More from the non-spam trivia-fun-facts-section of my not-so heroic first moments in this forum (you made me do it):

Did you know that the single most damaging organism to the earth's atmosphere within the last 100 years was called Thomas Midgley, Jr. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Midgley,_Jr.)? Not only did he invent and promote the use of Tetraethyl-Lead as an octane booster for "leaded" fuel, he also invented freon, which is still responsible for the destruction of the ozone layer and will be until 2100.
He died after entangling and strangulating himself in a rope-based device that was supposed to help him move about, since he was disabled after conducting polio some years before his death in 1944 (age 55).

He was a celebrated and much respected chemist at his time, since the malevolent side-effects of his inventions were only discovered decades after his death.

More from the non-spam trivia-fun-facts-section of my not-so heroic first moments in this forum (you made me do it):

Did you know that the ETH Zurich is using their Cluster to mine (http://blockchain.info/blocks/82.130.102.160)? Also, they are quite good at it. Still, what's more important (considering 20.000+ years of evolution towards what we are now) - simulating a better design for a Stellator-based Hydrogen-Plasma Fusion Reactor, or earning $$$?
(Guess they just don't want to waste idle cores. Still - I believe universities should be stopped from acting on commercial interests. It dilutes good ideas with "stuff that sells". Trust me, been there, getting paid from it.)

So much about my trivia section. Now I will read about what the bitcoin-community believes is worth a post in the biggest archive of humanity. For 2 hours and 39 minutes.

I´m a long time lurker, now surfacing to withdraw my paltry stash of NMC from CryptoXChange (who has suspended trading). I just made a new topic in that regard: I want to trade a few NMC for PPC.

For a more personal introduction: I am really fascinated by Bitcoin (and some of the alt-coins...), starting to form a somewhat informed opinions after spending hundreds of hours on the topic from when I discovered it last fall.
