  1. Re: So my left eye is hurting me for no reason....

    Thanks. That made me feel better.

    I think I'll just assume "eye snakes" until proven wrong.
  2. So my left eye is hurting me for no reason....

    Let's see if you geniuses on this forum can diagnose this one.

    Eye started hurting out of nowhere on Friday night. I was in my car. Got home and there was no visible injury or swelling. I did...
  3. Re: Food poisoning or stomach flu bug - is it just me?

    Yeah so many people blame "food poisoning" when in reality it's the stomach flu.

    I've never had food poisoning in my life.

    However, I did catch the stomach flu in January at Harrah's Rincon,...

    On Day 2, I had QQ. A very straightforward, clearly amateur woman in her 40s cold-called my...
  11. Re: Ask Archie Bunker about gambling or Las Vegas

    Depending upon stack sizes, you can sometimes get away from the overpair of QQ or KK when a player goes all-in. This is especially true if the board is "dry" (that is, has few draws).

  12. Re: *** OFFICIAL *** Front Gate FAILURE Thread, Presale 2015 Edition

    Anyone who says that the loyal customer base doesn't have a right to complain about a comically-inept, unfair presale is absolutely clueless.

    This was a royal screw up.

    Also, they rarely think like the user who will actually be using the site/product. That's why so many websites are so user-unfriendly and perplexing to the average person.
