I've been to casinos in KS, NE, SD, OK, IA, WI, MI, MS, MO, and OR. I went to Indian casinos in all of these states. I've won in KS, OK, SD, and OR. The most I won was at the Cheyenne Arapaho Lucky Star Casino. I won $700.00 on a quarter machine. I've won $250 on nickel machines at the Cherokee Hard Rock Casino in Catoosa and the Quapaw Downstream Casino near Baxter Springs, KS. It's nice to know most of the non-Indian uneducated trolls are on here. And yes tribes like the Prairie Band Potawatomi and Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians own their own casinos. Nice to hear dummies talk.

Pay taxes in Lawrence to support an ongoing bad experiment with USD 497 and your money is soon departed. At least at the Casino you can order dinner.

“Yes, I have been to them but I hate casinos.”

I hate burning my chest with cigarettes, but I do it anyway. Issues. Casinos are really generous. Cheap flights to Vegas, free food and drink, and an ashtray at every slot machine. Also, you might notice there are no windows or clocks in casinos. Most of them are 24/7 and they don't want you to know what time it is. I went into one on Aug. 1996 and when I left it was May of 2002. Boy, did I need a shower and shave! I'm still trying to figure out what all this internet and digital stuff is about.

I guess that part of today's lesson is : Don't cast too stinky of bait out into the water; because it might make the fish throw rocks back at you. I suppose that artificials and plastics are the only allowable kind in these water...you cain't use no live bait, just like Roaring River.

I almost went to that one up by Holton, but I heard Dave Mathews was gonna be playing there, so I ran the other way.

Hollis, Hell ya... I'm out of almond milk anyway. After my last experience there, I need a good dance partner.

I'm thinking g-rock would dance with us too, but from the sounds of it, we would have to pay her.

I do casinos usually only when I travel...if I'm on vacation and there is a decent one there, I'm there, but usually with someone else's money.

Last casino I was in was the Hard Rock in Tampa on a Friday night which was a lot of fun. Lots of fun for me while the boy was working the machines!

Once, on the redneck riviera. I put a $10 token down a one-armed bandit and lost. 7 months later Katrina made the place go away.

Forget the casino. I'm headed to the Merc to do some dancing. Ronaldo, I'll see ya there. I might even take my shirt off, my preferred way to vogue when I dance. If you have any blood in your body at all, you can't help but dance to this little ditty. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bb6cBK...

Somedude, have you ever seen a grown man nekked? Do you ever hang around the gymnasium? Do you like movies about gladiators?

Never been, but I haven't ruled it out.

Only for the all-you can-eat buffet. Um, guess what? Casinos are very much for-profit organizations. Take the welfare check and buy groceries instead. Anyway, enough of this. I'm still looking for Whit's End.

I wonder how ex-patriot is in Bangalore? I can only imagine, fat and happy at the company masseur or back in her bedroom at the folks until something turns up.

"They are in Mumbai..."

I once knew a expatriate from Kansas that enjoyed going there.

"Casinos should be outlawed except for the ones run by Native Americans"

Most Indian casinos aren't run by Indians.

Casinos should be outlawed except for the ones run by Native Americans.........the new buffalo and a way to get their money back one quarter at a time from people who don't understand probability.

Guessing you have to paint with a broad brush sometimes when you have to keep others from making real or imagined libelous statements a bazilion times a day That 'flush' button must be set on extra sensitive with some of the recent antics about golfing and hunting from a kayak while looking for bones in the garden or something.

Renaldo just hope for a north winds at night. Good luck and yes, PTSD needs to be discussed.

I saw Elvis standing outside of a casino. Sure shocked me with those sideburns and hip moves.

RI can take care of himself. I once saw him shoot a golf ball floating on the river from 1000 yards.

R_I nothing, I think that was mine. I declare a thumb war. That comment was not inapropriate. I did not call anybody a name or threaten anything. Merely a piece of advice with a brief analogy..which is not a TOS violation.

Once to the boats in Kansas City and once to Vegas. Not really my thing. I don't like giving away my money. The casinos are set up to allow 30% winners. Don't like those odds. Knowing Andini is a gamble enough for me.

AR by the bed, great idea. Doesn't everybody? Who sleeps? Perimeter clear. Stand down.

Sure.

Not very good at it so not that often.

Seems like the odds are stacked against you and I have trouble playing games at such a disadvantage.

flux, People seem to always be getting hurt, injured, or something... Dang blasted Lifeflight helicopter comes blazing over my compound at about 150', landing light ablaze, blades slapping the air, the concussive effect shaking the house with its incessant WHoomp WHoomp Whoomp Whoomp cadence.
I awake, and for an instant, I can not move. I hear sound, I see lights, I feel vibrations, but I am paralyzed, put the parasympathetic portion of my nervous system shoots impulses to my heart, the medulla of my adrenal gland dumps epinephrine throughout my body. That 100th of a second over, I bolt from bed, grabbing the AR. I not quite fully cognizant of who is coming to get me and why, but I know there is danger, and I am flying down the stairs to meet it.

Damn aircrews need to pick a different flight path, especially if they have to fly that low to avoid pressurization issues.
If it is not a pressurization issue, and they just like bothering the hell out of me, it will be on. Bring it. It takes hours to get to sleep after that.
Not trying to be the fastest gun... Just blame/thank that errant lifeflight aircrew that likes to shake the hell out of the structures on my compound.

Once. Delivered two pallets of playing cards to a casino in KC. Security on playing cards is very high, with sign off sheets accompanying each shipment as possession changes prior to delivery. Any compromise of cartons, packing material or paperwork can get shipment rejected.
