This made me howl.



In the mid-nineteenth century in England a hospital doctor discovered by accident that if he washed his hands with and soap and water in between delivering babies both the mothers and the babies we're healthier later on and had less sickness. He experimented and scientifically showed that washing your hands with soap and water was indeed a medical breakthrough. When he explained this to his fellow doctors he was practically laughed out of the profession. They howled, they screamed with laughter and called him a moron and many other names as well. 20 years later every doctor in every hospital around the world was washing his hands with soap and water in between operations all because of this doctor in England. So howl all you like..

Since we have hidden threads is it possible to make hidden members.

Send EB to join the hidden threads? For gambling misinformation?

Let me put it in a way you might understand, though I am doubtful.

Quintessential EB, start an explanation with a thinly veiled insult...

EB is mentioning true stories but erroneously comparing his theories as being in the same class.

So far in one day EB has compared himself to Galileo and this doctor.

EvenBob is 100% correct. I will never watch the thousands, or tens of thousands of spins on a live Roulette wheel necessary to make that determination.

I know we have sidetracked the thread a bit...sorry for that.
The op used the term "presenters" in the first post.
Honest question, where on the globe is this term used to describe "dealers" (in the USA)?

I like "presenter". It sounds more formal and like they are putting on a show (entertainment).
"Dealer" is not as good. It sounds like they have to "deal" with something (gamblers/customers/hard job). :)

Properly, they are croupiers.

so here's the difference. As you state above, he experimented and scientifically proved the fact before telling colleagues. If you scientifically prove, none of us will howl.

But you haven't done that, have you? Let me answer for that for you: no you haven't.

Just like a slot machine it always makes money for the house in the short term.

It's one thing to claim you can beat roulette, but now you are just giving out incorrect information.

It only seems like a slot machine will hold its percentage in the short term because the HA is normally high and the bet spread doesn't vary as wild as a table game. It also depends on how the machine is designed and what kind of variance is baked in. How would that apply to a machine that has a huge jackpot? It might take year's for that machine to make up for a substantial jackpot hit.


If a roulette game has lost money for the house over a quarter, or whatever, its absolutely due to someone getting super lucky while making large bets compared to the average for a short period of time.
