[Crypto] I got involved in this pie-in-the-sky investment 2 years ago. I had some cash laying around and said, what the hell! It went down about 60% and I was going to cash it in, claim a loss, etc. Well, the last few months this investment has exceeded my initial investment and made some money. For all CT readers with a few bucks, $50 or $50,000, look for a pretty, unique crypto name, throw some money in and watch its crazy rise and fall.
The problem is there is no one to call for guidance or help. Best bet is get a few kids in their 20’s that can guide you how it works. Link
[Immigrants] Are the immigrants who are beating up cops and robbing liquor stores the same gangs the asylum seekers are running from?
[What To Do With Dead EV Batteries] I wonder where all the dead (several thousand pound toxic waste) batteries in electric cars after the batteries die will be stored? I wonder where people like me, who live in apartment buildings and have to park our cars and trucks on streets, will charge our new electric cars after our old gasoline-powered cars die and go to the junkyard with their tiny toxic waste batteries?
My friend said there are several patents in the US Patent Office for automotive engines built to use electrolysis to separate hydrogen from water and the hydrogen powers cars and trucks. He said the technology was road tested in existing cars by car makers, and it worked great. On a quart of water, a sedan traveled several hundred miles. He said the technology can be installed in all but the most recent cars and trucks, and the auto industry can design it into their new cars and trucks.
He said The Atomic Energy Commission, egged on by the oil industry, declared the patented technology could be used to make nuclear weapons, so it cannot be used by auto and truck makers. He said it would take a very long time using the technology to make enough radioactive material to make even one nuclear weapon, and anyone working on the project would die of radiation poisoning long before the weapon was made.
I’m a tech idiot, but he convinced me that something is rotten in the Atomic Energy Commission. I already knew something was rotten in the oil industry.
Imagine hydrogen-powered cars and trucks putting Tesla and the Chinese Tesla knockoff out of business.
Imagine hydrogen-powered cars putting Saudi Arabia, the Middle East and Russia out of business.
Imagine America having no reason at all to be involved in the Middle East.
[Sideline People] I firmly believe that football should order people who aren’t playing in the game (including coaches, back-up players, media, etc) should be at least 15 feet back from the playing sidelines.

We hear about the brutality of the British in Colonial India but before the British there were the Kings. The Kings were a group of regional kings who subjugated the people and brutalized them for centuries. So when the English came, Indians were pre-disposed to mistreatment. The kings were useful to the British for controlling the populous as they had already softened the people to subservience for hundreds of years. Eventually Indians woke up and overthrew the English in the 1920 mutiny, preceded by years of guerrilla attacks.
What used to be called crime rings and gangs are now renamed cartels.
