Random Things I Find Interesting

  • Jerry Lewis playing Richard Belzer's uncle. (Law & Order: SVU)
  • The war in Iraq has been going on for exactly a quarter of my life.
  • The Cluedo house.
  • When Paul and I were children we used to play spies, but not like other children play spies (running around shooting, etc), we would do what real spies do; 15 minutes of surveillance then 2 hours of paperwork. Seriously.
  • Lab Scientists.
  • Smoothie Ice Lollies.

I'll come back later and actually write some stuff...when I can think of stuff to write, that is.

P.S. Spending more time on Flickr than blogging at the moment so if you're sick of coming here and not seeing any updates then go to my Flickr.

Note to self: Tomorrow, post about the "do not enter / cupboard door" incident.

Another Chinese show I've been watching. Unlike "Life of Dragon and Tiger" I have no idea what the english name for this one is.

A bunch of poker stuff

Yesterday, Paul was playing on William Hill and guess who was sitting next to him?
I'll tell you! Jamie Gold! 2006 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion, Jamie Gold. We confirmed it by using SharkScope and yes it was him.

Why was he playing at the £1 Sit n Go's on William Hill? I don't know. Ask him yourself.

Here's the proof!
Zoom in, you'll see it better (Paul is Casio1000).

What else? Oh, you know how everyone is always talking about Chinese poker? I had no idea what it was until a few hours ago. It always sounded mysterious and complicated. That is, until I found out that it is actually a game I used to play all the time as a child called Crash! Each player gets 13 cards and you basically just make regular poker hands and put them in order.

So now when I read Phil Hellmuth's blog and see him writing about how he lost $500,000 playing Chinese poker against Phil Ivey, I know exactly what he's talking about. And it's weird because to me nowadays that's a child's game!
