I remember in btc-e's trollbox people were saying $40k next year when the price was $1000 in 2014. After 4 years we reached $20k.

Now people are saying $100k in 2020. That means we'll see $50k in 2023 or 2022.



Aktivation occurring //^$20K then rocket up to $250K+ *speedbumps kaint faze me brah


weeeeeee

Unless this is photosynthesis (maybe it is since there is a quant coming in), free energy of reactants should always be HIGHER than products for reaction to proceed spontaneously (especially in case of exergonic reactions). In case of endergonic reactions, extra energy is required.

One thing of note is that enzymes are known to reduce activation energy "bump" required to proceed.
Another thing is that IF free energy of product(s) is LOWER than reactants, then sometimes reaction could still proceed due to quantum tunneling (instead of bumping to overcome activation energy "hill", simply go through the "mountain").

In fact, the latter scenario is potentially viable for the whole universe to disappear IF we are not currently at the lowest energy state.
In such case, a "bubble" of "new vacuum" could appear and spread with a speed of light, literally annihilating current vacuum in its wake.
Thankfully, current calculations make this scenario not very likely to occur.

In fact, the latter scenario is potentially viable for the whole universe to disappear IF we are not currently at the lowest energy state.

I think it makes more sense that the net energy of the universe is zero and the macro world is roughly the same as the quantum world exhibiting the same quantum fluctuation where matter pops up out of seeming nothingness but is destined to annihilate itself and return to the void to not violate conservation of energy, possibly repeating ad infinitum.  This makes the universe essentially a giant, reciprocating trash compactor that you have to figure out some way to escape/transcend from, although maybe not possible.  

Segue - people that claim the universe is a simulation so they're trying to to jailbreak themselves out of the sandbox (I think Elon Musk is one of these people...who knows).  If the universe is just a simulation, that would be entirely solipsistic, Descartes material where there would be no real reason for other actors to exist at all and the person that is typing this to you now would probably either be yourself, or an evil God that is trying to contain you, trick you, and prevent you from escaping.

Broadway and 47th. New York City.(Times Square.)

I've never been there, in NY, but you can read the phrase in Spanish "Dos Caminos" on the sign of lights. What makes me think it's not NY.

Edit: I retract. There is indeed a restaurant called that.

Yup, the "Dos Caminos" sign was the best hint. Then google search and google street view are your friends:



This is the closest I could get to the angle of the original photo (it was took a few meters behind and from a lower position though) and what leads me to believe nearest intersection is 48th and not 47th.

The "wall" is probably the Broadway street sign (or a hotdog cart)

P.S.: WHat took more time is that there are several Dos Caminos in NY but, again, google street view is your friend here.

Another clue was in the initial picture, there was the hint of a red glow reflecting off of it. In the 2nd clue, there is a hint of green reflecting off the street. So I knew that it was a place with a lot of bright lights. Last night I was hunting on google maps in Times Square and I was also searching downtown Las Vegas.

If it had been taken from Las Vegas I would probably had immediately recognised it, so I quickly discarded that option. There was more hints that could have led somewhere had someone knew manhattan well enough (not me) such as the sewer lids, the curbs, road signals, etc.... but for me did nothing and it could be anywhere in the world.... I really needed the Dos Caminos hint.

Nice and entertainment challenge Smiley

May be!!
BTC Not moving fast enough, corrective structure may be incomplete.
Might bounce to 6450 first then make its way down to 6050-6100

Congrats Bitserve! and honorable mentions to Bones and Xyzzy who were so damn close and Gab0 who first spotted the exact photo location

Fucking Amazing Sleuthing guys.  I am really impressed.  Never expected anyone to get the exact location of the newspaper stand where the shot was taken.   And when I posted the very first picture and people were saying New York, I was baffled as to how you could possibly figure that out from the photo.

There is actually a sign saying West 47th Street in the background between the red and blue shirted men but I think too blurry to read with the image compression.



Spirall and Mic you both instantly guessed NY from the very first picture. How did you manage to do that?
