5 Rushes That Poker Gives You

Posted by on Jan 11, 2012 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Ladies and gents I would like to entice you into the deep dark world of online gambling. Many rate that this is simply a massive hole into which you shall sink all semblance of hard earned money and savings, but ladies and gentleman, I tend to disagree with such outlandish and blatantly rude statements.

Well not entirely, but I shall still not stand for such crass statements.You see there are many enjoyable moments when playing on online casinos, ones that you just can’t quite get in other ways.

The Bluff

The bluff can sometimes be one of the oldest, most bland trick, that very often doesn’t win you much because of the way that many people play their cards… See what I did there? It’s called a bluff, and I just sold you down the river! The bluff is one of the oldest tricks in the book, but by golly does this old bag of tricks keep bringing in the doe when done with the utmost expertise and excellence. The good old hood-winking will never leave you dry if you can surpass the status of blushing-idiot-who-scratches-his-head-every-time-he-has-a-good-hand and will bring you the title of Money Bags Big Bawler with lots of hoes in different area codes as the wise Ludacris and late Nate Dogg once said.

The High Stakes

You want adrenaline pumping through your veins as you pursue the high stake load bare before your greedy bluffing hands and this is exactly what playing poker can give you. The rush of out bluffing an opponent and managing to defeat them to take home the mountainous glory of winnings that is laid for all to see in front of you under the enormous amount of pressure. Yes, honey, you are more than welcome to come home with me in my new Ferrari now.

What my entry would have been for the Nokia N8 Competition

Posted by on Sep 27, 2010 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

So about a week or two ago there was a competition on iMod where you could win a Nokia N8 if you could capture a photo with the digit 8 in it. The most creative photo would then take home the N8 and be one of the first people in the country to get their hands on one. I didn’t enter in the end as I made a mistake at the competition entry dates so didn’t get my entry in in time. I found the photo the other day and thought I would share it anyway.

I don’t think I would have won, but I was still a bit disappointed that I messed up and didn’t even get the chance to get my entry in. Oh well. Maybe next time.

Nando’s Forced to Pull Ad

So I have finally seen the advert that is causing quite a storm in the media. I find the advert quite funny actually, but I will let you decide that for yourself.

I found this on news24

“The ANC Youth League on Tuesday called for the immediate withdrawal of the “disgusting” Nando’s television and radio advertisements.

The league said the advertisements used “cheap satire” to undermine electoral politics in South Africa.

“We are fully aware that the advertisement is intended at mocking the president of the ANCYL, and in a racist fashion portrays political leaders as cartoons.”

The television adverts feature a puppet named Julius – which could be a reference to ANCYL leader Julius Malema – who demands “change”.

The league said it has commissioned its lawyers to investigate.

Legal advice

“While awaiting the legal advice, the ANCYL instructs the Nando’s Company and those who did the advertisement to promptly withdraw the advert from all television screens and radio channels.

“If Nando’s does not withdraw the adverts, the ANCYL will mobilise the people of South Africa to take militant action against Nando’s and anything associated with Nando’s.”

Nando’s marketing manager Sylvester Chauke said Nando’s went with the political theme because “it is what is happening in the country at the moment”.

“Our advertisements are not a stab at Julius Malema at all. What is it that Nando’s said in the advert that is negative about him?… If only I could have an answer to that.””
