It's a way for governments to collect a sin tax on ethanol for consumption without raising the price of ethanol for other uses. In other words, bullshit.

Yes, I (and everyone in my country) know what Denatured Alcohol is Wink. Actually, i have a bottle at my house right now - I use it to start fire in the stove.

So you mean the excise tax - taxing the use of drugs... I was wondering what was that about.

Well, the point is that denatured alcohol would not exist if it were not for the desire to tax alcohol consumption. For every other use, plain ethanol is preferable. It's only when you want to create two classes of ethanol "for consumption", "not for consumption", as a way to limit consumption without affecting the non consumptive uses, that denatured alcohol is useful.

Kind of like how the government puts dye in diesel for home use but not for vehicles. Pretty grimy.

Scratch lotto is  the obvious choice if you want to mail tickets around.  Then youre limited  to the same state you bought them in as you usually cant claim them out of state. Maybe a lotto syndicate would be better where many people share the purchase of tickets and any prizes get shared between the members. 

Scratch lotto can be claimed out of state... at least in my experience.

I live in Utah (no scratch lotto), last time I drove through Montana I picked up a string of scratch lotto tickets just to keep us occupied on the road...had about four winners... mailed them to the Montana lottery board and they sent my check to Utah, where all forms of gambling are totally forbidden by law.

Of course, this could vary by state - but I would guess that it's the purchase of scratch lotto that's illegal, not the redemption of ones legally purchased.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

The site seems to be down for me, when I am trying to reach it via Tor.

I can get on core.onion and the hidden-wiki, but when I am trying the URL of your hidden-service I am always getting a timeout.

Last time I tried http://tor2web.org/ it worked, now even this doesn't work.

Sometimes it seems to be available via tor2web, but using "tor-browser_en-US" from torprojekt.org I still get a timeout. Yesterday a friend of mine, living in a different state of Germany using the same package (only 4 windows, instead of linux)got on the site.

Is that a tor-related problem?

Unconfirmed.

I tried 4 times on different weekdays, and it always works for me.
Stop using tor2web, install a proper tor like everyone else.

He said it works via tor2web, and not via the browser bundle... but thanks for giving advice without carefully reading the situation.

I saw this and it bothered me. I found I had the same problem, perplexing. Now I have a solution. Check your logs (see vidalia "advanced" tab). Look for time errors. Looks like tor doesn't handle DST changes well.

I restarted tor, and now I can connect to this, and some other sites that I was having issues with. Oh, before you restart, check your system time!

I plan to make a purchase here.

What is the average delivery time?

That depends on who you buy from, where they are located, and where you are located.  Vendors are required to ship within 72 hours and many will ship the same or next day.  If you live in the same country as the seller, turnaround can be as short as a 3-4 days.

Is anyone still having connection issues?  Traffic to the site died off by about 30% a couple of days ago, couldn't figure out why.  Did daylight savings time mess up tor?

I am, actually. It's worked fine for me up until now, but I've not been able to connect all night. I either get a TTL expired error or a blank page in firefox, and my tor log is full of "[notice] Tried for 120 seconds to get a connection to [scrubbed]:80. Giving up. (waiting for circuit)"

I just tried successfully to connect to some other tor hidden sites like the hidden wiki. Hopefully it's just a temporary problem.

It's also not working for me. Probably just temporary Tor problems.

Thanks for this awesome idea, silkroad.  I am so impressed, I promoted it on my national radio program tonight.  Hope you don't mind the publicity.

I was able to access the site last night, but now am getting: 504 Connect to ianxz6zefk72ulzz.onion:80 failed: SOCKS error: host unreachable

I am using the Tor Browser as your site suggests.

Looking forward to hearing more positive experiences from users.

My TOR node usually needs about 5-10 minutes to properly "heat up" and get connected to other nodes and it that time no page works for me.
After that, it runs normally.

Maybe you all should start the note and let it work for some time, and try it later.

I get that sometimes but I usually just refresh and it's okay. Of course, I only visit out of curiosity and ever buy anything, okay, DEA?

I run mine 24/7. It's a bridge node.
