Does anyone have experience mining bitcoin?
I'm in university housing, so I have free electricity, so I was thinking I might as well mine some bitcoin.
I was wondering what the best miner is if we're not considering electricity cost.

Ah, man, I have to invest at least one bitcoin.
Super lame!
I'm not sure I want to invest that much.

That's an interesting policy decsion. Despite what they say it can only have been because the US market represented a significant risk; only losses motivate investors to make such choices. If the US bitcoin investment market is toxic, the rest of the first world follows.

Maybe they're gambling that the wild-west third-world investment market will sustain profitability while the rest of the world marginalizes bitcoin.

I agree that people should face the consequences of their actions but I must admit I feel kind of sorry for those who didn't want to leave the EU and are now forced to watch their ship sink.
Then again, I have a feeling if all of those had actually voted there would be no brexit at all so for some of them at least it's their own fault. It's just those few that did vote to stay that are getting airwolfed through no fault of their own.

Novice Equestrian 16/08/23(Tue)22:53 No. 756820

So glad the UK is getting the hell out of the EU. Bully for them! I may go over and visit again soon. I'm glad some of those chaps had a spine. It was just pulling them under with the sinking ship.

Sazpaimon 16/08/24(Wed)00:49 No. 756821

To be honest, they only have themselves to blame. If they had voted, if they had convinced other like-minded people to vote, then they wouldn't suffer the tyranny of the bigoted minority.

I've head that Russian has a ton of great words that are next to impossible to translate, if you're into sci-fi literature.

I'm not into sci-fi literature and don't speak Russian, so I can't verify that.

tee 16/08/23(Tue)20:25 No. 756817

That's from the same properties of the Russian language that allows you to fill an entire dictionary with inflections of and compounds containing the word for dick (ั…ัƒะน).

I hereby announce my candidacy for the President of the United States.

My platform will be based on ideas from this board, 7chan/b, and not else. I intend to use my own judgement in selecting the most progressive ideas to put forward as bills to Congress. I'm not asking for your support, or for your requests. I intend to get ideas from all threads equally, though you may post whatever you like in this one.

I give you my word that all ideas will be considered, but not necessarily replied to or implemented.

I don't think you really understand the justice system.
Civil crimes are not punishable by such punishment.

4chan user 16/08/23(Tue)01:35 No. 756790

I'm hoping adjustments can be made.

Liru Fanboy 16/08/23(Tue)07:15 No. 756802

In our current system, that which isn't an acceptable punishment in civil court gets heavily meted out by the court of public opinion. This is especially true with a public that prefers virtue signalling over virtues.

Codifying those very punishments into legal procedure looks like an attempt to be a modern-day Hammurabi.

In the real world you have to actually physically intimidate someone to steal their wallet.

In buttcoin future fantasy land, random people on the internet will empty your wallet from halfway across the planet.

The unwashed sweaty neckbeards think they'll be the ones stealing the funds, though deep down in their hearts they know they're going to be the marks.

How does the issue of abortion relate to my values?
What values would a pro life stance promote, and what values would a pro choice stance promote?
How do these compare with my own values?
Why do I hold my values?
Why do you hold yours?
Why are they different?
That's essentially the question I try to answer with any issue, but it's a hard question to answer.
But it's kinda the question that needs to be answered in order to come to any real sort of understanding about an issue, isn't it?
In before direct pro life or pro choice arguments.
I didn't ask for arguments, I asked how it relates to values.

Yes, but less so, because an infant can be adopted, but a fetus can't.

We live in a time when gay male couples can legally hire a surrogate mother to have their children.

Give it a little time.

Someone cut in front of me at Subway today.

At Subway...

Details follow:

When I stepped up to the counter, there was only one employee out and she was ringing up another customer's order at the register. I waited by the bread section for a moment until another employee came out and asked for my order. Around that time I noticed a lady standing several feet from the counter considering the menu.

So there I was, ordering a sandwich, when the lady stepped into line behind me. Moments later, she shoves past me and makes an order at the register. Her facial expression was as if this were the normal thing to do and what I was doing puzzled her.

I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and say that's very likely what happened in her mind, although I wouldn't discount that her rudeness indicates she thought I was causing some kind of problem and wasting her time. I believe so because she is Japanese, and this Subway is in Japan. It isn't the first time I have observed that Subway faces very serious challenges in marketing to the Japanese.

The sandwich-shop paragadim is foriegn to them in every sense of the word, and I am not sure it can ever fully integrate with Japan's fast-food culture.

First of all, there's a taboo against custom ordering western food. No one ever asks for a cheeseburger without pickles or with extra anything in Japan; Subway confronts them with making a series of uncomfortable, and--from their point of view--unnecessary decisons.

Is it true that Japanese girls prefer to date white boys over Japanese boys, and if so, has it been studied?

I would find such a conversation about cultural comparison very interesting, but it might be limited by limited knowledge of some aspects of my own culture.

Lorf 16/08/11(Thu)10:48 No. 756361

As far as I know there has been no formal study, but yes it appears to be true. This was proven before my eyes as a university student, when approximately 200 Japanese students entered came to study at our school. The group was more or less half boys and half girls. Every single girl got an american boyfriend within a few weeks--or began a seires of random hookups with american boys. Meanwhile none of the Japanese boys had any female companions. It was very sad, and shameful for their nationalistic pride. Those guys were really miserable, but they only had themselves to blame in my opinion. They brought thier mysogynistic and racist attitudes with them along with an airwolfton of shyness, making it as impossible for them to meet american girls as it was to get the japanese girls back from their superior american penii.

Moreover, in Japan you will hear Japanese people go on and on about how lucky white people are to be white (there are a plethora of skin whitening beauty products), have "high" noses (the presence of a bridge is called "high nose" and something asians get plastic surgery for) and big, round eyes (again, they get plastic surgery to emulate this).

Conductor Cat 16/08/22(Mon)17:14 No. 756776

That's odd that there should be no such study, considering how many academics study racism.
