mircea_popescu: <benkay> fund'll probably be around for a few years, eh? << yes.
mircea_popescu: <jurov> so if, say, bitpay suddenly croaks, F.DERP NAV will increase by 240 BTC? << yes.
mircea_popescu: <benkay> kakobrekla, mike_c, jurov, mircea_popescu: i think this is an open question. does F.DERP NAV include coverage? << yes. let's model this thing :
mircea_popescu: F gets 100 btc in cash, issues 50 btc worth of f.a shares and 50 btc worth of f.b shares. 10 btc of each sells.
mircea_popescu: f now has 120 in cash.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 4 @ 0.17 = 0.68 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: 100 of which is equity of shareholders, 20 is provisions.
mircea_popescu: f.a croaks. f.b now has the same 120 in cash, but equity moves : 110 shareholders, 10 provisions. leaving a nav gain of 10.
mircea_popescu: f.b lists, the f section thereof being worth 30 btc.
mircea_popescu: f now has 90 in cash, and nav dropped 20 from last, and 10 lifetime.
mircea_popescu: make sense ?
jurov: you mean d.a and d.b ?
mircea_popescu: as the case may be, yes.
mircea_popescu: now, this is not mandatory, in the sense that an investor can evaluate the nav through absolutely any methodology that investor likes.
jurov: won't there be f.mpif-style marketmaker for f.derp?
mircea_popescu: nope.

jurov: wouldn't be better to pay out part of it right after d.* event?
kuzetsa: cazalla: which one is that on? gurochan? or is it 4chan and I just don't pay close enough attention?

DreadKnight: kuzetsa, are you into that sort of science as well? :D
kuzetsa: DreadKnight: ah, fair enough -- I thought sapiosexual was an ok word for my own preferences until I realized the extra fancy term: "panromantic demisexual" was a much more accurate thing in my case (as far as labels go)
kuzetsa: DreadKnight: which science?
DreadKnight: means attracted by intelligence basically
DreadKnight: kuzetsa, I was quoting you :D
benkay: so uh for the retards in the room what precisely are your inclinations, kuzetsa ?
benkay: panromantic demisexual
kuzetsa: benkay: uhhh
benkay: demi - not really into sex?
kuzetsa: oh
benkay: panromantic - lover of all?
kuzetsa: as far as romantic relationships are concerned, physicallity is something I neither object to nor expect
DreadKnight: nice
kuzetsa: or is it spelled physicality?
DreadKnight: I get the idea, also googled a bit
kuzetsa: benkay: yeah, all -- in the sense of there not being any particular body type or sexual or gender identity I find to be a dealbreaker
kuzetsa: "it's all good"
DreadKnight: would be great if less people were all about sex; maybe would see less stupid people with lots of kids as well
DreadKnight: frigging humanity is a cancer
cazalla: DreadKnight, you can always neck yourself
kuzetsa: DreadKnight: cancer eh?
benkay: kuzetsa: typically people focus more on the kinds of folks they want around rather than the kinds of folks they find objectionable
kuzetsa: DreadKnight: isn't the cancer astrological sign the one that looks like a 69?
DreadKnight: cazalla, so far I don't have kids, so that basically lowers population by itself if doing the math
cazalla: DreadKnight, but if you're so smart, surely makes sense to have kids then
benkay: cazalla: that raises an interesting question. why'd you choose to have kids?
cazalla: benkay, because i thought i was going to die
cazalla: i still am, perhaps just not as soon
DreadKnight: cazalla, maybe eventually, but it's not a must, need other things first
benkay: what was the timeframe when you made the call?
cazalla: benkay, as it turns out, i had pretty bad sinus infection
DreadKnight: cazalla, anyway, plenty of kids made and abandoned, it would be smarter to adopt one then make a new one just because imo
benkay: instead of what, cancer?
benkay: DreadKnight: gotta start from a known-good state.
cazalla: yeah plus list of other shit i googled, doctor didn't really help much
cazalla: benkay, obviously wasn't the sole reason but thinking i was going to die sooner than later, seemed like a good idea to have a kid
DreadKnight: xD
benkay: DreadKnight: this is the kind of advice that ruins people's lives: "go adopt a rescue animal for your first dog! you'll have no idea what it's suffered through or how trainable it is! think of the poor dogs!"
benkay: mnope nope nope nope nope
benkay: if you've never trained a dog, set both of yourselves up for success.
cazalla: DreadKnight, why would you adopt a kid, spend money on it when it's not even yours?
benkay: 'cause you're a hairshirt ecofreak.
cazalla: a million other kids can starve for all i care
DreadKnight: benkay, personally I think pets will pretty much disappear in favor of robots soon, but that's just me; anyway, jumping from humans to pets is quite a leap
benkay: wat
benkay: son you're crazy
DreadKnight: cazalla, we're all the same matter and it's not like I don't have physical weaknesses, same applies for my potential mate
benkay: do you have a pet, children, or any sort of long term human companion, DreadKnight ?
cazalla: DreadKnight, why not just have a friend come over and fuck your wife and raise that baby? i don't see the difference in that and adopting tbh
DreadKnight: benkay, said before I don't have children; had a few pets when I was younger; avoiding human companion atm
benkay: k you're disqualified from opining on relationships until you address all the above
DreadKnight: cazalla, adopting is when you take something already made that most likely has a shitty future; friend coming to fuck your wise is still making something brand new ;)
DreadKnight: benkay, your disqualification is invalid to me
DreadKnight: it's not like everybody needs to make a kid
DreadKnight: just to spread along some genes
cazalla: doesn't the urge to fuck come from that though
DreadKnight: I said I'm sapiosexual
DreadKnight: I'm not all about sex
cazalla: people who say that probably have small dicks
benkay: lol meaning you disqualify yourself from finding mates because they're stupid so you don't actually have to try to get laid
DreadKnight: cazalla, I'm doing really well in that field actually
DreadKnight: benkay, I'm not disqualifying myself, I like artsy chicks usually and single ones are pretty rare around
cazalla: why are you attracted to smart women DreadKnight? my wife is dumb as rock and that's how i like it
DreadKnight: haha
DreadKnight: why were you attracted to your wife? good looks? character/charisma? supportive?
benkay: cazalla needs to feel superior
DreadKnight: seems so
cazalla: not i'm just being honest
cazalla: no*
cazalla: DreadKnight, because she's loving, friendly, well natured, modest, prefers to do her craftwork, lampworking etc in her spare time instead of going out getting drunk
cazalla: plus that big ass
mircea_popescu: <DreadKnight> they seem to have knee protection, so probably walked in 4 limbs for quite a bit << yeah bursitis is no fun
DreadKnight: I'm attracted to smart women because they feel less like robots/animals, in the sense they're not all about sex / shopping / make-up; and if they even have an artistic side, like drawing, then even better :3
mircea_popescu: <benkay> panromantic demisexual << spending a lot of time daydreaming ?
mircea_popescu: <kuzetsa> "it's all good" << traditionally this isn't called anything but "desperate" you know.
DreadKnight: cazalla, sounds pretty nice overall; I prefer tities a bit more though
mircea_popescu: <cazalla> benkay, because i thought i was going to die << so what, something like "eh fuck the world, im dieing anyway" ?
cazalla: DreadKnight, well you should see these ones, full of milk, doubled in size :)
DreadKnight: cazalla, the thing is that around here in this city, there's a really nasty stereotype of girls, "pitzipoanca", basically a club barbie doll that's so not my type
cazalla: mircea_popescu, well yeah, if i'm honest that was part of it
mircea_popescu: <benkay> son you're crazy <<< wasn't that mocsny fellow derping the same derpage in the 90s ? o, soon sex robots!!1
DreadKnight: cazalla, pitzipoanca is usually smoking, has a lot of dresses, make-up, talks all the time on expensive latest iphone, goes clubbing all the time, listens only to music like house or manele (gypsy crap)
cazalla: DreadKnight, i don't like that either
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight the valley girl is not as romanian as you think.
nanotube: fluffypony: the20year's problem was his browser was caching the old encrypted otp. heysteve's is probably same?
mircea_popescu: nanotube likely yes.
DreadKnight: cazalla, my mayor is a drug addict with classical cars and there are a ton of "posh" clubs around, so I'm not quite in the place I should probably be
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, yeah, noticed the pattern in other areas as well
mircea_popescu: benkay: DreadKnight: gotta start from a known-good state. << a well chosen known-bad state works even better.
benkay: if you're just learning how to do the thing?
mircea_popescu: a, no.
mircea_popescu: tbh, you shouldn't be learning by doing. but hey.
mircea_popescu: cazalla: people who say that probably have small dicks << zing, srsly.
mircea_popescu: artsy chicks are hard to get by now ?! what world is this!
benkay: mircea_popescu: seems that training slaves is one of those things you can only learn by doing
mircea_popescu: try and find some twentysomething that ISNT belabouring under the delusion that she can "create" art.
DreadKnight: quite a bit of people seen me naked and they said I'm doing really good length wise; and I was really cold at that time (shrinkage)
benkay: <mircea_popescu> try and find some twentysomething that ISNT belabouring under the delusion that she can "create" art. // srsly
cazalla: DreadKnight, exception that proves the rule perhaps
benkay: <DreadKnight> quite a bit of people seen me naked and they said I'm doing really good length wise; and I was really cold at that time (shrinkage)
benkay: // but nothing to compare on your own?
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, compared to other types, artsy chicks are fewer, so more difficulty in getting one
benkay: DreadKnight: that's a geography problem
cazalla: DreadKnight, you see artsy as smart, i see it as dumb, we probably like the same women
DreadKnight: so a girl who makes 3d characters is dumb, while one that only smokes and drinks is better? xD
benkay: til that dumb has nothing to do with intelligence in aus
cazalla: DreadKnight, i'm sure i read something before that people who drink excessively are often smart

benkay: poopsock?
benkay: tittybong?
mircea_popescu: o hey!
mircea_popescu decides to be MP, Supreme Bitcoin Kyriarch henceforth.
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: this is more better than... whatever the fuck that particult urban dictioary gibberish was (and unlike urban dictionary, has actual citations) ---> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyriarchy
assbot: Kyriarchy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
asciilifeform owns 'kyristor.com'
cazalla: benkay you've never had a poopsock? clearly you've never played an mmorpg then
benkay: i did eve for a while
asciilifeform: (think 'resistor' or 'capacitor')
mircea_popescu: well not to that degree.
benkay: but no, that sort of shit's far less entertaining than...anything else.
mircea_popescu: "Kyriarchy ("rule by a lord") is a social system or set of connecting social systems built around domination, oppression, and submission. " << yeah. basically, they now have a word to describe how the world both is and is supposed to be.
kuzetsa narrows eyes
mircea_popescu: well done femiderps :D
kuzetsa: libertarians piss me the fuck off too, actually -_-
benkay: they've come full circle to making sense i guess
kuzetsa: well they do and they don't
mircea_popescu: whai ? they just protest teh kyriarchy
kuzetsa: right libertarianism, specifically
asciilifeform: just wait till we plug the kyristors in.
kuzetsa: ... considering that left libertarianism isn't particularly incompatible with democratic socialism
mircea_popescu: "democratic socialism" is incompatible with reality.
DreadKnight: that imgur is what I had in mind as well overall
cazalla: or a really subtle troll
DreadKnight: :D
mircea_popescu: "FuckU-FuckMe is the most powerful, pleasurable, inexpensive, and only dual-party Internet remote intercourse tool on the market today." << this should be on an ipo
mircea_popescu: anyone here care to recycle that website into a tardstalk ipo ?
asciilifeform: lol!
cazalla: i guess the best trolls are the ones that you're not sure of
DreadKnight: agree
DreadKnight: it's a form or art :D
DreadKnight: of*
mircea_popescu: anyway, does kuzetsa get the crown for the first libertard to have tried b-a or does truffles actually get that one ?
kuzetsa: what's a b-a?
mircea_popescu: this place.
kuzetsa: oh
kuzetsa: ok, then what's a libertard?
DreadKnight: bacon
mircea_popescu: someone who mistakenly believes that human life can have meaning outside of an opressive structure.
kuzetsa: specifically, is it a pejorative term (I assume) aimed at a particular political affiliation?
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: oh, no, I don't think humans are AT ALL MEANINGFUL IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE EVER
mircea_popescu: generally, people who identify as liberals, progressives, social-something or the other etc.
kuzetsa: the universe would still exist if humanity was wiped out
mircea_popescu: that has nothing to do.
kuzetsa: this planet is nothing special either
mircea_popescu: this isn't an ontological discussion.
DreadKnight: xD
DreadKnight: it's political
mircea_popescu: quite.
kuzetsa: huh
mircea_popescu: basically, anyone who's to the left of, being in favour of the release of serbs in medieval germany/russia could count as a libertard, depending how the conversation turns.
kuzetsa: so to clarify, are you referring to things vaguely on the side of "social left" = libertard?
DreadKnight: kuzetsa, do you think that the opinion of all people matter? (something to step in the right direction)
kuzetsa: DreadKnight: no, most people don't matter
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa and most of contemporary "right".
DreadKnight: kuzetsa, but why?
mircea_popescu: <kuzetsa> DreadKnight: no, most people don't matter << isn't that opressive ?!
kuzetsa: people don't matter, and their opinions tend to be at least twice as stupid
DreadKnight: why? :P
kuzetsa: DreadKnight: as mircea_popescu said, this isn't an ontological discussion (and then you chimed in to qualify: it's political)
DreadKnight: you were almost talking about aliens
DreadKnight: mircea brought you back to earth
kuzetsa: nah, more along the lines of the heat death of the universe (at which point, politics are no longer relevant)
mircea_popescu: of course they are.
mircea_popescu: what isn't relevant is said death.
kuzetsa: heat death of the universe resets everything to a state of entropy, including politics
asciilifeform: http://kyristor.com << dumped my ancient derpage in there for archaeologists to derp on. ☟︎
assbot: kyristor
mircea_popescu: one of the telling symptoms of the libertard is that he'll replace his person as is with some sort of ilimited derivative of god, and pretend to concern himself with "the termic death of the universe".
DreadKnight: universe will likely reset itself, all supposedly immortal beings within it's bounds will get poked as well with it
mircea_popescu: this is not a consideration open to you, the demiamorous pansexual w/e the hell.
kuzetsa shrugs
kuzetsa: aliens wouldn't be as tedious as human-type people are... socializing is hard :(
DreadKnight: do you know any aliens?
kuzetsa: (this is that "social idiot" thing I mentioned)
mircea_popescu: right, the dollies wouldn't be as hard as the classmates, if the dollies were classmates.
mircea_popescu: except, they are not.
mircea_popescu: this oppressive point of reality must be digested.
kuzetsa: DreadKnight: none, no, they just seem plausibly less tedious (though not neccessarily friendly to be around) than figuring out how people work
DreadKnight: Kushed, just because they're from a different place doesn't mean they're not affected by polarity / gravity and yin&yang as well
mircea_popescu: poor Kushed
DreadKnight: right
DreadKnight: kuzetsa, ^
kuzetsa: DreadKnight: my premise in thinking it would plausibly be less tedious isn't that they would be "better" but that it would be less "same old shit"
DreadKnight: anyway, you're kinda dodging the libertard subject thingy, so moving on I guess...
kuzetsa: I don't know what libertard means, so yeah
DreadKnight: kuzetsa, same colors in their world as well, unless they get to see more of them or maybe less
DreadKnight: or none
DreadKnight: seen a nice asian movie about humanity going blind
DreadKnight: thanks to some virus
kuzetsa: neat
mircea_popescu: i guess this one must be for cazalla http://31.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lnasqguj3m1qlne6uo1_500.jpg

cazalla: mircea_popescu, still too skinny
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, nice to see contrast like that
mircea_popescu: twist : stephen king is actually going blind, and borges too
asciilifeform: borges is dead
cazalla: i don't see the appeal in the chains plus that residue you get on your hands from shit like that would annoy me
asciilifeform: unless you're thinking of one other than jorge luis

mircea_popescu: cazalla the appeal was supposed to be the secret life of the teenager.

kuzetsa: whatever, I don't care if I'm a libertard or not -- figuring out what labels even are for is too much like work
asciilifeform: labels aren't arbitrarily tacked on - they're lived.
kuzetsa: cazalla: sorry about earlier throwing a fit about the "I'd hit it" or whatever and trashy something or other (no clue what you even said, it wasn't that bad though)
decimation: you might not be interested in politics, but politics are interested in you...
mircea_popescu: decimation lol
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa you are, yeah, but the prediction attendant would be that you'd never make it here, and yet it's not coming true.
mircea_popescu: obviously social sciences aren't real sciences.
mthreat: isn't economics a social science?
mircea_popescu: indeed.
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: mostly I'm just already jaded and given up on any sort of quota for how much offensive shit I'm going to be bothered by at any given time... it sometimes takes a bit of effort to "give up and just go with it"
decimation: until someone has developed a deterministic model of the human mind, I don't think social sciences can do any thing more than tell stories
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa another victory for the kyriarchy.
kuzetsa: lulz
kuzetsa: apparently, sure
kuzetsa: I secretly got my libertard stink all over it though
kuzetsa: not even very stealthy, I think some people noticed me doing it :/
mircea_popescu: kyriarchy does not care what you're thinking while taking its unsolicited fat cock, as long as you moan appropriately.
mircea_popescu: kinda what makes it better than oppresive regimes a la usg in the first place.

kuzetsa: offensive is appropriate though... hmm
DreadKnight: I used to have a buddy who's an informatics teacher at a highschool; when I talked in english he usually found that rather offensive and snobbish
DreadKnight: basically he didn't knew english well enough but was afraid to admit it
decimation: what's 'informatics'? computer programming?

DreadKnight: kuzetsa, we need a new plague
decimation: yeah it seems english has become the lingua franca of that kind of work
kuzetsa: DreadKnight: plague?
kuzetsa: who needs a plague... the creatures of earth? how big a plague? global pandemic? regional outbreak?
mircea_popescu: kuzetsa you have any idea how old school that is ?
mircea_popescu: exactly.
kuzetsa: I saw a game I've been meaning to try out which simulates biological attacks on the planet (earth, or some other... don't recall) or something
DreadKnight: decimation, ex-gf bugged me a lot to teach her web design / coding so that she can make a lot of money easily; she fails at english and she's not passionate or smart enough; and people around said I'm against finding a companion and rather set high standards xD
kuzetsa: mircea_popescu: how old school "that" is ... which "that" are you referring to?
DreadKnight: kuzetsa, "we need a new plague" is from "The office" show, it's basically a meme now, google it
kuzetsa: oh
kuzetsa: I've seen the office (both the UK and american variant)
DreadKnight: tried to watch UK one as well, simply stopped.
DreadKnight: don't want to see the exact same jokes by copy cat actors all over again

DreadKnight: kuzetsa, which the office you liked more?

thestringpuller: You're os'ist
DreadKnight: I'm not sure what bitcoin has to do with the OS
DreadKnight: though I'm not very fond of windows
kuzetsa: DreadKnight: I am, windows has a good reputation for being more solid for gaming than linux or mac

kuzetsa: other than that it's a very small (and constantly shrinking) list of apps which are native windows ones and happen to be part of some workflow or other
thestringpuller: "Bill Gates pushed for DirectX in the 90's now everyone writes for windows when on PC thus windows is better" argument
DreadKnight: kuzetsa, lmao; plenty of linux games, plus linux can also run windows games; that reputation is total FUD, it's based on people believing that and keeping at it

kuzetsa: thestringpuller: driver support too, not just the directx API / abstraction layer
thestringpuller: DreadKnight: it's damn near impossible to run some games on Linux that were for windows.

jurov: i thought DERPs might be attractive... but it hinges on people putting bitcoins in for indeterminate time,
jurov: while there are neither dividends nor MMing to ensure price follows NAV with some liquidity...
jurov: it will end up like S.NSA - if someone invested 100BTC he now cannot get out more than 13BTC without major loss
FabianB: s.nsa will pay dividends
jurov: eventually. and DERP won't do even that.
jurov: i can buy d.* or f.derp and then wait for months for positive or negative hype to cause someone to buy my shares at better price
jurov: which event may never come
jurov: or it will come but market won't react at all, as usual on mpex
FabianB: maybe it's more like bitbet bets (the derps)
jurov: bitbet has clear closing date
FabianB: set your bet and wait until it's resolved
jurov: and on bitbet, you can always support either side
FabianB: closing yes, but not resolution
jurov: here mp explicitly said "bids/asks availability is not guaranteed"
FabianB: isn't on bbet either, often bets with 0.1 on yes and 10 btc on no
jurov: let's compare http://bitbet.us/bet/778/bitstamp-out-of-business-in-2014/?ref=1EteoRKNYbNhhmFfsKnUSWRF3JUpKCcMnc and D.BSTP directly
assbot: BitBet - Bitstamp out of business in 2014 :: 0.07 B (21%) on Yes, 0.26 B (79%) on No | closing in 4 months 6 days | weight: 46`695 (100`000 to 1)
jurov: on bitbet, if i place 10btc on Yes and advertise the bet, there is a chance someone props up the other side
jurov: and i can always add something to No side
jurov: and the closing date is clear, it is not expected to be any delays there
jurov: with D.BSTP/F.DERP, i can buy more than 10BTC
jurov: but closing date is unknown
jurov: and if situation gets interesting, mp can pull asks, leaving me unable to add something to other side
jurov: plus, like the s.nsa example, it may be impossible to get out
FabianB: so to use derps you need to be more confident about your bet than on bitbet?
jurov: i'm just saying it's much bigger risk than bitbet
FabianB: as for s.nsa or s.bbet i agree it's a little odd that it's not traded more actively, and why ppl mostly buy at IPO and not later
jurov: imo it's easily understandable - why would anyone buy stocks with completely unclear time horizon?
punkman: jurov, but it works if you are a Bitstamp believer
jurov: and risk having bitcoins frozen on mpex?
jurov: for years?
jurov: punkman: find me some bitstamp believers who don't hate mircea
punkman: jurov, that is a problem for all the D series, indeed
jurov: well, anoher factor
thestringpuller: !up Basquiat_
FabianB: jurov: but why buy into s.nsa at IPO then, time horizon was always unknown ?
jurov: believers did
jurov: others wait till nsa ships
thestringpuller: DERPS aren't resistant to volatility.
thestringpuller: if BTC market cap grows (in terms of fiat) DERPS stay the same, and the implicity valuation rises.
FabianB: another interesting point you say is: you think everyone on mpex is trading on the same side; no-one is on the other, sinc e the other side wouldn't use mpex
jurov: i hope not, but...
pigeons: no there is a lot of truth to that
thestringpuller: hence S.DICE bubble
thestringpuller: wasn't the S.DICE buyback lower than the implicit NAV?
pigeons: it was for more than it was trading for.
pigeons: i dont know how you are determining "implicit NAV" the value was based on dividends paid from earnings from bets, which greatly fluctuated
pigeons: the bankroll was not included as an asset for purposes of the share ownership. share ownership only gave you a claim to earnings
pigeons: which sometimes were losses
punkman: even if you don't get the believers to trade, you get them to pass up 2.5x discount and maybe consider that keeping their BTC might be better than giving them to random derps.
pigeons: that you had to make up the next month
fluffypony: so maybe the DERPs would have been better suited to have been run on Havelol by an independent intermediary
pigeons: i imagine they can still run passthroughs if they choose, like they did with DICE
pigeons: so that is a counterpoint, if there was sufficent demand, someone likely would run a passthrough
pigeons: they had really fat commissions on the S.DICE passthroughs
punkman: I'd expect insiders might be keen to buy DERPs when on the verge of IPO

BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: TO have the pretense of greater civilization
asciilifeform: and if poison is supposed to be 'humane' and this is a thing - there are poisons that knock victim out in seconds
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Right, the traditional three drug cocktail is two for comfort and once those set in a metric fuckton of KCl to rapidly induce electrical heart and brain death
asciilifeform: what happened to, e.g. cyanide ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Cynide abandons the pretense of greater civilization by being explicitly a poison. This pretense only holds if it is a medical looking even. Also... cyanide is probably onjectionable to the executioner as it presents a risk to them.

asciilifeform vaguely recalls reading a short story on alt.sex.somethingorother years ago, where in 'the dark future (TM)' the condemned are injected with an alien 'fireworm' that eats them alive for weeks at a time. but everyone is told that they were killed quickly and 'humanely' - and somehow this is supposed to be a greater punishment

asciilifeform: the one common anthropological thread i see here is that most governments insist on some 'national' symbolic meaning in their chosen means of execution. e.g., the french guillotine across all five 'republics' ☟︎☟︎
asciilifeform: when usa was a techno-power, electric chair was king ☟︎
asciilifeform: banana republics, soviet world - shooting ☟︎
HeySteve: asciilifeform, did the Russians have firing squad?
HeySteve: ah right
asciilifeform: HeySteve: traditional civilian execution in russia involves a single bullet (firing squad is seen as 'military', not befitting a common criminal)
HeySteve: ok. I know they shoot people in China, not sure billing the families for the bullet is an urban legend
asciilifeform: china follows the russian tradition
HeySteve: "Stoning remains a legal form of judicial punishment in Iraq, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Northern Nigeria, Aceh in Indonesia, Brunei, and Pakistan;"
HeySteve: that's a bit rough by comparison to other methods
asciilifeform: so from this it follows that the current ceremony (injection with not-quite-poisons in an elaborate pseudo-medical setting) also symbolizes something about modern usa, re: national character. ☟︎
chetty: bring back hemlock
HeySteve: death by obamacare
asciilifeform: there are other interestingly perverse aspects of how prisoners are kept in usa prior to execution
asciilifeform: for instance, a squad of jailers watches over the condemned for weeks, months, years - to ensure that he doesn't suicide and cheat the executioner - and the court - of their spectacle

DreadKnight: HeySteve, well, no mana as there is no magic; there's plasma to protect Dark Priest (summoner) and also make units (so more / better units = less protection, it's a tradeoff); each unit has it's own energy stat, abilities require energy, there's also meditation to replenish that, but if an unit gets damaged in a round above a treshold (more than endurance stat), then the unit gets no regen it's next turn (regrowth for health and m

DreadKnight: "rich" seems to be more of a state of mind; kinda like you're saying on your blog "pay up or this could wither and die" on your blog mircea_popescu, even though that's not the case, but I like the lesson you're teaching
asciilifeform: 'Mathematicians think in symbols, physicists in objects, philosophers in concepts, geometers in images, jurists in constructs, logicians in operators, writers in impressions, and idiots in words.'
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight i was being sarcastique
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, yeah, got that :)
mircea_popescu: and physicists don't think in "objects", what an ignorant thing to say
mircea_popescu: physicists think in wavefunctions.
DreadKnight: haha
DreadKnight: energy, intensity, frequency, amplitude
asciilifeform physicists think in wavefunctions << summons zombie of hugh everett
mircea_popescu: no but srsly, "objects" ? what is this, naive physicalism cca 1880 ?
DreadKnight: most physicists actually don't believe in objects and matter, it's all energy or simply nothing
mircea_popescu: ^
DreadKnight: so matter is like frozen energy
asciilifeform: DreadKnight, mircea_popescu: the physics that yields interesting machinery, vs. 20th.c navel gazing, was done by folks who 'thought in objects' more often than not.
mircea_popescu: and i'll venture to say that pretty much all the good philosophers similarly don't think in "concepts", whatever that is, but in a sort of equivalent of the wavefununction, except it has two major irreducible statements. one's systematic the other historical.
mircea_popescu: but any philosopher worth his salt will interact not with a "concept" but with either the graph of that concept's history in the mind of man,
mircea_popescu: or else with the graph of that concept and its relations.
DreadKnight: otherwise he'll have a hard time explaining things to people
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i disagree. see the short cathode tv.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: minkowski, weyl. 'objects', pre-20th c.
mircea_popescu: the SHORT cathode. you know, the one the japs built.
asciilifeform: yes, with sr
mircea_popescu: i suspek you're just trying an underhanded approach to introduce the supremacy of engineers over theoretical physicitsts :D
mircea_popescu: so let's take the baby home : real programmers think in terms of functions and macros,
mircea_popescu: not in terms of variables and values.
asciilifeform sees 20th c. physicists as largely imposters, who 'the good parts - not original, the original parts - not good'
mircea_popescu: (i mean lisp-functions, not int blabla ()-functions)
DreadKnight: Newton's falling apple was likely just a nice story to make people visualize things :P
asciilifeform not a cultist of the engineer, but of folks like j.c. maxwell, who knew exactly how to build a radio - and didn't.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know these impostors knew exactly how to build a cern and did.
asciilifeform: e.g, herr einstein: a junkyard dog, who took credit for the genuinely interesting late 19th. c. work
asciilifeform: cern - navel gazing
mircea_popescu: hm.
mircea_popescu: you dispute it's an actual piece of machinery ?
asciilifeform: it's a machine, sure
mircea_popescu: so then ? you dispute it actually works as described ?
asciilifeform: but makes 'manned space' look useful
mircea_popescu: use is not really a consideration here.
mircea_popescu: bitcoin is, in this exact sense, useless.
asciilifeform: cern, other 'strong force' shenanigans are a good example of 'chinese' scholastiwank. the people involved - entirely uninterested in systematization of knowledge, much less practical use
asciilifeform: stamp collectors.
mircea_popescu: nobody's arguing there's a large number of would-be followers in any race, who to the acute observer look more like they're going through the motions
mircea_popescu: rather than actually doing the winning.
asciilifeform: good litmus test - anyone involved with 'strings'
DreadKnight: bitcoin is theoretically an energy allowing to polymorph sheeps into cars and so on, to facilitate exchanges and needs
mircea_popescu: obviously a large number of people who like to identify as physicists are in the situation of people who like to identify as rockstars.
asciilifeform: the string folks explicitly renounced testability of hypothesis! if that isn't an open declaration of charlatanry, what is ?
mircea_popescu: how is this related ?
asciilifeform: notice how every piece of actual 'practical' machinery we have that makes use of 'modern' physics, the physics in question is 1940s or prior ?
mircea_popescu: you ever took a rmi ?
asciilifeform: this is not, as the particle smashers tell us, an accident.
mircea_popescu: mri*
asciilifeform: nmr -> 1930s
mircea_popescu: eh get out.
asciilifeform: plus 1980s computer.
asciilifeform: seriously
asciilifeform: isodor rabi.
mircea_popescu: well if you go at it that way then everything's ancient greek atomism.
mircea_popescu: for that matter, 1940s is 20th century anyway, and sure, engineers take 50 years or so to apply fundamental physics
asciilifeform: nope. the latter - navel gazing. no testability given their tech.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, 1940 is not pre-qm.
DreadKnight: theoretical physics might seem to have no application atm, but that's the whole point, debating and eventually (hopefully) allowing to grasp more complex concepts and allow for further technological improvements, like being able to go through worm holes and such
midnightmagic: the physics is not 1940s or prior. i have a friend whose PhD was literally pushing the boundaries of particle physics using results obtained from LHC
mircea_popescu: midnightmagic im kinda saving (radio)astronomy here in a compartment, for later.
midnightmagic: the physics is new, even if it's a negative result
asciilifeform: DreadKnight, midnightmagic: not insisting that the particle hijinx have no possible applications, in a far future. just that these applications will require a resurrection of the caliber of men we had 1800-1900.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so you mean einstein ?
midnightmagic: "no new more fundamental particles as of X TeV in the LHC"
mircea_popescu: or who exactly, fermi ? pauli ? the germanz ?
DreadKnight: asciilifeform, things are getting more and more complex now, it takes more work and time
DreadKnight: einstein might have been fake, his wife might have been the smart one
asciilifeform: faraday, maxwell, lorentz, etc
mircea_popescu: you're such an old west fetishist :D
DreadKnight: asciilifeform, just like bitcoin mining is increasing in difficulty
midnightmagic: IMO, in a brand-new field, those singular talents can exist. Once the primary breakthroughs are finished, it requires teams and long-term hard work to push it forward. IMHO anyway. me != physicist.
asciilifeform: DreadKnight: things are getting more and more complex now, it takes more work and time << the motto of the 20th c. intellectual impostor class, in a nutshell.
DreadKnight: midnightmagic, exactly
asciilifeform: 'complexity is irreducible now, the only possible kind of man is now the stamp collector'
asciilifeform: 'encyclopaedists can no longer exist'
mircea_popescu: i'm one, what.
midnightmagic: not to say I disagree with anything you guys are saying fundamentally of course
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: so you know it's a lie.
DreadKnight: asciilifeform, steven hawkings might be smart, but he's stuck in a wheel chair, so not much for him to do besides brainstorm :P
asciilifeform: DreadKnight: his intellectual milieu is more crippling than his paralysis
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what i don't know is that ~everyone~ is pushing it.
mircea_popescu: you don't judge physics by what highschool teachers say about it.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not everyone. just the grant-eaters.
mircea_popescu: who cares about them ?
mircea_popescu: i thot we were discussing teh science not teh politics.
asciilifeform: 100 yrs from now - no one. but they're the ones who get to build machines.
mircea_popescu: wait, your theory is that the 5-6bn spent to build the lhc could have been better employed building what alternative item ?
asciilifeform: false dichotomy. maxwell needed no $b hardware.
mircea_popescu: so then who cares they get to build machines lol.
mircea_popescu: let em.
DreadKnight: things are getting exponentially harder, it's like the needle in the haystack
mircea_popescu: who knows, maybe a golden chicken falls out of it.
asciilifeform: the harm of the mega-machines is not the wasted money, but that nearly every student of physics now believes that the field is inescapably 'about' the machines
asciilifeform: see mircea_popescu's skyscraper example.
DreadKnight: compare making a wagon with space rockets. NASA is dealing with a lot of math, people and money
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform listen, what 99% of a class believes about the field is uninteresting by the definition of the 99%.
mircea_popescu: 99% of students of physics in 1905 believed it's a resolved problem, too.
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight nasa just got cut off the pipe, actually.
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, I'm glad actually, a NPO like mars one does more interesting stuff
asciilifeform was acquainted with one such '1%' - al schwartz. who has an eminently testable hypothesis re: parity violation, and spent a decade (& counting) trying to score 2 weeks on an eotvos rotor balance. while the charlatans build their $b colliders.

asciilifeform: (short version: adelberger tested all variants of crud, including left- and right-handed machine screws (!) and gleefully pronounced - no parity violation. refused under any pretext to test schwartz and petitjean's 'chiralane' molecule.)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in 2010 i concocted a variant of the test that could be carried out for approx. 50k USD, from scratch. schwartz answered that, in his estimation, the test would work to spec, but results would not be accepted by the field unless carried out on one of the two existing eotvos balances. one - adelberger's, one - chicom. ☟︎☟︎

DreadKnight: drugs are the easiest to get in prisons, most can OD there anytime at will

mircea_popescu: i try to compensate by being a quite public asshole about it, tho. should work.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know, between the meta-nsa nd the petrified forest you got a very dissonant thing going. how about the petrified-nsa and the meta-forest ?
asciilifeform not convinced of the physical existence of meta-nsa. it's a gedanken-nsa.
mircea_popescu: benkay would you accept the fermat theorem as research ?
punkman: fluffypony, I've only tried imitations made in EU, I imagine the real thing will be even better
mircea_popescu: i mean, obviously valuable scientific research doesn't happen in the govt pen. this is hardly surprising. for that matter, europe has a lrge number of "incubators" for start-ups, even timisoara has one, london thinks it dominates this field
kuzetsa: punkman: pure beef?
mircea_popescu: yet the only bilion dollar eu start-up to date happened outside of all that.
asciilifeform: if 'meta-nsa' exists in the flesh, it's probably an assemblage of one grey-haired officer and his two dozen or so apprentices, embedded deep within the scar tissue of usg and surviving in spite of, rather than due to, the overall management. ☟︎☟︎

benkay: // glass? do you mean google?
benkay: and also DreadKnight ambiguity is good for your brain.
mircea_popescu: FabianB: isn't on bbet either, often bets with 0.1 on yes and 10 btc on no << that's not so often is it ?
mircea_popescu: jurov from what i gather you're looking for a product marketable to the retail investor. that'd likely be mpif. it makes about 1% or so.
mircea_popescu: and has an adequate risk profile. (note that s.dice DID NOT have an adequate risk profile, and the dividends came at considerable capital risk. that the bitcoin retail investor is clueless enough to shove that under the rug makes little difference)
mircea_popescu: jurov: and if situation gets interesting, mp can pull asks, leaving me unable to add something to other side << i shouldn't be the only person in that market. provided anyone gives a shit about the derps themselves or their general market, enough to actually spend the usd they CLAIM to have received in investment, then that market should easily compete with s.mpoe.
mircea_popescu: whether it will or whether it wont fundamentally hinges on whether the vc economy is as relevant for bitcoin as mpoe is. which is a point i can't hardly help i dont think
mircea_popescu: jurov: and risk having bitcoins frozen on mpex? for years? << generally, bitcoin stays frozen somewhere anyway. who cycles bitcoin ?
mircea_popescu: pigeons: no there is a lot of truth to that << there' sa lot of truth to this : there IS NO OTHER SIDE. it's just words on the web.
DreadKnight: benkay, I quoted you, so don't ask me what you meant,lol I just considered you meant to kill them (nuke them) xD
mircea_popescu: i got tons of commends and invitations to discuss and socially groom on the topic of eth. meanwhile, the scammers cycled 5k btc or w/e, at 2k, and i got exactly 0 btc at 5k.
mircea_popescu: now no matter how you dice it, this simply says nobody is doing any buying at all.
DreadKnight: benkay, but yeah, sometimes ambiguity helps making associations and remembering is all about that, plus some brain exercising is not bad, but I thought it's what you had against those people wanting to make a coin called "bacon" or "bacoin"
mircea_popescu: punkman: even if you don't get the believers to trade, you get them to pass up 2.5x discount and maybe consider that keeping their BTC might be better than giving them to random derps. << this is exactly it.
mircea_popescu: glbse idiots didn't move to mpex after i ruined the various "mining" crap. but they DID stop doing it on glbse, and that was that.
DreadKnight: benkay, anyway, associating psychologically something (digital in this case) with food is strange, which I don't like regarding Apple
mircea_popescu: fluffypony: so maybe the DERPs would have been better suited to have been run on Havelol by an independent intermediary << hardly, havelol lists 50% and more directly arbitrageable gaps all the time.
mircea_popescu: basically, if it's not one of the things they misrepresent, it looks like a pig w/o a lipstick.
mircea_popescu: jurov: that's the point, i expect f.* to be impossible to liquidate, unless there is a leak or "leak" << how do you mean ?
punkman: leak of IPO information, and I think he meant d.*
jurov: punkman yes
benkay: DreadKnight: i have no idea where you're getting food. oh - bacon? where's the AAPL connection?
mircea_popescu: jurov punkman i don't follow the logic here. explain to me like i was 5 ?
mircea_popescu: unrelatedly : anyone wanna do some alpha testing of a brand new service ?
mircea_popescu: raise your left toe.
jurov: like i wrote on s.nsa example, no one will put bids till there's some news
mircea_popescu: jurov if you want to sell, why aren't you putting asks up ?
mircea_popescu: the way market works is that if you know what you want to do, you announce it.
mircea_popescu: if yu don't know, then you don't announce.
mircea_popescu: it is sinful to at the same time know and not have announced.
jurov: i have multiple past experiences that one has to wait months for such asks to be sold
mircea_popescu: how low ?
DreadKnight: benkay, bacon is food, apple is food, naming software or hardware after food is somewhat applying psychological manipulation, think about the Pavlov's dog
mircea_popescu: obviously the price and time correlate, i'd think
DreadKnight: benkay, so when you talk about common stuff like food you think about the less known altcoin or hardware company and the other way around, which is evil
jurov: iirc 20% above ipo/long time average price
benkay: the world is full of associations. policing your brain is your own problem, imho.
mircea_popescu: jurov so it'd take months to sell for more than the average ? this is expected no ?
mircea_popescu: but this is a sidepoint anyway, im more interested in the f.* impossible to liquidate thing
benkay: finance must create incentives for long-term investment, otherwise it's not really useful.
DreadKnight: benkay, most people when they hear "apple" get a little more spit in their mouth, it's how psychology works, you have involuntary reflexes which you can't control properly
benkay: DreadKnight: i care zero whits about most people.
DreadKnight: so it's not really my own problem, is something related to our design and the masses
DreadKnight: you are people
kuzetsa: DreadKnight: when I hear "apple" I think of the company and feel a little sick
benkay: jurov et al a huge issue in btc finance right now is the lack of long term plays and the fixation on returns! now!

mircea_popescu: which... yeah, i can see it'd be a problem.

jurov: same happened with f.mpif recently

mircea_popescu: and i guess if it weren't on coindesk. which two are problly synonymous anywaqy.
benkay: i suppose if they're undifferentiable from other chicom-originating crap, DreadKnight. otherwise, there's value provided that a brand has nothing to do with.
benkay: what's the MPEx brand and how does it make or break MPEx?
DreadKnight: benkay, took my quite a bit to remember that MPEx thing and figure out what part of it names stand for, still not sure about the full name; it's an acronym; anyway, stock related stuff is usually named using acronyms and rather obscure compared to regular brands

DreadKnight: benkay, anyway, was wondering why you said you would nuke those people since you didn't provided an argument; are you against seeing more joke coins or what?
DreadKnight: altcoins are kinda like linux distros nowadays, a lot of people making yet another one for no apparent reason (trying to get rich with not much work), just to change the name and such, hoping they might get lucky
DreadKnight: there are only a few coins that actually bring something new to the table
asciilifeform: DreadKnight: other than (arguably) 'litecoin' - which?
DreadKnight: well, most alt coins change some variables around, just like linux distros change default packages and wallpaper
asciilifeform: right. so which ones bring something new ?
DreadKnight: some try to improve stuff under the hood, but I don't have the technical expertise to figure out if those changes are really improvements
DreadKnight: they're kinda like branches of software, so a bit of experimentation is good to be done in "test areas" rather than on the popular blockchain everybody is using
DreadKnight: it's good to have ltc around, just like there's both gold and silver
DreadKnight: it's not very likely any time soon that all humans will only use a coin, same goes for languages; a lot of people benefit from conversions / exchanges
asciilifeform: DreadKnight: i'd argue that ltc is an experiment ('let's banish asic') that failed.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 1910 @ 0.00289999 = 5.539 BTC [-]
DreadKnight: asciilifeform, well, after GPU mining was redundant on btc, a lot of people switched to ltc, but pretty much no coin is worth mining with GPU anymore now
DreadKnight: so it was just a matter of time; mining difficulty keeps increasing
benkay: <DreadKnight> some try to improve stuff under the hood, but I don't have the technical expertise to figure out if those changes are really improvements // if the improvement isn't plain as the nose on my kike face it and everyone behind it are going to get glassed
benkay: improvement on the scale of bitcoin over dollars
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ltc is primarily the politician's captive daughter re "we'll ban bitcoin!"
DreadKnight: yeah, in case btc gets banned, you got more fish in the pond; so either ban "digital currencies" but fiat money kinda got converted to digital with credit cards
DreadKnight: and bank accounts
DreadKnight: so banning digital currencies altogether would be hypocritical
mircea_popescu: it's not merely "more fish in the pond". that's the easy part. "more swimming fishes, that are doing fine in spite of a laundry list of <deffects> you may imagine"
punkman: DreadKnigh, fiat was digital much earlier than computers
mircea_popescu: that spells out "you don't matter" in politician english.
xmj_: you know
xmj_: someone banning bitcoin would be the best thing ever, as it's much like a hydra.
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, yeah good point, but I see ltc as the "next missile in line to fire", just in case
mircea_popescu: xmj_ taleb sed so, AndrewJackson even has it in his part message.
chetty: ban bitcoin? might as well try to ban the internet

chetty: pass a law, it shall not rain until after sundown

asciilifeform: any earnest attempted ban would presumably include all blockchain-based tech
chetty: why everyone who noticed of coure
asciilifeform: (the way usa used to ban drugs by name, but now includes a kind of 'regexp' matcher of chemical structure)
xmj_: there's a way around every law; loopholes are built-in by default anyway.
DreadKnight: hah, there are a lot of re-branded pharmaceutical drugs nowadays, basically the same thing as aspiring or other common stuff, just at way higher prices
dub: remembering the internet does get banned periodically in various locales
chetty: if its against the law to rain before sundown then it cannot happen and if you say it did you are guilty of something
DreadKnight: you don't get to see aspiring ads displayed on tv anyway
dub: and parts of it are permanently banned in many places
dub: there are technical measures they could bring against bitcoin
DreadKnight: I like that btc got mentioned quite a few times in a sci-fi / futuristic show called "Almost Human"
asciilifeform wasn't suggesting that bans 'work', but disputing that ltc is any kind of pill against whatever effect a hypothetical ban might have.

dub: key word 'periodically'
mircea_popescu: there's two conflated points here. you can ban "consumer" grade shit any time. this is fine but irrelevant. bitcoin is not consumer stuff.
mircea_popescu: banning consumer grade shit usually is accomplished through being poor.
mircea_popescu: this is fine for everyone involved.
mircea_popescu: if us bans cotton tomorrow, or oil, or w/e, it'd simply be because it finally became too poor to afford it.
mircea_popescu: like the house of many bans meat.

dub: but a spring in the sense of populace uprising, nah
mircea_popescu: dub it won't be identified or self-identify as "populace"
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, the mexican drug cartels already sprung all the way to arizona.
mircea_popescu: this will continue.

asciilifeform: i vaguely recall his tale, that one of the casualties was on irc, chronicling his last hours
mircea_popescu: and that was an embassy. not "accidental death" walking down the street.

asciilifeform: bankers get nailgunned by their own заградотряд.
mircea_popescu: much, much more dangerous than the empire is to the world at large.
decimation: I don't think the usg hides this stuff either, it just gets pushed into statistics that no one reads. The usg has a compulsion to account for itself (in its own crazy way)
asciilifeform: (russia did not invent заградотряд - rome had it. and whatever rome we get 1000 yrs from now will too)
mircea_popescu: in fact, a us agent has better chances of being shot on the job than someone breaking a us law of being sent to jail.
decimation: well, considering that in practice nearly everything can be construed as illegal in the us, that's probably true
mircea_popescu: well, how's that thought sit with you

mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete i had the same problem earlier today
mircea_popescu: FabianB well thatr's only a point if the odds aren't right. if they're right, doubling the 99% side will yield a doubling of the 1% side.
