1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Busking to promote Bitcoin on: January 21, 2022, 02:39:19 PM
I've been given a Fender DG60CE electro-acoustic guitar. If I learnt to play it, and busked to ask for Bitcoin, would this help to increase awareness of Bitcoin?

I'm asking this because Bitcoin seems to be moving away from the common people, and finding its way into the wallets of the bankers and investment houses.
2  Other / Politics & Society / Lockdowns for those who haven't had the pseudo-vaccine. on: November 15, 2021, 05:11:14 PM
I gather that Austria has implemented a lockdown policy for those who haven't had the pseudo-vaccine. I wonder how this will pan out, and how many other countries will try this. I'm moving into my van full time, so good luck if they try to implement this in the UK. Research seems to be showing that natural immunity provides better, and possibly long term protection, and, of course, it doesn't have the risk of long term damage, and even death that is associated with the pseudo-vaccines. Will governments be able to continue with their health destruction policies as people become more aware of the true situation and associated risks.

I refer to the covid treatment as a pseudo-vaccine as there is a growing body of medical professionals who consider who consider mRNA treatments with required regular boosters as a drug regimen, and not a true preventative vaccine. I gather that they had to change the Merriam-Webster definition of a "vaccine" to include these pseudo-vaccines.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Selling items for 0.0004 Bitcoin. on: November 01, 2021, 02:12:56 PM
I want to list a number of items for sale at a fixed price of 0.0004 Bitcoin. Do you think that in view of the current high price of Bitcoin, it is worth doing this over the regular blockchain, or should I open a lightning account? The reference to the Bitcoin price is of course related to transaction fees, rather than the value of Bitcoin itself. Confirmation speed is not important, it doesn't matter if it takes a day or so to confirm.

Another consideration is the size of the transaction. Will it limit sales to people who already own Bitcoin, or will buyers be prepared to purchase such a small amount?
4  Other / Politics & Society / Are unvaccinated people purebloods? on: October 16, 2021, 10:14:50 AM
It seems that the description "pure blood" is being used by some unvaccinated people to counter the attempts to force them to conform to an unscientific global policy. The media is attempting to block this, and this is tempting me into adopting the description. What do you guys think about it?
5  Other / Politics & Society / The vaccination issue is not bipolar on: October 04, 2021, 05:58:46 PM
Everybody seems to assume that there are only two positions for vaccination. This is not true, but there are two extremes. In between there are some other views. There is the "my body, my choice" bunch, but this is a bit emotional and mindless in my opinion. My stance is a bit more reasoned in my belief. I believe that vaccines are a preventative measure, and not a cure. They should be used as an advance safeguard if one is likely to be exposed to infection, but should not be used as a cure. Once a disease becomes endemic in a population, all vaccines will do is to disrupt and overload the immune system, and their use will just encourage a virus to mutate. If a person has a weakened immune system, then the last thing you want to do is to overload it with a new infection. It is far better to attack the virus directly with methods such as monoclonal antibody injection. One should also try to  work with the natural defences. These include -

- Don't stay indoors, but get out into the sun to boost your vitamin "D"
- Let your body get rid of the pathogens by not wearing a mask, and not taking pharmaceuticals to suppress symptoms that are nature's way of fighting the disease.
- Get out and exercise in the fresh air.
- Interact with people to avoid depression

You may notice that my suggestions are directly opposed to government guidelines,  and, on reflection, you may realise that the government doesn't want you to be healthy and recover from the disease quickly. It is in their interest to keep you dependent on their synthetic health system, and to carry on the associated wealth transfer that distracts you from the other changes that are being introduced.
6  Other / Politics & Society / Should fuel sales be limited in a panic? on: September 29, 2021, 08:16:01 AM
As some of you may know, we have a petrol and diesel crisis in the UK. There doesn't seem to be a shortage at the refineries, but there is a shortage of tanker drivers, and this is messing up deliveries. As a result of BBC and government statements that drivers shouldn't panic, everybody is panicking. This has led to garages adding a few pence or more to the price of a litre of fuel, and long queues to buy fuel. Most garages have put a 30 limit on purchases. This policy seems to be adding to the length of queues, and in some cases it can take over two hours to get to a pump. Motorists are sitting in the queues with their engines running, and this can't be helping to improve the situation. This morning I went to a supermarket at 7am and I was able to get onto a pump with no queue, I just had to wait for the guy using the pump to finish his purchase. I started to fill up, and the pump cut out at 30, as this is the limit imposed by the supermarket. Last time I filled up, I put 101 of diesel into the tank, and this can keep me going for two weeks or more if I am not going on long journeys. I went straight to another supermarket to buy more, but the queue was too long for me, and I will try again tomorrow. If I had been able to fill up, I would probably havce stayed away for a week or two.

I used a pay at kiosk pump, but I noticed that there were queues for the pay at pump stations, and some drivers were taking their 30, and then rejoining the queue to get another 30 worth. This can't be helping the situation. One woman put 6 into her car, and again this can't be productive. My suggestion is that they introduce a minimu purchase of 30 (motorcycle could be exempt), and don't have a maximum. There is already a limit of one can in some garages, but this doesn't seem to be being enforced. There are also cases of people filling plastic water bottles with petrol - this is not only extremely dangerous, but illegal in the UK.
7  Other / Serious discussion / Chargeback claims against Amazon for the theft of returned items. on: September 13, 2021, 11:46:43 AM
I returned a 420 drone to Amazon via their drop box service. At some point one of their staff has replaced it with a box of car shampoo, and they are refusing to issue a refund. They are also implying that I am attempting to defraud them, and I resent that. I have never bought or owned car shampoo, and I have never even had a hairy car. I am about to issue a Visa chargeback, and I wondered if any of the members here have had a similar experience.
8  Other / Politics & Society / An apology to all the vaxxers here. on: July 31, 2021, 06:52:43 PM
I must apologise for not being ill, and not even having a sniffle or a mild headache. I've also just enjoyed the taste of a perfect avocado, and a nice piece of steamed salmon.

I feel really guilty, as I am 79, and I haven't been vaccinated for well over 60 years. I don't wear a mask, except when I am using an angle grinder to remove rust. I don't use sanitisers, but I do observe all the traditional methods of personal hygiene. I don't social distance, and I visit several supermarkets and public venues every day. I sometimes go to a naturist beach, and I don't even wear a condom. I meet a lot of unmasked truck drivers and other people during the day (not on the beach Smiley ).

I haven't met anyone that has had anything other than minor inconveniences as a result of a covid infection. The number of people that I have met who have had significant problems as a result of the vaccine is well into double figures, and several have had to take a week off work.
9  Other / Politics & Society / I don't object to a Covid immunity passport. on: July 29, 2021, 07:36:53 PM
However, I do object to one that is restricted to "fully vaccinated" people. It seems that fully vaccinated is a misnomer, as those who elected for this inferior method of protection will have to have regular "booster" jabs. It also seems that it doesn't stop you being infected anyway. I would support a passport that checked for long term "T" cell immunity, as long as those with natural immunity are not forced to be vaccinated to reduce this immunity. This would save the cost of vaccination for most of the population, but of course that is not what the government wants. I understand they have spent 375 billion on the fake pandemic, and they are going to have to justify that.

I'm a bit concerned about the changes that they seem to be considering. It seems they are talking about restricting the use of campervans, so we are probably going to see more stealth vans appearing.
10  Other / Politics & Society / The immune system explained on: July 27, 2021, 04:47:28 PM
I enjoyed this simplified explanation of the human immune system.

11  Other / Politics & Society / Are you a healthy unvaccinated person? on: July 26, 2021, 06:43:10 PM
Then you should stay that way, and resist enforced vaccination. We are starting to see the damage that vaccination is doing to the nation's health, and at some point there will be a financial reckoning. A large reference group of healthy unvaccinated peope will provide evidence for the claims by those crippled by untested vaccination. It may take years for all the side effects to become apparent.
12  Other / Politics & Society / [Bill Gates] Will Covid vaccinations start the demise of vaccinations? on: July 22, 2021, 01:25:42 PM
Pharma figures show that vaccinates are less effective than natural immunity, and they rely on the immune system to create their antibodies. They advise that unhealthy people should not be vaccinated, and it is easy to see why. Natural immunity gives 100% protection in a healthy person, but this is reduced by vaccination. This is why people are not tested for natural immunity, and not comparisons are made against unvaccinated peer groups. Vaccinations are intended to be a preventative measure, and should not be given to infected patients. Increasing the viral load in an infected patient is akin to the old concept of bleeding.

Bill Gates has been an advocate of vaccination as an aid for population control for many years, but recently he has been moving away from this concept. He is now suggesting that the future lies with phages. Here is one of his promo videos.

You can stop the destruction of human health, just by refusing the vaccines, and by adopting a healthy lifestyle. You owe it to your children, and society. We don't want to have to support nations of cripples..
13  Other / Politics & Society / The Koch brothers buy the Morrisons supermarket chain. on: July 04, 2021, 05:58:31 PM
Well they haven't really "bought" it, they have acquired it via an exchange of paper. So why have they done it? The simple answer would be to sell and lease back the stores, and extract the capital. Another possibility is to obtain control of a food outlet in the UK. The Koch brothers seem to control many of the US politicians, and they are one of the second tier dynasties in the deep state, Will they be moving into UK politics if the Five Eyes alliance takes over from the EU? Maybe they want to push that dreadful fake meat that we are told we must start to eat.

What do you think is their motivation, and is this yet another example of the "build back better"attempt to enslave the population?
14  Other / Politics & Society / Oh dear. 105mph on: June 30, 2021, 07:15:19 PM
I'm parked in a lay-by, and an unmarked police car has stopped next to me with his lights flashing. Another car stopped behind him, and I heard the cop say that he was clocked at 105 mph by a calibrated speedo. This must have been on a motorway with a 70mph limit. He has just given him a ticket. So what do you think, is 70mph too low a limit?
15  Other / Politics & Society / Some of my favourite youtube channels. on: June 29, 2021, 06:03:30 PM
I wasn't sure where to start this thread, but, as the channels reflect a variety of social and political topics, I thought this was probably the best board.

Lets start with supercar blondie. This girl has built up a business reporting on some of the world's most extreme vehicles and lifestyles. Here are a few examples.

16  Other / Politics & Society / Are you worried about the delta virus variant? on: June 22, 2021, 02:52:48 PM
It is reported to be up to 60% more transmissible. I'm OK, and I'm not taking any precautions, as I haven't been vaccinated, so I still have all my natural immunity.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / A variant on the Internet failure question. on: June 20, 2021, 09:05:33 PM
I don't believe that the Internet will suffer a world-wide failure for any length of time. What could be a possibility id that it splits in two. Perhaps Russia and China will control one with restricted access, and the five eyes will operate another. If there is no possibility of communication between the two, and miners continue to operate on both nets ( but not the same miners). Then this could create two blockchains. How would "they" handle a reconciliation? Would existing owners end up with coins on both chains, as I can't see a way of merging the chains?
18  Other / Off-topic / 79 today and still going strong on: June 20, 2021, 03:31:08 PM
Well here I am with another birthday, and still no signs of any sickness or disease. I haven't been vaccinated for over 60 years, and I don't take any pharmaceutical or other drugs. I don't use any supplements or so called health aids, and |I try to stay away from doctors and hospitals. I will confess that I probably drink too much coffee.
I'm still a believer in Bitcoin, and consider it to be a long term storage of wealth. I've been a bit slow in jumping on the altcoin bandwagon, but I'm starting to believe that several altcoin have potential as currency alternatives to fiat and government cryptos. It's my loss that I haven't had time to do sufficient research to invest in them.
I hope all you guys are staying healthy in these difficult times, and that you are staying hydrated and getting enough sunlight.
19  Other / Politics & Society / Businesses banning the vaccine. on: May 24, 2021, 01:58:26 PM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNhbm2yHdTI

We know that vaccinated people have weakened immune systems, and therefore they are more likely to be infectious, or sick anyway. These hairdressers are banning vaccinated customers, as they claim that they are not covered for disease spreading under their public health liability insurance.
20  Other / Off-topic / I hate small dogs. on: May 22, 2021, 11:29:49 AM
Right now, I'm looking after a pair of small rat type dogs, and the stupid things won't stop barking. I love proper dogs, and I get on well with almost all decent sized one - even the aggressive ones that I am told are difficult. Thankfully, it is only for today, and I'm not going to do it again. I've tried talking to them, and bribing them, but it doesn't seem to shut them up. I just don't understand why people keep the stupid things (small rat-dogs).
