Default Bluescouse in freefall

Having bust his six-figure roll, Ed is now borrowing money to play:

"i've been lent 3k more, but this time i have to pay back 3500 by the start of next month and 100 extra for every week after that."

http://88percent.blogspot.com/

Needless to say he's got to work losing this money already, writing the next day:

"deposited 1k into crypto, played 5/10, lost 300, put 700 more in and got upto 2100 before losing it all. played real loose and bad."

He did put down a deposit on a house, but it doesn't look like he can meet the mortgage repayments since he doesn't have a job and is losing thousands a week gambling.

Doesn't look like there's going to be a happy ending here, folks!

You mean the story about the degenerate gambler who constantly plays over his head isn't going to end well? Get outta here!

At least I recognise I need a desk job, and I'm not borrowing big money off people or getting into debt.

"didn't play for a couple of days. then i put 1k in, got up to 5k, withdrew the 1k and lost the 4k (this over the last 3 days). i'll re-deposit 1k more into crypto tomorrow probably and see how it goes.

thankfully i don't feel too bad at all right now, since everton are top of the league and look good for the title. otherwise i'd probably be more concerned about the pressing matter of paying the bills for the upcoming months."

Jim shouldn't you empathise with the guy; instead of ridiculing him?

I do emphasise with the guy. And I'm not ridiculing him.
