Astrohacker is very optimistic.  This thread methodically illustrates bitcoin's greatest vulnerability to an adversary with unlimited resources.  So getting to retire in Portland in one year seems kind of silly, (but I like the sound of it.)  One other problem: the entire west coast is being bathed in nuclear contamination from Fukushima.  Sorry to pee in the punch bowl.

Now I realize most of your posts are trolling, but somebody might actually take that seriously. Be careful when you make ridiculous statements like that.

1) No adversary has unlimited resources, so that's not a problem. 2) The west coast is not bathed in radiation. 3) You peed on yourself, not the punch bowl.

Which of my statements was ridiculous?

I enjoy your writing, Astrohack.  Your writing style is simple and easy to understand even when you are describing something complex.

But I think your assessment is too optimistic.  As andes carefully worked out in the 51% kryptonite thread, you seem to have very much underestimated our adversary if you think the banking Establishment will have no response to threaten the bitcoin network.  I wish it weren't so.  And that they will be overcome in one year?!  Have you taken out a loan to buy bitcoin yet?

As for the radiation threat, what has happened in Japan is terrible and it's certainly not over yet.  The news I follow is that during the initial crisis residents of Seattle were breathing ten hot particles per day.  Hot particles are microscopic specks of radiation that can lodge in your body and expose surrounding tissue to very large radiation loads.  Not talking here about overall body load here, like an x-ray.  These hot particles have been drifting on the trade winds and bathed the west coast, including Portland certainly. Not sure why you guys would ridicule me for mentioning it.  I guess this makes me a troll, right?

Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

Hey guys, if I get rich off my bitcoins, I would like to live in a bitcoin-focused community with other bitcoin visionaries. Where in the world shall we live? I'm partial to Portland, OR, which I hear Plato is partial to as well: http://therealplato.com/

Ideally this will happen in about a year from now.

Let's pretend for a moment that this is a forum for an infant company named PayPal and the time period is about a dozen years ago. Do you think it would make sense then to have a thread about all the people who will get rich via using PayPal to form a PayPal-focused community to live with other PayPal visionaries?

I can envision a scene in this new Bitcoin community: Two friends are on the patio when another neighbor stops by to chat. After a few minutes, the neighbor leaves. Once out of ear shot, one friends comments to the other, "Troll!"

Choosing to be around just bitcoiners seems odd to me.  Personally I'd rather be around people who are courageous enough to have woken up to big truths, like Kennedy and 9-11 being inside jobs, organized religions and patriotism being scams, stuff like that.  Now that would be interesting.

One of my ideal choices would be a muskie fishing community. At night, we would all set around and brag about the small ones that got away.

Bitcoin: For all Your Fishing Needs (maybe I shouldn't of stated this slogan, for upon further thinking it would make a fine Bitcoin commerce site)
