I remember people like Cypherdoc oozing out during the dot com crash of 2000 - the totally oddball, irrational types that start acting like Obi Wan Kenobi right before being struck down by Darth Vader, as if there's something we're missing by not going long during the early stages of a massive bubble collapse.

Reminds me of maggots oozing out of meat when the frying pan heats up.  We're 30 seconds into the cooking process - 14 more minutes to go.  Burn, baby, burn Smiley

lol, cooking maggoty meat for 15 minutes, will add to my recipe book.

Some groundbreaking science going on somewhere. Frying meat that is, hmm, shall we say "well beyond expiry date" to explore the behavioral patterns of maggots in the face of a burning death. Heating up the water for a frog to find out it won't jump out until it dies (some posts back). I am wondering where on the planet such experiment are thought out.
I once put a frog into a pot of cold water.  It hopped out.  I tried again, it jumped out again.  It's a really stupid urban myth 'cause the frog won't stay in the pot long enough to even get it to the stove, let alone to heat up the pot.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

lololololol, we haven't hit boiling temperature yet. (What do you think is boiling temp? $0.00? Can we test this hypothesis scientifically, because I don't want my analogy to be crushed on a scientific basis.)

I present you:

The official cypherdoc water temperature formula:

t = 10+10*ln(100/price)

t... unit degrees celcius
price... unit us dollar

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

Yep. It's scientifically vacuous. While the experience of heat is relative to environmental temperatures (even for us humans) the actual pain caused by thermal damage to the frog's skin would be an objective sensation, and would be enough to cause the animal to attempt escape.

No you just did stick your nose out, same thing as @5.
