good advice: two days ago my friend just died with cancer and to sit here and be on a death watch isn't a very enjoyable event , live about 10 days longer than given.... like watching a person starve to death , nothing one can do ...

this is disgusting and
totally heartless.

anyone who would do this should put themselves in the shoes of cancer patients, then tell the world how much fun it is.

Not sure I understand the edge...
The Chinese are major league bettors, and generally they figure the probabilities, true or implied, before laying odds.
Not at all clear on how they do this in this case.

Given an edge, gamblers will wager on anything.

WOW (what a title topix) If I myself was a betin' Gal,I would have to say that the person has been in GOD's hands for awhile now. If the Lord wants back one on his Precious Gifts then no moment could be more prefect then his choosen moment.
