  1. I'll watch it but I have 5 mins now and then have to leave. It is 30 mins long. There are lots of uses for blockchain and there are also lots of blockchain based cryptocurrencies. What is it about Bitcoin that gives it an edge long term other than the head start it has in building an ecosystem and pile of bitcoin owners?
  2. So then tell me. Other than the fact that blockchain is a technology used to create a cryptocurrency named "Bitcoin" and can easily be used to create other cryptocurrencies (and already is).
  3. No time for that right now. What's the point?
  4. Russia tv making some waves about "crossing a red line" if Ukraine uses the new systems sent by the US.
  5. Block chain technology is super valuable and is here to stay. Bitcoin is a brand and currently in pole position. We've seen some others in that type of position before in other verticals/technologies who have failed spectacularly. It is going to be an interesting and bumpy ride just like it has been for about 10 years already. Betting on the Bitcoin brand alone is very risky of course. What is the progress on their key attempts at creating barriers, e.g. patents, etc?
  6. Well certainly there needs to be some sort of timeline included. Saying "by 2600" isn't going to be very valuable. Would you be inclined to say "within 15 years" or something along those lines?
  7. So if we go back to 2017 what was your prediction as to where the value would be 5 years later?
  8. Sure but 20 years of tech is a long time as well. A LOT can happen between now and 2050.
  9. The inflation was coming Ukraine or no Ukraine. However, I'm pretty sure Ukraine drives it up faster and higher and that it will take longer to get out of it.
  10. I'm curious what your reason is for voting "no" to universal background checks. Can you explain?
  11. When are you going to finish things up in NC and finally neutralize New Zuker? We need to send you packing to another mission bud.
  12. Going to have to get used to paying, I'm paying $8.60 a gallon right now

  14. This is always such a tough topic and we almost always only really get into it right after a tragedy. There really isn't any simple solution and it most certainly isn't only about gun control. Having said that, there also isn't any reason not to work to put some additional control in place and I believe that can be done without wiping out the 2nd. Starting with a universal background check and adding in some form of licensing requirement. Slightly off topic, but we just had a mother and 5yr old daughter killed in our neighborhood yesterday. It is a quiet neighborhood of single family homes and nothing of this magnitude ever happens. The normal issues are related to 14yr old boys causing a bit of mischief or a house party by some 17yr old whose parents have gone out of town. The indications are it was the man in the household in some sort of domestic thingy. He used a knife. All the gun control in the world won't stop the violence BUT (a big but) it will most definitely help and mostly in situations that are within a household in addition to the lone crazy kid type of thing. Had the guy in Texas gone in with a machete/axe/sword he would still have killed a number of kids and teachers but it wouldn't have been as many. Perhaps he simply wouldn't have felt as powerful and emboldened with just a sword and wouldn't have carried thru on his plans. One thing is for sure and that is that this type of issue has absolutely nothing to do with race. Gun violence is readily present in the US all over the place and simply doesn't discriminate. White supremacist types gun down POC like in Buffalo, yes. On the hand, the volume of gun violence in inner cities and within the brown community is huge. When it comes to gun violence we aren't interested in only one or the other, i.e. not just domestic terrorism and not just inner city issues. Or at least we shouldn't be...
  15. Yep, it is his entire modus operandi. Keep piling on more and more sheet constantly and if anything continues to get attention and if he is in any sort of trouble then just raise the stakes. We saw that from day 1 and it never ever stopped.

  17. Tell you what, you can have the little land corridor down to Crimea and including Donbass for now. We'll take Finland and Sweden. We will then take back Donbass and Crimea when we see fit. In the meantime, bow down and lick our perfumed Western balls you sorry piece of lowlife sheet.

  19. Kind of doesn’t matter though. Whatever the supreme creator or energy or order, the reference to it means the same. They are inherent rights.
  20. Obviously there is no simple solution to this stuff. If there was a smart logical way to limit access to guns then I'd be for that but of course it would have to be a reasonable solution that maintained the 2nd but with a sound level of limitation, e.g. a license or whatever. That would only be one small part of the equation. The bigger ticket is tied up with the health of society.
