LFC encouraged me to step by, so I figured I had to take a look Smiley

It can be boring in periods of sideways price action but there are some clued up posters in here, some good chart analysis but best of all when we’re in an epic bull run this place is great Cheesy

The memes, the happiness is really something.

Here’s to the next epic bull run, probably 6-12 months after the next halvening Smiley

You have sunk to the low levels of scheduling our next bull run.   Cry Cry Cry  I am sad.

Come on JJG, pull up a stool. I’m waiting for you at the bar Wink

True... I am just giving you a bit of shit about your scheduling of our next "epic."    

By the way, I don't want to be party poop, but even though I agree with your that there are really decent odds that the next epic is going to take place on or before your scheduled timeframe.. (probably odds in the 60% arena..), I hope that you (and everyone else) are (is) psychologically and financially prepared in the event that it does not happen?

I have my own business, I’m comfortable (not rich) financially. I just see bitcoin as my way out of you know what I mean.

My way out of having a mortgage, running my business, employing people, working 7 days a week.

I’ll be fine if bitcoin doesn’t moon but I’ll be a hell of a lot happier if it does.

For the record - My savings (net worth) is much more bitcoin than fiat heavy. I know it’s stupid but it’s a risk I’m willing to take.

We're in a similar boat. I'm the General Manager of our family business. I make good money, am largely my own boss, etc. However, it still sucks. It's work, can be stressful, the hours can be long, and it is definitely not how I would be spending most of my time, given the choice.

Also, my BTC bags are much heavier too. The way I see it, when BTC explodes again, I retire. Or it doesn't, and I have to keep being a working stiff til I'm 62+, like everyone else.
If my bags were primarily in fiat and other investments, I would be working til I'm 62+ anyway. And then if Bitcoin exploded, I'd just have a slightly more comfortable retirement.

The way I see it, I'm betting a bit of possible retirement comfort for the opportunity to retire 20+ years earlier. Seems like a reasonable bet to me.

Our situations sound close to identical info. I’m in my early 30’s, I’ve always hated structure, always had a bit of a sense of entitlement. I really don’t want to work until my 60’s but I will if I have to.

I think everything will be OK though, bitcoin will moon & we’ll all be laughing.

McAfee for president 2020.

McAfee claims he has been indicted by U.S. tax authorities and plans to run his campaign from a boat in international waters.

He looks really coked out on that video.



You imagine, McAfee and company, on the yacht at night in international waters....., better not to think about it, we will wait BTC 100k. Wink

That is not a fucking yacht, that's a cruiser or a warship or a titanic.  Grin

This one is a yacht:



And this one:



All I want in this life is a fine sailboat (Bavaria or something similar, no need to be  any bigger than 45ft., I feel like 36ft would do just fine for me.) and enough time to explore the world. I can get the damn thing right now but I don't have the time. Still gotta work. :/

I do love the look of all these yachts, I just want a huge house & a holiday home plus a couple of fast cars though. Having a yacht seems so much hard work.

Any way - patiently waiting for moon time!

Next thing we'll hear about him is his kidnapping.

Anyone in the first world who got a STEM degree in the last 100 years, and is otherwise employable, has had no problem finding a high paying job. I'd wager the same will be true for the next 50 years, anyway.

If you didn't go to college, or received a bachelor's degree in something useless, like psychology or art history, then you're obviously in for a rougher ride. And that's all on you.

This is obviously not true because I just quoted employment stats for engineers in Canada the other day and it was like 30% employment for new grads.  Going into STEM doesn't guarantee you jack shit now.  I guess you can make the excuse for such abysmal stats that their jobs were all shipped to China or something, and that everyone needs to apply 2000% tariffs to all Chinese goods to fix it, but it's what the current situation is.

As for the nature of capitalism, capitalism is just a synonym for natural selection.  The purpose of natural selection is basically for the strong to kill off the weak, or encroach upon their territory and resources, exploit them, starve them to death.  In a collective arrangement known as a nation, knowing what the purpose of capitalism is, do you think anyone would actually choose pure, anything goes, unadulterated capitalism if the results were giant swathes of the population agreeing to be economically exterminated or enslaved?  80% or higher of the population?

All the jobs being outsourced to China, India, or wherever through global labor arbitrage is about as capitalistic as it gets.  This is capitalism - monopoly men and middlemen exploiting and killing off everyone.  A nation is a type of collective agreement, typically always between an ethnocentric collective - because all non-ethnocentric nations collapse.  If people are coming together to create any type of collective or rules based game, they're typically NOT going to agree to play one with such bad results.

The purpose of a nation is for ordinary, valuable, or contributing members of that society to survive, not to try and kill them off on purpose.  This is how systems like national socialism from the Nazis arise, because capitalism isn't even possible if you're going to have any form of national government.  The second you create any form of national govt that can impose it's will on everyone, capitalism is over.  You can either have pretend capitalism, which is just going to be some klepocratic, crony capitalistic, too big to fail monopolies that are your new slave owners, or you can have national socialism where instead of the government making all public policy based upon "what is good for the crony capitalism corporation", policy is based upon "what is good for the common white man".

It sounds extreme, but the vast majority of nations already practice some form of this, because like I said, pure, unadultered capitalism doesn't have a very viable conclusion.  The breakup of monopolies I would consider a national socialist ideal.  The govt stopped doing so because it drifted away from national socialism and the greater good of white people towards crony capitalism.  Free enterprise and everything else would still exist as well, just not to the extreme detriment of the whole.

How fucking dumb.  Both the kid and his lawsuit should be thrown out on his ass, and slapped in the face.  Furthermore, that frivolous lawsuit should not have survived long enough to even have gotten one line of actual publicity.  Grow some balls, gaylord.   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

By the way, look at my gay looking avatar.  I could give a shit, if posters get distracted into irrelevant nonsense personal attacks based on an avatar... and surely, such attacks have happened, and do I give much shits, except for mentioning how distracted those folks are?

Dump incoming?

Or will it do nothing to the price as we expected it to be rejected any way.

Edit - It’s 2019 JJG. There’s no stigma attached to being gay now. The closer is ajar, waiting for you to burst out Wink

The dump isn't even that bad (yet?). Maybe you're right and it's all priced in... Additionally, voluntary withdrawal much better perceived than rejection.

Everyone who isn't a complete moron knows the bitcoin market is the world's greatest scam as long as the crooked exchange Bitfinex is the market maker for price.  I'm not sure how ANY legislator could pass anything without nuking Bitfinex off the face of the planet first.  And where's all the other volume at?  Why...the useless scam bucketshop Bitmex.

Bucketshops are fucking illegal in most aspects of finance and countries in the world.  How are you going to bring anything to the mainstream that's run almost entirely by two hoax exchanges?  I'm not biased on the situation at all. Even if I was pro-bitcoin, I would NEVER sign off on any ETF or other retardedness as long as Bitfinex controls price if I was the legislator.
