  • That’s weird, I was reading expecting to see some kind of simpson’s quote or reference like they predicted 9/11. Instead, he mentions how “dozens of the writers of The Simpsons went to Harvard.”

    I think Simpsons is very interesting because so many people get the wrong things from it. A lot of people don’t view Simpsons as satire (which it is); they view it as an excuse for their behavior. It’s ok to be a lazy, ignorant, alcoholic because that’s what Homer is. He still loves his family, right? And that makes it okay. (not)

    I typed this out before reading further, and I’m glad he mentioned the Monorail episode because it’s exactly what came to mind. However, that episode was clear satire. It doesn’t make sense for the audience to think giving in to a conman is the correct thing to do, but that is what has happened to a lot of cities across the US.

    It’s weird because I think Simpsons has had the effect that he’s talking about, it’s just I’m torn on whether or not it was the real intention of the artists.

    If it was, that’s absolutely mind-boggling illuminati shit. I don’t think it goes that deep, though.

  • Cryptocurrency is our first planetary multi-trillion-dollar Ponzi scheme.

    This actually makes a lot of sense if you’ve followed crypto for over a decade and look at the markets.

    Ycombinator is where a lot of the technology that takes advantage of us begins. I think it’s a stretch to say Bitcoin started as a conspiracy, but I would definitely believe that everything that followed could be the result of bad actors pulling the strings.

    The strangest thing in crypto is how uniform the value of currencies are over time. They all go up at the same time. They all go down at the same time. And they do this with near-identical amounts.

    This can only mean that it’s the same people who are invested in multiple currencies.

    Seeing how massive companies like “Red Bull” got popular paying influential people to shill their products, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least that some investors are paying people to make and shill cryptocurrencies.
