Bitcoin - Resistance-turned-support edition:



It's looking pretty good so far; however, if this support breaks down yet again, $5750 will be back in play.

Aye, my lambo be a rhetorical lambo, not a literal Lambo. Hell, I drive a 20 year old full-size van. Then again, my rhetorical lambo cost quite a bit more than a literal Lambo.

Hopefully, you are not driving one of those windowless vans... hahahahahaha

Hey, I am neither opposed to practicality or luxury; however, when we look at the lambo in my thinking it has a very narrow set of uses - and in that regard, I have not really been into two seaters - even though I suppose the sunday drive at the beach would be one of those uses or the sheer power or the ability to flaunt wealth because I would not believe they hold value well and are kind of a money pit for maintenance and repair expenses.


Twenty years is really getting up their with vehicles, and I really got spoiled with built in bluetooth, and some of the other improvements of modern vehicles - including ride quality.

It's on my to-do list. Just not very high.

Actually, I was never much of a new car person, until about 8 years ago.  I had never really liked the immediate depreciation aspect.  

In 2010, I had been working so much and I had really built up a decent nest egg of cash reserves.  Accordingly, when my main car was going on the fritz, I really could not justify attempting to repair it or shopping around for another used car.  I decided to go with new, and also to go with a kind of luxury brand.  The transition was really nice, and soon after taking the plunge, I was wondering why it had taken me so long to treat myself to something really nice - especially when I was using my car fairly regularly... maybe sometimes it does just take a bit of an emergency situation to cause a transition.  I suppose if my car had not gone on the blitz, and I did not really have time for diddle daddling around, I may not have taken such a plunge - there was a bit of spontaneity and simultaneous necessity for me, at that time... even while it ended up swimming in a higher kind of luxury than I had previously been used to... while at the same time, I think that it helped my social status, at the time, too... for whatever that is worth?

wow,
 yogi and Jay aren't swearing at each other...we are progressing folks...bullish...

It's a sign of complacency... perhaps we need higher pain amongst everyone in order to rise to "bullish"?

The trick is to have the money come to you. I believe it was Warren Buffett who said that if you're not making money while you sleep, you'll work your whole life.

I like this part, and it sounds good in theory while remaining difficult in practice.. unless you prepare for a decent amount of time to get to that stage of passive income... and living within your means... if your passive income increases, then your means can increase too.

That, living within your means is a big part of it. Losers spend their money before they earn it. They take on mortgages and buy merchandise on time. They're losing money while they sleep paying compound interest.

Those who skimp on luxuries, hold off on buying things they don't absolutely need, and invest their money in things that earn more money are already compounding in their own way. When you must buy something, buy high-quality used stuff cheap.

I try to get ahead by trading cheap city dollars for cheap jungle time. Money comes easily here but time is always short. Down there there's lots of time but little money. When I go down I take money. When I come back I'm re-energized by the time I bought down there. That's what traders have always done, transport commodities to where there's more demand.

Great insight, Jimbo.

Yeah... thing is, the full-size van form factor just works for me. If someone made a van with interior trim up to luxury car standards, this woulda been a done deal already. Alas, no. So my decision is to abandon the form factor I desire and get a pickup, or settle for the comparatively downmarket experience of a van. Either seems a compromise, which makes me need to consider other platforms*. Which leads to indecision. ::sigh::

*i.e., maybe Tesla X?

Oh well, the wife is the car guy in this family, anyhoo.

That's what I started to think that there has to be another form factor that would work because form factors are always changing, yet in the USA, BIG is in so there has to be some variations of luxury BIG that will allow for upgrading and bringing the modern electronics into the mix...  ... because a 20 year vehicle starts to have a lot of lackings in terms of modern upgrades and just wear and tear that had already taken place even just from mere passage of time deterioration... there are also lower entry level new cars that offer standard features that would not even have been offered 10 years ago, based on technological automotive improvements

The modem thing blows my mind because anyone who has been around longer then a decade knows the internet used to be slow as hell.   Australia especially, their internet sucks so I dont understand that exactly.
  All I guess there that makes sense is he just used university internet and didnt have much interest beyond that like the codec revisions to normal telephone usage.  But he is interested in crypto protocols somehow, seems a bit off.   How can he be the age he is and not recognise 27mb is a very big file to transmit for the old technology.   Thats not even a crypto question, how long has he used computers for


The BTC price is below 50% tracement level for the last peak to trough decline.  Lows are the 50 DMA area just beaten.   7500 area would be good resistance and 38% of the larger May to June peak into decline move

His countrymen put CSW in the context of Australia's tradition of brash, unabashed confidence men. I read an article somewhere about that. Maybe I can find it. It was quite good.

Being rich is having money: being wealthy is having time

Time and money are negotiable.
One of the key truths in life is that each of us has a certain amount of time that is, for all intents and purposes, set. It's the one thing you really can't buy more of, but you can use what time you have to the greatest extent possible.

In my world, I can do something myself, or pay someone else to do it for me. If I enjoy doing it, why pay someone else. If I don't the question becomes can I do something more valuable with that time while someone else does the thing in question.

Case in point: Last weekend I needed to replace the fan and other belts on my 928. I also had to weed the garden, it really needed it. So I used Takl to find someone to weed the garden for a hundred bucks while I spent some of the time replacing the belts (something I enjoy) and drinking seltzer in the hammock (something I enjoy) while this person did the weeding (something I enjoy less). It would have cost $500 plus an hour dropping off and picking up the car for a mechanic to do it, so I came out ahead and prevented a decrease in my net worth. That made sense.

I like the concept of jungle time: If that recharges you and allows you to come back to the world to make more money then it's a good thing. Myself, I like to invest money in the finest swiss tools and reflow equipment; I can then use that to fix miners and stuff to make more money. Buying cheaper things is doable, but the lost time dealing with crappy tools prevents me from making more money (well, bitcoins).

Interesting thoughts. I may never buy a new car or house, but that's mainly because I derive pleasure, fulfillment, and enlightment from fixing stuff and keeping it running. As long as the pleasure outweighs the cost it's good. When the cost outweighs the pleasure it's time to get rid of the car or house or tool.

I like this thread, makes me think. Good use of my time, even with all the ass eating and race baiting.
