Quote of the day:
"The more opportunities you take advantage of,
the fewer that will come your way." -- me
No, I'm not being some fatalistic pessimist here.
It's about trust and expectation. If you turn a situation
to your benefit the moment someone lets you, they'll
be more guarded around you in the future.
Play for fun, not to win. People will be more willing
to play with you and you'll benefit more in the long run.
