    Russian Roulette's a TV show, not a gambling game.

    TPBM is a poker champ.

    russian roulette is a game played with a revolver, one live round and the rest blanks. A person 'wins' when they put the gun to their head, pull the trigger and they found the live round..

    and no, I'm not that good with poker, unless i am playing strip poker. then of course I win.

    TPBM didn't know the original term for 'russian roulette'

    Yes, moderately good understanding of the Mandarin dialect of Chinese, good speaking skills in the Cantonese dialect, some Spanish, some French, and usually pretty good English. I can read some German as well.

    TPBM has read Adlous Huxley's Brave New World.

    Sort of, I guess. I'm going to assume that you've never read the Dune series by Frank Herbert.

    TPBM has never heard of the Dune series by Frank Herbert.
