shinohai: For those that would rather view above in text: [16:19]
Framedragger: o nice! [16:19]
Framedragger: (granted, my html thing uses js to render close-to-original pdf, which is not really needed) [16:19]
mircea_popescu: Framedragger aka, DSA is a joke ? [16:20]
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: yes, and no, not super duper original indeed, but nice to see something (closer to) empirical :) [16:21]

Framedragger: (been trying to steal time from afk stuff to read on useful things so brain does not go dead. it's.. slow) [16:21]

Framedragger: wait shouldn't it be the inverse of that?? [16:23]
mircea_popescu: should it ? [16:24]
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: ..unless you are implying that the republic stimulated results such as this, making life insufferable for nsa, idiots and the like [16:25]

shinohai: <<< lulzy coindesk survey [20:44]
mircea_popescu: i thought the libertards established that "online polls aren't scientific" given that they actually reflect the electoral reality rather than their preferred fiction. [20:45]
mircea_popescu: "The growing interest in Ethereum has been one of the most significant blockchain technology developments of 2016." [20:46]
mircea_popescu: ok that's good enough. such meta. [20:46]
shinohai: xD [20:46]
mircea_popescu: in other news, sex is fucking great. [20:47]
trinque: isn't it though? [20:51]
mircea_popescu: yeah. [20:51]
mircea_popescu: even after all these years. [20:51]
shinohai: This is true, but requires further research. Will report back in when I return from Miami. [20:51]
* trinque reread the myth of consent just now, appropriately enough. [20:52]
mircea_popescu: i thought you lived in miami [20:52]
shinohai: Nope, I live near thestringpuller [20:52]
trinque: struck me this time through how far "with-feeling" is from the commonly understood "definition" [20:52]
mircea_popescu: what was that, georgia ? [20:52]
shinohai: Yup, near Atlanta [20:53]
mircea_popescu: pack some warm socks [20:53]
mircea_popescu: florida is chilly this time of year. [20:53]
mircea_popescu: comparatively speakinfg [20:53]
* trinque was born in the tampa area [20:54]
trinque: what a shithole that's become [20:54]
mircea_popescu: no more sorority sluts ? [20:54]
mircea_popescu: used to be the ~capital of sororisluttery. [20:54]
trinque: fat wigger descendents of bartenders and strippers [20:54]
mircea_popescu: ah, ou sont l'90s d'antan. [20:54]
mircea_popescu: trinque i just re-read it myself. great read. [21:00]
trinque: brings to mind a conversation had with my lady friend, gist of which is that "modern angry feminist" in the states is nothing more than a (deeply resented) survival move, reacting to the complete lack of sane males in this country. [21:07]
mircea_popescu: ahahaha this is epic [21:09]
mircea_popescu: << just hit mod queue. [21:09]
trinque: reuter's recent headline after the weekend was something like "Failure to Implode" [21:11]
mircea_popescu: lol [21:11]
trinque: uh uh he's failing to fail is all, look away! [21:11]
mircea_popescu: In a recent interview, Obama’s 2008 opponent, John McCain marveled at his own challenges when trying to connect with African American voters. “I didn’t get a single vote in the whole inner city of Philadelphia,” the Arizona GOP senator told POLITICO. “I thought maybe they could find one.” << pretty lulzy. [21:14]
mircea_popescu: Obama said. “So my suggestion would be go out there and try to win the election. If Mr. Trump is up 10 or 15 points on Election Day and ends up losing, then maybe he can raise some questions.” << even better. lol. [21:16]
trinque: diebold unhappened eh? [21:18]
mircea_popescu: bitcoin is backed by lulz and drama and the us election is apparently made of lulz, and drama. [21:18]
mircea_popescu: anyway, he apparently killed it with that debate, got a 15% surge in support. [21:19]
trinque: "I will put her in prison" could only be trumped by "I will flog her on national TV" [21:20]
mircea_popescu: i dun think anyone really wants to see her old ass educated. [21:20]
* trinque oinks in agreement [21:21]
mircea_popescu: "Clinton’s performance was less-than-stellar, which may be just a meaner way of saying it was good as we ever could have expected. She has this tendency to look very self-satisfied after delivering a zinger that’s clearly been crafted by someone else in Brooklyn and then tested on voters in a fish tank. It’s grating." << to put it charitably. [21:23]
mircea_popescu: in unrelated but equally uninteresting news, the argentine natl bank introduced 500 peso notes, lifting the maximum bill from its ~6 dollar value to heights incomprehensible by the locals. (who think themselves rich and don't ever have 30 dollars in cash in their hands, like ever). [21:27]
ben_vulpes: heh oh that's nice [21:27]
ben_vulpes: the six dollar bills were hilaribad [21:27]
mircea_popescu: there's larger denominations coming out. this is just a step in a wider plan to liquidate the country. for rather many years, the socialist government pumped pesos into the pockets of its clientele, a bunch of lice concentrated around the capital. [21:28]
mircea_popescu: having absoluterly nothing to do with it, because they're literally lice, not people, they pumped up real estate values and "educated" their kids in the sense of giving them very us-like diplomas in cutting up cardboard. [21:28]
mircea_popescu: (literally, this, and i've documented it. the "architecture" university consists of building cardboard boxes. the "social sciences" university consists of painting posters by hand. etc etc, all education here is paper and glue handicrafts like for mongoloids. which their kids ACTUALLY ARE, if i see another 20something girl walking hand in hand WITH HER FUCKING MOTHER im burning the place down. only country where it's social a [21:30]
mircea_popescu: cceptable for teenage females to dress 11 and behave 7.) [21:30]
ben_vulpes: well now i expect all of ba to burn tomorrow [21:30]
mircea_popescu: to preserve the insanely inflated real estate values (really, 1k to 1.5k per square meter, ie 5x san francisco and the amenties are eastern europe in the 1990s level, their windows whistle in the wind, there's no gas heaters anywhere etc etc) they choked the money supply [21:31]
ben_vulpes: you cover what, 30km/day? [21:31]
ben_vulpes: no way you don't see the handholding tomorrow. [21:31]
mircea_popescu: so the battle is pretty simple : a bunch of fucktarded "middle class" idiots in their own mind, concentrated in buenos aires, expecting their "real estate" to sell for 200k usd per dingy appartnment unfit for the ghetto and their educations to bring serious payola in govt jobs [21:31]
mircea_popescu: who voted scioli and lost [21:32]
mircea_popescu: versus a bunch of ambitious industrialists, stuck outside and who want to utterly ruin the other group. [21:32]
mircea_popescu: macri is doing everything to help them. it'll be a bloodbath, and it'll be a bloodbath i'll enjoy. [21:32]
mircea_popescu: ni una menos indeed. ni una menos without a cock in her mouth. [21:32]
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes for srs. [21:32]
asciilifeform: plox to burn here next [21:32]
asciilifeform: it is worse. [21:33]
asciilifeform: well, my other here [21:33]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform found a great icecream place to replace the other one. so yeah, it's great. for me. [21:33]
asciilifeform: mmmm [21:33]
mircea_popescu: it'll be hell for them, and i intend to piss gasoline on faces. [21:33]
asciilifeform: dun burn it yet, i'd like to eat there when i fly the crate in [21:34]
mircea_popescu: ima build a line of hookers chained to poles the whole length of avenida del libertador yet. [21:35]
ben_vulpes: til mircea_popescu pisses gasoline [21:35]
ben_vulpes: the man's metabolism never ceases to amaze [21:35]
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes depends on the grade of tuica i imbibe. [21:35]
ben_vulpes: that's ethanol, neh/ [21:35]
mircea_popescu: i can even piss kerosene. [21:35]
ben_vulpes: hyuu [21:35]
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: for rocket fueling depot [21:35]
asciilifeform: fractional pisstillation [21:36]
mircea_popescu: lmao [21:36]
ben_vulpes: haw [21:36]
mod6: <+ben_vulpes> the man's metabolism never ceases to amaze << i lel'd. [21:47]
mod6: and i continue to lel at the documented state of the "architecture" univeristy. [21:48]
mircea_popescu: and the shitheads actually expect to get jobs. [21:49]
mircea_popescu: you understand this ? EXPECT. TO GET. because that's how it fucking works now. [21:49]
* trinque finds the elliot pieces coming to him daily now [21:51]
mod6: haha [21:51]
trinque: you see it goddamned everywhere [21:51]
mircea_popescu: watching the "progressive" libertards denounce "unscientific online polls" and "russian hacked internet" is pretty fucking epic. [21:52]
mircea_popescu: fancy that, the revolution will not be worldwidewebbed after all! [21:52]
mod6: what was that .ar slogan again? cracks me up [21:52]
mircea_popescu: which one ? [21:52]
mod6: something about everyone having a better life or something [21:52]
mircea_popescu: hay mas futuro ? [21:52]
mod6: haha [21:52]
mircea_popescu: lol [21:52]
mircea_popescu: it's hysterical they have absolutely no fucking future. [21:53]
mod6: it was plastered on a bunch of signs down there. [21:53]
mircea_popescu: functionally illiterate entirely innumerate. the chinese have to run the supermarkets because the locals lack basic business ability. [21:53]
mircea_popescu: pretty much the peak of argentine technical know-how is operating call centers. [21:53]
mircea_popescu: problem is a) they are too dumb to learn english, so they can only fight for the mexico and spanish markets [21:54]
mod6: you're right though, this is coming to the US. i dare say, we're nearly there now! [21:54]
mircea_popescu: and b) they expect euro like salaries for some incomprehensible reason. [21:54]
trinque: fuck man, I was buying a belt today [21:54]
trinque: you should've seen the things, two stitches on a folded piece of plastic^W"leather" [21:55]
mircea_popescu: aww. [21:55]
trinque: apparently nordstrom still has belts, for now [21:55]
mircea_popescu: they got great leather belts here. and leather generally. [21:55]
trinque: fucking sad even the one I paid 120 for will probably fall apart next year [21:55]
mod6: I bought some decent leather belts for my suits here, but prepare to pay top dollar for /actual/ craftmanship and leather. [21:56]
* mircea_popescu bought belt recently, told girl he wants to test it, girl bent over slightly and turned her generous posterior, /me whacked her one. [21:56]
mircea_popescu: shop attendant nearly fell over [21:56]
mod6: Otherwise, shitty qual. [21:56]
mod6: lol [21:56]
trinque: mircea_popescu: ahaha my thought was precisely "I'll break this!!" [21:56]
mircea_popescu: very satisfying whack, perfect leather. [21:56]
mircea_popescu: like texas used to make [21:56]
mircea_popescu: back when their bulls weren't all mechanical yet. [21:57]
mod6: I was thinking today that I should start a rope company. lol. [21:57]
mircea_popescu: where to get the hemp ? [21:57]
mod6: I think we're gonna need a lot of rope. [21:57]
trinque: lol! [21:57]
mod6: Hmm. Have to buy it maybe, or grow?! [21:57]
mircea_popescu: needs some industrial process. growing's easy enough, shit's practically a marsh weed. but to get the fiber you gotta beat it. [21:59]
asciilifeform: i still regret not buying the german gear in ba [21:59]
mircea_popescu: bout 5x the mechanical work needed for cotton. which is how cotton won (in 1800. when work was expensive) [21:59]
mod6: i told you, like three times to buy it dude. [21:59]
asciilifeform: aha [21:59]
mircea_popescu: lol so why didntcha [21:59]

mod6: <+mircea_popescu> bout 5x the mechanical work needed for cotton. which is how cotton won (in 1800. when work was expensive) << ah, hm. [22:00]
ben_vulpes: boss status [22:00]
mircea_popescu: can't be that, because you didn't go grab the gypsy girl by the cunt that invited you too, either. [22:00]
asciilifeform: i'ma bring a few kilobux next go-around [22:00]
mod6: i should have just bought them for ya asciilifeform [22:00]

trinque: lol in costa rica I asked a guy what his favorite local beer was [22:07]
ben_vulpes: less non-alcohol-or-water contaminants though [22:07]
mircea_popescu: (quilmes is this very shitty local swill. made through the same process as us beer / sodas : hfcs water and "naturally identical" flavouring) [22:07]
trinque: "oh oh, Imperial. It is like the local Budweiser!" [22:07]
ben_vulpes: trinque: "imperial!" [22:07]

trinque: ben_vulpes: I mean PDX is at least stripclub-rich [22:11]
trinque: I count that in favor [22:11]
mircea_popescu: don't grab any counts nao. [22:11]
ben_vulpes: trinque: all that really means is that there are a bunch of shitty strippers [22:12]
mircea_popescu: airport stripper like airport sandwich ? [22:12]
ben_vulpes: i have been touring random clubs when i take the corvette out for its weekly "please don't freeze up" runs [22:12]
ben_vulpes: and ho damn it is bad out there. [22:12]
ben_vulpes: pdx surprisingly does not actually have an in-facility strip club, much to my shame. [22:13]
asciilifeform: oh btw ben_vulpes i ought to have answered yesterday: there is no good reason to unplug the probesnake [22:13]
ben_vulpes: first thing i shall fix. [22:13]
asciilifeform: leave it in. [22:13]
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes why not just sell it ? [22:13]
asciilifeform: it replaces the power & reset toggles. [22:13]
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: much of my woes were to attempting to talk to the thing over /dev/tty.usbmodem123445671 instead of /dev/cu.usbmodem12345671 [22:14]
trinque: OS X actually calls it "cu" ? [22:14]
trinque: such bsd [22:14]
