15:33:55 Chillum: vice, they are great story tellers, too bad they don't care about fact checking

15:34:19 punkman: the pics were good

15:36:14 Chillum: we had CRTs littering the streets for a few years, nobody wanted to pay a recycling fee so they put them on the curb with a sign that says "FREE" lol

15:36:20 Chillum: nobody ever took them of course

15:36:26 Chillum: the city had to collect them all

16:19:54 Chillum: what kind of a fool deposits bitcoins

16:20:07 Chillum: If you are hearing the words "bitcoin withdrawal freeze" you are doing it wrong

16:21:05 Chillum: a piece of paper with the word "bitcoin" on it will no more provide economic aid during tough times than a piece of paper with the word "cow" on it will provide you with milk

16:21:17 Chillum: it is silver certificates all over

16:30:07 jurov: "silver withdrawal freeze" aint no happen?

16:32:08 Chillum: dollars used to be exchangable for silver, they put a stop to that

16:32:15 Chillum: suckers taking paper money

16:32:24 Chillum: it happened

16:33:10 Chillum: "We will give you paper and nickle coins and you let us store your silver, you can trade back any time"... "Money is valued by fiat and not exchangeable for silver, we are keeping the silver"

16:33:16 Chillum: what a huge and successful scam]

16:34:11 Chillum: imagine, a whole population with silver in their pockets and in only a few decades they switched that silver for paper and nickle and nobody really made a fuss

16:35:23 Chillum: a silver dime has $1.31 worth of silver in it, by modern money.

20:11:17 funkenstein_: yeah its a total scam but that figure doesn't capture the magnitude of it

20:11:30 funkenstein_: because silver has been demonetized and has less real value today

20:12:04 funkenstein_: consider that hourly wages were perhaps median 15 cents an hour a century ago

20:13:15 funkenstein_: whereas today not many on turtle island work for less than 2$ an hour

20:20:22 funkenstein_: so the value that silver dime had is more like ~15 2017 funbux

20:22:59 funkenstein_: and today we be like "oh noes! if the funbuck crashes, how are we gonna keep being continually robbed? i mean, the economy will crash if nobody can rob us anytime "

20:36:32 funkenstein_: a cackling cacophony of kleptocracy and kakocracy, doncha think kakobrekla?

22:17:19 jurov: "But there is another problem that created extra Dole shares. This is also a mess, but not a pointless one.

22:17:21 jurov: It's a real economic issue, and also one that people seem to get emotional about. It is: short-selling."

22:20:37 asciilifeform: jurov: folx buying ~promises~ should adjust their expectations.

22:20:56 asciilifeform: if they pay same price as for concrete item -- then idiots

22:21:46 jurov: there's this system, called capitalism. which would not work without anyone buying promises.

22:22:36 asciilifeform: buy as many as you like.
