mircea_popescu aberrations is a word. absurdities != aberations. [13:29]
mircea_popescu "One of the most ridiculous nonsense passed with pious self-importance by the neophytes and likewise unwarranted people" [13:30]
mircea_popescu this is broken in at least two places. one of the most x nonsense is bad grammar. the X and otherwyse Y z's is bad style [13:30]
mircea_popescu your ennumerations must be balanced, either ennumerate nouns or adjectives. [13:30]
asciilifeform it still beats the shit out of 'google trans' [13:30]
mircea_popescu it does. [13:31]
mircea_popescu gabrielradio trilema text is very fucking tense, so it needs this intensive approach to work. ya know ? [13:31]
gabrielradio true [13:32]
asciilifeform 'I don't care if your language lawyers tell you gcc is right. THIS WILL CAUSE PEOPLE TO GET HACKED.' << this is not hundred percent idiotic. the c programming language is specified in such a way, with sufficiently pervasive 'undefined behaviours' and nonstandardized but inescapable routines, that it is ~physically impossible~ to program in it as-specified [13:32]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform the only problem is that it takes me ~20 minutes to translate one. it maybe takes me 15 minutes to read and fix his, except i'll also get angry. so it's a sort of economical problem. [13:32]
asciilifeform thereby every single program beyond the schoolbook trivium depends on just such behaviour. [13:32]
mircea_popescu ~depends~ being tghe key word. [13:32]
mircea_popescu it's not that you can fix it with better dakka. [13:33]

mircea_popescu what the everliving fuck. closing down "status of women" offices is a fucking must for women's rights. [15:23]

mircea_popescu and whoever took over's paying less for the copywriting and even less for the artwork. [16:35]

phf mircea_popescu: i was being childish, but also under a lot of stress. at that point they didn't quite believe me that i really am only staying on long enough to wrap up the projects i was responsible for. the haircut cut off any attempts to bring me into meetings with new clients. in any case not my proudest moment, but it was my best halloween costume so far. [16:40]
mircea_popescu usually how this works :D [16:41]
mircea_popescu "not my proudest moment in retrospect, but hot damned that time i stripped naked and jumped in the pool was the greatest party ever!" said many a tall beauties. [16:41]
phf ahaha [16:42]
mircea_popescu whadda ya do for a living now, anyway [16:43]
phf helping out a friend on his project ~3 days a week or so in a last authority on technical decisions role. [16:46]
mircea_popescu what, you're retired ? [16:47]
phf that's one way of putting it, except i don't have enough leverage to last me to the end, so technically no [16:48]
mircea_popescu so you're basically a nigger in prison (ie, timed out by the failures of this world!!1) except not actually black. [16:50]
phf that's a much better way of putting it, yes [16:50]
mircea_popescu so why don't you do something ? here's alf bending over the task of routing circuits in the blockchain implemented in ada [16:51]

mircea_popescu what's that ? [16:54]
phf whenever mp notices a problem, there's a active search for a solution [16:55]
phf i'm basically following along the logs, looking for things i can pick up and work on. last one i saw was memory limits in nursery [16:56]
mircea_popescu flattering, but noit that accurate. [16:56]
asciilifeform phf: the back side of this medal is that problems which require something more than poor buggerz working nights and weekends with bare hands - don't get solved. [16:56]
mircea_popescu not that the strategy per se is bad, following the log. [16:56]
mircea_popescu but i am positive that either mod6 or alf could give you huge chunks to do, if you're mostly into that. prolly mod6 more swamped tghan alf atm, even. [16:57]

assbot The Last Psychiatrist: Academics Hide Drug Company Payments ... ( ) [21:26]
mircea_popescu "If Biederman never existed, nothing would be different. You read his resume, you think, wow, he's a big player. You don't realize that if he didn't exist there would be some other person in his exact position, who would also have become a Distinguished Professor, won awards, written 450 publications, etc. The machine was already in place, his slot was going to get filled; his mind didn't discover anything, those re [21:26]
mircea_popescu sults were coming no matter what, those publications were already going to be written. [21:26]
mircea_popescu The money isn't corrupting him into thinking childhood bipolar is underdiagnosed-- he truly believes it. The reason he believes it is his entire professional existence-- his whole identity-- is predicated on believing it. He's not a scientist, he's a priest. [21:26]
mircea_popescu He starts out as a young academic. He lands a spot in a research group that studies X, so he studies X, later he branches out into X+Y, or goes to Z, etc, eventually he finds himself a niche. And he believes in that niche, he believes in his data, no matter what it says. You can't convince him he's wrong because it isn't science and it isn't even a bias-- it's identity. [21:26]
mircea_popescu That's how an entire nation of psychiatrists could have been deluded into prescribing Depakote for maintenance when the data itself says not to do it. It's belief, not money, "we believe bipolar is a kindled disorder..." Hell, if Harvard believes it, what chance do the rest of us have?" [21:26]
asciilifeform and this is not even remotely limited to pharma. [21:27]
mircea_popescu has 0 to do with pharma. where usg goes, the usg.problems go. [21:27]
mircea_popescu wherever there's two ustards, there's ustardation, aka this sort of narcisiac neurosis. [21:27]
asciilifeform btw 'bipolar as kindled [as per 1950s theory of epileptic fit origins] disease' comes entirely from one thing: [21:27]
mircea_popescu heck, the fucking "expat" group in costa rica had it./ [21:28]
asciilifeform antiepileptics tend to be 1) infinitely polymorphable into patentability 2) lobotomize patient into quiescence [21:28]
mircea_popescu yes, obviously, "antiepileptics for everything" aka "everything to do with the brain will be fixed by fucking with these neurotransmitters" comes from exactly this fertile field. [21:29]
mircea_popescu and the entire "everything wrong is really wrong with the brain" ie "not criminality but imbalance" so on and so forth are only superficially an ideology matter, ie "humanism" run amok us style. [21:29]
asciilifeform but i will note the overall ~direction~ of usg psychiatry. [21:29]
BingoBoingo antiepileptics tend to work on ion channels, antipsychotics/antidepressants fuck with neurotransmitters [21:29]
mircea_popescu fundamentally, they're exactly driven by this tecxh [21:29]
mircea_popescu technological happenstance. [21:29]
mircea_popescu this discussion exactly mirrors yesterdauy's discussion about diesels. [21:30]
asciilifeform much the same as that of sov психушка [21:30]
asciilifeform there ~were~ dopaminergics. [21:30]
mircea_popescu the "regulators" had 0 to do with it. while the refinery process poured out diesel fuel, you were gonna run diesels. [21:30]
mircea_popescu while petrochem pours out depakote, you're gonna fucking feed people depakote and stfu. [21:30]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: not really the case here. petrochem had equally easy time pouring out dopaminergics as it does neuroleptics [21:31]
mircea_popescu notrly. [21:31]
mircea_popescu see, the uppers risk cascading. [21:32]
mircea_popescu the downers just make people stfu and sit down. [21:32]
asciilifeform naturally [21:32]
BingoBoingo Depakote was popular because drug companies made conditions for the insurance companies to pay for it. [21:32]
asciilifeform usg would rather have a herd of depressives than manics, yes [21:32]
mircea_popescu BingoBoingo but they only did that because it was accessible. [21:32]
BingoBoingo Before Depakote, it was seroquel, after depakote it was Zyprexa [21:32]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform not even usg related. it is CHEAPER. [21:32]

asciilifeform to make the pill? nope. [21:33]
mircea_popescu no. cheaper to make these than those. cheaper to prescribe them. cheaper to take them. [21:33]
mircea_popescu in the very lowest sense of it all. cheaper in adp terms. [21:33]

* DreadKnight has quit (Quit: #AncientBeast - Master Your Beasts ( )) [21:33]
mircea_popescu BingoBoingo these aren't different. [21:34]
mircea_popescu psychiatry is being a slut while pretending she's having amorous complications. [21:34]
mircea_popescu it still fucks the same dude every night. [21:34]
asciilifeform is PeterL around ? let's look at the synthesis for either. [21:34]
BingoBoingo Sure, but they switch around condom brands [21:34]
asciilifeform i don't see anything in the structures that would suggest a substantial difference in cost per kg. [21:34]
asciilifeform of, e.g., 'depakote' vs dextraamphetamine [21:35]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform your argument will reduce to something like "making 1950s bachelite and fuel oil is '''cheaper''' than making diesel and wd40". this is equivalent to saying "z80 is cheaper to make than pentium 3". both are incorrect. [21:35]
mircea_popescu pentium 3 is ACTUALLY cheaper to make than z80 ever was. [21:35]
asciilifeform z80 is absolutely cheaper. [21:35]
mircea_popescu not so. [21:35]
mircea_popescu "absolutely" is a meaningless term. yes, you think it exists. good for you. [21:35]
asciilifeform unless one goes 'but no one is tooled for it' [21:35]
mircea_popescu but outside of your pinning it down, it does not exist. [21:35]
mircea_popescu aha. [21:35]
mircea_popescu it's not that "no one is tooled for it". it's that theyre not TOOLABLE for it. and if they WERE, it'd be expensive. [21:36]
mircea_popescu consider home cooking. it is ABSOLUTELY the cheapest way to feed a fambly. [21:36]
mircea_popescu except, not. [21:36]
mircea_popescu there isn't this "absolutely" . [21:36]
deedbot- [Trilema] Chez Cocus, or the Argentinian Chorus - [21:37]
mircea_popescu in the world where women cook as a matter of course, cooking is MORE EXPENSIVE than in the world where cooking would be "absolutely" less expensive but women would kill themselves if you allowed them in a kitchen [21:37]
mircea_popescu does this coallesce into sense on your side ? [21:38]
mircea_popescu speaking of nothing related, anyone recall the original patrick naughton trial ? compuserve exec, flew to La to meet a 40yo FBI agent that had been posing as a 13 yo girl in a dads&daughers sex chatroom. hung jury : all women voted to convict ; all men voted he;s innocent. [21:58]
asciilifeform hung != acquit [22:00]
mircea_popescu somehow THAT gender gap doesn't figure too prominently in "feminist" discourse today [22:00]
mircea_popescu but i think it informs, subconsciously, ALL of it. [22:00]
asciilifeform re: previous thread: i get the hypothesis, but it falls apart re: z80 specifically. as it is... still made. and is about $5 in qty. [22:01]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform iirc he went to work as an exeprty in fucking teens for the fbi afterwards. [22:01]
mircea_popescu so yes, it did. [22:01]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform $5 does not describe the price. [22:01]

mircea_popescu in the sense of, "put on provision slip, sign, costs nothing" [22:02]
mircea_popescu go, put z80 on the list. [22:02]
asciilifeform how does it 'cost nothing' ? [22:03]
asciilifeform pray to god, he drops a pallet down ? [22:03]
mircea_popescu suppose you're in soviet russia. [22:03]
mircea_popescu if you want a Tatra truck, ask for it. [22:03]
mircea_popescu if you want a general motors truck ? [22:03]
mircea_popescu your wife's cunt costs 0. teen poon costs... how much does it cost ? as alf says "might as well me from mars." [22:03]
mircea_popescu what company you ever heard of had a debate over "windows licensing costs" ? [22:04]
asciilifeform this is handy for the present day but does not explain how the pieces on the board got to where they are [22:04]
mircea_popescu "hey, maybe we should use linux, it's cheaper". sure, as a red herring for "red hat", which is not linux. [22:04]
mircea_popescu well, they got to where they are through a succession of present days. [22:04]
mircea_popescu you familiar with the mathematical sleigh of hand called "induction" rite. [22:05]
asciilifeform incidentally, for the two kinds of dope picked for this comparison, the packaging and distribution costs dwarf the actual cost of producing the pill [22:05]
mircea_popescu i show today and tomorrow and i won. [22:05]
mircea_popescu aha. [22:05]
mircea_popescu which is why we strictly ignore it. [22:05]
asciilifeform so what was cheaper on day 0 ? [22:05]
mircea_popescu a club. [22:05]
mircea_popescu you familiar with this, yes ? the romans kept going "why would someone farm when he could heroicly steal women and shit ?!?!?!" [22:06]
asciilifeform aha [22:06]
mircea_popescu so then. [22:06]
mircea_popescu the fundamental problem of reality is that for things to work, things don't actually have to work. [22:07]
asciilifeform except where they do. [22:07]
mircea_popescu which is just another restatement of "people are insane" which is pretty much the oldest observation in the book that everyone keeps restating self-importantly and lo, it's voltaire! it's nietsche! it's existentialism! it's your grandmother vigin! etgc [22:08]

mircea_popescu yes the people that won won. but this means nothing in context. [22:09]
mircea_popescu ofcourse they were gonna win etc. [22:09]
* asciilifeform is palpably confused [22:09]
mircea_popescu look, let's go at it this way. in your own private experience, as a witness, how many times did a horde of idiots on some idiot forum know better than me ? [22:10]
mircea_popescu i'm still here, they as individuals are not. but they as group are still here. perhaps to outlast me. [22:10]
asciilifeform as per the 'infinite hitpoints' article from mircea_popescu's www, aha [22:10]
mircea_popescu the idiot can not lose, because by the time he's lost he's gone. where's the neobee schmuck ? [22:10]
mircea_popescu not around, that;s where. [22:10]
asciilifeform or my personal favourite 'cockroaches will inherit the earth' [22:10]
mircea_popescu so in this sense, there is no "unless it does". yes, they'll die. [22:10]
mircea_popescu they'll die anyway. [22:10]
mircea_popescu things are only meaningful to those capable to perceive meaning, and this ALREADY means not-them. [22:11]
mircea_popescu in aother formulation. [22:11]
mircea_popescu if multiverse, and if in ALL possible verses picking a on X quesdtion results in annihilation, this means exactly nothing. the a pickers aren't in any way different from the non-a pickers. [22:12]
mircea_popescu "oh, the end of their world is visible from our world". a) no, it isn't ; b) so ? [22:12]

mircea_popescu it's a very plain statement that dunning-kruger, and consequently, the reward for being not an idiot is not accessible in idiot terms. [22:18]
asciilifeform this - yes. [22:18]
mircea_popescu this for some reason has to be stated. [22:18]
asciilifeform hell, this was even in (pre-braindamage) paul graham [22:19]
asciilifeform in his 'blub' article. [22:19]
mircea_popescu generally it is a common mark of middling sanity. [22:19]
asciilifeform << it. [22:19]
assbot Beating the Averages ... ( ) [22:19]
mircea_popescu but back to our point of interest : your expectation that "z80" and "pentium" costs can be meaningfully compared breaks down. [22:19]
mircea_popescu when they can be compared, z80 loses. where they be meaningfully compared, common ground breaks down. [22:20]
mircea_popescu so - efficient markets, yes. but only if markets. and there's no guarantee everything you imagine can be a market. [22:20]
mircea_popescu this is trivially understood either through geometry or high physics. there are fewer things than you can write equations for. [22:21]
asciilifeform recall the crashing flashlight ? [22:21]
mircea_popescu aha. [22:21]
asciilifeform and yes, cost is not a scalar. but as someone who actually buys things i am led to partially differentiate. i.e. if i personally need max cpu ~quantity~ for my personal bag of money, i will be buying z80. [22:23]
mircea_popescu and if you want maximum sploodge for your penis you buy brunettes. [22:23]
