    KDave reacted to sixgun in U.S. Elections   
    i only discovered this meme when i saw this thread and i immediately latched onto it. It reflects exactly what i see in the Leftist zombie mob. They are so heavily programmed they are NPC's without freewill. They are programmed not to think so they can operate under Double Think. Indeed it would be better to say they operate under Multi Think. They can effortless hold multiple thoughts which are completely contradictory (1984 style) b/c they do not think. Information is downloaded into separate disconnected memory stores which are retrieve at the spinal reflex level. i have seen some of these zombies confronted and all they can do is regurgitate the same old same old lines. This programmed response is increasingly failing and the NPC meme will accelerate the process which is why it is so dangerous to the Left. Now people have a versatile weapon to fire back with instead of apologising and running away.
    i saw a video where the maker was suggesting we are all NPC's reacting to various stimuli, it is just the SJW NPC's have a limited repertoire of responses which are externally sourced rather than internally generated from experience and logical reflection. i have previously posted about the reincarnation cycle where we die and then are reborn again...and again. i have also posted about us being a soul that animates an avatar and that some people appear almost souless, the light has gone out. i notice mentioned that the NPC's are souless. That the most vital component of the NPC is the lack of soul. That perhaps they are packing characters, there to just make up the numbers; background extras with no more than a few lines of dialogue as NPC's in the video games.
    For anyone who has considered and explored the idea that this is a holographic universe which is created from our own consciousness, it has been suggested that perhaps some of the characters we see in this video game, we experience called life, are they actual NPC's. They are just there to provide colour and movement.
    You can take the NPC meme very deep if you are that way out. And you can laugh yourself silly b/c it is so funny and so true. Praise Kek, long live NPC.

    The NPC meme is incredible, a true piece of comedic genius. It is just - truth.  
    It has so many facets to it. I have learned that quite a lot of people genuinely do not have an inner monologue, they do not think in words - another source of amusement. I assume most lefties are like that. I guess that must be like how a cat lives its life. One instinct to the next?

    KDave reacted to Kman in Flipping trainers/sneakers   
    I've got really interested in trainers/sneakers lately
    The other month I wanted to find the most comfortable everyday trainer to buy which got me watching a lot of youtube videos about shoes, which made me interested in the technology and design side, then I learned more about the collectible side
    For instance, Adidas have a new technology called 4d where they use light and oxygen to sculpt a liquid to make a comfortable/bouncy performance sole
     
    They collaborated with Daniel Arsham (a contemporary New York artist) and made this trainer which released on the 12th of this month in limited numbers
     

     
    It was sold by Adidas for £399.99 which is a lot, but it's already instantly reselling for £1k
    Nike released a trainer yesterday called Air Max 97 "the ten" Menta which is a collab with Off White (artsy street fashion label) for £159.95, already selling for £500-600

     
    Two shoes mentioned are limited quantities which is obviously making the resale price
    Both shoes got released at 9am on their launch days, Adidas you get put in a queue and have to be lucky to be put through to buy (but you can have 20 different chrome users in the queue) and Nike you had to enter a raffle between 9-9:30 and again had to be lucky
    There's been quite a lot of money making opportunities with reselling since I've got interested, the two examples I've used are just the most recent and are both from the past week
    If you enjoy learning about the topic and keeping up to date with releases, then it's super obvious what shoes are going to have a high resell value and you should try and get
    How big the "sneaker" community is makes you appreciate how small the precious metals community is 
    I'm finding it a lot of fun

    Easier than it is now, if there was the will and some campaign, there could be an argument to exempt VAT on silver coins.  Right now we cannot because of EU rules.  No one want to consider this option.

    KDave reacted to Lowlow in Crypto currencies, meh   
    I'm meh for most of the crypto currencies out there, and here's why ...
    To me, the push for people to get involved in crypto currencies is a mixture of a lot of different concepts, motivations, etc, into one giant orgasmic event and a lot is getting lost in the discussion.
    Crypto currencies themselves are nothing more than a system of transferring value between computers.  They have a lot of technological advantages, the ability to be distributed (decentralized), anonymous, etc, and these are systems that we have needed (and people have been working on) for a long time, well before bitcoin and block-chain became a thing.  I remember discussion about this as far back as the late 1980's.
    That said .. it is JUST a system of transferring value, and even more generally "uniqueness" from computer to computer (or maybe it's better to say keeping a decentralized database), and that's all it is.
    In addition to that there are a lot of OTHER things that are getting mixed into it .. everything from beliefs about politics, to what types of value are going to be transferred, how the rules will work, how tokens will be traded, there's a LOT going on in these discussions, and a lot of it is being mixed up into larger concepts and I really think that's where the problem is.
    Crypto currencies are TOKENS.  And those tokens can be made by anybody, and there will no doubt be advancements in the future that will make the current systems obsolete.
    But the issue in my mind is that in the rush to embrace this new technology, people are ignoring a lot of serious issues.  To use an analogy, it's like back in the day when the telephone was first invented, no doubt there were financial institutions and others who used the fact that they could do transactions via telephone as a marketing gimmick, taking advantage of the fact that telephones were a new gee-whiz technology that was fascinating the public, but ... they were still financial institutions, with financial products, and the fact that transfers were taking place over the telephone instead of in person or by mail was interesting, but it didn't change the underlying fundamentals of the financial products they were selling.  If they were low value products before the telephone, they weren't any better after.  Also, over time, the fact that the telephone was being used became less interesting as the technology was adopted by more businesses, and eventually everybody had it.
    I'm old enough to remember when this happened with the Internet too, when people were setting up the first stores on the Internet, there was a time when that was brand new and early adopters were out there trying to make a name for themselves, but once the Internet became widely adopted the newness of it wore off and, in the end, it was basically the same businesses you were doing business with before, but now you could make orders on the computer by looking at their catalog online instead of calling them to get a printed catalog and calling them on the telephone to place orders, which is they way it was done when I was growing up.  I remember when I was a child sitting and reading through the JC Penny and Sears catalogs looking for what I wanted to put on my list for Santa, and the Internet, though convenient, is really just a kind of optimization of that process ... but toys are still toys, and clothes are clothes, and it isn't like the companies suddenly became more financially viable just because of the Internet - a number or very high profile business failures in 2008 and 2009 should be proof enough of that.
    So my issue is that, yes, these tokens systems are going to change the way people do business, eventually even YOU may be minting your own tokens, maybe as coupons to purchase things at a discount at your business, or maybe there will be a new kind of checking account at your bank that allows you to make tokens that can be drawn against your account.  But at this moment, there are only a few financial institutions and technology firms minting the tokens, and it's in a very gee-whiz kind of phase ... but that has NOTHING to do with whether the underlying fundamentals of the businesses who are minting these tokens are sound, or that they are even going to be around 10 years from now.
    And, yes, I understand that bitcoin isn't backed by any financial institution or specific person, and that it is essentially tokens created out of thin air that everyone is going to agree have value ... but you know what ?  That sounds a LOT like something we in silver and gold complain about all the time.  I don't understand why I should be super excited about a fiat currency that isn't just minted out of thin air by a government ... but now minted out of thin air by absolutely NOBODY lol.
    Related, bitcoin and others in the future have mechanisms built in to stop inflation, but only within their own currency.  There's NOTHING to stop people from making COMPETING currency and inflating the entire range of currencies available, and we're already seeing that.  What does it matter if bitcoin can be inflated if there can be 1000 competing currencies to bitcoin ?  I'm amazed, honestly, that some of these currencies have retained value for as long as they can with the fast speed with which new currencies are coming online, how many new currencies were created just in the last year ?  How many new ones will be around 5 years from now, 10 years ?  Ultimately, as I said above, I would expect that EVERYONE would have the opportunity to create their own tokens ... so you might be creating tokens that can be redeemed for a cup of lemonade at your corner lemonade stand, so what will make bitcoin interesting after that ?  It's a currency, not a religious experience.
    I kind of wonder if this was what it was like when the printing press was first created, suddenly some important authors could create multiple copies of important works and everyone was amazed, now your family could literally have it's own copy of the Bible!  Something that up until that point was basically unheard of since the Bible had to be copied by hand.  I'm sure it was a great novelty and that there were some key players who used the printing press to their advantage when it first came out and only a few people had one ... and today you probably have relatives that have written books, YOU could write a book and make a million copies of it if you wanted to.  In the United States an estimated 300,000 new books were published in 2013 (the only stats I can find easily online).
    I'd ask this question if someone is trying to get you interested in a crypto currency ... if there was no such thing as a crypto currency, and they were doing the exact same transactions with beautifully printed pieces of paper that had holograms on them to eliminate counterfeiting ... would you still be interested in their tokens ?  When there are 100 other similar tokens out there, are yours still going to have the same interest ?  If another BETTER token technology comes along, what is going to happen to the tokens you already have ?  If the people putting the token together fail, what happens to the value of your tokens ?  Is there counter-party risk ?  What if legislation changes ?
    I also think there is a strange kind of mythology that is surrounding the use of these tokens, people making claims that may be factually accurate, but practically crazy talk.  As an example ... tokens can be transferred and they are outside of the ordinary financial system, so regulators won't be able to control them.  Well ... yeah .. in theory.  But the same could be said of cash, regular old paper cash.  You can carry that to a shop, give it to them, and they give you a product, and nobody need ever know the transaction happened ... except ... IT IS ILLEGAL for the shop to make those transactions without paying taxes on the money they made.  Do you think that just because you can trade tokens online that it'll be any different ?  Yeah, you might trade a few tokens with a friend, etc, but do you think the large businesses that have the products and services that you're actually going to be interested in are going to make anonymous transactions with you, avoid paying taxes, etc, just because these token systems technically allow that to happen ?  Do you think they'd take your cash without reporting the transaction ?
    Anyway, this post is really long and I'm bored with writing about the subject, but that just scratches the surface of my feelings about these token systems.  I DO think these are important technologies, and I believe future technologies that do similar things and are implemented more efficiently will be even MORE important ... but it will not take very long at all for this to be democratized in the same way that the printing press, Internet, telephone, fax machines, and all of the other technologies we use in our daily life have been democratized.  It won't be that far in the future that we're all looking back thinking ... yeah, tokens, so what ... because your cousin will be minting tokens that are used by her party guests to open the door to the room she rented at the movie theater for her kid's birthday party, it'll be such an everyday common technology that nobody will give any more thought to it than they do about making telephone calls or printing something on a printer.
