1/ "Fits at Chess" might seem like a punchline, but it's a real health concern 🧠. I've been exploring research papers on the negative effects of #Chess on well-being, societies, and ecosystems, and found the first report of chess triggering #epilepsy from 1965. #NorwayChess Image
2/ These cases fall into a category of reflex #epilepsy - seizures are activated by specific, identifiable triggers. Such triggers can be external (flashing lights, hot water 🚿), internal (emotions, thought 💭), or a mix of both.

3/ Among reflex #epilepsies, the most common are those triggered by visual stimuli or light changes (1 in 4,000). Much rarer triggers include eating 🍎, music 🎵(1:10 M), writing ✍️, orgasm 💋 and even lying. #Chess, other #boardgames, and #cards can also trigger seizures. Image

The Magpies’ SM reach isn’t huge but they sure did attract a Premier League star to their ground for Non League Day.

Once the blinds are placed, the dealer gives each player two cards. These are called the hole #cards , and they are the only cards that no other player sees. Once the hole cards are distributed, there is a round of betting. Since the blinds have already placed bets,… the player to the left of the big blind starts the betting round. To stay in the round, he must put in the value of the big blind. If he puts in just the amount of the big blind, he has called. If he decides to put in more than the amount of the big blind he can raise. In a $5/$10 limit game, he can call for $5 or raise for $10. He may also fold, choosing to put in no money at all. The player to his left can also opt to call, raise, or fold. If the first player raised, then calling would cost $10,

Six students from MIT in the early 2000s are recruited by a maths professor to illegally count #cards in the hopes of winning millions of dollars. Based on a true story, 21 depicts a group of intelligent maths students who learn how to trick the system… by taking advantage of their counting skills. This movie has drama, thrills, and action as the audience follows the team as they try to outrun law enforcement. There is a lot of adrenaline-rushing scenes with a few twists and turns in the story along the way. The Blackjack Team notoriously beat the house for almost 10 years before getting caught. The whole cast performs amazingly well to highlight the

Shaders requires an understanding of light and other basic principles that rules our perception. ⁦@pixelspiritdeck⁩ can be your guide on that path
00 VOID: The empty canvas. Full potential. The absence of light before creation. In this empty space the main() function lies alone.
01 JUSTICE: with the severity of a sword this card cuts the space judging. The step() function turns the gradient of the horizontal axis into oposites. The first argument, the threshold, divides between full & empty, active vs passive. Like Procrustes this card force his own rule
