I found this picture of me at a vintage fair. The beard comes and goes, and I get the odd haircut. Smiley



You are a tractor? 

Holy shit!

yeah that obviously fake human shaped cutout propped up next to him threw me off too. misdirection at its finest.

i would post a pic of me but as i am a highly classified experimental attack helicopter, i am not to be seen.

Yeah right.   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Sure, "technically," you do happen to meet such a self-description, but pics of you have already leaked out a long time ago... and yeah, many of us in this forum, who have known you for a while, have been all trying to be nice to you, including not breaking your opsec or delivering hard newses to uie, so I did blur out some of your identifying parts.. just as a kind of long-time acquaintance on the interwebs courtesy. #nohomo.  You will thank me later.  Wink

How much alt coin diversification is necessary? if you are investing in Bitcoin, then perhaps 0%?

You seem to be shaving a few years off there for the gallery: That’s (seemingly) a 2016 picture...

 
Anyhow, here's a close-up, hitting the road for a ride with a couple of lads:

It could well be 2016. It was taken at a friend's vintage fair, and the last one was 3 years ago. In fact he is now a vegetable in a care home, and that is one of the reasons I don;t have the popular view of the British Health service and care homes.

The engine you posted is certainly a Marshall, but it isn't the Empress I'm afraid, and I don't recognise the guys driving it.

my dad was still building and upgrading computers into his 70's. plus still into ham radio.

he helped me build my 1st custom PC, a 386SX back in the day (he had given me his IBM AT before that.. thats a 80286 for those younger folks). we kept each other up to speed in various tech till he passed away. we were also in a quake clan together for a long while.

never stop learning.

Jet Cash, keep on doing what youre doing. youre too young to stop playing with tech. or anything else for that matter.

One of the problems that I have is in understanding modern statistical methods.. I've just looked in on the tech board, and I'm lost. I started to read the thread about Pollard's kangaroo method, and I'm struggling. I understand random walk theory and Brownian movement, but everything seems to have moved so far away from the basics - which were advanced in my school days.

Maybe we should have a pensioners' board here. Smiley

I like the traction engine pics that have been posted here.  There used to be a few in various parks around Brisbane, (Toowong, Kangaroo Point, Ithica Park etc) but they all got quietly taken away due to Occupational Health etc (that and asbestos inside their boilers rusting away).  The same fate saw a couple of Steam Locomotives removed from Ithica Park & Spring Hill as well as the B.C.C. are too afraid to have anyone climbing on such structures.  Not that anyone ever fell off of such things.

The last couple of years the RNA Ekka have had a hand-full of Traction engines under steam parked along Gregory Terrace during the Ekka, including one stripping corn from the cob, but alas, there's no Ekka this year.

I think a lot of Australian tractors and agricultural equipment has been exported to England. Australia has quite a dry atmosphere, and this helps to preserve the metal work. I know of at least two engines, and a wood burning tractor that are local to me, and came from Australia. One of the engines came in pieces, and the farmer is restoring it.  The wood gas burning tractor was really interesting, and I wish I could have spent more time talking to its owner.

Last month I has my 78th birthday, is there anyone here who is older than me. I can still remember snatches from the air raids in the second world war, and it is interesting how some things make such an impression on children's minds.

Obviously I have a lot of friends who are over sixty, and not many seem to be able to understand the concept of virtual assets, even when I cite the examples of stories, and fiat currencies.

Sir can we know your background? I mean what was your job and how did you last for 78 years and be close to the forum, bitcoin, and cryptocurrency? I was amazed with your capability being 78 and still kicking the forum with the knowledge and experiences you share. For the past years I've seen you're post were too great and helpful. And looking that you use Kali, I see you are somehow a tech savvy, either a programmer, a hacker, or simply a bitcoin enthusiast that considers first his safety.

Enough said, Belated Happy Birthday. This post maybe too late, but fun fact that you posted this thread on my birthday lol Grin

I must say it is an inspiration you are to many that come across this thread. At 78, you might have been in the virtual knowledge or have developed interest of virtual assets early in life.

I am not as old as that but this your post has inspired me to look ahead with firm vigor.

We all develop interests in abstract concepts early in life. Speed, God and death are 3 obvious examples. Whatever their religious beliefs, I doubt if there are any people  reading this forum who have not heard of some form of God. There are advantages and disadvantages in having an advanced brain that can appreciate these concepts. Some say that whether or not God exists, an appreciation of death means that we have to create a religion with a ruling deity.

This religious creation can lead to blind obedience to flawed concepts, and we have many examples of this.
- Fiat currencies
- Peace through military dominance and the suppression of nationalism
- The health benefits of wearing face masks. Smiley

The extension of understanding to appreciate virtual assets seems to escape most people, and they seem to blur the distinction between real and virtual ownership. Gold is one example. If you have a gold coin in your hand, then you own it. If you have a piece of paper that says you are entitled to a gold coin, but somebody else is keeping it for you, then you don't own it. Actually the same applies to Bitcoin - if you purchase  some Bitcoin, and it is transferred to a wallet that has your name on it, but you don't have the keys to it, then you don't own the coins. All you own is a promise that may not be honoured.

Damn dude, you're pushing 80. That's pretty incredible.

I would say the average demographic on this forum is between 20-40 years old, maybe we should have a poll so we can find out?

Glad to see the older generation taking new technology and absolutely running with it. Far too many people over 50 try to avoid technology by any means necessary. I know both my parents do, and so too do those of practically everybody I know. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin might as well be alien technology as far as they're concerned.

My advice would be to avoid all doctors and hospitals, and to work with nature to maintain your health.

Not sure about this quote though.

Most people with severe COVID19 won't fare too well without respiration (in a hospital) and one of the major reasons human lifespan's have been increasing is due to better medical technology—which you can usually only access through your primary care provider.

What is severe Covid -19. It isn't really severe in my opinion. If you have severe health problems, it's probably because you've been vaccinated, or you are messing yourself up with products and poisons from the money Pharmers.
