Ever hear that saying "It's an exercise in futility"? That's when you do an action over and over again, expecting different results even though nothing in the situation has changed. I call this playing electronic solitaire.
For some reason I think I've gotten smarted since the last time I've played...then reality sets in, and after I've lost - AGAIN - I get all optimistic and think, "Well, maybe next time" and start the cycle all over again.
At least I'm not playing for money.
