asciilifeform: incidentally, how come mircea_popescu dislikes 'ndranghetta ? it's orcs doing healthy virile orc stuff, no ?
asciilifeform: certainly no 'pencildick' academics there..
mircea_popescu: i don't dislike IT.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, a streetwalker is a streetwalker whether she fucks bums or healthy virile orcs.
asciilifeform: hm?
mircea_popescu: in this case, the usg took it in the ass. and the problem with whoredom is that oyu NEVER get to charge more than the least you ever charged.
mircea_popescu: consequently...
mircea_popescu: that "careful about what they don't tell you when they give you those papers to sign" cuts both ways. what the calabrese didn't tell the feds when they gave the feds those papers to sign was
asciilifeform: how does this differ from when 'scientology' infiltrated fbi and burned all files pertaining to itself (1980s) ?
mircea_popescu: that now the feds are somewhere between uganda and ethiopia as far as legal power is concerned.
mircea_popescu: why does it have to differ ?
asciilifeform: afaik it doesn't differ.
mircea_popescu: aite.
asciilifeform: but pointing out that this kind of thing is old news.
mircea_popescu: the concept of "old news" is not defined in this space.
asciilifeform: and that it only pertains to the crust of usg, not the molten iron core.
mircea_popescu: i've not even read that last line, for the record.
asciilifeform: l0l
mircea_popescu: sorry, what am i to do. you're a pretty reasonable chap with the nutty habit of spitting out 5/0=0!!1 5/0 = 0!!! at intervals.
mircea_popescu: i put a filter in, brings you straight back to humanity.
mircea_popescu: thanks god it's that simple.
asciilifeform: if you can find me how aes leaks key bits, or the spec document for 'Joseki' cipher, i'll wake up permanently.

mircea_popescu: too bad it doesn't work like that.

asciilifeform: my point was that the available evidence (i can name 1,01+ tantalizing s33kr1ts That Make A Difference) that ~never~ have leaked and are guarded by - apparently - incorruptible aryan ss core.
mircea_popescu: nonsense.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not that one either.
asciilifeform: this is a quasi-mythical speech that was never made public.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 117150 @ 0.0005707 = 66.8575 BTC [+] {3}
mircea_popescu: they're guarded by asciilifeform's unknown sons in a mausoleum on buyan, along with asciilifeform's own handmade copy of the dead sea manuscripts and still shots from his days as a fireman/pornstar.
asciilifeform falls down
mircea_popescu: the continued secrecy involving all this proves in order that asciilifeform has sons, that buyan is a place and that he used to take it in the ass with the firehose.
asciilifeform tries, futilely, to extract firehose
mircea_popescu: other things that haven't been found include the electronic raisin nuclear cheesecake, and generally speaking all manner and definitions of unknown things as defined by the people not knowing them. because FUCKING NECESSARILY!
asciilifeform: note that i did not say 'the pill for rsa' but a specific archival document that is referred to in 10,001 places in the open usg literature
asciilifeform: but has never been leaked.
asciilifeform: 'implementation of Joseki'
mircea_popescu: right.
asciilifeform: (go players don't panic, nothing to do with the game)
mircea_popescu: o when is that thing ?
mircea_popescu: next month ?
asciilifeform: aha.
asciilifeform: another example: official 'tempest' test specs.
asciilifeform: (this is also a named document, and 10,001+ copies exist, every maker of electronic junk for usg has it, but it has never been made public afaik)
asciilifeform: or the magic codez for the intel amt thing (or what, you think the nsa core is decorative ?! buyan?!)
asciilifeform: or, or.
mircea_popescu: how does this relate to the legal impotence of the usg henceforth is unclear, but w/e.
asciilifeform: doesn't.
asciilifeform: relates to the ~core~ vs ~crust~
mircea_popescu: it's merely a question of incompetence, not of will.
asciilifeform: wai wut how?
mircea_popescu: you're roughly in the position of an inept anatomist who, from his failure to obtain answers to the questions that interest him through dissection, decides the dead animal on the table is still alive,
mircea_popescu: and is actively keeping secrets from him.
asciilifeform: he isn't even wrong, the bacteria ~are~ helping to 'keep the secrets' by eating the meat
asciilifeform: which is, in an important way, still alive.
mircea_popescu: he is wrong in that he, much like a child / animist, allocates his failure to outside intent.
BingoBoingo: Just because cadeaver does not live does not mean it lacks life.
mircea_popescu: this is a 3 yo thing.
asciilifeform: if it were a fully static object, like a pile of bricks, anatomist's job would be unquestionably easier
mircea_popescu: very much besides the point.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu is of course free do define my questions, such as 'do they have the rsa pill', as uninteresting. but i find this position too martian to fully grasp with my puny earthling brain.
mircea_popescu: they do not have the "rsa pill". the block ciphers however as currently implemented are next to useless.
asciilifeform: 'block cipher' was a pixie dust creation from day 1. relic from pre-scientific age of cryptoastrology. i think we had this thread..
mircea_popescu: mk.
asciilifeform: speaking of, any more curios in the block cipher mail ?
mircea_popescu: nothing.
mircea_popescu: idiot cloud moved on to whatever it is they do, probably something to do wit hgo now.
asciilifeform: the more i look, the more clear to me that crypto is this radioactive wasteland where even birds no longer sing
mircea_popescu: funny how little actually interests these people, they can so fluently become fascinated by random things.
mircea_popescu: birds sing, yes, but they are cicadas.

mircea_popescu: this kid is not a peasant, anymore than a random engineer is redditard.
mircea_popescu: this kid is the aspirational "staff propagandist of the Manturovsk District of the Young Communist League in the Kursk Region"
asciilifeform: there ~was~ 'reddit' running around in 1918. people who ~actually~ thought that nobody needs engineers, any idiot can design a pile of bricks, nobody needs army officer, money, etc.
asciilifeform: they were slaughtered.
mircea_popescu: THIS kid is it.
asciilifeform: which was a very reasonable thing to do

mircea_popescu: should be interesting to see what the 2nd does.

asciilifeform: i watched with my own eyes groups of 'national student leadership' whateverthefuck marching to audience with obama's reichsminister of whatever (or possibly the fuhrer himself)
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: this kind of thing is part of the daily rhythm around here and is unremarkable.
mircea_popescu: it's also novel.
asciilifeform: how novel? 20th c. sop.
mircea_popescu: to the degree the 1936 bs was novel, of course. from close enough and with enough myopia, it is "sop".
asciilifeform: in that sense yes.
asciilifeform: it is a specifically 20th c. plague.
asciilifeform: mr mold, even, wrote 'i wish only to live to see the 20th c. end' and he meant this specifically.
