But do you remember the putts on the finishing holes both days?

Excuse me for butting in, but isn't putts spelled with a "z"?

Because I really really hate it when the shooter sevens out on the first roll in that situation, I sometimes wait out that first roll just to avoid such an outcome

Ahhhhhh...........words of wisdom from the poster boy for patience in investing and all other matters.

Yes, I understand better now. Thank you.

let's say the point is 8 and I've bought the 10 as well, but 9 keeps hitting again and again. I've been known to put a few bucks on the damn 9 at that point just to stop getting annoyed. If it keeps hitting, fine; if not, it'll push the dice to my 8 or 10...

Hmmm....I dont know what tables you play at. If you played at mine you would see that if you put money on the nine, it inevitably causes the dice to seven out immediately. I agree with the comments on the squat guy with jewelry....also watch out for the elderly gentleman who is swearing at the dealers even before he has lost his bet.

cSlacker....who has since become a true curmudgeon and now plays the don't.

Having heard me blast the computer technician who came to my house for the fourth time, my wife suggested on her way out the door that I should vent on the curmudgeon thread. Frankly, I don't know how anyone who is a novice at computers can ever get anything figured out these days when manufactures and their service providers don't want to take the time to examine all the potential issues. I'm the farthest thing from a techy (not as if you don't already know that) and I feel like I've got to be the computer expert any time I talk with these people. The idea of leaving them in a room or letting someone on the other end of the phone taking full responsibility for what might go right or wrong for the stuff they're paid to do is incomprehensible when it comes to a stand-alone PC in a home.

And people wonder why I refuse to network my laptop and PC. ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGHHHH! (That is NOT an emoticon!)

--Mike Buckley

P. S. She was right. Now I feel better.
