    Marilyn Manson interviewed him for Interview magazine, and Nic told a completely bizarre but totally believable story about the last time he ever gambled.

    "The last time I gambled was about 30 years ago. I was in the Bahamas, and I walked into a casino and felt like I had my mojo with me, like nothing could go wrong," the story began.

    "My game was roulette. I went in with $200, and I didn’t miss a number, so much so that even the lady spinning the wheel said, 'Nothing sweeter than a repeater.'"

    "In 20 minutes, I turned $200 into $20,000, so I went and found an orphanage in the Bahamas, met all the kids and the headmistress, and said, 'This is for you.'"

    "I put the 20 grand in her hand, walked away, and never gambled again, because if I did, it would ruin the power of that moment."
