Becoming a Pro Poker Player

For a couple days last week I didn’t work. I woke up, walked to Casa, ate my lunch, sat with my friends until lunch hours ended, and then sat in the empty restaurant, staring out the window. What do I want to do with my life? Not the whole thing, but right now. Conversion Doubler… Continue reading Becoming a Pro Poker Player

Report Card: Panama

Conquerability: Moderate. No national army, but there are tons of security guards with huge guns. Most of them seem to like us, though, so we may be able to co opt them. Experimental data will be available 2009. Dangerosability: Disappointingly low. We insured our stuff and got pacsafes, and never had to use them. Even… Continue reading Report Card: Panama

The Gear of Life Nomadic

To say that we packed light is an understatement. We packed super light. Someone recently told me a saying that stuck in my mind. “No one ever wishes they packed heavier.” So true. With fewer baggage comes more freedom, and that’s exactly what we’re after. Still, when Todd suggested that we take only a small… Continue reading The Gear of Life Nomadic

Not Being Angry Ever

I’m writing about this because we sidetracked a post in the forums and I thought it was interesting to warrant a full article. It’s not so much that I want to ram my opinion down the throats of those who disagree with me (I do), but that I feel like my position is misunderstood and… Continue reading Not Being Angry Ever

Tynan (The Name)

Now that I’m #1 on Google for my name, I’ve been getting more people to the site searching for that. Many of them share my name, which is awesome. My parents chose the name out of a name book randomly. They wanted me to have a name that had no previous associations with anyone else.… Continue reading Tynan (The Name)

Google Screwed Me Over?

I hate Paypal. In the early days of gambling I used Paypal to send money to casinos, and Paypal would occasionally screw me over. They held all deposits to casinos for 30 days so that if the casino went under, players wouldn’t get screwed. That was nice of them. One time I deposited $10k and… Continue reading Google Screwed Me Over?

Night Swinging

When I was younger, I loved playing on swings. My best friend Ryan and I would spend all of recess on the swings, making up new tricks and seeing who could jump further. Eventually it got to the point where ankles were being sprained and we had both perfected the backflip off the swing. Now,… Continue reading Night Swinging

Mexico

As I may have mentioned before, I am a huge fan of cruises. Although I haven’t gone on one yet this year, I usually go on at least one or two every year. Where the cruise actually goes is wholly unimportant to me. Half the time I sleep through the stops anyway, and just stay… Continue reading Mexico

Exploring Airman’s Cave

We sat in the tiny passageway, exhausted. Our muscles were fatigued from overuse. We were over a mile deep into the cave, hours away from the surface, hours away from food, and hours away from water. Had our curiousity finally gotten the best of us? For the first time ever, I was worried for my… Continue reading Exploring Airman’s Cave
