Probably just some AP's that found a good game in Tijuana.

Lol I like to play a game with myself called.... Who wrote that? I have my screen set up where I have to scroll left and right to read or see the name. Sometimes I just forget or don't feel like playing. I read the above post without looking at the name and thought sounds reasonable and moved on without looking at the name. After reading your post I was shocked. I had to look and make sure it was Dan who made that post and reread it, wondering what the catch was.


It was me. - Did I make a mistake here toning it down and being a bit civil amongst a crew of ruthless card sharps AP players?

Some article in the New Yorker on this.......
Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes - Henry David Thoreau. Like Dealers' uniforms - Dan.

They were obviously edge snorting.

The only time it snows in Tijuana.

The problem is most of the time lack of understanding as I said before. Recently I had a huge fight with the tsa- missed my flight. I was in Michigan and bought 4 jars of Saunders fudge. My mom
Loves it. Tsa has allowed me through before never an issue. This night they stopped me and after
Some banter back and forth I was about to leave until a supervisor came and explained that the requirement is that it be solid so if you pour it out and it holds its shape it's solid and then told me next time I travel
With it to freeze it first!!!!! Are you joking? I lost it and needless to say was forced to miss my flight. But this illustrates just a lack of knowledge and understanding by most people.
Assumption is if you travel
With cash you are up to no good- just like trayvon Martin with a hoodie- have a hoodie on in a bad neighborhood and up to no good- Not always correct

That's not as implausible as you make it sound. Private party transaction. Virginia landowner selling a piece of property, who prefers stuffing his mattress to banks. Cashiers checks have been forged many times the past couple decades due to increased capability of printers. I lived in Virginia for a couple years; met many locals who do business in cash only.



Oh, sure, it's POSSIBLE. But if any internet tale ever failed the Occam's Razor test, this one does. I would be more inclined to believe that the guy with the cash was intending to hit every garage sale in Virginia to buy every dogs-playing-cards painting he could find.
