mircea_popescu: , you're moving on".
mircea_popescu: and no, there's nothing wrong with saying "universally, except for the morons". car tanks are universally filled with gasoline (except for the morons -- such as those who try straight toluene, or those al schwartz speaks of, or etcetera -- there's no "consensus" escape from reality, and so in plenty of cases there's no difference between divergence and idiocy)
mircea_popescu: why not straight paracetamol.
asciilifeform: trotyl. why settle for small change.
mircea_popescu: anyway, speaking of which, isn't it a wonder all the "secret services assassinations" etc don't involve a simple "replace shower gel with nitrobenzene" ? evidently they can get hotel maids to perjure themselves in the most ridoinculous way possible, why not something incomparably safer ? not like the usual fucktards would ever give up the "conference" life

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the irritating problem is that while the two characters are fundamentally disimilar, nevertheless there's superficial similarities that rankle. both use a language to communicate what appear to be thoughts, and both can emulate formal logic in their own wetware to reliably come to the same true/false values
asciilifeform: rright, but for one, conclusion is 'wagner+cyanide', for other -- not
mircea_popescu: it seems, if one's inclined to generalize, that both sexes of a species are the same species, much like both recyclable and non-recyclable bottles are "bottle", in some sort of sense that doesn't make any sense in examination.
mircea_popescu: "up until that point where you take them to the recycling plant door and one is refused, they're entirely the same thing right, hold fluid"
mircea_popescu: so in the end, it becomes a dispute over present-value-evaluation. if you have two hats, one of which will break next time you use it, do you have two hats ?
mircea_popescu: "well... it's not broken now, is it" this is how people here repair my cars. "is it ok ?" "sure, nothing's broken RIGHT THIS INSTANT" "this is a german car, that's not what ok is."
diana_coman: asciilifeform, he had *his* option to be part of tmsr and she had *her* option to be part of it; he did not take it on account of "but I earn money now and I'm building mah future at this great company" ; she took hers discarding the earn money now and this great company
diana_coman: not all that dissimilar
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i suspect (tho cannot know) that douchebag understood that he was useless , and took refuge in religion.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, I don't know what that would be based on really or why you'd put it in
diana_coman: basically nicoleci then "understood" she was NOT useless somehow? I don't quite follow
asciilifeform: based on the log.
asciilifeform: he picked up various work and then demonstrated that his hands grew from arse
diana_coman: he demonstrated that he was illiterate and so on; pretty much what you complained re nicoleci atm; no proof that one can't learn
asciilifeform: nicoleci on other hand, is not useless, for fundamental physiological reasons; is at this very moment performing in mircea_popescu's circus
mircea_popescu: absolutely douchebag character was better informed than the girl ; and more competent.
a111: Logged on 2018-09-05 16:23 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the irritating problem is that while the two characters are fundamentally disimilar, nevertheless there's superficial similarities that rankle. both use a language to communicate what appear to be thoughts, and both can emulate formal logic in their own wetware to reliably come to the same true/false values
mircea_popescu: but he was also not going anywhere.
asciilifeform: was competent at wrong thing, iirc.
mircea_popescu: there's a bit in the piece i am working right now which i'd like to reference ehre.
mircea_popescu: let us just say "is alwayes too hard for himself" and come back to the particular issue in a day or two
asciilifeform: i suspect that the spark of sense in this thread, if there was one, has eluded asciilifeform . so ok.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, i would dare propose the fundamental difference is that the boy absolutely needs to maintain throughout a certain feeling of continuancy, a certain notion that he's still a person, that something from his past nevertheless even today stands, that his retrospective history is somehow interpretable as "having a red thread running through it". even if it were to change, it must be continuous.
mircea_popescu: whereas the girl does not so need. even if it is extremely distressing, the experience of the loss of the self is post-partum enjoyable, and in the process ultimately unscary.
diana_coman: might depend on what "self" one talks about there but anyways, it can certainly wait
mircea_popescu: diana_coman ah, i just meant the minor side point of "competent at wrong thing".
diana_coman: ah, I can see that; I'd put it simply: boy attaches a way higher cost to "being wrong"
mircea_popescu: incidentally, the whole "faux transvestite" a la brendafernandez, "i'm a boy who likes girls but not like a man, so how about i dress up like a girl and we frolic ?" is very much this "what if i could girl also ? discover one day mywhole prior life was a fake" etc.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: douche struck me as the type who 'invested' -- i.e. 'whaddayeamean you have no use for my 313337 web20 h4xx0r sk1llz, whatddayeamean go and learn asm or whatnot, you may as well be telling me that wagner, cyanide'
asciilifeform: imho this is strange for a 19yo, but the landscape does reliably produce these nao.
mircea_popescu: boys are supposed to try things, yes ? scary things, yes ? well ?
asciilifeform: per his cosmography he had 'already tried, landed'
mircea_popescu: oh i thought we were talking "transsexuals" / tulpas/ we
asciilifeform: ah no, i haven't the faintest notion that i know the first thing about these.
asciilifeform: pro psychopathologists strictly, subject
asciilifeform: there are reportedly folx who want to somehow 'be' horses, or dogs, etc. also.
asciilifeform: they buy specially tailored costumes, etc.
mircea_popescu: i suppose ; though it does not seem related.
asciilifeform: to 'trans' ? related.
asciilifeform: i can't properly picture what is inside the head of the sufferer, but imagine that 'if i dress up correctly, the gods will take pity and wave magic wand' or how else.
asciilifeform: recall the alice__ character ?
mircea_popescu: diana_coman do you recall the complaint of the police a few years ago that "you've got all these written exams, now we're stuck making police agents out of girlies, god help us" ?
asciilifeform: i parse it as 100% chukcha 'sympathetic magic' -- 'eat heart of walrus, become great swimmer'
asciilifeform: then you point out that they are no swimmer, and poor nutter goes apeshit
mircea_popescu: neah ; for one thing the "i r lion" fury people shy away whereas the "i r girl" "trans" people seek the limelight.
asciilifeform: 'wtf, i ate 500 walrus, what is wrong with you'
Mocky: seems to me both male and female cling to the continuity, but female has greater capacity to reframe the past to fit a completely different continuity narrative.
mircea_popescu: Mocky different construction of the id ; therefore different capacity to survive specific crashes.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: seems like not all 'seek limelight', erry so often you hear of navy officer with 30 yrs service who dresses up as chix when he thinks no one looking etc
mircea_popescu: the term's crossdresser.
asciilifeform: but this is far out of my depth re subj
mircea_popescu: there's two terms specifically for this reason
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, I recall that specific complaint mainly as repeatedly cited by you; but other than that I thought it was already quite pervasive issue basically
asciilifeform: i thought 'trans' was simply crossdresser deceived by quack doctors that he can haz usable synthetic cunt etc
mircea_popescu: diana_coman alright ; but do you see the argument that ~school as an institution~ provides a higher onthological threat to the boy than to the girl, specfifically because of this implicit "we'll make you something else" promise ?
diana_coman: if that's what the school promises, it's a tall order anyway; and for that matter does school make girl boy ? or what "something else"?
mircea_popescu: well, there's that old "as i became a man i put the things of childhood aside". "something else", you know ? not a girl, no, but who knows what terror ?!
mircea_popescu: there's a deep reason for all the historical "initiation ceremonies", and the reason is as usual need. maturation's axiogenic.
Mocky: if it was ballet school, then yeah something else.
mircea_popescu: you think ? from experience russki ballerina doods quite dangerous in close quarters.
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, what does axiogenic mean?

asciilifeform: Mocky: in old su, or current jp, and plenty elsewhere, nobody 'tells' boy anyffing, he gets told 'this is school' 'this here is the stick you will be whacked with' etc
mircea_popescu: in any case, it might be that the "decolonialization" sudden failure of europe has had the undiagnosed effect of removing fundamental mechanisms required for male maturation, leaving a sort of unstable state. perhaps the case is boys could manage just fine, if there was some sort of resource available to explain that... i don't even know, whatever the fuck, that it's ok to be a boy and it'll work out in the end.
Mocky: asciilifeform, sounds like less promise of something else

mircea_popescu: so remote is this "delectable pork sausage" in fact, that scarcely he perceives the difference between waving gun out of suv window and shooting some innocent bastard.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i don't believe that happened. the difference i propose is that for him, said "butchering" is an asimptote, the mind never quite reaches it. which is how they end up believing that "i pick up gun and start shooting" is the ~end~ state.
mircea_popescu: wtf end state, "don't take your guns to town, boy" is specifically about "don't ~START~ something".
mircea_popescu: the range wars in the very us raged in living memory as an exact manifest of this whole thing.

asciilifeform: in other noose, trad-gentoo's crossdev is completely rotten nao, tries to build glibc-2.27 (which is broken, as it won't build with any version of 'ld' i was able to find, full stop) EVEN WHEN YOU CROSSDEV ....linux-musl !!
asciilifeform: i.e. i was not able to build uboot on ANY of my boxen, even on the toilets where gcc5+ exists
mircea_popescu: good thing you have them.
asciilifeform: even on the specially-designated toilet with gcc8 etc
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i had'em for the ice40 thing, which demands such horrors as python3 etc
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: spiffy new subj line btw.
mircea_popescu: i'm just being intolerable for the sake of it. "good thing you have them, they don't work."
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: asciilifeform's collection of dun-works rivals that of any junkyard.
asciilifeform: ( and apparently growing, as 'progress' marches on )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform this is pioneering internet work, as far as i know never before seen. 1. "here are your options" "omfg i am a special snowflake i won't take any of those" ; 2. "you have no options" "omfg i shoulds have some options!!" "you had."
mircea_popescu: about as common experience of the contemporary mind as gods walking the earth.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: hollywood had it before, in 'no, mr bond! we expect you to DIE!!'
mircea_popescu: did he die ?
asciilifeform: sadly not
mircea_popescu: then not had.
asciilifeform: !Q later tell trinque how does cuntoo's work, does it have a 'vmerge' tree where e.g. ave1 can stuff his gnat, etc ? cuz that would rock.
asciilifeform: hmm lobbes bot down ?
mircea_popescu: not here at any rate. it's in #eulora tho
asciilifeform: upstack, https://archive.is/WMoLv (warning: entomologists only) << the how&why of uboot 'gcc5+ only' idjicy. tldr: gcc5 silently broke uboot on arm. so the latter was 'fixed' so as to... ONLY gcc5+. in the now-customary way.
a111: Logged on 2017-03-26 15:03 mp_en_viaje: basically a novel vector of imperial attack seems to be this "let's take republican items and ~EXPAND~ the downstream so that siberian river attack is then feasible".
mircea_popescu: could just use older ver ? of uboot i mean.
asciilifeform: inescapably must.
asciilifeform: but will have to saw off the board support for rk3399, and weld onto it somehow.
asciilifeform: really i fucking hate uboot, it is a ridiculously overmovingparted crock of shit
trinque: asciilifeform: whatcha mean by vmerge tree?
asciilifeform: trinque: i picture something like emerge, but has own package set, consisting of vtrees
asciilifeform: presses, installs systemwide
asciilifeform: eventually we napalm the old portage/emerge.
trinque: no, that's way too ambitious for first release. first release is just a vtronic ebuild tree
trinque: but that's certainly the way to go
trinque is hamstrung on some irl items atm, but will be working towards release this weekend if not sooner.
asciilifeform: https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/843954/ << dec '17, the moment of liquishitification
asciilifeform: 'Move the warning to an error as we have been promising would happen in this release. Signed-off-by: Tom Rini <firstname.lastname@example.org>'
asciilifeform: ^ for mircea_popescu's list.
mircea_popescu: why ty.
mircea_popescu: "Linux is the de facto standard operating system kernel at the core of leading products. Konsulko Groups experience in embedded Linux architecture, development, build/CI, QA, and maintenance will help you speed your Linux-based products to market."
mircea_popescu: sad sadnesses abound.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there's nuffin left in the old wood but the termites, and this ^ is what they look like. quite typical.
asciilifeform: btw interestingly, the most recent uboot ~builds~ on ave1's gnat, if one comments out the boobytrap. ( whether the resulting turd ~runs~, i do not yet know, but it builds without eggog)
mod6: Lords and Ladies of TMSR~, the ML is back up and running. I just want to formally post the State of Bitcoin Address for August: http://therealbitcoin.org/ml/btc-dev/2018-September/000309.html
asciilifeform: oh hey
mod6: In other news: Today is BingoBoingo's first day as Pizarro Manager. Congrats to him! We'll be working closely together to ensure a smooth transition over the next few months.
mod6: He has accepted the rate of 1 BTC per year for this role.
mod6: !Qcalc ((1/12)*5)
mod6: !Qcalc (1/12)*5
mod6: So that's: 0.41666667 BTC
mod6: I propose that's what we pay ben_vulpes for his services; five months, February through June. And, I propose a possible consulting fee for his assistance on the books going forward.
mod6: We have set a price point for the month at Pizarro as well, that price is: $6745 USD/BTC
mod6: BingoBoingo will begin sending out invoices within 24 hours, for the month of September. If you need a price quote before they go out, I can arrange that.
mod6: The exception will be, I will invoice BingoBoingo myself as one can not invoice himself (at least, I don't think you can)?
a111: Logged on 2018-09-05 16:57 mircea_popescu now regrets he didn't get whole.crub
mircea_popescu: i imagine one could.
mod6: mircea_popescu: ah, well, I'll have him give it a try then.
a111: Logged on 2018-09-05 16:40 asciilifeform: there are reportedly folx who want to somehow 'be' horses, or dogs, etc. also.
a111: Logged on 2018-09-05 14:21 asciilifeform: mod6: i have not forgotten your item; currently drowning in saecular liquishit, but expecting to get to it today
mod6: diana_coman: nice pics
mod6: Also, another bit of news: I've completed a draft of the Pizarro report. We're needed three more pieces of information and a second pair of eyes for review before it can be published. We're on it.
mod6: Also in the news, Pizarro has fully paid the "Wildcat Bonus" to BingoBoingo. The remainder was $2500. This has been shown on Pizarro statements in the "Fiat Liabilities" table. It will appear on the August statement as well. The payment was made September 1st. So look for that line to come off the fiat liabilities table when the September report is posted in early October.
BingoBoingo: Can confirm
mod6: How we doin with the drive shipment btw?
BingoBoingo: Paperwork done, oping for it this week
mod6: very nice, thank you in advance.
ben_vulpes: so mod6 you want to pay me for services already rendered?
mod6: That's what I was thinking ya. So instead of 1 BTC for a whole year, as previously agreed, we'd pay ya for the months that you served.
mod6: And going forward, we'd figure out a price upon which you could consult.
mod6: Does that seem fair?
ben_vulpes: not that i want to not get paid, but i don't recall a previous agreement
mod6: Really? I'm almost certain that somewhere we said 1 BTC for doing the manager role.
ben_vulpes: it's a sticky position, being stuck between my jewish scruples and having zero desire to ding the isp pointlessly.
ben_vulpes: should probably just take the loot lest anyone accuse me of virtue signaling!
mod6: Oooh, I see what it is. In the charter you were to be assigned 100`000 SSW at a per share price of 0.00001 BTC each.
mod6: Hmm, well, I didn't want to just leave it out there forever, unanswered either. So, let me know what you want to do, and we'll discuss in here.
mod6: Take your time, doesn't have to be immediately or anything.
ben_vulpes: mod6: trying to give away btc or what
ben_vulpes: mod6: i'm pretty sure that we're all squared up.
mod6: No, not at all. I just don't want it to go unanswered either. For insance, it'd be fine with me (asciilifeform?) to simply just take 41`666 shares instead. mircea_popescu can we do that?
mod6: *for you to just take
ben_vulpes: nono, warrants are the right to purchase shares from the corporation at a price.
mod6: oh i'm cocking this all up arnt i.
ben_vulpes: should i exercise them, the corporation takes in the btc i pay for them and adds them to the cap table.
ben_vulpes: i believe it's topologically identical to a call option that doesn't expire with a strike price of the "per share price".
mod6: Ok, so we're alright then eh - just wanna leave 'em on there.
mod6: I kinda had forgotten that we did shares. Just had it in my mind that we owed you 1 BTC as of Feb 1. or something.
ben_vulpes: not as far as i can recall.
mod6: yeah, it was the SSWs. Totally forgot.
mod6: Sorry for the bother.
mod6: That makes it easy anyway :D
ben_vulpes: i'm mock offended at the notion i'd let a liability kick around off sheet
mod6: I'd like to commend ben_vulpes on his instructions that he gave to Pizarro for how to do the monthly report. It really got me through it -- and made it easy.
mod6: It took some time, and I don't even begin to claim that I know -everything-, but I'm learning each time, and getting better at it. Kuddos to him for doing that.
ben_vulpes: once you understand double entry accounting it's not so difficult; glad the documentation made your life easier.
mod6: Much appreciated!
mod6: im so hungry i could eat a sandwich from the gas station
mircea_popescu: mod6 you can do whatever you two want.
mircea_popescu: in any case, a ssw assignment is not the same as a cash payment.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-09-06#1848266 << minus a whole pile of tax wank, just about.
a111: Logged on 2018-09-06 02:25 ben_vulpes: i believe it's topologically identical to a call option that doesn't expire with a strike price of the "per share price".
mircea_popescu: anyway, you want to pro-rate his warrants, you can do that. you want to kick them off the sheet altogether, "didn't complete a term", you can also do that. you want to let them ride, "whatever, he can have the lot", you can also do that.
mircea_popescu: lotta flexibility in your hand.
mod6: Thanks for the info and consideration, Sir.
