capacity is supposedly 43k for football, which actually makes it smaller than the stadium for either of the teams in the game, though a bit higher than the average attendance for ucf and quite a bit lower than the average nc state attendance.

there are something like 35 bowl games played in the last weeks of december. the one that bitcoin is sponsoring is literally ranked 35th out of those 35. two schools no one cares about who managed to wheeze to a .500 record. theres a 50/50 chance the bowl will simply be canceled next year, or if it survives, the year after that.

the oakland coliseum is a multi-use stadium that hosts both baseball and football (meaning it sucks for both). it's not at all the same as converting a baseball park - the smalled in mlb, at that - into a football field.

No, they're still smart/self-aware enough to realize they should just have someone else handle their money for them.

bitpay bought 2 years of sponsorship, i doubt that it will be cancelled next year.


also:


with tim draper saying he won 2000, that'd explain all 50k us marshal auctioned bitcoins for this batch, 94k still in us marshal control. gray thread says that the bitcointrust was a group you could just buy into and they'd distribute winnings based on your share of the funds.

i thought when they announced it somebody said there was one bowl with less viewership?

as i recall naming rights for this thing were only like 100k or something, YOSPOS could dig deep and have the cosby bowl next year

...that might have been a better idea in a previous year, though

i said that and it was a question, i remember something like that but don't remember if that's what the bitcointrust was or if it was something else

pascal's wager is only valid if you're on the fence for one and exactly one religion (with a similar afterlife to Christianity), if you don't think there's a reasonable chance the religion is true just ignore it

but if you're seriously like 50/50 it's a pretty logically valid proposition, there's just kinda some hidden parameters

and even though it has some hidden assumptions it's a really important part of the development of logical proof as a thing people do

also in my head I always pretend he's named "Blaze" Pascal because that sounds like he's the bully from 1950s who wears a leather jacket and rides a motorcycle

the basic problem with Pascal's wager is that man thinks of himself so mightily that even his own god will succumb to this one simple trick invented by a philosopher, gods hate him!
