      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Think YOU got chutzpah?

I'm hardly an authority on the matter, but isn't the phrase "professional gambler" and roulette incompatible? Roulette is random, whereas Poker involves skill.

The word "professional" usually implies skill, doesn't it? In this case, I think the guy loses money for a living.

John Rosholt is a pro gambler and climbing bum and makes enough $$$ from gambling to support his climbing lifestyle full-time.

 

My edumacated guess is that if the guy hadn't had a shitload of money riding on his one go, and especially if he hadn't had a documentary film crew with him, he might not have won. They can control roulette wheels with magnets.... I betcha there was nothing random at all about that win. Cause when a gambling addict sees that film about him winning its gonna be like a nicotine addict reading Cigar Aficionmado, theyre gonna run out and blow a wad and the casinos will make back all their losses.

 

Sorta like when J. Lo's mom wins the lottery wave.gif

If the guy had balls he would have made a single number bet that would have paid 35:1. Instead, he pussed out and went with the 2:1 bet. What a tosser.

No shit. This reads like a Las Vegas advertisement. Schmuck bets it all and wins! And for all you suckas who read 'Us' magazine, Jo Lo's mom won! Come one, come all, you're all going to win! Bet it all! Look at this single sensational story! We have an instant winner! You're appoved! I shat yellow! I shat green! but i digress...

 

yes it is all a scam. and there are higher stakes games being orginating from and propogated by the current US government administration. if you don't know about them, you haven't been wearing your tin foil hat. mushsmile.gif

Bumpersticker on shiny new green Mercedes SUV: "Don't let the car fool you. My treasure is in heaven". There's some Chutzpah.

 

Translation: Not only am I richer than you, I'm going on to richer rewards in heaven (unlike you unbelievers).

If he is a bonafide "believer", his explanation may be more along the line of, "I value more greatly the affect my faith has in my heart and mind than the cachet of this car and its effect in others."

It's strange to think that I was the third and final incarnation of tele_nut.

I know, it was a sad decline in stature, but at the time it was a free avatar handed down to me from Captain Caveman.
