    Bitcoins

    So what do you guys think of Bitcoin going crazy? For anyone who hasn't heard of it, Bitcoin is a digital currency that you can buy and sell online. Definitely a high-risk proposition.

    I think it's cool, and I've invested some beer money in it (I used coinbase), but man, I get the impression that the bottom is gonna fall out of it hard. Having said that, I wish I had bought into it years ago..

    I'd say it's gambling at this point.

    A couple of years ago you could set your computer to "mine" them, and you would only have to pay the cost of electricity in order to produce bitcoins. Now that's not really an option anymore, and you've got to pay for them.
