw )
asciilifeform: the original piece is 4+ d. old
mircea_popescu: this is not unlike observing "no opera composed on the subject".
asciilifeform: 'we'll close our eyes and it will go away' is the idea, i suspect
mircea_popescu: first off operas have their own range of topics ; second off people writing them died long ago ; and third off who cares.
asciilifeform: 'Samsung’s Shannon modems are prevalent in most of the newer Samsungs; Intel’s Infineon chips have taken over Qualcomm as the baseband for iPhone 7 and above; and MediaTek’s chips are a popular choice for lower cost Androids. And to top it off, Qualcomm is still dominant in higher end non-Samsung Androids.' << suggests a burn

mircea_popescu: last item in the series prolly worth reading, i dun wanna try and put in a sentence what i dun like about the guy.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform quite.
asciilifeform read all of the parts
mircea_popescu: anyway, it's pretty miserable. i can readily see why liber which is it ?
mircea_popescu: liber-rothbards whatever are so poorly received by the anglo left. they prolly tried to read rothbard and fell over.
mircea_popescu: in fact, the canon is shockingly dumb. there's that blavatsky-wannabe with her utterly unreadable 600 pages atlas thing. there's rothbard, which is about as terrible as trying to read http://www.mcgonagall-online.org.uk/works
asciilifeform: lol rand
mircea_popescu: even scientology has better literature.
asciilifeform one time aficionado, read most (all?) of rand
asciilifeform: then barfed
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: they're about on par
mircea_popescu: but on literary grounds! wtf! she CANT WRITE.
asciilifeform: but rand also has these chixy/'romance' elements that appeal to chix
mircea_popescu: "battlestar galactica" is actually more accomplished, and this coming from a man who actually despises tolkien, let alone rando pulper.
asciilifeform: with one aryan uberman outcockwidthing the next, then the next, etc
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform im not so sure this appeals to chix.
asciilifeform: 'atlas' even has a tmsr-like item in it
asciilifeform: complete with the morally necessary pirate
mircea_popescu: they all have "tmsr-like" items in them!
mircea_popescu: tell you what : jules verne has a radio-like item in it, doesn't make it good writing.
mircea_popescu: clarke fucking invented satellites, he still writes like a sophomore.
asciilifeform: in more interesting olds, http://j-core.org << super-h, a VERY nice arch, slowly comes back to life
asciilifeform: it is no accident that the gcc wreckers are now removing support for it
mircea_popescu: what's so nice about it ?
asciilifeform: a number of things
mircea_popescu: ah, open processor huh.
asciilifeform: yes, but not quite so bare-bones as, e.g., schoolbook mips
asciilifeform: (has, e.g., pipeline, and fpu )
asciilifeform: i've historically been a fan of superh
mircea_popescu: risc, sadly.
asciilifeform: has fixed-length instrs, for instance
asciilifeform: it's really a risc 'in name only', has couple of 100 instr
asciilifeform: the interesting bit is that linked d00dz stuffed it in 60% of cheap xilinx (lx9, i have a pile of'em)
asciilifeform: betcha with some actual sweat, one could get it smaller.
mircea_popescu: i dunno, japanese item from the glory days.
asciilifeform: for completeness, i will point out that the original is apparently STILL in production, goes for about 20bux usd in qty
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: smaller fpga, i mean
asciilifeform: ( an lx9 is also about 20bux )
mircea_popescu: yes yes, the dreamcast chip.
mircea_popescu: i am now remembering this.
asciilifeform: the sh2, which is still massively made, beats the mips micros available on open market in ability to run from external rom
asciilifeform: which is something i've searched far and wide for
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: saturn
asciilifeform: dreamcast had the 64bit variant
mircea_popescu: pretty sure it was in teh dreamcast.
asciilifeform: (sadly out of print, afaik)
asciilifeform: the superh was massaged to death by the orig authors, who licensed the patent (expired last yr) to number of firms, for megabux
asciilifeform: it was a popular chip, in high end sound equipment, early wince horrors, various appliances
asciilifeform: ~very~ respectable performance. (esp per watt)
asciilifeform: 'the vanilla 4.7 kernel should support this board, as should Rich Felker's musl-libc toolchain.' << bonus
mircea_popescu: o hey.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform btw, the ~only actually interesting point the rothbard expedition yielded hasn't much at all to do with rothbard, of course. http://trilema.com/2017/the-ethics-of-liberty-by-murray-n-rothbard-adnotated-part-i-natural-law-and-reason/#footnote_3_73699
mircea_popescu: have you been misrepresented ?
asciilifeform: dun think so
asciilifeform: it's a valid observation
asciilifeform: and in fact the contradiction rears its head in every item asciilifeform works on
asciilifeform: 'must have sufficients, but cannot have infinites'
mircea_popescu: an evidently pregnant matter.
asciilifeform: it's the razor blade ffa walks on
asciilifeform: imho the lesson thus far has been 'the only attainable thing that gives sufficients without attempting infinities, is the expectation-adjuster'
mircea_popescu: actually, the lordship also has.
asciilifeform: even the 'ffaishness' of ffa has certain natural limits. gcd, for instance, is not constanttimeable
asciilifeform: by the nature of the op
mircea_popescu: hence the constant "you can either make it foolproof ; or else make it lordship only". which is how bots work etc.
asciilifeform: ( fortunately it is not used in rsa other than in primality test during key gen. but is quite irritating a fact )
asciilifeform: previous 'expectation-adjusters' include : v
asciilifeform: i suspect that subsequent ones, will have similar flavour
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> liber-rothbards whatever are so poorly received by the anglo left. they prolly tried to read rothbard and fell over. << AHA, this IS the anglophone problem. Not much in the language that isn't worse than Rothbard. English gives you Twain, William James, and Shakespeare. Everthing else is translated into the language.
mircea_popescu: he could FUCKING LEARN A LANGUAGE you know.
mircea_popescu: it's not like it kills people.
mircea_popescu: i don't fucking understand this nonsense. they know smoking kills, and still smoke. this -- i can see. they know alcohol is bad for you, yet still drink. so do i. they are aware television ruins your eyesight, and still watch it. i don't, but surely not for that reason.
mircea_popescu: but then they guard themselves against learning a new tongue like it's the fucking plague.
mircea_popescu: nobody yet has died of learning a foreign language! it's the most benign activity conceivable.
mircea_popescu: that aside, there's also dunne, and fucking huxley. who, while not some sort of proustian pinnacle of english, AT LEAST CAN FUCKING HOLD HIS OWN.
BingoBoingo: Shhhhhhh, I thought we were shitting on language
mircea_popescu: this is what i want. we gotta produce some literature at the lest on the level of huxley, or else liberty will forever be oppressed by the komodo dragon breath of rand and rothbard and whatnot talented poets of the silver tay.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and esp since most of these people still went to school in an environment where you either learned BOTH latin and greek or else flunked.

asciilifeform: phf, mircea_popescu : this is not a synthesis!!! it is an extraction
asciilifeform: so certainly not 'from household material' lol
asciilifeform: needs rare vegetable matter
mircea_popescu: you mean to tell me these are different ?
mircea_popescu: but i didn't use sodium bicarbonate.
phf: i actually don't know if it's synthesis or an extraction because didn't read the whole thing, but i thought that there's a synthesis step further in
mircea_popescu: a synthesis step ?
mircea_popescu: anyway. afaik dmt synthesis goes tryptophan -> tryptamine -> dimethyltryptamine.
phf: well, in the first step you're not extracting dmt, you're getting some intermediary that you then run synthesis with
mircea_popescu: if you're going to go the plant route can just as well eat the damned things. there's thousands of different plants that naturally store it.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: afaik none 'naturally store' anything near an active dose
mircea_popescu: of course they do.
mircea_popescu: the whole religious practice of the amason basin is based on this.
asciilifeform: 'ayahuasca' ?
mircea_popescu: for instance. and some mimosa and psychotria and so on
asciilifeform: iirc it was not properly documented, what active ingredient was, and where it grows.
phf: well, i'm wrong they use mimosa hostilis which contains 1.5% dmt (and yes same shit that they use to cook ayahuasca)
asciilifeform evidently out of date on subj
mircea_popescu: phf afaik it was m. tenouflora.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know, the date is 1950s. hungarian dood researched this extensively.
mircea_popescu: how the fuck do you think Daisies was made :D
mircea_popescu: anyway, the whole shtick with the "extraction" is because ingested dmt gets reduced metabolically, so one's stuck ingesting enough to overwhelm the monoamine oxidase pathway. but instead of doing all the dumb shit with shot glasses and eating formaldehyde and whatnot, one could just take lifril and be about the same place.
mircea_popescu: antidepressant, a sort of russki prozac let's say.
mircea_popescu: but otherwise reversible MA inhibitor.
asciilifeform: these tend to kill unprepared schucks

mircea_popescu: less toxic than whatever's in their "i can't recall what solvent i used" preparations.

mircea_popescu: eh, you can smuggle it just fine, have a doctor's recipe and a pharmacy receipt. nobody knows jack shit about anything, that's the fundamental principle of statehood.

mircea_popescu: possible. lessee
mircea_popescu: take quarter pill. its clearance is in the week-ish range. get yourself a pile of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mimosa_tenuiflora which grows wild pretty much everywhere, and start chewing leaves.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu personally tried this..?
mircea_popescu: no. nor does he intend to.
mircea_popescu: nor has he also personally tried cure for gonorhea.
asciilifeform: didn't think so

asciilifeform: ( anyhtings )
asciilifeform: i saw it before, assumed btc blackhole.
mircea_popescu: intel is a vague thing, constructs lists of truths. afaik did not actually order above item, no.
asciilifeform: afaik most 'online pharma' whatevers, are simple blackholes for coin.
mircea_popescu: about 50-50 i would say.
asciilifeform: ( you pay, 0 package, and they will say 'your customes stole it' )
mircea_popescu: certainly i'm not endorsing the rupharma.com biz, wtf.
asciilifeform: i dun endorse any of'em, afaik 0 in wot.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform we're not going to lose you to hay chewing now are we ?

BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> but otherwise reversible MA inhibitor. << AHA USia only has irreversible MAOIs, except selegiline which is for Micheal J Fox disease
mircea_popescu: they're cheap and readily available though, was my point.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what was behind 'because womentz' out of curiosity?
mircea_popescu: rather than go through all the dubiosity of "extraction" because you think some sit com was great, it is biologically cheaper to just eat the plant and inhibit ma.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform he didn't know why antihistaminics are behind the glass in the us. they are behind the glass because women specifically tend to both overtake them and are vulnerable to them.
mircea_popescu: it's not clear quite how much and why etc. but us is nothing if it's not flordia.
BingoBoingo: Yeah few things cheaper than Phenelzine
asciilifeform: last i was in a pharmacy, loratidine was sold behind no glass, buy by the bucket if you want.
asciilifeform: ( expensive, however. )
mircea_popescu: practice relaxes the organ.

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: subj is not an ephedrine
mircea_popescu: that also. tho phf's item of choice isn't, afaik, on that list.
asciilifeform: sorta the point, opens the sinus without being adrenergic
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Often packaged together "loratidine D" is loratadine + pseudoephedrine, behind counter
BingoBoingo: Pointing out the confusion comes from being lumped into class of "cold medicines"
BingoBoingo: Anyways the one class of drugs which is relatively safe mixed with MAOIs is... AMPHETAMINES!
phf: asciilifeform: desloratadine is a loratadine metabolite, it's not over the counter
asciilifeform: phf: what's the win from this vs original ?
BingoBoingo: desloratadine is a patent extender, so gotta raep the Obamacare piggy while they can
phf: asciilifeform: no idea, placebo presumably, original doesn't work for me
asciilifeform: and metabolite, will!?
asciilifeform: ( if this worked, 'drinking morarji-cola' would be a pharma-active practice )
mircea_popescu: without prejudice to extant practice : people who are willing to slowly suicide in the swamp will sometimes develop psycho-somatic reactions to the indignity. they tend to medicate them, through a trial-and-error approach, which is half bad luck and half placebo effect, instead of taking long hard look at why the fuck their eyes water every time they have to behold another instance of the same stable of idiots
mircea_popescu: and get the fuck out of dodge.
BingoBoingo: loratidine never tested better than placedo at approved dose, work only above approved dose, but then side effects...
mircea_popescu did not take nor personally intends to take EITHER the ayahuasca OR the cough drops. and for the same fucking reasons.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: as you know, 80 (90?) % of swamp inhabitants, 'medicated'
asciilifeform: for various.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> mircea_popescu: as you know, 80 (90?) % of swamp inhabitants, 'medicated' << For very good reason. Shifts blame from lizards to their diseases.
mircea_popescu: i mean specifically this "doctor doesn't understand my allergies and i have this one blanky that works" attitude. it's very common, and the point is : it is very common in a) intelligent people of a technical inclination b) working in shitistans.
mircea_popescu: the fact that blue collar / orcs do not get the same problems is a clear indication of their non-medical nature.
asciilifeform: it is not the case that they do not
asciilifeform: the 'blue collar' folx -- now very very medicated. as documented by tlp.
mircea_popescu: i've not seen the "system designer's allergy" in anyone but.
asciilifeform: moar psycho than allergy
mircea_popescu: no, moar "this place is shit" than anything.
asciilifeform: yes , speaking of choice of poison
asciilifeform: the blue collar folx do moar 'ups' and 'downs' than antihistamines
mircea_popescu: it's a horrid abuse of intelligence, to use it to dumb self to own body.

asciilifeform: the archive dun find
mircea_popescu: darn. i'd have liked to read naggum on this.
asciilifeform: it's in the buried usenet archives, in the bunkers!11
asciilifeform: but idea was roughly same as what causes 'alices'
asciilifeform: a sort of destructive introspection
phf: naggum who died from a mystery gut condition
mircea_popescu: ikr ?
asciilifeform: phf: afaik not mystery
mircea_popescu: he is recognizable expert on topic.
asciilifeform: and incidentally almost certainly died from the anti-inflammatories he self-medicated with
mircea_popescu: dude was so fucking smart he managed to not notice he had ulcer. possibly the most painful condition available.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that's his point.
asciilifeform: noticed. didn't care.
mod6: 'boiling the shadow of a pigeon starved to death' << heh
mircea_popescu: this naggum piece is an absolutely fine diagnosis of the whole "needs creation" usgistani "marketing" thing. "raise awareness" "educate the public", etc
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, the problem here is the reverse : "my eyes will jump out of my head if they have to read a single other page of this rothbard ; best i stop that and go build eye cages"
mircea_popescu: i can appreciate that the only way they even got this far, having read all those books they had to read to be able to discuss something interesting in science today, as opposed to 1700 ; and all the time doing definitionally boring shit in the lab (because it's NOT "i can't recall what the solvent was" it is therefore boring!) is by subduing the natural voice saying "fuck this shit, let's go roll in the grass under the apple
mircea_popescu: tree with the nude sluts".
mircea_popescu: NEVERTHELESS. the voice of nature is to be silenced in school, not forevermore. not in life.
mircea_popescu: at some point you're going to choke if you aspirate just one god damned single further corpuscle of calcium carbionate ; and you are going to strangle the next pubescent dicklet who imagines he invented novel problems and solutions through tracing the biological trace. THAT is when it's time to drop them all and go away.
trinque: reminds me of the thread re: whether intelligent folks can be said to be intelligent if they can't translate themselves to moron.
trinque: gotta also know how to operate the meat robot your brain's sitting in, which involves taking a shit regularly, etc
mircea_popescu: or at least have a plan! "i;m not taking a shit now because i will THEN, and i have in point of fact checked and the plan is sound"

asciilifeform: whereas i can very easily picture it.
BingoBoingo: Well, Norway is right next to hell
mircea_popescu: he couldn't, eg, have been a syrian geodesic engineer. or a lebanese partizan. or a central asian goat herd.
mircea_popescu: there was something in his blood preventing each and every possible alternative.
asciilifeform: iirc he tried being an american engineer
asciilifeform: and barfed
mircea_popescu: i taught briefly ; and went away. and was romanian and left. and so on and so forth, dozens of different "Beings". but this is just my blessing as mp ; poor unfortunate naggum has been so cursed, as to only have two options.
asciilifeform: ( he was there for ~7y and right up to bush-II election )
mircea_popescu: similarily, i have had women, of many kinds and types and speaking various languages and on and on. but not huxley. he, cursed, ONLY ONE! and if she was a dumb slut -- he, therefore, convicted.
mircea_popescu: wtf is this post-victorian romanticistic bullshit.
mircea_popescu: cock is so made to fit most holes.
asciilifeform: can debate forever who has what options. but the notion that everyone has every option, is batshit.
mircea_popescu: yet the notion that "only option" is MORE batshit.
asciilifeform: most folx are poor as church mice and extremely -- and thereby -- loss-averse
mircea_popescu: stupidity is not a legitimate "option limiter".
asciilifeform: aahahalol, 2 settings on the dial nao, ' mircea_popescu ' and ' stupidity '
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the loss adversity of the poor does not go well with an otherwise functional mind such as naggum displays.
asciilifeform: sure it does
mircea_popescu: how ?
asciilifeform: can be arbitrarily 'functional mind' and arbitrarily poor, when pantsuits rob you of even the notion that there is such a thing as not being robbed
mircea_popescu: you know, the idiot is not the liar, but the believer.
asciilifeform for instance does not expect to ever live to not be robbed
mircea_popescu: hey, i got robbed earlier, these tiny ants on my balcony ate a sliver of tuna.
mod6: if they can they must
asciilifeform: yeah now picture a 'planet of ants' where agriculture is a laughable idea because anything remotely concentrated gets devoured in an hour
mircea_popescu: but yes, you will not live to not be robbed, seeing how gut disinfection ~= death.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nevermind the theory. guy could have fucking hopped in a plan to ulaan baator and be raising his own goats within a fortnight.
asciilifeform: lulzily this is rather like what the socialists preach -- 'we are like your gut bacteria, there For Your Own Good, and it ain't robbery' neh
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, but the fact that they aren't what they preach doesn't mean the thing they preach being isn't there.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: life with goats in goatfuckistan is not -- to naggum, evidently, and just the same to asciilifeform -- life
asciilifeform: it's a type of slow death
mircea_popescu: except it isn't.
asciilifeform: to mircea_popescu .
asciilifeform: ( who, last i saw, was not yet herding goats either )
mircea_popescu: this is the point of all magic act : not to "disappear", but to replace. naggum's idiocy is in having bought the sleigh of hand, whereby "life not worth living" was switrched for life, AND VICE VERSA.
mircea_popescu: really, life with the goats not worth living ? says who the fuck ?
asciilifeform: wai no goats in mircea_popescu's house ?
asciilifeform: ( or are they new ? )
mircea_popescu: well, i had them in egypt. but obviously any finite house wiull not contain all infinities the mind can conjure up. no room.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu just as a very high quality of goats
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, I do not believe ~MY~ life would not be worth living because of the god damned goats, in presence or absence.
asciilifeform: it ain't the goats
mircea_popescu: and in the same vein my life is perfectly fine with or without anything.
mircea_popescu: because it's my life, not the processing of my wife and her children and my favourite tv shows and my parking lot and my red stapler. ffs.
asciilifeform: afaik mircea_popescu never once in entire life experienced anything like the garden variety lack of options of even a typical 1st world slave
mircea_popescu: well no, mp was never fucked in the head.
asciilifeform: even sans fishwife and fishchildren and fishjob -- ~0 options .

mircea_popescu: why not bus ?
asciilifeform: bus dun go on ocean?
mircea_popescu was never worried about the "parachute" "sikrit agents". the only ones who were ever dangerous were the bus riding sort.

mircea_popescu: looky here : it is very true that an african is going to perform worse than a caucasian. i have, like everyone, had ample opportunity to verify this fact, either through literature review over dead africans or work evaluation over live ones.
mircea_popescu: the REASON, however, is not that africans have shittier genes. i was able to verify their genes are just fine, with my dick. african genes make tall, pretty girls that fuck just as fine as white girls. and they even have better asses on average.
mircea_popescu: the reason africans unerperform is that african culture is idiotic. it is.
asciilifeform: this proves something?!
asciilifeform: re anything other than gurl meat ?!
mircea_popescu: watch girly that'd be a fine intellect believe "metaphysics" is dumbass pulp nonsense. why ? because her mom's a wizard don't you know, and her grandmother was a faith healer.
mircea_popescu: it's the culture ; not the genes.
mircea_popescu: now : africa was inhabited long before europe. and here we come upon the worrying fact of the matter : italians today are the dumbest shitheads conceivable, below the gypsies really. but... why ?
mircea_popescu: egyptians are entirely fucking stupid. yet they taught us to make maps ?
mircea_popescu: why was it china conquered by europe ? complex explanations about but how about the simple one
asciilifeform: which egyptians? taught whom
mircea_popescu: it was fucking older. and age stupefies.
asciilifeform: the old egyptians ain't here no moar
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform right. maybe they were invaded. but maybe they weren't ? maybe senescence is what turned the tall guys with slender noses into today's orcs.
asciilifeform: where was the mircea_popescu with the accumulated-recessives thing
asciilifeform: can't seem to turn it up in the logz
mircea_popescu: for instance. or for whatever other reason. but the point here is -- don't trust your culture to be a monotonously positive item. it's not.

mircea_popescu: hm. look at that. a TENTH of the population of chicago.
f1maze: charlie lee talking bitcoin litecoin on cnbc.. I just spit out my drink on my keyboard
f1maze: he even talked about dogecoin
mircea_popescu: which is cnbc ?
f1maze: some main stream news station
mircea_popescu: oh. i thought for some reason "crypto network" blabla.
asciilifeform: who the fuck is charlie lee
shinohai: !!gettrust coblee
deedbot: L1: 0, L2: -1 by 1 connections.
asciilifeform: some misc scum ?
f1maze: Yeah, apparently
asciilifeform: did antonoupolus or whoever was the designated talking muppet, slip in the bath?
shinohai: Sadly, no
mircea_popescu: f1maze look at that, cnbc has no show in top 10 ratings, ditched nielesen in protest. lol.
mircea_popescu: then again... check this shit out, us programming is dominated by "game of thrones", way the fuck ahead of disney and discovery channel. which, amusingly enough, are really competitors now.
mircea_popescu: and who is rachel maddow
f1maze: I think Justin Beiber's brother
mircea_popescu: this is the new tonight show ? really ?!
mircea_popescu: other than that, it's "wwe raw"
mircea_popescu: is that where they get the slightly aged strippers and do a sort of ... light daytime drama + staged "fights" ?
f1maze: Pretty sure wwe raw and the white house have their own drama... I remember seeing something recently of potus wrestling someone
mircea_popescu: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/smashing-glass-ceilings-the-women-of-wwe <<< "i can't believe they;'re not white latina chicks code!!!"
mircea_popescu: f1maze pity trump;s no andy kaufman. some female wrestling post that whole "i grab them by the pussy" fail-scandal would have worked ok for ratings i imagine.
f1maze: damn, that's true
phf: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-08-01#1691632 << i actually did that as a small child. i was trying to see if you can charge a battery by connecting it directly to the outlet :o
a111: Logged on 2017-08-01 01:41 asciilifeform: it's == the 'lemme stick the fork in the mains socket' 'creativity' discussed by dutch.
mircea_popescu: my parents were very careful to explain the ac/dc differences and so on rather early on.
phf: yeah, that makes sense. they used to do those "flowers & bees" conversations (which are apparently now discouraged in america, because some bees are actually flowers!), but nobody really does the basic mechanics of the environment conversations
asciilifeform: lol my folx did
mircea_popescu: i was a very dangerous child ; pretty much the only defense was making sense.
asciilifeform: aha same
asciilifeform: we made gunpowder etc
mircea_popescu: i believe it's teh correct approach.
phf: asciilifeform senior plotting the downfall of soviet union in his garage, aha, runs in the family
mircea_popescu: of course the downside is you end up with these kids who have no problem growing into slavekeeping adults etc.
asciilifeform: ( asciilifeform's brother also made various nice things, trotyl, tetryl, etc. but asciilifeform never graduated to this, we left for shitlandia prior )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform flash paper ?
asciilifeform: aha, various
mircea_popescu: flash paper totally worth it.
mircea_popescu: (aka guncotton, ie the item that wasn't there on the "hospital" ship germans sunk)
mircea_popescu: it is, after all, rothbardian human nature for there to be no guncotton on the hospital ship which germans sink.
mircea_popescu: https://www.odt.co.nz/opinion/100-years-ago/germany-sinking-hospital-ships << typical lulz. shannonizer engine entirely unchanged in a century.
asciilifeform: archive.is/GK1wmSU << unsurprisingly eggog
mircea_popescu: too long neh
asciilifeform: hm yea
mircea_popescu: funny, incidentally, how much of non-tmsr irc consists of join/part spam. apparently 80% or os.
asciilifeform: i suspect 99+
f1maze: mpex.ws lol
f1maze: if I'm terrible at trading, Eulora probably isnt the game for me, right? lol
mircea_popescu: f1maze plenty of people play without trading.
mircea_popescu: not really clear what type it's for / not for so far. outside of really not being for the innumerate.
f1maze: Great, will give it a try
f1maze: well, I'm glad I came across that
f1maze: scammers everywhere

f1maze: figured I'd try anyways
mod6: related, "a bankrupt gang of pompous horse's asses" : http://trilema.com/2017/again-with-the-money-laundering-bullshit/
mircea_popescu: f1maze it tells you how well you know someone.
mircea_popescu: !!gettrust mod6
deedbot: L1: 5, L2: 46 by 26 connections.
mircea_popescu: ie, there's 26 other people could vouch for him if i need them to.
f1maze: How does everyone know eachother so well?
mircea_popescu: many years.
mircea_popescu: and in otehr news, did we do aus dem leben der marionetten ? great film.
f1maze: mod6: even more related I have a meeting with my new tax accountant next week because I was an idiot and brought cold storage online -- did a couple big trades on GDAX (lost big too) a couple months ago. Now I'm nervous
mircea_popescu: mod6 yeah but you know, 2011.
mod6: ah, right. all .ro. i used to just translate the stuff. however, it was mentioned in the logs, since im not sure what exactly is being lost in such translations.
mircea_popescu: i was reading the ro review and it came out "better rewrite than translate".
mircea_popescu: this happens a lot sadly.
mod6: I wish I could learn a lang in six weeks.
mircea_popescu: only works after the 12th.
mod6: I suppose for me, the trouble with my german and spanish is usage. i never get to use it, so I tend to lose it :<
mircea_popescu: it's like a volume discount package.
mod6: I learned german first, and that took me about 6mos to a year when i was 11 or 12. then when i was ~18 i learned spanish in like... well pretty quick, 2-3 mos. its easy.
mod6: but again, i never get to use it.
mircea_popescu: espanisho no is difficulto.
mod6: verb conjugation is easy
mod6: german felt like it was way harder.
mircea_popescu: anyway, portuguese and spanish are the lulziest in this vein. at some party i chatted with this girl for a little, and eventually i asked her why does she have such a thick accent ? "because i'm speaking portuguese".
mod6: yeah, they are pretty close huh
mircea_popescu: i was buzzed enough to not have noticed, but i was talking spanish at her and she was talking portuguese back at me
mod6: lol. nice.
mod6: immersion is definately a good way to learn
mircea_popescu: i trust no other.
mircea_popescu: precisely because as you say, then you lose it.
mod6: i've been trying to pick up some russian just from all the damn unicode pasted in here.
mod6: at least, character to english letter combo transations.
mircea_popescu: russian is easy. Xулы?! Нихуя! Нехуй расхуяривать ! Hахуячено нехуево! Похуйярили! is really all you need.
mircea_popescu: holy shit im the only source for this on the internets ?
phf: this version is not bad either "- Хуяссе. Охуели? Нахуя дохуя хуйни нахуярили? Розхуяривайте нахуй. - Нихуя, хули. Захуярено нехуево, нахуя расхуяривать?"
mircea_popescu: mod6 the idea being that the russian grammar is so descriptive, an vocabulary isn't really needed. you can express yourself on the strength of grammatical structure and arbitrarily chosen verb + noun.
mod6: heheh, interesting
mod6: I noticed, four different words for 'fucking': ????? ????? ????? ?????????
mod6: bah, irssi fail
mircea_popescu: it's all dicks, huy. just you know, dis-dick-entangle and un-dick-bother and whatnot.
mod6: \u041d\u0430\u0445\u0443\u044f \u0434\u043e\u0445\u0443\u044f \u0445\u0443\u0439\u043d\u0438 \u043d\u0430\u0445\u0443\u044f\u0440\u0438\u043b\u0438
mircea_popescu: actually proper english structuring of mat would be a fine exercise for learning either. though more in the phd level of things.
mod6: my apologies. apparently my thing only does ascii.
mircea_popescu: phf at any rate i have proof! of some cursory russian interest even before meeting alf!
phf: the translation could be "what the hell. you guys lost it? why did you build so much stuff? break it down no matter what. - no way, why? it's not such a bad work, why break it down?"
mircea_popescu: phf no but i mean the FORMAL translation.
phf: err, i started translating before that sentence about "actually proper english..." etc.
mod6: I tell people all the time here that people not even from here speak/write better english than we do.
mircea_popescu: "what the dick, are you dicked ? why the dickendicking! disdick the dick! dicks dick! dicker dick, why dick with it ?"
mod6: It's crazy. I'm guilty of this as well. My spelling is horrid.
phf: i'm not even sure how i would approach above sentence if i was trying to fully relay the nuance and the ambiguity
mircea_popescu: phf and not using any word ROOT that's not you know, dick.
mod6: /topic what the dick, are you dicked ? why the dickendicking! disdick the dick! dicks dick! dicker dick, why dick with it ?
mod6: dicker dick, why dick with it? dick.
mircea_popescu: i think "dick" makes, phonetically, a better huy than cock or anything else. has a nice ring to it.
mod6: it kinda rolls off easier 'eh
phf: dick dick dick dick dick dick dick - how many dicks was that? - alot
mircea_popescu: course it makes anyone attempting to use it orally sound like a pail full of bearing balls, but hey.
mod6: phf: lol
mircea_popescu: reservoir dogs was like teh weakest of the lot.
mod6: you didn't like?!
mircea_popescu: i liked, sure. but the others seemed better.
mircea_popescu: even the explanation of what madonna's "like a virgin" means seemed outta place.
mod6: Harvey Keitel was great in that
mircea_popescu: true. possibly his best role.
