I was checking my Buddies point totals today, and it hit me! Let's see who has the best poker hand made up of your Total Points. Zeros absolutely don't count, except for the last digit of the point total, and the hand can go as high as the Buddies points.
*
A point total of 597,860 would be a 6 card straight. A point total of 678,095 would not be a straight, because the zero isn't in the last position. 6 of a kind, 7 carded straights, and more are possible.
*
For example, DenverDonJuan this morning has 2,525,225 points. That is 3 fives and four deuces. A beefy hand. Can you beat it?

Total points = 2,860,420.

7 numbers - Tiara (Even, x4) - (2(x2),4,6,8,Zero(x2)).
6 numbers - Scaffold (Even, x2) - (2,4,6,8,Zero(x2)).
5 numbers - Even (2,4,6,8,Zero).

[Good Monday, all.

Nippor, It can be easy to confuse the Even and the Odd hands. Although you called it its correct name, and listed the correct numbers. Good job, Pool today?

Had a nasty headache Sat. night. That's why I was delayed posting on Sunday. Actually had 2.5 cigarettes on Sunday. Am working it down though. Don't want to stop if I don't have to, but having the headaches is causing domestic discord.]

Yep, I had ODD x2 for the Bewilderment last night. Must have been in another world when I wrote "Even x2"! ;)

Congrats, DTM!!!! WOW! I am so impressed! You rock! What amazing willpower you have, going down so quickly. That takes determination, willpower, and the ability to get thru those awful withdrawals.

Hang in there, you can do it! Breathe deeply, pet the cat, and have another slice of Barb's birthday cake! :)

Haven't smoked today. Am ready to sleep a long time. 3 days of withdrawl would be okay, but it doesn't work that way. At least not yet. Eventually they'll release the secret ingredient that controls stopper's anxiety.]

Nippor, went to the Olive Garden for lunch yesterday. The food tasted good, but the night was long and unpleasant. Can't hardly go out without getting "additives" to make the food taste better. Anyway, have cut down to a point with the smoking. Had 6 cigarettes on Wednesday, and 5 yesterday. So far today, I've had 3. Not in love with the patches, and was able to stop using an anti-depressant prescription a number of years ago. I get anxious about stopping, and the mind games go crazy. So far, the best thing can do is stay away from restaurants. And breath. And drink water. And pet the cat.]

It's supposed to continue getting hotter and hotter here thru next week! Supposed to get up to 102 here on Saturday, Sunday, AND Monday, with highs close to that the rest of the week! One last shot of summer, I guess! Hope I'm able to fit in more swimming while it's still hot. Thinking of heading out to the pool NOW! :)

Thirsty Thursday Points: 906,870

I think this is called "Dire Straights". A 5-numbered straight x2: 6,7,8,9,0 (Zero x2).

Hope that's correct. :)

DTM, I hope you are able to reduce the amount of smoking you do. Are you using any tools to assist in that process, such as the Nicorette (or similar type) gum? Or the patch? I know it won't be easy, but reducing and/or eventually quitting totally is a goal worth striving for! I'll be happy to cheer you on as you work towards that goal! :)

I am fortunate that I wasn't touched personally by the events of 13 years ago. Best wishes to the families of those that were.

Nippor, I've had doctors tell me to limit my exposure to monitors and television in general. Too much EM isn't good for anyone. The mornings are generally the best time to tackle computer tasks.]

Thank you for the concern. I'm not sure what the answer is yet, but I'm working on reducing my smoking. It is the last consistent variable in this equation. It's smoking, or it's probably the result of brain concussions in my past. Tracking the numbers.

Oh, good! I thought I was missing something obvious. ;) I was wondering if your headaches were making it difficult for you to look at the screen. If that's the case, no one will be upset if you take a day or two off. (At least I know it wouldn't bother me a bit!) We all need some down time occasionally, and when you're feeling awful, the last thing you want to do is look at a screen and have to THINK! So, DTM, no worries! :)

Feel better!
