I’m Indeed A Genius

Friday, November 17th, 2006, 1:56 pm

In my previous post I said that my IQ is in the 99th percentile. This is true. When I took the GRE test I scored in the top 2%. I’m not bragging, mind you–just stating the truth.

And what is the result of all this prodigious brainpower? I can answer that in two words–Fuck All!

After reading Pauly’s post today about 2-7 Triple Draw I decided to play a few hands, just for fun. Just to get a little taste of the game. Plus I have a shirt tumbling in the dryer and wanted to do something more productive than the dishes.

In five hands I learned the following:

  • A straight does not make for a low hand. This isn’t Razz, doofus. Making a wheel on the last draw was NOT a spot of good luck.
  • Oh, and by the way–aces aren’t low in TD. Nice one.

So I made a braying jackass of myself. Awesome. I should’ve scrubbed my frying pan instead. And then hit myself in the face with it. Genius, indeed.

Going to see the movie tomorrow. Going out on the Gateway Clipper tonight (here in the ‘Burgh we have these big faux-paddlewheel boats that tour the rivers and they have parties and stuff on them). Then it’s Light-Up Night in the city to kick off the start of the holiday shopping season (which really began around, oh, Labor Day). Since this is Pittsburgh, there will be fireworks. And then before, during and after the festivities there will be drinking. So, the movie just didn’t fit into my schedule. Though five hands of triple draw did.

Feeling SO smart right now.

    Ah Geno, you should have sent me $20 and I would have just kicked you in the junk for ten minutes straight.

    Do you prefer the payment be via Neteller peer-to-peer or just transfer the money at Stars?
