Yeah API shit was the final straw, but it was a long time coming. Honestly I'd switch way sooner had there been any alternative. I and a lot of other people tried, but nothing ever really took off even though the systems were there.

It's about adoption, but mainstream adoption is also what kills a site like this.

You know... In my life I've had to talk a few people out of scams.

I know they were scammed, it's blatantly a scam, the evidence is overwhelming, my experience is solid, everyone I know of's experience says the same.

Yet they will argue with you back and forth and never really be satisfied because they want to believe it so much, and I imagine it stings a good bit being told you're being ripped the fuck off and you're too stupid or inexperienced to understand that.

I'm never confrontational about it, I just make it very perfectly clear that proceeding would be extremely ill advised, and that even their own worries brought them to me asking for my opinion because they trust my judgment.

It scares me how long it takes to convince them, and how often in the end they come to me a month later and I ask them how it went, and they went and bought it anyway, for whatever far fetched rationalization they managed to construct for themselves.

Psychology is real, psychology is simple, all it takes to control humans is to have no care for anything but yourself.

But which governments, though? Which one, there are so many... I can't think of a single one that would be motivated to influence US politics and do something so blatantly anti-democratic.

It's Texas Hold'em with extra steps.

They are degenerate gamblers.

Gambling, in my personal opinion, is one of the absolutely most tragic and devastating dependencies there are, and I would include meth abuse among them. At least meth heads tend to live past 40 or so. You get gambling debts and you will be fitted with lead boots in the harbor. I lost my best friend to it, and I've seen others on the same path. Drugs are nothing compared to what gambling does to the brain. It's basically the same, only imagine a drug that you must take a new dose of every 0.82 seconds. Forever.

I remember something about a war in Europe, but then out of the blue came a super weak Hamas attack on Israel, and now I don't know who's warring whom anymore. Taylor Swift though, she's got above average looks and talent, so something is good in my world at least.

I am shocked hearing people say that out loud even. Isn't that extremely, painfully, provably obvious to everyone? No. It is not. It is a matter of "both sides" debate, apparently.

The Saudis, the Israelis, and the Chinesis all have old "trade" agreements with the US.

One other country has joined the club, only they snuck in the back door to burn the whole thing down.

None of the others' intent is to overthrow US democracy, because they depend on it for not living like Tuskan Raiders in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

"I'll settle my debts when I get to the White House."

Solid gamble for investors, honestly. Like, extremely good. If I was a subhuman parasitic dickworm or something, I'd put at least half my chips on red.

And seriously, look what we're doing. While we are talking about how he is going to repay his debts for [insert crooked fucking shit and prostitutes pissing on Trumps face here], we are not talking about how the FUCK a guy with his record is even allowed to run for president.

Just moving the goalposts, one investor at a time. Everyone knows this hog will get slaughtered sooner or later, and they are sucking its tiny teats for as much daddy milk they can before it dries up.

Then it's MTG's turn to be led to the top of the Aztec pyramid and control the world for a few years before she goes soccer mom tits up.

Ooh, I'm gonna go see how long it takes to be banned.

Ugh it's so calculated too... Just as Reddit went full retard, the Dumpf stands there welcoming the exodus to his Glorious One Regime As A Service.

What happened to Reddit after the Digg! migration was that Reddit turned into shit. And now reddit passes the concentrated shit onto the next gaping mouth who also happens to be President (because let's not kid ourselves, that's how we all know it will play out- we are not fighting the Republicans, we are fighting the Russians and the Republicans). When will the centipede stop feasting on our feces?

This is not aimed at you or anyone particular just my thoughts, but it's amazing how uneducated people are when it comes to finance. I know I am, and every day I learn a little more of how gullible I've been. I did live on the streets selling drugs though, and once you see how that game is played, you see how every fucking game is played. You do this and he does that and they do this and that for you and we all come out on top, right? Throw a couple of million dollar lawyers, accountants, legal experts, think tanks, connections to the monetary and industrial elite of the world, and stack the SEC with 92% former and future employees of yours, and suddenly the game makes sense without any need to get the academics.

It's not about the math, it's about who you know.

If anyone is skeptical then remember exactly what Clump was convicted of and what his punishment was.

Now he's crowdfunding that punishment away, and people think that somehow it's impossible that it's a scam because of financial regulations? Bruhs..

You hit the nail on the head.

Druggies may steal from you, but gamblers ruin the lives of everyone around them.

Funny you should say that by the way, and horrifyingly sad, but two Russians drove my friend to his mother's home in the middle of the night, shoved her in the car with her son, then was told to pay $10K (which was pure interest at that time) for her son's life. She did. A couple of weeks later he was dead, drowned about a hundred yards away his childhood home.

There was never ever ever ever any reasoning with him. The sheer number of girls he hustled, and by god the money they "gave" him, they were all permanently psychologically damaged after their encounters. Actually a very insane story. He was an amazing guy, literally everybody loved him. He walked into a room, a bar, a subway car... He dominated it instantly, like the lone hero out of some Western movie.

Sorry, I wax sentimental.

RIP Joni.

E: he actually came to me in those weeks leading up to his death and asked me, "if it was a matter of life and death, would you borrow me $10K?", and I answered, "No, because you'd be back next week asking for the same thing, and one day I'd say no and then you'd die anyway". We were always sarcastic and fuck you towards one another but like brothers you know. I didn't understand it at the time, but he was literally asking me to save his life. In hindsight, I don't know how to feel about it, because I was 100% right, yet, what kind of human wouldn't do anything to save their friend's life?

Fuck this woke some feels, sorry for ranting.

Yeah, us communists are all the same, just repetitive propagandistic slogans and dumb soundbites led by an uncharismatic moron telling us what to do.

Go build a wall, or bridge or whatever.
