    Don't look down...the thai brides thread is a louis theroux one...

    I will say that this is more interesting than I thought, like as I said in the other thread this has been done to death in the docu world.

    Well...we'll leave it to discuss this episode. If Blize doesn't mind.

    leave it...plus, when the new series kicks off it'd be better to use this one than 'thai brides FTW'

    Gah I lost lots of money years ago, but no where near those sums, all that "I am in good spirits" stuff is absolute bullshit, inside you feel sick as a dog. The moment they get alone you can gaurantee thats when it sinks in. And it is fucking hard to deal with, in fact the only way to accept you have effectively burnt thousands of dollars/pounds is to pretend its not a problem, its a coping mechanism for addicts.

    His last game fixed to give the BBC a happy ending for the show after Louis revealed that the true face of Las Vegas high rollers is one of a man weakly smiling like he's just shit himself.

    Seen people like him many, many times in Vegas. Biggest problem with people chasing their losses, especially on Blackjack, is they tend to screw up the table for everyone else.

    Gamble what you can afford to lose and if you do, shrug it off. Chasing losses never works.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Yeah, pretty depressing. What sucks was how heartless that guy was (the one who "markets" Vegas and kept the Mattress King at the tables).

    Obviously the casinos are ruthless, but I'd never really put a human face to it.

    Maybe i was expecting too much, but i was a bit dissapointed in the episode. It didn't really say much to me that everyone already knows. The people he met weren't particularily interesting or had anything engaging to say... i wasn't really paying a great deal of attention though, so i'll put it down to that in the hopes that next week's is better...
