    If we want $BTC to go up all we need to do is grab our phones for one hour a day and have Google and Apple listen to us pretending having talks about BitcoinI’m sure we are degenerate enough to do so

  • From arobertwebb:

    I’ve come to accept that as a Radiohead fan, I was always going to be a disappointment. Everything from Kid A onwards makes me feel gauche and stupid. Like seeing an ex-boyfriend who has stopped washing his hair and now talks only about bitcoin in Spanish.

  • From AwakeningWarri3:

    @jack I understand many of you will say “it’s bitcoin pizza day dude”, which it absolutely is. But that doesn’t negate my point. Nor does it negate the truth that we need to put humanity’s awareness of true evil on steroids right now. That should be clear, to all of us.
