So poker has been pretty bleh lately, I think I’m stuck like $8k for the month mostly from failed shot taking but such is poker. It’s important to keep things in perspective and realize that life is pretty damn good for me right now and I really shouldn’t be concerned with short term results of the game. I work <30 hours a week, I make my own hours, I vacation whenever I want (just got back from a weekend trip to the cascade mountains and had a pretty good time) plus I'm already up a pretty good amount for the year so far. Recently I've been spending a lot of time researching purchasing ATMs. If you didn't know individuals could even own ATMs you were just like me about five days ago. They seem like really good investments as they only cost like $4k and the payback period on them is usually 6 months - 1 year. Inventory is cash, which is obviously vastly superior to something like vending machines where you have to purchase all different kinds of food and keep it stocked, and profit margins are bigger. The hard part is finding a good location. If you want to find out more about the business you can read this free HOWTO and/or purchase this e-book. Both have been very informative so far.

Sometimes I get in strange obsessive moods and google/read everything I can find on a subject. Recently that topic has been the possibility of intelligent extraterrestrial life. I found a very cool podcast on it if it’s something you’re interested in learning more about (I just read the 30 page transcript). It talks about a lot of things like the Drake Equation, what would happen if we did have contact, why we haven’t had contact yet, what the definition of life is etc. Very cool stuff imo.
