When Is It Time To Stop Gambling?

Written by Ryan D.

Do you sometimes wish you could continue gambling for just a few more minutes? Do you stop when you've had enough of a good time or because your money has run out? Here are some budget-stretching ideas.

You can use four basic methods to make your casino money last longer. The first speaks for itself - bet low! Find games where it's cheap to play, or at least no more than a small portion of your budget. If you come with a few hundred dollars, go forrepparttar nickel or penny slot games. If your balance is a few thousand dollars, play Blackjack for a dollar or two per hand.

If you stick torepparttar 138595 inexpensive games, evenrepparttar 138596 worst player should be happy to call it quits beforerepparttar 138597 funds run out. Objective achieved!

Our second suggestion for saying goodbye torepparttar 138598 casino when you're tired but not broke is to bet intelligently in a game whererepparttar 138599 odds are favorable or at least reasonable. Here we'd recommend Baccarat if you're willing to bet on Player or, preferably, Banker - and you'll discipline yourself never to put a wager on a tie. You can also linger a while at Craps as long as you wager only on Pass/Don't Pass and meticulously go forrepparttar 138600 Odds bets. Another good alternative isrepparttar 138601 slots games where payout ratios are high; if they're above 98 percent, give it a go. Never automatically assume thatrepparttar 138602 payouts are this good - check first!

Even when adoptingrepparttar 138603 strategy based on encouraging odds and placing only smart wagers, it's advisable to come in with a worthwhile balance. In general, your minimum bankroll should be between 50 and 100 times as much asrepparttar 138604 cost of a single bet. If your pockets are not that full, our first method is better suited to you.

The third technique that should keep you going for some length of time is to play a game where things happen slowly, not because of a bad Internet connection but to make your money last longer.

Audible Books: The Evolution of Story Telling

Written by Jesse S. Somer

Inrepparttar days of old, stories were usually told orally from a tribal storyteller or one ofrepparttar 138594 wise elders or chiefs. The next progression in storytelling came withrepparttar 138595 first hieroglyphics and visual representations of actual and mythical events. After that camerepparttar 138596 evolution of written languages and alphabets, eventually culminating inrepparttar 138597 printing press that appeared only a few hundred years ago. Books have becomerepparttar 138598 main medium for people to tell both tales of fiction and reality and they literally (no pun intended) have taken overrepparttar 138599 world. Millions and millions of books have been written, read, stuck in huge libraries, worshipped, banned, censored, and even burnt because of their perceived potential and powerful effects on societies. The previous century sawrepparttar 138600 advent of film that brought 'life' to many books and subsequently have become one ofrepparttar 138601 most popular forms of entertainment in our world. Now however, withrepparttar 138602 Information Age have come E books, and a very exciting new arrival: audible books. Audible books have ensured that books will still be one ofrepparttar 138603 main storytelling mediums for generations to come.

The Internet has brought so many new ways for us to communicate with each other, but here I will focus mainly onrepparttar 138604 area of literature. If you aren't good at typing, or have some kind of illness that prevents bodily movement, there are now voice recognition software packages that turn your voice into words onrepparttar 138605 monitor and thusrepparttar 138606 sheet of paper. Onrepparttar 138607 other hand, there is now technology that uses voice synthesis to convert text into spoken audio for audio books.

Recently I went on a trip by car with my parents forrepparttar 138608 first time in many years as I hadrepparttar 138609 opportunity to get to visit my girlfriend as she lives inrepparttar 138610 same city as they were visiting. The reason why I haven't travelled with them for so long is that our personalities often clash and in a confined space over a length of time it can become unbearable for all those involved. I was still a little dubious ofrepparttar 138611 trip ahead but my Dad said that he had an audible book that we could listen to onrepparttar 138612 way through his Apple Ipod. He has a connection called Itrip that you connect fromrepparttar 138613 music device torepparttar 138614 cigarette lighter and thenrepparttar 138615 book is heard through any unused radio frequency. This particular story was meant to be a science fiction novel called 'Ender's Game' by Orson Scott Card. I hadn't read Sci-Fi in a long time so I wasn't really looking forward to it, but my Dad assured me that his friend had told him that it was very good.
