I was having a political discussion with a friend, and he posed the question:
"What rights and liberties have been lost or eroded during the Bush and Obama years?"
The first thing that came to mind was that I can no longer enter an airport terminal without having to take off my shoes.

[quote]It's easy to dismiss Bitcoin or crypto-currencies as the flailings of a disaffected, semi-anarchist hacker community trying to undermine the system. But you know what?

In theory (according to most), it is desirable for money supply to increase and decrease with the growth and contraction of the economy. We know that with a certain oft-discussed crypto-currency, this is impossible -- its money supply is fixed.
How would one go about designing a new crypto-curre...

Does "sub" not equate to "below," i.e., "under"? I thought going under par is the ultimate goal. Or are there contexts in which it is desirable to be over par, i.e., "superpar"? Any of you non-subpar posters have insight on this contradiction in terms?...
