Un país de soñadores

Rompo un duradero silencio para reflexionar brevemente sobre el insomnio británico. Todos los días tengo clases a las nueve y media. Para estándares venezolanos esto es tarde, en la UCAB el horario matutino normal comenzaba a las 7. Dado el célebre tráfico de Caracas, esto requería despertarse a las 5 y media si querías tener alguna esperanza de llegar a la hora.

Acá en cambio, la persona que vive más lejos vive a media hora caminando del salón. Con despertarte a las 8 y media tienes tiempo para ducharte y desayunar cómodamente. Ahora deben estar esperando el punchline de esta entrada. Y es que nunca he visto a tanta gente cabecear o literalmente quedarse dormida en clases.

No puede ser porque la gente se queda hasta tarde bebiendo; todo aquí cierra a las 11. No es por lo aburrido de las clases; sino en la Católica se dormiría medio mundo. Tampoco es por falta de café, hay una máquina a un minuto del salón para quien quiera. Mi teoría es que aire acondicionado y sillas cómodas ponen a dormir a cualquiera. La comidad física del estudiante, entonces, es enemiga de su concentración. Mientras más a gusto esté en el salón, no se concentrará más, sino que se irá a dormir. Lo cual podría explicar lo incómodo del clásico pupitre: es una herramienta para garantizar que los alumnos estén despiertos hasta en las peores clases.

A ti tambien te esta afectando....debes estar muy comodo. Romper tu silencio el dia del 33 aniversario de la muerte de el gran Francisco comentando sobre pupitres es deplorable. Franco...!!! Franco...!!! Franco...!!!

Puede ser efecto de la paradoja del Estado de Bienestar, y la consecuencia inevitable de vivir en un país aburrido.

So I took the plunge -- bought myself a [url=http://www.ordio.com.au/products/Fatman-iTube-Red%252di-with-Speakers.html]Fatman iTube 252[/url] and I've gotta tell ya I am pleasantly surprised. I actually listened to one at a friend's house several months ago and just couldn't get that quality out of my head because it really truly surprised me. I searched online everywhere for a great deal and finally found it at [url=http://www.ordio.com.au]Ordio[/url] in Westfield Bondi Junction. I telephoned them first and asked every question I could think of and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and made the purchase. Dispatch was surprisingly fast. Everything was perfect. I'm pretty darn happy and I'm playing it right now. Not sure if they ship outside of Australia but you won't be sorry if they do.

Outstanding...

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
