Pain and Suffering

Last post until after Vegas. All of you retards will have to get something more fun to do over the weekend, like chasing some ambulances or something. I actually busted out of PokerStars this past week while waiting for Vegas. I was down to a few hundred. Not been a great month learning the cash game. I will be recharged and ready to go when I get back though.

I have been thinking a lot about why our little community is good. I mean it is not like we do much of anything except fleece people of there hard earned welfare checks and the like. It has always made me somewhat uncomfortable to respond to someone's bad news. We have had a lot of it lately from the unemployed to close friends dying. I look at those posts and they touch me deeply. All I can really do is type in a lame ass "better luck next time" or some equally hallmark piece of crap. Looking around though I see a lot of people typing their dimestore novel quotes and trying in some small way to express the fact that we do care. Even though we are only connected through some digital text spoken across the vast world of the internet we actually really do care. So even if you only have some lame ass comment to make go ahead because I am sure the people going through their struggles really do appreciate it.

It sort of gives you hope that humanity in all is vast differences and struggles actually has something that ties us together. We all hurt. We can all understand that. In a lot of ways that shared pain binds us together and hopefully in some futuristic Star Trek kind of way we will start living together as one people, as the human race. Until then I will be enjoying Vegas. Good Luck and See you soon!

Have a great time in Vegas, you snarky bastard. Make sure to tilt some tourists for those of us who can't make it. =)

I go away for a week and when I come back, Woffle has gone all sentimental? What the fudge! Your sentiments are correct, though, Woffle. Something I plan on writing about as well is how the community is collective knowledge which helps lift us all (in reference to our game, but also, I suppose, in our writing and other areas).

We are all bound together in a Star Trek world of pain. Your sensibilities for denoting the expression of human difficulties and indifference are top notch.
