Interesting fact: Four babies are born each second and only two people die each second.



So the earths population increases by 172,800 people every day.

That sounds very high. Iím surprised the food supply is able to keep up with that.

Between genetic engineering and other improvements of production we have more food than we know what to do with. The issue is distribution.

For the second time in my life I was checked into a hotel room that was already occupied. How does that even happen? At least this time I could hear a tv and knocked so didnít barge in on them. Mistake like that could potentially go sideways real fast if someone thought it was an intruder. Ever happen to anyone else?

Itís happened to me at Borgata on 3 separate occasions.

Iíve been told that their system doesnít update immediately when a guest checks in. So that if 2 people are at 2 different check-in employees at the same time, the employees can give both the same room

It happens also with what are known as "Dead Runs" because these are entered into the system by hand.

DEAD RUN: Favored Player arrives and is COMPED to a certain good but not great suite and is told "just leave your bags immediately inside the door and tomorrow morning while you are in the casino we will send a Bell Man to your room who will deliver them to this Great Super Duper Comped suite worthy of a customer with your action.

Such runs are entered by hand and often involve transposition errors irrespective of screen refresh rates.

Its happened to me twice,once the room just had luggage in it,but the other time a guy was sleeping and i quickly backed out of the room.I was really scared he would wake up.
Also happened to me when I was in a room but I had the chain on so they couldn't get in.

I was staying with a friend who was comped at Encore and we opened our room to a sleeping Asian couple. They didnít seem impressed lol. We got a new room and this one came with a beat up pink teddy bear. Encore wasnít on their game that day.
