Except most commodities have a use. If bitcoin isn't a currency it's just a digital distributed ledger, which has no value.

Re: Observations of the Random sort

I learned all I needed to know in the first episode, which is about how blond guys fall for blonde chicks and not their brown-haired girl-next-door long-term quasi-love interests. Even though BHGNDLTQLIs will do freaky shit you can't even imagine. And blonde chicks won't even consider until college...

Re: What are you reading?

Depends on whether what you listen to is worth more than the monthly fee. As I recall, a lot is.

You can also get an audio edition of the New York Times and maybe the WSJ or at least you could.

Re: Private Money!

Actually, there's now a real time payments network in the US today. It launched in November last year. Granted, as of today, there are only a couple banks connected. By end of 2018, all the big banks will be connected and by 2019, pretty much all the banks that matter will be connected. Yeah, corre...

It'll also be funny if all the crypto currency fortunes are destroyed due to a carbon tax.

Re: Private Money!

Not if you're bourgie (and as long as the check is merely in the hundreds of dollars) That's another good point. Say you want to transfer $100M to you family in Botswana. How liquid are your USD now? If you have $100M, you can probably get it done almost immediately, any time, day or night.

Atomic Blonde is a bunch of good action scenes wrapped in a nonsensical spy plot with an anachronistic but good 80s soundtrack.

Not for nothing, but that article sounds to me like, "of course a Paladin can harm undead with his Lay on Hands ability. Gary Gygax said so."

On the one I hand, I enjoy how fucking bonkers serious Catholics are, on the other hand, I fear a dystopian quasi-fascist Catholic theocracy, which would probably become regular fascist.

Well, if it's protected, he can. He can accidentally blow it, but nobody can force him to give up secrets that are protected by attorney-client privilege. That privilege is limited to communication with Trump. There is also the work-product doctrine, which protects info and work created with a legit...

So I wonder if Bannon will disappear or if he'll find some other platform. Hopefully disappear, otherwise Trumpism is more likely to survive Trump.
