Facebook isn’t public enemy #1, Sports Handicappers are
For the last couple of weeks the world has been outraged with the Facebook security breach and to be honest, I think its kind of bullshit. Is Facebook taking our personal information unbeknownst to us and selling it on the black market like human organs? Innocent until I get a popup ad for a one-stop shop with my Facebook information next to a human liver. Regardless our society is demonizing the wrong group of people by attacking Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook as a whole.
Sports Handicappers have been conducting insider trading for years and no one bats an eye. Think about it, they always know when the starting quarterback or point guard is fighting with his or her significant other (its 2018) or will be extremely hungover for the game and the handicappers set the line accordingly. Then dumbasses and suckers look at the line and say: “What a steal, it’s a lock,” and proceed bet it and lose all of their money…hand up. The fact that the SEC and FBI haven’t looked into this is flat out appalling.
All I’m saying is if Facebook takes my information and puts it out there so that an identity thief can have it, it’s not the end of the world. However if I blow all of my money on sucker bets, then I have some real world problems. Hell if someone stole my identity it’d probably be a good thing anyway. The way I look at is if someone steals my identity, then when my bookie comes looking for me, there is a 50/50 he finds the wrong guy. That would be a 2 birds 1 stone scenario, because the identity thief sure as shit ain’t gonna wanna be me anymore and it gives me more time to go on Facebook, steal someone else’s identity and hide from my bookie. Hell now that I think about it, I hope my identity is out there on the black market. If Facebook’s security breach means its harder for my bookie to trace me down, then I’m all for it. If you think I’m crazy, then ask yourself this question: “What’s more important, your credit score or your life?” The moment we place a higher value on credit scores than life, is the moment when we have truly digressed as a society. You can’t argue with that logic.
As a society, we need to focus on the real issues at hand and stop attacking Mark Zuckerberg and focus our efforts on ending insider trading in sports gambling. Justice will be served!
Also does anyone know why I keep getting Gambler’s Anonymous ads on my Facebook page?
