BingoBoingo: punkman: A number of the AMD Thinkpads don't or at least shouldn't have that (May lack that and possess something else). I think the X140e is the newest of that bunch.
mircea_popescu: so i google to find if i ever reviewed boiler room, the movie. what do i find ?
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=26-06-2013&bots=true#102590
ozbot: #bitcoin-assets log
mircea_popescu: prolly should be in the scientology thread, doing the guy's research for him.
mike_c: lowlife goatherder. harsh!
mike_c: wow, there are over 1m goats in romania.
mircea_popescu: how the fuck do you know that ?!
mike_c: random internet page of course.
mike_c: http://ercg2014.org/goat-breeding-in-romania/
ozbot: Goat Breeding in Romania | ERCG 2014
mike_c: how could it not be true?
mike_c: "The number of goat is about 1220000." hehe
mircea_popescu: reason i ask is, recently the government was embarassed to all hell
mircea_popescu: because it couldn't produce a total figure for porcines in the country
mircea_popescu: notwithstanding they do expensive tagging and whatnot.
mike_c: pigs i can't help with.
pankkake: I saw The Wolf of Wall Street. first part felt like Bitcoin
mircea_popescu: animals have individual health bulletins
mircea_popescu: pankkake since you mention it, http://trilema.com/2014/the-wolf-of-wall-street/

ozbot: U.S. wireless group proposes TV channel-sharing pilot
ThickAsThieves: theyre gonna broadcast on same waves to prove it can be done
ThickAsThieves: bets wall st portrayal is American Psycho
ThickAsThieves: best*
ThickAsThieves: :)
pankkake: I am so many trilema articles behind
mircea_popescu: one can not keep up
mircea_popescu: my mother can not keep up
pankkake: hm. so I should get a slave to TL;DR it for me
pankkake: maybe I'll read that Asylum thing on my ereader
mircea_popescu: seems to me if you pay a woman to read trilema a slave is you.
mircea_popescu: she gets all the fun
pankkake: anyway I liked TWoWS, weird as I both dislike movies about drugs and di caprio. technically the movies good without making sense
pankkake: I wish there was more emphasis on the actual financial part
mircea_popescu: dude...
mircea_popescu: idiot kid is shown droping acid or w/e pre exam
mircea_popescu: then he "passed it"
mircea_popescu: magically.
mircea_popescu: like that.
mircea_popescu: what's this, like a telenovella, people are supposedly working but nobody does anything ever.
pankkake: I'm not used to read long things on a computer. Except amateur porn stories I guess
pankkake: actually that's how I started to learn English outside of education :D
mircea_popescu: jesus.
Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, have you watched Black mirror yet ?
mircea_popescu: nop
Apocalyptic: some material for trilema articles in there imo
mircea_popescu: i don't really do tv series
mike_c: i hope you weren't saying you didn't enjoy boiler room. granted, it's not good film, but it is enjoyable.
Apocalyptic: nor do I, but i'm kinda sure you'll like this
Apocalyptic: it's not even a tv serie as in the episodes are completely unrelated to each other
Apocalyptic: consider it a set of mini films
pankkake: seems like the twilight zone
mircea_popescu: mike_c marginally.
KRS1: mircea_popescu: did you at least do breaking bad?
mircea_popescu: it's pretty bad. one can enjoy the invasion of the alien robot gorillas too,
mike_c: only if done entertainingly though.
mircea_popescu: KRS1 i went through a few of that and game of thrones during an hour once
mike_c: ah, you did like the sting though. great movie, also with some odd plotlines.
mircea_popescu: the sting was good
BingoBoingo: mike_c: Does this link work for you? http://www.totalwebcasting.com/view/?id=nysdfs
mike_c: yeah, but i couldn't see the video because it was on edgecast. on a different connection now and it works. thanks for the link.
BingoBoingo: mike_c: You are welcome. All of these verbal tics... I dunno if I can actually transcribe this chairperson. Maybe wait for official transcripts or Odesk, then correct the inevitable mistakes?
punkman: Apocalyptic: Black Mirror was fun, especially the first one: "a much-loved member of the Royal Family, is kidnapped. For her safe return, the Prime Minister must have sexual intercourse with a pig on national television."
Apocalyptic: yeah
Apocalyptic: the second one was good too
Apocalyptic: kinda captured all murica there
Apocalyptic: and brilliantly executed
mike_c: heh. odesk is probably best to keep sanity intact.
Apocalyptic: seriously mircea you're missing out
mircea_popescu: ok ok. teh point is made.
BingoBoingo: mike_c: Reminds me of that Nefario video
mircea_popescu: from mike_c's earlier goatlink : "The number of goat is about 1220000."
mircea_popescu: much number...
punkman: a goat conference you say
punkman: sounds interesting
punkman: do all animals have a conference?
mircea_popescu: pretty much all professions have a trade rag and a trade show
BingoBoingo: I have to wonder is a single Winkelvii incapable of undertaking any action on their own?

assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 21600 @ 0.00088852 = 19.192 BTC [+] {2}
BingoBoingo: About 26 minutes into the second session (the one with Mr. LiteCoin) the person chairing the committee suddenly seems to reveal he has more insight into how mining works than any of the witnesses.
BingoBoingo: reeses: Mr Litecoin http://gawker.com/jury-reprimanded-for-laughing-at-alleged-sheep-fucker-r-1510835023
BingoBoingo: *re: Mr Litecoin http://gawker.com/jury-reprimanded-for-laughing-at-alleged-sheep-fucker-r-1510835023
BingoBoingo: Judie Rinearson may be the most informed witness on the Mr Litecoin panel, for suggesting that to run a BTC-Fiat exchange you ought to already have substanitial piles of both.
BingoBoingo: Carol VanCleef and "passing the private keys" might be worse than Mr Litecoin. I though only Cascascius moved BTC by passing private keys around.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 31 @ 0.00424814 = 0.1317 BTC [-] {7}
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: cascascius is a plot to further holography (and microscopy, and possibly metallurgy) research. with gigantic bounty. you read it here first.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I think this is the first time you said so in such a blunt way. Before it seems you pushed people to read between the lines.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: everyone is invited to draw his own conclusion. note that physical reality doesn't care about intentions.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 17400 @ 0.00088994 = 15.485 BTC [+]
BingoBoingo: physical reality suggests not eating for a month would be a horrible way to die and people talk about that. A much worse way to die physical reality suggests might be gorging of food for 30 days with an orfice sealed by either cyano acrylate or sutures preventing bowel evacuation.
BingoBoingo: People talk about starvation though
BingoBoingo: No one talks about forced GI obstruction
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: not to nitpick, but people who actually suffer GI obstruction, when they succumb, it is of starvation (digestive tract then only works in 'reverse gear')
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Much of the time. Othertimes though they succumb to sepsis due to things tearing. Depends on how low you place the obstruction.
BingoBoingo: Age might be an important factor in this though.
BingoBoingo: Fucking retardation from Mr Litecoin "It only matters reimbursing that dollar amount" That is Usagi fucking losing 90+ % of fund value is a victory logic.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: curious - why do you care what goes on in that circus?
Duffer1: i'm having trouble figuring out which circus is being discussed here
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I'm following the circus because I think appearing at a later incarnation of one of these hearings might be a fun way to break my pseudonymity.
BingoBoingo: I would like to advance at one of these hearings the position that "bitcoin doesn't much care about you"
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: like any good story, this one must be 'shown, not told'
asciilifeform: the most educational possible outcome of the circus is: use of bitcoin is banned under penalty of cranked impalement - and continues enthusiastically regardless.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Sure. I would like the chance though to add some theater to one of these circuses though. A chance to go on the record seems like it could be fun (even though right nao by being in this channel I am on the most important record atm.)
BingoBoingo: It seems pretty clear though than many people on the NYDFS committee though likely hold more BTC than these witnesses though.
asciilifeform: best propaganda, as always, is 'propaganda by the deed.'
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 19465 @ 0.0008868 = 17.2616 BTC [-]
BingoBoingo: Witnessing at one of these committees and not doing this retarded thing people who imagine themselves public speaking capable do where they simply read prepared statements verbatim could be educative to prevent future Amir Taaki and Charles Lee situations.
asciilifeform: what are the chances of something other than a scriptable muppet being invited ?
BingoBoingo: I wonder if any of these people speaking has ever had to handle a classroom where one has to anticipate any degree of retardation and ignorance from student questions.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I imagine such chances are low. That is why I kind of hold this out as a bit of a dream.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7000 @ 0.0008868 = 6.2076 BTC [-]
BingoBoingo: Maybe if Illinois has one of these things I could find myself invited. Illinois is rather similar to NY. Both States are giant wastland with Giant cities occupying a small portion of the waste.
BingoBoingo: Maybe the biggest difference comes from settlers in Illinois having become victims of a native joke and naming Chicago after the region's natural onion stink.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 21797 @ 0.00088561 = 19.3036 BTC [-] {2}
BingoBoingo: My big complaint about these hearings is that the only thing close to "I don't know how your assumptions could be so broken that you describe reality with such retarded lenses" seems to be coming out of the fucking regulators on the dias.
BingoBoingo: mike_c: Being 10 minutes out from catching up with the Day's proceedings I imagine Odesk will probably be too slow and too shitty (the second point is never a question with Odesk)
mike_c: you might be surprised. i've hired some odeskers for transcribing before and it worked pretty well. hit and miss though i'm sure.
BingoBoingo: Maybe my world has been small but I have never seen quality work transcibing done by those who are not extremely poor and brown or the other extreme which is incredibly professional court reporters.
mike_c: i'm sure they were poor. i did not pay much.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.43399989 BTC [+]
BingoBoingo: Poor isn't necessarily the greatest problem maybe. Probably desperation might be bigger.
BingoBoingo: THere's a bit of overlap here that makes the right attribute hard to sus out.
asciilifeform: gonna be tricky to hire these folks for speech transcription once they start mining SlaveCoin.
asciilifeform: (a SlaveCoin would, hypothetically, do to human labour what bitcoin did to computing power)
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Bodypart coins see so simpler though. Value through removing value.

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: reminds me of an ancient chinese weapon i once read of
asciilifeform: a 'field guillotine'
asciilifeform: sack, attached to a spring-loaded gadget reminiscent of a camera aperture.
BingoBoingo: Kind of what I imagined. Dunno how many ways there are to imagine such a thing though.
asciilifeform: two leap upon the victim, hold him down, while a third operates the snipper.
asciilifeform: then present head to buyer.
BingoBoingo: Dunno how many recyclable parts are actually present in the head though.

nubbins`: "where did this $9t go?" "we currently don't have that information until we finish our review" etc
mircea_popescu: "professional" is "guy in a suit". pure cargo cultism.
nubbins`: i was ruminating on this the other day
nubbins`: HOW CAN HE KNOW BUSINESS
nubbins`: HE WEARS NOT THE UNIFORM
nubbins`: strange creatures, humans
mircea_popescu: the obnoxious part is that i wear suits. always have. i was a highscooler with a three piece suit.
mircea_popescu: i happen to like them. but wtf is with all these weasels!
nubbins`: flapping your face = doing business
punkman: I like this: "being friendly: looking out for your interests. being polite: obeying social decorum."
mircea_popescu: lol where's that from ?
punkman: being polite is useless mostly
nubbins`: ^ this shows a fundamental misunderstanding of human nature
punkman: mircea_popescu: not sure I got it from here, but google says: http://sebastianmarshall.com/friendliness-and-politeness
nubbins`: being friendly: having a lel. being polite: inviting others to have a lel.
mircea_popescu: btw, if anyone wants to see me with a fro... http://trilema.com/2011/fototeca-de-haur/ i just dug it up
nubbins`: sebastian marshall had a lel writing that, and we had a lel reading it
nubbins`: we are friendly and he is polite!
punkman: that's a good fro
mircea_popescu: im not friendly! who is this guy

mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: laptop utility belt, now that's an idea.
mircea_popescu: and speaking of ideas, i can't believe nobody invented the spots solarium yet.
mircea_popescu: you could have the light concentrate in particular places, make the girls look like leopards naturally.
mircea_popescu: i bet you there's good money in that.
nubbins`: mottled skin looks diseased
mircea_popescu: not if the spots are large enough
mircea_popescu: if they're say 2x2 to 3x5 or so they look... you know, like a leopard
nubbins`: http://www.truehealthclinic.org/images/vitiligo_c_p_BEFORE.jpg
nubbins`: yep, majestic hunter
nubbins`: you'd need to keep tanning the same spots too, so you'd end up with your skin prematurely aged in certain areas
punkman: you could take a vinyl body suit and cut some holes, wouldn't be very comfortable to tan in
nubbins`: wrinkle spots by age 30
mircea_popescu: you just get one burn-in session
mircea_popescu: then come back next year for a new configuration
nubbins`: http://radiantskinclinic.com/resources/wp-content/uploads/2006/07/Skin_Lightening_Category.jpg

BingoBoingo: The wonders or beauracracy: Fill out the form or devise your own identical form http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/jurisprudence/2014/01/little_sisters_contraception_mandate_case_it_s_about_more_than_just_a_form.html
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo that entire dispute is pretty much a testament to how fundamentally unworkable the system has become
mircea_popescu: can you explain to me what it's about ?
mircea_popescu: i mean... i don't get it, i consider myself educated and so forth but i can't come to a conclusion
truffles: an intellectual but not a genius :D
mircea_popescu: are they saying "we don't have to sign something we don't want to sign because jesus" ? is it mopre like "we don't want to say anything definite about abortion in writing because we can't grok the consequences" ?
mircea_popescu: it half reads like "forms make baby jesus cry" tbh.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Basically some group had a religious objection to a form (they were nuns) . They pretested the need to complete the form in court. The court said well, you don't need to do that form, but you can fill out this identical form we imagineered or produce your own identical form. (the form relating to some Obamacar Birth Control thing)
mircea_popescu: no i know the generalities.
mircea_popescu: but WHY did they protestg, what's being objected to exactly ?
BingoBoingo: Well, that they have to fill out a form to not cover birth control for their employees.
BingoBoingo: Basically there being a form at all seems to actually make Baby Jesus cry was their argument.
BingoBoingo: Not that they had to cover the birth control, but that there was a form.
mircea_popescu: and how's a court supposed to rule on that ?
mircea_popescu: they need the fucking rota.
kakobrekla: they checked for tears
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: "sorry, no tears were found. case dismissed"

mircea_popescu: !b 18 ✂︎
truffles: sad display circle jerk
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 20 @ 0.43 = 8.6 BTC [+]
BingoBoingo: I am sad to announce that I don't want to bet on this superbowl. When the most interesting player is the fucking underdog's cornerback... I'm out.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo you know, i burned a lot of cycles on the subject of why the fuck sports bets are faring so poorly on bitbet.
truffles: betting on sports is like watching money leave pocket
kakobrekla: >Furthermore, notice that a winning bet of .011 returns less than the bet itself (despite its weight), if you even happen to get it.
mircea_popescu: the obvious explanation, and perhaps the likely one, is that bitbet just isn't particularly central in the betting space.
kakobrekla: LMAO
BingoBoingo: truffles: I'm net up on the past year
kakobrekla: "Hi, im a brick, i have opinions."
truffles: sample size 1 year
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Prolly bitbet isn lagging on sports because it is too good at finance
mircea_popescu: however, it may also be that SPORTS BETTING isn't central. or in other words : the focus on advertising, scandal and bullshit, as wel las changing social mores and expectations have pretty much killed that model.
truffles: lemme know in 3 or more
mircea_popescu: nobody cares anymore about sports, and the bets continue sort-of by inertia, like investment in yahoo continues.
Duffer1: MP or there's not enough sports book being made to attract a betting crowd
mircea_popescu: so in that theory, they will exist in old venues (like days ago someone mentioned old style phone service that's still continued . to the death of the captive customer)
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 50 @ 0.00437075 = 0.2185 BTC [+] {5}
mircea_popescu: but in new venues it ain't happening.
mircea_popescu: Duffer1 nowhere ?
BingoBoingo: Well, of course it is inertia. It also pulls the sports bettors to more dangerous venues that offer lines on as many competitions as possible, as opposed to safe ole bitbet that only tries to offer profitable competitions
BingoBoingo: Basically Bitbet is too responsible to attract sports bettors.
mircea_popescu: so perhaps a correct model could be, "sports betting consists of people who lived in the 70s, had fun with bets in the 70s, continuing to do what they did then, where they did it then"
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 10 @ 0.43099999 = 4.31 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: if that's the case, a start-up hoping to get that market on a new model would be kinda doomed. the paying customer is too old to move and the young customer does not exist.
BingoBoingo: Prolly and nao where it interesects with bitcoin includes you kids who wish they were in the 70's so they could sync iPods on their PDP-11
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo but there are plenty of insane bets on bitbet
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 20 @ 0.43624848 = 8.725 BTC [+] {6}
ThickAsThieves: [07:25] <mircea_popescu> you buncha commies. you redistributed it did you <<< There is no escape from decentralization, chaos is nature after all!
mircea_popescu: perhaps not the right kind of insane.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Right, but I imagine most sports bettors never had the money to make a dent in the 2B difficulty bet.
Duffer1: bets not being created doesn't necessarily mean lack of interest in betting with bitcoin, if there was a specific section dedicated to live odds sports book it just might attract more people
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 10 @ 0.44649998 = 4.465 BTC [+] {3}
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 15600 @ 0.00088522 = 13.8094 BTC [+] {2}
mircea_popescu: Duffer1 there's at least half a dozen diff sites that tried - and failed - to live on that model.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: As far as football this year goes though, the NFL has had one on its most boring years in history.
Duffer1: i wouldn't know, just a thought ^.^
mircea_popescu: the problem is this : other than the intrinsic unfairness to the bettors of the line model, it also requires VERY highly skilled people working for the hgouse, and non stop.
mircea_popescu: you can't afford to pay for these without volume.
kakobrekla: bah fuck you, now i replied.
BingoBoingo: Last year Ray Lewis was in the Superbowl for stabbin bitches. This year Richard Sherman is in for yelling.

mircea_popescu: if you don't pay for them, then you'll get raped.
herbijudlestoids: you dont think HFT bots can handle the job mircea_popescu?
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids on whose software ?
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: They those bots have openings too.
ThickAsThieves: <mircea_popescu> nobody cares anymore about sports, and the bets continue sort-of by inertia, like investment in yahoo continues. <<< maybe it's like the forum sports betting is just a buncha scammers and noobs alt-betting
mircea_popescu: hft bots aren't a magic amulet, like "bitcoin makes me anon so i can buy drugz"
herbijudlestoids: i guess ot make a good bot would require similar investment to having good people
BingoBoingo: HTF bots get owned by Slow penetrating bots
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.5 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: it's a war race.
herbijudlestoids: good bot+infrastructure
herbijudlestoids: arms race?
herbijudlestoids: yea
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves i have no idea what's going on, tbh.
ThickAsThieves: it's really way simpler an explanation
ThickAsThieves: you have no exposure to the sports betting audience
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 11 @ 0.51416231 = 5.6558 BTC [+] {4}
herbijudlestoids: moral of the story: just like all other businesses, an appropriate level of investment is required to have a successful outcome
BingoBoingo: I mean the people who claim to bitcoin sportsbet seem to overlap with the BTC poker people
ThickAsThieves: they dont even own bitcoins
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves this is factual. the question of interest however, is if such an audience even exists, and other such things.
truffles: betting site but doesnt know market hmmm
mircea_popescu: truffles nobody knows the market. some people admit to it.
herbijudlestoids: ThickAsThieves: if you offered them a betting model that has a lower house commission, etc they might be very interested
ThickAsThieves: it's like trying to sell truffles at a Patriots game
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids what's the house comission on line betting normally ? 2-5% ?
ThickAsThieves: theyll be like eww mushrooms!
herbijudlestoids: yea about that
truffles: haha
mircea_popescu: bitbet does 1%
herbijudlestoids: but is there good game coverage and high liquidity?
mircea_popescu: the difference to your risk of ruin between 1 and 4% is HUGE
herbijudlestoids: yep
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 58 @ 0.00438319 = 0.2542 BTC [+] {4}
mircea_popescu: it has more liquidity than vegas and no coverage at all
mircea_popescu: in spite of coverage being self-serve.
herbijudlestoids: so then i would posit its simply a matter of marketing
mircea_popescu: bitbet actually PAYS 100 dollars for every bet made, yet people don't make sports bets.
herbijudlestoids: did anyone allocate $500,000 or $1,000,000 to marketing?
mircea_popescu: it would seem so, but i have suspicions that it's simply a question of there not being a market.
herbijudlestoids: hmm
ThickAsThieves: yeah
mircea_popescu: which is a question that has to be resolved bfore i throw money at marketing people.
chetty: The federal agency charged with helping consumers make better financial decisions is facing questions about how it has managed its own money.
mircea_popescu: i have no doubt they can spend it.
ThickAsThieves: dont go marketing truffles to football fans
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 13500 @ 0.00088532 = 11.9518 BTC [+]

ThickAsThieves: it makes no sense
mircea_popescu: ahahaha chetty that's gold
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves obviously more research is needed here. for one thing, how do we even know they're truffles.
herbijudlestoids: the other option is ramp the entry costs and target high net worth betters
mircea_popescu: just cause we think we're pretty cool ?
herbijudlestoids: offer the 1% rate as a high net worth perk
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 5 @ 0.51677618 = 2.5839 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids i would love to target high net work bettors, strictly to hear why they think it sucks.
ThickAsThieves: well what is the most popular form of sports betting, its that intrade shares shit right?
mircea_popescu: i don't have a book. anyone has/knows someone with a large old style book ?
herbijudlestoids: many moons ago i used to work as an ops guy for a large cable tv company
BingoBoingo: You know for someone who uses shady forum advertised sports books quite a bit... I prolly ought to look harder at who runs them.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves intrade is ded. not sure if popular tbh, but definitely dead.
herbijudlestoids: and one of the security guards happened to be extremely well off, but he worked as a guard to keep the tax offic eoff his back

ThickAsThieves: ok new plan
mircea_popescu: then i'd have their book, go through the past 20 years, talk to everyone.
ThickAsThieves: hire the manager
mircea_popescu: the manager is probably under a contract.

BingoBoingo: truffles: The things are these are things no one knows
herbijudlestoids: i thought i knew someone in online sports advertising but it was music and the business has been sold to VICE anyway
ThickAsThieves: sports bettings seems like such a chore, gawd
mircea_popescu: it is a fucking chore.
mircea_popescu: buncha old farts who think themselves cutting edge because they sorta-can read the email their granddaughter sends
BingoBoingo: ThickAsThieves: Betting is a chore. I could not imagin the pain of running a venture.
mircea_popescu: except they miss about half the pics, like say the drunken shots of her getting shagged in front of the courthouse.
ThickAsThieves: nah sports is a whole other level of pain
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: what about if instead of a bank
herbijudlestoids: you contacted one of the hedge funds that deals in bitcoins
herbijudlestoids: and asked them to do the accq?
mircea_popescu: the ones that failed to get listed on mpex and imagine they're into bitcoin ?
mircea_popescu: yeah, this sounds promising. and i'll have to do what, explain to them what they're doing wrong ?

mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids so make them simple rather than open.
ThickAsThieves: then,
ThickAsThieves: even if you make it, to be, say, a Creative Director
ThickAsThieves: you learn that all your designers hate you
ThickAsThieves: for trying to finaly get your way

mircea_popescu: this is why you make your designers work nude and spank them occasionally.
mircea_popescu: then they still hate you but a) you're having fun and b) they also love you.
ThickAsThieves: well
ThickAsThieves: even when you do get one
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.6345 BTC [+]

mircea_popescu: that was the lousiest bait ever.
mircea_popescu: ozbot you're fired.
ThickAsThieves: they leave after a year or two
mircea_popescu: why would they leave ?!
ThickAsThieves: grass is greener
ThickAsThieves: careers
ThickAsThieves: etc
mircea_popescu: how could grass be greener ?
herbijudlestoids: because as it turns out, not *all* jobs are about doing what everyone else says and if youve got talent you can command those jobs
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.6345 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: if you don't have the greenest grass wtf are you doing
ThickAsThieves: i had one girl that left to go work with all girls

davout: yay, assets became SFW again
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: maybe democracy isnt what i mean. i want more information to be freely available so those who are interested in it can use it to make informed decisions. to "level the playing field"
ThickAsThieves: all my programmers seemed to have insecurity issues
ThickAsThieves: or drinking problems

herbijudlestoids: but if i cant efficiently allocate it then i wont allocate it to anything but cash and gold since im risk averse
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids there's a subtle point involved here : back when information cost money you had a bunch of ignoramuses clearly labeled as such and lots of educated people.
mircea_popescu: in the wake of wikipedia you have strictly ignoramuses with delusions of education
herbijudlestoids: really?
mircea_popescu: and a few old people left over. once they die that's it.

herbijudlestoids: so economists used to be better at predicting the economy and now they suck?
herbijudlestoids: or economists have always sucked at predicting the economy and now we know it
ThickAsThieves: predicting, lol
herbijudlestoids: excuse my colloquialism
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids if you take the whole predictive discourse of economy in 1913 and compare to 2013
herbijudlestoids: forecast
mircea_popescu: you will find a marked decline in the average quality.
davout: wouldn't "forecasting" be a better match?
mircea_popescu: this is BECAUSE a democratic view to specialist fields is harmful for everyone involved :
mircea_popescu: the idiots, the professionals, society at large.
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: as someone who actually sits on SSRN in his free time reading research old and new i kind of disagree
mircea_popescu: well perhaps my view is wrong.
mircea_popescu: maybe someone takes the time to settle this.
herbijudlestoids: i dunno about your view but i am just saying predictive discourse was worse in 1913 than now
mircea_popescu: tho it's a huge task, you can't even read all the deluge of today
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Maybe subscribe to some more interesting stuff than SSRN
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids worse, in what measure ?
ThickAsThieves: is it really a prediction if it was the plan all along?
herbijudlestoids: in resolution, accuracy, understanding, etc
mircea_popescu: i strictly mean, average quality went down, in the sense the understanding displayed dwindled. not in the sense better predictions were done
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: plenty of interesting stuff from hedge funds and instos goes up there as working papers daily ;)
mircea_popescu: (the reason you'll never have better predictions is modelled in http://trilema.com/2012/anonimity-or-the-urban-versus-rural-dispute/

mircea_popescu: nubbins` it's like the SAT, except to even show on the scale in s7 you need about 98% on the sat.

mircea_popescu: nubbins` i guess it depends whose.
nubbins`: that's like almost half a house!
nubbins`: "sez here you lost an incredible amount of money to some website. do you know who runs it?" "some guy named doug, i think"
herbijudlestoids: in aus the house price to avg salary ratio is double the US, so 100BTC is like, 20% at best for the value of a house here :P
nubbins`: herbijudlestoids: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-01-2014#465989 ☝︎

mircea_popescu: which is it, 70k or 49k ?
mircea_popescu: schroedingaustralia ?
herbijudlestoids: err sorry lol 49k in US
mircea_popescu: gdp/capita is a poor measure of salaries, anyway.
herbijudlestoids: but in both cases very close to the avg salary
nubbins`: well, what's in an average
mircea_popescu: ro gdp/capita is like 8k. average salary is like 500, minimum wage is a whopping 150 dollars.
nubbins`: know the average income of the city bill gates lives?
herbijudlestoids: some form of aggregate understanding?
nubbins`: s/understanding/data
mircea_popescu: like 2/3 of the population makes that minimum wage.
herbijudlestoids: just checked to confirm US avg salary is $52k USD and AUS avg salary is $73k AUD, evens out to be about 50/70 on a PP basis
mircea_popescu: point remains, there is a LOT of variance in both housing prices and salaries in the us.
mircea_popescu: the "half a house" comment probably references older discussions re the housing market in central ohio
nubbins`: nah just going on my own house
nubbins`: only one person who regulars this chan cares about central ohio ;p
ThickAsThieves: it's like $2800 for 1000sqft in San Francisco and $800/mo for a 1700sqft house in north Florida
nubbins`: so many people from around here own houses in florida now
nubbins`: imagine, the descendants of fishmongers from what is historically canada's poorest province, scooping up florida real estate like monopoly properties
nubbins`: not sure if it says more about here or there
mircea_popescu: The “True Love Tester” bra can’t be masterfully unhooked by some skeevy player who hit on the wearer at a club. No, this bra only comes undone when sensors embedded inside it that are connected wirelessly to a smartphone app detect a particular heart rate

mircea_popescu: get on the stairmaster, tits go out

nubbins`: say, a rendition of creature x
mircea_popescu: uh
mircea_popescu: what are you trying to do, let's start at that end
nubbins`: haha.
nubbins`: make a forum
nubbins`: specifically, one with some sort of in-game beastie incorporated into the logo
mircea_popescu: so enjoy.
nubbins`: lovely
nubbins`: not a lot to discuss yet, but figured it'd be nice to have something in place for when there is
mircea_popescu: just don't start with any thermos bs.
nubbins`: well i was thinking about banning everyone by default
mircea_popescu: lol
nubbins`: (srsly)
nubbins`: hence the original question ;D
mircea_popescu: well then if you ban everyone what do i care ? i'll never know.
nubbins`: you'd probably get an honorary membership
nubbins`: i mean, uh, un-baning
nubbins`: *banning
mircea_popescu: so what exactly aren;t you saying ?
nubbins`: it's a pay forum
mircea_popescu: well no, you can't do that.
nubbins`: aha
mircea_popescu: why do you want to make a pay forum anyway
nubbins`: (a) to cover costs and (b) to get paid
nubbins`: justifiable if the content is there
nubbins`: for instance, gigposters.com forums costs $20/year for "premium" membership
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 162 @ 0.00615889 = 0.9977 BTC [+]
nubbins`: not required, but you're mercilessly browbeaten if you leech too much good advice without buying one.

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 2 @ 0.63 = 1.26 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: but listen, if what you want is to get paid, you should do something else than a forum
mircea_popescu: forums are god awful for this purpose. do something that pays.
azi`: so weird.. if you want to withdraw funds from mtgox and send them to another BTC you are faced with "invalid BTC address" error multiple times and it only works after a random amount of "submit clicks..

b0n1: hey there! I just read an interesting article about the sefnit botnet (http://blogs.technet.com/b/mmpc/archive/2014/01/09/tackling-the-sefnit-botnet-tor-hazard.aspx) And I was wondering in what way this correlates with the litecoin mining difficulty
b0n1: what do you think? The drop at january is much later than the cleaning update, right? Did they clean directly when the cleaner was included in the microsoft update, or did they install the cleaner and trigger them simultaneously at a given time in the middle of january?

mod6: *suppose

herbijudlestoids: i do, like i said last night, just an idea that came to me then
herbijudlestoids: http://imgur.com/CkJ5kA8 <-- here is a distribution of the overnight tick returns
ozbot: imgur: the simple image sharer
herbijudlestoids: quite an interesting looking formation
kakobrekla: whats the x axis
herbijudlestoids: i log normalise the return between ticks
herbijudlestoids: x axis is the value of those returns
kakobrekla: return between ticks?
kakobrekla: you mean price difference?
herbijudlestoids: its the % return if you had invested in the asset at the tick
herbijudlestoids: (log normalised)
kakobrekla: hm

herbijudlestoids: its a pretty normal way to break the timeseries down in quantitative analysis, but usually at a lower resloution than per tick
herbijudlestoids: once i build up some data and refine my timestamping etc i will start to record 10 sec data from the ticks and then build all the lower resolutions from that high res feed
herbijudlestoids: so you can see, the distribution of daily returns or, the 10-tick volatility, etc
herbijudlestoids: also would like to figure out if there is a diurnal pattern in the assets
herbijudlestoids: i cant show you some of the other stuff iv grabbed because i didnt timestamp properly and R wont plot it nicely
