feedbot: << Bimbo.Club -- TMSR Log Summary - 11/18/2018 [01:18]
lobbes: << at the suggestion of a few people, I've updated the bot help page to be a little more helpful. Command explanations are a little meatier and an additional likbez added to the end. [03:16]
spyked: <-- hm. feedbot sends rss entries that aren't previously in the db, so it'll spam on the first !1subscribe. so in this case it's better to send me a list of the feeds and I'll add them manually. [07:26]
a111: Logged on 2018-12-08 01:18 lobbes: << this may work there's only ~5 feeds iirc. Question is: would using the !1subscribe method flood the channel with old blog posts, or would it just grab the new ones? [07:26]
spyked: this is a good point tho: the spam-on-first-subscription behaviour sounds like bug and I'll add in the hopper for fixing. [07:27]
BingoBoingo: lol-gaol [08:02]
diana_coman: -> [08:26]
a111: Logged on 2018-12-07 23:01 mircea_popescu: diana_coman ^ lemme know if issues. [08:26]
diana_coman: other than that it looks fine to me [08:26]
mircea_popescu: spyked not so much a bug, traditional behaviour on adding ~new~ feeds, because people generally want to see a few articles from a new source. however, "old" feeds so to speak don't need it. so maybe have just a knob for you, doesn'teven need to be exposed to general public, to make the distinction between normal (hey, new guy added) and exceptional (importing other bot's feeds) regimes. [10:43]
mircea_popescu: Posted byu/mijalis Crypto God | BTC: 21 QC 7 hours ago "Lessons learned - Crypto and Divorce - In January I was a millionaire thanks to BTC, then my wife divorces me and now I have $30,000 AMA" << slash yes ? [10:49]

One of the large group of everyday nitwits that wandered into Bitcoin early on enough so as to end up with a much larger momentary fortune than their limited brainpower could support. After squandering it through the usual means, they prefer to pretend their funciar stupidity is someone else's fault.. [10:49]
a111: Logged on 2018-11-20 18:55 asciilifeform: evidently their extraction engine ~does~ work, or waterfall would have long ago dried [10:49]
mircea_popescu: gotta be shaken out of the space, what. these morons don't belong "in crypto" anymore than they belong in #trilema. hence [10:50]
mircea_popescu: " I was trying to have to pay taxes as far away as possible. So, I decided to wait till New Year's Eve and started liquidating my crypto on January 1st" jesus. [10:52]
BingoBoingo: Derps are going to herp [10:52]
mircea_popescu: see, my fetlife morons are WAY THE FUCK SMARTER, in their bovine idiocy & petriferous lassitude, than these utter fucktards. [10:52]
mircea_popescu: #KillTheMales [10:52]
mircea_popescu: i tell you truthfully, no case of femtarded "oh i make choices, have oppinions blablabla" out of thousands in the same interval infuriate nearly anywhere near the level of a zx2c4 or a l0de or whatever other such example. [10:55]
mircea_popescu: there's about ten thousand fucking miles between and [10:56]
a111: Logged on 2018-12-03 23:37 mircea_popescu: LordMPofTMSR 38M Master 3h "Think of it as an intelligence test. That you're failing." Violet13s 21F sub 3h 'Well whatever you said in the subject box I can't see so I have no idea what " intelligence test " your trying to have me show you. So I'm not really failing, if you want to find out my intelligence you should just message it.' [10:56]
a111: Logged on 2018-12-01 22:13 danielpbarron: that wouldn't be the worst thing [10:56]
BingoBoingo: Indeed there are. [10:58]
mircea_popescu: fresh delivery : --zzz-- 23F sub 40m "How about I bet my boy frend to abduct you and rape you Not even kidding :)" [11:01]
mircea_popescu: what the FUCK "boyfriend" can some 20yo moron from the us have ? they go on fucking dates, and if he sees me crossing the street once he browns his pants slightly ? [11:01]
mircea_popescu: but at least this is mildly entertaining idiocy. [11:02]
BingoBoingo: Sure, the girles might not have much, but they cherish their not that much. The boys hallucinate their optionality out of straight up nothing. [11:02]
mircea_popescu: not even sure that's it. tbh i have nfi what it is. [11:03]
BingoBoingo: I'm probably somewhat off, but it seems there is something almost adorable in the way girls will cherish their articles of poverty into a protective insulating bubble. And generally they can get by on their little whatever. They've got the hardware to hold the cognitive dissonance without completely self destructing. [11:10]
BingoBoingo: The boys... don't have any of that [11:10]
BingoBoingo: The boys are just slowly dying of nothing in particular and lashing out in ways that carefully avoid the masculine imperative to reshape the world for fun and profit [11:11]
BingoBoingo: Some boys stumble into the door of the reshaping the world room here, and intensly nope the fuck out [11:13]
BingoBoingo: Their internal register had already had its redundant bit flipped, Like David in Petrus's story [11:15]
BingoBoingo: They just want their rock to crawl under and die quietly [11:19]
mircea_popescu: possibly it's the actual substance of gender identity, "when girls do x i find it tolerable, when bois do it i find it unbearable" "so you're male ?" [11:22]
BingoBoingo: Kinda like adult woman response to pedophiles [11:36]
mircea_popescu: what's left is the question of whether they do in fact do the same thing, cuz it dun seem so to me. [11:41]
mircea_popescu: o btw, in continuation of "romanians are idiots" discussion, asciilifeform ever read ? [11:43]
feedbot: << Trilema -- How to piss me the fuck off -- a guide [11:46]
mats: i learned today that ciao, from the venetian dialect 'schiavo', means 'i am your slave' [12:50]
mats: vilches, 'new world gold', p. 27 [12:51]
mircea_popescu: there's a lot of this in 16th century courtly southern yurp behaviour [12:52]
mircea_popescu: the transylvanian most common greeting ("servus") literally means "servant" and is a contraction of the upper clas overpolite "i am your most humble servant" expression. [12:53]
mircea_popescu: and by literally i mean, "in latin". [12:53]
mircea_popescu: survived in english and french up to 1800s or so, but usually in formal private epistolary, "i remain..." etc. [12:54]
mats: also learned that the arabic word for eunuch (siqlabi) comes from the ethnic label referring to slavs (saqalibi) [12:54]
mircea_popescu: aha! and in romanian, "harap", literally slave, transliterates "arab". [12:55]
mats: frankopan, 'the silk roads' (p. 118) [12:55]
mats: astonished by how early successes of teh venetians and rus, were singularly driven by willingness to sell future generations of their enemies, neighbors, children into captivity, and later, protection rackets [12:58]
mats: according to frankopan, anyway. [12:58]
mats: to expound on that more, i'm not able to readily wrap my brain around how keeping slaves as property can be a +ev activity with low variance [13:30]
mats: keeping slaves in usa was problematic in the antebellum period, due to the increasingly common, unpredictable and malignant uprisings [13:32]
mats: ready availability of farm implements and fertilizers enable armed rebellions [13:39]
mircea_popescu: mats they kept blacks. [17:03]
mircea_popescu: just because ~blacks~ are demographically worthless does not mean slavery is a -ev activity. [17:03]
mircea_popescu: many things can ONLY be done by slave labour. such as, making a film worth watching. or running a hospital, or a ship at sea, etc. [17:04]
mats: is this second bit a political or economic argument [19:21]
mats: slaves at sea are a physical security nightmare [19:21]
mats: perhaps a definition of terms is in order - i consider slavery the keeping of humans as property, distinct from slavery in teh manner of the old testament, indentured servitude with timed expiry, 'jubilee' [19:25]
mircea_popescu: slavery is "do what you're fucking told to do". the only available alternative is "figure out something for you to do". [21:51]
mircea_popescu: humans generally work terribly poorly on the 2nd perspective. [21:51]
mircea_popescu: in any case, the best possible thing you can be is property. the alternative is being a liability. [21:53]
mircea_popescu: contrary to what overexicted emotards like to pretend, there ~isn't~ a third. [21:53]
mircea_popescu: discussion very much apropos. there's either domestic slave, or domestic liability. "wife" "girlfriend" "significant other" bla bla bla sad if transparent attempts at confounding the issue through labels. "oh, it's not directly evident if i mean she's the head of the household or the drain in the balance sheet". "no, actually, i think i can tell". [21:55]
a111: Logged on 2018-11-26 23:32 mircea_popescu: to restate in these terms, "two young males, fractional '''girlfriend''' they'd have to pay to get rid of, living with parents, hoping to be one day paid by inca for the useless '''work''' they want to do" etc. [21:55]
mircea_popescu: when's the last time you ever heard anyone ask a sailor/doctor/starlet/best grip/screenwriter/whatever what ~they~ would want to do ? [21:56]
mats: its normal for lieutenants to be asked whether they're looking to go command track, staff what their top 3 stations are ncos can volunteer for special billets like recruiting, babysitting privates as instructors, embassy duty, going through various schools under jsoc, ... [23:32]
mats: doctors are asked to decide what their specialization will be, what grants they are looking to pursue in order to undertake some research [23:33]
mats: i understand the pedagogical purpose of what you're saying [23:34]
mats: if you're actually good at what you do, you can have some limited control over decisions that affect you [23:36]
