My friend's band opened for Ice-T's side band Body Count. His tour bus pulled up to the club, but Ice-T & the band stayed inside but their roadies came out and helped set up the stage etc. Afterwards we were all talking and one of the roadies said "We like you guys, so we're going to give you a heads up. Ice-T is a pool shark, he'll try to take your money. If he wants a game, just tell him that you don't play."Important note - one of our friends was with is and his nickname was "Dummy". Based on that, you can probably guess where this is going.A few hours later, Ice-T comes into the club, introduces himself etc and almost immediately starts asking anyone if they want to play pool. All of us say no. Dummy says yes. As soon as he agrees, Ice-T starts pressuring him to play for money "$100 a game" and keeps on him, but in a rare moment of wisdom Dummy keeps saying no.They play anyway, and flip a coin to see who would break. Dummy wins. He's super nervous - and not a particularly good player to begin with. He flubs his break and sends the cue ball flying over the wracked-balls, hits the back cushion and ends up breaking the balls from behind. It was a fluke shot of the century, but Ice-T thinks that it was an intentional trick-shot and can't believe it. Dummy ends up playing the game of his life and beats Ice-T. Ice-T thinks that Dummy was being nice to him by refusing to play for money, he says things like "you could've hustled me out of $100 but didn't, I respect that". The two of them were inseparable for the rest of the night.

the people are awesome for the most part. It’s safe and secure. They are diverse and open to all types of immigrants. Work life balance is awesome. Friday’s are like 12pm pub lunch then leave the office at 3-4 to head back out to the pubs.
It has amazibg geography. From wine vineyards to mountains to beaches to islands to farms to deserts.
