I met an attractive girl at a party once and told her about this great and very funny video I'd recently watched via interweb in which a man had sex with a horse and died.

Who is your favorite serial killer is a great opening line when you meet an attractive woman at a mystery writers convention in other circumstances its not quite such a good opening gambit.

People on the cocktail party circuit in Washington, DC often get verbal briefings on the days news and alternative theories so that their conversations are seen as witty and intelligent.

Good conversation or banter at the table goes a long way towards distracting a dealer.

And distracted dealers are +EV.

All dealers are +EV; its the players who are -EV.
