I wonder if filling this thing with hydrogen was really the best idea.

It's a typical idiotic bitcoin shill post.  He describes the dollar as a walking dead man (which is true), then pretends bitcoin is somehow next in line should anything happen to the dollar while pretending silver and gold don't exist.  The fundamentals of these designed to centralize craptocurrencies are complete garbage compared to silver and gold, which is why it's impossible for them to defeat metals as the base of Exter's Pyramid and unit of account of everything when the fiat paper scam implodes.  

His last name is also (((Bernstein))), so he will probably be in criminal detention camp with all the other Jews after the debt based Hebrew banking scam blows up.



^Typical lying douchebag bitcoin shill (he is a Jew after all).  Bitcoin does not do any of those things because transaction validators are designed to centralize making it a dystopian, slumlord technocracy and permissioned ledger, while silver and gold already have the necessary qualities of money for 13 billion years now, yet he claims bitcoin is the "only" way to have a sound economic system LOL.  God I'm so tired of lying kikes.

Chocolate Babka

If you’ve ever tried to recreate something you loved when you were growing up in your own kitchen, you know how difficult it can to match your taste memory to the reality of ingredients and step-by-step directions. Sometimes, even when you get the flavor right, it doesn’t feel right, but you hold out for those rare times that everything falls into place.

First, it’s completely over-the-top. The chocolate to bread-like dough ratio is unseemly. It often seemed impossible that they could construct something with even more filling than structure. I rejected all of the recipes that didn’t suggest a mind-boggling amount of chocolate.

Second, the quintessential taste is not just chocolate, no siree: it’s chocolate-cinnamon. Rejecting all the recipes that didn’t play on this combination, the stack of possibilities further thinned.

Finally, the chocolate babka we grew up eating had an extra little something-something–streusel topping with a few chunks that always fell into the twists and folds–something I remember clearly from all the times we’d pick the pieces out, or fight over those with the biggest pebbles. Almost all the recipes I looked at involved no streusel.

For real, people, this nearly ties with those pecan bars as the most fattening thing I have ever made. Two and a quarter pounds of chocolate. One and a quarter pounds of butter. A pound and a half of sugar. The truth is, this recipe made me a nervous wreck. The cost of the ingredients and caloric heft of them aside, it was a tremendous amount of work, a true labor of love, a task not eased by a kitchen with just a single eensy counter.

But I’m not here to complain, because the effort was not for naught. We cut into a single slice hot from the oven Wednesday night, unable to hold off any longer, and were just stunned. It is exactly what we remember. Callebraut chocolate, other top-notch ingredients and no extended wait on a supermarket shelf made it, dare I say, even better.

Chocolate Babka

When shaping the babka, twist dough evenly throughout the length of the roll a full 5 to 6 turns. The babka can be prepared up to step 8 and frozen for up to a month before baking. When ready to bake, remove from freezer; let stand at room temperature for about 5 hours, and bake.

Makes 3 loaves (but I made two full-sized and three miniature ones)

✡ 1 1/2 cups warm milk, 110 degrees
✡ 2 (1/4 ounce each) packages active dry yeast
✡ 1 3/4 cups plus a pinch of sugar
✡ 3 whole large eggs, room temperature
✡ 2 large egg yolks, room temperature
✡ 6 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
✡ 1 teaspoon salt
✡ 1 3/4 cups (3 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces, room temperature, plus more for bowl and loaf pans
✡ 2 1/4 pounds semisweet chocolate, very finely chopped*
✡ 2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
✡ 1 tablespoon heavy cream

Streusel topping

1.   Pour warm milk into a small bowl. Sprinkle yeast and pinch of sugar over milk; let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.

2.   In a bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup sugar, 2 eggs, and egg yolks. Add egg mixture to yeast mixture, and whisk to combine.

3.   In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine flour and salt. Add egg mixture, and beat on low speed until almost all the flour is incorporated, about 30 seconds. Change to the dough hook. Add 2 sticks butter, and beat until flour mixture and butter are completely incorporated, and a smooth, soft dough that’s slightly sticky when squeezed is formed, about 10 minutes.

4.   Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead a few turns until smooth. Butter a large bowl. Place dough in bowl, and turn to coat. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Set aside in a warm place to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

5.   Place chocolate, remaining cup sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl, and stir to combine. Using two knives or a pastry cutter, cut in remaining 1 1/2 sticks butter until well combined; set filling aside.

6.   Generously butter three 9-by-5-by-2 3/4-inch loaf pans; line them with parchment paper. Beat remaining egg with 1 tablespoon cream; set egg wash aside. Punch back the dough, and transfer to a clean surface. Let rest 5 minutes. Cut into 3 equal pieces. Keep 2 pieces covered with plastic wrap while working with the remaining piece. On a generously floured surface, roll dough out into a 16-inch square; it should be 1/8 inch thick.

7.   Brush edges with reserved egg wash. Crumble 1/3 of the reserved chocolate filling evenly over dough, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Refresh egg wash if needed. Roll dough up tightly like a jelly roll. Pinch ends together to seal. Twist 5 or 6 turns. Brush top of roll with egg wash. Carefully crumble 2 tablespoons filling over the left half of the roll, being careful not to let mixture slide off. Fold right half of the roll over onto the coated left half. Fold ends under, and pinch to seal. Twist roll 2 turns, and fit into prepared pan. Repeat with the remaining 2 pieces of dough and remaining filling.

8.   Heat oven to 350 degrees. Brush the top of each loaf with egg wash. Crumble 1/3 of streusel topping over each loaf. Loosely cover each pan with plastic wrap, and let stand in a warm place 20 to 30 minutes.

9.   Bake loaves, rotating halfway through, until golden, about 55 minutes. Lower oven temperature to 325 degrees and bake until babkas are deep golden, 15 to 20 minutes more. Remove from oven, and transfer to wire racks until cool. Remove from pans; serve. Babkas freeze well for up to 1 month.

Streusel Topping

Makes 3 3/4 cups.

✡ 1 2/3 cups confectioners’ sugar
✡ 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
✡ 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

In a large bowl, combine sugar, flour, and butter. Using a fork, stir until fully combined with clumps ranging in size from crumbs to 1 inch.

Thanks again r0ach. That last recipe was pretty decent. Will try this one Friday night.

Unlikely to launch into a 150 page tome without at least some description of why it may be relevant to my life.



The Richest Man in Babylon is a book by George Samuel Clason that dispenses financial advice through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon. Through their experiences in business and managing household finance, the characters in the parables learn simple lessons in financial wisdom.

So I guess it teaches you how to be wise with money, has quite high ratings aswell according to google. Haven't read it yet, but I'll probably give it a shot.

2) ongoing mtgox manipulation:  This subject matter of mtgox manipulation comes off as another one of those distracting and misleading talking points that seems to infiltrate into a lot of discussions, including discussions by seemingly smart people who are finding a pattern or attempting to find a pattern.  I remain of the "who gives a shit" perspective on this particular talking point.  Sure, you can include mtgox into your analysis, but it remains one of many factors that seems retrospectively over-hyped.  For example, when the trustee first began to sell coins between December and February, those sales were not getting too much publicity, but after the fact, they are being described as if they were in the public consciousness at the time of the initial dumps and able to affect the price.  I remain of the perspective that there was so much trade volume between December and January that the mtgox coin dumps were quite unlikely to have any kind of meaningful effect, but such supposed effect has been exaggerated after the fact in order to attempt to get affect on the current price dynamics,  and in order to attempt to shake some additional weak hands of their bitcoins.

So the BTC ETF victims of Wall Street got (somewhat) GOXed?

I don't think you really appreciate the power of TA. The simplest daily 50/200 MA Golden Cross would have told you to start buying bitcoin at $415 and hold. When the 3 day RSI hit an unprecedented 92.99 price was over $16,000 and was a clear signal to start selling. If you missed the top there was a dead cat bounce to $17,000 before the 50/200 Death Cross final exit signal occurred at $9300. Until daily 50 MA crosses above the 200 again we are in a bear market. Every bear market is different; this one might only last 6 months but a year is quite possible until sellers are done.

Now can we get on with doing the same for all the mETH heads and all the ICO shitcoin lovers?


The only ICO that isn't for a shitcoin is the HoweyCoins ICO that's endorsed by theymos and all the mods. It's officially registered with the U.S. government and SEC compliant. You are GUARANTEED PROFIT from your investment from it.

Theymos himself made its announcement thread.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3920469.0

Invest all your Bitcoins in it, and if you don't have any money to invest get a huge loan.

This is the bounty thread.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4029040.0

Theymos GUARANTEES PROFIT from it.

Et tu, Theymos?

This is a helpful campaign.
https://www.investor.gov/howeycoins

However the thing that bothers me, is that even if an ICO has none of the things listed on that page it is STILL a scam. Period. It doesn't matter what the devs claim, or what the "parameters" are. Trying to differentiate one from another doesn't matter. All ICOs are scams.

Penny stocks are complete scams endorsed by the SEC. They are fraud. So are ICOs. Same thing with different name.

Strange!  Is Theymos account stolen?  Has he done this kind of shit before?  Is this the biggest scam in crypto?  WTF?

Yeah.. seems like a similarly obvious joke as his April fools joke, even while we are not in April no more. Go figure?

One of the advisers of the show was on consensus talking about blockchain or crypto.

Its really getting cray cray how mainstream is adopting crypto. Did you see Billions with the 1 mio usb stick? I do enjoy that show.

Been thinking about 280 trillion dollars of global wealth. This is by far a more significant number than what I used doing those back of the napkin calc's before. I used 80t...so times 3x what I was doodling with before. Someone mentioned it at the time..thanks.

Quote
Global Wealth Report 2017
9/2017
According to the eighth edition of the Credit Suisse Research Institute's Global Wealth Report, in the year to mid-2017, total global wealth rose at a rate of 6.4%, the fastest pace since 2012 and reached USD 280 trillion. This reflected widespread gains in equity markets matched by similar rises in non-financial assets, which moved above the pre-crisis year 2007's level for the first time this year. Wealth growth also outpaced population growth, so that global mean wealth per adult grew by 4.9% and reached a new record high of USD 56,540 per adult. This year, the report includes a focus on Millennials' wealth position and provides a comparison with earlier generations
http://publications.credit-suisse.com/tasks/render/file/index.cfm?fileid=12DFFD63-07D1-EC63-A3D5F67356880EF3

.05% of 280t=140b or almost exactly bitcoins MC.

Percent of global adoption..what did we say?  About .05%? With a upwards limit of perhaps 5% aware of bitcoin and actively trying to accumulate..somewhere in there. Hmm..one order of magnitude larger. So..140b becomes 1.4t becomes 14t and so on. I think the cryptocurrency MC as a whole could reach 5 to 15 trillion within the next several years..say 2025. I feel this is a extremely conservative estimation. These first couple of jumps are going to be something else to see. It all seems to align, its almost as if..  Well, its very interesting to me to say the least.

---------------
To many numbers to deal with tonight..have a chart instead.  Tongue
Retesting some of these short period fibonacci lines. Hodling at the .5 retrace for now. Going deeper towards that 0.786 fib might cause me to reconsider things.
A following sea and a bit of swell might cause a bit of unpleasantness until we clear the channel. Probably just some chop as mentioned.


To end on a positive..check out this TEDtalk if you have time. Its about happiness. I was surprised at some of the figures and it changed my perspective somewhat.
Just shows to go ya how mainstream media and these "social" sites are all doom and gloom. ftf(them)

They know the goose bump formula even on stupid meaningless things. They probably have a class on it in film school. But mix that with something meaningful that I'm already passionate about, yea, same here, major goose bumps. Someone who writes for that show sounds like a super cool guy.
