The Babylon Project

The Babylon Project (or Project Babylon) is born out of an idea of Great White Snark's, chiefly to amass a great amount of wealth (as does the Richest Man in Babylon, according to George Clason) in crypto (chiefly privacy coins). Just as the book dispenses financial advice, the project will redistribute crypto among those in dire need of it (particularly in places with totalitarian governments). Since The Snark already has three blogs on Pub0x, he has given me permission to set up this one as one of mine.

Once again, I have had the pleasure of reading the thoughts of my Iranian correspondent. Here's what he wrote tonight. (It gets pretty indignant and heated, in case you need a warning for emotive/inflammatory language.) As always, the words in quotes...

Why waste money? Doing so will only serve to keep you poor, no matter how much you make.

5 Jun 2023 5 minute read 7 comments Great White Snark

One of the many things that pisses me off immensely about being poor and struggling to get by without work is people who waste their money. Throwing away perfectly good and edible food is a particularly irritating habit in that category. I struggle t...
