mircea_popescu: the very fucking point of the legal system as an interllecual exercise is as a reality digitizer.

mircea_popescu: anyway, law as (mis)practiced in the us suffers greatly from a broken application. the legal system exists and is borne out of a wider social system based on hierarchy and personal sovereignity. such as, the classical monarchy.
asciilifeform: so he described the hilarious talmudic gymnastics he and his colleagues insist on to justify various things.
mircea_popescu: trying to make the law democratic by sourcing it in a parliament and applying it according to "what people think" can't possibly work and yhas no alternative but to degrade into soup

mircea_popescu: I have had the occasion to hear tranquil petty bourgeois tell me in the days between the beginnings of the trial and my internment: “It’s impossible to understand Zinoviev … He is so lacking in character!” And I would reply: “Have you yourselves experienced the full weight of the pressure to which he has been subjected for a number of years?” Unintelligent in the extreme are the comparisons, so widespread i

These were the instances of revolutionary tribunes who found the knife of justice suspended over them, directly in the midst of the arena of struggle; at a time when they were in the full flower of their strength, with their nervous system almost untouched and, at the same time, when they despaired of all hope of salvation.
mircea_popescu: …
mircea_popescu: [By contrast] For ten years they [Zinoviev and Kamenev] had been enveloped by clouds of slander paid for in heavy gold. For ten years they had swayed between life and death, first in a political sense, then in a moral sense, and lastly in a physical sense. Can one find in all past history examples of such systematic, refined and fiendish destruction of spines, nerves and all the fibers of the soul? Zinoviev or Kamenev
mircea_popescu: would have had more than ample character for a tranquil period.

pete_dushenski: The Bitcoin Core team recently committed BIP0064, which adds two new commands to the protocol, getutxos and utxos. The getutxos command is used to request unspent transaction information based on the given outpoints, while the utxos command is the response. The BIP was authored by Mike Hearn who also provided the implementation for Bitcoin Core.

nubbins`: !up xanthyos
ThickAsThieves: like you might be able to get your finance guy to wrap the shares into another thing
dvsdude: he wants to give me 1.1
nubbins`: nod
xanthyos: this is what the "legitimate" shuffle algorithm of the world's most popular bitcoin poker site spits out: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BwIkxGxIcAAH34g.jpg
nubbins`: so your choices are 1.1 or 0.0, basically
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 6650 @ 0.00084845 = 5.6422 BTC [+]
dvsdude: yes
nubbins`: xanthyos just as likely as any other 5-card combo XD
xanthyos: i've seen 5 royals in 6 months
nubbins`: dvsdude: i think it's safe to say that keeping the shares will offer you no tangible benefits whatsoever
xanthyos: it took 10 years on pokerstars to see 1
dvsdude: not much i can do here ?
danielpbarron: wow you royaled?
TomServo: You should go to a casino!
xanthyos: casinos use real shufflers
ThickAsThieves: <+nubbins`> dvsdude: i think it's safe to say that keeping the shares will offer you no tangible benefits whatsoever //i dont think i agree with this
xanthyos: i call scams on this site whether i'm ont he winning end or the losing end
xanthyos: my luck doesn't blind me to the thievery
nubbins`: imagine you own cavirtex. wouldn't you do anything in your power to eat up all profits and never pay a dividend?
ThickAsThieves: i suspect Cavirtex is doing fundraising or such and wants to fuck over the real early angels
xanthyos: flop a nut royal with the cards in descending order
nubbins`: sure, "wants to fuck over" is an attitude that doesn't just evaporate
ThickAsThieves: and increases in value
dvsdude: I told him (ceo) that i wanted to phone him
nubbins`: besides, they're fucking class-B shares
nubbins`: bet ya 5 satoshis that the actual owners don't hold class B shares
ThickAsThieves: i bet they hold a bunch
ThickAsThieves: they are doing a buyback after all
nubbins`: well, maybe, let's check the prospectus
dvsdude: I dont like this shifty fuck
nubbins`: oh wait
nubbins`: there isn't one
ThickAsThieves: lol
ThickAsThieves: i might have it saved actually
nubbins`: wat!
ThickAsThieves: looking
nubbins`: dropbox that dutch

ThickAsThieves: my advice is keep the shares

ThickAsThieves: and i skipped that
dvsdude: really ?
ThickAsThieves: yep
ThickAsThieves: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=157789.0
assbot: [For Sale] Shares in coinbase.com
nubbins`: my advice is to start from the assumption your money is gone, and keep or sell the shares based on whether you think they'll be worth +/- 0 in the future
ThickAsThieves: tell him you want IPO price, .64btc ea
dvsdude: but I would have find someone else to buy them later and like nubbins said they are class b shares
ThickAsThieves: the owners will always want to buy them until the company is dying
ThickAsThieves: they wouldnt wanna buy them now if things were bad
kakobrekla: >NastyFans aren't taking any kind of a loss, it is all positive ROI for them. There are no costs associated with NastyFans and hashrate is all a win for them, so taking a loss is actually impossible with our structure.
kakobrekla: oh my.
dvsdude: suppose to call him later not sure ......asked him why I paid 3.3 btc but he only offering me 1.1 ....his answer was lame
ThickAsThieves: note, the original prospectus says nothing about Class B
dvsdude: good one
dvsdude: thats something
ThickAsThieves: it says very little really in regards to share limitations
ThickAsThieves: ah it does say non-voting
ThickAsThieves: fwiw
ThickAsThieves: "his is NOT a separate fund; this is the fund that represents real equity ownership in VirtEx!"
ThickAsThieves: "In the case where VirtEx is bought out by another company or VirtEx pays a dividend to its shareholders, Bitcoin shareholders will get paid in Bitcoin at the Canadian dollar equivalent rate using the best market prices at the time"
ThickAsThieves: yeah i'd hold them shares tight if it were me
