I thought it was KYC Know Your Customer. Maybe just a different sheep in wolf's clothing, as the saying goes.



You are absolutely correct. I don't know why I said KYP, it is KYC.

The TV series Vegas from a decade ago with James Caan seemed to emphasize money laundering prevention tactics. Like if you buy-in for $5000, gamble for 15 minutes and cash out, that would get you a visit from the casino owner and his thugs.

Just the other week, a guy next to me strolling up to the craps table was being hassled by a suit. The player had a match play in his hand and was about to do a doey-don't with it. The suit said to the guy something about "You've already talked to the vice-president of the casino and he never wants to see you do that again!"
What? Was it his match play? I don't know, and nobody told me why. But that is not something I want to hear in a casino except to hear it once, said to someone else. The player played on, a bit rattled. Should I have left the table? You know somebody's watchin'.



I would not put much stock in that show

There was one episode where they used x-rays from their ceiling cameras to detect who was carrying a concealed handgun

That show is filled with anti-cheat and anti-AP fantasy devices

If we have a Carrington event then chances are your car will still work. There is some protection there and it's unlikely to trash your car.

A few years ago when in Florida, a small part of Tampa experienced an extended internet outage. A local strip Subway didn't have internet for three days and consequently couldn't process cards. While eating there on two of the days I watched patron after patron walk in and back out because they didn't even have enough cash for the sandwich! It was also interesting to see how many people didn't' read the sign on the door saying that they couldn't take cards because of the outage.

Carrington event? I assume you meant catastrophic even but perhaps not and there is somthing called a Carrington event?

Did you not watch Dynasty? A Carrington event is when a season ends on a cliffhanger- Who shot JR, who survived the Moldavian Massacre. Its code used by pseudo intellectuals.

Did it have Ninjas or naked girls?

I was kinda too young for that show when it started. I was probably old enough to watch it, but it wasn't something I would be into at that time. I have since seen various documentaries about the 80's where they talked about the Dynasty craze and it was fascinating.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_storm_of_1859

The solar storm of 1859 (also known as the Carrington Event)[1] was a powerful geomagnetic solar storm during solar cycle 10 (18551867). A solar coronal mass ejection (CME) hit Earth's magnetosphere and induced one of the largest geomagnetic storms on record, September 12, 1859. The associated "white light flare" in the solar photosphere was observed and recorded by British astronomers Richard C. Carrington (18261875) and Richard Hodgson (18041872). The now-standard unique IAU identifier for this flare is SOL1859-09-01.
