Bitcoin reference on the Simpsons right now

Krusty the Clown is broke and apparently he had some bad luck in the Bitcoin market.
Love the subtle reference.

Reminder: Jews have real life time machines and want me to think that particle accelerators are time machines

Helloooooooo, it's me Satan/the devil again. Thought I would post another reminder about the jews having real life time machines which they have been showing off to me using their "media" (mostly).
Here's the documentary again, which I found on amazon primevideo after already coming to the conclusion that particle accelerators might actually be time machines.
If particle accelerators are actually time machines, my mother may have actually received a tour of the large hadron collider, because she has been to both France and Switzerland during the same trip and my brother even lives in one of ze countries now. The official reason for her visit was to attend a "patent" conferance. 🤷‍♂️
Dialogue from the Ark Society level of Hitman 2 which mentions "patents" -
"You see they are sitting on some patents that will knock your socks off."
"Weather control systems."
"Recycling pollution as fuel."
"Cold fusion. You name it."
Satan is naming their time machines too. 🤣
Anyway, she visited one of zose countries again (to visit my brother) and that too without telling me. I told her not to go because of the expensive plane tickets (she has been pretending to be "poor" all these years. well, not THAT poor. "middle class" poor. 🤣). I certainly considered the plane tickets expensive. It cost more than 1 lakh rupees (1,00,000) for a two way trip (which I considered to be a lot at that time). So if I would have gone too, it would have been more than 2 lakh rupees ( rupees are also jewish apparently ). Money that could have been spent on other things (jews have been emailing Satan recently with suggestions like "spend money on experiences, not things". 🤣). Of course, now I think money and the financial system is fake and designed exclusively for Satan but only YOU will know whether that is the case or not. 🤷‍♂️
Oh, and because she was planning on going without telling me, she even agreed to give me some "mummy money" (20,000 rupees) to buy some "pyramid scheme money" (bitcoin) which I then used to buy an antminer s1. Pretty neat pyramid scheme, huh? Has cool miners and everything. 🤣
Anyway because they have time machines, jews not only know what I am "sinking about" right now, but they also know what I will be "sinking about" in the future. 🤣 Check my previous posts and reminders about their mass surveillance tech if you don't know what I am talking about (once again assuming/pretending that everyone in the world doesn't already know who I am and already know about the existence of time machines and other advanced tech). 🤷‍♂️

Moar Satanic Rambling

I mentioned amazon above. They recently VERY actively participated in the "Q psyop" by showing the following riddle to Satan/me in a "riddle quiz" (or whatever you want to call it) that they had in the "fun zone" section of their app. Here's the riddle as I remember it.
"I usually follow Q. But not in QATAR. I come twice in queue. What letter am I?"
I bet they were hoping that I would correctly answer it, but I unintentionally answered it incorrectly as "E". Otherwise it was supposed to be "U". You know, "QU". "Q you". Calling me Q. Q from LGBTQ. 😐
Anyway, I didn't even look at the list of answers properly and had very quickly decided that the answer was "E" because in my mind I imagined the letters going from left to right (in a queue 🤣) and the answer would have been "E" in that case. The letter "E" would have been following "Q". By the way, there is no "E" in any of my real life names but there is one in "JEW". 🤣 Maybe that's why a jewess was pretending to be a bot and other jews were referring to her as EBOT in the Q research 8chan board (mentioned in one of my old posts). They were spelling "ABOT" as "EBOT". 🤣🤷‍♂️
I am also guessing that "QATAR" in the above riddle is supposed to mean something since it was in all caps. "Q a rat" maybe (country names are fake apparently, as I mentioned in my previous post)? Like the rat from the movie Ratatouille? 🤣 Even my mother was once mispronouncing Qatar as "Quatar", and I corrected her saying it's QAtar and not QUatar. But yes, once again, "QU" or "QUA" (Q you, A). 😐 Like I mentioned in my previous post, I now believe she is also a "psyop" participant and she continues to actively participate in the psyop.
Just recently she threw away a pack of masala powder just to make me angry. I had already started cooking when I realized that the pack was missing. At first I thought she may have just hidden it, so I searched everywhere but when I couldn't find it I realized she had mostly likely thrown it away. I am not talking to her at all right now (for obvious reasons 😐) but did manage to indicate that I was angry because of the missing masala powder (not that she didn't already know. it was part of the "plan". trust the plan. 🤣) and she eventually admitted that she had thrown it away, apparently because the pack was "completely open". There were long expired packs of various masala powders lying around (still are) that were actually "completely open" that she didn't bother to throw out but she threw away a brand new pack that I had bought. 🤷‍♂️
Should also mention that everytime I brought up the "psyop", her dialogue was something like, "Internet people are tricksing you-internet people are tricksing you". 🤣🤷‍♂️ "Internet people" are "tricksing" me apparently. 🤣 Well, I am translating but she was using the word "tricks". 🤷‍♂️
I believe I have also figured out what one of my real life names actually means. One is supposed to be calling me an "objectophile" (like "QU". "Objectophile U".) and the other one (the one in my birth certificate, ID cards, etc.) is supposed to mean something like "You are a fool/simpleton, devil". Any jew here willing to confirm? 🤣
Anyway, as jews already know, I think it's okay to be a fool/simpletion but not okay to be evil. Who goes to hell? A fool/simpleton or someone who is evil? <- "Q" style questions. 🤣
As I mentioned in my previous posts, I believe ALL jews are evil. Especially if all of them indeed know who I am and have been watching me all these years. 😐 Someone was even posting on 8chan saying something like, "we are not evil. promise...". Watch a compilation of everything you have done to Satan all these years if in doubt about the fact that you are evil. I am assuming you have recordings. Or did the jewesses who run the jew world delete them from the face of the Earth and are now claiming that some of the things that I have been "sinking" about never happened?
Other than that they have continued to do shit like male genital mutilation and abortions despite having time machines and knowing in advance that Satan will be anti-male genital mutilation and anti-abortion. Assuming that abortion is real of course. I haven't seen it with my own eyes after all (just like my mother says that she DOES NOT believe that god exists just because she hasn't seen god with her own eyes. heard the same thing from others. 🤣). I even remember someone posting pro-abortion shit in the 8chan Q research board. Something along the lines of "if you want to buy a gun, do it. your choice, pro-choice...". How about "if you want to do the apocalypse, do it. your choice pro-choice", hmmm? Besides, jewesses who have had abortions could have "chosen" to not have sex. If abortions are real, I am guessing there are many jewesses out there who have had abortions by the time they were 30.
Satan is 30 years old in his current human form and is a virgin. 🤣 Even the "Virgin" brand is referring to Satan. Yes? Also figured out recently that the "Coca Cola" brand is referring to Satan also. Bought an "(allocacoc)[] powercube" and found the name odd initially but realized that it was Coca Cola spelled backwards with an extra "L" and knew it was supposed to mean something. Later saw one of those "coke and mentos" videos on youtube again and finally realized what it is supposed to mean. "Coca Cola" is supposed to be "A Cola Coc". "Cola" is supposed to be "কলা". It's supposed to be referring to Satan's dick. That's why there were those "muh dick-muh dick-muh dick" posts on the 8chan Q research board. Yes? 😐
Anyway, if the "Coca Cola" brand was indeed established in the year stated in wikipedia then it would seem that the jews have had time machines for the past 100 years at least.
I have also realized that "muh dick" is also partially mutilated and my mother lied to me about that also. Claimed to have taken me to the nurse because she noticed "pus" was coming out of my dick and the nurse did some "cutting". Said that there would have been "कष्ट" after marriage otherwise. Had no idea at the time what she was talking about, but perhaps she meant that a lesbian jewess might have found my unmutilated dick "ugly"? 🤣 Watch that "Nip/Tuck" episode#Episodes) and that "South Park" episode defending male genital mutilation if you have no idea what I am talking about.
What if jews force their senior citizen parents to get a face lift, nose job, liposuction, or whatever without anaesthesia? And say shit like "we are only doing it to make you look beautiful so that you don't have any "कष्ट" if you decide to get married/remarried or so that you are invited to more lemon parties"? 🤣 They can use their mind control tech to wipe the memory of the surgery afterwards if necessary (or use roofies if they are real 🤣). Can even invite people to witness the surgery and they can say "mazel tov", "oy vey", or whatever it is they say after a "bris".
Now, I don't know if "brises" are real because I haven't seen one with my own eyes. I have however seen a "fully mutilated" dick when I was a kid (3rd grade). It was in the school (a different school, not the one I mentioned in my previous post) bathroom which was just a "shed" with a drain in it (was the female bathroom also just a shed with a drain in it? There was even a South Park episode about school bathrooms but in their case the bathroom wasn't just a "shed" now, was it? 🤣). Anyway, I assumed that I had seen a catheter "wrapped" around his dick as I had heard about catheters by then but did not know what they looked like or how they worked. I asked the kid why his dick looked different assuming that he would confirm my theory that he was peeing using a catheter. But he replied saying that it's because he is "muslim". It was an odd explanation I thought, and even asked my mother that day and she didn't bother to explain it either.
Even after that incident I didn't know about "male genital mutilation" for years. But eventually "real time" told me. But even then I didn't know that even my dick was partially mutilated but "real time" has now told me about that too. 🤷‍♂️
Well, jews were also posting a "render" (I think) of an unmutilated dick on 8chan and someone on voat replied to a comment of mine saying something like "No one actually knows what an unmutilated dick looks like" which I only recently saw. Could have just said something like, "Your dick is mutilated too, Satan" but whatever. 🤷‍♂️

Video games

Already mentioned a video game above, but will be mentioning moar video games here under this heading. As I mentioned in my previous post, they are also using their time machines when making video games. I also mentioneded that I could be living in a simulation for all I know and you could all be NPCs. Later I remembered a video game that I didn't play just because the story/plot had "simulation" in it. I then checked out the plot again on wikipedia and noticed that it mentions "time travel" also. 🤣
The game's loyalty missions impact the ending of the story: if a number of these are not completed, the Boss makes plans for the Saints to take over more planets and expand their new empire; however, if all are completed, the Saints learn that they can restore Earth using time-travel, discovering that Zinyak captured several historical figures and placed them in suspended animation. The Boss soon discovers one of them to be 19th century writer Jane Austen, whom they are a fan of, and who reveals herself as the narrator of the game's story once she is awaken her from stasis.
There's also the following DLC where Satan is mentioned. 🤣
I have both the game and the DLC in my Steam library but have never played them. I bought them during a sale or something. They were being sold as a bundle (Humble Bundle maybe) but I was only interested in Saints Row The Third.
I should also mention The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The game has some cannibal witches who eat kids (they ate grown ups too; they didn't discriminate. 🤣). And the witches were shown to possess "mass surveillance" capabilities, but they were using magic. They would nail human ears to trees or something. Satan chose to free that tree spirit the first time he played that mission but later noticed the tree spirit did not get rid of those "ladies" for some reason. Plot hole?
Anyway, I read right here on /conspiracy that jews apparently eat aborted babies. It was the "Robert David Steele AMA" I believe.
Were you jews hoping to tell me that you don't really eat aborted babies and I only believed it because I am gullible? There was even a South Park episode recently where there was the dialogue "well, we don't eat them...", but they were talking about cows. Were they actually talking about aborted babies? There was also the dialogue "...nobody wants to do it...". Nobody wants to do abortions but do them anyway because jewesses auto-magically get pregnant (like Satan used to think when he was a kid)? Also, there is a dialogue in a "Penny Dreadful") episode where a witch who does abortions and is called a "cut-wife" says something like "this village needs its cut-wife...". Why did the village need a "cut-wife"? Because the jewesses living there were auto-magically getting pregnant even though they didn't have sex? 🤔
Unforuntately for the jewesses who run the jew world (who are no doubt like those "ladies" of the wood), there are also stories like (Hansel and Gretel)[]. Even my own mother used to try and scare me when I was a kid saying things like "juju buris (বুড়ি) kidnap kids in burlap sacks..." or something. 🤷‍♂️

TV Shows

Already mentioned TV Shows above, but will mention more here.
I recently remembered the cartoon "Pinky and the Brain" and realized they are also supposed to be depicting Satan. Check out the opening theme and the lyrics -
They even show Saturn crashing into Earth during the part where they sing "by the dawning of the sun, they will take over the world". 🤣 There's also "to prove their mousey worth, they will overthrow the earth...". 🤣 Satan is dinky apparently. 🤷‍♂️
At the end of the opening theme there is even the name of an openly-jew jew mentioned ("Steven Spielberg"). If you are a "poor" jew who doesn't know about the existence of time machines and other advanced tech that "rich" jews have, maybe you can ask him what he knows.🤷‍♂️
Also mentioned in my previous posts that I am also supposed to be Jesus and there is this scene from an episode of The Simpsons -
The scene was actually censored when airing on a local TV channel and I even mentioned it to a desi jewess who was "sent" to chat with me. Looking at "muh chatlogs" is how I remembered that scene. 🤣
The jewess was trying to pretend to be psychic or something. She was even telling me about my future which I had totally forgotten about. I did remember that she asked me if I believe in "astral projection". I said no, so she dropped the subject. Otherwise I am guessing she would have claimed to be able to see me using "astral projection" and not because all jews are watching me like Truman from The Truman Show.
I also remember another jewess who was "sent" to chat with me and she was asking me if I had read Harry Potter and knew what a "prophecy" was. When I said yes and used "भविष्यवाणी " to define "prophecy" she dropped the subject. 🤣 She was claiming to be studying to be a psycho-logist and was repeatedly asking me "How do you feel-How do you feel". 🤣 I had no idea what she meant at the time, but now I know (thanks to "real time") that it's just something that psycho-logists say. 🤣 No doubt that was the first thing she learnt at "psycho-logy school". 🤣 Satan is a psycho apparently. 🤣🤷‍♂️
Oh yes, I was talking about The Simpsons. I remember seeing posts right here on /conspiracy speculating whether The Simpsons creators know about the existence of real life time machines because many episodes seem to depict future events. Well, no need to speculate any longer, they do have real life time machines. But it's not just The Simpsons creators. It's all jews. Be it Hollywood, Bollywood, Tollywood, etc. Maybe you can even ask them during comic-con or something if you are a "poor" jew and do not know about the existence of real life time machines.
I now also believe that the boat painting in The Simpsons living room is based on something that Satan painted not long after the shit stick incident. After the shit stick incident that I mentioned in my previous post, my mother agreed to reconnect our TV cable connection on the condition that I attend a religious summer school. That's where I painted a ship which was supposed to be like the ships from Assassins Creed Black Flag. It was supposed to be an art "class" but there was only one and they were like "paint whatever you want to paint". Were they expecting Satan to paint something Satanic? 🤣 I remember the kid next to me was painting an alien. Large sheet of paper but he was painting a small alien in the middle of it leaving the rest of the sheet blank. 🤷‍♂️
Anyway, in case of The Simpsons, the painting is that of "a boat" (wink-wink-nudge-nudge?) but it's very similar to the ship painting that I painted. If you really do not know about the existence of time machines and other advanced tech maybe you can even ask the creators of The Simpsons (in the next comic con or something). You can say something like "a conspiracy nut on /conspiracy claiming to be Satan was also claiming that you have real life time machines and the boat painting is based on something he painted at a religious summer school after a shit stick incident and that you got rid of the Apu character because he wanted The Simpsons cancelled because he got the impression that you were being anti-Trump and pro-Hillary...". 🤣🤷‍♂️
Anyway, there was even a kid at the above mentioned summer school who was pronouncing "cheat codes" incorrectly. He was pronouncing "cheat" as "kheat". Was he acting like the actors from Truman Show and reading his lines from an "eyephone" teleprompter? Or was it intentional? 🤷‍♂️ By the way, the downstairs neighbours' kids were also there in that summer school and they would have at least heard the shit stick incident. Yes? I believe they also knew about the "psyop" and could have told Satan but didn't. How are you jews trained to participate in the "psyop" anyway? Are you sen't to special "psyop schools"? 🤣🤷‍♂️
In one of my previous posts that was deleted by a mod, a jew had commented asking me whether I was a little girl because I had used so many "emojis", so let me mention the cartoon "The Grimm Adventures of Billy and Mandy" also. All three of the main characters are also supposed to be depicting Satan, including Mandy. Check out her devil horns like hairstyle. 🤣
There is also this song from the show.
It has the lyrics "if at first they think it's strange, they wont think twice once I've eaten their brains".
Jews thought that if Satan thinks all the evil shit they do is "strange", Satan wont think twice after they manage to figuratively eat his brain? They were also posting this image on 8chan. Yes, Satan has been "fucked by psyops" because physical wounds heal apparently. Not that jews haven't caused physical wounds also but they always end up healing. 🤣


Scene from the movie "My Favorite Martian" referring to Satan's zipper incident -
Was four or five years old when it happened. The zipper of the shorts that I was wearing, got stuck on my partially mutilated foreskin. I was crying in pain even though there was no bleeding. Jews most likely have a recording of this incident also (if they haven't deleted). Later the same nurse who most likely mutilated my dick was telling me to wear underpants as if I could conjure them out of thin air.
I didn't wear underpants back then and didn't even for years after that incident. Now I wear "square" underpants, which is why there is "Spongebob Squarepants" (I am also supposed to be Patrick). 🤣
Anyway, jews know about the zipper incident too but are continuing to perform male genital mutilations anyway. Yes? Perhaps they are like, "another benefit of having a fully mutilated dick is that you don't have to worry about zipper issues". 🤣🤷‍♂️


Jews are using their time machines even in the music they produce.
My motorcycle that I mentioned in my previous post was seized by the cops (I used to think that the local cops are useless but now I think that they are just fake) using "Coronavirus" as an excuse. And when recently looking at the details of the "Foghat" album "The Best of Foghat", I noticed the song with the title "Third Time Lucky (First Time I Was A Fool)". I have been to the cops twice to get back my seized motorcycle. First time I went was on April 1 (april fools day). I was planning on not going a third time and just let the fake cops keep my motorcycle. After all, they are jews, the motorcycle was made by jews and even the money I used to buy the motorcycle was "jew money". And I noticed that there is also the song with the title "Take It Or Leave It". 🤣 Oh, and now I see that there is also one with the title "Easy Money". 🤣
The name "Foghat" itself is most likely referring to how Satan's helmet gets foggy sometimes. Yes? 🤔🤷‍♂️
Anyway, wasn't able to pass much time with the bike anyway. It was only making me spend fake jew money on fake expensive fuel. Not to mention the trips to the service center. It needs servicing every three months apparently. So, I am thinking I will leave it with the fake cops. What do you jews think? Is it a good plan? Trust the plan? 🤔
Oh yes, the second time when I went to the cops, they gave me a phone number and asked me to call it (I didn't) and also gave me a fake name when I asked for one. Which I now think is supposed to mean "You are Satan, pal", kinda like that South Park episode about mormonism ("moronism"; Satan is a moron apparently; Amaron) where Cartman was like "My name is Yura, Yura Fag". 🤣 If yes, then here is a message for the fake cop who gave Satan the fake name, "Satan is not your pal, gal". 🤣
Yes, the second time the fake male cops were gone and there were only two jewesses. The male cops are in "isolation" apparently. 🤣 I was wondering if I should have shown them that clip from The Simpsons where Chief Wiggum says something like, "look at my badge. cash bribes only..." because most of them are fat or chubby. And because I used to think that all the local cops were good for was scaring and threatening people and asking for bribes. 🤣 The second time there was only one male cop (a gatekeeper or something, who got brave and was rude to Satan) and this time they made sure that it was not a fat one. 🤣 Anyway, I can make fun of the fake fat cops (many of whom have "pregnant" bellies. men and women are equal so men are also able to get pregnant. those cops were actually pregnant. yes? 🤣) just by "sinking" about it. How cool is that? 🤣
I also remember that South Park episode now where they were calling bikers "fags"). Original air date is 2009 whereas Satan bought his bike in 2019. So yes, you can ask them about the existence of real life time machines and other advanced tech also. 🤷‍♂️
Recently Satan has been passing the time "code monkeying". That's why the 8chan administrator is called "code monkey", yes? I have been playing with "CodeIgniter" and there is "psyopy" content even in the "CodeIgniter" documentation.
use CodeIgniter\Controller;
class Helloworld extends Controller { public function index() { echo 'Hello World!'; }
public function comment() { echo 'I am not flat!'; } }
Yeah, the world is not flat apparently but since I haven't seen it with my own eyes I probably should not believe that it's round. Yes? 🤣🤷‍♂️
Well it doesn't really matter if the world is round or "flat". What matters is that if everyone in the world knows me then unfortunately for you, you are all evil. And it's actually more unfortunate for you if you are not NPCs. You know what I am sayin'?
By the way, is Satan's "Mann ki Baat" being broadcast to everyone in the world uncensored or should he write down more of his "mann ki baat"? 🤔 Like how he has been "sinking" to Ubisoft whether the "apocalypse" comes under "everything is permitted". Feel free to comment here with your reply Ubisoft.
Mind-wiped Satan now thinks total apocalypse (get it? total apocalypse. kinda like total eclipse but apocalypse instead of eclipse) is necessary and since he is addicted to TV shows, movies, video games and the internet apparently (all jew media), it would be the unselfish thing to do (assuming it's up to him to do the apocalypse). Yes?
Satan has been trying to be "sober" though. No TV shows, movies or video games for the past two months. Did not renew his 100mbps internet connection either. Let's see how long the lockdown can continue. 🤣🤷‍♂️
It's Saturday and Satan managed to spend hours writing the above post. 🤣

    5. Jonathan Toomim: "BCH will not allow block sizes that are large enough to wreak havoc. We do our capacity engineering before lifting the capacity limits. BCH's limit is 32 MB, which the network can handle. BSV does not share this approach, and raises limits before improving actual capacity." (253 points, 255 comments)

PGA: No Frills DFS Data - Bernhard With A Vengeance & RBC II: Satoshi's Island

Click here for an introduction of me and the PGA model
Masters Recap
So happy for Tiger. So happy the bookmakers lost millions as well.
My Bernharding Question
So fitting that just like the terrorists in Die Hard, Bernhard too is a German and last week he terrorized me. You may recall how much difficulty I had trying to incorporate someone like him in my model. And then, at one point he was putting together a pretty nice run and it made me think all the more about my model. It is normally nice to have a distraction when you have to look at these mementos of failure for 4 days. But this didn’t help, it only made things worse. I had horrible lineups and this geriatric German was pissing all over my model.
I didn’t just have horrible lineups in my all Hideki all the time strategy. In a week where I chased binary outcomes, I got the 0 instead of the 1. But to make matters far worse, in all my hype for the Masters I had registered a whole bunch of tables throughout the week (and would regularly register for more as they became available). I’d be doing some baseball stuff and figure “hey let’s see what new golf tables are available.” I was kind of on autopilot and hadn’t realized just how many exactly that I did register and by the time I realized what I’d done, it was too late.
If I had a chance I’d still roll out Hideki all over again, but would have cut back my cash investment a good 80% at least. The worst part of it is it mostly went poof in 10 mans, which are the scourge of DFS. It doesn’t matter how good you are, those things are viper pits always full of the top players. In this instance it didn’t matter who I played but there are so many spots out there to distribute bankroll that really nobody should ever play 10 mans unless it’s veteran restricted. I will happily create $109 h2hs every baseball slate and sometimes go up to $500 but I won’t be caught dead in most $1 10 mans. Golf is much softer than a sport like baseball, so I do venture in 10 mans there, but still, I shouldn’t have committed so much so foolishly into such a competitive field. What makes 10 mans even more poor a decision is there isn’t any upside to them with only 9 other people so you’re arguably taking on 3-5 of the guys who’ll finish top 10 in the 100 man yet in format with only 3-5 pay slots. It’s just dumb and this was an expensive lesson. No more 10 mans for any denomination that I wouldn’t feel comfortable tipping into a g string. Well… unless there’s overlay :)
I also want to clarify, this wasn’t results oriented. If I won them all I’d still feel the same. I felt that way the moment after lock when the amount in play was suddenly shoved in my face. I invested that much, in 10 mans, against arguably the best 7 or 8 golf dfsers out there… dumb dumb dumb. I still haven’t finished my bankroll long read, but not playing 10 man’s is going to be a key ingredient.
But back to Bernhard. After much agonizing asking myself what he was worth and whether or not he was playable, I realized how foolish I was being. One of the things I learned early on in my other projections is not to get too caught up in the details. Don’t try to project for a backup quarterback coming in mid game. Don’t bother trying to analyze and guess which random receiver is going to come off the bench for 2 plays and catch a Drew Brees TD. Don’t bother projecting for TE after the top 10 (and even that is pushing it).
The daily nature of my bread and butter which is baseball let’s me better roll with the variance. You see the guys you didn’t like pop homeruns and the guys you love go 0/5 and realize that on an individual slate nothing matters. I don’t have to play Mike Trout despite that my projections say he’s the best play every single night. Likewise, if I just feel like playing the 4th highest projected starter then so long as he’s not significantly more expensive than the other 3 I should go ahead and have at it. Like today, Matt Adams wasn’t all that high on my projections. I didn’t care, I liked his raw HR equity and place in the batting order and I played him anyway. Projections are guidelines and nothing more. In baseball, my projections are the invisible hand that influence the path but don’t shape it. It’s like this for me in the sports where I really excel like baseball and football, my work give me nothing more than very soft guidelines. They help me make better decisions, they don’t control my destiny.
I was letting my golf projections control my destiny. I was stressing out over giving the Bernhard question a DFS solution that I didn’t take a step back for perspective. Bernhard was an all time great, but for DFS he doesn’t matter. He’s that backup quarterback. So why am I even remotely interested in trying to project for someone not even on my player pool radar. I shouldn’t even have someone like Bernhard available for my optimizer to troll me like that.
To Bernhard. I can’t thank you enough for helping me smash the pedestal I put my golf model and projections upon. It was the pain and torture you gave me trying to figure out how I should project someone like you where I realized that very little of what I am doing actually matters. From this point onwards I’m not going to be adhering to such strict lineup construction.
Thank you Bernhard, prost!
Now that we’ve dealt with ze Germans, on to the Japanese.

Return of Satoshi
This is it, this course here is the beginning of my journey down discovering how OWGR is such a useless system. All thanks to Mr. Bitcoin himself, Satoshi Kodaira. This may have been Satoshi’s Island but likely won’t be again. That’s why the returning champ has vegas odds of 150:1 against him winning. If you guys love course history narratives and OWGR then that’s the most profitable bet imaginable.
Actually, I want to do a replacement ranking system based off FIDE and call it TIGER. I’m dead serious, if anyone wants to help contribute to that please get in touch, would love some collaborators and not even sure where to start.
Taking a lesson from Bernhard, this as far as we’ll go with Bitcoin.

The Original Player Pool
These are all the players my optimizer spit out. As always, in order of exposure. It’s a much wider pool this week – a lot of that has to do with course history conflicting with traditional performance indicators. It also has a lot to do with many of the players having insufficient data.
Tommy Fleetwood Byeong Hun An Dustin Johnson Jim Furyk Corey Conners Ryan Moore Luke List Lucas Glover Webb Simpson Jason Kokrak Matthew Fitzpatrick Francesco Molinari Adam Long Sungjae Im Joel Dahmen Luke Donald D.J. Trahan Patrick Cantlay Jordan Spieth Kyoung-Hoon Lee Rory Sabbatini Charles Howell III Ollie Schniederjans Ian Poulter Kevin Streelman Wyndham Clark Branden Grace Kevin Kisner Keith Mitchell Cameron Champ Eddie Pepperell Bud Cauley Denny McCarthy J.T. Poston Colt Knost Alex Noren Brian Stuard Justin Harding Whee Kim Troy Merritt Trey Mullinax Matt Wallace Satoshi Kodaira Tom Hoge Scott Stallings Ben Silverman Xander Schauffele
I was very surprised this wasn’t an all DJ build. DJ is head and shoulders above the rest in my rankings. I think a lot of this is price oriented. Either way, I’m pleasantly pleased by that because I have a feeling he’ll be so highly owned this slate I’d prefer to keep him mostly confined to cash and single entry.
Really don’t like how much it likes Moore, don’t have a good reason. But taking a page from ole Bernhard, I won’t be playing nearly as much of him as it recommends as a result. Same goes for Long and Trahan.

What? No Reavie?
I couldn’t believe it, my model that I jokingly referred to as the Chez Reavie model when I started this blog 100% faded Chez Reavie, someone it usually really likes. It doesn’t even necessarily have any problems with him either – it thinks he’s alright in the ranking.
This is actually an incredibly nice development. It really shows that player stats are fluid enough that the model won’t just get locked in on certain things all year. Much like I was locked in on Ilya Kovalchuk and Anze Kopitar most of the early NHL season, I just couldn’t get past their glory days and kept on believing the breakout was around the corner. At least Joe Thornton held up.

Final Player Pool
Corey Conners
Jim Furyk
Ryan Moore
Lucas Glover
Webb Simpson
Sungjae Im
Byeong Hun An
Tommy Fleetwood
Dustin Johnson
Joel Dahmen
Adam Long
Luke List
Charles Howell III
Cameron Champ
Francesco Molinari
Jason Kokrak
Wyndham Clark
Kyoung-Hoon Lee

This is a nice distribution, the top guys are all about 50% and then the others pop up here and there. I may make a few pivots (Cameron Champ, Wyndham Clark) and still haven’t chosen my cash lineup yet but I’m pretty happy with this build – which should be pretty low ownership at the top I’m hoping.

Good luck everyone

Collection of my personally made memes and pictures

I will compile a list of information here that will be useful to understand more of what's going on in this world. Feel free to suggest anything you think would contribute or just simply post it in the comments.

I need to clarify what I see my role as. My role is not to spell everything out for you and tell you what to think. I mostly see my role as basically a punch to the face of what most people think they know about this world. Whatever you think you know, its most likely a lie, because this entire world is nothing but layers and layers of lies stacked on top of each other. You never had a chance to not believe lies unless you actively fought against them and sought out truth instead which is something most people just simply don't have the time or energy for and understandably so. My job is too shake you out of your lies and if that makes you want to know more, then you will want to seek more but that has to be your own journey or else it won't make nearly as much of an impact as it needs to. Consider me the guy pointing his finger at things that need to be looked at more closely and offering a perspective that maybe you hadn't considered before. Then go look where I pointed with a new perspective and see where it leads you. If you don't care enough to do that then I don't care enough to explain things to you.

First I will list the order I recommend you read my personally written stuff since there is no way to organize it on Reddit. If you are relatively new to this kind of information, there are things you should know and read before you read others.
  1. Exposing Trump: The Truth Behind His Deception and the Psychology Behind his Narcissism
Start here with the basic psychology of Trump explained and the rest will make more sense. Even if you don't believe in any of this other stuff, learning his psychology will help you out tremendously in understanding his actions and motives.

  1. The Last President, The High Priest of Fraud and The Little Horn Trump

​This lays out my basic argument for him being the "little horn" from the book of Daniel. Thought to be the Antichrist but it's possible he is just a major End Times figure that allows the true Antichrist to come into power. Only time will tell.

  1. The Statue of Liberty, Mystery Babylon, Freemasonry and The New Roman Empire / Fourth Reich

This talks about America/New York being Mystery Babylon in the Book of Revelation and what that means. I also connect the dots between Trump, Russia and the Scottish Rite Freemasons along with a 30 year old prediction from 1988 by the Economist magazine about a one world currency being implemented in 2018 by way of Bitcoin.

  1. Ancient Egypt, Kabbalah, Pepe The Frog and the Spear of Destiny

Here I talk about where all these secret societies originated from, how a prophecy from the book of Revelation about unclean frog spirits gathering the army of the Antichrist came true with the election of Donald Trump and the specific order of Free Masonry he belongs to. Does the spear that killed Christ play into this as well?

  1. The End Game for the Real Elites and How They Connect to Trump, Putin and Israel: The Chabad & Kabbalism

This ties all of these things together, Trump, Putin and Jewish Kabbalah. The Chabad Jews being the common link. I mainly reference many different articles pointing out these links and discuss how their end goal of the enslavement of what they call the "goyim" (Non-Jews) is going to come about.

  1. Trump Tower: The Inverted Black Obelisk

With the ties of the Jews and Kabbalah to Ancient Egypt as well as the secret societies obsession with it, this all had to tie to that place eventually. This explores how it's tied to Trump

  1. Trump's Space Force, NESARA and the Mark of the Beast

This is mostly Bible related to the very end of whats suppose to be right before Jesus comes back. I talk about the theory that aliens will come and act as our saviors only to enslave us with something that's called the NESARA act and how that relates to the Mark of the Beast.

  1. Jewish Kabbalah, Secret Societies and the Antichrist: The Who, How, What and When.

To really tie this all together, you really need to read and understand the information in this article/video. Especially if you are a Christian and believe Yahweh to be God and the Father of Jesus.

All of my other OC should make a lot more sense after understanding the information in the aforementioned posts.

  1. Tisha B'AV, 9/11 and the Two Pillars That Hold up This World

Learn how 9/11 was a ritual symbolizing the destruction of the 2 Jewish temples as a way to make way for a new world. Creating order out of chaos.

  1. 17: Q- The Winged Serpent, King Solomon & The Secret Leader of the Freemason's

Here I talk about the dangerous cult centered around Trump that has people believing that he is this secret leader of the army against evil at the behest of God himself, how this relates to King Solomon and a dragon with a name that starts with Q.

  1. The Lord of the Rings: Saturn and the Black Cube

Saturn worship is at the root of the Abrahamic religions. Saturn is the transmitter of the matrix we are all trapped in. Saturn is the Lord of the Rings. The Star of David and the black cube are 2 of it's main symbols, along with the Scythe and Sickle of the Grim Reaper.

  1. The Two Pillars That Hold Up This World and The Triforce

Here I delve a little bit into the significance of the "2 pillars" and why they need to be destroyed (or unified) and how the number 911 is encoded in the very symbol for the Freemasons itself.

Online Books:

The Curse of Canaan

Indeed, the great movement of modern history has been to disguise the presence of evil on the earth, to make light of it, to convince humanity that evil is to be ''tolerated, '' ''treated with greater understanding, '' or negotiated with, but under no circumstances should it ever be forcibly opposed. This is the principal point of what has come to be known as today's liberalism, more popularly known as secular humanism. The popular, and apparently sensible, appeal of humanism is that humanity should always place human interests first. The problem is that this very humanism can be traced in an unbroken line all the way back to the Biblical ''Curse of Canaan.'' Humanism is the logical result of the demonology of history. Modern day events can be understood only if we can trace their implications in a direct line from the earliest records of antiquity

The Spear of Destiny

The Spear of Destiny: the occult power behind the spear which pierced the side of Christ is a bestselling 1972 popular occult book by the anthroposophist writer Trevor Ravenscroft (1921-1989), published by Neville Armstrong's Neville Spearman Publishers. Ravenscroft claimed that the book was based on research "by using mystical meditation" and on the papers of the Austrian anthroposophist Walter Stein given to Ravenscroft by his widow. Ravenscroft originally claimed to have met Stein, but later only claimed contact through a medium with Walter Stein's spirit.

Flying Serpents and Dragons: The Story of Mankind's Reptilian Past

The Odd Trump

Trump and Clinton: The Victorian Novel

"The Odd Trump" is a charming Victorian novel published by George J. A. Coulson in 1874. The "odd trump"' is not a winning card held by one of the characters, but is the hero himself. The hero is the old-fashioned hero of novels of a century ago—a strong, brave, tenderhearted, and honest young man, who opens the ball by rescuing the heroine from a watery grave.

(Noobish question) Could Mark have discovered a glitch/malfunction in the protocol?

I am not a dev and have no way of judging myself. One thing did make me curious though: In the past days all statements were thoroughly investigated, except for the "threat to bitcoin in general". Why would he be worried about bitcoin in general if this was lost private keys, a gox-internal software malfunction, plain theft,.... He must either think that the loss/theft of all these coins will make people move to another coin, or it´s something we don´t know (yet).
So could it be that Mark discovered something so threatening that he´s not willing to disclose it?
I don´t want to say this is likely. I´d just like this whole "threat to bitcoin" discussed. Thoughts?

Block Collider: Fusing existing chains into a Multi-Chain, a dramatic evolution in Blockchain Interoperability

A New Approach to Blockchain Interoperability (True Decentralisation)
Recommended Reading to assist in better informing this post:
A close look at the Blockchain space reveals a series of blockchain projects that operate largely in distinct silos. The reality is that blockchain technology is yet to realise widespread real-world adoption, however as we accelerate towards maturity a key infrastructure level requirement will be the ability for information to be transmitted in real time from blockchain to blockchain and even off-blockchain to old world systems. Anecdotally we need to look only as far as the internet to conceive the value that interconnectivity can generate.
“Bridging chains with a multichain is like building roads between buildings. Hypothetically, one could build a building that has everything, but in practice some buildings are built to work in, some are built to live in — as long as citizens want to be in multiple buildings at different points in time, roads are valuable. The crypto community as it exists demonstrates a wide variety of features across blockchains — some chains have quick block times, some chains have expressive smart contracts, some are purely deflationary and an excellent store of value. As long as users need features from more than one blockchain, bridging those chains with a multichain is needed.” – Block Collider Whitepaper (Source)
There are some well known projects that are trying to tackle interconnectivity between disparate chains. Of those known projects, only a few are focused on Interoperability as their core focus – some examples are Polkadot, Cosmos and Ark. A new project which as yet has remained under the radar (by design) has come out with a radically different solution to the issue of interconnectivity between chains: Block Collider.
“A mineable multi-chain protocol for stable coins, decentralized exchanges, and meta contracts.” – Block Collider
Let’s take a quick look at a few of the key interoperability projects within the space:
Comparison Table
For more detailed Table of comparison click here
The Multi-Chain: The Advent of Multi-chain Distributed Applications and Meta Contracts
Block Collider is the first true “multi-chain”, which at genesis will connect 6 chains – Bitcoin, Ethereum, Neo, Waves, Lisk and another chain that is yet to be named. Block Collider’s core ledger is the aggregate of all blocks on all member chains, giving rise to the term “multi-chain”. Block Collider’s blockchain is built by “weaving” together disparate chains using PoD* (Proof of Distance – a modified version of Nakamoto consensus), consuming blocks from each chain into a Block Collider block, recording in effect the state of each member chain.
The multi-chain not only facilitates value transfer between chains but more importantly allows these previously “siloed” projects to know the “state” of each other’s chains. Why is knowing the state of other chains so important? True interoperability is much more than just value transfer, it is the ability for different blockchains to work in parallel. This innovation opens the gates to something truly remarkable – multi-chain distributed applications and meta contracts (multi-chain smart contracts).
Example Diagram
The above diagram illustrates a simple example of a distributed multi-chain DAPP handling trust funds. This kind of application only scratches the surface of the true potential Block Collider brings to the blockchain ecosystem. The multi-chain functionality is not merely transferring data but proving data relative to another chain.
“…distributed application developers can modularly combine exotic features from blockchains across the ecosystem …. distributed application developers can build in the capability to load-balance work between chains” – Block Collider Whitepaper (Source)
As an aside there is an additional security benefit that results from Block Collider being a multi-chain, an aggregate of member chains. A miner attempting to use bad blocks would not only have to reverse the entire chain on Block Collider but also break the hash power of difficulty of the member chain.
*PoD – Proof Of Distance consensus mechanism is beyond the scope of this article. Please refer to Block Collider Whitepaper – Section 3.2 The Edit Distance Computational Challenge (pp 13) or Building a Blockchain Singularity with Proof of Distance by Patrick McConlogue (Co-founder of Block Collider).
True Decentralisation
“The Block Collider multichain is collaboratively created exclusively by decentralized peer-to-peer miners — with no centralized points of failure, oracles, or validators.” – Block Collider Whitepaper (Source)
One of the core tenets of Block Collider is to provide a platform that is very much in line with Blockchain’s vision of true decentralisation. Block Collider prides itself on the absence of validators in its consensus mechanism and its resistance to centralising elements.
Validators vs no validators
What is a validator? A validator in a blockchain is a “human element” or third party to whom the network cedes some degree of trust. A validator is incentivised by a network to confirm that an event/transaction has occurred on the network. This approach has been/will be adopted by many chains including interoperability chains like Cosmos, Polkadot and Ark who utilise Delegated-Proof-of-Stake (DPoS) or similar consensus models, where there are a set number of validators.
Block Collider does not require validators, it builds it’s blockchain with a mining algorithm (PoD), requiring proof of work to validate events on the blockchain. It in effect removes the requirement to place trust in a fallible party.
Centralisation of Power
A concern in any decentralised network is that power may accrue to a few. We see some commentators point to this occurrence in the Bitcoin network, where there is a centralisation of power around a few mining pools. Power in this context is the governance of the chain and the rewards for block validation. In this situation existing economic power is entrenched and can conceivably lead to the ongoing centralisation of consensus, governance and wealth. However, it is also worth noting one of the advantages that the Bitcoin platform has in comparison to its counterparts who have pursued PoS or DPoS is that it does not require the network to cede any additional trust to validators.
PoS or DPoS and their varying iterations aim to solve for some of the bottlenecks in current blockchain technology, however, these consensus mechanisms still contain elements that can give rise to centralisation. PoS requires that a node stake a sufficiently high bond in order to achieve the status of “validator” and thus PoS is still heavily weighted to those with economic power. DPoS has the added functionality of “democracy” by allowing delegates to vote for a trusted “validator”. Ideally the scenario is one of a democratic approach, however such a system may still lend itself towards centralisation as voting is typically weighted by share of network. Without going into an exhaustive discussion about various consensus methodologies, their strengths and shortcomings, we can nevertheless see that the use of validators presents some departure from trustless consensus without necessarily resolving the centralising effects of economic power.
Block Collider is a mineable chain like bitcoin and faces the same issue of centralisation of power from mining pools but has implemented certain conditions to alleviate the pressure towards centralisation. These include:
1) Splitting the mining of blocks and transactions (Refer Whitepaper Section 3 – Mining on the collider for technical details)
“… by allowing for competition in two spaces, there is reduced risk of centralization, since an actor would have to win the centralization game at both levels.” – Block Collider Whitepaper – Section 3.4
Transaction mining is open to anyone and does not require ASIC hardware to mine. This allows anyone on the network to have an economic incentive to participate in the network whilst achieving greater throughput and greater load distribution, reducing the strain on the network.
2) Emblems – Block Size Bonus (Refer Whitepaper Section 3 – Mining on the collider for technical details)
BC has a unique proposition to implement dynamic block sizes through the use of Emblems. In effect miners can “stake” Emblems which will allow them to expand the size of the block, thereby fitting more transactions into a single block for greater rewards. How does this alleviate pressure towards centralisation? We look to the Co-Founder Patrick McConlogue for answers:
“Block Collider implements game theory to the benefits of mining incentives beyond block/fee rewards. The Emblem bonuses for mining is sublinear (that is, there are diminishing returns for emblem ownership) which balances the economic incentive against centralisation (as the marginal utility of Emblems will be highest for those with fewer emblems).” – Patrick McConlogue
As an example, noting that all metrics are hypothetical, Sue has 10 Emblems and Mike has 100 Emblems. If the optimal number of Emblems required to achieve a desired block size was around 20 Emblems, staking beyond the 20 emblems does not significantly increase the block size. In effect, any additionally staked emblems has a diminishing value in comparison to the optimally staked 20 Emblems. So, in this example Sue’s block size could be “Standard block size + 5” and the optimal block size is “Standard block size + 7”. As staking has a diminishing bonus, Mike staking 100 Emblems would result in “Standard block size + 8”. This is to say those without large economic power can still compete on a near equal footing. In this way Block Collider aims to mitigate the pull of economic power towards centralisation.
What if Mike splits his 100 Emblems to utilise the optimal number of emblems to stake, to run multiple mining rigs concurrently? In this case 20 Emblems to 5 mining operations.
“A miner could absolutely split the Emblem rewards among mining rigs but in order to maximize the rewards from this he/she would have to be connected to the least number of identical peers that the original rig is connected to. In this way they must expand to other regions. This leads to less centralization regionally and increases the overall efficiency + speed of the network.” – Patrick McConlogue
In addition, Mike replicating 4 more instances of the original mining operation would require significant resources.
Interoperability Technology
Member Chain Conditions
One of the greatest breakthroughs that Block Collider has achieved is that it has a very low threshold to incorporate foreign blockchains into its multi-chain. In laymans terms there is no need for modification of member chains to participate in the network.
This is a significant development in the blockchain ecosystem as current and planned future interoperability solutions require some form of compatibility or change to the participating chains. To achieve compatibility Cosmos and Polkadot primarily require chains to be built on top of their infrastructure. Ark on the other hand requires direct changes to existing chains in the form of embedded code.
However, it should be noted though that Cosmos Polkadot, and Ark have alternate solutions to compatibility for existing chains who choose not to be modified. This can be achieved through intermediate zones, peg-zones, bridgechains, smart bridges and encoded listeners. If we are to borrow from the Polkadot whitepaper certain chains (Ethereum) are clearly easier to adapt into intermediate zones but others not so much (Bitcoin):
1) Ethereum – “Due to Ethereum’s Turing completeness, we expect there is ample opportunity for Polkadot and Ethereum to be interoperable with each other, at least within some easily deducible security bounds.” – (Polkadot Whitepaper – Source)
2) Bitcoin –* “…. As such we believe it not unrealistic to place a reasonably secure Bitcoin interoperability “virtual parachain” between the two networks, though nonetheless a substantial effort with an uncertain timeline and quite possibly requiring the cooperation of the stakeholders within that network.”* – (Polkadot Whitepaper – Source)
The breakthrough by Block Collider should not be understated, the multi-chain by providing a low threshold for member chains to interoperate without the need for validators provides crucial infrastructure for a trustless internet of blockchains.
Scalability and Shared Security for Member Chains
Through comparison of Cosmos and Polkadot, the question may arise does Block Collider provide scalability and shared security for member chains? The simple answer is no.
Block Collider does not provide scalability and shared security primarily because of its conditionless participation for member chains. Block Collider follows the philosophy of Doug McIlroy, the inventor of Unix pipes, “Write programs that do one thing and do it well. Write programs to work together.” In this sense scaling solutions are the responsibility of protocol level chains, interoperability is the responsibility of Block Collider.
Cosmos and Polkadot provide these solutions for member chains that “join” their networks and is a unique and commendable value proposition provided by their platforms. Although it should be noted that for existing chains, using the intermediate zones referenced earlier, does not provide the same scalability and shared security benefits as those built natively on the platforms. This is because the existing chain does not function atop the platform, rather they are bridged to the platform with links (bridgechains or pegzones) built by Polkadot or Cosmos.
Scalability – Size and Transaction Speed
Block Collider as a multi-chain is the aggregate of blocks from its member chains. What does this mean for scalability in terms of size & transaction speed?
Size of the Chain
A valid concern would be that Block Collider which is an aggregate of all blocks on all member chains can be quite space consuming. To combat this Block Collider’s PoD consensus mechanism primarily uses header states and Merkle proofs of other chains to store the chain on the Block Collider network. The headers are less than 1% of the size of the original chains’ block. So, one could imagine without any modifications, Block Collider could merge 100 chains and still only be the size of one Ethereum sized chain.
As Block Collider evolves, we can envision a day when 1000 plus chains are interoperable with Block Collider. So, what then? Block Collider is designed to tackle this growth in two ways, compression as far as possible and then through reverse chain pruning.
“To handle the first part [compression], we start with header states. After which we switch to a signature only model like that proposed in Mimblewimble (once the Block Collider hash rate is strong enough). Finally the pruning which will be the process of creating a second blockchain which mines backwards. In the second blockchain, “the work” is transactions that should be trimmed from the block. In this way it works like defragmenting your hard drive.”* – Patrick McConlogue
*Mimblewimble – an experimental blockchain network
Transaction Speed
Block Collider as the aggregate of blocks from member chains will always be slightly faster than the fastest member chain. This is due to Block Collider having a high block issuance rate that is based on blocks issued on member chains.
Image Example of Block Issuance
In the above example from the whitepaper we see that Bitcoin issues 2 blocks in a set time frame “x”, Ethereum issues 6 blocks and Waves issues 3 Blocks. The first Block Collider block is formed when the 3 chains issue their first block. It should be noted that block times vary across chains and as such member chains will issue blocks at different intervals. At each issuance from a member chain Block Collider will issue its own block containing the new set of blocks from the member chains. In this example 9 Block Collider blocks are issued in the time frame “x”. So the block issuance rate (block velocity) will always be higher than the fastest member chain.
Higher block velocity of course brings up the issue of throughput – the number of transactions per second. Mining has been designed with throughput being the primary mandate. The satisfaction of this mandate was one of the primary motivations for Block Collider splitting block mining and transaction mining into separate processes.
“Unlike other cryptocurrencies, the transactions and the blocks of the Collider blockchain can be mined separately. Transactions being pre-mined makes it easier for a miner to add a transaction to a block it has discovered, which balances the power that miners have in current systems.” – Block Collider
TECH COMPARISON // Multi-chain Protocols (The Internet of Blockchains)
Block Collider has come to the space with a radical solution to the “Internet of Blockchains”, connecting disparate chains whilst maintaining blockchain technology’s vision of being truly decentralised. The mainnet launch will include interoperability between 6 chains, BTC, ETH, NEO, Waves, Lisk and a yet to be named chain.

What Fictional Company Synonymous With Incompetence Does Blockstream Most Resemble?

I lost it after Blockstream made the decision to sell crappy 1MB4EVA t-shirts and stickers over the Lightning Network with the disclaimer "Warning You May Lose Money." My mirth built to dangerous levels when the CEO of Lightning Labs called out Blockstream for making a bad move and recklessly endangering customer funds. This is the move of a company run by the Three Stooges. Can anyone think of any goofball company we can use to metonymically refer to Blockstream?

Top 10 Most Infamous Viruses and Malware

This is a list of 10 of the most infamous viruses and malware. Viruses and Malware are often seen as similar things but viruses are actually a type of malware, to learn more about the types of malware see the full article below. This article is not an absolute list and there are many viruses not covered here. If something wasn’t covered feel free to discuss it in the comments below.
  1. Melissa
In 1999 while the internet was beginning to grow the Melissa virus grew to notoriety. The virus spread through email by sending messages from compromised outlook accounts. Melissa would have the subject that this was an urgent message and once opened would read’ “Here is that document you asked for…don’t show anyone else ;-).” The message would then include a file named LIST.doc. Once opened the file would send itself to the 50 first people in your contacts using your name. Melissa contained several pornographic website usernames and passwords. If the date and time lined up properly Melissa would also corrupt word files to read “Twenty-two points, plus triple-word score, plus fifty points for using all my letters. Game’s over. I’m outta here.” A reference to the Simpsons. This spreading overwhelmed various servers and shut down email systems. The creator of the virus was eventually found out to be David Smith who named the virus after a stripper. Ultimately Melissa would go on to cause around 1.1 billion dollars in damage worldwide and Smith went on to work with the FBI to fight viruses.
  1. I Love You
    The ILOVEYOU or love bug virus started in May of 2000 and, just like Melissa, was spread using email and curiosity. The virus would work by sending an email with the subject “ILOVEYOU” and an attachment that said “LOVE-LETTER-FOR-YOU.txt.vbs” Though in most cases the .vbs was hidden making the file appear to be a simple .txt file. Once clicked on the virus would overwrite various files with itself, taking over everything from office documents to mp3s. The virus would then send itself to everyone in your windows address book. This would cause losses of data and the shutdown of various email services causing around $7 billion in damage and $15 billion to remove. The virus was ultimately traced back to the Philippines and the men responsible never severed time as local law did not have provisions for this sort of crime.
  2. Storm Worm
In late 2006 Storm Worm arose using click bate style emails. The most common email claimed to link to an article about how a storm in Europe killed 230 people, this is how Storm Worm got its name. Though, unlike the previous entries, Storm Worm used this access into computers to build a bot net or a network of computers working to collect information and further spread Storm Worm. The Storm Worm bot net differs from other bot nets as it does not use a central server but rather uses some of the computers it infects to operate. Storm Worm does not directly harm machines but rather is available for malicious people to hire. Once commissioned the bot net then spams networks to overwhelm them and cause failures. Though Storm Worm itself was shut down in 2008 various forms of Storm Worm still function to this day.
  1. SQL Slammer
Next on this list is the 2003 worm SQL Slammer. This worm worked by exploiting Microsoft SQL Server, once a server was infected it would spread the worm to other servers. The infected servers would send so much data it slowed down entire networks and shut down the internet in some areas. This caused flights to be canceled, companies to switch to pencil and paper and completely shut down the internet in South Korea. SQL Slammer lead to massive costs that could have been avoided as it exploited an old vulnerability that had been previously patched. What truly made this virus effective was its small size and its prey. Slammer was small enough to be undetected by most antivirus programs. Slammer focuses on servers not home computers, this meant it could cause massive damage with a smaller number of hosts. Though the creator was never caught SQL Slammer has been patched out.
  1. Flashback
The majority of viruses on this list effect Microsoft machines as they are the majority of machines used. Flashback is different from there other viruses as it effects Mac devices. Flashback targets a vulnerability in Java in order to create a bot net. Flashback is a Trojan that used infected websites to spread itself so a user would have to visit a specific website to become infected. It is estimated that Flashback was able to infect around 600,000 apple devices in mid-2012 before Oracle fixed the Java vulnerability. This attack caused apple to take viruses and security more seriously leading to changes in their advertisements wording to new security features.
  1. Cryptolocker
Cryptolocker was a ransomware type of malware that would encrypt important files and ask for a fee to have them returned if you didn’t pay the fee in 72 hours your files would be lost forever. Starting in September of 2013 Cryptolocker spread through email. These emails would be generated through a botnet. Cryptolocker would pose as a message from a bank or other official service stating that they had a document for you to read. The file would appear as a PDF but once opened would actually launch Cryptolocker and begin to lock down your files. Once inside a machine Cryptolocker would infect everything the computer had access to, from hard drives, to flash drives to machines on a shared network. Because of this ability to spread Cryptolocker would compromise RAID arrays as well as continuous backups. This meant that even if you were actively backing up your data Cryptolocker could infect your backups as well, only separated backups were safe. Cryptolocker was a very advanced type of ransomware that experts struggled to crack and for a long period of time is was agreed the best way to get data back was to pay the ransom. Cryptolocker asked for around $300 in some form of untraceable currency such as bitcoin. It is not certain how much money this generated but it is estimated the creators made at least $3 million. Though as the attacks went on, in an attempt to slow or stop Cryptolocker, the servers hosting parts of it were shut down though this only served to make unpredictable if one would actually get their files back. As time went on antiviruses developed ways to protect from Cryptolocker.
  1. Code Red
Code Red was a unique worm found in July of 2001 that could infiltrate a computer just by being connected to the internet. Code Red would gain access by exploiting a vulnerability in Microsoft’s internet information services. Once the worm had access it would spam the letter “N” until it overwhelmed the computer enough to gain access. The worm spread rapidly infecting computers and defacing websites to make them display “HELLO! Welcome to! Hacked By Chinese” Once Code Red infected a sufficient number of machines it would launch spam attacks to try and overwhelm preset IP addresses such as that of the Whitehouse. The attack on the Whitehouse was mitigated by changing its IP address once the plan was discovered. Though the creator was never caught a patch eliminated the worms effectiveness. This was another attack that could have been avoided by sufficient updates and backups as the vulnerability was patched a month prior to the attack.
This virus was the most expensive ever causing around $38 billion in damage. In 2004 the MYDOOM virus became the fastest spreading virus spreading through email and infecting 1 in 12 email accounts. The emails sent containing MYDOOM had a wide variety of names and content meant to trick users into opening the attachment. Once infected with MYDOOM the virus uses the devices to spam attack a specific target to overwhelm the system. The primary target was believed to be the SCO group as they were attacked by 25% of MYDOOM infected devices. The creator has never been found.
  1. Stuxnet
Stuxnet was one of the first cyber weapons ever created. Stuxnet was designed to target Iranian nuclear enrichment labs and cause the centrifuges used to destroy themselves while also preventing warning systems from going off. Stuxnet is such a complex cyber weapon entire articles and documentaries have been created about it. There are also countless theories about Stuxnet. It is believed Stuxnet was created by the United States and Israel and snuck into the Iranian nuclear facility on a flash drive but how this was done is unknown. Due to an Iranian Engineer connecting to the internet Stuxnet was free to infect all the computer systems linked to the internet. This means Stuxnet could attack any power system in the world. But Stuxnet has only one target it will attack and that is the Iranian nuclear system. The fear is that someone could alter the Stuxnet code in order to launch a mass attack, though this is all theory and speculation as there is so much mystery around Stuxnet. Stuxnet is one of if not the most complex viruses ever created believed to be around 20 times more complex than any other virus. Stuxnet is able to enter these security systems using stolen credentials from actual cyber security systems. Ultimately, everything above is just speculation and theory as this is such a complicated virus it is impossible be sure of the details. Though there is an existing tool that can stop and remove a Stuxnet infection.
  1. WannaCry
    Similar to Cryptolocker WannaCry was a ransomware that went out in 2017 attacking windows XP computers. This included the UKs national health service, shutting down the hospital system for one day. WannaCry would charge between $300-$600 to get files returned though reports are unclear if anyone who paid the ransom got their files returned. Thankful the healthcare service had backed up their files and was able to quickly recover. WannaCry was built based off of a leaked NSA cyber weapon known as Eternal Blue. This weapon exploited an old vulnerability and a special patch was issued by Microsoft as the software impacted was so old it was no longer supported. This age to the software limited WannaCry’s ability to infect typical computer users. The attack was stopped in a unique way in that the virus actually had a kill switch built into it so when a specific domain name was registered the attacks stopped.
The Take Away
The most important thing to remember about these viruses and malwares is to backup your data. By backing up your data even if a virus infects your computer you can get all your information back. You should also avoid clicking on strange email attachments. Keeping a good antivirus software on your computer is all key. Lastly, keep your computer up to date, a lot of the viruses exploited older and devices that had yet to be updated. For more information on how to keep yourself safe from viruses see the full article below.

10 Most Dangerous Viruses in Internet History.

Getting a computer virus has happened to many users in some fashion or another. To most, it is simply a mild inconvenience, requiring a cleanup and then installing that antivirus program that you’ve been meaning to install but never got around to. But in other cases, it can be a complete disaster, with your computer turning into a very expensive brick which which no amount of antivirus can protect.
In this list, we will highlight some of the worst and notorious computer viruses that have caused a lot of damage in real life. And since people usually equate general malware like worms and trojan horses as viruses, we’re including them as well. These malware have caused tremendous harm, amounting to billions of dollars and disrupting critical real life infrastructure. Here are the 10 most famous and malicious computer viruses.
Recommended Reading: 10 Signs Your PC Has Been Compromised


The ILOVEYOU virus is considered one of the most virulent computer virus ever created and it’s not hard to see why. The virus managed to wreck havoc on computer systems all over the world, causing damages totaling in at an estimateof $10 billion. 10% of the world’s Internet-connected computers were believed to have been infected. It was so bad that governments and large corporations took their mailing system offline to prevent infection.
📷via BBC
The virus was created by two Filipino programers, Reonel Ramones and Onel de Guzman. What it did was use social engineering to get people to click on the attachment; in this case, a love confession. The attachment was actually a script that poses as a TXT file, due to Windows at the time hiding the actual extension of the file. Once clicked, it will send itself to everyone in the user’s mailing list and proceed to overwrite files with itself, making the computer unbootable. The two were never charged, as there were no laws about malware. This led to the enactment of the E-Commerce Law to address the problem.

2. Code Red

Code Red first surfaced on 2001 and was discovered by two eEye Digital Security employees. It was named Code Red because the the pair were drinking Code Red Mountain Dew at the time of discovery. The worm targeted computers with Microsoft IIS web server installed, exploiting a buffer overflow problem in the system. It leaves very little trace on the hard disk as it is able to run entirely on memory, with a size of 3,569 bytes. Once infected, it will proceed to make a hundred copies of itself but due to a bug in the programming, it will duplicate even more and ends up eating a lot of the systems resources.
📷via F-Secure
It will then launch a denial of service attack on several IP address, famous among them the website of the White House. It also allows backdoor access to the server, allowing for remote access to the machine. The most memorable symptom is the message it leaves behind on affected web pages, "Hacked By Chinese!", which has become a meme itself. A patch was later released and it was estimate that it caused $2 billion in lost productivity. A total of 1-2 million servers were affected, which is amazing when you consider there were 6 million IIS servers at the time.

3. Melissa

Named after an exotic dancer from Florida, it was created by David L. Smith in 1999. It started as an infected Word document that was posted up on the usenet group, claiming to be a list of passwords for pornographic sites. This got people curious and when it was downloaded and opened, it would trigger the macro inside and unleash its payload. The virus will mail itself to the top 50 people in the user’s email address book and this caused an increase of email traffic, disrupting the email services of governments and corporations. It also sometimes corrupted documents by inserting a Simpsons reference into them.
📷via MSN Canada
Smith was eventually caught when they traced the Word document to him. The file was uploaded using a stolen AOL account and with their help, law enforcement was able to arrest him less than a week since the outbreak began.He cooperated with the FBI in capturing other virus creators, famous among them the creator of the Anna Kournikova virus. For his cooperation, he served only 20 months and paid a fine of $5000 of his 10 year sentence. The virus reportedly caused $80 million in damages.

4. Sasser

A Windows worm first discovered in 2004, it was created by computer science student Sven Jaschan, who also created the Netsky worm. While the payload itself may be seen as simply annoying (it slows down and crashes the computer, while making it hard to reset without cutting the power), the effects were incredibly disruptive, with millions of computers being infected, and important, critical infrastructure affected. The worm took advantage of a buffer overflow vulnerability in Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS), which controls the security policy of local accounts causing crashes to the computer. It will also use the system resources to propagate itself to other machines through the Internet and infect others automatically.
📷via HP
The effects of the virus were widespread as while the exploit was already patched, many computers haven’t updated. This led to more than a million infections, taking out critical infrastructures, such as airlines, news agencies, public transportation, hospitals, public transport, etc. Overall, the damage was estimated to have cost $18 billion. Jaschen was tried as a minor and received a 21 month suspended sentence.

5. Zeus

Zeus is a Trojan horse made to infect Windows computers so that it will perform various criminal tasks. The most common of these tasks are usually man-in-the-browser keylogging and form grabbing. The majority of computers were infected either through drive-by downloads or phishing scams. First identified in 2009, it managed to compromise thousands of FTP accounts and computers from large multinational corporations and banks such as Amazon, Oracle, Bank of America, Cisco, etc. Controllers of the Zeus botnet used it to steal the login credentials of social network, email and banking accounts.
In the US alone, it was estimated that more than 1 million computers were infected, with 25% in the US. The entire operation was sophisticated, involving people from around the world to act as money mules to smuggle and transfer cash to the ringleaders in Eastern Europe. About $70 million were stolen and in possession of the ring. 100 people were arrested in connection of the operation. In late 2010, the creator of Zeus announced his retirement but many experts believe this to be false.

6. Conficker

Also known as Downup or Downadup, Conficker is a worm of unknown authorship for Windows that made its first appearance in 2008. The name comes form the English word, configure and a German pejorative.It infects computers using flaws in the OS to create a botnet. The malware was able to infect more than 9 millions computers all around the world, affecting governments, businesses and individuals. It was one of the largest known worm infections to ever surface causing an estimate damage of $9 billion.

The worm works by exploiting a network service vulnerability that was present and unpatched in Windows. Once infected, the worm will then reset account lockout policies, block access to Windows update and antivirus sites, turn off certain services and lock out user accounts among many. Then, it proceeds to install software that will turn the computer into a botnet slaveand scareware to scam money off the user. Microsoft later provided a fix and patch with many antivirus vendors providing updates to their definitions.

7. Stuxnet

Believed to have been created by the Israeli Defence Force together with the American Government, Stuxnet is an example of a virus created for the purpose of cyberwarfare, as it was intended to disrupt the nuclear efforts of the Iranians. It was estimated that Stuxnet has managed to ruin one fifth of Iran’s nuclear centrifuges and that nearly 60% of infections were concentrated in Iran.

The computer worm was designed to attack industrial Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), which allows for automation of processes in machinery. It specifically aimed at those created by Siemens and was spread through infected USB drives. If the infected computer didn’t contain Siemens software, it would lay dormant and infect others in a limited fashion as to not give itself away. If the software is there, it will then proceed to alter the speed of the machinery, causing it to tear apart. Siemens eventually found a way to remove the malware from their software.

8. Mydoom

Surfacing in 2004, Mydoom was a worm for Windows that became one of the fastest spreading email worm since ILOVEYOU. The author is unknown and it is believed that the creator was paid to create it since it contains the text message, “andy; I’m just doing my job, nothing personal, sorry,”. It was named by McAfee employee Craig Schmugar, one of the people who had originally discovered it. ‘mydom’ was a line of text in the program’s code (my domain) and sensing this was going to be big, added ‘doom’ into it.
The worm spreads itself by appearing as an email transmission error and contains an attachment of itself. Once executed, it will send itself to email addresses that are in a user’s address book and copies itself to any P2P program’s folder to propagate itself through that network. The payload itself is twofold: first it opens up a backdoor to allow remote access and second it launches a denial of service attack on the controversial SCO Group. It was believed that the worm was created to disrupt SCO due to conflict over ownership of some Linux code. It caused an estimate of $38.5 billion in damages and the worm is still active in some form today.

9. CryptoLocker

CryptoLocker is a form of Trojan horse ransomware targeted at computers running Windows. It uses several methods to spread itself, such as email, and once a computer is infected, it will proceed to encrypt certain files on the hard drive and any mounted storage connected to it with RSA public key cryptography. While it is easy enough to remove the malware from the computer, the files will still remain encrypted. The only way to unlock the files is to pay a ransom by a deadline. If the deadline is not met, the ransom will increase significantly or the decryption keys deleted. The ransom usually amount to $400 in prepaid cash or bitcoin.
The ransom operation was eventually stopped when law enforcement agencies and security companies managed to take control part of the botnet operating CryptoLocker and Zeus. Evgeniy Bogachev, the ring leader, was charged and the encryption keys were released to the affected computers. From data collected from the raid, the number of infections is estimated to be 500,000, with the number of those who paid the ransom to be at 1.3%, amounting to $3 million.

10. Flashback

Though not as damaging as the rest of the malware on this list, this is one of the few Mac malware to have gain notoriety as it showed that Macs are not immune. The Trojan was first discovered in 2011 by antivirus company Intego as a fake Flash install. In its newer incarnation, a user simply needs to have Java enabled (which is likely the majority of us). It propagates itself by using compromised websites containing JavaScript code that will download the payload. Once installed, the Mac becomes part of a botnet of other infected Macs.

The good news is that if it is infected, it is simply localized to that specific user’s account. The bad news is that more than 600,000 Macs were infected, including 274 Macs in the Cupertino area, the headquarters of Apple. Oracle published a fix for the exploit with Apple releasing an update to remove Flashback from people’s Mac. It is still out in the wild, with an estimate of 22,000 Macs still infected as of 2014.

Wheel of Fortune References in The Simpsons - YouTube Bitcoin and Beyond with Brock Pierce 10 Times The Simpsons Predicted The Future - YouTube XRP SIMPSONS PREDICTION EXPLAINED!!! 😲 - YouTube Bitcoin and Crypto Explained By The Simpsons  Drug Dealer LOSES 6000 BTC  EOS in Coinbase Trouble

Enthusiasts are hip to the fact this isn’t the first cartoon-oriented theme to reference crypto. Bitcoin has seen light on shows like Supernatural, Family Guy, among others. The Good Wife, Almost Human, Person of Interest, and House of Cards have also kissed the phenomenon’s metaphorical ring, as it were. For The Simpsons, of course, this isn’t a first either. About five years ago ... That’s far from the most impressive mention of Bitcoin on television. In February, The Simpsons dedicated the 13th episode of the 31st season, titled “Frinkcoin,” to cryptocurrency and blockchain. That episode featured Jim Parsons, the actor behind Sheldon Cooper in “The Big Bang Theory,” who explained how blockchain underpins cryptocurrency and how digital assets are decentralized. Bitcoin appears in multiple Simpsons ... Other shows that reference bitcoin’s more illicit uses include “4C” of Person of Interest (January 2014), and “ Chapter 15 ” of House of Cards (February 2014), where bitcoin laundering is mentioned to explain the deep web. “Ode to Satoshi” – Bitcoins & Gravy (February 2014) With the price of bitcoin above $500 in early 2014, more songs ... Popular American TV cartoon 'The Simpsons' recently aired an episode that gives a small nod (kick in the groin) to bitcoin. In the scene, the But that might be expected: it’s rare that The Simpsons goes deep on a topic, and this was seemingly more to laugh at Mr. Parsons than to learn anything in depth about Bitcoin. All the same, for the millions of viewers the Simpsons gets on a weekly basis, this could be a great first introduction to the crypto space, and a fair one, considering no single digital asset was referenced by name.
