Thank you for answering my question about kids and calculus!

My next question:

As a collector of stuff, have you thought about what your kids will do with them after you go to the great math lab in the sky?

I still have much of my parents' stuff, and am hoping my kids will appreciate my stuff like 8-bit computers — but I think they don't.

Mike and Heather are missing from the live stream today, lol. There are 12 of us on there waiting on there right now. I think they forgot they changed the time of the stream.
OFFICIALLY and justifiably reclaimed my title as SuperHotBlonde!

Question for AMA Jan 21

Hello Heather; Hello Wizard! I’m a resident of New Jersey and I’m interested in opening an online account at the Golden Nugget Casino here in Atlantic City, NJ. 



My wife and I are concerned as to the legality of online gambling. Can you explain the laws concerning online gambling in NJ, and perhaps a little about the process of responsibly paying state and federal taxes on winnings.

Question
Vegas is a town that's always rebuilding and reinventing itself. As local residents, can you or Heather ever recall a time when the cityscape didn't include at least a few giant cranes amongst all the glitz and glitter?

I don't know if this young lady is math oriented but she does jigsaw puzzles, has 85k followers and she is super nerdy. Maybe Wizard would be interested as a POI for his channel. I remember he had some super hard puzzle and she does those kind of things.

Addendum

Karen Puzzles on YouTube



As metioned, the game "Flushed" has begun a field trial at the Strat. This game appeared at the 2019 Cutting Edge conference. The WOO website did not make a video of it but Heather made the one below (in which the Wizard makes a cameo) for her Vegas Aces website...



Note that the above is the roulette-style, big-table version where players have their own color chips.

The next video is a tutorial and shows the blackjack-style table with individual betting areas...



Note that the video shows 6 player positions. The version now on trial at the Strat, however, has only 4 player positions.

Question
After decades of talk, there is now new talk of building a bullet train that connects Southern California to Las Vegas via the I-15 corridor. Considering the new administration is pro rail, would you bet for or against this new talk amounting to anything?


Question
Wizard: Colonel Mustard, Professor Plum or Mr. Green?

Heather: Miss. Scarlet, Mrs. Peacock or Mrs. White?

In the Wizard of Odds Oz, the classic movie, do you think the director wants the Tin Man to deliberately sabotage Dorothy's balloon escape, or do you think it was something else, such as sloppy directing? this came up in DT, http://diversitytomorrow.com/thread/3383/0/#post162818
the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

Couple things.

First, great question on the Wizard of Oz. I couldn't help but comment on it at DT.

Second, I am sorry, but I have to postpone the next livestream until Feb 25.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
