jbssm A'murica (814 comments)

Oh well and continuing the stereotype of Americans having big asses, behaving like kids and making an art of off their lack of basic politeness.

Hackers Plundered Israeli Defense Firms That Built 'Iron Dome' Missile Defense

jbssm Re: Tag, you're it! (184 comments)

Last I hear, Israel is using people in their all territory (and Palestinian territory forcibly settled by Israelis) as a human shield.

In fact, I hear every time Hamas fires a rocket into Israeli (and Palestinian territory forcibly settled by Israelis), they are trying to hit a high ranking official of the Israeli government or army, but they miss 99.999% of the time.

Investor Tim Draper Announces He Won Silk Road Bitcoin Auction

jbssm Re:No, I won the bitcoin auction! (115 comments)

Because if he was lying, the actual winner is extremely likely to issue a "nuh uh. *I* won the auction" statement

Which would have exactly the same weight.

Funny thing is that Tim Draper waited almost 5 days to come forward and tell that he won the auction... just when he saw anyone else was doing it. So, my statement remains: There is zero evidence he actually won the auction except for his word.

Investor Tim Draper Announces He Won Silk Road Bitcoin Auction

jbssm No, I won the bitcoin auction! (115 comments)

Seriously, in this shady world of bitcoin, where people lie and deceit all the time how can anyone take someone word for granted?

There is zero evidence Tim Draper was the auction winner, except for is own statement, that's not backed up by absolutely anything.

Even more, I clearly remember the days where Mark Karpelles was a great guy, a visionary, an entrepreneur that embraced bitcoin... look at what the "bitcoin people" say about him now.

Match.com, Mensa Create Dating Site For Geniuses

jbssm 60 IQ is indeed a carrot (561 comments)

The IQ scale has its median at 100 by definition. As such, someone with an IQ of 60 is indeed retarded.

Oklahoma Botched an Execution With Untested Lethal Injection Drugs

jbssm Re:What's the problem? (1198 comments)

What is gained is justice and a deterrence to future criminals.

Of course that the fact that all statistical evidence points that an harsher penalty is not a deterrent to violent crimes, was simply put aside by you in order to present your flawed argument.

Oklahoma Botched an Execution With Untested Lethal Injection Drugs

jbssm Re:What's the problem? (1198 comments)

None of you would survive in an open debate with me

Of course not. It's mathematically proven that it's impossible to win a debate with a troll since the troll just keeps trolling any argument and evidence given by the other part.

The NSA, I'm not worried about. They don't want me out of a job. China, definitely.

The if world was comprised only of people like you, we would all still be slaves under the pharaoh absolute authority.

Surge In Litecoin Mining Leads To Graphics Card Shortage

jbssm Re:An Honest Question (213 comments)

What policy forces people to have debt and who is "we" that determined it? People have debt because of their own doing. Blame yourself for your debt, not someone else.

You are right sir. I guess most of the world population could just live in the street... or you know, not eat. That way they would be free of debt. FREEDOM!

Surge In Litecoin Mining Leads To Graphics Card Shortage

jbssm Re:An Honest Question (213 comments)

Why is the ever increasing value a problem? Multiply the number of BTC that exists (or that will ever exist... about double what we have now), per it's price in USD. Now compare that to the world GDP... it's much, much lower, so no... BTC is not overpriced, in fact, far from it in case it want to become a real currency.

Surge In Litecoin Mining Leads To Graphics Card Shortage

jbssm Re:Lol@fads. (213 comments)

It would be a bit dumb to whoever has 20% of the coin to just dump it. He would loose a huge amount of money that way.

What would happen - assuming that person had an average or above average IQ - is that he will start selling it's bitcoins slowly.

At the moment, if you sell 1000 BTC in MtGox over the course of a day (so, 20 BTC per hour), the impact in the price is minimal, so that person could cash out 1 million dollars per day without affecting the price considerably./b>

GitHub Takes Down Satirical 'C Plus Equality' Language

jbssm Re:Is this within GitHub's mission? (575 comments)

So while I agree that both should be unacceptable, the reality is that one is much more unacceptable as a direct result of [arbitrarily long time frame] in which women have been treated as either property or second class citizens.

So I guess that a group of black people came and enslaved you wouldn't feel it was that much unacceptable, right? I mean, after all it's just a direct result of [arbitrarily long time frame] in which women black people have been treated as either property or second class citizens.

NSA Head Asks How To Spy Without Collecting Metadata

jbssm Re:Easy. (509 comments)

Step 1: Require that the companies collect the information and retain it.

Sure, because the only thing I would like more than, for the US government to have access to all my online life, would be for a US corporation to have access to all my online life.

Pirate Bay Founder Warg Being Held in Solitary Confinement

jbssm Re:Solitary Confinement (192 comments)

Damn, some way in which the USA is better?

If you consider that being denied access to certain aspects of the outside world while being held in jail waiting to go to court, is worst than being sodomized and stabbed in some American jail, then yes, USA is certainly better in that regard.

Bitcoin Thefts Surge, DDoS Hackers Take Millions

jbssm You are right... dollar is safe. (305 comments)

My grandmother stored enough money to buy a car 40 years ago under her mattress and now it's enough to buy an hamburger. I stored enough money to buy an hamburger in my bitcoin wallet 1 year ago, and now is enough to buy a car.

jbssm Re:Bitcoin hype over? (305 comments)

what's the one thing people use BC for at the moment in addition to speculating? Paying for suspicious goods or services online

I always pay for my Humble Bundle game deals with bitcoins. OMG, are you telling me Humble Bundle is actually a Pedofile, Terrorist, Marxist organization??? I knew it! I knew it all along!
