Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.


A Sadean take on Asimov's classic Three Laws of Robotics can be found in Roger Williams' NOW REVIEWED ON SLASHDOT!!! The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect.

anti-social media

Here at peachfront speaks, we can't be all hating on iTunes all the time. We can also take a moment to hate on Facebook.

Of course I'm only on Facebook because I was more or less ordered to be there to distribute my news/entertainment related articles. So I never unfriend anyone, except for one guy who left me some kind of hatey message. I think I'm entitled to unfriend a guy who attacks me. But otherwise if someone wants to be my friend, fine. So be it.

But sheesh Facebook is so boring. Most of the time only the bird/parrot people post stuff that's interesting. The rest of it is just sad, depressing, stupid, political, too much about babies or body functions, or boooooring.

It just seems like Twitter is better designed to allow you to avoid most of that crap without creating a scene and unfollowing the person.

But of course I do unfollow people on Twitter all the time, mainly to keep the size of my feed remotely balanced. It just doesn't seem to have the drama you hear about when people defriend someone on Facebook. If the Twitter unfollowed even notice, they just unfollow you back and move on.

And I have to admit it was a great moment when I dumped all the celebrities from my Twitter feed. Goodbye Amanda Bynes, Miley Cyrus, Chris Brown, and Donald Trump! Don't go away mad, just go away.

I'll admit that I did so many stories on Chris Brown that I do have a bit of empathy/compassion or whatever you like to call it for him. It just seems like there are so many traps put in his path to stop him from changing his life. But as for Bynes, Cyrus, Trump, and most of the rest, I really wouldn't shed a tear if they all participated in a re-enactment of Jonestown.

My only remaining celebrity, if he is a celebrity, is a good-looking happy person who tweets cute pictures. How hard is that?
