    Back in the 50s we had a guy called Horace Bachelor who had an idea that made him rich. He sold a method (system) for winning the football pools and advertised it on commercial radio. He sold millions and every week users of his system won something on the pools (and of course so did people not using his system and even more using it or not won nothing). No one ever seemed to think "if its so sure why are you selling it, why are you not just sitting at home and every week wining large amounts of moolah"
    No brainer - Because even when it didn't work he still got paid. And because the people who ran the pools probably offered to break his arms and legs if he played it himself.
