>> Secondly, just because I busted out overbetting a bankroll hail-mary style in no way says that I "can't cut it" as an advantage player, but I'm taking time to save up money to do it right this time.
> Yeah, ok. Whatever you say.
Please - if I can put up with the endless litany of insulting nonsense from the resident BJ21.com trolls, I can handle anything. Whether I will be back at it is not in question, the only question is when.
>> Finally, dealing is one of the best part-time jobs imaginable. The pay for the work required is fantastic, and with a prorated 15 minute paid break every hour, it pays nearly as well as my current job.
> So, if I'm reading this right, dealing is a great job for a lazy person.
Yeah I'm so lazy, what with my two jobs and all. I don't think an unemployed grifter exploiting a system while doing no actual productive work towards society has any right calling someone else lazy.
> I'd rather not launch into an extended diatribe here (really, what would be the point?)
.. to try and defend your unwarranted use of vacuous slander?
> so I'll just say that the above statement looks to me like something a person completely bankrupt in moral substance would make.
What a clever way to get around the "no personal attack" policy on BJ21. You must not just be an amateur troll.
> If you deny the FACT that casinos as a whole are reprehensible in their operations, then I'm not going to waste my time trying to convince you otherwise. Sensible people are already well aware of this truth.
Of course, professional gamblers are completely unbiased in their views, aren't they?
Nowhere did I say that casinos were NOT reprehensible in operation - I did claim that they were no better or no worse than any other business. Big business as a whole operates pretty reprehensibly.
> I'm a professional player but if I could snap my fingers and wipe all casinos from the face of the Earth, I would in a heartbeat and go find another way to earn a buck.
What would that be? Another system with an exploitable hole that would allow you to sit on a high horse while doing nothing productive and telling the world how lazy they are?
> And as for the last vestige of Darwin's ideal...where in 'Origin of the Species' does it say "The ploppies shall be shamelessly and relentlessly bilked."?
Something about "survival of the fittest" comes to mind maybe?
Perhaps the casinos, taking money from the weak and the irresponsible and giving it to people working and trying to get ahead in the world, might just be exhibiting a little of that mentality?
> Maybe I'm a hopeless idealist, but I've always thought there was more to life than making a fast buck or getting over on the next guy.
Or maybe you're just a baseless hypocrite, claiming that there's "more to life than making a fast buck" while making your living exploiting loopholes in a system?
