Didn't know that..



He would give them unreal handicaps and even
give them odds, and he still won every time. He's
a rare gambler that never thinks about the money
when he plays, so he never chokes. Of course he
was also a scratch golfer, which didn't hurt.

Quote from " The Matrix"

Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon.That's impossible. Instead...only try to
realize the truth.

Neo: What truth?

Spoon Boy: There is no spoon.

Neo: There is no spoon?

Spoon boy: Then you'll see, it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

Is that really in the Matrix? Its a direct ripoff
of Zen.

Two monks are watching a flag flap in the wind.
One says 'Wind is moving.' The other says
'Flag is moving'. Just then the Master comes along
and says 'Mind is moving'.

Thats from Japan, about 800 AD.

I "Binged Matrix Quotes", that's where I got it. It's different than I remembered it.

All my spoons around here are bent, but so are the forks, I think it's just my aggresive eating though? That and really hard ice cream.

In craps , where money makes a difference, particularly for the DI is the start of the roll.

If you have a slight advantage, the only place you will have it is the 6 & 8. Lets say your
only a $12 6 & 8 guy. If the number is 5 and you take double odds and place $12 6 & 8
you have to throw 3 &6 & 8) out of the the first ten rolls and then you cant break even if you dont
hit the 5. No one or atleast no i know has a SRR of 10, so if you cant make money on
33% 6 & 8 your screwed.

You have to bet enough on the 6 & 8 to make a profit on 3 hits.

My opinion is if you cant afford to bet enough to take advantage of your roll, or put
you in the best position to win, you just cant afford to play the game.

IN a completely random game, the decision is easy, you just hope you or someone
else gets a good roll before your broke.
