Who is Jerry Logan?



Who Is John Galt? :)

I forget, is that RS or something? I cant imagine RS would be as childish as I feel TK is . TK sounds like a teenager. I would think he was young, if not I am shocked.



Logan was either Rob Singer's greatest fan or his pot stirring alter ego.

Quote:

Great minds think a like, so it would make sense they believe in the same things and have the same over all attitude.



Yeah, just there's themes that suggest a similarity beyond thinking alike. I might be seeing shadows where there is actually a tree.

Don't smile I don't know who that is either. TK might think I spend a bunch of time following RS he would be wrong.

I've about had my fun with you disrespecting bona fide professionals on this Forum every other post.

If you don't like the club, consider the, "Logout," button the door, and don't let it hit you in the posterior on the way out.

Sorry, just riffing on a theme in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Galt

Axel, go back and read how you got all flustered and started calling me "RS's man-boy" just for the mere mention of his big win in question form, no less. I was trying to understand something, while you instantly went into attack mode. You got your story-telling idol Crimm going for good measure too. Talk about mutual crushes.....You should be smiling about one thing we have in common. Neither of us is one of the intellectuals. I've never heard of those people either.

Why does discussing cars set everyone off so easily? One would think a mostly GUY forum would like to get into such a rap now and then. Instead, we get generations-old comments about millionaires who supposedly drive beaters for unknown reasons, 15 yr. old Corollas, and other rice burners. WTF?? That tells me that gambling certainly does have an effect on what people can afford to drive. But think about this: it's been said that at the end of life, when people are asked about their greatest regrets, #1 on the list was that they couldn't go through life driving a better, more luxurious car. I don't or won't have that regret.

Said by who? No-one I know, or have ever read about.

Time with family. Time with friends. Holidays, trips and achievements. Asking the person of your dreams out on a date. All rate high. The car your drove? Never comes up in all the surveys I've seen or the conversations I've had with dying friends and relatives.

Still, at least by TK's standards, I've completed that part of my life, and in forty years time when on my death bed I can be assuaged by the knowledge I drove a good car in 2014. TK might not agree with me on it meeting his standards, but I refer to the comments made by the esteemed Mission146.

The bottom line in gambling is only your results....



How do you plan to implement this bit of wisdom?
