A review of the responses from yesterday’s blog entry suggests that the “Each State’s Favorite Fast Food” map I posted was…well…grossly inaccurate. OR commissioned by the suspiciously popular Mod Pizza to drum up sales. So, I’d love to know what YOU consider your state’s favorite fast food. Here in Ontario, I think it’s the rather staid Tim Hortons. Coffee. Donuts. Run of the mill wraps. I would, of course, cast my vote for Toronto’s very own Burger’s Priest.
Thanks for the feedback to yesterday’s digital currency-related post. As most of you have pointed out, it does feel like a pyramid scheme in which the early buyers are the ones to profit. And the further research I did would seem to bear that out. The prices are incredibly volatile because the scale of transactions in these coins is highly manipulable. Turns out the actual volume of buying and selling is somewhat lower than the stated volume. How much somewhat lower? Well, in the case of bitcoin, it was 95%! The lionshare of these transactions are what’s referred to as wash trading which is designed to create artificial market activity.
Guess I’ll just stick to nice conservative investments I can actually understand. Like comic books.
Today’s film-related question…
What's a fantastic underappreciated horror movie?
