Mt. Gox goes bankrupt

Well, yes and no.

As to the "fakeness" of cryptocurrency vis-a-vis fiat, in the theoretical long term, cryptocurrencies actually tend to be more stable and predictable than fiat money. This is because cryptocurrencies usually have fixed caps on the amount of currency units that can be created, and their value cannot be inflated, perpetually and arbitrarily, to suit the interests of a central authority. As a result, cryptocurrencies have scarcity and predictability, which (like currencies backed by gold or silver) makes them a far better reflection of *real* value - that is, the measure of the actual value of a labor force's output - than fiat currency, which is unstable by design, and is based around debt and bubbles of imaginary value. Now, *it could be that imaginary value is a good thing*. Whether bank-sponsored imaginary value really is the key to limitless wealth (and it certainly is, so long as you're one of the 1%), or whether the only true wealth lies in the real value of goods and services produced by the rest of us, that's very much an open question, and it's made a very lively debate for almost a century now! But the decentralized, print-limited value of cryptocurrency is far less "fake" than the perpetually manipulated value of fiat currency.

Cryptocurrencies are also, perhaps counter-intuitively, much more resistant to robbery than fiat currency; while "programming errors" and "hacking" attacks" may indeed pose hypothetical threats to the security of one's cyber-wallet, most cryptocurrencies are set up in such a way that hacking them is extraordinarily costly and difficult, far more difficult than hacking traditional fiat currencies stored electronically. Remember, banking has been digital for decades now, so any criticism of cryptocurrencies on the basis of potential hacking threats, needs to take into account the fact that hackers can, and do, rob people of their digitally-stored fiat currency every single day. What's more, fiat currency, being physical as well as digital, is saddled with a whole host of potential threats that crypotcurrencies will never face: you can lose your dollars by being mugged, by misplacing them, by having your bank burn down, by leaving them in your pants while you're doing laundry, by them being intentionally devalued by a government defaulting on the debts it's accrued while trying to maintain the world's largest military-industrial complex, etc etc etc.


There's only really one valid piece of criticism I've heard so far, and I admit, it is a VERY valid criticism: namely, market confidence. All systems of monetary exchange are only as strong as we think they are; without confidence from the market, any currency is useless. We're seeing this with a lot of cryptocurrencies, and we'll see this with a lot more in the years to come. Now, it bears pointing out that this is an issue that plagues EVERY form of currency, not just newfangled cyber-libertarian e-bucks; plenty of currencies go bust, even our own US economy saw countless prospective currencies flounder to extinction before the venerable dollar took over (the only one of hundreds of stable currencies our ancestors used, now available to us here today). But being able to view cryptocurrencies within the grand framework of historical inevitability doesn't really inspire confidence RIGHT NOW...

... so as much as it pains me to say, until things settle down, I'm firmly with you Luddite skeptics! I'm not about to plunk my life-sazings on Dogecoins when Dogecoins could easily be gone next month. Sorry, Ayn. Caveat investor!

Well that's unfortunate, OZ. But when you say "symphonic metal", what do you mean, precisely? "Symphonic metal" is one of those really broad terms that's used by different people to describe a whole range of bands, many of whom may be nothing alike. For example, I've heard the term used, in different contexts by different people, to describe Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Rhapsody, After Forever, Yngwie, The Gathering, and whatever choral-medieval bullshit Dark Symphonies is limping to the barn with lately, despite the fact that all of these bands are quite different, both in temperament and in style.

Still, Nightwish is pretty much the gold standard by which all other "symphonic" metal bands are measured, so if you don't fancy them, I'm probably not going to be able to change your mind. You're mostly into hippie prog stuff, right? You might like Opeth, Therion, or Ayreon (their Ambeon project is especially Nightwish-y), assuming you haven't heard them already and/or are willing to classify them as "symphonic".


(on a side note: symphonic pop-punk! Now there's an idea!)

StalkedInBoston goes to the job center
02/28/14, 05:58

So I was thinking of maybe heading into Boston for St Patrick's Day. I don't know if I should even be thinking this, but... does anyone know what streets she usually hangs out on? Not to stalk StalkedInBoston or anything, more like just hoping to spot a celebrity, discretely and from a respectful distance.

Could be a five for evil, but it does not look the slightest bit funny, and I see that Object Lesson rules are in effect.

That's funny, because I hated (and continue to hate) Cena for the very same reason! Well, also for the fact that his stories are boring and he's a terrible technical wrestler, but in light of how he's such a genuinely nice guy, I think I could get over all that, if it just weren't for that whole retarded rapper gimmick. No offense.

He's like Scotty 2 Hotty, only he's trying way too hard.

It might be cool if he rebranded himself as a Yanni-style New Age pianist, though. He could dress in Fabio shirts, and decorate the ring with aromatherapy candles and handcrafted Native American crystal art before every match. The housewives would eat that shit up!

I think 13 is a bit old for their taste.

Most of what I know of them comes from the statutory rape allegations and the Jessi Slaughter affair, but they also play music, and yes, you'd be better off not Youtubing it. I think "juggalos" might be a bit generous; they're more like the tween-stalking pedophile version of Cinderella or Ratt.

Well, you're wrong about it being awful, but I can't say you're wrong about the Pure Moods. See my comment above.

IIRC the man has gone on record saying he prefers chill New Age mood music to metal.

Well, Disney movies and themeparks and stuff. I guess Ducktales is part of the Disney empire, too, so it fits.

OF COURSE it's Tuomas! A very nice fellow and a great composer, but also one of the biggest queerbag dorks in metal. He makes Timmo from Stratovarius look like a varsity football quarterback.

For those of you who don't follow Nightwish, he's also a Disney fanatic.

So what's all this about side characters? I don't know much about Animaniacs, hell, I didn't even know the show HAD secondary characters besides Hello Nurse.

Are the exploding girl and chicken fellow both recurring characters? Why does everyone hate them?
