Luckily Buehler didn't know anything. He in fact believed in his own sales

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the unsettling discovery is that mass-derp can continue far longer than the example under consideration. e.g., 'crypto ag' still exists, multi-$b, 'unknown' ownership, and... multi-decade loyal customers.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform funny you should mention crypto ag
