You think everyone falls into those 3 buckets? "Abused productive", "parasite" and "psychopath"? How about reading less conspiracy theories and getting a grip?

Not sure what the fuck your point is. You are agreeing JavaScript is a pathetic, worthless piece of shit, right?

This saved my day, I was playing it on the version it shipped as, on Windows 8 x64, and there were so many graphical glitches, and the game just completely locks up sometimes. So this is awesome. I actually like this game.

I'll work 16 hours a year for 2 million :) I think they are ok.

Topic NFL commented on NFL Players Are Underpaid For The Playoffs And Super Bowl.

[...] Lastly, I would go as far to say that NFL players are underpaid during the playoffs. There is no financial advantage for an NFL player to make the playoffs. This is because they will make less per game than in the regular season. Consequently, they are risking career-ending injury for less pay in the playoffs. I would like to see team owners give larger bonuses to players for making the playoffs; this would be an incentive to get there, and also payment for increasing their seasonal chance of injury. The in-depth math behind this argument is here. [...]

The Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard comes to mind.

At one level this parable says that if two people enter into a contract then it should be deemed as fair, even if later on other people are given a more favourable contract.

Owners should be able to do what they want with their own money.

Of course you can interpret this parable on other levels.

Normally I love your posts. However, I think you are wrong on this one. Check out these points for a counter if you like: http://dailyanarchist.com/2013/04/12/bitcoin-skepticism-and-bitcoin-fever/

Our current financial system is run by dishonest, thoroughly nasty clowns whose behaviour shocks the civilized. These clowns hate workers. These clowns hate anyone competent. There are barbarians in pin-striped suits. It is a pity the clown politicians in the UK are so enamored with them. They say the banks provide the government with lots of tax revenue. What a joke? It is just creating money from thin air and any fool can do that. I suppose the trick is to fool ordinary people creating numbers from thin air is somehow clever.

There should be an alternative.

But really there is nothing to stop someone creating Bitcoin Alternative #2, Bitcoin Alternative #3, Bitcoin Alternative #4, Bitcoin Alternative #5 and so on.

There may be a fixed number of Bitcoins, but not the number of Bitcoin competitors.

A quick Internet search has come up with.

Hey FSK, the nasty clown banksters hammered the price of gold today.

Any comments?

By the way I still think alternative currencies and commodity backed money is good.

If a nasty clown can create money from thin air, then THE PEOPLE should be able to as well.

It's only a decrease of a couple percent. As I say repeatedly, gold and silver have crushed almost every other investment over the past 10-15 years. Don't look at short-term fluctuations.

Here's a rule of thumb. If Bitcoin and Wikileaks are promoted in the mainstream media, then they aren't that subversive to State interests.

This shows the problem with the system. Although people say the number of Bitcoins is limited. There is no limit to the number of competing algorithmic/mathematical Bitcoin alternatives and competitors.

Having pointed out a flaw, there still should be a money system outside of the corrupt banking and government system.

We do not live in a free market capitalist system.

Another good rule of thumb is if freetalklive and TDV endorse something, then it is subversive to State interests.
