    I mostly watch ballgames and old movies on tee vee, but see these ads for current TV shows and new movies that seem to play up the dysfunction angle. How many ads do you see where characters break out of America's ordered and safety mode, only to become bad ass want-to-be cynics? Is that a sign of the times, or has dysfunction always been funny? Women and women parents aren't always portrayed in the best light either. And I don't see all these media portrayals as being totally monolithic in a shift. The Honeymooners is, arguably, the best comedy of all-time, but Ralph and Ed often played dunderheads to their more apparently sensible wives. Homer Simpson is a dunce compared to Marge, but I used to ROTFL the first few years of that show. Archie Bunker was often portrayed as weak and foolish, but liberal Norman Lear made sure liberal character Meathead got his share of jabs. Maybe those are exceptions, or it's not a total tidal wave?

    I think this is a thoughtful post, especially the last line as a springboard. There is obviously structural change over the past few decades, but how much of this is just men and women arguing age-old things because of biological differences?

    This 2007 CBS story starts off that way and points exactly to the shows you mention; however, they seem to play it off in the end. The 10 minute clip is probably long for a discussion forum, but I think you will be interested. This guy's Youtube comment in part II of the video makes some good points:

    I listened to the NC State-Syracuse game on the radio the other night. Wolfpack almost folded when Boeheim switched from their zone to a more frenetic style. This time though, NC State handled it and went on to win. As it stands now, they might have enough signature wins to get in. Probably could use one or two more good wins though.

    Yeah, chess is one of those games they dub Easy to learn, but hard to master. I don't play much either. It's just too many variables, so it's like work to me. My wife can take me out in a minimum number of moves. It's funny though, because she doesn't like this really old game called Broadside. I find Broadside style slightly similar to chess, but she swears she does not understand the game. I like Upwords (Scrabble) because you think, but you can exhaust the variables much easier. I still lose 3 of 4 games, but find it more enjoyable. Mastermind is a thinking game that'll make you go "Damn!" when your losing ass can't figure it out. Ever play TiGo? It's a version of the old Chinese game called Go. It's similar to Broadside in that each side has different pieces, and therefore, different strengths. It's 4 tigers versus 20 goats. The object for the tigers is to jump all 20 goats. The object for the goats is to surround all 4 tigers. Different from chess in that sense. Okay, so I sort a got off track, but there's some trivia in these old nostalgia games. Plus, it relates to the thread in the my mother-in-law is going to live with us.:eek: She has a visa from half way around the world. She doesn't speak much English, so these games actually give me an idea for an activity.

Until the court decrees it to the queen.

    Ha ha; good deliveries on live TV without missing a beat: Jane Curtin: Dan, times change and so does the nature of relationships. People are reluctant to get married these days and looking at divorce statistics, who can blame them. But the lack of a piece of paper does not neccessarily mean a lack of a total commitment. A woman is this modern-day relationship may well give up all her personal pursuits, as Michelle Marvin claims she did, to give her full support to her man's career. And Michelle Marvin is just asking that the courts recognize that reality. Dan, there's an old saying: "Behind every successful man there's a woman." A loving, giving, caring woman. But you wouldn't know about that, Dan, because there's no old saying about what's behind a miserable failure. Dan Aykroyd: Jane, you ignorant slut! Bagged-out, dried-up, slunken meat like you and Michelle Triola know the rules. If you want a contract, sign on the dotted line. Oh, but let's all shed a tear for poor Michelle Triola. There was only testimony that she had sexual intercourse over forty times with another man while living with actor Lee Marvin. But I suppose that sort of fashionable promiscuting means nothing to you, Jane, who hops from bed to bed with the frequency of a cheap ham radio. But hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn, and Michelle Triola, like a screeching, squealing, reptatious swamp sow is after actor Lee Marvin's last three million dollars. I guess what you and Michelle are saying is that when you're on your backs, the meter is running. Well, please spare us, gals, and tell us the rate's at the top. Then we can choose which two bit tarts and bargain basement sluts to shack up with. Jane Curtin: That's the news. Good night, and have a pleasant tomorrow.

    There is no need to convert bitcoin to FRNs, unless you want to. You can trade bitcoin directly for goods and services including gold and silver. That is the goal. However, retailers who accept bitcoin generally make rent payments and such in FRNs, so they would need to convert at least some of their BTC to FRNs to cover costs and such.

    Data on computers can be easily copied, thus if you created a digital currency without protections in place you would have a major problem with counterfeiting. The miners help validate the blockchain to ensure that there is no double spending by the people with the coins, so you couldn't say transact $200 to two people at the same time, they think they have your money but it turns out it was just a copy. So you could have a centralized computer like at the bank that keeps track and ensures there is no double spending, but then they control the servers and can erase your funds... So what Satoshi did was create an open source, decentralized ledger that is maintained and verified by thousands of computers all over the world that help track each transaction and ensure there is no fraud. That is essentially what the miners do, by solving these cryptographic puzzles. They get paid in bitcoin, which causes a known, fixed, small amount of inflation. But they can also get paid miner fees that come from transaction fees, as the amount of bitcoin rewarded for solving a block halves every now and then, eventually approaching zero.

    So, although you are saying there will probably be another stock market crash (which you usually say wont happen), you are saying the current money paradigm is just fine and continue forever? And even go so far as to say this benefits the "little people" in the long term? I think your propensity for being pro fiat currency is obvious to nearly everyone, and that shows with your big red bar.

    Of course I do, read what I said again carefully, you misunderstood as there is an either/or here, and then read the next sentence: My point was that a guy who is deceiving a girl into a one night stand is going to look the same as a guy who is convincing a girl to begin a long lasting relationship. If they didn't, then the guy who is having a one night stand would not likely be successful. So no, a romantic relationship would not likely begin with deception, it would begin with a man who are more genuine.. but it's not the PUA who is teaching their clientele to be deceptive or genuine, just how to start things off and get things going. PUAs do not generally train their clientele for either track, that is for the client to decide if they want to have a long term relationship or a one night stand. The reason they are paying is to get to the point where they can make the decision themselves rather than just being alone.

    In the beginning they used graphics cards to solve cryptographic puzzles (essentially guessing a string from a hash, a hash being a portion of the string). They call that hashing. The miner who guesses the correct string gets rewarded bitcoin. Most small miners combine into mining pools so they (the entire pool) has a chance to guess correctly and split the reward accordingly. Mining is what helps verify the transactions on the blockchain (the blockchain is a ledger of all the transactions) so that wallets can read the blockchain and recognize the value that they have in them. Then you can push a transaction onto the blockchain and have it verified by the miners and add to the blockchain. Back then the mining difficulty was low, and you got a lot of bitcoins easily mining on your graphics card. Once more miners came in as the value of bitcoin rose the difficulty increased and eventually they invented specialized processors called ASIC chips and mining bitcoin with a graphics card became obsolete.

    I think what you are doing is separating two things that are integral to each other. Hear me out here cuz I know off the bat you will disagree with this - but attracting a woman for sex vs. a relationship is pretty much the same thing because sex is an integral part of a longterm relationship. Otherwise you are really just friends, and the longer you are friends with a woman rather than romantic partners the more likely it is going to stay that way. A lot of guys who seek advice from PUAs have had many girl friends who have friendzoned them and they are trying to figure out how to take their relationships with women to the physical level SO that they can have a longterm ROMANTIC relationship with them. Sometimes hookups result in one night stands, and sometimes they result in longterm relationships. There is nothing inherently different in the beginning of the process, even if sex is postponed for some length of time due to religious beliefs or otherwise. If there was a difference, girls would pick up on it and avoid the guys who are just manipulating them to have sex, but they don't. That's the whole point of PUA, is to EITHER convince a woman you want a romantic relationship or deceive her. Both of these look the same from the outside and both can be taught by the same practitioner, what changes is what happens after the sex happens and the woman at that point may find out what the man's true intentions were. The other issue is that you never know if the guy who has sex with 20 women is not looking for a relationship at all, or if the women just give away sex to him like crazy so of course he will take it, and then he is just being really picky about who he has longterm relationships with. So it's important not to put guys in the category of "just wanting sex" or "just wanting relationships". I get asked that all the time, I have NEVER in my entire life, EVER been looking for JUST sex OR JUST relationships. It is true that some guys are looking for just one or another, but hard to judge by appearances (and definitely cannot judge them by what they say they are after). It is often said that women are the gatekeepers for sex, and men for relationships. In other words, the woman decides if the guy gets to have sex, and the guy decides if their interactions will develop into a relationship. It's not always the case, but it's a good model to go off of for our purposes, as I get to your next issue:

    Danno thanks for the rep but he didn't get sucked in to the degree that he ignored what was important. Otherwise he would have never gotten arrested.
  3. Yeah. It sucks right now. But at least we both miss each other and he has an intellectually stimulating job. He's just not that responsible with money or investments (aside from BTC), I'll be moving there, hopefully within a month. We aren't breaking up, despite quite a few rocky patches.

    See my 60 minute documentary video for the full story behind the subpoenaed arrest and booking records. It's aired perhaps 50 times along with its sequel, all linked from this page.

    http://algoxy.com/miskno

    Please download CIRCA, rather than streaming the .avi file. The friend that hosts it on that server asked that be done rather than consuming bandwidth there. The 40 minute sequel in 3 parts can be streamed on YouTube.

    Perhaps that will give you an idea of the size and scope of the conspiracy surpressing me and my information.
