🚖 Taxis called Uber a "bad idea"

🏨 Hotels called Airbnb a "bad idea"

It's simple, they're afraid.

Uber IS a bad idea.
And Airbnb also.
Why? Because they're centralized entities.
A decentralised version of these two companies would be a great idea.

In fact it would be easy to do it with smart contracts on blockchain.

i kinda feel that you need to be able to live poor before you can live rich. although taking the short cut to rich could be nice one may not appreciate it as much.

Many people who have received large sums of money end up ruined quickly.
Your prayer makes a lot of sense, when money is earned with effort, control of superfluous spending is deeply analyzed before executing it.

pretty much this. once i dug myself out of that dark time i made sure that, at every step that i could, i had a secondary plan to fall back on. it taught me so much. its second nature now.

long ago i saw a magazine ad that showed an elderly lady looking sadly at her oil tank gauge (for oil heat for those who may not get it) that was registering basically empty. whoever did the ad captured the look on her face perfectly.

at that second i vowed my wife would never be that woman.

i can still picture that image and that was decades ago. its why im so careful to have fallback positions.

Seeing the elderly in this situation is really sad.

Looks like Craig finally dropped a few hits of X. Maybe he'll come to the profound introspective realization that being a scammer sucks.

Dr. Craig please. Lips sealed

I can only wonder, if jbear was a segregated witness, to this priceless moment in time.

Hey, I _do_  at least get that that is a WTF moment. OTOH, What, Me Worry?

I was vacationing elsewhere. I guess that means that I had already segregated myself.

There is talk of a resistance at $ 10k, it is likely that there is still a floating offer at the $ 9k level.

Quote
In the near-term, it is important to keep in mind that Bitcoin is facing mounting resistance between its current price levels and $10,000, with Big Chonis – a popular analyst – noting that he sees “more resistance than support.”

Yeah, if they suddenly received a million dollars they start living like they'll get a million dollars every year.

Have been reading it this morning about Italy and some villages/cities on lockdown... Is that for real?

Yes.
Forget the lockdown you saw in China, but yes, some villages are on “limited lockdown”.
I think it is a more “strong moral suasion” to stay at home rather than a true ban (in Italy we have laws, contrary to China).


BREAKING: Italy orders mass closures after #coronavirus cases quadruple. Officials ordered schools, public buildings, restaurants and coffee shops to close. The emergency measures come as a cluster of new COVID19 infections emerged, including some who had not been to China (DW)
https://twitter.com/howroute/status/1230970101828071430?s=20
True. But limited to some of the villages.
I don’t know if it happened also elsewhere, but situation is quickly escalating and I see (read) panick in the streets.
Trains being blocked, Chinese people being attacked and beaten on the streets.

Covid19 at the gates?
Venetia is not far from my home, and there are carneval events until mid next week with many north-italian visitors taking place.
Mankind is still too dumb to control an outbreak this big. I bet this will shake the economies quite intensively in the near future.

Most here don't get the emerging medium term big picture.

Sadly, it would probably go along the lines of masterluc- that "Vanga" could be right again, but not for any "fundamental" reasons.
I expect a sharp drawdown in many assets including both stock markets and btc, maybe even gold, somewhere between now and late March.

After that, a recovery would start, maybe even reaching back to 10K or thereabout at the halving.
Still, kept all btc (since I am not good at re-entering), increased treasury bills position (sold 67% of equities).

Shipping from China has stopped, while large container ships have less than 1 crew person per 1000 containers, The ships are practically unmanned.
Yet tourist keep flying around the world meeting other large groups of tourist from other parts of the world in very confined tourist attractions.
It's the perfect way to spread a human virus as fast and far as possible.
The average age of tourists, traveling to a climate they are not used to and eating food they are not used to all does not help there immune system.
Quote
In a strong statement, Israel's health ministry warned that nine South Korean tourists who visited the country recently have tested positive for coronavirus upon returning home.
The ministry called on anyone who may have come into close contact with the tour group for an extended period of time to self-quarantine.
The tourists visited some of the most popular sites in Israel and the West Bank from February 8 to 16, increasing the chance of a large-scale exposure in the region, the ministry said Saturday.
They are praised for giving out a warning on the sabbath, yet I read nothing about (temporary) halting this perfect way to spread the virus.
It may have worked in this case but I think we are close to passing the point where halting tourist from specific countries would work.

This is human. Most take situations seriously when the maximum damage is almost already done.
We're chatting apes, not much more.
Einstein said that mankind is able to use a few % of their brain capacity, but i say he was way too optimistic.

Well, i still have this kind of scenario in the back of my head. It's just that i sold BTC mostly at the most unfavorable times in the past, so i stay away from selling since 10/2018.
I'm doubting #hodl from time to time, as well as now. Not to save fiat, but to upsize my btc "stash" more quickly than using DCA. This has gone a bit wrong in the past times, which keeps me from selling, on the other hand it made me able to really hodl now, even down to pretty low prices.

Don't let them scare you into reporting you "holdings"!

Tell them NOTHING!

The IRS has known about me since 2013. Banker reported me to SEC for an over 10k sale to get KNC Jupiter Miner from Sweden...
...went to phone meeting with a banker and SEC (voice phone SEC end) and banker's 'proof' was BTC was 'evil' and no way I had
done taxes (spring 2014 with new IRS crypto rules) slap'd down my CPA done Tax Forms paid and SEC guy in a 'resigned' voice is
why am I here? ...so you can account for the BTC now or when they come later..I myself when the IRS or Whomever comes by saying
I am not legit due to my (1) trophy girlfriend (2) boat on the lawn (3) flashy car etc, will show them my 'legit' crypto earnings and tell
whoever they are to go 'pound sand' ..eventually KYC will be for all exchanges...so it will only get worse IMHO. (hope it is not as
bad as all that ...but soured me on what to expect as a newbie till now from 2013. Smiley

thats why i have signed some old mining addys with "i am so and so and i mined to this addy between approximately this and this date with this hardware at this pool",  saved pool payout logs and screenshots, kept gpu receipts, pics of mining setups etc.  

i always figured i would have to account for those early btc.

it was fine....first went to CPA she said did you spend any BTC you mined..me nope...end of problem...then 2 weeks before the tax deadline of April in 2014....the IRS came out with the

2014 guidelines....went to bank SEC above....thought I was (and happy about it) going to have to pay like $3k to IRS...went to amend taxes with CPA ..she read the IRS 2014

guidelines and laughed and said "you are a farmer' ..thought she had lost her frigging mind...but indeed wrote off all the equipment etc..came out better in HODL'ing BTC back

then as a result and such...

Anyway, the 'die' was cast...I'm as honest as the frigging snow...i even put my eBay sales and sig campaign money down as income....each year... I may have made mistakes

but the whole you deliberately messed with your taxes IRS line is not gonna fly if ever it comes to pass in my future...

probably a blessing in disguise actually ...I now have a 7-year track record as a crypto 'small home business' etc. No regrets.

later

Covid19 inside the gate.
Government is actually locking down 50,000 people in the infection cluster.
They are issuing special restrictive laws.

There's still a border between my home and italy, but it's open to heavy tourism as well, especially at carneval, easter and christmas season.
I also got a nice plate of venetian mortadella last weekend.
I'm not sure if i would have denied passed on it today.  Wink

This is fine...
