As the time approaches, I've finalized my playlist for when we're on the last few 50BTC blocks:

1) Europe - The Final Countdown
2) REM - End of the World
Two more,

Pink Floyd - Money (live)
Early Stones - Money

Money, get away.
Get a good job with good pay and you're okay.
Money, it's a gas.
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash.
New car, caviar, four star daydream,
Think I'll buy me a football team.

Money, get back.
I'm all right Jack keep your hands off of my stack.
Money, it's a hit.
Don't give me that do goody good bullshit.
I'm in the high-fidelity first class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear jet.

Money, it's a crime.
Share it fairly but don't take a slice of my pie.
Money, so they say
Is the root of all evil today.
But if you ask for a raise it's no surprise that they're
giving none away.

-------- Tongue
Halve a Happy Day!

I think a good tradition would be to cut something in half. Even if it's just a bad habit.

Happy halving day everyone!  Grin

We were brainstorming that it'd be fun to have certain traditions or rituals on this day,

Yup, not a currency. A religion.

What about this one: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/13xd05/idea_for_the_210000th_block_lets_all_make/

Quote
For the 210,000'th block lets all make transaction with high transactions fees, to additionally reward the finder of this block;

I know, not really useful but i think a nice gesture and also the block will be "marked" in many diagrams as a spike of transaction fees Smiley

Who is with me?

Just book a transaction after the 209,999th block is mined from one own address to an other address you own and set higher than usual transaction fees.


Additionally you can proudly proclaim that one of your transaction is recorded in the first-ever 25BTC-Block, if that isnt something? Smiley

Wow. Only 9 blocks already? Seems like everyone's fired up their extra capacity to blast us right into this thing early.

+1 on this, btw I refuse to burn any fiat notes and help them go up in value.

Instead, I will print a bitcoin paper wallet and send a satoshi to it with no fees, then burn it. If it ever gets confirmed by any of you miners it will be lost forever like Satoshi himself, if not, I will get to spend it on something useful and It would mean Satoshi is still among us.

Instead of burning fiat,
Print a shit load of real looking fiat bills with on it ; "Freshly printed", a troll face, 2012 Bitcoin halving celebration day.

Then spread it all around town so people can find them.

I have better idea: LOL Smiley
Everyone sends me the first 20 coins mined (finding a block or not). 15WLztstXkfybemi9Ecd9FQ4vt6wiJjN6b
Coin will not be spent on blow, gambling or hookers.  

To be honest, this is NOT a happy day. Now at least I can be happy Smiley and you feel good too. Wink

precious stone, like sapphire, there are synthetic ones to buy

a bottle of something, liquid drinkable or not, half spilled into the fire

I like this one. Cut something in half and post a pic/vid of it.

I heard that due to the shift in the electromagnetic pull from the halving of the blockchain reward you can actually stand an egg on its end.

We should all do that and gaze in wonder at the power of physics and electricity!

I say you make a pinata out of one of the big bank logos, and bash that bastard open - hidden within are a few printed bitbills that are redeemable for some bitcoins. Too bad there aren't any bitcoin candy coins to throw in there for fun Smiley

Sure. Here is what I can offer: BTC stoneware mug #004 from ART project
All the coin is used to finance the project.

I am planning to make one with split half Bitcoin logo too, if someone orders it.

PS! Fixed the missing "s" from 'goods'
