and after 3 days, he is risen!

If you are paying $20 for a haircut, I imagine people assume you did it yourself anyway.

Pocket change cost me my first and only black girlfriend.   It was in the middle of a roaring poker boom and I was flush in ways most men don't even bother dreaming of. Money, it was like dirt to me

it had to get put of for some reason or another. leaving on tuesday now. if you'll excuse me though my harcore sleeping pills are kicking in and I'm not seeing normal things. probably ought to ask for a higher dosage. that'll work.

no no, that's well behind face and personality.and damn it, I just remembered now how I really can't afford this damn doctor bill: just ordered a new pair of earbuds yesterday. only $50 but still, you know, me. got these. pretty good reviews for the price, and my good earbuds, the newest bose ones, are great but not even close to noise canceling, and I'm gonna need some on the airplane I imaging.edit: dog, I'm pretty sure I could've HIT THAT SHIT in the parking lot last night. just couldn't do it. no "spark."
You have terrible priorities.And terrible insurance. If you're paying more than a copay for a regular doctor visit, you're getting fucked pretty good.
A plane from Virginia to Ohio is what, an hour...two hours tops? Yeah, better fucking get a neck pillow and maybe pick up "War & Peace". Would hate for you to be even mildly uncomfortable for such a long period of time.
You...you're good.

Saw Randy sent me a congrats on Twitter, thought I'd check in and see who's still alive. Pretty cool to win a tourney after not playing poker for 14 months, at least I'll be debt free going into PT school. Hope everybody is doing welledit: got scared earlier. When did this place turn into a ghost town btw?

grinder ftw. I'll never get over the fact that this thread once sported two top-tier players as regular posters.echo what other people say about living on $25k. and yet, that's basically what generic business entry level pays right now.went to the casino again tonight. did not plan anything with chris, but he was of course there. he was playing 2-5 and had his horse in 1-3. I sat 1-3 (without seeing chris) and had a 20% chance of being at his friend's table (who I did not know), which would have made for amazing shenanigans with chris feeding him things to say to me, but it didn't happen.we went to chick-fill-a after. chris was talking about some of the hands at his table. basically, he is a nightmare to play with, and it's interesting to hear about him doing it to strangers. he plays extremely loose and gets himself into a ton of tough decisions, but he's so accustomed to it that it works out. me, I'm more like a hole in the table that chips occasionally fall into. today, I was thinking about the money I made at poker when I was still in school. I sacrificed so much grades-wise for that profit, and I spent it on literally the most senseless shit. I'm the complete opposite now... not really interested in putting in the time to get better at poker, thinking more about going back to school, jewiest jew that ever jewed.

I don't know I paid something at the office, and I'm pretty sure she said that was the copay. and what I got is definitely a bill saying how much I owe. it even details how much my insurance actually paid (not much) out of the whole amount. one of the things they always sell us when we bitch about how much we make at my company is "hey but you've got great benefits!" yeah well fuck you you fucking fuck. fifty percent fucking copay ain't great.
yeah I'm just gonna take it in tomorrow and re-read my account stuff. I thought there might have been something about me having to pay a full amount up until the copay was paid off, but if that were the case I would think I should have to pay the entire bill, not just a good amount of it. hell I don't know, I just need to not go to the doctor anymore I guess. JUST GONNA PRAY ON IT.
I was going to just laugh at your complete mis-understanding of all things insurance, but JJJ beat me:
You probably mean deductible, not copay.Oh, and I don't think "50% copay" makes any sense.

Congrats Grinder. You're allowed to come back and post once you're in grad school.

You have terrible priorities.
wait, are you saying that new earbuds aren't as important as being in good health? cause I mean, that's obviously stupid.

proc tology? pussy trainer? prepubescent tendonitis? who is this guy, strategy with the acronyms?!

wishing tony the best here, but I mean, you know, he's one of those guys you look at and go "shit, how is that guy alive?" which is pretty much my goal by the time I'm 50. think I'm pretty well on my way as it is actually.god damn sleeping pills ain't worth a communications degree. fell asleep at 8 trying to catch up from the night before and woke right back up at 11. then woke up again at 1, then again at 3, and that was all she wrote. luckily it looks like I worked something like 30 hours of overtime from my last paycheck so I might actually be able to afford the doctor visit an subsequent horse tranquilizers that he's going to have to prescribe. I miss sleeping.

best bang for the buck, not close: http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-CX380-Spo...s/dp/B001GSX7R8also, never buy bose anything; it's all garbage. the apple of audio electronics. they've managed to convince people, through excellent marketing, that their products are worth 3x their competitors' despite bose products' inferior quality
proc tology?

you know, those were actually a very close second, but I had a pair of senheisers before and didn't like them. think there was something in a review of those that turned me off, can't remember what it was though.

I was going to buy those as I've been thinking about getting a new set, but then I noticed they don't have the volume control thing that apple earbuds do and I got sad. That things a necessity for me cause my boss constantly just starts randomly talking to me from his cube and I have to be able to pause AT ALL TIMES.

I think apple's stuff is objectively better, but not better enough to go with an entry level macbook for $900 over a similarly spec'd business class lenovo for $300. that's exactly the proposition I saw when I was shopping for my parents pre-christmas.however, there is nothing on the market today that compares to the latest gen ipod touch for $170 or whatever the black friday price was. it is basically a smart phone without a 3g radio that carries no monthly fees. I don't know what the ipad's competition is but I like the idea that apple came in low at $500 and everyone insta-mucked higher price points.

all my friends who are either programmers or very savvy, such as yourself, think this, and i understand that it's really hard to program things to be so idiot-proof and all that, but come on. you can't deny the inflated pricing they get away with because people are dumb and love the brand. you're still charging 3k for like a basic desktop? my trading rig probably didn't even cost that much.

Where were you when speedz needed this kind of information???
