With todays internet and ability to access info almost anywhere, todays 18 year olds definitely have the "ability" to be smarter than prior generations. Whether they use this info wisely and/or responsibly is debatable and up to each individual.




That's wiser, not smarter.

Wisdom is the ability to use a known solution to a problem; intelligence is the ability to discover a new solution.

Harrah's was more aggressive about this (checking ID's) last week than any time I've ever seen. I asked, and they said an underage person stopped to watch a game at one of their properties recently. For about 2 minutes. Didn't try to play. Just watched. The fine was $70,000.


Holy cow. Do you know what property/what state this happened in? $70,000 for an underage patron who wasn't even a patron. Damn.

Really? Tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell peppers should make a lovely fruit salad. ;)

Cannot believe that I forgot the avocados and olives.

You can die for your country but can't drink nor gamble at a Vegas casino at 18. Messed up priorities.

Yeah, this idea in particular is one I struggle with. Buying fireworks and tobacco seen a bit more hazardous than gaming to me, but there are exceptions of course. It's interesting to me that there are certain things that are widely supported as we age (e.g. voting and fighting in wars) and others that are frowned upon like gambling and smoking. Drinking is widely accepted in comparison to smoking, though it is almost as problematic. It's all just very strange.

$70k for watching? LOL

I get carded more in Tunica/Vegas now than I did in 2011. Particularly Tunica. I probably get carded 5 times a trip, up from 1. Horseshoe Tunica gives security pocket ID scanners now.

Lower it to 15, it doesn't matter. It takes money
to gamble, that's why the average age in a Vegas
casino is 47. I think I read it's 53 in Indian casinos.
They're the ones with the money to gamble with.
