Is it a bad thing? Is it just human nature? Is writing this a gamble?

Are you Gambling your life away?

Truth is, we all are. Every day is a gamble when you boil it down to the bare bones.


In the 2nd year of this new woke decade, humans love a chance. We are addicted to taking chances. We have incorporated taking chances and spending money into every aspect of our life. And I think it has led to a WORLDWIDE gambling addiction.


Is it time to Color up, and cash out?

Or do you also like to live dangerously?

Casinos


The allure and fun of gambling is everywhere>


Vegas, Macau, Singapore,

on any golf course with Michael,

my cousin Vinny's basement on Thursdays


It doesn't matter where you are on earth, humans are tossing down coins left and right. Cash is being flashed daily. People are going 'all in' as you read this blog. Call it a human condition, but we are obsessed with CHANCE.


Every country has its own games>


BlackJack

Pachinko

Roulette

Slots

Go!


Hell, we practically teach our kids games of chance before we can read or write. We want to win the JACKPOT so much, that people are willing to cheat and break the law to win big. Just remember to not get caught counting cards, shaving points, or passing GO! without collecting 200$.

Sports


Humans love to take chances. It has taken over sports, video games, food, and the economy.

Our obsession with THE ODDS has been integrated into our lives so much that it feels unavoidable.


FanDuel, Teaser cards, Draft Kings.


You can gamble on your phone, your computer, at the bar, with coworkers, with family, with friends, with your dog. It has been noticed now, that MEN gamble TWO TIMES MORE than WOMEN. I am a supporter of the equality of winnings and losings. I declare that women are slacking and should begin to gamble more! What is the leading cause behind this statistic? Are women more methodical? Are men addicted to the adrenaline? All we know is that men love taking bigger chances more than women.


YOLO Life

is the life for me.

Risk vs Chances


Some people are hesitant to take chances.


Pulling the slot machine lever and winning is a great feeling, but some people hate the feeling of hopelessness. Consequences and Rewards.


A chance at a new job?

GaGa Poker Face during an interview.


A chance on a stock?

Cross them fingers for quarterly reports.


A chance on moving to Chile?

No regrats.


A chance on love?

All he has is the dice thing.


In order to move forward in life, you must take some types of chances. Being indecisive and stagnant will only lead you to where you currently are. Incorporate positive reinforcement for when you take chances no matter the outcome. You must rewire your brain at times and learn that taking the chance is always more important than the result.


Quality of Life = Attempts

people, antes please…

Spades flush.

What is all in?

Fours are wild.

Mega Millions.

I call and raise!

Scratch Tickets.

20 grand on green.

I am not a high roller.

What is double down?

Fold them like yer making a bed.

Scratching lotto tickets amps me up.

Take a Chance on Love


Bumble, Tinder, Farmers


Why would I feed

my wife and children,

when I could throw it all down

on the Celtics this weekend?


Are you lonely? Did the Queen of Hearts crush your middle organ? Did you take a chance on another human and it Merp Derped into "Sorry, but no thanks. I'd like to split these."


Sometimes yah gots'ta take a leap of faif. Take a dang chance on love already?


Leo took a leap. He won that poker game. Jumped on a boat across the ocean. Painted a beautiful couch. Then ended up bust/frozen. Makes me teary-eyed still. But at least Leo~Jack took a chance on something. You should too.


Get your butt out there and take some bloody chances.

If you made it this far... MERP DERP!

What is the internet?

I don't know.

But I created, and I shared.

Thus, I have contributed?
