mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: you mean puta lechera ?
BingoBoingo: Nah, I mean with milk
mircea_popescu: yes but with milk as in her own or not
mircea_popescu: lechera here doesn't mean anything like lecherous. vaca lechera = cow which you can milk.
BingoBoingo: Well that's too be determined by the response for the request
BingoBoingo: Does the leche arrive in the puta, in a pitcher, in cow on leash?
mircea_popescu: !!up giucciardini
deedbot: giucciardini voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: why are they so broken anyway.
BingoBoingo: No idea.
mircea_popescu: it's like "omyGOD, the adults might have noticed me!!! QUICK PANIC PUSH THE ANY BUTTON11eleven"
BingoBoingo: So today's lul is "special counsel" of many leaks Mueller is once again broadening the scope of investigation to find more leaks
BingoBoingo: to leak
mircea_popescu: even the leaks leak on this great sheep of state.
mircea_popescu: maybe we should sell a bitcent, present the us congress with a two ton truck full of leeks.
mircea_popescu: "in loving consideration of your continued leadersheep, dumbasses."
BingoBoingo: Truck driver would likely be arrested. Onion futures are mega-crime in USia
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo hire one of those new googlebots.
BingoBoingo: But that'll spoil some raytheon contract when it makes it past their drone detectors

mircea_popescu: when did you get out ?
Framedragger: still in the cryptobannedmmkay.uk island :) off around ~5-7 july, travel for a bit (but not much), just finished handover at $ukjob, quite happy
Framedragger: brexit negotiations about to start, such timing huehue
Framedragger: will be relatively (entomologically?) interesting to watch from some distance away (i mean, europe is all the very same swamp, sure...)
mircea_popescu: depends, hungary's not so terribru.
mircea_popescu: except for the terrible food, horrible language etc. but primo whores.
mod6: i'll have to check it out
Framedragger: i can believe re. whores! visited briefly. weird language, one of its kind in that branch or something like that, right?
Framedragger: (also iirc .hu gobmint wanted to shut down CEU (this uni in budapest) because it had some unhappy words to say about gobmint or somesuch, but then again maybe CEU is ~liberalshit anyway, so fair)

mircea_popescu: i'd shut down ceu too.
mircea_popescu: anywya, yes, they went rhodesia a decade-ish ago
Framedragger: ah
Framedragger: asciilifeform: unless #3 you meant ssh key to rfc4880 pgp converter (http://siphnos.mkj.lt/datadrop/crap-from-scans-to-be-sorted/ssh-to-pgp.py), but again, prolly not. don't remember seeing any phuctor innards tbh (except for fingerprint algo), but could just be me ☟︎
diana_coman: Framedragger, where are you moving to?
Framedragger: .lt for the summer at least. no master plan, and right now don't feel like having one (first time i feel like that in life)

trinque: after 5th cough pls to get the fuck out.
trinque: and asciilifeform is right, whole foods appears to have an army of subsidiaries, so the profit number on the mothership is a useless fiction.

asciilifeform: phf: yes!
asciilifeform: it.
phf: but re wf, fwiw it's the least expensive of the pantsuit stores. there are much worse examples from both price and "ubuntu foundation" perspective. for example i have Mom's and Yes organic both within walking distance. i used to live next to dawson's in rockville. all of them are more wf than wf.
asciilifeform: lol i have these here also

asciilifeform: on signal/noise etc
trinque: texas has "central market", better selection than wf
asciilifeform: wf is very much 'the lolmart of' 'highend food' in usa
phf: s/n maybe. but if you're trying to buy "raw ingredients", like meat cuts, vegetables, bulk dry goods, wf is the cheapest option. can do safeway for some items, but there's a noticeable drop in quality

mircea_popescu: o, right, because they're all about FIXING the socialist tub so it can CONTINUE FOR LONGER
sina: I knew you'd like it
mircea_popescu: not sure i'd go as far as all that.
asciilifeform: meanwhile, in the era of erudite crackpotteries, https://archive.is/QH2bk >> 'July 28, 2003 // Magic Flight is an algorithm for public key exchange which is based on a lossy commutative mixer constructed from products of primes. The basic operation involves an underlying ring-like algebra which does not have multiplicative inverses, and may not have additive inverses. The elimination of additive inverses (cancellation) is intended
asciilifeform: to prevent standard algebraic methods of solution.'
mircea_popescu: the "does not have" is a remarkably strong claim
asciilifeform does not endorse $subj
asciilifeform: posted for historical purposes.
asciilifeform: ( at some point i'ma get around to sawing the thing open an' seeing if it contains salvageables )
mircea_popescu: i dun get what exactly is the need for another key exchange algo.
asciilifeform: none!!
asciilifeform: that ain't the (potentially) interesting bit.
mircea_popescu: the properties of constructed algebras are the pre-haskell mathwank.
mircea_popescu: and i mean this very literally.
asciilifeform: pre- mainscurrent wank
mircea_popescu: not wank then yet.
mircea_popescu: back when peopel like bannach and bolyai were doing it.
mircea_popescu: much like kandisnky isn't yet wank.
asciilifeform: aha!
asciilifeform: 'wank' in same sense as boolean algebra..
asciilifeform: sorta why asciilifeform goes a-spelunkin' in old maths crackpotteries. every decade back ~doubles the snr
mircea_popescu: just about. problem is that the basis is so narrow you need like five or six doublings.
asciilifeform: http://users.rcn.com/pjsteuert/ << lol, poor lone soldier
asciilifeform: wonder if he's alive still somewhere.
trinque: https://www.linkedin.com/in/james-steuert-528a6525/ << eh?
asciilifeform: who knows if same
asciilifeform: but if yes... belly of the beast. RIP.
