mircea_popescu: benkay "I am currently using this fiction whereby the MPBOR established through the workings on one month is declared to be the central bank rate valid for the next month. This is obviously not particularly correct, other than the twin considerations that “natura non facit saltus” on one hand and that it works on the other."

mircea_popescu: ahahaha stable
mircea_popescu: good one
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> for some odd reason, nobody ever gets this lucky in meatspace casino. << they do, actually.
mircea_popescu: i distinctly remember this rush where wynn was trying to somehow structure a deal to cover for an insanely lucky player over the weekend
asciilifeform: i always wondered if the de-facto rule in meatspace casinos is 'don't win more than it costs to have your body fed to pigs,' or the like.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SFI] 1000 @ 0.00094348 = 0.9435 BTC [+] {3}
asciilifeform: casino politics is an interesting subject
mircea_popescu: this was, as best anyone can determine, not the case past about 1880 or so
mircea_popescu: in general the route is to pay up, in cash, then pile gifts upon you so that you return to the table.
asciilifeform: someone i know was involved in the design of video poker machines, long ago, and was told that his name will probably end up on the 'reject list' (turn out at the door)
mircea_popescu: benkay why "mirceapopescu" as a subscript for th e2nd word ?!
BingoBoingo: Yeah, most people involved in casino work more sophisticated than carrying drinks tend to find their way on reject lists, at least for their own casino
asciilifeform: i don't know for a fact that this is so - he never had the slightest desire to set foot in a casino.
asciilifeform: but it strikes me as plausible - i can see why they'd rather not risk it.
benkay: org mode is being clever
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SFI] 160 @ 0.0009489 = 0.1518 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo most people who are good at anything more involved than sucking cock (which is really the criteria for COCKtail waitresses) don't like to play anyway.
mircea_popescu: i don't think i ever saw a pit boss play anything, ever.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform exactly.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I've know a couple who do poker tournaments and have done the thing where you sit at the blackjack table and try not to lose more than you would have spent on the drinks.
mircea_popescu: did they last five years in their job ?
BingoBoingo: one of them is going on seven and can't say what he got promoted to. Just he doesn't work the floor anymore. Most of them have burned out in under a year though.
mircea_popescu: kinda meshes then
BingoBoingo: The only people with longevity dealing tables seem to be the people doing it to keep busy after they retire.
mircea_popescu: it's funny, for 2-3 decades they kept trying to get hot female and even mal;e dealers
mircea_popescu: eventually gave up on the notion.
BingoBoingo: Most casinos here don't have much in the way of table games. The slots and video poker seem to cover most of the floor.
mircea_popescu: and by here you mean "this millenium"
BingoBoingo: Well, yes. Similar to BTC and how many people do the dice stuff trying to magic their way into a jackpot.
benkay: also lower labor overhead on the machines, i imagine
mircea_popescu: one of the better "investments"
mircea_popescu: benkay i suspect it's the progressives really.
benkay: ?
mircea_popescu: big wins on small odds is what drives crowds.
mircea_popescu: it's impossible to efficiently get 100 blackjack deals to share pennies into a multi-million pot.
mircea_popescu: machines can easily do it.
mircea_popescu: pankkake : s/xunitparser/cuntitsparser.
herbijudlestoids: hey guys
herbijudlestoids: remember i was in here the other day complaining how postmodern the inernet is?
herbijudlestoids: well i saw today an article about cloudcoin/bitcloud lol these guys dont even realise https://github.com/bytemaster/tornet this exists already
mircea_popescu: that's okay. 9x% of all noobs reinvent the wheel earnestly convinced they are contributing.
mircea_popescu: usually their wheel is square and stuff, too.
herbijudlestoids: hows it going mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: pretty good.
herbijudlestoids: thats good, whats happening today? i just came on to complain as usual
mike_c: asciilifeform: last time i looked at a casino profit chart it read like: 11b profit on slots, 1b on table games.
benkay: herbijudlestoids: it's not abandonware?
mike_c: er, i meant to send that to BingoBoingo :) re: floorspace for slots vs table games
herbijudlestoids: benkay: probably to some extent it is
BingoBoingo: mike_c: Well other factors being equal a slot machine allow for placing bets faster than a dealer does
mike_c: plus there is a world of blue-haired ladies with nothing better to do.
mircea_popescu: i tell you, it's the progressives.
mircea_popescu: no craps game ever had a 19mn jackpot
mike_c: carribean stud tries to do that with a table game
mike_c: jackpot is usually like 100k though
mircea_popescu: mhm
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: (unrelated) i now sympathize with your travails re: that Mac SE
BingoBoingo: I imagine speed element plays in too. That may play into why so few in US casino industry are trying to fight to expand regulated sports and event gambling to new jurisdictions. The few hours it takes a sporting contest to resolve is something I don't know if they can comprehend compared to the seconds a slot takes. May as well be an eternity.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: recently tried, and failed, to get several different OS running acceptably on a '90s laptop
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Oh?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: toshiba l 110ct
asciilifeform: 233MHz, 64M RAM, (modern) 60GB SSD
herbijudlestoids: try netbsd
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: These are the great problems of our times. Getting hardware worth using to work again is a challenge.
herbijudlestoids: asciilifeform: which OS have you tried so far? i feel like they should work
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the real royal bitch is that it needs a 70M hole at 8.4G offset with no partition in it (suspend-to-disk)
asciilifeform: herbijudlestoids: freebsd (what i had on it when i was a student), but didn't have the gigantic disk then
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Actual for obscure and old hardware OpenBSD seems to have better hardware and human support than NetBSD. At least that seems the experience on 68k machines
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: youre probably right
asciilifeform: then debian, and killed it in nauseating revulsion, discovering that it swaps to disk with nothing interesting running
asciilifeform: and comes with a bowl full of turds (bluetooth, avahe, etc.) by default

BingoBoingo: I still miss 128 MB of Ram in a compact desktop sold in a time such things were rather unimaginable.
asciilifeform: this box was originally 32, expanded to 64 (max).
BingoBoingo: So much Hypercard
BingoBoingo: The old SE/30 was 4MB when I picked it up at a school auction for $10
the20year2: my first pc was 16mb w/ a 1g HD
the20year2: err, 1.2gb
BingoBoingo: I also have a few Mac Classics and Classic II's which had 1 MB of Ram. Cannabalized 4 of them to give one classic 4 MB of RAM (cheaper to get whole machines than sticks) Had to order RAM to beef up the SE/30 though
asciilifeform: my symbolics 3620 has 4mb.
the20year2: sweet
BingoBoingo: The Classics had 40 MB hard drives, the SE/30 came to me with a 20 MB hard drive.
asciilifeform: http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/det/22982/Symbolics/ (not mine, but good picture)
the20year2: A local school threw out a bunch of older 386 PCs with 20mb drives, they were huge
nubbins`: my first pc was a tandy 1000sx
nubbins`: dual 5.25"s, no hd
the20year2: Nice
nubbins`: had this golf game where you had the option to print your scores at the end. we didn't have a printer; my dad tried to explain it to me, and i couldn't wrap my head around it
nubbins`: "but if it doesn't have any keys, how does it mark the paper?"
BingoBoingo: My first computers were this flock of old macs I got from the school back in 1999 or 2000. Maybe it was 2001?
nubbins`: i remember upgrading the ram to 512kb to play king's quest iv
nubbins`: those were hard fuckin games
BingoBoingo: It was the summer before I started High School. I had gone that long without a computer and decided fuck it, I'm getting several.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform try openbsd :D
BingoBoingo: It took several trips walking to et them all carried home.
mircea_popescu: king's quest was pretty ok, but not rly so hard.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that's more or less all that's left. now if someone here knows how to get a bsd to boot from a small separate partition below 1024 cylinders, and mount root fs, etc. from a larger one...
mircea_popescu: lilo!
TomServo: king's quest was great until I found monkey island
mircea_popescu: actually talking of hard games, try king's bounty on top diffictuly. the modern versions
mircea_popescu: they're insane.
nubbins`: i mean, i got through them fine as a kid, maybe i had more patience back then
asciilifeform: the bootloader wasn't the issue - the *bsds seem to insist on a massive single mbr partition subdivided into bsd 'labels'
mircea_popescu: wotn probably can't even be done, you won't get past that spider.
nubbins`: they re-released king's quest 3 a couple years ago, i gave it a shot
nubbins`: fared brutally
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you mean they fail to represent the disk arrangement ?
mircea_popescu: or am i missing something
nubbins`: http://www.agdinteractive.com/games/kq3/download/download.html
asciilifeform: freebsd (1st try) didn't like having its '/boot' live on a separate mbr part.
nubbins`: windows/mac only ;(
mircea_popescu: that sounds insane.
mircea_popescu: how does it even know.
asciilifeform: it hardcodes '/boot/kernel/...' into the loader, it seems
mircea_popescu: nubbins` i always liked the part where it's "sir graham the hero". esp for a romanian speaker it was like Sir Breadloaf
nubbins`: haha
mircea_popescu: ok. that is the most retarded fucking thing i ever heard
mircea_popescu: who does this.
nubbins`: sir graham, the earl of sandwich
mircea_popescu: hjahaha
mircea_popescu: no it was like fiverpool or somesuch
mircea_popescu: bover
asciilifeform: the machine in question is more than an idle plaything, it has a dos fat16 part. (to drive CO2 laser)
mircea_popescu: what the fuck was it
nubbins`: daventry!
mircea_popescu: mondon lol. it was ah yes!
mircea_popescu: yes that's it
nubbins`: the first time a machine made me feel fear was when the snow monster popped out at me for the first time
nubbins`: first time first time
herbijudlestoids: hehe tim cook aapl ceo says there is no backdoor in aapl products but since they are under a gag order he cant prove it

ozbot: [OpenBSD/i386] 2 MBR Partitions with OpenBSD?
asciilifeform: seems like openbsd won't even try to install /boot to a separate mbr part.
KRS1: which boot loader lilo?
asciilifeform: KRS1: not an issue with the boot loader
asciilifeform: but with an os that presumes that it lives on one mbr part.
mircea_popescu: herp. what gag order.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i suppose you can just edit and recompile...
mircea_popescu: not that such a thing should ever be said to anyone in any context, let alone in response to "hi lol, we hardcoded random shit because magic strings are cool"
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: and what if i were 'civilian', rather than a weirdo with a physical drive hooked through a dongle to a vm for installs/overnight compile of whatever
KRS1: pbr?
asciilifeform: and stuck doing compile on a pentium 1...
mircea_popescu: ikr.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.4900002 BTC [-]
asciilifeform: the only reason i even tell this story here is to note how obscenely bloated modern unixlikes have become
KRS1: the pbr locates /boot not mbr
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform http://24.media.tumblr.com/276732a929bca5e826348f107881e783/tumblr_mlg7z8DEV01ru15g3o1_1280.jpg
mircea_popescu: random civillian reaction.
KRS1: just trying to help not to try to be disrespectful or anything but if mbr is working right, pbr isn't set right
asciilifeform: what's the object bolted to the wall?
mircea_popescu: on the left ? a wire mask
asciilifeform: KRS1: partitions are trivial to lay out, the issue was that the bsd loader presumes that '/boot' and '/' are on the same partition.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i suppose she is 'calling someone who cares'

mircea_popescu: "About two weeks later I started my sophomore year at college." is the controlling part.

herbijudlestoids: what a stupid fuckwit i was
herbijudlestoids: i think i actually like george bush more
kakobrekla: no, thats the next dude.
mircea_popescu: many people actually believed the "intelligent, educated guy that happens to be black"
herbijudlestoids: well it wasnt that but he said all the right things
BingoBoingo: Well, in the US we get just the worst candidates
herbijudlestoids: remembrer when oblabla said he wanted to close guantanamo LOL
mircea_popescu: yeah, that's so totally unique to the us...
herbijudlestoids: or when he said the PATRIOT act was bad ahahahahahahha
mircea_popescu: aka "read my lips" moments.
herbijudlestoids: the best, best of absolute all was when he told us that they would be the most transparent administration in history
herbijudlestoids: LMFAO
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 5 @ 0.487 = 2.435 BTC [-] {2}
mircea_popescu: but it is pretty transparent
mircea_popescu: you can see right through it.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 5 @ 0.4861 = 2.4305 BTC [-]
herbijudlestoids: through yes, into no
herbijudlestoids: i want the revolving door for big finance, big pharma and big industry in general to end
mircea_popescu: why ?
herbijudlestoids: there is no way you should be able to be the head of some important decision making function at the USDA and then in a week go work for monsanto
herbijudlestoids: or be the general who blows up civilians and then go onto consult for fox news and raytheon
mircea_popescu: right. but this mostly because you don't want either usda or monsanto
mircea_popescu: so in short, the door is not the problem. the existence of the buildings the door is attached to is the problem
herbijudlestoids: by the same token raytheon lobbyists should not be allowed to become the chief of staff at the pentagon
mircea_popescu: because neither raytheon or pentagon should exist.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.486 BTC [-]
herbijudlestoids: well no
herbijudlestoids: im not ideologically opposed to the idea of national self defence, or industrial agriculture per se
chetty: yeah well close the door is the first step. then you can blow up the buildings one at a time
mircea_popescu: in that case you're stuck with the statu quo.
herbijudlestoids: wut/
mircea_popescu: because you only have so many intelligent people involved, and so both regulator and actor hire from the same pool
herbijudlestoids: so you reckon we cant have one without the other? its simply impssobie for humans?
mircea_popescu: and are happy when someone accepts a job.
herbijudlestoids: thats quite cynical but i guess you are probly right im being idealistic
mircea_popescu: right.
mircea_popescu: you have 500 ceo jobs to be filled and 50 regulator head jobs to be filled
mircea_popescu: if you're lucky you have 5 people who could do it, and they could do either.
mircea_popescu: what now ?
herbijudlestoids: well then i will settle for more information, everything needs to be more transparent so we can at least argue over it
mircea_popescu: yeah, except bitcoin has perfect information and the end result is what, the forum ?
mircea_popescu: information doesn't help the stupid, nor the lazy.
herbijudlestoids: fine, you cynical realist bastard
mircea_popescu: yw.
herbijudlestoids: i want more information and an educated populace
BingoBoingo: Not going to happen populaces resist education
mircea_popescu: "75% of 200 anon voters are in agreement bitbet should give random people random moneyz" and "anon dork knows X scam is legit, anon dork Y knows mpex exists to scam noobs". that's your information and argument >D
herbijudlestoids: i think probably we arent all stupid and lazy
herbijudlestoids: but we are goaded into it over time
mircea_popescu: yeah, but it's easier to stay stupid and be lazy.
mircea_popescu: therefore, any distribution will be stupid-heavy and lazy-heavy
herbijudlestoids: especially if youve got something to lose, like a girlfriend or family
mircea_popescu: nah
mircea_popescu: people will gladly lose it and then cry.
mircea_popescu: rather than think and so get to keep it.
mircea_popescu: the only way to get an "educated populace" is to constuct a hierarchy, where 90% are enforced into slavery, and then the 10% at the top have a good incentive to be educated
mircea_popescu: british empire style.
mircea_popescu: it's still not a stable solution
chetty: too bad its not reversible = thinking and not being lazy always wins
mircea_popescu: (partly because the daughters are sluts and keep fucking the underclass, partly because the sons are lazy and well... same deal)
herbijudlestoids: today is australia day here in australia
herbijudlestoids: i call it amnesia day

asciilifeform: for anyone who ever finds himself in the vintage laptop quandary described earlier:
asciilifeform: solution = openbsd + 'plop' (boot manager that laughs at idiot 8GB limit of old bios)
BingoBoingo: That might be incredibly useful in the future.
asciilifeform: http://www.plop.at/en/whatisplop.html
ozbot: Plop - What is Plop?
asciilifeform: openbsd still eats most of the 64M though.
BingoBoingo: Well, other than trying progressively older versions of OpenBSD I dunno if there is a solution to Unix bloat.
mircea_popescu: plop is a poplar tree.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [DEALCO] 25 @ 0.00469998 = 0.1175 BTC [-]
asciilifeform: 1980s unix users would have killed for 64MB.
asciilifeform: or 233MHz / 32bit bus.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I think this hits back to a problem you and Joel on Software raise. Thinking in C, the solution to bugs seems to almost necessarily involve creating more code as opposed to trimming problematic code.
BingoBoingo: I mean Intel's top processors for quite some time have been at their core rather trim RISC architectures, but Bloaty McLegacy Bloaterson keeps getting tacked on.
KRS1: Dont forget Creepy McFeature Creeperson
BingoBoingo: KRS1: Features are a myth.
KRS1: lol suuure
KRS1: I've seen plenty go to crapware because of that.
BingoBoingo: Depends on what you consider crapware.
KRS1: As long as I consider it, then it is, I'm the user =D
BingoBoingo: I mean most feature complete TeX distros run roughly as large once installed as Acrobat Pro.
BingoBoingo: (speaking purely in terms of disc space)

kakobrekla: i kinda thought we started at the bottom
kakobrekla: seems i was wrong
johndoe_: heyy
johndoe_: hey

johndoe_: hot
johndoe_: loll jk
BingoBoingo: kakobrekla: No, the bottom always gets lower. Bitcoin started with stupid, but smart enough to have read that bitcoin exists. Nao we get people who learn of bitcoin while eating tv dinners on the couch.
KRS1: At least the bait is free.
johndoe_: anyone know where u can get like .000001btc i want to test it out
johndoe_: i will give back if anyone sends
johndoe_: any1?
kakobrekla: you seem like some unknown dead person to me
kakobrekla: i dont give btc to such people
BingoBoingo: Why quit so soon johndoe_ I may have had work...
kakobrekla: did he leave before my reply and i look stupid?
BingoBoingo: Yeah
kakobrekla: well i guess i look stupid either way, so nevermind that one.
BingoBoingo: I was going to ask if he had a sharpie and a camera
kakobrekla: the bad side of having joins and parts disabled
kakobrekla: but it makes for a cleaner experience
kakobrekla: yeah for a sharpie ill chip in too.
kakobrekla: we can like split buttcheeks
kakobrekla: or should i rather say share.
BingoBoingo: Well, he only wanted .000001btc seems like a bargain
BingoBoingo: I dunno if a buttcoin is worth more than 0.01 BTC anymore nao
kakobrekla: hmmm
kakobrekla: considering the rise of beggars... someone should start collecting buttcoin on some dedicated blog
BingoBoingo: I mean unless if the ass is that nice and they offer proof of girlparts in advance maybe up t0 0.1 BTC might be possible.
kakobrekla: like shame of wall for leechers.
BingoBoingo: I've just been collecting them in case people go scam.
kakobrekla: and each buttcoin pic would ofc show where and howmuch twas paid.
BingoBoingo: Most usernames I've bought buttcoins from have died soon after, which of course decreases the value of buttcoins
kakobrekla: the shame is too great.
BingoBoingo: I definitely paid too much for this batch: i.imgur.com/yQ52mP7.jpg i.imgur.com/SYqlDeP.jpg i.imgur.com/o08heoV.jpg
BingoBoingo: The one who knew where sharpie went was do not want
kakobrekla: yea, and we can like make tradedable cards from these buttcoins and make like a dedicate online exchange, and when we like feel like its not going well, start trading btc:usd and keep the name
BingoBoingo: We can call buttcoin cars magic. And name the exchange Magic The Gathering Online Exchange
BingoBoingo: *eXchange

BingoBoingo: Duffer1: Go forth and collect buttcoins from beggars and potential scamzors.
kakobrekla: i recently got a new hobby, mostly asciilifeform fault
BingoBoingo: Make a database.
kakobrekla: now im overdoing it
BingoBoingo: If someone sells the same butt twice, flag them as dupes

BingoBoingo: You know there was a buttcoin conversation earlier. I wonder what the value of a bit tooth is...
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 20 @ 0.49 = 9.8 BTC [+]
BingoBoingo: As someone who due to a mismatch between the size of my jaw and 8 extra molars who wanted to live there doubt I'd extract any teeth of my own for BTC. I wonder how other people might price this though.
Mats_cd03: do you have any gold teeth
Mats_cd03: or maybe platinum
Mats_cd03: mtv cribs style
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: I'm thinking about getting some patched in gold
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: I've paid people BTC to stick sharpies in their poopers (after Mircea started that trend)
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: Mostly I find that boring and cheap now that post people realize poopers are openings that easily accomodate sharpies
Mats_cd03: how unfortunate
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: I know. Very bitcoin problem. Lacking a business idea te only way to spend BTC is entertainment by people who desperately want Btc
Mats_cd03: do you enjoy poker?
Mats_cd03: if you do, you should read a book and then play on swc
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: In some circumstances. I prefer sports and event betting as a revenue stream, but taking throwaway money to poker can be fun.
BingoBoingo: I don't play on Seals anymore though.
BingoBoingo: Not only was that hack a bridge to far.
Mats_cd03: the players are good and if you play very tight you can prob make $50/hr with one screen up
BingoBoingo: They never let me fucking reset my password or lock out my name from further use
Mats_cd03: thats too bad
BingoBoingo: The fact that in 3-48 months someone cracking the passwords leaked will have my password is bad.
BingoBoingo: Because people mistakenly think SwC chat is a decent place to trade shit.
BingoBoingo: Any by cracking the password whose hash adversaries Seals won't chance is basically making me wait until the sweet wine of my ass turns into fucking salad dressing.

Mats_cd03: if you cant think of a bitcoin business then buy a tesla
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: I'd rather buy a Pontiac Aztek. Those are fun.
Mats_cd03: i sat in one, its pretty nice...its like a prius with the instant heat but comfortable too
BingoBoingo: What cars are especially fun are the most recent Ford Crown Victorias.
Mats_cd03: its clutch during the winter time
BingoBoingo: I just don't much care for cars who can't as they end their life compete with some success in a demolition derby
BingoBoingo: I'd get an old combine harvester and enter that demolition derby, but THAT competition turns into srs bsns fast.
BingoBoingo: I just want a car that can die with dignity
Mats_cd03: i have an idea for a bitcoin business
BingoBoingo: Also, I don't want to be the last to drive it. I know plenty of people who actually enjoy letting themselve be the Undertaker for car's last moments
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: What fucking kind of business
Mats_cd03: have you seen that electronic credit card
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: That coin thing?
Mats_cd03: yeah
BingoBoingo: Fuck that. My thinkpad isn't to heavy to carry a walking around wallet. Do you think I'm some sort of fairy or something.
Mats_cd03: make a clone of that and have the company sell the cards along with prepaid credit cards refillable with bitcoin

Mats_cd03: huh
Mats_cd03: i feel like i'm talking to a really smart robot
jayk: nope
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: Look into S.NSA which is a joint venture of mircea and stan. Look at all of the inconveniences security imposes. Can you imagine how small the sctual audience for such things is
Mats_cd03: its exactly as secure as regular credit cards are
BingoBoingo: The initial price for 1 Cardano they quoted was 0.3 BTC roughly at $100/BTC. I dunno, but I imagine at $10,000/BTC they could comfortably keep the price at 0.3BTC
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: Secure as regular credit cards is nothing to be proud of
Mats_cd03: nobodys taking on any new kind of risk
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: Actually they are taking on older kinds of risk with BTC
Mats_cd03: its insurable but it interfaces bitcoin with the rest of the world
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: Who other than Floyds is insuring BTC today?
Mats_cd03: i believe theres a good number of people who would like to spend money online but can't because they dont have a credit or debit card
BingoBoingo: Right and they can keep some token amount of BTC in Multibit or get a fucking prepaid credit card
BingoBoingo: (By Multibit I mean the only serious version 0.5.11)
Mats_cd03: theres a revolution in payments just lurking
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: And the revolution in store of value will probably eclipse it
Mats_cd03: i believe you
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: I just blew an 0.32 into my personal entertainment device.
Mats_cd03: i plan to spend my bitcoin on nice things when i'm an older man
BingoBoingo: If I am this drunk and eloquent. If I make you think twice at all. What hope do you have of facing competent sober and dedicated competition.
Mats_cd03: like a trip to the edge of space, a tesla utility truck perhaps
BingoBoingo: No
Mats_cd03: id love an electric truck
Mats_cd03: that'd be godly
KRS1: BingoBoingo you should go gamble some btc
KRS1: i do my best work when im drunk
Mats_cd03: actually id love to own a car period
BingoBoingo: KRS1: I just I priced all of the risk for today I am going to buy. Drunkeness and Disciple don't have to be exclusive.
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: Lithium batteries are too expensive for jsut casual use
Mats_cd03: what do you mean casual use
Mats_cd03: tesla's battery management seems to hold up to 12,000mi/yr for wear just fine
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: I mean with perfect cars Lithium batteries, even the fancy polymer sort degrade substantially in the first two years of use.
Mats_cd03: its pretty serious but still worth it
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: Maybe some people routinely drive far.
Mats_cd03: a study ive seen shows that the battery remains about 85% capacity after 100k mi
BingoBoingo: Miles might be a great measure for time and distance, but in the case of batteries years is probably the best measure.
BingoBoingo: I say this only being partially informed on the battery issue and finding Renata silver oxide batteries to be near a miracle.
Mats_cd03: i think its 70% capacity at 50k mi in five years
Mats_cd03: electric cars are a great revolution for urban areas
BingoBoingo: I think 100 mg of lithium in some syzzyrip is more fun though
KRS1: i'd rather have the morphine or opiates thank you
BingoBoingo: Anyways I tend not to get cars newer than 10 years old because I like a sound motor with some history
KRS1: like..i gotta make it out to thailand maybe see chaang noi
BingoBoingo: KRS1: Don't knock shit before you try it.
KRS1: seems fun there
KRS1: lithium is that shit they give to mental patients isnt it
Mats_cd03: BPD
BingoBoingo: Anyways KRS1 100mg is way under what any mental patient would get. People just can't be that anorexic
KRS1: ah microdose
KRS1: i am in a good position to make some damn good sizzup actually lol just realized it
BingoBoingo: Going off of a calulator right here 2300 mg would take me to the minimum therapeutic dose for my weigt and alcohol tolerance
BingoBoingo: Actually I'd prolly get Mr Drive through Lincoln involved first
KRS1: thats the thing i'd have to figure out how to do those measurements to make something decent
BingoBoingo: KRS1: If you have to ask you are not qualified to find people to make such measurements

KRS1: haha
BingoBoingo: Imma bake a cake
KRS1: all i'd have to do is substitute the promethezine for morphine i have
KRS1: that would make for a great relaxing weekend
BingoBoingo: Orally dosing morphine seems like a waste
KRS1: why? I tried it..makes me just want to sleep
KRS1: so it sux so i need something with it
KRS1: no euphoria
KRS1: not sure why
KRS1: it does say on it 'for opioid tolerant'
BingoBoingo: Well, taking morphine orally you lose roughly 90% of the active drug product and get a lot of that 90% converted to undesirable drug product.
BingoBoingo: You would get gypped even more if you tried Dilaudid or heroin orally
KRS1: oh jeez..is it because of the metabolism or reuptake
BingoBoingo: KRS1: Neither.

KRS1: this girl i party with says the same thing, actually its a joke now she has to run to the bathroom within a few minutes then she's good lol

KRS1: nice bait

BingoBoingo: With a 3-4 week lead time to get prophylactic antibitotics and sutures I'd probably price the first self extracted molar at 300 BTC and a pull a second at 100 BTC with 75 BTC for a third and 65 BTC for a fourth if I can stay awake that long given what sedation would be necessary.

BingoBoingo: or maximum
BingoBoingo: My point in this KRS1 Is establishing at what point at which BTC payment would be enough that I would procure the materials to do such an act to myself.
BingoBoingo: A serious WoT rating would be required though considering... The consequences of nonpayment could be very expensive.
BingoBoingo: KRS1: I dunno if you have internalized how important this WoT thing is yet, but it is pretty hige.
BingoBoingo: More than Bitcoin and imporatant and enforced WoT changes society.
BingoBoingo: It chnges society so much I would pull one of my molars for a 300BTC reward.
BingoBoingo: And you don't even know if I need the BTC or merely would like the BTC
BingoBoingo: And since this is Bitcoin fuckers like Jimmothy might do thigs like offer 0.01 BTC per molar.
BingoBoingo: What BTC allows though is the freedom to negotiate terms.
BingoBoingo: If the higest bidder for my molars is Jimmothy at 0.01 BTC per tooth and his kidneys are worth a full BTC... Fill in the fucking blanks
KRS1: yea
KRS1: i haven't thought about wot..i suppose it could be..dont know much about it, but i suppose the bots keep a centralized record?
KRS1: I have already started working on my rating. I never traded otc so I never had a use for it and I also lost my last gpg key and started a new one.
BingoBoingo: KRS1: What are you on right nao
pankkake: you would be competing with people who have to remove their teeth anyways
KRS1: Well, I've been drinking..partying a little dont want to get too specific.
BingoBoingo: pankkake: Who says mine don't need removed either. I'm not offering to merely sell a removal. I am offering to sell a spectacle.
pankkake: the price of a kidney has a precedent though, it's worth an iPad: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/chinese-teen-sells-kidney-to-buy-iphone-ipad/

pankkake: despite them being generally healthier? :)
pankkake: well maybe not the chinese
BingoBoingo: Yeah, How do I know their parts can survive the stress of being me?
pankkake: KRS1: he actually got more but buying the ipad was the motivation; but that sells less news. still, idiotic
KRS1: would have been a great flip
BingoBoingo: I dunno, thinking about people I could hire as support to prevent a dead's man switch.... I could probably pull all 4 of my molars.

pankkake: lol
BingoBoingo: pankkake: I also don't know if people realize by invoking adequate WoT how closely that would circle the wagons
BingoBoingo: Also pricing Buttcoins got incredibly boring. Let's price tooth coins. Next year we can price VITAL organ coins.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 3 @ 0.48600687 = 1.458 BTC [+] {3}
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 4806 @ 0.00100075 = 4.8096 BTC [+]
BingoBoingo: Still, if for the premium over rando brown kid mircea or jurov would be willing to buy a video of me pulling teeth out of myself... For 300 BTC... Do I seem so Drunk I would be too stupid to take the offer?
BingoBoingo: I merely set the line that a tooth coin can't be worth more than 300 BTC
pankkake: the issue is that "people in the wot" and "interested to watch stupid shit" might not intersect
BingoBoingo: pankkake: I wasn't the first buyer of buttcoins.
BingoBoingo: Also by offering my own teeth for sale I am not offering a minimum but a maximum
BingoBoingo: As far as prices go
BingoBoingo: Also with the oppressive price I offer I additionally demand that no less than three week lead time to get supportive medications.
BingoBoingo: I am very sure india can go much cheaper
BingoBoingo: I seriously (maybe) hope no one wants any of my four molars.
BingoBoingo: I merely want a price cap to exist in this market
jurov: i offer one for 500BTC
jurov: *price cap blown*
BingoBoingo: jurov: You mean cap raised. I am nao the lowest bidder
BingoBoingo: And jurov is that 500 for the first tooth or 500 for all of the molars?
jurov: for one
jurov: but you know, how it works on otc. who is online makes the deal
BingoBoingo: Sure.
BingoBoingo: And Voluntarism makes all of the terms negotiable.
jurov: i just hope some impatient teeth collector will be online with me while you're away

BingoBoingo: jurov: I have half a kilogram of active ingredient of Indian market generic Viagra that would make you think several times about that, because that is like months of uninterupted rape.
jurov: how does it relate to teeth market liquidity?
BingoBoingo: Not necessarily for you jurov but for collector who can't care to read logs
BingoBoingo: and spot the lower offer.
BingoBoingo: I also have huge teeth
jurov: the tooth i'm selling is 30% metal, rare piece
BingoBoingo: Sounds structurally unsound
jurov: my dentist wanted to prove something to herself or wth
jurov: after half hour of arduous work, she shown me the model how the plumb look
jurov: i was O.O
BingoBoingo: Maybe I am just a gambler who prices the risk of making this offer an acceptable price for getting 8 teeth plugged with metal?
jurov: 8 teeth would be B3000
BingoBoingo: I mean at the start I begin from the position of being down 8 teeth
pankkake: is it precious metal?
pankkake: my crown isn't :(
jurov: is amalgam precious? i think not
BingoBoingo: pankkake: Honestly from my research I might prefer mercury
pankkake: oh, certainly not. and that's now a big part of my teeth
BingoBoingo: amalgam incluges elements tha tused to be precious until mercury
pankkake: the issue with older filling techniques is metals interacting with each other
BingoBoingo: Then there's the part where trying to be a survivable negatiator I haven't disclosed the lower bounds of my offer yet.
BingoBoingo: pankkake: According to the brothers newer fillings have issues as well
pankkake: from my experience, it's harder to make them stay in place
BingoBoingo: To take this offer I'd have to figure out how to make video chat work anyway.
jurov: lower bound? go to any homeless, ask him how much for 1 tooth
jurov: 5c ?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 10 @ 0.48 = 4.8 BTC [-]
BingoBoingo: jurov: Sure. Homoless does it for that. I wouldn't want less than a Dodge Challenger though. I'm trying to build a market. Like Buttcoins had.
jurov: market would be hard if the tooth aren't fungible
BingoBoingo: Teeth are most fungible though. More importantly teeth are hard to forge.
BingoBoingo: Like fresh Coinbases
jurov: in any case, my metal one deserves higher price because rarity
BingoBoingo: Teeth are scarce by their nature.
BingoBoingo: And metal doesn't increase the value of teeth anymore than plugs of semen increase the value of leaded crystal glassware.
punkman: didn't they manage to grow some teeth in a lab?
jurov: plugs of semen aren't work of the Art
BingoBoingo: punkman: Do you want 1/4 ounce of molar and half a pound of supporting tumor living in your shoulder
BingoBoingo: jurov: Art is fickle like that
BingoBoingo: Semen on canvas is fine.

BingoBoingo: Semen in Scotch not so much.
BingoBoingo: I almost feel like I am going to be so pissed when I sober up on Monday and someone accepted the tooth deal I just offered.
pankkake: so cointerra is shipping… but with worse specs than promised
BingoBoingo: pankkake: As far is I know Buttfury is the only exception to that trend
BingoBoingo: Either way Garr is super scams
BingoBoingo: The scariest thing about that tooth proposition I made however is that I know I am not capable of drinking enough to totally numb the pain.
BingoBoingo: Like... I can get super drunk, but I can't even get drunk enough to dull enui at all.
pankkake: pain is overrated. well, unless it's so painful you faint, which can be problematic for what you want to achieve
jurov: why dull?
jurov: let's life be colorful, sharp and (sometimes) painful
BingoBoingo: jurov: I made some mistakes... like grad school
BingoBoingo: pankkake: That is why I imagine having the right to designate a second who may be rule s be unable to finish the job, but who can suture and stop bleeding
jurov: what if someone offers 200btc extra for you to do without any anesthetics?
BingoBoingo: jurov: Than I don't drink before hand
jurov: yes
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7096 @ 0.00100124 = 7.1048 BTC [+] {2}
BingoBoingo: jurov: At least these would be simpler twist and pull extractions. I did the whole unsedated surgical thing and to this day can't say if surgeon is live or dead, but he filed me full of dread.
jurov: what did you do to him?
BingoBoingo: I didn't do anything. That I know of.
BingoBoingo: FOr years I imagined things though.
jurov: consider yourself lucky
jurov: all my biggest pains ever were self-inflicted
BingoBoingo: Oh my close encounters with mortality were mostly* self inflicted. My biggest pains totally came from dentists waiting Six more months to see how fucked up this mest batch of molars would grow in
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 3 @ 0.50897984 = 1.5269 BTC [+] {2}

ozbot: TIL Most US Bank branches will only allow you to withdrawal less than $5,000 (cash) in a given week
nubbins`: i was thinking about this, there's a stipulation at both of the banks i deal with here in canada that you must give your branch at least 24 hours notice before large withdrawals
nubbins`: but i mean really. guy thinks each building holds enough cash on-hand to just dole out $20k to each customer all day?

KRS1: haha
KRS1: ref- banks and that reddit thread, US banks I think have been like that for a long time
KRS1: I cashed out $30K once and just had to give them a day's notice for them to get the cash on hand..i didnt answer any questions..had no problems.

TATdoesReno: “They’re not in my mind an example of hubris as much as they are an example of companies trying to treat their staff more generously than they could actually afford.”

mircea_popescu: TATdoesReno as graham i think summed it up, the dotcom bubble consisted of the following process : noob company bamboozles some backers for financing, goes and drops all that into yahoo's lap for advertising.
mircea_popescu: revenue in yahoo fuels the impression there's a web revolution happening, which keeps the investors "investing"
mircea_popescu: a year later, with 0 roi on all the "investment", yahoo is left as a behemoth without a business model.
TATdoesReno: hence google's being hellbent on diversification
TATdoesReno: people crying over them buying Nest are so dumb
mircea_popescu: pankkake a workstation only has value if you have people sitting there, working on something.

mircea_popescu: course, amusingly enough, if btctalk wasn't run by kids it could have become that yahoo.
mircea_popescu: but rain happens for naught in the desert.
TATdoesReno: they are probably left with more coin for having not done that, as they woulda got all wrapped up in pretending to have a real business
TATdoesReno: this way they just keep it simple with forum auctions
TATdoesReno: whats he got by now? 5000btc?
mircea_popescu: they're bit players.

CiPi: www.youtube.com/watch?v=o66FUc61MvU
pankkake: mircea_popescu: oh, right. anyway, that's not how it should work; hire guys, ask them which chair they want
TATdoesReno: lotsa a chatter that the mtgox bank run is finally engorged for action
mircea_popescu: for curiosity sake, other than renting cars for the day, did bitpay actually publish its figures finally ?
TATdoesReno: i think so
TATdoesReno: somehting like $300k per mo?
mircea_popescu: well, so what did they make in 2013 ?
mircea_popescu: 300k per mo in december only or 3-4 mn in 2013 ?
TATdoesReno: i dunno, you could ask mr guppy
mircea_popescu: ;;ask guppy yo ^
gribble: Error: "ask" is not a valid command.
mircea_popescu: anyway.
TATdoesReno: probly Nov/Dec figures
mircea_popescu: and is that payments processed or their own net revenue ?

TATdoesReno: Scientists, increasingly able to detect minuscule amounts of compounds, have begun to test sewage to gauge communities' use of illegal drugs. When people take drugs, they are either unchanged or the body turns them into metabolites before they're excreted."The amphetamine levels go through the roof during finals," Burgard said.
mircea_popescu: this should make a nice anti-nsa-spyon on reddit

asciilifeform: TATdoesReno: for this to fit in the spirit of the nsa funfest, it'd have to be something like 'toilets discovered to contain embedded drug sensors and cell modems, rat you out'
asciilifeform: this scenario is not as fantastic as it might appear
asciilifeform: miniature GC/MS instruments have been churned out in astounding quantity, for the 'homeland security' market (sarin sensors on subways, post-'95)

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in as far as the chinese didn't allow themselves to be 'chinese spring'-ed, it is close.
mircea_popescu: for one thing, china is extremely homogenous, with precious few exceptions. georgia and the ukraine however are both quite distinct nations from the muscovy 'rus

asciilifeform: fact is, every mega-empire has 'fault lines', along which it can be cleaved, whether by 'natural' decay, or external 'help.'
mircea_popescu: yes. but some great empires have them through the heart, like austro-hungary
mircea_popescu: other great empires have them through the ass.
mircea_popescu: cccp was type 1. the adventures of little boi han in tibet aren't the same bread.
asciilifeform: undefended arse can be just as lethal as heart
mircea_popescu: yes. but ass can also be beaten into submission.
mircea_popescu: anyway, not proposing some sort of grand truth here, just pointing out that the differences between the soviets and the chinese are more than the similarities.

truffles: 15 mins?
mircea_popescu: According to Claude de Rouvroy, duc de Saint-Simon, clysters were so popular at the court of King Louis XIV of France that the duchess of Burgundy had her servant give her a clyster in front of the King (her modesty being preserved by an adequate posture) before going to the comedy. However, he also mentions the astonishment of the King and Mme de Maintenon that she should take it before them.
truffles: mp i dunno
jurov: truffles: anus is full of nerve endings... it just depends how one has them wired up
truffles: rules on this matter might differ from men n women

truffles: anyways i just said it is questionable
mircea_popescu: anyway, fun fact : emergency enema is one of the best way to provide emergency fluid support for people in dire straights (massive hemorrhage etc). it's much safer than intravenous support, doesn't require sterile gear etc.
jurov: so duchess of Burgundy was in need of emergency hydration, it's clear now
