TBDR <<-- Too Big Didn't Read

I'm going to make up a new acronym for "did not read word too big" I'm sick of googling a word if it's only used to make you look intelligent.

Don't feel too bad about having anything written by anonymint going over your head. That guy is in a league of his own. Usually, just to get a dim inkling of understanding any of his posts requires many hours of research. However, if you do make the attempt to try and decipher his message, it usually leads to a much deeper understanding of how BTC actually works.

agreed. once you start reading the linked stuff (which will require a LOT of time) much of it makes a lot of sense (not that i pretend to understand most of it, i just cant keep up). just be prepared to possibly have some of your beliefs about btc/crypto challenged.

More Bcash double spendings  Shocked

https://doublespend.cash/

jbreher the BCash lover wants to go on and on about how Bitcoin fungibility is somehow "compromised" with SegWit.

But on this BCash compromise (ie. complete failure)? Dead silence. Crickets.

Complete failure? Not at all. For those transactions worth waiting for, you can wait for block inclusion. It is an option that BTC does not give you.

Nice fkn spin there jbreher. You think you're the teflon man, but you aren't. Just a bullshitter.

I suppose by your reasoning then I can say that in Bitcoin for those that don't want to use SW, the legacy wallet addresses still work just fine. It is an option that BCH does not give you.

Yes, you can. Well, as far as you are willing to trace the origin of the coins on your non-Segwit address back to their coinbase transactions. Your point?

Nobody has been claiming that doublespends are impossible. The argument is that the potential for doublespends is a manageable cost of doing business.

For example, if a coffee shop (coffee is our canonical example, right?) can sell 1000 more coffees by accepting unconfirmed transactions, at the cost of one successful doublespend transaction, accepting such is still a profitable exercise.

Unbelievable. Such insane BCash confirmation bias. If Bitcoin had this blatant flaw right now, you'd be screaming. The whole community would be having a cow over it. Especially because 0 confirmation is not and has never been "Satoshi's original vision" which the BCashtards like you want to so desperately drone on about.

For example, if a coffee shop (coffee is our canonical example, right?) can sell 1000 more coffees by accepting unconfirmed transactions, at the cost of one successful doublespend transaction, accepting such is still a profitable exercise.

That's fucking bullshit and again, your insane fallacy. There won't be "one successful doublespend", there will be hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands. It pretty much torpedoes BCash ever being adopted as a mainstream merchant currency.

You really. Need. To. Fucking. Stop.

Oooh ! Good idea ! Now I need to figure out how to upload transparencies. My prior efforts have resulted in the transparent areas rendering as black, so obviously doing something wrong somewhere.

Never imagined I would spend retirement trying to figure out how to upload dildo/penis images as transparencies to a Lightning Network-powered image board.

Life is good.

BTC gives you the option to use Layer 2.
BCH give you the option to risk being ripped off.

I would not disagree with those points. However, I would add two of my own:
There is nothing within the current architecture of BCH that precludes future layer 2 solutions.
In many areas, profit is a premium earned for taking on risk. There are solid business use cases where accepting the risk of a doublespend transaction actually leads to greater profit.

Defend bcash at any cost?  Do you frequently fail to think through more than one angle?

You attempt to suggest that bitcoiners are less empowered because bitcoin does not allow for zero confirmations; however, on an individual level you can come to all kinds of agreements, such as paying money to someone or providing a service before the bitcoins are confirmed.  Also, if you go through a third party service connected with bitcoin, you are also going to have all kinds of zero confirmation options.  So your inference that options are not available to bitcoiners, is weak at best.

Furthermore, if the credibility of your whole asset system is compromised because of a security weak feature, such as zero confirmation transactions, wouldn't that weakness undermine the whole value of the asset?

You bcash crazies gotta think further down the road than to feel that you immediately want some stupid ass feature, whether that is zero confirmation of infinitely sized block limits, and your whole fucking system is going to converge towards zero value based on these choices to compromise security based on pie in the sky (and likely unnecessary) wishes for on chain expediency.

Anyone got experience with the stuff Alex Jones sells?

 My brother tried Super Male Vitality but he said it was making him get angry at work so he stopped taking it.  

That would be expected with something like that. Men are the ones who go out and kill stuff, if it actually makes us think in a more masculine way then yeah he's gonna get pissed at all the girly men at work.

It's hard killing things. I deer hunt, and feel bad every time I shoot one. Another one of man's burdens I guess.

Wild animal is likely one of the most nutritious of foods (bang for the buck), of course there is nutrition in the fat too, especially if they are able to eat their natural foods rather than force fed a purposefully fattening diet (referring to omega 3 versus omega 6 fats - and better fed animals would likely have a higher omega 3 to omega 6 ratio).  

Sometimes, I wonder if men could evolve to be vegetarians rather than omnivores when it seems that there is so much nutrition in meat that is much more bio-available, rather than forcing survival through something like a vegetarian diet that tends to take a bit more maintenance to make sure that you don't kill yourself by pursuing such non-meat eating diet?  Do you tend to eat the whole deer or are their some wasted parts?  Might make you feel somewhat better if you engage in some of those kinds of efficiency practices?

What really piss me, is that there is still not sufficient despair around this forum. Even me, I still hope for btc to pump again soon, this is totally different from 2014 lows, when I was crying alone and thinking about cutting my losses. We need more desperation for the new lows to be confirmed and for tge crypto winter end. Please everybody turn bearish now, maybe we can shake the weak hands faster that way, this bleeding is killing my hope...(and this is good for btc price)


If you want to get history correct, then hopefully we are in a 2015 like period right now, rather than a 2014 like period because if we are in a 2014 like period, then there could be a long way to go before either the correction is over or the community as a whole is sufficiently ready to resume UP. 

Whatever the process, it is likely that you cannot really rush it.  The market is going to do what it is going to do, and in that regard, if you believe that there might be more down, then go ahead, sell.  I personally only believe in buying as or if the price goes down unless there is some kind of immediate situation that might cause me to see an inevitable and large price fall from our current place - which does not seem to be the current price status of bitcoin.

I don't suggest anything of the sort. I suggest that BTC'ers are less empowered because BTC actively weakens the ability to profitably accept zero confirmation transactions.

My wife grew up in the Philippines, living partly on wild animals. So, she like to cook everything - lungs, stomach, intestines, kidneys, heart, head, etc. I'm not a picky eater, so I'll eat organ meat too.

I suppose that should make me feel better. There's also a good feeling in bringing a dead animal back to your family. It awakens some primordial hunter/provider feelings.
