There's quite literally not enough land in this world for everyone to eat free range meat, maybe "unsustainable" is the wrong word to describe it, I'm not sure. English isnt my first language.

Either way, im still pretty sure its not ecologically sound at all https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24216416/

This study says that the greenhouse gas emissions were 30% higher for grassfeed beef than other kinds.
The organic stuff (shit) that they return to the soil locks up more carbon than than the effects of the methane.

Not true, its stated in the source I linked. 37% higher .than regular beef farming, and then a 15-24% carbon reduction is realized through carbon sequestering (or as you put it, shit). So a grand total of 22% higher to 13% higher than other methods of beef farming.

So you are just a one source kind of guy or girl. Plenty of material out there to wade through with differing conclusions.

Stop worrying about all the bull you read in MSM and get out and enjoy your young life.

Experience everything you can, your time here is short.

By the time you die the temperature may or not be 0.5 C higher.

But Bitcoin will be definitely will be higher.

There is more than enough gold mined already to be used for industries for centuries.
It should be considered a worthless asset as it's too dangerous and too polluting to mine.
When talking about Bitcoin, I often hear the argument: "What if a whale sells everything, the price would drop!". With gold, I've never seen anyone worry about that, while most of the gold is owned by very few entities.

I enjoy watching Goldrush Alaska, don't take that away Cheesy

The fact we are still hovering around 50K after a week of panic I think that the whale argument becomes less of an issue over time.

I would not write off this particular dip as to being over, yet... even though it may well be.  Who knows?

We probably would see a 350-250k drop I bet, something as ridiculous like that but we will never see prices where an average individual can just hoard a stack of coins in one go without major available colorectal on their side.

A drop from $350k to $250k would ONLY constitute about a 29% dip, and that just seems to be pie in the sky if you believe that bitcoin goes from a history of having several 85% or more dips, to no longer exceeding 30%.. just seems ridiculous, especially when we have some pretty decent ideas (and information) that the concept and practice of FOMO has neither disappeared from bitcoinlandia or any of the spaces that frequently are associated with it (shitcoins or whatever)...

So if we concede that FOMO is still likely to exist in this space, it seems unreasonable to expect one direction without the other - no matter how bullish are the fundamentals and the blah blah blah.  FOMO in either direction (might be called correction on the way down, but whatever) remains a product of both amount of price movement and how much time it takes to get there.  So, sure if there is some taking of time, then it is likely that no blow off top will be reached, but whatevers, I will believe it when I see it rather than assuming that it no longer exists because it has been nearly a year since I have seen it.   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Sure, I can appreciate less volatility with the passage of time, but going down from a history of frequent 85%+ drops to no longer being able to achieve greater than 30% seems way too pie in the sky from my humble bumble opinion.


Doubt we will ever see < $40K again. But don't quote me on that.

We will act like you did not say it.

Sure, the initial Satoshi coins would have a huge impact but those will probably never move as most people believe.

Probably true.. but never say never.   Lips sealed

As many as 29,000 users of the Passwordstate password manager downloaded a malicious update that extracted data from the app and sent it to an attacker-controlled server. Bad actors compromised its upgrade mechanism and used it to install a malicious file on user computers.

Also: antivirus software is useless. What a surprise.

The process of making milk into yogurt also prevents them getting ill as many Asian people are lactose intolerant, losing their ability to make lactase after weaning.

Not true, even in India lactose intolerance affects more than 60% of the population, and most of asia its at 80%+

Possible you misunderstood that line, maybe lost in google translator.

The process of fermenting milk into yogurt means that lactose intolerant people can then consume the milk.
Yes Asian people are lactose intolerant, the whole point of that line.

Nah, it is 300, then 60 as bitcoin typically goes (-80% or about).
60 might sound insane at 300 almost as much as 300 sounds unbelievable now.

OT: since people are posting temp graphs...it is a distinct possibility that we are going into a solar activity minimum, Dalton-like almost guaranteed, Maunder-like is possible. If so, temp will decrease or remain subdued for what could be 40 (Dalton-like)-70(Maunder-like) years. Hopefully, south-east TX would become a bit colder/drier  Grin.

Another city boy who knows sweet FA about producing beef.

Not all of us city boys are clueless about our food.



The Angus steer on the right is Murray, being held by the lad who lovingly raised him like a pet, knowing full well that he was destined for slaughter. He was reserve grand champion at the prestigious Royal Winter Fair a few years back.

The guy with the glasses, second from right, is my local neighborhood butcher in downtown Toronto. He sources his meat from small, humane producers like the happy family in the rest of the picture. Happy meat is good meat. Of course it's free of artificial hormones and unnecessary antibiotics.

Murray was raised on forage and silage and finished with barley. Needless to say he was harvested humanely, locally.

I was lucky to get a couple of steaks from the front part of his rib section (with large spinalis dorsi muscles), plus a couple of flat irons (infraspinatus muscles). While we were enjoying him we had his picture up on the 55" display and toasted him, thanked him, and complimented him on his fine flavor and texture. He was delicious.
____

Don't hate on vegans. They're just victims of a neurosis-based eating disorder.

I'm an omnivore that can enjoy a nice filet mignon, beef carppacio, and a steak tartare once in a while, but calling my food pets, giving them names, then having a ceremonial funeral with a picture on the 55" while you consume their flesh sounds like some messed up sacrificial woodoo ritual. Hey why not start them early as kids get old enough to hold a knife force them to slaughter their favorite pet they bonded to the most, that way the lack of their nutrient deficiencies would be the last of your worries

1 - Satoshi is
2 - Satoshi likes

Third option: Satoshi is

Fourth option:  He lost

Fifth option:  Satoshi is

Sixth option:  Satoshi is

Seventh option:  Satoshi is nullius - spreading misinformation on the WO thread

It's hard to understand people sentiment over Bitcoin, which changes time to time..

If Bitcoin goes down: Bitcoin is a Scam  Huh
                       &
If Bitcoin goes up: Bitcoin is Love  Kiss

You seem to be reading too much into the situation.

Maybe if you buy some coins and figure out some kind of meaningful BTC accumulation strategy, you will be able to speak from experience rather than hypothetical detached bullshit that does not really have any meaning beyond your wanting to say something that might happened to appear like it means something.

No disrespect to anybody living in a city or especially to you.
I know by your posts you appreciate fine food and can see in your great photo a man who lives well.
Just that lots of folk are very lacking in knowledge about where their food comes from.
Lucky you getting a taste of that fine ethically raised steer.

No hate for vegans just pity for them and more so their children who unless their diet is very well formulated will suffer from nutritional deficiencies affecting their neurological development.

A very long time ago I spent a year in Kerala India, as the majority of the population being Hindu do not eat meat nor did I. But the diet of fruit coconut brown rice and vegetables lentils beans with home made yogurt which provides long chain protein is sound keeping them healthy. The process of making milk into yogurt also prevents them getting ill as many Asian people are lactose intolerant, losing their ability to make lactase after weaning.
The first steak I eat after this period was fantastic but gave me diarrhea, sudden change in diet.

I owe a debt to you in encouragement to continue accumulating bitcoin by your constant posts with reference to " just been down to the ATM, purchased more Bitcoin"

Happy days all round.

Thanx for the kind words. No offense taken. Indeed, many people (especially suburbanites) shop in supermarkets and think food comes wrapped in plastic. They've never seen their food bring raised and harvested.

Children are the only reason to take veganism seriously. From what I've seen, most vegetarians/vegans cheat and occasionally eat animal-based foods. The problem is that they don't allow their kids to cheat. That's child abuse.

I'm glad my posts have had a positive influence on your accumulation. Happy days indeed.

Reminder: don't trust password managers...
A txt file, in a vera(true-)crypt archive is probably more secure, especially if it only contains a cryptic description or hint of the passwords. (still wouldn't use it for btc stuff)

On windows, security is an impossible to review mess anyway, with almost every application, library, driver and tool implementing it's own independent software update system.

Also: antivirus software is useless. What a surprise.
A well written polymorphic virus (with no common sequences of bytes between reproduced copies) should be undetectable with today's tools and was invented more than 20 years ago. The fact that no one makes these indicates that virus scanner take way too long to add new viruses to their database, so there is no need to make it undetectable.

maybe, but temp could vary by up to 1oC.

https://electroverse.net/grand-solar-minimum-and-the-swing-between-extremes/
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maunder_Minimum

Interesting from that electroverse article (posted in July 2020):
"Winter 2020-2021 is going to be brutal."
..and it was. TX froze (temp below -5oC, which did not happen since many decades ago) with electrical blackouts to boot.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/weather/2021/02/24/texas-winter-storm-temperature-records/
This storm affected many states besides TX, though.

Whoa. I'm not the one who raised the meat. Nor did I name it nor slaughter it. I doubt the kid who raised it ate any of it.

Yes, I honored Murray while I ate him, but I'm sure I also saluted the accompanying vegetables for giving up their lives. Remember, plants have feelings too.

The problem is that they don't allow their kids to cheat. That's child abuse.

Not allowing kids to eat meat = child abuse

Slaughtering animals = humane treatment, totally not animal abuse, see that only applies to dogs and cats

Dogs and cats? Isn't a shot of Euthasol the preferred method of slaughter?
