I don't think I have ever noticed a gas station charge more if you use cash or a credit card... ??

Where do you live? It's all over the US. Mostly in smaller stations

Well, put it this way..
Where I live gas stations aren't even prepay..
I hate that crap too..

Drive a long ways and I'm trying to pump gas smacking the machine for not working until I read "prepay only", say a few cuss words, go in, gripe to cashier about nonsense prepay, damn city folk, finally get gas, spin tires on way out..

I really don't pay that much attention to the cost of gas..
I only buy premium, because my cars need it, and I almost always fill up completely..
Hurts less to not even look..

I definitely don't get no 47mpg.. I'm lucky to get 20mpg..
I like to buy cars that are designed to burn fuel as fast as possible, and then do what I can to make them burn fuel even faster..
Gotta feed the trees some yummy CO2 ya know..

The only "brand" of gas I prefer is Shell V power 93... Other than that any old 91 will do just fine, but I feel the 93 is a little more det safety..

There was no USA in 1619.

Right..
That was England...

England had slaves in the Americas longer than the USA did by far..
USA freed the slaves soon after becoming independent...

Wanna blame someone for slavery? Blame England..
USA freed em..

Say thank you to USA for freeing slaves, and kicking off the end of most slavery across the west...

The USA is GREAT!!
Such a great slave freeing nation..

Might be the bestest slave freeing nation that ever did nation or free slaves.. ??

And they still cry about it..

I wonder what happened to good old "sign bloody message".

No shit right.. That's what I was thinking..


[!WARNING!] Escrow Impostors on Telegram [!WARNING!]
I wish there was a way to effectively educate newbies about this threat.

Why is their no mention of proving identities in this thread then?
Teach them that they should expect anyone engaging in a position of trust to use their staked identity, period, on TG or on BTCT no matter..  
Telegram account usernames are not any proof of identity, nor are BTCT accounts.. A good escrow should sign every deal with a staked Bitcoin or PGP public key..


Please do not send funds to anyone who provides escrow addresses through Telegram! and does not use a staked escrow address as identity or sign their staked identity..
ftfy
That's better IMO..

Want to teach newbies?
Set a good example and sign your identity for them the first thing when dealing with them on TG just to be professional.. Get them used to this protective formality.. Sign every time you are expected to be the real you..
Every escrow contract or deal should be signed and/or received only to a staked receiving address no matter if on TG or BTCT..

This is the way to protect yourself from stolen identities across all platforms..

Bitcointalk accounts don't mean shit for proof of identity either...
Your staked keys are your identity and any accounts you use on any platform are just sockpuppets of your identity that can be hijacked at any time.. But your keys cannot..



Bitcointalk PMs, posts, and even quoted posts, are not even near the level of proof of agreed contract compared to receiving a signed message signing the terms of the contract, and saving it yourself..

What stops any account from making a deal with you, like taking a loan, and then coming back a week later with "I was hacked, I didn't agree to that!"?
Have their real identity sign the agreement terms, for future proof of their deal acceptance to protect yourself with ultimate proof..
Same with any deal requiring trust from any party.. Terms should be signed..

Initially I had mentioned in my escrow thread that all addresses I provide will be signed with my PGP key

You can also stake escrow receiving addresses..

Example:
1erct98c45wut85cterc90g8fg098
"DWM14 will only ever ask funds to be delivered to one of these 3 escrow recieving addresses
1213423542532453 , 1rtgj89tgj49cgjc48rjgfwf8jrege , 1fjkgn58gj459ojfw5489ji
signature-5atw45cye67 56u yh65ers5 t54etrf
Or signed with PGP..

If you want to get around monotonous repeated formalities, only receiving to staked addresses still basically proves that it is going to be received by the correct identity without having to sign every time, unless you or your customer also want you to sign the specific terms of the contract, then you should, IMO..


I guess people are lazy???

I'm all for net neutrality, but I'm against social media companies being forced to service customers they feel are bad for business.

Uhhhh....
Net neutrality is more protections for the big data companies like FB, netflix, google, youtube, etc...
It just has a nice and fancy sounding name... Another trick.. Like the "patriot act" or the "affordable care act"..

Don't even get me started on how netflix is also aligned with the agenda shoving...

We think American society is a particularly discriminatory society

The USA only had slavery for 80 something years before we ended it, and we ended it nearly world wide when we did..
If anything we are more responsible for ending slavery than any other nation and practiced it for far less time than most every other nation..

If we are so terrible, then why do all the 3rd worlders want to move here, and why are "minorities" not leaving the country?
Eh?

Maybe because it doesn't matter who you are or where you are from, the USA has the most opportunity to be had by anyone in the world, and it is truly available to all that are here or come here legally...
You just gotta put on your bigboy pants and go and get it..

Blacks make up 13% of the population, yet commit more than 50% of the crime.

Ooohh... You mentioned the 13/50!!!
Naughty naughty..

I was just watching a cop's interpretation of one of those police shootings, the guy with the taser one, and he said it was more like 3% because it's mostly only black males 15-25 years old..
So it's more like 3/50.. According to him..


Blacks are lazy as fuck.  Especially the North American ones.

Not all of them... I have worked alongside a many that kicked major ass and got shit done.. They made huge money..

There is no 'systemic racism' anywhere in the USA or Canada.  Do you want proof?

Look at the success of East Indians and Asians.  

Hard work works.

Parenting, family support is all it matters when it comes to education.

You cannot break the cycle of poverty without education.

Blacks should stop idolizing the gang culture, stop shooting each other, instead, they should start reading more.

Agreed with this..
One of their main problems is single motherhood..
Statistics for all races turn out poorly for children with no father figure in the home, and sadly American blacks these days have very very high rates of the father leaving..

I place a lot of the blame for this squarely at the feet of the left incentivizing single mothers with many children as a way to get a lot of welfare cash/food support..

And the left has most of the blacks convinced that they CAN'T and it's all racism's fault..
The perfect way to get someone to fail is to get them to believe they can't do it.. The way to succeed is to think that you CAN do it, and just don't stop trying..

Yeah I guess..
I got sucked into Bitcoin for it's potential to take the power to print money away from governments..

No agenda at all...

Might be because of an agenda, or it might be jumping on the bandwagon as all companies are afraid of pissing off the mob and being canceled. Does anyone actually cares about the BLM movement, or are they just pandering?  

They are the ones pushing the agenda, creating the mob.. The media and big tech companies are causing it, not just pandering to it..
It's top down, not bottom up..

Top down from way way way up top.. Those seeking ultimate power over many countries.. One world government shit..
Everything the left does is almost always traceable to their efforts to create an ultimate authoritarian one world government if you can open your eyes wide enough to see the big picture..

This effort is divide and counquer.. Overthrow those that seek liberty and resist control..
Get them all to vote for anti-"racism", free stuff, protections, open boarders, and toss out the constitution and eventually sovereignty while they are at it..

With pool-shock, you can cheaply make/store (long shelf life, compact, just add water) a ridiculous amount of "bleach" like disinfectant solution, and sanitize water for drinking or flushing wounds..
dyor

I use it in my aeroponic cloner..

Make basically any strength "bleach" you want, from city water to dangerous stuff..

The problem with pool shock is, after you open the hermetically sealed container, you need to hermetically reseal whatever container you place the unused portion into. If you don't, humidity will gradually neutralize it.

Pool shock is great. But you must seal the unused portion in such a way that humidity can't get at it. You could separate it into plastic drinking straws, and seal them with soldering iron. Make sure the iron is clean.

Cool

That's a cool Idea.. weight out portions and seal them up like pixy sticks!!
I think it would be great for a bug out bag or in your first aid kit for making drinkable water out of a river or even making some sterile water to irrigate a bad wound in the field..

Imagine the hilarity that would ensue if the police searched you and found all those little straws full of white powder, lol.. And tasted it like they do on TV..

Little bags are only like $5 and will make like 10,000 gallons of drinkable water..
I put my open bag in a mason jar.. Will probably rust the lid out eventually but it's only $5 for another bag..
I could probably never even use 1 full bag in my lifetime for what I actually use it for.. 1 gram of that stuff is like a years worth of clear-rez..

Ok...
So even if Stef did some content on race and IQ many years ago that you may not agree with, it is obviously not the reason he was recently terminated from youtube.. As I said, those topics were done years ago..
He never called anybody niggers or said any such thing like whites are superior.. If anything he said that Asians and Jews have the superior average intelligence, something a white supremacist would never admit.. He is no nutjob/wackjob/alt-right/kkk/Nazi of any sort, but think whatever you want..

That is just being used here as an excuse to agree with political deplatforming by the big tech companies pushing an agenda..
Great news for you if you agree with the Marxist agenda.. Congratulations..

Not me.. I'm a lover of freedom of speech, and I believe that the truth will prevail in an open contest of ideas..
The way I see it, if something is false or incorrect, their is no reason to be afraid of it because it will be crushed by truth.. So let all ideas fly and see what comes out on top..

I guess some people here agree with censorship of ideas that are contrary to their own, and that's kinda sad to me, but I sure don't want them banned for those views as they do in turn..

Reddit, fabebook, and youtube etc. are great for censoring speech of libertarians and pushing the Marxist agenda.. Cool story..
IMO even if it is legal, it is vastly unethical and immoral.. But I guess not if you agree with it..

If you can't see almost every big tech company from Wikipedia to Google attempting to influence public opinion then I would contend that you are blinded by your favorite narrative...

I don't think anything is going to change anytime soon.. I'm mostly just sitting back and watching the downfall of the west..
Looks like a 4th Marxist reich happening these days to me.. It may be wise of you to be seen to be on it's side, but not me.. My morality of truth is worth more to me than fear of the new brownshirts, the BLM..

Ban guns, burn books, censor all "racism" except against whites no matter how blatant, blame all their problems on someone else, create hate..
The writing is on the wall..

Seems very fucked up to (1) recognize that social media is evil but (2) use it to indoctrinate the "sheep" as long as it's the "correct" doctrine. Would it be ok to run ponzi schemes or sell meth to finance conservative campaigns?


So it's hypocritical for anyone who disagrees with the way youtube and facebook are ran to use them?

Would it be unethical to speak about democracy in china?

What's the end game?
Ultimate power over the peasant classes..

Seems very nebulous. ~10-15 years ago the social media as we know it didn't really exist. Was it created specifically to control the peasants or did it somehow get subverted? As far as I can tell people voluntarily join it and even give up their privacy for whatever it is they get from it. I would understand advocating against that loss of privacy and against the use of social media in general, but instead we have this bizarre desire even by conservatives to get in on the whole scheme. Something doesn't compute here.

People are brainless NPC attention whores addicted to likes.. Most people are completely oblivious sheep..
Look at what tiktok is doing to our young generation.. Sexualizing them, indoctrinating them, getting them addicted to the likes..

The NSA/CIA have big interest in social media and big tech companies.. Something like they "never imagined people would voluntarily carry tracking devices in their pocket everywhere they go and update the internet about everything they do including current pictures"... Can't find the quote..
Like the Chinese social credit score system.. They spy on everything..
Those seeking ultimate power love the big data.. Those in charge of big data know what they have..
Always seeking more ways to get more data.. It's part of their arsenal..

Social media is also a very valuable tool for everyone to use to disseminate information and advertise..
With things like elections it is also very valuable to conservatives to advertise and get their messages out.. Get seen..
It is even valuable to anarchist philosophers to spread their message.. To have an audience..
If you are going to commit your life to speaking about libertarianism, or whatever, you need the views for ads and/or donations so you can make a living doing it.. Life isn't free..

It's the best way of reaching out to the masses, no matter your message, and the big tech companies are onboard with pushing narratives because they want in on the power side and they make government deals to get tax breaks and such..

Facebook isn't going to get a tax hike from leftists if they cooperate with them..
These big companies probably don't pay much of shit in taxes..

They've been happy to allow all sorts of nutjobbery until recently... seems like a shift in public opinion is happening and forcing the tech giants to rethink their business model and not the other way around.

Nah... They are just always upping their propaganda and censorship game more and more..
Google search results have been biased forever..
Youtube changed their search algorithm a long time ago to promote only "mainstream" news..
Facebook bans anything they can get away with that isn't progressive..

Here's the problem: he's not a scientist and taking his words as "scientific stuff" is an intellectual failure on the part of those who do. He's a social media personality and professional speaker. Nobody thinks science is "white supremacy." Actual scientists have debunked the majority of his claims and the rest of us can see them for what they actually are: inflammatory nonsense designed to give white supremacists (his primary audience) a boner.

Here's what the professor Molyneux based much of his "research" on has to say about him:[/b]

"These people are just coattail-hangers. They don't have anything new to contribute to the debate - they just try and make the debate spectacular. I've invested a huge amount of time on this issue, read all the best thinkers, and wouldn't think it would be worth my time."
..
"I've never seen him in the literature as having made any supplementary points to the points Jensen made, and his reputation is such that one suspects he oversimplifies the debate. You have a limited amount of time in your life, and if you look at what every nut says about every issue, you'll never have time to do anything else."
....
But the very same professor that Flynn got the data from, in the very same article you quote from, has a bit more to say.

"...if there's free speech, some people will be naïve enough to endorse views I think are [not rational]… If you were to tell me over the phone today the theory of evolution was wrong and every little fish was created by God, I would think, 'How pathetic.' But I certainly wouldn't try and shut you up. I might think to myself, 'I hope he doesn't get hold of some naïve young person who'll believe him, but I wouldn't stop you.'"


HE SPECIFICALLY DISAGREES WITH YOU AND REDDIT that Molyneux should be suppressed.


The article from nutildah also says such things as...
"no one should listen to anything Stefan Molyneux has to say on the topic. But not necessarily because he's wrong."
And..
"I'm a socialist"




Stef's discussion of the topic stemmed in the first place from this thing that happened...

"The father of DNA says he still believes in a link between race, intelligence. His lab just stripped him of his titles."
https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/01/14/father-dna-says-he-still-believes-link-between-race-intelligence-his-lab-just-stripped-him-his-titles/

Father of DNA stripped of honorary titles after saying he still believes in link between race and intelligence
https://nationalpost.com/news/world/father-of-dna-stripped-of-honorary-titles-after-says-he-still-believes-in-link-between-race-and-intelligence

A New York laboratory has cut its ties with James Watson, the Nobel prize-winning scientist who helped discover the structure of DNA, over “reprehensible” comments in which he said race and intelligence are connected.
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jan/13/james-watson-scientist-honors-stripped-reprehensible-race-comments


I think he might be a real scientist... nutildah?

We were talking about censorship right?
Stripped of his titles over inconvenient truth.. A fine example of censorship..

Too much government involved either way imo.. If it was an actual free market I wouldn't give a shit..
