mod6: start up
deedbot: [» Contravex: A blog by Pete Dushenski] John the mulch man. - http://www.contravex.com/2016/05/07/john-the-mulch-man/
mod6: 'tail: /mnt/btc-dev/.bitcoin/debug.log: file truncated' :D
shinohai: lol mine built fine too on Gentoo, gonna test on Deb later
mod6: cool man
mod6: getting blocks...
mod6: alright, i'll try out some of this stuff.
shinohai: I haven't got to test send/receive yet ... still no place to buy coins for cash in this godforsaken country.
mod6: this friggin bogus account balance.
mod6: gotta fix that
shinohai: whats wrong with it?
mod6: u need some hacker tokens?
shinohai wishes we still had testnet in a way. :/
mod6: shinohai: oh its showing way more than i actually have in the wallet. it's re-adding the change to the overall balance.
mod6: gotta test with real numbers
shinohai: mine will show previous balances based on time it is synced on the blockchain
mod6: ok, truth be told, im not sure what its malfunction is.
mod6: it's a bug though. gotta dig into it. we have a ticket for it.
mod6: ticket id 1
mod6: thebitcoin.foundation/tickets/tickets.html
mod6: anyway shoot me an addy, and i'll throw you some digits
mod6: ok so this thing dumped out a privkey just fine.
mod6: i tried to reimport that same key - it gave me an error, which, it probably should, but it's a bit non-descript.
mod6: not the end of the world. the whole thing needs a rewrite anyway.
mod6: private key dumped is valid
mod6: cool
mod6: :]
shinohai: back, yeah sometimes it acts a little weird when you import keys, like mine will hang a really long time.
shinohai: but it exports fine, which is really important too lol
mod6: oh. hm. we better test the shit out of importing priv keys
phf: mircea_popescu: that's what i was working on before the log issue became critical, and i might need to just write it up since i'm having hard time communicating the graph/press discrepancy
shinohai: I have done it at least 20-30 times with no major issues so far, mostly with vanitygen addys
mod6: does it work everytime as long as the privkey is valid?
mod6: what about invalid keys?
phf: there were suggestion "just do X" and i would try them and discover that they wouldn't actually solve the problem
shinohai: At least it didn't destroy my whole wallet like last time I used pybitcointools
mod6: does it error out properly?
mod6: heh, that's a good thing (tm)
shinohai: hmmm ... good question on the invalid key thing. That should be tested sure
phf: note that the graph edge can actually have multiple different meanings. on mod6 graph, an edge means "patches share a common hash". on my graph edge means "patch can be applied on top of other patch without conflict"
mod6: i just tested trying to dump a key from an address not in the wallet and it says:
mod6: "Private key for address 1ABitcoinAddyBlahBlah is not known"
mod6: so that works
mod6: some day im gonna have to write a boatload more cucumber tests for this shit
mod6: today is not that day
shinohai: lol
mod6: :D
mod6: Ok i just tried to import an invalid private key
mod6: it says: 'error: {"code":-5,"message":"Invalid private key"}
mod6: so that works.
shinohai: sweet. I kept getting that error when I first patched it because I forgot to decrypt my wallet like an idiot.
mod6: i just tried dumping a priv key from an invalid bitcoin address, error says: 'error {"code":-5,"message":"Invalid bitcoin address"}'
mod6: so thats good
ben_vulpes: phf: iirc that notion descends from stan's original V.
phf: ben_vulpes: which notion?
ben_vulpes: that edges mean patches share a common hash
mod6: shinohai: ok thats an interesting test case
ben_vulpes: although hang on let me think
phf: no, that's correct
mod6: thats not a bad test we wanna try to break this fucker
phf: in ascii's v graph edge means "share a common hash"
shinohai: That's what I'm here for to break it or fuck it up :D
phf: but that doesn't guarantee a clean press as a graph transition. it only guarantees clean press when you topo sort the graph
ben_vulpes: > press as a graph transition << would you elaborate?
ben_vulpes: phf ^^
phf: say you have two files, a b. patch X takes a from null to hash 0 and b from null to hash 0
phf: sorry scratch that
phf: patch X takes a from null to 1, b from null to 2
phf: patch Y takes b from 2 to 3
phf: patch Z takes a from 1 to 8, b from 3 to 4
phf: the graph for that is X->Y->Z, X->Z
phf: because X and Z share a's hash, X and Y share b's hash, Y and Z share b's hash
phf: but you can't actually press from X->Z, even though they are "antecedents", because Z requires Y to be pressed first
phf: X and Z share a's hash, but they have conflicting b hashes
ben_vulpes: ah, transition.
phf: so you can do a single pass (and that's what my graph does) to eliminate all the edges that have conflicts
phf: but you then run into the issue is that the conflict might be introduced up the graph chain
phf: and that's where my thinking gets fuzzy, because i didn't really finish this whole exercise
asciilifeform: the lily needs no guilding.
asciilifeform: 'same hash' is the correct v.
asciilifeform: *gilding
asciilifeform: 'no conflict' is fuzzy and introduces potential of subtle breakage
asciilifeform: because gnudiff has no notion of semantics of the language, only dumb linear text
asciilifeform: the 'hash must match' is the only path to 'i meant what i said and i said what i meant, a walrus is certain one hundred percent'
asciilifeform: ;;later tell mircea_popescu http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-07#1464467 << BEHOLD! key circa 2011, UPDATED 2012!111111111111 bock can eat shit ☝︎

asciilifeform: Version: GnuPG v2.0.14 (GNU/Linux) << if the submitter is to be believed !
asciilifeform is back from mega-expo at, among other places, ar embassy. very lulzy.
asciilifeform: what was lulzier was that apparently 'top seeekrit' apparatchiks are not permitted to attend such shows, at least without special dispensation from company chekist
asciilifeform: because - potentially - 'what if goes in but never comes out' - or the like.
ben_vulpes: never comes out of /ar/ embassy?
ben_vulpes: heh.
asciilifeform: ask hitler, not me.
ben_vulpes: what they have secret combudder/aerospace engineering programs?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: concern is that embassy of 'neutral' country is a great place to betray the motherland to kgb. or the like.
phf: asciilifeform: no conflict doesn't have much to do with gnudiff. "conflict" in this case means that the patches contain at least TWO files one has shared hash, and the other one hash different hashes
asciilifeform: this is not without historic basis, but still lulzy.
phf: *has different
asciilifeform: phf: if anything conflicts -> no go.
asciilifeform: the fact that gnudiff will happily patch mismeshing file trees in certain circumstances is, from our pov, BRAINDAMAGE
asciilifeform: rather than a helpful feature.
phf: asciilifeform: that's not how v's ~graph~ operates
phf: i'm not talking about gnudiff and presses
asciilifeform: if it isn't, then it isn't complete.
phf: v's graph says "these two patches share a common hash", but that doesn't mean that one can be pressed on top of another in isolation
phf: i need to just write this stuff up, but at this point i'm leaning towards the idea that you can't really make a better graph than "shares a hash", and all that communicates is that "this guy uses content from this other guy"
phf: but if you want to talk about presses you have to look at the whole subgraph, hmm
ben_vulpes: it's only ever made sense to me in the context of pressing a specific patch.
ben_vulpes: as in, given this patchset, and this particular patch, apply all of the antecedents in the correct order.
ben_vulpes: (and then the given patch)
ben_vulpes: again, if i recall correctly, asciilifeform's v will press all of the same-leaf-level patches as the given patch, /up to the given patch (inclusive)/ in alphabetical order
asciilifeform: l0l! largest wasp i've ever seen. barely fit through the vac hose!
asciilifeform: about as thick, and long, as my thumb.

mircea_popescu: this can't be right.
mircea_popescu: phf> the graph for that is X->Y->Z, X->Z << this is incorrect. the graph for that is "X->Y->Z". "X->Z" is not correct because Z requires b 3 and x does not provide b3. ☟︎
mod6: shinohai: this is the rebased funk privkey patch http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/caa33111-6432-4488-be6a-33ec7bdb45c6/?raw=true
mod6: if you grab this, and it didn't get munged, you should end up with this hash: 6eaa543333746c11069ff9ca85aaa6330419d0be95de21fafcdbd500e1bc6df2ef10c2dc1d104b15cb50da7b362eac6bf1ddf3830329367b31c1e59e1dc3c6a9
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform> 'no conflict' is fuzzy and introduces potential of subtle breakage << i agree with this view, for the reasons stated. same hash has to be the criterion.
mod6: further, use `v' and ensure that your patches dir is up to date with the mirror. if you're not sure, just mv your patches dir to like 'patches.old' and then use 'init' to get the latest.
mod6: then copy the funk vpatch into patches dir
asciilifeform: if hash-in mismatches - patch MUST fail. ditto if hash-out does.
mod6: then see if you can press it successfully: `./v.pl p v v054-wFunk asciilifeform_maxint_locks_corrected.vpatch`
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i re-read what he's saying, i'm not even sure we actually grasp what the man is trying to say.
asciilifeform: and for ENTIRE file set.
mircea_popescu: or at least i can't seem to reorder it into something that seems reasonable.
mod6: asciilifeform: are you talking to me?
mircea_popescu: mod6 nah we're wringing over earlier graph discussion
mod6: im talking about the hash of the vpatch file itself.
asciilifeform: mod6: mircea_popescu , re phf's observation
mod6: oah ok
mod6: im pretty well convinced that what I have constructed works fine.
asciilifeform: my understanding was that he was making use of loose coupling somehow
asciilifeform: where there was not strict all-must-match.
mircea_popescu: i got as far ; but i don't see where or how, and his example is broken
asciilifeform: perhaps he might supply another when he wakes up.

phf: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-08#1464645 << pretty sure that's where there's a lot of confusion, even between what you're saying and what ascii is saying ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-05-08 04:11 mircea_popescu: phf> the graph for that is X->Y->Z, X->Z << this is incorrect. the graph for that is "X->Y->Z". "X->Z" is not correct because Z requires b 3 and x does not provide b3.
phf: in v's definition of antecedent, the only requirement is "share a single hash"
phf: so the fact that Z requires b 3 is irrelevant, since Z also requires a 1
phf: that's not my definition by the way, that's how the graph is constructed inside v.py (v99.py:143 get_ante)
shinohai: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-08#1464690 <<< thx mod6 ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-05-08 04:46 mod6: shinohai: grab this one http://www.mod6.net/btcf/test/mod6_funken_prikey_tools.vpatch
mircea_popescu: phf prolly. let's delve.
mircea_popescu: phf so basically you found a bug in mod6's perl implementation of v ?
phf: mircea_popescu: i don't think that's a bug, that's more of a conceptual thing.
mircea_popescu: how so ?
phf: that's the behavior of the original v where the graph doesn't communicate any additional information beyond "shares a hash" ☟︎
mircea_popescu: so ? this doesn't prove "not a bug"
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-08#1464711 << mno. it communicates 'you need this patch and its antecedents' ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-05-08 14:15 phf: that's the behavior of the original v where the graph doesn't communicate any additional information beyond "shares a hash"
asciilifeform: and yes, because they share a hash
asciilifeform: what of it ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you talking about yours or mod6's ?
asciilifeform: mine
mircea_popescu: we were not talking about yours.
asciilifeform: and his
asciilifeform: well phf was , i think, speaking of the basic vtron conceptually
mircea_popescu: i think mod6's might actually try to press on the basis of "has ONE antecedent"
asciilifeform: hm
mircea_popescu: he couldn't have had, since he gave examples.
asciilifeform will have to actually read mod6's thing before commenting further
phf: (i don't really know how mod6's vtron operates, only speaking of mine and asciilifeform's)
mircea_popescu: uh. wait, which was the one in py ?
phf: asciilifeform's
mircea_popescu: right cuz mod made it in perl, nm.
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: i take it back. ok, so :
mircea_popescu: get_ante returns all leaves required for a press.
asciilifeform: well recall , my vtron was incomplete in the aspect where it assumed that any leaf was pressable per se
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: this was clearly explained. then various folks tried to derive a means to auto sort leaves in some meaningful way
phf: mircea_popescu: in the example that i gave, get_ante is the function that establishes graph edges
mircea_popescu: yeah.
mircea_popescu: phf the thing remains, it's risky to take tmsr prototypes and extract meaning as if they were definitive canonical implementations of concepts. they aren't, yet.
mircea_popescu: and as more people get involved this will be our bane, because it's really fucking difficult to correctly mark the walls and the scaffolding.
asciilifeform: my vtron was very much a battlefield wunderwaffen, adequate strictly for pressing a well-gardened trb tree that consisted 95% of asciilifeform
mircea_popescu: irl fragile parts like windows get a paint X on them, but here no such luck.
asciilifeform: i still use it
phf: well, there's no issue with that graph presentation, because it produces correct press. it's just that graph is "meaningless" without the toposort. visualizing it doesn't answer any question beyond "this and that share a hash"
mircea_popescu: back to the issue of substance. the idea is that whatever any current implementation may do, a situation where : 1) X takes A from 1 to 2 and B from 1 to 2 ; 2) Y takes A from 2 to 3 and B from 3 to 3 and 3) Z takes A from 2 to 4 and B from 3 to 4 should be represented as X->Y->Z only, and not as X->Y->Z, X->Z
asciilifeform: the basic confusion comes from how we have two uncoupled things tied together with rope
mircea_popescu: yeah, asciilifeform and i think it's time to specify that rope.
asciilifeform: namely 'patchons', actual dependent gibblets, are grouped into patches
asciilifeform: i suggested at one point, to uncouple them
mircea_popescu: i was thinking yest, "the solution here prolly is to forbid X containing multi As".
shinohai: The official tmsr roll 'o duct tape.
mircea_popescu: iirc this was said back in the day, briefly.
phf: right
asciilifeform: i suggested this, iirc, last september
mircea_popescu: somethinglikethat.
asciilifeform: but it has serious down sides
mircea_popescu: myeah.
mircea_popescu: chief downside is that we'll need an ide/emacs skin\
asciilifeform: it would permit nonviable chimeras, for instance
mircea_popescu: topological sorting becomes expensive and slow and etc
asciilifeform: suddenly the simplicity aspect would be lost.
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: still, this is a problem in search of a good solution.
mircea_popescu: and phf has a point in that it's not even a very well understood one.
asciilifeform: i am not certain that we have a problem !
asciilifeform: my v works when among gentlemen
mircea_popescu: i mean socially. whether we have a technical problem or not is part of the problem.
phf: i think the problem is "what does v graph supposed to communicate to the viewer"
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in other campus news, http://67.media.tumblr.com/6459edb89a9633869c33c713fbbb7186/tumblr_nig959SxtB1u5ddqjo3_400.gif
phf: and ~not~ anything related to a working press
asciilifeform: for instance, and i warned of this from the beginning, v operators are trusted never to create cycles.
mircea_popescu: phf "how did i end up with z and what's its connection to origin"
asciilifeform: there is no handy technopill against cycle
phf: mircea_popescu: right
mircea_popescu: right. and in the example given, X->Z (or rather, Z > X) is not a connection to origin.
phf: so there are two issues with the thinking down that line
phf: one is that edge can indicate independent transitions vs all dependents
mircea_popescu: define these terms ?
phf: let's say you have x->y z->y. in the first case it means "i can press y on top of x" OR "i can press y on top of z"
mircea_popescu: wait, what ?!
asciilifeform: realize, v was something that i was specifically only able to conceive of because i am working with cultured folks who can be relied upon to not shit in the kitchen. operating vtron will always require a good measure of intelligence, wisdom, restraint...
mircea_popescu: oh, something like "either y or z could be pressed on top of x" yeah ok
phf: right
mircea_popescu: right, keep to alphabet order as historical.
phf: the second meaning is, and that one comes up since we have multiple files to a patch, in order to press x i need both y and z.
phf: wait, i think i utterly confused the issue. one sec let me restate it
asciilifeform: thing is, i realized a while back that a leaf depending on other leaves at all, is abuse of v
asciilifeform: leaf must depend only on nonlenleaves.
mircea_popescu: phf please.
asciilifeform: nonleaves
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform understand, it's not just that "if we can't get v to be easily intuitive it won't see mass adoption". it's moreover that if v isn't reducible to crystal fucking clear, we fucked something up.
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: and imho it is clear.
asciilifeform: once we stop demanding that it sort leaves somehow
mircea_popescu: i thought so too, but then again this guy's leet py script beat my bash hackery outta water, so let's hear him out.
phf: mircea_popescu: X<-Z Y<-Z, that means that having press to X you can now press Z on top OR having pressed to X you can now press Z on top. alternatively it can mean, in order to press Z you need both X and Y pressed.
mircea_popescu: in my mind, these two are not ambiguous, because correctly working graphaton would represent them respectively as
mircea_popescu: Y Z Y Z
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: \ / | |
mircea_popescu: X X X
mircea_popescu: first pair is first, 2nd pair is 2nd
phf: ah, in which case you preserve the idea of "edge in means possible transition"
mircea_popescu: or fuck, seems somehow Z is the antecedent of everything nao ?
mircea_popescu: phf think of it like this : if letter comes earlier in alphabet, item it denotes comes earlier in time-entalpy.
mircea_popescu: x may not know of z ; only z may know of x.
phf: right, that's the basic principle
mircea_popescu: well then don't say stuff like Z->Y.
mircea_popescu: and don't say stuff like <- either. time goes ->
mircea_popescu: darned jews infiltrating tmsr.
phf: antecedent relationship goes backwards though. x<-y perhaps means y points at x as a parent without x's knowledge
mircea_popescu: thinking about it, my enthalpy-based objections seem to come out of left field. somehow it seemed obvious to me that this property of "cone of knowledge" as per particle physics is part of v,
mircea_popescu: but thinking about it nowhere was it said.
mircea_popescu: phf if you use -> ambiguously nobody will be able to think about this, you least of all.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what's the standard term of "enthalpy equivalent in turing machines" ? the shannon factor ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: today it is a unit, shannon, sh
asciilifeform: nobody seems to use tho
mircea_popescu: well what the fuck do they know.
mircea_popescu: ah, no, sh is the equiv of entropy. "count of possible states".
mircea_popescu: perhaps the difference not interesting here.
asciilifeform: ah you wanted enthalpy , hm
asciilifeform: nfi what that would be here
mircea_popescu: ok, more practically speaking : the graphatron is a visualizer of individual patches event horizons. how about that.
mircea_popescu: no need to mix 19th century understanding of qm in shorthand statistical form at all.
mircea_popescu: (event horizon is the boundry past which phenomena can no further affect the observer)
asciilifeform: the opposite?
mircea_popescu: the opposite of a boundry ?
asciilifeform: (if it dn affect the observer, he's not observing!)
mircea_popescu: lolk.
asciilifeform: it is the boundary where observer can no longer get sucked into the phenomenon .
mircea_popescu: (event horizon is the boundry whithin which phenomena can affect the observer) << this is a much less intuitive, if technically correct affirmative statement.
mircea_popescu: anywya : as the graph progresses past the antecedent of a leaf, it therefore goes outside the event horizon of that leaf.
mircea_popescu: so if we're drawing and leaf Z requires a in state 3 and we're at state 4, that's it for Z.
asciilifeform: unless we press to z
asciilifeform: recall, thing is steerable
mircea_popescu: that's a press. we're drawing here.
asciilifeform: then yes
mircea_popescu: right.
asciilifeform: but a drawing of the graph illustrates all pressables.
mircea_popescu: in some sort of eigenstate*
mircea_popescu: it doesn't illustrate all pressables that are, but a sort of all pressables that could ever be.
mircea_popescu: in completely unrelated lulz : the "minimum description length community" (what ? dunno, ask them) changed turing's nit to to "nat", because why the fuck not.
asciilifeform: l0l!!
mircea_popescu: modern democracy.
asciilifeform: kicking dead lion is easy.
asciilifeform: expect this unit to be eventually renamed to 'qeer' or the like.
asciilifeform: 1298527/1298527 incidentally.
asciilifeform: and... 37080/38479.
asciilifeform: nearly through.
asciilifeform: good for another hour or so !
mircea_popescu: onoes!
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well, write it a nice 8ball expander to keep adding primes and that's that, can let it be.
mircea_popescu: 2.15mn is not bad. punkman1 got anywhere with the sr stuff ?

BingoBoingo: MegaLOL
pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo: lol i won't even try to guess what you think i should think about the alberta wildfires, but it's pretty damn lulzy to watch the reigning socialist party flail impotently as they attribute the projected 1/3rd loss of ~the country's~ economic growth for the quarter to "karma" because "karbon"
BingoBoingo: Oh, you've talked about the "boomtown" in decline thing going on there for a while
pete_dushenski: 'boomtown' isn't growing at 10-20% per annum, tis true, but it's pretty resilient at these oil price levels. $20 would be a massacre, $40+ is more than liveable
pete_dushenski: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-08#1464636 << a chunk of this seemingly excess capacity is to account for two things : a) the obvious need for husky bodyguards to accompany asian heads of state, and b) the less obvious need for the same platform to accommodate the optional hybrid battery pack that weighs ~900lbs~ more and takes up most of the trunk. ☝︎

pete_dushenski: i wish bbet would come back so i could bet on phuctor cracking a deedbot l2 key. seems like the kind of thing no one would expect, like ron paul talking for 10 minutes or w/e it was
pete_dushenski: still weird that znort is awol. she has a key, why not provide updates here ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nice find eh.
mircea_popescu: modern democracy. creating history, since 1950.
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski don't forget armor.
pete_dushenski: armor, batteries, a week's supply of astronaut food...
mircea_popescu: armor's the big thing.
pete_dushenski: though really, what's wrong with being assassinated ? better than irrelevancy in old age
pete_dushenski: ask napolean
pete_dushenski: http://www.alpineco.com/armored/Lexus/LS600-hybrid.php << 1700lbs of armor. oof!
pete_dushenski: that'll slow you down more than mysterious dedibox unpluggings
mircea_popescu: yeah. most upper line merc/lexus/what have you have the engine and torque transmission etc optimized for armor even if you're not buying the armor upgrade.
mircea_popescu: also a large part of why diesel upscale cars were popular for so long. excellent torque.
mircea_popescu: kinda died off with the age of rocketry, bout late 90s.
mircea_popescu: no idea why they didn't go full takn and add the gunports, but w/e.
BingoBoingo: in other lolz http://qntra.net/2016/05/abducted-liberty-reserve-founder-sentenced-to-20-years-in-prison/#comment-57620
mircea_popescu: lol!
mircea_popescu: "was naturally involved with the prosecution with evil itself offering:" << this dun flow. "was naturally involved with the prosecution:"
mircea_popescu: severe the relationship << sever
mircea_popescu: lol sorry for your laws. epic.
pete_dushenski: gunports make plenty of sense, as does the fact that tmsr will end up redesigning personal transportation along with computing and everything else besides
mircea_popescu: yeah, flying bikesheds.
pete_dushenski imagines cows and catapults
pete_dushenski: btw happy mother's day! (to diana_coman(?), etc.)
pete_dushenski: first one for the girl. no big deal.
asciilifeform: armour worked for lenin.
asciilifeform: but he was an orc.
asciilifeform: 'humans' decided that it is easier/cheaper to lobotomize population
asciilifeform: so 'no one thinks of' firing.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform note that they very carefully don't go places lenin went w/o a thought.
mircea_popescu: rocketry. ended many things.
asciilifeform: long before rocket
asciilifeform: shaped charge.
asciilifeform: and yes, lizards returned to 'forbidden city' model.
mircea_popescu: yeah, but that was only half the answer. rocket also delivers the hsaped charge.
asciilifeform: aha. in the old days you had to bury it.
mircea_popescu: and notice that it did end stuff like the a-h empire.
asciilifeform: in none too distant future, lizards will have to avoid open sky entirely
asciilifeform: as 'quad chopper' from 2000 metres can also deliver shaped charge.
mircea_popescu: aha.
BingoBoingo: fxd
mircea_popescu: well... they already kinda do.
asciilifeform: (and, i will add, NONE of today's vehicles have decent top armour)
pete_dushenski: what's decent ?
asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: anything like the side plate
mircea_popescu: he has a point. there is no more decent.
asciilifeform: reactive, say
mircea_popescu: "armor" in vehicles is like "antivirus" in computers.
mircea_popescu: if you got it, you lose.
asciilifeform: quite
pete_dushenski: like obummer's 'beast' aha
asciilifeform: at any rate, 'swarm' attack makes the reactive brick a laugh
mircea_popescu: quite exactly. there is no armor.
asciilifeform: so first chopper didn't break you. fine, 2nd, 3rd, 4th.
pete_dushenski: might as well jfkconvertible it then
pete_dushenski: i can see it
asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: the problem was solved long ago, by only parading disposable figureheads in public.
asciilifeform: (have you ever seen, e.g., dimon, in a motorcade ?)
pete_dushenski: i just read about zuckerberg's 'sekoority' expenses
pete_dushenski: something like $4-6mn a year ? maybe not much, but more than mp spends, likely
asciilifeform: potus spends more still, what of it
asciilifeform: any idiot with money can spend.
pete_dushenski: so they can, so they do
pete_dushenski: alas, i must unfortunately be off again. will endeavour to return soon. and for longer!
mircea_popescu: the notion that money buys security is not unlike the notion that smegma buys health.
mircea_popescu: (yes, smegma does have some health benefits in some circumstances that you're not likely to encounter, that nevertheless had a larger impact on history of life on earth than anything you ever encountered conceivably could.)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: supposing the money buys anything at all, he is buying http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-04#1462341 ☝︎

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform famous case of central asian conflict, rich guy vs powerful guy, rich guy end up fed liquid gold.
asciilifeform: aha i recall.
mircea_popescu: incidentally that was VERY MUCH a case of usistan vs iranistan.

danielpbarron: mircea_popescu> incidentally that was VERY MUCH a case of usistan vs iranistan << iranistan is the actual name of a street around where i live, a word invented by pt barnum (the circus guy) who was the mayor for a time ; he wanted to build his mansion on a street that had an exotic sounding name. The thing has since burned down if i'm not mistaken, and the street is now littered with those getto style houses that look like they sho
danielpbarron: mircea_popescu> and in other news, holy shit check out the scam of the future << sounds like a copy-cat of "warhammer" which I think had a medieval theme; the figures come unpainted and you're supposed to paint them yourself. i think that's more of the point as a little art project although i'm sure the price is ridiculous
mircea_popescu: ha, fancy that. had no idea barnum was a mayor.
mircea_popescu: but anyway : these seem fully built. not that there's anything wrong with buying little mass produced statuettes, it's how the catholic church made half its money.
