Why Do People Gamble Online? A Hypothesis

Gambling is as old as mankind, maybe older. If the dinosaurs ever had a civilization of their own they probably played games of chance just like the rest of us because even today we see animals taking risks when they hunt or fish.

How Hair Loss Hurts Your Self-confidence

Rarely do we find teens & young adults in their early twenties with baldness issues. Men in their 30s & 40’s are the most common sufferers of extensive hair loss, although it isn’t abnormal for men in their late 20’s to experience thinning hair as well. Modern society dreads the idea of aging and we put a great deal of value into reversing or delaying it as much as possible.

I'm not sure online gambling is fully legal in the United States but I have seen gambling news headlines for stories about changes to state laws where online gambling will now be permitted in some areas. The US Congress outlawed most types of online gambling in 2006, crushing the gambling affiliate industry in this country.
