    My understanding is you play for long periods of time while breaking even or losing a few bets then when you finally hit a royal flush you cash out and leave. Rinse and repeat

    Maybe, I don't know either way more time and money is required than what I have.

    Video poker advantage play is pretty dead nowadays. There are a couple "jacks or better" setups that break even, and with perfect play and some good comps/promotions can be profitable (and there is the odd opportunity here and there on other video poker games), especially if you like staying in casinos and consider comps to be profit.

    Yeah, he has put out some great pieces about voter suppression and the interstate cross check system designed by Kris Kobach to disenfranchise voters. I met him once. I called him Jack Palance. I was high.

    Interesting article. I get that it was difficult to see the privileged automatically advance while being on the outside looking in. At the same time he was still able to advance beyond the average middle class experience which is not a possibility in many countries. I made it but I'm still pissed, seems to be what he's saying if I'm reading it right.

    Watching film of the scene is awkward. So many dudes trying to calm women down saying "guns don't sound like that". So many women complaining about the discomfort of either ducking or running.

    I can't even get my girlfriend to look away if I spot a coworker at the grocery store and I'm trying to avoid them. Attempting to keep her safe in a situation like Mandalay would be a waste of time. She'd still do what makes sense in her head and it would get me killed.

    So this guy is saying gets it and understands killing 50+ random people because Paddock just didn't quite get the chances his big brain deserved? Wtf? The dude was a millionaire by all accounts. Apparently the chance he got at Lockheed was plenty

    So,.... 3 weeks later and we don’t seem to know any more about motive than as the day after,

    That in itself is interesting.

    It is not, as investigations must exhaust all options and that takes considerable time.

    Ok,,, I will stand corrected. My assumption was the level of resources dedicated to this event would be at a completely different level than just about any other crime and normally there would be some info that would trickle out by now.

    I hope it doesn’t turn out a case of the guy being upset that his sushi wasnt comped .

    I'd be less offended by you just being a CTer rather than that last sentence (being I live in Vegas).

    The investigation will take some time, and I think we're seeing that people being accustom to instant gratification these days has made them forget how investigators operate here. Holding your cards close to your chest is important when you have to assure this isn't part of a bigger thing. And that's the irony. People start claiming nefarious behavior from the "powers that be" when they are utilizing protocol in line with successful investigating.

    before ufc 148 my friend and i went around and were playing the penny slots and got up to like $300. Vegas has been kind to me and given some very fun times.

    the penny slots are hilarious because they are all like Ghostbusters or Star Wars themed and you can play a penny or you can play 100 pennies.
