^Let us know what you buy and where - Ill chuck some bucks into the fire too fully expecting them to be worthless......but you never know!
When I get if figured out I will post the process on here.
Sites, which banks are allowing deposit direct into a crypto account etc.
And yes throw it away expecting nothing is the best plan.
I'm going to buy a cheap crypto currency within the next week, (not a huge amount).
Feel lost on how to go about it but our super geek IT girl is going to show me the way, her and her posse are all over this stuff.
Just don't wanna look back like I did with the dot com stocks and say shit, should have thrown some money in.
It's all so cheap right now, buying now is the best time. If its fails, oh well.

Think Im going to ski Whistler this thursday and friday. The rest of of my ski dollars will go to the kootenays where having 10 people in the liftline is a busy day.
Yes the lack of lift lines what skiing is all about. I find the Whistler zoo way too stressful for just a few in bounds fresh pow turns, like some giant race.
Seen pics of huge lines on weekends, weekdays too on the big dumps. No 5 day edge cards next year. Full FMITGA next year to everyone local who built the place up.
The Local Mayor should be ashamed of herself. They wanna price everyone out so it becomes another Aspen. Vail resort puppets.
What's crazy is the crowds with the cost of going there. One would think it would thin out.
If you are going to fly then shuttle stay on hill the easiest would be, Sunpeaks, Big White, and Apex being closest to airports.
Dunno about flying direct to Revy, don't think that is happening just yet, have to fly into Kelowna and shuttle there?
The further away from large populations, the lighter the crowds during the week.
Revy is my fave.
Stay at the Revelstoke lodge, it's a decent motel in town about 100 a night which is good for peak season skiing if ya wanna go budget accom.
Kicking Horse is good too, Whitewater also good. Always depends on Snow conditions.
Bump old thread.
Hollyburn was good on Saturday. Some holes at the very bottom but should all be filled in by weeks end.
Traffic going up at 830 was bumper to bumper, didn't see that last season until well after 9am. I guess that's the new norm now.
Been going on for years.
When I lived up there 2004-5 on the May long weekend some douche gangster shot a round at the door at Tommy's because the bouncers wouldn't let he and his gangster friends in. Apparently flashed a gun so the bouncers brought everyone in and locked the door. Everyone knew to avoid the village that weekend, word was it was going to be bad, it was, what a shit show.
Also the bar owners got together and had a meeting about who to let in and who to keep out of the bars that summer. I know this because one of my roommates was bar manager at Garfs.
In my experience of Whistler it seems to have a rep and a place to party instead of ski. Was in LA last summer and met these guys with stacks of cash work for Disney who go to Whistler every year for 2 weeks. I said why not go somewhere where there is less crowds or go cat/helii skiing for the money they were throwing down?
Theses guys said they could care less about the skiing, it was about the nightlife and the party.

Dummies around the world are panicking as their get rich quick scheme is falling apart.
This whole thing looks like it was fixed. Skyrocketed thru the roof now it's being shorted.
If this starts to affect the ultra rich I have a feeling it will come to a grinding halt quick with regulations, although they are the ones who are going to prosper big time. Leaving those who stretched themselves to get in recently to drive the price up may be getting screwed. We will see.....
