‘Harry the Dog’ recalls losing a £2.5m bet in 2007


Interesting article in this morning's "The Guardian." My wagers are a wee bit smaller.

"Profitably wagering on a stochastic event (one governed by variables) is possible only when the person doing the wagering is not one of the variables."

Mick the guy does have a problem, He's an adrenaline junky but doesn't know it.

Combat Vets become addicted to it also from stressful situations. After combat and their return to the big PX (the US) they do dumb stuff to activate that adrenaline rush such as motorcycles or anything dangerous to include fighting etc. They are junkies to adrenaline also. This guy will probably lose it all again as the only real cure seems to be abstinence and a good women / love.

Like you mine are a we bit smaller also. ha ha

I've seen him on TV a few times. To be honest he always comes across as quite a likeable man.
