mircea_popescu: which is why "every" imbecile ustard agreed di maggio is some sort of big deal 50 years ago, much like every argentine fucktard thinks messi is "his idol".

mircea_popescu: fuck whatever the fuck derp "can't" (ie, doesn't, DELIBERATELY, want to) get in the WoT. Fuck him with ten thousand dongs borrowed from the leprosarium, he is the enemy.
mircea_popescu: above any obama or any other nigger ; above any "4th column" idiot kids imagining themselves sikrit agents.
mircea_popescu: "In Texas and a number of other states, it’s legal to shoot a dog if someone is “reasonably” afraid of it." << everywhgere sane, pretty much. wtf.
mircea_popescu: you want to derp with dogs, buy a ranch.

a111: Logged on 2016-05-30 23:43 mircea_popescu: the test for the nascent burgunds / germans / whatever the fyck you'd call them wasn't whether "they could build roman baths", either.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-30#1473835 << i'ma have to reread the original mircea_popescu-vs-locklin thing aren't i. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-05-30 23:44 mircea_popescu: it was whether they'll live or die on the corpse of rome's empire. strictly that. and in my hands locklin will starve.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i am not going to import as much as a nail's dirt worth of old crap, even for all the vases in the world, be they made of glass bead or kidney stone.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is a defensible position, but so is the fact that folks who don't know what a prime number is are beasts of the field.
asciilifeform: just like folk who haven't any clue how to adjust rifle for wind and fall.
asciilifeform: or can't wire a light.
mircea_popescu: i am not convinced there's twenty people alive who know what a number is altogether, prime or not.
asciilifeform: know in the rifle sense.
asciilifeform: not in peano's.
mircea_popescu: and that should now make a difference.
asciilifeform: it makes a difference precisely where the rifle does.
mircea_popescu: since when does this "functional literacy" constitute a standard.
asciilifeform: if you can't pgp you are a beast of the field.
asciilifeform: and pgp is liable to resolve to 'build it'.
asciilifeform: just like in 15th c. cannoneer and trigonometer was identical.
asciilifeform: dun like this standard? complain to god of war, not me.
mircea_popescu: was never fucking identical.
asciilifeform: well obviously not in the 'every bloke with cannon a pythagoras' sense.
mircea_popescu: king's artillery school "trigonometeer" was trigonometeer much like aol subscriber was "interneteer".

asciilifeform: did mircea_popescu get bitten by peron's zombie or wut.
asciilifeform: i can tell he is throwing things.
mircea_popescu: i have nfi dude, i've never been this sick in my life.
asciilifeform: mosquito bites ?
asciilifeform: perhaps it's that plague
mircea_popescu: it's some obscure common cold branch. ain;'t got nothin' but wastin' my time.
asciilifeform: damn.
asciilifeform wishes mircea_popescu a quick return to battle form.
mircea_popescu: this is my battle form.
mircea_popescu: when healthy i'm in more of a scholarly form i guess.
asciilifeform: ah hm.
asciilifeform: in related nyooz i saw what passes for an american military parade today
asciilifeform: it was mightily depressing
asciilifeform: buncha high school bands from midwest.
mircea_popescu: were the nukes pointy at least ?
asciilifeform: and some VERY old men pulled in a wagon thing behind a jeep
asciilifeform: korea vets.
asciilifeform: not ONE rocket or tank or ... any.
asciilifeform: not even motorbikers, apparently those went the other day, in the good weather.
asciilifeform: the americans, so sad, have nfi what a real parade is!
asciilifeform: they think this is it!
mircea_popescu: the chinese are busting the records for that.
asciilifeform: i bet the chinese don't even have to drive the same rocket around a corner 10 times.
asciilifeform: like su did.
mircea_popescu: nope. they actually (from what i hear) make pools and pick which to run
mircea_popescu: so they don't end up embarassed. like, 1 of 3 regiments goes, sorta thing
asciilifeform: as a boy i always imagined that chinese parade includes blokes carrying little stools from which they will - together, and seismically calamitously - jump !
mircea_popescu: lotta changed since you were a boy!
mircea_popescu: used to be, you know, back in the 80s, china was roughly speaking a very large vietnam.
asciilifeform: they had working nukes when i was a boy.
asciilifeform: though people forget this.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-30#1473652 << it won't be so, for the same exact reason the "true standard" of "original vellum roll with chain of custody" didn't make it as a "golden standard" past 500ad. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-05-30 15:42 asciilifeform: i wish this were not so
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform they had norking wukes ~in the sense the brits do : the americans gave them some.
asciilifeform: in '70s?!
asciilifeform: afaik american 'donation' to cn began with clinton.
mircea_popescu: at whatever point they had that fallout with moscow.
mircea_popescu: naw.
asciilifeform: interesting...
asciilifeform: and to india, they also gave ?!
mircea_popescu: there was military tech transfer to china right around the cuban crisis.
asciilifeform: btw according to brits the american nuke was a fair trade for the gas
mircea_popescu: india i have nfi, possibly brits gave them.
mircea_popescu: sure, and according to every divorced woman the house was fair trade for the nagging.
asciilifeform: lol aha
mircea_popescu: now, not to say that current chinese capacities in rocketry and so on aren't mostly chinese. they are ; with a little dab of helping from anyone available to help for a reasonable fee, the swiss, romanians, jews, whoever the fuck.
asciilifeform: iirc that khan fella went round and round, helpin'.
asciilifeform: and that's just the 1 who advertised his name.
mircea_popescu: truth be told this isn't particularly advanced tech.
asciilifeform: i'd idly like to know if anyone is using the laser separator.
mircea_popescu: wasn't in the 40s either, more of a "holy shit engineering feat" than a "omaigerd its incomprehensible arcana"
asciilifeform: (~100x cheaper than centrifuge isotope separation device)
asciilifeform: in '40s the separation machine was ruinously inefficient.
asciilifeform: esp. the american abomination
asciilifeform: calutron.
asciilifeform: remember it? gigantic mass spec.
asciilifeform: with a funnel.
mircea_popescu: very deeply embedded in my skull as an example of "american engineering"
asciilifeform: usa had cheap electric, but was not remotely cheap enough.
asciilifeform: aha, every literate man's skull i think
mircea_popescu: good thing they didn't make a tin woman, in the shape of a raindeer with a funnel up its butt.
asciilifeform: which is why the crackpot hypothesis that they plundered german uranium is so popular
asciilifeform: there is, in archive, a letter from general groves to truman stating, plainly, that there will not be REMOTELY enough U for bomb. ☟︎
asciilifeform: in '44.
asciilifeform: (at the production rate then.)
mircea_popescu: it's doubtful wtf the germans had.
asciilifeform: what exactly patton (who died in strange circumstances right after war) found when he plundered the seeekrit shit, is still Officially Seekrit.
asciilifeform: ditto what was in the massive 6-engined junkers that flew to buenos aires in '45.
mircea_popescu: yeah, but he's fondly remembered as the "let's keep going" guy.
asciilifeform: aha.
asciilifeform: at any rate, germany had the gas centrifuge, it is where su found it.
asciilifeform: worked great.

asciilifeform: i recall a very recent post re some derp who had to be formally drummed out on account of persistent idiocy
mircea_popescu: the one time when "has Latin", that, specifically, not "can write" or other junk would have served as you wish it to serve, was cca 500 ad. and at that time it served like "knowing idish" served you in the new york harbor cca early 1900s. plenty of people were there because specifically "Pedalavo come se fuggissi, e in realta fuggivo, da lei, da quelle emozioni, da i sogni, da i ricordi, da tutto.

asciilifeform: one set carrying banner, 'korean unification league' or somethinglikethat
asciilifeform: hard to imagine moar pathetic set.
asciilifeform: except possibly if they had czechs

asciilifeform: (and nothing at all about, well, the folks who actually kicked the jerries out of their pesthole)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so dude goes in, wants to buy coppers, which me and n other people tell him to simmer down and figure out the game first ; then spends the next weeks hussling bitcent at a time.
mircea_popescu: his whatever subscription UNEXPECTEDLY ended today, he had no idea this is gonna occur you know, 4 days ago.
asciilifeform: eulora has subscriptions ?!
mircea_popescu: nope.
asciilifeform: then ???
mircea_popescu: i dunno what he was paying, something steam or whatever
asciilifeform: what's it to do with eulora ?!
asciilifeform: what am i missing
mircea_popescu: dude had an unexpected expense in the form of a lapsing subscription, being the idea.
asciilifeform: ah he wanted btc
mircea_popescu: ~like "hey, my electricity bill came thursday, i had no idea monday this might occur"
asciilifeform: and ~demanded!1111~ to be fed
asciilifeform: this apparently is an actual thing, some folks were taken down from the trees by mistake, and cannot handle any timed process more complicated than skinning banana
mircea_popescu: "i've never observed these things show up regularly on a monthly schedule befoar"
shinohai: ty BingoBoingo
mircea_popescu: it's a very "western world" phenomena, roughly half the beatings in half the girls in the first half year have something to do with "i was surprised by X periodic event", usually a bill or w/e
asciilifeform: one would naively imagine that GURLS would have no problem with this !1111
asciilifeform: srsly do they not menstruate.
asciilifeform: does it not behave even approximately as timer.
asciilifeform: or is it, too, 'surprise' ?!
mircea_popescu: honestly i think it's an outgrowth of the "college experience"
asciilifeform: where, what, there is no such thing as semester ?
mircea_popescu: college in teh modern democracy being this roughly speaking featureless insane asylum. getting terms extended becomes then positive attention, and so they start seeking it for lack of anything else more meaningful to seek
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i was in the asylum, it had the seeds of this at the time.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform a) most surpriseful of all surprises b) girls of the age living "alone" ie, not tonsils deep in other girl's cunts don't usually have regular periods.
asciilifeform: but generally folks had to at least feign illness to get terms extended
mircea_popescu: it's a funny if poorly studied phenomenon : much like immunity in young children is mostly herd-based,
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i thought they synced with roommates / officemates
mircea_popescu: period regulation in young females is ALSO herd based.
mircea_popescu: not without biological exchange though.
asciilifeform: there is ~no such thing in usa studentland as 'chick living alone'.
mircea_popescu: think in terms of "hepatitis alone" rather than "influenza alone"
asciilifeform: i thought all they had to do was be in smellin' range.
mircea_popescu: notrly. i think that only works in rats.
mircea_popescu: wearing each other's underwear works though.
asciilifeform: in the kind of close quarters dorm folk live in, they may as well be eating each other's undies.
asciilifeform: (have you ~seen~ the rat pits.)
mircea_popescu: condomsharing (ie, when you enter them alternatively without bothering to change the condom) definitely does.
mircea_popescu: yeah well there's that.
mircea_popescu: i suspect sweat actually is also a major factor ; definitely urine. complicated matter and i'm lazy. let the curious mind run their own studies.

asciilifeform: ah so then.
asciilifeform: even more applicable.
asciilifeform: think of the gurl as a large bipedal cat.
BingoBoingo: But does girl slay mice?
asciilifeform: depends!
asciilifeform: how big are your mice. how strong - the cat.
asciilifeform: etc.
asciilifeform: and also your budget.
asciilifeform: for instance, i'm about to buy moar display. it will be an lcd. but if mircea_popescu buys another display, it won't be lcd, it'll be a thing where a gurl flips pixels manually. ☟︎
ben_vulpes: i think the 'entitlement' to which trinque refers is a specific set of attitudes common to 'millenials'.
ben_vulpes: a friend of mine recently broke up with his girl of 4+ years, and i realized during conversation about his new dating adventures and the kinds of women he was encountering that i would have patience for approximately zero reeducation at this point in my life. ☟︎
BingoBoingo: Anyways if mice are too big, blast the cat with some Tren. Cat is just a smaller racehorse that's already clued in on protein.
trinque: ben_vulpes: left the cats with ex but yes
trinque: precisely that.
ben_vulpes: but at 18, 22, it was less onerous
ben_vulpes: also i had all the time in the world
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: can haz detailz?
asciilifeform: and what is this 'millenial disease' thing, i'm not convinced that it is a thing.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: 'tikkun olam'
asciilifeform: the judaic 'build the world' thing ?
asciilifeform: explain?
ben_vulpes: healing the world
ben_vulpes: that the world cannot be made better
ben_vulpes: that the socialist call for us all to put our shoulders to the grindstone to make the world a better place only taxes those who work to benefit those who don't
ben_vulpes: that i care not one whit to spread my meager energy across the vast faceless mass of other people, but would rather concentrate it on these few that i actually like
asciilifeform: what sort of women was ben_vulpes's friend turning up ?
ben_vulpes: "if we all just X then the world would be better!"
ben_vulpes: "solve poverty!"
ben_vulpes: "end global warming"
ben_vulpes: "stop corporations"
ben_vulpes: endemic us braindamage
asciilifeform: young chix are programmable, they would just as happily 'great is the prophet muhammad' if born elsewhere. ☟︎
trinque: I work 30hrs a week doing something not economically useful yet bitch to my Yelp CEO that I am not paid a 'living wage' in a city ever less hospitable to life generally
trinque: economically, environmentally, so on
trinque: but whatever, I am "working" so deserve "living"
trinque: because I am here ☟︎
trinque: asciilifeform: sure that is so
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: i enjoy the company of adults, not children ☟︎
asciilifeform: trinque: that was the mega-mystery in the linked article
trinque: I do not wish to deprogram them of their muhammed
asciilifeform: trinque: i, for instance, hesitate to set foot in san fran even as tourist !
ben_vulpes: who've seen, experienced, breathed
asciilifeform: trinque: because expensive and because why.
asciilifeform: trinque: what's the alternative? only date chix born and raised in #t ?
trinque: the fact that these people are literally sucking california dry is no wonderment to me
trinque: asciilifeform: fucking hell yeah.
trinque: :D
asciilifeform: lel
trinque: chick I'm seeing actually you know, likes men
ben_vulpes: keep sifting through the haystack, apparently.
trinque: and didn't have to be taught to
trinque: my dating strategy up til meeting her was to reject early, reject often
asciilifeform: eh iirc mircea_popescu flies these in and reprogramms them to spec in days. ☟︎
asciilifeform: (using various whippy, stretchy hardware)
ben_vulpes: did you just proffer a pineapple?
asciilifeform: broomstick!111
ben_vulpes: "on dirigible, there is fantastic seat!"
asciilifeform: hey, when the man is asleep ~somebody~'s gotta proffer the pineapple!111 ☟︎
ben_vulpes: he enjoys the reprogramming.
trinque: no problem with bdsm here but it's entirely not my thing.
ben_vulpes: i like machines that work out of the box.
trinque: ^
ben_vulpes: lord knows i don't get that at $dayjob
phf: none do, a working machine ~always~ has signs of its master's works ☟︎
asciilifeform: ^
trinque: yeah, like its parents...
ben_vulpes: i have tuned this mill to my liking.
ben_vulpes: it took quite some time.
ben_vulpes: i would rather cut metal than spend my days tuning lathes.
trinque: that one can reprogram them doesn't invalidate the fact that having to do so is a sign that your culture's not producing functioning adults
ben_vulpes: yes, requires ongoing tuning.
ben_vulpes: but not assembly from scratch and full bed truement.
ben_vulpes: also i regularly go out of spec
asciilifeform: trinque: the last time the west produced functioning adults was prolly pre-ww2.
asciilifeform: and most of'em died.
trinque: plenty of kids raised with ass whippings in texas still
asciilifeform: as if that were the only item.
phf: ass whipped because don't love jesus enough? ;)
trinque: yes, I can be a contrarian too.
trinque: :P
trinque: on that subject, asciilifeform fix your feed or stop bitching
trinque: the ID is supposed to be unique
asciilifeform: trinque: unique how
asciilifeform: monotonically increasing ?
trinque: just one string of whatever per entry in feed
trinque: in RSS it's actually called GUID
asciilifeform: trinque: care to hazard a guess why it works 100% on kako's feed ?
trinque: because he is not relying on the ID field being unique to determine whether he's seen an entry
asciilifeform: and you are ? why ?
trinque: because the spec says it's unique
phf: i wrote a bunch of rss tooling and dealing with non-unique ids is a bitch. i usually hash entry for entries with blank ids, and return that as key.
phf: but you also have to account of all kinds of other spec violations. like having non-blank ids that are also non-unique
asciilifeform: the whole pile of shit is loathesome
asciilifeform: or, for instance, the fact that datetime has NO DEFAULT string representation
phf: or my favorite, ids that follow some magical internal logic
asciilifeform: or any of it
deedbot: [Qntra] Microsoft, Google, And Facebook Partner With EU On Censorship Effort - http://qntra.net/2016/05/microsoft-google-and-facebook-partner-with-eu-on-censorship-effort/
phf: asciilifeform: apropos, i remained surprised you reject naggum's suggestion to iso everywhere
asciilifeform: phf: i reject breaking working shit for no reason.
phf: so your rants only apply to log, and not universally?
asciilifeform: aha.
asciilifeform: and in several different ways.
asciilifeform: for instance, i used to be able to read the log by hitting 'reload' ☟︎
asciilifeform: and now i can't.
asciilifeform: for no good reason that i know of.
asciilifeform: will prolly end up writing own log viewer, at this rate.
asciilifeform: my notion of what proper log is seems to be screamingly in conflict with phf's.
asciilifeform: which is fine. it will be good to have 2.
phf: it's not, you're just impatient and short fused
asciilifeform: that also.
phf: reload particularly needs to be fixed, and it's perhaps 5 lines of code, but requires dropping one large context, and lifting another to do it intentionally. as is whatever fixes done to log str result of background radiation noise like effects of my brain, "i suddenly remember relevant bits, and here's the solution, go write it down"
trinque: phf: right, I would prefer not to account for spec violations
trinque: as per "not breaking shit that works"
trinque: obviously here I'm just using some guy's python rss module; while I can go break that to behave, not what I prefer
asciilifeform: trinque: i implemented as per your recipe, it ought to work now ?
trinque: I'll make no argument that RSS is sane, only that it has a definition
trinque: asciilifeform: yes
trinque: ID field will be unique per new RSS entry?
asciilifeform: aha.

BingoBoingo awaits hash collision
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: plenty of hashes in there to collide
asciilifeform: e.g., the gpgkey hash
trinque: life is pain (TM) (R)
asciilifeform: i never really liked the idea of a hash. ☟︎
asciilifeform: it is a dodge.
asciilifeform: a device based largely on wishful thinking.
asciilifeform: eventually all interesting hashes will collide (have collided)
asciilifeform: when the process is sped up artificially we call it a break,
asciilifeform: but how is blind luck collision less of a problem ?
asciilifeform: this is 'minsky's dark room' all over again. ☟︎
Framedragger: asciilifeform: couldn't you use an argument of a similar form to say that e.g. AES depends on luck? (2^256 keyspace of luck, for example..)
asciilifeform: Framedragger: not only it does, but likewise has unknown weak key space
asciilifeform: Framedragger: you weren't here for the 'symmetric crypto other than otp is snake oil' thread. get thee to the logz.
Framedragger: aha, then i guess you don't really enjoy the fact that gpg uses aes for session key actually? :) ☟︎
Framedragger: oh man
Framedragger: so much opinion
asciilifeform: Framedragger: quite certainly no one enjoys.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: it isn't an opinion, it is a statement of iron fact, like 2+2==4.
Framedragger: 2+2==4 only holds under boring algebras
asciilifeform: not a single symmetric cipher other than otp has ever been proven to be worth a sparrow's fart. ☟︎
