So here's a useful question for the spy guys at their Campus in Virginia: do you know any site that sells catfood for Bitcoin?
To those new readers in Pakistan, let me explain: I have a faithful bunch of spy guys who have followed my blog with a search engine called THE INTELLIGENT from a certain government campus in Virginia. I suggested they remove the obvious "THE INTELLIGENT" from their name . . . and they did . . . (but the IP address remains the same. Duh! Tradecraft!)
So I'm reading more about the Silk Road, for one of my murder mysteries I'm writing (The Brownsville Girl, with Spy Guys as players) - and I stumble across the world of BITCOINS, and it's fascinating. I just can't wrap my head around it yet:
But it seems. . . maybe. . . there's a way, like with Amazon, to order stuff and have it delivered. . . without going through the traditional world of the banking system. There are even links to "dark sites" where you can open offshore anonymous accounts with anonymous number-only debit cards, high cash loads, and anonymous bank transfers, using bitcoin, that don't go through any banking system at all.
Now the issue is --- maybe you spy guys know -- is there a site that accepts BITCOIN as currency to buy stuff like CATFOOD and KITTY LITTER, which I order from Amazon (because the UPS guy has to schlep it up three flights of stairs to my apartment, and if I buy it across the street at the Pet Store it's me that has to schlep).
So its a lovely misty-grey Sunday morning in Brooklyn, the government is shut down, I was watching the news re the perfect rendering of Anas Al Liby - well done, spy guys! - and then saw Ted Cruz on CNN, and I started wondering if he uses KIWI boot black to dye his hair. Now if you are listening to any government official, no matter how smart or dumb, and you get fixated on his hair, wondering if it's shoe-polish black. . . nothing they say can be taken seriously.
So I get to work writing on THE BROWNSVILLE GIRL, (spent the last two days revising FAT HAWAIIAN DETECTIVE) and because I was inspired by BITCOIN and AL LIBI CAPTURE, I wrote a little anarchy, spy guys, and am adding Bitcoin this morning -- all while George Kahamoku Jr. and Buffalo Norton are playing.
Spy Guys will get this Monday a.m. (they only read on government time, first thing in the morning, and evidently they're NOT on furlough!) -- so go to this link, peoples, either today, or Monday (those of you who are unfurloughed and read the blog on Company Time) -- relax, and chill. It's all good.
And now I'm thinkin' it's time for Sunday morning spam and rice.
