Someone could sell a villa for truck loads of lemons, I suppose.

Actually a yummy ripe lemon is a thing to behold. You can put sugar on one and eat it.

It’s inevitable.

It’s the future.

The dollar is a lie and more and more know the truth all the time.

“Further, he sees the purchase as proof that bitcoin buyers will be increasingly willing to diversify their assets with other investment opportunities.”

Wouldn’t that be the same thing as saying that bitcoin owners are simply SELLING their bitcoins for real stuff?

“Such hostility!”

After reading all the garbage you and yours spew on here. Its like you’re living in an episode of the Flintstones. It’s 2014, come on over and reap the benefits of early adoption.

Lemons, Alf pogs , vaporwear, tulips hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Send Bitcoin and get some too!
If not, get over it! Although you will be kicking yourself! Another missed opportunity in a long line of them.

The benefits are to numerous to list here. I suggest you do some leg work and find out.
Remember, contempt prior to investigation will leave a man in everlasting ignorance.

“After reading all the garbage you and yours spew on here”

Me and mine hey? Oh I see! The hostility directly against me isn’t PERSPONAL! It’s just that I’m a personification of all the frustration that’s built up inside of you because there are people who post comments on your links that you don’t like. Or is it more that it really IS personal because you think I’m directing all of the other people who are posting things you don’t like since you attribute ownership of these people to me vis a vis “you and yours”?

BTW, try putting “[bitcoin caucus]” after the titles of your post and see if that cuts down on disagreeing comments.

I have no problem with honest disagreement.
Uniformed people should investigate a subject before they open their mouths and prove how stupid they are.

So, you didn’t answer the question.

Do you hold other assets besides dollars? Or are you dumping your dollars for real stuff?

Bali resorts need to be seen to be believed.
Lots of the uber-rich have shacks like this there.
Also a hideout of gay pedophiles.
