    Who else was keeping their powder dry for Deeproot??? Well, I was, but not anymore. Given the latest news, they lost my $10k+ I was reserving for their assumed November reveal. I spent that 10k+ like a kid in a candy store! Sorry Robert, I held out for a while, but you guys dropped the ball. I am sure Stern is thanking you as I assume they will benefit the most. If only Jack could get GNR on the line ASAP!!

    Monday night is always a nice night for a cool, refreshing adult beverage. Pouring myself one now.

    Powder dry? Is that Northern slang for something?

    Quoted from MeNaCeFiRe:

    Original reference to gunpowder in the 1800s.
    In pinball, holding cash in ones wallet.

    In this case, not deep rooting deep root.

    You’ve heard of “dry powder” which is cash or liquidity. Well that expression comes from being prepared to strike at anytime or Keeping your powder dry.

    I limit myself to just the days ending in “y”.

    Financial term. In Berkshire Hathaway Warren Buffet has about 100 billion of “dry powder” waiting for opportunities to buy stocks on sale

    In this case, cash reserved for pinball

    It’s from much earlier than the 1800’s. On sailing warships gunpowder was kept in barrels. Once opened they became wet and useless after a few days due to the sea. So if you were going into battle, you’d better be damned sure that you needed your powder before you busted open one of those barrels.

    Not really a big fan of any of their titles so not saving up no.

    I do hope the Deep Root gang are paying attention.

    All of their hype has been geared to appeal to least emotionally balanced among us - those who wake up every morning praying for their "Jesus Pin." Indestructible playfields! 200 new innovations! Literal smoke, mirrors, and lightning!! 15 new titles!!! 10-year warranties!!!

    The people they've most deeply and emotionally connected to with this pitch are also those who are least emotionally equipped to handle the inevitable disappointment that comes with all pinball reveals.

    When they FINALLY reveal games, and it turns out they are not in fact life-changing, religious experiences, and are actually just pinball machines, it's going to be tough for these folks to handle. I mean you see it right here - a meltdown because they haven't even REVEALED yet! Can you imagine what happens when the games are actually shown to the public and it turns out what they promise is short of actual spiritual enlightenment?

    So what do you do then? You just throw in with the Sterns, the JJPs, and the spookys of the world - you know, people who just make ordinary old pinball machines, not world-altering experiences that rival anything the prospective buyers have ever known in their empty lives.

    And how is that going to play out? The world is already full of companies who provide that to buyers.

    On the 875th day of Deep Root, when the reveal finally happens, I'm going to be a bunker somewhere just to be safe.

    I keep my powder dry just in case the 80s ever happens again.

    We're not worthy!

    If you want to learn how us Texans refer to this concept, go check out the song “nights pay in my boot” by the great max stalling. Good life lesson in this tune and also references “keeping your powder dry”. Here is link: https://open.spotify.com/track/6q82pdcKcdVvwsmBcYItP0?si=Ib72lgpbSRKR0wSm-JqJjQ

    Only positive comments welcomed. Lol

    Nothing new just continued delays in showing anything. No news is not good news in this case.
