Re: STars support staff wins again

Dear support,

A few friends and I made a dead pool for this year, where we drafted 20 people each and are awarded points if they die in 2008. I'm feeling a little guilty because Charlton Heston, my 18th round selection, passed away this evening and I was pretty excited. The bet isn't for huge stakes, but obviously I'd like to win and really embarrass the others and their poor drafting abilities. Am I a bad person?

Thanks

Hello Casey,

Thank you for your email.

Dead pools are a controversial subject. Some people find it amusing, others
dark and nasty.

Personally I don't find them very funny, but whether you are a bad person
because of this, in my opinion is a question of the context you and your
friends made the competition.

As a "friendly" competition in a closed circle I personally don't see this
as particular bad, but as a public issue i would call it pretty evil and
tasteless.

Hope this answers your question.


Regards,

Jesper S

Hey support,

Does playing the acoustic guitar and writing formulaic songs really get
the college girls? I really do like sex. However, I don't want to be "that
guy" or "that douche".

Your pal,

Hello Dave,

Thank you for contacting PokerStars.

From what I can tell, "those guys" seem to do pretty well with the
ladies. However, I think the question you need to ask yourself is this:

"Is a girl who is attracted by formulaic acoustic fluff the sort of girl
that I want to get with?"

As a case in point let's take John Mayer. I think John Mayer pretty much
fits the definition of "that guy". It is my personal opinion that he
writes some pretty uninspiring stuff ("Your Body Is a Wonderland" springs
to mind), and a quick wiki will reveal that he does very well with the
ladies. However, you need to ask yourself if someone who likes John Mayer
is the sort of girl you want to attract.

I would advocate being yourself, but if you do need to take on a persona
in order to attract women, why not choose one that allows you to look in
the mirror at the end of the day and be comfortable with who you are?

To summarise, don't be "that guy".

If you have any more questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to
contact us.

Re: STars support staff wins again

Well I asked a sausage gravy recipe in BBV4L and ran it over with stars to see what they thought:

Hello John,

Thank you for your email.

I am sorry to hear that you are not playing poker in your favorite site
as I
understand how important it is to feel comfortable and enjoy the
experience
while one is playing poker.

We do have several promotions and bonus offers for our customer and I
am
positive you will be able to receive one of these in the future. Please
check our Promotions page for more information on our current offers:

http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/promotions/

You can check for additional biscuit and sausage gravy recipes on the
following link:

http://www.cooks.com/rec/search/0,1-..._gravy,FF.html

although I understand one always enjoys more his own gravy as it was
his own
making and creation.

I hope you can continue your cooking experiences with success and also
enjoy
playing poker at our tables.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us.

Regards,

Miguel B

Hello Michael,

Thank you for your email.

Such a difficult question... Both would be torture and who would answer

all the support emails? I would rather watch the A Team.

Hello Pokerstars Support,

you get forced to watch either 'my little pony' or 'the
teletubbies'.


What is your decision?


Best regards,

Re: STars support staff wins again

Hello John,

Thank you for emailing us.

Allow me to explain that we do run reload bonus promotions from time to

time, however you are not eligible for any deposit bonus at the moment.

Please be aware that we will notify our players when they are eligible
for
such promotions via email, and our promotion website, which can be
found
here:

http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/promotions/

In regards to rakeback, we strive to give all players the lowest rake -
"rakeback" promotions only serve to charge players more rake, and then
give it back at some later date. If you compare the rake schedules
across
sites, I suspect you will find PokerStars is among the lowest, if not
the lowest, in terms of percentage for rake.

In regards to the duel, you need to consider a few extremely important
aspects;

Firstly, we never saw Yoda in his prime. While we saw him perform some
amazing feats against Count Dooku, he could have easily been three or
four
times faster and more powerful in his 30's, when he first became a Jedi

Master, and completed his Padawan apprenticeship (my assumption; not a
fact). He may have been reckless with his powers in his youth, which
caused sheer-less aggression, that even the likes of Neo could not
stop.
(Again, assumption, not a fact. His wisdom in the movie's suggest he
has
made some mistakes in the past, and has learnt from them).

You would also need to keep in mind that Neo's fighting powers really
only
worked in the Matrix. While at the end of the third movie it showed he
had
some powers outside of it, all his fighting powers occurred inside the
Matrix against Agents, specifically Agent Smith.

So let's take the assumption that they duelled in the Matrix. The whole

point of the Matrix, as Morpheus explains to Neo in the first movie of
the
trilogy is you can do anything you want, as long as your mind will let
you. Now factor in the fact that Yoda could move objects, even large
ones,
and fire lightning from his hands in the real world. How do you think
he
would hold up in a virtual one?

I think considering the fact we have never seen the full extent of
Yoda's
power, and the fact that the force surrounds everything (including the
Matrix), it would only be reasonable to conclude that Yoda would win
the
fight, and dare I say, possibly even destroy the Matrix.

Answer your question, I hope this does.

May the force be with you.


Regards,

JeffreyV

Re: STars support staff wins again

as with anything remotely funny that shows up on 2+2, it started out great but has been driven into the ground.

in an unrelated story, do you guys know what the odds of being dealt AA 4 times in a row is? IT'S 50/50 - IT EITHER HAPPENS OR IT DOESN'T!!!!!!!!! OMGLOLRICKROLLBBQCOPTERSKATES

Re: STars support staff wins again

Thank you for contacting PokerStars.

We value our player's feedback and I am sending your suggestion for bounty
tournaments to our Ideas box for consideration.

Please be sure, that we do take your ideas seriously and appreciate the
time you spent to send us your email. If we decide to develop a new
tournament, based on your suggestions, we will proceed to inform you
immediately.

As the old saying goes, honesty is the best policy and with that in mind,
unfortunately I do not believe I have the necessary life experiences to
provide you with any meaningful advice on the situation you have
described. I wish you all the best and hope that everything works out in
the end.

If there is anything else we can help you with, please do not hesitate to
let us know.


Kind Regards,

PeterZ

I am afraid I gave it to my fiancee also because she is complaining about
itching and a rash in her "private region". She is going to the doctor's
office tomorrow to have tests done and I know if she has a STD I am
screwed. The problem is...I had sex with a sheep and I dont know which one
it was or if that sheep is still alive to have it tested. The question is:
should I just be up front and honest with her about everything and accept
my fate like a real man or should I try to throw the blame at her saying
she cheated on me. Man, I put myself in a bad position on this one. Your
advice is greatly appreciated.
