- A small request: if you have any hands where you used PokerStars' "Run It Twice" feature, I'd be grateful if you could send me the raw hand history files. I want to add support for "Run It Twice" to Poker Copilot. You can send the hands to email@example.com
- The latest PCP Dallas update adds support for HeroBet (an Ongame Network room).

As with any pricey upscale service, you have many choices for your Extreme Kidnapping. You can even select your kidnapper. Adam offered me the standard goons, or I could choose a team of Elite Girls—sexy girl kidnappers who wear stripper platforms and microskirts. I declined the Elite Girl squad because (a) I'm married, (b) getting kidnapped by sexy ladies isn't exactly realistic, and (c) I'm not an idiot. Clients probably hire the Elite Girls thinking it would be awesome, only to find out that the girl kidnappers are ten times more sadistic.

Someone invented clothing that hides you from drones. And an arms race ensues...
Today I learnt that the island of Yap (it's real - it is now part of the Federated States of Micronesia) used to have as currency carved stoned so big you couldn't move them. True story. I think.
Its coins, the rai, look like stone doughnuts. Some are fairly portable, the size of actual doughnuts, but others weigh as much as a couple of cars. The process of producing these things, 250 miles across the sea in the quarries of Palau, used to be a gigantic effort – a Victorian naturalist witnessed a tenth of Yap’s adult male population digging these things out of the ground and sailing them back to Yap.
