Wow that's so bogus. In America they can't charge you with possession unless there is evidence. Not to mention, if the police are called to help with drug-related stuff, they're not allowed to get you in trouble (in my state anyway). Like if there is a heroin using party going on, and someone ODs and they call an ambulance and cops show up too, no one is allowed to get in trouble.
Sounds like a great fucking law, makes so much sense

Yeah I'm pretty proud of my state for it, they passed it a couple of years ago, it's called the something harm reduction initiative. Lots of people were dying because they or their friends were too scared to call 911 when overdoses happened.

Man that sucks i cant believe some countries are charging people with drug possession if they call for a ambulance for help. here in nz police won't charge people either as ambulances really want people to call for help without fear of getting in trouble.

I fully agree yes, I do have an impeccable criminal record and a so called innocent appearance to fall back on.

You guys know shiey? Excellent YouTube content, this is one of his best vids ----- Switzerland :)

Classic! Everyone with their different jacks and cables, a true rip off, laptops, phones, headphones... and being cheap and ordering a non brand one off Ebay or Amazon often doesn't work either

it sucks because they cost a bit in nz due to the shipping costs involved retailers and our currency been so weak to the usd these days. though i should not complain i got these for free when my friend ordered a bunch of hd 598s reburnished from america for $120 nzd each and sold like 10 of them for profit and gave me one. Put this cable through 5 years of punishment. Just caved and found a audio store couple hours drive which has a longer cable which ill go get and keep one of them stored incase this happens in the future i don't want to wait another few weeks. I can not stand listening to music on these shitty basic airphones.

will go get this 2.5m cable maybe in 2 days. and leave the 1.2m cable for use in my phone and 2.5m cable on the computer.

anybody here ever use a chrome book. thinking of picking a cheap one up to write notes in google docs. cbf paying any amount on a laptop when i have my desktop just want to be able to pull up notes in class.

I totally feel like the entire world is ripping everybody off with the price of goods these days. I swear things should be getting cheaper instead of more expensive. There should come a time when a company is already making billions not to rise prices any higher.

Hell even mcdonalds keeps increasing the price of food every couple months here sneakily during there promotions. Yet McDonalds international profit margin is fucking insane and they still wont pay there workers more than min wage. Also know of a mcdonalds frachnisee owner here who makes 10 million a year in two stores. I wish those workers at least got a decent pay rate because mcdonalds can afford to do it. Instead some fat cunt at the top sits on endless wealth.

heroin using party
That sounds like a situation from a Degrassi episode where a main character decides at the last minute not to go to the 'heroin using party' but just as they're celebrating making the right choices in life, the phone rings and it's revealed everyone at the big heroin party caught 🔥 and fucking died.

The moral is: life on heroin is no party.

I’ve never used one but from what I always heard it’s excellent bang for buck, if you can establish like a good flow of information from ChromeOS -> Windows/Linux I don’t think you’ll regret it at all.

I used to sell Chromebooks as a computer salesman... or rather, not sell them and steer people towards Windows tablets. I'm not a fan of Windows 10 spyware but it's still a heck of a lot better than Chrome OS, it's useless and Chromebooks come with no storage options last I checked. This was 3 years ago, they may be better now.

I spoke with my good friend who is deeply involved in the legal cannabis industry last night. We talked about the stock market, the past few years he has made a ton of money in it. With some good picks from him (including a company a month away from offering its IPO which he is convinced will become one of the major players), I have started to develop a strategy. I want to position myself in a mix of broad-span ETFs (pretty safe as long as the market doesn't crash) and cannabis companies. The legal cannabis industry is in its infancy, as states legalize, and especially with federal legalization, we will see a new industry boom. Today, I am watching BTC climb higher overnight. There are two US BTC mining companies at the forefront that I've been watching for weeks, they follow BTC almost exactly. So I've stuck a big chunk of money in them to see if I can catch a quick ride up today. Set stop losses to minimize risk, and will sell at 10% or end of day for a quick profit.

This stuff is fun. :)

This speculating on BTC mining stock is a bit risky, but I feel good about it. Especially with stop loss, at most I will be forcibly exited at a very small loss. Already though I'm almost $100 up in those for the day. At the end of the day I am going to sell them, take the profits and reinvest them in some stuff I plan to hold for years. And if I see BTC spiking again I'll probably sell some ETF positions to temporarily do the same and then reinvest. I don't know how to read the stock market too well yet, but I have years of reading the BTC market, and these stocks follow it so closely, it's basically like investing in BTC, except it's stocks.

EDIT: $125 up. :)

That's pretty cool, I didn't even know you could buy stock on BTC mining. I'm pretty mad at myself for not getting more exposure to ETH over the past month. I knew it was going to go up and I've just been too lazy to exchange.

yeah man, watching your money grow is fun, for sure, and strategizing. I dunno, it just occurred to me that no one gets wealthy without investing, or at least, most people don't. My dad became quite wealthy, but he invested through the 80s, 90s, and on, it didn't just happen. I've got disposable income now, letting it sit in a savings account accumulating a tenth of a percentage point of interest per year is the second worst thing I could do (blowing it would be worse, obviously).

yeah it's exciting. I got into crypto in 2017, too. But kinda fucked myself over there, I just didn't know anything and got in around the peak.

what I always wonder, where does the value come from when investing into stock? since the investor didn't create value by work, nor the companies actual profits going into how much their stock is worth, since stock value of companies can rise even if they actually loose money. it seems to me that stock trade as a whole creates money without actual value behind it, so it only drives inflation by inflating money supply.

can you enlighten me, xork? :D

Good question. It's based on investor sentiment, more than anything, but also based on the value of the company. For example, Amazon is the largest corporation in the world, and its stock is the most valuable in the world. But if everyone in the world decided to sell all amazon stock, the stock wouldn't be worth anything. So I guess it's primarily based on sentiment. The reason companies go public is to raise capital.

I'm not exactly an expert. :)
