Both you and Heather have discussed the various big Vegas shows you have seen. My wife and I, however, prefer lounge lizard acts, the cheesier the better. Do either of you recommend a classic Vegas lounge act to catch? Is there an old act you have fond memories of?

Questions for Heather:

The original Star Trek is long gone, were you a fan of any of the offshoots?

What science fiction on TV do you watch now, if anything?

Question: Do you think APs sometimes ignore the fact that a +EV situation can become -EV once the tax implications kick in? Do many or most APs practice tax evasion as a result?

I would guess over 99% of all gamblers are avoiding claiming all of their wins on taxes.
Living longer does not always infer +EV

Can you comment on current IRS laws regarding reporting gambling winnings for the recreational gambler? They seem very unfair if you take the standard deduction. Has there been any push to change them to be more fair?

I would think that this would only apply to part-time AP's. Don't full-time AP's report their profit (wins minus losses and expenses) as self-employment income?
