Risk-taking

The Fourth Checkraise read a book about Las Vegas gamblers:

The most amusing single observation of the book for me was noting that every single one of these high-stakes gamblers has been broke several times in his career, but they don’t care, since there is nothing to be afraid of in being broken, because America just is so wealthy that the material difference between a millionaire and regular guy is so small that they don’t need to care about it.
