So, it was that point in the "argument" that you realized you had just wasted 15 minutes of your life that you would never get back. Great story, BTW!
it was at that point in the argument that I relaised this man, in all likelyhood, had never really gambled. He claims to have lost thousands playing slots
. but I doubted it.
someone told me later he lost 2k playing once.
I'll use the mathematically proven formula of F=s/bs (fact = story divided by BS) to determine that the 2k was probably €150 or so, and it was the only time he gambled.
It was just the level of hatred to me for playing poker. Not sympathy or warnings, or advice or anything normal. but pure hatred because I admitted to gambling.
like with most things, people just do not like what they themselves are unfamiliar with or don't understand. So they will either attack it or belittle it. So they belittle poker playing as being lazy and not contributing.
th emost ignorant of this type of person will simply ignore all atempts to improve their knowledge.
Like when you try to teach your gran how to use a VCR
"Oh, i just don't get all this modern technology"
Gran, you just push the red button to record"
"Its all very difficult and complicated."
