Proves bbing is more dangerous than pro football, f1 racing, or rugby

American football players have a very short shelf life except for quarterbacks.  The majority have their bodies ruined in a few short seasons. I'm friends with a guy that was a lineman for the Detroit lions for 7 years.  He said if he knew what would have happened to his body he would have never played foot ball. He played pop warner, high school, division I and pro.  Now at around 60 he can't run a step. Has trouble walking. His knees, back and shoulders are shot. He can't lift weights and said he probably couldn't do push ups because of his shot shoulders. He has mental problems from all the concussions. All that crashing into huge, powerful fast guys destroyed his body.  He doesn't even want to talk about football. The guy came from a broken family too as a kid. He grew up across the street from my wife and they are the same age. My wife told me one day he got into a fight with his brother and they both picked up cinder blocks and were hitting each other with it. My wife showed me pictures of him as a young adult on the beach and he looked like a bodybuilder and was about 275lbs as linemen were from that era. Having that size and being explosive is some dangerous combination.

It's becoming completely insane now.

These lockdowns don't work, only wreck the economy, close down businesses, cause massive job losses and create far more stress and misery.

Is all good. The big money is coming from the institutional players into BTC. Some of that BTC gains in turn bleed into Eth. And beyond that into Alts. Its like BTC is the planet, and the alts all circulate around like moons. The alts may well outperform in the short term, purely due to smaller market cap. But make no doubts about it - BTC is the big Daddy, and the rest are to some extent parasites of the crypto ecosystem, who from time to time are having a nice meal. :)

It would not surprise me at all if alts (including ETH) in the near team, outperform BTC.

Lockdowns don't work. If an individual wants to lock down then let that person do it. In the US they are politically motivated with questionable statistic manipulation.  The worst lockdowns were in Democrat states with numerous examples of top Democrat politicians ignoring their own rules for the masses. Now that Biden is in Michigan, Illinois, NY and California are all talking about opening.  The draconian shutdowns had two goals. One was to destroy Trump's amazing economy. The second was to come up with changing voting with mail in ballots into democrat approved computers.  See you can wait in line to buy groceries but standing in a line to vote was too dangerous.  Requesting an absentee ballot wasn't an option. Everyone had to have a mail in ballot in blue states.
