asciilifeform: meanwhile in pertinent oldies, http://trilema.com/2016/ideological-history-of-the-republic/
mircea_popescu: heh
mircea_popescu: this is actually a great fucking article!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: perhaps deserves a sequel ?
mircea_popescu: i think so.
mircea_popescu: and in other "omg i can't believe this still exists", http://violentacres.com/two-phrases-that-destroyed-american-culture/
mod6: asciilifeform: I can confirm that your new patches & sigs (posted above) at least ~press~ happily: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/1islx/?raw=true
mod6: <+diana_coman> I can confirm this version presses with mod6's vtron << thanks for checking this out too!
asciilifeform: neato. ty mod6 .

asciilifeform: lol mircea_popescu : asciilifeform habitually read the chix, ~decade ago

mircea_popescu: ikr ?
mircea_popescu: was one of the maybe i dunno, 6 ? 10 ? bloggers worth the mention.
mircea_popescu: "sweetney" (period idiot) meanwhile morphed into tracey gaughran, for instance. lives in baltimore, is a "digital content and strategy" aka http://trilema.com/2014/the-battlefield-of-the-future/#selection-31.1330-31.1456

mircea_popescu: re http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-15#1656598 since might as well archive it, http://gawker.com/5950981/unmasking-reddits-violentacrez-the-biggest-troll-on-the-web
a111: Logged on 2017-05-15 21:59 mircea_popescu: anywya, im not reading this pile of garbage ; but from the skimming -- the whole argument is born of ignorance. reddit got its start as a heaven for child porn peddlers who got banned on digg.
diana_coman: hm, is there a clear convention re patch names ? using - or _ as separators? mod6's *very useful* guide at http://therealbitcoin.org/ml/btc-dev/2015-September/000168.html seems to suggest _ but the collection of patches seems to use both - and _
mircea_popescu: _
mircea_popescu: mod6 mind adding the "no clearsigned material in patches -- you got the .sig for that" and "no '--- ' anywhere, you have been warned" rules to it ; and phf / everyone mind making it stick ?
mircea_popescu: noncompliant items can i guess go in 'experimental' or whatever ghetto.
mircea_popescu: let me change that : "no '--- ' anywhere, you have been warned" should read "no '--- ' or '+++ ' as first 4 characters of any line -- you have been warned"
mircea_popescu: trinque !
mircea_popescu: o hey it stopped. magic.
diana_coman: and hm, maybe update the vdiff linked from http://thebitcoin.foundation/ if there's a newer version
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: in other things that happened in 2017, michael vick quit.
mircea_popescu: (only famous for organizing dogfights in defiance of femocracy & pantsuit)
diana_coman has no idea who michael vick is
mircea_popescu: one of the any other famous "afro-american" blacks (ie, athlete)

BingoBoingo: In miscelanous reflections that ought to have made yesterday's log except for brain lag, on the small regional flight economy plus was totally worth it. Window, your seat, aisle, pair of suckers.
diana_coman: BingoBoingo, in Europe at least the "difference" between economy and business class on small regional flights is quite often a... curtain drawn to separate the 2 areas of the aircraft, but not much else (same seats, same space/lack of it, same food if you really need airplane-food on a 2-3 hours flight)
BingoBoingo: diana_coman: There was no business class on the embraer 145, just "ecomomy" on the two seat side of the aisle and "economy plus" on the solo seat side
diana_coman: oh, really small plane
BingoBoingo: The embraer during take off had a feel like my saturn plastic car, that there just might not be enough power to pull off this aviation thing
diana_coman: hm, if I'm looking at the right model it still is some reasonable size; I flew a couple of times to Rome on some 15-seats plane and that was always... interesting
BingoBoingo: From there it was a United 737-800 which gave off a 90's vibe in its plastic, especially compared to the Copa 737-800 which was new but full of infants
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i had a ride in an even tinier thing in ro, even had propellers
BingoBoingo: diana_coman asciilifeform Ah, it's a plane that seems to find its niche in routes that have demand to be done frequently, but only so many people at a time
asciilifeform: ( granted, turboprop, not piston. but still )
mircea_popescu: diana_coman business class got me discretionary rum, which was fucking worth it btw.
mircea_popescu: i went from "just about ready to burn this shit down" to having a grand ole mellow time in the ten minutes it took to get two refills.
BingoBoingo did meet some very nice venezualans last night
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, lol, it was surely worth it for them then at least
mircea_popescu: aha.
diana_coman: while I usually do have rum in the house it's (at least supposedly) meant for..caek
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-07#1747872 << i was in one of those yellowed plastics, panama->bolivia, and thought 'this could easily be same boeing i came to usa on in '92'

mircea_popescu: diana_coman you don't have good rum.
mircea_popescu: i never managed to find drinkable rum in the old world. so i only drink it this side
diana_coman doesn't claim much rum-knowledge
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Was that a Copa plane?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the latter? yea
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform pretty sure i flew tm-bucharest in an actual piston thing.

asciilifeform: 'The Restatement (Second) of Torts § 559 lists “membership in the Ku Klux Klan” as the quintessential illustration of a defamatory statement. In an opinion piece in The Detroit News, columnist Bankole Thompson asserted that radio show host James Edwards is a “leader” of the Ku Klux Klan. There is no record evidence to suggest that Edwards holds a formal leadership position in the Ku Klux Klan, nor is there any record evidence
asciilifeform: this lack of formal relationship, Edwards has espoused views consistent with those associated with the Klan and, equally as important, he has repeatedly and publicly embraced several individuals who are strongly associated with the Klan. Mindful of Aesop's lesson, “A man is known by the company he keeps,” 1 we hold that Edwards cannot make claims of defamation or invasion of privacy and affirm summary disposition in favor of defe

mircea_popescu: gah.
asciilifeform: trinque there ?
mircea_popescu: this new host is pretty shitty.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, mind publishing somewhere your current vdiff?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that's some pretty great legal reasoning right there. "the factual accuracy of statements can now be derived from the company one keeps -- for isntance, a man can not be sued for practicing medicine without a license for as long as he does it within sight of actual doctors"
mircea_popescu: where the fuck do they find these mental molluscs ?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: pretty sure it is same as mod6 has on trb www
diana_coman: that one seems to still spit timestamps on my machine at least
diana_coman: I did tweak it but I might have gotten something wrong and I'd rather rule this part out before hunting for issues
mircea_popescu: i wonder what laws of magic will be invoked to pretend that tort "ruling" is not precedent for de-licensing medicine.

diana_coman: ftr mod6 you might want to update it on foundation's website
asciilifeform: mod6 appears to have my same vdiff
asciilifeform: and not the ancient timestamp-shitting one
diana_coman: ugh, at http://thebitcoin.foundation/ yes; I followed the links from http://therealbitcoin.org/ml/btc-dev/2015-September/000168.html though and ended up with old one

BingoBoingo: The biggest impression montevideo is making on me is that it needs a trip to the BingoBoingo store for white lithium grease and toilet seats that aren't made out of particleboard
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-07#1747903 << the reality of present-day usg is that precedent is precedent when they feel like it, and unprecedent when they unfeellikeit

BingoBoingo: because caught "systemically doping"

mircea_popescu: the ~equivalent move to pantsuit "We will take down mount rushmore"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i don't recognize usg-painted map.
mircea_popescu: it's all one big west.
asciilifeform: i can picture
mircea_popescu: "While a handful of monuments have been resized in the past, none has been cut back to such an extent, putting the president’s proclamation in uncharted legal territory."
mircea_popescu: pantsuit continues to understand how the law works.
asciilifeform: on top of this i dun recognize the distinction between the two bureaucracies the ownership of said lands is being moved between
asciilifeform: they are part of same usg.
diana_coman: ugh; now I have a situation in which mod6's v simply drops on the floor my patch, while asciilifeform's v sees it correctly in the flow BUT when pressing it barfs saying that a readme file that the patch deletes does not exist as a result of previous patch WHILE pressing previous patch actually creates that file;
mircea_popescu: if this woman started responsibly a day early with all this and she's STILL gonna miss her today deadline ima hang someone
mircea_popescu: and it won't likely be her.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: tar it up plox, and post, looks very much like you have a mistake on your end. mod6 was able to press last night.
asciilifeform: or is subject diana_coman's new patch.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, I CAN PRESS your patches
diana_coman: this is new patch on top , yes
asciilifeform: ok breathe, count 10, post tar.
asciilifeform: i'ma go to tea and look.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, http://dianacoman.com/available_resources/testpatch.tar.gz
mircea_popescu: diana_coman you should prolly have version numbers on these by now. testpatch-16
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, tbh I lost count; more like delete and create whole thing again, on the verge of making bash scripts for each project anyway
mircea_popescu: the hardest thing when reforming bad workflow is to... actually reform anything.
mircea_popescu: cleaning, always and forever the same damned thing.
diana_coman: will try without that readme file change anyway as that's more of an artefact of having run make clean (which deleted it too)
diana_coman: not in any way a point of the patch
asciilifeform: diana_coman: you made small mistake :
asciilifeform: you stripped the dir 'mpi' when you made your diff
asciilifeform: diff/patch is not insensitive to directory structure, or it could not handle dirs at all. in original we have 'a/mpi/bin/README', in yours there is instead 'a/bin/README'.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, ugh, I see
diana_coman goes to try again
asciilifeform: diana_coman: ./vdiff.sh a b
diana_coman: asciilifeform, that is what I did
asciilifeform: what was in a, b ?
diana_coman: but apparently I should have done it on a containing mpi containing the code
asciilifeform: if there isn't 'mpi' in each -- your patch is off
asciilifeform: right.
diana_coman: while I did it on a containing code, wtf
asciilifeform: you can only diff items with same structure.
diana_coman: yes,they HAVE same structure
diana_coman: a and b
diana_coman: just one level lower

asciilifeform still has no real notion of how, if at all, gox tickers relate to real life
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ever measure the voltage of a dead watch battery ?
mircea_popescu: consider it this way : the lazy dumb fat women banded together to produce a joint report as to what they think things should be like. they call it "jezbel" or w/e. it keeps changing.
mircea_popescu: the lazy stupid poor "people themselves" banded together to produce a joint report as to how worthless they think everything about them is, in bitcoin terms.
mircea_popescu: they call it "bitcoin price", except it's obviously the dollar price.
mircea_popescu: that's all it is : how little the poor think their shit's worth.
asciilifeform: exchange-rate-as-scalar is as serious a misconception as battery-voltage-as-scalar .
mircea_popescu: "exchange rate" dun enter into this. think of it as a petition on change.org signed by everyone in the herd.
asciilifeform: i.e. a work of dope-addled fiction ?
asciilifeform: why to even bother having the ticker, then
mircea_popescu: "i think 2 bitcents should buy more than just my daughter. like 50x more."
asciilifeform: we dun have a change.org ticker here..
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, an item of self-description.
mircea_popescu: "i am not worth a whole bitcoin".
mircea_popescu: that's all it is. voluntary self-denial on the part of the worthless.
asciilifeform: except 'worth of 1 bitcoin' is a defective item conceptually, like 'position of electron'
mircea_popescu: why ? some girls had the sense to peg it, some girls are still waiting. it's the perfect nonperson humiliator, this. "if i hold out my tits will be worth more" "ahahahaha, really ?"
asciilifeform: it's a propagating error, like div0, to include it in a logical chain is fatal, regardless of how correct the rest
asciilifeform: whether it works as a humiliator, or spiked club, or tension wrench, is orthogonal question

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i dun think i follow. come again ?
asciilifeform: it can work as a humiliator, just as electron can carry out useful work; but just as we do not reference electron's exact position , it is mistake to reference 'worth of bitcoin'
mircea_popescu: about 5 passes of this "it has nothing to do with bitcoin" and it still didn't take or what are we doing here ?
mircea_popescu: IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BITCOIN. the "bitcoin price" is a statement of the worthless herd as to its own perceived worthlessness. bitcoin dun enter into it.
asciilifeform: i'ma ask a different q : what is the ordering function for these statements ? do 4 zeroes worth of 'we are worthless' actually represent a lower bow than 3 ?
mircea_popescu: when some schmuck writes on his employment application "salary sought - $50", this is not a statement on the value of the dollar.
mircea_popescu: it is a statement on the value of the schmuck.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well, as far as the stater is concerned, yes.

asciilifeform: but how much truth is there in the statement ? picture if mircea_popescu were to drink a defective batch of rum, and goes with 10k btc to a gox. do you for a moment think that they will come up with 1.5e8 usd that day, to give for it ?
mircea_popescu: there can never be any truth in a statement made by the wotless.
asciilifeform: aha!
mircea_popescu: we're discussing the bleating of sheep here, what fucking truth.
mircea_popescu: it's all feeling.
mircea_popescu: that aside, experimentally BingoBoingo produced a gangster roll out of a btc.
asciilifeform: i suppose expert veterinarian might be able to distinguish 'bleats because indigestion' from 'bleats because inside is half-eaten-up by worms'. but asciilifeform cannot.
mircea_popescu: i don't expect anything changed other than same item now costs .5
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform afaik bleat-scrying is not part of veterinarian training.
asciilifeform: spongiencephalopathy perhaps changed this...
asciilifeform does not know.
asciilifeform: phunphakt, Officially Verboten to leave usaschwitz with more than 10k usd 'gangster roll'. so today to carry 1btc's worth of green candywrapper requires arse capsule or similar.
mircea_popescu: see ?
asciilifeform: at some point 'nonlinear' effect begins : consider the difficulty of liquidating a coupla kg of au ( for nonspecialist. ) or for that matter, pu.
mircea_popescu: you keep thinking in these fiat-anchored terms, as fucking if that's how it worked.
mircea_popescu: you can never liquidate it, BECAUSE THERE IS NOT WHAT FOR.
mircea_popescu: you can get everything you want for some pennies.
asciilifeform: for so long as you only want items worth pennies, neh
mircea_popescu: bitcoin penny.
asciilifeform: right
mircea_popescu: "that aside, experimentally BingoBoingo produced a gangster roll out of a btc. i don't expect anything changed other than same item now costs .5" << you get THE ITEM THAT IS. for ever less btc.
mircea_popescu: you can't get TWO because there... aren't... two.
mircea_popescu: all you can get is the whole world, and it costs ever less btc, seeing how the "rate" has to also account for everyone's dreams.
mircea_popescu: which is what the bleaters are importing into bitcoin : their own WoWoW outlook. soon bitcoin "marketcap" will exceed all extant assets. because it has to. because they;'re idiots.
asciilifeform: well not whole world, but $coin/22e6 's cut.
diana_coman: is there some documented process re how to create with V basically a new project that will contain as *internal* components derivations of existing projects? for example: eucrypt will have inside an mpi component; as seen earlier, I can patch mpi directly, but then how do I include the result in a higher structure? can I even do it while preserving the links? (I guess it would mean that resulting project has effectively 2 roots: one the ge
diana_coman: nesis of eucrypt itself and one the genesis of mpi)
asciilifeform: diana_coman: let's carefully specify the question: what means 'internal'
asciilifeform: and 'inside'
asciilifeform: you are using gcc for a linker, neh. it takes arbitrary paths ( observe how i did it in ffa ch.1, it was deliberately illustrative )
mircea_popescu: so how do i patch mpi to become eucrypt/mpi ?
diana_coman: asciilifeform, I can compile it certainly wherever it is; but can I press with V eucrypt with eucrypt/mpi and eucrypt/serpent let's say?
asciilifeform: that part isn't puzzling, it's a straight patch on top of second_cut
diana_coman: hm, I thought I need a/mpi b/mpi ; can I have ..what, a/mpi and b/eucrypt/mpi?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: in the contemplated example, are eucrypt/mpi and eucrypt/serpent plug-in alternatives for each other ?
diana_coman: no, separate parts that eucrypt uses
asciilifeform: there are fundamentally 2 ways to go about using a vtronic item as a component in another. one is to subsume it into your own
asciilifeform: so in that case it is a linear parent ( grandparent etc ) of your item.
asciilifeform: the other is to preserve the two lineages as separate, but to link your item against e.g. mpi.a , and to insert the latter's hash into your vtree, to proclaim the linkage -- as i did with the binariola schematic jpegs in FG genesis.
asciilifeform: iirc mircea_popescu expressed a strong preference for the ~former~ approach, at one point
asciilifeform: asciilifeform prefers the latter. but this is a fundamental sort of decision, i'd ask mircea_popescu , it's his proggy
asciilifeform: it is exceedingly difficult to revise this kind of thing at a later time.
asciilifeform: i'll add only that imho it matters just how strongly-coupled your outer proggy is with the library
asciilifeform: if loosely -- continuation of parallel v-lineages could make sense. if tightly -- marry'em.
asciilifeform: ftr i have no intention of amending mpi myself . if at some time i discover a new kochism therein, i will vdiff against diana_coman's mpi-containing entity
asciilifeform: ( what was asciilifeform going to do with mpi ? there was plan, for 1 further cut, of the logger and the allocator. but i put it in cold storage when began work on ffa . )
diana_coman: asciilifeform, can you work me through the steps to "subsume it into your own"? I don't yet see clearly what that is
asciilifeform: it means that you simply lift the code from the press.
asciilifeform: when drawn in phf's viewer, this will appear as a graph with two genesisen. which mircea_popescu seems to have allergy for, for some reason. but there is nothing outrageous mechanically about it.
asciilifeform: the important aspect is to avoid the mistake asciilifeform made early on in vtronic era, with 'tinyscheme' proggy
asciilifeform: where the linkage was ~not~ mechanically clear, because it appeared merely as a set of external symbols inside trb, rather than a proper lift of the files
asciilifeform: draw how you want the graph to look. and only then make the diffs. not vice-versa.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform preference or no preference it'll have to be reground
asciilifeform: i'ma make a small cartoon example, brb
mircea_popescu: because having projects incorrectly structured in directories is suicidal.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman you'd make a new genesis, for eucrypt, and patch it with mpi. this patch will share no .sigs with the other mpi it is text-identical to
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what two genesises ?
trinque: with the giant netsplit earlier, I'm skeptical it's the host.
asciilifeform: naturally if yer simply gonna unzip and piss over the vtronic aspect where nobody has to hand-diff 300kB of liquishit -- then yes you dun have 2 genesis.
diana_coman: at some point it seemed it was only me and scriba in chan, lol
trinque: thing's been on that host for months now
asciilifeform: you have instead 300kb of liquishit that seemingly appeared out of thin air.
mircea_popescu: trinque do i unban it ?
asciilifeform: and that you are now responsible for as if you had written it.
trinque: mircea_popescu: I'll peek at logs real quick, then let ya know. it hasn't reconnected since the netsplit
mircea_popescu: kk.
mircea_popescu: it's not altogether clear with me if this discussion unearthed a fundamental bug in v design whereby we have no good way to import projects.
mircea_popescu: why the fuck exactly can't i move project/a to master/project/a through a patch ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu, diana_coman if every single patch you release is a genesis ( i.e. previously existing items are lifted with paste ) then you may as well simply publish signed tarballs, you are not actually using v
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: you can: diff ~the patch~
asciilifeform: you end up with easily readable patch consisting of changed dirs.
mircea_popescu: so then why can't she simply move the mpi/ dir into eucrypt/mpi/ and proceed ?
asciilifeform: she can. i simply just nao thought of it, lol.
asciilifeform: was gonna instead have long painful argument re structures that goes nowhere!111
mircea_popescu: doh.
asciilifeform: but nao dunhaveto.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman ^ that solve it ?
diana_coman: well yes, that was my initial proposal and question "is it possible?" ; if yes, then all nice and cool
mircea_popescu: it'd better be fucking possible because the alternative is madness.
mircea_popescu: as one man said to another once, "if the design impedes you, this will be no problem, as we'll fucking make a new design"
diana_coman will attempt it with some time to spare
asciilifeform: i'd volunteer to make this surgery but doesn't mg have programming folx on retainer..
asciilifeform: make'em do it.
asciilifeform: pretty straightforward op.
asciilifeform: for that matter, order'em to make the 'make' clean properly. also straightforward op. what kind of people cannot set up a make.
asciilifeform: programmers see kindness as weakness, diana_coman . borrow a spiked bat from mircea_popescu , it will work wonders.
asciilifeform: meanwhile in heathendom : http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2017/12/07/1 >> '...Debian switch from gpg1 to gpg2... After getting gpg and agent running, I noticed, that not reliably stopping the gpg-agent on initrd would introduce a private key data leak via /proc from early boot process to running system when stopping fails...' and,
asciilifeform: '...we found out, that the specification of the "--s2k-count" parameter, which specifies the number of rounds of key deriviation function to unlock the private key, has changed from gpgv1 to gpgv2, so that it is ignored in gpg2 but does not cause any warning or error.'
asciilifeform: and various other lulz.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: eventually we are gonna need a sane replacement for unix diff/patch. one that not only has e.g. selectable hashtronics but knows what movement and deletion of files is
asciilifeform: ( unix diff pointedly does not, interprets it as vanishment-into and reappearance-from thin air )

BingoBoingo: I figure I have to use the advantage while it lasts.
BingoBoingo: brb, sober time... en Castellano!

OF COURSE! you don't understand how the world works ?!"
asciilifeform: the only other one i can immediately think of is flynn. but that's recent.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i dunno, hipster chicks these days
mircea_popescu: she thought the conversation was going to be about her or something.
asciilifeform: yea but 'dying inside', wat
asciilifeform: wai such 'emo'.
mircea_popescu: nfi.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-07#1748301 << until hearing of this owngoal, asciilifeform had not the faintest notion that argentines ~had~ a sub
a111: Logged on 2017-12-07 20:57 mircea_popescu: anyway, the pretense of argentina, in all fields, is nothing short of hysterical. they lose a sub, 100% through being TOTAL FUCKTARDS. they act as if adult country had some sort of problem ; as if people on it were qualified -- not to run a sub, but to run a dishwasher and so on.
mircea_popescu: some old diesel shit.
asciilifeform: and i'ma guess was su surplus
mircea_popescu: they used it to spy on fishing boats.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform aha.
asciilifeform: seems a bit overkill neh
mircea_popescu: the only way to correctly represent argentina, joint or several, is by thinking of the dumbest whore you can possibly imagine.
mircea_popescu: they didn't get it for a purpose. they got it because they think owning subs is how you further the pretense of countryhood.
mircea_popescu: argentina is === sealand.
asciilifeform: hey usa is scaled-up version of same item
mircea_popescu: like every dumbass getting a mortgage "because everyone is".
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, but usa is dumb kid of rich parents.
mircea_popescu: argentina... oy vey.
asciilifeform: ar is dumb grandkid of modestly loaded grandparent eh
mircea_popescu: i don't think i ever met an argentine who had any money. at all. ever.
mircea_popescu: yes but what's that do.
asciilifeform: dunno, i saw 'sofas' there that hadn't 'gone to the oven' yet
asciilifeform: e.g. they could sell passports to usa inmates
asciilifeform: or flats. or.
mircea_popescu: i dunno how to break this to you, but "money" is here defined as > 1 gangster rolls.
mircea_popescu: im sure they have epsilon. guess what, so does my staffordshire terrier.
asciilifeform: 'the title to something worthless can always be monetized by making it even more worthless' or how did it go.
asciilifeform: like zhirinovsky's idea of how latvia should make buxxorz -- store fission wastes.
asciilifeform: btw i keep resisting but now gotta ask, how big exactly is a 'gangstaroll' ? when i went to ro i was able to pack a coupla kilobux , is all that will comfortably fold in normal human wallet
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-07#1748296 << i initially misread as 'had to break friendly gringo's face'
a111: Logged on 2017-12-07 20:53 BingoBoingo: How ever gansta roll comes with gangsta responsibilities, so had to break friendly gringo face momentarily for the scooter dork
asciilifeform: and was thinking 'whose face did BingoBoingo have to break for what scooterdork...'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform real gangsters use clips.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-07#1748293 << in ro, zookeeper admonished asciilifeform's pet for letting her passport be seen in the daylight, with 'helpful' pantomime of purse-snatcher dancing away with it
a111: Logged on 2017-12-07 20:49 hanbot: I don't recall ever seeing cleaning crews near the river. or anywhere other than the esquinas of convenience stores. anyway, if they're anything like their southern neighbors ~everyone you meet will warn you about pickpockets/bag snatchers, to the degree someone who doesn't offer such warnings is by that sign a potential friend ;)
mircea_popescu: wallets are for pussies.
mircea_popescu: a man sized clip will hold a whole brick (ie, 100 bills, 50k eur or 10k usd or 5mn colones or w/e), unfolded.
asciilifeform: sounds conspicuous-at-airport tho.
mircea_popescu: hey. they did want to count mine when i landed. i... didn't cooperate (but i did let them watch while i did, so there was that)
mircea_popescu: but anyway, part of gangster notion is that conspicuous is other people's problem.
asciilifeform: i almost expected mircea_popescu to say 'what airport, i have own diplomatic pouch system'
asciilifeform: 'why would i carry money, i just put it in glove box in the tank'
mircea_popescu: flying tank ?
asciilifeform: flies on the antonov, naturally.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the us is pretty ridiculous. upscale dinner for two can readily run you a grand or two, yet none of the walkers have that much on them.
asciilifeform: eating what, baby panda ?
mircea_popescu: what happens if you run into http://trilema.com/2014/the-romanian-language-for-other-people/ "hey babe wait right here i gotta spend an hour queuing at the bank" ?
asciilifeform: or does the figure include plane ticket to a place with actual food
mircea_popescu: most starred restaurants are a few hundy to maybe a grand a plate.
mircea_popescu: i get it, you don't powerlunch there every day. but if you run into a gal that takes your breath away... wouldn't it be the proper time ?
asciilifeform: few hundy i saw. grand -- not yet, these are probably the ones where you gotta know somebody, knock on the unmarked door five times etc
mircea_popescu: im not even sure how they run it stateside anymoar, for lack of much caring.
asciilifeform: hey i dun have any ideological problem with 'kilobuck restaurant', i spend similar sum on e.g. hdds regularly
asciilifeform: i just have nfi what drug would have to take to want to pay kilobux for americana
mircea_popescu: that's not the problem ; the problem (esp in the "western" world ) is that it'll still be sysco.
asciilifeform: right!
mircea_popescu: hence my lack of caring.
asciilifeform: kilobuxxor per biped buys a weekend trip to ro, ftr, and several doses of RealPhood
asciilifeform: ( granted not on the 1stclass deck with comfy sofa bed. but -- buys. )
mircea_popescu: someone should actually make a strippers-and-roman-banquet airline.
asciilifeform: i'll subscribe.
mircea_popescu: .7 attendants per passenger, "no means yes, of course" as company policy, and they feed you grapes manually.
asciilifeform: lol
mircea_popescu: sell the tickets for 10k or w/e, it'll be more than the strippers make anyway.
asciilifeform: i think they already have a 10k. but without stripper.
mircea_popescu: bout 10% of the 3bn male population would save to go just to be able to say "Went"
asciilifeform: lol, like mecca
mircea_popescu: quite.
asciilifeform: did 'concord' have strippers ?
mircea_popescu: talk about "efficient market hypothesis". this is A LOT more in demand than pink ipad covers, for instance. "oh but mp, pink ipad covers aren't illegal!" o ya ? ALSO more in demand than cocaine.
mircea_popescu: nobody does a line for any other reason than to THINK they're there. so make it a reality, more margin that way.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform concord passage never cost 10k either.
asciilifeform: how in-demand ~is~ cocaine anyway
mircea_popescu: bout a trillion a year's worth or so.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: iirc last set of tickets was 20k ea. or sumthinglikethat
mircea_popescu: well, "last set". i'm not talking collector cunt here.
mircea_popescu: "nrfb" is not a positive for women.
asciilifeform: nrfb?

Pero Heidemarie no es famosa por poseer este impresionante currículo. Lo es por haber perdido una bolsa de herramientas en la misión STS-126 y por haberse desmayado dos veces en la rueda de prensa que dio la tripulación del STS-115 (su primera misión) nada más aterrizar.'
mircea_popescu: at first i thought made up name
asciilifeform: i also thought!
asciilifeform: gotta wonder, did she marry an equally sad ru engineer or wat
asciilifeform: whence the hyphenated monstrosity
mircea_popescu: i don't expect the hyphenating kind would put the husband first.
