I'm probably one of the least risky people going - whatever I do I keep one foot (metaphorically) on the ground whilst reaching out with the other - but I can imagine this happening all too easily to anyone given the opportunity.... anyone like to bet he did it for the buzz as much as the money?
(no odds on that - I'm risk averse, remember <g>)
I liked the became so hooked he used the Internet up to 30 times a day while sitting at his desk at work bit - god knows what they'd say about some scalping day-trader who was making 30 trades a minute...
I only use it once most days,
I turn it on the first chance I get, and they prise my cold, seemingly lifeless fingers from the mouse in time to pack me off to bed when all reason has departed several hours later.
(A bit of an exaggeration really, reason's departure isn't something that usually takes all that long <g>)
