Asteroid Mining vs. Cloud Mining May 3, 2006

Posted by shubber in Uncategorized.

Many of you already know my views on the claims of asteroid mining proponents – in particular the “I’ve never taken an Econ 101 class and don’t know the most fundamental concepts of supply, demand, and market-clearing prices” claim that many asteroids have TRILLIONS of dollars of precious metals just waiting for a smart VC to fund Company X to go extract.

Well, i’ve found a much more achievable mining opportunity, courtesy of this brilliant website:

Cloud Mining

Because, you know, every cloud has a silver lining…

…and that silver has a market value.

Thanks for the wake-me-up, Shubber…now I have to clean up all the coffee that squirted out of my nose…

(This is a humorous post about a serious Website.)

I happened to find this blog and a possibly-related Website on the same day. Check out http://www.howcultswork.com and think about how the warning signs there apply to the alt.space community…

Tongue only half-in-cheek,

I don’t know about a cult, but that reminds me of my first marriage 🙂
