DNYUZ(.com)

That's where the online report (from MidEngineManiac) is at.

So I see where if I could scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, I could click where it says "About" to read about DNYUZ(.com)

But I can't scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, because the page keeps filling up with more text and images and getting longer. The more I scroll down, the longer it gets, and it wipes away the part where I see (momentarily) "About" and "Contact" and other common website options.

So trying to read "About" DNYUZ(.com) is literally a Sisyphean task.

It even calls to mind Zeno's paradox.

That's a fine how do you do.

Friend had bit coin, was sure it was his retirement, said he had a bunch. A couple years later, he had a stroke and no clue where the login or passwords might have been. Ended up getting cancer and died with no idea where to find the bit coin.

So, where is the bitcoin, if it is a real item, and limited, and so many get lost like this, what can be used for money?

Like SS for the guy that pays in his entire life and dies before he can draw any of it.
The "bank" now has the money.

Gift cards are a smaller per event item, but free money to stores. I find them regularly with a few bucks each. Lots of Starbucks ones for 10, 15 each. $25 restaurant cards. Occassionally there's a 50 dollar card for Walmart.

THOSE you can check the balance, take to the bank (credit union in my case) swipe and deposit whatever is left on it into your account. Since that what I use for online ordering, I let them pile up for a while then do that. Last swipe trip recovered about 90 bucks.

Here you can. It's just like taking an advance off a regular card.

Check the back of the card, if it says it has no monetary value then its only good for what its intended for.

Oh, ok, I will tell his kids to contact the department of bit coin for support. Social Security is a bad insurance plan. It is still better that it is there.
