Id be on my yacht with my supermodels.



Yes people will always question something about another person.  BUT I can say that VAN has always had alot of knowledge and has always been up front.  I dont question him and at the same time its none of my business.  Its his life at the end of the day.  So he can say and do anything he wants.  

So I dont think people should look for holes in a story but instead take the knowledge he gave you and do what you want with it.  Who cares what he has or dont have.  I care about him helping others out and I think he has done that.  If one person can gain something from this then the thread has worked.  He spent alot of time doing this and its greatly appreciated

Not sure if this was asked.

Do you watch all the games you play.

Since you are a disciplined player do you still feel that gamblers buzz on every game or is it strickly business.

I assume you get the buzz on the large plays or maybe not.

Im jumping out of order to address this only to cut it off at the pass...

I didnt post my answer to the question to start a political debate.  Someone asked me a question, and I answered it honestly.  I avoid political debates here, and recently decided to avoid religious ones too.  I was honest in my answer, and I have very well thought out reasons for my answer.

If you feel differently, great - that is what makes the world go round - but not this thread.

How do you balance the demands of handicapping, watching games - presumably most in the evenings and weekends, and ensuring family doesn't feel second fiddle to a life of gambling?

Thanks for the responses Van!!!  I agree with you about the birds and their perception of time, I just think its a cool thing to think about... because really, how do we know that time is the same for everything?

And of course you don't eat much sugar, you're not consumed by the culture around you.  I'm sure you eat less than me, but I've cut back to almost nothing that is overly sugary --- and then I throw it all down the drain because I drink red bull, and I'm afraid of the sugar free.  My question was more about if you knew that a pack of sugar is 2g to 4g... because I find this amazing!!!!  Think about all that sugary garbage that has like 60g of sugar in a generous portion... that could be 30 friggin packets of sugar.  That's absurd.  How could you possibly need that much sugar for say, a can of ginger ale.  You don't have to answer this.  Let me think of a new question....


Got one.  Okay, got a few... so you don't work at all?  Do you do the typical 'man jobs' around the house like cutting the grass or do you pay some kid to do it?  Or do you pay a real lawn service to do it?!  Do you have a lawn??

Does your wife have a job?

Scratch that, lets not get into your wife.

How do you keep yourself busy during the day?  What time do you wake up?  How much do you weigh?  Are you what would be perceived as 'lazy' or what would be perceived as a 'hard worker'... or are you a 'smart worker' that stays somewhere in the middle?  I recently graduated from college and I gotta say, if I spend 6 more friggin months without having a job to occupy most of my time I would have lost my mind.  It was nice sleeping in all the time, my 'job' being to go sit in a classroom for about an hour and a half a day, and just getting high and trying to have some fun in between... but after a while its just miserable, your free time quickly turns into time spent wishing you had something better to do, while when you work yourself to death you appreciate the time off even if your not doing something great with your time.  Would you agree?

Do you have a new dog since Van and Zack?  I had a dog named Zack.... good dog.  I think you and I should seriously get together if you are ever in PIttsburgh, I think it would be pretty interesting for both of us... you hang out with a young 'kid' who talks a little too much but has a decent head on his shoulders... I hang out with an older guy who is intelligent but doesn't know how to relax completely and try to get him to smoke some fine fine weed.  Come on!

I was around during the "vanzack owns a yacht and bangs super models" thread … aka "the thread that never ends".

Personally, I thought it was 'vaguely obvious' that most of what vanzack wrote within that thread was satire. He was serious enough to keep most people guessing, but I don't believe that he wrote anything in there without a smile on his face.

Anyone who could read post #69 in this thread, and the whole rest of the thread, and not get the joke......   I cant help you.

Epic, epic, epic.    I was just getting into this thing called the general discussion at the time, and I remember thinking I'm glad I found it when I did because I had a feeling that thread was something special.  Classic!


Here's a question: What is VaughnK/equalblueberries' latest alias?

Thread success by Covers, 70K views. Both sides win. At the end of the day, it's all about hits anyway.

Wonder how many of them were unique views though ... would guess most were wrigleywagers hitting F5 all day long

Do you agree with the saying that a man with two first names can't be trusted?

(i.e. Chris Paul)

I have a futures bet on STL Cards UNDER 86.5 wins -120. My book is now offering it at 83.5 now (with wainwright gone) Over -105.

Ive thought about middling here...if my -120 was a better price..I probably would have pulled the trigger..

your thoughts for an 84 85 86 middle?

He has a better chance of hitting the middle of the following bet:
St Louis Cards win total UNDER 85.5
St Louis Cards win total OVER 85
