Cashino Royale

Here goes the post about the activity which happened from 4 pm to 9 pm on Day 2 of Prog-r-am-m-ers. Nothing can make it more obvious than the title. The phodu coders wanted to make some easy money and indulge in something illegal. Most of them were first timers. This levelheadedidiot was also one.

And they played. 6 hours straight. Realized why gambling is evil. Ruins families. Ruins careers. Ruins lives. There were winners and losers. Everyone was a winner. Realizing the evils of something is epic win.

Cut the seriousness.

So they played. 6 hours. Non-stop. 6 hours of fun. There was the strategist, who was ready to play the waiting game. There was the gambler, who played a blinder. There were guys whose cash disappeared faster than light. Some others played as if they were playing to add to the boot. The strategist played a waiting game. He waited for the perfect set of cards before making a move. The gambler played blind and won a lot of money. It was decided to send him on a field trip to Las Vegas.

6 hours had us thinking. Why is it so evil? The answer was right there. It was indulging. It was addictive. No one gave a heck about the time. No one even got up from their seats. Gambling is evil. You win money. Someone else loses money. It can get nasty when someone puts everything on the line. Between friends, it is Ok. For one night, it was Ok. If you played it regularly, then these friends would turn foes. Its a headache. Gambling is evil.

Cash is to be earned. Gambling is not earning. Gambling is evil.
