And I thought I had a shitty morning at the office today... what a horrible way to start your day. Even after they clear the threat, I don’t think I would be able to go back inside and work as if nothing had happened.

I don’t really have much to say about crytocurrencies, as I don’t have any stake on any of them, but it kinda sucks that this is an actual practical use for them.
