What the flat earthers haven't answered is if you fail off the end of the earth where do you wind up? You fall off and then what?
I hear flat Earther's have members all around the globe.

I doubt any of them thought they would have the problems they did.

The problem with having that much money dumped on you isn't a moral failure (which is always what the articles imply), it's a logistical one.

Take someone who doesn't know how many thousands are in a million and give him a million dollars, no der he's going to squander it. This is why telling people to use their "common sense" in determining the US federal budget always leads to absurdities - people just have no concept of the scale of money. Ask people to budget in percentages and they on an aggregate level replicate our current budget.

Unless you have a framework for knowing what the value of your jackpot is, it's really hard to spend it the way you want to. A millionaire would spend 10 million more accurately than a thousandaire would.

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

So the flat Earth is a disc that has an ice wall at the edge that keeps the ocean from running over the edge. What's on the bottom side of the disc? What happens when global warming melts the ice wall?

Another Earth, ldo.

But in that Earth, the scientists have correctly determined the Earth is flat, and they mock all the round Earthers.

Can you bring so much cash to a strip club that you get negative utility out of having even more money? Probably yes.

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

Bunch of limpers and I check J3o in the BB.

Flop JT5r

I hate it, so I check, UTG bets, UTG + 2 calls, sb calls, I hate money so I call.

Turn 5, sb leads. I donít think heís bluffing and Iím already chopping at best so I fold. UTG calls, and UTG + 2 raises, both call.

River blank, checked to UTG + 2 who bets, both call.

Any guesses?

Quads or J3o seem highly likely

Would have c/r flop.
As played would have called turn when SB donked.

Guessing UTG+2 had 5x, Tx or Jx or bricked straight draw, one villain had Tx, another had Jx

I like the way you played it.

UTG has QJ
UTG+2 has A5
SB slowplayed JT

I'm sure the real answer is way more interesting. They all had a J and chopped it up? A pair of Tens won?

2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

UTG+2 in particular Iíve played a decent amount with and I thought heíd have A5s or maybe even 55.

He showed JJ...like I canít even believe he didnít raise pf. Sb mucks A5o faceup at which point UTG slams AA into the muck.

ó

ETA: a guy is playing in a backward kangol. Drunk guy keeps calling him JACK KOO STOW. Maybe you had to be there

I just found out the hard way that food comps at winstar expire in 36 hours. I had about 6 of them saved up for a nice dinner. Darn it.

That's depressing. Now you have to play more and just to eat

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

I sat down at a table that happened to have an empty seat to my left, and before we'd even played a hand another guy said, "Can I have that seat?" pointing to the seat to my left, and after the dealer said yes, he pointed at me and said, "I want to be to his left because he raises EVERYTHING".

I was actually flattered and a little bit stunned. People are actually adjusting their game to compensate for me!

A few hands later the seat to HIS left opened up, and I said to the dealer, "Can I switch to THAT seat just to piss him (pointing to him) off?" The table laughed. The guy happened to be wearing headphones and took them off and said, "What?". I repeated what I said, and he shook his head, rolled his eyes, and with a totally straight face and a totally serious voice said, "It's not that it would piss me off, it's just that I want to be on your left so that I know what your decision is before I act".



Aside: You ever been near those people who forget that they're wearing headphones when they start talking? He did that once, and I said, in a vocal volume that matched his, "Ever notice that when people have headphones on that they talk louder?" the table laughed, AGAIN he took off his headphones and said what, and after I repeated myself he looked embarrassed and said, "oops! sorry!"

This was probably one of those "you had to be there" jokes but there's no law that says every internet post has to be productive!

You should have moved to his left. My favorite part was the yelling.

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

One time a very loud individual motioned me closer so that he could whisper something in my ear. When I did, he leaned over, cupped his hand to my ear, AND TALKED FULL VOLUME!

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

I point it out to the dealer and let someone else deal with it.

If I want to play the hand, I'll shuffle it so it's not visible during the hand, but ask the dealer to set the card aside whenever I give up my hand.

Yabbut you are (or have been) an Oaks reg, and they don't do setup changes on demand, but will replace marked/damaged cards.
