Coincidentally-Russian-owned Standard reports https://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/pub-renamed-trump-arms-for-presidential-visit-a3879986.html
Turner-owned tv has a new show https://www.nbcnews.com/pop-culture/tv/new-game-show-paid-offers-chance-eliminate-student-loan-debt-n890316

From Neil Postman's "Amusing Ourselves to Death" (1985) (via @bitstein)
Does that mean "Ignore anything outside of your backyard and lead a happier, more meaningful life"?

That argument doesn't seem too relevant to the studen loan issue (except for the peculiar quiz show prize).
I'm not sure I follow.

BTW, as you undoubtedly know quite well living on the older side of the Pond, in most parts of the world public education is reasonably effective and free - or priced outside of the debt-inducing threshold (yes it means subsidized). Extortionately priced education is an almost exclusive feature of the "land of the free".

Intriguingly, you once said you prefer an essay to a video, or similar, but it seems you are not entirely impervious to the 'graphic revolution'. Nor am I. But it has lead us to a time where we just point and say, "Look there are Trump supporters in the UK, so life is fair and equal" and "look at these silly mugs on the tv begging for their sovereignty. One of them even gets to go free, so life is marvelous". Just as in the videos called 'Hunger Games' or 'Black Mirror'. This 'pointing' gets us nowhere.

Meanwhile the universities, funded by whichever local scamola or chumpatron, are not teaching anything of any value to the students themselves. Anything that might combat the visual fog of today's virtual slave empire.

Here, a person, her gender and nationality irrelevant, but her 'education' 'imperial', is 'bright' enough to go hiking in Austria because it's the done thing, but has no skills to cope with the real world smacking her in the face: https://www.dw.com/en/american-tourist-takes-unexploded-wwii-munition-to-vienna-airport/a-44611194

Here I've made 3 or 4 assumptions, but they stem from how I see the world, and I beg you to start looking at it more critically too.

You're right on essays vs videos. Impervious to graphic revolution - of course not. Who is or can be, nowadays?

I agree universities are becoming irrelevant to real world training - with a few important exceptions.

This looks as a serious case of stupidity. So how is it connected to our discussion? Because it shows "proper" education wasn't able to drill any sense into the dumb tourist's head?

I'm all for critical thinking, and try to exercise it when I see a chance. About the specific topic of student loans, universities, and so on, a good perspective on education is essential to get a glimpse of where we're going to a few years from now. That's why I'm interested in your point of view - but I still can't see what you're pointing to (if you're actually pointing to something). Or am I lost looking at your finger?

Please be more explicit if you can be bothered (and I would excuse you if you can't).

You're right, twitter is probably doomed in the long run, but buying b.info and making it into a proper bitcoin company is mooted as a move to put that off for a while.

it appears that the CME is experiencing major issues, in some reported cases not accepting buy orders.

So by extension does this mean that sell orders were being accepted at this time?

EDIT2: Managed to wait for a bunch more channels to properly close out [...] making it more like ~0.19BTC that is was either spent, lost to bugs, or blown on channel open/close fees. Not that unreasonable, all things considered.

This post will age poorly Bob. Thanks for testing and using the Lightning network though.

Updated figures as of late last night put the total "loss" at ~0.088BTC - Hoping that will age slightly better.

Dare to dream what sort of purchasing power 0.088BTC will have in the next two to three years...

At least all this hammering of the price leads to (the chance on) pressing a stronger bottom. Better bounce, better ensuing rally, better chances of following a H2 2013 scenario.
