This is me being completely spaced out

If those ten thousand words didn't do it for you, how about these ten thousand words :

Part one of our show :

Mircea Popescu ‏@Mircea_Popescu · May 26 Ahaha funniest shit I saw all week. Hey noobster, #Bitcoin IS ALL ABOUT PRIVILEGE. @aantonop @30somethingST Examine your privilege

AndreasMAntonopoulos ‏@aantonop · May 26 @Mircea_Popescu Today, yes, bitcoin is an expression of extreme privilege, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Mircea Popescu ‏@Mircea_Popescu · May 26 @aantonop But if it doesn't stay that way, I will find you and I will kill you with my bare hands, how about that.

And yes, it stands quite like that. Bitcoin is the expression of privilege, and the gambit it offers to the entire world is a simple choice : either continue with what you are doing and be the niggers of tomorrow, kept nude in pens for meat, milk and our twerking enjoyment, or else change, and I do mean change who you are and what you are doing, substantially, dramatically, right now.

There is not a question of whether Bitcoin will or Bitcoin will not "work with governments". Bitcoin does not work with anything or anyone. The question is whether every single person involved in these alleged "governments" is going to obey or else enjoy the sad fate of poor Georg, ritter von Flondor. Because, again, remember that we know where you live, and we don't care that you and the little group of fairies that's to you "the entire world" prefer being collectively known as "Congress" or "Government" or anything else. You might as well think you're Napoleon's Grande Armee for all the difference it makes. You're not in the WoT, you might as well not exist, and delusions of collective security won't help you.

Which of course leads way to the 2nd part of our show, where people I don't know try and vouch for people I despise. How very sensible neh ?

Scott James ‏@imscottjames · May 27 @Mircea_Popescu @aantonop Pretty sure you're both on the same team here.

Mircea Popescu ‏@Mircea_Popescu · May 27 @imscottjames Based on what ?

Scott James @imscottjames @Mircea_Popescu Based on your comments and everything I've ever seen from Andreas. He's not your enemy.

Mircea Popescu ‏@Mircea_Popescu · May 27 @imscottjames Other than a bunch of derping on non-topics like "privilege", inequality and 4th wave feminism plus NEOBEE shillingi ?

Mircea Popescu ‏@Mircea_Popescu · May 27 @imscottjames It's not a matter of being "my enemy". It's a matter of being a pompous nobody, the sort of thing I take poorly to.

Which leads directly to part three of our show, where the little bitch in question complains to the redditards that whoa, meanie MP pulled his hair and twisted his nipples!!!

Sensei Billy Hart ‏@CptRodgers · 24m @Mircea_Popescu @aantonop I wasn't born to rich parents either you fairy. Stop complaining about other people having it better than you.ii

AKW ‏@AKWAnalytics · 6h @Mircea_Popescu "pompous nobody". Take a good, long look in the mirror, buddy. #patheticiii

Adam Worden ‏@AdamWorden · 6h @Mircea_Popescu You're a pathetic scumbag. Come at me, bro. Try that on me. I'll even give you my address.iv

In closing I wish you a traditional Wait...wut?!

  1. How quickly we forget, how easy we make it for these schmucks to steal from us. All that's needed is some vapid talk about "women's rights" and he can rape whoever he wants, right ? After all, he's done so much "for the cause", verbally. All that's needed is some gargle about "inequality" and then he can run with thousands of Bitcoin just fine, right ?

    Where's the inequality Antonderp generated by stealing a few Bitcents from a bunch of redditards that thought they knew better than me ? When are we getting about to resolving that inequality, for instance by taking 10k BTC from Antonderp and distributing it to the ten thousand or so bagholders ?

    Stop protecting the scammers, fuckwits. []

  2. I'll prolly need a team to translate this one for me. []
  3. Right. Because if herpy-derpy doesn't know who's the most powerful guy in BTC that means nothing can happen. []
  4. Who the fuck are you again and why should I care ? []

  1. Re footnote two: it'd seem he's rejecting AA's notion that "privileged bitcoiners" must have rich parents, not know what it's like to be hungry or cold, etc.

    It seems that when you find something that goes against your ideological viewpoints, you do some insane mental gymnastics with your ignorant technological abilities and post messages of threats and hatred to Twitter.

    You shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a computer. Why don't you stay off the crack pipe you crazy idiot.

    It's not a matter of me "being allowed". There's nobody to allow or disallow me from anything. I'm the one doing the allowing and disallowing, of anything including physical existence, for all derps such as yourself. Get used to the idea, for it ain't going away.

    Salut Mircea,
    Am vazut toata discutia de pe reddit dar nu mi-am dat seama ca MP=Mircea Popescu...
    Sincer ce ai cu Antonios? Care a fost de fapt motivul disputei?
    Eu l-am cunoscut pe Antonios si e baiat de treab... sincer...

  6. You
    You're Not Allowed!

    "There’s nobody to allow or disallow me from anything"

    Looks like you got that wrong now that Twitter deleted your account. LMAO!

    @Mircea Popescu It totally does something.. disallows you from ever using your name again on twitter. Thank you, Twitter, for silencing the scallywag.

    So basically I'm banned by the association of street prophets in Queens from ever giving them free stuff again ? Woe unto me.

    I still own the fucking streets they starve upon, and the buildings they're getting kicked from if they dare try to go in, and the garbage bins they rummage through, fuckwit.

    O sa incerc sa iti scriu din nou in sperantza ca de data asta no o sa mai raspunzi monosilabic...

    Am citit acu' cateva luni articolul scris de tine si reactiile de pe reddit cu privire la presiunile facute de . Toata povestea aia a ajutat comunicatea si berbecii astia care sunt cu bitcoin si cu alte chestii descentralizate au capatat mai mult curaj. Cu toate acestea, ceea ce ai scris pe twitter nu consider ca e prea mult. In Romana suna OK. Din pacate prin alte parti ale lumii e esential sa fi 'politically correct' pana la infinit si dincolo de infinit daca se poate mai ales pe twitter si pe alte retele de socializare care sunt indexate de Google.

    Antonios nu e chiar prostan. A scris si facut multe tutoriale care ajuta mai ales ca documentatia pt acest sistem este greu de gasit sau imprastiata pe 1000 de site-uri. Vorbeam cu el si isi termina acuma cartea -- mai are un capitol so o termina -- si daca este scrisa bine si o sa ajute developeri si poate chiar si pe tine ce o sa mai zici? Poate o sa te ajute si pe tine daca o sa mai faci un site cu zaruri si chestii d-astea... Acum poti sa te bati cu pumnii in piept si sa zici ca tu stii totul despre bitcoin-ul asta dar ma indoiesc ca stii totul despre multi-sig , desre scripting si desper weak brain wallet si asa mai departe...

    PS: Eu in locul tau as face tot posibilul sa imi recuperez twitter ul. E totusi un mod de comunicare uneori mai eficient decet telefonul...

    Mei da' mie mi se rupe fix in pula cam ce considera twitter ca ar fi bine sau ca ar fi rau. Situatia in teren e cam asa : ei au o platforma de cacat care pierde bani cu barja. Aia poate avea oricine, oricind, si mai ieftin. Io pe de cealalta parte is ala care face continutu'. Aia nu poate avea nimeni veci pururi, n-o sa apara acuma un alt MP ca am plecat io. Deci pe cale de consecinta, voia la ei da' banii la mine, io-mi aleg restaurantu' nu el pe mine, si daca are ceva problema cu faptu' ca io pun fetele sa stea topless la masa ie fix problema lor : fetele mele tot topless or sta la masa daca asa zic io.

    Io n-am nimic impotriva ca o fi rescris ala documentatiile sau ce-o fi facut, ie fix apa de ploaie, un traducator neautorizat incepe de la 75 centi ora de munca. Io am in schimb impotriva faptu' ca o tot facut publicitate la scamuri infecte, in contra a ce ziceam eu in aceeasi perioada, si mai grav ca nu si-o cerut scuze dupa aia. Ca asa e normal, daca se crede prostanu' mai destept decit MP si zice niste chestii public invers decit MP, cind se dovedeste ca tot ce-o vorbit el o fo de fapt exact gresit iese frumos cu o declaratie "Io is prost, MP ie destept, alta data ascultati de el ca el stie ce vorbeste, nu de mine si de alti puleti ignari ca mine, ca noi habar n-avem". Asa era normal. Labareala cu drepturile nustiucui si ce gargara de cacat ii mai agita pe vestici cu nigarii si muierile is fix alaturea de orice discutie, se duc cei interesati si labaresc pe temele alea la cafeneaua studenteasca sau unde se baga ele in seama.

    In tot cazu' pe mine n-are cum sa ma ajute asta, si ceva labareala de "carte" cu atit mai putin. Cit ce priveste comunicarea, lumea comunica cum mine cam cum zic io, nu-mi fac io probleme pe tema aia, ca io-s ala cu "don't call us, we'll call you", nu reciproc.

    Did twitter ban your account permanently? Based on reddit harassment?

    I have no idea.

  14. This block bullying is common practice, either you'll get it back automatically or by asking.

    Still not sure why anyone would care about that useless website for useless people.

    Well my history with Twitter is sorta like this : I started an account back before it was cool because of a group of chicks I was in, you know how it goes a group of friends picks up some obscure web service and then they're all there. That died six months later or so, group lost interest in the toy, I sorta kept at it for no particular reason - mostly cause it's easy I guess.

    Then in 2011 I finally quit it, because they made some "upgrades" to the website making it impossible for me to actually send tweets anymore, at which point I promptly discovered that the supposed desktop applications for it require... Adobe Air. So I just forgot about it.

    But apparently I had a Trilema RSS feed publishing to it, or so I discovered sometime in 2013. So then I checked the website again and lo and behold! I could publish again, somehow. I guess they musta fixed the upgrade or whatever. And so I've been publishing, but in fairness it was mostly to lol at the derpage firehose it is, I never really ended up identifying with it or whatever the hell.

    I'd like to say that I guess I'll be back in another coupla years, if I'm somehow magically reminded, but looking at twitter's cashflow statement that really seems a bridge too far. At any rate, who'd want to be involved with a platform in the first place, and especially one run by Americans is completely beyond me.

    And especially for free. Twitter wants me back, its PR'd better start sending me care packages.

    PS. Found the original announcement. It was 2009ish.

  16. I used Twitter much earlier (I used their SMS update service!), and I have followed all their pathetic tries at being relevant. Kinda like Bitcoin, they were starting things like "do X with Twitter" just for the hell of it.

    Took them years to get actual users, only after they got celebrities (well, their PR) to be in it. I think it started with pornstars.

    The format of Twitter only allows the exchange of pretend-witty remarks devoid of content. The French media even has a name for those exchanges, "tweet clash". It's only natural that it attracts the media-addicted useless people, who only care about the "little sentences", day-to-day politics, etc. Its use for *discussion* is just toxic.

    I also tried to use it "professionally" but never got anything interesting out of it. So I deleted all my accounts.

    Also, I can assure you most followers don't actually read you, I tested it.

    It did start with pornstars, yea.

    Some of my followers read me, I can tell by the reactions. But most definitely don't. In fact I'm pretty sure that any account has a few hundred to a few thousand readers, with the rest making up the difference to a few thousand or a few million simply inactive.

    In fact that Amil Dash character has an article actually documenting the phenomenon.

  18. Anal Dash is an idiot. He's guilty of public housing fraud in NYC Stuyvesant Town. Enough about that though. He and many others have documented the phenomenon of which you speak. You are correct.

    No! Please don't tell me Twitter banned your account? Crud.

    Twitter has gone back to disallowing URLs in DM's, which is unfortunate. I saw something the other day, could not get answers (but then, who can, with Mt. Gox?) and now I see a familiar name. I copied
    this to pastebin, and highlighted accordingly. I tried asking one of the parties concerned, but, surprise, he was not exactly forthcoming.

    Maybe you could give me your email address, if that isn't too presumptuous of me? I'm trying a different method of getting an avatar, seems no more likely to work though.

    Ahaha funny how this works out then. Seen ?

    Enough about that though. He and many others have documented the phenomenon of which you speak. You are correct.

    Indeed. Even idiots have a point on occasion.

    The best way to get in touch with me, and other than that the best way to get answers (from a troop of people that makes me more intelligent) and, as a throw-in bonus, the best way to participate in the building of the future of humanity is the #bitcoin-assets channel. You've been there before, stick with it.

  20. I wish I could read it. Pay wall. (giggle) Sorry. Not. Sort of.

    Your handsome face is all over reddit. Well, not quite, but every post has a thumbnail, with this as a consequence. They are so incendiary there! It will be amusing when they click through on the posted articles and hit your pay wall.

    Good news! Trilema is number one in the serp's on Google search in the USA.

    I saw pics of the conference.

    Young-ish lady in the corset looks like Meredith the married infosec person (3rd wave feminist too) who lives in Belgium. Nice decor, ambience.

    Thank you for your patience with me. You have been very tolerant of my insouciance. I will do as told.

  21. @Ellie Bitcoin-assets has no paywall, jsut flag someone to give you voice.
