50 million died in 1918 from the pandemic

If that same amount dies globally now we wind up with a similar economic disaster as if we reopen.. only with the loss of loved ones

That’s less than 1% of the global population. A global depression would kill much more, even assuming it doesn’t culminate with world war 3.
It’s all about making that GTA

Sounds good

Except the last great depression showed a decrease in death rates not an increase.

I was pretty shocked myself but look it up

Such a bad business decision these casinos staying open this long. They'll be able to trace exposure right back to them, and even if the exposures would have happened to many people, people could wind up associating the illnesses with casinos anyway. People are saying around here, they think they already had this and didn't know it, but we don't have the deaths to back it up, just wishful thinking and denial. We still don't yet have the deaths for so many to be exposed and over it.

40,000 dead (morte!) last year from second hand smoke. In a general sense, casinos are one of the last vestiges of large swaths of people congregating indoors where we say “smoke away, no problem”. The stores, the arenas, Walmart, the offices...we mandate “no f**ing way”.

No problem with that exposure and death, right?

Just putting it all in perspective (and probably our hypocrisy) on the “bad business decision” front. I guess we are more than willing to tolerate a certain amount of worker and customer deaths over a KNOWN health hazard.

Apples to oranges. Sounds like there aren't enough places which allow smoking, your point is well received. Smokers need some affirmative action to deal with the discrimination and prejudice and ostracization.

I will bet you aNY amount of money they are not. the trajectory of infections will have nevada likely at the peak of infections around then so name a geographic area and propose how much you want to bet. I'll let you win if even 80% are open.

You know people are addicted to gambling when they start wagering on when they can start gambling again

Zenking said he would have his revenge on the casinos. I just wish he would have limited his wrath to the casinos.
