    Lol...That's funny. Well, I don't do a lot of hunting...it's been 6 years since I've been! Though, I do love our place in the country with a cabin on property, no neighbors, etc. From that aspect, yes, I'll take being a country boy. 
    The avatar and name are based off an old nickname...Big Buck. I am 6'6" tall (used to be 6'8" but had to have my lower spine fused while in the Marine Corps where I was an intelligence analyst).
     
    I have a B.S. in Business and Accounting and 2 Master's Degrees.
     
    Lol...my voice is because I've lived in the South too long...not originally from here, but, the drawl kinda sticks to ya!
     
    No worries! I promise!

    OMG, LOL.  Thanks.  At this point, even though I haven't read the entire thread, and there's time still left, you are now in the running with the Russian boy video.  And on 2nd thought @Flintstone's Hitler video is not out of the competition.  It's basically a 3 way tie at this point.  It would be tough for me to decide between the three, were nobody else to post something funnier, which hopefully they do, which would make my decision easier and make me laugh even more, which is the entire point of this thread.

    So based on your voice, and your avatar, I would guess you're into hunting and the such, or am I being too judgmental?  Just I always saw you as like one of the most intelligent users here EVER, and I wouldn't associate that with a "good old country boy" that hunts and whatnot.  Again, too judgmental?  Also, I could be mistaken about the things I presume you're interested in.  Also, for my entire life I've hunted, fished & trapped, and I also invest, and most recently in crypto, so I guess it's possible to be part of both worlds.

    100 XRP.
    Unlimited entries to people registered prior to 8-22-18.
    Post a meme, a joke, a video, anything you want that is humorous.
    Deadline for entry is this Friday - 2 days from now - 11:59 PM Eastern (US) time.
    I don't see a logical way to putting this to vote via a poll - would take too much work and cheating could be involved - so since it's my contest, I will choose the winner based on whichever made me laugh the most.
    I blame @Flintstone for this.  He had me in tears just a short while ago after posing a Chuck Norris video.  So much fun.  I really enjoy laughing.  @Flintstone is not allowed to use the same video in this thread.
    Edit:  NVM, what @dragonbait said.
    Edit #2:  The video that started this whole thing.  I seriously did have tears in my eyes when watching it.

    By no means was I comparing XRP to AAPL or AMZN.  That wasn't the point.  It was 2 different points.
    1.) Charts.  Looking at the AAPL chart, it did nothing forever (just like XRP back in the day), then had dramatic spikes and drops (just like XRP the last 9 months), and ultimately just ended up being the most valuable company on earth.
    2.) The value of buying something you believe in and just holding it basically forever.  Sure, I trade, I play options, but I have long positions that I bought FOREVER ago that I just decided I would keep and not trade.
    Took a gamble on XRP.  I like it.  Not saying it's AAPL.  Just drawing comparisons to the chart and the value of holding long term.  Hope that makes sense to you now.
    Oh, and just to agree with you on 1 point, I too wish Ripple were a share.

    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.

    @Z3NInvestor I would suspect that if XRP stays below .01 for over a year that Ripple would not be able to survive as a company.  Ripple survives by their sales of XRP. Prepared for it? This ain't my first rodeo and I'm sure I've been in crypto years before you ever heard of it.  I could take it - but Ripple wouldn't be able to and the project would be dead.
