Why don't you just claim they run around licking slots?

Or the seats.

I just assumed everybody knew that, along with the ashtrays as well.

What I don't understand is why on earth do the casinos still allow smoking and vaping within the casinos???

Because although smokers with poor hygiene do run around casinos unconcerned about health or cleanliness and do run around molesting slot machines and performing various and sundry despicable and unspeakable acts, they sure loose one heck of alot of money in the process.. One can argue about risk takers and smoking and homosexuality and left-handedness genes all you want but at all times the argument is settled by The Bottom Line.

Of course smokers are more likely to die from the Wuhan Corona Virus. One reason is they're more likely to contract it because they typically have poor hygiene and are less likely to care about how dirty or clean a slot machine, electronic gambling terminal or table game is.

can you list your proof or your train of thought about how the casino is somehow being Reckless by letting people smoke cigarettes with regards to the Coronavirus?

I have no idea why they don't shut down buses. That has to be about one of the worst places to be if you are trying to avoid getting it(along with all the other crap).

EB mentioned "The Stand" somewhere. There was a scene where one of the main guys had his people clean out a casino and he was just sitting there at one of the tables, having a meeting, all the slots still turned on but no players. If I was a casino manager at Wynn or wherever I would have to want to re-create that scene for a meeting with my top people.

Nice try.

I would argue the buses are now the safest place to be

This was the Port Authority NYC yesterday at 6pm. Yes on a Sunday but I have taken that particular time bus many times and it's a packed schedule



Buses are practically empty. There were many more people at the casinos

They are currently filming a new Stand miniseries for CBS All Access.

A lot of the story takes place in a deserted Las Vegas after most everybody has died from Captain Trips. Now would be a GREAT time for the filmmakers to go to Vegas and get some shots.
