About Me

My photo

Did Socrates say "Know Thyself", or was he misunderstood, as all are. Show Thyself is all we can do. The knowing is unknowable.  

I am filled with joy.  It can't be helped.  

Became a Farmer, Builder, Musician, Tank Commander, Librarian, Lawyer and Minister. I have failed at many things. And now retired.  Filled, just filled, with Joy.

Perspectives: GAMBLING

Facts concerning Gambling:

Research shows that if you "play" the games offered in Las Vegas which have the most and best "chance" for winning, and if on those games, you "play" a perfect transaction in which at each "choice-point" you select the alternative which is best for you, over time, you will still lose.

There is only one FORM of gambling in which you have a chance of benefiting: If you open up a gambling casino yourself, and lure the suckers in to just hand over money to you.

In 2007, the major hotel-casinos of Las Vegas posted their highest profit ever -- $2.1 billion, on $5.4 billion gross up from $4.5 billion in 2005, reported by the Gaming Control Board, compiled from 271 resorts.
