General Discussion / Re: BitCoin Master Thread
« on: January 18, 2018, 11:01:03 AM »
Personally, I can't wait to send money to China using crypto, I will do it the day my supplier accepts it.
We spend $80 ($40 for each side) to wire money, I have to fill out endless forms and make sure I didn't make any mistakes, and it takes 2 days to arrive. I don't think that use will happen for me anytime soon but when it does, it will have loads of value to me.
But doesn't the volatility make you nervous? Wouldn't you also need the market to stabilize before actually USING this product? $80 fee is nothing compared to a $1000 drop in the value of a bitcoin. And it's another reason they may not want to accept it just yet. No?

My stupid views on crypto:
1. Block chain tech behind bitcoin is fascinating and maybe there are some cool uses to come.
2. Cryptocurrency is a cool idea that makes sense and maybe it'll take off, but I'm not sure because currency needs regulation
3. As far as investing in it now, I always stick to index funds and always think long haul so this is something I would never consider. But even if you don't always do that, you gotta admit the bull market is kicking butt right so maybe just be conservative and ride this wave a little while vs gambling on such a highly volatile dice roll. But specific to crypto that I can't get passed is this crazy rise (before this crazy crash) has been due to people investing rather than purchasing for use. So like anything else, when people only buy because others are buying and it's going up, that's a problem that leads to a bubble and we are seeing it burst. In fact, the insane volatility probably keeps true users away. For example who would want to buy bitcoin to use on newegg or overstock in a few days, if they may need double the bitcoin by the time they need it because of this volatility? Anytime people just invest because others are investing and nothing to do with the valuation of the underlying security, you should run, imo.

How does this work?

He hasnt even started his case. His first appearance was this week. Someone was suggesting 25 years. He is a kid from a frum family who got mixed up with the wrong crowd and ended up on drugs. So was it him or the drugs? First run in with the law. How can you justify 25 years? Someone just threw out that number. Thats playing fast and loose with peoples lives as if a number means nothing.
You're making some interesting, provocative points in this thread, but why are you doing everything possible to avoid answering these questions with actual numbers? If you can't provide an alternative then your criticism of others saying 25 years is too much, and judges are going to hell etc fall very weak.

Great thread. I just want my kids* to be happy. As a disclaimer I don't have kids yet. I need to think more about the first part.

BTW I only used the term brainwashing in reference to scientologists who believe they are in the hole voluntarily. Not to include anyone who ever makes any decision with outside influence ever.

so if someone feels like eating kosher is the only way of life for himself and would never entertain not eating kosher that's a result of brainwashing as opposed to education? How about smoking?
So this back and forth started with women shaving their heads and CM/Dan referring to this as forced and I agreed with that. As Dan mentioned, if a school won't accept your kids unless you do x, that is basically forcing them to do X. Likewise, if you will ostracize someone for not doing something from the community, you are forcing them to live a certain lifestyle.
I'm not talking about someone shaving their head because it's what they want to do for themselves. Or eat kosher or smoke. In that case they are making a lifestyle choice without considering the opinions of others.
I'm saying there are societal influences you can't ignore. Once other people's opinions affect your choices, you aren't operating at 100% free will.
Maybe brainwash is the wrong word.
If we label and ostracize people who don't act a certain way, we are collectively influencing them to act how we want.

Without going into a discussion of whether this is fact or not, our generation is accustomed to quick easy solutions.

For example, how many people do you know that were diagnosed with pre-diabetes or actual type 2 diabetes that will take the effort to make life changes, rather than just use pills?

Marriage requires work!

and despite
If indeed the parents put in sincere work and effort, even if not always a peaceful household, it is better than divorced parents.
Work, what's that grandpa. Signed, millennial

SO all societal values are the result of "brainwashing"?
If you internalize it to the point where you don't feel like you have a "choice" but to live a certain way then yes, to some extent...
