Warren must have some interesting bridge games if that doesn't distract him.

He's old. D*ck probably doesn't work anyway.

More importantly, any naked woman playing bridge is probably old, wrinkled, and nasty. So, once again, he's smart enough to avoid.

I understand. It has to do with this experiment

If I'm playing bridge with Warren Buffett two naked chicks could start making out and I would not notice. I would be waiting for him to drop that one little nugget that would make me a millionaire.

/Okay, okay I would notice but I would use my peripheral vision.

Well, seems like there's a connection there. In other words, if I didn't give two shiats about whether I saw a naked women walk by, I'd probably be a hell of a lot richer. OK, maybe not a Warren Buffett level of wealth, but I would have saved a lot of money--not to mention time and effort--over the years that I otherwise spent on my lifetime quest to see, touch, and fark naked women.

Ironically the seeing, touching, and farking of naked women becomes easier when you are as rich as Buffett (Jimmy or Warren).

What I'd like to know is where he plays bridge that naked women just walk by.

I think he said that to get more naked women to walk by him while he "plays bridge".

NightOwl2255: I would be waiting for him to drop that one little nugget that would make me a millionaire.

I will do it for him:

Invest in companies which have the potential for cash flow. Invest in brand names. Invest for the long haul. If you are going to take a risk, hedge it with full control.

There is no secret to Warren Buffet's strategy - it's just common sense. Most people who lose their shirts know they are going to, but rationalize away the risk in hopes of unreasonable returns.

The piece in which he said this (as it states in the article) was on CBS Sunday Morning (which is probably my favorite show on TV, and the reason I get up early on Sundays). The two of them Gates and Buffett go into bridge tourneys, and it seems like they try to blend in with the common folk, which is pretty cool. The two of them have donated a million dollars to try and get kids interested in Bridge. It used to be a hugely popular game, and now it is dying.

The segment was great, as is the entire show every Sunday.

I guess that's why I'm poor, I'm easily distracted by nekkid-ness.

I said one nugget, not 4. Damn, can't even count!

I understand. It has to do with this experiment

I saw it, but then I was kind of clued in via the link page that something unexpected would happen, so maybe I wouldn't have if the experiment had been presented without that clue that something else was going on than just needing to count.

If a naked woman walks by while I'm playing bridge, then I surely notice here. I only count her as 2 points if she has two stoppers in her birthday suit, though.

My co-worker was stunned when I told her Warren Buffett was a multi-billionaire. She couldn't believe he'd still be touring if he was that rich...

Is it gay to wonder if Warren Buffett still masturbates?

They pretty much blend in. My nephew got his picture taken with Bill Gates and Buffett at a bridge tournament in Iowa and got a dollar bill autographed by both of them. My sister talked to Gates for a few moments and had no clue who he was at first.

God, I dislike bridge as much as you can dislike a card game.

Which probably means I shouldn't be an investor because it seems like there's a connection (patience, strategy, etc.).

There's a patch for that.

When I play bridge with Warren, he poops million dollar bills just to distract me. That's why he's rich, I guess,

Guy playing bridge + not noticing a nearby naked woman = GHEY.

Bridge is serious business.
