rageredsonic:

Your parents are probably right.  If you only have $10 per week to spend, there are probably better things you can spend it on.  You should understand that BitCoins are high risk, and I would not recommend that you buy them unless there's something you plan to buy with your BitCoins.

So, that said, if you still think you want them, here's what you need to tell them:

The point of an allowance is for you to learn how to manage money.  That doesn't mean spending it on things that your parents think you should.  It means giving it to you, and you learning to deal with the consequences of the choices you make.  If you lose a few weeks of allowance but you learn an important lesson about markets and economics, it'll be probably the best $50 you'll ever spend in your life.

Best $50?

I beg to differ.  Don't listen to this guy, kid.  You can still get a pretty fat sack for $50.

im trying to make money off bitcoins bcuz my parents only give me $10/wk.  wtf does it matter2u?

Because that's the reason why you are using bitcoins. I could tell you that bitcoins are great for international money transfers or that it is a technological/social project with many interesting cryptography concepts, but why would you or your parents care?
You do not need to make international transfers, you certainly are not studying any of the underlying technology and you should not be making high risk investments if you are young and you do not have your own money. That's why your parents cut your allowance and they did great.

You should only be spending money you don't need with bitcoins. Money you don't need is something that you don't have, because you do not work to earn it.


You listen to me, kid.

Get your allowance back, beg if you have to.

Then you take that $10 a week and you save it.

And you save it and save it and save it.

Get yourself a nice wad of cash going, you need to be responsible with this money, because you have a goal.

Keep saving that fucking money like you're a pro, don't get weak.

Save up until you've got $100-150, get it in $5 so it feels nice and fat in your pocket.  Feel that wad of cash?  That's success.

Now you take that fat wad of cash to school or the park or wherever teens hang out. Say you're looking for some nug/bud/weed/pot.

Now, don't be stupid, have some friends with you, you're not going to lose this shit now, you've earned it.

Now you ask around until you've got the hook up, and drop all $150 on a fat sack of the greenest stinkiest shit you've ever imagined.

Smoke it. Smoke that shit. Smoke as much as you can, go wild. Hell, invite some underage chicks over, get them stoned too, they'll get REAL excited.

And once you're fucking blazing up with some hot chicks or at least a nice full bottle of lube, and you're just going at that shit, you ask yourself:

Is this worse than Bitcoin?

One word: Satori.

Haha. This guy has the right idea!

They will understand bitcoin only when it will be too late. Suchs is how these things work. Maybe when everyone will use bitcoin they will understand. Then you will have them, they not.

But, forget to make them "understand" now, it's impossible

This thread is hilarious! Grin  How can I find more threads like this instead of the worthless bickering that happens in most trolling threads?  There needs to be some sort of thread ranking system, this would get my vote!

I stand corrected.  Synaptic has the right idea.  Lord knows I got my $50 worth.

How does a KID with an ALLOWANCE even get his cash into bitcoins!? lol

Hell, I got a CC, verified PayPal, personal and business checkings account and for the love of god CANNOT GET ANY BITCOINS.

I need 4. Hell, I'll buy 4 for $30 RIGHT THIS SECOND if someone were to PM me.

Also, a side note, Bitcoins fluctuate in value very quick. Waste of money? No. Almost as dangerous as a HYIP? Yes.
