    hmm in gambling, things are designed so that the house always wins.  Is that really the way you see life?  And if so, who is the house?

    Your eyes open and you roll the dice. The dealer deals your daily hand. You study your cards carefully. These are the cards you must play. The game is life. Winning and losing is all a state of mind.

      Wow Chuck, it's too early in the morning to be so profound.

      I'm on borrowed time, but I've been beating the odds for the last 20 years.

        How does one borrow time?  All I know is put time in, get no time back.

          If you can give cause to he who is Death that you have something profound and meaningful to contribute that is finite and specific, you might find your life extended long enough to accomplishment.

    Everyday my life is a gamble, I have epilepsy and a seizure could kill me. I choose to live a relatively normal life and not have a 24hr carer. I'm not afraid of dying, I've come close countless times. I embrace life as much as I can and break the rules the doctors set, such as no drinking alcohol, no cinema/t.v with the light off. I know when to stop drinking, and I pace myself. I go to concerts in spite of the flashing lights. If I didn't gamble then I'd be stuck in a padded room with a 24 hour carer. No ta!

    Sure my life is a gambling game, because the politicians are holding all the cards and they play the game according to their ever-changing rules
