What I don't understand though is that a lot of these people don't look like they are having fun. Maybe they just hide it better then I do. My picture is of a sixty-something year old lady, with a cigarette hanging off her lips, a mixed drink in her left hand, her right hand pushing that slot machine button, over and over again. She doesn't look so happy to me. She looks like she is in a trance and moss is beginning to grow on her backside.
I don't want to say that gambling is all bad, there just is no upside for me. If anyone thinks they are going to strike it rich, well, let me know when that happens. Call me a hypocrite, but I will help you spend your winnings.
