Trying To Lose

My cunning plan to reduce my Premium Charges each week by investing on football isn't quite going according to plan. The idea is to break even, and have the Implied Commission reduce my net liability. Unfortunately, the system has proved rather more profitable than planned and if it keeps on like this, I am going to have to develop a horse-racing system to increase my losses.

Maybe I should subscribe to Graeme Dand's new subscription service? http://theexperiment-self-indulgentbullshit.blogspot.com/

After a trial month which he himself admits has been nothing short of terrible, he's seriously expecting people to pay for his analysis and tips starting from next month. I guess there's one born every minute, but really, if I'm thinking of buying a car, borrow it for a month, and 28 days that month it fails to start, I'm probably going to pass on it. Actually, in Graeme's case the car did quite often start - the engine just gave out during the run.

Which brings me to my next idea. Perhaps I should start offering my football selections for a month? If they mostly lose, then I'll start charging for them, but if they mostly win, then I'll start charging for them too.

Thanks for the anonymous comment Robert! :)

I agree 100% with you concerning the month and how bad it has been but a little harsh to judge someone on 26 days IMO....

One bad month can't undo lots of previous good work mate.

Judge me in the long-run....

Cheers,

P.S. Cheers for the advert. You could at least have put a link to my web site mate.

No anonymous comments from me Graeme - but I did see you've been deleting a few! Good luck with your scheme.

That was a bit of a low comment wasn’t it Robert…!
I thought blogging was supposed to be about creating a community…
I’ve been reading your blog since it’s inception – I thought you were a reasonable guy – funny how it you can be enlightened about someone in the most unexpected way…
You’ll have one less reader from now on.
Bye !

Andrew - which comment was a bit low? I call it as I see it. Horse racing isn't my thing, but I did take an interest in Graeme's original goal. However, he seems to have lost his way and after a terrible month as he himself admits, surely even you can see the irony in him trying to charge people money when he hasn't proven the product at all? I'm not sure where you get the idea from that blogging is about creating a community - the definition is A blog (a contraction of the term "Web log") is a Web site, usually maintained by an individual [1], with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries.
Nothing there about a community.
