Densest Element

Don't really have much urge to post about poker (and certainly have had no urge to post about sports). In the meantime I've been doing a lot playing of and thinking about triple draw lately so perhaps I will write up something at some point. In the meantime, this hit my e-mail box and I found it funny:

A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science. The new element has been named "Bushcronium."

Bushcronium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224
assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311.These particles are held together by dark forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. The symbol for Bushcronium is "W."Bushcronium's mass actually increases over time, as morons randomly interact with various
elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons in a Bushcronium molecule, forming isodopes.

This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to believe that Bushcronium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as "Critical Morass."

When catalyzed with money, Bushcronium activates Foxnewsium, an element that radiates orders of magnitude more energy, albeit as incoherent noise, since it has 1/2 as many peons, but twice as many morons.
See the flop...

The Anti-Red Sox

Being a fan for the Pats goes like this:

When it seems that all hope should be lost, in our hearts we feel faith that it will be okay, that we will find a way to win. And we do.

Being a fan for the Sox goes like this:

When it seems that all fear should be lost, in our hearts we feel doubt that it will be okay, that we will find a way to lose. And we do.

It makes for a somewhat schizo approach to sports.

Anyway, I know the best team did not win yesterday. But "being" the best team is not what playoff football is about. Winning the game is what it is about.

With some sympathy for Smokkee, I'm going to enjoy this one for the week.

No talking trash about the Colts here, that is going to be a tough game and this might be the year Peyton figures out how to win when it counts. Plus they have the Iceman now.

I hope not--I'd sure love to put a fourth Lombardi out there on the right.
See the flop...

This chat, from a 130fp silver star satellite (which I pulled off woohoo!) is pathetic:

The Gouger: AK rookie
devinr12: dude i am a professional poker player
devinr12: i play 5-10
devinr12: NL
SoxLover: that is sad
Dealer: Regular time for player nyc cannibas has expired, TIME BANK has been activated
devinr12: for a living
The Gouger: dude i am a profesion dont give a rats azz player
devinr12: dont tell me how to play
SoxLover: you totally dropped out of college didnt you?
devinr12: actually yeah
SoxLover: lol
SoxLover: wow
devinr12: betwen 5 sties
devinr12: i am up 11k
The Gouger: so the book says go all in with a drawing hand?
Dealer: nyc cannibas, it's your turn. You have 15 seconds to act
devinr12: this year
SoxLover: i feel like i should dump to you, your life is going to suck so bad
sdjen: lol

And this was before he started bragging about his "lingerie model girlfirend".

When I go on a bad run, guys like this put things in perspective. My worst poker night feels so bad, but it really shouldn't. My life is good.

By the way, it looks like it's a girl....

I've been forbidden to say "Mini Mia".
See the flop...
