DID YOU SEE HOW I ADDED AN S ONTO VEGAS THEREBY ADDING THE WORD ASS TO THE TITLE?!? BAH-HAHAHAHAHA!!!
Radio silence last week was due to me being in Las Vegas for CES. It was a resoundingly successful trip if only because I managed to avoid last year’s sharfaganza. It was also successful because I gambled earnestly for the first time and actually enjoyed it. I stuck to the low bet 3 and 4-card poker tables, which are little more than slot machines with a dealer and cards, but it was exactly my speed. In one hand I went from being down $150 to being up $175, which was easily the coolest event of the week. When it was all said and done I went home down $15, so basically I paid $15 for a week’s worth of entertainment. Not bad’tall.
Originally, I started to write about how I have mixed feelings about Las Vegas. My point was that Vegas is a lot of fun, but it represents people and businesses at their absolute worst. The shameless desperation is palpable. But, as I am wont to do, what I originally wrote was flappy-headed and unnecessarily ranty. So whatever, the Vegas spectacle is worth it once every couple years, but it makes me sad for people. I will leave you with two things:
1. What happens in Vegas … is invariably recorded by untold numbers of cameras and microphones. And not just in the casinos. The streets are alive with recorders. Hell, even the cabs are equipped with cameras. Their precious city slogan is largely bullshit.
2. Look at these two pictures:
Tony, you are one of the few people that has the ability to make my laugh consistently. Thanks for that!
That would be make ME laugh consistently. You may also make my laugh, but I don’t really know what that means.
If only the beard were real.
Bwah hahahaha. Holy shit. You look like a Russian. I see a silly dance in your future. Beard head. Brilliant.
