Channel duff karma to good outcomes

  [vote for,

I seem to have an endless supply of bad karma, I never win anything, I decided to use it for good. So, going to a bookies I put one quid on the brexit party winning the by- election. They lost. I lost one quid, but a sign of success. Next is Boris...really it needs an empirical study to the phenomenon better, would 2 quid give more oomph , 1 quid + pointing bone..etc

The Cream - never equalled [xenzag, Jun 07 2019]


       I'm betting on you continuing to lose. This seems to be working out very well.

       "Doing Evil that Good may come of it " is ethically dubious.   

       Very good, carry on.

       But Karma will soon catch on that you want the ‘bad’ result more than the £1

       ... in which case you'll win the bet.   

       There's some mileage in this. "Bet on the things you don't want". If they don't happened, you're happy; if they do, you get the money as a consolation.

       This idea was the first I'd heard of the by-election result.   

       First I thought "good: Farage's candidate didn't win".   

       Then I read a bit further into the news story, and found that the candidate who *did* win had previously liked some zionist- conspiracy post on Facebook.   

       Maybe, [nmrm], your karma is more cunning than you are. Try the Book of Job.

       I shall retreat to a place in the high Himalayas, and act as an imminent grease, controlling all. Except for the illuminati two doors down who refuse to turn off the lights at night, which is buggering up my star gazing, I can tell you.

       One quid on Boris for PM...

       One quid that Boris lasts less than 3 years.

       Hmm (wonders if pointing bone could be enhanced with a tesla coil?). But you just can't get the Igors these days.

       Got "Instant Karma's gonna get cha", in my head now and it won't leave. My karma? Perhaps?
