i like that they started trying to do it half-way decently with the distribution box and then just gave up and ran extension cords everywhere

the uk in general has a smug sense of superiority about wiring practices that are correctly seen as dangerous and thus illegal everywhere else

the best part is that the british pork patrol clearly raided the building while not having any actual proof that it was a weed growing facility and just got lucky that some buttcoiners were pirating electricity so they could claim the moral high ground

robinhood proves again and again that it's a clownshow broker and i don't know why anyone uses them when every real broker now offers free trades and low cost options contracts

this is the broker with the infamous "infinite money trick" that basically let people run up huge margin buying power by laundering robinhood's own money through their options desk

i think getting approved for things like margin and naked options trading is just a matter of pushing a button too, while the "old man" brokers want you to demonstrate that you actually have some idea of what you are doing first

no seriously if you send a ship through the piracy area you have to get “kidnap and ransom” insurance, basically if your crew gets jacked they negotiate with the pirates and pay them

nowadays you also get armed guards, so like three dudes with SKS rifles

it's been a thing for people traveling to parts of central/south america, africa and middle east for a long time. basically anywhere unstable, corrupt and/or with active guerilla groups who can make good money from kidnapping foreigners

love how that guy considered leaving a bunch of computers on and stealing electricity a business

bitcoin is condensed, modern capitalism: it senselessly destroys resources to fuel an imaginary number, the value of which is completely made up, and relies heavily on socializing losses while privatizing profits (stealing electricity to mine coins worth a fraction of the value)

robinhood is basically another synthetic crypto stock since crypto is the only thing they charge commission on. doge being the primary crypto is not surprising seeing as how most of their client base can't legally drink in the us
