For Joseph's birthday, final installment of 2017 Year in Review. Sep - Dec

Celebrating Joseph’s birthday by finishing our humorous look at his church today. Like Mormonism itself, the following is a mix of fact, fiction, “speaking as a man” personal opinion, and creative liberties with the truth. And just like Mormonism, I don’t bother to tell you which is which.

September

A new school year begins with the Air Force ROTC program still housed at BYU, despite rumors it would relocate to UVU over BYU’s refusal to grant a non-Mormon officer an honor code exemption to engage in the controversial practice of drinking coffee. The officer pledged to abide by the honor code on BYU property and when representing BYU at official functions, but mistakenly assumed the BYU Taliban would allow him to consume coffee in the privacy of his own home. Addressing the controversy, BYU spokesperson Carri Jenkins stressed this was a safety issue as much as a moral one, reiterating the university’s concern that under the officer’s proposed compromise there was a very real possibility ROTC students could be exposed to potentially lethal doses of coffee breath.
TSCC files a Supreme Court amicus brief in support of a Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. When asked what possible standing the church had in a case involving a non-Mormon business in Colorado, Pres. Newsroom emphatically rejected the implied assumption that the church should limit itself to controlling the lives of its own members and the state of Utah.
TSCC buys the original Book of Mormon printer’s manuscript for $35 million, making the Book of Mormon the highest grossing fiction book of the year.
MormonLeaksTM and the McConkie family get into a legal spat over the release of the McConkie papers but the family backs down after the MormonLeaksTM attorney serves them with legal notice that MormonLeaksTM has trademarked the term "Bruce R. McDonkey".TM
In yet another blow to TBM hard-liners, BYU announces it will begin selling caffeinated Coke on campus. But when pressed for clarification on the new “caffeinated drinks on campus” policy, a flustered Carri Jenkins told the inquisitive ROTC officer to sit down, shut up, slap a smile on his face, and pretend the WoW somehow made sense, perhaps in a parallel universe.

October

General Conference kicks off October with both Monson and Hales taking PTO from their salaried positions when Hales -- expressing the sentiment felt by us all -- dies rather than be forced to watch the Sunday afternoon conference session.
At conference, eternal polygamist Oaks defends marriage as the exclusive union of a man and a woman, shares with members God’s sacred revelatory process — which apparently involves numerous committee meetings, a lengthy editing process, and consultation with legal counsel — and tells LGBT members to quit procrastinating and just be straight already because for the first time in its 180 year history the church is damn well determined to stick to a single doctrine. Meanwhile, in a rebuke to the white supremacy faction within the church, Ballard holds up Jane Manning James as an example of the early church’s progressive acceptance of black members and their divine role as eternal slaves forever. And Tad Callister — in a break from the typically dry conference talks we’ve come to expect — lightens the mood by taking the audience on a fanciful time-travel journey, going back 100 years to a more innocent time before critical analysis of the Book of Mormon was a thing.
Four weeks after conference, TSCC announces that the Priesthood session and Women’s conference will now alternate conferences and be held once each per year. Pres. Newsroom clarified the change was made in accordance with the church’s long-standing policy to make women feel included in church while simultaneously reducing their actual influence within the church, noting that whereas sessions dedicated to women previously accounted for 1/6 of all conference sessions, that would now be reduced to a more acceptable 1/10 of all sessions. Pres. Newsroom added that the most noticeable impact of the change would be an expected 50 percent reduction in talks given using “Primary voice”, after which the rest of his statement was drowned out by an enthusiastic standing ovation from the Salt Lake City religion beat press pool.
Pres. Newsroom announces the church will begin closing missions due to a 20% drop in missionaries serving. The words are scarcely out of his mouth before Larry Lawrence storms the podium, denounces the news as counterfeit, and in a scathing rebuke calls Pres. Newsroom to repentance for doubting Elder Holland’s prophesy of 100,000 missionaries serving in the field by 2019. Lawrence announces the church will instead be opening dozens of new missions, including the Northeast Draper mission, the City Creek mission, and the Lavell Edwards Stadium mission, a unique special-purpose mission which had already begun desperately issuing calls to Mormon young men of a specific physique.

November

TSCC seeks to up its internet cred by engaging in its first-ever trolling attempt when it trolls MormonLeaksTM by itself leaking the top secret Handbook 1 of the Church Handbook of Instructions. While many initially assumed the leak was accidental, Pres. Newsroom left no room for doubt when he announced the church had also trademarked the term "Ryan McBite Me.”TM
A steady stream of politicians, movie stars, businessmen, athletes and celebrities are accused of abusing positions of power to engage in widespread sexual abuse, including a political candidate accused of engaging in sexual contact with a 14 year old girl while he was in his thirties. Commenting on the scandal, Pres. Newsroom noted with a touch of pride in his voice that the church was 180 years ahead of the trend rather than its customary 100 years behind.
At a youth Face2Face, Ballard astonishingly claims the church has always been fully transparent about its history. To prove the point, Ballard pointed to an obscure footnote buried in a densely-worded 1968 Hugh Nibley article which vaguely referenced "different wording" used to describe the first vision. The article, published in a Greek language membership-only professional journal with a peak circulation of 583, is not available in reprints or digital format and the professional organization which published it has lamentably ceased to exist. Nevertheless, your TBM brother-in-law still texted you to say "PROOF the church HASN'T HIDDEN ANYTHING!!!! Now QUIT your anti b.s. cuz i'm SICK OF IT!!!!!!"
MormonLeaksTM releases internal BYU admissions documents, including a scoring system that awards applicants more points for being male than for completing a full year of seminary. In other words, a girl faithfully participating in 180 hours of Mormon religious instruction is still worth less to BYU than some dude showing up with a penis.

December

The First Presidency Christmas devotional takes an unusual turn when Elder Holland begins to regale children with the true story of how he flew with Santa one Christmas Eve to deliver gifts to children who believed in Jesus and whose parents were not gay. With conviction on his face, Holland emphatically pounded the pulpit, defying anyone to deny the miracles he had witnessed that night. Shockingly, a haggard-looking Larry Lawrence emerged from stage right, shoved Holland aside, and angrily denounced Santa Claus as a counterfeit god who leads children away from worshiping Jesus, the one true God of Christmas. Lawrence pounded the pulpit and condemned to Hell any child who so much as hung a stocking by the chimney with care. A visibly upset Holland elbowed Lawrence aside, called him a taffy swallower, and with tears in his eyes began to bear testimony of the truthfulness of his story when the mic was cut, Church security appeared, tasered them both, and wrestled them off the stage. Thick tension hung in the Conference Center until Uchtdorf took the podium, cracked an aviation joke, and smiled broadly at the audience for a good five minutes. Then all was quickly forgotten and everything was right again in the world.
9,000 people sign u/Invisibles_Cubit's petition calling for an end to LDS bishops questioning teens about masturbation and other sexual behavior in private, closed-door interviews. But this total is quickly dwarfed when a counter-petition is signed by all 30,000 bishops in the church. "Serving as bishop is a time-demanding volunteer calling with heavy responsibilities and no compensation," the counter-petition reads. "It is therefore extremely unfair to revoke one of the few perks of the position."
A week before Christmas u/NewNameNoah gives the world the gift of spiritual enlightenment when he posts the temple endowment video on YouTube. Despite God’s blockbuster movie clearly spelling out the need for signs and tokens, TBMs remain mystified the market for signs and tokens hasn’t Bitcoined through the roof. Meanwhile, as a result of the video going public, TSCC unexpectedly finds itself the subject of a plagiarism lawsuit brought by film producers who claim four older men surrounding a naive naked woman in a garden is simply too similar to their "Outdoor Teen Virgin Bukkake" video to be coincidental.
In what is sure to retroactively be classified as a “revelation", TSCC changes its temple policy to give young men the opportunity to bring salvation to souls in the afterlife by witnessing and performing baptisms for the dead and the opportunity for young women to pass out towels to their peers. Stunned observers immediately decried the disparity in service assignments available to young men and young women, but ironically, passing out towels to wet, shivering youth is the only actual act of service performed in a temple.
In a heartwarming Christmas message, Pres. Monson wishes members a Merry Christmas and reflects with gratitude on his many blessings this holiday season, chief among them that the rampant rumors of his death on exmormon were as accurate as the average FairMormon article.
And as 2017 draws to a close, let us gather our loved ones together as we contemplate what truly matters this holiday season; namely, that MormonLeaksTM has trademarked the term “Complete Genital Involvement.”TM
Happy new year, exmos.

Who framed Vitalik Buterin?

Vitalik Buterin has lately been the talk of the town. The only one, who is even more famous that he is — Satoshi Nakamoto.The blockchain genius, ex-teen prodigy programmer (he grew up...) and the current crypto action hero, the creator of Ethereum, a 23-year-old skinny millennial with dual citizenship (Canada and Russia), who is a resident of Singapore for the time being.
Vitalik was born in Kolomna, Russia on the 31st of January 1994, and in 1999 his parents moved to Canada. They did not leave him behind ofc. :D His digital acumen was shown first in Russia: Dmitry Buterin — his father — told that his son was toying with Excel spreadsheets at the tender age of 4 instead of watching Sesame Street. At the age of seven Vitalik had an imaginary universe inhabited by bunnies, which was governed by very strict formulas. His early life was filled with math, charts and calculations. Ten year old boy could code in C++ — he was a classic nerd of the early noughties...
Even though he was a quiet boy you would not put him for a model child for those mums and dads who wedge their kids into colleges. Fresher Vitalik dropped out of University of Waterloo to completely devote himself to Blockchain. For starters, he went from Canada to Israel and then to Amsterdam and San Francisco. Then there was Switzerland with the Canton of Zug, where, in the world-renowned Crypto Valley, the world-famous Ethereum Foundation headquarters is now based.
To date, the young dropout is an example of a remarkable career — he became involved with Blockchain and Bitcoin in 2011, and in 2017 he got the 10th place in Fortune magazine's 40 Under 40 and was highlighted in Forbes magazine's list of successful businessmen under 30. He is fluent not only in Russian, English, German, but also in the Chinese language, which comes in handy during his business trips to China. The doors of the most influential people are always wide open for him — from Bank Directors to Presidents. Influential people all around the world treat him with respect and heed his advice!
At the end of September 2017 Vitalik said that Blockchain technology will wrest a significant market share from payment systems (Visa, PayPal, Mastercard, etc.) and similar financial institutions in the very near future. According to Vitalik the majority of cryptocurrency community is busy making Blockchain technology even more secure. At the moment engineering part of applications is quite vulnerable — hence impaired distribution in the Network. Let us not forget about the occasions when hackers got away with loads of crypto, e.g. DAO attack.
Landscape of the international financial market will radically change as soon as programmers and cryptographers eliminate security issues. Many of us remember that on the 25th of June 2017 there was a deafening buzz about an unexpected death of Vitalik. It happen completely out of blue — some overzealous rogue actors from 4chan (who thought they could stoop so low ;D) even hurried to Wikipedia to edit his article: “Buterin was a Russian-Canadian programmer", etc. That hoax brought down Ethereum by 14.5%.
And only Vitalik's tweet, where he posed with the last ether transaction, pacified the international community — Ethereum rate stabilized and actually ascended the new all-time peak in November, 2017. But… that is beyond the point.
One might muse who would benefit from Vitalik's death... I guess the Eight Families or the owners of payment systems, starting with VISA as the most influential one... Who else might feel that programmer prodigy has crossed their path? Numerous ICO scammers — he repeatedly spoke against numerous ICOs and stated that only 10% of them are legit. As Vitalik rightfully esteems a great deal of ICOs and ITOs are the breeding pools for scammers. So the people who produce scam ICO and HYIP-projects might "hodl" a grudge against him! He called Bitconnecta Ponzi scheme...
As for personal motives for Vitalik's murder... they are truly tough to uncover! In my opinion he is as harmless as the day is long and would not hurt a fly. In fact, what do we know about the private life of one the most famous 23-year-old programmer boys in the world? The web search engines cannot find any information on his mother. And we only know that his father is a programmer and has recently founded a Blockgeeks Lab blockchain startup.
A-a-and there is no information about his girlfriend or fiancée. That is, neither Vitalik disclosed any information about his marital arrangements, nor any lady has made a startler... Capital magazine's journalist asked a blunt question and got this response: "I think I'd rather pass on my ideas than my genetic material. If my blog is read by 10,000 people you could say that I have 10,000 children.” So a jealousy-fueled murder is probably a long shot!
In the pictures we always see him with his bros. One might wonder if that is just a bromance not something with the rainbow colours...
We also know that he is a green tea drinker. So, apparently, we are unlikely to read newsreports about his drunken brawls, which are usual for celebrities of his caliber. I doubt he is or has ever been a member of Abstinence Leagues, I bet he would rather code than inhale, snort, sniff, inject, booze or adulterize!
So I would wish Vitalik longevity and luck in all his endeavours, especially in Akasha — a decentralized social network project, based on Ethereum and IFPS!
