mircea_popescu: , the guy's action to disclose was "reasonable", and your approach only works if you're there as an envoy of the most serene republic or the republic of china, and they are actually afraid that if they misbehave their children are going to be used as ingredients in someone's supper.
mircea_popescu: ie, exactly as you point out, "the devil is not interested in lies, but in liars". so it is. with the caveat that it is not interested in THE TRUTH of anyone's being a liar, but in the useful political lie of anyone having been a liar.
mircea_popescu: so in this sense "cuomo might be corrupt". they... they just haven't figured it out yet lolz.
mircea_popescu: obama also "might" be corrupt. nixon "actually was" corrupt. the difference between these is left as an exercise, but not to the reader of history. it's strictly an exercise to the writer of history.
mircea_popescu: which is, incidentally, why any discussion with the devil may only logically start with a full and unwavering declaration from the devil that it is talking to ~the incorruptible~. ie, outside of its jurisdiction, they whose "corruptness" may not be judged by it.

decimation: pete_dushenski: mid- to long-term, sure, 100% chance of investment going to 0 < not so, usg will *always* repay usd debt
pete_dushenski: and i'll always have a giant boner for lindsay lohan ☟︎
pete_dushenski: until she's not 16 anymore
decimation: the question is just how much usd it needs to magic into existence
pete_dushenski: until.... time
decimation: now, usg paying off gold debt....
decimation: the man who can print money is not a credit risk, he's a risk for something else
pete_dushenski: the man who can print money is perfectly capable of being a credit risk
pete_dushenski: you wanna lend money to mr. monopoly ?
decimation: are you supposing that in the crux he won't print?
pete_dushenski: you really think he can make enough money being a slumlord on James Street ?
decimation: well, his own scrip, sure
pete_dushenski: decimation: i'm supposing he will print 'in the crux' and that no one will take him anymore seriously than the streetwalker wearing 15 hats stacked one on top of the other
decimation: aye, well at that point anything denominated in usd is a risk
pete_dushenski: you see they both have a lottery ticket that they're still waiting to hear back from the corporate board on
pete_dushenski: the board had to reorganise and now everything's up in the air
pete_dushenski: but dun worry because the money is coming
decimation: the question of how long the dollar can 'levitate' as the world's reserve is an interesting one
decimation: and the most obvious 'sovereign risk' for usg
pete_dushenski: how long is kinda interesting in the sense of "how much time does that give us to stockpile useable computing hardware"
pete_dushenski: other than that...
pete_dushenski: the writing's on the wall and people can't ignore it indefinitely

decimation: one obvious 'sword of Damocles' hanging over usg is the enormous dollar debt at very low interest

pete_dushenski: TheNewDeal: you are ?
TheNewDeal: yes
pete_dushenski: why ?
decimation: the best I can tell usian muggles exhibit 'learned helplessness' that moldbug writes about
TheNewDeal: because every muggle is basically in debt up to their necks
TheNewDeal: so basically it's something they should comprehend easily
TheNewDeal: except for the making monopoly money via treasuries
pete_dushenski: decimation: and why shouldn't they ? there's clearly no future for them, despite their panglossian pretenses of "first, best, largest ever"
decimation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Learned_helplessness
assbot: Learned helplessness - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ... ( http://bit.ly/1IIovHO )
decimation: "Other experiments were performed with different animals with similar results. In all cases, the strongest predictor of a depressive response was lack of control over the aversive stimulus."
pete_dushenski: TheNewDeal: but if muggles can afford the debt and "everyone else is doing it"... hardly seems like a problem worth the bother
decimation: if you randomly zap an animal long enough, he learns to lay down and be useless, even if he could prevent it with simple actions
pete_dushenski: until, of course, reality smokes them upside the head and gives 'em a spin.

jurov: mike_c: why? kako had some rumors
mike_c: i feel like i have a problem similar to theirs.. I've got a transaction engine running in c#, but websites built in python.

mike_c: I'm curious how they handle communication between those pieces
jurov: api goes straight to trade engine, i guess
mike_c: but you still must have a lot of data sharing. two software stacks that hit the same database? seems problematic to manage

BingoBoingo: Diameter is the one you can eyeball in profile view. Diameter 0.8x height.
BingoBoingo: circumfrence 0.8x height might not even qualify as planet sometimes.
thestringpuller: the real question BingoBoingo is why were you at the liquor store at 8:15ish in the morning?
ben_vulpes: orbital body
BingoBoingo: thestringpuller: Cheapest cigarettes in town
