Well, he's not a Jew.

Or maybe he is, I don't know.

Coincidentally, he actually is.

Well, then it's a pretty crystal clear analogy.

Well then he shouldn't have broken the law, and instead of worked to get the law changed while not... breaking the law.

No it isn't. For many different reasons. Further, the weed laws are changing because people are changing them. Selling weed before it becomes legal does not make you a hero, it makes you an idiot.

Hey um.. "Nate" since I have your ear.. do you know what the story of the beef between Karina Jett and You... er.. I mean, Micon is?

So jaded! Someone's always lying in poker, so maybe that's a good instinct. But seriously, I'm not Micon!
Karina Jett, Todd, Zoe, Dustin? No idea who these people are. Are they connected with the Grindabit forumn? Yes, SWC and Grindabit had a falling out some time ago. I don't know exactly what happened, but here's my take on it: Grindabit basically sold out and started promoting a whole bunch of sleazy sites. Micon felt that promoting sites like that gave a bad rap to bitcoin poker in general. So they split. That's my read on it.

What's the coffee situation like for Micon down there? The odd thing about a lot of the best coffee growing regions like certain Latin-American countries and Kenya is that they don't actually drink coffee there, and don't know shit about roasting it. That's why if I were on the lamb, I'd hit Ethiopia. Could you pass that along to Micon?

Maybe that's because Kenyans would rather spend their meager income on real food. Just a guess. I really don't know him that well, but I'll mention it next chance I get.

Answer me this, Micon: rules are rules, who are we without our integrity?

It's like this. Have you ever done something illegal, knowing that it might be illegal, but you did it anyway because the activity was basically harmless?
That's how some guys are. They live according to their own moral compass and sometimes it gets them in hot water. I think Micon has a very good moral compass and that's why I call him my friend. Okay, sometimes he miscalculates. Sometimes he does things that are just plain weird. Things like shooting YouTube videos while lounging around in his bathrobe and hitting a bong. But guys like that are straight shooters. They'll back you up when popular opinion turns against you. It's the guys who always follow the herd that end up stabbing you in the back.

Maybe I'm wrong about Micon. Maybe I'm the sucker at the table. But my intuition says no.

You're a poker dealing friend of Micons, who knows enough about Micon's poker dealings to know Micon went HAM on DN's cult, but you don't know who his former NWP partner, Todd Witteles is? Seriously?

You know Sklanksky = Dirty Dutch, right? Normally I'd let someone who stepped on one of Dutch's tiger traps just skewer themselves but I've got too much respect for you and the history of this forum to stand by and watch you do it.

So I just want to clarify something and give ya'll a quick update. No, I am not Micon nor do I have any affiliation with SWC. I don't even know Micon that well except that we've played a lot of OFC/p and Yahtzee together and I know he's for real.

What makes it personal for me is that he has a family and two year old daughter. I also have a two year old daughter and the thought of a little girl growing up without her father just breaks my heart. We're talking about an alleged crime with no identifiable victim whatsoever. It's like throwing somebody in a cage for 20 years for selling a bag of weed.

So this is my plan. Today I'm going out to buy a whole bunch of poker visors. Those visors will be prizes in the tournament. I'm going to pitch the idea to as many celebrities and quasi-celebrities as I can think of and ask them to sign a visor. If sombody really famous agrees to it, those visors might have real collectors value some day. Plus, how cool would it be to play poker with somebody like Charlie Sheen via webcam? Pretty cool, yes? (I don't know Charlie, I just picked that name as an example).

Also, I'm still looking for a site to host the event. Best case scenario would be to partner with a company like PokerStars to help with promotion and what not. But as the mod said, that's probably a long shot. I think PokerStars is trying to maintain a squeaky-clean image for the regulated market. But who knows. All I can do is ask and see what happens. Other options exist, like maybe a play-money network like Zynga or yahoo games or something like that.

I think it would also be cool to set up webcams and broadcast the event over twitch.tv or something like that. Just throwing ideas out there. That is all.

I think its admirable that you want to help someone you think is getting ****ed and you're a do'er.

That being said, your plan is unrealistic, its a massive flop waiting to happen and Micon isn't getting 30 years (he will likely get something, but not anywhere near a full barrel sentencing.) I don't know dick about LV/NV law, but a regulatory offence, he has no criminal record and Jews are protected by a magical force field in the legal system, he's a strong probation or house arrest candidate, which is unfortunate since the King of All Degenerates would richly deserve being relentlessly mocked about his time being forcibly sodomized by negroes.

If you want to help Micon, my guess is sending btc would be the best way to do it.

When you have a 2 year old daughter, you stop doing shady shit. Prisons are filled with losers and gray area types who would've loved to leave their hustle behind when they had a kid but it was all they knew. He could've gone and gotten a schmuck job like anyone else but he decided not to. The risk is that the goon squad shows up and you have to leave your kid to go do time.

Right? I mean, it's not like Micon is a German.

I don't think you have an accurate perception of Keynan poverty.

I'm really torn on this. I should probably throw it a like, because I mean... what a quote; but the beginning kindof tarnishes the religiosity.

I feel like the juxtaposition only adds to the like-worthiness of it. If I could give two likes I would. Well I guess I could do that, I could probably give 10 likes, but it's a lot of work to login with 10 different accounts.
