A book written on a bet – popularity and millions of copies The next story began in the distant 1960, but is alive and well today – we are talking about a small book in English called Green Eggs and Ham. Its author, Dr. Seuss, bet his publisher Bennett Cerf that he would write a book of 50 (different) words, note that the author’s previous work consisted of 225 words.

He sold everything he owned, even his own house, and having raised $135,000, went to the entertainment capital of Las Vegas to spend all his money on a single bet.

She did not bring financial losses to her hero, but she nevertheless arranged cardinal changes. A resident of New Zealand once played poker with his comrades – it was their long tradition, an unpleasant moment came when the player had nothing to bet, but really wanted to win back. The decision was made – friends suggested that he put his name – or rather, change, in case of loss, his real name to a new one with the condition that it will consist of 99 letters. The game was short, but the name became long! The New Zealander lost and fulfilled his part of the contract – he officially changed his name to, now get ready to read a lot “Full Metal Havok, more sexy and intelligent than Spock and all other superheroes along with Supernova” in English it sounds like “Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Other Superheroes Combined With Frostnova”. In this case, even the initials are not fast. But on the other hand, this unfortunate poker player kept his word. Size matters – a man ready to do anything to win Let’s start with the fact that the hero of this story is already a well-known man Brian Zembik – a professional magician, a Black Jack gambler and a rather successful lover of big bets. In 2005, he took part in the second season of the World Series of Blackjack. He also has his own professional nickname – “The Magician”. What happened to him in 1996 could give us reason to think that the person just really needed money, but no – it’s all gambling. His loudest bet or bet became both visible and tangible – Mr. Zembik, at the age of 35, put breast implants of the third size on a bet, and a year later – the condition of the bet was that the “wizard” should live with a new breast for 12 months – he received 100,000 US dollars, which is about 160 thousand today. Another interesting fact is that Brian literally won the operation – having beaten his plastic surgeon, a gambling acquaintance, several times in backgammon. We don’t know if this can be considered a good bet, but we note that after a year the chest remained in place.
