Likely true. But this is probably racially motivated. If so, it's not far different from yelling racial slurs.

Re: Private Money!

Friendster or GTFO. Was that the one that got taken over by Brazilians, or was it the Google one named after the guy who first developed it, whose name I can't remember? People who start online communities and name them after themselves are total weirdos. I take it you'd rather not be invited to jo...

And now a leak in the ceiling and my kitchen faucet is toast.
Kitchen faucet is DIY. Leaky ceiling is Oh Fuck. You absolutely need to find where the leak is coming from (which may prove difficult) and get it fixed (which may prove expensive).

Re: I just don't get it

I think it's probably incorrect to think that they're using leaded crystal for those chandeliers, especially ones in chinese buffets. Isn't it far more likely that it's acrylic? And LED is just too efficient to pass up. I was seeing articles 2 years ago that switching to LED lighting at the time wa...

Re: Twitter!

Dammit, now I really want a Moon Pie or twelve. I made Moon Pies from scratch once. It was an...'inefficient' effort. It took longer to bake them than they lasted. And cleanup was no small chore either. However the quality of home made Moon Pies was such that they utterly ruined the vending machine...

LEDs have pretty good spectrum coverage. Here's a comparison of a Philips incandescent vs. a Philips A19 LED. http://www.soundandvisionmag.com/files/imagecache/gallery_image_620/_images/201305/incandescent_-_2488k.jpg http://www.soundandvisionmag.com/files/imagecache/gallery_image_620/_images/20130...

Re: Private Money!

Unlike traditional currencies, the switching costs of the reserve cryptocurrency of choice is pretty low. Much cheaper than switching it in the physical world. Irrelevant. No matter the cost, there is disincentive to switch because BTC is already accepted everywhere. And Myspace was the social medi...

Re: Private Money!

I suspect if there's a government-approved cryptocurrency that lacks some of the advantages of the current market for BtC, that will become the "safe" reserve currency that others are valued in, because its value is more tied to what it can be converted to. It's called Ripple and I don't want anyth...

Re: Observations of the Random sort

You don't frame a house with hardwood. You use a high quality white pine or ideally spruce. You can post-and-beam or timber frame with hardwood, although that's expensive and uncommon outside places where it's traditional. I have a thing about hardwoods, I like the way they look. I don't mind if yo...

The way the royal family treated Edward VIII is unspeakable. Then I remember that he palled around with Hitler. So fuck em all. What a pack of hyenas.

I haven't heard this argument from anyone else, so there might be something very wrong with it. But I've been mulling it over for the past week and I think it's sound. Why BitCoin has real value. So, you understand blockchain technology. You accept that it's a new thing that is going to alter the co...
