    I would commit first degree murder and then fabricate evidence to make it look like self defense.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Things are better than ever. Physically, financially, everything is coming up heads. No shock that this leads to very good things emotionally and mentally.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Gave up on the fudge, I found it makes the rotisserie chicken too slimy.
  10. Probably making up 98% of my diet, roughly in order... - 3 egg omelettes (bacon, tomato, mushroom, green onion) - Chicken wings - Steak (ribeye, striploin) - Baked chicken breast - Roasted vegetables (sweet potato, carrots, beets) - Rotisserie chicken - Fresh carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, etc - Calamari - Haagen Dasz - Beef jerky - Pork rinds - Cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts philberts, - Coffee w/ whipping cream - Zevia brand soda - Whole milk
  11. I would be surprised if someone could show me a single gaming community that wasn't dominated by anime-fetished teens and tweens with unjustifiably high self esteem despite having almost nothing of value to offer to society or themselves.
  12. For compressed video streams, HD video is only HD on the black and white (luminance) layer. Color (chrominance) layer is encoded at half the resolution both ways. This reduces overall bitrate by about 50%. And that's in addition to all the other blocky compression tricks.
  13. How dead is it? Since it uses a standard 2.5" ide, all you need is the proper cable adapter to hook it up to a standard desktop PC.
  14. Would you like some free tampons? There are no strings attached.
  15. Listing:

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes [Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + Digital Copy] (Bilingual)

    Life of Pi - Collector's Edition [Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] (Bilingual)

    Hello. I just received The Life of Pi 3 disc collectors edition. Unfortunately, it only contained one of the three discs (the 3D blu ray) along with a written explanation that the other 2 discs were not included. This was not indicated at any stage during the ordering process. Since the item was not as described, please indicate how I may receive a full refund. Thank you.

    As this was at one time a rental product the discs were separated so that both discs could be rented separately. We stated this in our product disclaimer on Amazon as follows:

    "FULLY GUARANTEED! 3D BLU-RAY DISC ONLY – BLU-RAY AND DVD DISCS NOT INCLUDED. Previously viewed rental product, all discs cleaned and checked for playability. Cases or UPC’s may not be exactly as shown. Cases and discs MAY have rental label(s) attached. Purchase is for feature disc only, all secondary discs, bonus features and/or digital copies may not be included."

    This disclaimer can be seen in the Condition column on the same screen used to "add to cart". This was also reflected in the price, at $13.99, I suspect when you receive your copy of the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, you will have the same concerns, this again would be reflected in the $8.00 price point.

    That said, we do not want unhappy customers, so if you would return the movies to us (you should be able to use the same package and just mark it "return to sender") once received, we will be happy to refund you the amount of the products, which in this case would be $21.99. Thank you and please acknowledge if you will be returning these two items.

    Hello and thanks for your response. However I'm not quite sure you understand. I did not make any mistake on my part. The listing is clearly for the 3-disc collector's set. You admitted to intentionally sending me the collection with missing discs, which is a serious violation of Amazon's rules. You also admitted that the Planet of the Apes movie will also have a missing disc. I see no reason why I should go to the cost or inconvenience of returning the item due to a mistake on your part. Please go ahead and refund me the total cost of both items, plus the original shipping cost, which comes to a total of $28.97. If you do this then I will happy and there will be no further problems. I would also suggest that you review your listings to make sure to remove any items that do not comply with Amazon's selling rules, as I buy a lot of 3D movies and I would hate to have to inconvenience you with this again. Thanks and have a great day.

    Hello,

    We are writing to confirm that we have processed your refund in the amount of CDN$ 28.97 for your Order 701-8312977-3711417 from --------------.
