mircea_popescu: that's not what they are. they're statistical dampeners.
pankkake: no, I just take them as trust
mircea_popescu: the only thing someone's aggregate score tells you is how likely it is for you to have someone who knows him in your network.
mircea_popescu: and the individual score is not "how trustworthy is this guy" but "how well i am acquainted with this guy", ie, how valuable my input may be to a third party asking for references.

nubbins`: interesting system
mircea_popescu: nubbins` it's really how the wot's supposed to work.
TestingUnoDosTre: intruiging
nubbins`: too true
TestingUnoDosTre: I'm confused though
mircea_popescu: it's a web of trust not a web of facebook likes.
nubbins`: i think the highest rating i've left anyone is maybe a 2.
TestingUnoDosTre: Let's say your .001 trader comes around looking to trade 5
pankkake: but I could trust someone I know nothing about
TestingUnoDosTre: how do you judge his merit with your system
mike_c: thanks for rating mp. i have found wot useful even for someone like me with a small graph. you rate people you trust, and then can leech off their ratings.
mircea_popescu: TestingUnoDosTre suppose this guy comes to trade 5 with you. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: you don't know him, but know me. so you come to me ☟︎
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 2 @ 0.07349999 = 0.147 BTC [-]

nubbins`: ;;rated mircea_popescu
gribble: You rated user mircea_popescu on Thu Oct 17 15:12:06 2013, with a rating of 2, and supplied these additional notes: patron of the arts.
nubbins`: yep, top of my charts
mircea_popescu: and i tell you "we've done a bunch of 0.0001 trades and i trust him to so and so and back and forth"
mircea_popescu: and you go "but specifically in this context ? "
mircea_popescu: and i go "well maybe X or maybe Y" etc.
TestingUnoDosTre: too much thinking. I'm going to go create a web of likes and dislikes ;)
BingoBoingo: Basically it is what LinkedIN imagined it could be ☟︎
mircea_popescu: lol it's the thinking that makes it powerful tho.
mircea_popescu: i can cut through the chase in about ten minutes because of it,
TestingUnoDosTre: just joking. you explained the concept quite well
mircea_popescu: and that's quite why i;'m so distrustful of various "Experts" and "ceos" and whatnot that don't have one.
pankkake: people accept anyone's friendship in linkedin. I always get recruiters as shortest paths, it's useless :(
TestingUnoDosTre: I absolutely hate recruits on linked in. It's like they believe their likelyhood of staying with a company depends on how many contacts they have
BingoBoingo: Basically the part where you contact the raters is why the apserzersorLords aren't keen on the WoT and default to Pirateat40 to justify their sloth
pankkake: they did some things right lately, you can *endorse* people
nubbins`: linkedin sucks
mircea_popescu: meanwhile at the farm of evil, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=271711.msg5902521#msg5902521
nubbins`: i'm suspicious of people who add me on it
TestingUnoDosTre: I've had some Indian dude that I briefly hung out with at work like 3 years ago ask for endorsements on his project management skills. I complied...
nubbins`: heh
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo the who ?!
nubbins`: yeah, i've had people i worked with 3 years ago "endorse" me for skills out of the blue
nubbins`: doesn't make any sense
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: The forum aspies
mircea_popescu: oh oh
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: And the wanna be Ceo aspies
nubbins`: "the hr manager at your first job out of university has endorsed you for the following skills"
nubbins`: GREAT
pankkake: I've been endorsed for skills the people endorsing me knew nothing about. that's because it bugs you to endorse people…
mircea_popescu: useless social bs.
nubbins`: ^
BingoBoingo: The people for whom any social interaction is a greater burden then clicking button on whatever virtual BBQ retreat they go to
nubbins`: linkedin: it's like facebook, but without your friends and family
mircea_popescu: kinda why i love nanotube. he's a geek, and he's not making the wot any more social than it is
nubbins` endorsed you for the following skills: beard-growing
pankkake: I removed a lot of friends this year actually
pankkake: ahah
mircea_popescu endorses you for your girlfriend. and also endorses her.
mircea_popescu: where en-dors-ing would mean...well...
mircea_popescu: something to do with behinds.
ninjashogun: mircea_popescu, weaker than usual pun :)
TestingUnoDosTre: oh my gawd that comment is priceless https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=271711.msg5902582#msg5902582
nubbins` endorsals your gf for the following skills
nubbins`: rusty trombones
nubbins`: hot carls
mircea_popescu: it's getting harder and harder to argue with that chick
mircea_popescu: davout she totally owned joo :D
mircea_popescu: endorsaled!
nubbins`: her ignore button is no longer yellow, -1
mircea_popescu: "would ignore again ++++"
pankkake: because of thermos
nubbins`: heh
nubbins`: pankkake really?
pankkake: yes, because it slows down the server or some crap
nubbins`: so you could say that thermos has... INSULATED her?
nubbins` cackles
pankkake: because that obviously can't be cached…
nubbins`: btctalk is fucked these past few days
nubbins`: i get a 500 error upon first connect, without fail
nubbins`: hit refresh, it loads
pankkake: who's behind https://bitcointa.lk/ by the way?
nubbins`: open a thread w/ images, all broken. refresh, all there.

mircea_popescu: anyone seen revenge of the cheerleaders btw ?
nubbins`: the mint doesn't fuck off with these "9x% sold out!" emails
nubbins`: i read "9x% sold out" and i translate as "we're having a hard time getting rid of these shit coins!"
mircea_popescu: possibly worse than canibal holocaust. also tits and ass.
benkay: what's this notion you have BingoBoingo?
nubbins`: CH borders on Troma territory
nubbins`: like what was the one... I Was a Nymphomaniac Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell, or something?
nubbins` shakes head at the memory
mircea_popescu: nubbins` revenge of the cheerleaders thing is basically "rent an old space opera B set, make some floozies run naked around it"
nubbins`: funny style of revenge
mircea_popescu: it's not that it doesn't make sense
mircea_popescu: it's more that you can't figure out what it doesn't make sense about.

nubbins`: resulting in such situations as this:
nubbins`: ...as i fail to find the link
nubbins`: anyway a garbage truck was making its way down a steep road, lost control, picked up TWO CARS parked on the curb and brought them down with it

nubbins`: "Alshaek said through an interpreter that if he'd known that, it would have changed everything. Alshaek said he would not longer have been responsible for disciplining his daughter — that would fall to the husband."

mircea_popescu: RagnarsBitch who the fuck is ragnar ?
Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, they just finished a 5 mio funding round
BingoBoingo: Well, WHat came first them or the PR saying how to clone Pirate post?
mircea_popescu: ragnar le viking ?
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo pirate post was april 2012, kraken was like august 2013ish
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic except they had a 600 btc hole from before.
mircea_popescu: that's 3-4mn of the round.
Apocalyptic: i guess that's why they did it
mircea_popescu: and in general holes are rarely solo.
BingoBoingo: See, the Kraken name's jsut always seemed too toxic.
Apocalyptic: but then kinda dubious why would some potential investors want to patch that hole
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic you saw actual paper that it actually happened ?
BingoBoingo: Apocalyptic: WHo says they know better?
mircea_popescu: in general nothing keeps someone from claiming they got funded.
Apocalyptic: I didn't
BingoBoingo: Apocalyptic: "Investors" patched Vircurex's 1000+ BTC hole the first time...
Apocalyptic: true, so you think it's just some PR move on thin air ?
Apocalyptic: BingoBoingo, unwillingly so
asciilifeform: re: kraken et al: makes me wonder how much chumpatronium fuel is left.
mircea_popescu: i don't think anything any particular way

mircea_popescu: but their pr is spiraling out of control in a certain pattern. that's usually the end sign.
BingoBoingo: Apocalyptic: You might be confusing that with the second hole in vircurex.
Apocalyptic: I may indeed
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform peak chump actually was 2011.
mircea_popescu: in btc terms
Apocalyptic: haven't followed that vircurex story since the beginning
asciilifeform: '11 was before the fiat world shat forth the 'btc investment phunds' etc
asciilifeform: so perhaps peak chump is now. or, shortly.
Apocalyptic: <mircea_popescu> i don't think anything any particular way // your question seemed to imply otherwise
BingoBoingo: Vircurex went: 1) hole 2) Investment 3) hole boogaloo 4) scam 5) BTC-TC and Buttfunder died 6) Cryptostocks scamissance 7) Advertising "Interest" 8) Freeze Mothafucker

asciilifeform: ~lynx sized, afaik
mircea_popescu: i originally thought they're basically stray cats that took to the wild

mircea_popescu: benkay sure, but that was never in question. if I have 5 that owe me 600 btc pay to the same one address, the fact that i can prove i have received 600 btc in that address is neither here nor there
mircea_popescu: the fact that i can't univocally resolve their claims is the problem, and decoying it doens't breed confidence.

benkay: no shit they signed from an addy that wasn't that to which their 600 missing were sent?
benkay: lawd ahmighty
mircea_popescu: benkay no no it's like this :
mircea_popescu: reports surfaced that they showed the same deposit address(es) to multiple users.
mircea_popescu: those people sent btc there.
asciilifeform: this, for some reason, inescapably reminds me of the folks who sell the fake piss to dope aficionados
mircea_popescu: the fact that they can show that some btc made it there is not relevant.
mircea_popescu: the fact that they can't apportion the sent btc to the various users is the problem
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: The way to reduce piss test fraud is to give portions of the tested at times asparagus and other times no asparagus
mircea_popescu: somehow nobody picked on "hey, one address per transaction has its issues as a model" as a result, either.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the common factor isn't the sham, but the lack of any serious desire on the part of the shammed to probe deeper.

asciilifeform: - People had already devised all necessary things. Once, long ago, mankind developed in leaps and bounds - not only did the objects around us change constantly, but so did the words we used. In those days there were a great many names for a creative person - engineer, poet, scholar. And all of them constantly invented new things. But that was mankind's childhood. And then it reached maturity. Creativity did no

mircea_popescu: about 200mn of us citizens live in the fictitious world of bezzle. they never use cash for anything. about 50mn us citizens live in the real economy, they mostly use tide for currency, but at the fringe there's this exchange of people who work for the fictitious economy,
asciilifeform: the way it was explained to me, by one wretch, is that many folks who refuse to use ordinary banks do so because they were hounded by creditors (ordinary ones, and government alimony collectors)
mircea_popescu: but then try to obtain their wages in actual cash
mircea_popescu: nope. it's mostly because they are not part of that world.
mircea_popescu: like you know, some people don't wear dockers, because they're not social justice warriors, the women they fuck don't even know what dockers are, etc.
asciilifeform: how does using paper benjamins release you from bezzle?
mircea_popescu: it's not that it releases you from it,
mircea_popescu: it's just that it makes no sense for you to keep virtual benjamins if you do nothing in the bezzle.
mircea_popescu: by now it's pretty much two different currencies.
mircea_popescu: the 401k-dollar and the cocaine-stained-dollar,

kakobrekla: double lel.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but yes they do. suppose you work for company x.
mircea_popescu: you can't instruct them to pay you in cash.
asciilifeform: in u.s. you can usually become 'contractor' and get your pay in whole, then you are required to pay the tax collectors manually
mircea_popescu: no, you can't.
mircea_popescu: if you become a contractor you will be paid by check
mircea_popescu: and that will be deposited in your bank account
mircea_popescu: and you can't take the cash out.
mircea_popescu: on one hand because you are legally required to keep your money in the bank
mircea_popescu: on the other hand because you're not rlegally allowed to make withdrawals.
ThickAsThieves: i missed something, why can't someone withdraw their money?
asciilifeform: since when? every bank i ever used let you take it out. granted, if you take more than $xxxx in one day, the anti-terrorism folks get a phone call.
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: I was unwaiverably ineligible, because crazy
benkay: another cuh-ray-zee aspect of the bezzle is the plastic rewards thing that makes cash more expensive.
chetty: well you can withdraw, but its not so easy etc.
ThickAsThieves: yes the $xxxx thing is a real throttle
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so then what part of "not allowed" don't you follow ?
mircea_popescu: you're allowed except you're not and if you do we fuck you up ?
mircea_popescu: let's run some scenarios. i am a contractor, working for you. you write me a check for 100k.
mircea_popescu: i go to bank, order them to pay me 100k.
mircea_popescu: they tell me they can't.
mircea_popescu: problem solved.
mircea_popescu: i order them to pay me 10k.
mircea_popescu: they tell me they can;t.
mircea_popescu: problem also solved.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 145 @ 0.00591 = 0.857 BTC [-] {4}
mircea_popescu: they then proceed me to tell me that they can pay some, but can't tell me how much.
ThickAsThieves: you could do 9k per day without much fuss
mircea_popescu: if i hire someone to go take money out every day for a year, 300 bucks at a time,
mircea_popescu: and keep it at home, i'll be in violation of the "corps must keep their funds i na bank" rule.
mircea_popescu: in any case any qty of cash will be confiscated by govt agents on sight
mircea_popescu: and on it goes.
asciilifeform: that last part, is, afaik, true
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves the fuss will be that on the third time yo udo it your house will be confiscated,
asciilifeform: but there isn't an official 'humans must keep cash in a bank' rule atm.
ThickAsThieves: hmm
mircea_popescu: pending you prove that you have a "legitimate reason" and in any case you face prosecution under the "trying to avoid prosecution for using your own money" laws.
asciilifeform: you are theoretically welcome to keep your pay in gold, or cement, so long as the tax was paid
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, but contractors aren't physical persons, they're legal persons, and that rule does exist.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform very theoretically. in the sense you're theoretically welcome to shoot the president.
mircea_popescu: so no, participation in the us chumpatron is voluntary in the sense participation in the communist party was voluntary.

asciilifeform: cross off where not applicable.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you mean like, a dual php/grad student with no assets ?
asciilifeform: (perhaps it should be considered a sub-variety of medieval serf)
TestingUnoDosTre: wait wait wait. How is a lowly engineer below an elderly engineer or businessman that's mortgaged up to the gills
mircea_popescu: ^
mircea_popescu: i agree, those two also seem reversed.
asciilifeform: the elderly engineer could take his next few salary cheques and run
asciilifeform: theoretically.
mircea_popescu: the kid could run as is
mircea_popescu: much less theoretical.
asciilifeform: if the kid could 'breathe vacuum', he would probably have run already.
mircea_popescu: kids CAN breathe vacuum
mircea_popescu: that they think they can't is what keeps society in order
rithm: i'm so confused right now
mircea_popescu: rithm most notable side effect of this chan
asciilifeform: 'iso-standard' penniless kid typically relies on various social connections (blood relatives, chums) for survival
rithm: true dat
mircea_popescu: also known as http://bash.bitcoin-assets.com/?quote=90
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform easier to do in better countries
mircea_popescu: (which in this context means, non-anglo-saxon)
rithm: WHAT IN THE FUCK CAPS LOCK OH shit kids can't breathe in a vaccuum they turn dead
mircea_popescu: metaphorical kids, metaphorical vacuum, metaphorical breathing.
asciilifeform: rithm: understand 'breathe vacuum' as 'steal enough for a plane ticket and move to afghanistan'
rithm: if you had a jar and closed and sucked all of the air out
rithm: and you would call that a vacuum
rithm: but I would say nothing separates the jar
mircea_popescu: rithm if you took the average 16yo and paradroped them naked anywhere in the world,
mircea_popescu: they would live to be 18.
mircea_popescu: if you took the average 60 yo and paradropped them naked anywhere in the world, they would not live to be 65.
rithm: you give them 2 years
rithm: after being naked and alone
rithm: that's too many
asciilifeform: phun phact. every lab that uses mice has glue traps.
mircea_popescu: naked teenagers aren';t alone for long.
TestingUnoDosTre: I thought the quote was because people tend to speak here before thinking...
asciilifeform: and ~100% of dropped mice end in them
mircea_popescu: TestingUnoDosTre it's more of a +iq effect. just being here makes one smarter.
rithm: if the teenagers find drugs or soul crushing rules to live by they might make it
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: picture moving an average (male) u.s. suburban kid to... anywhere
rithm: the old people similarly will need drugs to survive
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform he'll be fine.
mircea_popescu: just cry like a little bitch for a coupla weeks.
mircea_popescu: byt the time he's 50 however... he can no longer be fine. no matter what.
mircea_popescu: in this sense, i would say heroin addiction is a fine analogue.
