I think that is his point as well. It certainly makes sense intuitively, but I don't really know.

Milo Yiannopoulos has said that he doesn't really believe in female homosexuality, while being a male homosexual himself. Perhaps he has a point.

Re: ESOC Crypto Corner

Yes they are just leverage, but the thing with multipliers is that they stack multiplicatively. The nominal value of the certificates are updated once a day, which means that if the asset rises in value over the span of several days you profit more than if it had risen the same amount in one day - a...

Re: ESOC Crypto Corner

No they aren't ETFs. They are basically one layer above futures contracts. What happens when you buy this certificate for $100 from the bank is that the bank itself buys Bitcoins for $100 on your behalf (or perhaps a futures contract on Bitcoins for $100) and when you decide to cash in the certifica...

Re: The government, taxation, and banking

I did cover that at the beginning of the post: In a healthy society the government would fund its activities (such as providing healthcare) through the printing of new money, and if not enough, through taxation as well. Of course, the government should spend the money in the interest of the people a...

What is your proposed answer for the "why" here?
That is included in the vast discussion of USA's history that is both outside the scope of this thread and my current free time, but the short answer should be rather clear from my post.

Re: ESOC Crypto Corner

Actually, if I wanted to be involved in crypto for a long I would get actual coins, but I have no idea how long I will be involved in this. I'm not really a great believer in cryptocurrency - at least not yet - so I'm not committing.

Re: ESOC Crypto Corner

Yes, there is no benefit other than not having to go through the hassle of getting those initial Bitcoins (which you'd have to pay more than a 2.5% fee for probably) and setting up your wallet, and perhaps you trust the bank a bit more than Poloniex. There might be an issue with tax too if you buy B...

Re: ESOC Crypto Corner

It's as easy as buying stocks. You get them in your normal bank account, and buy and sell with the click of a button. There's no need for the hassle. Normally you don't invest in the long-term with certificates - absolutely not if they have a multiplier - but the fee is so low compared to the Bitcoi...

Re: ESOC Crypto Corner

I am not planning to buy actual Bitcoins, but rather buying exchange-traded certificates on the normal exchange. The fee is 2.5% per year so it is very negligible, and since it doesn't involve any multiplier it should be just fine.

But thanks for the information.

Re: I want to effortlessly learn a new language.

Yes. Having a mentor is of tremendous value. When it comes to French I have guidance, so I know precisely what I'm suppose to do. I'm not sure how hard it is otherwise. Perhaps it is easier than it seems.

Re: ESOC Crypto Corner

Yeah I'm probably going to invest in BTC on Monday. It is on an all-time high again despite a damn hard-fork inflating the amount of coins by 10%. If it fucking THRIVES during a hard-fork attack it seems very wasteful to not join the imminent rise to the stars.

Re: I want to effortlessly learn a new language.

Well, the ideal situation would be to find someone who speaks neither English nor Greek very well, to force you to communicate with each other in German. Other than that I think reading actual books (loudly so that you practice pronunciation as well) is key, but it is rather effortful. Less effortfu...

Re: I want to effortlessly learn a new language.

I'm in the same situation with French and Spanish, @BrookG. I think the way to go is to read and watch stuff in the language with Google Translate ready in another tab, and revisit the grammar every now and then. I'll probably do that as well soon enough.

You said this as if melee-DPS being much higher is some kind of additional advantage not part of the counter-system where only multipliers matter.

So you don't regard the fact that melee-DPS is generally higher in the game as a part of the counter system?

@Garja Are you saying that a troop of hussars takes longer to kill a troop of skirmishers than the time the same troop of skirmishers takes to kill a troop of dragoons, all troops costing X villager-seconds?

In the vast majority of cases, titles aren't complete non-question sentences without exclamation marks. In the rare case that they are I think a period is appropriate. N'est-ce pas ?

Re: skirm / goon micro

I think that musk/huss vs skirm/goon completely depends on the size of the armies and the surroundings. Small armies favors skirm/goon because by the time the musk/huss gets in range a large share of the army is already dead. Obstacle-free environment also favors the skirm/goon composition as it obv...
