Indeed, always harkening back to past glories.
Or scrambling to erase (or revise) his earlier posts.
I need a stiff drink.
I wouldn't bet money on chess. and certainly not 10,000 dollars.I don't know grandmaster well enough. I doubt that learning about various grandmasters will make me better at chess. and what would I win If I bet 10,000 dollars 20,000? not even worth the risk. I can lose it all in one second.If I invest 10 $ in lotto I can win 1,000,000 dollars if I invest the money in the stock market I may not get a quick win but I will not lose 10,000 dollars in a second.Note I don't have 10,000 dollars I am not rich.
my personal advice/ experience you should always consider the money you choose to gamble as lost the moment you bet it. never bet more than you are willing to accept to lose. there is no such thing as a 100% sure bet.
Not that I'm disputing your risk tolerance or decision, but you're discounting (or at least glossing over) the probability in your risk/reward scenarios above.
Oh, and you absolutely can lose $10,000 in seconds on the market.
Both of your revisions were still "put downs," pure and simple.
How does that fact continue to elude you?
And now you want credit for "less inflamatory riposts?"
What planet do you hail from?
Earlier @Ciljettu said he would only respond to me if I wrote something "intelligent."
Glad to see I got through, at least this one time.
What a piece of work.
Ten Grand on Anand.
You'll notice that the habit of revisionist history aligns well with the pattern of rationalization -- for example, post #42 now reads:
"centuries before your country as we know it was born."
Where it used to read:
"centuries before your ancestors invaded the lands you now call home."
No personal accountability....
I've shown the goodwill to edit in a less inflammatory riposte and you still criticise me.... blah
That was a attempt to cover it up to avoid taking accountability for it and anyone reading this knows it. Only once you're called out on it do you, surprise, surprise, retroactively rationalize changing it.
I assume, then, you also think that after spitting in someone's face, wiping it off is a gesture of goodwill?
... if you want to play the victims, be my guest. I'm off now...
I bet a 16-year-old-girl (good-dowry) & 10-camels on Gelfand....
$10K, that's a stack of the high life.
Whenever a lady asks me if I have any photos of my children. I say no, but I have lots of pictures of dead presidents in my wallet.
Shit! TheGrobe, you screwed up a perfectly good thread--the intent of which was to give Woodshover Romney hell about his personal wealth--by making The Falcon act a fool again.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
I'm not ashamed at all. It was a gesture of goodwill on my part, and typical of my generosity of spirit.
Woodshover can thank me privately if he likes.
Was there a game today? I've been gone.
no CP today was a rest day
You'd think you'd be up to speed on these things having $10K riding on it.
I've been out job hunting.
good luck with that CP
