      It takes a Loving Parent 5 seconds to tell their kids to "Go Play Outside ! and be back in time for dinner !" Do Not purchase playstations or xboxes ! Get kids a basketball and a bicycle instead. :-)

                                I think this can be applied to people that have bad gambling issues because where I live...casinos run this town and the people addicted will play for days straight and have been known to defecate right here they play so they don’t miss a opportunity to win. It’s a sad moment really
