Anyways, im sitting in my room expecting the steelers to not cover their 4.5 spread and then joey mcglorious porter gets an interception and wins me my grand. So im thinking ill play a little poker for the weekend and see what happens. i deposit 800 bucks lose a lot and get myself down to ~290. I buy into 3/6NL on uber tilt (ive never played these stakes) and i get myself up to 650...im considering leaving the table here cause i made back a solid amount of my money but like a fool i stay in, get AA and end up all in and lose the pot. So, now my 1k turned out to be 200 bucks...at this point im pissed off at myself but such is life and im thinking about taking that 200 and throwing it, along with a bit of my other winnings into a new Movado watch. Anyways, my question is: Has anyone squandered their Mansion winnings - and if so, howd you do it? Or if you didnt, what are you gonna do with it?
and with the other hand ill doodle on some napkins, f*ck you with a loaf of bread and make you cheat on atkins.

Nope, but with all the threads about accounts getting hacked I feel like I'm gambling with it.

I'm probably going to buy a Taurus Titanium, 4" barrel, Spectrum Blue, 8-shot, .357 Magnum revolver with it. I haven't decided yet...but that is #1 on my list.

+1 for mansion. Amazing how many people can't take a free grand without feeling like they have to make it more.

Sooo, you're American then. :club: I really don't get the whole 'right to bear arms' idea. To be honest, I think most of the people in the UK think it's a crazy idea for everyone to have the right to a gun. It inevitably creates the potential for more violence.Don't misunderstand me, I have no problem with people owning guns when everyone else has them. I just believe that if noone was allowed a gun it would remove a lot (ok, some) of the problems America has.Have fun shooting things.

I don't hunt, and I don't carry for personal protection (I used to, but I don't have a license in Kentucky...my old one was in Indiana). I do keep a gun in my bedroom, just in case. But what I mostly do with my guns is just go out to the range and shoot for fun. Basically, I treat guns like golf clubs. They are a necessary piece of equipment for an activity in which I like to participate. Also, if somebody breaks into my house, they can both be used for protection (I can't imagine what a 9-iron upside the head would feel like).That being said, if Amerika continues down its current path of ignoring the Constitution and raping the civil liberties of its citizens, and they come to take my guns away, several people will die, and I will either be killed or I will go to jail for the rest of my life.

There was a no-loss bet promotion for the Steelers v. Dolphins NFL opener last Thursday. You bet $1100 on the Steelers with the spread, if they beat the spread, you get $1000, if they don't, Mansion refunds your $1100. The Steelers won by 11, and everybody won the bet (that made it).

Boy, that really worked in the UK. In the year after guns were banned the incidents of violent crimes with guns doubled. Good plan. :club: :D

I own five guns. Three shotguns and two rifles. Haven't killed anyone yet though. :club:
