  1. NYC man sells fart for $85, cashing in on NFT craze https://nypost.com/2021/03/18/nyc-man-sells-fart-for-85-cashing-in-on-nft-craze/ Sad that you can’t smell them, that’s half the fun
  2. You are creating your own definition of what an ad hominem is lol, man you’re just trolling me at this point. Have at it.
  3. Ad hominem is attacking the person not the issue. When you said I’d look at a dog take a shit and I’d say “Now let’s wait for evidence” you are attacking me. That is an ad hominem. You saying “that dog took a shit” when a dog took a shit is a fact. I would not argue with a fact like that. Your opinion on the shooter’s motive is just an opinion.
  4. I’m not trying to insult you or even debate you. We have a difference of opinion and you seem to have a really hard time accepting that.
  5. I’ll let you have the last ad hominem dig, seems like that is what you enjoy.
  6. I think we’re just talking past each other at this point. Police response is terrible, I don’t see how you comeback from saying a mass murderer “had a bad day” then express zero empathy for the victims. As for shooter my opinion is I don’t know enough yet to jump to the conclusion that he is an evil racist who had premeditated a hate crime. The case is brand new and we will learn more. That’s about all I got, sorry I don’t see it exactly like you do bro.
  7. It only matters what the jury thinks. If a racially motivated mass murder carries a stiffer penalty than one that is not racially motivated that will be for the courts to decide which punishment he gets. That will depend on evidence.
  8. Your bias is that the murder’s actions don’t match his words. It’s fine to have that bias but don’t go putting words in my mouth that I can’t believe he’s a liar. If there is evidence that he is a white supremacist, like he’s a member of a bunch of WP FB groups or wrote screeds about the stuff I’ll believe it. Until then the only fact I’ve seen is his statement. Still not sure why you had to take it to an ad hominem attack but whatever makes you happy.
  9. Why are you so bent out of shape over this? All I said is the guy said that wasn’t his motive.
  10. Kinda seems like the tail is wagging the dog here with all the media and SJWs latching onto this being about anti Asian sentiment. The suspect was asked if his killings were racially motivated and he said no. He said he did it because he has a sex addiction and he wanted to eliminate places that tempted him. I’m not saying he is justified at all for anything he did, regardless of motive. But in this specific instance he said that wasn’t his motive so that’s all we really have to go on. Never let a good crisis go to waste though. Andrew Yang already said: “Make no mistake, these women were targeted on the basis of their race.” I guess Andrew got to interview the suspect and personally made him change his motive and confess eh? Fucked up situation all around. This country is sick.
  11. Yeah to me it has parallels to fiat money in the sense that we all believe money has value so it does.
  12. That article got most of it right except for the part about an NFT being a way to purchase digital art. It’s not the art you pay for. It’s the actual transaction that people are placing value on. It’s set up in a way that the right to conduct a specific transaction is sold and the act of being able to make the transaction is immutable. The analog world equivalent would be a room of people bidding for the right to place their name in a book with a record of the date, time, amount, and the counter party they paid for the right to sign the book. They hand over the money, sign it, write the time, amount, and the counter party signs that they agree to forfeit their claim to the transaction. The record of the transaction is now owned by that bidder. Anyone in the world can now look at the permanent ledger and see that specific transaction actually took place and the record will never change. The person who owns the record of that contract may wish to sell it in the future. The record of that contract can be constructed in a way that each resale pays the originator of the record a royalty. There are other spins on it but that’s the gist. It is being pitched as a way for an artist to show the provenance of their work. They create the opportunity to conduct a scare number of specific transactions and say that those transactions represent some notion of originality. It’s all about perception. If everyone agrees that the trade of opportunities to conduct transactions in an immutable ledger is valuable and represents the things they are supposed to symbolize, then it does.

    And it’s not even selling the gif that’s the funniest part to me. It’s selling a fact.
  14. You are buying the fact that you sent someone money. That’s it. You can add a bunch of cryptobro jargon like “non fungible” and “smart contract” etc but those are just implementation details. The value is transferred to buy a fact that you transferred value.

    $136k for proof of an ETH transaction seems crazy to me but the market has spoken.

    If you’re referring to Google Facebook Amazon etc and all their surveillance capitalism that ship has sailed. The market spoke. People are happy to trade their data for making global communication frictionless. It’s not like those companies created those services without demand.
  18. You are buying the fact that you made a specific transaction, that’s pretty much it. “Look! See in that public ledger where 0xDEADBEEF sent 0xABCD1234 50 units? That’s me!” Some people are finding value in that. It’s the ultimate wealth flex.
  19. Kinda funny as earth centric hippie focused he seems to be that he’s gonna cash in on NFT.
