It's odd that bitcoin jumped $25 in the last hour on coinbase but nowhere else, must be slippage. *shrugs shoulders*

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

"The recent weakness of bears reminds me of a similar but reverse situation that I felt in the first week of Jan 2018 after the Christmas dump. There were some upward movements but they looked so soft and unconvincing that something felt different about them compared to earlier in 2017. There was a sense (on hindsight though) that bulls were distinctly weak and that bears could seize the moment any time. Now it is the reverse where some minor pushdowns are happening but in a very unconvincing way and suggestive that bulls are in control and will eventually take over (as did bears after mid Jan 2018)."

Hey I’m not the one opening “no deal” command posts in nuclear bunkers !

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6834367/Cobra-committee-takes-No-Deal-amid-moves-activate-Operation-Yellowhammer-Monday.html

The Economist has this to say:

Quote
A REFRIGERATED PLANE flying round-the-clock sallies to bring medicine to a besieged population, emergency waste centres established to deal with overflowing rubbish and martial law imposed on a restive population as the queen is whisked from the capital by helicopter to escape rioters. Leaks from the government’s preparations for a no-deal Brexit sometimes sound as if they have come from the imagination of a pulp-fiction novelist. Many Brexiteers blame the alternately frightening and farcical stories on dastardly “Remoaner” officials, working to undermine the case for leaving without a deal.

Have you read the conversations about rejuvenation and halting aging we've had on the WO?

Also, what's a term insurance and how can it cover $500k over 10 years with only $30 per month? Takes 1389 years without compounding to get to $500k at that rate, so I'm kinda confused.

I may have missed the anti-aging discussion, but I think I can guess. Or rather, I have my own ideas. Proper diet. Exercise, or rather resistance training.

Term insurance is ...

You pay $30 a month. You are insured with a death benefit of $500k. Your rate does not change for 10 years. You are covered as long as you keep paying the $30 every month (put it on a credit card or your bank account or something, so it doesn't miss payments.)

So, yes, in about 10 years, you only paid $3600. If you don't die, then nothing happens. If you do die, your beneficiary (usually the spouse or children) get paid $500k.

The rates depend on your age at the time you get the policy, and some other life style factors, like if you smoke or not, but the numbers are close enough.

The insurance company makes money hoping you don't actually die, and millions of other people got the same plan and none of them die. Or you lapse on a payment and the policy is cancelled. Or you cancel it early. They have people who calculate the odds and they are called "actuaries" who make "actuarial studies".

Term insurance or term life insurance is different from permanent life insurance such as whole life, universal life, and variable universal life. And sometimes those other things have riders and/or investment add ons, or return your premiums after 20 years. But all those extras cost more. So the insurance company makes money. They don't try to sell you just term insurance.

Usually, when a client asks for term insurance, the agent doesn't even bother trying to sell you anything else (except maybe a bundle that includes your life, your car and your house) because they know you did the math already.

More details here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Term_life_insurance

I just did a sample quote from State Farm for 40 years old, 10 year term, $500k coverage. The premium is 33.94 /mo or $390.00 annually. Or $3900 over 10 years.

Awesome isn't it?

You have to wonder when they set up code names for things..


https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=yellowhammer

Top definition
Yellowhammer
It's a reference to inbred people from Wilmington, IL.

Wilmington became famous for being a stop on U.S. Route 66, which followed the route of modern-day Illinois Route 53. A notable attraction for travelers along this route is the hammers or yellow hammers that live in brodies woods they once worked on the railroad using yellow hammers and set up residency in Wilmington. They bred within the family and became mutant from insest.
Watch out for those yellowhammers when in Wilmington!

They survived months of German carpet bombing, among other things. But can they survive the slightly more expensive Toblerone, post-Brexit?

Oh, well, I don't think that he has ever made any good prediction. For example: In January 2018, he told CNBC, "Value of all crypto-coins continue to increase this year", when Ethereum was actually above $1000 and CRipple was above a couple of bucks.

That face of Arthur is slowly starting to look... innocent to me.



So cute!

Well just barely, but 1 we were totally fucked up by the war 2 we are made of less stern stuff now. There might be cancer deaths, or riot deaths, but then they have those everywhere, unlike having funnel-web spiders up the wazoo.
