guevara246 Hey, I have a question regarding P2SH and timelocked transactions: in a use case where a client is purchasing a good or service using a 2 of 3 multisig scheme, can a timelocked transaction be broadcast to the network and invalidated by a second transaction, signed by the same agents, sending outputs to a different address?

thestringpuller ;;later tell guevara246 this is a problem I was working on. even with a single sig a timelocked transaction can be double spent if it another valid transaction is broadcasted and accepted before the timelock expires the original transaction becomes expired [01:57]

thestringpuller becomes invalidated* [01:57]
thestringpuller it's weird how this issue hasn't been addressed more in use cases since there is no way to really set up a trust fund of sorts with time-delayed transactions without the risk of the beneficiary double spending [01:58]

nubbins` humanoid doesn't mean littler human! [03:52]
mircea_popescu a humanoid is some sort of human-resembling thing. a factoid holds more prejudice : it's a nonfactual fact-looking thing. [03:52]

mircea_popescu been around for years, what's another weekend. [04:23]
mircea_popescu everything else went to shit, satoshi, mtgox, all the previous things that "were" bitcoin. we're still here. [04:23]
BlueMeanie4 ya i knew a bit about you [04:24]
BlueMeanie4 even mentioned you on some listervs [04:24]
BlueMeanie4 WOT that is [04:24]
nubbins` BlueMeanie4 what kinda options/futures you looking to buy [04:27]
BlueMeanie4 well want to know how the controls work [04:28]
BlueMeanie4 this is part of the problem, MARKETING is the big challenge for these sorts of instruments [04:28]
mircea_popescu nubbins` it's actually one of the best ways to get in the wot, fully paid future delivery contracts with someone already in. should be safe enough if dealing with a heavyweight for both parties. [04:28]
mircea_popescu BlueMeanie4 no it's not. they aren't for the mass market. [04:28]

* stormlight ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [04:29]
BlueMeanie4 actually our economic crisis was blamed on a sort of security [04:29]
mircea_popescu someone wants to cast a vote in the wonderous world of finance, he'd better demonstrate either intelligence or the ability to retain counsel. [04:29]
BlueMeanie4 and there are MASSIVE outstanding instruments that most believe will collapse [04:29]
mircea_popescu you don't say. [04:29]
BlueMeanie4 well part of the problem here is how to catalog the *offerings* for these instrumetns so I can easily invest or market them [04:30]
BlueMeanie4 example I want to make a bond for my business [04:30]
BlueMeanie4 but no one knows what my business does [04:30]
BlueMeanie4 but there are investors out there who might want to invest in my CLASS of credit [04:30]

BlueMeanie4 this is how mortgage financing works [04:31]

jborkl Mircea, if I need credit for the next 3 days will my WOT suffice? [04:32]
* punkman has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds) [04:33]
BlueMeanie4 well you WOT is one-dimensional. say you were to describe what the credit is FOR, ie. you want to finance a software project. then your market opens up, there are investors out there who invest in such things. [04:34]
BlueMeanie4 also collateralized contracts are very useful [04:35]

jborkl World of tanks heh [04:37]
BlueMeanie4 im familiar with it [04:37]
mircea_popescu so then what exactly do you mean by "one dimensional" [04:37]
mircea_popescu it's infinitely dimensional. [04:37]
BlueMeanie4 the point is that different classes of credit are valuable to different classes of people [04:37]
mircea_popescu exactly. [04:37]
BlueMeanie4 well WOT measures value by the person, not the type of credit this person is marketing [04:38]

mircea_popescu that made no sense. try again ? [04:38]

BlueMeanie4 are they both worth the same? [04:39]
mircea_popescu ... [04:39]
mircea_popescu "i order a dildo and a box of cookies in the same shop. are they worth the same ?" [04:39]
mircea_popescu that's the wrong question. is it equally likely the store will deliver my order is the right question. [04:39]
BlueMeanie4 thats a fairly specious and somewhat annoying response [04:39]
mircea_popescu and yes, i would say that they are equally likely to be delivered. [04:40]
BlueMeanie4 point is [04:40]
BlueMeanie4 yes i would buy one mortgage risk and not the other [04:40]
BlueMeanie4 these are facts of financial markets [04:40]
mircea_popescu but for no reasons to do with the actual risk. [04:40]
BlueMeanie4 try to get car insurance in detroit [04:40]
BlueMeanie4 and see what happens [04:40]
mircea_popescu strictly for reasons to do with what you're buying. [04:40]
mircea_popescu it's nonsense to claim they're the same things but with different risks,. [04:40]
BlueMeanie4 right i want to knwo what im buying [04:40]
mircea_popescu they're actually different things. [04:40]
BlueMeanie4 WOT only looks at the person issueing and while this isn't useless, it is possible to make much better systems [04:41]
mircea_popescu ok, so what you're buying is between you and your cp. [04:41]
BlueMeanie4 true [04:41]
mircea_popescu no, wot only looks at how likely it is for your cp to lie to you. [04:41]
BlueMeanie4 but its EASIER to market it if i can catalogue by risk class [04:41]
mircea_popescu but the reason you can't is because that's a fucktarded system made by lazy apes that doesn't work [04:41]
mircea_popescu which is why you're here, and which is why i'm not on ws. [04:41]
BlueMeanie4 youve got the basic contract mechanism, now you need securitizatino tools [04:41]
mircea_popescu because your system sucks. [04:41]
mircea_popescu the wot is the securization tool. [04:42]
BlueMeanie4 no you dont understand meaning of 'securitization' [04:42]
BlueMeanie4 it doesnt mean making securities per se [04:42]
BlueMeanie4 it means turning risk into a monetized resource [04:42]
mircea_popescu i do. the problem is that you'd like for shorthand that's accepted in an old, meanwhile abandoned system to work unioversally. [04:42]
mircea_popescu it doesn't work universally. [04:42]
mircea_popescu you'll have to learn new shorthand. [04:42]
mircea_popescu same principles, of course, but changes the engineer's life entirely. [04:43]
BlueMeanie4 i can write a contract lets say a futures contract right? [04:43]
mircea_popescu sure. [04:43]
BlueMeanie4 pretty simple [04:43]
BlueMeanie4 i give you 10 beans on christmas day 2015 [04:43]
mircea_popescu okay. [04:43]
BlueMeanie4 but can i resell that risk? [04:43]
mircea_popescu sure. [04:43]
BlueMeanie4 how [04:43]
mircea_popescu by... reselling it. making a new contract. [04:43]
BlueMeanie4 no thats not exactly the same [04:43]
mircea_popescu hell, the ether future contract specifically said it will allow assignment even. [04:44]
BlueMeanie4 because the VALUE of that RISK doesnt float on the market [04:44]
mircea_popescu no, it's not exactly the same. hence the comment above about shorthands, [04:44]
* heat ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [04:44]

BlueMeanie4 in modern markets [04:44]
BlueMeanie4 i can make that futures contract [04:44]
mircea_popescu your modern markets failed. [04:44]
mircea_popescu which is why we're here. [04:44]
BlueMeanie4 and the default collateral i can put on the market [04:44]
BlueMeanie4 and it can change hands [04:44]
BlueMeanie4 its very powerufl [04:44]
* assbot removes voice from jborkl [04:44]

mircea_popescu hey, you wanna stick to doing it that way by all means. [04:44]
mircea_popescu go ahead. it ain't happening here, and it won't survive the decade. [04:45]
BlueMeanie4 while thats a valid point, i dont think they failed BECAUSE of securitization altough these new methods did destablize [04:45]
BlueMeanie4 they are not inherently destructive [04:45]
* assbot removes voice from BlueMeanie4 [04:45]

* assbot gives voice to b00lcrap [04:45]
b00lcrap hi [04:46]
mircea_popescu they didn't fail because of securitization directly, but nevertheless they will fail unavoidably for reasons rooted in why that particular kind of securitization works that particular way. [04:46]

BlueMeanie4 theres nothing wrong with securitization, it's just like debt based money- a school of morons believes it is evil by some undefined ethos [04:48]

mircea_popescu b00lcrap srsly ? how many is many ? [04:49]

b00lcrap maybe thats not that many [04:49]
mircea_popescu b00lcrap 3 bits... [04:49]
BlueMeanie4 debt is the basic thing that gives money substance [04:49]
mircea_popescu BlueMeanie4 this is like saying vishnu is the basic thing giving the world movement. [04:50]
mircea_popescu sure, if you're pre-colonialism indian. [04:50]
BlueMeanie4 no it isn't - quite the opposite using gold or other commodities for money were a feature of primitive societies- you seem to have it backward [04:50]
mircea_popescu hey, what can i tell you. [04:50]
mircea_popescu don't confuse historical accident with meaning. [04:51]
BlueMeanie4 it goes from [04:51]
BlueMeanie4 barter [04:51]
BlueMeanie4 to commodity notes [04:51]
BlueMeanie4 to debt notes [04:51]
mircea_popescu that's how it goes in the book your learned on. this is called didacticism : the sad habit of people to recreate history in terms of their preferred systematic approach. [04:51]
mircea_popescu otherwise, debt notes are older than coins, have been in use in china since forever. [04:52]
BlueMeanie4 this sophistry doesnt work on me. its pretty simple really. if i hold a note that says YOU OWE ME TWENTY EGGS [04:52]
BlueMeanie4 this is worth something right? [04:52]
mircea_popescu depends who i am and what eggs are. [04:52]
BlueMeanie4 its worth at least 20 eggs in the future [04:52]
mircea_popescu plenty of people hold... pirate debt [04:52]
BlueMeanie4 or rather at most 20 eggs [04:52]
mircea_popescu which they bought because they think like you, in spite of me telling them not to. [04:52]
ThickAsThieves goxcoins [04:52]
BlueMeanie4 right so the margin between the actual eggs and my risk of actually getting them is what is the value of the note [04:53]
mircea_popescu now, you're more welcome to get burned a few times if you won't listen and feel entitled to call things sophistry. [04:53]
BlueMeanie4 and thats the value of currency [04:53]
mircea_popescu no. [04:53]
BlueMeanie4 USDs are valuable because people, generally, think that the US govt will repay [04:53]
nubbins` fun story, was over at my folks' house this evening and my dad pulled out some old chartered bank notes [04:53]
mircea_popescu you are making a mistake jpm warned against. allow me to quote the old gentleman. [04:53]
mircea_popescu Untermyer: "Is not commercial credit based primarily upon money or property?" [04:54]
mircea_popescu Morgan: "No sir. The first thing is character." [04:54]
mircea_popescu Untermyer: "Before money or property?" [04:54]
mircea_popescu Morgan: "Before money or property or anything else. Money cannot buy it...because a man I do not trust could not get money from me on all the bonds in Christendom." [04:54]
nubbins` came across a Bank of Montreal $20 bill [04:54]
BlueMeanie4 ThickAsTheives- actually those kind of collection notes have a market [04:54]
mircea_popescu so no, it's not a thing equal to another thing, and they discount each other. [04:54]
mircea_popescu who i am and what eggs are comes before any numerical consideration of value. [04:54]
BlueMeanie4 a 20 egg note is not worth 20 eggs, yes, it's up to the debtor to MAKE them worth 20 eggs. see how this works? [04:54]
mircea_popescu i see how you think it works. [04:55]
mircea_popescu but it doth not work that way, mostly. [04:55]
BlueMeanie4 well i dont really bear the burden of proof, these are facts of financial markets as they exist [04:55]
* mircea_popescu shrugs. [04:55]
mircea_popescu how much are us gold backed debentures, worth cca 1931 ? [04:55]
mircea_popescu "this paper will pay 1000 oz of pure gold" [04:55]
BlueMeanie4 when did we issue those? [04:56]
nubbins` OH NO IT WON'T [04:56]
mircea_popescu yes well. [04:56]
BlueMeanie4 we had silver certs for a while [04:56]
BlueMeanie4 i have a few actually [04:56]
mircea_popescu so look : you can sit in a car, and derive from the experiene of sitting there some idea as to how the car works. [04:56]
mircea_popescu this is fine, but it's a little silly to push that argument of familiarity too far. [04:57]
mircea_popescu these "financial markets" aren't a single thing, and they only work as you describe them when they don't actually work. [04:57]
BlueMeanie4 i find it unfortunate that so many are bogged down with these voodoo economic ideas when they should be building better machinery to deliver real functions [04:58]
mircea_popescu well, to round the circle : i find it unfortunate that so many otherwise intelligent fellows are so fixated on their various habituations that they refuse to adapt and become useful for the future. [04:58]
BlueMeanie4 ok but i fail to see any operable ideas here [04:59]
BlueMeanie4 just suggestions that our current system is flawed in some way [04:59]
mircea_popescu but one point is important : the world you know has failed. this will require a pound of flesh out of everyone involved. whether it comes in the form of the intellectual humiliation where you say "we were wrong and the actual voodoo people at the table" and move on, or the actual physical humiliation that goes with being on the defeated side... [05:00]
mircea_popescu BlueMeanie4 well you gotta read to see the operable ideas. [05:00]
BlueMeanie4 the basic laws of math and economics have not failed nor have they been altered [05:00]
mircea_popescu they have not. just, you never used any math and you never had much to say about economics. [05:01]
mircea_popescu and by you i mostly don't mean you personally. [05:01]

BlueMeanie4 people market those kind of collection notes all the time [05:08]
BlueMeanie4 say you had a million dollars in outstanding collections [05:08]
BlueMeanie4 and I was a collectoins auditor [05:08]
BlueMeanie4 i buy them for 200k [05:08]
mircea_popescu :) [05:08]

X-Rob and I have a nice smokey looking circuit breaker [05:09]
mircea_popescu BlueMeanie4 that'd be because you got some ideas you're trying to fit to observed reality [05:09]

mircea_popescu how financial markets used to work pre bitcoin is purely of academic interest [05:10]

mircea_popescu the funny part being, of course, that they actually DID redesign the whole universe, and everything you imagine was always fixed and the case was purely and shamelessly invented then. then history rewritten to support this inane theory. [05:19]
mircea_popescu we happen to be here to reverse all of it and more, but it's irrelevant which way it goes really. obviously the cock going in hurts about as much as it hurts going out, so to speak. [05:20]
BlueMeanie4 im assuming youre being facetious [05:20]
mircea_popescu in that assumption you'd be wrong. [05:20]

mircea_popescu maximizing the market is not a valid goal of economics any more than maximizing body weight is not a valid goal of medicine. [05:22]
mircea_popescu you're maybe thinking industrial veterinarian. [05:22]
mircea_popescu different story. [05:22]
mircea_popescu the point is for the market to be meaningful not large. [05:22]
BlueMeanie4 economics literally means 'efficiency' [05:22]
mircea_popescu in the sense laundromat literally means laundry robot. [05:23]
nubbins` home ec [05:23]
BlueMeanie4 from Greek oikonomia "household management, thrift," [05:23]
mircea_popescu the thrift is actually the historical point here. economy started its life as an attempt to waste less. [05:24]
BlueMeanie4 well if i want to say take out a put or o call [05:24]
BlueMeanie4 i want the best price [05:24]
BlueMeanie4 and how will i get the best price [05:24]
mircea_popescu your focus on the price to the detriment of the more important considerations is, again, what sunk the system you grew up with. [05:24]

mircea_popescu and so on, [05:25]
BlueMeanie4 this seems to be a tactic you use to avoid addressing either your lack of information on a subject or you willingness to accept various facts [05:25]

mircea_popescu course i can. i can do anything i want. [05:26]
BlueMeanie4 well sure [05:26]
nubbins` "i want the best price" is why all the painted lines are worn off the road here two months after they gets sprayed on. [05:26]
BlueMeanie4 but you look like a cult leader [05:26]
BlueMeanie4 or at least aspiring to be one [05:26]
mircea_popescu BlueMeanie4 if i cared what i looked like i'd actually be a cult leader. [05:26]
mircea_popescu as it is, i'm content to merely look like one. [05:26]
BlueMeanie4 ok. [05:27]
nubbins` "i want the best price" is why there are five wal-marts in my city of 100k people [05:27]
mircea_popescu auctoritas. it's a thing. [05:27]
BlueMeanie4 nubbins you dont want the best price? [05:27]
nubbins` "i want the best price" is the reason why tim horton's is the number one coffee chain in canada [05:27]

BlueMeanie4 ha [05:27]
nubbins` i want the best /value/. [05:27]
mircea_popescu BlueMeanie4 he sells expensive artwork and shit. not a very good angle there. [05:28]
BlueMeanie4 thats what the anti-walmartians argument boils down to. they lack the terms to describe what is bothering them, so instead they are stuck paying for overpriced stuff from 'local' people [05:28]
nubbins` "i want the best price" as you head to the dollar store to buy the fifth set of pliers [05:28]
nubbins` BlueMeanie4 the point flew about six feet above your head [05:28]
mircea_popescu o brother will you have fun here. [05:29]
mircea_popescu i just hope your nerves hold. [05:29]
BlueMeanie4 ok so you dont want marketable financial contracts [05:29]
BlueMeanie4 go tit [05:29]
mircea_popescu not at all. [05:29]
ThickAsThieves i want the "right" price [05:29]
mircea_popescu can you like, not make so many strawmen ?! [05:29]
nubbins` <+BlueMeanie4> thats what the anti-walmartians argument boils down to. they lack the terms to describe what is bothering them, so instead they are stuck paying for overpriced stuff from 'local' people <<< unadulterated gibberish, contains no information [05:29]
mircea_popescu it's fine for them to be marketable, provided they're financial contracts. [05:29]
nubbins` ThickAsThieves not bad [05:29]
mircea_popescu not the cheapo, dysfunctional ersatz the "financial markets" currently use. [05:30]
mircea_popescu every now and again a smarmy da walks into a smart judge's chambers with something about "a standard deal" and the judge tells him there's no such thing as "standard deals" [05:30]
BlueMeanie4 i think there was a degrade in quality for some of these [05:30]
mircea_popescu that's an important point for the da to digest, in his personal evolution from smarmy to useful. [05:30]
BlueMeanie4 i live in a area that was heavily financed by these MBA mortgages [05:30]
mircea_popescu no, there wasn't "a degrade of quality". [05:30]
mircea_popescu just, some shit splurged out of the package. [05:31]
mircea_popescu the package OF SHIT, mind you. [05:31]
BlueMeanie4 its not securitization [05:31]
BlueMeanie4 heres basically what happened [05:31]

assbot AMAZING COMPANY! [05:32]
BlueMeanie4 and these gains were rationally derived mostly [05:32]
BlueMeanie4 but then [05:32]
BlueMeanie4 people got out of hand with it [05:32]
BlueMeanie4 its like bitcoin [05:32]

nubbins` BlueMeanie4: i take raw materials, add value to them, sell them. great, now i've got $x. i can put $x in the hands of walmart and buy 1kg of coffee, or i can put $x in the hands of a business owned by someone who lives here and buy 0.75kg of coffee. sure, with the first option i've got 0.25kg extra coffee, but my city has $(x-y) fewer dollars, where y is an almost-negligible sum. [05:33]
BlueMeanie4 prior to the invention of such, mortgages were very hard to get [05:33]
nubbins` how's this hard to understand? :/ [05:33]
mircea_popescu what happened is that clinton decided niggers will become whites if they get free houses. they drew up legislation to implement this nonsense. [05:33]
mircea_popescu the banks noticed hey, free money! [05:33]
ThickAsThieves shouldnt morgages be hard to get? [05:33]
mircea_popescu two decades later, the whole thing's ruined, as it will never get out of an ever increasing black hole of moral hazard [05:33]
BlueMeanie4 TAT: technically no [05:33]
ThickAsThieves depends on your reputation [05:33]
BlueMeanie4 Mircea, thats not accurate [05:34]
BlueMeanie4 youre taking the gonzo highly critical anti-view [05:34]
mircea_popescu well we all got our stories as to "what really happened". i was merely illustrating the vastness of that area. [05:34]
BlueMeanie4 if i were a mortgage investors [05:35]
BlueMeanie4 i might choose to look at any criteria i want [05:35]
mircea_popescu but regardless of what really happened : there's no way forward. it died, and that's that. bury it and move on, you ain't fixing the corpse. [05:35]
BlueMeanie4 maybe i personally know that lets say romania is a great investment [05:35]
nubbins` sure, and hotels in paris give themselves star-ratings based on the size of the lobby [05:35]
BlueMeanie4 thus I buy undervalued credit risk [05:35]
BlueMeanie4 for romanian mortgages [05:35]
mircea_popescu how would you "personally know". is this stock picking on steroids ? [05:35]
nubbins` this is the day of the unsolicited pm [05:36]
BlueMeanie4 maybe you know someething about it [05:36]
BlueMeanie4 thats how investing works [05:36]
mircea_popescu BlueMeanie4 like what ? like say, omg! like say you stop thinking in terms of "romania" wqhich doesn't exist anyway, and you oinly use because you gotta use something, [05:36]
mircea_popescu and instead traverse the fucking wot according to some criteria that make sense to you and invest accordingly, IN PEOPLE ? [05:36]
mircea_popescu whoa! [05:36]
BlueMeanie4 ok lets say you think chicago is a horrible investment [05:36]
BlueMeanie4 and the property is overvalued [05:36]
mircea_popescu jus' wont let go huh. [05:37]
BlueMeanie4 so you can short the underlying credit devices for the mortgages in chicago [05:37]
mircea_popescu wtf is "chicago" ? [05:37]
nubbins` i think it's some sort of bond [05:37]
BlueMeanie4 and then the price to take out a mortgage for people in chicago goes up [05:37]
nubbins` wait, not bond, band [05:37]
ThickAsThieves <+nubbins`> this is the day of the unsolicited pm /// usagi is back. coincidence? [05:37]
mircea_popescu man. suppose you're the sort of klutz that thinks "chicago is cool". i then knowing you think this sell you a house in "chicago" fgor a price twhich reflects your expectation, but in a location that satisfies my cost structure. [05:37]
mircea_popescu and then we quibble about whether "it was really in chicago" [05:37]
nubbins` ThickAsThieves actually now that you mention it, he was pm'ing me asking for voice earlier when i was afk [05:38]
mircea_popescu well no, it wasn't, because "chicago" as such dun exist. [05:38]
nubbins` no true chicagoan [05:38]
nubbins` !up TheInterocitor [05:38]

mircea_popescu nubbins` i think he pm'd everyone after being devoiced after being all territorial for some god-forsaken reason. [05:39]
mircea_popescu so who're you TheInterocitor ? [05:40]
nubbins` terri... why? [05:40]
BlueMeanie4 if they want to juice up credit markets in chicago, they can [05:40]
mircea_popescu BlueMeanie4 if they can they must. [05:40]
BlueMeanie4 currently the way the markets work are very elitist, [05:40]
ThickAsThieves usagi is just mad that his tongue is poisoned with nonsense [05:40]
BlueMeanie4 there are no choices really [05:40]

mircea_popescu aha. [05:40]
TheInterocitor I read logs here religiously [05:40]
mircea_popescu BlueMeanie4 yes, there are. really. [05:40]
BlueMeanie4 can you buy your friends mortgage? [05:41]
mircea_popescu sure. [05:41]
BlueMeanie4 really? [05:41]
BlueMeanie4 show me how [05:41]
mircea_popescu what's to keep me ? [05:41]
mircea_popescu i sign a gpg contract with him. case closed. [05:41]
BlueMeanie4 oh you can make a private deal [05:41]
BlueMeanie4 but capital requirements are large [05:41]
mircea_popescu all deals are private deals. [05:41]
BlueMeanie4 you need to have entire principal in hand [05:41]
nubbins` what other type of de... ah, too slow [05:41]
TheInterocitor As they should be [05:41]
mircea_popescu lol [05:41]
mircea_popescu BlueMeanie4 why should poor people have something to say about property and the dispositon thereof ? [05:42]
BlueMeanie4 actually what im advocating benefits poor people [05:42]
nubbins` surely you're not suggesting that one should have enough money to purchase the thing one is purchasing [05:42]
mircea_popescu let them say things about their business, making hamburgers or filling tyres or w/e it is. [05:42]
TheInterocitor Usually poor people that have no idea how to manage money ? [05:43]
BlueMeanie4 you dont seem to recognize the power in these sorts of liquid markets [05:43]
mircea_popescu you're right. i recognize there's no power there, just noise. [05:43]
BlueMeanie4 the first and primary benefit is much more capital available [05:43]
mircea_popescu bad capital. [05:43]
BlueMeanie4 how is capital 'bad'? [05:43]
ThickAsThieves a man can live on junk food [05:44]
mircea_popescu lemme tell you how. i build a number of businesses in btc that relied on not dealing with idiots. they're still here, and worth whatever hundred million. [05:44]
ThickAsThieves just not the same life [05:44]
mircea_popescu everyone else tried to build businesses out of allowing idiots in. they all failed [05:44]
mircea_popescu ThickAsThieves had first hand experience, among many others. [05:44]
mircea_popescu so... that way, bad capital. the money of idiots is not useful. [05:44]
ThickAsThieves good point, it was very much a junk food experience too [05:45]
nubbins` it's useful once you sever the connection between the idiot and the money [05:45]
TheInterocitor I trust ThickAsThieves, and Havelock ftw [05:45]
nubbins` if the idiot still has hooks in it, though.. [05:45]
mircea_popescu nubbins` yeah but that's called scamming. [05:45]
* nubbins` nods sagely [05:45]
nubbins` TheInterocitor you trust havelock? [05:45]
nubbins` why? [05:45]
ThickAsThieves age [05:45]
nubbins` ah. [05:45]
TheInterocitor Well havelock hasnt goxxed on me yet [05:45]
ThickAsThieves it's an SEO factor [05:45]
mircea_popescu i was thinking. "not scammed me yet" [05:45]
nubbins` TheInterocitor: sure they have. [05:46]
TheInterocitor ? [05:46]
nubbins` let's see: their website was an insecure piece of shit with massive security holes that literally allowed third parties to drain accounts -- UNTIL LAST SUMMER [05:46]
mircea_popescu but his didn't get drained. [05:46]
nubbins` they let funds delist whenever they please, converting "shares" into "we'll send you a slip of paper" [05:46]
TheInterocitor true [05:46]
mircea_popescu but it never happened to something he owned. [05:46]
TheInterocitor I was unaware of this [05:47]
ThickAsThieves the relist things the opertaors owners delist [05:47]
ThickAsThieves they* [05:47]
TheInterocitor not like I have a substantial amount there [05:47]
nubbins` they sign up the shittest funds in the universe and chew up all the listing fees to unspecified "expenses", ensuring the investorubes don't get any of it [05:47]
nubbins` etc etc [05:47]

mircea_popescu speaking oif such instinct. i dunno if you've ever had dogs, but they're beyond funny when virgin. because while the dog's instinct absolutely drives him to try and mount the bitch, the dog's brain itself doesn't comprehend wtf is happening [05:58]
