After the count went neg, I wonged out and started another fresh shoe at another table, heads up. Guess who comes, too. The casino was unusually empty for the number of tables open, so I did a lot of jumping around. My "partner" followed along each time.

Of course his bad play didn't bother me, but he was as slow as hell, and that did bother me.

Ever experience anything like this? How do you dissuade someone like this from joining your table? This place only had MSE tables.
Can't blame him. You initiated a very beautiful friendship-to-be.

It happened to me a lot. I frequently gave people wrong signal that I need a friend. But the truth is that most people on Earth are lonely.

Why can't you be a mentor to him?

Vomit on said person.

Blow smoke in that general direction.

Reveal that you are not wearing any underwear. Don't stop there, proceed to explain why you believe that underwear is unnecessary.
these topics are known for working on and gathering idiots, not getting rid of him. Would have been the right answer to "how do I exploit him?" but close. more effective if you add some negativity. Bring up controvertial issues then whatever he says tell him hes wrong and story stupid for thinking that

I know of one particular store in PA that hires shills to watch suspected APs. This was verified from a friend of mine who works at this store

Shills are generally not well-paid or particularly bright.

So, it is vaguely unnerving to me how many problems can be solved in the world of APs by vomiting on the appropriate person and/or object (see pg 96 of the book for a further example of the utility of vomit).

Me too, but you have to show the man who became a legend for being a dirty (quite literally) bastard at least a little love.

That was a very moving and beautiful thought on your part, worthy of serious consideration.

But some are gorgeous.

Didn't some of the MIT guys fall for that?

In answer to the question posed by the thread title: sort of. I wouldn't say he was my own stalker.
