So, basically there are about 12 people that are "pure white" that will be waging war against all those that are not pure.


I remember a wonderful show that diagnosed the DNA of English bigots. One said you could only be English if you had two English parents for 1000 years which is inconceivable. The majority were mashups of Mongolian, Native American, Arabian and more. Only one was pure N European. Then one of the subjects tried to sue for being exposed as a dirty ethnic in disguise.

Man is evolutionarily predisposed to tribal morality. People randomly assigning themselves to tribes is as near universal a human trait as there is, I should think. One of the deep oddities of certain brands of individualism is how they randomly become collectivist at skin tone and border crossings. The humans just can't help themselves.

Just a thought.

This is true. When I go to America I 'become' a Vietnam vet. I claim as many discounts as possible and yell 'you weren't there, you don't understand, man' at... everyone.

There will be a new bull run with ore without the ETF's.

The (SEC) govt. officials know it!  They are just trying to hold the rocket down while they wait for their Coinbase account to accept their huge inflated (worthless) cash deposits.


Nobody cares for ETFs. Its just fuel for FOMO. Let it run.

Collectivism is a good sign of weakness. It shows that you are not mentally apt enough to see people as individuals with their own thoughts and ideals. Instead you lazily put people into groups based on whatever criteria you come up with to ease your weak brain from needing to think too much.

Grouping people together based upon melanin count is just ridiculous. Melanin changes. It would make more sense to group people based upon eye color which doesn't change (though it can be masked). Pick a trait that doesn't change with sun exposure. Ear size? Hmm, that changes as you age. Best to go with eye color. That's about the only thing about your body that doesn't change throughout your life.

Then you can put in your mind "everyone with green eyes is...X...", "everyone with brown eyes is...Y...". Of course, whatever eye color you have you need to define it as being superior.

Perhaps that's why people choose the date they are born to group themselves. That doesn't change. "Geminis are all...X...!", etc.

That was a strange bet for Erik to make.  These kinds of time captures can remind us of some of the true colors of others, who are currently acting like staunch bitcoin advocates, but they can have diverging histories that put their integrity into question.

I guess that in the time frame around July 2017, Erik was a kind of bitcoin naysayer because he was whoring himself out for the various forks, including the segwit2x fork and also hedging with bcash.. and furthermore there were a few other hardforks being threatened around that time - that subsequently lost steam against the real deal bitcoin..

Of course, there are folks still hedging their bets with bcash, hoping to keep that lame project alive.. and perhaps some of the more prominent bitcoin folks are peeling off from their bcash support too.. though of course it's a mixed bag because sometimes you cannot tell for sure if a supposed bitcoin supporter is just going to go on some kind of rampage to support a bitcoin attack vector rather than attempting to work within bitcoin improvement channels.

Don’t believe the hype.  It was never going to happen.

Buying opportunity of a lifetime coming.  Patience.  

+1 WOsMerit.

You alleged bitcoin bulls, seem to be hopium for something, and suggesting that there is some kind of certainty.






Maybe that is how a bull slowly transforms into a bear, or goes roach, or BJA?

or turns into something totally different.. .like a bulldog?

So the buy of a lifetime was 78XX USD?  Cheesy I missed my opportunity to buy buy buy in late 2014 and early 2015. Now that was truly the buying opportunity of a lifetime. That was a great deal. I know there were even better deals in 2013 and before, but that ship sailed by the time that I became aware.

Within the past month, there was a real decent BTC buying opportunity at $5,777, but even if you missed the exact bottom of that particular BTC price correction, there were a large number of days in which you could have bought some BTC in the low $6ks.

That is why the BTC HODLers and accumulators who are not employing margins or shorting systems, develop other seemingly more reliable systems to BTFD, and even though we don't know exactly when we got the bottom, but if we keep working at our system to BTFD (and don't play with rent money or other money that you need to live on for 6 months or so) then we are likely going to be in a very decent set up to profit greatly from that practice with the passage of time, even if, from time to time, it could take a few years for our profits to really play out.... but bitcoin seems to be a kind of great long game rather than one in which we should play around with shorting or selling on the way down and hoping for lower and those kinds of less preferred and seemingly gambling strategies.

What does that mean, exactly?  Maybe Wo-bot, aka mymenance, should explain such nonsense before folks get too worked up into reading into such hieroglyphics?

Bbut... but Anon, it's like when you want a car engine to 'scale' to higher horsepower and speed, the most straightforward way is to simply add more cylinders!  V32 engines for everyone so we can get places faster, amiright?  /s

Stupid analogy is stupid.

If you want a transportation analogy, a closer analog would be passenger demand for a certain train route exceeding capacity solved by adding more passenger cars to the train.

Still a stupid analogy, but an order of magnitude closer to the situation at hand.

https://txstreet.com

?

TxStreet.com

TxStreet.com is a Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin (BTC) live transaction visualizer inspired by txhighway.com. This website helps users understand the mempool and blocksize in an easy way.

When a new transaction is broadcasted to either the BCH or BTC network, a person appears and attempts to board a bus. If the mempool size is lower than the block size limit, then they board a bus and wait for the next block to be found. If the mempool is bigger than the block size limit, then they will have to wait in line before boarding a bus.

The movement speed of the person represents how high a fee they paid in sat/B. The size of the person represents the size of the transaction in bytes.

Segwit transactions will board the segwit bus.

BCH currently has 32 buses representing a 32MB block size limit. BTC has two buses representing the 1MB block size limit and 4MB block weight (segwit).

When a block is found, both BTC buses will leave for the blockchain. For BCH, only the required number of buses will leave. For exmaple, if there is a 1.7MB block found, only 2 BCH buses will leave for the blockchain. If there is a 31.5 MB block found, all 32 BCH buses will leave.

This is a beta version of this website. Many more features are planned.

LOL genius. turn on the sound too.

I watched it for about 30 minutes, and it looks like nearly a pure fictional representation about what is happening or likely to happen.  Sure, it captures some ideas about what what could happen in some fictitional pie in the sky world, but its extreme fictitiousness causes it to be more propaganda rather than a worthy attempt at education. 

Furthermore, when the busses leave the station, that process is so slow and belabored that it hardly captures any semblance of reality..

I had to shut it off, who's got time for such nonsensical fiction?.

Gotta give it a thumbs down for being nearly pure bullshit.

Yeah, I think it has been an interesting review. Even if his intentions would have been (who knows) to try demonstrate some serious flaws, we should thank him for the effort.

LN still have a long way to go in terms of usability but as an initial beta deployment it seems to be living up to expectations.
