Kind of sad that a new currency - whose main idea was that it should be easy for private people to transfer money over the internet, free of charge - actually need these big "exchange-places" who not only takes out a charge (=makes money on your transaction) but actually becomes more and more as a regular bank. What's the point then? If the current usage continues we will have big online bitcoin-banks, who then will employ traders and whatnot, and start speculating on/with the currency, and, yes, we'll be in the same place we are now. Call it USD or BTC, same thing. It would be nice if the currency actually was so easy to use, and understand, so that people would feel comfortable to actually run the necessary software themselves, and take own - private - responsible for their.. yes.. wallets.
I never liked the guy, just saying, and he has probably done something bad with the women accusing him, but the whole thing is quite spectacular. Had it been someone else, the swedish prosecutor would gladly allow him to be questioned in the UK, and then - perhaps - called for an extradiction if something comes up that warrants that, after the interog. There's something fishy about the whole thing: the case, the women, the prosecutor, the "escape", etc.. mmm... I know that I think... Wanna hear? Ok.. here it goes: 1. Guy has megalomania. 2. Get's women drunk, tries to sleep with them, and does. 3. Women regret the thing, or tried to say no to him (see point 1). 4. Women contacts police. 5. "Shiaaat, I'm Julian Ass.. The U.S of A will hunt me down for this..." 6. The U.S. of A hunts him down. These cases, "the-woman-say-no-in-somewhat-of-a-drunk-state-and-the-guy-has-megalomani-and-the-whole-thing-gets-complicated", we have them all the time nowadays. Said thing. A no is a no, no mather how drunk you are. Disclaimer; I'm swedish. PS. By the way, I'm on Mac OS X, what happened to my CR/LF?
