There is more to Bitcoin than bitcoins.

I encourage bitcoin users to use the Satoshi client or any other client that downloads the full blockchain so it is stored on your comptuer.  


Do you know how big ( Megabytes ) that is?

A USB passed around could help as well.


LOL.. Well.. 8gb's is the total size of my newly downloaded blockchain.. IMO that seems huge....

Are you sure you got that right? If you did, there may be fake, bloated chains out there in the wild! Cheesy

Interesting topic. Particularly the part about debts that would go up in thin air, but also the comparability (or lack thereof) of military spending in USD. I read a lot about Chinese anti-aircraft-carrier missiles a few months ago, and that all that was needed was a global guiding system for it to become precise. China is catching up fast it seems. What I find unnecessary in the discussions here is the arrogance and disrespect shown in some posts. If someone criticizes your opinion what's to gain from insulting them? You will antagonize people instead of convincing them. Even if you are right, you can hardly convince someone and insult them at the same time.

What if rarity and notme are both right?

What if the USA and China were allies in a global war?  Feeding off of each other, using their best strengths?  Could any other county hope to even stand against that?

It seems plausible, bearing in mind the USA have been handing over its manufacturing and technical knowledge to China for decades. I find it hard to believe that this would be just a free market accident. However, China and Russia seem ideologically more closely aligned with their Communist-flavoured authoritarianism.

Also, I'm extremely concerned about China stepping up its rhetoric against Japan (regarding small disputed islands or something like that). I suspect that this is an excuse to deploy strategic defenses against the US' recent moves. Japan could even be in on the act.

Well... one could argue that they will build an east/west sort of thing.  That would actually be a very useful tool for the US to use.... "you need us... look at what happens over there!"  while China is left to it's own devises and continues to be the industrial backbone of the new world.
