    It's pointless to count cards at a casino, they use between 5-7 decks per table so you can't be sure. I used to gamble lots up in Canada before I moved.

    I always had the best luck at blackjack, I was never a highroller but I did usually managed to leave the place with a couple hundred more than I came in everytime.

    Blackjack is easy as hell to play and easy to learn how to win at it. Roulette is also a good game to win big money but you need big money to make it worthwhile.

    blackjack is what id be palyin. and i know there are 5-7 decks. thats why you have to be good at counting cards. and im good at math and i have a good mentor so i hope to learn that shit. you have to make sure and not get caught though or youll be banned from every casino in the country youre in.

    That is what I thought, but it is only on the mechanical ones. They have wheels that run down and have a pattern on each one, they are all different on the three wheels hence you have to memorize them. It is believable and the way you can memorize them is that they have SLOT magasines in Japan. On a side not you cannot gamble here. No card games at all, and what you can bet on you have to get prizes [pens, teddy bears and others] then you have to go across the road and exchange those prizes back for money..........It sounds stupid and yes it is but that is the Japanese way of life.......as complicated as possible

    Well first theres 3 different meens for taking the drug:

    -Injection :
    "Let's start with needles. There are two reasons to use needles: it gives
    a bigger rush, and it makes more effective use of the drug. This second
    reason is, of course, only a consideration because the drug is expensive
    and difficult to get. The problems with needles are that you inject a
    lot of crap into your body (adulterants and dilutants), you run the risk
    of infecting yourself with something (HIV or a Hepatitis virus), and
    you wreck your veins and skin. Most IV Heroin users are constantly
    plagued by irritated, infected skin. Hey, you inject talc into your skin,
    that's what you get. Even the quinine (which is believed to have originated in heroin during an outbreak of malaria among addicts) can cause numerous health problems (there's a large literature on the problems of adulterants and dilutants in heroin and cocaine)."

    -Snorting :

    -Smoking

    Now i belive every one is aware that heroin can cause crippling addicitions and with drawl is just a living hell with pretty much any opiate. So with out further delay :

    "So where do the health problems of heroin come from? Primarily from the use of needles, the presence of adulterants in the drug, the poor nutrition and health care associated with the hard core addict life-style; and the violence associated with said life-style.

    The life-style that an addict leads is generally pretty unhealthy as well.
    Often, addicts don't get an adequate diet. Vitamin deficiencies are not
    uncommon. Constipation caused by a combination of poor eating that the effects of the drug on the bowels can lead to haemorrhoids. Chest
    infections seem pretty common too, especially among cigarette smokers.
    Then you've got the problems of trafficking in the (potentially) violent
    underworld. Joe and Leishman (et al (1982), "Addict Death Rates During a Four-Year Post-Treatment Follow-up," _Amer J of Public Health_ 72: p. 703-9.) found that 28% of deaths among addicts were from violence (17% were from natural causes, and 44% were drug related).

    So, it would seem that if one had clean heroin from a reliable source
    and avoided the IV route, there'd be few health problems. Potential
    problems would arise from becoming addicted and becoming unproductive or from accidentally ODing. " Erowid.com

    I could go lot farther into this, but this thread isnt about the use of heroin so im going to refrain from bringing it up again. I thought the statement was pretty self explanitory .... but hopefully this helped to clarify exactly what it was i was saying.


    *Forgot to mention that this is all subjective to the user and will not always be the case, just like with gambling some times you win.. some times you dont.
