NFTs are garbage, absolute trash.  The very concept of NFTs is incoherent.  Remember, the novel thing about cryptocurrency is that it eliminates the need for trust in counterparties (in regards to the transfer of cryptocurrency [1]) and central authorities.   But with NFTs, the cryptosystem/blockchain gives you no idea who IRL created the NFT or the relation (if any) between the NFT and the thing it is alleged to represent.  I have a significant investment in cryptocurrency, but I will never invest in NFTs.  Don't be surprised if the entire NFT ecosystem collapses due to rampant fraud.

[1] E.g., unlike gold, you don't need to worry that what you received is debased, and unlike banknotes, you don't need to worry about they might be counterfeit.

>Under that logic, since there are valuable copies of items and art irl and that avaiable for the people to see, I could counterfeit one, even though the already units sold out

I think any reasonable person would agree that this is correct.  You do see this with any number of previous things, though.  Trading cards are a big example.

>People are not paying for the art itself, pay for speculation and collectionism.

It's true, but I think that is the part people find stupid.

>Remember, the novel thing about cryptocurrency is that it eliminates the need for trust in counterparties
Cryptocurrency is novel in that it uses a decentralized consensus mechanism to process payments; to say that "it eliminates the need for trust in counterparties" is an interpretation of the application of such an apparatus. Actually, when one invests in crypto one is putting "trust" in the network, or rules (protocol) which govern the exchange of "assets". In this way, an economy is created around a legal system, rather than the other way around, as is thought to be the case in the development of "geo" industries. The "value" of crypto is the "value" of the network behind it.

An "NFT" is an asset with an "obscure" valuation. In the development of a monetary network, it is variegating, rather than sequencing; it does not have the same role as an effectual mechanism, but diversifies the system, and allows it to thrive rather than run down as it receives "shocks" from the outside.

I'm not that surprised. Okay yes the results of what that produces are delicious (I have one, so I know), but people like to pretend to themselves they'll eat healthy (or at least not aggressively unhealthy) and a deep fryer? It's literally impossible to make things that aren't drenched in fat, by design. An air fryer could be a solution to that problem, but my personal experience with those so far left me rather unimpressed. Might as well just use a regular oven.

I realize that the idea of a "classical liberal" and "democratic socialist" Empire is a clear-cut contradiction in terms, but the idea of having absolute authority and using that power to spread human kindness through brute force: treat other people with decency 'or else' and reform your entire socio-economic systems to give everybody essential human rights 'or else'... I can't deny that it's appealing.

Mister Rogers couldn't be much more than good ol' Mister Rogers because he obviously never had the interest in making everybody else be like him whether they wanted to or not.

But I can do that.

[Although, I guess 'Demolition Man' already showed that an 'evil Mister Rogers' wouldn't be that great of a ruler, but... maybe...]

Do you get intrigued when you see creative content which a woman plays something originally done by a man, such as an actress doing an actor's traditional role in a stage production?

What about this more generally... like seeing a man doing something heavily coded as only feminine in terms of either media or real-life? Maybe you come across a piece of music sung from an interesting perspective unlike the regular tune's gender roles? Maybe you're given the chance to play a video game in which a heroine rescues a distressed male damsel? Things like that?

If so, please recommend it here!

For those of you who have medical conditions that involve a great deal of pain, aching that hits you over and over again for whatever issue, what do you tend to do to deal with that?

Over the counter medications such as standard aspirin? High dose versions of over-the-counter material that you get prescribed? Something like gabapentin? Do you drink a lot of alcohol? Use cannabis? I'm wondering.

Funny story, when my wisdom teeth got pulled they gave me Vicodin for the pain, that heavy duty stuff Dr. House is addicted to. But opioids make me vomit, so I just stuck with my go-to Excedrin brand aspirin. A week later it turned out I'd developed a complication called dry socket, and the dentist was astounded I didn't notice because the pain is supposed to be unbearable. That off the shelf stuff did its job a bit too well!

Haven't posted a thread in a while. I don't really have any specific topics but here's some starter ideas. Pick 0 or more, or roll if you wanna. However you'd best enjoy engaging with the thread!

1. Tell a story about something that happened or something you did recently that you are proud of. Don't be afraid to brag!

2. Describe one way you'd like to improve yourself and what you're doing to make it happen

3. What's a lesson you learned the hard way that you like to promote to others?

4. Tell a story of a time you were just flat out stubbornly wrong and how you ended up handling it (doesn't have to be big or dramatic!)

5. What's a silly or naive thing you believed as a child and never thought to challenge until you had an "ohhhh!" moment later in life

6. Tell a lie but sell it with all your might as a truth!

7. How are you? For real, and not superficially. What's been on your mind?
