asciilifeform: asciilifeform used 'dieharder' to reject a handful of screamingly defective analogue units , but currently isn't sure that it's good for much re a ~working~ one
asciilifeform: ( the grade outputted by the 'hungrier' tests appears to be in direct proportion to sample size, and very little else; and FG, /dev/urandom, various fashionable prng, intel's mysterymeatrng, and several others, all exhibit same effect, 100% pass begins somewhere b/w 1-3GB sample size. )
asciilifeform: the idiotic 'looping' cannot (afaik) be switched off. (yes i could patch the src but the result will be a nonstandard tester )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the problem is insoluble and dieharder/ent/etc are fundamentally braindamaged. there's no way to avoid the "give it a large enough sample it'll show 100%" problem specifically because there's no such thing as random bitstream.

mircea_popescu: because i've had it explaining this in private : yes http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-19#1659420 goes to 1. for the same money, f(x) = 1/n^x g(x) = 1/x converge to 1/n, which is any arbitrary value (including 0 when n=x so f(x) = 1/x^x. nfi why this isn't evident, but anyway.
a111: Logged on 2017-05-19 20:27 mircea_popescu: anyway, to humor you and with absolutely no dispositive intent : let f(x) = 1/x ; let g(x) = 1/x*2. let x ->n. 0**0 = 1 implies x -> 1 when x->n.

BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski ben_vulpes and other vehicular inclined lords, do you have any thoughts on 2-wheeled transporters?
pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo: motorless is preferable. makes for stronger legs and leaves more skin attached to body.
BingoBoingo: <mod6> wear a helmet << plan for at least first 10 kilomiles
BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: But motorless doesn't sound like enraged lawnmower
pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo: that's why you put in headphones for maximum soundtrack. you can then listen to anything in the world other than the pissed cars and pedestrians flipping you off after you cut them off
BingoBoingo: That doesn't sound much like oppressing others
pete_dushenski: motorless also has the advantage of being immune to road laws. it's like having diplomatic immunity

pete_dushenski: as an aside, this mircea_popescu retelling blows my feeble canadian mind no matter how many times i read it. i'm not sure there's been a single person in the history of this great arable land that's had an impromptu motorcade like that.
mircea_popescu: it's so fucking amusing to me, how derps always pretend like they got all the optionality and all the time in the world. hurr durr i'm some random chick, almost hot, almost smart ? clearly i don't have to jump on this guy the moment i see him. nah, let time pass, let me "figure things out", he'll still be here. then get all butthurt when "that slut" did EXACTLY what subs shopuld be doing. "omg she just jumped on him started t

trinque: girl's a nanny to this derpy liberal fambly, shiftless dad says to breadwinner surgeon mother "something something web wallet oh also I have this shitty antminer". mother immediately asks "how will they tax it though". girl asks whether he actually holds the private keys, rolls eyes.
mircea_popescu: anyway, working great for them, soberania & argentina no es un pais pobre ftw. meanwhile they ain't got two empanadas to rub together and uni profs are buying socks on credit.
diana_coman: mircea_popescu> for as long as your antecessors accumulated fat lasts, you can pretend. after which, welcome to jobbagy, and complain to my asshole about "the unfairness of it all". <- well, fat of ancestors can only be eaten/spent, but not sustained without own muscle; so basically it makes sense: they are searching for their own *real* level/position as downwards as that might be; not as if they are aware of it or need be, bu
mircea_popescu: only known similar example being soviet union. stalin - also elected. except rosas didn't actually behead his own lieutenants or all thje rest of the nonsense associated with stalinism. which is why they never fucking mention him.
trinque: might be racis, but the more tribal types always end up 1) out-fucking and 2) opting for dr prince james ibonga
mircea_popescu: im not sure there is such a thing as a tribal type. basically any group of hucows has some humans and some cows mixed in. what you call "tribal types" is where cows are biologically dominant. cultivate the population for a few generations, it's just as capable to northern italy 15cento as northern italy itself. which, if you decultivate for a few generations...etc.
mircea_popescu: the interplay between biological (ie, headcount) and political (ie, powerspeech count) domination in the hucow herd is ~the whole of history, anthropology, sociology etc.
trinque: aha, totally agree. was groping for same with "animated by will of superiors"
mircea_popescu: i suppose the retrospective correct analysis is, 1. you get a bunch of elite people get together (everyone who made the trip was elite -- else they couldn't afford the significant proceedings ; this includes the slaves, for the same reason -- if they weren't 10s nobody'd have taken them across and that's what in africa cca then it meant to be elite) ; 2. they have no way to communicate, for lack of language (because language
a111: Logged on 2016-12-21 18:32 mircea_popescu: because no, words don't "have meanings". your meanings for ANY WORD are a function of ALL THE OTHER WORDS YOU KNOW. which is why my definitions regularily blow out english dictionaries, wikipedia and other sources of "wisdom" out of the water - i know more words, and in this knowledge i know all the words i know ~better~. infinitely and irreproducibly so.
mircea_popescu: if this does not prove bible is a poisonous, anti-human text which one follows to his perdition, nothing does.
asciilifeform: the plantators were , by all indications, aware of this
mircea_popescu: obviously the elite christian response would be to point out that the basis of unholy communion was in no sense the holy writ, but merely what every language recalled of it, which is to say they distilled all the holy out of the writ.
mircea_popescu: perhaps. nevertheless... unreliable item. (which is exactly catholic doctrine : "follow bible without priest, you'll go straight to hell in handbasked". it sounds absurd but then again it's lived history.)
mircea_popescu: country of africa (good) ; country of muslim (neonazi) ; country of russia (spies) ; country of china (daddy!) ; country of our democracy.
mircea_popescu: the five provinces of the world. wu shu or w/e it';s called.
mircea_popescu: for instance : the reason for eg, "trump is nazi" narrative is possibly mostly based on the observation that country of russia bothers and disturbs country of our democracy just like country of muslim bothers and disturbs the good country of africa and therefore the russians must be nazis and probably the muslims are also spies! notwithstanding that they have serious problems with comprehending basic crypto etc. trump must be
mircea_popescu: which is the true boon of democracy : if everyone must be a people because they look kinda like one, then everything must be something else because it vaguely looks like it, and welcome to the dark ages.
diana_coman: they were distributing some staff from canada's travel recommendations re "stay safe in argentina" for some reason; apparently some "laptop-stealing exercises" were quite well-planned as in 2-3 people, goop on the target's backpack, "helping" etc
asciilifeform: 'Whether it's corporations or governments, digital surveillance today is widespread. Tox is easy-to-use software that connects you with friends and family without anyone else listening in. ' << lol!!
mircea_popescu: diana_coman you know, ~everyone there wears their rucksacks in front like total fucking retards (the REASON that type of bag was invented by zee germanz, and the reason it became popular esp for schoolkids, is that it leverages the weight to improve posture. IF you weart it correctly.)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not tox, the other one. tox we already lulzed at.

asciilifeform: compared performance of 'kindergarten' multiplier ( halfword at a time, uses machine's MUL instr. which apparently IS constant-time on x86 (but NOT on arm! would need test routine at warmup to establish if can use MUL ) )
asciilifeform: halfword, rather than word, at a time, because of the idiocy of compilers, which LOSE the carry flag (see last 4 or so threads re subj)
mircea_popescu: wait until i point out i've never met anyone under 30 who both spoke english and could properly butcher a goat.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform could. i have this magic want which takes the "would" away.
ben_vulpes: it's not just that nobody bothers to fix the toilets, it's that they literally /cannot/, would rather prattle on at city council about implementing new taxes to pay for urban community gardens to feed the poor kale or what the fuck ever eudaly wants to wank off to this week
shinohai: Simple, we use our feces to fertilize garden and therefore need no toilets!
a111: Logged on 2017-05-20 19:16 mircea_popescu: Framedragger come to think about it, the logic actually follows. nature is red in tooth and claw. the hysteria of "removing the red from nature's tooth and claw", usually sold by the "our democracy" lunatics as "rule of law" or equivalent, directly runs all the way to "male penis is not reproductive organ but social construct".
asciilifeform: by same logic price of toilet may very well be imbecility
