Gambling message board gunfights9 June 2015
I guess it's not too hard to see why these battles occur. An individual explains his/her idea of how to gamble or what casinos are doing and then some other individual disagrees with the first individual's thesis. No one likes to be criticized so the first individual shoots back somewhat. Emotions start to flare. Given a bunch of posts the results go like this:
FIRST POSTER: I believe that psychic powers can overcome craps or any casino game. Here are my reasons (he gives his reasons).
SECOND POSTER: Your idea is not true. All the psychic research has been a waste of money.
FIRST POSTER: No it hasn't. We all have the gift and we just have to use it.
SECOND POSTER: If psychic ability to beat casino games existed there wouldn't be casinos. Your idea is nonsense.
FIRST POSTER: Why do you call this nonsense? What are you, some kind of expert?
SECOND POSTER: You don't have to be an expert to see when something is stupid. Only idiots would believe in psychic ability.
FIRST POSTER: So you think I am an idiot?
SECOND POSTER: If you believe this nonsense you are an idiot.
FIRST POSTER: No, you are the idiot. You think you are so smart?
SECOND POSTER: Well, I'm smarter than you that's for sure. People like you give gamblers bad ideas. You probably have dopey-gambler DNA.
FIRST POSTER: You think you are funny? Most posters here are laughing at you and that's why no one else has jumped in here.
SECOND POSTER: They haven't jumped in because they know you are a jerk.
FIRST POSTER: You calling me a jerk hurts my reputation. Do that again and I will sue you.
SECOND POSTER: How can you sue me? For what? Telling the truth? You are a jerk, jerk, jerk! How do you like that? Besides Mr. Dope, you don't know my real name.
FIRST POSTER: Yeah, I do. Your name is "My Mother was an Ape!"
MODERATOR: Both you guys are off this board.
FIRST POSTER: You can beat casino games using ESP.
SECOND POSTER: Don't listen to this jerk (and on it goes).
[My new book, "I Am a Dice Controller: Inside the World of Advantage-Play Craps" will blow the lid off this particular world.]
