The Tails system is eternally offline and it is never connected to anything, hostile or not.
I wouldn't bet, that plugging in a HW wallet into a hostile machine is a good idea. There are many attacks that you're still susceptible to. For example switching the recipient address in memory to the attackers. Or even more covert, changing the unsigned transaction, so that the change output gets sent to the attacker. All you see on the device is, that you're sending the right amount to the right address. But what you don't see, is that the change, which might be the bulk of your balance, goes to the attacker. Idk if current HW wallets with current firmware are still vulnerable to this, though.

I tried to find a way to buy bitcoin in Canada using a Visa/MC Gift card, apparently that is "impossible". So I'm willing to buy using e-transfer, but I'm afraid the sites I buy from can connect it to me. Is that so? And no I'm not buying anything illegal (see comment for details)...

Usually I use a gift card credit card for these things but it's more expensive....so I'm going to be completely honest with what I like to buy (you can laugh all you want).
1) First is Chaturbate Tokens. You get the most "bang for your buck" by using bitcoin and that's the first thing I want to buy. It's my vice, I know I'm a loser but whatever, I enjoy it. 2) Phone verification. Sometimes I will send someone $2.50 or something (either on reddit or elsewhere) on paypal to verify a phone number account for something like discord. I don't want my real number on discord or other services other than the big 5 (Google/Microsoft/eBay/Amazon/Facebook). I don't trust the "smaller" guys and a lot of these random services want phone numbers, so I use services on reddit to do that.
So my questions are;
1) I can definitely not buy using a Visa or MC gift card, right? 2) Assuming I buy using e-transfer, what is the best site? And will they require government ID or can I just send from my real bank account?
For #2, I don't really care about them knowing my name/address, but I don't want a random bitcoin site having government documents with them. If it was RBC or CIBC I wouldn't care, but these random exchanges I dont trust yet.

Is bitcoin really un-tethered? this paper looks at the btc / tether connection; it examines if tether is not back by dollars and is printed to pump prices mainly btc

here is the paper, its quite long but a good read. below ive added some quotes. If you read this paper it will likely just confirm want most who have been in this space for a while think about tether, its centralised with no accountability and is likely not backed 1:1 and is likely an instrument to pump / manipulate prices most noteably bitcoin.
Is Bitcoin Really un-tethered?
some snippets from the paper:
flow of tether between exchanges, the main players:
Figure 1 plots the aggregate flow of Tether among major market participants on the Tether blockchain from its conception in October 6, 2014 until March 31, 2018. The size of the nodes is proportional to the sum of coin inflow and outflow to each node, the thickness of the lines is proportional to the size of flows, and all flow movements are clockwise. Tether is authorized, moved to Bitfinex, and then slowly distributed to other Tether-based exchanges, mainly Poloniex and Bittrex. The graph shows that almost no Tether returns to the Tether issuer to be redeemed, and the major exchange where Tether can be exchanged for USD, Kraken, accounts for only a small proportion of transactions. Tether also flows out to other exchanges and entities and becomes more widespread over time as a medium of exchange.
A similar analysis of the flow of coins on the much larger Bitcoin blockchain shows that the three main Tether exchanges for most of 2017 (Bitfinex, Poloniex, and Bittrex) also facilitate considerable cross-exchange Bitcoin flows among themselves.6 Additionally, we find that the cross-exchange Bitcoin flows on Bitcoin blockchain closely matches the Tether flows on Tether blockchain.
a large player is likely responsiblle for a lot of this:
we find that one large player is associated with more than half of the exchange of Tether for Bitcoin at Bitfinex, suggesting that the distribution of Tether into the market is from a large player and not many different investors bringing cash to Bitfinex to purchase Tether
people who worked on the inside even admit tether isnt backed 1:1
in response to legal motions, on April 30, 2019, Bitfinex’s former General Counsel admitted that Tether does not have cash reserves equal to 100% of the outstanding Tethers. In a May 15, 2019 court hearing, a Bitfinex attorney also admitted that Tether did invest in instruments beyond cash, including Bitcoin, something clearly at odds with Tether’s longstanding claims.

The time-stamp on a Bitcoin Block is not very accurate. Is it possible to find the network-adjusted time (median time-stamp of connected nodes) for each block?

Blocks have UNIX time-stamps determined by the miner. It needs to be greater than the median timestamp of previous 11 blocks and less than network-adjusted time (median time-stamp of nodes) plus 2 hours. This means block times are only accurate within 2 hours.
Is it possible to find the network-adjusted time (median time-stamp of connected nodes) for each block? Or is there another more reliable time-stamp for each block? Any advice appreciated :-)

I really like this picture for Bitcoin. I think we should all try to circulate it more because it emphasizes the "connected" and "network" aspect of Bitcoin. I'm sick of seeing pictures of physical metal coins associated with Bitcoins. Bitcoin is a network- Not a coin.

Malware warning: Bitcoin.com wallet needs a network connection for generating new keys. This should not be the case! Possibly this wallet is going to steal your bitcoins.

https://np.reddit.com/btc/comments/7jt1tp/i_am_searching_for_an_android_bitcoin_cash_wallet/dr8ybxy
Roger Ver alias memorydealers who owns and operates bitcoin.com does not explain why this wallet behaves this way.
Anyway, there is no reason! If a wallet cannot generate a private key due to missing network connection, it is either due to malware or due to incapable developers. Both is bad for a Bitcoin wallet, so stay away!

You would want to get your own wallet, through ledger or an online wallet that is not connected with all of your information, from there you’d want to send your BTC from the new wallet to a tumbling service then to the vendor. Even then there is still a bit of a trail leading back to your name but that’s the only way I know of keeping it anonymous. Besides or you could buy XMR and use XMR.to to make your btc payment anonymous.

The number one thing Bitcoin needs is a way to connect people who want to trade Bitcoin for other things. NOT an exchange, but some kind of social identity where people who already know one another personally can identify one another. We need true peer-to-peer trading.

We've fallen into old bad habits, looking to exchanges, escrow, multisig whatchamacallits, and even government control, to make us feel "safe" and provide the convenience of the old fashioned banking system. It's the laziness, ignorance, and lack of creativity that we've been brainwashed with by the antiquated banks and their buddies. "You need us!" they say. "You can't trust other people!" they declare. "We'll take care of you!" they promise.
But it's not good for us or for Bitcoin.
Bitcoin was made for true peer-to-peer trading: me to you, directly. Not through some middleman like Bisq, or the many for-profit exchanges, or gift card apps or whatever.
We need to have a way to connect to our friends, family, neighbors, and online communities that we already have in ways that let everyone know we're happy to send and receive Bitcoin in return for other things.
Something like little badges or tags that say "Bitcoin happily used here!" on our profile pages and signatures and such.
Ideas?
