  1. I've been mining ZCash on my 1080 Ti for the past several months now. Not a significant deal money wise, but it makes more sense then letting a perfectly good high-end PC sit unused for no reason.

    Philosophical proposal: Purposeful hypocrisy

    I'm just going to archive this thread in case anyone asks me why I think the public education system should be obliterated.

    Philosophical proposal: Purposeful hypocrisy

    A hypocrite is someone who has abandoned all principles. He doesn't burden himself with moral code, yet he insists that everyone else should. He's the ultimate consequentialist, in that he's willing to sell out his own credibility and the well being of others, usually in exchange for some short term and meaningless benefit to himself. The highest forms of life are those that live according to clear and well defined universal principles, derived from universally preferable behavior, and continually employ reason and abstraction in order to bring themselves and others around them closer to agreement on those principles in order to serve universally preferable goals.

    Philosophical proposal: Purposeful hypocrisy

    There is no lower form of life than the hypocrite. The fact that you're trying these mental gymnastics to justify not just your hypocrisy, but hypocrisy itself, is a very big clue that you would rather take the easy road and embrace your faults than take the rewarding road and overcome them.
  5. Watched some gameplay video. Looks like a low quality total conversion for Hexen 2.

    So, what do you think about BitCoin?

    Bitcoin absolutely does NOT make any promises in regards to return on investment. What crack are you smoking? You have identified the exact reason why Bitcoin is not and can never be a pyramid scheme. If it were designed to function as a pyramid scheme, which it wasn't, it couldn't possibly have survived its 4-year bear market from 2013-2017.

    So, what do you think about BitCoin?

    I just bought a new 1080 Ti last week. Was able to justify it due to it being able to pay for itself in a few months, and after that it's free money. And I hardly game at all; the graphics upgrade is just a bonus. It's pissing off all the autistic gamers, and for that I couldn't be happier.

    How are other people emotionally?

    Things are better than ever. Physically, financially, everything is coming up heads. No shock that this leads to very good things emotionally and mentally.

    So, what do you think about BitCoin?

    Ripple is highly centralized, has weak privacy, has a huge maximum supply, and it's a 1st generation crypto like Bitcoin. It doesn't have the technology expected of 2nd and 3rd generation cryptos. IOTA simply became massively overpriced due the story of the partnership with Microsoft and Samsung that was completely debunked. The price still hasn't corrected.

    So, what do you think about BitCoin?

    Although Ethereum has gone up 90-fold since I wrote that, I'm not so sure anymore that ETH will reach #1. At some point, a transactional currency will surpass BTC, and there are a number of candidates. Quantum is the most compelling right now, as it takes the best features of Ethereum and Bitcoin and improves on them significantly. Bitcoin Cash, Dash, Litecoin, Monero, Zcash are excellent candidates as well, although Litecoin is basically "Bitcoin 1.5." . EOS and Waves have a ton of upside. Some sleepers with big upside: SALT, Golem, Factom, Einsteineum, Civic, and FunFair. I am pretty staying away from the following ones entirely: Ripple, Cardano, IOTA, Ethereum Classic, BitConnect, Dogecoin

    You "have to" declare capital gains when you cash in btc, but no moreso than you "have to" report income when a family member pays you cash to fix their roof or something.

    So, what do you think about BitCoin?

    This thread reminds me why I never post here any more. Being able to quit your day job and eat steak & lobster every night, really takes away the appeal of responding to people who refuse to educate themselves. And no, I'm not cashing in my crypto.

    The police are holding you at gunpoint.

    Damn, that's what we were missing all along. We forgot to include a "don't murder people" slideshow in the police academy! Looks like we just found the solution to police violence.

    What do you eat?

    Gave up on the fudge, I found it makes the rotisserie chicken too slimy.
