nubbins`: well they do a pants-check
mircea_popescu: why do they keep bundling olymptics with the lame&tard mockfest
mircea_popescu: is the idea someone will somehow consider them the same thing somewhere sometime ?
nubbins`: i think it's more because everything is already set up
mod6: things that make you go "hmmm." The last Olympic games where medals were made entirely of gold was 1912.
nubbins`: why break down the tables after the boy scouts banquet if the girl guides banquet is tomorrow?
mircea_popescu: so basically, since i have a bed anyway, some guy unrelated might as well come take a nap.
nubbins`: sure, yeah, if you're in a hotel.
mircea_popescu: mod6 100% gold is a problem tho.
mod6: If the London 2012 Games medals were made from solid gold, they would cost £25 million to make.
mircea_popescu: it's practically chocolate
mod6: HAHAH
mircea_popescu: comes off on your fingers
nubbins`: heh
mircea_popescu: nubbins` i wouldn't go to that hotel, cause im fucking cool, being the olympics.
nubbins`: heh.
nubbins`: i didn't think 100% gold was a thing, anyway.
mircea_popescu: and no you can't have my knife, this isn't a cafeteria, it's a restaurant
mircea_popescu: etc
mircea_popescu: didn't he say completely ?
nubbins`: entirely, but yes
nubbins`: 1912, i'd say they were lucky to get three 9s of purity
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 2 @ 0.124 = 0.248 BTC [-]
nubbins`: this is based on no research, but i stand by it
mircea_popescu: nah, you can get infinitely pure gold even on 1800s tech
mod6: Olympic Gold medals are required to be made from at least 92.5% silver, and must contain a minimum of 6 grams of gold.
mod6: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_medal
ozbot: Gold medal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
nubbins`: infinitely? not likely
nubbins`: 99.999% is the best i've ever heard of
mircea_popescu: nubbins` only limited by your patience
nubbins`: and bankroll
mircea_popescu: well eyah
nubbins`: but still!
nubbins`: five 9s is, i think, the record
mircea_popescu: actually, you can prolly get three 9s at home in your kitchen
nubbins`: nod
nubbins`: diminishing returns after that
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 2 @ 0.19376446 = 0.3875 BTC [+]
nubbins`: i think generally five 9s isn't done often because it's not worth the trouble
mircea_popescu: pretty much
nubbins`: altho once you're set up, no big deal
nubbins`: canada sells 99999 bullion at ~spot
nubbins`: untold $ to set up that sort of facility tho, no doubt
mircea_popescu: not really, man. just wash it in acid, piss in the thing
mircea_popescu: repeat until you're bored.
nubbins`: i think it would take me a while to get bored with pissing on gold
nubbins`: wow, they didn't even award gold medals until the 3rd modern olympics
nubbins`: was only silver/bronze for the first two
mircea_popescu: gold is valuable, yo.
mircea_popescu: almost like bitcoin
nubbins`: btc medal
mircea_popescu: (fun fact : even at the height at the gold standard, gold was RARELY seen in commerce if at all
mircea_popescu: most shopkeepers could live an entire shopkeeping life without ever seeing a gold coin)
nubbins`: but don't worry, stackers, you'll totally be able to use your krugerrands to buy groceries when SHTF
mircea_popescu: yeah, totally.
the20year: Ammo is much more useful
the20year: Just as good as a commodity as gold/silver, but can be used :)
punkman: cow might be better
mircea_popescu: i'd totally want to go hunting with a suppply of bullets that's spent the past three years being handled and knocked around in pockets by 5000 dorks.
the20year: Animals i'm sure could be used, but they're not easily transportable.
mircea_popescu: prolly shoot myself after the first two hours
the20year: Most of the guys that I know that stockpile ammo are keeping it in the factory sealed cans. In the US we get quite a bit of warsaw pac stuff that was designed to have 300+ year shelf lifes
mircea_popescu: yeah, but this is before shtf.
herbijudlestoids: john hussman is my fav fund manager...every monday he releases a weekly market comment, its a happy read for me http://hussmanfunds.com/wmc/wmc140210.htm
benkay: if you're really hedging against needing lots of bullets wouldn't it be better to throw down the cash for a milling machine and buy the individual chemical components?
nubbins`: i've got my doubts that any bullet would pass through more than a couple of hands after shtf
benkay: then mill the components into powder on demand?
nubbins`: benkay, what's a milling machine?
mircea_popescu: benkay down the same route : wouldn't the best investment be a large supply of keys to already installed cock cages ?
nubbins`: is that one of those weird things that doesn't work anymore since the shtf?
mircea_popescu: nubbins` no because it's hand operated by cockcaged slave guys
the20year: Depends benkay, the components are stockpiled by plenty of people, but not everyone has the knowhow to reload, and most shooters dont' trust other people who reload the ammo
benkay: no, no. a hand-cranked mill that mills powders into well-mixed other powders.
the20year: Too easy to doublecharge something and blow someone up
nubbins`: the20year, that's actually perfect
benkay: cock cages?
nubbins`: "i'll trade you 1 bullet for that chicken"
the20year: The chemical components are extremely expensive for modern powders and highly controlled, or you could buy a 8lb, or 24lb jug of mixed powder
nubbins`: guy takes your bullet, blows his face off
nubbins`: then you get all his chickens.
mircea_popescu: lol
the20year: The US did that in vietnam quite a bit, filled enemy bullets with high explosives and let them kill themselves
nubbins`: sneaky
mircea_popescu: and they totally won o nthat strategy
nubbins`: ^
nubbins`: well they got all the chickens anyway
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [RENT] 100 @ 0.0055 = 0.55 BTC
mircea_popescu: nubbins` it was mostly desperation, by that point. wasn't that widely employed, but hey. anything to maybe get an edge
the20year: For what it was, it was pretty effective, granted the US military foray into vietnam in of itself was idocy
nubbins`: ever try fighting a man who just ate a full chicken?
nubbins`: he doesn't want to be at it
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids "are about double the level that would generate historically adequate long-term returns"
nubbins`: "fuck off dude, srsly"
the20year: It's slightly more diffcult than people who are nearly starving to death, ala stalingrad/leningrad
mircea_popescu: i'd say the man is well within range. that's about where i see it too.

nubbins`: i said sorry D;
the20year: My brother actually pitched the idea of bitcoin to a higher level manager at DHL, and coinbase contacted him to pass some information to DHL, i guess coinbase has some pretty neat programs for large organiations
cazalla: yeah well my dad knows the CEO of DHL
the20year: They need to listen to whomever their top guy in Ohio is then :D
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: he had one issue in 2009 when he was insisting to stress test their method against depression era data, so he missed that bottom in trade but did call it
the20year: My brother sends enough DHL packages I guess that they want to start a hub or branch or whatever where he's located
the20year: herb, this is the fund manager you talked about earlier?
mircea_popescu: how old is the guy ?
cazalla: My brother sends twice as many DHL packages as your brother
nubbins`: YEAH WELL MY DAD IS A FUCKING COP
mircea_popescu: i bet nubbins dad could be sent to ohio by cazalla's dad
mircea_popescu: in a package
nubbins`: no doubt

mircea_popescu: the entire thing melted and it smells like spring
mircea_popescu: here.
the20year: Nice
nubbins`: -17c overnight here
mircea_popescu: the rest of the country, well... some snow. nothing huge.
nubbins`: basically the same
the20year: I had to shovel a 2ft high ice wall last night
the20year: Car slid off road today into a guard rail. This is the worst winter I've ever had to drive in
herbijudlestoids: the20year: yeah
mircea_popescu: some people from somalia had to drive to kenya or something
cazalla: we've had heat wave after heat wave over the past few weeks in australia
mircea_popescu: to get out of the disaster area
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: um, i guess 40ish?
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids trying to discern if i should have his history dug up or not.
the20year: we're gonna hit -17c a few times next week
nubbins`: maybe all this weird weather is from not burning enough dinosaur mud
mircea_popescu: cazalla well now we finally know who's causing all the global warming. STOP IT
the20year: Our record low with windchill so far this year was -50
cazalla: a few weeks back we had 40c+ for 5 days straight
nubbins`: fun fact, we have a ton of offshore oil fields here, and they just burn off all the natural gas on site instead of doing something useful with it
the20year: Is that pretty untypical?
cazalla: i had to bring my meat rabbits inside

the20year: They used to do that all the time locally, but anymore they bottle/compress it or something else
nubbins`: well that would be the sensible thing
the20year: The compression systems aren't cheap, but i did manage to find one a few years ago that ran off of natural gas
the20year: so your only imput was natural gas, output was compressed or liquified
cazalla: the20year: nope but i don't think that'd done much for them in 40+ heat for 5 days
cazalla: do*
nubbins`: i have a hard time believing that the compression systems are so uneconomical that the better solution is to just waste it all
the20year: We have 40c days here in Ohio and that's usually what they do
nubbins`: makes me wonder
the20year: I'm sure it all depends on how much gas
nubbins`: nod
the20year: the one I looked at took 50% to 70% of the input to compress it
nubbins`: huh.
the20year: Specifically, i was looking at building a methane digester and compressing the gas
mircea_popescu: nubbins` maybe the hassle of getting permits is such that they're just making a point.
the20year: Compressing NG isn't cheap
nubbins`: mircea_popescu, there's no such thing as a hassle here
nubbins`: if you want to plunder resources
nubbins`: they'll name a building after ya

the20year: you were once a british colony
nubbins`: the first giant squid corpse ever found washed ashore here!
nubbins`: yes, until 1949
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: basically in 2009 he mandated that they stress test their method on pre WW2 depression era data to validate it, and consequently missed the bottom. by the time he was satisfied the market had returned to overbought/overvalued/overbullish/rising yields state
the20year: Payment for fighting ww2 :)
nubbins`: the20year, we didn't "fight" in ww2 :)
herbijudlestoids: so hes been essentially fully hedged since 2009 and paying for the puts
the20year: Canada was certainly involved
mircea_popescu: this is incredibly stupid ;/
nubbins`: yes, for sure
the20year: Granted, many times under control of idiotic english generals
nubbins`: most newfoundland men of age were slaughtered in ww1
mircea_popescu: so he's fighting the fed on his shoestring budget ? what is this, the internet ?
nubbins`: we didn't send any soldiers for ww2
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: it turns out in hindsight that their method would have worked perfectly but he wanted to be sure
the20year: Canada - The poland of the commonwealth
the20year: I meant canada in General
nubbins`: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaumont-Hamel_Newfoundland_Memorial
nubbins`: anyway, newfoundland was british for both world wars
nubbins`: mildly funny to see canadian flags flown on remembrance day here

the20year: they fly US flags in hawaii and Alaska during our veteran memorial days
the20year: I guess it's better than flying the UK flag
nubbins`: heh
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: well he doesnt really view the "fighting the fed" angle as valid, he doesnt believe QE has any proven mechanism for higher prices and shows pretty convincing data on that front. his view is the rally since 2009 is entirely attributable to the FASB mark to unicorn rules
nubbins`: mircea_popescu, saved

mircea_popescu: the us cook your books authority.
nubbins`: fasb, flambeeing and sauteeing books
herbijudlestoids: lots of new blocks churning on altcoin today
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids the argument isn't that in an actually functioning economy with actual accounting and reporting the virtual equivalent of the fed could prop up prices by printing paper.
the20year: NL did manage a artillery regiment in ww2
mircea_popescu: the argument is that in the actual dysfunctional economy as it is, without any accounting or reporting, the fed can SAY it did anything it pleases, and SAY it had whatever effect it choses
herbijudlestoids: so wut? does that have any proven link to higher stock prices? no
herbijudlestoids: the whole point of the hussman funds is to invest based on proven transmission mechanisms
mircea_popescu: pretty much the only way to profitably invest in equity in the soviet us is by being friendly with the us politburo.
herbijudlestoids: breadth, valuation, sentiment, rates, etc
the20year: So do you have seasons in NL
mircea_popescu: that'd be the only proven and conceptually sound transmission mechanism,
nubbins`: the20year: ah, ya learn something new every day
mircea_popescu: and i wonder why's he not lobbying then.
the20year: I'm big on ww2 history, it was pretty easy to find out whether they sent infantry, i was pretty sure they sent something
nubbins`: yeah
nubbins`: there were entire communities here essentially wiped out by ww1
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: you might like this article http://hussmanfunds.com/wmc/wmc100823.htm
the20year: Yeah , that was pretty common with commonwealth troops during WW1. All the colonies got screwed by England when they started having manpower shortgages
the20year: Australia had sometimes similarissues, but more canadians were involved in events like passendale and the somme that obliterated large division sized units
herbijudlestoids: ThickAsThieves: yo you around?
the20year: And they kind of had the similar opinion/use of commonwealth troops during ww2, just look at dieppe
nubbins`: yeah, there's some connection between newfoundland and passchendaele
nubbins`: the details escape me
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids his model is fundamentally broken. the relative prices of currencies are to a large degree fixed politically.
the20year: 67k deaths, 150k wounded just abotu for canada and australia each
the20year: 4.5m total aussies at that time, 7.5m canadians at that time

benkay: i seriously do not get it. consider it a flaw of youth, and this your opportunity to larn me a thing.
nubbins`: you just posed a tautology as a question
nubbins`: benkay: we have free universal healthcare here in canada.
nubbins`: know what's cheaper than AIDS treatment?
nubbins`: a 25 cent crack pipe.
benkay: doesn't really address the heroin side of things, though.
nubbins`: sure
moiety: ThickAsThieves: i mean r3wt. just don't.
benkay: but mitigates i guess?
ThickAsThieves: oh
nubbins`: there's a supervised injection site in downtown vancouver
nubbins`: same thing.
nubbins`: junkies using dirty needles = healthcare burden
nubbins`: plus, outreach
benkay: no to be flip but idiots with btc = scam burden
moiety: junkies. = healthcare burden
nubbins`: some junkie goes to Insite to shoot up, not only does he not give himself hep/aids, but he's now in a room with people who can encourage him to seek treatment
nubbins`: moiety: not necessarily
nubbins`: and even then, there are degrees
moiety: how? they are using healthcare, if not for their habit, for the issues it brings them later down the line
nubbins`: okay, but everyone is using healthcare
moiety: yep
moiety: some more than others
nubbins`: yes
nubbins`: the guy with hep c, for example, vs the guy without
nubbins`: or, put another way, the guy who shared a needle vs the guy who got a clean one
nubbins`: junkies are going to shoot up whether they have clean digs or not
moiety: or any guy using a needle clean or dirty vs a guy who doesn't
moiety: which is a burden
benkay: everyone's a burden on healthcare, moiety. idiots who eat too many carbs and develop diabetes are vastly more expensive than junkies.
nubbins`: the purpose of safe injection sites is to prevent junkies from getting hep c and try to get them to clean up
moiety: totally agree with you there benkay
nubbins`: anyway, the big mistake people make is thinking that safe injection sites, free crack pipes etc "enable" drug users
nubbins`: which is laughable
moiety: it is, if they want it they will get it
nubbins`: exactly.
nubbins`: social conservatives struggle with this concept
moiety: cleaner practice is always the ideal
nubbins`: 76% of vancouver residents support the existence of Insite
nubbins`: think about that: THREE QUARTERS of a major metropolitan city would rather the junkies have a safe, clean place to shoot up
moiety: i think 100% would rather not see them staggering/laying around places either
nubbins`: oh, sure
moiety: this way, they are contained too
nubbins`: the other side is dirty needles
nubbins`: you want 'em in the streets or in a sharps container?
moiety: you get a lot here
benkay: just a short slide from locking all of the undesireables up in crappy hi-rises. i endorse.
benkay: "have some tv, water, food-paste, sharps, internet. go to town, kids! just don't leave the tower."
nubbins`: they busted a house across the street from a dive bar i frequent some months ago
nubbins`: found a GOLF BAG full of dirty needles
nubbins`: FULL.
mircea_popescu: <nubbins`> junkies are going to shoot up whether they have clean digs or not << the solution isn't to let them do w/e they want cause otherwise they hold their breath
mircea_popescu: the solution is to not provide any healthcare out of public funds for any drug user.
mircea_popescu: you ever used drugs in your life ? tough. gotta pay now.
dub: thats more expensive
nubbins`: that's only a solution in la-la land
mircea_popescu: no, it's a solution in reality. the lala land is the presumption that anyone is worth something.
dub: dead body in the gutter causes more problems
nubbins`: ^
dub: costs more than healthcare etc
mircea_popescu: while recent tech boom allowed such nonsense be financed by squandering resources that'd have been better used elsewhere,
mircea_popescu: overall the gravy train is going away
nubbins`: so how do you determine if someone has "ever" used drugs
mircea_popescu: nubbins` you test em
dub: its kinda like the argument for not fucing up the environment then dealing with it later
nubbins`: test them for what?
dub: oh wait
mircea_popescu: for your definiton of drugs
nubbins`: know what's cheaper than a drug test?
nubbins`: a 25 cent crack pipe.
mircea_popescu: i don't give a shit really.
dub: know whats mostly untestable
nubbins`: lsd?
mircea_popescu: dub no it's not. you telling me a heroin addict is untestable for junk ?
dub: after a matter of days, yes
mircea_popescu: IF he waits a few days
mircea_popescu: then no prejudice.
dub: stupid argument anyway
mircea_popescu: hah. stop sidestepping.
dub: its like arguing that prostitution be illegal
mircea_popescu: no, it's not at all like that.
dub: people are going to do it, there is an efficient way to deal and its not filling up jails
mircea_popescu: you can afford drugs, you can afford to pay the hospital bill.
mircea_popescu: do your math and make up your choices.
nubbins`: well that's the thing
dub: or exterminating people or whatever your solution is
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CFIG] 2 @ 0.07950001 = 0.159 BTC [+]
nubbins`: there isn't an "Afford drugs"
mircea_popescu: dub there's no "dealing". its not your motherfucking job to solve idiots problems
mircea_popescu: let them rot.
nubbins`: you're gonna steal flatscreen TVs to pay for a hospital stay?
dub: if you want an efficient society it is
mircea_popescu: nubbins` shot on the spot.
mircea_popescu: you stole a tv ? bang.
mircea_popescu: next ?
nubbins`: what's the cutoff
nubbins`: suppose you steal a loaf of bread
nubbins`: shot?
mircea_popescu: bang.
nubbins`: or just lose a hand
dub: steal a look at random chicks tits?
mircea_popescu: there's no cutoff. you're caught stealing that's it for you.
dub: some would say bang
mircea_popescu: dub nah, all that bs copyright shit is going away.
nubbins`: well
nubbins`: i can't see any flaws in this line of thinking
nubbins`: you just solved crime and drug addiction
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CFIG] 2 @ 0.08298893 = 0.166 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: you're not "dealing" with people./
mircea_popescu: you make simple rules and enforce them drastically.
mircea_popescu: that's it.
dub: do the maths
mircea_popescu: okay ?
nubbins`: not really okay
nubbins`: maybe for romania, no idea what things are like there
mircea_popescu: it's actually okay whether you like it or not. a la bitcoin.
nubbins`: in canada, it's generally accepted that people don't want things the way you describe
mircea_popescu: nobody cares what people want
nubbins`: lel
mircea_popescu: first on the list, the people themselves.
nubbins`: you're a character
mircea_popescu: people can want in one hand and piss in the other, see which fills first.
nubbins`: the want hand fills first here
mircea_popescu: da fuck did "want" become a legitimate argument anyway
benkay: well you're filthy communists.
nubbins`: liberal utopia
nubbins`: i can get my doctor to prescribe me weed
nubbins`: and the government will sell it to me
dub: you have to pay?
nubbins`: $5/gram
dub: thats a bit harsh
mircea_popescu: anyway, fwiw, in my experience works splendidly. whether you're working to destupidify women, or to build an exchange, or anything else.
nubbins`: yeah i know dude
mircea_popescu: simple rules, draconic enforcement, sayonara.
dub: except its never worked before
dub: and probably never will
mircea_popescu: dub far as i've seen it;s the only thing it ever worked.
mircea_popescu: course people who dislike shit working tend to scream it doesn't work, but hey.
mircea_popescu: do the gedankenexperiment, as asciilifeform calls them :
mircea_popescu: you go to class of schoolkids, lay down the rules for what they have to do till next class. whoever didn't do it is beaten till they pass out.
mircea_popescu: kids will scream as to how "this doesn;'tg work"
mircea_popescu: six months later ALL the kids in that class do ALL the homework ALL of the time flawlessly.
nubbins`: and ALL grow up to be normal adults and not psychopaths
mircea_popescu: and suddenly lolcatting isn't quite as appealing either,
dub: maybe at the cost of most of thier utility
nubbins`: here's another gedanken
mircea_popescu: nubbins` definitely more normal than the current crop.
mircea_popescu: dub kids have 0 utility as it is now you kidding me ?
nubbins`: alice takes oxycodone after her back surgery, bob takes oxycodone for the lels. alice and bob go to the hospital complaining of a bum knee.
nubbins`: which one gets healthcare and which one gets turned away / shot?
dub: as should be obvious, the better way to acheive your subservience is to addict you to drugs and tv
mircea_popescu: alice wants oxycodone for her surgery she stays in the hospital.
mircea_popescu: problem solved. next ?
nubbins`: hospital stays are a burden on the taxpayer, problem unsolved
mircea_popescu: dub my point being that you don't want subservience, you want competence.
dub: yeah wtf
dub: a bed for everyone that needs pain relief?
mircea_popescu: nubbins` not quite.
nubbins`: ^
mircea_popescu: dub who needs "pain relief" when they're stuck in hospital ?
nubbins`: ^ humans?
mircea_popescu: people need pain relief if you let them outside.
mircea_popescu: you'd be surprised.
nubbins`: yeah dude, shit doesn't hurt in the hospital
dub: havent you seen the matrix?
mircea_popescu: suddenly it's a well this oxycodone is kinda cool, but im stuck here for a day cause of it.
mircea_popescu: i guess i maybe don't really need it anymore.
nubbins`: okay, so you have a herniated disc
mircea_popescu: so you do.
nubbins`: your choices are stay in the hospital for 6 months or deal with unbearable chronic pain for 6 months
mircea_popescu: yup.
nubbins`: sounds like it'd work in practice
mircea_popescu: what, you think herniated disks were invented AFTER oxycodone ?
nubbins`: wait, no it doesn't
mircea_popescu: tell you what, it's only unbearable cause you're used to being a sissy
mircea_popescu: pain is eminently bearable.
nubbins`: well if we're being obstinate, suppose alice has a job that she can't perform when experiencing high levels of pain
mircea_popescu: of all things it's actually the most bearable. as people die of thirst in a coupla days and of hunger in a coupla months
nubbins`: or do we just shoot everyone who hurts their back?
mircea_popescu: but you can be in pain indefinitely and it won't kill you.
dub: spoken like someone that doesnt know pain
mircea_popescu: nubbins` tough for her, she no longer has that job.
mircea_popescu: dub of everyone here i'm the only guy that gets his teeth fixed w/o anesthesia i'd wager.
nubbins`: okay, so what does she do now?
mircea_popescu: also probably the only guy to have ever been shot etc.
nubbins`: jobless and in pain
mircea_popescu: nubbins` tough for her.
mircea_popescu: next time she'll be more careful.
nubbins`: no, tough for the hospital staff she shoots
mircea_popescu: she shoots my ass.
dub: pff minor league
nubbins`: if your ass is in the door, yes
mircea_popescu: you give alice way too much credit while simultaneously giving her way too little credit.
mircea_popescu: if she's cool enough to start shooting she's cool enough to take it on the chin and move on.
nubbins`: you use "tough" like it's an explanation more often than an intelligent person should
mircea_popescu: because im confronted with "but mommy i don't like X" way more often than any sane person should.
punkman: mircea_popescu: I skip the anesthesia at the dentist, hate having a numb face for 4 hours after
mircea_popescu: so good for you.
mircea_popescu: how unbearable is it ?
punkman: but it's hard to stay still for the bigger fillings and shit
nubbins`: anyway, as lovely as this little "kill everyone" scheme sounds
mircea_popescu: supposedly tooth pain is way up there on the scale.
mod6: i went without the stuff until i had 4 teeth drilled without it. that sucked.
nubbins`: tooth pain is a bad one
punkman: I definitely sweat a bit, not that unbearable
nubbins`: inner ear pain is tough as well
mod6: i must be getting soft
mircea_popescu: mod6 i'm not proposing some never anesthesia bs incidentally.
mircea_popescu: just illustrating the point that there's nothing unbearable about pain.
mircea_popescu: it may not be what you want to be doing, sure,
KRS-One: wut
nubbins`: so replace "unbearable" with "excruciating" or w/e
mircea_popescu: but then again that's not the criteria now is it.
nubbins`: you're getting caught up in semantics
KRS-One: pain sucks and i wont bare it
dub: replace unbearable with 'prevents you from being fully utilised'
mircea_popescu: eh bs.
nubbins`: so alice can't get pain meds without a costly hospital stay
punkman: chronic pain is different, it can really wear you down
dub: enough to blow your retarded argument away
mircea_popescu: this utilitartian angle is not going anywhere dub
nubbins`: alice decides to self-medicate with booze
nubbins`: PROBLEM SOLVED
benkay: no nubbins` this 'kill everyone' is the actual plan. all of the above are just implementation details.
nubbins`: wait, shit, now we've got drunkards everywhere driving cars and beating their kids
mircea_popescu: nubbins` if that;s what she does good for her.
KRS-One: nubbins` I think pot is the best pain killer that isnt made in a lab
nubbins`: KRS-One, but drugs tough etc
mircea_popescu: nobody said she can drive a car drunk any more than she can have oxycodone outpatient style.
nubbins`: you should not be allowed to smoke pot unless you are in a hospital
nubbins`: mircea_popescu: who's to stop her?
mircea_popescu: you can smoke pot whenever you want, who cares.
KRS-One: nubbins` alcohol is way worse than pot..you can't overdose on da ganja either
nubbins`: so pot is fine but oxycodone isn't?
KRS-One: oxycodone is great anytime of the day or week.
mircea_popescu: nubbins` pretty much heroin is the only entry on my list of "drugs"
nubbins`: innnnteresting
mircea_popescu: your list may vary at your leisure, the argument is list independent
nubbins`: sounds like there's not much drug use in your town
mircea_popescu: kids and their pills mostly.
dub: no, they kill and eat drug users
mircea_popescu: dub no, they just don't have this "omg what do you want" culture yet
dub: clearly a winning strategy
mircea_popescu: so the society is reasonably functional still.
mircea_popescu: yeah, actually it is, dubsy.
nubbins`: heroin isn't even really a thing here
nubbins`: cocaine and pills
nubbins`: mostly
mircea_popescu: think of utility in the following terms : people making on average 300 bucks here when rents are on average 350 bucks
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CBTC] 3278 @ 0.00019987 = 0.6552 BTC [+] {2}
dub: it probably is a thing there
mircea_popescu: go outside the little park in their projects to FIX THE BENCHES
mircea_popescu: with their own tools.
nubbins`: i do have to lel when i see people jam most of an 8ball up their nose at the bar and then ask if the coffee is "fair trade" at the shop the next day
nubbins`: was that fair trade coke you jammed up your face?
mircea_popescu: people making 900 a month in food stamps and free housing over there hang around the cortners glaring at passer bys
mircea_popescu: so no, don't be telling me about how shit functions and doesn't.
dub: heroin is very clique'y
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CBTC] 12927 @ 0.00019999 = 2.5853 BTC [+] {8}
nubbins`: sure, but you take away that 900 and food stamps and housing tomorrow and the city would burn to the ground in a week
mircea_popescu: anyway, re the list : to be an addictive substance something needs to actually give addiction
nubbins`: much harder to take away once given
mircea_popescu: the definition of which is "sudden discontinuation = death"
nubbins`: so, booze fits the definition
mircea_popescu: not that many substances presented as addictive actually are in any sense.
mircea_popescu: nah.
nubbins`: are you new? alcohol withdrawal kills
dub: can you name one?
mircea_popescu: in lalaland.
mircea_popescu: dub heroin. some synthetics.
dub: um
nubbins`: in realworld land too
mircea_popescu: nubbins` you know = does not mean "in one stray case out of 5498740958609"
mircea_popescu: = means =
nubbins`: ah, so kills 100% of time, ok
nubbins`: i don't think heroin fits that either
nubbins`: we're back to square one
mircea_popescu: try it sometime.
nubbins`: heroin? nah
nubbins`: i don't like needles
mircea_popescu: so then wtf basis do you "Think" on
nubbins`: try asking that a different way
dub: heroin is not instaaddict stuff
mircea_popescu: nobody said insta at any point.
dub: nor do you die when you kick
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 18050 @ 0.00085201 = 15.3788 BTC [+] {2}
mircea_popescu: cold turkey ? yeah, you die.
nubbins`: 100% of the time
nubbins`: because =
herbijudlestoids: jebus fuck arguing over technicalities.
herbijudlestoids: heroin withdrawal kills you
nubbins`: herb, it's what we do
herbijudlestoids: clonazepam withdrawal kills you
mircea_popescu: nubbins` in the sense we rounded 1 out of 5498740958609 to 0 we'll round out of 5498740958608 out of out of 5498740958609 to 1.0
benkay: welcome to assets, herbijudlestoids
herbijudlestoids: alcohol withdrawal does not kill you
moiety: sorry delayed response but what do you think about daily/weekly dispensing then nubbins`?
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids no no we must have fucktarded 5yo arguments about how the peas aren't really peas
nubbins`: dispensing drugs or works?
mircea_popescu: and wantboy shouldn't have to eat the peas
moiety: drugs sorry
nubbins`: moiety: beats me, does it work in practice?
moiety: depends on the aim. we used it to stop people overdosing
nubbins`: herbijudlestoids: and everyone should eat peas or they're stupid
herbijudlestoids: yall stupid.
mircea_popescu: no. everyone should eat peas or they're beaten.
dub: in theory the programs are to ween you off, not maintain
nubbins`: you kid, but that's your answer to most problems
nubbins`: whether the shoe fits or not
mircea_popescu: it is, yes.
herbijudlestoids: dub, nubbins` yall junkies? know junkies? watched your mates die?
mircea_popescu: violence is way underrated as a personal development tool.
herbijudlestoids: if not
herbijudlestoids: STFU
nubbins`: after all, if the shoe doesn't fit, it's because of libtards encouraging kids to grow their feet
mircea_popescu: nubbins` except the shoe fits fine and the princess is having a hysteria session
mircea_popescu: cause she's gots to be speshul and couldn't possibly be ever fit by a shoe
nubbins`: except abstract analogies that don't make sense
mircea_popescu: god forbid.
nubbins`: cause no argument
mircea_popescu: no shoe understands her dragon feet.
nubbins`: satan allow
mircea_popescu: this has been one of the best arguments with no actual common ground in which people talking about entirely different things that so far ever happened on assets
bones6: Autism only arrived after we stopped beating our children. QED
mircea_popescu: ^
nubbins`: no kidding, everybody's blood is running hot now
nubbins`: herb even told us to shut the fuck up because he's been there man and we haven't
mircea_popescu: you know what autism figures were in romania at the time the aids figures were 0.0x%
nubbins`: 100%?
mircea_popescu: on the grounds of all the aids kids being starved to death in specialised institutions ?
mircea_popescu: about 0.0% cause everyone was affraid of reporting it.
nubbins`: ah, cool. how did that work out for romania?
mircea_popescu: also at the time romania ruled the gymnastics at the olympics
mircea_popescu: because 15 yo girls and beating.
nubbins`: oh. so pretty well, then
mircea_popescu: i can't complain :)
nubbins`: so this heavy-handed beating-or-else thing really worked out for you guys
nubbins`: there wasn't any social upheaval or anything in the meantime?
nubbins`: OH WAIT
mircea_popescu: hehehe
mircea_popescu: wait, you're going to tell me that the romanian revolution was over free access to drugs ?
mircea_popescu: here's a fun little tidbit : in 1991 they had no cop on the force that knew what pot smells like.
nubbins`: no, i'm going to tell you it was over I HAVE THE ANSWERS STFU OR BANG
mircea_popescu: think about that for a moment.
dub: herbijudlestoids: have been, indeed, no.
mircea_popescu: dub what'd you junkie on ?
dub: meth
mircea_popescu: what srsly ?!
nubbins`: yucky
mircea_popescu: why...
nubbins`: because people do things
mircea_popescu: "well one day i noticed my house was kinda dirty..."
mircea_popescu: nubbins` let me guess, they experiment right ?
nubbins`: sure, yeah. sometimes with drugs, sometimes with things that end up being bitcoin

herbijudlestoids: so when i left the house yesterday afternoon, the GH on coinminer.net pool for ATC was ~40. when i got home, ~100. today, ~200
nubbins`: mircea_popescu, maybe they should have a safe pot smoking site
mircea_popescu: but to not let the revolution issue hanging : there were arguably a few explanatory reasons
nubbins`: Insmoke or something
moiety: mircea_popescu: was just reading up, i'm all for anything to do with gpg
mircea_popescu: in the 70s they made contraception illegal. the births jumped then over a decade levelled off to the original values. the life of women turned into a nightmare tho. those kids... they pretty much WERE the revolution.
nubbins`: mircea_popescu: oh sure, i just figured since we were handwaving away complex issues with flippant, facile replies...
diametric: asciilifeform: i convinced johnny russell to accept bitcoin on ultimachine.com.
dub: was gonna mine some ATC but my asic blowed up
mircea_popescu: in the 80s ceausescu got pissed off at the us bankers, paid off all romania's debt. this resulted in horrible restraints on consume market.
dub: someone musta went bang on it
the20year: in romania?
mircea_popescu: people put up with it till the debt was paid, in 88. at that point no relaxation showed up and peeps were enraged
nubbins`: no doubt
mircea_popescu: finally, the language was deteriorating under the pressure of bureaucratic formalism.
mircea_popescu: this may be a cultural explanation.
mircea_popescu: that's about the set, really.
nubbins`: like we said, it's harder to change gears once you get going
nubbins`: be it dropping social welfare or easing restraints on the consumer market
mircea_popescu: perhaps.
nubbins`: hey, you saw it happen
nubbins`: now consider what would happen in canada if tomorrow welfare was 100% abolished
mircea_popescu: but you can't in any shape or form successfully argue that the current english cultural space anti-intellectualism, anti-voluntarism and deliberate depersonalisation has any sort of future.
nubbins`: the average canadian doesn't want a revolution
dub: its ok, romainia has heavy duty 6 puck soviet era ventilated clutch
nubbins`: no, i can't argle that
nubbins`: argue, either!
mircea_popescu: well that's where we'll have to settle.
mircea_popescu: i'll concede going around beating people isn't a winning strategy
nubbins`: i'll concede that i'd just as soon kill the pillheads in my neighbourhood
mircea_popescu: nor something that could ever be done. you couldn't pay me to do it.
mircea_popescu: you can't even fucking troll this dumbass chan ffs. half hour later people start hugging and conceding things
nubbins`: hah
mircea_popescu: it'

gribble: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=On%20the%20spectrum | Oct 19, 2013 ... On the spectrum. A phrase used to describe a person with social tics and/or awkwardness usually associated with autism or asperger's ...
mircea_popescu: haha
nubbins`: it's a phrase here :D
mircea_popescu: i dunno, i guess i gotta be on the spectrum
mircea_popescu: it is, after all, a spectrum.
nubbins`: nod
nubbins`: we all are, i'm sure
mircea_popescu: i'm the black or w/e
dub: you the whitest nigger I ever dun see
mircea_popescu: i'm not white
mircea_popescu: i'm just priviledged.
nubbins`: anyway, full circle, synesthesia has been reported in both lsd users and autistics
mircea_popescu: nubbins` and artists.
nubbins`: most of the artists fall into one camp or the other
dub: is that the audio hallucanatoin jonx?
mircea_popescu: no they don't stop pushing your druggie agenda.
nubbins`: JOIN US
mircea_popescu: dub it's when a chick thinks she can smell your cock because it tastes so good.
nubbins`: MUSIC SOUNDS BETTER
mircea_popescu: or no wait.
nubbins`: dub, shit like tasting colors or hearing smells
mircea_popescu: it's when a chick thinks she can smell your cock because it hits her in the back of the throat so nice
nubbins`: if chicks can smell your cock you've got a problem
dub: I read about a deaf woman who released an album of her audible hallucinations oslt
mircea_popescu: nubbins` "thinks"
nubbins`: aha!
nubbins`: subtle
dub: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruef7aYCEbc
ozbot: Smell Yo Dick (Official Video) - YouTube
dub: ^related
duduqa: hi there
nubbins`: dub, auditory hallucinations are strange things indeed
mircea_popescu: besides, cocks actually do smell i'm told.
mircea_popescu: duduqa ello
nubbins`: i once smashed a radio that wasn't turned on
nubbins`: "...oh"
duduqa: mircea_popescu: hello!
mircea_popescu: clearly reefer has no ill effects
benkay: i once worked for a gentleman who when voices were raised above a certain threshold in meetings would visibly lose his ability to read his monitor
nubbins`: if reefer caused hallucinations i'd smoke it more often
mircea_popescu: benkay so like a dog ? other dogs barking, can't focus nomoar.
moiety: auditory hallucinations are much more common than visual hallucinations. more uncommon than both, are tactile ones
mircea_popescu: dub not bad actually. who's the chick ?
nubbins`: moiety: lies, i mistakenly think i've pissed myself maybe once every two weeks on average
benkay: he claimed a degree of constant synasthesia. was also pretty thoroughly autistic. the story was that he couldn't see his screen when voices got loud.
mircea_popescu: that's just bad childhood memories nubbins`
benkay: so yes, distracted.
dub: the deaf one or the smell yo dick one? (i have nfi eather way)
mircea_popescu: the latter.
moiety: is this after a massive amount of alcohol nubbins`?
nubbins`: usually if i've smoked a lot of pot, not always
nubbins`: i don't drink much
moiety: thats not halluincatory in a true sense though
nubbins`: fun story, before the early 2000s there was no recreational drug that was active at the same dosage range as lsd. you bought some paper, it was the real thing or nothing at all
moiety: its more a perception thing
nubbins`: moiety, nod
mircea_popescu: indeed.
nubbins`: then this class of drugs called NBOMe was discovered
nubbins`: which were active at very small doses, enough to fit on a blotter
mircea_popescu: aka "National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners"
nubbins`: all of a sudden lsd started tasting oddly bitter
nubbins`: and the trips were strange
moiety: what exactly are microdots then?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [RENT] 60 @ 0.0055 = 0.33 BTC
nubbins`: teeny tiny caplets, i think
nubbins`: still lsd, just in a different vessel
KRS-One: someone told me he microdosed LSD for a while and wound up speaking perfect german almost as if you can learn great things by separation
moiety: like super string lsd i was under the impression?
moiety: strong*
moiety: kk
nubbins`: KRS-One, i've had legitimate epiphanies on lsd
benkay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cE5YOVCahcQ
ozbot: Tosh.0 'Smell Yo Dick' Official Music Video - YouTube
nubbins`: ANYWAY
nubbins`: this bitter not-acid was the only thing you could buy for a long time
moiety: KRS-One: there's a guy in hospital here on a permanent trip, since he was 21 or so... a bad trip. poor guy is tortured and has no insight at all
nubbins`: it was only when the derpy pirate roberts opened his Ye Old Shoppe that the real deal once again became available
moiety: people have woken from comas speaking different languages
duduqa: moiety: wat?
moiety: people have been known to wake from coma being able to speak languages they weren;t able to before.
herbijudlestoids: nubbins`: you have a very weird perception of the drug market
moiety: i'd assume these were people in coma in countries other than their native language
herbijudlestoids: 5-MeO-AMT was common on blotter before the discovery of 25i-NBOMe
nubbins`: herbijudlestoids: i live on an island, what do you expect?
herbijudlestoids: and the resurgence in LSD has *nothing* to do with the silk road.
herbijudlestoids: any relationship you noticed is coincidental
nubbins`: hm, i didn't realize AMT was orally active. has admittedly been a while
benkay: there's real lsd going around again?
benkay: i gave up on finding any.
benkay: i actually gave up on ever trying real lsd.
nubbins`: benkay: there always was, just didn't make it quite as far around
nubbins`: after those two guys in the missile silo got busted, i thought i'd never see it again
benkay: i suppose i coulda found some at burning man but its kinda impolite to walk up to strangers saying "hi i've never actually found real acid and i'm hoping to find some this week can you introduce me to someone?"
mircea_popescu: "25I-NBOMe has been implicated in multiple deaths in Australia. In March 2012, a man in Australia died from injuries sustained by running into trees and power poles while intoxicated by 25I-NBOMe."
mircea_popescu: derp. anyone got the vid ?
nubbins`: NBOMe is no fun
mircea_popescu: A Sydney teenager jumped to his death on June 5, 2013. He reportedly jumped off a balcony thinking he could fly.
mircea_popescu: well.... you can do anything.
nubbins`: i dunno about this whole "thinking he could fly" shit
benkay: friends tossed him over. told a story.
nubbins`: ^
nubbins`: i've been pretty fucking high in my time, never thought i could fly
nubbins`: that's not even sensible
mircea_popescu: i think i can fly with regularity
mircea_popescu: usually happens right after boarding.
nubbins`: and eating lots of bran
nubbins`: anyone? no?
herbijudlestoids: nubbins`: i realistically doubt you could objectively identify a single dose of 25I-NBOMe from LSD
herbijudlestoids: its only at 2 dose or above you can start to notice the difference
dub: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datura is fairly famous trip for mkaing peopel think they can fly
ozbot: Datura - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
nubbins`: herbijudlestoids: you can tell by the taste. NBOMe is intensely bitter.
nubbins`: you can tell from a half-hit
herbijudlestoids: nubbins`: whats that got to do with "fun"
nubbins`: oh, we're talking experience?
herbijudlestoids: dub: datura is a plant. are you referring to the tropane alkaloids contained within?
mircea_popescu: nubbins` you know not all peope can taste all bitters
herbijudlestoids: nubbins`: you said its not fun. i said you wouldnt know if i fed it to you
mircea_popescu: of which there are at least a few hundred
nubbins`: NBOME is much less visual, and is punctuated by these sporadic moments of clarity
herbijudlestoids: lel
nubbins`: like you're at the bar having a good time
herbijudlestoids: no offense nubbins` but your subjective analysis of what NBOMe "is", doesnt count for anything
nubbins`: all of a sudden "why the fuck do i feel so sketchy? why are we all moving our bodies like this?"
nubbins`: no offense yourself, but just because you can't tell two completely different drugs apart doesn't mean i can't
dub: herbijudlestoids: I suppose your anaylsis of a what a 'dose' is is sound though
herbijudlestoids: dub: i work it out on approximate basis from drug seizures, so yea
herbijudlestoids: used to be easier when the DEA had their microgram report
mircea_popescu: he;s got a numeric method :D
nubbins`: HEH.
nubbins`: the other point about silk road is that there were this group of guys called "the avengers" who would buy LSD from new vendors and get it tested in a lab for strength
nubbins`: and publish the results
mircea_popescu: so how many sample results did they ever publish ?
nubbins`: dozens
mircea_popescu: over a few years ?
mircea_popescu: dude that place sucked srsly.
herbijudlestoids: http://www.justice.gov/dea/pr/micrograms.shtml
nubbins`: there weren't that many different lsd vendors
ozbot: DEA / Micrograms
mircea_popescu: but anyway, props to them, nice going.
herbijudlestoids: go here for real data
mircea_popescu: where'd they measure it ?
dub: lol
nubbins`: maybe four or five
nubbins`: mircea_popescu, that's what i always wondered
dub: internet experts
mircea_popescu: they never said ?!
nubbins`: not the sort of thing you can just bring somewhere
mircea_popescu: yes, it is.
nubbins`: they had access to some sort of lab
nubbins`: heh.
mircea_popescu: wtf, they never said where they measure and you trusted the results /?!
nubbins`: i bring LSD to the uni, i'll expect a knock on my door
mircea_popescu: how do you know it wasn't just sr sponsored bs ?
herbijudlestoids: errr nubbins` yes it is
benkay: oh man i used to read microgram bulletin religiously
herbijudlestoids: nubbins`: errr no...
nubbins`: dude i don't fucking know, find the thread yourself! it's all there on the forums
mircea_popescu: im too lazy
herbijudlestoids: its like $80 to get any sample tested by HPLC
nubbins`: me too
herbijudlestoids: guess what, until its been HPLCd, you can claim ignorance as to the substance
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids would you trust the reported results of anon third parties that won't share where they measure ?
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: no.
nubbins`: and they'll tell you how many micrograms of lsd are in your tab?
mircea_popescu: makes 2.
herbijudlestoids: nubbins`: its an approximation, but yes.
mircea_popescu: nubbins` most labs in the civilised world will test a sample.
nubbins`: well i guess that's how the avengers did it then, isn't it?
nubbins`: everything is a fight!
mircea_popescu: if they actually did anything.
herbijudlestoids: you can just say youre a concerned mother who found something in their childs schoolbag and want to test it
dub: nubbins`: no o it isnt, fuck you
herbijudlestoids: i know, because i have
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids you claimed to be a woman ?
mircea_popescu: with whig or sans whig ?
herbijudlestoids: nubbins`: its not a fight until you claim something that is obviously not a fact (for people who know) as a fact
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: sans wig, over mail :)
dub: stand back guys he has dones this before
mircea_popescu: so mail fraud.
nubbins`: dub, herb is apparently a wizard
herbijudlestoids: iv listened to you guys spouting all kinds of dumb shit today
nubbins`: poor guy
nubbins`: want a back rub?
herbijudlestoids: id prefer you just verified things before spoutingthem as fact
nubbins`: i'd prefer if you fucked off
nubbins`: guess we're both not getting what we want
herbijudlestoids: k, enjoy your ignorance
nubbins`: what a tool
mircea_popescu: i can't believe someone took that seriously.
dub: this guy was taking shrapnel in khe sanh when you were crapping inyour hands and rubbing it in your face
dub: aww he raged
nubbins`: he was taking shrapnel last week?
nubbins`: no wonder he's so mad
mircea_popescu: nubbins` seriously tho, it's way more likely the avenger troop was just some vendor/ the sr itself doing pr.
dub: I thought we talked about bath salts
nubbins`: mircea_popescu: could be. they did out some frauds tho
mircea_popescu: did the frauds confess ?
nubbins`: they vanished
mircea_popescu: sr would be in a position to see complaints.
nubbins`: well, the review system worked pretty well too
nubbins`: "lsd was bunk, do not buy"
nubbins`: or "nice mild effects" left as a review for 5-MeO-DMT

nubbins`: generally your end product is coming from a handful of sources
nubbins`: a few vendors actually sold pure crystal
nubbins`: that was pretty rare tho
nubbins`: "By the time Silk Road shut down, The Avengers had reviewed 60 vendors, rating them on factors like packaging quality, shipping time, and price."
nubbins`: afaik the forums are gone forever, and with them, all those reviews
mircea_popescu: maybe it was some kid with a night shift at a lab or something.
nubbins`: could be. was a nice service
mircea_popescu: tho, you familiar with the recent mass scandal are you ?
nubbins`: don't think so
mircea_popescu: forensic chemist was discovered to have lied on thousands of reports
mircea_popescu: they ended up having to review ~10k cases

benkay: coinbase?
benkay: what the fuck does that have to do with anything?

the20year: It should be no less than 720
mircea_popescu: they actually buy from you at 724 ?
the20year: Right around there
the20year: let me see what their price would be
diametric: mircea_popescu: they do
diametric: its also locked at time of purchase/sale. I'd be worried about holding your coins in coinbase though.

mircea_popescu: generally it's that they don't understand the benefits of submission
mircea_popescu: they can't put up with the notion that much smarter, much better people are there to lead them, so they end up with issues such as starting alt coins,

mike_c: https://bitcoinproject.net/justdice.php
mircea_popescu: arguably the jd risk is actually > mpbond risk
mircea_popescu: then again i guess arguably the reverse is true too
mike_c: hm. how would you argue that? :)
mircea_popescu: which of the two ?
mike_c: jd risk > mpbor risk
mike_c: i know how to quantify jd risk. mpbor i'm still floundering a bit..
mircea_popescu: jd bot takes 1% margin. mpbot takes significantly more.,
mjr_: mircea_popescu: i just saw you have a euro future, nice
mjr_: was wondering what the index was for options now
nubbins`: i had a dream that i visited romania last night
nubbins`: very nice country, lots of red roofs
mircea_popescu: mjr_ same as always, bitcoincahrts
mike_c: that's only one piece of the risk though, volatility on mpbor is so unpredictable.
mircea_popescu: nubbins` there are.
mjr_: mircea_popescu: does that include gox then?
davout: mircea_popescu: i'd argue it's easier to measure the risk on something random, uniformly distributed than on something chaotic
mircea_popescu: mike_c i did say "arguably" did i
mike_c: yes

moiety: Ik moet deze taal kennen. Ik ben geboren in Nederland. nokawa is the whale high roller man right?
mircea_popescu: that's not the point lol. how do you know they are ?
mike_c: but the risk on JD is all about the whales
mike_c: and they are not uniformly distributed
davout: moiety: waar in nederland ?
davout: mircea_popescu: because of the way it's computed
mircea_popescu: what, a wizard did it ?
mircea_popescu: either show it or don't show it.
mike_c: but rolls != volatility. rolls being uniformly distributed does not mean returns will be predictable.

mike_c: the only concern for an investor would be that their computation method has an exploitable flaw
davout: what i'm trying to say is that the returns on JD are based on something random, on which you can use statistics to infer stuff, on the other hand, market prices are not random, but chaotic, hence it not being comparable
mike_c: that is greater than 1% edge.
mjr_: still looks like mt gox is part of bitcoincharts
mjr_: but i haven't verified it yet
mircea_popescu: davout just because something is based on something random you can't actually proclaim it uniform tho
mircea_popescu: f(x) = x + rnd(x) is based on something random and quite biased
mjr_: its listed under USD markets...
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 13 @ 0.55092307 = 7.162 BTC [-] {5}
davout: the distribution is irrelavant, what i'm saying is that there is one
mircea_popescu: ok so there is one.
davout: whereas on chaotic values there is no distribution, no mean, no standard deviation etc
mircea_popescu: ><
mircea_popescu: what are you, like new ?
davout: talk to me like i'm five, or a golden retriever for that matter
mircea_popescu: any set has a mean.
davout: any finite set has a mean
mircea_popescu: once it has a mean, any element of that set has a sdev
mircea_popescu: what, you're proposing jd is working on infinite sets ?
davout: no, i'm saying there are fundamental differences in random values, and chaotic values
davout: s/in/between/
mircea_popescu: such as ?
jurov: jd game will always be between 1 and 65565
jurov: whereas bitcoin price ?
davout: them not obeying the usual laws of statistics
mike_c: yeah, but nobody cares what the rolls are, we care about investor returns.
mircea_popescu: what is this, mysticity ?
davout: hang on, gonna fish that book about chaos i read a while ago, really really interesting read
mircea_popescu: jurov but any option will be worth between itself and nothing
mike_c: it only matters if investor returns on JD are predictable. which 1) they are if there are a bunch of small bettors, 2) they are not if there are whales.
mircea_popescu: anyway. this discussion is not really resolvable, hence the arguables early on
mircea_popescu: we could talk about it 4evar
mike_c: before we shut it down, i've been trying to figure out how mpbor capital needs are calculated.
mike_c: you confused me the other day when you said the put sales didn't trigger a capital need by mpoe
benkay: largest amount of btc needed to cover positions over the course of the month, right?
mike_c: oh, so it only triggers a capital need if the price moves adversely?
mircea_popescu: mike_c i said that ?!

jurov: these options were covered by seller, not by mpoe
mike_c: right, but mpoe had to buy them, where did that money come from?
nubbins`: doge
mircea_popescu: mike_c yeah seriously.
mircea_popescu: whosoever sells an option has first to create it, which takes collateral. in the case of mpbot this goes into its collateral needs for the month.
mircea_popescu: whosoever buys an option must has the btc to pay for it. in the case of mpbot this goes into its collateral needs for the month
mircea_popescu: at the end of the month the widest berth of that collateral need is taken as "the needed collatera" figure
mike_c: ok, so by purchasing those options it did trigger a capital need that bondholders will collect interest on. right?
