ascii_modem: i.e. my pants arent capital
mircea_popescu: capital goods produce value. all there is to them.
mircea_popescu: pogo is not your pants.
mircea_popescu: as much as running your own server is controlling a capital good. not a very significant one, but that's a quantitative discussion
mircea_popescu: arguably intelligence is similarly of a capital good, and you have enough control of it to, for instance, contribute here. other people do not have this luxury - for instance because they agreed some employer owns it all.
mircea_popescu: so... no.
ascii_modem: sorta like gravity. yes, sufficiently far from solar system, anyone can become a 'stellar body' if you shove him out airlock

pete_dushenski: "Some analysts suggest total margin lending, both formal and informal, could add up to around 4 trillion yuan."
pete_dushenski: "The government is anxiously awaiting the market opening on Monday to see if the new measures will halt a 30 percent plunge in the last three weeks,"
mircea_popescu: no it won't.
pete_dushenski: not a fucking chance.
mircea_popescu: ten-twenty years of building tin towns for tin women are catching up with them
mircea_popescu: so much wastage hidden under the rug by the "communist party" that... well...
pete_dushenski: the graph of the shanghai index is pointier than madonna's tits.
williamdunne: The fact that they're having to do it, demonstrates the weakness of the markets and should surely inspire less confidence! Seems stoopid
mircea_popescu: curious if this sends the chinese on a "democratizing" kick to texas.
pete_dushenski: williamdunne: well, it IS stupid. also phree money for traders.
williamdunne: pete_dushenski: Stoopid is all over the shop
pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: what would that look like in your mind ?

mircea_popescu: kakobrekla how about you do this specifically : a) make assbot make an hourly report with prices and volumes for each traded commodity ; b) make assbot spot a line trade for each time trade in a commodity goes > 100 btc ; c) make assbot keep a wallet for every person in l2 ; d) allow me to order buys and sells on bit4x via assbot, just gives me a hash to unpack like rating works now.
mircea_popescu: and how about you do all this this week. i know i would trade on this system
mircea_popescu: and i bet you i would not be the only one.
williamdunne: I'd be an infrequent user
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski ah that. yes, like this always happens : chinese navy gets ordered to camp out between galveston and florida keys, us navy gets warned to stay the fuck out of their way. what are they going to do, fight ? the us is not fight worthy.
mircea_popescu: and next thing you know it chinese soldiers are on the ground looking to arrest obama to take him before miloshevich's tribunal
mircea_popescu: and to protect the citizens of baltimore from the criminal "federal government" with its long list of human rights abuses.
trinque: that recent chinese assessment of USian human rights was pretty lulzy

pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: two outcomes from u.s. citizen perspective : a) "all hail the chinese, our lords and saviours" leading into much cock sucking, or b) "git off our turf yellow niggers !" leading into much guerilla warfare a la afghanistan
trinque: gonna be B
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski dude gtfo, there is no b.
mircea_popescu: what b ?
pete_dushenski: kakobrekla: will look into it. thx !
trinque: I can see no way in hell the south would deal with a chinese occupation
mircea_popescu: they're currently welcoming the rights of transsexuals and the obsese. what b?
trinque: big country, still
pete_dushenski: ^
pete_dushenski: huge country
mircea_popescu: yeah, im sure there's gonna be some guerilla.
mircea_popescu: guess what ? there's some guerilla in the ukraine too.
mircea_popescu: who ever interviews them ?
trinque: oh yeah, not saying it'll *matter*
mircea_popescu: well ok then.
pete_dushenski: even 300 mn fat tards leaves, what, 30 mn fighters ?
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski you're off your rocker
mircea_popescu: there are not 100k people able to fight a war in the us currently.
pete_dushenski: so there's 80k, that's a lotta guerillas
mircea_popescu: war means, i fear i have to remind, spending the next 5 years without a woman eating your belt and shitting in a hole you dug yourself.
ben_vulpes: trinque: ain't gonna be b.
mircea_popescu: 80k is not a lot of mobsters.
mircea_popescu: what lot of guerilla.
trinque: ben_vulpes: you people never leave the cities, do you?
trinque: there are still rednecks with assloads of weaponry
trinque: whether they'll amount to anything, sure
trinque: but people will get shot
pete_dushenski: 80k suicide bombers ?
mircea_popescu: trinque dude, the gritted dissent of the peasantry was never a notable historical fact
mircea_popescu: which is why it was never recorded.
trinque: I just expect shitty times in between now and then, whenever then is
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski right. except atm those people whio would suicide bomb hate obama more than the chinese
mircea_popescu: because inept governance has managed to alienate all the people who matter to cater to the people who vote.
trinque: mircea_popescu: but they hate obama mostly because they're having the reaction to "strange" you've noted
pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: anyways, not like i'm defending the toughness of the americans, i'm just saying that b exists, not same as it being probable
trinque: not for any rational reason
trinque: he's just black and smiles too much
mircea_popescu: i very much doubt this.
ben_vulpes: trinque: the rednecks will be the reason china gets involved.
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: how so ?
ben_vulpes: texas needs either zetas or chinks to hold its border to the north.
ben_vulpes: and china's the only one of those two groups today with ships and ship-launched rockets with significant distance capabilities.
mircea_popescu: <trinque> I can see no way in hell the south would deal with a chinese occupation << they seem to be dealing with a northern occupation just fine.
BingoBoingo: I could see a mixture of A and B with the Chicoms tolerating B in the areas uneconomical to occupy.
mircea_popescu: quite exactly.
trinque: that's basically what I'm saying.
mircea_popescu: and if you wanna b-talk, go to the b-tard reservation
trinque: chaos everywhere that doesn't matter
mircea_popescu: just like the us works now, so it won't even be strange.
jurov: and i guess chicoms will be happy to leave all the desert to mexico
mircea_popescu: what, you think maryland's not chaos everywhere "that doesn't matter" ?
mircea_popescu: go walk the streets at night.
trinque: I've been, not hungry enough yet though
BingoBoingo: I mostly curious if the Chicoms farm Iowa or mine the uranium under Iowa
trinque: ^ this seems wishful to me
mircea_popescu: that's really the tension here : usians currently use the us like inept argentines: they huddle around the coast and pull their cocks.
trinque: russia is not gone though the soviet union dissolved
mircea_popescu: the chinese would farm the shit out of that thing, to the bare bedrock.
mircea_popescu: in general disputes over land utilization resolve in favour of the more intensive.
mircea_popescu: and so... is no doubt in my mind the chinese are getting the us.

ben_vulpes: i can see them either filling a power vacuum or backing an secession.
ben_vulpes: a*
trinque: ben_vulpes: now there's a theory that works a bit better imo
trinque: something like the US is doing now in western ukraine
mircea_popescu: (you may think "oh, wouldn't it be more logical to do africa first ?" and no, it wouldn't. africa's inhabited by monkeys currently, so it doesn't matter. same pattern played out in 1705 - napoleon went after europe not after the us. because in 1705 the us was africa)
ben_vulpes: same thing i said before, really.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> that's really the tension here : usians currently use the us like inept argentines: they huddle around the coast and pull their cocks. << Seriously big chunks or Arable land in Kansas went from farmed to feral in the past two decades.
mircea_popescu: i know.
trinque: ben_vulpes: far more plausible than china's going to land on the coast like normandy
mircea_popescu: fallow not feral. feral's about animls.
ben_vulpes: trinque: ah, i only meant to suggest that they might park an armada offshore to provide fire support.
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Commercially I think there will be fairly rapidly increasing Chinese investment in parts of Africa. Although that is a different matter.
mircea_popescu: williamdunne sure. and the us was built on european gold, look into the various panics culminating wit van buren
BingoBoingo: Oh, no. Completely feral. No one knows who the last title holder was on chunks of the place. I'm not talking unfarmed because it is out of the rotation. I'm talking retired from the being farmed business.
ben_vulpes: and with the work they're *doubtless* doing on autonomous flugenatoms that's going to be some impressive air support
mircea_popescu: but that's a diff story as you say
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes two things about chinese material research : a) american folk go "chinese have it so much better because their financing is secure" and b) they're spending about 10x more than the us

mircea_popescu: i am not upset in the slightest, tis history.
williamdunne: punkman: and the former are?
mircea_popescu: people gotta know why their ears are nailed to which board.
williamdunne: "The number of Romanians and Bulgarians working in the UK has risen by 15% year-on-year, Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures show. In the last three months of 2014 there were 172,000 people working in the UK who had been born in one of the two eastern European countries"
williamdunne: Can't be taking the piss that much
decimation: actually an enterprising young man from the uk ought to move to romania and start a factory
mircea_popescu: that'll go over well :D
punkman: williamdunne: the great unwashed, we don't care about those
williamdunne: punkman: A shorter name available?
mircea_popescu: williamdunne do those statistics distinguish romanians and gypsies ?
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: They say born in Romania, so yeah I guess it includes Romani born in RO
decimation: do pikeys count as gypies too?
mircea_popescu: gypsies are a migratory sort, they're not anymore romanian than austrian, french or british
mircea_popescu: decimation i think so.
jurov: they are no longer migratory
mircea_popescu: yeah, so said the sultan, cca 1400
williamdunne: decimation: Generally people don't differentiate between Romani and the Irish traveller sort - all come under the name 'gypsy' in the common tongue
mircea_popescu: williamdunne they're not really irish either lol. just called irish in england like they're called hungarian in some parts of romania
williamdunne: Just throw it into the stew, why not
decimation: it's interesting that they didn't really come to the us
williamdunne: decimation: I was lead to believe there was a growing "Irish" traveller population in the US
decimation: I've never seen one that was obvious
trinque: there are stinking punk kids that call themselves "travelers" here

mircea_popescu: actually gypsy culture would stand out like the second coming in the us
mircea_popescu: stuff like burning man etc stand for the peak of it there, but it's just about life 101 in gypsyland
jurov: l0l
mircea_popescu: anyway. actually genetic gypsy people don't drink well. this, they have in common with the hungarians. hence the entire thing in romania.

mircea_popescu: one of the rural inhabitants of a post-war italy that looks like 1300 ad is a shepherd. and he tells, the story of sherperding, specifically, that he talks to the stars
mircea_popescu: and sometimes wonders if the stars are real or the world is real.
mircea_popescu: this is in fact a big problem, and it was a major scientific advantage. in 3000 ad. five fucking thousand years ago.
mircea_popescu: obviously if you restart the process of 5k years ago with the means of 5k years ago you will get the comensurate results. this is a fact, because the processors still work, and in the same way.
