pete_dushenski "A woman is suing New York City after she spent eight days in a mental hospital because, she claims, police didn't believe she, a black woman, could own a BMW." [00:18]
pete_dushenski "When she arrived at the impound lot and told officials she was looking for her car - a 2003 BMW 325Cl, she knew there was something wrong as soon as she requested her vehicle. "I just felt like from the moment I said I owned a BMW, I was looked at as a liar," Brock told PIX 11. "They put me in handcuffs and said they just need to put me in handcuffs to take me to my car. And I said OK, whatever it's gonna take [00:18]
pete_dushenski to get to my car."" [00:18]
pete_dushenski "Doctors believed she was suffering from bipolar disorder, she claims, and tried for days to get Brock to admit she didn't own the luxury car. They also tried to convince Brock that she wasn't really a banker and President Obama didn't really follow her on Twitter, though both facts are true. [00:19]
pete_dushenski The worst part? She was stuck with a $13,000 hospital bill for the pleasure." [00:19]

pete_dushenski ah yes, the famous schedule. [00:22]
pete_dushenski you wouldn't happen to have a copy would you ? [00:22]
asciilifeform this here is that rare bird, the 'five-year plan' that might actually get met. [00:23]

assbot Logged on 15-09-2015 20:25:14; anton_osika: mircea_popescu: you wrote the contract - the "long party" is the payer of the invoice". Nowhere does it state that the "long party" will need a PGP signature for payment. This is solely interpretation - and you are NOT paying for a future delivery contract. Do you have any rationale for this? [00:31]
assbot Logged on 26-08-2014 23:24:06; antonosika: BingoBoingo: the problem is that it is possible to argue that the deposit was not from the long party [00:31]

assbot ... ( ) [00:34]
mircea_popescu but mostly the former. [00:34]
danielpbarron mircea_popescu, he goes on to agree with BingoBoingo, that the sender is not the "long party" [00:34]
BingoBoingo asciilifeform: The fights not in the event title. This event's title is Mayweather-Berto. And yet fights serving as the prelude much better. [00:34]
mircea_popescu danielpbarron well that much is right. the sender don't enter into it, the long party is whoever can sign with that sig. [00:34]
BingoBoingo mircea_popescu, he goes on to agree with BingoBoingo, that the sender is not the "long party" << I never talked on who is what party. I just was on people with keys are parties. Without keys STFU. [00:35]

mod6 on my default phone browser too, the text in the nodes seems to bleed over the boundry. but it's ok with FF on my phone, and FF on my notebook [00:49]
pete_dushenski mircea_popescu: what, impound lots have delivery services in ro ? cuz this isn't a thing elsewhere [00:49]

thestringpuller scandalous as shit. [12:28]
mircea_popescu you know, this "fiction as reality/reality as fiction" approach fits the usian behaviour remarkably well. they "feel bad for animals" because they think the superset of "animals" is in a disnety cartoon / the guy in a suit at disney world. as above, the lost XT imbecile imagines he has identified in a putative script of an imaginary film of reality the chekov gun, and so therefore, economy of means, bip 101 necessarily [12:29]
mircea_popescu will happen because things can't just go to waste (in fiction - nevermind that in reality 99% of everything exists as waste and that includes his entire existence) [12:29]

* gabridome has quit (Client Quit) [19:32]
ag3nt_zer0 and 2) what would be the correct understanding that contradicts his greater metaphysical points about ultimate reality and what constitutes an authentic revealed tradition or not... what do you mean by the locals? and would not Ananda Coomaraswamy, geunons contemporary and equal in many ways but with a mind turned toward the art of the east and west be a counter to that? [19:33]
ag3nt_zer0 phf: thanks for checking out out btw [19:34]
ag3nt_zer0 it out jeez [19:34]
phf ag3nt_zer0: theosophy does completely fanciful free interpretation based on amateur translations by various aristocrats gone native. any sane person will look at it and go "wtf" upon closer inspection, but you're still left with amateur translations. not to mention that you need representatives of traditions to interpret those esoteric texts (what i mean by locals) [19:45]

phf the translations are universally bad, but gave westerners first glimpses of "eastern thought" [19:52]
ag3nt_zer0 trinque: yes. one is better off reading wittgestein or heidegger over the theosophical trash... but imo guenon, schuon, coomaraswami (ananda) and evola are infinitely better to read than those philosophers you mentioned - and they are not at all aligned with theosophy - except for guenons youthful foray into it as mentioned [19:55]
phf as far as ultimate knowledge, different schools have contradictory answers to some of those fundamental questions (say samkhya vs advaita vedanta's take on self vs absolute) [20:04]

asciilifeform alternatively, chessboard-alternate colour of patches included in releases; ones not included, remain white [23:43]
mircea_popescu there are what, 24 bits of color ? take the 24 signatories most highly ranked by mike and set or unset bytes accordingly. [23:43]
mircea_popescu can this be done ? [23:43]
mod6 oh huh! [23:43]
mod6 im sure something can be done there. [23:44]
mod6 :] [23:44]
asciilifeform set the text to be negated 24 bits of this, to remain readable [23:44]
* assbot gives voice to pete_dushenski [23:44]
asciilifeform this would make it a little hard to indicate actually-released-vs-not, though, no ? [23:44]
mircea_popescu well because of the nature of the svg, you actually get very predictablew coloring [23:45]
mircea_popescu because you can add your own postprocessing to null out some bytes. [23:45]
mircea_popescu some bits* [23:45]
mircea_popescu ie your green if foundation signed can be interpreted from it if one so wishes in one linbe [23:46]
asciilifeform iirc it takes standard vga 24-bit colour for text and background [23:46]
mircea_popescu ya [23:46]
mod6 it's this kinda thing: [23:46]
* asciilifeform pulls svg spec down from shelf, blows off eons of dust [23:46]

mircea_popescu mod6 ya, RGB: rgb(255,0,128) (0 .. 255, 0 .. 255, 0 .. 255) << so basically its 01010101 10101010 01010101 [23:47]
asciilifeform << l0l [23:48]
mircea_popescu this would indicate that of the collection of people who signed, the 2nd 4th 6th 8th 9th 11th 13th etc signed it [23:48]
assbot Email from CFTC asking about BitFinex trading activities : Bitcoin ... ( ) [23:48]
asciilifeform woah the arrow mouseovers work !! [23:49]
mircea_popescu :D [23:49]
mircea_popescu i wanna send this guy a cookie or something i like him so much [23:50]
mod6 awe :] [23:50]
mod6 yup, now you have descendants [23:51]
asciilifeform i officially take back the thing i said re: things not getting done until i do them ...! [23:51]
BingoBoingo !b 2 [23:51]
assbot Last 2 lines bashed and pending review. ( ) [23:51]
mod6 that part of the code is gnarly. gotta re-work a bunch of this. [23:51]
mircea_popescu mod6 i take it that the idea of making V the epicenter of bitcoin releases going further is aprpoved by the foundation ? [23:52]

* mircea_popescu will send 1 btc to the foundation donation nao, because srsly. [23:53]
mod6 it is by me anyway! [23:53]
mod6 Thank you, Sir! [23:54]
* BingoBoingo humbly requests a knowledgeable party write a qntra on the recent v-gasm [23:55]
asciilifeform btw this is the picture i needed to finally say clearly how 'v' ~was meant to work~ [23:55]
mod6 'V' is beautiful in its simplicity. [23:56]
asciilifeform a 'press' of, e.g., bleeding-edge would take asciilifeform_maxint_locks_corrected.vpatch and asciilifeform_add_verifyall_option.vpatch as the 'head' arguments. [23:56]
asciilifeform right now it takes asciilifeform_add_verifyall_option.vpatch - but this is misleading, because it does not in fact depend on asciilifeform_maxint_locks_corrected.vpatch [23:57]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 33353 @ 0.00076419 = 25.488 BTC [+] {5} [23:58]
mod6 that's one of the next things i have to tackle, aside from the cleanup of some stuff: press [23:58]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 35600 @ 0.00076592 = 27.2668 BTC [+] [23:59]
