I don’t wish to sound apocalyptic about this, but one has the sense that at present our society is simultaneously characterized by wildly disproportionate accountability for trivial transgressions and zero accountability for profound institutional failure.

Dafuq was this Twitter!? The whole site disappeared for a few minutes 😂

Today is first day of the @Dr_CSWright vs @PeterMcCormack trial. No jury.

I have an anonymous contact in attendance, who has promised to take notes and pass them onto me.

I will report on the case at the end of each day, using these notes.

Aim is to avoid taking sides.

Some days it just happens, 30 seconds I was done!

This is my situation. We discovered my father is in early stages of alzheimers a few months back and my parents are asking for help selling ~0.5 btc to fund a holiday

My inclination is to tell them to wait... but I've been telling them that for years and now time is limited :/

I know most bitcoiners wouldn't advise anyone to sell rn but I have a question.

If a loved one that you knew had increasingly limited good days left on this planet wanted a holiday and asked you to help them sell some corn you'd gifted them would you discourage them?

In 2009 a website called New Liberty Standard was offering to buy and sell based on the amount of electricity it had cost to mine in the previous month.

On May 10th you could buy 1,309.03 for $1

Similarly to today, on this day in 2015 we were down ~50% on the year. 2019 ~30% on the year.

Remember to zoom out, we're up 630,000% in the last decade, 365% in 2 years, and 1 BTC still equals 1 BTC. It's all good.

I think I prefer the days when it's a struggle tbh, got this in around 1 min and now I feel like I didn't get my fix 🤣

American conservatives are *not* more in favor of free speech than progressives. They are just the temporarily losing side of the culture wars, so they pretend to be. But they are a bunch of pro-censorship commies just as much as liberals. twitter.com/GovMikeHuckabee/st

Very encouraging to hear

@MattBraynard Bitcoin uses software and energy to maintain a global ledger, rather than inefficient human recordkeeping.

It uses a higher % of renewable energy than just about any other industry.

It gives people worldwide access to inflation-resistant savings and permissionless payments.

@elonmusk @satoshibaggins Unfortunately it's quite hard for a corporate entity to be completely politically neutral as it's always going to be subject to the law of the land in which it operates. Hopefully one day we'll have a widely adopted open and distributed platform that isn't beholden to such things
