Internet Blackjack

Because I can't think of any content of my own, I'll just post up somebody else's and take it as my own!  It's genius, nobody has ever thought of it before.  Like the actual game blackjack, I'll deal out wins and busts to all who deserve it.  Hookers are blow are encouraged, not required.

Blackjack for Laubersheimer Industries for a fantastic post on comp.  It's a really good argument, I agree with it, and the delivery is delicious.

Bust for mkerr over at Chainfail for a shallow attempt to start up drama*.  I forget, when was he ever relevant and not a dickhead?  I wouldn't mind letting him get hit well after losing (translated into ITG: I'll punch him in the face!).

Natural Blackjack for YTTH for stirring up the proverbial hornets' nest (by hornets I mean asspained fluff bunnies and self-proclaimed tactical geniuses who use shitty armies and stomp on scrubs all day) with another edition of why Orks suck.  Lots of fun stuff there.

Bust at Tastytaste's table.  BloodofKittens, den of stupid that it is, delivers unto us a well thought out and thought provoking rebuttal to Stelek's unjustified and hateful claims.  Oh wait, no, it's just stupid.  SDF stupid.

So, that's my first edition of Internet Blackjack.  Remember, house always wins ;-)

*Note, it appears I have succumbed to it, so this may have actually been a great success on mkerr's part?  But then again, so am I by attempting to rile him up.  Reversal or reversal of reversal, only time will tell.  Also, mkerr is a gay fish.

Be fair, I have a scheduled post for later in the day that is clearly a winner... ;)

I have no idea what you're talking about. I am trying to keep my filthy mouth in check.

I think that Internet Blackjack is a great idea for an article, but you should do more with it than use it to perform reach-arounds on your friends.

Oh, and extend the metaphor. There are more than blackjacks and busts in the game. Win, loss, double down, split, insurance, etc.

And what's up with the content advisory? You put up some porn that I missed?

The blogosphere is all one big circle jerk at the best of times, I figured I could get a hand in as well. winkwinknudgenudgesaynomore

You know, that's a brilliant idea. I've never played blackjack outside of the stock games that come with computers. I may have to, gasp, actually do research. This isn't supposed to be work, just my place to make dick jokes and laugh at people.

Content advisories are statistically proven (I made that up) to draw in more readers for curiosity's sake. Same deal with the name (beyond being a silly Futurama reference). People open up a site called Blackjack & Hookers, see the explicit content warning, get really excited, then let down when it's just some nerd talking about nerd stuff. Hopefully the disappointment is so great they leave a comment calling me a fuckwit. So, to protect my readers from the harsh language, I put up a content warning.

But seriously though, thanks for the suggestion.
