And I'm only saying this because I care.

There are a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market today that are just as tasty as the real thing.

Northwest Arkansas will pay you $10,000 in bitcoin to move there and help turn it into a crypto hub

“since 2020, so far 50 people have moved to the region”

dozens of people in such desperation that moving to Arkansas sounded promising

Northwest Arkansas has been on a tear trying to get tech people to move there. Several people I know have been getting targeted ads about the natural splendor of the area and how it is a great place to be in tech. It really baffled us, because honestly, why Northwest Arkansas? The fact that it's just the Waltons trying to have some local tech talent living near WalMart headquarters makes a lot of sense.

Also, some historian should collect all of these "technical analysis" graphs from the past and see how many actually held up to their predictions. (Also also, check that wonderful log scale on the y-axis.)

Northwest Arkansas has a decent startup scene fueled by people who left Walmart but don't want to leave the area as well.

I blame EA and Ubisoft, etc. for convincing people that a rotating stock of skins in video games are worth $20-50 for this current mess


except even a skin in a game has more utility than an NFT

in this case it's because according to their own napkin math, putting the book on the blockchain would cost $57k per page
