Which is exactly why there is no reason for the boomers here to be butthurt when I talk about how they all deserve to die.

Altogether too true. Inasmuch as we are human. Life extension tech is unlikely to reach escape velocity in our lifetimes. You deserve to die too, motherfucker.

(In my most benevolent paternalistic voice...)
Wouldn't be so sure about that. It doesn't need to reach escape velocity anytime soon either, as long as it becomes good enough to prolong a little bit every so often.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.
Advertised sites are not endorsed by the Bitcoin Forum. They may be unsafe, untrustworthy, or illegal in your jurisdiction.

This debate caught my interest, so I've looked through Wikipedia and glanced through Investopedia, but I haven't found an unequivocal statement about risk being a probability (pure number) or an expectation (currency units). No clear cut equation anywhere. Some pages say only downside enters the calculation, which would make a negative outcome impossible.

As a layman, I'm left thinking that the unqualified term 'risk' isn't well suited to numerical discussion. Other more precisely defined quantities might be better for that.


This:

Quote
In risk analysis, risk is traditionally defined as a function of probability and impact. The probability is the likelihood of an event occurring and the consequences, to which extent the project is affected by an event, are the impacts of risk.

It's very "numerical"... but, of course, the subjectivity lies on assigning proper values for both probability and impact.
Impact is easy, just make everything up like we have been on the WO. Probabilities of all the impacts are hard. Very hard.

While I am a big adherent to Hanlon's razor, I find that my suspension of disbelief is increasingly unwilling to explain the manifest ineptitude of governments around this contagion by mere stupidity.

Unfortunately I have had the same line of thought.

Bidens success on Super Tuesday has moved him from a slight favorite to more than a 2 to 1 favorite.

Voters at exit polls said the Coronavirus had a large influence on their decision.

This tells me that with stocks tanking voters could not risk taking a chance on a candidate who prefers communism over capitalism.

This is Bullish for King Bitcoin as a hypothetical Biden led White House would be much friendlier to Bitcoin than a Bernie led White House full of communist idealogues looking for ways to become like China and Vietnam.

The Fed cut rates today by .5 percent, they usually only do a quarter point cut. The halvening is near, money printing is accelerating across the globe, and Covbull-19 is sowing distrust in governments and germ filled paper money.

We are living in most Bullish times.  Grin

TLDR: Its BTCull $eason for realz.

Correct. Not so sure. Hence, "unlikely".

Commie!

Says the man raised on government cheese.

They should try it once. Should be fun. They can pretend it's from Bill Gates.

They already tried it, iirc, in 2001 and again in 2008.

Mailed lots of checks: $300 per person, $600 per married couple.

Poor Bernie. The tide has turned against him today. America get ready for another round of your favorite presidential election game: Giant Douche vs. Turd Sandwich.

I don't see Biden as being "sharp" enough to beat Trump. Which is quite a sad testament to the state of things. Basically, politics as usual...

Biden's about only chance is to act as the "sane" guy. Trump has to look like a clown besides him. He tries so hard to look serious.
Or America is really that stupid, then it's "good night", like in Mike Judge's "Idiocracy"  Sad

That's a very tall order. They could make each other look not sane, senile, and gross, and they would both be right.

The Idiocracy effect has been slowly underway for the past couple decades.



The bright side is, according to the movie, we still have a few hundred years to go before people are really that level of dumb.
