You do know what an analogy is, right? You are being obstinately literal minded. Forgery is the meat space analog to bitcoin's double spend.
Well, to me you're making an analogy between the taste of salt and the sound of the ocean. That doesn't really make sense does it?
Anyway, my point is that sometimes you can't compare stuff and you just have to accept that you're in front of something unknown and intriguing
"To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,"
"Woah there a minute Shakespere, the sea doesn't have arms. And you can't have a sea of trouble, the sea is made of water you dolt. As for fortune being made of slings and arrows; well you've gone mad haven't you? Everyone knows that fortune is an intangible concept and therefore couldn't fight you with corporeal weaponry."
I have white hair and a balalaïka, your argument is invalid.
I like the shakespeare sample
I know what a double spend is. I'm saying that eventually one of the two parties knows that you did it; how could they not? Only one chain can be valid at any one time. You cannot double spend without (eventual) detection.
Yeah, not arguing that
Why don't we just let this one go. We're obviously talking at cross purposes. When I said "you can't double spend forever", I was unclear. I should have said "the same coins can't remain double spent forever".
Hahaha I was right you were wrong, I proved it to the world, I'm so much happier now than I was before!
Well actually, I don't really remember where this started from
I don't usually read english litterature, but I *do* have some shakespeare in english, guess I should read that instead if arguing with the rest of humanity on an internet forum
