It seems that Economic uncertainty and currency instability may be they forces rocket propelling us into the Digital Currency Age much sooner than we expected.

China has been aggressively buying bitcoin during its times of economic instability.

Venezuela’s currency was collapsing,  and bitcoin price suddenly surged as a result.

Due to Trump’s election, the stock market is surging, but so is the price of bitcoin, so it seems there are equal parts optimist and pessimist investing in the American economy,

and we can’t really have any idea what that means, but it can never be a good sign when  large portion of the wealthy start securing their fortunes in a private and digital safe haven.

Oh and let us not forget about the Brexit, it seems the amount of Euros being transferred into bitcoin is surging as well.

My LEGO “Winter” Village.

I put this together last Christmas on O’ahu. The Xmas lights are actually a flashing led necklace, so they actually flash.

Cool DIY Project.


Lifehack: Transform a Starbucks paper bag into a fully functional wallet!

I think I am going to try to make one of these this weekend. It looks really cool. I will try to add a layer of aluminum foil to protect from RFID attacks.

and here is a link to a video of how to do it. My Mom used to do someting similar for book-covers, they are very durable. Love this.

worst game ever

This game was embarrasing.


All week I have been happy that I won my last Chess Game at the Mechanic’s Chess Institute Tuesday Night Marathon, but I was too busy until today to do a computer analysis of my game. I ran it today, um…and I sucked. Seriously, I should not have won, and the computer had me pegged to lose for 75% of the game, it was literally a game of blunders and counter-blunders.
