McDonalds & President Trump


Source: http://themusingsofthebigredcar.com/mcdonalds-president-trump/ McDonalds? Yes. There is nothing like hearty Scottish food, eh? So, it is a cloudy, but brilliantly sunny day in the ATX wherein we consider the eating habits of our President to which the Big Red Car protests: “Fake news!” The Big Red Car does not believe that President Trump actually eats what he is reputed to eat. You be the judge. The MAGA President Trump reported diet: two Big Macs, two Filet-o-Fish, and a chocolate shake. But is it true or a myth? What does President eat at McDonalds, Big Red Car? Dear reader, the President is reported to consume two Big Macs, two Filet-o-Fish, and a chocolate shake. That is a lot of damn food. [Hint: No way a Big Red Car could eat that much even if you lubed it with a chilly quart of 10W40.] McDonalds by the numbers You knew the Big Red Car was not going to leave you hanging. Here’s the nutritional overview. Calories: 2,420 Total fat: 112 grams (172% of recommended daily intake) Total carbs: 257 grams (86% of recommended daily intake) Protein: 98 grams You can go to the McDonalds Nutrition Calendar and do it yourself. Skepticism The Big Red Car is a little skeptical. Here is a picture of Candidate Trump eating French fries with what looks to be a Quarter Pounder with Cheese. OK, who are we going to believe? The press or our lying eyes? Doesn’t this look like a President Donald J Trump eating some Freedom fries, a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, and a diet coke? Where are the Big Macs? The Filet-o-Fish? The chocolate shake? What’s going on here? Fake news? Bottomline it, Big Red Car OK, dear reader, here is some very weak evidence. Somebody ate it, but who? So, there you have it, dear reader. The mystery remains. What does President Trump really eat when he is feasting on good, healthy, robust Scottish food? But, hey what the Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car. Take care of your sweet selves.   Share this:TweetShare on TumblrPrint Related Source: http://themusingsofthebigredcar.com/mcdonalds-president-trump/

The news broke earlier this week that our portfolio company Coinbase has acquired Earn.com. A lot of the press attention was centered around the fact that Earn’s CEO Balaji Srinivasan is becoming Coinbase’s CTO and the backstory about how Earn came out of a pivot from a failed Bitcoin mining company called 21. But an overlooked aspect of this transaction is that Coinbase has acquired a business that is the crypto version of Mechanical Turk or, perhaps, Task Rabbit. Earn.com allows a user to create a profile and earn Bitcoin by doing tasks. The tasks right now are centered around the crypto sector (analyze a white paper, accept an incoming email from a recruiter, etc). But if you squint, you can imagine how this mechanic could be extended to all sorts of other tasks. Brian Armstrong, Coinbase’s founder and CEO, tweeted about this yesterday: It is not enough for all of us to be buying, selling, and holding crypto assets. Earning them is a very important function in the development of an ecosystem. So I am excited to see Coinbase supporting and investing in a business where users can earn crypto assets and my hope is that this becomes something as meaningful as what Amazon has done with Mechanical Turk over the years. https://avc.com/2018/04/earn-com/
