People and their feelings are irrational, to put it nicely. Once you can get meat of higher quality and lower cost than the trash served at super markets everybody will jump on it. People are always afraid of anything they don't see/understand, but once it's out in the wild adoption snowballs. Like with bikes. The internet. Or with Bitcorn.

I don't see "normal" lab meat not becoming mainstream, but I wonder if people would remain put off from human meat if the biggest deterrent (killing humans) is removed.

It seems gross to me on a more emotional/impulsive level, but rationally speaking I don't see anything speaking against it.

Actually I have always wanted to try human meat lol. There was a news story I remember about a chef in UK using human meat without the guests knowing and they seemed to like it. Maybe I have watched too much Hannibal, he seems to make some delicious human dishes tho.


I think it all depends on how it is marketed. Lab grown food sounds bad. Lets call it something better and healthy sounding.... What about.... Enhanced meat.
Yeah, it's funny how fancy words and marketing matter for the average consumer.

Yeah I agree it has to be marketed well for the masses to adopt it. I am sure they will find a way because lab grown meat seems to be the way to progress.
I'd keep a bunch of animals on my property if I could just prick them once every so often and get some delicious meat that way.

Would probably try human meat as well (under these circumstances) but not sure if the psychological factor would stop me from getting into it. When I was in Thailand I ordered a bunch of spring rolls and was surprised at their unusually sweet taste. Bit only half of one of and realized that I've been eating those white maggots or whatever they're called. Couldn't keep going after the fact, even though they were pretty delicious.

Vat grown meat is an amazing idea and I cannae wait. There's nothing but upside. I think in the future people will regard the animal eating industry as bizarrely as we view slavery today.
It is, and that's the main reason why I find vegans retarded. Even those that are with good intentions (which I don't believe all or even most of them are) are so intellectually lazy and short-sighted that they are stunting opportunity by stamping meat as the devil instead of finding ways to get the meat that virtually everybody loves in a more ethical and economical way.

Triple post inc. I've been printing money with altcoins the past few days, this very well may be the precursor for the next Bitcorn bull-run. The more alt-coins rally with Bitcorn down the more people will catch wind of what is going on and get interested in getting large amounts of Bitcorn to buy shitcoins with. Perhaps the winter won't be as long and cold as it seemed up until now.

It's not love if you were still unzipped from the previous video.

You guys are all veering into cats? What about the Bitcoin Bomb Threat? "Gimme $20,000 of BTC, or I'll blow up something. Somewhere."

https://news.google.com/search?q=bitcoin%20bomb%20threat&hl=en-US&gl=US&ceid=US%3Aen

I've only casually glanced, haven't found the public address. It would be interesting to see how many suckers paid.

Here we have it, high quality media report about the recent dump.  Undecided

Quote
Bitcoin plunged more than 6% to near $US3,300 a coin after the New York Police Department said that bomb threats that have been emailed around the country Thursday afternoon were made by someone demanding bitcoin

https://www.businessinsider.com.au/bitcoin-price-bomb-threats-demand-crypto-for-ransom-2018-12




Apparently multiple emails in several cities, states and possibly countries from what I can gather. MSM is of course milking it for all its worth. CNN was "forwarded" this email supposedly. This false flag is obviously being perpetrated by a nocoiner with nefarious at worst, slanderous at best intentions. No bitcoiner worth he's salt would touch outputs from that(such) address(s).



It's a good thing the guy is an idiot.

If the letter was more articulate then it would be an obvious CIA project and a bomb would actually be detonated.

 I'm seeing an awful lot of unnecessary and or misplaced commas in there.  Just saying.

Samsung to the rescue:

"After hearing about the trademarks for Samsung’s blockchain and cryptocurrency software, we decided to dig around a little deeper. We can confirm that the company is indeed developing one and that it may be launched with the Galaxy S10."

Will Trace's proofofkeys affect anything one way or another?
I am curious and leaning toward participation.
I think it will. I think we are already seeing fractional Reserve type situations at many of the exchanges. And if people demand to take delivery of their Bitcoin and actually hold their own keys not only could this have an interesting effect on the price. But it would improve the situation as people start using Bitcoin the way it was intended to be used instead of sort of commodity that can be traded on paper.

That was my point when talking about derivatives (future) settled in fiat vs. physical. Old schoolers might be used to paper - and I believe they are, after reading gentlemand's and bitserve's replies - and likely a few others who didn't feel like they needed to chime in since the point had been made already.

My take is: once crypto derivative investors get spoiled by the real deal, they won't be tricked into paper coin anymore - new school or old school alike. And once physically settled derivatives start to be seen more and more, they will drive paper stuff out of the market - or at least eating into their market share.

With some help from a few phone retailers, this may become a thing. Or half a thing at least. It's all good.

where to get such a hat?
You go on a mythical quest that involves staring at charts for days without sleeping or eating (drinking is allowed, but only alcoholic beverages), until you can see your spirit animal in the candles.

I stare at charts since 2011.. quite enough?

and guess which animal i'll see  Grin

So I am trying out Deribit for the first time. Their onsite chart does not retain any indicators or anything. It keeps resetting. The user interface is sloppy. Easier to put in a stop market than a limit order. I can only hope there is no downtime or "lag" as with Bitmex. Still kind of a disappointment if you think about Bitmex now being on Tabtrader...
