A surprising comment on the End of Bitcoin thread:

"...There is kraken which is US based and doesn't have such requirements. 

Why do you want to trade a market where you are emotionally biased and have no inner knowledge about? ..."

Kraken?  Those are not originally from the US.   

But wherever they are based, it looks like this whale is about to gain some inner knowledge of the kraken (and visa versa.)

Maritime markets are unpredictable and dangerous!

Recently - maybe because spring is coming - a recurring dream about a new way to travel.

Stay tuned!

So, every now and then for years I have had a dream where I am running in a weightless world. I can make huge floating leaps, but it’s hard to go fast - so generally I have tried to perfect the form of the arcs and worked on the ability to change direction in long smooth curves.

However, recently this dream has developed a new facet and I have learned how to go fast - by growing wings!

They are really wide and strong and I have to practice carefully because the speed is amazing, but quickly on the outer edge of control. :D

It is fun though.  Also have to work on my running takeoffs and landings. So I am some kind of horse-eagle hybrid now. Haha!

Dreamed about organizing a poker game at a big outdoor party on Nantucket.

Ah, Nantucket!
Yes, a wonderful place especially in the fall.

Maybe I will go there for a few days next week.

See if there are any poker games going on in the evening. :D
