None of the Dokis would approve the waifu war.

None of the Dokis would approve the waifu war.

Guys, the whole “____ is best Doki” needs to end. None of our beloved Dokis would want this.

Your defending that Monika is best is taking away from spending time with Monika. She wouldn’t want that.

Sayori wouldn’t want anyone to fight. Especially about her.

All the drama disrupts Natsuki’s manga reading. She wouldn’t like all the drama.

Yuri would feel helplessly guilty that she did something wrong to cause everyone to argue.

It’s time to stop the bantering. This subreddit is more than a bickering ground. Stop for their sake, okay?

It's all for fun and it keeps the community interesting, I hope nobody takes this to heart or is offended by it personally. That's the last thing any of us want to do, they're all good-hearted people.

Indeed it's why i'm firmly in the "all dokis are best dokis i just love monika the most" category.

It’s true, but a joke is only funny so many times. At this point, it has just reduced to squabbling.

I’m sure that an occasional call back or reference would be humorous, but it’s just so frequent it has lost appeal.

Like any joke on this sub they all die at their own pace, whether it was the thicc thighs or the constant amalgamations of Dokis, they all slowed down at one point or another. Honestly, it's been slowing down already, I know it can get annoying but just remember other people are having fun with it still.

Can someone please explain how any of these currencies are viable as actual tender?

Can someone please explain how any of these currencies are viable as actual tender?

I'm an occasional lurker here, and have dabbled in crypto a bit. Got plenty lucky with Rai and IOTA when they surged and got off the train now and just watching.

Anyway, the one thing i am still to understand is how any of these cryptocurrencies in their current state are viable at all? Now before you downvote me hear out my whole question...

So, people on these forums shit on traditional currencies saying their inflationary? Their usesless, people who put their money in dollars are stupid, etc... But that raises 3 questions about crypto's viability itself.

1) How ever could cryptocurrency survive as the opposite? A deflationary currency is one no one will want to spend? I mean if it's going to be worth 10% more next year, who the fuck would spend it... I mean hell, RaiBlocks can be as efficent as anything, but if you can't say with confidence what it will be worth, then who'd use it as currency.

2) That's on the premise that you can keep it deflationary, but I find this bs. Say we get to a point when this surge stops. Anyone with a basic grasp on currency and inflation knows that inflation doesn't happen solely due to "THE US BANKS PRINTING MONEY" as many here claim. The truely greatest cause of inflation is infact Market Power. Bands and unions like OPEC, or SuperMarkets have the power to raise their prices from time to time, as there is no sustained competition. This causes people to buy for more, and reduces currency value. Or, on the flip side, demand. Do you know why a Supreme shirt which has nothing of significant value over other shirts is so expensive? Demand, and it is the other part of creating inflation. When many parties are interested in an item, it drives price, and devalues currency. How would crypto battle this sort of inflation?

3) Are these currencies going to be pegged or something at some point? Sure not to a traditional currency, like Tether which would make it pointless, but to something else like iron or something, idk. Surely there's some plan to controlling it's volatility, but from google I can't find any such thing? Right now in a transaction there's always going to be one side in a transaction which loses, be it the seller or the buyer.

Don't get me wrong, I think blockchain and related technologies have applications, but I feel like this cryptobubble is on the back of a technology which in terms of currency is not very well applicable (in it's current form). Please do answer my 3 questions, as I'm looking for an answer to how this is planned to be implemented.

Thanks for your input in advance.

As someone who has studied economics and currently works in market infrastructure, I have asked this question many times and never received a satisfactory answer

People won't spend something that rises faster than the rate of inflation, (they will hoard it) Business, companies and industry will never use a currency that is overly volatile Governments will never adopt something that is at the whim of traders, cartels, rogue nations, market manipulators and can't be controlled in times of high inflation or economic crashes

For example Bitcoin by cap is currently approx the 30th largest currency in the world, yet it is highly volatile, subject to market whims, has dipped over 25% several times this year - that would tear any functioning economy to pieces

Currently most coins are unsuitable as any form of national tender

However I think most of this stems from the unfortunate use of the phrase "crypto-currency" and a lack of basic economic understanding on behalf of many users

They are more like assets or shares and operate as such

Blockchain and the tech pioneered by coins will empower our cash and digital payments systems, streamlining them and many of the coins themselves represent the markets speculative value of the companies behind the coins (e.g. like Neo shares or Vechain)

I don't think of cryptos as replacing fiat, think of them more as complimenting the current system, streamlining it and drastically changing the internal systems - from smart contracts to multi-currency/coin phone software, as well as ushering in a new era of blockchain and DL tech in almost every part of our lives

I'm a little drunk and wanted to prove a fulfilling response to your question later, but caaaant wait.

I was with a friend the other day, who is of course into crypto, and he owed me money for a beer, while he was scrambling for his cash I told him to just send me that amount in Litecoin and we'd be good! So on his (Litecoin)wallet he just sent me the $5 he owed me and we called it even, this worked because I obviously value holding the coin despite it's volatility, but it's just a peek into how as long as one views crypto as valuable, it will be.

So wouldn't I be better off if I paid by normal credit card and just kept all of my crypto?

That's what I'm saying in Q1 though, if it were to retain it's deflationary nature, it would be sort of counterintuitive and a loss to use it to buy something (unless the return on the bought item was greater obviously).

Isn't your friend losing money essentially in such a case?

I don't doubt it's ability to have value to people, but on your point about holding despite volatility, for a business, it would be risky holding your liquid assets in something which may go up or down sporadically, unless they instantly convert to traditional which brings us back to square 1.

He is not a pedophile, this is fake news. Please watch his response video.

Love your username while trying to say Shane is a pedophile.

And it wasn't "recently", it was a video like 4 years ago that he made that joke.

MegaThread: Press conference of four senior Supreme Court Judges.

MegaThread: Press conference of four senior Supreme Court Judges.An unprecedented event occurred today in the history of India. Four senior SC judges came out against the institution in a PC. Out of all links this seems to be more comprehensive. Let's have a mega discussion on this.

EDIT: Below is the full text of the letter ....

It is with great anguish and concern that we have thought it proper to address this letter to you so as to highlight certain judicial orders passed by this court which has adversely affected the overall functioning of the justice delivery system and the independence of the high courts besides impacting the administrative functioning of the office of the Honourable the Chief Justice of India.

From the date of establishment of the three chartered High Courts of Calcutta, Bombay and Madras, certain traditions and conventions in the judicial administration have been well established. The traditions were embraced by this court which came into existence almost a century after the above mentioned chartered High Courts. These traditions have their roots in the angle saxon jurisprudence and practice.

One of the well settled princples is that the Chief Justice is the master of the roster with a privilidege to detemine the roster, neccessity in multi numbered for an orderly transaction of business and approriate arragements with resepct to matters with which member/bench of this court (as the case may be) is required to deal with which case or class of recongnising the privilidege of the chief justice to form the roster and assign cases to difference members/benches of teh court is a convention devised for a disciplined and efficient transaction of business of the court but not a recongnition of nay superior auhority, legal or factual of the chief justice over his colleagues. It is too well settled in the jurisprudence of this country that the chief justice is only the first amongst the equals — nothing more or nothing less. In the matter of the determination of the roster there are well-settled and time honoured conventions guiding the chief justice, be the convention dealing with the strength of the bench which is required to deal with a
particular case or the composition thereof.

A necessary corollary to the above-mentioned principle is the members of any multi-numbered judicial body including this Court would not arrogate to themselves the authority to deal with and pronounce upon matters which ought to be heard by appropriate benches, both composition wise and strength wise with due regard to the roster fixed.

Any departure from the above two rules would not only lead to unpleasant and undesirable consequences of creating doubt in the body politic about the integrity of the institution. Not to talk about the chaos that would result from such departure.

We are sorry to say that off late the twin rules mentioned above have not been strictly adhered to. There have been instances where case having far-reaching consequences for the Nation and the institution had been assigned by the Chief Justices of this Court selectively to the benches “of their preference” without any rationale basis for such assignment. This must be guarded against at all costs. We are not mentioning details only to avoid embarrassing the institution but note that such departures have already damaged the image this institution to some extent.

In the above context, we deem it proper to address you presently with regard to the Order dated October 27, 2017 in R.P. Luthra vs Union of India to the effect that there should be no further delay in finalizing the Memorandum of Procedure in the larger public interest. When the Memorandum of Procedure was the subject matter of a decision of a Constitution Bench of this Court in Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record Association and Anr. vs Union of India [(2016) 5 SCC 1] it is difficult to understand as to how any other Bench could have dealt with the matter.

The above apart, subsequent to the decision of the Constitution Bench, detailed discussions were held by the Collegium of five judges (including yourself) and the Memorandum of Procedure was finalized and sent by the then Hon’ble the Chief justice of India to the government of India in March 2017. The Government of India has not responded to the communication and in view of this silence, it must be taken that the Memorandum of Procedure as finalized by the Collegium has been accepted by the Government of India on the basis of the order of this Court in Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record-Association (Supra). There was, therefore, no occasion for the Bench to make any observation with regard to the finalization of the Memorandum of Procedure or that that issue cannot linger on for an indefinite period.

On 4th July, 2017, a Bench of seven Judges of this Court decided InRe, Hon’ble Shre Justice C.S. Karnan (2017) 1SCC 1]. In that decision (refer to in R.P.Luthra), two of us observed that there is a need to revisit the process of appointment of judges and to set up a mechanism for corrective measures other than impeachment. No observation was made by any of the seven learned judges with regard to the Memorandum of Procedure.

Any issue with regard to the Memorandum of Procedure should be discussed in the Chief Justices’ Conference and by the Full Court. Such a matter of grave importance, if a all required t be taken on the judicial side, should be dealt with by none other than a Constitution Bench.

The above development must be viewed with serious concern. The Hon’ble Chief Justice of India is duty bound to rectify the situation and take appropriate remedial measures after a full discussion with the other members of the Collegium and at a later state, if required, with other Hon’ble Judges of this Court.

Once the issue arising from the order dated 27th October, 2017 in R.P.Luthra vs. Union of India, mentioned above, is adequately addressed by you and if it becomes so necessary, we will apprise you specifically of the other judicial orders passed by this Court which would require to be similarly dealt with.

With kind regards

My very first emotion reading the news was.. hope! Hope that there're people who are willing to take a stand for democracy. I've railed against CJI here. But I knew that in our democratic institution, CJI appointment is for life (until retirement). So I was just resigned to gnash my teeth and scream into randian void when things would get too much. Never did I even think that other judges would be dissatisfied with him! Rebel, sir, it gives me hope! ("Rebellions are built on hope" :D)

It seems that Amit Shah and CJI reached agreement to protect each others back on Justice loya's death and Medical college bribe case.

It is disgusting to hear soli sorabjee and other former SC judges say that this press conference by the 4 judges is what will damage the judiciary.

What about the asshole CJI who is corrupt to his core?!?

This is probably the greatest day for the judiciary, India and Democracy.

EDIT: If anyone wants to know what the bhakts think of this issue, please see Times Now. Rahul Shivshankar and Navika Kumar are earning their money. They are already talking about how this is a congress ploy.

All these stupid journalists/anchors saying this will destroy common mans faith in judiciary when in fact it is the opposite.

They have already started asking for their impeachment! And media propagandists have started coming out with their own obscure analysis like "why only 4 judges came out, why not all 20?" Like, can you believe how hard it is to not toe the line and go against everyone, especially if the case is against somebody like Amit Shah?? That take guts! Fucking imbeciles.

Not unexpected. This is why it wasn't great to vote for her - they were going to make sure she stayed bad. One of the others might have gotten a real buff. Then again, maybe it was always gonna be a joke buff.
