Roulette Systems: Are you sure they work?

Written by GameTime

Have you ever seen someone placing bet after bet onrepparttar roulette table. How about watching that bet double, quadruple, and so on. Many gamblers haverepparttar 147676 belief that you can play a system such as Martingale, High 12 or Low 12 and when a ton of money onrepparttar 147677 game. Unfortunately these gambles are never going to strike it rich. The formula –x + (-y) = -z shows whererepparttar 147678 impossibility occurs. When you add two negative numbers, x and y, you still end up with negative number z. No regressive betting system will ever prevail on roulette.

I know you may be skeptical and think that red or black, even or odd, 1-18 or 19-36, should pretty much hit 50% ofrepparttar 147679 time withrepparttar 147680 exception ofrepparttar 147681 0 and 00. I have seen 11 blacks in a row. I have also seen huge droughts of even, odd or any other combination. Just think if you were playing Martingale where your bet would be: 5, 10, 20, 40, 80, 160, 320, 640, 1280, 2560, and you still haven’t made it torepparttar 147682 11th bet, not to mention you have reachedrepparttar 147683 table max and bet over $5000 just to win a $5 bet when you eventually do win.

Birthstone Origins: Stranger than Fiction

Written by Sam Serio

Inrepparttar Old Testament,repparttar 147645 book of Exodus tellsrepparttar 147646 story ofrepparttar 147647 Breastplate of Aaron, used in religious ceremonies. (Aaron…just in case you were absent from Sunday school that day…wasrepparttar 147648 Biblical figure who performed, at Moses' direction,repparttar 147649 miracles that confounded Pharaoh and his magicians.) Aaron's breastplate was adorned with four rows of gemstones, three gemstones in each row, inrepparttar 147650 following pattern: Sardius, topaz, carbuncle; emerald, sapphire, diamond; ligure, agate, amethyst; beryl, onyx, jasper. These twelve gemstones representedrepparttar 147651 twelve tribes of Israel. The twelve positions were later co-opted by astologers who linked them torepparttar 147652 twelve months ofrepparttar 147653 calendar year andrepparttar 147654 twelve signs ofrepparttar 147655 zodiac. The Traditional Birthstone List contains these older birthstones and represents birthstone traditions heralding back torepparttar 147656 15th century. The Modern Birthstone List was created byrepparttar 147657 National Association of Jewelers in 1912 in Kansas City, Missouri. Gemstone purists complained thatrepparttar 147658 NAJ list was devised solely for commercial purposes (they probably didn't believe in Santa Claus either!). As a result, astrologers who prescribed gems often substituted alternate or secondary stones. The Mystical Birthstone list below originated in from Tibet over a thousand years ago. The Ayurvedic Birthstone list is derived from age-old Ayurvedic Indian Medicine, a practice of native people for more than a century.
