Re: Degen Stories....

I am really drund therefore another degen story from my early days.

Was allways playing for my pocket money. Won most of the time guess because i was hungrier than the other kids. After some time this leads to a lot of problems. Like getting bullyed by others. The loosers allways get together in groups or at least came in pairs. Back than it seems like the other partys seem to see it as fair because otherwise they would loose. Or i was sozially inept. Seeing it like i saw the world was against me. Got kicked hard often enough by elder classmates or by pairs, groups etc. In the long run though most of those guys endet in jail or otherwise in trouble. Me instead was pretty fine allthough most of the time lonely. Status is a big drug. Humans brain is sozially wired therefore beeing coined in a certain ways can handicap someone. Like if you are a leader but can not absorb the loss of power. Hard learned lessons.

I had a friend, lets call him pat. ..
He was really good at math. He was very poor and lived from working illegaly in a young age. Also he did a lot of other stuff like stealing bikes. Though there where a lot of similarities between us i was more like a girlie compared to him. Would steat bubblegum. One day he made a prank. He told me if i would not change my bikeskey it would be stolen. The same day when i went to the mall and closed my bike obv it disappeared.

I saw my bike a couple of weeks later. It was my bike. I stopped the guy and told him where he got my bike. Obv he contested my claim. Afther back and ford i just took my bike and he began to scream. The kid told me he was albanian and it was his bike. Afther another couple of minutes of arguing he left the bike and run away.

The same day at the local playgarden a little guy approached me and set up a beef followed by a headbud. I bleeded from my nose. He was a small kid whome take me by suprise. In shanghai the most evil thing on earth.

There was my other friend Beard. We where sliding on a chute when my friend found a pigeon nest. There was this little pigeon who was to young to fly. We took it out of his bun and teached him flying.

Those where the days man, my man.

There's actually a reason that's helping me not bet. I'm sweating a lot of actually..I don't know if I'll go into detail about it because I don't want this person to ever read this thread. Not that I think he visits here but I have my laptop opsn around him a lot. Basically: biggest % of my 250k debt is owed to this person and he is gambling a lot of my roll away on pinny - and makes it seem like he's only liable for some of it. So this pain is causing me a lot of grief and I do not care to bet.

Re: Degen Stories....

After getting robbed out of my snack in school by classmates i tried the same on girls. Sound weird though. Back than it was not like know when you are older. In my early days girl where just the ugliest things on planet earth. Beeing a degen and obv without a snack in kindergarden one day i had the idea of stealing from julia. Julia was fourteen years old double my size and like half meter taler. It was really hard to steal the first time but easy because she did not protect the milka chocolade. Unfortunately daniel my companion blew out i have stolen. Our director came to me and told me i have to buy julia a bigger chocolate and also have to pay a fine. He told me i have to work for a couple of months because lessons has to be learned and such a behavior will not be tolerated in undergrade school.

Till know the biggest degen thing i did. For me loosing 10k in a hand in poker is nothing compare to the chocolate i stole back than.

Julia was in tears when she told me. Was the weirdest thing on earth. She did not say a word to me. She took her chocolate one day later with swollen eyes and did not even say thank you. Our teacher looked me up as if she wanted to say something to me.

The next thing i know is all the girls began playing games till than. The game endet when i graduated from under grade school. On the last day, remember i was the poorest kid in school, they told me i got cancer.

Re: Degen Stories....

Pinnacle ha allowed me to withdraw. Took out $247000 and they accepted it this morning. I have left $107000 in there for my lender friend who is degenning on the account. He's taken it from 390 to 354. Wasn't sure what to do and what he wanted from me so I just withdrew everything except what I owe him. If he busts the account I won't be paying him. Not my problem I tried to help a lot.

Re: Degen Stories....

Congratulations, Snipes. Will you please let us know when you actually get the check and it clears? I am very interested in knowing that they can be trusted even with a quarter of a million like this.

Re: Degen Stories....

Snipes why would you give him access to your account? It your account and your money? He is 0% libel for any loss on your account even though he is one who lost it?

Strange that take such a risk as if he turns round and lose the lot he can always say that you never paid him back and turn on you, seems like a no win situation for you

Block access to your account asap so not get headache of him loseing AM blaming you.

It's a little complicated. I understand the concerns but the money he's given me is not in writing. Also a great friend of mine and we share accounts and bet together. Believe it or not I have given him plenty of free rolls and the interest I was paying he always took it on a sports book. He's stuck 350k since April..he's a millionaire and wants to use that money to get even. I've tried to stop and give advice but degens will degen. As long as I'm not liable anymore I don't care. When I was on this mission last week and had 50-60-200k in the account I gave him over 25k in freerolls. Not even counting that against what I owe because we have that relationship. When I walked at 390 he had 40k on his own that he built off my roll. My pinny was actually at 425k with the 7k dodger future pending. He became a bit shady when he dipped from that to 390 and then to 350 making it seem like that was me giving him a free roll..but no. I walked away at 390 and that's my number. I wouldn't even free roll my mom $1 after walking at 390 let alone a friend for $40k who I have given over 30k in free rolls (counting other times) and over $40k in interest. There's a limit. And It's a mental thing..I know if I dipped below that mark I'd tilt and bust it all.

I never asked for handouts. I asked for bailouts with massive interest and I've come through well before the loans were going to mature. I've done more than my part and I've come to this realization now because I haven't bet in a few days and am starting to value my life roll. I gotta think about the people that matter and my future.

Oh ps. Spent some of that roll on the new MacBook Pro. Felt nice.

Getting a check for 250k is going to wave a big red flag on your bank account Snipes. Hope it doesn't affect you in anyway and congratulation on getting out of the hole.

GJ Snipes. Gargantuan hit there, enough to make you realize some things, right?

Don't mess this up. You won. Keep it this time. Handle your personal business, pay off any debts and enjoy. You're a free man now.
