benkay: thanks, mike_c!
benkay: there are no contracts, so nobody can be certain of anything.
mircea_popescu: so i bought these slightly smoked plums
mircea_popescu: omfg they're great
mircea_popescu: im reduced to one hand typing
Mats_cd03: I'll smoke your plums
mircea_popescu: this is the future of social media : tastegram
jurov: Mats_cd03 don't forget, you promised me some rimming first
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Then someone sends tastegrams which seem to be almonds, but are actually cyanide
mircea_popescu: i guess it'd have to be implemented electronically rather than chemically.
mircea_popescu: no future for 3d printing in this.
mircea_popescu: incidentally... 3d molecularbiologizing... get cartridges of all the elements, print any substance.
jurov: there are iirc 5 basic smells that can be mixed like colors
Mats_cd03: mircea_popescu: too late... Instagram _is_ tastegram
BingoBoingo: I didn't think there was much future for 3D printing beyond industries frequently needing bespoke and one-off construction
jurov: no need to 3d print molecules
mircea_popescu: that could potentially be everything tho
mircea_popescu: all the car buyers want to be... unique.
mircea_popescu: "you wouldn't download a car" ? oyestheywould.
mircea_popescu: jurov no way. i can detect more scents than colors.
jurov: yes, cuz there are much more combinations of 5 basic smells than 3 primary colors
mircea_popescu: i can actually distinguish mercaptane from ethilthiol
mircea_popescu: what the heck do you mix to go from one to the other ?
jurov: dunno. my mother explained to me mixing smells is basic physiology exercise for med students
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 2 @ 0.54729999 = 1.0946 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: fun fact : mercaptane actually is a natural byproduct of asparagus digestion in mammals. for a long time people imagined the ability to excrete it in urine is genetically dependent, as apparently not all people did it.
mircea_popescu: then it turned out that in fact yes all people do it, but the ability to SMELL it is the genetic trait
mircea_popescu: as not all people can smell it.
jurov: and yo get back to topic.. "you wouldn't download a penis" - guess what gets printed first once 3d printer appears somewhere?

mircea_popescu: from memory.

rbonestell: thanks, mircea_popescu.
rbonestell: isn't it open source?
mircea_popescu: i don't remember which it is, maybe supybot ?
rbonestell: I thought I found the source under an mpex repo on github somewhere
mircea_popescu: wasn't that mpexbot?
rbonestell: ohhhh, yeah
rbonestell: probably
mircea_popescu: yes well. not all bots are the same
mircea_popescu: just like people.

rbonestell: woah
rbonestell: I didn't read the preceding context, but daaamn- some serious hostility there.
mircea_popescu: pankkake https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=453941.msg5020847#msg5020847 this is my gift for you today
mircea_popescu: aw shit you saw it already.
mircea_popescu: my bad
jurov: what kind of master thesis paper doesn't notice the university where it is done?
jurov: just the first thing i noticed
mircea_popescu: maybe their entire country only has one university so it's kind-of redundant ?

mircea_popescu: by the way, anyone else noticed how quickly the altcoin subforum standardized ?
mircea_popescu: it's uncanny.
mircea_popescu: hashturbate.com pitythepool.com valid-error.com etc
mircea_popescu: they have an announcement format, this is what one should do a master thesis on
mircea_popescu: copy the entire altcoin subforum, define 50-100 measures, see how standardised the offerings are, do a over time survey
mircea_popescu: pure fundamental open-market research. more valuable than 99% of all economics papers to be published in 2014

nubbins`: mircea_popescu, when you say standardized, you mean the format of the announcement posts?
mircea_popescu: yeah
mircea_popescu: but not just
nubbins`: sure
mircea_popescu: the reality underneath. who said they must have "faucets" ?
mircea_popescu: what IS a faucet ?
nubbins`: you used to find the same thing in group buy threads too
mircea_popescu: why pools ? why x y z
mircea_popescu: if you look at it unbiased it's shockingly organised, and arbitrarily so
nubbins`: really it just boils down to people doing copypasta because they can't be fucked to figure out how to structure a post
mircea_popescu: the fucking threads spell Schelling like a poem
nubbins`: in their defense, why reinvent the wheel?
nubbins`: anyway, you'd suppose the rest has some sort of purpose
mircea_popescu: indeed. i was not presuming to argue, merely observe.
nubbins`: e.g. if there's no faucet, nobody but a couple miners are gonna bother to play with it
nubbins`: sure
mircea_popescu: no argument it has purpose, but the structure and therefore the convention and meaning imo far exceeds the purpose
nubbins`: there's a purpose? ;p
mircea_popescu: well obviously.
mircea_popescu: food.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 26 @ 0.00549999 = 0.143 BTC [+] {4}
nubbins`: i stepped into the altcoin announcement sub the other day. had to go back like six fuckin pages to see a thread that wasn't last updated "Today"!
mircea_popescu: ayup
nubbins`: alts are like cabbage patch kids
mircea_popescu: definitely.
mircea_popescu: and those are a linguistic artefact.
mircea_popescu: which is why i don't argue, it'd be like insisting "barracks" should be spelled "kaserne"
nubbins`: oo, canadian snowboarder just smacked his tailbone
nubbins`: "i can't even explain how difficult these tricks are" says the cbc announcer
mircea_popescu: he's just the announcer.

diametric: its hilarious
mircea_popescu: the people responsible very much going around talking about things as if.

KRS-One: i say theres much more to it than that, was going to suggest a threaded C program..but im not sure we would need so many ip addresses instead of a well known email host
KRS-One: maybe throttle the submissions a bit..idk.. any input
kakobrekla: yeah, go find something more legitimate to do
KRS-One: yeh its some grayhat bs
KRS-One: it actually is legit, he does internet marketing

theo: yeh same here the only way i now get exposed to new music is through my DJ friends and a recording label i hang at. Otherwise it would take so long to go through everything.
theo: Yeah the build up and just the lyrics "the hands of the many must join as one. and Together we will cross the river"
KRS-One: i go on undernet #mp3passion to download mp3's sometimes i watch the traffic go by and check out different stuff..kinda works for me.
KRS-One: Momma sed much better, maybe its my current mood
KRS-One: ya the build up
theo: if you ever want up and coming Australian bands i have to many of them. lol. Yeah momma sed to me is how i think all men should act. just a good set of lyrics
KRS-One: good stuff dude
theo: il send 1 other link and see what you think very different music again

Namworld: Why wouldn't it be trustable?
Namworld: It's the one with the longest history.
theo: Well the owner of the exchange is very adament that he will never be found and you can do what you like to try and track it
theo: I do realise it has a long history. But so have some of the biggest ponzi schemes
Namworld: That he will never be found? Where the heck have you read that?
kakobrekla: lulz
Namworld: He's quite public and vocal about what he does.

Namworld: I would certainly like a link for a laugh.
kakobrekla: yes, reddit, the finance cream of the crop
Namworld: Whatever those reddits thread said, I'm sure they were innacurate.
theo: I agree hence why i was asking here to see others opinions.
Namworld: The owner can be pretty provocative/be vocal with unpopular opinions.
Namworld: It gets a lot of people quite pissed about him.
theo: But at the end of the day he is pretty straight up about business?
Namworld: But as far as business goes, it's been solid.
Namworld: Longest lasting exchange. No screw ups. Pretty secure wallet too.
theo: Alright thank's i have been looking at it as an option to trade on, just hesitent as 25 BTC is not so smaller investment nowdays
Namworld: It was more fun when SatoshiDice traded on there. I have an account, that I don't use that much anymore, sadly.
Namworld: SatoshiDice is now quite dead however. And not listed anywhere anyway.
kakobrekla: theo, coinbr
theo: coinbr is that the company that lets you trade on them through them as a proxie? and only charges a fee
kakobrekla: yea jurov runs that
Namworld: Yes, you should sign up on coinbr if you don't want to put 25 BTC
Namworld: Both coinbr and mpex are in a good legal jurisdiction for that short of things.

jurov: hi all
jurov: and it's simple. if you register without referral, 0.2% goes to me
jurov: to coinbr
jurov: and having the invitation code is not compulsory, that was only for a month or so
jurov: random_cat, theo : one referral number to MPEx is there in plain sight: http://explo.yt/post/2014/01/13/MPEx%3A-The-Missing-Manual
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 1 @ 0.19376446 BTC [+]
theo: yeh i have already seen that site with the referall and manuals. Tis what got me more interested in MPEX Though i am not sure that they really offer anything i would invest into other then the derivatives scheme they offer as a baseline
jurov: well, for example both S.NSA and S.MG are making solid progress and are expected to ship imminently
jurov: but i don't know, what you want exactly?
theo: The only thing is that the profits from the website itself would have to be more then the 25 BTC i Invest and the additional funds i would invest after the origional down payment
jurov: during what timespan?
theo: Well currently i am quiet happy with havelock the only thing is that they don't have a large selection to choose from, well at least a large selection i believe could do well as buisness
theo: in the end i am a mid-long term investment. Dont usually have time for short term trading as i have a family
jurov: if you are sure havelock will be there mid-long term...then stay there
theo: What are your thought's? do you think they will?
jurov: imo they are going to end up like glbse/bf/btct, if a bit slower
theo: alright
theo: why is that?
theo: they have SFI which to me was a big thumbs up in my mind a IPO that raised 2 million
jurov: it's clear at least once cavirtex did what they did
theo: and that has 3 companies being mentioned in mass media
kakobrekla: because investing is all about mass media!
jurov: and name me some stocks there that have detailed monthly reports and clear signed agreements like mpex carries
theo: herpa derp, no it has little to do with mass media... But what i was implying is that if a incubator company that has 3 of there companies being mentioned in media a) it will do well. and b) in my mind it makes me think that there may be some more creedence to the website
theo: Honestly i can't hence why i am asking for advice and your opinions about such things
jurov: did you invest into doge, then? it has mass media powers
theo: CBTC seem pretty up front providing reports bi-monthly
theo: no i never did
theo: and never would thats a different type of investing
jurov: yes, that's one.
theo: there are only 3 companies i invest in there
theo: and the only 3 i have are the ones that seem to be transperent and have good communication.
theo: CBTC, RENT and SFI
kakobrekla: CBTC does monthly statements?
kakobrekla: that might explain "CasinoBitcoin is trading at 27 years of profits"
kakobrekla: lol
theo: bi-monthly they update the google doc
theo: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B2SWZWkGJ1V3UEo0Q0lESk5nd0k&usp=sharing the google doc they have. Updated twice a month
ozbot: CasinoBitco.in - Public
theo: https://www.havelockinvestments.com/reports.php updated each month by there company
theo: So right now it seems more like your making fun of my questions and what i think then providing any reasoning other then MPEX has been there ages and you should use my company to trade on it for my profit. Seriously great IRC.
jurov: theo can you pinpoint where i'm mocking you?
theo: <jurov> did you invest into doge, then? it has mass media powers\
theo: that to me is a jab at me, and many would take it as such
jurov: it was my honest opinion, you asked for
theo: I didn't ask about mass media or about dodge.
jurov: ...
theo: I asked about your opinion on mpex and havelock.
jurov: and you reasoned by mass media coverage
jurov: i took that almost as joke
jurov: and replied accordingly
theo: I didn't use that as any reasoning idiot read back
theo: I used the IPO of SFI as reasoning and side noted that there companies had recieved mass media.
theo: That is not reasoning. it was a side note
jurov: so it's your side noted against my "jabs" then
theo: Yawn. I came on here looking for good info and maybe a nice convo, all your providing is arguments and yes you did make a "jab" Now we are arguing semantics for no reason. I asked your's / anyone elses advice on havelock and MPEX and all i got was a hey you should use my company as thats a hefty fee
theo: now your being a real dick so putting a great vibe out for your company thanks for making sure i tell everyone never to use yours :)
jurov: no need to hyperventilate
kakobrekla: lol
theo: how does one hyperventilate on the internet?
kakobrekla: we are not here to convince you into anything
theo: I didn't say you were, i just thought people would actually be nice and maybe give advice instead of being dicks
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 718 @ 0.00086193 = 0.6189 BTC [-]
kakobrekla: o look its herby
kakobrekla: no free advice when it comes to money
theo: Actually there is a lot, no good advice is free usually
jurov: what kind of advice did you want? i say, mass media is irrelevant when coming to btc investment, you call me idiot
jurov: just because i said it in funny way
theo: Really it is irreleveant? how about go look at the company who made BTCtrader performed on the stock market the day they announced there beta ended? or how about the casino company who announced they were making a exchange? both stocks went up by 5-10% in a single day thats called mass media arround BTC affecting the world
theo: And furthering that Mass media is what has driven bitcoin to the point it is. If reddit hadn't started accepting it when they did i betchya we would not be at this point yet

theo: semantics again.
herbijudlestoids: hullo kakobrekla
herbijudlestoids: hullo jurov
herbijudlestoids: theo: what advice did you want from these dicks
theo: I was asking about havelock and MPEX. Why jurov though that havelock would go down like so many of the other security exchanges
herbijudlestoids: theo: i think the general perception around here is they are in it for the hype, ergo its unsustainable
theo: Ok so not actually to do with legal reasons etc?
jurov: because havelock does not uphold any standards and it's up to issuers. i can't say that clearer
herbijudlestoids: they list "businesses", MPex prides itself on only listing what it deems to actually have a business model
theo: jurov i think thats a bit backwards as they do have standards. Otherwise they would have a fuck load more IPO as they reject a lot as well.
theo: They just might not have good standards
theo: Ok thank you herbu
theo: herbi*
taub: ahaha i didn't even look into dogecoin closely until now
taub: but it's such a scam wow
taub: meme driven pump and dump
taub: only use is mine and sell ?
taub: unlimited cions
herbijudlestoids: theo: there have been some good examples shown iirc, you can trawl the logs if you wish
theo: will do
theo: whats your opinion herbi? are you also of the opinion that havelock will crumble and fall? The only reason i have some faith in havelock is there investment of SFI which was able to raise 2 million

herbijudlestoids: theo: no specific opinion, tho if i wanted to build an exchange it would look more like mpex and less like havelock
theo: Alright thank's :). If i wanted to build a exchange i think i would touch up on it from MPEX or at least the front end lol. And also his personal skills
herbijudlestoids: thats because you think like a very small fish
herbijudlestoids: MPEX is conceptually equivalent to a large scale exchange on the order of NYSE or CME
herbijudlestoids: the frontend is irrelevent to the end user and in those cases is absolutely not exposed
herbijudlestoids: users of the system interact with the exchange through brokerage
theo: agreed
herbijudlestoids: so? the frontend has really nothing to do with it, nor his personal skills
herbijudlestoids: hell give you a seat on the exchange for 30BTC
theo: Well i think you do miss some idea. The majority of stocks sold on the exchanges like Dow Jones or Nasdaq are used through brokerages because the majority of people do not have the technical know how on how to use a system or have the time to learn how its used. So if I were making a exchange i would do an idea of both providing one like his, with the ability to be your own brokerage and hence if people wanted charge a additio

herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: i had a small mining rig, 1.6GH/s but one day my USB hub died and difficulty was going up so i never bothered to restore the setup...tonight i thought i would plug it back in for ATC
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: well since there is no source for ATC out, its hard for me to use my little ASICs to do anything except with cgminer
herbijudlestoids: new block
mircea_popescu: yeah actually, the happenstance of btc and the particular usb implementation some miner manufacturers happened to use really exposed a lot of crap the usb manufacturers were hiding under the rug for years
ThickAsThieves: <herbijudlestoids> mircea_popescu: well since there is no source for ATC out -- source is in the thread

herbijudlestoids: ah ok, solo mining is not hard it seems, i just point cgminer to the altcoind

mircea_popescu: moiety the idea is in http://mpex.co/faq.html#13 and i didn't say anything because what am i to do, keep pasting the faq ?
mircea_popescu: but inasmuch as both you and your referrer get 5 btc, it could be argued the new account only costs 20 with a referrer. anyway.
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids you don't have 64bit installed ?! what ?
herbijudlestoids: well, the lappy only has 4gb of ram, so why bother?
mircea_popescu: o you mean the cpu is 64bit but you're using a 32bit os ?
herbijudlestoids: its a thinkpad x230, my bebbeh, i love it
herbijudlestoids: yeah
mircea_popescu: you know doing that actually slows it down because adressing and stuff ?

mircea_popescu: and mine with the rest.
mircea_popescu: so if indeed they deliver pretty much everyone mining currently is screwed.
ThickAsThieves: yes
ThickAsThieves: or, bitcoin goes to $10000
ThickAsThieves: or whatever
mircea_popescu: so basically if bitcoiners had a 1 btc budged for killing people, it'd go ~1 btc to taking out friedcat and ~0 btc to taking out a bunch of tards in suits in the us self importantly yakking about regulation or whatever the fuck.
herbijudlestoids: pankkake: that you pasted works :)
mircea_popescu: theo you obviously missed the part where mpex has about a million btc mkt cap listed, and the part where the largest ipos in the history of btc all happened on mpex
mircea_popescu: most importantly, the part you missed is http://trilema.com/2013/the-list-of-discontinued-assets-on-mpex/
ThickAsThieves: of course most of those wafers will be mining Altcoin by then, so it works out
mircea_popescu: now go ask havelock exactly what a) the total bitcoin loss from all listed and closed companies is so far with them
mircea_popescu: and b) exactly what would be the average return of an investor who put in 1 btc over a basket of everything they had a year ago.
mircea_popescu: cause if you don't daytrade and have a family those are the questions that matter, not whether someone paid random unheard of "press" outfit fiddy bux to run their bs story about nothing.
herbijudlestoids: ok solo mining :)
mircea_popescu: as far as i know, out of all the folks pretending to be into bitcoin finance, the only person who was in the press is yours truly.
mircea_popescu: seeing how we don't count reports of having been arrested, doing dope or bs press releases.
mircea_popescu: i gotta stop reading these logs ;/
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: tbh if you have been dealing with incessant queries from people with similar questions to theo then i can understand why you react the way you do to many things :P
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids it's deeper than that, i even have people to insulate me from it

mircea_popescu: you broke the alt ?!
mircea_popescu: this is wrecking!
pankkake: altcoin is too centralized!
mircea_popescu: omg thank you power ranger pancake for having fixed the blockchain with your powers!
mircea_popescu: you were like right here when you broke it and everything.
pankkake: that's how a lot of altcoins work :/ "oh we got 51% attacked again? let me fix it"
mircea_popescu: pankkake o, you weren't here back in march were you ?
pankkake: no :(
mircea_popescu: ah well. so that went like this : hearn changed the db structure in the new release without reading the old db code because fuck, he worked at google!
Apocalyptic: dat hearn...
mircea_popescu: upon push the blockchain split, all the traders on the old chain, all the fuckwits still at that point following their release cycle on a new chain
mircea_popescu: the split lasted for like half a day
mircea_popescu: and derps in -dev were all like omg you power ranger devs! you were right here! and fixed it!
mircea_popescu: my hero!
pankkake: oh, right, I remember that. didn't know it was hearn

mircea_popescu: it's so cool that pretty much everything women do is now merely a pretext for them to get porn careers.
mircea_popescu: and that everything the plebs do is pretty much a pretext for them being exploited, wikipedia chief example

KRS-One: In the mean time, I think my wife awaits in Germany. Wonder what the I.T. market for a gringo guy from the U.S. is like there.
ThickAsThieves: even being a celebrity means having to seriously ponder when/whether to do a sex tape

mircea_popescu: where's the naked womenz only parties there ?
KRS-One: Ya the 50's seemed like the new trends would have been annoying as fuck.
ThickAsThieves: living in the 30s means living in the 50s too
mircea_popescu: and besides, then the 60s which deeply sucked
mircea_popescu: and the the 70s and disco ?!~
mircea_popescu: give me a motherfucking break, i'd have been breivik
KRS-One: Americans had it very well all of those decades.
mircea_popescu: yeah, if they were braindead.
chetty: so what would be a good decade?
mircea_popescu: which... you know, the braindead have it very well today, i'm sure.
ThickAsThieves: 90s were cool
davout: maybe 100 years from now mircea futurescu will say the exact same thing
KRS-One: I noted no lack of prosperity.
mircea_popescu: chetty 1990s in romania and 2000-now globally.
ThickAsThieves: but i suspect 2010s will be similar
mircea_popescu: davout i hope so for his sake.
KRS-One: ThickAsThieves: the 90s was my time..best music and everything.
the20year: US has had it pretty good all the 20th century
KRS-One: thank you the20year
the20year: 90s music? lol
mircea_popescu: maybe the 90s were ok in grenwich village too, but i wouldn't trade.
KRS-One: yeh 90s music was great imo..it improved the 80's and launched a new rock and roll
ThickAsThieves: 90s was pretty great for music
the20year: like?
mircea_popescu: like nirvana.
KRS-One: word
ThickAsThieves: like NWA
mircea_popescu: like a good chunk of iron maiden
KRS-One: fuck'n-A ThickAsThieves
the20year: iron maiden started in the 70s
KRS-One: Tool
mircea_popescu: yeah, even the rap/w/e stuff black people did in the 90s was pretty cool.
ThickAsThieves: like every respected hip hop group known today really
the20year: Iron maiden has been good since they started, and the 90s weren't really significantly better than any other decade
ThickAsThieves: Pharcyde, Tribe, etc
the20year: Nirvana is ok for people with poor musical taste
KRS-One: iron maiden is f'n amazing
the20year: Tool is one of th few 90s bands I like
ThickAsThieves: god i hate tool
KRS-One: whut
KRS-One: blasphemy
ThickAsThieves: it's bullshit music, sorry
the20year: tool ,alice in chains, a few others like them are the only noteworthy 90s bands
KRS-One: thats cool..thickasthieves, got one better?
ThickAsThieves: comparible to tool?
ThickAsThieves: NIN
KRS-One: no
KRS-One: either
KRS-One: A Perfect Circle
davout: the coolest music happened before 1950
mircea_popescu: the20year you like tool and discuss the musical taste of people liking nirvana ?!
ThickAsThieves: circle sucks too
mircea_popescu: this is like... ok you're banned on music criticism nao
KRS-One: Wow ThickAsThieves rly
the20year: In the grand scheme fo things, tool is only mediocre
KRS-One: they are a percussion band
mircea_popescu: b
mircea_popescu: but in no scheme of things in which nirvana sucks tool can be mentioned.
the20year: And nirvana worse than that, of all the music out there, 50 years from now, very little from the 90s will be played
ThickAsThieves: tool is like jazz for metalheads
mircea_popescu: other than for some sort of ronald mcdonald reason
mircea_popescu: nirvana will be played.
ThickAsThieves: indeed
the20year: Nirvana will be one of the very little that will be played
mircea_popescu: for that matter, what do you play from 1940 ?
ThickAsThieves: i'll listen to a little Ella Fitzgerald
the20year: By 1998, in the US there was plenty of 80s being played still, today there is very little 90s music being played outside of things like nirvana ,tool, apc, metallica, and other similar hard rock type bands

mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves you know she was like 10 in 1940
ThickAsThieves: <the20year> By 1998, in the US there was plenty of 80s being played still, today there is very little 90s music being played outside of things like nirvana ,tool, apc, metallica, and other similar hard rock type bands --- that is not how you sort things
the20year: How often do you hear nsync or 98 degrees, or new kids on the block on the radio?
ThickAsThieves: Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 – June 15, 1996)
the20year: (Almost never, and that's because they're compeletely irrelevant)
ThickAsThieves: you examples are so off
the20year: go look at the billboard top 20 from 1991 through 1999
ThickAsThieves: first, you dont judge quality of a decade's music by what is currently on the radio
the20year: and tell me how often any of those songs are continued to be played
mircea_popescu: anyway. 1940 really means wenn die soldaten and embrasse-moi
ThickAsThieves: second, you dont use shitty pop commercials as exmples
mircea_popescu: very little english language crap
mircea_popescu: or w/e you call it, pop.
ThickAsThieves: radio is mortally wounded, probly not a good signal for anything
the20year: There are exceptions to my statement of 'the 90s sucked musically' but considering how much music was put out during that decade
ThickAsThieves: a signal of what blue collar workers are willing to put up with at work maybe

mircea_popescu: anyway, in the 40s armstrong was sutck in tin pan alley, dunno how many people even knew he existed
KRS-One: really?
mircea_popescu: which is kind-of how it will play with the 90s or whatever other decade. we're probably so badly deluged in all the crap

mircea_popescu: i never actually learned it
davout: yeah, if you know FR+ES PT is easily understandable
ThickAsThieves: if you know spanish you know portuguese, especially brazilian style

KRS-One: And the Cubans are out to win a race for speed for some reason..Can never follow them.
mircea_popescu: KRS-One that's where romanian is important.
mircea_popescu: once you follow a conversation between two women speaking simultaneously at about 120wpm
mircea_popescu: you can follow anything
KRS-One: it is probably an older language too right?
KRS-One: It would make sense if so.
mircea_popescu: well anything'd be an older language than creoles spoken in the new world.
KRS-One: I don't know much about language but find it interesting..funny how many words are similar.
davout: so isn't the first sentence something like "Frantic is the exact kind of movie for Harrison Ford" ?
davout: or "that he could have made" ?
mircea_popescu: "Frantic e exact genul de film care-i place lui Harrison Ford. " = frantic is exactly the type of film hf likes.
davout: genul == type ?
davout: kind ?
mircea_popescu: yup. genus
KRS-One: Seems very much like Latin.
davout: explain "care-i place lui"
davout: care-i verb ?
mircea_popescu: care which. place, a placea, to like. -i lui pronouns required by the verbal form
mircea_popescu: i references the film, lui is the possesive for ford.
davout: so place is the actual verb, care the complement and hf the subject

mircea_popescu: maybe that's how you recruit them ?
benkay: not a bad pitch
mircea_popescu: but anyway, since we're talking about recruiting, here's a ploy i invented during dinner earlier :
mircea_popescu: you sign up to a forum, under the pretense you are a time traveller from the future. you establish this persona, more or less humorously but intelligently,
benkay: "i'm doing a survey on sexual practices. oh hey! you're right up my alley - come with me, i'm going to insert someone else in you."
mircea_popescu: then in due time you explain that the REASON you took the time trip is because the future sucks, and you are seeking your own mother in her youth to fuck her and so in causing a singularity erase that sucky future.
mircea_popescu: you further have identified her, and she is X
mircea_popescu: (obviousl;y some research as to the more nubile forum members being i norder)
KRS-One: oh wow
KRS-One: haha
mircea_popescu: and so there you go, she might as well say yes.

mircea_popescu: if your definition of ghost town allows for squatters you can probably check out washington dc
mircea_popescu: or cairo for that matter.
Namworld: Cairo has the same issue as China.
Namworld: Maybe not for you I guess eh
mircea_popescu: smaller ocean anyway
mircea_popescu: actually, california and generally the us west is littered in 100% abandoned towns
mircea_popescu: they may not be very big, maybe a square mile or two, but still
ThickAsThieves: <mircea_popescu> if your definition of ghost town allows for squatters you can probably check out washington dc <<< Asbury Park in NJ at least used to be ghostly
Namworld: If it's ghost enough, there won't be squatters, simply because there won't be food supplied to the area, because no shops open.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 2900 @ 0.00085312 = 2.474 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: right. check out the litany of abandoned mining towns all through ca, az, nm etc
Namworld: Unless they eat the roaches feeding on wood and glue.
mircea_popescu: squatters don't normally have money to buy anything in a shop anyway, so it's even
Namworld: There's no food to steal or find in dumptser too without shops. That's the issue.
mircea_popescu: Kern county has i think 100 or so abandoned settlements
ThickAsThieves: this topic should be elaborated upon further
Namworld: I was kinda hoping for a ghost town large enough to have skyscrapers in disrepair.
ThickAsThieves: you want apocalypse
ThickAsThieves: go watch Jericho
ThickAsThieves: or Walking Dead
mircea_popescu: Namworld that's not possible for a strict reason of closeness.
mircea_popescu: skyscrapers are relatively new tech, economy doesn't shift fast enough to have those yet.
Namworld: I can't visit tv shows tat...
ThickAsThieves: virtually!
mircea_popescu: unless it;s mismanagement (there are in egypt some towns developed but never occupied say)
Namworld: I know, that's why I said I hope that's how Detroit ends up.
Namworld: Eventually become the first specimen.
ThickAsThieves: wouldnt such a place also be too dangerous to visit?
Namworld: Naaaaahhh
mircea_popescu: he has bitcoins, what danger.
ThickAsThieves: let's go hang out in that empty skyscraper
Namworld: Depends on how long it's been left in disrepair I guess.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves at least no plane's landing in that one naimean ?
ThickAsThieves: dunno, empty skyscrapers are bomb more than most no?
ThickAsThieves: bombed*
ThickAsThieves: to make new ones
mircea_popescu: not by mullahs

mircea_popescu: funny thing too : back before the alt explosion, the #1 "criticism" the general public had was "bitcoin is a ponzi"
mircea_popescu: now that joe q random can happily make his own crypto-ponzi, nobody says the word anymore.
mircea_popescu: obviously the entire thing was powered by the general public's jealousy
mircea_popescu: much like the entire "my neighbour is rich clearly he stole it"
mircea_popescu: if somehow the entire neighbourhood goes into theft nobody complains about how the rich stoled it anymore. because fundamentally everyman's objection isn't that someone's rich
mircea_popescu: but that he himself isn't being allowed to steal.
ThickAsThieves: we should make a fake press release from the bitcoin foundation saying Bitcoin Files Secretly Files for IPO, after we buy a bunch of https://www.google.com/finance?q=BTC&ei=jef3UrjDG8PcsQe6hQE

nubbins`: pankkake, +1
mircea_popescu: who the fuck saves for a cup of coffee
pankkake: especially since it comes out faster than tea, I conditionned myself like that
nubbins`: poor people who like starbucks, that's who
mircea_popescu: pankkake it's service, right ? the value of a cup of coffee in and of itself is ~zero
nubbins`: FWIW, starbucks regular drip coffee isn't any more expensive than any other coffee shop
mircea_popescu: nubbins` what's to like ?! it's a cafeteria.
nubbins`: tastes like shit for reasons which many obstinately ignore, but that's another discussion
mircea_popescu: "Despite the popularity, customers seemed confused about what exactly was going on."
nubbins`: so, bitcoin
mircea_popescu: "I have no idea what's going on yet i'm stuffing shit in my mouth"
mircea_popescu: it is beyond me how that entire thing continues to function.
nubbins`: you'd be surprised how many people have said to me "YOU CAN'T DO THAT YOU'LL GET SUED" after seeing some star wars parody shirts we printed for a client
pankkake: from what I understand it's a place you go to show how cool you are
mircea_popescu: pankkake wouldn't all that be nullified by a) it being free and b) you waiting in line ?
nubbins`: pankkake, the feeling of power than one gets from having a very long-winded, very specific drink order plays a part in this too
mircea_popescu: wait what ?!
pankkake: of course not you have to stand in line in cool places
pankkake: otherwise it can't be cool
mircea_popescu: wait wait. so basically... they want to be me, except with something small that they can understand. it's not "build me a thing so and so and back and forth", which is what execs do all day.
nubbins`: "i'll have a coffee" is what a prole says
mircea_popescu: it's "make me a coffee so and so etc", which hey, ceo for drinks ?
nubbins`: "i'll have a quad grande six pump vanilla one inch steamed breve Americano" is what a cultured person says
mircea_popescu: i usually say "order me a coffee"
nubbins`: "order me a triple venti decaf 120 degrees skinny hazelnut wet latte"
pankkake: lol
mircea_popescu: well she's supposed to know what to order
mod6: speaking of starbucks.. i hardly ever go there. but the other day i was like, "hi, tall black coffee plz." then they served me the kiddy cup. im like "wtf!?"
nubbins`: fwiw these are seriously drinks you can order
nubbins`: mod6, tall is small
moiety: mircea_popescu: wait, lmao was i only meant to have 6 tries?!
mircea_popescu: what's a venti ?
nubbins`: it's italian for 20
nubbins`: and thus, 20oz of drink
mircea_popescu: moiety no, i mean, do like 200
mircea_popescu: but the italians don't use ounces
moiety: and re coffee: my first thought was what are they serving? there's no licence and it's free, could be anything
nubbins`: mircea_popescu: nor do they allow starbucks in their country
nubbins`: (lel x100)
mod6: yeah, they told me that, and im like thinkin... 'only in starbucks-universe, when someone orders a `tall` they give you a kiddy cup'
mircea_popescu: so how do you say tall, grande ?
moiety: ahhh but but but mircea_popescu ... i'm at 71% lol that won't stick if i keep playing XD
nubbins`: mod6, the kiddy cup is a "short"
nubbins`: from smallest to biggest: short, tall, grande, venti
mod6: *sigh*
mircea_popescu: what happens if i order insalata caprese ?
nubbins`: short isn't on the menu
mod6: when did coffee get so complicated?
mircea_popescu: mod6 when the us got involved.
mod6: ^^
moiety: what on earth do they call espressos?
nubbins`: mod6, when the average disposable income reached a certain point
pankkake: I've been almost a week without coffee, this discussion is torture!
nubbins`: moiety: espresso :)
mircea_popescu: pankkake so have some coffee
moiety: nubbins`: so disappointing...
nubbins`: nod.
pankkake: forbidden by my doctor
moiety: decaff!
mircea_popescu: your doctor who is french forbid to you, a frenchman, coffee ? and this happened in france ?
nubbins`: heh
mircea_popescu: what are you supposed to do after lunch ?
nubbins`: drink cigarette tea?
moiety: malpractice!
mod6: cocaine
nubbins`: heh
pankkake: it's temporary of course
pankkake: no alcohol either
pankkake: no sport (that, I can do)
mircea_popescu: and no girljuice ?
nubbins`: "The Double Ristretto Venti Half-Soy Nonfat Decaf Organic Chocolate Brownie Iced Vanilla Double-Shot Gingerbread Frappuccino Extra Hot With Foam Whipped Cream Upside Down Double Blended, One Sweet'N Low and One Nutrasweet, and Ice is the longest possible order you could order at Starbucks."

nubbins`: mircea_popescu, milk
pankkake: so I guess starbucks, with macdonalds, is a place where I will never understand orders
moiety: you poor soul pankkake how long have you got to suffer this lifestyle?
mircea_popescu: but that's not nonfat
nubbins`: skim milk.

moiety: lol
mircea_popescu: what happens if you go "vodka"
moiety: gonna make kiwi and apple muffins tomorrow
nubbins`: confused looks
pankkake: what would happen if I go to there and ask for coffee, black?
moiety: sounds like a plan to find out mircea_popescu
nubbins`: they ask if you want a dark or medium roast
moiety: they probably wouldn't understand pankkake
mircea_popescu: i don't think they have one in this town, and likely i wouldn't want to go there anyway
nubbins`: they actually wonder if you'd like a dark roast or pure carbon
nubbins`: but they say "dark or medium"
mircea_popescu: what if you go there and tell the girl "i just want you for the sex" ?
moiety: i never know if im in starbucks or costa coffee
moiety: i think they call the police mircea_popescu
nubbins`: mircea_popescu, they pour scalding water on you
mircea_popescu: how do they call the police ? "hello officer. vente low fat nutrasour evilguy!!!!" ?
nubbins`: notably, international starbucks locations all use the same terminology
nubbins`: so you can go to a starbucks in, say, romania and order the same drink you do in seattle
moiety: lololololol
mircea_popescu: but i don't order it in seattle either
mircea_popescu: so i guess this is true...

pankkake: I need to find more of the coffee I got at christmas. from tanzania

mircea_popescu: that it spins around your kitchen screaming ?
pankkake: lol
nubbins`: no, that you can only buy peaberry coffee from there
davout: "complex coffee for two..." <<< lmao
mircea_popescu: or is that the tanzanian toffee
mod6: haha
nubbins`: that's tasmanian
mircea_popescu: nubbins` that's just the italian spelling
dub: why this talk of starbucks and coffee
nubbins`: heh
mircea_popescu: dub because people saw dumb on a marquee and got all excited
nubbins`: seriously tho.
dub: if you like coffee you've never been to startbucks
mircea_popescu: "o, it's our time now!!"
nubbins`: on average, 5% of coffee beans are peaberries.
nubbins`: and yet EVERY BAG OF COFFEE YOU CAN FIND from tanzania is 100% peaberries
nubbins`: and it's almost impossible to find a non-tanzanian peaberry
pankkake: what's peaberry?
mircea_popescu: they're probably peeberries anyway
nubbins`: this is for no good reason other than some asshole decades ago decided "hey, i'll sell all these peaberries as a tanzanian thing"
nubbins`: pankkake, it's when there's one bean in the cherry instead of two
nubbins`: http://www.seriouseats.com/images/20110115-peaberry.jpg
nubbins`: left is peaberry, right is normal
davout: it looks like potato-coffee
pankkake: oh… I don't remember how mine was
mircea_popescu: scam. my coffee was liquid
mircea_popescu: none of this solid fruit looking stuff
nubbins`: peaberry coffee is very dry

moiety: gold top is the way forward in the milk world
mircea_popescu: i normally drink 6% unpasteurised farm stuff
nubbins`: we have 0, 0.5, 1, 2, 3.25
nubbins`: and then various creams and blends
mircea_popescu: that's shitty.
nubbins`: i like 1%
samson_: Dairy fat is good for you
mircea_popescu: why not just buy some actual milk and water it down yourself then
nubbins`: because canada
mircea_popescu: 1% really has no business costing more than 1/3 of 3%
nubbins`: it's highly illegal to sell unpasteurized milk here
mircea_popescu: derp.
nubbins`: like, you'll go to jail
mircea_popescu: see ? shitty.
nubbins`: like, you can't even buy shares in a fucking cow
mircea_popescu: shares in a cow ?!
nubbins`: some farmer here used to sell unpasteurized milk
nubbins`: gov said no
mircea_popescu: what, you can't pool your moneyz with someone to buy a cow ?
nubbins`: so he sold essentially cow timeshares
nubbins`: entitling you to % of milk
mircea_popescu: haha
nubbins`: unpasteurized, natch
nubbins`: GOV SAID NO
nubbins`: charged his ass
moiety: gold top is 5.4% fat
mircea_popescu: who asked gov ?
nubbins`: well that's the rub
mircea_popescu: moiety sounds like a shade under ok. they prolly skim a little to make butter or w/e
Duffer1: was he not selling it in a bag? that could be the trouble
nubbins`: no-fucking-body
nubbins`: Duffer1 this "bag" thing is a mainland construct
nubbins`: here we do not have bag milk
Duffer1: :P
moiety: it's lovely mircea_popescu i could live off it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channel_Island_milk it's just like cream really
moiety: the cows are smaller apparently
nubbins`: now ostensibly the people buying this unpasteurized milk knew what they were doing
nubbins`: but hey
nubbins`: father knows best!
mircea_popescu: it's actually kinda unhealthy for kids to never have raw milk
nubbins`: oh, psh
mircea_popescu: i guess it's ok if they were breastfed, but anyway
nubbins`: it's unhealthy to not consume the milk of another species?
mircea_popescu: nubbins` cows are not exactly another species.
moiety: a woman just breastfed a puppy to save it's life
nubbins`: this should be good
nubbins`: do tell!
mircea_popescu: the introduction of the cow marked a major explosion in human society and evolution
mircea_popescu: we aren't human in any sense if that sense excludes cows.
mircea_popescu: we're a construct of our history, and they're in there.
jurov: and goats
nubbins`: how about all the places where cow milk isn't really a thing?
mircea_popescu: nubbins` those places are real shitholes.
