mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-06-05#1917304 << yeah, kinda interesting card trading thing.
a111: Logged on 2019-06-05 11:55 diana_coman: lol! oglaf-style game doesn't even sound bad
mircea_popescu: the problem with these is that they're all deeply persuaded, but i do mean DEEPLY, like, in the nephritic layer of their kidneys deep, that the ONE thing to do if you're making a game is rate-limit it.
mircea_popescu: nfi how they got to this notion, "o, you know what the best thing to do would be ? if people wanna do things in our game... ADD TIMERS SO THEY CAN"T!!!"
mircea_popescu: utter fucked in the head, scared by virtual, desperately needing some fake scarcity folk.
mircea_popescu: it's so very unspeakably dumb if you think about it, wtf, LET PEOPLE PLAY. that's why the fuck you made it in the first place, yes ? so they play it ?
mircea_popescu: dumb as it is, it's not merely widespread, it's universal. "the path to making money in a service economy is not at all doing exceptionally well at serving, but on the contrary, being a fucktarded romanian and saying no all the time!"
mircea_popescu: hmm, did i even recount the sad story of that typically moronic clerk ?
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: I suspect the game will ...break if one plays it seriously; like most anything "done"
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-06-05#1917318 << on contemplation : i can see the "don't be taking your own vows to the monastery [because god never heard of you]" in your quote ; but in honesty i was looking more for a "god is very obviouly on the side of the monastey (and if this isn't at all obvious to you that'd be a cause of concern) [so don't be taking any vows to the monaster

mircea_popescu: y]"
mircea_popescu: whether they're reducible to one another or not is a point i'm still waffly on, so.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, sure. of course it will.
mircea_popescu: women will also break if played seriously, and companies and economies and rivers and FUCKING SCIENCE
mircea_popescu: this is even why we play seriously : so as to have broken things that have been fixed (and broken again and fixed again, xn) rather than shiny untouched "things".
diana_coman: eh, they wanted to make some money not to have to fix things!
mircea_popescu: !Qlater tell phf hey props on your parser, it does right thing with context-supplementing bracket and link-anchoring bracked mixed in same line!
lobbesbot: mircea_popescu: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, no, that's exactly what i'm saying. they wanted to "make money" sitting rather than to make money making money.
diana_coman: and by "breaks" there I meant more like fundamentally break as in ...it's not really designed well; (because why design esp for "so that it can break and be repaired")
mircea_popescu: no, i know. economy is fucked, yes.
diana_coman: well yes, sitting while flapping about as to how not-sitting
diana_coman: aha
mircea_popescu: is great expert at identifying breakage in "virtual economies". in fact, one thing that kept his interest in gaming alive past the single player neverwinter nights / gothic/ nox etc era.
mircea_popescu: and guess what : femstate components always come up with the same "solutions", too.
diana_coman: most game's economies as far I know are a sort of "feeling like an X economy" really
diana_coman: 'dat solution is tried and tested, yes? lolz

mircea_popescu: diana_coman, tried, tested, known not to work, nevertheless "tested" again by every new cuntlet, on usual theory, "this idiocy is tested so often it must be good sense".
diana_coman: heh; common sense!
mircea_popescu: in fact, this is SO fucking ~biologically~ specific i'm even proposing it as the ~best currently known~ gender test. 1. female path : what are you going to do ? "im going to try X" why X ? "it's what everyone else tries". 2. male path : what are you going to do ? "i'm going to try Y" why Y ? "never fucking heard of it before"
mircea_popescu: as per the "males -- born to die trying ; females -- born to carefully & spawn" theory of biological gender difference, it even makes sense. in any case, the included prediction : i say there's not going to be a better (oral ; over the internet) gender test.
mircea_popescu: (i eminently do not say it has no failure rate. not even pregnancy tests make that sorta claim -- piss on one as a dude long enough you might be surprised eventually.)
diana_coman: hm, I ...would have failed it even at ~12; but I see what you mean, provided that respondent actually gives /is aware of real answer.
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: #trilema solves the mystery of XX / XY notation!!!

mircea_popescu: properly, ie from the bottom up, not "invented by some government" (which is why they're "dark", ie, do not figure in bureaucrat's files) and which is also why they work and so forth and so on.
mircea_popescu: currently you can put a much better price on privacy (and meaningful, too, as a % of the wealth involved -- contrary to what the poortards imagine, privacy is not an abstract, privacy is strictly a function of money as a counter of value.
mircea_popescu: you want privacy when you're killing some dumb fuck, not when you're sitting with the vidya)

asciilifeform: 1 moar hypothesis : on boxes where very slow rng (e.g. fg unavailable ) or where heavily milked fg, generating e.g. ephemeral rsa privs with high frequency, economy may be much greater, as fewer doomed m-r shots means fewer '?' invocations for their witnesses gen.

a111: Logged on 2019-06-06 11:33 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, BingoBoingo how's the status, are you rather short or rather long dubaloo liquidity ?
BingoBoingo: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-06-06#1917490 << The long USD position was during the recent market bottom. Now datacenter needs paid monthly again and I don't know if going USD long is the most prudent decision. Jurov put in a bid for the DC wire, and I'm curious if the bidding will get more heated near the end as it did with the smaller 500 USD auctions.
a111: Logged on 2019-06-06 11:31 mircea_popescu: is this wrong, should i jus tstfu so as not to ruin the small trades for interested ppls ?

BingoBoingo: In local drug bust lols, Where are the big bills? http://archive.is/ar5MY
asciilifeform: spent, lol
BingoBoingo: Possible. I'm inclined to suspect there weren't any big bills.
asciilifeform: mebbe all spent on that museum piece rifle
asciilifeform: ... and that .30 , it had to come long way from hitler's bunker
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Most of the bustable drug trade appears to occur at the level of cuidadocoches and the immediate next level up. Would not be surprised if the rifle was acquired with 50 and 20 peso notes.
asciilifeform: wtf is with 'peso notes' , incidentally, i thought the One Troo Unit of underground currency were the benjie
asciilifeform: ... evidently this is the 'new gen' of dope people, as pictured in mircea_popescu's piece
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Depends on where they are on the pyramid. If they do retail in Uruguay, they only ever see small bills.
asciilifeform: for what does ground level retailer need the mosin ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: By appearances this would be a "boca de pasta" that keeps the folks on the ground supplied.
asciilifeform: a.
BingoBoingo: What the police would call here "a warehouse"
BingoBoingo: The white stuff appears to mostly be "pasta base" i.e. solvent waste from cocaine processing that happens to have just enough cocaine to be marketable to the abjectly poor but not enough cocaine to economically recover for powdering.
asciilifeform: sounds rather like the http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-05#1858675 item

asciilifeform: potentially -- entirely diff. dope, in effect... if only gabriel_laddel were here, could answer this puzzler.
