finding it very hard to comprehend narratives about the just and legal way courts, ministers and legal authorities are affecting the market.

One reason Bitcoin was created because the banks around the world stole everyone's money 2008 GFC

yet here we are quoting these authorities as gospel

With so much corruption it is easy to ascertain what those in position of market manipulation are doing, they nearly all tied at the hip and benefiting of each others knowledge


I dont think the deal with the banks is new especially.   Bank failures have occurred previously, boom situations that blew up even but the most obvious difference now is large central government.   The banks are a side story, the main reason why banks could not be allowed to fail in 2008 was because they are backstopping the government debt that has become so common.   Is that what made the Lehmans CEO so damned determined to carry on, he calculated on this effect.  Certainly debt influence is evident in Japan and USA and many other western economies with faltering GDP growth for many years.

Im told China has a debt problem, they have a lower working population occurring every year but I dont think thats going to be a near term failure for them.    But the banks I dont see as the primary cause of past or future failures, I think its something like 90% of mortgage debt in USA is operated by government.   Part of the story for 2008 was loan rates set low by Federal reserve dictating its central interest rate from coast to coast.  It was wrong to do that in some areas, maybe overall it was wrong but nobody can challenge a bank of that power and size.
  Like that line I heard, when the dot com bubble burst the prices for houses in silcon valley went up.  Im not blaming the banks for that strange price movement, I blame the system of subsidies that comes via central government

  It might have banks dealing in it but its the government allowing that debt to occur and accumulate further.   The normal process is for debt to get called out, rates rise and ratings reduce for those with poor history.   Theres a kickback effect to poor returns that restricts further growth of those negatives.
Government is not a competitive market, it can become massively wrong because it goes unchallenged.   I dont care who in politics is right or wrong but the system overall of untested debt, non competitive market and unilateral laws is probably allowing a greater future failure to build up.    That means 2008 is going to reoccur  in some shape or form.  Those events were just a tremor compared to future failure seems likely, going by trillions owed and trade deficits etc.


Hows that pair into crypto I dont know.   At least one view I heard is crypto relies on loose dollar and cant survive without it.    Or it might thrive with the world aware and accepting debt must be ended/paid, leading to devaluation of dollar and higher prices for everything priced in dollar

I shit you not, I just saw a full video ad for this ICO pop up on Youtube

https://repocoin.io/

Unfuckingbelievable what a scam this is. Their so-called "use case" makes zero, absolutely zero, fkn sense. Not to mention no sense why it would have any tradable value whatsoever.

Quote
How Repo Coin Works

1. Download our mobile app once its available and scan license plates in any public space.

2. If a license plate is tagged for repossession, an alert is sent to the app user, the lender and the vehicle recovery agent.

3. A recovery truck is dispatched, and the process to return the vehicle to the lender is immediately underway.

Are people this gullible?

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?

The more I learn about TA the more I think it's all bullshit and not much different than astrology.

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.
