Here's my 2 cents: If Bitcoin breaks $5,280 today or tomorrow, then by April 14th we might be in the $5,400–$5,500, otherwise Bitcoin will retreat to $4,800–$4,900 range during the week.

Fucking IRS.

Got our final numbers from the accountant, and this is the first time, in a long time, that my bill way higher than Ricks, owing to setting up my early retirement fund by selling off the BTC I did during the dying gasps of the bulls being devoured by the bears in late 2017/early 2018.

Rick suggested he would contribute $x towards my obligations, in exchange for $y Bitcorns. Think I'm going to take him up on the offer to preserve part of my cash stash, and cover my Q1 estimated taxes instead with the leftover liquidity, and put the rest back into a fund, somewhere.

At least this way, Bitcorn stays in the family, and would help towards his retirement plans if we have a couple more months of green dildos.

Also, today marks two weeks of being officially dry. I'm genuinely beginning to enjoy the clarity. feelsgoodman.


- yes good, keep the Corn in the fam. and work stuff out.... perfect.

-I do cheer for you to be dry for over 2 weeks, though you should be able to manage the drinking to be occasionally, over dinner evenings or @a Bday etc just skip the 5,6,7 beers a early morning everyday and you should be fine. Just don't forget to give yourself something from day to day as a reward ( like sometimes a fine wine over dinner, or a glass of bubbles to celebrate some dildo's etc)

Maybe you can have 2 or 3 seastead apart from the set of owners, just to rent.
On a platform like airbnb, it may be another form of profitable, probably always have reservations.

I just had a group come out here last week to visit the seastead. One of them wants to do exactly that.

He wants to set up a SeaBnB on a few of these and get about 10 people to go in on one to split the cost/profit. He's figuring a 65% occupancy rate over 3 years pays for itself.

The configuration would be just a bed and bathroom instead of the standard which comes with a kitchen.

We also have a big investor that wants to set up an underwater restaurant. People visiting the restaurant will want a place to stay the night. We're figuring a capacity of 40 high end customers.

Maybe I am completely wrong, but that looks like a great idea. I see way bigger target on people looking for temporary / adventure experience than people permanently living on it. And additional services/experiences like that underwater restaurant also seem like a great enhancement in that path.

There's many people in the world with pockets full of money looking for new experiences and able to pay whatever for it than those same people leaving their mansions to permanently live in a confined space in the middle of the sea. Not to mention the amount of youtubers/bloggers that could find that a great experience (for a brief period of time) to fully document on their social networks. Add to that the "pioneering" aspect of it and you have a great marketing proposal.

Since you're already active in that area, would you mind answering a few questions regarding seasteading for me? The responses can be however brief since this won't be immediately relevant for quite a number of years to me, but I'd like to sketch out some future options regardless.


Is it plausible to create a small seasteading property on which you could have some sort of outdoor space, or at least indoor garden or small park?

Small is easy. We're selling our DIY seasteads for $45k. This includes just a spar and a 7 meter wide steel plate that you can then customize as you wish.

Quote
Perhaps an inner courtyard type setup with or without a roof that may or may not be opened and closed?

When thinking of seasteading start thinking in terms of boats instead of vast lands. The more open/empty space, the more the price.

Quote
Is it possible to get a per square meter cost estimate (excluding inventory)?

Excluding everything, that barebones DIY will cost you about $108/sqft or $1169/sqm. You may consider that your "land" price. On top of that we build a fully self reliant home with solar electricity and fresh water (which brings the price up considerably).

Quote
How do you go about acquiring "sea" (land/property) for something like this? Surely you can't just set up whatever arbitrarily?

We set up whatever, arbitrarily.

As long as it's over 12nm out we can put our seasteads there. But that comes with big waves which requires engineering to keep you above the waves.

Quote
Is this possible in areas where you don't have to worry about pirates or rely on guns? (I don't have a problem with guns, but I'd prefer it being an option as opposed to a necessity if that makes sense.)
While we do not plan on building off of the coast of Somalia where there are pirates...
A pirate is defined as theft on the sea. If you're trying to find a place in the world where there are no thieves...good luck! Being a long boat ride where everyone can see you coming for miles is probably discouraging to most thieves. Also, us pulling up the ladder is likely better than a gun.

At least we're not robbed at least 30% of our salaries every paycheck living on the ocean.


Thanks a lot for the response. Suppose one was eyeing some 100sqm of space, would ~$2.5m be sufficient plus additional expenses for vanity furniture and inventory?

How hard would it be for someone to mess with you if you pull up the ladder? I had not considered that even entering could be prohibitive for someone already in your waters.

Are you running any aquaponics for veggies, herbs and fish?


I'm pretty lazy when it comes to leaving my quarters, so the general idea would be having enough "property" around to keep me entertained within my living space hence the perhaps odd questions.


Also, as many others already noted, the SeaBnB idea is fantastic, especially with the underwater restaurant. I'll certainly come visit one day.

Dry breaks for both liquor and herb are quite nice from time to time indeed. It's pretty strange how you don't even really notice how much your mental space differs until you do take a break.

That's what r0ach never understood. It is not that we are against Gold as another type of somewhat valuable asset, it is just that we consider it is still way overvalued in comparison to Bitcoin.

Maybe some day we will end up having even more gold than him just for the sake of it. Poor soul.

1BTC for 1KG bar. That's my price and my limit (max amount of gold I would hodl/bury). I think it is ok for giggles no matter what.

No way I would ever be buying more than a 1 KG bar just for "historical" reasons. Fuck that 400oz bar.

We are "only" around 10x away from that moment. I have seen Bitcoin do crazier things than that.

It seems different people have different tolerance levels to alcohol, and some do just fine to drink regularly all their life.

For me, something changed from my younger years to my older years.

When I was young, I could drink regularly and be a "happy drunk", a buzz would lift my mood and spirit. Would routinely go to "happy hour" after work with friends and colleagues. It was all in good fun.

Then something changed mid-life; a few bad things happened to me, and then I spent a year drowning my sorrows in alcohol. But I noticed that drinking actually had the opposite effect on me than it did when I was younger. It just made me feel more depressed and down. I lost motivation to do things I always loved doing, and I also started to worry about my health and developing alcoholism.

So after that really bad year, I stopped drinking cold turkey for seven months straight. My depression went away completely, mood improved, health improved, and mental clarity got much better. Lost weight. Now I only drink on the rare occasion about once a month, maybe one beer or glass of wine and I'm done with it. It's not a forced thing either, I just don't think about it that much any more.

Dry breaks for both liquor and herb are quite nice from time to time indeed.

The Herb is a gift from Jah that helps me feel more in tune with life and relaxed. It inspires me to do creative things, and being more calm, reasonable, and introspective, while enduring the human condition, on a daily basis.

Alcohol, on the other hand, just shuts me down, and destroys any ability to work at anything resembling peak-efficiency.

The Herb has been a part of my life for longer than I care to admit. I've considered donating my body to science upon my passing, as a case study for chronic herb use, but Rick has some reservations.

I would rather eliminate all other vices from my life, than part with The Herb.

The Herb is life.

EDIT: Looks like a play for $5,300 is in the making.
I've been partaking in the herb for the majority of my life, mostly daily and starting off my day with it. I take occasional breaks ranging from a few days over a few weeks all the way to 1-2 months though. The breaks on the herb bring heavy lucid dreams though and they also reignite my drive.
Whenever I get too lazy I just stop smoking for a while and go full hyperactive assburger again. Lasts well beyond the break as well, otherwise I probably wouldn't bother. The breaks also amplify the effects once you recommence, which is quite nice.

Have you considered donating your and Rick's body to cryopreservation? If it doesn't work who cares, dead anyways. If it does, wee. The plans cost virtually nothing these days, if not right now then certainly when Bitcoin goes parabolic again (<1 BTC per person at that point).


1BTC for 1KG bar. That's my price and my limit (max amount of gold I would hodl/bury). I think it is ok for giggles no matter what.

I suppose canning one BTC for a kg of gold wouldn't hurt. Also, holy fuck platinum is cheap. I always thought it cost significantly more than gold but it's actually cheaper right now. I honestly don't see metal prices lasting much longer though. Couple of decades at best.

No interest in it at all. Don't have any faith in the science behind it.

I'm holding out for uploading my consciousness within the next 40 years - should I last that long.
That's what I'm betting on myself, as well as life extension/rejuvenation. Keeping an open mind about the freezing thing though, but still got a long ass time before I need to worry about it for real. Given the low cost the option at least seems interesting though, even if it's a dud. Dead me won't care either way.
