    Bauer 3D Skate Lab

    Many thanks @mojo122 According to the site, the Five Hole in Raleigh, NC has a 3D Skate Lab. They don't mention it on their site but it isn't out of the ordinary for their site to be about a year behind reality. @Wolfpack_1986 do you know if they've got a Lab? I don't need skates, but I'd like to see the tech in action the next time I'm down that way.

    Bitcoin

    Bitcoin just doesn't have the infrastructure yet for easy currency trading. It's way easier to trade the big currency pairs using Oanda or a similar platform. And yep, margin accounts are basically just leveraged/loan accounts. For example I'm long GBP/USD because everyone thought that the UK was going to go to hell in a handbasket due to Brexit, which I think (and so far history is backing me up) is manure. I'm long 10,000 units, but I've only got 1000 USD on deposit with the broker so in essence the broker has loaned me a little over 9000 USD. Calls kick in basically when your trade starts going against you. For example if the GBP went in the crapper, the broker would require me to put more money on deposit in order to keep my position or they will liquidate the position and any losses would be covered by me. Out of curiosity why do you think betting against the economy is a safe bet? I don't necessarily disagree with you, but I'm interested to hear why you think that is the case.

    Bitcoin

    I bought some in 2013 when it dropped down into the 70 handle. Sold multiple chunks all at over 1000 per. The reasoning for the drop when I bought was purely emotional driven, not based on fundamentals. I always trade contrary to mass emotions, and this seemed like classic case of that. Too rich for my blood to trade now because (unless things have changed) you can't do margin accounts in BTC. Cheers!

    RIP MSH Chat

    I love and miss MSH Chat already! The only minor gripe I had with the previous chat is that at some point the message scrolling got a bit broken.

    55 Flex- Improves skate flex

    Grain of salt, because I'm not that tough on skates due to not being good. Had mine since June and play one game of D level beer league a week with a sprinkling of stick and puck sessions. So far they are holding up great. I don't see or feel any noticeable signs of breakdown at all.

    Warrior Refused Legit Stick Warranty

    Definitely no need for ire towards Warrior here. The recourse is to take the store to small claims court. The stick was bought in good faith that it was through legitimate channels (that is the store's responsibility). There was no reason for the customer to think that things weren't legit. Unless the store expressly said that the stick had no warranty before you bought it, they are on the hook. It'll be a pain to go through the process, but you'll win. And the store will get the message loud and clear and at the very least start doing their due diligence.

    Best cage for an Easton E400?

    I've been using a Bauer RE-AKT cage for going on a year now and highly recommend it.

    How I am doing so far?

    If the helmet didn't come with a cage, I'd suggest picking one up. Cheers!

    8th Annual MSH SummerJam - Boston, MA

    Thanks to JR and company for another phenomenal Summer Jam event. Had a blast, and everyone involved is a class act. Thanks to all of the vendors that were in attendance. Really, really liked the Warrior QRL stick. Despite being too stiff for me (85), I also liked the True 6.0 SBP stick that i demoed. Thanks to Gooner for the grill skills. Thanks to my room mate Brandon for being able to somehow cope with my snoring. Thanks to Tommy for the OTM tour and for hooking me up with a ride to the airport. Thanks to the Gray team for tolerating my lack of skill. Whale of a time as usual. Always look forward to it!

    Total Hockey Files Bankruptcy

    Nah, it goes about it's business and then comes back at a time that is convenient and makes logistical sense.
