2022.01.18 07:47 ChinkInShiningArmour Frugality vs. social standing
Thrifty PFCers, how do you balance the conflicting interests of being frugal and maintaining social standing?
I come from a middle class and moneywise family; despite going to university and working hard on my career, my financial returns in life haven't sustained the quality of life of previous generations, or even within my generation. I do as much as I can to stretch my dollar: dress warmer at home to use less heat, eat less meat and control portions to save on groceries, perform my own maintenance to save on car, etc. I've become as frugal as ever in the past year thanks to climate crises and supply chain shortages.
As my life has become more separate from the family, so has my awareness faded of the social gap. Recently I hosted family for some visits, which I handled to the best of my ability. I knew my hospitality was somewhat lacking but didn't assume any hard feelings. Some time later, word came back to me that I was cheap and stingy, a poor reflection on the family. Honestly, the hurt and shame from learning this was worse than being robbed by a criminal.
I understand the virtue of being more generous to others than to yourself. I like to think I have some of that virtue. But it is hard to practice as a single human struggling to make it on their own. I feel terrible about my reputation within the family, and am sickened by the thought of my friends having the same embarrassment. It is unlikely I will ever earn the income made by my peers, and impossible I will amount to the accomplishments of my parents. Is there any recovery for this fall from grace?
TL;dr I make less than most of my extended family and friends but live within my means. Being ostracized now for falling out of social rank.

It was spore drive. The Cytherian head and the probe was just a hyperadvanced candle ghost that gave Barclay a yeast infection that could connect to the Mycelial Network.
Because Spore Drive was supposed to be classified, they never used it again. Starfleet Medical also kept it private, and told Barclay to just tell people he's had intimate relations with that he may have given them space thrush. This meant nobody ever found out.

2022.01.18 07:47 yokesh351 Tsunami affected in Tonga receive donations in bitcoin
The former deputy of the Kingdom of Tonga, Mata'i'ulua 'i Fundamotu, known as Lord Fusitu'a and promoter of a Bitcoin Law for that country, made public the address of a bitcoin (BTC) wallet to receive donations and thus help those affected by the natural disaster that occurred on those oceanic islands.
Last Saturday, January 15, a submarine volcano located in front of the islands that make up Tonga, erupted, causing waves of more than 1.2 meters . The event produced floods that affected, among other areas, the city of Nuku'alofa, capital of that nation located in the South Pacific.
Given the magnitude of the tsunami, Twitter user and bitcoiner suggested that Fusitu'a accept donations in bitcoin to help the affected population.“You need to set up a bitcoin wallet for Tonga and receive [donations] through the Lightning Network. I have learned so much about you and your nation through BTC and Twitter,”
After a couple of hours, Fusitu'a responded by leaving the bitcoin address to receive the BTC. So far it can be seen that the address has received a total of 0.19385171 BTC , which represents about USD 8,000 at the current market price.
Until now, the seriousness of the damage caused by the tsunami is unknown, largely because the country is cut off from communication. However, the speaker of the Tonga House of Representatives, Lord Fakafanua, said, according to CNN, that the country requires immediate assistance in providing its citizens with clean water and food.
Some experts estimate that the scale of the devastation could be immense. There is data indicating that the volcanic eruption was the largest since the 1991 explosion at Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines.
bitcoin and tonga
As mentioned at the beginning, Tonga is trying to promote a Bitcoin Law similar to the one in El Salvador .
Fusitu'a, who is currently the president of the Union of Parliamentarians against Corruption, presented a 5-step plan to bitcoinize that country on January 14,
In addition to the bureaucratic paths that the text must follow to be approved by the different instances, they have also suggested the potential use of Tonga's geothermal energy , in the same way that El Salvador does for Bitcoin mining
The event of the volcanic eruption, the tsunami and the donations in BTC, could work as an incentive to accelerate the process that would allow the leading cryptocurrency develpment to become legal tender in the nation located in Oceania.
Bitcoin, an option to make donations
Just as Tonga is receiving donations in bitcoin, other international organizations and social organizations have taken advantage of the advantages offered by the Bitcoin network to request donations in support of different humanitarian initiatives.
In that sense, at the beginning of 2021 the American Cancer Society began to receive bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. The intention was to help restart crucial research to find new discoveries and improve treatments.
For its part, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) announced a cryptocurrency fund to support open source technology for children around the world.
