I think my friend got mugged by a hookers driver. Hookers are robbing their clients and I think the casinos are trying to prevent this
Born in Texas and lived in Texas my whole life.

When I lived in Vegas if you paid attention you noticed sirens all the time. Doesnít mean it was murder or even crime, But it certainly didnít make the place inviting. Iíve lived in two bigger cities and never noticed so many sirens.

Cops would only show up in my neighborhood if there were 20+ cop cars and they were arresting 50+ Mexicans. Otherwise it was a free fire zone with automatic weapons day in & day out.

Commander Data was king of all DI's in that episode! I bet there were all kinds of AP opportunities in that place.

But no, I don't think I would want to die alone in a casino in that, or any other scenario.



Data legit thought that hard 13 against a 10 was correct basic strategy. The episode played it out as if he was right and the woman was a fool for hitting. Worst episode ever, pardon my french. At least in the recent season of GLOW, when Sam tells Ruth to stand on 12 against a 3, it's forgiven cause he's a bit of an idiot.

He blew on the dice, and let the Texan's girlfriend blow on them, too... Pretty sure that's against the rules.



For a guy betting what he was betting, he could have swallowed the dice, shat them out on to the table four hours later (insert "passing the dice" joke here) and the roll would have counted.

When you lived in Vegas, did you live near a major highway or thoroughfare? I've noticed more sirens where I live in Oklahoma vs. when I lived in New York City or LA, but that's only because I live right near a highway and some major roads.

Plot twist: This scene happened after Data read the book up in the hotel room. Since everyone is acting out their characters from the book, Data "recognized" the scene of the woman being dealt those exact cards and asking the Texan if she should stand or hit. Data was subtly trying to tell her he knew she would bust so she should stand instead.

They weren't betting that much at the beginning of the session. They were only playing with the complimentary chips given to them by the front desk.

In a general sense....living safely, comfortably in Vegas is about one thing. Location, location, location.

Am I missing something? Is there anybody that would actually want to die alone in a casino?



It was a silly poll question just to get people talking, and I'm pleased it went from Star Trek-specific to actual issues in Vegas.

I've had a subconscious thought that when I'm old and I were to collapse at some random time, it'd be good to do so in a casino where security are monitoring the floor. Of course, if I'm alone in my hotel room, I'd likely be found by the housekeeper. I'd be OK with that if I'm staying in the casino in the first place.

Well thatís two different questions then ..

If youíre asking would someone prefer to collapse or faint or lose consciousness in a casino (not die) then yes it is probably a good location for that. Maybe right below a hospital/doctors office in terms of ranking the best places for that to happen.

But you asked if someone would want to die in a casino. That implies that whatever happened to you, you were not able to be saved no matter who was around.
