Re: Financial/Investments

Bitcoin has gone straight up 'tarded. My god. I really don't know how anyone of sane mind could feel comfortable buying into that now. I'm also kicking myself in the ass by not purchasing a little years ago when I first learned about it. People are NUTS.

Re: Financial/Investments

It has now exceeded the largest bubble in history, the tulip bubble. It stinks to high heaven. Extremely volatile. I did buy into HIVE.V though, in anticipation of getting in on the ground floor of this crazy stuff. After consolidation for a week or so, it popped at least 20% today on it's new up leg.
What the good thing about it is that it obeys the market mob mentality for which I've read several books to understand. It isn't being manipulated like the rest of the fake market. I can discern good buy/sell points.

Re: Financial/Investments

Silver and Gold took a small dump.Probably going to grab another 20-30 ounces of silver.Although they have Kilos now that are stackable.
Crypto holdings are depressing so I dont check often.
SWPPX has been good to me.
So much ups and down with the market I think I will stick with the mutual fund and see what happens in 5 years.

The idea is really cool until you start thinking of the computer getting a glitch and your ass is strapped to a blender that will not auto rotate to earth.Its not like a car or boat when the motor goes.When this thing hiccups somebody is going to die.
Right now Im on a tight budget.Everything is being downsized or eliminated to pay off the property and build up the mutual fund account and possibly ladder a few cds for emergency funds.
Its depressing and boring at times but no mortgage,credit card debt,boat payment or vehicle payments will be sweet.

LOL...had the same image in mind except I pictured some kid/hacker in India taking control of the/all of them while they're flying around and just wreaking havoc. Not the place I'd want to be

Re: Financial/Investments

I do like the idea of it for emergency rescue/deliver of people to/from remote areas.

With redundant backup rotors its a neat idea.The computer part will be the weak link.A ballistic chute would help ease some worries too.If it was piloted instead of a computer it would ease some of my doubts about safety.
Rotor craft can auto rotate and possibly let you survive.One side goes out on that beast and you are going to be driven into whatever you hit.There is no glide ratio just drop rate unlike small aircraft.
