    But I feel the need to post this thread.  Granted "Speculation" is implied, as per the title of this place.
    But YO! S**t is SERIOUSLY about to happen!  I've dropped so many clues here and there.  I've a s**t-ton of money invested in this crap.  It's going to happen, FOR REAL.

    BarryM17 got a reaction from Worldcryptoboss in How much Xrp do you hold? Anonymous Poll   
    I posted my amount in the poll.  I get the whole anonymity aspect of things, but there's a part of me where I'd REALLY love to know how much forum members HONESTLY own.  I've publicly on this forum in the past stated how much I own, even though the likes of @Hodor have advised against it.  Aside from a side Toast wallet I use for giveaways, I keep everything stored on Nano S's, which are locked in a safe in my office.  I've asked this question before, but seriously how am I putting myself at risk if I disclose how much I own.  What, you're going to find out my identity, figure out where I work, come to my office in a secure facility that requires key card access to enter, figure out the combination code for my safe, get my Nano's, figure out my secret keys, then steal my money??????
    It would just be nice to know what everyone here actually owns.

    BarryM17 got a reaction from Tull in Why do you want to get rich?   
    Meh, to each their own.  I've had many different professions, and I've financially done well for myself.  I'm currently President & CEO for a non-profit organization.  I pay myself a meager salary, as I don't need it.  My employees don't get paid much either - they're mainly in it to help people.  We have several facets to our organization.  First, is an emergency shelter, which we take in and house homeless people, domestic abuse victims, etc.  We provide both single individuals, and families with rooms accommodating their size needs.  We have a food-pantry stocked with non-perishable food items (all donated) which the residents are welcome to.  We have a room with blankets, pillows, clothes, fans, etc. (all donated) which the residents are welcome to.  We have a room with toiletries - toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, diapers, etc., which the residents are welcome to.  Everyone in the emergency shelter is provided access to a public shower/bathroom area, a kitchen where they can mark and store items in refrigerators, and a microwave and a stove which they can cook with.
    Then, we transition them from the emergency shelter up to our next 3 floors, in which they'll become more independent - having their own bathroom in their own room, etc.  We have mandatory life skills classes, parenting classes, classes on helping them find jobs, etc.  We help them apply for housing assistance, food stamps & free cell phones, etc.  Once transitioned, they either take advantage of their housing assistance and move somewhere else, or take advantage of one of the many properties we own - still with housing assistance.
    So suffice it to say, I've encountered the abused, the homeless, the drug addicts, the alcoholics, etc.  These are desperate people in dire need of help, many of whom have infant babies.  I have found dozens if dead bodies in rooms because of overdoses.
    I feel like we're doing a good service here.  I personally donate a lot to charity.  For some reason I agree with you on the whole building a school thing, or saving the dolphins - just not stuff I care about.  I also say three cheers to the people whom want to be rich.  I figure if you've earned it you deserve it.  I have no guilt about having money.  I just don't mind giving a little back.  Plus, karma always rewards (or punishes) you.

    At the end of it all, I simply can not deny @Flintstone, he seriously did make me laugh the most.  I assume you want me to send the 100 XRP to the same address you've previously given me?
    However, if interested, I also LMAO'd at @JoelQuinn's Russian boy post, and would gladly send them 25 XRP if they're interested.  If interested, PM me a wallet address.  If tag info is required. Please provide.
    Also LMAO'd at some of the stuff @dtones5503 posted.  If interested in 25 XRP PM me with what I just mentioned in the above sentence
    Lastly, even though @DariStar said they were here just for the meme's and didn't care about the XRP, I LMAO'd at your post, so if you are interested in 25 XRP, refer to the above, and reply accordingly.

    BarryM17 got a reaction from webdevxrp in Is it really possible to all become wealthy, frrom XRP?   
    Not going to read this entire thread - simply going to respond to your question with my thoughts, which seems to be what you were asking people to do.
    MANY people have already become millionaires from investing in this asset.  Yes, it does look too good to be true, but again many people have become millionaires already by investing in it.  Also, many people, whom bought at the ATH and have a terrible DCA are seriously in the red.  Also it could go to zero - all crypto could go to zero.  Also it could moon.  Any investment is a risk.  Never invest more than you can afford to lose.
    Would you rather buy 1 share of AMZN at $1880 (which, yes it will probably continue to go up forever, all-be-it at a slow pace), or use that $1880 to purchase 5645 XRP?
    "If" XRP would go to $100, you'd have $564,500.  Far more of a gain than buying AMZN.  Also XRP could go to zero.  Also XRP could go to $589, in which case you'd have $3.33M.  Also, XRP could go to zero.
    It's the most speculative investment ever.  Anything is possible.  Up to you if you think the reward outweighs the risk.
    Personally, I just bought more.  So dirt cheap right now.  Whole crypto market has been bearish FOREVER NOW.  At these levels, how much lower can it go?  Oh yeah, zero.  But I doubt blockchain is going to die, and XRP has real world use cases.
    Just my 2 cents.  Hope that helps.

    Snoopy's Chick Fil'A clone recipe
    @SgtPeppers @BarryM17
    I don't have a recipe for fried chicken wings asian style, but this is my Chick Fil'A Fried chicken clone recipe.  You can dip it into an asian sauce, or if you want it coated put the sauce in the bowl toss in some of the finished chicken and lightly toss it to coat.
    3 cups Dill Pickle Juice (Usually we do the Kosher Dill Pickles you get in the refrigerated section... About 3 jars should do it.... If we're really good we will go to the local farmers market get some kosher dill pickles and also ask the guy for some juice.)
    2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
    2 eggs
    2 cups milk
    3 cups flour
    1/3 cup powdered sugar
    2 tablespoons salt
    2 tablespoons pepper
    1 tablespoon paprika
    Cut up the chicken into what you feel is bite sized "nuggets" trimming and cutting away the junk.
    let it sit overnight in the pickle juice
    So here's what I do then... I get a BIG (by which I mean depth (about 12 inches) so I can do this without making a huge mess....
    Mix up eggs and milk together in the pot...
    Combine the dry ingredients, then dump it by thirds into the pot and mix it all up.  Dump in the chicken (NOT the pickle juice).
    Mix it all up so that all of the chicken is coated.  Let that sit in the refrigerator for at least TWO hours.
    Set up your deep fryer for 375 Degrees
    I don't usually use the basket, but drop the chicken in.  Start with one, let it cook for about 6 to 8 minutes... Depending on your deep fryer it could be less time.  Pull out the one chicken piece and cut into it and make sure it's cooked.  Adjust accordingly.
    Do up the rest of the chicken.  Be smart and don't over fill your deep fryer.  Drain on the a cooling rack with paper towels underneath.
    If ANYONE has a clone recipe for their BBQ sauce (or a really good BBQ, or honey mustard recipe) I would love to have it....

    Hi Christopher,
     
    Interested in how you can reduce your cross-border payments inefficiencies? Then download the new AFP Payments Guide, underwritten by MUFG Union Bank.
     
    In this guide you’ll learn:
    • About some of the prominent systems in cross-border payments
    • How to determine if you should consider a new payments system
    • The pros and the cons of new technology available in the payments space
     
    Efficiency, transparency and optimization should be your top concerns when it comes to cross-border payments. While new technologies can help in these facets, no one system is perfect for everyone. Find out what is best for you and your organization in this new guide.
    You must sign up to download the full white-paper and I'm unable to attach PDFs so I've taken some screenshots to assist.
