Howdy there, partner! Welcome on into the Stacker Saloon.
Saddle on up to a stool and spill the beans about your day, fire away with them questions, or let loose and give us the lowdown on your wild and woolly life. We're all ears, so don't hold back!
We're open round the clock, so mosey on in whenever you please!
Realizing that I might learn to fly next year or the year after.

Oh, I see, didn't know. But I would think they just did fly a lot around the world.
Talking about taking your chances over and over and so on.
So I think it's not about being a musician. It's about flying a lot :)
If you fly a lot, you might almost die a lot, lol
Until it's no longer almost

I think I was only a few times in a glider plane
But seeing the curvature of the earth ever so slightly
It's crazy and instantly addicting.
Hopefully I won't crash because I can't stop looking outside the plane and not at the instruments, lol

I haven't watched TV in a long while. But I'm on the road with time to kill, so I switched on the BBC news channel to see what's happening in normieland.
So far they've had: Immigration, why golf courses should be shrunk for environmental reasons, immigration, a rapid increase in shoplifting over the past year, immigration, the benefits of moving to a cashless society, immigration, an inquiry into the government's covid-19 response and how it can be even more draconian next time, and immigration.
Shit's depressing. I'm glad I found Bitcoin and SN. We may be wrong and some of you are complete schizos, but at least I have fun here. Appreciate you all (even the schizos).

also will likely be getting a sponsor in the next month or so, where should we place the sponsor ad genuinely interested in wondering what the stackers think?
if we do sponsor SNL it will be a company that I think is making cool stuff on bitcoin or we won’t take them on

What do you mean with "where"? Are you talking about placing it on SN? Or are you talking about a sponsor banner behind you somewhere in the stream?
sorry if I didn't give you time to update your reply, lol
reply
basically where in the podcast should we place it after boring segment in bitcoin or at the beginning or at the end
reply
Right before the cowboy streak segment, that's what everyone tunes in for so that's advertising gold right there.
reply
527 sats \ 1 reply \ @ek 7 Dec 2023
aahh, i see
i like when people mention the name of the company at the beginning in a very quick sentence, similar to what @kr does in his podcasts (even though I can't find a good example right now):
"This episode is sponsored by X. We're going to tell you more about them later."
And then you just do your normal stuff and then when it's usually a good time for a break, you can mention them more.
mentioning them at the end may be weird since i think less people are going to listen to it then.
maybe you can just pretend like it's another story of the week / one of your personal top stories you want to bring up but it's actually the sponsor ad? so something very "immersive"
the best ad is the one which doesn't sound or look like an ad. without not clarifying that it's actually an ad, lol
reply
cool so the beginning makes sense 🤙

hello, for some sat whales
start a territory for whistleblowing or whistleblowers and make it a safe and reliable place for whistleblowing, i know there is no such place in the first layer of Internet, but can make a place where small whistleblowing happening that wont create or invoke some demons over stacker news's back.
whistleblowing territory will be fun as Stacker supports anonymous posts.
spamming will be an issue while stackers can moderate always.
@k00b your input or opinion is much appreciated.
reply
Whistleblowers are welcome at ~oracle, since PMs pay you for whistleblowing :)
Just create a prediction market about something veeery specific and then bet on the outcome with your insider information :)
Jk of course... Or am I?
reply
The Pandora's box is already opened. Nobody will know what is going on on the other "territories". I like chaos/anarchy, don't get me wrong. Having more wild "territories" is just wild and @k00b already lost the "control".

Morning stackers. This is an exciting time to be part of this nutty adventure.
I'd be curious about early thoughts about territories -- my mind is kind of spinning by the implication of it all.
reply
I respect people and the choices they make but I think this will be a great way to onboard potential maxis. I started my journey with Bitcoin and the transitioned into alts but eventually found my way back to Bitcoin. This was mainly due to educating myself which is why territories can be helpful to engage a larger audience and educating them on why Bitcoin and not shitcoins.
reply
Morning Elvis. Said it elsewhere but think we’re going to see many many more nocoiners on SN.
People need to be aware and mindful of this. That we are to help them along in their journey. That their interests alone in some of these territories will see to it that they stick around. It’ll be rewarding to see their journeys and contributions. And for the penny to drop.
Oh and there’ll probably be more value to come from curation too. Exciting times.
reply
I think you're right.
I'm very excited for territories to get more moderating features. I know some people hate the idea (@Onions has made his thoughts on the matter clear; I think @DarthCoin, too), but I have the opposite take: I think the best possible implementation is one where territories can be as sovereign as possible, and a thousand experiments can bloom.
If I create one where I am a heavy-handed dictator with a particular vision, and I will smite posts that violate my vision, then people can select into or out of that vision -- you don't have to love Singapore, but you can't argue that it's not a well-ordered society. If you don't like it and want to live in Caracas, or Somalia, those options are mostly available to you.
I'm rarely sure of anything in life, but I'm sure that if the goal is to use btc to allow online community-building to flourish to maximal degree, one size will not fit all. If you believe in the marketplace for ideas, this is that.
reply
I'm beginning to wonder if this whole territories concept was a good move after all.
History doesn't repeat it self, but it often rhymes.
reply
hahaha That's why I do not create one "darth-territory" yet. I will be such a dictator as you said. And I love freedom much more than that. A "darth" territory , as I said, will be just a "red-only" territory. Why? Because I came to the conclusion that most of the people are really dumb. I don't fucking care if somebody get triggered or insulted, but this is the truth.
My opinion, visions, advice are TOOO STRONG and WILD FOR MAJORITY OF THIS CLUELESS PLANET. And I don't fucking care. Why? Because I came from the future and I have only one thing to say:
Hate me as much as you want, but in the end you will came back to my harsh words... I am always right. I hate to say that.

I'm excited to see how the Darth Territory turns out.

reply
A “signature” is a “sign” that merely suggests the existence of something else not actually there – it is not evidence of substance and living capacity. Someone who makes a “signature” is an “accommodation party" in “joinder” to an artificial legal “person” NAME, with Dead Status, serving as surety for the corporate national debt in the Admiralty Maritime Jurisdiction – the International Law of the Sea.
Whereas an “autograph” is a graphic from your living hand as a sentient, flesh and blood man or woman – it provides evidence of substance and living capacity, which is why a thumbprint is the ultimate “autograph” for a living man or woman. Someone who makes an “autograph” declares that they are a sovereign man or woman, with Living Standing, in the Common Law Jurisdiction – the National Law of the Land.

Autograph ink is red (life), blue (sea), or purple (royal). Black ink indicates debt and death. For handwritten autographs, the declaration of Living Standing is more important than the colour of the ink, however a thumbprint autograph is always in red ink denoting your lifeblood.

fun fact
@saloon is showing up in earth 👀 cc @birdeye21
reply
It must be a bug. It also appears in bitcoin territory but only with the hot filter.
reply
hot = front page
and saloon always only on the front page because saloon pinned as 8th item on front page
so this confirms this theory of me, I guess
so yes, you're right, it's a bug since I am pretty sure that @k00b did not intend to do this, lol :)
edit: or wait ... not sure. it always showed up on the front page in any territory so that it shows in the bitcoin territory isn't actually new.
maybe that's a feature, not a bug? since that's how subs/territories did work all this time so far? lol
we'll have to wait for @k00b. i think he'll be here any minute now :)

maybe a feature not a bug? so everyone won't miss it 😂

reply
Ohhh, intentional?
reply
not sure, maybe every post would eventually find a home / territory?
reply
It's (probably) a bug. I think any sub would show the saloon if it reaches more than 7 posts on the front page since the saloon is pinned to be the 8th post. So this means that ~earth is the only territory so far which has more than 7 posts, lol
reply
you are right.

all I can think about is shitcoinery, not "cryptography". Most people feel the same way, it's really sad.
maybe the difference is just that i liked cryptography before i got into bitcoin. and we were using crypto all the time to mean cryptography.
my interest in cryptography probably lead me to bitcoin in the first place.
no they didn't. they hijacked your brain
i can literally use "crypto" in a sentence and the context makes it clear that i am talking about cryptography:
"let's do some basic crypto. we're going to use AES256 in CBC mode and then show you how you can attack this using a padding oracle attack."
see?
and if it's not clear, the other person is at fault for not realizing that even the word "crypto" in "cryptocurrencies" stands for "cryptography"

And I'm still in the process of pilling one Airbnb host, which is a bit tricky since it's a family. I've known them for a while and often come and stay at their house and pay in cash; I attempted to pay in BTC before, but the parents prefer cash ( quite old ) - any stacker have tips on how I should try harder? 👀

tell them about https://airbtc.online/ and many other places where they can list the apartment for BTC (see btcmap.org)

can try, and it would be nice if I can show the parent how Bitcoin works but I don't get to meet them in person, tricky.

Why not? I can't even pretend to know lots about bitcoin but I'm learning, but you don't have to understand to begin stacking and if his music brings engagement and he gets rewarded in sats he'll have an incentive to learn slowly.
