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.
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?
