UFOs, Twitter Coins, Nord Stream Pipeline, ChatGPT, Crypto Crackdown, Memes & The Latest News
I’m excited to launch a new ItsALLRisky Wednesday news digest. The goal is to give readers a summary of the most interesting stories from the last week. Some will hew close to Dogecoin, others will venture further afield. If you’ve been a reader of the newsletter, you should recognize a lot of the topics: crypto, global finance, Twitter, Elon, Tesla, AI, and other quirky events.
I’m going to keep the news digest free to all readers for the first 48 hours after publication for now. On Friday morning a paywall will go up, at which point it’ll be visible to subscribers only. Thanks to all subscribers for supporting this work!
This week, I cover High-Altitude Objects, Twitter Coins, the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline, ChatGPT, and the government’s recent crypto crackdown. Don’t miss Dogey Treats and Memes of the Week at the end. Enjoy!
Two weeks ago, a Chinese Spy Balloon traversed the continental US. When the balloon was shot down over Myrtle Beech on February 4th, the episode seemed to have come to an end.
As it happened, though, it was just beginning.
On Friday, February 10th, the US military shot down a “high-altitude object” over Alaskan airspace, according to White House National Security Spokesperson John Kirby. The object, Kirby said, “was flying at an altitude of 40,000 feet and posed a reasonable threat to the safety of civilian flight."
The next day, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau tweeted that an object was shot down after entering Canadian airspace. Airspace over Montana was also restricted Saturday night due to reports of radar anomalies.
Then, on Sunday, another object was shot down over Lake Huron, Michigan, near the US-Canadian border, causing airspace to be closed again and bringing the total number of encounters to four. The Lake Huron object was described as an unmanned “octagonal structure” with “potential surveillance capabilities“ and attached strings.
Not to be outdone, Chinese authorities reported on Sunday they were preparing to shoot down an unidentified object over the Yellow Sea. There have also been reports of flying objects over Central and South America in recent days.
