History on this daday.. FATMASP.

      Another incidence of Fatmasp occurred on this day in the year 1917.
On October 3 in 1917, the first automatic totalizator used in Australia officially opens at Randwick(Sydney) Racecourse, installed by the Sydney Jockey Club.
     The building in the paddock has 40 windows for selling tickets. However, it only has 30 windows to pay winnings.
     Lesson. "There is no cure for stupidity"
