    Therefore, you also understand how rare that ability is, since you often find yourself face-palming at the many absurdities that people believe about email. Obviously, some people understand email. But the vast majority don't, and they don't need to. Those of us who do understand email also understand the many dastardly ways that the Fedgod snoops on people through their buddies at Gmail, Outlook, etc. The solution is not to destroy the email protocol, the solution is to stop the Federal government from blatantly breaking the law and violating the Constitution which is the only means by which it has authority in the first place. I hope the analogy to Bitcoin is clear. The problem is not the technology which, if properly built, is just a tool. The problem is the crooks in government and their lackies in the private sector. In the year 2140, mining of new Bitcoins will cease. Mining itself will go on, but what they will be mining for is transaction fees only, not the "block subsidy" which is what we're usually talking about when we speak of mining. I am pointing this out in order to make it clear that mining is not fundamentally about the block subsidy, of which more than 90% has already been mined (the remaining 10% will be mined between now and 2140). Mining can be thought of as a "decentralized lottery". Imagine you have 10 dice. Mining would be like saying to a group of people, "each of you, roll all 10 of your dice until you roll 7 or more 1's; the first one to roll 7 1's wins this round." We can make mining harder by saying, "roll all 10 dice until you roll 8 or more 1's" or easier by reducing the threshold. That explanation is notional... it just explains the goal of mining, not the means.

    "came out of the temple in heaven" seems to imply this angel is holy, but it doesn't specify that. Perhaps it was driven out and became fallen. Just a thought...

    That was hilarious! What a great bit. Comedy is acid wash for tyranny. Tyrants have always hated comedy, and they always will.... the emperor, truly, has no clothes...

    Remember that time that people tried to donate to Canadian truckers protesting globalist tyranny and the government switched off their bank accounts completely and then people were saying "we need a way to transfer money without having to go through the banking system"? That was pretty weird. Sometimes, it almost seems like the people who designed Bitcoin thought about that ahead of time. Spooky. Oh wait, no, a 100% voluntary crypto is obviously just a Ponzi scheme and CBDCs and other shitcoins are the future. Bill Gates and Warren Buffett told me so!

    Naw. The same crew of globalist oompa-loompas that brought you the "Global Warming" and "carbon credits" scam are the ones pumping this narrative that "Bitcoin is not energy-sustainable!" Bitcoin exists because of the Fed and the globalist takeover of the banking industry. It might even have come into being without that impetus, but it's far and away the primary driving impetus. The amount of resources that people are willing to divert to maintaining the Bitcoin ledger shows just how much real demand there is for an alternative to the globalist's funny-money banking con-game. There is nothing inherently unsustainable in Bitcoin itself. It's the globalist counterfeiters who are driving the demand for any alternative into the stratosphere. Not what I said, and also incorrect. While the Bitcoin core client developers and others working on developing the Bitcoin protocol have a lot of influence in that community, they are a far cry from a "centralized committee" and do not "determine the future of the project". The nodes are run by people like you and me and it is the nodes -- not miners, not Bitcoin-client developers -- who have the final say in what Bitcoin is. The upgrade from non-segwit to segwit blocks, for example, took several years. I'm not sure if it's 100% yet. This slow transition shows just how conservative the Bitcoin network really is -- even relatively minor changes with big performance benefits are integrated only very slowly as network participants upgrade their clients and transition their configuration settings to the updated protocol. Nobody can put a gun to their head and force them to move. If they so choose, they can just refuse to budge off the current protocol and it would become un-changeable. It's up to the nodes, and the nodes are just regular people. Even the miners cannot shift the network. The miners determine the next block in the blockchain within the current protocol, but it is the nodes who hold the "voting-power" of determining what the Bitcoin protocol will be. And numbers don't matter, either. You can swamp the network with nodes and run non-compatible protocol on them, but then you're just another Bitcoin Cash... you cannot change the protocol being run on the core nodes. They just go on doing business as they were, and ignore you.

    Yeah, virality is definitely a weird phenomenon. But if it wasn't this photo, it would have been some other. So, there will always be the question, "why THIS one?"

    Ethereum doesn't need to use mining in order to operate. My (possibly flawed) understanding is that Ethereum does have a mining fallback mechanism. But the trouble with Ethereum is that it's way too complicated. I have no doubt that Vitalik Buterin has worked out all the corner-cases in the Ethereum protocol but it's a situation where he may be the only person who truly understands how it all works. For some weird reason I can't explain, I don't think that Buterin is a scammer... I'd trust him ahead of many people out there on the public stage. But the fact is that, practically speaking, Ethereum requires me to trust Buterin; Bitcoin does not require me to trust anyone as long as I can understand the moderately complex, but manageable, Bitcoin protocol. Ethereum may not use mining, but it has exchanged away mining for an enormous amount of protocol-complexity, way more than I can manage and I am well above the population-average in terms of technical/mathematical competency.
