Hello, I'm oocc (owl of covid conspericy). Everyone else is posting a bunch of jokes about vaccine conspiracies but not me, I actually think this all, and the thread environment has gotten rancid to the point this doesn't really even stick out anymore.

Do not bring that corruption into this thread.

421 is indeed less than 429, but you'll have to show your work to explain why that is bad. The "2038 problem" will either be something, or perhaps another nothingburger like Y2k. I don't know much about the global finance/currency software but I'm guessing there are some 32-bit surprises where we least expect.

Oh, it hosed up before it hit that limit? Well that's close enough, we have full confidence.

no one in north america makes anything. being a north american "businessman" means finding ways to overprice chinese goods and trick people into buying shite they don't need. this is the entire basis of the american economy, these online shops are only a small expression of it

Whenever some rando posts about having an online store that generates $1k/month of income I always assume it's something like this and then mostly I just get sad that I seem like the only person in the country notgetting rich off of either a dropship or crypto grift right now.
