I think it's saying that she's one seven matches in a row against the Chinese player. Pretty impressive that she's beat number to twice.

Not free to do something is de facto “illegal”

No. Illegal means agains the law. There are plenty of other obligations that have nothing to do with the law.

Fake news. I've seen the man with my own eyes, he's as unhealthy as a guy who drinks 12 diet cokes a day. Anyone who believes he is healthy is an MSM sheep. Use your eyes! Use your minds! Don't be sheep to the fake news!

Anyone who thought they were ‘investing’ by buying these arbitrary, no-yield, unproductive software tokens should think again. This is or was a speculative bubble.

Very speculative. That said, these tokens essentially are no different than the bits and bytes in a banks infrastructure, or those little pieces of paper we call money. None of it has any actual value, people just think it does.

We should stop believing in fake value objects, and return to bartering. That's the only thing that truly equates two values together. I'm not going to give you a horse for a days worth of rice, I'm going to want as much rice as I could use a horse to produce in tilling the fields etc.

Whatever happened to that theory?

What theory? I have never seen this theory posted anywhere.

So I wonder if Bannon will lie under oath.

Why are American taxpayers being asked to pay for the Wall when Pres. Trump guaranteed that Mexico would pay for it?

Especially since the American populace doesn't even want it.

Anyways, it is in the Democrats best interests to shut down the government. The Republicans did that, and they won the next election.

He wouldn't do well on a cognitive assessment. He would do better than anyone ever did on a cognitive assessment. He would have the best cognitive assessment ever, no one would do better on a cognitive assessment than Trump, he would give all the best answers. Bigly.

Haha I gave you a thumbs up.

Oprah vs. Trump? If the Dems want to win shouldn't they pick someone with at least ONE qualification? Picking a hated woman and fixing primary elections to "make history" didn't work too well for them last time...

Can you guys point me to where I can get the talking notes on the anti-Oprah talking points? I want to know what the specific points of the smear campaign are, so I can see what we are working with.

Or are the notes only available to subscribed members of the Republican party?

Never get pregnant if you're not prepared.

Sometimes people don't choose to get pregnant, it happens in spite of precautions to the contrary.

Is there a right to remain silent? I’ve heard Miranda Rights do not exist in Japan.

Well of course Miranda rights don't exist here - that's an American law. But you do have the right to remain silent in Japan.

But you know he would pose the hell out of pretending to turn the train's steering wheel.

And when he screwed up he'd blame it on Muslims and fake news.

So much winning we were going to get sick of his winning, right?

Well he was right about getting sick. He was just wrong on what we would get sick about.

Posted in: Virtual currency is recognized in Japan as a form of payment for goods and services, but how can tax authorities determine if bitcoin investors, who made millions if not billions of yen last year, are evading taxes? See in context

I thought the entire point of bitcoin was that they can't.

I don't think that's the entire point, but it's definitely a fundamental part of the bitcoin system. Transactions are anonymous.

That said, many people use wallets that are hosted on bitcoin exchanges, which means they have associated their real person with their wallet, and therefore it's quite easy to see if they have made money on their 'investment'. The government can simply create regulation to force Japanese exchanges to divulge the details of wallets they host. The other thing they can do is create extremely strict penalties for non-disclosure of income made, to scare people into self-divulging.

examples of where anyone said they should be legally obligated to keep quiet about politics please.

No one said legal until you did. Any other goalposts you'd like to shift?

Climate, and weather, changes. That is a scientific fact.

And they've never changed at the rate they are, and that rate has been accelerated by human actions. That is a scientific fact.

Bitcoin is anonymous! That's why I use it. I wish I could use it for more.

I don’t know how it is that Hollywood creates their own scandal and then uses it to preach to US?

This is just silly. Hollywood is a bunch of people, just like on this board. There is no central governing body that 'creates scandals', there are just people in it who do. And other people who preach about it. Same as on this board.

What else could Bannon do? The lemming right isn't going to support him over Trump, and the left is never going to bring him into the fold. He only had one avenue, and that was to pucker up and say hi to the Trump Tush.

Here is bitflyer's price list. I don't see anything like 3000 yen on there anywhere

https://bitflyer.jp/ja-jp/Commission?top_link

And seeing as Japan does not use dollars, I think the first poster was just trolling:

 it costs about $30 in fees per transaction.

Posted in: Bitcoin proving big hit in Japan See in context

Where does this $30 transaction fee come from? Bitcoin has very tiny transaction fees built in, but there are no external entities that are (or even are able to) charge transaction fees on top of this, so I don't understand these claims of Japan having different bitcoin transaction fees - that's impossible!

No drug his harmless.

But prohibition is harmful. Much more harmful than marijuana.

Umm, have you heard of Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Monacoin (big in Japan) and Putincoin?

They're popping up like weeds, each with better tech than Bitcoin.

What's your point? None of them have been enough to disrupt Bitcoin yet. Sometimes all it takes is to be the first one in the game, and get a strong foothold.

Whether they are 'better' or not than bitcoin isn't relevant - it's whether people use it or not that matters. And with bitcoin being used by more people, with more places they can use it, it's not likely to go anywhere anytime soon.

Bitcoin is on its last legs.

I don't think so. It still has the same intrinsic value it always did. It may drop in price, but until/unless a new technology comes along that disrupts it, bitcoin is not going anywhere.

And in other news, bitcoin's real value could be zero...

http://fortune.com/2017/12/26/bitcoin-price-value-bubble-crash-says-morgan-stanley-analyst/

Morgan Stanley has a vested interest in Bitcoin failing, as they are a large bank, and bitcoin bypasses the banks. Take articles written by their people with a grain of salt, as they want to try to pressure people away from bitcoin all they can.
