I don't really like writing short updates, but there are too many little things going on to write separate posts.
First, I've designed some cool t-shirts, hats, and other items to facilitate displaying of BtyB pride. Even if you don't have BtyB pride yet, the designs are cool enough that you'll want to wear them anyway. To check it out, visit the Better Than Your Boyfriend Store .
Want to support the site, but would rather get paid for doing so? I used to be professional gambler, earning the bulk of my income from online casinos for six years. I will soon write a whole story about that. The casino I got started at is called Casino-on-Net. I have a deal with them where anyone signing up with them through my site will get $200 for free!
I've played at hundreds of casinos online and on land, and many of them are rigged, shady, or will just run with your money. The most honest and fair casino I've ever played at is Casino-on-Net. I have never had a bad experience with them, and neither have any of the dozens of gambling friends I have. Anyone who signs up through my web site to get $200 for free (and yes, you will really get it) will also be supporting Better than your Boyfriend, as Casino-on-Net pays me a commission.
One last way you can help me help you is by checking out my diet book that I wrote (under a pen name). It's called The Skinny Snob and I'm really proud of it. I spent a ton of time learning about diet and nutrition, and this is the sum of my knowledge, laid out in a very easy to follow plan. If you follow it and have bought a T-shirt, when you need a smaller size, it's on me!
If you want to keep love and money separate, that's cool too. A link to my site from your blog, forum, or web site is very valuable to me. Thanks a lot to everyone who has already linked to me and helped this site grow!
As you may have noticed from the ever growing comment section, I have received tons of publicity recently. This means more people visiting BtyB, which is fantastic. The bigger we get, the easier it is for me to afford to spend time writing up even more great stories. Also, soon we will be big enough that companies will sponsor contests. I plan on spending a lot of time getting cool prizes for monthly giveaways for you guys.
I also have some exciting news about Polyphasic sleep, but I want to wait a few more days to make sure it's solid before I share it with you guys.
Here's a rough plan of what to expect from Better than your Boyfriend in the near future :
- The conclusion of the popular How I Became a Famous Pickup Artist series.
- An in depth story about the six months I lived with famous rock star Courtney Love
- A 45 (ok, maybe more) day review on my progress with 2006 Goals
- The next part in the The Great American School Bus Conversion story
- More rap songs!
- My own holiday starting this year that will CHANGE THE WORLD!
- The best way to make your computer super cool looking
- How to always be happy (really!)
- Who knows what else I'll get into and write about...
Anyways... stay tuned. I'm having a great time writing these articles, and I have a ton more that I'm dying to write about. I take a lot of time writing them, so please be patient. Thanks again for being part of this site!
Here's what's going on with Life Nomadic. The site still isn't ready, but it's getting close. I also said that it was close a month ago, so take that with a grain of salt.
The primary delay is that the site is being coded by hand from scratch. It's not built on wordpress, drupal, or anything else like that. Todd is custom coding it from the ground up. This means that it takes a lot longer to get ready, but will also be way more advanced than any other site like it.
The second delay is that we basically did zero work for two weeks while we went everywhere in Panama. Can't say I regret that at all.
Savy Seph gave a good account of advantage players. "The advantage players have an edge over the house given that they tend to win more than they lose. While cheating at casinos is a criminal activity, advantage players use legitimate means to beat the house. Since they play by the rules, they deserve to pocket their winnings. The casinos may frown on the advantage players but they are not able to use legal means to throw advantage players in jail. This shows that the law recognizes advantage players to be a different kettle of fish from the unethical cheaters." Card counting, a form of advantage play, was used by Ben Affleck at the Hard Rock Casino in Vegas to win $800,000 in May 2014.
Sky News had a few interesting quotes from Affleck in their 18 Sep 2014 article. "That is a true story. I mean, that took place. I took some time to learn the game and became a decent blackjack player," he said. "And once I became decent, the casinos asked me not to play blackjack. I mean, the fact that being good at the game is against the rules at the casinos should tell you something about casinos."
