Written by GameTime

Upon first glance it may appear as a myth, but it is easy to see that dice control is more than that. Dice control is more than a myth becauserepparttar end result of any die thrown is onrepparttar 147336 die before it is thrown. There are only six possibilities and no unknowns. The fact that any object thrownrepparttar 147337 same way atrepparttar 147338 same speed atrepparttar 147339 same place will behaverepparttar 147340 same can be applied to dice. Many people say that dice control is a myth because they can not do it. However these arerepparttar 147341 same people inrepparttar 147342 50’s who said a baseball player could never pitch a ball over 90 miles an hour. The act of controllingrepparttar 147343 dice in order to achieve a desired result is much more than a myth.

Throwing any two standard dice there are 36 possible outcomes. A fact that no one can argue with is thatrepparttar 147344 end result of any one throw is one of these 36 outcomes, which can be seen onrepparttar 147345 dice before you throw them. All a person needs to do is know which side of each ofrepparttar 147346 dice will berepparttar 147347 end result. Using dice control a shooter can greatly increase his chance of predicting which two numbers will berepparttar 147348 final result. Due torepparttar 147349 nature ofrepparttar 147350 game of Craps,repparttar 147351 dice controlling shooter does not have to be right all ofrepparttar 147352 time, to make a substantial win.

As previously mentioned, any object thrownrepparttar 147353 same way atrepparttar 147354 same speed atrepparttar 147355 same place will behaverepparttar 147356 same. Given that fact it is very possible to controlrepparttar 147357 throw ofrepparttar 147358 dice. The problem that comes up is that a casino is not a perfect situation. The casinos try very hard to distract players, because they know that dice control requires complete focus and a certain “rhythm” to throw. If a shooter can block out all ofrepparttar 147359 distractions that a casino tries to use, it would be easy to see that dice control is more than a myth.

Written by David Z

Becauserepparttar historical and archaeological records of most forms of body art are incomplete, we still don't know where and where tattooing originated.

Tattooed mummies providerepparttar 147054 earliest concrete evidence of tattoo, and these have been found in various parts ofrepparttar 147055 world, from Nubia to Peru. Probably t he most ancient tattooed man isrepparttar 147056 "Iceman", a Bronze Age man uncovered after being frozen in a glacier onrepparttar 147057 Tyrolean Alps since 3000 B.C. A tattooed band of stripes was found on his lower back, a simple cross onrepparttar 147058 inside of his left knee and more stripes on his right ankle.

There are many examples of tattooing in ancient Egypt,repparttar 147059 oldest found onrepparttar 147060 mummy of Egyptian priestess ofrepparttar 147061 goddess Hathor at Thebes, Amunet, who lived approximately 4000 years ago, she was tattooed with parallel lines of dots. Because of her religious status, some archaeologists have speculated that her body art had spiritual or magical connotations. Others feelrepparttar 147062 designs were of sexual nature.

Some ofrepparttar 147063 most diverse, ornate, and bizarre body art was found inrepparttar 147064 mysterious and complex world of Maya between 300 and 900 A.D. For Maya, body modification, whether temporary or permanent, were done for spiritual reasons as well as beautification. Full body tattoos or facial tattoos, were acquired by men and women.

When Captain James Cook set sail in his Endeavor in 1769, he visited many islands of Pacific Ocean, most of which included tattooing as part of their culture. It's Cook who gave usrepparttar 147065 "tattoo" word based on similar words in Polynesian cultures that were used to describerepparttar 147066 practice.

On boardrepparttar 147067 Endeavor was Sir Joseph Banks. Along with cataloging many types of animal and plant life, Banks documentedrepparttar 147068 indigenous cultures at every stop alongrepparttar 147069 way. Included in these notes are many references to tattooing. When Banks returned to England in 1771, he disembarked with a permanent memento of his voyage:repparttar 147070 very fist tattoo on a modern Western man!
