Gambling economics explained in a single comic strip

March 22nd, 2010 at 02:22 pm

Gambling is just one of those things I never saw the fun in. I guess its from my math background, I just know that its just a fancy way to throw away your hard earned money. A lottery isn't so bad, at least you are told up front what the odds are. But casinos are ... well... not my cup of tea, to put it mildly.

Anyway, if you feel like I do, here is the perfect comic strip to show those that think going to a casino is a great way to spend some time. You need to select Saturday March 20 to view it, and it will probably be there for only 10 days, so don't wait...

    Great cartoon! I feel the same way about casinos.

    I played in a hockey tournament in Vegas one year, and I found the casinos to be some of the most depressing places I'd ever seen. People were totally glazed over, throwing money into slot machines and stuff. I don't get the attraction, it leads me to just fall back on the understanding that for many people, gambling is an addiction. Treatment may not be covered by your health insurance (or maybe it is, I don't know), but it's an addiction. And a scary one.
