***TRANSCRIPT: The Corbett Report 2/22/2019 "The Crisis of Science"***
In 2015 a study from the Institute of Diet and Health with some surprising results launched a slew of click bait articles with explosive headlines:
“Chocolate accelerates weight loss” insisted one such headline.
“Scientists say eating chocolate can help you lose weight” declared another.
“Lose 10% More Weight By Eating A Chocolate Bar Every Day…No Joke!” promised yet another.
There was just one problem: This was a joke.
The head researcher of the study, “Johannes Bohannon,” took to io9 in May of that year to reveal that his name was actually John Bohannon, the “Institute of Diet and Health” was in fact nothing more than a website, and the study showing the magical weight loss effects of chocolate consumption was bogus. The hoax was the brainchild of a German television reporter who wanted to “demonstrate just how easy it is to turn bad science into the big headlines behind diet fads.”
Oh man I'm looking at this 65000 character limit and I'm getting major blank page phobia. Should we talk about China? How they're backing Maduro and Trump is backing Juan Guaido. Muslim congress member saying Trump is backing a "far right coup"(meaning anything right of Mao). Fox freaking out about it.... uhhhhhh wasn't the USA a coup? We're supposed *like* when nations tell their internationally allingned dictators where they can shove it.

Figured out the strategy: https://cash.coin.dance/blocks/hashrate SV is deliberately staying just behind ABC while dedicating as much hash as possible to a re-org. When ABC drops it frees SV hash to tighten the noose.
SV probably has a blank ABC chain running in secret down at a nominal difficulty. If the ABC chain lets up on their hashpower long enough for SV to pump their secret chain with 51%+ PoW, it'll cancel every transaction
I teach elementary school English in Tokyo, 90% of what we do is play games. Cheating to get ahead early and then trying to demoralize your opponent by bragging is something 5th graders do. 6th graders are more mature
Lol @ all the people who have no clue how mining works so they can't game out what's going to happen when Bitcoin.com switches their miners back to BTC and it adjusts difficulty. I bet they satoshi's shotgun BTC.
