Mars in 8K

As much as I appreciate the technical achievement of how we are able to create these images and this footage I have to say:

I love our planet brimming with life everywhere. And I just cannot understand why we destroy it the way we do. We only have this one. There is no other feasible alternative planet for the foreseeable future. Probably even further than that.


The Case Against Crypto

So if you sell your crypto and make a profit in dollars, it’s exactly because a greater fool bought it at a higher price than you did. So every dollar that comes out of a cryptocurrency is because a later investor put a dollar in. They are inherently zero-sum by design, and when you take into account the casino (i.e. exchanges and miners) taking a rake on the game then the entire structure becomes strictly negative-sum. For every winner there are guaranteed to be multiple losers. It’s a game rigged by insiders by hacking human psychology.
