mircea_popescu in any case i would point out that "remaining in power" is not only the terminology of "the enemy" (which, here, means "of the idiots"), but actually meaningless. remain in power ? do we toil towards a bitcoind that can be used to what, "Remain in power" ? do i object to the amorphousness of words when i point out what definitions really are and why definitions must exist, do i object to the amorphousness of pseud-thou [15:33]

trinque seems a matter of whether something beats the mind into accepting that the state of reality is entirely outside the control of a person, aside from a margin of error [15:58]
trinque perhaps the degenerate kids scream and get whatever they want, then come of age, and are incapable of wanting anything sensible [15:58]
trinque so it seems poverty does this; on that route, life itself chaps the back of the horse [15:59]

mircea_popescu talleyrand took a lot of money from the various german princes, yes. bribes ? maybe. to do what with them ? not like he had to buy any woman in paris anyway. [16:06]
mircea_popescu but he definbitely excised a lot of revenge over the people that pointedly reminded him of his opwn parents. [16:06]
mircea_popescu i very much doubt the man was motivated by greed, or at all comprehensible in the terms of the bourgeoisie. [16:07]
phf mircea_popescu: so what changed in the 19th century is that the beatings stopped? [16:08]
mircea_popescu it was changing by 1700, in france. [16:08]
mircea_popescu not that the beatings stopped, but that luis hated his father, and decided he'll rule with a bureaucracy rather than have more of that shit around. [16:08]
mircea_popescu so the aristocrats were taken to versailles and circumcised. [16:08]
phf hmm [16:09]
mircea_popescu the guillotine... minor point, and a necessity after thatanyway. [16:09]
mircea_popescu it was worth a shot, unequivocally. [16:09]
mircea_popescu but the problem comes back again and again to what i told pete d that day we were discussing "systems" : you can not afford to insult the powerful. [16:09]
mircea_popescu but the notion that the mob in the street invented anything or in any way created something... gimme a break. romanians for a while thought ceausescu was incredibly inventive in his stupidity. these being the folk too uncultured to know carol 2. in fact, the bootmaker was merely immitating, as best he could. [16:12]
mircea_popescu following, as it were, with the knife the lines drawn aforehand. [16:12]
mircea_popescu so yes, the french revolution is a "historical necessity". because a king at some point said so. [16:12]
phf oh i see [16:13]
mircea_popescu he didn't know at the time what he was saying. obviously. and perhaps didn't even care to find if what he said was or was not said before. [16:15]
mircea_popescu but the people whio did care thought - and i think today - it was worth a shot. [16:15]
mircea_popescu if we like or don't like the results - at least we know. [16:15]
mircea_popescu general indication seems to be that he didn't care for the result either. that "apres moi le deluge" is very similar to socrates' "i have nothing to offer nor do i wish to offer anything in fine." [16:16]
mircea_popescu tried, failed, bury me over there. [16:17]
mircea_popescu which incidentally terribly weakens the middle class case against hitler. "oh, he lost the war". sure. guess what, the war that was won hasn't been invented yet. [16:18]

mircea_popescu "oh hitler was mean, because the british empire was ending anyway, and he should have jsut waited it out ; whereas oh lincoln was great, because southern slavery was ending anyway but he had the martial presence to not wait it out". [16:20]
mircea_popescu herp derp and really tell me more what the middle class thinks, it's so impossible for me to predict it. [16:20]
phf so the point is that aristocracy was already lost starting with 1743 reforms. presumably was brought to russia by peter's newly established bureaucrats [16:22]
mircea_popescu peter is before stalin the leader of the soviets. [16:23]
phf first sjw, employed a black feller [16:23]
mircea_popescu you know, the entyire skin color thing was never a major point in yurp. [16:24]
phf oh, i know, i didn't realize there was even such a thing until i came to the states [16:24]
mircea_popescu (there's a black girl in the french film i mentioned above - nobody cared. "wow seriously ?!" yes seriously, the french had chocolat before the usians had chocolate. [16:24]
phf although there's a 1940s (?) soviet movie, where an american girl flees to soviet union, because she had a black baby, pursued by a capitalist who's trying to expose her. of course the predictable ending is everyone joins in a song "soviet russia, where all are accepted" [16:25]

pete_dushenski and yes, as expected, 'metro news edmonton' has failed to respond to my advertisement inquiry [21:55]
pete_dushenski because they're just not into that non-gay singles thing were straight men seek straigh womenz to take care of [21:56]
pete_dushenski because it's only twinks that wanna be taken care of now in this ever so progressive corner of the americas [21:56]
pete_dushenski having a masters in femtonism means that you're automagically skilled and whatnot, so being 'taken care of' is the ultimate insult to your intelligence and self-worth [21:57]
pete_dushenski i wanna say 'whatever. enjoy being 35 and barren. y'all get what y'all deserve.' but perhaps that's unfair [21:58]
pete_dushenski seeing through the muck and the mire is hard. but not impossible ! [21:59]

mircea_popescu i heard this said emptily by a large number of derps, so it must be so. [22:16]
pete_dushenski clear as the giant forehead on your face [22:16]

mircea_popescu well don't blame stage 2 for the movements of stagr 1 [22:17]
mircea_popescu especially seeing how stage 1 is precisely there to prevent stage 2. [22:17]

mircea_popescu lol trinque [22:26]
trinque manhattan project my second ass [22:26]
mircea_popescu bitcoin OBVIOUSLY has flaws, unlike ethereum. [22:26]
pete_dushenski lel [22:26]
trinque thank god that vaguely russian kid is here to nuke the status quo, or whatever it is [22:26]
mircea_popescu because the things that are get the flaw talk, and the things that aren't.... you wouldnt wanna fud some kids' imaginarium nao wouldja./ [22:26]
trinque burn it to the ground and make 'em watch [22:27]
trinque imagine that [22:27]
trinque :D [22:27]
* asciilifeform does not know precisely where buterin grew up, but does know that pretty much every kid from that generation dreamed of running a successful scam or racket [22:27]
pete_dushenski -great success- [22:27]
asciilifeform hey mr b is loaded [22:28]
pete_dushenski orly ? [22:28]
asciilifeform compared to yours truly [22:28]
asciilifeform for one thing, i'm not aware of him working for a living [22:28]
pete_dushenski hard to demonstrate [22:28]
asciilifeform pretty easy. which one drags ass to an office every day [22:28]
pete_dushenski i dun see vb buying stacks of pogos [22:28]
asciilifeform and which one doesn't [22:28]
asciilifeform QED. [22:28]
asciilifeform i bet his cock ring is worth more than a container of pogo. [22:29]
pete_dushenski see, now you're just letting your imagination run away from you [22:29]
pete_dushenski butering has cockrings like he has nipplerings [22:30]
asciilifeform to me, a fella who doesn't work and will never have to, is ipso facto rich [22:30]
trinque and he'll do what with it [22:30]
pete_dushenski 'never have to' is a long ass time [22:30]
pete_dushenski kid's, what, 21 ? [22:30]
trinque yeah, he's got plenty of time for more bad decisions [22:30]
asciilifeform at least he has the option of not making them [22:31]
pete_dushenski alas, an evening of spicy food beckons. i'm outtie. laters ! [22:31]
* pete_dushenski has quit () [22:31]
asciilifeform i'm not even convinced that mr b knows he's a shill [22:31]
asciilifeform prolly just thinks 'i crapped this out and the grownups are so dumb! they love it' [22:31]
asciilifeform the kind of pauper2prince described in chuck palahniuk's 'survivor' [22:32]
trinque either way, if you anticipate ethereum going the way of other altcoins (or worse, look at the complexity of the thing), he'll have to live with that on his name forever. [22:32]
asciilifeform he'll be living with the golden toilet and the palaces forever. [22:33]
trinque if he does, that's somebody else's failing, for sure [22:33]
asciilifeform (or, more accurately, until the war) [22:33]
trinque yeah [22:33]
asciilifeform but i don't expect to see the other end of the war in person, either. [22:33]
cazalla i am hoping ethereum over takes litecoin in fake market cap just as its first halving occurs for extra lulz and butthurts [22:35]
mircea_popescu nah [22:35]
mircea_popescu it's been done before. [22:35]
mircea_popescu it'll take doge over in market cap [22:35]
mircea_popescu or whatever the scamcoin was before that. [22:35]
* mircea_popescu wonders if asciilifeform has pre-made file with the woe me stuff, or generates them on the fly. [22:36]
cazalla it already has over taken doge, only paycoin and that icelandic? coin has done so in the past [22:36]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: generates [22:37]
trinque ^ has a woe-coprocessor [22:37]
asciilifeform nah just a nonmaskable woe interrupt [22:38]
trinque haha [22:38]
asciilifeform triggered by mention of folks who sleep ad libitum [22:38]
trinque speaking of woe, ben_vulpes, imma probably go drink at bonfire [22:39]
trinque stop by if ya want [22:39]
