Is this a Backblaze ad or a Hitachi ad?
Lots of generic cola companies use the red can white cursive text.

If you know someone nearby with decent internet point an antenna at their house and use theirs. With the right antenna on each end you can get a decent connection over a mile away.
If not you could pay to have fiber run to your house and charge the neighbors for wireless access.
Iron lungs and horseshoes are still way down.
Who doesn't like a game of horseshoes? These kids with their Upset Birds. They need to go outside more.
and who wouldn't want iron lungs? These pink ones get sore after the first pack of cigarettes.
"conspiratorial" and "money making scheme" are your loaded words not mine.
And the idea that when regulators are corrupt it means "regulation wasn't happening anymore" is ridiculous. You fear business people will abuse their power without regulations but don't fear the people trusted to make and enforce regulations will. People are the problem and you shouldn't put too much faith in any of them.
If you don't believe people make money from regulations you are either uninformed or willfully blind.
In my state all license testing is done by a private company. Needless to say this state created monopoly makes someone a lot of money.
Regulations can also be used to create barriers to entry and there are plenty of well documented cases of regulations being used to keep out competition.
Also in my state they recently legalized medical marijuana but they are only issuing a very few licenses to sell it. Who's getting one? A state senators wife.
If the market rate for a 1br apartment is $2800/month no one is going to build $500/month apartments. Prices aren't going to come down until supply catches up with demand. They could approve every building permit and it would still take years to get to a reasonable level.
Well the city isn't getting anymore land so it's either build up or not at all.
Exactly, and I get why they don't want to build more high rises, it's a beautiful city, but you can't limit the supply of something in high demand and get upset when the price goes up.
Why don't they build a bunch of high rises downtown and keep the rest of the city the same?
There was a study that is often used to make the claim that "minimum wage doesn't cause unemployment" which came to it's conclusion by looking at the difference in unemployment rates between counties with different minimum wage rates despite the fact that the difference in minimum wage in these areas was negligible.
Have you heard of litecoin?
The problem is that the cheapest 1brs in SF cost $2800/month.
Build more housing.
I think he was referencing Android.
Regulation is often a money making scheme and experts can massage data to come to any conclusion they wish.
That's the thing though, this 51% pool is made up of a bunch of individuals. Getting them all to go along with your scheme would be difficult wouldn't it??
It doesn't take much to beat the US government when it comes to trusting it to not manipulate the currency: http://dollardaze.org/blog/pages/00024/usd.png
Not that I think Bitcoin is the solution, cause I don't. I think egold made more sense but the US through that guy in prison.
