Just curious to see what your game of chance is and where you like to play it?

Roulette, because you can never loose. (as long as you bring at least $500) I usually play it on the corner of 26th and California

well its really simple actually.....only play the colors....and stick to one color...
I'll go with black. If you put $50 on black, and it come up your +50 if not your -50 next turn, bet $100, if black comes up your even.You just keep doing that all night ;) Back in the day....in highschool, i took a probabiltiy and statics class. We figured out what the odds were in roulette for the same color to come up 8 times in a row. it was in the hundreds of thousands. But if you do this for too long at a table, they will tell you to leave. lol. So choose wisely

If you win, clear your bet and start over. Dont take your winnings and bet double. if you loose bet double to break even, if you loose twice in a row, tripple your bet, etc. ;)

Folks, think twice about the dog tracks, please.

I have adopted three racing greyhounds and have done some study into their life on the track. Not good. Please don't support this activity.

That sucks. I am an animal lover. Especially dogs. I love my shepherd wolf hybrid and my shepherd husky mix

I object to an industry that breeds an animal for amusement purposes, does not give that animal a good life, and discards it carelessly when it is no longer profitable to use it.

THOUSANDS of greyhounds are disposed of every year, rescue groups cannot place that many. So, some are sold to research labs, some are just killed. There are even horror stories of people just locking the doors and walking away, letting the dogs die of thirst and starvation.

Aside from that, their lives are miserable. For example, they want them to get off to a fast start, so there is not room in the racing gate for them to lie down-- all well and good, that. But because there IS room for them to sit, and that would get the dog off to a slow start, they are conditioned NOT to sit with a cattle prod. Watch a rescued racer and you will see that it either stands or lies down, it won't just sit on its haunches. Not a one of my dogs would sit-- finally trained one to sit a bit, but he acted like he was sitting on a stove-- he'd drop his bottom down and then jump up again as if to say, "There, I did what you wanted me to, don't make me stay there and get hit by lightning." One of my guys was just TERRIFIED if we had anything resembling a stick in our hands-- an umbrella, a yard stick, an extended tape measure. Either it looked like a cattle prod or someone had beaten that dog.

One of my guys scarcely had teeth, the vet said he must have continuously chewed at his crate. He also had almost no fur on his belly or butt when we got him, which the vet said was also a sign of anxiety.

One of my guys came off the track when he broke his leg. They didn't treat the leg, they just put him back in his crate, because why treat a dog that will never run again?

Their diet on the track is crappy, because they feed them as cheap as they can. Leads to dental trouble as well as other problems. Track greyhounds have a higher cancer rate than non-track greyhounds.

They start weeding out the slower dogs in a litter right from the beginning. They can start running them at 2 years of age. They don't have many races in which to prove themselves, if they haven't won, placed, or showed in the first few races, they are discarded. Even the most winning dog has to come of the track at 5 years old, according to the rules of the track. How many dogs do they breed and discard just to get the (at best) three good years out of an animal that has a 13-15 year life expectancy?

I consider this an immoral industry because of their treatment of these animals.

CK-I know. A good friend of mine here in AR has rescued greyhounds for the last 20 years. The description you gave about your babies' physical condition and their fears broke my heart. I know it's true because I've seen it first hand. The work to rehab them is more than worth the effort. Bless their hearts and yours for opening your home and heart to these beautiful creatures.
