What's to stop a drugs cartel building a huge server farm and dedicating it to crypto mining?

That's already happening - bitcoin mining rigs were found in a raid on one of the Irish drug gang's operations in the Netherlands.

Its the 1960s and here is a European city with a couple of football grounds in the foreground

Name the city

There's mountains in the background but that city is clearly nowhere near the Alps as all the buildings have flat roofs so this place doesn't get snow.

Mountains in hot country - Pyranees?  I've been to San Sebastian and it's not that, it's clearly not Barcelona so Bilbao?

Gone under the radar for a bit, had another anatomy and practical lesson this week and just gone balls deep back into tension and mechanics of movement. Absolutely fascinates me A) how hard optimal/efficient movement is, B) how people can go so wrong (me included with anything Lat based) and C) how lucky some guys/girls are that they have no idea what to do or how they did it, but they just got it bang on from the word go.

Still strength work in the background. Alternative deadlift and squats with 1 week heavy 1 week speed work. Speed work this week 6x3 120 and felt it go up very very fast until set 6, then it felt like regular ones, oops.

All movement feels good, up to 88kg right now (likely Xmas as opposed to massive muscle gains). But will carry on nutritionally in the Xmas spirit and look to gain some normality in Jan. As a disclaimer to anyone reading this, I have reasonably good habits, I do not recommend people who aren't nutritionally focused do this cos you could actually hammer 4-5lbs of FAT over these few weeks.



I did some BoR and RDL on Monday really focussing on keeping the lats tight and they felt fantastic. It's so hard to keep the lats locked in whilst doing bent over movements but when it clicks it feels great.

BoR are at 110kg now and I'm going to need straps soon with those. RDL at 120kg and DL up to 140kg. Slowly getting better with these.

My lower back seems to be holding up okay despite the heavier weights so all very positive.

On a less positive note I did a crazy triceps session on Saturday after big bench day and I've fucked my elbows. Not the brightest move as they'd been really good up to then.

Still can't get 135kg out for a single although 130kg is moving quicker. Might try 132.5kg on Saturday as I need a bit of a boost. Training partner managed 160kg for a very solid single. He's coming along nicely.

iraise - still want to train together but been massively struggling with family issues last few weeks and travelling to visit grandad in hospital miles away so haven't had chance to arrange.  Will still do it after new year if you still fancy it.

Does anyone do seated overhead dumbbell presses for triceps?  If so what size dumbbells do you bang 6-8 reps out with strict form and elbows tight and not sticking out?  I just think i am insanely strong at these compared to other tricep areas and other relative weights on other body parts.  Just interested if anyone else does this exercise for comparison purposes.

For a strict single arm I could probably do 18kg or so for 6 to 8 although because of elbow issues I go much lighter and aim for 12 to 15.

Double arm I've managed 50kg easy enough prior to elbow issues but 28kg now that my elbows are f**ked.

If you're good at these it seems weird that you struggle with your bench press as they're a huge contributor.

The famous couple is Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton I believe.

Hard to imagine what interest they might have in anything Celtic related.

Correct, it is Liz & Rich (as the Celtic fans know them Wink )

They were staying in a Bucharest hotel while Burton was filming Blackbeard which was used by Celtic fans attending a game v Upjest Dozsa in 1972. Being fond of a party the couple had a few drinks with the fans, after the game the fans got back to the hotel to find that they had organised a party for them in the ballroom, with Burton putting a considerable sum (between £2,000 & £5,000 depending on version of the story) behind the bar for champagne and caviar for the support.

Not sure how much Liz liked her Celtic tammy:

But Rich wore his Celtic scarf again:

Not as good as Laz's story of drinking with Jimmy Tarbuck in Barcelona on a Celtic trip, but a strange connection.

Where people usually get really screwed is where there is no regulation (I'm not saying regulation is perfect, far from it, but it does increase consumer protection).

So like it or not, Crypocurrency will be a rich breeding ground for conmen to screw over the public.

Strongly agree yes, regulation can't come quick enough. The guardian article above doesn't take away a lot from the actual statement that the SEC made. Overall it was a positive outlook and ethereum shot up about 25% overnight because of it.

Q&A
What is bitcoin and is it a bad investment?

One of a number of cryptocurrencies, bitcoin is not regulated and is controlled by a network of computers that update all transactions which take place on a variety of trading platforms around the world. It only exists digitally and is “mined” using mathematical equations.

But on Monday, a top central banker said the European Union should look at the possibility of regulating bitcoin because of the risk of money laundering. Speaking in Vienna, Ewald Nowotny, said: “Simply because of the scale, it is certainly increasingly necessary to discuss whether and in what form regulations are needed here.”

Nowotny, Austria’s central bank governor and also involved in setting interest rates at the European Central Bank, added: “A particular aspect that needs to be discussed ... is the question of how far the regulations on money laundering ... are relevant here.”

His remarks come after warnings from other senior bankers about the risks associated with bitcoin. Last week, Howard Davies, chairman of Royal Bank of Scotland, had said the sign should be put up from Dante’s Inferno – “Abandon hope all ye who enter here” – while Jamie Dimon, the head of JP Morgan, has talked about bitcoin as being worse than tulip mania and potentially used by “a drug dealer, a murderer, stuff like that”.

Fucking weak, cmon.

These greedy bankers really are threatened but they don't know where to begin. With crypto it is possible to actually prevent money laundering and the fraudulent handling of funds, something the current system managed to avoid for the rich and famous.

Shouldn't the people that control our wealth be interested in future technology and improvements to our monetary system?

Perhaps the key thing is that this is all unregulated. Historically, where you see unregulated activities there are often fraud and cons.

If you take mainstream financial services as an example, where Joe Bloggs gets ripped off is by investing with dodgy businesses not UK regulated, selling UCIS style products (unregulated collective investment schemes).

There have also been plenty of examples of the regulatory shutting UK regulated firms for selling UCIS style investments to naïve investors.

Where people usually get really screwed is where there is no regulation (I'm not saying regulation is perfect, far from it, but it does increase consumer protection).

So like it or not, Crypocurrency will be a rich breeding ground for conmen to screw over the public.
