Whoa! NOW you opened a can of worms...


Doesn't your commandments cover systems?
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Dang, I'll never get out of the hole now. How can I apply the Martingale to this situation?

I don't know if the martingale comparison is valid but, you certainly appear to be in a downward spiral compounded by an inability to arrest your escalating crime rate and the seriousness of your offences.
You may regret telling that joke about lawyers.

Double the magnitude of your sins until you finally achieve redemption.
The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality.---George Bernard Shaw

I am still facing purgatory time for watching the Red Skelton show instead of Bishop Sheen. Plus skipping mass on Ash
Wednesday and showing up for school with ashes from the furnace on my forehead.
