mircea_popescu: seems totally bankrupt ideology. intellectually, practically... what's it stand for anymore ?
decimation: well, I would suggest that the left has so utterly dominated for so long that they have become a cartoon of themselves
thickasthieves: i have a feeling this berksire bet will be legendary past our years
mircea_popescu: more like, the derpage in charge has been nominally identified as "left" for so long.

mircea_popescu: thickasthieves actually, it's quite possible it's the only thing that'l even be remembered
mircea_popescu: sort-of like nobody remembers glbse, or bitcoin magazine, or w/e other derpage went on in the 2012s.
thickasthieves: so who's putting another 1k on Yes?
mircea_popescu: the thing with that is... people have waited for a while. as a result the sides are weight-unbalanced. the seed 1k on yes has a 100k weight whereas current bets only get 40k
mircea_popescu: whereas the recent 2.5k on no have 40k weight.
mircea_popescu: or 45 w/e
mircea_popescu: so the pool is like 123mn to 100mn.

DanielKrawisz: Basically, we started out as an econ discussion group at a university called the Mises Circle, but then I got everyone talking almost exclusively about bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: reddit is there to try and leech something if at all possible. sort-of like an online hot topic.

DanielKrawisz: Well we wanted to use that name because we agreed that a lot of the bitcoin world was trying to downplay him.
Dimsler: people that put bit or coin into anything should be publically flogged
mircea_popescu: you mean cryptopublically bitflogged ?
DanielKrawisz: Hahaha
Dimsler: DanielKrawisz, because cryptographics was not invented by him
Dimsler: and cryptographic based currencies and other online currencies have been around since digicash
Dimsler: which was like 1989
mircea_popescu: DanielKrawisz that's unavoidable. it's the nature of the ignorant twerps making up the us horde, to overplay their own narcisism against history.
DanielKrawisz: Digicash is very different from bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: i'm surprised nobody's yet acting as if they invented hitler, back in iowa or something
DanielKrawisz: It's a money substitute, like a bank note. I'm writing a paper on this stuff now.

Dimsler: lol
mircea_popescu: this is like saying cars have been around since 1600 because oxcarts.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform right you are, huh.
mircea_popescu: Dimsler wouldja stop trying to drive people into a wall deliberately.
DanielKrawisz: Then there were some proposals for digital collectibles; b-money, RPOW, and bit gold. Those things were an important step forward, but RPOW was the only one ever implemented, and it didn't take off. I don't think they would have worked. Bitcoin fixed a lot of stuff that they got wrong.
Dimsler: lol ok ok
mircea_popescu: yeah, like, penicillin fixed a lot of stuff shaman cures got wrong.
mircea_popescu: let's be clear here : wanting something, no matter how intensively, is NOT grounds for relation with the thing once made.

mircea_popescu: decimation myeah, actual science is for rich people, not for clerks.
Dimsler: just like BA studies are
mircea_popescu: people who hope to make their living at science can not be considered scientists. that should be the first crtierion on the peer review process. "independently wealthy ?" if no, can not participate in science.
bounce: with nice hand-blown instruments in brass cases!
mircea_popescu: this seems obvious enough with say, love. people who hope to earn a living at it can't really make very good lovers.
decimation: mainly because they have the 'free time' that asciilifeform desires
mircea_popescu: yet somehow when it leaves that realm everyone's suddenly confused.
decimation: probably the same thing with medicine too
mircea_popescu: with the independent professions it becomes more iffy. doctors and lawyers earned their keep doing the job for centuries without ill effect.
Dimsler: medicine is such nigger work
mircea_popescu: for just as long as they depended for pay on their own customers.
bounce: plenty scientists have done so on sufferance of the local lord, no reason why they couldn't do it on sufferance of the government
mircea_popescu: once they started being paid by corporations / the state, it all went to shit.
Dimsler: i don't know a single non-american doctor who isn't miserable
mircea_popescu: bounce name one.
mircea_popescu: Dimsler i know plenty.
decimation: as the link I put up yesterday explained, most doctors did more to hurt than heal before 1900, the 'talented amateur' was the local nurse lady who would try to keep you comfortable
bounce: pfft. too early to do the research.
mircea_popescu: bounce then allow me to use this opportunity to expose before your eyes your own automatism.
mircea_popescu: what other places is it operant ?
Dimsler: problem with being a scientifist in todays modern age is you aren't working from home
Dimsler: you're stuck in academia
mircea_popescu: decimation dubious theory, but anyway.
Dimsler: very dubious
mircea_popescu: generally the problem is that people ascribe the benefits of santiation to medicine. this is false.
mircea_popescu: actual doctors today are about as hacky/harmful as they were cca 1714.
Dimsler: correct
mircea_popescu: mostly because the problem they face is so complex.
Duffer1: speaking of dr, that coffee was a big hit, thanks for the suggestion MP
decimation: yeah I would say that's probably true in most cases
mircea_popescu: Duffer1 cheers.
Dimsler: which coffee?

Duffer1: nurse gifts, 3lbs of primo coffee per shift
Duffer1: and for dr
mircea_popescu: decimation you can appreciate the shittyness of it, right ? suppose you were given the task of fixing code you may not read running on a one of a kind processor you don't even have the spec for.
mircea_popescu: and then blamed you for the results, but praised "nature" for the success.
decimation: yeah, it's a delicate microstructure and your tools are basically 'hammer' and 'sledge'

mircea_popescu: THREE!!! three choices!
asciilifeform: problem of definitions.
asciilifeform: 'doctor' is - cleanup crew.

asciilifeform: then everyone with some money can scan himself when he wakes up, right after toilet, for malignant growths.
asciilifeform: say +10 lifespan, whatever. who gets credit?
asciilifeform: doctors? nope
asciilifeform: similar to sanitation example.
decimation: asciilifeform: the scanner would have to see down the molecules to determine malignancy in-situ
mircea_popescu: i doubt malignancies are the main problem. i think the main problem of medicine today is still metabolism
mircea_popescu: mirroring exactly the situation in the times of mr h.
asciilifeform: decimation: not necessarily. just monitor for out-of-place masses, would go a long way.
asciilifeform: consider, elsewhere:
mircea_popescu: three thousand years and uncountable changes in everything later.
asciilifeform: firemen get (and deserve) no credit for the relative incombustibility of modern dwellings compared to those of the past.
Dimsler: lol the past?
Dimsler: you mean like
Dimsler: concrete?
asciilifeform: pre-concrete
mircea_popescu: actually... i think us houses are the most combustible things ever in the history of dwellings.
Dimsler: there was firemen pre-concrete?
asciilifeform: (if you must, old japan vs. current)
mircea_popescu: Dimsler firemen have as much history as the french.
Dimsler: yeah like the combustable house and obsession with firemen is a north american thing
decimation: well, loads of bureaucrats have been harassing people to spray various dubious fireproofing chemicals on everything
asciilifeform: Dimsler: nope. in japan, far greater obsession even.
mircea_popescu: yeah but in japan they have cause.
Dimsler: yeah i know
asciilifeform: paper houses. just like present-day usa.
asciilifeform: poor countries are much alike.
mircea_popescu: problem i nthe usa isn't as much the per se combustibility, more like, all the evil shit sandwiched in there
mircea_popescu: fumes will kill you before the fire even warms you a little
Dimsler: so canucky in here
asciilifeform is reminded to buy current gas mask canisters

mircea_popescu: that's your "not independently wealthy" example ?!

decimation: pediwiki: The term relay rack appeared first in the world of telephony.[2] By 1911, the term was also being used in railroad signaling.[3] There is little evidence that the dimensions of these early racks were standardized. The 19-inch rack format with rack-units of 1.75 inches and holes tapped for 12-24 screws with alternating spacings of 1.25 inches and 0.5 inch was an established standard by 1934.[4] The EIA standard was revised
decimation: again in 1992 to comply with the 1988 public law 100-418, setting the standard U as 44.5mm (15.9mm + 15.9mm + 12.7mm), making each "U" officially 1.752 inches.[5] en.wikipedia.org/wiki/19-inch_rack

mircea_popescu: which means you can add all of the black africa too
pete_dushenski_: being the roman?
pete_dushenski_: have you been to israel?
mircea_popescu: well yeah
pete_dushenski_: in south america i've been to colombia and brazil. also visited most of central america, mexico, and a solid chunk of the caribbean islands.
pete_dushenski_: but... never lived anywhere else.
mircea_popescu: yeah, i tend to do more intensive sort of travels.
mircea_popescu: "2. We improve the economy by attacking without mercy the concept of globalism, eliminating all foreign aid to non-White third world nations, all nations controlled by Zionist interests, and first and foremost eliminate all aid to Israel, also end all domestic aid and handouts to non-Whites, and finally disband and dissolve the Jewish-run Federal Reserve and overhaul the American stock market and the way that has worke
mircea_popescu: d for decades."
mircea_popescu: dude the policy ideas of homebrew candidates are fabulous.
mircea_popescu: "We eliminate the Muslim terror threat by first eliminating all support for Israel and then by additionally deporting all Muslims out of the American nation back to the Arab world."
mircea_popescu: that's gotta work :
mircea_popescu: :D
pete_dushenski_: maybe they should just make an ebola to target moslems?
decimation: well, it would be cheaper for the us to simply ban pakistani immigration rather than try to be omniscient w.r.t. pakistani terrorism and so forth
pete_dushenski_: it'd be more cost-effective!
mircea_popescu: decimation why do you suppose banning immigration does anything ?
decimation: well, I would ban all forms of border crossing
mircea_popescu: on what border ?
decimation: from selected states
decimation: heh good point
mircea_popescu: you could directly experiment with this idea. you could draw a line in your room, and ban all crossings of that line. see if it does anything for any variable you wish to measure.
mircea_popescu: i imagine at best it'd to nothing perceptible, if you choose the line well.
mircea_popescu: but otherwise it can become a major pain.
decimation: this problem largely solved itself in the past when only somebodies could afford to travel
mircea_popescu: what problem tho ?
decimation: well, I guess I buy into the idea that a nation and an genetic group are closely related

pete_dushenski_: mircea_popescu: and i also like that you linked "contravex" directly to the troll article rather than the homepage. i take that as a seal o' approval :)
mircea_popescu: for some reason i prefer to link articles.
decimation: at any rate I'm sure that these hick canidates will be promoted so that their hatred can become a shared experience for their political enemies
mircea_popescu: guy doesn't seem motivated by anything but the usual driver of reality show attendants.
mircea_popescu: that ain't hate.
mircea_popescu: and for that matter, people tend to flatter themselves with that word a lot. an ability to hate is strictly realted to spending time in conditions not available to the average english speaking derp.
mircea_popescu: much like love ain't available to the same populace.
decimation: My language was imprecise: I meant that that he would be the object of common hatred
decimation: or at least common derision
mircea_popescu: i doubt he's all that stable. he doesn't look it in any case.
mircea_popescu: "Mayo noted that Frazier Glenn Miller, who was a member of the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist groups, ran for the U.S. Senate in Missouri in 2010. He was charged this year in the shooting deaths of a 14-year-old boy and his grandfather outside an Overland Park, Kan., Jewish community center."
mircea_popescu: lol these obnoxious pests.
mircea_popescu: im sure there's no libtard that ever killed anyone. o.O
decimation: heh when a libtard kills someone it's just because he's crazy, not for any political reason
mircea_popescu: well... there's a lot of merit in that. how else could his alleged "political" oppinions be explained.
decimation: I guess my point is that the media likes to trump up the crazy nazi kkk guy when there were 415 murders in chicago last year
thestringpuller: d0000d
decimation: and 33,561 traffic deaths (in the us)
mircea_popescu: if it makes you feel any better, the media does the same here. there were i dunno, like five murders in a 20mn pop town.
mircea_popescu: that's what, 5x la
decimation: if the average us guy even knows where south america is, he perceives the cities as basically gigantic barrios with constant death
mircea_popescu: they are gigantic barrios, but the only constant is fucking.

decimation: I imagine that most countries perceive the us as a 300 pound giant with the brains of a 12 year old boy
decimation: can be really dangerous if you line yourself up in his sights, but really easy to manipulate
pete_dushenski_: decimation: was 300 10 years ago, now 225.
mircea_popescu: yeah, something like that. i think they mostly perceive it as a combined fuckhole/shithole/eatery
decimation: there's no doubt that there's a gap between 'strength on paper' and 'actual strength, if actually tested'
mircea_popescu: which is kinda perverse.
pete_dushenski_: and can therefore be subdued by a lean 140 pounder.

BingoBoingo: Mizzou scares in that after the way the SEC championship game ended last year they still have no defense against the ground game.
RagnarDanneskjol: i forget, were runs getting through the D line or is breakdown in the backfield.. or both
BingoBoingo: RagnarDanneskjol: Both. The Runningbacks almost always find a way around the line if they have any speed and in the backfield the people with speed to catch up to them lack the mass to take them down efficiently

ben_vulpes: RagnarDanneskjol: many devs respond to a few here and there, but the random sample is typically not enough cash, bizarre stacks, crazy mgmt or {google,yahoo,ms} again instead of anything interesting. a few interactions like this and the dev is poisoned against recruiters forever.
bounce: don't forget the completely dysfunctional and often insane "matching", selecting on completely irrelevant criteria, and obvious, screaming lies by the bucketload.
RagnarDanneskjol: ok. this is like having a bad experience with a front desk secretary and holding it against every secretary you ever encounter. Recruiters are just doing the work of sorting and moving candidates through the interview process. How else would you ever get another job? at some point everyone has to deal with a recruiter (or whoever acts as company recruiter/hr generalist) -otherwise st
RagnarDanneskjol: ay unemployed
RagnarDanneskjol: lies about what?
ben_vulpes: the notion that a person must go through a recruiter to get a job is utter nonsense.
RagnarDanneskjol: I think you misunderstand what a recruiter is (common misconception)
bounce: how else? by getting pulled in by someone, or by bumping into the (technically savvy) owner of the shop, something like that. the key is to talk to someone who knows about the job, not the "specialist" who doesn't know word from writer.
RagnarDanneskjol: they are often generalized as being staffing agencies
ben_vulpes: if you're growing a dev team and your devs aren't actively bringing in their friends, you're doing it entirely incorrectly.
RagnarDanneskjol: every company over 20 people has a staff recruiter who manages the interview/negotiation process
bounce: IME the staffing agencies that claim to specialise in IT recruiting are possibly worse than generic agencies. claim to know their shit then don't.
ben_vulpes: <RagnarDanneskjol> every company over 20 people has a staff recruiter who manages the interview/negotiation process << false.
RagnarDanneskjol: yea - you are getting staffing agencies confused w/ recruiters
ben_vulpes: in an engineering organization, this is an engineering function for engineering roles.
RagnarDanneskjol: so who identifies candidates?
bounce: somebody who knows about the job.
RagnarDanneskjol: so the hiring manager does recruitment - bad policy
ben_vulpes: anyone receiving emails on the "get in touch with us" inbox
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 37930 @ 0.00074503 = 28.259 BTC [-]
ben_vulpes: what? why?
ben_vulpes: so you can shoehorn yourself in?
RagnarDanneskjol: Oh so the company only hires candidates who happen to find their open position - bad policy
RagnarDanneskjol: guaranteed to have a weak workforce
bounce: pfft. instead of some consultancy throwing out the adverts and pouring their "special sauce" over the incoming applications?
ben_vulpes: maybe for bigcorp.
bounce: IMO that's a worse policy, since it muddles the input needlessly
RagnarDanneskjol: again - that is a staffing agency - different and I agree they are wasteful
ben_vulpes: for companies with reputations for quality, it's not nearly as guaranteed as you claim.
ben_vulpes: spamgun, anyone?
ben_vulpes: you're also ignoring the "whole team does recruiting" strategy.
RagnarDanneskjol: you understand how it makes sense to have someone dedicated to locating the best talent available is bettter than hoping talent finds you?
bounce: does it?
bounce refers to the google study on a related subject
ben_vulpes: i don't hope, i plan and execute.
ben_vulpes: we identify target hires as a group and then fucking hire them.
ben_vulpes: we also chew through contractors, looking for people to hire.
RagnarDanneskjol: how do you locate them? its a full time job
ben_vulpes: people go to meetups
ben_vulpes: developer nights
ben_vulpes: ux nights
ben_vulpes: design nights
ben_vulpes: we host the odd one of the above
ben_vulpes: i network my ass off
RagnarDanneskjol: so hiring managers put in a bunch of extra overtime to do recruitment
ben_vulpes: (in support of sales *and* recruitment)
RagnarDanneskjol: instead of having a professional do it
ben_vulpes: not overtime
ben_vulpes: tis a part of the job, identifying and bringing on collaborators.
ben_vulpes: maybe someday i'll outsource leadgen, but i've yet to find anyone to trust with the job because they all sound as full of shit as you.
RagnarDanneskjol: how is that?
ben_vulpes: finding people who can do sales lead gen is hard enough, how the fuck am i to trust someone whose technical competence i have no notion of to identify people with technical talent?
RagnarDanneskjol: you intervieeww them
ben_vulpes: typically the interview is aborted by pitches like yours.
RagnarDanneskjol: I'm not pitching anyone
RagnarDanneskjol: just trying to dispel misconceptions
bounce: HR can take care of the paperwork, and "managing" appointments and such. but building the team is up to the manager, not to the recruiter.
ben_vulpes: does the recruiter then interview my team as well?
Azelphur: ben_vulpes: he must be somewhat good at spotting talent, he hired me ;)
ben_vulpes: Azelphur: you stand out.
bounce: debatable *rimshot*
ben_vulpes: published libs and such
Azelphur shrugs
Azelphur: I didn't know putting random crap on github was standing out, but ok o.O

mats_cd03: and internal MSFT rumors suggest that the skip from windows 9 to 10 was due to developers parsing os version strings of 'windows 95/98' badly, e.g. testing for just 'windows 9' in the substring
mircea_popescu: hey, i've not killed anyone in at least fifteen years.
Dimsler: can't spell manslaughter without laughter
mircea_popescu: mats_cd03 ahahaha that'd be the lol of all time.
mircea_popescu: man's laughter.
mats_cd03: mircea_popescu: well, you did use the phrase 'a man being savaged', and well, being a gangster in your youth. plus, the only images i've seen of you are in suits
mircea_popescu: savaged, of course, means this speciffic hunting technique where the preditor opens the abdominal cavity of the prey
mats_cd03: i felt strangely detached from the spectacle of it.
mats_cd03: like, hm, this is happening right now. i'm watching a man die.
mircea_popescu: like the african dogs do
mats_cd03: and none of the other clueless chicken heads have any idea what they're seeing.

BingoBoingo: thickasthieves: What? People with giant wide displays maximize windows to read text?
thickasthieves: i guess i'm just in the minority
BingoBoingo: thickasthieves: Well the design is just to get the thing started. I just don't know of any graceful way to handle the problem of really big monitors.
thickasthieves: center the page
thickasthieves: doesnt even require css ;)
punkman: ol' trusty <center>
BingoBoingo: thickasthieves: But that leaves big ole empty wings
bounce: forgot whose study it was, but apparently the easiest to read is about 65 cols referencing fixed-pitch.
thickasthieves: well you prefer your content to be in the wing?
thickasthieves: or both wings on one side?
thickasthieves: and*
bounce: you should do popups complaining that the content is optimised for sane widths and please upgrade your browser and/or your resolution
BingoBoingo: I'll raise the issue with cazalla
BingoBoingo: bounce may be on to something
thickasthieves: yes and all browsers should be magical automatic display handlers and websites only databases
BingoBoingo: Well actually yes browsers should handle the display rather than the site.
bounce: that was the idea, originally. then web"design" happened.
thickasthieves: and all people should be the same
BingoBoingo: Websites shouldn't default to violently raping user hardware
thickasthieves: and all emotion removed from all things
thickasthieves: so we can math our lives away
BingoBoingo: thickasthieves: No, people get to dress up the websites however the wish
bounce: that is the current assumption: hipster with tablet
BingoBoingo: Plenty of ways to do custom CSS with pink and kittens and myspace
thickasthieves: people dont want to dress up websites
bounce: in fact, it rarely happens but could provide multiple layouts for the onlooker to choose
thickasthieves: i understand that a spec for website data would be convenient and provide ease and cleanliness from one perspective
bounce: this about that giant screenshot with two panes on either side and lots of nothing inbetween?
thickasthieves: it's just an impossible ideal for one paradigm
thickasthieves: all computers should use the same hw spec and everyone should program in the same language and use the same db sesign too
bounce: meh. most often all sorts of unwarranted assumptions creep in; web"design" does tent to focus on one thing and massively over-engineers with gratuitous js-reinvention of basic stuff to make it look "nicer"
BingoBoingo: I don't think the current super mininum style is going to be a permanent feature on qntra, but... page load times are a thing. Got to plan for people accessing the internet using dialup through a payphone.
thickasthieves: i'm not saying many websites arent ridiculous
thickasthieves: i'm saying both extremes are
punkman remembers the derps trying to do webfonts before we had webfonts
bounce: in this case it might be more useful to not stick one pane on the right and another on the left hand side, but position them relative to each other instead
bounce: or let the browser put them next or below each other, depending on actual window width.
thickasthieves: the problem is you cant get browsers to fall in line to that kinda thing
thickasthieves: ie microshit everything displaying diff
bounce: you'd have to release the notion of getting an identical picture everywhere. you're not serving up "an experience" or "a picture" or whatever, you're serving up content.
thickasthieves: most people arent though
thickasthieves: they are serving up advertising
thickasthieves: products
thickasthieves: etc
thickasthieves: brands
bounce: though I'd be perfectly willing to ignore any and all redmond products regardless of reported usage percentages, they just don't play well with others
