In fact numbers are not names at all.
Names of numbers are like pointers to numbers but are not the numbers
pointed to or identified by those names.

It may be that the roulette wheels in Wolkenmuekenheim do not allow 33
to come up, but everywhere else there is a 33 on the wheel which comes
up on a long term average of once every 37 times in european casinos or
once every 38 times in USA casinos.

A good deal les rubbishy that a roulette wheel rigged never to come up
33.
