not finished yet, but it sumarises why i quit gambling.

I read about an experiment where a mice had electrodes planted in the pleasure center of the brain and could activate them by pushing a button.
the mice pushed on the button until it fell from exaustion.
this reminded me of gamblers that loose thousands and sometimes millions of dollars by pushing the spin button until the money runs out.

Thanks in advance for ideas or critiques.

The way the mouse is so very focused on the reels with its red eyes is quite scary.
He knows the reel won't stop at the third 7 :)))

Really awesome piece. Very expressive! Brought up a lot of feelings...

Hope it cashed out at some point.:D
it tried, but when faced with a 24-hour pending period it went mental and sent the electrodes into meltdown and self-combusted.


Unfortunately it appears the addiction is spreading - we can have a Tom & Jerry dedicated episode regarding problem gambling.
