april 19 saturday morn
moved back up to my old table and am getting DESTROYED. PERHAPS betting a LITTLE more aggressively, and I am certainly LOSING more aggressively than I have been lately, of course you can lose a lot more at this table than the lower one. it is AMAZING the difference between .01/.02 and .05/.10. yes it IS easily five times more intense!
so yesterday I lost 10 chips (max buy in). i was perhaps too foolish because I only had two pair, but it was high pair like AA KK, I got a GREAT flop, so started to secure my position by betting solidly after the flop, and then of course the other guy drew me in, into all-in, and he had QUADS, but he would have beaten me with Trips anyway.
and just now. a guy drew me in real good because i though he was bluffing at having an ace, when I had pocket kings, and the flop included one ace. so I played more aggressively and foolishly, calling his stupid bets, and he beat me with like Trip 7’s.
and now my bankroll is so low I couldn’t really play two tables if I wanted to!
all signs point to: go back down to the Smallest Table. Which, I’ll repeat again, did not exist when I first started – this Rough table used to be THE Lowest. now it is the second lowest.
ANYWAY. my new plan is to do a LONG powerwalk today, at least 4 miles or 90 minutes, actually excited about that. heh. beats losing sh1tloads of money!
went for an 85 minute or so SUPERPowerwalk. weird, could have been no more than 3.5 miles, hmm i should check. hmm internet sez its 4.3 miles. even better son.
so that was very tiring obviously hehehe.
would like to watch more History Documentaries because they are interesting, and in our Idiocracy World, everyone has forgotten history.
ok or since my usual Walking Path is 1.6 to 1.7 miles, I could just do that three times a day. notbad.uh
cuz the one sucky thing about the Super 4.3 mile walk is the roar of traffic, really NOT stress reducing.
ok that settles it then.
yesterday watched a horrible horror movie and then struggled to find something on tv. found an interesting pbs document on madame jiang kai shek, the wife of general jiang kaishek of china who rose to prominence with the nationalist party in 1910s and 1920s and “the mainland” was eventually taken over by chairman mao.
the documentary focused WAY too much on the wife, who WAS an interesting character, but I wanted more of a “20th century history of china” thing. How exactly did the war between china and japan unfold? if japan was kicking china’s A so bad, how did the war end? did japan take all of manchuria? how big was manchuria? and why the hell didn’t mao invade taiwan and kill kai shek, where kai shek had set up “goverment in exile” and even had a seat at the UN and relations with the US. but there were only 2 million people on taiwan, and 660 million in china at the time.
so that is why i want to watch history documentaries. on that type of thing. mainly 20th century stuff.
then i watched charlie rose and they had on david brooks. really not sure how I really feel about him, but he is interesting to listen to and is a real big picture guy and had an interesting 30 minute chat with charlie. then they had on ben horowitz, cofounder of tech venture capital firm andreesen horowitz, and, I found out, son of writer/activist david horowitz. and AH seems to have a good record for identifying hot companies like facebook hehehe. they also made a HUGE investment in coinbase, which is how i get muh bitcoin, and they actually had a mini discussion on charlie rose about bitcoin. nice. I rose above The Idiocracy with muh Pseudointellectual TV watching.
Because it really is bad out there. I am actually watching “idiocracy” on comedy central right now hehehe.
note: the brilliant and hilarious mike judge has a new show called “silicon valley” about Tech Entrepreneurs and Venture Capitalists. PRetty neat. you should watch everything mike judge related. well, the satire stuff at least. and
“even” king of the hill is pretty watchable. anyway “silicon valley” is pretty funny too, we would be able to relate with the tech virgin beta hero, except that he is becoming a millionaire for his invention AND had a Stable Job before that, but he was just BORED with its LAMENESS. Making enough money to LIVE in Silicon Valley, how the hell did he GET that job? would much prefer to see a Mike Judge show about a REAL loser, who gets a comp sci degree but is such a loser he lives with his parents and can’t find a tech job ever and has no energy to be creative, and can’t hold down his stupid stressful sh1tty jobs, so his only hope is to do 1.7 mile powerwalks and write a blog for losers, hahahaha.
no i do not have a comp sci degree, hehehe, I could actually probably make that work if I had one. i have a useless nonstem degree.
anyway david brooks. he is interesting, i like listening to him talk about The World as I try to figure out What He Is. Sure he is Moar Conservative than New York Times Average, but is he a Neocon? A Zionist? There was a time I thought he was, so I disregarded everything he said. but now I have mellowed out a bit, eheheheh. Even if he is my Middle Class Enemy, perhaps he can still have SOME good ideas. (but cert not ALL.)
also try watching some Movie Musicals from the 50s and 60s. A Simpler, More Wholesome time, with real Feelgood Love stories and Underdogs OVercoming Adversity Stories. The Antithesis Of Decadency and Degeneracy.
Something like “SOund of Music” or “Singin in the Rain” would not be a bad place to start.
