HA HA HA!!! Well done, Creeko! This one had me wailing out loud laughing! And it's a perfect pic of Johnny's face.

This may be your best photoshopping yet Creeko. Bravo. Too bad it's true and Roche will never see it.  
P.S. Happy Thanksgiving motherfarkers. Muffin and I are cooking a turkey today and tommorrow we'll celebrate Thanksigiving all over again at her Aunt's place on Kauaii.

I repeatedly called Johnny an asshole yesterday... he is completely nonchalant about not getting online, completely forsaking his friends. I practically had to beg him to come gaming tomorrow night. I say we ditch this dud and get some new friends....

Do you guys still talk to Johnny on a regular basis? I get the impression from Jack that talking to Johnny is now a rare event. It used to be a thrice-daily activity. Bone and Ross, are you still in contact with him. I don't hear anything about him. I am a little concerned. His he completely ignoring his friends, or just on JA?

(in my best mobster voice:) He's DEAD to me!  
I don't think any of us talk to Johnny much anymore, and when I do see him he doesn't have that bounce in his step. He's a "working stiff" now.  
In all fairness he did show up last night for gaming. But looked tired and not at all there because he wanted to be. Halo night seemed more like a commitment he had to take care of. Sure enough, a scant 2 hours later (9:30) he was done and left. The rest of us -- including Bertstain and Snerk -- continued to play until 12:30 or so. Between the 12 (!!!) of us there was much fun and jackassery had, but sans Bells.

I still talk to Johnny, though it's tougher since I never know when he's going to be home. He hasn't dropped off the map or anything, but he claims that he has his routine (his cheese is where he wants it and nobody better move it) and getting on the computer is not part of it. I explained that that's how we mainly keep up with each other and besides that it can be funny when the cuts start flying and he agreed but still didn't seem super enthused.  
However, Halo 2 was sweet! I enjoyed the hell out of myself even if I didn't get to whup on some Johnnybells. Though I must say that it really puts you in your place when one of the top scorers is consistently a little girl.

By the way, it's no Halo 2, but if you guys have ever played foosball and thought you were sweet, think again:

How many hours a day, for how many years do you suppose it takes to acquire that kind of foosball expertise? That was amazing though...
From: The Bone Entered on: November 28, 2004 8:15 PM
10,000 hrs. That's the standard to be elite in any endeavor.
From: Ross Entered on: November 28, 2004 9:26 PM
I have heard the same. That equates to 5 years, 40 hours a week, with 2 weeks off a year for vacation. Of course if you talk to Roche, natural talent is all that matters and practice is a secondary consideration.
From: Swerb Entered on: November 28, 2004 10:59 PM
Yeah, and these guys don't be spinnin' or nothin'.
From: John Entered on: November 30, 2004 9:29 PM
Natural talent most certainly accounts for much when it comes to being good at certain sports. TallPat could play basketball for 10,000 hrs and never be as good as Jordan for example. George Foreman once said of punching power, "you either have it or you don't". All I was saying is that two people can train for 10,000 hrs at a given sport and the one with more natural talent will always be better. So talent is a major factor when it comes to the elite in any endeavor.
From: Ross Entered on: November 30, 2004 9:33 PM
Sure, but the main point is that very few people even put in the requisite 10,000 minimum. Therefore, practice has far more to do with success than genetics in most cases.
From: John Entered on: November 30, 2004 9:42 PM
I'll concede to that, however quite a few elite athletes are also gifted in the genetic department.
