Oddly Enough Blog

News, but not the serious kind

It’s not even like gambling at all…


Blog Guy, I have some extra money this month and I was thinking of trying that online gambling thing. Do you know how it works?

Why sure, you came to the right place. Let’s start with online poker.


I’m dealing each of us a hand right now. Let’s see. You got a pair of queens.

Yay! I’ll bet $200 and I’m calling you. What do you have?

A pair of aces. I win.

But how do I know that?

Here’s a picture of them.

Ah. Okay. Let’s try online roulette. I’m putting $500 on nine red.

Spinning, spinning, clickety-click, clickety-click, slowing down. Damn! You came SO close to winning!

I don’t know about this, Blog Guy. I want to keep betting, but it just seems like there’s a very high element of trust required on my part in this online gambling thing. Do you have anything more transparent?
