On the morning of May 19, 1536, Henry VIII’s fallen queen ascended the scaffold, delivered a conventional speech praising the king as a “gentle and sovereign lord” and knelt to receive the death blow. The executioner struck Anne’s head off with a single swing of his sword. She even tipped the executioner, before the hack to show her gratitude for his diligence. What a classy woman.

Will Tesla change the landscape of Bitcoin mining through the developing technologies of Tesla and other Elon industries? Or is this an Elon Musk SNL skits.

Tesla announced that customers can now order their flagship Model S with a Bitcoin mining option. Cars equipped with the mining option will be loaded with an upgradeable Bitmain chipset capable of over 150 TH/s. Furthermore, the Bitcoin mining models will use their new ultra-efficient Lithium-Iridium batteries Elon says that the new super batteries will not only give the Model S F1-level performance, but will reduce the energy footprint of crypto mining. A win-win-win as Elon stated.

Obviously, the above is a parody on Tesla but amidst his backtracking of Tesla accepting Bitcoin, Elon is known for making bizarre announcements…

The Roman army was the largest and meanest fighting force in the ancient world. They were well trained, equipped and organized. It conquered a vast empire that stretched from Britain all the way to the Middle East. The army was very advanced for its time. When the Romans invaded Britain, their army was so good that it took on armies 10 times its size and won! …


Crypto naysayers are still around as are the Flat Earthers. But like Elvis sightings, they are quickly dwindling as corporations, financiers, tradition finance institutions, and nation states are all jumping in. While the battle is over there is still a lot going on.

Cassie tossed a double — a pair of 4’s which meant she finally gets out of jail which was a place she felt much safer than being outside. She reluctantly counted the 8 spaces from jail but she knew it wasn’t going to be good. Tennessee Avenue. “How much?” she asked.

Gerald replied: $950. Gerald owned all the railroads, all the utilities, all the properties, and all the hotels. He could own the Jail too if it was up for sale.
