Two days ago, a new meme coin was launched with Tolkien initials, publicly invoking the Lord of the Rings. Which is fitting, since there’s a lot in common between Crypto-World and Middle-Earth.
Today’s financial system is this centralized draconian power no one can challenge, much like Sauron was in Middle-Earth, yet suddenly there’s a glimpse of hope in decentralized Crypto, which seems immune to its power.
Everything good in Middle-Earth was decentralized, much like cryptocurrencies are today, and everything evil was centralized, much like the fiat currencies.
And there are some who argue Aragorn united Middle Earth making it sound…
Few years back, Jackson Palmer sold all his Dogecoin at the bottom, while it was bellow 0.01$, to buy a second hand car.
To say he’s far from being a financial genius is an understatement.
He helped create a joke cryptocurrency, but sold his crypto prematurely. If he held his Dogecoins for a bit longer, he’d be a billionaire today, and could help the poor, assuming he actually cares about them as much as he keeps invoking them.
And that’s a wild assumption to say the least. …
Elon Musk is known for his active, and often hilarious twitter feed with half of the comments being poor attempts to smear the man, which I’m sure he enjoys on a daily basis. Most of them are generic and repetitive, which should tell you they’re coming from the same group think.
Now, every sane person would avoid their support. In fact, the more they disagree with you, the better you should feel about yourself, which is why Elon can’t help but poke their nest every now and then. But instead of arguing with them on twitter, where no one will…
The absence of any rationale in this movie is quite comical. On Earth the humanity is so advanced it constructed a space elevator, but for some reason it’s still stuck with chemical rockets. I guess the screenwriters never heard of concepts like ram accelerators or external energy vehicles, both of which were proposed by NASA, and some of the aspects even tested. A space elevator is far, far more advanced in both scale and complexity, so it’s absurd to imagine that we’ll go from chemical rockets straight onto space elevators.
On the Moon, humanity has artificial gravity tech, but their…
I was listening to one of those new age spiritual leaders talking about her memories from past lives, from ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. Yeah, I know… She described them as flashbacks from her past lives.
And I asked her, did it ever cross your mind that those flashbacks could just be a product of your subconsciousness? Our brains have strong propensity for imagination. Even though imagination is not memory, people often do confuse them, for one reason or the other. Perhaps they wish their imagination to be real. I mean who wouldn’t? We call that wishful thinking, but there’s more…
The writer of a small article on L.A. Times website is “disheartened” about Sarah Stewart Johnson laying down the benefits of the recent Mars mission.
She writes that NASA should instead focus on our current major crisis. You know, the pandemic, and probably hundreds of other issues on her priority list. And make no mistake, Mars will always be at the end of that list.
Meet our real life Ms. Hanley.
So what do we say to people like these?
In my opinion, the best thing to do is to send an obvious question their way.
Space engineers, astronomers and…

Before I start, I’m going to state the concrete fact in large bold letters, so no one can squirm around it.
The whole TLOU2 cycle of revenge started with Abby’s father attempting to kill a child.
Yes, you heard it right. That doctor was about to kill a child. He deserved every bullet. In fact, Abby should have been the first to stop him. And this game utterly fails to recognize that.
Ask yourself, would you kill someone like Ellie to save yourself?
I’m sure there are some who would, but they’re not the type worth saving…

This is a rebuttal of “The Last Of Us Part 2’ Review (PS4): Dig Two Graves” article from Forbes. To say that I find it completely wrong in every way is an understatement.
The author begins his moral philosophy by saying:
I also remember that Joel did something that could easily be considered monstrous, murdered an entire hospital of people looking for a cure for the virus so he could save Ellie.
How is saving your adopted daughter by killing those who want to take her life a monstrous murder? It’s the clearest example of justifiable…

Seems like everyone is aware of pretty large disconnect between the user reviews and the professional critic reviews. More and more games fall into this category, and it usually ends up with one side dismissing the other.
In the case of The Last of Us 2, the professional critics were calling out the user reviews fake, arguing that the low user scores are due to homophobia and bigotry. But if the negative user reviews are due to homophobia, then why did The Last of Us: Left Behind score 8.1 among users…
The short answer, it depends.
Many in the bodybuilding business are quoting a study from 2011 which examined how sleep deprivation affects muscle growth. The study followed individuals for 72 hours. One group slept 5.5 hours and another group slept 8.5 hours per day.
But what most in the fitness industry fail to recognize is the largest study on bodybuilding ever done, the U.S. armed forces. For decades the recruits were allowed to sleep less than 6 hours every day, and this is maintained in many branches to this day. …
