The captain of the guard asked him, "Where are you going? Tell the truth -- the alternative is death by hanging."

"I am going," said Nasrudin, "to be hanged on that gallows."

@mathlover2 Yea, I use some of the comfy short-term stuff too.

My guess is that it's mostly okay, if you're on both sensible and short-sighted platforms, so I've signed up to Librepay. That way I can use it when I can, even if I'm not actively disincentivising Musk-coin.
