So Caliscrub turned out to be my secret Santa! He gave me an absolutely wonderful batch of gifts because his heart is filled with kindness and joy!

And he also gave me 1/10th of a bitcoin. Because apparently that last sentence was a dirty lie.

Were I a good person I would cast that USB containing that bitdime into the blackest abyss, where it can no longer taint the world with its foul essence. But I am not a good person.

No.

I'm gonna try to spend this fucking thing.

This is gonna be an advencha.

I'm beginning to think Caliscrub's gift was not to you, but to the rest of us in granting the opportunity for us to see your adventure.

Given my understanding of what Bitcoins are usually spent on, you could possibly get yourself a bit-dime bag, if you catch my drift.

Edit: Also, I just got the thread title.

I feel like I'm missing something in the thread title, if indeed there is anything to get.

It's Talking Time's worst new thread title meme, following in the footsteps of DAVID BOWIE DIED and ALAN RICKMAN DIED

I advise against its further use

EDIT: alan rockman good lord

Today I saw a site where you have to buy a membership to get in. You can pay in real money or in bitcoin. This find brightened my day.

I was looking at the e-hentai forums to figure out their translation bounty stuff, and for legal reasons they don't allow bounties to be payed in actual money. But, you can convert their fake e-hentai currency into BitCoins

They are real tweets that he made but may not reflect reality. I really and truly do not believe he's dumb enough to hand money over to some rando who claims to be Kanye's lawyer or whatever.

Eh. I do think he's dumb enough, but then again I do believe he honestly though pricing a pill at seven hundred bucks would make him millionaire.

He's dumb and he's an ass, but I still feel like at this point the odds of his twitter feed being largely performance art are at like 3 to 1 at least. Like most dumb rich assholes, he's an egomaniac who enjoys getting a rise out of folks.

I don't think that terribly many people would get a "rise" out of that.

Contented sighs, perhaps, but not grumpiness.

I thought he made millions on that price hike by shorting the stock?

It's legal to short your own stock?
