Overheard in the Situation Room:
President Obama: How are we goin' to pay for this war we need
in Iran, Generals?
General 1: With Bitcoin.
General 2: But you can't go on TV and walk down the aisle that has the red carpet and two gold chairs and tell the American people anything about Bitcoin.
President Obama: What are Bitcoins?
General 3: Just like that! Pretend you don't know anything about it. And it's Bitcoin, not Bitcoins, but it can be bitcoins.
President Obama: Whatever. At least I can repay my dept to Caterpillar with all that mining equipment they get to build, not to mention helping the economy with all those rehires.
General 1: Maybe we should start at the beginning.
President Obama: Make it quick. I have a lunch date with this guy named Atlas who has this business plan...
General 2: First off, about this Atlas guy...
General 4, 5, 8 and 11: Bitcoin: The Next Big Thing
Rofls all around.
In his defense, I am working with Atlas now to make his business plan into a reality. In hearing his ideas initially, it not only made perfect sense, I had already been working on something laterally similar here in Korea. What he was lacking was a little bit of experience in how to solve one of the major problems of the idea-- risk. That has been all but eliminated now through one of my ideas, so you can expect to see Atlas bragging about his successful idea here soon.
I'm glad you enjoy, and get, the humor. Please understand that I have nothing personal, or otherwise, against Atlas. You're aware that most every other forum have their own antagonist(s). I fully understand that some individuals may not be able to articulate their ideas in such a fashion to get their passion(s) or goal(s) across. Lucky for him, he now has an individual like yourself to further develop and manifest his project(s).
Quick story: I have a friend who, when we're at the restaurant together, the other regulars have fun at our expense. Afterwards, my friends cries because the other guys are picking on him (he's 59), whereas I play along and enjoy the banter even to the point of adding to the conversation in such a way so that they can rib me some more (I'm 51). With that said, I want to state here that I like your personality.Bitcoin: Pass It On!
