phf but unlike ascii i don't have any aversion to shit jobs as long as they pay max and take up min time [00:59]
phf i think "full stack" "web" etc. jobs are primarily shit not because you have to hack javascript or manage imbeciles, but because they have notoriously shit pay-time ratios. 9-5-5 for 140k and 1 week vacation? better fucking shoot me [01:03]

mircea_popescu even without shoehorning "hitler" in here, the only sane way reproduction works is that i have life and death power over any offspring until they go on their own. [10:42]

asciilifeform for offspring you need sane world + economic surplus (at least at the not-being-in-labour-camp level) [10:52]
mircea_popescu demographically it's rather lulzy, tho. take europe : it went through three to twelve generations of this negative selection, 0 reproduction from higher value individuals, depending how you count the generations. and, woe of woes : BEFORE, the better tatars came raiding, and raped. so it fixed things, for a century or two. [10:52]
asciilifeform or, alternatively, being stray dog who doesnt giveafuq [10:52]

mircea_popescu well, it cares, because that 500mn europe has a 1.x children per woman, and 90% of them are made with idiots, and the 5mn are... also idiots. once you start looking at the actual demographic breakdown, it couldn't really take 50k of the derps. [10:56]

asciilifeform and so if it turns out that 100m moved from a to b, and b stole, can just as easily return to a by hitlerian decree ? [21:03]
mircea_popescu i'm not engaging that particular insanity any further. [21:03]
asciilifeform 'you are wrong and your picture of universe is retarded but i won't say why' ? [21:04]
asciilifeform mega-argument. [21:04]
mircea_popescu "you are lacan. your picture of the universe is complete and unrelated to any extant universe. have fun with it." [21:05]
mircea_popescu and note that this is no argument ; this is a judgement. [21:05]
asciilifeform so the reversibility of swift and it having master control panel is not a fact of the universe we live in ? [21:05]
mircea_popescu arguments are neither possible nor interesting. [21:05]
* asciilifeform would liek to visit mircea_popescu's world but it doesn't sell tickets afaik. [21:07]
mircea_popescu well, like is like, can is can. [21:08]
asciilifeform ..? [21:08]
mircea_popescu the path to mp world starts by now fucking having an opinion about how swift works when you've sent a grand total of... 0 ? 10 ? what is it ? [21:08]
mircea_popescu and no, "ach" bs is not swift. [21:09]
asciilifeform i will readily admit that i have not one iota of a clue re: how it works, other than it being not-bitcoin. [21:09]
asciilifeform and thereby subject to retconning if 'international komyooonity' wills it [21:09]
mircea_popescu so you're engaging in intricate description of an item you've never seen. you need explanation of why this is psychotic ? [21:09]
asciilifeform not intricate, but particular hypothesis [21:10]
mircea_popescu hypothesis ? [21:10]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7817 @ 0.00052764 = 4.1246 BTC [+] [21:10]
asciilifeform i.e. that if zimbabwe gets a swift of x, and usg decides that this ought not have happened, it can be reversed. [21:10]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu will tell me that this is not so ? [21:11]
mircea_popescu i'm sorry, the name for what you put out is not "hypothesis", it's justification. [21:11]
asciilifeform well is it true ? [21:11]
mircea_popescu there is no possibility of truth in your system. [21:11]
mircea_popescu it can not be true or false. as long as it's what you need to believe, it'll be there. [21:11]
asciilifeform is it because i cannot access the priors ? [21:11]
mircea_popescu because you aren't in control of the cognitive process that involves it. [21:11]
asciilifeform actually i am ready to believe that it is - or is not - true, if it could be anchored to actual priors that i have. [21:12]
mircea_popescu mno. you are ready to either accept it as a valid justification, or else accept it as a justification that needs futher justification. [21:12]
asciilifeform of what ? [21:12]
mircea_popescu of nothing. [21:13]
mircea_popescu justification, it's a psych term of art. [21:13]
asciilifeform but justification is ~of~ something, no ? [21:13]
mircea_popescu not exactly. [21:13]
mircea_popescu justification is the verbiage produced in response to inquiry. [21:13]
asciilifeform e.g., of krishna existing, or whatnot [21:13]
mircea_popescu "why did you steal ?" "i had to i didnt really steal it wasn't me"| [21:14]
asciilifeform so then it is of being caught with the goods, no ? [21:14]
mircea_popescu "but you did take the thing and put it up your ass" "yes but no it wasn't a thing not my ass not me" [21:14]
asciilifeform the thief's justification is ~of~ something [21:14]
mircea_popescu mno. [21:14]
mircea_popescu it's the response to the question ; it only exists with the question, dies with the last echo of the question. it has no factual basis. [21:15]
asciilifeform and if i ask a fella what he had for dinner, his reponse also dies with the question, no ? [21:16]
mircea_popescu mno. the policeman looks at the item, and asks question. the psychotic thief looks AT THE POLICEMAN and "answers" question. [21:16]
mircea_popescu there's no meeting there, one's lost in his own mind. [21:16]
asciilifeform but i think i know what mircea_popescu was trying to explain to me, that my notion of how swift works is static in disconnected antenna plug ? [21:17]
mircea_popescu your "notion of how swift works" has absolutely nothing to do with swift, working or notions, and everything to do with you justifying your own theft which happened to touch of swift so now yhou have a "hypothesis" about that. [21:17]
mircea_popescu had it touched elephants, you'd have a justification about elephant anatomy, just as well. [21:18]
asciilifeform which theft ? [21:19]
mircea_popescu that is not a question i can actually answer, i don't know you well enough [21:19]
asciilifeform i mean, pretty much my whole existence is a theft [21:19]
mircea_popescu besides this should be 1/4btc per hour and i should have a sofa./ [21:19]
asciilifeform l0l [21:19]
asciilifeform cheap! [21:19]
mircea_popescu all my life i've been shockingly cheap. [21:19]
asciilifeform i would buy, at this rate ! [21:20]
mircea_popescu if i ever move to portland and open a shrink practice ima send you a flyer. [21:20]
asciilifeform please be sure to install a suitable sofa ! [21:20]
mircea_popescu but the wonder is that you manage to maintain this weird somehow encapsulated while writing code. one would find the notion improbable, on the face, but then again i've read said code. [21:22]
mircea_popescu hopefully the barrier lasts. [21:22]
asciilifeform why is this a wonder [21:22]
asciilifeform i dun get it [21:22]
mircea_popescu clinical experience. [21:22]
mircea_popescu i get it, "for me it's always been this way". [21:22]
asciilifeform what would the code look like if this were not so ? [21:23]
mircea_popescu uhh [21:23]
asciilifeform i get what mircea_popescu is saying, 'the man is a lunatic but somehow capable of engineering sanely' [21:23]
mircea_popescu this is actually a great question. [21:23]
mircea_popescu nah, lunacy is not this. [21:23]
asciilifeform but i would like to see why mircea_popescu considers the code - sane, and my picture of the rest - not. [21:24]
asciilifeform i could, for instance, be readily persuaded that ~all~ of my works are of insanity. [21:24]
mircea_popescu but anyway - i suppose the first symtpom of the barrier giving way is when you start including specific amulet comments [21:24]
asciilifeform wtf is an amulet comment [21:25]
mircea_popescu what's your definition of an amulet ? [21:25]
asciilifeform a device of sympathetic magic ? [21:25]
mircea_popescu basically. spurious item of presumed physical effectiveness predicated on the basis of metaphysical considerations. [21:26]
asciilifeform aha [21:26]
asciilifeform so a comment containing a prayer to vishnu, say ? [21:26]
mircea_popescu yo9u know, like #this code copyright [21:26]
mircea_popescu for instance. [21:26]
asciilifeform this is amulet, but mircea_popescu's anarchist license, is not ? [21:27]
asciilifeform as i see it, both are essentially decorative [21:27]
mircea_popescu yes, they are. for as long as they're decorative, it's one thing. [21:27]
* DreadKnight has quit (Quit: #AncientBeast - Master Your Beasts ( )) [21:27]
asciilifeform having more or less same status as, e.g., #8=======> [21:27]
mircea_popescu once they become necessary and "necessarily effectual", it gets iffy [21:27]
mircea_popescu in any case - lunacy is not here contemplated. lunacy is actually in practice a very high bar of achievement. you're just weird, which is boringly common, especially in accomplished folks. [21:28]
asciilifeform i can only aspire to the high bar. [21:29]
mircea_popescu (technically speaking, the mp license is actually an anti-amulet, in the sense that it makes life impossible for a certain sort of lunatic. inasmuch as its effectiveness is not predicated on metaphysical but on quite physical considerations, it's just a virus.) [21:30]
asciilifeform but is this property not itself amuletronic ? [21:30]
asciilifeform it cannot all by itself 'make life impossible' for anyone. [21:30]
mircea_popescu no, but we do know how idiots think. [21:30]
asciilifeform and the old amulet was also calibrated for a certain kind of idiot [21:31]
asciilifeform whose thought processes were reasonably well known [21:31]
mircea_popescu mind, selling amulets is a trade like any other trade. wearing them is what was being discussed. [21:31]
asciilifeform anyway i don't do amulets, much as mircea_popescu is convinced of this. i ~might~ entertain laughably inaccurate hypothesis about whatevers, when i have no access (unlike to the inside of a computer) to the priors. [21:32]
mircea_popescu that's not the proper approach there. consider that you'd "entertain laughably innacurate hypothesis" about a) things that really make no difference to you ; b) with which you have absolutely no experience and c) that have exactly nothing in common with a hypothesis and everything in common with an article of faith. [21:34]
asciilifeform who is to say what makes a difference to me. [21:34]
mircea_popescu you could trivially test this swift hypothesis of yours you know - wire a grand to the next nigerian to visit your inbox then write to your bank to reverse it. [21:34]
asciilifeform ~i~ don't get to reverse it ! [21:34]
asciilifeform never said this. [21:34]
mircea_popescu oh i see. [21:34]
asciilifeform the system's owner gets to. [21:34]
asciilifeform which is neither me nor the other schmuck. [21:35]
mircea_popescu is he the elite ? [21:35]
asciilifeform whoever he answers to, is sorta definitionally elite, no? [21:35]
mircea_popescu ex post facto. [21:35]
mircea_popescu it's a trope of fiction, all this. [21:36]
mircea_popescu which whatever, everyone needs a hobby. [21:36]
asciilifeform care to possibly give a brief picture of the reality ? [21:37]
asciilifeform or what, 'your puny brain cannot digest it ' ? [21:37]
mircea_popescu the reality of what ? [21:37]
asciilifeform of swift. [21:37]
mircea_popescu why not read the documentation ? [21:38]
mircea_popescu it's remarkably open and well documented for a fiat banking thing. [21:38]
asciilifeform why not read to learn which hdd firmwares are buggered ? [21:38]
mircea_popescu it's a protocol you know. [21:38]
asciilifeform or what, swift operators swore to vishnu to tell the truth and only the complete truth ? [21:38]
asciilifeform but yes, i will actually go and read. [21:39]
mircea_popescu so there's a meta-documentation that's secret and a faux documentation that's published ? [21:39]
* asciilifeform bbl. [21:39]
mircea_popescu same could be said about fucking css. [21:39]
mircea_popescu (actually, amusingly enough, swift docs date from just about the era ada was fashionable. there was such a time - just like that time in the 90s when everyone was eager to implement linux-y things and you didn't really have to sell it at all, whole cities just switched for no reason) [21:40]
