Did you find a way to buy a new Troy-Bilt log splitter with bitcoin?  Cheesy

I like how you think, but this would be nicer:



I could hash millions of board feet of lumber, up to the year 2040, with this baby.



Just a little bit longer till I reveal what this thread's been all about.

Only a few more hours remaining, then I'll let the cat out of the microwave.

Is he done yet?

I meant to do this earlier, but had real life business to tend to.

This thread was meant to create suspense leading up to this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=54386.0

Happy Satoshi Nakamoto Day!

Why the day of his last post (death)? Why not the day he launched bitcoin or day of the genesis block (birth)?

Because I've would have had to wait to long for the other dates to come around. Besides, his last post (death) works quite well since it's close to Christmas, when some Christians remember Christ's death.

I thought he was born in mid to late spring, when sheep were giving birth, too?
And anyway, this whole holiday was stolen from Yuletide and Saturnalia, which were celebrations during the year's coldest and darkest time, marked by a big "f you" to the shitty period with huge celebrations, excess, and depravity. That fits way more for Bitcoin, as something introduced during a really shitty time as a big "f you" to those causing the situation, which will hopefully, with the help of unrestricted capitalism, bring a long period of unbridled excess and depravity (beyond what we have already seen on these forums).

Yes, most scholars agree that Christ was probably born sometime in spring. My point was that nobody celebrates his death in December.

I thought that's when the Sun was resurrected? The sun stops falling on the 22nd, then 3 days later, the Sun rises again?

You're thinking of the Winter Solstice.

Winter solstice = Yuletide = Saturnalia (= Christmas). It's all the same holiday.

Which Christians? Last I checked, any Christian remembers Christ birth on Christmas, and his death on Easter. The actual date of his birth is hard to pinpoint, but the Bible clearly gives the time of year for his death, the stories put it right by the Jewish passover, in the spring.

I'm pretty sure that Phin knows about Christmas being a celebration for Christ's birth, and he probably penned that post pretending to be ignorant of that fact. I know him personally, and how he thinks, therefore pay the idiot no mind.

I think we have to drag you into the sock-puppet thread over in off-topic to discuss wether "Phineas Gage" and "Bitcoin 100" are, in fact, the same person? I have my doubts.

EDIT: Oh, wait, this is already in off-topic.

I is me! That should just about settle this issue.
