Have you heard about http://www.paybox.me/ ? These people scare me a little. The "dollars" aren't actual US dollars but their own invention, recognized by nobody as far as I know.

But non-state currency is an interesting idea.

I don't know whether to wish them luck or just stay away.

fuck cake, cake is god damn terrible, cake has been taking all the glory from pie, which isn't fair, because pie is delicious.

also, cream pies aren't pie, true pies are fruit pies.

Can we just take a second to appreciate the fact that the internet has reduced "too soon?" time to an infinitesimal? Collectively, we have precisely derived Bad Taste. That's something.

Let it not be said our generation failed to contribute.

would that simply count as an actual contribution? what if, in another 80 internet, the opposite of "too soon" happens and everyone suddenly start purposefully not talk about recent events and speak as though we are all born in the 20's.

the 1720's.

I enjoy the idea of internet units.

Please define it and state any relevant conversion factors.

I'll be lucky to get a grilled smelt, period.

But seriously: can we agree that at least One internet has occurred between netscape and now? Let's peg this down.

I was actually using internets as a currency, my bad.

no, you can't say "netscape and now" without signifying the beginning or the end of netscape.

also, as true to internets, should the unit of time internet measures decrease as we reach singularity?
