“…The way I looked at it, if I took $39 and went to buy groceries, I wouldn’t be able to get all that much. On the flipside, if I took $39 to a casino and lost it all, I wouldn’t be all that upset. With that said, I decided I was going to try something — I was going to take my roll of stamps and send 100 letters to 100 different companies, asking for free stuff. I figured that I couldn’t do any worse than blowing the $39 at a casino, and who knows… maybe a few of these places would actually send me something good.”
