Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Wait, so is Bitcoins essentially MMORPG gold?

    No. It's a new alternative currency that can't be traced and cannot be broken down into smaller increments. There is no equivalent to the cent in Bitcoins.

    And I think one Bitcoin is like 30 bucks right now.

    Also Bitcoins are made by crunching some algorithm or something. It just sounds idiotic.

    lol no

    The thing that strikes me right now, after getting past the part of my brain that likes any stupid thing that looks like the FUTURE, is how stupid making a currency that will lose half its value every two years is.

    They aren't impossible to replicate, it just takes a lot of processor cycles. Which gets easier and easier every few months.

    Not thinking ahead there, champ.

    it actually gets harder as time goes on, which is why people keep making successively larger amounts of computer farms to try and get them

    but the fact that there is a limited amount makes it by nature deflationary and because of the mining thing early adopters are naturally rich

    it's literally the worst system for a stable currency and it's being held up by libertarians and nerds

    We all do, Squirrel.

    But now we need to know if we can use nerf darts as a form of currency.

    And what the exchange rate is for bottlecaps. Mark my words. Bottlecaps are the future.

    Are you seriously that dumb? We just had a recession that owned rich investments (which have nothing to do with race). Last time I checked, poor people didn't do too much heavy investing. Also there are some poor people who are white. I don't know if you realized this.

    did you forget the foreclosure crisis and the millions of families that lost their homes??

    answer: probably

    also the fact that in the last 2 years the top 1%'s wealth has increased 10%??

    Yeah fandeath the upper class has pretty much solely profited from all the shittiness of the past couple years. Corporate profits are up because they can cut pay and benefits + increase hours without people leaving for other jobs because there are no other jobs. The banks got bailouts and went on to have record profits with no problem. Rich dudes are doing a-okay and everyone else got screwed.

    I think my point got a little lost. Yes, everyone suffered from the recession. The rich did suffer the least. But in terms of "rich white people" getting owned, nothing owned them harder than this recession did (bar the great depression). There is no way bitcoins lost rich people more money than the recession, as was Koshian's original argument.

    Same reason I always replied to teefs. Call people out on being a troll enough times, other people start to see the pattern, and they eventually get banned for being awful. Not that I would claim any responsibility in the banning of teefs. I just like to point out when someone is clearly trying to make SE++ a worse place for everyone.

    How about them indeed!

    All of the talking up the Longshot gets makes me really want one, but I can't remember seeing any in stores at least as far back as when I worked at Toys R Us over the holidays. And they are a hundred bucks on Amazon. :(

    This despite the official Nerf website still happily acting as if all iterations of it are still in production and should be available anywhere...

    But just putting longshot parts on a Maverick? That's a goddamn travesty.
