Re: We're obviously not ready for the truth around here (LC/NC NSFW)

well played

Ive been at the drink tonight and winding some guy up (prior to stacking him 250bb deep). A short while later I got chat banned. I complained that I hadnt done anything wrong and this is the *ace* email I got from Stars..

Hello Chad0x001,

Thank you for your email. I do appreciate the time you spent looking up the word "gaylord". Unfortunately if you review the chat at the table, I am most certain you were not calling the other player, "an automobile manufactured in Gaylord, Michigan". When we review the chat we review ALL the chat at the table, and take into consideration the context of what the words are being used in.

For arguments sake, I have Googled the term "gaylord", and this is the definition that I have discovered from the Urban Dictionary defines this to be:

"The Ultimate insult...in which nothing can outmatch. In using Gaylord you are saying somebody is essentially the Ruler of all Gays. "

I do believe that this is the meaning you were referring to in the chat.

Your chat suspension will stand. In the future, please keep your chat clean and friendly.

If for arguments sake I was actually calling him the Ruler of all Gays, whats the problem? Its not like Im calling him the crappest of all the gays :/

Oh well. Another chat ban - sigh. Are there any sites where I can abuse people without being banned that I can use when Im mad with the drink?

And what I learned is that urban dictionary is homophobic.

I dunno about you but I can think I'm plenty of insults that are way way worse.

You could counter by saying you are gay and being Lord of all gay people would be absolutely awesome to you.

I thought I was laughing hard because of the kevmode well in NVG.

I suppose you could call the people Perry, the last name of a former ball player with the first name Gaylord.

Re: We're obviously not ready for the truth around here (LC/NC NSFW)

If a certain butterfly had flapped its wings a few hundred years ago, then perhaps there would have been a storm and the building of a factory where playing cards were manufactured would have been delayed a few years. This would naturally mean that playing cards that went to some establishments never actually would have been manufactured and such couldn't have actually gone to such establishments.

For instance if the first deck of playing cards from said factory went to Establishment A in year XXXX, then if said butterfly had flapped said wings and factory was not built until year XXXX+11, and Establishment A went out of business in year XXXX+2 due to lack of interest (interest that in original timeline was created by games played with playing cards), then the first deck of playing cards created by said factory would instead have been distributed elsewhere.

Furthermore, there must have been a different employee inspecting and shuffling the playing cards given the 11 year delay caused by the butterfly's wings. The guy who would have been the employee instead got elected as the Chieftan of his small tribal community. His life worked out amazing as it turned out instead of toiling in a playing card manufacturing company, but that's a whole different story.

Anyway, since Deck #1 was distributed 11 years later all decks in the whole world ended up going to different (ie: the wrong) tables with different (ie: the wrong) players getting dealt certain hands. In this world a certain person always gets dealt very good hands and certain threads don't exist.

Damn that butterfly for being lazy and resting on a leaf.

I now know more about poker through my thought experiment.

The End.





P.S.

I probably could have done better, but started getting bored. 3 minutes is enough.





And pointing out facts that disagree with this post such as when playing cards were invented or anything else, may be a bannable (temporary) offense.

Unfortunately, given that we have now reached very early morning here, I will very likely be asleep in a few hours. Now, some Fridays that may not be the case. For instance I am currently trying to schedule a January weekend AC trip with a college friend and that will be a long Friday (btw anyone planning to go to AC from January 18-21 send me a message .... I'm not sure yet but looking at it).

But tomorrow I have lunch plans and then actually plan to go to the office as also unfortunately, due to income tax changes and moreso the gift/estate tax exemption drastically decreasing at the end of this year I currently have much more then a sufficient amount of work to do as does everyone in my department.

Alas, I think ultimately our differing time zones will in general overcome such whiskey and cola camaraderie in most scenarios.


Maybe one day though. Maybe one day at the same time.

I try.


But it's happened before (granted not for a while). I started the first LC/NC thread in Beginner's before you even registered on 2+2.



EDIT:

Oh ... And I can not type properly. But I've actually gotten decent enough at hunting and pecking that I can still type fast enough for me. (Don't actually have to hunt for every key ... have a good idea where it is, but that is what it is called.)

Everyone should check out the youtube link in the profile of OziBattler

Pretty damn good IMO. Direct link:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzI04jXR-y0



Though a few of the lines I don't understand (local things I presume).

I've also never seen or heard of these guys. Anyone know if they've done anything else?




EDIT:

On a second look ... ah, I've seen (or heard mostly) better parodies ..... but this is pretty good. Chips and gravy is funny.

since you asked, they are 'Fitzy and Whipper' the hosts of an afternoon drive show on a radio station called Nova. I think they broadcast nationally. Fitzy is the taller one in the white shirt and he's Ryan Fitzgerald who used to play Aussie Rules Football for Sydney Swans and the Adelaide Crows as well. He's not the sharpest tool in the shed and has a terrible poker face - they do pranks and stuff and he often can't hold his **** together and ends up giggling and spoiling it. He was also on Australia's version of Big Brother a in the mid 2000s. Oh and he's got a wife called BJ. The other guy is Whipper, he's a radio guy....I don't know much of his background but he's been doing radio for years.

and yes, some of the slang used is very Aussie so you need to be one to get em all.

that may be true, but those better parodies don't have your 2+2 name in them do they?

Oh boy do I have a trip report for you guys holy ****. Last night out in south Florida and I ran into my ex girlfriend of three years who has been living in PA since 2010. Also other shenanigans such as picking my best friend up from jail at 2am and watching my most recent ex make out with another of my closest friends. Maybe I make a video tr?
