Did you account for air drag, or did you only consider gravitational acceleration?

I took an average pebble out my garden. It weighs 10 grams and has a mean diameter of about 20 mm. If we assume it were perfectly spherical with a drag coefficient of 0.47, travelling through air with standard density of 1.225 kg/m^3, and plug the figures into the formula for terminal velocity we get: sqrt((2*0.01*9.81)/(1.225*(3.14*0.01^2)*0.47)) = 33 m/s or 119 km/h. If we pipe that into E = 1/2*m*v^2 for energy, we get ~5.5 J or ~4 ft-lb.

Or in other words, I need Bitcoin to do something exciting.

Last year I was a millionaire (in dollars).

means that you had (or perhaps have?) more than 53 (in bitcoins)



hahaha, I like how you always like to make people recognise how many BTC they do have. As a penalty I will say my educated guess is that you have, with a high degree of certainty, an amount between 40 and 150 BTC. And, if I had to guess the exact amount, I would say around 60 right now... including alt/shitcoins and trading fiat.

Of course this is all just my own speculation with absolutely no factual resemblance to reality.

P.S.: I have less than that... and that is a FACT.

Hey... These are not baaaaad discussion points, right?  

Take with a grain of salt, any representations regarding amount of bitcoin that you believe wo participants have, including yours truly, and surely if a member makes some kind of assertion such as: " I used to be a millionaire, but now I am not" then there is a certain amount of personal disclosure that has already taken place with that post.  So, in that regard, the person has either wittingly or not opened him/her/itself up for further scrutiny (or elaboration on such topic).

I used to be a bit more revealing in some of my personal bitcoin/altcoin and fiat holding/accumulation details, but I think that I have become a bit better at more obscurity - even though from time to time, I do conclude that some personal disclosure(s) is(are) necessary in order to make certain points in an "at stake" way, rather than pure pie in the sky speculation.  

To the extent that it matters to points raised in this line of thought, I will neither confirm nor deny whether you are in the ballpark regarding my "exact amount,"  but I still don't mind such discussion.  Remember towards the end of 2017 and through a decent portion of 2018, there were a lot of posters speculating on how they were going to spend their free-time in the upcoming years and whether a Lambo was going to be part of their future.  Surely, some of those discussions have become less prevalent, but I still believe that the price performance of bitcoin in late 2017 allowed me to have some more freedom in making certain financial decisions and even expedited some of my push towards closing down my business - which took place at the end of 2018 - even though I have some ongoing wrapping up that I am still doing  - progress is being made - which includes more location independence for me, as scary (and seemingly slow progress) as that can be sometimes.

thats a guess on who of those 2?
Roll Eyes

On JJG of course, because he is always trying to make other people say it Smiley


Again... I might be perfectly wrong. If I *really* knew it, I would say NOTHING.

I would take issue with the characterization:  "he is always trying to make other people say it."   If I fish through my memories, it seems that I am merely following through with a topic that has already been opened by the poster, and frequently, personal holdings, strategies
 and balancing of various competing interests remains an interesting topic for me.  Therefore, if some WO poster mentions a topic of interest, then I don't mind exploring such topic further; especially, if I believe such poster is making genuine representations.  On the other hand, sometimes posters might be making shit up, and a few probing questions will reveal that they are not really dealing with actual personal considerations, and instead trolling us.

Perfectly spherical bullets are way different to regular bullets that end up tumbling as soon as they lose the rotational speed with a way higher air drag.

Much of the penetration of a regular gunshot is thanks to its rotational speed. That's why pipeguns are not that effective, even at very short distance, unless properly directed against unprotected vital points (neck, eyes, temple, etc).

Yuh I'm dead impressed gentlemand didn't run off to Southend with Arriemoller's £1.60 +p&p. He could have settled with a gypsy woman and rubbed crystal balls while she cackled. But no, he did a trustworthy thing that one time.

He actually asked me to pay when the paper arrived, so I could have taken the paper and run.
Although he's got my address so he might have come for me.

Fire in front of the dog.

that would have very good odds of seriously hurting it via ricochet/spall, and hurting it is worse than killing it.

i have no wish to harm any animal, much less kill it. if it looks ready to attack, fine, dead dog. but if its pondering the situation ("hmm.. is that thing good to eat?") scaring it off is fine by me. scaring and hurting it via spall so it suffers is not.
Well firing in the air has a chance of killing a human, even if a small one.

Look there is no polite solution to dangerous situations like that. Pick the one that has the least chance of harming humans, not other animals.

as i said, in that direction there is nothing but trees for several miles. literally. nothing. at all. i could say more but it would give too much away. i fly my drone out that way sometimes. a over mile out and its the most uninteresting scenery ever.

anyway in a semi populated area its a consideration. here? ill not worry. especially as warning shots are pretty rare. the odds of one of those very infrequent rounds hitting anyone are about as zero as one can get.
