mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that's nonsense. mircea_popescu is a matter of substance, not form. what oyu call full bore is merely an aggregate of stylistic choices i prefer [and i prefer them enough to put above the needs of others, because i simply don't care enough about unknown others], but otherwise it has an infinity of formal homomorphisms, and necessarily an infinity of those could match any arbitrary formal test.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: then consider applying your methods..?
asciilifeform: that particular list is quite popular among thinking folk.
mircea_popescu: the only problem is that even if you put the effort into bowdlerization, you will not obtain a result better than i do ; because the "formal test" is actually devoid of substance.
asciilifeform: some of whom prolly ought to be here.
mircea_popescu: no, it is not. it is popular among a certain brand of castrato. i don't appreciate castrato opera.

mircea_popescu: here : http://qntra.net/2016/05/phuctor-factors-united-states-disa-key/#comment-56733
asciilifeform: i'm still at a loss how to properly separate this concept from full-bore solipsism.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform let us study this problem together, working on the basis of a 419/russian bride scam.
mircea_popescu: you know what that is ?
asciilifeform: approximately
mircea_popescu: so let's delve.
mircea_popescu: the 419 scam is a particular arbitrage of the knowledge problem. the way it works is that money in modern society consists of a substance and a form. its substance is hinted at by the "aml/kyc" bs, which is a whole other pile of lulz we won't be getting into here. you prefer to refer to it as "X couldn't own rembrandts" internally.
mircea_popescu: the form of money is obvious, in the sense of the taste of food being obvious. it produces expected reactions in the senses.
mircea_popescu: the way the scam works is that the settlement of substance.money does not in fact coincide with the settlement of form.money. this because there's an absolute thermodynamic taboo against coincidence.
mircea_popescu: not all these dts are exploitable in practice ; but all are exploitable in principle.
mircea_popescu: so S sends C you a check ; thereby transferring to you the form of some money ; but not their substance. C proceeds to send S a wire, thereby transferring the form and the substance ; C is out some money.
mircea_popescu: it has a myriad forms, such as for instance http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-04#1462441 ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-05-04 12:56 mircea_popescu: and in other lulz, http://dpaste.com/2Y0VAST
asciilifeform: the thermodynamic 'taboo against the coincidence' is described in, oddly enough, winnie pooh! '"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.' ☟︎☟︎
mircea_popescu: but they all reduce to "more fluff to make it easier for C to swallow the faux identity painted over a difference"
mircea_popescu: so it is.
mircea_popescu: now then. the russian bride is a peculiar variant of this scam, where the value transferred is not pecuniary, and thus encounters "troubles".
asciilifeform: aha, where the value has legs.
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: (money also has legs but they are short and caterpillar-like and thus not perceptible to untrained eye)
mircea_popescu: so then - C wants the hottie ; but the hottie has a blood price. so C pays. except the price is kidnapped on route, so C pays ransom, except hottie falls ill etc etc
mircea_popescu: the sad fact here is that you personally fall for this scam ALL THE FUCKING TIME.
asciilifeform: hm?
mircea_popescu: for instance : the seclist has a hottie (you think, for absolutely no reason - have you seen her tits ? there are rules for being a hottie, you know ?)
mircea_popescu: except there's a price! so you pay the price... except... it's ransomed en route... so you... etc
mircea_popescu: it's ridiculous, stop doing this.
asciilifeform: l0l this begins to make sense.
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: i also used to dig in junkyards tho.
mircea_popescu: now, there is nothing wrong with this if engaged in for sport
mircea_popescu: for lulz, for the evulz, for whatever the fuck.
asciilifeform: but it was considerably more rewarding than digging the bocks.
mircea_popescu: but there's something wrong when the brain parasite takes over the brain, and you start pursuing nonsense at the expense of your wealth, your health, your sanity and eventually your life.
asciilifeform: i end up in the pigsties (bock, reddit, etc.) when i begin to think that the alternative is really a solipsism.
mircea_popescu: and as to the bear and his honey, the moment before is called the endorphin shock.
asciilifeform: because it isn't as if i have hitler's actual skull on my desk, as stalin did
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform your strategy may not be driven by your perceived decision space.
mircea_popescu: enemy can fuck with that.
asciilifeform: how do i actually ~know~ that any of what we do makes a difference outside the skull ?
mircea_popescu: how do you know the moon isn't actually made of petrified ejaculate ? ☟︎
asciilifeform: i am not seeing the victories.
asciilifeform: the moon does not default to spoodge in my head.
mircea_popescu: again : the problem of reacting instead of acting is that you'll necessarily be a muppet.
asciilifeform: whereas my actual situation does default to defeat and misery, because that is the actual physical space i live in.
mircea_popescu: now THIS is entirely within the skull.
asciilifeform: not quite.
asciilifeform: speaking of which!

BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> here : http://qntra.net/2016/05/phuctor-factors-united-states-disa-key/#comment-56733 << Amazing how people at some point stopped following and reading links for context.
asciilifeform: i'm just lulzing over the - apparently backdated???! - shithub
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo eh they just wanna whine for attention.
mircea_popescu: anyway, is it a mere coincidence that some derp posing as a "free journalist" in berlin is the usg point man for the rsa diddling efforts ?
mircea_popescu: seeing how most of the affected users happen to be in germany ?
asciilifeform: waitasec
asciilifeform: i thought bock was posing as a comp sci prof
asciilifeform: and se333333k0000rit1 researcher
mircea_popescu: no. he's an unemployed (and now unemployable) copywriter.
asciilifeform: lel somehow i suspect that he is quite employed.
asciilifeform: just not in the usual honest-wurk sense.
mircea_popescu: and unfrequentable types are quite frequented. what's that do ?
mircea_popescu: they're still unfrequentable.
asciilifeform: what's an unfrequented-type ?
mircea_popescu: hermits, really.
mircea_popescu: you know, sourdough miners, naggum, redditards, that sorta thing
asciilifeform: ah, folks like asciilifeform .
mircea_popescu: awww. all the effort i put into being polite! gone in an instant!
asciilifeform: lelz!
mircea_popescu: but the point remains, there's a difference between unemployable and unemployed.
asciilifeform: i'm also lulzing re how nobody seems to know about the old pgp standard where fp was bottom n bits of the mod
asciilifeform: until i rubbed their snouts into it
asciilifeform: and even now it is somehow 'irrelevant'
mircea_popescu: expertise means something very different from itself, these days.
mircea_popescu: rather mirroring the difference between understanding and mere recognition.
mircea_popescu: at some point in the 70s the latter became the schoolhouse standard for knowledge,
mircea_popescu: and in short order... cows are expert farmers. because they recognize a farmhouse.
mircea_popescu: in other internet rot news : apparently google knows of no definition for the english world "unfrequentable"
mircea_popescu: this takes the fucking cake already.
asciilifeform: l0l!!
asciilifeform: srsly?!
mircea_popescu: look for self.
asciilifeform: in other nyoooz, approaching the 2millionth modulus.
mircea_popescu: sweet.
asciilifeform: fuel tank has another 2-3 days in it.
mircea_popescu: apparently there's going to be another 40kish or so from phf hopefully before then, which should bridge us over into next week, by which point hopefully either the ssh or the gwen archives start yielding
mircea_popescu: such an unforeseen thirst, this.
asciilifeform: well there is also the ~fresh~ sks.
mircea_popescu: ah right. you got that ?
asciilifeform: slicing it up, takes a while.
mircea_popescu: cool.
asciilifeform: prolly what i ought to do is have it suck in real time
asciilifeform: i.e. host an sks mirror on dulap.
mircea_popescu: yes, and the other additions re display keys.
asciilifeform: but i really loathe the idea of propping up the old junkyard
asciilifeform: yeah
mircea_popescu: we'll end up the master sks in short order.
asciilifeform: then we can start having our plugz pulled daily again, lel
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, it's a good idea. will ease the move to proper key format as discussed yest at any rate.
asciilifeform: ease how?
asciilifeform: convert ancient keyz?
mircea_popescu: sure.
asciilifeform: haha like mormon church converts dead indians
mircea_popescu: quite.
asciilifeform: whynot
mircea_popescu: what's the 8ball at yet ?
phf: are the keys going to be in s-expressions? :)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: still cooking the 50mil.

asciilifeform: as suggested earlier in logz
mircea_popescu: cool.
mircea_popescu: kinda funny how it STILL pops moduli, really.
asciilifeform: it might be more interesting to drop in random ~large~ primes tho

phf: yes
asciilifeform: what % of the total do they represent, would you say ?
mircea_popescu: over 99%
asciilifeform: spiffy
phf: well, from my vantage point that's close to 100
mircea_popescu: the site is eminently crawleable, page contains a reference to people who interacted with a key AND a selection of random keys.
asciilifeform: tbh i'll be quite surprised if any of them pop
asciilifeform: but hell knows.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the estimate from the little crawling i did (looking at convergence of deduped/duped sets) places it at about 40k. previous, extant intel from business perspective said "under 50k". so all items point the same way
phf: i'll do a second crawl, with a slightly cleaned up script, i might've lost a handful at the beginning because of some bugs. it's possible that there's some subpockets i didn't discover.
mircea_popescu: phf want my deduped user list to check that theory ?

asciilifeform: ~100% of the gurlz are hot.
BingoBoingo: Anyways. 38 year old woman on the prowl wants a man who unlike her transmayo ex with an office job that can lay pipe, she goes where the pipe is sold.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i thought the more typical american pattern was the opposite
asciilifeform: where a chick is no longer appealing to pipe runners and looks for office bag ☟︎
BingoBoingo: What does they men's opinions have to do with the chick's behaviors?
asciilifeform: same thing employer's opinions have to do with a stinking bum's behaviour ?
asciilifeform: e.g., his behaviour of not driving 'mercedes'

BingoBoingo kind of disappoint alf declined to comment on Petrocheese qntra http://qntra.net/2016/05/usg-stockpile-of-petrocheese-hits-new-high/
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: supposing that i correctly understood mircea_popescu's corn chronicles, the 'obeasts' belong to warren buffett every bit as surely as dr mengele's victims belonged to mengele
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: confusing post, implies that the surplus is of euro - i.e. actual - cheese
