Heads I win, tails you lose…
Blog Guy, I just lost a bunch of money to a guy flipping coins, and I can’t figure out how he did it. He beat me every time!
Let me guess. Was he playing, “Heads I win, tails you lose?”
Yes! I can’t figure out what went wrong!
Well, this is not generally a good phrase to agree to in the world of wagering. As a helpful illustration, look at these two guys in the photos.
After an hour of gambling, the one who was saying “Heads I win, tails you lose” is blazing away with two machine guns, looking like Rambo and about to leave with several gorgeous chicks wearing stiletto heels.
He is standing on the other guy, whom we will call the loser. That dude has bricks broken around him, tire tracks on his face, and no shirt.
Yikes. Is that all that happened to the poor shirtless guy?
Nope. The hot shell casings from those guns have to be coming down somewhere, don’t they?
