A 24-Year-Old Scammed Apple 42 Times In 16 Different States
Not really, I know people who write POS code for a company that competes with NCR. They have no ties to banks. it's all about talking to processors, like VISA, Mastercard, etc.
I guess people are trying to pin this on the bank because banks are evil. #wallstreet #99% #ideserverwhatyouworkedfor #givemestuff

Why Snowden Did Right
They are still tapping phones, they are still encroaching on our very-so-precious privacy. I don't want NSA to hear me talk sex with a russian prostitute overseas. It's my right as an American to do what I want behind closed doors....

That same rock is there in the newer photo with the donut-rock. Now, just look down a little bit and slight right you will see a darker spot that wasn't that dark in the earlier picture and it appears to cast a shadow. Therefore, there are more rocks (at least two) that weren't there before.
Bitcoin Payments Go Live At Overstock — Two Quarters Early
Bitcoin is the Libertarian's Currency!
Taken from his rant:
"Libertarians love it because it pushes the same buttons as their gold fetish and it doesn't look like a "Fiat currency". You can visualize it as some kind of scarce precious data resource, sort of a digital equivalent of gold. Nation-states don't control the supply of it, so it promises to bypass central banks. "
First Survey of Commercially Viable Asteroids Estimates Only 10 Are Worth Mining
Not only that, the yield of such intrinsic metals on these asteriods may literally be a thousand times higher than current yields here.
Of course, very high yields of such metals can be very detrimental to the market because t he whole premise of mining is to have low availability to make extreme mining ventures viable.. Why continue spending billions of dollars in mining palladium, iridium, if the value drops to that of gold prices?

This is what I was going to say lol. History has proven him wrong. Of course, it is only a matter of time until a company will have technologically progressed enough to actually go an mine an asteroid since that is currently the only economically viable endeavour for space travelling. We need precious metals.
Bradley Manning Wants To Live As a Woman
Yes. So as to avoid cruel and unusual punishment at a constitutional level, prisons have to provide adequate health care.
