    Not Even For Matches

    It is not a religious thing or anything like that; I'm Catholic Catholics push that Bingo gambling and lottery tickets. Nor is it something I learned from my parents. They used to play penny-ante poker with friends when I was still a kid living at home. No, it is just a feeling I...

    Risk Aversion

    The "pain" of losing is always so much greater than the "joy" of winning. I just don't see the point. (And that's assuming that the odds were even. Of course in casinos they never are.)
