> company convicted of the largest bribery scandal now wants their most successful product of all time by fiat tested on your children

:blobcatcoffee: ah yes we're still in the nightmare timeline how are you today

@icedquinn I’m reading articles from 2009 and 2012. Bribery and fraud. There’s no conceivable way they would ever repeat these types of events with those fines being a very small fraction of what they gained from commuting such abhorrent acts. 🧐

@verretor that feeling when satire has become more believable than the “truth”.

Most people know this and they will still comply.

Focus on the ones that won’t.

Whoa.. this lady is amazing 🔥❤️🔥

@mrman What Turkey ends up with is baron land with no revenue and a crumbling government due to excessive spending and no income. They have very few tools to use here. They can tax it, feebly attempt confiscation, or begin arrests. With no real way to prove ownership all three of these methods are hard to enforce.

@mrman El Salvador will (not immediately but eventually) prosper. They found an export that will last as long as their volcano does. Should that fail they can turn to solar. The revenues generated from this will build infrastructure and help pull them out of poverty and bring them prosperity. Meanwhile Turkey wages a war they can not win. There is no point to direct an attack so their citizens become the target. Many will just leave taking their entire net worth with them.

@verretor That quote could not be more true in this example. Their ineptitude will shine like a beacon to the world for all to see.

For the past few years when posting a story many have included the source. I see a trend openly developing and am calling it out to hasten its development. I see many Bitcoiners leaving out the sources and creating their own headlines.
While I like seeing the source posted with the post, leaving it out it naturally forces the reader to DYOR (or they continue to be sheep and just believe it anyways).

This is in line with one of our many ethos that is “Don’t trust, verify”

Finally some balance and order.

El Salvador - fully embraces Bitcoin
Turkey - openly announces war against it

The next 4-12 months will show how each handles and who ultimately comes out as the winner.
I can spoil this now if you’d like to know who will be spend countless amounts of money and still loose, and who will become victorious with only fractions spent.

@MoonCapital there was a movie that summed this up pretty well. Each character had a timer on their forearm that didn’t work until age 25 or so. You literally worked for time and spent it as money, you could live forever if you had enough of it. There were storerooms full of devices filled with time but people dropped dead in the streets from lack of it. I don’t recall what the name of it is but it was a hard watch for those that made the connection and didn’t see it before.

RT @Wealth_Theory
The fact that billions of working men and women must sacrifice 40+ years of their time, energy, health, and focus to gain access to fiat currencies that central banks can replicate with a key stroke is injustice on the largest scale humanity has ever seen.

It is theft. #Bitcoin

21m Bitcoin divided by 7 continents = 3m each

Subtract the average of lost coins 4 to 6m = 2.28m Bitcoin per continent.

The smallest continent (Australia) has 42m people on it.

I don’t know where I’m going with the rest of this toot but the destination is this:
1. There is not enough to go around
2. Australia is an authoritarian piece of shit

@Secftblgirl Smoking is all about triggers. After meal, after sex, once home, one in car, etc. Start fucking with those triggers now. One day wait 10 min after a triggering event occurs, the next day maybe 20 min, and so on. By 10/1 it should be easier to drop them as your trigger events won’t be as drastic. Quitting is only hard if deep down you really don’t want to.
Good luck.

"To teach children about the banking system, a U.S. primary school walked its students to a local bank where each opened a savings account into which each deposited $5. Implicit in this activity is the message that the bank is trustworthy. Another bank then acquired that bank and charged all low balance accountholders a monthly maintenance fee that wiped out the children’s savings. The children may have learned a more important lesson about the financial sector than the school intended."


@DarthCoin @Letter6173 iirc the dr who developed these tests was telling everyone they were faulty. Then he died.
