Eager to hear Haralabos Voulgaris reply to this. Also, Bluff did a terrible job pushing on the FOUR million he got from FTP.

From the article:

I would like to make good on all of my debts, said Lindgren, who admitted some hostility toward Voulgaris. Its probably safe to assume that he would be the last person I would deal with in the paying back of people. Bob has never been my favorite person and vice versa regardless of any money dealings weve had, but that being said, I do apologize and I am in the wrong.

Whoa, wtf!? You don't get to say you dislike somebody when you owe them a huge amount of money. Pay him last?! wtf?! The scumbag meter is going off the scale.

Asked if he has any plans to pay Voulgaris back, Lindgren hesitated before answering.

A little more than halfway through the interview Lederer brought up Lindgren and a loan he had taken from fellow Full Tilt Poker board member Chris Ferguson for $2 million shortly before Black Friday. Ferguson mistakenly sent the $2 million twice once via player-to-player transfer on Full Tilt Poker and a second time via bank wire.

Lindgren kept the extra $2 million.

Lindgren is such a piece of ****.

Or maybe it's just "old school logic" to pay someone back last who you have hostility towards. Just like it's "old school logic" to define the theft of said person's $ as "money dealings we've had."

Uh, um, being a DEGENERATE gambler.

Tons of them.

And some make far more than $250k.

They are some people that will always spend more money than they make, no matter how much it is.

I am blown away that someone could be blown away. Generally speaking, those who aren't capable of understanding how people can blow through huge amounts of money aren't capable of making huge amounts. Every time there is a thread about Archie Karas you will see many people ask why he didn't stash a few million away when the blasted through 40 million that he had run up from essentially zero.

And take a look at the United States. It is the most prosperous country, during the most prosperous time in human history, and yet the debt is out of control, and the insane idea of lending people 500K to buy houses with zero dollars down swept through the whole system, and almost brought the world to its knees.

Now, why would the most prosperous country in human history, during the most prosperous time in human history, put itself, and the rest of the world at risk by engaging in risky behavior like I mentioned above?

The answer is EGO, Human Nature, and Greed, and the mindset that you never have enough. You see the same thing with business leaders and idiot investors, as they are always talking about GROWTH, GROWTH, GROWTH. They should instead focus on providing a product or service to society that they themselves would buy for that price. When that happens, societies advance, and the growth takes care of itself.

They didn't care because it was our money (the players) and they treated it like it was Monopoly money.

I'm sure I'm being leveled, but I'll still respond because I'm bored.

So let me get this straight - when I'm considering various companies to invest in, I should not worry at all about growth potential. Instead, I should look for companies that "focus on providing a product or service to society that they themselves would buy for that price."

IMO, you're saying things that may sound somewhat intellectual at first blush, but when you read them again, you realize they are completely devoid of substance.

Well, the companies that have made money consistently for 100 year periods are companies like Coca Cola, Kraft, Proctor and Gamble, and even Exxon. These companies all produce products that those involved with the company would buy at the same retail price they are trying to sell to the consumer at.

The two most successful technology companies of the last 30 years, Microsoft and Apple, both sell products that are bought by the families of those at Microsoft and Apple.

Take a look at the most successful businesses in your hometown. Which ones withstand the test of time? The ones that survive are businesses that offer value to the community. They are selling to the community a product or service that they use themselves, and they would have no problem suggesting to those they care about to buy the product.

Compare that to most of the thinking done by a majority of people like you. The first thing you are thinking about is what YOU can get out of it. People like you are usually willing to offer the public a product or service that you would NEVER buy yourself at that price.

And that is why you are who you are, and there is very little chance that you will have a positive impact on society. You need professional help. Better yet, it is probably best if you took 6 months off and went to the library or studied on your computer. If you cannot figure out that the great companies ALWAYS offer a product or service to the public that owners of the companies would feel comfortable having their family members buy, then you will be sitting in the corner with a dunce cap on for the rest of your life.

Another great company is Costco. There are a number of great companies. Great companies get the profits. Keep investing in crap and watching CNBC. You will be a laughingstock until you can start thinking about things in an honest way.
