Causing any sort of commotion or "man with a gun" or "shots fired" report, even an erroneous one, at a casino is so utterly foolish. That town knows where its bread is buttered... casino security and swat teams abound. Response will be chaotic but it will be super fast.

Go into the jeweler as a cleaning guy or a diamond bedecked model or something like that. Smash and grab.

I deal a hand of five card stud.

It is a pair of fives, jack high.

I deal a second hand.

What are the odds it beats the first hand?

The other two cards are technically relevant because the second hand could be 5-5-J-x-x and then we get into second kicker and third kicker situations. That is, unless you are suggesting that all of the cards are reshuffled and the first hand all gets put back in the deck, or the second hand is dealt from a new deck.

EDIT: I also need all the suits, changes Flush probabilities.

A stylist cannot use clippers to shave your neck hair below your hair line. It's as simple as coloring, so ridiculous. It's possible they can if you ask or do so illegally, if you ask.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

I'm not 100% sure but he kind of looks a lot like Sean Spicer.

More info:

The cards in the first hand are the 5 of Hearts, 5 of Clubs, Jack of Diamonds, 8 of Spades, and the 4 of diamonds.

The second hand is dealt from the remaining 47 cards.

If the second hand is also dealt 5, 5, J, 8, 4, the first hand wins.

This will be time consuming, hopefully someone has a spreadsheet that can do it easily. If not, I'll jump on this one in about two days when I have a free hour or so.

So for anyone that has Tmobile... we recently got our kids kindle fire and have been using our phones as hotspot for the internet. Well with 3 devices accessing internet from my wife's phone we burned through our data. With tmobile we get unlimited data but after 1 GB it slows down to a crawl. I went on the app to see how much it would be to upgrade. The prices are as follows. 1gb $0. 2gb $0 6gb $15

So we have had 1gb for a long time but we have the option to go to 2gb for free. So annoying that they don't just make everyone have the 2gb as the base. I bet if I would have called instead of looking online they would have sold me the 6gb and ignored the free upgrade to 2gb.

my last trip to vegas i was amazed at the high quality of some of the buskers on the street. there was a guy on freemont st. playing santana note for note on an electric guitar. having played guitar for a very long time i can say that he was fantastic. of course, they're not all great but i would give several of them 4.5 out of 5 stars. definitely worth the time to stop, listen and give a buck or 2 IMO.

I often hear that wine tasting is total B.S., and the experts can't tell the difference between red wine and white wine with food coloring, cheap wine vs. expensive wine, etc. etc., and there are even studies that demonstrate all of this.

But then I see those documentaries like Somm where they take a few sips and can tell you the brand of the wine, what type of grape was used, what country it came from, where in that country it was grown, and sometimes even the year it was made.

If wine tasting is B.S. then how are those sommeliers able to do all of that consistently over a period of years?
