Philosophically, I'm thinking some folks are missing the gist of this. We are down the rabbit hole.

Many things affect the outcome of MDawg playing baccarat. For example, consider if MDawg is carrying a .44 magnum, the most powerful handgun on earth, which can blow your head clean off. Say he points it at the baccarat dealer and says, "I'm winning the next bet. Do you feel lucky today?" I don't even have to look at any cards, and I would be willing to wager that MDawg wins the next bet.

Now as to the consequences of winning that next bet, well, that would be up to casino security, God, and MDawg's private security force. But for the sake of argument, I could make a strong case that pointing the .44 magnum changes the probabilities. And if I were MDawg, that would be the hand I vary my bet size.



Dealer outwits everyone and plays faint. Drops to the floor and no cards can be dealt. Undercover agent happens to be having a drink at the bar behind them and shoots the kicks the gun out of MDawgs hand.

Ace2 , what do you want to know? Ask me anything in my thread here. Given DarkOz's example though, we're not allowed to discuss How To Beat The Casinos.

Is it now a craps shoot as to whether one will catch coronavirus, simply by going to Vegas?

I'm pretty darn sure the good majority of Americans either had it at some point and didn't know it or have it now and either know or don't know it. Sniffles..

You'd have to really be out of touch with your body and health to get coronavirus and not know it.

Even those who are coronavirus "symptomless" are only asymptomatic for a period of time, such as during the early period after catching it. Anyone who is in perfect health and active would feel at a minimum an unwelcome fatigue.

I suppose if you were a junkie or alcoholic and never sober and had cirrhosis of the liver you might not know it until the day you died too.

This is just not true. Now that they are testing athletes frequently, there are a bunch that are positive and they are saying they felt absolutely nothing. Nada. Zilch. They denied any 'unwelcome fatigue'. NO SYMPTOMS.

First off, in order to be considered in this "subset" one must have tested positive for coronavirus to begin with. Otherwise, who knows if one even had it, or not.

Among those who have tested positive, there are very few who may be described as asymptomatic. So, the numbers are very small to begin with.

Take away: the ones who are asymptomatic for a period of time, and later develop symptoms, and the subset is even smaller.

And then within this small subset, assuming we monitor them for a long period of time and they never develop any symptoms (an assumption which is impossible to make this early in the game): are we talking about people who are the picture of health who would detect the slightest anomaly in their makeup? Are you describing such athletes, or partying coke and potheads who are in pandemic induced off season?

You catch coronavirus, Soopoo, and you tell me you feel nothing, otherwise you're just repeating unverified hearsay.

What is not hearsay, is that people die from this, which means that the factual data tend to support symptoms, versus no symptoms.
