This is a question Gambling

Broke the bank at Las Vegas, or won a packet of smokes for getting your tinkle out in class? Outrageous, heroic or plain stupid bets.

Not about me but...
Before my Dad was born my Grandad was a merchant seaman but he wasn't getting paid as much as he'd like on the ship he was on so he quit.

Down on the docks he entered a poker game and won another guy's boat on a lucky hand.

I guess he used that boat for whatever work he could get his hands on as he ended up running guns to cuba and trafficking alcohol and cigars back to America.

He said it was one of the best times in his life and I will never forget his immortal words to me about his seafaring days:
'I tell you my dear, on shore it was all wine, women and song, but onboard ship it was rum, bum and concertina'.
