The problem with lottery winners is that they are bad with money in general. That's why they play the fucking lottery in the first place.

We only hear about the ones that want publicity. I bet the winners who want their identities kept secret are better with money than those who want publicity.

Sure but that's not even the point. On average, you have to spend more money on lottery tickets than you win when you eventually do win, assuming a long enough timeline. Overall the money put into the system is more than the payout. It's a net tax on money-dumb people.

Oh yea, and the Russians are right.  The US will break up into several different quadrants after the dollar goes.  The confederacy will use silver and gold as money along with Texas, probably the north east too, while what happens to places like Cuckafornia is anyone's guess.

Most gambling is. Any casino or bookie almost always gets more money from a customer than the customer wins back. I agree a lottery gives some of the worst odds of getting anything back.

This tweet from Charlie Lee has surprised me:

https://twitter.com/SatoshiLite/status/997978007875670016

He was millionaire before Bitcoin? Surprising. Anyone knows what he was doing before?

I don't know what he was doing before, but now he's getting rekt on Twitter, apparently:

The gox trustee isn't allowed to dump any more coins unless the court orders him to. The last dump was because the court decided he needed more money to pay interest on all the fiat owed.

The trustee says he's almost sure civil rehabilitation will be approved, which means all those owed Bitcoins get paid back in Bitcoins. Although there might be another sale of a relatively small number of coins the vast majority are likely to get returned to gox's customers.

Yep, seems that way. If it goes to CR, we'll probably be looking at a year or more of lockup while all the claims are reassessed.

If we get CR, a lot of involuntary holders will likely dump at least a portion of their coins.

On the plus side, more of them will dump their btrash.

All the people at the peak of Mt. Stupid on that chart were all the big blockers and BCash shills.

SW and LN has since destroyed their ignorance and delusion.

Now can we get on with doing the same for all the mETH heads and all the ICO shitcoin lovers?

Lying dirtbags like this guy make me sick who just make up complete bullshit on the fly in order to try and shill for worthless craptocurrency to enrich themselves:



No, there is not only "one form of money".  What a joke.  The only real form of trade or non-violent transaction between humans is barter - saying I'll give you some random shit for some of your random shit.  The further you abstract away from barter, the bigger a scam it is.  It just so happens due to specialization of labor, humans decided to attempt to do that.  You can abstract away from barter in more ways than you can count; some work better than others. There is definitely not only one way to do so.

This douchebag seems to imply anyone who doesn't agree to join in on bitcoin's horrifically bad pyramid scheme distribution that would benefit him personally is somehow a bad person.  HAHA.  Fucking laughable.  If someone doesn't like that distribution and believes it's already been cornered by hedge funds or Goldman Sachs or whoever - which makes you a slave by agreeing to participate in it - they're perfectly within their rights to look elsewhere if it benefits them instead of obeying this idiot's commands to use only bitcoin.

Bitcoin has the most faggiest, lying, dishonest, piece of shit shills I've EVER seen in any type of asset.

His post makes zero sense from any perspective.  The fact he claims there can only be one form of money when shitcoins came oh, 13 billion or so years after silver and gold was another dumbfuck to the extreme blunder.  Let's also completely overlook the fact that silver and gold are real commodities, hence closely related to barter, while bitcoin is a fake commodity, so much further abstracted away from barter and inherently much greater of a scam.

GOOD JOB Torque the cat in failing to debunk a single thing I said.  You're scared to come near any points I type in this thread because you know they're all 100% true. That guy's Twitter post was 100% illogical bs.  The core of his argument could be summarized in no other way than:  "if you do not agree to buy into my pump and dump you are a bad person".

what, you actually thought those wouldn't be developed at the first opportunity? i mean, sure, we've had philosophical debates, stories, warnings and so forth about that idea for decades, if not centuries, but i'm sure these people think they know what they're doing when giving a machine the ability to choose who to kill, when, and how.

just because they're almost incomprehensibly WRONG doesn't mean there's any reason not to go for it!
