Wiki asking for donation...

Tell them "Donate your mother if you want donate!"

Edit: This was meant for the lulz! Actually I do like Wikipedia, IIRC I've even donated some money to them (a long time ago). Not sure if they have a hidden agenda and all that conspiracy theory stuff, but I do enjoy their articles. In science/technology subjects (which I'm mostly interested in) they are OK.

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

OT: Seriously what the fk are Americans doing over in Beirut anyway? Are they nuts? j/k

https://twitter.com/SVNewsAlerts/status/1290696384472068096
Fireworks accident my ass, That was like a small nuke with a mushroom. Check out that blast wave ring.  


Dude. Very few explosions mankind humankind has yet devised are more brissant than ANFO.

Perhaps you're right and it was indeed ammonium nitrate. My point was more that there's a high level of skepticism in 'how it happened and why' rather than what was used. It certainly looks controlled as a single blast.  Surely the timing and location of such a critical blow is suspicious.  

https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/bride-groom-survived-beirut-explosion-wedding-day-213432157.html

That shockwave blast, sheesh. Feel bad for this couple on their wedding day. Definitely something they'll remember forever.

I saw this in the thread though... ?

"These arrests/cases have all happened over the last year or two, not the last 24 hours. "

https://twitter.com/SubtleBodhi/status/1290500293893844997

2008 for that one. Plenty more where that came from.

It's interesting that most of the political figures mentioned in the above Twitter thread are republicans.

It reminded me of a documentary I once watched, where it was mentioned that a US cable TV survey revealed that the overwhelming majority of hardcore adult channel subscriptions came from neighborhoods occupied by predominantly republican, church-going families.

An interesting correlation...

 correlation to what?  Stupidity?  Free porn is plentiful on the internet - why would anyone pay for a cable subscription?

I donated as well but it's not practical to donate everytime you change your location. I read history/political/science subs and I find first 2 subjects ridiculously biased.

I think the documentary was very old, long before ADSL/VDSL connections... At that time you could only rent tapes or watch via cable TV.

I also have donated to Wikipedia but not recently since they won't accept anonymous contributions.

If you click on "Other Ways to Give", they accept Bitcoin but steer you to Bitpay instead of simply posting an address to make donations to.

Bitpay wants you to identify yourself. Screw that.

You are not going to be a bit pissed off LFC because you had sold 75%-ish of your stash at around the $75k blow-off top fake out that might come around September/October-ish 2021?  because remember you were planning to buy back lower?  would you second guess that selling 75% might be a bit much at those lower prices, even though it will both bring you a lot of pleasure and it will lock in a lot of profits.. but then you end up missing another 3.5x?  Sure your 25% is still riding, so you would not have missed out everything, even though you are feeling pretty rich as fuck with your 75% cashing out.

JJG, I’ll be 35 by the time the supposed parabolic rise starts. I’d be more angry at myself for selling nothing at around $70,000 if we collapsed from there than I would be if I sold 75% before we get to $100,000 only to see us touch something ridiculously high like $200,000.

I took nothing during the last bull & these 4-5 years have been tough. I refuse to sit through another cycle without taking big money out.

Exactly this... hookers can't wait that long don't they?  Cool

13k are quite possible IMHO. I'd say ~35% likely. For JJG, I'd say 35.10332%

But I actually care more about a good rock-solid 12k than a flimsy 13k. Slow and steady wins the race Wink

You damned bear.   Tongue Tongue


Haven't been hearing much about your leveraged trading recently, d_eddie?

You don't got time for that?

morning peeps

Surprising strength being shown not only by Bitcoin but in other markets as well and I take this as a promising sign of things to come. I for one am tired of the call of the doomscrollers...ftft. Time to celebrate life and the summer sunshine...whilst practicing safe social distancing of course. #doyourownresearch

As long as you are comfortable, ultimately.

Of course, we are going to have to see how it all plays out, and surely I have not been suggesting to NOT take out anything.  Probably closer to my suggestion has been to take out a little bit all along.. especially once accumulation goals are met, then even maintenance can allow for a kind of ongoing removing of value along the way, so with my ONLY speculating about your details (and perhaps kind of having some decent ideas where you are at), I still remain inclined towards emphasizing incrementalism and beating you up about it (of course, just rhetorically) from time to time.  

Of course, in the stage of your life where you are at, finances/age or whatever, you still seem MOAR inclined towards accumulating than me, and I am more on the maintenance end of the spectrum... and I am less shy about various deviations into liquidations, here and there, too... So, surely, I had already made a representation that I had largely "over accumulated" in 2015-ish, so that also causes me less shyness in terms of liquidating a bit here and there.. and if you are not quite in that "over accumulation" phase, then you are going to look at aspects of the whole matter a bit differently from me... but I still will emphasize incrementalism, whether we are talking about you specifically or any other persons who are similarly situated.. which likely are a decent number of similarly-situated members who are actively participating in this thread or merely reading this thread.

Maybe I am a bit envious, too (don't read that as a hater, because I appreciate if some members might be doing better than me in terms of accounting for their age timeline or even other aspects of building their wealth through bitcoin), that you have already reached a kind of financial investment success (even by identifying and getting into bitcoin) that is outperforming any investment that I had been making in my 20s and 30s..? so there is that angle too.  

By the way, each of us recognize that there is a pretty BIG difference between building wealth on paper, and being able to really live it up from the proceeds of the investments that any of us has made by pulling some of the value out of one investment and putting it somewhere else, including having some comfort in holding decent amounts of extra wealth in cash because we have wealth in other areas that are actually working for us... so yeah, pulling out some wealth from bitcoin and putting it into other investments, keeping some in cash and using some on hookers, lambos and blow can all be reasonable steps, also including making other upgrades to the consumption level and standard of living are reasonable steps, too... so surely not meaning to assert those to be potentially prudent and reasonable planning strategies.

things heating up big time. I think BTC will hit ATH this month, before correction until Oct-November....

You must be new here....

infofront (or maybe someone else?  Perhaps?) probably deleted the post, because I did not even see it... .. besides the snipped quote, here.

Edit:  I saw another later post, by the above-referenced dweeb....   Probably his days are numbered in this thread, if he cannot at least figure out some kind of more subtle way to weave-in his shitcoin pumpenings.. but we will see.. maybe he will convince us all to sell our BTC for his shitcoins?  Perhaps?  Anything is possible, almost.

More like less than 3, but I get the feeling.
However, if you take 75% at 70K and btc goes to 261K, some would call you mindrust-lite for sure, but not me.
I say that everybody has their goals in life and it's good to follow through on those.

For you and others...it's all fun and games, but then I read this:

All depends on how many coins you have. If I had 10,000 I would've been perfectly happy to get rid at any point in the last 3-4 years. $10 mil is more than serviceable. 200 mil works for me too.

I'd much rather get rid when things were relatively peaceful. I can't imagine exchange services will handle future mania any better than they have in the past, maybe considerably worse.

As for Omniviolence, whatever. Move to an island, live in a shielded shed and have an EMP going off every ten minutes if that's your thing.
