New Book — The Satoshi Revolution
My new book, The Satoshi Revolution: A Revolution of Rising Expectations, is now appearing in weekly installments at bitcoin.com. Please come and enjoy the free book, and take part in the on-line discussion!
I used to have 5 bitcoins. I got them free back when bitcoin was first introduced. A couple of years ago I cashed two of them in to pay a dentist for some teeth-work. Then my computer crashed and upon restore I found that the backup hadn't worked and those remaining three bitcoins were gone! I tried various things for a week or so to try and recover them from the blockchain without success. A few weeks ago I heard that 1 bitcoin was going for $10,000! Ah well, easy come, easy go. It was "found" money anyway, not like something I had worked for. Still, it is a bit (heh!) irritating.
And now, for us Old People this news:
New Class of Drugs Will Help You Roll Back the Years
People die not because of old age, but diseases and Mayo Clinic experts are now getting closer to proving that senolytic drugs can cure age-related medical conditions and promote longer, healthier lives.
And this is the Mayo Clinic, folks, not some dip-shit outfit, assuming the Mayo Clinic has not become a dip-shit outfit of course. I assume it has not.
It would be nice to be young again… even somewhat young again. Which reminds me of Robert J. Sawyer’s fine novel Rollback ([Kindle], or [hardback], or [paperback]) which I recommend. Of course in that novel, a rollback ran about a billion dollars. Perhaps if this “senolytic” rollback turns out to work it will not cost quite that much, although based on my current experience with Drug Makers as an Old Person, it will not be cheap!
I see Milo Yiannopoulos has a new book (pamphlet), The AntiFa Handbook, free download .pdf from that link right there. And for that matter, his book Dangerous which the Political Correctors managed to get un-published, is now published, and you can get it from Amazon.com here in [Kindle], or [hardback].
Was that worth reading?
Then why not:
