Remember the Scott Expedition, of which three members died 100 years ago today
"Every day we have been ready to start for our depot 11 miles away, but outside the door of the tent it remains a scene of whirling drift. I do not think we can hope for any better things now. We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker, of course, and the end cannot be far. It seems a pity but I do not think I can write more. R. Scott. For God's sake look after our people."

Does anyone know anything special about Amerigo Vespucci?
I don't want any of you complaining about my lack of knowledge or to inundate me with theories about who really discovered the New World, I just need to know a few things about the voyage in which he discovered America...let's just say that it's for my Symphony.

Real Politics: Equal civil marriage consultation
Brace yourselves, WebDippers, we have an opportunity to say something that actually matters for a change! (Brits only, sadly). Instead of making the same old arguments to the same old people, why not say something to the government as they consider new legislation?

Of course not. I said it as a joke. I'd rather not be banhammered by FK.
Draugnar (49 D (G))
29 Mar 12 UTC
Of course, abge. I think we are all good enough players to make our decisions based on what is best for our position and have nothing to do with friendship. Besides, despite my going off on you all the time, I do consider you a friend as much as fortknox. He's just my fully sane friend and you are my "drives me up a fucking wall" friend. :-)

Is this going to be anon or no?
zultar (3790 D Mod (B))
29 Mar 12 UTC
Should be anon in my opinion. All good full press games should be anon wta unless everybody is familiar and friendly to everyone to where the *friendship* factor does not override the press and board position (even on a subconscious level).
I know you were kidding, CF.

I think abge was pretty adamant about non-anon and I prefer non-anon as well. He described my reasons pretty well when he descibed his own. I can't really get engaged in an anon game. Ijust don't seem to get emotionally and intellectually vested in it. I consider everyone on this site with very few exceptions to be friends and everyone listed in this game I would buy a drink for and have a cigar with if we ever met in person.
zultar (3790 D Mod (B))
29 Mar 12 UTC
Wait, how did I get on the waiting list? I don't remember expressing interest, abge.
@D, you really want to buy KA a drink and have a cigar with him?
Draugnar (49 D (G))
29 Mar 12 UTC
OK, only know because he is under age. Same with D33. In those cases I would buy them a non-alcoholic drink (virgin pina colada or some such) and skip the cigar.
Draugnar (49 D (G))

When are we going to fix that by the way? The posting too frequently thing.
It doesn't matter much of the time since I've begun to be rather wordy. This game has had a bad influence in that regard.

@CF - Are you gonna play the "I'm drunk, I don't know what I'm doing , I'm just a "girl", and besides, I'm cute" ploy? That doesn't work on me at the poker table and it won't work here. ;-)

Celticfox (100 D (B))
29 Mar 12 UTC
@Draug Absolutely not. But I've actually never played a full press non-anon game before. I have no idea what to expect.

@Zultar Yeah wouldn't do that anyways. Just not that kinda girl.

I'm actually really excited to see what this is like.
Celticfox (100 D (B))
29 Mar 12 UTC
@DRaug And besides it was Thucy that played up the whole I'm drunk I don't know what I'm doing schtick during the last webcam game. If we didn't believe him you guys surely won't believe me.

@CF - I had one woman (would say lady but she was no lady the way she was acting) try that at the poker table sometime back. I cleaned her out twice (she rebought and continued to try the stunt). The only time I ever loved having a woman call me an asshole! My response was "Yeah, but thanks to you, I'm a $1000 richer, so call me *Mr.* Asshole!"
fortknox (2059 D)
29 Mar 12 UTC
@CelticFox: "I'd rather not be banhammered by FK."

She's afraid because she has actually seen the size of my banhammer. True story.
zultar (3790 D Mod (B))
29 Mar 12 UTC
@CF, that's a shame that you are not willing to do that. I am by the way. Get me a game with MM, Babak, Dejan, and a few top 20ish, and I would get YJ to help out and put on one hell of a show. It would be cacophonous symphony the likes of which WebDip has yet to experience.
Celticfox (100 D (B))
29 Mar 12 UTC
Like I said before in another thread there's a) an art to it and b) not my style.

It's true that hammer's plenty big.
Draugnar (49 D (G))
29 Mar 12 UTC
Yeah, we've discussed it. I just love telling that particular story... did I mention I hit quad forus to bust our 3s full the other day? Damn sweet. I was hoping the other guy had pocket threes cause we would have had an official bad beat (quad fours beating quad threes with the pocket pairs in the hand) and would have split 30,000 around the table (loser gets half, winner gets a quarter and the rest of the table splits the remaining quarter) so I would have gotten $7500. I was *so* hoping he had the pocket threes.
Celticfox (100 D (B))

@Draug How often do you go play Poker and do you just stick to poker or play something else?
Draugnar (49 D (G))
29 Mar 12 UTC
I always start at the poker room, but if I can't put anything together in the first hour or so, I leave the table and go play one of the player vs. house table games like Blackjack or one of the poker variants. Even the best players have nights they just can't get anything but seven deuce off and flopping A-K-10 rainbow. The key is to *know* it isn't meant to go your way and walk away before you lose your stack in frustration. And yes, I'm strictly a ring/cash game player. I like to get up and go home when I notice I'm starting to bleed off some of my winnings. I try to play 2 or 3 times a month, more if I seem on a roll, which I have been of late. It's a nice supplemental income of usual about 10-15K a year after taxes. and yes, I started filing them so the government can't come back should I win one of the jackpots and start looking over my bank account and purchases and decide to audit me. Better safe than sorry. Just keep detailed records of each night's buy-in and cash out. You can write off your losing nights up to the total of all your winnings so you only pay on what you actually made on the year.
