For maximum efficiency, I just sleep in the laundry basket next to the washer. It gets more comfortable as clothes are added and makes the clothes warm for morning wear.

The Better Business Bureau doesn't think too highly of Coinbase, giving it an "F" rating.

BBB Coinbase

Coinbase came to BBB's attention in September 2013. A review of the company’s complaints was completed in March 2021.Based on BBB files this company has a pattern of complaints from consumers who state they are locked out of their accounts, even after providing required information or updates. Consumer’s also state they have difficulty reaching the company.

On January 15, 2021, Coinbase provided a statement on their website, https://blog.coinbase.com/committing-to-better-customer-service-during-this-time-of-heightened-interest-in-the-cryptoeconomy-5dc2637c4fa7,  which addressed the customer service issues.

A letter was sent to the company requesting they address the above issues as well as advise if the changes noted on their website had been implemented and what if any improvements the company is seeing from these changes.

To date, BBB has not received a response.

I'm reminded of one of The Onion's "point-counterpoint" articles from 20 years ago.

Point: "My computer totally hates me!"
Counterpoint: "God, do I hate that bitch!"

I've been stranded overnight at an airport; can't imagine what it would be like to be stranded for eight years.

There's a strange contradiction revealed by the naivete and kindness demonstrated by humanity when faced with the universe. On Earth, humankind can step onto another continent and, without a thought, destroy the kindred civilizations found there through warfare and disease. But when they gaze up at the stars, they turn sentimental and believe that if extraterrestrial intelligences exist, they must be civilizations bound by noble moral constraints, as if cherishing and loving different forms of life are parts of a self-evident universal code of conduct.

the kinetic energy of hydrogen atoms in my body has increased to the point where the nuclear attraction force exceeds the electrostatic repulsion force, thus converting me very briefly and spectacularly into a source of helium and copious amounts of energy.
