Einstein said time is relative. Reading WO proves this. Away for 1 day due to super-crazy stuff happening at work. Came back and saw the flood of posts. Time is relative indeed!

Managed to observe BTC price from my phone. We had a "dip inside a DIP", and are now nicely recovering. IOW, business as usual. Honey badger was bitten by a cobra and is now recovering. Poor thing (the cobra).

Lots of fine posts here, by the usual quality WO residents. You know who you are. +WOsMerits to you all.

I see the occasional trolls are ever present, shilling shitcoins, especially during times of "crisis" (as if...). Again, you know who you are. Fuck you.

A true HoDLer knows how to separate the signal from the noise. Price charts are user-adjustable digital filters in disguise, and can do all the work for those who know how to use them. All that's needed is to lower the cutoff frequency (a.k.a. Zoom OutTM). That's why long-horizon moving averages, such as the 52/208-week MA, are such good indicators. But what do the noobs and weak hands do? They zoom in and get rekt by the white noise. I guess it's a kind of Darwinian "survival of the fittest" principle. Maybe it's a good thing.

The future of a random or unknown process cannot be predicted, but Bitcoin is neither random nor unknown. Satoshi Nakamoto has given us inside information since its inception and for the next 120 years. Use it!

Guys ('n' gal), its all OK, if you were "fuck you" rich @ $63k, you're still "fuck you" rich @ $55k. And if you weren't, you still aren't.
What if I need @ $150k to be "fuck you" rich? I'm now as poor as I've been in all but 38 days of my life

Exactly!

No big deal IMHO. Just wait it out.

Gotta take advantage of these seriously shit shitcoins and make some corn on em.

Damn. My cousin (the altcoiner I'm meeting tomorrow), once had nearly 1 million DOGE. At that time he said he would not touch them until the thing pumped. He ended up selling them early and without much profit. Now he has none. I guess it's a roll of the dice. For some it works, for most it doesn't.

The only sure thing is to buy Bitcoin.
Tried, tested and proven by math & science.
And no, llamas cannot sing.

Edit:

Some lucky guy will buy cheap tomorrow.
As for the rest of us: how does it feel to be poor, motherfuckers?

Good advice, thanks!

About MM, I remember the guy gave us either 15 of 25 pieces, can't remember exactly. Was for free (he lived in the dorm too). They didn't really look like big mushrooms or anything. They were small (pea-sized or smaller), dark and dry, with rough shape. So we took either 7 or 12 each. Swallowed with water. Neither of us felt anything. I think the guy said that from 25+ (or was it 50+) you get visuals.

Now these were untypically small for sure. A cap is up to an inch in diameter if dried and fully outgrown. There are brown ones, and greenish/yellowish/grey ones, which have some silky appeal to their stem surface. The latter are more potent, we used to refer to it as the "hawaiian type", don't know if the name was made up by some dude. If they grew good, one piece was enough for visuals. I don't even want to think about the taste, we dipped them in honey to make them more palatable.

I think maybe they were pieces of big mushrooms. The guy had lots of them in a metal box in his room. I saw him opening the box and there were hundreds of these pea-sized pieces in there. Maybe he split them into equally-sized parts to control the dosage, hence the 25+ for visuals.

Back on topic, ant-pumping in progress as The Dude has pointed out. Looks nice. Let's keep this up to $70k+ please...

[ lots of intriguing vaping/weed stuff ]

Enuff with the offtopic now. Y'all know i'm a weed connoisseur, already  Grin

Wow, I'm intrigued, OOM. You are a weed connoisseur.

Okay, let me say this: the thing I said earlier about not having smoked in my entire life was not 100% true. I've smoked once. And it was cannabis! Yes! When in college, and next to a gorgeous girl, in her dorm room. Great times. Nirvana's Nevermind playing on a cassette tape, and we were smoking one joint at a time, passing it between us. Earlier there was another girl that prepared the joints for us. She was an expert. She mixed normal tobacco with the cannabis stuff, and rolled them. I was, still am, a newbie in this sort of thing. If it was me, I would have put all the cannabis in! We had a great time. I remember feeling like I was inside a rocket flying high, accelerating upwards. If only I could turn back time...

And I've also "eaten" magic mushrooms. Yes! Are you supposed to eat them? That's what I think the guy that gave them to us said. Anyway, we made the mistake of splitting one dose between me and her. Didn't feel a thing. Never tried anything ever again. I saw a comment by a WOer here a couple of days ago, about mushrooms defragmenting your brain. That sounds so cool, as my brain needs some serious defragmenting, I can feel it. But I don't know where to get them...

OOM, if there's anything related and you don't mind, I'll be PMing you.

Thanks.
Cool story, btw. I also smoked the first J with a girl, but she wasn't pretty LOL
Didn't feel anything for the first six times, but the seventh time i got hit really nice, it was almost too much and i had to walk home through dark parks and alleys, got scared a little.

Here's my advice on MM: Especially the first few times, don't do it alone. You should be able to get a "mushroom box" somewhere and grow your own. Moisture, warm, constant environment temperature and no direct light will get things growing. If they're potent, you will likely have phantastic and wild organic trip, unlike the clear, transparent quality of LSD. You can snap out of a bad trip on LSD easily, while it's not as easy on shrooms and you might vomit your guts out. Which is some kind of defragmentation as well, if you put it that way  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
No joke: Look for experienced, trustful company for the first time. Maybe there are "phantasy group trip" offers in other countries, might well be worth a visit.

Alternative: Try microdosing and slowly step up. You'd need a couple of days in between to achieve the same ratio of potency each time, because your metabolism will adapt to a degree in the range of less than a week. MM do a lot for your life experience through microdosing, everything becomes more vivid and alive or soulful, without overflowing your brain with science fiction like mythical sensations.  

Good advice, thanks!

I think I'll wait for SatoshiLabs to add Coin Control to Trezor Wallet (thanks 20kevin20), and then mark all of the attack dust as "do not spend". Will see how this works out and take it from there.

Any decent wallet will not try to spend dust that costs more to send than it's worth. I'm not sure if this would be under the limit or not.

All dust attacks are exactly 0.00000547 BTC, some are from the same address, but not all. That's around $0.34 per dust particle. I guess it would cost more to send than it's worth...

I thought about that, but it's a lot of work, for something that can happen again in the new wallet. My cold wallet is now very securely backed up and I'll have to redo everything if I change wallets. I might do it at some point, but right now it's just too much work.

It's a good idea these days to go through the exercise of setting up a new wallet once a year or two. Keeps you on your toes too. Your backup can hold another 12~24 words eh? (Or did you go through metal stamping / etching in multiple locations which makes it a lot of work?)

Not metal, laminated paper, but something like that, yes.

I see your point and I agree, just can't be bothered right now. Maybe when we hit $100k. Oh wait, that's this year, right?

I keep receiving dust amounts of BTC in my cold wallet. They're for 0.00000547 BTC each, and come every other month or so. I remember reading here that they are used by some entities (who are they?) to 'mark' our wallets and track the movement of our coins.

I read that these small amounts can be marked as "do not spend", so they are not moved together with our own coins. I believe Electrum can do it. But what about Trezor? Is there a way to do this in Trezor?

Any comments, info, pointers, are appreciated. Is this something serious enough to be concerned about?

It's called a Dust Attack. Read more about it here: https://www.gemini.com/cryptopedia/crypto-dusting-attack-bitcoin

[...]

Edit: Trezor will have Coin Control added to the Suite by mid-May AFAIK. Ledger already has this option.

Good article, thanks. Answered all my questions perfectly. Merited.

Looking forward to SatoshiLabs adding Coin Control to Trezor Wallet. Not in a hurry to spend my coins anyway, and when I start using them, it will be very low amounts, like a monthly refill to my fiat wallet, to cover various monthly expenses. I can't Imagine myself ever selling more that 0.1 BTC in one go, and this amount decreases as BTC/USD value increases.

I would rather not move them out together with my funds than risk. Dust attacks could be an attempt to track you down ...

If you start getting lots of dust attacks, or if you constantly get dust in one particular address, I would "dispose" of that address. The way to do this is to create a new wallet from scratch, new seeds, new everything, and move your coins one address at a time to your new wallet.

If you already use an exchange, you can use them as a sort of "mixer", or if not, find a way to break the link (coinjoin, wasabi, dice? hehe.)

vaping can both make it easier and harder to quit cigs. easier because, unlike a cig, it wont stay lit till its done (cigs add chemicals to keep it burning, contrast that with a cigar with no chemicals.. it goes out when you leave it). so, light a cig and you pretty much are forced to smoke the whole thing as its gonna burn down to the filter anyway. plus it coats everything with that nice orange gunk.. (smokers just look at your computer innards and fans.. eeeew man mine were soooo disgusting).

vaping. press the button, inhale or once or twice, put it back in your pocket nice and neat, done. and those subzero mods can put out clouds of vapour of sizes that you have to see to believe. and no ash, no ashtrays that stink, no orange coating in the rooms etc. of course theres maintenance - cleaning, replacing seals, coils etc. but thats was actually an attraction to me.. kinda calming doing coils maintenance and whatnot.

[...]

I'm against smoking in general, but the way you describe vaping makes me want to try it. I see colleagues and friends with these vaping machines that look so high-tech, like some kind of weapon that came out of an alien ship or something. OLED displays, coil resistances, wattage, energy reserves.  Cheesy

I've never smoked in my entire life.

My father was a heavy smoker (3-4 packets / day). He died from it (lung cancer).

One time, when I was in my early teens, my father called on me to talk to me. He said: "Son, if you want to start smoking, I won't stop you. But let me show you something." He then took his cigarette, he filled his lungs with smoke, and then he took a white napkin and exhaled onto it. The napkin turned deep yellow. He said: "That's what you do to yourself when you smoke. Now, you do whatever you want, it's up to you."

Since then, I've never even remotely considered the possibility of starting smoking.

Time for some FOMO to kick in?



With these images, are you trying to suggest that BTC is grandpa coin?   Your little diggs on bitcoin and your ongoing disgruntledness remains somewhat subliminal, no?

We have had 48k micros, 56k modems and you didn't get that these are 64k micros? Cheesy

Ok.  I apologize for jumping the gun, reading evil intentions into your actions and presuming that I was being brain washed, when I wasn't.

 Cry Cry Cry Cry

I like the retro 'puter h/w theme.

This should be the next one:



It's a power-of-2 thing. It's cool, it's nerdy, it's exponential, and it will change everything.

Have you ever thought how much your Bitcoin stash would weigh if it was converted to gold?

Man, I now realise how impractical that metal really is as a SoV.



I see he's in the process of being transformed to Talebozo the Clown.

Suits him fine.

Well... i have been dormant for a while, only recently came back on. I do not regret converting my BTC into Fiat, especially since it gave me the freedom to not be in Debt! In hindsight, i can say that i made full use of the bitcoin i had, it actually all boils down to what makes you happy i guess! In my case, i used it for paying off my mortgage much faster than the 20 year plan i had (paid off in 2 years!). Paid off a new car, bike and went on umpteen holidays which is something my wife and I both love, invested in my hobby of diecast collection, which in itself is worth a fair bit right now!

Do i regret not having all 21 BTC, sure i do, i would have retired without a second thought if i had that kind of purchasing power but then i am looking at a retirement at 40 opposed to 50 which was my earlier plan and it is all because of Bitcoin!

Forgive me for sounding a bit harsh, micky123, but I sense a teeny-weeny tiny little itsy-bitsy degree of bitterness and saltiness in your post. I can bet that you would die to turn back time and skip that car, bike and holiday spendings. It's OK, you had fun, I understand that, but was it really worth it?

What I would like from my BTC, would be to firstly and foremostly solve the problems that really matter to me. Life-changing issues like freeing myself from wage-slavery (not really a wage-slave, but not free either), taking care of my retirement, guaranteeing a minimum income for life, providing me with a decent standard of living.

After doing all of the math and all of the science of all of the above, then I'd spend some of my leftover stash for a car, holidays, or whatever else I fancy. But, I wouldn't even think of doing even a tiny fraction of the equivalent of buying a purse for 17 BTC, when I only have 17 BTC...
