I read an article last week in a major newspaper detailing how it appears to be a thing now in Japan to buy mannequins resembling inflatable dolls and live with them as if they were their partners. I'm sure it has the advantage for a man to never be contradicted or be turned down. Yet, how desperately sad that Japanese men to have to resort to this. It attests to their emotional incapability and human tardiness.

a chi senza campagna cosa consigliate?

Potrebbe essere un buon inizio leggere questo bel thread comparativo: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=615953.0
Almeno ci si fa una prima idea vedendo anche qualche cifra...


Grazie per il link, molto utile!

Can I know what happened actually?
A thread which you've posted in was moved to the trash can.

That's why you should pick the threads that you will reply on since not all topics are constructive and some are trashy so trashy things should be placed to where it belong i.e. trash cans.

Its going to affect my signature earnings!!  Huh Huh
Yes, luckily.

A classic example of 'Crypto world spammer problems'. Roll Eyes
The real deal is this. I thought you were curious and what's going on but in the end you were concerned of your "signature earnings."


Your point is legit and I hate spammers too, however I wouldn't blame someone just for being concerned about their activity rank because that is just as legit. Especially given how obscure it seems to be, i.e. not explained as clearly as it could be and sort of hidden in threads that are a little hard to find. A good professional forum would have Community Rules highlighted at the top so newcomers could get on board and up to speed right away.

As for trashy threads, you're perfectly right but again: if a thread has been allowed to get started at all then it must have been approved by a moderator. And if the title was so trashy and not constructive to belong in the bin, why did the moderator leave it instead of binning it straight away??? The way I see it is that no matter how trashy a thread might be, if it's there then people have the right to reply and their activity should be counted.

The truth is that the people in charge of this forum would rather have as much traffic as possible to show for, however trashy their threads, rather than put in an effort to filter quality at the source.

Choose a topic you like and make posts for it. You can only get 14 activity points per 2 weeks. Technically you make 14 posts in one day wait 2 weeks come back and make 14 more posts again. This way you can get the maximum activity points in one day and not post everyday.


Yeah, it's not genuine participation this way but I can understand the frustration of writing fully sensible and informative posts and notice your activity is not calculated. I stopped writing altogether and didn't begin again until I stumbled upon this thread simply cause I thought it had all gone to waste.

Now tempted to schedule it as a bi-monthly activity...like going to the movies or something!

This post is very useful and I've been looking for it since I joined.

I feel it should be MUCH easier to find and maybe there should be a small section at the top of the forum called "Community Rules" or something like that to give clear instructions as to how to go about the forum, posts # vs activity and so on.

I feel this thread somehow takes the piss of the one category of people whose life situation is utterly tragic.

Sure there have been more people ending up on the street this past decade due to the economy and world crisis and could therefore be more resourceful and educated than you'd give them credit for if judged solely on their living conditions but at the same time, if they're on the street is how they live, it means they can barely provide for their very basic needs otherwise they would have a place to live and would not be begging for food. Skipping knowledge, there are expensive devices one would need to have to run any Bitcoin investment that it is hardly compatible with their life situation.

Wanna really help someone on the street? Hire them for minor maintenance jobs and pay them regularly, then find friends and family who could need their manpower so they have an incoming stream, however modest and unstable. Eventually invite them in for a warm meal and explain to them how coins work. If they seem keen, educate them and let them take it from there. The truth of the matter is that as long as they have no money (never mind disposable money!) they can get no coins and therefore need no wallet.

Everything else is just cheap speculation if not downright denigration.

If you are retiring in 15 years or more its well possible that 1 bitcoin can be enough to retire on even in a first world country. I wouldn't put all my eggs in one basket though and rely solely on that, I would still look at other options just incase.
Don't settle for a low amount of bitcoin aim higher, i think 10 to 20 bitcoins will be enough after 15 years or more to build an average modern looking house because the price of bitcoin is keep on growing because of the demand that keeps on coming from the new adoptions from different people and also from the countries that are getting into bitcoin because of the potential of its financial system.


Exactly! No one can possibly feel safe with 1 Bitcoin in their wallet unless they live in such a poor country where housing and living in general constitutes nearly no expense. And even then, you don't know how that may change in the next 15-20 years so one could be in for a very rude awakening...

I think Bitcoin is the quintessential investment for retirement.

Keep your job, save to invest and watch it grow. Obviously you need to have more than just a couple of Bitcoins in order to be able to live through your old age. My advice would be to never keep all eggs in one basket since no investment is ever 100% risk-free.

I hope Google will no longer be around by 2037. This world ain't big enough for the both of us.

I think it would have to be Counter Strike.
Not in a team and as for PC or console, well... Definitely PC !!!

Consoles just don't do it for me, sorry guys!
13  Other / Off-topic / Re: Why We Are In This World? on: June 21, 2017, 09:20:04 PM
We are in this world to slave around at a job we hate that barely pays minimum wage, to make whatever amount of money we can to buy more of the same stuff we already own which we never truly needed in the first place. We spend hours stuck in traffic on the way to nowhere, to do nothing significant and then repeat, only to be able to go back home and tell everyone we've been somewhere.

On a bigger scale, we're probably meant to keep running on this wheel to keep the system going, to pay taxes to a government that will then use them to finance wars abroad that will destroy things so that our corporations will get much needed deals to go in and rebuild it all for a profit. When all is completed, more wars will take care of knocking everything down again so we can go in one more time and rebuild something that could have been left standing but at least this way we have something to keep busy with.

And then we die. Cheers.

Apart from wondering why this thread even exists (perhaps a moderator could enlighten me) since this matter has been settled ages ago, my question is:

even if it was true and we had all been scammed, would it really make a significant difference to the way we live?

I think not, therefore I intend to continue my evening as I had planned and just let it be.
15  Other / Off-topic / Re: Whats a good anonymous email service? (free)? on: June 21, 2017, 09:00:07 PM
thank you will try...

Well i thought then when you use VPN that you cannot acces your normal email (e.g. gmail etc.) because the mail "senses" there is something wrong with your IP and doesnt able you to login or to sent emails at least...



that's good enough a reason in itself to do away with your gmail account and switch to Protonmail instead. Welcome to the future!   Wink

17  Other / Off-topic / Re: What comes to your mind when you think of Japan? on: June 21, 2017, 06:24:28 PM
To me Japan equals Nikon, my fave!

Otherwise I associate it with mad people working 24/7 and sleeping at the office, manga portraying underage girls being forced into sex, young girls mimicking sex to paying customers behind a glass and sad lonely men gathering at local bars buying drinks to a really young entraineuse.

The Japanese people I have met have all been very kind and courteous but there is something about their whole modern culture that I find somewhat unhealthy...

I had once started studying the language and for a period of time I was very much into Japanese literature. Yet I think that if Mishima was alive these days and saw all these things, he'd end his life the exact same way he did.
18  Other / Off-topic / Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Stockholm - Sept 7, 2017 on: June 21, 2017, 04:43:28 PM
Is anyone planning to attend the Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference in Stockholm on September 7?

Similar conferences have already taken place in Prague and Moscow and there's one scheduled for tomorrow June 22nd in St. Petersburg, Russia.

I have never attended any such event and I was pondering on whether to go since I should be in Sweden around that time.

If you have attended one of these events, is it something you would recommend? What was your experience?

Thanks!

I definitely would accept Bitcoins instead of a standard salary but I doubt it is going to happen anytime soon.
To be feasible it would require the government to also accept to rake in labour taxes in Bitcoins and before this can happen Bitcoin would have to be accepted as a legal currency, which is not the case at the moment.

It would be easier to suggest a movie if you had indicated what genre you like but since you haven't, here's my stab in the dark:

The Celebration by Thomas Vinterberg
The Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders
Adam's Apples by A.T. Jensen
