mircea_popescu: statistically, the fund will do well sometime.
mircea_popescu: they have nothing to do with it.
mircea_popescu: similarly here : if you throw money around at some point good things may happen. just because marketeers imagine they have a monopoly on money beng thrown around
mircea_popescu: doesn't give them license to imagine good things happening are a marketing event
mike_c: so you're saying you weren't sure it would work, so you shouldn't get full credit.

mircea_popescu: We are legit and we do everything to make it the most secure & safe marketplace ever.
mircea_popescu: I know, we are not looking very legit but if we get some help with popular sites like yours, then everyone will notice how legit we are.
mircea_popescu: Currently we advertise on pages like TORSEARCH.

mircea_popescu: a ok.

ThickAsThieves: another pm "May I ask what are your plans with this coin, are you gonna take it seriously ?"
ThickAsThieves: what does that even mean?
ThickAsThieves: What would my difference in behavior be if I were serious vs. not serious?
Duffer1: the coin wouldn't exist vs the coin does exist
mircea_popescu: it does matter.
mircea_popescu: in fact, from a game theory perspective, the total dollar value of your comittment sets his maximum comitment in turn
mircea_popescu: the discount rate of commitment is a market variable, roughly analoguous to the risk free rate in an economy
mircea_popescu: and jesus fuck i've spelled commitment each possible way

mircea_popescu: is this good ?
kakobrekla: looks like fuck you
kakobrekla: srs
kakobrekla: middlefinger.
mircea_popescu: lol kinda ya
herbijudlestoids: the simplest story the graph tells is that a gambler could bet on any 20 tick bar and more likely expect a positive return than negative one
herbijudlestoids: it also tells other stories ;)
mircea_popescu: so basically "it's going mostly up" ?
herbijudlestoids: for example, if there is a 20 tick bar with a -2% return, you should bet against it
herbijudlestoids: because its highly unlikely that the next bar will be also a -2% return bar or even a -1% return bar, etc
herbijudlestoids: this is just preliminary play info until i can get more sample size
herbijudlestoids: we are at 155 ticks total
mircea_popescu: did you truncate past -2/+2 or just never happened ?
herbijudlestoids: no i dont truncat its automatically bucketed
herbijudlestoids: so whatever tails you see are the best/worst of the distribution
mircea_popescu: a
herbijudlestoids: definitely starting to look more like the levy distributions that im used to in other stocks
mike_c: i hate technical analysis, so excuse my stupid question: wtf is a 20 tick bar?
herbijudlestoids: its a different way of plotting the data instead of price/time its price/arbitrary divisions of price
herbijudlestoids: 20 ticks == 20 trades

mike_c: so if a stock trades down for 20 ticks, you're saying buy it or sell it?
mircea_popescu: you gotta catch one of those events
mircea_popescu: (select month)
herbijudlestoids: im not really saying anything based on a 155 tick sample size
mike_c: right, but if you were
mircea_popescu: lol
herbijudlestoids: on avg? yea bet against the down
mike_c: hm. just watch out for those head & shoulder patterns, i hear they're rough.
herbijudlestoids: it doesnt have to trade down all 20 ticks, right? just a - return
herbijudlestoids: lol h&s
herbijudlestoids: this isnt really technical analysis so much as quantitative analysis
herbijudlestoids: there is a big difference
Vexual: no hypothesis?
mircea_popescu: no, we'll just insult your crackpottery regardless
mircea_popescu: listen to that, numbers and zodiacs!
herbijudlestoids: TA guy will buy and sell based on ...for example h&s pattern...QA guy will analyse exactly what a h&s pattern is, expected returns, failure rates etc
herbijudlestoids: one sec someone at door
Vexual: cops
mircea_popescu: lol.
mircea_popescu: cops, hookers or pizza.
Vexual: trifecta
kakobrekla: hooker looking like cop bringing pizza
kakobrekla: id have that.
herbijudlestoids: lemme give you example, this is TA: http://finviz.com this is QA: http://thepatternsite.com/
herbijudlestoids: i mostly spend time on SSRN and thewholestreet.com tho
mike_c: your QA site is talking about h&s
mike_c: http://thepatternsite.com/BustHSB.html
ozbot: Bulkowski's Busted Head-and-Shoulders Bottoms
mircea_popescu: lol
herbijudlestoids: yes, but hes *tested* it over ~5000 stocks and multiple parameters etc
mike_c: If price fails to drop more than 10% below the bottom of the head-and-shoulders bottom, then it could be forming a double bus
herbijudlestoids: data going back ~30 years adjusted for bias
mike_c: *double bust
kakobrekla: lolz
herbijudlestoids: and what does it say about success rate of this pattern mike_c?
herbijudlestoids: lowwww
mike_c: ohh, so if you find patterns in a random walk, then they must be valid going forward
herbijudlestoids: wut? no...
herbijudlestoids: think of that site like mythbusters
herbijudlestoids: ...sheesh nevermind
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids his question is simply this : both qa and ta rely on a fundamental predictive presumption.
mircea_popescu: which is equally incorrect for both
mircea_popescu: so now, how do you insulate from that problem ?
mike_c: yeah, like i said :)
herbijudlestoids: whats the presumption? you lost me
mircea_popescu: that future data relates to past data.
herbijudlestoids: oh right :D
mircea_popescu: predictive. ie, that somehow a numeric manipulation of the past yields the future.
herbijudlestoids: mostly through the use of adaptive algorithms, for me, personally
mircea_popescu: can you see why that won't impress him ?
herbijudlestoids: i am not interested in impressing, im interested in consistent double digit returns with low vol
herbijudlestoids: ~10-20%pa is good
mike_c: apply your quant to JD and see what you can predict
herbijudlestoids: whats JD?
mircea_popescu: just dice, a dice site.
mircea_popescu: .jd
mircea_popescu: hm what was the command ?
herbijudlestoids: is it a listed stock somewhere? or do you mean apply it to bets on the site itself? i couldnt see it in my mpex data
Vexual: bot is mining atc
kakobrekla: !jd
assbot: Just-Dice stat: 0 BTC profit, 0.0k BTC invested, 0.00 mio bets, 0.00 mio BTC wagered
kakobrekla: or what
herbijudlestoids: the simplest betting strategy is to bet on the low volatility bets, i.e. those that have a low payoff but high probability of succeeding
kakobrekla: SCAM.
herbijudlestoids: most gamblers cant beat that strategy
mircea_popescu: whgat ?!
mike_c: whoa. jd is broke
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 28750 @ 0.00090799 = 26.1047 BTC [-]
kakobrekla: he changed ips
kakobrekla: apparently
mircea_popescu: o
kakobrekla: i had direct access to his server
kakobrekla: for assbot
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids jd is a dice site. people gamble on it. its house edge is 1%. the returns it pays investors vary wildly.
mircea_popescu: you can bet on any self-chosen odds, including 95% for a 4% gain or w/e.
mike_c: point being, you could backtest and find patterns that would look profitable but are in fact completely irrelevant.
mircea_popescu: people do, all the time, actually.
mircea_popescu: about half the time they work.
mike_c: like people at a baccarat table marking player vs banker
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 15500 @ 0.00090799 = 14.0738 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: anyway, nothing wrong with an actual quant.
herbijudlestoids: i dont really look for any form of complex pattern
mircea_popescu: too many tas in bitcoin as it is.
herbijudlestoids: im looking for robustness and simplicity
Vexual: the lucky chap claimed to have spotted it when he took jd for thousands
mircea_popescu: Vexual the first time it happened it spooked doog to all hell.
herbijudlestoids: if its a regular dice site i would say just bet using kelly criterion
herbijudlestoids: hard to outperform that
Vexual: yeah i dont doubt that mp
mircea_popescu: i wonder if im the oldest net positive jd gambler
mircea_popescu: if memory serves i was up 50 btc or so, whenever that was
mircea_popescu: prolly last syummer ? when did it launch
mike_c: https://just-dice.com/roll/1
mike_c: 2013-06-19
mircea_popescu: aha. yeah.
herbijudlestoids: hmm ok i just looked, id make bets with 60% chance to win
herbijudlestoids: and adjust bet size by kelly criterion
herbijudlestoids: done
mircea_popescu: by kc you should actually invest not bet. ☟︎
Vexual: is doog on wot? who's he tight with?
mircea_popescu: kc on a negative ev is negative.
mircea_popescu: Vexual yes. me for instance.
Vexual: ah

mike_c: herbijudlestoids: i think the more analysis the better, so i hope you keep at it. i'm just not a believer.
herbijudlestoids: hope i can show you some cool stuff when hte sample size gets bigger
Vexual: trade it herbi
mircea_popescu: night all.
kakobrekla: make a blog, post results
kakobrekla: i hear that is what people do
kakobrekla: nite mp
mike_c: sell predictions. tell half of them it's going up, the other half it's going down. next week, split your list again and repeat.
mike_c: works for sports touts
herbijudlestoids: i might buy a couple of bitcoins and bet on just dice...maybe...kind of got my heart set on buying as much MPOE as i can
mike_c: that would be better than betting on jd.

nubbins`: hi
ThickAsThieves: mornin
nubbins`: altcoin millionaire yet?
ThickAsThieves: i have to buy some first
ThickAsThieves: need to get the damn source
ThickAsThieves: being a CEO isnt as easy as I imagined!
nubbins`: heh
mircea_popescu: wow mike_c knows how the sport tout biz works. props.
mircea_popescu: incidentally, this is how idiots like keiser work, too. all the obscure web "financial experts", or bet picking experts, or so on work on the same business model : ☟︎
mircea_popescu: 1. you put up a site with some content and drive a ton of traffic to it. google ads, whatever. this is your start-up cost.
mircea_popescu: 2. you gather leads for your "special picks" list, which you contact via email. this is your stable of suckers.
mircea_popescu: 3. you split them in equal halves and give one half one pick, the other your opposite.
mircea_popescu: now you have 50% of the list worth of people who think you must be on to something.
mircea_popescu: 4. you subdivide both divisions. now you have a list of people who know you fucked up twice, this you discard ; two lists of people who think you go tone out of two. these you merge ; a most valuable list of idiots who think you got 2 out of 2. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: that latter list is your money maker. the merged list is where you mine for idiots.
mircea_popescu: this allows you to actually extract a profit out of the stupidity of people who are too stupid to realise just how stupid they are.
ThickAsThieves: now swap lists for Financial News Networks
mircea_popescu: "ll the obscure web "financial experts", or bet picking experts" :)
ThickAsThieves: surely someone has done a study
mircea_popescu: surely nobody has bothered.
ThickAsThieves: how often tv picks work out to be worse then flipping a coin
ThickAsThieves: than
mircea_popescu: because the scammors can pay, and can scream, whereas the idiots can't pay, and can scream too, and they will scream against their interest.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [HIF] 413 @ 0.00043103 = 0.178 BTC [-] {4}
mircea_popescu: you don't get a mpoe-pr in all venues.
mircea_popescu: in fact, she's so novel that people that go by "what i've seen" generally imagine she's a poor pr.
ThickAsThieves: it's also funny that this is just economics, nothing sinister
ThickAsThieves: having mpoe-pr on tv just wouldnt be as profitable ad Mad Money
mircea_popescu: well, science employed to dominate idiocy is the idiot's definition of sinister.
mircea_popescu: thinkaboutit :D
mircea_popescu: anyway, i woke up after six hour's sleep with two article ideas in my head and ended up writing a third in chat while taking a break from writing my first ;/
mircea_popescu: to think people actually BUY drugs. whatcha got endocrine glands for, ya tits ?!
ThickAsThieves: people like variety i guess
nubbins`: ^
nubbins`: my endocrine glands don't produce thc
ThickAsThieves: Hormones - The REAL Gateway Drug
mircea_popescu: nubbins` so return them and negrate your parents ? :D
ThickAsThieves: how long before negrate is in the dictionary?
ThickAsThieves: ;;ud negrate
nubbins`: ;:rate mom -1 bad glands
ThickAsThieves: negrate
ThickAsThieves: (N) 1. An ungrateful person, behaving as if they were entitled to everything. 2. A white person behaving as if they were black.
ThickAsThieves: (V) 1. To treat someone of the same color with the disrespect of racial discrimination. 2. To disregard a respectable black person because of their skin color
ThickAsThieves: verb: give a negative rating to a posting or a definition in Urbandictionary (thumbs down)
nubbins`: huh.
mircea_popescu: dude so meta and self absorbed and awareness rasing this.
ThickAsThieves: it is pretty on point considering your efforts to clearly define niggers.txt
mircea_popescu: lol
pankkake: "difficulty" : 1024.00000000 harsh

ThickAsThieves: btw nubbins I really like that art video you shared
nubbins`: the guy's very earnest
ThickAsThieves: the guy is nuts, but it's a great mind opener
nubbins`: maybe a bit obsessed with scarlett johansson
ThickAsThieves: hehe
nubbins`: but he makes some surprisingly lucid points
nubbins`: like how there are no "problems" in art
ThickAsThieves: his convinction and consistency made it easy to follow along on something so abstract
mircea_popescu: did i miss this ?
nubbins`: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2YLZc_gDMM
ThickAsThieves: i suspect the editing floor contains some less respectable moments though
nubbins`: haha
nubbins`: freakouts
nubbins`: the part where he goes on about whether a piece is "finished" or not is good, too
nubbins`: gestures to a piece
nubbins`: "is this finished now?"
nubbins`: makes a yellow mark on it
mircea_popescu: wow he's camera shy
nubbins`: "now?"
ThickAsThieves: oh yeha that was awesome
ThickAsThieves: the kink article made me think of this
ThickAsThieves: seems the answer to all these queries is Embrace Chaos
ThickAsThieves: why is change so hard for the Old Republican
ThickAsThieves: but so easy for Kink High?
nubbins`: meese said it, all politicians must resign
mircea_popescu: lmao. dictatorship of x comes, "alles super"
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3000 @ 0.00091008 = 2.7302 BTC [-]
nubbins`: the bit about symbols, too
nubbins`: carl jung would have loved to meet this guy
nubbins`: or maybe the other way around? heh
mircea_popescu: lol alles relic vient kaputt machen
mircea_popescu: ahahaha so basically chimp guy wants no history
mircea_popescu: he just wants to play
ThickAsThieves: everything is a toy!
mircea_popescu: i rest the case on the representation of southpark. this guy is mj, and i'm ignorant.
ThickAsThieves: he musta went to Kink high
nubbins`: all art is play!
mircea_popescu: i doubt he has.
mircea_popescu: i have, and it changes your perspective in a particular way.
ThickAsThieves: you are bias
ThickAsThieves: :)
mircea_popescu: yup.
mircea_popescu: i think when i die, i may become the god of bias.
nubbins`: ThickAsThieves, there are some other good vice art talks too
nubbins`: the one about bongout is what inspired me to start silkscreening on paper
nubbins`: lel, related videos reminded me of another series they do
nubbins`: where they feed some poor freelancer some acid and get him to cover an event
nubbins`: like a dog show
ThickAsThieves: i'll check it out, but if i get back into printing in any way I will be mad at you
mircea_popescu: wait, is the fbi investigating vice, the drug marketplace yet ?
nubbins`: heh
nubbins`: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gi_-PddFCKU
nubbins`: ^westminster dog show on lsd
nubbins`: there were points in that video where i legitimately felt bad for the guy
ThickAsThieves: Bilk Road
mircea_popescu: basically how did they call that thing where they paid homeless people to be abused ?
nubbins`: bumfights?
mircea_popescu: it's progressing, now you don't even spend money, just give them some crack
mircea_popescu: and pretend it's art or w/e.
mircea_popescu: funny how ideology works.
nubbins`: fun fact, you don't need to pay homeless people to take crack
mircea_popescu: fun fact : homeless people will refuse money, even in high amounts for easy jobs.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile, homeless people will not refuse drugs, even cheap shitty drugs, and do anything for some.
mircea_popescu: somehow being paid is demeaning, being drugged is empowering (this year)
nubbins`: guy in video: "things that aren't necessarily interesting become extremely interesting"
nubbins`: heh
nubbins`: man, i've already seen this video, and watching it again is making me anxious for him
ThickAsThieves: Is that a term? Doggers? No! Dog People!
ThickAsThieves: even they know niggers.txt
virtuals: mircea_popescu, hey, would quote "a Bitcoin billionaire from Romania" like to donate to a good cause, here is more information: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=263445.msg4873516#msg4873516
mircea_popescu: ty
Apocalyptic: labcoin complaint heh
mircea_popescu: virtuals have you read http://trilema.com/2013/the-anatomy-of-a-scam/ back in august last year ?
Duffer1: alberto about to spend a reallly long time in jail
Apocalyptic: you know mpoe-pr warned it was a scam from the beginnin
nubbins`: 5 bucks says virtualspade takes the money and runs
virtuals: or dont you like to have anyting to do with labcoin, even helping to put alberto to jail
mircea_popescu: virtuals answer the questionm will you.
virtuals: I read that a long time ago, whet question
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 1 @ 0.24310363 BTC
mircea_popescu: so then there it is : i already donated to those idiots more than what their skin is on average worth.
mircea_popescu: some took the donation, some didn't.
mircea_popescu: it's how these things work.
mircea_popescu: those that didn't don't get a 2nd round today, it'd be unfair to their betters, that did take it.
virtuals: ok, thank
virtuals: *thanks
mircea_popescu: np
mircea_popescu: but since it's a topic, i wonder if anyone were to make a list of all the supposedly big businesses in btc ordered by the total btc sum they donated to exposing scams,
mircea_popescu: how far on it my say 500 on harnett would put me.
Apocalyptic: what happened with that harnett btw ?
mircea_popescu: he sunk.
Apocalyptic: he just defaulted and disappeared
Apocalyptic: ?
mircea_popescu: yeah.
Apocalyptic: i've read some interesting article about him a while ago
Apocalyptic: written by a supposed investor saying how confident he was, cause Patrick got too much to loose if he ran
mircea_popescu: derp.
mircea_popescu: at the time it was a big deal, people really bought it.
nubbins`: "what good is piles of btc if you don't have your internet friends"
mircea_popescu: more importantly, at the time it was really common, to the point of being a rule, that nobody made public default complaints
mircea_popescu: making it insanely easy for the scammers
mircea_popescu: afaik mpoe-pr going all public with it was absolutely the first case a default was prosecuted in public in btc
mircea_popescu: it set some standards, changed some things, etc.
Apocalyptic: because they were ashamed of being scammed ?
mircea_popescu: yup
mircea_popescu: and because they're generally immoral fuckwits, who'd rather suck up to the scammer as if he were their daddy
mircea_popescu: "can i have at least a little back ?!?!?!"
mircea_popescu: i quoted some stuff from the scamdarknet earlier, pretty much illustrating this style.
nubbins`: "i'm in a really bad spot financially right now"
pankkake: this is still going on :(
jborkl: Just the tip ok? Don't shove it all the way
mircea_popescu: jborkl i got liek 19 inches of pure love throbbin' here :D
jborkl: Lol
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 2 @ 0.1508 = 0.3016 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: pankkake course it is. like infection you know ? there's always going to be bacteria on your skin
mircea_popescu: the idea is for it not to be in the liver or w/e
mircea_popescu: complete sterility is apparently a serious health risk.
nubbins`: not even apparently
mircea_popescu: how you mean ?
nubbins`: how you gonna digest!
mircea_popescu: you only eat shit you don't need help with
nubbins`: pure glucose is a tough diet
mircea_popescu: ikr ?
pankkake: lack of bacteria in modern diets makes digesting harder
nubbins`: speaking of food
pankkake: eat more dirt
nubbins`: i read an article about gut flora of natural vs c-section births recently
nubbins`: was interesting
mircea_popescu: pankkake actually it's possible that the recent rise in ass licking as a sexual practice is fundamentally driven by the need to compensate for a lack of bacterial load in the digestive tract.
mircea_popescu: i wrote about this at some point, in romanian.
pankkake: lol
ThickAsThieves: maybe thats all eating is, humans trying to find the perfect mix of microbes to balance the gut for immortality
nubbins`: ThickAsThieves, it really is
mircea_popescu: possibly.
jborkl: Well it didn't work out for the human centipede
nubbins`: consider that a human is just a bacteria colony surrounded by a fleshy support system
mircea_popescu: lol jborkl
nubbins`: bacteria colony doesn't do so well, fleshy support system suffers
mircea_popescu: nubbins` that view is not unlike the view that human society is basically women trying to survive men fucking their shit up.
mircea_popescu: popular with some nutty groups :D
nubbins`: mircea_popescu: well, kill all the women and see how far you get :P
mircea_popescu: no need to kill them.
decimation: So it seems answer to "why bitcoin?" is "gentlemen prefer blondes" or "choose the black pawn"
decimation: seems legit
nubbins`: i wonder how much of humans' love for cheese, yogurt, cured meats, fermented dishes, etc etc is bacteria telling us what to eat
mircea_popescu: decimation well, if the q is "why bitcoin rather than the altcoin" then yes.
decimation: And if the q is "why bitcoin rather than the fiat" also yes?
ThickAsThieves: is there a religion for this, worshiping bacteria and our role as its protectorate?
mircea_popescu: that q is a lot more complex, but did you read discussion with herbi a few days back ?
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves only in sf afaik.
nubbins`: ThickAsThieves, it's much more subliminal than religion
nubbins`: is there a religion for being selfish?
mircea_popescu: yes, actually.
nubbins`: heh, as soon as i hit enter
nubbins`: "wait..."
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: so since y'all are a lot more knowledgeable than me : is there a manga/hentai/whatever you call the weird cartoons which is predicated on females being decerebrated at birth, kept on live support systems, used as reproductive furniture ?
mircea_popescu: apparently i broke his client.
Duffer1: the only thing i can think of that comes close isn't a manga

decimation: Yes. I read it earlier and now I re-read it. So the transcendental nature of Bitcoin describes its ontology. Bitcoin's effect on the world of humans is more like that of a soveirgn state.
ThickAsThieves: someone wants to buy some Altcoin: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=443108.msg4874054#msg4874054
pankkake: I don't know, I don't think I kept those. I've seen a few novels too. crazy stuff
mircea_popescu: decimation even without going into all of that : bitcoin has massive advantages over fiats. chief among which its fungibility.
decimation: Much like Mr. Yarvin's Goldenstein : http://unqualified-reservations.blogspot.com/2008/02/return-to-castle-goldenstein-gold.html
mircea_popescu: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=443108.msg4873881#msg4873881 << this post is epic.
decimation: Except Bitcoinstein has a much brighter looking future than Goldenstein
mircea_popescu: so succint, yet so universally representative.
mircea_popescu: decimation now you're making me read more of that stuff.
mircea_popescu: it always pisses me off, because the kid is clearly bright and yet clearly wilfully stupid. anyway.
decimation: Sorry. He has his good moments, but I agree he is a spaz
ThickAsThieves: :)
ThickAsThieves: getting my hands on the source will be Altcoin's "2 weeks"
decimation: Bitcoin is immune from legal tender law. Unlike fiat, no bank will be able to force depositors to accept bank credit (in bitcoin) as fungible with actual Bitcoin
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [COG] 6 @ 0.04899931 = 0.294 BTC [+] {2}
mircea_popescu: well this article does a lot to explain his psychological drive in being so bitcoin-butthurt
mircea_popescu: anyway, the arguments he makes are mostly sound and generally banal, it just so happens they didnt work out for gold.
mircea_popescu: the reason they didn't is that gold has a negative mining return.
mircea_popescu: what i mean by this is : romania sits on a mountain of gold. it was the main source of minable gold for the roman empire, when they finally conquered dacia the local king's treasury financed 100 days of straight games with plenty left over.
mircea_popescu: the austrians mined it, transylvania still sits on a pile of untold millions of ounces.
mircea_popescu: about ten years ago a mining group formed to cut out one certain mountain, convert it to gold (and silver, palladium, tungsten, etc etc) and pay the government 20%
mircea_popescu: (of the gold only).
mircea_popescu: they;ve been trying to push this deal for the entire decade, hiring pr, doing tv shows, paying the idiots living there fiddy bux a head to go "omfg we're dying of hunger", the works.
mircea_popescu: it never worked, to date, it'll never work to date.
mircea_popescu: my objection, and i'm confident the thing that sunk the project (not for it being mine, but for it being sound) is simply this :
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 2550 @ 0.00090452 = 2.3065 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: why bother with all the digging, all the cyanide ponds, all that, just to get gold out fo the ground, move it 500 miles south west and then... dig a hole, put it there and guard it ?
mircea_popescu: just put up a sign, National Bank of Romania Gold Vault, Rosia Montana Division on that mountain and be don with it.
mircea_popescu: it's,,, just as gold, and just as burried, where it stands.
mircea_popescu: in short : a land deed on a gold field is as good as gold itself. you have a negative incentive to actually mine it.
decimation: Indeed. Gold in the ground as ore is just as good as gold in the ground as a bar.
mircea_popescu: whereas you have a positive incentive to mine bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: so the driving force isn't bitcoin's immunity to the legal tender law,
ThickAsThieves: I actually know a guy that manages contract negotiations between governments and mines
mircea_popescu: it's bitcoin's imunity to the real estate law.
ThickAsThieves: he of course paints this as vital to their nation
mircea_popescu: bitcoin is immune to human agency, which means you can't pass a law to hinder it's fungibility.
mircea_popescu: more importantly tho... there's no rational way to represent property in yet-unmined blocks. this is so obvious it escapes notice
ThickAsThieves: but when 20-yr contracts run out, his job gets trickier
mircea_popescu: yet it;s the more important factor.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves i bet.
decimation: Right, unlike anything physical, unmined bitcoin is utterly useless
chetty: You can pass such a law, they pass unenforceable law all the time
mircea_popescu: right-o. precisely BECAUSE it is in no way physical.
ThickAsThieves: isnt everything not a thing useless?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 19084 @ 0.00090646 = 17.2989 BTC [+] {2}
mircea_popescu: or in other words, the reasons all the "experts" in old-fiat crap give for bitcoin's failure
Duffer1: law where though chetty?
mircea_popescu: are in fact its points of strength
mircea_popescu: this strengthening the chief pillar of all hermeneutics.
decimation: Right, and all the game-theory arguments about savings is really just restating Gresham's law
decimation: except bitcoin is harder than gold
decimation: Goldenstein < Bitcoinstein
mircea_popescu: indeed.
mircea_popescu: he does get a lot of mileage in wordcount out of restating the banal, but he does so in a pleasant form and this is a good thing,
mircea_popescu: you never know which exact word combo is some guy's aha moment.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, it's still just as much dicking about with shit we know.
decimation: I find the goldbug's (enemies of the fiatists) objections to bitcoin to be amusing, because they complain about the lack of physicality.
decimation: Whereas that's bitcoin's greatest strength, as you point out.
mircea_popescu: well in their defense, they just rooted for the correct principle their whole life, fighting valliantly for their sanity as an oppressed minority.
mircea_popescu: to have, within their lifetime, their cookie stolen by a newcomer...
ThickAsThieves: Old Republicans
mircea_popescu: imagine if after having pampered jesus for 30 years, the entire thing was suddenly taken over by baby allah.
mircea_popescu: fucking religious war.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves pretty much.
mircea_popescu: so i can understand why a 50 something guy with a bunch of gold bars and no functioning linux distro is fucking pissed at bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: and tbh i kinda feel for him. sadly tho, they also can't be helped, because... as tat points out, "The problem here is that you have no mechanism with which to do so, and that because language is not employed for the purpose you imagine it employed."
ThickAsThieves: and why in 15 years bitcoiners will be crying over some newer thing
Duffer1: i'd be surprised if it took 15 years
ThickAsThieves: me too
decimation: At least James Turk is smart enough to recognize a good thing when he sees it. Hopefully he will get his bitcoin exchange running at some point.
ThickAsThieves: language exists so we dont have to hit each other and grunt to communicate, just more economy at work
ThickAsThieves: probly mostly cuz female facial expressions were never well-interpreted too
mircea_popescu: possibly, tho i find female facials easier to read than males.
mircea_popescu: i suspect the reason is people tend to spend more time looking at other bits, and so lack practice.
mircea_popescu: anyway. it's not clear atm that an improvement on bitcoin is in principle possible.
ThickAsThieves: i always considered myself instinctively above average with body language
mircea_popescu: this is true of gold, too, at least up to about 2005 or so. however... it did take > 2k years with gold.
mircea_popescu: maybe 15 is short. maybe we have 250 years.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves so does everyone else.
ThickAsThieves: yeah but me more so!
mircea_popescu: those with good reason for good reason, those without good reason for d-k reasons.
decimation: www.netagio.com <-- has anyone used this exchange?

pankkake: mircea_popescu: yup
Apocalyptic: more seriously though, no idea
Duffer1: ha
mircea_popescu: pankkake make a bitbet bet as to how many 4s you get ?
pankkake: I'm not mining anything now :(
mircea_popescu: Duffer1 people generally do not wish to live in any possible world.
mircea_popescu: they have a set of worlds they'll live in, and a set of worlds they won't.
ThickAsThieves: did Altcoin burn out your chips?
pankkake: I guess the bet could be "altcoin difficulty to be exactly X", but I don't know what could be a good number
ThickAsThieves: Altcoin gets listed on Cryptsy is a better bet
Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, that implies something must have recently changed that is strong enough to shift the reality to the other category of worlds
pankkake: I think there are too many blocks per second and thus even my good finds get rejected
mircea_popescu: pankkake it could be "altcoin difficulty will be a power of 4 by bitcoin block X"
ThickAsThieves: How about this bet : Altcoin is the best altcoin. This bet resolves as Yes if the answer is No.
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic it's not necessarily true. if you won't live in a world without cunt, and right this second i turn all women's crotch into angels' how long would it be before you realise i did it ?
decimation: tat lol
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves somehow i suspect it's not getting accepted :p
ThickAsThieves: cuz your mods have no appreciation for the arts
Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, a matter of days i guess
mircea_popescu: so there you go.
ThickAsThieves: just like my schrodinger's bitbet idea
ThickAsThieves: i will see that one implemented before i die!
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves actually, strangest thing : they do! if it has my seal of approval on it, they'll do it even if it makes no sense.
mircea_popescu: now that's art.

Namworld: Weird
Namworld: Couldn't they have just changed the y for an i? Monopoli
Namworld: Would have sounded about the same as in english that way.
