    Now I don't feel so bad losing $300 at the Craps table.

    Interesting video, but I feel like the countdown numbers were off. They sorta went backwards.

    And I find it funny when discussing the former mayor of San Diego's video poker habit, they showed a nickel "One Eyed Jacks" machine being played. I play almost everything, but I can count the times I've played that game on one hand. The graphic also got her loss wrong. It was only $13M on $1B coin-in. A fairly respectable 98.7% return on her wagers. :eek:

    Well...let's think about that for a second. While we (and you know who we are) watch this and are astounded at the actual dollar value, my take is that "well, it ain't like they didn't have the money to spend in the first place!" Granted I can always re-run this movie in my head as I slink towards the exit after a losing night, think about the poor guy who doesn't have two nickels to rub together and he blows his whole paycheck and suffers the consequences.

    Sitting at the bar the other month, some kid (twenty something) comes up and asks for a few bucks, given that he lost his whole paycheck and needed to get back to Georgia. Obviously, I said no - and thought...either this kid is a gutsy-liar or shouldn't be in the casino to begin with.

    Still more ethical than Bob Filner.
