Back in the day (and it’s always “back in the day” with these types of stories, isn’t it?), Web Watch would be known to partake in a drinking game or two amongst friends.
Why? Mainly because the games themselves were kinda fun. A bit stupid, perhaps, but always a fun challenge. Drinking was merely secondary to the activity, as one never needs a “game” of any sort to take a drink whenever one would like.
The key, of course, is to know when to say when and back out of the activity. Drinking too much because of some stupid game rule is never a good idea for anyone.
It’s well known that the NFL and the NCAA both frown upon the large amount of office pool sports betting that goes on during their major events: the Super Bowl and the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament aka March Madness.
Add to the mix that the high stakes, unregulated dollars are being done mostly in an illegal fashion (that is, sports betting run by individuals may be illegal where you live), you can see why those organizations and local governments may be a bit concerned about the situation.
So we hear that you may have bought a lottery ticket or two recently, hoping to maybe win big.
Hey – it could happen. It only takes one set of numbers to win, right? And somebody’s going to win the lottery eventually – it can’t keep growing forever without a winner, as that would end up decreasing sales if customers ever figured out that nobody ever wins.
That’s why we still bother to try, because while the chances of winning the lottery drawing are practically nil, it’s still a one in millions chance of hitting… and that’s better odds than not bothering to buy a ticket in the first place.
“How to predict winning lottery numbers?” Let’s be a bit more specific — today we’re going to talk about why it really doesn’t matter what lottery numbers you pick.
Look – winning the lottery is one of those one-in-a-billion opportunities. Sure, someone somewhere is going to hit the Powerball or Megamillions jackpots – but they’re definitely not going to be able to tell you how they did it.
But lottery fever is going to take over your family, your office. Everyone is going to want you to pitch in your dollar for a chance at the multi-million dollar prize.
Over the years, Web Watch has had the pleasure of meeting a number of our readers and sharing war stories about things people will do at a bar for fun.
It’s true – get enough drunk people together, and the infamous catchphrase of “hey y’all – watch this!” is often followed by “betcha can’t”.
Web Watch often offers a standing $1 for certain games and activities, if completed. Some people say that a single dollar isn’t worth the challenge, while others gleefully take them on. We’re more than happy to pay up when a challenge is completed – half the fun is getting there, right?
It’s that time of year again, where every sports fan worth their paper brackets start working their own version of BRACKETOLOGY in time for some HOOPS MADNESS.
So even though we still have a few weeks to go before the 2012 tournament contenders are announced, Web Watch thought we’d share with you some of the front-runners that you may want to pay attention to while we ramp up to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
Then again, we also agree with our friends who say that “a little Las Vegas goes a long way”. In other words, these people don’t necessarily enjoy the entire gambling, casino, nightlife, gambling aspect of Sin City.
Web Watch knows people that took a vacation out to Nevada and other points west, and their Las Vegas experience consisted solely of driving down the Las Vegas Strip. They didn’t stop, they didn’t browse. They had lunch as a nearby McDonald’s (not even at the In-n-Out!) before continuing on their merry way.
We don’t blame them. There are aspects of Las Vegas that we don’t appreciate either. But to each their own.
It’s a long weekend, so what better reason to ring in the New Year by getting together with your buddies for a late night of cigar smoking and poker playing?
But before you do, you might want to read up a little bit on how to recognize a “poker tell” – that is, those silent signs that your poker opponents aroung the table give off when they have a good or bad hand.
Some of these little ticks are done on purpose – players think that they can indicate whether they have a worse hand than they actually do by doing or saying something to throw you off the scent. Other tells are things your body does whether you realize it or not. Continue reading COMMON POKER TELLS, FROM POKER EXPERT MIKE CARO→
