I gamble or place a bet just about every damn day. I'd estimate about 10-15 days a year I don't do any type of gambling...most of which would be when I'm out of town on a non-gambling trip, but even then, I'm probably doing something even on the day of travel, because stuff still gots to get done. Some days (rare) I just don't do any type of gambling, because either I'm being lazy or there's nothing to go do, but oftentimes it's also just because I'm working on stuff at home trying to figure out how to make a play happen, record keeping, etc.

I think a lot of us are on this forum to satisfy our gambling itch in a way. I have been in a casino 5 times since July and 3 of them were on a 3 day stay in vegas.

Counting is only gambling if you're underfunded or overbetting your bankroll in the short run and not letting your edge actually kick in over time.



This guy just keeps amazing me. Even if you have a 99.99999% chance at winning it is still gambling. Just look at your Lock Of The Century.

I have been on quite a few plays where it's impossible to lose money unless the casino FK's you. I guess that's still a gamble.

If I had my choice, I would never step foot in a casino unless it was for dinner or something non gambling related.

There are some plays that are super fun and some that are very boring. Sometimes I can't wait to get done and just go home.

ROTFLMAO. Now you are just being silly.

You may have gotton the wrong impression. I love doing what I do, however, I would rather be fly fishing or be a successful artist.

I know the show American Pickers probably isn't at all what they show on TV, but in my imagination I think I would be in heaven doing that and making money.

Iím not sure how much success youíd have trying to fish for flies, but hey, you do you! (Joke, btw....) I can see how thatíd be tough in Vegas though. We arenít known for our many rivers. (Which is good because, like trees, rivers are also awful.)

But I donít see why you canít do artist stuff on your spare time? I donít know anything about art, but I do occasionally watch YouTube videos on art stuff like learning how to draw and stuff. Idk why I do, but I do. Just get a mallet, paint, other supplies, and go ham. Or get a sketchbook with them fancy pencils that piss me off because I swear theyíre all the same except supposedly theyíre different and my art teacher in HS got mad at me because idk how to draw for sh** even though she was actually a nice lady she just seemed mean sometimes and idk why Iím rambling. Thereís some guy on YouTube I watched a bit and he does animations as well as flip books, which I think is pretty cool. Not that Iíd do it, but I think itís cool nonetheless.

A bit of arcane info, on point:

During WWII, Japanese Zero fighter pilots were taught as part of their training to pursue and catch flies using chopsticks to enhance their hand / eye coordination.
