jurov at least javascript *must* be wrapped in cdata [00:00]
pankkake or, don't put javascript in html ;) [00:00]
nubbins` nah [00:00]
nubbins` just wrap it in [00:00]
nubbins` the browser will parse it, and you don't break W3C compliance [00:01]
kakobrekla fuck compilance [00:01]
pankkake yes, that's the way javascript should be included: [00:01]
nubbins` "fuck compliance" is the general mantra, yes [00:01]
pankkake kakobrekla: that's the html5 spirit! [00:01]
kakobrekla hehe [00:01]
nubbins` it's also the html 4.01 spirit [00:01]
nubbins` the IE 1-10 spirit [00:02]
nubbins` etc [00:02]
pankkake no, html5 basically admits "devs can't write correct html, so we are going to spec how browsers should react to bad stuff" [00:02]
kakobrekla when i see "this page has been validated" i leave it immediately [00:02]
kakobrekla its most prolly scam. [00:02]
nubbins` heh [00:02]
jurov what? you mean no? [00:02]
nubbins` making pages w3c compliant is suck a fucking pain in the hole [00:03]
nubbins` for no measurable benefit [00:03]
kakobrekla zactly. [00:03]
nubbins` *such [00:03]
pankkake eh, one of my websites is XHTML 1.1 compliant [00:03]
kakobrekla which translates to only idiots do it [00:03]
pankkake that's some hardcore stuff [00:03]
pankkake jurov: no, that was the joke :p [00:04]
nubbins` hmm, only 157 compliance errors on [00:04]
nubbins` not bad [00:04]
pankkake it probably just needs the html5 doctype [00:04]
nubbins` nod [00:05]
pankkake unless it uses [00:05]
nubbins` nah there's no doctype specified [00:05]
pankkake which would actually fit right in here [00:05]
nubbins` just specifying one would probably get rid of all 157 errors [00:05]
jurov i'm using xml templates, somewhere there in between was the reason i can't just comment everything out [00:05]
pankkake that's what I meant [00:05]
nubbins` xslt [00:06]
nubbins` speaking of nightmares... [00:06]
benkay it's not that dev's can't in2 html, it's that once a person starts calling themselves a 'dev' they generally have left html behind because the dom is a stateful nightmare to program for [00:06]
benkay back buttons [00:07]
benkay all the things [00:07]
nubbins` fuck the back button [00:07]
pankkake fuck web applications [00:07]
benkay yeah i had a conversation recently where the conclusion was 'we no ams use back button' [00:07]
pankkake it's for documents [00:07]
nubbins` at my last job, there was at least one asshole on each project who would ask "can we just disable the browser's back button?" [00:07]
nubbins` "well that depends, can i just walk into your house and fuck your wife?" [00:08]
benkay too bad web applications are the only way to develop affordably in a way that most mobile browsers can access surfaced data [00:08]
KRS1 i hate web applications i'm a systems guy [00:09]
nubbins` i did web apps for 5 years and then ragequit [00:09]
benkay ya well people gotta derp on buttons and see pretty graphs [00:09]
KRS1 i can see why nubbins` [00:09]
nubbins` nod [00:09]
nubbins` i'll never do it again [00:09]
pankkake I am trying to branch out of web applications [00:09]
pankkake not many people want to pay me to write CLI applications though! [00:09]
kakobrekla you are all in a webapp [00:09]
kakobrekla called webchat for freenode [00:10]
KRS1 pankkake not much of a choice [00:10]
pankkake ban webchat [00:10]
pankkake worst invention ever [00:10]
nubbins` heh [00:10]
nubbins` pankkake, there's plenty of coding to be done that's not web apps and not CLI [00:10]
pankkake actually, at some point, I started projects that didn't even have a CLI [00:10]
pankkake you had to run the interpreter and import the lib [00:10]
nubbins` web services don't have a cli [00:10]
kakobrekla i think some do [00:11]
pankkake true. that's what I was mostly doing with the webby stuff [00:11]
nubbins` well sure, but they're not really used that way in real life [00:11]
nubbins` just parsed by code [00:11]
nubbins` in general usage, web services don't have an I of any type, CL or otherwise [00:12]
kakobrekla yeah [00:13]
kakobrekla more sites could be lik [00:13]
nubbins` fun [00:13]
kakobrekla anyone wants to do bitbet console version :) [00:14]
pankkake NOPE: [00:14]
kakobrekla stop browsing with a potato [00:15]
pankkake kakobrekla: well I do write CLI interfaces to talk to websites [00:15]
pankkake especially the bad ones [00:15]
kakobrekla :D [00:15]
kakobrekla i think it would be better if its inbrowser faked cli [00:15]

nubbins` big clunky RPG IV programs [00:19]
nubbins` developed in the 80s [00:19]
jspiros I am in the same position as pankkake, I am tired of webdev and wish people would pay me to write CLI/TUI apps [00:20]
nubbins` "hit F12... now C... now 3... Tab twice... F2 that..." [00:20]
jspiros though I would be happy writing GUI apps too, for desktops; I'm just tired of mobile or web as the primary options [00:20]

deadweasel mircea_popescu: linkrot got you down? [00:29]
nubbins` from what i can gather, the two moms got on welfare and the state wants the cup-cummer to repay $6k worth of welfare cheques [00:29]
* kyle_torpey ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:30]
pankkake yes, but the mom shouldn't have declared a father [00:30]
nubbins` she probably had to in order to collect welfare [00:31]
nubbins` "there is no father" "where's the letter from your doctor?" [00:31]
nubbins` anyway, gotta run [00:31]

the20year2 Wasn't the average warming only like 1.4c? [04:41]

mircea_popescu the20year2 there's no difference is there. [04:41]
the20year2 and that's what the 'evil conspiracy theorists' have been saying for 4 years, and the media painted them as idiots and crazy [04:42]
the20year2 I've had some somewhat smart people calling me names because I've stated more than once that a 100 year observation window isn't enough to build climate models [04:42]
mircea_popescu especially if what you do is you take that window, extrapolate a history based on it, and then pretend like the new dataset is usable to extrapolate a future evolution. [04:43]

benkay and then get real serious about numbers of variables and extrapolations and observation windows briefly before saying 'but this is all esoteric shit that bogs one down in details when the more important point is that they cannot possibly say what they say with any justification' [04:45]

mircea_popescu "The cofounder (forensick) left the company and told me he has not seen any bitcoins from the IPO and moreover was left with some outstanding debt by Markus Weiler (dotcoin)." [16:28]
mircea_popescu no srsly, you people keep doing this shit. [16:29]
mircea_popescu stop doing it. it is stupid. [16:29]
mircea_popescu everyone is like insane, feels this irresistible urge to shill for the first scammer that comes by with honeyed lips. [16:30]
mircea_popescu it's like virgin highschooler kids getting married at 17 to support some random ho. [16:31]
mircea_popescu jurov there you go. [16:31]
jurov you mean i'm shilling for forensick? [16:32]
mircea_popescu no. [16:33]
mircea_popescu i mean, take this guy. he becomes a cofounder right ? [16:33]
mircea_popescu why ? [16:33]
mircea_popescu well... cause someone was "being professional". herp. [16:33]
jurov yes, he appeared toward me as one [16:33]
mircea_popescu and then... his name is used there, right ? [16:33]
mircea_popescu and then... it all blows up, and it turns pout he was in fact no cofounder. [16:33]
mircea_popescu he was just... an idiot. [16:33]
* KRS1 Rumpled Foreskin. [16:33]

mircea_popescu with nothing better to do with his time, with no idea what a name is and how it works, with nothing at all. [16:34]
mircea_popescu i could name names of people doing exactly the same, with fake miners, with bs of all sorts. i won't. [16:34]
KRS1 How elegant, artful..the fuck? Just give me some fucking porn, ozbot. [16:34]
mircea_popescu point remains, this is being done too fucking often. [16:34]
mircea_popescu stop thinking that words matter. someone calling you a cofounder and you're all tickled pink ? [16:34]
mircea_popescu stop enabling fraud. [16:34]
KRS1 Some want to feel important, even if they are making the same buck. [16:35]
mircea_popescu this happens to be the definition of idiocy. [16:35]
mircea_popescu you are better off with two friends than with two hundred "friends" who mostly come by to steal things from your house and take bank loans with copies of your id they obtained while you weren't looking. [16:36]

jurov (back in september) [16:36]
mircea_popescu jurov suppose one day you're walking down the street and some guy offers you a joint. do you take it or do you figure "hey, a fuckwit i never saw before is trying to get me drugged up" ? [16:37]

KRS1 Co-Assistant. [16:38]
jurov honestly, it depends on my frame of mind. i can be incredibly stupid in exactly the wrong moment [16:38]
mircea_popescu so that's what i do. i don't deal with people i don't know. i test. i build histories. i check histories. [16:38]
mircea_popescu i review references. [16:38]
mircea_popescu what, some guy that has no wot, no presence, that i don't know suddenly has an idea ? suddenly can be a ceo ? [16:39]
mircea_popescu no, he cant. [16:39]
mircea_popescu look at neobee for an instructive example. [16:39]
mircea_popescu we're not equal, even if we can type the same strings in a box they still aren't the same strings. depends whose name signs on them. we're not equal, even if two people have "the same idea", in one head it's an idea, in another head it's nothing. [16:40]

jurov blogging... i tried to write something and it felt too stupid immediately the next day [17:22]

* elgrecoFL (Jezzz@unaffiliated/elgrecofl) has joined #bitcoin-assets [17:25]
nubbins` well the question is why this isn't in court already [17:25]
nubbins` "The reason being we have an obligation to protect our customers, and to minimise the opportunity for financial crime. However, following feedback, we are immediately updating guidance to our customer facing staff to reiterate that it is not mandatory for customers to provide documentary evidence for large cash withdrawals, and on its own, failure to show evidence is not a reason to refuse a [17:26]
nubbins` withdrawal. We are writing to apologise to any customer who has been given incorrect information and inconvenienced." [17:26]
nubbins` well [17:26]
mircea_popescu nubbins` it's not in court because a) the court is a government subsidiary, and the government knows the bank is out of capital. [17:29]
mircea_popescu it'd be an awkward way to push its bankruptcy [17:29]
nubbins` nod [17:29]
mircea_popescu also because b) the law is so written so that the government and its subsidiaries are immune from law, [17:29]
nubbins` Mr Cotton has likely been widthdrawing #3k per day since that incident [17:29]
mircea_popescu and so no third party could in fact use the court of the government against the bank of the government. [17:30]
nubbins` i wonder when they'll tell him he can't anymore [17:30]
nubbins` also, i've decided that # is a suitable way to denote GBP on a US keyboard [17:31]

nubbins` [18:23]
mircea_popescu it comes from 5000 years of experience iwth the notion that "people yu don't know will likely rape you", something which comes full circle with the earlier discussion re cryptoscams. [18:23]

mircea_popescu Mats_cd03 i think a nuke will definitely be used too, whether in x time or not notwithstanding. [19:30]

cads my study is mostly math [19:49]
cads but also some econ and finance [19:49]
mircea_popescu anyway you can apply some of that study to bitcoin finance for great justice ? [19:50]
cads hehe, it would be neat to develop some pricing models when I learn that math [19:50]

mircea_popescu cads seriously now : it's a vast field, it's by far the most important thing happening on planet earth for now, the majority of people "involved" are carpenters by trade, if not professional welfare leeches. [19:51]
mircea_popescu great time to do some foundational work. [19:51]
asciilifeform best thing is, any hypothesis in the field is immediately testable, all you need is a computer. [19:52]

mircea_popescu also publish it somewhere. [19:53]

* Dimsler ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [19:56]
jurov people already adapted models? who? where? [19:59]
benkay well the mpoe bot for one but i dunno if that counts for people [19:59]
assbot [HAVELOCK] [KCIM] [PAID] 2.17250000 BTC to 86`900 shares, 2500 satoshi per share [20:00]
jurov i mean, outside of that. and it's still far from profitable (for bondholders) [20:00]
benkay it's profitable for the bondholders who insist on a good rate [20:01]
mircea_popescu it's complicated [20:01]
benkay it's a good fleecing of those who're willing to settle for .45 or whatever it was hovering at before the last hammering [20:01]
jurov benkay did you see the stats? [20:01]
benkay yeah stats assume you're invested each month [20:02]
benkay right? unless i misread that spreadsheet [20:02]
jurov so your investor would read from crystal ball "withdraw in march and november" [20:03]
benkay no no no [20:03]
benkay just don't chase rate around. leave bond deposit requested premium nice and high. forego interest during periods of low interest, capture the high interest periods after the bot gets hammered in a given month. [20:04]
mircea_popescu the stats as reported are overall, and moreover they misrepresent data in a sort of implicit leveraging [20:04]
mircea_popescu (the sums not used even if available each month are not reported) [20:04]
jurov that would work if the bonds did not eat themselves. [20:05]
jurov you can ask 30% mpbor, but you never actually get it [20:05]
jurov and end up actually worse in total than people who asked 4% [20:05]
mircea_popescu how worse ? [20:06]
jurov if you ask 4% , you can get 4% every month compounded while btc rate is stable [20:07]
jurov if you ask 30% then you get nothing while btc rate si stable [20:07]
jurov and when there is loss you cover it alike with all the other bonds [20:07]
mircea_popescu well, unless mpoe makes 25% profit on a stable month and there's nobody else there, in which case you walk away with 25% [20:08]
jurov *IF* your bond gets used. [20:08]
Apocalyptic I still don't get wtf Hearn is doing at the foundation's head position [20:08]
mircea_popescu Apocalyptic nobody honest wanted the job ? [20:09]
mircea_popescu jurov well yes, it's a longshot. [20:09]
benkay chasing return on btc is a great way to loose btc [20:09]
benkay har arguably the best thing to do with 100 btc is put it on deposit as a bond with MPOE at like 50% [20:09]
benkay you won't make any money, but you won't lose a terrible lot either [20:10]
jurov 20% (or dunno how much it was) isn't terrible lot? [20:10]
mircea_popescu his theory is that when shtf and bonds get eaten up you may lose. [20:10]
mircea_popescu however, the capital needs as a volume of btc and the losses as a % are not necessarily correlated too well. [20:11]
mircea_popescu at least imo [20:11]
jurov actually, because if you ask 50%, then EVERYONE, even people who asked 4% will get it [20:11]
jurov thus, loss is practically guaranteed [20:11]
mircea_popescu if you get touched. yes. [20:11]
mircea_popescu i stil ldon't see how is loss guaranteed ? [20:11]
benkay i was halfway joking jurov [20:11]
jurov yes, that case [20:11]
benkay suggesting that you wouldn't get touched at that rate [20:12]
mircea_popescu jurov basically you seem to me to proceed on the theory that "large capital needs" necessarily means "mpoe makes a loss". this seems baseless. [20:12]
benkay ^^ [20:12]
jurov i rather would like to see how you can get touched at that rate and *not* end up with a loss. [20:12]
jurov this requires your bond be bigger than sum of all the others [20:13]
mircea_popescu jurov let's model things for a second. [20:13]
mircea_popescu bonds : 10 btc at 10%, 40 btc at 15%, 10 btc at 50% [20:13]
mircea_popescu 1st month : 5 btc profit, 15 btc capital needed. [20:13]
mircea_popescu 10 gets 1.5, 40 gets .75, the remainder 2.75 goes to shareholders. [20:14]
mircea_popescu right ? [20:14]
jurov won't the 40 get 15% too? [20:14]
mircea_popescu yes, 15% on 5 btc [20:14]
jurov ok. i'm following. [20:15]
mircea_popescu 2nd month : 150 btc profit, 55 btc capital needed. [20:15]
mircea_popescu 10 gets 5, 40 gets 20, 10 gets 2.5 [20:15]
mircea_popescu shareholders get 122.5 btc [20:15]
jurov moment... did mpoe ever made 3x needed capital? [20:15]
mircea_popescu i don't know right off, but are you proposing that two years of mpoe covers the entire universe of possibilities, and nothing new will ever happen in the future ? [20:16]
jurov my opinion is that it's extremely unlikely [20:16]
mircea_popescu and that's fine. [20:16]
* CheckDavid (~david@unaffiliated/checkdavid) has joined #bitcoin-assets [20:17]
mircea_popescu moving on : 3rd month. 30 btc loss, 51 btc capital. [20:17]
mircea_popescu 10 loses 5.9, 40 loses 23.5, 10 loses .59 [20:17]
jurov the 30btc loss already includes 25.5 btc paid as premium? [20:18]
Apocalyptic pankkake, you said earlier the payment protocol looks fine to you, did you know Hearn pushes for SSL to be part of it with all the centralized cert authority issues it implies ? [20:18]
mircea_popescu jurov no, these are net [20:18]
mircea_popescu Apocalyptic he said it looks fine ?! [20:19]
Apocalyptic yeah, let me dig that up [20:19]
pankkake I said it's OK except for the reliance on CAs :) [20:19]
mircea_popescu el sueno de la razon... [20:20]
Apocalyptic oh, missed the except part then := [20:20]
mircea_popescu how is it ok even without cas. [20:20]
pankkake I just see it as a better way to do [20:20]
jurov so then the total loss attributed to bonds is 55.5 BTC... rather extreme example [20:20]
Apocalyptic mircea has a point here [20:20]
mircea_popescu jurov yes, the point of modelling is to go through the extremes [20:21]
mircea_popescu pankkake what is your definition of "better way" ? like, instead of a woman telling you when she's ready to fuck, she wears a collar sold in a shop which beeps ? [20:23]
mircea_popescu is this a better way to fuck, iyo ? [20:23]
mircea_popescu "because this way the woman can't lie about when she feels like getting laid" [20:24]
mircea_popescu as if this is a problem that actually needs a solution at any point. [20:24]
pankkake well women should wear collars, but I disagree on the collar implementation [20:24]
mircea_popescu suppose you let them pick ? [20:25]
mircea_popescu unless you're an impotent fuckwit with delusions of self-importance who imagines that if he's eaten catered food under enough cheap false ceilings he now has something to say on this - or any other - topic. [20:25]
mircea_popescu and that periphrase does not only name mike hearn, even if it fits him so well. in fact, there's a legion of this sort of scum floating about. [20:26]
Apocalyptic part of the beauty of the bitcoin protocol resides in how simple it is to just have an address and like mircea said this is a solution to a non-problem [20:26]
mircea_popescu they're the people we wish to kill, and they're the reason we even work with bitcoin in the first place [20:26]
mircea_popescu so they may be killed. [20:26]
pankkake it doesn't change the bitcoin protocol though [20:26]
pankkake it's just a wallet feature [20:27]
Dimsler well the problem with the main fiat economies is usury [20:27]
mircea_popescu so they claim. [20:27]
mircea_popescu they didn't change the term of service, either [20:27]
mircea_popescu you just can't take your own money out of your own bank anymore, is all. [20:27]
Apocalyptic what would be interesting to know is that if at some point they would go for it, how widely accepted would be a fork that preserves the actual model [20:27]
mircea_popescu Apocalyptic extremely widely accepted. here's a secret of polychinelle : starting with about 6.0, the versions of bitcoin fromn the so called "dev team" have just about zero support. [20:28]
mircea_popescu sure, reddit uses them. reddit has no bitcoin. [20:28]
mircea_popescu what's worse, reddit has no brain. [20:28]
Dimsler most bitcoiners have no brain [20:28]
mircea_popescu people with no money and no brains don't count in this world. [20:28]
Apocalyptic in other terms, how many people woud actual not blindly run to to update because they heard they should [20:28]
Dimsler the early bitcoiners are some really aweful people [20:29]
Apocalyptic Dimsler, that makes me worried [20:29]
mircea_popescu Apocalyptic pretty much everyone that knows me won't, for one. [20:29]
Dimsler why they are being replaced with real developers [20:29]
Apocalyptic mircea, one can hope :) [20:29]

mircea_popescu myeah. [20:29]
Dimsler the bitcoiner of 2012-2013 is hopefully going to disappear with the tier 2 development [20:29]
mircea_popescu Dimsler the idea is to replace institutionalised investors with mpex, not to shittify bitcoin by having it look more like something dimon might easily wrap his head around. [20:30]
pankkake tier 2 development? [20:30]
mircea_popescu ya, wut ?! 2012 is tier 3 already. [20:30]
pankkake tiers? [20:30]
mircea_popescu well w/e, i presume he means waves. [20:30]

jurov um, so we modelled the mpoe extremes and claim problem solved? [20:30]
mircea_popescu jurov i was waiting for you to ok it as i had a 4th month [20:31]
jurov ah ok [20:31]
jurov er.. [20:31]
mircea_popescu 4th month : profit 3 btc, capital 60 btc. [20:31]
mircea_popescu 10 gets .5, 40 gets 2, 10 gets .5 [20:31]
Dimsler i'm hoping on some of the eastern european development teams push multi sig and colored coins [20:31]
mircea_popescu again, net. on paper in fact they get 5 btc, of which 4.5 btc comes out of their capital, so they are left with 5.5 on the books, [20:32]
mircea_popescu and get paid 5 btc in cash [20:32]
Dimsler they've already grew btc-e on pure anonymininty [20:32]
mircea_popescu Dimsler you're way behind on your reading. [20:32]
mircea_popescu colored coins died in 2012. [20:32]

mircea_popescu [20:32]
ozbot Why I nixed p2p, colored coins and all that jazz pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu. [20:32]
mircea_popescu there, a year ago almost to the day [20:32]
Dimsler i've read a bit about this [20:32]
Dimsler in essence its not specifically coloured coins [20:33]
Dimsler but what about the issuance of an asset [20:33]
Dimsler based on a blockchain address [20:33]
Dimsler as proof of stake [20:33]
mircea_popescu issuance of assets is not something that should ever be public facing. [20:33]
* daybyter has quit (Quit: Konversation terminated!) [20:33]
mircea_popescu let the prospective issuer get the ok of someone who knows what the fuck they're talking about first. [20:33]
asciilifeform just for the record, there is the (so far entirely theoretical) possibility of movement in the other direction [20:34]
asciilifeform e.g. crypto-blind block chain, etc. [20:34]
mircea_popescu how you mean ? [20:34]
mircea_popescu jurov now, these are more or less the edges of the space. [20:35]
mircea_popescu is your argument that the average provably converges away from the center ? [20:35]
asciilifeform the various schemes for mathematically-founded anonymity [20:35]
mircea_popescu but as a game-theoretic construct i mean [20:35]
jurov moment, all considered, then 30 btc gets first removed from the principals [20:36]
asciilifeform (example of 'zerocoin' etc) [20:36]
jurov 10 pays 5 btc, 40 pays 20 btc, 10 pays 5 [20:38]
mircea_popescu right. [20:38]
jurov and then they receive the interest with the same amounts [20:39]
mircea_popescu well 0.5 2 .5 ya [20:39]
jurov ok, let's go on [20:39]
mircea_popescu that'd be all. [20:40]
mircea_popescu these are the edges pretty much [20:40]
jurov now, if needed capital is < 50btc, my 50% bond sits unused [20:41]
mircea_popescu yup [20:42]
jurov if it's >= 60 then it gets same result as all the other bonds [20:42]
mircea_popescu yup [20:42]
jurov the problem is, there seems to be a correlation between loss and exhaustion of bondholders' capital [20:43]
jurov we don't have any good sample [20:43]
mircea_popescu if you like math, one thing you can do is define this game as a GM construct and play a billion rounds [20:43]
mircea_popescu course the results will be dubious on the face, cause of possible bias, but still, it's research. [20:43]
jurov one would have to simulate the players, too. they do trade options more when the rate is volatile, but how much more? [20:44]
mircea_popescu hence the bias. [20:44]
mircea_popescu moreover, how likely are they to be right ? [20:44]
mircea_popescu if they are wrong and trade a lot that doesn't hurt the bonds. [20:44]
jurov if i buy a call and am wrong, mpoe gets only up to the price i paid [20:45]
jurov but if i'm right, i can get anything [20:45]
mircea_popescu well yes, this is the story of options. [20:45]

benkay well i've gone and confused myself again. mircea_popescu jurov: the statements for say, december 2012 says that the MPBOR for dec 28-jan 25 is 4.99, but thats the rate paid against the december capital. similarly, the jan statement says that the MPBOR for jan26-feb22 will be 9.99 but i'm reading the reports to say that premium was charged for capital borrowed over the course of jan. [21:26]
benkay any clarification on what i'm not understanding today would be much appreciated [21:27]
benkay also thestringpuller i know you follow mpbor, if you have any ideas about what i'm missing it'd be great to straighten out [21:28]

kakobrekla that translates to slovene too, only 'stable' also means 'fucked up' [22:02]
asciilifeform for some odd reason, nobody ever gets this lucky in meatspace casino. [22:02]
nubbins` are casinos provably fair with 1% house edge, tho? [22:03]
nubbins` well. "provably". [22:03]
nubbins` but either way, from what i understand, the setup of jd lends itself to wild swings of luck, both good and bad [22:04]
