    Schellings Model

    Check out this video on Schellings Model. It's a sociological model that tries to emulate social segregation based on race, wealth inequality etc.. I encourage everyone to watch the whole video. https://www.coursera.org/learn/model-thinking/lecture/1qEBU/schellings-segregation-model In essence the model shows that even a slight preference of individuals living with a similar race can lead to (relatively) huge levels of segregation on the macro level. In fact the model predicts that if individuals are incredibly racist then we don't get segregation at all. Now it should be noted that this model is based on extreme simplifications and it may or may not shed light on real segregation in the world - but despite a few simple rules the results are quite impressive.

    Cubster's Eating Records

    that sounds like really good progress. But be careful of pizza, burger chips etc.. Not because they are fattening but because they will cause you to build up plaque in your arteries and you will suffer from a range of issues later in life. The worst thing about plaque is that you can't get rid of it so the best way to avoid a heart attack is to eat healthy from day 1.

    Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    Isn't this like asking weather or not it's halal to buy a winning lottery ticket?

    Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    Do you actually believe people who consume bitcoin are willing to pay those crazy prices for it - or do you think the prices are being driven up by excited investors such as yourself. That will determine weather or not bitcoins a bubble.

    Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    I wonder why bubbles are bad for the economy? It's not like that people wasted got destroyed - it just got given to someone else.

    how is this relevant to bitcoin

    Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    1) you could argue that for every successful business someone else had to lose out. Ie Walmart crushes local competition when it moves into a new area. Based on that is it halal to invest in Walmart. 2) I don't know what you technically mean by speculation but you are pretty much guaranteed a profit in this thought experiment (see binomial distribution)

    Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    Is betting multiple times on a biased random walk haram. So if a coin has 70% chance of being heads and 30% chance of being tales and if you win you double your money. So if I have $100 I am (pretty much) guaranteed a profit if I keep betting $1 on heads.

    Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    I wouldn't think so. The insurance company assumes your risk - so you are buying a service from them. People don't get insurance hoping on the off chance their house gets flooded so they can win a payout - they buy insurance in order to secure their assets incase of a disaster

    Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    i mean that adds market value to bitcoin - so if anything it detracts from bitcoin being a bubble

    An awesome shirt i found, Proud to be Muslim.

    you can design the shirt and teesprings have a factory that produces the shirts on demand. You get like a 50/50 split of any revenue made. This dude just decided to make a design and advertise it to a niche audience lol
  23. What's the big deal about net neutrality. I realise you could control information but at the end of the day the infrastructure belongs to/ is licensed by the isp. Shouldn't they have the final say on how much bandwidth every site is allowed?
