These are some good deals.
That $200 C2034 “Modern Home” kit is just under $5000 adjusted for inflation which includes a kitchen, fireplace, and porch.
Compare to this wooden shed I found online where the closest, slightly smaller, sized one is nearly $6000; and that’s pretty much just a wooden box. https://www.alansfactoryoutlet.com/wood-storage-shed-prices
I always imagine worst case scenarios involving thousands of deaths and probably explosions.
This is just a very, very expensive train. I’m not sure why anyone would think building something in a very expensive state would not itself be very expensive. Did we expect building major infrastructure in an expensive state to be surprisingly cheap?
The joke will be on society after half of this stuff gets refined down to ultimate simplicity (like bicycles), and the other half is refined to a point of “good enough” (like terminals) where no one cares anymore.
2:40 minute head time at your departure city? No way.
I typically show up roughly 60-45 minutes prior to flight time, so 15-30 minutes before boarding. By the time I get through security the plane is typically just starting to board and I walk right on.
I have gotten my door to door times between MSP and ORD to just over (sometimes under if I get lucky on train to city) 3 hours including a 20 minute Uber on one end and a 40 minute train ride into the city on the other. Pretty similar distances involved.
> going through onerous security
I imagine that in the US, this will be much the same. Or will be the moment after the first attack on a train. I don’t see any long-term security gains here, the US is simply not Europe.
Fair point. All I was trying to show was that currencies like the Euro or USD has greater than zero energy usage to create/distribute.
I don’t think BTC will stay the top crypto if it cannot resolve its current issues (though new ones will come after). Articles like takes stance, whether they know it or not, of this is here to stay for a long time and we need to deal with the ramifications. If that is true, more people are going to work on solving this issue either through energy regulation, better hardware, better renewable energy, mass adoption of different coins, or moving to POS (or anything other proof system) instead of POW.
I don’t think it is. If the > workers DOING THE ACTUAL WORK are able to provide more value than the corporation, then why are they working for the corporation instead of providing more value than the corporation by themselves; and paying themselves more than the corporation pays them? I think OP’s argument could be an example of reductio ad absurdum.
In typical hackernews fashion, most of the comment (even the top comment) is someone downplaying someone else’s brilliance.
Why cant you just be happy for the kid?
Some people are just plain better than you. And its OKAY. Most of us here are average, and will probably never see our own success story published like this. Kid has done and contributed so much at a young age. His skills has benefited us all. Lets just be happy for him.
I hired these guys and they never showed. I was in contact with them every hour, being reassured they were just running late. Eventually they stopped responding.
By midnight I gave up and threw half my stuff on the curb and UberXL’ed my clothes and small items to my new apartment.
Unfortunately I had a flight at 3am so couldn’t handle a cancelation, which is my fault.
