2  Other / Off-topic / the box effect on: August 15, 2016, 05:57:18 PM
humans are organic creatures, lately humans have sheltered themselves into boxes, houses, that isolate them from the nature world. living in a box raised off the ground disconnects you magnetically from earth and has deteriorating effects.

living and building with earth, we can design cob houses with mud that are much more nurturing to human's needs physically and spiritually.

driving dehydrates the body quickly and should be balanced with pure non fluoridated water. shungite is a meteorite from russia that helps heal from the effects of everyday EMF activity we subject ourselves through such as power lines and computers. shungite gives the vital life essence to water, closed water systems are lacking the essential life force energy provided by nature.

humans would have much higher quality of life if we could balance our modern discoveries and innovations with nature's healing energy.

growing your own organic food is much more rewarding and sustainable than the reliance on big agriculture companies.

its easy and fun to plant life and nurture life by growing organic foods and sharing with neighbors

life would be less stressful if man can balance between technology and nature.

instead of spraying toxic weed killers we can plant fruit trees and gardens with our energy.

it feels great to have sustainable clean water and food sources, and it's so easy!

nature loves humanity, may humanity find balance with her!

7  Other / Meta / Petition to unban dank on: December 21, 2014, 06:21:59 PM
I'm creating this thread as a petition to have the user dank unbanned from this community.  He was permanently banned after posting the following thread in off topic: How to get into heaven for free - no cost, 100% free

I am asserting that the ban was completely uncalled for and unjustified.  Dank posted this thread as a spin off of this one: Spot reservation in Heaven. [OPEN] Low cost. 100% Money Back Guarantee.

Now if we are assuming the justification for the ban was trolling, should Watoshi-Dimobuto not be banned as well?  In fact a brief look at the replies further reinforces the community viewing danks thread as a legitimate discussion while members in Watoshi-Dimobuto's thread are calling him out on the obvious troll job.

I want to know why dank was banned for this harmless and communally accepted action.

Dank's final testimony - The replies of this thread indicate members of the community disagree with dank's permanent ban.  Furthermore the picture dank asked me to upload proves he is not a troll.  Unless you think a troll would go to such lengths to live in a storage unit during winter, but then I think you need to question if the odd's of dank being an honest man outweigh the minute chance of him being a troll.

Dank has been here since 2011, he has surpassed 5000 posts on this community and has spent much of his time contributing to this community and has completed many successful trades over the last few years.

I understand dank's philosophy is not what most people want to hear.  It's foreign, it's different, that's fine, but there's truth in it.  Personally, it makes a whole bunch of sense to me as I am too into spirituality, meditation and quantum physics.  Bitcoin would be worthless if it didn't offer us some kind of freedom from the system today.  Dank is trying to get people to realize that the value money has is in what you do with it.  He believes in uniting humanity and I do too, this is not a bannable offence.

Dank believes that all monetary systems are subject to the same patterns and cycles of greed.  He believes that bitcoin is ultimately another trap to keep us in the cycle.  From reading his dankcoin statement, he believes we should unite to withdraw from all monetary systems and spend what we have earned to create a new sustainable lifestyle that would lead to inner peace.  Are the staff at this community going to prove his words right?  It seems the most probable and logical reason for his ban was because wealthy bitcoiners viewed him as a threat to their wealth.  And with the staggering price of bitcoin, they probably allowed desperation to tempt them further into the idea of banning dank.

Please post in this thread if you would like to see dank back on this community.  I feel he has a lot of wisdom to contribute which is something this world desperately needs.  This world could use some love, for life without love is hell indeed.
8  Other / Meta / Dank's final testimony on: November 30, 2014, 02:11:55 AM
I talk to dank off of these forums.  He's a good guy with good intentions, in my opinion.

He was banned after posting this thread:

And he asked that I give this as his appeal:

9  Economy / Computer hardware / 4x Sapphire R9 290 rig - $800 on: May 15, 2014, 05:31:27 AM

Why was he banned again just after posting dankcoin?
11  Economy / Services / Would like to sell Thousand BTC Homepage on: April 30, 2014, 06:59:38 PM
Hi, I would like to sell the Thousand BTC Homepage if anyone is interested.  I have used it for people to post bitcoin related advertisements for free.

It is the first and largest pixel ad type website for bitcoin services.  There is much potential to earn a good bit of money with the remaining 400,000 pixels of ad space and also maintain an efficient and original marketing scheme.

The website receives anywhere from 200-300 unique visitors per month and 300-500 visits without any type of advertising.  A simple coinad campaign would increase the traffic significantly and remain over time.

The webpage is automated for people to place free ads at the moment and to pay for ads over a certain size in pixels.  Once they send the coins you must simply approve their ad in the admin panel and it will display on the homepage.

As the webpage nears down to the last 100,000 pixels or so, they will likely become more valuable and you could probably auction them off as the webpage gains more momentum.

Please submit offers via PM and anything reasonable will be considered, thank you.
12  Other / Meta / Why was dank banned? on: April 29, 2014, 04:57:38 PM
I coincide a lot with his view points, why was he banned from the forum for speaking his mind?
13  Other / Politics & Society / Censorship on: April 29, 2014, 01:10:21 PM
What are your thoughts on censorship?  I feel that the right to speak is the most important thing we hold.  Do you feel that this community values those principles?  Do you feel like society values those principles?

Yes you will. Smiley
15  Economy / Computer hardware / 290 mining rig on: January 15, 2014, 04:57:23 AM
I have four-five Sapphire 290's I would like to get rid of, depending if I decide to keep one for my PC.  Along with a 1600w Coolmax ZPS-1600B modular power supply and 990F-XA-UD7 Gigabyte motherboard with AMD FX 4130 3.8Ghz quad-core processor and 2x 2GB memory.  Will include PCI-E extenders for the cards and a power supply compiler if you need them.  Hard drive not included.

Cards get 830-840 khash stock.  Temps were generally around 70 degrees C, lower when it was cold.

Has been hashing around a month on and off.

Sold five 290's to chanberg if anyone would like a reference.

Start bids at 2 BTC ($1680 @ 840 per coin) for the four plus mobo, ram, psu and cables.  Original packaging included.

Thank you.
16  Economy / Lending / Loan for hemp on: December 20, 2013, 05:11:20 AM
Hemp oil has been used as a safe compound suitable for many medical applications throughout history.  It is non-psychoactive (doesn't get you high) and is legal in all fifty states.  It has been found beneficial for a variety of conditions including cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's, autism, heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, multiple sclerosis, PTSD, epilepsy and used for it's pain relieving, antibacterial, and neuro-protective properties to name a few.

It has been found to inhibit cell growth in cancerous cells.  I'm not claiming it to be a cure but many anecdotal reports have demonstrated so.

Perhaps the best part about this natural medicine, aside from it's wide scope of uses, is that nobody has died from adverse drug reactions or toxicity - it is a much safer option when pressed against today's pharmaceuticals, responsible for over a hundred thousand deaths each year.

I am interested in manufacturing consumable products with decarboxylated oil rich in cannabidiol including tincture, salve and supplements.

I am also interested in researching blends of hemp oil with other extracted oils from plants which have been found therapeutic.

To get to the terms of the loan, I'm seeking $2200-$4000 for the oil, depending on quantity.  I will spend my resources for the packaging, production and marketing of the product.

I will be making a dedicated effort to spread this medicine locally as well as online.

Since I am not doing this to become rich, rather to spread a safe, effective medicine, I am willing to share large portions of profit as interest, as long as we make enough for the next batch.

Message me for finer details about the brand, product and numbers.

And yes, we will accept bitcoin.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / DOGECOIN: How A Thing That Started As A Joke Became The Hottest Digital Currency on: December 19, 2013, 07:33:39 PM
Interesting article, learned a few things about dogecoin.

This is the most 2013 thing of the year.

An Australian brand and marketing specialist and a programmer in Portland, Ore. who have never actually met have successfully combined the year's two greatest phenomena: Bitcoin, and doge. The result: Dogecoin. And people are actually using it.

If you're not familiar with the doge meme, it's hard to explain   you sort of have to just see it yourself. Basically, someone on the Internet began posting images of Comic Sans thought bubbles in the imagined syntax of a devastatingly cute Shiba Inu dog. Variations on the meme look like this:

There's no point to it; it's just one of those Internet things. But people love it  you can see some "good ones" here.

About three weeks ago, Jackson Palmer, who by day works in Adobe's Sydney marketing department, and who'd been following developments in the cryptocurrency world, absentmindedly Tweeted, "Investing in Dogecoin, pretty sure it's the next big thing."

He got some replies encouraging him to pursue the idea, and a week later bought the domain Inevitably, it got picked up on reddit, a hotbed of doge activity.

Meanwhile in Portland, Billy Markus had been trying to program his own digital currency that would appeal to a broader demographic than the profiteers who've flooded into Bitcoin. But the project had gone nowhere. Then he stumbled across within a day or two of the site going live.

"The first thing I said was, This is so funny. Then I said, I should just make this coin."

He Tweeted at Palmer saying he wanted to go in on it, and before Palmer even responded, started reconfiguring Bitcoin's sourcecode, which is publicly available, to turn its user-facing elements into the doge meme.

Eventually Palmer wrote back, and the partnership was formed. A little more than a week after Palmer's jokey Tweet, Dogecoin was launched.

Again it got picked up on reddit, and instantly exploded. It is already  the 13th 7th-largest cryptocurrency, according to Coinmarketcap, with a market value (i.e. number of extant Dogecoins X price of $0.00086) of $8 million. It now enjoys its own full blown ecosystem: in addition to the website, it has a dedicated blog and forum, and of course a subreddit.

How has it done this?

Largely through something called "tipping."

If you're a geek who "performs" a "good deed" on the Internet, it's become common practice for peopleto "tip" you in your digital currency of choice. For instance: that kid who held up up his Bitcoin wallet's QR-code during ESPN's College Gameday got tipped thousands of dollars by the Bitcoin community for such a brilliant stroke of guerrilla marketing.

But it's become somewhat expensive to tip in Bitcoin, so people have turned to Dogecoin. Only about a week after launching, Dogecoin became the second-most-tipped currency, the pair say. They're hoping Facebook will accept a widget they've been working on that would allow friends to "tip" each other with dogecoin.

Still, what's so great about Dogecoin?

Technically speaking, it's more of a variation on Litecoin, which runs on a cryptographic program called Scrypt. Like Litecoin, the time it takes to process a Dogecoin transaction takes is much shorter than for Bitcoin. There are also many more Dogecoins that will come into existence 100 billion versus 21 million.

But it's the culture that's sprung up around it that's really driving it forward. Palmer says it comes down to having a lower barrier of entry for people who might be interested in cryptocurrencies but are turned off by either the price of or so-far dubious culture that surrounds Bitcoin.

"It's not taking itself as seriously, it's not being used by people  worrying about whether they'll become rich," Palmer said. "It's something to share for thanks or kudos."

Markus says his wife, who at first was turned off by his interest in Bitcoin, has started mining Dogecoin herself something you can do with your basic computer, unlike mining Bitcoin, which now requires industrial-strength processors. 

The pair say they have no intention of competing with Bitcoin, and both are still fervent believers in its potential to change online banking.

"It's a revolutionary technology, absolutely revolutionary," Markus says. "And it works as a store of value because it's deflationary, there will be a cap [on Bitcoins created]. It's just highly speculative, which makes it hard to use, to spend and spread it."

How can you tell the Dogecoin phenomenon is not a joke? This morning, Bitcoin and most other altcoins are up about 20%.

Dogecoin? Up 250% and counting.

18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Free doge on: December 17, 2013, 07:06:38 AM
I'm just trying to test something, but I will send 1000 doge to three people (preferably people that do not have doge).
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Doge stay? on: December 17, 2013, 04:46:58 AM
At first glance, not knowing the doge meme, I shrugged off the coin as a scam coin or something of the like.  One thing that did strike me at the beginning, however, was the humor.  The picture is funny, the wording is funny, the fact that it's marketcap hit over $5,000,000 in a week is quite funny.

Actually it's hilarious.

But is doge being propped up simply because it's been a profitable venture for some, or is it because the users truly believe it retains novel value and potential to stand as a competing currency?

I for one would love to trade doges for commodities in the longrun, but, in all honesty, did you adopt a doge because the money factor or the novelty?

Can we teach this doge to stay?  Or will he run away?
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / If you send coins to a different coin's wallet on: December 15, 2013, 11:00:08 PM
are they gone forever?  I thought they would just not send if the wallet was invalid but it doesn't seem that way.
