    As long as you leave laughing and have a good time it's worth it.

    We're all about having a good time, poker is almost secondary... almost.

    It's funny, because it's 4 guys from the same company, and then me.

    They all work for a bio-chemical engineering firm... I'm the non-profit guy who happens to be old HS buddies w/ one of them.

    Poker's one of those things that make me feel instantly dumb. I've had the game explained to me so many times, and each time, I forget and get confused.

    You'll never see me on a poker run, anyway.

    Good job Home!
    If I don't know when I am going to die, how will I know when to have my MID-LIFE CRISIS?

    I alnost never gamble... on the rare occasions I do it's "Here's what I'm willing to spend for entertainment, when that's gone, I'm done."

    In the end, regrets rarely come from things done, but from things not even tried.

    I generally have the same philosophy. Only gamble what you can afford to lose.

    Well, the way we figure, $20 buy in gets you a night of entertainment with friends.

    Most of us leave by the time we get to $10. So that means you've spent $10 for 4-5 hours of entertainment. That's less than a movie in most places!

    Then it's $6-7 for dinner (pizza).

    So basically, you've spent under $20. It's a good thing.

    Anywhoo... good morning.
