BingoBoingo: I think I might have to give up on creating a GPG keypair with the Mac SE/30
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: slow?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Key generation is still continuing. Either the entropy is really good or it is relying too much on virtual memory to try to accomplish this which... I think defeats the purpose if there are going to be a bunch of hard drive writes of the process.
asciilifeform: chances are, it's waiting for keystroke entropy.
asciilifeform: what's the os on that box?
BingoBoingo: NetBSD the 68k version

BingoBoingo: Vexual: The thing is there aren't many machines available that use so little bench space while not being x86 or ARM.

nubbins`: okay, so the poor sap who tried to buy one of my casascius coins at below face value on coingig sent me a "how do i know this isn't a scam?!" message
nubbins`: i politely informed him that the listing was removed 3 months ago and coingig keeps resurrecting it against my wishes
nubbins`: i then sent coingig a scathing email
nubbins`: so scathing, in fact, that my account doesn't exist anymore
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: The thing is python makes it easy to write something. The joy though comes from !import (your bit of 68k asm) and gradually removing the python.

BingoBoingo: "BingoBoingo: we dont need proof of that" I will gawker is cancer. Just the formula writing with decent info here "http://gawker.com/after-30-years-of-silence-the-original-nsa-whistleblow-1454865018" compared to the absolute shit here "http://lifehacker.com/how-hard-is-it-to-switch-to-linux-1462916866" ought to make someone cry.

BingoBoingo: Well, DMSO is one of the best agents for carrying drugs of high molecular weight into the circulatory system through cutaneous contact. And if it fails to poison you will at least smell of cruciferous vegtables for a few days.

Diablo-D3: truffles: alcohol isnt paleo either, but if you're going to get drunk, at least do it on wine
truffles: also doesnt olive oil burn faster
Diablo-D3: no peanut oil either, peanuts are a legume, and legumes are your doom.
truffles: WINE???
Diablo-D3: olive oil doesnt burn faster, it just has a lower smoke point
ThickAsThieves: uhh

mircea_popescu: no gold is "numismatic" unless you actually have renaissance italian issues or something
chaang-noi: 420, so who is lighting up in celibration? :)
nubbins`: mircea_popescu: coin collectors disagree, and as long as they continue to do so...
mircea_popescu: the entire value of the investment is predicated on circumstances changing of such nature that they can't continue to do so.
mircea_popescu: think about it. the "numismatic" value of bullion coins exists for as long as overcapitalised clueless americans stil exist.

nubbins`: although, to be fair, i buy numismatic coins because they appeal to my aesthetics
nubbins`: and i buy bullion because it's an investment
nubbins`: occasionally these two overlap, like with the Chinese 1oz panda coins
mod6: i would think you'd want it for its melt value, not its rarity
mod6: so when you have to cut one into quarters or whatever for tp... that guy wont care if its rare or not, only if it melts pure.

nubbins`: i found a Cyprus 3 mil coin in a handful of change
nubbins`: located Cyprus on a map, and dutifully hid away my newfound treasure for future days when it'd be worth a million bucks
asciilifeform: metals aficionados, do you run density tests on what you buy?
nubbins`: no, altho i don't buy bars
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the idea of coins is mostly that joe schmoe doesn't need any gear.
mircea_popescu: kinda why actual investors shun coins
nubbins`: ^
mod6: actually, im no aficionado, but density tests don't work to determine if filled with tungsten afaik. (gold and tungsten have nearly identical density) -- typically i've heard that the smaller the denomination of coin, the safer because they're harder to forge.
nubbins`: (^)
asciilifeform: you at least need the 'density spoon'
mircea_popescu: mod6 at the size of a coin, the cost of tungsten filling exceeds the value extracted.
nubbins`: i should just put "^" on a timer
mod6: ahh. that then too.
nubbins`: you can buy tungsten wedding rings
asciilifeform: if nobody tests, you don't even need tungsten, old-fashioned lead will suffice.
nubbins`: popular thing these days
nubbins`: altho impossible to cut off, so if you find yourself in the ER, they'll be shattering your ring with a set of locking pliers
mod6: don't get married?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform actually at the size of a coin, recognising lead fillings with a density meter is not trivial
nubbins`: mod6, too late
mircea_popescu: not that it can't be done, but you need steady hands and eyes
nubbins`: (i chose titanium)
asciilifeform: the traditional method is the 'spoon' that tips over
asciilifeform: has a 'go/no-go gauge' in it, too
nubbins`: tell me more of this spoon!

nubbins`: cool
asciilifeform: middle-right hand: thickness gauge
mircea_popescu: nubbins` tungsten's durity is why it's not worth filling coins with it.
asciilifeform: ultrasonic is the gold standard test if you don't want to drill/melt the sample.
nubbins`: mircea_popescu: from what i've heard, it's a massive pain to work tungsten
mircea_popescu: it is.
mircea_popescu: and the cost is per item (ie, making a 1/2kg filling or a 5 gram filling costs roughly the same)
nubbins`: nod
nubbins`: all kinds of fancy metals being used for rings these days. cobalt is another one
asciilifeform: t is pyrophoric.

ThickAsThieves: the french are simply more experienced
mircea_popescu: france has really done well under the socialists.
ThickAsThieves: The report also highlights the extensive scientific literature on the human ability to identify deceptive behavior. Summarizing 400 studies over the past 60 years, the report concludes that humans perform only "the same as or slightly better than chance." Given that the TSA has spent almost a billion dollars on the program, that's a pretty poor record.
thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: it's funny how in most socialist contries, they yearn for free markets anyways...

mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves it's also bs. humans get close to 100%, provided they're not idiots.
mircea_popescu: you try and pass contraband by a customs agent with 30 years in the field and tell me.
ThickAsThieves: smart humans cost too much, just buy dumb machines instead
mircea_popescu: ya well, then you get slightly better or equal to chance
ThickAsThieves: plus now everyone is documented nude
benkay: "people" make the same arguments about wine
ThickAsThieves: pretty good cause
benkay: average sample of wine "experts" can't tell shit from shinola
benkay: non idiots, well
mircea_popescu: benkay you know the joke with the monk ?
benkay: there are a few...
benkay: hit me
mircea_popescu: this monk is famous for being able to identify any wine, by the vineyard, even by the vintage in most cases.
mircea_popescu: so in order to pull a prank on him, some doods get him a glass fulla piss
mircea_popescu: monk takes a sip... sloshes it around, takes another sip and goes
