in thread Selected Best Nodes Archive

On my 18th birthday (legal gambling age), I went into a betting shop and made 2 bets. I had to do something "new" to celibrate that special birthday, but I'd previously celebrated my 16th, in a pub with my girlfriend and the landlord, so drinking was passe.

The first bet was 25p each-way. It came in first and I tripled my stake.

The second, I bet my winning, 50p on-the-nose. It came in second. I was even.

That was the last time I bet on a horse. I'm a gambler that never lost any money:)

I've never yet bought a lottery ticket.

I've enjoyed fruit machines occasionally, but I bore easily, and with modern ones you don't even have the fun of pulling the handle.
