They are as hard to trace as you make them...

full usage of them is listed and tracked in the transaction lists, we know which wallet every bitcoin or other one of these currencies go to..

Use that wallet in anyway to buy something that can be traced to you, IP address logged, shipping details, email... and bang, you are found as soon as they get who ever sold you X to reveal those details, and you bet your butt they are running data mining on the wallets.

Do the ppl who write this shit have any idea of the difference in those two types of crashes?

Its like saying 'Loss of limbs was down 15%, but bruising is up 18%",
Being T Boned is fucking horrific, I've seen it happen twice, both times I was fucking surprised we didn't have ppl die, I've seen maybe 30 Tail to nose crashes at lights, worst one i was surprised that someone *was* injured.

Well, when you leave the good old soviet union, and end up in a country that is war focused, leading attack after attack all around the world, in instances against legitimate elected governments and supplying training, equipment and funding to rebel fighters with doggy ethics at best..

then your own country gets roasted for supporting rebels who opposed an illegal government overthrow...

Well I would question everything that government had to say too.

Don't blame the victim, that is unless the victim is male, then go for it.. They should apologize for what happened..
"like to apologize to everybody ... Portland, the fans, the organization. It was very embarrassing," Oden told reporters. "It was something that happened over a year and a half ago. I'm very sorry, and I'm definitely embarrassed for my family and everybody. It was a lady friend who I was having a relationship with, and it was just for her. It was definitely meant to keep private,"
"Yes Burke can be considered a victim in this situation. It’s an unfortunate development for the talented guard, but that’s why you simply keep your junk away from cameras."

If Feminists want equality, they need to either hold themselves to the same standards that society seems to hold men to, or start dealing with all issues that fall under equality, not just playing the victim card for the most amount of sympathy.

The person was caught, Im taking a guess it was already against the law.. And Id say he either a) didn't leave any evidence when the inspectors came a knocking or b) used that lovely tool of regulation the bribe..

seriously, thats such a stupid point that would only hold if the state was advising him to do it..

"Bigotry is a state of mind where a person views other groups with fear, distrust, prejudice or hatred solely on the basis of ethnicity, race, religion, national origin, gender, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or other group characteristics."

I have no fear, distrust, hatred or prejudice (prejudice - preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.)

Its not textbook bigotry, please look up things before saying such. Over the last 20 odd years, it seems we have ended up with a society where a man can not express any disconnect or negative option against a women. Pitty the same level of responsibility is never expected from women, if you end up empowering a group in society without giving them any of the responsibilities that are expected from the others in equal positions, you are going to have a bad time.
