Hmmm, I might hint that we all pitch in $5 again at work. That was fun the last time work did that. The boss was on leave so we kept joking about not being here when he got back.

If someone rang me to tell me that I'd won $100,000,000 - I wouldn't be going to work the next day, I'd just live of my Credit Card's until the 2 weeks had passed and I got paid.. then I'd be goneskies, travelling and visiting people and then flying first class to wherever the hell I felt like

Invariably drop any vegetable I'm peeling at least once. Held onto a spud extra tight tonight to try and break the trend. Cut my finger with the peeler for the first time ever instead. Fuck.

Ouch. Hope your finger gets better quickly Yurtles.

I got a Syndicate for Powerball going. Within 5min I got like 6 people chipping in with more people chipping in on Monday... now I gotta figure out how to get the most bang for the $80 or so that the Syndicate will have.

Just got one of those spam solicitation type emails literally titled "[SPAM] Hello My Friend,"

Not entirely sure who they're targeting with that one. People who appreciate honesty but are also inexplicably trusting?

Thought I'd use up the rest of my tomato paste before it expires so I decided to make some more chilli con carne this weekend (I can't seem to get enough).

Well, the tomato paste is all mouldy already :-(

Didn't have time to pick up some more as I was cooking before heading out to see MI6 with my bro... but the chilli con carne still tastes pretty good. I may thrown in some extra spices and herbs. Either that or the Tabasco sauce is compensating.

A lot of email providers and clients will add the [SPAM] tag to the message if they are pretty sure it's spam, but not enough to block it.

Unfortunately enough people still fall for it, probably even with the tag :?

I recently checked my (originally main) pop3 email which gets hammered with spam (going to delete it soon, just trying to update everyone and Mailwasher Pro is the best email program to deal with email) and discovered an email from someone with a threat of how they had hacked some site that I had an account on and found my email and mentioned a password that I had used (slightly frightening - but easily fixable and has been fixed) and how from there they had logged me accessing some porn site (me? accessing porn... who would do that in this day and age) which allowed them to hack into my system, turn on my web cam and record me while I accessed that porn site. They then hacked my outlook address book and were going to email that video of me to everyone on my address book if I didn't give them something like 1000 bitcoin within a day of that email.

:shock:

First up, the email was a week old when I saw it, oops. As to that porn site I accessed... let's be honest, possibility but few and far between, plenty of ways to download porn rather then through some site (that's old school). Recorded me (I gather my O-Face?!?!? Image ) through my webcam... (aahhh ya lost me there, have never owned a webcam) and then hacked my outlook bookmarks (again, haven't used outlook in years upon years) and will email everyone with the contents. Go right ahead, doubt anyone (including me) would care. Image

The only thing is checking back with my password manager of all the sites that used that password, none have mentioned of any sort of hack on their site in any way in the last year... which is concerning as either they don't know or are trying to conceal it. Image

I guess time will tell if my O-Face shenanigans (minus webcam) gets out into the internet wilds!

There's been a few going around like that recently. Basically they pulled your email address and password combination from a recentish dumped list of passwords and are emailing everyone on the list trying to extort them. As long as the password has been changed you should be fine. It's a step up from their previous try when they didn't even bother with names.

Anyway you can check if your email has been compromised at some point at https://www.haveibeenpwned.com

Late as usual, but on the lotto ticket talk.
Had you brought $13 per week of Bitcoin for the last year (especially any length of time over 1 year). You would be up, depending when you started, you could be up A LOT.

Even today, I'd tell anyone who'd buy lotto tickets, to instead buy Bitcoin (BCH). Best part is you can spend it as needed, and it's never completely lost. Even if the value halves the day after you buy, you still have half your gamble, not 0.

It's also dollar cost averaging which helps with the volatility..

Dunno why so many people hate on lottery tickets, if you don't like the idea of it, don't buy them :lol: Besides, I don't buy lotto tickets because I want $10,000 .. I buy lotto tickets because I want to win millions of dollars. I'm not doing the numbers, but something tells me that would take a hell of a long time at $13 p/w of Bitcoin.

Depends when you started.. If you started in 2009-2010, you would be a millionaire.
If you started a year ago my quick napkin maths says from your $676 spent at the current price you would have ~$2400.

Edit: Should point out that's USD figures used.

If.. but I didn't, I think if everyone knew what Bitcoin, or any stock/currency was going to do we'd make it big, but most people didn't - actually I didn't even realise you could buy part of a bitcoin until today, so there you go!

That being said.. $2,400 is a long way from being retired, and who knows what the future will hold for Bitcoin? Not my cup of tea.

Considering in 2009 I think the max cost of Bitcoin was less then a cent when it first started, that $13 would have netted you a fortune for sure, especially if you held on to it till Dec 2017 where it sold for $20k each... but who did that? Thinking about it now after the fact is about the same as wanting to win the Lotto today. If only any of us had known at the time.... where's my time machine.

And there are reasons I'd still suggest it's worthwhile, especially in the current bear market.

The max cost was nothing , negligible power if you mined your own coins for shits and giggles (and just happened to keep them)and had a single solar panel. Those people were the only ones who really got rich off bitcoin, the first "omg wtf" peak was like $300 and nobody thought it would ever be more than that. Those other peaks were artificially manufactured(and hence not predictable, anyone who claims that is fooling themselves and got lucky) by professional traders with big equity backing manipulating the market, which is why there are shills making threads about crypto everywhere... they bought in and now they're desperate to get out.

Sounds exactly like standard panicked shill talk to me :lol: .

If you want to talk actual legitimate advice then people would be better off saving that $13 towards increasing their own earning potential then maintaining their current standard of living and using the increased earnings to invest long term in a safe, managed fund. Warren Buffet proved over a decade that you can't outplay the chaos of the market(and won himself a million dollar charity donation doing it), anyone who thinks they can has just bought into media or shill bullshit.

For all you that think a lotto ticket is a bad life choice..
My dad made a mistake almost as bad... took out a huge loan using our family home as collateral to play the stock market thinking he had a stock broker who'd make him a winner. Lost most of that loan.

I remember going with dad to the bank. I remember the look on the loan manager's face when dad said what the loan was for... but dad's repayments were always on time and his credit was good. That was the moment I knew my folks were hard workers but neither were good decision makers. Mum had dragged dad into a royally fucked business endeavour a few years earlier... again, thinking they could get rich by leveraging off someone who was more capable. Mum's poor decision making also extended to opting to not buy waterfront property when it was affordable down at the Gold Coast because she was afraid my bro and I would drown (um, fencing?), opting to purchase a 600m2 block instead of a 700m2 block for the same price because she didn't want to mow so much grass, and, of course, not going to scan a lump on her breast because she thought they'd go straight to a mastectomy (the sad part was that she didn't deal with it correctly and when the cancer metastasized she ended up having to go through with the mastectomy anyway).

Back to dad, I was always a bit iffy about his stock broker. I remember giving dad specs for my second PC. Dad showed it to the stock broker who said the specs were designed for gaming. FFS! I was a kid in my late teens. Of course it was designed for gaming! It's called learning to be disciplined and balanced between enjoying life and advancing in it. I kinda proved the point when I did my masters... working full time in a well paying job, getting mostly GPA 7s, and still gaming whilst doing it.

To my folks' credit though, despite all the arguments over money, their marriage hasn't broken apart. If there was ever a couple I'd use as an example of two people who learnt to tolerate each other and make a marriage work, it would be them.

Trying to make wise investments for the future seems a hopeless endeavour - might as well just hope on a dream and buy a lottery ticket.

Not here to shill, with anything there is risk.
I'm also not one who brought in at 16k and need to on-sell. Bitcoin (BCH) is not a ponzi. It's a global currency.
Anyone risking more than they can afford lose on any "investment" is a fool... including lotto.
