Watch The Daily Show offer unhelpful advice to Bitcoin

Comedy Central

On Thursday night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart offered his advice to busted Bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox and other businesses getting into the unregulated world of virtual currencies: Go big or go home. By "big," he meant Wall Street–sized, noting the awesome power of banks like Credit Suisse and Goldman Sachs, the latter of which owns a huge stockpile of yellowcake uranium ("Oh my god! Goldman Sachs is going to have a nuclear weapon before Iran!").

"Once you get in and make yourself a cornerstone of the financial marketplace, there is no limit to what you may accomplish/perpetrate," Stewart said. You've got a long way to go, Bitcoin. --Peter Weber
