Split or Steal?
Have you seen Goldenballs?
Briefly, a jackpot fund is built up through a combination of luck, lies and stupidity. All but two players are eliminated and the final two blindly select the winning total in a silly round of chance plus drama.

Each player then decides whether to split the pot or take it all. If they...

I do not understand such acts of wanton vandalism!

People who build model railways spend hundreds of pounds on them, and give hours of time to layouts etc., To see it all laid waste in this manner must be really heartbreaking.

Is the Universe Objective?
This is a question I raised in another thread.

It seems to me that the notion of the relative does not make sense in an objective universe with absolute coordinates.

There are some physicists who have supported the mental universe hypothesis. But I do think a mind based universe is very weird. It does resolve...

Each player then decides whether to split the pot or take it all. If they both try to steal they get nothing.

The only certainty then is if the other player chooses Steal, you cannot win. So successfully splitting requires mutual trust.

Some people choose to Split if it's a low total. Most people choose to Steal if it's high. But I haven't seen anyone play the way logic demands: There is an implied additional option that doesn't depend on trust that everyone seems to have missed.


What would you do?

I tried playing the above word in scrabble but it was not allowed, checking the scrabble dictionary I also discovered that 'Tenish' is not in there either, surely these are common words used often, (of ten!) eg Twelvish, sixish etc, how come they not in there?

Also was unable to find 'Queenie/Queeny' , although the word is allowed it dooesn't mention that it is a card game, we used to play it when we were kids, can't recall the rules now though.

"They hate us because of Brexit" etc etc and so on and so on... and so convinced was I of the inevitable outcome I didn't even bother to watch the voting. (I usually skip the actual songs and just watch the voting)

But hold on a sec: The only country that gave us points in the public vote was Ireland - an EU colony justifiably worried about what Brexit may mean for them. Doesn't really chime with idea that UK coming last - again - is revenge for Brexit. And I gather everyone hated the Master Race's entry too.

Could it be that the songs we send to this contest are basically just shit after all?

That Charleston type thing we sent a little while ago was I thought a pretty good song but could not have been performed more badly on the night. Other than that, we've been offering up some real crap for quite a long time now.
The UK produces great music and most of what you hear on pop stations throughout Europe, including the EU, is British, but we have a habit of sending garbage to Eurovision. I'd like to think it's because we don't take it seriously, but something tells me far too many of us do. Probably the same people who think the X-Factor is culturally significant.
