I pay for all my drugs and hookers with FRNs.

Wal-mart isn't going to accept bitcoin, period, until after a monetary revolution. It doesn't matter if the top ten google hits are "Good Christian Soldiers Doing God's Work Need Your Bitcoins" or "CL Hooker accepts Bitcoin." or "Evil Agorist Tax Dodgers Use Bitcoin." Wal-mart doesn't accept Paypal AFAIK.

It's akin to saying that Hollywood studios aren't going to produce DVDs or Blue-Rays becase the porn industry adopted and pushed them first. (Along with everything else) It's absurd, and far from the point. Porn sites accept Paypal too, you know, along with every other shady enterprise.

I guess this is the hardcore agorist in me. I honestly don't care if Wal-mart accepts bitcoin or not, and I do not believe that it should be a major focus of bitcoin at large. When the time comes, Wal-mart will have no choice.

My .00002 BTC.

I don't think porn sites do accept paypal.  Not because they don't want to, but because paypal has been known to freeze and seize their accounts.  Paypal sees themselves as a moral arbeiter and won't allow the purchase of tobacco or alcohol with paypal.  I am pretty sure they also don't allow porn.

Or otherwise legal firearms.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

Not porn sites directly, but other indirect methods of obtaining porn can be paid for through paypal - and they're all owned by the same people. =)

That's a very interesting entrepreneurial idea!  It could even be as simple as one of those scratch-off lottery cards, revealing a code to type into a website form!
Similar to like a phone card for those pre-paid phones. You get a card for $15, $25, etc. amounts. Wal-mart *activates* the card by swiping it like a credit card, then those jumbled random numbers on the back are active to transfer X amount of BitCoins to whichever address you specify.

This allows you to buy the cards with cash (no credit/debit trail), but the only issue is really, how many BitCoins do I get for $1.00 for example? That's where the tricky part lies, I'm going to have to poll as many market sites as (they) will allow me to (talking with others about it) to get the conversion rate. So while it's possible that if you buy a $10 card and redeem it that day for more bitcoins than you would have got the day before, the key will be to make sure people understand that when they buy it. So they can buy it has sort of a investment or spending currency if they like.

It's certainly going to be easier to sell them that way to the giants like Wal-mart than to convince them to take BitCoins as payment. As time goes on though and things expand, who knows what the future may hold.

Like buying stock options basically.

Bitcoin must pass the "significant non-infringing uses" test in courts, both of law and public opinion.
