Trevor wants to learn poker and Karl is just the guy to teach/corrupt him! The guys begin talking about gambling and the feelings one gets when gambling (spoiler alert: it's usually bad feelings). Trevor goes on to talk about his desire to accumulate new skills in life like hunting and sailing, while Karl recaps his experience playing music for 6 hours in a row while disinterested runners ran the Seattle Rock and Roll Marathon right in front of him. In many ways, all of these activities are the channeling of attention and focus into something extreme, be it endurance exercise, money risk, or creative endeavors. Trevor himself has recently gotten in to running, which is actually something he hates to do. But as a sadist, he enjoys the victory of dominating the lazy side of himself and uses it as fuel to keep going. Trevor and Karl also discuss the meaning of life.
