Then, we would all be in the same boat. Misery loves company. We will count together. "One trillion, two trillion, three trillion..."

If that should happen, the bitcoin holders will say "I told you so. One bitcoin, two bitcoins..."

I absolutely agree, and I'm glad to have you remind us occasionally about our inability to take it with us.

Every week I look at the recycle bins out in the driveway and just shake my head when I see my next door neighbor's bin full of Bud Light cans. I'm sure he does the same if he sees a few empty Orval or Westmalle bottles in mine. But I think we're each happy with our choices.
I thought growing old would take longer.

Wow, these are Exquisite. What knife smith would you recommend to someone who is interested in blowing roughly 1/10th as much? Nationality not important. Smoothness of mechanism and durability/reliability are what tickle my fancy.
Why be normal when you can be yourself?

I would not hesitate to go with Frank Beltrame or AGA Campolin, both are the real Italian deal and are smooth and well made by hand.

For about 4-500, you can get something from those same makers way more upscale.

Check your state laws on full autos. Here in CA they are legal to own but not to carry.
Retired at 59 in 2014. Should have done it sooner but I worried too much.
