Since I've posted so I thought I'd just write a few key things that have happened in my life:
I have a french speaking guy from Switzerland staying with my family for 6 months:
Brag: He's my age and plays computer games
Beat: He plays WoW..
Started playing a bit of poker again since University has started because as usual I didn't play a lot during holidays when I actually had some free time.... I don't get it either..
Brag: A lot of people still suck
Beat: I am one of the people who suck
Realized that maybe drinking too much too often may have started to have a negative affect since I now black out randomly when I get too drunk...
Brag: That I consume alcohol??
Beat: Health concerns.. fuck.. I hope theres medicine I can take.
The other night me and a mate watched all of season 5 'Beauty and the geek'...
First of all I'd say about 4 of the so called 'Geeks' were so full of shit not geeks.. I mean one of them was this guy:
Get fucked, what kind of geek is that tank.. and the another's only geeky attribute was that he wore a lot of sweater vests was 6 ft 6 and quite athletic...
Anyway after watching all 10 episodes I was quite enamored by 'Leticia Cline' who I thought while watching the show was adorable:
and then I when I was reading through the wiki about the show realised she's actually a legit model, been on tv and has nude photos on the net ...and I can just see everyone who's reading this googling her at this moment ..perverts haha
Also Jillian Beyor was on the show ... anyway the point is that the 'professional' photos of them while they definitely look hot aren't as attractive as they were when they were just fooling around on some television show ...
Anyway fuck the rambling and if you've read or scrolled down to this point here's a little something to watch:
So I'm studying for an exam that I have tomorrow morning on the subject 'Business Computing' and come across this in one of the slides:
(The context is on ethics in information technology)
• Thou shalt not use a computer to harm other people;
• Thou shalt not interfere with other people’s computer work;
• Thou shalt not snoop around in other people’s files;
• Thou shalt not use a computer to steal;
• Thou shalt not use a computer to bear false witness;
• Thou shalt not use or copy software for which you have not paid;
• Thou shalt not use other people’s computer resources without
• Thou shalt not appropriate other people’s intellectual output;
• Thou shalt think about the social consequences of the program you
• Thou shalt use a computer in ways that show consideration and
Don't get me wrong, I know the course I'm doing is overall nonsense but I'll be damned if I'm going to actually learn the above bullshit...
Not to mention I've actually broken a couple of those commandments:
Thou shalt not use a computer to harm other people: Right, I'm sure I've made a fair amount of people unhappy through poker and I rejoice every occasion that I do
Thou shalt not snoop around in other people’s files: Definitely done this before, if only as an immature joke
Thou shalt not use a computer to steal: They were only blinds
Thou shalt not use a computer to bear false witness: Blaming poker once again, don't hate the player; hate the game.
Thou shalt not use or copy software for which you have not paid: I've so far only ever paid money for XP and Starcraft
Thou shalt not appropriate other people’s intellectual output: Guilty I don't think I've ever really written anything for school that has NOT been other people's intellectual output...
Thou shalt use a computer in ways that show consideration and respect: I'll let you in on a secret called the 'internet'...
Anyway I'd be interested to hear which one's of these '10 Commandments' people have broken, if you say none you're lying.
So I just woke up at 3pm and I have exams in 4 days time that I still haven't studied for so obviously the best decision here is to post a blog that no one will probably read:
Is it just me or does LP go through the same 'cycles' every few months maybe even year/s?
This question is directed at the people who have been here for at least more than a year, because I cannot be the only one who's noticed the incessant repetition of the same down syndrome inflicted posting of the same topics over and OVER again.
I'm talking about threads that you KNOW are going to come up in a few months time again, like the 'Which Monitor', which as soon as I type 'monitor' into the search field comes up with:
This is probably the easily most acceptable repetitive cycling of the same topic, but then you do the same search for 'Mouse' and 'headphones' all of which come up with a bunch of threads where the same question is always asked by the OP who is somehow too retarded/lazy to do some review reading themselves.
In addition is the fact this is a POKER forum where granted you may get good replies from people who have the same needs as you and have probably also played a fair amount of games but not only are there dozens of sites that review these products but there is a SEARCH FUNCTION! --> yes really.
Anyway, these are all minor annoyances and nothing when compared to thread gems like these recent ones for example:
^I'm not trying to hate on the OP since as a beginning player or a new player to the online games this may actually be more of a legitimate question than most but it doesn't stop me from reading and cringing before using it in a dumb blog post.
My personal favorite, every few months a new member of LP and often a relatively beginning poker player will post a thread where they laugh or cry about a beat before having every poster (this includes trolls, decent posters and people who are no better than them) rip them to pieces.
While this is no doubt amusing for all involved except possibly the OP of such threads, I'm not sure it's terrific for encouraging new players regardless of assumed mental capacity to learn the game here at this site.
I seem to remember a post from a couple of years ago that set out 'Forum Rules' and it should probably be updated (with links to resources, examples) but I seriously think that new members to the site would benefit from being given some idea of what to expect.
Here's the old thread on forum rules if anyone was curious : Forum Rules
Anyway I've wasted enough time, and I'm sorry that I probably wasted yours.
Got to see the sun rise today, and not because I woke up early
So its 10am, I haven't slept yet because I played about 10k hands through the night and the sickest part of it is that it has become way too much of a normal occurrence.
Played about 25-30k hands in the past 3 days, and probably going to do another 10k hands later 'today' when I wake up.
I realise I haven't made a blog post in a fairly long time, months in fact... is it just me or does it feel like LP has really declined in quality over the past few months even the year or so?
Don't get me wrong, I visit this site more frequently than any other and I still go through all the threads and even reply if I feel my advice might be right.
But it just seems that the threads no longer have the same attraction as they used to and I think it was SakiSaki who said something along the lines of 'reading the threads give me a headache'...
However, all that said I have to say I probably sound like a hypocrite since I don't really contribute to furthering the material on this site either but I guess that's something I can put on my growing list of things to procrastinate and never actually do...
Anyway off to sleep, no idea why i decided to type all of the above except that I'm procrastinating the act of even going to bed and sleeping...
Okay so I watched a video my friend linked me and I'm just astounded....
Ignore the obvious homophobic judge, but that singer is alike to Britney Spears.... like just wow! haha it's like looking at spears in her prime again
Anyway been playing a lot more poker lately, however it more hands hasn't resulted in an increase in money made . In fact I think I'm down for the past few days.
I put in about 3000 hands 6-9 tabling 6max each day so maybe I'll cut down on tables and learn how to play instead of just clicking buttons randomly haha.
I'd post results and stats but I don't have pokertracker on my laptop and I haven't gotten an external case for the hdd in my old desktop yet.
Also rethought getting the Canon fs-100 and I'm going to get the Panasonic SDR-SW20 which is waterproof and shock proof which will be handier for using while on a snowboard and in the hands of my mentally retarded friends
So a friend of mind showed me this sweet sweet gem where you can meet other singles, I think it's an invaluable resource for Floofy so here goes:
Hobbies and Interests: I play ping pong and dream I’m playing ping pong somewhere else not prison.
Convictions: Drug deal went bad, next thing you know, I got hauled off for killing a cop. I’m a good person.
Name: Sim Chow Wan
State: New Mexico
Hobbies and Interests: I lift weights and you one look at my body shows it. I also getting my diploma in here so I can get a better job in heaven. That’s where they’ll release me to someday if I’m lucky and good behavior.
Convictions: I kill a man what who raped me but dna said he didn’t so it was murder.
I've never previously known about this show until i recently saw an episode on tv and it was awesome!
Searched some vids up on you-tube, enjoy
Some seriously hilarious situations!
In other news finally booked and paid for a flight to Zurich for the end of the year, leaving Melbourne on the 18th November with a 2 night stopover in Seoul which hopefully lets me wander around the city for a day or so and I arrive at Zurich on the 20th of November.
No solid plan at the moment, since I have a lot of time to organize everything else.
Oh and played a 12k hand session during the weekend ended up even because, well losing 13 buyins in the last 2k hands... better than ANY job
Okay so I came home from uni after doing a test which by the way I all nightered for while and took a nap at 7am and woke up at 9am to get some last minute extra vision in.... anyway I'm kind of dazed with tiredness and I get this pm from lachlan a poster here on lp:
Okay it took me a while to get what was going on but basically 'collegesucks' posted a hand which while I personally thought was standard whilst 'ShawnK' gave it a bigger reaction than I thought it warranted so I just replied saying it was completely standard meh?
Somehow he totally missed my point and thinks I'm accusing him of being a scammer and decides to insult me with:
"wtf, everyone thinks they're being scammed on here, you geek, kantoiki. Hey mate why don't you figure out why you always think you're being ripped off, it's because you're a tool and probably got beat up in grade school, MATE, lol, you're a geek."
Kinda funny, I laughed anyway The idea that someone was retarded enough to first completely miss the point, sensitive enough to react ...
Anyway I have a roast in the oven which I'm cooking for dinner which HOPEFULLY will be good, it's lamb roast with honey and mustard and garlic so at least it sounds kind of tasty
Oh and poker wise I plan to try to put in about 10k hands this weekend now that I have some free time, shouldn't be too hard so we'll see how it goes.
