JH: How many lives does a man need?
JMD: A man needs as many lives as he can keep track of. There are so many things that can go wrong. It’s best that a guy stack things in his favor by playing with a couple or, better, a hundred extra sets of cards. Perhaps, that’s the issue with HouseGuy_42. He’s only working with two lives, and one of them is barely a life at all, so when things go wrong . . . Unfortunately, a lot of us (including myself) aren’t too good at multitasking, and in that is the problem.
