The chances of something happening that already happened is 100%. Sort of mixing stats with probability, but point taken.

Update on the titty situation.
My newly developed breast tissue is still sore and very sensitive
This is very uncomfortable but it does mean that if I touch them gently my brain receives intense pleasure signals

Re: Lounge LC Thread: Spring To Life, Everybody!!

Yesterday, as we are getting another fml how-many new cases in La La Land, I get a notification from Tinder that I got a new match.

My reaction: wtf, could you have timed this better?

Then I saw her face...

and removed her from my queue.

**

Anyways, if there is one thing that I'm learning after a whole week of lockdown, it's that I know who I miss seeing and talking to and vice versa. It's an interesting place we are in. I spent hours on the phone talking to people over the past 2 days. I suspect that the loose bonds will fade away and the strong bonds will only get tighter as this "event" turns into months.

Oddly, people who I seldom ever speak to have reached out to me to see how I'm doing. People I talked to all the time before? Not a peep, but then again, everyone deals with this differently.

I have a friend of sorts who lives within walking distance of me. She contacted me, asking if I been outside lately and that she's thinking of going to the store. Short conversation later, she says she's going to cook and be lazy.

Fifteen minutes later, we are walking to the store. She brought me a mask.

As it was getting time to say bye, it starts raining. Thanks all around, but really it helped me so much. Just being able to escape, get my mind off things, live in the moment, and just talk to someone in person.

Some people I know haven't left the house for almost a week. I tell them go for a walk around the block, hallway, anything to get their minds in a better place.

Re: Lounge LC Thread: Spring To Life, Everybody!!

One of the problems with having time on your hands and listening to music is that you think “This is amazing it is obviously one of the best things ever “ and then you listen to something else and think exactly the same thing, and this process keeps repeating.
The only thing I am sure of is that Roy Orbison is the best vocalist ever, I think that this is so clearly true that it is not worth discussion.

What's the changes of "that thing" happening ever, in the implied infinity of time and decks? Well, sure, it's 100%.

But...

Say that there exists 10 Billion people on every planet, 1 Billion planets in every solar system, 200 Billion solar systems in every galaxy, and 500 Billion galaxies in the universe. If every single person on every planet has been shuffling decks of cards completely at random at 1 Million shuffles per second since the BEGINNING OF TIME, every possible deck combination would still yet to have been "shuffled".

(copied from random internet place)

Maybe a bit less than 100% under these constraints.

And that's why I don't play much poker anymore.

100% that something will happen, I guess.

People lose their shirts on a lot less than quads. What difference does it make? Is Ray Zee morphing into Sklansky or something?

What about when the nuts is on the table and nobody wins? That's not 100%.

Re: Lounge LC Thread: Spring To Life, Everybody!!

I need to begin teaching online today. In two classes, I have around twenty students. What's the odds on all of them showing up?

In further news, I have yet to go over the edge, but I'm approaching it. Emails from my too cheerful colleagues are beginning to make me woozy.

I think By Dawn's Early Light might be the greatest episode of Columbo.

Rummaging thru the great Columbo episodes section of my aging brain, the first ones I thought of were the Jack Cassidy one and the Robert Culp one.

Robert Culp being slowly driven insane by Columbo's afterthought asides was the first thing that popped into my mind. They should have made a feature length movie of that episode with Columbo played by Lucille Ball or Shirley MaClaine.

Re: Lounge LC Thread: Spring To Life, Everybody!!

columbo was great. the lead character was the whole show. peter falk is so great that you had to want to follow his "stick". he was always the same so it is amazing.

another similar type show was koljack the night stalker. daren macgaven similar type guy.
that show i really missed. he quit the show and that was the end of it.

they are finding or have found out that those with aging brains do much better if they use them hard as much as they can. like puzzles, games, and even arguing which i am good at so i wont be forgetting anything of value for a couple more years.

i've found 'normal' activities distracting for my recovery. add chess, online poker, and weed to the good mix.
