Bitcoin is going to teach you a lesson. A costly one

There’s nothing like watching someone trying to create a fake currency to make my day complete. Bitcoin is the silliest of ideas, even when explained in video format from the website. I registered a new account on the site just for fun. The crazy thing is that when I logged in, I discovered that I can buy one Bitcoin for $199.95. Really? Sign me up for that! In fact, put me down for a whole pocketful of them. Oh, wait, sorry, digital pocketful, since, you know, they don’t really exist.

If you pay $200 for a single fake digital coin, you have something seriously wrong with you. And if you have $200 to blow on something stupid, you can donate it to the Ken Hess Party Fund. In fact, I’ll accept Hesscoin exchanges in $5.00 increments. So, you can get 40 Hesscoins for the price of one Bitcoin. And Hesscoins have real value because I’ll turn them into party supplies for me and 100 of my closest friends, which could include you. Maybe more if the donations…er…crowdsourced funds…er…purchases pile up to a level sufficient to support the guests.
