If you take out a mortgage to buy Bitcoin, you’re a certified moron and deserve to lose it all

December 12th, 2017 12:01am Comments off

CNBC – Bitcoin is in the “mania” phase, with some people even borrowing money to get in on the action, securities regulator Joseph Borg told CNBC on Monday.  “We’ve seen mortgages being taken out to buy bitcoin. People do credit cards, equity lines,” said Borg, president of the North American Securities Administrators Association, a voluntary organization devoted to investor protection.

Fucking idiots. Doesn’t anyone learn from history? You had tulip mania, the Great Depression and the dot com bubble, just to name a few. Things will always bubble. The bubble will always burst. Markets are cyclical. Some people will get rich with limited effort, but  it’s economically impossible for every single person to jump on the bandwagon and have the value increase forever. It just does not work like that.

Have a few hundred dollars to spare and want to play around, understanding it’s a gamble? By all means, I hope you make a quick buck. But if you buy Bitcoin or some other cryptocurrency with money you don’t even have, you are a certified moron and should just kill yourself. When the price comes down and you can’t pay anything back, then what? You might as well just use it to go on vacation or buy lavish goods, because you’re investing in something that is going to crash hard. It’ll be around forever and eventually stabilize, but you have to wait it out dudes.

American Airlines can go fuck themselves for charging me $75 to check an empty carryon

December 10th, 2017 10:07pm Comments off

Granted, I didn’t read the fine print and this got expensed for business, but FUCK American Airlines and their Basic Economy tickets anyway:

I usually check a full sized suitcase every time I travel for work, but this time I thought I’d save the usual $25 each way and bring a free carryon. WRONG. Apparently, last April, American restructured their flight tiers and anyone who books Basic Economy are not allowed to use the overhead bins. So they made me check my empty carryon at the gate for $25 and tacked on an extra $25 gate check fee for not doing it at the counter before security. So now on the way back, I have to check my small ass carryon for another $25. $75 for a small shit that should be in an overhead bin for free. And you’ll never see me on that piece of shit airline again.

But wait! Basic Economy saves you money because the airfare is cheaper than Main cabin airfare, right? Let’s teach a business school lesson about hidden fees. This is a prime example. I went on their site and picked a random cross country flight:

Yes, Basic Economy is $50 cheaper for the base airfare. But guess what? Now you have to spend $50 on bags! So it’s $561 either way because the Main Cabin tier does not include free checked luggage (it does let you use the overhead bins, but it’s the same thing as getting basic and paying the baggage fees). So FUCK OFF.

Unrelated, the plane was a piece of shit, two by one seat, coffin with wings that looked like it hadn’t been updated since the 90s. I bet the Biebs has a bigger private jet than the piece of shit Embraer RJ145 they used. Justin Bieber’s dick is probably bigger than that shit plane. It was also 90 degrees on there and the whole experience was an F-

So fuck American Airlines and their bitch ass ways/ hidden fees.

 

PS- Their CEO has 3 DUIs. Rich cunt thinks he’s above the law and can do whatever he wants and drive around drunk all the time. God forbid he gets his license taken away, he’ll just pay for a personal driver. Fuck him too. I hope his liver gets cirrhosed.

PPS – this is EXACTLY what Ajit Pai, who has 50 Verizon cocks all over his face, will do to the internet when he kills Net Neutrality on Thursday. Because I can picture those Comcast/Verzion/Spectrum/Charter motherfuckers pulling the same shit.

Everything is so fucked.

I Hope This Flat Earther’s Homemade Rocket Crashes

November 22nd, 2017 11:21am Comments off

space.com – A flat-Earth enthusiast who claims not to believe in science plans to launch himself 1,800 feet (550 meters) above California’s Mojave Desert in a homemade steam rocket on Saturday (Nov. 25), the Associated Press reported.

“I don’t believe in science,” Hughes said, according to the AP. “I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the air, about the certain size of rocket nozzles, and thrust. But that’s not science, that’s just a formula. There’s no difference between science and science fiction.”

Nothing would make me happier than to see this guy’s rocket crash. It’s 2017. Even the Catholic church believes the world is round. I mean it only took them 350 years to get it right in 1992. We can’t have these flat-Earther nutjobs running around spreading lies. Before you know it, we’ll have Trump signing executive orders on the subject. Make Earth flat again!

And what’s this noise that he doesn’t believe in science? He understands aerodynamics, fluid dynamics and things moving through the air? Uhhh, that sounds like physics to me. Last time I checked, physics and how things move through air is science. Air. Our atmosphere. Not science? Moron. This is why we need natural selection to kill these people off.

Any flat-earther deserves the Dolores Umbridge “I must not tell lies” punishment that gets carved into their hands:
