Question for you all. What other cozy forums do you guys browse? Things as big as FTN or slightly bigger only please. I've always loved the vibe here and would love to add to that vibe.

Is it just me, or does the world feel more tense now than it did during the 2016 U.S election. Brexit, Yellow Vests, Shootings, it just doesn't end. Perhaps I need to take a real mental break from all of this inasmuch as possible. Will still be on the forum of course, just going to avoid politicing for a while.

I think it's fair to say bitcoin has corrected from being oversold now. ETH still has yet to correct up though, should be at least 300-400$ now.

My mom works for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. She just told me today that the internal research bulletin sent out a memo to employees predicting their lifespan. My mother is 53. She said they predicted she will live to be 90 and that modern research in healthspan will keep her without debilitating health conditions until the last 5 years of her life. Vis. She will be healthy and able bodied/minded until at least 85.

    That means she has an average chance of living until 2056 where she was born in 1965 according to mainstream medical research. Now, apply how young most of us here are, even Wjfox, and add to that what unexpected breakthroughs and unorthodox research like the SENS foundation might yield by 2056. I think most here do have a fair shot at making to LEV.

    I think I have a better than 50% chance of reaching LEV. I plan to begin regular health checks (blood tests, cholesterol monitoring, etc.) and get my genome sequenced in the next few years. I've made some excellent improvements to my diet, and I get regular exercise now.

I don't know if I should be happy that Elon is talking about ethereum for the free publicity. Or concerned that more clowns who don't understand what they're talking about are getting involved in the space. We already have a lot of a billionaire fuckbois and I'd trade them all for more devs.

What a black person means when they say #BlackLivesMatter: Please pay attention to police brutality the cops are shooting us in the streets. . . What a dumbass on the internet pretends to think it means: That’s self evident, of course black lives matter, all lives do. I feign believing in equality after all. What about other people, black lives aren't superior after all?

    I sympathize with your desire to not get banned. However I'm not deleting my own posts, I never do in order to maintain my integrity. That goes for when I'm wrong and right. You're free to do as you wish with your own posts though.

    I have not shone patience or virtue in this post. For that I am sorry. This thankfully happens less than it used to. That doesn't mean I agree with any of you, just that I could have conducted myself better.

There is now a golden cross on of the 50-daySMA and the 200-daySMA on both Ethereum and Bitcoin. A golden cross in the exponential moving averages aren't that far behind but aren't in yet.

    A golden cross is a bullish signal for a market where a relatively short-term moving average crosses a above a long-term moving average. In the example above there is a golden cross when the example 15day-SMA crosses the 50-daySMA. Exponential moving averages (EMA) are a tad more complex to calculate so I'll spare putting the formula to words. The primary difference between SMAs and EMAs are that EMAs put more weight and significance on the most recent data points in the average.

    Sorry in advance for the colors swapping around. The first chart is of ethereum where the blue line is the 50day-SMA and the red line the 200day-SMA. Trading volume is also represented by the bars on the bottom of the chart.

    Notice how there was a golden cross back in March of 2017 before the last bull run, and a death cross (when the 50day falls below the 200day) before the market crash. A golden cross alongside increasing trading volume is an indicator of a coming bull market. It can take months or even sometimes a year for the market to reflect such an indicator though. And nothing is guaranteed, this is just a major statistical indicator. You're absolutely right. It is very exciting :D

    Watch some zero books/philosophy tube/big joal and read Bullshit Jobs by David Greaber and What is Anarchism by Alexander Berkman is you ever want some redpills my dude. No hard theory, just some places to start. I also don't 100% agree with any of those people, more I pull things I like. For example I think Philosophy Tube is a postmodernist and screw that.

    You also get under my skin with your trolls sometimes because I guess I think certain things shouldn't be joked about in certain contexts. I don't hate you, what you actually do in the world and believe are two different things and your ambitions to work at OpenAI I believe are genuine and ultimately good for the world.

Thought: Common rebuttal to worker self management. "Do you really think people can manage themselves?" Excluding mondragon for the moment. Excluding that people manage themselves outside of work for the moment. How did humans work before bosses? Something that a lot of folks don't realize is that peasants self managed for centuries. Their product was still controlled sure, but the lord of the land didn't care how they got it.

    I'd also say that (to generalise massively) engineers/computer scientists have literally the opposite focus to what is ideal for management.

    Good managers need people skills, they need to sit back and look at the big picture, and they need focus on multiple simultaneous projects while juggling the needs of dozens of employees, often with different conflicting stakeholders above them they need to answer to.

    Still, with training and work plenty of engineers can becom...

    -become good managers.

    Engineers obviously vary a lot but (except those managing teams) they all need to be able to focus down on one task at a time in a lot of detail until they completely understand the issue and can build or adapt the system to solve that problem, then move onto the next bit. That's what those careers must select for.
