Slightly back on topic. While I dont condone this site what so ever, the very existence of it most likely had a part in the awareness of BTC and crypto's.
So some good came out of something bad .
Ya know, it's right funny that some people make a big deal out of crypto being used for drug transactions when the US $100 bill is the most common form of drug currency.
Having hit a real-world deal today, I got about 25 of them nasty cocaine-laced promises to pay in my wallet.
Should I burn them?
Toss them into the street?
Give them to "God"?
Think I'll hit up a supplier and buy a few more GPUs so I can continue the "drug connection"!

A song from the early 1900s:
"Now, all you cokies
You're gonna be dead
If you don't stop sniffin' that stuff in your head!
Come on baby, won't you have a little sniff on me?
Have sniff on me?"
"The Ballad of Cocaine Bill And Morphine Sue":
One thing we are sure of is that the Pure Food And Drug Act of 1906 took away our right to ingest whatever the Hell we wanted.
"Well, they came to a drug store filled with smoke*
There was a sign on the door sayin' "No More Coke!"
*The smoke was pot smoke because pot was legal back then......................
Those were the days.........................................
