I can't blame you. Just do three years of almost nothing and you're on the sunshine list (the government 100k annual salary list) it seems. I wouldn't call it almost nothing, but ... it does take some guts to do whatever it is they have to do.

I have other reasons for joining ... but those might not be applicable in a few years, or a few months from now, depends.

Well, Jimbo seems to like it alright here. But it's a tough town to bustle in. International competition from every corner of the world is squeezing out a whole generation of young go-getters.

You know exactly where I'm coming from.
The local authorities can be.. . difficult.
That sounds like a pretty tough place. Technically I need a Lambo like I need a hole in my head: I have a 10 mile commute to work and either the Porsche or the Prius can do it quite easily. It's just that I have more of a smile on my face with the Porsche.

If my commute was an hour to drive 20 miles with bumper to bumper I'd drive the crap box all the time. Or have a driver and said Maybach.

I now have this image in my head of a desert night, sky all black and starry and a big bonfire surrounded by a ring of Lambos. It's the meeting of the Bitcoin tribe, they have come to pay homage to the Bitcoin God....

Ok, time for bed.

Some guy has been busting out car windows on my street three times a week for a year. I'd have to move to a nicer neighbourhood. A Porsche would be an inconvenience.

The only point of having a Lambo is part of the "peacocking" process where you are displaying your prowess (wealth) to the opposite sex and to others in the hopes of achieving higher social standing and thus being able to obtain a better mate and ensure the survival and prosperity of your offspring.

Totally legit human desire.

Not all that necessary though. When I had my Porsche I found it quite futile when trying to pick up women. I'd be in the bar, my Porsche sitting outside in the parking lot...no assistance to my game. Now I drive a 2005 Hyundai but have the hottest girlfriend I've ever had.

While I was in high school, I got a classmate who basically drove a Testarossa to school everyday.  One time, he got a suspension from school for a week, and was forced by his parents to attend a public school for a few days.  Not surprisingly, his Testarossa got smashed up and his face punched in on the first day.  

There is also this dad who would show up occasionally in his Lotus Esprit to pick up his daughter from school.  One time he showed up with a girl who looked and dressed younger than his daughter.  
"Hey, I didn't know that you had a sister?"
"NO, that's my new mom."
"Oh..."

Driving a classy antique and people might give you a thumbs up and chitchat with you.  Driving a Countach to school or to work and people might give you the finger and gossip behind your back.  Might as well get a chauffeur who can double as bodyguard, which I do see quite a few people do in real life.

Maybe we should change the poll to "how many Trabis are you gonna buy".

I am an investor. I am interested in block size. Ergo, claim is demonstrated as false.

Ok. I'll rephrase that in a manner that even you can identify with.

"Not one investor is remotely interested in blocksize, capacity or any other monetary vehicular niceties if it means the loss of 90% of the value of their holdings". (As it does when a suffix is added to the word "Bitcoin").

In other words, the market is arbitrating between stores of value and technologically versatile investments. Bitcoin is the latter so in that respect the one with the least tampering will be considered to have the maximum store of value. It doesn't need to support a gazillion transactions per second, it only needs to be more valuable than it was last year and support 7 transactions per second.

For performance and functionality, the market looks to either Visa or alts.

After all, bitcoin's marketcap is now $100 billion and up 10x since the time when scaling debate really got heated.  

What do you mean by "heated?"   I think 10x is considerably understated... 

I think that the scaling debate was already going pretty hard when the price was in the $250s - and sure it "heated" up  more during the several month waiting period in early 2016, while BTC prices were floating between about $350 and $450.

But choosing any of those numbers would provide us with way more than 10x price appreciation during these ongoing nonsensical scaling debates (really attacks on bitcoin)

As I type BTC prices are bouncing between $7200 and $7400 - so I am going to use $7,300 as a price reference.  So let's look what is our current price appreciation that has taken place since the "scaling debate really got heated":

1) $250   -  29.2x

2) $350 - 20.86 x

3) $450 - 16.22 x


So, yeah, these nut job big blockers have been arguing doom and gloom of bitcoin since before $250 and arguing "scale or die" until they have been blue in the face, and the market does not seem to give a ratt's ass about their supposed doom and gloom assessments.

Does it care, this time?   I doubt it.  Sure we could have  BTC price corrections for other reasons, and yeah the fucking nutjob BIG blockers come in and say:  "I told you that we needed to scale.. blah blah blah"   So fucking what?  They are wrong and sure sooner or later, it seems that they could be right, but they are NOT correct.  There is no bitcoin scaling problem except in their fabrication and their ongoing attacks and largely the public, the smart money and the BTC market overall seems to appreciate bitcoin does not have these kinds of nonsensical made up problems that are overhyped on an ongoing basis.

Blockchain protocol changes demand explicit, not implicit consent. So long as the cost of validating the network is low enough for most users to at least have the option to do so this will remain true.

Third parties may believe they can leverage their role as service providers and custodians to side-step this through attempts like Segwit2x, but they ultimately cannot force the network’s fully validating nodes to follow their new rules. Nor can they force their users or the wider market to demand their new token.

What necessarily follows from these facts is a new model of governance where politicking is supplanted by voluntary association, and the concept of representation is rendered obsolete by self-sovereignty. Segwit2x is a compromise the participants simply never had the power or authority to make.

If Segwit2x were to succeed in being collectively labeled as bitcoin, it must be despite the disagreement of the ecosystems vast majority of validating economic nodes.

This would mean that the coordinated actions of a few of the ecosystem’s large and visible players can unilaterally change the rules of the bitcoin protocol, a fact which would render bitcoin's reputation as a censorship-resistant store of value all but worthless.

Simply put, if these companies are successful in unilaterally changing the network rules without widespread consensus, then bitcoin would have failed.

sucking corporate dick and getting banged by chinese miners is not bitcoin ... that's just more of the same, "meet the new boss, same as the old boss" politicking, lying, cheating, stealing BS.

Self-sovereignty is what makes bitcoin valuable, you're gonna get #r3kt and have a bad time if you choose to do business with bitcoin and ignore that simple fact.

Exchanges have also largely recognized "legacy" bitcoin, and after the fork, that Segwit2x coins will be treated as separate units of value. This is opposed to Segwit2x's original intention and goal, which was to seamlessly replace the current bitcoin protocol and the corresponding unit of value.

Quote
... it is likely that the Segwit2x agreement will only continue to lose more support prior to the activation date. Indeed, perhaps the only reason that we haven't seen more of this already is that there is little incentive for these companies to be among the first to back out of their agreement while there remains time before they are required to actually act on it.

By virtue of this, should Segwit2x launch at all, it will likely debut with much less than currently advertised support. Thus, signers are faced with the actual risk and cost of following through given the clear division in the ecosystem.

When even a ... 'full-stack javascript developer teaching at the Ironhack coding bootcamp in Miami, and a Henry Hazlitt fellow in Digital Development at the Foundation for Economic Education'

... understands bitcoin better than the suits.

C'mon, Barry, give it up now.
