Idk. This is meme kinda true. But there is a huge range of applications out there where we dont NEED blockchain, but it would still be really cool!

I would love to have my vehicle ownership represented by a colored coin. I could use a trezor like device to start it up and no one would ever be cracking that security. I could transfer ownership via blockchain and it would be amazingly smooth and so much easier and nicer than a traditional title transfer. I could allow someone limited access to it like if my buddy wanted to borrow my car on Tuesday I could just temporarily authorize his digital signature with my digital signature and I could do it remotely.

Yes and in a perfect world, this is how it should work. You should have the power to transfer title of ownership of something you own directly to another party without a third party in the middle. But that's the problem. When state-run Bureaus of Motor Vehicles have centralized control of title issuance, transfer, and registration of motor vehicles, and of course make revenue off of that activity, then why would they ever relinquish that power back to the individual? They would make so many excuses has to why that activity should be state-run and not decentralized.

Also, I wouldn't doubt that state-run BMV's will eventually try to implement some sort of blockchain solution behind the scenes as a 'calling card' to say that they are trying to change and do something. But I don't think it would be more efficient that what they have today.

Who cares? Technology is a genie that once let out of the bottle can not be put back in. It will be with us forever. Bureaucrats and systems of record and title transfer come and go. In the long march of time even mountains are reduced to dust by the simple flowing of water. Technology is like the water and Bureaucrats are not even close to being mountains.

No I get what you are saying. Perhaps blockchain will eventually find it's way into a few other places here and there where it makes sense to have it.

Though if the next 30 years go by and I still can't legally transfer a car title to another person for free via a decentralized blockchain solution, it won't mean much sweat to me as I'll probably be close to death anyway, lol.

Edit: Regarding the photos, those I have no comment on. They could have been faked, sure; the actual landings though, I don't believe so.

exactly

As someone noted above, the whole Apollo program was primarily a propaganda/PR effort.  My theory is that the pictures came back fucked up, over exposed, out of focus...whatever, and the marketing people were like "what the fuck is this?  we can't use this." and then they did what marketing people do...

I agree this is the most plausible explanation.

I saw it live on TV, as an 9 year old. It was just real. No point discussing that. I also read about the Tonkin incident, as a 6 year old. That was clearly a false flag. Nothing has changed about these facts.

If it does happen in the next 30 years it will be because political jurisdictions are in a sort of competition with one another. I wouldn't be surprised to see smaller jurisdictions implement as much of this kinda stuff as they can in order to attract expats.

A tech analyst on CNBC video talking about Bitcoin price action like it's a serious financial market asset.

I can remember when the MSM had nothing positive to say about Bitcoin, and certainly no serious trading discussion.

IoT

I could see a sort of blockchain existing between a companies till systems to take care of loyalty points. I gain 5 points in a transaction in London. I go to Manchester and spend them at that till in another transaction. All tracked and managed independently of any human effort. Only they need a process to add and verify any new tills and its effortless for them.

Going on the average age of posters in this thread, there's no longer such a thing as a boner to be ashamed of any more for most. All of them are a gift.

There is a strong correlation between conspiracy theorists and low cognitive capability.  Make of that what you will.  
hmmm. many conspiracys are later found to be true. wake up people

"Many" = "<0.01%"

uh...no

However, regarding the moon landings specifically, it is true that many of the Apollo photos were faked or altered, which in retrospect was an extremely bad move as it has provided endless grist for the denier mill.

I find it very difficult to believe the moon landings were faked.

Considering the political environment of the time, the USA was in a race against a technically competent opponent full of very smart people, don't you think Russia, China, or any other country capable of doing so, would have called out the USA immediately? Embarrass the shit out of the USA by proving mathematically/showing that they did not in fact do what they said? I've never read or heard of such.

Edit: Regarding the photos, those I have no comment on. They could have been faked, sure; the actual landings though, I don't believe so.
Acquire sufficiently powerful telescope.
Look at the moon rover.

It's weird to think of myself as young in the post-mid-30s bracket, but I have noticed the same thing.
