assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 12352 @ 0.00082262 = 10.161 BTC [-]
decimation: "A U.S. District Court has ruled that Argentina can't pay holders of restructured bonds until it compensates the holdouts, who have sued for full payment on bonds the country defaulted on in 2001. Some investors accepted discounted bonds in restructurings in 2005 and 2010. The bonds fall under New York jurisdiction because they were issued in New York."
decimation: This is why New York thinks it can throw its "weight" around with bitcoin regulation
BingoBoingo: Well, it seems... New York isn't as important as it used to be if Newer New York can flip it the bird
BingoBoingo: !up jwSchool
The20YearIRCloud: joy
The20YearIRCloud: so argentina is in default because they can't restructur ethe bonds from 2001?
BingoBoingo: the20year: Well, because the people who didn't want the to resturcture... Were the ones who claimed jurisdiction
The20YearIRCloud: guess i have a hard time grasping it
The20YearIRCloud: I don't understand why they issued debt through new york, unless they had to be approved in a US state in order to sell it here
BingoBoingo: the20year: Well, that's why New York Imagines they can regulate Bitcoin, because New York is where people used to have to trade if the wanted access to capital
The20YearIRCloud: lots of VC and capital in NY , i'm sure they feel like they're still gateway to the US
BingoBoingo: Well, this is why the trend in US States not named New York seems to be Not really regulating Bitcoin-Bitcoin interaction
BingoBoingo: Especially Texas.
The20YearIRCloud: are there any states that have said they want to regulate?
BingoBoingo: They dunno how Big Bitcoin might get, but if it takes off this seems to be the chance for them to leave New York's shadow

BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: I find the wording I used more accurate than your suggested correction.

mircea_popescu: i've not put out a scam tag on it if that's what you';re asking.
peeta: ok, yeah, that's what I was asking.. "actively" being my clumsy way of asking if you had more than vague, general misgivings or just no reason to trust it
peeta: ok, changing topic... I recently learned about volatility drag for the first time... I'm assuming you're familiar with it?
fluffypony: I prefer my women to be women
fluffypony: never been a fan of drag
peeta: lol
peeta: so, I know you were supportive of Just-Dice at the beginning... I'm guessing you followed the nakowa saga?
peeta: what I was wondering is if nakowa's big win can be explained by volatility drag or not
mircea_popescu: events aren't really to be explained is the thing. what are you goint to explain ?
mircea_popescu: fluffypony do they even have drag in south africa ?
fluffypony: lol
fluffypony: we have drag racers
mircea_popescu: just like canada down there huh.
mircea_popescu: !up peeta
mircea_popescu: who're you anyway ?
peeta: ok, so it all hinges on the max profit %... if it was anything above 2% a blowup was likely because the volatility drag would be over the expected earnings
peeta: soon after nakowa the max profit % went from 1% to 0.5%
peeta: who am I? honestly just someone wanting to learn... but I have no one to bounce ideas with
peeta: sorry if I'm just blurting this out without much preamble
peeta: I was a Just-Dice investor
peeta: btw, were you, a JD investor?
mircea_popescu: yes, i gave the site a start.
peeta: ok, thanks for hearing my ramblings... I'll go sleep and mull this over and hopefully come back with fresher thoughts... goodbye :)
mircea_popescu: anyway, for the record, "volatility drag" is an artefact of the poor public school system in the us. the only reason it exists is that people do arithmetic rather than geometric %s. in other words, they don't compound.
mircea_popescu: it's also mildly useful for crooked hedge fund mangers to explain to their half smart moneyed audience why exactly it is that i can make any % i want and they can only make a % that's two digits no matter what happens.

BingoBoingo: ziggamon: So BTC is religious in the Cantor's going mad contemplating infinities and set theory way?
ziggamon: BingoBoingo: perhaps something like that
thickasthieves: as a vessel for hope, I suppose it is religious
ziggamon: any religion starts with a cool magic trick. distributed consensus among among liars and thieves is a pretty neat trick
BingoBoingo: ziggamon: There's a long history of people surrounded by math feeling a touch of religion through the purity of the numbers
thickasthieves: see Anathem
BingoBoingo: Pythagoras and his cult are usually the first ones people remember
ziggamon: I mean religious in quotes. as in something that is within the realm of belief. you must trust the invisible hand that powers the consensus mechanism.

mircea_popescu: or is it for rubbing or something

justusranvier: Exactly. That's why homeopathy is a scam
justusranvier: It's just distilled placebo water
mircea_popescu: no lol. it doesn't work at less dillution either :)
justusranvier: There are many reasons why homeopathy is a scam
mircea_popescu: but yeah, i suppose it's a good proof they don't grok objective reality.
xanthyos: homeopathy doesn't require any molecules of the original solution to remain. the theory is that it changes the resonance of surrounding water molecules in the same way that ice-nine worked in kurt vonnegut's "cat's cradle"
xanthyos: 6.02 X 10^23 hydrogens weighs 1 gram
xanthyos: so 10^60 is 37 orders of magnitude less concentrated than that
justusranvier: There are people who sell higher than 30C dilutions
The20YearIRCloud: i have a theory that everyone on the internet is a computer designed to interact with me. The reality is there was a global war 40 years ago that went nuclear, all countries do not exist, the US is the only one left

pete_dushenski: ColinT: research sounds too solitary
chetty: sadly this sort of outrage is showing up daily
ColinT: Gosh, all my research seems social ;D
pete_dushenski: it's more like camp for smart kids
pete_dushenski: chetty: sorta how it ends
ColinT: I'm not sure humans are the greatest at coming to intelligent conclusions in groups
ColinT: Too much subconscious "monkey psychology"
ColinT: I would so most of my research is solitary, not social
ColinT: say*
chetty: ColinT, this group, if you can call it that never seems to reach conclusions, just send all away with more homework
ColinT: I'm not someone who thinks rationally in groups - because groups of people don't think rationally
ColinT: Haha
pete_dushenski: well, the people here aren't just "humans," we're full fledged people
ColinT: What is this some kind of cult?
pete_dushenski: so we do come to some pretty intelligent conclusions
chetty: nah, cults have leaders and ideas, a real lack of both around here
pete_dushenski: rationalism is overrated anyways
pete_dushenski: chetty: lol
ColinT: Logical thinking is over-rated? ;D
ColinT: Nothing works without logic... Not even people
ColinT: Not even irrational people
pete_dushenski: logical =/= rational
ColinT: Emotion is still a type of logic
chetty: well the odd thought flow here tends to but unusal ideas next to each opther, produces some very interesting results
mircea_popescu: <ColinT> I'm not someone who thinks rationally in groups - because groups of people don't think rationally << depends on the group.
mircea_popescu: but no, emotion ain't no type o' logic i ever heard of.
mircea_popescu: they speak english in emotion ?
ColinT: Human emotions are neural network based..
ColinT: So they are computed yes
chetty: I think there are some hormones in taht mix ..
ColinT: If we didn't feel pain when we put our hands on a hot stove - that would be a problem
ColinT: It's a type of reasoning that we do subconsciously in order to guide our actions in the world - it's implications go beyond hot stoves though
mircea_popescu: computed != logic.
mircea_popescu: everything's "computed", water in a glass included.
ColinT: Not sure I follow
mircea_popescu: logic is a very narrowly, absolutely defined subclass of "computed"
mircea_popescu: ColinT a glass full of water is a glass-sized computator for water molecule position within a glass inside a gravitational field.
mircea_popescu: this does not make it logic.
mircea_popescu: the major point of difference being that out of the glass, of water or of emotion, one can extract usable entropy. not so from logic, at all.
ColinT: But using it as a "computator", or its use as a "computator" has it following logical rules...
ColinT: As long as you don't change the shape of the glass, the gravitational field, etc
ColinT: I don't know what that means
ColinT: "Useable entropy"?
