mircea_popescu: "this is not a normal launch like any other scamcoin because we would really like it not to be, and reality shouldn't get in the way of what we want"
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo yeah not bad.
mircea_popescu: in other lulz, silent watcher that connects to no channels got klined earlier. "[465] You are banned from this server- Please do not spam users or channels on freenode. If in error, please contact kline@freenode.net. (2016/10/29 22.35)"
BingoBoingo: lol
mircea_popescu: it's however not banned or anything. just another unexpected failure mode.
mircea_popescu: just in case phf trinque shinohai & crew ever think they got to the last test case or something.

mircea_popescu: 3k lv, ie the largest this week.
asciilifeform: he can 'win' a la gore with this.
mircea_popescu: lol gore.
phf: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-10-29#1560175 << most likely, that's ed emshwiller a somewhat famous pulp cover illustrator (can recognize by the "emsh" tag)☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-10-29 22:34 asciilifeform: (actually i could swear i saw that pic on a '90s sf cover, when they were being printed on that yellow toilet paper thing)
phf: i actually picked up a 1964 pulp print of pkd's the simulacra with his illustration at a tiny "mystery books" bookstore in philadelphia, that since got closed
mircea_popescu: there is actually a senator mike crapo.
mircea_popescu: there really is no bottom of lulz.
BingoBoingo: There's a sort of asymtote that roughly approximates one. The geometry of lulz is not euclidean.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-10-30#1560205 << recall, they have this thing in usa where it is at least theoretically possible for candidate to get 80+% of votes and lose☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-10-30 02:04 mircea_popescu: lol gore.
mircea_popescu: 80%, no.
mircea_popescu: it's possible to win the popular vote by a slight margin and still lose the election, but that's all.
mircea_popescu: also, tittybounce. http://67.media.tumblr.com/c047b309b177184d9ee2abebd3f65e96/tumblr_nj6lmoFgXI1ry595bo1_400.gif
asciilifeform: lel that street looks almost exactly like asciilifeform's
mircea_popescu: and most others. cheap fencing etc.
asciilifeform: well cheap usa.
mircea_popescu: gore's thing was ~500k votes, ie 0.5% sorta thing
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu apparently has it
mircea_popescu: also that was like the largest such effect in 120 or os years
asciilifeform: though theoretically the 'electors' are not bound by the votes, and could in principle elect whoever. though afaik this has not yet happened.
mircea_popescu: you're thinking primaries electors.
asciilifeform: nah
asciilifeform: the proper ones
asciilifeform: https://archive.is/HfNzw
mircea_popescu: lol at all the derps accidenta-voting
mircea_popescu: anyway, an elector rewrite of the election would be pretty much the lulziest outcome possible.
asciilifeform: in other lulz, spotted this with own eyes, http://www.loper-os.org/pub/clitler.jpg
mircea_popescu: this is good for the usd.
asciilifeform: gotta love the 'step right up, sell yer vote! for (imaginary) 2k usd'
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: they have ap oint though : this debt holds "all of us" back - if college numbers were released from this peg in reality the gdp could go as high as 500% the first month.
mircea_popescu: why not. mit is worth 500 billiards as well as it's worth 50 billions.
mircea_popescu: and all this would be good for the usd.
asciilifeform: and why not promise idiots 20k, or 200, or...
mircea_popescu: ikr?
mircea_popescu: all numbers are good for usd.
asciilifeform: not as if it will have to be paid in actual money
mircea_popescu: of course, there's some sense in all of that. eg, why exactly is college debt not refinanceable ?
asciilifeform: same reason (most) tax debt in usa is not.
mircea_popescu: and also pushing the "college can charge whatever it wants - but it will never get more than 10% of the student's future pay, so whatevs" is pretty much the only way out of the mess.
mircea_popescu: if a college education helps, fine. and if not - a well.
mircea_popescu: o look, also wants to double the americorps payola. weren't they taking it back from suckers 10 years later recently ?
mircea_popescu: that's a great govt style scam.
asciilifeform: they were taking back iraq 'bonus'.
mircea_popescu: "ship to irak tomorrow, and if they don't blow you up we'll give you 20k". wait 10 years after which "oh btw, only kidding about those 20k. whatcha gonna do about it bitch, NOT GO TO IRAK NO MOAR ? AHAHAHAHA"
asciilifeform: (when i worked at flying a desk for u.s. army, there were posters hanging in the lobby promising 25-35k re-enlistment bonus for DESK FLYERS, with the logic that they CHANCE iraq)
mircea_popescu: morelike with the logic that they by and large couldn't hire people above 98 iq even with the bonuses.
asciilifeform: oh btw you get it, typically, up-front, goes straight to the debt collectors.
asciilifeform: (to whom else.)
asciilifeform: the remaining pennies - to dependapotamus.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: they recruit schoolboys, and, typically, not the best arithmetizers, no.
mircea_popescu: i wonder what male dependos are like.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, i shall bbl.
