He said: “Losing a horse is not a good thing, but how do we know something good won’t come from it?” Ren’s Creations

    Thanks George for your comment. As to people who feel lucky, it is only delusional. All games in Casinos, except blackjack, are designed to favor the house, not unlike a pair of loaded dice. Short term fluctuations make people think there is such thing as luck, but in the long run the law of statistics reign supreme. Fluctuations to the losing side occur more frequently than fluctuations to the winning side, and in the end, everybody loses his or her last penny. Understanding of statistics takes all the fun out of gambling. There is no such thing as luck in gambling. In life, luck is entirely a horse of a different color. Did I say horse? Just kidding. Regrads, Ren

    Thank you very much for the nice comment and adding it to your favorites. This is a story they taught in school when I was a boy in China. I think they tried to prepare us early on how to perceive life. Best regards, Ren
