not that this matters at all to anyone, except people like me who have the pet-peeve... but..

a good way to determine if you should you I or Me is to eliminate the other person in the sentence (confusion always happens because it's someone and Me/I... not when its just me/i... so if you drop the other person, and then say it, it becomes clear... ie:
what this world is coming to is for I to decide

what this world is coming to is for me to decide
now it sort of becomes obvious as to which sounds right

neat, right?

dell, as most large public companies in the U.S. , report earning in USD.. so much like a company doing business abroad in Euros or pounds, will ultimately need to convert their non-usd accounts back to USD for reporting purposes. by your argument, dell selling computers in france and generating euros would be a sham because they then call their bank to convert to USD (their reporting currency) at some point.

As things stand now, there isn't an effective method for hedging BTC exposures, and you couldn't legitimately blame them for not (at this point) wanting to take on that kind of volatility. nonetheless, them allowing payment to be made in BTC is a step in the direction of wider adoption which may have self-reinforcing knock-on effects.

p.s. yes, i know dell is no longer a public company. but in this regard (accounting and cash operations), calling them public doesn't change the calculus.

i appreciate your comment for pointing out that it is my mistake for not containing and integrating my frustration. i agree with you that spouting on the internet as an outlet is personally unproductive and a misuse of energy. (though i assure you im not much for literally or metaphorically playing the ps3. ) regardless, if you are ever so inclined, i would suggest you do even a cursory (and rational) investigation at what is quite a long list of 'conspiracy theories' that have turned out to be 'conspiracy facts'. maybe it will at least present you with some possibilities. best regards

or dont.. im continually astounded that people continue to believe what's told to them just because it comes from a tee-vee, internets, or ink on paper.. so long as the people telling the story look like me. oh yeah - those dumb russian citizens!! believe the propaganda that's administered to them by corrupt information! not like US.

i wonder what newly minted organization that will undoubtedly be called in to 'protect us' while stripping yet more privacy and liberties. (of course getting budgeted billions to do the job). oh wait - theyve already announced it. and it's the benevolent wisdom of the usual suspects that will save us all!

FWIW.. i actually agree with you on the spending side.. that its a joke, but for different reasons. im of the camp that it's a waste largely because it's too late. never mind the fact that all these allegedly 'clean-solutions' (like nat gas, whose fracking produces more of a climate warming impact than coal because of escaped methane) are mirages.

the article (well, blog, by 'a guy', whose main reference is the book that im guessing he's selling) points only to volume of arctic sea ice, which leads to a faulty conclusion. melt is the far more important feature, as surface volume can and does fluctuate as a function of many complex interactions, even in a global warming scenario.
Several recent reports, however, paint a more complex and disturbing picture where the intensifying winds are speeding up below surface currents bringing more above freezing water in contact with deep ice around Antarctica. Twenty of the ice shelves and many of the glaciers that feed them are melting from below.

in any case, i would encourage you to note more creditworthy sources, such as perhaps:
or even
which makes some more credible references.
