For the 2022 recap they add the clip (klepper klip?) where he goes to MAGA rallies post Jan 6 post Jan 6 hearings. He shows Ivanka disavowing daddykins and it was “well that’s not her that’s a good lookalike”.

You’re right. Why should we talk about the consequences of anything. We should just be blind to things. I don’t need to worry about hit by a car I can just walk right? No consequences. Exchanges are the result of low TPS, and high barriers to entry/exit. Those things are endemic to BTC (or any coin for that matter) and can not be engineered out. So, exchanges are a result of design flaws. Exchanges also have T&C that say you own nothing. But hey, you’re stuck there if you want to actually do anything. So, your original argument “why we should just look at these exchanges for where the real volume is” points out… why is there any volume on exchanges? Because BTC (and all crypto coins) are a fundamentally broken tech. Discussing how cool the volume on exchanges is reminds me of counting deck chairs in the titanic. “Hey you’re gonna die but just think how many chairs it has!!”

Trading, so it’s not a currency. It’s something to trade. Sounds like a security. The SEC should look into this High frequency trading has a very very specific definition. I think higher volume is a better term. There is no blockchain, none, that can do high frequency trading. There will never be one. The consensus among nodes all over the world enforce that.

Yes. It’s much easier to wash trade when you have your own exchange. You seem to think “hey, gotcha!!” Yet most of the volume of this “peer to peer decentralized currency” happens on centralized exchanges where you hand over your money to someone and hey look at those TandC they own your money now. This is not a theoretical - look at MyGOx and Celsius. This is a gotcha in some form that I don’t understand. Please enlighten me.

You sound like a geek. I too am one. I’ve worked for companies that have made their own dark pools. I’ve heard stories of how intense other places can get. There’s always a need for downtime. So you engineer your systems to deal with it. Redundancies. Blue green deployments. The scale of this simply isn’t as big as visa or MasterCard. I’ve never heard of planned downtime of any sort with them. Even when chips were rolled out, and chip and PIN in Europe, none of these things required a violation of .1% a year of downtime. Stuff just worked. If Brian doesn’t think this way maybe he should be removed.

I get what you’re saying but I can counter with saying “you’re saying we shouldn’t yell at the 43% free throw shooter because .400 is a hell of a batting average”. Coinbase didn’t call itself a bank with 9-3 hours. They billed themselves out as a 24/7 radical transformation of what we would think of archaic “banking”. This one event by itself takes them out of 99.9% uptime. Also, I can do credit card transactions at 12am. 24/7. My bank doesn’t have to do a transaction at 12am as long as Visa does.

This whole sitting there and just trying to calm, the first dozen or so times I did it I agree - it just makes shit worse. They call it a practice for a reason. My advice - see a psychiatrist. See if there’s a drug that will just take the edge off. Not change you deeply (I was misdiagnosed as bipolar, the drug he gave me was NOT good for me) but just take the edge off enough that you don’t have a vicious cycle.

I have no belief at all that SBF was a nice guy. He’s an asshole. The “I’ll give cash to Republicans but as dark money” will be particularly damaging for a while. If you haven’t watched the Ponzi documentary please do so. Ponzi is no Angel. His wife tried to get him out of the business for years. He knowingly committed fraud. He’s basically a guy who knowingly stole money from people so he could continue his gamble. But just in that alone - that he still believed in his scheme makes him a bit more nuanced than SBF. Or Madoff for that matter

I deeply respect investopedia. I disagree here. I think this was written well before cryptocurrencies and there wasn’t really any cuzISaidSo currencies to worry about outside of government issued ones, not ones that pretended they could run an economy. I mean A&P stamps had value but no one suggested they’d be a world currency. But fine. Let’s take that as Gospel. I would then propose a new name “CuzISaidSo” currencies. Which BTC is one. USD is one. You’d find BTCers saying “nah unhhh it’s all math it’s not a CuzISaidSo” and we’re back here anyway. I disagree it’s a distinction. And even I allow it to be, it’s a distinction without a practical difference. Do you trust the CuzISaidSo with 30 trillion USD in highly respected debt? Or do yog trust the 7tps globally and rapidly falling and now with Porn on the ledger wash traded CuzISaidSo?

Fiat basically means “because I said so”. There’s nothing government specific about it. Would you rather have money that has value because a 20 trillion USD economy, with 30 trillion USD in federal government IOUs that (until the Republicans fuck it up) are considered the safest risk free investment there is… says so? Or because a couple libertarians who didn’t know basic monetary theory said so.

There’s a good analysis in a reallllll old Planet Money podcast (one I can’t find) on why gold? They went through the entire periodic table. No gases, no liquids. Solids through reasonable temperatures. Smelt at a reasonable temperature (looking at you platinum). Not reactive. Not deadly (looking at you uranium). Kinda scarce but not so rare that you can’t base an economy on it. The thing left over - gold. You have it right - all money is a story. Gold just tells that story better than any other element accessible to ancient peoples. There was a ledger back then - but that’s centralized and really doesn’t help trade between tribes. What should we all pick? Gold it was. What it had to be. In that sense not irrational. Just, in some respects, less irrational than archaic. As if someone realllly sang the praises of horse based travel.

BTW: max 7tps That assumes a block of aboit 2000 transactions, every 10 minutes. There are times blocks don’t come. There is a gap in the spec that can make it where metadata takes up so much space that a block doesn’t have anything near 2000 transactions. It’s the *FUTURE* FUTURE Future ^future of finance!!!

As one who was in FinTech at the time and watching all this, yeah this feels about right. They wanted to punish Greece for borrowing. Oh, but what did they borrow for? German exports. Greece had much smaller borrowing costs because of the coupling with Germany. Germany also had a much weaker currency because of the coupling with other states, like Greece. When it was good - Germany gets to sell a lot more because of the Euro area perturbing markets, they were all “Awesome Dude!” Then when things went south, again partially because of the Euro area perturbation of markets, “hey we need to austerity the fuck out of you”. Then when greece said “fine y’all we’ll leave the euro area to get away from these market perturbations” the EU was all “heyyyyyy not so fast…”

Create new fiat currency: BTC is fiat. It’s not government fiat, it’s “some dude says it’s worth something” fiat. That’s better somehow, right? Print more of it: A lot of money “printing” is actually out of loans. If I put 1000 in the bank, then someone borrows 1000, it’s like there’s 2000 now. Scary?

Fair issuance - get issued to whoever was able to get cheap electricity. So, encourages corruption deals with local politicians (see: China, Texas). Saying “we fairly select from all lottery tickets” means little when your lottery ticket seller is on the take. Also the “winner take all lottery” + “lottery winner gets money to buy more lottery tickets” makes this a very very centralized game eventually. By basic principles it will become something that supposedly Los Nakamotos was against.

BTC doesn’t care. It’s not like, a person man. It’s a construct of humans. Ans only has values because some people (I think - foolish people) value it. Ordinals - this has the potential to realllly muck up the core mechanics of BTC. Each block is used to carrying around 2000 transactions. Theoretically they may carry only one. How’s the chain gonna look when it’s slowed to a crawl? How are people going to use it when it looks like it’s under attack? This, Mr Andrew should be concerned about

Name, birthdate easy to see. SSN, more restricted. Payment, restricted for a different group. History, different restrictions. Chain is “everyone sees everything”. The only Wen Lambo will be for the HIPAA lawyers.

We have tamper proof data structures outside of blockchain. git probably the one mentioned most. People kind of forget the lesson of the Byzantine Generals problem. The way BTC solves it is by wasting so much electricity that it doesn’t make sense for you to waste as much. Your motivation for wasting that much electricity is payment in fiat BTC coins.

Missing with 5 (crypto works as a currency): True settlement times with BTC are at a minimum 20 minutes (even if the block with your transaction becomes the end of the chain it can be replaced by another block - you need a block or two after you to guarantee settlement) to a few hours.

They can loan out because now they have the reserves for fractional reserve banking. You need to keep 10%. So you loaned out a million because you had 100,000 in reserve. Now you have another 100,000 in reserve, from the Fed. You can loan out more, because the extra reserve satisfies your fractional reserve requirements.

The Fed prints a very very small percentage of what’s considered Money. Most of it is electronic. The fed bumps up some number in a banks bank account and hey, there ya go. Money. “Money printer go brrrrr” isn’t a thing. That’s not all the money, a lot is “created” by banks. If I deposit 10 bucks at the bank, they can loan out, say, 8. I have my 10, there’s the 8 in the market, hey someone “printed” 8 bucks. Wait that sounds scary. It is. So _ITS WELL UNDERSTOOD AND REGULATED_. The “hey this bank making new money sounds scary, it’s much better to have zero regulations and have Mashinsky/Do Kwon/CZ/Brian/Winklevii/etc make money unregulated!!!”

People valued Tesla as a tech company first, then a car company.

Also EVERYBODY is making electric vehicles now. The Ford Lightning is actually shopping. Kia has a nice new EV. This “he’s kinda first” so gets all the rewards, yeah that’s fine.

I don’t think he’s done losing money. He’s got payments on debt to make. (Though it’s a mortgage and Twitter is on the hook not him). Either he doesn’t pay, Twitter value goes to zero. Or he does pay by selling Tesla stock, people realize (even more than currently) how big of a mistake the buy was and how he’s fucked by this albatross and Tesla stock nosedives too.

At one point there were pretty hefty fees to live money around. Wire transfer fees, and if took a while. Then, PayPal and venmo made them move (not Bitcoin) to a fairly efficient electronic transfer system called Zelle.

Aboit a decade ago I ruptured my Achilles tendon in Taiwan. ER visit, two X rays (one foot one TB screen) surgery, drugs, 2 day hospital stay, 1500USD. Poor me I had to pay completely out of pocket. Wife asked “do you think insurance will pay for it, since we’re on vacation”. My response something like “honey they’ll fly us here next time”. A friend of mine had something similar, just a few years later, in the US …. 30,000 USD. People who say “let the market decide” keep forgetting that healthcare is a market like no other. There’s no comparison shopping. “Hey honey, yeah I’ve got this accidental knife wound I’m bleeding out…. but I hear that hospital is a bit pricey let’s keep driving”. There are forces wayyyy beyond normal supply and demand here. Single payer has an economic term. Monopsony. Just like monopoly (single supplier) monopsony single payer has pricing power. It can bend the pricing curve. Make everything cheaper. The states probably will never be 1500 for ER, a surgery and hospital stay, but we can at least stop the price growth. As far as nanny state, in school I remember the pre-amble to the constitution… with something like “promote the general Welfare”…. Nanny state!! Someone should tell those founding fathers off

I never got the subdivide argument. So…. If we reintroduced half Pennies a dollar would be with more? Does having a half penny really change the fact that a candy bar is 2 bucks? Or is “oh a half penny exists let me call my candy bar a dollar now”. This is where I use, unironically, 1BTC = 1BTC. I don’t care how many Satoshis there are. Is gold infinitely valuable because I can break it down by atom? “Hey it’s an element, so each gram can be broken down into 79/(6.02*10^23) atoms, a BTC can only be broken down into 10^8 , suck it butters!!!

Long rant follows. Ignore if you wish. Or, read on…. Should we talk about Musk here. One way to gatekeep could be “can you tell the story of crypto without Musk”. Let’s have an exaggerated example. Could I tell the story about the NBA without Jordan. I mean you could, nothing is stopping you. But it would be incomplete. “Why no, I have no idea who was NBA finals MVP in the 90s… like my mind is just a blank”. Musk at one point was the public force driving BTC adoption. The very public purchase of BTC pushed up the price. It made people think this junk was real. Doge gets a pump every time he mentions it. Somewhere some clown show is driving a not phallic at all large rocket with Elon’s face on a goat, just to get him to pump their shitcoin. Musk is part of the crypto story. Yeah, you could tell the crypto story without him “Oh I like this documentary The Last Dance… it focuses on the guard… Steve Kerr… I bet he becomes a good coach someday” but it will be incomplete. In a larger sense, Musk isn’t a point singular. He’s part of a larger taxonomy. “Rich billionaire white guys that think they built the world (just kinda forget all the help they had) and who DGAF about much anyone make decisions that affect a lot of people and fuck all if anyone gets hurt”. There are too many in that number. And the fact we still worship those guys, that realllllly needs to be called out. Notes on above paragraph to cut off (at least some) well Akshully debates: Musk’s dad ran an emerald mine back in the apartheid days in South Africa. He also got government contracts when SpaceX was struggling, strategic contracts just to keep it afloat. Early EV adoption was helped a lot from government tax credits. (If anyone says this doesn’t make a diff, why was he saying not to give it to others?). He didn’t come from nowhere. And yeah, Elizabeth Holmes. Significantly, she felt she had to ape guys to get in that “rich white billionaire that people worship for…. Reasons?” club.

When they created SSN it was supposed to be for just that - social security benefits. I think they even said that “don’t use this for anything else”. That advice was not heeded.

It’s changed since. This was pre-Internet. Well, pre-Web anyway. Collecting the number of things needed for identity theft is sooooo much easier now. Back then “hey here’s a useful identifier guaranteed to be unique”. Somewhere I still have my school ID with my SSN stamped on it.

There was an old Dan Savage column where some dude got blown by a masseur. The dude was “ya know I’m 200% straight…”. Part of Dan’s response was “well that’s good because that’s 100% gay and i guess it balances out to you being 100% straight if that helps you sleep at night”. This has the “I’m 200%….” err whatever the fuck he wants to show here. And balance that out with him being in drag maybe he can sleep at night.

Long rant follows. Ignore if you wish I remember a story of “Rocky” Bleier. Football player, he went to Vietnam. Got injured. Shot. Shrapnel from a grenade. Came back from it. he went through deep rehab. A lot of pain. A lot of effort. He recovered. Enough to be part of 4 Super Bowl teams. A legendary steeler. His story is considered an inspiration to many. I think there was a movie made of it. When asked how does he feel being an inspiration, he said he actually kind of felt like a fraud. See, the physical stuff he knew. He had done that. He had already sacrificed his body been through the pain. Yeah his rehab he cranked it up a couple notches but still it was something he knew. Not having football, having to do something that wasn’t physical…. THAT was scary. The void was scarier. So, you have a guy, full of doubt. Looking into that void. Not sure what to do. Emotions are hard. People are complex. People are hard. Someone says “just crank up the physical, that’s all you need to do”. Release the animal side. The wolf in you. Then you’ll be just fine. Be the alpha. There’s a real draw for that.

The fun thing is… this has more technical guarantees than the blockchain does. The blockchain doesn’t guarantee it won’t happen. It just made that in theory it’s infeasible to do so. Hmm, this is a “he who has the most lottery tickets is more likely to win the lottery… and then but more lottery tickets game” that tends towards centralization. Yet somehow it’s “it can NEVER be hacked”

The “I wither the slings of arrows of outrageous fortune…. Downvote me if you must!” Is a bit dramatic. It’s Internet points dude. BTC isn’t non reversible. They have done it before. It’s not decentralized. The whole “there’s a lottery and the bigger you are the more tickets you buy…. Giving you money to buy more tickets” guarantees an eventual centralization. There’s no way for that not to be the case. The transaction problems are many. Besides the 7tps average there are times it’s much linger. Wasn’t there some time not long ago where it was in the low double digit hours where no transactions happened? To be sure your transaction hit the chain how long should you wait? 10 minutes after? 20? How long enough is a chain after your block that with “guarantee” it’s on chain? The guarantee in air quotes - see above where they reversed quite a few transactions in BTC and what was on chain, hey guess what it’s not there any more. There are so many compromises made but they’re offset by Decentralization!! And immutability! Except it’s not decentralized. Or immutable. So why bother?

In recent memory we had a huge increase in the money supply and not having inflation. In fact we were so close to 0% inflation (and the risk of deflation) the Fed had to do more work to get inflation going and the economy moving. Deflation sucks. Ask Japan and the billions, probably a trillion, on trying to get out of their deflationary spiral. Oh, BTW, their DEflation has lead to the central bank interventions. This “ermagehhhrd making money is going to give us instant hyperinflation we’re all gonna die we need ______” is sooooo annoying. And of all the things that could possibly go into _____ BTC is one of the worst.

Look up “sensitivity based on initial state”. Or chaos theory. People think that “why markets are perfect given from ${deity} and it’s us lowly humans that fuck them up”. Nahh. Markets work until they don’t. Look up Andrew Jackson and the Bank of the US. He hated interference from the (central Bank) and decided to let it die. Then financial Panic. No lender of last resort. No backstops. A series of panics (what they called depressions/recessions back then) that caused such bad famines that the Americans that didn’t starve to death were shorter for a generation or two. Finally JPMorgan said fuck this shit. Locked a bunch of bankers in a room said we’re gonna make a central bank again and nobodys leaving until it’s set. Does shit happen? Fuck yeah. We’re humans, meager meat based computers against the computing power of the Universe. But make no mistake it’s better than what it used to be

I’m an old man, at least that what my kids tell me…. Ive written (well, ported) a device driver that made it to UnixWare. That said, I think there’s a whole slew of things you can get done with just the bare minimum of kernel knowledge. Sysadmin is such a broad topic now you can get a lot of things done just knowing userland and scripting and ans oboe and such. Then on the third hand, I think this gets you on the door…. Down the road yeah yoh should know more. I had to install a new kernel (by apt, not by hand) to get some new kernel features for containers. eBPF is powerful but is only useful with some kernel knowledge. Containers are the future, or the present, and are made possible by kernel features. In short (heh, right) you can get a job and be decent without deep kernel knowledge. But you won’t be good. You’ll be passable. And you should use your time at work to ask around and get a safari subscription.

No one is going into his house for his stove. They will try to get you to change, with market dynamics. Rebates. These clowns always talk about markets, yet they ignore them when it fits their agenda. Methane is bad for the environment. There are lake in any pipe. They emit toxic gases when firing up.

USD isn’t the reserve currency by accident. The world needed a Lingua Franca for currency and the US was able to snatch it away from the British Pound, partly because Harry Dexter White was a geek and Keynes liked to party. It’s got inertia. You need momentum to counter inertia. As far as BRIC goes…. Brazil has economic issues. So much so, that the country that had a brutal military dictatorship not that long ago voted for a military fascist. Thanks to Trumpism he’s now our problem, but still they’re not one to be making waves. Russia is a gas station with nukes. They have hard currency issues and even with the threat of winter they couldn’t get the EU to budge. They’re going to be more and more irrelevant and unstable. Hardly the vanguard for the move to a new currency. China is big enough, but too restrictive. Capital controls. Reporting gaps. No one trusts their economic numbers. There’s always the issues with nationalization, and competing with state run or state adjacent entities. India, I don’t know much about their Economy but at the least, the cheese stands alone. There’s also the fact they’ve had border conflict violence with China in the past year. The roots of that conflict go back decades and I don’t think they are going to be Buddy Buddy any time soon. The US is a 20 trillion USD economy. There’s 30 trillion of USD denominated debt that is considered so solid to be risk free (well until MTGreene has her way). There’s no one close. USD may be bad, but everything else is measurably worse.

Everything has multiple factors. The run up in home values was also partly let’s have something, anything, that appreciates in value that the non-wall street guy can come in to. This is partly due to Reaganomics, the fact that most wives who could work already did so there’s no dual income bump, and a slew of things. At the root we’re all human and shortsighted. One real shift was, this wasn’t just a bunch of Wall Street guys that got hit. It was Main Street banks that pretended to be Wall Street. Maybe it’s better to say “contagion was helped by repeal of Glass Steagall”.

There are a host of issues. One is, there are two fundamentally opposed forces in cryptocurrencies. There’s “BTC to the MOON!!” And there’s “appreciating currencies actually totally blow as a currency”. Those are fundamentally opposite and you can’t tech your way out of that. A currency is boring. People look at USD “it’s so boring!!” that’s a strength not a weakness. It’s as if someone seeing me hammering a nail says “why that’s not cool you need an internet connected ball peen that tweets every time you strike and then uploads to Instagram! Umm nope. I need to buy a snickers. Two, people assume markets are some kind of magic that are always perfect until people fuck with them. Markets are made of people and their actions. They can break. There are no mechanisms for fixing. Can people fuck things up? Hell yeah. Google “Maduro Diet”. But that means you need to elect good people.

Not true Mexican style. They’re pretty simple and are defined by freshness of ingredients. The base taco I know - corn tortilla with beef and diced raw onions and cilantro. A query - do folks think tacos were only invented when we had refrigerators to keep the crema from spoiling? :)

Mexican street style tacos are arrachera (skirt steak) with cilantro and super fresh diced onions on a warmed (with a touch of lard…yummy) corn tortilla. It’s simple so a lot depends on the freshness of the ingredients and how the meat is cooked. The whole corn thing - it’s the grain that Mexico created. Wheat? That’s from the Fertile Crescent. Introduced with the Europeans.

Ivermectin is fatal for humans, doesn’t do any damage on the Coronavirus that gives you COVID-19, tastes so much like shit horses won’t even put up with it, and we have real drugs that do what Ivermectin pretends to do (Paxlovid).

Glass Steagal put an end to this after the Great Depression. Of course the banks didn’t like this. They lobbied hard to repeal. Eventually convincing even a Democrat “oh we’re totally stable. Zero risk!!” To do so. (Of all the BS reasons the GOP came up to smear Clinton, here’s the real dirt - but then they’d have to say regulation is good so they can’t use it). One of the big problems with 2008 was “banks investing customer money in magic beans”. That’s why the banks were backed - because if they weren’t customer money is lost banks lose all faith the world pretty much ends. They rebuilt the regulatory regime somewhat with Dodd-Frank. I don’t know if this was just missed or is there a real hole here. Probably a bit of both.

Even better - consumers get to pay (in the form of higher bills) to pay for the bigger generating capacity. And in case of emergency, they pay again, to keep the miners off the capacity that consumers have paid for. Win win!! Well, not for the people. That’s lose lose. Of course.

Argument: We, Texas, don’t like regulation. We are fine with the grid running lean with zero spare capacity. Let’s pretend it’s 2015. Let’s pretend that global warming isn’t a thing, that the hit on the grid from air conditioning won’t climb like crazy. Let’s pretend that somehow the freak weather in Cali is not globally ducked climate and that it’s Pelosi. Hmm. We need to force the “Free” Market to build out extra capacity. How do we do that? * invite high electricity consuming corporations like miners into the state * prices rise. Let’s hope they rise slowly enough that the real mom and pops don’t revolt. * let’s hope that ERCOT doesn’t just buy another yacht and instead builds more plants. * let’s pay money for those big power suckers to go away for a day or two So, Texas ERCOT customers pay extra to build capacity for the miners. And they are lucky enough to pay AGAIN by paying miners tax dollars to not use the capacity, that they as customers paid for. Luckily all you have to say is “remember the Alamo” or “librulz!!!” and they’ll ignore all this shot and swallow whatever Abbott has ti say.

The speaker needs a simple majority of the house. 435 seats so 418 votes. That part is simple. The hard part is: * the Dems don’t like McCarthy.

Like who knew that guy would get no support. So the 418 needs to come solely from the Republicans. Also, they have a slim majority, barely over 212. That means only 5 have to not vote for him. Meaning a very very small number of hard core crazy Republicans can gum up the works. Including, that crazy stalker bitch. You know the “I’m claiming family values but I’ve cheated on my hubby.

There’s some speculation. As to myself? Unsure. I do know that the concessions McCarthy has offered would basically keep him beholden to a small group of crazies - just 5 would be enough to make him call a vote to remove. Meaning the extremists have more power. I do know that Republicans lose less when the government is a shit show. Even when they make it into a shit show.

The Republicans won the House of Representatives. As such, they get to elect a new Speaker of the House. A big deal, they get to do committee assignments and such. 3rd in line to Presidency IIRC. Kevin McCarthy is the major candidate to become speaker. But he’s got some die hard opposition. Is it because he’s an asshole and wannabe fascist? Kinda … it’s that he’s not *enough* of an asshole and wannabe fascist. So there is a block of people who won’t vote for him no matter what. The issue - besides being good for pop own futures, technically the Speaker swears in all the new members. So, no new members of The House. It’s gonna be a real shitshow.

There is kinda one - all money is a trust relationship. Getting the trust relationship is a catch 22. “Hey it’s math!” could be a way to jump start that catch 22…. If the “you can’t double spend” was the only type of trust you needed. Turns out, getting tokens people value, and value consistently, is an extremely complex problem with many many layers of trust. By focusing on one or two they literally completely 100% ignored some fundamental types of trust that are absolutely necessary.

Based on the rules of the Constitution the opening for a third party Presidential win is virtually non existent. So small I almost didn’t put virtually there “so you’re saying they’re a chance…” Either you win 270 electoral votes outright or it gets thrown to the house with odd voting rules (that benefit small states - which are devastating to a third party) and you expect to win one of those? Even TR couldn’t pull it off. That said, I hope Trump runs.

Given 4 years Bernie actually did worse with a fundamental core of the Democratic Party. He was almost out completely in 2020. The great hope of Bernie in 2020 was “all the other candidates do not what makes sense for them but what makes sense for Bernie to win”, get Bernie to Super Tuesday and only then could he compete 1on1 with Biden. Besides being “not Trump” Biden has gone a lot farther left then what people expected. Not as much as you, or I for that matter, want. But when compared to “well we finally realized the Orange Florida fascist with dementia has dementia, let’s support the Florida fascist without dementia!!” we’re not out of the woods yet. Carrying a torch for what could have been “if only people voted for Bernie more than Biden” isn’t useful.

As a Gen Xer that’s been liberal since I was a kid - probably since before this dude was born - I vote Democrat. Because I’m smart enough to realize “why I don’t vote Democrat I vote actual left” just would hurt my own self interests in the type of voting system we have.

Umm. Both can be true. Yes, entrenched tax policy as far as Carried Interest still being around _does_ mean people who are in total agreement on those (as opposed to hating them but having bigger fish to fry) are pieces or shut. Also trump is a turd. “Why I’m a successful businessman, I’m so successful you should vote for me I’m incorruptible, in fact I’ll donate my salary” all BS.

I had a friend who was a flight attendant. The city he lived in (Chicago) was not the city he was based out of (NYC). He had a small pied a terre there, that he split with like 10 other “roommates” since it was so sporadic. Also, there are filters on flight attendants. If you think about it, they’re likely to be adventurous. Also, there are physical constraints - you’re a safety officer that happens to serve peanuts. So you’re gonna be an in shape adventurous person sharing an apartment away from home. Rock on.

TBH this did kinda happen in 2009 2010. All the money the Fed gave to banks filled holes in their balance sheets, stayed under their mattresses, and didn’t cause the “errrmaggehhrds high-perflashun GreeeeeSssee” people were worried about. But, this was all for a purpose. There still was a lot of other money flowing around. You had people controlling the flow and trying their best for things not to seize up. The whole point of BTC is to have no one controlling the flow. My metaphor is “setting the cruise control and hey let’s let go of the wheel. We’re fine right now we should’ve fine in the future right?” You know, like that scene in Fight Club. That worked out well.

Did you even know where WuHan was 3 years ago? I did, only by accident. But there’s some unnamed dude that affects your life. The invisible hand of the Butterfly Effect. You admit it for that one dude, but dismiss it for Elon. Teslas kill people on the road. They catch on fire. Tesla got millions of tax dollars, yours included. SpaceX as well. They moved to Texas, putting more stress on the power grid. He’s in the process of destroying a (admittedly, weak as hell) social network. He’s using it to push far right paranoia, and seems a wink and a nod for political violence. These things affect me. They affect you. You can choose to ignore it if you like. I’m sure there are other things in your life that affect you more. But make no mistake he does affect you. Should he? I agree with you. Hell no. But he does.

In a world where some dude coughed in a market 3 years ago and people are still dying by the thousands it’s hard to believe that people don’t understand how connected we are, how what one does affects us all, but here we are. I care about this dude because he has an outside effect on what happens to me, much more than he probably should have, with his tendencies to sociopathy. He also lies a lot - besides people dying because of his half baked “full” “self driving” the whole “buy a Tesla save the planet” falls on its face when you see this behavior. Besides: Musk, people follow him, fawn all over him. Hooray!! Musk, people follow him, call him on hypocrisy. Booooooo

I flipped my crown. It’s away from my wrist. Sometimes when I flex my wrist I’d trigger it, which is annoying. Paying on the watch in drive throughs is so cool. I don’t worry about dropping my phone. My watch is strapped to me. Keep the band a bit loose. I like it tight (like I like my shoelaces, hat, etc) but if you keep it tight and wear all the time you’ll get a skin condition. Wash the watch regularly. Pick up another band just for rotation purposes. I also got into home automation. I can open my garage door (over near WiFi) with it. So I can leave the house with watch and AirPods and nothing else. Screen protector. I lost a watch (luckily enough an old AW3, scrap heap time anyway) because of random smacks. They build up over time

The shell game - the “pea” is a soft foam ball. Easy enough to tip the “shells” (whatever…. Bottle caps?) just a bit so the ball pops out from under it, and you palm it and place under another shell. Oh, and there’s a shill someplace. He’s not only gonna win the first game, but he’s big and he’s muscle just in case someone wins when they shouldn’t. Still, you have a better chance against that than making money in crypto.

I was a libertarian for literally 2 weeks. The “don’t fuck with anyone and it will all work out” does have some surface appeal. Anything deeper than surface shows it to be unworkable. There should be no more libertarians after COVID. The fact that 3 years ago some dude in a market 8000 miles away coughed and I’m still masking shows how interconnected things are. Pretending that they aren’t just means you’re hoping that your reality will somehow conquer actual reality, and no. It won’t.

In practice it didn’t serve you. Economy was constrained by how much gold you had. Gold mercantilism was really shitty. When the Spanish found a bunch of gold in the Americas it made things shitty with inflation. And oh did it break down in the Great Depression. The gold standard made things worse. In fact you can look at a GDP graph of the 1930s and see when they soft slid off the gold standard. Their economies got better. It’s a simple theory. But it doesn’t serve our economies. It’s tying yourselves to orthodoxy ….. just because.

Always will be. What changed? We Nerfed some regulation. Take away the lack of regulation (errr actually regulate it) there’s no real advantage to cryptocurrencies. There’s huge downsides too.

Vitalik stating that some supposed “bad” things are not bad because they don’t inflict damage on others. His example was Child Porn, that if it’s just on your laptop there’s no harm. Kinda skipping the whole “well maybe no harm at that particular moment on your hard drive, but it’s a time capsule of sexual assault at some other point in time”. There’s a whole minefield there.

Prisoners Dilemma is a thought experiment. The word Prisoner gives weird connotations to the experiment. It’s really “game theory with negative externalities and non coordination”. Iterated prisoners dilemma can explain a lot of things, society and religion itself being one of them.

In my old neighborhood the Crawford coal fire plant stayed on wayyyyyy past its sell by date. Making everyone around it good and sick.

Merge is geek talk for a code change. You have a “main” branch of code. And a test branch, experimental branch, feature branch, whatever you want to call it. “The Merge” was having one of those experimental branches get merged to main, what everyone runs. This Merge was the Big One, going from Proof Of Work to Proof Of Stake. You’re in a time capsule. Pre-merge. At the time this was supposed to be high risk high reward. High risk - you’re fundamentally changing how the network works. High reward - it may lower transaction costs so low that Eth becomes like The Crypto. It ended up being neither. Good job - it went very smoothly. They deserve congratulations. But, none of the benefits rolled out. The power became much more centralized and no real benefit to anyone outside of that.

They had to be more efficient. What the paper is talking about, adjusting valve lash at home probably solid lifters, is an old bruising V8. We know (somewhat) better now. Turbos and 4 and 6 cylinders. Hybrids. It’s a lost art much like learning how to adjust a horse’s yoke collar for a horse drawn carriage. Not that people are stupider now.

There’s a general “this one thing used to be hard, and now isn’t, _and nothing new that’s complicated has been invented since nothing at ALL_” vibe here yeah. Internet being one. Computers. Psychology - back then you basically ignored things until you got a crippling alcohol dependency and beat your wife and kids. This thanksgiving I had a talk with my niece about SSRI drug interactions. Parenting - all the parenting my dad really ever did for me was every once in a while “do the best you can”. Umm, thanks. Real specific. Any given weekend I talk more to my 8 year old than my dad did in my/his shared lifetime. I’d rather be a good dad than a shit dad that knew how to do a valve lifter adjustment. And what that paper is talking about is solid lifter cams. They were replaced in like the 70s with hydraulic lifters. Then even better motors came out. “Hey grandpa can you show me how to adjust the lifters on this…. Electric F150??”

Early on the days of cryptocurrency coincided unfortunately with a bad number generator on Debian. I don’t remember the exact mechanics on how it affected wallets, but any wallet generated from a computer with that bug had the key guessed and the wallet wiped out. The insanity is not the key phrase per se. The insanity is thinking “why let’s have a general purpose currency that depends on you knowing every patch to the RNG and crypto toolchain”.

You’re paying for the services. Want to drive to your house? That road takes money. Want city sewer? You’re more than welcome with a nice septic tank in your back yard. But if not, that sewer pipe costs money. That stoplight at the corner, so you can drive home and not get TBoned? Yep. Takes money. That school, that you moved close to just to get into that school district? Yep. Takes money. I get a breakdown of all the services that my (whoa is it fucking high) taxes pay for. But all kinda make sense. Ask your county or municipality for a tax breakdown. You’re always welcome to live somewhere unincorporated, no water no sewer no roads no firemen no police. “Back the blue back the red!!” Ahh cool so you’re willing to pay taxes to keep them? “Nope”.

You own a specific Receipt that contains a URL on a specific blockchain You don’t own: * the URL. It can be used on any blockchain. Even the same blockchain, though some chains may search for the exact same URL in different Receipts on the chain and prevent it. * the Receipt, if the chain splits. I don’t know what the situation is for bored apes when Eth split to Eth Classic after the merge. Technical - you now own two Receipts on two chains. Law - no fucking idea. * the art. Nothing preventing someone from downloading the art and making another URL and selling that Receipt. * the copyright. Like Goes Up has a great analysis - what if you “own” the copyright to an ape on green, and another dude owns it on blue. Who can make a TV show? What if you own an ape and you make him smile ooopsie that’s another NFT This is all BS and not worth wading j to unless you like lawyers

Oh noes a bank run!! Totally unthought of before in the history of finance? What happens if a real bank had rumors like that? They’d have to deploy a ~~army of bots~~ _FDIC, Central Bank Lender of Last Resort_ ! In 2008 or 9, forgot which, it was an open secret that Citibank was going under. There were no bank runs. The FUD didn’t kill them. They had the government on their 6. Well more like the depositors had the government on their 6 and Citi came along for the ride. There were no Northern Rock style lines. It was something that Washington DC did a lot of work, behind the scenes, and on Main Street nobody saw shit. FUD leading to self fulfilling prophecy Bank runs. Yea. This is fundamental to the system. Therefore _This Is a Fixed Problem_. As many have said, including Weaver, crypto is speedrunning 500 years of banking mistakes in real time.

In 2008 the world went to shit. Greed, relaxed regulations, people compromised. The world looked like it was gonna collapse. Then the backstop stopped the slide but didn’t do a lot directly (it did indirectly but most people don’t see that) and that had an impact. Many people saw the system failing. Nobody was in bracelets and Orange jumpsuits. Besides Bitcoin, it also kind of led to a wave of fascism around the world. Both the US and Brazil, the western hemispheres biggest democracies, went down the fascism path, though (kinda) pulled out of it. SBF in bracelets is fucking important.

Pets.com was a stupid stupid stupid idea, take a widely available low cost but high bulk and weight (therefore shipping cost will kill you) and ship it. There’s nothing salvageable from the business idea. But the computers, they could be bought cheap. And instead of pets.com they could use it to make, Idunno, Slashdot or something. Let’s.com burned to the ground, but what’s the Phoenix? Can there be one for crypto? It’s totally brain dead now. The margins are stupid. Only VC money got it to where it is now. But is there a shred that’s useful? Honestly I don’t think so. The cost of mining is dominated by electricity not by physical objects that can be bought for Pennies on the dollar. The rigs themselves age out. BTC mining requires special BTC mining equipment. Can do literally nothing else. I’m just wondering. I honestly don’t think so.

What’s gonna happen - a person realizes all the signs were there and they just ignored them, or *every* market is rigged beyond redemption and they won’t invest in anything. Humans will do the latter. They won’t invest in retirement (pension? What’s that). And the businesses that truly use the markets to get capital will be screwed.

Remove that utility (perceived or real, mostly perceived) and prices will go down. Down. Down. The only thing that can counter it is in the much thinner market (because using the fuckers is so hard) is easier to manipulate

People paid decent cash because besides skill they had relationships, ones hard to establish. If naked short selling was a general thing why we wouldn’t have to have this desk where we paid millions for people and accounting and tools. I say this and I’m done - naked short selling is illegal.

The fact that thousands of Jews ended up voting for an anti-Semite kinda proved that the ballot was confusing (precisely what the law was there to prevent - I guess there’s an “unless it’s my brother” exception to laws). Then for the recount, even with the finger on the scales, Gore was up. But, SCOTUS “well it was certified can’t do nothing now” Gore backed off. Should he have?

I’m an acquaintance of Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, the federal representative. He also ran for Mayor of Chicago. Along the many shitty things Rahm threw at him (and former Chicagoans who returned to Florida did) one thing he didn’t do was fuck with his kid. I knew Sammy when he was a kid. When he got older he had mental issues and actually was arrested. Rahm, for all the shit things he did (like lie about the LaQuan McDonald shooting) he didn’t bring up Chuy’s kid. Even Chicago politicians have more class. Hunter is not in politics. He’s not daddy’s special advisor like blondie is. He’s not doing any “blind” trust work for daddy like the two stooges are. He’s just a dude that fucked up his life a bit and dad loves him no matter. The “family values” republicans should be all over that and offering help not trying to publicize his penis.

Stock market is not a greater fool scam 1) it’s heavily regulated 2) stocks have ownership. Stocks have voting power. Also, it is a claim against future earnings (in the form of dividends). Coins have no dividend power. As far as I know no coins imply ownership. Most don’t imply voting. Is the market rigged? Yeah. It’s a construct of humans. There always be humans trying for a scam. When prevented by scams by regulations humans will not stop. Some will try to find other ways of scamming. Some will try to nerf regulations. Many will do both. But no, it’s not the same. I’m buying something when I buy a stock. That thing I bought is enforced by precedent and laws. If I buy any coin I get… not much.

To get money to work for you in banks has taken literally hundreds of years of regulation. If you want something like that just wait until the CBDC drops and save a lot of carbon and eWaste

Why does it go up after halving? Some think “hey it’s getting more scarce let’s get in!!” In reality it’s “block rewards for mining just got cut in half…. Won’t SOMEONE think of the miners!!” The “scarce resource must go up up up” has been dead for a while now.

The history of bad actors is also the future - full of bad actors. There’s no way to make money outside of speculation and wildcat-bank-ish fractional reserve loans. Speculation is too volatile, because of the general uselessness of the thing. Fractional reserve loans are too risky because there’s no backstop and any whiff of a problem becomes a (wildcat) bank run. There’s bad actors because it’s endemic. It can’t be pulled out. This is what crypto is. A bunch of pickpockets and cat burglars telling you that having cops is a waste of your tax dollars and you believing it. snake oil salesmen saying the FDA is worthless.

Pre civil war we had wildcat banks that gave out their own local money. There were vast books of discount rates … this bank had this worth this much, this bank has this worth this much less. Part of the discounts were distances - primitive transportation networks made settlement times made a difference. There’s no taxation there. The banks can’t enforce taxes. But, the banks, in a patchwork of values determined somewhat by perceived stability somewhat by logistics, were able to establish worth. The Yap stone coins, I learned about these as a kid. What I didn’t learn then - if you dropped a rock off your boat (these things are huge and they had canoes essentially, easy to tip) you still earned that value. Look up Brazil and the URV… it was purely virtual but because it was stable it convinced people of value and it became the currency without one URV being given or received. Yes, required as a settlement currency for taxes is a big deal but it’s far from the only thing the government does that stabilizes the dollar just by existing. If “it’s a settlement currency” is important than the 25 trillion or so in USD denominated government debt, or loan payments payable in USD should be mentioned as well. All money is fiat. All money is fiat. Sorry if I repeat myself - all money is fiat. It’s either first order fiat or some other higher order fiat. The trick is what do you have backing it up.

2008 was “some kind of engineered asset could never fail because line go up, and everybody bought into it”. Lehman had a fund, that broke the Buck, orrrr… untethered like Tether. So far the firewall from speculative desks and normal every banking has held and no banks have gotten in trouble. Let’s hope it holds.

Their cryptos were getting so big they needed to bail out all those block-chain-blocks for the new billionaires. I’ve heard the Winklevoss twins are at Home Depot buying like tons of buckets for those bits, but Home Depot doesn’t take Apple Pay and (whichever brother was supposed to) forgot his wallet.

I get your point. I don’t think you get mine. That’s fine. I probably haven’t explained well. The debate about Colin has not been “oh, I see he’s trying to show the military way of respect to someone fallen, but I don’t think he’s earned that” it’s been “hey, libruls not happy happy joy joy to symbol of freedom, let’s take away his freedom to work”. Jerry Jones knelt with his team. At the end of games, usually there’s a huddle of Christians taking a knee for Iesho/Jesus. But Colin, yeah he’s out. It’s inconsistent. And it’s inconsistency in the service of hate and fear, and that hate and fear is in the service of getting people to vote against their interests and making themselves poorer… and more hateful and fearful. It’s not a good look.

Two other ironies: Rainbow flag…. Really? And the kneel - Kaepernick used to just sit on the sidelines for the Anthem. A green Beret came up to him, and something like “I know you have issues with this country, but me and my brothers fought and died for that flag. When a brother is lost, we take a knee out of respect, can you take a knee out of respect for the america you think has fallen” or something. So he did, and the spectacle, and the Orange POtuS that got beat not once but 3 times by the NFL uses a wedge issue. Irony all around.

There’s a problem you have in banking (and even tether is a type of wildcat bank) and that’s timelines. Deposits are short term? Liquid, at will, walk in any time scoop em up. Meanwhile your loans are longer term, less liquid. Good like calling them in early (though in crypto recently you’re lucky to get anything at all). The glue that squares this circle is confidence. For banks, it’s the FDIC. For crypto (and for housing in 2008) it was To The Moon!! prices will go up who will really want to get their money out. If tether has their money in bonds (and they said they’re out of commercial paper so - if they can be trusted- they’re in government bonds which tend to pay less) what’s the timeframe? Are they 10 year? 5 year? I still have stuff in my news queue about how FTX _appears_ insolvent - they went belly up so fast. Tether is just a zero percent interest bank, where your payment is not interest payments but utility in crypto. If there is a bank run on this wildcat bank (and there’s no FDIC backstopping it) hooooo boy

Yeah it’s easy to see this as fat cats getting paid. How do we prevent that? Good solid regulation. But the fat cats (and the Republican Party) try to get you to think if you say regulation 3 times the world ends, with both Candyman and Beetlejuice coming for your soul and your flag. We don’t have the ideal of the humble regulator finding a 0 where should be a 1,000,000 saving toy, we have the ideal of the rich white guy ceo buying shit and wrecking it (and the careers of thousands) and hey it’s ok he bought it he’s entitled.

Banks make money on fractional reserve loans. To keep that stable takes a shit load of regulation. And visible regulation, like FDIC guarantees. Citibank was super unstable in 2009 or so, but it’s still around - people trusted FDIC more than Citi and they didn’t get a bank run. I don’t know how tether makes money. Either you loan out fractional reserve style (with insurance backup, and that insurance costs money) or you sit on some super stable super liquid investment, which has no yield. That barely there yield needs to support a lot of engineers and defenses against attacks. Where the money comes from, I just don’t know.

There’s another way to prevent the consequences of being an asshole - not being an asshole. That logic seems to have evaded him. I’ll leave the “easy to find examples of being an actual asshole, just not being one in a way that gets he de-platformed” to you if you want to look. They’re pretty plentiful if you want to look.
