What's the most stupid thing you've heard a non-gambler said about gambling?

I'm sure most of us are unlucky enough to be surrounded by 'civilians' who are against gambling because 'gambling's bad cry cry I'm so morally superior for not gambling.' It's the most frustrating when they're your close friends and family. So let's have a collective rant (hail Marx!) as to the most ridiculous thing you've heard a non-gambler said.

I'll get the ball rolling. Josh Emil Rodner, a friend of my weed dealer, uttered these blasphemous words on April 24th 2019: "You're crazy if you think you can win big at a casino and get away with it. They'll send people to beat you up in an alley or something to take the money back. Or ELse hOw wOuLd tHeY MAke A ProFiT??"

Your turn.

I am married to Indonesian so whenever I go there I always hear how "gambling is so bad" and breaks the life of people. Which is true by the way in some cases. But there are guys that bet on chicken fights and lose tons of money. Anyway, the uncle of my wife is pastor and he needs to say to the local community how gambling is so bad, bla bla etc... And after the service finished he told me "Hey, you wanna go tomorrow to see that cock fights?". I was like stunned. :D I did not go by the way.

Yeah I know some people ruin their lives with gambling but almost anything can ruin your life if you're addicted to it imo. And I have nothing to say for the cock fights haha. Apparently it's not gambling if we do it in the backyard :)

to me it is funni when nonbettors say its imposible to win consistantly in the bettling world! The betting game boils down to 2 things
1- having an edge over the bookies
2- having solid bet plan

It's true, you can even win from betting just from arbitrage. Without risking money.

Typical nonbettors' comeback: "But the bookies will influence the result of the match!"

Gamblers saying that you should put your money where the odds are higher but the truth of the matter is that the odds are always against them.

I respectfully disagree. Isn't it better to give yourself a better potential profit by picking the best odds out of all websites?

And if you follow a sport intensively enough, you can tell when the oddsmakers are overlooking an underrated 'underdog'.

I’ve heard a lot of times from my relatives that it’s about devil and all of that gambling is just not right. Also, my father used to say that if you are gambling, you are selling your soul. I guess it’s just because they don’t understand it, they cannot stand the idea that they are working hard, day after day to make some miserable money, and I just go to a place like noaccountscasino and make ten grants in a day. I know, it’s frustrating if you don’t understand the whole point so that’s why they are getting mad at us, gamblers. Well, that is my point of view on this specific situation.

A girl from my biochem class once heard that I like gambling and she told me that I’m a devil worshiper lol.
