Not sure who or what you are on about mate, but a bit of humor is always welcome on my discussions. Anyone who's been in Asia knows full well the inuendeos and we don't expand on them so that is that. I might add that after an afternoon at the cock pit a man is full of gusto and beer and ready for shall we say action.

Yes humor is great, I love a dirty joke or play on words, even ones that involve private body parts. I just don't think its appropriate talk coming from a PRIEST.

Forgive me for trying to find an easy way to warn him that both his proposed activities are sinful and dangerous. You know Alex besides my handle, I'm not wearing my clerics electronically for all to see. There is advantage to anonymity that might allow me to speak a word of truth to someone without writing it off because it's what the priest would say or how the priest would say it. Rest assured I wouldn't say that in person to him, but I doubt very much that me and him travel in the same circles. Thank God I get to say anything at all to warn him.

So you are kind of like a sheriff as long as he takes off hos badge and gun he can now fight? I didn't realize a man of god could say or do anything as long as some anonymity is cast. I have no problem with the warning at all, Warn a way good father, warn away. We both know the context of your warning was a play on words when using the word cock, I was a bit shocked. Kind of like when you are a kid and you hear you teacher use the F word or smoking or even having sex with students.

Both?

1. Gambling in a third world casino...

2. Attending, enjoying, and gambling on cock fights where the animals are fighting to death....

3. Unprotected sex with complete strangers......

Isn't that three?

Greetings. I ended up at the NagaWorld Casino in Phnom Penh.

They have just opened a sportsbook linked to an internet outfit, all "legal". A very nice setting up on the second floor, nice seating and new TV's all over the place. Construction not done but as with most Cambodians, the writers were all kind and interested in me(they being female, me being a rich barang). Cambodians like to learn, something lost on many cultures and in many places.

So, they have things listed in I guess the UK format:

Manny "1.50"
Bradley "2.65"

This contrast with the American way of saying "200" for example for Manny meaning you win $100.usd for each $200usd wagered.

In the above example, based merely on a hunch, I'm betting Bradley at what we on here call "+165". When I left Bangkok, it was "+180". I don't know if the vig adjusted for a remote location, don't care, no choice at this point.

They also have several prop bets, round by round winner, go the distance, etc..

Good luck. It's dangerous out there.

You mean -200, right?

Yes, I mean in most sportsbooks I think of Manny being -200. which as you know, wager 200 to win 100. Hopefully that will be a moot point as Bradley will win at +165(for my $1000.usd wagered).

I got to meet the sportsbook manager. He's an American from Las Vegas, formerly at Caesars. Nice guy,explained how they were just rolling it all out, mostly soccer wagers now but they will have baseball and the NBA soon as well as be set up for the fall, college and professional football. Big money is wagered here at Baccarat and they assume good action will come on the sports. Sub contracted out for now but who knows in the future. $25,000.usd "limit" now on the soccer.

Pacquio is pushing 36. Prime age is 28. He hasn't knocked anyone out in 4 or five years. He's distracted by politics. His motor skills (speed) are in decline. He is no longer as good as his reputation makes him out to be.

I'm glad to hear that you made it to Phnom Penh even if you did miss your 'Lifetime opportunity' as you described how a trip to the Philippines to see the Pacquiao fight and attend a major cockfight would be. Have a good trip and good luck with your bet.
