I want this in laptop sticker format.

Thanks a lot for the input. I'd like to see where Google, Amazon, Netflix will fall into place here. Being the only actors powerful enough to make a difference in the legislation, a company could try to profit from winning over competitors' consumers by openly lobbying for neutrality. Or something, I don't know.

Third now. It's still mostly core classes that are largely unrelated to each other, such that within 24 hours I have final exams in Persian, American Foreign Policy, and Physics.

The hard part at my school isn't the academics alone, but it's getting the academic work done through the vast, writhing shitstorm of a million smaller time-sucking responsibilities on the military side of things. Takes a lot of mental endurance. I'm working on it!

Have you graduated already? How are things over there, where the grass is greener?

Finals week starting with my first exam this Saturday morning. This week I'm handing in final papers and projects and learning the final lessons of this fucking difficult, kick-my-ass rollercoaster of a semester. Good luck to everyone else taking finals. Fuck I wish I had a half-decent work ethic.

I'm overhearing conversations about Bitcoin all throughout campus. Especially in the last week. Hell, the old ladies at the barbershop were talking about buying Bitcoin this morning. The majority at my school are not tech-savvy outside of their academic specializations, investment-savvy, or even appear to be up-to-date at all on society from 2012 onward.

It makes me nervous that everyone here is buying up. Or at least talking about it. I don't have evidence or knowledge to back up why it ought to make people nervous, but I feel like yelling the end is nigh.

Have you held since your last post at 2.60, veen? Just curious, this is impressive.

So i just had to play Secretary of Defense in advising the National Security Council on authorizing the CIA to use enhanced interrogation techniques on a guy who may or may not have information on a series of possible suicide bombings around the American embassy in Jordan.

Long story short, I had to advocate that we break a bunch of laws because I had to offer a Jacksonian approach to the problem and that’s how I had to do it. My side won and I got the only A in the class. Proud, I guess, but not happy :S

I’m sorry Abdul. I hope you make it out of this with most of your fingers.

Hah, so cool. Hope you and your enjoy the hell out of that.

    In the U.S. lying to the FBI is a serious crime. (I am not aware of other country that has such a stupid rule.

Ah, yes, major political actors lying to federal authorities on investigations into suspected threats to national security. Why om Earth shouldn’t that be allowed /s

while my instinct here is to facepalm, how cool would it be if Venezuela becomes the first nation to rebuild its economy on the back of a crypto acting as its primary national currency.

This is an awesome idea! How do you set it up?
