I like to think about translation like access to fresh water. Not so long ago — and still in many parts of the world — getting water was hard. You’d get up first thing in the morning, get a bucket, walk (sometimes for miles) and then come back and do it again.
But then it became easier thanks to technology.

I don’t gamble very often. When I do, I tend to lose. These two facts established, you can probably guess that I spend very little time in casinos. When I do venture into one, however, I’m there for hours. Why, you ask? We’ve already recognized that card games are no friend of mine.
