Oh I'm so glad to know Bitcoin is as crooked as it is stupid. It reaffirms my larger worldview, especially considering the FEAR the Fed has about it, if my Internets read accurate.

Which is to say, why would anyone be afraid of something so foolish? And obviously flawed? And just...just stupid.

How many things do people fear that have a rational basis for that fear?

That's a good point.

There's about 30 million people shitting themselves in terror because Gay people might get to marry.

WHERE IN THE FUCK IS THE THREAT IN THAT?

Oh, yeah.  To their ideologies.

why, quite a few things, actually.  due to my time on this board, i am quite afraid of your fair city, and feel that it is rationally justified.

Yeah, but do you think the Fed is actually worried about Bit coin more than, say, any other band of nerds with or without guns? The fear is supposed to be for us alone.

It hit me real hard recently, just how deep they give you the fear. And just how deeply it is fabricated.

I didn't say NO fears had a rational basis.

But there's no need to fear Tucson.  It loves you, and it wants you to come and live forever.

well, it's not specifically the city that i fear.  it's just that i have heard tales of  a yeti living there capable of defecating incredible volumes, and has venereal diseases which are so vicious that they wrangle the local ostriches into great herds and ride them rip-shod around town.  and they have a particular penchant for running down anyone from TX that may be in town.

Historically speaking, Tucson goes to Texas when that's necessary.   :lulz:

Sure.  But I mostly get sent to Houston and San Antonio.

Dallas is far too cool for a business trip.

Too hip, when compared to Houston.  Or Westlake, LA.  Or Goddamn Pittsburg.
