Bit worried about the Mayor and Quadrigacx

Oh yeah... hadn't thought about that possible connection.

By the way, it is funny that we have not had many members of this thread asserting that they lost money in Quadrigacx.

I lost 1.5 BTC on Quad, which was supposed to fund my expenses for the next several months. And I only use exchanges for the duration of the deposit, trade, and withdrawal. It just happened to die on me at the exact wrong (or right) time I used it. Otherwise, I don't keep anything on any exchange.

Oh Homer you poor old sausage. Very sad to hear that. Stay with us and we will keep you busy. But what a fucking thing.

  Thanks V8 Wink  Fortunately, I didn't quit my day-job (well I work shift... but you know what I mean) and soon I will qualify for discount meals at the local senior center.  Wednesday is roast beef dinner day - currently only CAD $5.84 with a beverage (non-alcoholic).


Seems xclnt value. Remember to liberate the sachets of horseradish sauce etc for spicing up noodle soups.

Still can't quite believe the mayor just ran off with all your money, but there's no accounting for folk.

 Soup-of-the-day is $2.oo and seems like a rip-off after seeing the cost of the entire dinner - I wont be partaking but I may take a few packets of sauce home with me to put in my canned soup Wink
Thanks for the tip.

It'd also probably be quite cumbersome to shit billions and billions and billions of human bodies for replacements.

Billions? For what reason do you believe billions can afford this at any time in the next millennia. It will only be for the lucky few if available at all.
Economics of scale. Cost of production for everything is going down and with abundant energy (fusion) and advances in AI physical "things" will be virtually free. But producing all those bodies would still be less desirable than just getting some vaccine.

Again I was looking at random btc addresses.

https://bitinfocharts.com/bitcoin/address/1Cp18yeabUg14CNp2HGwKisDoixiGgzmeT

Poor bastard probably dumped last of his bitcoins (18k) when he saw $0.32. Made himself a juicy $35k by selling 26750 coins. (96 Millions fucking DOllars today)

You can probably buy yourself a live forever upgrade with that amount nowadays.

Where are they selling "live forever upgrades" these days? Cause I see the world's wealthiest still turn into fossils and die. You'd think they'd buy it if available ...

There's been talks of infusing older people with young blood, as lambie slayer pointed out. In the not too distant future, coiners will be farming young nocoiners for their blood.

By the way, it is funny that we have not had many members of this thread asserting that they lost money in Quadrigacx.

 Somehow I feel goaded into a reply:

 There's nothing funny about it and we won't be certain how much money we have lost (assertions will be difficult) until the legal process is complete and from my perspective it is mildly embarrassing - I can only imagine how others feel.  There is a modicum of hope that some money will be recovered though with all the lawyers and bean-counters involved, any amounts of cash and/or coin recovered is dwindling as they take their pound of flesh for services rendered.  I stand to lose some (or all) of the CAD I have on the QuadrigaCX exchange but thanks to jbreher for reminding me about the proof of keys, I transferred the Bitcoin held on QuadrigaCX back to my local wallets on Dec. 31st.

 It's disheartening but nothing new in Bitcoin.  I've been screwed by Butterfly Labs on ASIC purchases, screwed by KNC miner who had my money for nearly a year without delivering my mining device or refunding my money(Bitcoin), I've been screwed out of funds when BTC-TC got shaken down by the SEC, screwed out of funds by creativex when he disappeared with investor funds from our mining operation bASIC Mining, screwed by ASICMiner (friedcat) when they went tits up and he disappeared after moving the shares from BTC-TC to Havelock Investments, slightly screwed over by AMHash (which may or may not have been mining at all), nearly screwed by Cryptsy though I never kept much on there as it was only used for exchanging my mined altcoin for Bitcoin, I had set up an account on GOX but never put money or coins in it fortunately, I've even been screwed on a coffee purchase using Bitcoin here on the forum.  Fuck.  Any normal person probably would have quit Bitcoin by now but I guess I'm a glutton for punishment.

 I know you like percentages JJG so I'll give you two.  My CAD on deposit with QuadrigaCX (which I stand to lose) is ~300% of my total investment in Bitcoin or ~7% of the money I spent on cigarettes when I was young(er) and foolish(er).
 

jeez not the most of luck you had have ......

some good on the post = cigarettes when<------

quitting that is a huge succes

 I also have a lot of good luck.  Just last week at lunch on my night shift, I was way behind in a cribbage game; I needed 26 points to go out and I counted first.  Usually that's game over but I held a pair of 4's, a pair of 6's and cut a 5!  Pegged a few points and game over.  I took my one dollar winnings to the social club subsidized pop machine and out popped two coke zeros for the price of one!  On the way back to the table to share my bounty I found a dime on the floor.  Life is good.

I massively regret quitting smoking.

It's been 18 months now. There have been absolutely no health benefits, none. No difference in taste or smell, my breathing is exactly the same. What is different is that it has completely fucked my brain. I have a fraction of the concentration I used to have and even when I do concentrate I make mistakes in a way I never used to. I would start again but I doubt it's going to repair my mind so I have to pay small Filipinos to come in and brush my teeth these days.

The only thing that really extends life a significant amount is fasting.  You can take any living creature and restrict the amount of calories it intakes and it will live much longer.

I am solely interested in things that extend youth and middle age - which would be tricky without a black hole- not the utter horror and drudgery that comes after that. I'd rather be fat and dead than stringing out another 20 years of staring into the abyss on my bony buttocks.

The thing is, if you could preserve your crusty old ass for another 20 years, they may have viable age reversal methods by then.

just start again if saying something stupid/F***ed up as that
take a cigarette now and enjoy yourself knowing you're doing the good and healthy thing

as you say there are no differences

i think you even will be better smoking them with 2 @once instead of singles

I've been ready to go since I was about 4. I'll make the best of what I've been handed but I sure as shit do not want to draw it out any longer than I have to.

Do you regularly do anything that actively challenges you mentally? Picking up new things (actively, not through osmosis) helps with concentration and accuracy.

Aye. Constantly. The spirit is willing but the hardware has been flushed away.

I had to resubmit my initial claim (from years ago) past year when mtgox entered into civil rehabilitation. I have not heard it was needed to do it for a third time.

I assume you did the last year resubmit, didn't you?
