    Great to Be Here!

    Hello there.

    This would be my first post--glad I found this place. I guess I could introduce myself *this is where everyone goes to another topic, or falls asleep and shorts out their keyboard!*

    My name is Dea, and I'm not nearly as great at Billiards as any of you here! I've been reading posts for a while, but not signed up, and I have such a respect for all of you. There is so much technicallity that goes into this game..that I play only for fun. It's a game that's been marvelously turned into a sport, but not just any sport, a very mind-boggling, unpredictable, and AMAZING one.

    I hope you accept me to this community with an open mind, that I am not a player, just simply a fan. I can play a decent game, but my "talent" apparently lies in painting, designing, and sketching. I hope to incorporate my love for billiards with my works of art soon enough.

    Nice to meet all of you, as I do, and hope all is well with you.

    Like my avatar? Made it myself(: haha.

    Well, I am best at 8-ball, but I prefer 9-ball as a challenge(:

    You?

    Welcome Dea,

    Most people's talents here are making a living just like you. Pool is a hobby/sport they like to play, some just take it a little more serious. Missouri eh? I have relatives back in them parts I use to live in your neighbor state, Kansas. This part of the forum, meaning "newbys" was meant for new people to ask questions about forums and such.

    It's ok though, but the main forums is not here. lol If your a pool player or watch your welcome. That's what we all do. There is a non pool related forum also, so join right in. And no I don't gotta pea, cute though. [img]/ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Re: Great to Be Here!

    Nine will always be my fetish, but I can play 8-ball. I just like the hunt for the next lower ball in nine, plus it is fast. Eightball games get to be a chess match now that BIH fouls exist, especially with some of the well studied safety kings(queens) who have perfected their skill. Many would rather hook you than run out...takes some of the fun away, and yet I CAN hook well. What area of Missouri are you from???sid

    Re: Great to Be Here!

    Haha, I make little icons like that all the time...something different than the usuals!(;

    Sid_Vicious, I live in the bootheel of Missouri. I live about 2 minutes from the Mississippi River. *yee haw? lol*

    There's really not any great billiards players around my area, that I'm aware of--so I usually end up playing friends, who's skill in the sport amounts to Stripes and Solids. Although I must say, it can be just as hard to play someone who has no idea what they are doing, as it is to play someone who can. Sometimes. heh.

    Take care,

    Dea

    I lived near the bootheel in Arkansas, Paragould-Rector area for a while, and made trips to Kennett, but that was many years back. Are you close to Kennett?

    Re: Great to Be Here!

    Hi Dea! I've got relatives out there too. Van Buren, Winona, Poplar Bluff and Mountain View. Beautiful country down there, but not a whole lot to do, LOL.

    Glad to see you posting. I don't post much anymore as the job seems to take precedence these days, LOL. But I love the game. Eight ball is my favorite, but my position play in 9 ball is getting better. Must be all that straight pool I've been playing!

    MAKE EASY AND QUICK CASH MONEY by doing almost nothing (NO JOKE, NO SCAM, AND VERY LEGAL) Please read on! You will be very thankful you did! A little while back, I was browsing through newsgroups, just like you are now, and came across an article similar to this that said you could make thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of $6.00! So I thought," Yeah, right, this must be a scam", but like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said that you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and address stated in the article. You then place your own name and address in the bottom of the list at #6, and post the article in at least 200 newsgroups. (There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it over, and talking to a few people first, I thought about trying it. I figured what have I got to lose except 6 stamps and $6.00, right? Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried about the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S. Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed legal! Then I invested the measly $6.00. Well GUESS WHAT!!... Within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked! I figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I made about $25.00. By the end of the second week I had made a total of over $1,000.00! In the third week I had over $10,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just over $42,000.00 and it's still coming in rapidly. It's certainly worth $6.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent more than that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most importantly, why it works.... also, make sure you print a copy of this article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it. STEP 1 Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each piece of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now get 6 US $1.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of paper so the bill will not be seen through the envelope to prevent thievery. Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal them. You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of paper stating the above phrase, your name and address, and a $1.00 bill. What you are doing is creating a service by this. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! This program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its success by carefully adhering to the instructions. You will now become part of the Mail Order business. Your product is simply a service of helping develop mail lists. Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:

    1.Kevin Prentice
    134 45 229 st. springfields Gardens
    Laurelton, NY 11413
    2.Enrique Acosta
    790 Delmonico St. NE
    Palm Bay, FL 32907
    3.Joseph Lombardi
    213 Maple Ave. apt. f 82
    Hirsham, PA 16503
    4.Demarco Landingham
    841 E. 18th st.
    Erie, PA 16503
    5.Daniel Yamamoto
    1813 Sandy Shore St.
    San Diego, CA 92139
    6.Erica Acevedo
    6427 Ivy Falls
    Missouri City, TX 77459


    STEP 2 Now take the #1 name and address off the list that you see above, move the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR Name and address as number 6 on the list. STEP 3 Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close to original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close to 24,000 groups) All you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you make! ---DIRECTIONS-----HOW TO POST TO NEWSGROUPS------------ Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own posting. Simply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter and drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and select 'copy' from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the computers memory. Step 2) Open a blank 'notepad' file and place your cursor at the top of the blank page. From the 'edit' menu select 'paste'. This will paste a copy of the letter into notepad so that you can add your name to the list. Step 3) Save your new notepad file as a .txt file. If you want to do your postings in different sittings, you'll always have this file to go back to. Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites, discussions.) Step 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new message by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting paste from the edit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a particular group, click the post message button. You're done with your first one! Congratulations...THAT'S IT! All you have to do is jump to different newsgroups and post away, after you get the hang of it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup! **REMEMBER, THE MORE NEWSGROUPS YOU POST IN, THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL MAKE!! BUT YOU HAVE TO POST A MINIMUM OF 200** That's it! You will begin receiving money from around the world within days! You may eventually want to rent a P.O. Box due to the large amount of mail you will receive. If you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as long as the postman will deliver it. **JUST MAKE SURE ALL THE ADDRESSES ARE CORRECT.** Now the WHY part Out of 200 postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low example). So then I made $5.00 with my name and address at #6 on the letter. Now, each of the 5 persons who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 200 postings, each with my name and address at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each of the original 5, that is another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each make 200 MINIMUM posts with my name and address at #4 and only 5 replies each, I will bring in an additional $125.00! Now, those 125 persons turn around and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name and address at #3 and only receive 5 replies each, I will make an additional $626.00! OK, now here is the fun part, each of those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with my name and address at #2 and they each only receive 5 replies, that just made me $3,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will all deliver this message to 200 newsgroups with my name and address at #1 and if still 5 persons per 200 newsgroups react I will receive $15,625,00! With an original investment of only $6.00! AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the list, you just take the latest posting in the newsgroups, and send out another $6.00 to names on the list, putting your name at number 6 again. And start posting again. The thing to remember is, do you realize that thousands of people all over the world are joining the internet and reading these articles everyday, JUST LIKE YOU are now!! So can you afford $6.00 and see if it really works?? I think so... People have said, "what if the plan is played out and no one sends you the money? So what! What are the chances of that happening when there are tons of new honest users and new honest people who are joining the internet and newsgroups everyday and are willing to give it a try? Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual internet. Remember, play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will work. ALSO REMEMBER*** : : SEND YOUR $1 OUT TO EVERYONE ON THE LIST, : : EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT FROM THE U.S. : : WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??? : : : : GOOD LUCK!! go to google.com and search for MAKE MONEY FAST AND EASY$$ and you will find alot of message boards !MAKE MONEY FAST AND EASY$$
