We will have to solve these problems if bitcoin is to be accepted widely.

Hmm.. I just thought of...

You could steal bitcoin by copying them and then spending them. However, if the owner spend it first, you're out of luck.

And therein lies the problem with printing bitcoins.

The flip side is that the counterfeiter/thief? cannot inflate the economy with bitcoin cash copies.

Yes, which is good for the system, but not for the widespread acceptablility of a printed bitcoin.  I doubt, seriously, that any form of printed bitcoin transfer will be possible without some kind of trusted financial third party involved, such as a bank.  In which case, there is no point in changing the current nature of bank checks, just change the currency that they are denominated in.

Printed bitcoins have two nice advantages over bank checks. The recipient can verify them instantly and you don't have to pay for a big costly bank organization.

The disadvantages being that the recipient *must* transfer them immediately in order to limit the risks that the person who gave it to them doesn't attempt to double spend, which is only one of the major reasons that big costly bank organizations exist.  Bitcoin doesn't change the advantages of having a trusted third party, it simply removes that as a requirement to exchange online.

Yes.  Snorting cocaine with bitcoin and tripping a hooker between her breasts are major problems that must be addressed!

Oh god what a perfect sample for the things you could do with cash, there was a documentary about how you could find traces of cocaine in most 100 and 1  dollar bills.

Funny thread tho. Those problems have been addressed as far as we've been seeing!

Paper money will burn and in a pinch can be used to help build a fire.

You can use paper money when there's no electricity supply available.

Some countries have very old power stations and not enough under construction to replace them. They are getting dangerously close to the point where they won't be able to generate enough electricity to meet peak demand. If that happens there will be power cuts during which it will be impossible to use Bitcoin, or any other electronic payment method. During such times cash will be king.

McBride is the best! I remember this series. "And the screen goes black." Classic. Now will have to go watch it. Planted a seed in my brain, time to laugh.

You cant use it as wallpaper or toilet paper.

You can't burn it to heat your house, though you could mine bitcoins to do that.

You can give them to hobos. If you give hobos casascius coins he'll just ask for you to change it to a penny or a dollar.

Would hobos and the homeless in bitcoin faucets?  Someone has to.  xD  I don't think that will be enough for 40s.  But I am just kidding, I know all homeless aren't addicts.  Even the ones that are can't help it because it is a disease. 

Also, how would put make a deposit or in bitcoin on something like an apartment when the value of BTC could easily change?

You can't draw funny things on Bitcoins.
Bitcoins can only be tainted or have a text message.
