Today is going to be a massive day. Time to face some consequences of my poor lifestyle choices.
Don't ever buy Ripple (XRP) crypto. Ripple is a security scam. You're buying into an unlicensed/unregistered security that will burn you. It is currently going through a massive scam pump and dump scheme that is trying to capitalise on the $GME craziness started by r/wallstreetbets.
Unpopular opinion. Bitcoin (BTC) is just a digital version of gold. Not an actual currency. The fees alone make it useless for small transactions. Therefore, it's only real use now is as a store of value or investment. It is no longer the "peer to peer digital currency" Satoshi envisioned. Only a message signed by the founders blocks will convince me otherwise.
Just spent the last few hours watching NASA shoot a group of people into space. That will never get old for me. It will always be exciting to see it happening. Space flight is absolutely the pinnacle of modern physics and math at the moment. That it is becoming more and more accessible with each year is truly amazing.
Pretty certain the election has not yet been certified. So Joe Biden is *NOT* yet the President Elect. So the only ones pushing that story are the media. Which means this is the first time in US history the MEDIA has decided and announced who the president is before the election results are even certified.
I call that a slippery slope.
The 2020 US Presidential Election will go down in history as the most corrupted and dishonest in history. It blows my mind that the Biden supporters aren't as pissed off about it as everyone else is.
Literally so anxious about the election I feel like throwing up. Have had to turn off all the feeds. I think the Dems are going to get away with stealing the election and the media is absolutely complicit.
If you haven't listened to/watched Glenn Greenwald on the Joe Rogan Podcast, you really need to do so. I think it's probably one of the best, and most honest, discussions about the state of Journalism today.
STOP calling them protests. They're RIOTS targetting innocent business owners. Looting is not a protest, it's theft. Protest doesn't involve violence.
So the #ElectionNZ results are pretty astonishing. The result is a little unfortunate, but I get it. I am more fcused on the referendum results though. I think those were more important than the General Election itself. Won't know those results till the end of the month unfortunately.
