821  Economy / Speculation / Re: Sell now and buy again at $1300. on: December 03, 2015, 06:43:37 PM
Advantages: If the price reaches $1300, then there is strong momentum and it will probably go much higher.
If the price doesn't reach $1300, then bitcoin failed or something seriously went wrong. You will save yourself a lot of time and money.

Disadvantages: You miss the gains from 350 to 1300

>If the price reaches $1300, then there is strong momentum and it will probably go much higher.
Breaking the all-time high is simply that. Doesn't imply momentum.

>If the price doesn't reach $1300, then bitcoin failed or something seriously went wrong.
Failed? I'd be quite happy if by this time next year, BTC traded at $1k. Wouldn't you?
I would be happy finishing 2016 at $600. That would still be more growth than any other item in my portfolio. In fact, I can't think of anything likely to almost double in a year.
822  Economy / Speculation / Re: Pump & Dump Trap! Don't get trapped! on: November 30, 2015, 05:28:50 PM
Hey Talk, I was wondering if you could tell to us what you think a "pump and dump" is? Can you explain the process please?
823  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Epic fail, "wrong terrorist bombing Russians" are USA aircrafts "for USA market" on: November 24, 2015, 09:13:43 PM
Occam´s Razor says that they didn´t have any footage of strikes that didn´t take place in the first place so they just stole that Russian footage.
That makes no sense. I think you should sharpen your razor. And the footage does not belong to RT, They obviously did not shoot it. Why not just send an email to the show and ask where they got it?
824  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin without Altcoin ? on: November 24, 2015, 09:05:59 PM
I'm not really into alts but I think they have a side benefit. All the people who created alts must have learned a lot about bitcoin in the process. They may help write the next generation of crypto code
825  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2015-11-24] Circle, BitPay and Bitreserve to pivot away from BTC on: November 24, 2015, 09:01:16 PM
The only problem is that not a single one of those companies said they were distancing themselves from bitcoin. Though one person said they consider bitcoin just their first use case. Another new coin news website trying to get hits by posting shocking titles. 
826  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Epic fail, "wrong terrorist bombing Russians" are USA aircrafts "for USA market" on: November 24, 2015, 08:55:04 PM
and used this stock media.

Fake.
This footage is not on the stock, only on RT.com and Russian M.oD. Youtube channel. Rouptly can sell it, but who bought it can not give it in contest "US bombing ISIS oil tankers".
I believe it is publicly available once it has been published in the news. It's not like they are reporting something false or trying to hide something. The U.S. is bombing oil trucks and anyone can see the Cyrillic lettering.
827  Economy / Lending / Re: New attempt 1.3 btc requested with vehicle title as collateral on: November 24, 2015, 08:50:31 PM
Hey, hats off to the OP for writing up a serious proposal. Unlike 99% of the loan requests here he has included the right info for someone to base their decision on.
828  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: what about scammer ? on: November 24, 2015, 08:46:39 PM
I don't get why so many people get rooked here  Huh

I have yet to lose a Satoshi and your money is safer with bitcoin not less safe. For whatever reason there seems to be an endless line of suckers who think "Double my money in two days!!! What could go wrong?" Or thinking that they should buy with PayPal after a million warnings.
829  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: WHO HAVE BTC 200? on: November 24, 2015, 08:41:01 PM
Come on guys, he may just be new. No need to jump on him.

Kuna, what everyone is trying to tell you is that getting a loan that large will be just as hard as getting it from the bank. You will need lawyers, papers of incorporation, professional business plans, collateral, etc. Bitcoin is not magic, it's just money and asking for $64,000 will work about as well as if you asked random people on the street.   

we know it was a scam, Kuna knows it was a scam.. and now Kuna is trying to 'save face' by saying it was a prank to test peoples bullsh*t meters

Thank you for all your response. It's very important for us.

This was a teaser. Only your own brain can protect you from scam, enjoy it, and do not trust anyone. Even us.

Viva Blockchain!
I write that stuff for an actual new user who sees this and thinks that is how it's done. I could guess that Kuna was not so ignorant as to expect 64k in BTC from a stranger. It would be an epic thread if someone did loan him the money!  Cheesy
830  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Epic fail, "wrong terrorist bombing Russians" are USA aircrafts "for USA market" on: November 24, 2015, 08:28:03 PM
So the video was a Russian plane and the announcer was talking about U.S. planes?  Well, ok. They could have shown footage of a U.S. plane instead. My guess is that the producer wanted video of oil trucks blowing up and used this stock media. It's not good journalism to do that, however it's done frequently. They should have mentioned that this was shot by Russian planes on a similar mission.
831  Other / Meta / Re: PSA for Newcomers: DOXXING IS AGAINST THE RULES! on: November 24, 2015, 08:15:23 PM
I don't know what you mean that it is against the rules here? It (DOXING) does not even have a specific meaning. It may be done for stupid or mean reasons, but i see no rule against it.
832  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Russian pilot. on: November 24, 2015, 08:11:42 PM
Ah, you are right! I asked someone I know who is in the loop and she/he said that the YPG is no longer on the list because they were not using the few TOWs they received responsibly.

The YPG were the only group which was using the TOW "responsibly". By "responsibly", I mean using them against the ISIS, rather than attacking the secular regime forces. Right now, the YPG is having some sort of an understanding with the regime forces, and they are not fighting each other. That was probably the reason why they were excluded from the list.
I was told they lost their TOWs when they threatened to use them against Turkey. There was also concern about using them against Russian targets. A lot of the rebel groups are complaining that Russia is only bombing moderate groups on the road to Aleppo. Increasingly they want to attack Russian interests.

If I were advising the Russian forces I would do the same. Why attack DAESH when plenty of other forces are already doing that? Besides, sharing the same battlespace with other forces is dangerous and could lead to an unwanted exchange. 

But here is a nasty problem that all the air powers share. The lack of targets. Both western and SAA aligned warplanes boast about how many DAESH oil tankers they have destroyed. However they are not DAESH oil tankers. I spoke with some of the drivers of these oil trucks earlier in the year. The ones I met with were transporting Syrian oil by way of Iraq. These guys were smugglers, not terrorists. They buy the oil from a guy who bought it from another guy who bought it from DAESH. This is why the US starts it's attacks by dropping leaflets that say "Get away from your trucks, they are about to be destroyed." Then they strafe the area nearby as a last warning. Then they let them have it.
The trucks were the last easy targets and it gets tougher now.
833  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Is it possible to guess a privkey? on: November 24, 2015, 07:49:31 PM
Of course, watch me. Is your private key 1EHba6Q4Jz2uvNExL497mE43ikXhwF6kNm ?

Now just keep guessing until you guess correctly. Note that you should also start training your children to guess. This will likely take billions of years.
Yes, this is pedantic, but only because up thread was a bit more technical and your statement may cause some confusion:

1EHba6Q4Jz2uvNExL497mE43ikXhwF6kNm is not a private key, it is a Bitcoin address.
- snip -

Actually...

It's not even a bitcoin address.  It's just a random string of characters that starts with a 1.

He might as well have said:

"Is your private key 1a2b3c?"



In my defense I thought he might be tricking me with an unusual private key.  Cheesy
LOL, No, I read right past it and just plopped down a string for joke purposes.
834  Economy / Economics / Re: Is Gold the root of all evil? on: November 24, 2015, 07:43:01 PM
On a related note, I perform evil gold exorcisms. Just package up your gold and send it to me. I'll return to you pure and Godly chunks of Iron that are no threat at all. 
835  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2015-11-22] European Union Seeking to Ban Bitcoin on: November 24, 2015, 07:28:42 PM
This is what is passing for news these days:

"However, following a chain of transactions from the concerned account leads to another with more than $3 million (2.65 million euros) in bitcoin, though it is unclear who the account's owner is."

I ignore "news" from any bitcoin / altcoin website. They need traffic for add revenue and know that posting nonsense about bans generates hits. There is nothing in that article about a ban. It's just paranoid speculation that terror will be a pretext for shutting down bitcoin.

It would appear that the real war against bitcoin by governments may finally be beginning. Instead of some more direct type of attack such as physical violence against bitcoin miners, or laws stopping...
That's where I stopped reading.
836  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Turkey shoots down russian military plane on Syria border on: November 24, 2015, 07:18:03 PM
Even NATO nutbags are forced to admit that Turkey acted crazy

In Brussels, Nato officials say Russian jet entered Turkish airspace before it was shot down. Earlier the US said the Russian incursion into Turkish air space lasted just seconds. Nato ambassadors apparently believe Turkey could have shown more restraint. This from Reuters.

Diplomats present at the meeting told Reuters that while none of the 28 Nato envoys defended Russia’s actions, many expressed concern that Turkey did not escort the Russian warplane out of its airspace. “There are other ways of dealing with these kinds of incidents,” said one diplomat who declined to be named.
I think it was a rash decision to shoot it down also. But nations do not like to see warplanes in their airspace. Turkey may just not be afraid of Russia and think that Putin has few options to respond. That could turn out to be a miscalculation.

If they don´t like seeing foreign warplanes in their airspace maybe they should stop tootsie-footing with terrorists running around this way and that over their borders. I mean; all this hypocritic shitpile from Washington to Ankara via headchopping medieval fruitcakes in Saudi Arabia is supposed to be fighting terrorism right?
I think the problem is that Turkey is in this for Turkey, America is in it for America. The Peshmerga are fighting for Kurdistan, the Russians and SAA are fighting for the Syrian state, DAESH is fighting for the Caliphate, Nusra is fighting for Al-Queada, the U.S. and moderate rebels are fighting for a new Syrian state. The Gulf states, Iran, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and others are fighting a proxy war between Shia and Suni factions. It's a mess.

838  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Russian pilot. on: November 24, 2015, 06:56:55 PM
That is actually an important clue. the TOW missiles are only given to a few units in Syria. This one could have been captured on the battlefield, however the way that guy set up the DMGS looked like he was trained. That likely means a YPG or FSA unit.

The YPG (Kurds) doesn't have any TOW missiles with them. The TOW was only given out to a few of the pro-NATO groups such as the Al Jabhat al Islamiyya, Ahrar al Sham and the al-Tawhid Brigade. The Syrian Turkmen Brigade (the group which shot dead the Russian pilots) also received a few dozen TOW missiles, after Turkey provided them with the same.
Ah, you are right! I asked someone I know who is in the loop and she/he said that the YPG is no longer on the list because they were not using the few TOWs they received responsibly.
The latest I heard, which is a month or so outdated, was that individual fighters were selected and required to join Division 31. That group was wiped out in their first contact with the enemy (Al-Nusra front). Here is the list of groups *currently approved.  *this list constantly changes.

Falcons of the Mountain Brigade
Falcons of al-Ghab Brigade
13th Division
Knights of Justice Brigade
First Coastal Division
Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement
Jaysh al-Mujahideen
Al-Furqan Brigades
Sultan Murad Brigade
Gathering of Dignity
101st Infantry Division
