Ok, I get it. Some of you aren't "mathboyz.". Going out on a limb though, I'm going to assume that at least some of you that aren't "mathboyz" are hopefully at least "literate boyz.". If you are, then why do you assume that all of the experts and mathematicians are wrong, based on what they've written? After all, they comprehend the math and basic probability, but you guys don't since you're not one of the "mathboyz!"
If I were you, I think I'd make an effort to learn the math and basic probability, rather than trying to make it cool to be ignorant.
Either you have the edge or you don't. You can't beat a negative expectation game in the long run for the same reason that you can't multiply a negative number times a positive number and produce a positive outcome. Money management, gaming discipline don't make a dent in the long run expectation.
Sorry, just the facts
Literate and I don't suck at math!
