asciilifeform: ' If a trooper suspects you may have money tied to some type of crime, the highway patrol can scan any cards you have and seize the money. "We're gonna look for different factors in the way that you're acting,” Oklahoma Highway Patrol Lt. John Vincent said. “We're gonna look for if there's a difference in your story. If there's someway that we can prove that you're falsifying information to us about your business."'
asciilifeform: 'News 9 obtained a copy of the contract with the state. It shows the state is paying ERAD Group Inc., $5,000 for the software and scanners, then 7.7 percent of all the cash the highway patrol seizes.'
asciilifeform: http://oklahomawatch.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/files/2016/06/ERADContractBid.pdf << what appears to be the contract.
asciilifeform: automated account emptiers. lulzy.
shinohai: "We are proud to introduce this new tool to help you steal from citizens in a moar efficient manner."
asciilifeform: the peculiar, imho, thing, is that somehow tradition requires american police to actually charge folks who are taken to a police station. and so it is now important to rob them ~without~ arresting.
asciilifeform: also helps throughput!1111
shinohai: That's always been the case with asset forfeiture laws though.
asciilifeform: if mircea_popescu were awake, he would probably describe the process as 'what the fuck is so surprising, gas let into an empty container will fill it' or similar. nobody is blowing up the police stations in response, so there is no back-pressure and usg can do whatever.
mircea_popescu: ^
mircea_popescu: not their money anyway.

asciilifeform: it would be interesting imho to learn how the credit card automatic plunderator works:
asciilifeform: ... does it shit out $1 transactions until one bounces ?
asciilifeform: this seems unlikely, because american prepaid cardz typically have a tx fee
asciilifeform: so it stands to reason that it probably recogizes major brands of card and dials in to determine the balance
asciilifeform: so as to snarf it out in one shot.
asciilifeform: see also http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-29#1473246 .☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-05-29 14:42 mircea_popescu: how is this stance different from "the nazi military police can't find as many gypos as they used to, so therefore flaying alive of gypsies for fun should be regarded as aperfectly normal passtime, and in no sense wrong, even if it was rare before"

In Russia, there was a period of years during which the police was basically not functioning: they had no equipment, no budget, and their salaries were not sufficient for survival.

asciilifeform: ( megaclassic, http://www.fromthewilderness.com/free/ww3/071805_soviet_lessons_part3.shtml )
asciilifeform: ^ soooo it appears that the process is farther along in rural shitholes like oklahoma, than in the inhabited usa
asciilifeform: which is a mega-unsurprise.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Oklahomo isn't even rural. Rural has farms and the pastoral life. Oklohomo is just a drive thru obstacle with its fucking toll roads and meth heads.
BingoBoingo: Even the ozarks have tourism, Oklohomo lacks a Branson.
asciilifeform: 'rural shithole' is simply shithole that is dark from the satellite camera.
asciilifeform: like north kr.
asciilifeform: vs the other kind of shithole.
asciilifeform: american rural doesn't even have much to do with pastoral/village life etc.
asciilifeform: consider, in coastal usa you can still go to a few dozen kinds of shop, but in the flyoverlands you're stuck with универмаг^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hlolmart
asciilifeform: the sovietization, in the most comical sense of the word, is nearly total, complete with hruschev's corn.
asciilifeform: ~actual~ rural folk, who grow own food, make own tools, and don't need the mega-state for anything, were recognized as a thread and mostly bugsprayed eons ago.
asciilifeform: *threat
trinque: myup, the grandchildren of the generation that knew how to do that spends their time getting fat on walmart groceries and posting on facebook about "freedom ain't free"
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i am curious re the role meth plays.
asciilifeform: it always seems to figure in tales of american 'flyover.'
trinque: maybe it makes malnutrition feel better
asciilifeform: who takes it? and why? and why it and not some other dope.
BingoBoingo: It plays the same role heroin does on the coasts. Turns potential redditors into creatures out of "James Lafond Presents"
asciilifeform: meth was discovered by ru underground folk in the late '80s. on account of being quickly and easily made from materials commonly sold at the time.
asciilifeform: but my understanding is that there was NO 'market' in the usual sense of the word. you wanted some - you made some.
BingoBoingo: And so it works, or is said to work largely that way in USistan
asciilifeform: iirc it is mostly made in mexico now.
BingoBoingo: Mostly from lack of access to inputs.
BingoBoingo: But when inputs are available methfolk tend to steal them because Phree drugz
asciilifeform: eh nobody stole it in 1940s when it was sold at the bubble gum counter.
BingoBoingo: The Mexican meth largely serves to keep anyone from quietly becoming mega drug kingpin
BingoBoingo: Sure
BingoBoingo: you can say nobody stole, but there's always kids shoplifting
asciilifeform: wasn't a 'can't display this, will be stolen 5min later' situation.
asciilifeform: for non-us folk: today you can't buy a few milligram of pseudoephedrine against running nose, without filling out a form.
BingoBoingo: Anyways in the 40's all the drug products weren't on the counter next to the bubble gum. You had to talk to the pharmacist because otherwise he got lonely.
asciilifeform: after ww2 surplus meth was sold ~everywhere.
asciilifeform: didn't really carch on until that time.
asciilifeform: *catch
BingoBoingo: Surplus meth also had to compete at phamacy/soda shop against midler stimulants like Benzedrine. Stimulants were the polite national obsession at the time.
asciilifeform: i'm still quite unconvinced that empire is better off selling, e.g., the usual vodka, in shops, than meth.
asciilifeform: consider how ww2 folk did ~not~ suffer the clinical horrors of the modern users.
asciilifeform: this is on account of the well-known sequelae being largely effects of impurities, and secondarily - of lack of sleep, vs meth per se.
asciilifeform: (e.g., your teeth will look ~precisely~ like 'methhead teeth' if... you stop brushing them.)
asciilifeform: ... or blow caustic smoke across them every day.
asciilifeform: today's dope situation is quite analogous to, e.g., 18th c. english sailor's sex life - where the ~only kind of (straight!) sex you can have is, approx., with syphilitic whores, condomless
asciilifeform: the 'sex is the devil's temptation' idiots have easy pickings in that climate.

asciilifeform: (incidentally, didn't i predict the return of door-to-door tax collector ?! a few yrs ago.)
BingoBoingo: That's standard for any US thing touching "law enforcement". Ankle monitors, fine collection X% always to vendor.
danielpbarron: oklahoma has a true church -- if i were to move within the states, I'd prolly go there
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: how many tank divisions it has ?
asciilifeform: good anti-aircraft defenses ?
danielpbarron: their defensive play is to flee if things got to such a point that a tank is necessary
asciilifeform: flee to .. ?
asciilifeform: mars ?
shinohai: Pray tornado comes and send you to merry land of Oz ?
BingoBoingo: That
BingoBoingo: 's Kansas tornados
danielpbarron: Darwin likened it to the time king David fled Saul
BingoBoingo: Oklahomo isn't easy to flee... Toll roads and lpr cameras everywhere
danielpbarron: 1 Samuel 21:12 Now David took these words to heart, and was very much afraid of Achish the king of Gath. 13 So he changed his behavior before them, pretended madness in their hands, scratched on the doors of the gate, and let his saliva fall down on his beard. << apparently even pretending insanity in order to stay with the neighboring people
phf: i like how in u.s. "pharmacies" you can buy 50mg diphenhydramine as a sleep aid for a few cents a pill, and as an anti-hestamine for $20 for 10
asciilifeform: phf: better still, ordinary cyanoacrylate glue for 50 cents a tube, but 'medical' - for $20+.
danielpbarron: also, you ~do need to fill out paperwork to get pseudoaphedrine : driver's license is required
phf: or that loratadine is available in 50 different branded variations, but its metabolite desloratadine you need a prescription for. every time i'd ask an allergist for one he'll say "just buy <loratadine brand> it's the same thing"
danielpbarron: they scan you licence and make you agree to not use it to make meth
BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: Anyways I think the US patched the "play crazy" exploit
asciilifeform: (cyanoacrylate - 'super' - glue - is quite possibly the single greatest advance in wound suturing ever to happen, works great on everything from paper cut to 7.62x39-through-the-liver)
danielpbarron: BingoBoingo, just an example from history
trinque: plea of insanity results in indefinite psych ward lockup afaik
shinohai: I used superglue when I played guitar for callous enhancement.

asciilifeform: l0l
asciilifeform: just travel with it. single-use syrette of 'superglue' keeps forever.
asciilifeform: i always found it interesting how most american folk don't keep first aid kit, of even the most spartan sort, in their car
asciilifeform: they will keep a man's weight's worth of empty coffee cups and other filth in there.
trinque: that's too independently-minded; they'll 'just call 911'
asciilifeform: but not a box with bandages, disinfectant, tourniquette, anything.
BingoBoingo: No socket set either!
trinque has both!

trinque: might need others
asciilifeform: trinque drives around with spare belts ?

BingoBoingo: Hey, msot cars nowsdays only have one belt
BingoBoingo: So belt isn't some mega imposition

asciilifeform: phf: i signed up, it is ~scam

asciilifeform: the most expensive ones.
phf: oh it's airline dependant?
phf: there's also "global entry" which i haven't looked into
asciilifeform: the part that gets you out of inspections when traveling inside usa
asciilifeform: the global entry thing was spiffy
asciilifeform: when i came back from mircea_popescu's c3, they let me in past customs via the door the pilots use.
phf: fwiw doing using ITA for booking i mostly get delta or american airlines for local flights anyway
asciilifeform: then works
asciilifeform: if you get the 'global' thing, iirc it comes with the other one.
phf: "Includes the TSA Pre✓™ Experience"
asciilifeform: i imagine in 20 yrs we'll be payin' for 'Police Pre✓™ Experience" where if you have membership card, they probe yer rectum with velvet, instead of hedgehog, gloves...
phf: a range of Pre✓™ branded experiences. Taxes Pre✓™ where you fill out one form and pay slightly below average (but still not as much as an accountant would save you), Building Pre✓™ where you fill out one form and can build a mcmanshion on your property (but not any other kind of building), etc.

asciilifeform: trinque: that would cost actual 'turkey dollarz'
asciilifeform: which usa doesn't have.
asciilifeform: pipes dun replace themselves.
phf: philadelphia is all led pipes so they just give you a little paper that lets you test the water for free, and then presumably move "elsewhere"
BingoBoingo: $up vc
deedbot: vc voiced for 30 minutes.
trinque: asciilifeform: those card drainers might be doing a succession of rapid "auth" transactions against the card searching for the limit, then settling the transaction for the highest amount it can find that works
asciilifeform: trinque: i'd imagine this would trigger the standard fraud freeze
asciilifeform: unless, of course, they have exception hardcoded for autoplunderator co.
trinque: yep true, by any route it seems to require someone selling the person out on the back end
asciilifeform: trinque: not necessarily - if the card is prepaid, as these were, you can normally call the # on the back of the card (and often there is even a www form) and determine the balance
asciilifeform: so the gadget may well include this function.

mod6: ok, yeah, i see all of those in the file. lemme see what happened when you were entering 'em. thanks for doing that, might be a weird timing issue or something, not sure.
mircea_popescu: prolly some race conditions i'd guess
mod6: ah, yeah, ok. i see all of 'em came in at nearly the same time. should have handled it, but looks like it got a bit confused.
mod6: i'll check into that.
mod6: cool, your graphs are up :]
mircea_popescu: http://thebitcoin.foundation/tickets/UCI_tickets.html << only 4 tickets oddly.
mod6: oh!
mircea_popescu: maybe not yet long enough though
mircea_popescu: i'd give it a few mins.
mod6: probably because it was related to the timing of entering the tickets.
mod6: the next update ~should~ contain them all.
mod6: yeah, exactly.
mod6: ok refresh, it's updated :]
mircea_popescu: sveet!
mircea_popescu: of course... aren't the arrows backwards ?
mod6: hm. so is ticket 1 an antecedent (parent) of ticket 8?
mircea_popescu: no but hm.
mircea_popescu: shouldn't arrows point from root to fruit ?
mircea_popescu: (do x) -> (so you can do y) -> (so you can be done)
mircea_popescu: did i do them backwards ?
mod6: no. actually.
mod6: so ticket 1 is a saga, which can't be complete until 8 is complete, correct?
BingoBoingo: So who is writing up the Qntra "T Ascendant"?
mircea_popescu: correct.
mod6: ok then that should be fine it kinda looks funny i suppose. but 1 is the root.
mod6: and the 5, 6, 4, 3, are the leaves
mircea_popescu: i guess just takes getting used to
mod6: well and #2
mircea_popescu: any convention's just a convention after all.
mod6: yah, i kinda modled it after how the tree looks for V.
mod6: ooh, i see
mod6: so for ticket 6, i may have put in its antecedent as 7
mod6: and the same for 3, 4, 5
mircea_popescu: well no the other way around ; 7 depends on them
mod6: hmmm ok lemme see
mod6: so yeah, we start with a large chunk, and it breaks down to smaller chunks.
mircea_popescu: aha
mod6: this looks right to me
mod6: i guess this can be re-worked if it invokes too much mental gymnastics.
mod6: but to me looks like everything goes the right way, and dependentcies are in the correct direction
mod6: maybe "ANTECEDENTS" is a bad word here, perhaps "DEPENDENTS"
mod6: that might make it that much more clear.
mod6: your tickets are awesome btw
mod6: wewt!
mod6: and as we start to work on these features, it is meant (at least by me) that tasks and other atomic work will be children of the features.
mod6: BingoBoingo: did you read these tickets? don't miss out on Mr. P.'s vision for TMSR~ here in the story.
mod6: I feel like we've needed this tool for some time as he was only needing a way to track and graph the work required.
BingoBoingo: mod6: Well I asked the question in case you or mircea_popescu wanted to have the honor of writing up T
mod6: oooh
shinohai: mod6 makes Qntra debut
mod6: ;;seen mike_c
gribble: mike_c was last seen in #trilema 6 weeks, 1 day, 20 hours, 40 minutes, and 5 seconds ago: <mike_c> at least you won the 'most famous mircea popescu' award - https://duckduckgo.com/?q=mircea+popescu
mod6: ah. ok.
mod6: btcalpha isn't updating from deedbot ?
mod6: I'm not much of a writer. Obviously.
mod6: lol
mod6: But I'll take a shot at it I guess as long as the proceeds can be donated to The Bitcoin Foundation.
BingoBoingo: mod6: You arrange that with jurov
mod6: Ah, he's the man on that then, ok.
mod6: jdawg: does that work ok?
mod6: he'll get back to us, im sure its fine.
mod6: unless mircea_popescu wants to have the honor, then by all means.
