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.

Okie-dokie.

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?
