phf: ben_vulpes: you call that thing like void foo(args) { IMPLEMENT_RANDOMIZE_STACK(foo(args)); ...}, static makes nLoops shared, so the logic is, you set it to some random value between 1 and 21 and then recurse down that many times, "randomizing" the stack

ben_vulpes: so this gathering nausea in the pit of my stomach when i read through implement_randomize_stack is perhaps an intuitive clue

phf: they randomize all the stacks that are exposed to the network

mircea_popescu: nevertheless, the people are idiots on an african level, and on the whole on their own strength on the open market not worth the price of a decent burial.
mircea_popescu: this, from what i hear, should be no change from the fillipines.
copypaste: i want to renounce my passport before the USG goes under because such event, which i think will happen in my lifetime, will make me stateless
copypaste: but you can't renounce your US citizenship before acquiring another one
mircea_popescu: so then it's perfect for you.
copypaste: the USG is already so bankrupt that it stopped adding passport pages, you have to pay them for a whole new passport

asciilifeform: he can probably get a nuke for a couple grand.
asciilifeform: but can a human ?
copypaste: haha, indeed
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform for the record, you're talking to a guy with an actual record of up-and-getting-out
copypaste: the requirement on the books for an Argentine passport is 2 years residency
copypaste: quite a low residency requirement, copared to other countries
mircea_popescu: you should prolly spend more time asking questions than sprouting sententiousness.
asciilifeform: copypaste: yeah that's what i thought
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that was a question. can ~i~ walk in with a few $k and get it.
mircea_popescu: yes.
asciilifeform: like buying milk.
copypaste: compared to Philippines, where the requirement is 10; unless you get married (Philippines has no divorce, only country other than Vatican City with no divorce laws on the books, or even in Congress)
mircea_popescu: no, not like buying milk.
copypaste: if you're married the requirement is 5
mircea_popescu: copypaste argentina has no abortion.
copypaste: neither does Philippines
copypaste: no abortion or divorce :D
mircea_popescu: fortunately uruguay is right there.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: aha! you said 'not like buying milk'
asciilifeform: this means peopleskillz, no??11
mircea_popescu: were you fishing for a nail to hang your explanation on ?
mircea_popescu: no dude. it means hiring a lawyer.
asciilifeform: ah ok
mircea_popescu: you don't buy new teeth like buying milk, either.
mircea_popescu: gotta hire a dentist.
copypaste: now this is true

copypaste: even if they are infants
copypaste: otherwise, they cannot come with you
asciilifeform: in usa passport is a travel document
copypaste: sure
asciilifeform: in su - was identifying document that, with some extra verbiage stamped on, doubled as travel passport
copypaste: actually, once i got mine i started using it as an identification document, which would lead to weird looks
copypaste: due to the main ID document in USA being a driver's license
copypaste: but due to my disability, i do not drive
copypaste: you can get a "non drivers driver license" (real name), but the line was so long and i already had a passport
asciilifeform: folks who do not drive in usa typically get issued peculiar non-driving driver's license
asciilifeform: (yes)
asciilifeform: it is stamped 'not valid for driving' or the like
copypaste: yes, i happened to have recieved the passport before the other one
copypaste: so i just never got the other one
copypaste: since the passport sufficed, even at banks
copypaste: i haven't been in the USA since 2014 though
asciilifeform: phun phakt, most folks in usaschwitz have no passport.
asciilifeform: they don't need it.
asciilifeform: (where to go? and why?)

asciilifeform: to do what ?
copypaste: i got mine to meet an online friend i'd had since i was a small child

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo he's still recovering from the castrating influence of bad parenting, doesn't quite feel at ease rubbing loser's nose in their own shit.

mircea_popescu: for all you know chicks will read it and fill your inbox with written tits.
mircea_popescu: happened to me.
BingoBoingo: adlai: But shitting in your own garden is actually beneficial. The plants like it.
BingoBoingo: adlai: Anyways wouldn't writing a simple CL blogotron for your own use be a welcome sanity break from the scalplsd
adlai: in other phamily-related news, my lispm arbitrage has failed, due to usg-sponsor eagerness to sponsor as much as possible... but therein lies the arb, and anybody who does sponsor usg (or have family who do) is welcome and encouraged to pursue this further
adlai: in case the signal was too noisy right there: buying a working lisp machine, and donating it to a museum (of which there are several in the DC area), will get you a nice tax break
adlai: ofc you (or the other end of your arbitrage) need to already be paying usg taxes, but there are a bunch of people who do
mircea_popescu: kinda how all museums were built.
kakobrekla: i dont really see the point in the 'working' part
kakobrekla: it not like they will be turning it on and it will stop working over time with noone to fix it around
adlai: BingoBoingo: cl blogotrons exist, these days my blog-time is spent 'auditing' coleslaw vs hyde. scalpl, otoh, is pretty much one of a kind; cf ascii_butugychag on professional vs plebescite tooling...
mircea_popescu: he has a point.
adlai: mircea_popescu lacks an unambiguous antecedent
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla
ascii_butugychag: adlai: this is a sad joke, the machine's value is more or less ENTIRELY in the fact that it WORKS
adlai: so break it on the way over, i don't care! but all else aside, it's more educational to the budding usg-arsonist if they can play with a working doodad
ascii_butugychag: non-working but identically-appearing boxes are much cheaper
ascii_butugychag: and more common.
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag from his pov, the value of the machine is entirely in "what you paidf for it"
adlai: ... and what ascii_butugychag just said.

adlai: mircea_popescu: you do need to get the museum to agree that your donation was worth anything
ascii_butugychag: and 'what i paid for it' is almost NOTHING
ascii_butugychag: so fuck that.
adlai failed his arbitrage on this basis - usg-sponsor doesn't want to engage museum(s) in negotiation, but maybe $alertLurker does
mircea_popescu: adlai notrly. as long as they take it, it's not their job to value it for fiscality.
adlai: you have to get a receipt (/me is not enough of a taxpayer to get the exact word right, maybe it's something else?) attesting to the value of your donation

adlai: all you need is somebody to drive the thing to a museum and negotiate a little
adlai: (not necessarily in that order)
mircea_popescu: the museum doesn't issue the fucking receipt lol. whoever you buy it from does.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> the museum doesn't issue the fucking receipt lol. whoever you buy it from does. << Actually in USia receipts are given by museums/charities for donations
mircea_popescu: yes. on the basis of the provenance documents.
mircea_popescu: "this vase so and so was donated to us by x who bought it at an auction held by sootheby's valuying it at 4mn".
BingoBoingo: With discrepancy between seller and charity receipts grounds for IRSape
ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu is correct. otherwise you could set up faux 'museum' and 'donate' junk 'worth' millions.
ascii_butugychag: and just about any serious deviation from your social stature in the spirit of 'peasant doesn't get to own a rembrandt, wtf' will attract auditors very, very quickly in usa.
ascii_butugychag: usg knows very well who has any business writing off serious sums and who does not.

mircea_popescu: adlai let me put it this way : s.nsa (which according to some doesn't even exist) just threw away ~5 btc over a delivery bet it didn't even HAVE to make. and i forgbot all about it until pete_d said something.
mircea_popescu: the death of the middle, eh.
adlai: the beautiful thing about the btcfiat market is that it means different things for different people
adlai has paid well over current market price for btc... what if those are the btc that ascii would've got?
mircea_popescu: and i'm not even going to pester alf about making another one for 2016 expiry. truth be told i'm rather pleasantly impressed with how s.nsa work is coming along of late.

mircea_popescu: i mean i can't justify paying a few grand for one on the grounds of the two cups a year i drink, but you're paying more for the tea as it is.

mircea_popescu: afaik samovars were in fact used at the table. iirc even in the us you can get smokeless charcoal delivered
phf: hmm, that's actually worth a try. you still need to heat up the teapot though, so it goes on top of samovar, which means that whatever you burn is going to change the flavor of tea
phf: so fully depends on how smokeless that charcoal actually is, and those that i saw used for grilling tend to produce a nasty chemical miasma
mircea_popescu: of course the us is pretty huge on the whole bbq thing. i can attest i had charcoal-made pulled pork and other such stuff and was wunderbar.

phf: can usually spot an eastern european or an american nature freak by how orderly their setup is. "this is where i cook my morning egg, just like i've been doing for the past 30 years"

mircea_popescu: by now a clearer idea of this particular contemporary stupidity of the uneducated but bright young folk is starting to structure itself in my head, and ima call it bayesian.
phf: eliade's "yoga immortality and freedom" is still best exposition
mircea_popescu: it has a lot to do with the sad situation where "everything not encountered before is surprising" - which is, incidentally, just another way to say "i'm stupid".
mircea_popescu: it also has a lot to do with an implicit presumption that the world is comprehensible in a very mechanicist way.
phf: !up Chesterly
mircea_popescu: he for instance reaches for phenomenology (what happened!!!) when nothing on the ground warrants a phenomenological explanation.

phf: hmm, bayesian thinking is sort of like if you walk looking at the ground and all you see are tiny twigs and then gradually all you see are tiny rocks and you don't have an ability to pull away and notice that you were walking through forest first and then you're at a base of a mountain. it sometimes "works", becase you've been taught that the two classifications exist so you call first forest and the second mountain, but of course
phf: you've not ~seen~ either. you come across rocky patch in the forest and call it mountain, you call wood chipper pile forest, etc.
