firing into the ground can ricochet or create a spray of spall depending on what it hits. not good when its near you.

when firing into the air, when it comes down its just at normal falling speed as its expended all its energy on the way up. wont hurt anymore than a pebble of equivalent weight falling on you. also the direction i fire in is literally square miles of woods. no houses at all. so i fire maybe 10 degree from vertical in that direction.

A 'pebble' falling from several kilometers (without any acceleration except for gravity) will kill you I think. At least that's what I remember my calculation of over a decade ago. I've seen news articles too of (unintended) casualties from kalashnikovs being fired straight into the air in celebration in the middle east.

air resistance will be the limiting factor. i am unsure of the actual speed, depends on the bullet weight and size. i do know people who have been hit by falling birdshot (myself included, i do a lot of skeet shooting) and its nothing. but those pellets are smaller.

those kalashnikovs fire a heavy bullet. but were they indeed fire straight up? ive seen most fired maybe 30-40 degrees from vertical but thats just what i see on the news. not doubting you but all it takes is a slightly more horizontal trajectory and it will still have a lot of energy when the bullet hits the ground, as it wouldnt of expended its initial energy gaining altitude.

It seems you are right to feel some caution:

Dumbest thing I've seen today.

Storing coins means storing your keys. If you do that, your computer can break, USB lost, 6 times if you want. You'll still have your coins.

Just another worthless cloud shill. I always like the people who go on about how "secure" the cloud is. Sun used to go on about "One arrow, one target" while those of us in the know called it "one egg, one basket".

Eh, whatever. Another case of blame someone else for failure.

interesting info, thanks for the link (i followed a couple more from that one too).

kalashnikovs are the goto weapon for large parts of the world, and they do back a wallop with a heavy bullet. getting hit with a heavy bullet that size would not be pleasant at all.

i mainly carry a handgun in the woods and thats what i would be firing in the air as a warning shot for the wild dogs and such. and even though i know its miles of woods i think i will at least consider trying to fire into a tree from now on. its just habit to never, ever fire a round with no real target as if i miss the tree that bullet can go a long way. and while there should be no one in my woods.. still..

I’d rather have my private keys engraved on a 12 inch metal dildo & implanted in my rectum for 23 hours a day, only taking it out to shit before putting it back in than have my bitcoin’s on any exchange.

Mind you that if you une half inch high words you can store 2 wallets on your dildo.

It's even more efficient than an exchange.

yup it is. i own 13 acres, all woods. my firing range has a nice hill for a backstop. outside of that i wont fire unless i absolutely have identified the target and i consider it an immediate threat. although i have fired into the air when the occasional wild dog or such shows too much interest in me or the wife.

all in all its mainly a lot of practice rounds to keep my skills honed.
Firing in the air always bothered me. It has to come down, possibly on top of someone. Why not fire into the ground?

firing into the ground can ricochet or create a spray of spall depending on what it hits. not good when its near you.

13 acres !!!, you can practice many types of shooting. Wink

Last year I was a millionaire (in dollars).

And Maybe now a more inceased position in BTC?
Better BE

Grin
Not much Mic, not as planned.
I had quite a few unexpected expenses that required some fiat money that then I was not able to re-acquire and re-invest.
I am good anyway since with the current prices I should have a bit more time  Wink

Yeah a man gotta take care of his personal business first of course, hope you can re-invest as you wish the coming days,weeks, months etc

I also wanted to check a Bitcoin accessories shop named "too free to fail" but apparently... it failed at staying in business.
So my last stop was another ATM on Nathan Rd. in the W Plaza... actually there were two ATMs in there !












you did found some cool BTC stuff out there ..... much more as in belgium

probably here its only me and the Belgians that I know that are the crypto-stuff @ Belgium      "joke" for other Belgian WO readers Roll Eyes

Bitcoin bottomed around 0400 hours GMT on 14 January 2015.  

We are now past that time in this cycle.  If the fractal holds, we have bottomed.  

I just bought again. 


Did my eye's read that correctly?

I'm a little bit ashamed at myself at how horrible I am at prognosticating anything crypto-related, but the current issues with ETH, overall, has led me the seriously ponder; "Is ETH truly and honestly dead, and it just doesn't know it yet ?"

I can't see how it survives 2019 without plunging to at least half it's current valuation.

It almost feels like all the individual elements that have plagued ETH over the last couple years, have recently come together, and left it teetering on the edge of being declared a failed project.

The fact that it's nigh-impossible for the average joe to run a full, modern ETH node is a catastrophic oversight in retrospect.

Bitcoin has a valid use cases TODAY, thus value and incentive to hold it and use it TODAY.

ETH has ??

Nothing but future promises on supposed future use cases for solutions for problems that don't really exist (because idealized, ivory tower bullshit, not reality), therefore no incentive to hold it or use it TODAY nor in the FUTURE. It's valuation at any time has zero to do with its utility, which is really nil.

I'll have to disagree on that one Bob. Crypto doesn't follow this kind of logic imo.

My issue with ETH over XRP, is that - IMO anyway - ETH's growth is on track to surpass hardware/computing capabilities due to the shoddy design of their software.

XRP doesn't have that problem as it's all centralized with no extravagant computing requirements.

Again, I'm awful at this sort of analysis, so... yeah.

yeah, firing into the air around people is attempted assault, stupid and dangerous
