Mrrzy obviously doesn't play cards for the enjoyment. There is no sport in cheating and watching the greyhound's tail would be cheating in my book. Hence not good to play cards with him.

My neighbor planted some prickly pear. Never do that. Thick,hard boots might protect you from the thorns you can see, but the p.p. also has tiny, sharp filaments which are almost invisible and are hard to get out of your skin.

When the plant is done with the filaments, it sheds them, and wind and rain spread them into nearby soil. Not a good idea.

Ooh, Steve. I have done the same. Not fun.

Excuse the bit of thread drift, but Steve's post reminds me - I have read some from the journals of those on the Lewis & Clark expedition. Along the mid and further reaches of the Missouri River where portages were necessary, prickly pear was common. By that time boots had worn out and most of the men were reliant on elk-hide moccasins, which provided little protection from the spines of the prickly pear. Caused crippling hardship, suffering and delay in the party's journey to the Pacific coast. Many journal entries regarding this.

To bring it back around to topic, never wade through prickly pear thickets without thick, hard boots.

Don't eat prickly pear fruits whilst out on a ramble. I did this last week in Lipari, and I have a degree in botany. I peeled the fruit so carefully so as to get those little spines off, but it didn't work. Thirty seconds of gustatory delight, followed by two days of picking the little spikes out of my lips and tongue. Not what you want, believe me!

I would think that would mean ALWAYS play greyhounds at cards, since they have tells? Or never play cards if you're a dog? Unless you are tailless? Unless you're one of those tailless breeds that just wags their whole body in the absence of a tail?

I would have expected you to be less than traditional/predictable, Musket, than holding at 16, where the odds of busting are 62 percent.
Even excluding Musket's comments about other players cards, if you have been dealt 16 (in two cards), the chance that the next card will 'bust' you is 60%, not 62%

Subject: RE: BS: Never...
From: Musket
Date: 08 Sep 14 - 12:52 PM

62% aren't bad odds to play against if you intend to beat the house, although that is rarely the odds as it depends on the cards in play at any time. That's why I usually raise the dealer and get the next card. I never hold at 16.

That said, if other players have been twisting with cards faced, you can guesstimate the odds back a bit depending on what has drawn from the shoe. I do not have the quick calculations or memory recall of decent players but I reckon it works more times than it doesn't.

Been a while since I played last though. I let my membership lapse at the club I used when I stopped spending half my ruddy life in London.




Never play a greyhound at cards. He may be poker faced but every time you deal him a good hand his tail starts wagging.

Never put the keys on the car seat while you gather your things.
Invariably you will forget them as you close and lock the door.
Done that.


Though my car, like (most?) (all?) other cars, can be locked by
using a button or lever when exiting, I "never" (knock wood) use
that means of locking; I use the remote lock function of the
electronic fob that came with the car, and thus "almost always"
have both of those locking means in my hand before I close the
door. I would never, these days, buy a car without the remote
access function built in.

When I have, in the past, locked myself out of the car, the keys were
to be found not on the car seat but in the ignition slot.
That's how I learned always to use the remote access/exit fob.

Topsie, it is from the song Summer Wages by Ian Tyson

        
Ian Tyson - Summer Wages (Chords)


Intro C F C G C
          C
Never hit seventeen
                F
When you play against the dealer
       C
You know that the odds
                        G
Won't ride with you
       C
Never leave your woman alone
                F
With your friends around to steal her
                C
She'll be gambled and gone
                        G
Like summer wages


And we'll keep rollin on
Till we get to Vancouver
And the lady that I love
Shes living there
Its been six long months
And more since I've seen her
Maybe she's gambled and gone
Like summer wages

(Chorus)G
       In all the beer parlors
                F               C
       All down along Main Steet
                C
       The dreams of the season
                F                         G
       Are spilled down on the floor
                   G
       All the big stands of timber
          F                        C
       Wait there just for fallin'
                C
       The hookers stand watchfully
             F             G
       Waitin by the door

I'm going to work on them towboats
With my slippery city shoes
Lord I swore I would never do that again
Through the great fog bound straights
Where the cedars stand waitin
I'll be lost and gone
Like summer wages
(Break - fiddle same as verse)

(Chorus)
Never hit seventeen
When you play against the dealer
You know that the odds
Won't ride with you
Never leave your woman alone
With your friends around to steal her
She'll be gambled and gone
Like summer wages
F                         C
And the years are gambled and lost
                      G C      G C
Like summer wages
