Crackdown on Cryptocurrency is a bad idea

Crackdown on Cryptocurrency is a bad idea

When it comes to cryptocurrency and the blockchain, I am very hopeful. I see it is a very transformative technology, that currently is going through some growing pains right now. South Korea, is cracking down on exchanges, and they are talking about banning cryptotrading outright in their country. This news is having an effect on the price of several of my favorite currencies.

Right now, the country is treating cryptocurrencies like they are illicit drugs. Which to me is absolutely insane. Cryptocurrency exchanges are being raided by police in Seoul. Bitcoin in Korea apparently is what the crack epidemic was to the U.S.A. in the 1980s. Let’s unjustly brutalize people for the sake of doing something perceived as wrong.

Cryptocurrency you should be investing in it

Cryptocurrency you should be investing in it

You should be investing in cryptocurrency. I don’t care who you are, if you don’t then you are really missing an opportunity. I can’t promise that in a year, two, three or even five something like Bitcoin is going to still be worth the astronomical value it currently has. However, in the present moment you’d be a fool not to buy into at least one if not multiple cryptos currently available.

As a reporter I meet a lot of interesting people, and recently I interviewed someone who was protesting against the FCC’s decision to end net neutrality. For whatever reason we started talking about trading stocks and cryptocurrencies. This guy didn’t think cryptos were worth his time, he holds the opinion that crypto in the long term will become a useless commodity not worth owning.

He might be right, but I also think it is foolish of him as someone who is interested in investing or making money to not see the opportunity currently available to him.
It has been probably four or five years since I first heard of Bitcoin, and it was something that intrigued me back then. I didn’t invest right away, however, I paid attention. Continue reading “Cryptocurrency you should be investing in it”

TL; DR: Ouija Board pt. 1/3

TL; DR: Ouija Board pt. 1/3

So this is the Ouija Board article, not really sure why I am writing this. I mean the topic is interesting enough, but it seems hilarious to me that I am sitting here at a computer writing about something I would assume everyone knows is fraudulent. But of course that isn’t the case as evidenced by social media posts I occasionally see. From time to time acquaintances of mine will share that they think their soul has been dammed for the use of one.

I put the Ouija Board up there with Tarot Cards, it is about as powerful as you are willing to make it. Meaning, that it is utter bullshit, if you make a decision or something happens to you that somehow corresponds with predictions made by those things, it just means you are a gullible idiot. I’ve done both, the Ouija Board thing was when I was maybe in fourth grade, I was allowed to be a gullible idiot at that time in my life. The Tarot Cards I did as a joke in my 20s, and nothing that was predicted came true, unless you count my grandfather dying two years later. Which means there is a hell of a lag time on these things.

TL, DR: The History of Christmas Pt. 2

TL, DR: The History of Christmas Pt. 2

Welcome back for part 2. If you read the first part of this blog then you know my central theme is that Christmas is bullshit. At best the holiday is you eating dinner with family, and greedily opening presents you did nothing to deserve.

In all likelihood though, seeing how the holidays is one of the most stressful times of the year for people,  you will probably find yourself at the end of a bottle of something very alcoholic. Bourbon is a nice choice, but unless you are in the mood to get ripped and punch things hard in the face, I’d settle for some mulled wine. Not only is it delicious, and sort of fits the Christmas theme, I’ve never once heard of someone punching out their in laws on the stuff which is always crucial to maintaining Christmas spirit and holiday joy.

TL;DR: The History of Christmas Pt. 1

TL;DR: The History of Christmas Pt. 1

I love Thanksgiving, but that time directly after it, let’s call it Christmas, I generally am not a huge fan of. Admittedly, I am a Grinch. The main reason is because I see Christmas as being kind of an artificial and hollow holiday that is based around consumerism.

Sure as a people we attach some pseudo-virtuous meaning to the holiday, and try to infuse everything with a positive message. The spirit of giving, peace and goodwill to all, the birth of our savior, etc., etc., and etc. The thing is that these are superficial, and when it comes down to it, it’s really just a celebration of greed.

It feels good to give a gift. Do we  always need a holiday to do so? Not really, and mainly, most people are more concerned with what they are getting as gifts from others, and trying to impress people with their thoughtfulness, epic wrapping skills, and decorations then just being good people.

America’s Best President Endorses a Really Cool Guy for Senator

America’s Best President Endorses a Really Cool Guy for Senator

There is a lot that is wrong with both the Republican and Democratic parties. Both appear to be serpents eating their own tails, but the Republicans in my mind are winning that competition. They appear to not only be the more morally heinous party at this point, but they also are the dominating party at the moment. This invites all sorts of problems as well.

As much as I hate certain groups on the left with their constant virtue signaling, I think they probably for the most part have their hearts in the right place. Their misguided fools, but they generally want the best for people – I hope.

With the respect to parties, as an American, I wish we had more options or they simply didn’t exist. Continue reading “America’s Best President Endorses a Really Cool Guy for Senator”

Round Two Review: Justice League Movie

Round Two Review: Justice League Movie

I want to return to the topic of the Justice League  movie for an article. Mainly, because on second viewing I soon realized that the movie is pretty bad. It isn’t outright garbage, but it isn’t good either.

My second viewing of the film was sort of like my second viewing of Thor: Ragnarok, I walked away with a completely different opinion. In the case of Thor: Ragnarok, I found the movie to be more charming and hilarious upon second viewing.

In the case of Justice League not so much. There was some charm to the movie, but it wasn’t enough to completely salvage it.

Spoilers after the jump Continue reading “Round Two Review: Justice League Movie”
