the government is still just trying to maintain control.
But that's impossible! How will the government maintain control without the bureaucracy?
The regional governors now have direct control over their territories. Fear will keep the local currencies in line. Fear of this treasury.
bitcoins going physical would be huge.
Don't underestimate traditional currency. The ability to deliver money electronically around a planet is insignificant next to the power of the federal mint.
When I hear about bitcoin's founder I am reminded of a homeless man I met in Palo Alto in the 1990's, in his 30's or 40's. He used to stand on the street chanting weird things and you would think he was insane, which he was. But if you talked to him, you'd realize he was pretty smart too. Anyhow, he told me about how he was getting his P.H.D. in Economics from Yale, but they rejected his thesis which was basically about private currency, as his professors equated it with counterfeiting and he subsequently went semi-mad according to him. This guy was a smart homeless guy but also a little crazy, his shopping cart had various gadgets powered by car battery, and I think there was a reason he was hanging out in the valley at that time. Find him, and you will find the creator of bitcoin. Anyway, after he was all done telling me this, he looked intently at me and said, "By the way, can you spare some change? I need about tree fiddy."
Chimpanzees absolutely cannot function in human society. When they become agitated, people around them lose hands and eyes. If they're lucky.
"I don't know... It's not wise to upset a chimpanzee."
"But sir, nobody worries about upsetting a droid."
"That's 'cause a droid don't pull people's arms outta their sockets when they lose. Chimpanzees have been known to do that."
What that meant is that slaveholding states had greater representation in the US House of Representatives than if the slaves were not counted.
Well, yes, that was a short-term consequence of it. But what it actually meant, in the long term (and why it was such a briliiant tactic!) is that it encouraged states to free their slaves in order to gain even more representation — because those "other persons" would then count as 1.0 as free persons, as opposed to only 0.6 as slaves. In other words, the slave-holding states were tricked by their own greed. It's brilliant.
depends what you do with the computer. If your browsing for pictures of cats then the trackpad is the way to go, if your writing code, the nipple mouse kicks ass because your hands never have to leave the home row.
I thought it was called the clitoris mouse. Whose nipples are that small?
