You better stop taking drugs, because your brain is becoming scrambled with really improbable scenarios.


I was huh errrm askin' for a friend?  Cheesy Cheesy


 Cheesy Cheesy JJ , you cannot be pointing the finger in the scrambled brain department, you are hardly the most succinct of fellows and you have scrambled my brain a few times, without drugs  Cheesy

Besides old chap you are completely missing the point..... it is a thought experiment

Also TBH I was hoping for some amusing answers...  come on JJ play along Smiley

Likely quoting yourself...
I find that kind of wit delicious, though. If he wasn't one of the most merited peeps on the whole board, I'd gladly throw him one for it.

I refill my short in the high 4K and worry a bit when it hits $5k. Then hit a lot of physical limit orders on the way down and then scramble to the bank when it drops under my last limit order in the $500s.

It drops to $350 and becomes stable for a day........... What are you guys doing at this point and up to this point? what is your next move? are you rekt? are you happy, are you trading hand over fist? are you drinking? are you jumping out of a window?

The cost basis for the rest of my stash is zero.

I'm riding this bitch into the dirt, if that's where she decides to face-plant me.

Will be looking to increase my holdings if prices dip below $1,000 USD.


yep...same...at least with 53% of my stash I made on the original KNC Jupiter BTC miner.

dumped 13% the other 24% is also on HODL, above the other 53% of my hoard ...to dump, if needed.

 I have enough for my next 2 years of retirement in cash this year, I've dumped AND ride the 53% HOLD left into the dirt as well.

at least with all this I now have 'complete clarity' on WTF I'm doing...kinda odd after 5 years in BTC and crypto. Smiley

but ack! 13% of hoard is down...24% is in limbo for dumping depending on future prices and 53% is as you say, HODL till dirt ie...zero out of spite.

I imagine the way my luck is going, next week craig wright will produce private keys and prove he is Satoshi..just to further drive me to despair.

would be damn tough ..to get any $$$ or crypto swap for other coming up coins..in the future..retired.. these whole crypto altcoins and BTC was

supposed to carry me for the next 2.5years, left till my  retirement without touching my BTC hoard and/or my traditional investments and social security

Then the unthinkable happens... and it drops again

to $530.....

Markets are haywire, trading platforms freezing up, going off line, metric sites are spewing out jibberish


On Finex it flashcrashes to $75

Coinbase flashcrashes to $50 and goes offline


The price rises to $750 and stabilises for 6 hours


It drops to $350 and becomes stable for a day........... What are you guys doing at this point and up to this point? what is your next move? are you rekt? are you happy, are you trading hand over fist? are you drinking? are you jumping out of a window?


(Bonus question- Bitcoin SV OR Bcash or Ripple or Doge or  ETH or some other shitcoin is simultaneously going parabolic and either Craig or Rog or Vitalik are on youtube shit talking about how they are now number one, what are you doing? did you FOMO SV or Bcash, Doge or ETH or rando shitcoin? or no because rekt, rage quit, drunk etc) (EDIT for arguments sake lets say that the coin that has gone parabolic has already hit $5000)

Sorry I know its sordid and dark.... but I am curious to your answers  Cheesy  especially if they are amusing


Jeez, how many crazy things are happening in this scenario? Is Kool-Aid man going to bust through the walls too?

I'd probably say eff this and go to sleep.

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you 
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Im not a captain but I shall go down with it.

Funny story. Someone present heard it via sideband. Asked an appropriate leading question.

You better stop taking drugs, because your brain is becoming scrambled with really improbable scenarios.

I was huh errrm askin' for a friend?  Cheesy Cheesy

Nice attempt at a recovery.  I don't believe you.

Cheesy Cheesy JJ , you cannot be pointing the finger in the scrambled brain department, you are hardly the most succinct of fellows and you have scrambled my brain a few times, without drugs  Cheesy

I doubt that scrambled brain is merely based on length of posts, but instead being in the ballpark of reasonable discussion points.

I will grant you that reason does vary between peeps, but some levels of speculation are just out there way too much.

My posts scrambling your brain, might be a different kind of variation of reason, but would not necessarily mean that the post had been based on some really "out there" scenario, like you just presented.... trolls do that sometimes, by bringing up really out there scenarios... by the way, I don't believe that you are a troll based on this post from today or what I recall about your posting track record.


Besides old chap you are completely missing the point..... it is a thought experiment

I am certainly open to thought experiments, and I suppose if the thought experiment was a bit more realistic, then I would have been more than willing to make an attempt at responding to each and every one of its points (like d_eddie did, seeming charitable guy in this case)


Also TBH I was hoping for some amusing answers...  come on JJ play along Smiley

Let's leave this one to other peeps who want to respond... Hopefully, you will provide your response after a few other people respond  (presuming that a few other peeps will respond, like d_eddie already entertained you).   Personally, I think that I engage in enough speculating and typing in response to what I believe to be more likely scenarios that are being proposed (and my attempts to agree or disagree with them) including my other all-over-the-place responses.

I feel a bit more warm and fuzzy about Hueristic, after reading this post, even though s/he/it has been posting some decently sized nonsense in recent times.   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I just hodl. I wouldn't buy anything else, regardless if it was number one. If BTC goes below 1000, crypto is done anyway, I would just forget about it and live my life.

I agree that V8 certainly traps me into meriting him more than I would like to.  And, I will concede that a large number of the active WO posters are guilty of various kinds of ways to quote ourselves and our prior posts.  On a personal preference level, I do kind of give more credit to the posters who are more subtle about it.

You are up tight sometimes JJ

Well, I understand the question making people feel uncomfortable, but I never said it was realistic , I have stated quite clearly how I see things most likely playing out..

The question in short form would perhaps be more palatable i.e “BTC capitulates more than you think possible- what do you do?” Which I think is an entirely reasonable and realistic question to ask.. more so one I expect everyone that participates in this thread would have thought of.

Then that way people could have filled in their own price levels , but I was just adding colour to the scene because amusing
 
Also I picked  the price levels purposely for shock factor for sure ... that was part of the question , capitulation that you are alright with is not capitulation, and  is not what I was asking about ? I was specifically asking about what if it does the unexpected... surely that’s not taboo? We are all old enough in this game for sure! Also I did clearly label as ay thought experiment , in my defence.

Tbh this thread is a perfect place to ask the question

Personally I am bullish long term, but bearish on shorter time frame  -  I see potential for a rally and then a rout as explained in earlier serious posts, if I am honest I have spent a little time since wondering about the scenario myself...

From a risk reward point of view in all honesty there is only 100% to the downside and there is in my view a easily achievable 1000% to the upside long term.

No brainier.

Coincidentally, it is partly because people are so certain it can’t do the unexpected, and seem to think they have a handle on the bottom  that I asked the question , like I said if everyone is happy then it’s hardly capitulation, and besides I just wanted to see what my OG WO buddies would say in response to the horror scenario.

You guys musta figured I am a pretty dark humoured individual by now 😀

Didn’t mean to ruffle any feathers thou’
