How quickly can a fool find his money again?

I currently have a whole bunch of debt. Hmm...I wonder how much I could get for my kidneys?

For Those Who Have Gambled
There's a new blog of the day on which is about a guy who has managed to get ninety-one grand in debt through gambling.

His posts are entertaining and provide insight into life through the eyes of a gambler. As I think of money that I have lost through gambling, I read through his analysis of the psychology of the gambler and realize how much of it has been true for myself at some point in the past.

Here is the link.

    Thanks for the heads up on this blog. Im sure Im going to become a regular reader, since Im a heavy gambler myself. I find the psychology of problem gambling fascinating. I've even considered attending a GA meeting incognito just to do some opposition research. I've spent enough time at card tables to know that a good amount of your earn comes from exploiting problem gamblers.

    Yeah, I know that when I was playing poker regularly, I kept my eyes open for people who looked like they were having a bad night, because I knew that they would be more likely to make mistakes that I could profit from.

    There is certainly a lot that goes into being a good poker player, and I commend you for being able to do it successfully.
