They’re not going to close them down, never. The US needs an off site where we can always interrogate and use coheres methods to obtain vital information from terrorist

I am confused, who decide who are the terrorists and who needs to be tortured ?

Why if for some reason your government decides to send you there ?

Putin must be frustrated; 45 jumped to the phone whenever his boss called.

Ok, now back to reality, why won’t Biden confront Putin and challenge him to a debate? Biden is smart, so he says...he should show the nation Putin is not match for him when it comes to facts. I think it’s fair, better than slinging Nukes at each other.

I am confused, why would country's leaders would debate about anything ?! Is it a TV show or something ? To keep the plebs entertained ?

This gangster argument is also nonsense. The USD is currently the first currency used for illicit transactions. The fiat in cash is completly anonymous while Bitcoin is not, one can trace all the transactions since its inception, that's why the cash is still the illegal business king.

nothing you say there is an actual improvement on the current system. risks included. and your remarks about computer usage don’t make sense. in order to be more widely used, bitcoin needs more computers and therefore exponentially more power.

That's simply not true.

> no, what’s really funny is how a currency that proponents pride as being secure keeps getting stolen and people keep losing passwords for it.

As much as people getting their internet banking password stolen, not more. What about credit cards ? You don't even need to rob it physically to use it ...

what’s also really funny is how something that proponents keep saying is the currency of the future has a miserable track record in environmental friendliness and can only get worse due to the incentives built into the system.

Bitcoin doesn't need more than a normal computer to run, lots of people currently want a share of the pie and participate, this is summed in those ridiculous comparisons.

They convert energy into currency, like close to any business does.

What about the usage of Visa or Mastercard ? All the terminals, the ATMS, the banks computers, servers, physical offices woldwide, ...

Or gold mining ?

Posted in: Game on, again: GameStop surges and no one truly knows why See in context

egads man!Today 01:09 pm JST

It's been posited that hedge funds are shorting ETFs that own GameStop stock instead of shorting the stock itself. Other news has reported short-sellers of GME lost $818 million on Wednesday.

There is indeed a small group of well funded people short selling it via all the possible means since the beginning, they've been screwed but I think by some other well funded institutions, WallStreetBets is just anecdotal and has only brought the fight to the public lights.

It's really interesting that those moves are put on the back of a few small investors from an Internet forum, since the beginning this is definitely institutional money, a few guys must have some fun with the whole story.

This is a subjective analysis.

Why would someone other than a hacker, cybercriminal, money launderer, organized crime gang, tax evader, speculator or drug gang want an untraceable, unregulated “currency”?

You know that the most criminally used currency is the USD right ?

Burning BushToday 08:25 am JST

Currently, around 78% of issued bitcoins are either lost or being held with very little intent to sell

So there's a latent supply of about 14 million coins that could hit the market at any moment and sink the whole thing.

There's a latent supply of 35000 tons or gold that could hit the market at any moment and sink the while thing.

Yes, check out that stats.

This show has ruined so many young women's lives, it's an awful example for women if how to live their lives. They hit late 30's realise suddenly that the chances of finding a trustworthy loving partner is gone along with any hopes of kids and a family. Then loneliness in old age awaits. Sad.

Really ? There have been studies or something ?
