Poker Chip Riffling - Update #2


A friend of mine achieved something miraculous at a recent home game (OK, it was really two somethings). He successfully combined two stacks of 11 poker chips ("riffling"). And then he did 12. It was extremely impressive. I am way behind that. I've improved to where I can riffle two stacks of 8 fairly regularly, and one time I managed to accurately riffle two stacks of 9 enough times to mix them up and completely separate them.

It was very exciting.

I can also report that a neighbor here at the office (I do my chip riffling in the office. During conference calls.) fumes at the noise. Apparently the sound of that clicking carries pretty good off my wood desk. She sends me emails with subject headings like "STOP THAT" and "CLOSE YOUR DOOR." She leaves the body of the email blank.

She's economic with her commands.

I love it when women tell me what to do.

Riffling is about the only thing that gets me though conference calls.

I've managed 2 stacks of 10 before, but it was with my favorite chips on my desk. I find riffling more difficult with particular kinds of chips.

Riffling and blogging...you do about as much work at work as I do.

I billed 260 hours this month on top of all my hobbies. I think I slept materially less than that!

Way to stimulate the economy!!

You work too hard. Go get a nice cushy in-house job and take it easy for a while.

I want a nice cushy in-house job. Where do you get those?

I have seen plenty of in-house "jobs" in my days walking the line. They aren't all their cracked up to be.

We generally let the inmates do what they want to in their own cells, though.
