K16 EDUCATION

Dr. David Boyce — Follow this thread
To be clear I am all for students choosing their own teams and such and I am aware of the false dichotomy of the situation. But generally due to sports, boarding houses etc my crew are quite used to boys as one gang and girls as another. So, my experience of this is normally allowing 5 or so classes do this activity in any given year, always with the same set up and always with me observing just how it goes. In total I must now have observed the experiment about 60 times.

BITCOIN

In the yellow band, you’ll start to hear a voice. “Shit, I never had this much money in my life. What the fuck is a bitcoin anyway? I should sell!”. You must learn to ignore that voice. You have already sold. What the fuck is a dollar anyway? The yellow is where heroes are made.
Bitcoiners are afraid they won’t have enough $BTC when it inevitably shoots past $100k.

Stephen Palley
Let’s also acknowledge that the fact that Bitcoin price is manipulated isn’t an argument against it. Name a commodity whose price hasn’t been manipulated? Hell, we have an entire statute devoted to Onions in the US, just for this reason.
Ponzi as a legal theory, standing alone, against “Bitcoin” doesn’t work in the U.S. Other theories that might against individual defendants (or groups of them). But you can’t successfully paint the asset writ large as “a Ponzi”, that’s as dumb as claiming it’s not manipulated.
“Bitcoin is “literally” not a Ponzi scheme. Ponzis are an investment fraud where fraudsters pay old investors w/ new investor $$, unknown to either. Also, $25 million a day in investor cash “literally” does not go to miners. Maybe dumb for you to spend $$ on, but not a Ponzi.”
