my great uncle made me a toy out of wood.. uses energy and does nothing but go in cycles.. he called it a bullshit grinder.  turn your computers off.  turn on some grow lights.. plant a garden.. make your own wine and organic products.. check out the new LED grow lights.. now that's a good invention!  if you are going to continue this amazing technology please evolve it into a BOINC type network where problems get solved!  Thank you for your time. This community breeds awesome discussion!  nice to meet all of you!  - nOgAnOo

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

It would be nice if you could hook up that device to a mechanism which calculates one hash for each turn of the handle, and rings a bell if you solve a block, like this one does:

Everything is relative anyway. Bullshit is gold if you grow vegetables. Duck! Incoming carrot jokes.

Also, apparently the OP's uncle has no use for drawing ellipses. That doesn't mean drawing ellipses = nothing.

Does this come in the 3 phase variety? I'm an Electrical Engineer.

I have an idea that takes manure and labor as inputs and converts it to fertilizer, methane trapped in solid form, and any spare electricity left over as outputs. Shall I share?

Lol, nothing like fancy wording to mess with your head, of course cow shit got methane, and with work methane can be turned into burning ice, when you pay attention to what is involved it turns out it's no big deal

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

Wanna gimme some BTC for any or no reason? 1FmvtS66LFh6ycrXDwKRQTexGJw4UWiqDX Smiley

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!
