What the US Government released about UFOs in plain English

You can read the report in PDF form straight from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence here: 

https://www.dni.gov/files/ODNI/documents/assessments/Prelimary-Assessment-UAP-20210625.pdf

It’s a boring 9-page document full of military jargon that admits that UFOs are real, but we don’t know what they are and the government is going to need more money to buy better sensors to spot them. The third page of the report sums up everything with an “executive summary”.

The limited amount of high-quality reporting on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) hampers our ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAP. The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) considered a range of information on UAP described in U.S. military and IC (Intelligence Community) reporting, but because the reporting lacked sufficient specificity, ultimately recognized that a unique, tailored reporting process was required to provide sufficient data for analysis of UAP events.

Blah blah blah… All those words just to say, “Yeah dem UFOs are real, but we don’t know what they are, and oh yeah, we call them UAPs now.” The fifth page goes on to explain that there are probably five explanations for UAPs.

Airborne Clutter:

These objects include birds, balloons, recreational unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), or airborne debris like plastic bags that muddle a scene and affect an operator’s ability to identify true targets, such as enemy aircraft.

So they want to hold on to their original explanation from way back in the day, weather balloons.

Natural Atmospheric Phenomena:

Natural atmospheric phenomena includes ice crystals,
moisture, and thermal fluctuations that may register on some infrared and radar systems.

USG or Industry Developmental Programs:

Some UAP observations could be attributable to developments and classified programs by U.S. entities. We were unable to confirm, however, that these systems accounted for any of the UAP reports we collected.

So it could be explained by people seeing the next top-secret fighter jet like the SR-72 or some cool new super drone.

Foreign Adversary Systems:

Some UAP may be technologies deployed by China, Russia, another nation, or a non-governmental entity.

Other:

Although most of the UAP described in our dataset probably remain unidentified due to limited data or challenges to collection processing or analysis, we may require additional scientific knowledge to successfully collect on, analyze and characterize some of them. We would group such objects in this category pending scientific advances that allowed us to better understand them. The UAPTF intends to focus additional analysis on the small number of cases where a UAP appeared to display unusual flight characteristics or signature management.

So anything that can zigzag unnaturally and fly faster than us gets put into the “other” category. The rest of the document admits that the Navy is finding most of the UAPs, but the Air Force and FAA are on it too. No pilot wants people to think they’re crazy so many have not and will not report seeing anything they think is out of this world. At no point in the document does it mention recovered UFO technology or aliens. I’m pretty disappointed. I’ve been waiting all year to read this admission that the government doesn’t know shit. Hell, we all knew that.

Hopefully, this is just the first step of revealing or discovering more information regularly. Do you think the government is lying? I don’t think they are lying, but I suspect they have some juicy 4K video of UAPs they’re not sharing with us.

Spot’s first walk around Luang Prabang

I didn’t plan on falling in love with Spot, but he’s my best friend now. He follows me around everywhere. He’ll scratch at my door to let him in every night and gets really jealous if I give affection or food to his sister or any of the other dogs at my apartment.

20210522_153921.jpg

The first couple of days we went on a walk it was just Spot and I. Now it seems all of the dogs in the neighborhood follow us around. There’s an ATM across the street where I live. There was this old man with the scariest-looking eyes I’ve ever seen and two of his young punk-looking friends who seemed like they were about to jump me when I got some cash out at 1 am. When I did my best dog bark, all of the dogs in the neighborhood came running to me and surrounded me. At first, they looked at me like a dumb white boy they were about to rip off, but when all my dog friends showed up, they just smiled and went away.

Spot found this bug. At first, I thought it was a child’s toy. Then I thought it was like a royal cockroach or something. I think it’s some type of wood beetle. I don’t know, but it looks cool. Do you know what it is?

20210524_142436.jpg

Spot followed me around town for about 10 km. He was very good about staying on the sidewalk and not running into the street, but I did have to carry him across a few intersections.

20210522_153706.jpg

Spot likes temples. He’ll lead the way in, look around a bit, then leave. Maybe he was a Buddhist in his last life.

20210524_154143.jpg

I gave him plenty of water along the way, but at one point he just wouldn’t have it anymore. He laid down near a bank to cool down in the shade and close to the cool air-conditioned air blowing out the door.

20210523_183232.jpg

I remember when I was a kid it seemed like everybody had these old World War II Army jeeps. This one is US Army, USMC, and Laos. Is this even a US Army version? It looks a little off to me. I think it’s a Russian or Chinese version but painted like an American one. They still look cool today. Imagine how cool they looked back in World War II.

20210507_151936.jpg

This is Mano Temple about halfway to the center of downtown Luang Prabang.

20210507_151036.jpg

One of the things I’ve loved about living here is that for all of 2020 and until now, nothing was shut down. They didn’t bother with restrictions except for closing down the borders, but recently everyone’s gone paranoid. All the restaurants and dance clubs are shut down because an American and Korean have died of the virus.

I love the bamboo barricades they’ve all put up here to protect their neighborhoods. It reminds me of when I was a 10-year-old boy with a fort in the woods and a sign that said, “No girls allowed!”

I was a hotel manager before the virus came. Now I’m just a Hive blogger and the guy who hangs out with the dogs all day. It’s sad to see these nice hotels being neglected like this. A lot of my friends who worked at the hotel with me are now delivery drivers. I can’t wait for this stupid virus to end and the world to come back to normal.

20210527_192431.jpg

The first bath we took together Spot was acting like it was the greatest injustice in the universe. Whenever you give a dog a bath you have to be very careful never to get the shampoo or water in their eyes or nose or they’ll have a very bad experience and won’t ever want to take a bath again. Now he will stand up on the toilet and let me shampoo him without moving. I just have to say the same thing several times. “Don’t move!”

20210522_203905.jpg

Why do dogs love getting up on the bed? I don’t like him doing this because he is a tick magnet. Can you see the guilty look on his face? I feel sorry for Spot because it’s so hot outside, so I’ll let him stay in the room to enjoy the cool air while I’ll walk to the shop to get a beer. He knows it’s wrong, but he’ll always sneak up there when he can.

Minotaur Warrior

The Minotaurs are the only people in Anumün rugged enough to inhabit the Giant Grasslands of Primordia, where the Dinosaurs roam. They live in wandering tribes, sleeping in hide tents and hunting Rexxies for their meat, clothing, and weapons. Minotaur spears are longer than they seem.

minotaur battle.png

I’m happy to see this week’s Splinterlands battle challenge is a cheap card. I only have a level two Earth summoner so it wasn’t much to level this common card up to level three increasing its health. It says in the Splinterlands lore that the Minotaurs hunt the dinosaur Rexxie.

Rexxie.png

If I were going to hunt this dinosaur, I would bring a 50 caliber sniper rifle or an RPG, but the Minotaurs are badass monsters who can get the job done with battle-axes and long spears.

Here on planet Earth, the American military is supposed to release to Congress, we the people, what they know about UFOs or UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon) next month. They changed the term from UFO to UAP to distance themselves from the stigma that UFOs are aliens.

uss-nimitz-2004-tic-tac-ufo-1579206308.jpg

The strange things in our skies are real, but it seems nobody knows what they are. I personally don’t think they are aliens. The most likely explanation is that the Chinese or Russians have leapfrogged us in technology. If it’s not them, then maybe there is an intelligent species here on Earth that have been around since the dinosaurs. Maybe they are dinosaurs themselves. Look how we people were able to evolve from apes to the scumbags we are today in just a million years. What kind of technology could an advanced species developed with hundreds of millions of years? So yes, I Jeremiah Lee Custis am throwing my crazy theory out there on the blockchain that these UAPs could be advanced dinosaurs or some other unknown ancient species’ technology. What do I win if my original, but weird theory is correct? Hopefully a joyride in one of those Tic Tacs. Maybe I should make a TikTok video about my Tic Tac idea. There was a scientist in 1982 who did a thought experiment about what would happen if a certain type of dinosaur had been able to evolve until today which he called dinosauroid.

OK, enough X-Files talk, let’s get back to my NFT battle…

mybattle.png

I chose Mylor Crowling as my summoner for his fantastic Thorns ability he gives to every card. I remember spending up to $100 on certain cards just because they had the Thorn ability, but Mylor Crowling gives it to all the monsters he summons. Anytime your card is attacked with a melee strike your enemy will suffer 2 health. I used the Minotaur Warrior and Rexie as bait or pawns to die first in the poison gas and inflict some Thorns damage before they took one for the team. Anytime there is poison gas, you should choose as many self-healing monsters as you can so they can recover a bit each round. I only chose the Child of the Forest because I was on a Snipe quest. And I chose the Sand Worm to cause some damage before it died in the gas. My enemy failed to choose any self-healing cards, so it was an easy victory. Thank you for checking out my battle today. What do you think about my dinosaur UAP idea?

GAMING LIFE

I’ve been a gamer since 1984, but getting GOLD everything in Mario Kart 8 was the pinnacle of my gaming journey.

My life was perfect as a young kid. Everyone felt sorry for me being a bastard so it was like having many dads. My grandfather, I called him Granddad, was the best though. He was a fighter pilot in Vietnam and after retiring from the Air Force he opened his own general aviation airport in Spearfish, South Dakota. He was my first best friend. He would take me everywhere with him. He taught me how to fly when I was just two years old. I have so many fond memories of him teaching me about avionics, flying the pipeline, and proper radio etiquette.atari.jpg

My stupid-ass mom and step-dad forced me to move to shithole Seattle with them in 1984. I remember kicking and screaming and being forced into the truck for the two-day journey west on I-90. I still hate her for it. (I joined the US Army when I was 17 just to get away from her.) My dog and Granddad died when we were there. I fucking hate Seattle. All it does is rain. I would slit my wrists before I ever went back there again. If it got wiped out by a nuclear bomb I’d be so happy.

I remember my step-dad asking me how old I was on the way. I told him, then asked him how old he was. Nineteen was his answer. I remember thinking that was a really big number compared to my four. I also remember going to his uncle’s house on the way and getting bullied for the first time by his kids. It wasn’t that bad. They just said that the sucker they were eating was my soon-to-be-born baby sister. I knew they were joking, but I kind of wished it was true. If it weren’t for her, we’d still be in South Dakota with Granddad and my dog. They didn’t let me play, but I remember they had an Atari 2600. It may look lame today, but it was like a magical box then. They must’ve gotten a newer console because we brought that one with us. I remember playing Pong and some crappy racing game. They were really fun, but when the Nintendo Entertainment System came out, everyone had or wanted one. It was so amazing. I remember playing Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt for years. I didn’t clear Mario until 1989, but by then everyone was like, “Who cares?”

Mario-Kart-8.jpg

I’ve had every Nintendo system over the years, even the Virtual BoyNintendo never had the most powerful system (except for the Nintendo 64), that thing was on another level, but they always seemed to make the best games. Mario Kart is by far the best game franchise to have ever been made in my opinion. I’ve been playing it since the Super Nintendo days.

When I was a teacher in Bangkok I had it made. I owned my condo free and clear, had zero transportation costs because I rode a BMX everywhere, and seemed to have money and pussy falling from the sky. I was a single dad but didn’t start work until 5 pm, so I would bring my son with me to work every day after he got out of school. My teenage students would take him shopping and to restaurants while I was teaching. I also had a Nintendo Wii U and a Playstation 4. I earned the nickname “GTA Teacher” from my students because we had so much fun killing cops as Michael, Trevor, or Franklin. I would invite fellow teachers over to my crib after work and we’d BBQ, smoke weed, and drink lots of beer. We’d play a bit of the new PS4 games, but everyone always wanted to play Mario Kart 8 together. My two buddies, Danie, Jim, and I played it online so much that we memorized every track and were probably in the top thousandth players in the world at the time. We had a technique that would help us defeat the A.I. too. We would play two players against the A.I. and had a rule, whoever won first place on the first track was king. The second player would serve as a bodyguard and this was enough to overwhelm the A.I. even though it loved to cheat with the “Blue Shell of Death” on almost every track. If the bodyguard had it, they would only fire it if the king fell back from first place.

Soi-Cowboy-Bangkok-702x336.jpg

Living in Bangkok was wild. We would go to strip clubs and see hundreds of beautiful naked women on stage, go dancing all night long, or just enjoy the best food and vacations, but to this day we all still smile whenever anyone mentions Mario Kart 8. It took a few months of grinding through all the tracks to get perfect runs, but we eventually earned the golden wheels, then the golden hang glider, and eventually golden everything. It really was a superior vehicle. My son recently got the game on his Nintendo Switch and I had one question for him, “Have you earned the golden kart yet?”

Can Vaseline get your dog’s ticks out?

I’ve really bonded with Spot here. He’s very intelligent which makes him hard to handle. My neighbor said they tried to adopt him, but he wouldn’t listen to them. Since he’s half husky he has way too much fur for this hot climate. He’ll be the happiest dog in town for about two months in the winter, but his summers won’t be fun. Maybe I’ll take him somewhere cold like Colorado. It’s a beautiful thing when a husky sees snow for the first time. It’s like the wolf takes over and they go wild running and jumping around. It never snows in Laos, so he sadly may never know the feeling.

20210515_163212.jpg

The way we adopt and raise dogs in the west is all wrong. We should see which dogs we naturally bond with, not just buy ones we think are cute. If they follow you then they follow you. If they don’t, it wasn’t meant to be. I think leashes are disgusting. How would you feel if someone dragged you around everywhere in chains like a slave? Would you really love them or would it just be a love born from fear? Spot trusts me and follows me everywhere, even across this scary bridge. I’ve had to teach him to never go in the street and he is super afraid of heights, but he’s a brave dog. Except for being aggressive and pooping and peeing inside, I just let my dogs do whatever they want. If they want to smell weird stuff all day or run into the bushes, they can have at it. Just be prepared for those annoying sticky plants and ticks if they do.

20210516_171733.jpg

Here’s our first selfie together. I don’t think he’s ever seen himself before. He was quite fascinated by his image on the phone. I’ll have to show him a big mirror and capture his reaction. I don’t know how many months old he is. He is half Lao dog so I don’t know if he gets way bigger or stays small. Either way, he will grow up to be a beautiful boy.

20210517_132701.jpg

He just wouldn’t stay still long enough for me to use the tweezers to get the ticks in his armpits out. Maybe he’s ticklish. I remember a doctor telling me when I was a kid that you can use petroleum jelly to get ticks out. Even though their head is in the skin sucking on blood they still need to breathe and the jelly will cut off their oxygen supply and they will pull their heads out gasping for air.

20210516_204447.jpg

I usually avoid cheap brands, but this one costs one-third the price. 7,000 kip is less than a dollar.

20210517_132748.jpg

I didn’t time it, but the ticks pulled their bloody heads out themselves after about a minute. I didn’t get a chance to take a shot of any of the nasty creatures because Spot ate them including a bit of jelly. Fair enough. They were eating him, now he ate all of them and got some of his blood back.

20210516_182038.jpg

Go back to sleep baby. Thank you for reading. Vaseline or petroleum jelly does indeed help remove ticks. You just need to use it liberally.

Rainy Wednesday Walk around Luang Prabang and Massage

I grew up in Seattle and was in the army so the rain ain’t no thing for me. Especially in a tropical environment. When I was in North Carolina for my job training, I remember it raining, then freezing, and having icicles on my hat, so I now feel this warm rain is refreshing and relaxing.

I find it quite amusing when it starts to rain and everyone runs away for cover like ants. What are they afraid of? If your clothes get wet, just wash them. You get completely wet when you take a shower so why is it so horrible when you have your clothes on?

20210331_133308.jpg

I also don’t have a problem swimming in this dirty brown Mekong River. The only time I won’t go in is if I have any open wounds. (I don’t want to waste money on antibiotics to kill the cellulitis and not be able to drink for a week.) Everyone always warns it’s dangerous and that I’ll die. From what? Is there a giant anaconda down there? Crocodiles? Maybe the story of the fire-breathing river monster is true. Most people think I’m weird, but I find their always living in fear and slaving away for fiat weird.

20210405_133039.jpg

This statue of Buddha appreciated the rain. It helped clean it and look good for this picture. I like the story of the Buddha’s enlightenment. One day while he was praying or meditating it started to rain very heavily and a giant king cobra came around him and expanded its hood flared neck to protect him from the rain.

20210405_133409.jpg

I’m sure that the monks can see me from their rooms but it feels really cool to come to an ancient temple and be all alone.

20210405_134856.jpg

One of my favorite temples in Luang Prabang is hidden on a hill on this corner. It’s not something you can see from the street, so I was living here almost two years before I found this gem.

20210420_150447.jpg

If you leave the city and go into the jungle, you’ll see people using these old American bombs to build their houses. The CIA led a secret war here that saw more bombs dropped than all of WWII. They were made of high-quality metal so are still a threat. Cluster bombs still kill and injure 300 people a year. As an American, I feel very sad that my government did this to these wonderful people and never took responsibility for the damage and death it’s still causing today.

20210405_133326.jpg

On an opposite note, peace. Can you spot the PEACE ☮️ bricks in the center of this picture? All buildings in Laos display their construction year. I’ve noticed almost every building from the 1970s used these peace bricks.

20210405_133550.jpg

Even when I ask my friends, who’ve spent years as monks, what all these paintings mean, they always don’t know. There’s a meaning and history in each scene. Good luck finding out what they are though.

20210420_145807.jpg

I do know about the giants though. Almost every temple will have them somewhere to protect it from evil.

20210419_101624.jpg

Which is your favorite Buddha image?

massage.jpg

I treated myself to a long-overdue massage. It felt so good because I’ve been wanting one for over a year. It only costs $6 for an hour oil massage that was one of the best I’ve ever had. I had hurt my back a bit doing wild slides at the water park so the oil massage was just what I needed to end this lovely rainy day.

20210420_181203.jpg

Thanks for enjoying this rainy Wednesday walk around Luang Prabang with me today. Have a good one!

Amend: The Fight for America

The Union may have won the military victory during the Civil War, but racist southerners won the cultural war. Even after a hundred years since the 14th Amendment became law, many Americans had to fight for their right to be seen as equal by their states and the federal government. Amend: The Fight for America shares the stories of the many Americans who stood for and even died for equality.

Fredrick Douglass

At first, I was thrown off by the actor who was quoting Fredrick Douglass because he looks nothing like him but, then there was Pedro Pascal as Abraham Lincoln and other Hollywood stars quoting people of different ages, sex, and race. Samuel L. Jackson portrayed Martin Luther King Jr. well, but at no point did he say, “I’m sick of these motherfucking racists on this motherfucking continent!”

Fredrick Douglass is remembered as the greatest speaker of the 19th century. He could give a speech to a huge crowd and change their hearts and opinions with his amazing words. He will always be remembered as an early champion for civil rights, but I don’t think most people realize what a bad-ass he was. One day, while his master, who was also most likely his father, was giving young Douglass a beating. He decided then and there that he wasn’t going to take it anymore! While Maryland and his master viewed him as property, he was in fact a free man! He then beat the shit out of his master and told him that if the other slaves found out about it that he would lose face, so they’d both never speak of it again. He ran away and published his book which would only put a huge target on his back for southern slave catchers. He even tried to get a commission as an officer in the Union Army which the president was in favor of, but the army would not allow.

Heavy Weight Champion

How would you feel if you won the belt for the UFC heavyweight, but Dana White told you that you are in fact the champion, but your prize money and belt would actually go to the loser? Well, that’s what happened after the Civil War. The 14th Amendment had passed and slavery was outlawed but terrorist groups like the KKK, racist politicians, and a corrupt Supreme Court made it a worthless gesture. It wasn’t until Martin Luther King Jr. and his brilliant strategy of non-violent disobedience helped to end Jim Crow. If I had a time machine, I’d really love to take Will Smith, the main narrator of the series, and Martin Luther King Jr. back in time to meet Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. They would have a lot to talk about and it would make for the most epic podcast of all time.

Equality for All

This Netflix original series doesn’t just focus on the struggle of black Americans, but all Americans who had to fight for their rights. It begins with the Civil War and leads all the way up to the present day. There are some people, that sadly, I’d never heard of until watching this documentary six-part series. It doesn’t matter what religion, sex, race, or orientation you are because the United States Constitution gives you unalienable rights even if you are NOT a citizen. It’s important that we know our rights and the heroes who gave everything to make our rights a reality. History and Civics teachers will be assigning Amend: The Fight for America to their students as required viewing for many years to come.

3 OFFLINE games you should download

Sometimes I really miss the PSP where you had a good grip, controls, and all games could be played offline. Back then I was the only one entertained with a portable screen because smartphones had not become a thing yet. People would accuse me of being antisocial, a nerd, or a zombie. Now everyone is hunched over staring into screens. Most phones become pretty boring and useless if they lack an internet connection, but if you have these three games, you’ll have something fun to do offline.


Screenshot_20210215125544.jpg

Solitaire is a classic game that should come with every phone as it did in Windows 3.1 in my opinion. Back then, most people had never used a mouse so this game served as basic training for the new input device. Now there is a generation of people who’ve only known iPads and smartphones. I can see the anxiety in their eyes when asked to use a mouse or keyboard for the first time. How many people can type without looking these days? How many skills that we were once proud of have zero use today? I remember being proud of my ability to send text messages on my Nokia without looking while riding my bike or being able to fix TV antennas for better signals. What’s your now worthless skill?

Badlands.jpg

Badland is the only mobile game I can think of that can be played with 4 players on the same screen. The only input necessary is tapping the corner to flap. If you hold your finger down your birds will flap a lot. It’s free on the Google Play Store and 99 cents in Apple’s App Store, but totally worth it. It won Game of the Year, but sadly most people have forgotten about this gem.

Missile Command: Recharged

A re-imagining of the beloved classic with fast-paced, arcade action where players must defend their bases by blasting an endless barrage of missiles hailing from the sky. Launch counter-missiles to protect your base and target powerups to gain an edge at critical moments. Missile Command: Recharged will appeal to those that fondly remember playing the original or its many iterations, and a whole new generation of mobile gamers that are looking for fast-paced, pick-up-and play, arcade goodness.

I like to play this while waiting at the bank for some reason. They don’t like me very much because every time I’m there helping a friend out with their money transfer problems I always say that none of this would be necessary if they had just used Bitcoin and that the whole banking system is about to join the dinosaurs. One of my students is a bank manager and has worked there for thirty years, but had no idea what fractional reserve banking was. People always ask me about this game so they can download and play it too whenever they see how fun and addictive it can be. How many millions of quarters do you think this game earned back in the day?

TOP Post to Earn Social Medias


You may not be able to monetize your YouTube channel right away, but you can use it to advertise and get affiliate clicks or website views for free. You can also use your YouTube videos on decentralized video sharing sites which will reward good content with crypto using some of the sites mentioned below.

leo.png

LeoFinance.io is just the nicest looking and smoothest interface right now in my opinion. It’s been frustrating for me a bit. I’m not a respected or well-known finance guy, so I didn’t earn much LEO, but many of the best minds in the decentralized world post to LeoFinance, and they have a lot of wisdom to share. You will also earn HIVE and other tokens when you post with LeoFinance.

TravelFeed.png

TravelFeed.io is good if you can take good photos and write over 250 words of travel stories and advice without typos, then you can start earning both HIVE and STEEM with TravelFeed right away.

Hive.png
There are many great communities on Hive.Blog I enjoy. I like to draw and play video games so I post mostly about that. You can find many other communities with helpful people from all over the world on Hive.

Peakd.png
While Hive is the blockchain, I mostly post using Peakd.com as the front end and check to see how it looks on Hive later. It seems that English and Spanish are the most common languages. If a quality post didn’t find much traction on Hive, don’t feel bad, because it may find success on a different chain below…

Publish0x.png
Other post to earn sites only allow you to earn in the first seven days and rely on having luck, many followers, and or a high rank to earn anything, but Publish0x.com will continue to pay you as long as people are looking at your post making it a much fairer system for someone new to get in the game.

Steemit.png
The granddaddy of decentralized blockchain run social media is Steemit. A lot of Hive bloggers will cross out the word, Steem because some super-rich whale came along and took over and started censoring posts. It seems just the English speakers were the Steemit.com jumpers because posts in Korean and Chinese are earning the most now.

SplinterTalk.png
How many games have their own social media and token which you can use to buy more NFTs? If you are playing the best play to earn crypto game,

Splinterlands.png

Splinterlands.com, where you earn DEC, a HIVE token, with every victory you can. My students who got into the game early with the $10 starter pack now have decks worth over $1,000 and beat me in battle with ease.

Instagram is convenient because you can make a square-shaped post then instantly share it to Facebook and Twitter saving you time. It is a great way to get your small business advertised in the local area for only a few dollars an ad. There are many superstars on Instagram too. If it were up to me, I’d call it Vanitygram.


Fakebook would not even be on this list if they didn’t make it so easy to make a page for your business and get you found by your customers quickly. I have helped many of my Facebook hating friends to give up on the personal social side and focus one hundred percent on their business page.

Read.Cash hopes to replace Facebook and reward its users with Bitcoin Cash. I’m new to the platform but will see how my top posts from Hive do in the future.

Noise.Cash hopes to be the new decentralized uncensorable Twitter. Good luck with that. Since noise.cash is new, you could get on the train before it becomes a space-train to the moon.
