A Gambling Man.

Ahmad ibn Rustah was a 10th century Persian explorer who wrote about "a certain king of Caucasus":

"He prayed on Fridays with the Muslims, on Saturdays with the Jews and on Sundays with the Christians. 'Since each religion claims that it is the only true one and that the others are invalid', the king explained, 'I have decided to hedge my bets.'"
Reminds me of Yann Martel's book, Life of Pi.

I don't see anything wrong with online gambling as long as their are safeguards in place to protect problem gamblers. When you play online, you can play at your own pace, with no noise, no smoking, and lower stakes.
