The sport of kings.
Reminds me of a quote I saw the other day that I can imagine my automation saying in a few years.....
HAL9000: I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission.
(btw 2001 A Space Odyssey...the book it's based on was written in 1948!!!)
Yes, quite often, when I'm bored. I have come to terms with it, seems like it's a part of me.
But nothing serious, it's like visiting a casino on a vacation, pure relaxation gambling.

This reminded me of a race from many years ago when I was purely a punter. I'd had a bet in an Irish race at Gowran I think. My horse a 12/1 shot had wandered a bit in the closing stages but looked in the photo to have won just like here. It was 1/10 in-running to win the photo. I couldn't believe it when the result went to the other horse.
