moiety: i wanna go to that pub!
moiety: !up stormlight
thestringpuller: well there is an arcade pub, with old 90's arcade games scattered about.
thestringpuller: but the one I'm going to is a skateboard ride away. So I can get drunk as shit and skate home.
moiety: sounds dangerous thestringpuller lol
mircea_popescu: yeah hypnotize is weak
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight mass slow + berserk + blind on a hero with infinte mp and archers against a slow infantry -> carnage.
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, totally; still reading comments actually, I got a bit of nostalgia now :D nice to see lots of comments on your blog made by krossfire as well
DreadKnight: ok, finally done
mircea_popescu: you know vlad ?
DreadKnight: got the privilege to meet him back in the day I started getting into game development
mircea_popescu: smart guy.
DreadKnight: I wonder why he hasn't sticked with making games, he had quite a few decent prototypes done in pretty much no time
mircea_popescu: not much money into it ?
DreadKnight: :D
DreadKnight: back then it sure was the case for indie game devs
DreadKnight: now things are changing, more potential
DreadKnight: will try to catch up with him soon, it's been too long
mircea_popescu: i think he's still semi-active on his blog.
DreadKnight: has that issue for years afaik
DreadKnight: last time I talked to him about 2-3 years ago, I recall his latest game with the zeppelin that he wanted me to try
DreadKnight: he seems to be more into tweeting that blogging nowadays xD
DreadKnight: than*

mircea_popescu: a hole is by definition empty.
mike_c: damnit
mircea_popescu: anyway, oglaf for instance has close to 1% ctr atm
mircea_popescu: so counterintuitively the ads are actually good.
asciilifeform: ctr?
mircea_popescu: click through

asciilifeform: bose patent << are they also suing sony? or any of the 100 or so other manufacturers of antiphase audio gizmos ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform o you had to turn off a filter ?
decimation: no, they are suing someone who has $3 bn
asciilifeform: 'adblock' plugin
decimation: lawsuits are only useful if there's blood to suck from the other party
mike_c: well, they are suing apple now right?
decimation: yep
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ah i c.
asciilifeform ashamed to admit, owns some bose hardware. mainly because nobody else comes close in plain old noise zapping. (tried many vendors.)
decimation: ascii what about those isolating in-ear buds?
asciilifeform: decimation: that's what i have. bose's. with antiphase.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform ashamed to admit, owns some bose hardware. mainly because nobody else comes close in plain old noise zapping. (tried many vendors.) << I feel that
asciilifeform: if, say, monsanto - sold a set with an extra -5dB attenuation, made of reprocessed kittens and personally signed by obama, at 20x the cost - i'd buy it...
BingoBoingo: ^ Concur to many's butthurt

decimation: do you find them more comfortable than head-clamp style headphones?
asciilifeform: then somebody asks 'why not shooting plugs?' and answer, 'try wearing those for 14 hrs'
asciilifeform: decimation: had those previously. also, unsurprisingly, bose.
asciilifeform: decimation: gave them to pet, who doesn't give flying fuck about noise
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: <asciilifeform> then somebody asks 'why not shooting plugs?' and answer, 'try wearing those for 14 hrs' << actually had a weird dream last night
BingoBoingo: Nagant bent its firing pin
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: my understanding is that this is virtually unheard of

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: phun phact. russia produced 308 winchester since early 1970s. why? brezhnev received a costly hunting rifle as a gift from usa. needed to feed it...
BingoBoingo: Would still like a Yugo SKS evwentually
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> BingoBoingo: phun phact. russia produced 308 winchester since early 1970s. why? brezhnev received a costly hunting rifle as a gift from usa. needed to feed it... << Similar with stalin and his 1911
asciilifeform: afaik russia never mass-produced .45
asciilifeform: as evidenced by the fact of lend-lease 'chicago typewriters' remaining mostly unused, languishing in warehouses to this day

mircea_popescu: i like it when my shit makes circles :D
BingoBoingo: <decimation> my office mate got a suppressor recently, took 9 months for ATF to approve paperwork << Missouri to missouri lacks the hurdles
decimation: he had a practical use for it too: was out hunting, saw deer, didn't have time to apply hearing protection before getting off a shot (with 30-06), his ears rang for several hours
BingoBoingo: <decimation> my office mate got a suppressor recently, took 9 months for ATF to approve paperwork << Walther P-22 or whatever no wait with a probably missouri residence
BingoBoingo: <decimation> he had a practical use for it too: was out hunting, saw deer, didn't have time to apply hearing protection before getting off a shot (with 30-06), his ears rang for several hours << This is why supressors are UK legal
decimation: afaik they are legal and common throughout northern europe (where guns are legal)
decimation: what purpose does it serve to require people who shoot guns to deafen themselves?
BingoBoingo: <decimation> what purpose does it serve to require people who shoot guns to deafen themselves? << Puritan baggage
BingoBoingo: decimation: Mazing though that the two most killing calibers here are .22 lr and police 9mm and .38
decimation: killing humans?
BingoBoingo: decimation: What else do people keep stats for?
BingoBoingo: Groundhogs readily fall to a tack hammer
decimation: .22 lr pistols have always been popular
BingoBoingo: Also .22 lr hollow points have just enough space for a bit of pleasantly colored phosphorous
decimation: um, why would you want phosphorous in your round?
BingoBoingo: <decimation> .22 lr pistols have always been popular << Problem is they don't cycle well on subsonic loads
BingoBoingo: <decimation> um, why would you want phosphorous in your round? << fire
decimation: so you can burn someone from the inside after your hollow point smashes their organs?
BingoBoingo: <decimation> um, why would you want phosphorous in your round?
BingoBoingo: decimation: WIth .22 lr not usually persons, groundhogs and other vermin
decimation: ah that makes more sense
BingoBoingo: Anyways normal .22 lr blunt lead cheap shit tens to ricohet in the skull after it penetrates

mircea_popescu: unless, of course, you're trying to make everyone dumber.
decimation: which is generally the goal of most gov't meetings, gov't education, etc
mircea_popescu: right. then it becomes fashionable and before you know it the dumb broads in your household are giving pps to each other. and you can't do shit about it, because they're not your slaves, they're your "equal partners"
mircea_popescu: very fucking far that'll go, i'm sure.
asciilifeform: except that removing pp will not cure retardation. just as removing maggots will not resurrect corpse.
mircea_popescu: in fact : traditional views on sexuality impose monogamy as a standard because that's the only way to hide just how dumb and inept a commune actually is : by keeping it real small.

In summary, we project the Hispanic share of total wealth to increase from 2.2 percent in 2010 to either 2.6 percent or 3.2

danielpbarron: i know, right? i was cracking up reading it
mircea_popescu: decimation it only indirectly results from a too long period of wealth and power. i know, for i've been wealthy and powerful my entire life. the trick is to not buy into comfort. that's the direct causation : once people become comfortable and think "i'm too wealthy and powerful to be here fucking with a wrench inside this engine on the side of a road".
mircea_popescu: pretty soon it's "we're too cool for our children to be killed off like the worthless shitbags they are"
mircea_popescu: and from there on... anyone with a wrench can wrench a deal out of you.

mircea_popescu: the point is specifically to be able to serve everywhere, so to speak,
mircea_popescu: because the relative value of things can't really be fixed.
mircea_popescu: chetty likely not.
asciilifeform points out that this was the situation in ussr. virtually everyone was technically reserve corps.

mircea_popescu: if the kingdom actually worked like teh king's ministers propose it does, i wouldn't be looking into the yard of the king's minister's wife at the car of the guy the minister doesn't know she fucks
mircea_popescu: sort of thing.
jurov: so if ascii gets jailed for jaywalking, we shall expect another national guard gathering?

asciilifeform: (soviet term, in contrast to the 'little jail' - a jail in the usual sense; the big one - ussr.)
decimation: "we are coming up to march 2014, so I've been waiting 3 years to be sentenced, this is most unusual. Usually in a federal case you are incarcerated within 60 days after being found guilty."
decimation: usg must be scared of something
asciilifeform: in cases like his, it is traditional for the inquisitor to make a series of offers to lighten punishment substantially in exchange for agent recruitment
asciilifeform: (aka turning stoolie)
asciilifeform: we can surmise that he refused one or more, but they aren't done yet
asciilifeform: so i don't see 'scared' - only 'patient.'
asciilifeform: if nothaus is cut loose, we should expect him to turn up eventually in the role of a karpeles or brock pierce.
decimation: well I tend to agree with your point about recruitment, but it's not clear to me what he is going to be recruited to do exactly.
decimation: an enterprising defense team would have him start another altcoin for the purpose of turning against it
asciilifeform: we'll know what it is once inquisitor makes up his mind, and nothaus surrenders
decimation: why didn't folks attempt to leave the "big jail" during ussr times?
asciilifeform: they certainly did.
decimation: seems like that would be the thing to do
asciilifeform: many of the same issues facing folks who want to leave usa.
asciilifeform: (a trip requires a destination)
decimation: I guess it's hard to escape with family intact
asciilifeform: back to the treatment of nothaus - this was SOP for dissident types, at least post-stalin. you land, not in a jail cell, but a comfortable 'hotel room', where no one hangs you upside down, no! - but well-dressed, educated fellows have little chats with you over good coffee - to make you 'see reason.'
thestringpuller: decimation: that's very depressing :(
asciilifeform: if you 'see reason' - you're a free man. get to keep doing what you were doing. except with a little microphone listening, or the like.
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> we can surmise that he refused one or more, but they aren't done yet << something like that.
mircea_popescu: <decimation> I guess it's hard to escape with family intact << people with families have no business escaping.
mircea_popescu: their job is to work the soil and make babies.
asciilifeform: this is why a man with a profession that puts him in range of escape was required to have family.
mircea_popescu: quite.
asciilifeform: e.g. diplomats, military attaches, competitive athletes
thestringpuller: what if you don't want to make babies?
decimation: yes, their fate is to stand and take whatever comes I suppose
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: then you don't get posted abroad.
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller then eiher it's not a family, you're being forced to or you will be forced to.
asciilifeform: incidentally, pretty much none of the above were sent abroad with actual wives, children
asciilifeform: they'd get theatrical ones
decimation: spies, presumably
asciilifeform: as diplomat, your 'wife' might actually be someone whose only job is to shoot you in the head if you start to 'turn.'
thestringpuller: sounds like huxley's world would make that a moot issue (humans bred in tanks)
thestringpuller: it also seems being an orphan is more beneficial in that regard too...
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller well tbh, i dun see why i'd have wanted to leave huxley's world. just hang out with the boss guy down at the bar.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what, like bitcoin ? << ameri-zek could escape if he had 10^7 usd or 10^4 bitcoin, say. but he won't ever see either, 'like his own ears without a mirror.'
asciilifeform: now, if you're willing to live like a feral dog, it isn't even necessary to leave the country. i recall, a few years ago, an article about one fellow who lived in a dugout in a u.s. national park. for ~30 years. he was caught by pure chance. ☟︎
asciilifeform: tourist noticed a puff of smoke coming from a tree stump.
asciilifeform: (it was his chimney. disguised partizan-style.)
asciilifeform: if tourist hadn't strayed miles from the road, if wind had been stronger - the dugout would be there still, with its inhabitant.
decimation: that's long enough to claim adverse possession in many states
asciilifeform: not on federal land
asciilifeform: and, in many (most?) states, adverse possession is virtually impossible to pull off (title holder must be aware of the squatter and do nothing for xx years)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform 10k btc ? foreals ?
asciilifeform: see dugout man above
asciilifeform: he needed 0 btc
mircea_popescu: the point is to live like a feral dog AND leave the country.
asciilifeform: but paid with other things
mircea_popescu: you gotta break the circle of "is necessary"
mircea_popescu: that's what the dam is built out of. convenience.
mircea_popescu: inconvenience yourself and you'll be free, but otherwise, you're predictable, and in being predictable you'll be a tool.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: elaborate?
mircea_popescu: on which part ?
decimation: yeah that's what most of the "early retirement" folks advocate. if you can live on $20k per year you can retire now if you have any assets to speak of
asciilifeform: decimation: the 20k still have to come from somewhere.
asciilifeform: if they come from my being a stonemason in mexico city, as far as i can tell i'm then already in a jail
mircea_popescu: decimation most of humanity lives on less than ten bux a week.
mircea_popescu: that's... 500 a year
decimation: they can even pay to have their kids escape to the great 'el norte'
mircea_popescu: somehow.
mircea_popescu: not all do, notice.
asciilifeform: the other thing mexicans, eskimos, whoever, anyone but homo americanus have is - tribe. ☟︎

decimation: the eastern metropolis is especially bad on this count. high population density but everyone is alone
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: let's say you were on the other side of the wire. my side. and you could escape, if you turned on that 'dulap' and gave up... cock&balls.
asciilifeform: now, is that life?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i tend to break things.
mircea_popescu: there's very little doubt in my mind that if i were in the sort of situation most folk over there enjoy, i'd simply be shooting people.
asciilifeform: i recently went to a zoo, where they had cheetahs. one cheetah was a little different from the others. every time i see him, he's clearly preoccupied with looking for a hole in the fence.
asciilifeform: if he were a russian 'zek', he'd have a red stripe in his id papers.
asciilifeform: 'побегушник'
mircea_popescu: which ironically makes the entire "terrorist" thing quite appropriate, except, i wouldn't shot them for the show (which is what terrorism implies, that you kill people for no reason than to impress other people). i'd do it because their continued existence is incompatible with mine.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform did i ever tell you about the two pellicans ?
asciilifeform: ?
decimation: which is exactly the attitude that the us used to have back in the pioneer days
decimation: before they were won by the English...
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform my only lingering regret from my days in costa rica is that one day i've visited a bird reserve. a large geodome sorta thing with a lot of birds in it.
mircea_popescu: among which two pelicans. which had figured where the door was, and what a door is. and were angling together to perhaps scare a dumbass tourist and manage to get out.
mircea_popescu: i have no idea why i didn't just take the birds across.
asciilifeform: lol!
asciilifeform: are they any good - to eat?
mircea_popescu: i guess a lot of foreign military officers wondered why they've not simply shot hitler at any point in the 30s, just walk up to him and boom.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform im sure they couldn't have survived in ther wild, but i dun see why that should matter.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i recall at least two who wrote just this
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform im sure the reason is exactly like the discussion re the altcoin
mircea_popescu: by the time you realise you should have it's too late.
asciilifeform: naturally.
mircea_popescu: there's actually an oglaf on the topic, too
mircea_popescu: http://media.oglaf.com/comic/chronotherapy.jpg
asciilifeform: lol, i recall this one.
mircea_popescu: guy shooting hitler would necessarily live in an alt-universe where shooting hitler's death is not justified by hitler being hitler, and so on.
mircea_popescu: this is a major reason to not punish murder, imo.
mircea_popescu: maybe the murderer had a point.
mircea_popescu: certainly murder of political figures is always justified on the face. they were, after all, political figures.
decimation: I suppose that's the point of jury nullification
mircea_popescu: yeah but it mixes the people in there. what'd the people know.
mircea_popescu: 1930s german jury'd have not nulified hitler murder.
decimation: well, in the village the people would know, not in the city
mircea_popescu: this is such nonsense.
mircea_popescu: vilage people are actualy a lot dumber than city people. they just have much fewer avenues to display their inanity.

benkay: mircea_popescu: DERPs are backstopped to the sum of BTC brought in by sales of DERP shares, is that correct?
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron if there's religious interest forums you know that i don't / other stuff you're already doing feel free to throw that into the mix.
mircea_popescu: benkay nah.
benkay: backstopped by your reputation and promise to pay?

asciilifeform: no prizes for guessing fate of the owner.
kuzetsa: fine fine, yeah... it has happened, and more than just pirates have done the "bury something to keep it safe" tactic, but just because it's common enough that it's "not unheard of" doesn't make it "actually a common practice"

cazalla: DreadKnight, someone like her doing bitcoin news on youtube would get views instead of that ditzy asian girl on followthecoin

kuzetsa: cazalla: so as per privmsg, I don't understand why you called me a faggot
DreadKnight: kuzetsa, that bitcoin channel seems to be dying lately, too quiet, dogecoin more fun
kuzetsa: benkay: what's a faminist?
kuzetsa: [18:01:35] <cazalla> no matter how many men you throw under the bus, being a feminist is not going to lead to them fucking you
kuzetsa: [18:01:59] <kuzetsa> what?
kuzetsa: [18:02:42] <kuzetsa> huh, noticed just now that I typoed on feminist... is "faminist" a word I'm just unfamiliar with?
kuzetsa: [18:03:14] <kuzetsa> is that misspelling a word and it means something? it really was just a typo, I didn't mean to confuse.
mircea_popescu: <DreadKnight> cazalla, why? xD she thinks she can do better writing crappy stuff and getting funded on patreon.com apparently << such idiocy.
cazalla: kuzetsa, i'm not sure what the problem is?
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, was expecting you would say that
kuzetsa: cazalla: well I don't understand what you're saying about men fucking me (or not) because I throw them under a bus or whatever... or why you called me a faggot
cazalla: kuzetsa, i thought you were saying you're a feminist and that i use slut shaming language
cazalla: fwiw, i don't object to nikasaur dressing trashy
kuzetsa: your definition of "trashy", and how you used it sure did sound like slut shaming
cazalla: but it is trashy
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, most people only care about charisma and looks and that's why they fund her, not really interested in her writing; it's nice she does what she likes but that's different from what she's good at apparently
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, saying "such idiocy" to whatever I say without arguments doesn't bring much to the table of conversation
kuzetsa: cazalla: mostly I'm just confused about why feminism = faggot (that logical jump confuses me)
benkay: there's nothing wrong with being trashy

DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, you're probably offended because you're a blogger yourself, but since you started blogging apparently you flamed more popular bloggers, so even you agree that not everyone should be writing stuff publicly :P
benkay: excessive rouge, lipstick, heels, etc. it's a good look on the right chick.
DreadKnight: and tattoos
benkay: yeah sure - tattoos are great as well
kuzetsa: benkay: a lot of women chose to dress how they dress, wear their hair, makeup, tatoos, clothes, etc. for themselves, not for the benefit of others
cazalla: yeah, i like it on the right girl but i describe it as trashy, nfi why kuzetsa would take offense
benkay: it's clearly not for others.
benkay: doesn't mean we're not watching and watched ourselves.
benkay: i do a pile of sales. constantly. *i* dress for others.
kuzetsa nods
benkay: when I didn't, I didn't.
benkay: ripped jeans, mohawk, the works.
cazalla: kuzetsa, because imo feminists are faggots eg andreas derpopolous
kuzetsa: choices about outwardly expressing whatever self-image one has about ones self (and/or other reasons for dressing one way or another) just doesn't seem like a friendly thing to use as a basis for labeling someone as "trashy"
DreadKnight: internet is full of porn, girls who undress on webcam; dressing slutty = more attention; ( . ) ( . ) = $$$
benkay: look there's a hobo on the street
benkay: he's clearly not dressing for anyone
benkay: and he's also clearly trashy
benkay: ofc my definition of such is going to differ from someone else's
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight i have nfi who this is. pics ?
benkay: but i'll not be told to not speak my opinion of stuff.
mircea_popescu: and in any case, i'm not offended.
mircea_popescu: <benkay> excessive rouge, lipstick, heels, etc. it's a good look on the right chick. << for sufficiently drunk guys :D
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, I linked near the quoted line, anyway seems you're too distracted to follow the conversation or reply overall, while others are debating about such women
kuzetsa: I personally don't feel "trash" or "trashy" is a good way to refer to persons --- trash is refuse, waste, compost, scrap, things to be recycled, or a computer metaphor for marking something as "trash" to be staged for deletion (such as putting one's unwanted spam emails in the trash)
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa so how does the logical jump work, from that to "not a good way to refer" ?

cazalla: kuzetsa, it's the right word because i'd fuck her and then throw her away, trash, not the sort of woman i'd bring home to meet my parents

benkay: kuzetsa: ever met a girl who gets off on being degraded?
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight just some random chick, i don't see anything special about her. why's she discussed in terms of hotness or wtf.
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa of course it is. so ?
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: ...(oops, erroneously inserted a linebreak) "trash", or "trashy" is degrading to their personhood
mircea_popescu: no, it's not. it merely claims to be. which, like all claims...
mircea_popescu: saying someone's a scammer is similarly degrading to their personhood. that's no reason not to say it.
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: to say that a person is trash is to liken that person to being a disposable, unwanted, low-value thing, not a person
mircea_popescu: yup.
mircea_popescu: the only criterion is whether she actually is trashy, not whether her being trashy'd ruin whatever for her.
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, others find her special and hot, especially being nerdy gamer; I usually don't get why Megan Fox has many fans, but that's me
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight well megan fox got teh tits on a thin frame.
mircea_popescu: and also she acts well :D
mircea_popescu: !up sexy_saffron
sexy_saffron: hello!
kuzetsa: hello
mircea_popescu: hey there. we're in the middle of a trashy argument!
benkay: !up fats_cd03
fluffypony: who's seen Jodorowsky's Dune?
benkay: this argument is trash.
sexy_saffron: oh?
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight anyway, the "idiocy" comment was re the patreon thing. the whole thing fundamentally doesn't work.
mircea_popescu: people would really like it to work nevertheless, so every few years there's a new implementation
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, for me she's just a tunned up bitch, just seen some of her roles earlier and she was playing the bitch role actually
mircea_popescu: which also fails to work.
mircea_popescu: fluffypony i think i did
benkay: (my dog just sneezed in his sleep and narrowly avoided rolling off the couch)
benkay: (hilarity)
fluffypony: just started, will report back afterwards
mircea_popescu: but anyway, i'm not a blogger myself. i just happen to keep a blog.
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, thought you meant my argument because you didn't said much, I agree about patreon not working unless you're popular, it's a wanna be kickstarter basically, but lacks a few important things
kuzetsa: sexy_saffron: yeah, "trash" conversation, in which my main objection is to degrading / defamatory / judgemental language being pointed at people due to clothing, hairstyle, personality, makeup, or whatever criterea is being used to target them in a dismissive manner :(
sexy_saffron: ok
kuzetsa: I wasn't intending to have the conversation publicly, but the other party whom I was trying to ask what they meant decided the privmsg contents should be copied onto a pastebin and shared with the whole channel
mircea_popescu: people should be targeted in a dismissive manner. builds character.
sexy_saffron: I agree
sexy_saffron: honesty is cruel sometimes
cazalla: kuzetsa, no reason for that conversation to occur in PM to begin with
kuzetsa: there's a difference between constructive criticism, charcter building, harassment, bullying, and joking around
sexy_saffron: definitely
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa ilustrate ?
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: illustrate what?
mircea_popescu: seems to me one man's constructive criticism is another man's harassment and bullying.
DreadKnight: !up HeySteve
mircea_popescu: afaik bingoboingo's got a trial coming up on this very point
DreadKnight: HeySteve, it worked :D
fats_cd03: whats the point of pretending like we respect each other?
HeySteve: gribble is full of shit tonight
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa that difference. but make it absolute.
HeySteve: thx DreadKnight
fats_cd03: its not the case IRL.
sexy_saffron: there's a fine line between derision and harsh constructive criticism
kuzetsa: wow I really can't follow this channel right now
HeySteve: <+fluffypony> who's seen Jodorowsky's Dune? <- yeah that's a very interesting film. guy's a real character
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, so you poked that zoso guy on purpose to get in the spot light? marketing strategy?
kuzetsa: this topic is apparently one which a lot of people are wanting to comment on
fats_cd03: is there some kind of internet etiquette insisting on politeness? i didnt check that box on install.
mircea_popescu: sexy_saffron yeah but if it's not objectively drawn then might as well give up. people wil just claim hurtbutts to get out of things they don't want to hear.
sexy_saffron: I haven't seen that but I like the dune adaptations
sexy_saffron: oh ya, most people can't handle the truth
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight i step on the heads of idiots. it's what i do. the only selection criteria is how lulzy they are and if im bored.
kuzetsa: FWIW, the privmsg was in-part because the channel was kinda intense and I was having trouble filtering through this many words per minute
HeySteve: kuzetsa, if you dress / act a certain way, you'll inevitably draw a reaction from others
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa it gets nuts doesn't it. and it has the harshest voice model of any chan on freenode, too.
mircea_popescu: no idea what we'll end up doing, because it won't let go im sure.
kuzetsa: HeySteve: the "had it coming" defense about agressing on somebody verbally or otherwise, to their face or otherwise isn't one I consider to be valid
mircea_popescu: on the grounds of what ?
sexy_saffron: I think the best philosophy is to just stay true to yourself and not care what other people think, as cliche as that sounds
HeySteve: kuzetsa, learning to evoke a positive reaction with your appearance / manner is just social intelligence
mircea_popescu: sexy_saffron got it.
kuzetsa: HeySteve: I'm a social idiot, quite arguably
mircea_popescu: are you also a girl ?
fluffypony: hah hah - HeySteve right at the beginning, and it's already classic - I wanted to do a movie that would give the people that took LSD at that time the hallucinations that you get with that drug, but without hallucinating. I did not want LSD to be taken, I wanted to fabricate the drug's effect."
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, he had a few arguments against you that could stand valid, but overall it felt like he was trying to protect his "#1 blogger by traffic" crown by trying to dis the new competition
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: old enough to be a grandmother, so no, not a girl
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight so good for him.
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa so good for you.
HeySteve: lol yeah fluffypony, one artist apparently got tripped out just talking to Jodo, you'll see
mircea_popescu: giving new meaning to "being chtulhu"
kuzetsa: oooh, I like chtulhu (somewhat)
mircea_popescu: what if there existed a chick that'd get one high by having sex, provided it's bareback.
mircea_popescu: possibly varying effects by the hole, too.
HeySteve: mircea_popescu, I think that poison ivy in batman might fit the bill
mircea_popescu: this should totally be a goddess. and yet... my memory fails me. is there such a goddess ?
DreadKnight: HeySteve, ha, I kept telling people that, especially as advice to avoid online insults or even rape, but a lot of people insist in "I can dress the way I want, nobody should care; the raper is always the guilty one!", so I'm like "ok, good luck with that mentality"
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight there's a difference between rappers and rapists.

mircea_popescu: sorry but it was just too good to pass on :D
DreadKnight: kuzetsa, ha, knowing you're female makes the whole "faggot" thing funnier :D
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, yeah, thanks, typo
mircea_popescu: yea srsly. cazalla there you go, pming old ladies to call them faggots. wtf's wrong with you lmao
DreadKnight: HeySteve, s/raper/rapist xD
kuzetsa: O_O
cazalla: there's no women on the internet
sexy_saffron: ?
mircea_popescu: you know that's a very homoerotic belief.
kuzetsa blushes
mircea_popescu: cazalla ever tried it with a dude ?
kuzetsa: wow, now I'm having yaoi-type thoughts about a few people
cazalla: mircea_popescu, no but someone did want to in high school
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa is that when underage boys rub foreskins or what was it ?
mircea_popescu: my azn cartoons variety speak is shit.
mircea_popescu: cazalla so why not try it out sometime then.
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: no, I think the genital VS genitals rubbing thing with penises (foreskins or otherwise) is called a frottage
mircea_popescu: ;;ud yaoi
gribble: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Yaoi | Yaoi is a slang meaning 'boys love' or homosexuality that is used in the japanese language. Popular with fangirls who like their favorite anime guy...
HeySteve: kuzetsa not a sword fight?
cazalla: i don't understand why it is homoerotic though, my understanding it's meaning is that a woman does not have the power to influence online as she does irl
mircea_popescu: ah ok.
mircea_popescu: cazalla now that's nonsense.
kuzetsa: wow, that urban dictionary thing is pretty accurate
mircea_popescu: now lessee if i can get caught up on this monsterlog jeez/
kuzetsa: I've totally done the fangirl thing thinking of male characters romantically / physically involved with each other <I'll spare you the fanfic I may or may not have read or written>
sexy_saffron: I don't think gender has much to do with influence on the internet
sexy_saffron: on the internet, no one knows you're a dog
benkay: but here, we all sort of know each other fairly well.
cazalla: sexy_saffron, clearly you've never had a woman join your guild, demand officer status, demand items while using cybering to attain that from idiots who allowed her to destroy said guild with drama
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa hey, what do you do for a living ?
kuzetsa: good job, urban dictionary, that's totally what I meant by yaoi :)
DreadKnight: sexy_saffron, talk was mainly started by chicks popular on youtube mainly thanks to cleavage
sexy_saffron: ah, well there is that lol
mircea_popescu: cazalla no, actually, i had that lol. didn't really do much.
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: retired, technically
sexy_saffron: idk, I just think people can be shitty regardless of gender
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa im looking for someone to cover the countless anime forums on the web, if you're looking for work.
cazalla: mircea_popescu, happened to me in EQ, guild leader's wife joins, she start cybering the teenage boys which undermines his authority, it all went to shit after that
mircea_popescu: sexy_saffron women can't be as shitty as men because they're inferior and all.
sexy_saffron: lol
mircea_popescu: cazalla so she's a great troll. why hate the playa ?
kuzetsa: sexy_saffron: yeah, people being unpleasant (shitty, whatever) doesn't have a strong correlation to any particular gender, race, religion, age, nationality, etc.
mircea_popescu: if i were a wife upset over matrimonial neglect i'd do the exact same thing.
mircea_popescu: only perhaps better.
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa age ? what, you kidding me ?
mircea_popescu: annyoing teenaged boys are a category.
kuzetsa: no, I'm not kidding about being retired
cazalla: kuzetsa, retired or on disability due to feminist issues such as gender dysmorphia, anxiety or other made up shit?
mircea_popescu: i meant the correlation with age. of course it correlates with gender and age, god help you with 16yo boyz.
mircea_popescu: lol this guy's got a scoring table all prepared.
kuzetsa: I still do a bit of consulting / contract work now and then though, as well as some speculation with bitcoin and such
fats_cd03: 'and such' being?
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight: anyway, 1600$+ a month just because; for writing; that's like 3 romanian full time jobs; I got 0 on there so far <<< you know 20k a year is basically unemployment benefits. it doesn't really register as a fortune on anyone's radar. people like asciilifeform make many times that and essentially count themselves as paupers.
kuzetsa: fats_cd03: generally, this time, specifically, I probably meant the sorts of things which are often used as a basis for stereotypes or discrimination
kuzetsa: I could have instead said "or whatever" but "and such" seemed like a fun word choice this time
kuzetsa loads that substitition into the spintex content generation engine
fats_cd03: so you're saying you buy and hold bitcoin, and thats it

benkay: those 2012 ratings
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, she might be in USA, so it's not too much there indeed
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight i think you're approaching this from the wrong angle.
mircea_popescu: living wages are living wages no matter how you turn it.
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: yes, I've been editing wikipedia for nearly a decade.
mircea_popescu: how can you stand it ?
kuzetsa: in small doses, mostly
mircea_popescu: i can see that.
kuzetsa: oh, you looking at my main WP page under the kuzetsa handle?
mircea_popescu: you stil playing eve ?
mircea_popescu: no.
kuzetsa: eve? no, not for a few months
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, living wages depend on geographical location overall and they vary a lot though
mircea_popescu: there's a large-ish bitcoin guild, smickles' in charge these days.
kuzetsa: no eve lately ever since that incident with me being a social idiot and I pissed off a pirate corp who all put large bounties on me
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight notrly.
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa how's being a social idiot manifest ?
mircea_popescu: sexy_saffron so how goes these days ?
sexy_saffron: days go well!
sexy_saffron: lots of shooting
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, if you're referring they're relative proportion to regular job, that's kinda "notrly" indeed, but when you consider internet crowd funding, that's a different story
mircea_popescu: notrly. :)
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight: cazalla, considered doing something like that with a chick I know that looks like the Dark Queen from Battletoads; got equipment and such << she doing nudes ?
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: mostly, in my case, when I say "social idiot" I just mean I've had a low success rate for knowing what sort expecations are "standard" within cultures, groups, circles, etc. (whatever you call it -- social situations)
DreadKnight: 100$ in USA is not equal to 100$ in Thaiwan

DreadKnight: in USA you can eat a day, in Thaiwian you can eat a week from 100$; just an example

mircea_popescu: i eat once, everywhere. here, romania, new york

mircea_popescu: a hundred buck's a decent meal.
kuzetsa: DreadKnight: that spelling is confusing me... did you mean thailand or taiwan?
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, you, but there was also internet crowd funding involved in the equation when raising money
DreadKnight: kuzetsa, thailand
HeySteve: oh man that reminds me, there was a girl who wanted to do the tits for bits thing
kuzetsa: just don't wear the bitcoin logo on stuff, they might confuse it for baht, the local thai currency :)
HeySteve: if it's still going I should let her know
DreadKnight: so if you're in thailand and raise 100$ online, that's way better compared to living in USA and raising 100$ online from crowd funding
mircea_popescu: HeySteve it is.
DreadKnight: HeySteve, bumped into a website where chicks get naked for btc a while ago
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight $100 is not worth the hassle anyway. no matter where you live.
HeySteve: cool where do I see the current entrants, mircea_popescu?
HeySteve: DreadKnight, girls gone bitcoin maybe?
mircea_popescu: HeySteve you mean the people who already got paid ? scroll down on the article.
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, it was just an example
DreadKnight: HeySteve, might be
mircea_popescu: i dun think it was. i think it's representative. you're thinking in teh wrong terms.

sexy_saffron: I really like how my picture turned out :)
kuzetsa: O_O
cazalla: mircea_popescu, looks or personality or both? i bet she's a dead fish in bed

mircea_popescu: cazalla she looks meh and her personality is obnoxious. she speaks like she's chewing nibblets and her movements are atrocious. needs actor schooling.
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, agree, she's average, not worst choice but not best choice
cazalla: mircea_popescu, they all look the same to me
mircea_popescu: that's because you're a racist homoerotic aussie.
cazalla: azns, that is

HeySteve: gribble says my OTP is incorrect but it works with altgribble. dunno what's up

mircea_popescu: benkay it also doesn't pay if the "companies" use a myspace page to "list"
fluffypony: HeySteve: are you seeing the same error as the20year was?
kuzetsa: benkay: 'cause I know well enough to know that a lot of yaoi hentai manga comics and anime are actually degrading to the idea of gay male-bodied persons being in stable, healthy relationships, and I'm a bit ashamed of my objectification-type thinking of of strangers in a pervy way which they might take offense to if they knew I was thinking that about them
HeySteve: yes fluffypony, exactly
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa you care too much. people are here for you to objectify. have fun.
fluffypony: HeySteve: ping nanotube about it, you're not the first person
HeySteve: male-bodied persons? you mean men?
mircea_popescu: fluffypony likely they were using a stale otp
HeySteve: will do, fluffypony
mircea_popescu: ie, not ;;eauth first
HeySteve: mircea_popescu, I used ;;eauth as usual
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: I walked through what the20year was doing, his auth flow seemed correct
kuzetsa: oh, is gribble having trouble with eauth / bcauth?
mircea_popescu: HeySteve she doesn't say men because saying men would imply they have to be fucking men, and she doesn't want to nudge a bunch of pussies towards maturity.
mircea_popescu: fluffypony weird.
HeySteve: mircea_popescu and kuzetsa, I don't like seeing awkward language to serve political purposes, it's too 1984
mircea_popescu: good for a laugh./

mircea_popescu: if only all the subbie men looking for dommes knew this.
kuzetsa: HeySteve: I prefer to err on the side of sterile and verbose where being "less wordy" might result in ambiguity or leave room for interpretation
mircea_popescu: why ?
mircea_popescu: terseness is a verbosity all of its own.
kuzetsa: perhaps, though I've found that the formal terms for some of the ideas I often wish to express, are best done so in complete, gramatically correct sentences
jurov: "male-bodied persons" left me with quite a room for interpretation xD
HeySteve: I agree, meaning is like the sculpture within the marble, you have to chip away all the extraneous stuff
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa ironically, that notion got expressed in broken english.
kuzetsa: jurov: some people don't self-identify as "men" despite having the legal (and presumably, medical) status of a male person... I've had a lot of friends who don't have a strong sense of gender in their self-identification.
mircea_popescu: and you don't perceive this as a character flaw ?

benkay: what a dainty little lock
mircea_popescu: benkay was merely a reference to yesterday's quantity / quality thing.
jurov: kuzetsa so you ask everyone about their self-identification first? what if they claim not to be persons at all?
jurov: you call them "human-shaped entity"?
benkay: my least favorite part of american english is the part where nouns aren't gendered.
mircea_popescu: who the fuck cares how people self idnetify ? all sorts of idiots self-identify as ceos of bitcoin entreprises, bitcoin investors, parts of the bitcoin community and so on and so forth ad nauseam. nobody worth two bits credits any of that self-identification crap.
mircea_popescu: benkay you should try russian. takes five days to figure out the genders of everything what goes in a entence.
kuzetsa: jurov: I've met people who self-identify some form of otherkin, and they legally still count as persons, despite a non-human self-identification... they also often accept the term "person" as being equally valid for non-human persons :P
benkay: mircea_popescu: gotta get my spanish more well-dialed first.
kuzetsa: jurov: I don't understand your point, though suspect you might be attempting a straw-man arguemnt or somesuch, or perhaps poking fun at my use of the word "person"

DreadKnight: this channel so logged and censored >_< feels a bit like a concert where everybody has phone up to film

mircea_popescu: DreadKnight how is it censored ?
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: interesting, I guess you find BDSM to be "not unpleasant" based on the past 2 datapoints
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, by removing stuff from log
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight that hasn't happened yet has it ?
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, guess not...
DreadKnight: so nvm

kuzetsa: that's not the same thing as being non-consensually defamed by a stranger
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa http://trilema.com/2010/nsfw-mosu-cu-joarda/ there you go

benkay: o we do consensual defamation these days?
benkay: implying defamation is also rape now?
mircea_popescu: speech requires no consent.
mircea_popescu: well, sex either, but that's a different story.
benkay: omg rape is a subcategory of sex!
benkay: heretic!
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: I didn't know for sure, so I tossed the partial phrase: [unu’ care se pricepe la absolut tot] into google translate -- romanian?
mircea_popescu: no irs not. it's a kind of assault.
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa "one that knows everything". it's ironic, as in, he THIN?KS he does.
mircea_popescu: romanian does a lot of subtext like that.
benkay: btw y'all, don't be using bit-c
mircea_popescu: bit-c ?
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: oooh, so is it an idiomatic non-literal phrase similar to in english, calling someone a "know-it-all" ?
mircea_popescu: similar.
kuzetsa nods

mircea_popescu: kuzetsa prolly.
kuzetsa: makes sense, neat.
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa anyway, the gist of it is that some random ro blogger got caught stealing a pic off a chan and presenting it as himself assfucking the girl in question.
mircea_popescu: his response was that "all blogers steal"
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, roger; was confused at first to see "Credits: 4" on your website, as I was thinking of the "cast" thingy like in movies; but yeah, you seem to write quite a bit about everything, so I see that working more and more with time as people get more familiar with technologies and digital currencies and become less scrubs hopefully
mircea_popescu: my response is this article, saying yeah, check it out, he's right. lucky me, i just stole some pictures off google which just happen to depict my own slaves. yay.

asciilifeform went to exercise and, as usual, missed all the goodstuff
benkay: i've never quite grokked what goes through the tied-up human's head when they're so tied for hours
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform see, exercising is bad for you
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: actually, aren't they derping about various russian citizens sanctions and whatnot << so far, the only effect is to make u.s. small arms collectors pay double for kalash
mircea_popescu: benkay so try it.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: my memory fails me. is there such a goddess ? >> ishtar.
mircea_popescu: nah
mircea_popescu: !up HeySteve
mircea_popescu: !up dbit
benkay: mircea_popescu: who'll do the tying tho
mircea_popescu: benkay you had a wife no ?
HeySteve: thx mircea_popescu, I left a note for nanotube on that issue.
benkay: past tense lol
benkay: hm, i suppose.
mircea_popescu: what, are you having her right now "?!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ...count themselves as paupers << yep
benkay: always figured there was something to the person and the theatre of it, but perhaps a more utilitarian approach is called for
benkay: you joker!
mircea_popescu: there's no theatre in slavery or in security.
mircea_popescu: where theatre begins either has long ended.
benkay: can slavery be turned on and off?
mircea_popescu: once.
benkay: yeah.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it isn't about the money, but the chain. long chain or short chain, no matter. but, if the 20k came from a mythical machine that disgorges dough, that'd be a different matter. in my book, that's a 'fortune' - because no chain.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform kinda what i was trying to get across to the guy, from another angle.
mircea_popescu: same with the kid on my blog asking me why i'm not the one doing the romanian btc atm. well... because they won't do it on my terms and i'm not doing it on theirs. obviously.
asciilifeform: this is why, e.g. spammers, break their necks trying to score the 20k machine.
asciilifeform: they dream of escape.
mircea_popescu: at least ideally, sure.

mircea_popescu: "Woe to him whom Ishtar had honoured! The fickle goddess treated her passing lovers cruelly, and the unhappy wretches usually paid dearly for the favours heaped on them. Animals, enslaved by love, lost their native vigour: they fell into traps laid by men or were domesticated by them. 'Thou has loved the lion, mighty in strength', says the hero Gilgamesh to Ishtar, 'and thou hast dug for him seven and seven pits! Thou
mircea_popescu: hast loved the steed, proud in battle, and destined him for the halter, the goad and the whip.'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what part of that reads like "fuck me in the ass, get lsd, fuck me down the throat, get pot"
asciilifeform: lol
asciilifeform: nobody declined the chance to fuck ishtar though.
mircea_popescu: now how would you know that.
asciilifeform: well, legend.
mircea_popescu: it doth not say that does it ?
mircea_popescu is not exactly a middle east specialist.

fluffypony: holy fuck HR Giger is creepy in this documentary
fluffypony: he's like a creepy uncle that wants to watch you change
mircea_popescu: lmao wut
mircea_popescu is really curious if benkay took the implicit "so have her lock you up" as intended or simply read the neutral statemen the other way :D
benkay: hm? what's the other interpretation?
mircea_popescu: you locking her up
benkay: yeah no, can't imagine that answering my questions.
mircea_popescu: prolly not. make for decent dinner conversation for a while tho
benkay: myeah. plus, fun for all parties involved.
HeySteve: fluffypony for sure! was sad to hear of his death, really enjoy his art
benkay: on an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT TOPIC, mircea_popescu what sorts of events will trigger F.DERP divs?
