artifexd: Duffer1: Are your gpg key and bitcoin wallet secure? How do we know that you are really you?
danielpbarron: cazalla, it's too popular; it's focus is on spready adoption rather than security
danielpbarron: I use it too; that's why I singled it out of all the other *nix variants
mircea_popescu: mike_c rare tho
BingoBoingo: cazalla: For pure ease of use some Debian derivative will prolly cause you the least headaches
Duffer1: artifexd afaik my gpg key wasn't compromised, but i have know way to confirm, my bitcoins are safe, i don't have anything online or on my comp
artifexd: Still, it might be a good idea to put sweeping all your wallets and changing your gribble keys on your cleanup todo list.
Duffer1: fuck you're right
artifexd: Sweeping to a paper wallet is first on my "what to do when shit is suspicious" list.
Duffer1: i'm already on paper, but i'll probably have to change gpg info
danielpbarron: with what machine was the paper created?
Duffer1: offline laptop, i bought it for that purpoes
artifexd: You also have a bitcoin address registered with gribble.
Duffer1: purpose
danielpbarron: nice
Duffer1: ya i take my shit seriously, which is why i'm surprised they got as far as they did
artifexd: I made my paper wallet with an abacus in a steel shielded room.
artifexd: With the lights off.
Duffer1: hehe
artifexd: I hope I didn't miss a bead.
BingoBoingo: Well, windows is a limiting factor on how serious you can be
Duffer1: indeed
danielpbarron: i don't get it then; you have an offline machine for your BTC but you keep your gpg key on the online windows thing?
Duffer1: yea
danielpbarron: although you don't have that much in your gpg identity yet; 2 ratings
Duffer1: yea pretty much convenience vs security on that one
artifexd: Someone is also much more likely to try to steal a wallet than a gpg key.
danielpbarron: maybe they have to get one to get the other
artifexd: gpg key compromise can be recovered from. Once your coins fly, they're gone.
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller nope.
danielpbarron: lol.. losing your gpg key could very well equal losing your coins.. plus more

Duffer1: evil people, they don't like leaving me alone :(
mircea_popescu: <Duffer1> wtf << 2fa is shit. otherwise sounds like you got a keylogger.
Duffer1: i use a program that encrypts every keystroke at the driver level
BingoBoingo: Duffer1: Why? Dunno what purpose a program like that can serve.
Duffer1: to prevent keylogging - even if they had hardware access to my machine they shouldn't be able to log
mircea_popescu: <Duffer1> i suspect they called comcast and got some tier one wanker to reset pw << now this is also possible.
mircea_popescu: Duffer1 think. at some point your machine sees the keys.
mthreat: yep. a chrome extension, for example, doesn't care about your hardware
Duffer1: you're right
Duffer1: atm i'm building a list of everything that needs to change, it's long
BingoBoingo: The thing is this Encrypt the keystrokes to beat keyloggers turd smells like pure security theatre and little else
mircea_popescu: also what danielpbarron said. ffs, srsly ? make a key on the airgapped laptop and get a qr gun for cryssakes.
mircea_popescu: they're like $20
Duffer1: no idea how to do that
mircea_popescu: you buy the qr gun. you plug it into your windoze machine.
mircea_popescu: you decrypt whatever on the laptop, and use the gun to read the screen

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: isn't meth supposed to be 'performance enhancing' dope ?
mircea_popescu: nope
asciilifeform: but kamikazes.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: The dose makes the poison.
mircea_popescu: that's amphetamine not metamphetamine
mircea_popescu: like you know, a joke's funny but a meta joke's just lame ? same thing.
asciilifeform: afaik all the extra methyl gives is fat-solubility
mircea_popescu: so it selects for landwhales is what you're telling me ?
BingoBoingo: methamphetamine has a greater propensity to promote psychosis at lower doses
asciilifeform: fat-solubility >> better penetration of brain-blood barrier
asciilifeform: + longer metabolic half-life
mircea_popescu: whatever theoretical chemistry may propose... meth ain't enhancing any performances.

BingoBoingo: Well, with methamphetamine levo-dexo rotary becomes a concern as well. l-methamphetamine is a rather safe decongestant. D-methamphetamine though... is the one that makes the news
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: from the u.s. army medical journals, a hypothesis - it's actually the sleep deprivation that does you in
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It's one of the more interesting ones
asciilifeform: (many of the maladies suffered by meth addicts - not only psychosis, but physiological - are also found in people who, for one reason or another - such as being under fire - cannot sleep)
BingoBoingo: Interesting testament to different effects of the rotary property check the active ingredient http://www.vicks.com/products/vapo-family/vapoinhaler-nasal-congestion-relief/#
asciilifeform: re: 'performance enhancing' dopes - important to remember that, even supposing performance enhanced, it matters who you were. e.g. paul erdos will crap out theorems, a hooligan will be able to break that many more windows, a lunatic will rant longer and more vigorously, etc.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i go for days without sleeping, often enough for not more than not feeling like it. this entire "sleep deprivation is bad for you" thing is bogus imo.
asciilifeform: days - who doesn't do this. try month.

asciilifeform: in the americas, those are largely unavailable to 'humans' - mafia, different story, buys by the drum
BingoBoingo: (ephedrine, pseudoephedrine tend to do this)
BingoBoingo: other precursors tend to produce racemic product
asciilifeform: if i recall these were banned ?
BingoBoingo: It's a pain in the ass to get them, but still available over the counter
asciilifeform: where i live, one can buy pseudoephedrine against running nose, but only in miniscule amounts and after signing a declaration of non-terrorism, with your driver's license entered in db

BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Costs too much for junkies to make their own, so it gets shipped from god knows where in the most efficient means possible
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: in ussr, meth was 'invented' in the mid '80s. but all the aficionados made their own, without exception. there was no 'market' in the usual sense.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: they would forge prescriptions for ephedrine (used in that period to treat asthmatics) and go from that.
BingoBoingo: They used to make their own here, but now for all I know Johnson and Johnson produces it.
asciilifeform: the necessary reagents were readily available, because amateur chemistry was not illegal in ussr.
asciilifeform: and people actually went to school, and occasionally learned things.

BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Other than marking territory and verbally accosting coyotes I encounter? Hmmm....
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Probably the best defense is a larger dog or a gram or so of lead
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: difficult to hunt in the city without everyone knowing.
Xplosionist: BingoBoingo: If only the automated lead disbursal was an easier to solve problem. :-)
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well, at least for coyote sized targets. Otherwise there are some primer motivated only rimfire loads that are rather quiet
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i suppose for the genuine aficionado, there's always the 'cranequin'.
BingoBoingo: I mean it's hard to set traps for coyote that also won't be appealing to every other animal around, so you'd prelly have to go for a live trap.
BingoBoingo: That would be a rather large cage trap (the only kind really permitted in human habited areas.

BingoBoingo: Indeed it is
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: any idea why ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Probably because it makes full automatic firing possible
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: on a bolt-action elephant rifle ?
BingoBoingo: Why make a device with electric ignition bolt action?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: accuracy. as pictured in the linked review.
asciilifeform: though the whole thing strikes me as quite like fishing with dynamite - where does the sport remain in the hunt ?
benkay: i also think robots aren't allowed to pull triggers on their own.
BingoBoingo: Oh, the engineers already had the sport with that one
BingoBoingo: I always imagined electic ignition firearms were for stuff like that caseless ammunition asssault rifle idea the Germans played with in the 80's

Azelphur: mircea_popescu: because they ask users 1) Would you consider sleeping with someone on a first date, 2) What sex are you, 3) Do you like the taste of beer?

benkay: (generations, i mean)

nubbins`: benkay: what's a war on drugs but a legislated range of feelings?
nubbins`: :D
mircea_popescu: dub people deal with the problem of global warming by giving the bums involved more money to do more "research"
nubbins`: http://www.reddit.com/r/Showerthoughts/comments/2aokbz/guys_get_erections_every_morning_right_the/
assbot: Guys get erections every morning, right? The concept of "morning" varies depending on where you live, with the "morning line" basically spinning around the earth infinitely, right? So does that mean that humanity has been doing a "boner wave" around the earth for hundreds of thousands of years? : Showerthoughts
mircea_popescu: im bashing that nubbins line
nubbins`: er which?
nubbins`: i have so many quotable quips that it's hard to keep track
benkay: nubbins`: no way man that's rent-seeking.
mircea_popescu: pretty cool eagles.
mircea_popescu: nubbins` the range o' feelings.
nubbins`: ah ah
nubbins`: srsly tho. war on unauthorized mental states
nubbins`: imagine such a thing
mike_c: oh man. bash is improving. there is some funny shit in there.
benkay: flip it
benkay: it's not a 'war' on anything.
mircea_popescu: mike_c ikr!
benkay: it's an outlawing of things to make work for the rent-seekers.
benkay: this employs head-knockers and jail-lockers.
mircea_popescu: benkay no, it's not a war. the way i see it, to keep a police force going you gotta give it some niggers to pick on.
mircea_popescu: otherwise, it becomes too expensive.
benkay: those exist anyways, man.
mike_c: i generally am disappointed when ninjashogun gets upped, but he is a gold mine.
mircea_popescu: and since the actual niggers are rioting... they moived to fags. those also rioted in the 50s
nubbins`: mike_c +1
mircea_popescu: so now it's pedos and bongheads
nubbins`: potheads don't riot
benkay: a reasonably sized constabulary could be had if its mandate were reasonable.
mircea_popescu: exactly. perfect fodder.
mircea_popescu: then again, that's what they said about fags, too. look into stonewall inn.
nubbins`: benkay: sounds like here
benkay: it's a massive constabulary though, and needs a massive mandate to keep it fat and busy.
nubbins`: mircea_popescu, v familiar
nubbins`: nobody riots until they do
mircea_popescu: benkay no, it could not. because you oculdn't motivate anyone to join it.
mircea_popescu: just like you can't have a sane corpus of teachers.
nubbins`: teaching and police work are for the daft or the dangerous
mircea_popescu: exactly.
mircea_popescu: if you can give them someone to shitface, then you can get the dangerous to be useful.
mircea_popescu: it all rests on this major question.
benkay: but must we have so many constables?
nubbins`: not initially
nubbins`: but once the ranks swell
nubbins`: it's harder to squeeze the dead air back out
mircea_popescu: benkay i kinda like being able to ask for directions.
benkay: what, you don't talk to regular humans for things like that?
mircea_popescu: also, idiots tend to think nothing they can't see exists. best way to keep compton in line is keeping cars on patrol.
mircea_popescu: they see a cop, the underdevelop part of their brain that regulates behaviour gets a jolt.
benkay: lol o compton's in line?
nubbins`: best way to keep this grease fire under control is to only let a little bit of oxygen at it
mircea_popescu: benkay sure. they got a gdp and everything.
benkay: so does mexico.
benkay: so does the usg, for that matter.
mircea_popescu: exactly.
mircea_popescu: http://bash.bitcoin-assets.com/?quote=195 << this made laugh a 2nd time
assbot: #bitcoin-assets bash
benkay: why not send robocop cars around?
benkay: all that part of the brain needs is the black and white, not the human behind the wheel.
mircea_popescu: im not so sure.
nubbins`: yeah
mircea_popescu: what was the film with that retard cop
nubbins`: haha i laughed at that one too
mircea_popescu: ends up involved with some cokehead, sister of tom cruise who's a total dudebro
mircea_popescu: a yes, magnolia. ever seen magnolia benkay ?
nubbins`: wait, she wasn't tom cruise's sister
nubbins`: in that movie
mircea_popescu: yah i got confused.
nubbins`: re: the retard cop (john c reilly), he's done some really bizarre comedy
nubbins`: like, really fucked
mircea_popescu: anyway. retarded cop, gets out of car, has interraction with rapper 12 yo black kid
mircea_popescu: that's the thing.
nubbins`: yeah
nubbins`: same kid that eventually finds his gun?
mircea_popescu: yeah.
nubbins`: nod
nubbins`: i was actually impressed by how much of a douchebag tom cruise's character was in that movie
mircea_popescu: anyway, i confess when i hear someone's a rapper, that kid is what i think about.
nubbins`: hahah
mircea_popescu: much like when i hear smeone's an entrepreneur, what i think about are the poor egyptian kids in luxor.
mircea_popescu: huddled around two 386 hooked into a dialup modem (cca 2004!), at the Luxor Center For Businessmen.
mircea_popescu: (dirt floors)
nubbins`: when i hear someone's a rapper, i think of reggie watts ;(
nubbins`: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdHK_r9RXTc
assbot: Reggie Watts disorients you in the most entertaining way - YouTube
mircea_popescu: jesus what a promising thing ted was, and what a smoldering shitpile it turned into.
mircea_popescu: all this because they refused to implement anti-inclusiveness, hierarchy, closedness, etc.
nubbins`: ^ that video starts with the guy taking the piss out of every TED presenter ever
benkay: holy hell
benkay: lady v's father is going to burning man
nubbins`: it's pretty rich
benkay: <mircea_popescu> a yes, magnolia. ever seen magnolia benkay ? // no sir
mircea_popescu: well it's a shitty movie, but i guess it makes this particular sidepoint well.
benkay: no but srsly the foxnews conservative gentleman is going to burning man
benkay: it must be over
benkay: what, 160k this year?
mircea_popescu: benkay it was over in 2007/2008
benkay: what, that recently?
mircea_popescu: pre-that, 80%+ of the chicks i knew states-side went
mircea_popescu: that year... like 1/3
mircea_popescu: maybe i'm biased cause age.
benkay: it's always over this year.
benkay: it's got it's own eternal september thing
mircea_popescu: now that may also be.
mircea_popescu: maybe your father in law is considering it's unfair you shoulda got the vixen, and wants to get a replacement.
benkay: yeah, sr. lady v's marbles are a bit scattered
mircea_popescu: "honey, i love you very much, but i just can't live without twentysomething yo cunt in the house"
benkay: i did cart her off to burning man and then demanded a dowry so you may be on to something there
benkay: (eternal september is also a poor joke about the dates of the thing in question)
benkay: hey last night i learned that gates sr, jr, and warran buffet indulged in an orgy while floating through some famously beautiful chinese water thing
benkay: warren*
danielpbarron: i think magnolia is a shaggy dog story
mircea_popescu: agreed
mircea_popescu: how long were you saving that expression ?
danielpbarron: which can be good.. but often aren't
danielpbarron: yeah no kidding; that one doesn't come up often
mircea_popescu: benkay what, with each other ?
benkay: details were...scant.
benkay: but who says they were the only ones, eh?
benkay: more reasonable assumption is a bevy of local sluts.
mircea_popescu: did this have anything to do with giving away money for forwarding omething ?
ThickAsThieves: <+mircea_popescu> well it's a shitty movie, but i guess it makes this particular sidepoint well. /// everyone ive ever shown the movie too agrees with you, but it has this lingering impression
BingoBoingo: Forward this email to X people and old fucks invade your house for an orgy?
ThickAsThieves: probly just the direction
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo truth@lemonparty.org
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves imo it's mr. bookman that saves it.
mircea_popescu: also the fact they try so hard to re-do QT it's almost lulzy
BingoBoingo: I'm a lemon party truther. Lemon party is an Obama scheme to keep McCain out of the White House.
