Word of the day: insurance

Insurance is gamblingWelcome to another new feature here on the blog: The Demotivational Dictionary. This is where we take a normal everyday word and strip it down to what it really means and/or look at it in a whole new light.

Today’s word:

insurance – the most crass form of gambling invented by humans so far.

Bonus: This post, by the way, is a “tier-2” blog post. That means it is my second blog post on the same day – somewhat of a rarity around here.
