mircea_popescu: did anyone ever write something not-idiotic on that medium idiocy ?
ben_vulpes: look at wannabe-hacker-oriented linux distros like Arch and Gentoo, which refuse to supply an installer and instead require users to retype the source code of an installer script from the manual
ben_vulpes: dude's a wannabe alan kay, writing on a smaller shittier blogspot which is about to implode due to implementing the "three free articles per month" idiocy
ben_vulpes: time for that died ~2014
mircea_popescu: ie, "something we lifted from 2010 trilema and forgot to SAY SO"
mircea_popescu: ah the good ole days of http://trilema.com/2011/hello-nyt-goodbye-nyt/

ReadErr: i clicked that one
ReadErr: if its OTP it prolly ruined it
ReadErr: wheres the info on the workflow
danielpbarron: alright, you can !!balance to check it
ReadErr: whats the 2 paste for?
danielpbarron: mine was indeed the second one, yours was the first
ReadErr: oh 1sec ill copy it for you
danielpbarron: i'd suggest you leave it in there tho, as the fee to send is a somewhat significant chunk of that
mircea_popescu: !!reputation ReadErr
deedbot: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/2iiJ0/?raw=true
ReadErr: yea man the other day
ReadErr: i had to send $2

danielpbarron: poor ppl problems, or should i say non republic problems
ReadErr: lol wont deny that
ReadErr: whats ecu ?
mircea_popescu: eulora coppers.
mircea_popescu: what do you do, other than very legit websites, ReadErr ?
trinque: danielpbarron: only one OP returns an OTP
ReadErr: mircea_popescu: i do a lot of stuff
danielpbarron: yeah i figured
ReadErr: my very.legit.website was a late night + namecheap sale result
trinque: that said having it address people directly is on the stack
ReadErr: i got sucked into buying so many domains for cheap
ReadErr: then when renewals came around
ReadErr: they where like 30x more expensive
mircea_popescu: heh
ReadErr: I do a electronics (embedded/pcb)
ReadErr: lunix
mircea_popescu: aha!
mircea_popescu: that may turn out to be useful.
ReadErr: ya its fun, brought a few things to market
ReadErr: mostly a ton of opensource hardware though
mircea_popescu would link fg, if there was a page ;/
ReadErr: https://github.com/brotronics
danielpbarron: wait i got a page

ReadErr: its mostly just for fun
ReadErr: its all good
ReadErr: i just like to do things myself, like electronics stuff, its cheaper from china
ReadErr: but when i do my own, i can make it how i want
ReadErr: rather than depending on someone else to

danielpbarron: ReadErr, i bought them from No Such lAbs
ReadErr: whats under the shields ?
danielpbarron: i bought out the entire first run
ben_vulpes: ReadErr: what are those pcbs?
asciilifeform: ReadErr: see the archive link, has photo
danielpbarron: i've been sending out any non prime numbered units
ReadErr: ben_vulpes: few flight controllers
ben_vulpes: fixed and quad it looked like from the photos?
ReadErr: heres something i did kinda recently...
ReadErr: ya
ben_vulpes: that skateboard looks like a ripping good time
ben_vulpes: schematics for the fixedwing flight controller anywhere?

ReadErr: a magnet goes on the back
ReadErr: and a piece of wire + magnet on wraps around it
ReadErr: and it will charge a 1s batt but also provide 5v output from 1 battery
ReadErr: and fits in a pouch on keychain
ben_vulpes: useful!
ReadErr: not really lol
ReadErr: but i made it for fun
ben_vulpes: well for tiny usb thingers
ReadErr: ben_vulpes: ya i got some stuff up FC wise

ReadErr: so timecop did the white one
ReadErr: but the pinout was kinda shit
ReadErr: so i just did mine to piss him off and make it more usable, but did it smaller w/ more stuff
ben_vulpes: heh neat, so how do you use one of these fcs?
ReadErr: well, thats pretty flexible
ReadErr: theres a few codesbases depending on what you are trying to do
ReadErr: some are focused more on racing/performance
ReadErr: others autonomy, like gps navigation
ReadErr: but they are typically stm32
ReadErr: (ARM)
ben_vulpes: gotta wire IMUs etc to it or is that all on the pcb?
ReadErr: its all on the pcb
ReadErr: btw
ReadErr: any recommendations for a photohost?
ReadErr: i dropped smugmug since they pissed me off
ben_vulpes: run a server, set up apache?
ReadErr: and dont have most of my stuff uploaded
ben_vulpes: costs like 5 bucks per month
ReadErr: ya i was trying to avoid the self hosted route
ReadErr: i have a bunch of vps
ben_vulpes: word
danielpbarron: ReadErr, feel free to provide a service :D
mircea_popescu: buy a box.
ReadErr: but its more so I want them somewhere just incase
ReadErr: i dont know which gallery to run though
danielpbarron: i'd rather pay you than use imgur
ReadErr: software wise
mircea_popescu: !#s mp-wp
a111: 96 results for "mp-wp", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=mp-wp
ReadErr: smugmug was nice but
ReadErr: they changed how they did photolinks
ben_vulpes: sounds like you want a holistic personal backup strategy, really gotta go bolting shit to the side with galleries as well?
ReadErr: so it replaced all the urls with smugmug rather than my domain
ben_vulpes: dude it's just going to keep happening. sv baitnswitch.
ReadErr: ben_vulpes: nah i just need something with a good mobile app though too
ben_vulpes: what why
ReadErr: since getting them from phone -> web is a pain through a browser
danielpbarron: step 1) get the user base. step 2) ??? step 3) fuck it, change everything maybe we get moneyz
ReadErr: smugmug had a great mobile app
ReadErr: which is why i originally used them
ReadErr: but they quit dev on it, stopped working with new phone updates
ben_vulpes: ReadErr: has an iphone with the soldered in storage probably, cannot pull sd card?
ReadErr: lol
ReadErr: nah but theres something to be said about just tapping the screen twice
ben_vulpes: shake it hard it may come out, i hear the rohs crap is crap
ReadErr: and having it upload to a specific folder
ReadErr: rohs is crap
ReadErr: <-- all leaded
ben_vulpes: regulation is crap.
ben_vulpes: ReadErr: where do you get properly leaded solder?
ReadErr: amazon,
ReadErr: i use kester noclean
ben_vulpes: that easy, huh?
ben_vulpes: solved child enslavement and leaded solder equally well teh pantsuits
mircea_popescu: heh, apparently everyone hates nonleaded
ReadErr: https://www.amazon.com/Kester-No-Clean-Flux-Core-Solder/dp/B004X4KSZQ
ReadErr: this series
ReadErr: but a lot of smt stuff i do with paste
ReadErr: mircea_popescu: is mp-wp some wordpress ?
ben_vulpes: ReadErr: how much of a hassle is it to throw waypoints or actuator setpoints at one of those fcs of yours while its flying?
danielpbarron: ReadErr, i can send it to you. i got it from shinohai
ReadErr: ben_vulpes: well, with a tablet its quite easy
danielpbarron: ReadErr, it's the wordpress that runs trilema.com
ben_vulpes: oya? wifi stuff?
ReadErr: ahh i see
ReadErr: ben_vulpes: not wifi typically
danielpbarron: a preserved in amber old version of wordpress
ReadErr: its a noisy spectrum
ben_vulpes: how dyou get setpoints from table to fc then
ReadErr: a lot of guys in america use 433 or 915mhz
ReadErr: packet radio
ReadErr: here 1sec
asciilifeform: lol garage remote spectrum
asciilifeform: fulla liquishit
mircea_popescu: ReadErr yeah ; it's what i use for interfacing all my hosting needs.
mircea_popescu: finetuned to perfection.
ReadErr: https://usercontent.irccloud-cdn.com/file/UOKmFuKE/banknwank.png

asciilifeform: !!up ReadErr
deedbot: ReadErr voiced for 30 minutes.
ReadErr: https://usercontent.irccloud-cdn.com/file/SKxLkae2/smallest.png
ReadErr: this one lol
ReadErr: some guy got into a pissing contest saying he had the smallest UHF receiver
ben_vulpes: ReadErr: what does 'HIV' stand for?
ReadErr: so i just did that to be spiteful
ReadErr: human immunodeficiency virus
ReadErr: i was kidding it doesnt have HIV
ReadErr: but 'full blown aids' is like a expression people use for everything but the kitchen sink
ben_vulpes: new one on me
ReadErr: atleast in certain circles
ben_vulpes: subject of circles where does this timecop feller and this otherguy with the uhf dick swinging habit all hang out?
ReadErr: well timecop is kinda out of the scene now, the other guy was just a random on a forum
ReadErr: but he wasnt releasing his source
ReadErr: and it was part of an opensource project i was involved in
ReadErr: so i did this one in a few hrs and put it on github
ReadErr: so ppl had an option if they wanted to make it or not
ben_vulpes: so whatcha working on now?
ReadErr: reworking some stuff for a DIY oxygen concentrator
ReadErr: for running torches
ReadErr: glass and whatnot
ReadErr: its kind of an odd area of the law, since they are sold as medical devices
ReadErr: its grey buying 2nd hand units
ReadErr: but this one has a higher output than several of the medical ones combined and costed much less
asciilifeform: from where didja get the zeolite, ReadErr ?
ReadErr: 1sec lemme find the invoice
ReadErr: i got a ton though lol
ReadErr: Products Model Price Total
ReadErr: 1 x 5A 8X12 Molecular Sieve Desiccant - 25 LB Box MS5A81225 $99.25 $99.25
ReadErr: Sub-Total: $99.25
ReadErr: UPS Ground : $20.85
ReadErr: Tax: $0.00
ReadErr: Total: $120.10
ReadErr: https://www.deltaadsorbents.com/molecular-sieve
ReadErr: so much cheaper when you buy 25#
ReadErr: asciilifeform: you have some concentrators ?
ReadErr: asciilifeform: just noticed re: modules
ReadErr: its mostly an ease thing
ReadErr: and they are so cheap (5$) from china
ReadErr: all the matching stuff ends up being quite a bit of extra parts
mircea_popescu: wd.
ReadErr: 1:09 AM <ReadErr> TI has some cortex/RF SoC for those ranges
ReadErr: 1:09 AM <ReadErr> if i went that route i would just try one of theirs
ReadErr: didnt notice the unvoice
mircea_popescu: ReadErr the channel is logged, see eg http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-03#1762950☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-01-03 06:17 ReadErr: didnt notice the unvoice
ReadErr: so now that im authenticated it wont -v ?
mircea_popescu: there's no need to worry anyone misses anything you say
mircea_popescu: and yes, now it won't -v
ReadErr: nice good deal
ReadErr: so is this stuff decentralized as well?
ReadErr: or does it all hinge on deedbot
danielpbarron: the log is hosted in at least 3 places, but decentralized is a sort of USG buzzword bullshit
mircea_popescu: yes, for instance http://logs.bvulpes.com/trilema?d=2018-1-3#274054
ReadErr: multi-homed ?
trinque: rendunderant
danielpbarron: that's a better term, sure
ReadErr: so like master/slave dbs
trinque: just multiple bots present logging.
ReadErr: gotcha
ReadErr: just quiet ones
mircea_popescu: http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20180103/#316 etc
scriba: Logged on 2018-01-03: [06:19:00] <mircea_popescu> yes, for instance http://logs.bvulpes.com/trilema?d=2018-1-3#274054
ReadErr: so question
ReadErr: if theres a netsplit
ReadErr: hows that work in terms of missing pieces
mircea_popescu: ReadErr actually there's all sorts of functionality implemented, see http://www.contravex.com/trilema-bots-directory/ for the list
mircea_popescu: ReadErr if there;s a netsplit every bot sees its shard ; generally discussion stops tho.
mircea_popescu: if you read the logs, you'll see there's a lot of important stuff in there.
danielpbarron: like the intel shit that's blowing up
mircea_popescu: anyway, you can make one too, if you want, it's not that hard.
mircea_popescu: take http://trinque.org/tag/ircbot/ and run with it.
ReadErr: ahh cool off ircbot
mircea_popescu: afaik this is new.
ReadErr: ive been wanting a reason to mess with https://github.com/irccloud/irccat
trinque: it is.
trinque: danielpbarron: how'd that cuntoo build go
mircea_popescu: ah, that's a different item.
ReadErr: the idea of being able to echo outputs of stuff into iirc
ReadErr: irc*
ReadErr: makes quick stuff really easy
mircea_popescu: ReadErr that's the idea. ircbot is in lips ; if you dont' grok that there's also supybot which iirc is python
mircea_popescu: and maybe others.
ReadErr: its pretty light footprint wise
danielpbarron: trinque, it finished but my rapid enter hitting caused it to default the user creation part, and i've yet to chroot back in to fix it
ReadErr: i run a supybot on efnet mostly for twitter crap
mircea_popescu: aha
ReadErr: its easier to see the stuff in a channel
ReadErr: than twitter.com
trinque: danielpbarron: lol, classic "next" mashing.
trinque: I should've put one of those fancy web toolbars in there.
mircea_popescu: pretty much everything is easier/better if you take the silicon valley idiots out of the loop
danielpbarron: i looks like it'll work tho, nice job
ReadErr: what I *really* want
ReadErr: is a irc twitter gateway kinda thing
trinque: danielpbarron: ty; if you made it to user creation you were done with the build
ReadErr: you connect to a znc or some server proxy
mircea_popescu: ReadErr how'd that work ?
ReadErr: and each @user has a pm
ReadErr: and channels would represent hashtags
trinque: made it past lilo and all that.
danielpbarron: the power at my house coincidentally went out on new years day and i'm still recovering from dancing
mircea_popescu: ah like a twitter bridge ? very likely get banned.
ReadErr: so you can add it to your client
ReadErr: and view 1 users tweets in order
ReadErr: reply
ReadErr: etc
ReadErr: yea API is kinda limited free tier
mircea_popescu: twitter isn't likely going to support this.
ReadErr: they will
danielpbarron: twitter is absolutely fucked
ReadErr: they just want $
ReadErr: for the extra api calls
danielpbarron: that's not even the problem
danielpbarron: they are trying to be facebook
ReadErr: twitter culture is dumb
ReadErr: but the few places i follow
ReadErr: its easiest to get quick news
ReadErr: and whatnot
danielpbarron: it used to work well, when i could reply to "celebrities" and have my reply get top billing
ReadErr: ohh crap check this out
ReadErr: https://usercontent.irccloud-cdn.com/file/HLKXlIMY/bahahahatrump.png slightly nsfw maybe
ReadErr: those 1st reply bots
mircea_popescu: !#s from:mircea "tumblr"
a111: 2366 results for "from:mircea \"tumblr\"", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=from%3Amircea%20%22tumblr%22
mircea_popescu: ^ talking of nsfw.
danielpbarron: oo that's a good url
ReadErr: lol mircea_popescu nice stuff
ReadErr: a lot of freenode chans are stuffy about that kinda thing
ReadErr: efnet doesnt really care
ReadErr: every click is risky
ReadErr: holy crap, 1700+ entries
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: it says, 2366
ReadErr: oh hm odd
ReadErr: it changes per page
ReadErr: good having folks like you that paste the good stuff, sift though the bad
mircea_popescu: indeed.
danielpbarron: i used that search to print out a stack of papers to post in a co-workers office, got fired.
mircea_popescu: ahahaha
danielpbarron regrets nothing
ReadErr: mircea_popescu you trust wordpress enough ?
mircea_popescu: mp-wp yeah.
ReadErr: ive seen so many boxes compromised from garbage wp pluggins
mircea_popescu: it's been running trilema for almost a decade, 0 spam 0 issues.
mircea_popescu: nah.
ReadErr: timthumb etc
mircea_popescu: it comes with all the plugins you need.
ReadErr: do you just prevent uploading?
mircea_popescu: no, there's tons of pics on trilema. look : http://trilema.com/2014/ill-pay-for-your-tits/
ReadErr: hahah 0.02BTC for tit pics nice
danielpbarron: sorta why i did 0.01, no tits ;<
mircea_popescu: lol
ReadErr: im not workin with much
ReadErr: any reliable postage selling sites that take eth?
mircea_popescu: notrly
ReadErr: yea couldnt find much either
ReadErr: i used stampnik ages ago
ReadErr: but with fees and stuff its too much
ReadErr: this must be one of those channels people actually sleep and live functional lives ;p
BingoBoingo: !!up yangwao
deedbot: yangwao voiced for 30 minutes.
BingoBoingo: yangwao: Who is your daddy and what does he do?
BingoBoingo: <ReadErr> this must be one of those channels people actually sleep and live functional lives ;p << Yes, and some people in this channel even get sent on missions to Montevideo.
ReadErr: lol explain
BingoBoingo: ReadErr: Well after a prolonged search for an acceptable ISP to host servers, not a single one in the world was found. So I was sent to Montevideo to work with a datacenter to start one.
ReadErr: oh haha thats awesome
ReadErr: setup a few racks?
BingoBoingo: Well, starting with one. At the moment mostly learning Spanish and waiting for the papers that declare me a very.legit.bsnsman
ReadErr: lol
ReadErr: i have so many dumb domains now
BingoBoingo: Anyways this is one of the few places where hard work, not being stupid, and sticking around leads to opportunities and access to leverage.
ReadErr: https://www.irccloud.com/pastebin/2BB5JFL5/
ReadErr: i let chatting.pro expire though
BingoBoingo: Ah, we have our own pastetank here courtesy of Senor ben_vulpes http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/
ReadErr: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/2Wm0S/?raw=true
ReadErr: hard16 is for ascii stuff not 16 year olds btw (16 color palette)
BingoBoingo: Ah
ReadErr: it was afterwards i realized people might take it the wrong way
ReadErr: how much you planning on deploying ?
ReadErr: odd that you arrived at uraguay
ReadErr: is it one of those bulletproof hosting setups or whatever
BingoBoingo: Well, After scouring the world Hong Kong would have required demasiado racks to support human presence near the datacenter, Brazil's visa process involved too much time and bullshit, and Uruguay is like "cool man, whatever"
ReadErr: must be a pretty serious thing if you can afford to do it fulltime for now
BingoBoingo: The setup however is not bulletproof. It turns out they don't make ballistic rated servers or cabinets.
ReadErr: lol surey they do :)
BingoBoingo: Well, part of the secret is keeping the burn rate on the cash low.
ReadErr: infact there was a german
ReadErr: in linuxcnc
ReadErr: thats all his company did
ReadErr: crazy chassis for tanks and vehicles
ReadErr: super shielded for RF
ReadErr: but yea need remote hands avail
BingoBoingo: Anyways, I am living in a hostel and rent a desk at a cowork space. The black people here are friendly, unlike in Saint Louis, and the girls are pretty.
ReadErr: haha
ReadErr: ive been to st. louis a few times with a buddy
ReadErr: its not too bad, too cold though
ReadErr: not much to do in the city but drink
ReadErr: the AHB tour is neat though
BingoBoingo: In the summer it's too hot in St Louis too.
ReadErr: yea thats true too
BingoBoingo: And were you there before or after Micheal Brown was martyred in August 2014? Since then the city's gone into a far more intense race war

BingoBoingo: Anyways if you go into St Louis now at night, even in the "nice" areas... there is a 50/50 chance you get surrounded by a crowd of youth with half of them on their phones calling your pasty ass a nigger and waiting to surprise you with WORLDSTARHIPHOP

BingoBoingo: ^ Monday night's adventure
asciilifeform: in other lulz, intel ceo sells 100% of the stock his contract permitted him to sell ( and even filed the mandatory usg report to hitler, hence how it came out )
asciilifeform: 0 mention in 'mainstream media' re the obvious reason ( http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-05#1720909 ) why.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-10-05 00:19 asciilifeform: here's a choice lulzgem: 'One-location hammering is based on a previously unknown Rowhammer effect. With one-location hammering, the attacker only runs a Flush+Reload loop on a single memory address at the maximum frequency. This virtually keeps the DRAM bank permanently open. We observed that one-location hammering drains enough charge from the DRAM cells to induce bit flips.'
asciilifeform: but in very unrelated lulz, https://archive.is/bON1p >> 'It’s a bit absurd that a modern gaming machine running at 4,000x the speed of an apple 2, with a CPU that has 500,000x as many transistors (with a GPU that has 2,000,000x as many transistors) can maybe manage the same latency as an apple 2 in very carefully coded applications if we have a monitor with nearly 3x the refresh rate.'
asciilifeform: ^ though i'ma nitpick, i actually ~had~ ( nao sold, ty phf ! for finding buyer ) a symbolics 3620 ; and it beat the shit out of the 2000s crapples, winblowz boxen, etc, at least subjectively. ( i did not obtain a 1000fps camera, unlike in the experiment claimed by linked item )
asciilifeform: 'If we look at overall results, the fastest machines are ancient. Newer machines are all over the place. Fancy gaming rigs with unusually high refresh-rate displays are almost competitive with machines from the late 70s and early 80s, but “normal” modern computers can’t compete with thirty to forty year old machines.'

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah, it's a very genuine social dynamic in monkey society (or "african-american" if you prefer), wherein strength dominates the very crowded quarters they're forced into, but speed is more useful for the group (as seen in ferguson, say). consequently, quick fuckers now and again scurry behind the big kahuna and knock him out, just foer the experience of it.

asciilifeform: in other verymuch nonnews, asciilifeform for some reason only today realized that von neumann's fair coin algo is simply 'numerical differentiation' for discretes, and removes bias for the same reason differentiation removes constant
asciilifeform: this wouldn't be worth writing about, except that it invites a gnarlier analysis q -- what is the bias that 1 round of faircoin ~does not~ remove ? ... analogous similarly directly to successive degrees of polynomial 'not removed' by differentiation in continuous functions ? can prove this ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah...
mircea_popescu: and the non-constant part of the polynomial isn't bias.
mircea_popescu: f(x) = f(y) for x, y arbitrarily chosen if and only if a1...an=0
asciilifeform: wat's a1 .. an ?
mircea_popescu: indices of polynomial, corresponding to root 1..n
asciilifeform: aa
mircea_popescu: a0x^0 is the constant
asciilifeform: then yea
asciilifeform: i'ma have to eat the 'not bias!' answer. even tho it leaves me without a clean analysis-flavoured picture of why successive rounds of faircoin improve entropy metrics across-the-board (regardless of what litmus is chosen)
mircea_popescu: because they're metrics!
mircea_popescu: think about it for a second, what's the aleph of entropy ?
asciilifeform: yes but why is ~this~ the only item they agree on.
mircea_popescu: THERE CAN NOT BE SUCH A THING AS ORDERED ENTROPY!
mircea_popescu: it's a set without meter! necessarily!
asciilifeform: this is correct and makes my puzzle appear doubly puzzling.
mircea_popescu: the problem are the metrics.
asciilifeform: why is there , apparently... a meter.
mircea_popescu: guess ?
asciilifeform: well obviously cuz i'm missing sumthing
asciilifeform: q is : what
mircea_popescu: in this case, cuz you ~have~ something.
asciilifeform: hm?
mircea_popescu: the metrics lol.
asciilifeform: it isn't clear to me why any such thing as 'distill the entropy' should be possible.
mircea_popescu: well, i guess we break out the metaphors. suppose you're now a vintner.
asciilifeform supposes
mircea_popescu: is there such a thing possible as "distill the wine", in the sense of "putting in less chicken droppings than previously" ?
mircea_popescu: conversely, is there such a thing possible as "distil the wine", in the sense of, "taking a cask of wine in which were put no droppings of any kind, and making it wine-irier, somehiw" ?
asciilifeform: theoretically yes. but not sure if analogous : chicken shit is visually separable from grape; what we have here is rather moar like trying to distill the veritas from 'in vino veritas'
mircea_popescu: alright, acceptable metaphor.
asciilifeform: ( the entropy that ~all~ of the litmuses have in common, is an imaginary entity... )
mircea_popescu: replace words, structure still stands.
asciilifeform: whenever i work on 'entropy' i get the uncomfortable suspicion that i am working with a phlogiston
mircea_popescu: it's not even untrue.
asciilifeform regularly returns to the problem, if the reader has not guessed, of exactly what is the correct method of testing FG, other than ~against other FG~
asciilifeform: thing was built to avoid lying to itself and the operator re entropy. but that's only 1st step.
mircea_popescu: there's no further steps.
asciilifeform: if there are -- i dun know of any. yet.
asciilifeform also wonders which, if any, 'dieharder' litmus, the item displayed in http://www.loper-os.org/bad-at-entropy/manmach.html is analogous to

mircea_popescu: i dunno who listens to these shitheads.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, let the case of the dumb icelander cow be publicized, maybe they learn the fundamental lesson : "being stupid, which is to say being you, means that the more you '''try to help''' the worse it gets. for everyone."
