Business, Bullshit, BINGO!

I saw this on the Internet and have to admit that it is the best idea I've seen in a long time. Kudos to whoever came up with it.

Do you keep falling asleep in meetings and seminars? What about those long and boring conference calls? Here's a way to change all of that.

1. Before (or during) the next meeting, seminar, or conference call, prepare yourself by drawing a square. I find that 5" x 5" is a good size. Divide the card into columns-five across and five down. That will give you 25 one-inch blocks.

2. Write one of the following words/phrases in each block:
Synergy, strategic fit, core competencies, best practice, bottom line, revisit, expeditious, to tell you the truth (or "the truth is), 24/7, out of the loop, benchmark, value-added, proactive, win-win, think outside the box, fast track, result-driven, knowledge base, at the end of the day, touch base, mindset, client focus(ed), paradigm, game plan, leverage.

3. Now check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those words/phrases.

4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally stand up and shout "BULLSHIT!"

The prevention of underage gambling and identifying and helping problem gamblers is a core objective in running an integrity driven online gambling operation. Gambling at blackjack, or any other Online Casinos Extreme game for that matter is a great form of leisure and entertainment, but for some it can potentially be dangerous.

Some of your articles are very inteesting some not, but overall your blog rock's man.

holdem poker
(European Poker Tour) and are convinced that 80% of good hands to play slow play, at third hand is a texas holdem poker and free poker bankroll, and 72 off-suit under the gun ( Under the Gun position) must always conquer that opponents will not be able to fathom.

Following the above, the game is not boring, there are many levels of thinking and interesting poker online plays, reading your opponents hands, but all it really takes off and is based on a solid poker.
So it looks like ABC? The following three basic principles which should not break the game, ABC:
- Play online poker only good hands
- No Bluff! Poker Gratis sin deposito
If you have a good hand firmly place a bet!
1 Just play good hands
Only good hands, that is, about 15% of all chips before the flop (so only 15%). So all the pairs, no deposit bonus plus a few other systems of the later items. Why all the pairs?

Because no deposit poker are obviously very good and everyone knows it, and low are very easy to play: you hit a set and bet heavily or do not hit a set and fit. And this is where philosophy. Of course, if someone strongly raised, and then someone else killed it should be low (or even medium) pair of discarded because it is no longer profitable to collect the set.

But at this point low and middle pair are no longer a good hand (for piercing the enemy is certainly even better) and the idea was to only poker play good hands in a given situation.
