    When I get thinking I want to do some creative music project, I always gravitate towards making some old-school techno. That song could be made with a keyboard with synth tones, a drum machine and a tb-303, then add the talking audio samples over top later. I've seen some videos of people online using basic analog TB-303 and drum machine setups, makes me jealous. But they've got some great options now for apps on your phone to do this stuff as well. So if you have a smart phone and a tablet, could easily run all this through an audio mixer into some real amps and have a basic techno dj setup.

    I'll tell you something. I like pretty much everyone here. A few times I've got on the bad side of some people. And sometimes some people get on my bad side. And, of course, a woman scorned, never forgets, no matter what. That's something else, though. End of the day, though, if any of em needed something, I'd be right there offering if they asked. Now. Heh. That said, you have to be careful when asking 'libertarians' about libertarianism. A lot of people have some libertarian tendencies but not all of them are truly libertarian. Most are libertines. The younger ones anyway. Then you have the monarchists and whatnot. And mercantilists. And about a dozen other isms going on, all with their own tailored perception of libertarian.

    You can't do evil and expect God to bless you. Of course, he doesn't really mean it. Just more virtue signaling. A true man of God sitting in the White House would ask God to forgive the sins this country has committed and lead the people to repent and do the same for themselves.

    Something doesn't arise from nothing. Nothing and something arise from Emptiness. This is eastern thought 101. Emptiness is the primordial quality, not nothing. Emptiness implies being completely empty of even the thought of emptiness and of not-emptiness. A Kyoto school philosopher called this "Absolute Nothingness". Because absolute nothingness pervades the underlying reality of everything it implies an inherent one-ness at the source.

    Yes, that's exactly what you do. You "consider it earmarked" and you broadcast that fact to the network. I haven't quite figured out how metric will exist legally, but essentially you are contracting with your peers that any money you enter as "reserves" is part of the network. Now of course if you enter $103.14 as you have, well, that's also your balance. You haven't transferred any either, so you are a zero. You are holding as much in reserves as your balance is. If you spent your balance your reserve doesn't change. Example: Say you connected to me and thus were on the network and could make payments. Currently you have $103.14 in reserve and the other two people have $5. If you then buy a $100 worth of website consulation services from me, then my network balance would be $105, and yours would be $3.14. But my reserve balance is still $5 and yours is still $103.14. If you then leave the network without transferring those reserves, well then I made a mistake connecting to you as you just defrauded not only me, but anyone I've subsequently made payments to. But the "money", the network balance (rather than reserve balance) will fly around the network. Hence, everyone keeping average. Tomorrow I might pay you $100 for some gold thingies. Just like a bank deposit, a reserve deposit increases your balance. Once connected you can spend that balance with the "pay $X" command on another users account.

    The First Miracle After the Lord's Resurrection - Entering a Room With Shut Doors By St. Cyril of Alexandria (Commentary on the Gospel of John) John 20:19, 20 - When therefore it was evening, on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said unto them, "Peace be unto you." And when He had said this, He showed unto them His hands and His side. On the selfsame day on which He had appeared unto Mary, and discoursed with her, He also showed Himself to the holy disciples, who dreaded the intolerable attacks of the impious Jews, and were, on that account, collected together in a certain house. For it was not likely that they who had been so instructed, and had often been bidden to make haste to escape from the wrath of their would-be murderers, would be found lacking in proper prudence. Christ miraculously appears unto them. For while the doors were shut, as the Apostle says, Christ unexpectedly stood in the midst, by His ineffable Divine power rising superior to the chain of cause and effect, and showing Himself able to dispense with the design and method appropriate to His action. For let no man say, "How did the Lord, Whose body was of solid flesh, enter without let or hindrance, though the doors were shut?" but rather let him reflect that the Evangelist is not here speaking of one of ourselves, but rather of Him Who is enthroned by the side of God the Father, and Who easily does whatsoever He will. For He that was by nature the true God, was of necessity not subject unto the sequences of cause and effect, as are the creatures that owe their being to Him; but rather does He exercise Lordship over necessity itself, and due and appropriate methods of performance. For how did He make the sea afford a footing unto His Feet, and walk thereon as upon dry land, though we are not so framed that we can tread upon the paths of the sea? And how did He perform the rest of His marvelous works with God-like power? All these things, you will say, surpass man's understanding. Put this miracle of Christ side by side with the rest, and do not, following the opinion of certain men, who, in the folly of their hearts, have been led astray to judge falsely, imagine on account of this very occurrence that Christ rose again without His human Body, wholly bereft thereof, and severed from the Temple that He had taken on Himself. For if you cannot understand the working of God's ineffable nature, why do you not rather cry out against the infirmity of man's reason -- for that would be the wiser course -- and then silently acquiesce in the limit prescribed to you by the Creator? For in rejecting the conclusion of wisdom, you do wrong to the great mystery of the Resurrection, on which all our reliance is fixed. For remember the exclamation of Paul: "If the dead are not raised, neither has Christ been raised; and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is vain, and you are yet in your sins." And again: "Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we witnessed of God that He raised up Christ, Whom He raised not up, if so be that the dead are not raised." For what can be raised up save that which is fallen? Or what restored to life, save that which is bowed down in death? And how shall we expect to rise again, if so be that Christ raised not up His own Temple, making Himself, for us, the First-fruits of them which are asleep, and the First-born from the dead? Or how shall this mortal put on immortality, if, as some think, it be lost in total annihilation? For how shall it escape this fate if it have no hope of a new life? Do not, then, swerve from orthodoxy in the faith, because a miracle was accomplished; but rather be wise, and add this to the other marvelous works that Christ did.

    What you need to understand about metric is the reserves are MEANT to move like molasses. Because that is the "real money" so to speak. Your reserve balance is what you physically have. The "network balance" is what the system owes you. What you have the right to withdraw in reserves. For instance if I have $100 balance, but the average balance is $20, that means everyone is holding $20 in reserve. It would take me perhaps 5 days to withdraw that unless I called in favors from connections. But it would take everyone else the same amount of time too. But what if it disnintegrates! What if other nodes steal the money! All I can say to these types of charges is I've been thinking about this model for a good 8 years. Economically it works. I think. Or at least, I haven't seen or learned anything that says it isn't an alternative that can solve the problems with current banking. It is very non-intuitive. But so are lots of other ideas. The fact that everything moves slow means you will know before you ever put $100 how it works and moves, and how sound it is. Of course no one will see that until the user base gets a little further than 3. :) If someone said I'll sell you my bitcoin for $500 in 2012 they would have laughed at you. Now they would still laugh at you but for the opposite reason.

    It is a banking system. Specifically, it is a multi-currency banking system. Each network represents a different currency. It is not "production" ready, not even sure if it's legal, but it can be used in its current form. In other words, I'm still looking for bugs, and changing things but it does actually work in its current form. Probably in the future I'll write something to where anyone can create a network, but right now it's admin only. I could always create one for someone if they ask. Currently there are two networks. One that's for federal reserve notes called "just_dollars" and one to represent bitcoin called "just_bitcoin". Currently "just_dollars" has three members. wizardwatson (me), poopeater69 (an old friend of mine), and helmuth_hubener. Currently only me and poopeater69 are connected. Therefore, we can pay each other because there is a path of connections between us. If you were connected to me you could pay me or poopeater69.

    If you want to actually operate a physical ATM or physical bank as a service, then certainly you would need extra cash or gold or whatever currency to give to your customers. You could charge a small fee for large withdrawals. But this is outside the scope of what metric is designed for (currently anyway). Personally, I think there's a dangerous amount of liquidity in circulation. "Fear of deflation" is used to justify insane paper money injections that are responsible for 10's of trillions in derivatives bubbles. metric itself I see as a counter-force to this, but certainly if there's a market for big cash withdrawals, there's nothing wrong with a metric user hoarding cash to service that market. But in my opinion, incorporating that behavior (uneven reserve holdings to accomodate certain markets) into the protocol of metric would go against the grain of its intent.

    Who really gives two turds about who is lying to us more or less. There's plenty of information to know we shouldn't trust things without verification. My only point is why isn't this standard being applied to Trump support? Where's the verification there? All the verification for Trumps legitimacy came from "Oh, look how much the media hates him! He must be our guy!" And who was the main proponent of this meme? Trump himself. It was a sham. He's a douchebag. Move on. Or don't. All most online people do anyway is do "activism" like sports fans do fantasy football.
