mircea_popescu "Hi. I want to be with a man who wants to start a strong relationship and who can care of his beloved woman. Are you independent and tender man? I would be happy to get know each other better! I am a attractive and affectionate lady. I can add that I am well-tempered and romantic. " [08:59]
mircea_popescu such is the nature of the beta male that "romantic" (aka, sexually dysfunctional) is a selling point [08:59]
mircea_popescu (hey, she sucks at fucking, which means better men won't take her from me!) [09:00]
mircea_popescu i have nfi what "well tempered" is supposed to mean, but perhaps resilient, which is in fact a corner stone of feminity. [09:00]
ascii_panama waiwut [09:00]
mircea_popescu use it in a sentence. [09:00]
ascii_panama this is a work of spmodin, not meant to be understood by man [09:01]
ascii_panama no one actually reads and believes any of this. [09:01]
mircea_popescu it is meant to be understood by "man", yes. [09:01]

mircea_popescu allow me to quote, 1 sec [09:01]
ascii_panama anyone who might end up with the notion that there is something to buy into here, could not possibly have money - on account of profound clinical retardation [09:02]
ascii_panama but in the abstract - the notion that xxx might reliably have sex, vs a specimen who won't, is a 'selling point', yes [09:03]

ascii_panama though marginally more plausible [09:13]
mircea_popescu we shall keep this in our compartment. [09:13]
ascii_panama machines are far easier to produce than hot gurlz [09:13]
ascii_panama and no one has ever been turned down by a lisp mach. [09:13]
ascii_panama these differences are not unimportant. [09:14]
BingoBoingo ascii_panama: Depends on the production scale [09:14]
ascii_panama any scale. [09:14]
mircea_popescu anyway, ftr, men over 60 are BY FAR the most vulnerable demographic. [09:15]
mircea_popescu not that I care, fuck em, but as far as truth goes. [09:15]
ascii_panama this is obvious to a doorknob [09:15]
mircea_popescu i find it particularly poetic that they should get raped with a spiked club, incidentally. [09:16]
mircea_popescu were they better men, we wouldn't be here. [09:16]

ascii_panama some nonzero portion of socialistoidderp is 'revenge' of low-smv folks against the high. dan mocsny observed this and it is a hypothesis with some explanatory power. [09:28]

mircea_popescu and on and on AND ON it goes. they are ALSO calling on the un raporteur for terrorism. it's also abuse, rape, victims, trauma, the works. [11:32]

mircea_popescu "You violated my consent, my body and my trust. You made me doubt my love for rope and my career as a professional model. What you did is legally considered as rape, and YOU are not allowed to minimise it for your own interest. YOU are only allowed to be sorry, certainly not to be upset at anyone for letting other people know what you did." [11:33]
mircea_popescu apparently, as the female mind goes, men have agency only with their permission or something. [11:33]
lobbes 'You made me doubt my love for rope' lel [11:34]
mircea_popescu well i can see that point. [11:34]
mircea_popescu sort-of like how bad management makes boys doubt their love of computers, and idiot teachers make kids generally doubt their love of books. [11:34]
williamdunne I can understand being upset at being raped as-well, assuming it wasn't one of the new-fangled versions of "rape" [11:35]
mircea_popescu but bad management ain't rape. [11:35]
mircea_popescu williamdunne as the old expression goes in porn, "if you're naked, you're fucking" [11:35]
mircea_popescu girl doesn't wanna, girl stays off the set. [11:35]
williamdunne mircea_popescu: I can understand that position, but equally someone walking home, being dragged into a hedge and raped is certainly, most definitely rape - but I don't know that backstory of what you're talking about here [11:36]
mircea_popescu williamdunne " what happened ? some derp tied up a professional model he barely knew, and then fingered her. she had no idea he was going to finger her, and didn't care for it." [11:36]
williamdunne mircea_popescu: Yeah I'd say that probably counts as some form as rape. In the same way that stealing a handbag from inside a locked house is burglary [11:37]
mircea_popescu the guy is a total douche, as far as his emails let on, and the woman is both smarter and more collected than him, for sure. they weren't a good fit anyway. [11:37]
mircea_popescu williamdunne because why, penetration ? [11:38]
williamdunne mircea_popescu: pretty much [11:38]
mircea_popescu if you go in for a prostate exam and doc sticks finger in you without asking specifically, also rape ? [11:38]
williamdunne If I didn't go there for a prostate exam, yeah I'd guess so [11:39]
mircea_popescu how about dentist ? i don't recall a dentist ever asking me if it's ok to fuck up my teeth. [11:39]
mircea_popescu well it's where it gets iffy. no idea what they ACTUALLY went there for. [11:39]
mircea_popescu she has a story, he has another, as it would be the case. [11:39]
williamdunne Its definitely 'iffy', but people are particularly sensitive about their sensitives [11:39]
mircea_popescu surely. [11:39]
mircea_popescu and i;m not saying it's good or anything, or that the woman should not protest or anything. [11:40]
mircea_popescu but if you call every bicycle a tank soon enough the army's going to be riding into battle on clown materiel. [11:40]

pete_dushenski williamdunne: curious, what do you mean by "Generally they're against inflation of block sizes, not an increase." [12:30]
williamdunne pete_dushenski: From what I can tell the objection you all have is that Gavin's suggestion is constant inflation, as opposed to the block-size being anything other than 1mb [12:32]

williamdunne I definitely agree that too large blocks would break it, but I also think that if bitcoin is to grow we will need bigger blocks [12:42]
trinque williamdunne: so let it bang into the ceiling and see what people do [12:43]
ben_vulpes williamdunne: you're missing the point. [12:43]
ben_vulpes if a thing exists with a block size that is not one megabyte, /that thing is not bitcoin/. [12:43]
williamdunne trinque: Sure, thats what I would advocate too [12:44]
ben_vulpes also what is this "to grow" nonsense. [12:44]
trinque ben_vulpes: that sounds like a tautology [12:44]
trinque bitcoin is bitcoin because it is bitcoin [12:44]
ben_vulpes nitrogen is nitrogen because of the arrangement of electrons in valence shells. [12:44]
williamdunne trinque: Bitcoin currently worth x potatoes, bitcoin in the future to be worth y potatoes [12:44]
ben_vulpes is that still a tautology? [12:44]
trinque no, that example is not [12:45]
ben_vulpes so if you change the block size, you get deuterium. [12:45]
williamdunne It wouldn't be bitcoin of today but it would still be bitcoin [12:45]
williamdunne "If I cut my hair, am I still williamdunne" [12:45]
trinque ben_vulpes: it is currently unknown what an appropriate blocksize would be [12:46]
trinque 1mb seems to be a reasonable cap [12:46]
trinque but is not magic [12:46]
trinque the way to find out what a good blocksize would be is to let the thing bang into the ceiling so we know what that looks like [12:46]
ben_vulpes what then distinguishes bitcoin from XXXcoin? [12:46]
ben_vulpes i guess they're all bitcoin or something retarded like that [12:47]
ben_vulpes appropriate shmappropriate. [12:47]
ben_vulpes it's as magic as 21M. [12:47]
ben_vulpes what's the worst case scenario of hitting that ceiling? [12:47]
trinque my point is you're claiming to know more than you do [12:47]
trinque not that 1mb isn't the right value [12:47]
williamdunne The blocksize is a limiting factor of its usage, 21m doesn't thanks to 8 decimal places [12:48]
trinque one will know what happens when the blocksize limit is reached ... when the blocksize limit is reached [12:48]
ben_vulpes i'm saying that "right" doesn't matter. [12:48]
ben_vulpes 21me8 then, williamdunne. [12:48]
ben_vulpes trinque: you gotta have a hypothesis about what's going to happen, man. [12:48]
ben_vulpes especially if you're even sort of supporting this blocksize change derpage. [12:48]
trinque fees, and prioritizing transactions according to them [12:49]
trinque I don't support anything, much less this [12:49]
ben_vulpes so no technical fears then? [12:49]
trinque 1mb is "yeah that's probably big enough" [12:49]
williamdunne ben_vulpes: Hypothesis; if we ever get to the point where we are completely filling blocks and fees start going through the roof, either growth will halter or it will fork - and the 1mb version will be virtually barren [12:49]
ben_vulpes the thing about bitcoins is that it a system that conserves, and resists diddling in the vein of fiat economies. [12:49]
ben_vulpes williamdunne: alternatively, the big blocks version will be populated with retards. [12:50]
ben_vulpes and what is this "growth" thing you keep banging on about? [12:50]
ben_vulpes usd denominated value of bitcoins /literally does not matter/ [12:50]
ben_vulpes "oh gosh so we can all be richer in the fyooooture instead of working today" sort of nonsense [12:51]
williamdunne ben_vulpes: Of course it matters, its a network. More people = more useful. I don't see how that can be anything but an objective truth. [12:52]
ben_vulpes asciilifeform: these i suppose are the muppets you're looking for. [12:52]
mircea_popescu williamdunne what if in going from 5 to 10 you lose the one worth 1 and gain 5 worth .1 each ? [12:53]
ben_vulpes williamdunne: is not the inability to interdict funds enough for you? [12:53]
ben_vulpes williamdunne: is not the hard cap of 21M of the thing enough for you? [12:53]
ben_vulpes such progress. [12:53]
trinque ben_vulpes: I'm not going to accept being called a muppet for saying we're not in a position to evaluate an appropriate block size, therefore changing it is unwise. [12:53]
ben_vulpes not you, trinque [12:53]
trinque well GOOD [12:53]
trinque :) [12:53]
ben_vulpes sheesh [12:53]
ben_vulpes touchy tatiana, you [12:54]
williamdunne ben_vulpes: Yes, its very useful. But the value of your coins will inflate fast if its just 12 people using it over and over. [12:55]
mircea_popescu ... [12:55]
williamdunne mircea_popescu: Sorry not entirely sure what you mean [12:55]
mircea_popescu that's not what inflation is. [12:55]
mircea_popescu williamdunne you have 5 users. one of which is worth "1 unit of useful". you dd 5 more. they together are worth 0.5 units of useful. [12:56]
mircea_popescu becuase of this addition, that one leaves. [12:56]
mircea_popescu you have now grown and are worth less. [12:56]
mircea_popescu this happens ALL THE TIME. [12:56]
mircea_popescu it's nto even the exception, it is the rule. facebook today is not worth 1/10 of what facebook was worth in 2005 [12:57]
mircea_popescu adding more people, especially if adding more people SELECTED by the criteria that "they are poor, stupid and usleess enough to need to be added specifically" is a recipe for making your thing worth less. [12:57]
mircea_popescu not more. [12:57]

williamdunne mircea_popescu: That seems counter-intuitive, I'm not trying to over-value the poor and stupid here. [12:58]
mircea_popescu really ? [12:58]
mircea_popescu you ever held a party ? [12:59]
williamdunne Yep, but seems like a relatively invalid comparison [13:01]
mircea_popescu don't tell, show. [13:02]
mircea_popescu why does it seem so ? [13:02]
williamdunne Because I don't have to talk to everyone using bitcoin at the same time nor put up with their noise (in particular, anyway) [13:02]
mircea_popescu that is exactly what you have to do. [13:03]
mircea_popescu it's worse, because a) every party participant is stuck b) keeping ~complete~ records of the whole thing c) forever. it's not just a process thing like the party. it's that you have to write their noiise down, and pay for warehouses. [13:05]

lobbes but it isn't the currency that makes your business profitable [13:07]
pete_dushenski williamdunne: but the barriers to entry are lower in the fiat world [13:07]
pete_dushenski and bitcoin quite likes keeping those barriers high [13:07]
williamdunne pete_dushenski: Well that depends on what you are doing [13:07]
mircea_popescu yeah, in return "but there could be cute girls" [13:07]
mircea_popescu no, there won't be. it will be a bunch of fucktarded dudebros, that aren't even legal to drink. [13:08]
williamdunne lobbes: Sure, but it alters things massively. Just-Dice with 7 billion potential customers is better than Just-Dice with 2,000,000 potential [13:08]

lobbes those 7 billion customers aren't necessarily worth more than those 2 million [13:09]
williamdunne lobbes: In terms of bitcoin? no, in terms of potatoes? yes [13:10]
mircea_popescu because you imagine there's an intrinsic minimum value for "human beings" [13:10]
mircea_popescu there isn't. [13:10]
mircea_popescu you also imagine there is a cap. there isn't a cap. [13:10]
mircea_popescu one guy can and usually is worth more than an entire country. [13:10]
mircea_popescu we have this situation right now in argentina, for instance, and there's 40mn of em derps. [13:10]
williamdunne Yeah, but that one guy isn't going to be betting all his money on Just-Dice, collectively there is a lot of value to exploit [13:11]
mircea_popescu this is wishful thinking. [13:12]
mircea_popescu there's no value "collectively". there seems to be, currently, because the usg / ag etc are propping them up on borrowed money. [13:12]
mircea_popescu otherwise, poor people are a liability not an asset. they are below zero. [13:12]
mircea_popescu every large enough operation has this set of accounts that are below water - cost more to service than they're worth. which is why fiat banks are charging per account [13:13]
mircea_popescu which is why obamacare, etc. [13:14]
mircea_popescu the truth is that for about half of the us, the marginal benefit of spending another 1k per capita on their health is unrecoverable, as they won't produce in excess of that 1k. ever. [13:15]
trinque ben_vulpes: aint even mad; and I agree that any modified thing may not merit being called bitcoin [13:15]
ben_vulpes every large enough operation has this set of accounts that are below water - cost more to service than they're worth. which is why fiat banks are charging per account << myeah i got some of these [13:15]
mircea_popescu the bait and switch thing here is that the "modified thing" can only exist by itself, so it really needs us to you know, give up on bitcoin proper. [13:15]
mircea_popescu much like paper dollars can only exist if there's no strong currency and "welfare states" in a world without rhodesia and so on. [13:16]

mircea_popescu it's just that the "larger = better" argument is rank nonsense. [13:19]
mircea_popescu we might well discover that actually 1mb is way too much, and all we can afford is less. [13:21]

williamdunne btc entral plus exchange, pretty catchy [16:04]
mircea_popescu aanyways. you actually intend to develop that bdsm thing ? [16:04]
mircea_popescu it's a huge time investment, and it really won't work halfway. [16:04]
mircea_popescu if it works at all. max guy doesn't have a point about women, but he does have a point about stupid. [16:05]
williamdunne mircea_popescu: I can do it, but I'm not hugely interested in running it as a business [16:05]
mircea_popescu how'd you intend to do it ? [16:05]
williamdunne mircea_popescu: Well either I'd make it so it almost completely handles itself, or let someone else run it after I build it [16:05]
mircea_popescu that part i got. [16:06]
mircea_popescu i don't see specifically whatr running. you can't moderate it anyway. [16:06]
williamdunne Well dependent on the business model it could be easy or complex [16:07]
mircea_popescu this is still pretty vague. but my q was more technical-oriented. i dunno if "facebook clone" package exists. seems likely it might. [16:07]
mircea_popescu one could conceivably bolt extant js to that be done in a day. [16:08]
mircea_popescu if product a bit shoddy. [16:08]
williamdunne Ah sorry, well it depends. Obviously its a pretty lose spec but I'd probably go for something that has all the basic functionality built on a probably ASP stack, rather than doing anything too fancy with pretty colours everywhere [16:09]
mircea_popescu, srsly ? [16:09]
mircea_popescu what was multibet in ? [16:09]
williamdunne PHP even worse, yeah asp or phoenix framework [16:09]
williamdunne Maybe D... but less likely [16:09]
mircea_popescu i don't even think anyone has windows servers [16:10]
mircea_popescu certainly the first time i heard this one proposed. [16:10]
williamdunne Its pretty good, all ties in really well with various meta-db layers [16:10]
williamdunne Same with Elixir really [16:11]
mircea_popescu it's a good thing alf's in the air. [16:11]
williamdunne Yes, I know you're less fond of windows aha [16:11]
williamdunne But its a BDSM site storing data encrypted client-side, hardly need for uber security [16:11]
trinque get you a postgresql, son [16:12]
mircea_popescu there's two problems here. one being that if nobody has windows servers nobody can, in an emergency say, provie a backup. [16:12]
mircea_popescu so maintainability. [16:12]
williamdunne trinque: I normally use postgre [16:12]
williamdunne trinque: Well thats a lie, I normally do if working in Elixir/Phoenix [16:12]
mircea_popescu the other is that well, we don't know how efficient it is. ie, how much bw/packetage/userbase it can support per mm of hardware. [16:12]
mircea_popescu does something like gluster even exist for mvc ? [16:13]
mircea_popescu or we the clustering thing is called, gaproxy ? [16:13]
trinque mircea_popescu: replication at the db layer is what's called for there [16:13]
mircea_popescu does it work ? [16:14]
williamdunne I don't have any statistics about performance but I've found it works pretty well. I've only done basic clustering before using it tbh, doing things like sharing secrets for authentication [16:14]
trinque if you're read heavy works great, if you're write heavy gets harder [16:14]
mircea_popescu this promises to be the worst mix. [16:14]
mircea_popescu ie, reads and writes [16:14]
* marteen (~martin@ has joined #bitcoin-assets [16:15]

williamdunne mircea_popescu: I can't imagine it would ever become a problem for SQLserver, if it did we could just shard it like hell. Its not like it needs sub 1 second latency on everything [16:18]
mircea_popescu nah, for all i care make a fixed 2 second delay. [16:19]
mircea_popescu encourage user to think before posting [16:19]
williamdunne Exactly, so we could shard the database a stupid amount, and stick half of it in NoSQL for things like private messages [16:19]
trinque nosql is a terrible idea man, always [16:20]
mircea_popescu im not proposing it's an unapproachable problem by any means. [16:20]

mircea_popescu so the million dollar question : are trannies self-harming for the same reason they're trannies, which is to say, broken fenotypes that failed to abort, like a mongoloid or a schizo ; or are trannies self-harming because being a tranny is so traumatic they get fucked up through childhood ? [19:12]
Pierre_Rochard “sweet 16-year-old … tender-hearted 17-year-old” - had problems with age identity too [19:13]
mircea_popescu age identity is a thing ? [19:14]

Pierre_Rochard To answer your million dollar question - may be both but I’d lean towards the latter, combined with the lack of emotional regulation prevalent in society [19:18]
mircea_popescu im drastically unaware of this. [19:18]
mircea_popescu i suspect age thing may be much more an issue in the us, because of idiotic alcohol laws [19:18]

mircea_popescu "I have decided I've had enough. I'm never going to transition successfully, even when I move out. I'm never going to be happy with the way I look or sound. I'm never going to have enough friends to satisfy me. I'm never going to have enough love to satisfy me. I'm never going to find a man who loves me. I'm never going to be happy. Either I live the rest of my life as a lonely man who wishes he were a woman or I live [19:20]
mircea_popescu my life as a lonelier woman who hates herself. There's no winning. There's no way out. I'm sad enough already, I don't need my life to get any worse. People say "it gets better" but that isn't true in my case. It gets worse. Each day I get worse. That's the gist of it, that's why I feel like killing myself. Sorry if that's not a good enough reason for you, it's good enough for me." [19:20]
mircea_popescu i dunno... seems like a perfect reason to me. [19:20]
