Something really strange happened today. I came home from work, hit the treadmill, then collapsed on the couch, exhausted and dizzy. I fell into a strange trancelike state. Suddenly, the sunlight coming in my windows turned bright red, and I heard a booming, almost deafening voice:

BEHOLD! I AM KARHU!

Me: WTF is going on...

SILENCE! YOU WILL LISTEN AND OBEY.

Me: Okay...

THE BLOOD OF THE BULLS HAS SATIATED MY HUNGER. I HAVE RETURNED, AND WITH MORE POWER THAN EVER BEFORE!

AFTER YEARS OF PAIN AND DARKNESS, I WILL NOW REWARD MY FOLLOWERS WITH ALL MY GLORY AND WONDER!

BUT FIRST, YOU SHALL BEAR WITNESS TO THE THREE SIGNS:

1. AFTER HIS LONG REIGN IN THIS WORLD, THE FEROCIOUS BEAR SPIRIT SHALL SHOW HIMSELF TO YOU IN HIS LLAMA FORM ONCE AGAIN. THIS IS THE OMEN OF HIS PASSING.

Me: A bear llama?

2. A GREAT MAYOR SHALL RETURN TO HIS PEOPLE. ONLY THEN WILL YOU BE PREPARED FOR WHAT'S TO COME.

3. WHEN THE VALUE OF THE MOONCOIN REACHES TEN THOUSAND SCORE, YOU WILL MAKE A FINAL SACRIFICE TO ME.

Me: You want us to sell our bitcoin at $100,000?

NO! I NOW DEMAND BEAR BLOOD.

Me: So you want us to buy more bitcoin at $100,000? That's crazy!

YOU MUST PROVE YOUR FAITH TO KARHU. ONLY THE MOST FAITHFUL AND RIGHTEOUS COINERS WILL BE REWARDED.

DO AS I COMMAND, AND I WILL BRING MY GLORIOUS BITCOIN KINGDOM UNTO YOU! EVERY FAITHFUL COINER SHALL RECEIVE 7 NASTY, FILTHY SLUTS. FOR EVERY RIGHTEOUS COINER, THE LAMBOS AND BLOW WILL FLOW LIKE WATER.

Me: That doesn't even make any sense.

SILENCE! NOW GO FORTH, AND DELIVER MY MESSAGE TO YOUR FELLOW WALL OBSERVERS!

At that point, I must've passed out. My wife found me asleep on the couch. I'm still trying to make sense of all this...

That's fucking crazy.

I especially don't like the 7 filthy slut limit.

I would rather have a limit on Lambos and blow, and let the filthy sluts flow.... so I am a bit disappointed with these skimpy quotas of riches.

Fuck, I just realized it was supposed to be 72 sluts.

You are a sloppy proof reader.    Angry Angry Angry

Likely too much ayahuasca.   Tongue

Hey Jimbo

how about a Blue Jays halfway report?

The Jays are doing about as well as expected in a rebuilding year with a team consisting mostly of rookies. 2 of the 3 highly-touted  sons-of-superstars prospects have already been brought up (Guerrero and Biggio) and are already excelling. The 3rd, Bo Bichette is waiting in the wings.

Last night Guerrero showed the rest of the world why we consider him the cornerstone on which we'll build our next championship team. His performance in the home run derby was historic, setting all-time records for the most home runs in the opening round, the semifinal round and overall. He may have lost the final round but he still stole the show.

Without making excuses for him, it should be noted that he was exhausted after doing a full extra round and 2 additional swing-offs in the semifinals, while the eventual winner got to rest up by facing weaker opponents in the first 2 rounds and quitting early due to batting second.
The night truly belonged to Vladi.

In the real world of the AL, Guerrero is still making adjustments. After an initial splash that saw him being named player of the week a couple of weeks in, opponents have stopped throwing fastballs to him. Once he masters hitting big-league breaking balls, watch out. The guy can flat-out hit. He has always hit for a high average and has incredible innate power and an amazing eye. He should be a consistent 4-digit OPS guy and a perennial MVP candidate.

The rest of the Jays' young core are progressing nicely as well. After a slow start and a trip to the minors, Lourdes Gurriel Jr has been among the league's offensive leaders and his move to left field has yielded immediate dividends. After a series of outfield assists, other teams are learning not to run on him. Rookie catcher Danny Jansen has been consistently solid behind the plate and has recently started hitting more consistently. Rowdy Tellez, Randall Grichuk and Teoscar Hernandez have also shown better-than-average defense and power at the plate but the latter is still striking out too much.

The reason for the Jays' dismal record is their pitching. The only reliable starter has been Marcus Stroman (with almost no run support) while Giles, Hudson and Biagini have been solid in the bullpen. Everyone else has pretty much sucked.

Pitching is what wins ballgames and the Jays don't have it yet. Hopefully by the time the young core gels and a few young pitching prospects develop, the team will add some solid veteran starters and bullpen arms to make a run for it. Until then they seem content to save money by throwing out other teams' washed-up scrubs and rejects.

As I said, it's a rebuilding year and as such, it can be painful to watch at times.

I am pretty sure shitton of people will be unloading their stashes like there is no tomorrow when btc starts to go above $50k. Not many will be left to hodl a full piece when it hits $100k.

When BTC goes above $100k and hits $1m, those who sold from $50k will be very sorry unless they owned and dumped at least 20 btc.

Yes, people tend to sell as if there is no tomorrow. We saw that when we reached the modest price 13800. People started selling so heavily that the profit turned into a loss for many. Only a day after the 13800, they kept selling down to 9700! We've seen many such crashes in 2017 and they all ended with 25%+ recovery. The next day it happened! We were back above 11K. I can only imagine how stupid those weak hands felt!

In the same way, we may have such crashes at any price level if the increase is too steep for a short time. We may fall from 50K to 30K for a day, and on the next day to be at 40K, and in 2 weeks above 50K. It could take longer, of course. It could take even a year, like in 2018. This won't be pleasant at all, of course. But if that is the price for becoming a millionaire, so be it!

I still remember 10 years ago, when I went into the bank and made a 5 year deposit with 4.5% year interest. I lived happily through those 5 years taking my profit. Until I heard of Bitcoin. What will be the interest of my Bitcoin deposit in 5 years? Incredibly high, for sure. Therefore, the price of suffering one more  bear year is insignificant compared to the prize after that.

And finally, if someone truly loves Bitcoin, he won't be happy to sell all of them and to stop watching the price. It just doesn't work. He will learn one way or another. After 5 years, when he spent  all of his fiat money, and hears on the news that Bitcoin reached a record heights 10x, 100x or more than the exit price, that feeling will kill all the joy he had when he sold them. Especially, if he has kids, who now have no money for a college or a medical treatment. My point is that we have to think in perspective - not for the next day, month, or year, but for a generation ahead. We have to be very careful what we sell and what we leave for the years to come. I've been thinking about it for 2 years and still don't have a clear and sound plan. I have to wait at least a year and see what will be the price after the next halving. Then I can make a better plan. And hopefully, my emotions won't interfere to sell most of it way too early! The other hard thing is to live with a profit that changes both ways by tens (hundreds, etc.) of thousands each day. That is no easy too! But this is our occupational hazard!

No, we don't "all know" what will happen.

If history is any guide, the bubble top will be a year or so after the halving and BTC winter will be a year or 2 after that.

But then i see the usd total value, and i smile again..

I kept a bit more than 4% alts, since I managed (way back) to trade the majority of them into profit, meaning the ones I've kept are at zero cost. 

Last bull run, I didn't sell my BTC, I sold alts for BTC and cashed out some $ that way.  So, it didn't particularly worry me to keep them and wait for the next 'alt season' this time around.

Yes, they have increased in $ terms, but I still feel I lost out by not flipping 'em over to BTC when I should have, of course. 

Rationally, they have still made more money than I could have made on anything else outside of crypto. So I know I really cannot complain.  But irrationally - knowing how much more it 'could have been' makes it a strangely annoying place to be in.

I guess it's proof of loss aversion theory; we all fear losing money more than we enjoy making it.

It's possible, also, yet maybe not in your speculation scenario, that we are in a correction period in 2022 and/or 2023 in preparation for the 2024 halvening. 

You consider  a possible upcoming correction cycle within your knowing more than everyone else scenario?

The other hard thing is to live with a profit that changes both ways by tens (hundreds, etc.) of thousands each day. That is no easy too! But this is our occupational hazard!

I believe that when I got into bitcoin in late 2013, my plan was to attempt to stay in for at least 1 year, even though i felt that I did not know much about bitcoin, except to attempt to treat it like a long term capital gains tax, which is at least 1 year of holding.  If someone can come in and attempt to establish a 5 year plan, then that would likely be more healthy, and at some point within my first year, my mind kind of converted over to considering my bitcoin investment to be longer term, too, because I developed more confidence in its fundamentals with the passage of time  - which was maybe a kind of Lindy effect within me? 

There should have been a lot of folks who saw late 2017, and the resolutions that were reached in August and November 2017 with a kind of bitcoin dominance over forkening attempts and bitcoin's unwillingness to change during that period or to succumb to baloney attacks, should have allowed for a lot more conviction for the HODLers, and surely BTC's price performance could have contributed to such confidence, even while the following year might have caused some folks who were less convicted into BTC regarding the solidness of BTC's going forward vision and the foundation built around bitcoin's difficulties to change.

Since bitcoin is now more than 10 years old, as compared to its only 5 year old status when I got in, newbies today, providing that they have enough youth, could still come into bitcoin with a kind of 5 year plus plan... the plan could include dollar cost averaging or even a bit of frontloading dollar cost averaging combination that should be able to have decent chances of profitability in the longer term of 5 years or more.
