Apparently When The Fun Stops, is directly related to when you start.

The American Psychological Association has released a study which asserts that the possibility of developing a gambling problem increases if you start later in life. I can't seem to find a copy of the exact study online, but there is a very confusing article about it via the Press of Atlantic City. The AC Press article makes it seem like everyone who gambles, eventually develops a "problem".

Perhaps the below paragraph should be prefaced with "Of those who developed gambling addiction... "

women who began gambling later in life started at about age 49 and experienced gambling problems at about the age of 60. Men began gambling at an average age of 37 and began having problems at about age 60.

So science now supports what we all knew... it's a good idea to teach your kids about gambling as well as booze, sex and drugs. Surprise surprise... just don't bring em to Vegas, k thx.

I truly believe that flipping baseball cards had a helluva lot to do with gambling proclivities, including stacking the deck, dealing from the bottom, and convincing my opponents that Ron Guidry was a lousy pitcher and they would be much better off flipping away his New York Yankees rookie card.
