I could do the stuff James Bond did. I really could.
I read the book Casino Royale. I don't know why. It was terrible.
Here's what it was about. A French labor union leader has squandered union funds. He hopes to win the money back in a casino. Casino Royale. And James Bond must go there to undermine the French labor movement!
He goes to Monte Carlo. Some people try to kill him by lobbing a bomb at him, but the bomb goes off prematurely and they are killed.
Later, he plays this game in the casino. The game is purely a game of chance. There's no skill involved. He sits mindlessly betting money and rolling dice.
He wins the money.
Later, he is captured and tortured. But some people come and rescue him.
He didn't do a damn thing!
