mircea_popescu: that woman killed someone ?
asciilifeform: supposedly
asciilifeform: and with 133337 poison
mircea_popescu: i dunno how leet it is, if it alerts the victim
asciilifeform: well noshit in our native 15th century poison was to avoid 'alert the victim.' but today apparently it is for putting on show. e.g., polonium.
mircea_popescu: eh, everything with these faggots is about putting on a show.
asciilifeform: speaking of which, the show goes on, https://archive.is/bmtZj >> 'Russian intelligence officials made repeated contact' etc.
mircea_popescu: myeah. things are pretty simple : either peace with russia and therefore war with china ; or else bickering with russia while china continues to fatten unmolested.
mircea_popescu: the women's state very much wants the latter.
asciilifeform: 'Crimea was TAKEN by Russia during the Obama Administration. Was Obama too soft on Russia?' -- mr.t, twatter, today.

mircea_popescu: watch nobody on the left engage the point.

asciilifeform: 'I spent a cold night huddled in a grimy kitchen, befogged with eye-watering quantities of cigarette smoke, while young PKK militants lectured me on the crisis of late capitalism and the American media's sexual exploitation of women.'
mircea_popescu: again with this ?
mircea_popescu: women aren't sexually exploited. this is THE problem of the west. wtf is wrong with the coolies.
asciilifeform: 'Franceschi was vague about his background, but wore a Mao pin, owned a fortune in Bitcoin and spoke seven languages, including Arabic and Kurmanji. With no military experience, he was sent to the front line, where Kurdish defenders were outnumbered perhaps five to one...'
asciilifeform: quite a yarn.
mircea_popescu: lol. i ran into a few "owned a fortune in bitcoin" dorks here, also.
mircea_popescu: apparently it's a very convenient narrative for the adolescent underclass. the mystery and intrigue of being mp seduces them.
mircea_popescu: anyway. judging by the orwellian reaction of the bedwetters, iraq has every chance of turning into a sort of 1920s spain.

mircea_popescu: didja see the "mental health care professionals warn" bit ?
mircea_popescu: i lulzed.
asciilifeform: which?
mircea_popescu: https://archive.is/j93ke
asciilifeform: lol!
mircea_popescu: you know ?
mircea_popescu: "the country's mental health organisation".
mircea_popescu: it's not just "laws" in the style of "nobody read this 2k page pile of crap" ; it's not just "regulations", in the style of "whatever random czar and his bureaucracy came up with". there's a struggle to add a further red guard of the revolution! THE COUNTRY'S ORGANISATIONS!
mircea_popescu: "Silence from the country’s mental health organizations has been due to a self-imposed dictum about evaluating public figures (the American Psychiatric Association’s 1973 Goldwater Rule). But this silence has resulted in a failure to lend our expertise to worried journalists and members of Congress at this critical time. We fear that too much is at stake to be silent any longer." or in plain words, "we on the left are aga
mircea_popescu: inst rape for as long as the rapists are mostly on the right ; are against violence for as long as we're more likely to be on the receiving end ; and believe the goldwater rule should be respected at all times it prevents the ousting of a libertard!"
asciilifeform: 'attacking facts and those who convey them (journalists, scientists)' << gold
mircea_popescu: tru fax!
mircea_popescu: i mean, literally, that introduction is exactly on par with the misspelled "petition" linked earlier. "there is a rule agains what we're trying to do which is unfortunate (for the rule!) because we wanna do it anyway!"
mircea_popescu: wtf ?
mircea_popescu: basically the whole dynamic is, "child noticed adults tend to be rule-bound, is trying to get maxcake out of it"
mircea_popescu: and obviously since hacking kids up and feeding the remains to sewer rats is taboo, there's no need to consider anything along the lines of "bitch, that rule is there so your dumb ass may be excused from immediate slaughter"
shinohai: !~later tell mod6 http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/70L1b/?raw=true
jhvh1: shinohai: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: the more i think of it the more i'm satisfied this is the ur-underpinning. once women manage to get the slaughter of children taboo-ified, all the rest of the rot flows from there.

mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes "universal" anything breaks specificity of diddling.
mircea_popescu: there shall be no man-made universals. it's a heathen practice, and it is also inhuman. this means : no "global state" ; no "global id", not for women, not for their children, cows, computers, whatever other livestock.
mircea_popescu: and so on and so forth.
mircea_popescu: no "global money", which is what the idiocy of "scaling bitcoin for africa" is all about.
mircea_popescu: no "global alphabet" which is why utf may not exist. pretty much everything relates to this refusal of the golden calf.

asciilifeform: relatedly vintage bernstein, http://archive.is/xZZmb >> ''Some people argued that randomness generation should be centralized--- whether in the OS or hypervisor or CPU---and fixed at that central location if it doesn't work properly. Other people argued that each library and application should defend itself against failures of the centralized mechanism. There actually seem to be three positions...''
mircea_popescu: as per the very apt asciilifeform observation, rng flux === tty flux. there should be one rng per human, more or less.
mircea_popescu: that's the proper degree of centralization.
asciilifeform was reading up on design & history of '/dev/random' and reeling at the lunacy of the very idea of multi-proggy rng pool
asciilifeform: it isn't much less ridiculous than ~multi-user~ one
asciilifeform: what i ~did~ find was a tremendous volume of deliberate, artful obscurantism, e.g. the german linked earlier.
asciilifeform: in other noose, i realized that http://btcbase.org/log/2017-02-14#1613906 is a bad idea.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-02-14 19:19 asciilifeform: specifically, for every byte you intend to send, you instead send two: x, y. which you generate by obtaining rng byte r, and payload byte b, and x := b xor r, y := r
asciilifeform: if enemy knows that a particular (x,y) come out to a block of, e.g., 0, (via known plaintext), he can store (x,y) for future use
asciilifeform: however what i do not know is whether it is a worse idea than ~block ciphers per se~ !
asciilifeform: because enemy can do this just as easily with, e.g., first two blocks (and iv) of AES-CBC.
asciilifeform: in other lulz, 'Buffett told Charlie Rose in a recent interview that he loaded up on $12 billion worth of stock since the election through the end of January.'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform this is why you want large blocks. the odds of x, y recurring is given by the size of x and y
asciilifeform: of crapple stock.
mircea_popescu: well, 12 billion ~worth~ is a misnomer, but sure.
mircea_popescu: somebody gotta buy all the dumpage.
mircea_popescu: old man from omaha seems a perfect candidate.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in the scheme i described, and using, e.g., serpent, the p of an (x,y) recurring is ~0

mircea_popescu: though they're trying to corrupt narrative with trump also. just, they're so deeply racist that they won't believe a "citizen" could possibly be anything but insane. sluggish schizophrenia ftw!
