  1. True, but those are attached and removed by the store. Clothes are not made with tags and nothing of the tag remains after purchase.
  2. Ah yes, a step towards the "you will own nothing" future that seems to be increasingly pushed by everyone who sees their fellow humans as bags of money rather than actual people.
  3. From my understanding, fees are lower (at least depending on which cryptocurrency is being used) than credit card fees and assuming those are adequate reflections of the amount of energy, oversight, infrastructure, greed, pollution, etc involved with either system, I still think cryptocurrencies have potential for replacing traditional processing with less impactful systems at some point in the future.
  4. While I agree, I think it's important to note that we're also wasting huge amounts of energy and resources on keeping the existing banking infrastructure running.
  5. Only if you're using raid0 which as I found out while trying to mine Arweave, doesn't actually help with random read/writes so aside from being bragging rights there's really no reason to use raid0. Especially cause everyday performance relies more on random read/writes than sequential read/writes so you'd actually be getting worse performance if you used raid0.
  6. Yea... I'm actually kind of glad Facebook just keeps adding more evidence against themselves. Hopefully it'll help kill them off faster.
  7. I surprisingly didn't get that much opposition from Muskrats when I criticized Elon so you'll probably be fine too. Although my wording was much nicer than calling Musk a fraud even tho he very much is one.
  8. I haven't really looked into it yet but this cryptocurrency doesn't sound particularly exciting to me since it seems to be originating from China? I'd much prefer to see something like Arweave take off as it's main feature is that anything stored on it is essentially permanent which should make it difficult for governments to censor or remove content they dislike. Obviously this will be misused to share unethical content but I think it's ultimately better for society to a system like that than to not. Also disclaimer: I was given 0.05 AR when I setup my Arweave wallet b
  9. This is probably going to be a step toward making planes autonomous.
  10. Pretty sure radiation is a major concern once you're away from earth's magnetic field. This seems to list the amount of radiation that an unshielded interplanetary trip would receive but I don't really know how to make sense of the data and don't feel like looking it up right now https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orders_of_magnitude_(radiation) If safety was taken into account, starship would use smaller and spherical tanks for their fuel rather than 2 really large tanks where 1 isn't even spherical.
  11. The only reason why those guys are fine is cause earth's magnetic field still protects them. Once you leave it (like idk, when you're going to another planet) most of your dna will get wrecked within a few months. At that point an orbital ring would make a lot more sense than a fleet of reusable rockets. As for casualties being expected with space travel, that's fair but what isn't expected is the launch facility not existing afterward. The soviet's N1 rocket was comparably sized to starship and only about 15% of the fuel exploded when it's launch failed resulting in about a 7kt
  12. I agree with most of what you said. Although from my understanding Zip2 was kind of trash and massively overvalued. It was a project from the dot com era after all and a lot of people made off with insane amounts of money for absolute shit from that bubble. Thanks for elaborating on the whole PayPal thing, I wanted to keep it brief so I glossed over a lot of the details in addition to straight up forgetting or simply not being aware of some of them. I think Eberhard is the wronged party in the entire Tesla situation but of course I wasn't there and am going off just who's version o
  13. I'm more so criticizing his narcissistic need to be the center of attention while the people actually doing the work get sidelined. Here just take a look at this:
