Without Fear

I'm sure a dream interpreter would have a field day with this one:

I was driving along a quiet country road when i came to a T-intersection. I wasn’t sure whether to turn left or right but quickly decided to turn left and started heading north. I then realised i was heading in the wrong direction and made a u-turn. Soon after passing the intersection i came across a beautiful spot near the top of the mountain. There was a large flowing river with aqua-marine coloured water flowing down the mountain. I could see the road was slow and winding down the mountain so i decide to leave the car behind and dive into the river.

As a lay in the water floating down the river it occurred to me the water was getting faster and rougher and it was likely there would be a waterfall up ahead. I could hear a sound in the distance that made me quite sure this was the case. I had plenty of time to get out but then figured “its only a dream, lets have some fun – if I die I’ll just wake up with a bit of a start”. You know that uncomfortable, disoriented feeling you get if you die in a dream...

Shortly afterwards, the pace quickened then i found myself dropping over a massive waterfall. Strangely, there was no sense of falling or any fear at all. Eventually I hit the water below and sunk quickly to the bottom from the speed of the drop. I then looked up at the surface and pushed off towards the substantial distance to the surface. I recall regretting not taking a large breath before hitting the water and it would going to be touch and go but i made it to the surface with a second to spare. I struggled to the shore and collapsed trying to catch my breath. I was aware of people walking by and probably wondering what the hell i was doing. I fond myself giggling at the insanity but pure thrill of what I’d done.

When i eventually recovered i started jogging back up the path to the top of the mountain to retrieve my car. After some time i got to where I’d left the car and noticed a parking ticket on the windscreen. I laughed at seeing this as i didn’t expect I’d be returning to the car after going over the waterfall.

Cognitive Dissonance much

Loved this post on a forum. The final sentence made me smile.

"Since his dead is evil gone from the world now?"

From my perspective, with all the celebraions and the reveling in revenge. There is more evil than there was.

Perhaps he could be called evil, perhaps he was.
Perhaps we were fed information, and having no personal experince in the matter we concluded so.
Perhaps he should not of been killed, perhaps it is better he has been.
Perhaps it is a time for celebration, Perhaps it is a time for mourning.
Perhaps he was fighting in the name of freedom, Perhaps he has inspired many.
Perhaps revenge is just, Perhaps it is not.
Perhaps celebrating ones death, gives us a opportunity to see what we truly value.
Perhaps i am conflicted and confused, Perhaps i dont understand completly.
Perhaps i should entertain the thought my views could be wrong. merely for the sake of objectivity

Currently i have a severe case of cognitive dissonance

Not sure where my mind will settle on this, There are many perspectives, right or wrong really does not matter it is all too subjective. In my mind i imagine this thru 3 peoples eyes, One celebrating, one mourning and one trying to understand why the other 2 feel this way.

A night devoid of stars

"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that"

It seems any site that isn't one of the big three is clambering to sign up the expected exodus of players from these sites.

I just signed up for the $50 free (no deposit) from Party Poker. Looks like i get $25 for signing up then another $25 if i clear some FPP's. The interface looks pretty horrible but hopefully i can customize it a little

State of play


These guys offer an $8 sign-up without a deposit required. Could be fun to try and grind it into a bankroll.


Stars is still business as usual. Unfortunately my bankroll is $3.50 there. :/

Full Tilt is down. I hope they don't go under as I built a nice bankroll there playing Rush. Apparently their I.T stuffed up royally:

Full Tilt messed up. Their software update application will not work with the redirection of fulltiltpoker.com to the FBI. Thus, anyone, in the US or otherwise, who has the updated DNS settings, will get a failure when attempting to get the update.
Those that get the update will notice that if they go to fulltiltpoker.com, they still get the normal website.
Full Tilt is now completely screwed because they can no longer issue software updates.

I did read that it's still possible to update the client via the U.K. website which I plan to try.


Update: Yep, downloaded the FTP client from the U.K and could log in.

Fear and Liquidity

In the shit-storm that's gathering momentum at the moment, consider this. If you add up all the bankrolls held online by Stars, Tilt and AP - do you think these unregulated companies have this amount of money sitting idly in bank accounts? Or can we assume a significant amount is invested and earning the owners a healthy return.

And if their customers go into a mad panic and all try to withdraw their money at the same time, how long before the cheques bounce...?
