There's something suss about the Seth Green story where he can't do his NFT show because someone stole his NFT.

It's not the possession of token's keys which gives him the right to use the image in the show. If he has that right at all then he still has it even if someone tricked the keys out of him.

Happy Toast did him a nice replacement though anyway.

Sounds like team lesser-evil did well at the and team greater-evil will have to take a back-seat for a while.

Well done Australia!

Hope the disappointment doesn't kick in too fast.

Wondering about how to filter the bots on the internet.

Do spam bots actually post wordle scores?

Seems like if the account is posting a wordle score every week they're probably a human?

Everyone could post their captcha every morning as a message so we know if you're a bot or not.

They say there's blood in the streets but really that stimulus pump was so hard it'd take another 15% drop just to get the back to pre-covid levels. As though the pandemic, and subsequent supply shocks, and labour-force-long-covid, and energy-wars, and sanctions, and potential nuclear Armageddon, all didn't affect prices at all.

15% drop to get to that.

I haven't gone to bed in more than a week now.

Which is pretty sucky. I like bed. I miss bed.

Cracked ribs still too much pain to lie down though so not much I can do but continue to sleep sitting up and ache and cross my fingers it'll all be healed in time for Glasto.

Humm. Curious.

When the Doge barks with quarterly gains, bitcoin-price changes direction.

Does Doge wag the Bitcoin tail?

When will Doge woof again?

@Paygan have your colleagues noticed this phenomenon? What does it tell us about the relationship between Doge and Bitcoin?

If I rent a car for a week just park it up and don't go anywhere then have I done some offsetting?

Am I green now?

My plans changed, so the car I had booked to rent for a couple of weeks I no longer need for the second week.

But if I change the booking they'll charge the new less-notice rate.

Meaning they'll charge me nearly 4x more to bring the car back early so they could rent it out to someone else than to keep it for the extra week.

Right.

Guess I'll apply for a parking pass on the estate then.

Trip to Portugal was really good fun. So many friends around, lovely trip to a beach and a large party at the villa and a trip to a waterpark.

Flew by quickly. Very glad to catch up with friends that the pandemic kept apart for so long.

Here's a couple of critters I saw, and a landscape shot.

I am now covered in insect bites and apparently have a cracked rib but it's still worth it. Probably didn't get covid at least. Coughing through the cracked rib would be no fun at all.

Last night was pretty rotten. Think I've given up on the bed. Trying to sleep sitting up on the sofa for a few days then.

I went to a water-park on Thursday. Good fun with friends heading up the stairs then sliding back down again.

The last one really winded me, face-down, tobogganing through the tube, skipping along the water at the end.

Flew home with an increasingly hurt ribs that have become more and more troublesome since.

Seems likely I cracked or at least badly bruised them.

Can't really bandage or split a chest while also disabling breathing so seems there's not much the health systems can do other than offer pain killers and suggest staying mostly upright.

Three to six weeks of that they reckon.

Hope it's the low-end, I can't go to Glasto if it's still like this in five weeks.

After the dotcom bubble, nasdaq fell by 80%.

The banking crisis dropped it’s price 50%.

The obviousness of supply-shocks and long-covid for everyone and stagflation and recession and energy-wars and possible nuclear Armageddon, has so far dropped it 20%.

It takes falling another 30% from here to go back to before-covid prices as if nothing had happened.

Does nasdaq reflect genuine world economic prospects, modulo it’s own growth?

What is a reasonable reflection of the reality of this disease and consequences?

Are the world’s prospects really going up? Will they keep doing so?

How about the Nasdaq? That’s doing okay today but is that the bottom? How well is it’s price reflecting the reality of everyone having long-covid at some point in their lives and supply shocks and stagflation and energy-wars and possible nuclear armageddon?

It dropped 30%, got artificially inflated with stimulus and and quantitative easing by 150%, and then in response to the obviousness of supply-shocks and long-covid for everyone and stagflation and recession and energy-wars and possible nuclear Armageddon, it has dropped like 20% from the inflated high.

Does that reflect reality? It was already at the top of the channel.

It is still 60% ABOVE the original market-estimate of covid’s affect before the stimulus, which would also match the bottom of the trend-line for when the world has these regular crises.

Bitcoin dominance went up about 8% on the collapse of the shit-coin, but a total of 45% hardly reflects the difference between the players in the casino and the gambling chips they use to play.

The casino remains open, people are still falling for the scammers and the shitcoins and the ponzi schemes.

Play in the casino if you want, I do. But even when you win it’s about as moral and difficult as taking money from the fish in a poker game.

Bitcoin
Crash cos of covid, then pump when the stimulus arrives and the governments push prices up with money-printing, giving from the poor to the rich.

Crashing again when the reality of everyone eventually getting long-covid dawns, and the supply shocks from it, and the inflation stimulus stops.

Then crashing again when the the stagflation and recession and energy-wars and possible nuclear Armageddon starts.

After the 2017 bubble, BTC fell by 80%.

The obviousness of supply-shocks and long-covid for everyone and stagflation and recession and energy-wars and possible nuclear Armageddon, has so far dropped it 20%.

It takes falling another 35% from here to go back to before-bubble prices,

Falling 70 to get to before covid prices as if nothing had happened.

In the “crypto” casino, another shit-coin has collapsed to zero again.

Someone noticed that they could do to Luna/UST what Soros did to the bank of England on Black Wednesday and make billions of dollars for themselves while wrecking the backers, so they did.

The rest of crypto is crashing coz of general panic. The ones which are less obviously stupid are crashing a bit less, bitcoin dominance is up. It’s happened against a generally negative background in all the markets, what with the energy-wars and sanctions and the coming supply shocks and energy price-hikes and inflation and stagnation. So the nasdaq and S&P are also dropping.

Do any of these prices reflect actual world economic prospects?
