Shouldn't that be in the land of odds?

Why did I think Wiz turned 50 last year ??? Maybe he made some reference to entering his 50th year, I don't remember.

Anyway, Happy Bday, Mike. Hope you get 50 more good years.

In Vegas, 50 years old is an advantage play. I know my partner gets all kind of crap, free play, match plays, senior spins, discounted meals and movies, all for having done nothing except having not died young. :/

Here, I'll start ya off with the old folks schedule.

Monday - Eastside Cannery (I guess Cannery, up north as well)
Tuesday - Jerry's Nugget, Hard Rock
Wednesday - Boyd properties, Stations properties, Silver7
Thursday - Tuscany, Palms, South Point

Here is one of my favorites that he gets, that I feel cheated that I don't get:

Boyd properties, Wednesday. Earn 50 points, you get a free breakfast or lunch buffet. Earn 100 points, you get a free breakfast or lunch buffet and a free dinner buffet. That really works out to a cost of a few pennies for 2 buffets. Oh and Sam's Town has a chocolate fountain at dinnertime....can't go wrong with that. :)
Just say no to 6:5 Blackjack, Continuous shuffle machines and Blackjack the Forum. All are Negative expected value.

Caught the news today, and the current oldest person is also born on May 23, (1899).

Another accomplishment will be outliving her.

Happy birthday Wizard. If you could tell a 21 year old version of yourself something what would you tell him?
They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.

Thank you everybody for the kind birthday wishes. My 50th was yesterday. We had a nice taco and margarita party at my place.

Yes, I will now be eligible for "senior" and "silver" promotions here in Vegas. I find it kind of insulting to be called a "senior" but I'll get over it for a cheap buffet.

I would say that you have to life your life as opposed to just passively watching it slip by. The opposite of "take it day by day." Instead, have big goals and work hard to achieve them.

I would tell my 21-year-old self how to talk to women, if I could, but I still haven't figured that part out.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

A woman either likes you or she doesn't.
If she doesn't, you'll never talk her into

Not so. Just tell her how wealthy you are. :)
