|Nov-21-14|| ||Colonel Mortimer: <john barleycorn:> No It wasn't addressed to you.|
But I agree with most if not all of your responses on that.
|Nov-21-14|| ||Colonel Mortimer: <perfidious: Success and failure are two sides of the same coin, come to poker as a profession. If one cannot or will not accept this postulate, cold reality will be thrust upon them in no uncertain terms.>|
I've found poker to be a truly humbling experience.
I remember when getting into it real fast, raising, shoving, bluffing of course (cash games).
I thought I was really good - I wasn't afraid of putting it all in!
It turned out to be not only the best poker lesson I ever learnt, but it taught me to understand the universe in a different way.
$2,000 well spent.
|Nov-21-14|| ||bugabay: I wonder what denomination Abdel converted from and exactly when????|
|Nov-21-14|| ||Marmot PFL: I skimmed through some poker books once. One had all sorts of tips and stories on winning, then the last chapter said basically, why bother? Spending time on a zero sum, non-productive activity to make some money by gratifying the needs of self-destructive losers. |
Besides that, when I did play I usually lost.
Only money I ever made at it was selling poker books online, some by my old buddy Robert Ciaffone
|Nov-21-14|| ||MissScarlett: He was a liberal before, and he's a liberal now. The Muslim thing is just a silly affectation.|
|Nov-21-14|| ||bugabay: Is he born in the U.S. or an immigrant????|
|Nov-21-14|| ||john barleycorn: <MissScarlett: He was a liberal before, and he's a liberal now. The Muslim thing is just a silly affectation.>|
Take him out to a bavarian style restaurant for a pig knuckle and a beer.

If you had inserted the word poker in that sentence, people with corporate desk jobs would have breathed a sigh of relief.

You guys just can't resist can you..hate loves hate.
|Nov-21-14|| ||Colonel Mortimer: Why is it that people who travel the world are lovers and the ones that stay at home haters?|
|Nov-21-14|| ||Colonel Mortimer: Anything to do with ignorance?|
|Nov-21-14|| ||john barleycorn: <Colonel Mortimer: Why is it that people who travel the world are lovers ...>|
You mean the US forces? Just teasing...
|Nov-21-14|| ||Colonel Mortimer: No good point - that's how they teach geography in the US.|
|Nov-21-14|| ||MissScarlett: I posted a response to your claim that America was 34th ranked in the global life expectancy stakes. Did you miss it or are you simply intending to ignore it?|
|Nov-21-14|| ||Colonel Mortimer: I missed it - regale me.|
|Nov-21-14|| ||Colonel Mortimer: Oh well maybe it wasn't that important.
We could look at lists where the US is no.1 But could invite howls of anti-americanism
|Nov-21-14|| ||ljfyffe: <Miss Scarlett> The liberal/conservative dichotomy once more, ad nauseam; deja vu all over again ...what a simplistic view ; oh, what a wonderful world it must be to live in!|
|Nov-21-14|| ||Colonel Mortimer: Would it be that <Miss Scarlett> likes it 'rough'.|
Rough, after all, is no place for liberals.
|Nov-21-14|| ||Colonel Mortimer: You either live like an animal, red in tooth and claw, or you behave like a liberal.|
Or is that too simplistic a turn on Bush's post 9/11 directive?
|Nov-21-14|| ||ljfyffe: "I'II think of it tomorrow....at Tara." So said Miss Scarlett : Gone With the Wind (and gone with the slaves, one might add).|
|Nov-21-14|| ||MissScarlett: It's like being savaged by two dead sheep.|
|Nov-21-14|| ||Colonel Mortimer: I can't see two dead sheep having too much savaging power.|
Maybe we went to rough on MissScarlett?
|Nov-21-14|| ||Jim Bartle: <bob>, I know you've had trouble finding an appropriate name, and <missscarlet> certainly doesn't fit, being American. I think I've found your perfect name, though: <roderickspode>.|
|Nov-21-14|| ||Colonel Mortimer: Talking about inconsistencies, and most of all absurdities - I have to get back to this..|
<TheFocus> <The Big Guns of the USA!>
<TheFocus: <Mort> Please reassure me that you are not truly that stupid.>
What kind of Native American blurts out <The Big Guns of the USA!> 'greatness' while at the same time lamenting the fate of his native people?
Is the <TheFocus> the Native American equivalent of an 'Uncle Tom' plus tax?
Come over to New Zealand <TheFocus>, my Maori friends would slap you up into a real native in no time.
|Nov-21-14|| ||Colonel Mortimer: Bob hardly trolls these days, but as you say Jim, <roderickspode> might put some vigour into the walking stick.|
