I think Exxon Mobile has a stronger claim to the "Standard Oil" name, but it goes to show you how big Standard Oil was in terms of market share.
Sounds like you answered your own question as Benjamin Franklin was no longer among the living when the Ottoman Empire fell. There were clearly turkeys around in his life.
I never did get to punch the monkey. I wonder what I was really missing out on?
Oh, this is the best pizza in a cup ever
It makes me think. Are media outlets that are doing stories about bitcoin also trading in them with hopes of inflating the value?
Of course they are. Don't you know everyone is in some sort of scheme or another. Trust no one.
That's a good little consumer. Keep buying new cutlery even though the stuff you have still works.
We don't use the same cutlery for 30 years just b'cos it still works.
Unless you have a lot of fancy dinner parties and need the latest styles, or you melt heroin in your spoons or otherwise mistreat them, your silverware/cutlery should easily last 30 years.
Making the coins divisible doesn't fix the issue with having a ceiling on the number of coins. Imagine that there was a fixed amount of US dollars, but they could be divided into millionths of a cent. That doesn't deal with the deflationary issue of having a fixed amount of currency. It's just saying, we can deal with the deflation by using smaller and smaller fractions of currency to pay for things.
There will still be deflation. People will still not want to spend them, because they keep increasing in value.
You give too much credit to thieves. This is the source of many a conspiracy theory, assuming all the other players are infinitely devious and plan every possible step of a giant conspiracy.
It could just be that the thieves don't think or realize that their actions will hurt the value. If they are aware of the consequences of their actions, ~900 bitcoins at half their price (or whatever they might drop to) is still a pretty good haul for not physically having to go anywhere to get it.
Big difference in water temperatures in the two locations. There was also 20+ years of knowledge gained from spill cleanups between the two accidents.
Exactly, his life has been ruined. He's posting on
a pollutant once widely emitted by cars burning leaded gasoline. Decades ago, the United States and Europe banned leaded gas and many other uses of the metal
Do you really think the US and Europe account for the majority of vehicles?
Yes I do. It's not extremely lop sided, but there are more vehicles in Europe and the US combined than there are in China and India combined. I'd also throw all the cars in Japan under the US/Europe column for not using leaded gas.
The average person would probably not realize the cost of your camera. They don't have a feel for camera bodies and lenses and their costs.
They do know how much Google Glass costs because it has had a lot of media coverage.
Do you think you'll be taking that camera into a bar and showing it off to other people?
Thank you for posting the full text so that we can all read that wearing a balaclava in a bar is not a problem at all. UNLESS you are committing a public offense or are hiding from the law related to a previous public offense.
Basically criminals can't wear masks around town.
I think you missed a choice of just continuing to do whatever you were doing, without uploading photos of a stranger to the internet. Why would anyone do that?
That's because you're no better than any religious zealot. You hate other people because of what they believe. Even if they grew up their entire life surrounded by people telling them to believe something. You will continue to hate on them instead of reaching out a hand to try and bridge the gap. No need to try and convince people that you have some insight into the world to share with them. Just continue hating.
If you think you don't hate them, ask yourself why you get such pleasure in telling children there is no Santa Claus? That's basically what you are doing.
