10 Year Old Chinese Guitar Genius

If all 10 year old girls play as good as her, who would need adult bands, right?  All I can say is wow!  She’s only 10 years of age or so, a little bit younger or older I’ve no idea, but she plays like she is a professional adult guitarist.  I can’t imagine how good she could be even more when she grows older.  I mean, at her level and age, I can only say wow.  I think her nickname is Yoyo, but her real name is Liu Pinxi.  She’s from China.  Check out her video right after the break and be amazed!

 

Why I Think Bitcoin Is Not Ready For Prime Time

So Bitcoin becomes the rage again for unknown reasons.  Today Bitcoin price is going through the roof.  As of this writing a single Bitcoin is equating to $2251 (US Dollar).  I can see the allures of Bitcoin, but I can also see so many drawbacks.  Let’s talk about the drawbacks shall we?

First, one of the biggest drawbacks of Bitcoin for me is not be able to sell Bitcoin anonymously through an exchange.  Instead, the exchange requires you to send your info includes your social security number before you get verified and be able to do any trading of Bitcoin.  This means if an exchange gets hack, all of  your info is going to be shared or be sold to any unknown parties.  Of course you can argue that lot of your information is already in places that are being stored online and can still be hacked easily.  I argue that at least the government agencies and banking institutions are perhaps more willing to protect your information than some Bitcoin exchanges.  Thus, hacking into these institutions may not be easily done, and once it is being done the government would definitely go after such hackers in a big way.  So, at least you know you got huge resources to look after your information in a more serious manner.

Second, another biggest drawback is that many Bitcoin exchanges cannot be trusted, because not only they’d gotten hacked way too many times before but some of them also run away with your bitcoins.  This means if an exchange decides to stop doing business and just run away with your bitcoins, you’re basically losing all of your bitcoins on a specific Bitcoin exchange.  This is why I don’t think it’s wise to store any of your bitcoins on a Bitcoin exchange besides just enough bitcoins for selling purpose.  Once buying a bitcoin on an exchange it’s wise to transfer the bitcoin out of the exchange immediately and into your more secure Bitcoin wallet that stores on your local machine/computer.

Third, another biggest drawback is that you can lose all of your bitcoins easily if a computer that you’re using to store all of your bitcoins got corrupted hard drives.  This means if you cannot rescue a specific corrupted hard drive that stores all of your bitcoins, you basically lose all of your bitcoins forever.  Thus, I think some people may adopt storing their bitcoins on multiple machines in multiple wallets, so they don’t have to worry about having all of their eggs in one basket.  Some people also do backups for their Bitcoin wallets’ data to ensure that Bitcoin wallets’ data won’t get corrupted easily.  It is also wise to encrypt the partition or partitions that you store your Bitcoin wallets’ data, and only this way you can protect your bitcoins from being stolen easily.  Basically, encrypting a partition on top of already encrypted Bitcoin wallet’s data is like having one more security layer.

Fourth, another biggest drawback is that Bitcoin is still not being accepted widely.  Sure, there are many places that may accept Bitcoin, but there are also so many many places that do not accept Bitcoin.

Fifth, another biggest drawback is that Bitcoin can be confusing for people who have no experiences with computer.  Some people in older generations will not be able to understand how to use Bitcoin, and so it’s going to be exotic and hard to use for them.  To use Bitcoin, one must know how to securely protect your bitcoins in a Bitcoin wallet and on a secure machine, but these measures are probably just gibberish for people who do not have the ability to use computers correctly.  Especially, if they do not know how to use computer in a secure manner, they are going to get hack easily and lose all of their bitcoins.

Sixth, another biggest drawback is that many governments are not recognizing Bitcoin as currency, and so Bitcoin is in a grey area in which so many different laws are being applied to Bitcoin.  This means you have to use Bitcoin differently in each country, and so laws that regulate Bitcoin in one country doesn’t behave similarly to laws in another country.  Of course you can argue that cash are not the same in all countries, but cash are legal tender — thus there are specified laws that may apply on the usage of cash even though such cash are not printed in the specific country or countries.  Some governments are outright hostile toward Bitcoin, thus they’re banning Bitcoin outright.

Seventh, another biggest drawback is that some governments are making you as a target of investigation for using Bitcoin, because they think Bitcoin is a way to facilitate dirty money.

These are the drawbacks and other drawbacks that I may not have stated that prevent me from seeing Bitcoin as a sure way that can replace the traditional money.  Furthermore, I like to have the option of Bitcoin and digital currencies and traditional currencies in digital forms, but I also like even more to see that traditional currencies in the form of cash that do not go away.  Why?  Anything that is tangible is definitely harder to be erased and made disappear.  This means your wealth can be protected better even it means securing them under your mattresses.  If your wealth can just go poof in an instant, it means your wealth is not being secured in a correct form or forms.  Because Bitcoin has so many weaknesses, I think it’s not wise to convert a huge portion of your wealth into bitcoins at all.

United Airlines Training Video? Beating Passenger Up For Refusing To Give Up Paid Seat For UA’s Own Employees.

This could be United Airlines’ training video.  Check it out and you would laugh yourself to tear at the video, but feel disgusting about UA’s recent idiotic action.  Why?  Well, recently UA decided it was wise to bloodied a man face and dragged him off the plane like an animal for he refused to give up his paid seat for one of UA’s employees.  I mean, the people that involved in the incident got no common sense at all.  Plus, it tells me that people are definitely capable of being a slave to corporation and treating another human being like an animal.  After all, we all know animals can be abused and killed by humans for fun.  You know, like on a hunt for pleasure.  Anyhow, check out the video right after the break and you’ll see why I mean UA’s training video could have come out of this video.
