    I don't think that was just you imagining - that was a real thing wasn't it?

    Demonstrating OT powers would tip off every alien with a budget implant station that the jig was up and we figured out how to undo implants and escape prison planet Earth. It could trigger a full blown invasion.

    Very important to remain Fabian.

    LOL. Just get a cocktail waitress to badger him/her and you'll soon see (we used to do that).

    I'm half-joking but it's imperative that the guy sees each and every card that comes out of the shoe in order to get his stats right. He will bet with minimum stakes at the beginning of the shoe and count the cards to see which way the wind's blowing. Then all of a sudden he'll bet the fucking farm on the next card being a picture card for example. It's the way he bets that is the giveaway.

    OK, thanks. That makes sense.

    And once the Pit Boss sees someone betting that way they don't permit the person to keep playing?

    Yep, if LRH or OTs could remote view then why risk so much by having GO people physically burglarize government offices and why were they caught by surprise when literally busloads of FBI agents raided them?

    Maybe the way to go is to play like an idiot for a while to minimize any attention on oneself, and then start playing for real at some point.

    Of course, and you won't be the first to think of using that strategy, but sooner or later the signs will be there and they'll be unmasked. There are all sorts of strokes that get pulled by punters in a casino, and it was a full-time job trying to keep up with the buggers. :biggrin:

    ANSWER: Perth rose above the goal of becoming the first Clear city---and has now become the first Ideal city. I have not confirmed this in writing yet, but I understand that it will then rise above that and become the first Operating city. On this planet.

    That would be far safer than letting some rogue invader SP "pull the air cover off" of this planet, on this planet.

    As easy as it must be to postulate away a planet's atmosphere, I'd settle for putting out a candle in the next room.

    But you remind me of another rational for not demonstrating OT powers - it's not okay to self-audit without paying and official C/Sing, etc. If we go exterior, we are reminded, without the proper preparation then we can go out-int and pull in restimulation all of which can be vewy expensive to correct in auditing.

    So using OT powers can mess up your case if you aren't ready and talking about OT powers is like talking about your case which is also not OK - wins printed in Advance mag excepted, although, those do seem to have become very mundane as of late compared to the good old days when the ability to find parking spaces was assured. Could it be that they are systematically trying to lower our expectations to something like just making the stop light turn green while looking for a parking space?

    I've often heard that it's impossible to devise a strategy to win at roulette but I had a friend who did it.

    He took about £300 to his local casino, used his system and came out with about double his initial stake. He planned to do this 10 times in a row using the same stake then, if it was successful every time, he would gather together as much money as he could and use it as his stake for one night only (he figured he would probably be banned after that occasion).

    He went once a week for 6 weeks and won roughly the same amount each time then on the 6th occasion he was escorted to the door by two large gentleman and told not to come back. So he never made it to the big hit.

    Roulette is a game of chance. The house has an advantage and no strategy in the world can overcome it. You can get lucky but your luck will never last.

    I've walked out of a casino ahead innumerable times after playing roulette (I simply used to play two out of three columns and hope zero (there's only one in the UK/Europe/South Africa)) didn't come up. I used to quit while I was in front, and that's something the majority of punters find so difficult to do.

    I've also gone back the following day with the preceding day's winnings and done my brains, so I know how it is from both sides.

    I just love that guitar solo! :biggrin:

    He told me how he did it and it wasn't luck. That's why he was banned.

    OK, I won't argue with you.

    But seriously, that mega Roulette winner was assuredly "counting pockets". Each time the ball settled into a one of the pockets, he must have used a system to remember which number/color it landed on.


    Then, with each successive spin (using mathematical science and the law of averages) he would begin to gain an advantage and know that it was "less likely" that the ball would land in the identical pocket again the next spin. Genius!

    Ergo, the longer he played the more advantage he would gain, until he could predict with 99.99% accuracy exactly where the ball would land each time. Super Genius!

    It's no wonder they gave him the bum rush and threw his cheating ass out!

    Honestly, they had no choice because he could have kept doubling his bets (using winnings) and there would have been an exponential compounded effect within just a few hours of playing that would have exceeded a trillion dollars! I mean, hell, the guy could have started with a penny and then within only 30 spins he would have already had winnings of over $5M!

    If you still don't believe it, the guy is selling a DVD of his tech for only 999 dollars. It seems pretty fair since you easily make that much back within the first hour. Making a thousand bucks an hour is pretty OT, right? I am thinking of doing this as a way to make it go right to to pay for my whole bridge.

    In case anyone is snickering, thinking this is some kind of joke, I attach a scientific schematic below of one guy from the internet (who I understand used to be a total loser) who then became a trillionaire using the roulette pocket-counting tech. I am not sure which casino this surveillance photo was taken at, but that's not the point. The point is that casinos are businesses and can't afford to pay out winnings like that without going bankrupt. Duh! People, do the math!!!!


    Cool, right!?!

    I am assuming that aerial shot of him standing next to the trillion dollars was taken by some sort of drone the casino owned. Looks like he was standing in the parking lot where he probably called several hundreds Ubers to help him transport it back to his home (a van down by the river).

    LOL. Of course, what number came up last has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on what number will come up next. If 29 black came up last, that does not alter the odds of it coming right up again next spin.

    Casinos pay 35 to 1 for a single number bet whereas the true odds are 37 to 1 (or even 38 to 1 in the US). The casino simply cannot lose and that is the end of it.

    Well, what can I say? The guy I am talking about became a trillionaire! Obviously he had unbelievably huge havingness!

    Unfortunately, it appears your havingness level is not up to having a trillion dollars. Let me suggest you cut back the gradient and maybe just postulate only winning enough to do your Patron Status--- it's only $50,000 mest dollars on this planet. Do you have any considerations or CI about making this happen this week before Thursday at 2pm?

    Yeh, he was counting cards, for sure, but there are a lot of methods for card counting in Blackjack, from the simplest (how many face cards have been turned so far and how many are left?) to more complex methods and systems that group the cards.

    I've won a lot of money at Blackjack many years ago, but no more. :no: Nearly every casino has six-deck automatic shufflers. Two-deck is countable, six-deck is ridiculous.

    If a casino sees a player winning too much, they either change dealers or put a ringer at an open seat to mess up the cards for the players. When there's a dealer change, the new dealer is usually an old hand at it and knows how to take out the good players. I've had it happen and seen it happen countless times.

    Then there's the stupid players going by intuition that make dumb plays and mess it up for the other players. Plenty of those around that mess things up without the casino's help. They have a knack for jumping in just as the players have spent an hour or two working up to a good run to finally get the win going and they jump in because it's "a lucky table." Hardly! It takes forever to get the cards to fall where you want them and get smart players at the table who all play them right. It takes huge self-discipline not to lose everything before you get to that point, too.

    Casinos cheat, too, at all of the games, including Blackjack. I know that for a fact, I worked at one of the top US accounting firms that used to audit the big casinos. They even cheated during audits (and they have warnings of at least a few days of when the audits are coming, too). They use everything from magnets to extra aces in the decks to paid employees sitting at tables.

    It's frustrating and ridiculous. The casino will win, and it will get you addicted in the process, too, always hoping to get your money back. Been there, done that, walked away from it years ago. :wave:

    Gamblers only talk about their wins. They never talk about how they lost it all and so much more.
