So here’s an idea

When you see a new NFT on Twitter, reply to the tweet saying ‘does anyone know where i can get this on a tshirt?’

Let the bots right-click it for you.

Fictional time-travel murder 

"First thing I did was go back in time and kill ... oh I forget his name, what was it"

"Who?"

but the sales pitch for it, more broadly, outside of the narrow NFT exploitation world, is that it's ~decentralized computation~

that's why this entire web3 smart contract NFT ICO bullshit hypetrain is so utterly revolting

it is pure money money money

that's also why it's so easily turning into a cult: it's able to offer the promise of community, praise, and, importantly, financial support, to folx who are historically typically rather poor: artists, musicians, etc
