It's too late to be losing money.

  1. Feb 19, 2006 #1
    About 4 hours ago I got a phone call asking me if I wanted to go to the casino. I said sure, if they drove. I've been waiting for the past four hours for them to get here. They just called and are on their way.
    I'm only taking $100. How long til I lose it all? I'll let you know when I get back. Plus give me 20 minutes to get there and 20 minutes to get back. They are here now. wish me luck.

    I just called a random telephone number and asked if they wanted to go to the casino. I said I'd drive. I'm planning on impaling a tricycle through their body in about 6 hours, then burying them next to the tree behind my neighbor's house. How ironic.

    I'm back. I didn't lose, but I only won 33 dollars.

    I see that tribdog can afford to blow money gambling, but won't fork over $25 to become a Golden PF member. :devil:

    The last time I went to a casino, I blew £150 in about 20 minutes. Wasn't a good night.

    Where was your advanced knowledge of probabilities, hmm?

    It's even worse than forgetting things I don't even know about, I'm a manager of a betting shop. I should know more than anyone the foolishness of gambling!

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Gambling is only foolish if the product of the payout and the odds is less than or equal to what you payed in. Then its foolish. Otherwise, over the very long run, you'll make money.

    I won't tell that to my customers, it's hard enough getting some of them to leave, if they knew that I'd be in trouble!

    of course, evo didn't say when she would kill it.

    So that was the secret all along: only he who created it could order it destroyed. I was battling natural order in vain!

    heh. Don't have to. She agreed just a little too fast. Trib should draw up a contract with full terms and conditions before he forks over the dough. :approve:

    Could she really be that manipulative and evil? I don't know why I bother to ask.

    Too late, the deal is sealed. I saw them spit and shake hands. You can't go back on a spitty handshake!
