I managed 37 years, so does that make you better at the game than I am?

Once you think about the game you've lost the game which means you thought about it again and lost it again which means you are now trapped in an infinite loop you losers.

ps: THIS IS MY 1,000th POST(4th base)
Manish, David, Fred. I will be joining your fabulous group soon.

Which is why the game, as I have been taught, has a 30 minutes leeway from the time you lose to when you are starting again. Otherwise you would be stuck forever!

This is not game, it is paradox.

Anyone who knows(thinks) about it is looser. but in order to play it you have to know the rules i.e. the game itself. but when you try to learn the game you loose it.
What the heck!

I play a variant version of "The Game". In this version, victory is determined by not caring about "The Game". So far, I seem to be winning. But I really don't give a rat's @$$.

oh come on! you know what group I am talking about groupie. What happens when the last bartender closes the door behind him in that particular forum? I've never been part of any fraternities and I'm looking forward to gaining entry to your clubhouse and experience and partake in some of the secret activities you guys indulge in over there. I just wish my assessment would come along faster, I dont know whats taking so long, I check my email every 10 minutes for my username and password. I've already crosses 1000 posts now.
