And just like that,​ everything changed.

So I have been this serial entrepreneur for a really long time and over the years I have learned a lot. More recently though I have been thinking and come to realize that what I want to do is not on the internet at all. I mean, I use the internet to promote what I have going on, but what do I have going on really? My Instagram is about me being a Bearded Villain. My facebook is a mixture of a bunch of bullshit. My LinkedIn exits, as does my twitter but I don’t really maintain either…hell my Tumblr is the same way. Here is the thing, I post to these things to let you know I am working on something. I feel like I am trying to stay relevant in your eyes, relevance does not make me money nor does it make me happy. For the life of me, I am wondering why in the fuck I am on social media at all. It is not my job but I sure as hell have made it one. I only have Facebook to keep up with my kids (all grown now) who do not talk to me for one reason or another. I look at pretty girls from time to time and I am a car and music buff. I have come to a point in my journey that I feel like none of that shit is important to me and keeping me from reaching my goals. Don’t get me wrong, I think social media is great. But for me, it has replaced the television. The first thing I do in the morning is to grab my phone and head for the bathroom to shit, shower, shave, and check my email, stocks, crypto, and social got damn media. In that order.

What do I do to get that time back? Not a got damn thing it’s gone and I cannot – now going forward I am going to have to manage the time I spend on the internet a lot closer and so that got me to thinking about the businesses I have online. I find myself working on them and then sliding over to social media. If I paid as much attention to businesses as I do my social media they would probably be doing way better than they are now. Speaking of other businesses I have made the decision to shut down my t-shirt business and magazine and popup barbershop. A lot of things I do now do not allow me to continue to put the kind of time I need to put into these other businesses I have and I have not built them out where I could add a team of people to work it for me. That could still happen, I am just not promoting and marketing them at the moment. Maybe down the line, I will.

Right now there needs to be a mathematical plan where A and B help C and D make E in a massive way.

Stay tuned I am just airing out my thoughts. Watch what comes next. Today it’s about rebalancing my focus.

The trend is your friend

So I got turned on to this cryptocurrency that I used to buy 2 Harley Davidson motorcycles. I got into this last October and thought nothing of it. I didn’t get it so I just held onto it and thought I would take my time and figure this out. I am fully aware that crypto is here to stay and will be a normal way we spend/use money.

To tell you what I know about TROPTIONS.

TROPTIONS (a peer to peer electronic trading system) started as a barter company about 15/16 years ago. TROPTIONS has acquired over $200M in Gold and an assignment. By buying the motorcycles are proof of use, but TROPTIONS has well over $10B in assets. You can buy real assets. TROPTIONS is on the Bitcoin Blockchain, the oldest and most stable blockchain there is.

I talk to people about TROPTIONS often, most look at me strangely because they don’t know what it is or they simply don’t understand what I am talking about. I can only talk about what I know, in my world. Some get it and some don’t and then there are some that just want to seem like they are in the know and say thing s that are way off the mark, I entertain it and then kindly make sense of what they just totally destroyed.

TROPTIONS does about $4B a month in business. This isn’t a plug for this crypto, I just wanted to let you know my reasons for holding this currency. It is working and I love it. Hell, TROPTIONS has been around about 4/5 years before Bitcoin.  I got my first 2 coins when the coin was at $134 per coin. Then it went through a rebalance, that was interesting. Currently, I have over 80,000 XTroptions.gold coins and the rate is at $9.50+/-. It has to get back to the rate it was before the rebalance which was $182…  I had more but I have given some of my friends and kids some to do with as they wish. I believe in looking down the road about 5 to 10 years.

My experience with TROPTIONS has been an amazing one, I use this and Bitcoin and Litecoin. This is not a review.

ANALEMMA TOWER

Analemma inverts the traditional diagram of an earth-based foundation, instead of depending on a space-based supporting foundation from which the tower is suspended. This system is referred to as the Universal Orbital Support System (UOSS). By placing a large asteroid into orbit over earth, a high strength cable can be lowered towards the surface of the earth from which a super tall tower can be suspended. Since this new tower typology is suspended in the air, it can be constructed anywhere in the world and transported to its final location. The proposal calls for Analemma to be constructed over Dubai, which has proven to be a specialist in tall building construction at one fifth the cost of New York City construction.


Orbital mechanics for Analemma: geosynchronous orbit matches earth’s sidereal rotation period of one day. The tower’s position in the sky traces out a path in a figure-8 form, returning the tower to exactly the same position in the sky each day. Ground trace annotated with 24-hour segments corresponding to the towers position over a specific geographic feature

Unrolled Orbital Path: Chart showing a typical daily cycle for an inhabitant of Analemma. Business is conducted at the lower end of the tower (F) while sleeping quarters are approximately 2/3 of the way up. Devotional activities are scattered along the highest reaches (A, B, D), while surface transfer points (G) take advantage of high topography. The size and shape of windows changes with height to account for pressure and temperature differentials. The amount of daylight increases by 40 minutes at the top of the tower due to the curvature of the earth

Manipulating asteroids is no longer relegated to science fiction. In 2015 the European Space Agency sparked a new round of investment in asteroid mining concerns by proving with its Rosetta mission that it’s possible to rendezvous and land on a spinning comet. NASA has scheduled an asteroid retrieval mission for 2021 which aims to prove the feasibility of capturing and relocating an asteroid.

Analemma can be placed in an eccentric geosynchronous orbit which would allow it to travel between the northern and southern hemispheres on a daily loop. The ground trace for this pendulum tower would be a figure eight, where the tower would move at its slowest speed at the top and bottom of the figure eight allowing the possibility for the tower’s occupants to interface with the planet’s surface at these points. The proposed orbit is calibrated so the slowest part of the towers trajectory occurs over New York City.

Analemma would get its power from space-based solar panels. Installed above the dense and diffuse atmosphere, these panels would have constant exposure to sunlight, with greater efficiency than conventional PV installations. Water would be filtered and recycled in a semi-closed loop system, replenished with condensate captured from clouds and rainwater. Developments in cable-less electromagnetic elevators have effectively shattered height restrictions imposed by elevator cable spool volume.

While researching atmospheric conditions for this project, we realized that there is probably a tangible height limit beyond which people would not tolerate living due to the extreme conditions. For example, while there may be a benefit to having 45 extra minutes of daylight at an elevation of 32,000 meters, the near vacuum and -40C temperature would prevent people from going outside without a protective suit. Then again, astronauts have continually occupied the space station for decades, so perhaps it’s not so bad?

Analemma Tower is a proposal for the world’s tallest building ever. Harnessing the power of planetary design thinking, it taps into the desire for extreme height, seclusion, and constant mobility. If the recent boom in residential towers proves that sales price per square foot rises with floor elevation, then Analemma Tower will command record prices, justifying its high cost of construction.
