Like the younger player who sometimes loses to an older player, it is usually experience that is the determining factor in the game itself. Of course, all parties in the game gain experience with each encounter, but it is the wiser player who uses it for future reference who benefits most.
In my journeys to AREA 51, I often see things that absolutely bewilder me. Recently, I saw three guys who happen to be within earshot and I overheard them say something about another guy who was with a good looking young woman. None of them could believe why the woman was with that particular guy.
I glanced over at the young man. He was wearing a jacket and and slacks. He lit the young woman's cigarette and when she got up to go to the restroom, he stood up as well, removed her chair from her path and walked her to the restroom door.
I looked again to the three guys as the couple walked past them. Two of them were wearing baggy shorts, two of them were wearing flip-flops and all of them wore T-shirts.......on a Saturday night. I turned back to the bar, took a sip of my Johnny Walker Black and just smiled.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming
There was a papa mole, a mama mole, and a baby mole. They lived in a hole out in the country near a farmhouse. Papa mole poked his head out of the hole and said, "Mmmm, I smell sausage!" Mama mole poked her head outside the hole and said, "Mmmm, I smell pancakes!" Baby mole tried to stick his head outside but couldn't because of the two bigger moles. Baby mole said, "The only thing I smell is molasses."
Once there was an old man sitting on a bench in the park crying. A younger man walked up to him and asked "What's wrong?" The old man replied "I am married to a sexy 21 year old woman and we have sex the minute I get home from work and right after dinner." The young man had a strange look on his face and asked "What's so bad about that? It sounds to me like you have a great sex life." The old man replied "I can't remember where I live!"
During her annual checkup, the well-constructed miss was asked to disrobe and climb onto the examining table. "Doctor," she replied shyly, "I just can't undress in front of you." "All right," said the physician, "I'll flick off the lights. You undress and tell me when you're through." In a few moments, her voice rang out in the darkness: "Doctor, I've undressed. What shall I do with my clothes?" "Put them on the chair, on top of mine."
