mircea_popescu: "The economic tyranny of the late Roman Empire had left a devastated polity, a culture in Western Europe that had lost its knowledge of civilized commercial practice and accustomed to seeing government not as a source of any productive assistance to commerce, but only a destroyer of commerce from which commerce must hide.

mircea_popescu: French housewives were using recipes to make, along with food, glue, ink, and so on, marble grains for an hour-glass:
mircea_popescu: "Take the grease which comes from the sawdust of marble when those great tombs of black marble be sawn, then boil it well in wine like a piece of meat and skim it, and then set it out to dry in the sun; and boil, skim and dry nine times; and thus it will be good."
mircea_popescu: Such a recipe presumably creates grains of a size in a precise ratio to a standard hour-glass neck size, thus producing an accurate time.”
mircea_popescu: dude what the everloving fuck is wrong with szabo.
mircea_popescu: he can't be this dumb.
mircea_popescu: "The origin of the sandglass is quite obscure, but its accuracy relies on a precise ratio between the neck width and the grain diameter."
asciilifeform: holy fuck
BingoBoingo: perhaps he went adlai, knows what color 42 is ☟︎
mircea_popescu: first off! the construction of that last phrase is wrong.
asciilifeform confesses that he did not read that far in

mircea_popescu: jesus look at that, so he IS aware piece rate exists.
mircea_popescu: this may be the most confused, anti-thought essay i've ever read.
mircea_popescu: "The undesirability of servitude, from the point of view of the laborer at least, is obvious. Serfs and slaves faced brutal work conditions, floggings, starvation, very short life spans, and the inability to escape no matter how bad conditions got. "
mircea_popescu: it's not fucking obvious. my slavegirls by a fat margin prefer slavery (which is not servitude just like whales are not fish), and work a lot better than any fucking employees anyone ever had.
asciilifeform: aha but they're gurlz

mircea_popescu: there are two kinds of fools in this world, the sort that thinks women are equal to men ; and the sort that thinks women are unequal to men in all things.
asciilifeform: wasn't it mircea_popescu who just recently posted a spiffy piece re: herd animals and what sex the meat processing plant uses to fill a herd ?

mircea_popescu: those herds do no work.
asciilifeform: they do in cn
asciilifeform: (and a few other 'meat + milk' systems)
mircea_popescu: Thus second main drawback to piece rates is that they motivate the worker to put out more quantity at the expense of quality. This can be devastating. The tendency of communist countries to pay piece rates, rather than hourly rates, is one reason that, while the Soviet bloc’s quantity (and thus the most straightforward measurements of economic growth) was able to keep up with the West, quality did not (thus the

Journalists kvell over stars like Swedish gamer Pewdiepie, whose net worth is around $12 million, or comedian Jenna Marbles, who’s worth around $2.5 million. On the other extreme, fan-funding
mircea_popescu: sites like Patreon (a Kickstarter-type site that allows for ongoing funding) are at the center of a communal movement to fund “smaller YouTubers.” But that definition gets blurry. Is someone with 50,000 subscribers worth supporting financially? How about 200,000? What if people assume you’re too successful to need money, and you’re too proud to tell them otherwise?"

nubbins`: but hey, it's not like you need my advice. you seem to have a good handle on advertising for all your ventures O.O
mircea_popescu: the bar for "self-aware adult who lives in the world" is so fuycking high i don't think i'm necessarily there.

nubbins`: but nowhere approaches talent recruitment with this level of retardation
mircea_popescu: "been to" is when you live there, with local women.
mircea_popescu: tourist bs dun count for shit.
nubbins`: but again, keep trying yr current approach
nubbins`: it'll eventually work
nubbins`: and if not, it's 100% because of everyone else ☟︎
mircea_popescu: heh.
nubbins`: not because taping a flyer to a wall is the shittest way of doing what you're trying to do
nubbins`: :D
mircea_popescu: looky, you don't get to misrepresent what you hear on the basis of how stupid the parts of it that you understood seemed to you.
nubbins`: you know mp is running out of patience when he gets to "looky" and "you don't get"
ascii_field: can we do stalin and fat before mircea_popescu forgets why ?
nubbins`: you don't get to pretend taping shit to a wall makes sense.
nubbins`: "the people will notice it's not the turd it seems"
nubbins`: uh huh
mircea_popescu: taping shit to a wall has a longer history than canada.
nubbins`: that's the qualifier now?
mircea_popescu: not that that particular stupidity is too well related to the other stupidities.
mircea_popescu: ascii_field sure. what about it ?
nubbins`: usa has a longer history than canada, see where that's got em

nubbins`: hey, that's the next best thing to actually claiming that yr approach to recruitment makes sense
nubbins`: remember when leah goodman chose dorian nakamoto because he was the only satoshi within driving distance?
mircea_popescu: there exist people in this world who are economically worthless because they are argentines. giving them an opportunity to starve so as to work for me, a guy that isn't economically worthless for being argentine, is a -ev play for most and a +ev play for some.
mircea_popescu: exactly the stalin approach.
ascii_field: nubbins`: where i live, posters on telephone poles are pretty much exclusively for classical scams (ponzi, 'sell house quick', 'work to save the earth!111', etc)
nubbins`: remember when you put up a bunch of flyers in b.a because it was the only city within driving distance?
mircea_popescu: "ethereum"
nubbins`: ascii_field mp doesn't realize this
ascii_field: items which even the fishwrap would not print
mircea_popescu: nubbins` ba is a city with more population than the whole country you live in omfg.
nubbins`: despite being worldly
ascii_field: but i do not think this is true in ba
nubbins`: mircea_popescu so..?
mircea_popescu: ascii_field whart do you mean not true in ba! all places are the same places! all peopel are really the same as nubbins!
mircea_popescu: EVERYTHING IS THE SAME!
nubbins`: i lived in seoul, 21mn people in metro area. know who's advertising on the poles?
ascii_field saw a great many things on placards in ba
mircea_popescu: sure makes thinking one "self aware of the world" a shithell of a heck easier.
nubbins`: strip clubs and diet pills
mircea_popescu: nubbins` seoul is a motherfucking rich place omfg.
nubbins`: lule
ascii_field: nubbins`: in ba, at least as far as my naked eye could see, it was mostly whores.
nubbins`: is it?
ascii_field: but (afaik) perfectly honest ones
mircea_popescu: i don't think you actually understand how poor these people are.

mircea_popescu: why the fuck does that make a difference ? "because all people are people" ?
nubbins`: it's a rich place like nyc is a rich place
nubbins`: you're struggling to string a point together here
mircea_popescu: the argument here isn't that some unrelated people are poor. the argument here is that the very fucking people in question don't have fifty pesos.
nubbins`: what are you saying, the talent exists in b.a?
ascii_field: 'The Bitcoin community had a huge opportunity to help shape ChangeTip into something beautiful to use to help bitcoin adoption forward, and largely has allowed negativity to consume this possibility.' << l0ltr0nic
mircea_popescu: nubbins` i am saying that if i rouded up all the 10k or so computer art majors in town and gave them the choice of paying me 100k in cash or dying in a fire
mircea_popescu: they couldn't get the 100k together.
nubbins`: and i am saying that you've gone the polar opposite of "rounding up all the 10k".
mircea_popescu: ...
nubbins`: you've rounded up all the 0.
mircea_popescu: and you know this because you feel things.
nubbins`: i know this because nobody bothered reading your ads
thestringpuller: don't think poor people are best adapted for working in 3DS Max/Maya given the time investment, plus the cost of the software.
mircea_popescu: "no, i know this because i can fit explanations ex post facto as well as alf used to can"
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller i don't want to work with people who pay "for software" in this sense anyway.
ascii_field: thestringpuller: 'cost of the software' ?!!!! ya trying to make me die of laugh ?
nubbins`: dat invention of hypotheticals as a retort
nubbins`: posting flyers in b.a is about as sensible as posting a wanted at on derpstalk forum
mircea_popescu: and you know this because...
nubbins`: for reasons which i cannot begin to fathom, you seem to not equate these two things
thestringpuller: oops meant cost of hardware to run said software*
nubbins`: mp you know the opposite because, what? some random chick tells you "yeah this is how people find work here"
nubbins`: thumbsup.svg
mircea_popescu: this is besides the point. i am not held to justify what i do to you.
nubbins`: no indeed, you're not.
mircea_popescu: you wish to judge what i do, you'd god damned better have some footing to stand on.
ascii_field digs in logz in mostly-futile search of what this whole thing was about
ascii_field: mircea_popescu was trying to hire a level designer ?
nubbins`: although since you've spent what, 20 minutes defending this foolishness
nubbins`: it seems you do feel some urge to justify what you've done
nubbins`: if for no other reason than to pull some strips of cloth over the naked lameness of it
nubbins`: ;/
mircea_popescu: mno. i just answer to random idiots derping on in here, because of a naive and perhaps misplaced notion that they'll learn something from the experience.
ascii_field may have learned something
nubbins`: well, the saying goes: "naive in one area means naive in no others"
nubbins`: you're prob right about the flyers thing
mircea_popescu: but i appreciate the "well since mom and dad filled the fridge clearly they have a responsibility to explai nto me why i should get a job".

thestringpuller: We all laugh at MIT until they create synths after the great war.
mircea_popescu: <nubbins`> i've got a friend who did some 3d modelling & textures for the Ender's Game movie << and the eulora splashscreen was done by jason juta (ie, the guy that did half the wizards of the coast franchise). and yes, i could employ him (at his very reasonable rates) to do the whole thing.
mircea_popescu: i won't. because i'm not spending money that way, and i don't give a shit what the needs of whatever art derp are.
mircea_popescu: he can starve to serve me and then i might consider him. before that he can get fucked.
mircea_popescu: i need him like i need more hair. he needs me like he needs more food.
ascii_field sometimes wonders if mircea_popescu does the 'nail in a coffin and float'em down the river as test of faith' thing also
mircea_popescu: and none of this is going to be changed by discussing around the bush.
mircea_popescu: ascii_field no, mircea_popescu simply does not give a shit.
ascii_field: well inspired by the 'starve to serve me' thing
ascii_field: but yeah, this whole thing is kinda replay of the old 'soviet vs roman army' thread, aha
mircea_popescu: <jurov> other than "busy" << mmmkay.
jurov: actually now i remember he did not like any responsibility, like, gpg signing the releases
mircea_popescu: <nubbins`> offer comments on why flyers are retarded if you dare << besides the fucking point, really. i don't think they're not retarded. nevertheless, to the people who fail to take advantage of this, that failure is just another added failure.
mircea_popescu: i understand "we"'d "all" love to be excused from the failures list, but that's not how it works.
ascii_field also recalls the rental agency with btc private keys on placards thread
mircea_popescu: jurov> anyway. since bsas is million metropol, there surely are some "coworking" places where exactly such art derps usually concetrate <<< yes but apparently they go in there thought the window not the door ; cant read in any case and anyway - too busy doing nothing to do soemthing useful
mircea_popescu: particularly because how dares this asshole to discern between useful and useless in the vast world full of possibilities which shouldn't be discriminated against or someshit.
mircea_popescu: <ascii_field> perhaps they have a trade publication where work is offered <<< you're thinking europe. think kirgizstan.
ascii_field thinks kirgizstan
mircea_popescu: <ascii_field> but i'll be the first to say that i have certifiably nfi how programmerz find work in b-a! << you mean webwork. what else ?
ascii_field: and mircea_popescu still wonders how come i haven't moved ?
mircea_popescu: <jurov> meeting them in flesh should overcome their problems with unusuallness or whatevs << not from experience. meeting idiots in the flesh doesn't make them less idiotic, just puts them in a better position to waste your time.
ascii_field: ^^
jurov: well. so you want artist that is both not an idiot and reads pole pulp
jurov: gl
mircea_popescu: ascii_field again : i expect that all arguments work both sides for me and for me only. you, you don't need meatwot can go wherever. the argentine derp, can not use internet, may not leave country.
mircea_popescu: not the other way around.
mircea_popescu: jurov i don't want anything.
mircea_popescu: this isn't about me selling. this is about me buying.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: possibly the hidden gotcha is that internet hasn't been invented yet on my planet. (i.e. folks offering the sort of work that i do, demand at least occasional physical chair parade)
mircea_popescu: possibly.
ascii_field: i could speculate re: ~why~ (short version: it's what usa has instead of a berlin wall - otherwise mass exodus of programmers etc. to cheapo banana republics)
mircea_popescu: maybe.
ascii_field: (another tricky bit is that one of the things employers pay folks for is ~not working for competitor~ and this is difficult to monitor without on-site chair)
mircea_popescu: quite.
mircea_popescu: this is probably a major factor, really.
ascii_field has been pondering subj for many years
ascii_field: but the most basic thing, afaik, is simple capital control
mircea_popescu: <ascii_field> shinohai: afaik the old corpse is just that - mit is the new phoundation <<< seems that way.
ascii_field: (omfg they might take their bezzle dollars and bid up the cost of turkeys in shitholistan where we need'em cheap)
ascii_field: the cheapness of turkeys/whores/petro/etc in shitholistans is a ~natural resource~, like any other thermodynamic gradient. and you don't get to ride the gradient just by asking, just like a random schmuck doesn't get to ride soviet plutonium just for asking.
mircea_popescu: anyway, to the more general point here : i'm the only entity that can't be held hostage. "oh, we won't do X until you Y" works when I say it at others, not when others try it on me. you can't say "hey mp, you gotta do it like this", because the point isn't for me to get something done, the point is for me to change the way things are done in the first place. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: ascii_field quite.
ascii_field: which is why i say 'mircea_popescu wake me up plz when you've transmuted the x to a y'
mircea_popescu: which is why you gotta move. always go against the gradients/.
mircea_popescu: ascii_field by the time that's done, my dear alf, everyone who's still asleep ain't never waking up again. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: that much you can take to the wallet.
ascii_field: well i'd happily move if i were 1337 enough to take the gradient, rather than BE the fuel ☟︎
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: that part makes sense.
mircea_popescu: it's also annoying.

mircea_popescu: ascii_field the difference between "not work for competition" and "capital control" is inexistent - the us is a centrally controlled economy just like the su. and so, the soviets couldn't leave because "the state invested in their education", right ?

ascii_field: (or, in other words, what precisely is it that said system could not afford to lose ?)
mircea_popescu: every time i talk to one of my chinese bankers here, moving some dollar bits against peso bits, both the argentine government and the us government bleed a little.
mircea_popescu: every time you leave the us, and continue to extract dollars from the us which however the usg can't tax, and spend them in kirgiztan, but so the kirgiztan also cant' tax, both bleed a little.
mircea_popescu: every time you take a 19yo that'd have made someone a great wife and you make her a great whore, the system bleeds a little.
ascii_field: eh there remain many megatonnes of fat to be trimmed from plebes like asciilifeform , ben_vulpes , et al before the usg ruling caste bleeds
mircea_popescu: the more you live, the less life's left for them.
mircea_popescu: so go, live.
mircea_popescu: the rest doesn't really matter.
mircea_popescu: everytime some derp is "offended" at who knows what offensiveness yet his offense rings impotent, the system dies a little.
ascii_field: this looks quite like folks who explained their gold/watches/dollars bootleg ops in moscow as 'help sink the stinking su faster !111'
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: exactly what it was.
ascii_field not convinced that the gnats killed the elephant
mircea_popescu: every shot policeman, every dollar embezzled, witheld from the irs, every subpar item delivered to the usg, everything.
mircea_popescu: they all add together and then one day, suddenly, the "old way of life" is an impossibility.
mircea_popescu: and nobody knows which gnats killed the elephant. "it was just meant to be".
mircea_popescu: historical imperative, as they say.
ascii_field cannot deny that sufficiently many straws will break camel's back. but this might take a while.
mircea_popescu: for as long as you're part of the solution, it taking a while is no detriment.
mircea_popescu: this is in fact how you know that you're part of the solution.
ascii_field: meanwhile, at the l0lfactory,
ascii_field: 'Which makes me suspicious, and I have no evidence, just an opinion that there seems to be a powerful force behind these guys like btcdrak, petertodd, etc., like perhaps that jdillon guy, who seems to be directing their actions. If you read some old leaks of jdillon chat with ptodd you can see that all/most of the stuff they are now publicly pushing were suggested by him, including the flexicap nonsense which gmax tried
ascii_field: to suggest in the 2nd [censored] conference.'
ascii_field: oh, unrelatedly,
ascii_field: 'A C++ module that generates maps procedurally is required for Eulora. In this first iteration, the idea of a "map" reduces to "a folded corridor 3 x 3 units in square section".

I subscribe to rateme, amisexy, uglyduckling, MUA, prettygirls, and so many more just to see how attractive some girls are and how they're treated by men. Seeing their perfect faces weirdly makes me feel more at peace with the world- like I know my place."
mircea_popescu: wonder how many of the people there are kids having fun.
BingoBoingo: hard to say

mircea_popescu: so this okcupid thing has a thing where you answer premade questions (apparently there was a feature to add questions but they scuttled it silently, over time). leaving aside the questions are almost universally fucking dumb,
mircea_popescu: it's lead me to discover that i really don't give a shit. you gotta specify what "answers you'll accept" and 90% i'm like... whatever.
mircea_popescu: who the fuck cares what people think already.
mircea_popescu: then the site bitches about how getting whatever as an answer doesn't help it select matches. what the fuck am i to do ?! care ?!
BingoBoingo: The site bitches about everything. It's an IAC property. It's what they do.
