The fact that you have 19 aged reddit accounts is a major red flag, that's what scammers do.

There is a scammer who was named melds39 on reddit, they tried scamming me and several others via paypal chargebacks and then deleted their account. I have no proof that you are melds39, but melds isn't exactly a common word so I am extremely suspicious.

I don't have any melds39 account. Melds was my WoW character name. Also, I acquired the accounts a while ago in hopes they'd be worth something. Turns out some people do buy old accounts, so whatever. I would just sell it myself but I don't  want to give them away for cheap.

You claim it is collateral. Alright, can you provide a means of liquidating the accounts for said value rapidly and easily, without too much hassle?

US won't fight directly, but will supply Japan and Vietnam and others with troops, weapons, and that kind of stuff. No difference.

Hmmm... that is somewhat possible. But if they want to defeat China for sure, then a grand alliance should be formed. All anti-China nations should become part of this alliance. I mean countries such as Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Philippines, India (?), Taiwan, and Malaysia (?).

In addition to this, they should create a fifth column within China, comprised of the pro-Democracy individuals and organizations. These people can be used for sabotage and ambushes.

Also, Japan.etc should bribe Russia and make sure that no supply of arms and ammunition are transported to China from Russia. (This is very important, because in normal scenario, Russia will look forward to profit from the war, by selling supplies to both the sides at inflated prices).

And most importantly, all the ICBMs of China should be destroyed in sudden attacks. Else, there is a possibility of the Chinese launching at least some of its 3,000+ nukes towards Tokyo and Seoul.

I thought ICBMs were Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles, and I thought they would be launched to countries in other continents, such as NATO countries.

Russia won't be bribed that easily, after all, they still sort of support China due to their communist background and dictatorship ideas. If the anti-China countries create an alliance, it would become too noticeable, and the war must be done in a way so that the US isn't involved at all, while they are at the back plotting stuff (like Ukraine right now).

Also, I just thought of something. Russia doesn't have to stop selling Natural Gas to European countries, they can just void the contract, pay the compensation, and then propose a new contract with ridiculous prices for the Natural Gas. Europe has 2 choices: Take it or leave it. If they leave it, they'll have to find a way of generating electricity without the Natural Gas supply from Russia, with infrastructures to be built instantly. Not really possible. So they will be forced to pay ridiculous gas fees.

If countries that are against China, such as USA, Vietnam, Japan, Philippines and many others declare war on China at the same time, they can't really do much. All they can do is ask for help from Russia and North Korea, and escalate it into a WW3, but China will get bombarded anyway.

In case of a China vs US war, Russia is going to remain neutral. At the most, they might announce some token sanctions against the Americans. Every single one of China's neighbors are concerned about the growing military might of China. Russia is no exception.

Russia is also "neutral" in the Ukranian conflict. I think that would also be the case if that were to happen in US vs China.
Also, everyone is concerned except for Kim Jong Un, who is a crazy pig that has no idea what he's doing. And he would side with China.

I doubt he is a crazy pig that doesn't know what he is doing (as he is portrayed by our medias), in fact what he is doing is pretty rational from a political stand point, hence the only reason why he and his group is in power is because of strong nationalism in the country under the threat of a war with the west and the S.Korea, that's why from time to time you see those kind of baseless acclamations as if he is standing against the US, while in fact N.Korea doesn't stand a chance the real concern with N.Korea is that they could potentially harm S.Korea and maybe Japan.

A full scale war between China and US is not going to happen, as it is the case with Russia, it's even worse with China because both sides will hurt on a large scale economically

Yup, claiming that he invented hamburgers is a pretty rational thing. Their country is powered by brainwashing, btw.

A full scale war between China and US is not going to happen, as it is the case with Russia, it's even worse with China because both sides will hurt on a large scale economically

I have to agree with you. A China vs US war is just not viable. It will be economically devastating for both the nations. China is one of the biggest holders of the US treasury bonds and US depends on China for a large part of its imports. So unless China is going to invade Japan or South Korea, there is no chance of a US vs China war.

US won't fight directly, but will supply Japan and Vietnam and others with troops, weapons, and that kind of stuff. No difference.

What would you guys think of having another chat room called "VIP" or something along those lines where only people with lets say level 20 can talk in? I've noticed the main chat is very low level betting orientated so it might be nice to have a place for bigger bettors to discuss in private.

That would probably be a good idea. Maybe one for staff or mods to chat in as well if there isn't something like that already.

That's a good idea. Also, I suggest to ban anyone that begs, or give them a fine, lol.

If I understand this correctly, ANXBTC and ANXPRO are just different interfaces to the same underlying system, and registering to any of the two makes it possible to swap between ANXBTX and ANXPRO at will?

Yes, that is correct. The thing is that you can place different orders on ANXPRO, such as Market, Limit or immediate. If you don't know what that means, you should use ANXBTC.

"Then, US starts intervening in Middle East, and they make a mess out of it, trying to get more oil and failing. They release some Ebola on the West Coast of Africa, as an attempt to quiet things down, but it doesn't work, and I tell you, some epidemic will "emerge" in the Middle East too. The USA is planning that, and I suspect they're going to use the MERS for that."
You say the US release Ebola to Africa! Are you sure the US have done this evil things? Any evidence?

No evidence at all, as I said, these are my own suspicions. Rumors have already started that there are suspected cases in Saudi Arabia, and that sort of confirms my suspicions.

Is virus and bacteria even consider a creature?

They are considered as microbes, along with fungi. They are microscopic, meaning that you can't see them with the naked eye, but they are still "alive", with the exception of viruses, since we still don't know if they are alive or not. There are other things that are considered microbes too, but they're not dangerous or deadly.

So, as an answer to your question, it would depend what your definition of "creature" is.

Not really, they can sustain themselves during a period of time, even without EU/US buying stuff from them. Meanwhile, EU won't have natural gas and everyone over here will get screwed.


If the big pharma groups stop the export of drugs to Russia (85% of the total drugs on the market are imported) will see the Russian population shrink by 10% percent in one year.

Also , what is even funnier is that most of the drilling equipment used by the Russian to dig and process and also transport gas and oil is imported from Holland , Norway and Germany. Wink

Yeah, but they already have that equipment, and if they stop selling gas, they don't really need additional equipment. Also, can i have a source for the drug thing?

The only thing Russia will bomb is its own economy.

Putin doesn't cares about the Russian economy. On the other hand what will happen to the European / American economies once crude hits $250 a barrel? And from where the EU will get half of its natural gas?

Not really, they can sustain themselves during a period of time, even without EU/US buying stuff from them. Meanwhile, EU won't have natural gas and everyone over here will get screwed.

They can also happily dump their US Dollar reserves, and stop using it as a reserve currency. That would cause the US Dollar to collapse, and hopefully, they will use BTC as an alternative and BTC will skyrocket! xD

Don't you believe it. and yer leavin' the screaming Chinese out of it.

You are overestimating the Chinese. The Chinese Armed Forces might rank #4 or #5 in the world, but as far as the nukes are concerned, they are far behind the superpowers. The reasons are:

1. Not enough high-grade Uranium
2. Technology is not advanced
3. ICBMs are not very capable.

If countries that are against China, such as USA, Vietnam, Japan, Philippines and many others declare war on China at the same time, they can't really do much. All they can do is ask for help from Russia and North Korea, and escalate it into a WW3, but China will get bombarded anyway.

However, China's original strategy was to have as large of a population as possible, so that after a nuclear war, thousands of US people and EU people will have to face millions of Chinese. A bit exaggerated, but the original plan was something like that. They switched to the one-child policy after Mao Zedong realized that if the population continued to grow, it wouldn't be sustainable at all.

Insects are a class of invertebrates within the arthropod phylum that have a chitinous exoskeleton, a three-part body (head, thorax and abdomen), three pairs of jointed legs, compound eyes and one pair of antennae. They are among the most diverse groups of animals on the planet...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insect

Insects are animals belonging to Kingdom Animalia.



Oh. Alright, I didn't know that. Learnt something new.
Anyway, it's like the black death, it's the rats/fleas that bite people, but they do that anyway, it's because they are carrying a microorganism that causes the disease.

Deadliest animal, probably this:

Don't blame the mosquito, he just wanted some blood.

Well if we're talking about blood sucking parasites, then politicians are the worst creature to inhabit Earth.

Not really, they suck money, not blood. But I ROFLed anyway.

Humans as they are the only creature capable of destroying the planet.

I don't think we can destroy the planet.  We can terraform it, but not destroy it.

Yes we perfectly can. All we have to do is launch all of the nukes we have at all of the nuclear plants we have.
Done, earth destroyed easily. It's not destroyed, but nearly all life will be wiped out. Done.
Or we could create a microscopic black hole to swallow the earth. That works too. Or launch tonnes of antimatter at earth, but we haven't reached that point yet.

Uh, isn't that what I said?  We can't destroy it, but we can terraform it.

No, wrong.

Quote
Terraforming (literally, "Earth-shaping") of a planet, moon, or other body is the theoretical process of deliberately modifying its atmosphere, temperature, surface topography or ecology to be similar to the biosphere of Earth to make it habitable by Earth-like life.

The term "terraforming" is sometimes used more generally as a synonym for planetary engineering, although some consider this more general usage an error.

Wrong word there. What you want to say is Planetary Engineering, and not terraforming.

Planetary Engineering is not used by people in the field (certainly not here at JPL).  Carl mentioned it a few times after it was cited by Fred, but otherwise it is generally regarded as terraforming.  Earth was terraformed many times prior to life evolving and nuclear fallout onto the landmasses would terraform it again - just would take a few million years for the bacteria to clear the decay.

Please don't cite Wikipedia.  Those entries are not correct.  Anybody here at JPL would argue the same point.

OK, can you provide a quote where someone says that it is actually correct then? You claim to be from JPL, I claim I am Obama. As you wish.

Deadliest animal, probably this:



Don't blame the mosquito, he just wanted some blood.

A mosquito is an insect, not an animal. Malaria isn't a living organism at all, it's a sickness caused by a unicellular microorganism named Plasmodium Sporozoite.

Virus and bacteria. See the Ebola stuff, for example, and the Spanish flu. I think the more deadly are human made biological weapons .

With animals at least you have a chance to run or fight back, but nowhere to hide from microscopic beings.

Fungus can also be dangerous.

You know, we humans created these monsters by developing drugs to kill them, making them resistant to current drugs.

Pfff... It's quite simple. Russia wants more territory, USA wants to prevent that, so they start fighting in Ukraine, as if it were the old Cold War times. USA is stupid and puts sanctions on Russia, when Russia can cripple the US Dollar. Stupid.

It is not Russia, but the US which is fighting for more territory. The CIA toppled a democratically elected government in Ukraine and replaced it with neo-Nazis from the Right Sector.

That too, I should've phrased my statement properly. Russia wants more territory, and the USA want too, so they start fighting in Ukraine.
That's what I meant. They've had a grudge for many years, and that grudge is still there.
679  Other / Off-topic / Re: The most dangerous creature of our planet on: August 10, 2014, 06:45:01 AM
Humans by far. We have created many very dangerous weapons that have the ability to wipe out life as we know it on earth.

We have created many dangerous weapons that have the ability to destroy the earth, not just the life on earth. We could also potentially wreck other planets, but it's completely unnecessary for all these nuclear weapons to exist. Once accidental malfunction, and we're all dead. Pointless.
We really should go back to beating people with sticks and clubs, they don't destroy or harm other animals.

Meanwhile, China is being pressurized by Vietnam, USA, Japan and other countries, since China is rapidly expanding and the other can't stop it. China will get the islands they are arguing over with, even if they have to use force. So we shall at least see a small war over there.

And all of this are my own suspicions.
