*talk about your involvement in the background with various AP situations, such as Ocean Magic. At least how you knew about it and perhaps other situations before the public generally

*what is your take on the new video evidence about UFOs that the Navy is releasing to the public?

wow, thanks for including my questions, including some stuff from DT I didn't know you were making note of

Thank you for addressing my questions Wizard. I thought the conversation and debate was very interesting. While I can see Heather's point, that a player asking the casino to use cards with a specific back design, and asking the dealer to manipulate the orientation of the cards in the shoe so that his team could take advantage of a defect in the back design, was "marking", I look at it more as the player using information available to them within the rules of the wager in order to size their bet. The responsibility for agreeing to use cards that were not exactly the same on the back is on the casino, not the player.

Experts disagree with your earthquake advice. The best thing to do if the ground starts shaking is: "Drop, Cover, and Hold On". Trying to run to a doorway or outside actually causes more injuries due to falls, and being hit by falling or flying debris. Check out the Earthquake Country Alliance website for details.

Myth #5: Don’t be fooled!

“HEAD FOR THE DOORWAY.”

An enduring earthquake image of California is a collapsed adobe home with the door frame as the only standing part. From this came our belief that a doorway is the safest place to be during an earthquake. True- if you live in an old, unreinforced adobe house. In modern houses, doorways are no stronger than any other part of the house. You are safer under a table

I think Heather and I are at an impasse on that topic. As I said on the show, it comes down to the definition of the word "mark."

I guess I stand corrected. I'll do some research and issue a correction the next show if I conclude I was wrong. After the earthquakes here, I know I saw something on TV that gave the advice I did.

Here's a video from a classroom during the Loma Prieta quake in 1989. Note that the majority of the folks who tried to run either got stuck at the door, fell over furniture or other people, or were hit by debris falling from the ceiling. If you think about it, there aren't enough doorways, nor enough space in doorways for everyone. Also, you run the risk of getting your fingers pinched off when the swinging door slams shut.

I thought Heather dug in a little too much*, but they say to take opposite sides makes good entertainment for shows, while both agreeing on everything is boring. She seemed to miss the point on the Zombie thing. Yes you should destroy something out to eat your brains, but I am uncomfortable with enjoying knocking off something that is human-like. In fact most hunters agree there is a limited amount of joy to take from killing per se, no matter how much you like hunting as a whole, or it is perverse.

Regarding the Phil Ivy thing, she seems like a dealer who "drank the koolaid" , the same batch Paigowdan slurped. That might mean she would also take the opposite side on hole-carding . That would make a good segment!

*in a very womanish way, making me wonder what she would be like to be married to

Geez, a 5 p.m. class?! I was already chilling in my apartment, ready to watch some baseball!

But yeah, better to get under a table or desk. Those people could easily have tripped and gotten trampled.
