    keep your curve down. That is the biggest mistake I see people make. Also try and pick good cards not necessarily synergistic cards. Most 1 drops are not worth anything.

    Curve down? As in trying to get a good spread of cards, instead of quite a few 2-4 drops, and fewer 5+ drops? Either way I've probably got some reading ahead of me to improve. And yea I have to kick the habbit of picking synergistic cards. They can be oh so very hit or miss. And it seems more often than not that your opponent has an answer for it.

    I've also noticed that in the Arena, I'm for some reason more willing to take hits in order to hopefully get a card I need. Sometimes doing it to the point of the match just becoming an instant loss. Like instead of just playing the cards I have and trading them, I'm holding on for the synergistic combo to come up. Problem is by the time it does, even when I do play it, the board advantage he has is enough to just wipe out the combo anyway. I'm not sure why this last train of thought suddenly crept up on me, as I never did that in normal play. Then again I didn't have access to that many synergistic cards, since I haven't opened all that many packs yet. Maybe just seeing all these fancy cards in the arena made me go a bit crazy. >_>

    Just the cards made you crazy? I think you where crazy before all those cards, I might be wrong though.

    Yea I was crazy before I guess, so those cards made me go completely bonkers. Either way it wasn't a good situation to be in. :P

There are cases where people honestly believe they can speak to the dead or are a palm reader or whatever, but this is ignorance and rarely do these people change their mind even if evidence is placed before them that they are lying (sucha s failing the million dollar challenge).

    What's worse than the money issue is the issue of ignorance, though. I don't just mean ignorance to the truth for the person providing the service... I especially mean the ignorance of the customer. An ignorant customer may accept homeopathy as a treatment and as a result forego other real treatments. This happens all the time and people die because of it. Sure the placebo effect is fine and all but a world that is less ignorant could receive placebo effects from other, less expensive things, or when applicable (always?) receive some kind of real treatment.

    /rant
    I never meant - as I hope you read - any alternative to replace real medicin. But in my experience doctors don't listen and don't give a **** about how you feel with whatever you're having. Decent alternative healers don't charge a lot.
    Maybe it's different over here, I don't know.
    Also there's so much fraud and people with bad intentions that it also does away with the ones who really only want to help and sometimes do - like a helpline people phone when in need. For some people, this works and while I think you should protect the feebleminded and desperate (they're not necessarily the same category) from fraud and your money being taken away for nothing, if you pay for someone for his time, what it boils down to as someone really listening, and there just happens to be a lot of decorum around it but it makes someone feel better (and it doesn't stop this person from getting real medicin!), then you only patronize people telling them what is good for them. And my ego's not so big that I can decide that.
    I will always point out flaws, fraud, dubious theories. But I've found that if often boils to someone really listening, even when paid for, and that that helps. It wouldn't be for me.

    Also, where's the line? With my complaints the doctors ran out of ideas and I was running out of money simultanously. One of my gp's suggested using highly concentrated ginger tablets. It kinda helps, not always but sometimes it does. Sometimes the line between herbal remedies and "real medicins" is thin.


    And how about this one. We all know you can't talk to the death.
    But what if someone genuinly believes he or she can?
    And what if someone is shocked and traumatized by the loss of a loved one, and believes in people being able to talk to the death?
    In an ideal situation this person will once hear that the loved one says all is well now, he is in a happy place, and wants the person to move on. You only need to hear that once, and that can give closure.

    A fraud will try to get a second visit out of this person, which serves no purpose of reassurance.

    I agree. Let's huddle under a blanket until help arrives. I brought hot chocolate!

    Finally he cuddles me. You'll find me toasty warm. There, isn't that better?

    It is pretty okay. But I think that might just be the hot chocolate.
