Avatar is Morpheus, God of Dreams.
$5,035 Bid deposit made, terabytes of information (mainly imagery) combed through researching prospective purchases, much driving to dusty desolate places completed. There's good money potential in this, but don't mistake that for easy money. Ready for the auction next week!
I've wanted to do this for 20 years, and studied a LOT starting way back then. Glad to finally have the liquid capital available so I can jump in and be a player! I'm just hoping the entire Western monetary system doesn't collapse around me right as I hit a new stride. It's gotten to the point where this is a very real possibility within the next year. Used to be it was a running JOKE to show different investment portfolio recommendations based on certain financial indices, with the bottom two recommending increasing percentages into ammunition and yams. Now, that isn't really even a joke anymore!
Hope there's enough time to do a few years of this first!Read More
@MentORPHEUS The point being some grindy wars. What would Russia say? That "Their new standard weapons are too much for us!"?
Part of me thinks that large part of the conflict strategy is to glut the region in so many black market NATO rounds that people stop using Russian rounds. Sanction the Russian rounds, glut the market in NATO rounds, and then switch the American system to a new one (6.8mm) so that entire new stockpiles need to be made. The US military gets to buy first, and so this helps to keep the rounds out of American patriot militia hands.
@MentORPHEUS I'm guessing that American war mongers would like another year or so to enter the war because they've settled on the new 6.8mm weapons. If massive war were to happen too soon then likely the upgrade plan would get scrapped since that isn't the thing to do right as you need to mobilize for deployment. These new standard computerized optics and fast bullets would make for some pretty good fighting on the flat-as-fuck Ukrainian plains.
@destraht Hopefully something as innocuous as this shakes people awake en masse instead of them waiting for Americans to incrementally get all the way to involved in the actual shooting war.
History shows, we'll stupidly march forward wrapped in one American flag and waving another.
@MentORPHEUS Ukraine won by the public phoning in. So it's not so much of a centralized conspiracy because the public did it, except that central planners caused them to love "Keeev" so much that everything else be damned. I think that the public knows damn well what they did. For them they imagine that this big Fuck You to Russia is the next level of natural progression from dancing TikTok videos for Ukraine. You know - the thing that really wins wars.
@destraht Just looked and it happened; Ukraine was handed that victory. Let's see if there's post-nut clarity on Sunday and beyond. Maybe it'll turn out like when they released that "I'd like to buy the world a Coke" commercial song or The Fonz jumping the shark, where everyone watching had their suspension of rational disbelief broken all at the same time. A collective "Meh" and turning away from taking the subject seriously.
That's my naively optimistic "I'd like to buy the world a clue" hope, anyway.
Post-wall former dancer pivots to new career posing dead mice in stripper dioramas. Vegans hate her.
@MentORPHEUS We don't seem to have a lot of predators here. Just cold weather and politics. Also what few predators would be running wild wouldn't like that the entire area smells like dog and with them having the full run of the place. At some point though I expect to lose one or two until the next level of planning can happen.
My worker just proposed to bury the cast iron bathtub that I picked up some months ago to use as a pond. It might be cool, but there are downsides like you said. It could get weird.
@MentORPHEUS I explained that in detail to you already some weeks ago. I'll do it again.
I didn't really want to know in that situation. I was more interested in having a laugh at the American government. That is likely because they had fucked everything up over here so much, because I resent what America has become, and because it validated my life over here to have that cheap laugh. I know the difference between that emotion and the obsessive 12 hour multi-day research sessions that I've done for other issues.
I get that you can't tell the difference what my exact mental state and motivations are in real time, but then again, you weren't even active here at that time. I was already far past that by the time that crawled out of your Internet sewer to remember about me and then to look me up to tell me that I was wrong after scrolling through my history.
The fact that it went down like that on your side makes you a bitch. You seem to imagine yourself as this blameless timeless entity that doesn't affect the things that he is observing or interacting with. I mean that you often simply just poo up the most important conversations. This big gotcha moment of yours was very late in the timeframe of over here. You weren't in that conversation. You're just poo littering skeptic who bumbles around noticing irrelevantly later when someone made a mistake, and being so dedicated to your cause to rarely be able to give credit when and where it was due. Just poo.Read More
