Glad he’s no anti vaxxer

Everyone hates big pharma until they get a headache or cancer.

What have headaches, cancer and pain killers got to do with vaccinations? Have you guys actually seen the crap that goes in to some vaccinations?

There is no such thing as free money

Try telling that to the Government as it cranks up the printing presses. One thing for sure is that if we continue to print and type currency into existence at the current rate, hyper inflation is just around the corner.
That doesn’t leave too many asset classes as safe havens - precious metals obviously, and probably some of the cryptos.
Anyway - each to their own.

Bitcoin isn’t the one to gamble your savings on. They’ll only produce a finite number and then that’s it. You needed to get onto it 5 years ago.

Just another form of control…?

Who controls it?

Three people actually.

No one controls it. That’s the whole point of a true crypto. It is a decentralised system. That’s not to say price can’t be manipulated to a point by ‘whales’ buying/selling large numbers of Bitcoin. That can happen in any market. So I am interested in your comment, Willow, that 3 people ‘control’ it. Can you elaborate?

Not in this case no.

Can you PM me with this information, or is there some other way I can access it?
Genuinely interested.
Cheers

No can do sorry.

That’s a shame. Thanks, anyway.

I have a little. I wish I had more. Not sure what will happen with the halving. Heard conflicting opinions. I hope some of the better cryptos will become more widely accepted and used as they are potentially a secure store of value.
I have grave fears about any digital currency coming from the Government or central banks.

I know what you mean about Digital currencies created by banks but I think people are starting to understand the flaws in the fiat system and would be crazy to just step into another centralised system with the same inherent flaws.

It’s really just up to us, the way to take control back is simply not use their currency, that’s the beauty of Crypto it gives us ownership and puts us in control.

If anyone understands the way fiat currency works and the federal reserve banking cartel and how they’ve been stealing our wealth since the day it was created, nobody would use their filthy money again, sadly most people are too lazy or just blissfully ignorant to find out.

The criminals (bankers) also use language to baffle the general public such as “quantitive easing” once average Joe hears a banker or finance guy use language like that they just switch off and don’t even bother finding out what it means.

Ask the average person this question.
Where does money come from?

And I bet you 95% of people don’t know, (I’ve been doing this for a few years now)

It blows my mind that people use this currency every day, they work their asses off for it, they’ll make themselves sick for it and because of it yet they don’t know where it comes from,
and what’s worse is, they don’t realise how their wealth is being separated from them systematically.

If you’re interested there now a Crypto Visa debit card available that can be used just like your current bank card, it also allows you to “stake” coins and receive 2% or 3% (or more) cashback immediately paid in MCO (Monaco) and depending on how much you stake you can also get free Spotify and Netflix subscriptions, also zero fees.

Check it out at crypto.com

I would be very interested to know more about this. Once crypto becomes easier to use, the take up will sky rocket.
Who issues this visa card?
Have you looked at Monero? A truly private coin that I think will also do very well.

Winger
Len Killeen 69 grand final
balmain club record
South African RU winger and goal-kicker extraordinaire shifted from Rugby’s amateur ranks to play for St Helens in 1965. Killeen got a first-hand view of the 1967-68 Kangaroos in England and decided that Australia was the place to play rugby league. Signing with Balmain he established a club record 207 points (9t, 84g, 6fg) during the club’s premiership winning season in 1969 - surpassing the great Keith Barnes. Killeen’s kicking style - placing the ball upright with an ultra-quick walk-up - was seen to good effect in the Tigers’ shock, 11-2 win over Souths in the infamous 1969 grand final. He saw out his career at Penrith in 1972 before returning to South Africa.

LOL. I had Len’s #5 on my supporters jersey way back as a kid. I have to say, though, that although he was a class goal kicker, as a player, he had one enormous deficiency. If jerseys back in the day didn’t have collars, he never would have made a tackle. The guy was dead set, a joke in defence. Loved him though!

There was a joke about Killeen which said he only had 2 running speeds slow and slower.He could certainly kick goals and every team used to “carry” a goal kicker no matter how useless thry were in general play

He only needed to have his kit laundered once or twice a season too. He was as clean at the end of 80 as when he ran on to the field.
I miss those days!

No love for Sirro?

Oops! My bad. Actually, there are a couple of changes I would make to my team.
Jack
Corowa
Brasher
Hanley
Tiquiri (as a right side winger. Both Lawrence and Corowa played L.H.S)
Marshall
Prince
Roach
Farah
Donnelly (Although Beetson was the best prop I have seen play, he didn’t get anywhere near his best until he was at the Rorters)
Sirro
Ellis
Pearce

Boyd
McGuire (as the second bench prop)
Lindner
Knight (Dual international, an enormous body who could play wing, centre and second row). Ideal bench player
