Fun meta-game to play when you buy a poker/card game (Like Poker Night at the Inventory 2).

Log onto the forums about six hours after play.

Read the threads people swearing up and down about cheating, not knowing what luck is.

Gamers, in general, just do not seem to understand how luck works. As in 'A 9% chance to win still means he'll win nearly 1 in 10 games. He COULD get lucky).

You see similar crap in Magic the Gathering Online games. A friend of mine swore up and down that the game would 'stack' decks if a player lost too much (Because he sucked) and THAT'S why he would sometimes get mana-screwed. When I pointed out that happened in RL games PLENTY often, he'd swear up and down there was a 'pattern'.

Naturally, the pattern is that whenever he lost, the game was cheating. Never could convince him of that.
