He tried to kill himself about 3 miles away from me. Kind of a weird story to have happen around here  Undecided

At least 4 people I know are out of work because of this.

Death by Bitcoinica Chocolate.

I don't see how he could have been arrested, let alone a police report filed.

Got a fresh cup of coffee and headin' back to that other thread.

Quote from: Yahoo Article
Wasendorf had been hospitalized at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics after attempting suicide outside the company's headquarters in Cedar Falls on Monday by hooking up a tube to his car's tailpipe.

He's a pansy.

Good to know there are other Bitcoiners from Iowa. Were not always the quickest to jump on new technologies, but it looks like you've been around for a while.

This is actually a huge story in the region, and likely will be for some time. People can be pretty unforgiving here, trust is a commodity.
