The Hot Bitcoin Big Bang

We compare the introduction of Cryptocurrency to Cosmology.

From somewhere, nobody knows where, the source code appears.

The various coins rise in price compared to background legacy currencies, while tending towards equilibrium between cryptocurrencies. Huge mining monoliths dominate the market.

All the coins are mined. Expected in the middle of the 2020’s. A phase transition occurs as mining operations rationalize. Many high-energy cryptocurrencies will go out of existance.

Fiat lux. Surviving coins spread throughout the market. The period of price discovery begins.

The big banks muscle in to the market and dominate it for a period of relative instability

99% of the coins end up in the hands of 1% of the people.

Another Right Women Have Lost to Google

In this case it is the right women have to communicate news of their pregnancy. Google have determined that if a woman wishes to use the Internet she forfiets the right of privacy in-utero.

Case In Point

I was browsing YouTube looking for videos on how to strip down and repair a lathe and I suddenly started getting ads for utterly unrelated new-born baby products. Do they think I am planning on machining a baby? That I am not the kind of engineer that would use the right tool for the job?

Or is there something the wife, with whom I share an internet connection, isn’t telling me?

Flag Sport

Since the urban dictionary now paradoxically requires one to obtain corporate sponsorship before one may submit a definition we will keep ours here from now on.

Flag Sport, noun

A Flag Sport is any sport, professional or amateur, played under the auspices of one or more national flags. This includes both domestic national leagues and international competitions. Considered, particularly in the latter case, to promote nationalism, border walls, and other trans-national social division, the passions invoked by Flag Sports can often be of such intensity that players and spectators have to be physically separated from each other by fences and walls just like the borders represented by the flag(s) the game is being played under. As opposed to local and regional sports where players and spectators alike go for a beer together afterwards to discuss the match.

This is not to be confused with sports that involve use of a flag, such as Flag Football. This definition is thus provided for disambiguation between “Flag Sports”, those played under a flag, and “sport that is played with a flag”. An international competition of Flag Football would fall under both definitions.

Example Usage

Tom: “Do you want to come over and watch the Olympics on TV?
Jerry: “No thanks, I am opposed to Flag Sports

SJW: “What do you mean you want the USA to win the World Cup in Moscow? Flag Sports are literally Hitler!
