You guys ever think it's possible that Sesame Street is actually propaganda organized by Vladimir Putin? I don't know if he has the motive to control Sesame Street, but given how wealthy he is, he probably has the means.

But oh no, everyone love Sesame Street and no one would ever suspect them of anything so we should keep subjecting our children to their ideas. They couldn't possibly be up to no good, right?

Verizon: We're In Talks With Netflix.

So, so, so wrong.

While I agree that it is wrong in that it goes against the way the internet is supposed to work I don't see a solid out for Netflix against bigger ISPs. Their customers can't go somewhere else because there isn't any real competition in the market in 99% of the US so their only options are pay the extortion so the ISPs in question will stop clogging their ports or sit on their thumbs and whine about how they're being mistreated. They've obviously chosen the former.

So all these "robbers" are stealing Bitcoins, which leads to all the bitcoin exchanges being shut down, which will inevitably cause bitcoins to simply become utterly useless and worthless. So then they've stolen shit that isn't worth anything. Yay?

Other theory: The NSA is doing all the 'stealing', because the government is worried about bitcoins.

You know Creston, I was thinking pretty much the same thing about "the government" or some other state sponsored entity stealing the bitcoins in order to protect their own currencies, interests or wealth, but not necessarily American entities. The NSA certainly has the capability to pull it off, but do they have the motive? Perhaps the global banks would have a greater interest in such things.

Hey, but we don't have anything to hide from the NSA so who cares if they spy on everyone, right? They couldn't possibly use that data for nefarious purposes.

I like that you make conjecture with no proof, then make a comment that makes sense only if there's proof.

the NSA has the resources to have done this, true. But code from mtgox was released and a five year old could have done this. They published right to the live site, and there was no version control so devs were publishing over each other.

but sure, it was the NSA. The NSA also hacked half life 2.

If the NSA hacks bitcoins and drops all the money against our debt.....I am all for it....
