Ever read Ian Andersen's superb "Burning The Tables in Las Vegas"? Or have you read it, but it's been a long long time ago?

Although the book is a gem in its entirety, I often think about what it said about garlic. I'm big on garlic anyway, so I can't help but think of the two together, his book, and garlic. Garlic is discussed specifically on page 269, within Chapter 16, On Maintaining Physical and Mental Fitness. The whole chapter, like the book, is excellent. A must-read. Even if you don't play blackjack.
'Emergencies' have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded.

Garlic is indeed a wonderful thing, there never having been a civilization that did not produce a garlic-cookbook. Its an excellent antioxidant and wards off breast cancer if oxidized for twelve minutes orior to cooking. Black garlic is even more wondrous. However, i've not thought of it as much of a help in playing blackjack. I will be heading to the library today and will be sure to look for it.
