Then there's this:

Buying a Tesla with bitcoin? Not so fast
by Jeff Moranteen, CNBC, Dec 9 2013

Virtual currencies seemed a bit more real following reports last week that someone bought a Tesla Model S using bitcoins in California.

The actual story, however, appears a little less exciting, according to the dealership's general manager.

Pietro Frigerio, the general manager of Lamborghini Newport Beach in Costa Mesa, Calif., told CNBC on Monday that he never actually accepted bitcoin during the transaction. Instead he treated the purchase like he would with a buyer asking to pay in foreign currency or gold bars: he told them to convert the bitcoins to U.S. dollars first.

The government should have invested in bitcoin instead of GM

I signed up with Coinbase and was going to buy before Christmas... it was ~850 I didn't.

It's now at $720


I wish I had bought last March. Ugh.

I would be on my way to opening my own gun shop and range right now if I would've just jumped in with my $2000 when I planned on it way back earlier this year.

Life lesson learned.

I finally set up a separate bank account insulated from my others to use to mess with BTC. but it is so depressing to only buy a few hundredths of a BTC for $40

I need to wait and see if it drops a little again anyway, it seems to be bouncing between 6/700 and 850.

It's starting to act more like the stock market and is reacting to news, not to feelings.

While watching Blacklist last night, they mentioned Bitcoin when making a untraceable transaction. I got a kick out of it . Did anybody else catch that?
