Thanks for answering my questions today on air. I enjoyed Heather’s “rant”.

I found your “Limitless” answer a surprise. I don’ t recall how it worked out for Bradley Cooper’s character in the end.

You're welcome! Happy to take more. Contrary to what I said yesterday, the next LiveStream will be July 18.

What would your jeanie's wish have been? I would take the "limitless" ability without the side effects. And it did work out for him anyway, as he used to take the pill in the right dosage.

I was just thinking that being made of liquid metal, like in Terminator 2 and 3, would be cool. I'd be a vigilante fighting crime.

my comments on the latest:


*Mike evidently missed the discussion about dna testing at DT or would have mentioned it


*how is it possible that ashkenazi is spelled ashke-nazi? 


*you can't tell me Heather doesn't have a thing for the Wizard


*I am all for shooting zombies, but is wanting to kill them a healthy thing? I have always been bothered by that. 


*I was surprised Michael had duck and cover nuclear war drills as a kid, I thought those got dropped everywhere by the time he came along


*I think my question, offered ahead of time in this thread, was a victim of TLDR-itis

I recall having them at Weaver elementary school through 6th grade, which would have been 1976. We didn't have very many, especially compared to earthquake drills. I also recall in high school having one, and that was the early 80's.

I lived close to the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Base, not to mention Los Angeles, so figured I would be one of the fortunate ones to be killed immediately in the event of a full blown nuclear war.

Save it for next time.

In anticipation of next week's Live Stream having an "Ask Me Anything" segment:

- Eldorado's recently announced merger with Caesars will probably result in layoffs. If there's a strike, would you cross the picket line for a really juicy promo?

- Two players, call them Heather and Mike, are playing a game. They each put in $5 and decide that the winner of the pool will be decided by a best of 5 coin toss. Heather takes heads and Mike takes tails. After three flips, Mike is ahead 2-1 when an earthquake hits, interrupting the game. Due to post-quake conditions, the game can't continue. Mike proposes that he be declared the winner since he was ahead when the game was interrupted, but naturally, Heather objects. Mike counters with an offer of a 2-1 split. Should Heather accept the offer? If not, what is a fair offer?

- If I'm playing craps, and an earthquake hits just as the dice are settling on a winning point, changing it to a losing seven, will I still get paid?

Thanks for the questions, Aye. Today is the next live stream and I'm seeking some more. Sorry for the short notice.
