I'm guessing you have a typo saying that it will happen in 20 years at that rate...




You're right. I omitted a zero. I just amended the OP to say we'll reach a 1Q debt in 2073.

Thank you for the correction.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

whew, thanks, I'll delete all that

Bless me Father Michael, for I have sinned. It was the 2019 Halloween episode since my last confession. Here are my sins...

  • I've utilized betting systems while playing baccarat.
  • I blew through $200 in about 3 seconds while playing slots at McCarran airport.
  • I've broken the 9th Commandment by playing the Trips side bet in Ultimate Texas Hold'em, the Pair Plus side bet in Three Card Poker when the flush payed only 3 to 1 and, worst of all, bet on "Any 7" while shooting craps.
  • Finally, I wanted to play Pai Gow Poker, and there was an empty chair at the table, but the man I'd be adjacent to looked like a smelly Jabba the Hut and the mere thought of gambling next to him for several hours sickened me to the point that I retreated to the live Keno lounge and started drinking and buying $20 quick picks.

For these and all sins of my past life, I am truly sorry.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

just discovered by googling that the GDP of the entire planet is about 86 trillion dollars as of 2018. Just saying.

Question:

Vegas is currently moving away from the heavily themed resort concepts of circus tents, castles, Venitian canals, pyramids etc.

Instead, it now seems to be embracing a sleek, ultra modern look of no particular make or model.

Considering how much competition there is these days for the public's gambling and entertainment dollars, do you think this is the right direction for Sin City to be taking?

I've been missing the last few livestreams —the last one sounds like a good one (topic-wise)!

Looks as if the themed Vegas hotel question wasn't addressed?
