punkman: Buterin doesn't get to keep 44k btc
asciilifeform: got private key ? could keep if he likes.
asciilifeform: or what, coke machine ?
punkman: he must spent it on stupid shit
asciilifeform: 'must' how ?
asciilifeform: could move it to a fresh addr and vanish tomorrow.
asciilifeform: like the others.
punkman: he already had a chance to do that
punkman: or maybe never had the keys
asciilifeform: or.
asciilifeform: it's a very convenient rationalization
asciilifeform: when an idiot has xxxxx btc, 'oh but he couldn't possibly have the keyz'
asciilifeform: why the everliving fuck not.
asciilifeform: and SOMEBODY has the keys.
asciilifeform: what now, all of these 'somebodies' are gurus worthy of submission and imitation ?
punkman: somebody has, and they will spend it on eth "development", "conferences", etc
asciilifeform: ergo not so smart.
punkman: whoever keeps it, is smart
BingoBoingo: Carl Mark Force Model IV has the keys
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: iirc the moron sold it all

BingoBoingo: There's more of that idiot's production
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but this is the problem of the bloody book. in "removing the requirement for a wot" it creates more problems than it resolves
mircea_popescu: admitting it resolves any.
asciilifeform: how does it remove ?
mircea_popescu: and NO, idiots are not able to propagate anything without the printing press. which is why prior to it there were 5000 different idiocies summing to 0 and ever since tyhen we've been deluged in organised imbecillity.
asciilifeform: tora/koran/et al worked fine without press.
mircea_popescu: and yes, stupidity is a technology like any other.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'm approximately as interested in inhabiting a world without landau as you are in inhabiting world without cunt.
mircea_popescu: so keep it.
asciilifeform: that's kinda what the thread was about
asciilifeform: but then we get 'but it isn't in the logz, ergo useless'

mircea_popescu: "make this one go faster then!"
mircea_popescu: "put its ballsac on the anvil"

mircea_popescu: "put ballsac on anvil." ☟︎

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, the thread was about you saying how nobody should have to reprocess books ; and i made the point that but for the historical accident, one wouldn't even have to process them in the first place.

asciilifeform observed an interesting effect. have two very similar pairs of cheapo headphones, but one emits strange scratchy sounds, other does not. then realized that it is the ~insulation on the cord~ that was at fault
asciilifeform: one set had cloth fiber, to 'look retro' presumably
asciilifeform: and it scratched on shirt, chair, etc. and vibration - propagates
asciilifeform: the other, with the more ordinary smooth insulation does no such thing.
punkman: sounds like the wire is damaged, not the insulation
asciilifeform: brand new.

ascii_field: without a trace
jurov: as children we were playing toy casino, and when the chips ran out we invented that we issue new ones,
pete_dushenski: !up thestringpuller
jurov: but to avoid inflation, we always got a negative and positive paper with the same value together
mircea_popescu: they gotta pull stories multiple times a day each day by now huh ?
jurov: but each could be played independently
jurov: we had endless fun with it
mircea_popescu: the whole libtard charade literally busting at seams.
thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: dunno if in logs but is there gonna be an MPOE statement this month?
jurov: seems we invented fed
mircea_popescu: jurov aha.
analmaster: they do
analmaster: they redact things without even saying they are redacting things
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller next month, that and mpif.
analmaster: like there will be no trace of anything on the internets
thestringpuller: k.
mircea_popescu: analmaster and tghere isn't , becausw really, who gives a shit what the agitprop machine "says".
ascii_field: 'doubleplus ungood, refs unpersons'
mircea_popescu: i don't read them anyway.
analmaster: i cant wait to send my children to a nice school like this one
analmaster: mircea_popescu: where do i go to live to escape this amerikkka

ascii_field: at my uni we had two separate incidents, complete with organized mooing, 'candlelight vigils', protest marches, etc. of 'nooses found' (noose is supposed to be a symbol of impending lynching, yes...) - one turned out to be a popped balloon's string on a tree, the other - was never seen by any witness save the instigator of the hysteria
mircea_popescu: you wanna tell me an entire campus never does erotic asphyxiation ?

mircea_popescu has a pre-made noose in this very house! nice thick rope too.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: on a tree ?
mircea_popescu: so they got drunk and threw it out the window.
mircea_popescu has observed dildo and paraphenalia rain out of window on campus b4.

pete_dushenski: "Last December, when Rolling Stone’s account of a brutal gang rape at the University of Virginia began to unravel, some commentators argued that we should nevertheless take claims of sexual assault at face value, on the grounds that statistically, they are very likely true. “I choose to believe Jackie,” Jessica Valenti wrote in The Guardian. “I lose nothing by doing so, even if I’m later proven wrong.
pete_dushenski: ” In The Washington Post, Zerlina Maxwell argued: “We should believe, as a matter of default, what an accuser says. Ultimately, the costs of wrongly disbelieving a survivor far outweigh the costs of calling someone a rapist.”"

jurov: and alf even less

kakobrekla: get synced hourly
phf: kakobrekla: is the first column, the #id ?
kakobrekla: yeah
trinque: nice.
trinque: what's a reasonable deeding interval, weekly?
kakobrekla: well are you going to keep weekly 100mb+ copies of log saved somewhere?
mircea_popescu: except claims of "Sexual assault" made by a native english speaker are very likely false.
trinque: kakobrekla: I could diff them on my end, or you could chunk them on yours
kakobrekla: i guess you could compress em as well
mircea_popescu: i would expect less than 1% odds of them ACTUALLY being sexual assault, and perhaps as little as 5-10% of them being some sort of contravention.
mircea_popescu: so, no.
kakobrekla: well i asked before if you want it chunked or not and the answer was not
trinque: did I say that?
kakobrekla: mp did!
kakobrekla: blame him
mircea_popescu: <pete_dushenski> less show-offy, more 'vertical' social life << jurov you are fucking crazy if you imagine the thirld worlders are BETTER at being real. they all got tvs over here. every god forsaken favela in brazil, salta, what have you has a tv. no fridge, but tv.
mircea_popescu: so no, they're even more wanna-be than you'd expect.
jurov: what?
mircea_popescu: wasn't that your idea ? that in fabled south america people didn't actually invent the telenovela ?
trinque: kakobrekla: in either case, once we settle on what gets deeded, I'm happy to rig up the cron and make it happen
kakobrekla: if you need it chunked ill chunk
mircea_popescu: that's prolly better so as not to bw.
kakobrekla: bw?
mircea_popescu: bandwidth
jurov: point taken, even the remnants of nobility in rural argentina don't have vertical social anymore
mircea_popescu: you know, 100mb every day ? what is this, the blockcain ?
kakobrekla: but daily chunks isnt most practical
mircea_popescu: why not ? could just make directory structure like trilema does it, by year/month/eachday.txt
mircea_popescu: no good ?
mircea_popescu: i suppose actually the eachday.txt is the log already.
kakobrekla: aha
phf: yyyy-mm-dd.txt
mircea_popescu: maybe just make each month ?
mircea_popescu: phf no because after 60 years it will break bfrs :D
mircea_popescu: jurov thinking about it, the non-people's desire to not-exist is pungent. palpable. yet they keep getting their ways out denied, "oh, war is bad", "oh, suicide is the wrong answer" or blablabla. can't even lick lead paint anymore, can't ride without helmets, honestly we deserve everything we get for stubbornly keeping the dead alive against nature and its own fucking wishes.
phf: in 60 years will be using "f", a fits in head filesystem implementation by ascii, that can store terabytes of data, but technically indistinguishable from tape archive
mircea_popescu: i still haven't figured out if he loves immutable (ie, tar) or else volatile (ie, party bits).
phf: <asciilifeform> speaking of tape, i've always lamented that no one sells a reel-to-reel for modern pc
mircea_popescu: aha.

ascii_field: rumour being, apparently, that the somewhat odd move of kicking out reporters is explained by there having been present 'komyoooonity organizers' from ferguson et al
analmaster: whoa
analmaster: rofl
analmaster: how is that a job
mircea_popescu: ascii_field the move of kicking out the media is not odd in the slightest.
ascii_field: odd for 'protest'
mircea_popescu: odd for dumbprotest ?
ascii_field: for the trad american sort aha
mircea_popescu: ima just quote tlp, because he has a very nice distillation of the problem :
mircea_popescu: If you hold a protest and you aren't throwing rocks it will fail. I'm not telling you to throw rocks, I'm explaining why your march won't work. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: The reason "peaceful protests" don't work anymore is because now the protests are slower than the media coverage. When they threw the tea in Boston Harbor it was urgent, immediate, and by the time the press could interpret it it had already been digested by the public. But now even before the protest reaches critical mass the media, whose agents outnumber the protestors 100 to 1, has packaged and produced it, like
mircea_popescu: a reality show, and by the time Naomi Klein got there I had already been told to expect someone like her. Do you see? She had already appeared before she got there. Yes, I can take pride in thinking for myself but if I'm going to be honest, all I'm doing is reacting to what I'm told
mircea_popescu: the rules for successful are very simple : a) throw rocks ; b) no media.
mircea_popescu: obviously you can't make "the media" aka usg agitprop machine unhave all the vans and ex-sorority chicks and whatnot. so the only practical solution when you can't prevent them acting on their options is to limit their options to one. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: throw rocks at the media, force them to pick the "evil people" narrative.
ascii_field: usg is on both sides of this chessboard
mircea_popescu: like soviet union was on both sides of THAT chessboard.
mircea_popescu: yes, they're all soviets. slightly hungry pissed off low level grunt soviets vs fatcat libertard soviets.
mircea_popescu: this happens to be good for bitcoin is all.
analmaster: soviet libtards exist?
analmaster: i thought they just throw them off the cliff
ascii_field: analmaster is posting from 1978
mircea_popescu: ascii_field understand : if the "huge hedge fund masquerading as church" engine gripes, the democrat party will have to be restructured.
mircea_popescu: and because of the communication problem (see http://trilema.com/2014/the-problem-of-ideal-social-systems-reprint/ ) they won't be able to do it smoothly.
