mircea_popescu "Over the past 12 years, anesthesiologist Scott Reuben revolutionized the way physicians provide pain relief to patients undergoing orthopedic surgery for everything from torn ligaments to worn-out hips. Now, the profession is in shambles after an investigation revealed that at least 21 of Reuben's papers were pure fiction, and that the pain drugs he touted in them may have slowed postoperative healing."

PeterL Clearly the current research funding model is borked, is there a more reasonable approach favored by La Serenisima? [01:41]
mircea_popescu how about spend some public money on random items and only allow arbitrarily selected scientist people to touch them, for arbitrary intervals, arbitrarily ? [01:43]
mircea_popescu sort-of like soviet science worked. [01:43]
mircea_popescu but it is very important to not provide any sort of mechanism for any of this to be sorted out. [01:44]
mircea_popescu maybe something like the nielsen ratings. have a minister of science which visits strip clubs, shows the girls pictures of scientists and research facilities and asks them to mix and match. [01:45]
mircea_popescu also shoot some of them, now and again, i guess. [01:47]

shinohai School? What ya in school for m8? [07:51]
shinohai Typical Monday for me, perusing boards to see if anyone needs any horribly-written Spanish articles translated into English. [07:52]
shinohai That usually means I say "fuck it" by 1 pm and spend the afternoon drinking wine. [07:52]
wyrdmantis yeah, it's not a real, school, it's a course... like a master. Maybe you don't know that i'm in italy... we have courses for everything [07:55]
shinohai One of my best friends is from Italy, but he lives in Venezuela now. [07:56]
wyrdmantis lucky him :) [07:56]
wyrdmantis but your right, school is almost useless [07:57]
shinohai :/ [07:57]
wyrdmantis but parents force you to go... [07:57]
shinohai Mine certainly didn't force me to go. My grandparents pushed me more than my parents did. [07:58]
wyrdmantis And did you listen to him? [08:01]
shinohai If I take classes now, I do the most ridiculous things. Took a sommeliers course last year because I wanted to appreciate wine more. [08:01]
shinohai There weren't any "wine appreciation classes" that I could find, but hey sommeliers know wine. [08:01]
wyrdmantis that's cool, come in italy if you want to know wine ;) [08:02]
wyrdmantis my brother's wife works with prosecco producers [08:02]
punkman shinohai: how long was the sommelier course? [08:09]
shinohai punkman 3 nights a week over 4 months [08:09]
shinohai Now i know exactly when to serve the Night Train and what dishes Mogen David pairs well with. [08:10]
punkman shinohai: not bad, did it have the WSET-approved stamp too? [08:12]
shinohai I wish, but it was just a local course I think. Restaurants are all over here, so eventually I could probably find one. [08:15]
shinohai heh WSET has a online course !!! [08:16]
punkman I was making a list of wine-related schools/courses last week, hence the curiosity [08:17]
punkman there was a bunch of WSET-approved schools with online courses [08:17]
punkman although I don't see how online makes sense [08:18]
shinohai Me neither. The experience is a physical one, in that it does require taste, smell, etc. [08:21]

mircea_popescu mods work too fast. [15:59]
kakobrekla i dont think the fees matter (yet). 0conf takes zero conf txes, meaning it just has to propagate, not be included in bc [15:59]

Xplosionist my client says 10/13/15 12:50, and I think that's 00:00-4. [15:59]
Xplosionist the transaction looks like 07:31 (UTC?) [16:00]
Xplosionist Right. And, I'd expected my client to send it right away, just not to know about it's confirmation until it caught up. [16:01]
Xplosionist But, maybe the bitcoin core client doesn't work the way I thought it did. [16:01]
Xplosionist Oh, wait, you can't actually _send_ a transaction without being in-sync, can you? [16:02]
mircea_popescu yes you can [16:02]
Xplosionist Oh. Well, then to what i said before. I expected it would work. [16:02]
shinohai Don't even need core client to sign a tx and push it. [16:02]
Xplosionist shinohai: yeah, but core client is what I had/have, and what I typically use. Just habit. [16:03]

asciilifeform not to mention that 'decriminalize' is an idiot newspeakism [22:10]
BingoBoingo not to mention that 'decriminalize' is an idiot newspeakism << A lot of this. Basically code for enforce with greater arbitratity and seize moar funds. [22:13]
asciilifeform it is merely the introduction of a new layer of chumps, 'lawful personal users' - who do not even need to physically exist to support new layers of 'moar studiez needed' mandarins, enforcer thugs, etc [22:14]
asciilifeform how 'lawful personal users' are to get their dope without contact with 'lawless impersonal' dope-dealing caste, remains undefined (because whole shebang is a joke) [22:15]

asciilifeform 'There are a few simple seeming functions in libc which turn out to be quite complicated under the hood. You call a function expecting a simple result, but then libc runs off and opens a bunch of sockets to remote servers and chats them up. This makes setting up a robust sandbox difficult and error prone. (Wait, what? Why is ls creating sockets???)' << lulz [23:01]
