Father Robert Ballecer has a long history of misdeeds. Some examples:
- Accepting bribes for positive reviews
- Manufacturing stories about persecution
- Explaining sick fetish definitions to the live stream
- Admitting felonies — if they also aren’t lies
- And many more
In the video above from his hosting of Security Now, Father Robert Ballecer tells another self-disproving whopper.
In an attempt to one-up Steve Gibson, he claims he “had left [a Xeon server he supposedly was reviewing] running for maybe six or seven hours, and it had ‘found’ five bitcoins.”
Five bitcoins has never even been close to an actual block reward. Of course, the fake priest Robert Ballecer doesn’t know this and couldn’t lie well in real-time.
Right now, the reward is 12.5 bitcoins and this was supposed to be a long time ago — before he started at TWiT — when the reward was still 50 bitcoins.
Steve’s reward of 50 bitcoins makes sense, because it’s probably true.
Father Robert Ballecer’s reward was fabricated on the spot out of thin air, and he doesn’t know anything about Bitcoin, so his lie is self-disproving, our favorite kind of fake priest lies.
What kind of shit does he have on the pope? Serious question.
While editing the video, I noticed he lied again about running SpinRite on his 12 or 16 bay NAS — who knows which? — after one of Steve’s fake testimonials, so I threw it into the video as a bonus lie. Enjoy!
