edit: thanks for your service to your country btw

This isn't meant to be deliberately offensive, and apologies to any veterans if it comes across that way, but I can never really understand the "thanks for your service" rhetoric, most commonly encountered in the US. Firstly, members of the armed forces there are receiving a salary, so is it really "service"? Secondly, the US's recent military endeavours have largely been in the service of, and to the benefit of, oil corporations and their shareholders, rather than to their country. I thought we'd gone beyond the naïvety of thinking that governments wage wars for the benefit of their people.

im from a military family. theres a lot more to it than salary.

Fair enough, although that's not really an explanation. But service to country? Or service to corporate interests?

I read so much Sci Fi in my youth that it's all a blur now, but I remember enjoying Heinleins books.

I'm reading starship troopers right now and absolutely loving it. Different to the movie of course (I loved that too mind you but for different reasons).

what is this "brake pedal" you speak of?

All you need to stop a drone is a net.

for the 1st wave maybe. they can be expendable to the point of just sheer overwhelming numbers. so what if 90% of the drones are taken out as long as they take out what took them out. next ones get further, either making it or by thoughtfully trying to  blow up near anything that seems to have slowed them down, paving the way for the drones behind it. drone specialized for cutting nets (or blowing up next to such nets) would seem to be fairly trivial but im not an engineer.

swarm behavior is something else.

Use more nets, make them out of metal, or ceramic. There's always a countermeasure.

lol its like Spy vs Spy from MAD magazine.

how fast you you make and deploy new nets as my drones adapt and destroy or overwhelm them? and one can make a LOT of drones very fast and truck em around. some may be smaller that your net mesh size even. no one cares if they even survive (theyre not meant to survive: job is go there and find something interesting to blow up next to. the sole purpose is to wear down defenses so the next ones go further.

bleh. depressing train of thought anyway.

Two cashiers at my fav grocery store have just bought bitcoin, they were kind of interested before and listened when I talked about it last fall and this winter, but they felt that it was a bit to alien for them.
Now one of them got advice from her advisor to balance her stonks with some bitcoin, and she did, and now she sits down at the table when I have a cup of coffe in the cafeteria and talks bitcoin with me. The other guy just needed a push and it seem the hype lately did the trick, he also now talks bitcoin with me and asks me for advise, (what wallet to use and such).
Neither of them is you typical cashier though, the girl comes from a pretty well of family and have a pretty good stonks portfolio and the guy is a uni student who works to get money for his studies (he also collects 80s cars, he calls them old cars).

Don't know if I should smile or cry.

Doge taking BTC down with it and ETH only mildly affected. Not a good look, when a shitcoin can bring down the gold standard in the space.

Maybe the market has topped out for this cycle? I still think we are doing a 2013 cycle though, and we are in the april part of that year, we won;t get the massive dip though, just sideways.

Indeed , if we invest 600$ in Bitcoin today, it will turn into 1 Million$ when Bitcoin Price reaches 1 Million and I am confident it will reach there but when, very hard to predict correctly.

You have your numbers wrong, if Bitcoin hits a million that $600 would be closer to 10k

OT:
I like the idea how Signal tried to expose how much data Facebook is collecting using a simple Instagram ad but Facebook didn’t like it.


It was evidently not OK with Signal exposing the personal data that Facebook has for sale to promote its own more private alternative.

That is pretty awesome of Signal to do that. Too bad it got removed, might have woke some sheep up.

I am coming to the conclusion that in the future it may be best to be able to defend your home/property yourself. I could either buy vast acreage and build a fortress, or buy an island that is easier to protect as the only people coming will be coming by boat...which can be defended against.

you know there are these things called "aircraft" that make a lot of traditional defenses useless.

You know there are these things called anti aircraft guns that shoot down aircrafts, says a former AA gunner.

drones are small, cheap and hard to see. program piles of them and set em loose.

point being there are always guys with bigger/better guns. always.

in my youth i read some dystopian Robert Heinlein stuff that seemed just crazy with their political premises and such. now im practicality living it.

edit: thanks for your service to your country btw



This isn't meant to be deliberately offensive, and apologies to any veterans if it comes across that way, but I can never really understand the "thanks for your service" rhetoric, most commonly encountered in the US. Firstly, members of the armed forces there are receiving a salary, so is it really "service"? Secondly, the US's recent military endeavours have largely been in the service of, and to the benefit of, oil corporations and their shareholders, rather than to their country. I thought we'd gone beyond the naïvety of thinking that governments wage wars for the benefit of their people.

I thought the same way when I was younger and I have meanwhile changed my view slightly.

Please note that nobody ever thanks the politician dickheads for the bribes they took or the wars they started, but the men and women risking their life (admittedly in a possibly false belief to protect their country and fellow citizens) deserve our thanks for the risks they take I think. Being ready to give your life for a greater good is being reason enough for me to respect these people, what they do and their reasons for doing it, even more since they are often treated as you rightly notice just as cannon fodder for some twisted goals (often protecting the petro$, therefor remotely on-topic).

I can think that the US of A is a war waging country invading shithole country one after another with mostly complete made up reasoning or outright commercial interest and at the same time I can have great respect for those who have their boots then on the ground, taking all possible risks in the spirit/belief of protecting their fellow citizens and community. Unfortunately those responsible for any useless war rarely get harmed, it's those men and women who get paid a ridiculous salary for the risks they take and fight in wars that they personally would never have started in the first place.

I really think one can disapprove a certain war and still have respect for the people that ultimately have to fight in it on the ground.

Ok, a little education time.

Shitcoin indexes are tied to Bitcoin, and thus shitcoin bot trading will move up and down with BTC price.

If whales want to dump shitcoins and really move those markets, they will also dump some BTC at the same time. When btc dumps, shitcoins dump more.

And that's exactly what they did.

Who didn't see the big Doge dump coming on Elon's big night on SNL? I knew that's what the whales were gunning for over a week ago.  Roll Eyes

So no, the doge shitcoin did not "bring down Bitcoin". Btc was dumped on purpose.

Elon just said, "Dogecoin, it's a hustle". Doge down 30%
So, 8th May SNL thing turn into shade. what will be our ride going to a dollar?

I have looked at this, but Elon Musk drops a giant doge turd so down 30%. Buy on rumor. Sell on SNL. Robinhood stopped trades on DOGE, Beware of that.

People still trading on Robinhood have a rusty pipe fetish. Let them have their fun.

You are right my math was wrong. If Bitcoin hit a million $600 would be $10,169. Current Bitcoin price assumed at $59,000.
