google could sabotage cloudflare and prevent firefox from automatically switching 8.8.8.8 users to 1.1.1.1

(they won't, but it'd be funny)

I really don't get what's the fuss about gov workers not being paid during shutdown in the US. Every day there are companies going under, and their workers not being paid, and no one gives a fuck, and we are supposed to sympathize with IRS workers that thought that because they live off the money the government steal from other people THIS can't happen to them? Guess what, it can happen. Now if you're not happy with that just move on and find a real job where you actually do something useful.

Been trying to read up on bitcoin for a few months, but got a better understanding in a few weeks doing @[email protected]'s . Stoked to see a tiny version of bitcoin in action on three nodes doing mining, difficulty and reward adjustments, nakomoto consensus and reorgs!

@Shekelcoin @richd Bitcoin actually it makes me think of a famous quote about the French Revolution, that roughly translated gives "The Revolution seems to be an unstoppable force ; it uses people as its instrument, but as soon as some rascals pretend to control it, they fall ignominiously"
That makes me super bullish

@btcFUD @Sosthene I played around with Python a week or two prior to doing Jimmy Song's Programming Blockchain, and that really helped. It doesn't take a lot of time to pick up.

Yesterday, 26th of September was Stanislav Petrov Day.

A day to celebrate that you, me, everyone isn't nuclear vapour right now.
SP - disobeyed orders and military protocol, used his own thinking, and by doing so averted nuclear retaliation based on false alarms that would likely have caused a mass nuclear war in 1983.

Stanislav Petrov, often referred to as "The man who saved the world" died in December 2017

Oh. Gemini. Because they’re twins. Damn I’m slow.

Why do so many ancaps like Dash and BCH?

Wouldn’t it be funny if Andreas got “Mastering Ethereum” into bookstores just in time to see ETH squeak back down to, like, two bucks? Unemployed solidity programmers will be burning their pre-ordered copies for warmth.
