Stupidest thread ever. Somebody wish it to the corn field.



No, wait for Nathan to post the
'What Sign Are You' thread
before you call this the stupidist.
I'm just waiting to see how low
this forum can go from what it
was just a few years ago.

At least Ahigh talked about craps most
of the time. And he was entertaining.

Halloween costumes, 100 years ago.

Better / scarier than anything today.



I've always wondered if the photos weren't in black and white or sepia toned, would be find them less scary - additionally, it is all about the context of the time -- like this Easter Bunny seems insane to the modern age but, probably whimsical to the youth of the day:







































































Although, I could be wrong:

Wow, that's a priceless memory for any parent. Is this a photo from the kidnapper's house?

I'll come forward as the one who signed off on Nathan's Corner. As to my reasons, let me remind you of Nathan's first threads:

Dealers still making you play after you don't want to play anymore?
Good casino promotions?
Have slots been getting tighter nowadays?
Hi, I'm Nathan!
I am sick of "Cheap Kitchens," Spam Trolls!
I'm real sick of the Kentry implications.
Look, who is Kentry?
Mother nature, you Fiend! It
People, please throw away unwanted lottery slips!
Playing 2 slot machined at once? Faux pas?
Rude taxi drivers?
Saddest lottery stories?
Slots versus table games?
Steve Cyr seems like a cold hearted herk!
The lottery vs the slots?
This is so messed up!
Using points for food comps?
What are your peeves in casinos ?
Who would you save? Interesting question.

Now we can enjoy Nathan's thoughts and commentaries in one single corner of WoV, rather than spread all over the place. As to why not a blog, you can see Nathan engenders a high ratio of replies to her own posts. It is hard to keep a fluid discussion going in a blog.

Finally, to those who aren't exactly members of the Nathan fan club, let me offer a radical suggestion -- block her. The feature is there for a reason.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Smoke & fire in casinos. Run or walk?

Doors? I don't get it.
Why is the pool closed. Where did the water go?

So here it is, Nathan's Corner! :D

When I was about 6, I was an occasionally naughty child at school. Mr's Wood, the teacher made naughty children sit at the front desk nearest to her. After a few times there, I suggested to Mrs Wood, that it might save a bit of messing about if I just carried on using that desk. It still amuses me that I suggested it and we reached agreement: Probably my first 'Deal'.
A few weeks later, Miss DeVille, the headmistress came in and asked me what I'd done this time. It was rather satisfying to have Mrs Wood explain that I'd done nothing wrong. That was half a century ago and I remember it like it was yesterday.
What I'm getting at is that Nathan has now created and adopted this thread for all her little mischief posts. Right in full view of all of us. That might have been a good idea, or it might have been a tactical error.
I won't be surprised if others post to this thread all sorts of silliness and the thread may grow and grow. Maybe it will get tiresome and absurd.
But this IS Nathan's corner. It's the only place we will expect to see Nathan's random thoughts. A self imposed 'desk at the front'

Just a random thought of my own...
Does that sound fair Wizard, BeachBumBabs, Nathan, All?
