Actually a lot of those words are actually just what the rest of the world calls things rather than using Americanisms.

Serviettes are serviettes in England, Kenya, Mexico, Canada, and most English-speaking countries around the world. Only Americans call them "paper napkins".

Bacon from the back (loin) of the hog is called "back bacon" in most places. Only in the USA is it called Canadian bacon. Some Canadians call it "peameal bacon". The Brits often call side bacon "streaky bacon".

Only in the USA is synthetic cheese-like garbage called "American cheese". The rest of the world calls it "process cheese".

In most of the world "football" is played with the feet, not the hands. Exceptions are Canada and Australia.

Funny language, English.
_____

As for the word "goof" meaning a lowlife, it's apparently used in the USA as such (although perhaps mostly in prison) but with a slightly narrower definition.

Here in Canada it is used for pedophiles, informers, rapists and other unreliable or undesirable scum. In the USA it seems to be used mostly to describe pedophiles who prey specifically on young boys.

Aren't words fun?  Cheesy

Interesting that after reading you guys talking about goofball being derogatory (It isn't really here) I was watching john Oliver nad he was calling this guy a Goofball.



I wonder what context he meant. Cheesy

He's robo calling the FCC dicks as well. I did the same thing back in the 90's with my local police station. I went on every website I could find and filled in their phone number for a few days. That worked wonders. Smiley

Texas bill proposes to make it illegal for residents / companies to accept a cryptocurrency transaction unless you have positively identified the sender.  Also makes it illegal for Texas to accept any payment in a cryptocurrency which does not natively support identity verification.  

Quote
Sec. 662.0002.  VERIFICATION OF IDENTITY REQUIRED.

(a)     Before accepting payment by a digital currency, a person must verify the identity of the person sending payment. A person is not required to verify the identify of a person sending payment if the
    payment is sent by a verified identity digital currency.
          
(b)  This state may not use a digital currency that is not a verified identity digital currency.

https://capitol.texas.gov/tlodocs/86R/billtext/html/HB04371I.htm

Bob not going to be happy.

Note: this is a proposed law.  It has not been passed.  But I would be getting on the phone to my representative about this. 

Only in "Real America". :rolleyes:

Shells and rai stones were traded sometimes by a reference.
A seller simply referred to a stone (that was on the bottom of the sea due to a boating accident) in his/her transaction.
Therefore, micg has the buying power based on those seashells...since he seems to be able to wave his hand over them, obviously.

Gosh, sometimes I feel like this is exactly what we have for the "usual" money right now.
In a few days I would probably be an accomplice in creating a bunch more as I am angling for a loan.
My loan would create "money". Weird.

@JayJuanGee @ LFC_Bitcoin @bitserve

I had a choice last year that should I buy a car or house. I invested in property and reinvesting remaining money in more important things.

If everything works out fine in the next 5-10 year or so then, will buy Car with Driver  Grin

I am very happy with my under $100 bicycle and other than that I have my old "Royal Enfield classic 350" for road trips.



You usually can’t go wrong investing in bricks & mortar. It’s probably what I’ll do if/when bitcoin moons (buy lots of houses & start a property management company or something) otherwise I’ll become an alcoholic or a drug addict or something wandering around with nothing to do all day Cheesy


Great way to think about things. Most people only think to "moon" and then let things happen. And lottery winners have shown where that usually ends.

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can

Depends in what context, Tom Hanks had it all in the film ‘Cast Away’ in my opinion. Living off the land in beautiful nature. At times I wish I could do that. People are overrated, I love being on my own.
Same (the being alone part). But I also love technology, entertainment and great food. So I guess I'd say that being around humans is overrated as opposed to people themselves. Also a good scotch tastes twice as good in good company, which also elevates the herb and listening to full albums.

Fourth-generation farmer here. Underground farming? Not gonna happen, unless there is an extinction-level event. It takes more than space. The temperature is certainly constant, but at some stages the plants will do better if it's warmer. The realities of getting heat, light and water in needed quantities greatly outweigh the benefits. Underground caverns also (mostly) don't have appropriate soil, though hydroponics could be considered.

"Real" farming beyond hobby gardening is going to take machinery to plant  and harvest (at the least). Currently that is all internal combustion tractors and combines, fuel exhaust will be a problem underground.
Is heat, water and light still a problem with hydroponics? There's that gigantic automated indoor vertical farm in Japan that I'm pretty sure used hydroponics. Although I don't know to what extent hydroponics limit what you can grow, which would be another issue.

I do believe in science and math, that's precisely why I don't believe in a man made environmental change. It's an unproven hypothesis.
LOL how?

How could you deny the environmental pollution causing by the industrial smokes, cars etc?
How could you deny the fact that we are destroying the environmental ecosystem by cutting the forests?
How could you deny that we are killing animals and imbalancing the entire food chain?
How could you deny the climate change?
How could you deny the increased sea level?

Do you know what will happen if the last bee dies?
Watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjID1ugr1fo

It is called willful ignorance, most distasteful in an otherwise intelligent individual.

One of the largest challenges we face is the constant erosion of aesthetic expectations.  I sit here in middle age, aghast at the degradation I have seen in my short lifetime.  People younger than me never even saw it before we logged off the Pacific Northwest, before we built out the strip malls, before the fisheries started to collapse.  They have no reference point to know or value the beauty that I remember, and my recollections begin in the early 1970s when the accelerated decline had been well underway for some time.

Anthropogenic climate change may or may not turn out to be significant, but the dystopian cesspool we are creating is very, very real.

+2 WOsMerits

I'm not trying to be a cunt here, but it's important not to talk about things you don't even remotely understand the scope of as if they were fact.

Try harder... and while your at it, try practicing what your preaching. Now gtfo and go invest some of those "millions" into an actual education.
I don't think I need any more degrees. And I clearly state when I don't know the conclusion, which you would be able to tell if you read any of my numerous posts today. So how about you fuck off instead?

Its not just about the destination..but also the trip along the way. See above.

In this particular instance all I see is hypocrisy on your part. You fling ad hominems around without contributing to the discussion whatsoever. The hypocrisy of yours is a direct result of you bold quoting "willful ignorance" while completely ignoring every single thing I've said.

Again, the only problem are people like you. I'm providing objective points of concern from both sides, while you attack people from a perspective that you've picked up in MSM that you clearly don't know shit about. Otherwise you would have a civil discussion instead of attacking me.

I built a small one, they are very accurate, once you get the sling length/pin release worked out, counterweight and projectile weight dialed in. I can hit a monitor with a marble 4 cubes away, 10 out of 10 tries. GTFO with your nerf guns, I have a siege weapon...
You can hit a monitor how far? What’s a cube? Lol a typo?  Yet Another Silly Non SI unit?

Sorry, that's tech worker slang. A cube is a cubicle, an office working environment. A monitor is a computer viewing device. A monitor lizard would not be impressed by being hit with glass marbles at all, and only annoy it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monitor_lizard

A nerf gun is a safe and legal toy. Siege weapons were used since 429 BC, to break down fortified environments. Sometimes, instead of breaking down the castle wall, they would just hurl a dead cow inside a castle, and wait for them to all die from disease. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_engine

If the king sent a messenger with an offer that was refused, they would sometimes just fling the messenger against the castle wall in response. Don't kill the messenger?

EDIT: Just now looked, a Trebuchet was apparently a 4BC Chinese invention, despite the French sounding name. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trebuchet

EDIT AGAIN: I even named my small toy trebuchet. I called it "The Duke of Hurl" You can experiment with parameters here, safely.  http://www.virtualtrebuchet.com/

Accurate. Anyone sufficiently intelligent and knowledgeable is out there creating real solutions to real problems, rather than creating fake problems to cry for fake solutions. Or just simply permanently intoxicated, which is still vastly preferable to wasting a lifetime in the circle jerk farce that is politics.

Nice to see some voices of reason today in this world of total madness.

The founder of Greenpeace,  the legendary environmental fighter Patrick Moore speaks out and calls the hypothesis about human caused environmental changes the "biggest bluff in history". https://www.breitbart.com/radio/2019/03/07/greenpeace-founder-global-warming-hoax-pushed-corrupt-scientists-hooked-government-grants/

I do believe in science and math, that's precisely why I don't believe in a man made environmental change. It's an unproven hypothesis.

The whole argument is a fallacy, it doesn't matter if its man made or not. we have the power to make the world what we want it to be and we should use that power. It's natural for species to become extinct, should we not do anything and become extinct because its natural? Terraforming the world is a natural advance of any civilization if it wants to survive, it is no different than protecting that world from space born objects.

So what is the WO take on Andrew Yang?  I don’t know his policies and so don’t have an opinion yet.

As an outsider, who don't know much about American internal politics, So plz don't bash me Cheesy its just my opinion, I could be wrong here.

I have said this couple of time in P&S threads. And repeating the same here as well. he's not got going to be elected by Americans as a President. because Americans are not ready for Any Asian to lead their country, Plus any female president and any Candidate who is not Christian.

Ethereum is not what i see a healthy long term investment because it will go down by its own weight.

While scammer Vitalik selling it as a world super computer, reality is much different, which we already knew  Undecided

Quote
After examining every which way we could think of to add the Trie state to our Ethereum state, we asked Vitalik for assistance. His first comment to us was “oh you’re one of the few running one of those big, scary nodes.” We asked him if he knew of anyone else running a “big, scary node” to see if we could possibly sync with them. He knew of no one, not even the Ethereum Foundation keeps a full archival copy of the Ethereum chain.

Terraforming the world is a natural advance of any civilization if it wants to survive, it is no different than protecting that world from space born objects.
It's natural for species to be replaced, often with whatever they evolve into. And we're clearly on the way to evolving ourselves by merging with technology and gene-editing. While I believe that there will most likely be subsets of humans that will remain such (similarly to current random tribes around the world), humans will mostly go extinct in the future. But not because we've "gone extinct".

I'm all for terraforming and keeping animals around by the way, as well as reviving those of the past and making up new ones. All of which we'll hopefully treat better and/or leave the fuck alone once lab meat becomes commercialized and common sense.


Either way, what argument exactly are you calling a fallacy? The notion that man made climate change is unproven is fact. Environmental change however is a different story, it's obvious that plastics and other trash is messing with oceans. And we have certainly displaced much of vegetation and wildlife.
