    For me , I dont worry about the naysayers.....if you allow them to influence the way you play you did not really
    have much belief in the way you played in the first place.

    MY only point all along is that if you dont play or think like I do, dont worry about it, by posts of data and results
    and so forth were like TDV said,,,,geared for the 5% or folks that think like I do.

    Sadly, I discovered, there is no player here that plays exactly like I do, Rick and James and you think a player can make
    a difference, but I doubt if we play the same .

    I had something happen the other day that sorta explains this whole DI thing. I was at Green Bay, just got to the table
    and there were 4 guys including me, I got the dice on table end and was throwing my inline shot. I had maybe 3-4
    rolls and a seven, the guy next to me said just loud enough to hear ,,what the hell kind of a shot is that??? fine, the
    dice went around and not one got more than 3-4 shots, back to me I changed sets and another short roll, the guy
    got so upset he moved to the other end of the table. now mind you, the shot looked like it was supposed to..laughing
    so anyway again no one had over 4 including that guy and I changed sets again and had maybe a 6-7.. he got so upset
    off he went. The next guy shot 2-3 rolls and left he was broke , I got the dice, two new guys came, I made another
    set change and had a nice long roll hitting the ATS bet....

    So Eagley2...real life is just like this site......he had no idea what I was doing, he did not care but getting mad at him
    served no purpose.... I have to have more faith in what I am doing than that, and I have to understand if I am going to'
    throw differently, than others, that kind of stuff is gong to happen. I admit maybe 7 or 8 years ago I would have reacted
    differently, I thought I was a DI...you are supposed to notice that...…...now I understand I am just an old fart playing
    dice, my way.

    The player can make a difference in the outcome by understanding what he is doing...… but if your doing this to look good
    or impress some one else...your going to get your feathers ruffled.

    We've missed most of the rain but we had quite a bit of wind one night. I have enough trees down that I won't have to worry about firewood for a couple years. Luckily most of them are on the farm ground. None close to the house.

    I'll have to put the 28" bar on one of the chainsaws for that one.

    Wifey asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I told her a Stihl MS660 or MS661. I have a couple MS291's and a MS170 but the 291's don't like the longer bar very well.

    tdb,

    I generally post to counter BS posted by the Nay-Swayers on this thread; but their BS does not affect my Playing of the Game of CRAPS.

    Yes, all CRAPS Players have their own little flukes when it comes to Playing CRAPS, including me.

    Like I have stated previously, I never Change my Set or Throw, when shooting @ a Casino, changing only when practice has dictated that I do so.

    If & when I am not hitting, on a Craps Table, I simply exit that Table & or Casino. Needless to say, I seldom bet on another player, unless I have seen them Shoot the Dice previously, either at an earlier time, or on their shot at the current table. This allows me to skip the randies & the associated $$$ losses therein.

    No, I do not WIN every time I throw the Dice, but with betting technique, my WINS exceed my Loses & that's what makes CRAPS FUN!

    Lastly, I do not Play CRAPS every Day or Week & do not support myself from winnings at CRAPS, nor do not live in Las Vegas .

    too bad Im not close enough to you, I see alot of potential bowl blanks in that fallen tree. Id spin a few for you on my lathe if you cut it nice and pretty for me.(I only have an electric chain saw and I dont trust it, nor am I confident enough to play with it anymore)

    I wouldn't mind being able to play with one of those. I don't actually need one, but if I were able to LIFT THE [EXPLETIVE DELETED] LOGS onto it I would not have to worry about being harassed by panhandlers when I walked down the street!

    Twelve,

    Which of our board members do you think could best serve as Noah? While JH has a plane (the picture of which was a classic!), not sure about a boat.

    It's raining again here.

    Saturday night we ate dinner at Prairie Meadows. They have a mini tub craps game that is undernieth the seam between the original building and an expansion. It leaks. Instead of moving the table they had plastic over it. lol.

    Koko,

    A most excellent question, that deserves considerable cogitation and further explanation, but due to very limited resources of late, I will have to be brief.

    Because of his mastery of nature and experience with boats and his close proximity to the Lord, the obvious choice would be Mr Lid, and of course Barney is good with animals.

    I believe LID has also posted pictures of his living quarters which suggest he has experience dealing with deluges.

    Twelve4s,

    Do you feel that Lid & Barney could Navigate the Arc through Troubled Waters?

    Not only could they navigate through the end times, but I’m sure they could convert a section of the ark into a first class gambling emporium and slot slut ranch. What better way to leave this world?

    LID is definitely the most qualified for skipper...just look how he checks which way the wind is blowing...I wonder if he wet his finger first... it works better :rolleyes:

    yacraps,

    So you think that that finger would help LID Navigate the Arc Through Troubled Waters?
