I was skeptical about bitcoin back in 2010 while listening to Linux outlaws podcast and what not. Mainly because I didn’t think you’d be able to redeem the coins for anything meaningful. Had I mined back then I’d be running my own restaurant and lodge by now semi or fully retired. And just playing when I want.
Yeah back then would had been a good time, the way crypto is going now, all these scams are gonna fuck it up and cause it to be regulated. Celebs are hawking crypto like it’s their own brands of tequila, I see a bust coming.
Yeah there were a couple of other Linux podcasts I listened too during that time. I don’t listen to many of them now because they are all like LinusSexLess and Distrotard guy now. Sensational bullshit.
Basically I don’t like to see people in my backyard with Cali Oregon or WA plates. If theyve made it that far though some of the most amazing places like Idaho or Wyoming or Utah or Montanah why the fuck are they trespassing and messing around on our land. My father in law use to burry people like that for the teamsters.
I know we drifted a bit away from crypto, but maybe we should split this into it’s own topic.
I know what you’re saying though, and I am over 50 years old. Millennials are the products of the internet and technology, instant gratification at their fingertips. They really only exist online, and on apps like Tik Tok and spaces like reddit. They want everything given to them because they always had shit given to them from parents who are career focused.
I work in live production, corporate, theater, and concert. I have to live where the work is, until I don’t. I love California, but if I had a chance to live in Europe, I would. I’d love to check out Ireland for a bit. I love rural US, but you won’t find a lot of jazz and funk there to play with others. I’m not much of a “seasons” guy either, I love the Cali weather.
I think millennials need to go out into the real world and get their ass kicked by it. They think the world should revolve around them and it doesn’t. They might be a consumption force, but not a true solid electorate. They want change but they don’t want to earn it. Bernie Sanders and Ben Shapiro are doing a number to their soft heads. They need to grow the fuck up.
There is a thread on Reddit that I was reading last week that talked about gas prices, and countries like Norway and Denmark are paying like 7-9 EUR per liter, other countries are felling the bite too, the US prices are way less. Inflation is also global, it’s just the by product of a global pandemic and the emerging markets because of it. Wall Street made bank during COVID, the housing market is skyrocketing because of supply and that;s where a lot of corporate investment is going now. We really are feeling the effects of the 2008 recession, they just kicked the can down the road. Eventually the market will correct itself but it’s going to be painful for a lot of people.
