The Badger And The Reaper

March 26, 2021 Leave a comment

As Elton John and Bernie Taupin bring beauty and grace to music, the Bitcoin badger and reaper bring beauty and grace to hard money. The fiat-based, QE-crazed, financial systems of the world don’t stand a chance against the Bitcoin badger and reaper. The badger relentlessly rips ’em up, and the reaper slowly drags ’em away.

Zapped By Xapo

March 24, 2021 Leave a comment

The very first Bitcoin book I read in 2015 when I discovered and started grokking Bitcoin was Nathaniel Popper’s prophetic “Digital Gold. One of the heroes in the riveting read is wealthy Argentinian entrepreneur Wences Casares. Wences is the CEO of Xapo Inc, a Bitcoin wallet startup. Xapo is believed to hold as much as $10 billion of Bitcoin in underground vaults on five continents, including a former Swiss military bunker.

Since Argentina’s government was/is quite corrupt and poorly managed, Wences’ family lost all their savings not once, not twice, but three freakin’ times due to the hyperinflation-driven collapse of Argentina’s fiat currency, the shitzo, uh, I mean the peso.

While reading the book, I went to Xapo’s web site and created an account to further develop my understanding of the emerging “Bitcoin ponzi scheme“. During account signup, I was awarded 100 microbits (aka 1000 sats) as a signing bonus. After I learned that the only way to buy Bitcoin via Xapo at the time was by international wire transfer, I said fuck it, no way I’m gonna jump through hoops to get some bitcoin.

So here we are 5 years later and I get the following letter from Xapo…

LOL! Big brother is always quietly surveilling its citizenry in the background searching for new ways to confiscate its wealth in the name of “we’re only here to help you“. With my deteriorating mental and physical health, I am now in fear of being transformed into a paranoid, batshit crazy, dumbass, conspiracy-believing, Qwacko. If I rebrand myself as BDQQ, then you’ll know the rebirth is complete. If so, please help!!!!

Bitcoin Karen Dole Pants

Before reading further, please consider that a dastardly potion of klonopin, opdivo, gabapentin, and cannabis chemicals are partially responsible for the inane content of the following post. Add in a dash of Hunter S. Thompson, Howard Stern, and Charles Bukowski, and you may get a glimpse into the awful nature of the force that poked at the keyboard during the construction of this post. The rest of the writing (dis)credit goes to BD00’s formally documented propensity for behaving like a total asshole and to his tightly-coupled co-author, the ever present Emperor Of All Maladies. The ever omniscient and omnipresent EOAM has been a constant co-author to BD00’s verbal spewings for what seems like forever now. Come to think of it, it feels like the EOAM has been dwelling in his head waaaay before the big C diagnosis.

While listening to another wise but whacky Herbert and Keiser Orange Pill Podcast, bitcoiner Mad Max brought up the name of one of the most annoying Bitcoin Karens on record, economist Nouriel Roubini. When Max launched into his Roubini rant, an image of Roubini in Bob Dole pants immediately came to mind, followed by a few other Bitcoin Karens outfitted in Dole pants. It was an uncontrollable, free association event that led to the creation of this NFT worthy graphic.

So that’s it. That’s the post. Pretty immature and cray cray, no? Why would anyone expect anything different from an insane Bitcoin Q. Maximalist like BD00?

The Bitcoin Cancel Culture

March 15, 2021 Leave a comment

BD00 thinks all this fussin’ ’bout “cancel culture” is much ado ’bout nuthin’. But wait! There’s one humongous, earth-shattering, cancellation looming on the horizon. It’s the impending global cancellation of untrustworthy, government-controlled, fiat by the sovereign-individual controlled Bitcoin.

But alas my friends and enemas, the odds are bigly strong that BD00 will not experience one of the greatest resets in human history before the Emperor Of All Maladies cancels him. 😦

Put another way….

Yellin’ At Yellen!!!

In order to get his fine art creations onto the blockchain before the NFT crypto fad is over, mentally disturbed Jackson “BD00” Pollack is frantically throwing shite on a visio canvas again. lol

After yellin’ at Yellen, BDOO then tried to haplessly troll the Emperor.

The Cryptosphere

There are thousands of shitcoins polluting the cryptosphere. I chose a few of the most well known stinkers along with the immortal king of crypto to produce the following work of art…

How the hell do I get an NFT (Non-Fungible Token) for this brilliant work of divine art and who the hell wants to bid on it? lol

How about this piece of work? lol

The Bitcoin Smiley Model

February 18, 2021 2 comments

Before writing about the intended content of this post, I felt compelled to whine and complain about my physical status in the moment. So, here goes.

My feet are vibrating and numb from the ankles down, my toes are involuntarily curled up, my ears are ringing, my right leg feels like it’s loosely coupled to my hip with badly frayed strings, my right leg muscles are fatigued and crampy from an unrelenting tightness, the arthritis in my right shoulder is inflamed to the point where it painfully limits my arm motion, my sense of balance is quite wobbly due to a low level of continuous dizziness, and my mind is in a Schoedinger’s cat superposition of both a dunkin’ “explorer batch” coffee high and a cannabis brownie high.

Since I think my Opdivo-juiced immune system T-cells are on another impromptu, instantaneous rampage searching for more poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma cancer cells to annihilate, I think the swarm is once again responsible for the above-mentioned collateral damage. The tradeoff is surely worth it, but the next time I see my oncologist after my upcoming CT scan I’m going to discuss the possibility of taking what we in the community call a “chemo holiday“.

Now that I got the poor-me cancer complaint off my chest, it’s time to talk about Bitcoin yet again. At some unknown point in time, the Bitcoin Smiley Model (BSM) crossed the chasm in my mind from formless energy to a formed thought. The BSM is a simplified abstraction of the following bitcoin price chart from Bitcoin advocate Dan “HODL” Held. And yes, his real last name is “Held”. Thus, he was destined to be a Bitcoiner at birth.

As I studied the chart of successive parabolas, it looked as though it was smiling at me. Hence, after an uncontrollable but innate urge to create consumed me and directed my attention away from my physical distress, I iteratively doodled in visio in a high speed mode where thoughts for improvements raced through my mind faster than I could capture and draw them. When I felt satisfied with the look and feel of the “done done” product, I stopped and reveled in the sacred moment of communication between the creator and the created. With that said, I share with you my masterpiece, the BSM…

The model suggests that the price of Bitcoin may bump up against a ceiling sometime in the future. The value of the ceiling is a newly discovered universal constant, kBDOO , named after its discoverer, me, BD00. Since our lord Satoshi, the god of money, is the only other person on earth to know what the value of kBDOO is, BD00 has made a pact with Satoshi to keep it secret for the good of all mankind. But once again, don’t forget…

But wait! I don’t make any of the cancer shit up. It’s the real deal. It’s the non-cancer stuff that I make up.

A Two Month Journey

February 3, 2021 2 comments

I started to worry that I might die at the hand of the emperor before I received it, but I didn’t. My precious has finally arrived from a distant land! The ring is a lovely piece of work. It looks and feels like it is an artifact from the classic “Game Of Thrones” HBO series.

Bitcoin Clarity

January 20, 2021 2 comments

I feel really bad for not posting what I’m about to write much earlier, but I’m grateful that I AM finally posting it. It’s about a heartwarming experience that I was gifted and I want to share it with you.

Kiara Bickers is a splendid young lady who works at one of the premier companies in cryptospace: Blockstream Inc. I used to hate the company when I first became enamored with Bitcoin because I thought they were on the wrong side of the vicious scaling war back when it started in 2015. I was a hard core Ver/Andresen/Garza/Hearn fan back then and I erroneously thought Blockstream management was trying to steer the Bitcoin core software development team in a direction that would unfairly give their evil, venture-capital-backed company an advantage over their ecosystem layer 2 competitors.

As my Bitcoin knowledge evolved and I watched the brutal scaling war unfold, I came to the realization that Blockstream (except for the (still) vile Samson Mow) was one of the good guys. The CEO, Adam Back, is the inventor of HashCash. Lord Satoshi rightfully mentions Mr. Back’s HashCash work in the references section of his world-changing white paper. Because of this fact, many latecomers to Bitcoin think Adam is Satoshi.

Ahh, but I digress from the main storyline yet again, as is common with schizophrenic writers like me whose thoughts frantically ricochet back and forth against the internal boundaries of my skull and are sullied by the three dormant tumors asleep in that dungeon.

So, back to the real subject of this post. About a year ago, Ms. Bickers contacted me on LinkedIn. When she was writing an intro book to Bitcoin titled “Bitcoin Clarity” Kiara said she stumbled upon my blasphemous blog while researching the topic of “systems thinking“.  

As you might guess, I was thrilled to hear from Kiara. She graciously offered up a hardcopy of her book for me to read and she pinned a really nice note on the inside cover.

Since its been a year since I read Bitcoin Clarity, I’m not going to try to do an in depth review of its content here. I do remember though when I started reading Kiara’s delightful book I quickly understood her affinity for systems thinking. She used her systems thinking skills to artfully sketch, structure, and weave the book’s content together into a uniquely crafted combo of art and science.

Please dwell for a moment on a sampling of Kiara’s sketching skills below. Note how she artfully leaves out the Bitcoin miners in between the peers so as not to unnecessarily complicate the picture for her targeted beginner audience. Please note that the nasty saying in red is not in the book. It’s BD00’s dastardly graffiti pointing out one of the main reasons Bitcoin exists.

Thank you dear Kiara for providing me with some sunshine from across the internet. I wish you lots of future success and I wish I had the opportunity to meet you in real life. Keep writing and keep Bitcoining your way to a life of fun, happiness, and most importantly, good health. Lots of kisses to you dear young lady!
