I've learnt that even if you start a brand new Facebook account, from the ads on the right hand side of my new account, I see that they know I graduated in 1978 and even suggest my sister as a friend as well as an uncle I haven't spoken to in a couple decades. Somebody tell me how the hell is that even possible.

I'm depressed! Can I sue them for braking some kind of privacy clause?

You probably agreed to it somewhere in a long page of legalese.

I've learnt that lower budget filmmakers are now moving to DSLRs because they shoot high qualty (FUllHD) footage just as well as a professional camcorder and for much less than 1/2 the price.This also seems to be a trend.

If you are in between (not big-budget, but have more to spend than low budget), you should look at the Red One. I hear it is a commonly used tool of the medium budget filmmaker.

It's all good to kno.I've known about the RED ONE camcorders for sometime.I originally was reffering to the micro-budget filmmaker (smallest budgets imaginable on earth).I wish I had the chance to play with a RED ONE camcorder.

Now that is depressing. After all we've done here to bring awareness to their movement, they reject Bitcoin. At least we still have a shot at the My Little Ponies. Perhaps if Pinkie Pie wrote a letter...

She still does more laps than any dancer I've known.

I've learnt about a racing sport that may be a perfect fit for Bitcoiners to bet on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJSX0dSxw5s

I'm sure not many of you have even seen this, let alone heard or read about it.

I've learnt that this woman is upset with seeing those ugly boxes from her front porch. Why couldn't they just leave that beautiful telephone pole alone.


Gretchen Barnard stands on her porch and looks at a Bitcoin mining rig disguised as a cellphone antenna placed just feet from her Hinsdale home.

Gretchen Barnard stands on her porch and looks at a Bitcoin mining rig disguised as a cellphone antenna placed just feet from her Hinsdale home, satisfied that her husband finally moved it outside the house. He'll be allowed back in the matrimonial bed now.

As for Stanley? Well, he'll still be able to visit when Mr. Barnard is away.
