I have to admit I have never used aftershave in my life. Other than the smell I don't see the point. What am I missing?
The tightening of the pores. A most manly sensation.

If you can't bring yourself to say "no", then maybe you just don't have sexual agency and so shouldn't be going on dates.
YES! It's to the point that women shouldn't be allowed to socialize with members of the opposite sex without a chaperone.

Re: Private Money!

Perhaps. Perhaps you were obliquely saying how easy it is to spend cash fast. But the variously worded claim that one wouldn't know how to spend some large sum of money, never mind how quickly, has always struck me as facially absurd or else the confession of a pitiful imagination. Whether that was...

Re: Mattingly, I thought I told you to trim those sideburns!

I pulled out my Norelco the other day, and it was not as good as a Mach III. Had to pull out the Old Spice (just the after-shave, which is probably a bottle I bought before they even started trying to be the New Axe) because my neck was burning. Maybe the blades are dull. How long has it bee settin...

Re: Private Money!

If I want to spend a billion dollars cash, the biggest difficulty is finding enough things that I want to buy. I wouldn't have that much trouble spending a billion dollars. Real estate, art, a jet or two, etc. Okay, so I might have buyer's remorse over upward of a third of my purchases, but when yo...

Re: Private Money!

The deal is that cash movement and asset transfers require clearinghouse and or settlement, so in theory those exchanges are not as liquid as they appear to be. There’s a lot of infrastructure built up to make those liquidity constraints irrelevant to most consumers most of the time. It’s what over...

My intuition is that the tension between the low number of transactions for goods executed in bitcoins vs the valuation of bitcoin will resolve by way of decreased valuation not increased transactions. But that’s just intuition. The valuation of BTC is looking very bubbly. OTOH there's been a serie...
