The other day when JJG advocated for glassed on Rocket Racoon it must have planted a subliminal suggestion in my mind... or something.  Anyway, whatever it was manifested itself tonight in the form of an upgrade.



Avatar-sized



 If you like.

It changes the nuance of the avatar a bit.. kind of tones down the flamboyant and causes a kind of more technically nerdy... ...

O.k... sure... I will try it out for a while... and see if it feels comfortable.  Thanks, xhomer.

With these glasses you can catch the Bottoms. Wink

"Bitcoin trader tortured with drill" in the Netherlands. The robbers were dressed as police with bulletproof vests and masks and they made his 4 year old daughter watch as they were torturing him. He survived but was heavily wounded. Stay safe.

Bitcoin.org  co-owner calls out Jack Dorsey, predicts CashApp will push censorship.

An important principle that contributed to the emergence and growth of the cryptocurrency market was its accessibility and the lack of a “bar on entry.” The absence of censorship and central authority attracted proponents to make the coin a mainstay in several Libertarian campaigns.

This principle was defended by Cobra, the co-owner of Bitcoin.org and Bitcointalk.org in his latest jibe at Jack Dorsey and Twitter via his latest tweet.

Cobra is a poor communicator in general, but despite his overreaction here, he makes a vital point. @jack has a battle on his hands

I wouldn't say he is a poor communicator but the problem is that he looks to be almost randomly switching sides all the time. It is always a surprise which foot he is gonna wake up each day/week before twitting. I have suspected for long that he simply likes to troll.

Not saying most of his arguments are wrong but he lacks coherence in his positions.

Indeed.

I have instructed everyone I know (and care) to never ever open the door to police. Two reasons:

1- How do you know they aren't faking it? No amount of paperwork, badges or whatever can prove shit.
2- If they really ARE... for sure they are not coming to your fucking house for anything good. (of course you refer them to point 1, not 2, don't wanna make them angrier).

P.S.: There is one exception to the above rule. If you are already being robbed, yeah, let them in. Nothing to lose.

It's not really clear he was tortured because he was a bitcoin trader. Nevertheless it's still a fcked up experience. In the last two paragraphs the Telegraaf bashes crypto and Bitcoin linking it to other crimes.

I am poor. Everyone knows that. I don't even have a proper job right now. Considering my options... maybe I should apply to one of those social rents or whatever it is named (if you can't fight them, join them).

No whale wants to be the one who breaks $4K just to see the rest don't follow or dump on him at 4.1-4.2. I wonder if the price will just keep slowly raising until $4K simply gets crossed without a "pump".

4.2-4.3 will be a very hard nut to crack. Better to arrive there when ready, not before.

I'm not trying to be mr psuedobadass,

Yes, you are.    Tongue Tongue

 How do Elton John glasses tone down the flamboyance?

How do you figure, Elton John?  

I know Elton John wore circular, but did he wear technical gadget nerdy, too?
all eccentric flamboyant sunglasses=elton John.

It should be o.k.  My earlier hat (besides the transparent background upgrade) was one of the first batch of hats, and so very old school.. and perhaps Beta version.

I was actually getting somewhat envious of several of the nexgen 3d hat avatars that were coming out for other members, and so I appreciate this 3D upgrade.

I already uploaded the new hat image more than 10 minutes ago, but so far, it is not changing to the new one... I will just wait a bit longer, before I become too excited.

 I didn't have Elton John in mind while accessorizing this hat but I would like to point out that Ozzy Osbourne, John Lennon, Steve Jobs and Mahatma Ghandi are also associated with round glasses.  At any rate, I was going for a high-tech, industrial steampunk look.  Those glasses are available for €300 online1 if you like them.

Still struggling to break through $4,000. I was expecting a concerted effort by major players to get us past $4,000 this weekend. I guess there’s still time but it really is acting as a strong resistance.
