Why not both?
I saw an interview with a woman who used astrology to make financial predictions
I saw a whole sub…
do u mean r/Wallstreetbets ?
Bold of you to assume they use anything as defined as astrology to do anything there.
We used a dog once.
People have also bet on the decisions made by an octopus.
So far he ain't been wrong.
Any relation to Paul the Octopus?
That'd be him!
Dog, octopus, or astrology. Your still gonna do better than if you take the advice from jim Cramer
What did the octopus say I should invest in?
I hope the answer is stocks.
I think there's something about the moon...
pfhfhfhfHehehehe fair xD
They tend to work mostly with crayons.
Green ones preferably
Fuck you, purple-crayons are the best.
Though green ones taste pretty good.
Nah green ones require too much BBQ sauce, I prefer yellow ones
we all agree tho pink ones taste like shit right
Edit: I am having way too much fun in this entire thread lmfao
But red ones! Mmm! Perfectly salty, crunchy, and waxy!
But the brown ones tho, mate they are flavored like bbq sauce!
Crayons taste like purple.
If you use astrology for financial advice, there’s a high chance you will make a bad choice. If you use NFT bros for financial advice, there’s a 100% chance you will make a bad choice.
So you're telling me there's a chance to make money?
big brain time
How many hedgefunds did she beat?
Nancy Reagan had an astrologer on call at all times and helped old Ronald make decisions based off of the star signs etc.
The Reagan's had one during their administration too!
Think I could live with an idiot better than living with an idiot with no money cause they bought an image
You underestimate how much shitty dyed quartz you can sell to an idiot
My SIL has a bottle with a crystal in it for 'bad vibes' $50 for it
I genuinely think if those people believe the product will do as advertised, they will find that it does to some extent. A mix of placebo and self-fulfilling prophecy (I think that's the right term).
Yeah I just like to razz her. It's not really hurting anyone, it's just silly to me. I'm sure the placebo effect works wonders for them too, and hey, whatever floats your hippie boat
Personally I don't give a shit about what people do, but oh god do I just love clowning them.
I don’t think the placebo effect is that powerful tbh. “Bad vibes” are a fact a life, I don’t think they’ll just go away that easily.
Say 1 bottle for removing bad vibes, 50$ and 1 bottle for adding good vibes, 50$. Say you sell 10 of each per month. That's 1000$ [(50×10)]×2. Basically easy money and you are sure to get, cuz you manipulate people's emotions and feelings, so they give out money like it's air
This is why I collect rocks instead, they're free and they're everywhere. Don't believe in astrology though, just find rocks and stuff interesting.
Consider attributing magic abilities to these rocks to sell to idiots.
Lol, well my mom and I *did* just open an Etsy shop....
Oh yeah. It’s all coming together.
It’s not rocks, it’s minerals ffs get it right.
If you wanna sell it to idiots it's *crystals*.
God DAMNIT Marie!
same reason why I collect ducks
what if he's the one *selling*
The thing is, people who sell those usually dont believe in it
believe in what
Nft investing being a good financial decision
They don't need to. Is this your first time hearing about a scam to make money?
How do you know that? Just guessing?I know a few people who manage to make a lot of money selling nfts and they all definitely believe in the value of their ugly digital gorillas
A link to an image
I'm imagining this as a funny mortal combat ending move, to soften the blow
But instead of ending it there you smash the little fucker’s head in
I’ll take astrology over a dumbass son that gets scammed every week
At least you get actual rocks and crystals. An nft son only brings you a link to a jpeg.
You may say it's a scam, but that's just because you don't understand the blockchain. The blockchain is life. The blockchain is God. Everything the blockchain touches turns to gold. I put my dick on the blockchain. Do you know what happened? It turned into fucking gold. A girl I was with bit my gold dick and that just dented this bitch. I ripped it off and jammed it into my own ass. Know what happened? I came all over the place, that's what happened. Was the cum up my ass where my gold blockchain dick was? Was it all over my body, spurting out from where my dick used to be? I don't know. All I know is that it was fucking everywhere. I don't even know how I did it without a dick, but have you ever had your own gold blockchain dick up your ass? No. Get educated
Astrology daughter, but only because im not into guys
Motherfucker if you were in any other subreddit I would downvote. Take your karma and get the fuck out.
Astrology costs less, so that.
Astrology is just a gateway into $300 crystals
At least crystals can look pretty.
Then I will use this fascination to get her interested in astronomy and geology.
Lmao, thats not how that works.
People aren't fascinated by astrology because its rocks or space. They are fascinated by astrology because it feeds them simple bullshit explanations to things they don't understand.
Read the book, The Demon Haunted World by Carl Sagan, it goes into how people are fascinated by interesting bullshit rather than difficult to understand truths.
> people are fascinated by interesting bullshit rather than difficult to understand truths.
explains my reddit time tbf
Look man I'm just trying to make the best of a tough situation in a hypothetical
Plus astrology girls are always dtf
That would be your daughter lmao
I’m just going out to pick up some milk, I’ll be back soon!
I need some cigarettes, I'll come too!
Astrology daughter, 100%. It's silly to me, but at least it's not harming anybody. Meanwhile nfts do so much bad stuff to the environment and artists.
Wait until you see folks justifying their toxic behaviour with astrology. Then you'll realise that they can harm other people just as much
Yeah but then can apply to every single subset of people. There are atheists who justify them acting like dicks by their whole "I'm so much smarter cuz I don't believe in God," bullshit, christians who justify them acting like dicks with their "I'm so much better cuz I believe in God," shit, etc. Applies to every single group of people.
And people who convert to atheism are like:
"I so much smarter cuz used to think god exists, but then I realized that humanity is fucked and there's no point anymore"
That's a nihilist not an atheist lol
Does it even matter? Does anything matter?
And then there are atheists who convert and that's a whole nother thing.
What a Scorpio thing to say
My son bought am NFT that was a single color for 60 bucks
I was with you until the last bit… how do NFTs affect the environment? Actually how do they affect artist too? Just uninformed about the whole thing
Cryptocurrency transactions take absolutely insane amounts of energy to do; a single transaction uses more energy than most American households use in a month *or two*.
And a lot of artists have their art stolen and sold as NFTs. So in addition to having other people profit of their work, the artists might have their reputation damaged.
Agree with your points, but your energy consumption statement is just flat wrong.
Most sources I've been able to find state that bitcoin uses around 1k to 2.5k kWh per transaction and that most American households use around 0.9k a month.
This is flawed logic because you do not just send as many transactions through as you want. If infinite transactions could go onto the blockchain the power consumed per transaction would be tiny. It uses so much power no matter if a transaction goes through or not. The power is being burned to keep the network secure, not to record a transaction.
I know bitcoin and other crypto currencies use enormous amounts of power to produce (computers need power, need a lot of computers) so maybe nfts are similar? Idk maybe not
NFTs are in the Ethereum blockchain. They currently are in a “Proof of Work” consensus when it comes to validation. This model is the same as bitcoin’s and the miners involved consume a lot of power. Miners are necessary because they collectively validate the network. They’re rewarded in eth tokens for this work. The eth network consumes as much power as the Netherlands annually.
However they will soon be transitioning to a “Proof of Stake” consensus which will be a model where the validators have to stake their tokens and an algorithm will select who will validate the network and they’ll be awarded. This will eliminate the power consumption to almost insignificant amounts.
Damn i hope they get the power consumption in control, thank you for your knowledgeable reply!
Basically, much like crpytocurrency, nfts absorb a ton of power and money, like way more than you'd think a monkey picture could use up. Plus you use crypto usually to buy them, so it's like double the environmental damage. From an art side, nfts are advertised as art but really work more like business and stock, so that plus how nfts usually make a ton of money means the art community is being overtaken by some ugly monkey pictures, when they aren't even "art". If that makes sense.
Or people stealing images from artists that they've posted online and selling them as an NFT. It's a huge problem.
Most NFT’s in the future will be built on layer 2, specifically Loopring (LRC) who’s carbon neutral. Also, most NFT’s won’t be JPG’s that you can screenshot. NFT technology (with the exception of JPG’s) will alleviate digital theft, not enable it.
Thank you for this, some really uneducated people in this thread just parroting what other people have told them about NFTs.
Astrology daughter any day.
NFT son will be broke forever
Astrology daughter will be single forever.
Either way they'll live with me until the end
most based answer in this whole thread
Easily astrology daughter. Their decisions likely will have less impact on their and my living situation, I can stand being called a dick because I'm a Scorpio or something, but I don't think I can say the same for someone who's gullible enough to buy nfts.
I might end up getting some calls from a Nigerian prince, too..
Fucking murder suicide
astrology daughter but the fun kind
I too, choose this guy's fun astrology daughter
If I get an astrology daughter I can teach her not to use it as an excuse to be an asshole. I’ll take Astrology daughter
So, you have chosen death...
So you have chosen tiktoker
Would the daughter be a crystal type or a "I'm an Aquafina, I'm such a clutz" type?
NFT son because at least they have a chance of making some money
Or have a crippling gambling addiction
My money is on him
he's more likely to be losing money than making money tbh
no no, people who are into nft don't make money, the ones who make money are the ones who pretend to be into nft too scam those who do
you gon sell him?
This is why I’m pro abortion
"You mean pro choice?"
"No, PRO ABORTION"
Well at least NFT so has a very small chance to get rich and learnt how to invest. Having an astrology daughter is like knowing she is being scammed for her whole life.
Edit: a lot of ppl for some reason thought I said buying NFT is smart. No, it isn't, selling is. Selling NFT is the capitalisation of human stupidity.
Its funny how you say NFT and Scam in the same comment without seeing the irony
NFT is a scam cos ppl for some reason buy them and the seller makes bucks.
what you just described is literally just capitalism lmao
Same with a car warranty
Astrology daughter is only going to break up with her high school boyfriend over their signs not lining up. NFT son dumps his student loans into an NFT anime.
Your nft son is going to lose everything you have on ugly monkeys, my astrology daughter will just be a pain in the ass
>my astrology daughter will just be a pain in the ass
only if you get her a strapon
If you’re buying NFTs, you’re not getting rich.
Daughter cause it's something I don't know much of and maybe I'm into it lol
The smartest Saiki K fan
NTF son, at least he can scam people to buy shitty JPG's
Will it depends on what kind of NFT son, does to son make and sell NFTs or does he buy and trade them?
I hate nfts and crypto (and capitalism as a whole, for that matter) like the plague, but assuming both are equally hard believers in the respective nonsense, I'd still go for the nft son without hesitation.
A hard belief in astrology says so much worse about your rationality. The nft son is probably just greedy/selfish and immature, letting fantasies of getting rich cloud his thinking. This could change, although not guaranteed.
The astrology daughter might, for all I know, be an idiot for the rest of her life with literally nothing that could ever change her mind.
NFTs have the opportunity to make you money if you flip it and sell it to another idiot who pays way too much for it. Astrology is just BS.
I kind if feel like the neglect is what causes those things
If my son makes these "nft's" and sells them, then definitely the son
stars, constellations, and dreams will forever be more interesting than a picture of a monkey
NFT Son so I can at least brain wash 'em into thinking Pokémon Cards are cooler cause they fight
Give them both up for adoption
Get both of them then sell them for money.
Nft son because at least there is a chance that he can make a lot of money and it implies he is at least somewhat decent at making digital art
The "NFT son" label doesn't necessarily confirm he'll be an *artist.* He can be an NFT collector/reseller without making his own NFTs.
Also, either way, your son is either contributing to or buying into a scam.
Yeah, I did realize this after posting my comment
most people who make NFTs are not "artists" in any sense of the word that I would use
Sell them into slavery
Abortion or up for adoption
I prefer return to sender
Easy, nft son gonna make him create nfts and profit
time for the milk/cigarettes round.
NFT son because they may be a disappointment but hey free money
This really is tough…
Thats the right answer
Saiki Kusuo is based
Well for the nft son does he sell the NFT or does he buy the NFT? yeah, either way, he sucks but if he sells NFT then we'll get money because people do buy NFTs so we would be making a lot of cash, if he buys then I'll go with astrology daughter, I've known people that believed in astrology, and later stopped believing it but it got them into astronomy and are studying that now.
I'd have done a 5th trimester abortion.
Step-NFT, what are you doing?
‘This’ is my cock
Astrology girl because at least she’ll be popular. NFT son will be bullied to no end and not just by me like the daughter
It’s like they say it’s never to late to have an abortion
Either way I’m getting Head
How about an NFT that sells astrology girls.
Gets them both off the market at the same time. I'm gonna be a billionaire.
NFT son for sure, because he will only be insufferable if he succeeds at which point I can ask him for money
Astrology Daughter, astrology is stupid but isn’t as bad for the world per se.
Astrology daughter. I dont want a useless son taking my money to waste on NFTs. At least astrology daughter can get a stable job
Don’t need that type of negative energy in my life. Both of em dead weight gotta cut em loose.
astrology daughter ONLY IF she actually knows what it is and it’s purpose and significance
So only if she knows that it is a crock of shit that's amusing to joke about on the toilet or read in Chinese restaurant?
Better option: I'll take the rat (Stuart little)
