Jesus, a decimation of young males. So much for learning from our mistakes

300,000 conscripted troops with a possibility of 700,000 more means a TON of possible deserters. Russia has an officer driven military. Those officers will be very few and far in-between and in charge of keeping large numbers of conscripts in line. The Russian logistical network is also rough, and I highly doubt they'll be able to keep up with 300,000 new people. Which basically means:

1. Executions for deserters will skyrocket

2. Food, medicine, and supplies will be minimal. Including winter gear..

3. The Ukrainian POW system is going to be overrun with people. They are probably taking better care of prisoners than the Russians (recent footage from prisoner exchanges have been horrid). But not that much better.

Best option is to get out before they can snag you. Deserting is the last ditch of all attempts.

Wait you're using allnodes? I would not have guessed that you are using a third-party staking service.

On another note staking is a lot more accessible nowadays with the prominence of liquid staking derivatives.

Wow these are fantastic, I absolutely love them

I’m dying right now. So many idiots making idiotic decisions.

There's a lot not being said about the IL and one of those is that you most likely would have never been allowed into country in the first place. For the best, that is not a place you want to be. At all. Should I go it will not be with the IL.

I hope that things getting worse in Russia will lead to changes. It may be a misplaced hope and we do truly see a NK equivalent, but in the meantime it gives me an excuse for having the same terrible thoughts as you.

Fucking hell man, there hasn't been a day gone by where I haven't thought about accepting the offer to fight. Volunteering was able to scratch the itch.. but this is just something else. Fuck.

I just watched a doc on Alanis Morrisette and apparently they called Chris in after auditions completely on accident-they had meant to call someone else. Taylor Hawkins made a comment that he didn’t know who Janes addiction was at the time, which is perfect considering he now plays with them. What a cool guy to know.

Thank you. I speak a decent amount of Russian and I had a Ukrainian friend check my other translations. One small other linguistic fun fact- иди на хуй, the Russian phrase for "go fuck yourself" is more or less directly translated to "go sit on a dick".

Donate to the right places. Giving money to any smuggling operation is just lining pockets. This fund puts money in the right places

When I get home I’ll post my collection of billboards/posters. Ukrainian psyops campaigns are unreal

I’ll add a shameless plug for rocketpool here. Fully decentralized staking+fully liquid. Pretty much the only protocol I would run shared validators through

I should have absolutely elaborated and explained that the hack was rooted in solana, it’s an important distinction. I’ve been ruminating on very similiar ideas since the hack, mostly why the hell solana still has popularity. Or really any of the other L1 chains. Any other chain makes at least one sacrifice in the blockchain triangle and in the end those are the fundamentals that drive crypto.

I think the nature of the hack is slightly hilarious as well. As a more technical person explained to me, the exploit+fix was actually publicly published for anyone to see, and wormhole just didn’t fix it. $320 million of negligence is quite a beautiful thing to see sometimes.

Last week about $250 million of eth was stolen through a bridge… and it more or less can’t be touched. The moment is was stolen it’s pretty much blacklisted by every exchange and app. Wherever that money moves it will always be tracked. The hackers are basically limited to small amounts of privacy coin transfer. As you said they’d be better off with a suitcase of cash. It’s hard to imagine governments not absolutely loving crypto.

There are a lot of emotions running deep today. The past nine years have one hell of a trip. The person I was when I signed my name on the dotted line is vastly different from the one who signed out today. I've had quite a few drinks to celebrate the end so it's a little bit difficult to truly reflect but.. man idk. I'll try and put together a small album together within the next couple days of my favorite moments. The military has allowed me to meet countless interesting people, visit 30+ countries, and develop myself to a level I would have never before thought possible. While I never posted much on hubski I would like to thank y'all for keeping me somewhat grounded-just lurking and reading has been significant. When surrounded by the echo chamber of the army this website has always been a refuge to maintain at least a little intellectual capacity.

I also hate every aspect of this but for different reasons. Big business and government will eventually shift to blockchain. But that is horrifying in it's own right. I mean hell, one of this guy's examples is Donald Trump being censored. Our social media platforms are already horrible enough, imagine if they're completely unmoderated.
