Thread: Simple Life Vs Possible Strife?

  1. #1

    Question Mark

    Ok...If you could take either:

    "Moderate house. Financial security (not loaded, just ok). A kid or 2. Trustable/comfortable partner. Mid range car/bike. Job security (though no real chance of it taking off in the future). Standard holiday once/twice a year. All guaranteed" *

    versus:

    A life of uncertainties/risks, where it could all go wrong, or very very right.

    At this point in time, which would you choose. And why?

    (* maybe you don't want or view kids or summat as simplistic in this list. Delete as appropriate to you)

    If its just me im looking out for, I'd do option 2 without hesitation.

    But since thats not the case, option 1 ftw! Although no partner of mine can ever stop me from putting down 10G in the WSOP in Vegas.

    I go for option 1, and i don't have another major person in my life. I'd be happy with the basic things, though would always wonder "what if?"

    Though, would also join you on the table if i had 10G. I don't know what WSOP is, but hell, sounds great!

    I like the idea of a risk, not a dead-cert that i will be the guy you mentioned! I am shite at poker. So many variations also.

    BlackJack, solitaire, hearts i can play. Chase the Ace and Snap also.

    I'd have a go at roulette though.

    What's $10,000, about 8. How much of a risk is that.

    I suppose I have 1 although the partner has left. I couldn't really undertake 2 as the kids rely on me to foot the bills - SGG and ebay =

    On reflection life has not been unkind and a great many cannot say that.

    You're an accountant ffs. How can life have been good.

    Perhaps the witchcraft has blinded you to the reality of your situation.
