“Hope Putin and Trump are working behind the scenes on back channel communications”

You got that right my friend! The whole situation could go to shit very fast. I don’t think we’d like it much if Russia was killing US soldiers.

“Hope Putin and Trump are working behind the scenes on back channel communications.”

Amen to that – bypass the Deep State filters .
I believe there is mutual respect which could be very beneficial to peace prospects .

Sanity. Hope Putin and Trump are working behind the scenes on back channel communications. Crazy world.

Better day for pm’s other than the last hour usual smackdown. We’ll see.

Even Bit Coins Are Made In China

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 20:27 on February 12, 2018  

Taking advantage of the cheap and plentiful hydroelectric power that an army of computers require, bitcoin mining is spreading in remote parts of China’s Sichuan province. In dark and isolated warehouses, bitcoin mining machines hum along solving equations to produce the highly valued cryptocurrency.

In 2016, Chinese photographer Liu Xingzhe spent time in China’s bitcoin mines and with the miners themselves, who monitor the vast hallways of machines producing cryptocurrency for various clients. According to Liu, miners typically live in company dormitories for days at a time—not unlike the mining towns of yore—only occasionally traveling dozens of miles to the nearest town.

Although increased government oversight has caused Chinese bitcoin trading to falter, the country remains an important player in bitcoin mining, thanks to cheap labor and computing power (paywall). Chinese clients who pay for bitcoins to be mined on their behalf can monitor progress remotely, using apps on their mobile phones.

Note: Below many photos of bit coin mining equipment, but comes with an annoying car video that can be ignored after scrolling down.

Oh boy now I’m really smiling and feeling good here. 🙂 You too, good job. I’ll never forget the best post I ever read, Your classic, farmboy goes to the tax assessor. I saw the whole story in my mind. The parking lot, the mud the sweat everything. 🙂

Between you and the others, I feel a lot better now. Not lonely anymore. Thank you. 🙂 I was thinking I offended everybody here because of my anti imported car extremism.

Keep posting. I’m at work otherwise I’d post more.

Maddog is right, if gold ever does what we hope for this place will be hopping.

I think most read the posts but they might not answer. Doesn’t mean they’re not reading them. The ones I worry about is ones sent to me I might miss if I don’t have time to read back posts and more so if I’m so busy and this tired I can’t remember if I acknowledge it or not lol less it didn’t require one. I tend to get emerged in task orientated things cuz if your going to do something work or at home do it right lol what I’m seeing from some young is spurts of energy followed by avoidance excuses and dumping if they can get away with it on others instead of follow through which just puts more work on the nest person then try to make it a presidents till they’re doing little to nothing. They lane it the snowflakes now. Trump had a better word, low energy although they may look like they have it because they’re not using it up just everyone else’s. Excuse typo o s tired.


Posted by Maddog @ 14:01 on February 12, 2018  

I think we have to put up with the lack of posts, as a sure sign we are in the most unloved mkts of all, which has to be a v bullish sign, long term.

I bet those Vix boards were rammed with posters a month ago….


Posted by Mr.Copper @ 13:32 on February 12, 2018  

Copy that. I often hear from you Maddog and Buygold, and do appreciate it. Very annoying situation. We all know Gold and Silver are important and should cost a lot more, compared to stocks bonds and real estate. Especially Silver that I consider “free” at these $16 prices. $16 is one ounce, for one take out dinner????

Maddog @ 11:10 on

Yep silver miners seem especially strong today.

Knock …


Posted by Mr.Copper @ 13:22 on February 12, 2018  

Copy on that Maddog. Too much damage has been done to the US economy. It’s beyond repair now. They and their “dreamer” system is boxed in. They are kidding themselves. I think they waited too long, (re excessive imports and chump change wages) and too little, then Trump and the latest group are trying harder, but so far its mostly bells whistles and psychology. Like Indians doing a rain dance.

No your not alone. A lot of good posts here this weekend by all.

Morning Mr Copper

I think ur pissed u didn’t get the Fed job….they’re still not ready for any common sense.


Posted by Mr.Copper @ 12:32 on February 12, 2018  

Thanks for the comeback, what you said is nice to know I’m not all alone here. 🙂

I didn’t have time to mention this before and now after two 20 hr shifts can hardly write. Your story which told of the encyclopedia sales brought back a memory. I was probaby the only surfer in those days that liked books. I used to check out as many books as I could carry on every subject the library could handle except spelling lol When the sales man came along I wanted that too. In those days they wanted credit and did a credit check. I didn’t do Dent so carried no credit cards. They told me I don’t have bad credit but I don’t have any credit because of it, no credit cards. So you mean if your not in debt and owe no money you can’t get them but if you do have debt you can. Go figure. That’s how I learned the value of debt. Turned out I’d go to garage sales and thrift stores looking for books. I even have a first edition of The Grapes of Wrath that way. There were others that would of been valuable including old magazines I couldn’t afford on my budget then as my focus was science or old recipes. As coincidence goes a little while later there was a full encyclopedia for sale on the cheap and no debt.
I guess that’s one thing you won’t see anymore due to the internet.
Sales is good experience learning to talk to people and helps in future business later. That’s one thing I’d pass on because I’d feel guilty of they wound up in debt over it. I wasn’t sales smart enough like you to think of higher end areas.

Maya – that is a great train photo

Posted by Alex Valdor @ 12:03 on February 12, 2018  

They must be stoking pulverized coal and forcing draft to get that plume of sparks .

A few days ago , you posted another that I thought was spectacular . In it was a young roan horse galloping counter the train movement . The burgundy accent stripe on the train , the roan’s spring coat , and the pinkish ballast along the tracks really set it off .

Good morning Mr. Copper

Posted by eeos @ 12:03 on February 12, 2018  

I’m glad you’re in the room. You’ve been making me think critically for over 17 years. I don’t always agree, but I enjoy your posts

Geez where is everybody??

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 11:53 on February 12, 2018  

Too damn quiet and lonely here. Even any feedback would be very nice, even if its totally negative.
