10. 'How to get boogie down emote'

I don't get Fortnite, but those teens do! I've seen the popular dance moves that this "boogie down emote" thing generated...but I still don't get it. Here's an hours worth of boogi-ing down... :)

"bitcoin has become a hot commodity among speculators"

Go get a ticket at a gas station?

I have no clue what Ripple is and when I just googled it, I got even more confused. It must be something you can invest in. If you want more info on it here

Again...go buy a ticket at a gas station?
