Having watched the Chernobyl miniseries on HBO, I can assure you that I wouldn’t be thinking about Bitcoin if a nuclear war kicked off. I’d be trying to get my hands on some potassium iodide pills, and hoping that I never face the horrors of radiation poisoning.
If you watched the HBO series, “Chernobyl” there is that firefighter guy, they get him in quarantine with other firefighters. At first, they are in bed in pain with terrible burns on their skin. Doctors expect them to die in very short time. One day, that guys wife enters in their room and these nearly dead guys are sitting over a table and play games and have chattering. His wife and us, the viewers kind of shocked when we see them alive and well. Next thing happens to that firefighter guy is he is becoming “something”. He is in a seperate room with extra care and his skin turns into something disqusting. He cannot talk or move and just lays in bed in pain. His wife is shocked he became a fried chicked all of a sudden. Than finally, he dies. And burried in concrite because of the amount of radiation he observed.

That's not what happened. It was an employee of the 3rd party, Simon Marketing, McDonalds contracted to run the contest who was selling the winning pieces to his acquaintances. There's a documentary on HBO about it called McMillion$, it's pretty interesting.
The Netflix/HBO/Hulu limited series writers now have to rush back and alter their treatment. Fuck it. I’m gonna start sharing the details with ChatGPT (I call them Chet, I asked politely and they said it was ok to call them that. Seriously. You can work with them like that. And yes, Chet is a they. I’m sure a Synthetic wouldn’t consider themselves a man or woman…that’s a Biologic thing) and ask if a detailed treatment can be spun up. First we will need a catchy title. I’ll suggest it has the tone of a melange of The Big Short and Thank You For Smoking.
Sorry for thread necromancy but there is such a thing as a [long strangle](https://www.theoptionsguide.com/long-strangle.aspx) and [long straddle](https://www.barchart.com/options/long-straddle) where you benefit *both* from something going way up or way down (but not from staying near its current price.) Though I don't think that would work here since there wasn't a market in FTT options. Or, as the HBO Silicon Valley meme: "This guy strangles."
Yes, FTX had a ship full of whale investors besides retail. Interestingly, the HBO series “Industry” about the l drama around a fictional hedge fund, featured a segment where they had a guy from their FTX desk explain crypto to a prospective investor.
tldr; HBO's "Silicon Valley" character Gilfoyle on the show's fifth season gave a PowerPoint presentation about cryptocurrency to Pied Piper CEO Richard Hendricks in an episode called "Initial Coin Offering". The show's writers were inspired to make the presentation after a talk they received from Henry Berg, an engineer and bitcoin guru credited at the end of the presentation. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

For everyone that said Cable TV, streaming services ect, ect. Look into The Crew Kodi add-on and Pair it with a RD subscription($3 a month) you will have everything you need, Every steaming service. Netflix, HBO, Disney + Prime video ect, Live sports feeds all for $3.
So I was watching Rich and Shameless on HBO Max with my girlfriend and the last episode was about billionaire Paul Nygard and sex trafficking underage women and political corruption in the Bahamas. This made me instantly think of that.
tldr; Neon Media is the publisher behind the upcoming first-person shooter multiplayer Web3 game Shrapnel. The game is being built on the Avalanche subnet and the Unreal 5 graphics game engine. The team behind Shrapnel, made up of entertainment veterans from HBO and Microsoft, has been working to include future players in the game's development. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

Do you have HBO? There’s a doc called “We Met in Virtual Reality” the doc has no narrative. The people in the worlds are interviewed inside VRchat. But understanding how powerful finding a global community online for the deaf (they sign using their avatar) is….how many people feel they can be their true selves using an avatar made me realize the CEO of Nvidia is correct. The virtual economy will be larger then the economy of the Actual.
There is a crypto blogging platform where people posted stuff and they paid out crypto based on how much attention it got... the two people in The Anarchists on HBO were using it John and his methed out girlfriend. What is that shit called???
Why not shut down Netflix?HBO?Steam? You say bitcoin don't solve a problem, we disagree. But entertainment def don't solve problems other than giving lazy ass ppl timeconsumption to waste there life on. And you say social media solve real problems. Big tech today is manipulating ppl through science to keep Them online as Long as possible so they can cash out on ads and sell ppls privacy. Id say thats a lot of energy waste and human resource waste. As ppl already stated this is hipocracy. Our whole society is basically built around wasting energy to keep increacing GDP and let a fraction of the population to become richer. There is so much waste in the world its unfathomable... I agree bitcoin as a speculation is a waste, but its the mence by which it can expand to solve a real problem, the current system.
> Holding 1 btc doesn't elicit feelings or emotions the way that touching or owning something culturally significant does. I don't agree and as you suggest it's too early to tell yet. It was the world's first means of issuing, storing and sending money/property/value without a central institution. It's been referenced in many TV shows and movies. The new HBO show The Time Traveler's Wife being one I noticed recently. Superman 1 or Action Comics 1 don't provide a service anyway. They are just collectables. Bitcoin can be a collectable too but it has a network and a means of storing it.
Not all ‘profiting’ from tragedy is equal. I don’t think anybody is going to say that Full Metal Jacket , Apocalypse Now, HBO Chernobyl, Das boot, Sophie’s Choice are just exploiting their subject matter. Moreover, they actually reflect talent, unlike this random spaceman posed exactly like the falling man.
Calling nuclear energy “green energy” is breaking my brain. Like, I get it. I understand why we say that. But having just recently watched the Chernobyl series on HBO again, it sure didn’t look too “green”, lol. I’m torn on nuclear power. The argument is “it’s very safe”, but the effects on the environment when something catastrophic happens are, well, catastrophic. Therefore, the acceptable rate of failure should be ZERO … and yet, we’ve had multiple disastrous nuclear meltdowns over the years. Even if we continue, going forward, at the CURRENT RATE OF FAILURE, it’s very very bad.
Shrapnel [https://www.shrapnel.com/](https://www.shrapnel.com/) looks promising to me. A shooter with a studio based in Seattle and talent from Halo, CoD, Destiny, BioShock. Well funded and also backed by HBO with interesting concepts. No gameplay video yet, but it's aiming for AAA execution. Most NFT games are starting to move out of the cryptokitties, axie infinity garbage game phase and attempting to move towards f2p mobile and AAA gameplay and execution but not there yet.
One benefit of broader decentralization I think is that eventually we will be able to do away with a lot of server farms. The HBO show silicone valley touches on this. If we could decentralize the internet, then everyone’s phone or internet device could theoretically perform most of their own processing as well as part of everyone else’s. No one entity or group of organizations will “own” the processing power and therefore the traffic belongs to everybody using the internet. We’d probably end up spending more on personal electronics more frequently because of increased processing requirements shortening device lifetimes though
Digital universal currency will be different from digital assets. The use cases will be vast, but it’s like asking someone in the late 70’s/ early 80’s “whats the use case for the internet” and most people giving you an answer like search engines or databases without something like social media being on anybody’s minds for another couple decades. Digital ownership already exists, it’s just not actually yours most the time. Every time you buy a movie or a piece of music there is a license associated with it (that is non-transferable). This helps every distributer - Amazon, Netflix, HBO, Apple, but it severely limits the artist(s) ability to create for themselves. Digital property, digital property associated with physical property (something like old fashioned baseball cards + NFTs = virtually counterfeit/fraud proof) once the digital world is as much a part of peoples lives as the physical, blockchain ends up fixing things that are about identity and ownership in a digital space. Also some logistical supply chain issues, identity theft issues, voting issues. You can argue most products attempt to “create necessity that is not necessary” regardless of the decentralization aspect. Going to space is not necessary, teslas are not necessary, a new phone next year is not necessary, Netflix is not necessary, the ability to online shop is not necessary etc etc etc. It’s not so black and white that only currency is the only use case for blockchain. If that were the case ethereum would not be as strong as it is. Or even ATOM for that matter. Most financial systems are better on blockchain just for the fact that money can move at night, on weekends, and public holidays. And for anybody who deals with remittances. But blockchain is only just beginning on the use cases past currency. Sure there’s been a whole lot of flops, but there’s somewhere greater than 10 and probably less than 25 good use cases for blockchain.
.73 BTC= 22,000. 13k in AT&T, Boeing, HBO, and General Electric stock, i think about exiting the market every day. 45k in cash. Sitting close to an eighty thousand dollar net worth, I was work 100k before the December crash (bought at 48k a coin). I have zero debt and would say I’m doing pretty solid for someone who is under 25 years of age
LOL, how would this be devastating? Crypto didn't invite human nature in 2019. This could be assumed to occur in every category of human activity. The US government, the Catholic Church, the Disney corporation, HBO, Spain, the NFL, Wall Street, all are still standing. Some dude wants to play God and DM allegations around that can't be verified so will stay in the memory. Humans are cause. Humans can be good and can be bad. We can make them more good by focusing on the good.
Obviously cryptocurrency is full of scams, but if you can cut through the shit then there is one promising aspect as opposed to shares. I recently watched the “Gaming Wall St” HBO documentary and was shocked to find out about naked short selling, which is essentially when shares are created that don’t exist. This means a company may have 1000 shares for example, but there are 1,200 shares on the market. At least with reliable cryptocurrency you know that there will always be the exact right amount of coins due to blockchain technology. (After reading this back I just realised that “reliable cryptocurrency” is a good oxymoron lol)
