  2. context matters horgan says it, it's just another flub from the lame dad wilkinson says it, it's just another callous comment from a callous person the issue shouldn't be WHY ARE WE LETTING HORGAN GET AWAY WITH AN INSENSITIVE STATEMENT!!! instead it should be why do people hold politicians to the impossible standard of never making a mistake? the result is a spin system where politicians are forever passing the buck, never honest, rarely admit their mistakes and are forced to double, triple down on ways they're wrong the amount of bandwidth the
  3. recently watched saint maud and found it quite unsettling when it was over. not at the top of the a24 horror catalogue, but certainly still excellent
  4. I'm not sure I agree with this, media attention has been huge. Global News, the most basic of basic news, did about 5 stories about DOGE this week alone. like, I can't even get my head around that. The same broadcast has even done numerous stories on NFTs. This doesn't include all the mainstream news coverage of NFTs, Musk's memes, the general price uptick. I feel like the whole crypto conversation sort of went hand-in-hand with GME for a lot of broadcasts/publications too I see so many analysts with good records predicting bitcoin's bullrun won't end until this summer, with highs
  5. not only is Cardano NOT an incredible project, it actually has no WORKING product. yes, great, it finally achieved decentralization after years and years of minting from IOHK (and Hoskinson LITERALLY bought his lambos), but not until Cardano releases a working smart contract network, which it should have done years ago, will I even consider it a functional product, let alone an incredible one. and once it releases its long-overdue testnet and public network, it will have to prove to be functional for use (look at the problems eth is now having with network congestion) if you just w
  6. I like some of Maher's takes, watch him regularly. but yeah, he is just another comedian talking about something out of his pay grade -- John Oliver also did a segment on bitcoin and while it was less editorialized than this, I found it to be largely based in ignorance too but Maher does raise some decent points. crypto is in a dangerous mania phase and some coins/tokens have colossal market caps with zero product or ANYTHING to show for it. Cardano is a perfect example. Cardano barely exists outside of a theoretical concept. BNB is another bizarre token that appears to just be a c
  7. virtually none of the measures they just said will stop hacking and extortion or money laundering. so long as there are computers, there will be computer-based money. whether that's bitcoin or monero or something yet to be created, it cannot be stopped if microsoft, amazon and whatever health company are sick of being hacked, they need to stop using sloppy/dated data storage methods. as it stands now, they have extremely large and valuable honeypots just sitting there. that is the problem, not crypto itself
  8. people who think dull, boring portraits of renaissance aristocrats are better than even a mid-tier picasso need to walk around with some identifying marker stitched on their clothes
  9. they don't OWN starbucks, do they? i think they just make these:
  10. you can't put a price on good publicity, can you? the royals weren't paid, and oprah claims they didn't know what she was going to ask... but do we really care? oprah's production company made $7-10 million from the interview. oprah is literally their neighbour. she went to their wedding. need we say more about the angle of the interview? meanwhile, harry and meghan's stock has never been higher -- which is good for them, because their budding media empire signed a reported $140m worth of contracts in the last few months. what better way to kick off a media empire than with the mog
  11. very simply put: -ethereum operates on gas (fees). -in order to make a transaction of eth from one person to the next, you need to pay gas to incentivize the network to verify the transaction. -the incentive is a small denomination of eth -currently the ethereum network is so jammed with activity that gas prices have gone way too high because people want their transactions verified quickly and therefore pay high incentives to get the verification -this is not sustainable, especially when it comes to small transactions which have smaller fees and therefore get pushed
  12. not into NFTs. find the entire thing so confusing with a future so uncertain that i'm more inclined to think it's just like the real art world -- which is to say, probably just a bunch of money laundering going on
  13. this is obviously true - but I think what makes this story so fascinating for people is that it has become -- as Politico put it -- a Rorschach test for political and social ideologies. in traditional low culture fashion, the roleplay is being performed on a stage using populist language and triggering words. but there actually isn't a clear picture at all. the cognitive dissonance required for some of these posts boggles the mind - you willfully have to ignore one detail to focus on the other, then create a story out of it this is pure media schizophrenia
