  1. TZ scared the shit out of me lol idk why but the theoreticals from those episodes get my mind wondering about things and I dove like it. But I loved the episode where ol guy has a stopwatch and tried to rob the bank. Scary episode to me

  2. It could work both ways. Point partly was currency of any sort is worthless when you need life’s necessities like water.

    Was just an ironic twist added at the end that their means of exchange was valueles 100yrs in the future.

    And besides, try exchanging 0.1btc in the middle of a desert with no phone for a swig of water haha

  3. Ask anyone in history what the chance of gold going to zero is in the next 100 years
    100bc zero
    1000 zero
    1900 zero
    1960 zero
    1999 zero?
    2010 zero?
    2021???
