mp_en_viaje: the fact that you don't "close the contract cleanly" is a cost to them and them alone, it affects you exactly not at all. let them pay for the service if they wish to have the service -- says the man who'd bill the US congress appearance fees to testify before it, like any other TV network.
mircea_popescu: while it's true that in principle such a thing as the greek tragedy damnation could exist in reality (or whatever, its shitty hollywood renditions), nevertheless ~this is a point for the gods alone~. it is not a symbol representable in the mind of man ; all attempts to do so are they themselves doomed to failure.
mp_en_viaje: yes, i'm very much aware "asciilifeform would rather roll out gossipd, trbi, sane comp irons, etc. ~with~ participation of mp_en_viaje" etc. the problem here is -- you will do no such thing. what you will do, instead, is reconfigure your own desk into some sort of shape you and you alone deem meaningful, and that's all. because it is not POSSIBLE, for the man who can't say either "i will do this" and then do it, nor "i said i would do this, but d
asciilifeform: i thought 'man alone'(tm) were crackpot who hosts on hand-turned html on box in cellar, crafting perpetuum mobiles an' squaring circles
mircea_popescu: because he's a man alone ?
a111: Logged on 2019-01-14 00:17 BingoBoingo: My inclination was not to take the earlier committment for granted and underline the need to start working out a plan to achieve a positive ROI because I can't man alone it. Having sidechannel discussions outside this forum has been demonstrated -EV in the past. I am also wary of having strategic discussions outside of the channel where most of the republic's strategic and commercial competence sits.

asciilifeform: meanwhile, in the 'man alone' dept, http://interim.mntmn.com
asciilifeform: seems like there's a roughly 6 mo. lifetime for folx who fall into 'man alone', sorta how there is 6 mo. ramp-up for n00bz
asciilifeform: if man-alone dreams of 'money while sleep', fman-alone -- of 'money with dildo'
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It's a quote from a piece of children's literature. Sub "President" for "Man ritualistically staying alone"
asciilifeform: reminds me of 'reactos' ( another oddball 'man alone' item; believe or not : attempt to open sores re-create... winblowz )
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-09-30#1856234 << man was not made to "alone". ☝︎
mircea_popescu: my own read was that linus was run of the mill man-alone, ran into the usual pike ( http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-31#1838412 ) awaiting these. ☝︎
mircea_popescu: very poorly organised thought process, in the freeranged derp. hence my "man alone" comment.
mircea_popescu: this being yet another aspect of the problems of man alone. absent a fortress where to do it, he's stuck solving some kinds of problems in some kinds of ways only.
Mocky: well ok then help me understand this: i have 'book of useful recipes' composed partial of code that I wrote *with* other intelligent people and partially of things that i just just wrote personally to simplify my own common tasks and found useful over a long period of time. is the latter portion 'man alone' ?
asciilifeform: not only 'errors accumulate', but in practice 'man alone' does not long drift, sooner or later drifts into one of the 9000+ intellectual mine fields and that's that, you get a new kanzure or graham or follower thereof etc
mircea_popescu: the issue of http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=man+alone is very much related to the problem of http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=coffin+liners in that they stem from the same source -- nobody else there to anchor your thought process. you understand what dead reconing is and how it fails ?
mircea_popescu: i believe the ants in my kitchen are worthy of their lofty house, fully understand that history is made by the great man, and the great man alone.
asciilifeform: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKckPDRW-jk << meanwhile, in 'man alone'
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-17#1835525 << man alone ; just because they fail at anything they try doesn't mean much. of course they do, that's precisely how we ended up with the turdsoup. ☝︎
mircea_popescu: the success entirely depends on man-alone-ism
mircea_popescu: different from, say, comp.lang.lisp archive in that a) their chosen kid wasn't naggum and b) they actually had gathered around properly, as opposed to the idiots on bbs, captive in their self-important notions of independence and other man-alone-isms.
mircea_popescu: this is stupid. it keeps you powerless and inca strong. see http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=man+alone / http://trilema.com/2012/anonimity-or-the-urban-versus-rural-dispute/
lobbes: So no, I would not say that the case is that my skin is "insufficiently resistant for Lordly responsibility", it is rather "leave me the fuck alone or I'll knock you over the head". That being said, if BingoBoingo is threatening to knock me over the head, then plox tell me before you do so we can work something out in this forum. Unlike my considerations for the old woman, I consider BingoBoingo a Better Man Than I.
lobbes: shinohai embarking on man-alone adventures eh?
spyked: "man alone"?
mircea_popescu: "sadly, in some fields there's only enumerable stable states, once not-in-1, then-in-other becomes unavoidable." there's no such thing as clever honest man-alone.
mircea_popescu: it didn't become obvious "there's nothing there". what became obvious was the curt cobain problem : that the only ~possible~ move remaining for the "man alone" is suicide.
pinochle: don't be a man alone
danielpbarron: https://youtu.be/dht_3NziwSw << a man alone
mircea_popescu: basically, people whose heads work have the "choice" such as it is : republic, or man-alone.
a111: Logged on 2018-04-22 17:52 mircea_popescu: meanwhile it's become a fixation in the children ; now merge it with the church of self esteem and its holy youcandoanything, and the REASON http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-16#1800094 ie "smart kids" always being found with their pants down acting the "man alone" part and never learning anything from the experience is pretty fucking clear.
a111: Logged on 2018-04-16 16:19 mircea_popescu: man acting alone is stuck with these "oh, a conclave of idiots bent on self preservation and avoiding the lowly station their idiocy warrants them holds all the power, and i'll act as man alone confronted by governemnt".
asciilifeform: what's 'man alone'
mircea_popescu: hey, it gets the man-alone derps confused enough.

mircea_popescu: and now think -- that for his great merits, aristotle was in fact given by the city "2000 btc", ie exactly what you mean by it, "sufficient money so as i can be a righteous man alone".
mircea_popescu: it should perhaps be pointed out that while things like grocery lists, love letters, blog articles, ransom notes at all one might "should" write, it is the obituary which stands alone among all the literary forms as the only piece man must, eventually but absolutely MUST write.
mircea_popescu: but for the sake of historical record, the very traditional central european "you may not say no to a man ; and ESPECIALLY not sexually" lands, ie from south carolina south and west as far as maybe eastern arizona, provide slut protection, in that "and if you end up alone with three kids before you're 30 i won't hold that against you".
mircea_popescu: "battlestar galactica" is actually more accomplished, and this coming from a man who actually despises tolkien, let alone rando pulper.
jhvh1: Man must not live on reddit alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of alf ... http://btcbase.org/log/2017-07-12#1682044

danielpbarron: mircea_popescu> check it out, the trishop has meanwhile set aside apostasy as an exclusion criteria for nuptials. << key word is *friend* -- the point being, if man and woman don't both believe then they shouldn't even be friends, let alone get married
pete_dushenski: thestringpuller: you're not alone as a black-dude-with-an-affinity-slash-respect-for-the-non-black-dude-fro. when i let my hair down, everyone from the ethiopian immigrants here to the locals in jamaica all be like "yo man! hao cum yoo iz gott hayur like mee?!"
mircea_popescu: but seriously, the libtards/hipsers actually need " People aren't seeing Eastwood play Walt; they are seeing The Man With No Name now aged 70 and living alone, still clinging to his horse, I mean gun, I mean car. That's the guy they want to see "grow," that's the guy they want to see admit he was wrong. " ?
asciilifeform: the implication is that man does not live by bread alone (tm)

mircea_popescu: "The results were overwhelming: 88 percent of women reported having experienced at least one incident in which their friendliness was misinterpreted as sexual interest by a man, and on average it had occurred about 3.5 times in the last year alone. Men also reported experiencing sexual misperception, but the rate — 70.6 percent — was far lower. These rates were pretty similar to what was found in the original, U.S.
nubbins`: why did this man feel that taking 400mcg of LSD, alone, in a rowboat, in the middle of a lake, in nepal, was a good idea?
cazalla: nubbins`: BingoBoingo cazalla let's see a qntra story about blazedout's 28btc piece of wood <<< identifying wood.. it's wood type article? heh, i wouldn't buy that but i'll leave the man alone to enjoy his wood collection

artifexd: mircea_popescu mike_c made a comment that would have fit nicely into that post. Something along the lines of "Leave the man alone. Either he is the real Satoshi and deserves our respect. Or he isn't and you're bothering the wrong guy."
davout: mjr_: leave britney alone man

BTC-Mining: Bitcointalk.org should have a tutorial when you register. You start in a cave and an old man says: "It's dangerous to go alone. Take this." Upon which point you receive a bag containing the following books: "Trolling for Dummies", "Living Among the Trolls", "Trollslaying 101" & "How to Troll Further"
