Engano urbano

    Século vinte e um. Tecnologia avançadíssima, bastando apenas um toque de dedos para clicar algum botão e, de repente, abre-se, à nossa frente, um mundo mágico…
            Contrastando a isso, o básico do básico parece ficar esquecido, relegado a um canto de tanto ser básico, e, assim desaprendemos ou nem aprendemos a lidar com o banal, perdendo-se então o controle de todo controle…
            Caminho pela ladeira com o molho de chaves do apartamento que acabei de receber da imobiliária, a fim de alugá-lo, caso seja do nosso agrado: meu e do meu companheiro.
            Muito embora muitas avenidas já possuam controle de semáforo, para que o pedestre atravesse em “segurança”, além de faixas exclusivas para ônibus, alguns bairros parecem pertencer a outro país, tamanha é sua deficiência básica: falta iluminação nas ruas, redes de esgoto e água, asfalto… faltas essas que favorecem à “sobra” da violência que se espalha na escuridão dos becos, nos assaltos, estupros, assassinatos…
            São 10 horas da manhã de uma radiante quarta-feira de primavera e nós vamos seguindo ruas, virando esquinas até encontrarmos a entrada do prédio.
            Com o molho de chaves na mão, não foi muito difícil achar a pequena chave que abre a portaria. Subimos as escadas e lá está o número do apartamento: 202. Já, a chave da porta confunde-se com outras que se encontram no chaveiro. Porém, estamos com tempo, e, assim, vamos testando pacientemente a chave que abrirá a porta.
            De repente, a porta dos fundos do mesmo apartamento abre-se abruptamente e um homem com um calibre 38 na mão, avança em nossa direção, enquanto berra:
            _ Parados aí! Como se atrevem a abrir o meu apartamento?
           Ainda não sei descrever, ao certo, a sensação de pânico que nos invadiu. Mas já era capaz de sentir a bala do revólver estilhaçando nosso corpo e o sangue rolando escada abaixo.
           A voz para a explicação teve de ser arrancada à força de dentro da garganta, já que o susto a sufocara:
       _ Peraí, moço, somos gente boa! Recebemos a chave da imobiliária e viemos conhecer o apartamento para alugá-lo…
            _ Como é que é? Alugar o apartamento que aluguei há um mês?
            _ O senhor já mora aí?
            _ Claro! O que eu estaria fazendo lá dentro se não morasse aqui?
            _ Bem, nesse caso, entregaram-nos a chave do apartamento errado. O senhor sabe se tem outro apartamento aqui para alugar?
            _ Não tem. Tenho certeza.
            Bruscamente ele tomou o molho de chaves da nossa mão e buscou conferir se alguma chave abria a sua porta. Achou e a abriu.
            Não acreditou. Nem nós acreditamos.
            Ele, por saber da insegurança em que se encontrava, achando-se seguro dentro de casa, ao menos.
           Nós, por saber que poderíamos ter sido mortos ao nos confundir com um assaltante, quando apenas buscávamos por mais segurança.
           Estupefatos ao devolver o molho de chaves e dedicar à imobiliária alguns desaforos, fomos surpreendidos pela funcionária que nos afirmou que enganos como esse acontecem vez por outra.
           Esse tipo de erro é urbano, e desumano!
            “Bala perdida mata criança no Rio.”
            “Brasileiro é morto por engano, ao ser confundido com terrorista.”
            “Pedreiro fica preso por engano durante dois anos.”
            “Dentista negro confundido com traficante é assassinado pela polícia.”

  9. Gambling has long been a tabooed subject in many societies; in fact, a lot of people believe it
    to be a kind of gambling. However, a lot of people still enjoy the excitement and thrill
    that come together with gambling; therefore, the
    reason there are casinos all over the world. Gambling has even made its way into popular culture,
    with reality shows like”The Weakest Link” where people play slots.

    Quarantee (red and black) is possibly the most recognized type of casino game,
    and probably the one with the highest degree of interest among gamblers.

    It’s often compared to a cross between slots and poker, because it requires the participant to place bets based on the cards that come out of
    the quarante deck. Even though the specific mechanics of how these bets are made is largely unknown, it’s usually thought that
    a standard deck of 52 cards is used in every game. In addition to
    the cards that come from this quarante deck, the player must also choose a
    hand of cards that will make up the winning combination. The most common types
    of bets are the win, place, show, and complete house.

    There are basically two types of bets in quarantine. First, the players can either bet on the total
    amount of the pot (or bet ); or they could bet on the total amount of cards that come out of the
    quarante deck. If no cards come out during a quarante match,
    then the player must call, raise, or fold. There are generally
    three different betting bets in each game: win, cover, and half-pay.

    Traditionally, the traditional Italian card game, tarantella, was played at the St Regis Hotel.
    This particular version of the game involved a tableau de quarante where
    all of the players would sit at particular places on the guarantee
    row. In this sort of game, there were red and black rooms,
    with the winning player being the player who was able to complete
    their last five cards until the other players finished theirs.

    Today, there are literally hundreds of variations of the
    standard French card game, et noir. In fact, the most common variation is only a variation on the black and
    red rooms. In most versions, there are four suites;
    a black package, a red suite, and a blue package. The players can win by laying down a total of twenty-one free cards, including one card from each of the four suites.
    Once all players have lost their cards, the dealer randomly selects one card from each of
    the four suites and places it in the middle
    of the quarante table.

    Today, the term”quarante” means”of or relating to quarantining.” Traditionally, the game was known as”trente et noir” that meant playing cards with names.
    It has also been known as”trente” and”ne monetaire” in the French speaking world.
    Today, it refers only to card games which contain playing cards with names.

    Traditionally, the game was always played between two people seated across a small table; however,
    in America it is usually played at a bar or lounge.
    Each individual dealt three cards face down, one at a time to one another.
    If anyone got rid of one of those three cards, then they had to switch places with the person who they had dealt with the first card to.
    The person who dealt the last card, in turn, then had to get rid of the hand by passing another card to the person they passed it to.

    The”quaint” version of this game is available for people who want to play something a little
    more simple. Although there are variations on how to play the game,
    the basic rules remain the same. The object is still the same, to form the greatest possible hand without
    having any cards left to spare. This can be achieved with ease, especially if you’ve already
    mastered the fundamentals of playing the game of blackjack, because the fundamental rules of this card game are
    very easy to learn and master. The basic concept of the game of”monte carlo” remains the same, since
    it is a simple game which can be played by almost anyone.
