    For some reason that brings to mind the people at casinos who sit and endlessly pull the lever on a single slot machine, seems like some kind of OCD at work along with the gambling.

    You ever pull out the wallet and swear you thought you had another 20 left in there, like there was no way you just went through a hundred bucks in 30 minutes? :jj:

    No, I was betting sports way too much. Watching 40 pt games for the over/under. Way too wrapped up in it, for losing money.

    It's always ironic the state tells you what you can and can't do. What is good and bad for you
    Meanwhile they make money off booze, tobacco and lotteries and love the money they get.
    Talk about ironies

    My point is there are no more levers, it's all push button. The machines don't even pay in coins anymore.
