Yep, fair enough !

I've hit 3 RF's so far this year, which I believe is also SKEWED from a statistical perspective given how much I play ( Definitely not 3X the Cycle # of Hands ).

Not sure above post in right topic.

To stay on topic, here’s another great quote from a comedy novelist.

“Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.”

Terry Pratchett

Sadly, I live my life by that mantra. Any time that my wife asks me to do anything I always say, "ypu know, if I die tonight the last thing I will have done is dishes, mowed the lawn, cleaned the garage, etc. That all can wait until tomorrow, please let me enjoy what is possibly my last night alive."

Quote: wikipedia page

"May you live in interesting times" is an English expression that is claimed to be a translation of a traditional Chinese curse. While seemingly a blessing, the expression is normally used ironically

the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!”   She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

Oooh. I'm somewhat convinced squirrels have this "home base" area in mind if they feel threatened.. Because I've literally watched many panic, and even when they're on one side of the vehicle already, they will run right back in front of your car to get to it. Makes no sense, but I guess that's how you end up flat.

Also my sister will give you abdominal injuries from the seatbelt from slamming on the brakes if a squirrel runs in front of her car while you're a passenger.
