Gavin said, "Only invest time or money into Bitcoin that you can afford to lose

Sound advice.

Absolutely.  Anyone who thinks otherwise is spending too much time looking in the rear-view mirror.  There may be a lot of people who are quite stressed right now because of what MIGHT happen when Mt Gox opens back up in about 90 minutes, because they 'bought more coins" at $200+ and panic-sell because other exchanges are at $75 - $86 right now.

You can't could have.  I could wish I would have bought in more when I first found out about Bitcoin in Jan 2012, but I can't could have either.  Blaming someone else for your perceived lost opportunity because they were (and probably always will) suggest caution is an unwillingness to take responsibility for your own actions, or lack thereof.

I'd like to see Gavin and whoever else has public attention explain how it's a GREAT IDEA to invest a SMALL AMOUNT of bitcoin.

Purchasing a small amount of coin supports the project, and allows the user to have fun experimenting while potentially (probably) getting a great ROI.

Many pundits recommend a variety of assets and then piggyback on the success of whichever ones happen to rise in price. Don't believe the hype.

The only advice people need to heed is to risk what you can afford to lose and not take things too seriously.

If bitcoin represented 1% of the currency of the world, and 1% of the invested capital of the world... all of our heads would explode.

I personally am very pro Bitcoin, but think that anyone who sees Bitcoin as the future currency of the world is a bit delusional.  Okay, maybe more than a bit.

A viable, possible replacement for Paypal, Western Union, etc. ?  Maybe.  Replacing the USD?  don't see that happening.  I'd like to be proven wrong, but just don't see it.

Gavin and Evoorhees are trying to please everyone by attempting to put everyone's thoughts on cruise control, while almost everyone else is either hitting on the accelerator or slamming on the brakes.  Gavin said, "Only invest time or money into Bitcoin that you can afford to lose", and also "When will #bitcoin speculators start chasing another squirrel?"  I think when it comes to speculation Gavin and Evoorhees should stay quite quiet and keep to themselves.  They are just attempting to be guy that tries to be always politically correct so when shit hits the fan they are in a position to say, "I told you so."  However, they have nothing to lose when the price goes up.  Why are people not angry at Gavin for telling people to only invest their money they are willing to lose at $35-$40?  Now, bitcoin is nearing $200?  I should have bought more bitcoins!  I am glad we have people like Trace Mayer to do the "dirty" work that Gavin and Evoorhees will not do.

Do you think Jesus became popular because people said, "Jesus is a good guy, but don't believe everything you hear about Jesus."  NO!  People said, "Jesus can walk on water!  You will go to heaven!"  Look at where Christianity is now.  As Max Keiser said, the crypto-christ has returned, and his name is Satoshi Nakamoto!

I'm not saying that one should lie about bitcoin, but one should explain bitcoin in all of its glory about how it can change the world.  Smiley

yeah but Jesus didn't get popular overnight...he had a pretty extreme DDOS before he was resurrected and that took 3 days, and God was involved, and had to hang around a it before assention, even then most of his foloowers were crucified or fed to the lions
