Conversation that ensued after Phil Galfond(skinsftbl) sat down at a Step 5 Higher table. This is a old post from 2+2 forum that i thought you mobsters would enjoy.
Phil - I fixed it to make it more readable. It starts out a little slow, but I'm just reeling him in. I spice it up towards the end....

That's some crazy azz stuff and pretty sick to actually think it happened. I know one thing! I wouldn't eat my own poo for $100,000 cash on the spot. There's just some things that to ridiculous. To even think money could make one do it. Yuk!

i once said to my nephew that i would give him 5 pounds if he spat on the badge of his celtic football top, (bearing in mind he's been a celtic supporter for over 20 years and that i am an ardent Rangers supporter for over 40) well he just took off his top and duly spat on the badge turned to me and said "where's my fiver" so i gave him it whilst roaring with laughter, just shows you what people will do for money,eh. By the way i would NEVER do that to my Rangers top for any price!!!
