Truth

While looking at smoking websites I stumbled across two cool things. First is this email motivator. Reminds me of a story I heard once of a business in Japan that would walk around airports with signs where people could buy compliments. You’d pay some girl $1 and she’d give you a compliment about how you…

See the Coffee Cup

There’s a list of pretty good relationship tips at Men’s Health. It’s called “Confessions of a Perfect Husband” by Hugh O’Neill, and it’s pretty good. I figure if it applies to marriages, it probably applies to long-term relationships too. I’ve been seeing Gianna longer than my parents knew each other before they got married… Here’s…

Photos!

The photos section of my website is now active. Big thanks to my girlfriend Gianna for taking all of the photos, working them over in Photoshop, creating all the buttons, and coding the html. Check out our picture bottom row, second to the left. Thanks also to Bobby (top row, second to left) for helping…

Hollywood Stock Exchange

Here is one of my favorite sites on the Internet… Hollywood Stock Exchange, or HSX for short. It’s basically a play-money stock exchange for movies and actors. You manage a portfolio and try to build up H$s based on the performance of movies, actors, etc. They used to give out cash prizes when you hit…

Ever wonder why you never hear a bad beat story start out “So I had 74o in early position, right?” Here’s a bad beat story… I was in the middle of a fight with my girlfriend, and also playing several tourneys online. In one of the tournaments, we’re down to 13 people… pays 9. I’m…

Here’s a little thought that I picked up from Amir Vahedi a few months ago over some BBQ ribs. Amir, by the way, is ultra-cool and one fierce competitor at the tables. In tournaments, you’ve got to observe the jungle rule. On nature shows, you don’t see a tiger attacking a gorilla do you? You…

The Perfect Path

Flew back from Missouri to Fresno today. Came up with a few thoughts on the way back. First one was when I was thinking about the perfect path. Wrote this down in the spirit of the narraration of Pi. 9:35 am. Restate my assumptions. One. That there exists in every poker tournament perfect opportunities where…

Getting Better at Poker

I’m guessing that most people who are going to be reading this blog are probably more interested in what I think about poker then what I think about the latest CNN story or last week’s big blockbuster. So I’m going to try to start posting some more of my poker ideas. A lot of people…

It’s coming right for us!

Looks like deer hunting has gone virtual. Check out this article from CNN. I told Bobby about it and he said it reminded him of an idea he had a few years ago for a website called FeedMySnake.com. He’d set up an aquarium with a big boa constrictor and some sort of mechanical feeding device…
