If I had to choose a way to die, always thought freezing to death would be my first choice, but it is quite unsettling before the calm and the calm might not be so peaceful. I'd build a guillotine. Think that's quick,relatively painless.



About freezing to death, it is interesting to note that before you die you feel hot. That is why in cases of death by freezing on places like Mount Everest you see the bodies nearly naked with cast off clothing all around.

When I nearly died from food poising, with a temperature of 105, I felt dreadfully cold. Strange.

As for the guillotine, your head might remain conscious for up to a minute after being decapitated. I would prefer a firing squad to that.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

You guys got to think of something more delightful. Like hitting the mega bucks jackpot and got a heart attack. At least you die laughing.(And you wife laughing too)

Censored rant.

Why can't you people post threads either without JARGON or EXPLAIN the JARGON in the INITIAL POST.

Did Vegas have a line on this?


Note: As to manner of death..don't worry... we all go the way we most fear!

Bridge jumper... I thought you were referring to Base Jumpers.

Who wants to make 5% easy money Tuesday night?

race 7 Prairie Sweatheart is a LOCK to finish first or second ( no show wagering bet early bet big)

No easy money there that I saw? If you think a horse like that, with no obvious class edge is a 1/20 shot to place, you are mistaken. And a harness race no less. Long time ago I had a friend Harry Commarata, AKA Hot Horse Harry, who was the security guard at Laurel Raceway. In harness races at that time, owners, trainers, etc. could not leave the paddock until the horses were on the move. Harry would sometimes open the gate, then race to the window about 40 feet away to place a bet for himself or an owner.
One night there was a 1/9 shot that looked unbeatable. Talked to Harry about betting an exacta with a longshot second. Harry whispered " Don't do it " I said WTF or something like that. Harry said the wheel might fall off in the backstretch second time around. Damn'd if it didn't.

I think you mean Rosecroft. Laurel runs only thoroughbreds. Remember Bowie?

bzzzzzzz

I've resolved that once a year I must say "Buzzard is right." It's late enough this year that I'm starting to feel a chill in the air, but now I get to check that box for 2016.

In my opinion, trotters (harness "racing") is pretty much the b*strd child of an illicit tryst in a port-a-potty between jai-alai, dog racing, and cock fighting. Reasons for me to ever bet on it: If I'm I'm rock-solid dead-sure that I'm in on the fix, and it is Buzzard's money I'm playing with. Similar to thoroughbred "racing" in Manila, only much more so. For a while living in Manila I was occasionally let in on the fix by some local friends. Trotters at Pompano? I'm not in on the fix, and not gonna be. This is all good, because I know that I'm not. Just IMO, FWIW, etc.

Fans of harness racing as a sport are welcome to feel otherwise; both of them, worldwide. I see the betting handle at what I think pass for 'major' harness tracks is generally < $50k/race, which might almost come close to the sum of parking fees but probably not cash hotdog sales at actual racetracks, with the wagering liquidity provided by their eight to ten-million dollar daily handles at Belmont, Santa Anita, etc. The liquidity of a betting market can matter a lot for the potential of a lot of different scams. But if y'all actually do enjoy it, by all means, have at it. If that's not really what's going on with that for ya, remember it is best to leave the food stamp card at home when the month is so young. Still just IMO, yadda, yadda.
