BingoBoingo: <floog> at least it pays for the whale of student debt from the private uni that my parents convinced me was a good investment << Get fiat poor, stop paying, admit powerlessness. You are at rock bottom. Your bankruptcy now is not a financial one, but a moral and spiritual one. However THERE IS A SOLUTION!
BingoBoingo: <floog> emphasis on 'poor' << Next come to believe that a HIGHER POWER (perhaps one your came here to unwrap) can restore you to sanity
BingoBoingo: !!up badD00d
deedbot: badD00d voiced for 30 minutes.
BingoBoingo: badD00d: Who is your daddy and what does he do?
badD00d: my daddy, for your fucking information is.... alive and well
BingoBoingo: <mod6> some proper anal right there << Also great example of the importance of selecting the woman for ergonomics.
badD00d: question for the TRB node running gentlemen
BingoBoingo: Well, that's somewhat informative.
badD00d: will TRB nodes start rejecting blocks whenever BIP91 or other bologna segwit proposals gain the majority hashing power?
BingoBoingo: TRB will continue accepting valid blocks
asciilifeform: and rejection liquishit tomorrow just as it did yesterday.
asciilifeform: *of
asciilifeform: dun matter what kind.
badD00d: right, and I respect that. I guess I am wondering when you think the majority of hashing power will start agreeing on non-legit shit blocks?
badD00d: like at some point, the shitty masses are going to start consuming their fake shitty blocks.
mircea_popescu: so ?
mircea_popescu: they're consuming teh fiat dollars as it is, doesn't seem to have much impact on anything.
badD00d: I am wondering if you have an estimation as to when this will be and as a second questions (if TRB nodes will be the ONLY non-shit accepting nodes, or if you think there are other groups of people running nodes that will side with your nodes and continue rejecting shit
mircea_popescu: your question is ill posed. if tomorrow a large enough collection of idiots decides to call making hooky "bitcoin", this will be great and good and entirely uninteresting for bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: if the us fed starts printing "one hundred bitcoin" bills instead of the current one hundred dollar bills, this'll also do ~nothing as far as nayone is concerned.
mircea_popescu: the notion that bitcoin can somehow by stolen by name is so ridoinculous as to betray its ustardian origins. bitcoin is not a name.
BingoBoingo: badD00d: TRB now WILL accept segwit blocks, but it will not parse the segwit'd portion as anything other than "anyone can spend"
floog: BingoBoingo: I'm going to keep paying my bills, i'd rather not get rammed by the USG when it comes after its money. im cool with everything else though
mircea_popescu: apparently the "it REALLY doesn't matter what you do" point is entirely incomprehensible to teh esl.
mircea_popescu: floog the only reason you're not getting rammed is that you don't have anything worth stealing.
BingoBoingo: floog: Nah, that's the thing. If you make yourself fiat poor THEY en-PRIVILEDGE YOU
BingoBoingo: The solution is get poor, stack up some turkeys, and blow the joint
badD00d: anyway, thanks for putting up with my questions
floog: where do get turkeys? where do run after turkeys acquired?
mircea_popescu: ikr ?
mircea_popescu: meanwhile at dedicated slut camp, http://68.media.tumblr.com/78838a7a2be17a5c7d1032186851423c/tumblr_myflcjUUTE1qjhn09o1_400.gif
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu or anybody ever so far bothered to count the total coin presently sitting in 'anyonecanspend' ?
BingoBoingo: !http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=turkey+dollars
asciilifeform: probably even nao a pretty good haul for the first serious miner to break cartel and unwind the 'soft' liquishit
mircea_popescu: (echo "obase=16" ; cat fct.txt) | bc >> fact-hex.txt works as expected to convert btw.
asciilifeform: oughta, neh
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform sorta job each miner gotta do for himself neh ?
mircea_popescu: eventually, i expect they will.
asciilifeform: i can already almost smell the shat pants
mircea_popescu: thing is, time builds only one way on that.
mircea_popescu: the taller the tower of shit, the certainer the doom.
asciilifeform: and the moar spectacular.
mircea_popescu: indeed.
asciilifeform: though i imagine the plan of the pantshits is to cement the 'soft' fork as hard, somehow
asciilifeform: before day-x
mircea_popescu: eh, plans.
mircea_popescu: "we'll call it classic and pretend like it's totally different in our fakenews rags"
mircea_popescu: that's a plan.
asciilifeform: iirc prb already is written to reject blocks that attempt to 'illicitly' spend the perfectly legitimately anyonecanspendolade
asciilifeform: so technically already forked, long ago, only latently.
mircea_popescu: sooooo ?
asciilifeform: petrol poured, only needs match.
mircea_popescu: by this understanding of forking, everyone running a bitcoin node on a box that's lost internet connection "forked"
asciilifeform: 1 d00d with borked modem is 1 d00d , 9000 is a northkr
asciilifeform: possibly model is the latter.
BingoBoingo: KKKoreaCoin
mircea_popescu: but anyway, it's quite evident and not a matter open to much dispute that a whole lot of not-really-into-bitcoin barnacles have been steadily accumulating, at least in their own esitmation, since 2012 or so.
mircea_popescu: they get scraped off, new sets come on, it's the fate of ship on open seas.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-07-13#1683139 ie "the bitcoin banking cartel" very much apropos. ☝︎
mircea_popescu: ie, people will drop ~a specific form~ of a stupid idea just as soon as it's literally beaten from their cold, dead hands, AND NEVER BEFORE.

BingoBoingo: OMG RECRASHING
mircea_popescu: o noes i bought at 1950 should i sell ???
BingoBoingo: I dunno must consult WAPO
mircea_popescu: i only did it to get ethereum tokens
BingoBoingo: WAPO Returns headline: "Swole Jeff Bezos Is Exactly the Meme the World Needed"
mircea_popescu: are still available do ytou know ?
mircea_popescu: could bezos swole russia ?
BingoBoingo: Apparently according to his fake news outlet: "Most people know that online firearm sales create big loopholes that allow customers to bypass background checks—but who knew e-commerce pioneer Jeff Bezos was hawking guns like these?! The Amazon CEO and Washington Post owner showed up to an Idaho conference in a skintight T-shirt last week, displaying a set of arms most reasonable observers would classify as assault weapons."
mircea_popescu: o we're down to "most people know" ? i thought usg shares were firmly at "everyone knows" ?
BingoBoingo: Well, gotta probe vanity publishing ass further: "Bezos used to be a giant baby-faced, Kevin-Spacey-faced nerd who sold textbooks on a website and looked ecstatic merely to be alive. Now, he’s buying up bougie grocery stores and publishing a newspaper with a metal-ass tagline. He’s in the putting businesses out of business business, and he’s got the muscle and shaved head to prove it."
BingoBoingo: Apparently pantsuits like to give the rimjob to the boss?
mircea_popescu: did the guy's payola mcnuggets & happy meals not make it this month or wtf is their problem.
BingoBoingo: Apparently they are sexually harassing the boss to get him fired? Or mebbe he used owning a newspaper to ghostwrite the thing.
asciilifeform: lolwat, his own rag printed this?!
mircea_popescu: see how independent it is ?
BingoBoingo: Yes, and in 18 months Trump will go from equalling Bezos in Senator count to clearly passing Bezos
BingoBoingo: So many Turkeys!!!
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: You gotta read it for what it is, appeal to his re-adolescent ego.
BingoBoingo: i.e. Bezos is on Trenbolone
asciilifeform: wai would a richd00d take ballshrinkelixir
mircea_popescu: wai would he wear a tshirt.
BingoBoingo: Because Bezos sees pantsuit in disarray and wants to become a bull in move to capture pantsuit for self instead of being its bitch boy
mircea_popescu: the "appear hamplanet harmless" ploy not even bad approach to that goal.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> wai would a richd00d take ballshrinkelixir << Apparently some users find shrank balls more comfortable, also HCG can be used to preven the shrink
mircea_popescu: gives "going to the shrink" a whole new layer.
BingoBoingo: Anyways wears shirt because horrifying cystic acne. t-shirt because cotton is absorbent
BingoBoingo predicts trend of pantsuit boy CEO's getting into this sort of artificial masculinity and calling it "biohacking"
mircea_popescu: i can see it.
mircea_popescu: the other half of the faux dilemma. "transsexual or biohacker ?"
mircea_popescu: "gotta pick one or the other!"
BingoBoingo: It's a trilema: transexual, biohacker, or transmayo unsexual
mircea_popescu: no that's the faux dilemma for females.
mircea_popescu: "lich or greaseblob ? MUST PICK ONE!!1"
BingoBoingo: Nah, it's the third gender
mircea_popescu: they're all tired fucking genders.
BingoBoingo: Nah, trenbolone isn't lich sort of thing. Definitely a "burn brighter, faster" sort of thing. Cattle feedlot stuff.
BingoBoingo: Gotta get the steers to put on size without getting tough
mircea_popescu: ic
BingoBoingo: A marginally life shortening "Who wants to be 90 anyways" deal
BingoBoingo: Essentially boosting the engine's compression without upgrading the plumbing, promotes cardiac and psychiatric deaths
BingoBoingo: In the feedlot the doped of course are in supermarket before those outcomes can happen.
mircea_popescu: i kinda like the idea tbh.
mircea_popescu: gotta cut the total male-years somehow, and chem cockcage prolly even cheaper than the steel item.
BingoBoingo: Of all the fake testosterones, Tren is the one that doesn't require supplementing with testosterone in order to allow boners, so popular. Does work as male birth control though.
mircea_popescu: can i donate so usians take this stuff ?
BingoBoingo: Not yet.
mircea_popescu: gotta get some free tren clinics going.
mircea_popescu: it seems to me like it'd be a human right.
BingoBoingo: Well, there's manosphere community corners that promote the artificial testosteroning as the exact thing girly birth control is. Except with cool weight gain.
trinque: seems pretty gay, according to my brief googling. wall of faggy before / after pics.
BingoBoingo: Anyways, it doesn't actually do magic swole imparting without at least some exercise.

mircea_popescu: indeed
mircea_popescu: correct play, too. he really has no interest in putting in the work to try and salvage the nonsense ; and the pantsuits will have a hell of a time arguing that "we put on the books laws that don't work because we expect they can be constantly patched as a matter of course -- and this is fine"

BingoBoingo: idea how these aliens work.
mircea_popescu: ^ word. i have seen kids drink these days. a) it's all beer and b) they think slightly buzzed = plastered.
mircea_popescu: vast majority of female teenagers who go to school that i've encountered past years have never been drunk.
phf: asciilifeform: so test chan is hard written in code, in a defvar, but there's a config (essentially a setq ...) that's supposed to override it. the config was missing (which i ~vaguely~ remember maybe accidentally doing myself). so in any case defvar should've stayed consistent no matter what. i'm not sure ~how~ it could get reset without a complete reload of an instance or an explicit setq
mircea_popescu: phf really the only important knob after such event is to be able to set "likely bug" or "likely messed with".
asciilifeform: phf: completereload (i.e. uininvited power cycle?) seems likely

phf: asciilifeform: nah, definitely not. there's too much state in "screen", that's been the same since forever.
phf: it's weird enough that i'm going to spin up a new btcbase instance. this would be a really weird way to mess with it (why not nuke everything, etc.) and i'm sure i could've done something carelessly a while ago, and the things only now caught up, but i'd rather not experiment further.
mircea_popescu: the "really weird way" argument is not very productive because enemy is both inept and fearful.
mircea_popescu: that's when people do really weird things.
asciilifeform: log bot seems like a pathetic choice of target, also
mircea_popescu: depends if you're trying to learn or do.
asciilifeform: ( why not something that ain't duplicated in 4 places in real time )
asciilifeform: and/or something with even 1 secret

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: plox to expand, this is too deep a koan for my small brain
mircea_popescu: ok, let's start small. what's the one thing the lover needs to know in order to safely visit the cheating wife ?
asciilifeform: when d00d is not home ?
mircea_popescu: right.
mircea_popescu: "in order to masquerade the husband, youthful aspirant needs knowledge of what... husband doesn't know"
mircea_popescu: what is the basis of adolescent pretense to autonomy, independence and adulthood generally ?
mircea_popescu: a keen awareness of... what their parents... don't notice.
mircea_popescu: the things you don't know, if structured, become an alt-you.
mircea_popescu: whether anyone steps into that form or not, the form IS.
mircea_popescu: that is why it is so trivially easay for me to engage/defeat random pantsuit-minded kiddo straggling in here. his darkness is obviously structured.

trinque had fail2ban off for a while, and looked like there were mostly just two "chinese" IPs chewing on the box. when I re-enabled fail2ban, got moar IPs chewing, either by happenstance or one turd circumventing fail2ban.
mircea_popescu: is the intimation here that fail2ban somehow communicates to the enemy ?
trinque: just that whichever auto-ssh-chewer sybils it up when a particular IP gets banned
mircea_popescu: aaa
mircea_popescu: this is likely, actuaklly, chinese white man's computer liberation farm only forks on ban
mircea_popescu: (this btw is quite possibly actual govt project ; seeing how drastically -ev it is)
asciilifeform: trinque: i get these 'chinese' every day
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, to continue upstream : education is an effort to resolve the unknowledge-sybil problem. you take in the girl and know full well what she doesn't know, whip her, fuck her, not necessarily in this order, until she gets to the place where you don't know what she doesn't know, at which point she's an adult slave.
asciilifeform: contemplated setting up a honeypot for them to see what is the payload, but ars longa
mircea_popescu: which strictly means that she carries an indelible if invisible brand now, ie, that you could pick her out of any number of identical body clones.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the knowledge problem is not so simple as pictured here. husband may be at work but built camera into the floor long before he met the whore. phf may know re box but not care ( asciilifeform for instance regards contents of hdd of rental servers as sacrificial , esp after theft of the original dulap , etc )
mircea_popescu: which is why it says "knowledge of what husband doesn't know".
mircea_popescu: if he knows and you think he doesn't... guess what. now he'll sybil you.
asciilifeform: unless 'husband' is stupid, this knowledge is in principle unavailable.
mircea_popescu: because now HE knows what you don;t know. etc.
asciilifeform: this yes.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but this is the point of all art and all science -- to avoid being stupid.
mircea_popescu: precisely because such knowledge is in principle unavailable, ie, if you got fucked it's always because you stumbled.
mircea_popescu: know the joke ?
asciilifeform: hm?
mircea_popescu: rooster sees hen and runs towards her. hen reflexively starts running away. after a short space the hen thinks "if i stop he'll think me a slut, if i keep running he'll think me stupid... how about i stumble."
asciilifeform: ah this yea
mircea_popescu: yeah.
mircea_popescu: if you got fucked... at some point you "stumbled".

trinque: ohey you found your passphrase eh?
mircea_popescu: ag3nt_zer0 the point of a private key is that only you know it.
ag3nt_zer0: yes
ag3nt_zer0: but am i just to assume that ANY key generated is legitimate and will work when time comes?
mircea_popescu: so you know, run a proper node, make a new address there, send whatever coinbase/bitaddress/whatever held funds to it and be done.
ag3nt_zer0: keypair sorry
mircea_popescu: ag3nt_zer0 you are to assume that no "generated" key is legitimate or will work reliably at any point.
ag3nt_zer0: yeah
mircea_popescu: get your own node going, have it keep your coin.
ag3nt_zer0: trinque it was just !!v instead of the old !v
mircea_popescu: if this is too inconvenient/complicated/expensiuve whatever, sell your bitcoin, now, and put the fiat in a fiat bank.
ag3nt_zer0: mircea_popescu... yes I need to do this... is it more expedient for a newb like me to attempt this on my old G5 or should I try it on another rasbpi?
trinque: ag3nt_zer0: really ought to keep up with the logs instead of doing these drive-bys

asciilifeform: ag3nt_zer0: don't be surprised, if waiting for aug1 or whatever 'wediditreddit event' to get your coin out of a gox, if they only offer to give it back in shitcoin ( or not at all )
asciilifeform: just say no to goxes.
ag3nt_zer0: yes I am trying to get out by tomorrow asciilifeform
ag3nt_zer0: all I can say is thank god I found this sanctuary of the guardians heh... otherwise who knows what I would be doing with my coins right now...
asciilifeform: i actually never understood this, even before encountering mircea_popescu et al :
asciilifeform: why is it that the early bitcoin folx had this 'burning hole in pocket' problem
asciilifeform: from where comes the 'who knows what I would be doing with my coins right now' ?

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform elstards are educated from birth to value things only by reference to the herd. it is not important for them to have a great fucktoy at home ; but it is very important for them to take home the girl all the other dorks imagine would be a great accomplishment to take home.
mircea_popescu: which is why when i showed something awful the "here, you can pay people to do things to themselves" it BURNEDDDDDDD
mircea_popescu: not simply because it empowers rapist-racist-pre-trump-trump-me, annoying as that may be ; but because it puts in question the integrity of their valuation mechanism.
mircea_popescu: "maybe mp paid everyuone around me to tell me they'd be all impressed if i married the hairbrush???"
mircea_popescu: to which the only correct answer is the obvious, "of course he did lol"
mircea_popescu: so now -- why owning a ferrari is nothing, unles you can DO things with it, such as ride it around a clump of "your friends" ?
mircea_popescu: it's a strange perversion of capitalism (whereby if it's not useful it's not worth jack) into displayism (whereby if it's not being seen it's not worth having). so you gotta... DO things with your bitcoin for your bitcoin to exist (not individually, but categorically -- a store of value "does not exist" in this addled worldview.)
asciilifeform: i thought it was from old fiatola habit ('spend it nao or it evaporates anyway')
mircea_popescu: i do not think so. these schmucks never had any money, they're the poor generation. their parents, yes, but these are the djb street urchins not the djbs.

mircea_popescu: yep, you guessed it, at least a quarter of the riders were taping away at any point.
asciilifeform: lol!!
asciilifeform: and not 1 fell off ?
mircea_popescu: this with the horse underneath! which you know, needs your attention.
mircea_popescu: very fucking disconcerted horses.

trinque: ah lol, too bad
mircea_popescu: and in general you know, "i'm not interested in LOOKING at the horses, but where could i snap a selfie from ?"
mircea_popescu: but the truly mindboggling thing, to me, was that they were all fine riders. somehow. i do not know how. feet correctly in the saddle, not one, all, the men, children, women, etc. proper grips on at least half the reins. and so on.
mircea_popescu: and YET...
mircea_popescu: see, cuz if they looked like "u of maryland goes on horseback", half the schmucks seated backwards or whatnot, then it'd make sense. but how did these people manage to acquire riding skills with the constant tapdistraction ?
mircea_popescu: it must be from a time before, i've nothing else.

asciilifeform: aah
asciilifeform: there is some confusion re subj, and i fear that i created it :
asciilifeform: 1) schneier 'applied crypto' 1st ed : blue soft cover.
asciilifeform: 2) schneier 'applied crypto' 2nd ed , 1996 : red cover
asciilifeform: 2 is NOT censored edition, it is more or less same as 1.
asciilifeform: but there also exists a 3 :
asciilifeform: 'cryptography engineering' . dark blue/blackish cover
floog: is 1st edition censored?
asciilifeform: (2010). and it is ENTIRELY different book, largely fluff, 0 mathematics, thin
asciilifeform: 1 and 2 are interchangeable for all purposes afaik
asciilifeform: 3 is rubbish
asciilifeform: 'applied crypto' is moar of an encyclopaedia than anything else
asciilifeform: incidentally, the mega-b00k from which schneier et al plagiarize ~everything, is : 'handbook of applied crypgography', crc press
asciilifeform: by vanstone et al
asciilifeform: *cryptography
floog: so, is vanstone > schneier?
asciilifeform: imho.
asciilifeform: heavier on the mathematics, lighter on the chitchat

mircea_popescu: read both, what's the trouble.

mircea_popescu: anyway, to revisit whaack 's earlier lament : never trust the man who says "don't worry your pretty head, sweet" unless you're quite meaning to be whored out ; because meaning or not, it's gonna happen.
whaack: i'm not advocating one doesn't make an effort to learn, I'm just pointing out that the material covered does not "fit in head" (as alf puts it) very easily and thus the main thing gotten from that book, for me at least, is the deep complexity involved with some of these schemes
trinque: loving mother nature says get a bigger head, or die
mircea_popescu: what fits in head depends also on the structuring of the head.
mircea_popescu: which you know, occurs through contact with complexity and labour upon it.
mircea_popescu: for instance : alf gets so livid when certain classes of events occur because they contradict assumptions he's made upon which he built the particular head-fitter he uses. they'd better hold, or else the whole thing is in danger. specifically : a lot less could be fit in head.
