Documentaries that make you think.

The attached program is about money and how it is used to enslave people and countries.

I watched it and drew a parallel with this type of control and casinos. In the casino food chain you find the roulette game and the casinos do everything they can to keep the players at the table. Why? Because they know you will eventually lose it all.
The only way the player can survive is by either exercising extreme discipline  and stepping back when in profit or the player must develop a system/strategy/method that will survive the long run thus rewarding natures curse of greed.
As players, too many of us are locked onto the wrong value system that roulette offers. We get all misty and soft in the head when a player says he earns a living from the game and we automatically think that player has a method that always wins. All we see is piles of money and we attach richness to the phrase "earning a living" when it comes to roulette. I earn a living from roulette and no person on this forum has asked me how much money I have to make to sustain myself month in and month out. I find that odd but I understand why.

Please feel free to share other great documentaries and let's develop discussions around them.
No knowledge is a waste of time. You never know what benefits await you.

For those of you who watched the video and want to know what UBUNTU is, here is a simple phrase that puts it in a nutshell.

Ubuntu: I am because you are and you are because we are.

It is a very appealing concept and although designed to bring unity and harmony into society it is up against what many consider the flaws of humanity that read like the seven deadly sins.

The seven deadly sins, also known as the capital vices or cardinal sins, is a grouping and classification of vices within Christian teachings. Behaviours or habits are classified under this category if they directly give birth to other immoralities. According to the standard list, they are pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth, which are also contrary to the seven virtues. These sins are often thought to be abuses or excessive versions of one's natural faculties or passions (for example, gluttony abuses one's desire to eat)

The S
even Deadly Sins as listed by wikipedia.

Micky, how much money do you have to make per month to sustain yourself?  :)

18 000 units at my starting chip value. This can be calculated by looking at my starting day bankroll and the day win percentage. Like my session/day game management if I'm over I save the excess and if I'm under I move savings to balance the books. I try manage everything around my roulette business. As I progress I do increase my chip value and that too is factored into the overall plan.

Oh boy, I made a serious error (call it a typo); it's not 18 000 units, it's 1 800. Sorry about that.

The great global warming saga.

This documentary reminds me a lot of roulette and the agenda that is pushed by some to the detriment of others.

Off topic, but I have a friend who works in the industry and is at Sundance right now for the annual film festival. He watched a Michael Jackson documentary this week called “Leaving Neverland” and said it’s the grossest thing he’s ever seen.

He said no shower is strong enough after seeing it... :o

Although this video has nothing to do with roulette there is much a roulette player can take from this.

I have watched in amazement how this guy creates his own world of sustainability without any outside help. Nothing that this modern world has to offer to make life easier has been used. He makes his own tools and his own building blocks (bricks) and...and...and... There are a series of videos that you can watch with your favorite tunes playing in the background as there is only the sounds of work and nature in the videos; very relaxing and inspirational therapy.
Starting out in roulette should be a mirror of this amazing guy who has a plan and implements it step by step.
He makes it look so easy and that's mostly because he is not a screaming, complaining liberal...lol
