  1. your opinion

    The stiletto heel boot calf seems too wide
  2. Can Christian Louboutin patent red soles?

    According to the articles I've googled up, Louis XIV made red heels a privilege for the monarchy and their friends. Heels only, it's unclear what color their soles were. http://www.thefashionhistorian.com/2010/11/red-heels.html https://www.forbes.com/pictures/emjl45ghf/louis-xiv-of-france-posing-in-red-heeled-shoes/#6c091a097a02 But traditionally in fashion, features can't really be patented. A new design trend like peplum skirts or shoulder pads can be copied by anyone else. It's more like you can patent a logo like Nike's swoosh, or Louis Vuitton, or Tommy Hilfiger's logos. Allowing patents on color or color scheme would be like saying Body Glove could patent day glo green or yellow and black swimwear.
  3. Very cool story! And some nice heels there. They look like they're actually into riding, as opposed to the usual "bike hos" that I see in photos. I'm not familiar with how to operate a motorcycle. So there isn't anything to do with your feet other than use them as kickstands when stopped? Is there usually some leg rest where you can hook your heels?
  4. Wow, back to USD10,000. The 3rd largest bitcoin wallet bought close to $400 million more between Feb 6th and 9th at an average of about $8,400. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/anonymous-trader-buys-400-million-of-bitcoin-2018-02-16 I have no idea what that means in terms of the future.

    This might be late, but it would help to tell us what size they are. And post some pictures.
  6. Can Christian Louboutin patent red soles?

    I think CL has a good case for patenting that shade of red on their soles. I had never heard of such a thing before they started doing it. Unless someone can show "prior art" i.e. somebody else put red soles on high heeled shoes, then they should be allowed to say that this is their trademark.
  7. EU Court of Justice says no. US Federal Appeals Court said yes. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/06/business/christian-louboutin-shoes-red-trademark.html
  8. Pony Hoof Boots

    Here is a nice directory of retailers of heel-less pony hoof boots, as intended for human pony play https://www.cpony.com/home/links/hoofboots.html
  9. One more use of crypto/Bitcoin's regulation-bypassing qualities is bypassing credit card (VISA/MC) censorship of adult content/art/porn. I'm surprised nobody's done that yet. The censorship has been awful. Bloomberg has an article on it. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-02-07/sex-businesses-are-finding-willing-partners-in-cryptocurrencies
  10. What does legwear mean in this case? Trousers, leggings, socks, legwarmers, and/or hosiery? edit: Apparently it means hosiery, tights, nylons, etc. Tight lower body wear.
  11. @ZedMaybe they're still in your computer's "Recycle Bin"?
  12. (post self deleted) If I can't say something nice, I shouldn't say it at all. @kneehighsI hope your investment capital and of course your person are both safe and sound.
  13. A bunch of crypto-millionaires/billionaires are planning their Crypto Utopia in Puerto Rico. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/02/technology/cryptocurrency-puerto-rico.html
  14. Hmm, they look kinda like high heel ankle boot versions of Allbirds wool sneakers http://www.allbirds.com which is a total SF tech hipster trend.
  15. I doubt that BTC will fall all the way to zero, as the economist in the Guardian article predicts. As I said before, it does have value as the most widely accepted means of exchange for those who wish to bypass their governments' regulations and economic controls, whether that means buying drugs and other illegal goods and services, or moving wealth out of a tightly regulated financial system *coughChinacough* And that's a valuable quality to those who need it. BTC's true value will eventually be determined by the value of those markets, which is no small sum. Its value will continue to change: For example, if China manages to clamp down on every single fraction of a BTC held by its citizens, then that segment of the market disappears and the overall value of the market goes down. But in my example, the market still has value because others still have need for BTC such as electronic black markets (e.g. Silk Road's legion of successors) and Venezuelan food buyers and others I can't think of. And the market's size could increase with unexpected events, let's say the United States' democracy fails and it becomes a fascist dictatorship, then the oppressed segment of its citizens may want to join the market for BTC to move their wealth out of the country along with their persons. So it's not falling to zero in the forseeable future, although I have no idea where it will end up after the casual speculators leave the bitcoin/crypto markets.
