Uhh no. Just completely false.

But even besides traditional gambling, have you ever heard of this thing called the stock market?

BS. Many people gamble. I'd say that smart people know their limits better. But to say "smart people don't gamble" shows how out of touch you are. I'll gamble here and there but it's small amounts of money I'm OK with losing as long as I don't do it often and I take it for entertainment purposes.

Stop with your self importantance and listen.
