All that's missing is an intravenous drip of Mountain Dew and a 25mg prescription to Metformin for the diabetes you'll have. :rofl:
That’s wicked.
Provigil plus a urinary catheter plus a saline drip and you’re golden

Pre any economic crisis there is always a "clue" that can be picked up by the illusionary properties of our senses and processed into clarity.

Remember back in 2008 the clue was your broke uncle and cousin buying a $500k house in the latest and newest developed community?

Whats the clue today? What basic principles of economics are we bypassing or "violating"?

Im afraid to say i see it in the free money our government has handed out to any joe blow bypassing scarcity.

Who knows. Not hating. Just saying.

In Germany, appreciation on physical and paper gold is tax free after holding it for one year.

There is now a new proposal from the ministry of finance to abolish this exemption for paper gold.

Conveniently, this happens just a few days after the EU decided on their new plans to rob us.

Physical gold will probably be next. And at some point, owning gold will be prohibited again.

I just went on my first ever online date after tons of rejections by either single moms, severely obese ladies or somehow matching with transvestites :rofl: @Xeon

Interesting experience, did a hike in my area and talked about life. Pretty cool, let's see if it goes somewhere?

I've been killing myself in the past few years with my shitty slave jobs that I missed out on some of the most basic things of life.... and now driving myself to the brink of insanity dealing with ''running a business'' well, I can't really call it that, to much work left to do.

Let's get this million.....

Single moms are good if they're hot. But it's always more of a fling with them rather than actual relationship or settling down....

Interesting to see how this develops:

Yes. We live in a crazy time.

Tiktok is a good platform for advertising. The duration is exactly designed for what a commercial ad feels like.

ByteDance and its founder are an ambitious group of people. The ultimate goal of Tiktok is to serve as an all in one app to eat into the market share of youtube, facebook, Tinder or even whatsapp.

In the founder’s word is to build an empire that extends its border naturally and incrementally.

I suspect if TikTok really gets sold to MS, ByteDance will probably still retain some sort of control or shares in the app, and it's probably sold to MS to get around the whole "China spy app" issue (after all, if it becomes MS's product, they can finally say it's an American app and US/India has lesser grounds to ban it).

Eventually I suspect its is business competition. Facebook and Youtube do not want that. National security is sort of a distraction.

The fact is TENCENTS and wechat already banned all Bytedance product. You cannot use ByteDance products on Tencents platforms. Pony Ma wanted to acquire ByteDance to form part his empire. Zhang YiMing told him that he didn’t start his company to work for TENCENTS. After that it is war.

Chinese Tech companies have always been banning each other on their own platforms to try to kill of the growth of competitors.

TikTok is not a hardware company. I see the national security and data privacy argument as bogus. My Apple phone collects more data with their facial id system.

There is legal technicality issue as well. The government cannot ban users from downloading the app or get the telco company to block access to TikTok. It will trigger first amendment legal issues. Probably it will Drag for years even if Trump wanted to ban.

Just as an interesting aside - in the UK we don't pay taxes one lottery wins.
Big whoop, right?
BUT
this is because we don't pay tax on any form of betting or gambling wins.

This includes financial spread betting.

So if any of my UK taxpayer peeps are considering a little share trading on the side, & like the idea of no commission, stamp duty, or capital gains tax (& are or become knowledgable enough to handle a high risk leveraged product of course) then look into spread betting.


It also means you can't offset loses for tax either, but come on.

Update: TikTok: China's ByteDance agrees to divest US operations after Trump threat

Bill Still, a critic of central banking. Talks about tally sticks and the tally stick system. I niether agree nor disagree with anything in the video. Im just awe struck that a piece of wood was used as money at one point.

This is where the etymology of the word stockholder came from. Because they would use tally sticks to buy corporations. The bottom side of the stick was called the stock hence the word stock holder.

Check it out. Cool stuff.
