    puts us all of our gambling habits combined to shame...

    "...Caspersen repeatedly made a simple but risky bet that the value of the Standard & Poors 500-stock index would decline....During the early months of this year, that was a good bet... By February, Caspersen was up more than $115 million.

    If he had walked away, Caspersen would have been able to pay back investors and replenish his inheritance. Instead, Caspersen bet it all — again, said Shechtman. Over the next few weeks, the markets started to recover, pushing back into positive territory, and Caspersen lost more than $100 million."

    And he didn't even get a free drink lol.

    Anything else?

    BTW, is your trip on or off in July? I'll buy you a beer for your service to this fine country.

    I'm too old for pussy and 4 or 5 beers is about my limit. I don't like strip clubs or fancy restaurants.
    Fishing makes me happy, except the time I broke my leg.
    Good movies, good television, the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They make me happy.
    Playing good Craps and Blackjack makes me happy.
    Yes I am going 7/13 - 7/20. Golden Nugget 4 nights, Mirage 3 nights.
