English historical notes / Unusual English words.
« Last post by Jet Cash on Today at 07:33:45 AM »
English is a particularly rich language, and most people only use a subset of the full vocabulary. I thought it would be fun to list a few of the more unusual words that I know. The first one is veridical.

veridical is derived from the Latin word "veridicus" which is a blendword of "verus" and "dicere", and that translated into "true to say". The more common alternatives are "truthful" and "veracious".

I will create a login there to check it out, but is it something that you are trying to engage discussion to come out with potential coins list? Or it is related to your own private token?

If the governments had our interests at heart, this could be a good law. However, we know that the powers that control our governments don't have our interests at heart, quite the reverse in fact. So what do you think about this law - is it the thin end of the wedge?

Bitcoin tunes / I've added some Bitcoin advertising songs
« Last post by Jet Cash on January 13, 2019, 01:25:22 PM »
I created a new gallery of Bitcoin advertising songs. There are only a couple on there at the moment, but I'll add to those as I find new videos.

The portfolio gallery is growing slowly, and entries are arriving spasmodically.

I replaced the flowers with a couple of cartoons. Let me know if you like this idea,

Bitcoin tunes / I've redesigned the site using a responsive template
« Last post by Jet Cash on January 12, 2019, 09:41:08 AM »
Check out the new site here - The new Bitcoin Tunes site
It includes some of the great Bitcoin tunes such as "Blame it on Mt. Gox", and there is even a jpop video.

I'll add a section for the Bitcoin Ralk drama video contest as soon as I get a few more entries.

Computer and the Internet / Some web designers are stupid.

I use free WiFi a lot, and when you login to McDonalds free WiFi, then once you connect, you get a splash page. That tells you the offers of the day, and it tries to get you to buy one of the latest offerings. Now that is what I would expect to happen, and it is good marketing.  At the moment I'm in a retail park known as "Ocean Village", and the major feature on their splash page is a map with directions to get to the shopping centre. You would think that they would realise that if I'm in a cafe in the middle of the park, I would have worked out how to get here.

Country specific news and discussion / Re: Let me create a topic for India.
« Last post by Jet Cash on January 11, 2019, 10:06:21 PM »
There are lots of interesting topics that one could start about India. One is the impact on health as a result of the ivory poachers killing all the vultures. I understand that this has led to an increase in disease in some areas.

Though I am not a ideal candidate to start this thread but I feel I should start it.
I am not much interested in politics but I like to brainstorm/debate things.
Politics offers the perfect platform for debating and if any one of you have any question then I will like to answer you friends.

Videos about crypto and the world economy / Will Russia buy all the Bitcoin?
« Last post by Jet Cash on January 09, 2019, 07:21:08 PM »
There are some interesting comments in this video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2bFeGzLvZk

The guy suggests that Russia will need to buy massive amounts of Bitcoin as they divest themselves of US dollars, I suspect it a bit of wishful thinking,but he doesmake some interesting points.
