XDBX vs STNC @ Two Bros
Next Saturday we will play against The Lowly Gentlemen (STNC) at our Two Bros event.
It will be limited to 8 players (8 vs 8 ) and we are mixing races with adversary modes.
These guys are fast and will come prepared, we will count the scoring in the races from 16 down to 1 points. (16,15,14...)

I will use the setting from Clash of the crews for the Adversary modes for the jobs we have used.

Non-contact, customs on.

The playlist: https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/ps4/playlists/playlist/QHrbvYpEX0esy6fdenNT6Q

The NeverEnding Story [XDBX Film Club 07]
This month we are stretching our imaginations to the limits as we explore the worlds of fantasy.  The winning film is The NeverEnding Story, nominated by @Spinnaker1981, directed by Wolfgang Peterson (Air Force One, The Perfect Storm) in 1984.

A film about the power of the imagination, the importance of self-indentity and the awesomeness of books, The NeverEnding Story can rightly sit up there with Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal in the pantheon of awesome 80s puppet fantasy movies.


I haven't seen this since I was very young, and I can't remember much about it, but I do remember being traumatised by what happens to Artax the horse, and having the theme song stuck in my head for ages, so I'm looking forward to revisiting this and seeing if it holds up as well as Labyrinth does.


There up on a rainbow is the answer to our neverending story

Betting on the Horses
I've been keeping track of the results of horse races in the casino, since they updated it, and this is what I have found. I will update this as I get more data. I think there's enough to be sure of the main conclusion though. It has changed since they released this. The chances of winning by betting on horse one are not as good as they were originally, but you should stil be able to gurantee a profit if you know when not to bet or just make a small bet.

Brief explanation of how R* have set this up.

6 horses in the race


Horse 1 and Horse 2 always have odds between evens and 5:1


most of the time Horse 1 is the favourite, sometimes they have the same odds




Horses 3,4,5, & 6 always have odds of at least 6:1



 

Main conclusion: If horse1 is evens and ALL other horses have greater odds the chance of horse 1 winning is 0.58, based on 74 races.

 

Other situations

horse1 and horse2 have the same odds, chance of horse1 winning is 0.36, based on 28 races


horse1 is 2:1, ALL others 3:1 or longer odds, chance of horse 1 winning is 0.48, based on 27 races


27 races isn't a lot so maybe with more data this will turn out to be worth betting on horse1




horse1 is longer odds than 2:1. all others longer odds than horse 1, chance of horse 1 winning is 0.35, based on 40 races


I have not bothered trying to calculate the chances of horses at the longer odds winning.



 

 

So if you only place large bets on horse 1 when it is the clear favourite, i.e. it is even odds, horse 2 is 2:1 or longer, you would expect to make decent money.

 

If horse2 is the same odds as horse 1 or horse 1 is not evens, then don't bet, or least do not put a big bet on horse 1. Either back out (press O) and try again, hoping you get a different race with better odds, or just for fun put a small bet on any horse you like.

Monday Motor Mayhem Mischief and Merriment
Monday Motor Mayhem, Mischief, and Merriment (M5)
A racing and driving focused weekly playlist that is in the evening EU time.
May have the occasional combat or adversary job, but again vehicle focused.
While it may bear some striking similarities to TNT, and may even feature some of the same events, it most decidedly isn't TNT. It doesn't happen on Thursday.

A chance to enjoy the whole range of vehicles in the game, not just the best 5% of them.

They Live [XDBX Film Club 06]
JUST TWO MORE DAYS LEFT TO WATCH THIS CLASSIC !!!!
This month's film club is all about b-movies, and when you look towards the upper end of that genre you start seeing the name John Carpenter quite a lot.  Director of classic genre films like Halloween, The Thing, Assault on Precinct 13, Escape from New York and The Fog, the film of his we'll be watching this month is the anti-consumerism manifesto that is 1988's They Live, nominated by @Pb76.


In my opinion the best film ever made that stars a wrestler (sorry Dwane), They Live is based on a short story, Eight O'Clock in the Morning, by Ray Nelson, from 1963, and stars "Rowdy" Roddy Piper as John Nada, a drifter who survives by working day labour in downtown LA.  Finding a box of magic sunglasses in a church, he discovers that the world is populated and run by a race of malignant aliens who subliminally manipulate the human population to consume, conform, and obey, keeping them ignorant of the truth.  These aliens discover that Nada knows who they are and set about to stop him.

This film, like most of Carpenter's filmography, has had a huge impact on pop culture, from the design of the aliens (you'll recognise them from the masks in GTA at least), the messages to obey becoming a part of street art legend thanks to Shepard Fairey (check out the excellent documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop for more about that) and the six-minute long punch up Piper has with Keith David, which is one of the best fight scenes in film history and has inspired a number of imitators.  


I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass - and I'm all out of bubblegum.
