The expensive part is a deli-quality slicer, but failing that a decent(ly sharp) cleaver or butcher’s knife and reasonable slicing skill can accomplish something passibly similar

So much this. I feel like the unchallenged lies of people like James Clapper set the stage for even more unhinged and more powerful liars like William Barr...

Much harder to go the other way. That's the "Tether Trap":

Reminds me of this Pink Floyd album cover. Not really a fan of them anymore, but I always thought this album cover was cool.

Gotta love the "we need to keep the scam up just a bit longer until the bottom drops out" spike

Totally agree with you (and ). The world has been running on debt since e.g. the Dutch East India Company, circa the 17th century. Economies prosper when credit is available, and collapse when credit dries up.

A white man with a ak-47 shot at cops because he refused to wear a mask. This man is still alive. That should tell you everything you need to know about the system of policing. Lol

Gonna go out on a limb and suggest one of the properties of cash that makes it useful is people trusting it has value

The USD volumes they require for doing anything with cash are too onerous for anyone but exchanges. And like said, it's anyone's guess as to what the exchanges are actually doing. It'd be nice if they provided some auditable transparency around this sort of thing, but...

As in a bank holding their reserves, or banking services? I have no idea how they accomplish the former these days. They keep rotating banks at a pace indistinguishable from a money launderer 🤔 /cc

I’ve seen charts that use colored vertical lines that show issuances/burns... can tey to dig one up

Pretty strong correlation between the recent “bull run” and Tether issuances. The “This is Fine” crowd will tell you that’s Tether acting as a fiat on-ramp, while Tether skeptics would suggest it’s fake liquidity
