You're in the wrong neighborhood for selling this. No competent bitcointalk user would buy this for 10 btc. You can just grab the apk or ipa from the hundreds of sites that are hosting it and install it that way.

The people that fall for buying something like this are the eBayers who don't know any better. Someone basically artificially inflated the price of the game by putting those iphones up and having fake shill bidders bid $20,000. That's how they get people to buy these for $1,000 - $9,000 thinking they can turn a profit when there's not even a demand for it.

I used to go on a ton of online dating sites back in high school. Plenty of Fish was one of the more memorable ones. Nothing really came of it and I grew out of it when I hit college.

O Brother Where Art Thou

It's basically a modern--errr pre-modern take on Homer's Odyssey. Flew under the radar on a lot of people's watch lists just because it was never on the big screen. I make it a mission to introduce it to all my friends. Most of them like it. Everyone should give it a try if you're a fan of Clooney or Homer's works. Lots of ingenious ways they allude to the Odyssey here.

Of all the hundreds of billions of galaxies in the universe, it really is a bold arrogant statement to say that nothing is out there except us. Interstellar aliens making contact with us wouldn't end well for us in my opinion. Think about us for moment. What do people do when they encounter a more primitive civilization than themselves on Earth? Yes, they pillage and massacre and profit. Just look at the modern day example--Africa.

Stephen Hawking holds onto this belief as well. According to him, another sentient life-form is likely to exist given the unimaginably vast amount of stars in the observable universe. Out of all those stars, wouldn't you think an event like that on Earth would have occurred? His very words: "“We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet."

Think about how inherently evil humans are. Now apply that to another species that has the technology to rectally pilfer our whole species.

Great news. Now I will be able to view the btc flag in space when I'm on my Space Flight with Virgin Atlantic *Dreams*. Seriously this is pretty cool, if anything this is going to stir around some free publicity for bitcoin. If only I had the capital to create a buzz event for bitcoin as cool as this--you'd be seeing bitcoin blimps all across the states.

350  Economy / Services / Re: Paying 0.025 btc, create me an account with feedback on on: February 03, 2014, 01:11:44 AM
I can do this. I have ebay account with 15 feedbacks is that ok?

how do u know he wont use that account to scam people and put u in trouble ?

I believe Bonanza erases any eBay account information after they acquire the feedback counts. But I'm new to it so I could be wrong. If any advanced Bonanza users can chime in on how to make this transaction safer for the person doing the account creation, by all means I'm listening.
351  Economy / Services / [Closed] Paying 0.025 btc, create me an account with feedback on Bonanza on: February 03, 2014, 12:52:41 AM is basically like eBay. When you sign up for an account, you can import your feedback ratings from eBay. I need someone to create an account with my specifications and add their feedback from eBay to it. Bonanza doesn't care about the specifics of your eBay feedback, it's only looking for a feedback count, you could have sold 10 paperclips for all it cares, it will still import a feedback rating of 10 (100%).

By having you create the Bonanza account for me, I won't be touching your eBay account. I believe Bonanza deletes all history of it once it gets done with the import process. Looking for a user with at least 10 feedback as a SELLER to do this for me. I'll pay more btc depending on your seller feedback count.

352  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Solves a Huge Problem for the Global Economy on: January 29, 2014, 08:04:54 AM
It's great to push for bitcoin adoption and all but saying bitcoin will solve global economic crises is a huge stretch. Bitcoin in its current state is unwieldy. Think about how many fees you pay on exchanges to aquire bitcoins or move them to fiat to spend locally. Of course in the present, the bitcoin economy hasn't grown to the point where someone wouldn't need to convert to fiat in order to use his/her money.

Think about how difficult it is to explain bitcoin to an average person in the U.S. who has access to internet and other 1st world amenities. Now think how hard it would be to explain bitcoin to someone in Africa who has no knowledge or concept of what the internet even is.

Rudimental - Waiting All Night

Been really liking this band a lot. They have some great songs. Good for workouts too to get pumped up.
354  Other / Off-topic / What was the dumbest thing you did for love? on: January 29, 2014, 07:48:10 AM
While daydreaming on the job, I was thinking about why I had gone to such great lengths to impress girls in college. One of my more memorable accounts was when I was a freshman. I had this girl in my intro to bio class, her name was Stacy. Stacy had a giant rack and a really nice bottom. The kind that makes you do a double take if she were to bike past you. I was really into Stacy but we weren't really going anywhere with me being stuck in the friend zone. I had her facebook, so I began cyber stalking her profile. Everywhere she went, every picture she took--I had a vicarious memory of. I'd imagine I was there with her and feel happy for a moment in time.

So anyway, while I was creeping her to the max I jogged down what she liked to do, her favorite bands, restaurants, etc. I thought that the more things we had in common the better the chances of me popping the "date" question. Needless to say she felt kinda uncomfortable that I was mentioning all her favorite things all the time and we eventually stopped talking altogether. Freshman desperation, don't do it.
355  Other / Off-topic / Re: Gambled away my tuition bitcoins on: January 29, 2014, 07:33:46 AM
I really think converting all your fiat into Bitcoin was a bad idea for you. You say you never gambled before this which indicates that you had hesitations about gambling your dollars away. But the thing is when all those those thousands were converted into bitcoins, numerically they looked much less innocent; 6 btc as opposed to $4,800 dollars. There is a psychological phenomenon behind this. You don't really think of bitcoins as money anymore and it's much easier to gamble with btc than it is with USD online.

Those are the really dangerous factors that can snag people into a gambling addiction if they aren't careful. The kind of people who would never consider even betting $20 are fine when that $20 is only 0.024 btc. I'm guilty of this myself and have lost a bit of coin just because bitcoin was so easy to gamble with.
356  Other / Off-topic / How do you make friends after college? on: January 22, 2014, 06:24:56 PM
I graduated last year and started working in California. A lot of my co-workers are in their early 30's or early 40's. Most have kids and the ones who don't do not entertain the aspect of socializing outside of work. In university, I lived in the dorms and could stop by at any room and start mingling. Naturally I made friends that way throughout the 2 years I was in the dorms.

At school there were clubs where I could find others with the same interests and make friends that way. After leaving all this behind, I'm a bit lost as to how people make friends post university. I think it gets exponentially harder to make friends as you age. When you're a little kid, anyone can be your friend but as an adult you have all these other filters you think about when trying to make an informed decision about friendship.

'So what has driven them to Bitcoin? The brief answer is greed'

well, hard to disagree with that.....crypto peeps are the greediest fuckers around.

Everyone is greedy.

Corporations screw you in the butt by charging you for services because they know you have no where else to turn to or are too lazy/ignorant to look into alternatives. Bank of America with it's ridiculous "free" checking service fees anyone?

The government screws you anally with no lube, I barely make 3k a month and get 700-800 taken out of my paycheck. Awesome huh?

Schools stick dildos up their students asses and turns on max vibrate mode. I'm still in student debt from University for another 5 years at least, paying back 40k in fees.

If you live in America, expect to get screwed by everyone and go into debt if you adhere to the traditional way of life.

If you think bitcoin will become a global currency to replace or rival fiat than I would suggest to get your feet wet. We would still be in the innovation phase. I think we're still in the innovation phase, and not because I think that Bitcoin is going to take over as the global currency. Look at what's happening around you bitcoin-wise. We've seen new technology that is trying to keep pace with bitcoin, new miners, new atms, countries recognizing btc.

There's more importance to bitcoin than just getting rich (Well I guess that's a bonus for the very very early adopters). Just because BTC is still in the innovation phase does not mean that the price is going to skyrocket as it progresses into larger adoption. Logically, the price will rise as demand rises, but don't be a fool and equate people adopting the currency into dramatic price gains.
359  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin in Africa on: January 22, 2014, 05:44:49 PM
I don't see why bitcoin would be widely used there yet. The MPisa service already seems to give the ability for individuals to transfer money between themselves within the country, and it is probably more expensive to use bitcoin rather than Western Union to transfer money into the country because of the fees, inconvenience and risk currently associated with buying and selling bitcoins.

I think these fees, inconvenience and risk for conversion betweeen bitcoin and fiat are possibly the most important indicator of the viability of the bitcoin economy, and I'd love to quantify them in different countries, and track them over time. Specifically, I'm interested in the percentage cost to transfer fiat to bitcoin and bad again to fiat.

Think about how hard it is explaining bitcoin to an average American who has access to 1st world services, internet etc. Now think of how hard that would be to explain to someone who has no concept of what the internet is.
