Double March

The date is now Monday, March 366th, 2020.

Sorry, you don't get a new March until you've finished the last one.

If you see anyone claiming that today is March 365th, congratulate them on fucking up their leap year math.

perl -e 'use Date::Parse; use POSIX; my @t = localtime; print strftime ("%a Mar ", @t) . int (1 + 0.5 + ((str2time (strftime ("%Y-%m-%d 3:00", @t)) - str2time ("2020-03-01 3:00")) /(60*60*24))) . strftime (" %X %Z 2020\n", @t);'

Crypto Fart

"Crypto art" is literally just "numbered prints, but each time I sign my name I also promise to burn down a local park."

In case you are fortunate enough to have not heard about this latest con:

Someone has convinced a bunch of innumerate artists that Dunning-Krugerrands are not a planet-incinerating Ponzi scheme. I've had to start blocking them on the Twits to avoid hearing about it, even the artists whose work I used to enjoy. They think that making a buck trumps setting the world on fire. "Proof of useless work" is a global suicide pact.

bombsfall:

If anyone wants to pay me crypto art prices to make them a gif or a png we can skip the middle man here. I'll even draw you up a special certificate that says it's your gif or png.

I can send you a paper copy too. Let's get nuts.

You wouldn't even have to use as much electricity as Delaware to do it. If you want I can like sent you a certificate dedicating a full year of our home's electrical use in your name, it can be part of the art.

jeremyzimmer:

How does this help rich people launder money?

tiny_cinema:

Could you write out the certificate in binary so it feels more legit?

Theophite:

Imagine if keeping your car idling 24/7 produced solved Sudokus you could trade for heroin.
