Apparently Poland's right wing government has no idea what censorship is, and hates businesses that refuse service to customers. Their proposed law sounds laughable, but hey, it's Poland, so who knows what will happen. Their freedom of speech council had better have about 100,000 members, they are going to be busy.

It's an aspect of Scarlet Witch's incredible power, which they barely even acknowledge in the MCU... She's been known to fabricate her own realities from time to time, and AFAIK doesn't need an infinity stone to do it.
It definitely seems like she must be one of the most powerful beings in the MCU.

Comics Wanda yes, MCU Wanda... her powers are vague enough to be as strong or as weak as the plot demands. I'm guessing with the show they are going to make her powers much stronger and define the reality of the show itself, ie. all the black and white 50's nostalgia looking trailers. That said, I'm looking forward to the show, it should be interesting at least.

I hate to be that nerd, but just read the novels. They are better than the show, and although there is some of the human drama, overall it's an amazing series. Light sci-fi of course, not Vernor Vinge or something, but still very enjoyable. Plus they have already said they are going to cram 9 novels into 6 seasons or something, some stuff is going to get lost.

Also, that Alaskan pilot broke like... all the laws.

Yeah. I almost did some mining in the early days, I liked the "crypto" aspect of the idea. These days when I think about it, I wonder if I had mined up a few thousand bitcoin would I have done something retrospective silly like this? Or simply "lost" them like so many seem to have? Kind of makes me glad I got distracted by something else -- looking back and having spent millions on pizza would be awfully damn painful.

Speaking for myself, I most definitely would have spent some coins on frivolous bullshit early on, if I had mined any. I surely wouldn't keep them for 10+ years hoping they would be worth $40,000 a piece, rofl! When they were first being bandied about, I was way too suspicious of the mining programs, and thrashing my video card to death for 'imaginary coins' so I avoided them. Now... pretty much the same opinion, but it would have been nice to have 20-30 thousand bitcoins lying around on a thumb drive or something.

Don't dwell on it. Think of all those guys bragging about buying pizzas and other takeout with Bitcoins back when they were new. Man, I hope those restaurants hung onto those coins!
The $350m pizza order.

LOL, wow. 10,000 bitcoins for two pizzas... ugh... I am literally laughing to myself out loud reading that article. Now that's got to be some regret. Especially since mining bitcoins back then was so computationally cheap.. haha!

Somewhat interesting it wasn't directly to the pizza place though, I had misremembered that detail. Hopefully the intermediary kept those coins longer.

Toxoplasmosis Gondii, lead asborption, general low levels of intelligence, we may never fully know what drives people to risk their careers for petty theft or other nonsense. Similar to people stealing office supplies at work and getting fired... mathematically it makes no sense!

Long ago I bought $100 in bitcoin. Forgot about it. Got a new PC. Threw the old one away. It would be worth $74,000 now. Sigh.

Welp, guess I should finish up Cyberpunk 2077 now then. I'm on the last mission, just doing side mission shit, then I can uninstall, and reinstall in a year or so and replay. It'll be like a new game.

Wonder Woman 1984 was an atrocity. It was mind boggingly bad. I can't even fathom the decision making that must have gone into writing the plot. They could have just taken a classic Max Lord storyline and had a badass movie, but no, they had to countermand the first movie, and make terrible decision after terrible decision. Also, mindrape.

Of course it's just a DC movie, so what was I expecting?

Completely off topic for anything.. but I was wondering if anybody knows what happened to Creston? He commented pretty much daily until December 2019 and not a word after that!

Statistically, at least a few Bluesnewsers have gotten seriously ill or died from Covid19 by now. Or just other aspects of life intruding into video game website posting time, maybe nothing dramatic.

Haha! I was too late to make this exact comment.

That said, I've gotten a lot of hours out of the Ubisoft formula games, so I'm cautiously interested.

Massive Games didn't have towers....

No towers in Division 1 and 2, yes, but plenty of busy work. Enjoyable busy work, I loved Division 2 especially to log about 800 hours, of very repetitive but enjoyable grind.

70k, good start, now just suspend every other Twitter account there is, and call it a day. Then Facebook, Imgur, Gab, you name it.

Social media being shutdown entirely would be enormously beneficial for the human race. The past 10 years or so have shown that most people cannot filter out propaganda and lies at all, we're at the brink of death for the USA as a functional democracy as it is.

Then humanity can start working on cleaning up the televised propaganda. That'll probably take the rest of our natural lives.

Two guesses for locked bitcoins? Kiss that $240m goodbye. There have probably been billions of dollars worth of bitcoins lost at this point. Satoshi Nakamoto (whoever that may be, person or persons) probably already lost most of his/their bitcoins. Just, evaporated, passwords forgotten, or lost due to degradation of harddrives.
