ThickAsThieves: <+kakobrekla> anyone seen anything liek this before http://shrani.si/f/47/UL/3m3knoYx/imag1961.jpg /// the streaking? i assumed it's a laser printer, you may have an expired head, or rollers/head are dirty. If you mean that most of the print is missing on the new one, well it could be a major malfunction, bad head. If you mean the dusting on the white area, you may have toner in your
ThickAsThieves: parts and the inside of the printer needs to be cleaned. That's off the top of my head.

ThickAsThieves: nice
kakobrekla: ThickAsThieves both prints should be all black
ThickAsThieves: have you tried a different head?
ThickAsThieves: if it's new it shouldn't need one...
kakobrekla: i have done 50 prints on it or so
kakobrekla: but i cant change the head even if i change the toner
ThickAsThieves: can you change the distance of the paper?
ThickAsThieves: all the dusting is also a problem
ThickAsThieves: probably just busted
kakobrekla: i guess so, doesnt seem to be a common problem
ThickAsThieves: is it the same paper?
kakobrekla: yup
kakobrekla: tried 3 different ones really.
ThickAsThieves: did you clean it at all?

ThickAsThieves: the paper has a coating that accepts charge, the head delivers it in the print pattern, the paper is run over toner and it sticks, then it is melted on, if any full-contact parts were cleaned and have residue, they will disrupt the process
ThickAsThieves: though a hard stop like you show would be a separate problem probably

BingoBoingo: Hello
youtubetard: Says I have been voiced for 30 minutes? Still learning here.
BingoBoingo: youtubetard: Yeah
BingoBoingo: if you need more time just pm someone
BingoBoingo: as long as you act like a human being generally people are happy to voice you until you establish youself in the WoT and can voice yourself
BingoBoingo: youtubetard: So what is it you do?
youtubetard: ahh ok ok. Makes sense. I am reading up more so I don't come off as a troll lol
youtubetard: reading up more on WoT that is.
youtubetard: I work with Bitcoin and enjoy working with technology. I've done mostly consulting which is more or less just educating certain individuals and businesses on BTC, what it is, how it works, and why they should get some
youtubetard: What about yourself?
BingoBoingo: Well, I read a lot and sometime people ask me to do things.
BingoBoingo: I guess sometimes I "consult"

youtubetard: haha good answer.
BingoBoingo: Basically ever since 2004 when I bought a computer I've been waiting for an opportunity to use GPG and... Bitcoin afforded that.
youtubetard: haha very nice. Bitcoin has opened a whole new world to basically anyone will to learn/understand it
youtubetard: which is amazing if you really think about it
assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!
BingoBoingo: Indeed, so when did you get started?
youtubetard: I built and fiddled with various electronics when I was very little...leading to me building a computer. Came to a better understanding of real money and stable currencies, discovered bitcoin in 2010. and have pursued it ever since
youtubetard: with continued education of course
The20YearIRCloud: tada
The20YearIRCloud: I think we (Rentalstarter) will be having another webinar type thing September the 1st
BingoBoingo: Ah, even though ~2010 was when I first started reading on it, fucking library school. Wasn't until very late 2012 I started playing with it more seriously and 2013 that I started seeking introductions.
BingoBoingo: The20YearIRCloud: What sort of webinar?
youtubetard: ah, it does take time...BTC was deff sketch at first, but that's more so if you're used to seeing things from a consumer/comercial stand point
The20YearIRCloud: BingoBoingo: going over company financials, forecasting, where the company is headed in the short term
BingoBoingo: The20YearIRCloud: Ah
BingoBoingo: youtubetard: See my mistake was I imagined myself poor when I could have seized upon something powerful at the time... But instead dreams of librarian jobs danced in my head.
BingoBoingo: And I've always wanted to be an Emperor, or at least a lesser Lord of the Manor much more than I've wanted to be a librarian.
BingoBoingo: Alea Icta Est.
The20YearIRCloud: maybe some day you can start your own empire in a 3rd world country
BingoBoingo: The20YearIRCloud: Why not in the remains of a "superpower"
The20YearIRCloud: i think that'd be too expensive

BingoBoingo: The20YearIRCloud: Maybe if you plan to camp out there through all the intermediate steps
BingoBoingo: !up youtubetard
The20YearIRCloud: Eh, gdp between 2nd world and 3rd world is huge, much easier to pay some PMCs and take over a african despot than say kazachstan
BingoBoingo: GDP is a lie
The20YearIRCloud: Then let's say manpower * arms in inventory
youtubetard: There are a lot of factors involved.
BingoBoingo: Right, you could be the motherfucker who has the bomb and an acute shortage of lithium citrate syrup USP
youtubetard: lol very true
youtubetard: but, micro-states are on the rise no doubt.
youtubetard: especially with the use of crypto tech such as btc and being able to generate more free flowing economies
The20YearIRCloud: There are some pretty good candidate areas for micro countries if yo ucould break away effectively
BingoBoingo: Florisant Missouri being a prime example
BingoBoingo: The olds might forgive his neglect, but the youth are always going to think Obama's an Uncle Tom
youtubetard: lol
youtubetard: yea...Quebec will hopefully demonstrate a peaceful and constructive seccesion
youtubetard: although with the rate of bankrupt nations...it shouldn't be too difficult
The20YearIRCloud: is quebec gonna cede again?
The20YearIRCloud: along with scotland , NI and flanders?
youtubetard: one can only hope.
youtubetard: more complexity is the nature of all things in the long term. So the rise of many many many micro states is very likely. People see Liechtenstein's success
BingoBoingo: The weird thing is an independent Flanders is probably going to be more capable of keeping ISIS at bay than the combined efforts of the US and UK ever could
youtubetard: oh yea, I agree. If anything ISIS has seen the success of the TaliBann in creating a "Day the Mouse roared" scenario. The US continues to bleed and become bankrupt whilst attempting to maintain "stability" in a non-stabile enviorment
xmj: hm
xmj: gentlemen, I need your opinion on something.
youtubetard: shoot
xmj: What would make for a better home base in 2015 or 2016: Luxembourg, Monaco or Jersey/Guernsey?
youtubetard: great question. I don't see europe being safe honestly. While Monaco and other principalities are entering their golden age...the time to be there is now...not in 5 years +
youtubetard: but that's my opinion. Prices are high there, so I can't see a benefit financially
BingoBoingo: xmj: What about Serbia?
xmj: define 'safe'
BingoBoingo: xmj: Or Transndstria?
xmj: BingoBoingo: nah. Ukraine
BingoBoingo: Fuck that.
xmj: and yes, if Russia doesn't invade Ukraine is another option on the table.
The20YearIRCloud: I like singapore
xmj: BingoBoingo: You haven't been there. You haven't seen Ukrainian women on the streets.

The20YearIRCloud: Poland is making alot of good choices
BingoBoingo: Ukraine is going to suffer full Russian invasion or not
xmj: The20YearIRCloud: Poland also has a catholic population, which is fucking annoying.
youtubetard: Russia is a good buy imo
xmj: Twenty-somethings going to church _every sunday_.
The20YearIRCloud: I'd be more worried about making the right decisions as a state than religious preferences
youtubetard: it will have cheep prices compared
The20YearIRCloud: uruguay seems to be a really good choice if they continue on
BingoBoingo: Russian is... interesting
xmj: meh
xmj: let's assume I want to something in the West. Which is either Anglo-Saxon, or Germanic.
BingoBoingo: But what if you love her ? What if you love what she’s doing to you, not necessarily for what it is but for it being her doing ? Maybe you even hate it for what it is, on some level, but because she’s doing it you love it anyway. Years later I read in a learned article that that’s exactly how women love, not for the thing but for its meaning, and I was enlightened. That’s what they mean by the meaning of things, do they ?
BingoBoingo: Well shit.
xmj: with low taxes.
BingoBoingo: !up youtubetard
The20YearIRCloud: If the US ever de-federalized, many would be in for a treat
xmj: de-federalized? you mean, proper central state, not just a fake one?
xmj: fake - in all but law
The20YearIRCloud: Meaning the federal goverment went back to the original role of only planning national defense and nothing else
The20YearIRCloud: Most US states are run pretty well, but when you add the federal goverment into it, it becomes a huge mess
BingoBoingo: This latest trilema MP put out is quite the read
youtubetard: lol very true...the fed is just spiraling into the darkness
xmj: ah
xmj: The20YearIRCloud: of course
xmj: I thought you meant the other way round
The20YearIRCloud: But state budgets, control, state/house makup, they're run well
xmj: well, they have no one to bail them out (cf Californian default)
The20YearIRCloud: Ohio is a prime example, in the past 10 years we've finally got a group in the house that knows what they're doing and are repealing a bunch of dumb laws
BingoBoingo: The20YearIRCloud: Ohio might suffer the most from reduced Federal dependence...
xmj: The20YearIRCloud: the funny thing is:
The20YearIRCloud: left to their own devices, California, Illinois, new york and maryland would implode
BingoBoingo: Oh, Illinois would split
xmj: US-american libertarians think they can fix the flaws of the Constitution by reverting to it.
BingoBoingo: Where, is to be determined
The20YearIRCloud: Yeah , they'd cut cook county off :D
BingoBoingo: Oh, most of the stuff sround there too.
youtubetard: still...smaller limited govmints where authority tends to be inhereted to the local inhabitants tends to be more stable....at least history tells us so
The20YearIRCloud: Yeah, but cook county would be a start
youtubetard: lololol constitution caused most of all the issues we have today
BingoBoingo: Split could run as far south as I-64 and I'd be happy
The20YearIRCloud: The problem wasn't the constitution, it was that people thought things weren't clear and decided they could deviate

youtubetard: but I also don't think humans will abandon goverments nor fiat anytime soon...think about human nature...only technology can really better the opportunities
youtubetard: yea...Putin seems to be very fond of the ole days

mircea_popescu: should the teasts move, within a year and a half tops the local states'd be in such a mess you wouldn't believe your eyes.
mircea_popescu: dynamic equilibriums. always a bitch.
BingoBoingo: Missouri goes back to lead mining, Illinois mines coal, Ohio mines butthurt
mircea_popescu: The20YearIRCloud: left to their own devices, California, Illinois, new york and maryland would implode << exactly. they're also the only three examples where a trickle of leeching happens even with the federal govt (ie, it's where corrupt politicians try to build a career state-level)
mircea_popescu: (maryland excepted. i have nfi idea what it's even for. without washington it'd look like detroit five weeks after everyone grew wings)
The20YearIRCloud: I'm basing my statement on individual states based on balanced books and economic outlook, i realize that states suck the government teat, however if you look at total federal aid and who it goes to ,the big thing is military aid
mircea_popescu: not what i mean.
mircea_popescu: what i mean is, the porkbarrel leeches that curently push and deform washington
mircea_popescu: would just move over to ohio state capitol.
The20YearIRCloud: You also have to realize those politcians getting the pork are not the ones who run the state
BingoBoingo: The20YearIRCloud: A lot of military pork is spent in Ohio
The20YearIRCloud: Sure it is
The20YearIRCloud: The lima tank plant is prolly the best example of pork military spending out there
mircea_popescu: the entire "federal funds" thing has nothing to do with anything. they're not "federal" funds in any sense.
mircea_popescu: people made it.
BingoBoingo: And it being spent there eases the jobs of the state level comrades
The20YearIRCloud: The difference in most states is that you elect senators on a state-wide level, so it's very easy to stack votes in areas (And I blame it on fraud) leading to very centrist/leftist politicians in washington
mircea_popescu: sure. but if there were no feds, the same money would still be available.
mircea_popescu: The20YearIRCloud trust me, new gerrymandering would be invented.
mircea_popescu: the current system didn't exist before it was needed either.
The20YearIRCloud: For state senators, it's based on geographic districts, and the heavily urban areas have limited voting abilities, so here in ohio, 70% of state senators/house members are right/non-left
mircea_popescu: inasmuch as there's a public treasury somewhere, there's going to be a troop of people forcing it open.
mircea_popescu: wherever you houise it, washington or akron, they'll take a bus
mircea_popescu: they'll swim if they have to.
The20YearIRCloud: Sure, but if you look at each state, some states have essentially become mini-washingtons, and others are not
mircea_popescu: only because some states have stuff to be leached and some don't.
The20YearIRCloud: Not every state is constantly growing the size of government or increasing efficientcy
mircea_popescu: illinois is bigger and richer than ohio. so is california. so is ny. that is all.
The20YearIRCloud: Texas has plenty to be leached and they continue to have a balanced budget and generally more efficient finances
mircea_popescu: it's a matter of size not quality. once the pig is ripe, it gets sliced.
mircea_popescu: granted, texas is a decent-ish counterexample
The20YearIRCloud: Ohio is 7th largest in GDP
The20YearIRCloud: Florida is also leaps and bounds better than the liberal states, and they're large as well
mircea_popescu: i will call this variance.
mircea_popescu: by and large, it won't make a difference.
BingoBoingo: The20YearIRCloud: If we go truly paleo Illinois has so much more to sell in... Biodiesel...
The20YearIRCloud: take out chicago and illinois isn't bad
The20YearIRCloud: just like upstate NY and most (geographically) of california
The20YearIRCloud: it all comes down to dense urban areas vs everyone else
The20YearIRCloud: urban areas want to control everything, rural areas typically don't

The20YearIRCloud: I'm curious what would happen to cities if they do what some counties have done here in Ohio and effectively end police service
mircea_popescu: The20YearIRCloud you're like, a proud ohio citizen or something, are ya ?
The20YearIRCloud: half of my county has no police service, some counties have one officer who works half a day
The20YearIRCloud: I enjoy the state severely, lots of business, but I can also own a machine gun or drive a tank down the highway
The20YearIRCloud: It's kind of like texas, but we have snow
mircea_popescu: well, never knew one before.
BingoBoingo: I mean I like parts of illinois, but Missouri is the way to go.
The20YearIRCloud: my wife's family is from missouri, i wouldn't mind living out there at all
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo yeah but i suspect he likes it in the way of pick up a rifle and form a picket.
The20YearIRCloud: but the state is severely offset by the idocy in st louis :D
The20YearIRCloud: her family is about 2hrs south-west of springfield
The20YearIRCloud: in the middle of literally nowhere

chetty: <usagi> Like if I promise to give you a thousand dollars at some point in the future, that has value//only if your promise has value
usagi: actual and perceived value being completely different.. in the case of the bank the perceived value is probably very high.. The banks around here have been doing the same sort of thing for years
usagi: They allow you to invest in gold but they don't actually give you the gold.
usagi: It's actually impossible to ever redeem it. But the banks promise that they will buy back the gold you have on account with them should you want to sell it
HeySteve: on the face of it, the bank must relend the gold in order to pay the interest
chetty: <usagi> actual and perceived value being completely different..//being the root of much evil
HeySteve: so it's not just trusting the bank, but their counterparties too
HeySteve: not sure why anyone would go for this, but you always get idiots
usagi: Hmm yes and no
HeySteve: the interest rate is way too low for the risk imo

usagi: Especially if you're in the wrong country at the time

HeySteve: hmm well gold does have its holding costs
HeySteve: a secret buried treasure chest is a lot more secure than a bank vault I'd say
HeySteve: it's like cold wallet... or coinbase?
punkman: private key being the gps coordinates
usagi: The only way I can imagine someone paying you to invest your gold with them is if they were selling it for an inflated price. I used to do that with TU.SILVER, I front-loaded my fee and the shipping cost into the share price
