Ok, I see.
I've been addicted to horse racing.
Nearly 60 yrs now.
Started about 10yo.
Not the gambling so much, but the puzzle.
The wagering results are really just a measure of success.
Other than that, the desire for money doesn't trouble me too much.
Not beyond life's basics it doesn't.
Good luck with your thread.

I have to say, Shame portrays the lonliness of being unable to connect to people intimately better than any movie I have ever seen. It is good to know that you are not the only one with this sort of struggle. Thank you Michael Fassbender for your soulful performance. I was floored.

I just did not connect to this Movie at all found it rubbish .......did not impact on me at all I did not feel anything for the characters found it shallow and very conservative unlike,Hunger which I really loved by McQueen and Fassbender but this one was diabolical did not deserve to win the Oscar it was weak.
