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 hadtulip 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.
You know what annoys me? Tourists clogging up my city and getting in my way. People like to stand in the middle of the sidewalk with blank stares and gaping mouths while looking up at buildings and taking 4,321 pictures or people who are walking turtle speed staring into a map. I have places to go and things to do – you’re in my way.
So this is a few weeks old, this news – I saw it on the internets somewhere. Being in NY yesterday, people who were slow annoyed me, so I thought I’d put this up. But it’s brilliant – divide the sidewalk into people who stand around and walk slowly, and real people who have somewhere to go. Anyone ignoring this should be ticketed, or even tased (is that even a word? tased? Tasered? Whatever, you get the point.)
I never use the word retarded. It is plain offensive. I would never use it to describe anyone with an intellectual disability. But in this case, BP is fucking retarded.
So Top Kill failed to plug this oil well. I decided to do a little research on the actual procedure and found this on Wikipedia:
BP tried to shut down the well completely using a technique called “top kill”. The process involves pumping heavy drilling fluids through two 3-inch (7.6 cm) lines into the blowout preventer that sits on top of the wellhead.
Please explain to me how pumping heavy mud and concrete through two 3-inch pipes would be enough to stop a well that is leaking 5,000 barrels (210,000 US gal) per day. No wonder it failed. The blowout preventor didn’t even work anyway, so you’re going to pump mud through it? Common sense here folks… I could have a three year old tell you that wouldn’t work.
The world will end by 2012 guaranteed. So start looting, doing whatever you want whenever you want and living it up. Enjoy.
…And if it keeps accelerating, you are either a stupid moron that should not be allowed to drive, or you are scamming the company and trying to fake a lawsuit.
Toyota claimed that the sudden acceleration incident on a San Diego highway was a hoax and the car was functioning normally.
“Toyota revealed its preliminary official findings after investigating the incident and the car, coming to the conclusion tha the accelerator pedal was functioning normally, the front brakes showed severe wear and damage from overheating, the floormat in the car was the correct type but was not installed properly, the push-button start/stop switch worked properly, and that the shift lever also easily engaged neutral, as well as other factors that indicated nothing was at fault mechanically with the Prius involved.” –The Car Connection
Of course there is nothing wrong with the accelerator. Duh! Second of all, this moron was on the phone with 911, and the operator repeatedly told the idiot to put the car in neutral or shut it off. It is so clear this man blatantly ignored it and this was all just a huge lawsuit attempt and publicity stunt. Portfolioso.com judgment in favor of Toyota.
