Anyone who believes a single thing in this deserves to lose in Vegas
5 July 2019 | by eovalSee all my reviews

The premise of this show is that 'random' doesn't exist. It cites the idea of a casino controlling the odds. If that doesn't make one see the idiocy of what it presents, then that person should go dump loads of money gambling.

People who buy into the idea that a 50/50 coin flip isn't a 50/50 chance are SERIOUSLY not good at math or logic.
