mircea_popescu: and to briefly revisit discussion : people who aim to tell a story ~qua story~ rather than qua reality ARE DANGEROUS. very, very fucking dangerous, and ~they know this, too~ (or otherwise, one's hard pressed to explain why they come up with inane "really, the other guy is dangerous, promise" bullshit aka http://trilema.com/2014/the-definitive-tract-on-sociopathy/ -- especially seeing how that's their amply documented and well
mircea_popescu: consider also http://trilema.com/2011/leapsa-universala/#comment-47349 discussion, "Trilema este un blog onest in primul rand. Atat de onest incat instraineaza foarte multi din cei care il folosesc. Daca ar fi sa desenam un grafic cu utilizatorii acestui blog am vedea ca ei cresc pana la un moment dat si dupaia zice Popescu ceva (pai cum dreq) si fuge gloata oripilata in toate directiile."
mircea_popescu: Jan 30 18:30:38 <mircea_popescu> and since i mentioned vice-versa again, some #haremleaks : hanbot asked me if i think the only reason anstey made paul a widower was so he didn't have to confront his son fucking his wife during that week.
mircea_popescu: Jan 30 18:31:07 <mircea_popescu> leaving aside how period couples easily did a week of abstinence, i retorted this was not so, but rather to be true to life : most of the kids in dick's position had no mother
mircea_popescu: Jan 30 18:36:11 <mircea_popescu> because of peripueral fever, which at the time was a 10-20% winnings dice every woman rolled every time she had a kid, it then followed that most kids at one of the boarding schools had no mothers.
mircea_popescu: Jan 30 18:37:15 <mircea_popescu> and, this is the bomb : they were alone, so there could be an empire. because most females mated with powerful males died before reaching the 2nd half of maturity (and especially old age), the female view was ~not represented in society~. dick was alone, not merely personally, but politically, there was no one there to efficiently argue his position.
mircea_popescu: Jan 30 18:37:28 <mircea_popescu> once peripueral fever went away, the british empire ended.
mircea_popescu: Jan 30 18:40:29 <mircea_popescu> in this view (which, while not the only interpretation that can be painted on the facts nevertheless very much is an interpretation that very well can be painted on the facts), the required reagent for something to happen is for somehow, accidentally or intentionally, female representation to go away.
mircea_popescu: Jan 30 18:40:54 <mircea_popescu> peripueral fever made the british empire possible more than anything else, and the reason there isn't one today are simply put all the happy tourists taking pictures of costa rican wild life.
mircea_popescu: Jan 30 18:41:19 <mircea_popescu> amateurs, as it turns out, are a terrible plague.
mircea_popescu: Jan 30 18:44:15 <mircea_popescu> o look, now it ~didn't disc
mircea_popescu: Jan 30 18:44:15 <mircea_popescu> o look, now it ~didn't disconnect me at all anymore~. just sat there, 10 minutes+, nothing doing. because totally, "the protocol permits", or how did it go ?
mircea_popescu: talking to myself for a good 15 minutes, because something with pingpongs or what was it!
mircea_popescu: anyway, when trump won the first derping of the female state went along the lines of "adults", mind ye, ~adults~ "taking care of him" or somesuch nonsense. this directly maps, period ie 1880s dinner conversation had the dead women been instead present went "why did you machinegun those nice zulus ?" "what the fuck did you want me to do, teach them english, invite them over for tea, meet the missus ?" "<grin>"
mod6: Yeah, I kinda went through 1-4 quickly in the past. But now I wanna do the homework too.
asciilifeform: imho none of'em oughta take herculean effort to eat
asciilifeform: ch10 i expect typical reader will want cup of coffee; 14 - 2 cups.
mod6: Naw, but I wanna draw out the full-adder and things such as that. I want a very, very strong foundation so when I get into the later chapters, it's all in the front of my mind so I'm not getting lost.
mod6: That would be awesome, I'd love to at least get as many lords to sign off as possible. I know it's a big ask for all though. There's a lot there.
mod6: Yeah, the regrind is straight forward, save the part where I axed out the UTF-8 char out of the genesis.
asciilifeform: i'ma run the diff and errything that lines up with what i signed prev, will sign again
mod6: No rush, I appreciate it. I've got some more work ahead of me (to be outlined in tomorrow's STATE OF BITCOIN ADDRESS) before I pick a cut-over date for the website, but having Lordshipt blessing is a big step in the right direction.
mod6: I'm currently building out a Cuntoo (have had a minor issue with my kernel not booting correctly, but will work on that soon), and will use that + ave1's musl to build the keccak v tooling, and then TRB. Which will also go into the upcoming changes to the HOWTO Guide.
asciilifeform: mod6: the 1 obv change with cuntoo is that it dun need 'rotor' build process at all
a111: Logged on 2015-07-30 04:08 asciilifeform: but ~i personally~ will from now on support ~only~ rotor. and soon after, only rotolinux (buildroot for arbitrary arch that includes therealbitcoin and its deps, and toolchain to reconstruct self and the latter.)
asciilifeform: where i got 'rotor' to build a bootable linux, with bare bones envir
asciilifeform: but i never got as far as to get gentoo portage etc. working on it
a111: Logged on 2019-01-30 20:07 asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-01-30#1890962 << hey how does one say 'взять на слабо' in ro ? ( trad. method of 1 boy getting another to do something foolish, 'hey betcha yer too weak to X!' )
mircea_popescu: "If you need to ask, you probably shouldn't go," he winced. "It is a source of pride among Uruguayans that their country lacks any world-class attractions. No Iguaçu Falls. No Patagonia. No Andes. But there is something wonderfully old-fashioned about Uruguay, and so beautifully uncomplicated."
mircea_popescu: holy shit sherlock. i was there for a few days (colonia), it pissed me off to high heavens. yeah there's strictly nothing to do.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in teh fetlulz files, Bikini-Kelly 25F Fetishist "You look like a guy I'd see on the 10 o'clock news who got caught looking at little kids at the playground. You're gross lol. Sorry not sorry."
mircea_popescu: "the news", amirite. we talk about how "reducing inequality" and other socialist tropes mask the utter destruction of personal wealth and quality of living in the past century, in ready contrasts of "compare your granpa's farm with your cubical, dork". yet... how about the intellectual contrast ?
mircea_popescu: somehow 15yo girly a century ago didn't engage in this exercise in ludicrous idiocy whereby she'd importantly sprout off "you look just like the guy the old women told me to stay away from" right before running off [to be with herself in a corner somewhere].
mircea_popescu: principally because the 17yo'd have laughed her off the planet, it's true. but still.
mircea_popescu: this here is TWENTY FIVE. old enough to be dead already. and yet...

mircea_popescu: the "forum investment" crowd build its SECOND layer of indirection. now there's a meta-meta-checker, because "Some HYIP programs may leave only good status seals on their sites and remove or forge bad once. With our site you may check all HYIP monitors of any HYIP. Also some HYIP monitors may accept 'special monitor' plans, may promote SCAM. That is why we have monitor ranking."
shinohai: kk, just hadn't seen it show up in my daily nodes check before. (Nice to see 10 nodes online however)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'remove or forge bad once' << lol, apparently even used the mandatory spamglish ( where idea is that reader with 3 neurons to rub together stops reading in <5sec, and doesn't waste the scammer's time)
mircea_popescu: it's kind-of an interesting object from an anthropologists' pov. sorta like the klein bottle for the analytic geometer i guess.
mircea_popescu: i mean, i can't fucking predict, what next, FOURTH indirection layer ? doing what exactly, it destroys meaning, how can you distinguish between a meta-monitor and a meta-meta-monitor ?
mircea_popescu: could one identify a lifted chip by comparing board photos ?
asciilifeform: incidentally, re molestations -- asciilifeform's ad hoc xray box suxx balls, 20kV doesn't penetrate anyffin, even the oil around the tube. i'm considering getting a proper ( with adjustable voltage, and closable banksafe-style shield box ) industrial board xrayer.
asciilifeform: originally intended just for the bolix, but nao thinking it'd make for a decent added molestation search for certain items.
