Well, I guess I really shouldn’t be shocked by this development. I mean, people aren’t exactly known for being logical beings. If humans were logical, the black plague would not have claimed so many people, the Spanish Inquisition would not have been such a big deal, and the Dark Ages would never have happened. The way things are, people are not logical and as such, we like to pretend that there are ways to control the whims of fortune and alter the laws of probability in our favor. So, with a system for the dice game of craps in existence, I have decided to drive another nail in the coffin of collective human logic.

You see, science may be a complex thing but it has provided me with a simple enough mantra to keep in mind while playing craps. There is no pattern to the game, unless the dice is fixed or loaded. However, for the benefit of the doubt, let us examine the points that the system claims to be based upon, if only to gain an understanding as to how the system is supposed to function.

The system, developed by one Mike Stone, is centered around a controlled throw of the dice. Now, that actually sounds halfway sensible, now that I think about it. If you can control, exactly, the force and the speed you throw the dice, you can have a reasonable degree of control over which numbers will pop up when you toss the die. However, as I continued to think (because that’s what human beings do; think) I realized that there was a flaw.

Human bodies, even those of identical twins, are very different from one another. A person who doesn’t realize just how strong he actually is may not be able to effectively control his throw. Human bodies are just one big pile of variables that make creating a single method for controlling throws a rather complex affair. Far too complex to even be attempted by one man, if you consider things.

Also, why in the world would I be inclined to buy a craps system from a person who spells “annalist” instead of “analyst?” If you don’t know the difference, I suggest you get friendly with a dictionary right quickly. Sorry, this is one gambling incident that is not going to happen.
